Columbus Another Casualty of the Left’s Identity Politics War

Columbus Day, is the second Monday of October and it’s a United States federal government holiday. Brooklyn lawmaker Charles Barron has just introduced legislation, in the form of Bill A8676, to rename Columbus Day. In addition, Alaska, Minnesota and Vermont have notched up their virtue signaling to a new level by renaming "Columbus Day" to "Indigenous Peoples Day."

Barron further argues: “Not only should the Columbus statues come down, but also the statues of Thomas Jefferson…and George Washington.” Barron’s rhetoric is not only reckless, misguided and divisive, but it is also the dangerous type of race baiting that is designed to exploit the 99 percent. The logic behind these actions seems to be that if you can’t legislate or win at the ballot box, let’s further divide and conquer America by inciting civil war.

Irrespective of Representative Barron’s wishes, most Americans want to recognize Columbus Day as a national holiday. The United States has survived for over two hundred years, but Barron and the oligarch funders of these “populist" radical left movements wish to rewrite history in a move to eliminate the middle class and further subjugate the 99 percent. Is this a mission-accomplished moment for America’s oligarchs and political elites, aka the .01 percent?

During President Obama’s White House reign, America’s racial divide, wealth inequality and liberal educational indoctrination have all surged to new record highs. Diversity of thought has been replaced with the liberal left’s definition of conformity.

In addition, the US government continues tightening its iron fist over the economy. Just look at the Federal Reserve’s unlimited bank bailouts, the opening of the US borders or the government’s welfare redistribution schemes given to the bottom 99%, which are designed specifically to buy votes.

Oligarchs control Washington DC’s cast of pay-to-play swamp dwellers, which include unelected bureaucrats, billionaire media moguls and many special interest groups along with their armies of high-paid lobbyists — all of whom are disproportionately rewarded with power and huge sums of cash.

What the general population, fawning over late-night TV hosts, fails to realize is that they are being played by these multi-millionaires! Most people believe that the government’s function is to help and that big government would never do anything to harm the public. Impressionable millennials and Generation Zers are too young to remember anything but Obama-era politics and this new normal race-baiting — race-baiting that continues to divide America.

The mantra that the liberal left follow is that if you disagree with their views, you must be a Republican Trump supporter as well as a fascist, a Nazi, a racist, a misogynist, an Islamophobe and a homophobe. The Obama/Clinton resistance movement (that justifies violence) and Antifa are diversions which will lead to an end of liberty and democracy with the end result being fascism from the left.

The USA’s talking heads often talk about fascism but they never accurately define it. Fascism is a version of authoritarian nationalism that features amongst other things totalitarianism. It prohibits people from expressing free thought, speech or ideas.

New York Representative Charles Barron’s rhetoric demands we destroy United States’ history. This is the “new fascism” from the liberal left. This is what ISIS did. It’s what Nazi Germany did when they burnt all their books. Japan has removed every reference of World War II from its history books. Future generations will never be able to remember the atrocities Japan committed, and no lessons will be learned from history. Should we rewrite United States history as well? Should we start burning books?

This is a totally wrong path to accept. In order to grow and move forward, the world needs historical perspective. History always repeats itself and offers valuable lessons that offer a path forward. No one can rewrite history; that's totalitarian propaganda, aimed at moving forward the failed liberal agenda. The mainstream liberal media have elevated America's virtue signaling to a fever pitch under a banner of identity politics — a.k.a. tribalism — with social justice as a key feature.

This campaign is a massive pivot away from the much bigger problems that are being swept under the rug: wealth inequality, the failing US economy and the United States losing its role as leader of the free world. The United States has over $250 trillion in debt that can never be repaid, the EU is on the verge of collapse and US dollar hegemony is doomed. Yet the bread and circuses keep going around and around as global stock markets hit daily new highs. What could possibly go wrong?

The liberal media never want to discuss real issues impacting real Americans. Why hide how Hollywood moguls and politicians regularly sexually abuse women with impunity? Does it have anything to do with cash and buying influence in our political pay-to-play culture?

Look at predators such as Harvey Weinstein. It’s been a rough ride for embattled Weinstein over the past few days. Two members of his legal dream team have resigned. One of America’s most prominent women’s rights advocates, Lisa Bloom — who two days earlier remarked how she was hired to assist Harvey in using this “painful learning experience to grow into a better man” and promised to “continue to work with him personally for as long as it takes" — lasted only 48 hours before resigning on Twitter. So “as long as it takes” doesn’t seem to be very long.

The entertainment world’s silence regarding the Weinstein case is deafening. Lorne Michaels, whose Saturday Night Live has been exposed for its political advocacy and indoctrination, has remained completely silent about the issue. Lorne Michaels, why are you protecting Weinstein? Why no mention whatsoever? Why hasn’t there been any outcry from the liberal left? Where are the liberal politicians condemning Weinstein?

The answer can be found in the connections between Hollywood and Washington. Michaels, like Weinstein, contributed substantial sums to democratic candidates, such as Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Chuck Schumer, Chris Dodd, John Lewis, and Al Franken among others. Harvey Weinstein even bundled for the Clintons and the Obamas, convincing his friends and associates to donate money to their campaigns.

Weinstein, Hollywood, & The Democrats: A 30-Year Cover-Up of A Sexual Predator

Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, and Barack Obama, how much cash is enough to buy your silence regarding sexual predators such as Harvey Weinstein? What is your actual dollar limit? Your hypocrisy is shocking. Your silence is even more shocking.

Americans need to realize the massive amounts of cash Hollywood is pumping into the Washington swamp. These Hollywood propagandists peddle politically scripted agendas in return for the power and influence they purchase. This ensures an excellent return on investment, sometimes in the billions of dollars. Nothing can help a movie or television studio more than heavy government support for its projects. And our politicians are more concerned with selling out every-day Americans to the same Hollywood moguls than protecting their constituents—you remember, the silly people who voted for you.

The Democratic National Committee, the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand are just a few who have received massive amounts of cash from Harvey Weinstein. The Democratic National Committee and politicians who "claimed" they would return some cash are, of course, only willing to return a fraction of what they were given.

The Clinton Foundation is completely silent about returning even one dime. Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton received millions of dollars from Weinstein, Weinstein's companies, and his bundling efforts. In fact, Hillary on her What Happened book tour in London has refused any comment on Weinstein's predicament, let alone volunteered to give back the millions Weinstein gave to her, to her husband, and to the Clinton Foundation.

Weinstein was a regular guest of Barack Obama. In fact, he visited the Obama White House more than 13 times during Obama's tenure. Weinstein even hired Obama's daughter as an intern. But that's not all.

In 2013, Hollywood mogul Barry Diller hired Hillary Clinton’s daughter to sit on the board of IAC Interactive, for which she was paid $50,000 a year and $249,936 in stock. Chelsea Clinton, a student with zero experience. This illustrates the pay-to-play culture and systemic rot generated by the propagandists running Hollywood and trying to manipulate our political system.

How dangerous does it become when entertainment figures can buy power and influence in our political system? Does anyone honestly believe that the same Hollywood moguls’ contributions to Washington DC do not impact public policy? Does anyone believe that these same moguls who control Hollywood do not exercise extreme censorship against any viewpoints that don't conform with their liberal ideologies?

Entertainment has become political advocacy bordering on extreme propaganda. Hollywood is an agenda-driven political-discourse machine designed to indoctrinate America's masses into accepting to the liberal viewpoint. In addition, if you're not from the liberal side of the fence, you won't get a job in Hollywood. Without the correct ideology, you will always remain an outsider looking in.

Americans need to think about the billions of dollars they are paying to fund Hollywood motion pictures, TV shows, and cable networks. Hollywood's profits are used to influence the political process, indoctrinate our young, fill the Washington DC swamp, and purchase political favours. It's time for America to wake up — because we need real news, real entertainment, and real political change.
