Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I was again sparked by an article in American Greatness about the madness of the moment, and how that is 100% supported by Biden and the Democrats. This was first titled the “Madness of America” which I preferred, but the editors have changed it. I am not making any argument her for confidence in anyone’s victory November, but again, stark relief about what Biden and the Democrats stand for, and how voting for them and supporting them getting into power is supporting un-American ideals. I can understand rank-in-file Democrats voting for the same old, same old. What I cannot understand is how people who claim to be conservatives can vote for Biden.
So, here are some more Points, that if touyou Support Democrats, you support this. Electing more of them will encourage these things.
Democratic leaders around the country have been allowing violent radicals to run wild in the streets, set fires, smash private property, and beat people up. Democratic mayors have allied explicitly with the radicals, echoing the insane calls to “defund the police” and rounding up troublemakers only to invite them to accuse cops of misconduct.
If you are for Biden, you are for letting the Mobs run wild
In Seattle, the mayor refused to resist a takeover of several downtown blocks until the perpetrators marched on her own house. (Her government is now forcing white city employees to take training sessions in which they must “affirm their complicity” in racism and work on “undoing their whiteness.”)
Major corporations, terrified of the Marxist rabble, are succumbing to their demands, issuing obsequious declarations of support, forcing employees to read books about their white privilege, and firing those who don’t grovel sufficiently.
If you are for Biden, you are for forced re-education based on race
If you are for Biden, you are for prosecuting people for using their Right to Arms, when no one got hurt, to protect their home.
When Penn State issued a statement saying that it welcomed students of all kinds, including conservatives, the backlash was so tremendous that it withdrew the statement.
If you are for Biden, you do not believe that conservatives should be welcome in higher education.
At Princeton, more than 200 faculty members have demanded that the administration address “systematic racism” by adopting over 40 sweeping initiatives that would (among much else) ensure ideological purity in hiring and in academic writings, give extra sabbaticals to black professors, and establish a campus anti-racism center.
If you are for Biden, you are for set asides based on race.
If you are for Biden, you are for cancel culture being in control of research
Even the U.S. Army has gotten into the act, sending an email to all personnel saying that the word “colorblind” and the statements “all lives matter” and “Make America Great Again” are evidence of “white supremacy.” (To be sure, the Army backtracked when called on this move by a congressman.)
If you are for Biden, you are for injecting racial politics into the US Military.
Now for the lecture Part:
If anything is crystal clear at present, it’s that all this leftist mayhem, encouraged by the Democratic Party and its adherents, represents an existential threat to America as we know it, and that, whatever one may think of Donald Trump’s personality or policies, it would be sheer madness to vote for anyone other than him in November.
And yet every day I turn to Facebook to find friends and relatives around the country whose lives, it seems, are fully devoted to the effort to unseat the president. These are people who have comfortable homes, stable lives, beloved children, prized careers—people who have no interest in seeing the system overthrown, the Republic toppled. And yet instead of being unsettled by the unprecedented nationwide disorder promoted by the Democrats, they’re gunning for Trump.
It’s as if they don’t even know what’s going on.
Here is the thing: If someone reads Ricochet, and are politically active, he or she knows what is going on. Knows the things sited are actually happening. It is not like you are blinded by the mainstream media. How, on God’s Green Earth, can any politically connected conservative support the election of Biden and the Democrats who are encouraging such un-American things?Published in
