If you have not been watching Leah Remini’s remarkable A&E series exposing the cult of Scientology, I suggest you watch every minute of it. This, though, isn’t about the cult, but the fact that Democrats have apparently adapted the scorched earth tactics to destroy anyone who gets in their way. I kept wondering why the Dems had been changing, with nastier and nastier behavior, but did not put two and two together until after viewing several episodes of the expose.
The end justifies the means.
No behavior is off limits.
Lying is perfectly acceptable.
Cheating is fine.
Reputations are to be ruined.
Enemies must be destroyed.
Families of enemies must be destroyed.
No quarter will be given.
They will harass, follow, stalk, and attack.
Then – they will blame the behavior on their victim.
If you have followed the Trump campaign from beginning until the attack on Ivanka’s family on the plane on Thursday, you know every bit of this is provable fact. We’ve been documenting attacks, harassment, threats, and the demonetization of anyone who managed to get in Hillary Clinton’s way since the attacks on Bernie Sanders. I believe Scientology calls it ‘fair game’. For the Democrats, it is now simply politics as usual. Nothing and no one is off-limits.
Never before have family members of candidates been targets in such a vicious manner as have the Trumps. It has reached the point where an artist Ivanka likes is demanding she not exhibit the work she purchased. Eric has a charity that raises millions for St. Jude. He’s being forced to close it. We’re looking at practices more at home in North Korea than the United States. In the United States, we do not destroy the families and fortunes of our political opponents – at least not until now.
The next logical question deals with Democrat connections to Scientology. Well…. They exist. So far, I’m still trying to dig through them. Naturally everything is hidden, cloaked, but we know it exists.
What is going on now is just plain ugly. It is hurting the Democrats, which is fine by me. It is also, though just more than a little bit frightening. This is how freedom dies.
