That seems to be the mindset of multitudes today. I sometimes become amused at their denial or pretense that they are the misunderstood victim. The image of the TV Steve Urkel on TV sitcom Family Matters. His famous line was, “Did I do that?” Yes, Steve, you did it and yes, people we are responsible for our actions.
I laughed some time back when P.J. O’Rourke declared: “Liberals have invented whole college majors – psychology, sociology, and women’s studies – – to prove that nothing is anybody’s fault.” Now, I am not suggesting there is no value in those studies but his statement that the objective was to give everyone a free pass from responsibility and accountability was what triggered my response. I laughed because he had the daring to say it and cried because that condition is so prevalent it is frightening.
We are in an era where the weaponized intelligence and law enforcement arms of the federal government are being employed to destroy some and protect others depending on their status in the ‘Old Boy Crony Community’ in Washington. We have witnessed the media become transformed from news reporting agencies to news-making propaganda arms of political parties and activism objectives and causes.
The incessant projecting and blame-shifting that is transpiring is more than troubling it is dangerous and a threat to our Republic and Freedom. The hatred for Donald John Trump was so pronounced that the political establishment utilized every tool they could find to destroy him and anyone supporting his objectives. I agree he can be quite caustic and crude, but he attempted to do most of what he declared he wanted to do for us, the American citizens. He, like Ronald Reagan, sought to restrict the government rather than allowing the government to continue restricting us. I believe that was the intent of our Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
The media was the voice of the FBI and the Leftists spreading the lies that were debunked regarding Russia Gate. They have not stopped, and they keep adding to the list of things they spin all designed to restrict the citizen and strip us of our inalienable rights. They are hell-bent on ensuring that Donald J. Trump will never again be able to run for president. Will they succeed? I don’t know but with the turncoats like Romney and others in the Republican Party, they may well succeed.
We have witnessed the ‘mostly peaceful protests’ as the media and Democrats describe the riots, looting, burning, and destruction in America. The reaction of law enforcement, district attorneys, the Justice Department, and the media is to decry any violence and justify those actions, and insist it is not the fault of the rioters, but the fault of those of us who support the Constitution, the Bible, and Life. We are the oppressors in their view and those committing acts of violence and crimes in protest are the victims. It’s not their fault and they have no accountability. That mindset will bring down the Republic.
The more recent event in Waukesha, Wisconsin where the inane or insane act by the District Attorney to grant no bail or low bail to Darrell Brooks, Jr. resulted in his driving an SUV into a Christmas parade, killing innocent citizens. This is one of the dozens of events that resulted in the loss of life or property by innocent people because of the woke mentality of white oppression being the blame for all crimes and problems regarding racial relations and within minority communities. Whatever happened to personal responsibility and holding the guilty accountable?
Now, let’s consider the infamous Alec Baldwin. His assertion should win him an Oscar for playing the part of an innocent victim. He blames the evil gun for killing Halyna Hutchings. He says that he never pulled the trigger although others on the set said he did, and the trigger pull was not part of the script. He admits to releasing the hammer but denies pulling the trigger. I’m sure he will find a way to blame Trump or those of us who support him. After all, It’s not his fault, he is an innocent victim. Yeah, and pigs fly over my house daily bothering my unicorns eating green cheese from the moon.
How about Stacey Abrams among others that although she lost the election insists, she actually won. Maybe it’s because she identifies as the governor of Georgia. At the same time, she was claiming that she won but the election was stolen from her blasted President Trump for his challenge to the way the presidential election was handled in Georgia. Seems like speaking out of both sides of the mouth to me.
We faced a Christmas season where organized theft rings in San Francisco and other municipalities in America, mostly in Democratic-led cities stripped stores of their products. The state Attorney General shouted that his successful prosecution of some of the criminals and believed it would deter others. Rob Bonta successfully navigated the court to sentence five of the six thieves he prosecuted. Thieves who stole and fenced millions worth of merchandise. What did they get?
Danny Drago, one of the thieves has not been sentenced but according to the record, Flower was sentenced to three years in state prison, but the judge agreed to spare her from that time behind bars if she completes two years’ probation and spends 364 days in San Mateo County jail. Morales and Villanueva were sentenced to probation. Villatoro was sentenced to probation and 30 days jail time. Wow! I’m impressed with those heavy sentences for theft of millions, the destruction of private property, and the disruption of the lives of the community around them. I hope you can see my tongue firmly planted in my cheek and sense my sarcasm.
The illustrious Attorney General Rob Bonta believes this will deter others from committing crimes. His assertion to such made me laugh, cry, become angry and I had to restrain myself from throwing something at my television. When you add to that the Soros-funded policies of District Attorney Chesa Boudin to release people from jail unless they threatened public safety. Non-accountability for crime resulted in the forced release of a woman who stole $40,000 worth of merchandise.
America, we are living in a time where everyone (one the Left) is a law to themselves and doing what is right in their own eyes. That is a dangerous situation because human beings are not angels and in our era of moral failure that endangers every law-abiding, God-fearing, morally conscious citizen. When marauding bands of criminals can rove through cities and communities with impunity and find the media, the woke prosecutors, and politicians insisting they are not at fault but victims, we are in danger of losing the Republic.
I can envision a time when every citizen must be armed to the teeth to protect his or her home, family, life, and property. The idea of victimization being advanced by the woke community is a dire threat to peaceful existence and will disrupt our Republic. If we want to keep our Republic and Freedom, we MUST oust the corrupt and incompetent politicians and bureaucrats and restore America to Constitutionalism and restore our moral mooring.
God bless you and God bless America.
