Quickies: As I’ve Been Saying

Extreme Language Follows!

     It’s absolutely vital that we in the Right break – indeed, shatterevery one of the Left’s linguistic and emotional taboos.

     Today, in reviewing why Donald Trump has vaulted over all the other Republican aspirants to the presidency, the worthy Ace has a terrific tirade on that very subject. Here’s the haymaker:

     There are simply too many people in the commanding positions of conservative leadership who are very concerned about keeping on the Liberal Friend White List.

     Trump won because when a Native American activist (posing as a journalist) declared that "Pocahantas" was "very offensive" as used in regard to Elizabeth Warren -- dishonestly, I might add, as everyone knows the term is used to deny she's an Indian, not to denigrate her as an Indian, and everyone knows this, and only a liar pretends otherwise -- Trump did not begin falling over himself to make apologies and keep the well-wishes of the increasingly unreasonable left-wing hegemony.

     He just began making fun of the stupid silly bitch for being a stupid silly bitch.

     People are fucking tired of walking around on eggshells and being made to apologize for every fucking goddamn thing in the world.

     And what we increasingly want is a political leadership that tells the Grievance Mongers and Offense Farmers to shut the fuck up and get bent rather than explaining to them how a Conservative Version of Political Correctness Can Achieve All the Good Things That Liberal Political Correctness Can Achieve, But Using Market-Based Mechanisms.

     It's time to stop fucking about it.

     I'm tired of it, and I know millions of other people are tired of it too.

     So I don't give a fuck anymore if some dishonest bitch dishonestly feigns offense over the term "Pocahantas."

     It's time to start treating them as what they are -- dishonest liars trying to control you.

     And it's time to start treating them as straight up internal enemies.

     The Liberty’s Torch condensed version:

Use the terms and tropes the Left styles “offensive” freely and defiantly.

     Whenever they classify some as-yet-unabused term as racist, sexist, homophobic, nativist, “cisheteropatriarchal” or any of the rest of their nonsense, add it to your vocabulary and use it at every opportunity.

     You will be performing a pro-social act:

  • You’ll be defending your freedom of expression;
  • You’ll be desensitizing your audience to the terms you use;
  • In matters pertaining to “tolerance” and “inclusion,” you’ll be defending your right not to give a shit;
  • You’ll be undermining the Left’s media-based linguistic and emotional hegemony.

     It’s time to dismantle the “offense / victimism” culture, and the only way to do it is to hit it in the teeth with a brick. If there’s anything that would better exemplify American defiance of control, it isn’t coming to mind at the moment.

     And by the way, fuck the “poor.”

I was thinking (for some reason) about the word "gay" while trying to get to sleep this morning. It kind of bothered me that a word that had a perfectly fine meaning a generation ago had been stolen from common usage. (c.f., the "Flintsones" theme song that ends with, "We'll have a gay old time.")

And not only is a word stolen from our vocabulary, it obscures the fact of the matter. We already had "homosexual" - a perfectly fine word in its own right which I will continue to use. (Though, because I'm a wuss in California, I've probably used the word in conversation less than 5 times in 65 years. . . oh! except in a friendly argument with a fellow movie buff about whether or not Danny Kaye and Sir Laurence Olivier had an affair. I'm a big Danny Kaye fan and she knew it would drive me nuts.) :)

As for Trump, I wish he was as good at explaining his rudeness in real-time as commentators like Ace are the next day. :)

Yup. Reminds me of an old song.

"You can burn my house, Steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh honey lay off of my shoes
Now don't you, step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes"

Civilized people, particularly Americans, are won't to put up with a lot of nonsense in the interest of comity and tranquility. They can, however, be pushed too far. There is a quote attributed to Yamamoto following the attack on Pearl Harbor:

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

I am uncertain that Trump measures up to such as MacArthur or Nimitz or Halsey but he is leading the charge.
