American Values

In recent days various individuals and representatives of various groups have claimed that executive orders issued by the Trump administration do not represent “American Values”.  I have found this particularly interesting in light of recent protests.

At UC Berkeley last night property was destroyed, people were injured, police were assaulted.  All of this during a protest of a speech by a Breitbart news editor.  Oddly, I was under the impression that “Freedom of Speech” was an American value.  But it seems I was mistaken.

At The Women’s March in Washington speeches were given expressing vulgarities, profanity, and in one case discussion of bombing the Whitehouse.  I thought, apparently mistakenly, that public decency was an American Value.

The simple fact here is that the left is only in support of free speech if they agree with what you are saying.  They are only concerned about what their sons and daughters hear from national leaders, if those leaders are Republicans.  So they run ads saying “Our children our watching, what kind of President do you want them to see?”  But they have no problem with the filth that spewed out of the mouths of Madonna and Ashley Judd.  In fact, their children weren’t just watching, they were brought to the event.

The truth is, we are going to have to take this nation back from the left-wing loons now attempting to control it.  We have beaten them at the ballot box.  We have beaten them in the courts.  Now they want to reduce a difference of opinion to riots in the streets.  I’m afraid we’re going to have to beat them there too.

Amazingly, though 6 people were injured and tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage done, not a single person was arrested at Berkeley last night.  Clearly the police are either ill-equipped, or not motivated, to do their jobs.  We may have reached the point where we need to do it for them.

We may have reached the point where the only reasonable response is a proportional response.  Because people who refuse to have a discussion, or accept the results of an election, apparently understand nothing else.

IMHO the time has come to meet violence with overwhelming force.

It is sad that we have gotten to this place, but it is the left that has put us here.  It is simply up to us, the sane, rational, normal people of this nation to decide if we will allow anarchists to tear our nation down one brick at a time.

I, for one, am not okay with that.

 

No Racism

Much of what I am about to say has been or will be said on conservative radio today. Outside of that, you likely will not hear any of it on social media, the mainstream news, or in liberal blogs.  This is primarily due to the fact that liberals, as a group, are incapable of thought and fact based argument.  You may consider that a broad based accusation.  I consider it simply, the truth.

So let’s start with the notion of racism. If liberals were capable of thought they would understand the fact that selecting people originating from specific countries is not racism.  If it is anything it would be nationalism.  The thing the affected people have in common is their nation of origin, not their race.

Next, let us consider that no one has been “banned”. A moratorium has been placed on immigration from 7 nations, which were identified by the Obama administration and voted on by Congress to be placed on a list of “Countries of Concern”.  These are all nations known to harbor terrorists and/or sponsor terrorism.  The decision to implement a system whereby immigrants and visitors from these nations are more closely scrutinized is a sound one from a security perspective.

“It’s a Muslim ban!” No snowflake…it’s not.  If it were a Muslim ban there are 40 more predominantly Muslim nations which would also be on the list.  They are not.

“It’s Unconstitutional!” This one makes me laugh.  Not because I think violations of the Constitution are funny, but because I think hearing it from people who sat silent while Obama violated the constitution is funny.  For instance, people are up in arms about Trump’s proposal to deport around 2-3 million criminal illegals.  Meanwhile Obama actually did deport 2.4 million illegals, and no one said a word.  Explain that…

What’s truly sad is to hear members of Congress say that what Trump is doing is illegal and unconstitutional. The President has the authority to set immigration policy.  Just like Obama could decide to jack up the number of refugees coming in, Trump can decide to lower it.  It’s pretty simple and clear cut.  You don’t need an advanced degree to get it.

Lastly, no one has a right to enter this country. Not even you, snowflake U.S. citizen.  Once you leave you are subject to being allowed to return.  You can be pulled aside, questioned, have your bags inspected, etc.  And you may not be sent on your way until Customs and Immigration are content with your presence.  So the notion that a non-citizen has some sort of “right” to come here is comical.

It’s sad that liberals would rather put the safety and security of their fellow citizens in jeopardy than appear mean to immigrants. But, as Europe is finding out, when you cast open the door and allow middle-eastern immigrants/refugees from war torn, terror prone, nations to enter…you get the war and the terror along with them.  This is not a knock against the people per se.  it is simply an acknowledgement of reality.  Portions of the UK, France, Germany, and others, are learning this lesson as we speak.  As rapes, other crimes, and terrorist acts, increase across Europe.  As people with one way of thinking, which has no regard for women or basic human rights, move into and occupy land historically occupied by people with a diametrically opposed set of values.

It’s very simple when you boil it down.

Many people from these nations believe it is okay, in fact ordained by God, to treat women as cattle. They believe homosexuality is a crime.  They believe that Allah is God, Mohammed his prophet, and Sharia his law.  They do not accept, and will not accept, western culture and values.  Period.  Not all of them, but many of them.  We need to know which is which.

You may agree or disagree with various policies put forward by the Trump administration. But there is no argument that we need to properly vet ANYONE coming into this country.  Especially those coming from areas known to be terrorist enclaves.

This is just plain old common sense.

Which is why liberals don’t get it.

Not My President

I’ve seen this expression on signs and all over social media.  Various people, upset at the election of Donald Trump, have taken to stating that he is not their President.  I may touch on the obvious fallacy in this statement, but that is not my purpose in writing this morning.  This Monday after the Inauguration my purpose is to discuss the distinct differences between the right and the left.

First, the most obvious.  I do not think that in my entire lifetime there has ever been a riot started by or participated in by White Republicans.  If someone out there can document one, I will stand corrected.  But it is my belief that at no point in time have white Republicans decided that the method by which they should express their dissatisfaction assaulting police officers, and destroying property.

Second, I am fairly certain that no right wing organization has banned or punished members for holding different views.  Meanwhile Hollywood, the media, and various left leaning organizations are disparaging, threatening, and boycotting people like Steve Harvey for engaging with Donald Trump or performing at the inauguration.

Trump and Republicans are routinely criticized for dividing the nation by race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.  But it is clearly the left that practices identity politics.  Take for example the “Women’s March”.  Self described feminists who hold a pro-life position were specifically told they were not welcome to participate.  As if believing in the preservation of life strips one of their identity as a woman.

In reality, since it is the left that pushes the notion that there is no such thing as gender to begin with, and that a person is whatever they identify as, it strikes me as odd that they would even have a “Women’s March”.

The simple, demonstrable, inarguable fact is that it is the Democrats and their supporters who practice intolerance, bigotry, and racism.

The actual definition of tolerance is putting up with things you don’t like.  Republicans do that every day.  We are by and large, and as a matter of policy, generally content to let people live their lives.  And we genuinely believe in, and practice, freedom of speech.  The left does not.

As a member of the left you are not free to speak your mind, or deviate in any way from the party line.  If you do you will be shouted down, ostracized, and in some instances physically assaulted.  These things simply do not happen at right wing events, rallies, protests, etc.  As an example, it has now been documented that the violence at Trump rallies during the campaign was instigated, and orchestrated, by organized left wing groups.

The simple fact is that the left is actually guilty of all the things they claim the right is guilty of.  This can be proven through their own statements in writing and on video.

It is my hope that our new President will transcend all of the pettiness and BS, and actually move forward in a manner that will benefit all of us.  In fact, I am certain that whatever he does will be intended to benefit all of us.  Why?  Because Republicans see people as Americans, it is Democrats that see people as hyphenated Americans.

Bottom line snowflake…he is YOUR President, and he will be for at least the next 4 years.  So put your clothes back on, put the signs away, stop littering, rioting, and making fools of yourself in public…and let’s get about the business that should be at the top of EVERY American’s priority list.

Making America Great Again!
