They went ahead and did it

The Americans voted for a narrow-minded radical race pimp as president. It really wasn't close. As I said before, to see what's going to happen to the U.S., all you have to do is look at the Episcopal church. Now you're going to discover that this isn't a fluke, but the kick on the door that brings the whole rotten structure down. Conservatives who reassured themselves all along that their country was really strong and sound at heart are going to discover that that was all a facade; the rot has been undermining them for years, and now the full extent of the decay is going to be obvious to all.

My predictions: Like the conservatives in TEC, conservatives (especially the intellectuals) will take a long time to realize the gravity of the situation. They'll spend the next two years crafting elaborate compliments to the other side, for which no one will thank them. and when the next election comes, they'll suddenly discover that their position has been so undermined by legal action and legislative restrictions that they have no chance of winning ever again. Like the ancien regime in France, they'll still be waiting for their valets to come and powder their wigs when the Revolutionary Guard march in to take them away. The Republicans will degenerate into a sauve qui peut scramble of sellouts and cowed dhimmis.

The first order of business will be the Fairness Doctrine. Expect show-trials of big-name conservative media people, like Rush Limbaugh At first it will be on pretexts other than free speech. The "We got Al Capone for mail fraud" strategy, at first. The Martha Stewart and Conrad Black trials show how easy it is, when you've got the federal treasury at your back - a motivated federal prosecutor can put anyone in the country in prison any time he wants. There were already a few practice flights done in Limbaugh's case. It'll happen for real next time. Then expect Hate Speech Tribunals like we have in Canada, to start in on the bloggers. It won't take too many trials before the smaller ones learn to keep their mouths shut.

Churches (I mean REAL churches, like the Catholic Church - not fake ones like Obama's and TEC) will have their tax-exempt status withdrawn, in an attempt to starve them into silence. When that doesn't work, their members will be prosecuted before the federal Human Rights Tribunals, as they are being in Canada, drawing prison terms. Then again, we'll discover that the Catholic Church (and Christianity) aren't nearly as widespread in America as polls during the easy, pre-persecution days led us to believe. The cachet of identifying oneself as Catholic or Christian will dissipate quickly, as the Dear Leader makes it clear that this competing loyalty is not acceptable, and only the genuine faithful will be left. Christians will turn out to be a hated minority after all.

Joe Biden won't survive his term.

America will cut and run in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Israel will be abandoned. The American military will be turned into a Pretorian Guard to protect the Obama regime.

Well, that's about all I can handle for one morning. Thank goodness it's a beautiful warm Indian Summer day - if it were cold and rainy, I'd just sit in front of the computer reading one dire conservative blog after another. As it is, I've got to bundle up the raspberry canes and get one last lawn-mowing in before the winter closes everything down.

As always, I have to thank you for saying what I am not articulate enough to express.
Please do not be deterred from blogging. I am going to purge all political posts from my blog later today, after one last comment.
Stay safe, I shall continue to pray for you.

It can't be such a bad day. It looks like I beat Dean in predictions for the almost infinityist time, just as Dean as beaten me in every Canadian election except one since 1974.

There will be a huge battle between all factions in the conservative movement, who will follow instincts and form, not a circular, but a rectangular firing squad. The battle between social conservatives and libertines (aka libertarians) will be particularly vicious.

Conservatives'chances of winning in the future are harmed most because leftists have taken to heart East German Communist Bertold Brecht's joke to heart: "The government has declared non-confidence in the people. Let us elect a new people." [I wonder if you can give a more accurate translation of the original ;) .] The increasing Hispanic vote in the U.S. makes it harder and harder for conservatives to win. Uninhibited Hispanic immigration will ensure this trend continues, even if the Democrats do not enact free-pass-to-citizenship laws. Through uninhibited immigration, the Democrats have chosen themselves a new electorate.

Ironically the one group that has proven itself to be firmly in favour of social conservative values in one respect at least is is -- wait for it -- blacks. It looks like homosexual marriage bans in Florida and California will survive only due to overwhelming black support.

The outlook isn't as bleak as you see it. But it could be if conservatives don't take a few days to congratulate Sen. Obama, and then dedicate themselves anew to THINKING and fighting. It is the thinking spirit that has declined so much in the last 8 years. It was thinking that saved the U.S. conservative movement in the 60s, when, like today, all seemed lost.

I'm not that pessimistic. If Barry tries to run hard-left and starts soaking "the rich," unemployment soars, the economy tanks and all those idiot kids who prattled on and on about The One will be The Ones taking your order at McDonald's. If he tries to abandon Israel, the Jews abandon him, the economy works against him and he finds himself with a hostile Congress in two years.

As for the Fairness Doctrine, I'm not worried about it. The Dems can try to reinstitute it but I doubt they will. Simply because for every complaint brought against Rush Limbaugh by the left, two or three complaint can be brought by the right against any cable or satellite company that carries MSNBC or, well, just about every major American newspaper.

Will any of them go anywhere? Probably not. But if enough of them are brought by the right, things bog down completely, whoever is in charge of all this is buried in complaints and the Fairness Doctrine essentially becomes meaningless.

Re the Fairness Doctrine:

Chris is wrong. It would not apply to any cable or satellite provider or station; they are unregulated by U. S. communication law, which applies only to those outlets broadcating on frequencies doled out by the government (i.e., regular TV and radio) (That's why porn goes out on cable/satellite without restriction).

That's what's devastating about it...if the Fairness Doctrine was applied, it would only essentially impact conservative talk radio shows. They could follow 3 hours of Rush with 3 hours of some Liberal...bur no one listens to Liberal talk hosts. That's why Air America failed and went bankrupt.

I predict the Fairness Doctrine in its malicious forms will never be applied. Know why? 2 reasons. 1st some vestigial support from some Liberals for fre speech... 2nd...many *liberals* listen to and enjoy Rush et al.

Ann Coulter ended her column today, with this:
For now, we have a new president-elect. In the spirit of reaching across the aisle, we owe it to the Democrats to show their president the exact same kind of respect and loyalty that they have shown our recent Republican president.
