(Jun. 11, 2020) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. George Floyd’s death could have been a teaching moment, as in ‘Thou shall not steal,’ but the focus was on bad cops instead. And then somehow destroying any connection to the past was attacked, like the movie ‘Gone with the Wind’ and toppling statues. And that got us to thinking: is there a connection between us erasing our past and Islam erasing theirs? And for the answers we’ve come to Professor Zorkophsky at his rather nice office here at the university. So, Professor, what do you think?”

“I think my laser beam conveyor contraption needs oil or something. And, Roving, you can call me ‘Zork’ as long as we’re in my nice office. Now, to answer your question: is there a connection between us destroying our past and the Taliban blowing up the Buddhas of Bamyan? The short answer is ‘yes.’”

“And the long answer?”

“The long answer is that there is a connection, at least as far as denial is an accepted trait of insanity, which it is. Here, let me give you an example: little children believe that if they close their eyes and can’t see anyone, neither can anyone see them.”

“But they grow out of it.”

“Yes, they do. Now take this latest craze, this denying the past:  it is usually reserved for the victors to write the past.”

“So what happened?”

“So what happened is that we lost, but we don’t know it yet.”

“So we’re the ones in denial?”

“Well, yes, but we’re not the crazy ones, you understand. Those who achieve victory can be as loony as a bat.”

“But I’m not understanding something.”

“I know what you’re going to say: ‘If we’re so smart, how come we lost?’ We lost because we forgot the most important rule of survival: actions speak louder than words; lip service is meaningless; and if you believe in the lie, you deserve whatever happens.”

“So what lie did we believe in?”

“We believed that Islam is a religion and if we treated people with respect they would do the same to us.”

“Boy, were we ever wrong. Do you think we have a chance — I mean, does Western Civilization have a chance to make it to the year 3000?”

“No way; you see, the forces of ignorance are always stronger than the forces of enlightenment, for enlightenment takes work whereas ignorance take no effort whatsoever to achieve, and for proof look no further than the Black Lives Matter movement and the Dems and the RINOs in Congress today.”

“But we made it this far.”

“No, we haven’t made it this far. They made it this far.”

“But we must be able to do something.”

“Of course we can do something, but we won’t because we haven’t the will, and by the time we get the will, well, it may be too late.”

“You said ‘may be.’ So there’s some hope for us?”

“Some. But it gets even worse. Everyone knows by now that the Covid-19 flu strain isn’t as deadly as advertised, so how come we have all this advertising about masks? And they sneak in ‘global warming’ whenever they can, as if there’s a direct connection between your not wearing a mask and the planet dying.”

“I’ve noticed that.”

“But have you made the connection between ‘custom masks’ and burqas? Have you made the connection between us erasing our past and what The Taliban did to Palmyra? Do you see a difference, because I sure don’t. And that’s what I’m talking about: Creeping Sharia invading our minds without our knowing it: subliminal stimuli is alive and well, believe it.”

“Aren’t you just a little bit paranoid? Maybe suffering from Islamophobia?”

“Look, if there’s one thing to have learned from the Holocaust, it’s this: if somebody says they’re going to kill you, believe them.”

“I’m sorry to cut this conversation short, but we’ve run out of time and so, on behalf of the crew and Zork, this is your Roving Reporter (RR) wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”

Amarillo by Morning” (2:54)

  1. “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a socialist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

  2. Over time I have noticed many enemies of America being welcomed to our Nation and praised for their culture and diversity without showing any signs of assimilating into American culture, learning to speak English and becoming Americans. They are protected by people who call those who expect newcomers to assimilate all sorts of names such as, racist, xenophobic, judgmental, white nationalist, etc., etc. This is very effective on millions of Americans who appear to agree that protecting their own culture and lifestyle is unfair to anyone who wants to come here for any reason. The obvious intent of those insults is to turn America into what our enemies could not do by defeating us militarily…..but can do from the inside using the freedoms Americans are provided by our Constitution. They have largely been effective at doing that. Paying attention, using logic and common sense…..which unfortunately are all in short supply would have enabled enough Americans to defend our nation to stop the invasion early-on and insure our future as a Constitutional Republic. Unfortunately, millions of Americans were ambivalent and living in their own little self-important world, believing the world revolved around their endless smart phone conversations detailing their every move as something worthy of displaying on the internet. Narcissism grew like never before.
    …I am not saying there are not plenty of Americans who are willing to continue the fight for their future.., but I am saying the chances of actually winning are IMO becoming less with each passing day………
