WHY AMERICA IS WITNESSING A BRAZEN POWER GRAB?

George Floyd

AFTER TWO MONTHS OF WRITING AND POLITICAL CHAOS THERE IS STILL PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO CLAIM THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THERE ARE. SOME OF THEM ACTUALLY BELIEVE IT. THE LIBERAL MOM WHO LIVES NEXT DOOR TO YOU FOR EXAMPLE. SHE IS PROBABLY ENTIRELY SINCERE WHEN SHE LECTURES YOU ABOUT THE SCOURGE OF POLICE BRUTALITY, SHE MEANS IT. WE ARE NOT JUDGING AND THAT’S NOT SURPRISING. MOST AMERICANS ARE NICE PEOPLE. THEY ARE LITERAL AND INGENUOUS AND THEY TEND TO TAKE CLAIMS AT FACE VALUE BECAUSE I WANT TO BELIEVE THE BEST. BUT IN THIS CASE THEY ARE WRONG. NONE OF WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING IS ABOUT CIVIL RIGHTS. VIOLENCE AND RACE BAITING ARE THE ENEMY OF CIVIL RIGHTS. 

WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING INSTEAD IS A POWER GRAB. THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. THEY ARE NOT LIKE YOU AT ALL. WHEN NORMAL PEOPLE WANT SOMETHING, THEY CAN BE AGGRESSIVE BUT THE PROFESSIONAL LEFT NEVER IS. THEIR FIRST INSTINCT IS TO MANIPULATE RATHER THAN PERSUADE, AND THEY SAY PRECISELY THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT THEY MEAN EVERY TIME. THEY ACCUSE YOU OF THE CRIME THAT THEY THEMSELVES ARE COMMITTING. 

IT MAKES YOUR HEAD SPIN AND ARGUING WITH THEM IS POINTLESS. THEY CARE ONLY ABOUT POWER. IT’S PAINFUL TO SAY THIS AND IT HURTS TO ADMIT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY WHO ARE LIKE THIS BUT THERE ARE. AND IF THEY HAVE MORE POWER THAN EVER. IF YOU NEED MORE EVIDENCE OF THAT, BARACK OBAMA SHOWED UP AT CONGRESSMAN JOHN LEWIS’ FUNERAL TODAY AND OBAMA CLAIMS HE WAS THERE TO EULOGIZE HIS FRIEND AND THAT’S NOT TRUE AND THAT’S NOT WHAT HE DID. INSTEAD OBAMA GAVE A DIVISIVE AND DEEPLY DISHONEST CAMPAIGN SPEECH IN CHURCH. IT IS PART OF WHAT HE SAID.  

BY ENDING SOME OF THE PARTISAN GERRYMANDERING SO THAT ALL VOTERS HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE THEIR POLITICIANS, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. AND IF ALL THIS TAKES IS ELIMINATING THE FILIBUSTER, ANOTHER JIM CROW RELIC, IN ORDER TO SECURE THE GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS OF EVERY AMERICAN, THEN THAT’S WHAT WE SHOULD DO. IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT CLIP IS REAL BUT IT IS. DOWN TO THE FAKE ACCENT, MR. HAWAII GUIDE. IMAGINE IF SOME GREASY POLITICIAN SHOWED UP AT YOUR LOVED ONE’S FUNERAL AND STARTED THROWING AROUND STUPID PARTISAN TALKING POINTS ABOUT SENATE PROCEDURE. 

Angry Donald Trump


CAN YOU IMAGINE? YOU WOULD BE SHOCKED IF THAT HAPPENED. DESECRATING A FUNERAL WITH CAMPAIGN SLOGANS? WHAT KIND OF PERSON WOULD DO THAT? DEMOCRATS IN THE AUDIENCE DIDN’T BLINK, THEY CHEERED. IT ALL SEEMED NORMAL TO THEM AND WHY WOULDN’T IT? POLITICAL POWER IS THEIR RELIGION. IT’S NOT OUT OF PLACE, IT’S THEIR RELIGION. PEOPLE WHO POLITICIZE A FUNERAL WILL DO ANYTHING AND THEY ARE TRYING TO. DEMOCRATS ARE WORKING SYSTEMATICALLY TWO DISASSEMBLED THE CORE INSTITUTIONS OF AMERICAN LIFE BEGINNING WITH THE FAMILY AND OF THE FAITH. 

THEY ARE SUBVERTING THE COURT SYSTEM IN OUR GOVERNMENT, THE JUSTICE SYSTEM. THEY ARE NULLIFYING LAWS, ATTACKING COURTHOUSES AND WORKING TO ELIMINATE. THEY SYSTEMATICALLY REPURPOSED FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AND THEY ARE POSITIONED AS POLITICAL OPPONENTS. THEIR LEADERS HAVE CALLED TO MAKE ALL THESE CHANGES TOURNAMENT, PACKING THE ELECTORATE ITSELF BY IMPORTING TENS OF MILLIONS OF NEW VOTERS. WHY ARE THEY DOING ALL OF THIS? THEY TELL YOU IT’S TO MAKE THE COUNTRY BETTER AND MORE JUST FOR THE COUNTRY ISN’T IMPROVING AND IT’S NOT MORE FAIR. THEY ARE DOING THIS FOR ONE REASON, TO ENSURE THEY HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE UNITED STATES. WE ARE WATCHING IT HAPPEN RIGHT NOW ALTHOUGH ALMOST NO ONE EVER ADMITS IT AND THOSE WHO DO COME CLOSE TO GETTING SHUT DOWN. WE COULD TELL YOU STORIES. SO HOW SHOULD THE REST OF US RESPOND TO WHAT WE ARE SEEING? 

WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT CONSERVATIVES FOR PEOPLE WHO WATCH THE SHOW, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT LITERALLY EVERYONE ELSE. MODERATE, PEOPLE WHO DO CARE ABOUT CIVIL LIBERTIES, AND THERE ARE SOME OF THOSE. IMMIGRANTS FROM ABROAD WHO CAME TO THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE OF OUR BILL OF RIGHTS ONLY TO WATCH IT EVAPORATE ONCE THEY GOT HERE. IN OTHER WORDS, EVERYONE WHO FUNDAMENTALLY LOVES THIS COUNTRY WHICH IS STILL MOST AMERICANS, WHAT ARE PEOPLE LIKE THAT DOING IN THE FACE OF THIS REVOLUTION? IT’S SIMPLE. DEFEND THE SYSTEM THAT WE HAVE. THAT’S OUR JOB. THE AMERICAN SYSTEM IS FLAWED, NO ONE DOUBTS THAT. 

BUT IT WORKS BETTER THAN ANY OTHER SYSTEM IN HISTORY. TEARING IT DOWN WILL NOT HELP, AND IN FACT IT WILL BENEFIT ONLY A FEW OF THE ONES PUSHING FOR IT AND WILL CRUSH MILLIONS. SO IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE UNITED STATES, FIGHT FOR ITS INSTITUTION. THIS COUNTRY HAS SURVIVED ALMOST 250 YEARS THROUGH A CIVIL WAR. LET’S KEEP GOING. THE PRESIDENT THIS MORNING VENTED HIS FRUSTRATIONS ON TWITTER ABOUT POTENTIAL VOTER FRAUD IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION AND HE WROTE THIS. WITH UNIVERSAL MAIL-IN VOTING, NOT ABSENTEE VOTING WHICH IS GOOD, 2020 WILL BE THE MOST ACCURATE AND FRAUDULENT ELECTION IN HISTORY, IT WILL BE A GREAT EMBARRASSMENT TO THE UNITED STATES. WE DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S TRUE, WE HOPE IT’S NOT, BUT IT COULD BE. 

THEN, HE ENDED IT THIS WAY. THE LADY ELECTION UNTIL PEOPLE CAN PROPERLY, SECURELY AND SAFELY VOTE. DELAY THE ELECTION. THAT WAS A HEADLINE ACROSS CABLE NEWS TODAY AND WE SHOULD BE CLEAR, THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN, THE ELECTION WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY TAKE PLACE IN NOVEMBER. BUT AT THIS POINT IT’S PROBABLY UNWISE TO SUGGEST CHANGING ALL THE ELECTION, VOTER FRAUD OR NOT. TOO MUCH IS IN FLUX ALREADY AND IT’S NOT ACCIDENTAL, IT’S BY DESIGN. A BEWILDERED POPULATION DEALING WITH CHANGE FROM EVERY POSSIBLE DIRECTION CANNOT FIGHT BACK, AND THAT’S WHY THEY ARE DOING IT. SO OUR JOB IS TO DEFEND WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE AS A NATION AND TO
