Where did all the liberals go?

Published

on

From the extreme left of the political spectrum to center, you have communists, socialists, progressives, liberals, and moderates. Hillary Clinton has long identified as a progressive, Bernie obviously popularized modern socialism in America, and we have the increasing presence of anarchist communists in the form of Antifa. But where did all the liberals go?

Ben Shapiro has often distinguished between liberals and the Left. Liberals support big government, but within the republican process and with respect for natural rights such as free speech. They push for the gradual expansion of government, but they do so civilly, with intellectual debate and discourse.

The Left, on the other hand, subscribes to victory by any means necessary, ultimately endorsing fascistic violence and totalitarianism. They refuse to debate and in fact equate counter-arguments with actual violence, meaning they view their escalated actions as justified self-defense.

Such physical assault has recently come almost entirely from the Left, albeit from far-left fascist communists like Antifa. But while Antifa consists of violent extremists, is the group’s philosophy (and subsequent methodology) really that radical?

If it is, no one on the Left seems to feel the need to say so.

In fact, following Antifa’s attacks against right-wing protesters in Berkeley on Sunday, many left-wing leaders have defended the fascist group and justified its violence.

It’s easy to denounce the KKK, Nazism, and white supremacy. They’re evil scum. It’s that simple — no skinhead off my nose. So why can’t the Left do the same about Antifa? Because they actually support it.

The right-wing group at the heart of Sunday’s protest was Patriot Prayer, which has expressly condemned racism, white supremacy, and violence, specifically forbidding white supremacists from participating in their free speech rally. They don’t even have ties to the Alt-Right as far as we know. Predictably, that didn’t stop Leftists from lumping them in with neo-Nazis and Confederates in order to rationalize Antifa’s response.

Nancy Pelosi labeled the event “white supremacist” and an “Alt-Right demonstration.” Counter-protest organizers excused and even praised Antifa, including one pastor who said,“We have no regrets for how they left our city. We do not want white supremacists in our city. We do not want neo Nazis in our city. We do not want the alt right in our city.”

Another organizer agreed: “Our experience on the streets was that we were defended by people who came — as anti-fascists — to do that.”

Our pastor friend concluded, “Why is Antifa all of a sudden becoming labeled as the most violent element when they were literally here with a buffer between those who were here to harm us?”

I don’t know, maybe because only one group at that rally was clobbering peaceful demonstrators and innocent reporters with signs that read “No More Hate”?

While quick to condemn the abhorrent murder in Charlottesville, the Democrats on the United States Commission on Civil Rights refused to issue a similar rebuke against Antifa’s violent tactics.

And finally, instead of insisting his chief of police rescind the department’s repeated stand-down orders, Berkeley’s mayor now suggests that next month’s “Free Speech Week” be cancelled — which would probably go about as well as Baltimore’s “Don’t Kill Anybody” weekend anyway.

A few months ago, I wrote that the Democrat Party has been plotting for years to reveal itself as the haven for socialists, communists, and all kinds of gross Lefty radicals. Their embrace of Antifa is a partial fulfillment of that prediction, and it’s only going to get worse. Antifa is no longer extreme; it is mainstream Democrat.

That brings me back to my initial point: where are the honest, decent, intellectual, virtuous, peaceful liberals? Do they exist in any significant numbers? Someone who’s willing to defy the Democrat Party and speak out for free speech and peaceful assembly, for respect for the Constitution and our nation’s republican system? Dave Rubin is looking pretty lonely right about now.

Liberals, I disagree with you completely, but we need you. This country needs you because it needs sensible debate. If you won’t separate yourselves from the modern Left, then we’ll never find common ground; one side will inevitably obliterate the other.

I don’t want that. This country did it once before, and it was likewise split along party lines. Let’s not repeat history.

Sensible liberals, if you still exist, make your voices heard.

Unicorns are everywhere

Unicorns are everywhere

Have you noticed a sharp rise in the quantity and diversity of unicorn products? The mythical beasts seem to be popping up pretty much everywhere from cereal to bubble bath. There’s now unicorn “duck tape.”

It isn’t just products for kids. Many adult items like alcohol , adult costumes, and Starbucks flavors are popping up with unicorn symbolism. It’s even getting into the Christmas business with holiday decorations featuring unicorns. When did unicorns become a Christmas symbol to hang from the tree?

It’s freaky.

Next time you go out shopping at the mall, Walmart, or pretty much any department store, take a look and see if you notice unicorn symbolism.

According to Truthstream Media, the unicorn is a symbol used by the occult to represent transformation, fertility, sexuality, and androgyny. Much of the symbolism can be traced back to everyone’s favorite conspiracy theory targets, the Illuminati. Some believe the unicorn contains antichrist symbolism.

When a mythical creature is supposed to represent uniqueness and it seems to be present everywhere, doesn’t that run counter to its own message? As conspiracy theories go, this one is as magical as it gets. Much like unicorns themselves.

The truth about Thanksgiving

The truth about Thanksfiving

Thanksgiving for many of us has been presented as a time when diversity worked. When a group of people who came seeking refuge from religious persecution was saved by another group of people. A time when different cultures could come together and share what they had to offer one another, culminating in a feast consisting of corn and turkey that was made to honor that moment.

Sadly, the most recent depiction of this pivotal moment in our history has been turned into an American horror story. A story that depicts white Europeans who came to wipe out all the innocent natives by disease and war. The evil white man brought with them more evil white men who only wanted to destroy and kill, to take land that didn’t belong to them and annihilate anyone who wasn’t white. Because that’s all white people want.

Neither of these versions are remotely true.

The Pilgrims were not fleeing from persecution. Nor did they spread disease or kill an entire village of Native Americans. They simply came to a new world filled with the hope of freedom – freedom to live by the values and principles as defined by the word of God. They came to the new world to give their families that chance rather than being overtaken by a society they felt did not reflect those values. It was so important to them that they risked their lives and the lives of their children to make the voyage. A voyage that landed them far from where they were expecting.

After arriving to the new world it was clear that God had a plan. The circumstances which led up to the first thanksgiving – for both the Europeans and the Native American that helped them – could only be explained by divine providence.

Despite being told this is a time to apologize or to be shameful for our history as a nation, the truth is Thanksgiving should be the most important and revered time for all Americans. A time of remembrance of God’s grace and divine providence for a group of people that risked everything to honor Him, including a Native American by the name of Squanto.

The diversity of God’s grace is what we, Americans, should be celebrating. Not multiculturalism.

Marco Rubio whips out Bible verse that goes after the Florida recount debacle

There are two prevailing opinions pertaining to the Florida election and subsequent recounts. Democrats generally feel like it’s good to “count every ballot” until they win, even if that means “finding” more ballots to add to their candidates’ tallies. Republicans have been fighting against the recounts despite that play coming across ingenuously to voters on both sides.

We should want every valid vote counted. The operative word there is “valid.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a Catholic, Tweeted a Bible verse that seemed apropos to the current debacle in Florida.

One might even say this draws in one of the favorite punching bags for Republicans, former presidential candidate “Crooked” Hillary Clinton. That wasn’t the intent, I’m sure, but it’s always fun to laugh at Hillary.
