It backfired. “Clearly, Harvard’s initial decision to invite Manning was intended as a means of celebrating the school’s transgender”wokeness” — the hip new word for being socially conscious.

COLUMN OF THE WEEK
Douglas MacKinnon  9/8

Message to Republicans, conservatives, —and those Americans actually living life rather than protesting life from the cocoon of a trust fund or Mommy's basement: The far-left and the anarchists it sends into the streets to enforce its doctrine will never stop.  Ever.

As we are now seeing, eradicating monuments and names affiliated with the Confederate South is just the beginning.  The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. being the latest to choose political correctness over American history. With each passing day, the list of symbols of our American history which does offend the left and the anarchists and must be censored or destroyed grows. What are their ultimate targets?

For the twenty or so years I worked in and around Washington, DC – be it at The White House, the Pentagon, or in the private sector – once every few months for those two decades, I would set aside a few hours of my time to visit The National Archives and simply stare in wonder at the founding documents of The United States of America. I would look down upon The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and The Bill of Rights and marvel at the genius of the Founding Fathers who not only authored those documents, but who risked all they had — including their very lives — to establish our nation.

Not surprisingly, the removal or destruction of our "Founding Documents" is now the ultimate target of a growing number of anarchists on the left. Why?

For some on the far-left it's because many of our Founding Fathers who authored these documents were slave owners. For others on the far-left, it's because our Founding Fathers were white.  For others on the far-left, it's because many of our Founding Fathers were wealthy for their time. And still for others on the far-left, it's for all those reasons and more.

With regard to the issue of slavery, nothing is more wrong, nothing is more disgusting, nothing is more immoral, nothing is more de-humanizing, and nothing is more obscene than slavery.  Period. Especially when viewed through the prism of the year 2017.

But when viewed through the prism of the mid-1700s, the disgusting, immoral, de-humanizing, and obscene practice of owning slaves was tragically, the norm in many parts of the world. Knowing that to be the truth, does viewing that time period through the prism of 2017 invalidate the genius of our Founding Fathers?  Does it render their sacrifice meaningless?  Does it make the founding documents they authored to establish our nation parchment now to be scorned?  Or even burned?

If a time machine were available, who would not want to go back to right the wrong of slavery and so many others? But none exists. We can't go back and fix it. Knowing that reality, how do we deal with the ugly and quite dangerous new reality which is blossoming today before our very eyes?

A dangerous and truly totalitarian reality created by some on the far-left – and encouraged by the silence of those who know better – which literally now screams at the top of its lungs with faces twisted by hate that the monuments, statues, names, and founding documents which catalog and memorialize the history – good and evil – of our nation, must now be torn down, sand-blasted, burned and never spoken again. Where does it stop? What is next? Who is next?

Which men and women of reason will speak up to stop this madness before it spirals out of control? Is the day soon coming when I will go to the National Archives to visit our founding documents and find their cases empty? The documents removed and maybe even burned by cowardly "leaders" too afraid to stand up to a mob-mentality looking to eradicate the history of The United States of America.

Far-fetched? The alarming censorship and destruction of the last few weeks says otherwise.

OTHER COLUMNS
 “We cannot blame politicians for the spending that places our nation in peril. Politicians are doing precisely what the American people elect them to office to do — namely, use the power of their office to take the rightful property of other Americans and deliver it to them. It would be political suicide for a president or a congressman to argue as Madison did that Congress has no right to expend ‘on objects of benevolence’ the money of its constituents and that ‘charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.’ It’s unreasonable of us to expect any politician to sabotage his career by living up to his oath of office to uphold and defend our Constitution. That means that if we are to save our nation from the economic and social chaos that awaits us, we the people must have a moral reawakening and eschew what is no less than legalized theft, the taking from one American for the benefit of another.”

ARTICLES
Democrats want to cancel the health policies of 180 million Americans….. “what Democrats really had in mind is now clear: They want everyone to lose their insurance and take what government gives them instead. That’s obvious from Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All scheme, rolled out Wednesday with the support of the party’s chief 2020 presidential hopefuls.”
There is a significant bloc of conservatives who believe that Obamacare was always a gigantic bait-and-switch operation. The advocates of this view have consistently said that Obamacare’s true goal was to wreak so much havoc on the health care system that the voters, the vast majority of whom don’t support single-payer, would eventually become so frustrated by the chaos that they would accept any “solution” that promised to make the pain stop. Once that point was reached, the theory goes, the Democrats would be able to get single-payer through Congress.

American progressives have fnally gone all the way to a totalitarian vision, demanding control over not just your behavior, but your thoughts and beliefs. This as the price of simply living without being attacked.
