Interesting Times

As I previously mentioned, passion is the wild card in this election cycle.

Those passions, already running high, are about to go higher still.

The Western Spring

Richard Fernandez, PJ Media

News that CAIR has demanded an apology from Donald Trump for evicting a Muslim protester at his rally and reports that left-wing protesters and police have turned out in force to bottle up “far-right” demonstrators in Germany bookend a single story.  It’s on, the long awaited fight against PC orthodoxy is finally on.  Trump is unlikely to apologize, CAIR even more unlikely to back down.  With 3 million Middle Eastern and African refugees due to arrive in Europe this year the clashes between German protesters are only likely to intensify.

The commotion you hear is not going to stop, it will only get worse. The Western Spring is finally here, and before it’s done it threatens to change everything.

The tension between the forces of political correctness and the pent-up forces of repressed cultural traditions is now bursting like a spring wound up beyond containment.

The Jacksonians have about had their fill.

Trump currently has their attention, but they’ve a native son in the race who’s a much better choice all around.

We live in interesting times.

Hat Tip: Glenn Instapundit Reynolds, who closes with:

Looking for the exits? Hardly. I’m not trapped in here with you, enemies of western civilization. You’re trapped in here with me. And a lot of people like me, whose patience has come close to an end.

I do not (yet) cry havoc, though the temptation does grow strong.
