What just happened in Germany is a very HARSH lesson for Hillary and Bernie

There are consequences to decisions made by elected officials. And most often those consequences occur at election time. Only here in America does it seem we reward failure, especially at the presidential level particularly lately. And it’s even more perplexing that a political ideology responsible for failure has the abject gall to take to the streets and protest anyone being in opposition to their ludicrous philosophy of governance. However, name-calling and politically correct intimidation isn’t working in one Western nation.

As reported by Fox8Live, “A nationalist, anti-migration party powered into three German state legislatures in elections Sunday held amid divisions over Chancellor Angela Merkel’s liberal approach to the refugee crisis, projections showed. Merkel’s conservatives lost to center-left rivals in two states they had hoped to win.

The elections in the prosperous southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, neighboring Rhineland-Palatinate and relatively poor Saxony-Anhalt in the ex-communist east were the first major political test since Germany registered nearly 1.1 million people as asylum-seekers last year.

The three-year-old Alternative for Germany, or AfD – which has campaigned against Merkel’s open-borders approach – easily entered all three legislatures, according to projections for ARD and ZDF television based on exit polls and early counting.

They showed AfD winning more than 14 percent of the vote in Baden-Wuerttemberg, around 12 percent in Rhineland-Palatinate and some 24 percent in Saxony-Anhalt, where it finished second.

“We are seeing above all in these elections that voters are turning away in large numbers from the big established parties and voting for our party,” AfD leader Frauke Petry said.

They “expect us finally to be the opposition that there hasn’t been in the German parliament and some state parliaments,” she added.

There were uncomfortable results both for Merkel’s conservative Christian Democratic Union and their partners in the national government, the center-left Social Democrats.

“The democratic center in our country has not become stronger, but smaller, and I think we must all take that seriously,” said Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, the Social Democrats’ leader.”

Many decried those concerned with the mass migration of millions of “refugees” from the Middle East as racists. They went so far as to cast aside blame for the burgeoning and alarming increases in sexual assaults and rapes on these new single, military-aged Muslim males. Instead, the angst was directed to those showing concern and branded them xenophobes and Islamophobes. Well, the common Germans answered back at the ballot box. There’s nothing that should be feared about people who take pride in their country, their nationality.

But when politicians do not put the best interest of their citizens first and take some delusional, sympathetic, politically-driven globalist perspective which placies the safety and security of the citizens at risk, there are consequences.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel made a horrible calculation to open up Germany to millions who were not properly vetted. Her actions demonstrated that for whatever reason, the quality and way of life of the German citizen was not of highest priority. And to make matters worse, it appears the sexual assaults and rapes have been occurring for some time in her country, and were being hidden.

We’ve shared here the stories of what happened in Cologne, Germany when that city’s mayor chided the German women instead of going full bore against the perpetrators. Now Merkel and her political allies, her party, are paying the price for their horrific miscalculation.

There is a true lesson to be learned for the progressive socialist left here in America — those who now own the Democrat Party. The desire to bring to America — and it has happened in secret already — unvetted individuals from the Middle East will cost them with the electorate. The proliferation of sanctuary cities where illegal immigrants are allowed to gather and endanger the lives of Americas is not in keeping with our Constitution — not to mention these municipalities receiving taxpayer funds.

The Obama administration’s idea to pay off Somali refugees in the hotbed of Islamic jihadist recruiting, Minneapolis/St. Paul, to not join ISIS is not a viable policy solution. And the radical progressive left continues to hurl invectives and denigrating comments at those concerned with the sanctity of our sovereign borders.

May I suggest the left realize PDQ their “Rules for Radicals” intimidation tactics no longer work. Just as the people in Germany no longer see Merkel’s party as being willing to serve and protect them, Americans are reaching the same conclusions — quite valid indeed — that the Democrat Party, i.e. the new Socialist Party, is no different.

And the recent confrontations and protests in Chicago as called for by far leftist liberal groups such as Moveon.org, will no longer result in silence and reticence.

Sadly, if there is to be an ideological conflagration in America it shall be enjoined by those patriots no longer willing to acquiesce or surrender to the disciples of Alinsky and Obama. We will not sit back and allow the “fundamental transformation” of America, the place we love and call home. We Constitutional Conservatives are more than willing to meet you, the progressive socialists, on the debate stage and at the ballot box.

Do not portend to believe we shall be bullied by the thuggish tactics you’ve embraced — the consequences are too dire, the loss of this Constitutional Republic. And let me reiterate, y’all aren’t true liberals; you’ve hijacked that descriptor. We are the classical liberals, as defined by the great political theorist John Locke.

You, my friends, are acolytes of Karl Marx and Friederich Engels, along with Saul Alinsky and Barack Obama. You are socialists, progressive socialists, and as Vladimir Lenin stated, “the goal of socialism is communism.” We, the classical liberals, believe in the sovereignty of our borders and the application of the rule of law in this constitutional Republic. This is what we shall defend.

I implore y’all to meet us at the ballot box just as we’ve seen happen in Germany. However, if you choose a more dangerous course of action, you’ll find we will not relent in the quest to preserve this great nation for future generations.

The American left needs to learn from what German Chancellor Angela Merkel is experiencing. It shows you can push and disparage folks for only so long. You can disregard the safety and security of the citizens. But in the end, you will lose. It’s up to you, the progressive socialists, as to the means by which you lose. We prefer it to be peaceful and done by our electoral process, legally without shenanigans. If y’all choose otherwise, then the consequences will be yours to endure.
