Sometimes You Gotta Play Hurt

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.

Liberals Democrats Progressives Are Liars By Choice

Liberals, democrats and progressives (there is virtually no distinction between the three) have been telling anyone who would listen just what they are for the last sixty years. People like me have been calling them out, nearly always as lone voices in the wilderness. Not until the arrival of the internet and now, “alternative media” (a term intended to belittle) have we had a platform that extended beyond the range of our voices. I, and many of you who read this, make use of this platform now. This is as it should be. Since the left is unrelenting in its desire to destroy America as it was founded, so must we be relentless in Americas defense.

No longer in control of what you and I see and hear the left has only one weapon left, the big lie. (They also love intimidation but that is another article) It is a weapon they employ with wild eyed and often reckless abandon. No subject is safe from the big lie but lets limit ourselves to one for the moment.

Consider the most famous holiday established by a liberal democrat progressive who hacked to death his girlfriend, Earth Day. How many lies must be believed to support this killer and his environmental agenda? More than I am willing to contemplate yet the effort on the “green” side has been going on for a long time.

On that first Earth Day in 1970, George Wald, a Harvard biologist breathlessly promised that civilization would end “within 15 or 30 years.” Um, hello George, have you looked around lately?

Deservedly forgotten Democratic Senator Gaylord Nelson, also in 1970, grimly informed us that within 25 years 75% to 80% of all animals on Earth would be extinct. Given the number of critters that routinely patrol my three quarters of an acre I’m going to have to disagree with you there Gaylord.

Former science adviser to the Kenyan little Barry John Holdren, in a 1971 ecology textbook, promised that 1 billion would die because of famines by the year 2020 because of a “new ice age.” Odd, it has been in the 90’s here all week, just like last year and the year before that and the year before that and, well I’m sure you get the point.

In 1972 The Club of Rome warned us that the Earth would be out of oil by 2003. Funny thing is that 2016 estimated oil reserves currently stand at 1,707 billion barrels. When I filled up my gas guzzling Dodge Durango RT (the one with the really big V8 engine) this morning I paid $2.28 a gallon. It’s not the .32 cents a gallon I remember as a kid but it’s not intolerable either.

Not to be outdone, so called population expert Paul Ehrlich warned that by the year 2000 England would not exist. As a proof of concept he wrote the manifestly discredited book The Population Bomb. I’m going to give Paul a halfsie here. England may not long exist but it is dying of moslem political correctness not environmental excess. There is not much great in great Britain any longer.

And so it has continued every day since. A non stop denial of reality by eco fascists that has lasted, if you use the first Earth Day as a measuring point, for 47 years. How many people will believe a lie that has been told to them for 47 years?

Apparently a lot. Consider South Australia. People who live there now suffer through routine blackouts and energy prices that have exploded to unimaginable levels. Energy prices are at levels now that wipe out savings and crush businesses. Remember, Australia is a first world country. I know, I have been there. Their suffering is needless. The entire country is fossil fuel rich.

Safely ensconced in their air conditioned, red wood decked homes the government has hijacked its people into third world status to show just how virtuous they are. The suffering of their people, the number of birds and bats chewed up by their wind turbined idols to political correctness, are completely irrelevant. They care more than you do about the planet. Get over it already.

I am using the environmental positions of democrats, liberals and progressives to illustrate that lying in the face of evidence, no matter how incontrovertible, is second nature to them. The subject of the lie is irrelevant. Big oil, big pharma, big candy, the Iraq war, gun control, religious intolerance of Christians, republican/Russian collusion, islam, abortion and a hundred others are simply a means to an end. The only thing that matters to them is the path to complete control over you and your life.

At this point the observant reader will say that sailor, you are painting with a very broad brush. While I agree there are some liberals, progressives and democrats who are sincerely seeking only the best for themselves and the planet, it has to be pointed out that these people are a minority. Let us not forget that for the better part of sixty years the big lies have been promoted from college on down, from hollywood to the so called news media.

It is this cadre of “intellectuals” that seek to manage our daily lives in the most minute detail. To reach their objective they need a lot of foot soldiers. College, for the last fifteen years or so, has existed primarily to provide supplemental cannon fodder for the left. Unions with their shrinking membership are no longer able to do it all. The left now has two full generations of often well meaning but completely misguided “college educated” activists. (Now you know why they insist on everyone getting a free college education) I’m sure you know them. They carry a mattress on their back to indict an innocent student or they barge into a restaurant and stage a bloody beheading in front of little kids. They call for “muscle” to remove journalists from their rallies, demand racially segregated “safe” spaces and white free days on campus. They see white marble as racist and black thugs as victims. What should frighten, wrong word, terrify everyone is that these people are not considered out of the mainstream in liberal, progressive democratic thought.

These are the people who have to check in with the Ministry of Truth everyday to find out what they believe. Facts bounce off these people the way job offers bounce off welfare queens. The proper position of anyone listening to a liberal, progressive or democrat is outright skepticism, after you finish laughing in their faces. Just remember these people have no sense of humor and they hate you. If you have to be around them I recommend extreme caution and carrying pepper spray.

Civil War?

Patrick Henry said it best: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”There was a real man. Sadly, no one plodding through the politically correct indoctrination known as public education over the last twenty years even knows this hero’s name.

After the he who shall remain nameless scum was foiled in his assassination attempt on republican house members, democrats reluctantly participated in a thirty second illusion of “unity” for public consumption. Having no use for such theater of the mind, liberals and progressives went into hyperactive assault mode. The twitter sewer was awash in human debris awarding various forms of the medal of honor to their cowardly assassin and legions of merit to themselves for their ability to demonstrate what human refuse looks and sounds like. Liberals, democrats and progressives own this loser lock, stock and barrel. We must never let them forget that.

The evil liberal, progressive democrat who did this was, sadly, not an evil person to far to many of those who support his agenda. He was “braver” than most because he was willing to engage in “direct action” against the “focus of evil in the modern world.” In the world of today’s modern liberal progressive democrat, this vile mental pygmy was quite mainstream in his thinking. A majority of his fellow travelers (yes I chose that term specifically but am going to make you do your own homework as to its meaning) do not believe he went far enough. Given sufficient courage they very well might try to finish what he started.

I used to believe that most people, as a general rule, can only be pushed so far. There are those rare times when some moron has to continue pushing you beyond your limits, making conflict virtually inevitable. And no, he who shall not be named was in no such situation. That he may have thought he was is nothing more than him accepting a fallacious construct provided to him by an endless repetition of baseless charges by the lunatics he choose to believe in. Therein lies their responsibility.

By nature and nurture I am a peace-loving person. Even so, having traveled the world, studied history and the human condition and our founding fathers, as well as the documents that founded this great country, there are clearly some things worth fighting for and against. No lie is worth killing innocent people for. To bad he who shall not be named, as well as those who support him, never knew that bullets are poor substitutes for ballots.

Progessivism and liberalism are twin cancers that consume not only their advocates but the very society that initially supports them. It is true that both forms of tyranny will vastly enrich an extremely small percentage of the population but your average liberal, progressive does not see himself as the cannon fodder he is. He is blinded by thoughts of power, position, prestige and riches. That these will, should he be able to attain them, be purchased by the blood, sweat, tears and sometimes even the lives of his fellow citizens, means nothing to him. He is more virtuous, more intelligent and more deserving than you.

Consider the depths to which liberals, progressives and democrats have willingly sunk.

The city of Minneapolis’s website reports the city has set up a “hot line” for residents to report suspected hate crimes, including “speech and actions.” The city says it wants to target “harassing behaviors motivated by prejudice.” According to a local newspaper, the Star Tribune, “the announcement comes amid signs of a recent surge of such incidents affecting Muslims and Jews across the country, many of which go unreported.” I guess the Star Tribune seeks to become the local star chamber of justice. Or perhaps it is their ESP that allows them to know just how many “hate crimes” go “unreported” in the area. According to the city’s Department of Civil Rights (a liberal wet dream if there ever was one and worth about as much) it only enforces hate crimes against certain “protected classes.” Looks like hating white working class Americans will clearly be tolerated in Minneapolis. A city grand poohbah confirmed ordinary citizens fears that the hot line will be used to persecute them by reiterating that the main motivation for the hate-crimes hot line had been the election of President Trump. Apparently, the tolerantly hateful city official added that the hot lines targets would be Trump supporters. Wouldn’t it be great if every normal, sane person everywhere in the country called this number and reported the city and its evil minions as perpetrators of hate crime? As a public service, here is the number, 612-673-3000.
A hot line might have come in handy when Phil Montag, the co-chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party’s technology committee and caring, tolerant liberal progressive said the following, “That motherfucker, the one that was shot…. this motherfucker, like his whole job is like to get people, to convince Republicans to fucking kick people off fucking health care.” “I hate this motherfucker. I’m glad he got shot, I’m glad he got shot. I’m not going to fucking say that in public,” he clarified. In case there was any doubt about how he really felt he finished up with, “I wish he was fucking dead.” Given his affinity for the word “like” in his sick rant one simply has to ask, does he identify as a valley girl? Valley girl man eventually gave a half hearted “don’t want anyone killed” none apology but no one should doubt that his real feelings remain unchanged. His only real regret is that his rant was caught on video.

Sadly, none of this is new. The human debris known as Phil Montag is just following the lead of scum like the new black panthers. In an August 2013 hate filled diatribe, Samir Shabbaz of the new black panthers told his followers that, “You’re going to have to kill some of these babies, just born three seconds ago … go into the god damned nursery … and just kill everything white in sight.” If blacks want to be free he told them, they needed to start bombing white churches and “[burning] up some cracker white supremacy”

Nor do liberals, progressives and democrats limit them selves by age. In January of this year, a preschool teacher and black lives matter terrorist in the liberal workers paradise of Seattle called for reparations and the confiscation by blacks of white owned property. To make certain that any preschoolers listening understood what she meant she specified, “We need to start killing people. Fuck white supremacy, fuck the U.S. Empire.”

Not to be outdone, illegal aliens in the hundreds showed up at a recent city council meeting in Cudahy, California demanding that white supremacists go back to Europe. It is telling that there was no fear of ICE by the criminals endorsed and supported by the once great state of California.

These are a small sample of what liberals, progressives and democrats are willing to say and do to us ordinary working class Americans who simply disagree with them. They do not consider these words or actions to especially out of line. In the arena of ideas they are bankrupt. Terror is the only weapon they have left and they are not only willing to use it on you and me but our leaders as well.

Wendi Wright, stalked Rep. David Kustoff and tried to run him off the road. She went so far as to reach inside his car after running him off the road. If she had been armed David Kustoff might not be alive today.
A Tucson, Ariz. school district employee threatened to shoot Rep. McSally and told her to “be careful” because her days “were numbered.”
On the day Steve Scalise was shot New York Rep. Claudia Tenney received an email telling her, “One down, 216 to go.”
Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner received five death threats in the weeks before the Scalise assassination attempt. Wagner reports that protesters had been, “vandalizing my home, showing up with masks and gravestones, and laying down on my driveway and drawing chalk outlines of dead bodies. Picketing my church at 8 and 10 o’clock Mass.”
Virginia Rep. Tom Garrett reported a series of death threats in May that police believed to be credible. One message said, “This is how we’re going to kill your wife,” while other messages detailed how his children and his dog would be killed.

Rep. Steve Stivers reported the following message, “We’re coming to get every goddamn one of you and your families. Maybe the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or even you,” the peace loving, tolerant liberal threatened.

On the show Fox and Friends, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz played a voicemail he had received recently. “I suggest you prepare for the battle motherfucker, and the apocalypse,” the caller, unable to contain his tolerance, was yelling. “Because we are going to hunt your ass down, wrap a rope around your neck, and hang you from a lamppost.”
Rep. Ted Yoho reported his office being vandalized by protesters. Not to be outdone by the vandals a female constituent left a promise on an answering machine in his office, “Next time I see you, I’m going to beat your fucking ass.”
None of this is considered out of line by the likes of Nancy (the master legislator) Pelosi, the Kenyan little Barry, Dingy Harry Reid, up Chuck Schumer, James the 8 foot liar Comey, the once great NY Times, the fake news networks CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, PMSNBC, PBS or their support groups like the unable to moveon, powder puff salon, participation trophy waving huffing and puffington post, spiteful people for the un american way or the teat that supports them all, George Soros.
I do not look forward to a civil war. I see little if any good coming out of such a tragedy, even if, as I suspect, we conservatives win. Despite our compassion afterwards, those wounds will take decades to heal.

Progressives, liberals and democrats have no such compunctions though. They are engaged in the civil war here and now. They insist on importing moslem terrorists and ms-13 gang members as fast as possible. They reward massive illegal immigration with your tax dollars while vilifying you for questioning that. They venerate cop killers and support groups like black lies matter in their demands for reparations and special, skin color based privileges. They demand acceptance and promotion of utterly bizarre lifestyles (gays trans etc) to everyone including five year olds while assaulting you for pointing out the demonstrable danger of such policies. They create red herrings like white privilege and social justice to keep John Stewrats trained seal audience in line.

Progressives, liberals and democrats have one quality it would be foolish to dismiss. They never, ever give up. Couple this with their perverse admiration of the “by any means necessary” philosophy of political advancement and you should be worried. To anyone who doubts that we are in a civil war I can only offer two words, “hunt republicans.

Liberals, Democrats And Hate

As I write this Representative Steve Scalise is fighting for his life and several others are in the hospital with gunshot wounds. Today the Kenyan smiles and my filter is off. Prepare to be offended.

The Bernie Sanders supporter, Rachael “Madcow” Maddow follower, who shall forever remain nameless in anything I write, is dead. Good for him. This perpetual loser, a key constituent class of the liberal democratic party, got off easy here. Right now I expect he is desperately wishing some adults had intervened in his life much earlier. Now face to face with God, I suspect this intellectual never was is finding out just how empty his life was and how easily and completely he was made a fool of. Standing in His presence there is no escape from the consequences of your life, thoughts, words and deeds. Indeed, the emptiness of everything this alleged human believed must now be crushingly, overwhelmingly painful. Again, good for him.

As the wretched human refuse, spawned by the sick liberal ideology he worshiped, spins, prevaricates and attempts to define what the meaning of “is” is to justify his earthly evil to He who saw everything, I can not help but contemplate just how well received his actions will be received here by his fellow terrorists, sorry, liberals.

There will be the prerequisite “coming together” and “condemnation” of “senseless” tragedy. I suspect it will last all of thirty seconds. Can anyone say the Punk Terry (guns make people kill people) MacCauliffe? Given the number of armed guards that constantly surround him one has to wonder why he doesn’t look like Swiss cheese.

I refuse to participate in the sewer known as Twitter but I know people who do and the filth that emerged instantly after this tragedy would and should, make normal, sane people sick. Everyone celebrating this sick bastard on Twitter needs to be identified and thoroughly investigated.  Expecting Twitter to suddenly develop a sense of decency and respectability and remove/report this garbage is asking to much, they are liberals there one and all.

Black lives matter more than yours will doubtlessly be irritated at having to take several seconds from their celebration of the attempted murder of two Capitol Police officers to “express” their “concern” over the event. Lets be honest here, blm’s only concern is that not enough cops and republicans were killed. Louie Farrakhan sadly had to report to the mothership that not enough “pigs” and white people were killed. Rest assured, he is working on that.

The media, complicit to a massive degree because of their constant dehumanizing of republicans, conservatives and law enforcement, will bend over backwards to paint this loser as a “right wing gun nut”. The overwhelming evidence that he was a brave liberal social justice warrior will be overlooked everywhere. Many in the media will find themselves conflicted, ie glad it happened but worried about how much damage their ideology may suffer. Secretly they will be envious of what this loser was able to accomplish. Media types are to soft and lazy, to self centered, self important and worried about getting the correct cocktail party invites to actually do what he did. Still, they both respect the losers “opinion” and will “regret” the way he chose to express it. If only republicans were not so evil they will say. If you look closely you will see their damage control efforts moving into maximum overdrive.

Hollywood I expect is in an agony of doubt. Does this piece of human refuse deserve a posthumous Oscar or a Tony? Does he get a “Best Performance” or “Best Special Effects” award? What about a lifetime achievement award? Does the sound of gunfire qualify for best soundtrack? Who gets to write the made for TV movie showing just how “brave” and “normal” this scum was for defending liberalism? Madonna is no doubt wishing she could have oral sex with this loser. Jim Carrey is likely dreaming of changing his golf club for a rifle at this very moment. I imagine Cathy Griffin engraving this losers name on her knife as we speak.

Unable to win in the arena of ideas, democratic senators, while practicing their crocodile tears for TV, are no doubt contemplating how to get this scums mug on Mount Rushmore or at least in their next fundraising letter. Democrat representatives in the house are in silent mourning at the loss of as many as twenty five potential new seats in the chamber and the incumbent damage such a swing could have allowed them to accomplish.

Don’t get me started on the absolute sewage that constitutes so much of academia today. Today’s college graduates cannot think but know all 92 genders. When not playing with play dough in their safe space because someone said the word republican or conservative, they are mastering the art of censoring speech and attacking normal people. Like the rifle wielding scum that prompted this article, the “professors” that indoctrinate our young will continue their evil until stopped. They have no fear of losing their jobs because so many parents have been indoctrinated concerning the “value” of a college degree. So, how is that masters in feminine studies working for you and yes, I would like fries with that. Just send your kid to join ISIS and be done with it. It is much cheaper and far more intellectually honest.

Make no mistake, this was a targeted assassination attempt. That someone would do such a thing is sick. Those who would minimize/support/honor such an action are simply evil. No other conclusion is possible.

Congressman Roger Williams said “The thin blue line held today.” Against such constant, concerted and undiluted hatred and vitriol from so many directions one has to wonder just how much longer it can.

San Jose and the Value of Social Justice

I have always found “social justice” to be, politely put, a bizarre concept. A theory that would require me to pay reparations to blacks just because I was born “white” simply cannot stand the test of reason. Never mind that I am a first generation American whose family comes from Germany and Spain or that no black person alive today has been victimized by institutionalized, government sanctioned slavery (aside from the government sugar daddy welfare types that is but that is another story for another time) in living memory.

One of the more curiouser and curiouser (to quote Alice) concepts to ooze out of the “social justice” quagmire is the so called sanctuary city. The “social justice” warriors claim the compassionate moral high ground by granting special status and protections to people who have already broken the law and often openly admit their racial preferences and refusal to assimilate into American culture. As an aside, why is someone deserving of the title “warrior” when they are almost always immune to the consequences of their actions?

Some time ago, exactly how long escapes me, the wise and benevolent city fathers of San Jose, California refused to apply the law to a Stanford swimmer for raping an incapacitated woman. The social justice crowd that day reasoned the rape victims rights were far less important than skippys career. This seemed odd to me. As a life long observer of the delusional left I waited in vain for the feminists to either crucify skippy the rapist or the “leaders” who gave him what was essentially a pass. Instead, crickets. After the Clinton years I suppose rape is only a crime when a conservative or republican is the perpetrator or Lena Dunham is the victim. Although I suppose having sex with her would be punishment enough.

Fast forward to just recently. Setting, again the liberal socialist workers paradise of San Jose. This time instead of rape it is an ongoing case of seemingly severe spousal abuse. The perp, an immigrant from India who obviously never heard of a fellow named Ghandi. The victim, the thug’s wife. Apparently, having been much and frequently abused by this “tolerant”, “peace loving” immigrant who only wanted to “better his life” she recorded one of his abuse sessions on her cell phone. Then she had the unmitigated gall to turn the thug into the police.

You dear reader could be forgiven for thinking you knew the outcome of this tragic situation, ie the law exercises its duty to protect and defend. The lowlife wife beater spends five years in prison (perhaps serving as a wife himself) then gets sent back to India to study the writings of that Ghandi guy. As I always told the students in my basic tax preparation class, “Be careful applying reason where it is not warranted.” As in the swimmer case before, reason was abandoned for the power of the dark side.

Assistant District Attorney Steve Fein was assigned to prosecute the case. What he did instead was allow the wife beater to plead to an “accessory after the fact” charge. This is the highest charge that could be leveled without running the risk of wife beater being deported. DA Fein told the press that his boss Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen, tries to avoid such deportations. Really?

I can’t help but wonder, what’s the magic here? Do these “social justice warriors” like wife beaters? Or do they only like immigrant wife beaters? How can these two alleged men, Fein and Rosen be considered anything but the embodiment evil after such callous behavior? What other possible explanation for their actions can there be? Anyone who votes for them now is, like the wife beater, an accessory after the fact in every crime committed by the thugs these two mollycoddle.

This is a clear case of the “value” of “social justice” or how to make yourself feel better at the expense of others. Living in their doubtlessly gated communities “social justice warriors” like Fein, Rosen and their ilk will never have to come face to face with the thugs they allow to run amok in the communities they are sworn to protect and defend. In the social justice world an immigrant wife beater is far to important to “sacrifice” over some clearly racist and intolerant women. Perhaps even more sad is the fact that many of the future victims of these same thugs buy into the social justice nonsense spouted by Fein and Rosen types. Bizarre indeed.

As I finish up here I can not give the media a pass on this one. It seems their only concern was how dare the “rich” and “successful” victim record her beating! Surely she was guilty of a crime by recording him beat her without his permission. On the whole they presented the outcome here as justice at its finest. I wonder if any of the heartless media “social justice warriors” will feel even a pang of guilt should, as far to often happens, the wife beater kills his wife and/or kids? I doubt it. These wannabe humans have traded their souls for the ability to signal to the world their “virtue” over the great unwashed. Truly the so called media has much to answer for.

To even the most simple minded observer it is clear that in San Jose your immigration status is far more important than the law. Mexican drug lords and ISIS terrorists must be salivating at the thought of their newfound safe haven. Fein, Rosen and their media accomplices have sent the message loud and clear. In San Jose, if you are an “immigrant”, there are few crimes that will get you deported, unless you get caught voting republican. In that case you are screwed.

On Conversing With Liberals

With tax season coming to a close I finally get a moment to think about something other than taxes. It’s only one day off, the calm before the storm, in more ways than one, but it allows me a moment to write. For that I am grateful.

In my three jobs I get to know/work with many kinds of people. Even here in the supposed conservative bastion of Utah liberals run free. Sadly, the once great city of Salt Lake may be lost forever. The public education system here has much to answer for.

While working one of my jobs Mr. X, I’ll call him that to respect his privacy, and I were having a brief chat about freedom in general. He routinely claims to love freedom then says things like the NSA is welcome to spy on him all they want. While I doubt Mr. X has much to hide, his caviler attitude towards domestic warrantless spying is troubling to those of us who truly love freedom. In fact he ended his participation in the conversation by stating flatly that if “you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.” Right, and work sets you free.

During another recent conversation about how moslems were taking over certain places in America (I referred to Dearborn, Michigan specifically) and refusing, in general, to assimilate I was especially surprised by his attitude on two counts. Remember, he considers himself the voice of reason and says he loves freedom.

First, since he hadn’t heard about this from “the news” he didn’t believe it. I was, he intimated, making this stuff up. I told him the facts are readily apparent if one is willing to spend a few minutes on the internet. He “doubted very much” that the moslems in Dearborn were implementing sharia law. Besides, even if they did that was “their business”. I found that statement quite curious given his frequent rantings against religious people for “forcing their religion” down his throat. Mr. X was totally fine with moslems taking over Dearborn, MI but is furious that the “Mormons, right here” in “his” home state deny him “right after right”. As a Mormon who has never denied anyone a constitutionally protected right (and I don’t know any Mormons who would) I asked what rights he was being denied. The only answer he could come up with was how happy he was when the Olympics were in Salt Lake City. He walked around downtown Salt Lake City with a beer in his hands because he could. Oh the inhumanity of being denied open beer carry on public streets! So I guess, based on his own testimony, it is far more important to be able to “piss off” Mormons by open carrying a beer on the streets of Salt Lake City than it is to deny moslems the “right to their culture” even though their culture includes things like honor killings and female genital mutilation.

Secondly, I was surprised at just how fast he played the race card on me. Apparently noticing these things, or maybe pointing these things out in public, makes me a racist. (There would be little point trying to explain that islam is not a race, the race card is to valuable an asset to allow to be sidetracked by something as irrelevant as the truth) Mr. X, having lost this argument once before (when I pointed out and he denied that the Kenyan ever said republicans were welcome to work with him as long as we went to the back of the bus) should have known better. Apparently his cognitive dissonance got the better of him. At this point I felt the massively unjustified need to defend myself. I told Mr. X that his belief in said events was not required for them to be true. As for calling me a racist I pointed out that I work on a daily basis with three black men and that my best friend in the whole world is hispanic. These facts I continued present no problems to me at all but rendered his attack shallow, uninformed and pedantic. I admit I threw the last word in simply because I knew he would have no idea what it meant. A little confusion can be a wonderful thing to watch.

Needless to say, our “friendship” is now reduced to a much more formal working relationship. As sad as that is, that is his choice. I don’t play that kind of game as I have no problem defending my beliefs. I don’t make stuff up or deny reality. Forty year old five year olds do though. In some cases they do routinely.

I guess the point of all this is just to point out that this is how liberals/progressives think or, more properly, refuse to think. They are so focused on their virtue signaling that the truth becomes an impediment to them constructing their self image. There are far to many Mr. X’s out there who live comfortable but majorly deluded lives. They surround themselves with like minded dispensers of “reason”, “justice” and “compassion” resulting in an often impenetrable bubble of self righteous cognitive dissonance. Which, when you think about it, is highly ironic. They suffer from the very condition, often much more severely, than the “religious” people they like to label as self righteous, insensitive and bigoted.

It has been my sad experience of the last forty years that there is virtually no way to breach the walls of self absorbed virtue that encapsulate most people like Mr. X. Until someone drops him into one of the many no go zones in Dearborn and he physically experiences the foulness of islam up close and personal he will never “get it.”

As a supporter of gay marriage I hope Mr. X never has to witness a gay man being thrown from the roof of a ten story building in the name of islam. I fear though that something like that is the only thing that will breach the wall he has surrounded himself with. Yet people like him consider people like me unreasonable. How sad.

Facebook, Guns and The Liberal Mindset

I only recently got my computer back. Seems my eight year old hard drive finally gave up the ghost. I took the opportunity to go on my Facebook page. Yes, I stayed off Facebook the whole three weeks I was computerless, you should try it. Anyway one of the first posts I see was in response to the Florida shooting. One of the people on my “friends” list posted a cartoon showing Wayne La Perrier and a brutish looking man labeled “Guns Inc” dragging a massive bag of profits, standing amid a sea of bloody bodies. The cartoonist has a smiling Wayne saying “Fortunately guns don’t kill people.” The cartoon, misleading as it was, generated an interesting exchange on my wall.

RJ is the individual on my “friends” list. I knew him casually through our employer. After hearing him wax semi eloquently on the glories and accomplishments of Sir Hillary Clinton I realized discretion was the better part of valor and basically avoided him. I never try to start an argument with liberals but I will not shy away either.

The exchange serves as a classic example of how liberals operate. I have recorded the entire thread/ conversation, word for word below. I will only use the participants initials to accord them anonymity. My comments are italicized.

Commenting on the cartoon;

M B: Be sure to list all the abortions too R J. All the drunk drivers that kill daily. All the drug companies. I could go on and on.

I don’t know MB but I know RJ and I don’t doubt he supports abortion on demand. I have to admit I’m not sure how drunk drivers or drug companies fit into the gun control debate. I wish he had gone on just long enough to make the connection for me.

R J: I’m not posting this pic to start up any mean spirited dialogue–keep your hate to yourselves.

Really? Linking the NRA to mass murder isn’t mean spirited? The direct implication that gun manufacturers use murder to profit isn’t mean spirited? What then was your purpose for posting this cartoon, a demonstration of compassion? Notice the knee jerk reflex to classify perceived disagreement as hate.

M B: R J what do you call this picture? It’s pure hate toward gun owners. Your such a hipocrit.

Unless you are a rabid gun control fanatic MB’s description of the cartoon is spot on.

RJ: I’m a gun owner myself asshole–now leave me alone and stay the fuck off MY FACEBOOK page

Now doesn’t this just make everyone feel better? RJ owns a gun and knows some four letter words. I guess RJ means he is the right “type” of gun owner? He reflexively turns to the liberal lexicon, ie profanity, to make his point. Let’s not forget, it’s his Facebook page, how dare you dissent.

Not to be out done in demonstrating his liberal bona fides DT joins the fray.

DT: MB: No abortion has ever killed a room full of people.

Lets admit it, this is a brilliant misdirection. DT has clearly memorized his talking points. I can almost imagine DT biting his lower lip while “tearing up” for the camera. I suppose he has a technical point, you couldn’t fit tens of millions of dead babies even in Michael Moores pantry. I suppose in DT’s world killing babies is fine as long as a gun isn’t used.

Unaware of RJ’s intellectual superiority, another commentator dares to chime in.

GHZ: We have reached the point in this country where stats and body counts are the things that make headlines, not the tragedy itself, like each event is to challenge or outdo the last one, ie: Worst in American history, the most children killed in America, the worst theater shooting in America, etc, etc. Since when do we gloat over our history of violence in this country like we are giving out Oscars for Best Picture? We need to grow up, get pissed off, and stop this carnage from happening, before it becomes just a byline.

Like it or not, GHZ has a point, from the media’s perspective. A long time maxim in the media is, “If it bleeds it leads.” Gun deaths are reported by the “mainstream media” in horse race fashion and have been since they jumped on the gun control bandwagon en mass. GHZ is correct, we need to find a way to stop this kind of violence but I suspect we would disagree on the methods to do so.

RJ: Then let it stop with u GHZ–your hate speech today has been horrific.

Hate speech? Horrific? Seriously? It seems GHZ has hit a nerve here. Having sold some articles to one of the supermarket tabloids, RJ fancies himself a member of that precious media. He simply cannot deal with the facts here. Again, notice the reflexive invocation of “hate speech.” Exactly what was hateful or horrific in GHZ’s post?

GHZ: The media loves the sensationalism. It sells advertising space, and newspapers. It is a sick morbid obsession.

Sadly, GHZ has a point here too. Like Piers Morgan standing on the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims or the perky Katie Curic deceptively editing her gun control “documentary”, the media will stoop to any low to get their agenda across. It is a fact proven by its perpetrators almost daily.

RJ: Well then that should give u something to read while you’re incarcerated! Now, as I told u earlier, leave me alone.

Well alrighty then. A fine example of liberal tolerance here RJ. I mean, how dare these peasants, having been labeled as haters by the all knowing you, continue to address his highness. Apparently it is now criminal to disagree with Sir RJ. Oh, and you peasants need to stop it with the reality stuff, it messes up RJ’s carefully constructed fantasy world. Besides, I’m certain the Enquirer is desperately trying to get him to finish his article on how black lesbian platypus are being discriminated against by local Christian zoo keepers.

Yes I am picking on RJ. Remember, I know him. For the millions of folks like RJ, this is what passes as intelligent debate on gun control or any other subject. How sad is that?
