The GOP Leadership, Still Playing the Old Game

He said to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

Produce good fruits as evidence of your repentance; and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God can raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. Therefore every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”

Luke 3:7-9

Yesterday I talked about how foolish it was to trust the Democrats on the gun bill. Today at Instapundit my point is made even clearer:

Several Republican senators pressed for a hearing on President Joe Biden’s “Truth Ministry” on Tuesday after new documents revealed that it planned to spy on the public and even included a “domestic terrorism branch” to look into election “misinformation.”

The leadership of the GOP doesn’t seem to understand the people they are dealing with. They still seem to think they are dealing with people from the same culture with the same values who wish to co-exist as equals with whom you can negotiate with in good faith

The evidence of the last few years suggests this is not the case. We are no longer a single culture, we are two cultures and the 2nd culture does not believe in the love of enemies or the idea that the ends do nut justify any means. Furthermore the evidence suggests that while the majority of the those who vote for the left have not reached this point, the activist class, the donor class do and most importantly the “civil servant” bureaucrats either do or are unwilling to oppose them and are willing to destroy any who do and “destroy” also includes the use of violence.

Do you really think people who were unwilling to object to the attempted assassination of a Supreme Court Justice to stand up to these guys?

This isn’t the 1920’s or the 40’s or even 2005. These people have been telling us who they are for a decade. That the leadership in the Senate does not see this is astounding.

Should we give the a chance to as John puts it: “Produce good fruits as evidence of your repentance“. Absolutely. They are still our countrymen, and we still need to live with them.

But until we see concrete evidence of their good faith no deal of any type should go forward.

Closing thought: It is possible that McConnell is playing the Johnson 5D chess agreeing to a “framework” or a “basis” of a deal which will never take place. I am willing to consider this possibility but I’d not bet my rights or the rights of any other American on it.
