The Problem With “Historic”

You hear it all the time – so and so is “historic” because of their skin color, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or some other meaningless characteristic. Democrats seem to celebrate those “accomplishments” almost exclusively. This person is “historic” because they’re the first non-binary weirdo to hold whatever job they’ve just been hired for. Honestly, who cares? If who you sleep with defines who you are, you aren’t worth knowing. Yet, these irrelevant characteristics are what the left celebrates, and in many cases, all they see. It’s dehumanizing to the people being “celebrated” and an attempt to control everyone else.

First off, let us start with the new phenomenon of “pronouns.” If anyone has their pronouns listed on social media avoid them at all costs. Don’t befriend them, and do not hire them. They are a victim in search of something to blame for their failure, likely with a lawyer on speed dial, if not a retainer. Victimhood is their true profession.

The thing about pronoun insistence is it’s the ultimate in control. When you speak with a person you don’t refer to them with third-person pronouns, or even their name, you just talk to them like a normal person. So the pronoun use only comes into play when you’re talking about them with others. These piles of garbage want to control how you refer to them when they’re not around, ultimately controlling you. Never, ever comply. It’s the gateway drug for submission.

You saw this on display in stories about allegedly serial luggage thief Sam Brinton. Touted as the “first non-binary” person appointed to a political position in government, this mutant was billed as “historic!” for that very reason. His firing was just as historic, being the first weirdo fired for stealing people’s suitcases, but it didn’t get the same amount of coverage as his appointment. 

The same goes for Rachel Levine. The mentally confused man was known for ordering nursing homes in Pennsylvania to accept COVID positive patients at the start of the pandemic, causing thousands of deaths, while moving his mother out of one without telling the public. But because he thinks he’s she he is billed as “historic” and was promoted to Assistant Secretary for Health in the Biden administration.

If you’re some kind of mentally confused gender dysphoria-suffering Democrat you are “historic” and literally cannot fail, even while advocating for the butchering of the bodies of children to suit your delusions. 

If you are gay, same thing. If you are not white, same thing. It’s funny how the whitest man to ever hold the presidency, with a long and storied history of racism, is milking having the first gay, black press secretary in history as if it’s one of his (limited) accomplishments.

If you play the left’s game, Karine Jean-Pierre is “historic” for those reasons. If you live in reality, Karine Jean-Pierre is “historic-ally” bad at her job, quite probably the worst. She can’t answer basic questions without reading them from a script provided to her, likely by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. Any self-respecting person who’s quit over being forced to serve as a puppet to a senile clown, but KJP is historic!

The term “historic” is tossed around like it’s an accomplishment in and of itself. It is not. Elizabeth Holmes, for disgraced former CEO of Theranos, was declared “historic” because she was the first female Silicon Valley billionaire and was immediately put on magazine covers and every “people to watch under 30” list the left-wing media had to offer. The only problem is no one was watching her. She was a con artist who ripped off investors of billions. They were too busy celebrating her gender to bother to look at whether or not she was a fraud. It wouldn’t have taken much to see it, but it’s amazing what people can miss when they deliberately do not look for it.

Attaching the label “historic” to everything they love, Democrats have stripped it of its meaning related to actual accomplishments. They do not celebrate accomplishments – Elon Musk is a prime example of someone who has made truly historic developments in his fields of business and who is demonized because of his skin color, gender, and, most importantly because he’s exposing the power-plays of the left through Twitter. Musk is more accomplished than anyone Democrats celebrate, and in fields, they insist are wildly important to their agenda (electric vehicles and space travel), but he’s the wrong configuration of human. If he weren’t white or were gay… lookout. (Not now, of course, he’s on the enemies list for wrong-think, but before.)

Simply declaring someone to be “historic” ignores whether or not they’re qualified; whether or not they are capable of doing a job and, more importantly, whether or not they’re any good. The moon landing was “historic” and so were the Hindenburg and Titanic, just for very different reasons. Individuals are no different.

Individuals are only to be elevated if they are configured in certain ways, ways useful to Democrats. That’s slightly better than the Soviet Union, but only slightly. To a normal person, that seems like the opposite of the reason for existence or at least any way to get joy from it – your only value is found in immutable characteristics. The real reason to celebrate anyone is their actual, verifiable accomplishments. That is exactly what the left is trying to prevent, quite possibly because they have none. It would explain why they’re such miserable people.
