The Candid Conservative: Racism, fascism, Borgism
Wednesday, 31 March 2021 21:42
“We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.”
— “Star Trek”


Special to the Daily Planet

I have it on questionable authority that the quote above is an abbreviated version of the 2365 Democratic Party Platform.

There is absolutely no question this liberal collective is demonstrating Borg-like skills in corrupting America’s handhold on reality. With an eye on replacing it with their vision of “progressive” liberal utopia, they are succeeding.

Careful research of the various digitally streamed “Star Trek” episodes offers helpful insight on the Borg’s methods and agenda – and how the rest of us can resist.

Let’s boldly go where no man – especially those fearing the tentacles of the cancel culture – has gone before.


Progressives lie

One thing above all others reveals the liberal-progressive-socialist movement – a Pavlovian indifference to truth.

Habituation assures that very few progressives actually recognize their truth impairment.

Licensing “ends justify the means” thinking for almost any behavior – as long as it’s deployed toward the agenda of compassionate utopian perfectionism – does that to you.


Bordering on insanity

Did you know the crisis at the border is Trump’s fault and that actually there really isn’t a crisis? It’s just the latest exaggerated right-wing conspiracy accusation against the merciful immigration mission of the left.

The real reason Mr. Biden won’t let photographers into facilities to take pictures of the chaos is to protect the confidentiality rights of the tired, poor, huddled masses that are not really there and are certainly not guilty of illegally violating our borders.

Porous borders help the Borg/left because chaos serves the Borg/left. Social, economic and political instability makes it easier to manipulate the naive, young and otherwise vulnerable.

Next to dishonest, the liberal collective is nothing if not manipulative.


Everybody but the racists is a racist

Did you know the angry sex addict who killed eight people in three Atlanta massage parlors was actually a racist on an anti-Asian rampage?

Only liberals were smart enough to recognize that the “Asian Spas” in question had nothing to do with people of Asian descent performing sex acts under the guise of massage services. Unlike the actual on-site investigators, they also had an uncanny awareness that the real motive for the carnage was racism. How did they know? Simple, by their tendency to believe anything not fitting their view is motivated by racism.

Per the left, conservative systemic racism is revealed by resistance to the Black Lives Matter movement, ANTIFA, and reparations. Our racist credentials are further crystalized by the racist suggestion that the NAACP, Black Congressional Caucus, Black Entertainment Television and other “black” entities are for real demonstrations of racism.

Conservatives – where does this kind of crazy thinking come from – seem to believe that one cannot rationally be hailed as an equal and a victim at the same time.


Fickle fascists

The reason all conservatives are racists is because we are all fascists, too. We secretly desire to be ruled by a narcissistic strongman dictator-type with flowing orange hair and have fascist-like resistance to being ruled by a narcissistic stumble-bumble real dictator-types – think executive orders on steroids – with thinning white hair. 

Mr. Webster defines fascism as “a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

Contemplate ANTIFA, BLM, the DNC, 95 percent of the mass media outlets in the country, protestors pillaging communities, and progressives in general and then reread the definition of fascism.

If you’re wondering how that happened, take a mental journey back to middle-school. Although conspiracy theorists like to picture brilliant masterminds in secret rooms plotting to rule the world, the left is really just a bunch of political opportunists operating out of a middle-school handbook. Remember the clicks, nastiness, popularity quests, bullying and pretense?

Do you also remember how much you wanted to get out of middle-school?


Resistance isn’t futile

Additional progressive “Borgisms” include (1) the belief that ending 65 million new lives is a fair price to pay for sexual convenience (2) shifting trillions and trillions in debt to the children that are left is fair play (3) life is such a miserable process that we all need ready access to drugs (4) having the capacity to defend yourself against thugs and criminals is anti-social behavior and (5) giving anyone who votes for you permanent victim status is positive public policy.

Funny thing about truth. It’s an easy thing to hide, distort or ignore right up to the minute it steps up and punches you – hard – in the nose.

The Borg has motivation and momentum. Conservative thinkers have reason and truth. 

Chose your side wisely....
