There was a time that would have been a totally unfair question. But politics have changed a lot in the last few decades.
Increasingly, the political class on the left, in their quest for aligning with their globalist allies (like Soros and others) have taken positions that are contrary even to their own past statements.
Even positions they once held as being in ‘the national interest’ are positions they collectively demonize.
We got a good look at that in the last State of the Union Address, remember?
Even moments that ought to have been unifying, and celebrating America generally were moments that Pelosi looked like she was going to swallow her teeth, and everyone on the Left was careful to sit on their hands for the entire speech.
Record levels of employment among women and minorities? Stone silence.
The story about the Korean man who made it to freedom? Nothing.
Standing for the Anthem? They didn’t DARE agree with him on that one.
Defeating ISIS? No? Not even there?
Surely they would take a moment and honor the parents of two teenage black girls from New York who were bludgeoned to death by MS-13?
Not a word. And those parents noticed.
So what DO Pelosi and Co. get excited about?
You know those same gang members that murdered those fifteen and sixteen year old girls who were doing nothing more than walking home after dark? The gang whose slogan is reportedly “rape, control, kill”?
The left got worked up about Trump calling people that use knives rather than guns because the victims suffer longer ‘animals’.
No wonder their critics came back with responses like this:
They back ‘sanctuary cities’ despite the cries of their own citizens for the rule of law to be obeyed and enforced.
They shed tears for Palestinian ‘protesters’ despite proof that Hamas is financially incentivizing them to be shot and killed by Israelis… while denouncing ‘evil’ Israel.
They defend the Iran Deal, despite how it Iran has destabilized the region and waged proxy wars among its neighbors.
Even saying ‘rule of law’ is now offensive to some of these people.
It really is becoming either-or.
After all, they’re supporting a Mueller witch-hunt that is increasingly shown to be founded on lawless actions taken by the previous administration, and Mueller’s investigation itself is unconstitutional.
The Bernie-bros who want to Make America Venezuela…And the blue-hair-brigade ‘intersectional feminists’ who want to burn down instutions wholesale, and replace them with, what, feelings (?)… are the ones really steering the Democrat Party.
Will they ever come back to supporting what used to be called ‘Traditional American Values’?
They would need a serious course correction before we could have two parties who could both look at the flag with the same respect again.
So Until then, as the Midterm elections rise on the horizon, we ask you:
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.
Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.
That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.
There’s a men’s version…
And a women’s version, too…
Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
