Simon Webb is a British historian and author. I’ve been following his videos on YouTube for many weeks. His channel is dubbed History Debunked. I am interested in history. I have a degree in history. Most people know squat about history.
I particularly enjoyed this video because it touches on a topic that affects many aspects of our conflictive Western world these days, that we are all equal or some such silliness.
“The Western world today is in the grip of irrational thinking.”
Webb points out parallels between today’s politically correct nonsense and similar stupidities that were shoved down the gullets of citizens in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and that if you don’t toe the correct line you can find yourself in serious trouble.
In Soviet and National Socialist times, you risked your life, but these days you only risk your reputation and livelihood. You won’t be shot just yet.
A few of the more radical Democrat politicos, working under the assumption their election fraud will be successful, have already proposed a Black List of Trump Administration officials to prevent their finding employment in the future. Of course, they would love to extend that to everyone who supports Trump.
Shades of Sen. Joe McCarthy.
VERY INTERESTING video. Author and filmmaker Laurence Jarvik speaks for an hour on the Trump phenomenon. Among other themes, he points out that Trump is neither Democrat nor Republican but another thing altogether.
Trump is a deprogrammer of the American mind.
I’M ALMOST finished with H. W. Brands’ biography of Ronald Reagan. I recommend it to you.
I invariably voted Democrat during Reagan’s times, and I wasn’t a fan of his due to being duped by the left-wing news media of which I was a card-carrying member. Oh, the shame!
But the dawn of the 21st century, my move to Mexico and my higher tortilla intake caused my intelligence quotient to soar, and Reagan now makes perfect sense.
This is one of those countless things from the past that seem so relevant today. The speech was delivered during Barry Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign. Reagan was simply stumping for Goldwater, but this speech put Reagan on the path that led to his own win of the presidency in 1980.
It is a famous speech with reason.
One wonders what Reagan would make of the tragic societal disintegration occurring in the United States as a result of political correctness and the glorifying of multiculturalism and its resulting and increasing bloodshed.
The Soviet Union did not threaten the United States half as much as “Black Lives Matter,” Weepy Barry and — on the horizon but creeping closer — savage Mohammedans who are endlessly discounted by America’s ruling class.
