This sort of backward tutorship and pseudo-academic authority is a pie-in-the-face of those who are not stupid. Lemon, a pie-thrower, and his cable ilk were insistent on their stance that any time, any place, and any way, a protest is worthy of protected rights. The assumption was made, apparently – as long as they are Democrat Party supporters and not Tea Party apparatchiks, Republicans or conservatives – that they are quite free to say anything at any time: peaceably be damned!
By being unwilling to listen to the voice of the Canadian people, by ignoring science, and by seeing the Convoy as a threat to his authority rather than the urgent message it is, Mr. Trudeau has brought the situation to crisis. At this point, neither side can gracefully back down. Trudeau cannot walk back his rhetoric nor can he stop the progress of the Emergency Powers Act. He is committed to escalation until his opposition surrenders or is destroyed.
So, when activists in the BDS movement say they are critical not of Jews, but of Zionism, it would be fruitful to ask of just what form of Zionism are they critical. If they bother to answer at all, what they say will likely be superficial and have little to do with Zionism as it actually existed historically or exists today.
Mostly, we have to accept that things will get ugly, maybe very ugly, and we have to prepare to give back just as ugly as we get. For the foreseeable future, that’s almost a certainty. Get yourself and your family ready for the worst. Fix your mind to the fact that life isn’t the same now as it’s ever been for any of us, and it isn’t going to get better anytime soon. It certainly won’t get better if we lay like doormats while Antifa and their puppet-masters roll over us.
They have morphed from the Party of the People to the Party Over the People. They are no longer the party that supports unions. For now, they are the party that is controlled by the unions. This transition is very sad to observe. Most of our parents grew up supporting the party of JFK. If JFK were alive today, he would not recognize the New Democrat Party.
Maybe they really are concerned about keeping American businesses competitive and productive. After all, in a global economy we have many competitors so perhaps they are going to address some of the issues that hamper our ability to compete on the world stage. Strangely, though, the Order is not about foreign competition, but rather mostly about competition between American firms.
