The Partisan Destruction of America

UPDATED!

Guy DeWhitney at Heretics Crusade says democrat and republican partisan politics do not serve the people or the united states

I won’t try to pretend that when I was a child growing up in the 60’s and 70’s that I understood everything that was happening on my family’s TV screen.  But some  things were obvious as far back as I can remember.  I did not need to be told that the words and actions of many Southern whites were wrong, I could see that they were being mean.

To a child, nice people are nice,and bad people are bad, it is that simple.  I liked the Flower Power movement because they were nice.  I did not like the people who were angry and making other people upset and afraid (Ranting Righties and violent Lefties).  I always had this stubborn opinion that the one who started the fight were probably the bad guys.

My folks were conservative, but never discussed “grown up” stuff in front of my sister and I.  Somethings they did  speak out; about landing on the Moon, Munich, Apollo 13, raised fists at the Olympics.

I remember all of those, and my reactions even then were pretty much the same as now; Wow, ASSHOLES, why the negative message.

In the 70’s I never liked the Black Panthers, their anger and hatred and violence made me dislike them as much as I was drawn to the words of Martin Luther King.

I did like the way the fun stuff from the 60’s was being incorporated into daily culture (a la The 70’s Show).

The Nixon scandal was another case of the mean showing themselves to be mean; whatever brilliance Nixon had had he had sold it for a mess of politics.  To a youngster Gerald Ford was just amusing, but, the only good things I remember about the Carter administration were Schoolhouse Rock and a sincere attempt to put all that Miles/Feet/Pounds garbage behind us and get on with the Metric System. I wish that those two things had been kept; I hate the fact that I think miles feet in daily life but use metric for all real measurements that involve calculations, and my entire generation knows how a Bill becomes a Law and what a conjunction is. Can that be said of any generation since SR went off the air?

In the later 70’s people were starting to have a more positive attitude again after the post-Vietnam malaise; new trends, inventions, media and fashions caught people’s entrepreneurial spirit again after the Malaise of the crash and burn of the 60’s.  Then Disco and the Moral Majority showed up, and everything went to hell… at least on the cultural scene.

All the progress that had been made toward making nudity and sex things that were not evil in themselves, but just there turned into Madonna prostituting her body to bring attention for her otherwise adequate talents (for music fans, Madonna was the Anti-Kate Bush) and Falwell and his ilk trying to drag human bodies back under the blanket of a 1900’s “sex, what sex?” mentality.

Meanwhile both sides of the spectrum kept taking turns racheting up the partisanship; a major casualty – after 1974 the environmental movement was pretty much dead-  a zombie under the control of political Leftists who DID nothing while gathering as much poltical power as possible while “saving the Planet.”.

Leftists will tell you the 60’s were ruined by Right-wing bigots and Imperialistic greed; and in part they are right, they just do not tell the whole story – like who started most of the conflicts the Right-wingers handled badly (shades of McCarthy).

Right-wingers harp on the fact that the reins of control for the peace movement ran to Moscow, and how the violence and purges were just kept out of the public eye behind a wall of flowers. And they too are right; but they miss the fact that most of the *people* on the ground in the 60’s were, for the most part,  good hearted souls who just wanted everybody to stop FUCKING with others in cheap power that solved nothing – it is a hard stance to argue with, except that we live in a world where the other guy may decide he LIKES being mean and we have to get aggressive in defense of what we cherish.  It was naive but, it was sincere for the majority of them.

The 90’s were a pretty good time for most of the country. But, the wealth gap kept increasing and more and more people became more and more upset at the witch hunts by the Republicans against Clinton; Whitewater produced nothing after years, until the Revenge of Linda Tripp debuted in DC.. Partisanship ratcheted up one more notch, and axes were ground all across the Left.

We all remember the joy of the Bush Years; Liberalism in the US seemed to have fully morphed into Left-Wing attack politics; RIP Feminism, Race Relations, Environmentalism and Freedom of Religion being Liberal movements Rather than cynically deployed political tools.

At the same time those on the right took pride in stripping themselves of any perceived “Liberal” taint in their move to finally throw real Conservatives into the background of their Neo-Con, Right-Wing and often Theocratic power structure.

But Virginia, all is not lost! Even as their hubris takes the country to the brink we see that their very excesses have begun to waken the American voters to the truth of their anti—American partisanship.

Bush II began it, Religious Christians realized they had been used, and used badly in the election and began to withdraw much of their support for partisan politics from the pulpit.  Now Obama is working hard to put the final nails in the coffin of PC politics with HIS excesses and obfuscation.  Is there any group but the DADT opponents that he hasn’t betrayed? I hear his latest is to instruct the Fed to aggressively attack the Ca medical Marijuana situation… a 180 degree turn around from his election position.

I put my faith in the American Public, the fools on the radical ends are nothing but self-serving bags of hot air!

The Worm is Surely Beginning to Turn On The Islamists in the West: Credit Where Credit is Due

Today the Huffington Post, a blog more known for its Leftward bias than its claimed moderate stand actually made good on its claims today. There is an article linked from Marie Claire that is unashamedly about honor killing in the West.  Not one line or even a word of Islamist apologetics!

"An American Honor Killing

In a quiet suburban parking lot outside of Phoenix, a father floors the gas on his Jeep Grand Cherokee and heads straight for his 20-year-old daughter. His goal: to protect his family’s "honor." Yes, honor crimes have washed up on our shores.

History 101: Israel – How to Win ann Argument While Riding the Palestinian Merry-Go-Round

Take Your Jihad and SHOVE IT!

It is a tactic of pro-Palestine people (indeed of all partisans) to jump from one
argument to another as pints are raised that they are:

A. Unable to answer

or

B. Unwilling to answer.

Immediately on encountering one of these unfair logical hate-tactics the pro-Palestine (also known as the anti-Israel crowd) pundit leaps to the nearest ad hominum or personal attack they find handy; anything other than answer the point actually raised.

When they are the ones raising a point it does one no good to make a reasoned response, the pro-Palestine-ian (henceforth to be referred to as the pP’s) will simply jump to the next step on the Palestinian Merry-Go-Round.

As a public service Heretics Crusade is providing this guide to major points on the PMGR so you can make a valiant, but almost certainly futile, attempt to keep the pP’er on track:

We jump on with a response to the pP’s assertion that Israel is “collectively punishing” the Palestinians because their leaders are
responsible for violence and terrorism with the fact that those same Palestinians elected those Arabic Hitler’s and Himmler’s and Berya’s knowing their goals and attitudes toward Israel and Jews.

The pP’er next tells us that Israel has no right to isolate the Palestinians and we respond that no one makes the Egyptians and  Jordanians and Lebanese keep their borders closed to the “peace loving” Palestinians; they come back with the excuse that Israel “occupies” land that we then point out was formerly aggressively occupied by Jordan and Egypt and Syria in the course of those countries territorial-based wars of aggression in 1973, 1967 and 1948.

So then the pPer will claim that Jews Stole the Land from Arabs. OR it might berendered “stole all the good land”, but the message is the same, we had a land of milk and honey and the Jews stole it. We then respond that more than 90% of the land was purchased from absentee landlords, almost all Arabs themselves, and was barren when the Jews bought it and that it was the industry
of the Jews that MADE the land worth anything at all. We show them pictures of Israel in 18050, 1880, 1920 and 1930 and the pP’er simply says that the Jews came to the land from other lands to settle even after we show them that most of the Arab population of the 1930s were recent immigrants themselves, come for the jobs brought by the British and Zionists.

One key point that many pro-Israel people miss out on; one that leaves them vulnerable to certain arguments, is how the permission to SETTLE and be self-determining was given to the Jews in the Palestinian Mandate (which never mentioned Arabs
by name) but, that SOVEREIGNTY was not in the cards until THE ARABS rejected the rights of the Jews to live in the Mandate AT ALL. THAT is what brought about the ultimate partisan attempt by the UN that the Arabs again rejected, launching a guerilla, then civil, then conventional war against all international laws and resolutions of the time going back 70 years.
