Republican “Conservatism” has proven the axiom that every movement begins as a cause, becomes a business, and ends up as a racket. Republicans have run on conservative platforms promising fiscal responsibility, limiting the Federal Government, school choice, border security, and other issues for almost thirty years and they have delivered exactly none of what they promised. But they have become part of an over-privileged Washington political elite that lives in the highest stratosphere of luxury while middle America decays as jobs are shipped overseas, cheap workers are imported to take the jobs that remained, and the former middle class is sentenced to opioid dependency because of the lobbying efforts of Big Pharma.
Meanwhile, the left has simply gone bat-guano crazy, telling us that “whiteness” is a malignant pathology, the values of hard-work and personal responsibility are “racist,” the are at least 58 different genders and if you don’t learn and use the correct pronoun for each of them, you should go to jail, Christianity is contemptible while Islam is laudable, boys should be silent in school and be dominated by girls (and drugged into somnambulism if they act like boys), college men lose all Constitutional rights if a feminist accuses them of rape, free speech should be violently opposed, women should wear p*ssy hats and stupid Handmaiden bonnets to protest against a Christian theocracy that exists only in their fevered, deranged minds.
According to Kurt Schlichter, it’s time for us normal people to reclaim our identities and stand up to both the slimy faux-conservatives of the faux-right, and the screaming nut-jobs of the far left.
Who are the normals? The Americans who built this country, and defended it. When you eat, it’s because a normal grew the food and another normal trucked it to you. When you aren’t murdered in the street or don’t speak German, it’s because a normal with a gun made those things not happen. We normals don’t want to rule over others. We don’t obsess about how you live your life, but also we don’t want to be compelled to signal our approval or pick up the tab. We are every color and creed – though when someone who is incidentally a member of some other group aligns with normals, he/she/xe loses that identity. The left drums normals who are black out of its definition of “black,” just as normal women get drummed out of womanhood and normal gays get drummed out gayhood. In a way, the left is making E pluribus unum a reality again – to choose to be normal is to choose to reject silly identity group identification and unite. Instead of saying “normal Americans,” you can just say “Americans.”
Militant normality is growing as normals awaken to the indisputable truth of our enemy’s implacable hatred for us and everything we hold dear – like America. The sight of moron sportsball players disrespecting normals warms libs’ frigid little hearts – and make no mistake, that diss is aimed straight at us, not at some musical number. All these cultural aggressions are aimed at us, from demanding you obey their pronoun proclamations to requiring your daughter share a toilet with a dude in a skirt. This is how they seek to break us.
Personally, I’m going to start self-identifying as a “Four Lights Conservative,” based on the scene in Star Trek: The Next Generation when a Cardassian tries to break Captain Picard’s will by torturing him until he agrees that there are five lights in the background, when there are actually four.
As Orwell noted, Totalitarian Regimes gain psychological power over their subjects by forcing them to admit what they know not to be true. If the state says “2+2=5,” then its subject must be forced to say, and ultimately believe, that 2+2=5. Thus, does the left try to break the will of the normal by forcing us to deny reality, to deny truth. And we must find in ourselves the will to resist and not be broken.
“There are 58 genders.”
“There… are … 2… sexes!”
“Antifa are like the heroes who stormed the beaches at D-Day.”
“Antifa… are… violent… fascists!”
“White people should be punished for their privilege.”
“There … is… no… white… privilege!”
“Women never lie about rape.”
“Due Process … is… a human right!”
“The Science is settled and climate change is a fact.”
“Science… is… never… settled!”
I guess the trick is to use those ellipses like Patrick Stewart, and not the wheel-chair bound asthmatic kid on Malcolm in the Middle.
