I am still numb and dumfounded by the Election 2012 results that saw the re-election of THE most radical BIG Government President in our History. As our Republic dies and democracy-mobocracy grows in America I reflect upon the America my father fought for in World War II.
My Dad, Joe Jacobs was a true “GI Joe.” At 17 he joined the US Navy and fought in the Pacific Theater from 1944-1945. As a kid I use to listen to him talk about what it was like to see the destruction Okinawa, Saipan and Tokyo and his love of P-51′s and B-29′s.
In the mid 1960′s in my neighborhood of Appleton, Wisconsin many times when the “baby boomer boys” would get done playing football we would share our Dad’s WWII stories. I didn’t get it then but our generation was birthed by an amazing generation of Freedom fighters and my Mid-West blue collar neighborhood was full of humble, hard working Audie Murphy’s . Those childhood stories planted in my heart an admiration for our Military, our “Angels of Liberty” who have liberated millions worldwide and preserve freedom in America. That admiration led me to dedicating my life to the teaching of American History at the High School and College level for the past 25 years.
Dare I say in this Lefty politically correct day and age that my Dad and my buddies Dad’s were or are “old white men.” It angers me to even have to say that but I have an angry point to make! I guess that makes me according to the Liberal label pundits an “angry old white man” too.
Since I teach History, Government and Current Events, I read and listen to a variety of News sources from ABC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC to FOX News, the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, The Guardian etc. etc. The hackneyed, regurgitated, reiterated, hyper-stressed mantra, cliche and talking point by subjective TV reporters, journalists, pundits, political hacks and Lefty Obama worshiper media elites is that Conservative losers are: “angry old white men.” Romney, Republicans, Conservatives, Tea Partier’s are labeled as antiquated, religious, intolerant, narrow minded, uneducated, sexist, racist and homophobic dinosaurs or “caustic Caucasians” that need to get with the times because “they are a changing.”
They sure are. And not for the better.
“E pluribus unum” is the unofficial National motto which translates “out of many one.” When Lefty writers like Diane Roberts of The Guardian writes:”a few sprinkles of chocolate and carmel don’t change the over all flavour: Republicans are still vanilla” or when Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and NBC’s Andrea Mitchell call Romney and the Republican Party “angry old white men” their hypocrisy and double standard- double speak, speaks loud and clear:
The color blind “Freedom dream” of most of our Founders or for that matter Reverend Martin Luther King has become a nightmare of divisiveness, intolerance and the veneration of skin color, all but White. As radical feminism, pro death-abortion advocates, homosexual values, ethnic identification politics and university “other than Caucasian” studies explodes government programs at taxpayer expense to appease the promiscuous politically correct powers that be, Life and Liberty diminish and deny the very essence of the one word that made our Republic under God unique and exceptional in World History: Freedom!
