Posted on my Facebook Page yesterday.
Those who haven’t unfriended me or banned my status updates…Beware. I’m about to “trigger” some political incorrectness.
I have been going to Orlando since I was old enough to get on a plane. Approximately 47 years. It’s like a second home to me.
My maternal Grandparents (the only ones I ever knew were from Orlando. My parents lived there from 1985-2015.
The events over the weekend really hurt me.
But what hurt me even more (though it was utterly and completely predictable) was the near instant politicizing of it. By Everyone!
These who want to tear us apart. But they don’t need to. We already have done it. TO OURSELVES.
Everything is now Political. EVERYTHING.
Nothing is done anymore that isn’t for Political advantage.
And it only matters whose politics is winning the day. The consequences are not worth considering as long as we have our Sanctimony intact and we “win”.
When was empathy replaced with Political Sanctimony and Narcissism.
The Left wants to ban Guns. Shooter kills people with guns. So immediately the Narrative is about Guns. Not the Shooter.
They want to ban “hate speech” (which is any speech that doesn’t agree with them conveniently).
The Government should run our lives from before we are conceived until after we are long dead. After all, that is the path to Freedom.
Freedom is Slavery.
The Activist Right is about Muslims. (They do want to kill us you, know- that is an unpleasant truth). But not all of them.
But you can’t fight an enemy unless you can name them and our Political Leaders and the Political Activists refuse to do so.
If Churchill or Roosevelt had refused to name the Nazis by name as the threat would WWII have gone the way it did? After all, it wasn’t the German people themselves who elected their Leaders, right? 🙂
Just like “The Christian Right” is not to blame for the attack because they don’t kiss up to Gay Rights Activists.
But attacking a church full of Christians wouldn’t have been as “divisive”. Or Disney World. So you go for the easiest target.
After all, Christians are being killed all over the world in record numbers and no one bats an eye about that. Not on the Agenda. Not the correct Narrative. So lets all just ignore it.
They deserve it, after all. That’s “Tolerance” and “Diversity” at work.
Like Benghazi. People are Dead!
But Politics is more important.
The Power to make you do what I WANT. WHAT makes me feel good about myself. What gives me Even MORE power. Screw you.
“Hypocrisy is one of the most overused words in the English language. Most people think it refers to any failure to act in accordance with one’s expressed beliefs. But that’s simply inaccurate. Failure to live up to one’s beliefs is called being a human. Being a hypocrite is when a person behaves in ways that are inconsistent with his expressed beliefs because he doesn’t actually believe the things he is saying. At the core of true hypocrisy there usually lies one motive: Power…the bias Language <Thought> Police teach them that they have the right to negate speech by simply pretending to be offended or upset when that speech contains ideas they lack the intellectual fortitude to rebut. This does more than just create intellectual atrophy. It also creates pseudo-intellectual arrogance.” –Mike Adams
And that arrogance says that my “rights” are more equal than yours.
It’s your “safe space”.
After all, I’m white I have “privilege” (so I’m told). I am a rac*st because I want to secure the borders against people who would do us both economic, social, and physical harm (and they aren’t all Mexicans).
And if a Black wants to kill me and I defend myself it’s obviously my fault because I’m white.
In California: “Anything below $950 (Theft) keeps the crime a misdemeanor — and likely means the thieves face no pursuit and no punishment, say retailers and law enforcement officials. Large retailers including Safeway, Target, Rite Aid and CVS pharmacies say shoplifting increased at least 15 percent, and in some cases, doubled since voters approved Proposition 47 and ended the possibility of charging shoplifting as a felony with the potential for a prison sentence.
“We’ve heard of cases where they’re going into stores with a calculator so they can make sure that what they steal is worth less than $950,” said Robin Shakely, Sacramento County assistant chief deputy district attorney.”–Press Democrat
But once again the Golden State proves to be pure gold for car thieves in the latest “Hot Spots” report issued by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), placing no fewer than eight out of the top 10 metro areas for vehicle thefts in the U.S. on a per-capita basis. -Forbes
“They’ll pick the $800 unit and just grab it and run out the door.”
For his part, Lutz, the hobby shop owner, has provided police with surveillance videos, and even the license plate, make and model of the getaway vehicles.
“They go, `Perry, our hands are tied because it’s a misdemeanor,”‘ Lutz said. “It’s not worth pursuing, it’s just a waste of manpower.”
Let’s just call it “redistribution” or their “right” because if we called it anything else I bet I’d be a racist. 🙂
I am a “bigot” because I think the Rainbow Shirts have carried their arrogance too far and think that because they were oppressed it’s now feels good to oppress the oppressors. How does that make you any better? (The Rainbow Shirts- so named by me because they act like the The Brown Shirts of old (Google them) with fear, intimidation, and government threats. Plus, they get help from the weak-kneaded ,wanna-be-seen-to-be Politically Correct enablers).
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”- George Orwell.
After all,ALL Christians are Bigots,right? They just want to oppress Gay People. It’s what they live for, so lets oppress them back.
That will make everything better.
Sorry, No. And I’m not even a Christian. But being White (strike one), Conservative (Strike two) and Male (Strike three) makes me very close to the Anti-Christ doesn’t it? 🙂
Trying to destroy good people who happen to be Christian just because they won’t kiss your political agenda or because they “offend you” is not a reason.
Nor is oppressing Gay people because of your religion. But since Christians are not the one killing gay people by thousands and have laws codified in Law against them, have you picked the easiest target, the most political target, instead of the real one??
But I can’t say who, I would “Islamophobic” if I did. 🙂
But Oppressing Christians BECAUSE of their religion is better?
Are you that must more mighty for destroying people’s lives??
Is that the “compassion” and “sensitivity” and “tolerance” that you preach.
Did the orgy of Confederate bans make you feel good?
Or is that just a power play on your part??
Do you get a kick out of it??
Never Let a Crisis Go To Waste!! 🙂
Make everyone else pay so that we can feel powerful.For your personal Agenda to matter more than anything else on Earth. To force people to bend to our will whether they like it or not!
Whether it’s right or not.
Is hurting people that much mightier if you are Sanctimonious in your “rights”.
The Truth doesn’t matter anymore.
“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” – Yoda.
“Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right.
This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — “No, YOU move.” — Capt. America
But that just makes me a racist,bigoted, cisgendered, intolerant, insensitive, evil bastard doesn’t it?
Fascinating how that worked out. 🙂
