Weekend Must-Read: This article at the Bookworm Room blog makes some very thought-provoking points about the similarities of the elections of 1920 and 2020.

One hundred years ago, voters were exhausted and traumatized by years of a foreign war (World War I), reeling from a deadly pandemic (Spanish flu) and rattled by a series of bomb attacks by socialists and anarchists all across America. Sound familiar? They elected Republican Warren G. Harding with over 60% of the Electoral College vote because he promised “a return to normalcy.”

The article suggests that Trump should run on the promise to “Make America Normal Again” (MANA?) That is, to bring back law and order, end riots, get the economy up and running again, make our schools teach kids instead of indoctrinating them, and stop pitting Americans against each other into warring identity group camps. He had made great headway on a lot of those things, including re-establishing border security, American leadership and national sovereignty, even though the Democrats fought all his efforts tooth and nail. They think that to regain power, it’s in their interests to attack and undermine everything normal, from law and order to free enterprise and capitalism to patriotism and American pride to basic biology, the scientific method and objective truth, so that people don’t know their own history and can’t even tell what their gender is.

If you think that’s an exaggeration, it’s not. It’s actually a school of leftist “thought” that’s been around for a long time, and encompasses such arcane concepts as “critical theory,” “postmodernism” and “intersectionality.” Over the past few decades, this crackpot of poison stew has been carefully spoon-fed to young people to erode the nation’s foundations, which is what we’re experiencing right now. There’s more explanation and history of this in the linked article. It’s all coming to a head in 2020, and ironically considering the times, the mask is off. I think most Americans didn’t notice it sneaking up on us, but now that it’s yelling in our faces, we don’t like what we see. We want “normal” back.

The only problem is that Joe Biden is already running on a promise to return America to normalcy. Considering that the Obama/Biden Administration tried to cover up all its failures, like its anemic economy and sluggish job growth, by assuring us that this was “the new normal,” I question whether his side even knows what “normal” means. Their version of “normal” is like the brain Igor picked out in “Young Frankenstein”: “Abby Normal.”

But to Biden and those around him, their idea of “normal” is them running everything. Even if means destroying American history, race relations, the economy, and the basic facts of life, economics and science, things will be “normal” again according to them because we’ll have a President who doesn’t send out mean tweets.

    i dont think joe biden has sense to be normal or understand it right now. it is a total disgrace this man can even run for pres. clearly his mind is gone. the vp pick today shows that also. she is not a person needed to bring this country together. she is to much about herself. her parents dont even agree with her. not a good sign. if we want normal in this country we better re elect Donald Trump as pres. he has been a good one.

    Remember the old saying: Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean you are not being followed. Just because someone says every election season, this is the most important election ever, doesn't mean it isn't true.

    Obama may have said lofty things but he was raised in a religion that it is okay to lie. Obama followed Saul Alinsky's plan "Rules for Radicals" where it is a planned take over of government and more. Certainly not freedom of choice! Look it up. Even healthcare is suppose to fail after everyone is on the same plan. Remember Obama said you could keep your same doctor and
    how did that work for you?

    For many years I have tried, carefully, to inform people that the communist theory has been at work for along time, and coupled with the idea of world government, this could come to fruition more quickly than most folks realize.
    There will always be those that expect something for nothing and they always end up with nothing and that is exactly the direction we, as a country are heading with our thoughtless allowance of letting the minority rule over the majority...the majority includes all leveled headed people, regardless of race, creed, or color. The minority are made up of those that think they are going to create a world of cannot happen!
