Itís America for the Commoners! Get Used to It, Wokies!

I noticed Jonah Goldberg last week checking the altimeter in his spiral dive as he wondered why everyone is so angry if we’ve been having a “Super-Decade.”

Maybe you don’t know what’s going on, Jonah, but James Delingpole thinks The 2010s were the Twilight of the Elites. By the way, level the wings before you pull back on the stick.

So I am here to tell the confused elites what is really going down. You readers may agree with me, if you like.

The modern era started with the Rise of the Bourgeoisie. The folks that were transforming the world with manufacturing and commerce decided to change the rules of the feudal system and bring the absolute monarchs to heel. Hey, if you snooties wanted to use the credit system to finance your wars, we propose a constitution and a separation of powers to keep you dukes in check.

Then came the Rise of the Educated Gentry. What, they said? You expect us to go into the counting houses of our fathers and soil our educated hands with bills of exchange and listen to angry customers? You must be joking! We defy the fathers and their patriarchy! We demand a dictatorship of the proletariat -- led by us -- to bend the arc of history towards justice!

Definitely at a historical inflection point. After this, things either get much, much better or else they get much, much worse. We face a New World Order of one type or another.

Interesting twist on “good times make weak men” or slavery to slavery in eight steps.

“...After this, things either get much, much better or else they get much, much worse....”

If we stay armed, ready, and WILLING to use those tools if necessary - things get better.

If we allow ourselves to be disarmed, herded like sheep, and erased by the Left - things WILL get worse.

Those are the two choices. The ONLY two.

For the record... Americans don’t take kindly to being erased.

Fantastic article.

More people need to read it.

More importantly, more people on OUR side need to understand exactly what the Left wants to do to us.

You’d think it would be immediately apparent, but a lot of folks either can’t - or refuse to - accept it.

Anybody who fails to realize people like Rachel Maddow would put you and your entire family in cattle cars deserves what they get.

Sweden’s Communist Party is being smeared as Nazi because the working class members are increasing voting for the nationalist Democrat party. They reject mass immigration because it pulls down wages, they reject the alphabet mafia and Great Thunberg because it distracts from their core issues.

When SJWs lose the COMMUNISTS, they’re losing.

Great read! May help explain the decades-long decline of the GOPe into (potentially) complete irrelevancy...

“If we stay armed, ready, and WILLING to use those tools if necessary - things get better.”

Why do we always wait to fight until we get pushed in a corner when it would be so much easier to fight and win now?

Or as Churchill put it...

“Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.” Sir Winston S. Churchill

Biblically, this age goes out with a one world bang.

“...Why do we always wait to fight until we get pushed in a corner...”

Because we’re not the ones trying to force our beliefs on anyone.

“Because we’re not the ones trying to force our beliefs on anyone.”

But they are doing that to us, BY FORCE, so why do you want to wait until it’s a bloody war when we could do it sooner without the bloodshed.

If only we were half as organized and as activist as the other side we would have them on the run.

If we go to war with ourselves we lose.

If the dims can’t accept the 2020 elections and they go to war with demselves (burn down their own filthy cities etc) we win.

At least that’s what I think.

“...so why do you want to wait...”

I don’t.

But it’s as you said, “If only we were half as organized and as activist...”

Said the same thing myself, over and over. Then I became a firearms instructor so I COULD do something about it. It’s not much, but it’s something.
