American conservatism defend Western culture from the perceived threats posed by socialism and authoritarianism

The unemployment rate for the black people in America is at a historic low, and this is happening under President Donald Trump. The big loser in this game seems to be the Democratic Party. According to Candace Owens, the Democratic party will see a major exit by black voters leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

Candace Owens is an American conservative commentator and activist. She is known for her pro-Trump commentary, and criticism of Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party. Conservative in the U.S is not the same as we know it in Europe and Asia. So, what is it?

First of all; the man who is best known for being conservative in the Republican Party is Ronald Reagan. He spoke from the Oval Office, outlining his plan for tax reduction in July 1981. Now, Mr Trump is doing exactly the same.

But the word conservative is often used very different from the way it is used in Europe and Asia. Following the American Revolution, Americans rejected the core ideals of European conservatism; those ideas were based on the landed aristocracy, established churches, and powerful armies.

American conservatism is a broad system of political beliefs in the United States that is characterized by respect for American traditions, republicanism, support for Judeo-Christian values, moral absolutism, and a defence of Western culture from the perceived threats posed by socialism, authoritarianism, and moral relativism.

Liberty, economic freedom, social conservatism, and promotion of Judeo-Christian ideals are core beliefs, with a particular emphasis on strengthening the free market, limiting the size and scope of government in the economy, and opposition to high taxes and government or labor union encroachment on the entrepreneur.

American conservatives consider individual liberty, within the bounds of conformity to American values, as the fundamental trait of democracy, which contrasts with modern American liberals, who generally place a greater value on equality and social justice.

American conservatism originates from republicanism, which rejected aristocratic and monarchical government based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence of 1776, which stated 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.”

In 1789, the Constitution of United States established a Federal Republic under the rule of law. All major American political parties are based on these two documents. Conservative activists to this day occasionally dress in costumes from the Revolutionary era and celebrate revolutionary episodes such as the Boston Tea Party.

Conservative philosophy also has continuity to the classical liberal tradition of the 18th and 19th centuries, which advocated for laissez-faire economics, also called economic freedom and deregulation.

The conservative movement of the 1950`s attempted to bring together these divergent strands, stressing the need for unity to prevent the spread of “godless communism.”

Through much of the 20th century, a primary force uniting the varied strands of conservatism, and uniting conservatives with liberals and socialists, was opposition to communism, which was seen not only as an enemy of the traditional order, but also the enemy of Western freedom and democracy.

Thus it was the British Labour government, which embraced socialism, that pushed the Truman administration in 1945-1947 to take a strong stand against Soviet Communism.

In the 21th century United States has different types of conservatism, which is first of all; Christian conservatism. They are primarily interested in family values. Fiscal conservatism focuses on low taxes and restrained government spending.

Neoconservative is a modern form of conservatism that supports a more assertive, interventionist foreign policy, aimed at promoting democracy abroad. It is tolerant of an activist government at home, but is focused mostly on international affairs.

The 1980`s and beyond became known as the «Reagan Era.» Typically, conservative politics and spokesmen in the 21st century proclaim their devotion to Reagan`s ideals and policies on most social, economic and foreign policy issues.

Now, we are living in a “Trump Era.” Some say it is Populism, but I will rather call it “Trumpism.”

The U.S will support the victims of crime

I was watching the U.S President Donald Trump`s much anticipated debut address to Congress on February 28. A speech that was big on rhetoric and I think investors will need to wait for any tax cuts and infrastructure investments.

In his one hour speech, there was one thing that was mind-blowing to the listeners. Nearly everyone in Capitol Hill said: Wowww to Trumps innovation.

President Donald Trump is in war with the MSM and in his speech he said the U.S must support law enforcement and victims of crime, adding it will provide a voice to people ignored by the media and silenced by special interests.

Trump have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to save American victims, and the office is called: VOICE (Victims of immigration Crime Engagement). After announcing the initiative on Tuesday, you could hear people in Capitol Hill were surprised.

The new office will publish a weekly list of all crimes committed by immigrants, which means people with or without U.S documents could find their names on the list.

Freedom of speech is understood to be fundamental in a democracy, and it’s not something new. It is thought that ancient Athens’ democratic ideology of free speech may have emerged in the late 6th or early 5th century BC.

The values of the Roman Republic included freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Concepts of freedom of speech can be found in early human rights documents. England`s Bill of Rights 1689 legally established the constitutional right of ‘freedom of speech in Parliament’ which is still in effect.

The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, adopted during the French Revolution in 1789, specifically affirmed freedom of speech as an inalienable right. The Declaration provides for freedom of expression in Article 11, which states that:

The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law.

This leads us back to Paris and Charlie Hebdo. A French satirical weekly newspaper that features cartoons, reports, polemics and jokes. The publication is irrelevant and stridently non-conformist in tone, is strongly secularist, nonreligious, and left-wing.

They had a lot of fun with nearly everybody like athletes, Kings, Presidents, religions and pop stars to name a few. The cartoonists didnt just mock President Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollandes politics. They also regularly amplified their sexual appetites and diminished their sexual appurtenances.

Charlie Hebdo`s editor, Stephane Charbonnier, said at that time: “We thought the lines had moved and maybe there would be more respect for our satirical work, our right to mock. Freedom to have a good laugh is as important as freedom of speech.”

Its offices have been firebombed, Facebook page suspended for 24 hours and its website hacked. They were attacked by Al-Qaedas Islamist terrorist group because they where kidding with the prophet Muhammed.

Cartoonist Stèphane “Charb” Charbonnier, murdered in the attack on the magazine, had been the editor-in chief of Charlie Hebdo since 2009. Two years before the attack he stated: “We have to carry on until Islam has been rendered as banal as Catholicism.” In 2013, al-Qaeda added him to its most wanted list.

We have also seen how the MSM tried to bring President Donald Trump down to the ground especially before the election. Now, they are trying to figure out a new campaign to try to get rid of him. Is all this funny things responsibility?

Who said: «Je suis Charlie.»
