Quote of the day—Victor Davis Hanson

Our 21st century revolutionaries are multibillionaires with flip-flops, tie-dye T-shirts and nose rings, but with the absolute power and desire to censor how half the country communicates — or cancel them entirely.

They don’t flock to campus free-speech areas; they are the campus administrators who ban free speech.

They don’t picket outside the Pentagon; they are inside the Pentagon.

They don’t chant “eat the rich”; they are the rich who eat at Napa Valley’s French Laundry.

They don’t protest “uptight” values, because they are more intolerant and puritanical than any Victorian.

They don’t believe in racial quotas based on “proportional representation,” because they are racists who demand underrepresentation of “bad” racial groups and overrepresentation of “good” groups. The color of our skin is their gospel, not the content of our character.

Our revolutionaries hate dissent. They destroy any who question their media-spun hoaxes.

Truth is their enemy, and fear is their weapon. Sixties paranoid revolutionaries warned about George Orwell’s “1984,” but our revolutionaries are “1984.”

This Isn’t Your Father’s Left-Wing Revolution
[There are some astute observations here.—Joe]

  1. He’s right. It isn’t your fathers left wing revolution. But the riffs and rhymes to one are unmistakable.
    The only thing truly astonishing about it is that anyone wanting to know has the worlds history right at their finger tips.
    Like Jesus said. When you see the sky is red and lowering, you say, there cometh a storm. And so it is. Or when the wind comes from the south, you say, there will be heat. And it cometh to pass. You can read the face of the sky, how is it then you cannot discern these times?
    It would appear technology has availed man little. And even though it’s not my father’s left wing revolution. The smug look on Obama’s face during that last interview? Tells you everything.
    It’s not. It’s just a real ignorant version of it.
    Next time you ask yourself. That can’t be right, nobody is that stupid?
    You have an answer. Ya, they really are.

  2. Not only is it not your fathers left wing revolution, it is faceless, leaderless, and global. It is rare that even on this blog anyone names any individual. We use words like they, them, leftist, communist, but do not name individuals. So who, by name, is really our enemy? Is it your neighbor, relative, boss, company, deep state, Biden, Harris, Obama, the administration, ANTIFA (an organization without a roster), BLM (another organization without a roster), or the CIA and other unnamed organizations? Or all of the above?

    • Yup. B) All of the above. I remember hearing over forty years ago about how no main plan, or planner was to be named.
      We would be kept off balance through not being able to point at anyone organization. It’s the bilderbergs! No, the gang of Rome! The CFR. The Rothchilds. The Knights Temlar!
      The list goes on and on.
      Momma Gump said it best. Stupid is as stupid does. Criminal intent and criminal negligence have the same penalty. Or should have.
