Now is the time to stand boldly for American justice.
American Mind ^ | 10/6/21 | Thomas D. Klingenstein

This excerpt is from Claremont board chairman Thomas D. Klingenstein’s speech, “Winning the Cold Civil War.”

In a traditional totalitarian regime, the government uses arbitrary violence to control every aspect of public and private life, all the way down to little league. In America, the government does not control everything. But today, through the power of the purse and the courts, the government influences a lot. And where the government leaves off, the cultural business complex takes over.

Education, corporate media, entertainment, big business, especially big tech, are to varying degrees aligned with the Democratic Party, which is now controlled by Woke Communists. These institutions together with the government function as a totalitarian regime, crafting narratives that advance their agenda and suppressing those that do not. Instead of violence, there is canceling. This may not look like a totalitarian regime, but it acts like one. Last summer’s riots are a case in point. Woke Comm agitators sparked the flame that lit the riots. Their intellectual leaders justified the riots; their corporate donors gave billions to the Black Lives Matter network; their media looked the other way; and their politicians, from Joe Biden on down, fanned the flames.

What is Woke Communism?

It’s called Third Worldization! It’s the utter breakdown of the law, and the ability of the rich within such a feudal society to find ways to avoid the violent chaos.

Neistat was right in identifying a pandemic of crime in Los Angeles as Third Worldization. In a recent online exchange, YouTuber, Casey Neistat vented his anger after his car was broken into and the contents stolen. Los Angeles, he railed, was turning into a “3rd world s***hole of a city.”

The predictable role of the smug, indifferent Third World rich, who master ignoring – and navigating around – the misery of others in their midst.

In a medieval-type society of two rather than three classes, the rich in walled estates rarely worry that much about thievery. Crime is written off as an intramural problem of the poor, especially when the middle class is in decline or nonexistent.

Such impoverishment pales in comparison to the encampments of present-day Fresno, Los Angeles, Sacramento, or San Francisco. Tens of thousands live on sidewalks and in open view use them to defecate, urinate, inject drugs, and dispose of refuse.

Violent crime is now soaring in America. But two things are different about America’s new criminality.

• One is the virtual impunity of it. Thieves now brazenly swarm a store, ransack, steal, and flee with the merchandise without worry of arrest.

• • Second, the Left often justifies crime as a sort of righteous payback against a supposedly exploitative system.

So, the architect of the so-called 1619 Project, Nikole Hannah-Jones, preened of the riotous destruction of property during the summer of 2020:
“Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence.”

Third Worldization reflects the asymmetry of law enforcement. Ideology and money, not the law, adjudicate who gets arrested and tried, and who does not.

The above statememnts excerpted from: Victor Davis Hanson’s: “Third-Worldizing America
Nation & State” ^ | 12-4-2021 | Victor Davis Hanson

So, Forget It, Jake! Relax! It’s Now, Not Your Town!

You voted for this B$!!! Even, If you didn’t, it doesn’t matter! Your vote has not counted nor been counted for decades, if ever.

Unless you’ve been asleep the last decade, the trend has been towards left autocracy. Happily, there is a solution: cultural separation and eventual cultural divorce.

The most important thing right now is that conservatives in deep blue areas read the writing on the wall and MOVE. Leftists never accept responsibility for their failures. Never. It’s always the “kulaks” and “counter-revolutionaries” that are to blame. Don’t stick around and be the victim. MOVE to America and thrive.
