My Thoughts On Hodgkinson

James HodgkinsonFor what they’re worth, here are my thoughts on the June 14, 2017 mass assassination attempt of Republican Congressmen in Alexandria, VA:

In all ways, shapes, and forms this was utterly predictable as was the aftereffects and rhetoric that followed. It is and was so predictable in fact that it seems almost pointless to comment upon. Hence, the delay in my doing so.

Not Just Bound To Happen, Planned To Happen

That Hodgkinson, a far-left neo-Socialist who was a fanatical follower of Bernie Sanders, went “over the edge” and tried to murder a large number of Republican politicians was totally predictable in the larger context.

Bernie’s campaign rhetoric and much of what has come out of his mouth since was centered on enraging the Left and focusing their anger on Republicans. Much of it is and was far closer to “war talk” than anything Sara Palin ever said. He may publicly claim he found Hodgkinson’s act of terrorism despicable, but his own rhetorical modis operendi has always been one that leads to this sort of political violence. It was utterly predictable that one of the failures that were devoted to him would do such a thing at some point or another.

Similarly, the apocalyptic rhetoric coming out of the mouths of Democrat politicians and dutifully repeated, amplified, and extrapolated upon by the Lamestream Enemedia was explicitly planned and designed to incite rage among the Liberals and Progressives. It is no shock whatsoever that one of their “more vulnerable” members – i.e., one of their worse failures in life – would decide that killing off as many of the GOP as possible was the right and only recourse available.

And, while “planned” may be, and probably is, too strong of a term when applied to the Democrat politicians, I don’t feel it is so when applied to the “news media.” They got a lot a lot of rating boosts and, resultantly, a big boost in the auction value for ad spots from Hodgkinson as they knew they would. So, while it would be ridiculous to claim that they planned for Hodgkinson, it’s not in any way foolish, reactionary, or hyperbolic to say that their coverage of politics since President Trump’s election has been specifically designed to cause greater reaction and violence among the Left because that’s good business for them.

Same Old, Same Old Responses

Frankly, the various reactions and responses to Hodgkinson’s mass assassination attempt were even more predictable – and, hence, boring in a maddening extreme at this point – then his attack itself. Fucking Harlequin Romances from the ’70s and -80s were less formulaic and scripted.

  • The Schadenfreude from the gun-grabbers – utterly predictable
  • The claim, albeit short lived, that Hodgkinson used an AR-15 – utterly predictable
  • The expressions of support for- endorsement of Hodgkinson’s action by devotees of Obamacare – utterly predictable
  • The calls for compassion towards- and understanding Hodgkinson – utterly predictable
  • Bernie trying to disavow and distance himself from Hodgkinson – utterly predictable
  • The fact that after 24 hours the sole focus of the media was reporting upon people’s opinions of- and positions upon gun control – utterly predictable
  • The blaming of the GOP and more specifically President Trump for the attack – utterly predictable
  • The “praying for” the victims and their families and the calls for unity – utterly predictable

It’s not even an original script. It just another rendition of the one used for each and every Muslim terrorist attack inside America’s border and damn close to – have to leave out some of the gun-grabbers’ schtick – that used for any Muslim terror attack worldwide.

Those, my gentle readers, are my thoughts on Hodgkinson and his attack. Predictable, pointless, and utterly without consequence except for the principals involved and their families.

Our Educated Enemies

Our Educated Enemies Proudly Displaying Their Hate For Us
Our Educated Enemies

The womyn over at HuffPo are gushing over the continuance of the trend for Latina college graduates to decorate themselves and the caps with Hispanic-centric ornaments and messages. This is not surprising since the sorts that run HuffPo almost always side with America’s enemies, both foreign and domestic, and probably prefer America to have educated enemies – educated at our colleges and universities, often on our dime – within our borders where they can do us the most harm.

That being said, don’t make the mistake of believing that I am utterly against the trend of #latinxgradcaps or think of the Latinas engaging in this behavior as being monolithic. Many, as can be seen from the photos on HuffPo, are innocuous and objectively non-offensive. Some, however, are quite anti-American and HuffPo not only makes no distinction, they showcase them.

Imagine, if you will, what the response would have been to a Non-Hispanic White draping themselves in the American flag at a graduation ceremony. It’s beyond doubtful that they’d be allowed to participate in the ceremony. Yet, not only are these Latinas allowed to do so while draped in the colors of foreign nations, they’re celebrated for doing so.

Be sure of this: These Latinas are our nations enemies, They’re within our borders and proudly proclaiming their loyalties to foreign powers. And they’re now educated enemies with the added advantage of Affirmative Action and a plethora of non-profit lawfare organizations, e.g., the ACLU, to aid them in their endeavors against us.

Atavistic Nationalism?

The American EagleThe American people have been excoriated for decades by Liberals and Progressives over our love of our country and culture. But finally, in the wake of Donald Trump’s rise to political power, our domestic enemies have shown their true colors and their core problem with Americans they’re allowed to live alongside. That problem, as the New York Times so gloatingly states, is our “atavistic nationalism.”

As language, idiom, and rhetoric have a certain importance – admittedly, one vastly overstated by certain sorts – allow me to dissect this.

Atavistic
Function: adjective
Date: 1835

Definition(s):

  1. Of or relating to the return of a trait or recurrence of previous behavior after a period of absence.
  2. Relating to or characterized by reversion to something ancient or ancestral

~*~

Nationalism
Function: noun
Date: 1844

Definition(s):

  1. loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially: a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups

So we have our domestic enemies ranting and raving in fear of- and in hate for something that they feel is part of our past that has been left behind; that something being the love of- devotion to our country, the United States of America.

Think about that. Digest it. Understand what the root cause of the Left’s issue with we, the American people is.
