In “Tyranny of the Minority — How the Left Is Destroying America,” bestselling author, keynote speaker, and political commentator Ed Brodow asked a simple question — four years ago: “Can America be saved?”
The chilling question was all but unthinkable not all that long ago — certainly in the aftermath of 9/11, which not only rocked America to its very core; the worst terrorist attack on American soil in history ultimately proved that this country could withstand anything the rest of the world might dare to throw at us.
Now, 20 years later, we are faced with the following question:
Can America be saved To We. More precisely, can freedom-loving, U.S. Constitution-cherishing, patriotic Americans save this country from Within?
We can save America, or do we have to let them destroy America?
“We are engaged in an ideological war for the future of America,” wrote Brodow in 2017. Brodow was right to point out that the Left, which is led by extremist minority interests, is determined on degrading what little remains of American values, despite eight deliberately divisive years under Barack Obama. Every one of Brodow’s bullet points hit the bullseye. These are some of them:
- Expanding government at all costs to individual rights
- Replace free speech by political correctness
- Redistributing income to destroy the American economy
- We are open to Stone Age people wanting to kill us by opening our borders
- Reversing the achievements of the civil rights movement by dividing the nation into racial and ethnic enclaves under the guise of “diversity” and “social justice”
- Forcing college students to accept the Left’s racist agenda
- The radical American Left, along with its top partners, the Democrat Party, and mainstream media want the United States to become Venezuela.
Incidentally, Brodow quotes Fox News “Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin in the book. On Levin’s radio show, he said, in 2017: “We’re fighting for the whole enchilada.” To the point, Levin’s current bestseller, “American Marxism” continues to enjoy tremendous success — for the ominous reasons Levin drives home with example after example.

Levin explains how the core elements of Marxist ideology are now pervasive in American society and culture—from our schools, the press, and corporations, to Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the Biden presidency—and how it is often cloaked in deceptive labels like “progressivism,” “democratic socialism,” “social activism,” and more.
Levin examines the tactics and psychology of these movements. He also studies the anti-American goals of Critical Race Theory, Green New Deal and other anti-American organizations.
Levin exposes the various institutions, intellectuals and scholars leading this revolution and gives us some ideas and answers on how we can confront them.
Levin’s analysis couldn’t be more spot-on, yet we are told on a daily basis by Biden, his smug, clueless White House secretary, his hapless Cabinet members, and the left-wing media that we should admire the Emperor’s New Clothes, while the disastrous Biden presidency — including the radical-left-wing threats to America as we know it — is laid ever more bare on a daily basis.
“The counter-revolution to the American Revolution is in full force. And it can no longer be dismissed or ignored for it is devouring our society and culture, swirling around our everyday lives, and ubiquitous in our politics, schools, media, and entertainment.”
And as he has done since the early days of his nationally syndicated radio show, Levin continues his crusade to rally everyday Americans to defend their liberty — which scares the hell out of the far-left.
Levin is blasted as a far-right extremist (and worse), not only by the Left but also by high-profile “conservatives” — I personally know several of them — and “we” are told that the constitutional expert only makes “things” worse, or even that Mark Levin himself is to blame. These assertions are absurd.
What can Conservatives do to fight radical-leftism?
Instead of sitting by and arguing on social media with random strangers, or bitching among ourselves, how can we stop the ones who want to harm us internally? Certainly, what began with angry parents in Loudoun County in protest of so-called “Critical Race Theory,” and then began spread across America, including protesting mandated vaccines for our kids — and the fundamental issue of whether parents should have a say in what their kids are being taught — was an effective beginning. Similar protests should continue.
J. Allen Cartright (author at The Federalist) wrote a piece titled American Thinker, September, entitled The Rabid Partisanship that is plaguing America: How Conservatives Can Combat It in which he argued that while “conservatives “never voted on it’ or “gave society [our] consent,” “somehow every decision [we] make has political ramifications.”
Or fail to make — my words — such as sitting out an election, or simply bitching and moaning.
After listing a litany of the Left’s transgressions, Cartright got to the gist of his headline. These are examples
On an individual level, conservatives should be tolerant: don’t end friendships over politics, and don’t politicize every topic on God’s green Earth within your social circles. […]On a social level however, conservatives have to exert collective economic power. Businesses that encourage far-left policy must be boycotted till they alter their policies.
Similarly, we should “buycott,” or provide additional economic support, to companies that promote conservative values.
Protest is also important. Liberals have succeeded in influencing corporations to adopt political-motivated policies. Left-wing activists were able to influence Major League Baseball’s All-Star games. Right-wing activists can also pressure Hollywood for a reduction in its engagement with China.
Local politics can also be powerful as evidenced by grassroots protests against critical ace theory. These efforts may be supported by support networks that allow conservative faculty to become more conservative.
We are reluctant to exercise political power because conservatives value individual freedoms over government intervention. A lot of conservatives defend Big Tech’s role in providing an opportunity for Taliban fighters, while banning Donald Trump. This is simply free speech.
Our culture should be an instrument of unity, transcending political divides in order for our country to survive. The political right must use its social, political and economic power to stop the leftist takeover.
This all sounds wonderful, right? Yet — and let’s be honest — how well are we conservatives doing the “unity” thing Within the Republican Party, as a voting bloc What’s the word? We’re sucking at it — bigly — nearly a year after the 2020 election. It was also sucking at us throughout Donald Trump’s presidency. I’ve said this before and I continue to say it because it’s true:
Within the “conservative” world, there exist two primary factions: Never-Trumpers and Always-Trumpers. In the minds of the Never-Trumpers, Donald Trump could never do anything right; he still can’t. These people could cure all cancer by Trump, but Trump would be criticized for making it impossible.
Und the Never-Trumpers
Trump himself put it best during the 2016 primaries when he joked that he “could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue” and his supporters would still vote for him. I’ve seen perfectly intelligent Always-Trumpers twist themselves into pretzels defending, justifying, rationalizing, or outright dismissing everything Trump does, says, or (used to) tweets. Same people who are today obsessed with all things Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, or Kyrsten Sinema, to name a few examples. Do you disagree? Have a look around.
Here’s the thing. Both are filled with crap. Donald Trump cannot always be wrong. But the fighting continues to heat up. Will it continue, through 2024, given that Trump is obviously champing at the bit to announce he’s running?
You get the idea?
As Cartright suggested, without unity, the right — as a splintered voting bloc — will struggle in 2024, regardless of the protestations to the contrary by the “second group,” above. Another point, radical? The Left is insidious. They aren’t going to stop. They’re eating our elephant, one bite at a time.
2024 cannot be compared to 2000. We Do you want to know?We don’t know where it will lead us in 2020. That includes the two Georgia runoff elections, as well — after “someone” called those elections “illegal” and “illegitimate.”
Finally, I won’t waste my time admonishing “those among us so inclined” to move beyond the “stolen election” mantra and look out the front window, but I will suggest doing so “might” not be a bad idea at all.
Are you a fan of arrows and slings? It’s all good.
