What happens when a nation deems a group within it as a scourge on its people? When that group is looked upon with suspicion of an ulterior motive? When a person is labeled as a danger to their neighbor? When the nation is told by their government, their media, their schools, and everyone else in positions of power and prestige that a certain group is out to oppress, silence and intimidate honest citizens? When millions of people are publicly declared as a threat to the very fabric of the nation by their leader? More importantly, just how far will a nation go to defend itself against this perceived “threat”?
If you think I’m referring to something from your history class think again: It’s happening right now as we speak. Here. In the United States of America. It’s no surprise to many Americans that the Left has gained an overwhelming control of the media, our school systems, the government, etc. and has consistently demonized conservatives, specifically white men as a threat to all minority groups! If you believe in merit based achievements, controlled borders and immigration, personal freedoms secured by the Constitution, unbiased elections, a strong military, family values, pride in the country, and many other common sense viewpoints, you are now labeled as bigoted, privileged, backward conspiracy theorists!
For the sheer audacity to want to put America first before foreign interests, you’re “selfish”. For wanting our own citizens to be looked after first before the influx of illegal immigrants clamoring for our resources, you’re “xenophobic”. For wanting to exercise your 2nd amendment rights apparently, that means you don’t care about gun violence are “baby killers”, yet it ought to be a “choice” whether or not to allow them to be born. For being skeptical that TODDLERS can change their gender you’re “transphobic”. Don’t you dare speak up when your child’s school pushes gender ideology or you’re a “domestic terrorist”! For standing up to reverse racism and resisting the label of privileged oppressor, you’re “white fragility” is showing. For calling out cheating in the 2020 election through peaceful protest you’re an “insurrectionist”. A traitor who must be locked up. I could go on and on…
However unsurprising this is to millions of fellow patriots, I will admit that “President” Biden’s speech addressing the “continued battle for the soul of the nation” was an eye-opener:
And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people.
They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.
MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards — backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.
They promote authoritarian leaders, and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.“President” Joe Biden’s speech on “The Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation” given September 1st, 2022
Given against an angry red backdrop, with Marines flanking each side, it looks as if he wanted to come off as a totalitarian dictator instead of the leader of the free world! Our current president made it loud and clear in case it was merely implied: Conservatives are the enemy, a threat to the nation’s very core.
The real question though, is what will they do with this view? As mentioned earlier, just how far would you go to vanquish a perceived enemy? We already have some answers; ostracizing conservatives personally and professionally. Labeling them racist bigots, transphobes, gun nuts, privileged, fragile, insurrectionists, domestic terrorists, traitors. If we’re in a “battle”, then we must be at war. An ideological war. If you read up on US military laws and history, then you know what happens to traitors in times of war. You may also find out just what incendiary speech such as our “president” gave recently can lead to. Here’s a hint: We fought several major wars over it, including one that nearly tore us apart, and one many of our grandparents were in…
In the wake of Biden’s speech, the fallout is no longer merely theoretical. The FBI recently came after Mike Lindell, the MyPillow founder to seize his cellphone as he tried to expose the voting fraud from the 2020 election. A woman named Lisa Gallagher was raided by the FBI literally the day after Biden’s incendiary speech for an anonymous tip saying she was involved in the January 6th “insurrection” terrifying her and her daughter. An open Trump supporter, she was just like millions of us. Just another neighbor. Another mom. Another wife. Another any one of us. The raid on Trump is predictable. Prominent conservatives sadly are harassed as par for the course. However Biden’s words are targeting YOU. You are the threat to the “soul of the nation” for not going woke, for wanting a fair election, for wanting common sense and reason to prevail over hypocritical whims. There are over 71 million of us now officially deemed enemies, to be intimidated, ostracized, even imprisoned.
I leave you with this: We do know just how far a nation can go when a group is deemed the enemy, and no one speaks out to stop it, or the leader spewing animosity and fear against a backdrop of angry red.
