It’s only fitting that Wednesday, the day of the Alexandria shooting rampage by a Radical Left extremist, was the 89th birthday of mass murderer Che Guevera. Che has long been a hero to the Radical Left, especially those lost souls who occupy — literally — our college campuses. To them, the American flag represents evil, while a Che T-shirt is cool.
As I have long pointed out, the Radical Left, going all the way back to Karl Marx, has advocated the use of force to achieve what it can’t get through the ballot box. Its members unapologetically refer to this as “by any means necessary.”
The Radical Left has steadily increased its violent tactics over the years, beginning with the George Bush era. Its members saw Bush as a threat to derail their march toward totalitarianism and a shutdown of free speech. Sadly, Bush, a RINO to the core, alleviated their concerns by repeatedly capitulating to their fascist demands.
That led to the country’s first openly Radical Left president, Barack Obama, who not only gave his tribe free reign to commit acts of violence, but repeatedly encouraged such violence (as in, “We’re gonna punish our enemies.”).
The New Black Panthers’ voter intimidation outside a voting station in Philadelphia, a clear violation of law for which no one was ever prosecuted, was an early example of this. Ditto with Obama’s inviting Black Lives Matter leaders to the White House, along with the mothers of criminals such as Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.
Then, just when most normal Americans had come to believe that no politician would ever have the courage or principle to stand up to the purveyors of violence and intimidation, along came Donald Trump. This completely changed the political landscape, because Trump threatened to put an end the entrenched system of criminality in D.C.
This, in turn, caused the Radical Left to become hysterical and shed any subtlety about its belief in the use of violence to achieve its political ends. Whether it’s Kathy Griffin holding the severed, bloody head of Donald Trump or the violent assassination of Donald Trump in the Central Park version of Julius Caesar, it’s clear that the Radical Left now believes it’s time to pull out all stops and ratchet up its violence in an all-out effort to stop Donald Trump and the tens of millions of Americans who voted him into office.
When Bernie Sanders came out quickly on Wednesday to denounce the Alexandria shooter, it was an all-too-obvious case of CYA, because Sanders has been preaching violence for decades. When you whip crowds into a frenzy by calling for “free” healthcare, “free” college education for all, and a guaranteed minimum wage for everyone, you are implicitly calling for violence.
Why? Because the fulfillment of such communist goals necessitates the use of force. Let’s get real here: No one is going to voluntarily support his neighbor’s lifestyle, pay for his neighbor’s children to go to college, or fund his neighbor’s healthcare. The Radical Left knows this, which is why, in frustration, it employs fascist tactics to force people to accept its ideas.
Radical Leftists are like spoiled children throwing a perpetual tantrum, because they cannot fathom not getting their way. Thanks to the shameful, unprincipled ranks of Republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and, above all, leaders Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, the Radical Left has always been able to get Republicans to go along with its nefarious schemes. Few people realize that the “go along to get along” band of Republicans is actually the Radical Left’s secret weapon.
For decades, the Dems have been able to count on their “colleagues across the aisle” to help them implement their fascist agenda — an agenda that includes a multitude of coercive and unconstitutional programs and actions. Their focal point of their platform, of course, is open borders, voter fraud, and, above all, redistribution-of-wealth programs, all aimed at capturing votes to assure their hold on power.
This is why the voter rebellion in 2016 caught them by complete surprise. Donald Trump as president is still unthinkable to them. He must be removed from office by any means necessary, because he will not capitulate to their intimidation.
In reality, of course, Trump’s presidency is not so much about Donald Trump, the individual, as it is about everyday folks who are fed up with the criminal activity of the ruling class in Washington. This is unacceptable to the Radical Left, thus it’s not surprising that its members demonize freedom fighters at every turn. The message is simple: Either agree with us or we will label you “evil.”
This is one of the fundamental tactics used by Saul Alinsky, and when someone like Jeff Sessions gets out of line (by supporting the Radical Left’s symbol of evil, Donald Trump), they quickly lock arms, isolate him, and aim nasty epithets in his direction, just as they did in the Senate Intelligence hearings.
The entire affair was a bad joke. The Dirty Dems had no interest in getting to the truth. On the contrary, their sole objective was to impugn Sessions’ character. Fortunately, he did what most of us expected he would do — make them look like the hateful mob they are.
And in doing so, Sessions also made Robert Mueller’s assigned task — finding collusion between the Trump administration and the Russians (which is now a virtual impossibility) and/or finding obstruction of justice on the part of Donald Trump (an absurdity, given the facts, but still a possibility) — much tougher.
While it may be true that Mueller was once listed as a registered Republican (no one can confirm that he still is), Newt Gingrich was, as usual, on target when he said, “Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair.” He also noted that at least several of the lawyers whom Mueller selected for his team have contributed to Democrats in the past. Translation: The fix is in.
As to the Alexandria shootings, the Dirty Dems are already calling for more gun controls and blaming the shooter’s derangement on Donald Trump’s rhetoric. But what if the shooter had been a Republican and his victims had been Democrats? No problem. The solution would still be stricter gun-control laws and the impeachment of Donald Trump. The Dirty Dems’ motto is: Heads, I win; tails, you lose.
Finally, we have the kumbaya snapshot in time that has come out of all this. Over and over again, we heard politicians and “news” commentators mouth platitudes like, “This is our time to all come together as one.” But much like Uncle Bernie’s remarks, their words didn’t ring true.
To the Radical Left, “We have to all come together” is a euphemism for “We all have to forget what we believe in and join with the Democrats in pursuing their agenda. (And, of course, help them remove Donald Trump from office.) “Coming together” sounds warm and fuzzy at a time like this, but it’s wishful thinking so long as Radical Leftists are free to stir their cauldron of hate.
It was sad to hear a pastor giving a prayer before Congress in which he called for “kindness, goodwill, and compassion.” Again, nice words, but the truth is that there is zero kindness, zero goodwill, and zero compassion on the Radical Left. On the contrary, its members traffic in hatred and violence.
To those of you who are serious about having the D.C. swamp drained, let me assure you that nothing will change until and unless Republicans go on the attack against the very people who preach violence and are now in charge of all the phony investigations. Unfortunately, the McCain-Ryan-McConnell axis will never do that, so it will be up to Trump and his close allies, or those who follow in their footsteps, to do the job.
I also don’t believe that draining the swamp is possible unless Trump or someone else on the right is willing to crack down — and I mean really crack down — on political violence. This will shock and disappoint many of my readers, but given that a violent, left-wing dictatorship is now on the horizon, I no longer favor unfettered “free speech.”
This is now a state of emergency, and I believe that those who preach hatred and violence should be prosecuted and, if found guilty, imprisoned. I’m not just talking about crazies like Pocahontas, Maxine Waters, and Granny Pelosi, but media people as well. And, of course, those who put on productions like “Julius Caesar,” the sole purpose of which is to inspire people to commit acts of violence. This is akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater, which is not protected free speech.
I will end as I do in so many of my articles by emphasizing again that people really do get the government they deserve. Republicans need to clean house in order to show they are serious about draining the swamp. So long as voters keep reelecting unprincipled, cowardly hacks like Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell, nothing will change.
These lapdogs for the Radical Left make it impossible for Republicans to ever have enough votes in Congress to effect meaningful change. If voters don’t have enough sense to throw out of office the rotten eggs in the Republican Party, they deserve to live in a country where violence rules the day.
As Lou Dobbs, the number-one voice on television when it comes to cutting to the chase, would say, “What the hell is the matter with the Republican leadership?” Answer: Lou, it’s really quite simple. They are hopelessly unprincipled and corrupt — and perhaps even a bit stupid and masochistic.
