There are no areas in which liberals, progressives, leftists, socialists, or whatever they want to call themselves this week, are working for the betterment of American citizens or to advance the cause of individual liberty.
Their entire existence appears to be just the opposite. That’s why they must be destroyed.
Rush Limbaugh, if I remember correctly, used to talk about wanting to keep a few liberals around so future generations could see that they were once real. That was in the 90s, when they still had a grasp on reality. Seems quaint now.
Now it’s as if those liberals never existed. Nancy Pelosi’s city is overrun with feces and used hypodermic needles as illegal aliens flood her state. She doesn’t see disaster, or even a problem, she sees what she’d like to bring everywhere.
To that end, Democrats are moving to destroy the ideas that make up America; everything that makes the United States worth defending.
It’s not just the so-called “Green New Deal,” the Marxist dream packaged as the answer to imaginary problems and pushed by the buck-toothed, bug-eyed Freshman Congresswoman from New York, it’s every concept they’re advocating.
A concept like eliminating cow farts and planes would have been treated like the joke it is just 5 years ago, now it’s gospel with millions of devotees. Monetary benefits for people “unwilling to work” would’ve gotten a politician run out of town, just as blatantly lying about it would have. Now a throne-sniffing media and presidential hopefuls treats its author like she’s the giver of light and not the incompetent narcissist who’s lucky breathing is a reflex because she’d forget how to do it that it she is.
Democrats preach tolerance while celebrating the hatred of Israel. They award themselves the mantle of “champions of women” while one of their own is credibly accused of rape. They actively cheer legalizing infanticide, then deny the did it. They decry racism while backing off calls for the resignations of 2 statewide officials with a history of painting themselves in blackface.
Does anyone believe Ralph Northam was a dance contest champion for moonwalking with a little shoe polish on his cheeks? Does anyone believe Mark Herring was huge rap fan in 1980 while not living in New York City? Only the same people who believe Elizabeth Warren – a woman so white, her camouflage in a snow storm is nudity – lost family members on the Trail of Tears. Which is to say no one.
Everything Democrats are is a lie, everything the advocate for is cover for those lies. And everything they are pushing is the antithesis of what made this country the beacon of liberty for the world.
I don’t know why they hate liberty, I don’t know why they seek to make this country like those people flee to come here, I just know that they do. And I know they must be stopped.
But stopping them isn’t an option; they can’t be stopped. They’re like the Terminator – they will not stop. They can only be vanquished, destroyed. And destroyed they must be.
Since there is unlikely to be an industrial sized hydraulic press in which to smash them, destroying them is going to take a little more work. They have to be exposed.
We can no longer count on the insanity of their words and actions to turn people off. The “Green New Deal” resolution read like an authoritarian kindergartener’s letter to Santa Claus, yet it was greeted by adults who should know better as important and serious. We’re too far removed from the horrors of communism in the Cold War for those lessons to resonate with voters, we’re too deep into an education system indoctrinating a generation into believing collectivism works and government is the only entity capable of delivering opportunity. Too many people believed elected leaders when they said the system was rigged against them, that there’s no point in trying.
Young people expect government to protect them, to parent them, to provide. They’ve been conditioned to despise success; envy and entitlement have supplanted the American Spirit. Liberalism has gone from being a contrary philosophy to being an evil.
It’s not enough to beat it an election or two, it must be thoroughly decimated. If it is not destroyed, it will win. If it wins, it’s over.
When addressing how to pay for the government assuming the role of providing so much in the name of saving the planet, the “Green New Deal” simply declares, “At the end of the day, this is an investment in our economy that should grow our wealth as a nation, so the question isn’t how will we pay for it, but what will we do with our new shared prosperity.”
There is no lie too big to tell and no shortage of people conditioned and willing to believe it. You can’t “compromise “with that, you must destroy it before it destroys you.

If you are of the mind that President Trump is to blame for everything wrong and wacky in our politics, then last week was a very bad week for you.
The evidence begins with Trump’s very good State of the Union speech, where he was alternately conciliatory toward Democrats and ruthless in contrasting his policies with theirs.
Reckless in their rhetoric and resistance, Dems make themselves vulnerable to charges that they support open borders, socialism and infanticide.
It doesn’t help that a lasting image of the speech was the women-in-white brigade scowling throughout, rising enthusiastically only to celebrate the president’s recognition of them.
For more proof that Trump is not the root of all madness, consider the spectacles Dems created in two states.
Start with Virginia, where the governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general — all Democrats — spent the week ducking calls to resign. Hypocrisy ran wild, with the AG among the first to call for the governor to quit over a blackface scandal, then being forced to admit he was guilty of the same offense as a teenager.
Meanwhile, the lieutenant governor was rocked by two sexual-assault allegations, with both women publicly identifying themselves and telling their stories.
Given the left’s casual use of the words “racist” and “rapist” to describe Trump, leftists everywhere felt heat to sacrifice the three Virginia officials, lest they forfeit the right to weaponize those words again.
There was, however, a problem with such purity, for it would mean a Republican, the head of the state’s House of Delegates, would become governor. Confident that partisanship would prevail over principle, all three misbehaving Dems were refusing to go.
There was also another complication: the lieutenant gov is black, and how would it look if he had to resign, and the two white men who wore blackface kept their jobs? Live by identity politics, die…
New York Dems, meanwhile, proved they, too, are capable of screwing things up without Trump’s help.

Income-tax revenues are falling off a cliff, while hiring and spending continue to climb.
City spending has soared by some 25 percent since 2014, including a planned $3 billion hike this year — even as income-tax collections are declining by nearly $1 billion.
The state projects its income-tax collections will decline by $2.3 billion, or about 4 percent, just as politicians begin their annual budget binge. Already the state plans to spend $176 billion, an increase of nearly 4 percent.
By the way, Florida, with a million more people, manages to get by with spending just $89 billion — and without a state income tax.
As the late economist Herb Stein once said of such imbalances: “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.” Yet Frick and no-Frack, Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo, show no signs of stopping, instead hoping that a tweak here and there will be enough to keep their tax-and-spend scams afloat.
De Blasio touted “cuts” to spending — despite the $3 billion projected increase! Many more “cuts” like that and the city will go bankrupt.
Despite the high spending, there is a noticeable decline in the quality of life, and the subways are falling apart. What happens when lean times come?
For his part, Cuomo continues to falsely claim that the new federal tax law is the source of Albany’s troubles. In fact, he took office in 2011 declaring “New York has no future as the tax capital of the nation.”
Eight years later, it still is, but now he latches onto a convenient scapegoat in the limit of $10,000 in state and local taxes that can be used to offset federal taxes. While the new limit surely plays a role, it can’t be responsible for the entire $2.3 billion decline in tax collections that suddenly appeared.
By one calculation, the state would have to lose 16 percent of taxpayers earning over $500,000 to reduce income taxes by that amount.
Cuomo also likes to blame cold weather for why higher-income families flee his clutches. Oh, it’s the climate all right — the high tax, anti-business climate that is making the state No. 1 in having its residents leave for other states.
If officials wanted to make New York more attractive, they would cut taxes and regulations, as Trump did in Washington with great success. Instead, Cuomo and de Blasio keep piling on new ones, creating more reasons to head for the exits.
For example, Cuomo’s plan for congestion pricing in Manhattan is a tax by another name. Taxis and ride-share vehicles already were hit with a surcharge, and passage of the new plan could mean hikes of $11 a day or more for personal cars and $25 for delivery trucks.
The tax-climate issue is clear in the fight over a plan for Amazon to build part of its second headquarters in Queens. Whatever advantages the city and state offer, it was the $3 billion in tax credits and grants that sealed the backroom deal.
Opponents, delighted by a report that Amazon is having second thoughts, blast the incentives as a giveaway to a company that doesn’t need them, and they are right. But they are wrong in failing to understand that, without the incentives, Amazon probably wouldn’t consider New York.

Cuomo’s claim that the company, with its spending and hiring, will make the deal pay off for the public over time is questionable. But one thing is certain: In the short run, those who pay taxes will pay for the giveaways to Amazon. That includes the small businesses who compete with Jeff Bezos’ monolith.
‘Green nanny’ polsThe Green New Deal proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others is being shredded because the real costs are incalculable while the benefits would be negligible.
Yet less noted is what the plan says about its 70 congressional sponsors. Their demand that we totally change how we live, what we eat and how we travel reveals a total disdain for America and Americans.
If they hate everything about us, why do they want to run our lives? And why would we ever let them?
One fowl abort ironyReader Sarah Dilorenzo spots confusion. She writes: “I’m a mom, grandma and anti-abortion advocate and the nine-month abortion law really angered me. Then I saw that a councilwoman wants to outlaw foie gras because you have to force-feed the goose. She said it was cruel and inhuman.
“I love animals, but how can we kill fully formed human babies, and care more about a goose? Something is very wrong with these liberal Democrats.”
