Altering Our Language to Control Minds: Big Brother’s Way

The Left seeks to enforce an extreme edict of ‘political correctness’ so that everybody thinks like they do

Published

on

Since the fraudulent 2020 election, and in particular since January 6, 2021, the Left has more blatantly dominated public discourse and is now enforcing an extreme edict of ‘political correctness.’

To have voted for Donald Trump is now considered a grievous sin, as is being a Republican. To oppose Israel’s right to defend itself in the face of thousands of Hamas rockets is considered de rigueur on the Left.

To take issue with the activities of BLM or Antifa is to risk being socially ostracized, ruining your career, maybe getting beaten, and possibly being murdered.

A Cultural Billy Club

Political ‘correctness’ is a cultural billy club employed by people who seek to:

1. Silence and intimidate others

2. Viciously label those who don’t agree with their viewpoint

3. Belittle them for the language used, even if such language is not offensive

4. Obliterate their careers, if not imperil their safety

5. Diminish any activity, whatsoever, that doesn’t conform to such verbal fascism

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security in 2009, chose to not employ the term “terrorism,” even following despicable acts of terrorism on U.S. soil. After her initial testimony before Congress, she explained to a reporter that while she is aware of terrorism threats, she prefers to call them “man-caused” disasters (!) Let that sink in…

Political ‘correctness’ (PC) advocates demand that everybody think like they do, and march on command as they direct. PC immobilizes others, such as otherwise well-intentioned government officials, from doing their jobs, protecting U.S. citizenry, and upholding the U.S. Constitution. Consider ’sanctuary cities’ and the city officials within them – they are at odds with the Constitution which affords protection to U.S. citizens.

Straight Out of 1984

PC is thought-control, pure and simple, straight out of 1984. It often impedes appropriate investigation into the nefarious activities of certain individuals. As such, and as we’ve witnessed repeatedly, PC can be deadly.

In 2015, many individuals questioned the behavior and activities of the San Bernardino, CA Islamic husband and wife who became mass murderers. The observers consciously avoided reporting them, however, due to the couple’s minority status.

In April 2016, the Department of Justice, under Obama, coined new terminology for convicted criminals: They now were to be cited as ‘justice-involved individuals.’ Youthful offenders were to be deemed ‘justice-involved youth.’ Such language restriction and contortion borders on lunacy. Big Brother would approve.

In Orlando, FL in June 2016, the same phenomenon occurred as in San Bernardino: An Islamic mass murderer was known in advance by many others to be potentially violent and unhinged.

Whoops!: 49 people died, many others were gravely injured, and the town, the state, and the nation was in shock. If the shooter employed a bomb instead of a gun, he could have murdered nearly 350 people, not “merely” 49.

Linguistic Fascism

Following the Orlando massacre, the Obama Administration mandated that the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies be barred from using the words “jihad” and “Sharia.”

Today, a single word in a single tweet that is disapproved by the ‘woke’ crowd might end one’s career; likewise, a comment that one uttered 30 or 40 years ago. PC is the ‘Big Brother’ type  curse of our times and, clearly, the go-to tool of domination.

PC has its own vocabulary, such as “white privilege,” “micro-aggression” and “mansplain.” PC contends that Caucasians, (read: western males) are the embodiment of oppression and that their views, behaviors, and actions are inherently wrong because they are white, western males.

Such terms are designed to squelch the observations, experiences, rationale, and worthiness of the presumably non-conforming opposition.

The Protected Class

In PC culture, minorities can do little wrong, because, well… they are minorities, so the consequences of their behavior are excusable. Consider Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri. At age 18, he had a sealed juvenile rap sheet. It has been proven that Brown did not put his hands up and did not say, “Don’t shoot,” prior to his demise.

Such individuals are regarded as the “continuing victims” of the Caucasian western male-dominated society. Thus, PC advocates bestow upon minorities a de facto life-time pass for any socially destructive behavior that they exhibit, even murder, arson, and rioting. What a world…

May your children and grandchildren one day live in an era when political ‘correctness’ has been totally and irrevocably swept out of our society.

GOP Primaries, for GOP Registered Voters

It is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate

Published

on

Let us resolve to keep our primary voting to those who are registered Republicans. One can make the argument that there are closet Republicans who, for fear of reprisal in the workplace, cannot join the Republican party but are, nevertheless, Republican in sentiment.

However, this is a small group. And, they are more than offset by hordes of Democrats who, if allowed into Republican primaries will do their dirty work as they have done throughout counties in North Carolina and throughout the nation.

Only Republicans

Overall, it is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate.

As a case in point, on the national level, the RINO Nikki Haley would be out of the race if not for Democrat voters stepping over the line in coordinated effort and voting in Republican primaries. Granted, she is backed by billionaire mega-donors who fear Donald Trump. If Democrats could not vote in the GOP primaries, however, the mega-donors dollars wouldn’t be worth much.

As a result of Haley staying in the race, Donald Trump has to spend a bit more than otherwise, and deflect some of his attention away from the Democrats, the swamp, and the Marxist’s plans to destroy our country.

Fracturing Along Fault Lines

The panoply of liberal and Leftist policies are harmful to society

Published

on

Biden and company want to contort the right to vote, endlessly fund Ukraine, kowtow to Middle East terrorists, pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, disband the electoral college, treat January 6th protestors like insurrectionists, convict Trump on SOMETHING, appease China, and permanently make tens of millions of Americans totally dependent on government entitlements.

In recent years, the questionable lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates over COVID-19, and Democrats’ willingness to overlook street violence, enhances my view that the Left loves the idea of total authority and forevermore imposing its will on all of us.

Insanity Over the Top

The panoply of liberal or Leftist viewpoints, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the 1st Amendment, to indoctrinating children is harmful to society.

Is it acceptable to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe, as Leftists do that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers ought to be reading to children at story hour? Should the sciences, mathematics, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?

Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Martin Luther King, Jr, must be rolling over in his grave. Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?

Should student loans be exonerated? Should colleges establish safe spaces? Are you perturbed when conservative speakers are disrupted from speaking on campus, or are banned from campus? Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats?

Open the Spigots!

Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Is late-trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live?

Should we have open borders, and let in anyone who wants to come here, now approaching 9 million since Biden was installed? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare once they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live TV in 2020? How do hordes arrive at the southern border, well-fed and hydrated, after trekking 100s or 1000s of miles, with sturdy walking shoes and cell phones? Should they be flown and bussed all over the U.S. courtesy of the Biden administration? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual U.S. citizens?

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions by giving World War II coverage to carefully crafted, elevated cases?

Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a perceived wrong? Is a comment from 30 or 40 years ago made by a celebrity — or a politician, for that matter — enough to cancel his or her career?

Goals and Tactics of Violent Groups

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd, how many of them actually hold jobs?

In pursuit of protests, do any pay for their own transportation and housing costs? If they do not pay for themselves, who is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?

The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd all the time. Yet, it appears that Leftists do not understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. Their agenda, fully implemented, would destroy our civilization in less than a few years.
One Generation

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”

It would be nice to reach consensus, in some way, with those on the Left, however, my sensibilities cry out and say that would be cultural and national suicide.
