Don’t Fool Yourself – The Left is Still Winning
Within the next month, I will be releasing my second book: The Coming Civil War. Over 384 pages, I lay out the contradictions at the heart of our republic that are driving the culture war as it burns from cold to hot, identify the major players, and assign which groups will gather to each side. Six different scenarios are profiled therein, but to explain why such an event gains in likelihood each day, I write today to share with you the crisis. In writing this book, I’ve come to realize just how dominant the Left has become, and my hope is after reading the below, you will also and will act with the urgency such understanding requires.
Since gaining control of the American education system, the forces of the Marxist Left have been following a recurring pattern of introducing reforms, weathering a period of conservative response, and then building upon the new cultural framework. This generational approach to victory has been devastatingly effective and the bedrock upon how they have built their radically transformed country which we now inhabit today.
Consider the efforts by FDR to establish social welfare as an expectation for all Americans. The very idea of socialism itself came under both national and international assault in the 40’s and seemed to fade away in the happy 50’s, but had become irrevocably part of our national expectation by the 60’s.
Consider the efforts by LBJ to realize the cultural revolution ideas of minority power, feminism, and war without sanction. Resistance floated through the 70’s where a counter-revolution seemed to happen in the 80’s proved illusory by the 90’s. All the social ethics of the 60’s were essentially adopted and accepted, leading today’s politically correct culture to rise.
Consider the efforts by Obama, which built upon the strong foundation left by LBJ as a multi-generational project, to remake the country by changing our demographics. What the 1965 Hart-Celler Act began by opening America up to Third World immigration, chain migration, and a lottery system for who would be admitted, has been amplified through successive amnesties from Republicans and Democrats alike. Obama’s open borders and refugee policies only made more blatant what the American government, in service to the Marxist Left, has been doing for a very long time which is seeding new people in the deliberate intent to outvote people who believe in traditional limited government, liberty, and national sovereignty.
Trump’s election was driven, in no small part, to reverse both these cultural trends and to stop the flow of immigration into America. But as history shows, even a successful presidency has only served to slow the implementation of what the Left intends, leading to the acceptance of their basic action following the countervailing administration and a steady march leftward for the United States. While embracing social welfare and the cultural revolution were bad enough, those could be undone with policy and determination. The transformation of America, as we see happening already in Europe, through shifting demographics is end game for the Left.
