Normal Americans Are Bored By The Fake Drama

Normal Americans Are Bored By The Fake Drama, by Kurt Schlicter.

This new breed of Nazis … is less menacing that the originals. Instead of schmeissers they pack Tiki torches — for reasons no one seems able to explain. The old Nazis invaded Poland and wouldn’t leave; these invade their moms’ basements and will never leave. But apparently these 300 or so misfits and malcontents are a potent peril to our republic. …

Schmeisser submachine gun, Germany 1938 – 1945

Tiki torches, Charlottesville 2017

They are not utterly harmless; one of these cowardly morons ran over and murdered a woman, which fulfilled the media’s long-standing dream of being able to report on a terrorist who wasn’t a radical Muslim, a Black Lives Matter fan, or a Bernie bro. …

The establishment’s tactic is to paint anyone they dislike as Nazis and any ideas its members oppose as hate speech, all in support of a strategy of slamming shut the Overton Window on any kind of change. The media is running with it, and if you get on Twitter, anyone to the right of Maxine Waters is now a Nazi – especially if you dare observe that the fascist fatties are not the only scumbags out there.

Even after a week, CNN is still quivering and writhing in an earth-shattering Nazigasm. …

It’s also got the usual suspects of the wuss right activated. That’s why you see needy Fredocons like Mitt Romney being retrieved from their well-deserved obscurity and sent out to dance eagerly for the nods and nickels tossed his way by the same media that said he gave people cancer. …

The ACLU has added an asterisk to its acronym that explains that the only civil liberties it’s going to be protecting from now on are the ones exercised by people approved by its rich liberal donors. Yeah, abandoning the one thing that earned the ACLU grudging respect across the board, its free-speech absolutism, seems like another smart long-term strategy.

Oh, and the tech twerps of Silicon Valley decided to take it upon themselves to decide what discourse may be discoursed. Yeah, that’s a smart long-term strategy that couldn’t possibly explode in their smug, goateed faces. …

And the normals?

Taking a break from Twitter and the media for a week to go be with normal people gave me an interesting perspective that I don’t get when I’m surrounded by others invested in politics. None of them care. The exact number of times I heard normal people mention Nazis was zero. …

The fact that the whole thing is so ridiculous doesn’t help it gain traction. Donald Trump is a lot of things, but a Nazi is not one of them. …

And the idea that when there are two sets of idiots facing each other you can’t point out that both sets of idiots are idiots just doesn’t ring true. Normal people are blessedly free of the little taboos that the establishment seeks to impose, like the one that forbids pointing out that the alt left is just as scummy and slimy as the alt right. The general feeling among normals is “A pox on both your basements.”
