#Stop White People

The State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton is now offering a course called “#StopWhitePeople2K16” as part of routine training for residential assistants.

Nothing screams tolerance and diversity like a university workshop designed to target white people.

The university’s residential assistant training schedule lists “#StopWhitePeople2016” on its roster, with the mission of giving RA’s an “overview of disabilities in Higher Education.”

The presenters of the course, Ciaran Slattery, Nicholas Pulakos, and Urenna Nwogwugwu, are all RAs at the state-funded college, which describes itself as New York’s highest-ranking public college. They state their purpose is to “help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within,” presumably the “white” society they plan to “stop” at the event.

The three RAs claim they will give “#StopWhitePeople2K16” course attendees the “tools” to respond to “uneducated people” with “‘good’ arguments.” You know, the people who preach mutual respect, equality under God, and constitutional freedoms. Those people.

They also state they will help other RAs at the state-funded college “hopefully expand upon what they may already know”: that white people are cancer, of course.

Get a load of the course description:

“The premise of this session is to help others take the next step in understanding diversity, privilege, and the society we function within.”

I developed a micro-aggression just reading that nonsense. (Todd Starnes)

The hilarious fact that they are, in and of themselves RACISTS, is almost as hilarious as the fact that if you presented that to them their brains would be totally incapable of processing such thoughtcrimes and they’d just consider you “uneducated” and probably say something condescending and sanctimonious.

“We verified that the actual program content was not ‘anti-white’,” said Brian Rose, vice president for student affairs.

Orwell’s work is done.

“The terrifying implication here is not that students on campus think it is appropriate to call an event by that name, but that the university seems to endorse it as a proper part of a RA training,” wrote Howard Hecht in the Binghamton Review. “If Binghamton University is going to endorse ‘stopping’ someone due to his or her skin color, without any explanation for why he or she must be ‘stopped,’ would that not be a real example of racism on campus?”

The training session obviously did not invent the phrase “stop white people.” The line is a popular one among social media users and is used to critique alleged ignorance of white privilege, ranging from jabs at overtly offensive behavior to jokes about petty subjects like white people dancing — the class’ name was probably a reference to this cultural meme. 

Thanks to the SUNY Binghamton class, the hashtag #StopWhitePeople was trending on Twitter Wednesday. Although, while many posted about SUNY Binghamton, many users ignored the news story in favor of unrelated posts with the hashtag. The trending topic also led to an angry backlash from people upset about the potentially divisive interpretations of the hashtag. 

Ya think?

Racism as “civil rights”. Wow! Orwell’s work is done. Their brains are overcooked mush and they have no clue that it is.

Binghamton University has not commented on it, but the Daily Caller points out the school’s official R.A. guide encourages “an environment where interaction between people of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds as well as the sharing of divergent opinions and beliefs are respected and welcomed.”

So when the course attendees  are given the “tools” to respond to “uneducated people” with “‘good’ arguments” that would be the people with divergent opinions and beliefs, right? 🙂

In other words, White People, Conservatives, and Religious People (or just ANYONE who disagrees with them at all). The Un-Persons of the Liberal “tolerance” and “diversity” cult.

Bayou Bullshit

Remember the charges of “flying over” and “not caring enough” during Katrina?

The FEMA Trailers and the $2500 Debit cards?

Well, Louisiana suffered major flooding that the state’s capital that has more than 106,000 residents and households to register for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. More than 60,000 homes were damaged, officials said, and 13 people were killed.

No outcry from the Media and the Leftist like Katrina. Hmmm…

But Obama was too busy vacationing at Martha’s Vineyard (remember the cracks about Crawford, Texas or Kinnebunkport,ME??) to be bothered.

Hillary doesn’t care.

The Media let it slide. After all, they are their side.

Trump went down there, not for a photo-op, and was criticized by the Leftist for it.

Typical. But don’t worry, they aren’t biased.🙂

Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent, said Monday that she too plans a trip to the flood site. Her campaign said in a statement that she would come to the state at an unspecified time in the future.
“This month’s floods in Louisiana are a crisis that demand a national response,” she said. “I am committed to visiting communities affected by these floods, at a time when the presence of a political campaign will not disrupt the response, to discuss how we can and will rebuild together.”
I’ll be there when I feel like it. Right now, you aren’t important enough for me.

So what difference does it make, anyways?

playing through

The people finally shame our Dear Leadr in a pity Photo-Op stop and what does he do?

He lectures them on his Agenda!

President Obama can’t be bothered to cut his vacation short to do his job as residents of Louisiana grapple with disastrous flooding, but his administration does have time to send an offensive memo.

The Washington Times reported that the Obama Department of Justice sent a 16-page guidance to Louisiana residents on Tuesday who are receiving federal disaster assistance, warning them not to engage in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”

The memo states that the guidance’s frameworks “highlight the importance of complying with nondiscrimination requirements of civil rights statutes, addressing the needs of the whole community, and ensuring equal opportunity to access recovery efforts.”

Louisianans are struggling to help themselves and their neighbors with food and shelter in a disaster that has seen the deaths of 13 people as well as the damage of over 40,000 homes, but the Obama administration thinks a lecture on diversity is most important.

Some were rightfully offended by the inappropriate memo, including The American Conservative’s Rod Dreher, who said in a post on Thursday: “E]verywhere you look you can find black folks and white folks loving on each other, helping each other through this crisis.”

Dreher referenced Obama’s refusal to leave his vacation in his rebuke of the “long bureaucratic memo” sent to Louisianans by the “Department of Justice and many other agencies of the executive branch overseen by He Who Cannot Be Troubled to Leave Martha’s Vineyard.”

The memo cited instances they deem discriminatory from previous disasters such as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, including “numerous media reports [that] showed images of African Americans stranded on roofs in New Orleans.”

The guidance claims the images “exposed significant inequalities in access to emergency response and recovery efforts”

The memo also referenced a renter who preferred to rent to “two white females” in an ad directed to disaster evacuees. Funny, I don’t remember a memo going out about the Claremont Colleges students who put an ad out where they refused to room with white people…

While Drehrer said that Louisianans need to “own our mistakes” when it comes to discrimination, he noted that during this disaster, the last thing they needed was a lecture that ignores the way the community has come together including people of all races.

Drehrer cited a local man named Jimmy who told him in an email that “not many things get me seething, but this does,” and called the Obama administration”dividers instead of uniters.”

The email went on to say: “Look no further than this ‘guidance’ press release telling us in the middle of it to be sure not to be racist, y’all. Meanwhile, our President enjoys golfing and Martha’s Vineyard and sunny skies. No visits, not even that reviled [George W.] Bush flyover. Just politically motivated, radically laced memos.”

Nice job Obama, way to miss the mark yet again! (endingthefed.com)

But a bullsit bulleye for ticking off Agenda items. And the media will no doubt be gushing over his “compassion” and “sensitivity”.

BARF!

Social Justice Warriors Beware

From Chicks on The Right:

I’ll be curious to see how the raging lunatic SJWs take this news (or if they’ll simply ignore it).

They’ll ignore it. Thoughtcrimes are always ignored. Facts not on the Agenda, doubly so.

According to this, the scholarly journal “The New Atlantis” published a research study about sexuality and gender. The study basically debunks EVERYTHING popular opinion has told us about human sexual orientation and gender identity being innate. Bottom Line: The argument that “I was born this way” does not hold up under scientific scrutiny –

The belief that sexual orientation is an innate, biologically fixed human property—that people are ‘born that way’—is not supported by scientific evidence.

 

Likewise, the belief that gender identity is an innate, fixed human property independent of biological sex—so that a person might be a ‘man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’—is not supported by scientific evidence.

 

Only a minority of children who express gender-atypical thoughts or behavior will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood. There is no evidence that all such children should be encouraged to become transgender, much less subjected to hormone treatments or surgery.

 

Non-heterosexual and transgender people have higher rates of mental health problems (anxiety, depression, suicide), as well as behavioral and social problems (substance abuse, intimate partner violence), than the general population. Discrimination alone does not account for the entire disparity.

Oh gee, denying your biological makeup in favor of your FEEEEEEEEELINGS leads to mental health problems? Who could have guessed?

In this clip, the editor of the journal interviews the top researchers on this study, Dr. Paul McHugh and Dr. Lawrence Mayer, both of Johns Hopkins University –

 

“Science is never settled.” Dr. McHugh – you are my new favorite person!

Note how Dr. Mayer points out that there just isn’t enough long-term data for how transgenderism – particularly in children – affect people over the course of their lives. Yet people are insisting that children AND adults can just “feel” that they were born in the wrong body and they have to go through all these mental and physical hoops to get there, as well as forcing the rest of society to deny what is right in front of our faces!

We’ve talked about medical and scientific professionals’ findings on this subject before and, more often than not, we get quite a bit of blowback from the left about it. This is just adding one more scientific source that says “Biology doesn’t work like that.” And certainly not on the scale that social justice Tumblrinas would have you believe (you spend enough time on Tumblr, you’d swear that EVERYBODY in the world is LGBTQIAAXYZWTFBBQ).

I’m not surprised that these researchers came to these conclusions. I think I’m more surprised that The New Atlantis actually published it (admittedly, this is the first I’ve heard of The New Atlantis. But then again, I don’t keep tabs on the eleventy-skillion scholarly journals that exist out there). Politically correct academia doesn’t typically make it a habit of publicly admitting findings that are going to hack off their Cult of Social Justice masters. So, I have to applaud The New Atlantis for having the brass ones to actually do this.

Indoctrination

IDIC

I just got to watch the Star Trek 50th Anniversary Special that was The History Channel last weekend (I was distracted by my computer crash) and it made me weep. It really did.
Mostly because we as humans don’t seem to aspire to the aspirations of Star Trek anymore and that makes me sad. I have found recently that one of the reasons I am drawn to both Star Trek & Doctor Who is that innate sense of hope that pervades both series. Hope, that I don’t have or see. That inspires.
But especially in the last few years I see not only less of this I see it’s polar opposite – Political Correctness- and that makes me sad. Where we can’t debate or disagree with one another anymore. It’s all “I’m right” and that’s it. Where you get banned for making a point that someone else thinks is potentially “offensive”. But the essence of Free Speech is to be able to offend people. To make them think. To make them question. That’s what Star Trek all the time. They said what was considered ‘radical’ like having a Black Woman as an Officer on the Bridge. To wonder why being Black on one side of your face makes the guy with the black on the other side so different that you hate them. That may have been a bit blunt in it’s metaphor but it had a profound effect on me as a kid.
But I guess that was just my “White Privilege” speaking. After all, it the current thinking that all White people are inherently racists, right?
People who disagree with you are inherently hateful  and disrespectful.
Where pettiness and grievances is all that we have left in common.
That’s not Star Trek.
That’s “Day of The Dove”. 🙂
That’s Orwell.
That’s not Freedom.
It’s not Hope.
It’s not Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.
It’s just hate. Hate with an Agenda.
And I’m good at hate. Trust me.
It comes from growing up the way I did. Always being excluded. Always being made fun of. Never, ever, being a part of anything.
That’s why I like Star Trek. Why I like Doctor Who. So much more.
It’s so much more. We can be so much more.
But we have to want to be.
That’s why fandom is important to me. It gives me hope.
But I look at “microagressions” and “diversity” and “inclusion” and “hate speech and the Wars of Race, Gender, Class, and so on and I don’t have that hope.
Hope is fantastic thing. I don’t think we have much of it anymore and I don’t think man”y people want us to have it.
That’s the sad part.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”–Albert Einstein

But we have stopped, haven’t we. Because we don’t to be a (insert demeaning label here) or we don’t want to hear what the other person says because it doesn’t “respect” our views. Meanwhile, we don’t “respect” there’s anyhow.

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” Desmond Tutu

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.” Robert H. Schuller

it’s statistically unlikely that I will see Doctor Who or Star Trek’s 100th Anniversary in 2063 and 2066 respectively but I can still Hope, can’t I? 🙂

Ignoble

My man Derek Hunter scores again.

In a social media-driven world, everyone is a brand. When everyone becomes a brand, virtue signaling is destined to become an epidemic. When you’re a liberal, the best way to show how much more virtuous you are than other people is to become offended. The more trivial the issue you are offended by, the more caring, enlightened and, yes, virtuous you appear to other liberals. Moreover, if you think white privilege, racism and rape culture are running rampant, you’ll want to find ways to distinguish yourself from the masses, whom you view as troglodytes.  

I got banned from a Facebook Page I had been on for years by a Liberal because I said that Klinger (from M*A*S*H) could now go to the bathroom at Target.

It was deemed “potentially transphobic and political”.

And the Liberal was offended. So, I merely thanked him for his commitment to “Diversity” and got banned for not taking their Orwellian Political Correctness “seriously” enough.

As the great Thomas Sowell has said, “The charge is often made against the intelligentsia and other members of the anointed that their theories and the policies based on them lack common sense. But the very commonness of common sense makes it unlikely to have any appeal to the anointed. How can they be wiser and nobler than everyone else while agreeing with everyone else?”

Liberals are so wise, so noble, so unlike all you racists out there reading this that they’re offended by things that no one else would even think about. For example…

1) The Color Of Park Ranger Uniforms: Apparently, we need to change the color of Park Ranger uniforms because it might frighten illegal aliens entering the parks illegally or something….

For a minute there I thought he said Power Rangers, because this was too stupid to be read correctly. But that’s Liberalism for ya….

“The Park Rangers have offended someone, but not just anyone or any single individual. It seems the Rangers have offended and are said to be scaring an entire race of people. Yes, after 100 years of Park Ranger uniforms not offending anyone, it seems now the “Latino community” has a palpable fear of them.

And probably “always has” but NOW they are speaking up. After all, Liberals view themselves as COURAGEOUS in the face of bigotry and hatred.

Just not when they are being bigoted and hateful.🙂

We know this because the designated representative of the entire Latino community said so. Wait, Maite Arce is not the duly elected, rightfully chosen representative of all Latinos everywhere? No – apparently not. She does, however, speak for a radical leftist group, similar to La Raza, the Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF), who promote the causes of illegal aliens – but only Latinos. If you are a Norwegian illegal – she doesn’t care.

La Raza, “The Race”. The people who want the US to give all of Southern Arizona back to Mexico because white people stole it in the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hildago!

Now what could possibly be her and her groups beef? It seems Park Ranger uniforms too closely resemble those of the border patrol and I.C.E. agents. Oh, the horror!

But The Border Patrol was neutered years ago by Obama and Holder (and now Lynch).

Near Gila Bend, AZ  (80 Miles south of Phoenix and several hundred miles from the Border!)

…Arce says that, “We are calling for drastic and scary change. One example I can give you is with the Latino community, especially among the border states, but even nationwide, just the simple color of the uniforms that rangers wear. It’s such a shame that something as simple as the uniform and its similarity to the border patrols’ uniform – in the coloring – could be very threatening to certain segments of the Latino population.”

Of course it’s not one example – it’s the only example and we all know what “certain segments of the Latino population” she is referring to – the only “segment” who might be concerned with being caught and deported. Sadly I don’t know where this fear originates. I.C.E. and the Border Patrol are under orders to catch and release if they even catch. So why on Earth should illegals fear the Park Rangers?”

2) “Vote Trump” Written In Chalk On The Sidewalks Of College Campuses: We’ve now reached the point where liberal students have become so sheltered that merely seeing support for a candidate that they don’t like sends them into a tizzy.

Just hours before four bombs ripped apart two transportation systems in Europe, Emory students were dealing with their own supposed terror situation. Sometime on Sunday night, someone had the audacity to scribble “Trump 2016,” “Vote Trump,” and “Trump!!!” with a writing utensil preferred by toddlers. The erasable chalk around the campus, with a simple political message, was all it took for these easily offended people to completely lose it, suffering emotional unrest that officials were forced to deal with.

 

The campus publication, The Emory Wheel, actually took this “chalk situation” seriously, seemingly siding with the crybaby college students who demanded to know how someone could rape their “safe space” with a candidate’s last name. Rather than walking over the words, or simply wiping away the words instead of their tears, 40 students banded together to protest this sidewalk “terrorism” inside the administration building.

…“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe here,” one female student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”

Been there done this one in the past.

3) Calling America A “Land of Opportunity”: “The University of California sent a handout to faculty recently that includes a list of offensive statements. According to the handout, ‘America is the land of opportunity’ will be banned from campus.

 

…A University of California faculty leader-training handout instructed professors not to say that “America is the land of opportunity” because that’s a racist, sexist microaggression.

According to the handout, called “Tool: Recognizing Microaggressions and the Messages they Send,” the statement assert’[s] that race and gender [do] not play a role in life successes’ — despite the fact that saying opportunities exist and saying that opportunities are more easily attainable for some people than others are not mutually exclusive assertions.

Other microaggressions listed on the document include asking, ‘Where are you from or where were you born?” (because it suggests that the person you’re asking is “not a true American’); asking a post-doctoral minority student whether he or she is lost in the halls of a chemistry building (because it makes ‘the assumption that the person is trying to break into one of the labs’); and having students fill out forms on which they have to check a box indicating whether they’re male or female.

The school will now ban the phrase, ‘America is the land of opportunity.'”

4) Using the word “wife”: “A document provided to Breitbart News shows the investment banking behemoth JP Morgan Chase has joined a long line of major corporations in putting pressure on employees to sign up for the cause of gay rights. And they have not-so-subtly let each employee know not signing up will be noted.

Employees are being told “to help create an environment for open and honest dialogue.” The document notes descriptors such as “wife” and “boyfriend” are frowned upon, and “partner” is preferred. Not referring to your wife as your wife “offers up the opportunity for more inclusive conversations.”

5) The Word “Man” Being Too Much For Students At Princeton: “The Princeton University HR department has largely wiped the word “man” from its vocabulary.

The relatively new policy in effect at the Ivy League institution spells out the directive in a four-page memo that aims to make the department more gender inclusive.

Instead of using ‘man,’ employees are told to use words such as human beings, individuals or people.

…The memo goes on to list a variety of occupations that typically include the word ‘man’ in them and offers replacements: business person instead of businessman, firefighter instead of fireman, ancestors instead of forefathers, and so on.

…In a statement to The College Fix, John Cramer, Princeton’s director of media relations, said the guidelines ‘reflect the university’s initiative of fostering an inclusive environment.’

While Princeton’s language policy for its Offices of Communications and Human Resources, Princeton’s LGBT Center also offers a guide on various gender pronouns for those who identify as “transgender, genderqueer, and other gender-variant,” suggesting ‘ze, zie and hir,’ ‘they and theirs,’ and ‘Ey, em, eir and emself.’”

6) Applying The Word “Childless” To Women Without Children: “The Sex And The City star, who has been married three times, said she finds the term ‘childless’ offensive.

Miss (Kim) Cattrall, 59, believes that although she is not a biological mother, she is still a parent because of the role she plays in the lives of young actors, actresses and her nieces and nephews.

… The actress told the show how she dislikes the term ‘childless’.

She said: ‘It’s the ‘less’ that is offensive – childless – it sounds like you’re less because you haven’t had a child.”

7) The Name “Lynch”: “Students are demanding that (among other things) [Lebanon Valley College] administrators remove or modify the name of the “Lynch Memorial Hall” — not because the man it was named after was a racist, but because these students cannot handle the word “lynch.” Lynch, of course, is a term that means to put to death (as by hanging) by mob action without legal sanction.

Well, AG Loretta Lynch must give the Orwellian Thoughtcrime nightmares then.🙂

…The hall was named after Clyde A. Lynch, who served as president of the college during the Great Depression and raised more than $500,000 for the physical education building that bears his name.”

Since when did history or truth matter to Liberals!🙂

Check Your Privilege

Appalachian State University students must walk past a “privilege board” denouncing their white, male, able-bodied, Christian, or cisgender privilege any time they enter the Student Union.

The bulletin board is located in Plemmons Student Union (PSU), which the school calls “the centerpiece of the Appalachian campus,” and was apparently put up by a student group last semester, but has been allowed to remain in place to date.

“This makes me wanna go to my safe space!”

 

The bulletin board features fliers from the “Check Your Privilege” campaign started by professors at the University of San Francisco, and features memes with phrases such as “Look at all the privileges I haven’t checked.”

This isn’t the first time the board has shown up, though.

In 2015, Campus Reform reported the existence of a nearly-identical display at Appalachian State this one located in the East Hall dormitory, and reportedly placed there by a resident assistant.

Later that month, another bulletin board surfaced in the Cannon Hall dormitory telling students to check their “Christian privilege,” prompting at least one unknown student to colorfully express their objections with a ball point pen.

Associate Dean of Students Judith Haas confirmed that “the bulletin board is currently on display in the Student Union,” telling Campus Reform that “it was put up at the end of last semester by a student organization,” but declined to elaborate further.

Although the university appears nonplussed by the privilege board, students and others have mocked it mercilessly on social media.

“If you can express your political opinions without being called racist, sexist, bigot, etc. you have Liberal Privilege,” one post states.

“This makes me wanna go to my safe space!” declares another, while a third beseechingly calls for someone to confirm that the privilege board was meant ironically.

The PSU Mission Statement currently states that it is “run by and for students,” and “exists to create a safe and inclusive environment in which the Appalachian community strives to enhance students’ academic achievement and social experience.”

The facility also maintains a web page outlining its advertising policies, which includes specific sections for banners, bulletin boards, marquees, and display cases. Registered student organizations are allowed to post banners and marquees advertising upcoming events for up to one week prior to the event, and may reserve display cases “for event promotions” for up to two weeks.

Similarly, the policy on bulletin boards states that “advertisements must be for public events or membership recruitment functions held on campus, but cannot advertise weekly meetings,” and stipulates that “flyers must be no larger than 11”x17””

Spokespersons for Appalachian State University did not respond to requests for comment from Campus Reform, and Haas declined to offer additional comment or answer any further questions.

Incoming students at Amherst College will attend a mandatory screening of “I’m Not Racist…Am I?”, a film about racism and white privilege, during their new student orientation.

The Amherst orientation schedule says incoming students will attend a two hour event titled, “‘I’m Not Racist … Am I?’ Film and Discussion – MANDATORY”.

“People don’t do what you’re doing in here, which is why we freaking have so much racism.”   

The film “I’m Not Racist…Am I?” is a 2014 documentary that follows twelve New York City teens of varying races over the course of a year. Throughout the year, the teens participate in five workshops about racism, including playing a board game called “The American Dream,” making a song about racism, and discussing the “N-word.”

While the film website says the teens were aware that racism existed before the start of the project, they had to “push through naiveté, guilt and some tears” in order to reach a more “significant definition of racism.”

A counselor in a workshop claims to the teens, “People don’t do what you’re doing in here, which is why we freaking have so much racism.”

Emma Vallo, one of the teens featured in the film, talked to the Wall Street Journal about her experiences attending the workshops. At first, she said, she was put-off by an assertion by a workshop facilitator that all whites are racist because they benefit from an “institutionalized racist system.”

However, Vallo “ultimately came to agree with that position, prompting difficult conversations with her two adoptive dads.”

Another teen in the film says during a group discussion that, “you learn not to mess with the white people…that’s just how it is.”

Viewers will also question their ideas of race and privilege, says the film’s website.

“By the end of their time together, we’ll realize the hard work has only just begun, and these courageous teens won’t be the only ones asking, ‘I’m Not Racist… Am I?’”

Campus Reform reached out to Amherst College for comment but did not receive response by press time.

Dear Liberals,

How does your political bent threaten my and my sons personal liberty, you ask?  In your irrational attempt to classify things such as clothing, shelter, health care, employment, and income as basic human rights, you are placing a demand upon my time, my treasure, and my talents.  If you believe that you have a right to health care, and you are successful in persuading enough shallow thinkers to think as you do, then it will place a demand upon me to provide it to you.  If you believe that you have a right to a job, and more than half of America agrees with you, as a business owner, I am obligated to provide one to you, even if it means making my business less profitable.

When you demand $15 a hour and my labor cost double 1 of two things will happen, neither of them good. I will raise my prices, risking losing business or I will lay you off because I can’t afford your “entitled” ass.

The fact is, you can rail against my conservatism all you wish.  You can make fun of my Tea Party gatherings, and you can ridicule patriots in tri-corner hats until you wet yourself from mirth, but one thing is for certain: my political philosophy will NEVER be a threat to your freedom.

But you can’t say the say, can you. Your philosophy is all about obedience is pleasure and freedom is slavery.

 If you feel a burning responsibility to the poor, conservatism will never prevent you from working 80 hours per week and donating all of your income to charity.  If you feel a strong sense of pity for a family who cannot afford health insurance, my political philosophy will never prevent you from purchasing health insurance for this family or raising money to do so, if you cannot afford it, personally.  If you are moved with compassion for a family who is homeless, a conservative will never use the police power of government to prevent you from taking that family in to your own home or mobilizing your community to build one for them.

However, you cannot say the same for liberalism.  If I choose not to give to the poor for whatever reason, you won’t simply try to persuade me on the merits of the idea – you will seek to use the government as an instrument of plunder to force me to give to the poor.

And call me all kinds of childish name and wage a War on “rich” people. Meanwhile, you’ll vote for the most corrupt rich person you can find that is a Democrat.

 If we are walking down the street together and we spot a homeless person, using this logic, you would not simply be content with giving him $20 from your own pocket – you would hold a gun to my head and force me to give him $20, as well.

But we all know that Liberals are immune to actual logic. They “feel” everything. They are subjective, narcissistic and like a child want what they want, when they want it…

Everything that modern liberalism accomplishes is accomplished at the barrel of a government rifle.

So you bully everyone and then lecture them on the evils of bullying.🙂

 You do not trust in the generosity of the American people to provide, through private charity, things such as clothing, food, shelter, and health care, so you empower the government to take from them and spend the money on wasteful, inefficient, and inadequate government entitlement programs.

You think everyone is too greedy. But who the more greedy…

“I have never understood why it is greed to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.” — Thomas Sowell

You are greedy with everyone elses money. Then you want to keep your own. Now THAT’s Greedy.

 You do not trust in the personal responsibility of the average American to wield firearms in defense of themselves and their families, so you seek to empower the government to criminalize the use and possession of firearms by private citizens.  Everytime you empower the government, you lose more of your personal liberty – it’s an axiomatic truth.

And you lie about it to start another War. After all, War, is Peace, right?🙂

What angers me the most about you is the eagerness with which you allow the incremental enslavement to occur.  You are the cliched and proverbial frog in the pot who has actually convinced himself that he’s discovered a big, silver jacuzzi.

And we must all be forced to jump in.

 Somehow, you’re naive enough to believe that one more degree of heat won’t really matter that much.

What difference does it make?🙂

I have the utmost respect for a slave who is continuously seeking a path to freedom.  What I cannot stomach is a free man who is continuous seeking a path to servitude by willingly trading his freedom for the false sense of security that government will provide.

I am reminded of Samuel Adams’ impassioned speech where he stated:

“If ye love wealth (or security) better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”

Servitude can exist in a free society, but freedom cannot exist in a slave nation.

Freedom is Slavery.🙂

 In a free country, you have the liberty to join with others of your political ilk and realize whatever collectivist ideals you can dream up.  You can start your own little commune where the sign at the front gate says, “From each according to his ability; to each according to his need”, and everyone can work for the mutual benefit of everyone else.  In my society, you have the freedom to do that.

In your society, I don’t have the same freedom.  If your collectivism offends me, I am not free to start my own free society within its borders.  In order for collectivism to work, everyone must be on board, even those who oppose it – why do you think there was a Berlin Wall?

In conclusion, just know that the harder you push to enact your agenda, the more hostile I will become – the harder I will fight you.  It’s nothing personal, necessarily.  If you want to become a slave to an all-powerful central government, be my guest.  But if you are planning to take me and my family down with you, as we say down here in the South, I will stomp a mud-hole in your chest and walk it dry.

Bring it. (Jeremy Chaote)
