I'm sure you've heard the story that San Francisco is moving forward with a plan to award every black resident $5 million dollars because slavery and systemic racism. Anyone who thinks that will lead to some racial harmony or reconciliation has sawdust for brains.
But let's face it, this has nothing to do with any such thing. It has nothing to do with reconciliation, harmony, justice, reparations, or anything. It's about pitting Americans against each other and, if we're lucky, getting Americans to act as they're accused of being. Royally tick off white Americans as best you can, and if any react negatively against the black community, viola! Racism proven.
The two pronged attack by our emerging top down revolution against the Christian Western Democratic tradition is 1) divide and conquer, and 2) guilt by association. Convince the world that European and American Caucasians are a malignant blight upon the world. Anything associated with their civilization is therefore open to suspicion. Ideas of liberty, democracy and equality came from that civilization, so let's reconsider. Thus religious liberty has been a tool exploited by white nationalists and white supremacists, so let's rethink this whole religious liberty thing. Same goes foe equality, presumption of innocence and free speech.
The other is endless divisions of Group A v. Group B (fill in your favorite groups accordingly). That way when they say the government needs power to punish, to oppress, to strip away rights, to ban, or enact other moves against freedoms, it can assure us it will only be used against those haters over there. Blacks might get millions while whites are marginalized, but they can trust that nothing bad will ever happen to black Americans. Or any group containing me. Just give society the power to take away their rights and reduce them to second class, and they promise it will never happen to you.
It takes a special level of stupid to fall for this, but stupid has been the goal for decades now. And it has worked. I've said before that our educational system has either failed miserably or succeeded beyond its wildest dreams. Because on the whole, we are a stupid age, with things said by our best and brightest that would have drawn scorn from your average middle schooler when I was a lad. Drugged up, sexed up narcissistic fools: the only formula needed to seize and throw down a prosperous nation built on freedom, democracy and equality. It appears to have worked like a charm.
