If you’re expecting this to be another “gotcha” list of examples of leftists owning multiple homes that are surrounded by walls and protected by men with guns, you’ll be disappointed. Those articles are everywhere and they seem to have no effect in shaming the left or educating the masses. Instead, let’s stipulate that this is the case and address the real issue: the reasons they call for measures with no intention of turning those measures against themselves.
Yesterday, I was having a nice chat with my son about the Venezuela situation. We agree that armed conflict with Venezuela should be off the table because as a sovereign nation that is not attacking us, their need for aid does not warrant that aid being forced upon them even though their leader is being obtuse. The very notion of “invading” Venezuela in any way is the type of interventionist strategies that should be long buried in our neo-conservative past.
He wondered why there had been no real uprising. If the protests over the last three years haven’t been working, then it’s time for the people to rise up and revolt, right? Aye, there’s the rub. How can a people who have lived under socialism for nearly two decades get together and use their numbers to revolt against President Nicolás Maduro and the military he controls? The answer: They can’t. It would be nearly impossible for them to do so on their own. If there’s a charismatic leader, perhaps Juan Guaidó, who is able to wrest away some control over the military, then revolution is possible. But if he nor anyone else can do that, then even if a majority of the 30 million or so oppressed Venezuelans rose up against the regime, they’d have a very difficult time getting any traction against the military.
They have no guns. They have no food. They have no resources. All they have is the socialistic ideas that have been carved into their minds for the past two decades.
That’s the point of nearly everything the political left in America is doing lately. Their hypocrisy regarding wealth, walls, and guns isn’t new, but the full-court press many of them are using to generate support for their ideas through lies, propaganda, and lunacy is new in America. It’s not new in Venezuela, a nation that had corrupt leaders but was still functional through their capitalistic days before the the turn of the century. Now, they have no recourse. Their protests are ineffective. At this point they require international intervention and it’s unlikely that will happen. Why? Because the Maduro government is going to get propped up by Russia, China, and others who would like to see him retain power.
This isn’t about Venezuela, though. This is about America. We’re seeing the seeds of socialism, restrictions on freedoms, and consolidation of power in Washington DC happening every day. My biggest disappointment in the Trump administration has been the continuously increasing budgets and power. Yes, they cut taxes and sliced through a good amount of bureaucracy, but they didn’t cut expenses nor did they start returning power to states and individuals. Instead, they’ve increased spending, drawn in more power, and set up the next Democratic regime to expand on the trends they and previous administrations have set.
The hyper-leftists have seen the writing on the wall and realize now is the time to strike. In President Trump, they see a partial foil to their ideology, one wrapped in enough unpopularity from the left that if they can sell their ideas to the folks in the middle, they feel they can initiate the fundamental change in America they once hoped would be brought about by President Obama. He only partially delivered, but the strides he made for their cause was enough to form the building blocks for their new radically progressive foundation.
Their goals are not to super-tax the wealthy, prevent the wall from being built, or take away our guns. Those are only portions of their true goal of subjugating Americans under complete government control. In each of these three focus points they see a threat to their end goal. The wealthy are able to keep Americans employed without government intervention. The wall is a symbol of sovereignty that counters their desire for open borders, which keep a flow of dependent people coming into America. As for guns, they represent the recourse of patriotic Americans should the government become the oppressive entity the founding fathers feared.
It’s important for every conscientious American to recognize what the hyper-leftists really want. Their sales pitch is a good one on the surface, just like previous ideologies that swept through and destroyed countries like Venezuela. It sounds nice to many Americans that they will be taken care of, free to play Fortnite or watch Netflix instead of slaving away at their 9-5. It sounds wonderful to the those buried in student loans or medical bills. Their sale pitch of taking from the rich, keeping the borders open, and removing guns from everyone other than law enforcement and the elite is one that might not sound exactly right to many Americans, but if the get “free” stuff in exchange, maybe it’s worth it to them.
The left is selling the dream of mediocrity to a generation that has been taught to take its nation’s greatness for granted.
In truth, the left is very tight with THEIR wealth. They love the walls that protect THEIR property. They arm THEIR guards with more than rolled up newspapers. The left isn’t about taking all wealth, stopping all walls, or confiscating all guns. Just yours and mine.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our brand new GiveSendGo page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
