Good column by Fred Reed:

====================================================



It’s Gonna Blow: be a Miracle if It Don't
Fred Reed

Hoo-boy. She’s ready to explode, go high order. Smoking ruins, dead bodies, seething hatreds, and a country that can’t be put back together. It may not happen, but she looks ready.

No one is in charge in this collapsing shell game of a country. In Louisville hundreds of armed blacks threaten to “burn the motherf***er down,” meaning Louisville, if they don’t get their way. All cringe before them, with reason. They have guns. Larger numbers marched in Georgia, armed, ready to rock and roll. BLM says it will “go into the suburbs” to get Whitey. Who will stop them? Not the government. It fears them. Weimar Kentucky. An American Freikorps.

America today in video. Scroll down to the New York footage. It’s Planet of the Apes.

Gun sales are way up. A friend in Rhode Island went to a gun shop and found a long line outside. A columnist in Virginia was told that the other stores report long waitlists for prize arms, notably the AR 15. People are afraid, or fed up. They are arming. The spring winds.

There is no leadership, no one in charge. In Trump we have perhaps the weakest President in history, mouthy, preening, ineffectual, much talk and no action. He did nothing while the rioters looted, burned, and vandalized, then disengaged himself from the pandemic, leaving decisions to the states. Much cawing and gaudy feathers, but no bird inside.

Congress does nothing, one parry neutering the other and all bought and paid for by special interests, by Wall Street and the arms makers and the big corporations. Local governments submit to the rioters or stand aside as the burning goes on. This is not society. It is chaos.

To collapsing countries these usually comes a man on a horse. A man with a big stick. You know, 1789, 1917, 1933. That kind of thing.

The media encourage the rioters, inflame passions either deliberately or through partisanship. They have little idea what they are encouraging. It may seem strange to say that the media do not know what is going on—it is their business to know–but they don’t. They were blindsided by the Trump because they had no idea of conditions in the country, in Flint and Gary, in Wheeling. Today they do not know what is brewing out there, or of how much they contribute to it.

After all, nothing out in the great mysterious middle land affects them. Journalists in the Beltway Isolation Cage are rich compared to deplorables in in Gary, live in a city proof against recession. Their decisions are whether to go out for Turkish or Vietnamese, not how to pay the rent. They censor news they don’t like, suppress the seismic rumblings out there in a country they don’t really know. In censoring others they censor themselves. They cannot read stories they cannot write. For example, sickening racial attacks on whites. That would be racism. Perish forfend.

But race is just the most explosive part of an unfunctioning polity. Other things ratchet up the fury. Add economic decay and you get more anger, more pressure. People live paycheck to paycheck, maxed out on credit cards. They don’t have a thousand dollars, or five hundred, for an emergency. The young live in their parents’ basements because they can’t get jobs to buy houses and start families. People don’t see doctors because medical care is both costly and wretched. Student loans crush the young. Grade schools are propaganda mills; parents know it, but can do nothing. Retirement programs vanish as employers turn employees into independent contractors, avoiding the expense of benefits. People see no hope. This makes them dangerous. Watch.

And BLM wants to go into the suburbs to get Whitey. God help us. Then it will well and truly blow. BLM doesn’t know how many white men are sick of the chaos and destruction, sick of BLM. They quietly say, “Bring it on. Let’s settle it.” Laden words.

While these undercurrents grow, the media will chirp and lecture and say virtuous things. Then, boom.

No one is in charge. No one will tell the rioters “No” and make it stick. No one, yet. It can blow.

BLM is cocky, aware of its power, made overconfident by easy victory. It, and Antifa, have never met resistance. If things get really wild, though, they will. They will also find that food does not really grow in Safeway, and that a Safeway burned out does not necessarily return to be burned out again.

A country gets what it asks for, and deserves what it tolerates. Most of the social problems engendering chaos result from the failure or collusion of government. Other countries have good national medical care. America does not. Student loans are a calculated scam, just as credit card companies deliberately entice people to buy what they cannot afford and then charge them usurious interest. Retirement plans exist elsewhere. European countries have them. But the Pentagon and Wall Street get America’s money.

It’s gonna blow. Short of a miracle.

The deadliest question is how to accommodate blacks. One mustn’t say what everyone knows, that blacks are the least educable, least productive, most criminal, most violent, most dependent, and least assimilable of the population. If anything can be done about any of these, it won’t be, because no one is permitted to name the problem. No one is in charge.

As whites lose economic ground they will be less willing to pay for welfare, food stamps, free housing, and other charity. When a pie shrinks, someone will get less pie and, if the pie shrinks a great deal, some will get almost no pie. Meanwhile, gun sales are way up.

At least six cities had serious riots last night with the mob throwing bricks at the police. A thrown brick is a lethal weapon. It would be met with equally lethal force. Yet governments, mayors, city councils back away, back away, back away. If they stop, it is going to be ugly.

America does not control its streets. The mob does. Everywhere. Name another country that permits this.

If confronted by force, the white rioters, mostly young, will melt away. They are Snowflakes, Millennials, young, stupid, ignorant, having the most exalted time of a life boring before and soon to be again, Blacks, more virile, will not. If they do not, the resultant mayhem will make our starter riots like like a PTA meeting at Lake Woebegone. Then what?

Here we come to the joys of diversity. Cultures can be too different to live together. Whites and blacks have almost no common ground, little common history. Whites trace their history back to well before the ancient Greeks, through Rome, the Renaissance, Europe. Blacks had no part in this and, it seems, have no interest in it. Aristotle? Thomas Jefferson? Einstein? Madame Butterfly? Galois? FORTRAN? These might all have come from some remote galactic civilization.

There is no agreement, anywhere, at any level, over anything. Hardcore conservatives insist that the coronavirus is no worse than the common flu as hospitals report overwhelmed ICUs and epidemiologists cry the alarm. Blue states favor lockdown while red states open up. Libertarians peddle cockamamie conspiracy theories. Mask laws are ignored or fought over. China, South Korea, Singapore shut down, control the virus, go back to work. Not America. Nobody is in charge.

Nothing holds the country together. There is no social glue, no dominant culture. We have no shared history, language, dialect, ethnicity, or religion. Diversity turns the country into rubble.

Diversity? It is the end of America. The country once was overwhelmingly white, European, Anglophone, and Christian. It worked, as approximate monocultures usually do. No longer. The North hates—the word is not too strong—the South and seeks to erase its culture and uniqueness. The Bible Belt is intensely Christian while the northern elites, heavily Jewish, seek to suppress Christianity. The coastal elites hold the central deplorables in contempt. Blacks hate whites. Feminists hate men.

Hispanics float in indeterminate limbo, not having jumped either way. Amerindians maintain a demanding apartness. Jews, neither Christian nor, in the minds of many, neither quite European or quite American, control the media and finance, generating perennial hostility. Bulk lot Somalis, having nothing in common with Minnesota, are in Minnesota. On and on.

It is going to blow. If it doesn’t, a miracle will have happened.

Currently, if weirdly, blacks hold the whip hand in the country, but it will not last and won’t improve racial relations. it is lighting a fuse, fertilizing hatreds that cannot be expressed but, if ever they are, Katie bar the door.

Statues come down if blacks don’t like them. Universities abandon teaching English grammar because blacks can’t understand it. Whites are fired for saying, “All lives matter.” The country lowers standards for blacks in medical schools, lowers required scores on the bar exam for them. High schools give diplomas to blacks who can barely read.

Gonna blow, boys and girls. At least that’s the way to bet.

I’m a little bit of a history buff.

I can’t think of a country that was as divided and polarized as we are today that didn’t end up in civil war or breaking up into two or more nations. I can’t come up with a single example of a nation as broken as ours recovering without some sort of violence.

If anyone can think of one, let me know.

I recall my parents saying similar things about the late 60s and early 70s. I was too young so I can't say for sure whether that period compares to now. Any old timers out there that were adults back then who can make a comparison between today and then? Is this time around really worse?

there's no fixing the race issue in this country. the africans have whites tied up and are squeezing their balls so any time a white speaks up the battle cry of racist has the crackers scurrying back into their holes.

what i love about my country is i am basically mandated by law to like, hire, and placate a group of people who are allowed to hate me openly. it breeds resentment. now they are allowed to form armed militias and no one bats an eye. i'm living in a first world country thats reverting back to jungle law.

i've only become this cynical in the last 10 years. my folks brought me up to love everyone and now that i think back, i don't think i ever heard them utter a nasty thing about anyone or group. i got this way over time, i trust virtually no one now and certainly don't like anyone instantly. all that shit has to be earned over time. i say to my african brothers and sisters...you reap what you sow.

Nonsense. I've been told for years that diversity is our strength. Also its official NES policy to cheer the sight of groups of angry black guys with rifles. They'll all start voting republican because they have guns now.

War of the Roses might fit the bill from a historical perspective.

War of the Roses

All that being said, I do believe we are headed for some sort of dust up. How far that goes is up for conjecture.

One thing to be mindful of is most of this "race issue" is being perpetrated by MSM bullshit and a bunch of virtue signaling white people. If there was a real widespread race discontent thing in this country, most of it would already be burning, not just a bunch of liberal big dump cities where the government freely allows people to run around like animals destroying shit, simply because they don't like the sitting president.... a huge part of this whole thing is a big AstroTurf job. It's present even at the protests and riots, the white mooonbats outnumber black people like 2 to 1 at a lot of them.

The dangerous thing about this bullshit is it doesn't take much more than that to cause an actual problem, look at like what the Bolsheviks did, etc.. and so on. You don't even need a simple majority to f*** a country up.

BLM consists mainly of idiotic white SJW's and NFAC has shown itself to be just another band of parading loud mouths. Been hearing similar squawks from similar groups for a long time. It's tiresome.

Fear porn. If you are trying to scare your own side, you are a traitor. An armed black mob in a Southern suburb, good luck to them. Bus them and their guns up to Cambridge or a metrowest pleasantville and they might get their wilding in. Otherwise their party ends as soon as they leave the hood.

yeah, i hear it also but it's a political battle cry to gather up votes. i love diversity, when people contribute into it. but when a white person embraces diversity and african culture, they're pushed back with cries of cultural appropriation. there's no winning.

diversity? don't do as i do, do as i say.

I don’t know. Not old enough. But judging by the election results of 68 and 72, there really was a silent majority that was fed up with the unrest.

perhaps there really is a silent majority and Trump carries all the states he took last time and adds on to the total.

The only poll the matters is on November 3rd.

I'm guilty of this too, but we're letting the twittersphere define what America is like. I read the news and watch the riots and think America is the most racist, hateful place in the world. Then I go for a walk and say hello to people of all backgrounds. I hear the older white lady across the street yucking it up with the black lady across the street, and fawning over the Asian baby down the street. Hell, even the junkies across the street and a few houses down don't bother anyone. The lesbians next door don't hate on me for being a white cisgendered straight man.

Twitter isn't real life, kids. These riots aren't happening because The People want them to, they're happening because the local government wants them to.

As for controlling the streets, we had an abandoned house that became a popular spot for junkies. They thought they could come and go as they pleased and maybe the cops would run them off from time to time. Well they stepped foot on the neighbor's property one too many times and he was gracious enough to let them collect their teeth before leaving. This is a quiet, American street in a liberal New England town.

I'm optimistic that The People will not put up with this crap much longer.

I’m of Northern European descent. If I started slicking my hair back wearing a gold chain with an Italian horn and wedged “gabagool” into every sentence, you don’t think I’d catch shit from every Italian I know? Appreciating and appropriating are two different things.

Meh. Another doomsday-sky-is-falling soothsayer bringing a picture with incredible slant. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. At one of those two times, this (or another dolt) will jump up and down and say "See! I told you so!"

when the white rappers hit the music industry, like that guy from detroit.. white ice? don't remember his name, the african musicians were screaming foul, that's white appropriation of our music. now, not too long ago, that african dude, lil nasx, hits the country charts and nashville beats feet to his door to show how inclusive the country music industry is. appreciating and appropriating, the definition is based on what color your skin is.

You think Eminem hasn’t been embraced by rap artists? The country *industry* may have rolled out the welcome mat, but you wouldn’t need to walk one foot into rural Tennessee to find someone to call it appropriation. Or some vibrant synonyms.
