As we approach 2004, we should take a last fleeting look into the rearview mirror. Think of it as an inoculation against future perils…
No, this won’t be going away soon, and frankly, there’s lots to be anti-American about. We have the incredible evil of unlimited abortion on demand, a functionally atheist and socialistic government, a political system that bases its power on keeping millions as wards of the State, a popular culture that goes out of its way to reward the most vulgar behavior imaginable, and a immigration system that is doing its best to transform the very fabric of the nation—to name only a few.
But, these aren’t the things that energize the typical America-hater.
For al Qaeda, it’s really as simple as Muslim versus Christian (and Jewish) hatred. Pay no mind to those clueless “analysts,” who would prefer to transfer the blame back to us, citing our support of Israel and export of execrable pop culture. Is that why they’re killing Christians in Sudan? Heck, they even try to kill their own if they’re not militant enough.
For the multitudes of Eurotrash, living in economies that dream of being elevated to what would be recessions here, they hate us for our success, and truth be told, for our huevos. Say what you want about the French, they are none too pleased about what’s happening to their country, and are even more upset that they can’t seem to do anything about it.
Wide-open Europe, hoisted on its own petard of being deathly afraid of being called “racist,” secretly wishes the rightist candidates would somehow win; but how can they if you’re afraid to talk about them, much less vote for them? So, they get back at us by propping up their made-up unified currency (smartly eschewed by the Brits) to levels completely unsupported by reality—but it won’t last.
Meanwhile, on the home front, our Leftist America-haters all start off as those bright, inquisitive, and maybe nerdy junior high students, encouraged by their loser teachers (what else can you do with a 2.0 from Humboldt State?) that have them dig deep, beyond the normal texts, to uncover the “true meaning” and EE-VILLLE of America. Encouraged in their pointless quest, by the time they get to college (usually a good one) they buy into the rantings of Marcuse, Chomsky, and all the rest, who would be jailed if they actually lived in the countries they profess to love.
By the time they graduate, it’s already too late. While they are determined to make the big bucks, how can they throw off all that valuable education of theirs? Fighting off the natural urge to accommodate to actual experience, they put up a good front, keep spouting all the correct Leftist drivel, and marry someone just like them. Afraid to tell their kids the truth, the cycle begins anew.
Sickening Celebrity Trials
We’ve already had Winona Ryder, OJ Simpson, John Landis, Paula Poundstone, Errol Flynn, Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, and Sean Combs. In each of those cases, and in many more, nothing resembling justice was ever done, even if with Arbuckle, it worked out the other way.
So, why should our current crop be any different?
Don’t expect anything bigger than a slap on the wrist for Koby Bryant and Michael Jackson. And, if you’re thinking about the race card, forget it. In our pathetic society, clearly reflected on juries, celebrity status trumps all. If their victims were black, do you seriously believe it would make one iota of difference?
Perhaps this fixation with celebrity is one way that people can escape from their own miserable little lives for awhile. Of course, they COULD try to improve them…
Attacks On Tradition And Objective Morality
All through 2003, the ACLU and other crypto-Commie organizations have been removing Ten Commandments memorials around the country, finding justifications for gay marriage, and generally following in the footsteps of their spiritual leader, Antonio Gramsci.
Expect this to continue unabated, even at an accelerated pace in 2004. You have already noticed that NO ONE in the Republican leadership has uttered a public word about any of this. However, the time is ripe for someone—maybe a religious leader or pundit who realizes he could make a name for himself—to come out of the woodwork.
Yes, we do live in interesting times.
