The French Revolution 2.0 By Chris Knight
Comparisons are being made that the BLM movement is like the early stages of the French Revolution, designed to tear down the old order. This will be interesting, since it is unclear what could possibly hold the present cesspool together. And the parasites are quite likely to deprive themselves of their host:
“The Black Lives Matter movement may be on its way to becoming a mass movement similar to the French Revolution, Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson said. In an interview with author and conservative radio show host Eric Metaxas, Hanson cited glaring similarities between the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement and the French Revolution’s Jacobin dictatorship, which is known for its “reign of terror.” According to Hanson, the similarities between the two become even more apparent once their ideologies get inspected, noting that Black Lives Matter takes after the French Revolution’s values of “egalitarianism and fraternity,” which sought to change every aspect of the citizens’ life. “Everything is on the table. I never imagined that NPR would be telling listeners to decolonize their library or there would be women to shave their heads so they wouldn’t have non-African American hair, or they wouldn’t privilege their whiteness,” Hanson said, describing the acts as reflective of “reeducation camp mentalities.” “That’s what we are witnessing now with this movement,” Hanson said, echoing statements he made during a prior appearance at Fox’s The Ingraham Angle. Hanson, during his Ingraham Angle appearance, noted that while Black Lives Matter had legitimate concerns regarding African-American issues during the early days following George Floyd’s death at the hands of a White police officer, the movement has since devolved and become what he called a forum for “blanket condemnation” of law enforcement and authorities. “…All of a sudden people were cutting their hair and saying ‘I’m not black.’ Children were accusing their parents of racism or suddenly it was ‘defund the police’ or you have to remove books from your bookshelf if they display inordinate attention to white authors,” Hanson said, referring to the social justice-related trends that have since emanated from the movement. “You’ll never be able to satisfy the iteration as they get more radical,” Hanson told host Laura Ingraham. This, Hanson said, stems in part from globalization and multiculturalism, noting that there are approximately 55 million people in the country who, due to their being born and raised abroad, may not be familiar with traditional American values.”
There are also clear links to China’s cultural revolution, and given evidence of China’s involvement, that is also a fertile place to start drawing connections:
““Black Lives Matter” has become America’s version of China’s Cultural Revolution — a radical, youth-led purge of the vestiges of traditional culture and authority within a one-party state. In this case, the one-party system is the “blue archipelago” of Democrat-run cities, most of which have not had Republican leaders for decades, and likely never will again. But whereas China’s radicals helped Mao consolidate power, Black Lives Matter may destabilize the entire country. The most striking similarity between the two movements is the ritual humiliation of individuals seen to represent “the system.” Mobs of demonstrators have marched up to police and demanded that they kneel with them, or to them. Some officers, in a bid to defuse tensions, have obliged. But the protests are not satisfied with gestures of solidarity. They crave the humiliation of authority — such as the sight of a Massachusetts police chief lying face-down on the ground on Saturday. One particularly disturbing spectacle was the effort by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey to appease a large group of protesters on Saturday. When the mayor declined to commit to abolishing the police department, he was chased away. The sight of the democratically-elected leader of a major American city being forced to flee an angry crowd was a warning that Black Lives Matter has moved far beyond its original grievance, and is demanding total obedience. These events recall the public humiliations of the Cultural Revolution, when intellectuals, dissidents, and Communist Party officials who had fallen out of favor were paraded before jeering crowds and made to wear signs confessing their supposed crimes before being banished from society. Today, we are watching similarly cultish scenes of white citizens singling themselves out by race and confessing their sins of “privilege,” taking oaths of allegiance, on their knees, to the new movement. This confessional pantomime was taken to its theological conclusion on Saturday, when white police joined local clergy in washing the feet of black pastors, “echoing the Biblical story of how Jesus washed his disciples feet to express humility and love,” the Daily Mail explained. The new “woke” culture demands prostration and self-effacement. When Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian resigned his board seat, he asked that he be replaced by a black person. It was a request that, if followed, would violate employment law and the Constitution itself. Yet he was praised by the movement. In contrast, National Football League quarterback Drew Brees was made to apologize for defending the American flag — and to beg for his career by attacking the president.”
And, that would explain how anti-white militia are being permitted to march, much like a Chinese military parade:
“An anti-white violent terror organization, the “Not F**king Around Coalition” (NFAC), is planning an armed rally throughout the city of Louisville, Ky on Saturday. Far Left Watch reports that NFAC leader John Fitzgerald Johnson, aka “Grand Master Jay,” has proposed the replacement of the U.S. with a black ethnostate established by racist militant action. During a recent terror demonstration at Stone Mountain, Ga., Grand Master Jay and his armed militia harassed white motorists while demanding slavery reparations.”
This will end, but it is not going to end well, in a land full of guns.
