Opinion written by George McClellan:
Michael Moore, Hollywood film maker and the human personification of Jabba the Hutt, relishes over the lefts’s campaign against Republican Town Hall meetings wanting to compare their Anti-Trump rants to Tea Party meetings. Moore opines that what’s happening now ‘Makes the Tea Party Look Like Preschool.’ “Oh Contraire!” The difference lies in the results…We Won!
That’s his opinion of course. For what it’s worth I reckon a better comparison would be that the Tea Party’s grass roots organizational success’s and political achievements makes the Left’s Anti-Trump Town Hall protests look like Mexican Prison riots.
This business will run out of steam so long as the Republicans stand their ground and not relinquish either their stage or the microphone. The media is pushing the anti-Trump narrative but, as Trump has said, ”nobody believes them anymore.” He right! Viewers are getting weary of the Left’s hysterical attempt to discredit Conservatives generally and Trump specifically.
Conservatives, especially as organize Tea Parties, have been issued an early warning about complacency. We won it all, we laid it in the hands of the Republican Party and we hoped they knew what to do with it. I am not sanguine that they really understand the victory we gave them.
Donald Trump, not a Republican by their definition, is our personification of “Obi Wan Kanobi” and the old Republican party, what’s left of ‘em, lurking in their Death Star, are puzzled about what to do. They can resist the inevitable, but they can’t reverse it. Confused, they can’t go back and repackage their former message and expect the base to accept it, or their candidates, so, all they are left with is dragging their heels leaving the always ready Left to take advantage of the lull, step in and clog up the gears. It’s our game now and Trump is our President.
Tea Party’s cannot afford for one minute allowing Obama’s paid Leftists agitators to go unchallenged. The revitalizing attempts by demoralized local Democrats to change their message should be challenged too, at every turn. Op-Ed’s, letters to the editors, twitter comments, public meetings and Facebook entries, all are ours to use or lose. Let’s use them because the Left’s message is a rotten one and it is our responsibility to help it decay.
We won it all and now we must demand that our Representatives and Senators stand their ground. We can no longer trust somebody else to take the reins and push the conservative agenda. We all must put our shoulder to the wheel and push back: “There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!”….Mario Savio, US Berkeley, 1965.
We have arrived at that very point Mario Savio envisioned at Berkeley in 1965. It cannot be considered for a moment that the Progressive Democrats should snatch our victories away by threats, intimidation and riot. Theirs is a failed philosophy, tried and failed again and again. It’s time to renew and strengthen that what we already knows works. Participating government, freedom of choice, speech, religion, freedom from perversion and criminals predators here illegally. We must stand our ground and insist our representatives “Stand and Deliver.” They must be reminded they are vulnerable and they must do the job we sent them there to do.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (24Feb17)
