The Aristocrats are overwhelmingly Democrat. It's a thoroughly blue class.
The riots over the past few days have been almost entirely blue on blue. It's the campus radicals and the blacks sacking cities run by progressives, starting in Minneapolis, whose mayor couldn't be more of a prog if he tried. And believe me, he has.
Dittos for the riots in Portland, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. Blue Aristocrats run them all and they are watching their cities looted by blue foot soldiers.
The reason that they can't stop the rioting is that, true to the thesis of Coming Apart, the Aristos don't understand the Normals. Not one, little bit. In their tony universities, like Minneapolis' Mayor Frey's Villanova, the students were taught about whiteness and privilege and social justice. They were taught the language of apology and contrition. They learned that the world was made up of good-hearted proles who only needed enlightened Aristos to lead them into a glorious future.
That world does not, in fact, exist.
That's why Democrat leaders, mouthing Democrat mantras about peace and justice, have failed to get these riots under control. Their allies in the media and entertainment don't understand the world of the Normals, either. Hence, suggestions by the press that this is the work of white supremacists and vows by Hollywood stars to bail out the rioters from jail.
I hate to say it, but as I watch this unfold and see how the blue Aristos still cling to their racial religion, I don't see any way this ends except in a splitting of America, along the lines of Kurt Schlichter's novels.
This topic is too depressing. Instead of posting a riot photo, here's a redhead who likes to drink at our bird bath. Enjoy.
