Schlichter: "Normal Americans Are Bored By The Fake Drama"

Authored by Kurt Schlichter via Townhall.com,

I took a week off from the milieu of political insanity to go out amongst the normals and chalk up another huge trial victory, and when I got back I was stunned - stunned! - to find that a consensus had formed that Nazis are bad. Beforehand, I had no idea where the establishment stood on Nazis, but now it's crystal clear. They hate Nazis because Nazis are bad. Everyone from CNN to Mitt Romney hates Nazis. I couldn't be prouder of an establishment that takes that kind of tough stand. They're going to hate Nazis, and they don't care whose jack-booted toes they step on!

I also learned that if you hate Nazis for being bad, you're not allowed to hate anybody else who’s also bad, because Nazis are so bad that you have to devote all your hating capacity to hating Nazis such that there's no room left to hate anybody else. Those hammer and sickle flag-carrying Communists? Well, you must love the Nazis if you hate them, because you have got to hate the Nazis with all your mind and all your heart since, as we learned this week, Nazis are bad. I'm so glad that our moral betters have this all figured out.

This new breed of Nazis - for whom breeding doesn't seem to be in the cards - is less menacing that the originals. Instead of schmeissers they pack Tiki torches - for reasons no one seems able to explain. The old Nazis invaded Poland and wouldn't leave; these invade their moms’ basements and will never leave. But apparently these 300 or so misfits and malcontents are a potent peril to our republic. I'm not sure if they themselves are a direct threat to anything besides the bottom line at a Golden Corral all-you-can-eat buffet unlucky enough to have them as patrons. The only thing scarier to its manager would be seeing Lena Dunham waddling in on a cheat day.

They are not utterly harmless; one of these cowardly morons ran over and murdered a woman, which fulfilled the media’s long-standing dream of being able to report on a terrorist who wasn't a radical Muslim, a Black Lives Matter fan, or a Bernie bro. But the fact remains that this scraggly collection of polo-shirted dinguses numbering in the dozens is less of a threat to our society than the gleeful attempt by the establishment and its media puppets to use the looming threat of the Third Helping Reich to crush all opposition to the status quo.

The establishment’s tactic is to paint anyone they dislike as Nazis and any ideas its members oppose as hate speech, all in support of a strategy of slamming shut the Overton Window on any kind of change. The media is running with it, and if you get on Twitter, anyone to the right of Maxine Waters is now a Nazi - especially if you dare observe that the fascist fatties are not the only scumbags out there.

Even after a week, CNN is still quivering and writhing in an earth-shattering Nazigasm. When it finally ends, I expect in the network to be cuddling and sharing a Virginia Slim with the New York Times. And everyone from Hollywood half-wits to the CEO of Starbucks are making clear that they disapprove of Nazis - and no one else.

It's also got the usual suspects of the wuss right activated. That's why you see needy Fredocons like Mitt Romney being retrieved from their well-deserved obscurity and sent out to dance eagerly for the nods and nickels tossed his way by the same media that said he gave people cancer. I don’t know, but assume the guys vying to replace John McCain as the leader of the Blue Falcon wing of the GOP, Jeff Flake and Ben Sasse, competed vigorously to see who could ignore violent leftists in order to signal the most solemn rejection of Nazis in a manner that validates the lying liberals’ premise that the Republican Party harbors Nazis. Of course, we saw another pathetic grasp at relevance in the form of finger-wagging by the has-beens at that failing cruise cabin sales organization,The Weekly Standard.

But this cheesy grab for short-term political advantage is much more dangerous than that motley collection of stormdoofuses. The Times is now running op-eds advocating the suppression of speech its coastal elite readership finds unappealing. Yeah, a newspaper advocating censorship seems like a smart long-term strategy. The ACLU has added an asterisk to its acronym that explains that the only civil liberties it's going to be protecting from now on are the ones exercised by people approved by its rich liberal donors. Yeah, abandoning the one thing that earned the ACLU grudging respect across the board, its free-speech absolutism, seems like another smart long-term strategy. Oh, and the tech twerps of Silicon Valley decided to take it upon themselves to decide what discourse may be discoursed. Yeah, that's a smart long-term strategy that couldn't possibly explode in their smug, goateed faces.

But what's the effect on normal people? Taking a break from Twitter and the media for a week to go be with normal people gave me an interesting perspective that I don't get when I'm surrounded by others invested in politics. None of them care. The exact number of times I heard normal people mention Nazis was zero. No one normal was talking about it, except on the occasional big screen I passed in my travels. No one normal was paying attention to the Wolf Blitzers or the Rachel Maddows. Everyone normal was living their lives, and this fake moral meltdown had no part in them. The fact that the whole thing is so ridiculous doesn't help it gain traction. Donald Trump is a lot of things, but a Nazi is not one of them.

And the idea that when there are two sets of idiots facing each other you can't point out that both sets of idiots are idiots just doesn't ring true.

Normal people are blessedly free of the little taboos that the establishment seeks to impose, like the one that forbids pointing out that the alt left is just as scummy and slimy as the alt right. The general feeling among normals is “A pox on both your basements.”

The Great Nazi Panic of 2017 will fade away when its sponsors realize that it's not having the effect on the mass of the normal Americans they hoped for. But that doesn't mean it hasn't caused grave damage. The establishment has, in its desperation to return to unchallenged supremacy, eagerly jettisoned its dedication to the concept of free speech. It might not work out the way they hope once there is a national arbiter of what may and may not be thought or spoken. After all, as we found out last November, the person you think is going to be wielding the power isn't necessarily the person who you thought was going to be wielding the power.

2017 the year of the drama llama. From the very start of the year its been constant drama. Don't talk about corruption. That's taboo. We have bigger red herrings to fry!

That isn't the case. I'm a Trump supporter outside of his responses and actions toward white supremacists and minorities. It makes me and others question the reasons behind his actions. It isn't hard to disavow those groups, and counter protesting is well within anyone's rights-none of those brawls went beyond pushing. That isn't 'violence' and if you think it is you're a hypocritical pussy. I also think firing Bannon was a bad sign as he was the only non-globalist in his inner-circle.

He has to work with what he's got.
And he's got got 50 years of republican/democrat collusion to stoke racial tensions at the exclusive expense of the groups that you might think are unfairly treated.

Even if he has the balls to try to right all wrongs at once, he has to worry about his team and his team's families ... this was the reasonable 100% of what he could do, until McConnell steps aside in 2018 allowing POTUS to complete his "team."

What did these normal people discuss? I find the entire establishment's twisted distortion of the facts so morally offensive that all I can focus on is their outrageous hypocrisy and pathological lying.

Grab em by the pussy?, done that, I'm wondering where they can go next, may be pedophilia, although it seems the left have a monopoly on that scandal, something about pizzagate, lets see, we have done Russia and Nazis and Trumps sanity, it will have to come down to a manufactured evidence stitch up, I believe Mueller is working on that now.

The news tomorrow will be Trump to resign. It is for the best. He wouldn't have seemed so unglued in Phoenix if there wasn't some truth to it.

The head of the CIA, Brennen, was an admitted communist and it didn't stop him. Commies good, Nazis bad. Yeah, I don't get it either. Particularly, when we have such a close working relationship between the major corporations and DC, crapitolizm, corprotism is fascism by any other name, or Nazis wielding state power, but don't look there or see those facts.

Ironic that they are screaming Nazi while using Hitler's Propaganda guide:"Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side. (...) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (...) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula."Adolf HitlerPropaganda in Nazi Germanyhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_in_Nazi_Germany

Unemployment, jobs, healthcare, the economy, wouldn't it be great if someone somewhere on the left actually had any proposed policies on these matters that people want to know about.Just Imagine a world where the left had some economic policies, maybe one day......and no, Hating Trump is not an economic position, that's just being a bad loser....and while I'm on a roll here and having a good rave, I am sick of celebrities who because they have made a couple of very pleasant films that we all have enjoyed believe this gives them some right to ram their bigoted viewpoint down our throats.And, deep breath, now finished.

If you examine the history of political systems no nationalist group including the Nazis has done anywhere as much damage to human progress and life as the Marxists. From Stalin to Mao to Pol Pot to Castro and Chavez 100s of millions have died directly and indirectly from their insane collectivist control freak world view. And the group constantly formenting this chaos is the same (((group))) that financed the Marxists in 1917 in Russia-overthrowing a nationalist government. And via Soros and others of his ilk finance anti-american groups like Southern Poverty Legal Center, BLM, and Antifa. We should never allow the (((group))) that controls the news media, the entertainment industry, the educational and financial establishment to set the agenda for our nation. By equating these world views to those of white nationalist as the author does-a plague on both your houses-he abuses the fundamental truth that there is a deliberate attempt to destroy the white culture that made this country great. They are behind gun control, open borders, and illegal immigration and hate those old white guys responsible for our great constitution. Of course, they want to destroy the first and second amendment, tear down monuments to great men like Robert E. Lee etc. They hate Trump because he favors AMERICA FIRST.

And they want no discussion of why we give $3.6B in aid to Israel. That's anti-semetic (as if they even understand the meaning of that crazy label). Or perhaps its racist. Whenever someone calls you a denier, anti-semitic or racist, you can bet they are avoiding a discussion of the historical facts. Like where or where did that 6,000,000 figure come from? Out of someone ass, perhaps? Or maybe its just a co-incidence (((they))) were over 50% of the members of the American Communist Party in the 30-50 period. And why so many dual citizens in government office. We know where their loyalty lies!

Ov vey, the genie is out of the bottle and (((they))) have lost control and are anxious to prevent any discussion of real historical facts such as who benefited from all the major and minor wars of the 20th century. Could it be, say, the debt merchants? When will they ban the Merchant of Venice? Clearly very "anti-semitic"!

Many of these "nazis" (NOT nazis) know the truth about the kikes.

CNN (Communist Network News) IS completely owned and ran by kikes.

Communism was invented and is the main aim of the kikes in this country.

The kikes cannot allow the facts to get out.

That is why the false narrative of nazis=unite the right is orgasimously pushed upon the viewing public. To brainwash them that anything white is nazi.

We go from "he can't win" to "he lies" (proof?) to "he's a russian spy" (proof?) to "he's a racist" (proof?) to "he likes the KKK" (proof?)...what's next?.... he beats his wife?

This is kind of off topic, but what the hell ever happened to the jihadi sleeper cells that were embedded in every small town, dank urban neighborhood, and streaming across the Mexican border preparing to launch their Holy War and start lopping off the heads of innocent Americans?? I realize this is almost ancient history, but not too long ago we were all in a hysterical panic about the coming bloodbath at the hands of machete wielding ISIS maniacs. I know they were real because Alex Jones had fuzzy footage of them amassing in an abandoned Mexican Walmart shot by non other than ex- Green Beret, Special Ops, and all around super duper badass Joe Biggs. We were hearing ominous warning about them from our illustrious Intelligence Services almost weekly during the Obama years. They slipped from the headlines during the Great Russian Hysteria of 2016-17. Where did they go?? Were they actually Russian agents who joined the Neo Nazies?? How does Putin factor into all of this??
I'm thoroughly confused. Someone please help!! Who am I supposed to be in a hysterical panic about??

So funny because the real Nazi's are in control namely the military industrial complex which merged with Wall Street. In fact the U.S. has been under full Nazi control since the JFK slaughter.

Nazi's have two main characteristics.They are National Socialists and they maintain power by using race divisions. There is no debate on these two traits as the defining characteristics.The Half-breed Muslim Nigger president was a raving Nazi. There is no doubt he was and is a National Socialist and he started a race War against White people. He is a good of a NAZI as Adolph was the only difference is he did not get a chance to put White People into concentration camps.
