The political climate of the nation is out of control, and it’s the liberal left’s fault
April 2017

I tend to consider myself a civil and coherent individual, and that separates me from the marchers and rioters throughout the U.S. in the past several weeks. Here is a simple fact to all of left wing America: violence is never acceptable, and if you dare challenge that notion or attempt to validate it, you are no better than a traitor.

The violent attacks that occurred on the UC Berkeley campus early February over the Milo Yiannapolous event was disastrous and appalling. How anyone could genuinely look at that riot as a “protest” boggles middle America’s mind. I mention Middle America because people who live in big, cosmopolitan cities and bright blue suburbs truly have no idea what’s going on out there. Pepper spraying people wearing Trump hats and burning down a Starbucks is by no means some thoughtful expression of disapproval; senseless violence is a flat out assault on the freedoms that make this nation the beacon of hope for the world.

In addition, the mass demonstrations at airports are nothing more than a burden to working people and families who are just trying to get from place to place. Work meetings, school events, and family vacations are what air travel should be used for. Immigration disputes? Save that for the borders and Washington, please. Travel disruptions to our citizens to appease the raging left is, once again, uncalled for and unacceptable.

This portion of the “Looney” Left has been involved in the Democratic Party since the last era of mass rioting during the Vietnam days of the late 60s and 70s. I consider people like Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground as the beginning of this trend producing violence and chaos in Blue America (although there are earlier examples). Organized liberal fear mongering displays no sense of democracy serving its purpose. The only desire of the hard left, which is now becoming the base of the Democratic Party, is to destroy all opposition and have government reign supreme. In case anyone hasn’t opened a history book lately, this does not usually work too well (e.g. Russia, China, Vietnam, North Korea, and soon California).

One of the most profound and noteworthy strengths of America is the nation’s ability to persevere during the most difficult moments of adversity. Yes, moments of weakness exist, but people wake up, go to work, take care of their families, and move right along to normal life after even the most dramatic events. However, the lunacy of liberal America, most particularly that of the champagne slurping elite in the posh city centers and upper crust suburban enclaves, is becoming a dangerous threat to our nation’s inherent, longstanding stability. The time has come for Middle America to repudiate these horrific events and restore law and order. With the election of the working man’s President, there may just be an opportunity to do this after all.
