Why they attack Cervantes and Lincoln



Matt Taibbi of the Rolling Stone like many commentators is puzzled by the statuary Marxists selected to be toppled.

I was puzzled, too. Then I figured it out. Their reasoning makes sense in a Machiavellian way.

(LANGUAGE WARNING: LIBERALS ARE QUOTED.)

Taibbi wrote, "Much of America has watched in quizzical silence in recent weeks as crowds declared war on an increasingly incoherent succession of historical symbols. Maybe you nodded as Confederate general Albert Pike was toppled or even when Christopher Columbus was beheaded, but it got a little weird when George Washington was emblazoned with 'Fuck Cops' and set on fire, or when they went after Ulysses S. Grant, abolitionist Colonel Hans Christian Heg, Forward, (a seven-foot-tall female figure meant to symbolize progress), the Portland, Oregon Elk statue, or my personal favorite, the former slave Miguel de Cervantes, whose cheerful creations Don Quixote and Sancho Panza were apparently mistaken for reals and had their eyes lashed red in San Francisco."

Ah yes, Don Quixote, the symbol of hope in hopeless situations.

G.L. Ford of the Book & Film Review wrote, "Consider this passage from Don Quixote (in John Ormsby’s translation): 'Freedom, Sancho, is one of the most precious gifts that heaven has bestowed upon men; no treasures that the earth holds buried or the sea conceals can compare with it; for freedom, as for honor, life may and should be ventured; and on the other hand, captivity is the greatest evil that can fall to the lot of man.'

"This from a man who the Ottomans enslaved yet opposed the expulsion of the Moors from Spain, who saw freedom as every human being’s birthright, regardless of ethnicity or background. Perhaps those who desecrated his memorial might disagree with Cervantes regarding honor, and on anything to do with heaven. Perhaps they’d have complicated ideas about freedom vs. the collective. Yet if their own political message conflicts with his sentiment here, who needs it? They called the man a bastard, and splashed bloody red across his eyes. Whether they knew who he was or not, that constitutes an attack on literature per se. And an attack on literature is an attack not just on thought and creativity, but on the human spirit itself. So much, then, for celebrating Emancipation Day."

Ford is onto something.

Cervantes was not an innocent swept up in the madness of the mob.

He was a target because the freed slave is the biggest threat to the slavers. And make no mistake, Democrats want to enslave us. Post-Obama, they have dropped incrementalism in favor of an immediate overthrow of society.

Which means toppling statues.

Taibbi failed to see the logic.

He wrote, "Here’s how the Washington Post described a movement that targeted Spanish missionary Junipero Serra, Abraham Lincoln (a 'single-handed symbol of white supremacy,' according to UW-Madison students), an apple cider press sculpture, abolitionist Mathias Baldwin, and the first all-Black volunteer regiment in the Civil War, among others:
'Across the country, protesters have toppled statues of figures from America’s sordid past — including Confederate generals — as part of demonstrations against racism and police violence.'"
What the statues of Serra, Lincoln and the rest share in common is they are all white, or in the case of Shaw's all-black 54th Regiment, "acting white."

Confederate generals pose no threat to this godless mob. The mob dismisses them as fools and losers. Besides, they were all Democrats.

The real threat to the narrative of overthrowing an irredeemable white supremacist society are Lincoln and 300,000 other men who died in the Civil War to set 6 million black slaves free. There can be no good white people because that undermines the argument that all white people are evil.

The media sells it, and fools live the role.

Taibbi wrote, "It’s tragic that this even needs saying, but the sudden reinvention in the press of modern America as a Nazi apartheid state is as phony as the thousands of patriotic campaigns that occupied the news media previously. We’re witnessing an obscene malfunction of the elite messaging system.

"The people who run this country have run out of workable myths with which to distract the public, and in a moment of extreme crisis have chosen to stoke civil war and defame the rest of us – black and white – rather than admit to a generation of corruption, betrayal, and mismanagement."

But corruption, betrayal, and mismanagement are the goal. Communism — or any totalitarian government — is the ultimate in elitism. A few live at the top due to political connection. The last two democrat presidents entered the White House broke and left multi-millionaires 10 times over. Their idiot vice presidents also raked in millions.

Corruption, betrayal, and mismanagement pay well.

President Donald John Trump and 62 million voters shocked them on November 8, 2016, by reminding those in power of their own mortality. They fear the likely death of their culture of corruption, betrayal, and mismanagement in a second term.

Which is why in 2020 we have entered Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam dimension where white people are blue-eyed devils, and inferior beings to people of color.

The idea that you can marginalize a majority of the people in a society only seems impossible but Nazis were never more than 12% of Germany. There are a million communists in Red China -- less than 0.1% of the population.

The answer is to not fall for the traps set by racists. Instead, vote as if your life depends on it because your life really does depend on it. Ballots, not bullets. We did it in 2016, we will do it again in 2020 because we know if they win, we will all be treated like statues.

    1. In my more cynical moments I kinda like the attitude the Daleks from Dr. Who had towards enemies: 'EXTERMINATE!'

      Their current campaign is literally 'We will hint at thinking about promising to stop destroying everything you hold near and dear if Orange Man Bad goes and you give us total power over your lives. Trust us!'

      No.

    2. They have been trusted before and betrayed that trust.

      As you say, NO.

      I need to watch the old Dr. Who's before the writers got so bad they made it unwatchable.

    3. Just when I think I have enough bullets, the left convinced me I don’t. But I much prefer plan A.

  2. SUPERB: "But corruption, betrayal, and mismanagement are the goal. Communism — or any totalitarian government — is the ultimate in elitism. A few live at the top due to political connection.

    Matt Taibbi is now trying to make sense of the bonfire he helped erect and ignite for the past 25 years. His screeds about Trump in Rolling Stone before 2020 were excrement in blazing neon. Now he wonders. NOW. Too late, Matt. The left will have your head, without a doubt. All Mensheviks get theirs, eventually.

    1. Matt sold out.

      his 1st edition of griftopia pointed out that Obama care was unnecessary. all you had to do was eliminate the insurance industry antitrust exemption to stop the collusion, price fixing and preexisting conditions denials.

      that entire chapter disappeared from later editions.

      I was shocked. you'd think there was gambling going on in the back room.

  3. I believe you (and Taibbi et al) are being far too kind to the statue topplers and defacers. I doubt they had any idea who Cervantes was or any clear understanding besides crude and mistaken ones of the other statues they are toppling.

    1. Agreed. I don't think they care who or what any given statue represents. It's about terrorism pure and simple. Make the sheeple afraid of them.
      That Elk statue was our rally point before and after the Portland Marathon for many years. Now I will not even drive near downtown Portland if I have a choice about it. Since the terrorists are being aided and abetted by the lefty looney gummint of the city, it's obvious they don't want me anywhere near it.
      Watch out folks. You don't want to be anywhere near a major city this fall. If you have to be, keep yourself well armed and situational awareness in condition orange.

    2. They went to ALL STATUES ARE EVIL about five minutes after they started.
      When all the statues are done, they'll probably start on the business signs. McDonalds and their golden arches will become symbols of white supremacy.

  4. Don't let them manipulate you. If you're defending yourself against accusations of racism, you're not trying to win.

    Ballots yes, except that those who would enslave us are in charge of counting the ballots. What could go wrong?

  6. The immigrant vote will soon nullify your right to vote, if it hasn't already. This is the real problem. What we are seeing is not about black lives, or communism, or whatever. You've allowed yourself to be colonized (Thanks Republicans!) and the new occupiers are doing away with your history and laws and exploiting you as good colonizers should. It's happened a million times in history and it's the inevitable fate of those who lose their territory. The pseudo-conservative fantasy of "magic dirt" and the "American dream" (i.e., naked materialism) turning foreigners into Ozzie and Harriet has come a cropper.
