What We Believe, Part 2: The Problem with Elitism
** This is what it looks like when a country puts its own citizens and national interests first. Related to immigration:

** Don’t forget what the Left’s illegal-philia is really about (shameless capitalism – picture is from a mug with this design):
Jerusalem Post - Living with History
** Quote: “Children tear down the things they disagree with, but as grownups, that is a luxury we just cannot afford. Learning to live with history is a basic part of the human experience, and if we are becoming unable to do that, our society has much bigger problems than a few confederate statues or an upsetting flag. Our collective history is told through pain and joy, through victories and heartbreaking loss, and if we cannot keep all of it, we will end up with something much worse than nothing at all.”
>> Observant. The Leftists are children, having a tantrum that others – i.e., those to the right of Stalin – aren’t acceding to their every whim. It’s I want, I want, I want. Related:
American Thinker - Christopher Columbus Gets the Sledgehammer** The Confederacy issue is just an excuse; the real target is all of Western Civilization. Because if that can be torn down, the Marxist Dialectic says – with “scientific confidence” – that a resulting Socialist Utopia will then arise. These people are missionaries, with the same zeal and confidence in their beliefs as Islamic Jihadists. More:
“As I said, a nasty piece of business. But after all this time, do you dig up his bones and ship him out? We’ve lived to see interesting times indeed.”
>> What Grant did to Jews was a nasty piece of work. But these people are as fanatical as the students in Mao’s Cultural Revolution, determined to scour their society (and change human nature) and expunge anything considered “impure”. Millions died.
Truth Revolt - Minority Students Claim Thomas Jefferson’s Statue is ‘Emblem of White Supremacy’
** Like I keep saying, this is nothing to do with the Confederacy, and everything to do with an Orwellian purge of history.

“All trump supporters, nay, all Republicans, are racist scum,” Assistant Professor of Human-Centered Computing Bart Knijnenburg wrote in a recent Facebook post.
“All republicans? Yes,” he confirmed in the comments section. “Your complacency made this happen. Pick a side: denounce your affiliation, or admit you're a racist.”and

** They have an agenda; distortion, even outright lying, are permitted. For example, Windows rotates my power-saver screen. The latest one had something like “Only 6%-or-so of women study STEM subjects…” OK, interesting, but what’s missing? What’s the male percentage? And it would also be informative to know what percentage of those starting in STEM made it through for both sexes. But informing is not the agenda – propagandizing is. Alarming people is. (When confronted with virtually any statistic, from anyone, my first inclination is to ask “So, what are they not telling me?”)

** You will think correct thoughts or else. But there’s a secondary consequence: if Right-leaning people start to understand the police will not protect them, they will start coming armed. And perhaps that’s the wheels-within-wheels plan. If Right-leaning people come armed, and are attacked, and defend themselves, that will become the 24/7 screamfest about how Conservatives are dangerous. Remember, the Left has had decades to plan this. Exactly related:

American Thinker - Does the Left Know Something's Coming Involving Guns?
“The obvious next step in the string of events being put into effect by the left is a confrontation involving guns. They seem to want, indeed, to have foreknowledge, that someone at one of these events will use a gun, perhaps one of their own pretending to be an opponent, or maybe a bystander will be threatened and will protect himself and those with him. Regardless, the purge of the Second Amendment will take off as never before. Imagine the hysterical, unhinged screaming that an Alt-Right lunatic finally proved all the leftists right and took a shot. What happened won't matter. Truth will be rejected. The narrative will be everything.”
