There is a Chinese curse that says, “May you live in interesting times.” We are certainly there. We are at a time when the blatant hypocrisy before us would be laughable if not so doggone serious. What ails America today is the complete and abject relativism of the progressive socialist left when it comes to moral, constitutional, and judicial matters...truth. Truth is not situational or subjective, but that is what the left wishes us to believe. Truth to them is rooted in their ideological agenda, all else be damned. It is the greatest evidence of Machiavellian thought; their ends will always justify their means. And their ends shall be attained by any means necessary.
During the 2020 election cycle, Joe Biden made the abhorrent claim that being Black was contingent upon voting for him. He infamously asserted, "if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." Doggone, what shall I list as my ethnicity on my ATF Form 4473 the next time I go to purchase a firearm, as a law-abiding citizen? The new line of attack for the progressive socialist left in America is to denigrate anyone and everything as racist. It is what we are witnessing as cultural Marxism manifests in absurdities such as critical race theory and equity programs. To the left, it is simple, divide America into two categories, oppressors and oppressed.
Fast forward to today and there is no debate that progressives, socialists, Marxists, statists, and communists have but one goal in mind. It is the objective articulated by Barack Obama, America's first openly socialist president, in the final days of the 2008 election. He stated at a rally in Columbia, Missouri, "we are just five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."
Have you ever wondered which group is the most “extreme political organization in the United States?” Perhaps the Ku Klux Klan? How about Antifa? Maybe the Weather Underground? Or what about the Westboro Baptist Church crowd? Nope. According to President Joe Biden, the most extreme political organization is “those MAGA people.”
When tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide -- Col. Allen West I have shared the aforementioned quote often, mainly when addressing the scourge of Islamic jihadism and terrorism in the West. However, there is a clear and present reason to apply this same quote to present day America and the scourge of progressive socialism.
