Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Dignity’s red, raw ass

This. Exactly, precisely this.

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

Read all of it. And hope like hell that Trump knows just what sort of war he’s really in here. I repeat, read all of it; his closing quote ought to be familiar and welcome to anyone with any sense of American history at all. I’ve used it here more than once myself, in fact.

  1. Trump needs to sharpen his skills on eye-gouging, ear biting, sucker punching, and kicking in the ribs, when an opponent is down.

    I’ve reached the point I won’t feel vindicated, until the opponents of conservatism are not only in the hospital, they pee blood for a week.

  2. My favorite quote from the article – the one that had me pumping my fist and going “Yes. YES!! YES!!!” Was the following:

    ***Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.***

    (Sorry for the asterisks – I couldn’t figure out how to use quote tags. Hope it’s obvious what I was doing)

  3. Hell yes, all of those things are exactly why Trump was my pick from the get-go.
    I even recall using that same Lincoln quote a few times.

    I have watched the last few decades turned into an almost uninterrupted string of leftist victories by dignity, decorum, and phony fairness; it’s bloody well long past time for that to stop.

  4. If Trump has done one thing no one else has even tried, it’s to expose the sorry lot of Dimwitcrats who have been calling themselves “Republican” for many terms in office. And they are certainly as much of the enemy as any Dimwit.

    I’m sorry McCain has brain cancer, but he has led the fight against conservative values and traditions just as much as any antifa street fighter, only with subterfuge, not knives. And the list of those like him could include many of the nost familiar congressional Republicans, especially those who head committees and panels that investigate until the cows come home but never, ever find “prosecutable” offenses.

    Good on DJT. May he keep up the good fight until every last America-hating socialist, whether Dimwit or Republican, is banished to the land of us goobers and we have REAL representation in D.C.!

  5. Personally, I thank God for serving justice upon Johnny “Songbird” McShame, and my only wish is that it had been contagious so that a bunch of his fellow Koch-sucking Rove Republican maggots could soon join him burning in hell where they all belong.

  6. Awesome. And 100% on target. Sick of helplessly standing by while the fucking left destroys my country with the complete acquiescence of the so called GOP. McConnell, mcstain, graham, et al, deserve nothing but a swift kick in the nads and ignominy. Despise all the so called “insiders” and the cult of personality they’ve created. THEY, almost ALL 535 of them, are domestic enemies and should be fired enmass. By the way, the pussy footing around mcstains illness should be tempered by the knowledge that he has worked against us more than for us. And he won’t go quietly into the good night but will give us the finger some how some way as he goes out the door. Bet on it.
