The Left is out for blood. In recent years, they have come to see their ideological opponents not as fellow Americans with whom they happen to disagree on certain issues, but as fundamentally bad people who do not deserve a voice and who should be silenced.
If they ever gain power in government again, they will not seek reconciliation with the other side or to bridge the partisan divide. Instead, revenge will be the order of the day.
The mainstream media don't like John McCain. They don't respect John McCain, either. The recent torrent of articles gushing about John McCain's honor, patriotism, civility, and amenability have nothing whatsoever to do with the man and everything to do with his adversary in the White House.
In 1937, an editorial in The New York Times declared that "what is truly vicious is not propaganda but a monopoly of it." Thus begins an article titled "Propaganda Techniques of German Fascism," written by Clyde R. Miller and reprinted in the fifth edition of Modern English Readings (1946). This text was used by college students. There is nothing dealing with gender, white privilege, social justice, the religion of peace, or alleged microaggressions.
"Desperate times call for desperate measures," as the old saying goes. The media and their patrons on the left are becoming desperate over their electoral prospects in November. The midterms are two months away, and the much hoped for "blue wave" is looking more like a swirl of blue toilet bowl cleaner about to be flushed down the drain.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D–Mass.) thinks she knows what ails capitalism: There aren't enough people telling the biggest businesses what to do.
Try to contain your surprise that Warren believes the profit motive is ruining capitalism. She wants the largest corporations in the United States to be legally answerable to people other than their shareholders, and she's introducing a bill to force it. This Bill would be outright THEFT.
From the wee hours of the morning on November 9, 2016, as they grappled with the sting of President-Elect Donald Trump triumphing over the anointed Queen of the Swamp, Democrats have been radicalizing by the minute.
It was only a matter of time. Mimicking what leftists themselves might call McCarthyism, the left is demanding a blacklist of those who oppose its political ideology.
Many on the left will be repulsed by the notion that they are following the dictates of a religion. They view themselves as the ultimate secularists. It may be that they cannot see the forest for the trees. Progressives have great passion for their cause, and we have seen throughout history the way religion can incite the greatest passion, often leading to murders and wars. Perhaps if we look at Progressivism through the religious prism, we may better understand the actions of its minions.
"They" are preciously called "immigrants," "refugees," "migrants," "undocumented Americans," and other pathetic-sounding names tailored to wrench our hearts – we purportedly cruel, unsympathetic, inhuman Americans.
Luxuriating here, behind our walls of wealth, abundance, and security, we deny them our (stolen) largesse and close up our fat-wracked arms to these noble, sacred, starving, uneducated, illiterate, diseased, violent, and socialist masses from "third-world," countries.
Who are these Mexicans, Africans, South Americans, Asians, and others whose feet Nancy Pelosi has washed and the pope kissed? What is it these luminaries see that we do not? We – reputedly the most selfish, evil, detestable creatures on Earth?
About 58 percent, or nearly 6-in-10 refugees have "below basic" English skills after living in the U.S. for five years. These unassimilated refugees are sometimes described as "functionally illiterate[.]" ...
Since 2008, as Breitbart News reported, the U.S. [with the "help" of "religious" and civilian "immigrant" organizations raking in billions of dollars] has permanently resettled more than 1.7 million foreign nationals and refugees through a variety of humanitarian programs like the Special Immigrant Juveniles, and the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act.
The majority, about 56 percent, of refugee households between 2011 and 2015 were on food stamps, a welfare service that is subsidized by the American taxpayer.
Nearly 30 percent of refugees received cash welfare of some sort between 2011 and 2015, while 34 percent of refugees 18-years-old or older said they had no health insurance.
Of the refugees who said they did have health insurance, about 50 percent said they were either on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance, both of which are taxpayer-funded.
Based upon commonsense analysis of the presented facts, it seems some of these "folks" do not come here to actually be Americans. It seems they do not want to be "assimilated" or to learn English. Or work. Or be responsible for their own finances, or for any employable future.
If you come to another country, but you have no dream to become one with it – and you express hatred and anger for your host while praising and promoting your own country and vengefully flying its flag, and you say out loud that you want to vanquish and control the host – then you are a foreign invader. A conquering army.
When the Italians, Irish, Jews, and others came to America around the beginning of the 20th century – escaping the Old World, imbued with genuine desire to become 100% American – they had to stop at Ellis Island, the federal immigration station, isolated on 27.5 acres in the Upper New York Bay.
These people, including my own Jewish ancestors, came to America at the turn of the 20th century to escape actual ethnic cleansing of the Pogroms, or mass murders – poverty and suppression – and to fulfill a dream of becoming Americans. They didn't "protest," march, or fly the flags of their home countries. They learned English, entered or created American jobs, and became financially and societally successful.
There was no American welfare state. There were no "freebie" benefits as there are now, a hundred years later.
These immigrants of the early 20th century came to America to be free, to stand individually, to provide for their families, to create, and to become 100% Americans.
There is precedent here. There is ancestral experience and assimilation in America here. There are those who know what it means to be an immigrant and escape to a better world in America.
The American Dream has never been one of living on welfare or benefits while maintaining and promoting your own "culture," language, religion, and laws. It's not about being a Mexican or an African or any other nationality.
America is about being American.
It's the same in any country. You don't go to Mexico or Saudi Arabia or Zimbabwe, and fly the American flag and declare you're there to take over. You would probably be arrested or killed in those countries.
In America, you are protected by law. You are an American.
If you are a real, legal immigrant, and not an invader – you came here for truth, justice, and the American way.
If you came here but don't want to be an American, or you want to eradicate America and be in control through ethnicity, religion, or foreign law – go home. Or go somewhere else.

Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other large internet companies have taken it upon themselves to censor and block content they find offensive. Unfortunately for some of us, they seem to find that any thought that might be described as conservative falls within this offensive category, but their actions are dangerous regardless of political leanings.
The American Left is stoking hatred and it’s tearing us apart. Our media is guilty of not only of failing to shame those responsible, in many cases they egg them on, giving them a platform. The volume of irrational hatred spewing into our ether is extremely unhealthy, even dangerous for our republic and the broader American culture.
