I have often heard conservative commentators remark that conservatives think that the progressives are wrong-headed, however, progressives think that conservatives are evil. Unfortunately for progressives, it has created a situation where they seem to believe that it is honorable to do and say evil in confronting what they believe are the evil Conservatives. Conservatives may continue to argue with facts, logic and compassion, but their words fall on deaf and angry ears from those who believe that Conservatives are the manifestation of evil.
How else can you explain the reactions against the Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh? Last week, Hillary Clinton spoke at a convention for the American Federation of Teachers in Pittsburgh, with menacing eyes and a stern strong voice, saying she once believed that his confirmation would take us back to the 1950s, but now believes that our rights will be rolled back to the 1850s. Her declaring the 1950s as the throwback puts us in a time before Roe v. Wade and abortion were illegal or frowned upon by society. From the left’s viewpoint, crushing the life out of a women’s unborn child is not only a mothers right worthy of celebration, but it is proper to take property (tax dollars) from those who view this action as murder by funding such organizations as Planned Parenthood who are deeply involved in abortion.
Of course, those who object to killing and theft as a method of birth control and call for a policy of “right to life” are labeled as stupid, misogynist and evil. She is clearly implying that Justice Kavanaugh will not only end all man-created rights for women, but also, implied by her reference to the 1850s, will bring back slavery. Does she really believe that a Kavanaugh court would repeal the 13th Amendment to the Constitution which states, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” We are either very blessed by not having an insane Hillary Clinton as President, or she believes her lies are justifiable because she is simply doing evil to fight evil. It is shameful that such a decent, well-qualified man is subject to such slander. In addition to his many community involvement activities, every week he has coached children’s sports and volunteered for Catholic charities to feed the homeless. Hillary clearly lacks the moral authority to make her pronouncements on such a fine man.
While in college, student Hillary Clinton did her thesis on Saul Alinsky, author of the tactical guide book currently being used by the Progressive Left, “Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals.” This guide promotes disgusting and immoral tactics that were not inspired by our Creator-given unalienable rights. Instead, it’s dedication states, “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
Recently, we have seen the adoption of Alinsky tactics in the recent Congressional hearings with FBI agent Peter Strzok by the faux outraged Democrats. Strzok was smirking while Democrats were attempting to block his testimony. The actions are nearly endless. Listen to almost any statement by Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris or Maxine Waters.
Liberty and freedom are very fragile things. The words and actions of our political leadership in recent weeks do not serve those principles well. Creating FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) serves the extremes of totalitarianism and anarchy more than that noble vision upon which our nation was created.
