… If You Want Me To Be

If You Want Me To Be

Dear Leftists, Liberals, Progressives, Feminists, Queer and Trans Activists, and Blacktivists – Really! Just about all you who are likely Democrat voters,

  • I’ll be Deplorable… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Ignorant… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Selfish… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Racist… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Sexist and Misogynist… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Homophobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Transphobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Islamophobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Xenophobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be a Fascist… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll even be a Nazi… If you want me to be and you buy me the uniform and paraphernalia. 😉

And, of course, I’m not being accommodating. Nor is this really just a paroxysm of sarcasm on my part, though it is heavily laced with sarcasm. I just accept that I’m going to “be” whatever your sort(s) decide that I am since you’ve developed, promulgated, and/or adopted such definitions of these terms that make it so that I am all of these things by your criteria.

Sincerely,
A White American Man

And therein is the sad truth. Americans’ domestic enemies operate within a framework of narrative and lived experience, not facts, and they created their “Liberalexicon” accordingly. Hence, I and the rest of us are in their minds exactly whatever bad thing that believe us to be. They’re the scions of Humpty Dumpty and When they use a word, it means just what they choose it to mean—neither more nor less.

And, My Fellow Americans, remember that the majority of our people’s domestic enemies believe in these ever-broadening and ever-shifting definitions and, hence, truly believe that we are, each and every one of us, whatever “bad thing” that their specific hatred is pointed at any given moment. So they cannot be reasoned with since who could expect anyone to reason with or accept any argument from such deplorable people as they “know” us to be.

The ACLU’s New Honesty

The ACLU's New Honesty
The ACLU’s New Honesty

Here’s another bit of interest from the Left’s now largely defunct hysterical mob action over Justice Kavanaugh: The ACLU in a rare paroxysm of honesty came out and campaigned  – to the point of spending millions of dollars on multi-state ads – against Kavanaugh’s nomination solely because of Ford’s now discredited allegations against him.

But, at least this is a much needed bit of honesty on the ACLU’s part.  And it is honesty, as a leaked internal memo shows clearly. The ACLU has officially abandoned their commitment to the Bill of Rights in favor of “Social Justice.” Now they’re just another hate group and, sadly, a well-funded one at that, with a large stable of lawyers to use in lawfare against the American people.

The Times We Live In

The Times We Live In When Normal Is Wrong
The Times We Live In, When Normal Is Wrong

We, most assuredly sadly, live in an age where all that is not male, not White, and/or not heterosexual is held up as greatness and in which anything male, White, and/or heterosexual is decried as abhorrent or, at the very least, utterly unworthy of praise or recognition due to that very maleness, Whiteness, and/or heterosexuality.

And do be aware and assured that our domestic enemies whole issue with normal people is that they are still the majority and still exemplars of- and adherents to the long-standing, dominant culture in and of America.
