Am I the only one who is disturbed by the left wing assault on speech and culture by any means necessary? It maybe one of the greatest challenges to the future of America.
The Marxists believed that their cause was so superior that anything they did in its name became justified. As President Reagan put it, they would tell any lie or commit any crime.
They have no hesitation in attacking our Christian heritage by cleansing descriptions on monuments quietly. They are changing school curriculum. Now the extremists among them riot in Berkley to prevent speakers they don’t like, they try to assassinate Republican Congressmen, and celebrities, party officials, and now an elected official even hope or fantasize about killing the President or blowing up the White House. They threaten livelihoods and attempt boycotts on media outlets who don’t toe their line. Antifa believes that they have the right to attack anyone they deem a fascist and have proven they will do so with riots coast to coast, yet the mainstream left doesn’t condemn them, many justify them. The right condemns its extremists. The left sees theirs as the street muscle to stymie their political opposition. That would turn us into Venezuela. They want to shame, intimidate, impoverish or even attack those who have a different point of view. They want censorship of social media.
This must stop. We have to speak against it before we have no opportunity to speak.
Let us remember the words of George Washington. “If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
