NOTE: At some point, before bed, I read through 50+ news sources and share my findings here. If you like it, share it. If you don’t, share it. Subscribe to my blog now to support my work or to find new reasons to complain about it. My opinions are my own.
The War and Hate Against Conservatives
This is not imagined.
This is real.
Conservatives (aka Trump Supporters) are being targeted.
Once targeted they will be further vilified, or worse.
I am sharing a handful examples of this.
There are more, much more, I could have included.
Pray for America. Its not what it used to be.
HUNT TRUMP SUPPORTERS IN THE MILITARY
RedState says, “DOD Uses Witch-hunt for Extremists to Set the Stage for a Purge of Conservatives from the Military.” To quote:
The allegation, provided without a shred of empirical evidence that the US military is overrun by hate groups and extremists, has been made for weeks. Here’s a sampling from just the past month:
- Politico. The military has a hate group problem. But it doesn’t know how bad it’s gotten.
- WBUR (Boston NPR). Extremism In The Military And How To Root It Out
- Defense One. How to Root Out Extremism in the U.S. Military
- Military Times. The military knows it has a problem with domestic extremists, white supremacists
- New York Times. Pentagon Accelerates Efforts to Root Out Far-Right Extremism in the Ranks
But the degree to which this narrative foretold future events became evident when the FBI was permitted to perform background checks, including reviews of social media, of the 20,000 or so National Guardsmen called up to defend Joe Biden’s Washington, DC, against some imagined threat (more Security Theater, like the predicted attacks on state capitols).
THE CASE FOR DRONE STRIKING TRUMP SUPPORTERS
Post Millennial reported, “Watch: MSNBC anchor casually suggests killing American citizens with drone strikes” Here is a quote from the video:
“There is until the end of April, a persistent threat of domestic extremism, domestic terrorism, carried out in the ideology and around this belief that the election was fraudulent, that the COVID restrictions are unnecessary, all of those pushed ideologies by Donald Trump,” Wallace said.
“We had a policy, and it was very controversial, it was carried out under the Bush years and under the Obama years, attacking terrorism at its root, of going after and killing, in the case of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American, with a drone strike, for the crime of inciting violence,” Wallace went on to suggest.
UNLEASH THE FBI AGAINST TRUMP SUPPORTERS
Gateway Pundit reported, “FBI Visited Home of Trump Supporter Who Was Working in DC, But Did Not Even Attend the Rally.” To quote:
The FBI visited the home of Trump supporter Noel Fritsch, formerly of Big League Politics, for being in DC on January 6 — even though he was no where near the rally or subsequent takeover of the Capitol Building.
Fritsch says that the agents harassed his pregnant wife and attempted to intimidate her, while she was home alone with their four young children.
Speaking to the Gateway Pundit, Fritsch said that while he was in DC, he was miles away from the action. “I was at my laptop working. I work in conservative politics against Mitch and McCarthy trying to elect Tea Party and MAGA candidates to help the Trump Agenda,” he explained.
CHECK THE BANK RECORDS OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS
Bank of America turned over names to FBI despite zero evidence of crimes. Just being suspected as a Trump supporter was enough. Tucker Carlson reported this. Click here to watch the video (before its taken down by YouTube.) You can also read the transcript here.
WHENEVER POSSIBLE FIRE TRUMP SUPPORTERS
If possible, deprogram the minds of Trump supporters so they think correctly
David Atkins, a regional director for California Democrats, posted a tweet on Tuesday asking how to “deprogram 75 million people” who watch Fox News and, presumably, voted for President Trump in the 2020 election. He compared the task to what was done in “post-WWII Germany or Japan.”
“No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people? Where do you start? Fox? Facebook?” Atkins asked. “We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan. Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South.”
“This is not your standard partisan policy disagreement. This is a conspiracy theory fueled belligerent death cult against reality & basic decency,” he continued. “The only actual policy debates of note are happening within the [D]em coalition between left and center left.”
Some leftists think a “Reality Czar” should be in charge of correcting misinformation. You know, for the good of the country, people should not have the wrong thoughts or opinions. If they do, they might have to be tracked and collected and arrested for thoughtcrimes.
If Trump supporters (aka “Extremists”) meet online, dismantle their communications
So in the world of extremists and conspiracy theorists that I follow, there’s been a kind of frantic mass migration from big platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as those platforms crack down on misinformation and hate speech. A lot of the biggest figures in that world — including groups like the Proud Boys and QAnon conspiracy theorists — have moved onto more private platforms, where there’s less danger of getting deplatformed.
So there’s now this debate about whether it’s good that all these unsavory characters from the dregs of the internet are disappearing from big social platforms, or whether it’s dangerous to have them congregating in spaces where researchers, journalists and law enforcement can’t keep tabs on them as easily.
When all else fails, physically attack Trump supporters
A video tweeted by Fox5’s Paul Makarushka shows a large group of Antifa counter-protesters attempting to surround a group of Trump supporters. One man is seen waving an Antifa flag over the head of one of the Trump supporters. Another can be seen wielding a baseball bat.
I could go on…
I think you get the picture. By all means, do not rely solely on my research. Look into the matter for yourselves and I think you will recognize that there is a lot of harassment and violence towards conservatives is being under-reported in the mainstream media. Indeed, lots of it has been sparked by people in power. A few examples from notable politicians and Washington elites (HT: The Federalist):
- In 2018, Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California said on MSNBC that if Trump fired special counsel Robert Mueller, there would be “widespread civil unrest” as people would “take to the streets.”
- Cory Booker said to “get up in the face of some congresspeople“
- Hillary Clinton said, said “you can’t be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for.”
- Rep. Maxine Waters called on her supporters to publicly confront and harass members of the Trump administration. She later doubled down on her rhetoric on a MCNBC interview.
- Eric Holder said, told liberal activists that Michelle Obama was wrong; “When they go low, we go high. No. No. When they go low, we kick them.”
- Senator Jon Tester said that in order to take on Trump, you have to “punch him in the face”
- Michigan Rep. Cynthia Jones explicitly urged her supporters to attack Trump Supporters saying, “make them pay.”
I looked for examples from the left and especially prominent Democrats who disavowed the violent speech. When I did, I saw reports that this had been going on for awhile. I also noticed that most of the hate came from the leadership and not from the everyday American people who do not eat, drink and breathe politics all day, every day. I found that encouraging.
It suggests to me that most people on the left (Democrats specifically) hear the negativity and dismiss it as political theater to motivate votes and social activism. They get the intent of what’s being said but do not mindlessly take torches and pitchforks in hand to hunt Republicans in the streets. The vast majority of Democrats I have found, are decent people of conscience with a passionate regard for their community. And while they may disagree with their neighbor on politics, they would not run them out of town or utterly destroy them. It is these people, the decent people of the left, I hope will awaken their side to the dangerous trend growing in America. (I want the same from the right as well.)
If we can be unified in loyalty to our country while maintaining diverse opinions, the American dream can survive and thrive. If not, we will live in a nightmare of our own making. I hope we all wake up to this truth, and soon.
That’s it, for now. Thanks for subscribing.
