Faith, family, culture

President Trump’s speech in Warsaw was, beyond a shadow of a doubt, tremendous.  What is at stake in our times is much more than a budget, a policy or an election.  What is at stake is civilization itself.

[Speaking to the Polish people] Your oppressors tried to break you, but Poland could not be broken. And when the day came on June 2nd, 1979, and one million Poles gathered around Victory Square for their very first Mass with their Polish pope, that day every communist in Warsaw must have known that their oppressive system would soon come crashing down. They must have known it at the exact moment during Pope John Paul II’s sermon when a million Polish men, women, and children suddenly raised their voices in a single prayer. A million Polish people did not ask for wealth. They did not ask for privilege. Instead, one million Poles saying three simple words: “We want God.”

The prerequisite for the success of Western civilization is not material riches. Economic prosperity and military might on their own are not sufficient. The critical leaven is the confidence in core Western values, such things as free speech, the equality of women, respect for individual rights, the rule of law, the affirmation of faith and family. Hence, the fundamental question facing Western nations today is whether the people continue to nurture the cultural self-confidence in those fundamental values. If they do, the West is unbeatable. If those values dissipate, the West is lost. As long as we know our history, we will know how to build our future.

Faith, family, culture, to summarize, these are the keys of who we are.  It is no wonder that when Communists move to take over a nation the first thing they do is attack the Church, particularly the Christian Church, next the family and then the culture.  With these reduced to silent, impotent rubble the mass of the aimless people are easily controlled by hedonism, lies and indifference.  They lose their identity and become willing thralls of their erstwhile benefactors who feed off their ignorance and gullible discontent.  Such people are dangerous.  Witness:

While we slept the Orcs of the Black Block have multiplied, organized and grown bold.  They are using the very same tactics their great grandfathers used eighty years ago to establish Hitler’s Socialist Reich: gangs of thugs brutalize the population and reduce them to helplessness.  The very same tactics that Lenin used to cow and paralyze Tsarist Russia.  The very same tactics every Socialist has ever used to reduce a society to terrified submission.  It is the same thing they are setting up to do here.

And they haven’t even got to the real bloody part yet.  Because, don’t cha know, 150 million murdered in the name of the betterment of mankind is just not enough.  You just can’t get enough of the benefits of Worker’s Paradise: famine, terror, mass murder and failure, more failure, continuous, humiliating failure.  Marx’s Dark Temple can only be sustained by an endless stream of human victims sacrificed on the altar of The Glorious World of Next Tuesday.

Things here in the US haven’t yet gotten to the pass in which Western Europe finds itself.  But you can bet your bottom dollar that there are folks working on solving that problem.  Black Lives Matter, for one, and we have plenty of Anti-Fa[scist] Fascists eager to bring bloody barbarism to your front door.  There are probably two things holding them back.  First, nobody likes evil a$$holes, and that is just what these people are.  One hopeful sign of the overall health of our culture is that the following the 2015-2016 progressive hissy fit at Mizzou enrolment is down 35%, Melissa Click has been fired and the university is suffering from lack of funding.

Second is the good ol’ 2nd Amendment.  Dictators have a hard time winning at King of the Mountain when the population is armed.  Which is why the first chapter in “Diktarors for Dummies” is dedicated to disarming the population gun control.

Since it is still a little early to start shooting the question arises, what to do?

Don’t miss an opportunity make a liberal’s head explode by mocking the absurdities of the Party Line.  CNN was in embarrassed when some random guy on the internet tweeted a photoshopped video of Donald Trump wrestling a man with a CNN logo over his face.  They were furious when Trump re-tweeted it.  They were stupid when they tracked the random guy down and not only threatened him, but made that threat public. Now they are desperate because all across the internet people are making videos of CNN logos over people getting punched, cars crashing, things exploding, etc.  CNN is toast.  They hate mockery, so mock them mercilessly.

Second, expose them.  Evil loves the darkness because they know that their deeds can’t stand exposure to the light.  Ever notice how Marxism advances it’s agenda by camouflaging itself as something other than what it is?  They have to, else they would never get anywhere.  Pulling their cover is vitally important as it discredits them and makes them back off until they can find a new lie with which to mask their agenda.  It was James O’Keefe’s secret videos which pulled the cover off of CNN’s fake news in the first place.  If you haven’t yet seen James’ work go over to his Project Veritas site and have a look, and donate.  This man is invaluable.

Like all soldiers in war, we are called to bend every effort to destroy the enemies of our civilization because they are bent on destroying us, and all we love.  Here’s a few lines from Macaulay’s Lays of Ancient Rome (with apologies):

Then out spake brave Horatius,

The Captain of the Gate:

“To every man upon this earth

Death cometh soon or late.

And how can man die better

Than facing fearful odds,

For the ashes of his fathers,

And the temples of his gods,

 

“And for the tender mother

Who dandled him to rest,

And for the wife who nurses

His baby at her breast,

And for the holy maidens

Who feed the eternal flame,

To save them from false [Marxists]

That wrought the deed[s] of shame?

 

The spirit of ’76

Much has been happening, and this blog has been pretty quiet.  That is because your humble correspondent is on the way to a higher tax bracket this year.

Speaking of mixed blessings, Facepalm Feinstein has issued two email communiques in the last two weeks, that makes four since March, which is four since forever.  Seems that the Donks are feeling the need to shore up their base.  They remain committed to the same designed to fail policies as ever, and fear that their Mindless Minions (TM) might be getting discouraged.  Thanks Di, for the encouraging word.

Republicans can’t be all that happy either, as whatever they are doing in Congress is what they do best: betray the voters that sent them.  At least half a dozen time they sent a Repeal Obamacare bill to President Bizarro #0’s desk knowing full well that it would be vetoed, but don’t seem to be able to muster the spine to send one to President Trump, presumably because they fear it might be signed into law.   Having won both houses of Congress and the Presidency  the Keystone Congress Critters are like the dog that caught the car, now they can’t figure out what to do with it.

So why are the Donks in such a tizzy when their nominal opposition party is in disarray?  There are a few things, which I find extremely heartening.

First, most of their top leadership is old.  Feinstein is 84, Nancy “Where Am I?” Pelosi 77, Judy Chu 63, Chuck “The Putz” Schumer 66, “Crazy Uncle” Bernie Sanders 75, Hillary “The Hag” Clinton 69.  There are some younger ones, but they aren’t that young, such as Kamala “Commie” Harris 52, Adam “Which Way Did He Go?” Schiff 57, Xavier “El Bato” Becerra 59.  Barbara “Call Me Senator” Boxer didn’t relinquish power till she was 77.  And that’s the problem right there, lust for power.  Because once they get it rather than grooming their successors they cling to it.  A sane party would see people in their 30’s and 40’s getting set to take the reins.

Second, the Dems have put most of their eggs in the top tier baskets.  Which is why they hold majorities in so few state and local legislative bodies, or governorships, or mayoralities.  They have concentrated so much on the Federal level that they’ve ceded vast tracts of the electoral landscape to Republicans.  Determined to seize and hold power at the top they have abandoned their base, and the base noticed.

Finally, the Geritol & Depends Party is losing the youth.  Given that they virtually control the educational machinery of the nation this has been a nasty surprise for them.  Many young people have been very unhappy with what the Progressive agenda has done to them and how it has ravaged their current situation and their prospects for the future.  Not only are they unhappy, they are getting vocal about it, despite the Dark Temple’s best efforts to anathematize and silence them.  Consider a few of the younger voices making themselves heard today:

What these platforms have in common is thoughtful and principled opposition to the Democratic, Progressive, Marxist agenda.  They are fresh, passionate and persuasive; the Donks and their fellow travellers hate them, but they just can’t find a way to shut them up.  And these are just a few of the many that are out there, and their numbers are growing.

The spirit of 1776 lives on.  Happy 4th of July.
