“No one can beat us. We can only beat ourselves.”
That’s a common metaphor you’ll hear in sports. The meaning is quite simple: our team is more talented and tactically superior to the rest. The only way we’re going to lose to those lesser teams is by making mistakes.
In today’s world, that perfectly encapsulates the United States. And our enemies know it.

Last week, the United States carried out a prisoner exchange with Russia. In exchange for sending Viktor Bout, nicknamed “The Merchant of Death,” back to his homeland, we received WNBA player Brittney Griner, who was arrested and convicted on drug possession charges and sentenced to nine years. from prison.
The Russian media, run by the Russian government, mocked the trade. They said we accepted Griner instead of Paul Whelan, a US Marine who has been in Russian custody for four years, because she is a gay black woman and he is a straight white man.
The White House says Russia never offered Whelan in exchange for Bout, but that part is irrelevant. The most important takeaway is this: The Russians know that poking around in Woke Culture is the best way to mock America.
They know that their citizens will find it ridiculous that a nation would place more importance on a professional athlete than on a Marine. For a nation to believe that someone’s skin color and sexual orientation makes them more valuable than someone who fought for the country’s defense.
You might think that releasing Griner was a win for Woke Culture. After all, the United States was willing to release a man convicted of conspiring to kill US citizens in order to return a gay black woman to her home.
Despite that, many in the media still say it wasn’t fast enough. There were headlines like this one from msnbc:
“Brittney Griner is finally released, but her danger is that of black women in America.”
Do you know who is happily reading that headline? Vladimir Putin. The Russians are delighted to see us continue to fight for the breed.
Brittney Griner isn’t even the only recent sports-related example
US men’s national team captain Tyler Adams was asked by an Iranian journalist at the World Cup how he can represent a country “with so much discrimination against black people in the United States.”
The Iranian government runs the Iranian media. Are you seeing a pattern?
The government almost certainly told the “journalist” to ask that question. The goal was to get Adams to say something negative about his country, or at least prick a wound that’s about to fester.
You better believe our enemies don’t want that wound to heal. They’re going to keep digging until the disease spreads throughout the American body.
And yes, Woke Culture is a disease. Despite all the claims of its constituents, the awakening is not about unity. It’s about dividing people into as many groups as possible. It is about focusing solely on people’s external appearances and identities. It’s everything Americans used to oppose.
When I was growing up in the 1990s, the most important identity anyone had was “American.”
Listen to any Hollywood speech today. How many of them begin with “As a woman…” or “As a person of color…” or “As a gay person…”? The focus immediately shifts to the qualities that make us different, rather than the distinguishing characteristic that all Americans all have in common.
It would sound ridiculous if someone woke up tomorrow and said “As an American…” In fact, that person would probably be called a xenophobic. This is how far we have come from a united American identity.
Our enemies know our weakness and happily exploit it.
Last year, as China faced international criticism over human rights abuses in Xinjiang, a Chinese official spokesman stood at the Chinese embassy in Washington, DC, and held up a picture of black slaves picking cotton in the United States more than 150 years ago. .
“Some are bent on linking [job opportunity] with forced labor and oppression because they have been doing it themselves for hundreds of years in history,” he said.
An official Chinese spokeswoman, working on behalf of the Chinese government, deflected concerns about forced labor currently taking place in her home country by raising the issue of American slavery, which was legally ended in 1866.
Why? Because China understands that dividing the races in the United States is one of the keys to defeating us. Race relations often create more division than any other issue in American culture.

Continuing to beat the drum that America is a horrible, racist, homophobic country, despite all the evidence to the contrary, is essential to ending the reign of the American Empire. And our enemies dance in unison to that rhythm.
They can’t beat us. But we can beat ourselves.
And right now, we are.
