When knowing Orwell, you’re able to understand how the May-2017 leftist Washington Post article “American Institutions Are ‘Under Assault’ By Trump”, that says: “Former director of national intelligence James Clapper issued a blunt warning on Sunday: President Trump is waging war on major U.S. institutions”, compares with the May-2022 conservative New York Post article “America Is Under Assault. Those Who Love Our Nation Must Defend Her”, that says: “Our institutions, from elections to the job market to law enforcement, stand accused of perpetuating a systemic racism that is impossible to eradicate…Our educational system, from kindergarten through graduate school, is increasingly a forum for crude propagandizing…Our system of government is attacked as archaic, unfair, and racially biased…Our traditional values of fair play, free speech, and religious liberty are trampled by inflamed ideologues determined to impose their will by force and fear…The national mood resembles those of the 1930s and 1970s, when radical critiques of America got considerable traction and our national self-confidence often seemed to hang by a thread”.
Though coming from the polar opposites of the American political spectrum, both of these articles agree that institutions are vital established organizations to the public character of a nation, and agree that an assault is a concerted attempt to do something demanding—both of which are the accepted definitions of these words.
To see which side of the American political spectrum is telling the truth; let’s examine which one “gives an appearance of solidity to pure wind” as it pertains to institutions, exactly like Orwell warned we should do.
Two of the oldest and most prestigious American-led institutions for the Western colonial world are the Nobel Prize, established in 1901, and the Pulitzer Prize, established in 1917—both of which are institutions that, for over a century, have honored the achievements of those whom they have named the greatest individuals and/or organizations.
In an example of “giving an appearance of solidity to pure wind”, however, the Nobel Prize institution awarded its 2009 Peace Prize to President Barack Obama near immediately upon him taking office, citing his “promotion of nuclear nonproliferation” and for him creating a “new climate” in international relations, especially in his “reaching out to the Muslim world”—a Nobel Prize followed by articles like “Obama Backs Biggest Nuclear Arms Buildup Since Cold War”—and in “reaching out to the Muslim world”, it saw Obama bombing the Islamic nations of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq and Syria.
President Donald Trump, it’s important to note, achieved the historic Abraham Accords bringing a lasting peace between Israel and its former Islamic enemies, and when leaving office saw articles appearing like “Donald Trump Is First President Since Jimmy Carter Not to Enter U.S. Troops Into New Conflict”—but Trump never received recognition from the Nobel Prize institution for his “solid” achievements, which proves it was attacked from the leftist political spectrum, not the conservative side.
In another example of “giving an appearance of solidity to pure wind”, the Pulitzer Prize institution awarded the leftist Washington Post and New York Times for their reporting on the Russiagate hoax—an award the Pulitzer Prize institution refused to rescind this past week, that caused President Trump to state: “Instead of acting with integrity and providing transparency, the Pulitzer Board is running cover for the biggest reporting failure in modern history: the fake Russia Russia Russia collusion hoax”—today it saw leftist New York Times columnist Bret Stephens issuing a public apology for the Russiagate hoax saying: “To this day, precious few anti-Trumpers have been honest with themselves about the elaborate hoax — there’s just no other word for it — that was the Steele dossier and all the bogus allegations, credulously parroted in the mainstream media, that flowed from it”—and are facts that prove the Pulitzer Prize institution was attacked from the leftist political spectrum, not the conservative side.
The public apology issued for being part of the Russiagate hoax by columnist Bret Stephens was included in the leftist New York Times article published today entitled “Eight Opinion Columnists Got Things Wrong, And They're Telling You Why”, wherein it states: “In our age of hyperpartisanship and polarization, when social media echo chambers incentivize digging in and doubling down, it’s not easy to admit you got something wrong...It’s not necessarily easy for Times Opinion columnists to engage in public self-reproach, but we hope that in doing so, they can be models of how valuable it can be to admit when you get things wrong”.
What I find most interesting about this series of New York Times public apology articles, however, is that it comes a day after Sister Ciara sent you her letter “Extraordinary Assault On “The Blob” Will Determine Fate Of World”, wherein she documented how American newsrooms came to be filled with radical socialist ideologues that create poisonous narratives instead of telling the truth—a fact further proven by supposedly conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks, who in his apology article openly admitted: “When I was in high school and college, I was a democratic socialist…I was entranced by the left-wing radicals of the 1930s — the way they wrote, painted, marched and organized on behalf of working men and women…I saw the world through the lens of class struggle”.
With overwhelming factual evidence abounding in America proving beyond any doubt that socialist forces and poisonous socialist narratives are attacking the institutions underpinning their nation, it was no surprise to see the article “Worksheet At Boston High School Suggests Assassinations As Legitimate Form Of Resisting 'Oppression'” appearing this past week—an article followed yesterday by Republican Party candidate US Congressman Lee Zeldin for New York State governor being attacked by an assassin wielding a weapon—an assassin arrested and charged, but who was quickly released on his own recognizance by socialist Democrat Party officials—and is a beyond belief release of this assassin coming at the same time socialist Democrats are demanding domestic terrorist sentencing enhancements for 6 January protesters who didn’t even enter into the US Capitol.
Also without any doubt, the release of this assassin by socialist Democrats is going to further enrage the tens-of-millions of Americans supporting President Trump, about whom leftist New York Times columnist Bret Stephens addressed in his open apology article “I Was Wrong About Trump Voters”, wherein he stated:
The worst line I ever wrote as a pundit — yes, I know, it’s a crowded field — was the first line I ever wrote about the man who would become the 45th president: “If by now you don’t find Donald Trump appalling, you’re appalling.”
This opening salvo, from August 2015, was the first in what would become dozens of columns denouncing Trump as a unique threat to American life, democratic ideals and the world itself.
Telling voters they are moral ignoramuses is a bad way of getting them to change their minds.
What were they seeing that I wasn’t?
That ought to have been the first question to ask myself.
I was blind to this.
I belonged to a social class that my friend Peggy Noonan called “the protected.” My family lived in a safe and pleasant neighborhood. Our kids went to an excellent public school. I was well paid, fully insured, insulated against life’s harsh edges.
Trump’s appeal, according to Noonan, was largely to people she called “the unprotected.” Their neighborhoods weren’t so safe and pleasant. Their schools weren’t so excellent. Their livelihoods weren’t so secure. Their experience of America was often one of cultural and economic decline, sometimes felt in the most personal of ways.
Trump voters had a powerful case to make that they had been thrice betrayed by the nation’s elites.
First, after 9/11, when they had borne much of the brunt of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, only to see Washington fumble and then abandon the efforts.
Second, after the financial crisis of 2008, when so many were being laid off, even as the financial class was being bailed out.
Third, in the post-crisis recovery, in which years of ultralow interest rates were a bonanza for those with investable assets and brutal for those without.
Oh, and then came the great American cultural revolution of the 2010s, in which traditional practices and beliefs — regarding same-sex marriage, sex-segregated bathrooms, personal pronouns, meritocratic ideals, race-blind rules, reverence for patriotic symbols, the rules of romance, the presumption of innocence and the distinction between equality of opportunity and outcome — became, more and more, not just passé, but taboo.
It’s one thing for social mores to evolve over time, aided by respect for differences of opinion.
It’s another for them to be abruptly imposed by one side on another, with little democratic input but a great deal of moral bullying.
I’d like to tell you that the open apology articles published by the leftist New York Times today are heartfelt and sincere, but nothing could be further from the truth, as, in truth and fact, they are driven by terror over just published articles like “French Left And Right-Wing Populist Parties Unite To Crush Macron’s Vaccine Travel mandate… Wild Cheers Erupt”, wherein it’s revealed: “In France, the current distribution of political power is having an effect…The Macron government has suffered a resounding defeat with its first legislative proposal – which is all the more important because it is the main agenda of Western elites, namely vaccination…There will now be no QR vaccination controls at the entry and exit from France”.
The cause of this “terror” is the rapidly growing and unstoppable nationalist-populist backlash against socialist-globalist forces raging in every Western colonial nation—a war so fierce, today in Italy it saw Giorgia Meloni and her national-populist forces bringing down the government—and in knowing what’s fast headed for America, the leftist New York Times joined their open apology letters with their prediction article “The Future Is Italy, And It’s Bleak”, wherein they fearfully exclaim:
“If this is to end in fire, then we should all burn together”.
These ominous words aren’t from an apocalyptic poem: They’re from a politician’s memoir. Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the far-right Brothers of Italy party
And not just in Italy.
For example, the Vox party in Spain, a far-right force steeped in apologia for the Franco regime that has risen to 20 percent in the polls, regards Ms. Meloni as an inspiration.
Appearing at a Vox campaign event in June, Ms. Meloni neatly encapsulated the contours of their shared politics, thundering in Spanish, “Yes to secure borders! No to mass immigration!”
The speech — which reached its crescendo with Ms. Meloni shouting, “Yes to our civilization! And no to those who want to destroy it!” — could well have been given by Marine Le Pen, whose National Rally is now the chief force on the French right.
Perhaps we will not all burn together in the fire.
But if the far right takes over the government, in Italy or elsewhere, some of us surely will.
As it stands right now folks, and it doesn’t matter if you like it or not, you are now standing smack dab on the front lines and are an actual combatant in the greatest civilization war of our time—and as in all wars, there will be destruction, horror beyond imagination, shifting alliances, unexpected battles, unforeseen leaders emerging, and, without any doubt, casualties and death.
For those of you not acquainted with war, and as every military commander will tell you, the most crucial weapon you need to have is honest and truthful intelligence.
And that’s what the Dear Sisters, and those like them, are to you in this war…your main intelligence asset!
Your godless socialist enemies know this fact, which is why they have been unrelentingly attacking and destroying everyone standing in their way, and is why, RIGHT NOW, you need to start supporting the Dear Sisters, or others like them, so truth and facts can keep flowing.
And it’s this simple folks, if every one of you reading this gives just $20, the Dear Sisters can stay in this fight against these socialist demons whose ultimate goal is to destroy you and the nations you love.
Of course, you can always turn away and accept defeat, but before you do, please weigh the absolutely certain alternative Orwell warned you about: “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever”..
