The Year America Lost Its Mind
Something happened to America this past year. It was the year when being white became a crime. It was the year of the pandemic. It was the year the election turned upside down. It was the year that America lost its mind.
One of America's most insidious social developments in recent years is what they call the “Cancel Culture.” If people don’t like you or what you say, they simply cancel you. They cancel your speech, your book, your name, your voice. And they get you fired.
Today’s latest actors in this arena are Black Lives Matter members and the people with whom they demonstrate who want to “cancel” the police. And anyone who disagrees with them risks getting ‘canceled,’ too.
You don’t like my flag? Cancel it.
You don’t like my face? Cancel it.
You don’t like my opinion? Well, just cancel me!
And it isn’t just that they cancel you. Using social media, they lobby all their friends and followers to cancel you, too. If they don’t like you, what you say or do, or what you stand for, they simply want you gone. You no longer exist. And all their friends and followers agree.
These are the snowflakes who simply can’t stand that someone has an opinion that is different from theirs. These are the demonstrators who demand that the rest of us accept what they believe to be true, no matter how false it is, or unrealistic it is, or dangerous it is, or how opposed to it we are. Free speech is wonderful, but it is just for them.
This is where tyranny begins. And it leads to the kind of totalitarianism that we saw in Nazi Germany and in the old Soviet Union, and that we see today in Xi Jinping's Communist China and in Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
Capitol Offenses & Rush Tribute
The Democrat vendetta against Donald Trump just doesn’t go away, but at least the impeachment farce is over. The attack on the Capitol was never the fault of President Trump, and everyone knew it. Cuomo and Newsom are getting hammered by their own Democrats. History distorted. And a tribute to Rush Limbaugh.
Picking Up The Gauntlet
Ilana picks up the gauntlet thrown down by the left, exposing their lies in the open air of free speech, and challenging their blatant dishonesty and hypocrisy.
America’s Greatest Challenge
Freedom of speech vs. the Snowflakes at De Paul University left vs. right, liberals vs. conservatives, big tech vs. We the People: overcoming these conflicts and bringing sanity back to our country will be America’s greatest challenge.
Punishing Excellence, Rewarding Failure!
America is at a dangerous crossroad. The Democrats are choosing to continue to punish - and destroy if possible - the one person who has given so much to America. They are trying to turn this country into their own little fiefdom and destroy the constraints of the Constitution that made it great. We have a lot of work to do.
Where Do We Go From Here?
The inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20 took place in a war zone that we used to call Washington DC., 25, 000 troops, fences, and razor wire. Our present is frightening and our future is uncertain. What is happening to America and what can we expect in the days and months to come?
