They’re Pushing Us Because They Assume We Won’t Push Back…
Amid the socio-political turbulence of recent years, there’s growing concern that America is entering a “Post-America” era. With progressive forces appearing to lead the charge, some experts argue that the pillars of the free Republic are under siege. This perception has emerged as forces on the left seem to gain momentum, prompting debate over the resilience of conservative values.
An op-ed from The American Thinker states, “Progressives are emboldened, believing that whatever they do is working, and their victory is in sight.” This perspective pinpoints a sense of optimism among progressive factions, suggesting a perceived lack of resistance from their conservative counterparts.
Several events over the past decade support this notion. Economic challenges facing the middle class, which have escalated since the Obama years, have intensified. According to the commentary, “Inflation is now baked in and has only slowed, not diminished, as Biden officials callously gloss over it.”
Furthermore, social unrest, exemplified by instances of “wilding” following the deaths of George Floyd and Freddie Gray, has increased. The piece posits that these episodes serve as proof-of-concept for extremist groups like Antifa, BLM, and Marxists. Baltimore’s 2016 looting, as the commentary cites, may have been a “test case” for more widespread unrest, pointing to comments made by Baltimore’s Mayor suggesting a hands-off approach to those causing destruction.
The piece further highlights disparities in political playbooks, juxtaposing challenges faced by President Trump against claims made by Democrats. Trump’s contentious tenure, marked by his targeting of “corrupt politicians, cronies, lazy federal workers, NATO malingerers, and the political State,” drew significant backlash from opposition forces.
Now, as Trump faces what the commentary terms a different kind of assassination, “not just character assassination, but his mind, body, and soul,” the stakes seem higher than ever. The goal, according to The American Thinker, is to issue a stark warning against challenging the established power elite.
However, despite these challenges, the article emphasizes the potential for pushback. Pointing to the geographic distribution of “red” and “blue” counties and the vast resources and infrastructure concentrated in conservative strongholds, it suggests that “Biden can’t count on the military and police to violate the civil rights of millions of Americans.” This silent majority, the piece contends, has the potential to resist progressive forces.
“America, God shed his grace on thee,” is the rallying cry invoked by The American Thinker, urging Americans to recognize the fragility of their Republic and the enduring significance of their Constitution. As the world watches, the stage appears set for a renewed struggle over America’s soul.
