Today, Feb. 26, 2011 was a dark day for Western North Carolina. I attended the rally to “Save the American Dream” in Asheville today. That was sad enough. But I was a committee of one. Not one other Western Carolina person dared come forth to stand against what these people support. I was not assaulted. I was not even talked to harshly. I was basically ignored. I did not openly protest. What for?
My observation on these people is that most of them are not evil. They are neighbors who have bought the Big Lie. There is no reasoning with them. One cannot educate them. They will not listen to your arguments. They hold their ears and sing loudly so as not to hear what you have to say. Most seem intelligent but how can one say they are intelligent if they bought the Big Lie and will not listen to anything else. They are elitists who think they are the only ones who can possibly be right. But all in all, they are simply following an insidious group of dictators who are working toward total control through communist/Marxists tactics. I wanted to scream at the people in the crowd, “Don’t you realize you are being led by Van Jones and his ilk? Have you not investigated who came up with ‘Save the American Dream’?” But to what advantage? They do not want to hear from me. Today, I left an event that, unbeknownst to the crowd, was the completion of the destruction of America, not saving the dream. I left with tears in my eyes.
Let me say about the grassroots people of Western Carolina. Fold your tents. You are doing nothing except aiding and abetting that group who held the rally. Do you think you can hide in your houses and only come out when the time suits you. Do you think you are changing anything by waiting for elections and voting for Republicans? With your absence, that crowd was emboldened and empowered to continue on. Why not? Where is the opposition? Why shouldn’t they continue until there is no more America. If what happened in Asheville happened across this nation today, this country will never survive, no matter how many elections you think you can conquer to “change” the direction. So sad, so very, very sad.
