TGIF – July 20, 2018.

July 20, 2018

Time for the right to wise up.

Over the past week, we have seen an all-out assault on the governmental identity of the United States.

Make no mistake, there is nothing soft about this attempted coup.

The first thing any coup requires is to disarm (in the figurative as well as the literal sense) the opposition.

If you doubt that, note that you have the 44th President standing in front of an audience in Johannesburg, South Africa, taking about the “racist nationalism” of the United States, a long-standing theme of his.

That’s not a new theme for him, or for the left, but it’s the most open indicator of their agenda since he left office.

The meme is, if you are a proud American, it’s because the country is run by a bunch of white male supremacists exercising their toxic masculinity to discriminate against anyone who doesn’t look like them.

Some people are saying that was just a publicity stunt meant to get him back in the spotlight as he starts producing content for his new Netflix ventures.

Maybe so, but he is still the titular head of the Democratic party, and they have been begging him to be more involved in the midterms and in 2020.

It is not helpful that President Trump seems unable to refrain from giving them ammunition in the form of carelessly worded statements and unnecessary malaprops.

That doesn’t mean it was wrong to elect him.  If he wasn’t there, all of this anti-American, anti-democracy tripe would have continued to simmer under the surface, until the country was no longer America. To the extent he has forced the hard left to expose their hand, he has more than done his job.

Now it’s time for him to put his personal ego aside, and get smart about how he continues to do that. This is not just about him.

It’s also way past time for the GOP to poop or get off the pot, to run more openly against the ideology and not just the faces of the left.

Petition? What petition?

To no one’s surprise, California has now invalidated the petition allowing for the question of splitting California into three states to appear on the ballot. Whether or not that’s a good idea, or even feasible isn’t the point.

The point is, those people favoring it did everything they were supposed to do, working within the system to give the people of the state a voice and a chance to vote on it, and the “progressive” government of California gave them a big “screw you.”

Refer to the above post.

Get out there.

OK, so much for the soapbox.  Summer is in full swing.  Get off the couch, unplug the plastic brains, and go do something fun.  It’ll be cold again before you know it.  Summer only happens once a year.  Don’t waste it.
