Reflections on Last November: Beware of the Left

Liberals have a propensity disrespect voter integrity, cultural heritage, customs, institutions, and, potentially, anything that came before them.

My friend Carolyn resided in Florida and then Illinois before migrating to North Carolina. She speaks well, and is a committed Republican. In everyday life, Carolyn avoids squabbles with liberals, unless of course they cross the line, and then she gently but succinctly refutes their erroneous notions.

During the 2020 campaign season, she volunteered at voting precincts throughout the town of Cary North Carolina, at the Republican desk, handing out a card with the slate of GOP candidates. Cary, like parts of Raleigh, tends to be über-liberal, although there are some strong pockets of conservatives.

Belligerence on Cue

Following her stint on one Friday, I asked her “How did it go?” In her customary cheery tone, she told me it was fine. I asked her if there had been any rabble-rousers among those who do not favor the GOP. She reported that a few individuals made mild mocking gestures and glances, another two declared that they had no interest in literature from any GOP organization, and one man said, “F___ Trump.”

Her experiences on that day were typical: A smattering of those who disagree with everything Republican, and then one or two who mouth off, unprovoked. Republican campaign workers, we can presume, are used to it.

As an intellectual exercise, let’s reverse this scenario. Suppose that you are volunteering at the Democrat desk, handing out literature and the slate of Democrat candidates. Whether your stint is two to four hours or more, will anyone walk by and give you grief because indeed you’re working for Democrats? Will anyone make off-handed comments? It’s possible, but less likely.

A Breed Apart

Does anyone on the right verbally contend with a Democrat campaign worker. Why not? Do those who vote for conservatives have greater manners? Are they more reserved? Are they more respectful? Likely, yes, but it’s hard to point to statistical evidence.

What is at the root of liberal incivility? Is it a universal phenomenon? For example, are liberals in France or Germany or Italy more prone to mouth off against the opposition than vice versa? Ann Coulter explains in her book, Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America, that liberals “exhibit all the psychological characteristics of a mob.”

Disrespect Each Day

Given liberals’ propensity to disrespect cultural heritage, customs, institutions, and, potentially, anything that came before them, they have a proclivity for chiding anyone with whom they disagree. After all, when you “know that you are right,” and you “know that the other party is completely wrong,” why would you deign to remain civil with them? Why would you engage in healthy debate? Why would you spare any words defending your views?

Moreover, when you have demonized the opposition party and its members, you give yourself permission to disrespect them and to verbally attack them, and perhaps physically attack them.

The violent protesters, the looters, and the outright criminals roaming the streets, in largely Democratic cities, are on the political Left. You’ll nary find a conservative in the bunch, unless they are present to counteract the misdeeds of those on the Left. This phenomenon is not exclusive to America. The same scenarios play out over and over around the world. The Left is predisposed to forming mobs and exhibiting mob mentality.

One Step Away

Each time that Carolyn volunteered last November, the one or two individuals who were verbally abusive, perhaps, were but a step away from joining others of a similar mentality, and forming their own little mob. From there, who knows of what they are capable? However, we can all guess.

January 6th Committee Begins Another Criminal Referral for Top Trump Aide

Seems a bit desperate, don’t you think?

Published

on

Where once the Democrats worked overtime to prevent the world from discovering just how desperate they truly are, we now have a progressive posse that has no qualms about flamboyant flailing and unfettered fiasco.

This is most simply observed by keeping a keen eye on the select committee investigating the events of January 6th, who realize that their time is limited by the Democrats’ likely loss of control of Congress at the end of next year.  That development would almost undoubtedly see their committee dissolved, hence the reason for their desperate actions and frantic pace.

The latest sign of such a turn comes to us in the form of a criminal contempt charge for Mark Meadows.

Mark Meadows’s cooperation with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection appears to be over as quickly as it started.

Just one week after the committee announced it had reached an agreement with Donald Trump’s former chief of staff to produce records and appear for an initial deposition, Fox News reported Tuesday morning that Meadows and his attorney were planning to notify lawmakers on the House panel that they could not reach an understanding on how to work together.

“We have made efforts over many weeks to reach an accommodation with the committee,” Meadows’s attorney George Terwilliger told Fox News, explaining that Meadows had been willing to appear voluntarily to answer questions that he believed were not covered by executive privilege. However, Terwilliger said that over the weekend, the committee made clear it was also planning to look into material that Meadows considered privileged, pointing to a subpoena that had been issued to a third party for Meadows’s cellphone records.

The committee was unmoved by the argument, however.

“If indeed Mr. Meadows refuses to appear, the Select Committee will be left no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Mr. Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution,” they said.

“Even as we litigate privilege issues, the Select Committee has numerous questions for Mr. Meadows about records he has turned over to the Committee with no claim of privilege, which include real-time communications with many individuals as the events of January 6th unfolded,” read the statement from Thompson and Cheney. “We also need to hear from him about voluminous official records stored in his personal phone and email accounts, which were required to be turned over to the National Archives in accordance with the Presidential Records Act.”

Meadows is the second Trump adviser to be targeted in such a way by the committee, with Steve Bannon’s contempt trial set to begin in July of 2022.
