Today – indeed, for some years now – any attempt to argue with someone on the political Left has been met with vituperation and accusations of evil motives. “Racist!” “Sexist!” “Xenophobe!” and so forth have become the Left’s standard responses to any sort of disagreement. These pejoratives have lost some of their ability to silence decent Americans – we’re losing our unwillingness to fight quite as swiftly as they’re losing their vestigial credibility – but they haven’t lost their ability to enrage us.
Today, a man who really deserves to be nationally known has laid down a marker:
Nicholas Freitas may be a humble state-level legislator, but in the above he speaks for millions of Americans who have simply had enough and will have no more of being slandered and condemned by persons who:
- Practice the lowest, tawdriest, most deceitful imaginable sort of politics;
- Recognize no standards of conduct to which they will adhere;
- Never accept responsibility for their failures.
Please, please spread this one around!
