Seeking Killer Instincts: Apply Within
Required: Determination to Defeat Your Adversary
Naples, FL — “Whatever happened to Rep. Maxine Waters and her blatant call for violence against Trump administration officials just for being Trump administration officials, calling leftists to get in their faces and confront them everywhere?” asks ACRU Executive Director Allen West in his latest OPED for TownHall.com.
West explains, “I am very sure that as you read this missive, you can name countless other instances of the progressive socialist left willfully and intentionally targeting their political opposition with threats, intimidation, fear, coercion, and, yes, violence. In the face of this totalitarian and tyrannical political violence, it is time for Republicans to find the courage to develop a political killer instinct. Now, you can bet your bottom dollar that leftists will read this and take umbrage. They will respond with unrighteous indignation, believing that my words mean I am calling for retribution. That is not the case.”
Rather, it’s time for Republicans to use the rule of law against the street fighting and unconstitutional tactics of the left.
West continues, “Where we have an out-of-control, Soros-backed District Attorney focusing more on political opponents than keeping criminals off the streets in red states. Republican governors should be removing these individuals from office. Instead of sitting back and watching the left overrun our country with illegal immigrants, a lot of single military-age males, Republican governors should be enforcing the law and repatriating these individuals back south of our border and undermining the reign of the terrorist Mexican drug cartels.”
“Why do we not hear more Republican governors and elected officials asserting constitutional nullification? In other words, sending a message to the Biden administration that his ideologically driven executive orders will not be followed if they are not consistent with the enumerated constitutional powers granted?”
West concludes, “There are two books every Republican and conservative should read before the end of this year: Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War.” Republicans are being consistently outmaneuvered from a strategic political perspective, and that must end. It can only end if you understand the leftists and what drives them. Then, develop the political killer instinct to defeat them, deny them their objectives, and go on offense against their delusions and derangement.”
