                It has come to this.

                A white Democrat presidential candidate, the former Governor of Maryland, decides that he must apologize for expressing the self-evident truth that "white lives matter." 

                The groveling Quisling in question is Martin O'Malley, and he was actually booed off the stage by afro-racist democrats after he dared insinuate that the lives of whites, Hispanics, and Asians might be just as important as the lives of blacks.  Specifically, after O’Malley said, “Every life matters. And that is why this issue is so important.  Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter,” the angry rabble booed and shouted at him.

                Rather than standing up to this howling mob, O'Malley quickly capitulated to them in an act of shameful racial treachery.  He even went so far as to expressly recant, cravenly conceding that his indisputable statement – i.e., that "white lives matter" – was a "mistake."

                Think for a moment about the incredible level of abject cowardice and self-hatred to which such a man has descended.  In order to appease the demands of a malicious crowd of race-baiting radicals, this sorry excuse for an American is willing to recant his statement that "white lives" and "all lives" matter -- therefore implying that they do not matter, and that only black lives matter.

                Someone should remind this deranged poltroon that his wife and daughters (if he has any) are living "white lives," and that his cowardly kowtow to the frenzied mobs of the so-called Netroots Nation demonstrates his willingness to subordinate the members of his own family to the assertions of black primacy that the shameless Democratic Party has elevated to the status of ideological dogma.

                One's first impulse is to exclaim, "That's insane."  But the sad reality is that O'Malley, and millions of flustered whites like him, are not really insane.  It is rather that their values, morals, and notions of personal and familial self-worth have been twisted into a grotesque parody of the unwarranted white guilt harbored by liberals, democrats, and even many republicans far beyond its proper expiration date.

                As outlined in SR's last post, the ultra-radicalism of today's leftist Democratic hordes has taken on the character of the crazed Red Guards in China's disastrous Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (GPCR).  Even more disturbingly, millions of craven Americans are succumbing passively to this radical onslaught, just as the Chinese nation, to its enormous cost, allowed itself to be coerced and intimidated by mobs of radical youths who could have been quickly subdued by even a modicum of determined and organized resistance.

                In the face of the racial radicals' subversive exploitation of the slogan that "black lives matter," coupled with its obnoxious and hateful corollary that it is heresy to insist that white lives matter just as much, one is forced to ask:  Where is the White Anger?  When will a majority of white Americans come to grips with the fact, long recognized by SR and other truth-telling outlets, that the anti-white and anti-law enforcement animus of the racial radicals and their Democratic and liberal allies presents a serious threat that must be acknowledged, resisted, and overcome?

                Perhaps the tipping point will be reached when the radical racialists push their current campaign to denigrate the leading white icons of American history to a level of lunacy that even the most passive and feckless of white Americans will find intolerable.

       If the racial radicals come for Stonewall, it could be an ugly Third Manassas
                This anti-historical madness came to a head following the murder of a group of innocent black church-goers by a deranged white madman in South Carolina.  The proper reaction to this appalling tragedy would have been sincere mourning for the victims, strong support and sympathy for their surviving families, and an uncompromising criminal prosecution of the evil perpetrator to assure his prompt execution.

                Instead, both black and white racial agitators exploited the event to instigate a fanatical, rabid assault on the white race, white southern heritage, the Confederacy, and the many worthy heroes of the Confederacy during the Civil War.

                First, the Governor of South Carolina succumbed to pressure from racial agitators and their Democrat and media allies and spinelessly signed sacrificial legislation to remove the Confederate flag from the state capitol grounds.  That flag had flown there harmlessly for decades with no discernible adverse effect on blacks or whites.  Its removal was nothing more than a deliberate insult and repudiation to southern heritage and traditions.  It was done to appease and ingratiate racial agitators and their supporters, to the deliberate detriment of southern white traditionalists who honor and respect the Confederate flag for reasons of culture and heritage rather than racial animus.

                But the removal of that flag was only the beginning of an expanding racial assault on all the memorials, statues, and other relics that commemorate the brave men who served honorably on the Confederate side in the Civil War. This was and is a deliberate and direct attack on the heritage and ancestry of millions of decent American southerners.

                In the benighted city of Memphis, the vindictive City Council voted unanimously to exhume the body of Confederate General Nathan Bedford, as well as that of his wife, and move it to another location.  When the city did not move quickly enough to execute this act of wretched barbarism due to legal barriers, a lawless horde from something laughably called the Commission on Religion and Racism grabbed shovels and dug up a patch of ground near the General's grave. 

                In Atlanta, meanwhile, the racialist radicals are contemplating an even more audacious assault on southern heritage and sensibilities, not to mention basic American history.  There, the spiteful extremists of the NAACP are demanding that the gigantic historical monument to the three most revered leaders of the Confederacy – Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis – be sandblasted into oblivion from the Rushmore-like memorial at Stone Mountain, Georgia. 

                With this outrageous demand, the Atlanta NAACP places itself in the company of such fellow barbarians as Afghanistan's notorious Taliban, who earned international condemnation and contempt when they blasted the revered mountain-side sculptures of the Buddhas of Bamiyan from the cliffs on which they had been sculpted.  Fortunately, the organization responsible for the Stone Mountain Memorial is private and self-supporting, so these racist Philistenes will not be able to achieve their boorish objective by simply intimidating spineless governors or legislators.

                Still, the crude logic of the afro-racist attack on all things commemorating the Confederacy may lead to some testy confrontations that these agitators may yet come to regret.  Already, in Arkansas, Florida, Tennessee, and Oklahoma, staunch supporters of Southern heritage have rallied in aggressive support of the Confederate flag in demonstrations, motorcades, truck convoys, and biker rallies.  

                If the anti-Confederate marauders try to take on, for example, the revered statue of Stonewall Jackson that proudly holds center-stage at the First Manassas Battlefield in Virginia, they might find themselves facing a phalanx of furious physical opposition that would make them wish they were back in the state legislature, facing only gutless and submissive politicians.  

        Deranged Democrats want to disassociate themselves from the great Thomas Jefferson

                But it is the gutless and submissive politicians of the Democratic Party that have allowed the race-based assault against the icons of American history to be extended beyond the relatively "soft targets" of the Confederacy.  Now the left's Racial Red Guards have turned their crazed eyes to the Nation's most revered Patriots and Founding Fathers.

                The Democratic Party of Connecticut has taken the lead in this lunacy.  The Democratic State Central Committee – which not only sounds like something straight out of Maoist China, but acts accordingly – recently voted unanimously to expunge the names of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson from the language it had long used to commemorate the party's heritage in describing the party's annual dinner.  Unsurprisingly, they acted in abject submission to the urgings of the racially relentless NAACP.  The accompanying resolution passed by these brain-addled poltroons stated:  "As members of the Democratic Party, we are proud of our history as the party of inclusion.  Democrats have led the way on civil rights, LGBT equality and equal rights for women. … It is only fitting that the name of the party's most visible annual event reflects our dedication to diversity and forward-looking vision.''  So much for the two presidents who have long stood at the top of the traditional Democratic Party's roster of heroes.

                Apart from the blatant falsehoods in the Party's statement – Republicans, not Democrats, led the way in voting for the Civil Right Act of 1964, for example – it is revealing that these pettifogging Democrats are so committed to obliterating commemoration of the great Thomas Jefferson while embracing the canard of so-called "LGBT equality." 

                Jefferson was not only one of the foremost giants among the Founding Fathers, and not only the author of the Declaration of Independence, but one of the most forceful advocates of the very democratic principles that the so-called Democratic Party purports to embrace.  A genuine Renaissance Man and diversified inventor, he mastered disciplines ranging from politics to philosophy to architecture to agronomy. On top of all that, he authored the historic Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom (the precursor of the First Amendment's religion clauses) and was the Father of the University of Virginia, one of America's earliest and greatest universities.  

               So extensive were Jefferson's accomplishments that President Jack Kennedy once quipped, when honoring a group of Nobel Prize winners gathered at the White House, "I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."  It is indeed depressing to note how far the Democratic Party has descended from the days when the likes of Jack Kennedy had a keen appreciation for the true greats of American history, unfiltered by the twisted resentments of party constituencies.

                In short, Thomas Jefferson puts to abject shame the mental and moral midgets who seek to denigrate his legacy. Although he did own large numbers of slaves -- an institution embedded in the southern plantation system which men like Jefferson inherited, rather than supported – he supported the gradual emancipation of  the slaves as early as 1779.  He supported a gradualist approach rather than immediate and unconditional emancipation because he believed, with good reason, that releasing unprepared slaves with no place to go and no practical means to support themselves would bring misfortune rather than good fortune.  

               But in the tiny, race-obsessed minds of today's Democrats and radical afro-racists, Jefferson's inherited status as a slave-owner supersedes all his historical achievements, including those which helped provide these ingrates the very freedoms they exercise in seeking to defame one of the genuine giants of American History.

                Ravenous with the media-fueled successes of their attacks on the white icons of the Civil War, and now even the Revolutionary War, America's race-obsessed latter-day Red Guards might next turn their twisted rage against the greatest icon of all, George Washington himself.  Should this vengeful movement descend to such shameful and lunatic depths, it may at last foment the dormant anger of not only heretofore docile white patriots, but outraged patriots of all races.

            As a somewhat close student of Chinese history, I had always thought that the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (GPCR) of 1966-74, initiated by Mao Zedong, was the most extreme example of an entire nation undergoing a form of mass insanity, or mass mind alteration, in modern times.  But what remains of the erstwhile United States is presently experiencing a collective surrender of reason that in many respects is even more radical and insidious. 

             The Cultural Revolution, after all, only worsened a nation and political culture that was already immersed in extreme communist totalitarianism and mass conformity.  In contrast, the currently deranged United States remained at least a modestly reasonable democratic republic, with considerable remaining strongholds of liberty and individualism, as recently as 2008. 

                But now those strongholds and remnants of liberty and decency are rapidly disappearing, as American continues its depressing descent into a destructive and nasty cultural revolution of its own.

             China's Red Guards:  Forerunners of Mass Madness in Obama's America

                During the GPCR, China was essentially taken over by hordes of radical Maoist youth, known as Red Guards.  They roamed the country at will, imposing their most extreme notions of Maoist political correctness upon a cowed and craven citizenry.  With almost no tradition of individualism or civil liberties, there was no one to resist or confront the mindless political lunacy that swept across China.

                A striking hallmark of the GPCR was its utter contempt for Chinese cultural or historical traditions – even recent ones.  Not even the most revered colleagues of Mao, who had been with him through the Long March to the triumphant takeover of Beijing in 1949, were immune from the ravenous attacks of the Red Guards.  Men who had been revolutionary icons were pilloried, humiliated, and driven to "re-education camps" when the Red Guard mobs attacked them as "capitalist roaders" or "bourgeoisie reactionaries." 

                The GPCR and the Red Guards then set out to destroy what they referred to as "The Four Olds" – old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas.  Mao specifically charged his cadres to attack and destroy "traditional values," with no distinction between good ones (like respect for education) and bad ones (like subordination of women).  Any resistance to this monolithic political and cultural upheaval was ruthlessly suppressed.  Almost overnight, the ideas, standards, and beliefs that had been embraced and accepted by virtually the entire Chinese nation were deemed anathema, and anyone who clung to them – or even failed to condemn them with sufficient conviction – was subjected to public humiliation, political show trials, or banishment to the Chinese equivalents of the Gulag in Xinjiang or other grim hinterlands.

                Which brings us to America in 2015:  the era of the lawless Obama presidency, the oligarchical tyranny of a corrupt U.S. Supreme Court, a supine and spineless Congress, and a cowed conformist populace that is only too glad to surrender the liberties and values bequeathed to them by their generational betters.

                All these circumstance have combined to subject the United States to a dark and degenerate cultural revolution of its own, completely upending the traditions, standards, and moral principles bequeathed to us by the giants and geniuses of the American Revolution, the Civil War, and other pillars of our history.

                Just as Mao and his allies unleashed cadres of rabid Red Guards to impose monolithic Mao Thought upon the Chinese people, Obama, the Supreme Court "Gang of Five," and their media minions have unleashed a political and cultural tyranny that is making mincemeat of constitutional government, individual liberties, and the longstanding moral and cultural traditions of the United States.

                Examples of America's overnight descent into a perverse cultural and political degeneracy abound.  Both high and low, prominent and nameless, legions of lost Americans have suddenly turned their backs on values, beliefs, standards, and traditions that, only yesterday, they firmly embraced.

                What was immoral and evil for nearly all of human history, has suddenly, and inexplicably, become admirable and good.  Conversely, beliefs and standards that were honored and accepted by virtually all Americans and other civilized humans for millennia, and as recently as two decades ago, are now condemned and reviled as not only wrong and mean-spirited, but deserving of societal condemnation and persecution.  The society's most basic moral beliefs and principles have been turned utterly upside down in less than two decades, and in the case of millions of Americans, in a matter of several years.

                This complete and sudden reversal – not merely change, but utter reversal – of accepted standards and norms has been most emphatic in the area of sexual morality and the institution of marriage.  This is probably the most radical and fundamental change brought about by the American Cultural Revolution (ACR) – especially if one reviews where we recently were, and where we now are, over a very short span of historical time.

                Americans of all stripes generally agree on describing the men and women who combined to defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan in World War II as the Greatest Generation.  And there can be no doubt that the revered members of the Greatest Generation almost uniformly considered homosexual activity disgusting, harmful, and fundamentally immoral.  Further, the warped concept of so-called same-sex marriage would have been so utterly bizarre to the men and women of the 1940's (and the 50's, 60's, and 70's, for that matter) that their only response to a question of whether they approved of it would have been:  "Are you out of your mind?  What lunatic came up with that sick idea?"  

               There is no exaggeration in these statements of simple historical truth.  That is "the way we were," plain and simple.

                American society's overwhelming disapproval of homosexual sex – let alone the biological oxymoron of two men "marrying" one another – generally held firm for the remainder of the twentieth century.  As recently as 1987 – when the Bangles and Bon Jovi were topping the pop charts – 75% of Americans expressed their firm conviction that homosexual relations were always wrong.  And in 1988, only 11% of Americans expressed approval of same-sex marriage (SSM).

                Fast forward to the disjointed and dismal year of 2015.  In the space of an historical micro-second, millions of Americans abruptly abandoned and repudiated the standards of sexual morality and family structure they had held from childhood.  Just as occurred in Mao's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, a relentless, monolithic movement orchestrated by government, a left-wing political party, and a subordinate media imposed its will upon a cowed and compliant populace -- a nation of conformist sheep.

                Homosexual activities that had been illegal, immoral, and almost universally deplored only years before were suddenly not only legal and beyond reproach, but admirable and even celebrated.  Major American cities were suddenly teeming with pro-homosexual parades and festivals, with officials and politicians of all stripes falling over themselves to outdo each other in endorsing and embracing the sodomite lifestyle.
                This radical inversion of cultural and moral standards was consummated with the U.S. Supreme Court's preposterous holding that the U.S. Constitution somehow mandates the states' validation and blessing of "marriages" between two men or two women.  The politically and ideologically corrupt majority of five justices – America's own "Gang of Five" – perversely held that the liberties guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment somehow included the "right" of two men to demand that the state authenticate their unnatural homosexual union as a valid marriage -- of equal standing with the natural marriage of one man and one woman. 

                But when the Fourteenth Amendment was adopted back in 1868, homosexual sodomy was universally condemned and criminalized by all the states.  Marriage was universally limited to heterosexual unions, and the suggestion that two men could "marry" – let alone that the Fourteenth Amendment guaranteed their right to do so – would have been met with appalled and outraged derision by every single state legislator who participated in its adoption.  In short, the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage decision ascribes to the authors of the Fourteenth Amendment an intent that is conclusively contradicted by the indisputably demonstrated beliefs and understandings of those men.

                A more distorted, illogical, and fraudulent assault on rational constitutional analysis would be difficult to concoct.  The corrupt Justice Anthony Kennedy's "opinion" for the court was nothing more than a free-flowing, stream-of-consciousness expression of his own maudlin and prurient philosophical preferences, bearing no discernible relationship to the text and history of the Constitution.  In short, Kennedy's opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges has more in common with James Joyce's Ulysses than it does with the jurisprudence of Marbury v. Madison.

                Yet Kennedy and the rest of the Court's Gang of Five could feel confident and comfortable that their deranged and lawless ruling would be embraced and welcomed by predominant portions of the media, the political culture, academia, and a compliant general populace.  The Orwellian atmosphere of cowed and mindless conformity  imposed by the American Cultural Revolution assured no less. 

                One thing is certain about the mass conversion of Americans from their long-held understandings about the morality of homosexual practices and the historical institution of marriage between man and woman as ordained by nature itself:  It did not result from any thoughtful and deliberate reconsideration or analysis of those understandings.

                There is not the slightest evidence that millions of ill-educated Americans suddenly discovered the egregious historical mistake of limiting marriage to male-and-female from a studious examination of the literature, data, and studies on these issues.  After all, it never occurred to the great inquiring minds of history, from Confucius to Ptolemy to Newton to Einstein, that human civilization had fundamentally erred in its universal limitation of the core institution of marriage to man-and-woman.  It is hardly credible that the untutored masses of the superficial civilization of the present age would somehow discover an egregious civilization mistake that had somehow escaped the detection of history's intellectual giants.

                Rather, it is evident from both the suddenness and superficiality of this mass conversion that it reflects nothing more than feckless capitulation to the prevailing mores and convictions of the leftist-dominated political and media culture.   Just as the Chinese people cowered and capitulated before the onslaught of Mao's rabid Red Guards, much of the American population have abjectly abandoned their standards of sexual morality and social sanity rather than resist the relentless, Orwellian onslaught of the American Cultural Revolution orchestrated by the Obamist totalitarians and their media minions.

                So complete and craven is the popular submission to this cultural and moral madness that congressional Democrats can call for the actual eradication of the terms "husband" and "wife" from the federal statute books without eliciting more than a murmur of resistance.

                But the deranged subversion of civilizational standards of sexual morality and family structure is but one manifestation – albeit a glaring one – of the dystopian cultural revolution that has descended on America.  Splashing Rocks will next examine the ACR's accelerating onslaught against the values, culture, traditions and, indeed, the basic rights of White Americans – and the obvious question of, where is the White Anger?
