Pondering our undoing

Thomas Sowell is a man who possesses a brilliant mind, which makes his “Random Thoughts” worth reading.

This is an example:

“Historians of the future, when they look back on our times, may be completely baffled when trying to understand how Western civilization welcomed vast numbers of people hostile to the fundamental values of Western civilization, people who had been taught that they have a right to kill those who do not share their beliefs.”

Ponder that.

    Just read this in the UK’s Daily Mail: Sicilian mafia declares ‘war on migrants’ after immigration levels soar. Mayor says Sicily capital feels more like Istanbul or Beirut than Europe. He describes Sicily’s capital as ‘no longer European’

    Already happening here in the U.S., look at Minneapolis. Random Thought dead on, literally.

    And last week, Pope Francis jetted to the Greek isle of Lesbos and chose 3 Muslim families who will live inside the massive walls of Vatican City. Meanwhile, in yesterday’s British press, there was an interview of a young Syrian Christian couple with their small children who were also waiting on the isle of Lesbos in hopes that the Pope would choose them. No such luck for the Christians.

    On another note, B. Insane Obama has been dragging his massive entourage on a road trip this past week. Sucking up to the Saudis, who didn’t even show up at the airport to give him the royal welcome.

    Then, the day before Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday (and on the eve of the prez and his wife dining with the British royals), Obama makes a public statement that “sovereignty is outdated”.
    And threatening trade sanctions on Britain should their citizens vote to exit from the European Union (Brexit).

    Now, today it is learned that Obama says that ‘. . .locking people up will not make for safer communtities’. . . . .

    I know that he’s driving around in The Beast in Britain, so he must not know that just two days ago, a family of eight people were shot and killed execution-style on their rural property in Ohio.
    And those responsible for this act are unknown to the police and still on the loose.

    And, this, from Virginia: The Dem Gov has changed the law there to allow over 200,000 convicted felons to vote.
    The Va. Gov. hearts HIllary.

    Failure to uphold the US Constitution occurring on a massive scale at every level of government.
    Can this ever be fixed?

    It’s not baffling. Political correctness, used by Communists, Marxists, et al has enabled this once unthinkable situation. “Patriots” among the world leaders never stood up to it. They kept quiet and just watched the Western world die.

    Look at our Republican leadership over the past 7+ years. They said vote for us and we’ll stop Obama. That didn’t happen. They actually gave him what he wanted or if they didn’t, he took the executive order route and the peanut gallery never balked. Paul Ryan and John McCain are our worst enemies. They’re both open borders fanatics. If we don’t like it, they call us racists, bigots and we don’t share the ‘values’ of this country.

    This country has gone center-left under Obama and his enablers – the RINOs in Congress. Is anyone surprised at the rise of Donald Trump. If they are, they’re too ignorant to vote.

      Political correctness will usher in our demise. Thank liberals for undermining our cohesive values including our unifying language, Judeo-Christian based principals, and the elevating of the history of Western Civilization. Pressing 1 for Spanish is an example of lowered expectations that succeeds in fostering divisiveness. Our kids are now taught moral relativism in the government schools (formerly known as public schools) they attend. There is no such thing as American exceptionalism. We are the equivalent of Haiti or Iran. No better, no worse. Their teachers are unionist liberals, who cut commercials for Prop 123, saying we need to “get more money into the classroom.” That’s code for more money into their pockets for brainwashing our kids with leftsist propaganda and teaching them scientifically disputed global warming and the importance of recycling. Ask your children or grandchildren to locate Great Britain on a map or to explain what the Bill of Rights contains.

      Excellent points made in this video. I, too, despise the concept of hyphened Americans. Our strength comes from celebrating our unity not diversity—which divides us.
