Dave Renegade runs it down for us.
- We have to agree that America is no longer great and determine how we lost our “greatness”.
- We have to agree that the premise of any citizen who wants their country to be great does not threaten the Republic.
I know who destroyed the Republic: Politicians and the intelligence community (mainly the CIA and their FBI lackeys). While the Democrat Party bears more responsibility for the overthrow of the Republic by the Deep State, the Republican party was complicit, incompetent and silent in the face of evil. I do not want to overlook our apathy as this “transition” to tyranny went unchallenged. However, the final consequence is that America is no longer great.
As to the second point, our country has to reach rock bottom in order to fight evil and rebuild a better country and future for our children. When will we know when this point is reached? The answer is simple: when our leaders are so desperate that they think we will believe that wanting to make our country great again is an extremist view and threatens the very Republic.
Some years back, I asked what seemed to me a simple, straightforward question: who could possibly be AGAINST “making American great again”? I realize now that I missed the point, and badly. For MAGA Americans, it all comes down to rededicating ourselves and our ersatz nation to the principles of liberty and limited government as prescribed in the Constitution. Yes, as Dave says, we are all too aware that America has had its greatness stripped away by the Left’s all-too-successful Long March. The thing is, though, that we do believe that America WAS great once, and can still be made so again.
Ahh, but that’s precisely where we part ways with the TWANLOCs: in their eyes, America was never “great” to begin with, and can never hope to become so unless Americans embrace the foul Leftist catechism of total despotism and subjugation without reservation. This flawlessly defines the breach between Us and Them—a chasm now grown so vast that there is no longer any realistic possibility of accommodation, reconciliation, or so much as peaceful coexistence between the opposing sides.
I’ll say it again: WE would be a-okay with peacefully coexisting with THEM, if they’d just agree to leave us alone to live as we deem fit. Doesn’t sound like too much to ask, now does it? But alas, that happens to be the very thing they can never, ever do, since their preferred flavor of tyranny used to be called Global Socialism—emphasis on the Global, mind. Any dewey-eyed university co-ed would cheerfully tell you that it just won’t work any other way, see. TL ain’t skeered of ’em.
I was not threatened by Joe Biden’s speech, he didn’t say anything new. Those who are patriots to the ideals and the principles of the republic have felt such threats and heavy-breathing hysterics often before. The squeals and mindless rants of Hillary supporters have kept that dialog alive for nearly a decade. The endless investigations of Trump, the spying on the campaign by Barack Obama, even when such treasonous actions were known by the highest offices of the Department of Justice and covered up or left undiscovered by an incurious media explained where this nation was headed. The left was always intent on choosing their dictator to rule over the rest of us. It’s how they’re wired. But no amount of hyperbolic recitations of a script, as insane as it sounded, as dismissive and even dangerous as it wanted to be to a great majority of Americans, would be greater than the injustices already inflicted by the previous several administrations.
That boat sailed long ago, its wake has rocked the even waters of justice for decades. There is no justice for anyone claiming the rights and principles of the republic. The republic is a threat to democracy, where democracy is a euphemism for fascism. The republic and the rights enjoyed by Americans stands in their way, it represents, as Barack Obama told us himself, a charter of negative rights. In other words it tells the state what it cannot do. Yes!
But the state stopped listening. It’s already too invested in the absolute degradation of the human rights encapsulated in the Bill of Rights to ever recognize such power over the state. In that way, patriots are treasonous to communist/fascism. Joe got that part right. They are the enemy.
Do you not recognize that if they can so bastardize the word “woman” to the point where no one seems to be able to recite the actual literal definition as a female uniquely capable of bearing children, that they can make communist/fascism into “democracy?” They see only their goal, not the hypocrisy, or the ridiculous twists of logic it takes to make that goal seem reasonable and justified. They don’t believe in reality, except that which they choose as reality and as such are incapable of proffering any logical conclusion to their rants.
A normal, healthy public would not be able to stomach it all. Forget political parties, simple human intelligence and empathy would preclude agreement with the vision Joe Biden and the globalist/fascist left have for the nation. But, as a nation, we are not healthy. Many have been poisoned by the constant drumbeat of leftist dogma in our schools, hospitals, social clubs, corporations and even sports, the point of which is to destroy the republic, which has fostered great acts of charity, kindness and strength to the weak and oppressed the world over. These are not the gifts of the government, but of the people themselves, those who have been spiritually enriched by a system now deemed cruel and insensitive. The good is never mentioned, only the faults and failures. No one and no system can survive such a harsh and unfair barrage of criticisms from people who do not seek good or proper, but rather the destruction and defamation of good and proper to install a system of filthy lust for power; the power to tell everyone what to speak, how to speak, what to mention and not mention about the realities of the world; power to point at anything and declare it guilty; power to not merely defeat opponents, but to utterly destroy them for the sick enjoyment of their brethren.
It’s a perverse nation that Joe Biden speaks for when he vilifies more than half of the population with a seeming slur that merely calls on Americans to seek greatness rather than accept the lie of weakness and shame. Joe Biden represents his masters, the authors of these lies about America. But every generation left to their bully tactics, their devious attempts to corrupt the nation’s children from the earliest ages into their sick blood cult of perversity dims the sight of the once glorious concept of freedom and sacred morality.
Let him speak, let him rant and rail against honesty and decency, calling it corrupt and vile as all goodness must seem to such a creature.
The situation may sometimes seem novel or new to us, but in fact this impasse has been a long time a-building. Although things have definitely hotted up over recent years, there’s actually nothing novel or new about it at all. Likewise for the one, the only way out of it. We’ve all long known what the sole solution is; ugly as it admittedly is, it’s time-honored, tried and true also.
That said, I’m not nearly as sanguine as TL about all this. Having been emboldened by the passive non-response to the Covid lockdowns; the blatantly fraudulent 2020 “election”; and the grotesque J6 persecution for the heinous crime of “parading,” of all things, the ramping-up of belligerent, threatening rhetoric openly calling for war against MAGA Americans culminating in Benito Biden’s bellicose diatribe the other night isn’t something we can afford to wave away as if it meant nothing whatsoever.
