Watching American law, American history, and American culture being cancelled brings to mind a prescient insight by John Adams: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
While some may challenge the “religious people” aspect of Adams’ statement, there can be no doubt he was correct about the absolute necessity of a moral people when it comes to the effectiveness of the Constitution. By moral people, Adams clearly was referring to those who believe in the natural rights of man — specifically, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Immoral people reject these rights, because they view them as nothing more than annoying obstacles.
Which brings me to today’s Democratic Party, a majority of whose members are immoral to the core. In their narcissistic view of themselves, they believe their noble ends justify any means necessary — which is why they will do anything, anywhere, anytime, to anybody, without regard to the pain and suffering brought about by their actions.
Specifically, today’s Democrats have made a political calculation that joining the march to Marxism is the most certain road to achieving power, which is underscored by how closely they mimic some of the most infamous Marxist tyrants of the past 150 years. Perhaps the most obvious similarity between Radical Left revolutionaries of today and those of the past is an excess of hubris coupled with utter disdain for those with opposing views.
The father of communist ideology, Karl Marx, was notoriously arrogant, narcissistic, and dismissive of the ideas of others. Though he never accomplished anything of note on his own — and, in fact, never even held a real job — Marx believed it was his moral duty to save the workers of the world from the “evils of capitalism,” even if he had to do it against their will.
Perhaps Marx’s greatest talent was his ability to con people into subsidizing his financial needs — including his mother, even after he was a husband and father. Ultimately, Friedrich Engels, whose family had accumulated considerable wealth from its textile and cotton businesses, became his chief benefactor. Engels, whose admiration for Marx knew no bounds, never failed to grant him whatever financial aid he requested.
Engels was a prolific writer and thinker in his own right, and, in fact, did much of the penmanship that has been attributed to Marx. I’ve never been able to figure out Engels’ undying admiration for Marx, which he demonstrated not only with financial aid, but by giving him credit for most of their joint work. Engels saw Marx as the master theoretician of communism while viewing himself as the person whose job it was to spread the message to the world.
It’s important to point out here that even though neither Marx nor Engels ever addressed the subject, communism and fascism are really two sides of the same ideological coin. Both of these ideologies are justifications for authoritarianism, which is why one-time communist Benito Mussolini found it so easy to switch to fascism when the Italian Socialist Party expelled him for advocating military intervention in World War I. Likewise, the Nazi Party in Germany had its roots in socialism, as evidenced by its official name, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
Thus, Radical Leftists who try to pin the fascist label on those who believe in liberty rely on an uninformed public to support their false accusations, because the truth is that Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and all other left-wing groups are the real fascists. Amazingly, they have succeeded in selling their fascistic lies to major institutions, corporations, sports leagues, and much of the general public. Above all, they have been successful in infiltrating the Democratic Party and now find themselves in control of the party’s platform.
The words and actions of Democrats over the past several years have made it clear that if they ever regain full control of the federal government, they will do away with the rule of law, the Constitution, and anything else that they, and they alone, deem to be “racist.” And to ensure they never again lose power, they will import millions of uneducated, unskilled voters from third-world countries, abolish the Electoral College, award two Senate seats to the District of Columbia, carry out their promise to pack the Supreme Court as a firewall against Republican pushback — and a whole lot more.
In effect, Democrats intend to cancel the Republican Party and all other opposition by either eliminating elections altogether or stacking the deck in such a way as to guarantee their outcomes. The perpetually enraged Radical Left is furious that an ignorant, uncouth reprobate like Donald Trump was elected to the highest office in the land by a sea of deplorables whom they consider to be too stupid to cast intelligent votes. The only way Democrats can be certain that such a catastrophe will never again occur is to cancel the votes of the red rubes in flyover country.
Ideally, the best way to stop Democratic treachery is to eliminate the source — the Democratic Party itself. One could make a good case that the Democratic Party should be outlawed for the same reasons that the Nazi Party was outlawed following World War II and the Communist Party after the collapse of the Soviet Union: (1) It poses an imminent danger to democracy, (2) its objectives are unconstitutional, and (3) it promotes violence.
Unfortunately, even though it’s obvious that Democrats are intent on cancelling Republican votes, Republicans would never have the courage to do the same to Democrats. That being the case, the next best thing is to soundly defeat them — not just in the upcoming election, but in all future elections — because repetitive defeats would bring about civil war within the Democratic Party that would cause it to implode.
Fortunately, you can always count on the Radical Left to eat its own. In less than two years, Marxist ignoramuses like AOC, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib have nearly destroyed the Democratic Party, and they’re just getting warmed up. Today, rioting in cities across America have made it clear that there are thousands of hatemongers in the Democratic pipeline, so things will only get worse for Democrats like Pelosi, Schumer, and Durbin who don’t give a damn about racism, COVID, illegals, et al. All they want is to be able to continue quietly stealing from taxpayers without having to deal with all the revolutionary B.S.
That said, if the GOP is fortunate enough not only to win the presidency in November, but the House and Senate as well, it will probably be their last chance to put an end to Democratic tyranny. The time has come for jellyfish Republicans to stop tiptoeing and making nice to Democrats who want to destroy them.
Specifically, it’s time to put aside banal clichés like “We have to all come together,” “my friends across the aisle,” and, the most barf-worthy cliché of all, “We have to have a national dialogue about race.” (For crying out loud, we’ve been having a “national dialogue” about race for more than 50 years!)
Speaking for myself, I have no desire to “come together” with Democrats, because their radical, authoritarian agenda is antithetical to everything that matters to me. Compromise? No thanks. I refuse to compromise with people who have made it clear that their intention is to cancel me and my way of life.
Someone had better convince Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Grrr…ahm, Li’l Marco, and the rest of the weak-kneed RINOs in Congress that no matter how much they appease the enemy, they, too, will face the guillotine once the Democrats take power. That would be about the only thing I would truly enjoy watching if the Democratic Mob takes over in January.
