Eye Openings

     Perhaps this Year of Our Lord 2016 will bring us more than just broken New Year’s Resolutions.

     1. Muslims.

     The Swedes are pulling in their “welcome” mat:

     ...after taking in more asylum seekers per capita than any other nation in Europe, Sweden’s welcome mat now lies in tatters. Overwhelmed by the human tide of 2015, the center-left government is deploying extraordinary new border controls and slashing benefits in an unmistakable signal to refugees contemplating the long trek to Sweden in the new year: Stay out.

     “We’re willing to do more than anyone else,” said Swedish Migration Minister Morgan Johansson. “But even we have our limits.”

     Those limits can be readily seen in a tent camp where dozens of migrants are bedding down in the frigid Nordic winter and at the train station where many new arrivals are turned back within minutes of setting foot on Swedish soil.

     If Sweden, that most tolerant of the nations of the Old World – tolerant of everything except individual freedom, that is – can see the writing on the wall, can the rest of Europe be far behind?

     2. “Black Lives Matter”

     Large cities have borne the brunt of this outlaw gang’s depredations. That’s no coincidence, as most of America’s large cities suffer under Democrat administrations. However, the Democrats may have had enough:

     Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel is starting to feel the bite of the political machine he spent decades protecting as more calls come for his resignation. When poverty pimp Al Sharpton calls for you to resign, you know it’s time to leave your vacation in Cuba and handle the powder keg set to explode in your city. Maybe Emanuel could pick up a few pointers from Fidel Castro on how to handle protesters before returning to the Windy City....

     Rahm Emanuel isn’t cutting his vacation short to address the concerns of Chicago citizens. He is returning to Chicago to discipline his army for speaking up against him. Specifically, Al Sharpton. I predict those that have paid patronage to the Chicago machine will get Al Sharpton served on a political platter, the equivalent of finding a horse head in your bed.

     A rift between the Democrat Party and black racialist activists would badly wound Democrats’ electoral prospects in 2016. The Negro vote has been a critical component of the Left’s coalition for four decades at least. Without it, the Democrats’ large deficits among whites and married women would finally outweigh their successes at harnessing identity-group politics.

     3. Black Racists.

     White Americans may have had enough:

     Suspiciously overlooked in the disgusting "Dear white America" was the fact that charges of racism were leveled in the same pages as acknowledgements of black crime. Who would dare mention robbers and then demand indifference to robbery? Who has the audacity to bring up rapists and then pretend that raping is irrelevant? If there's a problem with black crime, then let's deal with the crime before dealing with our disgust for criminals. If there's a problem with character, then let men rise in our estimation before demanding that we re-estimate them. To ask the other way around isn't to ask for peace; essentially, it is a covert declaration of war. It holds forth an olive branch in one hand while hiding a dagger in the other.

     The undeniable gist of the piece in the New York Times was that black people cannot any longer live in black society and are jealous of the stability, success, and harmony of white businesses and neighborhoods. It was a cry for inclusion masked in the unsociable language of the excluded.

     Ann Coulter wrote in Mugged that the acquittal of O.J. Simpson was a turning point for white Americans’ attitudes about race. After a majority-black jury refused to convict Simpson despite overwhelming circumstantial evidence, millions of whites were finally moved to say “Enough. No further consideration on account of race!” That caused black race hustlers to bear down for a Battle-of-the-Bulge-like push. However, if the reactions to that scrofulous letter are any indication, the push has fizzled and the bills are about to come due.

     4. Militant Homosexuals.

     This unmasks the true agenda of the Sodomite Army:

     For over the past decade, [Dr. Paul] Church has expressed concern to his colleagues about [Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s] promotion of homosexual events. He has commented both via email and on the hospital’s internal portal that it is improper to promote lifestyles that are contrary to the goals of the healthcare community, and has been met with allegations that his comments constitute “discrimination and harassment” and are “offensive to BIDMC staff.”

     “The evidence is irrefutable that behaviors common within the homosexual community are unhealthy and high risk for a host of serious medical consequences, including STD’s, HIV and AIDS, anal cancer, hepatitis, parasitic intestinal infections, and psychiatric disorders,” Church wrote on the portal on one occasion....

     In September 2014, a formal investigation was launched against Church, and findings were turned over to a 25-member Medical Executive Committee for consideration. In March, the committee decided to expel Church for his “unsolicited views about homosexuality that were offensive to BIDMC Staff” and for violating the hospital’s discrimination policy.

     I’ve written about the health consequences of homosexual sodomy myself. I’ve made no secret of it – and it never caused me the slightest fear for my occupation, my reputation, or the esteem of my friends and neighbors. Dr. Church has been grievously wronged. Worse, the very people who most need to listen to and act on his message are the ones who’ve wronged him. We should watch – and hope – for a recoil against this odious action.

     5. What Does It All Mean?

     As we can see from the citations above, not only are those groups determined to secure group privileges becoming steadily more demanding and militant; persons outside those groups are becoming more aware of the injustice of what they seek. Even prominent Democrats will occasionally allow that some group is asking for far more than its due.

     The Era of the Group hasn’t ended yet, but there are some hopeful signs, both above and in the day-to-day exchanges of views among ordinary Americans. There’s a sense of resistance rising – of a renewed determination among the law-abiding to assert American principles and demand that they be honored...and when necessary, enforced.

     Is the trend definite and positive? Unclear...but the fog of self-deception normal people have wrapped around themselves about the agendas of activist groups, including the groups mentioned above, might just be lifting. We shall see.

Regarding the possible long-overdue awakening of the public at large to the scurge of "group" politics and the associated "protection racket" it entails: From your lips to God's ears. It would be a badly needed sign that the world isn't just going to go quietly into that night of global tyranny without even the pretense of a fight.

It would be easy to blame the democrats. but the federal government has been out of control ever since the 1990's.

Avraham, the fedgov has been on the rails of these abuses for about 100 years, although with a few breaks OF sanity - it has been many years of "Crazy Train"...we are just to the moment of realizing the increasing speed. It is now time that moral, right thinking, and honorable people form our own group... and set out our own demands, and show the other groups that we have the means and the fortitude to back them up. Time for the steely eyed missle men to stand up and be counted...

People like these in the following videos give me a glimmer of hope.

They are all, at their core, TRUE Americans.

Not one is looking for a handout, expressing an imagined grievance or harboring deep resentment and jealousy.
I'm no big fan of Trump, but people such as these (and us), are whose anger and frustration he's tapped into.
When you get down to it, we're the latter day counterculture.
