Pussy Hats and Scaredy Cats

Our once great civilization continues to slumber towards its inevitable collapse. What is left of American culture is divided fairly evenly between venomous social justice warriors whose hatred is primarily directed at white male “haters,” and clueless conservatives desperately trying to save something that isn’t worth saving.

As my friend Cindy Sheehan likes to point out frequently, where are the Pussy Hats for Peace? Where are the social justice warriors concerned about our foreign policy of perpetual war? Instead, these angry “protesters” often seem to be protesting nothing of substance, beyond a vague animosity towards a “white” America that once was, and is long gone. They fear that the multi-divorced, foul-mouthed Trump will somehow bring all this “whiteness” back if he actually enforces our immigration laws. I would like to assure them they have nothing to worry about.

Donald Trump has proven one thing; he has no sincere principles, and is either a crass political opportunist or a lucky dimwit who has fooled everyone his entire life, much as Peter Sellers’ character did in the movie Being There. He has capitulated on every one of his numerous campaign promises. He appears to be heading down the road Ronald Reagan traveled, when he built a record that was diametrically opposed to his rhetoric, with his enthusiastic base oblivious to the inconsistencies.

The darling of the “conservatives” was recently revealed to have engaged in an adulterous affair with porn star Stormy Daniels. In a typical example of what happens in a corrupt, crumbling civilization, Daniels has now suddenly distanced herself from what were very specific and lurid details, and seemingly is denying that there ever was an affair.  It’s hard to imagine where Trump would get any “muscle” to persuade her to change her story, given the fact that everyone around him was at least at one time a Never Trumper.

While the President appears for all the world to be an infantile, supremely distracted chief executive, his opposition continues to do everything in their power to make him look good by comparison. Joe Kennedy III delivered the Democratic response to Trump’s State of the Union address last night. With all I know of the Kennedys’ tragic history, it is hard for me to believe the establishment will ever let this guy have a national impact on politics, no matter how innocuous his platform appears to be.

Young Kennedy appears to have been visibly drooling during his response speech, and online critics are jumping all over that. This is the new, less improved America; all sheen and no substance. Both misguided sides of what passes for political debate jump all over any perceived weakness of their opponents, much as bullies at all levels seek whatever weapons they can find, with which to practice their time-honored trade.

The “opposition” to Trump amounts to a celebration of illegal immigration and transgender bathrooms. There is no criticism from the pussy hats, or the endless stream of outraged celebrities, to Trump’s saber rattling with North Korea, or his senseless bombing of Syria, or his unprovoked threats against Iran, or his support for civil asset forfeiture laws and our out-of-control police forces, or his apparent fondness for GMO crops.

The pussy hats don’t care how many countries America unjustifiably bombs or occupies, as long as women and transgenders have a right to be in the front lines. Presumably, as long as America can make its troops “diverse” enough, anything they do is perfectly fine.

Trump’s private comments regarding “shithole” countries exposed the other side of this coin. He represents a dying breed of white American, primarily male, who relishes speaking their minds behind closed doors. And then apologizing once exposed, of course. No arguments about freedom of speech. No attempt to defend what they actually believe. To the pussy hats, there is no freedom of speech and there should be no opportunity to defend such “hatred,” or argue such points.

This kind of “scaredy cat” thinking goes back to the World War II generation. When I was a young worker, it always astounded me to see how dishonest these aging “greatest generation” members were. To a man, all of them delighted in telling racist jokes and dropping the “N” word liberally when no minorities were present. Then these same people would fall all over themselves when any black worker was around, trying to ingratiate themselves to them by talking “jive” in a most embarrassing manner.

I generally think Pat Buchanan is one of the best and brightest of our age. However, even he has fallen prey to this “scaredy cat” thinking. When David Duke attempted to get the Republican presidential nomination, Buchanan-who was running as well and obviously drew support from the same voter demographic-defeated him in a primary, and shamefully bragged about drumming Duke out of the Republican party. On the surface, there was no discernible difference between Duke and Buchanan on the issues. But this has always been a problem with Buchanan; while clearly thinking like a revolutionary on most issues, at heart he wants to get the approval of  the Stupid Party leaders like his old hero Richard Nixon (who refused to support him when he challenged George H.W. Bush in the 1992 primaries.)

So we have a “debate” between largely irrational social justice warriors, whose primary issue is to stop “white privilege,” especially white male privilege, from rearing its ugly head anywhere; and hypocritical white “conservatives,” whose every utterance must be  proofread for traces of “racism,” or “sexism,” or “hate.”

Will the pussy hats become incensed over Trump’s foolish recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel? Do they even know where Jerusalem is? After all, Jerusalem, like most of the world outside America, isn’t renowned for its transgender policies. Do they even know what GMO is, let alone that Trump supports their ingredients in our foods? Are they aware that the FDA recently moved to try to outlaw all holistic medical practices and supplements? But you can be certain they’d be howling at the top of their lungs if the mayor of Jerusalem or a high ranking official of the FDA said something that could be construed as “racist.”

We have surely reached another milestone in the development of the Idiocracy, when stories circulate that our arrogant, juvenile president liked to be spanked with a copy of Forbes magazine. He also drinks a supposed twelve Diet Cokes every day, but was given a clean bill of health recently nonetheless. Meanwhile, each day brings new allegations of sexual assault or harassment from some actress somewhere, leveled against someone in the entertainment business.

They say that Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Regarding our own collapse, will we see Trump tweeting, and the pussy hats flinging literal feces, and the putrid mainstream media proclaiming that women and minorities will face the most difficult challenges?
