I remember vividly the cultural turmoil of the 1960’s highlighting the importance of free speech at the U.C.-Berkeley and other campuses. Though I strongly rejected the youth rebellion and its focus on drugs, free sex, and hatred of the police, I agreed with one tenet.
It stood enshrined in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights and seemed as American as apple pie. I thought the radicals simply wanted equal time. That’s fair in a free society.
I was wrong.
Those same radicals now control many of the leadership positions in government, the media and higher education in the United States. We now know what they wanted all along.
Control. And how do you gain it?
For five decades I have watched liberalism morph into progressivism–and that’s not a good thing.
Being “progressive” sounds forward thinking and cool. However, the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic with its lock downs and numerous governor/mayor edicts has exposed this dangerous philosophy as anything but positive or in favor of progress.
We now see plainly that the only thing progressive about progressivism is tyranny.
Here’s the evidence.
Even before Donald Trump became the president of the United States, a “Resistance Movement” began forming throughout our nation’s political hierarchy to block his leadership and policies.
Hillary Clinton trumpeted the need for “Resistance” after her Electoral College defeat and many Never-Trumpers from both political parties simultaneously joined the chorus.
This week the resistance movement in the House of Representatives, under the leadership of Congressman Adam Schiff, D-CA, opens impeachment hearings on the president. This follows two-and-a-half years of the fruitless Mueller investigation.
Other than being a gigantic waste of the public’s time and money (shouldn’t we be solving important national problems?), I have one simple question:
What are they resisting?
