There Is No Moral Equivalence Between Behavior of the Progressive Left and the Patriotic Right
The savage shooting today of Republicans in Virginia by a leftist Democrat supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders should end the ridiculous notion of moral equivalence between progressive left and conservative right in this country.
What grates on the nerves of so many conservatives is having to listen to spineless politicians and media types, afraid of being politically incorrect, criticize a leftist murderer or some other despicable leftist character by quickly making the claim we need a toning down of the rhetoric on “both sides.”
No, the rhetoric and the violence is coming primarily from the Left. Everyone who isn’t comatose is aware of this fact.
Since President Trump wiped the floor with Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, the collective Left have been spewing hatred, lies, and invectives because of their loss. The progressive leftist media, Democrat leadership throughout the country, leftist college professors and unhinged leftist students, the leftist-infested entertainment and sports industries, and all the people like the Democrat Trump-hater James Hodgkinson, who caused the mayhem today, have gone off the rails in their evil attempts to subvert the will of the American people. Those of us who rejected, unequivocally, the madness that Barack Obama and his puppet masters visited upon our country during the past eight years. Those of us who spat upon the notion of a “fundamental transformation” of our way of life. No, we are not the problem, here.
Why should we spew hatred; we won the election with a man who, like us, wants to turn our nation back to the path on which the Founders put us a couple of centuries ago. We have no need to spew hatred against the losers on the Left. Our attention is directed forward toward the prospects of what the Trump administration can do for this nation and all its citizens. We don’t have time to obsess over progressives.
I found it difficult to listen to the media types on all the news channels today (including Fox News) braying about the need for us to come together for our “shared purposes.”
There are no shared purposes in the nation anymore. The progressive Left hates this nation; they do not share anything in common with patriotic Americans. That time when the vast majority of us believed in one nation under law (the Constitution) is long gone. The socialist progressive Left have polluted the minds of a couple of generations of young Americans, feeding them the lie that socialism works. These young people are ignorant of all real examples of the disastrous results of practiced socialism. They are not taught history (ours or anybody else’s). They are not taught the Constitution. And they can be and have been easily manipulated by malevolent adults in our midst.
Eight years of the evil that was Barack Obama made it glaringly clear the people who supported his agenda and those of us who want to retain our Constitutional Republic have no more in common than the Colonists had with the Loyalists during the American Revolution or than the North had with the South during the Civil War. Anybody who thinks there is common ground is grossly naïve.
So, to those bleeding hearts asking plaintively if this fake camaraderie will last, which was spawned by a Democrat hater shooting innocent people because his side lost an election, the answer is unequivocally “No”! You should know by now Democrat leaders are liars; Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are liars, and they will continue to foment hatred among their base because they think the hatred will gain them political ground.
My assessment is that everyone will know sure enough if those of us on the patriotic Right ever decide to strike back at the Left to defend ourselves from their shenanigans: attacking Trump supporters at rallies while spineless police chiefs tell law officers not to interfere with the violence, polluting social media with the vilest of content against Trump and his supporters (in the manner of today’s shooter), attacking and intimidating conservative students on leftist campuses, persecuting Christians who will not bow to their social-justice agenda, and many more such offenses.
If the patriots in this country ever say we’ve had enough and do to the Left what they have been so brazenly allowed to do to us, the world will know.
The world will know, because that will be the next civil war, and then those spineless whiners who feel the need to draw moral equivalence between what the Left is doing and what patriots are doing will be justified in their assessment. This nation had better pray it never comes to that.
