Liberals are at the root of military worship. This makes perfect sense. While a few elderly vets think the military is a conservative institution, younger right-wingers know better. At the same time, younger liberals, not socialized in the same post-Vietnam anti-military world I was, see the military as their personal bodyguard, removing Islamic or nationalist governments and installing liberal, capitalist and feminist ones instead.
While incorrect on the nature of the Confederate secession, he was right on southern virtues and the results of the Civil War. His primary concern was natural law, not specific political agendas. While opposed to slavery with great vehemence, he loathed the notion of immediate slave emancipation without land or education.
To be an American in the 21st Century is essentially like being a Christian. Anyone, regardless of race, ethnicity and country of origin can be one so long as they accept democracy, capitalism and Mom’s apple pie into their hearts. It makes no difference if you are a descendant of the first Pilgrim’s to set foot off the Mayflower or a Sudanese immigrant who landed at JFK Airport yesterday. The name “American” no longer describes a people with a history or a purpose, with a vision of themselves and their place in the world—no, to be an American mean’s to be one of 320 million consumers united by nothing more than a deep and emphatic love of superhero movies and corn syrup.
Transgenderism is a weapon of social terror. It is a pseudo-scientific fad promoted by major media and old money foundations. The 2016 Annual Report from Global Action for Trans Equality states that 11 percent of their budget comes from the US federal government, while almost 85 percent comes from elite foundations. They thank the “State Department” as an important supporter. They also mention the powerful Arcus Foundation and George Soros as significant donors. Only 1 percent of their budget comes from personal donations. This is not surprising. This strongly suggests its a fake issue driven by elites rather than real need.
If to view heterosexuality as the standard sexual orientation is classified as “heteronormativity,” then why — by the very same token — should sex-positive feminists and liberals seek to impose a universal standard of female sexuality on all women, regardless of cultural, psychological, and physical preferences or inclinations?
