As has been said in the past, DTG doesn’t normally post political pieces except on occasion. This is one of those, because it has everything to do with constitutionalism, preparedness, and traditional American values that have become an anethma to the ‘liberals’ who call themselves, ‘the left’.
First, I don’t really care what your politics are….until whoever, “you” are, call for ‘de-baathification’ for those who may or may not support one or another ‘constitutional’ candidates…
From, “Stop Shouting”, here. Read the whole thing.
Here’s a couple important excerpts:
“OK folks, this has gotten serious. Understand that your class and ideological enemies now are floating the idea that you (and me, brother) are to be subject to some form of political tribunal and “rehabilitation” or adjudication, as the case may be. If you don’t think this is serious, might I remind you of what happens when your group falls into the hands of our class and ideological foe – as an example of the extreme ends of this ideological dipole, I present to you the Katyn Forest Massacre. If you have time, review the 400 page list of the dead. Imagine the format filled in with Americans and you will begin to see where this “progressive” idea has led to in the past.
Back to the title of this article… “De-Baathification” of Iraq. This process saw hundreds of thousands of soldiers, bureaucrats and politicians cast out into society, with no means to support themselves or their families. The nascent insurgency found a deep well of talent in that dismissed talent pool. Debaathification of America would be an ideological cleansing to disenfranchise, unemploy and otherwise make opponents to the entrenched progressive Regime untouchable, as in beyond the pale. Consider it the equivalent of being a resident of Stalingrad and having them take your ration book from you. It is a death sentence!”
“That the regime and its adherents are floating the idea throughout social media that you can be sent to a camp for the thoughtcrime of supporting Donald Trump is troubling and an indicator of the level of fear felt by the establishment facing a potential political upset. Even if you are an “independent” voter, or a “liberal” or “progressive”, this should deeply concern you. One must come to terms with the Rubicon that statements like that make. It is a statement of intent, an indicator of sentiment… signals are being sent that Trump supporters are to be seen as subhuman by the Regime and its adherents/beneficiaries of the existing political order. After dehumanization comes the horror of democide, genocide. If that comes to pass, are Trump supporters to be stripped of legal and Constitutional protections? The Regime has already taken toe-in-the-water test cases with the weaponization of the courts and the IRS against its ideological foes. LIEberals seem to think so, if this telegraphed intent is anything to go by. In the Intel world, we would call it an “indicator”. This one happens to be blinking neon in a dark political night.”
