I get tired of progressive
snowflakes and professional offense-seekers claiming that Republicans and
conservatives somehow make them “afraid.” They claim any opinion, belief or
ideal—whether written or spoken—that in any way diverges from their own is an
existential threat to their mental and physical health. They believe that this (free)
speech is violence and should be outlawed but that actual
violence committed in the furtherance of their goals is (free) speech…and
fully protected by the First Amendment. If, Gaia forbid, they happen to stumble
across the truth, they run for their safe spaces like John Kerry in search of a
Well, I too, get scared. I am
afraid of Biden and his administration. I “don’t feel safe” with leftist wackos
running the country. And with damn good reason, I might add. Everything is
going to hell in a handbasket. Our foreign policy is in shambles. We have gone
from the one true superpower to an international joke in nothing flat. Prices
of goods and services are skyrocketing. There is a severe labor shortage in a
time of high unemployment. We are no longer energy independent, and some are
predicting that rolling blackouts will span the nation this winter, to add to
the sudden shortage of most other consumables. More Americans have died from
COVID-19 in the first 10 months of 2021 than perished from the China Virus in
all of 2020. Worse, every one of the U.S. government’s intelligence agencies
have been tasked with surveilling, harassing-- and potentially imprisoning--
the roughly 40%-50% of Americans who still believe in the founding principles
of their nation. Christian? Patriotic? Believe in limited government of, by,
and for the people and the rule of law? Think our rights are unalienable and
granted to us by our Creator? Then you are a “domestic terrorist.” And you will
be placed on a list that no one wants to be on.
We are a long, long way from
“Father Knows Best.” Incredibly, many Americans now believe that government
knows best. Somewhere, Jefferson weeps. The vast majority of so-called
Americans are okay with government telling them that they must allow an
unvetted foreign substance into their bodies, no questions asked, or have their
freedoms—and their jobs-- curtailed or eliminated.
I don’t feel safe with vaccine mandates. Or lockdowns.
Or mask mandates. Or with a ruling elite telling me that my job is “not
essential.” Or that I must use certain pronouns/words when addressing certain
people. Or that I must believe that a man can be a woman or vice-versa.
I did feel safe when
Ronald Reagan was president (Ronald “Ray-gun” as many liberal morons called
him). And when Donald Trump was in office.
But I don’t feel safe
when those in power try to take my Second Amendment rights away from me,
effectively telling me I can’t defend myself or my family, and that our
lives just aren’t that important. No more “necessary” than our jobs, I guess.
I don’t feel safe when ill-educated,
over-indoctrinated, faceless automatons in the Deep State try to dictate to
elected officials and citizens alike.
I don’t feel safe when the president of the United
States curtsies to tyrants like the Supreme Leader of Iran, Sayyid Ali Hosseini
Khamenei, or Xi Jinping.
I don’t feel safe when they openly declare their
intentions to teach our kids to judge each other based on their skin color, via
the 1619 Project, etc.
And I sure as hell don’t feel
safe when truth is referred to as “misinformation.”
Today’s “liberals” mistake
strength for warmongering, candor for hate speech, and the truth for “The Big
And, yes, I am “afraid” for
my country when I watch so many fellow citizens blithely, docilely give up
their God-given rights to the ruling elite.
The Left works tirelessly to
sap Americans’ independence and integrity and make them dependent on…The
Left. The Biden administration tries to divide Americans by sowing envy and
distrust and by coercing everyone to emphasize our (race, ethnicity, gender,
class, etc., etc.) differences. This, too, is the opposite of the
erstwhile American creed of E pluribus unum, “out of many, one.” And it has
effectively made many fear and detest each other. Tragically, a large
percentage of Americans have turned away from each other—and God-- and looked to the government for support and redress.
This never ends well.
As Thomas Jefferson said, "When government fears the people, there is liberty.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." This has,
historically, always been the case.
Ironically, the government does not
fear us now because too many of us don’t fear the government.
It is time to change that.
