Todd Starnes calls on ‘gun-toting, Bible-clinging patriots to rise up
The new unemployment numbers are out, and there’s really no way to butter this biscuit, folks. Unless America’s economic engine is restarted, we will be plunged into a Great Depression.
Since the global pandemic hit our shores, more than 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits.
And the only way to stop this economic death spiral is for every freedom-loving citizen to embrace their constitutional rights, take to the streets and demand that their state leaders reopen this nation.
As I wrote in “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” the time has come for gun-toting, Bible-clinging patriots to rise up with a mighty voice and declare that this great American experiment is worth saving.
It’s hard to fathom what our country has been through over the past few months. The nation was shut down based on a virus death-count that thankfully proved not to be accurate.
Our diners and department stores were shuttered based on that data. Our baseball fields and church houses were closed. Our civil liberties have been stripped away because of what the medical experts told our government leaders.
The mainstream media did their part by fomenting national hysteria as part of a sick and twisted narrative that the nation was in the throes of a dystopian apocalyptic reality show.
On Thursday President Trump unveiled his plan to open up American again – a plan that has strong support across the country. And while there are glimmers of hope that a number of the states will soon be reopening for business, many Democratic leaders are balking.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio even suggested during a Fox News Channel interview with Bill Hemmer that the Big Apple may not reopen until September.
Let me be perfectly frank: Would that happen, the city as we know it will be destroyed. Small businesses will not be able to survive. Crime will surge to catastrophic levels.
I understand why these Democrat overlords are hesitant to relinquish their control. They have tasted of the power to decide who gets to plant a garden and who gets to surf in the ocean.
