There is anarchy and chaos at the border. Afghanistan—the most humiliating defeat in recent U.S. military history? A labor-starved supply network in shambles, holiday shelves emptying out? The worst inflation in 30+ year seems to be soon on par with Carter-era levels. Gas reaching $5 per gallon and winter heating fuels at an all-time high There is no consequence for looting the major cities. Joe Biden’s policies and Biden himself diving in the polls?
Never in American history have such disasters been wrought in the first nine months of an administration.
But most Americans don’t argue about the Biden administration’s sheer chaos and disasters, but rather about how such pre-civilizational calamity could occur in modern America. These disasters were caused by historical incompetence? Or mean-spirited nihilism? Or a deliberate effort in order to create the necessary turbulence for a new American revolution. Or a mixture of both?
Instead, consider the fact that what most Americans perceive as sheer ruin isn’t what the left-wing puppeteers who are pulling the strings behind the Biden marionette see. Their minor problems are their catastrophes. They see bad polling as a problem with public relations and occasionally uncooperative media. A few broken eggs are necessary to make the perfect socialist omelet.
Washington is now dominated by the Left, who believe that the U.S. Border is a mere construction. Every poor person has the right to enter America illegally. This fiscal year will see 2 million people enter the country. It is a remarkable, if sometimes sloppy, event.
Their border calamity is a celebration of humanity. It’s also a long-overdue reframing of ossified American demography. This will properly warp and rebalance the Electoral College to produce the required election result. If you believe that a culturally imperialistic America needs to be taken down a notch overseas, then the flight from Afghanistan is “impressive” and a “success”— by how quickly and efficiently we skedaddled.
Why should we be worried about a $1B embassy that was destroyed, a $300M refit of Bagram Airbase, or $80B in military hardware and training costs? Do you have empty shelves? Boohoo.
Upper-middle class consumers are furious that the working classes won’t take COVID to supply them with their holiday trinkets.
So, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg intoned that the shortages mean only that the consumer class has to wait a wee bit—until Christmas Eve—to splurge on gifts.
Is there anything to be concerned about? New monetary theory says printing dollars will bring prosperity. Or as White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain put it in a retweet, inflation is a mere “high class problem” of the Peloton elite.
Only those who have money worry about how their ill-gotten pile shrinks. But the majority without money will eventually rejoice that it is everywhere now”—finally and properly “spread,” as former president and now multimillionaire Barack Obama once promised.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez said that oil and gas would be gone in 10 year’s time. So, if Joe Biden slashes over 2 million barrels a day in U.S. oil production, what’s wrong with that?
Didn’t Steven Chu, Obama’s energy secretary, long ago brag that when we hit $8 to $10 a gallon, we’d approach European levels of proper fuel usage? Why complain about paying more than $100 to fill up when the planet is cooling faster?
Did not Americans learn “critical legal theory” and “critical race theory”? Or as the architect of the “1619 Project” reminded us, destroying or taking someone’s property is no big deal. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey shrugged off torched downtown buildings; such torched stuff, he said, is mere “bricks and mortar.”
It is only a crime to “steal” over $500 of needed merchandise from a Walgreens in San Francisco, because the rich who make such absurd laws never have to steal goods from a pharmacy shelf.
If racists want to point out the fact that African American male teenagers are disproportionately involved in the latest crime wave then perhaps America should learn not to create the conditions that make them break the law.
Summa sum, we are on a left-wing rollercoaster heading to socialist nirvana.
Most Americans believe it is instead an out-of-control “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride” nightmare with incompetents at the wheel. But the architects of such “hope and change” shrug that the occasional disturbing news that the media sometimes accidentally leaks out is merely the cost of an equitable America. One man’s anarchy is another’s road to justice.
Keep that mentality in mind and the absurdities that are mouthed by Biden, Klain, press secretary Jen Psaki, Homeland “Security” Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Pete Buttigieg, or the ravings of the Squad make perfect sense.
They are merely trying to explain to us dummies that what we think is purgatory is actually the new paradise—a promised land that, once we are properly programmed and educated, we too will welcome and thank them for our deliverance.
