As Solzhenitsyn wrote: “We didn’t love freedom enough.” I find myself in the same position as he, not yet in a camp, but knowing that, by the rhetoric of the left, that is a goal they strive to achieve, to put someone in a camp, to kill as much of someone as they can, that is the communist spirit. They are not educated well enough to recognize that all communists have persecuted their own people, who were occasionally minorities. That is how the left works. It does not care about right or wrong, just or unjust it cares only about us and them. The “us” can commit any crime, do any violence, debilitate others and act with prejudice and racism at will without fear of consequence, but a “them” must not look in an insolent manner, be prideful or even attempt to engage socially with an “us.”
The left does not care that it is everything that it claims to hate, that it perfectly models all of the attributes of their enemies, the hypocrisy and stupidity of it does not even occur to those accustomed to looking at the world through funhouse glasses.
But, it is not the left that concerns me, it is the right, it is the republican, the patriot, because there has to be resistance to insanity. Look how far the left has twisted society into the ugly mass it has become. It is the complacency of the right that is the real danger to the republic. It is the right that is cowering in their homes praying that the knock on the door is not for them.
There are those standing up for the rest, taking the slings and arrows and getting doxed, but not enough, not nearly enough. The time to be polite and to hold one’s political views to themselves is over. The capitulation of the right has already led to the popularity of actual, open communists in government who have stated their intent to transform America. Barack Obama started the transformation and it was supposed to be followed up by and completed by Hillary Clinton, someone who knows how to use a death squad for effect.
The election of Donald Trump slowed down their transformation, but it did not deter their intent, they simply chose new leaders from the House to shove out front and declare their bold intent to subvert and kill all in their way.
Some Republicans think that if there were someone else in the White House that the left would not be so aggravated, so emboldened, it is only because Trump has said such incendiary things that the left is as motivated as they are now. Nothing could be further from the truth. The left is motivated, because the left is always motivated, always dedicated to hating its enemies and destroying those in opposition to their communist agenda. Donald Trump might make it easier, but in fact all he really does is make the left remove their masks of civility; he exposes them for the hate-filled, murderous people they are.
That is why the silence of the Republicans has so damaged this nation; has allowed a few individuals to cause such upheaval. Without resistance of some kind, there is only advancement by those who hate America and white people in general, it seems. Somehow, the white Marxists get a pass for being white, but not the white patriots. This is a classic leftist maneuver around sanity and cohesive thought. This is the sort of hypocrisy that needs to be pointed out and ridiculed at every opportunity.
Do you love freedom? Do you know what that is? People misunderstand the Bill of Rights. They were not designed to guarantee anything, support anything, they were supposed to be used as a gauge of tyranny. Those ten items suggested to a people that a proper government, a benevolent government would refrain from encroaching on those areas of an individual’s life. To the extent that a government cannot restrain itself from imposing on those areas, is the degree to which it is a tyrannical government. Re-read the Bill of Rights and see how free you are.
A government that only understands the actions of the communist left cannot understand the patriotic right. To them, silence is not a sign of strength, it is a sign of weakness, of fear, of obedience. Until now, we have all sought to conduct our lives with as little contact with government as possible and the communists have sought to conduct life with as much government contact as possible. Which has been the more effective in manipulating society?
That is the point, everything the left wants to do, the right does not. It is not for a person interested in liberty to lobby
for restrictions, but failing to lobby at all opens the door to those willing to enslave and imprison the opposition. One does not have to be wrong or a criminal to be imprisoned by the left, they merely have to be in opposition. While everyone on the right is looking for a battle to fight, the whole battlefield is being excavated beneath them.
Take some time to read or re-read this from Mises: https://mises.org/library/revolution–was
This was written in 1938, but could have been written yesterday. If a fight is coming, will the right even exist?
