AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Liberty and Individualism are our Birthrights. Refuse – ever – to Surrender Either.

A righteous call to arms by Protein Wisdom on Twitter:

…canceling heretics; that it permits them to block roads, create no-go zones for non-rioters, prosecute those who stand against them while themselves avoiding persecution.

Leftist-run cities have shown what happens when police and federal law enforcement are demonized and…

…unsupported by elected leaders; when local leadership can seize “emergency powers” — then pick and choose who to punish: rioters are exempt from lockdowns; you can sing in the streets but not in churches; masks are required, but not for them.

They can tell you what counts..

…as a substantive meal, essentially holding businesses hostage to their arbitrary and incoherent edicts: pot dispensaries and large warehouse stores can open; gyms and restaurants cannot.

They decide what hate is; what racism is; who is unclean; who is deserving of both…

…punishment and reverence. They presume to control and police every narrative, and in that way, control and police every person.

They reduce you to your skin color, your “gender” — but mostly, to your politics: individualism, respect for rule of law, constitutional order…

…and the color-blind equanimity that comes with it — all of these things are reduced to the cancer of “whiteness.” “Systemic racism” is their empty catechism; it creates a Kafka trap in which you are defined by your original sin of birth, but you can neither receive…

…absolution or forgiveness.

In short, you are defined by your birth, your color, your sex — and there is no escape: either you are born an oppressor who must be fought, or you are born a victim entitled to perpetual grievance, regardless of how much power you actually enjoy.

This is the very structure of authoritarianism run through populist fascism.

It is where the left always takes you. The left has brought back segregation as “racial separatism”; they’ve stoked racial and class division; they’ve sought to control speech, which controls thought…

…which ultimately, is meant to constrain you.

While the left riots in the streets, pulls down statues, demands the sacrificial death of pancake salespeople & rice peddlers, & calls for UNEQUAL treatment under the law, with special dispensation for favored identity groups…

…they bellow the self-righteous claim that it is THEY who are fighting fascism.

But know this: fascism is what they ARE. And they prefer that system because they have presumed to be its leadership class, its enforcement mechanism, and its performative philosophers…

Either “moderates” or those who aren’t especially political wake up to these truisms, or our country as founded will fall.

Resist the conformists. The corporate enablers.

Remember this: in the fight against fascism, YOU are the outlaws, the true guerrilla warriors.

So fight

Liberty and individualism are our birthrights.

Refuse — ever — to surrender either.

There is Literally No Way to Play Defense on this Stuff. The Game Has Been Rigged.

John Hayward nails it again with regards to the Leftist enemy we face.

From the radical left-wingers, to their army of supporters to their willing propaganda arm of the mainstream media. Not to mention the entire Democrat Party, both federal and local.

Once the nutball left-wing meme gets a signal boost from legacy media, suddenly it becomes the center of opinion for the online Left, the “mainstream” opinion, the thing “everybody” believes. That’s what terrorizes other media outlets and corporations into compliance.

And of course most big corporations now have Woke Left agents riddling their management structure, ready to activate at the first hint of a social media crusade and urge the top brass to take a knee as quickly as possible.

It’s a system that inherently works against any sort of “conservatism” or defense at all. Where do normal people go to tell Trader Joe’s they DON’T want their products renamed? How could the normies ever generate the kind of social media heat that would get them noticed?

There is literally no way to play defense on this stuff. The game has been rigged so that normal people never get to roll the dice. Your opinion is not consulted. You have no voice in corporate boardrooms or major media editorial boards.

It’s like the statue jihad: there is no real way for the people who don’t want everything torn down or renamed to defend tradition. People who have jobs can’t spend all day on vigilante statue-defense detail. No one is asking for their vote on keeping the old America intact.

Because the Right was long ago frightened away from making populist appeals or taking a firm stand on social issues, there isn’t much to slow down the social media-driven lefty crusades. Normal people have been told they lack the moral standing to speak up.

It all happens so fast that the battles are over, the window of political possibility shifted, before the normies even know they’re in a fight. They just turn on the TV and see that perfectly harmless words and symbols have been redefined as “offensive” in the blink of an eye.

Remember how we always used to hear that it was time for a “great national discussion” about whatever the Left wanted, and that “discussion” was really supposed to be a one-sided lecture, where they talk and we were expected to listen in reverent silence?

You don’t really hear that little cliche about “national conversations” any more, because the Left doesn’t even think you deserve THAT minimal courtesy. They’re not interested in even PRETENDING to persuade you. They have all the “national conversations” between themselves now.

The Left’s internal Great National Conversations are all shrieking panic attacks held in a matter of hours on social media. They lack even the thin pretense of exchanging ideas that the old Great National Conversations had. They’re vicious power struggles between lefty factions.

The results bounce up to legacy media in that feedback loop, and presto change-o, the New Normal is established so fast that even left-wingers of the older school can be left reeling in shock as they’re abruptly redefined into reactionary enemies of the latest crusade.

Yesterday’s feminist heroine becomes today’s hated anti-trans bigot in a nanosecond, yesterday’s sincere liberal gets canceled because the meaning of “free speech” has been changed. What chance do the rest of us have, when we aren’t respected or consulted at all? /end

A Government Should Fear its People?

So recently I read someone posted that their favorite line from a movie was the following line from the movie ‘V for Vendetta’: “People should not fear their government, government should fear its people.”

That’s a nice and dandy sentiment and all, but it is meaningless… considering that these people who don’t want to fear their government, and want their government to fear them instead, continue to vote the same totalitarian jackasses into government positions for DECADES.

So yeah, it’s nice to pimp that line, but it’s meaningless without action. Want the government to fear the people? Then the people need to stop voting the totalitarian jackasses into government and continue voting the current ones out of government.

In other words, the problem is not the government, the problem is the people who voted to put such government in place.

Liberalism is Not Dying, it is Only Gaining More Power and Influence

I added this comment to the discussion of this post at This Ain’t Hell: Is Janet Napolitano FOS?

The internet will kill Liberalism.

Laughing Wolf Says: Sadly, I doubt it. Progressiveism killed/supplanted classical liberalism in modern politics, and progressive thought will simply not accept any fact that contradicts it. Any such fact is simply a lie, or is from a source that can’t be accepted, or any other tactic that allows it to be dismissed. Nor is dismissal enough; rather, it must be discredited at all costs (‘Swiftboating’ being a good example).

Rational people of any and all stripes will get it. Your modern progressive never will, and will do anything at all to ensure as few others as possible will get that information or point.

I agree with Laughing Wolf. Naive Conservatives/Right-of-center ideologues have been saying since the days of Rathergate (fake TANG memos created by a major news outlet in order to deceive the American public in the effort to take down a sitting President) and the firing of CNN’s Eason Jordan (who admitted that CNN lied/covered up the truth about Saddam’s Iraq in order to maintain access to the country for ‘news’ purposes) that the MF-ing media is dying and alternative media and the internet would save us from the enemy within that calls itself the media. But that did not happen.

Instead, the MF-ing media — along with the ‘entertainment’ industry, public schools, universities and the Left-wing internet — simply gained even more power and influence to spread their lies.

These groups’ lies about the economy and war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan led to the Democrats taking power in Congress in 2006. Their continued lies led to the Democrats taking super-majorities in Congress in 2008. Their despicable lies and smears and utter destruction of Sarah Palin, combined with their lies and cover-up and over-the-top idol-worship of Barack Obama, succeeded in vaulting into power an Administration full of America-hating socialists, Marxists, anti-capitalists and advocates of the Cloward-Piven strategy to destroy America.

It has been 7 years since the MF-ing media deliberately made sh*t up to take down a sitting President. In those 7 years, instead of the public seeing the MF-ing media as the despicable, evil lying pieces of MF-ing shit that they are, they still believe all their lies.

Ask anyone whom they blame for the current state of the economy. Do they look back at the Bush Administration and GOP time in Congress, where we had record highs on Wall Street and low unemployment in the 5% range, and understand that the deficit spending that the GOP did was on all the things that liberals wanted (education, health care, etc)? Do they look back and understand that the Democrats were against the GOP spending not because it was too high, but because it was too low? Do they look back and understand that the Bush Administration and GOP Congress were lowering the deficit from 2005-2006-2007? Do they understand that it was when the Democrats took over Congress in JAN 2007 that the economy started to tank? Do they understand that the Democrats were the ones to have spent us into oblivion?

Do they understand that the Bush Administration and the GOP were working since 2001 to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as they realized that it was not sustainable, and were trying to avoid a housing market crash? Do they understand that it was the Democrats — including ACORN and Barack Obama — led by Chris Dodd and Barney Frank who blocked the GOP’s efforts to prevent the crisis by demonizing them as racists and scare-mongers?

Do they understand that the GOP has been proposing healthcare alternatives for years, only to be blocked by the Democrats? Do they understand that the Democrats have been blocking domestic oil drilling for decades, yet opening up drilling to any and all foreign countries, all the while whining that we are too dependent on “foreign oil”?

No, they don’t understand any of that. Ask your average American about all this and the majority of them put all the blame on the Bush Administration and the GOP and have nothing but praise and idol-worship of the Democrats and Obama.

It’s absolutely fothermucking ridiculous.

But that is how little power the internet has compared to decades-long indoctrination by ‘progressives’ in public schools, universities, the ‘entertainment’ industry (TV, movies, songs, ‘celebrity’ activism, etc) and the MF-ing media.

Public Sector Unions are a Money Laundering Operation for the Democrat Party

Plainly and simply, that is why Public Sector Unions exist: to launder money from the American taxpayer to the Democrat Party.

Via the Maha Rushie: Governor Scott Walker Isn’t Caving

Also, this from The Tatler: “State Rep. Nick Milroy is the Democratic state representative from Wisconsin’s 73rd assembly district.” He was on the radio. One of the hosts “pointed out that union membership was split by their votes in 2010, 49% for Democrats and 47% for Republicans, nearly an even split.” But, despite the fact that union members vote almost 50-50 Republican-Democrat, unions donated 93% of their total contributions to Democrats.” Only 7% to Republicans, yet half of the union members vote Republican. So there’s quite a disparity. Union members vote 50-50, essentially, but 93% of their dues goes to Democrats. “The question was asked if the assemblyman could understand why Republicans were not in favor of having tax payer funded dues go to fund Democrat campaigns? The assemblyman contended that public employees can opt out of the unions. But when pressed about how even those that opt out must pay union dues, the assemblyman suggested that those people that didn’t want to be part of a union could find other work.”

He said if people don’t like paying union dues that are used to support Democrat candidates they can always get another job. So be it. That’s your choice. If you don’t like the way your union dues is being spent, quit the union, get another job. If people don’t like paying dues that are used to support Democrat candidates they can always get another job. Notice how this is a one-way street. And how about these union members voting for Republicans getting literally no representation whatsoever for their donations? Zilch, zero, nada. Of course the point here is not quitting, people don’t like paying union dues. That’s not the point. The point is what about the taxpayers who don’t like paying the dues? Because that’s who’s paying the dues.

Can we go through this again? What we have here is a money laundering operation. You have public sector employees. They are members of public unions. These public unions support Democrats 95% to 100% of the time with money. Who pays the salaries of state unionized employees? Taxpayers do. Not some evil CEO fat cat. Joe Six-Pack. Joe the Plumber. Whoever it is, Mary the Riveter. These people living in Wisconsin, their taxes hire and pay the salaries of public sector unions which are already twice as high as what they make. Then, the dues from these union workers go to the Democrat Party. So the dues originate in the wages earned by private citizens. So it’s Joe Six-Pack and Joe the Plumber and all the other taxpayers in Wisconsin whose money is going to the Democrat Party via a money laundering operation through the unions. That’s what’s happening, pure and simple. That’s the real question. That’s what’s going on.
