BLACK REPUBLICAN BLOG -
The Republican Party is the party of civil rights and the four F’s: faith, family, freedom and fairness.
The Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and socialism (Quote By Author Michael Scheuer).
I thought love trumps hate. That’s what I’ve been led to
believe by an effusion of t-shirts, bumper stickers, and social media postings
from the self-styled anti-Trump Resistance™. As my friend Roger Kimball likes to
say, there really is nothing like the intoxication of moral superiority.
The syrupy slogans promulgated by the ruling class,
ruling class wannabes, and fellow travelers on the Left aren’t fooling anyone,
not even, I would guess, the people who say, wear, and post them. Truth is,
they really don’t like the rest of us. No problem, we have our own lives and
families. But it’s only not a problem until such disdain is combined with a
sense of political entitlement and the coercive power of government.
Which brings us to the political and cultural union of
the Democratic Party and the permanent political class called the deep state,
that forms the unelected, unaccountable fourth branch of government that wields
so much power up to and including the police power of the FBI.
In private texts recently made public, FBI “super-agent”
Peter Strozk and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, were quite candid. Their
open disdain for a wide variety for groups including Italians, Russians,
Romanians, gypsies, Virginians, Texans, and pro-lifers should surprise no one.
The leaders of their party have been saying the same thing in public for years.
Here is one telling exchange between the star-crossed
“Guccifer. Sleazy Romanian…,” Strzok wrote.
“They ALL are,” Page responded.
“Funny to watch and think of [redacted]. No wonder he’s a
brusque as he is…and those Romanians aren’t even the gypsies…” Strzok shot
“Seriously, I kind of hate them. (I’m sure [redacted]
fine). But they have the crookedness of the Russians with the
entitledness of the Italians. Yuck,” Page answered.
In a separate exchange, Page goes after Russians—all of
“…hate them. l think they’re probably the worst. Very little I
find redeeming about this. Even in history. Couple of good writers and
artists I guess.”
“Probably the worst?”
Even worse than those entitled
Italians and sleazy Romanians? I guess that means no Tchaikovsky or
Rimsky-Korsakov on her playlist.
But it’s not just foreigners. It turns out, they’re not
terribly fond of Americans either. Virginians and Texans come in for particular
scorn because, well, you know, it’s always open season on rural America and the
South. Virginia and Texas must seem like a twofer.
When Jill McCabe (D-Va.), wife of former Deputy Director
of the FBI Andrew McCabe, lost a race for the Virginia state senate after
taking nearly $700,000 from the Clintons and their allies, Strzok let loose on
his neighbors and countrymen.
“Disappointing, but look at the district map,” he
texted.“Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys
(sic). Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never
I’d guess that the “ignorant” voters of Loudon County
probably realize that the slur he was reaching for is spelled “hillbillies” and
not “hillbillys.” Strzok can remember it in the future because it’s the same
construction used in other words, like “adulteries” and “felonies.”
He had a few words for the Lone Star State too. “And
while i (sic) hate Trump, part of me thought (redacted) would not/may not get
into (redacted) because they’re white and not from buttf*ck Texas…”
How about the hundreds of thousands of people from all
parts of the country and all walks of life attending the annual March for Life?
Page isn’t a fan of them either: “I truly hate these people. No support for the
woman who actually has to spend the rest of her life rearing this child, but we
are about ‘life.’ Assholes.”
In Page’s world, “life” comes with scare quotes and
consists of adultery with a co-worker, leaking classified information to the
press, using federal police power to rig presidential elections, and spewing
venom at virtually everyone outside of her social and professional circle. What
Maybe Page and Strzok are outliers. Maybe they were just venting
private frustrations with a lover. Maybe. But the public statements of the
leaders of their own party, the people they admire, who Page called the “very
impressive” (the Obamas) and the woman who deserves to win “100,000,000-0”
(Clinton) are even worse.
The Strzoks and Pages, the Clintons and Obamas have all
made it abundantly clear that they don’t like the America they see around them.
They don’t like where it came from or the people who live here.
class makes no secret of it: they hate you.
In 2008, Barack Obama derided people from
“You go into some of these small towns in
Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been
gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the
Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive
administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and
they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns
or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant
sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief, John Podesta was part
of a thread of anti-Catholic emails with activist Sanford Newman:
to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a
middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect
for gender equality in the Catholic church.”
And, of course, there was Hillary’s open contempt for the
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put
half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?”
Clinton said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you
name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them
If that’s not enough, compare the slogans of the Left to
their candid public and private statements.
Love trumps hate.
Hope and change.
“Hate is not a family value.”
The sense of entitlement and open disdain of this
elites is dangerous.
Early in the Obama Administration, it led to
weaponizing the IRS against political rivals.
That manifest wrong was never
punished and it emboldened ruling class Democrats in the FBI to lie to the FISA
court so they could spy on the Trump campaign for the benefit of Hillary
The unfolding political corruption is just the public
manifestation of a deeper social and political crisis that strikes at the heart
of our ability to maintain a system of constitutional self-government.
