Les Deplorables

Les Deplorables

Ah yes, in the minds of America’s domestic enemies we a the deplorables, as Hillary suitably and dutifully labeled us. Perhaps though, Hillary and those she supposedly represents should have better studied history and what can happen when the deplorables have had enough. After all, 222 years and 1 continent shouldn’t be too far for them to look.

Perhaps they need a reminder that the Girondins failed and that a Jacobinian solution is not something that we oh-so-deplorable churls automatically balk at. Perhaps it’s time for Americans to put the ways of Brissot behind us and adopt those of Robespierre.

An Insurgent Outlier?

The American EagleOf late, much as been made in the Blogosphere by Liberals and Progressives – and the more mainstream professional Democrats – about Thomas E. Mann’s and Norman J. Ornstein’s recent assault upon the GOP.

The Leftists living within America’s borders love it since it stays staunchly within their narrative experience, and reinforces their ideological beliefs.

Mostly, the focus had been upon one paragraph in their lengthy Op-ed of April 27, 2012:

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

While Mann and Ornstein meant this as approbation, there’s truth in it and it is something that the burgeoning Conservative arm of the GOP should be heartily proud of.

Yes! The current Republican Party, largely through the efforts of TEA Party and those the elected into office, is insurgent outlier in American politics. They are no longer willing to maintain the destructive farce that is, and has been for generations, the status quo of American politics. They don’t just want change, they want and demand a course correction – because that’s what we, the People told them to want.

Persian Spring

Riddle me this – Why do Liberals in the West insist on call the riots, insurrections, and rebellions still raging across much of the Muslim World the “Arab Spring” when all the key participants seem allied with Iran?

Shouldn’t we call it the “Persian Spring?”

MLK: Beyond Vietnam

I believe that just about everyone in America knows of MLK’s “I Have A Dream” speech – even if very few in America actually know much of the text of that famous address of August 28, 1963. Few though remember a later and much more controversial speech by Dr. King though.

On April 8, 1967 – a year to the day before his assassination – Rev. Martin Luther King gave this speech, entitled Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence, at the Riverside Church in New York.


MLK: Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence

I believe that Aaron McGruder is one of those few who knows of this speech. In episode 9, The Return Of The King, of his animated series Boondocks McGruder shows a alive and well Rev. King protesting the US’ response to 911 and being branded a “Hate American Traitor” by the media for doing so. This is almost exactly what really happened in ’67.

If you would like to read the full text of King’s Beyond Vietnam – A Time to Break Silence, it’s posted after the break.
