As the body count, excessive prison sentences, and new arrests related to January 6 pile up, the twisted bloodlust of the Left is on full display.
“They won’t consider the ramifications of branding Americans with whom they disagree politically as ‘terrorists.’”
Many people believe that America is simply too big and too powerful to collapse but many people also believed that about the Soviet Union. No one in 1985 would have believed that the USSR, the mighty "Evil Empire,” would be a disintegrating mess in just a few years. I told that to someone last year who said "But the Soviet Union was a collection of separate countries.” What we have here though is a collection of separate realities which is a much deadlier situation. Could it be that the reason why America is so rapidly unraveling externally is because it no longer exists as a country internally?
The Democratic Party has become a criminally insane, open borders, globalist, anti-meritocracy, anti-white, hate group. May God curse them for destroying our once great nation. The disastrous failure of the American experiment will drastically alter the course of world history.
I remember when liberals used to value due process, free speech, and the rights of individuals over the power of institutions. Political tribalism has shown that these quaint notions were never principles, just political fads from a different era.
Thank you, Julie, for your steadfast courage and perserverance. You are sadly a very lonely voice in journalism reporting on this travesty. I hated what happened on January 6th at my beloved Capitol, the centerprice of my career for 40 years, but the injustice in display by DOJ in its aftermath is worse. Much worse.
God Damn You, Leftists. God Damn You supposed 'republicans' like Tim Kelly. I did NOT get shot at to support this.
This just sickens me (as do all these phony "prosecutions"). This young man's family will go through years of living hell because Democrats will do and say ANYTHING to stay in power. God will judge them.
Meanwhile, Julie, YOU are doing God's work - thank you! Just became a (monthly) subscriber; the work you're doing MUST continue. Praying for you, this young man's family, along with the many others being falsely persecuted, and our nation.
This is a tragic testament to just how caustic and malignant the apparatus has become. This young man’s life is placed on the altar of “state-worship” where soulless apparatchiks will plunge the knife.
But, before looking exclusively @ the Left, gaze deeply at the party of Cheney, Romney, McConnell, Pence, et al.
What kind of law enforcers, prosecutors and judges are these that would “just follow orders”...but, with such self-righteous zeal? Well...we have seen this movie before, haven’t we?
I am incensed by this article. I doubt that my ancestors who fought for freedom were more incensed. We have an out of control government which uses it's powers to persecute and prosecute dissidents. These idiots weren't even in power on January 6. True Americans, if there are any left, should rise up against these tyrants. Reflecting Donald Trump would be a first step. I fear for my children and grandchildren.
This is just heartbreaking. All of it is....the suicides, the hideous sentences, unconstitutional detainments, the whole freaking witch hunt! Praying that these evil ghouls are held accountable SOON.
Thank you for all you do Julie.
And, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this week that "A group of social-media users and two states allege that numerous federal officials coerced social-media platforms into censoring certain social- media content, in violation of the First Amendment. " So, the same FBI which is viciously persecuting these innocent people broke our highest law during the 2020 election cycle.
The government is operating without authority and is therefore illegal and illegitimate and yet what is it that is called extreme? Today it is recognizing and exclaiming facts. J6 was not extreme except, as defined, by those engaging to make it appear to be extreme. Destroying the Capital and government was not the aim of those legitimately protesting. However, if they returned and did so next week, based on the government’s reaction since that day, history would not regard their actions as extreme. Should it be successful then history, written by the victors, would regard it as necessary. And if they were not successful the country would still be populated by those who remain defiant and seek every opportunity to target the illegitimate government and its employees.
This is who these people are. They have sympathy for murders, rapists, human traffickers, but threaten their power and their images of themselves, and the mask drops. The *only* think they value is power. Remember that when putting any kind of faith in them.
Absolutely appalling behavior by the Marxists' who inhabit and staff the federal government's Stasi-style-Secret-Police in Moscow-on-the-Potomac. But, as the Soviet-Show-Trials continue in that disgusting city, it becomes more and more apparent that we truly are living in either a real-life totalitarian state or an alternate universe. The callousness of those despicable creatures who hide behind their toxic social media in our Culture is jaw dropping, to say the least. It reminds me of something I heard for years from Rush when he stated, presciently, that the radical left thinks their opponents are not just wrong but evil. Heartbreaking to watch how protected political speech is now called sedition and has become a rallying cry from the Marxists' who control the Marxist-Democrat-Party with their allies in the PR Department, also known as the Mainstream Media.
As Martin Luther King said: “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” How societies end.
Julie Kelly, Hopefully with your relentless reporting and the terrible tragedies that are taking place How could anyone in Congress stay silent and not try to stop this.I pray for the families during this heartbreaking time in America
I know I'm a broken record on this subject, but we need to negotiate a national divorce while it's still possible to do so peacefully.
Organized street violence in the name of a terrible person (George Floyd) has had a huge negative effect on our national fabric. Imagine what a general strike by 20 million aggrieved conservatives could do.
We should be talking more openly about where our blood-lust politics is taking us, and how we avoid the abyss. Negotiated divorce is the obvious answer.
Some excerpts below from a Quillette review of a book about the irrational side of human nature. The last one says: “One comes away with the sense that civilization operates on narrow margins and is always on the verge of collapsing into irrationality.” That sure is the truth.
“Mackay makes the case, often in gory detail, that episodes of collective mania seem to be an inevitable consequence of human nature. Humans in every time and place have cast aside their better judgment and allowed themselves to be caught up in all manner of irrational hoopla.“
“His chapters on the Swabian Peasants’ War and Anabaptist uprisings are terrifying depictions of the end-times frenzy that wreaked havoc on northern Europe throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. The distance between these events in the German-speaking world and, say, the Reign of Terror in France or the Chinese Cultural Revolution is not that great. And the speed with which apparently reasonable people moved from the embrace of a new theological idea to a willingness to torture those whose own theological ideas diverged even slightly is startling.“
“There is plenty to recommend about The Delusions of Crowds. It is laden with great anecdotes and the writing is always engaging. One comes away with the sense that civilization operates on narrow margins and is always on the verge of collapsing into irrationality.”
