If anyone needed to know how educated
people can be just as deluded as the so-called “unwashed masses,” attending the
poetry reading I went to this week where a poet and a professor would have
provided them with a doctoral thesis on self-delusion.
We have all had our share of radical
profession in college, people we ached to please in order to be accepted in
their extremely popular classes, little realizing how such exposure would taint
our world view later.For poets like this one who took her
classes then, she had a profound affect on their lives, since she managed to
get into their heads at a time when they were still vulnerable to persuasion,
steering them up path – not just least taken, but from which it is nearly
impossible to return.This may explain the political
dribble the poet spouted, demonstrating how well he could ape his professor and
how little he understood American history – and worse, how little he wanted to.For the most part, the poet issued
watered-down platitudes gleaned from biased media such as NPR, The New York
Times or still worse, the Washington Post, reinforcing the party line, grossly
inaccurate, and grossly glossing over historical fact – something typical of
political poetry in general, more propaganda than verse.The professor, of course, was batter
at it, a real crafts person from decades of practice in the classroom, molding
students minds on what to think, rather than teaching them how to think for
themselves.This is no unique to poetry or
colleges or even to left-leaning social groups from meetups to coffee clutches.
From warehouses to Wall Street, from the NRA to MeToo, groups are groomed to
specific beliefs or exiled.
Blaming the professor is somewhat
unfair. Education is supposed to expose young minds to alternative views, even
radical ones, only what transpires in academia hardly resembles what actually
happens in the real world, and so explains in part the anti-Trump rhetoric the
poet spouted, demonstrating more about how well indoctrinated he’s become than
any real knowledge of political reality.This poet’s purpose, however, was to
paint the president as unstable and to decry the political system that
allegedly cheated Democrats of their own choice, the first self-serving drivel,
then second factually incorrect.The poet doesn’t even know real
politicians. His social set is a group of radicals who think and talk the way
he does, and rarely disagree fundamentally with his views.He clearly did not study American
history well enough to understand the terror the Founding Fathers felt, caught
between mob rule and a fascist king, or how they set up the government in order
avoid either extreme.The poet largely repeated the silly
rhetoric the left has been spewing ever since Trump beat Clinton in 2016, that
there is something wrong with an electoral college that gives the same voice to
smaller conservative societies as it does to those mass city liberal cities.So naturally, when the cities poured
out votes for Clinton, liberals like this poet and the professor expected to
win and were frustrated by a system that helps protect minority communities –
in this case, white conservative minorities who live far from the city and who
would not have a voice in elected a president without electoral college to
protect their interests. How different would the poet and professor sound if
the cities were conservative and imposing their political views on small towns
filled with people of color?America has been caught in the middle
of two strains of political thought since its foundation. Small communities
give more voice to individuals and so better reflect participatory democracy.
But like all small social groups, liberal or conservative, they also tend to
exclude people who do not agree with their point of view.Large government has a broader
umbrella, so it can provide for a wider range of diversity, but individuals
then to get lost in the crowd. Special interests groups from the NRA to Planned
Parenthood have more influence, than individuals do, and we are often forced to
accept a representational form of government that may not reflect or will often
ignore individuals, especially small population centers which may have other
issues that politically powerful cities might not or will not address.The forefathers set up a system that
would allow senators to serve the needs of a national agenda, while having
members of the House of Representatives serve more local needs.The electoral college also reflects
this need to protect minorities whose geographic location make it more
difficult to organize than in the cities, and whose interest are different than
the mass population centers. The electoral college regionalized the selection
process so that it doesn’t become skewed by a singular political agenda often
generated in the city centers, protecting the right of a minority to have equal
voice as the majority.But since the majority in this case
is a liberal majority and have come to reflect a mob mentality not much
different from that which the forefathers feared, the electoral college becomes
the last refuge against political tyranny imposed by large liberal groups on
smaller and scattered conservative ones.The poet and the professor, of
course, being part of this new moral majority, clearly do not want small
communities to stand in the way of their new Liberal agenda, and so promote the
idea of abolishing the electoral college so they can push their views down the
throats of people with opposing views.Poems by the poet and the professor
were all about discrimination, and how unfair the system is, while their little
poet society fully reflects the small community flavor they often call “red
neck.” While this little reading on this particular day promoted diversity,
they limited their diversity to what they agree with, and would exile anybody
who decided maybe to read a poem that might sing the praises of Trump or raise
questions about the morality of abortion.But the poet and the professor twist
complicated issues into easily digested talking points, and their purpose in
the world is to spread a particular gospel and to make certain that those who
belong to that particular religious understand the scripture we are expected to
follow – proving that propaganda is still propaganda regardless of how pretty
the package it comes in.

A number of conservatives believe that there is a new genocide being
conducted by a liberal elite, an effort to do away with white straight men or
at best emasculate them, creating a new breed of eunuchs that will allow women,
gays and sexually undermined intellectual males rule the world.As farfetched as this sounds, conservatives may have found an issue
around which they can rally, and as the left abandons working class whites and
has become a party dedicated to the interests of gays, women, immigrants and
people of color.
The fact is, conservatives appear to understand liberals far better
than liberals do conservatives.
Much of what liberals believe comes out of their own prejudices and
distorted myths about conservative culture in particular while straight men.Most liberals aren’t stupid, but often come off sounding that way when
they rant about how so called racism of the conservatives.Liberal arrogance has the potential to derail the causes they most
espouse and threatened to unravel their plans to retake control of government,
not just this year, but in 2020 as well.Well educated, many normally non-political liberals are extremely
ignorant when it comes to the dynamics of race in the United States, believing
short-sighted lectures on American history that allows them to over react when
it comes to dealing with conservatives – using racially charged terms to
describe whites as “Crackers” or “hillbillies” in a disparaging and often
mistaken notion of their own moral and intellectual superiority.The masses of liberals we hear ranting on the streets are largely being
manipulated by a much savvier Democratic political machine, which fully
understands its conservative enemies but needs to make use of the nativity of
easily led liberal masses.Even those few movements that haven’t been orchestrated by a Democratic
think tank risk increasing the power of conservatives, while under the illusion
that are somehow righting some historic wrong.In many cases, liberals do not even know why they believe what they
believe, and have created a world based on the myth of good and evil, mimicking
what they hear rather than what they think for themselves, exposing themselves
only to information to which they already agree.Politics, however, has very little to do with individual belief.
Instead, it strongly resembles high school or college, where people’s
membership in social cliques determine what they believe. The group you belong
to determines not only what you believe, but who you are or even who you wish
to be.God help the black or gay who admits to his social group that Donald
Trump might have a good idea about anything. Your friends won’t be your friends
long because blacks and gays and women are supposed to hate Trump, and so they
do. A black who questions the ideology of black culture will quickly get the
label “uncle tom.” Blacks are expected to support Democrats, just as women are,
and gays.A gay who speaks out against gay marriage faces a similar fate. Just as
a woman who opposes abortion does.People do not think for themselves, and their values are determined by
the company they keep.This is as true for conservatives who are members of the NRA, certain
churches, and anti-abortion group, family groups and such.But the two issues that most divide Americans are race and sexuality.And the left has clearly declared war on conservatives in both of these
areas, determined to force conservatives to adopt a liberal agenda as far as
race, gay marriage and access to abortion. But the campaign appears to go far
beyond forcing conservatives to believe what liberals want them to believe, but
to punish them when they fail to comply.For instance, many liberals come to believe that all southern white men
are racists as is the case for anyone who is a registered republican.Oddly enough research shows that up until the 1980s, most southern
whites were Democrat – although there has been a slow migration of whites from
Democrats to Republicans starting in the 1950s, and some of these whites
actually supported issues like integration and civil rights.But the perception that a southern white must be racist has become such
a fixture in the liberal mythology that it has become accepted by media and
others as fact.This is also true when it comes to feminism, and immigration, and the
perception that if you are a working class straight white man, you sexually
abuse women, want to beat up gays and hate immigrants when this may or may not
be true.These myths have infected almost all of our mainstream society and so
we get a media that assumes these assumptions as fact, and professors – such as
one who I heard speak recently as a poetry reading – teaching young people this
as if gospel. This myth making has scared corporate America into refusing to
sell guns or to implement social policies that are in line with these
questionable beliefs.Race, of course, continues to divide America like no other issue. It is
the ultimate social club, whether you are white, black or in-between.Liberal males – especially those who wish to seem sophisticated or are
ashamed of their blue-collar upbringing – adopt this unnatural orthodoxy even
when they are straight and white to fit in with a social crowd they aspire to
belong to, saying all the right things, even if they – despite their education
– haven’t a clue as to what they are actually talking about.Studies done in the 1940s and 1950s show that people often claimed
membership in a party even when they do not completely understand the reason behind
the party’s beliefs. In some cases, they take the word of better politically
educated people such as professors or media, and accept a short-hand version of
truth that amounts to stereotyping.This need for liberals to belong so blinds them that they accept
whatever media or the party tells them as truth, and become arrogant because
they believe their education has provided them with a monopoly on truth or
morality. For all their claims of diversity, their views are extremely
simiplistic, a black and white, good and evil vision of the world, causing a
knee jerk reaction when it comes to judging conservatives.These liberals assume that anyone who opposes their views are evil or
bigots, and claim that anyone who voted for Trump is either stupid or corrupt.
Anyone who opposed gay marriage, abortion or open borders for immigration is
evil.This is part of a moral crusade that practically justifies any
behavior.The election of Trump as president was a shock because it undermined
the liberal belief that the country was inevitably becoming more liberal – and
that the righteousness of their crusade would become self-evident at the polls
when Clinton beat Trump.As a result of this intense disappointment, we saw what amounted to a
temper tantrum by packs of spoiled brats taking to the street because someone
denied them something they thought they were entitled to have.This fed into their delusion that Trump must have cheated – much in the
way Clinton cheated to steal the nomination and later tried to do in her
attempt to become the first woman president.But the tantrum was also flavored with Democratic think tank
manipulation that allowed for the funding of the woman’s march and radical
actions by groups such as Black Lives Matter.Selfish and self-righteous lunatics – believing their had moral high
ground – started to tear down Confederate statues and burn Confederal flags to
punish conservatives they believe stole the election from them.These deluded do-gooders claimed they were offended by icons that
honored people such as Robert E. Lee and flags that celebrated the Confederacy,
determined to destroy a culture they considered racist. This is a massive
misconception of not only what those Icons stood for in the white culture, but
the history behind them.In fact, such abuse of history didn’t stop with racism. These reverse
bigots decided to remove all icons to all historic men they found disagreeable
starting with Lee and Christopher Columbus, and most recently Winston Churchill
– largely because these men are white and male at a time when it appears to be
a politically correct crime to be either.One local professor even required his white students to write essays
about why they should be ashamed to be white. Arts projects funded by federal
grants such as The West by one of the Burns brothers flatly called white people
evil.This attack on white culture and its icons is a complete but apparently
deliberate misreading of history and the meaning of these icons.Liberals in waging these attacks clearly do not understand their enemy,
and so do things that provide conservatives with more power, not less.Trump’s election – although tinged with extremist elements at times –
was less about race, misogyny and hatred of immigrants that it was about
resisting a wave of political correctness orchestrated partly by a desperate
Democratic Party and partly by a skewed educational system that itself ignores
facts to create myth.Many in the south see this new politically correct social order as akin
to the carpetbaggers that preyed on the south in the aftermath of the Civil
War, both seeking to punish white men for being white.While there is no denying racism exists in America, north, south, east
or west, liberals mistake why many white people cling to flags and other
symbols of a fallen confederacy, or why they need to have access to guns.This is not about being anti-black, it is about being pro-white, and
there is a huge distinction.As the women’s movement, black moment and other liberal agendas appear
to want to strip white men of their historic culture – regardless of how
terrible it might be – the more white will seek to preserve them, elevating
people like Lee to the position of hero (which he actually deserves) and waving
a flag that is largely one big “fuck you” to the liberals who want to tear them
down and tear down things conservatives believe.Many see the new liberal as a remade carpetbagger, and the more such
radicals tear down, the stronger these icons become, because they become
symbols of resistance to an oppression that has never ceased, a kind of social
order being imposed from liberals far away living in an illusion.These attacks on Trump by a liberal media, these foolish acts by
deluded radicals come off as a repeat of mistakes made by radicals in the past
– such as the 1968 convention protest in Chicago that some historians believe
helped get Richard Nixon elected.With each new attack by media or the liberal establishment on Trump and
conservatives, the more a silent rage builds. But unlike liberal spoiled brats
who rant and rave and take their rage out in the streets, conservatives will
take it out in the voting booth – white people power striking back, not just
for the midterm elections this year, but also in 2020.

When I woke up this morning, I remembered a dream I had:That the Washington Post had stopped printing anonymous sources all of
which turned out to be Steven Bannon;That CNN – like a puppet – stopped repeating everything the Washington
Post prints;That every story in The Hill was not bashing Donald Trump;That The New York Daily News had not turned into an east coast version
of the snow flake LA Times;That Mother Jones had stopped ranting and raving and realized this isn’t
1935 anymore and there no longer is a Soviet Union to endorse;That the Nation no longer pretended to be an intellectual version of The
That The New York Times ran out of purple ink for its purple prose to debase Trump with;
That Politico was anything more than a political joke;
That Steven Colbert started acting like an adult;That Jimmy Kimmel had learned to tell the truth;That Alec Baldwin and the crew from Saturday Night Live actually
watched their own show and realized they are not, never have been, and never
will be funny;That CBS, NBC, and ABC had reverted back to real news stations;That Fox and Briebart News went back to seeming extreme;That MeToo stopped being a campaign against men;That Black Lives Matter really meant promoting blacks rather than
tearing down statues and burning flags;That right wing and left wing realized they are all part of the same
country;That the Washington Examiner was a real news organization;That MSNBC understood it really is only a mirror image of Fox News;That Kathy Griffin went on national TV holding up her own bloody head;That Hillary Clinton would learn to shut up;That Bernie Sanders would realize Democrats hate him;That Barack Obama admitted just how horrible a president he had been;But then, I woke up, had my coffee and put on AC/DC on the radio.

Mueller is about as trustworthy as a foaming at the mouth mad dog.
Democrats might use him to bite Trump, but don’t expect him to deliver justice.
Prosecutors for the most part are political appointees and their total function is to prosecute. It is not in their nature to consider the idea that some people might actually be innocent.
People like Mueller might lie, cheat, steal, to get someone charged with a crime – since their only purpose is to build a case they can prosecute.
Grand juries are a joke because they are most often simply puppets for a prosecutor, a group of people who generally are sympathetic to the prosecutor in the first place, and always only hear one side of a case. There are no defense attorneys, no alternative sets of facts. Grand jurors hear only what the prosecutor wants them to hear.
Having a prosecutor like Mueller is like letting your daughter date a serial rapist. You don’t have to wait until she comes home in tears to know what will happen.
For the Democrats, Mueller is a hired gun, a Billy the Kid or Jesse James hired by the greedy cattle rancher to get chase the GOP out of the White House so that they can move their own guy or gal in.
Mueller is a prosecutor and has only one function in life, to prosecute. If you want justice, you would have hired a judge.
Mueller’s whole motive is to find someone he can pin something, anything on, innocent or guilty, as long as he can convince a grand jury that he has assembled enough to make the charge stick.
For those haunted by his ruthless campaign, this can ruin their lives, much the way Big Rig III did in New Jersey a decade ago where innocent people pleaded guilty because they could not afford the high-priced lawyers to counter the legal charges against them. Even some who proved their innocence lost everything they had doing so. So you understand why Flynn is broke.
But then, Flynn made the dreadful mistake of lying to the FBI. This is like lying to the Gestapo.
While you might argue with a cop about how fast you were going when he or she pulls you over for speeding, the FBI is a whole different matter.
When they knock on your door, you get to understand a little how the Jews felt when the Nazis came.
You cooperate or go to hell.
Mueller, of course, only acts like a Nazi.
He is simply a hired gun for the Democrats to bring Trump down, and will do everything he can to find anything he can use to accomplish this, even if it isn’t true. As long as he can find evidence enough to convince a Grand Jury and get headlines in a slanted media, he’ll do it, foaming at the mouth like the mad dog he is.

quote Groucho, not Karl, Marx: “I wouldn’t want to b e a member of any club
that would have someone like me as a member.”This
pretty much sums up the current state of media in America, where membership
re3quires that its journalists subscribe to a particular ideology or become
mistakenly described as “The Fourth Estate,” media has taken on the erroneous self-perception
that it somehow compares to elected office such as president or congress or appointed
office such as the U.S. Supreme Court – when it is actually a self-appointed
position with nearly no oversight or honored system of ethics.Journalism
today has largely degenerated into (or perhaps always was) little more than a
powerful special interest group, like the NRA, except instead of shooting
bullets, it kills people with headlines and slanted news coverage.Unlike
someone seeking to buy a weapon, a journalist rarely must go through a criminal
background check or obtain a permit to operate in his or her lethal profession.In
fact, until recently almost anybody could become a journalist with little more
than a high school education but wielding unbearable levels of power with
little restraint beyond their editor or publisher, who also equally have no
has always sold itself as the checks and balance against government abuse with nothing
to serve as check and balance of its own abuses.As
with politicians, journalists a prey to corruption.I’ve
known a number of corrupt reporters, some took up unholy alliances with the
politicians they were hired to cover, even going to far as to sleep with and
spy for, and sometimes work for the campaigns of the politicians.These,
of course, are clear violations of journalist ethics and subject to
termination, if you can actually convince their editors or publishers that such
transgressions have taken place.But
the media industry itself as a much deeper corruption, something not just
tolerated by its membership, but promoted and protected by a brother-and-sisterhood
of high priests who have become the religious leader of a liberal faith.Generally,
reporters who do not subscribe to this orthodoxy are isolated and eventually
driven out of the priesthood. There are some exceptions, token conservatives
kept on to maintain the fiction of objectivity, but never part of the inner
circle of faith.In
my experience, I have met an editor with a feminist agenda, who flatly refuses
to even play lip service to media’s façade of objectivity, actively and knowingly
slanting stories to embarrass or humiliate conservative politicians she covers,
going as far as to encourage fledgling reporters under her charge to do the
same. In her mind, “conservative” is not a political choice, but position of
evil that she feels responsible to expose if not destroy.Some
editors do not even believe in objectivity at all, one-time journalists who have
become advocates of a liberal agenda, reading all the proper slanted liberal journals,
subscribing to all the proscribed liberal testaments of faith. The best these editors
can hope for is to be “fair,” which means to make sure to get a comment from
the subjected being gutted by the current news story.Still
other editors hide their agenda behind their reporters, loading them up with
loaded questions that ultimately produce the slant the editor wants in their first
place, and then throw up their hands when someone accused the editor of being
slanted. Such people are the first to defend media as objective, partly because
they cannot have its lack of objectivity exposed without also exposing their
are, of course, conservative journalists, working for networks such as Fox. But
mainstream media tends to dismiss these as journalists who have fallen from the
true faith and have opted to adopt the dark side of the force. Conservative
journalists may not be evil in themselves, but they serve an evil purpose.Part
of the blame for the liberal slant in contemporary journalism must fall on the
shoulders of American universities through which modern journalist must pass in
order to take their eventual place in the priesthood. Mainstream universities
have become so politically correct that when people talk about a liberal
education, they mean it literally. Once indoctrinated, it is difficult if not
impossible to become objective.But
even old school journalists including some working as columnists on major New
Jersey daily newspapers have sipped the Kool Aid, and use questionably objective
sources such as The Washington Post as their scripture, in some cases, these newspapers
actually reprint the original stories as if Biblical verse.Journalism
is not and perhaps never was The Fourth Estate.It
is simply another special interest group like the NRA or Black Lives Matters
with true believers setting a particular liberal agenda in order to spread its
independent reporters exist – even in the most corrupted media such as CNN, The
Huffington Post or The Hill, but as with black lists of the past, such people
do not dare speak out too loudly or too often against the liberal orthodoxy without
risking loss of credibility or employment.There
are varying degrees of true-believers just as there are varying degrees of
sports fans. Not all tattoo their faces with the New York Yankees logo or inflict
their inflated sense of self-righteousness on the unsuspecting public.But
the tattoos are there on the faces of the major players, such as The Washington
Post and The New York Times, spreading their agenda in the guise of truth, acting
self-appointed arbitrators of truth, hiding their ill will behind the First Amendment
the way the NRA hides its behind the Second – merely selling a news product a
public that mistakenly accepts it as fact.

Liberal media is giving us a remake of “The Night of the Living Dead.”
We’re currently in the scene where the President and his family are trapped in the house with the zombies breaking in at the windows, looking for weaknesses in order to get at the real people inside.
But these are passive aggressive media zombies, and the general public is supposed to feel sorry for the zombies.
In fact, I do feel ashamed of myself for comparing media to zombies. In these days of political correctness, we’re not supposed to insult zombies like that.
Watching media work is like watching maggots swarming over some poor fool’s festering wound. We are assured that the maggots serve some noble purpose, but it makes us retch to watch them work.
Like the zombies in the old-fashioned movies – when zombies were still considered bad guys – media continues to probe for weaknesses hoping to provoke the president into an overreaction they can exploit.
This, of course, is a sign of desperation as we in media seek out every petty thing we can in order to cause the president and his family pain.
As I said, this is a noble profession, even one that Mark Twain might admire, we maggots turning eventually into disease-ridden flies that – when we finish our job – get to swarm on our dead victim’s eyes.
To strike back at media is as pointless as swathing at flies, too. We just land some place else to deposit more larva and start the maggot cycle all over again, creating some new wound of some new victim we can infest.
Media, of course, likes playing the part of victim, those noble settlers in a wagon train making its way to settle the Great American West.
After we have butchered the buffalo and humiliated the Native Americans, we circle the wagons to defend good and bad settlers against the inevitable back lash against our noble profession.
When someone like Trump screams “fake news” we in media try to convince ourselves that we are the innocent victims inside the house the zombies are attaching, and Trump and his political kind are the zombies.
This is what I mean by passive aggressive.
No matter how vicious media becomes, how unethical are reporters act, no matter how mean our motives are, we as people and our profession are the real victims, not the people we attack.
And so we see ourselves inside the house, looking through the broken windows at the hoards of savage faces outside, trying to convince the American public that that those brainless, unethical maggots are someone else other than us.
It is a weak argument at best, not quite fake news, but close.
