We all know that Democrats and the left love to operate on the premise of “never let a good crisis go to waste.” But now, as the midterm elections are looming before them, they are working off of another cliche: make hay while the sun shines.
Translation: silence your opponents before they hand you a historic butt-whoopin’.
The latest event the left is working off of is the unfathomable shooting at a Buffalo, New York grocery store last week. Ten people were killed for doing nothing but making an innocent trip to the store.
But for Democrats, it became midterm election gold. Look no further than the latest completely deranged segment on MSNBC, replete with calls to “jail” people who share “misinformation” and to designate the Republican Party as a “domestic terrorist” group.
In his book, “Rules for Radicals,” the Godfather of community organizing and radicalism, Saul Alinsky, wrote about 13 basic rules that progressives must follow if they are going to “create change.” More translation here: stir it up.
Alinsky saved the best rule for last because it is the easiest and most often used rule by the left: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
And in the wake of this horrific shooting, you needn’t look any further to what the left is attaching rule 13 to, the Republican Party, or more precisely, people who don’t agree with them.
Recently on her MSNBC show “Deadline,” former Bush Press Secretary and Iraq war apologist Nicolle Wallace had a talking head named Erroll Southers on. The two of them, no longer trying to hide it, explained exactly what the next step in the plan is.
That is apparently to designate (presumably the government?) the entire Republican Party as the “domestic terrorist party.”
But then they took it one step further. Carl Cameron, formerly of Fox News and affectionately known as “campaign Carl” for his election coverage, said the quiet part out loud. It bothered no one on the panel, and received no pushback.
“It really is kind of horrible to think that journalists with national and international capacity are putting together this type of nonsense. I think the president did a great job. I wish he had done a lot of this a lot sooner, and we need a lot more from the left and the middle, and we got to watch out because the Republicans have become the purveyors of misinformation, and when our two-party system is broken like that, democracy is seriously in trouble. The president acknowledged that it’s time to actually start doing things and maybe taking some names and putting people in jail.”
Just so we are all on the same page, and everyone understands what we are talking about, these people are discussing on live television the idea of putting Americans in jail for their political beliefs. This is a serious discussion they are having.
Again, to be clear, these lunatics are openly discussing labeling one half of American citizens domestic terrorists, and putting people in jail for having the wrong opinions. And they are deadly serious about it.
We can use some cliches of our own here, but it would behoove us to pay attention to them.
Old cliche number 1: ‘Desperate people do desperate things.’ It is where the Democrat Party is today, throw in ‘time is running out.’
Number 2: we laugh at them at our own peril. Republicans have a history of underestimating their opponents. We cannot this time.
And number 3: When someone says they are going to wipe you off the map, believe them and act accordingly.
They have absolutely no fear about saying these things out loud. We ignore them at our own peril.
Watch what Carl Cameron said here:
