America’s cities are aflame, in a more ghoulish, pointless reenactment of the upheavals of 1968. The organizations behind various protest movements and rioting all parrot the same meaningless platitudes: “Black Lives Matter,” “Abolish the Suburbs,” “Wake Up Motherf**kers, Wake Up,” etc. There even seems to be an attempt to normalize pedophilia—the logical, horrifying next step for the LGBTQ2A+ set.
Despite Republicans enjoying official political control of the presidency and the Senate, the Left clearly dominates the culture, the media, academia, Big Tech, and more. The question is, how much of this dominance was deliberately orchestrated, and how much of it is the result of various organic left-wing movements?
Most conservatives are familiar with the radical Left’s “long march through the institutions,” in which ’60s radicals and former hippies gained cushy sinecures in government and academia, and began dribbling their Marxist dogma into the political and cultural thought of the country. The anti-war movement and the sense of restlessness among post-war youths offered fertile ground for anti-American ideas, especially when swaddled in terms of “peace” and “love.”
But how much of that was intentional, and how much of it the result of happenstance? Perhaps an answer rests with a Jeff Bezos-funded, ten-thousand year clock hidden in a Texas mountain.
H/T to photog at Orion’s Cold Fire and Z Man for the idea for this week’s post.
