Progressives fret about the Trump administration colluding with Russia when the “Department of Justice” and the FBI colluded with an outgoing administration to interfere in a U.S. presidential election and then attempted a coup against the duly elected incoming president of those United States. They are horrified at the thought of closing down our southern border, yet are utterly sanguine about the countless robberies, murders, drug deaths and sex-trafficking that open borders and unchecked illegal immigration necessarily engender.
We are terrified of even second-hand cigarette smoke, but are rapidly legalizing heavily THC-laden marijuana, even though a marijuana cigarette has four times the amount of tar that an average tobacco cigarette contains.
Progressives defend the rights of folks to use the vilest language in public places and on public forums but not their right to say a Christian-based prayer or post the Ten Commandments. They love our celebrities for continually spewing obscenities and directing vile threats at the president-- who they claim is rude and a bully. Antifa, Michael Moore, and any of the most radical young Democrats are welcome to speak on college campuses, but not Ben Shapiro, Dennis Prager or Candace Owens.
They are afraid of “toxic masculinity” while many of our most serious problems stem from our ever-increasing feminization—and infantilization. They shame those private business owners who decline to make a cake for a gay couple’s wedding, but are utterly unfazed by the nearly complete destruction of the traditional family and our declining birth rates.
Progressives believe our land and water is being ravaged by a handful of invasive species, changing our ecosystems forever for the worse, yet believe that massive hordes of human immigrants of any stripe—from anywhere—are an unquestioned blessing. Leftists think fossil fuel production will kill the planet, even after 200 years, yet refuse to accept the fact that wind-power turbines and solar panels would have to blanket virtually the entire country to satisfy our energy needs, with the former rendering birds virtually extinct. Modern day liberals believe the likes of Al Gore and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are genuinely concerned about carbon footprints, even as they are shuttled around in large SUVs, limousines and chartered aircraft, while they are sure that Republicans want to foul the air, pollute the water and throw your grandma off the cliff for good measure…with absolutely no supporting evidence.
We encase our kids in bubble-wrap and a helmet if they engage in an activity that could possibly give them a boo-boo, yet slaughter them in—and now out—of the womb by the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, each year. We are punished for “misgendering” someone, but care not about this cavalier attack on reason and the very essence of our being. Leftists proclaim that it is an individual’s God-given choice whether to kill their baby or not, or to proclaim themselves a member of the opposite sex, but not to protect themselves and their family by owning a firearm…or to wear a “MAGA” hat in public.
Progressives worry about global warming when the sun may well be on its way to expiring.
We have a virtually perfect track record of worrying about the wrong things.
Where do we go from here? There are two things history clearly teaches us: one is that leftists never relent while conservatives are too eager to please. The other……is that we don’t learn from history.
