Historians of the future will have a hard time figuring out how so many organized groups of strident jackasses succeeded in leading us around by the nose and morally intimidating the majority into silence.”
Thomas Sowell

Except...no one is silent. They’re tripping over each other proclaiming America a racist country. And not because one George Floyd and19 violent, black criminals died (in 2019) at the hands of white-supremacists, the men in blue, who killed many more whites that year. And not because the mainstream media, social media, Hollywood, sports figures, kneeling congress Democrats, Biden, and every corporation touting the popular idea tells us so every hour on the hour.

Yes, there is racism in America. That is not the same as calling America a racist country. America is a racist country because the Black Lives Matter movement, not only exists, but has managed to amass millions in funding, position itself on everyone’s lips, streets, in corporate offices and policies for hiring, and infiltrate the psyche of every uninformed millennial and intimidated passerby.

Just what does BLM and its supporting base of liberals know about institutional American racism towards blacks that we don’t?

What really goes on in the "systemically racist" America and why do all Americans need to kneel and repent for their collective sin? And why does every individual and organization need to plaster a large black square in support of ending this horrendous record of discrimination towards African Americans?

Now, wouldn't every country and every minority welcome this?

Imagine re-reading all of the aforementioned while subbing the word “white” for “black” each time.

The pageantry of BLM virtue-signalling by useful idiots should be over. It’s run its course. And not because of BLM’s official, loud and proud Jew-hatred, calls for killing of police officers and horrifying violence on American streets, actual murder of police officers and over 350 injured, looting of businesses, intimidation of society at large and continuous killing of their other blacks. It’s over because the game of pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes is over.

Fabricated racism, the priceless possession of today’s liberal, exists to seed outrage, division and dissatisfaction for the purpose of one and only intended goal - the anti-Trump vote at the ballot box. They know that grandpa Biden needs all the help he can get.

The BLM enthusiasts care nothing for months-long Covid-spreading by their rioters , their country’s actual track record, their fellow Americans, their safety, livelihood and well-being. And absolutely nothing for black lives or anyone’s lives. They’ve turned 2020 into the Year of The Empowered Criminal while granting BLM’s platform of tyrannical Marxism and rabid antsemitism exclusive moral authority, unequivocal legitimacy and very sharp teeth.

These enthusiasts were able to achieve a huge cultural shift by their relentless physical and emotional intimidation of society. Monument toppling was a mere test run for their Stalinist-inspired reputation and career toppling. Fear-based subjugation of politicians, journalists, editors, schools, businesses and general populace into BLM groupthink requiring total devotion to the cause is now complete.

The palpable danger of job/income loss and public lynching for the crime of non-compliant heresy on social media or in “polite company”, is breeding a society of obedient sheep intent on preserving their own paycheck and survival, to hell with facts, truth and morality. History repeating for the umpteenth time.

To wonder how a mere 15% of official Nazis could enlist the other 85% of German populace into the holy grail of complete continental dominance and an obliteration of an entire race is to exhibit cluelessness about human nature and the ultimate power of fear.

We are the implicitly consenting participants in this apocalyptic cultural destruction by liberal kneelers and their first-prize-for-victimhood holders. Our freedom of choice and moral compass have been highjacked; our minds manipulated to give power to illusions.

And we know it. And that means all of us - white and black.
