Midnight repost: Genocide is coming to America

Rick, stating the truth in Casablanca
Will the murder and mutilation of innocent children
finally wake Americans up?

Considering the recent horrible murders of three young school children as well as three adults at Covenant School, a Christian elementary school in Nashville, merely because some sexually confused woman (not a “trans-person” as the insane insist we call her) decided it was her right to murder people, I thought it might be worthwhile to post my essay below from July 2020. In it I predicted that mass murder by the left was only around the corner, if the good people of America did not finally wake up and take seriously the madness that is taking over that part of the political spectrum.

I am still unsure whether ordinary decent Americans have finally awakened, but it appears the recent school violence might finally be providing the spark. We shall see.

Genocide is coming to America

In my last visit to Israel in 2018, my brother and sister-in-law took me sight-seeing to the northern parts of Israel near the Sea of Galilee. On our first night, we stayed at the home of one of their older friends, a man in his seventies.

That night we sat around their kitchen table so that they could catch up on family matters. At one point in the conversation our host reminisced about an older woman, now gone, who he had known in his childhood in the 1950s who had lived in Germany before and during World War II and had survived a concentration camp.

To paraphrase the story he told us, what this woman always remembered most starkly about that time, especially in the 1930s, was how difficult it was to get German friends who were not Jewish to believe the horrors she and other Jews were going through. To her, their calm nonchalant dismissal of the Nazi bigotry and oppression of Jews — too unbelievable to take seriously — was what had horrified her the most. Even twenty years later, it was this dismissal that appalled her the most, despite her time in a concentration camp and the death she had seen around her.

As he told us this story, what struck me was how similar my own experience has been. Time after time for the past four decades my liberal friends and relatives have refused to believe anything I say to them — always based on actual events — about politics and the growing corruption and bigotry within the Democratic Party. Like those decent Germans in the 1930s, these decent Americans find reasons to quickly dismiss what I say, without making any effort to find out if there is any merit to it.

In fact, less than two days after this very conversation it happened again. At one point I made mention to my brother, who remains a very typical Jewish liberal, the growing pro-Democrat partisan extremism of modern American journalism, to the point of blackballing conservative writers. He immediately told me that couldn’t be true. When I then told him I have experienced this shunning personally because of my political positions, often resulting in the loss of jobs and the rejection of my writing, he shrugged, giving me that same look of dismissal that I am sure that German woman in 1930s Germany saw many times. What I said was simply too unbelievable to be true, even though I had actually experienced it.

In the past few weeks the United States has had the following stories, all also clearly too unbelievable to be true. First we have documented evidence that the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter organization — that many decent people and large corporations are now throwing lots of money and support to — believes whites are subhuman and should be wiped out.

“Whiteness is not humxness,” the statement begins. “infact, white skin is sub-humxn.” The post goes on to present a genetics-based argument centred on melanin and enzyme. “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” the post reads towards the end. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.” [emphasis mine]

I could go into detail about the aggressive Marxist and violent agenda of Black Lives Matter, but they form only a small part of the general hateful trend.

Consider Senator Tammy Duckforth (D-Illinois). After Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech, she summed it up like so, “He spent all his time talking about dead traitors,” such as many Confederate war heroes.

As Charles Cooke at the National Review correctly noted,

This is a flat-out lie. It is entirely untrue. It is invented from whole cloth. You can read the speech here and see for yourself. One doesn’t have to like President Trump — or to have enjoyed his speech — in order to acknowledge that Duckworth is lying. One needs only to read what was said.

Not only did Trump spend only a small portion of his speech discussing the Civil War, when he did he focused on Lincoln and his successful effort to end slavery.

Duckworth’s lies here however are only a small example. Lying and slander has become for the Democratic Party its standard operating procedure, no different than the methods used by the Nazis.

So also has outright bigotry become normalized among Democratic politicians. For example, during a zoom meeting of a local New York City education council, one member became outraged because another member (Thomas Wrocklege), who happened to be white, held a a black child of a friend on his lap.

This innocent image of a man holding a child was the target of scorn by his fellow council members. Rachel Broshi told Wrocklage, “It hurts people when they see a white man bouncing a brown baby on their lap and they don’t know the context. That is harmful.”

Broshi, and several other council members, argued that the image of a white man holding a black child was inherently racist. When Wrocklage asked Broshi to explain why holding a friend’s nephew was racist merely due to their differing races, Broshi refused, yelling at Wrocklage, “Read a book. Read Ibram Kendi. Read ‘White Fragility.’ Read ‘How to Talk to White People.’”

Hard to believe, eh? The problem is that it happened, and worse, it will be impossible to get ordinary Democrats to believe it.

Then there is the student who had been accepted to Marquette University, posted a pro-Trump video of herself, and then found the university threatening to rescind that acceptance because of her conservative beliefs, even as she was menaced repeatedly on social media for those beliefs.

Pfefferle’s post has been watched nearly 600,000 times and has since caught the attention of the Marquette community, some of whom began harassing Pfefferle. Others threatened her life. “I hope you get shot,” one commenter told Pfefferle. “I’d pray for you but you’re not worth it,” another user added.

“I was extremely disappointed by the incendiary comments,” Pfefferle told The College Fix in an interview. “The response from my peers has been repulsive.”

Pfefferle explained that following the TikTok, she was contacted by Brian Troyer, dean of undergraduate admissions at Marquette, who she said told her her acceptance to the school was far from certain. “[He] had the heart to tell me I wasn’t a student,” Pfefferle said. “This means that my classification is still in limbo and is currently being decided by the administration. I have been accepted, I paid for my housing, I have my roommates, I even have a complete class schedule. If that doesn’t make me a student, what does?”

Some Marquette administrators also asked Pfefferle a series of questions meant to judge her morals, she said. [emphasis mine]

Marquette officials have since backed off and reassured her that her acceptance will not be revoked, but I do not envy her. Should she continue to publicly express her political views, she should expect some quite vile treatment once a full time student there, not incomparable to the bigotry and violence experienced by Jews in 1930s Germany.

I could go on and on. The above stories are only a small sample from the past few days, and only give a taste of similar stories that have been never-ending practically every day since early in the 2016 election campaign, beginning with actual rioting and violence against attendees at various Trump election rallies.

And yet, though these examples of leftist bigotry and oppression actually happened, I know from experience, even recent experience, that it will be nigh on impossible to get many Americans who have traditionally aligned themselves with the Democratic Party to believe them.

Thus, the reason I fear that genocide is coming to America. My fear is not engendered because of the documented examples above of individuals spewing hate and the desire to kill their enemies. My fear exists because, though these hate-mongers really exist and have made clear their hate, too many decent Americans who are not filled with hate will simply look the other way. It doesn’t involve them, and besides, this is just too unbelievable to take seriously.

Instead, they will continue to make believe the documented facts above don’t exist, and so these evil people will gain in political strength and support, and will eventually be in a position of power to instigate their programs of hate and genocide.

Though these power-hungry thugs will be personally responsible for the evil they do, the larger blame will fall on the millions of Americans who looked the other way when something could have been done to stop them.

As always, I hope I am wrong. I hope that my past and recent experience is not a prediction of the future, that these same liberal but decent Americans are finally waking up. Though I remain pessimistic, no one will celebrate more than I if I discover I am wrong come election day.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount.

    I knew they sold DDT as being safe and they blew it in big clouds around neighborhoods to kill mosquitoes, but I never saw that.

    (And they believed it so much they were willing to eat it? Really? It kills mosquitoes but it is not going to affect you in any negative manner? Perception is reality and what is going on particularly in American politics today is a stark example of this perception on many levels. And that perception has been a long time being crafted, this is “Fundamental Change”. We as Americans are in a political territory that is outside of the normal formerly accepted rules of conduct related to governance.

    Our politics has been highjacked very stealthily and efficiently by the extreme radical Leftists and Marxists among us and they have lets say “adjusted” through psychological means the minds of many of our friends and neighbors in the name of “fairness’, “equity” and “social justice”. And some or all of them are apparently willing to not say STOP! There can and will be change and adjustments made and that is the natural way of things. All systems seek their new balance. The only question is can you / we survive the new balance?)

    Sound familiar, Dr. F? This experimental “special” drug is for your own good, and you must take it at least 5 times and then once a year for the rest of your life. Not to mention that the drug companies have, and I assume still kick back to government 10’s of millions to those who are pushing it. (Evil bastards) Our system is broken and there are no guarantees.

    And I suppose most all creations of man can have their proper applications in particular circumstances, even plutonium has its uses. DDT did / does kill mosquitoes and mosquitoes are probably the biggest killer of human beings in Africa and the world. Choose your solution to your problem, but there may be unforeseen long-term consequences.

    Even if you are acting with the best intentions.

    But they didn’t fool the old man who lives in a grass hut.

    Strategy Over Morality, do you see it yet?

    Here’s another one for this file, from Robert P George yesterday on Twitter:

    Things are spinning utterly out of control on American campuses. Now a well-established scholar–an endowed chair holder at Wayne State University–has openly encouraged his fellow progressives to murder, rather than shout down, speakers he regards as “bigots” and “transphobes.”

    Wayne State’s President, M. Roy Wilson, has strongly condemned the professor’s irresponsible rhetoric, noting that the University has called it to the attention of law enforcement. Wilson suggests that the prof’s statement is not 1st Amendment protected and may be criminal.

    I share your concern regarding the left’s increasing propensity for violence and the unwillingness of so many to face up to it. I quibble regarding use of the word “genocide.”

    In pre-war Germany, Jews were a comparatively small minority. Though conservatives may not be a majority, they are not a small minority. And they own a disproportionate share of the guns.

    I fear the country descending into something like Northern Ireland, which is horrific enough, albeit not genocide.

  • Too many among us have distanced themselves from respecting the life and liberty of the individual, instead directing their respect towards those who are proclaimed as having all the answers (such as the authors of the CRT-infused texts mentioned in this post).

    They, like those authors, now see the world not as Left vs. Right, But as (themselves as) Normal vs. The Evil Other That Deserves No Respect.

    That attitude is the precursor to Inquisitions, Hodolmors , Holocausts, and Killing Fields throughout history..

    And it has been growing among us, and likely still is. It is what unlocks the rage we see from students and faculty when someone comes on campus to challenge their orthodoxy. It is what leads people to Burn, Loot, Murder in the name of “social justice”.

    And what enables its growth and eventual breakout into a culture of outright oppression and death, is the indifference of others, rendered comfortable and numb by their trust that life will go on as it is today in the Best of All Possible Worlds they have been led to believe is their world …

    … and value being “nice”, more than their – and their neighbors’ – rights.

    It seems to me that the same spirit that the Nazis followed, is the one the liberals are now following. Where peace demonstrations by conservatives are outlawed and violent protests by liberals are tolerated. (see Canada and the Freedom Convoy)

  • James Street

    I not optimistic. Ramping up division and violence is one of the swamp’s tools to destroy America. This headline nails it: “Democrats’ Scheme Revealed: If You Tell Mentally Ill Kids That People Disagreeing With Them Is ‘Genocide,’ Eventually They’ll Pick up Weapons”

    The left isn’t harshly condemning the violence because it’s part of their plan. They and mainstream media are spinning this that the shootings were justified because conservative Christians are a “hate group”, “white supremacists” and “Nazis” because conservative Christians don’t believe in the sexualization of children, and they don’t believe that children should be surgically genitally mutilated and injected with hormones and other chemicals to help them “transition”.

    Here’s a video of Biden laughing about the shooting:
    Reporter: “Do you believe that Christians were targeted at the Nashville School shooting? Do you believe that Christians were targeted?”
    Biden: “I have no idea.”
    Reporter: “Josh Hawley believes they were. What do you say to that?”
    Biden: “I probably don’t then” (laughs). “I’m joking.”

    The violence is part of their plan.
