America’s Insurrection Against Tyranny by RoseAnn Salanitri
Since January 6, 2021, we have been hearing a lot of cries about a supposed insurrection. That day has been painted as a lawless movement against a civilized constitutional process. The mainstream media and the tyrannical despots illegally occupying what used to be called “the People’s House” have labeled those exercising their constitutional right to protest as hooligans and enemies of the state. Ironically, these are the same despots that labeled out-of-control rioters as peaceful freedom fighters. What a topsy-turvy world we live in. Now it is true that some violence did erupt, but we will never know if it was instigated, since the true causes of the circumstances have been so twisted and obscured by the pitiful pawns of the New World Order that the truth is nearly indiscernible.
It is also true that insurrection can be lawless as well as violent, but insurrection against tyranny can be a true a form of Americanism. It was insurrection against a tyrannical king that gave birth to the nation we now call the United States of America. Our Founders had a clear understanding of the need for insurrection when they wrote in the Declaration of Independence: “…But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object (tyranny) evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.” Therefore, whether or not insurrection against our present tyranny is true Americanism, one must ask: has our government overstepped its constitutional authority and not respected life, our liberties, and our pursuits, as well as a long list of grievances too numerous to list comprehensively?
Before attempting to answer that question, we need to be clear about the terms. According to Webster’s, Americanism can be defined as an attachment or allegiance to the traditions, interests, or ideals of the U.S., or the political principles and practices essential to American culture. It is also defined as devotion to or preference for the U.S. and its institutions. If these definitions lead us to the belief that our devotion to our political principles and practices have been violated, then insurrection against the resultant tyranny is true Americanism .
Webster’s also defines insurrection as an act or instance of rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority or an established government. Webster’s does not distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate government. Those who would define all insurrections as detestable and unjustifiable acts by extension classify the American Revolution as an detestable and unjustifiable and do not take into account the human right to stand against tyranny.
If there are instances when insurrection is justifiable because of tyrannical despots, then we must also be clear about what is a tyrannical despot. A tyrannical despot is a tyrant or ruler with absolute power, or somebody who behaves in a tyrannical way toward other people. In other words, we can interpret this to mean someone who mandates that we take a vaccine that we may not want. Here in these United States, our elected representatives are only to exercise the power given to them by the Constitution. Our Constitution does not give them the power to adjudicate the murder of unborn babies, to tell us that we must be vaccinated or wear masks, nor does it give them the power to dictate what we teach our children, or to infringe upon our right to bear arms, or peacefully assemble. The Constitution also dictates that our government must provide the most perfect voting system possible, as well as defend our borders. These and any other powers not delineated in the Constitution can and should be considered tyrannical power grabs and justify a form of Americanism that has not be required of us since 1776.
