So, right on cue, with the head of BLM accused of financial misconduct and the Chauvin Show-Trial winding down, the Elites have turned their stormtroopers loose upon the city streets again. The Media found another gentle giant---one of many such cases in a typical city weekend---who was shot and killed by police serving a warrant. And so, by Elite decision, America needs another Summer of Rage to finish off any small and midsize business that's managed to survive the last round of riots, lock-downs, unequal taxation, wealth transfers, etc.
It almost seems like the Elites are working from a playbook of Tried and True Formulas for Distracting Ameroboob Attention. Just like the Entertainment Media has about a dozen scripts that it recycles with different characters and situations, the News/Infotainment Media runs the same narratives with different faces. Basically, it all runs along these lines:
Script 1: Sex Scandal, homo good, straight bad.
Script 2: Scam-demic, masks good, vax good, objecting bad.
Script 3: Systemic Racism, Reverse Discrimination good, White Man bad.
Script 4: Russia bad, China bad, Orange Man bad, Corporate America good.
Script 5: Throw in some Climate Change, Virtual Signalling, or Junk Science in between previous scripts; but make them short like infomercials and not full-length dramas.
Just like movies go 2 hours and TV shows for 1, the news cycle seems to run its course and we need a either a new crisis or a new normal based on the formula. And just like television shows routinely have plots without the slightest relation to last week's episode, so the Infotainment Industry can change 'narratives' more or less at will. Only a year ago, for example, police were among "our front-line heroes" and the "settled science" was that masks were useless and that we shouldn't listen to anybody peddling unproven and untested treatments for the Coronavirus. As recently as 2014, nobody thought that being a Satanist, a homosexual deviant, or a pothead was 'cool' and 'trendy'. In 2010, the Tea Party on the Right and the Occupy Movement on the Left were protesting the political and social power of a few moneyed oligarchs; today, the Ameroboob celebrates 'woke' Corporatism and the Great Reset without a second (or even a first) thought.
There is a difference between ignorance and stupidity. Ignorance is often just as bad in its consequences, but it is curable. An ignorant person is someone who simply doesn't know any better, often because he's been disinformed by someone in authority: parents, schools, government, media, etc. Racism (the real kind) is a good example. Many of our ancestors believed in it because the "settled science" of the day knew nothing of DNA and taught that character traits were carried in the bloodlines. Thomas Huxley, an early promoter of the Evolutionary Theory, wrote in 1866 in the aftermath of the U.S. Civil War:
"While it may be true that some Negroes are superior to some White men; no one who is cognizant of the facts can seriously believe that the Negro is the equal of---let alone superior to---his White counterparts." Huxley went on to state that Emancipation was socially "an attempt to transform Negroes from well-fed animals to pauperized humans." Many of us today don't realize just how much the global intellectual elite laughed at "the American obsession with universal human rights" back then. Many of us today also forget that, despite the persistent myth of 'systemic racism,' the U.S. was historically at the forefront of abolishing racism. Slavery was never legal in Pennsylvania or Rhode Island. By the time the Constitution was ratified, it was banned in New York, New Jersey, and all of the New England states. None of the Northern States allowed it. California abolished slavery when it became a state in 1849. At its height, only 11 states practiced it, and even in Virginia, Arkansas, and Tennessee many county and local ordinances forbade owning slaves. We haven't been perfect, but we've never been "the most racist and oppressive society in history," as the 'settled science' of today teaches.
Once faced with actual facts, ignorance dissipates and the misguided thinkers become wiser. Stupidity, in contrast, isn't misguided thinking. Stupidity comes from the inability or unwillingness to think in the first place. The new wave of riots is a perfect example of that. The MSM reports that a Black guy gets shot by a White policeman and that means that it's time to run outside and unleash all of your rage upon society.
None of these pinheads have the slightest idea why they are outside making fools of themselves. The fact that they don't know---and don't care to know---is what makes them fools in the first place. This is simply a conditioned reflex, like Pavlov's famous experiment where he taught dogs to experience hunger at the ringing of a bell. In at least one case the boobs heard 'black man shot by policeman' and were out rioting, looting, and demanding an end to 'racist policing' before it came out that the police officer involved was himself Black. And, of course, none of these goofballs can explain exactly how all of this mayhem is supposed to end Racial Injustice---even assuming that such a thing actually exists. In the aftermath of all of this will be an equal display of stupidity with other fools kneeling, bowing, apologizing, etc. Trying to reason with such people is practically useless since their minds only react to external stimuli and their thought processes have been atrophied through continual disuse.
