Today is the 75th anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill’s Iron Curtain Speech, otherwise known as “The Sinews of Peace”, in which Churchill warned about the dangers of communism.
Delivered on March 5, 1946, in Fulton, MO, Churchill touched upon issues that remain pertinent today, as a new Iron Curtain has descended across the United States Capitol, circling the entire complex, separating Congress (our so-called representatives) from We the People.
What was once open and free to all, a symbol of our great Republic, a shining city on a hill, is now a fortress, militarized against the Republic’s own citizens, manned by thousands of uniformed and armed National Guard troops.
The new Iron Curtain (which may in fact be steel, comprised of chain link fencing topped by razor wire, aka concertina wire), is designed to protect the elite (but especially the Democrats, communists, leftists, progressives, and socialists) within the Capitol from those who oppose their tyrannical, oligarchic, communist, fascist, anti-American, anti-democratic, unconstitutional policies. Their Iron Curtain shuts out We the People, whom they have dubbed “deplorables,” “domestic enemies,” and, worse, “domestic terrorists.”
It would behoove us to read some excerpts from Churchill’s speech, keeping in mind conditions today in our nation’s seat of government [emphasis added]:
What then is the overall strategic concept which we should inscribe today? It is nothing less than the safety and welfare, the freedom and progress, of all the homes and families of all the men and women in all the lands. …
To give security to these countless homes, they must be shielded from the two gaunt marauders, war and tyranny. …
Our supreme task and duty is to guard the homes of the common people from the horrors and miseries of another war. We are all agreed on that. …
Now I come to the second danger of these two marauders which threatens the cottage home and the ordinary people — namely, tyranny. …
In [tyrannical] States, control is enforced upon the common people by various kinds of all-embracing police governments, to a degree which is overwhelming and contrary to every principle of democracy. The power of the State is exercised without restraint, either by dictators or by compact oligarchies operating through a privileged party and a political police. …
[W]e must never cease to proclaim in fearless tones the great principles of freedom and the rights of man, which are the joint inheritance of the English-speaking world and which, through Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights, the Habeas Corpus, trial by jury, the English Common Law, find their most famous expression in the American Declaration of Independence.
All this means that the people of any country have the right and should have the power by constitutional action, by free unfettered elections with secret ballot, to choose or change the character or form of government under which they dwell; that freedom of speech and thought should reign; that courts of justice, independent of the executive, unbiased by any party, should administer laws which have received the broad assent of large majorities or are consecrated by time and custom.
Here are the title deeds of freedom, which should lie in every cottage home. … Let us preach what we practice, let us practice what we preach.
Recently, Joe Biden removed, once again, the bust of Winston Churchill that had been restored to the White House by former President Trump, after it had previously been removed during the Obama/Biden administration.
One has to wonder: What’s their problem with Winston Churchill?
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene recently published an enlightening video tour of the fortifications at the Capitol, which she dubbed “Pelosi’s Border Wall in the District of Communism.”
If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to have visited the Capitol in person, prior to Biden’s reign, then it’s impossible, in my opinion, to not be sick to your stomach when you see the desecration wrought by the presence of fences, razor wire, border control stations, and U.S. troops, armed and ready for action against the very People they’re sworn to protect.
Every American citizen should be beyond outraged by the political games that Pelosi, Biden, Schumer, and their sycophants in the Democrat Party as well as the complicit, compliant media are playing with our Capitol.
You have to ask yourself what they’re planning next, since they appear to be so afraid of the very people they’re supposed to represent.
Are they afraid of the People because they know that most of us oppose the initiatives they plan to ram through Congress, to be signed by Joe Biden, no matter what the People want?
The elite within the Capitol have sufferance to be there in our Capitol, because they are supposed to represent We the People, not treat us like barbarians at the gate, deplorables, “domestic enemies” and “domestic terrorists” instead of their fellow citizens.
What would Winston Churchill think of this New Iron Curtain that has fallen across the District of Columbia?
What words of wisdom might Churchill have for us today?
