Trumpist/BLM mob is the end result of decades of American decadence.

Reader comment on item: "Republican Mob" Was Once an Oxymoron, Now It's a Reality

Submitted by Dong (Canada), Jan 15, 2021 at 22:01

Decades, generations of easy living have created an American population that will not take "No" for an answer. This population is also physiologically incapable of understanding the discipline required in games of strategy, such as politics. The need to stick with a rallying cry that endows your movement with legitimacy, the necessity of staying your hand until an opportune moment to strike comes, and so on.

The protesters that caused chaos this summer over the BLM riots, and the protesters that stormed the US Capitol, are both made from this same cloth of American degeneration. Conservatives will only win if they wake up, shape up, and prepare themselves for a patient march through the institutions that will last decades.
