The Urban Dictionary says that when you have ‘owned’ someone you have “total and undeniable dominance to make them one’s bitch. To dominate the person completely, to humiliate them, to be physically or mentally disgraced.” Is that what happened to Trump on November 3, 2020?
Let’s be clear. Nobody has owned anyone since the first Civil War. Yes, I said ‘first’. If people like Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Donald Trump himself get their way, we could have a second. The January 6th attempted sedition and attack on the US Capital is proof of that. There are a percent of MAGA supporters who are desperate for it.
There will be many in the United States who oppose the seditionists. About half of the US owns a gun! We as a nation have forgotten that the purpose behind an armed citizenry is to oppose dictatorship and foreign occupation. Remember Patrick Swayze and Chris Hemsworth in each of their roles in the movie Red Dawn (1984, 2012)? THAT is why we own guns! Wait, I forgot hunting and stuff.
Americans do not have guns to fight each other. When Lauren Boebert used the gunshot sound effects in her Nancy Pelosi attack ad, she was telegraphing the use of guns against our own government and the voting majority who put that government into place.
Time for a reality check. We don’t advocate for shooting people because we don’t like what they say.
Anyway, back to “Owning the Libs!” Utah Governor Spence Cox said, “There’s more to being a conservative than just owning the libs.” I couldn’t agree more. He also said, “I still believe in a Republican Party and a conservatism that lifts everyone and really is about opportunity for everyone, and we don’t do that by turning people away or ruining people’s lives or again just these fake controversies, these false choices that we keep presenting people.”
Former Governor of South Carolina and Trump’s Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said of the term Own the libs, “…are you persuading anyone? Who are you persuading? We’ve all been guilty of it at some point or another, but this kind of speech isn’t leadership — it’s the exact opposite.”
Denial of the core values of conservative thought while playing silly games like “Own the Libs” is not getting us anywhere. It’s immature. That’s what the GOP has become under Donald Trump. A bunch of back-biting juveniles all wound up in their own drama while THOSE LIBERALS they detest are running the country and getting us back on track after the COVID Pandemic.
It’s time to reject those juveniles who make a mockery of our political process. Donald Trump and his minions must be left in the history books. There are new thinkers on the right and the left who reject the immaturity and want to get back to leadership.
