Poor Ned.............. He stands out most as it relates to the subject line.

Great read. It is as if the author wrote it with Paoli, NJ, Royal and now LB in mind.

Woke professionals acting as the indentured servants of a fearful oligarchy have become everything we were told to fear from Trumpism


This is not simply a matter of hypocrisy. It is only by painting themselves as victims fighting against their oppressors that college-educated professionals can rationalize their own authoritarianism. The cult of victimhood conjures the specter of fascism, misogyny, or white nationalism in order to justify blatantly repressive measures. This is why, for example, the professional class consistently portrayed unvaccinated people as Trump supporters even though in many major cities vaccine passports mostly excluded Democrat-voting Black residents from indoor establishments. Under the guise of combatting anti-vax extremism, woke liberal politicians embraced segregation and the exact kind of “systemic racism” they claimed to oppose. While considering themselves to be on the side of righteousness and rationality, commentators called for hospitals to reject unvaccinated patients, and some even celebrated their deaths. This is precisely the type of punitive, regressive tendency that progressives warned would be a consequence of Trump’s election.

They long for the Chinese model where a limited number of rich elites prosper and the masses are their slave force. Hence the great push for immigration from Latin America. They would love to just do away with the middle class and specifically white Americans. We ask too many questions and own guns

And what is Xi? An oppressive dictator. Say the wrong thing, and off to jail you go. That's exactly what the left wants.
