LESSONS IN LOGIC: When Slippery Slope Is Not A Fallacy

Dear Reader,

It is way past time we all understood that ‘The Slippery Slope’ is not always a fallacy.  Sometimes, it is a very real threat.  Case in point: the Patriot Act has come back to bite many of us — just like we were warned it would.

Slippery Slope‘ can be a fallacy, but it doesn’t have to be.  Some times, the threat is very real. In those cases, Slippery Slope is not only valid, it is a warranted warning.  The Patriot Act is the perfect example.  After the 9/11 attacks, few people questioned the broad and sweeping powers granted to the government by the Patriot Act.  Fewer still bothered to speak out against the stripping of any and all Constitutional protections for anyone who might find themselves labeled a ‘terrorist.’

Fast forward twenty years and look at what has happened: a ‘terrorist’ is no longer someone who attacks the United States, it isn’t even someone who uses terror to further their political agenda.  No, today, a terrorist is anyone who dares to even question those who have seized control over this nation.  Since this is primarily the white, Christian heterosexual, ‘They’ label whites as terrorists. But this is the cloaking of evil behind the veil of opposing racism: in this case, ‘white supremacism,’ or ‘white nationalism.’ Sadly, the People go right along with it. They either tell themselves they are not the ‘terrorists’ the government is speaking about or they stay silent for fear of speaking up and being labeled a racist terrorist for their troubles. These people never even stop to realize that the same evil actors declaring whites to be terrorists simply because they are white are the same evil actors telling them that all whites are racists simply because they are white. There is no escaping this sort of thinking: you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t, but this is by design — so you will remain in the shadows, cowering in fear and posing no threat to their power.

This nation is currently witnessing the danger of ‘Slippery Slope:’ first, you allow a clear violation of principle because of some perceived threat or emergency that justifies lawlessness on an emotional level, then, when things get out of control, that same fear forces you to remain silent as more and more innocent people are devoured by the growing evil you unleashed. And yes, you unleashed — as did I. Do not think you are innocent in this, because you’re not. In a nominally free nation such as this, to sit idly by and watch this sort of evil metastasize and grow while doing nothing for fear of what might happen to you is to give silent support to that evil. No, I’m afraid that, unless we have been jailed or murdered by this growing evil for having stood against it, we are guilty of supporting it.

In this specific case, the nation agreed that the threat of Islamic terrorism justified the clear violations of both our Constitution and foundational principles as espoused in the Declaration of Independence.  We comforted ourselves by saying it was justified by the threat, and by thinking that it would never go any farther than the Muslims.  Well, today, it has become painfully clear that it has not only grown, but it has gotten totally out of hand. A terrorist is now defined as anyone and everyone who the American Left deems to be a threat to its power.   Still, many people will continue to cower in the shadows and tell themselves that the government’s definition of terrorism will never include them.

Dear Reader, if you are one of those who believes you are magically exempt from this evil, you do not understand the threat. There is a very well known and absolutely brilliant illustration of the slippery slope down which the United States has fallen, and by which it is now being devoured.  Here, I’ll remind you of how it goes:

  1. The trade unionists and socialists are spearheaded by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Queen Bee of the coup that overthrew our Republic last November. Doubtful anything will happen to upset her hive unless the mounting evidence stacking against her exposing her complicity in the January 6th “insurrection” may eventually test the integrity of our judicial system and bring about God’s Justice. Domestic terrorism needs to be defined for what, exactly, it truly is, not what Satan’s minions want us to think it is.

    Prominent American Patriot Attorney Sidney Powell and her team of attorneys representing Couy Griffin report that,

    “On Monday, August 9, Department of Justice prosecutors admitted to something we have long known. That DOJ is in possession of exculpatory evidence in favor of the January 6 political prisoners.

    Defendant Couy Griffin faces charges for leading a prayer in an “unrestricted area” at the Capitol on January 6. He and others charged with being present at the Capitol have long been seeking evidence showing they did not break the law.

    While prosecutors refuse to produce exculpatory evidence, today they admitted that it is in their possession:

    “Although we are aware that we possess some information that the defense may view as supportive of arguments that law enforcement authorized defendants (including Defendant) to enter the restricted grounds, e.g., images of officers hugging or fistbumping rioters, posing for photos with rioters, and moving bike racks, we are not in a position to state whether we have identified all such information.”

    However, the DOJ continues to drag its feet and deny these January 6 defendants their constitutional right to access this evidence. The Government alleges it is “not currently in a position to identify all information that may be material to the defense in this case.”

    It further states that “we are not in a position to turn over the universe of information we possess for Defendant to review.”

    These developments should come as no surprise. The Government …

    -Refuses to release video of January 6 to the public,
    -Has imprisoned those who peacefully protested at the Capitol, and
    -Refuses to prosecute the officer who shot unarmed protester Ashli Babbitt.

    Why, after all, is Nancy Pelosi deliberately barring Trump allies from the January 6 probe?

    Perhaps for the same reasons Democrats refuse to comply with the election audits, and MSM immediately labels anything that debunks their narrative of deception as “lies” or “conspiracy theory.”

    As Christians, it is our duty to carry His cross which means to fight for principle. There is a difference between fighting for principle, and fighting for reasons freighted by conceit. There are two distinctly different groups of people; those who fight for Truth and those who fight to defend their lies. One believes in God, the other doesn’t.

    On August 9, 1942, Edith Stein, known today as Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, a Carmelite nun born to a prominent Jewish family in Breslay, Poland, was executed by the Nazis (National Socialist Party) in Auschwitz.

    Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God. —Thomas Jefferson

    “Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.” – Benjamin Rush
    U.S. Founding Father, Signer of The Declaration of Independence
    (1746-1813)*

    *Now google this and see how this has been debunked as bogus.

  2. Just left a comment with several links that evaporated in cyberspace when “post comment” was clicked. This happens quite frequently at WordPress.

    1. I looked in the filtered folder and found your comment. It got filtered because of the number of links in it. WP thinks that it is SPAM, so it goes to the SPAM folder. Your comment is up now, sorry.

      1. Not a problem. Since this actually happens frequently at other WordPress sites, I have learned to keep copies of my comments before hit “post comment” and by now we all know what’s going on behind the scenes to censor information.

        Incidentally, I sent the full text of my comment to the “contact admin” email on your page. Please let me know if you did not, for some reason, receive it and if so, also please feel free to post it.

        Meanwhile, for those interested, this symposium exposing the election fraud taking place now in South Dakota is being livestreamed here:

        It will be a surprise if this one doesn’t disappear, too.
