Traditional Americans who want limited government, fiscal responsibility, adherence to our Bill of Rights and the rule of law are under fire from the Democratic Party and the media who actively promote their causes. It is a distraction from the real threat which is the Socialism and Communism consuming the Democratic Party.
Their doom and gloom ideology can only succeed if they win over the nation’s psyche which they are doing effectively. We can see it in the fight over the Confederate battle flag on the grounds of the South Carolina state capitol.
Rush Limbaugh believes the fight isn’t over the flag or racism, it’s over the south’s political identity. Rush Limbaugh spoke about that on his show today and, recognizing the current movement towards erasing our history and our traditions, he believes the American flag will be questioned in the near future.
“I have a prediction…Do not doubt me.”
“If you take a look at the timeline of progressive events, their speed and rapidity with which the left is conducting this assault on all of these American traditions and institutions, if you don’t think the American flag’s in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider,” Limbaugh continued.
“It isn’t gonna be long before the American flag is gonna cause chills, fear, scary thoughts,” Limbaugh said.
He is likely correct. Harry Reid announced today that the confederate statues in the Capitol must be looked at for possible removal. There will be no end to the left’s demands and any excuse will do. Even though it’s being done partly to get votes, there is a much deeper reason.
Why not close the Confederate battlefields, the Alamo, the site of Custer’s Last Stand, museums in Lexington and Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson’s homes? They all offend someone.
The left wants to erase our history and any sign there was a confederacy but it won’t stop until all we see is what they agree with.
Leftists see the United States as an evil place that needs reforming. They see a welfare state that takes care of the collective from birth to death as desirable. Unfortunately, their morals are all relative which makes deceit easy and often preferable. If bullying, taxing, imprisonment and other means of force are needed for these know-it-all control freaks to enact their beneficent nanny state, they will do it without guilt.
Rush addressed the movement of the Democratic Party towards communism on Monday.
The Democratic Party today “isn’t the party of JFK”, he said, “it’s the party of Bernie Sanders”. It’s “full-on Socialist, Marxist, whatever you want to call it” and the average Democrat “identifying as uber left liberals is skyrocketing”.
There’s no question the Democrat Party has moved extreme far-left and the lunacy has gone mainstream in the party, he believes.
Global warming is so “much more than a plan to elect Democrats…it’s far more oppressive and dangerous”. Global warming has every mechanism to eliminate our Constitution, our individual liberty, private property and install global governance, he said.
“I don’t deny the Democrat Party is moving towards communism at all,” Rush said.
Whether a person likes Rush or not, it’s impossible to ignore the obvious.
The Democrat Party wants everything the Communist and Socialist parties in this country want.
The big welfare state, the dependence on government – in fact, complete subservience, the eradication of individual liberty to be replaced by collectivism, and one party rule with no differing opinions – all are their collective goals.
We see our Bill of Rights under constant attack and our belief systems are being eroded. American Exceptionalism is abandoned. Professors in the University of California can no longer say America is the land of opportunity and leftists want to destroy our patriotic holidays. Communist Mayor de Blasio in New York City is adding foreign holidays to show we are not American, we are multicultural.
The pope has given the leftists the moral backing they hoped for because he is no fan of Capitalism.
Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which property is privately owned. Individual rights are so critical that they can only be violated by force.
Socialism states that man has no right to exist for his own sake.
Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Totalitarianism, Collectivism, whatever you choose to call these types of -isms, concentrate power in the state. They require the subjugation of the individual to a group and force everyone to think the same and act the same for the collective good.
While they steal one’s identity and personal resources, they claim they are the generous altruistic ones. Theft is good, individualism is bad.
Individualism holds that man is an independent entity with an inalienable right to the pursuit of his own happiness in a society where men deal with one another as equals.
We can see in the debate over the Second Amendment that the principle of natural, inalienable rights is under assault. The left believes our rights come from the government which serves the collective good.
While hoping for a Utopia that solves all problems of crime, racism and other evils, statism actually creates a dystopian world without incentive or hope. We see microcosms of these dystopias in Detroit, Chicago and other liberal cities. It always ends in political absolutism.
Many people see what is coming and it’s what they want. They love the populist ideology of a kook like Bernie Sanders. Spreading the wealth, eliminating income inequality, rights for all classes and races sounds great but the results are always the opposite. The Democratic Party denies what they’ve become but one only has to look at what they do, not what they say, to see the truth.
One thing is for certain, we are racing towards some form of statism and we could run out of time.
