Regular patriotic Americans stood up to the Obama administration, not by screaming and berating Democrat politicians, but by looking inside their own houses, their own traditional place within the Republican Party. After years of being told through campaign literature and promises, the Republican Party once again claimed it stood for the Constitution, for free markets and limited government. When the Tea Party drew up to challenge those Republicans who never practiced what they preached, they were castigated by the media and the Republican Party leadership as miscreants, as extremists, and were laughed at as, “hobbits” who should return to “Middle Earth.”
I’m sure any day now John McCain, R-Ariz. (F, 32%) will blast the resistance movement in similar fashion, right?
Don’t count on it. What McCain misunderstood back in 2010 was that the hobbits were the good guys. It is more likely McCain and his ilk will see the current resistance movement as good, right, and pure because what they want is what any big government politician wants: more government.
Yet the resistance movement is improperly named, just like the “Affordable” Care Act. The people blasting Republican members of Congress at town hall meetings aren’t resisting government, they are demanding more. They should be treated as what they are: a mob of Orcs, a group of destroyers of the Constitution and American Exceptionalism.
The Tea Party went to Republican town halls and said, “we want government out of our lives,” and “we want you to adhere to the Constitution.” They said, “we want less government, limited government, so we can have freedom and liberty.” The destroyers, however, are saying to the Republican politicians, “your job is to control the people, don’t stop doing your job.” They say, “give us more government, more handouts, more welfare, more taxes, more regulation,” anything less makes them scream, “you suck!”
The destroyers are resisting the Constitution, using it and the Declaration of Independence as toilet paper. Any similarities drawn between the two uprisings is the difference between constitutionalism and anarchy, between capitalism and communism, as my friend Mark Levin would say: between liberty and tyranny.
The destroyers claim that they are, “We the People.” But they are not the people the Constitution was formed to govern. We are witnessing the destroyers demand anarchy and lawlessness. When Ben Franklin said, “a republic, if you can keep it,” he was talking about right now.
As former Tea Party members sit back and think their work is done by electing Trump who promised, “only I can fix,” conservatives are rightly frustrated. Complacency and reports of “fake news” has put up walls between Tea Party activists who believed saving the country was a sprint instead of a marathon, and dogged conservatives who rightly reject nationalism yet see a desperate need for coalition.
And the problem is that this complacency if continued, it will supplant conservative influence on Republican legislators. The destroyers aren’t looking inside their own house, going to the Democrats and demanding they, “do their job,” they are going after the traditional weakest link. The Republicans who want to go along to get along — the ones who traditionally have no — spine will likely fall for the tactics of the far Left, as they per usual, want to, “give the people what they want.” As we have learned in lesson after painful lesson these past years, for some spineless Republicans, their ideology is not that far off from the goals of the Left.
Yet people on the side of right wonder, “what is it the resistance movement is protesting?” The marches included a thousand different issues, the uncoordinated mobs had every cause represented from transgender rights to population control and climate hoax extremists. They are protesting America as founded. They are protesting biological truth. They are protesting God. They are protesting individuality. They are protesting private property. They are protesting capitalism. They are arguing for Fascism and Socialism and Communism.
Fascism is government control of private enterprise; they are arguing for that, not against it. The Tea Party argued against it, causing headaches for Republican members who believed the Left’s big lie that government can and should control the markets. The Tea Party mobilized in every state to stop crony capitalism, stop government from picking private business winners and losers, and stop government from playing favorites with “public-private” partnerships. Many Tea Partyers lost their way when Trump ran for president, because he too agreed with the left-winger belief that government should pick the winners and losers. Those Tea Partyers must come back and face the fact that there must be a stark difference between us and the destroyers of truth, so that spineless Republicans won’t cause more damage to the republic.
Socialism and its logical conclusion — Communism — is represented by Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. (F, 17%) and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. (F, 18%) and is now mainstream in the Democrat Party. What has socialism gotten us? Social Security is bankrupt, as it the entire federal government, yet they want more. We had to put up massive resistance as Tea Partyers to stop Republicans from expanding Medicaid, yet several states ran by Republicans did it anyway. Doing so probably cemented Obamacare forever. Tea Partyers rightly said, “stop giving more, stop spending, you are breaking our backs!” You will never hear a destroyer say that, ever.
No, the destroyers, the mob of Orcs aren’t the same as the Tea Party. There is a war on for the direction of this nation, and it is not over after one election, or ten elections. We are being called to the carpet by the Founders of this great nation to keep a republic. Tea Partyers can’t sit around and wait while these destroyers are claiming they are the same as the Tea Party, as if all they have to do is demand and viola, two years later the Democrats sweep Congress. Tea Partyers have to recognize the Democrat Party is a Fascist/Socialist/Communist party, and that they are resisting America. We have to convince regular Americans that the resistance movement is out to destroy America, because that is what they are trying to do.
