These are dangerous times. The Left has made them so and insists on increasing the danger. Leftists hold virtually every commanding height in our society—financial, intellectual, educational, cultural, administrative—and yet they affect the posture of an oppressed and besieged “resistance.”
Nonsense. The real resistance is led by President Trump. It is resistance to the Left’s all-consuming drive for absolute power, its hostility to all American and Western norms—constitutional, moral, prudential—and its boundless destructive enmity. If I have been persuaded by any criticism of “The Flight 93 Election,” it is that I was ungenerous to Trump. The president stands clearly and firmly against these virulent attacks on America and firmly for the protection of life and liberty, and the promotion of the good life for the American people. Those are the core responsibilities of any American president. May President Trump continue to fulfill them until the end of his constitutionally won second term.
What the Kavanaugh affair has made clearer to me than ever is that the Left will not stop until all opposition is totally destroyed. The harm they do to people, institutions, mores, and traditions is, in their view, not regrettable though unavoidable collateral damage; it is rather an essential element of the project. It’s a bit rich to be accused by nihilists of lacking a positive vision. But such is life in 2018. To stand up for truth, morality, the good, the West, America, constitutionalism, and decency is to summon the furies.
America cannot long go on like this. Something’s gotta give, and something will. What that “something” will be depends in no small part on the actions of men and women of good character, good judgment, and goodwill.
It should be—it MUST be—the Left, and its malevolent, soul-crushing lust to achieve absolute power over us all, that will prove to be that “something.” This victory won’t be cheap, easy, or quick, but the sole alternative—defeat, compromise having been long removed from the menu—doesn’t bear thinking about. The Left is no longer bothering to conceal what they have planned for us: subjugation, enslavement, punishment, even death. Hey, you don’t have to just take my word for it:
Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-N.Y.) threatened a young, black high schooler on Twitter because he didn’t know her name. “Hi @TheCJPearson, I’m not the woman sitting next to her,” Velazquez tweeted to Republican activist C.J. Pearson. “@AOC and I—and millions like us—are the future of this country. And you’re right to be afraid of us. But you should learn my name.”
Bold mine. Note ye well that this isn’t just some random Proggie rageling impotently shaking her fist on Twitter; this is a sitting New York Congresscreature hurling a direct threat at a high-school kid. She isn’t just threatening the kid, either; her threat is aimed at all of us. And if you think for a moment that such an obvious tyrant would hesitate to abuse her position to inflict whatever retribution she deems appropriate upon the Real Americans she so loathes, for any reason at all, you need to think again.
Myself, I see no reason not to take the vile fascist at her word. The real problem is, she and all her nasty, dangerous ilk have things exactly backwards. She might find expressing her egotistical contempt for her lowly constituents satisfying and all, but that ain’t the way the country was originally intended to work. As John Basil Barnhill’s great quote says: “Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty.” Arrogant, out of control tapeworms like Velazquez needs to be taught to fear US, as is right and proper, with a quickness. We’ve let them slide for way too long now, which is why we are where we are.
In the meantime: bang, zoom, right onto my Amazon Wish List Anton’s book goes. You just know it’s gonna be a good ‘un, if all too brief at only just over a hundred pages. If you haven’t yet read his original Flight 93 post, do yourself a favor and hit the link to it up top. It’s well worth your time, trust me.
