The Left is talking. The CSPAN broadcast
titled Populism and Global Politics at Johns Hopkins 4/3/17 is a good example
of how Liberals are spinning the unwinding of the globalist movement in the US
Liberals are hoping that economies do not
improve, tipping off their strategy to do what they can to damage the economy,
so that their Conservative opponents are discredited.
They report that the post war period from
1945 to 1970 was the time that the people were content with the “ruling elite”.
They cite the 1960s as the decade when existing institutions were questioned.
They cite the 1970s as the time when the current mood of economic discontent
began. But they dodge all evidence that the Liberals caused the problems.
They see the trend toward “majority rule”
as a problem. They blame “racism” as the cause of the trend in Europe and the
US and they cite migration as the cause. They continue to insist that ‘people
should get better at assimilating other cultures’.
They admit that the majority is resisting
because they are not comfortable with other races or cultures. They claim that
these people resist change to retain their “identity”.
They suggest that this resistance movement
could be mollified by bribing the “majority” to retain liberal policies. To the
Left, we are still “rats in the maze”, ready to be manipulated again.
The Left is not admitting that they went
too far and the “Populist Movement” they are wringing their hands over is a
natural reaction to their overreach they should have anticipated.
