It is imperative that those who love this country, its history, and its values to cast their vote for President Trump in November. He is, without a doubt, our last line of defense against the radical Left’s plot to bring down America.
For years, conservatives have downplayed the burgeoning Leftist cultural revolution bubbling to the surface in academia, popular culture, and on social media. Too many conservatives were unwilling to engage the Left in the Culture War, and the ceding of the cultural ground is coming back to bite them.
Even now, when America’s streets have been set on fire and monuments have been toppled, too many Republican politicians have refused to speak out against the mob violence for fear of being shamed by the Left.
Here is a newsflash for these feckless leaders: the woke Left will despise you and shame you regardless of what you say or don’t say. Just do your job and protect the people and their property from destruction. Also, start speaking out more vigorously against the mob and see to it that Federal and state anti-vandalism laws are enforced. That shouldn’t be too much to ask.
Where have leaders like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell been during the carnage? Why doesn’t he do something drastic like convene the Senate to address the carnage on America’s streets?
Where is Senator Mitt Romney, who once convinced Republicans that he was actually on their side? He is far too blinded by his hatred of President Trump to take a stand against the mob.
Where are the Republicans in the Senate and the House of Representatives? They are all M.I.A. when our country needs them the most. There are a few notable exceptions such as Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Dan Crenshaw, but they are in the minority.
However, there is one Republican leader that isn’t backing down to the mob, and that person is President Donald Trump. Trump isn’t afraid to speak out against the radical Left. On the eve of July Fourth, he did exactly that. At his Mount Rushmore speech, arguably one of the best he’s ever given, Trump said the following:
“Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our Founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. Many of these people have no idea why they are doing this, but some know exactly what they are doing. They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive. But no, the American people are strong and proud, and they will not allow our country, and all of its values, history, and culture, to be taken from them…
One of their political weapons is “Cancel Culture” — driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and our values, and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America. (Applause.) This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty, must be stopped, and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children, end this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life. (Applause.)
In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us. (Applause.)
Make no mistake: this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing, they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress.”
Regardless of what your personal feelings are about Trump, the truth is that he’s the president we need at this time to combat the radical Left. Many other leaders would be squishy in these perilous times, but not Trump.
He correctly diagnosed the problem and he stands in the way of the Left. If Joe Biden wins in November, the Leftist mob will be further emboldened to tear apart the fabric holding the country together. God forbid the Democrats win the House and Senate as well. If that happens, there would be no coming back. The country would be fundamentally altered forever, and we’d be powerless to stop it.
President Trump may be the last line of defense against the Left, but Conservatives need to help reinforce that line. If they don’t, this country will cease to be and will be America in name only.
