Red Versus Blue: Who is stoking the fires of hatred and intolerance?

As we approach 2020 and what will be the most important election of my life I see a political battlefield that is especially turbulent.  Political battles are nothing new and our nation has had plenty of them over the years and you can say that a vigorous political debate is good for the Republic.

These days there is a component of our political debate that is not something that can be ignored or explained away as simple fervor.  There is a palpable and especially vicious hatred within the debate.  This emotional force is not one that is confined to the topics at hand but permeates our society in many ways.  Hatred is an ugly word and an ugly sentiment and I use this word with the respect that is due if one is to toss an accusation into a discussion containing such an implication.

It is beyond apparent that the left and especially the activists for the left that they hold a disregard for the Conservative/Deplorable/Red State citizens that goes far outside of what would be called a conversation in the body politic.  The disdain is a hatred of all things emanating from the Red state nation.  There are uncountable examples of blue state/liberal/socialist activists aggressively attacking Red state citizens with threats and verbal language and assaults that are beyond firm evidence of this hatred and disrespect.   From the day after Trump beat Hillary, the rhetoric started and has risen in intensity ever since.  There was violence in the streets the day of Trump’s inauguration in DC with acts of destruction of private property recorded on film for the news at 11.

I would take a moment to reflect back upon the reaction of the red state people after the half black messiah was elected in 2008.  Obama was universally despised by the right for his policies and agenda as well as his disrespect for our heritage and nation.  Even so, I cannot recall violence in the streets.  I cannot recall any red state citizen destroying property.  Even with the rise of the TEA Party who opposed Obama and his tactics their rallies were peaceful and they cleaned up after themselves in ways none of the blue state citizens have done.  While the red state citizens were absolutely devoted to their beliefs, they never expressed blatant hatred of the blue state citizens.  The issue was the president in office at the time and it was confined to political activism and not directed personally towards any Obama supporters.

Today we are embroiled in a faux impeachment process that is illegal in its nature and operating behind closed doors which is contrary to the original intent of our founders.  We have blue state activists (Antifa) attacking citizens with whom they disagree with them and causing these people bodily injuries.   President Trump’s rally in Minnesota had blue state activists attack red state Trump supporters with several blue state activists attacking single individuals and causing injuries upon them.  None of this was provoked by any physical act.   The only provocation was the mere presence of people who support President Trump.

As we head to the 2020 election the activities of the left are obviously full of hatred for the right.  Not just the president but the people who support him as well.   The leadership of the left in congress have done nothing to reduce the violence nor have they said anything to condemn it.  The rhetoric from the democratic/blue state/left is fueling this violence and it will only get worse.  If things get really out of hand, people will end up being injured seriously or worse.

I have written of Civil War II and it seems more likely to come about than ever before as I consider the situation we are in.  The unbridled hatred of the left for their opponents and President Trump has spilled into our communities across the nation and I am quite sure it will only get worse.  All the while, the ones who are making this situation worse by acting in more and more aggressive ways including violence is the left/blue/liberals.  I cannot recall an incident where a conservative/red/deplorable did anything to deserve such violent and active hatred.

The left is tearing this nation apart.  They are willing to destroy the civil debate in order to silence their opposition.  Only a desperate and ruthless individual or group of individuals would consider this to be healthy or even permissible in a civil society.  I am left with the conclusion that in the very near future this hatred will spawn a battle between the opposing parties that will be without precedence in our history with the exception of the shelling of Fort Sumter in 1861.   That was an act of war without any question and if the left continues their violence and hatred, we will end up in the same place.  CWII.

Only a fool, or an evil genius would encourage open violence and warfare between political enemies and they would do it purely to manipulate the situation in an effort to use it to their advantage.  That I am even considering thoughts such as this reflects the awareness I have of the serious and deadly threat that continued violence by the left poses.  It is the likes of Antifa and others who are raising the level of discord and violence and not the red/deplorable/conservatives.  Where our nation goes from here through the next election is up to the left as far as whether it  will be more violence and hatred or not.  If deaths and massive damages occur as a result of their misplaced aggression, it is the democrats fault for not maintaining a civil and decent conversation.

Democrat’s self loathing and their hatred of America

It occurred to me that the only way someone would act to destroy the very means of their lifestyle and existence would be as a result of pure self hatred and the belief that they do not deserve what they have.  Only this kind of negative self-loathing animus would be sufficient to commit an act equal of sinking your own life boat.  Worse yet, in shark infested waters.

When someone mentally enters into a self destructive rage it is almost impossible to reason with them.  This is the same nature as the Antifa movement as well as the present crop of democratic candidates for president.  It’s bad enough that they are intent on sinking the life boat that is the United States but they also want to drag the entire nation down with them.  They have openly stated their goal of ending the country as it was founded and creating a new full governmental control system they call socialism.  What they are ignoring is the history  of socialist nations and how they fall into tyranny rather quickly.

Just how determined are these liberals??  You have to wonder because some of them are willing to resort to violence in order to defeat the civil order and gain control.  I cannot recall a movement that advocated violence as it sole means of persuasion like Antifa does.  Maybe in the 60’s there were a few small groups but in Antifa we are looking at a nationwide movement abetted by the democratic party.  To me, this resembles insurrection but hey, I am only a conservative.  What do I know?

It would be very easy to liken the current political atmosphere with that of pre-communist Russia or pre-Nazi Germany.  A political party that is using intimidation and condemnation as tactics to move their agenda forward.  While the genocide that followed both of those movements does not seem to be in the offing, I am alarmed at how willingly the democrats have gone all in with the notion of condemning America the very nation that has provided for them and allowed them to pursue their own desires.

So, as well as looking at the present scenario in the nation be aware of the democrats wish to drag us down with them in the dissolution of the founding of our homeland.  How far will the democrats and their minions go I am not certain but I am quite sure we have not seen the worst they will do yet.

Revolutions started in the recent past in the same manner that we see our politics going in the present.  Some unrest and demonstrations followed by some civil disobedience (Antifa goes way beyond this already) and then direct attacks meant to destabilize the nation.  Coupled with a constant political diatribe of anti America propaganda we see the coordinated attack upon our home and source of our liberty and freedoms.

Always keep in mind that our futures are tied to those of these liberal miscreants and if they get their way we will suffer for sure under their ‘green new deal’ or whatever they call their new ‘utopia’.  Be vigilant and connected and we will see where or how far this goes.
