I am not in a particularly humorous mood today, so there will be no Friday Funnies.
I will say this very clearly, with no fears or reservations. I want it to be utterly clear just where I stand. I do not now, nor have I ever, supported malicious acts as a means of protest. I do not condone threats of violence on any elected official, for any reason.
In case someone did not understand me, let me say again that I am not supporting any act that threatens any of our government officials. None. Not one.
All it takes is a handful of crazies to create the impression that the political opposition is complicate in the criminal acts that I have condemned. The vast majority of those who do not support this current government or its leftist policies, are not the kind of people who approve of this either.
And the Democratic leadership knows it.
All it takes is an opportunist bunch of politicians who cannot resist embellishment to score political points, and a complicate media that gives them the forum to do so. They want this to be a big deal, so they can justify taking more extreme measures down the road, to solidify their power and control over those who are not in lock-step with them.
So, let's be clear once again. If anyone who stumbles along this blog is tempted to allow their righteous indignation to turn into the kind of rage that leads to violence and criminal threats, just stop it. Stop it now.
There are politicians (like Jim Clyburn, and the President of the United States of America) who find it politically expedient to taunt and dare the crazies to do things like this. They would rather add fuel to the fire, they want discord.
The modus operandi of this current government has been (and still is) to create the illusion that something is far worse than it really is. And what's worse, they use that strategy as a means and a platform to campaign to show people, that they alone are the ones who can put a stop to it.
They never met a problem that couldn't be generated into a crisis. There has never been a crisis they couldn't fix.
All the while, they use fear and intimidation to coerce people to get in line. They use ridicule as a science to berate and goad people into angry responses so they can crack down with more authority. And it only works when people let these bastards manipulate them into their traps.
Everyone needs to stop and stop right now. It is childish, it is wrong, and it's not the kind of America that most decent people want.
