Thea cult of victimhood uses gas lamps. Is there any cure?

To Find The Origins Of Today’s Race Rage, Start In 1960s Academia. John Murawski – “Critical race theory sees racism as something new in the world that was born with European imperialism, colonialism, capitalism, and rationalism.” … “CRT has long been denounced as simplistic, dogmatic, fatalistic, and toxic — a cult of victimhood that embraces racial conflict as inevitable.”

“Even as they published in law journals, critical race theorists flouted the staid conventions of the legal establishment and adopted counter-narratives, fables, parables, allegories — even science fiction — to create what Delgado has called “a kind of counter-reality,” reflecting the perspectives of the downtrodden.

An early alarm that critical race theory would see the First Amendment and the rule of law itself as tools of capitalist oppression was sounded by Manhattan Institute scholar Heather Mac Donald in 1995.

Today’s critics treat CRT as agitprop advancing totalitarianism in the guise of research and scholarship.

“Their philosophy is in some ways a form of psychosis because it’s not wedded to the real world,” said Jason Hill

“What bothers me about the talk of white privilege is that it’s used as a kind of leverage to induce shame and guilt in white people,” Hill said. “It’s really a form of white annihilation. It’s really saying to white people: By virtue of your whiteness you need to die a certain kind of social death for me to prosper.”

Along with this general Robin Hood socialist mentality are these two stories from the ‘Nevada Independent’: [other people’s money is easy to spend and Nevada has a bad case of California flu… ]

Harder-hit by virus, Nevada’s communities of color expected to take greater economic hit in pandemic’s wake. Jazmin Orozco Rodriguez, Savanna Strott – “A new Guinn Center report released Wednesday warns that Nevada’s African American, Latino, Asian and American Indian populations also face a disproportionate economic burden and will have a harder time recovering and rebuilding from the economic crisis.”

New initiative provides economic aid for immigrant Nevadans ineligible for past state and federal aid. Jazmin Orozco Rodriguez – “The Esperanza Fund will provide financial relief for Nevada’s struggling immigrant communities after they were left out of earlier federal economic stimulus aid packages because of their immigration status.”

Gaslighting America: Democrats And Media Have Turned It Up To 11. I & I Editorial Board – “Gaslighting, which drives people to “question their thoughts, memories, and the events occurring around them” because they’ve been fed a steady stream of lies and disinformation, is often used by abusers, cult leaders, and dictators to amplify their power over others. No wonder the Democrats and media have adopted it for the 2020 election.”

At the City Journal is To Destroy America by Mike Gonzalez. The Hill has Romney says Trump’s protest tweets ‘clearly intended to further inflame racial tensions’ by Zack Budryk. National Review has A Clutch of Fools by Kevin D. Williamson. At Breitbart is Joe Biden Denies Calling for National Mask Mandate: ‘I’m a Constitutionalist’ by Kyle Olson.

The Democrats’ Mental Problem. Joan Swirsky – “It is now so obvious that Democrats don’t smile because they suffer from a low-level of chronic depression and anxiety. Even in victory, their smiles appear forced and phony. Even when they’re in power, they see doom and gloom everywhere, victims around every corner, the sky always falling, the glass inevitably half empty.”

A very special case of a gaslighting victim is Patterico asserting that President Donald J. Trump Encourages Supporters to Commit Felony Voter Fraud. – “When you’re a criminal, every problem looks like something that could be solved by committing a crime … There are two ways to change government: through peaceful elections that the nation can trust, and through violence. Trump is doing his level best to make the former impossible, and he doesn’t seem to care about where that might lead.” He also gets into the bleach drinking lie. TDS on parade. Is there any cure? Reality certainly isn’t.

Watching Joe go slow again. Scott Johnson – “He was prepared with written responses to certain of the questions. He appears pathetic as he struggles to locate and recite them.”

Trump Orders Feds To Begin Process Of Defunding New York, Portland And Other “Lawless” Cities. Tyler Durden – “In a five-page memo sent to federal agencies on Wednesday whose subject is “Reviewing Funding to State and Local Government Recipients of Federal Funds That Are Permitting Anarchy, Violence, and Destruction in American Cities””

“This is Playing with Fire! We’re a Very Closely Divided Country Here!” – WOW! AG Bill Barr GOES OFF on Wolf Blitzer on Mail-in Voter Fraud (VIDEO) By Jim Hoft – “During the discussion Wolf Blitzer tried to defend the Democrat plan” … Scott Johnson’s review is Barr in Wolf’s den – “The interview is intensely interesting and informative, and not just by contrast with Joe Biden’s remarks on the Blake case in the adjacent post.”

The left may have made a tactical error in Kenosha. Neo – “The left would have us think this was a spontaneous demonstration by the people of Kenosha, upset at the Jacob Blake shooting, but that never seemed likely to me. It seemed fairly clear that although some would be from Kenosha, a great many of the ones looting and burning would be in the category of “outside agitators.”

The Covid-19 Pandemic is Ending. James G. Robertson – “There were 33 early states where the epidemic was over by June, and 14 late states where the epidemic now is ending.” … “In contrast to the Covid19 attributed deaths, the number for deaths from all causes is a hard number. The deaths from all causes number exposes the current mass panic as an historical aberration and confirms the evidence that the mass panic has been engineered by politicians and a biased medical establishment.” … “Nevertheless, the hysteria and panic over Covid19 has not abated. And you can expect it to get worse.”
