The Radical Left Is Coming for Conservatives

Radical Left



This week we know the radical Left in Congress are building up toward the televised, prime-time January 6th hearings which begin this week. That was what the Left was able to convince the major networks to agree to.

Since Jan. 6th, we, like many conservatives, called for the arrest of every individual that participated in storming and vandalizing the Capitol building. But it’s become clear that the play on the Left is to use this week to again weaponize the media against conservatives in advance of the hearings.

Just this morning on MSNBC, Mika Brzezinski and former White House Communications Director Dan Pfieffer under President Obama had the following exchange defaming conservatives as “freaks”:

Brzezinski: Are you saying that the Republican agenda is backed up by the freaks on Facebook?

Pfieffer: Absolutely.

Brzezinski: Just making sure.

Pfieffer: To be very clear . . . Facebook is the most powerful messaging platform for the extreme MAGA message.

This is the same Facebook that puts warning signs on our posts if we say anything they don’t agree with. If we used the same language, calling people on the Left “freaks,” our posts would be flagged or taken down altogether.

Personally, I’m not sure if they’re hoping that maybe by the end of the week, half of the country will agree with them and pledge allegiance to the Leftist agenda come the midterm elections in November. Good luck with that. It’s far more likely that American voters are going to be focused on the economy – especially if they can still barely afford to put gas in their cars or buy groceries, assuming they can even find what they need on the shelves. Then maybe foreign policy, as we watch President Biden desperately trying to appease Iran with another horrible nuclear deal that could ultimately provide the world’s No. 1 state sponsor of terrorism with a nuclear weapon.

When most of us enter the voting booth in November, most Americans won’t be thinking about something that happened in Washington, D.C., nearly two years prior. Many Americans will be worried about providing for their families. And a conservative slander campaign won’t change that.

ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy, and former U.S. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Ric Grenell summed up the hypocrisy behind the Left’s current strategy to paint conservatives in a false light:

I want to make one thing very clear about January 6th. Within hours of individuals breaking into the Capitol and committing vandalism, [I] and many other Republicans were very clear to say: Find each individual who’s committing vandalism and arrest them. This is unacceptable. And by the way, many Republicans were saying this the previous summer before when Seattle, and Portland, Minneapolis, and Chicago were all attacked by BLM. There’s a difference between Republicans and Democrats on January 6th in that Republicans generally condemned both sides of the violence whenever it happened. Democrats didn’t. Democrats were totally silent when it came to BLM. I’m so tired of them playing one side in Washington, D.C. We didn’t have nightly hearings when it came to all of the BLM attacks, and people killed, and properties damaged. We didn’t hear much about that. We didn’t see the DOJ going after those individuals, but we do see it when it comes to January 6th. I’ll say it again, and I’ll say it till I’m blue in the face: Whenever we see violence or vandalism, I don’t care who did it, you should arrest them. And we shouldn’t play politics like the Left is doing.

And the congressional January 6th committee is not even just focusing on the events of January 6th. They want to talk about abolishing the Electoral College, or the Electoral Count Act, and nationalizing voter registration. Ric Grenell offered his analysis of what conservatives need to do to defend the integrity of our elections:

I think it’s really important that Republicans go on the offense here.  Mailing ballots to individuals on a voter list creates all kinds of chaos because people get multiple ballots. We all know that. You see them everywhere. You’re getting multiple ballots. They’re trying to get people to vote more than once by flooding the zone. What we should do is we should go back to paper ballots. We should go back to one-day voting. And we should have very limited absentee ballots. You should have to request it, and you should have to have a good reason. Otherwise let’s show up and let’s produce an ID. And I think that every state should require an ID – if you are against a voter ID, it means you’re cheating; you’re trying to cheat.

If you need a constitutional amendment to solve your problem, your problem isn’t being solved. There’s not going to be a constitutional amendment to get rid of the Electoral College. It would take years, even if they had the support for such a move, which they do not. But this is all just a distraction, likely to mask what a weak case they're bringing to these January 6th hearings. They have no new compelling info, no smoking gun. They can just repeat what we’ve all heard and seen a million times already.
