Here we are halfway through 2021 and the world has not yet come to an end. Many people have prognosticated doom and gloom over the past couple of years and although there have been hard times, the world is still spinning on its axis.
Some people suspect the year 2020 was either a government conspiracy or an insane mind game played on us all by the Illuminate. But just to be on the safe side, I was vaccinated, on the off-chance the Chinese pinpointed my family DNA for destruction. After all, Suttons are very competitive, and in a world of underachievers and mommy’s basement dwellers, a little motivation may be all we need to beat back socialism and win the gold!
This past week we celebrated Independence Day and thankfully there were no “alien” attacks from space. But space is the least likely threat to America’s existence. The most dangerous attack being perpetrated on “we the people” is intended to subvert our entire way of life. Sadly, these are attacks from within and much harder to stop. You can’t just nuke’em. After all, they are fellow citizens. Although, President Biden recently insinuated that weapons of mass destruction would be a fair response to opposing viewpoints.
It seems that every single day another inch of freedom is taken from us. Little things, sometimes so small that most people seem not to notice. Especially if you still haven’t come out of your house since the “stay home, stay safe” mandate. The ability to disagree without fear of retribution on your personal life and business. The freedom to point out the flaws in their arguments when the gurus of the now popular “Social Justice” religion or “End of the World because it’s Hot this Summer” religion accuse America of being the catalyst for everything bad on the planet. The freedom to support the police because you want them to be available when bad things happen. The freedom to watch the news of your choice, support the politician of your choice, read online articles of your choice, and share your views without being monitored, coerced, threatened, banned, called a terrorist, and/or cancelled.
When I was in grade school, we learned about the evils of communism in countries like China and Russia. The ripping away of rights, burning down of churches, banning books and information, arrest, imprisonment, and murder of their own people for any and all disobedience to the regime. Now they teach children that the worst problems in the world were all birthed in America. We apparently invented slavery, racism, hatred, and global warming. Who knew? In the thousands of years before America was around, the world was at peace.
You can see what’s happening more clearly if you stop assuming either political party is always right or that they have your best interest at heart. Open your eyes.
Is it okay to ban books that disagree with whoever is in charge of the nuthouse rhetoric at the moment? It’s happening. Is it okay to destroy a woman’s lifelong business to get back at her for standing up at a school board meeting and disagreeing with the agenda to indoctrinate children instead of educate them? It’s happening. Is it okay to bash, bully, and ultimately silence people on social media for having an opinion that is not your own? It’s happening. Is it okay for a man to lose his job because someone accused him of being a racist, without proof to back it up? It’s happening. Is it okay for violent men to be placed in women’s prison’s, boys competing against girls in school sports, and children being experimented on because “feelings” override facts and science? It’s happening. Does any of this sound strikingly similar to a history lesson on Nazi Germany’s reign of terror?
Hey, I’m no expert on how communism seeps into society. I just know what history used to say before they rewrote it. It starts with the splintering of a nation; wedges of hate and accusation dividing people by religion, skin color, rich and poor, or anything else, until there is no nation left to fight for. When you’re so focused on SELF, you don’t care what happens to your neighbors and fellow citizens when their rights are taken away.
When did politics become so overwhelming, all-consuming, ridiculously important, and divisive that we can’t simply live our lives the way we have always done, worshipping our God, working our jobs, caring for our children, and loving our neighbors without some overpaid, self-absorbed, narcissists shouting across a cable news desk that we’re not doing it right? Newscasters, politicians, and social media billionaires are not experts on how we the people should live our lives, what we should believe, or what we should think.
This is America. We are a country of diverse peoples, beliefs, and opinions, but we are ONE NATION. Let’s stop listening to the manipulating megalomaniacs on both sides and start acting like fellow Americans again!
Thanks for stopping by!
