No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Conservatives can’t give in to leftist bullies who want to silence and cancel us.

My former home state of Georgia, after the logistical nightmare of the 2020 election, passed new voting legislation. Who knew that life as we knew it was coming to an end? The Leftmedia had a total meltdown. As usual, “journalists” began flinging their dung at Republicans, telling us Jim Crow laws are being retuned to the 21st century.

A reading of the legislation on its surface doesn’t even look like what the media and rabid leftists are hyperventilating about. In fact, New York and several other “blue” states have voter restrictions that are in some ways more stringent than Georgia. But one thing about leftists is they never let FACTS stand in the way of a good hit piece. Especially if it’s directed against Republicans.

President Joe Biden was quick to call it the return of Jim Crow laws. Amazingly, the Washington Post “fact-checker” gave Biden’s false allegation “four Pinocchios.” We all know by now the Post is not even close to being fair and balanced. But, as my friend Mark Alexander often says, “Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then!”

As the lies fly, so does the damage being done to the good people of Georgia. And they are good people. I lived there for 25 years and traveled and spoke all over the state. But because leftists absolutely hate anyone who dares to oppose them, good people are going to suffer.

Major League Baseball is moving events out of Georgia, costing millions of dollars in tourist and event income. Delta Airlines feels obligated to attack the residents of its own hometown. And, of course, Coca-Cola, the totally WOKE soft drink company, had to inject its two cents worth. I don’t know about you, but I can’t be less white. However, I can certainly drink something besides Coke, thank you very much.

Where is this all going to end? We are getting to the point at which the Left is intent on silencing anyone or any opinion it disagrees with, First, Second, and Fourth Amendments be damned! In fact, leftists have nothing but disdain for our Constitution. Have conservatives lost their voice? I know many Republicans lost their nerve and backbone some time ago. If they can’t find it again, SOON, they will be but a distant memory.

When did we decide we had no choice but to give in to the bullies? Who are these “cancel culture” warriors who sit in their basements in their pajamas and decide who can speak and who can’t? Why do we care if they like us or not? My life is not going to be placed into the hands of some historically illiterate moron who has no idea of the impact this nation was able to make in the history of our world.

I know at times it seems like there’s nothing we can do. The deck seems to be stacked against us. But that’s not the attitude that changed America from a struggling colony facing the major world power of the day to win our freedom and our independence. Americans are not the sort of people who just whine and give up when things get hard. Like my high school football coach used to say, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!” Suck it up and start hitting back!
