Thank God for the Rough Men Ready to Do Violence on Our Behalf



People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. ~attributed to George Orwell

A friend and brother posted this and was ripped for his timing and sentiment that we remember the rough men who protect us. I think his timing was perfect and the sentiment is sorely needed. 

Do you know that “rough men” is an English expression that doesn’t mean vulgar or uncouth or violent? It refers to men who are tough and able and refreshingly masculine—the kind of men we desperately need right now.

I thank God for the rough men who protect and serve us rather than protecting their own power and serving themselves. 

Rough and Ready

Remember the rough men who went up the stairs in the World Trade Center buildings to help others make it down to safety? Or the rough men who dug through the ash and wreckage to look for survivors?

How about the rough men who ran headlong into machine gun spray on Normandy beaches? I served with rough men in the Navy. They were men who patrol the sea and stay ready to protect our nation. 

Where were the rough men when Portland citizens were threatened with violence last summer? They were willing, but were leashed by those in charge. Could people there sleep peaceably in their beds? 

We desperately need rough men. They face an onslaught of lies and political and social vilification that is as undeserved as it violent. We should thank the rough men who protect and serve us.

What happens when rough men become disillusioned? When they strip them of all kindness and respect—and funding? Will they give up and give in like so many of us have with our silence? 

Think about this as you drift off to sleep in peace knowing that rough men patrol your streets, towns and cities and stand ready to do violence on your behalf. Thank God for them.

We all know that San Francisco is a place that gets lots of earthquakes. Some of them have been devastating in the past. There was an earthquake recently in San Francisco, but not the natural kind. This was a political and educational earthquake. And it is the biggest sign yet that we, conservatives, are winning! PolitiCrossing founder and American Freedom Tour President Chris Widener explains in this short video the powerful impact of what happened in regard to the San Francisco school board that should bring hope to all conservatives!

IMPACT is an organization dedicated to the future of our students. We are searching for passionate people to stand-up for their conservative values by running for their local school board. We believe the best way to help our students, is to give training and support to those like-minded individuals running for school board in their own community.

As an organization, we believe in providing the best for our students. That includes fighting divisive curriculums like Critical Race Theory (CRT), preserving a parent’s choice and voice, and keeping partisan politics OUT of the classroom.

Our children are counting on us to take a stand. They may be the leaders of tomorrow, but we are the leaders of today, and it’s our job to ensure they have a tomorrow to look forward to.

Are you ready to make an IMPACT? Join us today by filling out the form above or donating to our cause so we have the resources we need to be the heroes our students deserve.
