Scott's insane plan to "save" America...

Postby Peter Kropotkin » Fri Apr 01, 2022 12:21 am

So, Gov. Scott of Florida, has created an 11 point plan
to ''save'' America...

Scott claims that the "greatest danger this country has ever seen"
ever seen, is the left wokeness... yep, apparently WW2 was no big deal...
nor was the cold war...

This is how his plan is broken out into...

1. Education. The very first topic, the very first line in fact is,
"Our kids will say the Pledge of allegiance, salute the flag, learn
that America is a great country and choose the school that best fit them...

Ok, we have magically thinking here.. that, by magic, if we force our
kids to say the ''pledge of allegiance'' the world will miraculously change...

2. that Government will never again ask American's citizens to disclose
their race, ethnicity, or skin color on any government form again..
(We are going to eliminate racial politics in America... or the GOP
can just codify it in its laws, as CRT says)...

"we are all made in the image of god to judge a person one the color of their epidermis is immoral"

I simply ask, which god created our image? and the entire republican political platform
is based upon making judgement of one's skin color.. White is right.. is the republican
platform...

3. safety and crime... "the soft-on-crime days of coddling criminal behavior will end"
..we will have zero tolerance for "mostly peaceful protests" that attack police officers
loot business and burn down our cities... but hay, if we are trying to overthrow the government,
like on Jan 6, 2021, that is all good because they were white people assaulting police officers, not
black people...

4. we will secure our borders... because we hate brown people...

5. We will grow our economy, starve Washington economy and stop socialism...
umm, does that mean ending Social security and Medicare?
asking for a friend...

6. government reform and debt
we will eliminate ALL federal programs that can be done locally,
yep, eliminate Social Security and Medicare...
but if this is actually taken seriously, then we must also
can no longer have an Army, navy, Air force either..
because that can be done locally...

7. Fair fraud-free elections: no more voting rights.. in other words, we must
stop anyone who oppose us, to no longer be able to vote.. that will make our
elections "free"

8. Family... ''we will protect, defend and promote the American family at all cost...
the nuclear family is crucial to civilization, and it is gods' design for humanity''..
again, which god? "it, (the family) must be protected and celebrated. to say
otherwise is to deny science" ..

please feel free to show me that science...

9. gender, life and science:
"Men are men, women are women and unborn babies are babies.. we believe in
science"...
once again, show me the science...
... facts are facts, the earth is round, the sun is hot, there are two genders, and abortion
stops a beating heart.. To say otherwise is to deny science"
once again, show me the science.. and to say, the earth is round, the sun is hot,
doesn't actually tell me anything...they are "facts" that mean nothing...

10. Americans will be free to welcome god into all aspects of our lives...
you are now... but hay, let us play this game... "we will stop all government
efforts to deny us our religious freedom" and no one is stopping you now,
and freedom of speech"....... "the democratic party and their big tech allies,
are not merely secular" surely this is a crime, to be just secular, "they have
virtually created a new religion of wokeness that is increasingly hostile to people
of faith, particular Christians and Jews" at least the right wing paranoia is
is consistent... they are determined to drive all mention of god out of the public
view" once again, whose god? "We will not be silenced, canceled or told what words
to use by the politically correct crowd..
but the right wing will happily force all children to say the pledge of allegiance
and salute the flag... I don't see the difference...

11. American first... we are not globalist...
" America will be dependent on no other country..
will not conduct any trade that takes away job or displaces American workers"

the vast majority of jobs sent overseas hasn't been from trade agreement,
the jobs were lost overseas by greedy CEO'S trying to make a bigger bonus..
now comes the interesting line...
"Countries who oppose us at the UN will get zero financial help from us"...
do as we say, exactly or you don't get any money from us... no threats there...
...." we will only help countries that are willing to defend themselves like Israel"...
and do exactly what we say or no money for you...

this is not any way we can actually do business as we are heavily dependent on
a number of other countries to maintain our business... China for example,
take away China trade and wall-mart for example will left with nothing to sell...
but in fact, we are globalist.. every country is and the one country that isn't,
North Korea, is poverty stricken.... we need each other in ways we can't even
understand...we need other countries as much as they need us.. fact of life.. kids...

I have been bothered by a problem that Scott's plan
help bring up...

in his "plan" Scott says, quite clearly, that "leftist wokeism''
is the greatest danger that America has ever faced...
I read that DeSantis, the current Fla Gov, said the same thing recently..

But that makes no sense to me...How is becoming aware of
the role of Racism and prejudice play in our lives, turn into
the greatest danger America has ever faced? What is really being
defended here?

What Scott and DeSantis are really defending, is the "god given" right to
being racists, of being prejudice against people...
they are saying that their right to being bigots and prejudice outweighs
all other considerations... to remove bigotry and prejudice is a greater
problem to "America/Right wingers, then Nazism, or the cold war or
global warming or income inequality.... they believe that their right
to embrace prejudice and bigotry far exceeds any other consideration
in America...bar none.... so, when someone attacks ''Wokeism'' in this
fashion, they are actually defending the right to engage in bigotry
and prejudice and they consider their right to their bigotry and
prejudice to be of more importance than the Second War, the cold war,
income inequality.. (their words, not mine) for the conservative to defend
their prejudice and bigotry is more important than any other aspect of
America.....

I say no, that allowing the right to being bigots and prejudice isn't the greatest
problem we face in America today.... we have, as I like to say, bigger fish to fry,
then allowing the conservative the leeway to embrace what they demand to
embrace, which is bigotry and hatred and prejudice....

..because it’s being used to fuel hate and civil/global unrest.. a game of which all the unwilling pawns involved are becoming tired of being unwillingly involved in. Being pitted against each other like animals, you know.. a game I don’t like playing, but often involuntarily get entangled in, due to others’ propaganda-fuelled whims.

Wars are won by bribery and corruption, by those attempting to conquer other Peoples and Lands.. Rome, India, etc. etc. etc..

The invention of money, was probably the most evil concept ever created.. slaves to a wage/wage slaves, when humans were free prior to its conception.
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite.. ~MagsJ

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

Examine what is said, not him who speaks ~Arab proverb
