What a great piece in National Review. It SHOULD NOT matter what party you are from when the truth is told!
The fact that so many people’s brains are being cooped by the moranic, misinformed, rhetoric of the malcontents, the rabid Left, they can’t see when they are being spoon fed BULLSHIT!
Citizens should be MAD AS HELL! These trucked in, paid terror mobs that are supposed to be protesting George Floyd, unfair treatment by a police department that has been run by Democratic rule for over 40 years, is it any wonder they let a villain still serve on the force with 18 disciplinary actions in his jacket? Only it seems, do we see the violence, for the most part in DEMOCRATIC run cities. Has any news organization, BLM said a word about the Black on Black killings in Chicago last weekend, the weekend before and the weekend before that? I could go on, since Chicago is nothing more than a cesspool like so many other cities that have had to deal with corrupt politicians who promise the world and deliver nothing but an unhealthy way of life!
Think about that when you listen to the garbage most news, celebs, social media are peddling!
We Can’t Let the Outrage Mob Win

“In the face of far-left radicalism, we must hold the line.
‘Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.”
I’ve been thinking a lot about George Orwell’s chilling premonition over the past several weeks, as an ever-growing number of statues, books, movies, television shows, and even food brands have been canceled by the left-wing mob.
Though there is a legitimate debate to be had about Confederate symbols and statues, the mob never intended to stop there. Not even the most heroic of American figures are safe now. Not the father of our nation, George Washington. Not Civil War hero Ulysses S. Grant, who delivered the death stroke to General Lee’s Confederate rebellion. Not Abraham Lincoln, whom Frederick Douglass called a “friend and liberator.” And not Teddy Roosevelt, who in 1905 spoke of the need to “secure to each man, whatever his color, equality of opportunity, equality of treatment before the law.”
As Americans watch this unfold, many might ask: “Am I a bad person for not joining the mob? Have I failed to see the racism and oppression within these long-admired totems of our history? The mob seems so angry, and its anger must be proportionate to its righteousness, right?”
To Americans asking these questions: You are not the problem. The outrage mob is. Its breathless moralizing and anger do not portend reason or good faith, but instead mask deep ignorance and malicious intent.
You see, this isn’t about taking down offensive messages or symbols. These mobs didn’t suddenly stumble upon some forgotten and offensive historical anecdote, or reach their wits’ end after seeing Aunt Jemima on the grocery-store shelf just one too many times. No, this was a deliberate hijacking of a tragedy. The touchy sympathies of “political correctness” were always just a base from which to launch a cultural revolution, a purge of traditional American narratives and icons.
It’s about time we all woke up to it.
Liberals, naively tolerant of the mob, are always the first victims. Eager to appear as progressive allies, they give inch after inch until they’ve completely compromised the values they claim to stand for. Conservatives tried to warn our liberal friends. We tried to tell them that decades of identity politics and increasing flirtation with far-left ideology would end up here. Now, they have been trampled over completely by radical progressives, purged from the New York Times opinion section, from academia, and from Congress.
The good news is that it’s not too late. It’s never too late, not so long as good and decent people remain standing and willing to do something. There are a lot of us who love this great country, believe in the promise of its Founding, and aren’t keen on letting a mob rip it apart. All we have to do is speak out. We must hold the line and demand that our elected leaders stop allowing their cities to burn, that corporate America stop caving to Twitter hordes and becoming complicit in the cultural destruction, and that our educators stop teaching our kids that America is evil.
America is good. In fact, it’s great. The Fourth of July is right around the corner, marking the day in 1776 that our Founders signed their death warrant and became hunted traitors of the Crown so that we could live freer and more prosperous than any other group of people in human history.
The mob wants to erase the American dream. We can’t let that happen.”
