Leftists are always saying that conservatives must be more civil and that discourse must improve, or that the United States is becoming too polarized. Or they scold conservatives or Republicans for being too “divisive,” too “obstructionist,” or unwilling to put the country above their party. All while their allies (or maybe even they themselves) are wishing death on (or even threatening to kill) conservatives and Republicans.
Unfortunately, many on the right buy into these standards (if it against your morals to be incivil or rude or something, I’m not saying you should be. Just understand that these standards are not about civility, they are about censorship and control). Well, Kurt Schlichter has a message for the right (on how to deal with the left):
Obama and his minions are serious about defeating us, so we need to be serious about defeating them. Let’s banish cheesy talk about “Working together for the good of the country.” The only thing that is good for this country right now is defeating Obama’s leftist agenda, fully, completely and in detail. You can’t work with him, you can’t compromise with him, you can’t convince him.
(emphasis added (bold, not italics))
That is correct. So, whenever you see some leftist blabbering about “doing what is best for America,” kindly (if that is the kind of person you are), or not, tell them that what is “best for America (not to mention every other place in the world)” is destroying them. The enemy is the left, not whatever the left claims it is (the “deficit” or whatever). This is war; and unity, cohesion, and civility have no f*cking place in war.
There is much more strategy in Mr. Schlichter’s post. Such as:
Spending cuts? Obama doesn’t get a say. Sequestration is going to happen unless the GOP agrees to change it. That’s a $1.2 trillion cut. Let it happen, and let Secretary Hagel deal with the defense cuts. Obama loses again unless you save him.
GOP, remember Napoleon’s admonition to never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. Let Obama try and force the red state Democrat senators to come out against guns. Let the Democrats tear themselves up while we watch and gobble popcorn.
Speaking of strategy, I may have another post about strategy up shortly.
