My View From Inside The Turret
May 4th, 2022 will be marked as a special day in history for conservatives – that is the day we heard the President of the United States utter these words: The Americans that support the MAGA agenda are “the most extreme political group in US history.”
The 79 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, the Trump agenda, Make America Great Again – MAGA – have been classified by Joe Biden as the most extreme political group in history. If there ever was a statement that would divide America more, it pales in comparison to this doozey! “Clinging to their guns and bibles” and “Basket of Deplorables” are close, but not on the same level as this … this sets an entirely new level of discourse … one in which fully one half of the American electorate are now labeled “EXTREME”!
Think about that! Joe Biden has been pulled so far to the left by his political party that he has disparaged American citizens far more than even King George III before, during, and after the American Revolution.
But perhaps the words that matter the most, in response to this egregious sentiment, are the words of Abraham Lincoln, a president faced with a real insurrection … not simply a bunch of pissed off citizens who mobbed Capitol Hill.
On Peace: Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country and should dwell together in the bonds of fraternal feeling.
--November 20, 1860 Remarks at Springfield, Illinois
On War: Let your military measures be strong enough to repel the invader and keep the peace, and not so strong as to unnecessarily harass and persecute the people.
--May 27, 1863 Letter to John M. Schofield
On Democratic Government: Of our political revolution of '76, we all are justly proud. It has given us a degree of political freedom, far exceeding that of any other nation of the earth. In it the world has found a solution of the long mooted problem, as to the capability of man to govern himself. In it was the germ which has vegetated, and still is to grow and expand into the universal liberty of mankind.
--February 22, 1842 Temperance Address
On the Rebellion: This is essentially a People's contest. On the side of the Union, it is a struggle for maintaining in the world, that form, and substance of government, whose leading object is, to elevate the condition of men -- to lift artificial weights from all shoulders -- to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for all -- to afford all, an unfettered start, and a fair chance, in the race of life.
--July 4, 1861 Message to Congress
These are the words of a President and Commander-in- Chief who was faced with a genuine rebellion of his citizens and yet … take note … he did not denigrate his adversaries. He certainly had many opportunities to do it --- talk down his antagonists, those who opposed his ideas and actions --- but he did not.
Our current President has FAILED the most important test for any President of the United States and this test is TO BE THE PRESIDENT TO ALL CITIZENS. And we are diminished as a culture and a country because of Joe Biden’s failure.
May 4, 2022 – Marked by Conservatives, Republicans and many Independents as the date that Joe Biden threw down the gauntlet! That gauntlet has been picked up and will make itself known on November 8, 2022, with the largest vote to repudiate Biden’s comments, with the biggest vote in mid-term history. The Divider-in-Chief days are numbered. VOTE … like your country depended on it … VOTE!
