Elections are beside the point in the racial collectivist identity politics of "Black Lives Matter."
"When you put it terms of 'Black lives matter,' that implies that white lives, and Asian lives, and Eskimo lives, and every other kind of lives don't matter. So we get the feeling that if this is all about some sort of race test that we can't hope to pass to your satisfaction because of who we are, not how we act, then screw you buddy, we're not gonna play that game. So the rest of us get the feeling that if our lives don't matter then why the hell should we care if you think 'black lives matter?' And it's just a little ways from there for the rest of us to conclude that black lives DON'T matter either. . . So if you wanted a slogan that the Klan could understand and use to recruit with, well, brother, that's it. So that slogan is either the worst kind of stupidity or the bastard who thought it up is trying to separate you from your natural allies or get you killed, or both. I can't think of another slogan more calculated to get an American Hitler elected, and I HATE Nazis. . . And I'll tell you something else . . .(W)hen I see these black racists of Farrakhan's bunch talking about wanting a race war I'd say they haven't looked at how the numbers stack up. Because let me tell you something about white folks at their worst. When they get scared that people are trying to kill them just because of who they are, when they get pissed off along racial lines, they don't tear up their own neighborhoods or burn down their own communities like y'all do. They come to the neighborhoods of the people who threaten them and burn THEIR communities down and kill THEM. They have burned down whole CONTINENTS. And if you don't believe me, just ask the Indians." -- Mike Vanderboegh.
I am on record as to my opinions of "Black Lives Matter."
Now comes an analyst who believes that this will bring about electoral defeat for the Dems: "Hillary and the Dems have a #blacklivesmatter problem."
This is perhaps true, but beside the point for those who promote the BLM movement. They are uncaring about short term political consequences, focusing rather on the end game (commies are real good at that). The point is to foment racial war in the streets so as to win in the larger agenda of destroying the social fabric of the country so that people will turn to them out of fear. This was the sum and substance of the manipulation of the street riots in the 60s and 70s. It is also a strategy that fits well into the long-term plans of the Klan and neoNazis.
Why do you think Hitler organized the Brown shirts and sent them out into the streets to do battle with the socialists and communists? To create chaos that would frighten the German people into turning to him. And, oh by the way, it worked. Try to think like your enemy thinks and you'll be a lot less surprised when such things happen. Lifson is analyzing this crap using the old paradigm of "Only Elections Matter." Collectivists of every stripe understand that this is no longer true, that we are moving (indeed, THEY are moving the country) into the heretofore undiscovered country of complete societal breakdown, Balkanization and destruction of the rule of law. It is there, and only there, that their own cannibal proclivities can be sated by the feasting upon the dead corpse of the Founders' Republic and their own enemies bodies.
Spot on for the most part. However, "This was the sum and substance of the manipulation of the street riots in the 60s and 70s."...doesn't ring a bell. Mainly because I'm not sure of what "movements" you are referring to. Back then there was a feeling that you could change government; you could change the machine; you could make the country better for times down the road. There was Goldwater, the bomb, Vietnam, and Dan Rather doing daily body bag counts and lying about the kill ratio of VC to us. That social energy failed for the most part, as we see now. Hunter Thompson has a monolog on F&L in LV about that time being the "high water mark" of his memories for a turbulent time. It is a good description of the ebb that followed the flow.
There is no end game now. Even the intellectually dullest individual understands the debt bomb--they almost tacitly accept it will be their time to die. Even they hate Obama and their ilk, and it's all about self-validation. No black community would embrace this administration--even if they were all given iPhones. It's all about their high bandwidth little world where the numbers of likes or the number of followers on social media are the only things that really matter. They escalate their outrageousness in attempts to increase their social "ranking". In essence, "My Likes Matter" to them.
Arkindole - "My Likes Matter".. that is sooo true for this up coming generation. Well said..Maybe a T-shirt should be made of that motto..
"Black Lives Matter!"
To whom, exactly? Apparently not to the thugs on Chicago's south side, or the Liberal Democrats who turn a blind eye to the carnage they cause. Apparently not to young African American women in New York City who now abort more of their own children than they bring to term. Ever see black drivers ignore the school zone speed limits around a predominately black elementary school? If the lives of your own neighborhood's children aren't important enough for you to slow down to 15MPH for the time it takes to traverse the school zone then black lives don't matter to you!
And if they don't matter to you, to whom do they matter?
