This essay by Sarah Hoyt says it all. Here's the payoff for me.
There is this Jorge Luis Borges story, where the old gods are returning to Earth, but upon their arrival, it is found that they have lost the ability to speak. Instead, when they open their mouths, they caw or roar, or make other bestial sounds. The populace, disgusted, turns away from them and refuses to worship them. I don’t remember precisely (it’s been years since I read them), but I think in the end the “gods” get utterly destroyed.In our case, the "old gods" are the media, the entertainment industry and the academy. Instead of bestial sounds, the only sounds they can produce are screams of "Racism!" Trump is becoming a great president because he's accelerating the process. His ability to troll them into screaming is exactly what we need right now to expel this from our culture.
Yesterday, a librarian made headlines by refusing a gift of Dr. Seuss books from Melania Trump because Dr. Seuss was racist.
So now, Dr. Seuss = "Racism!"
Twitter erupted with photos of Michelle and Barack Obama reading Dr. Seuss books to children as well as that same librarian dressed up as the cat from The Cat in the Hat. Since the progressives and the old gods have become a suicide cult, the obvious hypocrisy won't change their minds at all. They can't hear us any more than they can speak intelligibly.
Just this morning, the old gods screamed again as AOL ran with this headline. Twitter accuses Michelle Obama of pushing 'racist' literature onto children. The actual story was about a progressive screaming "Racism!" at Melania, but the old gods at AOL struggled to twist it into an attack on the Obamas, which, as we all know, is racist.
The longer this goes on, the more obvious it is that it's all just animal noises. The NFL kneeling stupidity dropped the mask, big time. Millionaire athletes are blasting their blue collar fans for racism and oppression. It's insanity. It's a suicide cult.
The old gods will finally be destroyed when their screams of "Racism!" are replied to with this.
