And now, as the remedy to the white supremacism that afflicts us everywhere, with Bull Connor and George Wallace stalking the streets and slavery itself just around the corner, Pelosi says that what we really need are people who will rat out their neighbors in the service of the benign and gentle state: “There has to be vigilance. People have to alert other authorities if they think that someone is on a path to domestic terrorism, to violence of any kind.”
Aware that there might be hidebound naysayers who will not see the wisdom of turning America into an authoritarian police state in which only one point of view, that of the far Left, can lawfully be enunciated, Pelosi added: “Obviously you have to balance the free speech issues,” and “Freedom is so important to us, but that freedom also carries public safety with it and we have to balance that.”
Yeah, freedom is important, but come on, man! It’s not as important as safety! Has Pelosi ever heard Benjamin Franklin’s famous dictum, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”? If she has, she has long forgotten it, and is now calling upon her countrymen to do just that: give up their liberty for safety. Will they get that safety? Of course! Would the government lie to you?
Pelosi also repeated the common Leftist claim, echoed by Joe Biden, Merrick Garland, and the FBI, among others, that the biggest terror threat the nation faces today is “white supremacy.” “The statistics have been showing us there’s more of a threat of domestic terrorism and violence than international, global terrorism affecting our homeland,” Pelosi said. As is well known, statistics can be made to say virtually anything, and it is unfortunately clear that by “domestic terrorism,” the feds mean people such as parents who are angry about Critical Race Theory and gender delusions being forced upon their children in public schools.
