The time has come that we — as constitutional conservatives and Republicans — stop playing this absurd adherence to Marquis de Quisenberry’s rules. It is imperative to understand the strategy, goals, plans, and objectives of the radical leftists and Marxists; that is why I have a copy of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” in my home. The leftists in America have no issue with wrongly castigating and demonizing their political opposition in the most despicable and heinous terms. We need not lower ourselves to such a level of depravity, but we must simply tell the truth. As we head into the final stretch of this midterm election […]
"What you heard from the president today is a clear articulation of the stakes. This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm." - Biden administration National Economic Council Director, Brian Deese This quote came during an interview on CNN with Mr. Deese after President Biden responded that the American people would have to endure the exorbitantly high fuel prices as long as the conflagration in Ukraine continues. In essence, what Brian Deese was expressing is what we would say in military vernacular, "embrace the suck." And the “suck” is the liberal world order, better known as the progressive socialist Marxist ideological agenda.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" -- George Santayana, Spanish Political Philosopher. Young military leaders are taught to study history and battles to look for parallels. There are certain principles that are immutable and transcend time. Last week as we heard about the televised January 6th hearings, more of a Stalinesque show trial, I reflected back upon the history of the Democrat Party in America. It is a history that can be summed up in four S-words; slavery, secession, segregation, and socialism. And if there is one unifying word that transcends each of those phases, it is violence.
Remember these two numbers: 100 million and 1.5 billion. Those were the two numbers emphasized at the dedication on Wednesday of the new Victims of Communism Museum in Washington, D.C., which I was privileged to attend along with my family. An estimated 100 million is the number of human beings slaughtered, massacred, and killed by Marxist, communist regimes in the past 100 years, from the Soviet Union to Red China to Castro’s Cuba. And 1.5 billion is the number of people still suffering under oppressive, tyrannical communist regimes today.
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.
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.
