Hearing more and more about various groups supporting or hating or split down the middle as they are, and what comes to mind is that none of us can really know who is doing what to whom at this time. What is certain is that the Founding Fathers did often note that United we Stand, Divided we Fall. What we are seeing today is a concerted effort to divide this nation small faction by small faction. Obama was the mastermind who began this with his attack dog, Holder, appropriately named "TSARs" (Russian tyrants), and with support from Lois Lerner who did a handy job on the TEA Party. We damned well better start getting our acts together or the war will be upon us.

Trump’s 'lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship' By Evan Sayet in his article "He Fights

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship.

Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.

I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.

Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60's. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.

Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.

Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking.. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN.. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”... Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond.

This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church.

Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do.

These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

Please pass this on..over and over, and again and again...

Good article, but I have a few comments (imagine THAT). First, totally agree that CNN has totally sold out and is a joke. They are unfortunately protected by the very Constitution that many of their Democratic Party members would see done away with or at least altered to comply with Marx and Alinsky. These same people who would have us surrender our guns to the government are missing the entire point of the 2nd and certainly fail to consider that with the 2nd gone, the 1st is not far behind.
Second comment is that although I agree that most of this trend toward Socialism began with the "children of the '60's, I would submit that I am one of them having come of age at the peak of the Viet Nam War and Hippie uprisings. I am a proud Veteran and 1 million % in support of the USA and its Constitution. Perhaps a better way of stating the "children of the '60's" would be to qualify it as a lot of those children of that era born in certain localities within this country , notably most of the large urban centers of the Coasts and up Nawth, and certainly not from my old neighborhood. During that hippie uprising period, in this part of the world, we had one episode of Black Panthers in New Orleans...should I refer to them as "late Black Panther members" because they got stupid and got made deceased when they took on the popo and National Guard types.
Basically, I'm suspecting a modified version of the division of the Civil War coming at us unless we all get our act together and put a stop to it.

I think I remember seeing video of this, didn't they pretty dramatically fail the "Red Mist Challenge" ?

Nathan, as I remember it, I was at Keesler at the time, and about maybe 6-8 of the critters got in one of the buildings of the Desire Housing Project and either started popping off rounds or whatever it took to attract the attention of the police who came out and ended their party. I know it made the national news.

I'm not sure where it was, but I remember some National Guard event where there was a jeep or truck mounted Browning .50 used against someone shooting out of a 2nd or 3rd story window, short but brutal burst, the .50 cal shot thru the building into the floor below and thru the roof above the window. Pretty sure it was US in the 60's.

I agree with this whole-heartedly. Seems we are slowly getting closer and closer to it.

Aren't you forgetting Woodrow Wilson and FDR?

Alan, agree, the "Progressive" Movement began back then with those critters plus a few so-called "intellectual" types, but I was commenting principally on the posted article that accused us kiddies of the '60's. My POV there is that whereas I agree that the emergence of the "Hippie Class" began with the stupidity of the Vietnam War, not all of us were participants in that culture...and for what it's worth, that nutcase who tutored ODumbass and his wife, Bernadine, were part of the military wing of that movement and are now busy rotting the brains of this current generation as they blissfully teach college and pass that BS on to today's kiddies, and unfortunately so many many others are doing the same thing.
