Human Sacrifice in the 21st Century- Surprise! Its Us!
I have a lot of reasons for wanting Trump to win the presidency some of them are negative in nature but more of them are positive. One of them is that he promises to protect us from unnecessary sacrifice. Lest you think that I am being overly dramatic or hyperbolic, think about the word sacrifice. When we think of human sacrifice we tend to think of it as a religious practice, something that took place only in the benighted past. It was, we like to believe, a practice born of superstition and ignorance, something we could never countenance today. And yet, we now see human sacrifice on a regular basis in the middle east, in Europe and the US. Surprisingly, I have come to agree with the Obama, Kerry, Clinton unwillingness to call this Islamic terror. Not that I doubt the existence of Islamic terror. Its just that I have come to see that it is really a liberal/progressive plan that encompasses many other kinds of terror- some obvious and some not. I would call it liberal/progressive human sacrifice. What qualifies it as human sacrifice and what is its purpose? Let me explain.
While its true, young Muslim men are often terroristic executioners, there are also thousands of cases of less obvious terror crimes- rapes, violence and murder by illegal immigrants from south and central America. Then there is the incessant black on black murder spree in the desperate inner cities that have been created by decades of “compassionate” Democratic policies and administrations. Add all those victims up and they far outnumber the toll from Islamic terror.
What all these types of killing have in common is that they grow out of the social, economic and political goals of the progressive elites in The West. Its not just that they refuse to act to stop it in any meaningful way. They have a vital interest in perpetuating it. Any real remedy would require that they publicly admit that their entire political project is nonsense and they are worse than worthless- they are a cancer on society.
They are The Entitled Elite.
The Entitled Elite includes:
What they all have in common is that they are paid on the basis of who they know, their legal status and their public persona and that the money to pay them comes at the expense of those of us who work, serve, produce and develop. They are dependent on image, luck, and maintaining their public persona in a way that the non-elite cannot imagine. What The Elite fears most is that the rest of us will see through their insular, naive and dangerous utopian narrative and recognize the naked greed and ambition they conceal beneath it.
Oh yes, greed! They love to accuse Trump of it but while he produces value and jobs for others to earn his wealth, they are simply selling influence and “feelings” for it and it is their own worst vice. They suck at the public teat and sneer at the wage earners and entrepreneurs who they feed off.
The Clintons, for example, they have stored up Hundreds of millions of dollars in their foundation to pay for their travel and expenses and to keep their legion of elitist courtiers employed. They parlay thirty minute speeches full of treacle and rotten promises for hundreds of thousands of dollars and expect everyone to believe that there is no quid pro quo involved. To justify all this greed they publicly profess belief in a pathetically naive and self-serving set of political ideas that have been proven to be poisonous and destructive where ever tried.
They pretend that they believe that human aggression and raw evil can be argued or shamed or appeased out of existence. They want us to believe the fiction that every person in every culture around the world just wants to be like us. They believe not is equality of opportunity but in the equality of results. They want the redistribution of wealth - as long as they are the ones who get to decide how it get redistributed. The lynchpin of the narrative is that they are the ones who know enough and feel enough and see the future clearly enough to make all those decisions for all people, that they, the progressive Entitled Elite, can lead us all to a finer and more equitable world.
They don’t solve problems because the real solutions do not fit the liberal/progressive narrative. How many times has Obama and his spokespeople tried to cloak the killing of innocent American citizens in the camouflage of “work place violence”, “lone wolf attacks”, gun violence and (the mother of all euphemisms!) “man-caused disaster”. According to their “narrative”, Putin, the Mullahs of Iran and the savages of ISIS do not even belong to our “21st century” the murderous toll in black neighborhoods of Chicago, Baltimore and Detroit are “gun violence” and the unchecked, unvetted waves of illegal immigration are all “dreamers” and future “valedictorians”.
Our elitist leaders have lately taken to informing us that we must “expect” the acts of those young men as a part of our “normal” life going forward. The (Muslim) mayor of London, our own feckless Secretary of State John Kerry and many others have said exactly the same in recent months. At home and abroad, we are expected to pay no attention to the deadly results of their futile attempts to force the world into the utopia that even they don’t really believe in. The forgetting and ignorance they try to force on us is monumental. Hillary Clinton has even told a congressional panel in essence to forget inquiring about the responsibility for the sacrifice of our ambassador and three other brave Americans in Benghazi asking “What difference does it make now anyway?”
Anyone who tries to reveal the truth or to suggest the otherwise obvious remedies for the situation are squelched. Destroy the base of the world-wide jihad network with a direct and all out military effort? Surveil proven incubators of jihadist activity in our own country? At the very least can we agree that there really IS a profile of the most obvious perpetrators of jihadi violence and watch them more closely? Or how about simply monitoring the travel of refugees and asylum seekers and if one of them travels back to the place from which he allegedly fled and it is a known terror locale, revoke his travel documents and do not allow him back into the US. Any one of these measures would have saved more American lives than “gun control”. But no, Obama turns up his nose, thrusts forward his haughty chin and proclaims, “That is not who we are”.
“Not who we are” is his way of drawing our attention away from the ugly reality he has created. It is emotional blackmail. It is the domestic analog of Obama and Kerry trying to invalidate the existence of Putin and, the mullahs and ISIS by labeling them “not of the 21st century”. Last time I looked, they are all still there…
For many of us who are not in the elite, it IS who we are. Taking reasonable and rational steps to recognize and combat a threat to the lives and freedom of our citizens used to be exactly who America was and we need to return there as soon as possible.
Obama, Kerry and Clinton don’t fear random violence. They live behind big fences and have constant armed security around them.
They shame the use of words like “Islamic Terror”, “rapist” “Thug”, “Crazy” and “Illegal Alien" with accusations of “racism” and “islamophobia” and xenophobia. They do this because those are the very words we need to use in order to understand the danger they have engineered. It is, again, emotional blackmail. They do it to lull us into believing that “it will not be me, today, who will die for their mad pursuit of utopia” - to keep us sufficiently anesthetized and repressed that we don’t rise up, name it and try to reverse it.
It is a modern reprise of Shirley Jackson’s nightmarish and brilliant short story, The Lottery. The Lottery is a tale of a congenial-seeming, mid-twentieth century “American” village in which the villagers gather every year to participate in a lottery in which one innocents villager is chosen by lot to be stoned to death. They do this in the belief that the lottery in some way gives stability to their lives and fosters economic security. The difference now between this fiction and our reality is that “Mr Stevens”, the person who ran the lottery took part in the risk of lottery himself and was not the exclusive economic beneficiary. He was exposed to the jeopardy along with the rest and got no extra pay or security. Obama, Kerry, and Clinton want the rest of us to give up our arms, take down our fences, open our borders, forget the serial terror, ignore the blood of our neighbors and accept the chance that we will be next- as a normal part of life; while they go on amassing huge personal fortunes, selling out the interests of the people who actually make and do things of value, and wielding power that is less and less fettered by constitutional limits.
They are like monsters of some ancient myth who mesmerize their victims with tales of utopia and paradise of socialist security even while they are feeding off our labor and good will. Our aspirations for a better life for our children are being squelched and our fears and concerns are invalidated.
Mrs Clinton famously asked, “What difference does it make?” When Trey Gowdy honed in on her lies about her responsibility for the deaths of four of her employees. As she now grasps for absolute hold on the apparatus of government, we must understand her question as more emotional blackmail. The elite have already assaulted the property and lives of conservatives with the IRS. Like all other dishonest and mistaken leaders in human history, when they can, they will not just ignore anything that that proves them wrong they will crush it or kill it- with a vengeance.
Here is the difference it makes, Madam Secretary:
It used to be that the lives of American citizens could not be bartered for gold or political power. You have changed that and this is a very big difference indeed. You lied about Benghazi precisely to help your progressive president fend off Mitt Romney and Romney lacked the courage to expose you and stand up for us. Donald Trump is calling you on it and that is why I am for him. Not just because he is against you but because he seems to know what makes a difference!
So convinced are they of their own worth and the depravity of anyone who disagrees with them, they will stop at nothing. Just look at the attacks they have launched at Trump and his supporters: “Deplorable”, “mentally deficient”, “reckless”, “immature”, “indecent” and “violent”. Yet it is the supporters of the Democrats who have firebombed the North Carolina headquarters of of the Trump campaign.
No less a fraud than Elizabeth Warren, who at least three times on official student and employment application documents fraudulently claimed to be a Native American in order to gain entry to the elite and enhance her career, last week publicly accused Trump of advocating the assassination of Hillary Clinton. Trump, for all his human faults, is not that kind of a monster, only people so impressed with their own infallibility and worth could be so ruthless. I vote for Trump because he is our only hope to stem the bloody tide of sacrifice.
