I tire of this shit. I really, really do.
“Study: 90 percent of Americans Strongly Opposed To Each Other.” That’s the headline on a story in what on some days seems America’s most reliable news outlet, the Onion.
We laugh (or at least I did) because it strikes a chord. Americans of many different political outlooks today seem united in believing that we are experiencing the worst times in the nation’s history. Trump detractors talk about a neurotic Nazi establishing a dictatorship. Trump fans talk about a “Deep State” using secret protocols to undermine the voters’ choice.
Both sides have some cause for complaint.
Oh, they do, do they? The Deep State obviously, incontrovertibly exists; the evidence of its ongoing campaign to “undermine the voters’ choice” is voluminous and beyond reasonable debate by now, a matter of public record that even its Leftymedia vanguard openly confesses in its recent reportage. So…mind telling me exactly where we might find “cause” supporting the preposterous and offensive smearing of Trump as a “Nazi establishing a dictatorship,” O Judicious and Even-Handed One?
One of these things is NOT like the other. The alacrity with which NeverTrump cucks like Barone leap to humbly demonstrate their fair-mindedness, their willingness to give “serious” consideration to absurd-on-its-face Leftard horseshit, is how the feeble, docile sheep got themselves Trumped in the first place. They bare their throats for the liberal knife again and again and again, then are shocked—SHOCKED!—by all the blood on the floor. They pointlessly overanalyze and obsess over arcane minutia, their dignified droning and belching drowned out by the baying of the Deep State’s tireless jackals.
And then they profess themselves baffled as to how anyone could be so ill-bred a lout as to prefer a bare-knuckle brawler to their own ineffectual mincing and posturing—to see to it that our antagonists are the ones doing the bleeding, for a refreshing change. You prefer winning to losing genteely? Why, you ruffians! You scalawags! YOU BARBARIANS!
Barone’s larger point admittedly stands, though, along with the Onion’s. The divide is real, deep, and unbridgeable. It’s profound, and it is right that this should be so. The lines are stark and clear, drawn with a scalpel. The struggle between Left totalitarianism and Constitutional governance is one not to be shied from but embraced. It is the noblest of fights, tyranny against liberty, and ought to be embraced with vigor and joy, regarded not as a burden or misfortune but as a privilege and a sacred duty. Mercifully, there remains a valid hope that the struggle will continue to be rhetorical and political and will not descend to actual violence and bloodshed. It is our additional duty to ensure that such a catastrophe never envelops us, by fighting in other arenas with tireless dedication until we prevail.
The Founders knew that this struggle would be ongoing: the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Our vigilance lapsed for far too long, allowing the Left to steal a march (a Long March—ahem) on us and very nearly wreck our country for good. But with Trump’s election we made an overdue start on stemming the Dismal Tide. The astonishing rapidity with which our economy rebounded bespeaks an unexpected American resilience from which every true American can take heart; the collapse of Progressivism into incoherent folly and hapless flailing about, inevitable as it always was, is another encouraging confirmation.
But one way or another, by nonviolent means or by bloodshed, the struggle will go on. This is by no means a matter for lamentation, reluctance, or dismay. The modern Left’s ideology is antithetical to every principle espoused by the Founders and laid down in the Constitution; their intentions are monstrous, their actions intolerable. Their depraved vision is fundamentally incompatible with liberty, with individualism, with America’s founding ideals. They are implacably, unalterably opposed to those ideals, and will stick at absolutely nothing to see them overthrown.
After years of working clandestinely against it, they have only recently made their hostility to the American ideal public, in the mistaken assumption that the struggle was over and they had won the final round, vanquishing their hated foe for all time. That premature victory lap was an error that will haunt them for a long time to come, and may yet prove to be fatal. The repudiation dealt them by The Trumpening stupefied and deeply depressed them, sure enough. But nobody should be expecting them to give up just yet. They will fight on. They will never stop. They still intend to win.
And this we cannot allow. The boot must stay on their necks. This year’s midterm elections need to be another painful round for them, a defeat so unmistakeable and bitter it takes their breath away—one after which their excuse-making and blame-shifting is so transparently pathetic it can only be laughed aloud at by sane people. This is one case where kicking a man when he’s down is definitely called for.
There is liberty, or there is not. Liberty cannot compromise with tyranny; it can only succumb to it. A binary solution set confronts us: victory, or defeat. There are no other paths, and no other options.
Bring. It. On. And let the cucks fall where they may.
Update! This. This right here.
There is precious little, if not nothing, that average citizens can do to act against the Deep State actors who have foisted the staggeringly disgraceful Russiagate witch-and-scavenger hunt upon the American people. However, the Democratic Party, and concomitantly, the Leftist “mainstream” media, can and must be made to pay. The ballot box is the only way to deliver the payback.
Obviously, I’m not addressing the undeniable aspect of Russian interference. Who didn’t know that? I’m talking about delivering a sound ideological and electoral shellacking to every politician, every unhinged Leftist comedian, and every newsmedia personality that has hung a partisan hat on the ridiculous notion that Mr. Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin to circumvent Hillary Clinton’s election and secure the Oval Office.
It is in the hands of the country’s voters now, Republicans, independents, and concerned, open-minded Democrats, to send an incontrovertible message about corruption and real collusion in the upcoming midterm election.
Recipients of the grassroots reprimand should include ultimate RINOs like Robert Mueller, James Comey, and Rod Rosenstein. Nevermind that certain high-stakes players may be card-carrying members (in Comey’s case, formerly) of the GOP. If one core truth about this debacle can be told, from the very beginning it has been about acting on behalf of Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and the Deep State. Whoever has been instrumental in promulgating this attempt to stage a silent coup against a duly elected president must pay a price — if not legally, at least in terms of a severe upbraid from members of the freedom-loving, fair-minded citizenry.
What about the media — as Sean Hannity puts it, the “destroy Trump” media? There is only one way to make them pay. Make them choke down another catastrophe. Make them accountable for the fake news they’ve disseminated. Make them have to again sit in their beltway media centers and pontificate about how democracy dies in darkness, about how deplorable the American people are, and about how, if we only wait until 2020, the next change they’ve been waiting for will occur, and the presidential election they have been untruthfully attempting to scuttle will finally end.
Let the President Trump-aligned 2018 Red Wave begin.
From his lips to God’s ears. How can anyone not relish the prospect of Leftymedia spending another election night reduced to inconsolable televised weeping? Of all the sad-faced actors and actresses holding up selfies with their heart-rending cardboard-sign cris de coeur, despair all over them like a bad rash? Of network-news-show anchors left completely unable to even speak, robbed of their ability to express their soul-destroying anguish? Of a forced outburst of weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth from the Ruling Class entire inflicted on them by the Deplorable Dirt People?
THAT’S entertainment, folks.
For their own part, NeverTrumpTard Clown-Car Cucks better wake up at last lest they be left choking on Trump’s dust, unpitied sacrifices in a contemptible struggle, linked forever in the public mind with the hopeless Lefty losers whose ragged coattails they so stubbornly clutched, riding all the way down with them into flaming ruin.
Again, I mean.
