Liberal comic and social commentator Bill Maher recently opined about the Chinese Communist government’s growing dominance over the United States. He referred to People as “foolish individuals” and rhetorically requested, “Why are we sleeping?” in reference to the truth that the Chinese language are consuming our lunch seven methods from Sunday.
He then answered his personal query saying, “Nothing ever strikes on this impacted colon of a rustic. We see an issue and we ignore it, lie about it, battle about it with one another, endlessly litigate it, sundown clause it, kick it down the highway, after which write a invoice the place a half-assed resolution doesn’t kick in for 10 years. In the meantime, the Chinese language Communist Social gathering sees an issue and so they repair it. They construct a dam, whereas we debate what to rename it.”
As a proud American who as soon as wore the uniform of our nation combatting communism in Southeast Asia, it completely despatched shivers down my backbone when Maher stated, “We’re not dropping to the Chinese language Communist Social gathering, we misplaced! The returns simply haven’t all are available but.”
Maher who is understood for his incisive wit, political satire and sociopolitical commentary made it abundantly clear that in his opinion we’ve got moved away from the hopefulness of the American Revolution and changed it with the fascism of the Cultural Revolution.
In immediately’s America, a person in blue, in my view, receives much less respect than a person in a costume. And if my neighbor stomps on after which burns Previous Glory in the midst of Bridge Avenue, the “woke” would name it “freedom of expression,” but when he had been to do the identical to a rainbow or Black Lives Matter flag, he’d doubtless be charged with a hate crime and harassed out of the county by the cancel tradition.
And talking of the cancel tradition, it’s past intellectually dishonest to match or decide the Founding Fathers, who lived 250 years in the past, by the ethical requirements of our personal day, but that’s precisely what the hypocritical cancel tradition does. Nearer to dwelling, I give the Vail Day by day editor Nate Peterson credit score for ignoring the calls and emails he receives asking that I be eradicated i.e., “canceled” from the Day by day’s secure of commentary writers. The First Modification be damned, the cancel tradition is alive and properly proper right here in Glad Valley.
And when these emails attain my inbox, it’s widespread to be known as a “traitor, moron, fool, or liar” (take your decide). Attention-grabbing too, these descriptors are all the time preceded by a really particular transitive verb starting with the sixth letter of the alphabet — ah sure, the civility and decency of the cancel tradition.
In the meantime, we’ve got a president who appears to imagine partitions are racist except, in fact, political elites reside behind them as his administration passively watched as more than one million illegal aliens have entered this country since January, with maybe one million extra anticipated by yr’s finish. Including insult to damage, lots of these right here illegally are being put up in hotel rooms whereas homeless veterans reside within the streets. And I want somebody would clarify to me the way it is sensible for the administration to even ponder a masks mandate while allowing the vast majority of those crossing the border to enter this country without being tested for COVID.
We also needs to discover it disturbing that elected officers in Washington embrace a specious important race idea with a purpose to persuade members of 1 race that they’re perennial oppressors, whereas telling members of one other race that they’re perpetual victims, after which try and treatment this synthetic assemble with coverage they discuss with as “fairness.”
One can spend hours analyzing the social ills of this nation however what all of it boils right down to is that this: The place are we headed? Solely the nice Lord can reply that; however contemplating an incoherent COVID response the place guidelines and pointers appear to alter weekly, gasoline costs are above $4 a gallon and rising, growing violence on our metropolis streets and an economic system weakened by inflation, you do the mathematics.
