TRANSCRIPT Tucker: If only authorities cared anywhere near as much about protecting you and me. Heather MacDonald has spent a lot of time writing on related topics. She is the author of the book, The War on Cops. Were happy to have her on tonight. Heather, as you are so good at doing, give us the overview, what is this about, its not just some random response happening around the country, its part of some larger vision, whats the vision?
Heather MacDonald: Well its a very bizarre moment, Tucker. This is not a good look for government. Its made the biggest policy mistake in the nations history, probably setting us on a depression thats gonna take a generation to recover from. And rather that immediately reverse course as it becomes so apparent how unnecessary this shutdown is, its arresting the law-abiding and letting the criminals go free. This is a way to undermine all remaining legitimacy in government. The left is seizing this opportunity to achieve a host of long-standing policy goals, whether its decriminalization, deincarceration, or getting rid of the SATs. But the point is, this is completely unnecessary. Not only were the lockdowns unnecessary we know that, we knew that going into them, really they effect the elderly and infirm not the rest of us. You dont need to release criminals from prison. You can segregate them, segregate the elderly, if there is a terrible, terrible outbreak, provide stand-up hospitals, hospital ships but what this is really is about is trying to reverse the traditional order of who government protects. And criminalize lawful commercial activity.
Tucker: Why? Why would you want to do that? Its so perverse? Is this I mean clearly this is an effort if you take three steps back to destroy society, because society is defined by order, thats why we have a society, to maintain order. Why would people want to do that?
Heather: I think theres such a deep hatred of American freedom, of prosperity, of capitalism, of law-abiding bourgeois values and the left is seizing this moment. Pelosi has a federal jailbreak provision in the recent stimulus bill that the Democrats have put out. It is truly based on hatred, I think, and also the longer we can go on with these economic shutdowns, the more dependency you create.
Tucker: Well, thats right. Thats exactly right. Because then you have a nation of people waiting for a government check, and thats increases the power of the people issuing the checks. HeatherMacDonald thank you so much for that smart summation, as always. Heather: Thank you.
The Managerial State came into full power.
Cuomo is making the 1,200 schools send him a book report begging to open in September, he said he would review and let them know in August, power hungry SOB.
This is such an absurd statement, but it may actually be correct. The globalist left wants to kill the innocent unborn and disarm productive Americans. Meanwhile, they want to release violent criminals from prison and invite illegals to come here with promises of generous welfare payments. It's hard for sane people to articulate it, but it could be true. The socialists want to protect criminals and parasites while crippling Americans who work hard.
I hope this is a wake up moment for the majority but I doubt it.
“a nation of people waiting for a government check, and thats increases the power of the people issuing the checks. “
If you have a government that can give you everything you want, you have a government that can take everything you have.
It’s the ring of power and the dems are slaves to it’s will.
She is absolutely right!
Send him a few dozen book reports from students about what they are learning from the Rush Revere line of books. He will scan a few and decide to reopen the schools to prevent such things from going any further.
It gives you a chilling feeling when you finally realize that leftist leaders aren’t just stupid, but that they really do want to destroy traditional society. It’s chilling because suddenly everything they do makes perfect sense, and more importantly, because you realize the magnitude of effort is going to take to defeat them.
Why do they do this??? This is what Trump is always saying, these are sick people, sicker than you even think. He knows. I think this is why he ran for president.
It is absolutely true. The left wants to kill babies, the aged, the infirm, the disabled, and more normal Americans. The left wants to drive working Americans into dire poverty, depression, suicide, drug abuse, and welfare dependency. The left exalts robbers, gangsters, drug dealers, and others, whom sane Americans consider criminals, as pillars of the community but shames, criminalizes, and denounces shopkeepers, factory managers, farmers, and small-business owners. The left is trying every day to unleash foreign criminals (whom they consider pillars of the community) on American neighborhoods to prowl the streets with impunity; our president tries to ignore their pleas and to capture, imprison, and deport such criminals.
And the left also wants to impose Communism, to devour the entire private American economy, to keep the churches closed forevermore, to indoctrinate the population to accept their vision of an advanced society.
You don’t have to take my word for it; just read the bills that they introduced, promoted, cosponsored, and even passed in the House of Representatives in this biennium. And vote against their shocking depravity by voting to reelect President Trump and to elect their opponents in the elections this November. Or alternatively, watch and wait until the United States of America turns within just a few years into a colder, vaster, perhaps even worse example of socialism than the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela today.
This virus has definitely pointed out those who'd trade our freedoms for safety. The thing is, safety is an illusion at best - the smart practice caution and carry on.
Wow, YouTube acts fast! Is there a way I can change my link in my OP???
Here’s a link to Heather MacDonald’s twitter, where she posted the video:
We saw it happen in the Soviet Union.
Critics ridicule Atlas Shrugged's villains for being too outlandish, btu Ayn Rand based it on things she saw happening first-hand in the 1920's Soviet Union. If anything, Pelosi and Schumer are making Wesley Mouch and Mr. Thompson look like rational adults.
They did it to establish that they could do it and to finally relegate the Constitution to the Closet of Quaint Memorabilia. In a few years the Constitution, if taught at all, will be that Tyranny enabling instrument of slaveowners meant to cement their Power and to squash the Common People.
arresting the law-abiding and letting the criminals go free.
