IF I WANTED TO DESTROY AMERICA...

Do you ever get the idea that some of the people in our country just don’t like it? Even some elected officials who want to govern the country, like MN Congresswoman Ilhan Omar openly says we need to dismantle the very structures of America, including our economic system. I find that a bit strange coming from someone who escaped the absolute squalor of Somalia where the annual per capita income is $225 and came to America where she lives large and even somehow got elected to Congress. Is her goal to make us like her home country? I sure hope not! I’m starting to think that some loud voices in our world want to get rid of America once and for all. And they’ve observed that it doesn’t work to do it from the outside. An attack like Pearl Harbor or 9-11 only unifies the country and gives us the resolve to fight back. So suppose I wanted to destroy America? What would be the best way to do it?

I’d first replace the education system top to bottom. Instead of giving students the tools to think, reason, and analyze based on hard facts, I’d give them a system in which everyone thinks alike. Deviating from “group-think” would be strictly forbidden, and would result in a person being ostracized, scorned, and prohibited from even being employed. I’d erase all substance and symbols of history. Instead of ensuring that students actually read and understood the documents of our origin, like the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, I’d focus instead on pop culture and fill history books with Lady Gaga, the Kardashians, and Beyonce. I’d demonize George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin by never allowing students to see what these men actually said or did. I’d find any flaw in them and make that the only thing kids learned.

I’d never simply teach that the country had some ugly chapters of slavery and racism, as did virtually every nation. I’d pretend that those things still exist now, despite the obvious fact that a black person was twice elected President by defeating white candidates which meant that a large number of white people voted for the black candidate. I’d ignore that black people have held virtually every cabinet agency at one time or another, served at the top of our military, advanced in business to become millionaires and billionaires, led the world in several scientific and medical innovations.

I would seek to undo a system of economic capitalism which rewarded work and innovation. I wouldn’t demand equality of opportunity, but equality of outcome, which would mean that there wouldn’t be an incentive to study all night for an “A” since everyone would get the same grade anyway. And why take the risk of starting a business based on a better idea to do or create something if working from early to late still netted you the same pay as the person who came late, left early, and never created anything? I’d just give everyone a trophy. No one would ever lose.

I’d get rid of law enforcement. Cops get in the way of us doing what we want, taking what belongs to others, and having civil order. If there is anarchy and chaos and people are terrified to live and work where they live, it’ll be easier for me to convince people that the problem is not LACK of law enforcement, but the presence of law enforcement. I’d use words that sound good to cover my real intentions. I’d say equality when I really mean favoritism; I’d say tolerance when I really mean intolerance; I’d say diversity when I really mean uniformity; and I’d say women’s health when I really mean doing a very unnatural surgical procedure to kill a baby and do real damage to a woman’s physical and mental health. I’d marginalize religion and brand its adherents as fanatics, bigots, hate-mongers, and racists because belief in moral absolutes like love, forgiveness, charity, sacrifice, and service are a real threat to controlling people and making them follow what they are told.

I’d never attack America with a bomb, bullets, or battleships. I’d just lie about her history and origins, destroy every symbol of its legacy both good and bad, indoctrinate instead of educate so as to have uniformity of thought, and I’d take away all ownership of private property and personal capital and give everyone the exact same thing so as to destroy the incentives that made people like me who grew up poor to work really hard to live better and with that to give better.

But I don’t want to destroy America. I love America. And it’s why I won’t let her get destroyed without a fight.

    Very well said it reminds me are they radio talk given many years ago. Evil will not endure but it takes people to realize how bad evil is where it comes from what it disguises itself in and a concerted effort to kill it countries like Germany didn’t pay attention and Hitler out of a field day I’ll because they did not act

    I saw this on a FB post today and wonder. Have you heard of a book entitled Naked Communist, by W Cleon Skousen, apparently an ex FBI Agent. Written around 1960. Check it out, I have not yet. It is apparently a warning about rules for Communism, which might sound very familiar and a lot like Sol Alinksy's rules for Socialism.

    When I was a child I listened to cruchev from the Soviet union bang his shoe and pretty much prophesize your words Governor. This period we are in could easily fit in that series from the 60's"the wild wild west". God please help us all. Thank You Sir for your Strengh and Commitment to our Nation,God Bless you and your Loved One's.

    Thank you for a great and truthful article. Next we need a list of realistic, practical ways average Christian Conservatives can peacefully stand up against what is happening in our large to small cities & towns. BLM has tricked our city officials into supporting this Marxist organization wishes. Our only city historical, widely-circulated newspaper (with its hateful, crude political cartoonist) and only local TV station are controlled by Liberals. I've written letters to the Editor, made comments on TV station's Facebook page, challenged Democrat friends' TDS on FB, and show my patriotism in front of our home. Know there are others seeking ways, especially since many of us are presently self-quarantined. Thanks for all you and Sarah do for America!

    Dear Governor,
    As usual, you hit the nail on the head. It’s up to those of of left who love this country to save it. We first have to educate those who will follow us. If we don’t, the there will be no country left for them to love. I wonder if any of those imbeciles running rampant in the street(and those letting them do so) have ever read “1984”, “Lord of the Flies”, or “It Can’t Happen Here”. In the meantime, I urge everyone to get off their butts and VOTE. That is still the best, and most effective way to achieve peaceful change. The difference between our revolution, and all the other failed attempts since has been the effective use of the vote, and the peaceful change of government that follows. We don’t need another Reign of Terror. If things keep going the way they are now I’m on the lookout for the next Robespierre. I hope it doesn’t come to that. This November will be the telling point. Vote as if you’re life depends on it. I believe it does.

    Mike!,
    What you are saying here is taking place (and has been for a couple of generations). Looks like all of us Patriotic, God fearing Conservatives better think about getting ready to join in the fray, for it is already upon us. I for one will defend my religious beliefs, my family, my rights and the Constitution to my last breath (In that order!). I am US Army retired, DSC, SSM and PH. My way of thinking will not and can not change! .......Cliff

    If President Trump thinks he can give citizenship to the DACA kids, he will have no republicans voting for him in November. These kids hate him and will not vote for him in November. I don't know who is giving hims such bad advice. I hate Biden, but I will vote for him if the President gives these kids citizenship.

    Dear Mr. Huckabee, Once again I find myself agreeing with you emphatically!! Prayer is effective, yet I’m hoping for more practical tools to be of service too... Your column is informative, but I’d really appreciate more ideas on how to peacefully yet powerfully counteract the ongoing political circus. How can we affect change?? Again, thank you for your efforts and information. Keep up the good work. God bless you and yours.

    You've hit it full one with this posting - how on earth did these crazies get elected to anything? I can't figure. Of course they hate America - and one wonders why they stay? Well, follow the money. They get money from those who are rich and WHO REALLY hate America. but why? one wonders.

    There is one and ONLY one CORE reason Ilhan Omar wants to dismantle the very structures of America (read totally destroy the U.S. And that ONE CORE Reason is that SHE IS A MUSLIM and her Islamic faith is the absolute antithesis of American foundational beliefs that she desperately want to come under Islamic control. SHE IS A TRAITOR OF THE FIRST DEGREE!!!! She should be deported to Sudan or Iran.
