There’s something happening in this country that is scaring the leftists into a mocking frenzy. Anytime the liberals fear someone or something they mock it. Ronald Reagan was called Ronald Ray-gunz, the Tea Party people were slandered as tea baggers, Rush Limbaugh was labeled an out of control buffoon (yet he
held the highest ratings in radio) and now comes Glenn Beck. Beck’s message is one of restoring honor to America by promoting Christian values and giving our children heroes they can look up too. That outrageous message is the ultimate fodder for mockability. John Stuart has turned most of his political parody to deriding and mocking Glenn Beck and the more he does, the more powerful Beck becomes.
The right is mocked for being the party of no because they want fiscal restraint, your average American is mocked and called bigot for wanting secure borders and controlled immigration. Average Americans were again mocked and called homophobes for wanting to keep marriage between a man and a woman. The average American is strongly in support of Arizona’s attempt to deport illegal aliens whom the left mischaracterizes as xenophobic. The leftists have chastised them severely. But, when the rabid left starts mocking the average American and the issues they support they are really awakening a sleeping giant.
The radical left and their socialist agenda, with all their hate, division, corruption and bureaucratic policies is what has spurred on a backlash of tens of millions of people to suddenly appear on the political horizon, like an army ready to do battle. Tea Party activists and their numbers are growing daily and their influence is being felt in Washington, known for its self-centered indifference to the will of the people.
This ground swell of activism is what has leftists in a state of apoplectic shock, so much so that they have desperately resorted to old tactics like hate mongering through race baiting and class warfare. But, this old communist rhetoric is having an unintended and completely reverse effect. Their opposition is growing stronger and they are clueless to explain why?
The far left just doesn’t get how someone like Glenn Beck can call for a rally in Washington D.C. and have nearly a half million people show up and cheer at his every word. Beck’s camp outnumbered a leftist counter-rally by La Raza and Al Sharpton, et al, by 5 to 1. Ironically, the vitriol in their rabid leftwing hate speeches only reflected their fear and frustration with Beck and his followers.
I have no idea where this is all going, but if I could guess I think we’re in the beginning of a great moral revolution where faith, traditional family values and patriotism are uniting patriots across America in a way that hasn’t been seen since our first revolution.
The average American is fed up and they willing to take extreme measures to restore America’s idealism and put us back on track to a free society with a limit governance and a judicial system that respects the Constitution.
Thomas Jefferson was right when he said, “”God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. …And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”
