What do you do with citizens in this country who are unable to grasp reality, but believe they know more than everyone else? What do you do when those people believe the rest of us are a threat to them, to their power, and to the Country? You call them out, over and over again. Two foolish and absurd statements that were made most recently were by Katie Couric and Representative Steve Cohen.
Katie Couric began her career in television and is still seen in guest appearances, such as on the Bill Maher show. She calls herself a journalist and is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. On Bill Maher’s show, she responded to a question from Maher on the state of the country and wondered how all of us who had supported Trump could be “de-programmed,” having been brainwashed by the Trump charisma.
Then there is Congressman Steve Cohen, who is very concerned about the National Guard which has been called in for security and protection for the Inauguration. He has pointed out that generally members of the military are conservative and must have supported Donald Trump, so it makes sense to be concerned about the Guard’s patriotism and commitment to protecting people at the inauguration. An effort is being made to vet the 25,000 Guardsmen, just in case.
It might be helpful to point out that Cohen has never worked outside of politics, and you might have guessed that he was never in the military.
Finally, we have all those people who either supported Trump or served in his administration. The House and Senate members who still support Trump are being called out. At least ten CEOs of major companies are threatening to stop funding Republicans who supported Trump. And there are stories of ordinary people who were “caught” posting conservative ideas on Twitter or Facebook and have been fired. They clearly endanger the country as well. I suspect these efforts against conservatives will not stop with the politicians. As Ms. Couric says, we have all been brainwashed.
The Left’s inability or unwillingness to get any kind of balanced perspective on the world makes any of us who don’t see the world through their prism a serious danger.
How will they rescue us and help us see the light?Published in
