Stressful times bring out everyone’s fundamental principles. Those favoring liberty tend to go in that direction. Those favoring the opposite—control—tend to go further towards a control mentality. This is just a manifestation of the contrast between the political Right and the political Left:
The Right prefers liberty over control.
The Left prefers control over liberty.
We are now seeing this in how the left has reacted to the Chi-Com virus pandemic with a tendency towards asserting more and more control over the people while the right is resisting this authoritarianism. Even more incredible is their reaction to this movement, given their pass pretense of being ‘liberal’.
Leftists would hold their breath if President Trump advocated breathing
The national socialist left has a knee jerk reaction to anything favored by President Trump. They automatically hate it, with ever-changing positions depending on what he has advocated. Thus, we’ve seen them come out against an existing drug that showed great promise in treating COVID-19.
Their newfound resistance to the cause of liberty was overwhelmingly energized when he tweeted that we need to “LIBERATE MINNESOTA!”, “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” and “LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!”
However, it’s not that they are merely coming out in opposition of freedom because of president Trump. They are revealing their long-held beliefs, despite their false labeling as ‘liberal’.
Pro-liberty groups want to protest the left’s authoritarianism—can we survive?
Our first and probably most egregious example hails from the Washington Post with an investigation of how pro-liberty groups [or as they term them ‘pro-gun provocateurs’] actually had the temerity to come out against the heavy-handed approach of some governors in their suppression of individual liberty:
The Facebook groups target Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York, and they appear to be the work of Ben Dorr, the political director of a group called “Minnesota Gun Rights,” and his siblings, Christopher and Aaron. By Sunday, the groups had roughly 200,000 members combined, and they continued to expand quickly, days after President Trump endorsed such protests by suggesting citizens should “liberate” their states.
The Dorr brothers manage a slew of pro-gun groups across a wide range of states, from Iowa to Minnesota to New York, and seek primarily to discredit organizations like the National Rifle Association as being too compromising on gun safety. Minnesota Gun Rights, for instance, describes itself as the state’s “no-compromise gun rights organization.”
It wasn’t long before the many who claim to be liberal decided that even talking about such things are to be verboten.
The term ‘liberate’ has been condemned. Will the word ‘liberty’ be far behind?
Even worse, the national socialist media suddenly decided that liberate means a call to arms:
- In Trump’s ‘LIBERATE’ tweets, extremists see a call to arms
- Trump’s message to ‘liberate’ states dangerous: Washington Gov. Jay Inslee
- Littwin: They’re coming to man the barricades and Trump is cheering them on
Does that mean that we shouldn’t be allowed to use the words liberty and liberal for the same reason?
Washington Post: Trump’s ‘LIBERATE MICHIGAN!’ tweets incite insurrection. That’s illegal.
We’ve saved the most egregious example for last. This one is steeped in hypocrisy given that The Washington ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’ Post would be the first to the barricades if their favorite part of the Bill of Rights and the 1st amendment were threatened.
But when it comes to other people’s essential human rights, any crisis is a good crisis for the suppression of those rights. Not to mention the numerous times they’ve called for gun confiscation or the changing of the Constitution because they have no use for other people’s liberty or their common sense human rights.
- Washington Post Editorial Board Calls on Trump to Pass Gun Control: ‘End This American Carnage’
- Washington Post – Eugene Robinson: Assault weapons must be banned in America
- Washington Post: A gun-free society
Would they have the same attitude if the government suppressed their essential human rights?
The bottom line: Leftists are authoritarians in opposition to liberty
The authoritarian left has always had to rely on deception and lies in order to survive. Their base ideology is predicated on attaining power over everyone else, but they cannot be truthful about this fact of life.
The left has always needed to use false labeling to remain viable, from lauding themselves as being ‘liberal’ to pushing ancient ideas under the guise of being ‘progressive’ or being ‘democratic’ while ignoring what the people truly want.
If anything, we are seeing the authoritarian left for what they truly are: Obsessed with control of every aspect of society. The people were willing to accommodate their petty wishes for a little while, but that time is up. They want their liberty back.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
