Bringing Down the Left
After nearly a century, with the tacit abetting by a feckless Republican Party over the past 30 years, the Left has succeeded in breaking nearly everything in the political china shop. American society is calculatingly in shambles as race relations, ethnic assimilation and religious freedom have been the target of exploitation and condemnation. The economy is mired in a permanent state of malaise as capitalism has been attacked, relentlessly vilified and hamstrung, resulting in a declining standard of living for the vast majority of citizens. A preponderance of two generations of Americans, in an attempt to convert them into foot soldiers for the cause, have been defrauded and deluded as they know nothing of their country’s history and expect as their birthright guaranteed income and a life without adversity.
The Left, by faithfully executing the strategy as laid out by Saul Alinsky, are now the dominant political and social force in The United States. However, the one factor that none of the icons of the American Progressive movement bothered to consider was: what are they going to do with a nation the size and population of a continent, with a long history of independence and free enterprise, once they vanquished an increasingly spineless opposition? They do not know how to be or what to do as the new governing class. They are incapable of governance as they can only oppose, topple and demagogue. Thus, they are destined to fail. Unfortunately, with that failure will come additional suffering, chaos and displacement for the American people.
In order to accelerate the Left’s demise and minimize the damage, there must be viable opposition and it must rise up from the grass roots including the conservative media -- as the Left owns the Democratic Party and has thoroughly infiltrated as well as browbeaten the Republican Party hierarchy into submission.
The first step, for those who identify as conservatives or independents with conservative leanings, is to admit that the Left is in charge. They have won the battle, but not the war. They are the “Establishment,” as overused as that word may be. As such, they are the enemy, and as the enemy any and all non-violent tactics must be fair game. This change in thinking is crucial. By doing so the primary characteristics of conservatives and right-leaning moderates the Left has exploited over the decades -- timidity and equanimity -- will be eliminated.
The second step is to use the same strategy successfully utilized by the Left against us. Regardless of what one may think of Saul Alinsky his seminal work: Rules for Radicals is a masterpiece in strategic thinking ,insofar as a laying out a methodology and means of defeating one’s political opponents. The 12 rules for radicals are a must read in order to understand the tactics of the Left.
While all 12 rules are applicable, the following are the Alinsky tenets most relevant to the defeat of the Left:
- Rule 5: “Ridicule is a man’s most potent weapon.” While using every opportunity to point out on a consistent and constant basis the failures of the Left, mock them unmercifully for their inane comments and theories lacking in common sense and perspective, such as transgenderism and bathroom access, rape as a by-product of global warming and safe spaces on college campuses. This must be done unapologetically on the floor of Congress, the state houses and any available public or media venue.
- Rule 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Remind the public incessantly, to the point of boredom, that the Left is in charge. What is happening in society and the economy today is solely their doing. This will require demonstrations, sit-ins and massive gatherings to reinforce the message.
- Rule 11: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never fail to relentlessly contrast the overwhelming economic and social success of the past, which are the end-product of conservative policies and principles, with the failures and chaos today. Reinforce the thinking that these same principles will accomplish great things again.
- Rule 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.” Unabashedly, and without remorse, attack the leaders of the Left, their foibles and machinations as well as the institutions that support and underwrite them.
The third step is to stop being the foil for their mindless and threadbare tactics. Cease being intimidated by the rhetoric, falsehoods and threats on social and mainstream media. The only weapon the Left truly has is to strike fear through extortion in the calculated expectation the opposition will sulk and cower in a dark corner -- as it largely has done for decades. If they are so foolish as to use the power of government on a wholesale and unbridled basis to enforce their will, they risk an insurrection they cannot control or defeat. They are too cowardly to do so.
Lastly, do not look to a now discredited Party nor the presumed Republican presidential candidate, who spent the vast part of his adult life as an acolyte of the Progressives, to lead in vanquishing the Left. Neither has the will, inclination or discernment. Whether a new party will rise out of the ashes of the Republican Party, or if it is capable of being transformed, only time and circumstance will tell.
The Left has so entrenched itself in all facets of government, society, academia and the media that their defeat will come about in large part by their own failures and foibles; their collapse is inevitable and predetermined. It is the duty of the nearly 55% of Americans who identify themselves as conservatives or conservative leaning moderates to peacefully accelerate the process in order to minimize the pain and suffering for all Americans.
