A dark cloud looms over the Usa today – a storm cloud of tyranny. All the rest is noise – a diversion.
If self-congratulatory pats around the back could cause skin damage, Trump haters would have leprosy. Having been on a witch hunt to lose him at the impeachment stake since he took office, they believe they are vindicated forevermore.
But apart from their brutal mistreatment of President Mr . trump from the beginning through their coordinated and malicious hoaxes that incidentally rejected lawful election results , and apart from the question of whether they have some legitimate complaints against him, this is still not mainly about him. In a few days, he’ll be gone. This is about whether America will descend into tyranny.
Just as the left exploited COVID-19 to damage the economy and President Trump’s political fortunes , and just as it milked the virus to exercise unprecedented control over Americans, it is now exploiting the Capitol riot to shame conservatives into succumbing to its efforts to further consolidate its power and erode our liberties.
I would love nothing more than to turn down the volume, have a breather from politics and pretend that partisan strife can be overcome by virtue-signaling platitudes, but that might be a delusional, selfish cop-out. Unless we no more believe in American exceptionalism, the principles of limited government and the blessings of liberty, we're honor bound to continue the fight.
The Majority of Trump Supporters Oppose Violent Riots
Whatever caused the breach from the Capitol, whatever percentage of the malefactors were Trump supporters with no matter how much their complaints coincide with those of the 74 million Trump supporters, their misdeeds do not taint the entire lot of us or what we should stand for. They do not render moot our concerns over election integrity.
The overwhelming majority of Trump supporters oppose and condemn violent riots, including the riot at the Capitol, and they strongly sounded the alarm about them during the left’s march of mayhem and anarchy throughout America’s cities last summer. Typically, Democrats who are now decrying riots remained silent. Many of those who voted for Trump’s impeachment have literally called for political violence.
Election Fraud, COVID and the Capitol
Additionally, millions still believe that there were massive election irregularities and that COVID was cynically used to relax voting procedures, which resulted in most of this insanity to begin with. All these efforts to demonize Trump and intimidate his supporters will not make them believe otherwise, and it will not calm the turbulent waters of political unrest in the united states.
Did you read the articles of impeachment? You will probably find Trump’s speech to his supporters objectionable, but to say that he willfully encouraged violence, when his actual language required peace, and to use that like a specification for impeachment is chilling, particularly when we have evidence that the riots were planned far prior to his speech .
Just as troubling, did you see how this Democratic-controlled Congress, with the aid of 10 Republicans, snuck in the “fact” that Trump “reiterated false claims that ‘we won this election, and that we won it in a landslide'”?
Entitled to the Opinions
You may think Trump’s claims are outrageously false, but do you believe the Congress of the us has any business declaring the expression of these an opinion an impeachable offense? Trump is eligible for his opinion until his dying day, much like the millions of Americans who share it.
There isn't any question that Trump’s legal efforts to challenge the election failed – that’s a well known fact. But the leftist narrative that Trump’s allegations of election fraud “are false and not supported by the evidence” have been inserted in every liberal-media news report since Trump first started challenging the election. Quite simply, they dismissed these claims as factually false way before they’d even been formally filed. Now Democrats have outrageously memorialized their narrative in their articles of impeachment.
Trusting Election Results
Even when the election-night shenanigans didn’t change the result of the election – and I’m not sure we’ll ever know for several – way too many suspicious things occurred that night, and way too many state laws were changed in the center of the stream to relax voting procedures. Many warned this could potentially lead to misconduct and rampant distrust within the election results. If election-integrity reform measures aren’t undertaken, I don’t see how it’s possible to restore confidence within our system.
The Leftist Tyranny
Feel free to call us hypocrites in an effort to shame us into silence about the Democrats’ double standards on violence, rioting and threats to the democratic system, but the issue isn’t hypocrisy. That, too, is really a distraction. The issue is whether the left, the truth is, is threatening our liberties, about which there might be no reasonable doubt.
Whatever you do, don’t take your eyes off the big ball of leftist tyranny. This nation is now under siege by the digital oligarchy, that is censoring political speech with every bit just as much power as an authoritarian government. It's about to be under siege by a Democratic-controlled government, one of whose prominent members, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is threatening to create an investigative commission to “rein in” the media following a D.C. riots.
Falling for a Diversion
Go ahead and bark about President Trump’s intangible so-called threats to the democracy, but while you’re falling for that diversion, understand that many Democrats take presctiption the verge of proposing concrete measures to undermine our constitutional system with techniques that will ensure their permanent majority, from opening our borders to turning territories into states to legislatively neutering the Electoral College to enacting federal laws that legalize obscenely lax voting procedures and much more.
While you’re busy hating on Trump and the supporters, ask yourselves whether conservatives ever demand the silencing of their political opponents. The answer is never, or almost never.
A Well-Rehearsed Fantasy
In the meantime, leftists are purging conservative speech and conspiring to eliminate conservative digital competitors. Leftist students at Harvard University seek to ban Trump administration officials from speaking on their own campus and are now calling for revoking the degrees of Trump supporters and aides. Where would be the long-lost civil libertarians in the Democratic Party?
It is really a well-rehearsed fantasy that Trump supporters threaten democracy. It's an observable fact that the left does.
Be peaceful, but stay vigilant, because freedom is “only ever one generation away from extinction.” Indeed, we are well into that menacing generation today.
