“Burn down the House”.
Yes, in your world, graphic or martial imagery is only to be exploited by the Left.
Oh yes, your side “went there”. Not only was there no outcry about the “violent imagery”, there were claps and cheers of agreement. You framed the imagery. Own it.
“Retreat and Reload”and “Burn down the house”. Get used to it. Don’t think for a moment you’ve earned the right to open your mouth in protest.
Here’s some more martial imagery for you.
Yes, we will burn down the house of Progressive Democrats and lay waste to the entire construct of the welfare state. It will be a long, decades-long battle, but we will prevail because we learned the consequences of not teaching our young ourselves. We delegated that to you, and that was our first mistake. We assumed you were honest brokers, but now we know better.
Carthago delenda est.
I accept that’s the intellectually lazy response, but I have to work with what you can understand.
My preference is more of a “Thucydides account of the no-mercy overthrow of the oligarchs at Corcyra” type of historical reference.
Either way, I am confident you can deduce the “tone”of my rebuttal.
Realizing that you are losing your grip on the public schools, that the youth that propelled the boy-king to victory have abandoned you, that the bitter, blue collar white workers are now Tea Party grandmas and grandpas, that you have lost control of the federal checkbook and the legislative calendar,
now you want to petition for peace?
now you cry out for civility and consensus?
I have a message for you:
Go. To. Hell.
When you retreat back to the comfort and safety of your salon filled with like-minded Hopeium addicts, perhaps you can rouse them from their stupor long enough to send them this message.
We don’t want civility.
We don’t want to “play nice”.
We don’t want to “compromise” with you.
From coffee shops to soccer fields and everywhere in between, the message has been clear.
Draw a line in the sand.
Those who we have sent to Washington this January who yield will be removed from the field and replaced. Make no mistake about it.
We came to you with ideas and a sincere intent to find common ground.
Our emissaries were told,
We tried to engage you and bring alternative solutions to the health care crisis. We met in good faith at Blair House. Our concerns and our emissaries were rudely dismissed.
So, this is our message to you:
The scorched earth policy is in effect.
A court of accounting will be convened.
