It’s been just three months since Project Veritas, the organization founded by super-investigator James O’Keefe, staged a coup to oust him. And of course the conservative world was abuzz last week when Fox News fired Tucker Carlson. The outrage of those who are watching the left-wing globalists tear away the fabric of America on a daily basis is fully justified and understandable. But should anyone really be surprised?
Many on the right are still seemingly unable to grasp the true nature of the enemy we face and how he is forced to operate. To this day, we hear laments that leftists never seek to engage conservatives in any worthwhile discussion of issues, instead resorting to name-calling and, whenever possible, outright suppression of conservative voices. Of course they do! His strategy is perfectly understandable, given the true nature of his ideology and resulting agenda.
A history lesson of leftists and how they routinely take power reveals all we need to know about the futility of trying to engage them for the purpose of “finding common ground,” “rising above the grudge” or some other pablum. These goals, while seemingly worthy, are simply out of the realm of reality. Worst of all, efforts to pursue this course ultimately aid and enable the left’s agenda.
Leftist ideology has its roots in the detestable teachings of Karl Marx, a bitter soul who was as dirty and depraved in mind as he was in person. Trying to lend a mantle of legitimacy to his envy and hatred of those around him who had striven to achieve and succeed, he invented his theories of collectivism, claiming that they were the keys to universal happiness and the well-being of society. His famous work “Das Kapital”, was the sum of his twisted thinking.
Unfortunately, an ideology of frustrated jealousy and hatred, which presents itself as the epitome of compassion and virtue, could find plenty of fertile soil in other equally darkened minds. So Marx’s work spread and eventually gave birth to such nightmarish monsters as the Soviet Union and Communist China. But from the beginning, it has had a major Achilles heel. Since it was founded on lies, it could only be advanced through lies.
The strategy, from Karl Marx to Saul Alinsky to the modern Democratic Party, is to promise happiness and abundance in exchange for freedom and success. Those who can be manipulated into believing such empty promises are too often willing to sacrifice freedom and the pursuit of happiness in the misplaced hope that they, and the needy around them, will reap an existence worthy of the benevolent state. So they sell their heritage and that of future generations while they consider themselves “virtuous”.
Invariably, a day of reckoning arrives, at which point support for the movement collapses. This is an inescapable pattern. It is therefore absolutely crucial that the ascendant powers keep a lid on any scrutiny until they are beyond accountability, a condition better known as tyranny. And this is where individuals like James O’Keefe and Tucker Carlson become extremely problematic.
If leftists tried to refine their plans for America to actually determine the best course for “We the People,” they would actually be arguing and debating the pros and cons of the policies they intend to implement. But this is neither his method nor his end game. Therefore, any bold and prominent voice of truth, O’Keefe and Carlson being prime examples, are a mortal threat to the left and must be silenced. It doesn’t get any more complicated than that.
Fortunately, the dirty tricks of lefties do not constitute a “game, set and match”. Quite the opposite, all-too-common efforts to marginalize and silence the right are stalling or even failing. This fight is not over yet, and our side can still win it, but only if we have the wits to recognize the truly vile nature of the enemy we face and muster the backbone to reject his sanctity and manipulations
O’Keefe and Carlson are already showing encouraging signs that this is precisely what they are aiming for. Project Veritas pretty much dried up and blew up when it became clear that the traitors had infiltrated and overtaken it. But the important work he had done under O’Keefe barely skipped a beat. In the short time since the riot, James O’Keefe has formed a new organization, the “O’Keefe Media Group”. And it’s back to the priceless task of uncovering left-wing lies and corruption.
Tucker Carlson has received several generous offers from other conservative outlets, including News Max and One America News. Despite Fox’s transparent efforts to silence him entirely, claiming that he is “still under contract” with them and thus has no First Amendment right to free speech, he can certainly challenge their “gag order “illegal and unconstitutional. He will get over this scam and be back in business shortly. His work is too valuable and his audience too loyal. Or he can create his own media group out of the Daily Caller, which he founded. Meanwhile, Fox News is on the road to the same oblivion in the face of Project Veritas. Maybe he can redeem himself by landing a big advertising contract with Anheuser Busch.
The moral of these tales is that Americans are still capable of speaking and communicating the truth, despite the Left’s best efforts to shut us down. But it is up to us whether we will fight to keep the light shining or whether we will bow to threats and intimidation from the left. The only darkness that can prevail over us is that which we allow. This is not the time to extinguish the torch of Freedom and Truth!
