PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY AUG. 24, 2020) — With the Republican National Convention opening, and with this being Massachusetts, the Berkshires, with little chance of you finding media that share alternate views, THE PLANET presents this column, first published by July 24, 2020 on Town Hall website.

It discusses a political reality few talk about, some know, and most suspect: That the polarizing political climate has imposed a weird self-censorship on Trump-Pence supporters. They won’t show their support publicly for fear of reprisal.

Yes, we are at that point in America.

As the column suggests, it’s this large number of people — the Masses of the Muzzled — who could make the difference on Nov. 2 and give Trump-Pence four more years.

———- ooo ———-

BY LARRY O’CONNOR

A stunning new poll from the Cato Institute shows 62% of Americans are afraid to openly share their political beliefs with a whopping 77% of Republicans fearing backlash for being “outed” as a Trump-supporting conservative.

No one who has been paying attention to our society should be shocked by this.

From Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson nearly getting doxxed by The New York Times to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees being ostracized by the same sports league he helped enrich to a teacher in Michigan getting fired for saying Donald Trump is our president (which, last time I checked was an undeniable fact), publicly expressing any opinion that goes against the … radical left endangers one’s privacy, career, and even physical well-being.

The culture has been fostered and empowered by intersectional academic elites protected by tenure at well-endowed (and government-funded) universities as well as the arbiters of acceptable behavior who sit behind plexiglass desks in cable news studios high above the streets of Manhattan. Their lessons have been carefully and painfully taught to all Americans. If you’re not in-line with the woke minority with the loudest voices, better stay quiet if you know what’s good for you.

One question from the Cato poll is most relevant to the lesson we’ve all had to learn:  “Would you support or oppose firing a business executive from their job if it became known that they privately donated money to Republican Donald Trump’s re-election campaign for president?”

Forty-two percent of Democrats and 50% of liberals answered “Yes.”

With a liberal in America, you’ve got a 50/50 shot of being fired if it’s discovered you donated to the re-election of the president of the United States. A coin-flip. Who wants to take those chances?

They’ll destroy anyone in their way. And they’ll even lie to do it.

They attacked a 16-year-old boy whose only sin was to wear a MAGA hat while attending a march to protect unborn babies. But, that was enough for the inquisition to condemn him. If they could lie to destroy his life, you think they’ll hesitate to use your comment on a Facebook post to destroy yours?

Of course, they will. It’s what they do. And they think it’s how they will win.

But they’re wrong.

At least, for now, they’re wrong.

You see, we don’t have to win arguments on Twitter. We don’t need to dominate someone’s Facebook page. We don’t need to prove our point in the lunchroom at work. We don’t have to one-up our liberal brother-in-law at the dinner table.

We just need to vote.

We just need to keep our heads down, smile as they scream and rant, and try to burn down their own failed Democrat-run cities, and vote.

We don’t need to constantly argue for funding our cops; we just need to elect representatives who are paid to make that argument for us.

We don’t need to rail against Nancy Pelosi’s lies and corruption; we just need to elect enough Republicans to Congress to de-fang her once and for all.

We don’t need to convince anyone about the dangers of a Biden administration populated by Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Ilhan Omar; we just need to re-elect Donald Trump, who is not afraid to make these arguments for us.

He is unafraid. He’s been there. They call him “Hitler” on a regular basis and he keeps fighting. Let him. Let him fight on your behalf as long as you are there for him in November.

You are not the problem.

They are.

They should be embarrassed to voice their destructive ideologies in a country that only allows it due to the sacrifice of brave men and women like you who fought for these lunatics’ right to scream in the streets in the first place.

But this is the world we live in today. Be proud that you are in the silent 77% of this country who believe in the founding principles and values of this great nation but are too intimidated to speak that truth out loud. Own it. And show up in November.

The mob is not winning by keeping you silent and resolved.

The mob only wins if they actually win.

Wow, what a load of crap. Great show on CCN tonight with Fareed Zakaria debunking all of Trump’s stupid conspiracy theories and the idiots who follow them.

I get why rich people vote for Trump, and I get why stupid, ignorant people vote for Trump,but I don’t get why generally intelligent , decent, hard working middle class people people vote for Trump. He could care less about them. Even Trump’s sister is now on tape saying it.

Are we suggesting that Trump supporters are not capable of researching both candidates despite the incredible amount of information coming from all angles?
And are we suggesting that Biden supporters do not suffer backlash for supporting their candidate?
This column alone is loaded with daily Trump accolades and Biden trashing. Fox news is the number one news station and that is pretty much all they do 24/7.
Dan could you please list your favorite five things Trump has done for America?

We have researched and President Trump is by far the superior candidate. Biden is surrounding himself with and taking the advice of people who absolutely do not care for the people of this country. This country is full of very bad people according to the far left and big government can fix that problem. It’s all about power for the far left. They want total government control over the country while President Trump values our freedoms such as the right to bear arms, the right to worship, the right to private property, and freedom of speech. This election is about choosing freedom.

Biden:

But as FactCheck pointed out, Herbert Hoover was president during the 1929 Wall Street Crash and television didn’t exist.

Harris:

Senate leader of the witch hunt, on SCOTUS justice Bret Kavanaugh.

That is a very true warning Dan that they will not win, at least not for now. These upcoming generations have been brainwashed to believe in Marxism and that government control is good. That big government will solve all of our problems and they do not see any danger in that because they have been taught to trust in giving away their power so big government can make everything fair and equal. That mindset is creating problems now and will create even bigger problems in the not so distant future unless people realize the importance of freedom.

That is right! They were the ones that crucified Christ the first time, but YOU probably knew that just going by the type of people they are. AND, why would they be doing that just before the election? HUH???

And there are a lot of them out there who will do so.

Because of Tyers secrecy handling taxpayer money she has become the least trusted person in Pittsfield. I am even suspicious when she speaks of other city organizations and projects. She has cast a shadow of mistrust over the whole city.

Can there be an honest reason to hide where taxpayer money is spent and if so what is it? And Marchetti is just as bad for not releasing it himself. He seems complicit in a cover up. What are his reasons for not releasing where taxpayer money is spent?

Since covid cases have dropped substantially and the CDC has now withdrawn the 14 day quarantine rule for travellers & those exposed to the virus, why is Gov. Baker still implementing the 14 day quarantine? Why are businesses still not allowed to fully open? Why hasn’t the state removed the lockdown rules? And why is the city of Pittsfield only opening City Hall two mornings a week? There are no covid victims in the county’s two hospitals!

Trump is a wanna be dictator who could give a damn about working class people and who is only interested in monetizing the systems of government to benefit himself and his rich pals. He is racist, sexist, dishonest, ignorant and yes, treasonous. Shame on the Republicans who do not stand up to him, I’m looking at you McConnell. Mitt Romney at least has some courage.

Even Harris has described Biden as “racist’, but everyone who they/D-s don’t agree with are “racist, et al…” I can say one thing about Democrat candidates, there are are no patriots among them.

I have a friend who holds an elected office in the GOP stronghold state of South Carolina. South Carolina is home to Republican icons, Lindsey Graham, Trey Gowdy, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Henry McMaster, et al. This elected politician is a retired state trooper. He is somewhat perplexed as an aide to Senator Graham told him that Government pensions and OPEBs are part of the left’s socialism platform along with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Unemployment Benefits, SNAP benefits, FDIC protection and that too much tax payer money is being spent on these “Socialistic ” programs and they will be cut back. The government pensions and OPEB got him thinking as it struck home and he didn’t think of these programs as socialism, but as entitlements. WTH ???

Nancy Pelosi has gone totally communist. She is now calling President Trump an enemy of the state just like they do in Russia and China when anyone disagree with state run propaganda. These people have all gone off the deep end for Marxism/Communism and if they win in November they will shut down any voices that disagree with them. They are systematically removing any opposition to themselves on radio stations and television shows and just like in China and Russia, we will all become enemies of the state if we disagree with their radical agenda. These people must be stopped and this goes far beyond President Trump. These people want total power and want to do away with any opposing party.

Even better, of course, is the Left paying and raising money (e.g., Soros, Harris) to get these POS out of jail.

The change these politicians and people behind BLM could make if they used their energy to actually help the black community instead of egging on burning down and reparations looting the community they live
in.

Oh, Another real disgusting part about these businesses and neighborhoods being burned to the ground across the country, is they are getting bills for cleaning up the ruble from the city along with property tax, sales tax bills etc..

This is the best column I have ever read by Dan Valenti. Point by point he nailed it spot on. These Liberal seeds were planted many years ago an example is our Universities as he stated .Why is Public Radio strictly Loony Left and not Rational Right? I don’t know how many George Soros types are out there but their mission is to destroy the way Americans are used to living. Is there anyone over 50 who ever thought low intelligence anti-Americans like the Squad would be in the position to affect the American way of life. The Leftists in power are Elitist millionaires that somehow from their gated mansions get the poor to believe they have their back. Cities are burning but they all happen to be run by Democrats. Wake up America Donald Trump is not perfect but the Bernie Sanders coalition are Socialists.

When you don’t pay attention you end up paying, sometimes with your life.

Would you call him that to his face? This is the beauty of Planet Valenti. We can say anything we want about anybody and never have to be accountable. You know nothing about Krok other than what you read in the newspaper that you despise. As to my question, would you say it to his face?

Most of social media is an echo chamber. If your friends and relatives think like you then you mirror back those beliefs to them. If your views are a minority you get shouted down. I am glad that people have different views on this blog and are allowed to talk about them. It’s what makes being on here interesting.
Trump is an authentic politician for good and bad. If we have Biden because Obama thought he was the best candidate to win then that is again depressing. Neither convention felt like a place I would feel comfortable.

I’ll agree it’s sad that Biden was the best the Democrats could do, but I think a head of cauliflower would outperform Trump. As much as I liked Reagan, he was not great mentally in his second term and was just shy of 78 when his term ended. Let’s face it, 78 or even 74 is a pretty advanced age to be taking the reigns of arguably the most important job in the world.

I get the feeling you would be most comfortable in a place that does’t require much thinking. I don’t think that you not feeling at home is a knock on either convention.
