Andrew Cuomo, the governor of one of the largest and most important states in
the USA, says that conservatives
are not welcome there, something serious is going on; and when his statement is
placed in a larger context of statements by other Obama Democrats, it becomes
clear that they are attempting to dehumanize conservatives.
speech this week, New York’s Democrat Senator Schumer, invoking all the usual
liberal cliches about conservatives, said the Tea Party is successor to
"the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long."
In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos,
neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful of what leftist
academics might call The Other.
Party adherents see an America that's not reflective of themselves, and
the America they have known, and they just don't like
it." They are bothered by changes in the "cultural, technological,
and demographic makeup" of the nation. It angers them that "white
Anglo-Saxon men are exclusively not running the country anymore", Schumer
The last time a major western country tried to dehumanize a large
group of people, it was done by Nazis (National Socialist Party) in the early 1930’s. Instead of deploring the recent scandal when
it was revealed that the IRS was being used to harass and destroy conservative groups,
Schumer wants the IRS to increase its harassment of Tea Party groups.
The following article reviews many of the efforts being made to dehumanize
and destroy conservatives, but its theme places these actions in the realm of “politics”. This is more than just politics, and
conservatives have to fight back a lot harder than they have so far.
Are Playing the Knockout Game
It's no wonder there's been so little outrage from the
Left over the phenomenon known as the Knockout Game.
The Left loves the game and is increasingly expert in
knocking out conservative opposition with one swift and lethal blow to the head
of any and all who oppose progressivism.
We on the right have seen a rapid succession of
punches aimed at taking down everyone and everything conservative. Whether it
is potential presidential candidates or conservative organizations like the Tea
Party, the aim is the same. Go in from behind in packs and sucker punch the
unwitting victims, using governmental entities such as the IRS, the DOJ, or
state AGs to deliver the fatal strikes.
It's clear the end game has a dual purpose: Get
potential presidential competitors out of the game and provide distractions
from the deep and dangerous scandals afflicting the Obama administration. The
attacks against "enemies" like the Tea Party also provide additional
and convenient diversions that channel attention away from the disaster that is
Let's take a look at just five examples of people and
organizations that are on the knockout list:
Knockout punch #1: In Virginia, former governor Robert McDonnell, was indicted on federal corruption charges scarcely ten days after leaving office. The governor,
who has just been released on his own recognizance, may have been blindly obtuse when he accepted gifts.
But he firmly maintains he did nothing criminal. Be that as it may, fighting
the charges will knock him out of the 2016 presidential race. He was seen as a
potential GOP candidate.
Knockout punch #2 is aimed at the skull of New Jersey's Chris Christie, also seen as a frontrunner
candidate for the presidency. The U.S. Attorney General has now inserted
himself into the Bridgegate scandal, in which Christie has been accused of deliberately
tying up traffic in order to get back at Democrat mayor Mark Sokolich, who did
not endorse him for the governorship. Fighting the charges against him will
take up most of Christie's time -- time he could have spent campaigning for the
presidency. The knockout appears to have achieved a twofer, as Christie himself
dismissed Bill Stepien, who had been seen as a prospective manager for the
governor's 2016 possible presidential bid.
Knockout punch #3 is aimed at Mike Huckabee, who is
falsely being accused of misogyny because he said, "For Democrats to
reduce women to beggars for cheap government-funded birth control is demeaning
to the women that I know who are far more complicated than their libido and the
management of their reproductive system."
Jay Carney quickly deemed Huckabee's comments as
"offensive." Look for Huckabee to be a knockout target, as he has
also been cited as a potential candidate for the presidency. He will
continually and incessantly berated by the Left as being
"anti-woman." The hope is that no woman in America will even think of supporting him. If that were to be
the case, he would be toast.
But you don't have to be a potential candidate for the
presidency to be targeted. Democrat knockout gangs are roaming around looking
for other potential victims.
One such potential victim is Dinesh D'Souza, target of Knockout punch #4. D'Souza has been
charged with making illegal contributions via others and of making false statements. The leaders
of the D'Souza knockout gang are the FBI and the U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, Preet Bharara, an Obama appointee who primly stated
of D'Souza's supposed criminality, "As we have long said, this Office and
the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral
Of course the fact D'Souza directed the very
successful 2012 film, 2016: Obama's America, a work extremely critical of Obama, would have
nothing to do with his indictment. Nor would punching him in the face have
anything to do with interest in deterring the scheduled July 4th release of his
next film. And the fact the FBI said it found no criminality in the IRS
targeting of conservative organizations means its investigations into D'Souza's
affairs are completely unbiased.
Knockout Punch # 5 is directed against the
conservative Hollywood organization known as "Friends of Abe." The
group is being harassed by the IRS after they applied for tax exempt status.
The Heritage Foundation writes, "According to the Times, federal tax authorities have requested detailed
information from the group about its meetings with several conservative
politicians, including Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) and former presidential
candidate Herman Cain. Sources say the application has been under review for
two years and that the IRS requested access to Friends of Abe's private
website, which would have revealed member names."
This is the same trustworthy IRS that was given a
clean bill of health by the FBI after revelations it has been harassing
conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.
There's no doubt any knowledgeable conservatives could
add to the "Knockout Punch" list. The number of the Left's knockout
targets is simply too long to review in a short essay. Certainly the targets
are diverse, as they include everybody and everything opposed to the Left's
agenda. Targets include, but are not limited to the Catholic Church,
"terrorist" evangelicals, parents who home school, owners of guns,
dissenters in academia and on and on.
The list of the Democrats' potential victims is longer
than the number of Don Juan's conquests, which in Spain alone numbered 1,003. That number probably pales in
significance to the number of potential knockout victims on whose backs
Democrats have a big bull's eye painted.
But in the meantime, conservatives of all stripes
wonder where the indictments on the IRS targeting of conservatives are. They
wonder why there have been no charges filed over the "Fast and
Furious" scandal and the Benghazi debacle. They wonder why there have been no
consequences for the outrageous actions and inactions of Harry Reid, Eric
Holder or Kathleen Sebelius; why there has been no investigation of the
Solyndra debacle and why there never seem to be any lasting and effectual
investigations into our president's imperial ambitions and behavior.
But wondering aside, those on the right can see
there's a clearly recognizable motive driving the Democrats' vicious targeting
of conservative candidates for the presidency and conservative organizations in
It's called "vengeance."
Democrats are afflicted with it and are hell bent on
Republicans should recall the words of Valerie Jarrett, who is often considered the brains behind the Obama
"After we win this election, it's our turn.
Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready
because we don't forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who
opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.
Congress won't be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after
this is over and we have two judges ready to go."
Our president indicated his contempt for congress and
a desire to bypass and get back at his opposition when he said, "I've got a pen and I've got a phone -- and I
can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and
administrative actions that move the ball forward." His statement is right
in line with his "I won; you lost" mentality. Losers get ignored or
Andrew Cuomo, for all his attempts to
"contextualize" his recent comments about "extremist"
conservatives, actually declared New York had no room for any who opposing his radical agenda.
He said of those who were against his proposed gun control legislation:
"Their problem is not me and Democrats. Their problem is themselves. Who
are they? Are they these extreme conservatives, who are right to life, pro
assault weapon, anti-gay. Is that who they are? Because if that is who they
are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state
of New York. Because that is not who New Yorkers are."
Valerie Jarrett, President Obama, and Governor Cuomo:
We get the message.
We understand the knockout game. We may even go down
after a sucker punch to the head.
But we conservatives have a way of picking ourselves
back up and continuing the fight. We will remain bloodied but not bowed. We
will rise and fight again, not out of vengeance, but out of a deep love for our
wonderful nation and for the principles on which she was founded.
We will fight for love of God, our fellow citizens and
