If the Kyle Rittenhouse trial isn’t waking people up to the idea that Democrats are bad at deciding who’s acting illegally and who is, then you haven’t been paying attention.
The January 6 commission hasn’t been fully honest about rioters’ actions at the Capitol on January 6. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is still trying to subpoena politicians’ cell phone records. The FBI was honest in their assessment, at least so far, when they say that there was little to no evidence of a pre-planned insurrection. The FBI likely knows that they’re not going to be found to have acted following their investigatory standards as the Gretchen Whitmer plot has shown that the FBI informants were more involved in the plot than initially expected.
Democrats know that when someone disagrees with their plans, then they can call them “Qanon,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “domestic terrorists,” and social media as well as the leftists mainstream media will follow along. Setting a harmful precedent for a country with little to no unity is risky.
There’s something to be said about the phrase Thomas Jefferson put in the original draft of the Declaration of Independence. “All experience hath shown, that mankind is more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to the right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”
Jefferson was speaking from the heart. He was outlining a social structure that might not hurt you initially, but by the time you stand up to it, it may be too late. It will be harder to stand up to it initially, and most find comfort in incivility while it’s sufferable. When enough is enough, the fight gets more challenging.
We’ve all gotten used to getting banned on social media, and posts were taken down. Even the New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s laptop was taken down just before the election. Was it true? Yes. Was it damaging? Yes. Was it something the American people deserved to know? Yes. It was taken down anyway.
Social media companies have gotten used to skating under the radar for free speech violations on their sites.
Republicans must stand up to Democrats who portray Republicans as domestic terrorists. It’s not a fair assessment of the political structure we have, and it’s simply untrue.
