It’s a Scary Time for Conservatives

I’m afraid for the future of America.

We had President Trump for four years.

I already feel like we’ve had President Biden for eight.

There were many reasons for not liking Trump or the way he did things.

But at least he was an optimist. At least he saw the sun coming up every morning.

Biden sees every new dawn as the beginning of another dark and troubled day that only he and government intervention of the worst Democrat kind can make better.

Taking us back to the Jimmy Carter days of national malaise and pessimism, he keeps warning us about 100,000 more COVID-19 deaths in the next 30 days, years of mask mandates and the existential threat to the planet from climate change.

The only people happy with Biden’s daily message of gloom and doom are the lefty Democrats in Congress who control him and his soulmates in the friendly liberal media.

MSNBC, CNN, New York Times columnists, Rachel Maddow, the Joe McCarthy of our age, and their “progressive” pals are thrilled with Biden.

That’s because he’s spent the first days of his reign signing 40 executive orders designed to destroy or hobble the oil and gas industry, dismantle Trump’s tough immigration policies and make racial and sexual equity (not equality) the main mission of the newly “woked up” federal government.

For the last four years Maddow and lefty Democrats like her in the media have accused Trump of being a dictator at least ten times a day.

But they apparently haven’t noticed yet that Joe Biden has been signing executive decrees like Joe Stalin on speed and plans to keep 5,000 armed National Guard troops on the streets of Washington until March.

Can you imagine how loudly Maddow, Chuck Todd and the hypocritical civil libertarians at the New York Times editorial page would have howled if Trump had brought 15,000 armed troops into D.C. for any reason — including a parade?

He sent a few busloads of soldiers to protect a federal courthouse in Seattle from being torched by rioters last year and he was called Hitler Junior.

Maddow and her fellow travelers in and out of government see right wing domestic terrorists hiding under every other deplorable bed between Manhattan and Hollywood.

Some of them are openly calling conservative Republicans, Trump supporters, Christians and even libertarians “domestic terrorists” and suggesting that they need to be deprogrammed in reeducation camps or denied jobs or government contracts based on their political beliefs.

On Wednesday the country got an alert from Biden’s Department of Homeland Security that said there was a rising threat of domestic terrorism across the country from extremists “emboldened” by the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

The DHS didn’t name names, but everyone knows its terrorism alert was referring to conservatives and Trump supporters.

But come on, man!

Everyone on the right except some crazies with horns on their helmets has decried what happened at the Capitol.

Republicans and conservatives across the country are not fomenting violence or planning an insurrection, and never were, despite what Professor Maddow thinks.

But that doesn’t matter.

If you voted for Trump, you’re now looked at and treated like a potential domestic terrorist by the government, the liberal media and institutions like Facebook and Harvard.

If you say the wrong political thing in public or on Facebook, or if your neighbor or student rats you out, you might end up having your diploma rescinded, being censored or de-platformed by Twitter, losing your job or not being hired in the first place.

While the dishonest media treat Biden like a fragile flower and cheer-lead for his resurrection of some of President Obama’s worst policies, it’s become a very scary time to be a conservative, a Trump supporter, a Christian or plain old Republican in Joe Biden’s un-unified America.

America’s federal government has essentially become a one-party state and it, the media and Big Business are all on the same dangerous progressive page.

I don’t know about you, but as I watch a “moderate” president taking us farther down the road to socialism — and serfdom — I’m afraid for the future of America.
