Can Democrats Purge GOP ‘Insurrectionists’? | The American Spectator | USA News and PoliticsThe American Spectator | USA News and Politics

MenuCan Democrats Purge GOP ‘Insurrectionists’?No, but their obvious desire to do so is a threat to the republic.Editor's PicksSign Up to receiveHot OffThe Pressf you aren’t worried about the heavy-handed and histrionic reaction by the Democrats to the recent “insurrection” at the Capitol, including the farcical second impeachment of President Trump and the increasingly irresponsible use of words like “seditious” and “treasonous” to describe Republicans, you should be. Every authoritarian seizure of power since the Athenian coup of 411 BC by a small cadre of oligarchs was ostensibly meant...

MenuOnly Free Thought Can Produce UnitySocial cohesion must be maintained organically, not by force.Editor's PicksSign Up to receiveHot OffThe Pressrofessor Marvin Fox once said to a graduate philosophy class, “God doesn’t command us to breathe.” His point was that there is no need to command people to do something they will do anyway. Instead, a commandment directs us to difficult tasks that many would likely evade doing.Thus, when Leviticus commands us to love our neighbor, it is not mainly about loving people who are obviously lovable. Everyone wants to be close to such people. It is as...

The wildly exaggerated “storming of the Capitol,” like the huge protest itself, was caused by the belief — shared by countless millions of Americans — that the voters no longer have any meaningful influence over the Washington establishment.
