“U.S. patriotism is inseparable from imperial warfare and white supremacy. U.S. flags are the emblem of the invading war machine in Iraq today. They are the emblem of the occupying power. The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military.”
—Nicholas DeGenova, Columbia University professor
“This is not a video game. This is not a movie. This is not like anything you’ve ever encountered in your life before. The world is changing, and because of that we must change as well. Darkness is growing. But…shadows can only grow darker as the sun grows lighter.”
“And I looked, and rose up, and said to the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not afraid…remember the LORD…and fight for your brothers, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.”
Earlier this week Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant, who was shot 9 times while fighting for America in northern Iraq was hissed, booed, heckled and laughed at when he tried to address his fellow students at Columbia University in NYC.
I wanted to write about the incident immediately upon hearing about it, but thought it best to let it lay for awhile before addressing the subject—otherwise my anger might have detracted from my “journalistic detachment.” As you’ll see, I’m quite calm now. (Link)
Mr. Maschek is a true hero, and a class act who will not stoop to the level of his detractors. I’m pretty much a class act myself, but I have a few years on Maschek, and I have no problem at all in stooping to the level of his detractors. In fact, they have no idea just how low I will stoop to defend myself, my family, and my country—and I have no doubt whatsoever that all three are currently under a widespread, well thought out, and well-planned systematic attack. (Link)
The attack is so widespread that it’s, of course, hard to choose where to begin any discussion of it, but I suppose that the incident at Columbia University, and the teacher’s strike in Wisconsin, make teaching as good a place to start as any. (Link)
The “gutless wonders” that heckled Maschek did not come from a vacuum, they come from adult “gutless wonders”—who want their larval stage “traitorous americanus” trained in the same anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-freedom indoctrination that they went through. They want them raised to be the same arrogant, atheistic a—holes as mom and pop—the ACORN doesn’t fall far from the tree, and all that.
The adult stage of “traitorous americanus” generally are upscale social parasites who have grown rich by stealing from “we the people” via crony capitalism, and various ways of gaming the system, while working to destroy America. They have taken the phrase “biting the hand that feeds you” to new depths. Incredibly, they are proud of their back-stabbing, traitorous lifestyle, and are self-righteously smug about it all. (Link)
One can trace Columbia’s leftist slant to its infestation by Marxist professors from the German “Frankfurt School” in the 1930s – a “slant” perhaps most famously epitomized by the Cloward/Piven Strategy drawn up by two of Columbia’s professors in the 1960s. These Columbia teachers drew up their strategy as a way to destroy America as a free republic. Their fellow traitors across America think that the Cloward/Piven Strategy is just swell.
It is unfair however, to single out Columbia University for censure, as it is hardly alone in promulgating political correctness, identity politics, multiculturalism, et al. (multiculturalism is a doctrine so spurious, destructive, and putrid that even the spineless political elites of Europe are turning their backs on it). (Link) (Link)
The adult “traitorous americanus” were originally indoctrinated by “teachers” who passed on their own perverted anti-American ideology to their students. The same sort of “teachers” who are vociferously whining about the fact that the state of Wisconsin wants them to pony-up, and help the non-union taxpayers out. (Link)
The teachers we see marching in Madison are the kind of teachers who hold up the late Far Left Chicago thug Saul Alinsky as an icon. The same Alinsky that Secretary of State Clinton idolized in her youth (she may still have an Alinsky poster tacked to her bedroom wall for all I know). The same Alinsky that Columbia alumni Barack Hussein Obama used as a template for his “organizing” in Chicago (and elsewhere). (Link)
The same Alinsky that learned much of his extortion-style techniques from the Chicago mob. The same Alinsky that formed what he named the country’s first “#####-in,” and the country’s first “fart-in”—ha, ha. (Link)
After carefully reading Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals” (which Alinsky dedicated to Lucifer) I wrote an article about it a couple of years ago, in which I summed up his “philosophy.”
“So if we connect the dots in Alinsky’s portrait of the uber mensch, the ideal revolutionary/organizer, what do we see? A nihilistic schizophrenic, with a monumental ego (who is NOT, however, vaguely, or remotely egotistical), who uses the wrong reasons, irrationality, and any means necessary to reach a nonexistent goal. People buy this garbage? You bet—and they passionately promote this dangerous insanity.” (Link)
Alinsky was a traitorous, infantile ideologue who was, and is, revered by other traitorous, infantile ideologues. His evil, inane, insane doctrines are promulgated by his followers which include the National Education Association (NEA)—the huge teacher’s union (the largest in the country).
Do you have any idea of what a lousy job America’s “teachers” do educating our children? The more money “we the people” pour into the US educational system, the dumber our kids seem to get. (Link)
There’s an eighth grade civics test from 1954 that can be accessed on the Internet. It asks such questions as “Tell the provisions of each of the amendments,” and “Write the Preamble to the Constitution.” My daughter tells me that the Bill of Rights was mentioned briefly in passing one day in her school—that was the extent of her schooling in America’s founding principles. You call THAT an education? (Link)
I’m of an age where I can vouch for the fact that “back in the day” we were taught American civics in school, and we were taught to be proud of America, and the fact that we were Americans. Nowadays, more often than not the kids are taught to be, at best, neutral about the United States, and at worst ashamed of it. No, I take that last bit back—at worst they’re taught to hate America. Link)
Not content with dumbing down America’s children, many of our “teachers” (some, no fountains of knowledge themselves) have promoted anti-American propaganda, globalism, an entitlement mentality, and other NWO, Marxist, Fascist crapola—more indoctrination than education.
I understand that there are more than just the “teacher’s” union involved in the protests in Wisconsin, and that the numbnuts marching in Madison are not representative of many, or even most union members. It’s the union leaders and the “Marching Moron Brigade” that I find detestable. (Link)
Their idea of a “debate” is apparently shouting “Fox lies, Fox lies, Fox lies,” or some other clever. catchy meme. Speaking of catchy chants, I’ve got one for them—“Hey hey, ho ho, greedy unions gotta go!” (Link)
And then there’s the runaway Democratic Representatives, or as Michelle Malkin calls them the “fleebaggers”—an apropos term as the fleebaggers, like their post-Civil War carpetbagger namesakes, are avaricious, sneaky, and duplicitous.
It makes sense that both the Wisconsin and Indiana Democratic fleebaggers should have fled to Illinois—perhaps the most corrupt, liberal, and fiscally irresponsible state in the union (and that, by God, is saying something). I imagine that all the fleebaggers are enjoying their paid vacations, plotting with their cohorts on how best to avoid work and still get paid. (Link)
I’m glad I waited until after I had calmed down before writing this article, I don’t like writing when I’m angry, heck I don’t like the flash-bulb explosion of anger, period. A nice slow-burning “fire in the belly” will do just fine.
P.S. File under “a glimmer of sunshine:” The five Commissioners of Carroll County, Maryland voted to abolish their “Office of Sustainability” (as in “sustainable development”). They also “voted unanimously to drop out of the UN’s International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). They are the first governmental organization to do so.” (Link)
Bravo to the Commissioners of Carroll County! I pray this catches on like wild-fire. (Proof positive that the November elections changed the political scenery of America, top to bottom). (Link)
Born in June of 1951 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jim O’Neill proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1970-1974 in both UDT-21 (Underwater Demolition Team) and SEAL Team Two. A member of MENSA, he worked as a commercial diver in the waters off Scotland, India, and the United States. In 1998 while attending the University of South Florida as a journalism student, O’Neill won “First Place” in the “Carol Burnett/University of Hawaii AEJMC Research in Journalism Ethics Award.” The annual contest was set up by Carol Burnett with the money she won from successfully suing the National Enquirer for libel.
