Most things in this world change over time. There is an ebb and flow to life, and if we do not think we are heading in the right direction, we can be comforted that the pendulum will eventually swing back. That ball has been swinging to the Left for what seems like years, and it felt like the whole world was embracing Socialism. We who believe in history know the experiment is not working now, nor did it in the past. It would help if you looked no further than Venezuela and Cuba. A major problem we face, if we hope to change course, is an entire generation of our children have been indoctrinated to believe our country was founded and grew on the backs of Black slaves. These young people have been taught an alternate version of history that our country is evil and only a move towards the Left and a more Socialist form of government will save America. Of course, we on the Right think differently and believe in our history as documented. We recognize that we are not a perfect union, and there are sins in our past. However, we realize those sins must be evaluated and judged in the context of time, and once identified, we take the steps to correct our errors.
A vivid example of this indoctrination is the extremely high number of young people who are turning out to protest against Israel and in favor of Palestinians. They are pulling for the independence of Palestine when there is no such country. They deny the holocaust and the atrocities committed against the Israeli people on October 7. They instead look at the effort to destroy Hamas as an unprovoked attack. These people get a filtered version of history and the news that is created to support the narrative of the elites on the Left. This brainwashing has been done by a complicit group consisting of Academia, elected politicians, and the media. The education system has failed us, the politicians have filled our heads with lies, and the media is willing and able to support them. It is a dangerous cartel, but we on the Right are up for the challenge of righting the ship.
Whenever you discuss trends, there is one factor that is always aligned, and that is the money. Follow the money. In the case of rising conservatism, it is not only money spent on the cause but also money pulled back from the opposing trend line. First, there were the big-money contributors that began notifying their liberal Alma Maters the big checks would no longer be coming. That trend is continuing as donors watching the campus demonstrations calling for the genocide of Israel made some of these individuals tear up their checks. The President of U Penn could not denounce the call for genocide as hate speech when testifying in front of a House Committee. The result was her resignation, but not before $100 Million in potential donations was withdrawn.
Then, the wealthiest man in the world put up a crazy amount of cash to purchase Twitter. Elon Musk saw what bias, censorship, and misinformation were tilting the political landscape unfairly to the Left. His promise was to eliminate censorship and return Twitter, which he renamed “X,” to the Free Speech platform that it had always professed to be. Twitter, like Facebook, had become toxic. Musk stepped up to correct a part of that toxicity. Because of his efforts, X should not have a role in electing our President as it did in 2020.
Tomorrow, in the second installment of this article, I will highlight some of the Conservative candidates worldwide who are surprising the pundits and shocking their Liberal opponents. I hope you will come back and check it out.
