Coup Are You?
Jeff Goldstein, the bandito di tutti bandito of the Right, nails it:
We are witnessing an attempted coup. By our very own President and his Party. Just because this bloodless coup doesn’t come from a man dressed in fatigues wearing a thick mustache and standing on a balcony doesn’t mean it can’t be happening here. It is. And it’s being sold as the only way to end “politicizing” the political, and saving us from the very gridlock that, ironically, is right now the only thing saving us from “fundamental transformation” — with John Boehner and Eric Cantor the last line of defense. God help us.
Dark days are coming. And when they do, we’ll have choices to make. Much as did those who founded this nation.
Dead solid perfect.
It should be noted for the record that Jeff has been trying to get across this message since at least the Spring of 2009, as have I, and I share his frustration at being thought a melodramatic fringe wingnut and fool by the people supposedly on our side in the war to restore our freedoms and liberties. As Jeff writes:
Sorry if I’m coming across as hyper-conspiratorial today. But the truth is, had more people listened to my views after Obama was elected than to the views of the GOP cheerleaders and establishment flacks, we’d be much better prepared by now to deal with what is coming. Not because I’m a genius. But rather because I saw who Obama was, and was never willing to pretend otherwise.
As those of you who experienced the same thing know: all it took to understand what this coalition of Socialists were up to was to do a little research. No extensive study was needed to see that the Left was planning to take the Stealth Coup they had been implementing through their over half-century march through our institutions and bring it out in the open via gaining control of two of the branches of the national government. The Left knew the GOP was run by self-made-clueless putzes who gladly would keep their heads buried in the sand if it meant they still were seated at the table — even if it was the kid’s table.
What we have witnessed over the past four years and, it appears, will continue on over the next four is the overthrow of the government of The United States Of America.
The Left is taking a huge gamble by it’s deliberate destruction of the American Economy. Forces may be unleashed by it that destroy them. The masterminds of the Left know this, but they believe that the cancer know as Leftist Thinking has invaded the souls of enough Americans that no major opposition will be able to organize and wage an effective counter revolution. I’d say the odds are on the Progressive’s side in terms of The United States as a whole, but the Left is ignorant of one very important truth…
The West [Christendom] is an idea that will survive in the hearts and minds of a few of us, just as The United States Of America is an idea that will live on in our souls.
Both are not subject to physical restrictions, so they can carry-on no matter how few believe in them.
It is our duty to those who came before us and those who are yet to be born to preserve that Sword Of Imagination that keeps both ideas alive.
The West and America will survive.
