In a nation enjoying the freedoms that we do, there should be no reason to grow testy over political differences. We have the right to say what we want in America, and we had better start acting like we deserve to keep that right.
The First Amendment is the primordial ooze of the American Dream yet, in times of turmoil, we begin to act like children who’ve been given a toy sword, swinging it wildly and dangerously at anyone and any thing that dares to cross our path.
In the 21st century, the oppressive, politically-correct culture police have essentially weaponized the idea of “social justice”, barring words, phrases, and hand gestures from the civilized world – as if that would somehow make hate go away.
What’s worse is just how far out the tentacles of this monster reach. We are currently well beyond the threshold of common sense, with a small college in California officially conflating the “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan with white supremacy.
San Diego City College hosted an event allegedly examining “white supremacy” earlier this month, which labeled “Make America Great Again” as an instance of “covert white supremacy.”
An event examining instances of “white supremacy” at San Diego City College referred to the phrase, “Make America Great Again” as an instance of “covert white supremacy” that is currently “socially acceptable,” according to a report by Campus Reform.
The event, entitled “Confronting White Supremacy through the Arts,” included a white supremacy “pyramid,” which separated “overt white supremacy” from “covert white supremacy,” suggesting that, for example, the difference between “KKK” and “Make America Great Again” is that one is “overt” racism, which the other is “covert.”
We must remember, however, that hate begets hate.
By ridiculing or accusing those with whom you disagree politically, you are acquiescing to the idea that there is no shared interest between you in making America the nation it set out to be. That is power of political discrimination, and we must be cautious not to entertain its emotional plea for attention.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
