Sad but true – and far too timely and relevant. When fishing without a license – and let’s not even begin to talk about hunting – is more criminal than being an illegal alien, it’s time to replace the government.
Even worse, when it comes to the federal level of government, i.e., the POTUS and Congress, after what the Dems did in the 2020 elections I can’t even honestly say that replacing the government through normatively accepted means, the ballot box, would even prove effective.
But, when it’s time to replace to replace the government, it’s time. Do with that assertion and counsel what you will.
Ah, the once – and all patriots hope – future January 6th “insurrection.” So much Dráng but so little Stúrm. It was a hope, but it was a wasted one that achieved nothing, mostly because there was no real planning, no real leadership, and no real intent to do anything properly meaningful.
No, despite the Democrats’ witch-hunt and hearings, which didn’t rise out of the swamp enough to even qualify as kangaroo court, this was no insurrection. It wasn’t even as well-organized, well-funded, or well-armed as the Dems’ and their media’s precious #BlackLivesMatter riots. It was just a small group of justifiably angry patriots foolishly venting their anger – at least upon the right people – without much thought at all.
So, our first January 6th came to naught. But, it’s a new year and who knows what will happen.
When it’s Bernie Freaking Sanders saying something like this, Democrats should listen and take what he’s saying to heart. They won’t though. They crossed the Rubicon back in 2015 and there’s no going back for them. They’ve placed themselves in a position where they either succeed in fundamentally changing the very nature of America or this is the hill they’ll die on.
Then, Congress is full of the sorts who ignored what the January 6th protest and resulting incursion into the Capitol meant. They put up fences; they engaged in a still ongoing kangaroo pseudo-court to persecute President Trump; they are openly attempting to disarm the People. But they’re not asking themselves what they did to bring things to this point. Not one of them – except, apparently, Senator Sanders! 😯 – not even once where we, the People could read or hear it.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty…except, apparently, when that fear is insufficient or the government is too far gone into collective narcissism to understand.
No. Instead, they went directly after the POTUS that they used every means at their disposal – legal, extralegal, and possibly illegal – for four years to forcibly remove from office. In their delusional state and utter denial of their own wrongdoings, they acted as if they believe that one man, President Trump, was such a terrifyingly powerful demagogue that he could actually shape the feelings of the American people.
Hint – Trump isn’t even that great of a speaker, as the Left has pointed out repeatedly. He’s not shaping opinions or policies. He’s a just representation of Americans’ anger.
And these Democrats – and the Republicans who, for whatever reasons, are insufficiently against them – have chosen to “double-down” on things.
Fortunately, it wasn’t the second “Shot Heard ‘Round The World.” The President was not in residence during the raid and the FBI managed not to shoot anyone else while carrying out the Democrats’ orders. That would have sparked some sad hybrid of revolution, civil war, and poorly focused violent insurrection.
Weaponizing the FBI and then being that callously overt in its misuse is bad enough. It was probably the last straw for the DOJ and, by extension, all the federal law enforcement and quasi-law enforcement agencies.
At this point, I’m not sure what’s going to happen beyond Congress and their Alphabet Bois and Gurls either not developing self-awareness or realizing that they’ve already gone too far and can’t back down now. What it’s going to look like and exactly when it going to go down is beyond my ken.
But I’m pretty sure that this is the hill they’re going to die on, or it’s going to be the hill that America dies on… or both, as is more likely.
I can’t say that America is suffering from and through its worst generation gap. That would, IMHO, be the cap in outlook, beliefs, and patriotism between the Silent Generation and the Baby Boomers (Hippies). I can say, however, that the gap between the Millennials (Gen Y) and a significant subset of Generation Z and all former generations of Americans is both disgusting and profound.
But yeah! Greta Thunberg’s generation is going to start a revolution? Not very likely unless it can function and make an impact via social media and #Hashtaggery alone. :LOL:
Ah yes, in the minds of America’s domestic enemies we a the deplorables, as Hillary suitably and dutifully labeled us. Perhaps though, Hillary and those she supposedly represents should have better studied history and what can happen when the deplorables have had enough. After all, 222 years and 1 continent shouldn’t be too far for them to look.
Perhaps they need a reminder that the Girondins failed and that a Jacobinian solution is not something that we oh-so-deplorable churls automatically balk at. Perhaps it’s time for Americans to put the ways of Brissot behind us and adopt those of Robespierre.
