Pattern Match

2020 July 15
by drdog09

Confused? We have BLM accosting cops. We have the Woke targeting Liberals. There are elements that put politely are serial fire bombers. We have the Left targeting the Right and ‘Orange Man Bad’. Quite a mix. Might lead one to believe the wheels are coming off.

Dissection

What if I told you there is actually a pattern emerging that makes a slight sense of all this? Ready? But first we need to lay an old one to rest. The Left – Right divide. Sounds like that is what is in play but it is minor. Sure the MSM is using it as it is tried and true. And yes, there are small pockets, like the Never Trumpers. But these are background noise to the bigger picture.

What we have here is a revolt between Modernists and Post Modernists. The Modernists dating all the way back to the founding of the USA. That group compromises traditional liberals and the conservatives. They are defined by a belief in evidincary knowledge based on cause and effect of the observed world. The Post Modernists are compromised of a group of individuals that are railing against hierarchical structures being the basis of oppression. Govt is oppressive. Science is oppressive. Patriarchy is oppressive. On and on. Their core tenet is that power or the search for power which under pins the Modernists traditions is the sole drive for any decision and must be opposed.

  • George Floyd. Oppressed because he was black.
  • BLM tearing down statutes are symbols of oppression.
  • Burning businesses too represent a revolt against oppressive capitalism.
  • 1619 Project. America’s creation was oppressive.

Not a single one of these events are comparable unless you accept the idea that each is related to Post Modernist ethos.

Who Loses?

Well naturally the conservative Right. But not as deeply as one might suspect since the Right has been in the cross-hairs for decades. No, most that damage has been done and as things spiral out of control more of the Center will move Right.

The bigger loser is the traditional Left. You can see it happening before your eyes. Bari Weiss leaves NYT. The Mayor of Seattle brow beaten and reacted with force only when it came to her door. The mayor of Minneapolis beaten into submission by the burning mob. College professors forced to resign or submit. The Democratic leadership in Congress bending a knee.

There was a young lady of Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger;
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside,
And the smile on the face of the tiger.

The Trad Left presumably is assuming a couple of thoughts. They can ride this out presuming it will burn it self out in due time. Or they can subsume the Post Modernists to their own ends. Neither I believe are possible. Their acquiescence only emboldens the Post Modernists. But what will be left is a vast swath of carnage of the Left as they are the easier target than the Right.

Conclusion

The Post Modernists are for the most part irrational to but their dogma of power defines all. The end result is a rise in tribalism rather nation state cohesion. You see that too. Color only graduation and dorms. Color only meetings and in some cases town halls. This is the divide that is occurring right now, not the Left – Right paradigm of old.

Keep it in mind when Hannity tries to make the same old tired pitch he has done for more than a decade.

    Trump needs to call out the media for what it covers up (police officers, the 24-year old Indianapolis mom, etc.).

    “The Mayor of Seattle brow beaten and reacted with force only when it came to her door. ”

    And even then, there are rumors that the Mayor only took action when told the Pres was about to send in the Federales.

    I think the theme of this post is accurate. AOC and her followers are the Dem Party, not MaligNancy and her followers. How is that possible? I shake my head. These folks are loons, how it is possible that “normal” Dems don’t stand up and fight? Or, at least #WalkAway

    Even higher than the founder of BET’s demand of $14 trillion. which worked out to $341,463 for every black man, woman and child in the US (based on 41-million blacks).

    If the market makes a significant run up prior to the election the investors think trump will be the winner. The vice versa should also be true. No on wants to be left holding the bag. The greater fool theory will be writ large. Beware the tulip mania.

    Eph, if pollsters REALLY want to know the true state of the election they would ask this question:

    Who is your next door neighbor supporting??

    Millions of people will NOT publicly support Trump…and in fact a lot of them will say they are going to vote for Biden just to appear “Woke”. But they know who their neighbor supports! 🙂

    RIP, always enjoyed myth-busters show, one of the few shows that kept politics mostly out of the show.

    16 – Let’s be real all that shows is they’re literally making this shit up as they go along polling wise, nobody moves 7 points in a week without something cataclysmic happening and nothing has in the last week – at least not that’s actually got penetration. Can’t sell polls and up fees for airtime if things aren’t considered relatively close. BTW some other bs msm poll had the gap widening at the same time. King need not be worried yet.

    In other news D’s now have team of 100 scumbag lawyers, targeting to grow to 1000+, already working in states to advance voting fraud and screw with ballot counting, and be available to demand recounts.

    “I am doubling all payments sent to my BTC address for the next 30 minutes,” said the scam messages. “You send $1,000, I send you back $2,000.”

    More duplicate counting in OH, test positive on monday you get counted as covid positive, get tested again on Wednesday and still test positive you get counted again as a new case, still testing positive on friday… well you guessed it your now another new case added to the scare. I get that fkups are going to happen, but in one cases they counted the same person 15 fking time, that’s not a fkup, that’s deliberate or a completely broken (on purpose or not) reporting system.

    As seen on the Internet —

    I’m sure these New York politicians like AOC will celebrate that their Bolshevik policies continue to chase out productive people and businesses.

    But it just so happens that the richest 5% of New York City’s population pays over 60% of income taxes in the city. Just one of these high earning New Yorkers paid about as much taxes as 196 median-earning New Yorkers… and thousands of lower-income residents.

    So, go figure, these politicians seem completely clueless that they’re chasing away more than half of their tax base. It’s another victory for American Marxism!

    It’s not just the richest New Yorkers. I have read a number of articles where younger New Yorkers who have been “furloughed” or are working remotely from their parents’ home in No Place, Kansas are questioning if they want to return to New York City with its sky high costs, dirty streets and subways and high crime.

    https://nypost.com/2020/04/29/these-new-yorkers-fleeing-coronavirus-vow-theyll-never-return/

    55 – More than a 3rd will vote for him anyway even even if that was all D’s polled which I doubt. Remember back when mr. policy guy Ryan was gonna smoke joe in the VP debates and instead just got walked over half cause of Ryan and half cause of press\moderator… good times. /not Look Bidens out to lunch, but you know what Trump rambles like a mofo too, more coherently of course, but that will not be how it will be played. This assumes biden actually debates, which idk, i don’t think he has too, and part of me thinks he’ll find an excuse not too. COVID in the fall cancels in-person debate, joe says will do some remote-tele-debate, trump says real thing or nothing – you heard it here first.

    52 – first it was the lunatic students saying that, now the coaches want in on it, no surprise, since their source of revenue is athletes and they could care less about the students academic performance so long as they’re bringing in the dough for the coach. Didn’t college basket ball basically become the NBA minor leagues anyway due to this like 2+ decades ago? Hell wasn’t that what creepy porn lawyer was trying to blackmail nike over to some extent? 😉 Funny how the nuts and bolts of that part of the M A “matter” got quickly wiped from the media.
