Know Thine Enemy
Part 2 of 3

"He ain't heavy Father, he's my brother." Many years ago this cry of adulation from a tiny lad sprang out from the pages of the news in the advertising for Boys' Town. It was the zenith in the deep felt expression of heartfelt altruism in the human equation. It was a positive commitment of one soul to another which would never waver. It was a commitment of life and love. Compare that with the goals of those who would do us in as they strive with a pledge to America's demise, death and destruction.

As pointed out in Part I of this narrative, in our present topsy turvy environment, bashing our country is considered to be politically correct by the socialist/communist dominant wing of the so called democrat party. The Democratists. It meshes with how they assisted the North Vietnamese, the North Koreans and the Taliban. And now it is the Terrorists with whom they have become aligned. They make the fifth column of WW II pale in comparison. This is the modern day negative commitment to which we have as yet not fully addressed ourselves.

On the field of battle soldiers use various weapons and the choice always depends on the strategy and the weaponry needs of the time. Words seem to follow that same general pattern. The way they are used depends on the goals of the user. Words have meaning and they have consequences at times far deadlier than the armaments of the battlefield. We saw what they did to us in Vietnam, in Korea and in the Gulf wars. The purveyors are still at it and today they arrive at the table with that piece of ordnance called political correctness. We are surrounded by unprincipled traitors who are more committed to their socialist agenda than to the safety and security of our own country. They got away with it then and are getting away with it now.

Anything in our society today which is crass, craven, insensitive, dense, unrefined, unsophisticated, immature, boorish and classless, which lacks any semblance of common sense or logic and which is entirely out of tune with what once were regarded as American culture, values, and mores, easily fits the category of our present popular political correctness virus. Add to that the unadulterated fact that we have millions of Americans completely ignorant of what is happening and that they are actually supporting enemies of our country who have disguised themselves with the cloak of patriotism.

Political correctness is not easily definable except by one's own morality, common sense and love of country. It is a nebulous, ethereal, slippery, unsubstantial commodity attacking the very core of the American existence. It has everything to do with disrupting the American culture and value system and constantly moving against the grain. You can no longer do the "right thing." The moral and proper lessons of our history have become perverted and no longer prevail. The Socialist/Communist crowd, the Democratists, have made the dose much more palatable for the masses by altering the main thrust of educative Marxism from economics into cultural terms.

Throughout our history we have mainly operated with two main parties. There has always been political differences with each party feeling that it is the best one for running the country,,,,,,,,and when the battle ended, they shook hands and went back to determining which were the fastest ways to fleece the proletariat. It is now different and much more serious. The present differences stem not from political motivation but from ideological idolatry. How best to turn this nation into one led by a strong federal, centralized government and call it what you will. In our history we have never had so much venom and hate spewing from the mouths of these leftists. There is no longer fear of repercussion from an apathetic, now well conditioned, civically ignorant and apathetic populace.

We see American tradition and values being flouted and trampled on in our lives and in the courts on a daily basis. The incremental repression of our values, freedoms, rights and liberties are ever in motion. To wit: Political correctness is political corruptness legalized. When the aid bill for the victims of Katrina was passed there were billions added as pork for all the congressmen. No morality, no contrition, no remorse, just money to be taken over the heads of victims. When one Senator was asked as to why this was being done he stated with a laugh, "It has to be for this is the one sure way we have for getting re-elected. He is representative of the same group which normally is lifeless, colorless, listless, clueless and usually paralyzed by fear of doing the wrong thing which might hurt its re-election possibilities. However, when it comes to a question of money they wheel and deal with unaccustomed alacrity.

Political correctness has legitimized tyrannical behavior. The Leftists used the college campuses as breeding ground by indoctrinating idealistic and hapless youth. No one other than a Liberal was allowed to speak without disruption. With the University's blessings, of course. One leftist organization in Michigan did everything in its power to keep from the state ballot a proposal which would allow any person regardless of race, gender, creed or whatever to have equal treatment in the University Admissions process. Its best efforts did nothing more than delay the ballot proposal one year. Its tyrannical behavior, of which it boasted, was nothing more than a symptom of the political correctness in which we are presently enveloped and condoned in every facet of our lives including the Halls of Higher Learning. On the other side of the coin we have teachers and professors who cannot speak freely out of fear of reprisal. Thus inadvertently committing themselves to the sin of omission. A form of communicative suppression, so to speak.

In the courts, the politically correct judiciary who have infiltrated the system over the years have not been without shame in destroying the very core of our being as a nation. They did take Constitution 101 in Law School but only for the opportunity of shredding it. Teachers and Professors are unabashedly indoctrinating our youth without fear of reprisal. In the name of freedom of speech why would we allow a Ward Churchill to vomit hatred of America in the classroom and a Kamau Kambon to address college students with the colloquy that white people want to kill us but at the same time not allow an individual to yell fire in a crowded theater? This is political correctness in its finest hour.

The Islamic schools are growing like topsy throughout the country. Some fear that they are teaching hatred of our country. Why worry ----- this has been and is being done in American schools already. We're not doing anything about it so why be concerned about the Islamic schools? It is not politically correct or fashionable to confront, attack or be too concerned with enemies of our country. I would call this the tyranny of the minority. Some just call it unmitigated idiocy.

The herd syndrome has conditioned us. Once a nation of fiercely independent people we have now been conditioned to dependency. Our defense against political correctness is as inept as the still used useless prevent defense in football. We loosen our defenses near the end of the game and wonder why all of a sudden the quarterback is able to gobble up so much yardage.

Political correctness has infiltrated our military to a debilitating dimension. We must give thanks to a defense department now fossilized which puts our troopers at risk since it has inculcated the fear of court martial if any soldier shoots first. When our men and women are faced with savages who hide behind women and children and who dress themselves in garb other than that of a warrior we must give them first crack at us. Bringing a political agenda unto the battlefield where the main concern is how others view us instead of allowing our soldiers the maximum protection is the acme of depravity in the utilization of proper military tactics and strategy in warfare.

At the close of the constitutional convention in Philadelphia, Ben Franklin was asked if the representatives present had formed a Republic or a Monarchy. He replied, "A Republic if we can keep it."
