Prediction of a New Silent Majority

    Roger Simon writes for The Epoch Times about a likely backlash from today's crazed political culture.

  • Led by a media that is at once delusional and cynical-and eye-rolling combination-America is in the throes of a national madness.
  • Few are able to tell the truth-and when they do, they are attacked by the mob, not only in the street, but in the board room.
  • Just the other day, talk show host Tucker Carlson opened his mouth about the well-documented dishonest origins (the lie about Michael Brown) of Black Lives Matter and sent advertisers skittering like so many scared rabbits.
  • You have the sensation that people across the country are hiding what they really think for fear of repercussions, retribution that will destroy their lives and livelihood.
  • And they're not being stupid. It could-and has.
  • If Nathaniel Hawthorne were alive today, he could write a new masterpiece with faux racism as the scarlet letter, but no one would publish it, certainly not one of our mainstream publishers who would rather flunk their Wasserman tests.
  • Is this the way to run a democracy?
  • Of course not, but that's where we are in America 2020 when putative "autonomous zones" are being set up across the land by groups espousing the overthrow of the U.S. government, violently or otherwise, under the guise of a brainless anarchism Peter Kropotkin would never recognize.
  • We used to have restaurant pop-ups. Now we have "autonomous zone" pop-ups. ...
  • ... But I also have the sensation that something else is brewing-a more positive reaction. And a strong one.
  • A new silent majority is about to emerge, one far more sophisticated than the old Nixonian version and more sophisticated too than the BLM/Antifa fellow travelers in the Democratic Party and media.
  • They already have their harbingers, their heroes, the few swimming upstream against a tide seemingly as strong (for now anyway) as any Louisiana hurricane.
