Denying denial
By Michael Oberndorf
July 11, 2019

A year-and-a-half ago, in February, 2018, I wrote a column entitled, The 51st State: Denial (https://canadafreepress.com/article/the-51st-state-denial; https://www.renewamerica.com/columns/oberndorf/180219), in which I discussed a number of serious problem areas and issues. People seemed to have trouble grasping the depth of the problems or who was causing them, and why. I suggested that this was denial: Denial is a psychological condition where the person or persons suffering from it refuse to acknowledge that a problem or reality exists. Not much has changed since then, except that the problems have gotten worse and new ones have arisen. And while more of We, the People, have regained sanity, denial still reigns virtually unchallenged in Washington, D.C.

I mentioned the "mainstream" media, calling them the Ministry of Leftist Propaganda. Since then, they have dropped all pretense of being unbiased, or even journalism. There is hardly anything produced by them today, whether in print, on TeeVee, or online, that is not riddled with outrageous, hate-filled lies, slander, libel, and thinly veiled incitements to violence. They, and their politician co-conspirators on the left have lied for and about, and covered up for blatant terrorist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, allowing them to commit acts of violent terrorism with impunity. Although, President Donald Trump is the ostensible target, ultimately it is We, the People, that they are hell-bent on destroying. The leftist media have gone from propaganda to active subversion.

I mentioned, too, the plethora of politicians who run and fool people into voting for them by posing as "moderates" and conservatives. On arriving in D.C., they throw aside the costumes and stand revealed as, not Supermen, but lying, bought-and-paid-for stooges and running dogs of the fascist/communist/globalist left. Like Charlie Brown and the football, far too many Americans have still not caught on. And the politicians continue to loot the public treasury for the benefit of their multi-millionaire and billionaire "donors" – the correct term should be "owners" – and themselves. Will we ever see a time when an elected or upper management official does not leave government far, far richer than when they entered?

I also pointed out the denial of the radical left's control of Lenin's Big Three: Education, the News Media, and Entertainment. The left's jackbooted control of education, through what is possibly the most radical leftist union in the world, the National Education Association (NEA) continues virtually unimpeded. America's children are no longer taught, they are brainwashed and indoctrinated, socially engineered by self-identified "change agents." Children in pre-school are being led down the path of mental illness by being made to believe that they can be any gender, or combination of genders, and then pushed to choose. Really sick stuff, and it's going on in schools all over the country. This on top of the grow percentage of students who are being "graduated" who are functionally illiterate. As has been pointed out, they can't even fill out a job application. What Americans in denial can't grasp is that this doesn't matter to the NEA, since the totalitarian collectivist government they so ardently long for will assign them to their jobs, and everything else in their dumbed-down, totally controlled lives.

I talked, too, about the insanely outrageous murder rate in our Democrat-run Urban Paradises, and the mealy-mouthed politicians' equally insanely outrageous claims that they are unable to do much about it. The situation has worsened, since we now have illegal aliens/invaders joining the black and Hispanic gangbangers in murdering, raping, robbing, and beating innocent victims, and drunken illegal alien drivers killing and maiming thousands. Democrats, however, and apparently a majority of elected Republicans, don't seem to see this as a problem, much less a "crisis." More Americans have died at the hands of illegal invaders than died in Iraq, and by the way, in Mexico, the source of most of the invaders and the enabler of the rest, around 70,000 people have been murdered, just in the last two years. That's way more than the 58,000 American soldiers who died in the entire Vietnam War. Mexico, our next-door-neighbor and a major trading partner, has descended into virtual anarchy, but not a peep of concern from Washington.

I concluded the column with a couple of statements regarding the media, the Democrats, and their supporters that bear repeating:
    However, what seems to be the area of deepest denial is the fact that these individuals and groups are NOT a loyal opposition, are NOT patriotic Americans who simply have a different viewpoint, are NOT people with America's best interests at heart, and that the goal of ALL of these traitors is the imposition of a totalitarian, collectivist police state. Serious denial.

    One last area of denial: that these problems will go away by themselves, or that someone else will fix them for us. Fatal denial.
A year-and-a-half of continued denial and negligent neglect have allowed these problems to fester and worsen, to metastasize like fatal cancers on the body of our once healthy nation. While President Trump has performed miracles, he can't do it all. We, the People, need to lose our fear of getting active. We need to learn civil disobedience, and stop doing what radical leftist judges demand that we must. We need to stop voting for establishment-supported candidates. We need to tell government, in no uncertain terms, that it is WE, THE MAJORITY, who are offended, by their actions and inaction, and we are not going to allow it anymore. PERIOD!
