On tonight’s episode of Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News Channel, he dedicated the beginning of his program to a segment titled: The Violent Left Turn. In it, Carlson made some excellent points that needed to be said. He, essentially, pointed out that the Left is not only about power and control, but their attacks on Donald Trump are representative of the Left’s hostility to elections if not our way of life.
In order for totalitarians to achieve or regain power, an effort has to be made to nullify or take out the competition which is tantamount to making elections irrelevant. In any system of government where leaders are chosen, the loser must concede peacefully and allow the winners to govern. If not, then a society based on a government that elects its leaders is meaningless. Up until four years ago, the Left did peacefully relinquish power if they lost an election. Now they no longer do. If Donald Trump is not allowed to govern and implement his program, it negates last year’s election and the consent of the governed.
There has always been a segment of the Left that has openly called for violence in order to achieve their aims. Some examples are Earth First, Animal Liberation Front, Earth Liberation Front, and, more recently, Black Lives Matter. Now, in light of Donald Trump winning the Presidency, the acceptance of violence against political opponents has gained approval among Leftists and more groups as well as individuals are resorting to it.
The thing to keep in mind is that Leftists have not been radicalized, they are radicals and Leftists are not misguided but purely evil. The the Left is conducting is a build up to widen the scope of violence they will conduct. Hopefully, federal, state and local authorities will be able to stop Leftist violence before it gets out of control. Like it or not, the United States is embroiled in a second civil war and it is time for people to face that fact.
To the Left, elections are only legitimate if a candidate they support wins. For example, after the election of Donald Trump, Leftist groups, politicians and and media pundits declared voters had made a mistake. The Left then established a resistance movement specifically saying they were acting to correct the mistake people had made November 8, 2016. If Leftists claim the right to overturn an election when voters choose the wrong candidate, then that negates the legitimacy of elections and is tantamount to a refusal to concede power.
Below is an interview Tucker Carlson conducted with Yvette Falacra. She is the head of the California-based group By Any Means Necessary. Felarca and her organization openly advocate violence against people who oppose their political positions. In this interview, Felarca unabashedly defends attacking a Trump supporter at a rally in Berkeley, California and violence against political rivals. We only have one civilization and the more people remain complacent, the faster we lose our way of life.
