HE FIGHTS…. by Evan Sayet; July 13, 2017

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: 

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or”proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.

I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ’60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.

It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one the violent take-over of the universities till today. The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war.

While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end.

Donald Trump is America ‘s first wartime president in the Culture War.  During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.

Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.

Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights..”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastard, I read your book!”

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri.

Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” … Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinable position. … They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. 

They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

The problem for CNN (et al) with the former is that, if they were to start  honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church.

Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left and the #Never Trumpers as well do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times.

This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care.

I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

    Good article to pass along. The guy did half miss a couple points, which support his general thesis.
    1) Grant was pushed to resign in 1854, largely due to his drinking. At that point, he was a Captain with 11 years of service. Granted, during peacetime, it was not uncommon to be a Company-grade officer for an extended period of time.
    2) Patton was a Colonel with 30+ years of service when WWII broke out. But for the war, Patton’s sole claim to fame would likely have been his designing the ‘Patton Saber’, M1913 Cavalry Saber.

    True on many counts. I’m certainly glad that Trump beat Hillary, but Trump isn’t all that. It’s sheer projection to translate a mid-eighties style democrat like Trump into a fighting hero for the right. He isn’t. I’ll take what I can get, and his willingness to fight back is good thing, and has benefits in exposing the left.

    The bit about forcing them to go high or low is spot on. They can’t “go high” and win, so they have to go low… but they lose that way too, if they’re forced to stay on that track.

      For many/most of us… one year ago today it was “The Lesser of Two Evils”. If anything, that has been proven to be even more of an easy decision to make.

    Excellent article. It presents a point of view I had not considered.

    BTW, have you noticed the string of folks leaving the Cinco Grande? About 5 in the last couple of months; Ms. Loveland, Pope Crabtree the Pious, Mr. Bill, Nate Johnson (announced today) and Ms. Sims (ditto). Then there is the controversy regarding the Raleigh Christmas Parade and the battle with AT&T over programing. This does not look like the “feel good, warm and fuzzy” WRAL of the past. Any word from your sources about what’s going on over there? Is it possible the switch to NBC aint working out? Will we see more folks abandon ship?

      Yes, there are a lot of longtime on-air staff opting to leave within a short time of each other. Could all be coincidental and for legitimate personal reasons. I believe I read that Crabtree is going into some form of Lay Ministry and L Loveland to be a full-time mom. Sims taking a job with a state agency I believe. No idea if the affiliate flip has anything to do with it. It was my understanding that WRAL News was unaffected by the change.
      .
      CBC/WRAL is now run day-day by Jim Goodmon Jr. Dad has formally retired to oversee his ideological jihad of The Triangle. Maybe JG Jr employs a different management “vibe” than JG Sr did before he became an ideologue ??

      I’m not sure enough of “us” realize that… yet. There is still a Kumbaya faction that thinks “being nice” will work.

      Of course I never thought we would win a year ago. It was a year and two days ago BTW. 🙂
