“Men of the West” nails it to the wall in this piece! People that want to get into the minutia of “Why” those guys shouldn’t take a knee, are missing the big picture. The big picture is that our culture is one of honoring and respecting our ancestors. Our culture is one of showing those who have sacrificed everything for us, the respect they’ve earned and greatly deserve. Our culture is one of respecting the right of someone to disagree, but never allowing our cherished history, the representations of that history, or those under our care and protection to be disrespected.
I am ashamed to see all the “entitled” little, sycophantic, troglodytes who come out to protest something they’ve never experienced, don’t know the actual history of, and honestly, don’t care about. You know, every day is “opposites” day to them, and they do it generally because ………”Social Media”. Social Media is not just a societal cancer, it is a blood poison that is racing towards the “Heart” and is shutting down all the important “organs” along the way.
Do I use social media? Yes, I use Face Book (it’s part of the PACE commo plan if nothing else). Would I have an issue with giving it up tomorrow? Not in the least. Our Damned education system has become a top down progressive/socialist/communist cesspool that defines the immoral, unethical and just plain societally disgusting as “normal”. We see now the “Educated” Imbeciles that are coming out of “higher learning”, and they make their own sterilization look like the only option to save our society.
The Author of this post mentions “The Hard Right” (and no, I don’t consider National Socialist to be part of the “Right” at all, they are socialists) at the end of the article. Although I don’t necessarily identify myself that way when asked about my political leanings, I usually do not like saying I am a “conservative” anymore either (as a good friend says, they’ve never conserved anything), because most prominent conservatives haven’t showed the intestinal fortitude of a helium balloon.
The fact that this conversation has to even be taking place in our society means we are on borrowed time, and you had better get your mind right concerning where we are at, and what needs to be done. If “conservatives” are considered to be the majority on “The Right”, I guess we really have no choice but to say and identify that we are the furthest extreme away from the center ( and those “mainstream” conservatives) as possible, and I guess that makes us “Hard Right” doesn’t it.
THE REAL REASON TAKE A KNEE IS A PROBLEM
There has been a lot of digital ink spilled over the past couple of days regarding the NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem. There’s clearly a lot of people that are very offended by it, but this article isn’t going to be about that directly. Sure, it was the intent of Colin Kaepernick to do something that many people would find exceedingly vexing to draw attention to his cause (which was the whole Black Lives Matter movement, but that has also been lost in the whole kerfluffle). The First Amendment says that the government can’t make you salute the flag. The NFL could enforce their rules, and they probably should, but that’s not what I want to talk about either, because it’s not even been a week and that’s been done to death.
The real reason this is a problem is because it’s an assault from the political left on our culture as Americans. The SJW’s have invaded yet another space and are demanding that everybody virtue signal for the right causes or else. No matter how you feel about the US Flag and the US Anthem, it’s an important part of the national culture. And this has all been kicked into overdrive since Trump made his opinion on the matter known. And now, we’re seeing a never ending series of people dropping to their knees to virtue signal that they hate Donald Trump.
And here’s where we get to the heart of the matter. Conservatives and Christians have been losing the culture since the 1960’s. Every time there’s a new front that opens, we fall back. Churches lose their tax exempt status if they say something that upsets a politician, and it’s just accepted, and we fall back. Abortion is shoved down our throats, and we fall back. The government taxes us to pay for abortion, and we fall back. Prayer gets thrown out of public schools and we fall back. Christmas becomes a hateful word, and we fall back. The government takes over health care, demands we pay for abortion and abortifacients, and we fall back. Marriage – a sacrament of the Church – is taken from us and perverted in ways that the Church can only consider to be heresy, and we fall back. Lets face it, our backs are to the wall. Barack Obama wanted to “fundamentally transform” the United States, and this is the sort of transformation he was talking about. We are looking at the very realistic possibility of a Post-Christian America, where the history that we had, that tells us who we are and where we have come from, is wiped out and the shiny new Secular Utopia comes into being. Confederate statues being wiped out, our national symbols and traditions ceasing to matter, the left is actively trying to wipe out our cultural memory so that they can reshape us into something new.
And sometimes, cultures die. Sometimes, I look around, and I certainly feel like maybe I’m just a relic of a time long since passed. I see “Conservatives” taking shots at Donald Trump when he says something right, but just in a way that they don’t approve of, and that’s why we keep losing these fights. “Conservatism” is dead in the United States, and it’s because it has become infested with Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys who would rather go down to a glorious and noble defeat than push back against the enemies of western civilization for risk of offending them. But here’s the thing – if you’ve felt the despair at seeing your culture thrown away and thought you were the last man left who cared, it turns out that you are not alone, there’s more of us than we get credit for.
And that is why the time has come for the Hard Right. Conservatism is dead, and while we may continue to use the term “Conservative,” the movement that used the name has become so infested and overrun with quislings looking for a communist to surrender to, that it is no longer salvageable. The way forward is The Hard Right Manifesto.
So, why does the whole taking a knee thing matter? Because we aren’t willing to fall back anymore. Welcome to the Hard Right.
