The Morning Report - 6/25/20

Good morning, kids. Thursday and all sorts of things are breaking, aside from glass and bones, that all coalesce around the aim of taking down President Trump. In the event, it is in fact open insurrection aimed at taking down the nation. I feel a bit like Private Joker from Full Metal Jacket with a peace sign on my helmet next to the words "Born to Kill" ("it's a Jungian thing, the duality of man."). Despite the anarchy and more frighteningly, institutions and other segments of what is supposed to be the established order cheerfully joining in and helping fuel the bonfire of the insanities, the fact that President Trump even won in 2016, then endured and even flourished up until the beginning of this year means we're still here. But the situation is still very much in doubt no matter what happens this November. And it's been brewing for at least half a century, though the roots go back at least half again as long.

...what's going on today is more dangerous [than the 60s and 70s], for the ideologies driving the disorder reflect just how successful the leftist "long march through the institutions" has been at corrupting American education and culture over the last half a century. As a result, ideas and behaviors that by consensus were out of bounds then, have now been normalized and abetted by civic leaders and politicians, as well as popular culture, schools, and even sports...

...The purpose, then, of the protests and violence has little to do with correcting a widespread abuse, or the mythic "systemic racism" responsible. It's about leveraging the rare dramatic instances of police misbehavior into political power -- not letting the crisis go to waste. Black Lives Matter, which has been at the forefront of this "crisis," has been raking in millions of dollars from corporations eager to pay the danegeld. As well as enriching the movement's leaders, this lucre will be spent on fomenting even more protests and disturbances, and on promoting an explicitly Marxist agenda that the movement cannot as of now persuade enough voters to accept at the ballot box...

... We are now entering the third generation of those who have been indoctrinated rather than educated, which means that the political ideologies of a minority in the Sixties, today are more widespread and embedded in the halls of government, as well as in popular culture and entertainment.

We sowed that wind in the Sixties, and now we are witnessing the whirlwind. The longer we appease public violence and disorder, the bolder the rioters become, and the more death and destruction will follow...

This thing is now on the verge of getting out of control. I don't mean necessarily violence; I mean, as I stated before, everything and everyone that you encounter on a daily basis and rely on for your sustenance, basic needs, commodities and services will have embraced the anti-American political movement or will go along to get along, as it were. One way or another, you will be made to care.

... It's not just the big cities. Increasingly, small towns have faced similar harassment. The woke mob has targeted local elected officials for the sin of not being sufficiently woke. Its goal appears to be to intimidate conservatives from getting involved at any level of government. It also appears that the mob efforts are expanding faster than anyone realizes...

... In Estacada, Mayor Sean Drinkwine was forced to apologize after he posted in a Facebook group, "I would not and have not condoned these BLM Vigils in our community. All city staff and I are working tirelessly to shut these Vigils down ...Our number one concern is to keep our city safe and free from conflict."

Disagreeing with the Marxist goals of BLM and opposing looting and violence will get you in trouble no matter how small your town is...

Circling back to Kubrick's penultimate outing, Private Joker could no longer be just an observer, no matter how up close and personal he was to the action. In the end, he was forced by circumstances to put down his pad and pencil and pick up the .45.

Sooner or later, we're going to have to do the same thing, figuratively or, G-d help us, literally. "Hardcore."
