Independence Day, Can We Keep It?
As Americans, we see that the focus of the rising tempo of incivility in our public discourse has moved from politics to issues of culture and we must ask why? Well, it’s because for America, the political arguments have already been settled although one side won’t admit it. It’s settled because of our Constitution which gives us our inalienable rights. The defense of that document has risen exponentially to the assault on it.
The great struggle now, between constitutionalists and the marxists has morphed into the cultural arena that avoids the distasteful facts of logic, truths and law, those trivial little items that impede their move to socialism. Its tenants, protected by “political correctness,” allows PC proponents to range widely in their destructive process of changing America’s culture, if not its laws, before the people could catch on. It almost worked, then along came Trump!
Political Correctness is the hand-maiden of diversity, multiculturalism, socialism, fascism and communism. It is the vehicle used to change our cultural norms. For example, once, the important emphasis taught in school was on the proper use of the English language. After the Civil Rights law era, It was abandoned as a requirement specifically because of diversity, inclusiveness and multiculturalism. Some couldn’t or wouldn’t understand it. Today, our language is a mishmash of Babel. That’s only one aspect of the Lefts hidden attack on Americas exceptionalism. If they can’t read or write, they’re going nowhere. That applies to all races.
Political correctness requires no authority, it survives on the precept of exclusion and fear. It exists solely on what “group think” determines to be correct and uses the power of the mob, whether its the media or the Hollywood Leftists, or the street thugs like Antifa and BLM, to challenge, almost daily, our Presidents authority. It is this fear that keeps us everyday, working class Americans in check because our side doesn’t do what they do. We are constitutionalists and expect the rule of law to function. We relay on debate and persuasion to make our choices and we are not prepared, yet, to bash heads.
For the Left, political correctness denies the “free exercise clause” unless it’s for them alone. That requires disciplined adherence to group think or blind allegiance, and to disagree with them, is to invite the wrath of the Lefts public approbation like the rejection Kayne West is now experiencing for his apostasy.
The theater of the street, now extended into the dining rooms of public restaurants, has become the stage for the Lefts threatening noisy attacks on constitutionality and civility. Screaming over the objections of others and drowning out other opinions is the Lefts only way to stay relevant. They intend to paralyze the process by division and political polarization and until Trump, they were succeeding. That being the case, how does the once successful union of American politics and culture survive in the future? Apparently it won’t. The Left is engaged in an all or nothing battle to kill our independence and move us into the common ranks of a one world government.
To be in politics is because those are paying jobs, even if it costs more to get the job then the job pays. There’s a contradiction there, surely? But, with the job however, comes the reward of legitimate authority, until the next election. Since the authority gifted by elections is essential to the Lefts agenda, they will take all steps necessary to ensure the Left does not lose those elections. So far, it’s not workings quite well as as they had hoped. It’s our Independence day, not theirs. So enjoy it. It’s Independence Day, not July 4th. Let’s try to keep it.
Remember, Freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
