“We, The Extremists”

WATCH: AMAC CEO Rebecca Weber break down this article in a BFA Special!

Forget “We, the People.” According to Democrats, the GOP’s “Commitment to America,” defending free speech (1st Amendment), free exercise of religion (1st Amendment), right to keep and bear arms (2nd Amendment), security from unreasonable search and seizure (4th Amendment), respect the Supreme Court (Article III), ending inflation, restoring affordable energy and accountability – is “extremist.

As previewed in Biden’s Philadelphia speech, Republicans – all who voted for Trump in 2016 or 2020 – are officially “enemies of the state,” “undermine democracy,” and are “extremists.” In effect, 74 million Americans are now “enemies of the state,” one-party rule preferable to two.

Before we go further down this rabbit hole, understand these are the exact words of a sitting president, Mr. Biden, and a sitting House Speaker, Ms. Pelosi. They are echoed – as cue cards recirculate – by Vice President Harris and Majority Leader Schumer.

The naked idea is, if you have nothing to be proud of, call your political opponent “extremists,” try to inflame them, then claim a need to shut them down, raid their homes, subpoena their private documents, intimidate them, chill them, meet competing ideas with denials, appeals to “democracy,” and ridicule, hoping you can outshout them.

Where does that strategy come from? Radical leftist Saul Alinsky who advocated societal transformation, leftist rules for combat, and said “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” because “it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.” In other words, you can make them look the way you want them to and then hammer them with raw power.

Some will think this is too much and ascribes too much ingenuity, duplicity, and ill will to Democrats in the White House, House, and Senate – all of whom dread relinquishing power to the popular will, but think about it.

Are the principles articulated by the distilled “Commitment to America,” like the 1994 “Contract with America,” including constitutional fidelity, free speech, worship, and self-defense, a stable currency, limited government, energy independence, and accountable government really “extreme?”

Would George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, or for that matter Abe Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, or Ronald Reagan think so? Not likely, they all spoke plainly for less government, more accountability, constitutional integrity, trust in our institutions, respect for the Supreme Court (even when they lost politically), not to mention lower taxes (including Kennedy, Reagan, and the Founders), not what the Democrats push now.

So, who are the radicals, the extremists, the unhinged gluttons for power, hellbent on federal control of what the Constitution says belongs to the individual, local and state government, taking from “We, The People” for “They, the Powerful?” Just think about it, this is not hard.

So, how do everyday Americans respond to this? If you are a moderate Democrat, thoughtful Independent, or Republican of most stripes, you must step back – and ponder what is afoot. When has a president ever roundly condemned tens of millions of Americans, raided the homes of political opponents, and called the opposing party an “enemy of the state?”

More broadly, ask – is this healthy for a Republic, how representative democracy is supposed to work? Is a “one-party should rule” idea more akin to the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and Venezuela, or America? Is open debate bad or good? Is this kind of combat – shutting down opposition voices – constitutionally faithful or closer to an abrogation of the Constitution?

And where does such behavior lead? When one party demonizes the other in such stark, non-logical, purely emotional, plainly provocative ways, no room for discussion, what does that do to civic dialogue?  Make it better or worse? What does it do to dignity in the political process, enhance it or place it at risk?

And – as we watch political violence against Republicans rise, without Democrat comment, how do we assess that development? Not only did leading Democrats push political violence – which is anti-constitutional – in 2020 in 200 cities, before and after the Dobbs decision in 2022, but they were shockingly silent last week when a fired-up Democrat ran over a young Republican for “extremism” and another inflamed Democrat shot an elderly woman handing out pro-life literature.

Follow me here. This is more than unhealthy, it is anti-American. To permit an implicit – at times explicit – appeal to anti-Republican violence is wrong, just as anti-Democratic political violence would be. A nod to using any means to silence those trying to keep legally protected rights alive – is profoundly wrong. 

When those who advance ideas central to the preservation of fundamental rights, rights enshrined – legally, historically, and politically – in our Constitution, are deemed “extremists,” the Republic is on thin ice. When those trusted to preserve textual liberties look the other way, the Republic is malfunctioning.

The goal right now – among Republicans, and all vilified for support of opposing ideas – is to remain calm, focused, keep your temper, humor, and endure the offense, but then vote firmly to end the careers of those who explicitly, or by nodding consent, believe this kind of behavior passes muster. It does not, should not, and – if we are to preserve the integrity of the Republic – cannot.

If “We, The People” – by just holding ideas opposed to leftist Democrat monopoly power – are suddenly dubbed “We, The Extremists,” then perhaps it is time to reexamine what this new version of Democrats is up to. From where a constitutionally and historically faithful voter sits, things just do not look right.

While these dims are sinking this economy I am buying shares in gun and ammo companies as
these items will become more and more in demand. I don’t know the numbers ( wish I did) but I
do know that gun/ammo consumption has skyrocketed in the US since Obama was elected.

I spent 30 years in the military from 1962 to 1992 and visited numerous countries to include Russia in 1983 . I was a Democrat voting member until they went radical I am ashamed to admit this however I switched parties after President Clinton and have never voted for that Party since or never will. When a party supports Woke, Critical Race Theory, Defund the Police, march in parades ( Vice President Harris ) call it’s own people radical because they voted for someone other than their candidate should not their homes be raided because they are advocating hate and racial prejudice .

Two years have gone by since the 2020 elections nothing was done about the voting. They cheated do you really think they will not cheat again. They have already said (politico) that it will take days after the election to figure out the voting on all the ballots that haven’t been even delivered yet. Probably a10000 mules this time for them to win. Maybe with overvoting in some precincts way over 100% and you say we need to rexamine what this new version of Democrats is up to! Lord help us if that’s all you got. If your not part of the solution your part of the problem. I hope I’m wrong. But I wasn’t wrong about the 2020 elections, covet, but my prayers are that I just get 2 out of 3 right. I have comment on here many times and a lot of people want to get the guns and learn to shoot. I’m 73 white republican and an enemy of the state according to the sitting president. But my faith is not in him.

You can always expect the radical liberal and marxist to accuse everyone else of exactly, what they are doing themselves. What did you expect from this same woman, who in 2009-2010 publicly stated that the Tea Party were nazi’s and domestic terrorist’s! And they are still at it. We The People Are The Government, Sovereign and Free!

Neither side of the political equation is above criticism, and I have no great love for the “Republicants” ;however, the Right better exemplifies traditional American values than does the Left. Do you support the Marxist doctrine permeating today’s Democrat party?

Democrats; masters of deceit, the blame game and lies, lies, lies. The greatest tragedy, so many of their supporters actually believe what they have to say. It boggles the mind that the democrat supporters actually think a radical socialism is a good thing for America. A radical socialism, Marxism, etc. cannot coexist with our Constitution, and our freedom.

When the Dems are in power, the GOP gets labeled extremist. When the GOP is in power, Dems are labeled extremist. Odd, no?

Funny how the finger points both ways. If you look at the democrat platform however, you must conclude they are extremist.

Democrats must have forgotten the USSR is the United Soviet SOCIALIST Republic. Communism is Socialism. They are afraid of Russia because Russia stopped being Socialist as it didn’t work for it’s entire 70 years, or more, of rule. If being for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness is Extreme, then count me in. I will never be Socialist and all my votes will be on the side of Liberty. My grand children don’t have the same freedom I have known, and that makes me sad. We must stand up to loss of our rights by our votes, and actions if votes fail.
When government goes astray, ignores rights, and threatens to strip away safety, it loses it’s right to govern. ( Declaration of Independence) The preservation of a free government requires not merely, that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained; but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great barrier which defends the rights of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such an encroachment, exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are tyrants. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves, nor by an authority derived by them, and are slaves. (A Letter by James Madison)

When these Democrat Socialist/Communist Pigs are removed from office we, the People of the United States, need to make sure that these pigs pay dearly for their actions to destroy the Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our Republic. After the attacks from the Democrats on Republicans, conservatives, and President Trump, now is not the time to show compassion for these pigs but make sure they are held accountable for their acts of treason. Investigate them thoroughly and remove their ill gotten financial gains plus impose heavy financial penalties and imprisonment.and/or capital punishment.

The media is corrupt and allows the domestic threat to exist but then every place on earth is ruled by corruption. Obama got a Nobel for doing nothing while Kushner gets nothing for the Abraham Accords and virtual Mideast peace?

After reading this article and reading some of the comments many of us ARE CORRECT! The DEMOCRATS want a 1 RULING Party to CONTROL “ALL OF US” which I believe won’t happen because it would an ALL OUT CIVIL WAR? Not because were Republicans but because OUR FREEDOM is BEING TAKEN AWAY like the CONSTITUTION and the BILL OF RIGHTS and our AMMENDMENTS like the 10th Amendment where state or Federal can come in and TAKEOVER and CONTROL GAS, ELECTRICITY or any other ENTITY! If they think Chevron or PG&E is GOUGING US they have the right to take it over and “CONTROL EVERYTHING and PRICE IT THE WAY THEY WANT”! That’s what 10th Amendment says! Many of us are outspoken and CORRECT so it’s nice to see that others need to UNDERSTAND the RAMIFICATIONS of what the DEMOCRATS are trying to RAM DOWN OUR THROATS and CONTOL US! This is why Republican, Democrat and Conservatives need to under stand that WE STAND IN UNISON and VOTE REPUBLICAN this Nov. 8th! Recently a letter in the news said that Tom Patti(Repub) voted full Democrat for major tax INCREASES in California? But it was actually JOSH HARDER who wrote this ridiculous LYING LETTER an put it out there! When actually JOSH HARDER is an OPERATIVE of Nancy Pelosi! Anything she says HE DOES! This “IS” the DEMOCRATIC WAY for “NON-THINKERS and LIARS like HARDER”! Wonder if the [email protected]$$ gave the teacher an APPLE! This is how DEMOCRATS THINK or they “CAN’T” because they really LACK BRAIN CELLS LIKE JOEY! I believe OBAMA is in his 3rd TERM and is BEHIND the SCENES with others CONTROLING a great deal of this! We need OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF BACK President Donald TRUMP and get this CRAP STRAIGHTENED OUT so we “CAN GO FORWARD GOD’S WAY” and not SATAN’S WAY UNDER DEMOCRATS DISASTEROUS PLAN! Democrats could NEVER DEFEND there PLANS because THEY “FAILED IN ALL OF THEM”!! No ONE’S LIFE IMPROVED IN ANY OF THEM unless they were in a UNION and even some of those are calling Democrats are FAILURES for what there doing to the AMERICAN PEOPLE!

I agree with most of what you have said except the part about an “all out civil war”. I don’t think there are enough Americans left to actually engage in a civil war. The only exception would be a total collapse of the economy, a war, and not being able to feed our families. Then, Americans might rise up to fight. Otherwise, there would be patriots that would rise up but not many others. Covid taught us that lesson. All in all as you have said, only God can save this nation now.

LEFTIST RADICAL RATS ARE AT IT AGAIN-outright lies & manipulation…it’s what they do. Seems leftists all need to attend schooling on how to lie & manipulate before they can run for office…Biden has perfected the Art of the Lie in his 47 years of feeding at the public trough [ever notice how few Dems have ever had a real job in their adult life: Schumer, Clinton, Pelosi, Biden, et al]
