• Left Not Interested in Perusuading … Only Silencing … Coercing …

    Surge Summary: The evidence continues to mount that the political and cultural Left is not interested in debating and persuading – but in shutting down all alternative viewpoints and forcing people to bend to their ideologies.

    by Gary Bauer

    I have often made the point that the left is not interested in trying to win public policy debates.  They want to make important debates impossible by making conservative ideas unspeakable and unavailable.  Here’s the latest example.

    The Federalist is totally within the mainstream of American conservatism. There is nothing unusual about its content except its exceptional writing.  Some of my columns have been published there.

    Evidently, Google and NBC News conspired with a left-wing group in Great Britain in an attempt to shut down The Federalist, depriving Americans of yet another outlet for conservative news and opinion.  Evidently, the issue wasn’t anything The Federalist had written, but some of the reader remarks in their comments section.

    Thankfully, there has been some pushback, but it remains to be seen whether it will significantly matter.

    This is yet another sign of what the left intends to do once it controls all the levers of power.  They are going after every expression of conservatism.

    Here’s another example.  Bill Palmer is a left-wing blogger with hundreds of thousands of followers.  Yesterday, he posted a totally unhinged rant against all conservatives.  Consider these excepts:

    “It’s time we acknowledge that conservatism isn’t just some political view. It means you’re the very bottom rung of society, dangerous and deranged. . .  people who flaunt their conservatism are psychotic. . .

    “Conservatives CANNOT be teachers, police officers, doctors, lawyers, coaches, or bosses. . .  Conservatives can do menial work, until they’re ready to join the human race.”

    This is a persistent theme on the left, which is constantly trying to force men and women of faith to bend to their will.  The left wants to force doctors and even nuns to be complicit in abortions.  President Trump issued an order to stop it, but that order will be one of the first things to go if Joe Biden is elected president.

    But don’t think Palmer’s ranting is just the musing of some wacko.  This week, Rep. Sean Patrick Mahoney of New York, a sitting member of Congress, attacked the phrase “religious liberty” for being “a bogus term.”

    The stakes could not be greater this November, my friends.  Please stand with CWF now.
