They Hate Us...Maybe We Should Start Accepting That And Respond Accordingly

Samuel Gompers was once asked what he wanted for the American labor movement and American labor, and his answer was simple, "More." And that is exactly what the modern Left wants too, but in this case it is a true zero-sum game, and we are across the table from them. Everything they want is at our expense, everything they desire is ours, and they want to deprive us of so many things...our wealth, our freedom, our safety, our defense against tyranny...

But it's not just their obvious desire for power and control that drives them. They have internalized all of the class hatred and envy from every psychotic progressive movement in their political philosophy, and have made that hate the primary driver of everything they attempt. We saw it exposed with Hillary Clinton's infamous "Deplorables" speech in 2016, and before that in Obama's "Bitter Clinger" remarks eight years earlier.

But it is now accepted in polite company to express this hatred and disgust for half the country. What shocks them to the core is when our president doesn't just meekly accept the vile and vicious and contemptuous prattle, and responds with forceful condemnations of the people who spout this hatred.

Make no mistake; this is not just political disagreement. This is a fundamental dislike and rejection of the culture, ethics, beliefs and morality of half of America.

They Will Still Hate You Even If You Disarm

It was quite a surprise to find out that we Trump voters were personally responsible for the savage murder sprees of a creep who dug single-payer and a satanist fan of Big Chief Warren. The El Paso scumbag decided he wanted to murder Hispanics because migration would somehow destroy the environment, which falls right in line with classical progressive eugenics balderdash. The Democrat from Dayton was full-on #Resistance. But apparently we conservatives were to blame for their actions because we refuse to give up our rights.
The 2nd Amendment is just the most obvious and important chip on the table. But if they get that one, does anyone believe that they will stop? The next right they want to destroy is free speech, which is coupled with freedom of religion. And after that? Who knows? Property rights are mostly gone already, so your guess is as good as mine.

What's the answer? Well, I know what isn't the answer, and that is how the Republican Party has dealt with these attacks for a generation. I am through with tolerating personal attacks on my beliefs, and that means attacking the Constitution and in particular the 1st and 2nd Amendments. Yes, I take it personally now, and I won't back down.

The Left and their willing fools have had uncontested control over the public square for too long. Push back wherever you can. Kurt Schlichter is 100% correct...they hate us no matter what, and nothing will change that.

13 Every conservative in the country should immediately buy a gun if they already don't have one, and should get a concealed carry permit if their jurisdiction permits them. And begin concealed carrying whenever they are in public.

And, if their jurisdiction doesn't allow concealed carry, they should be doing it anyway.

34 Up in Canuckistan, Toronto has had problems the past few years with shootings. They pretty much all involve illegal handguns. Last year the mayor of Toronto joined the chorus of politicians calling for a nationwide handgun ban. All the politicians know it's impossible to implement and won't solve the actual problems that lead to the shootings that happen in places like Toronto, but they go on about it anyway.


The mayor of Toronto has since backtracked on the nationwide call for a ban and said he'd be good with a handgun ban in the city itself.

1967 and 1968 were tangibly different because there was a lot of REAL violence, in terms of race riots that were actually killing people.

I see Epstien as being way too narcicisistic to be a suicide type. He would've believed that he could talk, bride or charm his way out of serious problems. Dead, with media smothering the story, he's a problem solved for a lot of people. I'm now wondering how corrupted by him NR and the cucks are.

89 People, most, are very susceptible to propaganda. Propaganda is a skill mastered by the left. If you can make someone buy a product they don't really need, and make them thinks it's their own idea on top of that, you can make them buy into an idea and/or candidate. It's a science. Many on the left are not bad, awful people. The are just easily manipulated people.

92 Hillary was attacking half of "our side" actually, and that was scripted for her, she had used it before it got national attention. "you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables". She was trying to divide "us", we should try to divide them ... but not by calling their people deplorable, by calling their people good (fine people on both sides, Trump did it right) ... but their (elitist) leaders and radicals are crooked and commie.


youtu.be/OZHp4JLWjNw?t=12

imo The Squad has the energy, from the fringe, but middle America is with Trump on most issues ... liberty not communism, border control, American jobs First, fairness but not anti-White hate, don't teach kids about anal sex in grade school, etc.


imo we have to keep reaching ... not across the aisle, but reach out to Dems that don't want BAMN or other forced change. "Their groups" are not being served, but they are being drafted to fight a totalitarian war on behalf of Cummings/Maxine or some very radical few.


The loud voices are astroturf and fringe for the left, and media and Google. I agree we have to push back at every chance directly or by mocking, but in a way that appeals to those still voting Dem that are not radical commies. Trump does that by working on real solutions and pointing out Dem control has left behind neighborhoods full of rats. Mock how their elitist corruption has harmed "their fine people". As with the statue debate, it is fine to disagree, and move on as neighbors. (but isolate the "not fine" few real KKK and much more violent and well funded antifa)

93 If we don't impose our beliefs on them, they will impose their beliefs on us. That's the history of the human race in a nutshell.

Our American values are individual freedom honesty, truthfulness, a legal system where everyone is treated equally and proof of guilt is required, an educational system that teaches facts and a society that expects people to grow into mature adults who will nurture and care for their children.

We need to stand up and counter the Left with these facts each and every time the opportunity arises, which is all the time now.

Again, we either impose our will upon them, or they'll impose their will upon us. Our beliefs have proven themselves over several centuries where progressive beliefs have failed spectacularly.

105 Here's more from the Yahoo article:

"The text-message threads and FB message threads have surged with
questions about how and when to leave," said Jacobs, a 41-year-old
public affairs consultant who lives in New Jersey with his wife and
toddler, and who began looking to Israel as an "escape hatch" as soon as
Donald Trump was elected, but whose stockpiling of cash took on new
urgency this week.



Try Venezuela


Among what the couple sees as the many attractions of Australian
society - including universal health care and affordable private
insurance, mandated parental leave, four weeks of vacation for all
workers and strong limits on guns - the Lorenses are drawn by the
political culture, which, Aussa says, "protects them from a Trump-like
outcome."
"They do not have a major political party that is at all
equivalent to our far-right Republicans," she says. "Their conservative
party is more like the moderate Democrats. They don't argue about
whether health care is a basic human right or whether climate change is
real. They banned guns after a mass shooting."
For others, the motivation is what they describe as an increasing level of daily fear.

Nature abhors a vacuum. President Trump is the corrupt globalist establishment's last chance at a peaceful reset to nation interests. Similar movements have appeared in Italy (who'd have predicted that one?), Hungary, Poland, Brazil and to much lesser extents France, Germany and Britain. People are not happy about artificial changes to national cultures. The globalists are creating tribal tensions rather than lessening them by allowing open boarders.

Of course, we can see that the globalists have decided to force their worldview upon unwilling citizens. What comes after President Trump won't be as nice to them.

151 Just as an aside

In Hong Kong mass transit is being used against the protesters.

Thugs aka triad members faithful to mainland China whipped democracy protesters with bamboo or metal rods and the democracy protesters ran to get on a train. The train not only was not allowed to leave the station but the doors were not allowed to be closed. It took Hong Kong police thirty minutes to arrive and they made no arrests.

Before and now during larger protests stations are closed to prevent protesters from reaching approved protest areas.

Finally protesters suspected that the police were using their credit card information from mass transit ticket purchases and therefore waited in huge lines to pay cash. Protesters left coins and tickets for other protesters.

Long story short liberals love mass transit because they can control you. Refuse to lose your autonomy. America is the land of the auto. Choo choo Biden can stick it.

Bury tubes, activism (vote, write and call your congress critters) and a recalcitrant attitude will do more to protect your 2nd amendment rights than anything.

I'm a lifetime NRA member but you have to remember that every gun grab, EVERY SINGLE ONE- the 1968 gun control act, assault weapons ban, may issue states, high capacity magazine bans, yada yada, happened on the NRA's watch.

You need to protect your own rights and not outsource.

Without hate and discord, the Left is defanged. So if a scientific survey reveals that belief in God makes people happier and more confident for the future, that survey must be discredited. Conservative messaging must support policies that make people happier AND point out why the Left's attacks make people angry and less productive.

"The day that we will be ready seems ever closer." Well aware that Spain under longtime dictator Francisco Franco was informally aligned with Germany, although formally neutral, during World War II, she added: "Wouldn't it be nutty if we had to escape fascism and anti-Semitism by moving to Spain?"


Same for Karen Allendoerfer, whose husband, a German citizen, has lived for more than 20 years in the U.S., where they have raised two children. "That would be ironic," she said of her vague plan of eventually teaching English in her husband's native land. (She currently teaches biology at a STEM-focused private school in Silicon Valley.)

Disagree, the rabid screeching "I hates the bad OrangeMan and his supporters" is a symptom of President Trump and the other nationalistic leaders proving that the transnational socialists were full of $h!t and their "solutions" aren't. The LIVs are tuning-out; none of the young engineers I work with had a word to say about the Dayton or El Paso shootings (and they all enjoy going to the Oregon District).

However, Senators Warren's and Gilibrand's attempts to re-open racial tension due to Michael's Brown's justified shooting by a LEO as an illegal murder is flat-out evil. They are intentionally playing with fire and seem to be perfectly content to cause fighting in the streets as long as they get more power. Such people fill me with a grim resolve to oppose them.

230 PDT's admonition to leave America if you don't like it was exactly what the Left needs to hear. IMHO, we should be ramming their own meme of "multiculturalism" right back at them.

F'rinstance, if you think sharia law is all that good and wonderful, you can start living in a sharia-law country tomorrow. You can board a plane today and it will take you to the muslim land of your choice. You don't need to wait for it to arrive here, you can have it very soon. Why wait? It's a big wide world out there just waiting for you.


America is a Christian nation and always has been. If that's not your cup of tea, then the onus is on you to leave, not us to bend to your will. That's just not how this works and the Progs need to be informed of that a lot more often.

231 This guy claims that his earlier conviction gave Epstien blanket immunity for crimes he may commit for five years after his first conviction.
WTF?
Posted by: Winston a dreg of society at August 11, 2019 12:33 PM (FXmGD)

That is actually an interesting legal point, I don't know how a court would have decided, but he could have raised this issue at an appeals level, and he had a chance of it being accepted. The original deal he was given was pretty sweet, and it's questionable whether the feds could just say "never mind" like they did.

What's significant is that for this reason, there is no way that Epstein would have committed suicide, not with this potential get out of jail card still out there and possible viable.

232 The U.S. men's foil team emerged victorious at the Pan American Games

in Peru on Friday, earning gold medals for fencers Race Imboden, Gerek

Meinhardt and Nick Itkin.




After the team received its gold medals, Imboden took a knee on the medal podium as the national anthem played.



Following the event, Imboden

took to Twitter to explain why he took the knee. The main reasons:

racism, gun control, mistreatment of immigrants and the rhetoric of

President Donald Trump.



Go fck yourself "Race".

275 Here's Socrates spelling it out in Crito.

"The City of Athens, Greece. Love it or leave it."

Socrates. For, after having brought you into the
world, and nurtured and educated you, and given you and every other
citizen a share in every good that we had to give, we further proclaim
and give the right to every Athenian, that if he does not like us when
he has come of age and has seen the ways of the city, and made our
acquaintance, he may go where he pleases and take his goods with him;
and none of our laws will forbid him or interfere with him. Any of you
who does not like us and the city, and who wants to go to a colony or
to any other city, may go where he likes, and take his goods with him.
But he who has experience of the manner in which we order justice and
administer the State, and still remains, has entered into an implied
contract that he will do as we command him. And he who disobeys us is,
as we maintain, thrice wrong: first, because in disobeying us he is
disobeying his parents; secondly, because we are the authors of his
education; thirdly, because he has made an agreement with us that he
will duly obey our commands; and he neither obeys them nor convinces us
that our commands are wrong; and we do not rudely impose them, but give
him the alternative of obeying or convincing us; that is what we offer
and he does neither.

refuse to Hate.


That's fine that our military is taught to hate our enemies, I have no problem with that. But seething hatred is something a quality I want in my enemies moreso than myself. Someone who hates will fuck up, often spectacularly so. And that's when I will win.

Emotion clouds even the greatest mind. Real strength has no hate in it. It is resolute and unyielding.

In 2005, at age 31, MacFarlane made his first contribution to the Democratic Party - a $2,500 check to its Congressional Campaign Committee. As his career skyrocketed, so did his donations, which now total $4.6 million, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis of federal campaign filings.

Since 1990, members of the entertainment industry have contributed more than $261 million to candidates and political action committees, with 81% of that money going to Democrats, according to data posted on OpenSecrets.org.

I think we can guess now what Hess was up to, and why Churchill (and the Brit government ever since) has worked hard to block any access to anything he had to say. Hess was going to offer Germany's support to depose King George VI, and reinstate Edward VIII - and Edward was going along with it. As soon as that was done, Edward and his supporters in the upper classes (very numerous, and in key positions) were going to order that Great Britain stand down from all military operations, and conclude a peace treaty with the 3rd Reich.

Churchill and the rest thought that information about this willful collaboration on the part of Edward would have been far too damaging to the Royal Family, possible fatal to the Monarchy itself, so they have always done all they could to suppress it by any means possible.

356 "Trump won't lose a single vote if he Pardons Blago."

Trump isn't pardoning Blago, he's simply considering commuting his sentence to the amount of time he's already served (7 years). Blago's conviction would still stand, plus, because of his impeachment and conviction by the IL General Assembly, he's banned for life from holding any public office in IL, so no chance that he would be running for mayor of Chicago. (Though he could, at least in theory, still run for a federal office like Congresscritter or even, God forbid, POTUS.)

Clemency for Blago could potentially cost Trump some GOP votes in downstate IL, but since Trump's not gonna win the IL electoral vote anyway it wouldn't materially affect his chances of winning reelection.

They will make private sales illegal, limit magazine sizes, outlaw hunting except for government registered goons, require background checks and limit ammunition sales. Create onerous conditions for businesses selling ammunition or firearms, require yearly fees and firearms training courses. Pass red flag laws for the children so ex-wives, pissed off girlfriends, and nosy liberal neighbors can phone the cops. They will have firearms storage laws and seize gun collections, outlaw open carry and reduce concealed carry to just a few. They will outlaw firearms use on public lands to save the environment and reduce and drive out of business gun ranges.

But they will never, ever go door to door because they won't have to.
