Probably outnumbered 20 to 1, or more, a conservative organization here in the Tar Heel State has taken up arms and entered the field to do battle with the overwhelming number of noisy, nasty Left-Wing political groups operating subversively in the State. They lurk from webs of deceit interconnected with spider-like operatives infiltrating all of our institutions. They have been exposed in a program called “Mapping the Left” (nccivitas.org).
I call them statists. Their goal is to get total control of government so they can officially steal citizen’s wealth and distribute it to their voting blocs—the tactics they use come out of the late Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” They have no honorable principles; any means justifies the goal. They are deceitful, dishonest, and, sometimes, violent. They won’t compromise on any issue. They hate anyone who opposes them, and regard us as enemies.
In case readers think I’m overstating this situation, I never thought I would write something like this about other (so-called) Americans. During my 84 years in America, as a native citizen, I’m stunned that this is reality in the republic that I grew up to appreciate and honor. Our family has lived and fought for this country since the 1600s.
Some of my ancestors came from Europe on the Mayflower. Some fought in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. My parents worked in a World War II aviation factory. I enlisted in the U. S. Army during the Korean War. My brother served in Korea after the war. Our biggest fears were from foreign enemies—now we have more to fear from internal forces hostile to our republic, our culture and our State.
One organization in North Carolina is fighting back.
The Civitas Institute Center for Law and Freedom recently won legal motions in a State superior court to prevent Josh Stein, the State’s attorney general, from illegally distributing money to radical environmentalist groups. He and Gov. Roy Cooper before him have been handing out millions of dollars from State “settlement” money, earmarked for education, to support these subversive Leftist cabals for years.
Ironically, Leftist groups like to call themselves “progressive”—they are anything but. In addition to being corrupt, they like status quo and even regressive policies that favor their Marxist views. They hate the majority of our State legislators because they have made progress in returning common sense and fiscal sanity to North Carolina government.
Civitas President Col. Francis De Luca writes, we can’t “allow the liberals to carry out their favored projects of encouraging vote fraud, increasing our citizens’ dependence on government, and making bureaucracy less accountable to the people.”
These Leftist projects—and many others— counter conservative principles of limited government, following the law and using common sense.
Civitas pledges to “do everything in our power to resist the frenzied rhetoric, radical politics, and divisive tactics coming from the Left.”
But they can’t beat the Loony Left without the help of the many conservative North Carolinians. They need and deserve our support.
