Quotable (#2)

From the what do you mean the usual methods have failed file:

But in doing so, Mr. Trump has also opened the door to assertions of white identity and resentment in a way not seen so broadly in American culture in over half a century, according to those who track patterns of racial tension and antagonism in American life.

…“I think what we really find troubling is the mainstreaming of these really offensive ideas,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, which tracks hate groups. “It’s allowed some of the worst ideas into the public conversation in ways we haven’t seen anything like in recent memory.”

They just do not get it. Or rather: they refuse to.

Civilization has its destroyers. These are those who are turned inward and, in selfishness, act for personal gain against the benefits of the tribe. In sane ages, people like Jonathan Greenblatt are exiled to northern Africa or Brazil and never heard from again.

In the meantime, it looks like Trump has just tuned in to the Caucasian view of the failure of diversity:

Following the shooting of two black men by white police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota and the subsequent shooting of five police officers by a black gunman in Dallas, negative views of race relations in the U.S. have risen to a level not seen since the 1992 Los Angeles riots that followed the Rodney King verdict. Now just 26 percent of Americans think race relations in the U.S. are mostly good – an 11 point drop from a year ago – while 69 percent say they are mostly bad.

For the last 70 years, the American political system has been banging the drum — that flatters women, near-whites and non-whites — that we can all get along as a big happy plurality. But as detractors pointed out, plurality means that no one gets what they need and everyone gets a compromise that favors the lowest common denominator.

Voters have no idea what they are doing, but when the results turn out bad, especially as bad as the last seven decades of liberalism have been, they know how to throw a tantrum.
