    Beware the Morality of the Democrats​

    By Jeffrey T. Brown ~~ The Democrats have laid claim to be the new arbiters of “morality.” They declare “immoral” anything that has the potential to thwart them, whether it’s a wall, a hat, a facial expression, or even religion itself, particularly Christianity. This has invited soul searching on the question of whether Democrats are right or wrong in their selective declaration of morality. Some are led to ask whether Democrats might be right -- could a wall be evidence of immorality? What if my desire to protect my country, my family and myself is actually bigoted, and therefore immoral? Such navel gazing by an objectively decent person is foolish. It is intended to bring about either a flawed acceptance of the left’s version of morality, or a subtle coercion to offer no further support for something that arguably offends others, presuming their good faith in being offended. The accusation of immorality, whether express or implied, represents a distraction from the Democrats’ efforts to subvert the country and its inherently moral principles....

    Our Framers believed in Liberty and their revolution was justified as it was to secure liberty from tyranny. The French and most other European Revolutions were not with the long-term aim of Liberty, but Equality. When violence and force is used for the aim of Equality, it always and everywhere results in TERROR.
    A revolution for Liberty means that each man and woman has Individual, Constitutional Rights that are given by God and Inalienable. Violence and force to impose Equality is not even a legitimate revolution, and since it is about facetious "Positive Rights" granted by men, the "Collective" can only be enforced by violence and force. So when the Progressive Marxist Socialist Left begins their arguments standing on their heads talking backwards, it is not surprising that only violence and force will suffice in enforcing compliance for tyrants.
    The so called modern Progressive Left isn't moral. They don't subscribe to the idea of morality, their actions cannot be predicted based on consistent moral grounds, they lie as a matter of course and they don't believe in anything they say they believe in. They are elitist opportunists in search of more power.
    Consider immigration; Many of the Elitist left supported a wall before they didn't and saw illegal immigration as a problem before claiming that the crisis was manufactured. Facts don't back up their current position so they are left trying to trot out "morality". They claim that every vote should count, appeals to the power of a centralized federal government but when the votes are in and the people's representatives have voted for border control and the courts have confirmed laws concerning immigration, mayors simply declare they oversee a "sanctuary city". So if you can't reason with them, the vote doesn't count, law doesn't matter and the courts are ignored there isn't much left except a shooting war.

    More far-right-wing bloviation from the American Thinker website?

    God, no wonder some on the right think Trump is a "genius", if this kind of tripe passes for "acceptable".

    Right wingers seem to be getting more and more desperate now that the People are rejecting virtually all their political positions and ideologies. They are strong advocates of anti-democratic institutions and measures to suppress voting esp. of minorities. But they seem willing to go much further if the People keep rejecting them, so now we have have discussion of "national emergency" declarations because Congress refuses to spend money as the President wants - faux admirers of the Framers like ones in the article cited don't want to speculate on what the Framers would have thought of that.

    And there's always the ultimate possibility that the author mentions in his last sentence if the right doesn't get its way - a "shooting war". Doubt it would go the way they think, however.
