Over at the American Thinker today there is a post by Eric Utter noting that Poll shows most Americans believe other Americans are biggest threat. This is not good.Look, AOC and her fantasy that somehow other members of Congress want to kill her is dangerous stuff, and she sounds unhinged. Oh, and what about the notion that somehow Trump supporters were planning riots in all 50 state capitols? To my knowledge, there was never any chatter to that effect. None, zero, nada. The FBI made if up out of whole cloth, if indeed it was the FBI who provided that intelligence. Here's the pull quote:
There is no way America as founded can survive if elite progressives/leftists/statists comprising the vast government-Big Tech-academic-media complex have their way. Specifically, they wish to marginalize, silence-- and possibly eliminate-- those with whom they disagree. Unity is not possible when one large group of people in a society believe another large group of people in that society are a threat to their beloved power and control and therefore must be neutralized at all costs.
America is more divided than at any time since the Civil War, and in some ways more so. There are certain things that can never be reconciled on this earth, such as oil and water, fire and ice, good and evil. Those who wish for a massive government nanny state that knows best how to run everyone else’s lives are simply incompatible with those who yearn to be free and believe in America’s founding principles of limited government of, by, and for the people, the rule of law, freedom of speech and assembly, the right to bear arms, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, etc. Put another way, those who detest the country as founded obviously cannot live in peace and harmony with traditional patriots. And, as we have seen this past year, there are now enough of the former to make this an immediate, existential crisis.It pains me to realize that so many people whose ancestors came to this country for the freedom and liberty this country was founded to provide have turned their backs on it. Their ancestors came here to be their best selves, something they could not be in the old country they left. And now their children and grand children want to turn this country into the old one. How sad.
