    Surge Summary: The crush of individuals attempting to enter America via the nation’s southern border — both illegally and in the face of life-threatening dangers – puts paid to Progressive’s venomous lies about the United States. Apparently lots of folks abroad find life in this land attractive enough to want to make their way here, despite the Left’s tireless efforts to destroy it.

    The Threat to America

    Throughout history, propaganda that undermines the morale of a nation has always been an effective weapon.  Well, no enemy of the United States – not communist China, not Russia, not Iran – could do more through propaganda to hurt our country than what the American left is doing right now.

    The left’s rhetoric is turning our people against each other.  (See next item.)  It’s making our children hate the country of their birth.  No foreign enemy could accomplish what the political left has managed to do.  And it’s no coincidence that our enemies now parrot the left’s rhetoric to slander America.

    Throughout history, every country taught its citizens to love their country.  That’s how countries survive in this dangerous world.

    But for decades, our cultural leaders, and at times our government leaders, have been telling our children that they live in a terrible, racist country.  They’ve been telling our children that there are only two types of people:  You’re either oppressed in America or you are an oppressor in America.

    That is a poisonous lie!

    Obviously, America isn’t perfect.  No nation is.  But compared to any other country, America is a shining city upon a hill.

    That’s why each and every day thousands of people risk their lives to enter this country illegally.  But people of color are not coming here in droves because America is a systemically racist nation.  Ironically, the crisis at the southern border disproves the left’s big lie about America.

    Those slandering America range from the president of the United States to university professors and teachers in our public schools.  It includes many media commentators and professional athletes who have enjoyed unimaginable wealth and privilege.  And yet they pay back their country by tearing it down.

    If the left’s hatred continues to run its course unchallenged, it will bring America to its knees as effectively as any virus or nuclear missile landing on our soil.

    Remember the Tea Party – a spontaneous movement of Americans frustrated with big government?  My old friend Bill Bennett, who was Ronald Reagan’s secretary of Education and I served as under secretary, said this morning that we need a cultural Tea Party of citizens willing to defend our country from the lies of the radical left.

    That was and still is Donald Trump’s America First movement.
