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.)

More Than Half of Russians want the Soviet Union back…

A Pew Poll, recently completed, reflects this desire.

I don’t know what else to say.

I’m simply Sad.

But when you offer only a distinction without a difference what do you expect?

We are no longer the shining city on the hill.

I’m keeping this short because I need to find my bottle of Bourbon.

The Individual is Lost.

Not even the Fed Chair can describe what Governing Theory we live under…  The Federal Reserve Chair…

I just don’t know what to say.

So I will drink on it.

May be cry a little… for what’s in store.


Is Russia Accusing US of Having a Foreign Policy?

How Dare Them!  Who do They think They are?

If so, I DEMAND TO KNOW WHAT IT IS!

Frankly,

Someone should check the accounts of Organizing For America and see if they have accepted a paid position From Vladimir Putin.

This latest Flurry of remarks from Russia sounds so Familiar.

We already know that Ketchum is on the payroll

So why the Consternation over What Vlad is saying about The United States and Specifically President Obama?

The Rhetoric is the same we’ve heard over the last decade from Our Homegrown Leftists Who are Now in Control.

Why is Putin a “Bad Guy” for simply repeating it?

Is it his pointing out that the Stated Goal of The Obama Administration to reduce Influence of The U.S. on the World Stage has been Achieved?  (It’s worth noting this genuine Achievement stands alone for this Administration.)

Could it be that Putin knows the President of The United States is “thin-skinned”?  Is that why Putin’s use of “Prankster”, the Russian equivalent of “Silly Goose”, to describe Obama makes news?

Is it stunning that a Socialist would goad an external Enemy in order to Win Points with his Population?

Is it Really a surprise to have a Dictator use an Enemy’s own words to illustrate Their hypocrisy?

When you live in a World of Say Anything… and You’re rewarded for it… with Elected Office…

When Words matter more than Actions…

When you and your Enemies don’t really disagree on Anything… Except Who’s in Control…

And When You’ve made it Your Stated Mission to Not Be In Control…

What Do You Expect?

What Do We Expect?

(If not much else but Tanks… The Russians do have Century Old Brilliance when it comes to Writers.  Their Literature stands up to the Best The World has to offer.  Do not think for One Moment that Putin is a Fool.  He is not.  I would bet that if You compared the bookcases of Putin and Obama you would not be surprised… or be forced make up excuses.  If you’re going to Be a Hypocrite what grounds do you have to become Upset when someone points it out?  Or is That Too a Double Standard where only certain people can, and Other’s can’t.  “It’s an American Thing… You wouldn’t Understand.”  and No, It doesn’t matter how many “American Friends” you have.  Hear the Dog Whistle?)

Putin knows exactly What he is Doing.

Obama has Opened Himself Up to Putin’s Accusations through years of “Just Words”…  The Fact That Putin is doing exactly what he is accusing Obama of Doing makes complete sense.  If you don’t get it whip out your trusty copy of The Prince.  Read it on your own time.  A Dictator doing Dictator things should never be a surprise… yet it seems to be just that to Our elected Officials.

But There IS a Reason for this Consternation.  When Diplomats are put in charge they believe “rules” matter to everyone else the way they matter to them.  They believe Words and Feelings mean something.  They believe Everyone just wants to get along… to Compromise… to Work Together… They deny reality.

All of this should serve as a Wake-Up Call.

What Do We Stand For?

What are the Differences between Us and Them?

What exactly is American Exceptionalism and Why do We not seem to Know?

We are not just Weak… We are unable.


Novaya Sovietsky

Why is the United States bowing before the New Soviet?

This is a surprising simple question with a surprising simple answer.

Why the United States will do nothing to confront The Rise of The New Soviet is because our current Administration, and more frighteningly our entire Bureaucracy, share the same Base Ideology.

That’s it.

How can you possible fight a Battle on Ideological grounds when there is no difference in Ideology? We are seeing this clearly right here at home.  We are seeing it within our own political battles between the parties.  We are being presented the Distinctions without the Differences on a Daily basis. Now we are seeing how that translates to Foreign Policy.  “Just Concede!”

But what are you conceding?

Let me ask you folks, what is it that the United States stands for?

Free Market Capitalism?

Freedom and Liberty of the Individual?

Property Rights?

Privacy Rights?

Freedom of Religion?

Freedom to Choose?

None of the Above?….  So What Exactly?

If you can’t answer this you’re not alone.  Officials at the highest level in our Government cannot provide a cogent answer to this question and then point to any of their Actions which prove it.  As far as those in charge are concerned the forced implementation of Socialism overseas is nothing different from what is being achieved by current Domestic Policy.  It’s for their own good… They look over the horizon and see no problems.

In fact, its Good that Citizens of The World realize their Governments will be Weaponized and used against them.  It provides Order!

In the back of their minds Our Homegrown Leftist-Progressives are hoping Putin gets it right this time…  and if he doesn’t, they are hoping to get it right here at home.

Georgia has fallen, Ukraine is next.

Eastern Europe should be very concerned knowing there is no one remaining in the world who Champion’s Individual Rights and Personal Freedom.

They must feel as lonely as we do.

The Enlightened Age of Man and Nation of Laws is over.

We are Witnessing the Dawn of the Mob… The Dawn of Democratic Socialism.

(BTW: A couple of Weeks ago while watching the Opening Ceremonies of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games I stated the only thing missing from the Show was a groups of “volunteers” belting out the International in Russian.  Well, Putin one-upped me… The Closing Ceremonies provided the World with a group of “Volunteer Children” to belt out the International in Russian.  Well played Vlad… Well Played.)
