So You Think All We Have To Do Is Vote Them Out Of Existence

In Politics by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

Keep It Up Brother, The Fight is not over by a damn sightSo you think we‘ve won the war, simply because we had an election where conservative values actually made a difference? Sure the new “grassroots” efforts of social media warriors across our inter-web finally got We the People’s dander up. Up enough to pull themselves away from “Dancing with the Stars”, so they could cast a vote in the right direction (although I’m truly uncertain what the “right” political direction is anymore…?).

 

So while you’re basking in your glory, please don’t break your arms patting yourselves on the back! It’s a step in the right direction for sure, but this is only one of many skirmishes We the People will have to fight in the foreseeable future. It’s time for all of us to realize that this “socio-fascist” precipice we are so precariously balanced upon is… OUR FAULT! Yep, that’s right, I said it… It’s OUR fault!

Moral Equivalence: Propaganda tool of the shallow and weak-minded.

In Conservatism by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

Really? Have we really become this shallow and superficial?Moral Equivalence: a term used in political debate, usually to criticize any denial that a moral hierarchy can be assessed of two sides in a conflict, or in the actions or tactics of two sides.

 

I saw this posted on another page and the implied moral equivalence disgusted me. The implication is that there is no difference between these two women,

  • A: An armed American free citizen willing to DEFEND life, liberty and even the religious freedom for those religions different than their own…; and
  • B: A religious extremists willing to KILL in order to establish the dominance of their religion and to subjugate the masses under its religious law.
 

To some, far too many I’m afraid, there is no difference that they can see. All they see is what is on the surface; a Gun, a Flag and a Religion. However, to anyone with working brain cells capable of more substantial critical thinking, the two could not be more different, even diametrically opposed. The shallow, asinine question “Is this how we want to be seen?” illustrates the very superficiality they operate under. Their entire thought process never ventures beyond what it “looks” like or how it makes them “feel”.
