This is a continuation of sorts to yesterday's post about the implosion of the current world empire headed by the United States of America. It's a short post, but don't let that detract from the many things that could be said about this subject. It's just that I lack the time to do this justice, which is why I've collected 5 short videos dealing with what I believe to be the main drivers behind America's current crisis.
One thing binds all linked videos together, and that is that, as per usual, the brunt of the negative effects of the crisis will come down on the average citizen and the poor. What will become clear by watching the videos, if it wasn't abundantly obvious already, is that the political left is failing hard to live up to its traditional role as champions for the people in general and the working class in particular. It's sad that a hardcore leftist like myself has to admit that the political parties that are supposed to represent my side of the political spectrum, not just in America but here in Europe as well, have let go of the economical populism and only peddle in woke symbolism. This first video is a perfect example of that sad development. Because the Democrats are nothing more than corporate lackeys, they vote with the Republicans on almost every economical, financial or foreign policy issue; there is no real difference anymore between the two American parties, so they've both degenerated into virtue signalling; social justice on the side of the Democrats, and law, order and security on the Republican side.
The Tweets That Broke Kyle
Corruption, both legal and illegal, is rife on both sides as well. Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 310 (2010), was a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States concerning campaign finance. The Court held that the free speech clause of the First Amendment prohibits the government from restricting independent expenditures for political communications by corporations, including nonprofit corporations, labor unions, and other associations; this is straight from Wikipedia, it's what I mean by legal corruption and is the main reason why both parties are beholden to the wishes of big corporations, and why none of them, Republicans as well as Democrats, ever vote for measures that would benefit people like you and I. Trump however is corrupt to the extreme and is very open about it, which greatly adds to the distrust from average citizens towards politics and other democratic institutions like the mainstream press and media. The loss of belief in democratic institutions will hasten the fall of the empire greatly.
Trump Campaign Laundering Millions to His Own Family
Speaking of mainstream media, let's be clear about the fact that there are no leftist voices there. None whatsoever; it's all a bunch of corporate propaganda constantly misinforming their viewer base. Without their help, a dimwit clown like Donald Trump could never have been elected into the Oval Office. And because all traditionally leftist channels have shifted to the right, CNN, MSNBC and CBS included, the traditional right wing channels have now shifted to the extreme right. This next video, as well as the one following it, are prime examples of this frightening development; it's as if fascism is welcomed with open arms by these charlatans... First, here's a right wing host calling for Trump to start shooting protesters:
Right-Wing Host Calls For Mass Murder Of Protesters
And here's another host, Fox Businesses' Maria Bartiromo, asking the Secretary of Homeland Security why they don't arrest local politicians who don't act firmly enough against those pesky leftist protesters:
Maria Bartiromo Casually Suggests Fascism
Last but not least, this video is a bit longer but that's justified I believe, because it comments on how an innocent peaceful protester is shot down and killed by a right wing terrorist, and how the Clown In Chief retweets fake news blaming the victim; I believe that here every aspect of the rapid decline of the "land of the free" comes together in one tragic event, the clownish fascist leadership, the misinformation in the media, the violence of right wing reactionaries and the victimhood of peaceful, law abiding working class citizens. The abyss of dark times is closing in at a rapid pace, and I don't know if there's any way left to avoid the plunge down...
