The Land Of The Lost

When I started writing this column a few years ago, I had an earnest hope that with logic and wit I could open the eyes and minds of the most ignorant among us. The problem I have discovered is that those I have been attempting to engage have neither logic nor wit. It’s infuriating, really. Oddly, my anger and frustration at Progs that I don’t personally know is turning into a kind of pitied sadness and boredom……..while my pity and tolerance for the Progressives I DO personally know is turning into angry frustration and apathy.

Well, I’m tired of giving to Lefties what they are incapable of giving to anyone else, namely a polite benefit-of-the-doubt…….and you should be too. I think maybe it’s best, in all honesty. Why have the demonstrably stupid philosophies of the college campus, the corporate “diversity” industry, and millennial groupthink infected every aspect of our society and discourse? I’ll tell you why……….because lefty progressives are shameless and loud in their stupidity. They are not quiet, respectful, and looking to debate their ideas on level ground. They actually believe they have the “right” to be as intolerant, ignorant, racist, and violent as they can be……because of all the “injustice” they have been brainwashed into thinking exists.

The defense of these under-developed and damaged people is that words and ideas they don’t agree with, or find offensive, are equal to violence and intolerance, and violence and intolerance require actions of elevated violence and intolerance as a response. See how that works? Kind of like saying, “punch a Nazi”, and then labeling everyone you don’t agree with as a “Nazi” and proceeding to punch them. Voila! Social Justice in action! If they say something that is offensive, rude, stupid, and not backed up by history and logic…….it’s ok because they (in their depression-med/ADHD-med shriveled brains) hold the moral high ground. Yet if you happen to mildly offend one of these creatures, a public apology and prostrate position are required.

  Even asking a question of one of these folks, or asking for details on one of their ridiculous positions sends them into a rage of stuttering, flop-sweated retorts of “racist!”, “bully!”, or the worst thing they can think of to say……”privileged white man!”. The problem is that I do have questions for the Progressives and I can’t get them answered. Questions like:

 If you hate corporations and find them to be the root of all evil, why are you in total, mindless support of the three biggest, monopolistic corporate entities on the planet…………namely Apple, Facebook, and the United States Bureaucratic Government? All three of these evil corporations are the epitome of control-without-competition and greed……..yet what is in your pocket, what is your homepage, and who is it you are wanting to control every aspect of your – and in turn everyone else’s – life?

If you are against racism, whether individual or systematic, how can you possibly embrace concepts like “affirmative-action”, “white privilege”, “black lives matter”, “diversity”, and “unconscious bias”? Have you heard of the concept of “two wrongs don’t make a right”?  Are you aware of the hypocrisy of lumping all white people into a group that all thinks the same, votes the same, wants the same, and all have been a wrongful beneficiary of an unconscious racism whether they know it or not? How do you justify attempting to enforce your racism and prejudice by claiming it is a response to existing racism and prejudice?

  If you are horrified and moved to action to remove the right to keep and bear arms because of horrible things like the Vegas Massacre……….where is your outrage at inner-city violence and murder committed by criminals with guns – illegal guns – on a daily/weekly/monthly basis in places like Chicago? Can you explain how removing the weapons from law-abiding citizens would stop these awful events? Can you see the danger in only allowing the Government to possess weapons? Are you aware that when you cite countries like Australia for gun control, they have a population of 22 million people – not almost 400 million like the United States? Do you know that giving me “gun violence statistics” from places like Australia without adjusting for population is ignorant? Do you know that out of the around 32,000 gun deaths in the U.S. every year, roughly 22,000 are suicides – about 1000 more are accidental – and the leftovers are the real number?

I honestly think the dissolution of our society is real, rapid, and perhaps not reversible. I know that it is if those that don’t agree with the Progressive Lunacy remain quiet and tolerant. Sane people are losing the cultural war, big time. The reason is simple……the left is united in its suicidal quest to tear down everything “America” because they hate it……and they hate it because they have been taught to by mindless morons in public education.  Instead of knowing that this country is the greatest experiment in human liberty and freedom, some are intent on an all-or-nothing focus on it’s imperfections…….when nothing and no one can survive that kind of viewpoint. I truly wish that more people would understand their own history, heritage, and culture instead of burning it down in the name of their perceived grievance. I also wish that the lefties I know, whom are either wealthy and connected  (though all the wealthy people I know like to delude themselves that they are “middle class”) or brainwashed and lower-income – would ask themselves whose pawns they are and why…….and just what it is they plan on replacing our society with after they have destroyed it. Enforced Government equality – at the point of a gun by the way, or did you not know that’s where Government power comes from? –  of thought, results, gender, sex, perception, ideas, possessions, wealth, and status………or else. A nightmare Land of The Lost.

The Circle and the Straight Line

As the Western World continues to lose its collective mind with Progressivism, a question keeps pinging around my brain: Why are so many people falling for things that are nuts? The reasons are many, but in my opinion, it all goes back to education. When I say “education”, I mean in the classical sense……not the “humanities”, or “gender/ethnic studies”, but a classical education that focuses on examining the past in a dry, objective manner. Why? Because people, especially the young, seem to be operating under a dangerous delusion: That technology, advancement, and human nature/behavior all follow the same pattern…….and they don’t.

Time and history…..including the advancement of human technological skill…..follow a linear, straight line. Events, time, and the people involved move forward on that line as history progresses. I’ll give you an example: since the IPhone was invented and introduced to the public, each year or so a newer, better, “smarter” device is designed and released. Same thing with other technologies…….advancement moves in a straight line, and an expectation of this linear progress becomes ingrained.  Still with me?

You could almost forgive someone who is the product of a postmodern education for applying this thought process onto human nature, and in turn behavior, if it wasn’t so wrong. See, human nature is a circle, not a line. While time, technology, and events move forward on that inevitable line, human nature revolves around like a wagon wheel. The wheel spins from barbarism to enlightenment, from enlightenment to apathy, from apathy to slavery, and then back to barbarism……then it spins again…..and again…..and on into perpetuity.  Only people who are completely unaware of this fact, and of history, insist on their philosophy of “social justice”. The human beings who inhabited ancient Greece, Rome, Minoa, Egypt, and even older places like Gobekli Tepe were just as, if not more, clever and thoughtful than modern people. Reading the philosophies of Socrates and Marcus Aurelius, or perusing the historical accounts of Josephus or Thucydides, would quickly dissolve the illusion that human beings and their “new ideas” are new at all.

So why do so many people think they hold a moral high ground by virtue signaling and proposing toxic ideas like the “patriarchy” and “privilege”? Why do Progressives not understand they are just spinning the wheel of human nature back to tribal barbarism?  Because ignorance is bliss. Its much easier and kinder on the ego to assume that you, as a modern Western human, are the apex of progress. You know what those that came before did not. You and your fellow Progressive travelers can ignore the wisdom of your ancestors because they didn’t have an IPhone and a Fakebook account. In fact, those that came before were Neanderthal morons who judged people by their skin color or ethnicity, and none of them tackled things like racism, inequality and global commerce. Because human thought and civilization is a straight line moving ever forward……just like my laptops processing power…….right?

This is why there are many people out there who want to erase and control the past……..because if you are ignorant of it, you can be shaped into whatever those people want. If you have no knowledge of your ancestral and philosophical inheritance, then you will never know anything, really. The only way to slow the spinning wheel of human nature is to be cognizant of its existence. Wallowing in the false security of the straight line of progress will rapidly lead to an escalation of our collective madness. It has happened before, and it will happen again………and knowing that is an absolute imperative.

The Neverending Eclipse

Each and every day I am struck by the absolute hypocrisy and ignorance of those on the Progressive Left. I watch and listen to people say things that are verifiably insane, yet they are met with serious looks and sympathetic reporting. We, as people of the United States – and by extension people of Western Civilization – are being told that what we see and hear and instinctively know….. is wrong…….and that reason and thought are poor substitutions for adolescent ignorance and childish emotionalism.  Moral authority has been either claimed by Progressives or had it assigned to them by their willing allies in Media, politics, and entertainment. Identity Politics, Class Victimhood, and the ideology of “Intersectionality” is just like the moon when it obscures the sun…….a cold, dark, thoughtless mass that blocks out the rays of enlightened reason.

My last column was a statement against defining people by their color and class, and also a warning about violence being committed in the name of advancing a political agenda.  The funny part, if there is one, is that some of the very folks I was speaking to did not understand the message………and they never will, because willful ignorance is a very strong narcotic, and those in its thrall are never told of its dangers, or of how difficult it is to kick the habit. Since the events that took place in Charlottesville I have discovered, in the course of doing my normal research, that those involved were pawns in a chess game they didn’t realize was being played. For example, I want to know why a man named Brennan Gilmore was the first on the scene – with a recording of the now infamous car-ramming and multiple media interviews afterwards – when he coincidently happens to be a CIA agent. Or how Jason Kessler, the organizer of the “Unite the Right” rally was also an organizer of “Occupy Wall Street” and was a community organizer for Obama – until last November, that is. Weird.  Don’t get me wrong, racists and fascists are still scumbags…..but it is important to note that everyone there – whether they were Black Lives Matter, White supremacists, or Antifa – were all advocating the exact same philosophy. If you are “triggered” by that, I don’t care……..I will “microaggress” all over your delicate sensibilities and love every minute of it.

I’ve written previously about the lack of historical perspective and it’s consequences – you know, that those who don’t know history are bound to repeat it – and yet our society is ramping up its stupidity. Like the warriors of ISIS, the Progressive Left is on an ideological rampage on behalf of it’s religion of Political Correctness……and statues and monuments, even the actual history of events, must be destroyed and wiped away in order to protect us from their “problematic” representations. Let me be as clear as I can possibly be…….. Progressivism is racist, sexist, anti-intellectual, and regressive. To believe in this toxic view of the world you must be everything you claim not to be. Need proof?

Diversity is a main tenet of being a Progressive, it is also touted by companies and government in statements like ” by ensuring a diverse workforce we benefit from everyone’s experiences and viewpoints, blah, blah, blah”. That offends me…..because it is bullshite.  Diversity is State-sanctioned, structural, and societal-approved racism. The idea of “privilege” is an ignorant, racist thought process. Intersectionality is also sexist and racist…….as it is the theory that every victim-group – LGBTQQ2+, “people of color”, women, etc……all “intersect” with one thing: namely that each tribe is the victim of a white man, or of “whiteness”.  Huh? Let me get this straight……..basing hiring, college admissions, and societal importance on skin color – regardless of performance – isn’t racist? Let me pose this question to you: If you found out you had cancer…..God forbid…..what qualifications would you look for in a Doctor? Skill? Accomplishments? Success stories? If you answered yes to any of those then you are, according to Progressive-Regressives,  a Nazi/Fascist. If you run a business, large or small, and you hire people based on how good they are at the job you are attempting to staff, without regard to gender and race, you are a Nazi/Fascist. In fact, if you advocate a merit-based philosophy when engaging a service or rating an individual’s performance……you are a Nazi/Fascist. If you want Government and the Private Sector to judge everyone equally under the law, regardless of color, belief, sex, religion, or material worth……….you guessed it…….you’re a Nazi/Fascist. Is it just me, or is a pattern forming?

The goal of all of this theatre and drama is to eliminate Free Speech. The United States is the only country that has ever existed on the face of the Earth that has recognized Free Speech as something granted by birth and not by Government. When Free Speech falls, everything else becomes irrelevant. Liberals used to be lauded for advocating the following ideal: ” I don’t agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” What happened to that? If you are an activist for anything other than color-blind, equal-under-the-law, meritocracy…….you are by default everything you claim to despise. I’ll say it again……if you believe in special treatment or special punishment based on appearance and genetics…..YOU are the bigot. If you think that violence is justified in response to someone’s words or philosophy, no matter how awful you think that philosophy is………you are the fascist. It remains to be seen if the eclipse of rationality occurring now is permanent or reversible…….but based on what I can gather, we may be forever immersed in darkness.

The Party of Illusion

Have you heard the news? Republicans in the House of Representatives and the Senate voted for, and passed, complete and total repeal of Obamacare. Awesome, right? Not really. I don’t mean passing measures to limit it, or defund it, or alter it, or call it dirty names, that stuff has happened over forty times………..no, I mean complete repeal. The only problem with this news is that this happened way back in December of 2015.

Cue the clowns:  Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the Grand Ole Puppet Show then waddled in front of the cameras to proudly announce that they had “kept their promise” and repealed O-care. Too bad that it would never survive Obama’s veto pen……….and too bad that the Republicans, all of them, knew that before they even voted. They also knew that most people are dumb and have the memory of goldfish, so for them, it was a big win……for the rest of us, not so much.

You may have heard that the Republicans just “weren’t prepared” for repealing Obamacare, or that the “White House is in disarray” and they can’t stop their overthrow of an elected president…..oops! I mean Russia investigations……long enough to do what they evidently had no problem doing, repeatedly, while Obama was in office. I’ll tell you what they weren’t prepared for: Trump winning, that’s what.  In the whirlwind of fake news and political assassination since last November, what has been buried and lost is that the entire world expected Hillary Clinton to be president…….I mean, she corrupted her way to the top, she paid her bribes…….oops again! I mean dues……hostile foreign entities had already bought her off through the Clinton Foundation, etc……so why would Congressional Republicans be any different?

The reason the Republicans can’t repeal Obamacare is simple……they don’t want to. Sure, all of the puppets in the show are playing their parts, the “conservatives” want this, the “moderates” want that, blah-blah-blah, but the truth is that they didn’t stop it when they could have, like the Progressives are stopping things now, because Obamacare is the greatest expansion of government power in United States history, and the people we have in Congress are the government, so why would you expect them to limit themselves?  It’s time for people to realize once and for all that the days of there being “conservatives” and “liberals” are over – if they ever even existed – and that now there is only the Progressive Establishment. There are different levels of that Establishment, yes…….but on a whole it is unified in its permanent bureaucratic control over us…….and it’s falling apart because of the election of Donald Trump. What you are seeing in the Media and reading in National Review and the New York Times is testament.

All of this leads me to make one point. If you consider yourself, conservative or Republican, you may be upset that your views aren’t being represented….and you’re right. I have good and bad news for you, bad news first: What you define as “conservative” is no longer applicable to the future of American politics. The numbers just aren’t there, especially when you realize that Millennials are now the largest single voting bloc. Now for the good news: there are millions out there like me, and we represent a revival and reinvigoration of the American Spirit and all that it represents – individual liberty, legal immigration, property rights, capitalism, personal responsibility, and a chauvinism about what is American Culture and Western Civilization…….and why it is better than anything else that has ever come before. We agree on more than we don’t, I’d wager.   People like John McCain, who has served himself in congress for 35 years (!!) and Lindsey Graham, who has done the same for 25 years, are not the future……they are the pitiable past. They are “The Swamp”, and they don’t understand that a train is coming, and the choice is between getting on board, getting out of the way……..or getting run down under its wheels.

American Insanity

What can one say? Spending the last week watching, reading, and enduring the Corporate Media’s collective cake-hole spewage of bullshite has taken it’s toll on me. I have discovered that there is indeed no logic or Socratic-method critical thinking involved in the world of propaganda media and entertainment. I keep having arguments with supposedly educated people whom are completely and utterly incapable of following their ideology and thought processes to their logical conclusion of destruction, madness, and a spiral into National Suicide.

Though I am frustrated with Trump on the lack of progress on many of the initiatives he espoused during the campaign, I can’t help but feel sorry for him. The Republican Party is a joke that ceased to be funny on January 21st………so busy chasing the stupid and preposterous Trump/Russia fantasy and war in the Middle East that it can’t be bothered to support the agenda it ran on for a decade. Their only defense is actually a good one, namely that standing up in the current climate of media mobsterdom brings an unwelcome barrage of Social Justice Lunacy. With that said though, man-up Repubs…….realize that people voted for Trumpism, not Republicanism………and any chance of your political survival hinges on you having that epiphany.

It’s a miracle that anything has happened since January, when you take in the panoramic view of things. If you do what most people do, which is consume content they agree with, it’s easy to get sidetracked and lost in the weeds of The Narrative. Eight years of The Sainted Emperor of Affirmative Action dividing us along racial lines was so successful that now The Left is inventing different genders and identities in order to continue to divide us. Who’d-a-thunk that the first bi-racial President would succeed in destroying the progress made since the equal rights gains of the nineteen-sixties? We have had the lie of multiculturalism rammed down our throats so vigorously and so often that many have started to weaken and fold………like being water-boarded by a Diversity Studies Professor every day for a decade.

The MTV Movie Awards was an excellent example of the fallacy of Leftist thinking about “gender identity”, “diversity”, and “multiculturalism”. The show was a perfect illustration of the stupidity of those that believe in this tripe, and was so vacuous in concept and logical conclusions that it was painful to see. An entire generation or two of idiots who are incapable of thought, praising themselves and their descent into insanity……without a thought to the conclusion of their thinking. If there are no differences in gender then why have Gynecologists or Urologists? Why have stores that sell female grooming and sanitary products? Perhaps it should be a crime to wallpaper a baby’s room in pink or blue? Maybe I should join the Women’s MMA organization………because I could, as a man identifying as a woman, beat the absolute crap out of Ronda Rousey and her peers, and I don’t know even know judo.

Every civilization that has died has degenerated into this kind of crap. Social decay borne from affluence and apathy, moral decay borne of an easy, bored life without struggle or purpose, glorification of false and decadent sexual practices as healthy and normal………..and finally dysfunction based on the lie that a society with no unifying culture can survive. Progressivism is the plague that rots the insides of the body politic……..and once weakened that body is destroyed by whatever outside force has resisted the pull of liberalism…….and in today’s world that outside force is Islam. Don’t believe me? Just watch as Europe and then America collapse willingly to the barbarians at the gates. Do we have the will to stop it? I really don’t know……..but we may indeed be facing our last chance to avert disaster………..so says history and human nature.

“From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.” – Abraham Lincoln

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Take heart. There is a massive effort under way to convince you that the election results, Britain’s exit from the E.U., Freedom of Speech, common sense immigration policy, prosperity, lower taxes, the concept of American Exceptionalism, and you……………are WRONG.  Yes, the same people who told you that Hillary’s crowds of 200 were the same as Trump’s crowds of 20,000, and that Trump had a 2% ( Huffington Post Nov. 7 2016 ) chance of winning the election, are now telling you how wrong and stupid you are. Is it working? Do you believe it? Well……..I’ll tell you some stuff you have to believe in order to be a Progressive in America:

Freedom of Speech only applies to those that you agree with. Anything else is blasphemy and “hatespeech”.

You think there is anything called “hatespeech”. FYI:  I can say what I want ( even if I’m not serious)  and I CAN, and will, OFFEND YOU. Grow up, idiot.

Importing the worst elements of a foreign, hostile nation are the key to the “melting pot” that is America.

Encouraging people to move to  America and become dependent on welfare instead of facing and overcoming the corruption in their own country is kind and generous.

There are so many people confused by their hoo-hoos and ding-a-lings that we must convert every public school’s bathrooms ( from 1st grade to college ) to some weird unisex standard.

Halting, for 90 freakin’ days, immigration from hotbeds of freedom and innovation like Somalia, Yemen, and Iran is an affront on the American Dream.

Unconstitutional executive orders are great if a member of the Progressive Elite signs them, yet constitutional orders signed by anyone else are the same as declaring yourself Hitler.

Being a disgusting racist is awesome if you are part of an identity group that is approved as “oppressed”.

Republicans “obstructed” Obama from implementing his agenda, even though in the past 8 years the left got everything they wanted, without legislative approval. ( I now sickeningly realize that the Republicans could have stopped Obama’s agenda, based on the actions of the democrats post-election )

Mexico and South/Central America’s illiterate, socialist, ignorant, and impoverished poor are a net gain for America’s economic growth and health.

All 7 billion people on the face of the Earth are entitled to the protections of the American Constitution, whether they are here or not, legally or not.

Beating, spitting on, screaming at, and attempting to destroy those that politically disagree with you is valiant and courageous.

Islam and Sharia law are compatible with Western Democracy and the Constitution…………and women wearing hijabs is empowering and the sign of a true feminist.

Black hooded and masked anarchists burning and rioting in the name of Global Socialism, and funded by real-life Nazi George Soros, are really Trump supporters.

I could go on and on, but you get the idea…………don’t you?

 

“Two things are infinite………the Universe and human stupidity………and I’m not sure about the Universe” – Albert Einstein

 

Nobody Cares

If you are defined by your identity, perceived grievance, and pre-packaged victimhood……….guess what? Nobody cares.

After the last decade of identity politics, blatant racist double-standards, and federally-sponsored fake news and outrage, the progressive left has finally “jumped the shark”. To be honest progressives, it’s not that people agree with you, or value your arguments……it’s that you have screwed things up in this country so badly, in such a short time, that the rest of us consider your “issues” to be petty and stupid compared to 20 trillion in debt, a porous border, crumbling infrastructure, failing schools, and invading hordes from the southern border and Syria.

Add to the equation that most American citizens bend over backwards to accommodate the ridiculous assertions of progressives, smiling and saying “excuse me”,and letting you act the fool on campus and in the workplace. Sitting quietly……… while those that they have paid to entertain them, and those that they work with, mock and insult them……all without fear of repercussion or consequence.

The problem is, leftist progressives live in a constant state of fake outrage. It’s never enough. You want abortions and gay marriage? No problem, you got ’em. Oh wait…..now you want abortions paid for with tax dollars up until the day of birth, and businesses that won’t cater your fabulous gay wedding must be destroyed. I see.

You want to pass unconstitutional, 3800 page, you-must-buy-this-or-else government healthcare that we have to “pass…before we can read”, without a single opposition party vote? High-five! You did it! Hold on buddy……………..it’s broken, like everything else you touch, and it has to be fixed.  “No!! You must make it right!”, you say…….”it’s your fault!”. I understand.

I will say this: I’m actually glad that the progressive left has so overplayed their hand in the last decade. Why? Because now, no one cares. We’ve seen riots, protests, fake news, Hillary’s hilarious emails, fake “hate-crimes”, unending lies, and alleged outrage over the “ethical lapses” of others from the very inventors of the concept. We’ve seen the “leaders” in the House and Senate, and all of government, exposed as incompetents and selfish freaks………..like vampires in a horror movie, feeding off of the rest of us for decades, drunk on the blood of the innocent. We’ve seen college students yelling through megaphones about the cost of their Ethnic Studies degrees, and the injustice of anyone who disagrees with them……..with the result being nap times, baby-play, and “safe spaces”.

So……..don’t go to the inauguration, go on CNN, march in a circle…scream at the top of your lungs about “impeachment” and “illegitimacy”…………..because guess what?

Nobody cares.
