There is a certain type of older American conservative who still believes that the West are the “good guys” are Russia and China are the “bad guys” and that we should support NATO to defend “Liberal Democracy.” They agree with the Left that “Liberal Democracy” ought to be extended around the world.
“Think about what typically happens in a military operation and then look what the woke left has done here. It’s seized control of our television and radio stations to such an extent that last week Sophie Raworth said, on the BBC News at Six, with a straight face, “And over now to our LGBT and diversity correspondent …”
And TV drama? Unaffected? Right, and when was the last time you saw a fictional police force hunting a gang of Muslim extremists? It’s always the far right. And it’s the same story in comedy. Say anything you like about Boris or Rishi and the laughter track is turned up to 11. Make a joke about she/him pronouns or Greta Thunberg and they’ll blow a piece of tumbleweed across the stage.
In sport we sometimes have three women doing the punditry at a men’s football match, and if anyone remarks on this on Twitter, they are immediately singled out for the india-rubber treatment. And who’s doing the erasing? Who’s making the rules? That’s just it. We don’t have a clue. What we do know is that, having taken control of the television stations, without a shot being fired, they turned their attention, like any conquering army, to the schools. Here they went fully Pol Pot, doing a comprehensive year-zero job on the curriculum so that kids would know their parents were all racists. Apart from those with “unconscious bias”. Who were racists as well.
You probably think, because you don’t know this war is going on, that when you drop little Johnny off at the school gates he’s going to learn the nine times table that day. No, he isn’t. He’s learning that he might actually be a girl, which is why there are probably tampon dispensers in the boys’ lavatories. …”
My view is that NATO should be dissolved because this system isn’t worth defending anymore. White men should turn their backs on it and stop subsidizing it with our taxes.
Meanwhile, over in the despotism that is modern day Germany …
“Five Germans have been charged with treason over an alleged far-right plot to overthrow the government that included plans to abduct the health minister, prosecutors have announced.
The four men and a woman were arrested in recent months over the plot, with the health minister, Karl Lauterbach – unpopular among far-right groups because of anti-Covid measures – confirming he was targeted.
They were charged on 16 January and face counts ranging from founding a domestic terrorist group to preparing a treasonous act and violating weapons laws, the federal prosecutor’s office said on Monday.
The group aimed to “trigger civil war-like conditions in Germany by means of violence … to cause the overthrow of the government and parliamentary democracy”, the prosecutors said in a statement.
The suspects accepted that deaths could result from the attempted overthrow, the statement added.
It said the group’s ideology was “shaped” by the woman charged – identified only as Elisabeth R – and was centred on the belief that the modern German state was not legitimate. …”
I can’t imagine why the German government is so unpopular with the “far right.” Could it be because the status quo is indistinguishable from tyranny for that swath of the population?
Note: I’m not romanticizing Russia which has its own vast problems. I just can’t fathom why anyone with our views would be willing to defend the current system in the West.
