THE END OF IDENTITY POLITICS by by Victor Davis Hanson

The End Of Identity Politics

“Who are we? asked the liberal social scientist Samuel Huntington over a decade ago in a well-reasoned but controversial book. Huntington feared the institutionalization of what Theodore Roosevelt a century earlier had called “hyphenated Americans.” A “hyphenated American,” Roosevelt scoffed, “is not an American at all.” And 30 years ago, another progressive stalwart and American historian Arthur Schlesinger argued in his book The Disuniting of America that identity politics were tearing apart the cohesion of the United States.

What alarmed these liberals was the long and unhappy history of racial, religious, and ethnic chauvinism, and how such tribal ties could prove far stronger than shared class affinities. Most important, they were aware that identity politics had never proved to be a stabilizing influence on any past multiracial society. Indeed, most wars of the 20th century and associated genocides had originated over racial and ethnic triumphalism, often by breakaway movements that asserted tribal separateness. Examples include the Serbian and Slavic nationalist movements in 1914 against Austria-Hungary, Hitler’s rise to power on the promise of German ethno-superiority, the tribal bloodletting in Rwanda, and the Shiite/Sunni/Kurdish conflicts in Iraq.

The United States could have gone the way of these other nations. Yet, it is one of the few successful multiracial societies in history. America has survived slavery, civil war, the Japanese-American internment, and Jim Crow—and largely because it has upheld three principles for unifying, rather than dividing, individuals.

The first concerns the Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution, which were unique documents for their time and proved transcendent across time and space. Both documents enshrined the ideal that all people were created equal and were human first, with inalienable rights from God that were protected by government. These founding principles would eventually trump innate tribal biases and prejudices to grant all citizens their basic rights.

Second, given America’s two-ocean buffer, the United States could control its own demographic destiny. Americans usually supported liberal immigration policies largely because of the country’s ability to monitor the numbers of new arrivals and the melting pot’s ability to assimilate, integrate, and intermarry immigrants, who would soon relegate their racial, religious, and ethnic affinities to secondary importance.

Finally, the United States is the most individualistic and capitalistic of the Western democracies. The nation was blessed with robust economic growth, rich natural resources, and plenty of space. It assumed that its limited government and ethos of entrepreneurialism would create enough widespread prosperity and upward mobility that affluence—or at least the shared quest for it—would create a common bond superseding superficial Old World ties based on appearance or creed.

In the late 1960s, however, these three principles took a hit. The federal government lost confidence in the notion that civil rights legislation, the melting pot, and a growing economy could unite Americans and move society in the direction of Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision—“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”……….Please continue reading:

Yes, Yesterday’s Press Conference Played VERY Well with Trump Supporters

Sorry, media — this press conference played very differently with Trump supporters

by Michael Goodwin   at the New York Post:

“The president proved once again that he is the greatest show on Earth. Lions and tigers and elephants are kid stuff next to his high wire act.

Next time, the White House ought to sell popcorn.

Amid feverish reports of chaos on his team and with Democrats fantasizing that Russia-gate is another Watergate, Trump took center stage to declare that reports of his demise are just more fake news.

Far from dead, he was positively exuberant. His performance at a marathon press conference Thursday was a must-see-TV spectacle as he mixed serious policy talk with standup comedy and took repeated pleasure in whacking his favorite piñata, the “dishonest media.”

(Do review  every minute of this press conference provided by President Donald J. Trump.   Expect nothing creepy as was the forte of his devious predecessor.   This Donald J. Trump is deeply concerned about the condition and future of our once beloved United States of America.

President Trump is determined to restore the good, great and God to this once  blessed land of the free.   Our Obamaling dictatorship championing black racism, feminism, scholastic ignorance and open border invasions and its press must come to an end….)

Minnesota Last State to Declare in 2016 Presidential Election

Americans should understand a basic truth of their 21st century world…..nearly all means of education and communication are controlled by the extreme left.   Whether kindergarten in St. Paul, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor,   Harvard, NBC, PBS, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, CSPAN,  the New York Times, Washington Post, Minneapolis Strib, and so on and so on, this story is the same…..It’s leftism is divided only into its extremes.   Black Lives Matter is, at present, its most vicious,  violent tribe organized to disrupt where ever disruption is needed to extend the Obamaling world.

Black Racism, Feminazism,  Hispanic speakers from all corners have been encouraged by the Left to invade these United States in order to replace the present voting population without too much blood shed.

It is an Obamaling drive, lock step fascist-left to create a one-party dictatorship of the Left.

The last state on the American map to declare its choice to become the nation’s “45” president is……….Believe it or not….. Minnesota.

I admit, I feel good about the fact the state, my state,  almost returned to civilized freedom-loving America.    May God and eventually our America Bless Our President, Donald J. Trump…..Please  review the following claims of  “News” America, that November 8-9, 2016….made by the experts who control communication in 21st century United States of America……and enjoy every minute of the following news consultants at MSNBC……these days.     ENJOY the viewing below, freedom-loving Americans all!

Trump: Press Should Be Ashamed Of Themselves For Publishing Classified Leaks

by Tim Haines   at realclearpolitics:

The president puts the blame for Gen. Mike Flynn’s resignation on the media:

DONALD TRUMP: Mike Flynn is a fine person, and I asked for his resignation. He respectfully gave it. He is a man who, there was a certain amount of information given to vice president Pence who is with us today. And I was not happy with the way that information was given.

He didn’t have to do that because what he did wasn’t wrong. What he did in terms of the information he saw — what was wrong was the way that other people, including yourself in this room were given that information, because that was classified information. It was given illegally. That’s the real problem.

And, you know, you can talk all you want about Russia, which was all, you know, a fake news fabricated deal to try and make up for the loss of the Democrats and the press plays right into it.

In fact, I saw a couple of the people that were supposedly involved with all of this. They know nothing about it. They weren’t in Russia. They never made a phone call to Russia. They never received a phone call. It’s all fake news. It’s all fake news. The nice thing is, I see it starting to turn. Where people are now looking at the illegal. I think it’s very important. The illegal giving out classified information…

Our Dennis Prager at His Best

WHY I LEFT THE LEFT

WHY I LEFT THE LEFT  by David Rubin…..a Prager University Course

According to Dave Rubin, host of The Rubin Report, the “progressive” left needs a new name that more accurately describes the movement. In this week’s video, Dave, who considers himself a true liberal, says that we should call the “progressive left” the “regressive left.” Why? Because progressives today oppose free speech, freedom of religion, and diversity of thought. In other words, progressives have turned liberalism on its head. So if liberals don’t have a home on the left, should they consider themselves conservatives? Dave explains.

Do You Believe in Free Speech?

Should People be Judged by their Character rather than Skin Color?

Do You Believe in Freedom of Religion?

America Won’t Be Great without Following GOOD Again

AMERICA WON’T BE GREAT AGAIN UNTIL WE’RE GOOD AGAIN

By Don Feder  at Barbwire….. article sent by Mark Waldeland:

“As campaign slogans go, Trump’s “Make America Great Again” wasn’t bad – especially compared to the Queen of Thorns’ “Better Together” (With Hill, it’s always about the collective.) But more than two months after the 2016 campaign ended, even Trump’s supporters have only a vague idea of what “Make America Great Again” means.

The left, which is race-obsessed, sneered that it really meant “Make America White Again.” In one of their typically dazzling displays of logic, the Democrats reasoned that since Trump wanted to deport illegal aliens, who are mostly non-white, the real goal of immigration enforcement is to make America “whiter” – as if national security, crime-control or fairness to low-income wage-earners couldn’t possibly be considerations.

Trump’s platform included border security, rebuilding our military, job creation, negotiating realistic trade deals and developing domestic energy – all worthy, even necessary, goals. But it’s values, not policies, that made America great in the first place. Only by rediscovering those virtues will our country return to its former glory….”    Please read on:
