Who Is Our Enemy?
because there is no politics without an enemy
Mao was the guy that said it like it is:
Who are our enemies? Who are our friends?
But that didn’t stop him from being chummy with Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon, because Mao knew that while the capitalistic Americans were certianly enemies, so was the Soviet Union poised on his northern border.
But, “there is no politics without an enemy.”
The thing is: we conservatives, we commoners, don’t really have an enemy. That’s why I always write about “our lefty/liberal friends.” We believe that humans rub along if you give them half a chance, and if you keep the politicians and their bullhorns down to a dull roar.
But in politics, you gotta have an enemy. That’s why conservative activists get so mad at RINOs and the Uniparty. They are making nice with our Democratic friends while the Democrats and the DEI administrators and the Haitian Concrete Industrial Complex play the race card, every chance they got. I was reading this morning about how corrupt Fani Willis is complaining about attacks on her:
Willis claims she and top prosecutor were targeted because they are Black[.]
As those racist white Southern women say: “Bless her heart.”
Now in my Assorted Opinions and Maxims I say:
Four political strategies: Unite the country against a small country for a quick win; unite the country against a big country for a world war; unite half the country against the other half for a civil war; unite most of the country against a small minority for a witch-hunt.
I cannot remember from whom I stole this important truth. But I see from my October 2021 post “Which Enemy is Best?” that I have been thinking about it for a while.
The point is still the point. If you want to make your way in the world, pick on a small enemy. But not the Jews! I got that direct from Literally Hitler groaning in the fires of Hell. “Don’t mess with the Jews!” he said.
Incidentally, I think that our liberal friends made a mistake in deciding to make “white oppressors” as the enemy. You think that all the whites in America is a “small minority?” Could be a problem there.
But who should the enemy be?
Transgenders? Probably not. I have a feeling that transgenders — who seem to be mostly men — actually like the attention.
DEI Administrators? Probably not. My feeling is that DEI administrators are mid-wits; they are just picking up a good gig and they recite the responses in Woke Church. Just fools and knaves, like Claudine Gay, scion of the Haitian Concrete Industrial Complex.
Deep-state bureaucrats? I don’t think they are enough of a threat. The fact is that bureaucrats are there from the security and the pension. In the Next Regime they will just follow orders.
Activists? Now you are talking. You can check out my brief on “Activism Culture” where I call out:
activism [as] a return to revolution, rioting for the ruling class, part medieval knight-errantry, and part activisme, or gentry kids putting on a school play for their parents[.]
Medieval knight-errantry? Yes. If you read about King Arthur and Parzival and the various knightly orders like the Teutonic knights, you realize that it is all a pantomime, as if powerful feudal lords are really on a quest tto find the lost Holy Grail rather than just acting out as thug medieval barons in their medieval castles.
And if you think about Mr. Knightley in Jane Austen’ s Emma…
The thing is that activists are the privileged pets of the ruling class — that get to do their “ mostly peaceful protests” without paying a price for “ insurrection” — and they need to be taken down a peg or two. As capitalists were in the olden time.
Are activists really the enemy? No, of course not. They are mostly kiddies doing what they have been carefully taught. But it wouldn’t hurt if they were taken down a peg or two.
And “there is no politics without an enemy.”
