Dissolve the Union, or prepare for the use of force
They now follow blindly into the dark with conviction
convinced that the outcome would be to their liking and if its not they can cower in a safe room in mommy and daddy’s basement for protection from the cruel world.
The man on the street segment run on waters world and other programs asking basic questions to the young woke’s about people and politics proves their steadfast and belligerent arrogant stupidity about issues and history they are willing to fight you about
Fortunately, it is not "half of the country". It is likely no more than 30%, at most.
Nearly all of those 30% have a false perception of reality because the vast majority of the media have a false perception of reality and work hard at promoting that perception.
The media and most of the left have violated one of the most basic of moral codes: to thine own self be true.
They constantly lie to the themselves, believing themselves to be like gods, and capable of changing reality with their words.
“The left” are elitists. Elitist sneer at the bourgeois who are mired in reality. The elite are above the limits of reality. To an elitist, reality is what the uber-elites declare it is.
The left is evil.
The Bible actually talks to this. Whether you knew it or not, you just confirmed it.
Lets be specific about who this is about what being a racist is? Does this include the Black and Hispanic Caucuses for example? Or in the writers eyes does it only pertain to white people?
I fear the only way to cure this cancer now is a CW.
It is going to come down to kill or be killed. The Left will not stop without vast use of force or they will kill or enslave the rest of us.
I came to this conclusion some time ago (and decided to make this my new tagline): Finding middle ground with tyranny or evil makes you either a tyrant or evil. Often both.
And many of us have decided we simply won’t do either of them anymore. The Left has, through calculated incrementalism, pushed us further and further into a corner.
We aren’t going to step out of that corner we have been painted in to find either comfort or acceptance. It isn’t that important to many of us anymore.
When I first read this book, I found it to be a spy thriller.
The second time I read it, I thought it was a political book.
The third time I read it, I realized it was a man's search for God.
And that was when the book really hit me. This passage from Witness explains it, and encompasses the conversation we are having on Free Republic today, as both of you readily see:
...It [Communism] is not new. It is, in fact, man's second oldest faith. Its promise was whispered in the first days of the Creation under the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: "Ye shall be as gods." It is the great alternative faith of mankind. Like all great faiths, its force derives from a simple vision. Other ages have had great visions. They have always been different versions of the same vision: the vision of God and man's relationship to God. The Communist vision is the vision of Man without God.
It is the vision of man's mind displacing God as the creative intelligence of the world. It is the vision of man's liberated mind, by the sole force of its rational intelligence, redirecting man's destiny and reorganizing man's life and the world. It is the vision of man, once more the central figure of the Creation, not because God made man in his image, but because man's mind makes him the most intelligent of the animals. Copernicus and his successors displaced man as the central fact of the universe by proving that the earth was not the central star of the universe. Communism restores man to his sovereignty by the simple method of denying God...
The left seeks to, and has largely succeeded in replacing God with Man on this earth. Some of us won't go down that road, and that makes us alien and outcast to them. I can't think of any badges, honors, or medals I would rather wear than that.
I am with you, Wayne.
I also appreciate the distinction Mr. Prager makes between “The Left” and “Liberals”.
Liberals are often not the enemy, they are simply misguided, without reflective thought, education, or intelligence. They often may be the enemy simply because they give weight to the Left it might otherwise not have.
But the Left is indeed our enemy through and through.
...the vast majority of the media have a false perception of reality and work hard at promoting that perception.
And pubic (gov) schools, colleges, universities, Hollywood, unions, churches, social media and Democrats. All are aligned on social Marxism taking over America.
No, you are totally wrong
Liberals are the enemy. They must be destroyed. Liberals have eaten up all the garbage they have been fed and ravenously ask for more.
Your friends and relatives that are liberals are a danger to America
The hardest lesson for the pc tolerant to learn.
One of the most disturbing things to me is the Left’s perception of “truth”.
If you listen to them, they often say things like “That’s YOUR truth”, and it illustrates that to them, “truth” is malleable.
We all know that a large part of truth to many people is perception, what the senses tell them, and it is not uncommon for people witnessing an event to have very different versions of what they saw.
But the fact is that humans are flawed, our senses and our perceptions run through the filter of our bodies and environment are often flawed.
And that highlights one of the most dramatic differences between Conservatives and Leftists:
Conservatives must exercise a high degree of introspection which requires thought and conscious effort. We not only recognize we are flawed and CAN be wrong, but we are forced through the efforts of the Left to constantly do critical examinations of our belief systems and be prepared to defend them, simply because they are constantly being derided and attacked by the Left.
The Left has no such imposition or obligation, and they instead lean on groupthink and the weight they feel that imparts on their belief systems. We see that demonstrated time and time again in every single issue ranging from environmentalism to abortion.
