Life in America

Conservatives to the back of the bus in 2018



The Founding Fathers drafted a Constitution that protects the rights of the individual from an oppressive government. The Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal; they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title 42, Chapter 21, of the U.S. Code prohibits discrimination in the form of race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. It is against the law in America to discriminate against your fellow American for any of these reasons.

Yet in 2018, the national news media and the Democratic Party have determined it is permissible to discriminate against any individual whose political views differ from theirs. It has become fashionable to attack conservative Americans simply because their political views differ from those of the left. This is exactly the same type of bigoted behavior the Ku Klux Klan engaged in during the early part of the 20th century. This is the same type of behavior engaged in by Nazi Germany against the Jews—one group forcing its beliefs upon another, by physical force if necessary.

So what is the objective of these intolerant people who persecute and commit violence upon others because of their political views? They have a lynch mob mentality; they want total control. Their actions demonstrate their objective, which is to eliminate freedom of speech and freedom of thought. They are intolerant of any view other than their own. This is the Ku Klux Klan all over again; they are persecuting anyone with a conservative view of government.

They yell and scream over anyone who speaks an opposing political view, "Conservatives sit in the back of the bus." They are incapable of a rational discussion regarding their political differences. Just like the KKK, they physically attack those whose views and political policy ideas are different from theirs. Why are these people afraid of an honest, respectful discussion of their differences? Our country's answer to disagreements over free speech has always been more free speech. Why must they resort to physical violence like the Ku Klux Klan? Is antifa the new America? Is that what we want?

This lynch mob mentality is endorsed by the national media against anyone with a conservative point of view. They attack anyone who disagrees with them publicly by beating them down because they dare to speak out against the propaganda generated by the socialist, fascist, communist left and condoned by a complicit media. This same behavior occurs in our colleges. Why is this tolerated?

They say "sexual harassment" is use of a position of power to gain sexual favors, yet government officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice use the power of their positions to persecute others with opposing political views. This is a crime, yet law enforcement officials at the highest levels allow this to occur. This is the worst kind of abuse of American citizens by their government. The reason America was founded was to protect "we the people" from a tyrannical government. The job of the "free press" is to shed light on the issues by providing a fair and honest assessment of the facts. May I remind you there is a reason we have a Second Amendment!

Is this what happens to a country when "illegal" no longer means "illegal"? Δ
