The Justification for a Preemptive Autocracy

Posted on February 13, 2017 by Robert Ringer


In my article “My Next Unequivocal Prediction,” I said there is zero chance that the Dirty Dems will ever stop their hate mongering, slandering, race-baiting, and lying. You can be certain that even after the bloodbath they are almost certain to take in the 2018 midterms, they still will not admit even to themselves that their childish theatrical tantrums do not work. As a result, you can expect them to ratchet up their violence-prone behavior even more.

Donald Trump is a too-good-to-be-true gift for the Radical Left, because he gives them soft pitches to hit every day of the week. And, like Wile E. Coyote, they’ve been having a field day swinging hard at every pitch. The problem is that they’re swinging at too many bad pitches and are not only missing the ball, they’re swinging so hard that they’re hitting themselves in the back of the head. Beep! Beep!

Although legislators of goodwill are in short supply in the Democratic Party, the handful that remain have got to be getting very concerned that the party is just a few more Pocahontas or Chuckie Schumer rants away from ceasing to exist as a major party.

Even the ever-nasty Rahm Emanuel recently said, in a speech at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, “It took us (the Democratic Party) a long time to get this low. It ain’t gonna happen in 2018. Take a chill pill, man. You gotta be in this for the long haul. And if you think it’s going to be a quick turn around like that, it’s not.”

And in a speech last month, Obama’s one-time senior advisor, David Axelrod, said, “I have a concern that we’re in this mad cycle of mutually assured destruction, and if our attitude is we’re not going to do anything — even if it’s meritorious because it might redound to the benefit of this president — I think that we are only going to increase the level of already very significant cynicism people have about whether the system can work. If that happens, it’s actually Democrats who will suffer the most, because they actually believe in government.”

So can the small number of influential, sane Democrats rescue the party from its kamikaze-like mission of self-destruction? It’s possible — anything is possible — but the odds are against it. If liberalism is, in the words of Michael Savage, a mental disorder, then Radical Leftism is hardcore insanity. Despicable people like Harry Reid, Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, Al Franken, et al are certifiable psychopaths who appear to be totally incapable of tamping down their hatred and malevolence.

Insanity is not just doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. To be sure, the Dirty Dems are notorious for making this well-known mistake. But insanity could also be described as a willingness to destroy oneself if it also results in inflicting pain on those you hate. This is why the Radical Left has such an infinity for using violence against its enemies even though it hurts them politically.

What I find quite enjoyable about all this is that the deplorables on the left are so out of touch that they don’t even realize they’re cannibalizing themselves. Even so, while we’re sitting back and taking delight in watching the Dirty Dems destroy themselves, we should keep in mind that in the process of doing so, they may very well also succeed in destroying what’s left of America.

Of course, slander and mudslinging between political parties are nothing new to American politics. However, this is the first time in history that one party has openly let it be known that it will do anything — anything — to stop a president from implementing his agenda.

Which includes, among other things, making up false news stories, lying, cheating, and employing violence to obstruct the current administration from carrying out its constitutional duties, even though it 62 million people voted in favor of its agenda! Nothing is off limits anymore — not even Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, the privacy of First Lady, or the president’s 10-year-old son.

Ever since I was a teenager I have believed that the world would ultimate come down to war between “civil” and “uncivilized” people. Even though I had a very shallow knowledge of politics and government in my teens, the more I observed the words and actions of those around me, as well as people in the news, it seemed to me that a showdown was inevitable. I just couldn’t see how there could ever be a lasting compromise between good and evil, especially since everyone describes those terms to suit himself.

Having said this, I am obliged to point out that what makes the prospect of violence so great is not just the Radical Left’s “by any means necessary” philosophy, but the Boy Scout, holier-than-thou cooperation of so many high-profile Republicans who rush to denounce any attempt by those on the right to fight back against the fascist tactics of the left.

You cannot afford to have Benedict Arnolds like Jason Chaffetz, Mush McCain, Mitt Romney, Gomer Graham, and Little Marco in your ranks while doing battle with an enemy that rejects all rules of warfare. These unprincipled Boy Scouts are as much the enemy as are people like Harry Reid, Chuckie Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Keith Ellison, Al Franken, Tim Kaine, et al who view them as nothing more than useful idiots.

And, though no one seems to be willing to utter his name in a negative light, make no mistake about the fact that Barack Obama was the trigger for all this. Notice that I said trigger, because it all started decades before he was born.

The Radical Left has been hell bent on destroying Western culture, America, and the Constitution since at least the days of FDR. But through his hateful and divisive rhetoric, what Obama managed to accomplish was to embolden those on the left to resort to whatever dirty tactics and violence are necessary to bring about a full-blown police state.

Also to his credit, Obama, through his “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun” and “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends” style of rhetoric, did nearly succeed in his goal of establishing a left-wing, fascist dictatorship in the United States (as in, “fundamentally transforming the United States of America”).

The only thing that tripped him up was his own arrogance, which led him to believe he could use his vastly overrated personal charm to get Horrible Hillary elected, then, because he held the keys to her jail cell, use her as a puppet to finish the job. But a funny thing happened on the way to his reaching his goal: Donald Trump.

Now Trump is pumping up the right at least as much, if not more, than Barack Obama was able to pump up his anti-American, anti-Western civilization, anti-white, anti-Christian followers. And neither Obama nor his mindless supporters have a clue as to what to do about it, so in their panic they have apparently decided to continue to make the same mistakes that got them booted out of office in the first place.

I’ve prolonged saying this for many years, but I believe the time has now come to put it out there: As a one-time purist libertarian, my patience is growing thin with the Radical Left that is now in full control of the Democratic Party. So much so that I am starting rethink my libertarian roots and pondering the unthinkable — the idea of those now in power taking preemptive action against those who are actively trying to destroy America.

An autocracy would be anathema to me, but if those on the Radical Left are committed to bringing one about — which they clearly are — the lesser of two evils would be to empower a Trump-like autocracy to crack down on them first. Time and again throughout history we have learned that the only thing evildoers seem to understand is brute force. Purist ideology is a delicious fantasy, but pragmatism is the most effective tool for dealing with reality.

I thought about this a lot last Friday when a group of Black Lives Matters thugs tried to block Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering Jefferson Middle School in Washington D.C. It had the look and feel of a serious revolution that cried out for a new marker to be laid down — a red line in the concrete jungles of our major cities, as in “enough is enough!”

Unless there is a swift and powerful crackdown on lawlessness in the immediate future, I fear that the Radical Left’s hatred runs so deep that the United States might soon find itself in a real, live civil war — meaning a shooting war — even before the coming 2018 midterm massacre.

What a loving thought leading into Valentine’s Day. But, hey, I could be wrong.
