The Biden Administration is wrecking the country with its irresponsible policies, including open borders, increased taxation, the Afghan withdrawal, and support of pernicious critical race theory in schools and the military. My article about political terrorism from the Left ended with this: “If we don’t fight back now with every means at our disposal, political terrorism will turn America into Venezuela.” In response, readers have asked for advice on how we can fight back (besides voting Democrats out of office). Here are some suggestions.
First and foremost, everyone must speak out in spite of attempts by the Left to extinguish freedom of expression. Stand up whenever you are confronted by political correctness and the thought police. Attorney General Garland seems to think he can intimidate parents with threats of FBI investigation. He will lose. Your right to free speech is protected by the Constitution.
Do everything possible to protect your children from the insidious garbage being taught in our schools. Demand that local school boards condemn critical race theory. The government does not own your children and cannot stop you from complaining. Your tax money is what pays for schools and teachers. You should withhold financial support from universities that attempt to brainwash students with leftist ideology, and pull your kid out of any school that succumbs to leftist indoctrination.
Refuse to confess your alleged “white privilege” and instead loudly proclaim that critical race theory is a false, racist doctrine. White people are being demonized and marginalized without mercy. According to CRT, if you are white, you are automatically guilty of racism whether you realize it or not. People should not be judged on the basis of their skin color. This is a complete repudiation of Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Many gullible whites are capitulating to the demand of CRT and Black Lives Matter thugs that whites should acknowledge their racism. If you are confronted by this racist attempt at intimidation, show some backbone. Don’t be one of the weak ones who surrender. Stand your ground and refuse.
Defend the practice of meritocracy in your work environment. Wherever possible, endorse equality over equity, and equality of opportunity over equality of outcome. Equity is the opposite of merit. In an equitable world, skin color determines everything. According to the Left, the right kind of skin color is black and brown. White is the wrong color. In case you didn’t know, that’s what your kids are being taught in public schools and elite universities like Harvard, Yale, and Stanford. Without meritocracy, the U.S. will turn into a third world country. Don’t let them get away with it.
If your employer requires you to read White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo and Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist, simply refuse. These are racist works by writers who are openly anti-white. DiAngelo, Kendi and CRT are the embodiment of racism. You need to speak against them. Instead, read my book, Tyranny of the Minority, and if necessary, get a better job where your civil liberties are respected.
If you are a person of color, resist the efforts of Black Lives Matter to turn you into a victim. Respected black figures such as Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Bob Woodson, Candace Owens, and Larry Elder are unanimous in their agreement that systemic racism is a thing of the past. There is nothing you cannot achieve if you put your mind to it. Expend your energy on constructive goals. Encourage your children to embrace the virtues of education and hard work.
Communicate your feelings and beliefs to your elected representatives, insisting that they join you in rejecting venomous leftist ideology. Write to your senator and congressperson. Let them know that you don’t agree with leftist talking points. Demand that they thwart President Joe Biden’s open border policy by supporting U.S. immigration law.
Stop watching CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, and ABC. Cancel your subscriptions to the New York Times and Washington Post. These outlets are attempting to poison your mind with leftist misinformation. If we get together and boycott them, their toxic influence will be destroyed.
Support conservative candidates for political office. Find out how you can assist their election campaigns. Answer phones, talk to your neighbors, get off your butt!
You can do what this author does, namely, write books and articles expressing your point of view so that others can be won over to conservative ideas and principles.
The bottom line: If enough of us refuse to remain quiet but instead stand up for what we believe, that’s all it will take to stop the woke revolution. Now is the time for us to repeat the rallying cry from the movie, Network: “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
