There are certain political boogieman for each party…
For the Right, it’s ANTIFA and the Deep State. These two entities have been a thorn in the side of Conservatism and American exceptionalism at every turn, and the Right blames them for a variety of things going wrong.
For the Left, it’s QAnon and “White supremacy,” as they believe that these two entities have more influence on the Right than anything else.
So far, only ONE of these entities, ANTIFA, has actually burned down cities and looted businesses with absolute disregard for law and authorities, and it was allowed and the people protected by the Deep State.
When it comes to Q, let’s be honest: most Conservatives have no idea who or what Q is, let alone have been influenced by it. There may be thousands of followers of this conspiracy quackery, but you’d be hard-pressed to find support within the mainstream Conservative community.
Now, as far as White supremacy goes, I would venture to guess that there are actually a lot LESS White supremacists than there are Q followers.
Institutionalized White supremacy has been educated out of most Americans.
Sure, there are a few holdovers stuck in this archaic way of thinking, but they are a dying breed and have been for a long time. To say that White supremacy is a problem is like saying that polio is a problem…
Sure, it’s still around and rears its ugly head once in a while, but for the most part, it’s all but disappeared for the face of the earth.
The Left Hunts For A Ghost
So, why then has the Left decided that it’s time to tackle this almost non-existent problem?
The vaccine for White supremacy exists, just like the vaccine for polio exists; it’s called education, and we’ve done a LOT to stamp out this ridiculous disease.
Yet, the Left is treating it like there’s an outbreak and we’re on the verge of a pandemic.
No matter what the Left or the mainstream media try to tell you, White supremacy is a relic of the past that will never be the issue that it once was during the 20th Century.
That’s why an order from Lloyd Austin, Biden’s Secretary of Defense, for ALL branches of the military to “stand down” for 60 days so they can address alleged internal threats posed by white supremacy and other forms of extremism within the ranks is so unnecessary.
They’re looking for a ghost that doesn’t exist—or at least doesn’t have enough of a presence to haunt America like it once did.
In fact, what they’re doing is most assuredly going to cause tension among the different races in the ranks. Troops of different races will suddenly be told to be suspicious of those around them based entirely on the color of their skin…and how does that help to strengthen our military?
However, that won’t stop Austin. He’s on a mission to sniff out some white extremists’ radical plot—real or imagined—and he doesn’t care about the damage it’ll do to morale or the reputation of the military.
How Do You Hunt A Non-Existent Ghost?
How do they plan on tackling this all-but-non-existent ghost?
Nobody knows, especially the office of the Secretary of Defense. Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby told reporters, “We don’t know how we’re going to be able to get after this in a meaningful, productive, tangible way and that is why he had this meeting today and that is why he certainly ordered this stand-down. There may be cultural issues we have to deal with here.”
This is nothing more than posturing on the Left.
It’s a way to create an enemy that doesn’t exist and allow for accusations to be thrown without merit based entirely on suspicion.
I know this is hard for the Left to accept, but America isn’t racist. We literally voted for a Black man to be our president. What racist nation would do that?
Unless, of course, we’re starting to be a racist nation against White people. If that is the case, then they’re right. America is slowly but surely becoming a racist nation again.
Maybe Austin should stand down himself and have a good long talk with the man in the mirror…
It seems his real issue may be coming from within.
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
