🐴Four Hobby Horses of the Apocalypse

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in the bible are Conquest, War, Famine, and Death, respectively. These are not the horsemen I want to talk about. I want to talk about the Four Hobby Horses of the Apocalypse constantly threatened by the Democrat Party.

The Four Hobby Horses of the Left are: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, pro-life people and the rule of law. Those are the things they fear nearly as much as the thought of an honest and unbiased media.

Did you ever notice that freedom of speech, which is an easy concept and guaranteed by the Constitution, is constantly being watered down? Every time it is diminished we are made less free.  It becomes not freedom of speech so much as rationed speech. A very different thing.

Media, which screams bloody murder if Sarah Huckabee Sanders doesn’t call on them as  a violent attack on their 1st Amendment rights, doesn’t seem to care much when people they don’t agree with are silenced.

Keep the words below in mind because it is true of many on the left.

“The left pretends to love free speech until you say something they disagree with.” ~ Charlie Kirk

If you don’t think the above is true you haven’t been paying attention.

Free speech at our universities? That’s laughable.

There’s No Free Speech Crisis on Campus, So Please Shut Up About It

For the last year or so, columnists have been using anecdotes to support extremely broad claims about the state of free speech on campus. The argument typically goes something like this: Today’s radical college “leftists” employ the very fascistic tactics they decry. They shout down speakers they don’t agree with and sometimes they use violence in an attempt to prevent them from giving speeches.

They want trigger warnings on classic novels and safe spaces to shield them from hatred. This kind of behavior is a direct assault on free speech, and if we do not stop these misguided children, then our obviously well-functioning democratic republic will descend into a totalitarian state, Trump will be President forever, our brains will rot, students will become the teachers, discourse will dissolve, and writers who use bad evidence to support their claims will be elevated to the esteemed offices of the New York Times Opinion Page. And how ironic. How truly sad.

College campuses used to be fortresses for free speech. But now they’re free speech murder-holes.

Perhaps the writer above expresses himself more forcefully than I might – basically I agree. I don’t agree with the “shut up about it” part because if you are telling someone to “shut up” you are basically denying them their right to free speech.

Free speech is the right of every American – guaranteed by our constitution. Which means idiots have as much right to it as intelligent people.

Next to Freedom of Speech the left hates Freedom of Religion the most. They will cuddle up to a murderous Muslim and excoriate a Christian. Why have they come to hate Christians so much?

They seem to hate this country too. This horrible racist, misogynist country that is now governed by a horrible dictator who has taken all their freedom away.

Yet they want to allow illegals to come and stay in this horrible country. Why do they hate illegals?

Christians were persecuted, in my opinion, through much of the Obama Administration. His administration wanted to force Catholic Institutions to provide condoms and abortions. Fighting with the Little Sisters of the Poor isn’t a good look for any administration.

Didn’t hear much from his administration about forcing Muslims to serve bacon and alcohol.  Obama is gone but the mind-set lives on.

I’ve often wondered if the hostility from the younger generation towards Christianity isn’t all the “thou shall nots”.  Many of them have never been told they shall not about anything.

The Media is ready to attack and demean Christians at every opportunity. Take this bit:

MSNBC Host Mocks Trump’s New Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow for Faith in ‘God’s Will’

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle said that “the challenge” for Kudlow is that “in the position he’s in now he has to stand there and represent real data.”

“The fear is that he may stand there and represent the president in the face of real data,” her co-host Ali Velshi chimed in.

“Well, as Larry Kudlow says, ‘It’s God’s will,’” Ruhle said, lifting up her coffee mug with a smirk.

Kudlow has publicly shared his story of finding a way out of substance abuse and addiction and converting to Roman Catholicism in 1997. He used the phrase God’s will in discussing his difficult decision to leave CNBC.

The real religion on the left it is abortion.

The left not only wants abortion to be legal right up to and including the time when a baby can live outside the womb but they want the rest of us to pay for their insane infanticide.

UCLA Student Government Hosts Phone-Bank Session Pushing For Free Abortions On Campus

The UCLA student government recently hosted a phone-banking session for over 20 students to urge legislators to vote for a bill requiring public colleges in the state to provide free abortions on campus.

Now granted this is in California where morals go to die, but don’t think this same mindset isn’t  prevalent on campuses across the nation. The lefties on campus have managed over the years to pervert your children and get you to pay for it. What a two-fer that was.

Hearing someone dear to you spout propaganda about their “reproductive rights” is an abomination. I know.


  • Based on available state-level data, approximately 893,000 abortions took place in the United States in 2016—down from approximately 914,000 abortions in 2015.
  • In 2014, an estimated 926,240 abortions took place in the United States—down from 1.06 million in 2011, 1.21 million abortions in 2008, 1.2 million in 2005, 1.29 million in 2002, 1.31 million in 2000 and 1.36 million in 1996. From 1973 through 2011, nearly 53 million legal abortions occurred in the U.S (AGI).
  • In 2014, approximately 19% of U.S. pregnancies (excluding spontaneous miscarriages) ended in abortion.1
  • According to the United Nations’ 2013 report, only nine countries in the world have a higher reported abortion rate than the United States. They are: Bulgaria, Cuba, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, Sweden, and Ukraine.*


Oh and apologies to the good people in California, those that haven’t left yet, but you are so far out numbered that I doubt decency is even possible in your state anymore.

So finally we come to the rule of law.  But only when it’s convenient.

“The rule of law, at its most basic, means that the law applies to everyone equally. It means that no one is above the law. It is also popularly understood as “a government of law, not of men.” And, while the law may be harsh, it is the law.”

In 1780, John Adams enshrined this principle in the Massachusetts Constitution by seeking to establish “a government of laws and not of men.

The following is from back in 2012 but I find it still valid in what it says today. A country where some men decide that Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary States are legal is not a nation of law. It is lawless.

Whatever happened to a ‘government of laws, not of men’?

Irascible old John Adams enshrined the concept of “a government of laws, not of men,” in the 1780 Massachusetts state constitution, but his words expressed a firm conviction held throughout the 13 colonies in the years leading to the American Revolution.

It was a powerful idea because it conveyed a fundamental truth: Government should be based on clearly written laws, consented to by those to be governed by them, and not on the unpredictable will of one man or even a few men.

So why do we allow Washington politicians not only to get away with ignoring the law but with continually replacing it with the will of one man called “Mr. President” or a few men called “bureaucrats”?

That’s my rant for the day.

I hope you have a nice day and don’t have to deal too often with people who find common decency a difficult concept. That depresses me and ruins my day. I wonder if blinders and earplugs would help.

This is, as always, an
