Lanterns: It's Time to Break The Socialist Grip on America


It's Time to Break The Socialist Grip on America

The Democrat Party Has Shielded Its Socialist Component Long Enough; It Is The Time To Break The Socialist Grip On America.


I’m writing today to rebut Joshua Nybo’s article of 8/27/17, “It’s Time to Reach Out.” I mean no disrespect to my colleague, rather I’ve been employing this approach for many years, as have strong Conservatives countrywide. I’m finished, as are many others. Instead, what we are witnessing is the Silent Majority rising, and I applaud it. 

Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain…


Libtard, Conservatard, Cucktard— anyone using these terms to argue a point is an idiot. We’re losing our country, Joshua, and it’s imperative that we stop wasting our time arguing with such dolts. They are lambs to the slaughter as a rule, and in most cases, haven’t had an original thought in years or decades. These are not serious people. We, therefore, are fools to give them any attention. The time for olive branches is over. We better start fighting for our nation, because destruction from within is imminent. America’s demise, should it occur, rests squarely upon the corrupt liars at the head of the Democrat Party, the Media with which they collude and its legions of well-meaning parrots.

For over fifty years, the Left has systematically followed a plan of destruction with roots in Marxist doctrine. Slowly, but surely, they’ve infiltrated all major cultural centers in the US through the Democrat Party under the guise of “working for the people.” Currently, they’ve achieved most of the Ten Planks of Communism as written by Karl Marx in The Communist Manifesto. Understand, America is heading directly into a Communist trap while the Left has us playing tiddlywinks with feelings. Emotional claptrap is simple misdirection. Look behind the curtain, it shrouds deceptions and trickery we’ve ignored for decades. 

It’s the High Road for the Grand Old Party…


Conservatives historically take the high road. We are predisposed to quiet intellectualism, evidence-based policy solutions, and good old-fashioned common sense. We go to our jobs, work hard, and raise our families. We are Godly people, and we’re proud of our country and the freedoms we theoretically enjoy. Loud, flamboyant, angry protesting is the purview of the Left— it always has been, always will be. Conservatives are traditionalists and respect the rights of individuals to forge their paths without undue governmental intrusion. An important side note: we lead by example, and believe our truth will win out over vulgar displays and dirty dealing. 

We’ve seen unintended consequences though, from keeping to ourselves and minding our own business. Willingly, we’ve been sitting ducks for Leftist treachery, and they’ve taken full advantage over decades. While we went about our lives, the Left took incremental steps toward a power grab by way of indoctrination; we barely noticed. They defined Conservatives as elitist pigs and financial scoundrels—  uncaring and ruthless dogs who’d happily take your Grandma’s last dime and push her down the basement steps. We kept on keeping on, secure in the thought our qualities and honest ideals would win out. 

Numbers Are Slipping Quietly, But Precipitously…


Fortunately, we’re still the majority, though not in the numbers we previously enjoyed. Our children are siphoned off and stuffed full with liberal nonsense from the minute they enter kindergarten to the day they graduate from the University. Simultaneously, basic tenets of traditional curriculum are no longer taught or have been replaced with radical, rewritten history. Reinforced at each and every grade level, conservative parents are at their wits’ end to combat this attack on their kids. See, we’ve always told them to listen to their teachers. The first time one is hit broadside is the day their child argues a liberal point vehemently because the teacher “says so.” It happens even in “good” families who try to inoculate children with a strong foundation at home and is considerably worse than peer pressure. 

What’s happened in education has been calmly and deliberately reinforced from all sectors of entertainment, including the supposedly, ‘nonpartisan, objective media.’ News used to be informative, now it’s 24-hour entertainment. Hollywood and the Arts Community are thick with Leftist pawns and what Lenin and Marx referred to as “useful idiots.” Liberal ideology permeates television, movies, books, and music. Entertainers have their very own bully pulpits, and they make good use of them. We live life under constant bombardment, and it’s reached the tipping point for many Americans. It has worn on us for years, but we’re finally experiencing a much-needed awakening. 

Take The High Road To The High Ground…


We are on the doorstep of Civil War. Some of us strongly believe it’s already begun and the populace hasn’t quite figured it out. For now, it’s mainly verbal skirmishes, like the #TakeAKnee movement. #BLM, #Antifa, and #WhiteSupremacists take it a step further; to them, the ends justify the means. These terrorists must be called out every single time they show up and misbehave, and it’s up to each of us to make every Leftist politician and corporate sponsor pay where it hurts for standing with violent thugs. 

It’s a mistake, however, to think #Antifa represents the Left any more than #WhiteSupremicists represent the Right. Good people aren’t being nudged into becoming racists; likewise, they’re not being pressured to join with violent thugs. These groups exemplify only the radical fringe, a very loud but small segment of society. The majority of both sides are good folks just trying to take care of their families and live their lives. Tragically, most of those championing the left exist under the delusion that they’re morally and ethically superior; all the while, they’re being misled, just as Germany was duped in the 1930s. 

The Day Draws Near…


I understand from where Joshua is coming. Nevertheless, I’ve been a history buff and political junkie for longer than he’s graced this earth. I’ve watched the moral, cultural, and political sands shift. I’ve witnessed the tree of liberty strangled with perverse lies and entrapped in circular arguments. The rapid disintegration of the family unit threatens the very fabric of our nation, while religious freedom is undermined at every turn. The time has come, to stand. 

We all hope it won’t lead to bloodshed and physical war, but we remember the words of Thomas Jefferson:  “the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is its natural manure.”

We’re choosing up sides to fight for an idea more important than any one of us— America. Appeasement is not a viable answer when tyranny threatens liberty. We’ve already lost much of the American experience. This grievous task falls to us. We must meet it, as did generations previous, or we’ll have no country left for which to fight. 

Extract from Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith Paris Nov. 13. 1787.

...the people can not be all, & always, well informed. the part which is wrong [. . .] will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. we have had 13. states independant 11. years. there has been one rebellion. that comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. what country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a century or two? the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it’s natural manure.
