I would like to compare a tale by Hans Christian Andersen to today’s “Progressive’s” ideas.

In 1837, he wrote a tale about a vain emperor whose nakedness is exposed. In the story, swindlers arrive at the palace of the king who spends lavishly on clothing at the expense of state matters. Posing as weavers, they offer to make magnificent clothes which are invisible to people who are stupid or incompetent.

The king parades through town completely naked, and only a small boy who obviously wasn’t brainwashed exclaims, “the king has on no clothes!” The adults are terrified of being labeled stupid or incompetent so remain silent.

Today, many people are afraid to speak out against the obvious absurd ideas that permeate our society.

Some examples include the following: defunding the police, allowing unvetted illegals into our country, global warming (renamed climate change), using the Coronavirus as a weapon, stimulus checks, windmills and solar panels from China, closing businesses and hospital visitors arbitrarily, masks are or are not necessary. The list goes on and on.

With the press and current political party in control, citizens are frightened and feel hopeless. Many physical and mental problems have been exacerbated by the isolation policies in place. People are out of work, but many get more money by not working at all.

When will all of this insanity stop. Wake up, America!
