Thank you Donald Trump for saving the national anthem

Published

on

That’s what he did. Trump saved the national anthem.

What, you really thought these protests were about solidarity with Colin Kaepernick’s right to protest? What do you think Kaepernick was protesting? What do you think anyone who refuses to stand for the National Anthem is protesting?

Are they protesting some undefined view of America, as a factory of white privilege, dream-stealing, rich people enslaving the interests of poor blacks? Is that what the millionaires who play for the NFL are protesting? Are they protesting some unfair system that prevents people from getting ahead, when the NFL’s rosters are 70 percent black?

No. They are protesting symbols. And the symbol Kaepernick and those who support him have chosen is the National Anthem. They want it removed from sporting events. After all, it’s not a law that the anthem has to be played before all American sports events. It’s just tradition. And tradition, for progressives, is the enemy. If a progressive happens upon a fence with a gate, he does not ask why the fence is there, or who put it there. He simply labels the fence-builder as an oppressive racist and removes the fence, the gate, and any evidence they were ever there.

Progressives have defaced a statue of Francis Scott Key in Baltimore, not because of Key (who himself was a minor historical figure), but because of the anthem he wrote.

It’s the anthem they want removed from public life. They have started their biggest push with the NFL, spurred on by Kaepernick, and his subsequent status as too hot to handle by any NFL team. They’ve smuggled the “kill the anthem” goalposts into a “stand with Colin” argument.

President Trump called them out. He ignored Kaepernick and went right for the anthem. Standing for the anthem means the anthem stays. Sitting, kneeling, staying in the locker room, means the anthem is doomed. If Trump had not said anything, it’s likely that at least one team would stop playing the anthem before its games, to show “sensitivity” for the players who find it offensive. Then two teams, then all the teams.

And, poof, just like that, the National Anthem is gone from football. Then possibly baseball, or basketball, or hockey (but not NASCAR).

You say that’s ridiculous? That’s what we all said about traditional marriage being redefined in the 1990s. That’s what we said about a Christian being forced to cater a gay wedding in the early 2000s. That’s what we said about corporate executives being forced from their jobs over a political donation made years before to support traditional marriage. That’s what we said when the will of the people in California was overridden by a closeted gay judge for his own personal opinion to eliminate traditional marriage. That’s what we said before the Supreme Court did the same to the wills of people all over the country.

This nation is not the same place it was even thirty or forty years ago. But we are all tied together by certain threads of Americana: our flag, our anthem, our Constitution, our art, our achievements, and the beliefs set forth in the Declaration of Independence. Piece by piece, progressives would like to see those threads broken, so they can implement their unending quest to change, overthrow, only to overthrow again.

By making a stand from the highest political office in the land, Donald Trump stopped this thread from breaking. The NFL would now break before the anthem. Had Trump not have spoken and made this an issue,  that would not be true.

You might think that, compared to North Korea, Iran, health care, the national debt, antifa and white supremacists, that kneeling or sitting for the National Anthem at NFL games is a small issue. And it is, but from the standpoint of history, losing the National Anthem is not a small issue. The sitting and kneeling would eventually lead directly to the anthem’s demise. I say it’s better this is nipped in the bud and called out for what it is before it’s too late.

Once the anthem is lost from sporting events, it would never be regained. These kinds of small battles sometimes win the big wars.

So, thank you Donald Trump. You are fighting a small battle, and it may just help win the big war against the memory hole of progressivism.

Pro-life Trumpservatives praise Trump for protecting unborn babies he isn’t protecting

Pro-life Trumpservatives praise Trump for protecting unborn babies he isnt protecting

Lately, it seems that not a day goes by where we aren’t provided with another example of how conservative values have been consumed by the fires of compromise on the altar of Trumpservatism. While sacrificing principles for power is commonplace for the GOP priests serving in the Temple of Trump, the sad reality is that real priests, pastors, and other religious leaders have provided the kindling and the oil that fuels the flames.

One of the tragic consequences coming from the rise of the group I refer to as the Fellowship of the Pharisees concerns abortion. In the Age of Trump, these false teachers have abandoned their defense of the unborn under the delusion that Trump is keeping his promises.

On her blog (civilrightsfortheunborn.org), Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote a piece responding to recent accusations made by Omarosa Manigault Newman that Donald Trump often uses racial slurs. *

* NOTE: While her claims may or may not be true, Trump is taking advantage of this “squirrel” moment to let America know that Omarosa is a “low life” even though he frequently brags about how he hires only the “best people.”

After making her case in defense of Trump, King concluded with these words:

“He is keeping his campaign promises. The job market is better for everyone. Unemployment is at an all-time low. Babies and children are safer inside and outside the womb. Prayer is returning to the public square.” (emphasis mine)

King’s claim is not only untrue, but the lives of the unborn continue to grow more perilous … and profitable.

Besides the fact that Trump and the GOP have continued to fund Baby Butchers, Inc. (Planned Parenthood), the byproduct of their murderous practices (body parts) has become another revenue stream, courtesy of the taxpayer—an income stream that has increased under Republican control of Washington.

A few days ago, we learned about a contract between the US Food and Drug Administration and Advanced Biometric Resources (ABR) to acquire human fetal tissue for experiments on mice. In a 2016 Senate Judiciary Committee report, we learned that ABR’s primary source of baby parts was Planned Parenthood.

Trump and the GOP allegedly created the “most pro-life platform ever” in 2016, and they promised to defund Planned Parenthood and bring an end to dismemberment abortions. Despite candidate Trump’s pro-Planned Parenthood sentiments at the time, so-called pro-life activists believed he would fulfill the GOP’s promise. But as we learned earlier this year, they have no intention of doing so.

Unfortunately, those who used to defend the unborn baby in the womb have chosen to defend the unethical baby in the White House. Meanwhile, there will be hundreds of thousands more slaughtered babies, thanks to cowards like Trump, the GOP, and so-called religious leaders.

Ben Shapiro on white supremacists

One-liners have been a staple of Ben Shapiro’s appeal since the political commentator entered the public eye a few years ago. Give him a topic and he’ll come up with something clever and almost certainly true to say about it. The topic of white supremacists was no exception.

“It’s not coincidental that people who spend all day talking about the supposed innate superiority of the white race are invariably brick stupid.”

MSNBC and the Huffington Post would like a new name for Socialism’s brutal oppression and mass murder

MSNBC and the Huffington Post would like a new name for Socialisms brutal oppression and mass murder

Leftists seem to think that with a brand new label, people will readily accept the carnage and repression that is necessary in creating their wonderful collectivist Utopia.

Brute force is the only way that socialism can function, it can hardly take “From each according to their abilities” without it. But that’s a hard sell when compared to the voluntary exchange of Economic Liberty. In general, people would rather live in freedom than under the boot heel of oppression, so the Left has to lie to convince people to enslave themselves under socialism. It’s a little shell game Leftists have played for centuries with different labels or sloganeering to sell their system of control “to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”

We are now witness to the Left trying to craft new versions of labeling for their ancient ideas, emphasising the goodies without mentioning the mass murder that has to go along with it. It should go without saying that the sales pitch will be long on free-stuff everyone is supposed to vote for themselves and short on talk of the SEBIN hauling people off to La Tumba when the promises run short. Most rational people wouldn’t choose to live under the tyranny of authoritarian socialism aside from the Leftists who get to run the show.

At present, bastions of the principles of Liberty are feverishly writing advice columns on how to accomplish the task. With emphasis on “Free Healthcare”,” Free college”, “Free housing”, “Free food” instead of the fact that everyone loses their Liberty under socialistic slavery – except for the Leftists who are in control.

The claim is that things have somehow changed, for this will be socialism with ‘No gulags’, just all kinds of free stuff paid for with other people’s money. The days of concentration camps, firing squads and Comités de Defensa de la Revolución (CDR) are gone*.  [*Except for China, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela…] From the  Huffington Post – Relax, Boomers: Socialism Is Good Now.

The Liberty brain trust over on MSNBC discussed this issue while the host mocked everyone who fears the loss of freedom under socialistic slavery as mentioned on the Daily Wire: “But lots of people don’t get into the argument, they just go, ‘Oh my gosh, socialist, I can’t have that. It’s gonna take all my money,'” Ruhle arrogantly said while mocking American’s fears of socialism.

MSNBC’s Ruhle Mocks Fears of Socialism: ‘Oh My Gosh! It’s Gonna Take All My Money!’ 8-3-2018

But we on the Pro-Liberty Right would like to help out our comrades of the National Socialist-Left, They want a new name for their vile ideology of organised evil [Ops.. did we say that out loud..]. So we’re willing to help them out, given the effort will be difficult given the already existing 40 plus synonyms for their 500-year-old ideas:

Anarcho-syndicalism, Anarcho-Communism, Authoritarianism, Bolshevism, Castroism, Chávezism, Communism, collectivism, co-operative society, collective ownership, communalism, Economic Justice, Evolutionary Socialism, Fabianism, Fascism, Fourierism, Guild socialism, Leftism, Leninism, Libertarian-Socialist, Maoism, Marxism, Marxism–Leninism, National Socialism, Neofascism, Ochlocracy, Owenism, Progressivism, Project X, Reformism, Revolutionary Socialism, Rule of the proletariat, Social democracy, Social justice, Sovietism, Stalinism, Statism, State capitalism, State ownership, Syndicalism, Totalitarianism, Trotskyism, Utopian Socialism.

Aside from recycling a few words from the past, the Left is running short on words and slogans to sell Socialistic Slavery. So, in the spirit of generosity, we have a few suggestions for what the Left can do with it’s base ideology.

Notes on Leftist Labels

Leftists do have a penchant for playing games with definitions for common words, with the myriad labels for their base ideology being no exception. The dichotomy has always been between individualism and collectivism, in the case of the main label of their base ideology, the Left’s rationale is that socialism came from being ‘social’ + ism or Socialistic [as opposed to being individualist]. So it’s not beyond the bounds of reason to see them try to pull off the same linguistic legerdemain with other words that mean being nice or friendly.

Please take note of what seems to be the current take of the Left in trying to sell Socialistic Slavery to a new generation. This is the use of __________ ism – not mentioning the name of the ideology, but pushing all of it’s wonders, all paid for by money taken at gunpoint from other people.

New name suggestions.

Here are our suggestions along the lines of Leftist labeling lies, beginning with the granddaddy of them all:

Social + ism Socialism [The mouldy oldie that started it all]

Amiable + ism Amiablism

Free + ism Freeism

Friendly + ism Friendlyism

Liberation + ism Liberationism [If that sounds a lot like Liberalism, you’re catching on to the scam]

Society + ism Societism

Collective generosity (aka compulsory taxation) The collective being generous with your money – Taken at gun point

(h/t Paige)

Well, maybe those made up words won’t help since they are along the lines of made up words of the past that conveyed the same ideas that were new 5 centuries ago. So, maybe they can just bolt on a happy sounding adjective or slogan onto the existing words to help sell it with a reassuring lie that it won’t end as it always does.

Socialism – remember it’s still Democratic even if only the Politburo votes.

New and improved Socialism – now 50% gulag free.

Not your father’s Socialism – trust us, we don’t plan on having secret police or concentration camps….. unless we absolutely have to.

Voting for dollars!

Smiley face Socialism – Firing squad free, we *guarantee!
*For 30 days or 300 dissident arrests, whichever comes first. Your oppression my vary, see Marxism.org for complete details.

Progressivism – Running your life so you don’t have to.

So there you have it, our suggestions to the Left in how they can repackage their base ideology. Or perhaps the people have figured out the game. Just as changing the name doesn’t turn certain substances into something wonderful, so too is the case with socialism. There has to be a good reason that some joined the #WalkAway movement. Somehow a new term of total control over one’s life with mass murder and oppression in the background no longer appeals to anyone. Let us hope that is the case.
