There has been much debate within the electorate this election year about what defines "true conservatism" or "true liberalism." With wildly popular grassroots insurgent candidates threatening the ideological orthodox in the Republican and Democratic party, the bipartisan globalist elite which rules both has been floundering in their attempt to appease their respective base constituents.
On the conservative side, we have witnessed what our beloved Sean Hannity has endearingly dubbed "a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party." Beginning in April of 2015 and featuring 17 substantively unique candidates, the GOP Primary was a true intellectual civil war. The entire right wing ideological spectrum was represented, from the ultra-conservative Ted Cruz to the compassionate conservative John Kasich to the neoconservative Marco Rubio. Over the course of 12 debates and 44 contested primary votes, everyday Americans chose a new path for their party at the ballot box. Ultimately, the prevailing ideology which emerged from this cage match of personalities and platforms was not the Democrat-lite conservatism of the establishment, represented by John Kasich; not the Christian Constitutionalism of the insurgent Tea Party, represented by Ted Cruz; but something new on the national stage. Not new to We the People, but something new to the national dialogue dictated and controlled by a bipartisan political media cartel. The champion of tomorrow's Republican Party and winner of its nomination was the purest, most primitive, raw, and natural governing principle of conservatism. A principle as old as time. Order. Donald Trump is the law and order candidate.
And what of the liberals? What of the Democratic primary then? It is only appropriate that the logical inverse of law and order, of Republican Donald Trump, must be lawlessness and chaos. And can anyone imagine an administration more lawless or more chaotic than that of Hillary Clinton? Just as the GOP Primary manifested the conservative penchant for rigorous discourse and intellectual (and personal) integrity, so the Democratic primary manifested the liberal inclination towards insanity, corruption, and impracticality. This year, only five rich/old/white politicians participated in the nominating contest for America's party of diversity and the disenfranchised. There was Lincoln Chafee, from the city-state of Rhode Island, who dropped out after explaining that he voted incorrectly on Glass-Steagall because his dad died and he was confused. Jim Webb who, when asked which enemy he was most proud of, said a man he killed in Vietnam. Martin O'Malley who had the nerve to say "All Lives Matter" out loud (he apologized for this racist remark later). And then of course we were left with the main characters of the primary, Bernie and Hillary. What resulted between the two was essentially a scorched earth campaign led by a lunatic socialist to drive the Democratic party to the left of Karl Marx. He almost succeeded if not for his mistaken assumption that the Democratic party favored insanity over corruption (regular democrats do, but not the party).
Today is the beginning of the end of that primary, the first session of the Democratic National Convention. This week, the ideological clash between law and order represented by the Republican Party and the corruption and chaos represented by the Democratic Party will be on full display with the this parallel convention in Philadelphia. It is only appropriate that this week will be a week of massive protests, broken English, and perhaps seizures (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzCQg94oOmk). And it will also be the last supper of liberalism in America.
The election of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 completed the ascendancy of progressivism and of the new Alinsky coalition. This combination is lethal and I'll tell you why. The problem with the dominant progressive narrative of "social justice" is what Thomas Sowell calls the open-ended fallacy in his Economic Facts and Fallacies. The best definition of the open-ended fallacy is any movement or argument for which more is never enough; and we have seen this in nearly every liberal policy position of the last 8 years from healthcare to race relations to deficit spending. Historically and by definition, liberalism is a revolutionary ideology which has served as a vessel to topple the status quo in culture, politics, and economics. Liberalism cannot govern, liberalism can only revolt, as was demonstrated in France in 1789 and Russia in 1917. Social Justice then acts as a perpetual and open ended revolution against the American culture. This is why civil rights turned into black lives matter. This is why gay tolerance turned into bake this cake or we shut down your business. This is why women's suffrage turned into a Ghostbusters remake that if you don't like you're a sexist and you can't be on Twitter (#FreeMilo). The progressive ideology in general and the social justice narrative in particular have the virality and resiliency of a biological weapon.
The problem with the Alinsky coalition, that is the liberal constituency of disenfranchised minorities and city dwellers invented by Saul Alinsky, is that this ragtag bunch of alienated proletariats is not a viable governing coalition. There are no shared principles between the black community, the LGBT community, the Muslim world, Asians, Hispanics, illegals, and rich whites in New York and LA. For this reason, the Alinsky constituency is a mob. A mob united by one aim, which is to destroy Western culture and to punish the West for perceived historical wrongdoing. This is why #BlackLivesMatter cares more about neutering police and lecturing whities than actual black lives. This is why third wave feminists care more about men spreading their legs on the subway than, you know, every woman in the Middle East. This is why gays will protest Christians and Republicans after a Democrat and a Muslim kills 50 homosexuals in a night club after pledging allegiance to ISIS.
So what happens when you give the most toxic ideological bio-weapon in American history to a mob of violent Marxists united only in their hatred of America and their support for the Democratic party? First you get two terms of Barack Obama. You get socialized healthcare, you get the largest deficit in history, you get two activists on the Supreme Court , and then you get a Republican majority in the House in 2010. You get ISIS, you get the worst economic recovery since World War II, you get executive overreach, and then you get a Republican majority in the Senate in 2014. You get more dead cops, more terrorism, transgender bathrooms, and then you get a Republican President in 2016.
In 2008 and 2012 the social justice mob was the most fierce political fighting force since the Bolshevik Party in Russia, but for the past 8 years the Democratic establishment has held the reigns, or at least that was the illusion. This year the mob has broken free and is on the loose. This explains perfectly the rise of Bernie Sanders, the only logical candidate for the black-hole of entitlement spending and white male cuckoldry that is the snowballing progressive movement. Hillary tried to brand herself early on as "the progressive that can get things done." But the funny thing about mobs is that they're impatient, and they're not very prudent. Why wait for meaningful reform and swallow compromise when their bum Senator from a non-state can deliver a political revolution now and all the goodies and happy rhetoric that comes with it? Of course Hillary Clinton of the establishment does not crave the idealistic reform of a crusading mob, she wants to be the dispenser of small favors, she needs the masses dependent on her as power broker. But with their dominant role during the reign of Obama, the masses have come to wrongly see the establishment as an instrument for their vendetta against the West. This vision contrasts sharply with the reality, which has the mob as an instrument of the establishment for votes and power. They have been shown this with brutal force in the beat down of their candidate, they were sent a message that anybody wandering to the left of the political plantation sleeps with the fishes. But now they're pissed.
This convention will celebrate the coronation of the ultimate Wall Street-Washington crony and her conservative white/male running mate. Bernie Sanders, once the outspoken underdog, the only honest guy in the race (so they think) will crawl onto the stage, beaten and castrated, defeated, to grovel before the crooked chieftain of a national political machine. The DNC took a baseball bat to Sanders in primary after primary by hiding debates and outspending him at every level. They kicked him in the teeth when the leaked DNC emails came out this week revealing favoritism towards the Clinton camp, and to apologize the Clinton camp hired the corrupt DNC chair. This week they burn the fallen idol of the mob, Bernie, as he too submits to the will of the Party in primetime as they silence any echo of his radicalism on the ticket.
The Democratic National Convention will be the last straw for this vicious mob of social justice warriors and leftist zealots. As dictated by the open-ended fallacy, more is never enough. The mob does not want a third term of Barack Obama, they had moved far to the left of him years ago; and they cannot be satiated by token concessions from the disingenuous flip-flopper who now expects to lead them into battle. Just as Republicans turned on Republicans this year, so too will the Social Justice mob turn on the Democratic Party; although this mob has no intention to win, they would rather cannibalize their own party. As they themselves tweet, it's #Bernieorbust. Their revolution will go down in flames to bust and this fate will be sealed this week in Philadelphia. This is the last supper of liberalism. And liberalism is what's for dinner.
