Maybe it’s sadly just human nature to dislike people “different” from us. Remember the 90s, when the Hutu tribal people of Rwanda slaughtered a million Tutsi people because…well, they weren’t Hutus? Or the Serbs’ war on Bosnians. How about book burning in Nazi Germany, where not only people but ideas were rounded up and destroyed, in the pursuit of a purified Aryan nation.
Like you, I’d prefer to believe civilized societies have progressed beyond that kind of vitriolic idiocy. America, after all, is a mixing pot, a nation of free speech and ideas where differences are not only tolerated but embraced. Peace, love, kindness and tolerance, the mantra arguably of the progressive left.
Only…not in uberliberal California, the land of plenty where dudes and dudettes can “chill” year-’round in the warm sunshine and invigorating ocean spray. Where self indulgence, materialism and instant gratification have been elevated to the status of religion. At the University of California at Berkeley, people with different ideas—political conservatives invited to the campus to speak—are met not with dissent, but with mace, clubs, and fiery riots. “Keep the haters out!” they scream, backing it up with sticks and stones, the sole reason apparently because the conservatives, the “haters”, simply don’t think like them. All done in the name of peace, tolerance, inclusiveness and love.
Of course we all know conservatives—Reagan, Bush, Eisenhower—aren’t haters. They simply see a different path to national well being than do the liberals. But like the Hutus, Nazis and Serbs of yesterday, Californians don’t see it that way. And now our West Coast cousins have had a bellyful of us all. A move is underfoot in California to secede from the Union, from the United States of America. It’s called Calexit, a clumsy takeoff of “Brexit” where Britain voted to leave the European Union. Now many of us would say “so what,” no harm—no foul. Don’t let the door hit you in the rear on your way out. In fact, an ingenious man has now started a business to help conservatives escape from La-La Land and relocate in sane and safe Texas.
But President Trump, always a step ahead, has developed a strategy for dealing with Calexit. And here are his Top Ten strategies if California secedes:
It’s great to know America is prepared for any eventuality!
