Democracy is government by, of and for the deformed, immoral, and defective maggot-folk. Now that I’ve shot through all the euphemism rounds, I’ll tell you how I really feel. I don’t really feel any different. Democracy is bound within the constraints of a negative gradient. The worst and the trashiest always win in the end. There is a three step algorithm by which any Democracy anywhere will be conquered by the trash pandas of any society’s dung heap who will then gleefully pour Socrates the hemlock.
You will always be ordered to celebrate diversity like a North Korean missile parade, but will never be encouraged to celebrate your own remarkable whiteness. I always hate people who overcompensate in how much they claim to love Mystery-Meat Big Brother. They remind me of this. I disown every last Shaun King and Rachael Dolezal. Let them go live in the hood off their EBT cards. Once you’ve convinced any sizeable portion of a majority to emulate you because they aren’t jack-shite, you have begun their inevitable conquest and enslavement.
Unlike Priapic Cadillac-Whale Edward Moore Kennedy, Brett Kavanaugh must be above suspicion. Unlike Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avanetti, we must not question the fundamental dignity, or ever invade the privacy of an accomplished professional. Nor should we doubt the decency of an honorable working man like Rodney King. Doing so is a vile act of politics. But you, on the other hand must be perfect.
It isn’t intended to really raise questions. It is intended to disqualify and dispossess. It only works in a democracy. It only works when people are no longer allowed to effectively redress deliberate and targeted dishonor and scandal. You never have to prove anything, and the target never gets to speak out on his own behalf. Also, decent and right-minded people would never involve themselves is arguing on behalf of somebody accused of such vile things. Never you mind whether the accusations bear any degree of truth.
The end result of this is to chase any decent human being who values both reputation or privacy out of the Political Arena unless they have a very high threshold for fighting off slander. I think about 99 unpleasant things about Nikki Haley, “backseat slut-piggy” isn’t one of them. Nevertheless, this was trotted out in order to chase her out of the South Carolina Governors Race. She won her race int he end, but sometimes it keeps people out of politics.
Selena Zito describes how it worked against Mitch Daniels.
In the spring of 2011, then-governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana announced he would not seek the Republican presidential nomination, ending months of excitement among conservatives around his possible run. His family’s reservations under the spotlight far outweighed any political pressure he may have been feeling, and he gracefully bowed out. His decision was a low point for conservatives hungry for that Midwestern sensibility and sharp wit that Daniels embodied. The former political adviser to Ronald Reagan and head of George W. Bush’s Office of Management and Budget, Daniels was a rock star in the conservative movement. But the Daniels family had a complicated past. He and his wife had married, divorced, and eventually remarried one another. Most people would have called that a happy ending. On social media, you can imagine, that story would have been told very differently.
So Mitch Daniels had a choice to make. Serve your party and country or remain loyal to your wife. This is studied and deliberate. This is why scandal is done. If you can’t beat them, if you can’t do it better, you disqualify anyone who would make you feel the need to pull a bag over your head and go screw off. This will work on a wider scale. Every time you chase off a good person, there is one less good person to defend the remnant.
It gains greater positive feedback until there is no talent or quality left. You are ruled by Maduro and you deserve to be. Unless, of course, this time is really different. If it is, then the blessed downfall of our unhinged demotic mob rule by turd-chucking may finally be on the horizon.
