A LITTLE PERPSECIVE IS CALLED FOR
The high dudgeon of liberal American politicians and their mobs of howling, pussyhat and hijab wearing demonstrators about possible – or even probable – Russian canoodling in the American electoral process is a classic example of “Methinks thou dost protest too much”.
We must ask ourselves, is the issue really Russian intelligence mischief? Or is Russian intelligence mischief being used as a bat with which to bash a president whose demise would validate any undemocratic, supra legal and vile means. For surely, it has not escaped even the dimmest notice that progressive liberals hardly subscribe to democracy, freedom of speech, and majority rule when it is not their speech and their rule that has won the day.
But the bigger question is this: Why the moral outrage at Russia? Does anyone, ANYONE, believe that America’s intelligence operatives are not guilty of the same sort of shenanigans against the Russians, or even against our supposed allies in the West? Why this huge double standard? Why is what’s good for the goose unacceptable for the gander? Or is it, as is abundantly evident, that no one really cares about the games the KGB may be playing. After all, we all know that our operatives do the same thing. But rather this is a convenient club with which to bash a hapless president that the LGBT, radical feminist, PC and Hollywood communities want to terminate with extreme prejudice.
Perhaps this is as good an opportunity as any for reasonable people to say “enough”. Our speech, our values, our freedom of expression are being destroyed by a progressive fascism that brooks no opposition and is extinguishing democracy in real time. If we don’t act soon, and decisively, our universities are doomed and thereby our future, and no sitting president other than one anointed by the radical left will be allowed to fulfill his or her mandate.
