A Republic,

if we can keep it.
  
What part of the phrase "Explicit Contingent Threat of Violence" escapes you? What part of the phrase "Capitulate and Submit, or ELSE" escapes you?
JOYCE VANCE WHITE TWITTERX THREAD
  1. A week ago, Kevin Roberts, the head of the Heritage Foundation & architect of Project 2025, responded to Democrats plans to take on Project 2025. Roberts said, “Project 2025 will not be stopped,” & that Democrats are “more than welcome to try” to stop it.
  2. On Tuesday, Roberts was on Steve Bannon’s War room. It was minus Bannon, of course, because he’s in federal prison. Roberts told a guest host: "We are in the process of the second American Revolution, which will remain bloodless if the left allows it to be."
  3. Is Roberts threatening people who speak out with violence? What if they protest? What if they vote? He’s saying it will get bloody. The more we learn about Project 2025 and the people behind it, the worse it gets.
  4. Roberts’ comments are not something we can just move on from. They must be taken seriously. It’s one thing for conservatives to like some of the policies Trump espouses. It’s an entirely different thing to suggest they’ll use violence against people who don’t agree. Roberts’ words come in a context and that context is Project 2025.
  5. This morning in my newsletter Civil Discourse we continue to look at Project 2025 & Roberts into, one quote from it is below. Come learn the facts for yourself. 
MORE KEVIN ROBERTS
The Declaration of Independence famously asserted the belief of America’s Founders that “all men are created equal” and endowed with God-given rights to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” It’s the last—“the pursuit of Happi- ness”—that is central to America’s heroic experiment in self-government. When the Founders spoke of “pursuit of Happiness,” what they meant might be understood today as in essence “pursuit of Blessedness.” That is, an individual must be free to live as his Creator ordained—to flourish. Our Constitution grants each of us the liberty to do not what we want, but what we ought. This pursuit of the good life is found primarily in family—marriage, children, Thanksgiving dinners, and the like. 
That stuff is single-malt Adrian Vermeule (aged on the truck and served neat), i.e. "Common Good Constitutionalism," wherein Our Moral Betters dictate to us how we ought think and behave.
 
Forcibly, should Kevin Roberts et al deem it necessary.
 
KEVIN ROBERTS, PROJECTION 101
Ultimately, the Left does not believe that all men are created equal—they think they are special. They certainly don’t think all people have an unalienable right to pursue the good life. They think only they themselves have such a right along with a moral responsibility to make decisions for everyone else. They don’t think any citizen, state, business, church, or charity should be allowed any freedom until they first bend the knee. [Foreword, pg 16]
Cue the violins.
 
I guess I'm one of the hated "Left."
 

Bring it (knowing full well you'll delegate to some Proud Boys for the actual dirty work).
