It is hard to overstate the case of the demonization of Americans by the Democrat party the Left, and our media outlets. Hillary Clinton, when running for office, channelled the values of her peers; it rolled off her tongue, in public, so calmly, so matter-of-factly, and so simply:
“You know, just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable. But thankfully they are not America”
Elites (like Hillary) truly consider themselves better, smarter, and more intelligent that the rest of us. They are so influential that 99% of Americans would agree that it is wrong to be all the things she defines as un-American and deplorable:
To be called one of those things is an act of dehumanization — none of the protections of the Constitution apply to you. You are illegitimate and therefor outside any protection from harm. Youcan be fired or jailed for committing thought crimes . “Hate crimes” are thought crimes. Kill a man for his shoes and it’s just murder; kill him and utter a forbidden word while you kill him (and then take his shoes) — that’s a thought crime and unforgivable.
I have yet to speak to an educated professional who has the ability to tell me what racism means in a precise way. When they try, it is so broad and unformed that you could drive a truck through the definition. Anything and everything the Left (the Democrat party) renounces today is defined, not with clarity, but with rhetoric: “That’s racist!” It is applied Christmas, music, White people, policies on border control, policies on welfare, policies on drugs and the police and medical insurance and the words we use in daily life. Their modus operandi is to name and shame ideas unacceptable to them — they want nothing to do with a quiet and logical debate.
It’s much easier to shut down any opposition by saying “That’s racist!” It by-passes the brain and captures the guilt and morality strings of unthinking Americans.
Term like racist is used to suppress thoughts and ideas. This is a very effective form on tyranny — it is embraced willingly out of a desire to be acceptable.
The only people who can free you from this tyranny is yourself. You must decided that you will not be manipulated and deceived into conforming to a narrative that you have no control over and that you don’t really even understand (because why would they explain it to you? That may undermine their control.)
The term “racist” is not a legitimate term. It is a rhetorical lever designed to avoid hard definition and yet impose guilt upon someone along with a righteous demand for behaviour, speech, and thought modification all without any rational discussion; because to have that discussion (for them) is “proof” that you are “racist.”
So you can’t win. You can never win by saying “I’m not a racist because. . . .”
You can never win by saying “I’m not homophobic because . . . .”
Nor “I’m not xenophobic because. . . “
Until we completely reject that narrative, we remain intellectual slaves to their world view.
First, get it through your own head that these are tools to deceive you, control you, manipulate you and coerce you. They have you jumping through hoops that don’t even exist. You are a fool for playing their game. Reject the idea that the term “racist” is a valid construct.
Who is Hillary Clinton (or your college professor) to impose their narrow minded morality on you? They were the very generation that rejected any moral guidance whatsoever, and yet they are so quick to impose a rigid totalitarian order of thought upon on the entire world.
When was the last time you read any of Moses writings? Did you read anything were folks are damned for rejecting homosexuality? Or condemned for rejoicing in their own kin and clan? Or rejected for embracing Patriarchy? It’s not there — you won’t find it.
Because we have exchanging the writings of Moses for the writings of atheists, we are pummeled and cudgeled by a more brutal and false morality. You think you are free but you are much more of a slave.
Lesson Two: No one comes up with a “logical” morality. That’s been tried. And it gets torn down by the next generation of thinkers and writers. Thinkers write. And writers think. If a man does not write, he has no thoughts — he is at best a reflector of the thoughts of others.
The majority wander through life as sponges soaking up the ideas of others. And those alleged “free-thinkers” who reject Christian morality haven’t rejected the concept of morality at all (if they did, they wouldn’t waste their time cursing “racists” etc.). They have simply acquired another set of moralities imposed upon them. Without being equipped to intellectually deconstruct these new ideas, they simply adjust their own morality and ideas in order to become acceptable by the hegemonic powers in the university. They never had an intellectual foundation for what they took into college in the first place, so, they just acquire whatever is being passed out in there. I mean, what college freshman wants to be a “racist” or “intolerant?”
Have you ever, in your life, had a university professor de-construct the narrative of the Left? Have they truly challenged you to question the power of the rhetorical tools used to manipulate you? (Thou shalt not be racist!). Who has looked critically at this from within the Academy? No one to my knowledge; because to question is to be a heretic and to be a heretic is to be a supporter of all that is evil in the world (racism, etc.) and thou shalt surely be excommunicated from the one establishment of Religion the western world has embraced (the University and the worldview they impose). And if you are excommunicated you will never rise to a position of power or influence in this post-Christian world.
Never think for a minute that your university is fundamentally an institution of higher learning; it is first and foremost a religious institution protecting its own rights and power and privileges and orthodoxies. It will destroy anyone who questions their beliefs and is exceedingly thorough in rooting out heresy at both the undergraduate and graduate level. You will never be a university professor if you fundamentally challenge the religion of the Academy.
Reject the imposition of the University’s morality.
Dare to be think for yourself and be no man’s slave.
Don’t settle for the forgeries and lies imposed upon you by your Professors (who profess). If you want to know “what is Truth,” as Pilate did, soak your mind in Genesis and Exodus, the Psalms and Proverbs and the Gospels, too.
Why are the universities so afraid of that Word? Because they know it will change people and then they will lose control.
