If New Jersey Republicans want to look around for inspiration, they need look no further than Dan Cirucci. He is a businessman and public relations executive who manages his own blog (http://dancirucci.blogspot.com/).
In less than 700 words, Cirucci reminded us of who Kate Smith was and of her service to America. In the process he exposed the hypocrisy and wrongheadedness of those who have made Smith the latest victim of what has come to be a hate-based campaign to destroy the reputations of dead people who, of course, cannot explain or defend themselves.
Matt Rooney, who published and promoted Dan Cirucci’s column on the Save Jersey website, should be applauded for doing so. He is the founder and editor of the Save Jersey news site. You can read the full Cirucci column there:
What has become known as the “new” Democrats are using ideological “purity” as a means to impose their strict hegemony on society. They have created a parallel legal system in the court of public opinion, that uses shaming, shunning, and economic blackmail to punish “offenders”. They are the authors of an undemocratic, unaccountable, extra-legal “code” that is applied to punish without such constraints as written laws, ethical transparency, logic, or justice.
It appears the goal of these “new” Democrats is to destroy every cultural vestige of the America that freed the world from tyranny and built the world’s greatest economy. They are seeking to replace Mom and Apple Pie, with Ass and Debt. “Get your kink on and run up your credit cards (follow your leaders!)… debt slavery is the future!”
The “new” Democrats are really nothing more than old-style authoritarians, pursuing their long-dead targets with an intensity and passion worthy of Victor Hugo’s Inspector Javert. It was Javert, with his obsession to hunt and punish “offenders”, who mocked the notions of redemption and the duality of man. Today’s “new” Democrats are on no less a suicidal mission because, as Robespierre himself was to learn, nobody is ever pure enough to escape the guillotine.
After all, when racism is extended to include racialism and petty bigotry, who can be exempt from the term “racist”? We are marketed to from birth by the economic, academic, media, entertainment, and government Establishment to think in terms of the silly silos of race, ethnicity, gender, age, and religion. In confusing the terms racist and racialist, every pitch or accommodation based on race becomes itself an act of racism.
So here’s to Dan Cirucci and Matt Rooney for standing up to la Terreur of our modern day. May its time be short.
“If the basis of popular government in peacetime is virtue, the basis of popular government during a revolution is both virtue and terror; virtue, without which terror is baneful; terror, without which virtue is powerless. Terror is nothing more than speedy, severe and inflexible justice; it is thus an emanation of virtue; it is less a principle in itself, than a consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to the most pressing needs of society.”
- Maximilien Robespierre, butcher and murderer, ideological father to the “new” Democrats
