Yes, of course you have.
Voting is our fundamental right and responsibility in our citizen-controlled governmental design — a patriotic act. Citizen to citizen debate about political options in upcoming votes are essential to our national democratic process. But have you been reluctant to put up a political sign or banner? Is it just not worth the hassle?
Are you afraid to identify yourself as supporting a certain national political candidate? If so, which one? And why?
Could it be that the opponents of that candidate have shifted from attacking him and started attacking his voters? It has long been a strategy to make a candidate undesirable and to alienate potential voters from supporting him/her because of who or what they are. But how often have they called upon fell0w-citizens to shun and deride anyone who might pull a lever for him/her?
In 2016 it was the “deplorables”. In 2020 it is the “nazis.” Scott Adams, Greg Gutfeld, and now PowerLine are highlighting the biggest news of this election that journalists (including Fox News) are declining to cover: Joe Biden has issued a license to kill Trump supporters. He probably doesn’t know it, because it’s unclear what he knows anymore.
In city after city Democratic politicians are, through action or inaction, giving license to violence. People are getting hurt for expressing a different point of view (something our Constitution upholds), protecting private property (also something our constitution upholds), or really doing nothing at all. And the consequences to the violent actors are either slow or non-existent. And now, the Democratic standard-bearer has labeled everyone that supports Donald Trump as Nazis. And we all know how we should treat Nazis. (This isn’t your ACLU defending Skokie marchers, anymore.)
If you have not heard Scott Adam’s rant about Joe Biden’s use of the “fine people” hoax as a political weapon, it is not something to be missed.
Patriotism in 2020 is a subversive act. Trump supporters are the underground in Democrat-occupied America.Published in
