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.

A Change Is Gonna Come

Tyrants, cult leaders, sadistic dictators, and megalomaniacs have all had at least one thing in common…………they rewrite or erase history. A big part of Chairman Mao’s communist “revolution” was the attempted removal of anything indicative of China’s long and rich history. Art, books, ancient texts and artifacts, even the teachers who possessed knowledge of China’s past were purged.  For years this has also been the mission of ISIS and other Islamic groups across what was once referred to as “the cradle of civilization”. They are systematically razing….I mean destroying all trace of…..any and all ancient ruins and artifacts that they come across, forever removing known, and unknown, pieces of humanity’s hidden past. These are the actions of tyrannical ideologies, and their adherents, all in service to their crazed desire to limit knowledge and control the past, present, and future of those they hold power over. Sadly, the Cult of Social Justice – America’s new religion – has begun it’s purge.

Starting today, New Orleans has begun its newest project in service to the god of Identity Politics…….they’re removing the Civil War statues of historical figures like Robert E. Lee and others. You can even see pictures of the typical white beta-male SJW standing in front of one of these monuments holding the unintentionally-ironically-racist  “black lives matter” sign in support. This kind of thinking should have no place in America, a country founded by followers of The Enlightenment, where knowledge of history and human behavior is supposed to inform and educate the public. Instead, the same morons who think there is such a thing as “intersectional gender identity” now think that remembrance of actual history is too offensive and “problematic” to remain in our midst.

Like the muslims who dream of toppling the great cathedrals of Europe, the American Left dreams of redacting any trace of people and events that they deem offensive. Let me be clear, the Confederacy was representative of the awful realities of the South’s slave economy, and that includes all the bad stuff you’re thinking……..but that does not change the fact that this nation went to war with itself, almost destroyed itself, and then put itself back together – with over a million people dead or maimed as a result. It happened. There were famous, notable figures on both sides. Statues and monuments were raised all over the country because of the scale and scope of the war – and most importantly, because a history forgotten is a history repeated.

Like the three famous monkeys that are used to portray the age-old “hear no, speak no, see no evil”, the Progressive Left wishes to remove unpleasant references to our unpleasant past.  But just like gender, the true effect of multiculturalism, immigration, and entitlement spending…….simply lying, imposing twisted logic, and covering up the truth doesn’t make something real and actual disappear. Logic and reason do not cease to exist just because you replace it with childish emotion…….and the facts of history do not cease to exist just because you tear them down. Things like racism and tyranny are born from ignorance, and blotting out history breeds it.

Several months ago, while doing research for another column, I joked that a visit to Stone Mountain, Georgia would be a good idea……..because it wouldn’t be long before a giant black curtain is installed over the famed carved monument located there. Now that joke has become a prophecy. What part of our history is next to be removed and demolished in the name of childish sensitivity? Who decides what will be redacted, and for whose benefit? The supposed evolved-among-us can once again celebrate their success……….less knowledge, less freedom, less Socratic critical thinking, less free speech, less reminders of the unfortunate facts of human existence, less tolerance, and lesser intelligence…………all in accordance and unity with the greatest monsters that ever existed. Bravo, SJW morons………sharing the same philosophies as all of your favorite boogeymen. Will there be someone as dumb as you are in a hundred years to erase your stupidity from history? Let’s hope not……..because your ignorance is truly………..historic.

Land of Confusion

What is the Establishment’s, Democrat and Republican both, obsession with Russia? I really don’t understand the dangerous game of interventionism and proxy war that our Uniparty has been playing. Since Reagan outspent the Soviets into extinction at the end of the eighties, what reason do we have for continuing to poke The Russian Bear? Most people probably don’t realize that the war Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama started in Syria is yet another surrogate confrontation with Putin’s Russia.

I can’t fathom why the United States has any business attempting to topple Bashir Assad in Syria. Most liberals support Obama and Hillary…. yet don’t even make a connection between what is happening in Syria and the administration’s failed “red line” policies and actions.  Do they know we armed the “rebels” fighting in Syria, only to have them become ISIS fighters armed with U.S. weapons and training? I thought libs hated war and foreign intervention, yet when their guys do it they seem to have no problem with it. Obama took Dubya’s disaster in the middle east and turned it into an even bigger nightmare, all while Hillary Clinton was his Secretary of State.  Where are the charges of “warmonger”?  Where are the cries of “no blood for oil”?

In fact, Social Justice and Climate Change Warriors, where are your immature and University nurtured rants? My guess is that they are so ignorant they don’t realize that every cry for an end to domestic oil and gas production is a cry for more foreign intervention, more environmental destruction ( Saudi Arabia doesn’t give a damn about the environment or “climate change” ), and more war. Oil is the lifeblood of modern living and society, and as long as we insist on foreign transfusions of this vital fluid in the name of “clean energy”, we will be involved with, and dependent on, some of the biggest scumbags on the planet.

Do Hillary and her supporters think we can win a conflict with Russia? I don’t. We have turned our military into an unserious social experiment, replete with transgendered soldiers, taxpayer funded sex changes, female combatants, and ridiculous people like the current Secretary of the Navy…..who just named some of our new warships after Harvey Milk, Gabby Giffords, and Caesar Chavez.

Our corrupt leaders want to demonize Putin, right or wrong, yet we owe Xi Jinping’s China trillions and say nothing about the many abuses they foist upon their people. No one in our government seems to care about China’s expansion of it’s military footprint by building islands out of nothing in the South China Sea, around which it now claims ownership of previously free-trade international waters. How do you think South Korea and a defenseless Japan feel about that? Does anyone think that we would actually honor our commitment to defend Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea? We still stomp around the world stage like the big kid on the playground…..but we’ve already blinked when facing the bullies and willingly given them our lunch money.

Hillary Clinton says Putin is “like Hitler” and “doesn’t have a soul”, while John McCain says Putin is “a thug and butcher” and his secret lover Lindsey Graham echoes him with, “He’s a thug and a dictator”. Doesn’t seem to be much disagreement among the Uniparty in ratcheting up tension between us and Russia, does there?

Let’s hope that if Bobblehead Hillary gets the White House that she doesn’t stroke out and get us into a war that no one will be the winner of…….because frankly I’m tired of sacrificing the youth of America into the gristmill of neverending war. It’s time to get our own house in order, and stop creating boogeymen as an excuse for the enrichment and entertainment of our Political Class……the stakes are too high and the cost too much.
