This piece featured on Rush Limbaugh yesterday, by Daniel Greenfield, makes more sense about the state of union, the state of politics and the state of mind of 98% of the Dopes who populate the Demo-Dope party than anything I’ve run across.
Greenfield claims that we are already engaged in a great civil war, that Demo-Dope’s refusal to accept the results of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans and their refusal to accept the results of that last two midterm elections that resulted in their loss of control of the House and the Senate to Republican is tantamount to a civil war fought politically without guns and cannons.
Here the golden nugget from the article:
“There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that’s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it’s treason.”
This is cool because Lex has often opined that even if the Dopes are treasonous bastards in their hearts, their actions are no different from those who are. The Dopes are trying to destroy America. Here’s a bit of the proof.
One, while Republicans went along and confirmed America's Chief Spy Man and President - Obama’s - Supreme Court Nominations. Dopes will blow up the Senate in a ridiculous effort to stop Neil Gorsuch from taking a seat on the Supreme Court. Fine. Who cares? If they literally blew the senate up, we’d be getting somewhere? But this just what Greenfield is describing in his article. The Dopes never accept anything.
Two, and much more dangerous to the republic, is the Dope insistence on defying the law with regard to immigration. Having retreated to their “urban enclaves” Dopes are setting up their own rules for enforcing federal immigration law – i.e. sanctuary cities. The entire state of California is threatening to be become a sanctuary state – which it already is but without the formal declaration. How is that going to play out when DoJ withholds federal funds to an entire state? Will the state then encourage residents to refuse to file federal taxes? Will they flaunt tax law in the same manner as immigration law?
Three, civil discourse is dead. The left has become so unhinged that, just like the Islamo-Terror-Fascists, everyone and anyone who dare disagree with them so much as an iota on any issue is immediately labeled a Hitler-like racist, homophobic, misogynist, white-supremist, nationalist, knuckle dragging pig. Turn on any cable news show and wait for the 30 seconds it takes for the shout fest to begin. Unwatchable. So I turned 80% of it off now.
Four, the Dopes are openly calling for resistance. Often that resistance takes the form of violent protests a la Berkeley. As the one sided violence has grown, some on the right have taken to defending themselves creating large public street brawls. Many on the left admit that their goal in the resistance is to make America ungovernable. Which is fine, because if they’d stop trying to govern us so much we’d be a whole lot more governable. But that’s not what the Left means. They mean anarchy in the streets.
While Greenfield starts his article by saying that this civil war is political and is currently being conducted sans the cannon and cavalry of the Civil War, can anyone look at the unhinged state of the Left’s assault on America and its reaction to PDJT, and state for certain that they won’t soon begin to advocate, justify and excuse armed resistance?
I don’t know. If the left is willing to weaponize every arm of the federal government – IRS, CIA, NSA, FBI, DoJ, EPA - to attack conservative, drain their bank accounts, ruin their businesses, put them in jail, why would they be opposed to shots being fired?
