We must be careful of the words we use to describe people and events. Using the wrong word, whether accidental or intentional, to avoid conflict can change the entire context of the story. During the Summer of Love in 2020, the gatherings of people in cities like Seattle and Portland were called protests. In fact, they were unlawful occupations that included personal injuries, sexual assaults, and plenty of destruction of property. Protesting sounded much better.
Using a moniker instead of a name can artificially elevate the importance of an individual. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a below-average member of Congress representing some of the good people of New York. She is known as a member of the Squad, a group of radical far-left Democrats. During her time in Congress, Cortez had no bills that she had written passed by the House. To use the phrase, AOC, to reference Cortez is to give her a level of prominence she does not deserve. Tom Brady has earned TB12. Cortez has achieved nothing, and I will never use AOC again.
The Fentanyl epidemic claims 100,000 American deaths per year. The product is made in China and sent to Mexico to smuggle into America. Nothing happens in China without the government being aware. Both China and Mexico are complicit in the death of those killed by imported Fentanyl.
We, including the media, continue to call the deaths by Fentanyl drug overdoses. Some may be, but most of these deaths result from Fentanyl poisoning. These unfortunate folks are taking a tablet thinking it is a particular drug only to find it laced with illicitly manufactured fentanyl. The fentanyl-laced dosage is so powerful that it causes a quick death.
It has been determined that many of these deaths result from young people buying pills via social media, often for the first time. These “experiments” turn out to be fatal mistakes.
Every day, authorities in Texas seize enough illicitly manufactured fentanyl to kill millions of unsuspecting Americans. The cartels hide fentanyl in tires, cavities in car bodies, water pumps, and other creative vessels that can house these plastic-wrapped bricks of death.
Every Democrat politician is quick to go to the campaign ads claiming they want to eradicate the fentanyl epidemic and the carnage it brings to America. They show themselves to be the biggest hypocrites in history. As soon as you ask them how they feel about cutting off the supply, building the Wall, and shutting down illegal immigration, they back down and fold like a paper tiger in a wet windstorm.
Democrats are not concerned with America or Americans. They dislike this country and want it torn down and replaced by some fantasy socialistic nirvana. They have turned their backs on the Black and Brown communities. They have given up on the educational system. They do not recognize Borders and want a world community. They want a green economy but do not have the ingenuity to achieve one. They have no dreams or vision and live solely on emotions.
We are amidst a Revolution of the people, with the weapon of choice being the ballot. We are on a two-year countdown. We hold Biden at bay until November when we take back the Congress. Then we go to work laying the groundwork for a complete red takeover in 2024. We must be ready with a plan to hit the ground as soon as Biden’s clothes are out of the White House. We can do this. Jefferson would be proud of our effort and patriotism.
