National suicides

This is one of my favorite YouTube channels. It’s called History Debunked, and it’s run by a British author named Simon Webb. His videos usually run about five minutes. I believe this is just the second time I have posted one of his talks.

Go and subscribe. He is always entertaining and informative.

This one deals with the effects that “embracing diversity” has had on Scandinavian nations. It hasn’t been pretty. I am a staunch foe of encouraging multiculturalism because it usually leads to nasty things. It is a horrible fad embraced only by historically Caucasian cultures, specifically the clueless, violent, leftist element in those cultures.

Tragically, this element recently seized the White House.

You won’t find the fad in Ecuador, Vietnam, China, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, Japan, etc., because political correctness has no foothold in those places. These sorts of nations have a strong sense of themselves, which is what keeps a nation intact.

Diversity is our strength?

You’d be hard-pressed to find a dumber and more inaccurate, stylish phrase than the above. Not only is diversity not our strength. It is the cause of uproar and divisiveness.

Anyone with a moderate grasp of history knows this. Of course, few people possess even a middling grasp of history. They are ignoramuses.

And yet almost everyone spouts the phrase, not just individuals but corporations which, almost without exception, now include the pursuit of diversity in their list of principles. This means they mainly choose their employees not by skills but skin color and gender. This is really dumb.

That embracing diversity causes problems is obvious. Just look at the United States now. That not embracing it avoids problems of a similar nature is demonstrated by unicultural nations such as Mexico, Japan, Russia, China and so on. These sorts of nations do not crow that diversity is their strength. They know better.

This diversity-embracing nonsense is not pushed by conservatives. It is pushed by leftists. In the United States that means the Democrat Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party. Diversity is not the sole bad idea of these people, though it is a primary one that drives other ill-conceived initiatives.

Deep down, the Democrat Socialists know that diversity is not our strength at all, which is why they are so intent on muzzling anyone who disagrees. Truth speaks for itself. Lies must be forced upon us. Diversity is a road to destruction, a Highway to Hell.

The cancel-debt nincompoopery

“Cancel police! Cancel student loans! Cancel all bills! Cancel work! Free houses for all! Playtime for all!” These are not words overheard near a group of obnoxious high schoolers, these are the political calls of the modern left. “FREE! FREE! FREE! Everything should be FREE!” These are your elected officials.

“Money doesn’t grow on trees, naive one,” you might say to an immature teenager who asks for free stuff. But what do you say to a fuzzy-brained adult making the same demands, who also happens to have power over your wallet?

An unthinkable conundrum is our reality: the dumbest people in your high school class are now in political power, making the same thoughtless demands they made back when you thought it was just their hormones. 

“I don’t feel like paying my debts because it’s too hard,” is the summary of their I WANT FREE STUFF demand du jour. 

“OK, so who should pay your debts?” you ask. “That’s selfish and racist,” is the response. Seriously.

 The dumbest people in your high school class are now in political power.

This would all be a fantastical, hysterical story, if it were not real.

In anticipation of Biden’s looming presidency, leftists began organizing their FREE STUFF priority lists. On the top of many lists you will find cancellation of student loan debt and free healthcare. Where do they think the money will come from? Why, your wallet, of course! Biden is expected to raise taxes to pay for that “free” stuff. 

Never forget this: the understanding that they must take money from the working to pay for the debts of those not working (or not earning as much) — is in itself proof that they know “free” or “cancel” is a lie. There is no such thing as free because someone always pays for it, and leftists know this. That’s why they call to raise taxes “on the rich” — a puffed lie because it is not wealth that is taxed yearly, but earnings, income, work product. It is work that is taxed, not “wealth.” 

The cunning leftist thieves in charge know what they are doing — committing theft. And like all good thieves, they lie to cover it up. Their constituency, mentally debilitated after years of brainwashing and indoctrination in leftist-run schools, doesn’t ask questions; the lemmings trust and follow and echo.

So what can you do? How can you reason with leftists? Short answer — you can’t. How can you make overgrown children see the flaws of their reasoning? Same answer — you can’t. 

Intellectual conservatives have spent a great deal of time trying to figure out how to reason with socialist lemmings. There is a narcissistic aspect to the idea that you can figure out a way to change leftist minds. They wasted precious time. Socialist ideology grew like a weed while they were busy using a thesaurus to more authoritatively instruct us on how to argue with the left.

Yes, there were some leftists and Democrats who changed their views. But it wasn’t intellectual conservatives who made that happen, it was the individuals themselves. Those individuals experienced rationality competing with their leftist politics and rationality simply won the internal tug-of-war. 

Past efforts to convince the left of their irrationality are a sunk cost. What’s lost is done. We need to move on.

But I digress. Back to thieves and lemmings. 

If we can’t reason with them, what can we do? We must stop them. There is no middle-ground position on this. A middle ground position with the neoleft means we must take a bunch of steps to the left to meet them half-way on an outlandish demand. Why would we do that? What has middle-ground politics brought us? It’s brought us closer and closer to socialism, which is now threatening us literally at our front door. We can’t afford to let it get any closer. There is no room for negotiation. There is only room for a solid NO.

To “cancel student loan debt” — just say no.

To “free healthcare for all” — just say no.

And so on and so forth.

Don’t negotiate. Just say no. Protect America.

Sign of our times

Public servant, Portland-style!

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I thought of that immediately on seeing this photo. By the way, that’s a woman, not a man. She is a city commissioner in the socialist outpost known as Portland, Oregon, and as such she’s no fan of the police and has voted to reduce police funding.

But in spite of her voting and rhetoric, what is the first thing she did on November 1 when she had a dispute with a Lyft driver?

That is correct. She called the cops.

Just gazing upon the visage of this gal whose name is Jo Ann Hardesty, by the way, tells you immediately that she voted against President Trump. Yes, you can make accurate judgments based on appearances, and this is where the adoration of victimhood and multiculturalism has brought us. Well, you, not me because I do not live in the United States.

You likely do, poor thing. My heart goes out to you.
