Rush Is Right

2010 April 22

Rush has said and written many eloquent words, but this editorial for the Wall Street Journal stands alone.

Liberals and the Violence Card

Conservative protest is motivated by a love of what America stands for.

Like the millions of citizens who’ve peacefully risen up and attended thousands of rallies in protest, I seek nothing more than the preservation of the social contract that undergirds our society. I do not hate the government, as the left does when it is not running it. I love this country. And because I do, I insist that the temporary inhabitants of high political office comply with the Constitution, honor our God-given unalienable rights, and respect our hard-earned private property. For this I am called seditious, among other things, by some of the very people who’ve condemned this society?

I reject the notion that America is in a well-deserved decline, that she and her citizens are unexceptional. I do not believe America is the problem in the world. I believe America is the solution to the world’s problems. I reject a foreign policy that treats our allies like our enemies and our enemies like our allies. I condemn the president traveling the world apologizing for America’s great contributions to mankind. And I condemn his soft-peddling the dangers we face from terrorism. For this I am inciting violence?

…The Obama/Clinton/media left are comfortable with the unrest in our society today. It allows them to blame and demonize their opponents (doctors, insurance companies, Wall Street, talk radio, Fox News) in order to portray their regime as the great healer of all our ills, thus expanding their power and control over our society.

A clear majority of the American people want no part of this. They instinctively know that the Obama way is not how things get done in this country. They are motivated by love. Not hate, not sedition. They love their country and want to save it from those who do not.

    He nailed it. As usual.

    Still, I wonder how much good a cohesive, well-founded, well-stated argument will do.

    These vandals of our Republic have no interest in what is right. Their motivation is fundamentally different from ours.

    They seek to destroy, partially for destruction’s sake itself: they hate what our nation stands for and want to kill it out of wanton, violent rage.

    But there are many (and sadly there are some Republicans among them) who have wagered their personal fortunes on the country’s demise, and are helping things along to line their own pockets.

    I applaud Rush for this great and true statement of fact. I just fear that, having seen that their bankrupt ideology has no logical response to such statements, they may seek to argue their demented case in a less peaceful way.

    Lord knows they’ve done it before.
