“They hate you. Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do.”
That’s how Kurt Schlichter’s powerful essay on TownHall.com begins, and it really resonates. It continues, saying, “You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn.”
Yes, this is a strident, but it’s absolutely true. If you don’t know this, you either are in denial or you aren’t paying attention.
U.C Berkeley taught us this. The criminal activity at President Trump’s inauguration taught us this. The so-called Women’s March, where they dressed up as genitalia taught us this. When I went to the inauguration, I saw there was the breakdown of a civil society. People were throwing eggs, hitting others. A liberal set a Trump supporter’s hair on fire. Don’t you dare call them protestors; they are criminals… and they hate you. They hate me.
That’s why you need to read the ending of Schlichter’s essay:
There’s no truce to be had, no possibility of a tie. And the frightening thing is that the Left is so foolish, so stuck in its bubble that it has no understanding that it can only push so far before the people with all the guns and all the training push back. That’s the problem with kids who were raised on participation trophies and who never got into a fistfight – they don’t consider the possibility that they will lose, and lose hard.We must ensure they do. Understand your enemy. Understand that the Left will exploit your principles and morals to make you disarm yourself – figuratively and literally. Don’t play their game; don’t fall for their manufactured outrages. Never concede their lies, never take their side against the people defending your liberty. Most of all, accept the truth that if we let them win we will spend the rest of our lives on our backs with a giant Birkenstock pressed into our collective face.
They hate us. And however they come at us, we need to be prepared to fight.
