    The American Descent into Madness

    America went from the freest country in the world in December 2019 to a repressive and frightening place by July 2021. How did that happen?
    By Victor Davis Hanson

    Nations have often gone mad in a matter of months. The French abandoned their supposedly idealistic revolutionary project and turned it into a monstrous hell for a year between July 1793 and 1794. After the election of November 1860, in a matter of weeks, Americans went from thinking secession was taboo to visions of killing the greatest number of their fellow citizens on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line. Mao’s China went from a failed communist state to the ninth circle of Dante’s Inferno, when he unleashed the Cultural Revolution in 1966.

    In the last six months, we have seen absurdities never quite witnessed in modern America. Madness, not politics, defines it. There are three characteristics of all these upheavals. One, the events are unsustainable. They will either cease or they will destroy the nation, at least as we know it. Two, the law has largely been rendered meaningless. Three, left-wing political agendas justify any means necessary to achieve them . . .

    Americans during this entire descent in madness sighed, “Well, at least there is the military left.” By that, I think they meant John Brennan had all but wrecked the CIA, while James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Kevin Clinesmith, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page, et al. had weaponized the FBI. But the military was still a bastion of traditional, nonpartisan service, whose prime directive was to defend the country, win any war it was ordered to fight, and to maintain deterrence against opportunistic enemies. It was not envisioned as a “people’s army.” It was not a revolutionary Napoleonic “nation in arms.” And it was not a “liberation army.” The Constitution, 233 years of tradition, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice all reassured America of its wonderful defense forces.

    And now? We are in the process of a massive reeducation and indoctrination campaign. The revamping not only draws scarce resources away from military readiness, but targets, without evidence, the white working class, and defames it as insurrectionary—the very same cohort that disproportionately died in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    If only General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Admiral Michael Gilday, chief of naval operations, had been as animated, as combative, and as fired up in congressional testimony about winning in Afghanistan or deterring the Chinese in the waters off Taiwan as they were in defense of their recommended lists of Marxist-inspired critical race theory texts!

    If government forces an experimental vaccine on you it's citizen, sure as hell's hot, it will assume it has the obligation to make all your medical decisions.

    We are in troubling times. Look! Marxism has consequences. Do you think that white, working-class, people who literally built this country are just going to lie down? When you essentially blame them for all the ills of the world, there will be a backlash. What that looks like, I can't say. I will say that I'm tired of hearing about how white people are responsible for all the wrongs in this country. It is complete bullshit and anyone with half-a-brain knows that. I hope that everyone, (white or nonwhite) is making preparations. It will become interesting.
    In the future there will be robots.

    The "backlash" is going to be felt on election day, the far left radicals tipped their own canoe over, even with Big Tech, Mass Media, and Deep State, election fraud, all pulling together for Democratic Marxism only alienated the entire voter base, we're on an island, a tsunami is coming, one way or the other, MGTOW is the only high ground, and even then, we need to live high in the trees! Society has gone from cultural tremors to catastrophic earthquakes! The tsunami is on its way!
