The West heads South

“First the humanities, then the social sciences and now even the sciences have been forced to bend to identity politics.” Editorial, The Wall Street Journal

The New York Times has tried to replace 1776 with the 1619 arrival of the first slaves to North America as a racist America’s founding event.” Ibid

“In the case of slavery, what was peculiar about the West was that it’s the first civilization to turn against slavery, beginning in the eighteenth century and that it destroyed slavery around the world beginning in the nineteenth century.” Thomas Sowell, Intellectuals and Society, p. 308

“By and large, for most of history, Europeans enslaved other Europeans, Africans enslaved other Africans and Asians enslaved other Asians.” Ibid., p. 309

The Agony of the Democrats

Bernie Sanders is riding the intellectual currents that the party and its elites have nurtured.

Bernie Sanders’s victory in New Hampshire on top of his tie in Iowa makes him a favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination. Hard to believe, but in a winnable race against President Trump the opposition may nominate a socialist who wants the government to control energy production and health care, who wants nationwide rent control, and who calls America a “racist society from top to bottom.” No wonder Democrats like James Carville are in agony.

The Vermont revolutionary’s victory portends a long primary battle, unless Democratic voters elevate a single mainstream candidate who can challenge him. Mr. Sanders will get his 25% to 30% primary after primary, racking up delegates on his way to the convention. If other candidates keep dividing the other votes, he will be hard to stop, as Mr. Trump was for Republicans in 2016. Even if a single alternative emerges, Mr. Sanders won’t go down without a ferocious intra-party fight.

I’m Not a Communist

“Last night on CNN, Bernie Sanders called me [James Carville] a political hack…At least I’m not a communist.” Joe Concha

James Carville fired back at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for calling him “a political hack,” calling the self-described democratic socialist “a communist.”
The back and forth follows a week in which Carville has repeatedly sounded the alarm about a potential Sanders match-up against President Trump in November, calling the scenario “the end of days” for the Democratic Party while referring to Sanders supporters as “a cult.”
Sanders returned fire on Wednesday night during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, arguing that “political hack” Carville represents the establishment his campaign is running against.
“James, in all due respect, is a political hack,” Sanders said. “We are taking on Trump, the Republican establishment, Carville and the Democratic establishment. But at the end of the day, the grassroots movement that we are putting together — of young people, of working people, of people of color — want real change.” Continue reading

Meet George Soros

Soros Starts $1 Billion Anti-American University

Fighting nationalism and climate change are its goals.

Matthew Vadum, Frontpagemag.com, February 11, 2020

Radical anti-American financier George Soros recently unveiled a scheme to sink $1 billion into a new global university to fight nationalism and climate change, twin phantoms he emotes are “threatening the survival of our civilization.”

Why is this a bad thing?

Because global warming is a hoax and nationalism –at least in a good nation like the United States— is a good thing, and because Soros is a living, breathing malignancy who has devoted the past several decades of his life to advancing evil in the world.

If America is indeed “one nation under God,” as the Pledge of Allegiance states, then believing in and supporting this country is American nationalism.

That is a bridge too far for Soros, a naturalized American, who views himself as a citizen of the world.

Soros said in 2018 that nationalism was “the dominant ideology in the world,” but to him, all nationalism, including American nationalism, is bad. People like Soros regard nationalism as tribalism, jingoism, superpatriotism, or a combination of the three. Because he is an Esperanto-speaking, United Nations-loving internationalist, Soros hurls the word “nationalism” as an epithet.

Not surprisingly, he rejects the idea of American sovereignty and wishes to eradicate it, which helps to explain his underwriting of radical open-borders groups.

As Cheryl Chumley argues in the Washington Times, Soros is spending a billion dollars on OSUN “to train the next generation in the evils of sovereignty — to teach the emerging youth how to become good obedient citizens of the world. Continue reading
