Trump voters are constructive, productive, and joyful, Biden voters are destructive, parasitic, and miserable which side would you rather call home?
Portrait Of The Biden Voter — Manhattan Contrarian
"Over at Instapundit, Professor Glenn Reynolds is often the master of the pithy phrase that captures the essence of the political moment. Yesterday Reynolds wrote that, while the Democrats are trying to make everything in this election (and in life) about race, “Trump’s making clear that it’s about people who are constructive, productive, and generally happy, vs. people who are destructive, parasitic, and generally miserable, and that that difference transcends things like race.”
Have things really gotten so bad that the entire Democrat/Biden campaign has become the coalition of the “destructive, parasitic, and generally miserable”? Well, you can start with the protesters/rioters/looters/arsonists who have been endlessly destroying businesses and neighborhoods in major Democrat-run cities for the past three months. Yes, those people are “destructive, parasitic, and generally miserable”; and of course, every one of them intends to vote for Biden. And if you think that the conduct and attitudes of those people are somehow not representative of the Democrat/Biden coalition, ask yourself who in that coalition has been willing to come forth to strongly condemn them. The answer is no one.
But for today, let’s move beyond the riots and violence that have been dominating the news cycle, and look at what’s going on in the regular run-of-the-mill precincts of progressive/Democrat Biden-voting monoculture — places like woke corporations, the art world, and academia.
For our corporate example, consider the case of Sandia National Laboratories. It is a private company, but 100% federally funded, working mostly on designing nuclear weapons. If you think that such a corporation would not be a likely place for progressive indoctrination and orthodoxy enforcement, you would be wrong. An engineer working at Sandia by the name of Casey Peterson, along with some hundreds of his colleagues, recently got sent by the company to get training on their “white privilege” and on “systemic racism.” After sitting through this thing, Peterson decided that the supposed training course was egregious enough to require him to push back. On Tuesday (August 27) he put out an hour-long video describing the training sessions at length, and apparently he then emailed the video to some 16,000 people at Sandia. The video can be found at this link. It is filled with quotes from the so-called “training,” and from materials recommended in the “training.” A journalist named Christopher Rufo got wind of the situation, and has been publicizing it. On August 12 Rufo published a piece that described a similar training session that the top execs of Sandia had attended last year. Here are some choice excerpts from Rufo’s piece:
Last year, the national laboratory sent its white male executives to the La Posada luxury resort to undergo a mandatory training called “White Men’s Caucus on Eliminating Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia in Organizations.” . . . The trainers insist . . . the white male employees must expose the “roots of white male culture,” which consists of “rugged individualism,” “a can-do attitude,” “hard work,” and “striving towards success”—which sound good, but are in fact “devastating” to women and POCs. In fact, the trainers claim that “white male culture” leads to “lowered quality of life at work and home, reduced life expectancy, unproductive relationships, and high stress.” It also forces this “white male standard” on women and minorities. In a subsequent session, the white males must publicly recite a series of “white privilege statements” and “male privilege statements.” They must accept their complicity in the white male system and their role in creating oppressions.
Do you sometimes wonder why so few quotes from these things seem to get leaked into the public forum? Here’s what happened to Peterson (from an August 27 tweet by Rufo):
Within hours [of Peterson distributing his video], Sandia executives dispatched a counterintelligence team to lock Peterson out of the network and scrub his communications from internal servers—which, via the Streisand Effect, made the video even more viral and sparked widespread unrest against Sandia executives.
So this situation is only just beginning to play out. Apparently Peterson has found some support within the employees at Sandia. He does not appear likely to back down easily; but of course, he probably will lose his job.
Or consider the next example of woke Biden-voting monoculture, art museums. In the brand new (September 2020) issue of The New Criterion, Roger Kimball has a piece headlined “The mob comes for the art world.” OK, you already know that the “art world” — the world of trendy artists and their galleries and museums — is part of the progressive groupthink, where dissent is not allowed. But what you may not know is that this art world is going through what Kimball calls a “purity spiral,” akin to the French Revolution, where each day increasingly higher levels of ideological purity are demanded to avoid the dread cancelation. As a leading example, Kimball gives the case of Keith Christiansen, a distinguished curator at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, who recently made the mistake of praising French archaeologist Alexandre Lenoir (the guy famous for saving many artistic works from the destruction of the French Revolution) for “realiz[ing] that their value—both artistic and historical—extended beyond a defining moment of social and political upheaval and change.” Christiansen promptly got hit with a New York Times piece that called him “insensitive and tone deaf.” And then there are these other examples cited by Kimball:
The curatorial staff at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum issued a letter to the museum’s management decrying “an inequitable work environment that enables racism, white supremacy, and other discriminatory practices.” Unhappy ex-staffers at the New Orleans Museum of Art have issued an open letter castigating its “plantation-like culture” and racist attitudes. Ditto the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Gary Garrels, the senior curator of painting and sculpture at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, was forced out after remarking during an online meeting that “we will definitely still continue to collect white artists.” Not to do so, he said, amounts to “reverse discrimination.”
Off with his head!
And I haven’t even gotten yet to the world of academia, where, as you know, the mob descends most every day on some poor soul or other who dares to dissent from the latest dictate of progressive purity. Here is a roundup of academic excess covering just the past week published on the Legal Insurrection blog today. Two of the best: Wisconsin Lutheran College faces backlash from students and alumni for inviting Vice President Mike Pence to speak; and Skidmore College students demand firing of faculty members who attended “Back the Blue” rally.
My question is, who would want to be associated with these people?"
Democrats Blame Trump for Violence After Months of BLM and Antifa Riots
Then again, with what we know from the Trump coup, these agencies are probably helping move the money. We have a serious problem, we need a new government organization model and an 80% - 90% reduction in the government workforce at all government levels. We need to do government via computer algorithm, not biased humans.
It's worse than that; it is a way to institutionalize the problem so progressive/Democrat politicians can "solve" it again year after year
‘Compassion’ isn’t a fix for homelessness — it’s just virtue signaling
Progressive/Democrat oliticians want homelessness to be permanent so it needs annual "fixing." These trolls are willing to sacrifice people for their political gain. Do you want to support these people? I don't.
CNN and Twitter Target President Trump
CNN lies; it does nothing else, just like the rest of the media. Lies cause more panic, and panic delivers more views, so they lie. It is about money and supporting the Dem Party.
The Attempt To Overthrow America
Authored by Guy Millière via The Gatestone Institute,
The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 might appear, looking back, as a pretext for mayhem. His reported killing by a white police officer was immediately followed by a wave of riots during which neighborhoods in several major cities were devastated. Stores were looted, buildings were burned and people were murdered as mayors and other local public officials chose to let the rioters run wild, whip up racial conflict and protect the criminals rather than the citizens being brutalized. The riots quickly appeared to have nothing to do with Floyd's death and everything to do with groups seeking to overthrow America.
In the past, members of the radical organization Antifa had committed acts of violence, but never before had been able to sow terror throughout major cities. This time, they could and they did.
In addition, the Marxist movement Black Lives Matter (BLM), which seemed to have disappeared since the election of President Donald J. Trump -- who, incidentally, did more for the black and Hispanic minority communities in three years than anyone had done for decades -- suddenly reappeared, well-funded and well-organized, at the heart of the riots. BLM received further support from the mayors of several major cities and gained even more popularity while attacking first the statues of former slave-owners, such as George Washington, and then those of the escaped slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass. In Washington, DC and New York City, "Black Lives Matter" was painted on avenues in huge yellow letters – in New York by the mayor himself.
This may have been the first time in US history that a Marxist movement received corporate support: Amazon, Microsoft, Nabisco, Gatorade, Deckers and other large American firms donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, now a major beneficiary of US corporate largesse. Many colleges and universities also joined in backing the movement. The trustees of Princeton University decided to remove Woodrow Wilson's name from the university's school of public policy. They said that they had examined the "long and damaging history of racism in America" and that Wilson's "racist thinking and policies make him an inappropriate namesake for a school or college". Calls to "#CancelYale" surged across social media, alleging that Yale's namesake, Elihu Yale, was a slave-owner and slave-trader, and that the university must change its name, as well. Yale University President, Peter Salovey, however, said that would not be done, explaining that Yale was "relatively unexceptional in his own time."
Also for the first time, mayors of many cities and other local officials have deliberately protected criminals over law-abiding citizens and allowed the destruction to take place. Seattle's Mayor Jenny Durkan abandoned an entire area of the city, dubbed CHAZ (and later CHOP) to rioters and suggested that the police-free zone would create a "summer of love", then did nothing while rapes, vandalism and murders took place. Portland's Mayor Ted Wheeler has allowed for nearly three months an entire district fall prey to rioters. The city councils of New York and Los Angeles, America's two largest cities, voted to cut the budgets of their police forces drastically. The Minneapolis City Council went even further and voted to disband the city's police force altogether.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, in a seeming surrender to the mob, began referring to the pandemonium in Portland as the "immense power of peaceful protests" and compared federal law enforcement officers trying to defend a federal building against marauding arsonists to Nazi-era "stormtroopers."
Former President Barack Obama, speaking at the funeral of a civil rights leader, Congressman John Lewis, compared President Trump to the segregationist governor of Alabama in the 1960s, George Wallace -- who happened to be a Democrat. He spoke of "police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans," distorting the facts. In Minneapolis, a single policeman had knelt on the neck of a single black American, once. The police officer is in jail, awaiting trial, and his abuse has been severely and universally condemned.
The idea that the American police are "racist" has been used to justify riots and destruction. Some police officers may well be racist, but accusing all American police officers of racism does not align with the facts. Statistics show that the vast majority of black people killed by police officers are armed and dangerous. Moreover, the police officers involved are sometimes black. Statistics also show that, on average, 94% of the black people killed each year in the US are killed by other black people. But many people who talk about racism do not seem even slightly concerned about those black lives that have been taken. During the riots -- in which people were killed by rioters or by looters who used the riots as cover -- the main victims were black people, sometimes children.
Already in 2017, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich had worried about the sporadic riots that were breaking out, for instance, when conservative speakers were invited to speak. The United States, he said , "is in the throes of a one-sided cultural civil war.... Surrender or fight – our country is at stake."
The situation, in fact, had become "worrying" even before the results of the 2016 presidential election were known.
As we now can read in the report by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the senior levels of government during the Obama Administration were colluding to prevent President Trump from winning the election, and then, after it, to frame him in an attempted coup d'état.
On the day after the election, people took to the streets with signs saying, "Not my President": President Trump's legitimacy was immediately questioned. On the day of his inauguration, in the downtown area of Washington DC, violent riots and acts of vandalism took place.
During the weeks that followed, President Trump was accused, with no evidence, of "collusion with Russia". The false charges lasted for more than two years and may well have hampered the management of the country. Former CIA Director John Brennan claimed that President Trump had "worked with Russians" and was "treasonous". When the accusations turned out to be unfounded, the president's accusers, in the hope of impeaching him, turned to a telephone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. President Trump was described as having "endangered the security of the country". An impeachment procedure, conducted in violation of all of the rules, followed. When law professor Jonathan Turley pointed out that the procedure was violating the rules, he received death threats. Retired Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz said that "For Congress to impeach President Trump for abuse of Congress would be an abuse of power by Congress". Left-wing members of the House of Representatives went ahead impeaching the president anyway. They failed.
In the effort to overturn the lawful 2016 election -- and to coerce witnesses to "flip" and testify falsely against President Trump -- the lives of others were ruined as well.
Evidence now clearly shows that General Michael Flynn, an outstanding four-star general and war hero, was the victim of an entrapment plot that forced him to resign, ruined him financially, and came close to destroying his life. He is now in the throes of an attempt to entrap him again by a politicized judge, Emmett Sullivan, and a politicized judiciary. Although the prosecutor, the Department of Justice, dropped the case after it was disclosed that vast amounts of exculpatory evidence had been withheld -- Judge Sullivan decided, illegally and in the finest tradition of the former Soviet Union, that he would be both the judge and the prosecutor, and continue to try the case that he was supposed to be impartially judging. The trial is still ongoing. Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi were among other innocent citizens who also had their lives upended.
Attorney General William Barr recently said:
"I thought things were partisan and tough 30 years ago — nothing compared to today. Things have fundamentally changed... [the left] represents a revolutionary Rousseauian party that believes in tearing down the system... They're interested in complete political victory. They're not interested in compromise. They're not interested in dialectic, exchange of views... It's a substitute religion. They view their political opponents... as evil because we stand in the way of their progressive utopia that they're trying to reach..."
As Barr said recently when testifying at House of Representatives committee: "Since when is it okay to burn down a federal court?"
Thirty years ago, many things were indeed different. Destructive forces, however, were at work. A few authors attempted to sound an alarm, without success.
In a book published in 1992, The Devaluing of America: The Fight for Our Culture and Our Children, former Secretary of Education William J. Bennett quoted prominent Democrat historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.:
"The bonds of national cohesion in the republic are sufficiently fragile already. Public education should aim to strengthen those bonds not to weaken them... The alternative to integration is disintegration".
The same year, policy analyst Martin Anderson published Impostors in the Temple: American Intellectuals Are Destroying Our Universities and Cheating Our Students of Their Future. "They pretend to teach", he wrote, "they pretend to do original, important work. They do neither. They are impostors in the temple. And from these impostors most of the educational ills of America flow."
The same year again, the esteemed economist and social commentator, Thomas Sowell, who happens to be black, wrote in his book, Inside American Education:
"Whether blatant or subtle, brainwashing has become a major, time-consuming activity in American education at all levels".
There is arguably more at work than brainwashing. There is also the long march of the radicals through American institutions described by Roger Kimball in his book The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America. Now, as those students have graduated, they are now part of the government and large corporations, subverting Western culture from within.
American author David Horowitz, described what has been happening since November 8, 2016 as "sabotage", and wrote recently:
"On the Rotunda of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington is inscribed these words: 'I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.' This statement by Thomas Jefferson is the heart of the democracy in whose founding he played so central a role. It is why the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights is the First Amendment and not the Second, or Fourth, or Fifth.
"Today our nation is facing the most serious threat to establish such a tyranny in our entire history."
Whether Biden will debate Trump is still in question, but the Biden versus Biden debates have begun in earnest!

The NFL is good with pedophilic rape
