Michael Anton: Blue America’s Messaging Problem

Michael Anton has a good new article this morning.

As a close observer, I have come up with a short list of qualities that I associate with the coastal shitlibs or PMCs who run the Democratic Party who I read, watch and study on a daily basis:

  • Sanctimony
  • Hypocrisy
  • Self-righteousness
  • Self-absorption
  • Ruthlessness
  • Hysteria

Read Dana Milbank’s latest columns like when he recently accused the press of being “accessories to the murder of democracy.” This is where the herd of establishment liberals have gone in January.

This is what comes across to me as the essence of their messaging. See, for example, the ongoing moral panic over the state of American democracy in which this class of people can’t seem to decide whether the real enemy of “our democracy” is their opposition or the Constitution itself.

American Mind:

“In December 19, 2021—less than a week before Christmas—the Biden White House issued a statement containing the following extraordinary sentence, which astonished even the Administration’s harshest critics and alarmed many inclined to give it the benefit of the doubt:

For the unvaccinated, you’re looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families, and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm.

It’s rare to employ this kind of undiplomatic language even against America’s global adversaries. Against American citizens? Hence so many shocked and angry responses.

But few should have been surprised. Blue rhetoric toward Red America—unquestionably the target of the above outburst—has been unrelentingly punitive since at least 2015, and increasingly so in recent months. As one illustration, when offered the opportunity to “walk back” the above statement, the White House doubled down, and its media allies followed suit. Clearly, they’re committed to this kind of talk. To what end, we shall see below. …”

They are people who are used to barking orders and bossing other people around. It pains them that there are constitutional restraints on their power. Nothing pains them more than the disconnect between their relative size in the population and the scope of their ambitions.

If the Constitution was overthrown and they had it their way, one of the first things they would do is criminalize what words their moral inferiors can say. They would criminalize guns. They would dictate to people what they can drive, how they can live and what they can eat. They are busybodies who would report their neighbors and relatives to the FBI for “domestic extremism.”

  1. Their problem is not messaging, it’s rather that they are satanic, evil, and stupid, and live amongst people who do not want them to lead.

  2. HW, I’ll go out on a limb, and ask honestly: If the following is true, what would YOU (as a Christian) do?

    “The Law-Order of humanism leads only to anarchy. Lacking absolutes, a humanistic law-order tolerates everything which denies absolutes while warring against biblical faith.” North, Political Polytheism, p. 691.

    As Dr. North’s advanced degrees are in History (same as you) his viewpoint should (one would think) hold more weight than mine, in theology and languages. Here’s his conclusion, from the same Appendix.

    ” The Framers at the Constitutional Convention issued a death warrant against Christianity….the death sentence was officially delivered by the Fourteenth Amendment. It has been carried out with escalating enthusiasm since the 1950’s…To admit the historical truth of 1787-89 would mean that a restoration of so-called “original American Constitutionalism” would change nothing covenantally. The nation would still rest judicially on an APOSTATE COVENANT. [Why?] The text [of the Constitution] categorically prohibits the imposition of the biblical covenant oath in civil law.Let us put it covenantally: what the text of the U.S. Constitution prohibits is covenantal Christianity…. this worldwide legal transformation is the crisis of Western Civilization…” pp. 691-92,94.

    So, I’m fast coming to the conclusion that it is the denial of the States’ Trinitarian Oaths, via their suppression by the ILLEGAL Constitutional Convention, back in the day, that nullifies ANY further allegiance to this accursed, and Damned nation, as it ‘works out it’s damnation with NO fear and trembling.’

    And you? Is ‘This most certainly true?’…. or not? [ ‘And they answered him not a word’- I Ki. 18:21]

  3. Yes, hypocrisy is one of their most obvious qualities, living in luxury in mansions in gated communities while they claim to care about the safety and well-being of common people. Not like real Ethno-socialist Moammar Gadaffi who always iived in a tent because he said he could never live in a house until every other Libyan had a roof over their head.

    • “until every other Libyan had a roof”:

      I meant: until every Libyan (besides himself) had a house or apartment, instead of a nomad tent.
