    President Trump is accused on a minute-by-minute basis of being a tyrant, but his accusers remain free. Nothing has been taken from them, not their property nor their personal liberty. Their rights remain intact in every respect. They can speak without fear of retribution. They can assemble without fear of arrest. They can say and do the most vile and corrupt things, knowing that because the president is not a tyrant, nothing will be done to them for their crusade to erode and destroy our current social and political systems.

    While the president correctly identifies the propagandists in the leftist media as philosophical enemies of the people they work every day to conquer, he doesn’t announce any plans to unilaterally cancel or rescind their rights. He does not threaten to make their words and intentions illegal. He doesn’t threaten to trample the Bill of Rights because they hate him and the country he works to preserve and protect, often from them. He has never once hinted at criminalizing their political opposition, or their open warfare on the Constitution and every civil protection enjoyed by Americans who refuse to subscribe to despotism.

    On the left, however, the seeds are being sown to create a police state in which the politically compliant and complicit will be safe, but the holdouts will be brutally punished. The New York Times, it has been revealed, is about to embark on their latest propaganda project, on the heels of their last foray into pervasive disinformation claiming the president was allied with Russia. Now, the lie will be rampant racism which, if it did exist, wouldn’t need the New York Times telling us about it.

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” ― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

    I was just remarking to my better half a few hours ago about how if so-called white supremacists were tearing up America's streets, all we'd need do is to go outside or for a nice drive to behold the carnage left in their wake. We were also talking about how if the media had never said a word about racism in America over the past eleven or so years, then everything would be okay—no one would be talking about it, save for a few half-petrified academics in some liberal enclave someplace. Americans living "on the ground" in neighborhoods across our great nation know the real score: racism is not an epidemic, and white supremacy is a fairytale bogeyman 99% of living Americans have never encountered in person, nor ever will. Not now. Not in the near future. The American political Right is far from perfect, however, it remains the truest shield against the theft of our rights and freedoms. The American political Left on the other hand is speeding down the highway of enforced oppression of our daily lives and the end of our civilization. Choosing which side to stand with/on/for ought to be a no-brainer. That, or a case of no brains.

    You think Trump could not take these things, should he choose to?

    He can. At least for a while.
    Thus, their rights would not remain intact "in every respect".

    You have freedom of speech. Even if Trump wanted, he cannot do anything. If he could, he would have acted already against the corporate media.

    Can Trump have their FCC license revoked or non-renewed?
