Weekend 493.2

“Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.”
― Pink Floyd

“Well, you may throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin’ in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light.”

― Johnny Cash

(1) JFK’s Death Split the American Psyche (Splice Today)

This is a very grating article by Mark Judge that was linked via Instapundit. It continues the baby boomer obsession with Camelot (aka Elysium). The comments in Disqus have been equally critical on Instapundit too. The left essentially built a wall around pop culture and then accelerated the anti-liberal purge of conservatives via cancel culture. They are now using pop culture as a “platform” for pushing their social justice agenda (critical race theory and all that other postmodern non-sense).

There are NO safe spaces in pop culture for conservatives but we’re just as David Bowie and David Gilmour as those hardened lefties (anti-intellectuals) occupying our cultural institutions. It’s a claim (to pop culture) they have made that is being challenged by brash and fearless counter-cultural icons the left can’t cancel fast enough. The pogrom is relentless though now that pop-culture has been weaponized to erase every vestige of the Tao (up is down; left is right; two plus two equals five).

The article is accurate in its premise that both the left / right elites are trying to create heaven on earth. The inevitably of progress is folly and history is littered with those disastrous results. What a large swath of the country has forgotten is that we are active participants in the creation of all things¹ and NOT the source of all things.

(2) Why the American People Have Turned Against Biden (TH)

“Americans now understand the intimidation tactics of the radical left. They’ve seen the vile hate speech toward white Americans. They’ve seen the mayor of Chicago announce she will only do interviews with journalists who aren’t white. They’ve seen the Black Lives Matter and antifa groups rioting, looting, burning and causing anarchy. They’ve seen the censorship, banning and hatred inflicted on conservatives by social media and woke corporations. They’ve seen Palestinian mobs beating Jews in Los Angeles and New York. Radical Democrats have set this nation on fire.”

(3) We’re all Rick Moranis now in Biden’s America
