Do We Want To Live Under Regressives’ Eyes?

” I don’t want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people. They never have been from the beginning of our country, and they are not now. Our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.”

Right-wing strategist Paul Weyrich is the co-founder of The Moral Majority and The Heritage Foundation.

Those famous words were spoken by Weyrich in 1980. Even back then the GOPs informed us what they were all about. Weyrich died in November 2008. It gives me great pleasure knowing that he lived long enough to witness the election of Barack Obama becoming the 1st Black man elected to the Presidency of the United States.

Fast forward to 2022. Regressives have been very explicit in their views of Non-White people, LGBTQs, women, and other marginalized groups attaining positions of power. Sadly & pathetically some members of these same marginalized groups embrace Regressives with their racist/bigoted/misogynistic ideologies. I am not a psychiatrist or psychologist, but I have heard them say when being interviewed that those folks are self-hating, suffer from Stockholm Syndrome or they benefit somehow. I tend to believe it is more self-hatred or benefitting. more than anything else.

A long time ago when I was in my upper 20s, I was enlightened by an elderly fellow Communication Worker of America (CWA) union local union officer that racist/bigoted GOPs delighted in feigning ignorance and watching Progressives strain to find ways to assist them in trying to understand our views. Through the years, I have forgotten this advice from time to time. Now that I am 66 years old, I am putting this wise advice into practice more and more.

In past Chuck’s Chat articles, I predicted that GOPs would somehow try to get even with USA citizens for electing/re-electing President Barack Obama. Real American History events of the past that GOPs are trying to erase have shown us. . Regressive GOPs used the weapons of racism & bigotry to put Mango Mussolini in office. None of what they are doing in present times is surprising to me, including the January 6th Domestic terrorist attack at the Capitol and its aftermath. My mother told me a long time ago that there are folks who if they can’t rule, will ruin.

Under Regressives’ eyes, they have made it crystal clear that if you are not a wealthy, White, Regressive Heterosexual, male, you do not deserve full equality and need to be ruled over by their draconian laws.

Fortunately, all is not lost, Progressive-minded folks. We do have the luxury of not being neutral. We have the luxury of voting in ALL elections whether it be national, state, or local. REAL We do have the power not to pay attention to those propaganda entertainment shows/hosts posing as REAL news and journalists, along with elected Regressiuve politicians. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are in cemeteries because of their lying, trifling asses. We must do our part. If you claim to be “woke” then the above quote from the late Regressive Paul Weyrich tells you everything you need to know from stopping Regressive racist & bigoted GOPs from attaining power.
