Yesterday was Veteran’s Day and I’m mad as hell

Published

on

It’s difficult to type, my vision blurred by welled up tears. I am internally grappling with an unanticipated soup of emotions, boiling and bubbling, bubbling and boiling: I am infuriated, I am flabbergasted, I am frustrated, embittered, and bereaved.

I loathe.

I weep.

I type.

Flashback to 1972

TiltonHe had been sitting alone, fingers trembling as he reached forward to press record, a deep ache in his throat. What do you say to you wife… to your two little daughters… The chaplain had just left the room. You need to record a final message to your family.

The memory of that conversation with the chaplain, still so fresh, flashed through his mind as he wiped the saliva from his cheek and his eyes. “Baby killer!” she screamed at him, her face contorted in hate and revilement. “Baby killer!” she hollered in disgust just before spitting in his face once more. In uniform, he had been spotted by a radical leftist, roughly 15 years of age, while he was walking through the Los Angeles airport on his way home, returning to his family after years of service in the Vietnam War. “Baby Killer!” she hissed, spitting in his face in a state of agitation like that of a rabid beast, eyes filled with madness.

What was it that had elicited such hatred from an American teenager? What had fueled a rage so powerful that it had driven this young woman to accost a uniformed member of the US Air Force, to accost my dad? The simple answer: lies, treasonous lies.

The liars of yesterday: the AmeriCong

Sadly, many Vietnam veterans experienced this type of vile assault. Other experienced much worse: including mob attacks right here on American soil. The viciousness of those belonging to the anti-America cult during the Vietnam War was born out of lies and propaganda, orchestrated by leaders in Hanoi and put into action right here in the American homeland.

“Hey, Hey, LBJ. How many kids did you kill today?”

  • Antiwar slogan/chant

The treasonous liars, like pied pipers of the ignorant masses, hollered such untruths as, America is imperialist and fascist! America’s troops are drug addicts and murderers; baby killers, every one of them! America isn’t fighting for the freedom of the South Vietnamese: America’s corporate, capitalist system and its interests are an evil, occupying force, bent on the oppression of the marginalized Vietnamese people! The National Liberation Front forces are merely freedom fighters working to secure liberty from the evil, imperialist Americans; they fight for democracy! Persistently they rallied, and they hollered, and they lied through their teeth, and, sometimes, they threw bombs.

“The spontaneous antiwar movements in the US have received assistance and guidance from the friendly [Viet Cong/North Vietnam] delegations at the Paris Peace Talks…. The PCPJ [People’s Committee [sic] for Peace and Justice]…maintains relations with us…”

-from the Viet Cong’s Circular No. 33/VP/TD.

Busy RebelThese AmeriCong (now assisted by sympathetic “historians”) routinely denied their frequent dealings with the top brass of North Vietnam (Zaroulis, Who Spoke Up, xii; Tom Wells, The War Within, 211).  Yet, during the war, the “peace” lovers were often seen publically wearing rings, necklaces, and medals given as gifts from a grateful North Vietnamese government, often made from US airplanes shot down in the war. The infamous Bill Ayers has fondly recalled being given a ring at a Toronto conference sponsored by Women’s Strike for Peace (WSP). On the inside of the ring was inscribed, “500,” to commemorate the 500th US plane shot down (Bill Ayers, Fugitive Days, Penguin Books, 2001, 74).  Featured on the cover of Life Magazine (April 23, 1971) was Jane Fonda (“Hanoi Jane”) wearing her own necklace made from America’s downed aircrafts (Canfield, Comrades in Arms). As the daughter of a USAF pilot of the Vietnam War, I am disgusted, sickened, horrified.

In a speech given at a Congressional seminar in 1985, former leftist radical (aka communist), David Horowitz, stated, “Let me make this perfectly clear. Those of us who inspired the antiwar movement did not want just to stop the killing, as so many veterans of those battles now claim. We wanted the Communists to win. It is true that some of may have said we only wanted the United States to get out of Vietnam, but we understood that meant the Communists would win. ‘Bring the troops home’ was out slogan; the fall of Saigon was the result.”

The liars of today: Kaepernick and the NFL

In the same speech, Horowitz described the hypocrisy which characterized the minds of the Vietnam era communist activists in America, explaining that “…activists had a double standard when it came to making moral and political judgements. We judged other countries and political movements – meaning socialist and revolutionary movements – by the futures we imagined they could have if only the United States and its allies would get out of their way. We judged America, on the other hand, by its actual performance, which we held up to a standard of high and even impossible ideals. Of course, if we had been able to look at the facts we would have seen that America was more tolerant, more democratic, and more open to change than the countries and the movements to whom we gave support. But we were unable to do that. We were, in the then-fashionable tern, ‘alienated’ from what was near to us, unable to judge it objectively.”

Horowitz then went on to describe his personal awakening, his sudden awareness that America was not the oppressive monster which he had long envisioned. “As our opposition to the war grew more violent and our prophesies of impending fascism grew more intense, I took note of how we were actually being treated by the system we condemned. By the decade’s end we had deliberately crossed the line of legitimate dissent and abused every First Amendment privilege and right reserved to us as Americans. While American boys were dying overseas, we spat on the flag, broke the law, denigrated and disrupted institutions of government and education, gave comfort and aid, even revealing classified secrets, to the enemy. Some of us, like Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda, provided a protective propaganda shield for Hanoi’s Communist regime while it tortured American war-prisoners; others engaged in violent sabotage against the war effort. All the time I thought to myself: If we did this in any other country, the very least of our punishments would be long prison terms and the pariah status of traitors. In any of the socialist countries we supported – from Cuba to North Vietnam – we would spend most of our lives in jail and, more probably, be shot.” Instead, the capitalist, repressive, evil, imperialist America only handed out slaps on the wrists, here and there. Some activists did do some time in jail, “but basically the country tolerated” them.

So, is it just me or does old propaganda die hard?

Today, with the help of educational indoctrination, we have historical imbeciles like Colin Kaepernick moaning on and on about America’s “oppression” of “marginalized” people, wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the faces of dead socialist murderers such as Che Guevara and Fidel Castro – a flabbergasting act of moral and political hypocrisy – and blurting out lie after lie about “systemic racism” and “bodies in the streets.” With a straight face, Kaepernick blabbers away about America’s repressive “system,” simultaneously exulting Cuba’s equality, or claiming Ghana, a known abuser of human rights, to be his true “home.”

“How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs? To find my independence I went home.”

-Colin Kaepernick calling Ghana his home on America’s Independence Day, 2017

It has become ever apparent that far too many childish ninnies play professional football. Evidently, the are equally as skilled at playing “Follow the Leader” as they are on the football field. The kneeling trend had become a ritualistic alternative to chanting for the anti-America cult. Although the kneelers themselves are swimming in money and fame, the thirst of their egos remains unquenched. These kneeling players have chosen a collective lie: This isn’t about the flag. This isn’t about the anthem. This isn’t about Veterans. We are kneeling for social justice. We are kneeling against inequality.

Oh, please! Give me a break!

The fact of the matter is that this herd of man-children – radical shepherds in cleats and their foolishly egotistical sheep, I mean, teammates – have shown zero concern for the ways in which their actions affect others, hurts others. Yes – kneeling hurts others, especially veterans and families of veterans, and it hurts America as a whole. When it comes to the matter of kneeling, “because they can” does not mean that “they should.”

Yes, I am mad as hell!

Yes! I am mad as hell, because the real tragedy is that, just like the Hollywood radicals of the “antiwar” movement, NFL players have tremendous influence over society. The attitudes and actions of players like Kaepernick who are so woefully unable to appreciate the bounty of this great country, have spread into a vast swath of the citizenry, too ignorant to know better. The virulent resentment, hate and victimhood has now become enmeshed in the minds of Americans from coast to coast. The socialist ideals that Kaepernick so foolishly espouses, ideals that have caused millions upon millions of deaths worldwide, has reached endemic proportions among significant segments of America. When a society has lost its gratitude, it has lost its empathy and its ability to reason as well.

“On this Veterans Day, the mistreatment of American troops remains a red line that few dare to cross. But with every new protest, it seems that line gets a little less clear.”

-US Army Officer Jeremy C. Hunt, November 10, 2017

Yes! I am mad as hell, because I am spending my first Veteran’s Day without my father, without my veteran, while watching padded chumps denigrate the country that my dad was willing to die for. Through my sadness in missing my dad, I am watching an influential group of millionaire meatheads peddle Marxian lies and push the same socialist ideals my father was willing to give his life to defeat. I am watching levels of ingratitude that I never imagined possible.

Yes! I am mad as hell, because – worst of all – I am watching today’s enlisted veterans begin to worry that, soon, the vicious treatment toward the veterans of the Vietnam War will become their own reality. I am watching veterans wonder whether it will soon become too dangerousfor them to wear their uniforms in public. This is a problem, folks.

So, yes, I am mad as hell.

Bill de Blasio and CAIR: A tour de force against Christianity

Bill de Blasio and CAIR A tour de force against Christianity

For all the talk the progressives say about the evils of religion, they will not just speak out against Islam.  As NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio shows us, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.  So the friendly rivalry between American Progressives and CAIR shall continue in the foreseeable future.

Face it, the real war is against Jesus Christ, and his father the True God.  The God of Abraham.

Terror-linked CAIR & NYC’s Bill de Blasio team up for ‘social justice’

CAIR was founded in 1994 by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, with the goal of creating a support network in the United States for the Palestinian Hamas terrorist organization. Its current leader, Nihad Awad, has publicly endorsed Hamas. In 2014, the United Arab Emirates labeled CAIR a terrorist organization.

Church of England joins LGBT forces in the culture war and children are the casualties

Published

Church of England

Did you hear about the new set of directives released by the Church of England for schools and teachers concerning gender and gender identity?

In honor of anti-bullying week, the Church of England released an updated version of a 2014 instructional entitled “Valuing All God’s Children.” This new set of rules instructs against so-called homophobia, bi-phobia, and trans-phobia in nursery schools and primary schools.

According to church leadership, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and elementary students should be encouraged to discover their gender identity uninhibited as they “explore the possibilities of who they might be.” Specifically, children are to be taught not to “conform” to traditional male/female “stereotypes.”

Schools must “avoid labels and assumptions which deem children’s behavior irregular, abnormal or problematic just because it does not conform to gender stereotypes … Childhood has a sacred place for creative self-imagining.”

Practically speaking, the guidelines will encourage boys to wear tutus and princess tiaras while encouraging girls to wear tool belts and super hero cloaks in order to help them determine who they might be without “judgement and derision.”

While it’s tempting to dismiss this as England’s problem, the Strident Conservative has documented how the LGBT community and its declared war on Christianity and American culture has already launched similar assaults on children in America’s public schools.

Unfortunately, in America, the Rainbow Jihad has the full support of the government all the way up to the White House.

For example, Barack Obama hosted an event in April, 2016 at the White House aimed at “breaking down gender stereotypes in media and toys.” Much like the Church of England, Obama—with support from Katie Couric, the founder of the gender-neutral start-up Little Bits—promoted the idea that gender is irrelevant and that children should be free to be who they are “without limits.”

While Valerie Jarrett organized the event under the banner of promoting opportunities for girls, Obama’s track record on transgender issues made the affair very LGBT friendly.

And we shouldn’t get comfortable now that Obama is no longer president. Donald Trump—who embraced the LGBT movement at the Republican National Convention in his acceptance speech—announced back in June that his administration would prosecute schools that failed to embrace the LGBT lie concerning transgenderism.

The LGBT culture war is not just an American war. It’s a world war, and as usual, children are the casualties.
