Do the Democrats Really Hate America? Part II of II
Thanks to persistent efforts by Democrats, we woke up one morning and found ourselves technologically coherent but socially stripped, religiously sterile and politically hijacked.

It began with Tom Brokaw's Greatest Generation. The marginal generation of offspring which sprang from the major exodus of immigrants from their native lands to this country. It was my generation — a generation which spawned the hippies, yippies, flower children and the eventual Woodstockers. This is the group whose pseudo-psychologists gave birth to sensitivity training with its drive to control human behavior and the human mind..
It took a few years and a great deal of patience but then the splinters from sensitivity training began to show up in a labyrinth linkage of touchy-feely, non-substantive sentiments which eventually led us into the promised cultural revolution we now recognize as Diversity and Political Correctness.
These present liberals are the progeny of the greatest generation. They have infiltrated and control the Democrat Party. They stole its heritage and transported it to socialism. The Party itself was sold a lemon while thinking it was buying lemonade. They have spread as locusts from every facet of our daily living and into most of our institutions.. In the late sixties the first wave laid the foundation and the second wave moved into the vacuum.
It can be measured from the time of the 60s Woodstockers as they matured into elitists who infiltrated the Democrat party and gained control of its goals, its aims and its platform. These are the progeny of the greatest generation who staged widespread sit-ins at colleges, burned their panties when the cameras were rolling, stormed government offices at every level, believed that the world could never make it without them and through their pot smoking moaned that life had done them wrong.
They have infected and dominated our society at every level including the major branches of government as well as the world of entertainment, the main stream news media, the unions, and the field of education. Even the comics strips now reflect their presence and are utilized to help alter the minds of the young with such agitative and incitive cartoons as Doonesbury and Boondocks. In the late sixties the first wave laid the foundation and the second wave moved into the vacuum.
Once entrenched in the 70s and feeling secure, our western hemisphere Bolsheviks incrementally introduced Diversity. The obvious outgrowth of the sensitivity training period. It was instrumental in replacing the evolution of the melting pot to the revolution of multiculturism. Whereas the melting pot accepted people for what they were, multiculturism took people and emphasized what they were not. It became a provincial concept which balkanized races and nationalities. The two edged sword of socialism as pointed at the heart of our free enterprise system. It was honed with the acceptance of the doctrine of Diversity on one edge of its blade and the rotted tenets of Political Correctness on the other.
We have seen that diversity is divisive. Diversity is digression. Diversity aided in creating affirmative action. A program which introduced a race and gender to the premise that they are inferior and need help even at the expense of others. A program and a philosophy of life which claimed to solve a problem but refused to accept the result that it only created another one. Diversity is a polarizing factor. In the name of Diversity we curry license to coddle fanatics, nourish zealots, reward abhorrent behavior and dismiss as normal the concepts of aberrant life styles. Diversity places an emphasis on the differences in people rather than on their uniqueness as individuals and children of God. Diversity is an obstructionist tool which creates destructive dissent and by its very nature promotes gridlock. Diversity has run rampant.
Whereas diversity has been an attack on the mores of a total population with an aim to altering a nation's culture, political correctness has been the attempt to manipulate and control thought through the mandated selection of words. Karl Marx would be proud and under the tutorship of Lenin it has learned how to go for the jugular.
The public education system, in most quarters, has been a strong proponent of political correctness and all its manifestations. It has taken the 10 Commandments from its hallowed halls and replaced them with a moral vacuum, a secular numbness and a national paralysis. In too many school systems across the land there has been a dilution of the proud history of our American and western civilization. The public education system abhors competition. This is the commodity which lays bare its ineptness.
Political correctness as governance for controlled thought is a slippery commodity which is easily manipulated by the elitists of this relatively new socialist party. It can be changed at any given moment to meet the exigencies of the day. It is mindful of the words of a former senator who stated, "I live by my principles and one of my principles is flexibility."
Political Correctness is in itself racist for it claims the high road on freedom of thought and action. It is repressive and obtrusive. It has placed in its cross hairs a word such as racist and used it to crucify free expression. It has helped in the changing of meaning of words. Now we see that perversion is referred to as an alternative life style; depravity is now called creative self expression; adultery is freedom of behavior, promiscuity is nothing more than harmless leisure time activity and taxation is listed as investment.
The disciples, must eventually awaken to the fact that they have been supporting a juggernaut which in the recent past has determined how much water should be in their toilets; what diets they should be on; what size and type car to buy; where to live; whether the puddles in their back yards are wetlands; that higher taxes are an investment in their welfare; and it is unhealthy in our country for them to attain any degree of financial wealth since we must all be equal.
Is there a light available which can be shed into their darkened minds? Maybe. It is said that there is no faster conversion to religion than an atheist in a foxhole and similarly there will be no faster conversion to patriotism and perceiving the light than another 9/11.
