“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.” -Abraham Lincoln
What we are seeing in the recent protests are children that have been influenced by a liberal academia, which is a product of the hard-core radicalism of 1960’s. Ever since the 1970’s, when these radicals became professors, our universities have produced generations of graduates that are terminally callow, self-centered and petulant. Exhibit number one resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and as such, we have just endured this same sophomoric, selfish attitude for the last 8 years. Hopefully, we are now transitioning to a sober realism that will restore some of the values and ideals of more mature generations and of our founding fathers.
“The premise of the founders that the voters would be able to see through nonsense has been trumped because nonsense has become a large part of the curriculum of our educational institutions.” - Thomas Sowell (paraphrased)
So, the recent protesters really are not a new phenomenon. They have become an overt manifestation of years of simmering nonsense and indoctrination. These youngsters are literally the offspring of several generations of covert ‘educated elite’ protesters from the 70’s and 80’s, who have been quietly spoon-feeding their students the same liberal mantras that were spewed on the steps of Berkeley and Harvard in the 60’s.
“The number one problem of the ‘educated elite’ is that they acquired mostly unnecessary information, but not what was required to become a mature rational adult.” -Bob Earl
Consequently, that is why there are protesters in the streets. They are incensed because mature rational adults got off their collective couches and went to the polls. Those mature adults proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that common sense is not dead, as has been reported by various outlets in the last year. Simple ideas such as…you can’t spend more than you make; illegal means precisely that; one does not normally invite the enemy to live with them. You get the picture.
"Some ideas are so stupid only intellectuals believe them."-George Orwell
As a result, the very fact that an openly racist organization could flourish in today’s society is testament to the hypocrisy of liberal indoctrination. But enough about the Black Congressional Caucus, let’s talk about Black Lives Matter. For this President to give them credibility by inviting them to the White House, not to mention embolden them in their open hatred and homicidal ranting against police and white Americans is unconscionable. This ad hoc endorsement of hatred, racism, rioting and violence is what we are seeing in the streets today.
These protests are not really a 100% ‘organic’ or spontaneous as the press would have you believe. A percentage may be naive young college kids participating out of self-righteousness and youthful passion, but the shills of nefarious financiers, such as Soros, are the real instigators.
Fortunately for America, with this election, the last vestige of the Greatest Generation rose up and made the voice of sanity heard.
Therefore, for those of us who served and who were prodigy of the Greatest Generation; for those men and women who wanted to serve but were denied; for those who benefited from the fruits of the freedoms this great country provided; for those whose loved ones made the ultimate sacrifice; patriotism is not a punch line but a sacred reverence for honor and duty. It is a core value that will not produce a new paradigm, but reaffirm the Founding Father’s vision.
The freedom to protest is not what makes America great. It is strength of character in the American people that makes America great…and will again.
