Commenting on Rush Limbaugh’s passionate denunciation of the spirit of anti-American leftism that is destroying the country, Lloyd Marcus, who blogs at The Unhyphenated American, agrees that the time has come to say “No!” He concludes, with Limbaugh, “It is time that we take action to take back our country. It is time that we say no to anti-American traitors and anti-biblical cultural assassins.”

This is a sentiment that cannot honorably be refuted. The problem is trying to decide what saying “No!” actually means. Merely saying “No!” is obviously a futile gesture and will produce little to nothing in the way of results. The question is how to translate “No!” into action. Debate and discussion with any of the manifestations of the left is a non-starter since the left does not debate or discuss. It adheres to a rigid orthodoxy that will allow no reconsideration or reflection on the putative axioms it regards as sacred. It is, in essence, the contemporary version of Bolshevism. The left will lie, slander, cheat and commit violence to further its goals. Its mind is deadbolted shut.

How, then, to say “No!” such that it realistically leads to discernible and effective consequences? Rhetoric won’t do it. The expression of noble sentiment won’t do it. Hand-wringing won’t do it. Prayer may, or may not, be a powerful factor; Lincoln is reputed to have said: “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.” But one recalls the Frank Loesser song, “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.” Remaining content with radio talk, podcasts, interviews, essays and articles that alert the public to the impending disaster, though not to be scanted, is only a necessary first step. Delivering an angry vote may stave off the brunt of the calamity for an interval, but will not significantly alter the dynamics. The answer is that a meaningful response requires material and demonstrable presidential action, as Lincoln knew in a time of national disintegration. Nothing less will do. Whether we like it or not, restitution now rests with Donald Trump.

You’d better believe it is collapsing…you tear down your opponent’s flag and replace with your own to signify a victory in battle. Defeat of the enemy. War has been declared in America, on America. But so far only one side seems even aware. if this disgraceful act, on American soil no less, doesn’t enrage Americans from coast to coast then what exactly will it take? Pre-Obama such an act would have united the nation in fury. In Obama’s successfully fundamentally transformed America desecration of the flag of the United States is a badge of honour. One that will more likely than not result in a sizeable portion of the country cheering as though they were parents at their child’s elementary school trans gender beauty contest. That had replaced the Christmas Concert.

Anti-Donald Trump protesters took down a United States flag outside of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Aurora, Colorado on Friday and replaced it with a Mexican flag.

“The protesters also removed a ‘Blue Lives Matter’ flag, honoring law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words ‘Abolish ICE,’ then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag,” according to Fox News, which cited local media.

A failed state on our southern border would be catastrophic in so very many aspects for Canada. So to all those Canadians whose hatred for Donald Trump is refueled daily via the hate filled hissing emanating from the viper’s nest aka The View. Or the utterly dishonest and corrupt media on both sides of the border. Or the blinded by agenda, selfish and yes corrupt politicians on both sides of that border, listen up. Be careful what you wish for.
