Remember when the Left opposed war? That was also back in the days when the Left supported Free Speech and Choice (but only when it comes to abortion; otherwise, it’s not your body, apparently – and it is the government’s choice what you do with it).
Now we have the Egg On Chorus, led by the personally pusillanimous but rhetorically Napoleonic Lindsey Graham, a Republican, who urges that Russian President Vladimir Putin be indicted, tried and convicted for war crimes a la Nuremburg – the penalty for which is death – something that would never induce Putin to go for broke in Keeeeeeeeeeeev by sending missiles to DC.
“You label Putin’s Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism [and] you create international tribunals so we actually can try [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and his cronies in the international court like we did after World War II,” he declared the other day.
He also suggested that America send F-16 fighter jets to Keeeeeeeeeev – which, from the Russians’ point-of-view, would be regarded as exactly the same thing as it is from the U.S. point-of-view, when it is done by any other country egging on an enemy of this country and giving that country the means to attack this country.
But, never mind. Putin Bad! Zelensky good!
Keep in mind who essentially founded the Republican Party and was its first president. That would be Abraham Lincoln. He loved war, especially when waged to put an end to “democracy.”
Unless, of course, you are a typical Republican – who believes the South had no right to depart from the “union.” No right to form a government of its people, by its people and for its people.
Spare us, please, the cant about “slavery.” Lincoln and his Republicans enslaved us all. What do you own, exactly? Is it your home? The one you must pay the government forever in order to be allowed to continue living in it? Your car? Which you must also pay the government in order to be allowed to use? On roads you must also obtain the government’s permission to use? Can you open a business – or do business – without the permission of your massa?
Lincoln waged war upon democracy without mercy, against civilians explicitly, sending the mid-19th century equivalents of SS-Obergruppenfuhrers marching into the South to literally scorch the earth, so as to reach the recalcitrant Southerners all about “democracy.” The same kind of “democracy” that the same blue-suited Obergruppenfuhrers – Sherman and Sheridan and Custer – brought to the Indians of the American plains, after they were done with the South. The same “democracy” that Biden – and Graham – seek to further in eastern Europe.
For there is nowhere on this Earth that is to be left free to decide its own course. The only course is that of modern American “democracy,” which is a philosophy both the Left and the Republican “right” agree upon. It is a philosophy that says Our Way is the only way and if you do not like it, tough. And if you resist, we will destroy you.
Even if it means destroying the world, for their world is one of unassailable power that, if lost, costs them everything. And that is why they are willing to make sure no cost is spared to preserve it – and that all of us pay it.
The take-home point here is that Republicans such as Lindsey Graham are not Republicans in Name Only (RINOs). They are the most authentic and faithful Republicans. The truest expositors of the philosophy imposed at bayonet-point upon the United States (North as well as South) that “democracy shall not perish from this Earth.”
And then everywhere else, from here to Keeeeeeeev and beyond.
Even if it is necessary to burn the Earth to a cinder toward that end.
