I’ll be up front with you – I don’t like your group. I won’t go into the reasons here, as they’re obvious and would take too long to list. For that matter, I doubt that if you knew me you would like me, either. I live inside the DC Beltway, and one quick reason why you would dislike me are my views on gay marriage. Ironically, these very same opinions you would view as left wing extremist are the same views that the American left would suggest that I fit in with your group, along with the Nazis or the Klan. This is maddeningly ironic, considering today’s left enjoys the use of Lawfare as much as the folks from Westboro. And it’s not polite to point out that the KKK was started by the Democrats, not to mention that a former Kleagle served as a Democratic member of the US Senate as late as 2010. And the Nazis? You can’t spell “National Socialist German Workers’ Party” without the word “Socialist”. Of course, using the state to abuse certain groups is the natural end for leftism – look no farther than the recent Gestappo tactics used against innocent citizens in Wisconsin. And this brings me to why I’m reaching out to you.
You no doubt have heard about the massive hate campaigns that left wing extremists have launched over the gay marriage issue; Memories Pizza in Indiana is probably the most famous recent example. You’ve probably heard about Washington State’s efforts to destroy the 70 year old grandmother who doesn’t want her flower shop to be forced to participate in a gay wedding. And of course there was the Christian bakery who was driven out of business in 2013. Not content with destroying them once, the forces of tolerance weren’t happy until they destroyed the Klein family again. You probably see where this is going – I’m asking you to use your particular biases to force leftists to cater to you. I’m guessing that you can force gay-owned businesses to print up cakes, sign, and shirts with some of your more colorful opinions. Personally, I don’t like the idea of doing this, but if you play this right and hire some decent PR people to train your folks you can come across as perfectly rational when a reporter approaches you. Simply use phrases like “Equal protection under law” and “Non-discrimination” the same way the left likes to wrap a velvet glove around the iron fist of their state-sanctioned anti-Christian bigotry. And yes, we know it is anti-Christian given how the radical left has chosen to pass on an opportunity to come down on another religion known for anti-gay tendencies.
I’d like to say that this would help the radical left see the stupidity of its ways, but we all know that won’t happen – that’s a topic for another day. So why am I asking this of you? Because every one of their businesses that you attack, every lawyer that they have to hire to defend themselves and every social media storm they generate fighting you takes away resources that would otherwise be used harassing innocent Americans. And don’t try telling me that you wouldn’t enjoy this – your organization is built around confrontation. Would you rather see these leftist bullies trying to ruin he lives of civilians in the culture wars, or would you rather see them try picking on someone who can fight back like you? And you get to do it in a way that is both completely legal and constructive!
Just so there’s no misunderstanding, this is not an attempt to join or even ally with you. I’m not asking this as a personal favor, so there won’t be any favor for me to return to you somewhere down the road. I’m throwing this out to you because we share a common enemy. If you love this country as you claim to, but if you’re not ready to defend it against people who have so much contempt for it that they believe it needs to be “fundamentally transformed“, then you should probably be asking why your group exists in the first place.
I do realize that here is a down side to this – I’m not crazy about the fact that this will earn you some free publicity, and possibly even help you seem reasonable by fighting against the extreme positions of the radical left. But frankly I don’t see any your group ever gaining any real power, where as the radical left has massive and destructive influence in our media, educational system, and in government bureaucracy. As Winston Churchill once said, “If Hitler invaded Hell I would make at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.”
So what do you say? Care to use your evil powers for the forces of good? And who knows, if you play your cards right you might even get the Democrats to put one of your members into Congress for a few decades!
