Years ago, political correctness and it's adherents drove me out of teaching. I just couldn't stand it, or to be a part of it.

This is why Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, and yes even George W, and Dick Cheney, are hated and reviled. They say what they mean.

Those that disagree with them cannot really debate them, and worry that what they say will resonate with the people, so they set out to destroy them through humiliation, ridicule, and name calling.

The latest so-called, wannabe scandal in Washington is a pretty good example. It is the CIA plan which was never implemented. The left makes hay over the fact it wasn't briefed even though it wasn't up and running.

The fact that as we now know (because it was leaked) it was a plan to assassinate Al Qaida leaders is minimized in favor of somehow indicting the evil Dick Cheney. Ohhhhh a secret plan.

Now, I don't know about you, but, is this really a revelation? Isn't that what we were supposed to be doing? The Congress is shocked? No doubt it's the methods and resources which are classified or were.

The scandal is that Leon Panetta cancelled it! Why? I thought that was why we're in Afghanistan now.

The left can't sell that this plan was evil, or horrific, so they have to imply that the CIA lied, and Cheney made them do it. Well they didn't lie, they just didn't brief it because it's implementation wasn't imminent for some reason.

That won't matter, political correctness demands they create a crisis in confidence in the main organization charged to keep us safe. But, they can't say that, so, weaken them with bogus accusations, and go after Cheney in the process.

The terms political correctness, and spin, are no more than alternative ways of lying and/or obfuscation, and both are killers and corruptors.

I publish Zack's work every Monday because you introduced me to him. Thanks! :)

Not long ago I posted the video of the "arab festival" in Minnesota.

I was taken to task for posting that from a blogger whom I consider to be a well-grounded voice in America who, for whatever reason, still fails to grasp the threat that Islam in general poses to this country.

Even rational people can be swayed by WANTING to be "nice" or "tolerant" or "accepting" or "non-judgmental" or "urbane" or "sophisticated."

Anonymous has it correct: I am a living example. I told people the truth and I was the FIRST to be served up to the chopping block at my job, after 30 years.

We can frequently be our own WORST enemy.

BZ, what a terrible experience. I guess honor is dead, at least in some places.

Oh, and please call me Pris.

Loved DIVERSITY LANE!

Is it politically correct to call Political correctness "political correctness?"

Magnificent. No other word for it.

And that's dooming our nation, as far as I can tell.

Z said...

RaDena, I'm so glad you're doing that! Zack's terrific! I should tell him I posted his cartoon.....

Then Always' video came and the two just went hand in glove!!

I HOPE a lot of you take the time to watch the video and send it on; Spencer at his very best. (Thanks, Always)

BZ's right.....we're all AFRAID to sound like we HAVE NO HEART! For goodness sake, every time, during the campaign, I'd say I didn't like Obama, I felt I had to go into a big spiel about how I WISH MICHAEL STEELE WAS RUNNING simply because he was Black and GOD FORBID somebody thought I can't stand Obama because of his color..AS IF!! THAT's stupidly PC of me, too...isn't it?

Deborah on the Bayside said...

Great link!! I'm listening to more on that site. Don't miss J. Michael Waller teaching these college kids how to go on the offensive to divide and conquer, or collaborate and encircle.

beamish said...

Z,

we're all AFRAID to sound like we HAVE NO HEART!

This is why I say social and "compassionate" conservatives need to stand back and let small-l libertarians do their thing. Anyone who slanders conservatism as "compassionate" should be kicked in the teeth.

Let us do our thing and you won't have a public education system to worry about praying or learning evolution in. You won't have a welfare system for illegal immigrants to cheat and steal from.

Conservatives need to decide if they are right-wing or not.

Z said...

Deb..where's that link? on the same page as Spencer somewhere?

Beamish, I don't mind evolution being taught as long as the creationism that 85% of our people believe in is also taught with the same open mind.

As an aside, we've got a government now who's hearing that 75% of Americans like their health care but the thugs aren't happy with that.......there's compassion, huh?
Letting anybody over 58 die because a shunt's expensive sure is compassionate, isn't it?
A visit by government health consultants (the grim reapers might be a good name for them?) to your elderly parents to inform them that death by not having an operation is a viable choice is apparently very compassionate, too..especially when the woman I heard talk about this aspect of the new health care bill suggested that families don't usually discuss that option, too...WHOSE FAMILIES?
Ya, it's compassionate now to figure we're all MORONS and need them to hold our hand from our near-abortion to being given the gift of death because the gift of life's a bitch for the gov't to pay for.

SOME COMPASSIONATES there on the COMPASSIONATE LEFTWINGERS, huh:?

I've had the urbane and sophisticated down for some time can I still be "PC" without the "nice" and "accepting"?

You said:

Thanks for affirming my point.

Z said...

Odd that the more Cheney talks the truth, his favorability numbers are going up. What a NUT, huh?
Odd that Palin's so scary to the left that they're STILL piling it on her! What a NUT, huh?
As for Coulter, not many could come close to her intelligence, logic and amazing humor. I wish I were that nutty.

Z - the Waller link is on the right hand sidebar next to the Spencer video. Or here directly: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/1828857

Thanks for the link, Deborah...
I thought he was good.........only watched almost half.

I don't know what conservative groups are siding with Islamists so that got me curious..

I believe the term ISLAMIST IS enough because most people do separate Muslim from Islamist and Islamist is the pejorative of the two(usually), of course...Probably good to use EXTREMIST with ISLAMIST but I don't always...I think Islamist says it all, usually. If Muslims don't like that, let them speak out against the Islamists in their (our) midst. I have YET to hear much "Those extremist Muslims don't represent US"..which I believe would go a loooong way. And which I believe we'll never hear..simply because of their pretty persuasive and evident scripture, which I explain here:

I have difficulties separating the religion from the political ideology because they're really one and the same, BUT I do understand his point. You get NOWHERE with the Leftist supporters of IslamISTS if you dwell on the religion ..Then, it's all "You bigots, you rightwing Christian fanatics who hate all other faiths" then, I know that. Still, the Koran is where they get their 'best' stuff, as we all know..their encouragement to kill non believers.......Though our Left STILL denies that no matter HOW many times they read that scripture, then, right after denial, they throw in "And just LOOK at YOUR BIBLE!" Of course..that part that says KILL ALL NON CHRISTIANS, RIGHT, FOLKS? (WHERE?)

Anyway..anybody who's showing young Americans how to divide and conquer, to EDUCATE, to stand up for what's RIGHT for OUR COUNTRY, or at least just argue in a way that defeats Alinsky's Rules (many of which Islamists and leftist use), is a VERY VERy good thing..maybe about 10 years too late, but a good start.

beamish said...

Z,

My point is that conservatives rare-to-never go on offense.

We're arguing about what should be taught in government run public schools instead of fighting the existence of government run public schools. And an endless number of issues where we let "our country do for us what we should do for ourselves."

When the avalanche starts, it's too late for the pebbles to vote.

I'd rather be heartless than tolerant of stupidity.

Z said...

Beamish, I'm with you on that...

I just don't see how we can educate a full two generations again...most kids don't know who Geo Washington was. They SURELY don't know the constitution!!
Get this:
I heard a stat tonight that 6% of kids thought the moon landing didn't happen when the first whacko conspiracy people started coming out... I wish I'd caught the year, but very recently 25% of American kids say IT WASN"T TRUE.
What are they GETTING IN SCHOOL?
You have to know they don't TEACh that, BUT, they DO teach "YOU CAN'T DEPEND ON AMERICA FOR THE TRUTH....ALL WAR'S BAD AND LOOK WHAT WE DO...ALL POVERTY'S BAD YET WE HAVE POVERTY......etc etc"

That shook me up, I have to admit, Beamish..25%. That is NUTS and it shouldn't surprise me and it's so not about the moon landing, it's about something SO MUCH MORE DANGEROUS.
Thanks, leftwingers....you're SURE getting your way..you've plotted and planned America's on a highwire with its NET thanks to you. (dayum)

beamish said...

Z,

I just don't see how we can educate a full two generations again...

We can't. And we shouldn't try.

Let the champions of the nanny state explain why their education system produces more state-dependent idiots than sucessful individuals.

Ducky's here said...

Pris, just how do you "debate" Ann Coulter. How do you "debate" an anorexic clown who exists to insult?

Do we ask the moron what she thinks of Polyani's theory that the state must somehow merge socialist elements and an efficient market economy.

Do you actually think someone like Coulter or Glenn Beck should be allowed to sit with the adults.

Your spokesperson is Ann Coulter? And you talk about honest debate and intelligence?

Ducky's here said...

.I think Islamist says it all, usually. If Muslims don't like that, let them speak out against the Islamists in their (our) midst. I have YET to hear much

-----------------

Been watching people get cut down in Iran lately while you are safe at home?

Z said...

Beamish, "explain"? ..They LIKE their nanny state, leftwingers LIKE having Americans dependent on them..they can abort and euthanize more that way.

Ducky, just wondering if you could EVER keep straight on a subject. (Sorry to use the word 'straight', please remember I'm talking about paying attention, don't get carried away); We are talking about Islamists in AMERICA and political correctness and how utterly stupid we are for ignoring and accepting CAIR, threats, etc. Better to be "KIND" and "OPEN MINDED" than safe, right, Ducky?.

And, thanks for making my point; you're always telling us we're 'bed wetters' and there is no terror threat but yes, look at how an Iranian regimes handles their own people..that's TERROR, Ducky.

Next time you hear decent, non threatening muslims speaking out against the islamists here in America in any meaningful number or manner, please let me know.

As for Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck, you just sound silly. I KNOW it's painful for people like you to hear the truth, I REALLY do, but for ANYBODY to slam them who's been exposed to Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow or Jeanine Garafalo, etc etc...well, one has to grow up and realize the other side of one's political leanings is DIFFERENT, Ducky, NOT EVIL.
I can see why you'd need to insult her here, she's scary to people like you, I know!

beamish said...

Z,

Yes, they should explain. If they want to come out and admit that their education system produces state dependent idiots intentionally is up to them.

Otherwise they can squirm with their feet to the fire and start losing arguments for keeping government run public schools in existence.

That is, if conservatives ever decide to want to argue for that (again).

Z said...

but, beamish, they are HAPPY to have ruined our kids..WHY would they EXPLAIN ANYTHING? The more dependent on the gov't, the happier the leftwingers ARE!

Zack R said...

Many thanks for posting me yet again, Z. My own "neighborhood" gets relatively little traffic so it's fantastic to read the interesting, usually very favorable remarks your followers have to offer. You're the best...

"Pris, just how do you "debate" Ann Coulter. How do you "debate" an anorexic clown who exists to insult?"

Ducky, Ann Coulter does her homework, and is prepared with facts, interwoven with her biting sense of humor. The same for Glenn Beck, for that matter.

Of course we all know you'd never stoop to insults would you? What a joke!

If you want to debate them, show up with facts to do so. But, you can't can you? Ann Coulter is a brilliant, politically incorrect gal. If she intimidates you, that's your problem, and that's why, Ducky, you continue to verbally pound the table!

"Your spokesperson is Ann Coulter? And you talk about honest debate and intelligence?"

Oh Ducky, I love how you dodge and weave, you think you're so clever.

Conservatives don't need spokespeople you should know that by now. We are capable of speaking for ourselves as evidenced on this site every day.

Intimidating isn't it? That's why you radical leftists want to shut us up, facts and common sense are your worst enemy.

When / if conservatives really, REALLY start pushing for ending the existence of the Department of Education and government run public schools, the leftists will have to rally around and defend their joke of an education system.

They have the hard sell. We don't.

Unless, of course, we're content to let leftists continue to choose our battles for us:

"Save our welfare from the Mexicans!"

You don't replace cancer. You remove it.

Z said...

I getcha now, Beamish....I guess it's SUCH a pipe dream that we WOULD hold their feet to the fire that it didn't even register exactly WHAT you meant.

Ya, we can dream.....we just HAVE TO DO SOMETHING. YOu've got a little spare time right about now...I'm putting the state of American education in your hands. OKAY? :-)

START WRITING, buddy! We're RIGHT THERE WITH YOU
