Insane "progressives"

May 6, 2021

Must-Read Article: Rob Jenkins at American Thinker notes that Americans are so politically polarized that each side believes the other must be literally insane to believe what they believe.

From Sharon:

Mike please stop blaming the Capitol Hill protest for the Blue Reich...this has been in the works for years and they were pulling it during the Obama and Trump years. And who buys it? Please get real.

From the Gov:

Thanks for writing, Sharon. You and I both have valid points to make. You are correct in saying leftists have been working for years to make happen what we are “suddenly” seeing now. It has literally taken generations to get us here.

It’s not accurate, though, to say I blame those Trump supporters for what the “Blue Reich” is doing, as the left would have been driving the same steamroller regardless. What I do say is that the Capitol Hill protest helped their effort immeasurably.

When the protest got out of hand, it helped put gas in that steamroller. It was a gift to the left.

Social media and mainstream news continue working overtime and even engaging in censorship to maintain that Trump supporters are “domestic terrorists” who believe “The Big Lie” of election fraud. Do a search on Google or Yahoo and see what comes up. So, yes, millions of ill-informed people buy this.

Timed as it was to coincide with the change of administration, it gave Biden’s people all the excuse they needed to amp up the violations of our civil rights. By now you’ve seen my commentaries on the government teaming with Big Tech to censor and even spy on “domestic terrorists.” The FBI is cracking down, too, and we've seen how they operate with their pre-dawn raids. Of course, by “domestic terrorists,” they mean YOU AND ME –- anyone who would don the evil, racist MAGA hat. The Capitol Hill protest greased the wheels for all this.

How I wish we could all get into the Way-Back machine and go back to January 5, to warn the protesters about the future and prevent what was going to happen the following day. An unarmed woman was shot to death. And Trump was blamed and impeached on his way out of office for “inciting” it all. In contrast, a completely peaceful protest by thousands of his supporters would have had the needed effect.

Again, I don’t “blame” the protesters for what the left has done and continues to do, but the ones who let their passion interfere with their thinking made a huge mistake that I can never defend.

Biden Remembers

Who doesn’t like a gift? Something given to me by another who spends his or her hard-earned money to provide something I need or maybe something I just want. But if I’m given what’s said to be a gift and then handed a bill to pay for it, is it a gift?
