In his book, Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky imparted a key piece of advice to those who want to disrupt or even destroy a society, or a country. Alinsky said, “accuse the other side of that which you are guilty”. Karl Marx put it this way, “accuse your enemy of what you are doing, as you are doing it to create confusion”. The left in our country has taken this advice to heart, and they are using the confusion they are creating to destroy this once great nation.
The people on the left, who for 2 years have been implementing mass lockdowns of citizens, who have been mandating masks, who are taking away individual sovereignty by dictating what medicine every citizen must take, who have been colluding with big tech to censor the political speech of the citizens, who are raising taxes through the roof, and implementing a massive regulatory state, are accusing the people on the right who oppose all of that of being authoritarians and totalitarians.
The people on the left, who want an anti-constitutional Federal take-over of our election system which would do away with voter ID and implement universal mail-in ballots which would open the door to massive voter fraud, are accusing the people on the right who oppose that lunacy of threatening our democracy.
The people on the left who have, and still are questioning the validity of the 2000 election, the 2004 election, the 2016 election, and have recently preemptively questioned the results of the 2022 and 2024 elections in anticipation of landslide victories for Republicans, accuse anyone on the right who questioned the validity of the 2020 election as threatening our democracy,
Hillary Clinton, who during the 2016 Presidential campaign actually colluded with the Russians, and foreign spies to create the false “Russian Dossier” which she bought and paid for to discredit and smear Donald Trump in order to sway the 2016 election in her direction, accused Donald Trump, based solely on the false dossier she paid for, of colluding with the Russians to influence the 2016 election.
Hillary Clinton who promoted the “Russian Reset” as Secretary of State in 2009, and Barack Obama who allowed Russia to annex Crimea under his watch, and Joe Biden who just green lighted Russia to invade Ukraine, all accused Donald Trump of being an “agent of the Russians” and a “pawn of Putin”.
The Democratic party which was the party of slavery, the party of Jim Crow and segregation, the party of the KKK, the party of Japanese Internment camps, the party that blocked and filibustered at least five separate Civil Rights bills, the party of LBJ’s “Great Society” which was designed to make black people and minorities dependent on the government so they would continue to vote Democrat, the party of race preferences in hiring and college admissions, the party promoting Critical Race Theory which teaches people to judge each other based on skin color, and that certain races are superior to others, all of which the Republicans fought against, accuse the Republican party of being racist. If you removed the Democrat party from the United States history, the horrid legacy of racism in this country would all but disappear.
The people on the left who supported over a hundred Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020 which ravaged over 50 of our major cities, fire-bombed police stations and court houses, burned federal buildings to the ground, killed over 30 people, sent thousands of police officers to the hospital, caused billions of dollars of damage, accuse the right of being insurrectionists and domestic terrorists because of one riot that was universally denounced by people on the right.
The Democrats who have supported the defund the police movement, and liberal DAs who let violent criminals out on low or no bail, both of which have led to sharp increases in violent crimes and murders in our major cities, which disproportionally victimize blacks and minorities, accuse the right of pushing policies which threaten the lives of blacks and minorities.
Joe Biden who has opened our southern border and has allowed over 2 million foreign nationals from 84 different countries throughout the world to enter our country illegally, accuses anyone who is against going to war with Russia over Ukraine as being against border integrity and national sovereignty.
Joe Biden who told the Ukraine President that if he didn’t fire the prosecutor who was investigating the corruption of Hunter Biden’s shady Ukrainian energy company Burisma, he was going to withhold a billion dollars of US aid to Ukraine, and within 24 hours, the prosecutor was fired, accused Donald Trump of engaging in “quid pro quo” when he simply asked the Ukrainian President to investigate Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings with Burisma.
Left wing news outlets, like CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times, who act as propaganda arms of the left and the Democrats party, accuse news organizations on the right, such as Fox News, of propagating fake news.
The people on the left who referred to women as “menstruators” or “birthing people”, who are promoting radical gender theory which destroys the concept of womanhood, and allows men dressed as women to dominate women’s college sports, be named Woman of the Year, become the woman’s all-time Jeopardy champion, take the places of actual women in important jobs and distinguished accomplishments, accuse people on the right of being anti-woman and engaging in a “war on women”.
Democrats who promote a government takeover of our healthcare system which will create shortages and rationing of medicine and medical services which would cause millions of people not to get the healthcare they need, and cause many unnecessary deaths, accuse the Republicans who are against this disastrous policy of not caring whether their fellow citizens get the proper healthcare they need.
If a liberal ever accuses you of anything, it is a tacit admission that they are engaged in the exact wrong-doing they are accusing you of. It is the Democrats who are authoritarians, anti-democracy, racists, insurrectionists, anti-American, anti-woman, corrupt, and are a danger to not only our country, but our very lives. Their end game is to destroy our country, and our culture, and rebuild it in their image where they are the ones on top, dictating their vision on the rest of us. We cannot fall for this transparent game that they continually try to play with us, don’t even engage with them, because most of what comes out of their mouth are lies with evil and disastrous intents.
