Widows and Orphans

It is a clever rhetorical argument:  that we flyover-country rednecks and racists are afraid of widows and orphans.  Of course there is no objective truth behind it, but there doesn't have to be.  It effectively paints a negative picture which left-leaning Lo-Fo's are quick to embrace. 

The elitist collectivists in Washington are not interested in debating us.  They want to silence us. 

Obama is evidently terrified of white people, especially white Christian males.  Like most black men, Obama immediately goes into his false bravado, macho act when confronted with opposition of any kind from white males.  The only reason he insists on throwing open the borders to illegal immigrants and importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims -- many of whom have connections to terrorist organizations -- is because he wants to replace the white Christian population with more easily manipulated and less intimidating Islamic third-worlders.  

Is that true?  It is at least as true as Obama's assertion that we are afraid of widows and orphans.  We are slowly learning that we cannot defeat rhetoric with dialectic.  The sophists on the other side refuse to engage in logic or reality-based arguments.  Sophists are not interested in truth, only in power. 

On the one hand, I do not want to resort to this kind of low-class, illogical, feelings-based rhetoric.  On the other hand, I would like my grandchildren to know liberty and opportunity.  That's not going to happen if the collectivists have their way. Propaganda has a long history.  It is used because it works. 

There is no rational reason to allow a flood of Syrian or other Islamic refugees into this country or the nations of Europe.  It makes no sense to make France, Germany, or the United States more vulnerable to a terrorist attack.  These people are NOT "fleeing terrorism".  They are fleeing a sectarian war.  In a war between Sunni and Shia or whatever, I have no dog in the fight.  They have been killing one another for fifteen hundred years or so -- when they aren't too busy killing Christians, Jews, and other "infidels". 

I supported Bush's invasion of Iraq because I thought his intention was to teach the Islamic radicals a lesson.  I was wrong.  I am sorry.  It certainly taught me a lesson.  As bad as that turned out, Obama, Jarret, Clinton, et al, multiplied the disaster by pulling out of Iraq and supporting the "Arab Spring" in Egypt, Libya, and Syria thereby further destabilizing the region and effectively creating and arming ISIS.  Not satisfied with creating chaos in the Middle East, they want to import it to the West. 

Whatever it takes to stop this foolishness is justified.

The Word Is Invasion

There are signs here and there that people are waking up to the threat inherent in the invasion of western nations by third-worlders.  One of the reasons Trump has been doing so well is that he has made immigration the focus of much of his campaign.  Some elements in Europe -- Poland, for example, are expressing nationalistic sentiments.

The Wall Street Journal Blog reports on a press conference by Ted Cruz where the Texas Senator suggests that the general election in 2016 will turn on the issue of immigration:

At a press conference after officially registering for the New Hampshire primary, Mr. Cruz said that “millions” of Republicans will stay home in November if they believe the GOP nominee is soft on immigration, particularly working-class voters who he says would see amnesty for undocumented immigrants as a threat to their ability to find well-paying work. 
He may be right.

More than an economic issue, many of us see the invaders as a threat to our culture and traditional institutions.  Despite what the GOP Establishment says these are not people steeped in the American ideals of individualism and classical liberalism.  They are, for the most part, collectivist in their views.  

An invasion is an act of war.  We need to call these things by their proper names and denounce the traitors and collaborators -- whatever their political labels.

Mizzou Surrenders to Racists

The president of MU resigned because the feelings of some racist witchhunters were hurt about some stuff, most of which was probably made up.

The ante was upped when 32 members of the university's football team joined the hunger strike.  MU football coach, Gary Pinkel, seemed to support his players' action, saying that we are all one at Mizzou.

I am not.  I am going to burn my Mizzou headgear, and, if I can find the sheepskin they gave me, I may send it back to them. 

I am sick of coddling bullies.  These are "professional weaker brothers" (see Romans 14 and 15) who use their weakness to intimidate others and get their way about anything.  The MU president hadn't done anything.  He was one of them -- as is Pinkel, apparently.  He is being attacked and driven out as a warning to others. 

Straight white males are no longer welcome at the University of Missouri.  The campus must be made safe because black people these days are too weak and pathetic to stand up to a little ribbing and name-calling -- if that really happened, which I doubt.  Previous generations stood up to fire hoses. 

If any of the students at MU who participated in this virtual lynching happen to read my blog, I want you to know that you are ignorant, racist and fascist.

A Bomb, Really?

So the same U.S. Intelligence resources that have been used to mislead us about one thing and another for years discovers that a plane coming apart at high altitude may have been bombed.

That was my first thought when I heard the news report last week.  Even the proverbial "poorly maintained" Russian aircraft would normally have crashed.  Manpads won't take out planes at an altitude of 30,000 feet.  There was a probably a bomb on board -- just as a bomb is a much more likely cause for the mid-air explosion of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 than some spark in a fuel tank.

Sometimes the feds feel like blaming terrorists; sometimes they don't. 

At this point, my default mode is to assume I am being lied to and manipulated.

Maybe ISIS or some of their Muslim Brotherhood fellow travelers in Egypt decided to retaliate against the Russians for their intervention in Syria.  Maybe the CIA did it themselves. 

The point is that these days it is wise to be wary of any official explanations of anything.

Are They Sure They Want This Fight?

From the Gateway Pundit comes this report of a fight over a Confederate flag decal on a truck.  Hoft has posted a video of the confrontation at the link.

A couple of men had driven up to Salt Lake City to attend a Garth Brooks concert.  Clearly these are racist rednecks.  The truck they drove had a rebel flag decal on the window.  Some people found this offensive and gathered around the truck:

Leeper went to the parking lot with his friend and confronted the group. That’s when the fight turned violent.

In one fast and powerful punch, Leeper’s friend was knocked out. A scuffle ensued and Leeper was taken down by a group of six men.

“I’ll be damned if I ever come to Salt Lake again without bringing my gun,” Leeper said.
Escalation is not just for department stores.

False Dichotomies

If the only choice is between anarchy and tyranny, I would take anarchyHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the House Freedom Caucus, consisting of Tea Party-backed lawmakers, is harmful to Congress as an institution, suggesting that anarchy might work better for them.

This seems to be the age of the false dichotomy.  Politicians, pundits, and the media want to force us to choose between only two options.  Either we go along with business as usual inside the Beltway, or we live by the law of tooth and claw.  Reject the ways of Pelosi and Obama and we'll soon be resorting to cannibalism. 

The trouble is, for most of the low-information voter types and low-IQ media and entertainment figures, fallacious logic is convincing. They buy into the idea government must be all-powerful, intrusive, and despotic because otherwise we become the "Wild West" and descend into chaos.  We have to let foreigners invade our country or we are uncaring, racist, and xenophobic. They can no longer imagine the limited, relatively laissez-faire federal government that existed in this country as recently as the first half of the last century. 

The choice is not between taxpayer-funded, government-protected abortion mills and unwanted, abused children.  The choice is not between federally-controlled, massively over-funded public schools and an illiterate populace.  The choice is not between open borders and an end to all immigration.  The choice is not between no photo IDs for voting and Jim Crow laws.  The choice is not between a defenseless United States and an interventionist foreign policy.  The choice is not between a fascist economy and a socialist economy -- not that that is much of a choice anyway.  The choice is not between Democrat personal welfare and Republican corporate welfare. 

The choice isn't between Democrats and Republicans.  Normally, there are a lot of choices and options in life.  There are solutions to our current problems that stop short of apocalyptic scenarios.  One of the worst things about Obama is exactly this penchant he has for creating strawmen and false dichotomies.  Either we do it his way or we are horrible, terrible, ignorant, intolerant racist bitter clingers.  This from an SOB who isn't even the smartest guy in the room when he's alone taking a crap.
