Dan Proft: 2020: A Choice Between Two Bernies

In a sense, the 2020 race is shaping up as a choice between two Bernies—a right Bernie and a left Bernie.

Do you like the Capitalist Bernie or the Bolshevik Bernie?

These two Bernies have neatly defined the choice in 2020.

On the one hand is Home Depot founder, the creator of a half-million jobs, and billionaire Bernie Marcus who is spending his golden years giving away his money to worthy causes.

On the other hand is Soviet devotee Sen. Bernie Sanders who’s spending his golden years the same way he spent his formative ones—giving away other people’s money.

Bernie Marcus is an unabashed Trump supporter undeterred by threats of a Home Depot boycott by Marxist mobsters.

Bernie Sanders is an unrepentant redistributionist who said on “Meet the Press” recently his goal is “to make the poor richer and the rich poorer.”

Bernie Marcus doesn’t believe helping people is a zero-sum proposition. Bernie Sanders believes everything should be free except freedom.

Which Bernie will you support in 2020?

Dan Proft: The Night Kodi Lee Changed the World

 

Kodi Lee is 22-year-old blind, autistic man who blew the doors of the joint on the popular “America’s Got Talent” show and left the nation in a puddle of joyful tears with his soulful rendition of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You.” The views on YouTube are at 25 million and climbing.

Kodi is as astonishing as is the divide in America over whether the Kodi Lees of the world should even be allowed to live in the first place.

According to the intellectual godfathers of the pro-abortion movement, Kodi Lee is one of the “defective” people who should’ve been killed in the womb.

Watch him perform and tell me he isn’t a divinely inspired talent.

Watch Kodi Lee perform and ask yourself, is the world a better place with or without him?

“You just changed the world,” America’s Got Talent judge Gabrielle Union told Kodi Lee after his performance.

Let’s hope she’s right.

Dan Proft: Kendrick Castillo: Real Man

In our era of entitled youth and young men weakened by safe-spaced college campuses and fears of their own toxicity, it’s easy to fret for America’s future.

And then we are reminded of the existence of resolute, faithful young men prepared to defend to the death the civilized against the barbaric.

Enter Kendrick Castillo.

Castillo is the young man who bum-rushed one of the shooters who opened fire on their Colorado charter school and their 1800 classmates.

Kendrick Castillo took a bullet in the chest and laid down his life to save the lives of an incalculable number of others.

“I wish he had gone and hid, but that’s not his character,” said Castillo’s father. But, he went on, “His character is about protecting people, helping people.”

I wish we could bottle and sell whatever it was Kendrick Castillo’s parents did to raise such a courageous young man.

Dan Proft: The Next Phase of the Sexual Revolution

The sexualization of children will be televised.

It’s on “Good Morning America” where an 11-year-old drag queen dances provocatively to the approval of the hosts and studio audience alike.

It’s on Hulu in the form in the series “Pen15” with behavior I can’t describe here.

Gore Vidal would be a prude by the standards of today’s culture.

In 2015, an admitted pedophile argued in Salon.com that, “Society preventing children from engaging in sex play and romance is akin to preventing them from learning to swim.”

Today, New York state legislators respond to sex trafficking by introducing legislation to legalize prostitution.

The social justice response to sex abuse by Catholic clergy is to remove the celibacy vow and prohibitions on homosexuality for priests.

The response to the latest sexual abuse charges against R. Kelly is for his attorney to assert an implicit consent defense—for preying on 14-year-old kids.

The sexual revolution is on the cusp of conquering its final frontier.

Dan Proft: Take the Deal

As soon as President Trump deleveraged by ending the partial government shutdown, it was inevitable that he’d only get a fraction of the money and miles of border barriers he wanted—at least for now.

Rather than quarreling about whether this is a win or not, Trump should use it as the stepping stone on the path to victory in 2020.

Trump will have pictures of new infrastructure along the border, the support of border patrol and stats demonstrating a decline in illegal crossings.

That will be more than enough evidence to wipe away the specific numbers on miles and dollars from the concerns of most voters, particularly his base.

He should take the deal and build on it.

Next: He should find an accommodation for DACA designees to cement his position as a leader who cares about the safety of human beings on both sides of the border.
