Elon Musk: The Left is Losing the Middle

But the polls tell me Biden is up 15 on Trump!

elonmustk

Excluding the polls, is there any evidence Joe Biden is winning this election?

Just entertain the possibility, for one second, that the Almighty Polls are either wrong or rigged, and that we cannot trust what they say. Who do you think is winning this election based on the general feel of the country right now?

People aren’t stupid. They see the collective insanity of the left. They see the images of what’s happening in Portland, even if the media tries to hide them:

No matter what the media tries to say, no matter how much they try to shift the narrative to “TRUMP’S SECRET FASCIST POLICE!” most Americans understand what’s going on.

At the most basic level, most Americans understand that Joe Biden = Antifa, Joe Biden = BLM, Joe Biden = endless lockdowns.

Is there any indication that “the middle”–those few remaining Americans who are persuadable every four years, who vote mostly based on intuition and gut, who are not wedded to any one political party, and who tend to instinctively reject extreme behavior and disruption–are flocking to the left?

I just don’t see it–outside of the polls.

The country has changed. People don’t mindlessly believe the media anymore. Maybe 25-30 years ago, people would have believed the media’s lies about coronavirus, police brutality, white privilege, systemic racism, Antifa and the “mostly peaceful protests”, and Trump would be toast.

But if people still believed the media, then Trump would not have even been elected back in 2016.

I highly doubt the media’s reputation has improved over the past five years. If anything, it has gotten significantly worse.

People just don’t believe the media anymore. They don’t believe it’s Trump’s fault that the economy is in the toilet. They don’t believe the virus is his fault. And they don’t think he’s the reason unarmed black people are killed by police.

On top of that, most normal Americans are 100% in favor of hardass federal agents crackin’ Antifa skulls on the streets of Portland. Most Americans do not like seeing a major American city fall into chaos and anarchy. They want to see order restored.

I also don’t see 2016 Trump voters abandoning him. They already knew about his Twitter account back then. “His tweets” are not going to push people towards Biden.

In 2016, people voted for Donald Trump because they felt like America was at the point of no return. They could sense the hard left turn the Democratic Party had taken, and knew that if the Democrats held the White House for another four years, this country would be finished. This view was best summarized in “The Flight 93 Election“:

“The election of 2016 is a test—in my view, the final test—of whether there is any virtù left in what used to be the core of the American nation. If they cannot rouse themselves simply to vote for the first candidate in a generation who pledges to advance their interests, and to vote against the one who openly boasts that she will do the opposite (a million more Syrians, anyone?), then they are doomed. They may not deserve the fate that will befall them, but they will suffer it regardless.”

Nothing has materially changed since 2016. Trump has made some progress, to be sure, but the Cabal is not anywhere close to being defeated. We are not out of the woods by any stretch. And nobody who voted for Trump in 2016 has gotten cold feet between then and now. They haven’t changed their minds and now think Trump is the biggest threat to America. They are still with Trump.

I have not yet seen one good case made that Trump has lost a lot of his 2016 supporters. I am not buying that he’s lost many of his 2016 supporters because of “his tweets.” He was tweeting in 2016 and it didn’t deter people from supporting him.

If anything, Trump has only gained support since 2016. This is what Elon Musk is talking about: the insanity of the left is turning lots of people into Trump voters by default.

Trump was portrayed as dangerous and crazy during the 2016 election. As President he’s benefited because the media set the bar so low for him with its hyperbolic and outlandish coverage of him. Most of the people who couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Trump in 2016 are now saying, “This guy wasn’t nearly as bad as they said he’d be.”

The left is losing the middle. Trump is the one that wants kids back to school next month. He’s the one that wants the rioting to end.

He’s the “normal” candidate.

The Democrats are asking you to vote for an obviously senile old man who has been locked in his basement for the past four months because his handlers know the less the public sees of him the better. The Democrats are asking for you to vote for a figurehead candidate who will, from day one, be controlled by the most radical leftists imaginable, who are seeking nothing less than the complete dismantling of America as we know it.

The Democrats are asking you to sympathize with the rioters. They’re asking you to defund the police. They’re asking you to endorse open and explicit anti-white racism. They’re asking you to accept the economic suicide of your country over a virus that has killed 0.0004% of Americans.

They’re asking you to support a party that is now run by and for crazy people.

It’s just not gonna happen, no matter how much the polls are trying to say it is. Elon Musk just said what most of us know intuitively.

The Real Pandemic in America is Mental Health

The collective insanity of Leftwing activists, not the Coronavirus, is the real threat to America:

Are these people so colossally narcissistic that they think their mere existence is an act of heroism? Are they such self-absorbed fart-sniffers that they convince themselves everyone else is out to get them?

No one is oppressing them at all. In fact, we could not care less about them one way or another. Most of us have enough to worry about in our own lives.

But when you’ve been repeatedly told you’re oppressed, and in a society where victimhood is the most valuable form of social currency, you start perceiving every mundane slight or misfortune as the whole world conspiring against you.

It’s why so many people conflate sporadic and isolated acts of racism as widespread, deliberately engineered “systemic” racism.

Are these people just starved for attention? I get the feeling that they enjoy feeling oppressed because it makes them feel important and noticed. Their real fear is not being oppressed, but that society couldn’t care less about them one way or another.

It just feels like so many on the left have completely lost their grip on reality and have slipped into madness.

How else do you explain this?

How else do you explain this obsession with gender pronouns, and this idea that gender is a “fluid spectrum”?

Right now in Portland and Seattle, Antifa & Co. are basically in full-blown insurrection because. . . they want to defund the police? And now they’re even angrier and riotier because. . . federal agents are trying to restore order and prevent them from burning down their cities?

It has become a rioting paradox: “We must riot because they’re trying to stop us from rioting!”

Protest because you’re insane and want to defund the police ➡️  the protest becomes a riot ➡️ go completely overboard destroy large parts of your city ➡️  the federal agents called to restore order simply do their jobs and have no mercy on you ➡️  you believe the federal agents are proof you’re oppressed and Trump is a fascist ➡️  protest and riot even more because you feel like you’re oppressed.

It all starts with these people being completely delusional.

Don’t these people have lives? Many are paid agitators. But not all of them. What is wrong with these people?

The real pandemic in America is mental health. So many of our big cities have become open air insane asylums, with the mentally disturbed thrashing and flailing about nonstop for two straight months now.

I mean, look at this person shrieking at the top of his lungs. This is an unwell person:

How do we remedy this situation? How do these people get better? Can they, even? Will this ever get better?

I certainly hope so. In the past I’m sure there were plenty of crazy people out there. But nowadays it feels like they represent a much higher percentage of the population. It feels like we’re being overrun by the crazies.

But on the other hand, it could just be TV and social media distorting our reality and making it seem like everyone’s gone crazy by only focusing on the crazies. I haven’t seen many of these lunatics in real life–it’s all been on social media and the news.

Let’s hope it’s mostly a psy-op by the Masters of the Culture, because if not, then we’re living in a country where the Coronavirus pales in comparison to the real pandemic: mental illness.

 

Ocasio-Cortez: Skyrocketing Crime in NYC is Just People Trying to Feed Their Hungry Kids

Yeah, sure:

Screen Shot 2020-07-14 at 11.36.19 AM

I seem to recall, during the widespread looting in June, lots of stolen big-screen TVs and smashed-up Nike stores.

Not many loaves of bread and cartons of eggs.

At what point did Democrat politicians decide that crime is fine and that criminals are actually the Real Victims?

See, this is why we have broken into Two Americas. There’s no common ground anymore. We can’t even agree that crime is bad and must be stopped, because apparently the standard position of the Democratic Party is now that enforcing the law is Racist.

New York City was an absolute warzone from the 1970s until the early 1990s. At its peak in 1990, it saw over 2,300 murders a year:

For perspective on just how dangerous NYC was at its worst point, consider that in 2019, there were only four cities in the world that had over 2,000 murders per year:

Screen Shot 2020-07-14 at 12.04.33 PM.png

30 years ago, New York City was arguably the most dangerous place on earth. As you can see from the chart above, Mayor Rudy Giuliani instituted the stop and frisk policy, which massively reduced not only murder rates but overall violent crime rates in general.

In his short-lived Presidential campaign earlier this year–which for some reason feels like it was years ago instead of months ago–Giuliani’s successor as NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg tried to downplay his continuation of “stop and frisk,” but a secret recording of him from 2015 indicated he was a big fan of stop-and-frisk:

“In an audio clip of the 2015 speech Bloomberg gave to the Aspen Institute, the billionaire acknowledged that “stop and frisk” targeted minority “kids” whom cops must throw “up against the wall” to disarm. The Aspen Times reported at the time that Bloomberg representatives asked the Institute not to distribute footage of his appearance.

“Ninety-five percent of murders- murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops,” he said. “They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city (inaudible). And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.”

Stop-and-frisk worked. It dramatically reduced crime in NYC. And yet Bloomberg’s successor, Bill de Blasio (aka Warren Wilhelm) ended the stop and frisk policy because it was “disproportionately targeting minorities.”

It was also responsible for lowering crime rates in the city significantly. But I guess it’s racist to aggressively fight crime if most of the criminals are minorities.

And that’s the problem: Democrats would rather have high crime rates than adopt policies that are honest about what is needed to fight crime.

We’re not a country anymore. We can’t even agree that crime is bad.

At some point, America apparently became a suicide pact: we now have to share a country with people who would rather have sky-high murder rates than arrest the young minorities who more often than not commit those murders.

Even mentioning the fact of who commits the murders is taboo nowadays.

People like Ocasio would rather make excuses for why criminals are actually noble heroes than crack down on the crime wave.

It’s not like this country doesn’t have the ability to get crime under control. We’re not like Mexico where the cartels are more powerful than the government.

Law enforcement could have this country under control in a week if they weren’t hindered by Democrats. Take CHAZ, for example: the police riot unit could have rolled in there and gotten that under control in a half-hour if they were just allowed to do so.

But they weren’t allowed to, so CHAZ stuck around for a few weeks.

We have simply chosen not to fight crime because Democrats will say That’s Racist.

They are going to be the death of us all, and I don’t want to share a country with them anymore. I want off the ride.

If they would rather be murdered than called Racist! then let them. But don’t consign the rest of us to that fate.

 

State-Enforced Transgenderism

A jury in Texas recently told a man that his 7-year-old son (both pictured above) is going to be transitioned into a girl and there’s not a damn thing he can do about it:

“A jury in Dallas, Texas has ruled against Jeffrey Younger, the father who is trying to protect his seven-year-old son, James, from chemical castration via a gender “transition.” This means James’ mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, will be able to continue “transitioning” him into “Luna,” and now has full authority to start him on puberty blockers and eventually cross-sex hormones.

The jury’s decision likely means that Mr. Younger will be required to “affirm” James as a girl, despite his religious and moral objections, and will also be forced to take a class on transgenderism.”

This is pure humiliation for the dad. As if he is the one who needs to be enlightened about Transgenderism. He’s just an angry, ignorant white male conservative who’s stuck in the past and afraid of all this wonderful Change and Progress.

“With a consensus of 11 of the 12 jurors, the jury decided not to grant Mr. Younger Sole Managing Conservatorship over his twin boys. They voted that the current Joint Managing Conservatorship should be replaced by a Sole Managing Conservatorship, but that Mr. Younger should not be that person.

Mr. Younger and Dr. Georgulas were in court last week fighting over custody and decision-making abilities for James and his twin, Jude. Mr. Younger argues his ex-wife is “transitioning” James against the boy’s will.”

This man’s insane liberal wife wants to make their son transgender so she can be like the Cool Celebrities and their #trendy transgender kids. The insane liberal wife also refers to James as “Luna,” a Hispanic name for the virtue signaling double-whammy, because apparently you get double the Woke Points for being both transgender and trans-racial. And white names are just so boring, aren’t they?

She does not care that she is already doing serious psychological damage to the boy by telling him he’s a girl. And that’s to say nothing of the serious physical damage she’s about to inflict on this poor boy by forcing him to take medications that will turn him into a female. The human body was not designed to literally change its sex, and any attempt to do so is unnatural, in addition to being immoral, and will inevitably lead to serious medical and psychological problems.

But the Affluent Female Liberal need to virtue signal trumps all of this. Poor James’ mother WILL have a transgender child at any cost.

I remember not so long ago there was a time in this country where Affluent Women’s status seeking could be satisfied with a nice car and an expensive purse, maybe some breast implants. Now in 2019 they’re giving their 7-year-old sons hormone blockers to turn them into girls.

The term “child abuse” is appropriate here, but in my opinion it is not strong enough to fully convey the wickedness of what this woman is attempting to do to poor James. It’s more like child torture.

We are truly living in upside-down clown world when a jury decides a custody battle in favor of the parent that wants to torture the child.

Just four years after gay marriage was legalized, we now officially have state-enforced transgenderism.

“SLIPPERY SLOPE FALLACY!” they shouted.

***

Update: Thankfully, a judge has overruled the jury’s ridiculous decision and Jeff Younger will be granted partial custody of James. Hopefully this means the poor boy will not have to be pumped full of chemicals and hormone blockers.

Still, the fact that this almost happened is worrying because it shows just how bad the state of this country is when a jury of a man’s peers rules that he has to allow his insane ex-wife to chemically castrate his son.

The fact that it was a jury of everyday people making that decision is evidence that degenerate liberal propaganda and brainwashing has been devastatingly effective.

Brainwashed to the Point of Suicide: Florida Woman Stabs Herself Because she was “Tired of Living in Trump’s Country”

This is 100% due to media brainwashing:

“A Florida woman told police that she stabbed herself in the stomach with a kitchen knife because, “I’m tired of living in Trump’s country, I’m tired of Trump being president.”

Cops found the 46-year-old woman standing outside her residence in Palmetto Sunday, according to a police report. She had blood all over her legs, hands, and face, a cop noted.

When asked what was wrong, the woman lifted her shirt to reveal “three stab wounds on [her] stomach that were still bleeding.” She then told the patrolman she had “stabbed herself because she does not want to live in Trump’s country.”

The woman was subsequently transported by EMS workers to a local hospital “under trauma alert.”

Okay, maybe not 100% the media’s fault. Probably a large percentage of the blame has to go to the woman herself, who is obviously mentally ill.

But that doesn’t change the fact that the reason she stabbed herself was because she “didn’t want to live in Trump’s country anymore.”

Now, this woman’s life has probably not changed one bit due to Trump being in the White House instead of Obama. In other words, she hasn’t been directly affected by anything Trump has done over the past couple years.

It’s not like Trump’s many roving death squads ransacked her town and kidnapped her family. Trump has done nothing to this woman.

So why, all the sudden, would she find life in Trump’s America unbearable to the point that she’d plunge a kitchen knife into her stomach in an attempt to kill herself?

Because of the media’s coverage of Trump. Because of the contrived hysteria by Blue-Checked “journalists” on social media over Trump.

The Uniparty media’s endless negativity and 24/7 anti-Trump propaganda convinced this woman that America had become an unlivable hellhole of misery and pain.

The media pushed this already-unwell woman over the edge to the point of suicide.

The dishonest Uniparty media bleats on and on about “Trump’s Rhetoric!” making bad things happen in the country. Any time there’s a hate crime, it’s always blamed on “Trump’s rhetoric.”

What about the media’s rhetoric? What about the media’s propaganda and lies convincing a woman that life in Trump’s America is so horrific that her only option is to commit suicide?

The media has plenty of blood on its hands. In fact, I think going forward I’ll start documenting the instances where the media is at least partially responsible for real-world acts of violence–whether it’s convincing someone life isn’t worth living anymore because of Donald Trump, or convincing someone to go on a violent rampage against a group constantly demonized by the media (say, white people and Trump supporters in general). The media cannot continue getting away with being so reckless and irresponsible.

Fake News-driven media brainwashing has consequences. It has real-world consequences. People act on what they see on the news. Lots of people out there have no idea cable news is complete bullshit. They think it’s real. And the increasingly hysterical and apocalyptic tone of cable news in the Trump-era is pushing people over the edge. People out there think America has become the Fourth Reich under Trump, where black people are regularly lynched and gay people are being burned at stake (even though the reality is that virtually every major corporation is now lining up to adorn itself in rainbow colors and genuflect at the alter of the LGBT Movement during the Most Holy Pride Month.)

But the media doesn’t care that its Fake News has driven people crazy. The Uniparty’s various three-lettered media outlets are desperate to maintain their relevancy in the era of rising online digital media, and they will do or say anything no matter how repulsive, no matter how reckless. There is no collateral damage they will not accept.

They don’t even care if their Fake News drives people to kill themselves.

Democrats’ 2020 Platform: Destroy America

First, Democrats want to dumb down the electorate even further by allowing 16-year-olds to vote.

Then they will pivot to abolishing the electoral college to effectively disenfranchise the flyover states and have our elections decided by a few highly populated coastal urban areas. 20 million people live in the New York metro area, 18 million in the greater Los Angeles area, 10 million in the Chicago metro area, 7 million in the Bay Area, 6 million in the DC area, 5 million in South Florida, 4 million in the Seattle area: right there, that’s 70 million people. Game over.

Then they want to increase the size of the Supreme Court and pack it with Democrats.

Abolish ICE, the government agency that protects our borders, in order to allow millions more of illegals to flood in each year. Oh, and Democrats want to give those illegals drivers’ licenses and allow them to vote.

Dems claim border security is not even an issue:

The Democrats have gone so bananas that they make Obama in 2008 look like a straight-up closed-borders nationalist:

Also note the actual journalism on display in someone from CNN actually taking a Democrat to task in a debate. That’s gone now, too.

And for good measure, Democrats are also officially on board with infanticide. Third trimester abortions are now the “conservative” position in their party.

That’ll just about do it for America.
