Bring in the Clowns, There Needs to be Clowns!

By Rich Kozlovich

The title to this piece is based on the song, Send in the Clowns.  Did you ever ask what that means?  '“Send in the Clowns,” is a metaphor for the moment in a play when things are falling apart and, to keep the audience diverted from the chaos, somebody tells a few jokes."   In the play that made this song popular the story was about the unhappy and painful chaos that can take place in peoples lives, and that fits with the story I'm trying to tell.  The difference is in the play, there were no clowns.  The story I'm telling is full of clowns.

On September 5, 1651 Oliver Cromwell's forces defeated the forces of Charles II.  Later as they were marching into London the crowds cheered vigorously, and one of his followers was enthralled with the cheering.  Cromwell put a reality damper on that saying: 

“Do not trust to the cheering, for those very persons would shout as much if you and I were going to be hanged.”

Around 25,000 cheering Bronx citizens attended a Trump rally, and it shocked Democrats, after all, this is New York, this can't be happening!  The governor of New York called them "a bunch of clowns", and the media insisted it doesn't mean anything. 

As my regular readers know I'm a real fan of American Thinker, which I consider one of the very best news sites in the nation.  On Saturday Monica Showalter, one of my favorite writers, posted this piece, What the Bronx voters who've flipped to Trump are saying, quoting one of the attendees:

Jerry Evans, a registered Democrat in New York City, had never attended a political rally before Thursday.  But speaking with Newsweek at Donald Trump's campaign event in the South Bronx, Evans said that he turned out to show support for the former president because he feels "very strongly about how the border's going."...... "You know, I said, why is Biden giving them the red carpet treatment?"...... "He's giving them everything—giving them housing, giving them shelter, giving them money, cash—and people who live here can't get that."

She went on to ask:

How many thousands of them in that 25,000 crowd are thinking the same thing?

No matter how many are thinking along those lines, here's what we need to ask.  Is this enlightenment permanent?   Answer: Nah, it isn't!  This is just a “my ox is bring gored” reaction. If their ox wasn’t being gored they’d be just fine with Biden and all the insanity and treason being promoted by the left.

It will be the same with secular Jews. If they vote for Trump over Biden’s abandonment of Israel and Trump wins, once Trump has dealt with that crisis, and their ox is no longer being gored, they’ll abandon Trump and the Republicans in a nanosecond.  They will revert to type, because culture is king, and leftism is part and parcel of the culture of secular Jews.

I'm reading about all this outrage over these antisemitic protests on America's college campuses, and the downward spiraling standards that's created a lack of adequate education, all very expensive mind you, from parents and donors.  And of course were expected to believe these were just unorganized spontaneous grass roots eruptions at 47 the same time.  And we're expected to think those declining standards to allow incompetent DEI students to graduate was all brand new.    

Well, I'm sorry, I just have to role my eyes and chuckle. All of a sudden they're outraged?  This insanity has been going on for decades and its wasn't obvious to them for all these decades?

These are really smart, successful, and intelligent people, and yet.... they're shocked...shocked I tell you....... just like Captain Renault, to find that corruption has been going on there. They're shocked academia has been corrupted with collapsing standards, to meet idiotic DEI demands.

They're shocked that academia is a cultural, intellectual, and morally corrupt mephitic ooze of inbreeding, being led by grossly overpaid, blatantly incompetent DEI racists, and leftist/Marxist/anti-American ideologues, many of whom are now being exposed as plagiarists, who have been turning out graduates who can't read, write, or have a working knowledge of history, geography, or how and why America is unique in all of world history, or are even competent in their fields of study.  And that it's been going on for decades.

UCLA is turning out medical students that are a disaster, all due to the admittance of low-performing students based on affirmative action preferences.  DEI admittees, which couldn't cut it, so that required lowering the standards across the board in order to graduate unaccomplished students.   Unqualified doctors who will soon be killing people because they're incompetent, and most likely weren't very smart or very motivated in the first place. 
Let's try and get this right once, just once, please.  Diversity without accomplishment is philosophy without form and incompetence without consequence.  And we're expected to believe they just now noticed all that? Now, I'm shocked, shocked I tell you!

Billionaires like Stephan Schwarzman all over the nation are claiming they're going to support Trump.  Wow!  That's great, right?  Let's try and get this right once, just once, please.  Billionaires are at best leaky vessels as allies, and would easily and quickly abandon Trump in the blink of an eye. Just like Schwarzman, they are not conservatives, and the only moral foundation they have is opportunistic.  “I’m in it for me, get used to it.... peasant”!  They would sell the nation and everyone in it for 12 pieces of silver.

One of the foundational truths I’ve discovered in my 78 years there is no Book of Fair, and what's fair is always predicated on “who’s ox is being gored”.  Right now Biden is goring the oxen of his entire base, and they don't think it's fair. But understand this, if Kennedy was the Democrat pick, they would vote for Kennedy in a heart beat, and just because he got a couple of things right, that doesn’t change the fact he’s just as radical as Biden. 

What should shock every conservative who supports traditional values is all this outrage, and all this discontent, will soon pass and they'll be right back to being part and parcel of the problem once again.  Leftism is a cultural mental disorder, predicated on greed, envy, lust, hate, violence, and self interest, from which most leftists cannot be cured, and culture is king!  

So, don't let the cheering fool you.  People without a solid moral foundation have meandering values that allow them to rationalize their reversion to acts of self interest and corruption.   Cromwell defeated a corrupt King in 1651, and then had to dissolve Parliament in 1653 for becoming corrupt for their own ends.  Here's one of my favorite quotes from Oliver Cromwell, that is totally applicable to our modern day state of corruption. 

“It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!  

Do I hear a Second for that motion!
