Allen West: Everyone and Everything Is Racist….if You Disagree With the Left

During the 2020 election cycle, Joe Biden made the abhorrent claim that being Black was contingent upon voting for him. He infamously asserted, "if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." Doggone, what shall I list as my ethnicity on my ATF Form 4473 the next time I go to purchase a firearm, as a law-abiding citizen? The new line of attack for the progressive socialist left in America is to denigrate anyone and everything as racist. It is what we are witnessing as cultural Marxism manifests in absurdities such as critical race theory and equity programs. To the left, it is simple, divide America into two categories, oppressors and oppressed.

Allen West: The Left’s Hatred of America

Fast forward to today and there is no debate that progressives, socialists, Marxists, statists, and communists have but one goal in mind. It is the objective articulated by Barack Obama, America's first openly socialist president, in the final days of the 2008 election. He stated at a rally in Columbia, Missouri, "we are just five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

Mobocracy

The ideological agenda of the progressive socialist left supports killing American babies in the womb and killing Americans via drug overdoses. If we do not restore our regard for the rule of law, our Constitution, our future is in question.

Allen West: No More Tolerating the Intolerant

When tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide -- Col. Allen West I have shared the aforementioned quote often, mainly when addressing the scourge of Islamic jihadism and terrorism in the West. However, there is a clear and present reason to apply this same quote to present day America and the scourge of progressive socialism.

Allen West: A Bridge Too Far, the Demise of the Democrats

If you are a student of history, you will recognize the title of this missive. If you are not, let me explain. After the successful landings in Normandy the Allies began pushing through the hedgerows and set their sights on crossings into Germany. One of the plans, offered by British General Montgomery, was to spearhead a combined airborne and ground assault through the Netherlands and cross the Rhine River into northern Germany. The operation was to be called Market (Airborne) Garden (Ground). It was to be the largest airborne operation ever known and it pulled together US and British Airborne forces who were to seize critical bridges along a singular route enabling the British Armored XXX Corps to push through.

Battle Lines Drawn: Leftists Employ ‘Any Means Necessary’ Strategy

This last week has confirmed what history has taught the world about progressives, socialists, Marxists, statists, and communists. They can only advance their ideology and goals by way of creating fear, intimidation, coercion, threats, and ultimately, violence. That lesson is being evidenced here in America to the detriment of one of our cherished constitutional rights and institutions of our Republic.

The Left’s Meltdown Over Elon Musk Buying Twitter

Okay, it is now two weeks in a row that the progressive socialist left has been in an apoplectic meltdown. Last week it was all about a federal judge in Florida saying what everyone knew to be true: the CDC doesn't have authority to mandate anything to the American people. Yes, if you want to don a face covering, you have the liberty to do so. If you do not, you cannot be forced, or coerced, to do so. Hmm, I tend to believe that same principle applies to mandating a shot. This week, the left is going nuts because one Elon Musk, a private entrepreneur, has purchased Twitter. Heavens to mergatroids, the world is coming to an end. Yes, the empty threats of getting off Twitter and moving to Canada pervade, neither of which will happen. Leftists did not care about Musk starting Tesla, and the government subsidies that come with buying electric vehicles. Leftists did not care when Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post, where truth does tend to die in their darkness. Leftists had no problem with Michael Bloomberg -- what political persuasion is he today? -- bought an entire news media platform. Leftists have no issue with Mark Zuckerberg owning Facebook/Meta, whatever, and using his war chest to give Zuckerbucks to selected County elections offices, like Harris County in Texas. So what has the left in such a tizzy?

Allen West: The Maniacal Mask Crisis Tyrants

Chances are if you say the word "Florida" to a progressive socialist leftist they will go into a frothing apoplectic rage. Now, I live in Texas and I wish that saying "Texas" would do the same, but perhaps that is the topic of another missive. Under the leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis, the State of Florida has truly become a thorn in the side of leftists. How dare anyone stand up to the left's agenda, and not capitulate to some doggone woke corporate fascist oligarch, like a Disney.
