Sunday Rant – D T I

From 5 Feb 2014. As appropriate today, maybe even more so.

Our Country!  This, from a friend who is here as a resident alien:

“I’ve lived in your country for a number of years, and I love it as much as  my own.  Why any reasonable person could even imagine that I would be somehow ‘offended’ by Americans celebrating their own history and culture is far beyond my ability to understand.  Sounds as if the only ones that school administrator cares about are illegal immigrants!

Here, it is permissible to celebrate, virtually without limit, the heritage  of various and sundry immigrant and ethnic populations, complete with their flags, literature, and cuisine.  No one ever voices the slightest objection!

But, when the very country that made ‘liberty’ a word with real meaning, that made personal and economic freedom a reality, the country that represents hope for untold millions, citizens of that country may never celebrate their own history, may never even waive their own flag, because those falsely calling  themselves ‘progressives’ insist someone, somewhere might be offended.’

So what!  It makes we wonder where it is written that anyone has the “right” never to be offended.

In this dangerous, hopeless world, where spokesmen from national hell-holes, where even today abject slavery thrives and expands, spokesmen who would be immediately herded into gulags in most places in the world, here speak freely with no fear of persecution.

It is only the good and decent, the productive and moral, who are routinely  shouted-down by radical leftists. In Communist countries, there were ‘useful idiots,’ who naively brought the Communists to power and were quickly thereafter all lined-up and shot!

These kinds of people think it’s okay to make people fearful of celebrating their own culture and heritage.  These are the same people who think it is okay for the government to forcibly disarm citizens, under the false guise of ‘safety.’  They foolishly refuse to see that through their efforts to establish ‘utopia,’ they will be among the first to be herded into gas-chambers.

It won’t be the first time it’s happened!”

I agree with Mr. Wilson. I smile at all the silver-spoon liberals, who seem to have never read a history book, espousing the Great Struggle, while convincing themselves they will be the important ones. The ones with the bumper-sticker platitudes, who just don’t realize they will be in the first line, next to the long ditch. Can’t be having that discent you know.
