Here is the freedom the Progressive-Democratic Party and its Leftist supporters will allow.
The Association of Library Service to Children‘s (ALSC) board voted unanimously on Saturday to rename the “Laura Ingalls Wilder Award” as the “Children’s Literature Legacy Award.”
Why? Because her books depicted the stereotypes of a bygone age, and so she must be purged. This is on a par with “liberal” schools purging books by “old, dead, white guys” from their literature curriculum, as though those thoughts, ideas, philosophies had no impact on the evolution of Western Civilization.
We have the Southern Poverty Law Center labeling Conservatives variously as terrorists or Nazis. We have Facebook and Twitter censoring conservative news reports and accounts, all in the name of blocking “fake” news.
Then there’s the Progressive-Democrat Congressmen.
Recall the intern who yelled “Mr. President, f— you!” across the Capitol Rotunda. She works—still—for Senator Maggie Hassan (D, NH). The intern was suspended, but Hassan has kept her on Hassan’s payroll.
There’s House’s Hispanic Caucus heckling President Donald Trump in the Capital Building, disrupting his activities.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D, CA) has called for anyone working in the Executive Branch to be harassed wherever they go—restaurants, gas stations, department stores, she named it. And not just protest: harass and drive, physically, from the public square.
The Progressive-Democrats in Congress actively oppose any sort of immigration reform—especially including securing our borders—in large part because they oppose anything Republican, but in equally large part because they don’t want the US to have secure borders; they don’t believe we Americans should be able to determine for ourselves who we let in and under what circumstances. Never mind that this includes violent criminals, drug purveyors, terrorists. It’s true that these are a small minority of those who want to enter the US, but the damage these persons do to our communities can be catastrophic. Those Congressmen don’t seem to care, though, so deeply imbedded are they in their open borders ideology.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D, NY) even has said in so many words
The only way we’re going to work with him [Trump] is if he moves completely in our direction and abandons his Republican colleagues[.]
Violence is well within the Progressive-Democrats’ and their Leftist supporters’ tool kit.
We have the Left driving a White House Press Secretary and her family from a restaurant, with the restaurant owner’s enthusiastic assistance. We have Left thugs physically confronting the Florida Attorney General and her family at a movie theater. We have Left thugs driving the DHS Secretary and her family from a restaurant. These thugs also “gathered” at her home to continue the assault.
Keep in mind Waters’ call.
We have BLM assaulting speakers and preventing them from speaking. We have Antifa thugs attacking conservative rallies. We have Left thugs bringing flamethrowers to a far right rally.
And a Leftist murderer wannabe shot up a Republican baseball practice, wounding several and nearly killing House Republican Whip Steve Scalise.
We have the Left publishing the (stolen) personal contact information—including home addresses—of the men and women of ICE and their families with “encouragement” to go to those homes and harass the agents and their families.
Hollywood especially enjoys attacking the women of the Trump administration.
Chelsea Handler called Sarah [Sanders, WH Press Secretary] a “harlot” and “trollop” on her show.
Jimmy Kimmel mocked her [Melania Trump’s] accent
And Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c___.”
And Peter Fonda called via his Twitter account to “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.”
The NLMSM is in on the act, too.
Jennifer Rubin wrote that it is “both natural and appropriate for decent human beings to shame and shun the practitioners” of Trump’s immigration policy.
And there’s Ali Watkins, late of The New York Times, who had affairs with two of her…sources…in order to get “leaks” of anti-Trump information. It’s true enough that Watkins is no longer with the NYT, but only because she got caught. The NYT turned blind eye to her escapades for as long as they could.
This is what we can look forward to if the Progressive-Democrats gain control of the House or Senate, much less if they gain control of both. Not only will we be free to speak only what the Progressive-Democrats permit us to speak, to read only what the Progressive-Democrats will permit us to read, to worship only within the parameters permitted by the Progressive-Democrats, they will violently suppress any effort to do otherwise.
Make no mistake, either: this will come to pass if we sit on our hands come voting time this fall.
