And so it is a movie about a people of a certain time, a people who knew who they were, a people who firmly understood their culture and their obligations to it, and to their nation, and to each other.” These words written by John Kass, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, come at a time when our Nation’s identity is threatened every day.
In his column reviewing the movie Dunkirk about hundreds of thousands of British soldiers trapped on a beach in Northern France with the German Army coming to slaughter them, Kass praises the film with all the appropriate acclaim for a worthy film, and adds one more word— DECENCY. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/kass/ct-dunkirk-movie-kass-met-0723-20170721-column.html
Yes, I’m afraid we have lost sight of who we are. We hardly recognize our culture, any obligation to it—or to our nation, or to each other. Can these things be recovered without DECENCY?—Polite, moral, and honest behavior and attitudes that show respect for other people.
NOWHERE IN OUR SOCIETY IS THE LACK OF DECENCY MORE PREVALENT THAN IN THE POLITICS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY and THE DEMOCRAT MEDIA.
There has been a constant drumbeat of pure hatred coming from both—even before Trump took office. They have not and will never accept that Donald J. Trump is the elected president of the United States in accordance with the Constitution. They hate everything he says or does and reject all that he was elected to do.
The Democrat machine is in a stunning meltdown that eradicates every sense of DECENCY with their acquired “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
Democrats (although most of the machine have been led into it like proverbial Lemmings) are disciples of the political organizer SAUL ALINSKY, a revolutionary Marxist Leftist who wrote Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals.
“The quest for power as the first priority, the need to conceal one’s true agenda, and the assurance that the rules don’t apply to radicals who break them in service to the cause make up the CORE MESSAGE OF ALINSKY’S TEACHING.” —David Horowitz, Big Agenda, p. 36
It is the Alinsky “quest for power” that needs to be understood to comprehend the motivation and methods of the Democrats’ agenda: they will stop at nothing to achieve their warped world-transforming ideals. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals would be more appropriately named No Rules for Radicals! These are the political guidelines for modern Progressives and the Democratic party today.”
In the 2016 election campaign Hillary Clinton, who did her college thesis on Alinsky’s writings, employed the strategy of his RULE 13: “PICK THE TARGET, FREEZE IT, PERSONALIZE IT, AND POLARIZE IT.” i.e.—She employed the POLITICS OF PERSONAL DESTRUCTION to advance her agenda with NO REGARD TO DECENCY. To Hillary and Alinsky the End justifies any Means:
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people — now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=–rW68T74q
Obama is also a disciple of Alinsky and even wrote about him in his books. He employed the Alinsky’s Rule 13 in the campaign of 2008 explaining small towns in Pennsylvania and a lot of small towns in the Midwest who wouldn’t vote for him:
“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2h13OZHdmc
These are but two examples of the contempt and lack of DECENCY that Democrats hold for all who do not embrace their political ideology. To judgmentally castigate ordinary Americans by questioning their motives, is despicable!
And despicable also, are the White Supremacists (neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klansmen) who gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend under the pretense of protesting the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue from a park. They came marauding as Republicans attempting to hijack conservatism and reshape it into their own dangerous ideology. White Supremacism evokes natural rage and every decent American should unequivocally reject and condemn everything they stand for. No American should ever support any race-based movement whether it’s led by David Duke or Louis Farrakhan.
However, this terrible tragedy completely unhinged Democrats and Democrat Media and gave them another opportunity to denouce Trump and pull out Alinsky’s Rule 13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. I think it is our Chicago mayor who said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” And they didn’t!
How quickly they pounced upon blaming President Trump. He was called a Bigot in Chief, a Racist, a Nazi Sympathizer, a White Supremacist, a Piece of S_ _t, and many more. Calls for impeachment and threats of assassination were made. In an odd sort of way Democrats have provoked this kind of white supremacist backlash by smearing the everyday American Trump supporters with hate campaigns and name-calling every day since their chosen candidate lost the election.
Trump condemned the “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. That statement quickly drew the rage from the far left and media who always despise everything the president says or does. They demanded that he “name the enemy” and when he did on Monday, it wasn’t good enough—“he read it off a teleprompter.”
Then in a press conference to introduce the Infrastructure Plan, they bombarded him with demands to call out White Supremacists. When he did he was accused of moral equivalency—Alt-Right and Alt-Left. His words were twisted to suit the Democrat agenda— Rule 13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
FACT: (Alt-Right groups) came armed for a confrontation and counter-demonstrators (Alt-Left) came armed as well. Three innocent lives were lost because of them—hardly an act of decency on either side. However, I have seen several videos that clearly depict the radical left groups initiating the violence.
FACT: One side had a permit to demonstrate; the other side didn’t. The Alt-Left came because two words evoked their rage—White Supremacist. We can debate whether the permitted side should have been able to gather in the first place with their hateful message, but without the Alt- Left there would not have been any violence—An inconvenient truth!
CAN WE AS A NATION BLINDLY IGNORE THE ATMOSPHERE OF HATRED FOMENTED WITHIN? If we do we are ignorant! This is not who we are: people who respect our culture and our obligations to it, and to our nation, and to each other.
The Democrats and their Sympathizing Media haven’t shown much outrage over Antifa and BLM as they wreaked violence, hatred, and destruction all over our country. They haven’t called Antifa out—the group of self-described anarchists, a radical left-wing group of thugs who employ violence and intimidation to advance their beliefs. Nor have they denounced the violence perpetrated by BLM.
ANTIFA hooded and masked, showed up recently at the University of California-Berklely to shut down a “free speech” event hosted by provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, leaving damaged property, fires, and assault victims in their wake. They also violently disrupted a “March 4 Trump” event in March.
They “spent the morning of Inauguration Day lighting trash cans on fire, throwing rocks and bottles at police officers, setting ablaze a limousine, and tossing chunks of pavement through the windows of several businesses.
The Black Lives Matter movement was kindled by two events: the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The legal acquittal verdict in both of these cases sparked massive BLM riots.
Who can forget “Hands up, don’t shoot! What do we want, dead cops; when do we want them, now! Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon!” These may be only words, but it must not be overlooked that unruly Alt-Left protesters shut down major highways, assaulted and seriously injured police with glass bottles, rocks, construction rebar, and smashed and burned public property.
Black Lives Matter’s kill list includes at least 13 cops shot dead and 11 more wounded.
DID THE DEMOCRATS OR THEIR MEDIA CHEER LEADERS SPEND ANY TIME CONDEMNING THOSE EVENTS OR THE OTHERS TOO NUMERABLE TO MENTION HERE?
NO, THEY DIDN’T!
DID DEMOCRATS CALL FOR THE ASSASSINATION OR IMPEACHMENT OF OBAMA WHEN HE DID NOTHING TO ASSUAGE THE BLM RIOTS
—INSTEAD FUELED DISTRUST AND HATRED?
What happened in Charlottesville must not be allowed to happen again. We must condemn all groups that promote violence: whether they be Alt-Right or Alt-Left.
“Let’s call them all out, and not have this selective enforcement mentality rooted in partisan political hackery. If we don’t stop the blatant hypocrisy, which is truly the problem, then we’re sitting on a powder keg — which I believe some wish for.” https://www.allenbwest.com/2017/08/13/ok-folks-heres-really-happened-charlottesville-everyone-missing/
If we do this we can rest assured—
THAT WE HAVE NOT LOST SIGHT OF WHO WE ARE—WE ARE A NATION OF DECENCY!
WE ALL MUST BE UNITED & CONDEMN ALL THAT HATE STANDS FOR. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THIS KIND OF VIOLENCE IN AMERICA. LET’S COME TOGETHER AS ONE!
Guess who said those words— Donald J. Trump
