Live from Music Row, Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary.
Michael, there are certain things that are immutable truths. And just because you say that up is down and down is up and you say that over and over again, doesn’t change the fact that up is up and down is down. And those are two, two things that are factually undeniable, but yet there are folks who want to take up and make it down and make it up.
And we say that in the sense of values and human nature. You’re beginning to see this more and more with this trans rights activism. It’s the people who feel uncomfortable in their bodies that are behind it, I think it’s big pharma, and I think that there are forces at work that are there to try to confuse our young people and to really destabilize our country.
But in the process of doing that, it doesn’t change the fact that what they’re destabilizing are immutable truths. There’s no civilization in history that has ever been successful where the family was not the foundation of the civilization. There’s no civilization that has actually prospered where the individual didn’t have rights that were greater than that of the state.
Now when I say there’s no civilization that has prospered, there are plenty of civilizations that have used brute force to subject and subdue their populations, but that doesn’t make them successful. It just makes them brutish and terrible places to live. And they are still places on earth today that would fall under the definition of Brutish and terrible places to live.
And so as we look at what’s going on today in our country, people who believe in values and who believe in certain immutable truths, they’re now pushing back. For example, the debt ceiling debate is going to be a very important debate for our country. You also see it in these legislatures across the country that are eliminating critical race theory teaching, which is trying to teach that immutable truths are in fact false.
You see it where you actually have to have legislation that says that physicians cannot mutilate the bodies of young people. And so I see a lot of good things, but I also see a lot of powers of terrible things. In fact, you could even call them evil, those powers exist. So you have this mighty battle.
It’s my hope that in the same states that are eliminating the right or the opportunity for medical people to mutilate the bodies of young people and to eliminate these terrible programs in our schools, that those very same states eliminate government employee unions within their own states.
Michael, we’ve been talking about this for two and a half years, the need to get rid of government employee unions, and it’s my hope that these governments do that because all those people do is take money from the taxpayers. This is not the government employee’s money. It’s the taxpayer’s money that they use against the very people that they take the money from. So let’s get rid of the government employee unions.
