Listening to Mark Levin’s show on MLK Day 2018, he is concerned that we as conservatives have not made a good case for conservativism. We truly took conservativism for granted, and yet collectively we can’t explain it. It seems that so-called liberalism is on the rise according to a recent Gallup poll.
Those who are supposed to be the voices of conservatives are not. The common conservative may be leaning towards the Republican Party, but the party doesn’t advance a conservative cause. The Republicans would rather make a deal and go along to get along with the Democrat Party. The committed conservative and/or Federalist is told they have a home with the Republican party and that need to stand by them. They are just useful idiots for the GOP masterminds as they prefer to support a progressive-lite or crony capitalist agenda and either call that conservatism or claim that conservatism is dead. Some conservatives/Federalists would rather be politically homeless than being a tool for a useless political party. The cultishly loyal GOP voter may look at them with scorn but I will not.
The Democrats at least are advancing a progressive agenda, and those who call themselves progressives are registered with the Democratic Party. The committed progressive does indeed have a home with the Democrats.
There are two reasons the Democratic Party is growing: the mass immigration since the immigration reform spearheaded by Ted Kennedy in the mid-1960’s, and our educational institutions. I will not point out the statistics. You can read those stats in the link presented at the very end of this piece.
Too many immigrants come from third world countries in which they have no idea of how life is like in a society that embraces liberty and freedom. President Trump has a point about their places being —-holes. The Democrats know that these people have been pampered (or not really) by socialism. Thus they want to bring them here and give them citizenship so they will be the guaranteed lever pullers for the Democratic Party and gain more power, and make the world a better place for socialism. For these useful idiots, socialism is all they know. Eventually, it will be America that joins the —-holes, while the Democrats reap the rewards as they finally get to become like their idols (Castro, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Nero, even Hitler etc etc).
Education is also the other component that is helping progressive leftism gain in popularity. Humanist and progressive activist John Dunphy knew this well.
“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. Their teachers must embody the same selfless dedication of the most rabid fundamentalist preacher, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level — preschool, daycare, or large state university.”
This statement was written by Dunphy back in 1983, and this was the war cry to public school teachers that were in agreement with him. Today that very public school classroom (and colleges & universities) convinced many millennials to not only become humanists but really progressives; politically, culturally and religiously. Another humanist activist Charles Frances Potter back in the 1960’s stated; “Education is thus a most power ally of humanism, and every public school is a school of humanism. What can the theistic Sunday school, meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five-day program of humanistic teachings?”
I might add that every public school (coupled with higher learning) is also a school of progressive leftist statism.
If you have followed Steve Deace’s “Seven Deadly Worldviews” series on his CRTV.com program you know that secular humanism is the icing on the cake for all the worldviews that make the legs holding the progressive ideology up. More from Dumphy (many years later after Pat Buchanan’s speech at the 1992 Republican National Convention).
“While the struggle is certainly quite complex and multifaceted, I continue, a significant aspect of it is comprised of the conflict between the totalitarian Christianity of the Radical Right and the force of humanism. And then I add, ‘But here’s something that Mr. Buchanan neglected to mention in his address: humanism is going to win.”
Right now it seems that not only humanism is going to win, but also progressive Marxist statism that complements humanism as one of its pillars. Even George Barna points out the millennials are not as pro-life that we thought they were, and I am not shocked by that statement. It is no surprise when you have the likes of Planned Parenthood (and access to our public schools) teaching them loose sexual morals and that women have a right over their bodies including the right to kill a baby that they did not want to have. But they sugar coat the language and call it abortion or termination of a pregnancy.
Why can’t Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell explain what republicanism is (small r) or what free market capitalism is? Nevermind federalism? I feel your pain Levin, and the truth of the matter is regarding Mitch & Ryan… all they care about is themselves and their own families. They are also more concerned about what the progressive mainstream media says about them, and I wonder why? They are the cancer of progressivism and they are going to push that ideology no matter what. If progressiveism loses then they will attack those that oppose it. If progressiveism fails society, then if it will be called the new normal, rather than admit that it’s a failure. Progressiveism can’t do any wrong. It’s the future. It has to be if you’re on top of the food chain wanting to take and maintain control.
We conservatives and federalists who believe in liberty and freedom and limited government, we are on our own. It will take the likes of NOQ Report and other like-minded outlets and figures that are will the learn, understand and fight for America’s founding principles. I think we have been asleep at the wheel and it is time for us to do our own fighting. It will be a team effort, and its the fight we have been called to step up to. Are you in?
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Continuing a quarter-century trend, the term “liberal” continues to catch up with “conservative” as Americans’ preferred description of their political views. Thirty-five percent of U.S. adults in 2017 identified as conservative and 26% as liberal, the first time the conservative label’s edge has been single digits. Its nine-percentage-point edge in 2017 is down from 11 points in 2016 and roughly 20-point advantages at times in the past.
During the past few months I have spoken at some pro-life events as well as several high-level gatherings of national conservative leaders. In each of those meetings I have heard people say that we are in a great era for the pro-life movement, especially because Millennials are highly supportive of life in the womb.
Sadly, it is not true. We are tying our hope to a myth.
On Monday’s Mark Levin show, Last week there was story after story on news outlets that President Trump was mentally ill and demented. Now the media is trying to paint Trump as a racist because of how he talked about Haiti, allegedly calling it an sh*thole. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who were with Trump in the meeting, said Trump didn’t say that word about Haiti. Dick Durbin is lying about it and has lied before but that doesn’t matter because the Democrat Party wants and need this for its base and to get out the votes.
