There is a Chinese curse that says, “May you live in interesting times.” We are certainly there. We are at a time when the blatant hypocrisy before us would be laughable if not so doggone serious. What ails America today is the complete and abject relativism of the progressive socialist left when it comes to moral, constitutional, and judicial matters...truth. Truth is not situational or subjective, but that is what the left wishes us to believe. Truth to them is rooted in their ideological agenda, all else be damned. It is the greatest evidence of Machiavellian thought; their ends will always justify their means. And their ends shall be attained by any means necessary.
Consider the events of April 19, 1775 at a place called Lexington Green in Massachusetts. As the British landed and were marching inland towards Concord for the purpose of destroying a weapons and armaments factory, men of valor prepared and answered the call to arms. The British military was the most powerful land force the world knew. Yet, those Sons of Liberty knew there was something at stake: liberty from tyranny. And so, they took the field of Lexington Green and fired the shot that was heard around the world.
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.
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."
Have you ever wondered which group is the most “extreme political organization in the United States?” Perhaps the Ku Klux Klan? How about Antifa? Maybe the Weather Underground? Or what about the Westboro Baptist Church crowd? Nope. According to President Joe Biden, the most extreme political organization is “those MAGA people.”
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.
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.
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.
Do you know what type of events “woke” tech company Eventbrite values and promotes? How about naked yoga, semen retention, and “meet a black person?” Regarding that last one, is there anything more inherently condescending and racist? Do you want to know what type of events offend Eventbrite’s “less durable” sensitivities? Memorial Day weekend gatherings for veterans and military honoring our country and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
