KOMMONSENTSJANE – WAY PAST TIME TO RESPOND TO THE LEFT.

September 6, 2017 7:47 AM

Oh, boy, do I like this one! Indeed it is WAY PAST TIME that we respond to the demagoguery of the left and since we have always before been timid, they are shocked. As the old saying says, Let them (eat cake), be shocked!! It’s ‘our’ time.

I have no idea who wrote this but I see a lot of truth in it.

Trump’s lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Nevertheless) constantly

 

ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask

 

if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

 

Here’s my answer:

 

We, restraining,  people have tried dignity. There could not have

 

been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered

 

the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined

 

his presidency.

 

We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this

 

earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

 

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

 

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were

 

playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left

 

has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the

 

only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

 

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about

 

Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson

 

in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the

 

Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the

 

deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent

 

film maker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesmanlike”

 

in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents

 

and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no

 

way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

 

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of

 

the Children of the ‘70s. To them, it has been an all-out war where

 

nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has

 

been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence,

 

demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the

 

universities – till today. The problem is that, through these years,

 

the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has

 

been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has

 

continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald

 

Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first

 

wartime president in the Culture War.

 

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t

 

the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses

 

Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him

 

drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln

 

applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the

 

Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln

 

rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

 

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In

 

peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had

 

Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler

 

and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their

 

thousand-year Reich.

 

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like

 

Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated

 

Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastard, I read your book!”

 

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not

 

only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own

 

tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so

 

essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the

 

playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of

 

Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that,

 

he referred to Lucifer as “The First Radical Known To Man.”

 

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is

 

doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead

 

of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have

 

literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years

 

not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet

 

Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of

 

Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

 

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky

 

described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” … Most importantly,

 

Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position.

 

… They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They

 

can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of

 

herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth)

 

and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can

 

double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice

 

their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.)

 

with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the

 

news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

 

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda)

 

that keeps the Left alive Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly

 

and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to

 

foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William

 

Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual

 

mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and

 

accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s

 

weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or

 

his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the

 

murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama

 

administration’s cover-up.

 

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish

 

we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and

 

“dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times.

 

This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without

 

opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this

 

president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be

 

undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights

 

for America!

Onward Christian and all other soldiers who want to save our country from these wicked people.
