Left-Wing Ideology Now Rules Supreme In America ^ | December 13, 2012 | Douglas MacKinnon

Posted on 12/13/2012 8:32:15 AM PST by Kaslin

News flash for conservatives, Christians, libertarians or anyone in America who embraces traditional values, the rule of law, common sense, basic math, a more secure nation or politicians who put you and your family first: You have lost or are losing across the board. Period.

With the re-election of Barack Obama — and he and his campaign should be congratulated for not only running a winning campaign but, more importantly, for also exploiting the weaknesses created by the nanny-state — there is now no more mystery or doubt. Liberal ideology rules supreme in our country and to say otherwise, is to deny the facts.

This winning liberal ideology — or theology to many on the far left — has been aided, abetted, guided and shaped by many in the mainstream media who now openly turn their backs on ethics, professionalism and character in favor of evangelizing for their new faith.

Be it the major networks, the cable networks or most of the top newspapers in the country, all now have highly influential personnel who have deliberately cast aside morality for liberal victory at any price.

Unfortunately, much worse than that, many of these same media personalities and outlets have added character assassination of conservatives or conservative viewpoints to their rhetorical arsenals.

The most egregious and recent example of this being when the editorial writers for the Washington Post gleefully smeared almost 100 Republican House members with the charge of racism. In their jumping-the-shark attack titled, "The GOP's Bizarre Attack On Susan Rice," the Washington Post wondered:

"Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African-American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can't know their hearts.

"What we do know is that more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy. You'd think that before launching their broadside, members of Congress would have taken care not to propagate any falsehoods of their own."

Right Surrenders

Amazingly, the Republican leadership just took this false and obscene charge on the chin. Rather than taking to the airwaves to demand an apology from the Post and rounding up a good legal team to sue for defamation, the GOP leaders went silent.

Of course, this would be the same leadership that threatens the few conservatives in the House with expulsion from committee assignments if they don't tow the "water down our principles" line, so their ducking an issue of integrity may be understandable.

In and of itself, that's yet another glaring example of why the liberals now control the megaphone of America and rule supreme. All too often, conservatives, Christians and anyone who espouses traditional values will simply wring their hands and say "what are we to do" when their beliefs are attacked or eradicated.

The polar-opposite of that being the reaction from the far left when they feel threatened. Be it gay marriage, the unsustainable and economy-destroying benefits for public-employees, "global warming," ObamaCare, extending unemployment benefits to infinity, open borders, legalizing drugs or a host of other issues, many on the far left will fight tooth and nail to defend that which is dear to them.

They will march, they will boycott, they will harass, they will cyber-attack, they will be relentless. And finally, they will intimidate many politicians and corporations into complete capitulation.

As to why those who believe in traditional values and the rule of law don't fight back, it's because everywhere they turn, they see the battle lost.

The media? The far left controls it. Entertainment? The far left controls it. Education from pre-school to post-graduate? The far left controls it. Music? The far left controls it. Pulitzer and Nobel prizes? The far left controls them. The unions? The far left controls them. Historians? The far left are the historians.

The "message" of America? The far-left dictates it.

Somewhere along the way, conservatives and all who believe in traditional values ceded every single bully-pulpit to the far left. The evidence is clear:

The far left has won, and its power grab and influence continues unabated. Now what?

I don't think I've ever seen conservatives do down and disillusioned. I have to admit I have the same feelings. I think the best thing to do now is to organize on a local level. Find like minded people. Use barter and private funding and local exchange - resist the “takers” any way that you can. Create self protection networks with your trusted neighbors. Keep everything on the downlow. Work hard and insist on top dollar for your services (after all the population of educated and effective employees is shrinking). Strip the system where ever you can take advantage of every government free-be and program. Consider strategic “separation” so your spouse can pillage government benefits, while you write off income/support on your taxes. Advise your children to get government jobs - the private sector is on the ropes. Learn survival skills and improve your skills. Tune out, turn off, drop out.

This just has to play itself out till our economic house of cards implodes. But that may not happen soon, it is possible to kick the can down the road for a long, long time.

When? I suppose it will be when the Fed-gov cannot borrow any more money while maintaining the astronomical deficit spending. There seems to be not enough politcal will to reign in spending for the forsee-able future.

That day the Repubs better prepare to capitalize on the crisis. Oh, yeah, the stupid party.

Good grief, no it doesn’t. We just saw Michigan pass right to work, an Illinois court just ruled some of that state’s restrictions on guns to be unconstitutional, Virginia is in the process of dumping card check, and conservative Republicans picked up seats in state legislatures and governourships across the country.

It’s just at the national level where the GOP can’t get its head out of the sand. And even then, Obama just barely squeaked back in, and that on the back of vote fraud.

This is the time to get busy about defeating the Left. This is NOT the time to chicken little like a bunch of pansies.

We need to let the system collapse, but also create some type of organized alternative structure to oppose the hard Leftist tyranny that will fill vacuum during the period of anarchy to come.

When the economy collapses, there will be no government checks for anyone. The police, the firefighters, the military personal, the medical personal, the electrical workers, the oil workers, will all leave their positions to save their own families. Everyone will have to care for themselves. The only ones who won't be able to do that are the far left. There will be no one to support them. They'll be the minority, because everyone else will labor to rebuild, and those working hard to rebuild will NOT tolerate the left wing freeloaders or dictators.

In the end, every man will sit under and tend to his own vine, and no man will be able to take it away from him ever again. People will be free of left wing oppression and slavery. Everyone will have to share the work and the wealth will share itself. Only then will there be peace in the land.(The Pilgrims learned this the hard way, too.)

I am in same boat and only hope that the outright fighting either starts soon or after I am gone. I don’t want to be unable to engage because I am in the last chapter and cannot muster it anymore.

As long as one person remains who is willing to defend our Constitution at all costs, the game is still on.

I would guess that at least 40% of this country's inhabitants aren't idiots or else permanent vassals of the State.

It is we who now need to organize, just as the other side has - from the bottom, up. We also could use a leader to help spread a coherent message of liberty and the potential of American Renewal from the top, down.

And: we need to get our children the hell out of the mind-numbing, life force-draining Socialist International Indoctrination Centers that our public schools have become. Home schooling is one answer, but it is clearly not for everyone. Other alternatives to public "education" are clearly required. I've got some ideas along those lines, and I'm working on them.

Political parties are not the answer, either. The GOP has proven itself useless as a means of resisting the increasingly radical assaults on our freedom. Too many of its leaders quite evidently value their careers and elite lifestyles above abstract notions like "liberty" and "limited constitutional government".

No. It's going to be up to us - the citizens who still give a damn about freedom and are willing to fight for it, no matter where that decision leads - and I use these words advisedly: no matter what must be done. People like Bill Ayers, Barack Obama, Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, and John Holdren rule our lives because we have come to depend on people who have no real intention of ever stopping them.

I'll give you all one parting hint: if you want to stop people from stealing your liberty, you first need to stop facilitating their power and control by no longer recognizing their authority. That's correct: we need to start breaking more laws, more frequently. Including - no, especially - the Federal tax code. That's just for starters. Because when the law is set against honorable people, honorable people must become outlaws.

In the meanwhile: join your local Tea Party affiliate. Stop patronizing the poisonous mainstream media and instead find the many alternative information sources (still) available. It will be a long, hard struggle. But the first step is knowing not to give up before the battle is over. The truth is: it hasn't even really been fought yet,

They had the complicity of decades of Conservative politicians who said ONE thing to get themselves elected, THEN went to DC and DID something else!

And this is the utter folly of allowing political office-holding to become a career choice instead of a civic duty. Many of our "conservative" politicians are only interested in re-election so they can continue to enjoy all the perks, benefits and privileges that go with the office.

Many are only in DC to lobby for special interests (aka, the people who fund their election campaigns.) Many have no core principles, unlike the Marxist Left which has the destruction of capitalism "by any means necessary" as its heartfelt goal.

The Administration are Bolshevik communists. The majority of the democrat party are Bolshevik communists. The republicans are the Mensheviks and part of the criminal class. The Supreme Court are merely political hacks and no longer support the Constitution. The media is the propaganda arm of the communists. The majority of Americans no longer have any confidence in honest elections. Change through the electoral process in this country is over. Only one think left folks. That is why the Founders authored the Second Amendment. It will come. Slowly at first then a major event will unite the Resistance. It will be bitter and painful for awhile but the self reliant, the rugged individuals, the hard working, honest, God fearing men and women will take our country back.

Surely, Doug, you meant "TOE the line" .... instead of giving us another example of Net illiteracy?

Don't post like a Balchinian.

"Now what?"

I'm really disapointed in most of these replies.

The Constitution is NOT DEAD. It is we, "the conservatives", that are not reading and following the instructions of the Constitution. The Constitution tells us EXACTLY what to do to preserve and regain our lost liberty. It's found in Article 5.

We must use the power of the states to call a Constitutional Convention.

As little as three amendments or changes to current amendments could return full liberty to ALL of the fifty states.

The left has a HUGE weakness. They simply don't have the numbers to defeat us on a level playing field. This has always been true yet we have failed to exploit it. An Article 5 Convention levels the playing field where the left will be outnumbered three to one.

I encourage all on this thread to do two simple things.

1. Study up on Article 5 of the Constitution. Understand the reason the founders gave the states the option to call a Constitutional Convention.

2. Put up a picture of the red and blue states and precincts from the last election and stare at it frequently.

The answer to "Now what?" will soon be very clear.

The MSM needs to be destroyed. That is the only way we are getting our country back.

Precisely. They need to be the first casualty in the coming war.

Keep your powder dry.

No they won't. When the freebies run out they will make ever greater demands on those of us who work and pay taxes. Look for a tax on savings, investment, 401ks, etc. Oh wait they're ALREADY talking about cranking up taxes on these.

Hmmm, if I were a Leftist, I might see a certain utility in promoting a caterwauling jeremiad like this in an opposition opinionmaking blog or news outlet.

“The MSM needs to be destroyed. That is the only way we are getting our country back.”

MSM = the democrat party. and the media has ruled the U.S.A for 100 years so we see the threat. the media/democrat party = the enemy of freedom and must be destroyed. I've seen people here suggest the media is the problem and they are right but the media is just part of the democrat party.

You're right about that . and I see many other good solutions here. I think we have to get out in the streets and demonstrate against the media and the democrat party. Have we ever done that? not enough at all. I have never even seen someone even here or anywhere name the enemy = the democrat party. The media is the main weapon of the democrat party . The democrat party including Obama and the media want to own every piece of property in the U.S.A. . That is socialism. And then they can own us and so we all will become starving slaves as in Cuba, N Korea, Venezuela . that is socialism. I've seen people in Egypt protesting and fighting in the streets against THEIR dictator. I don't see conservatives here out in the streets even after this piece of crap Obama stole the election with fraud. I've seen the Georgians in the old soviet union out in the street protesting .What are we waiting for. we need signs like "the media is the enemy" , " the media = democrat party" , "Obama stole the election " , "abolish the EPA" , " Obamacare = slavery" , "Obama is a socialist dictator" etc. but no we are all content to sit here and watch football on our made in China big screen while they steal more of our freedom and country. We need to get off our ass or at least name the enemy here = the MSM (the democrat party). How can we even start to fight when we don't agree on who is the main enemy. I get the impression that most on this site think the GOP is the MAIN enemy and hardley if at all do i see the democrat party named as the main enemy: I"ve never seen that and the media has ruled this country for 100 years.
