The Ethnic Excuse

Paving the way for Taking Taiwan…

(Originally posted 030314)

Excusing a Nation’s Projection of Power in order to “protect” Ethnic Groups has been used since Force was invented.

In the United States we are told, repeatedly, that Ethnicity does not matter… yet we’ve abandoned the Supremacy of the Individual and actively Demonstrated Race Does matter in our Hiring, Higher education admissions and Legal practices every day.

So how can we see it as a Ridiculous Reason to Invade another country?

Ethnic and Racial differences remain ingrained in the “Enlightened” European mind.  Racism is rampant and accepted.  These are the very same Europeans we are told we must emulate by Our Progressive Elitist class of Politicians.  (Yes, I’m referring to John Kerry et al.)  The very Europeans whom we are told have it all figured out.  The very Europeans who are surprised that anti-Semitism is exhibited not from “the far right” but by everyday “Liberal” people.

But the most interesting aspect is They see this Excuse being used by Putin as Reasonable, even Logical.  Protecting One’s Racial Heritage is as common as Hating the Other person’s.

Of course, this leads to problems.  Very serious problems.  It always has.

Once You accept this Excuse for Force as valid, as a Certain Harvard Russian Studies Professor has… sadly, you must look and see Who’s in the On-Deck position.

The most Obvious?

Taiwan.

Followed by some other minor players… like Nepal, Moldova, Slovakia, the Baltic States, Quebec, South Korea, Kashmir, the list is endless…

I know, Canada wouldn’t be upset about Quebec.  They would probably welcome handing off the corruption and crumbling infrastructure to the French for while, until they gave up and handed it back.

But the point is We are Allowing a Precedent to be set.  How do you argue that National Sovereignty has any meaning when you fail to support those Nations you Promised to support should it be challenged?  We have already ceded an Ideological High Ground by sacrificing Ideology based on Freedom and Liberty of the Individual.  So What’s left?  Our Word?  What is that worth?

Nothing.

The Chinese Leadership are not stupid, they see clearly what is being illustrated by Putin’s efforts.

And I don’t find it a coincidence that Taiwan was not permitted to fly their flag during the Sochi Olympics.

Frankly, If I were sitting in Taiwan right now I’d be looking for the closest container vessel headed south.  Right Friggin’ now.

If you still don’t get it, it’s a 1936 redux.

Godwin’s Law be damned.

Hitler took most of Europe using the “We must Protect Ethnic Germans.” as his broadcasted excuse.  Actually he was stripping the resources of those countries for his own use… but that doesn’t Play in Peoria.  So he went with Uniting German’s.  Just sounds nicer.

We are not seeing anything New here.

And the latest Non-Aggression Pact between China and Russia simply assures both parties they will not have to reserve any troops for a second front.  It just makes things easier… having to worry about one less thing when you want to focus on taking stuff you think should be yours.

The question I have is why do we let Appeasers run our country?  (It’s a rhetorical question… They sound “nice” so we put them in charge.  It’s the “If we’re only more friendly” argument that passes for reason in the Visualize Whirled Peas circle.  It’s also an ongoing effort to repress the past lessons or attributing those events to lesser humans who happened to be in charge at the time.  This belief is often spoken in the words “That could never happen today.”)

What’s interesting is, it’s as if Putin’s Generals are saying “You know Vlad, That Austrian Guy with the silly mustache had it right… he just got in a hurry.”.  (There has been a question posed regarding Bush’s inaction on Putin’s invasion of Georgia and if that made Bush seem weak.  Yes.  It did.  But the question was offered up as moral relativity giving our current Administration’s inaction.  Sorry, but it was weakness on display under Bush just as it’s weakness on display under Obama.  It doesn’t matter who was displaying it.)

If I were leading what must now be considered only a “Resistance Movement” in Ukraine I would be finding every camera I could and begging as loudly as possible for U.S. and British help.  But it has become so fashionable for Europeans to blame their problems on the United States over the last several decades that it places them in an awkward position and makes it nearly impossible to overtly ask for our help.  Their ego may be their undoing.

This must come as a relief to the current Administration.

Those in charge will do anything to prevent the perception of this being an “East vs. West” thing.  And they will certainly not entertain anything as foolish as “Good vs. Evil”.

So What Do You Do when you pretty much agree with the Guy moving his troops across Europe?

We’re doing it.

We’ll be doing more of it as we watch Taiwan get “Protected”.

But of course, that could never happen today.

(I have intentionally used Race and Ethnicity interchangeably.  When it comes to the sacrifice of the Individual in favor of Balkanization they are the same thing.)

Hillary and I Agree on Something…

Or, In The Garden of Good and Evil.

Why do Progressives have such a difficult time with Good vs. Evil?

This came to mind after reading Hillary’s statement regarding Putin’s Actions resembling Hitler… A statement I happen to agree with on a number of levels, from the fostering of National Identity by positioning the World as an antagonist (Very Machiavellian) to Vlad’s demonstrated wish to Expand his countries borders under the guise of “protecting” Ethnic Russians.  I personally made such a statement several days ago.

But what I can’t quite reconcile is Why Now is a Prominent Democrat seeing it Clearly? Well, I can when it comes to Hillary 2016… But I still find it interesting as a larger question.  Hillary First…

So Why would Mrs. Clinton suddenly find Putin’s Socialist/Fascist Behavior to be Hitleresque?

There are exactly Two reasons.

A.  It’s election time and she knows the rest of us find Putin’s behavior repugnant. It’s always good to be on the same side of stuff as the people whom you want voting for you.

B.  It’s yet another attempt to separate the behavior of Fascists from the “wholesome, for your own good, because we care about you” Democrat Socialism.

But What about the Rank and File Socialists?  How do They deal with Putin’s actions?

For decades the Left in this country has faced difficult Positions to Champion.

They have made Excuses for what is demonstrably the Single most Destructive Ideology the planet has ever known in terms of Human Life or Pointed a finger at the only Economic Paradigm, Free Market Capitalism, which has lifted Billions out of Poverty, Saved Lives and Protected the Planet then Screamed “Exploitation”.

Every moment of every day Liberals must defend the very Ideology which has wrought Death and Destruction of all that is Good and then blame Sociaty’s Ill on Society itself.  This fact explains their difficulty with Good and Evil when they try to identify it.  It explains why they find themselves on “The Same Side of History” as Lenin, Mao, Stalin, Chavez, Castro, Guevara, Stalin, Ho Chi Min, Pol Pot, Mugabe, FDR, etc. etc. etc.  Their excuses have necessarily been born of Moral Relativity, Pragmatism and preservation of Power.

The Horror’s practiced by the above Leaders, and Millions of their Followers, must always be excused with the Good intentions which precipitated them or the Failure of the Individual.  The innate flaws of Man must be personalized and frozen… then isolated in order to not find Responsibility in the Ideology… in Themselves.

The Forced Failures of Socialist Planners is excused by blaming Individuals who are not smart enough to understand the benefits, Ephemeral acts of the Universe whose Consciousness fails to recognize the Brilliance of Those Who Proclaimed the Prescience of knowing the way forward for the Unwashed Masses, or Both.

As far as Hillary seeing Putin for what he is, She remains a Socialist.

Hillary longs to be the Leader of Those Who Make Excuses for Evil.  To Be a Liberal… She Must.

While It’s Interesting that One Who Champions Force recognizes It as Evil…

Unless a Change of Mind Occurs and That person decides to Champion the Individual, in other words What is Good,

It just isn’t Very Valuable.

Hillary may see Putin’s Actions as Evil… but just can’t really explain Why.
