“One other thing you can look at is how universities are regarded by a Democratic Congress versus a Republican Congress. …It’s much more about anti-intellectualism than it is about [anything] political…. [Academia is] liberal, because it’s intellectual—a pursuit of knowledge. That is traditionally something the Democrats have funded and Republicans have not.” (Link)
“The current Republican Party is not really the Republican Party. It’s been hijacked by this group, that is…not just Islamaphobic but really xenophobic. I mean, basically…they believe in [some] sort of white, middle-America, gun-toting…I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.” (Link)
Kudos to James O’Keefe and his conservative activist cohorts for their recent video that caught NPR (National Public Radio) fund-raiser Ron Schiller telling the truth—as he sees it. Young Mr. O’Keefe seems on his way to forming a cottage industry of outing the truth behind the “smiley face” facade of liberal lies and obfuscation. (Link)
The above quotes are from the video, and give a rare glimpse inside the indoctrinated liberal mind-set of “Traitorous Americanus.” I have a few things to say in regard to the above quotes, and I’ll start with the top one.
Note that Schiller says that our universities are liberal because they’re “intellectual.” The implication being that anyone with any brains is, as a matter of course, liberal—no prizes for guessing what that makes conservatives. (Link)
The baleful arrogance of such a statement gives a disturbing look into the liberal weltanschauung, or world-view—and need I add, is representative of a widespread belief among the liberal elite. Is it any wonder that they feel they must herd “we the people” for our own good? (Link)
In point of fact, the liberal mental pathology, besides being uncommonly arrogant, is decidedly dumb—even brutish. It is an immature, collectivist, lock-step mentality that thrives on “group-think,” peer pressure, and group acclamation. It is decidedly narcissistic, immature—and dangerous. (Link)
The “intellectualism” of our colleges and universities, which Schiller so lauds, is to a large extent nothing more than an indoctrination into Far Left doctrines such as social justice, sustainable growth, and critical theory. (Link) (Link)
(Sidebar: The erudite sounding doctrine of critical theory simply means “Nitpick and Whine” [great name for a liberal law firm]. If you enjoy hanging around folks who kvetch and complain about everything under the sun, without offering any constructive solutions, then you’ll just love critical theory. And I mustn’t forget to mention the academic subjects of polymorphous perversity and narcissism—whoo hoo!) (Link) (Link)
While all of these “intellectual” pursuits are no doubt interesting, what about academia’s raison d’etre, the free exchange of differing ideas and viewpoints? Uh, well, that’s not doing so well. Just ask Geert Wilders from the Netherlands who was shouted down at Temple and Columbia universities, or Israeli ambassador Michael Oren who was shouted down at UC Irvine, or ask Anne Coulter, or Mark Steyn, or…well, you get the idea. (Link) (Link) (Link)
Saul Bellow, in his foreword to Alan Bloom’s “The Closing of the American Mind” wrote, “the university, in a society ruled by public opinion, was to have been an island of intellectual freedom where all views were investigated without restriction.” In these days of stagnating, strangling political correctness, such an ideal is laughably far-fetched and out of reach. (Link) (Link)
Conservatives are, of course, all in favor of a healthy intellectual debate, but we are vehemently opposed to those who attempt to silence free speech, and steal our liberties. If that makes me “unintellectual” in the minds of Schiller and his ilk, then so be it—call me a dummy. Considering the source, I consider the appellation something of a compliment. When I rate praise and approbation from “Traitorous Americanus”—I’ll have reason to be worried. What about the rest of Schiller’s observations?
His comment about how the Republican Party has been hijacked by a group of “sort of white, middle-America, gun-toting” xenophobes, is of course reminiscent of Obama’s comment about how small town Pennsylvanians “cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them…as a way to explain their frustrations.” Apparently, “we the people” are just too darn stupid to know what’s in our best interest—and certainly we can’t be trusted with loaded weapons! Might as well give a hand grenade to a monkey, for crying out loud.
Seriously, what’s up with all the gun ban hoopla among the liberal intelligentsia? It’s all about control, pure and simple. As Michael LeMieux wrote in a recent article, anybody who tells you that outlawing guns will “curb criminal behavior is either an idiot, or has an agenda of control over the liberties of the population.” (Link)
God knows there are any number of liberal idiots (“useful” idiots) who believe that guns are just plain mean and not nice, but among the ruling elite the name of the game is control, and you had better believe that they are itching to take away “we the people’s” Second Amendment right—“…the right…to keep and bear arms….” (Link)
Does a gun ban really cut down on violent crime? In a word, no. Would taking away our right to “keep and bear arms” leave us largely defenseless against a hostile takeover of the United States? Yes. Why do you think Far Left ideologues have historically pushed so strenuously for gun bans. (Link)
Who do you think suffers most when gun bans go into effect—the criminals? Not hardly—they’re criminals for God’s sake—they couldn’t care less about obtaining guns legally. It’s the law abiding citizen who gets screwed by gun bans. Let’s look at a few examples of differing gun laws, and their effect on violent crime. (Link)
In 2008, the Supreme Court struck down Washington D.C.‘s handgun ban, and in the following year the murder rate plummeted 25%. In 1997 Great Britain enacted very stringent handgun laws, and yet their violent crime rate has continued to steadily climb. Switzerland, a country with one of the world’s highest gun ownership percentages per capita, also has one of the world’s lowest crime rates. (Link) (Link)
Facts and figures can, of course, be manipulated and distorted to twist data so that they can “prove” most anything, and I don’t trust most media statistics regarding gun crime, nor what the federal government says, and I certainly don’t trust anything that comes out of the UN. Nevertheless, I’ve seen enough data on gun bans to feel that it generally jives with what I’ve come to know through a lifetime of experience, and what I’ve come to understand of human nature. And what might that be? (Link)
I’ve come to understand, as the founders of the United States did, that an unarmed citizenry is “easy pickins” for a tyrant. That is why they wisely proclaimed that “we the people” should have the right to keep and bear arms. If correctly understood, the Second Amendment is not only a right, but a duty. Because we are “endowed by [our] Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” then it is not merely our run-of-the-mill duty to protect those rights—it is our sacred duty.
I’ll finish up this article with some closing words about Schiller’s comments on conservatives being “…seriously racist, racist people” (as opposed to “un-racist, racist people?). Whatever, as the saying goes “that dog don’t hunt” anymore.
Liberals are the racists. It’s true conservatives that believe with MLK, that a person should “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” When a black person runs away from the liberal “plantation,” and tries to free themselves from the shackles and chains, the liberals hunt them down with a vengeance. Look at how they have attacked Justice Clarence Thomas, if you doubt me. Any conservative black person can tell you ugly stories about being attacked by the left. Watch how Herman Cain gets attacked should he elect to run for POTUS. (Link) (Link)
Recently they captured the individual who purportedly left a bomb (it thankfully didn’t explode) at an MLK parade in Spokane, Washington back in January. Not to make light of what could have been a horrific tragedy, but I can see Attorney General Holder getting passionate about this one, as it involves “my people,” as opposed to common everyday US citizens—“those people.” (Link) (Link)
At any rate, I heard something on a news report concerning this incident that really perked up my ears. The announcer said that the suspect had ties with a white supremacy group, and the report went on to mention “The Turner Diaries,” and “right-wing extremist” Timothy McVeigh. (Link)
McVeigh, you might recall, was found guilty and executed for murdering 168 people (injuring 450) with a truck bomb in 1995. McVeigh was inspired by a vile book called “The Turner Diaries,” which was written by American Nazi William Pierce, and published in 1978. The book is a fictional account of “the diaries of Earl Turner, member of an underground white supremacist army, [and] provides an inside account of an Aryan revolution that overturns the United States government….” (Link)
The group that the Spokane bomber (Kevin William Harpham) purportedly has ties to is a neo-Nazi group called the National Alliance, which was founded by “The Turner Diaries” author William Pierce in 1974 (actually a renaming of the National Youth Alliance). It’s also worth noting that neo-Nazism and “The Turner Diaries” were influential in the horrific Texan dragging death of James Byrd in 1998. (Link) (Link)
So where am I going with all this? Where I’m going is the fact that the Communists and Nazis are opposite sides of the same coin. They are both Far Left collectivist doctrines. The American Nazi Party and its ilk are no more right-wing than Code Pink. Yes, you could say that the Nazis are to the right of the Communists, but they are both still Far Left ideologies. In the same way you might say that the Tea Party is to the left of The John Birch Society, but they’re both still right-wing. (Link) (Link)
I realize that I’ve hammered on this subject before (as have a growing number of others), and numerous people have described what I’m saying in the past, but way too many conservatives are still asleep to the ramifications of this truth, and need to connect the dots between the Nazis, the Progressives, the Communists, Eugenics, population control, environmentalism, the Rockefellers, George Soros, Maurice Strong, the UN, Woodrow Wilson, the Ku Klux Klan, the ACLU/SPLC, Hitler, the Islamists, Goldman Sachs, the Fed, the NWO, and all the rest. I won’t even mention “controlled opposition.” (Link)
If you’re some neo-Nazi white supremacist who’s under the delusion that you are a “right-winger,” then you need to wake up and switch sides, buckeroo. Hint: on the home page of the American Nazi Party you’ll find that they believe in social justice—you won’t find any social justice promoting in any Tea Party website that I’m aware of. (Simply clarifying what the “sides” look like can be a huge help.) (Link)
“We the people” would be wise to remember Sun Tsu’s sage advice from “The Art of War,” “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” (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.
