Yesterday Human Events (“Leading the Conservative Movement Since 1944”) posted two articles that demonstrate directions conservatives of a certain stripe intend to take in the wake of Barack Obama’s election.
In Rino Season Is Now Open, Ted Nugent writes:
There are really only four things I have a strong aversion to: unloaded guns, dull knives, banjos, and Republicans in Name Only (RINOs).
As the Republican Party begins to retool, rebuild and return to the “less government is best government” conservatism that makes America work, the first thing the GOP needs to do is to lock the RINOs out of the discussion. Heavily armed with an abundance of conservative attitude, my hunting buddies and I will provide security to ensure RINOs are kept downwind from the discussion.
Uncle Ted hereby declares it is open season on RINOs. No bag limits or permits required. Conservative ideas, arguments and votes are the weapons we will use. Hunt them down and shine a blazing light on these RINO turncoat cockroaches.
It’s been years since a journey to the center of Ted Nugent’s mind* has been one on which anyone in his right mind would embark.
Elsewhere on Human Events the inimitable Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily, asks: Is This the End of America?:
For 232 years, America has been the boldest, most successful experiment in personal liberty in the history of the world.
Today, many Americans are wondering whether that experiment has run its course — that we might be on the verge of trading our unique heritage of independent. . . limited constitutional republicanism for interdependent globalism and. . . unlimited central government power. …
It is, indeed, a dark day in America. It’s unfortunate that enough Americans have been seduced into voting for a false political messiah. It is a dangerous time for America.
But, at the end of the day, their policies are going to accomplish two things:
— Expose their own true nature as illiberal authoritarian thugs. …
— Wreck the economy [with their] socialist policies.
In other words, we have an opportunity to watch the Democrats self-destruct over the next four years. We need to be ready to pick up the pieces. . .
Hey, at least they’re both ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work.
*Journey to the Center of the Mind –- A fine album by Ted Nugent’s band, the Amboy Dukes, released in 1968 and featuring his then-incendiary guitar, especially on the title track.
