8. ‘Morality,’ to the Left, bears not the slightest similarity to that of the Right.
Yet you, Jumbo, voted for a guy who paid porn stars for sex.

"Morality" to the right means having no morals.

'Jumbo'???


You weigh more than I do.

Nah, jumbo...all of your fat is between your ears.

How can you talk about someone else's morality when you're voting for a man who paid porn stars for sex, fatty?

Here's how we define 'morality.'
. ‘Morality,’ to the Left, bears not the slightest similarity to that of the Right.


Under the development of Western Civilization, the Judeo-Christian view of life was central, with it’s tone taken from Genesis 1:26, "And God said, Let us make man in our image.” This obviated both murder, and slavery.



The Old Testament actually echoes the restriction on murder in all five books:

Genesis 9:6 prescribed the death penalty for murder when it said that if a man “shed the blood” of another man, by man must his blood be shed. The only law repeated in all five of the books of the old testament. The death penalty is a value, values are eternal, as opposed to customs or traditions, such as stoning for adultery.

Exodus 21:12-14

Leviticus 24:17 and 21

Numbers 35:16-18 and Numbers 35:31

Deuteronomy 19:11-13




The ‘morality’ of the Left is very different
. Trotsky: "We must rid ourselves once and for all of the Quaker-Papist babble about the sanctity of human life."

Fascists, Nazis, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Democrats
All of them favor the collective, command and control regulation of private industry, and overarching government that can order every aspect of the private citizen's life....right down to control of his thoughts and speech.


None of the totalitarian forms of political plague have the slightest concern for human life: not communism (gulags), not Nazism (concentration camps), not Liberalism (abortion), not Progressivism (eugenics), not socialism (theft), not fascism (murder).

The Democrats check every one of those boxes.

They only differ in the final outcome: slavery, serfdom, or death.

TL, DR, DC.

You applaud whoremongers. Your "morality" is no existent Jumbo.

It is noteworthy and apropos that a Chinese American mom was recently YouTubed excoriating her local school board for mounting an ideological campaign NOT UNLIKE the Cultural Revolution of China which, first of all, sought to disparage, slander, and "cancel" that country's great culture and traditions, to make way for the New Order in which the State defines all.


How bizarre it is to live in a time when "we" must seek to remind The People of the tremendous strides, accomplishments, and precedents that have been brought about by, basically, many generations of WHITE, PROTESTANT, fairly WEALTHY MEN, because those facts make today's misfits uncomfortable. Indeed, without the work, sacrifice, and foresight of those white, protestant, wealthy men, the very pipsqueaks who complain of such ephemeral plagues as "systemic racism" would be living in a shithole country like the ones currently feeding the frenzy at our southern border.

Ask these pampered Blacks, queers, wimmin, etc., what country they could possibly live in where their lives would be better. And I mean REAL countries, not the imaginary social-democrat paradises of Western Europe, that exist only in their tiny pink-shaded brains.

This reads like it right off a White Supremacist website.

Unless you're arguing the nation is great BECAUSE of slavery, BECAUSE of Jim Crow, BECAUSE of interracial marriage bans, BECAUSE of the the mass murders in 1921 Tulsa, BECAUSE of the KKK, BECAUSE women weren't allowed to vote....

....then America can clearly be improved. And the vile relics of white supremecy can clearly be abandoned.

Our nation is greater for abandoning and replacing many of the racist and sexist institutions that riddled it from its founding.

1.How about this as a new understanding of what motivates a conservative: a recognition of what Western Civilization has accomplished and a desire to see that provision and promise continue.

It could be that simple: conservatives desire the perpetuation of America and the journey Western Civilization has taken to lead us to this: The American dream has always included material aspiration, especially for those who start out with little or nothing. But as James Truslow Adams —who popularized the term in his 1931 history, "The Epic of America"—wrote, it was "not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position."

And we are most of the way there….but have to recon with those who hate America, American heritage and values, and even the American flag:

NYT, MSNBC contributor shocks critics by saying it was ...
NYT, MSNBC contributor shocks critics by saying it was ‘disturbing’ to see ‘American flags’ flying during Long Island trip
MSNBC contributor Mara Gay has said it was "disturbing" for her to see American flags flown during a recent trip to Long Island, New York, likening the images to hate symbols.




2.What brought that idea to mind was this passage in a Vince Flynn novel:

“Great civilizations rose and fell as surely as the tides. The Egyptians, the Incas, the Mayans, the Greeks, the Persians, the Romans, the Mongol empire, the Ottoman empire all came and went. The Austro-Hungarian empire, the French, the British, the Russians, and the Nazis would someday merit only a footnote. Who knew what waited for the Americans? The other superpower, the Soviet Union, had lasted less than a hundred years with their grand experiment of communism. A blink as far as history was concerned. If Abel had to guess, America’s preeminence on the world stage would last no more than another hundred years. The country had too many rights and too much wealth. Not enough sacrifice. Too much selfishness. The civilizations that had made their mark did so through brutality or great self-sacrifice by the populace, and often both. The Chinese would become the next sole superpower.”
“Consent To Kill”


The brilliant view of history contained in that passage is that the control of human passions led to prosperity, prosperity led to license and corruption, and that led to the internecine warfare that destroys a society.





3. Consider the journey from the jungle and paganism and to this

This is what we had within our grasp
: Compared to an earlier time, mothers and their children can expect to survive childbirth, and their children live another eight decades. Almost every American lives in a climate-controlled home with food and a TV. They have a car, refrig, microwave, and a cell phone. We have computers with internet, buy products from all over the globe, and cheaply, at that. None will be enslaved, few murdered, and free to have unpopular views or lifestyles. You can worship as you wish, or not at all. There is no institutional racism, and no governmental requirement to have or not have children. There is no aristocracy, no perennial wealth class, and most will die richer than when they were born. Western Civilization, here, and promised to the whole world.



4. What made it possible?

"This is the great contribution of our Judeo-Christian foundation to Western civilization. The principles of justice are laid down in the Torah and the Gospels, and implemented through human actions memorialized in judicial codes.
The written laws and rules are codifications of the unwritten ones worked out over millennia as the result of human interactions and experience."
David Mamet




And, under Democrats/Liberals/Progressives, the book that sets forth the rules, the manual itself, is banned in the government school system.
