Who is Guy DeWhitney? What is The Heretics Crusade?

It has been just over a year since I started this blog.  Despite numerous distractions and diversion it has been a good year for the blog, if not for our sadly Post-Enlightenment PC culture.  I take this opportunity to repost an updated version of my second post explaining why I had begun a project like Heretics Crusade.

cRUSADE

Why start this blog now? Aren’t there enough "they’re out to get us" blogs? Yes, there are too many RADICAL blogs on the Left AND Right. It is time to let the Moderate Majority have their say.

Despite what it might look like in these times, the focus of this blog is NOT Muslims. It is  focused on exposing and answering ALL serious efforts at instilling totalitarian controls onto free Western society.

In school Thomas Jefferson was my greatest American Hero. My opinion has not changed on that in over 30 years.  Beginning with the Phoenicians, then three waves of Greeks, The Etruscans, the Romans, the Celts, The Gauls, etc., etc., etc., migration after migration of peoples left the Far East.

They Left behind a land where the Whole is more important than the parts, to found nations where the individual and his or her contribution to society would matter. Greece, Rome, England, America a great rolling progression of Enlightenment values growing and evolving toward a bright future where every is able to have peace and safety and above all, a voice.

I sit here writing in Southern California, at the peak of the Western Wave. I feel the momentum and legacy of the millions behind me who sweated and bled and died to put me here. It is my responsibility to do all I can to see that their legacy does not fail. That the barbarians never again "sack Rome" allowing the advent of another dark age.

For long in the 80’s I found myself concerned with keeping an eye on, and talking about, radical Christian efforts in this country to edge our culture into a theocracy. While this movement seems to have peaked a year or so before the end of the reign of Bush II there are still folks dedicated to putting God in the classroom, creationism in our books and demonizing gays and abortion.

Currently the project near and dear to their hearts that concerns me the most is efforts by conservative Christian organizations to co opt the Air Force as a proselytizing force. Needless to say I do not view this objective lightly.

I also watched with some worry activities by the Soviet Union and China. Then, the Soviets collapsed, and it seemed that the only thing to seriously worry about besides our few fanatics was the possibility of China becoming aggressively expansionist (not a likely event).

Sept 11th 2001 changed that. Like just about everyone else I was somewhat aware that the "Muslim World" was something less than civilized to my jaded California standards but figured that as long as they didn’t poop in my backyard I had no reason to spy into theirs. Then the thousand Great Dane sized load of FU landed in New York, D.C. and Penn.  and I thought that maybe it was time to look into this Islam thing.

In exploring the information available it took a long time to vet the sources before I could trust them. A large obstacle to this was that fact that, like Soviet Communism, the people who first saw things as they were came from the far right of the political spectrum. Just as McCarthy was totally wrong in how he dealt with things, he was totally right about the extent of Soviet infiltration in the government, and Hollywood. We find today a number of unsavory voices shouting to the rooftops a message the basics of which everyone should hear does more to make people constructively deaf than convert them to reality. People look at who is talking, and ask why they should listen to such voices on THIS subject.

For the record, the pillars of civilization that I regard as inviolable are: Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, equal treatment before the law of everyone; men and women, regardless of race, creed or sexuality. I support the right to bear arms, and have served with pride in the armed forces of my nation but, I oppose the very concept of a "draft". I feel that any nation that cannot fight it’s battles with a volunteer army has no right to fight them. And this includes wars of defense.

I support the right to abortion but, cannot support late term abortion in any but blatantly cut and dired cases, which I have yet to EVER hear of.

In general I regard myself as a leftish moderate who is not afraid of guns. Anyone who tries to peg me into a political category from one or two opinions is almost certain to be wrong. In fact I refuse to identify with any party since a party is nothing more than a slate of opinions pre-packaged to avoid a voter’s having to take on that horrible job: thought.

In the course of this blog I will be posting articles and videos of all sorts that highlight both the fight of totalitarians to blind and enslave us, as well as the efforts of those who will not be bound or controlled to keep the West free in mind and soul.

And yes Virginia, I EXPECT to get attacked from the partisans on BOTH sides.  All I have to say is; AVANT Crusader, AVANT!

Why are Conservatives are just plain BORING?

There is a debate in the internet land of Punditia about just what is the “counterculture” and why do Leftists dominate it.  The conservative side is pretty well summed up by this quote from one Samuel, a commenter at NewsReal Blog: 

 “A Conservative, be s/he a Christian Conservative, Deist Conservative or an Atheist Conservative, all live by fundamental principles. At the top of the list would be, that individual freedom is unlimited under the level that it remains below the infringement of others freedom.” 

What so many Conservatives don’t seem to get, is that the counter culturist types describe themselves essentially the same way!!! They seek to maximize  individual freedoms that do not infringe upon other’s freedoms. 

Isn’t that JUST what most (non-politically active) people of a counter culture bent are all about? They are drawn Left simply because there they have more opportunity to express their creativity, whether it is art, music or writing. 

Why must pundits and leaders on the Right and Left equate artistic creativity with POLITICAL movements that seek to REMOVE traditional elements from society rather than make SOME of them more optional? Things like how you dress or what you can do for a living as a man or woman or minority, and what kind of art you can produce. 

It is the FAULT of the Conservatives as well as the progressives if Leftists dominate the creative world! Conservatism is a FACET of thought, not a religion that needs to be kept pure and un-tainted. 

The political progressives seek to change entire societal systems to THEIR model; not just allow more elbow room for expression and differences in style and tone; they seek to LIMIT other’s ability to express themselves, JUST LIKE THE CONSERVATIVE EXTREMISTS. 

Why else does David Horowitz so often make the point that he is a CLASSIC LIBERAL, not a classic Conservative?!? 

A pure Leftist or pure Conservative cannot form a healthy government. NEITHER ONE! 

Just look at one of history’s examples of a truly conservative group: The Catholic Church. 

Just when in the history of the Church can it be said that there were no Liberal influences moderating the harshness of the Conservative ones? Are those times you would want to live in? As I read history the less influence classic Liberal thought had the more corruption and evil the Church did to the societies it held under its authority. 

Can progressive expression of Liberal ideas go too far in shedding traditions? Of course they can, just like Conservative ideas can go too far when unmediated by LIBERAL thought. 

On the Left we have seen the brutality of the Protestants against Catholics in the wars of religion, the horrific acts by Communist inspired groups abetted by modern technology in the 20th, and The Terror after the French Revolution. On the Right we have the Spanish Inquisition and that whole mentality which extended all across Europe at one time or another including Conservative Catholic family outings like the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre. Arguments can be made that Nazi Germany had elements of BOTH Left and Right; explain THAT one in black and white partisan terms if you can!!! 

The accident of history that gave the Nazis, Japanese and Communists modern weaponry and transportation to abet their crimes does not in any way alleviate the intimate similarities between Right extremists and Left extremists; it is hypocritical to claim that as an excuse to not be critical of your “allies’s” actions. 

The simple truth is that pure conservatism is not just boring, it is stagnant. The most purely conservative group in American history that I can think of off hand were the Puritans. Does anyone on the political Right really WANT to live in a society like that? Is that really your goal? Do not forget, to protect their “Godly” society these wonderful CONSERVATIVES had no trouble hanging a couple sisters for the crime of being Quaker. They also drove one preacher right out of their colony for the truly heinous crime of insisting that a forced faith was not true faith! If the colonies had not united in the U.S. how far do you think they would have gone? Are you all unaware that it was this very Conservative extremism that prompted the majority of colonies to endorse the whole freedom of religion ideal? 

IS. THIS. REALLY. WHAT. YOU. WANT? Is THAT the America that those Liberal bastards Franklin and Paine and Jefferson and yes, even Washington wanted? 

Frankly, one of the biggest reasons it is so hard for many moderates to embrace their Conservative side publically is just how BORING most True Blue Republicans are! Why do you think Huckabee got so much attention? He actually had NUANCE to his lifestyle. 

It may come as a surprise to a lot of culturaly isolated Conservatives but, the majority of people are not content with re-runs of I Love Lucy and a stack of Frank Sinatra records. 

Heck, if you eliminated all art produced by those Limbaugh woukd CALL “Leftist” and that produced by “active” homosexuals and “drug” users, just WHAT would you have left? 

No: 

Dickens, Twain, Melville, Shakepeare, Dumas, Wilde, Elvis, Judy Garland, Ella, Billie Holiday, oh, why bother with a list; almost ALL literature, music, art, plays, blah, blah, blah, is produced by those that the True Blue Conservative ™ would ELIMINATE FROM PARTICIPATION in society!!! 

The fact that LEFTISTS in total control would destroy the balance of society just as surely does NOT excuse the partisanship of the Right. 

It comes as a constant surpise to me that people actually try to defend the idea of eliminating the influence of Liberals(or Conservatives) from politics. Can anyone truly be that ignorant, to believe that that “victory” would end up in anything but a horrific tyranny of one sort or another? 

The label of Conservative is not a shield against immorality or abuse of power, nor is Progressive. Deal with it folks! 

Oh, and while I am on a rant, if Conservative Principals are what Republicans say they are, WHO are these people who are registered as Republicans and call themselves Christians who do not seem to GET the whole free speech and freedom of religion thing, not to mention the whole “if you allow one religion to use a public platform ALL must be allowed” thing that the Supreme Court has been so adamant about? 

It seems to ME, a MODERATE, that BOTH side’s partisans just love to supress others when they get a chance. Free speech for me but not for thee. 

Whether you call yourself Democrat or Republican, THAT ISNT ABOUT FREEDOM AND THAT ISN”T WHAT AMERICA’S CONSTITUTION IS ABOUT! 

(Pure Leftist Mind) “Things are not the way we THINK they should be so, we must tear down everything to make it as it should be. Those who stand in the way fully support ALL evil, real and imagined, done by the current system. We are not responsible for ANY evil commited in this noble pursuit.” 

(Pure Conservative Mind)”It Ain’t the way Daddy did it so it ain’t the way I gonna do it! It must be immoral and against God; it aint’ NATURAL! IT is a slippery slope. Those who seek ANY changes fully support ALL evil Our Party must not be charged with any evil commited by the status quo.” 

Get riled if you want, but that is JUST what most Conservative arguments against change come down to! 

This attitude has saturated the Conservative stance in debates ranging from slavery to child labor, women’s votes, black votes, EVERY new form of music and ALL new styles of dress and undress. 

The Leftist attitude has successfully co-opted much of the “Liberal” world due to the Conservatives opposing ANY creative changes to society, no matter WHAT the motivation for them may be. 

Is there a single creative change that can be listed that did NOT receive immediate opposition from the “Conservative” elements of society? 

It is not often that you get a “Liberal” change that does not find support even in the bastions of Conservatism. (Abolition, child labor, minority religious rights, minority racial rights, etc. etc. ad nauseum), and the truly immoral and heinous ideals, like NAMBLA’s agenda, unites Conservatives with people across the spectrum in defense of, not tradition, but life, children and the things that matter to a harmonious society. 

Counter culture is nothing more or less than a label for CREATIVE people who seek to express themselves in ways not allowed by the straight-jacket of strict Conservatism. 

At certain times politics can intertwine with these people but, do not forget that Leftists are just as authoritarian and CONSERVATIVE about THEIR principals as “real” Conservatives” are and usualy wll offend the most creative after a while. 

How do you tell the difference from the inside between a strict Stalinist society and a strict “conservative” one in terms of how the freedom of the individual and their families differ? 

Look at a “proper” Puritan household and see how they self edit and apply double-think, and are IN NO WAY SIGNIFICANTLY different from the 1950’s Russian family watching every word and action lest they “sin” and bring down the punishment of God (The State)

One extreme wants to tear down the Constitution and replace it with Marx, the other side wants to tear down the Constitution and replace it with THEIR interpretation of what the Bible says.

Neither side should be allowed to run a society alone without adult supervision.

Religious Organization Dedicated to Subversion Invades America

Since 9/11 most Americans have become aware that there are forces in the world that do not share our love of Freedom and Constitutional Democracy. More and more of us have remembered that it is our duty as Americans to remain vigilant against all who would take from us that which makes us unique in the world: The Constitution.

Recently it has come to my attention that there is a group operating in the U.S. that has openly advocated the legislative overthrow of the U.S. Constitution and our way of life.

Furthermore, this un-American organization is openly hostile to modern Western laws regarding women, children and gays. They freely declare their distrust and fear of anyone who does not follow their narrow faith.

In full view of the media they mock the concept of Republican Democracy. Anywhere their allies attain a voting majority they are constantly agitating to impose their own strict religious laws on the local public.

They hypocritically exhort their followers to use the First Amendment to force their views into the schools and workplace. They also teach them how to use the Establishment Clause to keep information about all other religions (including atheism) out.

This group and their allies have gone to court to force schools to allow them to spread their divisive (religious) messages in public schools via a “backpack-mail” system. But when a non-aligned group used the same system they turned around and used the courts to stop the schools from spreading any non-curricular information regardless of its being religious or secular.

This is hardly fair play! It seems that it was more important to this group and its allies to be able to censor other points of view than to spread their own. Since they held a majority in that community they still won out.

As with many subversive organizations their public messages tend toward the bland and reassuring. Only an occasional “WHAT did he say?” reaches the radar of the average American.

But the deeper you go into the bowels of their organization the more blatant is the hatred of all that America stands for. It is no secret that their leadership prays for a day when the only laws in America will be based solely in their scripture.

They not only pray for it. They organize. Likeminded groups have taken up the task of training their more fanatical followers around the country in the craft of taking over local schools and governments in the name of the faith.

They teach followers how to mask their agenda until elected. Once elected the faithful are then apply to their religious agenda regardless of the will of the voters. Their intent is to remake America in their image one town and county at a time.

Their totalitarian ideology does not brook any dissent. The questioning of their religious leader’s interpretations of their holy book is seen as the voice of Satan (Shaytan). More so if the criticism comes from outside their religion. In the U.S. their followers rarely resort to violence but are willing to use almost any tactic short of that to demonize and suppress their critics.

Their Anti-American dream for the U.S. includes:

Women would be coerced by the law to focus their lives on home and children instead of seeking careers.

Women would not be allowed to have a voice in religious or political matters as a matter of law.

Men would be legally empowered to speak for their wives in all matters outside the home.

The decision whether to abort a pregnancy sure to kill the mother (such as a woman with cancer who must choose between an abortion or deferring treatment until after the birth) would rest with the father of the child or father of the mother.

Children and women would have no legal protections outside of the religious institutions. Short of situations manifestly life-threatening no outside agency would have the right to forcibly intervene in any abuse situations within the family. The right of the husband/father to control his family’s “morals” and live out his religion’s requirements would trump any Western concept of “human rights” for his family.

Homosexuality would be outlawed, not just as an active lifestyle. It would be legally a perverted mindset to be policed and punished. Punishments would likely range from imprisonment to castration to the death penalty. Mob justice against homosexuals would mostly be ignored if not condoned.

The freedom of worship of anyone not aligned with their religion’s narrow definition of “godly” would be at risk anywhere they hold influence.

The Bible tells Christians to “judge them by their fruit”. The fruit of this group wherever they hold influence has been divisiveness, intolerance, a smug support of the status quo and the suppression of the greatest ideals of our Founding Fathers: Freedom of Speech/Assembly/The Press and Freedom of Religion.

One of the clearest signs of the hypocrisy of their version of “faith” is that at the same time they are condemning all sex education, adultery and sex before marriage their followers have the highest rates of teen pregnancies and divorces in the nation. Their followers also possess a higher than average rate of domestic violence.

Who are these un-American subversives you ask? What is the nefarious name that these pretend prophets of “holiness” use to organize their subversive minions as they subvert our nation?

“Islamists? You ask. “Scientologists? Mormons? Pagans?” You postulate but miss the rot that lies in front of your nose.

Surprise Virginia, they call themselves the 700 Club.

Big Game Hunters Guide to Conservatives and Liberals.

When venturing out into the hostile wilderness of politics seeking a prize for your mantle it is good to know as much as possible about your game.

Conservatives are elusive game. The problem is that they come in three different types. Quite distinct and with different values as trophies.

The first type of conservative to be found on the veldts of D.C. is known as the Business Conservative. The only thing conservative about this creature is it’s suit and home life. Essentially these beasts are of the jackal family existing only to prey on the weak and the old. Much of government regulation is made to deal with the rampages of these beasts. They are hard to winnow out though from other stripes of Conservative as they take on protective coloring to hide their bloodthirsty tendencies. The most notable of this degenerate breed is known as Bernie Madoff.

The Business Conservative is a dragline to progress wherever he or she, is found. On the other hand the very excesses of this breed of scavengers has provoked many laws dealing with things as diverse as child labor and general workplace safety.

Another breed of Conservative is known as the Jesus Freak. This one is also hard to identify with certainty as the B.C. most often disguises himself as one. A number of True Conservatives also can be mistaken for this breed at first glance but will show its true colors with study.

The true Jesus Freak is essentially a theocracy believing heretic of the Christian religion. Their supposed savior and teacher Jesus taught in unequivocal terms several lessons that these critters chose to ignore while striving to create a heretical government in His very name.

The first of these lessons is that prayer in public, especially for a SOCIAL purpose is anathema. The only true prayer to God according to their prophet is in private and just between the Christian and God. He goes on to disapprove the person who prays in order to be SEEN to pray, for social status . Yet we find that “pious” public prayer by individuals and groups is the hallmark of the J.F.!

The Teacher the J.F’s claim also taught that his followers were not supposed to seek a civil government based on His teachings. They were to hold their relationship with God in their hearts, not base the machinery of government on it. This too the J.F. ignores blithely. Many believe the J.F.s to be degenerate Christians while others feel they are more like the B.C.s, a wholly alien breed hiding amongst the real Christians.

The last main species of Conservative is what we choose to all the True Conservative. This is a self reliant individual who has no more desire to interfere with others private affairs than they desire others to interfere in their own. The often are Christian or Jewish but need not be religious at all to follow their herd. In fact they do not tend to homogenous herds but are salted amongst the other breeds of Conservative and even in non-Conservative herding grounds. They tend to be generous but slow to true friendship. Once made however this connection will bear great strain. The True Conservative can be your best friend in times of trouble and won’t trouble you in good times.

The T.C. is a hardy breed that will often be found on the frontiers of society hewing a new path of their own in the wilderness unlike the other two who tend to huddle and herd in “safe” zones that do not challenge their assumptions.

Interestingly this huddling tendency is shared by some of the Liberal breeds as well.
The Liberal herds are much more amorphous compared to the Conservatives. They exist as more of a spectrum than a set of sub breeds. At the far right of this spectrum the Liberal blends imperceptibly into the Moderates and causes few problems. Indeed the Middle Left part of the Liberal herd has been responsible for most of the social “progress” the whole Human race has made.

From the middle of the Liberal herd to the very Left fringes however an strange disorder overtakes the herd. A disorder that is ultimately not usually fatal but always debilitating to not only the Liberal breeds but any others living in close proximity.

This disorder shows itself as a form of self hatred directed at the entire herd in reverse proportion to the herd’s own progress with the disorder. The most infected parts are not attacked at all while non-infected Liberals can be viciously mauled even worse than would a non-Liberal who wandered into their grounds.

The mindset of the Leftmost Liberals is a hard thing for an outsider to distinguish from a J.F.. Both breeds have an overwhelming desire to take their fantasies and impose them as law on all other breeds in the land and will mutilate and maul any who disagree with their “Truth” while claiming the highest moral ground. Both the L.L. and the J.F. seek a totalitarian, essentially fascist society that conforms to their ideal of a “Proper society”. Woe betide any who stand in the way of these subherds when they are on the move.

Please take note that this article only refers to the American breeds. Elsewhere the main breeds also exist but the J.F. can take a number of different forms based on different religions, some of which make the most vicious North American J.F. look like a tame kitten.

Please remember that the T.C. is currently on the endangered list and protected. Also, the law allows you to tag, photograph and release but culling the herds is something we must leave to natural processes.
