The Morning Report — 12/1/22

boerswarmusk.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and I give you the bitter irony of oppressed citizens of China and Iran in a life and death struggle for actual liberation while America, the erstwhile beacon of freedom, is moving in the exact opposite direction with nary a peep. That's mostly because the media Mandarins – pun absolutely intended – have done all in their power to silence all protest to the overthrow of our nation and society and culture by the heirs apparent of Mao's Cultural Revolution.

Love him, hate him, indifferent to him, wary of him, or some mix of all of it, Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter hasn't caused this powerful a reaction by the anti-Americans since the near-parallel ascendancy of talk radio and the internet. For good reason; to control the narrative is to control the direction of the nation. In the past 30 years, so many myths about our government and heretofore sacrosanct institutions have been exploded because of new media. That was perhaps the first direct threat to the goal of the post-war "new world order" and the power of those who put us on that path. The election of Donald Trump and then his overthrow four years later was the capstone. And his overthrowing was our overthrowing.

In any case, the genie is out of the bottle and there can be no going back to the way things were. So the gloves are off.

The [so-called quote-unquote "president"] launched into Musk the day after the midterms with a mafioso-style warning that his administration would be investigating whether the 51-year-old billionaire is a “national-security threat” over his purchase of the social-media behemoth. The White House keeps saying ominously that it is “keeping a close eye” on Twitter.

Yet Musk remains intransigent, suggesting at one point this week that he was “going to war . . . This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.”

In a poll of his 120 million Twitter followers, Musk asked whether he “should publish all censorship actions [Twitter] has taken that affect its customers.” The answer was a resounding “yes,” and so he tweeted tantalizingly: “The people have spoken.”

This is an existential blow to the left’s ability to control the narrative. A lot of secrets are set to be revealed that a lot of powerful people want to remain hidden.

Most important is to reveal details of collusion among the FBI, Big Tech and the government.

This collusion has been the focus of Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s numerous lawsuits against the Biden [junta], alleging that White House officials and federal agencies acted with Big Tech to censor “disfavored speakers, viewpoints and content on social-media platforms.”

Emphasis mine, and absolutely 100% correct. It's funny; the first thing out of an anti-American's pie-hole when an innocent person is arrested is "if they're innocent, they have nothing to worry about." Well, the shoe is now on the other foot, in a way. And that is the essence of the First Amendment vis a vis real dictionary-definition journalism. If every criminal in this criminal junta, from the Bidens to Fauci to Pelosi on down are truly innocent as they claim to be, then why are they sweating bullets and screaming at the top of their lungs?

This in a very real way is a microcosm of the anti-Americans across the board. As Rush Limbaugh of blessed memory would always say, "The Left doesn't want to level the playing field. They want to clear it." That's because in an honest, open, fair debate about who and what they are and what they want, they'd lose the argument every time.

Seriously, if you are so strident in your beliefs, then what do you really have to fear if someone who merely disagrees with you is prevented from even stating his case, nearly to the point of being physically assaulted?

Far-left activists reportedly swarmed an event Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk held at the University of New Mexico on Wednesday evening, with protesters calling to “shut down white supremacy.”

“My welcoming committee at University of New Mexico for tonight’s event,” Kirk tweeted along with a video that showed tens of protesters dressed in black, wearing masks, shouting and holding slogans protesting Kirk’s appearance on their campus. . .

. . . Campus police appeared to form a border between the protesters and the event venue, but that did not prevent the activists from continuing to protest.

The activists shouted through megaphones, banged on items, and marched from behind the barrier. Some protesters could be seen waving signs that read “SHUT DOWN WHITE SUPREMACY.”

The list goes into the scores if not hundreds of intellectuals, politicians, artists and thinkers who are even a millimeter to the right of Leon Trotsky who have been hounded, attacked and suffered actual violence up to the point of lethality from speaking on campuses and in public generally. More frightening perhaps than what Charlie Kirk went through is this madness:

The global law firm Hogan Lovells fired a retired equity partner after she spoke positively about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in a conference call with other female employees, some of whom expressed anger at her, she wrote in a Tuesday Wall Street Journal opinion piece.

Every other speaker on the company call in June, which had been dubbed a “safe space” for women to talk about the decision, decried the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson ruling that month, attorney Robin Keller alleged. Keller said she received “immediate” outrage after she pointed out that many jurists and commentators argued Roe v. Wade had been incorrectly decided, opined that sending the abortion issue to states was right and “referred to numerous reports of disproportionately high rates of abortion in the black community, which some have called a form of genocide,” calling this “tragic.”

“The next speaker called me a racist and demanded that I leave the meeting,” Keller wrote. “Other participants said they “lost their ability to breathe” on hearing my comments.”

This person is not an infant, nor an adolescent, nor even a teenager. This is a college and law school graduate, and an adult. Beyond merely having a strong opinion about something, even a strident opinion, to claim that you can't breathe because someone voiced an opinion opposite yours indicates that not merely has their been brainwashing in our schools but in point of fact what can only be described as some sort of sustained, multi-generational mass psychosis.

As I stated above, in an honest, open, fair debate about who and what the anti-American Left are and what they want, they'd lose the argument every time. So, what's the answer? Take over the schools, teach lies as truth from pre-school through post-grad, ???, Profit!

Cutting through the madness of this individual's case of the vapors, if I have to tell a grown adult to "use your words" as to WHY you think Roe v. Wade or any other issue under the sun you believe in is right and someone else's is wrong, then we are well and truly fucked.

This is evil. And it starts at the top. That Nuremberg Rally at Independence Hall last Labor Day wherein half the nation was blood libeled as a cancer to be eradicated is all you need to know. This is why I think that even if this nation were to physically split into two halves, there would still never be peace. If we were to live on a planet at the furthest reaches of the galaxy, they'd build a starship to come and get us. To do so, and to thrive while they devolve into squalor, violence and despair as everything they believe in is instituted turns into hell on earth instead of the worker's paradise, would be intolerable.

In the immortal words of Gracie Slick, "When the truth is found to be lies. And all the joy within you dies." That sure describes my political consciousness-raising the past 10-20 years. What of your average leftist and "their truth?"

Gotterdammerung America.

    ABOVE THE FOLD, BREAKING, NOTEWORTHY

  • "Diversity is not always a strength. In this context, diversity means fewer white people, fewer Englishmen, and fewer Christians. There are the who would celebrate that. I would call them racists."

    Why Enoch Was Right

  • "America’s most daring and insightful playwright tried to warn us that we were going haywire. By making him a hate object, American theater has made us all poorer."
    Fuck David Mamet
  • "The pressing question is not whether the border crisis meets the constitutional definition of 'invasion' but whether the Constitution will survive widespread anarchy."
