The New York Times published an essay on Tuesday by a leading actress in the Star Wars franchise, Kelly Tran. The entire gist of the essay was a familiar refrain that we have seen countless times, yet seems to have no end as merely the faces, names, and characters change, while the grift stays the same.
The rough outline goes something like this: a personality spouts the Democrat Party line about being a victim of Scary White Men and is richly rewarded with money, fame, adulation, and career success.
The list of those who have sold their souls to get in on the victimhood gravy train is too numerous to mention, but Tran is merely its’ latest iteration, and could possibly be a sign that the Democrat Party is turning its’ eyes towards Asian Americans as a future reliable voting bloc.
Furthermore, the very fact that con artists and sellouts are richly rewarded by getting in on the grifting of the progressive socialists is the ironclad proof that they are not punished by a discriminatory system at all.
The dominant power structures reward those who promote and further the victimhood narrative, those who hype the threat of the Scary White Men, and those who parrot stale Democrat propaganda tropes.
The list could be endless, but simply a few who have been richly rewarded by the power structures for being boot-lickers and shills for the Democrat Party: Rachel Maddow, Don Lemon, Shaun King, Sarah Jeong, Angela Rye, and countless others.
To the preaching of the gospel of the dangers of Scary White Men, there is no end. It is now the established doctrine and strategy of the Democrat Party and they have hitched their wagon to its’ star. As much as the electoral success of the strategy may be stalling, it is still the predominant ideology of most, if not all, of the ultra-powerful institutions.
Entertainment, television, news, and educational power structures all currently operate upon the necessity of the furtherance of the myth of Scary White Men. It is the very fuel that drives them, the oil that lubricates its’ gears, the pathos that infects the rotting heart of our once-proud American institutions.
Those who play the game are rewarded. Kelly Tran, a woman who stars in a blockbuster film produced by one of the most powerful entertainment companies to widespread laudits everywhere, claims she is a victim because anonymous commenters left unkind words on her Instagram pages.
Sarah Jeong declares herself the victim of an oppressive white structure and is immediately rewarded with a platform at one of the most influential power structures in America.
The structure behind the myth of white supremacy is the notion that white men possess all the power in America. We then see this notion promoted by a woman who is amplified by the most powerful media institutions in the country. Her oppressors? Anonymous nobodies with no platform, no amplification, and no power.
The rhetorical structure has been executed efficiently as a method of ideological extortion. Those who do not subscribe to this brand of cultlike extremism are quickly detected, declared oppressors, and eventually removed. The cultists work together, giving them an advantage over the regular citizens they target, who have no understanding of the opponent they are up against.
The simple distillation of what we have been witnessing is a coup d’etat, a seizure of power, and an authoritarian overthrow of all power structures in America. The culprits are a small, but highly efficient band of immoral cultists who possess no ethical boundaries in their blitzkriegs.
Over the years, the message has been received by the populace writ large: play the game and be rewarded – refuse and be destroyed. The ramifications for young citizens entering the power structures are clear and enormous – entire careers can be either built or eradicated based upon their level of compliance. Some stay silent and hope to fly by. Others speak out and are targeted with the ferocity of a demonic Inquisition.
The less ethical among us, the most power-hungry, and the most sadistic, sociopathic in society conform to the crushing, soul-destroying dictates of the Prison. And it is here that we discover a disturbing detail about the nature of the environment created by these cultists: it is intentionally engineered to attract only the most evil, the biggest narcissists, the meanest bullies, the least morally scrupulous, and those who enjoy inflicting pain on defenseless people. We realize that the meritocracies of our forefathers have been wholly transformed into Party apparatuses of informers, collaborators, denouncers, and thieves. Whilst we slept, the inheritance of the founders of the American Revolution was snatched away from us by a small band of extremists.
To say that this disease has infected every structure in America would be inaccurate. In Europe, the progression of this spiritual cancer is far worse. In China, we see the inevitable result of a Party authoritarianism where loyalty is paramount, dissidents are denounced, and enemies of the Power Structure are simply eliminated.
Those institutions that will remain the most resistant to this insidious intimidation and ideological nepotism will always be the heart of the capitalist industry, where merit is most critical and where skill and talent are necessary to survive. But as we slide left on the spectrum of merit, towards organizations where clear goals are nebulous, accountability is vague, and where revenue is not directly tied to strict production outputs, the disease of fascist political ideology will put down roots and entangle the institution in a death grip.
The news organizations have no clear standard by which to be measured and long ago succumbed to the fascism of Party conformity. In order to succeed, one must spout the Party line, hype the dangers of Scary White Men, and performatively declare oneself a victim, whilst simultaneously writing for the most influential and powerful opinion leaders in the country.
The entertainment and television corporations soon followed. All major media executives must pay obeisance to the Myth. Roles are dictated according to it. Jobs are dispensed according to Party dictates. All productions become subtle propaganda operations in a never-ending cycle of eternal myth propagation. To the beginning of insanity, there is no end.
The educational institutions are completely under Party control. Dance for the Democrat masters or be punished. They too, perpetuate self-fulfilling propaganda, these ivory towers of multi-billion dollar endowments, racially engineering as they claim the power structures are under white male control.
Only the corporations and businesses remain, and even there, political cultists have begun to infiltrate. At times, it appears as if we live in a Soviet-style, Orwellian nightmare, where every corporation races to outdo the other in kowtowing to the Party grift. Con artists must justify their existence or risk the public realizing they have no clothes. To the claiming of victimhood, there is no end, even when virtually every single important cultural institution is under your control. There is always some slight to seize upon, some inequity to exploit, even as they grow rarer and rarer. If civil rights were a legitimate imbalance to exploit in 1960, the grifters of today must hype innocuous looks or comments, to the point where the nation wastes its’ time poring over “micro-aggressions”. There is no greater sign of the moral bankruptcy and pathetic nature of this dead horse when the greatest proof of oppression is facial expressions, just as a famous actress’ greatest proof of supposedly systemic oppression is mean comments on her social media.
Kelly Tran was not the first and she will not be the last. The public will never know if she truly believes what she says or even if she wrote it herself, because it is irrelevant. Only the pantomime matters, the ritualistic kneeling, the bowing of the head to the Party prayer. We come together in our congregations and all agree that the Emperor has quite beautiful clothes indeed and that the greatest danger to our lives is Scary White Men lurking behind every corner. We pretend that the greatest danger to African American citizens is a police officer, when the percentage of African Americans killed by police officers is virtually statistically non-existent. We pretend that the power structures in America discriminate against racial groups, as we see over-representation in sports and hundreds of black millionaires, as Asians sit among the most affluent groups in the nation, as black citizens reached congressional status, Attorney General, and the Presidency. We nod solemnly and agree that we live in the Handmaid’s Tale as many women helm some of the most powerful corporations, are over-represented in many industries, dominate higher education, and pump the stale, tired narratives of victimhood from the most powerful platforms in the nation.
We may live within the hellish nightmare of this new Party orthodoxy forever. There will always be those of weak moral fiber, willing to sell out to the Party in order to gain wealth, fame, status, and power. To the grifting of progressive socialists there is seemingly no end. When every scintilla of apparent group imbalance or inequity is eradicated, there will always be another hair to split, another phantom slight to magnify, another way to incite hatred. The System demands it, for it is the very fuel it seeks. It is a self-perpetuating system that has achieved sentience. The sellouts eagerly sign up to be the foot soldiers of this new hierarchy based not upon skill or merit, but upon the willingness to abdicate all morals in the pursuit of personal gain. As for the rest of us, we righteously refuse, and will do so until the end of time.
