Red Herring Argument: The KKK Agrees With You

Published

on

A common tactic of the left is to highlight the worst extremists and compare them to regular conservatives. Murderers, rapists, violent racists; no one is too heinous to dredge up the comparisons. The left is getting sneakier about it too. The MSM stopped using the word terrorist recently, now referring to them as “extremists,” for two reasons. The first is in order to make terrorists look less evil, since they want to make the right’s opposition to terrorism look like racism, and the second reason is in order to lump the right in more easily with terrorists by also referring to people on the right as extremists. It’s a pretty ambitious plan, labeling people who denounce someone else with the same moniker, but so far no one seems to notice or call them out.  

 

It’s a clever tactic to lump regular conservatives in with the worst people in society, because studies show this kind of association works to convince some people. But it’s a lie. Evil people happen to share views with standard ideologies because they are mentally ill, not because they passionately believe in principles like freedom. In most of the mass shooting incidents in the U.S., the shooter had almost no significant political ideology. A handful leaned to the left and almost none to the right. If the left wants to continue digging down this hole, people who bother to read past their biased articles on the surface are going to discover the limited correlation points to their side.

The left lumped conservatives in with racists for years, so much that no one blinked an eye when real extremists organized a rally to save Confederate monuments and called it “Unite the Right.” It wasn’t uniting the right; most conservatives don’t have strong opinions about preserving Confederate monuments, they were a pet project of Southern Democrats. Of course, there were probably some regular conservatives who were fooled and attended, thinking it was just some patriotic rally. The man who drove his car into the rally, killing protester Heather Heyer, has a terrible background, including threatening his mother with violence multiple times. She called the police on him and he was held in juvenile detention at least once. His high school teacher said he was “deeply into Adolf Hitler and white supremacy.” 

 

The left frequently mentions that former President Donald Trump said about the rally, “You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.” However, they deliberately leave off the rest of his comments, where he clearly denounced the “neo-Nazis and white supremacists” and said “they should be condemned totally.” And they never mention that his girlfriend before Melania was black, and she has spoken up since then saying he is not a racist. 

 

But even that’s not enough for them. They now turn things like that around on conservatives, and say “You can still be a racist even though you’re dating a black person,” or “they’re culturally appropriating.” You can be the least racist person in the world and they will say that’s evidence you’re a racist.

 

The only thing the left can point to that is supposedly a correlation between the right and the KKK is the right believes in freedom, so the KKK thinks it can get away with racism better. While the right believes in freedom of speech, unlike the left with its incessant censorship and cancel culture, it’s a far cry from thinking racism is acceptable. 

 

The right believes that people are equal and colorblind, what Martin Luther King Jr. fought for — which the left now incredibly attacks. Christians, who comprise a large percentage on the right, are some of the strongest denouncers of racism. Paul’s letter to the Galatians states, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” The left can’t even point to anything racist in the Bible because it doesn’t exist. Neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members are usually atheists. Bruce Walker at The American Thinker compiled a long list of evidence showing how the Nazis attacked Christians, including arresting them.  

 

The Ku Klux Klan was full of prominent Democrats, too many to list here. The Republican Party supported emancipation, so despite Democrats’ efforts to whitewash history, it doesn’t make any sense that Republicans today would decide now to become racist after everything they’ve achieved ending slavery.

 

The left’s strategy here is really simple: Label everything horrible as far right, no matter how different or strange the ideology. They haven’t yet started labeling communism far right, but that’s only because it’s too close to their own political views — they’re headed in that direction, and they still naively think it’s possible. But there are signs it is coming, look at how the left and their comrades in the MSM so eagerly jumped on permanently adopting the color blue for the Democrats in 2000, instead of reverting back and forth alternating red and blue with the Republicans as they had for years during presidential elections. This is because they don’t want the association with red communism. 

If a KKK member likes licorice and you like licorice, does that make you an evil person for liking licorice? People have all kinds of different preferences, we are all wired differently. What do the Democrats have to say about KKK Grand Dragon Will Quigg endorsing Hillary Clinton for president in 2016? There are plenty more examples like that. Until the Democrats can explain that away, they have no business condemning Republicans who find themselves with a few horrible supporters. Especially since Democrats deliberately set up anonymous social media accounts pretending to be Republicans which spew hate and racism. They are so desperate to get people to believe their lie, unable to back it up with facts, they resort to creating fake people.

A Declaration of War, Long in the Making

Leftist factions within the U.S. would like to bring it down and burn the entire country to the ground

Published

on

With all that’s going on in America right now, it would be easy for those of us who love this country to throw up our hands in despair. There is another way, however, to view what is happening.

Unquestionably, the nationwide protest following the 2020 tragedy in Minneapolis spiraled out of control and become something else. It was not spontaneous, however, it was crafted. In city after city, organized campaigns to commit violence in the guise of protesting police brutality, required weeks, if not months, of planning.

Three Distinct Groups

Those in the streets represent three different groups. First were peaceful, lawful protesters who had a legal right to march. Second were violent anarchist types, mainly composed of Leftists seeking to foment violence in American cities. We’ll come back to this group in a moment.

Third were your neighborhood looters, not necessarily organized, but those who actually enjoy smashing in storefronts and taking whatever expensive goods that they can, when the opportunity arises. These garden variety-type looters, while harmful to America, are not on the same plane as the committed anarchists.

The war that Leftists have chosen to wage on America has been brewing for many decades, and only coming to a head in the 21st century. Rather than lament the sad state of affairs, we can view what is unfolding in a different light.

Exposed Their True Agenda

Those perpetrating violence, theft, and destruction of property have thoroughly exposed themselves and their aims for everyone to see. The cat is completely out of the bag. There can be no mistake that such factions within the U.S. would like to bring it down and burn the entire country to the ground. Concurrently, the Biden administration will do nothing to vanquish Leftist marauders.

The planning and effort last year needed to perpetrate such mayhem costs multi-millions of dollars. Think of it, across the U.S. all of the trucks required where bricks were carefully collected, transported, unloaded, and assembled in neat piles. Such efforts took considerable planning. As seen in Kansas City, Dallas, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and countless other cities, those days represented a looter’s paradise.

The rioters, piggybacking off of the peaceful protesters, and the looters that they knew would be forthcoming, have an intricate network in place. And, mind you, this will not be their last major show. They know the press will cover for them and they know Biden will do nothing. They’re waiting for the opportunity to unload on our nation, or they will ‘create’ the ‘opportunity.’

The Commitment to Win

Today, at the least, anyone with functioning cognitive capability can understand that unless municipalities commit to arresting the ringleaders of such violence and publicly prosecuting them, local government unwittingly indicates that it’s okay to foment violence, that anarchy works, and that no one in authority will resist.

So, take heed. This revolution has been long in the making. Like it or not, we are at war internally. The war might last years or it might last decades. Regardless of how long it takes, we must resolve to win.

Tucker: What really happened on Jan. 6

What is clear is that once again, this footage reveals the first draft of history was a total lie, an intentional distortion, a mirage created to control you.

Published

Tucker examines the surveillance footage from January 6 and questions why the Biden administration was so adamant that we not be allowed to see it.

Highlights include:

“’Fifty years on, it seems remarkable how fast the 1971 attack faded from collective memory.’ Oh, but is it remarkable? Maybe not so remarkable. Leftists commit violence and the media covers for them? That’s something most of us are highly familiar with. It’s been happening for a very long time.”

“The point here, the lesson that you should remember, is that the first draft of history very often is a lie, and it’s not an accidental lie, it’s intentional. Partisans understand that history is, among other things, a tool and they can use it to accumulate power. So they lie about something to suit their ends, they keep lying about it, and before long their lies are recorded as truth.”

“Only one person was killed on January 6th, and that person was an unarmed female protester who was shot in the neck without warning by a Capitol Hill police officer who happens to have a publicly documented history of extreme recklessness. The protesters, meanwhile, killed no one, and yet they’re telling you that those protesters were worse than the Imperial Japanese Army that attacked Pearl Harbor.”

“They refused to release thousands of hours of surveillance footage taken from within the Capitol on January 6th. Why wouldn’t they want us to see that? Well, we’re not sure but we know they really didn’t want us to see it. In fact, they went to court to keep that footage under seal.”

“A federal judge just rejected the Biden administration’s strenuous attempt to hide the surveillance footage from January 6th.”

“What is clear is that once again, this footage reveals the first draft of history was a total lie, an intentional distortion, a mirage created to control you.”
