And this year ends with our loser ruling class shedding any pretense of legitimacy in its quest to reclaim the power we took back from it in 2016. The reaction to Donald Trump by our alleged betters - SPOILER: They are much, much worse than us - is instructive. They have abandoned all the principles they once claimed to support - democracy, civil rights, due process, and equality. None of those principles help them to keep or regain power anymore, so they are expendable. As are you.
Liberalism was always a lie and a scam, right from its sordid beginnings among the progressives with their creepy messianic fervor, their infatuation with “expertise” (and hence, their embrace of evils like eugenics), and their contempt for the Constitution. Liberals consider themselves the anointed, divinely entitled to rule over us lesser folk, and they aren’t going to let anything get in the way of retaking the throne.
And this time, they mean never to give it up again.
Remember democracy? Yeah, I know this is a republic, but the word “democracy” is established as shorthand for the idea that every citizen should be able to participate in his/her/xir own governance so I’m using it that way (and yeah, I know modern liberals are nothing like classical liberals. Just stop.).
Where’s the democracy? You have Democrats establishing a one-party state in California, changing the laws to cement themselves in power and there’s not a peep from the liberal media guardians. But libs lose in Georgia and Florida on a fair playing field and it’s terrible awful horrible - they’ll have to cheat better next time. Cheating is okay, because they are entitled to rule. So illegals voting, because they do, and Democrat voter fraud, which is a thing even if the media denies it, are not problems to liberals. They are solutions.
The problem is you.
You want to have a say in our government and, well, look what happens when you do. You elect the wrong people. People like Trump.
Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit was supposed to be president, you ingrates. And if those Russian trolls with their $100,000 in Facebook ads hadn’t convinced a bunch of idiots in Wisconsin and Michigan to vote for Trump, she’d be president. She was counting on those idiots! Those idiots were hers by right!
Liberals, aided and abetted by their Fredocon serfs, who want their own cruddy little sinecures back and know the key to regaining them is slavish obedience to the elite, don’t want democracy. They want to use the system to lock themselves into power and lock you out in the cold.
And then there’s the push for unaccountable bureaucrats to control the wrongly elected. Unelected SecDef Mattis was supposed to rein in the elected President and limit his ability to exercise the powers of his office? I must have missed that day in Con Law. And the DoJ should be walled-off from the President (well, this president - there was no wall between Obama and Holder)? So, what elected officer accountable to the people would oversee our justice system?
None. And that’s how the elite wants it - exercising awesome powers with zero accountability to us peasants.
Civil rights? Those are an obstacle to liberal power. Understand that they want and expect and demand free speech for themselves and their allies, confident that such free speech will absolutely conform to their dogma. But free speech for you? Forget it. You have bad and wrong thoughts, and those thoughts are dangerous. Why, speech is violence!
You must be silenced, while they never shut up. Anyway, if you are talking you can’t be listening to them, and if you aren’t listening to their commands how can you expect to obey?
The fascist regimes on our college campuses are not an aberration but a model - if they get their way, all America will be one giant university, with an overpaid parasite class overseeing the indoctrination of us Normals and carefully controlling our speech, if not our thoughts.
Freedom of religion? Well, if you worship the leftist Baal you’re cool. If your allegiance is to God, well, maybe they’ll let you do that in your own house if you are quiet about it and never try to put it into practice.
And forget having guns. An armed people is a free people, while a disarmed population is a flock of serfs. Guess which one the liberal elites wants?
In the UK, the elite told them to give up their weapons. Why, a civilized people has no need of a check on the benign, benevolent elite! And now, in Britain, they arrest and jail people for speaking words.
Let me say it again - now, in Britain, they arrest and jail people for speaking words.
And that’s the goal here. They’re already deplatforming people through their Monster Tech (thanks, Ace of Spades!) pals. Their goal is to eventually do it via people with guns and badges, because if you can say what you want it means you can think what you want and they can’t tolerate that.
Due process? Ask General Flynn about that farce. Looming Doofus James Comey intentionally broke protocols to send over a couple of FBI agents to entrap him. It worked. Threats and intimidation caused a guilty plea for lying to the Feds - but Comey and McCabe and Clapper and all the rest of that sorry crew lied under oath to Congress’s collective face, and none have, and none never will be, indicted. Why would the elite indict their own members? After all, the purpose of the law is no longer to create rules that allow people to live lives in orderly peace. The law is now steamroller designed to crush opponents of the Permanent Regime.
And equality - have you noticed how the super-rich are almost exclusively liberal Democrats? If you haven’t, you’ve been in a coma. Lucky you, because it's been horrible to watch the mutation of our country from one with a great, prosperous middle class into a country made up of the rich and the perpetual supplicants. The death of the middle class is no coincidence; it’s the result of enemy action. After all, the people in the middle class get uppity. They have expectations beyond a few scraps distributed by the government. The middle class expects to have a say, and that just will not do.
The election of Donald Trump ripped off the mask of our elite. They are no longer pretending to seek anything but their own personal power. And in doing so, they are destroying the United States of America. My novels about our country splitting apart into red and blue nations, and the resulting chaos, are supposed to be fiction, not how-to manuals.
The liberal elite’s reaction to the infection of conservative populism is like an autoimmune reaction gone out of control. It might well kill the host, but they don’t care. America is expendable. So are you.
