“Lies become the truth, and the truth has become lies.” — attributed to George Orwell
When you set out to destroy a nation and its culture, you will invariably attack it on multiple fronts. You will ensure the steady erasure of property, gun and privacy rights, and you will ensure there are growing entitlements and a heavy burden of taxes to support them, ultimately leading to an economic collapse that will allow you to rebuild from the ashes.
You will pretend to work — with well-intended motives — to redistribute wealth, to introduce socialism into the healthcare system, to alter the country’s demographics, and to promote legalized discrimination against the nation’s heretofore dominant groups. You will even engage in previously unheard of social engineering, forcibly inserting the poor into middle class neighborhoods, and gleefully erasing your nation’s borders to further destabilize the status quo.
With the taste of blood in your mouth, you’ll have fun with all of that, but in conjunction with such assaults you will also conduct a full frontal attack against the nation’s existing historical narrative, in an effort to deconstruct it and reinvent it. You will never, never, never question the morality of doing any of the things you are doing. You will be smug and righteous in your piety, and your agenda will brook no dissent or introspection.
We can see this unquestioning certainty in the recent loud controversy over the lack of “diversity” in the Academy Awards, a lack of diversity both within the Academy’s nominating membership and its Oscar nominees. The need to reinvent the Academy’s membership to reflect America’s changing demographics is now described as being paramount. Be that as it may, absolutely nowhere in this discussion does anyone ever question the morality of the entirely unrequested and jet-speed reinvention of the American people — all in a single human lifetime — that is the wellspring of this controversy. And White Americans are now so devoid of any sense of group identity that it never even occurs to anyone to raise this as an issue.
To repeat our original premise, when your intent is to purge a people out of existence, one of the tactics is to rewrite and reinvent portions of their history and culture. Today, if we are willing to perceive it, there is just such a formidable effort to reinvent America’s historical record, and it can only be a precursor of things to come.
One method of reinvention is to insert our society’s emerging groups (blacks, hispanics, Arabs, Asians, etc.) into the historical narrative to make it appear that they played a substantive role in it, even if the participation is embellished or entirely imaginary. On a recent early morning walking tour of Arlington National Cemetery, I was part of a group navigating its way through the cemetery’s monuments and graves, eventually ending up at an unassuming marker dedicated to the sacrifices of the vaunted Tuskegee Airmen, the first Negro airmen group, which served in World War Two.
The tour guide, reading from a prepared script intended for walking tours, regaled us with information about the unit. They had flown over 30,000 combat missions, had never lost a single bomber they had accompanied into Axis airspace, and had out-performed similar groups of American airmen. They had struggled against both racial segregation and America’s adversaries, triumphing over both, suffering heroic losses, and producing numerous ace fighters. Their highly decorated bravery and valor led to the dismantling of racial segregation in the armed forces, and helped pave the way for America’s acceptance of racial diversity, both in the armed forces and in our society at large.
After this information had been presented, our group began to move forward to the next monument of note, but I was suddenly unable to put one foot in front of the other. I was aware we’d just received a large dose of propaganda for our breakfast, and I began to attempt, diplomatically and cautiously, to pose gentle objections. On the faces of the children in our group, there wasn’t the remotest trace of comprehension of my objections. In the faces of the adults, I perceived a familiar combination of mild dread and annoyance, the kind that appears whenever anyone dares to contradict the authority of an official line of chicken manure.
My softly worded contradictions were politely pushed aside, and we continued our tour. But I remember looking at the towheads, cavorting amongst the headstones in the sunlight, and being filled with a terrible despair for their future.
They’d been fed a pack of lies.
