Wo ist der GOP?

Oh where is the GOP, or any conservative leadership right now?  The Federalist asks the million dollar question.  Or, to be more to the point, where are Americans who love and value America and its traditions and heritage?  Where are the counter protests?  Where are the 'God Bless America' or 'America is Great' protesters? 

It's been stunning silence  Silence from the GOP.  Silence from Conservative leaders.  Silence from Christians who only in recent years seemed to think God and history and the rise of Democracy and all were things.

True, in the last few days we've begun to hear some talk, mostly from the GOP and President Trump. Talk that is.  I'm sure there have been right wing pundits out there, like Rush Limbaugh, pounding the drums.  I know Tucker Carlson has been calling a spade a spade.   But on the whole, more silence than noise.

What does that mean?  We're wimps?  We're all talk?  We don't really believe it?  By now those who would preserve the nation have had ample time to respond.  So far the response has been tepid at best.

We'll see, but I'm not optimistic.  By now there should have been tremendous push-back from the GOP in those areas where Democrats are seizing on the riots to aid in the destruction of our heritage.  We've had enough time to see organized responses from the street level.  Only a few weeks ago people were protesting in large numbers against the Quarantines.  Where are they now?  All in all, it does not bode well.
