The alarm bell tolls for thee!
The Great Awakening of America in the 1830s was a moral crusade that led to the Emancipation Proclamation. It was “inspired … by concepts of human betterment under God’s grace and His gift of free will. Out of this fresh religious doctrine … grew a movement that included the plea for the freedom of all of God’s human creatures, especially the Southern slaves.” (Source here.)
The question before the peanut gallery today is how many Woke progressives are now sleepless from Seattle to Rhode Island after the fire bell sounded in the night of Tuesday 2 November 2021.
The New York Times — of all people (corporations ARE people) — is sitting bolt upright, as if from a dream “no mortals ever dared to dream before.” The newspaper that pumped the nightmare “1619 Project” into school classrooms across America — has it been awakened? (Perhaps it was a morsel of undigested beef. Roast beef being a favorite of the white race.)
“Democrats lost Virginia … because the party has become distracted from crucial issues like the economy, inflation … and restoring normalcy in schools.”
Tuesday’s results are a sign that significant parts of the electorate are feeling leery of a sharp leftward push in the party.
Never mind that the NY Times helped pushed that party onto the subway train tracks. Their columnist, David Brooks is smelling the coffee in language the Woke elitists might understand: “Democrats need to curb their privilege … especially on the cultural front.” Brooks correctly identified the critical race theory project as being:
That a person’s identity is predominantly about group identity and that slavery is the defining fact of American history. … When Democrats seem to be magnifying the education establishment’s control of the classroom and minimizing the role of parents, there’s going to be a reaction. You can’t win a culture war by raising the minimum wage.”
“Democrats need to go into Woke detox.” — James Carville.
Not that the AOC/Mark Pocan/Joy Reid Left will ever get it. “White racial anxiety strikes again,” NY Times columnist Charles Blow bloviated. Like the werewolf of New York, the Times’ Paul Krugman howls in the graveyard: Glenn Youngkin’s victory in Virginia, he writes, was “a dog whistle wrapped in a scam.”
When the Left cannot persuade, it intimidates. Earlier Friday 5 November 21, social justice warriors harassed Joe Manchin in a DC parking garage. THAT will convince him and win soccer moms everywhere! Anyone watch Doctor Zhivago?
Blaska’s Bottom Line: It could get ugly, especially when Kyle Rittenhouse is freed and Build Back Better gets battered. Tick, tick, tick …
