The Ugliness of Their Goodness

No one screams about their tolerance, goodness and basic decency louder, longer or with more ferocity than a committed liberal/democrat/progressive. No one cares more than they do about the important issues of the day. Whether its gun control or tolerance, they simply know better than you do in every account. Having placed themselves on the pedestal of humanistic Demi Godhood it is simply not allowed, or even comprehensible, why us knuckle dragging neanderthals in flyover country should question the results of their policies.
Liberal/democrats/progressives or, as I know them, the party of hate, know no bounds when it comes to signaling their virtue over the likes of regular working Americans. If that regular working American happens to be a veteran, well, he is screwed. Allow me to introduce you to Simeon D. Mokhiber.

(Full disclosure time. As a licensed armed security officer of many years I have frequently come into contact with law enforcement. As a general rule LE does not like security. The most common reaction I get is polite indifference. Many times though it much closer to intolerance. That being said, I have met the rare officer who understands and accepts security as a valuable addition to public safety. In general I harbor no animosity to LE, even the one who pulled his gun on me when I was pulled over for having a headlight out. I was in uniform and informed the officer that I had just gotten off work and still had my sidearm on my duty belt. Of course I did not get the fix it ticket everyone else gets I had to pay dearly. Still, I try to give LE the benefit of the doubt but this case makes me wonder. That being said cops who cross the line get no sympathy from me at all.)

Mr. Mokhiber is a nine year Army veteran. He was part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, was a licensed armed security guard in the state of New York and had worked as an armed private security contractor in Iraq and Afghanistan. Did I mention he had no criminal record? Well now, courtesy of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, democrat liberal hate monger NY, this American hero is now a potential three time felon. So what exactly did this father of a disabled eight year old daughter do? Read on dear reader.

Back in April 2016 Mr. Mokhiber was pulled over for speeding. Despite being sober the police required him to perform field sobriety tests. Nothing to see here, yet. Apparently the cops took issue with Mr. Mokhiber’s request that the officers activate their body cameras. They proceeded to arrest him and without his permission or a warrant search his vehicle.

Let us take a pause here to examine what has happened so far. Speeding is hardly a federal offense and we have already established that Mr. Mokhiber had no criminal record. The fact is, by the time the cops began the sobriety tests they would have known Mr. Mokhiber had no criminal record and was, at worst, a low level threat. So why the arrest? Could it be the cops did not appreciate a “civilian” asking for his rights to be honored? Did the overwhelmingly liberal nature of the area play a role? Given that this happened in New York I fear that is highly probable. So at this point we have a highly suspect arrest, but lets continue.

The highly questionable search of Mr. Mokhibers’s vehicle produced a locked container. The container, opened without a warrant or Mr. Mokhiber’s permission, revealed three 17-round Glock handgun magazines. All three magazines were empty and there was no gun on Mr. Mokhiber or in his vehicle. As an aside Mr. Mokhiber is the owner of a licensed and registered handgun. So again, why the arrest?

Personally, I suspect it was a case of “badgeittude” getting out of control. Still, one cannot absolve the system that created the conditions that led to this travesty of justice. New York recently passed a law that makes possessing an “ammunition feeding device” capable of holding more than 10 rounds a felony. The penalty is a maximum of seven years in prison. Mr. Mokhiber, an Army veteran with no criminal record now faces up to 21 years in prison.

Doubtlessly, the gun control lunatics will celebrate this outrage as an outstanding achievement by law enforcement in their continuing efforts to “protect” us from marauding criminal elements. I have no doubt the politically correct police chief will much ballyhoo his officers courage under trying circumstances. You know, from a man who never posed a threat in the first place. Perhaps a presidential medal of honor is in order? Oh wait, the Kenyan moslem in chief isn’t in charge any more. Guess the hater in chief Cuomo will have to come up with something appropriate. May I suggest a couple of boxes of tissues? One for their tears of joy and one for our tears of sorrow. As for the officers who arrested Mr. Mokhiber and all those who participated in his prosecution the ugliness of your goodness is showing.

Unsatisfied with simply telling us what we can or cannot have liberals also perpetuate some deadly myths in the name of “tolerance”. We must, they say, be tolerant of the LGBTQXYZRTW crowd. Isn’t it obvious they bleat, staring blankly as they utter their “truth”, that there are at least 52 genders? What, they ask, is wrong with teaching two year olds that gender is a fluid concept? Or that Heather can have two mommies? Honestly, they say, given that NAMBLA only advocates tolerant loving relationships between men and young boys what could possibly be wrong with that? After all love trumps hate! From simple minds…..

Allow me to inject some reason into the “argument.”

In 2016 the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a study titled “Sexual Identity, Sex of Sexual Contacts, and Health Related Behaviors Among Students in Grades 9-12”. The results are tragic, sadly predictable and entirely unreported. I will only summarize its findings here.

The study compared two groups: students engaging in homersexual activity vs. students with no sexual contact.

Students engaging in homersexual activity were:

  • Eight times more likely to smoke
  • 47 times more likely to smoke frequently (20 or more cigarettes in the month prior to the survey)
  • Nearly three times as likely to have tried alcohol prior to age 13
  • Three and a half times as likely to be currently using alcohol
  • More than 11 times as likely to binge drink (10 or more drinks in a row)
  • Nearly six times as likely to be currently using marijuana
  • More than 16 times as likely ever to have used hallucinogenic drugs
  • More than 18 times as likely ever to have used cocaine
  • 30 times as likely ever to have used heroin
  • 23 times as likely ever to have used methamphetamines

None of this should come as a surprise to the average observer, you know, someone who doesn’t think in punchlines. (An average observer meaning someone who doesn’t get his/her information from the corrupt mainstream media, public school, ivy league colleges, left wing websites or late night so called comedy shows.) These results also tend to produce the ideal liberal/progressive/democratic voter, ie to drugged up, intellectually ignorant and to focused on his/her/its gender/genitals to think straight.

The CDC in 2014 also reported that homersexual men were much more likely to contract nearly every STD known. For any public school graduates reading this that means diseases like syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea. In 2014 homersexual behavior accounted for 75% of all cases of syphilis in the US. The CDC also notes that while homersexuals only make up approximately 2 percent of the population they make up 55 percent of all people living in the US with HIV. In fact, in 2014, homersexual men made up over two thirds of all new HIV case in the US.

In his groundbreaking book Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, Dr. Jeffrey Satinover notes that homersexuality often and far to frequently leads to:

  • A 25- to 30-year decrease in life expectancy
  • Chronic, potentially fatal, liver disease – infectious hepatitis, which increases the risk of liver cancer
  • Inevitably fatal immune disease including associated cancers
  • Frequently fatal rectal cancer
  • Multiple bowel and other infectious diseases
  • A much higher than usual incidence of suicide

In the face of such terrifying and continually mounting evidence liberals demand that these behaviors not only be accepted, glorified even, but be taught as early as preschool. Anyone who points out the obvious, that homersexuality is not normal and is in fact dangerous, must be destroyed. They must be destroyed personally, professionally and financially. Such is the liberal/progressive/democrat definition of tolerance.

These social justice warriors blindly believe that young children must be given the opportunity to experience gonorrhea up close and personal, must experience the joys of drug addiction and must have as many sexual partners as possible. This is beyond tragic because the “leaders” of these social justice warriors know everything I have just told you. Knowing the devastation that follows these “accepted” behaviors makes these “leaders” evil in its purest form.

Truly, the ugliness of their goodness is showing.

Ted, Donald and the Politics of Meaning

I spent some of the best years of my young life living in the great state of Texas. I learned to swim in Texas. I had my first high school crush (Theresa, 2nd period) in Texas. I played high school football in Texas. My grandfather and I watched his Dallas Cowboys play on TV nearly every Sunday. I helped my parents build a home on the shore of a small lake in Texas. I survived the great Texas heat wave of 63 consecutive days of over 100 degrees. I learned about respect in Texas when, at a funeral I saw everyone on the road pull to the shoulder to allow the procession to pass (even when the opposite traffic was on a divided highway). I learned to hunt, fish, shoot and camp in Texas. On a black and white TV set I watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon live with my grandfather in Texas. I learned how to wait alone at the end of the driveway for the school bus at seven am and about the care and feeding of cows on grandpas 10 acre farm. I guess you could say I was inculcated with Texas values at a young age.

I suspect I have much more in common with Senator Ted Cruz than a well-coifed billionaire.

The recent dust up, launched by the aforementioned well-coifed billionaire, between Cruz and Trump has helped me to understand a little more about the rich man wanting to be president. In a nutshell, he has become a first rate politician. Allow me to elaborate.

When Ted Cruz mentioned Donald’s “New York” values I instantly knew to what he was referring to. I suspect everyone did. The thing is, so did Trump. As a long time supporter and even funder of “New York” values Trump knew instinctively just how damaging his past record could be in the upcoming primaries. With Cruz closing fast or even leading in some of the upcoming primary polls Trump did what any consummate politician would do, he lied.

On stage, in front of a national audience, for just a moment, wrapping himself in the compassion of 9-11 in the way Bush II was always accused of, he displayed his liberal progressive core. In the process he also managed to insult the people of the other 49 states. During his doubtlessly focus group tested, liberal approved defense of “New York” values he carefully avoided mentioning anything relevant to Teds comment. I am going to set the record straight Donald. We in Texas could have “handled” 9-11 just as well as New York did. I expect the great Americans in every state would have responded to such an event just as magnificently as New Yorkers did. That kind of response is not just the “American” way. It is the human thing to do.

The artful dodge he offered on stage that night was revealing. I don’t mean that in a positive way. What his “emotional” monologue demonstrated was that he is now willing to use the establishment politicians favorite device, demagogic misdirection. And he did it sincerely, even effortlessly. The establishment GOP’ers must be much comforted. Strawberries McCain and Amnesty Graham must be consumed with jealousy. In one fell swoop he accomplished what their years of attacking conservatives could not give them, a fawning media.

Fact is though, Teds observation hit to close to home. Donald had to cover for a lifetimes devotion to the enemies of reason. He had to cover for his support of not just abortion but partial birth abortion, the single most hideous evil I can think of. He had to cover for his long-standing support of gay marriage. He had to cover for his fondness in exercising “eminent domain” in the pursuit of profit. He had to cover for his desire to put a radical pro-abortion zealot on the Supreme Court. He had to cover for the fact that he supported a governor who said in 2014 that pro-life, pro-Second Amendment conservatives “have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are’. He had to cover for the fact that he supported Mayor de Blasio, an avowed Marxist who honeymooned in Cuba (home of political prisoners and summary executions), raised money for the Sandinistas (terrorists) and turned his back on the N.Y.P.D. He had to cover a history of supporting a government run single-payer health care system, massive big bank bailouts and higher taxes. The list of his “transgressions” against reason is nearly endless and his conversion to conservatism is extremely recent so forgive me for doubting his sincerity. It smacks a little too much of a deathbed conversion to me.

Still, despite all my misgivings I like much of what Trump is saying. The difficulty I have with him as a “conservative” arises when I do a side by side comparison of his record against Ted’s record. Ted Cruz has never wavered in the things he believes in. He has been a tireless fighter for regular, non-billionaire types. Unlike everyone else running for the highest office in the land, with the possible exception of Dr. Carson, he actually understands the Constitution. I can’t seem to shake the idea that Trumps understanding of the Constitution is a lot like his understanding of Two Corinthians.

Is Ted perfect? Not exactly but his record as a conservative is much longer and far more consistent than Trumps. That means something.

Demands for Ted to apologize came swiftly. Ted did offer an apology and I think it was illustrative of his character. Rather than playing the “hurt feel bads” game of establishment media types he demonstrated where his concerns lay. I will let him speak for himself.

I apologize to the millions of New Yorkers who have been let down by liberal politicians in that state.

I apologize to the hard working men and women of the state of New York who have been
denied jobs because Governor Cuomo won’t allow fracking…

I apologize to all the pro-life and pro-marriage and pro-second amendment New Yorkers who were told by Governor Cuomo that they have no place in New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

I apologize to all the small businesses who have been driven out of New York city by
crushing taxes and regulations.

I apologize to the millions of unborn children, many African-American and Hispanic, whose lives have been taken by politicians who relentlessly promote abortion on demand with no limitations.

I apologize to all of the African-American children who Mayor de Blasio tried to throw out of their charter schools that were providing a lifeline to the American Dream.

Ted could have added so much more. He could have mentioned how New Yorkers cannot be trusted to buy the right size of soda. How New Yorkers must maintain safer working conditions for criminals by disarming the law abiding public. How New Yorkers believe teaching kids in kindergarten that homosexuality is normal. (sorry but this is not education this is recruiting for pedophiles) How New Yorkers support fining someone as much as $250,000 for “mis-genderizing” some pervert.

These are “New York” values. Trump not only knows it but has financed and supported them. It is only since he decided to run for president he has began speaking out against them. For that reason alone Trump has a lot to answer for.
