That’s the last time I will use that term. You see, warriors are honorable, fierce, have integrity and fight for something noble. Don’t hide behind masks or roam in mobs. Don’t engage in group-think, aren’t self-serving or entitled. Seek to protect, not destroy. Pretty much everything my father did when he joined the army as a teen to fight overseas in WW2. He wasn’t a Liberal Arts major in college, he had a grade 8 education. He wasn’t a student of philosophy or any of the “mind” sciences. He was just a young man who absolutely knew the difference between right and wrong and knew he had to fight the wrong. Social Justice Cowards is a more accurate term for today’s group. They hide behind the anonymity of social media, they riot and vandalize in mobs wearing masks, for absolutely no reason, they rant about injustices that don’t really exist, they lie and distort to support their agenda. In other words, they have absolutely no scruples or honour. They have an agenda that has been fostered and encouraged for the last 40 years by a very left leaning educational system, pampered by a left leaning judiciary, and coddled by an increasingly socialist political system. We, my generation, have failed them. We took away discipline, encouraged entitlement, lost control, rewarded mediocrity, abandoned our parental responsibilities in favor of striving for “things”, did not instill an inherent sense of right vs wrong and generally let the little bastards get away with murder. Some is our responsibility, some is decided by factors not in our control and some is foisted on us by society in general.
White Privilege is a strictly Marxist SJC turn of phrase. Just read where the South African government, ANC party, you know the one ruled by Nelson Mandela, has just enacted legislation to confiscate all land owned by white farmers and redistribute it to blacks. That only applies to the 30% of white farmers who still are there because 70% have been murdered by black gangs and had their property stolen. Would that be considered Black Privilege???
I can’t and won’t speak for the “majority”. A lot of posts and comments from some (I’m trying to think of some really demeaning word here) people think they do. “I know I speak for the majority when,,,” is an all too often written phrase. News flash!!! You’re an idiot and you don’t. My views are exactly that, MINE. I don’t expect, or care to convert people. If we share those views, fine. Unlike the pious and sanctimonious left, I won’t insult you if you don’t. BTW, that’s the easiest way to tell you’re dealing with a liberal SJC. As soon as you say something they can’t refute, don’t like or disagrees with their agenda, they will invariably insult you. As seen by groups or movements like BLM, MeToo or the Man-Made Climate Change religion, they are convinced the one who screams the loudest is right.
Speaking of climate change alarmist’s, I’ve noticed that some of the people I know who are zealots or fanatics about that topic are also severely anti-gun in their thinking. And it seems facts and data have absolutely no effect on their thought patterns whatsoever. They don’t even question their stance, because it may make them look, I don’t know, weak, uninformed, estranged from their mutual admiration society! Whatever, they’ve taken a stance and no amount of argument, truthful or not, is going to sway them. I guess that’s their critical thinking and open-mindedness at play.
Lets look at some of these “causes” that are supposedly going to be catastrophic for our world. Full disclosure, I’m a “middle-aged”, white, 8th generation Acadian Canadian. An Army Brat who has lived in many different locations in Canada. Lived in Scotland for a couple of years but was way too young to remember. I grew up with guns and am an advocate for gun control. I remember someone once told me, you get education in school, knowledge you get from life. I know a lot of people who have an incredible education, but are really just as dumb as stumps when it comes to life, book smart I think they call it, but that’s another story. So the latest hand-wringing-topic-du-jour is gun control. I think, most people who are passionate about gun control, don’t own guns. I think it would be safe to say, that most of them don’t even have a clue about guns either. Their knowledge doesn’t come from ownership, it comes from mass media, movies and anecdotal evidence. They’re the same people who think AR-15 means Assault Rifle. In the same vein as I don’t think celibate priests should have a say in marriage counselling or contraception and men who can’t gestate shouldn’t have a say in abortion rights, people who don’t know anything about a topic, should really just STFU. The first thing that should be impressed upon people, is laws are made for people who OBEY them. So I advise the anti-gun folks, that when confronted by someone who is pointing a firearm at you, inform that person, in a very loud and stern manner, “You can’t do that, it’s against the law!!!” Boy, that’ll show them… You’ll be dead, but boy will you be right! What we need is more criminal control, not gun control. I hate to tell you, but because of our very liberal hug-a-thug mentality of the judicial system and our get-out-of-jail-free Charter of Rights, if we have a gun problem in Canada (and I don’t think we do) you can point your finger directly at the Liberal Party of Canada. Our current feminine, oh sorry, feminIST PM is a classic example. New laws that only affect legal gun owners. Nothing new in the Criminal code like mandatory sentences. Oh I forgot, we had that under Harper, but JT got rid of it. Maybe minimum sentences for using a gun in a crime? Oh we had that too, but the Supreme Court ruled that was against the Charter of Rights. We had a national referendum on Capital Punishment and 75% voted in favour, but we abolished that anyway. Okay, so that one was a Conservative so I’ll take the hit for that, but we could still have it in. They say the death penalty is no deterrent, but it really cuts down on the recidivism rate! We have far more deaths from health issues related to obesity, should we outlaw MacDonald’s? We have more deaths from MVA’s, should we outlaw cars? Opioid crisis, outlaw drugs? 1300 deaths a year in Toronto from air pollution, outlaw breathing???? See where I’m going here? Some Mensa candidate posted on FB that “one dog dies on an airline and we have the immediate response from gov’t. 17 people die in a school shooting and nothing”. That’s the type of knee jerk stupidity that seems to embrace these issues. Light the torches! Bring out the pitchforks! A sound mind would respond, well, we have hundreds of laws regarding guns, I don’t think we have any about putting puppies in overhead bins, so it’s really a no-brainer!
I have a friend who keeps sending me posts about “science” that links me, in a very derogatory manner, with some rather outrageous groups. He knows full well that it’s not my thoughts at all, but I think I’ve figured out why. He has a FB following that he’s desperately trying to impress. His thought pattern is classic low self-esteem. If I demean my opponent, it’ll make me look good. If his supporters fall for that, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t want them in my circle of friends. His arguments are getting more desperate. I recall a time when I got into a discussion with two Beta males about something that I was totally wrong about. I was asked by the father of one why I pursued the argument when I knew, and he knew I knew, I was wrong. I responded that I wanted to see how far my influence and Alpha male status would allow me to go. Eventually, I relented. It was very enlightening. Watching these two guys scramble to find counter arguments, all the while doubting their own logic.
That’s how the people who voted for Justin Trudeau must feel. “I know I was right to vote for him, but why is he such a disaster?” Either that, or they’re just totally oblivious, like Moonies, Scientologists, People’s Temple, Branch Davidians, you know, all those other independent, deep thinkers.
There are some other deep thinkers who have been posting lately about my Conservative Party(did I forget to tell you? I’m a Conservative) locally. There’s been a lot of, whining, is the only word I can use, about Doug Ford being the leader. Also about Caroline Mulroney in our riding. People are saying they won’t vote PC because of Ford. I say there’s enough stupid people voting liberal, so go ahead and join your friends. That’s the mentality that got Wynne and Trudeau elected. OMG. I don’t like Hudak or I don’t like Harper. Waa Waa. Short sighted, myopic thinking will get a Liberal government elected every time. And Caroline Mulroney is NOT a parachute candidate, she’s had a residence in Jackson’s Point for years. And no, she did not flip on carbon taxes. When she got the nod for the nomination in York-Simcoe, Brown was the leader and his platform was for a carbon tax. If she didn’t agree, she would not have gotten the nomination. Like the old saying goes, you can’t change the rules if you’re not in the game. And Caroline’s Liberal opponent is a school trustee, just like Wynne. And we know how well that’s going!!!!
