Janis Joplin once sang, “Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose.”
And I think the Leftist Extremists of the Democrat Party have adopted that as their new slogan.
The line was from a song called ” Me and Bobby Magee” and it was about a woman reminiscing about a lost love. The line referenced basically infers that freedom isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It means being responsible for one’s self and therefore too hard.
And boy, do the Dems believe that. Which is funny, because when I was growing up, the Dems were all about freedom, free speech, free love, free to do your thing, free to be you and me, all that. Republicans were portrayed as the big old meanies who wanted rules, restrictions, orders, mandates.
Somewhere in their long, slow march to Marxism and Communism, the Dems realized that there would have to be casualties. For one thing, Communism requires control of the people. You can’t have a Marxist state with people out there owning their own property, making their own money, having their own ideas and sharing them, and doing what they want. Once John Q. Public does his own thing and other people see it, they want to do that too. And, poof, freedom spreads like wildfire and control of the masses is gone.
And so, freedom must become an evil concept, a word ignored and banished. Maybe that’s why all we hear or see from our local lefties in their speech and their ugly blue signs is ” unity” and a variety of other words approved by the Democrat Politburo. But never “Freedom.”
It’s funny because they do want you to be able to kill your baby at will, to indoctrinate your children into a sex change, and to ignore rule of law whenever it suits their purposes. They want to tell businesses when to open and close, how much to pay employees, and who to sell their services to. They want to remove people with different opinions off of public forums. They call themselves the “Party of Choice” when they really only want some of us to have limited choices about things they approve of.
But don’t you dare tell citizens to march peacefully to the Capitol of the United States and let their voices be heard. And don’t you dare speak freely about your opinions of Black Lives Matter or Antifa. Don’t you dare support a political candidate they hate. Don’t publish data about Covid 19 and mask wearing that contradicts theirs. And for goodness sake, don’t point out the evidence of theft in an election.
I guess they don’t realize that freedom, most specifically freedom of speech, is the main pillar of a government of the people, by the people or for the people. Or maybe that’s something they don’t want. In fact, I think they fear it. If the people are in charge and are mobilized, they can’t run and hide. They can’t ignore us. They can’t pretend we don’t matter. They want to remain the elite in charge and they want us to stay in our lanes and shut up.
I don’t condone the violence on the Capitol building. But, I must admit that in the back of my mind I wondered if maybe our Elitist Overlords needed a little ” wake up call.” They obviously didn’t get one through the previous two protests regarding election fraud.
We have to remember that the Leftist Socialist Democrat Extremists aren’t taking orders from us anymore. They serve a new master, the CCP and a set of one world corporations, banks, billionaire oligarchs and drug companies. We have seen what the CCP uses as its blueprint for suppression. As Dan Bongino said the other day, “There is nothing more dangerous than a stupid smart person. ” The Leftist Socialist Democrat Extremists are exactly that. And they are following the CCP model.
We have to keep fighting back and make sure that we use that “F” word freedom as much as possible. We need to educate our children about it. And we need to show the lefties we won’t let it go easily.
