I have an excellent idea for the next installment of Star Wars. It would be called “The Greatest Jedi Mind Trick Ever” and it would be about how the Media/Academic/Entertainment coalition in concert with the Democrats have convinced the black community and a large percentage of the gullible American electorate that urban poverty and blight is the result of racism.
Taking California and New York as prime examples, they are the first and fourth most populous states in the country. Yet they are also undoubtedly where income equality is at its greatest, an issue that liberal Democrats have been decrying ever since the ’08 election of Obama and one that both Hillary and Sanders are making the centerpiece of their campaigns.
A recent article, California of the Dark Ages, highlights the slow-motion extinction of the middle class in that state along with all of the commensurate problems that it’s creating there. California and New York, along with all of the major urban centers from Chicago to Detroit, from Cleveland to Washington, DC, have always been controlled by Democrats. And the same can be said for the governorships of both California and New York.
So why is it that Democrats don’t shoulder the responsibility for the failures that consume the majority of the country’s largest cities. The answer is simple, the M/A/E coalition has distracted and misdirected the American public for well over 50 plus years when the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed during Lyndon Johnson’s administration, solidifying the black vote for Democrats in perpetuity.
To coin a new phrase, “Hispanic is the New Black”. And the M/A/E coalition is up to its same old tricks of distraction and misdirection by shining its light on what Democrats are supposedly doing in the name of compassion instead of the inherent problems their policies are creating – and have created for decades.
From California of the Dark Ages: “The unspoken responsibility of California state government is to bring state-sponsored parity to new arrivals from Oaxaca, and to do so in ideological fashion that ensures open borders and more government. It is the work of a sort of secular church, and questioning its premises is career-ending blasphemy.” It goes on to say: “California is no place for the middle class.”
And in New York City, where 73% of the electorate voted Bill DiBlasio into office, it’s been said he’s a 100 miles to the left of Hillary Clinton. So how is it that in the financial capital of the world they continue to vote in liberal Democrats that deplore that state of income inequality in the city where it is most prominently on display. One has to wonder that with all the rhetoric, nothing ever changes and the income gap continues to widen, especially in New York and California where Democrats have controlled the political agenda for decades.
My recommendation to Disney who now owns the Star Wars franchise is to produce the next installment portraying a mind trick of cosmic proportions – the conning of a vast segment of the American electorate into believing Democrats are not responsible for what ails the country, and that they are the only ones that can solve the problems they’ve actually created. That would make for one helluva movie.
