You may not know this, but one of my favorite movies of all time is “The Silence of the Lambs.”
Nobody will watch it with me because I know the lines by heart and have an obnoxious habit of whispering them under my breath as the characters say them.
Huh. I never made the connection before. But maybe that’s why I’m single.
Any old how.
I want you to watch this clip from “The Silence of the Lambs:”
First principles, Clarice. Simplicity. Read Marcus
Aurelius. Of each particular thing, ask what is it in
itself? What is its nature? What does he do, this
man you seek?
He kills women.
No. That is incidental. What is the first and
principle thing he does? What needs does he serve by
Now, with regard to pearl-clutching and sniffy, weepy moaning about “separating families,” you’ll forgive me while I play the part of Hannibal Lecter.
Ask yourself of the Left, what is it in itself? What is its nature? And what does the Left seek?
Do they care about children and families?
No, that is incidental.
What is the first and principle thing the Left seeks? What need do they serve by howling about “separating families?”
The first and principle thing the Left seeks is Power.
This isn’t about Christian values or concern for families.
Not in the least.
It’s about Power.
The Left lost it.
And they will do anything to get it back.
It isn’t about charity; it’s about Power.
Raw, unfettered Power.
These illegal aliens who are detained for violating our laws – and even their children – matter not one bit to the Left.
They are nothing but a tool – a carefully crafted talking point to sway public opinion so that the Left can regain Power.
And when you understand the First Principle at work here, all these weepy, emotional pleas roll right off of you like rain a slicker.
Because it’s nothing but the latest manipulation tactic the Left has seized upon to regain power.
Crying over refugees from terrorist countries didn’t work.
Wringing their hands over guns didn’t work.
And getting choked up over the poor, noble DACA kids didn’t work.
So now they’ve moved on to the next emotional manipulation: Separating illegal alien families.
The fact is these people don’t give a damn about illegal aliens. And they sure as hell don’t care about children.
These are incidental – a means to an end.
And that end is Power.
It isn’t just a wild coincidence that this manufactured drama is happening now just months before the 2018 Midterms.
And it isn’t coincidence that everyone from Hollywood, the news media, and the Democrat Party are burping out the exact same weepy talking points.
They lost power when Donald Trump was elected.
They want it back.
And they will do anything and say anything if they think it will win them Power.
