History does not repeat itself, but it rhymes

| No Comments

Attributed to Mark Twain but not an actual quote. I like his actual aphorism better:

History never repeats itself, but the Kaleidoscopic combinations of the pictured present
often seem to be constructed out of the broken fragments of antique legends.

From The Gilded Age: A Tale of To-Day (Page 430)

Case in point - Mao's communist government.  This image is a mashup of the original and the current.

Provincial Party Secretary Wang Yilun, being criticized by Red Guards from the University of Industry and
forced to bear a placard with the accusation “counterrevolutionary revisionist element,”
Harbin, China, August 23, 1966

If the current crop of commies get their wishes, that will be Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer wearing the sign and being shouted at.  Right alongside of them will be all of the the Gender Studies professors as well as Zuck and that twitter guy.  The leadership of Antifa will be taken out and shot (too dangerous now that their usefulness has passed) and BLM?  Screw them - they are gone into an unmarked grave. Their 15 minutes are well passed. All the LGBQ activists?  Bullets are expensive - live burial in an unmarked pit for them.

People today are playing.  Unfortunately, they are playing with fire and they do not realize that the fire burns those it loves.  It burns them the worst. Beyond recovery, beyond redemption.
