All Freedom Loving Americans should celebrate this day. All of the American Left (Democrats, BLM, ANTIFA, RINO’s and all who hate freedom) should denounce this day just as they denounce January 6, 2021. This was a day Freedom Loving people said enough is enough. This is a day Freedom Loving people said NO.
It was a Thursday evening in Boston. A massive meeting to discuss what must be done about a new Tea Law, a law that would dictate to the colonists from whom they must purchase their tea, that was about to become the law of the land had just ended. Within a short time, a group of Freedom Loving Americans boarded three ships in the Boston Harbor and threw all the tea onboard those ships into the Boston Harbor. No harm was done to the ships nor to any other merchandise on those ships, only the tea. We celebrate, or we should celebrate this critical event we call the Boston Tea Party.
Other similar tea parties took place throughout the colonies. These people were declaring that they no longer would tolerate a tyrannical government declaring how these people must live their lives and how they must think. The tea parties were the reason the tyrannical government placed a number of tyrannical laws upon the colonists, including the blockade of the Boston Harbor. These actions led to July 4th of 1776, or the day the Continental Congress approved the final draft of the Declaration of Independence.
The price these brave people were willing to pay so they, their families, their friends, and their fellow colonists could live in freedom, could live in a nation where the individual would make their own choices, have their own thoughts, was tremendous both in property and life. Every Freedom Loving American should be grateful to those brave people. The American Left (Democrats, BLM, ANTIFA, RINO’s and all who hate freedom) would say equate December 16, 1773, along with July 4, 1776, and October 19, 1781, to January 6, 2021. They claim these are evil days where those who desire to live free from the dictates and controls of a tyrannical government, where those who oppose having vote counters and not voters determine the representatives of the people to their Constitutional Republic are chosen and should be remembered only in infamy.
The individual liberties that were won because of the events that took place in the 1700’s, are despised and rejected by the American Left. The American Left declares that individuals should not have the freedom to make their own choices and have their own thoughts. They are telling us that government that must determine what is best. They are telling us that the individual must surrender their liberties for what the Left declares to be for the “good of the collective.” This is communism.
Today we are witnessing these freedom haters attempting to reverse what all those brave Boston Patriots did on the evening of December 16th, 1773. The American Left has declared they will do anything they must do to transform the United States from that nation that came into existence as a result of the actions of Freedom Loving people of the 1700’s to a Marxist totalitarian state that controls the lives and thoughts of all.
Don Jans is a national acclaimed author and speaker. He is also a lifelong student of history, with a special emphasis on Russian history. His study of Russian history led to 1917 which led to the study of the teachings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Don has written five books on the topic of Collectivism (Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Progressivism).
Don has been a guest on numerous nationally and regionally broadcast radio programs. He is a weekly guest on a nationally broadcast radio program where he discusses collectivism and how it is impacting the United States, relating current happenings to the collectivist agenda.
Don has spoken to numerous groups across the nation on the topic of who and what is the United States and who and what is collectivism. The collectivist movement has called for a transformation of the United States. What is critical for all to understand is what is the transformation; what are we now and into what will we be transformed.
Don’s speaking approach is the same as his writing approach, and that is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness.
Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom.
