We hear a great deal about the BDS movement. Its malevolent goal is to delegitimize Israel and destroy the country’s economy.
Here in our own United States, there is an equally malevolent and growing movement to delegitimize our most valued institutions, our patriotism, our history, our monuments, our language, our laws, our legislature, our freedoms of speech and thought and assembly, our national culture, and our sovereignty, ALL OF IT!
Institutions and individuals are sanctioned and boycotted for perceived offenses against gender and race.
Our grammar is altered to erase gender.
Our immigration laws and national security are challenged by demanding open borders and offering sanctuary to those who break the laws.
Our history is rewritten to paint America as a racist and evil society instead of a beacon of democracy.
These attacks and libels used to germinate in academia and mainstream liberal media. But now they are prevalent in entertainment, social media and politics as well. As columns on education demonstrate, they even appear in early childhood education.
The late Jeanne Kirkpatrick, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, lamented the “blame America first” crowd. The Presidency of Ronald Reagan seemed to quell the impulse to bash and libel our nation. However, behind the scenes “community organizers” were plotting the revival of the radical Left which is back with a vengeance.
In their effort to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump, even legislators and candidates now openly slander and libel our nation.
This all is leading to very dark days in American history.
