You’re all idiots

Published

on

President Trump would have made a lot more headway last weekend if he hadn’t said “there are good people on both sides” last weekend, though nothing would have ever been good enough for the Left and MSM. No, Mr. President. No there is not. In fact, I would go so far as to say there are NO good people on either side. They’re all idiots.

Sure, you could argue that SOME might have been there just to protest the white supremacists, but what good would it do? Taking an angry group of malcontents down to confront another group of angry malcontents is never a recipie for anything but disaster. Being there was an act of stupidity. From here on out I’ll have no sympathy for anyone who gets hurt or killed at these things. Doesn’t mean I think they deserve it, just that it was easily foreseeable and they chose not to avoid it.

What good does protesting do anyway? Does it ever change minds anymore? It was effective in the ’60s, but the fact is, most of just sit back and laugh. Women’s March? Nothing but vile hilarity at the idea these people wanted to be taken seriously. Wearing costumes and hats will do nothing but garner ridicule from intelligent people.

The multitude of Antifa protests? Just children creating mayhem, hiding their faces so their upper-middle class or rich parents won’t see them and cut them off. Notice they never pull this crap somewhere like Texas? Because they know the ordinary citizens wouldn’t tolerate it, even if the liberal mayors of the major cities did.

The white supremacists? I know the radical left would love you to believe there are more of them than there are, but they are a tiny microcosm of the white population. Far smaller than say, the Islamic “extremists” that plague the Muslim culture, yet never fail to gain excuses from the radical left. Most of us have moved on from that way of thinking 30 years ago. It’s being drummed up for people to create chaos. It has been for years.

Black Lives Matter? Same. Sure, there are good folks in there, but when you associate with the likes of DRay etc, you lose credibility. They’re using you for their own purposes. Again, most of us no matter what our politics see you as a human being, not a black or white or anything else human being.

All of you, your protests don’t mean anything to any of us. We’re just trying to go to work, pay our bills, raise our families, and if you’re divorced and single like me, occasionally attempt to fine a decent woman. Pro tip ladies: guys like me, stable, with a good career and caring, aren’t interested in your radical views to change the country we love. If you’re protesting because you don’t like men, maybe they aren’t the problem, maybe YOU are.

So here’s my suggestion protesters: Find Jesus. Get a hobby. Get a job. Join a book club. Start building models. Take a chill pill prescribed by your physician, or shoot, smoke some weed. Chill. Out. Find some meaning in your lives other than being offended in perpetuity.

I think if you gained some perspective, you’d realize that, unless it’s the government encroaching on your business or freedoms, or taxing you into submission, you really don’t have anything to complain about. Most of the things you complain about that CAN be solved would be BETTER solved by you going out and working on them, not throwing a public hissy fit. For example, instead of protesting poverty why not volunteer for Habitat for Humanity or something? DO something. Don’t just whine about it.

As for protesting things like statues? Personally, I don’t care. But if walking by some metal or stone offends you, seriously, re-evaluate your life. You’re clearly not bothering with anything of value. Go do something of VALUE. At the moment you’re just useful idiots anyway.

Now that I’ve spoken to the 95%, I say to the 5% who actually understand the ins and outs of these protests: You’re cowards. You can’t get Socialism in this country at the ballot box so you want to take it by force. You keep stirring up anarchy for your nefarious purposes, and you’re going to lose. I’ve written previously as to why you’d fail here where you’ve succeeded elsewhere: the 2nd Amendment. You know that, which is why you’ve tried so hard for so many years to take it, but you’ve now realized we’re not giving it up without a LITERAL fight, and so you go ahead with your anarchy anyway. That’s not going to go as well for you as you think.

People have every right to peacefully assemble, but I have every right to make fun of you for it. We all do. And we will. The more you go protest when it’s over idiotic imagined slights, or for things you could be fixing yourself, the less interested we’ll be in your particular cause. All of you, stop being idiots.

The strange tale of the Turpin family

The strange tale of the Turpin family

Abuse of children is one of the most horrible things anyone can do. Rarely do I even read stories about abuse. I know it exists. I’m against it. I don’t want reminders of how evil some people really are. The story of the Turpin family drew me in and made me weep for a world that allows such things to happen.

Here’s the story, followed by my brief thoughts:

California family: Parents charged after children found shackled

http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/16/us/california-turpin-13-siblings-held-captive/index.htmlDavid, 57, and Louise, 49, are accused of holding their children captive in their Perris, California, home in filthy conditions, some of them shackled to beds with chains and padlocks. The 13 siblings range in age from 2 to 29.

The parents are charged with torture and child endangerment, and scheduled for a court hearing Thursday. Bail was set at $9 million each. It was not immediately clear if the suspects had attorneys or whether they had entered a plea.

On Sunday, one of their daughters, a 17-year-old, managed to escape from their home by climbing out a window and called 911 from a deactivated cell phone she found in the house, police said. She told officers her parents were holding her 12 siblings captive inside the home, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.

My Take

There’s a danger here. We have to be mindful of children who are being abused. Unfortunately, that also means there will be times when the state must intervene. Any time that happens, I get worried. I want as little intervention as possible and only when absolutely necessary. The story of the Turpin family is an example of it being necessary.

The problem is that this evil was allowed to continue for decades. How can that happen? How do we respect the rights of parents and embrace a non-interfering government when there are people like the Turpins in the world? It’s a slippery slope and I have no answers.

Is the Republican Party racist?

Is the Republican Party racist

Racism isn’t broken down by party lines. There are racists in every political party in America. Some are more public than others, but generally speaking it’s clear there are racists everywhere. Thankfully, there are fewer of them today than in the past. A good part of the reason for this is cultural, but politically it’s been the Republican Party, not the Democratic Party, that has championed the cause of equal rights.

Unfortunately, there are two things that are changing the way history is perceived by many Americans. The first is a false narrative created by both mainstream media and liberal activists who paint the GOP as racists. The second is the reality of conservative values. While the fight for smaller government and more freedom is a righteous one, it’s also a fight that is more appealing to racists than the liberal ideologies of more government and less freedom.

Historically, the evidence is clearly on the side of the GOP, as this PragerU video demonstrates.

Kevin Swanson: Christian persecution is a good thing

Kevin Swanson Christian persecution is a good thing

On the January 5, 2018, Generations podcast, Kevin Swanson points to the recent Oregon Court of Appeals ruling in favor of a lesbian couple who were emotionally distraught that Sweet Cakes By Melissa would not honor their same-sex wedding by making them a wedding cake. As a means of business transaction, the state of Oregon basically told its citizens that they must enter a private contract with certain parties just because they happen to be gay and want them to honor their marriage or anything LGBTQ related because they have “rights.” If someone wants to honor God’s Law and God’s Holy Word, you should not have the power to force them to sin against God which the state wants many Christians to do. The LGBTQ jihad have successfully destroyed a family-run business in Oregon.

As we all know, Christian persecution is nothing new but especially in America. It just seems to be magnified thanks to the LGBTQ/Rainbow Jhaid being the progressives ‘imperial stormtroopers.’ Swanson points out the times in which Samuel Worcester (who sided with the Cherokee Indians who did not want to abandon their lands thanks to President Andrew Jackson who wanted the lands to mine for gold and helped usher in “The Trail of Tears.” Lest we forget that Jackson used blacks as slaves and as his own prostitutes), Everett Siliven (a Nebraska Baptist pastor who had to shut down his church-run private school for children because it was not “licensed” by the state), and Randy Alcorn (a pastor sued by Planned Parenthood for “transpassing on their property” because they wanted to encourage women not to murder their unborn babies) lived in the persecution they had to deal with.

They may be footnotes in history, but they really should not be. It is the testimony of how the State wants to take God’s place in this world, and do whatever it wants regardless of who it harms for their respected personal gains. Compared to what? Jackson and company getting rich at the expense of displacing Native Americans? Giving up Christian education because you’re not licensed by the state and sending children to the government-run monopoly to become the next useful idiots for the pagans that rule the world? Or being able to murder pre-born babies so you need not worry about the procreation part of sexual relations?

Christians can’t be cowards in any day and age. If we don’t stand for God, then the pagans would have then and now scored victories against God and his Holy Law, in their attempts to break free of God himself and earn salvation on their own. Many people have died for the faith and they have been allowed by the Grace of God to be remembered. Other people have come to Jesus because of the people that gave their lives and freedoms for the Lord. In that sense, persecution is a good thing.

Inevitable Persecution for U.S. Christians

https://www.generations.org/programs/836The family bakery in Oregon lost their appeal, and now they are forced to surrender $135,000 to a lesbian couple for not supporting their wedding. Christians who believe even the most rudimentary Christian truths have fallen into the very slim minority, and are persecuted as such.  We go through the history of Christian persecution in the United States from Samuel Worcester in the 1830s to Everett Siliven, Randy Alcorn, and other familiar names of those who have suffered for the faith.
