The Left's 1942
American Thinker ^ | Jan 03, 2018 | J.R. Dunn

Nineteen forty-two was the critical year of WWII. During that year, four battles were fought that turned the fortunes of war in favor of the Allies. At the beginning of the year, the Allies, reeling from the collapse of France and the ensuing Blitz, the loss of Greece and Crete, Hitler's invasion of Russia, Pearl Harbor, and the string of ensuing defeats across Asia and the Pacific, were facing universal catastrophe. By the end of the year, the tide had turned on virtually all fronts, and the Allied cause was well on its way to victory.


Few epochs in history have ever witnessed such a cumulative change of fortunes in such a short time. But in times to come, 2017 may well be looked upon in the same way as regards the defeat of leftism in the Western world.

While certainly not as dramatic as the events of WWII, the political defeat of leftism may well be just as decisive. It is, after all, the last surviving remnant of what historian John Lukacs called the "social-nationalist" ideologies, which include fascism, Nazism, communism, and State Shinto. Leftism is a survival of the politically diseased 20th century, remaining only due to social inertia and rabid indoctrination through education and the media.

It may finally be coming to the end of its string. It's a fact easily drawn from recent history that these ideologies can maintain themselves only through brutal and unrelenting coercion. Both fascism and communism ruled only through the pistol and barbed wire.Liberalism, thanks to the rule of law and the checks and balances that constitute our political system, could not resort to these resources except in limited cases that immediately provoked mass revulsion. So, unlike its brother ideologies, liberalism failed to maintain its rule over the long haul.

The Left will never die. It may get knocked down but it will regroup and wait for its next chance.

If the “right” is fighting to make America stronger, and more self-reliant, then they deserve to be helped.

However, there is a HUGE section of American “conservatives” who are completely in the globalist sell-out camp.

Those are not righists, who we want to help. They like the leftists, are unprincipled sell-outs.

What we need are people who will support America becoming ever stronger, and stop selling out everything, to everyone. Except for things made right in America.

For real.

I'm thinking of 1942 but in a different way. The election of 2016 was for the Democrat Party what The Battle of Midway was for the Japanese Navy. June,4,1942.

The thing to remember about the battle of Midway is that it bears all hallmarks of a miracle of God. We were so badly outnumbered. Much of our equipment was so inferior. Many of our flyers so inexperienced. The enemy was so confident of victory. Still, in a period of less than 5 minutes three Japanese carriers were destroyed and after much sacrifice the battle was won.

This wasn't the first or last time that, facing long odds and desperate circumstances Americans won. From the evacuation of Brooklyn Heights in 1776 to the A Sau Valley, America has benefited from a number of improbable victories that are difficult to explain in a purely tactical way.

On November 8 2016 they told us there was no "path to victory" for Donald Trump. The democrats were united against him as never before. The bureaucracy, the people who make the government work, were united against him. Academia and the intelligentsia were united against him. The popular culture was united against him. Much of the power structure of the Republican Party was united against him. Don't even bother to vote they told us.

Still, we won and all those who disparaged him, and us, are left to fabricate lies and make excuses.

There was one group in the county who supported him though. 87% of Conservative Christians voted for Trump. Just sayin'.

An excellent article well worth reading. Here is one of the defeats listed...

The #MeToo movement –

In an outburst of uncontrolled social hysteria, the ladies succeeded in taking down a 9-to-1 or more majority of Democrats and leftists, including such power figures as Harvey Weinstein, a major leftist bagman; John Conyers, a deeply corrupt career leftist; and Al Franken. The appointment of Anita Hill as leader of the movement guarantees that it will peter out into sheer ineffectuality in short order, before it begins to harm the innocent. As it stands, it must be counted as a victory not only in the number of creeps it took down, but in the way it revealed left-wing hypocrisy.

I have come to understand that in the coming Civil War it will not be only leftists arrayed against me and my people, but fake assed republicans, too.

I hate them. Fair weather friends are not real friends.

There is a bumper sticker I see around town that I agree with:

“The Solution to 1984 is 1776”.

1942--a terrible year for the USC Trojans, who lost to the UCLA Bruins for the first time.

The Republican Party did better, winning 47 seats in the House and nine in the Senate.

Max Boot has proudly announced his shame over his "white privilege," and John Podhoretz is pontificating on Twitter concerning the sacredness of "diversity."

I enjoyed reading their commentary early in the century, but these two have now defected to the Dark Side. Unbelievable!

It would do you good to read the entire article.

There is no Civil War coming.

At least not the shooting kind.

If we wish to end this injustice Roy Moore must publicly discredit his major accusers.

Providing the people of Alabama threw away their Senate seat on a media deception. Short of that we will keep falling for this.

The other thing we can do is pay the same game with many more Democrats. It’s easy to round up 40 year old accusers and lots of them.

We could take out every Democrat in the Senate and House this way. Most of them are more than old enough.
