“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” — Abraham Lincoln

I have been trying to wrap my head around the Left’s response to Orlando. But I can’t. It is incomprehensible.

Where do I start?

How about the fact that the Left has put their drive for a different demographic footprint in America above national security and the safety of individual Americans. There is no doubt that President Obama and his utterly incompetent national security staff have slow rolled the fight against the Islamic State. This has allowed ISIS to metastasize across North Africa, advance into Europe and achieve a foothold in our own country.

There is no doubt the ill-advised removal of all American troops from Iraq led to the rise of this terrorist cancer. However, the push to bring in tens of thousands of people who we cannot properly vet is simply dangerous and subversive. Of course some of them will attack us. You cannot deny that reality and expect it to away. But the Left and their media cohorts are trying very hard to do just that.

It’s Donald Trump’s fault. He’s the problem, not the guy who just murdered 49  people. The media and any “progressive” you talk to will deny all day long that we were attacked by an evil political movement. It’s the NRA’s fault. It’s the Christian’s fault. And the oldie but goodie, it’s Bush’s fault.

No, it’s the fault of a radical jihadist who was enabled by the Obama administration who refused to lead the global community to rid the world of a terrorist movement, just as bad as Naziism or communism.

While this is going on, you have one of the chief enablers, Hillary Clinton, running for the presidency, while she is under investigation for damaging the national security of our country by her subversive email practices. I won’t even go into her debacles in the Middle East while she was secretary of state.

The Democrats have nominated and will vote for her anyway. This means the end of the Democratic Party as a valid American institution. They are now a corrupt movement, through and through, only concerned about their own power. The rule of law is paramount to the success of our society and yes, we inherited that from the British Empire, as distasteful as that is to you Mr. President. The Left wants to destroy this facet of our exceptionalism. They want us to be just like Mexico, run by an elite oligarchy. This is a threat to America and it is coming from within our own borders.

The Left wants to destroy the Second Amendment. We inherited this crucial right after fighting a long conflict against an aggressor. The right is not there for self defense, not to allow you to hunt and fish, but to protect against a tyrannical government. Do you really think Obama would have stopped with just abusing his political opposition with the IRS and other federal agencies if that right didn’t exist? The list of his abuses of power is long and distinguished and scary.

The Left wants us to disarm to achieve more power over ordinary Americans. That’s what socialism is all about Bernie Bros! If they will put the safety of one of their key constituents, the LGBT community, beneath their drive to satisfy overseas Islamic leaders, how long do you think it will be before they harm America in other ways in order to satisfy their self interests?

What does the Left want? They want to destroy the shining city on the hill. They want to destroy America as you and I know it. They want to destroy her excellence, her power, her greatness, her ability to be a force for good in the world. And they want money, and power, as much as they can get before the American lights go out.

These are all threats that can, and will if left unchecked, destroy this great country. November is an important election indeed.

I’ll end with a quote from Teddy Roosevelt, “We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us …” In other words, we will open our doors with open arms to anyone, as long as they want to become Americans!
