The Elites Try to Control Reality

Up is down, left is right, and so on as leftists redefine language and reality itself.

If you’re an American who prefers independent thought, and if your thoughts, speech, and behavior stray from the edicts of the governing elite, prepare to be publicly shamed, marginalized, canceled, and, in some cases, unemployed, silenced, and essentially ground to powder. Let’s look at a few examples of these elite asserting their power.

In a Tennessee middle school, a black female principal sent a school newsletter to parents announcing the theme of Black History Month. Christy Caldwell Drake is the daughter of Dr. Virgil Caldwell, the late pastor and prolific author serving at a prominent African American Church in the Brainerd Community of Chattanooga. She hoped to increase the participation in the month-long commemoration but instead lit the fire of controversy — even in a county public school system where 35% of the students are black, 27% are white, and 36% are Hispanic. Ms. Caldwell Drake, inspired by a mural in the school’s entrance that read, “Where Every Child Matters,” thought to lead her incredibly diverse middle school to greater unity by announcing February’s theme to be “All Lives Matter.” For that she has been written up in the regional printed paper, featured on area TV news outlets, discussed on talk radio, and forced to apologize and return to the “Black Lives Matter” declaration.

For another example, look at Wall Street’s anger from the well-heeled investment funds after the Reddit group, WallStreetBets, reversed the fortune of the GameStop stock, causing a halt in trading to stem the losses of the Big Firms. NBC News distills it down to be a financial power struggle between a major hedge fund and a group of amateur stock traders who air grievances on the Internet. This group seriously messed with several companies — GameStop, Bed Bath & Beyond, and AMC Theaters — but the establishment media doesn’t seem as interested in the underlying question: Who gets to influence the financial markets in America? Is it so surprising to see the average amateur grow tired of the mistreatment?

Finally, making a statement of fact has ended as expected for a Christian news website on Twitter. Daily Citizen, operating under the umbrella of Focus on the Family — whose mission statement is to have “redeemed families, communities, and societies worldwide through Christ” — had its social media account suspended for acknowledging that the nominee of President Joe Biden to serve as the assistant secretary of health at the Department of Health & Human Services is a biological male. The Daily Citizen (@FocusCitizen) tweeted on January 19: “On Tuesday, President-elect Joe Biden announced that he had chosen Dr. Rachel Levine to serve as Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of HHS. Dr. Levine is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.” Deemed “hateful” rhetoric, this comment caused the offending Christian site to be canceled and silenced for posting a photo of a biological male (born Richard Levine) dressed in women’s attire, using what appears to be facial cosmetics. According to, Levine attended a boys’ prep school, graduated medical school as a male, and identified as such until his “transition” in 2011, followed by the divorce of his wife and mother of their two children in 2013.

Dr. Thomas Sowell, brilliant conservative author and the Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, in his book The Vision of the Anointed spoke of “the mindset of many of the people in academia, among the media elite, and in politics.” This elitist mindset is prevalent “particularly among those who think that various solutions should be imposed from the top down on the way people live their lives.” Why? Well, he explains, “They think they’re just so much smarter than other people.” Dr. Sowell notes that the anointed elite view those who disagree with them as civilly, even morally, wrong, assuming the moral high ground each time.

In 2021, scientific fact, social standards, and moral decisions are all in the hands of the “anointed,” holding power for the purpose of eliminating competition, silencing the little guy and gal, and reconstructing the world of facts as we know and need it. Beware!
