Whiteness Protection

Mike Adams:

As a criminology professor, I spend a lot of time counseling students who are getting abused in the classroom. In fact, any white male that decides to become a police officer can expect to be attacked viciously by Marxists trying to “transform” the criminal justice system indirectly through classroom indoctrination. These people aren’t criminal justice professionals. They aren’t even teachers. They are tenured bigots invading an institution they wish to destroy. They are sort of like the atheists who enter seminary just to undermine religion.

To make matters worse, the typical criminal justice department also requires students to take several sociology classes. In these classes, tenured white feminists routinely preach about white privilege while directing virtually all of their vitriol towards white males. Ironically, the lectures of many of these unhappy women are fueled by five-dollar white mochas. I like to call them Starbuck Stalinists.

Fortunately, because I spend a lot of time thinking about these matters, I have come up with a solution to protect white male students from the academic lynch mob that earns a living marginalizing them in the name of diversity and inclusion. I call it the whiteness protection program. Its potential for success depends upon the long-term viability of two recent trends in higher education.

The first of those trends is the movement towards online education. Now, a future police officer can get a degree without ever setting foot on a brick and mortar campus. That way, when he enrolls in class, the professor doesn’t know his race, gender, or sexual orientation. He can start to weigh into the online discussion forums with a near-complete demographic presumption of innocence.

Of course, it won’t take long for the professor to inject a controversial topic like the Black Lives Matter movement into the online class discussion. As soon as a student makes a pro police officer remark, the professor will assume certain demographics. For example, a student named Eric Jones will be assumed to be male, which is a safe assumption. But Eric will also be assumed to be straight and white, which is a less safe assumption. So the professor might decide to try to verify Eric’s demographics.

This is where the second trend, gender identity politics, comes in handy. Because gender is no longer a binary concept based upon biology, Eric can now claim that he is a woman when he signs up for his online degree program. He can even demand that his professors use the pronouns she, her, and hers without going through hormonal treatment or surgical genital alteration. I would urge a conservative white male like Eric to just go all the way and demand that his professors call him Erica for safe measure.

By becoming a white female, Erica has taken a load off his mind. But he needs to insulate himself from the attacks on his white privilege by taking care of the white part of his identity. And that is actually very simple. He can just mark the box for “African American” on his college application. If challenged, Erica can claim racial discrimination. Clearly, the claim that someone can change genders but not race is indefensible. It puts gender identity politics in the forefront of the diversity movement while sending racial identity politics to the back of the bus. And that’s clearly racist!

(Author’s Note: There is no question about sexual orientation on the college application. However, it goes without saying that if Eric is still attracted to women when he becomes Erica, he can claim lesbian status and check off a third victim category).

The only remaining hitch is the prospect of having to take a picture for a student ID upon enrolling at the university. If that happens, students should just refuse to take the picture. If the university insists on a photo, a lawsuit is in order. Facial profiling and the ideology of facial supremacy upon which it is based simply have to be eradicated. All progressives should be on board with this. Abolishing photo IDs is the key to their future electoral success. If an illegal alien can vote without one, why can’t a white guy enroll in college without one?

So there you have it, white male conservatives. To recapitulate, the key to escaping from classroom oppression involves just four easy steps:

1. Enroll in an online degree program using your temporary black lesbian identity. This will make you a BLUG, which is even more chic than being a LUG (lesbian until graduation).

2. Decline the request to submit to the facially discriminatory photo ID requirement. Or hire someone as a stand-in for the picture. It’s not identity theft if you consent.

3. Inform your professors of your preferred pronouns and new name. If you really want to have fun, demand to be called “her majesty.”

4. Reclaim your former straight white male identity after you graduate. Of course, this is optional if you decide to take a job somewhere in California.

Perhaps the best part of my whiteness protection program is its temporary nature. One can simply leave the program at any time. Unlike the real mob, the academic mob will never come looking for you after you leave campus. Your Marxist professor derives power from tenure, which no one recognizes as valid in the real world.

It may sound controversial but everyone wins under my new policy. The straight white male will get an education free of retaliation for his so-called white privilege. Finally, the traditional classroom will become a safe space for the sharing of grievances by minorities, feminists, and alphabetically marginalized Americans.

Not in My Class

Undoing the Dis-Education of Millennials

I teach in a law school. For several years now my students have been mostly Millennials. Contrary to stereotype, I have found that the vast majority of them want to learn. But true to stereotype, I increasingly find that most of them cannot think, don’t know very much, and are enslaved to their appetites and feelings. Their minds are held hostage in a prison fashioned by elite culture and their undergraduate professors.

They cannot learn until their minds are freed from that prison. This year in my Foundations of Law course for first-year law students, I found my students especially impervious to the ancient wisdom of foundational texts, such as Plato’s Crito and the Code of Hammurabi. Many of them were quick to dismiss unfamiliar ideas as “classist” and “racist,” and thus unable to engage with those ideas on the merits. So, a couple of weeks into the semester, I decided to lay down some ground rules. I gave them these rules just before beginning our annual unit on legal reasoning.

Here is the speech I gave them.

********************************

Before I can teach you how to reason, I must first teach you how to rid yourself of unreason. For many of you have not yet been educated. You have been dis-educated. To put it bluntly, you have been indoctrinated. Before you learn how to think you must first learn how to stop unthinking.

Reasoning requires you to understand truth claims, even truth claims that you think are false or bad or just icky. Most of you have been taught to label things with various “isms” which prevent you from understanding claims you find uncomfortable or difficult.

Reasoning requires correct judgment. Judgment involves making distinctions, discriminating. Most of you have been taught how to avoid critical, evaluative judgments by appealing to simplistic terms such as “diversity” and “equality.”

Reasoning requires you to understand the difference between true and false. And reasoning requires coherence and logic. Most of you have been taught to embrace incoherence and illogic. You have learned to associate truth with your subjective feelings, which are neither true nor false but only yours, and which are constantly changeful.

We will have to pull out all of the weeds in your mind as we come across them. Unfortunately, your mind is full of weeds, and this will be a very painful experience. But it is strictly necessary if anything useful, good, and fruitful is to be planted in your head.

There is no formula for this. Each of you has different weeds, and so we will need to take this on the case-by-case basis. But there are a few weeds that infect nearly all of your brains. So I am going to pull them out now.

First, except when describing an ideology, you are not to use a word that ends in “ism.” Communism, socialism, Nazism, and capitalism are established concepts in history and the social sciences, and those terms can often be used fruitfully to gain knowledge and promote understanding. “Classism,” “sexism,” “materialism,” “cisgenderism,” and (yes) even racism are generally not used as meaningful or productive terms, at least as you have been taught to use them. Most of the time, they do not promote understanding.

In fact, “isms” prevent you from learning. You have been taught to slap an “ism” on things that you do not understand, or that make you feel uncomfortable, or that make you uncomfortable because you do not understand them. But slapping a label on the box without first opening the box and examining its contents is a form of cheating. Worse, it prevents you from discovering the treasures hidden inside the box. For example, when we discussed the Code of Hammurabi, some of you wanted to slap labels on what you read which enabled you to convince yourself that you had nothing to learn from ancient Babylonians. But when we peeled off the labels and looked carefully inside the box, we discovered several surprising truths. In fact, we discovered that Hammurabi still has a lot to teach us today.

One of the falsehoods that has been stuffed into your brain and pounded into place is that moral knowledge progresses inevitably, such that later generations are morally and intellectually superior to earlier generations, and that the older the source the more morally suspect that source is. There is a term for that. It is called chronological snobbery. Or, to use a term that you might understand more easily, “ageism.”

Second, you have been taught to resort to two moral values above all others, diversity and equality. These are important values if properly understood. But the way most of you have been taught to understand them makes you irrational, unreasoning. For you have been taught that we must have as much diversity as possible and that equality means that everyone must be made equal. But equal simply means the same. To say that 2+2 equals 4 is to say that 2+2 is numerically the same as four. And diversity simply means difference. So when you say that we should have diversity and equality you are saying we should have difference and sameness. That is incoherent, by itself. Two things cannot be different and the same at the same time in the same way.

Furthermore, diversity and equality are not the most important values. In fact, neither diversity nor equality is valuable at all in its own right. Some diversity is bad. For example, if slavery is inherently wrong, as I suspect we all think it is, then a diversity of views about the morality of slavery is worse than complete agreement that slavery is wrong.

Similarly, equality is not to be desired for its own sake. Nobody is equal in all respects. We are all different, which is to say that we are all not the same, which is to say that we are unequal in many ways. And that is generally a good thing. But it is not always a good thing (see the previous remarks about diversity).

Related to this:  You do you not know what the word “fair” means. It does not just mean equality. Nor does it mean something you do not like. For now, you will have to take my word for this. But we will examine fairness from time to time throughout this semester.

Third, you should not bother to tell us how you feel about a topic. Tell us what you think about it. If you can’t think yet, that’s O.K.. Tell us what Aristotle thinks, or Hammurabi thinks, or H.L.A. Hart thinks. Borrow opinions from those whose opinions are worth considering. As Aristotle teaches us in the reading for today, men and women who are enslaved to the passions, who never rise above their animal natures by practicing the virtues, do not have worthwhile opinions. Only the person who exercises practical reason and attains practical wisdom knows how first to live his life, then to order his household, and finally, when he is sufficiently wise and mature, to venture opinions on how to bring order to the political community.

One of my goals for you this semester is that each of you will encounter at least one idea that you find disagreeable and that you will achieve genuine disagreement with that idea. I need to explain what I mean by that because many of you have never been taught how to disagree.

Disagreement is not expressing one’s disapproval of something or expressing that something makes you feel bad or icky. To really disagree with someone’s idea or opinion, you must first understand that idea or opinion. When Socrates tells you that a good life is better than a life in exile you can neither agree nor disagree with that claim without first understanding what he means by “good life” and why he thinks running away from Athens would be unjust. Similarly, if someone expresses a view about abortion, and you do not first take the time to understand what the view is and why the person thinks the view is true, then you cannot disagree with the view, much less reason with that person. You might take offense. You might feel bad that someone holds that view. But you are not reasoning unless you are engaging the merits of the argument, just as Socrates engaged with Crito’s argument that he should flee from Athens.

So, here are three ground rules for the rest of the semester.

 

1.  The only “ism” I ever want to come out your mouth is a syllogism. If I catch you using an “ism” or its analogous “ist” — racist, classist, etc. — then you will not be permitted to continue speaking until you have first identified which “ism” you are guilty of at that very moment. You are not allowed to fault others for being biased or privileged until you have first identified and examined your own biases and privileges.

2.  If I catch you this semester using the words “fair,” “diversity,” or “equality,” or a variation on those terms, and you do not stop immediately to explain what you mean, you will lose your privilege to express any further opinions in class until you first demonstrate that you understand three things about the view that you are criticizing.

3.  If you ever begin a statement with the words “I feel,” before continuing you must cluck like a chicken or make some other suitable animal sound.

********************************

To their credit, the students received the speech well. And so far this semester, only two students have been required to cluck like chickens.

Bad Marx For America

Dear Millennials: Your Love of Socialism Could be America’s Downfall…

millennialssocialism

Dear young adults in figurative diapers,

Being an adult can be a major drag. We have to get jobs. Pay bills. Pay taxes. Make our own appointments. Go to bed early so we can get up early and shuffle on to work the next morning so we can pay for all the stuff we need to continue working. Also the refrigerator doesn’t magically fill itself. Someone should tell Whirlpool about that. Have you noticed that in order for food to be prepared… you have to prepare it? Ridiculous. I’m calling my mom.

Adulthood isn’t what we thought it would be. No, the economy these past several years hasn’t exactly been stellar, either. Okay? Okay.

My fellow millennials, for sure we have our challenges. Many of you were raised in broken homes. Many of you were exposed to divorce. It’s possible a lot of you didn’t live with your father or may not have known him at all. Combine home life with the rise of political correctness in school, taking its dangerous form of “self-esteem above all,” and no wonder you think life is unfair but you should have it all.

Look, I’m sorry life screwed you over in the early years. I’m sorry if you were shuffled to daycare day in and day out. I’m sorry if you don’t have memories of playing with your parents. But most of all, I’m sorry you were not instilled with the grand idea of personal responsibility. I’m sorry you were not empowered with the notion that YOU are the commander of your own life. If you take nothing else from this post, believe that no matter who you are, you can succeed. Without government.

Because guess what, my friends? Your abject loyalty to socialism is going to tank our country. Your insistence on getting what you want and making other people pay for it, all under the guise of “fairness,” will lead to ruin. For everyone. Including you.

You were likely taught in school of the virtues of socialism. How a government looking after its people via taking over businesses would promote equality. To each according to his need. Sharing, you were told, is caring. Awww! It’s a better world where everyone has the same things. It’s a better world when we’re all equal! No one is rich, no one is poor. Utopia.

“Many men of course became extremely rich, but this was perfectly natural and nothing to be ashamed of because no one was really poor – at least no one worth speaking of.”― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Well, the education system kind of screwed fooled you. They told some white lies here and there. Why shouldn’t they? A public school is just a state school. A government school. Why wouldn’t those schools promote the same system which would ensure they continue on regardless of their quality? Regardless of the outcome? Follow the money. Public schools are funded by governments. It doesn’t seem to matter how poorly performing a school is, does it? Why is that? Because it doesn’t matter. FAIRNESS. EQUALITY. SCHOOL IS A RIGHT. HEATHER HAS TWO MOMMIES, YOU BIGOT!

The truth about socialism is much different. While you may think the tenets are lofty, fair, reasonable, and give you the feels, the reality is darker (read WW2 Survivor’s Account Draws Chilling Similarities between Nazism and Liberalism…). See, socialism removes human ambition from the equation. Actually it does more than that. Socialism punishes human ambition. Those who strive to be their best, to do their best, only highlight the masses of humans who do not strive. Who fail. And that’s just. Not. Fair. It’s not fair for a few people to succeed while others don’t.

Voila, socialism. The idea that people who suck at life get to take from people who don’t suck at life, because it’s not fair that a few people who are either brilliant, hard-working, both brilliant and hardworking, should succeed more than people who are not brilliant or hard-working. BOO! Socialism promotes human mediocrity.

Question for you: Who are these angels in government who are going to make things fair? After you’ve answered that question, answer me this: why do you put more trust in these elected strangers, who address you while reading from a teleprompter, with YOUR LIFE than you trust your own self? Read Dear Liberals: Your Cult-like Faith in Government is Disturbing… Why do you put so much faith in Bernie Sanders’s plan to save you than you trust yourself to save you? Reminder, it took Bernie Sanders 40 years to earn a paycheck.

Why do you want to change the economy because you just cannot hack it?

Socialism is for losers. Socialism is for bums (see WATCH: Debunking the Myth of ‘Democratic’ Socialism). Socialism is for people who think life is unfair and therefore everyone else, who does work, must take care of you. Or even if you are taking care of yourself, you still think everyone else should help those losers who can’t care for themselves. Seeing a theme here? Socialism is for people who see the worst in others. Socialism assumes humans are weak. Pathetic. Read Dear ‘Men’ Who Vote Bernie Sanders: You’re Not Men at All…

America was founded on the idea that human beings should be free to live their own lives. To be masters of their own destiny. That, by the way, is the definition of American Exceptionalism. People, not government, should be in charge of their own lives. They should be free. Free to succeed. Free to fail.

Which is why the blind embrace of socialism would systematically unwind what America is. Why? Because a lot of you just plain suck. Sorry for the tough love, but come on.

Interestingly, and I’m not using that word sarcastically, when you socialist millennials decide to pull on your big boy and big girl pants, go out into the world and fight for yourself, you leave socialism behind. After learning you can take care of yourself, it just requires a crap ton of work and less whining, your imaginary friend socialism loses its appeal.

From The Washington Post:

The expanded social welfare state Sanders thinks the United States should adopt requires everyday people to pay considerably more in taxes. Yet millennials become averse to social welfare spending if they foot the bill. As they reach the threshold of earning $40,000 to $60,000 a year, the majority of millennials come to oppose income redistribution, including raising taxes to increase financial assistance to the poor.

Lemme translate that for you: you’re totally cool with socialism…until you’re the one paying for it. (Crowder)

Granted

“Out of every hundred new ideas ninety-nine or more will probably be inferior to the traditional responses which they propose to replace. No one man, however brilliant or well-informed, can come in one lifetime to such fullness of understanding as to safely judge and dismiss the customs or institutions of his society, for those are the wisdom of generations after centuries of experiment in the laboratory of history.”Will and Ariel Durant

“We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.”C.S. Lewis

Too many Americans have become like the spoiled trust fund kids running the family business. Grandpa built it and knew it top to bottom. Dad learned from him and kept it going. Now they’re taking over and unfortunately, they never really bothered to learn the ins and outs of how the company works. They just look at it as a place where they can have a fancy title and get money to finance their lifestyle.

Many Americans don’t know why this country is so successful, don’t understand the long-term ramifications of the things they advocate politically and don’t get how lucky we are.

Knowledgeable conservatives know better. We know that we are fortunate enough to live in what Reagan called a “shining city on a hill” and that eternal flame that sets us apart from other nations can easily dim. Americans should consider that many of the things they take for granted are not necessarily so.

You see, far too many of us take it for granted that….

1) ….We can not only refuse to teach patriotism to our kids, but teach our kids in schools that our country is a horrible place and it won’t produce people who are disloyal to our nation.

2)….Black and Hispanic Americans can be incessantly encouraged to create and nurture racial grudges, white people can constantly be put down, degraded and discriminated against via programs like Affirmative Action, but Caucasians won’t increasingly adopt the same racist attitudes liberals encourage minorities to hold.

3) …We can accuse a man of rape if the woman he has sex with has been drinking, weirdly demand verbal consent for every stage of a make-out session and accuse a man of sexual harassment if a woman claims he grabbed her butt 30 years ago, but it won’t have any ramifications for male/female relationships.

4)….We can hamstring our military with ridiculous rules of engagement, have soldiers on the battlefield call lawyers before they can shoot targets and have politicians make military decisions based on how it will play in the press; yet our troops will still win wars.

5)…We can smear the Christian church at every opportunity, tar every decent person as a secret hypocrite and write morality off as old timey, but the people in our country will continue to be good over the long haul.

6)…. Social Security and Medicare will always be available for the enormous number of Americans that depend on it even though we have no money set aside for either program and we have an unsustainable debt that we are adding to every year.

7) ….We can ignore lawbreaking by illegal aliens while playing political games with our justice system based on whether a Republican or Democrat is being targeted without ordinary Americans losing respect for the rule of law.

8) ….We can put men with poor character in office; yet they’ll still do the right thing for the country, instead of themselves, when they’re elected.

9) ….We can run up an astronomical debt that we never intend to fully pay off, large parts of which are held by nations hostile to us, but they will never choose to crash our economy by refusing to lend us more money that we may not pay back one day.

10) ….We can shut down speakers we disagree with on college campuses; the police can charge exorbitant fees to allow someone to publicly exercise his 2nd Amendment rights and social media giants can quiet anyone they want without consequence, but the rest of us will continue to have our right to free speech honored.

11) …We can trash the police at every opportunity and give the benefit of the doubt to the criminals they arrest instead of to them, while they’ll still be willing and able to effectively do their jobs.

12) …We can abandon the pure capitalism that made our country so rich, pile regulation on top of regulation and exorbitantly tax the most productive members of society without it slowing down the economic growth, jobs and opportunity for everyone.

13) ….We can coddle our best and brightest college students so much that they get “triggered” by hearing things they don’t like, expose them to professors that are Communists, bombers and radicals and then expect them to be tough, competent and capable enough to keep the country running one day.

14) …We can bring in enormous numbers of immigrants from non-Western, socialistic and often backward countries, immerse them in a culture that strongly discourages assimilation and they, or at least their kids will fare as well as anyone here.

15) …We have clean water, decent roads, full supermarkets, Internet access, non-corrupt cops, shoes, free speech and a hospital that will fix a broken leg whether you have money to pay or not. Compared to the MAJORITY of people on Earth, Americans live in a utopia. Yet, all we ever hear are complaints and endless kvetching about how horrible it is to live in such a rich, powerful country that has done so much for the world. Part of that is human nature. It’s easy to focus on what you lack instead of what you have…until you don’t have it any more.

More Americans need to start thinking about preserving this nation for our children. Of all the terrible things we could do as a people, the worst would be to squander the incredible opportunity we’ve had and to leave future generations of Americans with nothing but a shallow husk of what this country is today.

Manson

With the news that Charles Manson died, I wondered if big media would spin the story to mean something other than the death of a mass murderer.

As it turns out, according to the shameless partisan opportunists at Newsweek, Manson and Trump have supposedly had similar ways of gaining supporters. 

In a story, Melissa Matthews cites psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, former president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, who claims that part of Manson’s power lay in the way he talks. Specifically, “Manson was able to speak in a way that engaged those who felt marginalized or alienated.”

So, charismatic leaders have the ability to gain followers. In other news, the sun is hot.

Smaller is clear that he does not believe President Donald Trump is similar to the convicted killer, or that their followers have any shared beliefs or characteristics, but he did say we can look to the current president to see how language is used to form a bond with followers.

“A charismatic leader knows how to speak to people in a way that will emotionally engage those people,” Smaller told Newsweek. “Our current president speaks in an emotional or affective way to large numbers of people in our country who feel a kind of alienation or disconnection from the government,” he said. Manson family followers are so attracted to feelings of acceptance and understanding that they accept their leaders’ ideologies regardless of how destructive or dangerous they may be.

“It’s not even the content of what that charismatic leader says,” he said. “He or she is able to do it in an emotional way.”

Right. “Make America Great Again” has the same alluring ring to it as “Maybe I should have killed 4-500 hundred people. Then I would have felt better.”

Charisma plays a role in any leaders ability to recruit followers, and both men used it effectively. But Trump is no charmer. He is blunt and often speaks off the cuff. Barack Obama, though, was an effective manipulator and used charm to gain most of his followers. (Media Equalizer)

Friday

Is “Black Friday” racist? 🙂

Reason #47,321 to be glad you’re not a liberal: You get to enjoy your holiday and allow those around you to enjoy theirs. Not so for our left-wing counterparts, who mostly disdain Thanksgiving – along with Columbus Day, Independence Day, Flag Day, Christmas, Easter, etc. – freighting it with their liberal guilt and contempt for any one or thing that doesn’t reflect their enlightened world-view.

So while you’re eagerly tucking into your turkey and happily plopping potatoes on your plate, spare a thought for those fated to suffer through Thanksgiving though they know that what the Pilgrims wrought is nothing to celebrate.

Pass the bio degradable tissues and prepare to have your consciousness raised (yes, it’s as painful as it sounds). Here are five reasons liberals hate Thanksgiving, and want you to hate it too.

1. Liberals hate Thanksgiving because it is racist. Yes that’s right, Thanksgiving is all about that white supremacy! “It is reserved by history and the intent of ‘the founders’ as the supremely white American holiday, the most ghoulish event on the national calendar.” One glass of white privilege to wash down the white meat please!

2. Liberals hate Thanksgiving because it is sexist. Sure, you can guess that because we often think of women slaving away in the kitchen while the men watch football. But here’s a little food for thought: according to liberal feminists, Thanksgiving is sexist because there just aren’t enough lady balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

3. Liberals hate Thanksgiving because it’s killing the environment. Climate change is the last thing anyone wants to hear on Thanksgiving. Let that conversation burn in the oven with the forgotten dinner rolls.

4. Liberals hate Thanksgiving because it’s anti animal rights. Liberals want you to “carry that weight” of guilt and shame knowing your perfectly moist and seasoned turkey suffered and was murdered on its journey to your dinner table. Instead liberals want you to take a hard stance on animal rights and opt for a nice slice of raw broccoli loaf.

5. Liberals hate Thanksgiving because it’s a holiday for celebrating genocide. Thanksgiving, aka “Europeans’ genocidal campaign against indigenous people to acquire the land base of the United States.” Above all else, Thanksgiving is a time to channel your inner sociopath, according to liberals. Without those Europeans invading an unknown land and conquering all those Native Americans you wouldn’t have a reason to carve a turkey!

If that’s not enough to make you feel unthankful for thanksgiving here are 37 more reasons to hate Thanksgiving, curtesy of buzz kill Buzzfeed.

But if you’re a normal human being, you know that Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to share with family and friends giving thanks for the freedoms and blessings this great nation has to offer. (Newsbusters)

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving you racist, imperialist, oppressive , bigot!  🙂

If you listen to the nattering nabobs of social media negativity, and you shouldn’t, you might get the false impression that our dreams of a conservative future are imploding. You would be wrong. There is a lot for conservatives to be thankful for, and we’re winning. To paraphrase noted tax reform advocate Wesley Snipes in Passenger 57, always bet on red.

No. 1: Be Thankful That Hillary Is Not Our President.

Every day, it is a joy to awaken, unlike Hillary Clinton, without a hangover. Oh yes, and also to awaken knowing that Felonia von Pantsuit is not, and will never be, our president.

Can you imagine if she were? She is as vindictive as she is stupid, which means instead of ripping apart the regulatory state, she and her nanny-gestapo army of obedient aspiring liberal fascists would be sliding their slimy tentacles into every aspect of our lives. Do you think the GOPe would even resist? The weenies in Congress would jump at the chance for WaPo glory by embracing “bipartisanship,” which means giving that corrupt harpy everything she wants in the name of “cooperation” and “reaching across the aisle.” Amnesty, tax hikes, gun grabs, speech bans – it would all be on the table. Freedom, not so much.

But because of Donald Trump, with the support of normal Americans, winning the election against all odds, none of that is happening. Savor our victory. And give thanks for Hillary’s pain.

No. 2: Be Thankful That We Now Know The Truth About So Many “Conservatives.”

Besides defeating the chardonnay-swilling Mayonnaise Chavez, Donald Trump’s other great achievement has been to cause so many prominent Fredocons to show who they really are – and it isn’t “conservative.” It’s remarkable how many peeps we thought were solid revealed themselves to be narcissistic hacks focused only on preserving their pathetic sinecures within Conservative, Inc. Exhibit A is Cruise Director Bill Kristol, who turned out to be much more worried about empty cabins on the sinking S.S. Weekly Standard’s lido deck than actually making conservative change. He flat-out defected to the enemy and was last seen pushing for a Deep State coup. After all, the establishment is gonna establishment.

But stay with me. Not all Never Trumpers are phonies; some actually believe in conservatism and are simply strategically confused. We are in the fighting phase now, and not everyone has the stomach to make the choices you need to make when you are grappling to the death in the Octagon. In the midst of our fighting, we have to sometimes prioritize, and yes – some traditional conservative values and ideals do need to get put on pause. As adults, and as people who have been in fistfights, we get that mindless purity leads to pure defeat.

 

The Captain Stubing of Conservatism exemplifies the loser class of GOP frauds who actually preferred Hillary because Trump’s supporters are so…well, you know, not Harvard material. Oh, and also because a Hillary regime would have been a great opportunity to pretend to lead the conserva-resistance and cash-in with profitable events like chin-stroking panels starring conservative firebrand activists such as Jeff Flake, Ben Sasse, and Chet the Unicorn. Let’s give thanks that the marks caught onto the grift.

No. 3: Be Thankful For Neil Gorsuch.

We are going to take back the judiciary. That’s huge and it’s already happening. When the Never Trumpers try to mock our delight in having President Trump at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue by saying “But Gorsuch!”, our reply must be, “Damn right, but Gorsuch!”

Consider the alternative. Do you have any doubt, any at all, that a Clinton court would discover that the Constitution’s penumbras and emanations mean that our right of free speech, our right to practice our religion, and our right to keep and bear arms, don’t actually exist? Any doubt at all? Well, be thankful that we’ve put that particular nightmare on hold, at least for a while.

 

No. 4: Be Thankful That Conservatives Have A Voice.

Between social media and conservative media that has not gone full liberal – never go full liberal – we have ways to organize and communicate. That was not always so, and they are under attack now, but we at least have them. Fox is strong, and OANN, NewsMax and Rebel Media, to name a few, are out there. Townhall.com delivers two dozen disparate conservative voices every day. Others update you on chem trails and lizard alien overlords, but you know, at least you have options.

The media allows us to bypass enemy gatekeepers; we don’t have to ask anyone’s permission to publish awesome conservative pop culture that infuriates the stinking liberals. Sure, social media outlets like Twitter are getting increasingly hostile to dissenters from the leftist paradigm, but we do have a Republican Congress and many Republican state legislatures that have the ability to regulate them into submission if the California tech tycoons think they can shut us up. If they imagine we’ll just sit back and let them use their political power against us without using ours back, they are nuts. So, be thankful that we can still be heard – and that we have the power to deal with those who would try to silence us.

 

No. 5: Be Thankful We Have Fewer Perverts Than The Liberals.

Yeah, we have problems. Roy Moore selfishly remains in what was once a sure-thing race. But when he (probably) wins, it’ll be because the Gropeocrats tossed him a life preserver in the shape of a coke-addled hack from Minnesota. Those “Senator Jailbait is the face of the GOP!” ads are gonna fall a little flat in 2018 when we haven’t seen resignations from Senator Stuart Smarmy and Senator Hung Jury.

Just be thankful we don’t have the problems liberals have. We conservatives always knew that liberalism was a giant scam designed to allow elitists to take power and exercise it without accountability; the left has now decided to make sure everyone knows it. From Kennedy to Clinton to Franken, from Fatty Arbuckle to Fatty Weinstein, liberal bona fides earned them a lifetime of free gropes…until now. Now liberalism is being exposed as the giant lie it always was.

Yeah, statistically some Republicans are going to be creeps, but that doesn’t define them the way it does liberal icons. What matters is that now everyone sees the truth that liberalism is a lie, and we should be thankful for that.

No. 6: Be Thankful For Dogs.

Because dogs, which are the most conservative of pets, are cool. Especially Bitey.

My Cats don’t care. 🙂

No. 7: Be Thankful That We Have All The Guns.

Yes, we normals feel a certain tranquility knowing that, no matter what happens, at the end of the day, the liberal fascists can’t actually make us do anything we don’t want to do. As Mao noted, “Power grows from the barrel of a gun.” Mao got that right, if nothing else – the fact that the people of the United States retain the right to defend themselves from the kind of leftist oppression we’ve seen in Venezuela and other hellholes liberals swoon over during their short Potemkin village visits means that the only way they get their way is if they convince us to go along with it. They can’t make us do anything, and it gnaws at them.

Nope, Kaden and Ashleigh the baristas are unlikely to gear up and start the hard work of taming us uppity normals. Their only weapon system is whining, and until we see a 62 grain tweet with a lead core and steel penetrator that flies over 900 feet per second, they aren’t imposing anything on us without our consent. Freedom is measured in calibers, and We the People retain our citizens’ veto over their serfdom-focused schemes no matter how much the gang from Team Progressive stamps its collective Birkenstocks.

So be thankful for what we have, and never surrender. We’ll win.
