It wasn’t too many years ago that then presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, uttered the infamous words about a “Basket of Deplorables”. She used inflammatory language to define the “basket”. She directed her wrath at Americans who supported future President Trump.
At the time, I wondered why no one in the news media followed up with an obvious question. “What do you do with a basket of deplorables”? I am sure she would have muttered something about better education, implying that those who opposed her politics were really ignorant and obviously uneducated. Not surprisingly, that is exactly what the Democrat Party has been calling Trump supporters, conservatives and most Republicans for the past five years. But then there is the next step:
Recently, in Virginia, a leftist woman let the cat out of the bag. At the end of her impassioned speech against anyone opposing a litany of leftist ideas, she uttered the all-important words “Let them die”. In simple terms, this is the logical conclusion to “What do you do with a basket of deplorables”. If American citizens “deplorables” are incorrigible and refuse re-education, then they must not be allowed to pollute the new world totalitarian order. The great communist, socialist or fascist ideas must be preserved at all cost – including the freedom of the individual American citizen and the survival of America itself.
This anti-pollution or political cleansing activity of the radical left is ongoing. People are being historically, socially, economically and physically isolated and damaged even if they utter a common sense opposing thought. The number of apologies rendered for saying “women have babies” is astounding. (A teacher in Loudoun County was suspended and his job threatened because he uttered a similar comment.)
There can be no question about what the intentions of the Socialist Democrats are. They intend to rule not govern. Those who stand in their way will be eliminated, and there is really no nice way to do that. There is, however, a cautionary phrase for all “rulers”:
Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and societal collapse is inevitable under the resultant totalitarianism.
