17 Apr Can Americans Get Past the Pandemic without a Revolution?
Democrats denounce President Trump’s decision to put a hold on funding the WHO, which has plainly done the bidding of the Chinese Communist Party in public dissembling, and in hiding and covering up the CCP’s lies which aggravated and accelerated the pandemic around the world.
Democrat United States Senator Chris Murphy publicly excuses the CCP and WHO, and blames President Trump for the pandemic.
Democrats and their MSM relentlessly disparage hydroxychloroquine, which is consistently achieving positive results for those afflicted with COVID-19.
Democrat officeholders—such as Governors Newsom of California, Whitmer of Michigan, Cuomo of New York, and Northam of Virginia—are plainly exploiting the pandemic to extend lockdowns, to order businesses as to what they can and can’t sell within their own stores, to take away Second Amendment rights, to give away money to illegal immigrants—increasing victimhood and dependency throughout their jurisdictions, and eviscerating American freedoms without apparently even a pang of conscience.
Democrats leverage the pandemic to push for an all mail-in ballot approach to future elections. No one with an ounce of honesty and objectivity sees mail-in balloting as anything other than a playground for cheating—an open ticket to destroy free elections once and for all.
Democrat Dallas County Commissioner Clay Jenkins announces that because of another seven COVID-19 related deaths in Dallas County, all residents must begin wearing facial coverings in public. That is seven deaths in a county with a population of 2.636 million people. What happens when another seven die—all remaining residents must stay indoors at all times, and food will be rationed and delivered by the government commissar?
Nothing these Democrats are doing points to a desire to solve the pandemic and re-open the economy. Everything points the other direction—block cures, extend economic paralysis and depression, stoke fear and abandon hope of any kind, submit to government authorities.
When does this outrageous overreach end?
What is the Democrat re-opening standard—no one coughs or wipes their nose or is sick or in the hospital ever again?…and until that standard is achieved, nobody can do anything of his or her own volition without permission of their Democrat overlords?
No American patriot wants to see the internal stress test of dealing with a pandemic to bring America to another civil war. But these Democrats are testing patriots’ patience to the breaking point. They just don’t seem to care what they are doing and where it is leading in relation to America’s founding heritage of individual freedom and responsibility under God. They seem to be daring the American people to rebel against them.
They need to be careful of what they wish for. A senior Japanese leader was said to have warned that the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor may have awakened a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.
Democrats of 2020, to the extent they even have any historical knowledge of WWII, may believe that the ‘terrible resolve’ of the American people is reserved only for foreign adversaries. They could not be more dangerously mistaken.
The terrible resolve of the American people can be awakened and activated toward any adversary—foreign or domestic—who would deliberately act without the consent of the people to remove American freedoms.
In the present shelter-in-place environment, the First Amendment right of the people to freely assemble and ‘petition the government for a redress of grievances’ has also been eviscerated. The especially dangerous effect of this de facto banning of public protest is that these Democrat overlords may be wildly underestimating the scope and breadth and intensity of the anger and resolve they are igniting and stoking among the American people.
Lansing, Michigan got a taste of that anger and resolve this week, with a car-based protest surrounding the state capital. Congratulations and thank you to the protesters—but if Michigan’s and other state’s political leaders think Lansing, Michigan is the hotbed of fiery American resolve, they’ve got another major new ‘think’ coming.
We don’t want to see the outbreak of political violence in America. But we have a sense of how the anger and frustration is building among the American people, and we believe the outlet of the November ballot box will not come soon enough to keep it contained. The current course of every-two-weeks-another-extension-of-tyranny-in-the-name-of-‘public health’, with new bells and whistles of control over the people, is long past its shelf life.
Democrats—and politicians of all varieties—had better focus on immediate actions to re-open the economy as their number one priority, with all other distancing and hygiene practices secondary and subservient to that top priority. The infamous terrible American resolve exists, and it knows who and what it is resolved against.
President Trump has now given politicians of both parties and of no party throughout the country the green light to let America live again. As he would say, “Let’s see what happens.”
