bonfires, bankrupt ideas, whoda’ thunkit?

Bonfire of the Vanities – “Bad and bankrupt ideas, protocols, and ideologies—like McCarthyism, communism, various cults, or fascism—resurface not because of their intrinsic or lasting value or record of success, but because civilizations become less vigilant and allow human vanities, ignorance, arrogance, and evil to reassert themselves.” — Victor Davis Hanson: How Old Bad Ideas Become Wonderful › American Greatness — see also American Thinker on Tom Wolfe‘s book.

catalog of tragic comedy – “While we war on our past, our competitors abroad prep for the future. … How odd America once taught the world what works—only now to mock its own lessons.” —  Victor Davis Hanson: The World Wants No Part of Woke, But It’s Glad We Do › American Greatness

where did our country go? – “We have gone so far beyond what is good and right or fair that the damage the Washington Establishment class continues to inflict will fester like an unhealed wound upon the nation’s body politic, striking even the most complacent among us with its putrid stench.” — J.B. Shurk: Enough Already: Release the J6 Political Prisoners – American Thinker — “We seek a renewal of the Constitution and a rejection of the Washington Deep State’s casual disregard for its meaning and the intentional malice its bureaucratic servants dedicate to its degradation.  Just as with Mellis and other J6 political prisoners, we stand with America.”

show trial — “Apparently, New York AG Letecia James wasn’t satisfied, though. Later in the day, after Bannon had turned himself in, he was put in chains and perp walked down a long line of prepositioned media for his arraignment. … Democrat partisans in AG offices and the DOJ have spent the last several years playing this game. We’ve seen it multiple times, with CNN magically being present for pre-dawn raids of Trump associates.” — Bonchie: WATCH: New York AG Twists the Knife Into Steve Bannon – RedState

defining problems — “The real threat comes from the unlikeliest of suspects: educated liberal females, or “ELFs” for short.” — Jack Cashill: Why ‘Educated’ Liberal Women Are the Real Threat to Our Republic – American Thinker — “In November, Biden needs the ELFs to vote en masse.  This will happen only if they remain ignorant of the things that should worry them — the border, crime, inflation — and scared silly of things that need not.  Something tells me that the producers of Biden’s Nuremberg-style spectacle knew what they were doing.”

case in point – “Liberals such as Jennifer never tire of claiming to be the sole custodian of compassion and understanding.  Yet Jennifer has no empathy for her own family.” — Rajan Laad: Jennifer Lawrence has foul words for Donald Trump and nightmares about Tucker Carlson – American Thinker

told you so – “San Fran stinks to high heaven. A brown algae has taken over the bay, killing fish and making life miserable in the Port-a-John City. – Three years ago, Donald Trump tried to save the city. – The city blew him off.” — Don Surber: Trump tried to save SF
