But what many of those same Americans may not realize is that soon, very soon, they're going to be directly victimized by the two-tiered system of justice that has rapidly taken shape since Donald Trump had the bad taste to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
"What do Kyle Rittenhouse, Donald Trump, Nick Sandmann, Mark Houck, Sarah Comrie (the so-called 'Bike Karen') and Daniel Penny all have in common? All of them are victims of the 'two-tiered justice system' and the leftist media court of public opinion," wrote The Daily Caller opinion editor Michele Gama Sosa last week.
She says we are now part of a new criminal class that the left has covertly created.
Conservatives frequently express their dissatisfaction with what they perceive as a double standard, especially considering that none of the individuals involved have been charged with any criminal offenses. Attorney General Merrick Garland's Justice Department, along with its local affiliates, is often seen as emblematic of this perceived persecution, which is amplified by the support of the corporate press, she noted.
But screaming "two-tiered justice system" at the top of our lungs "misses the point," she adds.
"There is no 'double standard' — only a hierarchy without you in it. Their persecution of everyone from political opponents to everyday people is designed to remind you that they are the elite and you exist at their pleasure," Gama Sosa continued in her spot-on analysis.
To enforce this new hierarchy, Garland and his allies have created a new category of criminal straight out of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917: the “political criminal.”
Soviet dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn wrote in Gulag Archipelago (pg. 505 if you’re interested) that in the early days of the USSR, thieves and murderers were often treated with kid gloves. They could be rehabilitated, the party line went, and they were often allowed to commit crime if they targeted the right people.
In contrast, individuals deemed as "political criminals," either directly or by association, faced a vastly different fate. They were often sentenced to the GULAG, a system of labor camps. What might be surprising is that opposing the state could be considered a crime for various reasons, such as having more wealth than one's neighbor, belonging to a specific ethnic group, practicing Christianity, or simply existing, Gama Sosa continued.
"Such people were referred to as 'terrorists.' Sound familiar with Joe Biden and the media constantly harping about 'white supremacist, ultra-MAGA terrorism?' That label should terrify you," she adds.
"We’ve seen how we deal with terrorism abroad. We lock them up, don’t give them any due process, or just kill them. That is what Biden and co. are implying they want for you, the political terrorist," the op-ed editor noted further, pointing out:
In practice, this relationship means that Kyle Rittenhouse was supposed to let his attackers bash his head in. They supported our corrupt system and held all the right views. Kyle Rittenhouse, regardless of his political views, was wrong for opposing them, making him an enemy of the state.
Donald Trump was supposed to roll over and surrender the presidency without a fight. His crime was opposing the Swamp. Same with Daniel Penny. Jordan Neely was part of the left’s strategy to foment chaos. He had every right to be a criminal. Penny had no right to stop his activities as far as Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is concerned.
Don’t want your kids to be sexualized in schools and raped down the road? That makes you a terrorist too. You don’t even have the right to defend your own children.
"Meanwhile, violent criminals get a pass every time. They are victims of society, liberals say. They can be rehabilitated if only we give a little more money to the system – usually money coming from the political enemies they persecute," she wrote.
The bottom line is this: The Democratic left isn't "stupid," "goofy," or "simply wrong" when it comes to implementing the policies they are putting in place. They are designed to cause chaos, and the chaos is necessary to usher in the Marxist revolution they seek to impose.
That's what's at stake: The very survival of our republic as it was founded. So vote accordingly (and do make sure you vote because the left will).
Now you know why Democrats installed a mindless geriatric patient in the White House and defeated Trump.
