With the vicious disruptions we’ve been witnessing at Trump rallies, it would take a brain-dead establishment Republican like Robo Rubio, Kumbaya Kasich, or the nauseatingly self-righteous Ted Cruz not to recognize that if there’s such a thing as evil, the radical left personifies it.
The planned chaos at recent Trump events is right out of Uncle Saul’s bible for troublemakers, “Rules for Sleazeballs.” You know the drill by now — stir people up, promote hate, call your enemies racists, and if they push back, accuse them of being violent. It’s all part of an age-old, radical-left tactic known as “projection.”
It also helps to misquote people, take what they say out of context, add or delete a few words to or from what they say, and, above all, state your conclusion as a premise (a.k.a. as an “priori argument”). Examples of this cut little trick include:
“It’s a fact that Donald Trump is using Hitler-like tactics (conclusion used as a premise), so he has to be silenced.”
“Manmade global warming is a scientific fact (conclusion used as a premise), so let’s jail those who are deniers.”
“It’s a proven fact that Barack Obama was born in the United States (conclusion used as a premise), so anyone who says otherwise is a racist.”
There’s a good reason why the radical left uses these tactics: They work! And the reason they work is because millions of people are uninformed. Worse, they’ve been brainwashed for so long that they refuse to even consider the facts for fear the truth would destroy the very foundation upon which they have based meaningless lives.
That’s why liberalism … progressivism … Marxism … communism — whatever label you want to give it — cannot be overcome through reason. Contrary to what establishment Republicans would like us to believe, “working together” and compromising is not the solution.
To the radical left, compromise means that your opponents must surrender. And since that’s their stance, the only rational solution is to totally destroy the destructive philosophy of the radical left before it destroys the good that is still left in the world.
I treasure free speech, but I fear that returning to a prosperous country with a generally accepted, civilized code of conduct may not be possible without infringing upon the free-speech rights of those whose intention it is to destroy America.
Simply put, what it all gets down to is a civilized society versus a radical-left, totalitarian state. And, sadly, a civilized society is not possible without their being reasonable restrictions placed upon the freedoms of those whose stated intention it is to violate the rights of others.
Probably nothing more clearly sums up the thinking of the radical-left cabal than those infamous words from its current leader: “We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends.”
It’s when I first heard these words that it erased any doubt in my mind that the notion of compromising with the radical left is a naive idea — and a dangerous one at that. Which is why, from this point on, establishment Republicans must be primaried at every election. It’s been crystal clear for decades that they are the enablers that make tyranny possible.
