It’s hard to believe that the US economy (for all its warts) is one of the most stable aspects of this country right now.
We have the Vice President of the United States walking out of a pro football game in his own state because of players taking a knee during the National Anthem.
We have a vocal minority looking to disparage Italian-Americans by changing or banning Columbus Day festivities.
We had a mass shooting in Las Vegas last week killing 59 people and injuring more than 520, which authorities have yet to release a motive for.
First-person video reports on that night depict other shootings at other hotels on The Strip have been circulating on the Internet, but have not been addressed by law enforcement.
This is just the activities that have occurred in the past 8 days.
The rate of change in this society is moving at light speed, with little thought of the cumulative effect on our society.
If you look at what is behind these changes, it’s clear that the ultra left-leaning Democrats are driving these societal changes. NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio wants to perhaps remove Columbus’s statue from Columbus Square in Manhattan.
And the left will even eat its own lunch in its push for change. Look at Harvey Weinstein — a huge Democratic fundraiser — being thrown out of his company less than a week after a published report on his sexual harassment of women.
I don’t condone that behavior, but last Tuesday his behavior was only known to perhaps a few hundred people.
Suffice it to say, that this push to question everything and change it in a nanosecond is not driven from states that voted for President Trump or Vice President Pence. No these states that are pushing the envelope are on the coasts.
The Vice President was in Indianapolis to honor Peyton Manning having his jersey retired. The Colts were playing the San Francisco 49ers. Some of the 49er player took a knee. Not the Colt players.
The San Francisco Bay area and it’s ultra-left politics — including Silicon Valley — are really the nexus for this change. These tech companies provide platforms for voices — myself included — to push for change.
I just think its ironic that the 49ers decided not to resign Colin Kaepernick, who began the Anthem protest last season to bring awareness to law enforcement’s mistreating of minorities.
I believe there is little grass-roots change afoot. No this push for rapid change is institutionalized within the Democratic Party. I’m not sure how that bodes for them in the future.
