America vs. Anti-America
When John Edwards touted the Two Americas during his presidential campaigns before his political career ended in disgrace, it was still a metaphor. It stopped being a metaphor at the end of last year.
If you doubt that, you can watch Tom Perez, the head of the Democratic National Committee, yelling that President Trump didnt win the election. There is a huge difference between opposing the winner of an election and denying that he won it. Its the difference between opposition and rebellion.
Democrats have not recognized a single Republican presidential victory this century. There is no real reason to think that they will recognize a third one. We can safely assume that the third or fourth Republican to win the White House, no matter who he is, will face the same treatment.
A two-party system cant function if one party denies the legitimacy of elections won by the other side.
In the Edwards era, the Democrats denied that President Bush had won the election, but they still remained part of the government. Thats no longer the case. Their political mantra is resistance. Their position is that Trump and Republicans are inherently illegitimate and must not be allowed to govern. Instead the government must be defied, opposed, subverted and brought down by any means.
The Democrats have become an unelected shadow anti-government that is seeking to bring down an elected government. That is what I described in an earlier article as a civil war.
The crisis has its roots in Two Americas.
The Democrats artificially created another America. They built it in the elitist urban and suburban enclaves of the left. They drew it with urban welfare ghettoes and with mass immigration. But despite the vast financial, political and cultural power invested in this New America it did not represent the majority of the country. And democratic elections dealt repeated setbacks to this Anti-America.
Political maps show these alien concentrations of blue amid a vast national sea of red. Democrats have lost much of the country. They have been wiped out at the state level. They retain power only because they have illegally concentrated them in undemocratic political, financial and cultural centers.
Democrats responded to the latest string of defeats by denying the legitimacy of the election and calling for the elimination of the Electoral College. The original Americans hadnt died out on schedule so it was time to further dilute their electoral influence in favor of the lefts cultural and financial centers of power all the while protecting the mass immigration program that was meant to replace them.
The Two Americas are now in a state of war.
Anti-America lost an election, denied the outcome and is running a separatist shadow government of sanctuary cities and activist judges. The various attacks on the Trump administration and Congress are expressions of patriotism, not to America, but to the alternate Anti-America that they are truly loyal to.
This is not just a power struggle. Its a clash between two Americas. And only one America can survive.
The left had meant for their Anti-America to replace America. If America is to survive, Anti-America must be destroyed. Unlike America, Anti-America is an artificial entity. Its vulnerabilities are easy to spot by the policy priorities of the left. Anti-America lives by mass migration and campus brainwashing. It requires a huge infrastructure of government employees maintained by taxes and regulations. Its segregated cities depend on a complex hierarchy of political identities that provide access to everything from subsidized housing to jobs based on intersectional caste membership.
Republicans stand against everything that keeps Anti-America alive. So a conflict was always inevitable. Anti-America is far more vulnerable than America. And thats the good news.
America can win.
Anti-America is based on concentrations of power. Decentralization is its nemesis. Anti-America needs to constantly control people because it is a totalitarian system. Totalitarian systems need a lot more infrastructure and are far more vulnerable. That is why they are so intolerant of individual freedom.
Drain the swamp and you eliminate its breeding grounds. And that of the lobbyists, consultants and reporters who swarm around it like flies.
What the left does best is organize. But organizations are complex systems. And the more complex a system is, the more vulnerable it is. Fighting the left for control of the systems they created and inhabit like hives is a losing proposition. The last few months were a thorough demonstration of that. You dont fight an ant colony by going inside it. You attack it from the outside by burying it in the dirt.
The left governs by taking a public interest agenda and building an infrastructure of unions, consultants and industries around it. Thats what it did with essentials like education and medicine. Eliminate the organization and you cut expenses, improve services and wipe out the left. Thats why the left panics so badly over education reform and socialized medicine. Those are the sources of much of its money and power.
Cut immigration and the demographic replacement that the left has bet its entire right side of history on gets choked off. Thats why the left is more worked up over plans to cut migration than anything else. It doesnt actually care about Syria or El Salvador. It just knows that Anti-America depends on importing large numbers of people with high birth rates who have no allegiance to this country. Portland wont do it. Pakistan might.
Leftist beliefs defy common sense. It takes a whole lot of indoctrination to make anyone believe them. End the centralization of education, roll back the endless expansion of higher education and take a hard look at the corporate culture monopolies of the entertainment industry and the Berlin Wall will fall again. Without a fresh supply of zombies, the left goes back to being a marginal movement.
And the left knows it.
The Two Americas have come to a dangerous crossroads. The policy agenda of the Democrats would destroy America. That of the Republicans would destroy Anti-America.
American culture, economics and religion cant survive the rule of Anti-America. That is what we saw in the Obama years. But Anti-America would do even worse if Republicans got serious about a reform agenda. Thats one reason why Democrats are beginning to engage in a political secession.
Immigration enforcement, school choice and big government cuts frighten them worse than anything.
The left reshaped the culture until an ideological conflict became a culture war. The Two Americas have less in common than the North and the South did. The divisions accelerated sharply throughout the last century. In this century, the division is becoming an irresolvable political conflict. A civil war.
The Democrats are abandoning the pretense of acting as an opposition party within a unified country. If Republicans wish to preserve America, they must be prepared to use government power to destroy the infrastructure of Anti-America. A conflict is underway that will determine whether America survives.
There are Two Americas. In the end there can only be one.
“Immigration enforcement, school choice and big government cuts frighten them worse than anything.” True.
This ‘divide’ was consciously and purposely created. The creation of this destructionism is nearly a full century in the making.
There is no way in hell it can be peacefully solved. The domestic enemy will not allow that to happen.
Only the willfully blind are unwilling to see the situation as an us or them binary solution set.
This is one of the best op-ed’s I’ve read in a long time. Very true and very insightful.
Really nailed and described the leftist mentality in a way we can understand since much of how the left thinks is still a mystery we simply describe as a mental illness.
Well done and thanks for posting it. I’m going to share it with my political junkies like myself. ;)
Almost every communist screed or history I've ever read spends the first half denouncing capitalism, the rich, privileged, or whatever they call it. It's always about the revolution. They never seem to get around to fulfilling their utopian promises, except to enrich themselves.
Between the corruption, the third-worlders and the rock-solid stupidity of the American people; this country will not survive. I am spending less time at FR because I am sick of reading about those three topics.
Amen. Roughly once a year, an op-ed so absolutely epic comes along that I have to physically print it off and carry it with me so I can share it with three or four people I encounter capable of comprehending the scope of what is being said.
Looks like a candidate for a CW2 ping.
Another excellent article from Greenfield. He’s got the Dems completely nailed.
The Matrix has been revealed for everyone to see. Paranoia is now truth!
Law enforcement cannot always be peaceful, but that's step one -- enforcing the laws against illegal immigration, rioting, illegal political funding, illegal voting, etc.
The second step is change laws which "dam-up the swamp" to let it drain naturally.
So the "swamp" and its critters can be defeated, but not without effort or political cost.
And the domestic enemy will just sit quietly on its hands and do nothing? And the constant stream of fully indoctrinated people they’re pumping out of our institutions of “education” will, what?
The leftists and their media outlets excreted pious baloney every day in the last weeks leading up to the election, reminding us that the losing side must gracefully accept the results of an election, or else democracy as we know it will end.
Why are Democrats completely immune to irony, and to their own hypocrisy? They are doing in spades what they so piously lectured the world against. Have they no shame?
Ping list ping.
Well said, thank you.
Remember, they are Leftists and as such, by definition, totally incompetent.
They only ever win because most conservatives have much better things to do with our lives than chase political careers.
We'd rather do most anything but politics and so by default we turn the political battlefield over to Leftists.
That's why they win.
But if we stand up & oppose them -- lawfully, peacefully, but forcefully -- we can beat them more often than not.
Because they're Leftists and thus totally incompetent.
I recommend you two get on Jack Black’s Civil War 2 ping list, as well as Louis Foxwell’s Daniel Greenfield ping list.
Greenfield is one of my top 5 columnists, he’s always a must read.
Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.
To get on or off the Greenfield ping list please reply to this post.
I do seriously wish it was going to be that easy.
What folks either don’t know yet because they haven’t had reason to dig for it, or choose to ignore when they see/read/hear hints and indicators of it is...
The left is aligned with some serious organized criminal firepower.
The black left has the Black Guerilla Family lined up for when the shooting starts.
On the latino side La Raza has official and known alliances with both La eMe (Mexican Mafia) and 18th Street gang (together about 10k shooters) and a loose alliance with MS-13. These gangs also run the coyote business and are tied in with the cartels across the Mexican border and can bring large numbers of professional hitters across at will, at least until the wall is completed. And even then there’s the coastal routs.
Also, the left can count on support from resident jihadiscum for at least the short term.
I’m not saying there’s a hope in hell for them to win. I am saying it will be bloody though.
