Surprising and not so surprising.
A big surprise was to see the Attorney General, a black woman, Loretta Lynch, who seems well qualified to serve that office. She announced following the Jihadi slaughter of 49 people in Orlando that ‘we need more love to combat the hate’.
I’m not questioning her logic. I just wonder where she got that meme. That was a key thought of the New Age cohort of hippies forty years ago.
The hippie era had three main components: dope smoking hippies, New Agers and politicos. Roughly the entire group was 25 million young people at its peak. One million were closest to the New Agers who believed in crystals, pyramids, affirmations and pure optimism. About half-a-million were politicos and were angry at the Democrat Party for not being Lefty enough. The rest were dope smoking hippies.
In Arizona there are two towns not far apart. On the hillside is Jerome filled with dope smoking hippies, mandala shops and lots of ghost catchers. Thirty miles away is Sedona, filled with crystal shops, jade jewelry and wind chimes.
Somehow Loretta Lynch picked up that New Age religious saying.
That was also the theme of the entire San Francisco Pride parade. That is not a surprise. The gay community will do anything, absolutely anything to deny that the Orlando massacre was an Islamic Jihad terror attack. That Islam is very anti-gay must remain a secret.
Since the modern gay movement had much of its origins in the sexual freedom that was a core part of the hippie movement. It is no surprise that gays picked up the New Age ‘love is the answer to everything’ meme.
