Jack Wylder once here again, bringing gold from the cesspits to where it belongs. This morning, Larry shared some thoughts on current events:
I truly believe we are at or nearing Peak Woke. The San Fransisco school board was just overwhelmingly voted to be recalled. Pundits are already blaming it on “secret conservatives”. In San Fransisco. The bluest big city in America. Across the nation regular normal people are done with Woke shit. They are done with Covid control freaks. They are done with incompetent petty tyranny. They are done with self proclaimed experts being constantly wrong but still handing down arbitrary commands. That combo is going to make the upcoming mid terms the biggest blood bath election of the last hundred years. Purple is gonna flip red. Blue is turning purple. 30 congressional dems have retired because they see more accurate polling than we do. Seats that are normally D+13 aren’t safe. The polls about how people identify have flipped in a manner that the establishment can’t even sorta understand yet. Some do. Those are the proverbial rats fleeing the sinking ship. Polls always oversample democrats, but even the ones that show D+7 have them being trounced. It won’t be D+7. It’s going to be R+ however many people said enough. The progressive left has driven off many of the people who they always assumed would make up their “permanent demographic majority”. Democrats have infuriated independents. Nobody expected New Jersey to be in play. Nobody expected Virginia to flip and as the polls swung the left could do nothing but panic and do dumber and dumber stunts. I expect to see lots of tiki torches and fake hate crimes in the coming months. Their figure head, Joe Biden, is despised by his enemies and pitied by his allies. He inspires no one. They have no wins. Nothing to run on. Nothing to point to. If they were smart they would do an emergency course correction and abandon the control freaks, but they can’t. The liberals abdicated. The moderates fled. The woke progs are steering the ship, and they are addicted to outrage. They only have one play in their playbook, which is scream about how everyone else is some kinda hatemonger. Regular people just want their money to be worth something and their stores to not be empty and their schools to not be indoctrination centers. While the woke running the left can only offer them increasingly batshit insane identity politics instead. A reckoning is coming. The left is about to reap the whirlwind of their hubris. Of course the GOP will flop and squish and squander this, unless these same angry voters won’t allow them to. The invertebrates like Mitt Romney will see the democrats take this generational loss and will want to “reach across the aisle” to help them back to their feet. They’ll be “bipartisan”. No. They lost because they deserved to lose because their ideas are evil and the middle has realized the left is actively destroying America. Crush them. Drive them from any position of leadership. This loss needs to hurt. It needs to be a wake up call to the democrats who aren’t insane leftists, however many of those may remain. The Woke must be cast down. Their philosophy is a cancer in the bones of our country. The monied “educated” elite of the left have loved the Woke because they have been a useful club to beat their ideological enemies with. But once the Woke become a liability, they will be dismissed and forgotten. Just like the hippies were a great big deal until suddenly, they weren’t. And they became a fringe joke. That’s a big if though, because I’m not sure how much the Venn diagrams of Woke and Elite overlap. So if democrats can’t jettison Wokeness, then regular people will make sure they lose so damned bad they don’t have a choice. That’s what’s coming. Pundits will blame it on Covid fatigue or racism or sexism or Russians or something else. But it’s not. It’s all tied together. It’s a backlash against one giant overwhelming philosophy combining the federal leviathan, woke megacorps, and a mob of useful idiots into a bizarre pseudo religion. It is completely disconnected from reality, and rules with a very stupid fist. And regular people aren’t ever allowed to question it or stand in its way. All the stuff that’s infuriating regular Americans is a result of that unholy abomination. Their jobs aren’t safe. Their kids aren’t safe. Nothing makes any sense anymore. They look around and discover they are living in clown world. When they express concern they are told to shut up, bigot, put your three masks back on and get back to serving me. How dare you question your moral and intellectual betters? The political reckoning is coming soon. The cultural reckoning will take longer, but it’s already happening. The left has owned every major cultural institution for a long time, the media, Hollywood, academia, publishing, and look how great all of those are doing. It is like minded, insufferable finger shaking scolds, all the way down. But once a preference cascade begins, it won’t stop. Voting is just the big obvious one, but as soon as enough shade holders in those various institutions decide they are tired of going broke to support a failing philosophy they’ll dump it. And if they don’t, competitors will crush them. Because people are sick of this shit. I’m actually really optimistic. I’ve been talking about this nefarious culture war for a long time, and I’m seeing an ever increasing number of regular folks catching on and realizing they’ve been getting scammed. I’m seeing more people who thought they were liberal realizing they got conned. I’m seeing more moderates realizing that moral equivalence is bullshit, because both sides suck, but at least one isn’t actively trying to destroy our civilization. On that last note, if anybody can screw this opportunity up, it’s the republicans. Many of them are corrupt, lazy, cowards. But I’m even seeing a shift there, where more of them are saying enough of this fake civility, where the left can do whatever malicious thing it wants and we have to smile and take it. About damned time. Expect the left to become increasingly desperate as their total control of every institution is threatened. Just look toward our neighbors to the north to see how petulant they can get when their power is endangered. They burn cities. Awesome. You get uppity, martial law. Sure. They’ll lie. They’ll “fact checkers”. The media companies that carry their water are getting crushed by Indy media, even with the big tech companies actively trying to silence them. CNN is getting its ass beat by Joe Rogan. Elon Musk accomplishes more with one cryptic tweet then a thousand New York Times OpEds. The strangle hold on media is over because the left shot their wad. They lied too much and now nobody believes them. Polls show more Americans trust gas station sushi than the media. They will lie, cheat, and steal. That’s just human nature. But don’t go all doomer black pill that the left will automatically win. They want you to think that’s inevitable. And if you are worried about cheating, Virginia showed us the way. Watchers everywhere and 500 lawyers waiting at a hotline perched like fucking falcons to swoop down the instant anything is weird. Get your shit together, GOP, and this won’t be an issue. In the meantime just keep talking. Keep telling the truth. Keep standing for what you believe in. And if you aren’t doing that, start. You aren’t alone. There are millions who are just as annoyed by this crap as you are.
