Everyone is familiar (by “everyone” I mean, of course, everyone except the historically and culturally illiterate 80% of our current society *sigh*) with the Jefferson comment,
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is its natural manure.”
May we now add the tears of soi-dissant “liberals” to the nurture of liberty? Oh, and how about the tears of CACAs (members of the Cult of Anthropogenic Climate Alarmism), as well?
As an aside, I am going to refer to the Democrat party as “the party of mass murder, oppression, and pillage” from now on. It’s an accurate description of the normative behavior and the results of typical “progressive” Democrat policies, from at least 1830 on.
