The Difference

mindset

Via John Hawkins at Townhall:

10) Conservatives believe that individual Americans have a right to defend themselves and their families with guns and that right cannot be taken away by any method short of a Constitutional Amendment, which conservatives would oppose. Liberals believe by taking arms away from law abiding citizens, they can prevent criminals, who aren’t going to abide by gun control laws, from using guns in the commission of crimes.

9) Conservatives believe that we should live in a color blind society where every individual is judged on the content of his character and the merits of his actions. On the other hand, liberals believe that it’s ok to discriminate based on race as long as it primarily benefits minority groups.

8) Conservatives are capitalists and believe that entrepreneurs who amass great wealth through their own efforts are good for the country and shouldn’t be punished for being successful. Liberals are socialists who view successful business owners as people who cheated the system somehow or got lucky. That’s why they don’t respect high achievers and see them as little more than piggy banks for their programs.
7) Conservatives believe that abortion ends the life of an innocent child and since we believe that infanticide is wrong, we oppose abortion. Most liberals, despite what they’ll tell you, believe that abortion ends the life of an innocent child, but they prefer killing the baby to inconveniencing the mother.6) Conservatives believe in confronting and defeating enemies of the United States before they can harm American citizens. Liberals believe in using law enforcement measures to deal with terrorism, which means that they feel we should allow terrorists to train, plan, and actually attempt to kill Americans before we try to arrest them — as if you can just send the police around to pick up a terrorist mastermind hiding in Iran or the wilds of Pakistan.

5) Conservatives, but not necessarily Republicans (which is unfortunate), believe it’s vitally important to the future of the country to reduce the size of government, keep taxes low, balance the budget, and get this country out of debt. Liberals, and Democrats for that matter, believe in big government, high taxes, and they have never met a new spending program they didn’t like, whether we will have to go into debt to pay for it or not.

4) Conservatives believe that government, by its very nature, tends to be inefficient, incompetent, wasteful, and power hungry. That’s why we believe that the government that governs least, governs best. Liberals think that the solution to every problem is another government program. Even when those new programs create new problems, often worse than the ones that were being fixed in the first place, the solution is always….you guessed it, another government program.
3) Conservatives are patriotic, believe that America is a great nation, and are primarily interested in looking out for the good of the country. That’s why we believe in “American exceptionalism” and “America first.” Liberals are internationalists who are more concerned about what Europeans think of us and staying in the good graces of the corrupt bureaucrats who control the UN than looking out for the best interests of this nation.2) Conservatives, most of them anyway, believe in God and think that the Constitution has been twisted by liberal judges to illegitimately try to purge Christianity from the public square. We also believe, most of us anyway, that this country has been successful in large part because it is a good, Christian nation and if our country ever turns away from the Lord, it will cease to prosper. Liberals, most of them anyway, are hostile to Christianity. That’s why, whether you’re talking about a school play at Christmas time, a judge putting the Ten Commandments on the wall of his court, or a store employee saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays,” liberals are dedicated to driving reminders of Christianity from polite society.

1) Conservatives believe in pursuing policies because they’re pragmatic and because they work. Liberals believe in pursuing policies because they’re “nice” and make them feel good. Whether the policies they’re advocating actually work or not is of secondary importance to them.

Veterans Day- “Diversity” Style

Apparently, honoring the military cannot include the most basic of patriotic symbols at a school in the Northwest. Seattle Pacific University, a Christian school, recently ruled that the “Students for Military Veterans Support” club could not present colors or say the pledge of allegiance at their Veterans Day ceremony due to “diversity.”

SPU released this statement:

“The organizers decided not to include the pledge of allegiance and the presentation of colors during the November 10 chapel, given that there are diversity of views on campus whether such elements should be part of a Christian worship service.”

Holding the ceremony in the campus chapel has allegedly caused an uproar amongst an anonymous group of students.
“At SPU there is a lot of diversity and different perspectives of faith,” Martin said, noting that there are some Christian perspectives that embrace pacifism. “They believe that anything associated with war is not something that Christians should be associated with. They wanted to voice their opinion about how that would make them feel uncomfortable in a chapel and that Christians should not be supporting a symbol of the state.” (MYNorthwest)

The PC Minority rules. That’s “diversity”. Ban it. I guess the meaning of the word “diversity” escapes their tiny little Orwellian feed minds.

Yeah, the warmongers might offend some pacifists! Ooooh. now that’s a reason to ban The Pledge of Allegiance that the veterans you allege to honor fought and died for!

Students for Military Veterans Support club member Daniel Fenlason thinks such a ruling is unfair:

“We should be able to pledge allegiance to the flag inside of our own church, in our own house of worship [for] the same people who died for that same right.” (MRC)

I guess they wanted an “Allah Ackbar” too, for diversity? 🙂

Commentor LeadRunner: Ok, folks, I am a vet, and I have always played by the rules, but this is enough. This is not what I served for. This is pure and utter bull sh!t and needs to come to an immediate halt. If what this country stands for is so offensive to these people, then they should just get out. Eventually, the real Americans are going to reach their limit and it will get very ugly, but we will return to some semblance of reality.

At the rate we’re going, it will be a crime one day soon to offend someone.

Isn’t already effective true. This was apparently self-censorship because of the massive PC environment that Big Brother Liberals had going as it is.

A Long Island mall puts Santa in a spaceship & removes a Christmas tree so as not to offend. Yale students are offended by Halloween costumes and demand the University provide them a “safe space.” The Univ. of Mizzou football team won’t play because they’re offended by something someone said on campus, and another university won’t allow someone who fought ISIS to speak on campus because pro ISIS students might be offended. (Walshfreedom)

BUT

The “Diversity Police” caved when pressured, which is what you have to do to the PC Police. You can’t give in.

95ksj.com: Local radio host Dori Monson publicly supported the club’s position on her show. “I am sick and tired of how all of society has to … cater to the vocal minority of the easily offended,” Dori said. “If they don’t like the flag and the pledge being part of this chapel — don’t attend the chapel. Don’t attend the ceremony. To deny everybody else, that is the tyranny of the minority imposing their will.”

Within hours of those comments the university changed course. “We regret that our initial decision about our Veterans Day service caused so much misunderstanding.

MISUNDERSTANDING!

MISUNDERSTANDING!

MY F*CKING ASS!

THERE WAS NO “MISUNDERSTANDING” about your PC “Diversity Police”. None whatsoever.

It was never our intent to dishonor our veterans or their service to our country,” the university said in a statement.”

Yeah, you just wanted to be Politically Correct, which is sickening enough as it is!!

Offending people is exactly what needs to be protected, not banned, you idiots!

The very essence of freedom is the freedom to offend people.

The freedom is what these veterans fought and died for you, you morons!

The Orwellian “Diversity Police” make me sick!

A Giant Leap Backwards for Mankind

Touchdown: Atlantis lands at Kennedy Space Center one minute behind schedule at 5.57am (10.57am BST) today, bringing to an end Nasa's 30-year shuttle programme
The End of the US Space program.
The End of Our Reach exceeding our grasp.
The End of the Dream.
After all, giving Space over to the Russians, The Chinese and India is a vastly better idea.
Mankind just took a giant leap backwards.
And speaking of backwards…Our “Friends” at DHS, Dept of Homeland Security.
A new promotional video released by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes white middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists, as Big Sis continues its relentless drive to cement the myth that mad bombers are hiding around every corner, when in reality Americans are just as likely to be killed by lightning strikes or peanut allergies.

The video is part of Homeland Security’s $10 million dollar “See Something, Say Something” program that encourages Americans to report “suspicious activity,” which in every case throughout history has been a trait of oppressive, dictatorial regimes.

In the course of the 10 minute clip, a myriad of different behaviors are characterized as terrorism, including opposing surveillance, using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application.

Big Brother and Big Sis are watching you. And you better behave or else!

And watch out for Whitey, he’s an evil racist, bigoted, teabagger Terrorist!

Meanwhile, the actual bad guys we sell them guns to kills us with and let them move freely back and forth across our Southern Border. Great Job, Janet!

Despite encouraging viewers not to pay attention to a person’s race in determining whether or not they may be a terrorist, almost all of the scenarios in the clip proceed to portray white people as the most likely terrorists. Bizarrely, nearly every single one of the “patriotic” Americans who reports on their fellow citizen is either black, Asian or Arab. Imagine if the video had portrayed every terrorist as an Arab and every patriotic snoop as white, there’d be an outcry and rightly so, but this strange reversal must have been deliberate on the part of the DHS, but why? Is this merely political correctness taken to the extreme or is something deeper at work?

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the DHS’ own internal documents list predominantly white conservative groups as the most likely terrorists, such as Ron Paul supporters, gun owners, gold bullion enthusiasts, and a myriad of other comparatively banal political interests that are largely the domain of white middle class Americans.

This has little to do with the color of a person’s skin, and everything to do with the fact that white, middle class Americans are the biggest roadblock when it comes to Big Sis expanding its control over every facet of American society.

But the facts don’t matter for a federal agency whose primary function is to manufacture fear to keep Americans under control and submissive to the fact that their economic futures and their constitutional rights are being torn to shreds by their own government while it points to a contrived outside threat as a convenient distraction.

“At its core, the video is filled with scenes of ordinary citizens spying on each other and alerting the authorities to their compatriots’ suspicious deeds,” writes Simon Black. In my favorite scene, a woman calls the police after snooping over the shoulder of a young man typing away on his smartphone.”

Black notes that such videos are solely aimed at reinforcing ignorance, hate and fear for those who still live in darkness and are completely unaware of the real agenda behind Homeland Security’s “see something, say something” charade.

But what is that agenda?

No matter where you look, from East Germany, to Communist Russia, to Nazi Germany, historically governments who encourage their own citizens to report on each other do so not for any genuine safety concerns or presumed benefits to security, but in order to create an authoritarian police state that coerces the people into policing each other’s behavior and thoughts.

As Robert Gellately of Florida State University has highlighted, Germans under Hitler denounced their neighbors and friends not because they genuinely believed them to be a security threat, but because they expected to selfishly benefit from doing so, both financially, socially and psychologically via a pavlovian need to be rewarded by their masters for their obedience.

At the height of its influence around one in seven of the East German population was an informant for the Stasi. As in Nazi Germany, the creation of an informant system was wholly centered around identifying political dissidents and those with grievances against the state, and had little or nothing to do with genuine security concerns.

This is the kind of society the Department of Homeland Security is, whether deliberately or inadvertently, recreating in 21st century America. It is about as far removed as you can possibly get from the vision the founders of the nation had in mind when they created the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.

So welcome to the Orwellian future from the past. A giant leap backwards for Freedom and Democracy.

But at least you’ll know that they government will take care of you from birth (if allowed) until death (when they decide).

Rejoice! They are from the Government and they are here to save you from yourself!

And you want to re-elect these people why?
