More from Publius: On Tories

Another short column from Publius:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 

 These words are the birth cry, the first breath, of America. Everything before this was rendered null and void by the Revolution. Everything after rests on this concept.

America is the only country in history that is defined by ideals instead of by race or tribe. This nation is under attack. It needs our devotion and support.

If you reject the idea of all men being created equal before God and wish to support an English country, you are not an American.

You are a Tory.

This might be the time for you to return across the Atlantic and support your homeland of England. Looks like they may need your help.

Just ask George Clooney.

My comment:

For those of you who slept through history class, the Tories are the British political party that support the interests of the Crown against the aristocrats and landowners; and the Whigs support the interests of aristocrats and landowners against the Crown. If you watch costume dramas about the American Revolution, the Tories are the bad guys.

This is because the American Revolution was basically the colonial landowners and propertied class offended by the Crown overstepping the terms of the various colonial charters granted the colonies. English civic charters, starting with the Magna Carta, are the model of the US Bill of Rights: legal documents setting boundaries to state power.

So Publius here means the Tories are the bad guys opposed to the American Revolution and the American ideals of a constitutional republic, but who uphold the British ideal of a constitutional monarchy.

For those of you who do not catch the reference, George Clooney is the actor who moved from the United States to London after the election, but who moved back within months.  According to a report from Life and Style Magazine, Clooney makes move due to “increased security concerns” for his family.

The United Kingdom, which is swiftly turning into an Islamic occupied territory, is not safe. As a Lebanese woman from an Islamic family, his wife, Mrs. Clooney, has been the subject of threats from radical Islamic groups.

In a related story, Leftists have also shunned and denounced Mrs. Clooney for her speech at the U.N., where she called on the world not to let ISIS get away with genocide.

The regressive Progressives, SJWs and Morlocks reacted to the call to stop Muslims from killing Muslims by shunning and denouncing her. Make of that what you will.
