UPDATED (2/28): GOP Has The Babes. Nothing More! The Future Belongs To Prouder Boys & Girls

Conservatism, Donald Trump, Elections, Founding Fathers, Politics, Populism, Republicans

On a frivolous note, Kristi Noem’s a pretty woman, but why the Michelle Obama arms? Too awful. All that manly weight-lifting and working out arms a woman with a man’s arms and a ropy neck, too.

On a serious note, the dull, dumb lineup at CPUKE—namely the establishment-approved stars of the GOP—only drives home that Trump alone provides any excitement (and impetus when Ivanka leaves him alone) in the moribund Republican Party. (Where in this lineup is flamethrower Marjorie Taylor Greene?)

Besides which, remember this: With control of both Chambers, the presidency and the gubernatorial scene across the country—Republicans delivered nothing much for ordinary Americans.

Time to quit buying the fiction that all you need do to have relief is vote Republican. Nonsense on stilts!

So, GOP, RIP.

The future of The Struggle belongs to men and women who speak like this:

When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.

Most recently, the man to channel Thomas Jefferson—for this piercing and beautiful aphorism belongs to said Founding Father—was Proud Boy leader Enrique Tarrio.

The man echoed the sentiments yours truly articulated more carefully on 01/21/2021, in “A Hardcore Libertarian Take On The Storming Of The Capitol Building.

“I’m not gonna cry about people who don’t give a crap about their constituents. I’m not going to sympathize with them,” he continued. “When they support drone-bombing children in the Middle East … [and] those people are dead and they’re just cowering because a group of misfits came into the Capitol, I’m not going to be sympathetic.”

UPDATE (2/28):

From LinkedIn:

Immutable truth: “With control of both Chambers, the presidency and the gubernatorial scene across the country—Republicans delivered nothing much for ordinary Americans.” Time to quit buying the fiction that all you need do to have relief is vote Republican. Nonsense on stilts!
So, GOP, RIP.”
Time to secede–dissociate from the dual-party game conducted for the benefits of Rome on the Potomac. Build self-determining societies of like-minded; seceded from politics.

UPDATED (2/7/020): If Only American Jews Didn’t Forget Just How American They Are

Unlike Muslims, Jews truly were in America during the founding. The proper metaphor for the relationship between Judaism and Christianity, America’s founding faith, is that of parent and progeny. Yet, self-anointed Jewish leadership has managed to cast Jews as a mere faction among the American, multicultural noise machine, a position lefty Jews relish.

Why? And how dumb.

Just how old and established is the American Jewish community?

Sephardic Jews settled in the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam (later New York) in 1654.

Mordecai Sheftall, a hero of the American Revolution, was descended from the British Jews who had settled in Georgia in 1733. Sheftall was “the highest ranking Jewish officer of the Colonial forces.”

To the Jews of America, George Washington promised peace and goodwill in a 1790 address to a synagogue congregation in Newport, Rhode Island.

Northern Jews took part in the tax-on-tea protests, while their Southern brethren joined them in opposing colonial mercantilism. Three thousand Jewish men fought in grey uniforms for the Confederacy. Why, Jews even had a Confederate colonel, Abraham Charles Myers.

UPDATED (2/7/020): Indeed, as Luigi advises, let us not forget Judah Benjamin.

Judah P. Benjamin was Secretary of State for the Confederacy. Southern Jews fought with great valor against Lincoln’s einsatzgruppen.

Amanda Gorman, National Youth Poet Laureate, Is Okay

America, Art, English, Founding Fathers, History, Literature

She’s intelligent and verbal, seems deeply—and unusually—attached to America’s Founders, the founding, and the founding documents; does not come across in the least as radical or resentful, and is certainly not in the mold of the New Democrats:

She is Amanda Gorman, national youth poet laureate, who recited her rather pleasant poetry at the Biden inaugural.

Here she is elsewhere:

NEW COLUMN: A Christmas Story Before Nerf Guns Became a No-No

NEW COLUMN, “A Christmas Story Before Nerf Guns Became a No-No,” is on American Greatness.

An excerpt:

Described by a critic as “one of those rare movies you can say is perfect in every way,” “A Christmas Story,” directed by Bob Clark, debuted in 1983. Set in the 1940s, the film depicts a series of family vignettes through the eyes of 9-year-old Ralphie Parker, who yearns for that gift of all gifts: The Daisy Red Ryder BB gun.

This was boyhood before the Nerf gun and “bang-bang you’re dead” were banned; family life prior to “One Dad Two Dads Brown Dad Blue Dads,” and Christmas before Saint Nicholas was denounced for his whiteness, and “Merry Christmas” condemned for its exclusiveness.

If children could choose the family into which they were born, most would opt for the kind depicted in “A Christmas Story,” where mom is a happy homemaker, dad a devoted working stiff, and between them, they have zero repertoire of progressive psychobabble to rub together.

Although clearly adored, Ralphie is not encouraged to share his feelings at every turn. Nor is he, in the spirit of gender-neutral parenting, circa 2020, urged to act out like a girl if he’s feeling … girlie.

Instead, Ralphie is taught restraint and self-control. And horrors: The little boy even has his mouth washed out with soap and water for uttering the “F” expletive. “My personal preference was for Lux,” reveals Ralphie, “but I found Palmolive had a nice piquant, after-dinner flavor—heady but with just a touch of mellow smoothness.” Ralphie is, of course, guilt-tripped with stories about starving Biafrans when he refuses to finish his food.

The parenting practiced so successfully by Mr. and Mrs. Parker fails every progressive commandment. By today’s standards, the delightful, un-precocious protagonist of “A Christmas Story” would be doomed to a lifetime on the therapist’s chaise lounge—and certainly to daily doses of Ritalin …
