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.

America No More…

Published

on

After watching with over a hundred others the newly released movie, Civil War, I left the theater stunned, and I was not alone. Was it a good movie? Just a deeply unsettling one! Could it really happen? You don’t even want to imagine it! But with Biden’s assault on America continuing and Trump reemerging as the favored GOP candidate, the American division is growing. More and more citizens are getting angrier as their standard of living is in jeopardy and illegals are getting benefits citizens can only dream of.

Spoiling the movie’s plot is never appropriate, but when Western forces from Texas, Florida, and even California take on the elected President, the country is left in a civil war. We watch as desensitized media professionals cover the death of hundreds of American citizens. To the film’s media, the war is just a once-in-a-lifetime story that deserves to be captured one picture at a time. After all, it’s the media’s job. They are just feeding citizens what they want—blood, gore, winners, and victims. What would happen if America descends into such chaos? This movie provides one disturbing view, one that, God help us, must never happen.

One thing is clear, when a country loses trust in its leader’s ability to preserve their cherished freedoms and ensure equal treatment under the law, even insurrection seems somehow possible. That is a nightmare no American should have to entertain, but more and more Americans seem to be losing hope in the future of our country. They don’t trust elections. Many don’t even like the Presidential choices presented to them.

The Founding Fathers valued freedom enough to unleash a revolution against the greatest power at the time. Enough citizens joined them in securing what most at the time believed impossible, independence. Yes, insurrection hatched our beloved America. Belief in equal rights and freedom are powerful forces that have always driven patriotic Americans to action.


Even with our differences, most Americans believe in property rights, voting rights, law enforcement to keep us safe, freedom of speech, and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, more and more Americans feel these values are in question, and they are not sure America can be saved!

Many Americans no longer even believe that elections will produce a lawful winner. They don’t trust the voting machines. They want paper ballots that can be counted. They don’t believe multiple days are needed. Hasn’t one day of voting always been enough? They want required IDs and signed mail-in ballots. They fear ballot harvesting is just another name for ‘manufacturing” all the votes you need to ensure a fraudulent victory. Are American fair elections no more!

Many no longer believe that the enforcement of law is fair and sure. While former President Donald Trump has been charged with multiple “crimes,” President Joe Biden’s similar actions aren’t even charged. Hunter Biden’s influence peddling with money set aside for the “Big Guy” are not even covered in the mainstream media. The Dept. of Justice is quick to charge Trump, but with the Bidens, we hear nothing but crickets. People who commit crimes are being let go instead of being held accountable. Is American law and order no more!

Under President Trump, our border was finally more under control. Under Biden, his open border has been continually flooding our country with illegals from around the world. They come expecting benefits at the expense of taxpaying citizens. Illegals overwhelm services in our urban areas. Legal immigrants had to wait years to enter and are fuming at this invasion of illegals rushing to the front of the line and expecting to be accepted, supported, and allowed to become citizens. Is America’s secure border no more!

We thought in America, your home was your castle. If you work to buy the home of your dreams, you were sure that your property rights were secure in a community that you loved. But today, squatters are taking over vacant homes and fending off owners who want them to leave their property. Illegals are being told to come to America, find an empty home, and move in. In the name of equity, governments are rezoning the suburbs and requiring the building of low-income housing where it is not wanted. Are America’s property rights no more!

Do you believe America is lost? Do you believe nothing can reverse this march to chaos? Do you believe that it is time to buy your own guns to protect your family when the government won’t? Is a civil war coming? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in danger of losing the optimistic attitude that has characterized Americans for two centuries. This is our country. This is not the time for surrender. It’s time to fight to preserve America the best way you can—vote for candidates who promise to preserve the rights you value most.

Your vote does matter. There are no perfect candidates, but the party positions make a difference in this critical election. If you want law and order, secure borders, fair elections, property rights, and a return to personal responsibility, there is only one party to support. Vote for every GOP candidate you are given the opportunity to support, or it may very well be America no more!

Prepare for the Worst: Domestic Sabotage and Violence on the Horizon

The wheels of extremism are already in motion

Published

on

Leading up to this November, and beyond, it now seems inevitable that America will experience extreme turmoil, if not outright hostilities and even urban warfare. Nothing that I write here will have any impact in terms of what is likely to occur. For one, Leftists don’t tend to read articles by conservative and, two, the wheels of extremism are already in motion.

Tactics Without End

I devote at least 500 hours annually to reading about political, historical, and cultural matters, adding up to more than 5,000 hours in the last 10 years. I’ve reached the same conclusion which legions of others have: Domestically the U.S. is headed for huge trouble. We already know many of the Left’s tactics to hinder Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign, which include devious hoaxes, endless lies and slander, bogus lawsuits and selective prosecution, unconstitutional fines, and much more.

As spring leads to summer, Trump’s lead over Biden could grow. As such, expect the Left to act even more desperately with reprehensible tactics. Consider that of late RINO Congressional Representatives are suspiciously retiring early on dates with no chance for a special election to occur in their districts. Hence, Democrats can retake the House. Do you smell payola? Thereafter if Trump is elected, the House could attempt to deny certification.

By June or July, invariably, the Left will seek to foment another “George Floyd” incident and blame it all on Trump. With the power of The New York Times and major networks embellishing the narrative and offering World War II level coverage, the masses will be snowed. Think about Donald Trump observing that if he’s not elected there will be a bloodbath in the auto industry, and how the mainstream media, in unison, immediately claimed that Trump was calling for nationwide violence.

The Left is Violent and Everyone Knows It

The most violent segment of our society happens to be on the Left, as even many casual observers know. If Trump is ahead in the polls in September or October, expect dissension wherever the Left can prevail. When Trump wins the election in November, expect riots in 200 cities or more, surreptitiously funded by George Soros and his kind.

The money will fuel Antifa and other groups of young men and women who do not have career level jobs but do have questionable futures. The riots will last for as long as the extremists can persist; days, weeks, even months. From there, open warfare, in the form of urban snipers, is entirely possible.

Leading up to inauguration on January 20, many key dates such as certification from Congress, approval of Electoral College votes, and so on, represent key opportunities for the Left’s planned disruptions.

Disruption and Sabotage

January 20 could be a day of extreme violence. Washington, DC will have to be put under martial law. National guards from every surrounding state will be employed. The violent Left will not allow Trump to peacefully take over the reins from the corrupt, demented Joe Biden.

Biden’s administration, ruled by Barack Obama, will not offer a smooth transition of power, unlike all other presidents since our nation was founded. This is except for Obama, who did all he could to sabotage first Trump’s administration from the get-go.

The rest of January leading into February will represent days of turmoil. The Left will attempt to disrupt Trump’s second administration 24/7. They will harass and threaten political appointees. They will form roadblocks. They will resort to antics in front of federal buildings, the Supreme Court building, and other targeted locations which they deem to be ‘in their way.’

Eventually, Trump can clean it all up but at enormous financial and social cost. Rioters and less-than-peaceful protestors can be taken off the streets and, this time, held for much more than 24 hours. They can be charged, fingerprinted, photographed, and processed by a now lawful Department of Justice . However, such major operations will result in a lot of pain and gnashing of teeth.

Sadly for our nation, the scenarios above are more likely to be true than not.
