Bandolero is aghast and distraught over recent events. People who engaged in rioting and vandalism in the Capitol are called criminals who engaged in an insurrection. People who engaged in rioting and vandalism in Seattle and New York are called protesters who engaged in free speech. Videos of the activities of both are virtually indistinguishable other than for their location. Incredibly, the actions at the Capitol are blamed on President Trump and senators who voted against the certification of the Electoral College votes that made the election of Joe Biden finally official. Painting the senators as seditionists exposes the height of arrogance, imperiousness, pretentiousness, and superciliousness the left has achieved. Video of what President Trump said does not reveal the incitement that’s alleged. We’re witnessing the unmasking of the leftist juggernaut. Having taken the presidency and emasculated the Senate, the left has pulled out all the stops in furtherance of their goal of eradicating conservatism by equating it with sedition, insurrection, and treason. If you disagree with them, then you are a terrorist. If you disagree with them, then you are not exercising your right to free speech, you are inciting insurrection, sedition, and terrorism. If you disagree with them you should be prosecuted as a criminal and imprisoned; or, perhaps, sent to a camp in Alaska for “re-training”.
We listened to President-elect Biden claim that his “over-arching goal” is to unify the country. But, when we listened to the rest of his remarks, it was obvious that he considers “unification” to be the silencing of conservatism. What he meant was, “The country will be unified when the conservatives surrender.” If you oppose the Green New Deal, you’ll be labeled a Nazi, a fascist, an insurrectionist, a terrorist. In fact, go ahead and try to oppose the Green New Deal! You won’t find an effective platform from which to do so, because your words will be deemed to violate “civil norms”, and you will be barred from the platform.
We just heard that the Democrats are referring to what’s coming as “transformative change”. Indeed. They have their sights set on transforming the United States from capitalism to socialism, or perhaps communism. Things are certainly going to get interesting. The initiation of a new war on terror is under way, but the “terror” is the voice of opposition which is the voice of the Constitution. Buckle up and prepare to say “good-bye” to it.
