With a little more than a week until the final ballot count of one of the most important elections in our lifetime, the Left’s behavior is becoming even more self-absorbed and anti-American. The 24/7 news cycle has become a constant stream of people on the Left saying and doing things that are completely irrational or 180 degrees different from what they said or did in the past. Many times their irrational behavior is in front of TV Cameras or with a microphone in their face. It appears they do not know that what they say in front of TV cameras or say into a microphone is being recorded? Obviously, these people think that they are immune from ever facing any consequences for their actions. Based on what I see in the 24/7 news cycle their feeling of self- empowerment and belief in a total lack of consequences for their actions has become an epidemic in America. Here are few recent examples:
- The Florida Democratic candidate for governor, Andrew Gillum denied any wrongdoing in any of his actions as the mayor of Tallahassee, Florida. When asked about his interactions with a person who wanted special consideration for developing some property in Tallahassee he flatly denied the allegations and loudly insisted that he had always worked hard and earned everything he ever got. When information was recently made public that the “developer” was an undercover FBI investigator and that Gillum was the subject of an investigation, he loudly denied any wrongdoing and played the “race card”. He continues to deny the allegations even though the information from the investigation, including text messages, e-mails, and other documents, prove that he accepted gifts from the “developer” and approved a potentially lucrative deal for the “developer” in Tallahassee. He continues to play the “race card” publicly and even doubled down with public statements that his Republican opponent is “supported by racist groups”. When asked if he was openly saying that his opponent is racist he said, “no but his support from racist groups proves that the groups think he is”. Gillum is a graduate of an eighteen-month Socialist education program in California funded by George Soros and has never had a job in the public sector. He has been in politics full time since he was 23 years old. Every policy that he advocates in his campaign for governor of Florida confirms that he is a textbook, anti-American Socialist. In spite of all this, the MSM and Democrat Party spokespersons insist that he is going to lead the “blue wave” in Florida on November 6!
- Prominent Democrats, including Obama, Pelosi, and Schumer continue to publicly attack everything President Trump and other Conservatives advocate, like protecting our borders, even though there is an endless stream of recorded media proving that they supported similar policies in the not too distant past when it benefited them personally. Is it really a coincidence that multiple “caravans” with thousands of people participating are attempting to walk thousands of miles with the belief that they are going to be able to cross our southern border and stay in America? In many cases, these people only have the clothes on their back or a small backpack. Where are they getting food, water, clothing, and shelter? Who inspired these “caravans” and who is supporting them? Is it a coincidence that these events are happening now at the same time as one of the most important elections in our lifetime? Prominent Democrats and the MSM are all loudly attacking the Trump Administration for its insistence that these people will not be allowed into America. No one on the Left, including the MSM will admit that the Obama Administration called out the National Guard to try and slow down the flood of illegal immigrants trying to cross our southern border, or that Obama separated children from their parents when they were taken into custody at the border. Is this 180-degree change in the Left’s public positions a true change in their beliefs as to what is good for America?
- There has been an endless stream of people on the Left, including the MSM, using every form of media available calling for a public “push back” against members of the Trump Administration and other Conservatives. In many cases, this call for public “push back” has been specific regarding public assaults against anyone and anything Conservative. The incidences of public verbal assaults, and in some cases physical assaults, against Conservatives, has dramatically escalated since President Trump was elected. In many instances, Conservatives’ family members and their property have been the victims of these assaults. The Left’s call for “push back” against Conservatives has become so viral that it inspired ANTIFA and BLM to reappear in public violent and destructive demonstrations demanding that America become a socialist country. While all these attacks on Conservatives were happening the Left, including the MSM refused to condemn it or even acknowledge it. However, now that prominent members of the Left who publicly advocated violence against everything Conservative are the subject of what appears to be targeted bomb attacks, they loudly blame all the violence on President Trump’s rhetoric. Pelosi and Schumer even issued a joint public statement attacking President Trump’s public statements condemning the current bomb threats against people on the Left. Is it really a coincidence that these (apparently fake) bomb threats are happening this close to the last day of the November 6 mid-term elections? Is President Trump really solely and personally responsible for them?
- When President Trump declared that he was a “Nationalist” in his personal beliefs the Left, including the MSM immediately went viral with the same message. The message was that President Trump just publicly declared that he is a “White Nationalist” and was just choosing to leave off the “White” part of the title in a feeble attempt to be P.C.! None of the textbook definitions of “Nationalist” support the Left’s immediate jump to this conclusion!
As I watched and listened to everything that is happening in America right now it occurred to me that none of it is a coincidence! It looks to me like the Left has decided that they are ready to shred our Constitution and make America be part of their dream of having a “One World Order”. And they can do this after they take over our Government at every level on November 7, 2018! We cannot let that happen! Vote and vote Republican during the November 6 elections!
