THE ABOLITION OF MAN

Fans of one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, C. S. Lewis will recognize the words of the title. The Abolition of Man was presented in a series of lectures by Lewis in 1943. Those lectures dealt primarily with the dangers of moral relativism. In contemplating moral relativism he pointed out what he believed were the destructive trends emerging in the so called modern world-view.

A veteran of WW I who later became a devout Christian, Lewis presented these ideas, I believe, as a way to understand those who seek Americas destruction. As a combat veteran I suspect he understood that before you can defeat your opponent you must know who he is.

Liberals, progressives and democrats have morphed over the years into the party of the Abolition of Man. Their concerted efforts have been directed at the destruction of every concept or principle that helped create the greatest nation in the history of the world. They seek the complete destruction and replacement of these ideals for nothing more than their desire to exert total control over the masses, ie you and I. In those efforts they attack the very concepts Lewis sought for us to understand. Let’s examine them briefly.

A thing that is contradictory cannot be true.

Never has such a completely self evident idea been so thoroughly abused. Today the corrupted culture of liberal, progressive political correctness demands that:

We accept men as women and women as men.

We accept that there is no substantive difference between men and women.

We accept that sex between adults and children is both normal and healthy.

We accept that a political ideology disguised as a religion is in fact a peaceful religion.

We accept the idea that anyone who can make it across our border in violation of our laws is entitled to free everything.

We accept that a black man convicted of any crime is simply a victim of white racism.

We accept that a disagreement over policy is also an expression of racism if the policy is brought forth by a “person of color” and the disagreement is raised by a “white” person.

We accept that as a nation can continue to spend billions more dollars than we actually have without consequence.

We accept that actual education can be replaced by political indoctrination without negative consequence.

We accept that factual reporting of the murderous culture of black inner cities (Chicago, Baltimore etc) is in fact racist.

We accept that we can actually create so called global warming.

This list could go on for pages but I suspect you are beginning to see the picture. The fact is that all these accepted concepts fly directly into the face of reason. They only make sense when wrapped in the cocoon of self indulgence or delusion.

Not being allowed to believe that values have any actual meaning.

Nowhere is this more evident than in today’s popular culture. Values such as honesty, chastity, hard work and sacrifice are readily and viciously attacked as backward, simple minded or outright stupid by “enlightened” late night comedy hosts and, to borrow a phrase, their trained seal audience. Consider:

The high school girl who chooses to remain a virgin until married is brutally ridiculed and scorned.

The black student who studies hard and plays by the rules is labeled an Uncle Tom or sellout.

The man who departs from the homersexual lifestyle and settles down to raise a family is vilified.

The family that goes to church and prays together is mocked as simple minded religious zealots.

The person who works hard, saves money and builds a successful business is an evil corporate fat cat.

These tragedies happen because the left is justly terrified of the damage these values can bring to the fantasy world they live in. These time honored values put the lie to liberalism’s phony values for anyone to plainly see. Thus they must be destroyed at every opportunity.

What would you die for?

No one answers this question better than police officers, fire fighters and or our military. These are people who risk everything to protect and preserve the ideals that so many American’s today have no knowledge of, understanding or experience with or sometimes even tolerance of. While there are always exceptions I believe the vast majority of these fine public servants understand the values of actual free speech, real privacy and true self determination.

Who would flatter us to sell us for a slave?

Islamic devotee and congressional headcase (watch the video of her being tossed from a Trump rally before you complain) Talib tries to bribe us with a $20 minimum wage. This proven job killer is literally insane to anyone who has even a modicum of financial education. This is nothing more than an attempt to sell as many people as possible into the addiction of government dependency by crashing the job market. But she is not alone.

Liberals demand that a five year old boy who picks up a Barbie doll be administered female hormones because he is “identifying” as a female. This turns an idle moment of curiosity into an opportunity to make him another victim of the gay agenda.

Progressives sell young people into a life of drug addiction with medical/recreational marijuana.

Democrats in leadership positions constantly strive to obtain control of every facet of your life. In this process they have developed an unquenchable taste for controlling what you think as well.

Mainstream media, having abandoned the search for truth now deluge us with daily doses of politically correct propaganda to keep people from thinking. When we think, they lose and they know it.

Legislators, in the adoption of so called hate crimes laws, seek to criminalize any thoughts they don’t approve of. In their desire to “protect” us they now seek to insert themselves into our very thought processes.

The death of common reason is the death of man.

Common sense has been under relentless assault by liberals and progressives for at least the last thirty years. No longer are we allowed to put 2 and 2 together and arrive at 4. Today we must check common sense at our door every time we step outside our home. We are compelled by our betters to accept:

That bearded man in a dress that followed your twelve year old daughter into the ladies room must be considered to be a harmless women.

The five teenage gang bangers that are trying to surround you on the subway are in fact, just innocent boys looking for directions (to your wallet).

The gay men tossed off ten story buildings by tolerant moslems weren’t really murdered, they were just inexperienced thrill seekers.

No longer are we allowed to trust our judgment. We are required to ignore our lying eyes to maintain the leftist illusion of utopia on Earth.

We need a standard outside our own opinion.

Everyone has an opinion on something and some have opinions on everything. The thing about opinions is that they can be swayed. Family, friends, peers, junk science and pop culture, to name a few influences, can reform our opinions into stuff we never would have imagined. Without a foundation to rest upon, opinions can wander into high strangeness. Lewis’s foundation came to be Christian religion. A foundation is needed to help us remain faithful to our ideals, to remind us of where we came from, where we are headed and why we are headed there. The liberal foundation of ever shifting values is a recipe for personal, financial and spiritual disaster.

See everything as something to own or control.

This is the classic definition of liberalism. You and everything in your life is something for liberals to own or control. It’s what liberals live for.

Only liberals know what is good for you to eat.

Only liberals know what is actual racism.

Only liberals know what is truly sexist.

Only liberals know how children should be educated.

Only liberals know how your business should be managed.

Only liberals know how you should spend your money (or how much you should make).

Only liberals know how healthcare should be distributed.

Only liberals know what you should think about anything

Surely you are beginning to get the picture. Liberalism or any of its disguises, socialism, democratic socialism, communism or totalitarianism all seek one thing, complete control over you and you life from cradle to grave.

Great truths from mom/dad must be taught young because as adults these concepts become difficult to understand/teach.

No greater damage has been done to the fabric of America by the left than in this area alone. Today parents are expected, by popular culture, to be mirrors of the simpletons portrayed in such missives as Modern Family. No longer are parents allowed to teach things like;

That life is seldom fair.

That no one actually owes you anything.

That there are only two genders not 42, 56 or 97.

That casual sex has no actual value and is in fact often unhealthy.

That hard work can lead to success.

That you must plan for your future.

That marriage is for life.

That God exists and both loves you and has great plans for you and expectations of you.

In these things, all of which I strove to teach my children and now grandchildren, my wife and I are, in the public perception, outliers. As an example, it is considered strange by far to many people that I have been married to the same lovely women thirty four years.

Parents teach far more by example than they realize. Children are highly observant and when parents focus on such false things as “my truth” or “my career” or “I just want to have a good time” those lessons are not only learned by those same observant children but retained. Those lessons are frequently validated by popular culture. These lessons are the stepping stones to emptiness, failure and sorrow. As a leader in my church once said, “No success on Earth can compensate for failure in the home.” I paraphrased his quote but it is painfully clear to anyone with an open mind that the Walton’s family values served the family, and by extension the nation, far better than Modern Family’s values.

Liberals And The Digital Ghetto

In the early 1940’s, controlling what people thought was in some respects, much easier and in others somewhat more difficult than doing so today. In those times people got their news from the newspapers and newsreels shown in movie theaters. Today simply perusing your FB account allows you to be considered well informed. In countries like Germany, the official party line was the news. Books were burned in an effort to deny both their existence and the ideas they contained. As a function of their noxious ideas about Jews the Nazi’s rounded up them up into ghettos. From there it was relatively easy to ship them off to the death camps. Not only was no one watching, virtually no one could watch thus there was no one to hear their pleas for help. To some observers, that history is beginning to repeat itself only this time, it is beginning in the digital arena.

Once again the often and nearly always unfairly maligned but stunningly revealing Project Veritas enlightens anyone willing to listen. James O’Keefe, doing what real journalists used to do, has again allowed evil to speak clearly for itself. In his latest effort GOOGLE has self identified as a willing perpetrator of censorship at levels that would turn Hilter himself green with envy.

Youtube, GOOGLE and Facebook have willingly chosen to form an evil alliance based on censorship, social justice and hatred of America itself. They seek nothing less than the total elimination of anything they disagree with. An interesting concept as this is an often changing target. Ebay and Amazon are seeking to add their clout to the formation of the digital ghetto conservatives and republicans must, according to these corporations, be placed in.

Enter recently Twitter, a sewer all its own. John Lott is the President of the Crime Prevention Research Center. He wrote More Guns, Less Crime, a book scientifically destroying the gun control argument. He recently tweeted, “New Zealand’s killer’s manifesto says that he did attack to get more gun control/gun bans in New Zealand and the US, Killer was a socialist, environmentalist who hated capitalists and trade.” Lott put links in his tweet so that anyone could follow up on the accuracy of his tweet. I’ll save you the time, his tweet is 100% correct.

Twitter, being the good social justice liberal hacks that they are, blocked Lott’s account and refused to tell him why. When he appealed he was sent a reply saying he lost his appeal and again, no explanation was provided.

Truth,” Lott said “I suppose, is no defense.” He added, “I can and have proven that my tweet is factually accurate.”

The thought police are striking hard. It is in part desperation as they see some of their gains beginning to slip away. It is also in part, their nature. Like antifa, they see no downside right now to attack maliciously and unfairly anyone they disagree with. The media and shadowy money men like Soros will cover for them. Shadow banning, censorship algorithms, demonetizing, deplatforming, doxxing and outright bias are the tools of the digital oppressors. Like a thief in the night they seek to steal from you the very idea that another opinion exists. If that doesn’t work they want you to believe that you and your opinion are so far outside the mainstream that you will censor yourself. They ply their hatred unseen by a population to busy with their newest app to even notice how manipulated they are. Don’t believe me? Put down your cell phone, internet and streaming services for six measly hours. I bet you can’t.

Today’s big brother knows virtually everything about you. Your phone, computer and Alexa type devices listen to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The NSA collects all your phone calls, emails, text messages and social media posts. Using GPS your phone and now, in newer models your car, informs on you just exactly where you have been and when you were there.

I can hear you now. So what Sailor, I got nothing to hide.

Ah, the voice of innocence speaking as you head naked into that “shower” with dozens of other people just like you. It may be a digital version but it is none the less a “shower.”

If that is your response all I can say is, wow, your indoctrination is complete. I hope you remember that when you finally become one of the digital oppressors targets, which because of their wildly varying standards, will eventually happen.

If you are willing to actually listen I have two points to make. Ponder them carefully.

First, none of these organizations have any generic right to this information. Period. The fact that this even needs to be said, let alone explained, reveals just how deeply the indoctrination has taken hold.

Second. This information is being gathered to both generate huge profits at your expense and perhaps even more importantly to the digital oppressors, sort us out. The digital oppressors need to know who to target now and who may be a potential threat to their coming, if they have their way, monopoly on both thought and opinion.

There is an old saying that goes, “Just because your paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.” I am certainly not paranoid but I am observant. Call me names if it makes you feel better but I believe we have sacrificed far to much liberty and privacy for the illusion of “security” and the sake of “convenience.” When GOOGLE and their ilk admit targeting you it isn’t really paranoia to point out what they have admitted to.

My grandfather used to tell me “There’s no point in denying the obvious.” I don’t know how much more obvious GOOGLE and their ilk can be. The question is, how many more of us will willingly head into the “showers?”

What Gay Agenda?

In 1987 Steve Warren, a militant homersexual advocate, published a chilling article titled, “Warning to the Homophobes.” I say chilling because as you read it you can see just how much of his agenda has come to pass.

Henceforth, homosexuality will be spoken of in your churches and synagogues as an“honorable estate.” Today there are, sadly, churches who actually vote on which parts of the Bible to believe. These alleged ecclesiastical leaders actively tolerate and promote homersexuality as a normal and acceptable lifestyle.

You can either let us marry people of the same sex, or better yet abolish marriage altogether. You will be expected to offer ceremonies that bless our sexual arrangements…You will also instruct your people in homosexual as well as heterosexual behavior, and you will go out of your way to make certain that homosexual youths are allowed to date, attend religious functions together, openly display affection, and enjoy each others sexuality without embarrassment or guilt. Does this really need elaboration?

If any of the older people in your midst object, you will deal with them sternly, making certain they renounce their ugly and ignorant homophobia or suffer public humiliation. Homersexuals now actively try to destroy peoples careers, businesses and families on a regular basis for no other reason than they disagree with the homersexual agenda.

You will also make certain that laws are passed forbidding discrimination against homosexuals and heavy punishments are assessed…. The over riding goal of the democratic party today is the enforced, by force of law, endorsement and celebration of homersexuality.

Finally, we will in all likelihood, want to expunge a number of passages from your Scriptures and rewrite others, eliminating preferential treatment of marriage and using words that will allow for homosexual interpretation of passages describing biblical lovers such as Ruth and Boaz or Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. The homersexuals, with the help of liberals, have been actively rewriting history for the last thirty years to make as many good and decent historical figures as possible “gay” and to clean up the filthy record of actual homersexuals like Harvey Milk.

Warning: If all these things do not come to pass quickly, we will subject Orthodox Jews and Christians to the most sustained hatred and vilification in recent memory. Don’t believe him? Try not baking a cake, arranging flowers or not wanting to photograph a homersexual wedding. Many devout Christians are even today in America, being actively persecuted for nothing more drastic than not wanting to be part of a homersexual “wedding.”

We have captured the liberal establishment and the press. We have already beaten you on a number of battlefields. Homersexuals now actively and freely preach the gospel of homersexuality in the schools down to kindergarten, hollywood and even so called pop culture.

You have neither the faith nor the strength to fight us, so you might as well surrender now.” I believe he is correct about far to many people. I am not one of them.

So, what does all this mean? Well…

A few days ago the Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted 236-173 to pass the grossly mislabeled “Equality Act.”

Tragically, eight so called Republicans (cowards all) crossed party lines and voted for this travesty of a bill. I hope each and everyone is successfully primaried.

So what exactly is this “Equality” bill? The bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” a protected characteristic under federal anti discrimination law.

I can hear you now. Big deal sailor. What harm could possibly come from making everyone equal? If you honestly can’t answer that question I suggest getting a refund for that useless public education you were given.

Here is an easy answer for your question. The first visible result will be in boys in women’s locker rooms and bathrooms. Men claiming to be women will invade about the only private space women have left. As TARGET found out during their pathetic virtue signaling campaign, the perverts will appear in droves. Do you really want to give said perverts the cover of law? Liberals do.

Or how about this. This bill requires female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls. Every girl athlete who dreams of pushing herself toward excellence will now potentially have compete against males with their inherent biological advantages. As a careful perusal of the news would show, this is already happening in women’s sports at many levels.

In an April 29 Washington Post op-ed three elite female athletes, Martina Navratilova, Doriane Coleman and Sanya Richards-Ross warned that the so called “Equality Act” will wreak havoc on women’s sports. “The legislation would make it unlawful to differentiate among girls and women in sports on the basis of sex for any purpose. For example, a sports team couldn’t treat a transgender woman differently from a woman who is not transgender on the grounds that the former is male-bodied,” the athletes warned.

Under this identity driven travesty men who think they are women and women who think they are men would become a “protected class” by law. Many “transgenders (by the way, there is no such thing as a transgender) can and do change their minds on their perceived sex often. I know of one case locally who changes his mind up to several times a day. This bill allows him, and others like him, to gain protected class status on a whim. This doesn’t even take into account all the fraudsters that will claim protection under the new law to insulate them from what would otherwise be crimes.

As bad as this all is, it gets worse.

This deliberate assault on reason, science and logic opens the doors of litigation and potentially drastic damages with attorneys’ fees paid by the loser. Anyone found “in violation” would be subject to fines, penalties, court orders, Justice Department prosecutions and/or a whole host of other severe enforcement measures. So much for keeping the government “out of our bedrooms.”

I think it is time Americans abandoned the much ballyhooed and completely mythical fantasy of gay tolerance towards normal Americans. And yes I used the N word. By definition 1% to 2% of anything is out of the range of normalcy. If that bothers you may I suggest spending more time in the real world.

I think it is time we stopped allowing our compassion to be weaponized against us by the militant and hateful gay lobby.

I think it is time we stood up to the deniers of biological science. There are only two “genders” and nothing you can sew on or chop off will ever change that.

I think it is time we stopped supporting groups that hate us simply because we choose not to endorse their lifestyle..

I think it is time we stopped allowing homersexuals to recruit our children in schools and public libraries. Let them breed like everyone else.

I think it is far past time that we publicly recognized the thoroughly documented pitfalls of the homersexual lifestyle and taught them to our children so they can make an informed choice.

Some will accuse me of being a “hater.” In the context they offer such nonsense, that is incorrect as anyone who knows me will attest. Even so, I do hate being lied to and lied about. You should too.

How To Lie By Telling The Truth

Here is a generic compilation of several “stories” I heard on the radio recently. The news presenter (a much more accurate term than “Anchor”) reported breathlessly, “The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed the complete un-redacted special counsels report.” Cut to the committee chairman, “The American people have the right to see everything in the report.” The news presenter then adds, “Republicans opposed the release of the un-redacted report.” Cut to commercial. The political novice, committed liberal or casual listener will likely reach the conclusion that there must be something seriously damaging in the special counsels report if the republicans are opposed to letting the public see it. That of course, was the purpose of the story.

The liberal, progressive, democrat, but I repeat myself, aversion to truth is well known to anyone willing to pay attention. Lying for these folks, at the leadership and media level, has become so ingrained, so second nature, that they are often completely oblivious to the fact that they are doing it. It has become an almost unconscious, ingrained ability to spin virtually any event in support of what ever current narrative they are trying to advance. It happens so often, especially in the so called main stream media that even the victims of the lies don’t even recognize that they are being lied to anymore. When presented with irrefutable evidence that they are not being honest the typical liberal, progressive, democrat reaction is name calling. AOC anyone?

The current demand by democrats in the House of Representatives to release the special counsels report in un-redacted form is a case study in how to lie by telling the truth.

Now, let us unpack that news “story” just a bit. We should examine each of the main points individually.

First. The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed the complete un-redacted special counsels report. This is completely true. What the media knows but will not tell you is that this is nothing more than a combination fishing expedition and political stunt. Democrats and their media flunkies all know full well that the report contains, among other things, grand jury testimony. They also know that it is illegal to release that testimony without a court order to do so. Even then, judges are typically reluctant to release grand jury testimony because it is nearly all allegation and speculation instead of hard facts. How do you think the ham sandwich got itself indicted?

Second. The American people have the right to see everything in the report. This is a moral high ground misdirection. How great are you when standing up for the “rights” of the people? The American people have a right to see some of the report. The American people have a right to know what conclusions were reached by the special counsel and what, if any, recommendations were made. We do not have the right to speculative and often unverifiable grand jury testimony or knowledge of secret intelligence sources or methods until such time as an actual trial is convened.

Third. Republicans opposed the release of the un-redacted report. This is the technically true portion. What is deliberately left unsaid is that Republicans are, in this instance, following the law as it is written. Again, this is added to create the impression that republicans have some dreadful things to hide. While I personally find many republicans to be dreadful, in this case they are following a sound legal principle. In order for grand juries to function effectively the witnesses brought before them must believe that their testimony will remain protected until such time as a trial is convened.

So, what have we learned in this brief civics. political science lesson?

Mainly, that is entirely possible to lie by telling the truth.

Hopefully, we have learned that often times context is an integral component of truth.

Possibly, that the truth is often a little deeper than we originally thought.

Finally, that the “truth” is out there and, because it will seldom be given to us in its fullness, it is up to us to find it. All the news presenter can do is shine a flashlight in the fog of information. It is up to you to learn the actual facts, reasoning’s and motivations of every one and everything in the “story.”

I can’t promise you that it will be easy or financially rewarding but there is a certain comfort in understanding. In my case that is it’s own reward.

The Blank Check

Some people, ok many people, accuse me of being to political. Perhaps I am. I almost always respond with the following question, “Name one area of your life that isn’t affected by some government law, rule, regulation or tax.” Here is a hint, you can’t because there isn’t one. But this isn’t about being political. This is about right and wrong. Allow me to elaborate.

It was around ten am when we heard the alarms going off on the ship across the pier from us. Of course we had no idea what was going on but everyone readied themselves to respond if needed. Although it was unspoken by everyone present we all noticed that the comforting words “This is a drill, this is a drill” were no being offered. There are few things in life more terrifying than an unknown danger. After an indeterminate amount of time had passed the alarms were silenced. Some time later we observed four gurneys were pushed up the ships gangway. They returned into view awhile later carrying four, sheet draped bodies. All of us watching, from only yards away, felt our stomach’s knot up with a powerful sense of tragedy. Everyone knew what those four gurneys carried. We knew that four men would never return home, never see their families or loved ones again. We didn’t know them but they were our brothers still. We, each in our own way, grieved.

We learned later just how tragic that story really was. Two sailors had been sent into a refrigerated compartment, nearly 35 years later the reason they were there escapes me. Climbing the ladder down into that space they had no way of knowing a pipe carrying the refrigerant had sprung a leak. The gas that kept the food cold also displaced the air. When the two sailors entered that compartment they quickly passed out, then suffocated.

At some point another sailor happened to walk by the open hatch and saw the two men laying on the floor. Concerned he called out to them. Getting no response he called out for help then climbed down the ladder to help his shipmates. Another sailor had heard his “man down” call for help and sent yet another passing sailor to get the corpsman and some more help, then he too, climbed down into that space to help his shipmates. By this time the commotion was starting to attract a crowd. As another sailor began to climb into the space he was restrained by a shipmate who had reasoned that everyone who entered that space had, at the very least, passed out. Fortunately, the mans reasoning made sense and no one else went into that space until the rescue team arrived.

Many veterans are mercilessly teased when they note the fact that when they enlisted they wrote a blank check to the United States of America for any amount up to and including their very lives. I know, I have been so treated. Yet, it is as true a statement of fact as can be made and, sadly that check has been cashed far to many times. Democrats and their supporters label what happened that day an accident or failure of work place safety rules. Of course it was an accident. No one that day planned to die. No one that day likely even contemplated dying. Yet four men paid the ultimate price for loving their country enough to serve and caring about their shipmates. For what ever reason Democrats can’t seem to acknowledge that. That is wrong, so very wrong.

Today, our veterans need us more than ever. While there are many groups doing their level best to help as many vets as they can, it is inescapable that the government they served, considers them expendable. This is wrong on so many levels. God bless Donald Trump for doing as much as he can. Because of the nature of the executive branches powers and the scope of the problem, he will never be able to solve the many problems facing vets today on his own. He needs congress’s help to effectively address those issues. The sad fact is that nearly all of congress is only interested in securing their reelections, padding their bank accounts and increasing their own power. Time and time again when given the choice to help our vets or reward illegal aliens for making it across the border, congress has chosen the lawbreakers over it’s good and faithful servants. That, my friends, borders on evil.

Democrats, as a general rule, act this way by rote. They have mouthed support for the military while actively undermining it all my adult life. To expect of them anything else is to not understand just how much they have always despised the military. The idea that after some forty years of hating the military they will suddenly change their minds is about as realistic as that Unicorn trap available in three colors for $19.99. Don’t misunderstand where I am going here. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but as a veteran there is no way I could ever support a democrat or a republican that acts like a democrat. The lives and well being of my brothers and sisters is far more important than congressman Skippy’s next PAC contribution or choice committee assignment.

Today, when it comes to the treatment of our veterans vs illegal aliens, tragically, far to many republicans behave like democrats. Again, don’t misunderstand where I’m going here. As a first generation American I totally support legal, merit based, moderate immigration levels. However, I see no need to import millions of welfare recipients or people who proactively hate America. As a veteran I am both deeply offended at the treatment of my brothers and sisters by the country we served, and the demand by that same government that people who have no legal right to be here should be cared for better than those of us who wrote that check.

You can call me to political. You can say I’m being overly melodramatic. You can say anything that makes you feel better. A $255 death benefit and a folded flag is nothing compared to free housing, food stamps, free medical care and education as well as being protected from the consequences of violating the law. As for me, every time I see a story about an illegal alien getting special treatment in a sanctuary city, every time I hear about a rape, robbery or murder committed by an illegal alien, I flash back to those four gurneys being wheeled down the pier.

The government cashed those four brave men’s checks to cater to an ungrateful, America hating group of lawbreakers. Perhaps the biggest tragedy of all is that so many Americans simply don’t care. Because I know this I weep for my brothers. I weep for my sisters. Most of all, I weep for my country.

They Are Going To Hate You Anyway

As a young player on my high school football team I would practice running pass routes over what we affectionately called “the middle”. In this area anyone trying to catch a pass is going to get hit by at least one defender, often hard, often by more than one defender, and usually you are in a vulnerable position when you do get hit. It is somewhat natural when you know the hit is coming to lose some of your focus on the ball to “prepare” yourself for the coming collision. My coach, recognizing that tendency in me called me out one day with a short but simple demand, “You might as well catch the ball, they are going to hit you anyway.”

I suppose it is an intrinsic need of all humans to seek approval. We seek it from our parents, friends, coworkers and, to some extent, even people we don’t even know. If you have ever moderated something you wanted to say because you worried about what people would say or think, you know what I am talking about.

As a conservative I am routinely under assault in one form or another because I refuse to moderate my pronouncements because of what someone might think. While I routinely upset many snowflakes and establishment swamp dwellers I work very hard to keep my positions grounded in both facts and common sense. The great offended typically place themselves under no such restrictions.

One of the most difficult things for me to accept early on was that I would be despised, sight unseen, by the great practitioners of tolerance, liberals. I soon learned that this intolerance would rapidly descend into outright hatred if I insisted on maintaining my beliefs. It gets even worse when you point out their hypocrisy.

I am sometimes accused of making blanket accusations. Where they apply I admit to doing so. Liberals, especially those in leadership positions, are dedicated practitioners of hate towards anyone they disagree with but especially conservatives. Don’t believe me? Allow me to inform you of some history that, as a public school victim, you were likely never taught.

Remember how evil Richard Nixon was? He caved to liberal demands far to often. He gave them the thuggish EPA and nearly tanked the economy by giving into liberal demands for wage and price controls. How was he rewarded for his compliance?

Remember what a senile dunce Ronald Reagan was? He trusted liberals when they promised him they would secure the border if he granted amnesty to 3 million plus illegal aliens. Have you seen the border lately?

Remember George H. Bush? He also trusted liberals when they promised him $3 in spending cuts for every dollar he raised our taxes. They not only never cut spending in any way shape or form, they spent so much that we are still paying for that travesty today.

Then there was George W. Bush. Remember how utterly evil he was? He gave liberals Medicare Part D, a massive expansion of a government program that was already teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. He gave liberals the TSA, a massive new union created for the sole purpose of creating a new revenue stream for democrat fundraising, suffering at the time because of declining union membership. How was he rewarded for such deliberate malfeasance? Liberals tried convincing America that he personally steered a hurricane onto New Orleans because the black population there did not vote for him.

The point is, no matter what you give to liberals, it is never enough. No matter how much you comply that compliance is never exactly enough. The masters of the moving goal post only want one thing, complete and absolute control over you, your life and your money. Their smiling faces, innocent requests and “devotion” to “tolerance” are a smokescreen created for the sole purpose of misleading you.

A current analogy would be the “Palestinian” demands to negotiate with Israel. Since the “Palestinians” only want one thing, the death of every Jew on the planet, what is there for Israel to negotiate? Would liberals and “Palestinians” be happy if Israel committed to a timetable for the extermination of their race? I suspect they would then castigate the Jews for not killing themselves off quickly enough. It seems to be the way liberals think today.

So, here we are today, a great many so called conservatives trying to thread the needle of reason by balancing their beliefs on the head of the liberal pin. I reject that posturing and you should too. This doesn’t mean we are mean or evil. It means we simply accept that reality exists and is not subject to the vagaries of human imagination.

It means that we have to acknowledge that:

There are not 12, 45 or 92 genders.

That, at the political level, we have a two tiered justice system, one for conservatives and one for liberals.

That four year old boys cannot “know” that they are actually little girls.

That voter fraud not only exists in stunning proportions but is almost exclusively democrat in origin.

That there is nothing wrong with being proud of America.

That not all cops are evil racists.

That if you commit a crime the color of your skin should have no bearing on if you are charged.

That there is in fact no such thing as “white privilege”.

That “toxic masculinity” is an invention to make certain angry women feel better about themselves.

That “gender studies” are in fact nothing but political propaganda disguised as education.

That illegal aliens have no “right” to be here or to have access to our tax dollars though welfare or tax refunds from Earned Income or Child Tax credits.

That so called hate crimes laws (more appropriately named thought crimes) are in themselves expressions of hate.

That actual journalism is dead.

That the government and major corporations have no right to collect, mine and store all our data.

That a very large group of Americans are just fine with all of the above.

Boy could I go on and on and on…

Merely bringing these talking points up for consideration will mark me as the focus of evil in the modern world by every liberal and “conservative” swamp dweller that may read this. In fact, many so called conservatives will blast me for such “insensitive” thinking. In their desperation to gain the approval of their liberal “friends” they will attempt to portray themselves as understanding and tolerant by pointing out all the “errors” in my logic. In the end though, despite all their efforts to destroy, I mean correct me, those so called conservatives will still be hated by those same liberals they seek approval from.

I live in reality. I am not governed by my feelings but by simple, eternal truths. I screen my passions through the filter of my principles. I will always defend the truth, remembering what coach said, “Catch the ball, they are going to hit you anyways.”

Tolerance Equals Failure

I am an unusual person. By nearly every definition, today’s society/pop culture considers me irredeemably weird. I simply do not fit into any of their molds. I chuckle every time I think about that. As some examples consider the following.

I have been happily married to the same lovely young women for the last 32 years. I have never had an affair. I have worked for the same employer for 32 years. I held my part time tax job for 17 years. At work I show up on time and do more than expected of me. When I need to be somewhere I plan well enough that I do not need to race like some maniac loser to get to where I am going on time. When my gas guzzling Durango needed major repairs I paid the $1250 from my savings account. When I replace my car I buy well maintained used cars and pay them off as quickly as possible allowing me to sometimes go years without a car payment, not to mention the money I save on car insurance. When my daughter brought her new boyfriend over to meet me I took one look at the six pounds of metal protruding from his face, the six hundred tattoos, the pants desperately clinging to his hips and the gang colors he was wearing and told him to get the (insert colorful expletive here) out of my house. I gave up watching the sewer, aka network TV, including all the pay services, years ago and have never regretted it. I consciously refuse to subject myself to “popular” culture including music, music videos, most anything that comes out of hollywood today and 99% of anything at the supermarket checkout stand. I shop locally every chance I get. I actually read real books. I have never had, nor will I have, a twitter account. I only spend about two hours a week on facebook, mostly to play a couple of games I like. I have no body piercings or tattoos (which really makes me weird as I was the only enlisted man on my ship with no tattoos). I am religiously observant. I do not depend on anyone for anything I can do myself. Even worse, I expect others to be as responsible as I am.

In today’s culture all these traits mark me as a white privileged, right wing, intolerant, homophobic racist. They are mostly wrong of course. I say mostly because I am intolerant of many things, for example racism or political correctness or religious intolerance or, as in the case of black lives matter or antifa, outright hate. As one of my heroes once said I also, “Don’t much care for quitters.”

As I look out at the world my grand kids are taking their first tentative steps into I fear for them greatly. I place the source of that fear squarely on the shoulders of “tolerance.” That will seem an odd thing to say to many who read this. Never the less it is so and I’ll tell you why.

We tolerate the hatred spewed by black lives matter to make up for something no one alive was responsible for and no one alive participated in.

We tolerate the near mindless violence of antifa instead of arresting them and locking them away to show that violence for the sake of violence should never be tolerated.

We tolerate every childish temper tantrum thrown by immature college students instead of demonstrating that rules are meant to be followed and that changing the rules requires a process to be followed and that everyone’s rights to be considered.

We tolerate the abuse of language itself by calling illegal aliens undocumented migrants, welfare dependency compassion, abortion women’s health and referring to illegal aliens “constitutional” rights. For all you public school graduates the rights enumerated in the Constitution apply only to U.S. citizens and you don’t get citizenship simply because you managed to get cross the border.

We tolerate the abuse of the individual by major corporations, Google and Firefox as examples, as well as massive federal, state and local government overreach in the name of political correctness.

We tolerate a death worshiping cult that still practices slavery, child abuse, rape, animal abuse, murder and genocide in the name of tolerance. Yes I am referring to islam and I know these things because I study current events in moslem controlled countries and have read the only two books moslems read, the koran and the hadith. You should read them as well. Even more sad is that while we make constant excuses for an evil ideology posing as a religion we allow constant attacks on Christianity by anyone whose feelings are hurt.

We tolerate the massive and total failure of the public education system even as we throw more and more money into that tragically flawed system. My grandchildren were not taught American history to any level of proficiency but can readily name all “52 genders.” Given the product turned out I would have to say that many teachers and administrators are vastly overpaid.

We tolerate constant abuse by the homersexual and so called “transgender” gaystapo. They seek not to engender compassion but the complete and utter destruction of anyone that does not fully endorse their lifestyle of risky behaviors. Personally I don’t care if you want to place an excrement covered penis in your mouth but I am not going to let you define such an act as an act of love, let alone normal. I don’t care if some guy wants to wear a dress and makeup but you have no right to be in my granddaughters bathroom or locker room. I don’t care if you were feeling like a girl when I called you sir, you don’t get to sue or harass me because I “misgendered” you. Nor do any of these behaviors qualify you for special rights. The fact that a handful of gay activists took over the American Psychiatric Association and voted to eliminate homersexuality from the diagnostic manual does not mean these behaviors are in fact normal.

We tolerate the massive invasion of our country by anyone who can get here, including vile gang members who have “relatives” here. We tolerate billions of our hard earned tax dollars given to illegal aliens that could be better spent on our veterans, or our homeless, or our mentally ill or even our infrastructure.

We tolerate the erasure of history by hate mongers.

We tolerate judicial tyranny.

We tolerate lying career extortionists, uhm, I mean politicians.

We tolerate a proven beyond a doubt fake media.

I could go on but I think you are beginning to see my point. Tolerance can be a beautiful thing but tolerance can also be a powerful weapon. Americans are nearing the point where we are about to “tolerate” ourselves out of the rights we asserted in the formation of our country. We are nearly at the point where we will “tolerate” the world out of the greatest, most productive, most inventive and most compassionate country in human history. Abraham Lincoln is supposed to have said that in the course of history, “we will be remembered in spite of ourselves.” If we are not careful I think we will be remembered as the generation that fully embraced the most avoidable tragedy in human history.
