It started with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, a progressive, went underground for around fifty years before it once again reared its ugly head and failed ideas with the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society.”
Jonson’s tenure was also a colossal failure. (Source)
Just when some in their party began believing they weren’t stuck on stupid, they are running a Muslim, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, who claims to be uniquely qualified.
He gave notice on Monday in favor of pursuing the state’s highest office on a platform that will be deeply rooted in his values of equity and inclusion.
El-Sayed is not a fan of Trump, and claims citizens of his state are having “buyer’s remorse.”
In a separate interview, he claimed that Trump’s decisions “are at odds with deeply held American values, and distractions from real issues.”
But a Muslims’s would be??
Note, his wife’s name is not mentioned in the article because women are not important in Islam or it was an editorial oversight. (Source)
His smooth talk reminds me of another Muslim from Kenya we the people were fooled into electing.
Bet the house that the progressives are planning to run this guy for president, against Trump if his agenda “To Make America Great Again,” is continuously blocked by progressive obstruction or later when he is a bit wiser.
Remember his name and face, we have not heard the end of him.
April 5th, 2017
This civil war is very different from the last one.
The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans.
It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.
It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama.
It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become “patriotic”.
There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution.
After losing Congress, the left consolidated its authority in the White House.
This isn’t just hypocrisy.
Democrats have become radicalized by the left.
That’s why compromise has become impossible.
Our system of government was designed to allow different groups to negotiate their differences.
Instead it has retreated to cultural urban and suburban enclaves where it has centralized tremendous amounts of power while disregarding the interests and values of most of the country.
But it couldn’t wait that long because it is animated by the conviction that enforcing its ideas is urgent and inevitable.
In the hidden transition, its authority figures had hijacked the law and every political office they held to pursue their ideological agenda.
The left was enormously successful in this regard.
The Democrats were no longer being slowly injected with leftist ideology.
The left responded to democratic defeats by retreating deeper into undemocratic institutions, whether it was the bureaucracy or the corporate media, while doubling down on its political radicalism. It is now openly defying the outcome of a national election using a coalition of bureaucrats, corporations, unelected officials, celebrities and reporters that are based out of its cultural and political enclaves.
It has responded to a lost election by constructing sanctuary cities and states thereby turning a cultural and ideological secession into a legal secession. But while secessionists want to be left alone authoritarians want everyone to follow their laws. The left is an authoritarian movement that wants total compliance with its dictates with severe punishments for those who disobey.
The left describes its actions as principled.
The choices of this civil war are painfully clear.
We can have a system of government based on the Constitution with democratically elected representatives. Or we can have one based on the ideological principles of the left in which all laws and processes, including elections and the Constitution, are fig leaves for enforcing social justice.
But we cannot have both.
Some civil wars happen when a political conflict can’t be resolved at the political level. The really bad ones happen when an irresolvable political conflict combines with an irresolvable cultural conflict.
That is what we have now.
The left has made it clear that it will not accept the lawful authority of our system of government. It will not accept the outcome of elections. It will not accept these things because they are at odds with its ideology and because they represent the will of large portions of the country whom they despise.
The question is what comes next.
The last time around growing tensions began to explode in violent confrontations between extremists on both sides. These extremists were lauded by moderates who mainstreamed their views. The first Republican president was elected and rejected. The political tensions led to conflict and then civil war.
The left doesn’t believe in secession. It’s an authoritarian political movement that has lost democratic authority. There is now a political power struggle underway between the democratically elected officials and the undemocratic machinery of government aided by a handful of judges and local elected officials.
What this really means is that there are two competing governments; the legal government and a treasonous anti-government of the left. If this political conflict progresses, agencies and individuals at every level of government will be asked to demonstrate their allegiance to these two competing governments. And that can swiftly and explosively transform into an actual civil war.
There is no sign that the left understands or is troubled by the implications of the conflict it has initiated. And there are few signs that Democrats properly understand the dangerous road that the radical left is drawing them toward. The left assumes that the winners of a democratic election will back down rather than stand on their authority. It is unprepared for the possibility that democracy won’t die in darkness.
Civil wars end when one side is forced to accept the authority of the other. The left expects everyone to accept its ideological authority. Conservatives expect the left to accept Constitutional authority. The conflict is still political and cultural. It’s being fought in the media and within the government. But if neither side backs down, then it will go beyond words as both sides give contradictory orders.
The left is a treasonous movement. The Democrats became a treasonous organization when they fell under the sway of a movement that rejects our system of government, its laws and its elections. Now their treason is coming to a head. They are engaged in a struggle for power against the government. That’s not protest. It’s not activism. The old treason of the sixties has come of age. A civil war has begun.
This is a primal conflict between a totalitarian system and a democratic system. Its outcome will determine whether we will be a free nation or a nation of slaves.
