The Tenacious and the Timid
Today’s Left is Mastering ‘Fortune Favors the Bold’
Naples, FL — “It cannot be debated that the progressive socialist left in America are indeed bold and audacious. They have come to the point of clearly articulating and enacting their delusional and deranged ideological agenda and dare to be challenged. Recently here in Texas, there was a piece of legislation signed into law codifying the protection of women’s sports against biological males. The ceremony was held at the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame in Denton. As the signing participants exited, they were met by a feral crowd who were so emboldened that some were spat upon,” observes ACRU Executive Director Allen West in his latest OPED for TownHall.com.
West continues, “Am I the only one who finds it interesting that certain Americans are locked away — with constitutional rights violated in what can only be referred to as the DC Gulag — while members of Antifa go about killing and beating people, along with destroying property? I find the recent case of journalist Andy Ngo very interesting in that the individuals responsible for beating him were found not guilty of being responsible for beating him. By the way, the defense attorney affirmed to the jury, in the courtroom, that she was Antifa and would remember the faces of the jury.”
“Yes, the left, as they have historically, have embraced the meaning of Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat and boldly dare anyone to stop them. And why should they not be emboldened since the supposed political opposition party cowers before them and subscribes to some disturbing Marquis of Queensberry rules of engagement? You never hear about bipartisanship, compromise, or working across the aisle when leftists are in control. In the majority they are tyrannical, and in the minority they are tenacious.”
West continues, “Now, thanks to the recalcitrance and timidity of the GOP, even when they have all the evidence required, the leftists have once again displayed their boldness in appointing David Weiss as Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden. Yeah, Merrick Garland has appointed the same fella who was going to allow Hunter Biden to get away with federal tax evasion and gun charges with no punishment. ”
West concludes, “It is time a loyal, bold, and constitutional political opposition faces the leftists. It is time to adopt the motto of the British Special Air Service (SAS): “Who Dares, Wins.” We are at a decisive point for the future of America. When leftists like the Governor of Illinois says he will allow illegal immigrants to be law enforcement officers. When leftists tell you that your children are not your own. When leftists tell you that they control what appliances or light bulbs you can own, the quote, “Come let us reason together” is nullified.”
