Charlie Gard. Alfie Evans. Progressive Democrats. Candace Owens. Kanye West. Karl Marx.
You might ask what two children from the UK have in common with a black conservative woman, a rapper, progressive Democrats and Karl Marx.
Charlie Gard was the child of Chris and Connie Gard who was diagnosed as having a genetic disease so rare that only 15 other people in the world had the same diagnosis. Even though Charlie’s parents raised over $1.8 million to bring Charlie to the US for a experimental treatment, the UK government, through the NHS, denied Charlie’s parents the opportunity to even try, denying their efforts to even take Charlie out of the country. The UK effectively sentenced little 10-month-old Charlie to a “death with dignity” rather than allow his parents to try everything within their power to save their child. Charlie Gard died on July 28, 2017.
The Alfie Evans case is very similar to that of Charlie Gard. Alfie is 23 months old, has a terminal diagnosis and even though Italy has offered to treat him (going to the extreme of actually granting Alfie Italian citizenship), the UK government has forbidden his parents from taking him out of the country and have ordered his life support be terminated. Alfie’s parents are giving him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to keep him alive.
For the second time in a year, the UK has effectively sentenced a child to death.
Imagine a state telling you that you can’t even try to save your child because they have decided that it isn’t worth the effort.
Candace Owens (a black conservative) and Kanye West (not a black conservative) are linked in a “controversy” because Owens accurately pointed out to #blacklivesmatter that Democrats like their slaves like they take their coffee – black:
“I can guarantee what you’re seeing happening is victim mentality versus victor mentality … Victim mentality is not cool. I don’t know why people like being oppressed. It’s the weirdest thing I ever heard: “I love oppression. We’re oppressed. 400 years of slavery, Jim Crow.” Which, by the way, none of you guys lived through. Your grandparents did.
…You’re not living through anything right now. You’re overly privileged Americans.”
Candace Owens was immediately attacked by progressive Democrats, and in the vilest of manners. Tom Arnold (washed up actor notable only for being married to Rosanne Barr) tweeted that Owens was a fraud and should just go “…suck racist d**k”.
Kanye West’s thoughtcrime/wrongthink?
These seven words: “I love the way Candace Owens thinks.”
Marx wraps this up for us in a neat package.
Marx despised religion because he reasoned that for communism to work, for government to have the power to plan and decide the total path for the people, there could be no authority greater than the state. If any individual could challenge the dictates of the state due to the teachings of God, the game falls apart. The contemporary vessel of communism, progressivism, is no different. No dissent can be allowed or the progressive con falls apart – and do not be fooled, progressivism is nothing less than a confidence game, a massive Ponzi scheme in which every member, even those who know it is a con, must stay in the game.
If one person stands up and calls BS on the progressive agenda, then more might follow. The parents of Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans could never be allowed to attempt to save their children for one reason. They might succeed – and if they did and other people see that they did – the power of the state is destroyed.
Better a few children die than the state’s supremacy over life and death be challenged.
Same with Kanye and Candace. Conservative blacks are not supposed to exist. Free thinking blacks like Kanye are not supposed to speak out. My goodness, if blacks ever realize thinking for themselves (even if they have widely varying ideas like Kanye – he is no conservative) is permitted, they might just stop voting as a bloc for progressives.
Progressive Democrats have torn this page out of Marx’s Communist Manifesto – they buy into the belief that there can be no power greater than that of the state – and if a few children must die or people must be destroyed to protect the power of the state, so be it.
As Stalin said, you have to crack a few eggs to make an omelet.
