“We, The Extremists”

WATCH: AMAC CEO Rebecca Weber break down this article in a BFA Special!

Forget “We, the People.” According to Democrats, the GOP’s “Commitment to America,” defending free speech (1st Amendment), free exercise of religion (1st Amendment), right to keep and bear arms (2nd Amendment), security from unreasonable search and seizure (4th Amendment), respect the Supreme Court (Article III), ending inflation, restoring affordable energy and accountability – is “extremist.”

As previewed in Biden’s Philadelphia speech, Republicans – all who voted for Trump in 2016 or 2020 – are officially “enemies of the state,” “undermine democracy,” and are “extremists.” In effect, 74 million Americans are now “enemies of the state,” one-party rule preferable to two.

Before we go further down this rabbit hole, understand these are the exact words of a sitting president, Mr. Biden, and a sitting House Speaker, Ms. Pelosi. They are echoed – as cue cards recirculate – by Vice President Harris and Majority Leader Schumer.

The naked idea is, if you have nothing to be proud of, call your political opponent “extremists,” try to inflame them, then claim a need to shut them down, raid their homes, subpoena their private documents, intimidate them, chill them, meet competing ideas with denials, appeals to “democracy,” and ridicule, hoping you can outshout them.

Where does that strategy come from? Radical leftist Saul Alinsky who advocated societal transformation, leftist rules for combat, and said “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” because “it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.” In other words, you can make them look the way you want them to and then hammer them with raw power.

Some will think this is too much and ascribes too much ingenuity, duplicity, and ill will to Democrats in the White House, House, and Senate – all of whom dread relinquishing power to the popular will, but think about it.

Are the principles articulated by the distilled “Commitment to America,” like the 1994 “Contract with America,” including constitutional fidelity, free speech, worship, and self-defense, a stable currency, limited government, energy independence, and accountable government really “extreme?”

Would George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, or for that matter Abe Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, or Ronald Reagan think so? Not likely, they all spoke plainly for less government, more accountability, constitutional integrity, trust in our institutions, respect for the Supreme Court (even when they lost politically), not to mention lower taxes (including Kennedy, Reagan, and the Founders), not what the Democrats push now.

So, who are the radicals, the extremists, the unhinged gluttons for power, hellbent on federal control of what the Constitution says belongs to the individual, local and state government, taking from “We, The People” for “They, the Powerful?” Just think about it, this is not hard.

So, how do everyday Americans respond to this? If you are a moderate Democrat, thoughtful Independent, or Republican of most stripes, you must step back – and ponder what is afoot. When has a president ever roundly condemned tens of millions of Americans, raided the homes of political opponents, and called the opposing party an “enemy of the state?”

More broadly, ask – is this healthy for a Republic, how representative democracy is supposed to work? Is a “one-party should rule” idea more akin to the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and Venezuela, or America? Is open debate bad or good? Is this kind of combat – shutting down opposition voices – constitutionally faithful or closer to an abrogation of the Constitution?

And where does such behavior lead? When one party demonizes the other in such stark, non-logical, purely emotional, plainly provocative ways, no room for discussion, what does that do to civic dialogue?  Make it better or worse? What does it do to dignity in the political process, enhance it or place it at risk?

And – as we watch political violence against Republicans rise, without Democrat comment, how do we assess that development? Not only did leading Democrats push political violence – which is anti-constitutional – in 2020 in 200 cities, before and after the Dobbs decision in 2022, but they were shockingly silent last week when a fired-up Democrat ran over a young Republican for “extremism” and another inflamed Democrat shot an elderly woman handing out pro-life literature.

Follow me here. This is more than unhealthy, it is anti-American. To permit an implicit – at times explicit – appeal to anti-Republican violence is wrong, just as anti-Democratic political violence would be. A nod to using any means to silence those trying to keep legally protected rights alive – is profoundly wrong. 

When those who advance ideas central to the preservation of fundamental rights, rights enshrined – legally, historically, and politically – in our Constitution, are deemed “extremists,” the Republic is on thin ice. When those trusted to preserve textual liberties look the other way, the Republic is malfunctioning.

The goal right now – among Republicans, and all vilified for support of opposing ideas – is to remain calm, focused, keep your temper, humor, and endure the offense, but then vote firmly to end the careers of those who explicitly, or by nodding consent, believe this kind of behavior passes muster. It does not, should not, and – if we are to preserve the integrity of the Republic – cannot.

If “We, The People” – by just holding ideas opposed to leftist Democrat monopoly power – are suddenly dubbed “We, The Extremists,” then perhaps it is time to reexamine what this new version of Democrats is up to. From where a constitutionally and historically faithful voter sits, things just do not look right.

The position of the Democrat Party to anyone who objects to their socialist policies is completely consistent with how current and past socialists and communist leaders have always portrayed their political enemies. From Lenin, Statlin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Pol Pot, Robert Mugabee, Hugo Chavez and many others, the vilification of anyone who opposes their repressive, authoritarian policies is always labeled as either extremists or enemies of the state to be hunted down and either imprisoned or eliminated. That is simply how the left frames their opposition for public consumption. Since they cannot defend their policies based on their objective merits, they must resort to a blanket condemnation to crush any potential objective examination of what their policies actually succeed in delivering to the masses they claim to want to help and lead to a better future. Ultimately, once a socialist and communist leader and their parties have achieved sufficient power, they all drop any pretense of being “for the people” and instead rule as the brutal, authoritarian regimes that they truly are.

It is well past time for the various authors who write these opinion pieces to stop equivocating on what the modern Democrat Party has become. Today’s Democrat Party is virtually unrecognizable from the one that existed 30 or 40 years ago. Gone is any pretense of being “pro-American” or standing for any of the values expressed in the Constitution. The Socialists that worked their way into the Democrat Party in the early years of the 20th century, now completely control and set all policies for the modern Democrat Party. So-called “moderation” no longer exists and the few remaining old timers within the party still in favor of it are being excised from the Democrat Party in favor of “Progressive” (Socialist) candidates. Today’s Democrat Party is in reality America’s Socialst Party in everything by its name, Their policies and agenda are completely consistent to any other socialist regime around the world. Again, it is well past time that all authors of these opinion pieces stop equivocating on the true nature of the Democrat Party and be completely honest with the American public.

As an independent, who has voted both ways over several decades. I will be voting a straight Republican ticket until the grave. Joe Biden guided me directly to this decision. Nancy, Que Mala, chuckle, and friends cemented this decision. At 69 I know that the dimwits will not be able to repair the damage and win back a following before my days are up.

Democrats are just waiting for some Republican to strike down a Democrat so they can scream “See told you Republicans are terrorists”. Don’t fall for this! We all must hold our cool and let the Dems fall into their own trap as they look like the idiots they are! JUST VOTE THEM OUT every chance we can! This is a real turn the other cheek moment and God will prevail!

Things with the Democrats have not been “right” for decades. Jimmy Carter was in Never Never Land and even Bill Clinton was much more interested in violating a girl barely out of her teens than he ever was in securing us against Moslem terrorists. He was completely missing in action against our mortal enemies and very much into the distraction of fooling around with his latest sex focus.
Things got really crazy when Obama was voted into office. As a candidate, Obama promised to be a uniter who worked for all Americans. As a president, he divided us along racial lines — playing the constant community organizer card and slandering law enforcement as strongly as his chief racial advisor, Al Sharpton. Any citizen who was closely listening to Obama knew that Obama was working much harder for the fringe groups than he was for patriotic Americans. Traitor Joe is the logical political extension of those negative radicals who would much rather destroy our Constitution than work within its laws and traditions. The Democrats stink up everything they claim to control. Being called a racist and a fascist by the likes of Biden and Pelosi is usually, actually, a badge of virtue.

We need to make red states true red. Don’t let dims in. Give companies tax breaks to steal them from blue states to help them go broke faster. Refuse to let them use our money for blue states. If they do come to red states make them pay taxes for both parties for 4 years. Eventually the blue states will fail. Knowing it was the red states. paying more taxes in then blue states

Sadly, we are returning to the days of the French Revolution. Robespierre, in his 1794 speech referred to those on his side of the ideology as ‘virtuous individuals’. That is how the Dems perceive themselves, as opposed to the non Democrats. “In order to achieve honorable pursuits, terror is essential…confiscation of properties of those who oppose the Revolution. Enemies of the people are those who or anyone who speaks against the National Convention (the Dems in our case)”. This bares terrifying resemblance with those terrible times. We need strong Republican politicians that see things for what they are and don’t adopt lukewarm positions when is time to fight the Communist ideas.

It has been said that Americans are conservative about a radical concept — that of government of, by and for the people. Our constitution is a plainly written but complex amalgamation of ideas and concepts to keep government from abusing its citizenry. The fact that Representatives, Senators, Presidents and Supreme Court Justices were all to be chosen by different groups (people, State Legislatures, Electoral College, Executive appointment with Senate approval) was designed to overcome the evils of “democracy” and protect the political minorities from the ruling classes was truly clever! We need to restore the Constitution to its original intent!

I think it is refreshing to now have a Supreme Court making rulings on Constitutional Principals rather than political notions!

Remember B. Franklin’s description of democracy “…two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner…”

Seems leftists all need to attend schooling on how to lie & manipulate before they can run for office…Biden has perfected the Art of the Lie in his 47 years of feeding at the public trough [ever notice how few Dems have ever had a real job in their adult life: Schumer, Clinton, Pelosi, Biden, et al]

After reading this article and reading some of the comments many of us ARE CORRECT! The DEMOCRATS want a 1 RULING Party to CONTROL “ALL OF US” which I believe won’t happen because it would an ALL OUT CIVIL WAR? Not because were Republicans but because OUR FREEDOM is BEING TAKEN AWAY like the CONSTITUTION and the BILL OF RIGHTS and our AMMENDMENTS like the 10th Amendment where state or Federal can come in and TAKEOVER and CONTROL GAS, ELECTRICITY or any other ENTITY! If they think Chevron or PG&E is GOUGING US they have the right to take it over and “CONTROL EVERYTHING and PRICE IT THE WAY THEY WANT”! That’s what 10th Amendment says! Many of us are outspoken and CORRECT so it’s nice to see that others need to UNDERSTAND the RAMIFICATIONS of what the DEMOCRATS are trying to RAM DOWN OUR THROATS and CONTOL US! This is why Republican, Democrat and Conservatives need to under stand that WE STAND IN UNISON and VOTE REPUBLICAN this Nov. 8th! Recently a letter in the news said that Tom Patti(Repub) voted full Democrat for major tax INCREASES in California? But it was actually JOSH HARDER who wrote this ridiculous LYING LETTER an put it out there! When actually JOSH HARDER is an OPERATIVE of Nancy Pelosi! Anything she says HE DOES! This “IS” the DEMOCRATIC WAY for “NON-THINKERS and LIARS like HARDER”! Wonder if the KISS@$$ gave the teacher an APPLE! This is how DEMOCRATS THINK or they “CAN’T” because they really LACK BRAIN CELLS LIKE JOEY! I believe OBAMA is in his 3rd TERM and is BEHIND the SCENES with others CONTROLING a great deal of this! We need OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF BACK President Donald TRUMP and get this CRAP STRAIGHTENED OUT so we “CAN GO FORWARD GOD’S WAY” and not SATAN’S WAY UNDER DEMOCRATS DISASTEROUS PLAN! Democrats could NEVER DEFEND there PLANS because THEY “FAILED IN ALL OF THEM”!! No ONE’S LIFE IMPROVED IN ANY OF THEM unless they were in a UNION and even some of those are calling Democrats are FAILURES for what there doing to the AMERICAN PEOPLE!

When these Democrat Socialist/Communist Pigs are removed from office we, the People of the United States, need to make sure that these pigs pay dearly for their actions to destroy the Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our Republic. After the attacks from the Democrats on Republicans, conservatives, and President Trump, now is not the time to show compassion for these pigs but make sure they are held accountable for their acts of treason. Investigate them thoroughly and remove their ill gotten financial gains plus impose heavy financial penalties and imprisonment.and/or capital punishment.

Democrats must have forgotten the USSR is the United Soviet SOCIALIST Republic. Communism is Socialism. They are afraid of Russia because Russia stopped being Socialist as it didn’t work for it’s entire 70 years, or more, of rule. If being for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness is Extreme, then count me in. I will never be Socialist and all my votes will be on the side of Liberty. My grand children don’t have the same freedom I have known, and that makes me sad. We must stand up to loss of our rights by our votes, and actions if votes fail.
When government goes astray, ignores rights, and threatens to strip away safety, it loses it’s right to govern. ( Declaration of Independence) The preservation of a free government requires not merely, that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained; but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great barrier which defends the rights of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such an encroachment, exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are tyrants. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves, nor by an authority derived by them, and are slaves. (A Letter by James Madison)

Democrats; masters of deceit, the blame game and lies, lies, lies. The greatest tragedy, so many of their supporters actually believe what they have to say. It boggles the mind that the democrat supporters actually think a radical socialism is a good thing for America. A radical socialism, Marxism, etc. cannot coexist with our Constitution, and our freedom.

Two years have gone by since the 2020 elections nothing was done about the voting. They cheated do you really think they will not cheat again. They have already said (politico) that it will take days after the election to figure out the voting on all the ballots that haven’t been even delivered yet. Probably a10000 mules this time for them to win. Maybe with overvoting in some precincts way over 100% and you say we need to rexamine what this new version of Democrats is up to! Lord help us if that’s all you got. If your not part of the solution your part of the problem. I hope I’m wrong. But I wasn’t wrong about the 2020 elections, covet, but my prayers are that I just get 2 out of 3 right. I have comment on here many times and a lot of people want to get the guns and learn to shoot. I’m 73 white republican and an enemy of the state according to the sitting president. But my faith is not in him.

I spent 30 years in the military from 1962 to 1992 and visited numerous countries to include Russia in 1983 . I was a Democrat voting member until they went radical I am ashamed to admit this however I switched parties after President Clinton and have never voted for that Party since or never will. When a party supports Woke, Critical Race Theory, Defund the Police, march in parades ( Vice President Harris ) call it’s own people radical because they voted for someone other than their candidate should not their homes be raided because they are advocating hate and racial prejudice .
