Liberal Falsehoods Will Lead to Dire Consequences [Opinion]

Spread it like wildfire…

Published

I am extremely disturbed by three massive lies embraced by Democratic presidential candidates and supported by the media: 


1. “Mass incarceration”

2. “The cancer of inequality” 

3. “Government can fix everything”

The liberal media has spread the notion that America suffers from “mass incarceration,” especially of “people of color” (another liberal term). But look at the facts. What we really suffer from is an epidemic of crime. The problem is crime; the jail time is simply the result. Keeping criminals in jail has cut the crime rate in half. The liberals want to turn them loose on the streets. And whose fault is it that people of color are overrepresented in our prisons? Blacks commit ten times the number of violent crimes as whites and Hispanics combined. The blame lies with the criminals, not the victims.

The Leftist canard that racist police and the justice system deliberately discriminate against African-Americans is not supported by the facts. In 2020, it is ridiculous to suggest that white police are gunning for blacks. “The fault lies primarily with the black criminals,” says political commentator Dennis Prager, “not with a racist society.” The bulk of responsibility, agreed former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, is on African-Americans who “commit murder eight times more per capita than any other group in our society.” Ignoring the obvious connection between black criminality and black incarceration, the Left continues to point a finger at the police. “Numerical disparities result from differences of offending,” said black talk show host Larry Elder, “not because of racism.”

Heather Mac Donald, author of The War on Cops, contends that the bottom line question is: Should African-Americans be held responsible for their own behavior—including criminal behavior, or are they victims of a racist society? Mac Donald concludes that blacks cannot shirk responsibility for their own behavior. The notion that African-Americans are victims of systemic racism may have been true prior to the 1960s, but this is a half-century after the Civil Rights Movement. “White institutional racism has disappeared from our society,” says Scott Greer in No Campus for White Men. “Black Americans now have every opportunity that white Americans have long enjoyed.” During an interview with Mark Levin on Fox TV, African-American author Shelby Steele agreed. “The oppression of black Americans is over with,” he said.

The mass incarceration idea is specious logic and it is dishonest. Got that? DISHONEST!

Now on to the equality issue. Democrats have asserted that all our problems are caused by “the cancer of inequality.” This is nothing less than the old race card in new form. In reality, there is never equality. No two people have the same fingerprint. No two snowflakes are identical. Nature did that, not the Republicans. No system can create or legislate equality. Even Soviet Russia had an official class that enjoyed special privileges. In the capitalist system, at least we have equality of opportunity. If you work hard, you have a shot at the “American Dream.”

Obama scoffed at the “American Dream” idea. He said that if you are successful, “You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” The liberals are not satisfied with equality of opportunity—they want equality of outcome. They assert that the American Dream is an entitlement. You don’t have to work for it, it is guaranteed. If you have not achieved the dream, the liberals insist, you must be the victim of the cancer of inequality.

In reality, equality of outcome can never be accomplished without control by a coercive centralized authority. “A free society will not be one of equality,” said James Peron, author of Exploding Population Myths. “Even if we were able to distribute all wealth equally, once the heavy hand of centralized control was removed, inequality would immediately result. The destruction of freedom is the only method for implementing equality of results.”

Liberals are not for equality of opportunity, they want equality of outcome and that is impossible. It is also dishonest. Got it? DISHONEST!

Finally, Bernie Sanders’ idea that big government can fix everything, including supplying jobs, is absurd. Everything government touches turns to crap. We have a really good—not perfect—system that has created a wonderful standard of living for most Americans. If you work hard, you can make a decent living. But if you refuse to take responsibility for yourself, you are making a choice that will lead to dire consequences. As we allow the government to be responsible for more and more of our needs, we relinquish more and more of our independence. Sanders’ preferred alternative to the current system is socialism, where the government takes care of everything. Wherever it has been tried, socialism has resulted in totalitarianism. “While democracy seeks equality in liberty,” wrote Alexis de Toqueville, “socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

Capitalism means “a competitive system based on free disposal over private property,” said F.A. Hayek. “Only within this system is democracy possible. Where it becomes dominated by a collectivist creed, democracy will inevitably destroy itself.” Poverty and crime are not the children of capitalism, they are the result of personal decisions. The liberals want to dismantle a system that functions in order to create a nanny state. It isn’t working in Europe and it won’t work here. It is dishonest. Got it? DISHONEST!

These are lies, and do not deserve the attention they are getting from a gullible public. People have ceased to think for themselves. They don’t object to being manipulated by opportunists like Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And that is not dishonest, it is dangerous. Got it? DANGEROUS! Wake up!!!

Pro-Trump Lawyer Drops Huge ‘Q’ Hint, Crowd Goes Wild

WHOA…

Published

Donald Trump may not be in office anymore, but his political power remains very firmly intact thanks to his wide web of supporters and their undying belief in his message. Among those followers are the “Q” disciples:  Americans who’ve created a community around a mysterious internet poster who has seemingly promoted Trump’s secret war against the Deep State via his cryptic breadcrumbs. Now, as No. 45 continues to contemplate his next political move, one pro-Trump lawyer is sending the Q world into a frenzy. Pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood received a standing ovation on Friday when he made “Q” gestures during a speech and appeared to link the QAnon conspiracy to a religious revival in the U.S. Wood, a prominent Georgia lawyer, was speaking at the Health and Freedom Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He told the crowd that former President Donald Trump had won the 2020 election and was still president. And then.. Wood briefly discussed his personal life and his four divorces, jokingly comparing himself to the Hebrew King David, who had nine wives, to the appreciation of the crowd. “But God forgave me, for as I’ve come to believe, God planned it,” Wood said. “He plans every detail of your life. He knows how many hairs are on your beautiful head. And he uses your sins and he uses your shortcoming to teach you so that when the time comes that he’s ready and you’ve been learning – watch out for this next move.” “He’s going to rebirth you into the spirit world and create exactly the person that he intended you to be,” Wood said while drawing a “Q” with his right index finger. “There’s your Q,” he said, drawing the letter in the air again. “Q!” The audience applauded and some began cheering in what quickly turned…
