“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams, 1776
In my view the animated contest of liberty is about how we assure our liberty in the context of our constitution and our changing society. It is not about insults, threats, restriction of free speech, or assaults just because we think differently. This is what the intolerance of the left has brought us.
We have been in a rarefied time in America in the last eight years, where we have knowingly been steadily attacked by the left. Institutions, the family, God, the Constitution, our history, common sense, everything we knew to be American and America was denigrated, trashed, destroyed, mocked, and belittled. While this assault has been underway for a very long time, the difference now is that many Americans have eyes to see and ears to hear. No doubt Divine Intervention has assisted this awakening and all Glory to Him for this opportunity.
As this attack has been underway, our references to our Republic have receded into the background as the discussion is now about “our Democracy“. Everyone uses that term but it is not correct, and if we don’t correct the language we’ll never understand what a Republic is. In more stark terms, our Constitutional Republic has now turned into mob rule, the very definition of “democracy”. No democracy has lasted in history, it always devolves into chaos. And that is where we are right now, on the brink of chaos.
The change from Republic to Democracy as terms for America is as dangerous as it seems and is no small matter. It has been a goal of anarchists, communists, the elite, and the globalists to destroy the strength of America. Cultural Marxism has been used silently and through peer pressure, Hollywood, and institutions of “higher” education against America to essentially promote moral decay.
In 2008 we were talking about Obama’s use of Alinsky tactics in community organizing. Then we knew Obama’s pronouncements of “fundamentally changing America” meant something devastating was coming to America. And we knew also of the the more “organized chaos” approach with the Cloward-Piven Strategy (1966), a technique of revolution initiated in the late 60’s that sought to publicly fight poverty but privately to overwhelm institutions making them unable to function without promoting welfare. According to Discover the Networks,
The authors noted that the number of Americans subsisting on welfare — about 8 million, at the time — probably represented less than half the number who were technically eligible for full benefits. They proposed a “massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls.” Cloward and Piven calculated that persuading even a fraction of potential welfare recipients to demand their entitlements would bankrupt the system. The result, they predicted, would be “a profound financial and political crisis” that would unleash “powerful forces for major economic reform at the national level.”
“Economic reform” is basically replacing capitalism with socialism. This of course melds perfectly with the Communist Party’s 50 steps of toppling America.
Obama’s implementation of Cloward-Piven to fundamentally change America led to a border invasion, refugee invasion, mass shootings, economic ruination of small business, drug trafficking all overwhelming our social, healthcare, emergency, and government resources. AKA, the intentional destruction of America.
As author Joan Swirsky opines, there was a Coup and Counter-coup during the years 2008-2016
In 2009, America experienced a genuine coup d’état, exquisitely formulated and flawlessly executed after decades of planning by the socialists, communists, and jihadists among us who loathe America and have wished for nothing less than transforming our great country into a mecca of far-left, anti-American policies, punctuated by preposterous liberal constructs like political correctness and multiculturalism, and ultimately subservient to Sharia law.
A Watershed Year 2016
Now that the left and elite have been somewhat exposed in their tactics–and desperation–and were rejected and summarily defeated in this battle by the Americans in 2016, they resort to not recognizing our institutions, i.e., elections, electoral college and Congress, to delegitimize our 45th President Donald J. Trump. Swirsky again:
In winning the election, he blocked the left’s ability to use some of its favorite intimidation tactics. It no longer controls an accommodating federal bureaucracy. It no longer runs a Justice Department willing to threaten political opponents and turn a blind eye to liberal abuse. So the left will increasingly rely on campaigns of delegitimization…this is the best they’ve got.”
And they threaten to make it their “first” to have a violent transition of power, disrespecting America and our traditions. Short of their intended property destruction, violence, harassment, and continued stalking, the left has gone as far as it can to show us exactly how much they hate America. Does anyone need any more proof?
Just as they swamped America’s welfare offices in the 1960s, Cloward-Piven devotees now seek to overwhelm the nation’s understaffed and poorly policed electoral system. Their tactics set the stage for the Florida recount crisis of 2000, and have introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections heretofore encountered mainly in Third World countries.
We have in 2017 overcome those forces to elect a man who has given us a glimpse—of the liberty we have lost and perhaps the first chance in decades we’ve had to truly fight for it and which a Republic brings. It is not much different than the time Sam Adams spoke the above.
One thing none of them counted on was the tremendous sophistication of voters across the country––the same voters they’re still disparaging––who had been watching the devolution of our county for eight years and praying and waiting for at least one sane person to save our country from the malignant leftism in our body politic that Mr. Obama so relentlessly stoked…So the left will increasingly rely on campaigns of delegitimization…this is the best they’ve got.
Our Work is Just Beginning
All Glory goes to God for this wonderful victory of Donald J. Trump!
It’s time to identify and root out this mindset among us and our local institutions and get about the business of defeating those who would destroy us…perhaps using both Alinksy and Cloward Piven against them? I bet 8 in 10 liberals will not know what we are doing.
