Armstrong and the Blame Game
Below is Scott's latest essay, in which he contends that democrats have some sort of devious plot to unite the gay and Muslim community against everyone else. I completely disagree with Scott, which necessarily assumes that Islam or gun control advocates are chumps. But I'll run his essay because i believe in a diversity of views and i have no lock on the truth. .
What we are witnessing in the Democratic/Media/Gay Right’s response to the Orlando Terror attack is them pointing the finger of blame at “the majority” for the horrific actions of an Islamic extremist. This is just the latest example of the Democratic Party's long running strategy of gaining and holding electoral power by uniting minority populations against the majority.
This approach is reminiscent of the tactics deployed by European powers in their efforts to colonize the middle east and Africa. They empowered and united the minority populations against the majority population. Once in power the minority populations had no choice but to do the bidding of their colonial masters for if they ever lost power they would be destroyed by the vengeful majority.
Look at Syria today, it is a relic of that system. Assad is the leader of the controlling minority populations, Shiite, Alawis, Druzes, Christians..., against the majority Sunni population. There is no way to surrender without a bloodbath of reprisal. That's why they will fight to the death.
In America the Democratic Party has successfully employed this same strategy. They have united many minority populations on the fact that they are minorities. That is all they have in common, but the Democrats use victimization to unite them against the majority who they portray as "oppressors". This is exactly where America is today and why one minority, “Gays”, will never blame another minority, “Muslims” for anything, even this horrific shooting. Instead everything must be the fault of the majority. Hence the Democrats' answer to a radical Muslim shooting people because they are Gay is gun control. And who is blocking “sensible” gun control? Why it’s the usual suspects, the majority; 2nd amendment supporters/NRA members /The Republican Party/Rural America/ the suburbs.
While this strategy has proven its worth throughout history, it always results in a country divided against itself; the population sorted along base categories such as tribal affiliations, or religion. In our case it is race, gender, religion, sexual preference...How quickly the media and the rest of us have forgotten the term "post-racial". In fact it is now a bad word because certain parties find racial distinctions too valuable to put aside. Now 50 people are dead and another 50 are wounded simply because they were Gay. The Democrats and their collaborators are seeing to it that the blame will not rest just on the shooter but their political opposition as well. It is sad to see Gay leaders acting as mere apparatchiks to such a cynical and self serving political ploy.
