In Seven Months America Went from the Freest Country in the World to a Repressive and Frightening Place
7-18-21, Victor Davis Hanson* -- Nations have often gone mad in a matter of months; the French in 1793, China in 1966 and the USA 2020-2021. America is seeing absurdities never witnessed in our modern history. Madness, not politics, defines it. Law has been rendered meaningless and left-wing political agendas justify any means necessary to achieve them.
Currently American citizenship is mere residency as two million people are anticipated to illegally cross the southern border over 12-months. One does not arrive as a guest in a foreign country and immediately violate the laws of his host—unless one holds those laws in contempt. After opening the U.S. southern border to pseudo-political refugees storming into Texas, now the Biden Administration is terrified that thousands of real refugees might come to Miami from Cuba turning Florida 'RED.' And health standards applied to US citizens do not apply to invading foreigners; like screening for Covid virus or demanding vaccination while knocking on Americans doors ...
There exists a mini-industry of internet videos depicting young people in San Francisco, CA, disproportionately African American males, stealing luxury goods from Nieman-Marcus or clearing shelves from a Walgreens. It’s done with impunity as the law won’t prosecute if merchandise is under $950.  Chicago has turned into Tombstone or Dodge City as shootings and killings go unabated. A subculture has developed among Americans, of passing information: where in the country it’s safe and where it’s not?
Universities in America the Ivy League or major state university admissions are no longer based on proportional representation in the context of just affirmative action. Now grades, test scores and “activities” of the white and Asian male college applicants are growing less relevant or accepted. Only “privileged” white males with sports skills, connections, or families who give lots of money are exempt from the new racial reparation quotas.
The 'critical race theory' [aka anti white people] craze is reaching peak ‘woke,’ [aka social awareness] or is already on the downslope. It's not just a drain on the productive sector, but will insidiously destroy it's goal is to ensure a timid and banal orthodoxy.
Americans during this entire descent in madness sighed, “Well, at least there is the military left.” However, John Brennan had all but wrecked the CIA and James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page et weaponized the FBI. But the military was still a bastion of traditional, nonpartisan service, whose prime directive was to defend the country. Is it still?
Finally, almost all Americans used to agree that the U.S. Constitution was unique and guaranteed personal freedom in a way the United Nations charter could not. Dozens of fascist, Communist, totalitarian, and authoritarian regimes, usually the majority of governments on earth, ensured that any General Assembly or U.N. committee ruling would parrot the views of its illiberal and corrupt members. Not anymore.
US Sec of State Antony Blinken has invited the U.N. to assess whether the United States meets global standards of justice! That’s like asking China to adjudicate the conditions in U.S. prisons.
The public has had enough; now for the first time Citizens will ask why are:
In December 2019 America was the freest country in the world and by July 2021 she has become a repressive frightening place. It went not so much hard-Left as stark-raving mad. It’s not workable and millions will collectively decide they have no choice but to push back concluding:
“In the 233rd year of our republic, we tens of millions are not going to cede freedom of thought and expression to thousands of Maoists. Sorry, no can do.”
