A Middle Class Rebellion Against
Progressives Is Gaining Steam

Original Article

Posted By: Garnet, 6/4/2021 10:22:52 AM

A specter is haunting America, a great revolt that threatens to dwarf the noxious rebellion led by Trump. The echoes of a another potentially larger pushback can already be heard in progressive America. But it's not towards socialism, as many suggest. It's the opposite: a new middle-class rebellion against the excesses of the Left.This new middle-class rebellion isn't rejecting everything that progressives stand for; the Left's critique of neo-liberal excess is resonating, as is the need for improved access to health care.

No surprise to us Republicans. When the Democrat Party decides they're going to teach our Children that being White is Bad, loving country is Racist, that BLM should be allowed to burn down cities and nobody does anything about it, when Biden announces he is going to build section 8 Housing in the Suburbs (next to single family homes) when they shut off Pipelines and gas prices spike, when they announce only Electric Cars will soon be allowed on Roads....and on and on and on. Of course it will affect ALL of us, no matter which Party we belong to. Even the Democrats are waking up and saying, "we didn't know Biden was going to do this to US"! The Tide is rapidly turning and 2022 is going to be a Barn Burner! Nancy will be Retired and so will MANY others in the Congress and Senate (including a few Never Trumpers). Biden is the worse President in our Lifetime. Trump had this country running like a fine tuned car. Now we have messes everywhere and Biden is working on making more. He has no clue what he is doing! I say we should thank him. He is going to put the Republican Party back in Charge sooner than we thought due to his Executive Orders! We should thank him!

So what. So long as Democrats can manufacture votes on demand without penalty, the status quo maintains.

From the article: "A specter is haunting America, a great revolt that threatens to dwarf the noxious rebellion led by Trump." I read the article but had to paste that sentence from the first paragraph. I call bogus on that. The author needs to get real.

By the way, look up the definition of noxious. Maybe the author should brush off his own doorstep.

I think the sexualization of children must be added to this list. It has been reported a New York City teacher has shown 1st grade children how to stimulate their body. This is so evil! Let our children be children and innocent. Of course, too, the transgender movement of surgically or medically blocking a child’s natural development should be criminal.

8 percent of the population is Progressive, yet our idiots in charge are bending over backwards for them. Definitely worth the read, despite the one anti-Trump sentence.

The media/Demo complex is framing their rhetoric to make it seem like this is a fight between the "middle class" old-fogies and enlightened "progressive" thinkers. It's not. It's a war between the middle class and the ELITES. He who defines the terms controls the argument. Don't let them get away with this!

The left is going to have to create more fraudulent votes. Force them to create so many fraudulent votes that it is impossible to deny stolen elections. Of course the left would move on to their next phase: Rulership at the point of a gun.

The Trump movement is just the political canary in the coal mine of a much larger populist movement against what I call "the culture of manufactured reality". This is larger than politics. It is about manufactured news, music, film, food, and science. What people want more than anything is a return to authentic reality that is not carefully crafted by intellectual elites to keep people "comfortably numb" and under control. No lie or gaslighting trick is too devious in the pursuit of this "1984" utiopia. Those of us who listen to "pirate" alternatives like Steve Bannon see what's going on and continue to resist "Big Brother" like the woman in the classic Apple commercial. We are old enough to remember "alternative rock" radio hosted by savy DJs that brought authentic bands to public attention before the corporate oligarchs bought all the stations and programmed "fake music" that all sounds alike because its manufactured on computers by corporate employees. Its all part of the fourth turning of history that Bannon talks about. Stay tuned.

It is always "finger nails on the chalkboard" for me when I hear or read "progressives." They are nothing but socialists/communists and they wish to enslave those not in agreement with them. Observe how much the meaning of our language has been changed over the years. Communists were first liberals, then progressive, soon they will be something else. Take for instance "social distancing" there is nothing sociable about distancing. What about the "color" of states? Why are conservative states red and the regressive states blue? It should be the opposite.

To number 13, Democrats objected to being labeled "red" due to the obvious connection to Communism. And of course the Republicans acquiesced. You're right, it should be the other way around.

Aside from his remarks about Trump you can tell that the writer is afraid. He sees that the Biden regime is a fraud in its policies & that the 8% will not hold against the Real Majority. He knows that in the 2022 elections a massive rebuke will be delivered that will cripple the Fraud's regime. Basically he telling the Fraud to stop driving people to GOP. We know the Fraud won't stop😜

The progressives can only hope (they don't pray) that it doesn't turn into a shooting war. Everything else we have attempted has been defeated by their crooked politics so that's all that's left. We can't just let them win because they are willing to go down deeper into the sewer.

It has now become all but impossible on any given day to find a major media news outlet that doesn’t feature at least one apocalyptic opinion piece warning us that democracy is under attack by the diabolical Republican Party and its sinister leader Donald Trump. This kind of nonsense was once limited to nutty internet forums and social media sites. Now it is a staple of “serious journalism” in publications like the New York Times and the leading broadcast networks. This hysteria is not only unfettered from any genuine threat posed by the GOP or anyone else but is itself eminently dangerous to our system of representative democracy.

The tidal wave of probability, circumstantial evidence of such mass and consistency that it is now almost irrefutable, that the novel coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, will alter China’s relationship with the world and particularly with the United States.Accompanied as it is by the increasing volume of evidence that Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases — a post he has held for 37 years — and chief medical advisor to the president, went to unjustified lengths to deny that the coronavirus was anything but an unforeseeable escapee from a live food market, the unraveling story will ramify very widely.

For more than a year, it has been consecrated media fact that former President Donald Trump and his White House, on June 1 of last year, directed the U.S. Park Police to use tear gas against peaceful Lafayette Park protesters, all to enable a Trump photo-op in front of St. John's Church. That this happened was never presented as a possibility or likelihood but as indisputable truth. And it provoked weeks of unmitigated media outrage, presented as one of the most egregious assaults on the democratic order in decades.

In the past several months, multiple state legislatures have made moves to ban critical race theory — the latest hot-button issue in contemporary American politics — from their public schools. Activists have opined that critical race theory is either the cure for racial injustice in America or the most dangerous force threatening our democracy. Plenty of writers have explained the main tenets of the theory, some in great detail. But where did it come from? How did an obscure academic theory come to dominate the national political conversation in only a few years?The answer to these questions lies in the origins of the theory.

Maybe Bill Clinton was right about President Obama. After all, Arkansas Bubba was America’s “first black president.” Back in 2008 when Hillary Clinton was scheduled to be America’s Next President (The first time. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!), Bill Clinton became enraged after his Black voters down in South Carolina decided that they could, in fact, vote for themselves. After initial wariness about a half-African with a Muslim name, Black voters fell for Mr. Obama. Hard. Mr. Clinton’s bulbous nose turned bloody red with rage. The young upstart challenging his wife for the Democratic nomination, he insisted, was nothing more than just another Black race-hustler from Chicago.

President Joe Biden flies across the pond Wednesday to meet European leaders. He says the goal is to “deliver real results” on critical issues such as climate change and cybersecurity. Yet the president is ducking the most important issue: the cause of the pandemic. Biden should be marshaling allies to act in unison, squeezing China to get answers — and reparations. Because evidence is mounting that the Beijing regime is guilty of manslaughter. A column in The Wall Street Journal over the weekend persuasively argued that the coronavirus’ genetic sequence contains a sequence highly unlikely to come about naturally.

A lot of Republicans breathed a sigh of relief when Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) reiterated his support for the filibuster and pledged to vote against the For the People Act (S 1). His decision, which he explained in a Sunday op-ed written for the Charleston Gazette-Mail, is certainly good news. But, before celebrating the death of the pernicious “voting rights” bill, it would be useful to read paragraph 12 of Manchin’s column, wherein he declares his support for the equally dangerous John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (S 4263). This bill, like S 1, would effectively gut voter-ID laws and usurp state sovereignty over elections.

COVID shutdowns championed by U.S. governors and D.C. bureaucrats are responsible for destroying nearly 40% of small businesses since the virus was unleashed on the world—and we know now that it was for little to no damned good reason. A study by the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences revealed recently that shutdown orders made little to no difference in COVID’s impact. From the abstract of the study: “Previous studies have claimed that shelter-in-place orders saved thousands of lives, but we reassess these analyses and show that they are not reliable. We find that shelter-in-place orders had no detectable health benefits, only modest effects on behavior,
