Last Sunday, my friend Daniel Greenfield delivered a brilliant speech to the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention.
Daniel explains that no matter how many elections Republicans win, the Democrats, which is to say the radical left, always nullify the election by waging a ruthless a culture war that is a toxic mix of Orwellian Newspeak, and Bolshevik ruthlessness.
As the late great Andrew Breitbart said: “Politics is downstream from culture.”
Daniel is one of the smartest people I know. Thus, I hope that you will take the time to watch this video, or if you prefer, read the transcript below.
This is a civil war.
There aren’t any soldiers marching on Charleston… or Myrtle Beach. Nobody’s getting shot in the streets. Except in Chicago… and Baltimore, Detroit and Washington D.C.
But that’s not a civil war. It’s just what happens when Democrats run a city into the ground. And then they dig a hole in the ground so they can bury it even deeper.
If you look deep enough into that great big Democrat hole, you might even see where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.
But it’s not guns that make a civil war. It’s politics.
Guns are how a civil war ends. Politics is how it begins.
How do civil wars happen?
Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.
That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.
I know you’re all thinking about President Trump.
He won and the establishment, the media, the democrats, rejected the results. They came up with a whole bunch of conspiracy theories to explain why he didn’t really win. It was the Russians. And the FBI. And sexism, Obama, Bernie Sanders and white people.
