Megan Rapinoe’s antics spell out exactly the type of civil war we are up against
The progressive left seek to dismantle our culture

As we drift this week in the debaucherous chaos of Megan Rapinoe — aka what would happen if Rosie O’Donnell played soccer — it is important to consider a revelatory Twitter thread earlier in the week from Jesse Kelly and an on-air rant by Tucker Carlson.
For in the midst of progressive cancer, both men had strong medicine.
Kelly, who has clearly shown himself to be a man who refuses to pull punches when it comes to America’s domestic enemies, nonetheless confessed that he has under-appreciated their true malicious intent for the rest of us:
For too long the people on the Right (myself included) have called the American Left ‘socialists’ or some brand of that. But it’s dawned on me they’re something else entirely and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Even the commies loved their country. This is something worse. The commies didn’t want to flood their countries with illegal aliens and deport nobody. The commies would never have allowed government schools to encourage young children to question their gender. Or allowed a young boy to dress in drag and dance for men. I can’t stop thinking about that Gallup poll showing only 22 percent of Democrats are proud of their country. Something has really shifted. It’s not UN-American. It is ANTI-American. That’s not communism. That’s an insurgency.
That is exactly right and is what we’ve diagnosed on “The Steve Deace Show” for quite some time. If conservatism is actually going to be capable of being an effective movement going forward, its adherents need to realize that its foes aren’t primarily driven by a political ideology. No, they are devout knee-benders to a spirit of the age cult, whose iconoclastic goal is the dismantling of Western Civilization, or Judeo-Christendom, for the purposes of installing a totally different culture.
I get how hard this is to embrace, though, even for a former military man like Kelly. For it means that words like freedom, tolerance, and humility are actually nowhere to be found in the playbook of the Rapinoe mob, and thus our public spaces cannot truly be shared with them in any real sense over the long term.
Either they will win and rule us, or we must do what it takes to stop that from happening. That’s called a civil war folks, which is exactly what the militant left has been waging for quite some time now while we focus on Rasmussen polls.
As for Tucker Carlson, he pointed out during one of his shows the painfully obvious fact that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) loathes the very country that rescued her from oppression and then elected her to Congress. If we don’t learn from that stupidity vis-a-vis our nation’s immigration policy, he said, the natural consequences will be both existential and deserved:
No country can survive being ruled by people who hate it. … [Omar] scolded us, called us names, showered us with contempt. It’s infuriating. More than that, it is also ominous. The United States admits more immigrants more than any other country on Earth, more than a million every year. The Democratic Party demand we increase that by and admit far more. OK, Americans like immigrants, but immigrants have got to like us back.
To share beliefs with Carlson and Kelly used to simply mean that you were an American, regardless of party. But now they qualify you as a bigot who must shut up and guzzle whatever Rapinoe and Omar spew forth from their rancid firehose.
Just look at Rapinoe’s “I deserve this” taunt and see it through to its logical conclusion, because it implies something very dire if you get in her way. It is Loki in the first Avengers movie: You were meant to be ruled by her, you backwards fool.
Sure, laugh at the preposterous reality of that if you chose, but it is the very sort of laughter that is the soundtrack to putting a bullet in your culture’s head day by day. We are being surrounded by an orgy of nonsense that far too many people write off as just another political debate, instead of hearing it as the ominous and looming executioner’s song that it is.
Editor’s Note: “One of our tangents here at Gofinancial.net is the belief that Social Security, Medicare and Home Equity is in danger of being raided by the new left looking out for themselves, mostly. Is this force ANTI AMERICAN or just SELF SERVING?You don’t have to agree with us, but others are and so we add their voices here to support our own. Yes, you can object. It’s OK.” Warren Strycker, veteran mortgage professional.
