A while back, I wrote about dystopias, but the viciousness and utter vindictiveness of the Democrats exceed by far my own dismal expectations. It is, of course, true to form – Marxist form, that is – and shows signs of being patterned on what the victorious “Reds” (read “blues” here) meted out to the defeated “Whites” after Russia’s Civil War.
Is there any way this could have been averted, without going into all of the “what ifs” of the past four years? Only one, that I can see, and several of us pointed it out earlier to no avail. This was for then-President Trump to take a tough stand when the riots broke out in late May, all but a few in Democrat-run cities. Give the mayors and the governors of those states 24 hours to bring them under control. If they failed to do so (which they did), invoke the Insurrection Act, and arrest a dozen or so of the most outrageous mayors and governors for sedition.
Then send Marines and regular Army soldiers (not National Guard) to some of the most violent cities with orders to crush the insurrection. The media would have howled, but it howled anyway. The riots would likely have ended bloodily – dead looters and arsonists are not good repeat offenders. And the Democrats would have been too terrified to have tried to so openly steal the 2020 election – it is unbelievable how unapologetically blatant the election fraud was.
But Trump hesitated, and we all are lost. I habitually prefer to believe that most conundrums have workable solutions, but sometimes they don’t, and this is one such time. I don’t want to hear any more about a popular uprising or some distant psyops. Men and women who failed to fight for their children and their cities and their Constitution, aren’t good candidates for taking up arms against an elected government – legitimate or not – with control of the armed forces and intelligence services.
We may have contested elections of a sort in 2022, and who knows? Perhaps even something in 2024 and later for the sake of appearances. I just wonder what shape the coming Long Night will take, and how those of us who love our country will rationalize our abysmal failure to forestall the “Blue Terror.”
Not a problem, not at all. For those pitiful souls desperate enough to still be clinging to the old, busted notion of ‘MurkaFreedom!!™—well, they’ll always find a way to keep the faith somehow. And the rest of us are going to have much more pressing concerns to deal with.
