When secession comes, it will be born of exhaustion and resignation, not politics. It might be manifested politically, but its roots will be exasperation with continued incompetence by state and Federal leaders. Today's example is how the news media is reacting to school board meetings wherein parents fight Modern Nazi Race Theory indoctrination. Here's a particularly good example.
Watch this parent absolutely obliterate Critical Race Theory at an Illinois school board meeting:— Benny (@bennyjohnson) June 17, 2021

A senior reporter at NBC, a foot soldier for secular leftist orthodoxy, believes that the fight against Modern Nazi Race Theory is being waged improperly and with undue zeal.
“It’s hard for me as a reporter because I don’t want to put FOILs in a bad light, Freedom of Information Laws are wonderful things,” the writer preluded. “But it is in fact a tactic of national and just hyper and fast-growing local organizations to use onerous public records requests …Asking for all these record requests of ‘how much money did you spend on anything involving race,’ and then that is used to sort of frame again the school board as paying for CRT. Which, again, is just not the case.”
Emphasis mine. That phrase clued me in to what's happening. The goose-stepping is being pushed at a national level by government, academia, the media and such. Resistance is happening at the local level and is only semi-organized. It's intellectual and emotional secession. That's how secessions start. They're emotional first and practical second. My prior blog post about the Atlanta suburb of Buckhead trying secede is similar in that the residents of Buckhead reached an emotional breaking point after which reconciliation could be very difficult.
Salesman tip: Prospects make a "buy" decision emotionally, not intellectually.
These secession meetings, née citizen revolts, are another data point along that same set of secession curves.
I hate the thing. I hate it. The vehemence of my gut reaction surprised me until I dug deeper into the source. This is simply more self-esteem pornography. It's a pack of wealthy people congratulating themselves on having struck a blow for the oppressed while in reality, it's really only another case of moral masturbation. Even the name of it is condescending. Juneteenth? What, are we illiterate children now? A year hence, kids from alternative families will be in as much pain as they are right now. From that blog post:
This is nothing more than the Romanovs having a drunken party followed by an orgy where innocent lives are the menu, whether that's black kids growing up without fathers or middle-class white girls binding their chests. The SJWs are going along with it because they get to feel the same orgasms of self-esteem as the powerful.
Juneteenth isn't a celebration of freedom, it's a celebration of ourselves.
