I have a graphic of which I’m particularly fond:
It’s critical not to appear weak. Weakness invites disrespect. Weakness shown to an enemy invites a savage attack. Even if you’re secretly strong behind a facade of weakness, inviting disrespect is bad policy. Tempting an enemy to attack is lunacy. This is hardly rocket science.
Really people, this is getting exhausting. How many times do we have to say it? How many people have to plead for forgiveness and end up humiliated, broken, and – not incidentally – unforgiven before people understand that the only effective response to these monsters’ fake outrage is to flip them the middle 20 percent of the fingers of a Bulwark staffer’s primary erotic partner?
Never never never give them an inch. It always ends badly.
We are engaged in a war with blood enemies: persons who intend not just our subjugation but our elimination.
Blood enemies do not forgive – and the Left has declared all of us in the Right to be blood enemies. Today they control the whole federal government, all the major media, all the educational institutions, all the entertainment centers, and the entirety of Big Tech. Show them even an instant’s weakness or uncertainty, and they go for blood.
I’m not speaking figuratively. They won’t stop at our silencing, for they know that one who is silenced publicly can still speak and persuade privately. Nor will they be satisfied with majority control of American government. They want it all: no dissenters, no “loyal opposition,” no “two party system.” They intend our total destruction, nothing less. They will use anything as an entering wedge: race, sex, orientation, ethnicity, religion, you name it. Differing with them on any issue, to any degree, puts their crosshairs on your forehead.
(If you’ve wondered why I openly proclaim myself to be a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, an Islamophobe, and a closed-borders advocate, now you know. It saves time and is less likely to provoke actual combat than drawing my sword. On those occasions when I actually want to start something, I simply proclaim Green Lantern to be the greatest movie ever made. It almost always works, but make sure you’re ready for anything.)
The weakness of patriotic Americans’ reactions to the attacks by the various Leftist interest and identity groups has emboldened them to press for more. They too know Lenin’s maxim of the advance: “Probe with the bayonet: if you meet steel, stop. If you meet mush, then push.” So far, mush is all the Left has encountered. What else but relentless demands for more could we have expected?
Never offer an apology.
Be forthright about your values.
Show contempt for those who deride them.
And remember always what Niccolo de Machiavelli told us:
“Before all else, be armed.“
It does wonders for one’s self-esteem.
