We Shall Never SurrenderLeftist blogger Ilissa Gold now believes that conservatives are a dangerous lot from whom liberals must protect themselves:
The violent rhetoric from the right about rising up and overthrowing the government is growing. Republican leaders are actively calling for a “revolution”. Militia activity has been on the rise in the last few years, and is expected to increase with Obama’s presidency.
And while you’d rather think of people like Jim Adkisson shooting up a Unitarian church in Knoxville as an evil aberration, you do have to wonder how many others like him are out there, whose minds have been so poisoned by the violent right-wing rhetoric that they could snap at any moment, and look to take out those whom, again, they perceive as “weaker”.
Our friends on the other side know, of course, that it is intellectually dishonest to compare someone like Mr. Adkisson to any real conservative. Adkisson was using the whole "I need to shoot up a liberal church" excuse to explain his own criminal behavior and lack of a moral compass. Listening to conservative talk radio and television-something that I do with great frequency-in no way gives me a burning desire to walk into a heterodox house of worship and play shoot 'em up with the politically misguided congregants who may be there, and I am a gun owner (As an aside, I know of a few Unitarians who are political conservatives anyway).
For a person to engage in unmerited violent behavior, something else has to be misfiring in the brain aside from merely listening to Rush Limbaugh.
Instead, it would seem that what our liberal friends are afraid of is the reality that conservatives will not take lying down the destruction of our country at the hands of Mr. Obama. While our liberal friends live for their beliefs, we will die for ours should the need arise. The great issue of our time in dealing with the current administration is the reality that while previous presidents of both parties engaged in irresponsible fiscal behavior and social policies, the present occupant of the White House simply does not care in the least about the consequences of playing the CEO to corporations and using taxpayer money to spend the country into oblivion. A ten trillion dollar deficit and a spending spree that will require the printing of literally trillions of dollars in cash that would not be needed if not for the President's insistence upon unneeded spending will likely result in a rate of inflation that will make the 1970's look like the Roaring '20's.
Conservatives will not allow the Left to undermine our sovereignty, ruin our economy, and destroy the last shreds of constitutional government in America. Our friends complain of the evils of the Bush years. We readily acknowledge that the previous President began the disastrous spending trends under which we now labor, but the response of the party opposite seems to be that Bush spending policies were horrible, and so their plan will be to engage in the same sort of policies of federal corporatism and pseudo-socialism multiplied 100 times. Either the party opposite's abilities to make policy are hampered by the reality that the White House is now filled with cabinet and staff whose abilities are akin to amateur hour, or these people really are just that stupid. We can only pray for all of our sakes that the former circumstance is the predominant one.
The survivial of our federal republic is more important than putting on some stadium show, speaking rosy words, and drumming up chants of "yes we can." Winning an election gives no administration, regardless of its political affiliation, a license to destroy the very foundations upon which our forefathers built this country. Conservatives will not allow Mr. Obama, his minions, or his legions to bring this nation to constitutional collapse, and we will use whatever means are necessary to prevent national ruin.
If the Left is afraid that we will not put up with what they are doing to our country and that we will not rest one solitary second until these wicked policies are brought to an end, they have just cause to be very afraid indeed. Every time Mr. Obama so much as opens his mouth, the revolution grows.
We shall never surrender, and we will fight for the right will every fiber of our very beings.
