New York to Iowa: Why I Traveled to Help Michele Bachmann by Irv Pollack
Let’s look this election in another way.
Conservatives need to ask, “What are the liberals’ principles? What are the ends that liberals seek? What is the point at which they will no longer have grievances against America? If conservatives ask those questions, the answer will be something like this: Liberals will only be satisfied when historic America is eliminated! How are they eliminating historic America? Think about the changes that have and are taking place. Many states now sanction homosexual marriage. The military is now actively recruiting open homosexuals. We have opened our borders so that our very sovereignty is in question. We are told the lie that Americans don’t want to do the jobs that illegals are taking from them. Abortion continues at staggering numbers as if it were “peachy keen.” We have double standards everywhere to try to ensure equality of outcome. Merit is no longer the primary factor in advancing one’s education or career. We do not acknowledge the absolute incompatibility of Islamic law (Sharia) with our way of life. We are destroying the American family by rewarding illegitimacy. Spending is obscene and has to end somewhere in a train wreck for our children and grandchildren. Our major institutions (academia, the media giants, education, advertising, Hollywood, etc.) bombard us with relentless propaganda, casting an almost impenetrable veil over our eyes and minds. These people are “one worlders” who think that man is perfectible if we only would let them run things.
If conservatives would identify the true liberal agenda in this way, and oppose it, then conservatism would mean something. Mainstream conservatives never make this point because it would show that liberals and conservatives have no common ground, which would further mean that the American system, based on the assumption that we all share the same basic loyalties and principles, is gone. Conservatives’ main function is to uphold and preserve the American system. Therefore, conservatives cannot afford to identify what it really is that liberals really believe. TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN SYSTEM, THEY MUST HELP THE LIBERALS CONCEAL WHAT LIBERALISM IS REALLY ABOUT! In short, conservatives, in order to carry out their mission of preserving and defending the American system, must conceal the fact that the liberals’ mission is to destroy the American system. Crazy isn’t it?
A great summary of where we are/how did we get here.
Here is Judge Napolitano’s closing argument yesterday on his FreedomWatch.
Does the government work for us or do we work for the government? Is freedom in America a myth or a reality? Tonight, what if we didn’t live in a free country?
What if the Constitution were written not to limit government, but to expand it? What if the Constitution didn’t fulfill the promise of the Declaration of Independence, but betrayed it? What if the Constitution actually permitted the government to limit and constrict freedom? What if the Bill of Rights was just a paper promise, that the government could avoid whenever it claimed the need to do so? What if the same generation – in some cases the same people – that drafted the U.S. Constitution enacted laws that violated it? What if the merchants and bankers who financed the American Revolution bought their way into the new government and got it to enact laws that stifled their competition? What if the civil war that was fought in the name of freedom actually advanced the cause of tyranny?
What if the federal government were the product of 150 years of stealing power and liberty and property from the people and the states? What if our political elites spent the 20th century importing the socialist ideas of big government Statism from Europe? What if our political class was adopting the European political culture from which our founding fathers fought so hard to break free?
What if our political leaders no longer acknowledged that our rights come from our humanity, but insisted instead that they come from the government? What if you had to produce your papers to get out of or into our once-free country? What if you couldn’t board a plane, a train, or a long-distance bus without providing documentation telling the government who you are and where you’re going, without paying the government, and without risking sexual assault? What if your local police department could shoot down a plane? What if government agents could write their own search warrants, declare their own enemies, and seize whatever property they want? What if the feds could detain you indefinitely, with no visitors, no lawyer, no judge, and no jury? What if they could make you just disappear? What if the government broke its own laws in order to enforce them? What if the government broke down your front door in the middle of the night and shot your dog, and claimed it was a mistake?
What if you were required to purchase a product that you didn’t need, didn’t want, and couldn’t afford, from a company you never heard of, just as a condition of living in the United States? What if the government told you what not to put in your body as well as what to put into it; and how much? What if the government claimed that since it will be paying your medical bills, it can tell you what to eat, when to sleep, and how to live? What if the government tried to cajole and coax and compel you into behaviors and attitudes it considered socially acceptable? What if the government spent your tax money to advertise to you how great the services are that it provides? What if the government kept promising to make you safe while it kept stripping you of your liberties and committing crimes in your name that made you a target of more violence?
What if you didn’t have a right to every dollar you earned? What if the government decided how much of your earnings it will keep and how much it will permit you to have? What if the government took money from you and gave it away to its rich banking and corporate friends whose businesses were failing? What if the government thought it knew better than you did how to lead your life and had no problem telling you so? What if the government took the credit for every success your own human actions helped you achieve? What if the government told you that only it could build roads, run schools, keep you safe, and collect trash even though it’s never been able to do so efficiently before? What if the government spent nearly twice as much as it took in? What if it couldn’t pass a budget on a timely basis and funded itself just weeks at a time? And what if the government kept borrowing money against the wealth of future generations to pay for wasteful programs today?
What if you worked for the government and the government didn’t work for you? What if freedom were a myth? What if we don’t live in a free country? What do we do about it?
From New York, defending freedom; so-long America.
September 30, 2011
Well, the NRA just gave me a call about the UN Gun Grab (!). They thought they were going to solicit me, but instead that got a rant instead. My final words to them were simply they cannot be trusted to do what is right and that my money is better served going to the GOA and the JPFO. I give you this from Alvie D. Zane of The Cliffs Of Insanity titled UN Gun GRAB!!!! which pretty much sums up most of my other comments to them:

UN Gun Grab!!!!!!
From now on, I’ll refer to the UN Gun Grab!!! as the NRA Money Grab!!!
Tough guy Wayne LaPierre had his telemarketers pay me a phone call today. Right as I got in the house, I was greeted by the NRA.
I received the customary welcome message, then Wayne’s 2 minutes of hate for the UN Gun Grab (with extra exclamation points!!!!), then a “poll question” of whether I supported the UN going after gun rights on American soil.
I gave no answer, but I did get another human on the line.
He gave me the pitch for a 5 year membership-all of the benefits, the perks, the free decal, and the commemorative NRA knife.
Forgive me but why not something that’s at least related to firearms. A bayonet? Yes. A cute rosewood handled commemorative knife? Eh….not so much. Don’t want to get in trouble with the tree popo.
Finally, my chance to talk.
Excellent…open bomb bay doors
Well sir, I actually dropped my NRA membership. And I’ll tell you why I’m proud of that.
A couple of years ago, about 50 of us got together. We manned up and rifled up and carried openly on the banks of the Potomac-in sight of the Washington Monument and the Capitol Dome. Larry Pratt from Gun Owners of America came. But no NRA. Press from all over the world came, but the NRA wouldn’t touch us.
As far as the UN Gun Grab goes, I’ve been hearing this talk from the NRA for years. Honestly, I don’t care what the UN does, what Obama does, what Washington does.
My rights are God-given, they are unalienable and no piece of paper can take them away. My freedom doesn’t depend on what a judge says, on what Washington says, or even what the majority says. If they want to come grab our guns, then let them try. And then we’ll see what “fighting for our gun rights” looks like.
Understand that this sentiment isn’t directed at you, but your bosses. Feel free to pass this uphill to them. Good day.
My only regret is that I didn’t talk longer and thereby consume valuable working time in a non-productive effort. Starve the monkey.
After I hung up, I thought of so much more that I could have said.
How the NRA won’t stand up for the Montana Firearms Freedom Act. How they didn’t want to push Heller. How they gave Harry Reid a “B”, yet couldn’t see their way fit to endorse his opponent when he was clearly vulnerable. How they are so late to the party where Gunwalker is concerned. How they aren’t a “cold dead hands” organization anymore, but instead insist we need to be tough like Chuck and trigger the vote.
I suppose I also could have tried to get the caller to look through the Hoffman lenses.
Well, I’ll have something to talk about next time they call.
I am glad that OneSTDV, despite being an incorrigible racist, has given me this outlet to inform you inbred hicks about true racism and legacy of the authoritarian menace that is the white race and the nefarious deeds said race has foisted upon People of Color in lands that they have never been welcome in despite thinking that they are welcome there, indubitably. Since I am currently studying these courses at a top American university, I am far better equipped to understand the historical infractions engendered by the white race as it proffers its legacy of extirpation around the world. People of Color have been mere innocent bystanders as racist whites have taken over their lands, destroyed their traditions, rapaciously plundered all the intrepid innovations of People of Color, raped their women, and then had the audacity to impose upon them the racist standards of modern society. Just to be clear, you are all racist and I am only writing this post because it is incumbent upon the informed to inform the uninformed and even though I believe you all are inconsequentially perturbed and beyond redress, I have a duty to my brothers and sisters of color to do so.
Now I am a white male so one must understand that everything I say and everything I know is undeniably motivated by the insidious and vapid constructs of social and societal and political privilege that dominate this racist and sexist and colonialist and ableist and genderist and socially constructed and racist and sexist and biased and anti-fat and anti-anti society that I unfortunately must call home and that pays all my bills via student loans. So while I’ll try my best to relay the information about historical legacies of structural and institutional racist sexism and People of Color suffering inherent to society’s structures, only a handicapped, half-blind, fat, invalid, black, female-trans, lesbian could do so in a sufficient manner.
Since OneSTDV, probably because he’s a racist, has only given me limited amount of space, let me just explain why you’re all racists. First, you’re all white and even those of you that aren’t white have been fomented by the invidious constructs of social construction that underpin the institutional racism that pervades this society. In other words, white people are all racist because society makes them all that way. You can do nothing about it, only the tears of a Person of Color, preferably an illiterate lesbian from South Africa, can cure you of this affliction. White people can not understand the plight of People of Color because they are blinded by society and its inherent white morality, a morality that views all People of Color as intractably below them. Only People of Color can understand the vast problems of society because they must deal with white racists every single day and every single minute of their lives.
Further, every single white in the world should be held accountable for the collective moral transgressions of the white race. People of Color have been victimized by whites for far too long and until those past sins are expunged from the moral record of whites, either by disenfranchisement or as in killing such as in the <a href=”http://onestdv.blogspot.com/2011/05/excusing-black-murderers.html?showComment=1304432984498#c3185233729566761226″>justified killing of Amy Beihl</a>, then whites must ask for forgiveness every day. Any crime committed by a Person of Color is justified because People of Color can never do any wrong. They are just reacting to a racist society and so anything they do, even killing for no reason, is justified and should be celebrated. Whites can never complain about crime because white people killed some People of Color in 1750 and we will never forget that. People of Color who commit crime today can never get back all the years of abuse from whites and so whatever they do now is just collective retribution for white transgressions of the past and so I think every Person of Color criminal is actually a hero because they are righting a wrong inferred by the callous actions of the white man, who is bad.
People of Color do not commit crimes then, they commit acts of justified retribution. Every death of a white person, <a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumia_Abu-Jamal”>especially of a cop</a>, is justified because People of Color can never do anything wrong. People of Color in prison are all innocent because they never did anything, it was racist judges and racist lawyers and racist policemen and racist shopowners and racist grandmothers and racist dogs and racist squirrels and racist buildings and racist cars.
Damn, you hicks just don’t understand the struggle. I grew up in New Hampshire and I knew a black kid once and I felt for him so much because all the other kids at school were so nice to him and so willing to include him in everything they did. And all the other parents would treat him like all the other kids. Damn racists.
Now, I know you racists will throw out some racist stuff like test scores and everything, but those are culturally biased. Asians score better only because they hate themselves. Blacks would actually score better than whites if the tests were appropriate. Did I mention that you guys have small penises and you’re just jealous that black men have big penises and could give it to me so hard? Back to test scores and statistics, statistics are really just a ploy of racist whites to keep People of Color down, same with victim surveys (racist eyes), track and field, and education. All racist and all wrong. In fact, even reading those racist studies is racist, so I don’t do that.
Finally, let me explain why People of Color have done everything good in this world. They commit no crime, it only looks that way because <a href=”http://www.debbieschlussel.com/3982/law-order-quota-shows-producer-mandates-83-of-criminals-must-be-white-rich-people/”><span style=”font-style: italic;”>Law and Order</span> has racist writers</a> and so does the news and the crime pages and the newspapers and YouTube and cameras are racist too. People of Color have invented everything good in the world, but then white people stole it all because that’s what the insidiously criminal white race does to the humble and generous and sacred People of Color, with their hard bodies and their voices and their chocolate skin and their rapping, oh their hardcore rapping is so great. So white people steal stuff and then try to take credit for all the great stuff invented by People of Color who are way better than they are. Whites just can’t compete with People of Color so that’s why they run and hide. But you can’t hide for long racists, People of Color are taking over and we’ll have our utopia of big, bad, brothas and their doorags and their Tim boots and oh yea, can’t wait for that. People of Color will rise up and then we’ll have the society we always wanted where there is no crime, no oppression, no victimization, and nothing wrong because any problem ever caused in the world, white people did it. Even if they didn’t directly do it, they did it by being white and existing and also by looking at People of Color with their white privilege.
But the day is coming when People of Color will undermine white privilege and it will be great. So heed my advice you racists, with your math and statistics and incontrovertible evidence for every single racial disparity, you will rue the day when People of Color, the rainbow coalition, rises up against you and your horrible society with the highest standard of living, the best medicine, the most stable social landscape, and the most opportunity for success. When this racist society comes crashing down on your racist heads, you will understand how it feels and you should grovel for the forgiveness of People of Color who have done the thankless work to keep your society going – running drugs and guns across the border, working in your prisons (for free!), maintaining gang life, rapping about bitches and hoes, and updating the lexicon and social landscape with stuff like making it rain and droppin’ it to the flo’.
White privilege is done racists. So take your computers, your technology, your food, your modern medicine, your democracy, your poetry, your music, your low level of crime, your civic service, your academia, your science, your philosophy, and your stable societies and shove it.
Oh and race is a social construct, we’re all the same except blacks are the best, there’s more variation in group than out group, tests are all biased, institutional racism, white supremacy, Western beauty standards, and mother’s basement losers small penis in the ass jealous.
