Family Security Matters

This column can be deemed Trigger Warning-worthy because it t mocks trigger warning addicts and others dependent on post-adolescence pacifiers.
Short of declaring reality off-limits, the number of things being declared persona non grata by college students seems to be multiplying.
However, is it my imagination or are today’s college students establishing a kind of secular Sharia, sans a mystical deity, without possessing an inkling of knowledge of Islamic law? It could go under another name most college students would be horrified by but unable to refute: Fascism. Historically, Fascism as a collectivist movement, relied on physical force to propagate and impose its various statist agendas, from Hitler’s racist supremacism, to the Perons’ class warfare against the upper and middle classes.
Sharia is a code of Islamic “law” that defines acceptable behavior and “codifies” do’s and don’ts for the average…

Saw this over at WRSA, and was asked to share. So I am. Not linking to the post this time, though, because the Jew haters aren’t even focusing on Islam’s continuing geopolitical attach through immigration on our shores. Pity, that. The owner of WRSA, Pete, is top notch. The commentariat? Not so much sometimes. Lots of rabbit-trailing…
I’m wondering what the last 8 years were, snowflakes…from here. One thing, and one thing only comes to mind: Bring. It. Yourselves. You might even get decorated….
‘I Wish You Pain, Trumpers’
Chauncey DeVega of Salon wrote of Trump supporters, “They made a decision that loyalty to whiteness took precedence to a shared sense of humanity and the Common Good.”
Therefore, they almost deserve to suffer, he wrote.
“The butcher’s bill has come due: President Donald Trump is about to victimize his own voters,” Salon titled his essay.
“Our new president’s supporters are likely to suffer from his regressive policies. My compassion is limited,” DeVega wrote. “This is my version of liberal Schadenfreude — with slightly more hostile intent.”
H/T to Irish, here.
Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you.
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.
Every four years we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power.
And we are grateful to President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.
Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.
For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.
This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.
At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves.
These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists.
Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation.
An education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge.
And the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation, and their pain is our pain.
Their dreams are our dreams, and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.
The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
For many decades we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry, subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military.
We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own. And we’ve spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.
We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.
One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind.
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world. But that is the past, and now we are looking only to the future.
We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.
From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first. Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our product, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.
Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never ever let you down.
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth, and we will bring back our dreams.
We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American.
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example.
We will shine for everyone to follow.
We will re-enforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.
Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.
The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.
Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.
We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.
A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions. It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.
We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms and we all salute the same great American flag.
And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.
So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.
Together we will make America strong again, we will make America wealthy again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again.
And, yes, together we will make America great again.
Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.
See ya, Cultural Marxists, you’re not in charge now. Snow flake medals can be collected on the way out!
And, for the more cultured readership, the following is offered….
Tom Kratman…again. From everyjoe.com, here. Wonderful reading for this day, January 20, 2017, when the reprieve officially begins.
The Great Triggering
(aka “Happy Trump Day,1)
If I didn’t make it clear enough eleven days ago, Donald Trump’s re-election campaign begins now. Moreover, the SJWs, the special snowflakes, the thumb suckers of collegiate campuses, and the legion of the perpetually outraged are all going to help us get him re-elected.
For those who don’t like Donald Trump, think of it as the campaign to keep unutterably corrupt Democrats who hate you because you’re either white or an Oreo/Uncle Tom or, in any case, a doubleplusungood male, or a conservative or other than lesbian female, or at least someone who hasn’t embraced victimhood status, away from the White House silver and china. We all have a part to play in this and we can have great fun, fantastic fun, while we play our parts.
To that glorious (and did I neglect sufficiently to mention fun) end, Thales and I, but 99 and 44/00 % of the work and inspiration came from him, aided by the upright and righteous of heart and mind, inspired by some sixty-three million American voters who have had just about enough, have prepared a video and a little menu of Memes to Taunt SJWs With, which can be .
A minor sampling of these, just enough to give you a taste, follows:
plus the sure to be popular
Spread the memes, friends; spread them to the very outermost limits of the internet, to radio, to television if possible, to the ever so tender consciousness of each and every ever so special and precious snowflake. Send them to Daily Kos, to Moveon.org, to the Democratic Underground. Put them on Facebook. Post them to Twitter. Send a link to Rosie O’Donnell. Permit yourself no conscience, no mercy. Spread the memes to the safe spaces of college campuses. If you know of a lefty blog…well…donate freely and often; it’s all for a good cause.
And someone, if you can, if you have the knack, please post these to Hillary’s email server, too. Yes, Vladimir Vladimirovich, this means you and yours, too.
Give of the memes freely, as well, to the right-wing sections of the blogosphere, that it may continue God’s work. And spare ye not the Never Trumpers, neo-cons, and surrender-before-everything cuckservatives, but rather fuck with them mercilessly, even as they await their handouts in the unemployment line.
And forget not our struggling and suffering brothers and sisters overseas, languishing under globalist and Tranzi2 tyranny. There’s hardly a thought here that cannot be turned against Germany’s Merkel, or in favor of France’s La Pen, or in support of the United Kingdom’s Teresa May.
Watch this a few times whenever you feel your energy or enthusiasm begin to flag:
And, as you do, remember that western civilization is counting on you.
Now, leaving the vaguely King James language and imagery aside, do all this with a smile, knowing that with each passing on of one of these, a special and precious snowflake dies a little inside. Who knows, a few of them may actually grow a tad from the pain and humiliation. They might even become – yeah, yeah; I know it’s a long shot – actual adult human beings. Hey look; I said it was a long shot.
Before we move on to the Great Triggering video, too, we ought to consider just how much help President Trump will be giving us in the great cause. Why, on the first day alone, he’s promised us some twenty-eight badly needed initiatives. He can’t get all of those done that quickly, of course, but some he can surely start the ball rolling on:
- We can, for example, expect most of the more objectionably left-wing executive orders to disappear before close of business Monday. (That will be his first real full day in office and – let’s be fair and reasonable here – he’s entitled to a full day to do all this.)
- We can probably see most federal funding to sanctuary cities disappear, too.
- He can begin to identify criminal illegal immigrants, though one hopes we’ll make them serve their full sentences, that, or be put to death, before we let them go.
- Not only will we get no more Islamic terrorists imported at our own expense, at least from obviously terror prone regions, but the one’s we don’t get will go to Europe, which will accelerate the Europeans getting rid of theirs, too.
- Though it will take a while to come to fruition, we can all be witness to the splendid spectacle of states that have only three exports – Oil, Terror, and Radical Islam – shitting themselves at the prospect that a) “we’ll take care of our own energy needs from now on, thank you, and b) we don’t need you anymore,” as our new president ignores the limousine liberals, champagne socialist, and NIMBY eco-nazi motherfuckers who have been trying to strangle our own energy production for all too long.
And then, too, I’m pretty sure the wall (which probably won’t look like a wall but that’s okay) will be going up soon, if not quite right away. And with each passing day it will get stronger.3
Maaaan…we have a glorious future ahead of us…that, and a whole bunch of lefties and social justice warriors about to stroke out.
(Got to watch that Schadenboner; I’m really too old for one of this scale.)
And now for the piece you’ve been waiting for. For great justice!4
#AllYourBase and #TheGreatTriggering
Next Monday: Free at last! Free at last! Praise God, almighty, I’m free (to speak) at last!

Kratman does have a way with words, doesn’t he? Heh. So, yes, all you ‘Special Snow Flakes, 2nd Class’ decorated with a medal bearing crossed safety pins* just MIGHT want to think about what your ‘kindred spirits’ are asking for…
Very interesting development: The Czech government trusts its own people enough to tell them to defend themselves against terror attacks.
