I don’t remember exactly where I heard this axiom but I believe it is more true for us conservatives now than it has ever been. To better understand this we must look at where we have come from, where we are now and what possibilities the future holds.
Sometime in the nineteen fifties liberals, communists, socialists (they are branches of the same foul tree so from now on I will refer to them all as liberals) realized they could not win elections by being honest about what they wanted. Having united to throw off a great depression, win a world war and deeply in the process of rebuilding the countries we destroyed, few Americans were willing to tolerate being called the focus of evil in the world.
In the fifties Americans were brought unashamedly face to face with the amazing potential for goodness and greatness that we had, as a people, always possessed. Notice I didn’t mention perfection. As a country we knew there were struggles remaining to be fought, civil rights for example, but we also knew by then that there was no problem big enough to destroy us. The Nazis couldn’t do it. The Japanese couldn’t do it. The great depression couldn’t do it. Americans knew of a surety the only limits they would face would be self imposed. Thanks to the likes of Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini, the liberal, communist, socialist ideal had taken a brutal beating. Instead of giving up, liberals, communists and socialists decided to play hurt.
Their two prong plan was deceptively simple; first, attack from inside the “systems” of America, education, media, news, government, the courts and crucially, religion; second, never give up.
The first and arguably most important step was the gradual takeover of the public education system. None of the other arenas could be usefully penetrated without properly educated individuals. They started at the colleges and have since worked their way down to pre-school. Doing this allowed for the white wash of liberal, socialist, communist histories of brutality and failure. It also allowed for the direct and most effective indoctrination of millions of Americans at the lowest possible cost. It was accepted that results would, at first, be slow in coming. Those who had been successfully indoctrinated in college would then spread out into government, politics, education, media and even the scientific community. The cycle would be, once a critical mass was reached, self sustaining by its very nature.
At this point I can hear you shouting at me, “But Sailor, that is some huge conspiracy. How does all this get coordinated?” Allow me an example. A coworker of mine likes to talk about a grand lame stream news conspiracy. He envisions a secret conference call every morning to decide who and what gets reported on as well as how it is spun. I surprised him by saying I agreed with him but not in a way he probably thought I would. There is no need for any kind of direct coordination because these news types all went to the same schools, were taught and influenced by the same professors, read the same books, talk to the same people and live in the same places. They have a template of what is and what should be. They have been taught to believe that practicing confirmation bias is actually how news should be reported. It is, in that respect, the perfect conspiracy in that it is decentralized, its participants are highly motivated and it is self reinforcing.
Even if the takeover of public education and the news media is a huge, directed conspiracy it actually needs little coordination. Gentle proddings, not to mention lots of cash, from people like Soros or Gates will suffice. The simplicity of the “conspiracy” (your word not mine) is its reliance on human nature. Talk to any true believer and you will soon see how little “coordination” is required. The conspiracy is simply that these people all believe the same things and refuse to accept, much less allow you to accept, anything different.
Fast forward to today. Liberals now brazenly flaunt their hatred of America in the open. Antifa and blm are the latest incarnations of Stalin and Hitler approved by millions of successfully indoctrinated public education victims. As an example lets examine the black community. Liberals, after having successfully decimated the nuclear black family, have convinced blacks to welcome a life of welfare servitude, to tolerate a roughly 97% black on black murder rate, to celebrate a gangster/drug culture, to segregate themselves in colleges, to demand reparations for conditions they never experienced from people who had nothing to do with slavery, to demand their own nation within the borders of the United States, to allow the open call for ten thousand black warriors to begin killing every white person they can find and refusing to prosecute high profile black criminals simply because of their skin color. The black community routinely denigrates successful conservative blacks for being either not black enough or acting to white. While the black community lunges headlong into anarchy and self destruction liberals continue to make excuses revolving around how evil America is.
In the hispanic community liberals are having almost as much success. Realizing that the hispanic population will soon outnumber the black community, liberals continue their push for open borders and voter fraud. They seek to expand the hispanic population as rapidly as possible through illegal actions like DACA, birthright citizenship and chain migration. They continue to peddle their racist America routine by changing the language, exploiting the sympathies of Americans and outright displays of hate towards anyone who disagrees with them. They fund and support groups like “La Raza” (literally, The Race) and its violent para military arm MECH-A. They create sanctuary cities to protect illegal alien criminals from deportation and spend hundreds of billions in taxpayer dollars to provide legal aid, welfare, housing, medical and education to those who have no legal right to such services. They even teach that hispanic “victims” of America have the right to violently oppose conservatives that support the rule of law.
Then we have the importation of a standing moslem army into America in the names of tolerance, multiculturalism and compassion. These are often violently militant “religious” (islam is not a religion it is a political system disguised as a religion) fanatics. The vast majority of these individuals have no intention of assimilation or being tolerant of their new countries laws, rules, customs or traditions. Their “religious” duty is to subjugate us non believers. That’s it. They have no other goals.
By now you, the careful reader, doubtlessly have a question. “Sailor, I thought you said the liberal, communists, socialists were trying to take over the country. It sounds like maybe they are trying to destroy it instead of take it over.”
Great observation and thank you for paying attention to such a depressing subject. You are correct. Let me explain. At the outset liberals knew there were only two possible outcomes (failing was never considered) for their strategy. History shows that these sort of people seldom come into power (outcome 1) peacefully. They gain their thrones almost always (outcome 2) by the spilling of blood.
Recent elections have shown the liberals that option 1 may no longer be possible. The republican takeover of the house was the first shot fired by Americans tired of being the focus of evil in the modern world. Liberals wrote it off as a white male temper tantrum. When the republicans gained control of the senate alarm bells began going off in the minds of liberals everywhere. The guarantee of Hillary winning the presidency was their only hope of capping off their long march. When she lost a sense of urgent desperation took over and the restraints came off.
Now under what they perceive as a direct threat, every option is on the table. No critic of liberalism is to be spared any form of derision, attack or personal destruction. The true nature of liberals has been ripped out from under their benign sounding political correctness for all to plainly see. We are treated daily to the cesspools of public education, popular culture and political corruption. The open endorsement of hate and violence towards conservative and Christian Americans by the left is both stunning to behold and ugly beyond belief. The constant attacks on America itself are, to me, the vilest sort of evil.
I said it before and I will say it again, Trump was not my guy. Still, while he has disappointed me on several occasions, he has pleasantly surprised me on others. He has proven to anyone paying attention that you can play, and win, while hurt. It is time for conservatives to “play hurt” and finish the job of taking our country back. We will be assaulted for this in every way liberals can conceive of but that threat must not dissuade us. The level of their anger towards us should be seen, properly I might add, as confirming the correctness of our actions. The more successful we are in reclaiming America from the liberal tyrants doing their best to destroy her, the louder they will cry and the more brutal their assaults on us will become.
Once upon a time the cry “Give me liberty or give me death,” roused a nation of fine and decent people to secure their freedoms. There is no way to improve on that call. All I can add is, sometimes you gotta play hurt.
