Months ago I watched an internal battle within the Republican community play out between pundits considered #NeverTrumpers and/or RINOs (Republican In Name Only), and Trump supporters and conservatives sick and tired of constantly seeing Republicans declare themselves "above the fray," pitching "civility" in the face of outright tyranny by radical liberals, and willing to lose any and all culture war battles in the name of "being better than they are."
This isn’t to say that these conservatives do not care about any policies or that other conservatives don’t care about bias in the media or academia. The division comes because one segment of conservatives sees these cultural and institutional fights as ancillary to the more important ideological war over the underlying policies. But to the other segment of conservatives such cultural battles aren’t ancillary to the fight but the central fight. One side believes that highlighting and pushing back against these cultural and institutional biases is worthwhile, but not at the cost of higher principles. But the other side believes that this battle is primary and must be fought by any means necessary.
Is it worth constantly taking the "high road" if we lose each and every battle and in the process turn America over to radical liberalism where free speech is a thing of the past, where abortion is completely unlimited with no restrictions, where the second amendment is simply a memory, etc....etc....?
I bring up this ongoing discussion between "conservative" pundits for two reasons.
One: Because it is still ongoing months later, and;
Two: Because the recent events of Republican lawmakers storming the "secret impeachment" secure chamber being used by Democrat politicians in order to covertly carry on an impeachment inquiry behind closed doors, hiding what they are doing from the American people, doing so in what is called the "peoples' house," then leaking only portions to the liberal media, while hiding everything else, has some conservatives supporters saying "It is about time."
Over at the Daily Mail, in a story about the GOP congressmen storming the secret hearings, some of the commentary shows that many Republicans, conservatives, and/or Trump supporters are declaring "About time some republicans show their backbones and give the liberals a piece of their own medicine. #resistimpeachment."
Other comments to that story includes: "Good for the Republicans... This is a democracy and it should not be behind closed doors," and "LOL! It looks as though the GOP has its own "squad."
Congressman Matt Gaetz, one of the GOP leaders that led the charge into the "kangaroo court" chamber being led by "Shifty Adam Schiff," explained the purpose of the protest to Tucker Carlson during an interview, stating "We gotta stop thinking that we can use the Marquis of Queensbury rules of engagement when we’re fighting against an angry pack of rabid hyenas. And that’s what we’re facing and I think the president is right, we gotta be tougher......."
He has an excellent point. You do not bring a knife to a gun fight and expect to win. You won't. They will.
As Hugh Hewitt, conservative but not a Trump sycophant, points out, if Republican leaders do not stand by President Trump in the Democrats latest "impeachment" witch hunt, they will risk losing their base forever.
That sentiment is confirmed in a recent survey that found that "7 in 10 say US ‘on the edge of civil war’," in which one graph clearly shows Republicans that they must continue to fight back, even if it means using Democrats' own tactics against them.
Voters want our political leaders to fight, not roll over and play dead. Democrats are doing it and they do not care how they win, just that they do.
TRUMP FIGHTS BUT WHERE ARE HIS SUPPORTERS?
When President Trump won the election, many who voted for him, whether they did so because he was their chosen candidate, or whether they did so because they couldn't fathom having Hillary Clinton as President, fought and fought hard for the win.
They fought against biased and skewed polling. The fought against the liberal media that continued to lie, misrepresent, and selectively edit Trump statements in order to bash him. They fought against the #NeverTrumpers up on their holier-than-thou high horse declaring "better to lose the election" than to elect that "heathen!!"
Then many of them kicked back, and expected the President to carry on the fight alone,. They criticized what hasn't been done, while never mentioning what has been done. They ignored how hard the Trump administration was fighting against activist judges, appealing liberal rulings, fighting to get issues heard by the Supreme Court, which then sided with the Trump administration, on more than one issue.
Biden pitched his new Latino outreach, "Todos Con Biden," on the campaign trail, but ooooops, his campaign forgot to register the www.todosconbiden.com domain, nor the @TodosConBiden Twitter handle, to which the Trump campaign immediate took both.
Now, the Trump campaign is using www.todosconbiden.com to mock the former vice president, with a landing page that says in both English and Spanish, "Oops, Joe forgot about Latinos." The page also links out to the president's own Latino outreach coalition "Latinos for Trump." And the @TodosConBiden Twitter account, in the possession of the Trump campaign, has already begun posting unflattering counter messaging targeting Biden.
So, the President continues to fight, but what about his supporters? Many have no idea what to do other than offer moral and emotion support online, but there are things that conservatives can and should be doing.
GIVE DEMS/COMMUNISTS A TASTE OF THEIR OWN MEDICINE
“You think we’re rallying now? You ain’t seen nothing yet,” Waters said at the event, according to a HuffPost report. “Already you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants ... protesters taking up at their house saying ‘no peace, no sleep.’”
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she added.
Well, Trump supporters and conservatives tired of seeing the radical left harass members of the right unchallenged, need to do the same, they need to "boo" Democrats involved or supportive of this impeachment farce, "out of restaurants." If they see any of these Dem/Communist "in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere."
For those that are not in a position to physically protest, and live in a liberal district, call your congressman, every single day, be polite but firm on your concerns over the kangaroo court secret impeachment process, use their online contact forms, fax them.... make your voice heard in every way possible.
The point here is, if they want a fight, give them one and if we have to turn their own tactics against them until they realize they cannot win, then so be it.
If conservatives are unwilling to fight fire with fire and are willing to lay down and die, they deserve what they get.
The bottom line here is short and simple. Fight or die. Choose.
