We have often wondered if a new civil war would ever break out. If leftists would ever take to arms to defend their ideology, or if they would be too cowardly as many of us have surmised. Well make no mistake about it folks, we are at war with a new, hyper radicalized Democrat Party aided and abetted by the Progressive Media. The Democrats, spurred on by their media masters, have done a political 180 over the last 20 years and now openly advocate anti American views, and actively support policies that are completely destructive to our society and way of life. Consider that every single Democrat voted against a tax break for the average American worker; they have opposed all efforts to secure our borders; the defy Federal immigration laws; they obstruct Federal law enforcement, they encourage and financially enrich our foreign enemies; they impose punitive regulations on our domestic business’s, they actively work towards destroying our energy independence; they defer to the World courts rather than our own judiciary; they actively promote domestic policies that disadvantage American citizens; and they harbor deep contempt for anyone who challenges their world views. In other words, they are in the process of trying to demoralize and completely destroy traditional America, and we had all better wake up and realize this very sobering fact. Sowing discord? The Russians are amateurs compared to our progressive media.

If leftists would ever take to arms to
defendadvance their ideology,
I’ve not heard this analogy, but what we’re engaged in is actually akin to a cultural Cold War, which, in my view, is much preferable to a cultural “hot” war. America won the Cold War because we had both superior military might AND superior ideology. Our ideology had produced over the course of less than two centuries a model of economic and individual freedom that the world had never seen before. Such is the state of our conflict with the modern Left, and we will win for the same reasons. They are essentially advancing the Soviet model trying to convince an ever diminishing army of useful idiots that this time will be different because this time the really good people are in charge. It appeared a year or so ago that they might be on the verge of starting a violent revolution. I’m not sure if those pulling the strings realized their useful idiots weren’t equipped to pull off a violent overthrow, or exactly what happened, but about 30-60 days into Trump’s presidency the movement just disappeared. They had a narrow window of opportunity that has come and gone. The majority of Americans are pretty sure Trump is NOT Hitler, and that, by virtually every metric, things are better and continuing to improve.
I admit that the American Left has become a lot noisier, and to hear the howling and moaning one might think it has also gotten a lot bigger. The second assumption is the one I want to know about.
I am not particularly worried about Lefties admitting to admiration of Stalin—the facts are out there, and can’t be denied. The only possible justification for supporting or advocating a Stalinesque kind of government would be that the idea itself was good, they just didn’t go far enough in implementing it (a bad argument as the rejoinder would be if 20 million dead and an economy in ruins wasn’t far enough, how far would they suggest we go) or that the only problem was that in Russia they foolishly put the wrong guy in charge when they handed over control of their lives to an all-powerful Central Authority and we’d be putting good people in charge.
That second argument is open to a lot of responses, ranging from the fact that the Russians who weren’t being systematically starved under Lenin and Stalin thought they were pretty good guys so the perception of who is a “good guy” lies in the eyes of the perceiver, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, and the question about how control could be taken away from someone if he or she turned out to be a bad guy after all. Once a tyrant controls the media, the schools, the military and the treasury, and can control the ballot box, there really is no way to resume control without an armed revolution—-or, in the case of post-Stalinist Russia, waiting till the fatally flawed system collapses under its own weight, after decades of misery and oppression and corruption.
Millions of American Lefties over the years have admired people like Lenin, Stalin, Castro, Mao, and Chavez, only to have the clearer lens of history show them to be vicious, violent, murdering monsters grinding their people under their boot heels and reducing their countries to impoverished prisons.
There is a belief that a political system can control and manage an economic system, and this has been at the heart of support for totalitarian governments—–people who resent the Haves and believe that the “right” kind of government will shift what they have to the Have Nots, will “level” that mythical playing field and somehow ensure that everyone gets the same stuff. This is based on the assumption that there will somehow magically be enough stuff for everyone to have a lot of it. The affluent or at least very comfortable believe that the “right” kind of government will raise everyone to their level and the less-affluent think the “right” kind of government will take away what the affluents have and redistribute it to the deserving poor. Who are deserving, by the way, only because they don’t have stuff, not because they are good or kind or hard working or selfless or by any other metric deserving of anything.
The two levels of support for a Central Authority powerful-state government are power and stuff. Those who expect to be at the top of the pyramid do so for power. The support for this kind of government is based on a belief in how much stuff people will get and how it will be distributed.
And right on cue — more bad news for Democrats.
And once again we are reminded that what is good for the country is bad for the Left
Kinda makes you wonder how they even continue to exist.
So in light of all the good news today – 300,000+ jobs, consumer confidence, and North Korea. I took a minute and switched over to MSNBC to see what’s going on only to see Nicole Wallace breathlessly detailing the Stormy Daniels/Mueller investigation.
It’s UN F***ING BELIEVABLE. Remember when it was just SEX? Remember Moveon.org? – that entire liberal movement was created out of Bill’s indiscretions while IN THE WHITE HOUSE. Trump’s alleged affair happened years ago, but that won’t shame them at all. They are happily hypocritical …………
Also, Nicole Wallace was one of John McCain’s top strategist, and it’s very hard for me to believe that anyone who spends just 5 minutes with her, would hire to do anything ….. she is a complete moron. Almost embarrassingly so.
It was actually pathetically humorous. As first some on CNN and even MSNBC were admitting that, if Trump’s meeting with Kim Jung Un turned out to be successful, Trump would go down as a great President. Then all the Leftist network puppets got a memo from Media Matters with the proper script, and turned a bit of good news into a Trump bashfest.
Part of me wishes they really WOULD start a revolution.
Oh me too …… they have become insufferable and completely out of tune with who Americans really are.
I don’t think they will.
I think the left knows they control the future. They are just waiting for time to take its course. Like wolves waiting on a weak, diseased moose to succumb to its injuries.
More and more young people are coming of voting age, and they have been well versed in the ways of communism.
I may be wrong, I may not know that much, but I do know they control education.
“Children are the future”
I’m not as glum as you are, Jeremiah, about the future. Yes, our young people are being brainwashed by the Left and its death grip on public education. But at the same time more and more families are pulling their children out of the indoctrination mills of the Left.
And the thing about Conservatism is that it is based on truth and reality, while Leftism is based on lies and fantasy. Lies and fantasy have their appeal, and there is a strong attraction in Magical Thinking, in which if someone just does a special “something”—wish on a falling star, redistribute enough wealth, force enough people into rigid and artificial ways of thinking and being—-then everything will be just peachy. Life tends to bump up against Magical Thinking, not always but often enough to make a lot of people realize that liberty is important, self-governance is important, personal responsibility is important.
Look at the swing in attitude toward abortion. The Left and its stranglehold on most of the media have managed to keep the changing attitudes out of the headlines, but in spite of the marches and screeching and hysteria the pendulum is swinging back toward humanity. I see a lot of young people in church, and that is in the Catholic Church, which one would not expect to have such an attraction to young people. That is, young people alone or with peers, not just with their families. CPAC has been attracting more and more young people every year, who want to learn about and talk about conservatism.
And we have the examples all around us, all around the world, of the failures of Leftist governance. Back in the 30s people depended on the big papers like the New York Times to tell them what was the “truth” and they were lied to. Now we have other media, and some of them are challenging the Complicit Agenda Media. Now we have public awareness of the way the NYT lied to Americans about Stalin and his purposeful starvation of millions, and the concept of Fake News is not new any more—-people are starting to realize that a lot of what they have been told has not been true. No one can lie to us about Venezuela the way the NYT lied to us about Russia.
Cheer up and have faith….. i think things are looking better than they have for a long time.
Just heard Greg Gutfield say that with Trump – “America is now the crazy, unpredictable one on the block and that’s a good thing”. And indeed it is. Since Reagan left office, our foreign policy has been very predictable, soft and easy to take advantage of, and a lot of countries have. Well now countries like NK have to think – “holy sh*t, this guy might actually nuke me” – love it
There is a gigantic disconnect between Progressives and reality. It is really quite startling. With the caveat that maybe I’m living in a dream world and what I think true will soon by shattered: I think they just don’t see things as we do.
I don’t see the hatred of Trump. I don’t see the worry that Trump is a tyrant or a fool. Things are going along pretty well. Trump may be a loud mouth…but you elect a New Yorker, you kind of expect that. Other than that, he’s governing as a fairly conventional right-of-center Republican President. Perhaps shoved a bit more right than usual by the insane antics of the left, but not anywhere near what we’d call a true blue Conservative. There’s also this difference: he really does fight. He doesn’t mind mixing it up and he seems immune to the slings and arrows of his critics (this aspect of leadership is often overlooked but it is crucial…there is nothing more pathetic than a leader who frets over what other’s think of him. It was Nixon’s downfall, for instance. But other than that, there’s really nothing “out there” about what Trump is doing…but our Progressives are acting like it is the end of the world…and I’m starting to think this isn’t just political rhetoric: they really believe it is the end of the world.
Trouble is: what will they do when the world fails to end?
With any luck they’ll self-destruct.
One thing I have noticed is that Leftists depend heavily on recruiting newcomers to the movement, as so many see the light and, if not moving all the way to the Right, keep an arm’s length away from the radicals and the activists, while most conservatives—if their conservatism is political and not Identity Politics—remain so for their entire lives.
So in a way, Progressives do self-destruct. The elites, like Obama, protected from reality by the bubble of their status and fueled by their hatred and anger, may never fall apart, but the man in the street who has experienced Leftist governance usually comes to distrust it if not actively turn against it, because it has proved to be illiberal, oppressive, limiting and unproductive.
I think it is because political conservatism is based on objective analysis of objective facts, while Liberalism is based on a wish list of how some people wish the world could be and the mistaken belief that a government, if given enough power and money, can make it so. The objective facts underlying political conservatism are the reality of human nature, the reality of markets and the history of the American Constitutional model vs any Leftist model in any country in any time.
We have commented here on the lack of happy people on the Left. It simply does not appeal to happy people. It is a magnet for the angry, the hateful, the disappointed, the lazy, the resentful, the bitter. If I were to have a party and invite 20 Conservatives and 20 Progressives I could count on the Conservatives talking and laughing and having a good time and the Progressives huddling together muttering about how awful the Conservatives are. That simple dichotomy is a recipe for self-destruction on the Left. It is a joyless movement.
I know. I’ve been on both sides of the fence, and it is much sunnier on this side.

This post on Blogs for Victory expresses the frustration felt by real American Patriots who have zero interest of a Leftist transformation of American culture. I am one. Are you? If you feel the frustration, then vent it in the comment section. Keep in mind, if your venting is awesome, it will be cross posted on my blogs.
