There seems to be a concerted effort on the liberal left to sully the very idea of America herself, casting aside the last 240-some years as a blemish on the North American content.
All one needs is to take a look at the world around us to get an idea of what America means to the fervent, radical left. They’ve been rioting against free speech, for goodness’ sakes. There is little room for explanation there, and even less room for apologies. That alone is indefensible, but we mustn’t forget about the dog whistles and outright calls to violent actions that we’ve witnessed either.
Kathy Griffin shows the world that it’s okay to fantasize about murdering the President…two weeks later a crazed Bernie Sander campaign worker attempts to assassinate the entire GOP baseball team.

Now, in a tight midterm race in Florida, some bizarre narratives are being raised in the immediate vicinity of a democratic candidate.
An organization that has a close relationship with Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum calls for an “end” to “disaster capitalism,” rants against Independence Day and spreads malicious falsehoods about Israel.
Dream Defenders Co-Director Phillip Agnew recently described a long and close working and personal relationship with Gillum and said he considers Gillum to be “part of the movement.” Dream Defenders Action Fund, the electoral and c4 nonprofit arm of Dream Defenders, was part of a progressive coalition that reportedly committed $3.5 million to help Gillum win the Democratic primary against Gwen Graham.
Just how strange are the beliefs of this organization? Pretty out there…
Dream Defenders touts a mission statement in the form of “Freedom Papers” stressing “police and prisons have no place in ‘justice,’” while calling for an “absolute right” to fully-funded free public education.
The “Freedom Papers” advocate textbook socialist principals such as claiming that “by virtue of being born each of us has the absolute right to adequate food, shelter, clothing, water, healthcare, effective public transportation, dignified work, living wages.”
A section on its website about July 4th urges supporters to “acknowledge that the independence being commemorated has not been won for the people of this land.”
Independence Day in America should be utilized “to illuminate the ‘immeasurable distances’ between U.S. citizens and the harm committed in our name around the world,” the organization advocates. “What to the prisoner is the fourth of July?” Dream Defenders asks. “The indigenous people who were here before white settlers?
Will Gillum denounce these purely anti-American values at the core of this organization? Only time will tell.
All we know is that these radical ideas have no place in our nation’s fabric, lest we are looking for a fight.
