Over at the Conservative Hideout, Matt Ross is keeping track of Racial Violence in America.
We are engaged in a war to the death with the Left In America and we must always be on guard…
The great advice comes from Father Jonathan Morris:
Churches in USA should re-consider practice of registering as civil officiants of marriage. Otherwise, we may be forced to do gay marriages.
— Fr. Jonathan Morris (@fatherjonathan) February 27, 2014
While we plan our next offensives against the Left, it is important that we have a solid defense.
It’s sad that taking this action means that Christians and Jews will be forced to go through two ceremonies, but we are in the midst of a mighty war and sacrifices have to be made. Besides, I believe it is our duty to protect the Sacred from the filthy and dessicated hands of the Profane Nihilists who want to destroy our Faith in God.
We can all use a break now and again from the dreadful situation we are in…and we can learn a little about our Western Heritage at the same time….
I’m re-reading Jacques Barzun’s magisterial work From Dawn To Decadence: 500 Years of Western Cultural Life, 1500 to the Present — to which I give my highest recommendation — and I came across these two interesting tidbits:
Again, aware of the increased number and mobility of the population, he decreed that every person take or be given a surname. About the same time Henry VIII did likewise for his English subjects. This expansion of the self by a double name has interesting social implications. It raises the common man nearer the noble lord, fully tagged and distinguished by a coat of arms. Today the tendency is to revert to the tribal simplicity of Ben, son of Thomas; strangers now call each other Susan and John ten seconds after meeting, and public figures are ashamed of their full double names. To be popular, heads of state and other politicians must be Jimmy and Betsy and Bill.
In the 16C the surname was a consequence of cutting loose from one’s native soil. Many late medieval and Renaissance poets and artists were and are still known by their first names: Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo; Dante is even a nickname, the short form of Durante. When confusion with another had to be avoided, the place name supplied it: Raphael da Urbina, Leonardo da Vinci. The peasant or artisan, the monk or midwife were content with a baptismal name as long as they kept to their usual narrow orbit. But with travel (and exile) more frequent, with the needs of stricter tax collecting and religious conformity, rulers at every level wanted to register their subjects unmistakably. In Spain no edict was needed. The long conflict (and intermarriage) with the Moors and Jews had made descent a matter of uncommon pride and at times a claim to privilege. From this came the practice of double and sometimes multiple surnames, showing father, mother, title, and place of origin-Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra-and the longer the better: Maria Teresa Velez del Hoyo y Sotomayor.
In other countries, after the call for verbal ID, the question was, where to look for a good tag. Four main kinds were hit upon: the nickname given by the neighbors-Bright, Stout; the dwelling place: Hill, Woods; the trade or office: Smith, Marshall; and paternity: John(son) or MacShane, which also means John’s son. That this last leads to the contradiction of Mary Johnson only shows how words can defy their derivation….
It is not stretching things too far to see in this demand or clear naming an early instance of a trend in western culture that has itself no name: it might be called “the sharpening of identification.” The feudal lord, probably illiterate, used visual symbols, his heraldic shield, to make himself known. The modern commoner, who can spell, has been using two names and a middle initial; exact designation goes with heightened INDIVIDUALISM. But with vast populations and multiplied roles and wants, names are proving insufficient, especially with literacy in decline. To remain distinct within the mass we must be branded with a series of numbers and must recite them to be known and served and allowed to pursue one’s life.
…For strange as it may seem, humanism, for all its love of the natural, did nothing to keep the human face from being heavily painted. Some men and all self-respecting women other than the lowly or rural applied thick coats of color and varnish to their features. Elizabeth of England and her ladies in waiting (we are told) put on a mixture of mashed apples (whence the word pomade), rose water, and hog’s fat. But as the queen wanted her face to be perfectly white, it would seem that chalk was used as the overriding ingredient of the compost. She could test its effect with the aid of a new device, the mirror as we know it, made of clear glass with a backing. She completed her improvement on nature by dying her hair red (later wearing a wig to the same effect), and plucking her eyebrows out of existence: nobody could catch her looking surprised—it was her permanent expression, and no doubt an asset to any ruler and especially to one trying to be absolute.
Are you listening Hillary Rodham?
We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him.
We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.
And like that great Marine, Jeff Goldstein is not taking any prisoners [and rightfully so — this war with the Left is a war to the death] in a post that is dead solid perfect on several matters:
We understand who the left is. In fact, we have reached that refreshing stage in the political and culture wars where “progressives” openly admit to and support an imperial executive, a fluid rule of law, and outright, unabashed cronyism that, in addition to providing perks and special dispensation for its political allies, is actively and rather openly trying to use law to squelch political dissent.
Feeling their oats, the Left In America is now reluctant to practice their deceptions, to hide behind their Big Lies, except when they spew their tired bromides for the cameras — but you can tell their black hearts aren’t in it any longer. But, when it comes to their actions, they no longer feel the need to cloak their intentions any longer.
The Left believes that this is their moment in History.
While conservatives stand athwart History yelling ‘Stop!’, the Left shouts: ‘Stop The World, I Want To Get Off!’…
Just once in a lifetime
There’s one special moment
One wonderful moment
When fate takes your hand
And this is the moment
My once in a lifetime
When I can explore
A new and exciting land
For once in my lifetime
I feel like a giant
I soar like an eagle
As tho’ I had wings
For this is my moment
My destiny calls me
And tho’ it may be just once in my lifetime
I’m gonna do great things
Just once in my lifetime
I feel like a giant
I soar like an eagle
As though I had wings
For this is my moment
My destiny calls me
And tho’ it may be just once in my lifetime
I’m gonna do great things
The Left has launched their final offensive against The American Republic.
We must not let them be victorious, otherwise, we shall condemn future generations to enslavement and misery unbounded and death.
O U T L A W S !
No, I’m not talking about the fact that to embrace Leftism one must deny Reality, refuse to accept Life as it is. I prefer to think of this kind of Denial as The Root Denial — the self-deception that is absolutely necessary to engage in if a person is going to be able to be a Leftist.
The biggest Denial the Modern Left has imposed on itself is that it is in no way connected at all with Fascism, generally, and Nazism, specifically.
In his latest column, Daniel Hannan reveals Truths that the Left refuses to hear and reacts violently to when confronted with them.
On 16 June 1941, as Hitler readied his forces for Operation Barbarossa, Josef Goebbels looked forward to the new order that the Nazis would impose on a conquered Russia. There would be no come-back, he wrote, for capitalists nor priests nor Tsars. Rather, in the place of debased, Jewish Bolshevism, the Wehrmacht would deliver “der echte Sozialismus”: real socialism.
Goebbels never doubted that he was a socialist. He understood Nazism to be a better and more plausible form of socialism than that propagated by Lenin. Instead of spreading itself across different nations, it would operate within the unit of the Volk.
So total is the cultural victory of the modern Left that the merely to recount this fact is jarring. But few at the time would have found it especially contentious. As George Watson put it in The Lost Literature of Socialism:
It is now clear beyond all reasonable doubt that Hitler and his associates believed they were socialists, and that others, including democratic socialists, thought so too.
The clue is in the name. Subsequent generations of Leftists have tried to explain away the awkward nomenclature of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party as either a cynical PR stunt or an embarrassing coincidence. In fact, the name meant what it said.
Hitler told Hermann Rauschning, a Prussian who briefly worked for the Nazis before rejecting them and fleeing the country, that he had admired much of the thinking of the revolutionaries he had known as a young man; but he felt that they had been talkers, not doers. “I have put into practice what these peddlers and pen pushers have timidly begun,” he boasted, adding that “the whole of National Socialism” was “based on Marx”.
While Nazism was based on Marxism and, to a smaller degree, Leninism, Hitler [taking a cue from Mussolini] devised a, shall we say, less disruptive version:
Marx’s error, Hitler believed, had been to foster class war instead of national unity – to set workers against industrialists instead of conscripting both groups into a corporatist order. His aim, he told his economic adviser, Otto Wagener, was to “convert the German Volk to socialism without simply killing off the old individualists” – by which he meant the bankers and factory owners who could, he thought, serve socialism better by generating revenue for the state. “What Marxism, Leninism and Stalinism failed to accomplish,” he told Wagener, “we shall be in a position to achieve.”
Hitler saw his way [aka: Fascism] as more practical and easier to achieve because it involved compromising the ‘old indvidualists’. Using a mixture of threats and incentives that appealed to the base desires of the big businessmen, Hitler got them to join him in the Corporatist Order he was fashioning. He made them feel better about what they and the workers and Intelligentsia were doing by giving them cover for their actions in a cloak made of German Pride.
What Hitler was successful in doing, the Left In America is seeking to do here now. ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ and his minions have forged successful alliances with Unions, the Unproductive Class, and Big Business, so that the four are now joined in an offensive, the goal of which is to fundamentally transform The United States into a Fascist Regime. [Notice, by the way, that in both the Hitler and 'Obama' schemes, the Middle Class – what I like to call the Productive Class – are not invited, but are subject to unrelenting harassments and malevolent intimidations.]
As you can well imagine, the Left is not very happy when they are shown to be the heirs of the Facistas in Italy and the National Socialists in Germany. This wounds them even more deeply because they have been told their whole lives that Fascism is a Far-Right Ideology.
As Mr. Hannan points out:
The idea that Nazism is a more extreme form of conservatism has insinuated its way into popular culture. You hear it, not only when spotty students yell “fascist” at Tories, but when pundits talk of revolutionary anti-capitalist parties, such as the BNP and Golden Dawn, as “far Right”.
What is it based on, this connection? Little beyond a jejune sense that Left-wing means compassionate and Right-wing means nasty and fascists are nasty. When written down like that, the notion sounds idiotic, but think of the groups around the world that the BBC, for example, calls “Right-wing”: the Taliban, who want communal ownership of goods; the Iranian revolutionaries, who abolished the monarchy, seized industries and destroyed the middle class; Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who pined for Stalinism. The “Nazis-were-far-Right” shtick is a symptom of the wider notion that “Right-wing” is a synonym for “baddie”.
Mr. Hannan gets it partially right, but he forgets the bigger motivation for the spreading of this Big Lie: that the Left wants to cleanse from our knowledge of History that they enthusiastically supported the Fascists up until Hitler invaded The Soviet Union. They want us to forget their gushing, at times like giddy schoolgirls, over Hitler and Mussolini. Most especially they want us to forget their support for Eugenics, the purifying of race pool, and other perverse ideas.
It was and has always been Leftists who have supported such Evil ideas and the hideous schemes that have arisen out of them.
For much too long, we have allowed the Left to perpetuate the Big Fascist Lie in service of their Big Denial.
They have controlled the Narrative and this must end if we are to have any hope of defeating them.
Leftism is the Ideology of Evil and it must be destroyed utterly.
Well…it’s actually not such a rare occurrence: Mohammedins often tell the truth when they’re speaking to their own kind in their native tongues, as MEMRI has documented time and time again.
However, when Muslims know their audience has non-Muslims in it, they lie, knowing that their ‘religion’ allows them to do so [the word to look-up is 'Taqiyya'].
In Great Britain today, the two Jihadists being sentenced for the vicious murder of soldier Lee Rigby felt compelled to tell the Truth and give a fine glimpse into Islamic Thinking.
consider the scenes at the Old Bailey, England’s central criminal court, at the sentencing of the two Sarf London jihadists who hacked to death a British soldier, Drummer Lee Rigby, on the streets of Woolwich in broad daylight:
Violence broke out in the Old Bailey dock today after Lee Rigby’s murderers began hurling abuse at the judge and fighting with prison guards during their sentencing.
Michael Adebolajo, 29, was given a whole-life term, while Michael Adebowale, 22, was jailed for life with a minimum of 45 years – meaning he could be back on the streets by the age of 67.
In extraordinary scenes, the two Muslim extremists yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ and ‘You (Britain) and America will never be safe’ during their sentencing at the court in Central London…
The killers had to be pinned to the ground by nine security guards and Rigby’s family began sobbing as they watched the incident in horror, being handed tissues by court staff.
The relatives were forced to get up from their seats, cowering away from the violence which was happening just feet away, according to reporters in court.
As Laura Rosen Cohen comments:
No remorse from the murders, no respect for the court or for the law, and yet the possibility for the jihadist murders of a free life, once again, as “extremist” senior citizens in jolly old London town.
What’s interesting is the point at which Messrs Adebolajo and Adebowale decided they’d had enough:
The struggle in the dock was triggered when the killers, both wearing Islamic robes, reacted angrily to comments that Mr Justice Sweeney made about their extremist beliefs.
He told them: ‘You each converted to Islam some years ago. Thereafter you were radicalised and each became an extremist, espousing views which, as has been said elsewhere, are a betrayal of Islam.’
At which point the two murderers yelled, “That’s a lie!” and “It’s not a betrayal of Islam!”
I wouldn’t wish to extend my differences with the US judiciary to the judges of the Old Bailey, but I’m inclined to think Messrs Adebolajo and Adebowale have the better of Mr Justice Sweeney on this specific point. Is he really such an expert in Islam that he can expound with confidence on theological betrayal? And, whatever the broader picture, isn’t it the case in this particular instance that, rather than converting to Islam and becoming “radicalized” and “extremist”, the pair converted to Islam precisely in order to become “radicalized” and “extremist”?
Why does m’lud feel the need to dissemble from the bench? You can smell, as these two blood-soaked goons did, fear and cowardice in these evasions.
What’s wrong with this Hobbitian Visigoth Steyn, huh?
Doesn’t he know that Islam is a Religion Of Peace®?!?!? Where has he been since 09/11? These past thirteen years have shown us that the vast, vast, vast, vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace! Invoking the late St. Rodney King, they just want us all to get along!
People like this raging, rabid
zion, er, lion Mark Steyn are troublemakers and hatey hate haters who, in their fanatical, extremist conservative minds, want to have us all fighting and hatey-hating on each other, so that we’ll never build the world a home and furnish it with love…grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves.
It’s not fair!…it’s not fair….
It’s time we silenced these H8ers — The Silence Is Settled!
We need SPEECH JUSTICE!…and to be nice to our Muslim brothers and our Muslim sisters and our Muslim Queers and our Muslim Transgenders and our….wait!….what??? [collapses on the floor and chokes on his own stupidity]
One principle that today’s intellectuals most passionately disseminate is vulgar relativism, “nihilism with a happy face.” For them, it is certain that there is no truth, only opinion: my opinion, your opinion. They abandon the defense of intellect. There being no purchase of intellect upon reality, nothing else is left but preference, and will is everything. They retreat to the romance of will.
In discussing the case of Harriet Harman, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, who has been found to have been a vehement supporter of ‘pedophile rights’ back some three decades ago, Stacy McCain remarks:
The Creepy Perverts Rights Movement was a logical extension of the same arguments made for other “liberation” movements. The 1970s were a time when praising Ho Chi Minh and quoting Chairman Mao were commonplace among leftists. Are we supposed to be surprised that common sense and basic moral decency did not restrain young radical Harriet Harman?…
Of course, the Left has always been advocating for some kind of ‘liberation’. To be a Leftist requires that you (1) reject all Morality and (2) work to destroy all of the institutions that are based on Morality.
Morality is a belief that there is Good and and there is Evil. No Society can long exist without it’s members agreeing on what is right and what is wrong and, further, that God and/or Human Experience dictate what is right and wrong.
When a group of people start to believe that Good and Evil are relative, that everyone can define it for himself, according to his fancies and whims, then lawlessness, disorder, and Chaos ensue. Where there are no standards of restraint of behavior, then their can be no security. Life becomes a constant struggle just to survive.
This is what happened during the whole of Soviet Rule and what is still happening in Red China [despite what many want to believe about the latter].
‘Liberation’ from Morality is nothing more than a false front, a grand irony that means souls in chains to misery and death.
You can never be free and liberated from Reality for very long because she is the most determined force in the Life. She is an especially cruel teacher to those who blithely deny her [aided ably in her efforts by her sister, Nemesis].
In seeking to ‘liberate’ us all from Truth, the Left is attempting to drag us all down into their putrefying pit of Nihilism.
For that is what people like Harriet Harman are: assassins of Life; they are Anti-Life.
They are perverted creatures who wallow and writhe in the filth of their hatred of their own lives, and their hatred is so intense that they want to embroil everyone in their Culture Of Death.
Any toleration of them, as History has shown again and again, will bring us nothing but brutal and agonizing harm — of the physical kind and of our Souls.
The Left must be crushed.
Speaking to another set of weaklings [the Tories were Quislings before being a Quisling was cool] back in October of 1938, Winston Churchill said:
…Can peace, goodwill, and confidence be built upon submission to wrong-doing backed by force?
One may put this question in the largest form. Has any benefit or progress ever been achieved by the human race by submission to organised and calculated violence? As we look back over the long story of the nations we must see that, on the contrary, their glory has been founded upon the spirit of resistance to tyranny and injustice, especially when these evils seemed to be backed by heavier force. Since the dawn of the Christian era a certain way of life has slowly been shaping itself among the Western peoples, and certain standards of conduct and government have come to be esteemed. After many miseries and prolonged confusion, there arose into the broad light of day the conception of the right of the individual; his right to be consulted in the government of his country; his right to invoke the law even against the State itself. Independent Courts of Justice were created to affirm and inforce this hard-won custom. Thus was assured throughout the English-speaking world, and in France by the stern lessons of the Revolution, what Kipling called, "Leave to live by no man’s leave underneath the law." Now in this resides all that makes existence precious to man, and all that confers honour and health upon the State.
Dictatorship – the fetish worship of one man – is a passing phase. A state of society where men may not speak their minds, where children denounce their parents to the police, where a business man or small shopkeeper ruins his competitor by telling tales about his private opinions; such a state of society cannot long endure if brought into contact with the healthy outside world. The light of civilised progress with its tolerances and co-operation, with its dignities and joys, has often in the past been blotted out. But I hold the belief that we have now at last got far enough ahead of barbarism to control it, and to avert it, if only we realise what is afoot and make up our minds in time. We shall do it in the end. But how much harder our toil for every day’s delay!
Is this a call to war? Does anyone pretend that preparation for resistance to aggression is unleashing war? I declare it to be the sole guarantee of peace. We need the swift gathering of forces to confront not only military but moral aggression; the resolute and sober acceptance of their duty by the English-speaking peoples and by all the nations, great and small, who wish to walk with them. Their faithful and zealous comradeship would almost between night and morning clear the path of progress and banish from all our lives the fear which already darkens the sunlight to hundreds of millions of men.
Are you listening, GOP?
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel plans to shrink the United States Army to its smallest force since before the World War II buildup and eliminate an entire class of Air Force attack jets in a new spending proposal that officials describe as the first Pentagon budget to aggressively push the military off the war footing adopted after the terror attacks of 2001.
Well, this is rather fitting considering that we seem to be living in a 21st Century version of the 1930′s.
There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the Sibylline Books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong —these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.

Dump that noise. It’s high time for reform.
All of the members of the GOP Leadership are nothing but modern Vichy French, new models of Norwegian Quislings, willing to collaborate with the Enemies of The United States, or, as they are usually known as: the Left In America*.
As we are edging towards the one-hundredth anniversary of World War I, it might be worthwhile to remember the futility of Trench Warfare, which, it seems, we are engaged-in with the GOP leadership [they, of course, are the Kaiser's Armies in this scenario].

*I use the term ‘Left In America’ when referring to the
Leftists who live in The United States because their beliefs
are completely foreign to everything America stands for.
They are alien invaders, talking in a language that many
of us have trouble truly comprehending because it cloaks
itself in normal dress, manipulating the definitions of our
words in subtle ways, to the point where understanding
what’s afoot is very difficult.
I’ve been very busy these past two days and, for some reason, I find myself in a light mood.
So, enjoy these songs I’ve been listening to this Afternoon.
-Sooner or later love is gonna win…
Damn, Mary Arnold was hot.
-I’m a lucky fella…
I didn’t know until today that this song was originally written for The Grass Roots.

A great pop song.

In the Comments section of a post by Smitty, over at The Other McCain, on the wreckage that is already piling-up as a result of the government takeover of control of our Health Care System, commentator Cube remarks:
As long as it’s only the little people who suffer, what’s the problem? The important, politically connected people made lots of money off Obamacare and the foolish supporters got to feel good about themselves without having to actually do anything useful. Let this disaster start hurting the connected crowd and their enablers, then watch how fast they change their tune.
But that won’t happen.
One of the things very few people have mentioned is how government-controlled access to health care will play out.
It will play out just like everything else in the corrupt world of politics plays out: with the politically connected getting the best care and the rest of us suffering.
Connections will be like insurance used to be: the gateway to receiving quality health care.
While the number of high-quality medical facilities will decrease, a few will still survive and continue to provide excellent care and breakthrough research. These blessed institutions will be taken care of by the politicians and their bureaucratic minions and by the wealthy Elites. But don’t plan on ever seeing the inside of one if you aren’t part of the Mastermind Class.
Back in the days of Imperial Rome, Emperors would often demand that their subjects proclaim, ‘We exist only to serve Caesar’. That is what will be demanded of those of us who are not part of the Mastermind Class. The Unproductive Class will, of course, be more than glad to thus declare, but what about those of us in the Productive Class?

The leader of a super PAC that is using donations from labor unions to wage war on the Tea Party went on MSNBC to say that Sen. Ted Cruz should leave the Republican party.
Former Rep. Steven LaTourette is a member in the establishment’s war on the Tea Party. His deceptively named “Defending Main Street” PAC is being financed primarily by Wall Street and labor unions, which have contributed at least 20% to the group’s fundraising haul.
In an appearance on MSNBC’s The Last Word on Tuesday, LaTourette said that Cruz was “reprehensible” for forcing Republicans to go on the record to advance a bill to raise the debt ceiling without reducing spending. Cruz forced those like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) [Bob: Poor babies] to vote to move the bill to the floor. McConnell said he had to act to “protect the country” before then voting against final passage of the bill, which passed with no Republican support.
“I don’t think he is a Republican, to tell you the truth,” LaTourette said on MSNBC…”I wish he would stop being a Republican and leave the party. That would be a nice thing.”
Well…Ted Cruz is, from all reports, a very nice guy, so maybe he should take the advice given by LaTourette in his latest anti-conservative Coprolalia and leave the Quisling GOP.
I know many of us would gladly follow the Senator from Texas.
SIDENOTE: On the other hand, this Tic may have a point when he says: ‘I don’t think he is a Republican, to tell you the truth’.
Why would anyone who is honorable and decent and dedicated to fighting, not submitting to, Tyranny, like Senator Cruz, want to be associated with a group that appeases and collaborates with the Alien Enemy [aka, of course: Leftists]?
Jeff Goldstein, coiner of the term ‘Outlaws’ :
More and more, we create disincentives to work; and the end game is to create a voting populace in which those dependent on the government vote for those in government who keep promising to steal from the productive class and distribute the fruits of their labor — which is in essence their liberty — to those who learn to feel entitled to it.
Sooner or later, of course, you run out of other people’s money, as everyone knows. It’s just that this latest crop of leftist shitbags don’t much care. Because right now, they’re divvying up the spoils and taking care of themselves and their clients. What comes next?
I’m not sure, but my gut tells me it won’t be anything good.
Perhaps the Left In America desires to transfer so many Americans into the Unproductive-Leeching Class that those left [no pun intended] in the Productive Class will not be able to mount an effective opposition / rebellion.
The trouble with this thinking is that it does not take into consideration that most of the Productive Class is armed.
But, perhaps the Left does…maybe they think that they’ll have a strong enough and well-armed Civilian Army [aka: non-military government workers] that can crush any opposition — the Leftist-controlled government is certainly, it seems from all evidence, preparing such a force.
The only Hope I can offer those who wish to see The American Republic restored is this historical fact: the British thought their armed forces [the best in the World, at the time] could crush the rebel Colonists for the same reasons, and we know what happened there.
Now, I concede that, unlike the Colonists, we will not likely find an ally like the Imperial French to support us and fight with us, but I maintain that, though it would have taken longer, the Colonists would have still ultimately triumphed against the British because the Rebels possessed the Will to win.
But, let us say that this belief of mine is wrongly derived, as it may well be. We still have cause for not despairing of our efforts to restore our freedom and liberties because we, The Remnant, have Determination, we know that Right is on our side, that we are soldiers for what is Good. And we know, deep down, that the Left fears the Good.
The Productive Class has been declared the enemy by the Left. As far as they are concerned, we are beyond the pale. They believe we are not legitimate, not worthy of any respect or tolerance.
The Left In America have proclaimed us to be Outlaws, who must be hunted down — for now, through legislation and regulation, but later, through physical suppression — and neutralized in whatever way possible, by any means necessary.
Well then…we should act accordingly.
We should resist them in every way possible.
After all, we’re nothing but Outlaws.
Have you noticed that most of the Left In America is no longer even taking the time to be subtle in their Big Lies?
And have you also noticed that, in defiance of all Common Sense, the Left’s success-rate in getting their Big Lies believed is just as good, if not better?
Jeff Goldstein remarked earlier today:
So long as we allow the left to write our history — and by “write” I mean “create, shape, contextualize, and, in many cases, fictionalize” — our history will be an amalgamation of leftist lies meant to propagandize. The long march through the institutions is not some abstract theoretical plan by hard leftists to shape in our citizens from an early age onward a particular cognitive frame and in so doing, secure the idolatry and subservience of a misinformed and maladjusted army of useful idiots who are long on esteem and entitlement and short on critical thinking skills and the ability to tease the truth from competing or often altogether incoherent narratives; instead, it is a reality: it is happening, and though it is often hamfisted and obvious, too much of it sticks.
That such obvious lies are being believed by so many is a sign to me that we probably shouldn’t waste our time trying to convert those not on our side, but not working actively for
Evil, er, the Left. They are so encompassed by Depravity that they are beyond hope. Pray for them, sure, but leave them to God and move on.
We’re on our own, methinks, and we should, therefore, act accordingly.
We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.

‘Barack Hussein Obama’* is whining like the little spoiled-brat Nancy Boy he is again.
[Charles] Barkley asked, “What do you think of the term Obamacare?”
“I like it. I don’t mind. And I tell you, five years from now, when everybody’s saying, ‘Man, I’m sure glad we got healthcare,’ there are going to be a whole bunch of people who don’t call it Obamacare anymore because they don’t want me to get the credit. But you don’t know what life will throw at you. [Bob: I know what I'd like to throw at him] And sometimes people don’t recognize, particularly young people, how important it is to have coverage until you get sick and you realize you may lose everything you have, or your parents may lose everything they have, trying to make you well. So we’re encouraging people to sign up. They’ve got until March 31 to sign up for this year.”
Methinks Dan Collins has the right idea:
