Mark Steyn, speaking on Wednesday’s TUCKER CARLSON show, had a sharp observation: “It’s always interesting to me that people are surprised when a tactic that’s proved effective for one group of people is then suddenly taken up by other people of whom they don’t approve.”

"There’s been a complete collapse of equality before the law,” Steyn explained. “The more [people on the left] are not subject to any laws, the more onerous the burden that falls upon the law-abiding.” Those on the left can do anything, he said, while those law-abiding souls on the right are “micro-regulated.” (To quote Victor Davis Hanson, “Ideology trumps accountability.”)

"At some point, that has to give,” he said. “And whoever is behind this, to a certain degree, that ‘gave’ today in Washington.”

If that’s what we’re seeing, we conservatives will have to be careful not to become the thing we hate, as so often happens to people. (It’s certainly happened to the left, who used to be pro-free speech.) It may sound cliché to say it at this point, but we really are better than that.


Focus Group-Tested Word Alert

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve noticed that anyone who points out that the same Democrats who supported violent leftist protesters who attacked federal buildings are now condemning violent rightwing protesters who attack federal buildings is being accused of “whataboutism.” For those unfamiliar with this word, it’s a made-up term that means “Stop pointing out my hypocrisy.”

    I agree to a point, but I have a question.

    Question: Was General George Washington leading the patriots to revolution against the British breaking the British law at the time?
    Because of a corrupt unresponsive government that did not care of the people it was governing?

    Based on the responses of our government officials in both party, there would be only a handful that would have followed General Washington.
    There would be many Benedict Arnolds.
    We would still be under the rule of the British if General Washington had our current leaders as his congress and the constitution would never have been written... congress can’t even defend our constitution right now.

    I feel like the American experiment has failed. How did the left get so much control of main stream and social media and why did republicans let it happen? Is MAGA still possible?
