Identity politics and character assassination. Always a losing strategy.
A South Dakota group recently hosted an event that featured Trevor Loudon as the main speaker. This is actually pretty impressive. I have seen the list of their past speakers and am surprised that they have been able to get these sought after people to come to such a remote area.
Some people attended the meeting and when asked how they had heard about it, they said that they were going past and saw a small group of about 8 protesters. They stopped to ask them what they were protesting. They told the curious passers-by that there were communists inside and they were protesting them. The inquisitors told them thank you, we will go check it out. These kindly protesters recruited several more attendees who will likely attend the next event!
It is wise to know and understand WHAT and WHO you are protesting. I have attached a copy of their event flier below. Just by reading the event flier, you can see that the event was anti-communist. You know, that thing that U.S. Americans have fought and died to defend against for as long as any one of us can remember. Do we have people in Aberdeen that are protesting anti-Communists? If so, why? Is there a group of people that lusts for the day that we are communist, socialist, totalitarian, authoritarian? Do they have a secret crush on Hitler? Or is our education system a big, fat, fail? Not sure which it is, but neither are appetizing.
We rummaged around on the BS Detector (the internet) and found that not only is Mr. Loudon NOT communist, but he is a native born New Zealander with more patriotism for the U.S. in his little finger than all of the leftists combined.
The left's ongoing attack on freedom of speech of anyone who dares to have an opinion different than theirs is really the issue here. Think like us or else! Patriotism will not be tolerated! The swamp is writhing with beasts yet unseen and bubbling with the stench of oppression. I, for one, am grateful that there are people like Trevor with the intestinal fortitude to speak up in spite of the barrage of hate speech that is volleyed at them.
You can get to know more about what Trevor does on his website, facebook page, or youtube channel, just for starters. The links are attached below. After just a quick look, I am confident that we are not dealing with a communist. Rather, this is a person who pays attention to and explores issues in our government and then speaks up about it. We should all be as careful to defend our Constitution and liberties.
I am also told that they are working on another speaker that no one will want to miss. Watch for it. If they can get it arranged, you really will not want to miss it. You will know it when you see it. Crossing my fingers and saying some extra prayers that they can get it done.
Oh yeah, if you do see any actual communists or socialists, please report them. That is something we really can not support.
He describes himself as, "Believing in freedom with responsibility, not freedom from responsibility.
My ideal society is one in which government is slashed to the bone and people are free to reach their potential." In addition to his libertarian economic views he is strongly anti-communist, in a 2006 post to his blog he stated, "Socialism, is in short a manifestation of mental illness or major character deficiency."
South Dakota Together is a pro-Constitution, pro-South Dakota network. We offer a platform for those who others are working to silence. While we do not host speakers or events ourselves, we do share the information that others have given to us so that others may keep up with their events and issues.
