The Liberation Aspect of the Trump Victory
Donald Trump’s positive effect on the nation’s psyche, as he eviscerates political correctness, is so great it cannot be adequately measured. He has single-handedly lifted the poisonous cloud with which the progressive Left has smothered its opposition for decades. From my observation, many are taking full advantage of the new-found freedom, and that’s a good thing. Equally exhilarating is his relegation of the biased media to irrelevance by simply bypassing them. Using communications technology, he can take his message directly to the people.
Examples abound of patriots now speaking out.
Recently, Fox News business commentator, Dagen McDowell, castigated the former President of Mexico Vincente Fox for his lying characterization of Donald Trump. He claimed Trump is no different from Communist dictator Fidel Castro. Before Trump, I doubt the network would have allowed McDowell to address President Fox in that manner. She would have been expected to cower in deference to a foreigner’s kicking sand in our face, as the saying goes. The prevailing wisdom was that America is not worthy of respect—until Trump.
Another example is the recent response by Tim Wildmon, President of the American Family Association (AFA), to the progressive Connecticut State Comptroller, Kevin Lembo. Lembo is a homosexual using the power of government to intimidate Christians. His decision to harass AFA is the result of the organization’s stance against sex activists’ assault on traditional American values. Lembo and the other purveyors of deviancy are losing their most committed champion of deviance, Barack Obama (who will soon lose power), and they obviously feel a need to bully opponents as a reminder of their continued presence.
AFA shot back a response to Kevin Lembo saying essentially his actions against American Family Association are unconstitutional and un-American. They further emphasized, non-profit organizations should not be discriminated against because of his personal disdain for their religious beliefs.
Not too long ago, this kind of behavior against Christians, perpetrated by a progressive sex-activist, would not have met with such quick opposition. But the times “they are a-changing,” and this is also a good thing.
An additionally refreshing example is the response to one of the most destructive aspects of Obama’s all-out assault on America, his disdain for and committed effort to destroy the American military.
Ray Mabus, the progressive Secretary of the Navy, cavalierly dismissed a nearly year-long study by the Marine Corps that proved women are not suited to be fighters on the battlefield. The study’s findings were to be expected. It is a physiological fact that women are not as capable as men to execute the rigorous physicality of battle. Mabus, carrying water for his military-hating boss Barack Obama, is enslaved to a twisted sense of “diversity” with no regard for the consequences of his actions.
In a Fox Business News interview, former Assistant Director of the FBI James Kallstrom gives assurance that this pernicious behavior on the part of Ray Mabus, and other venal civilian military officials like him, will not be tolerated much longer.
Director Kallstrom reiterated what so many retired generals and other officers are now openly stating. Trump’s nomination of General James Mattis for Secretary of Defense will pave the way for an end to the madness in the military: no more social engineering to the detriment of troop readiness; no more pandering to homosexual, transgender, and feminist insanity. No more ignoring Muslims like Nidal Hasan or any of the others who have killed American soldiers on American soil, in the name of Islam. The military will regain its warrior culture. That is, after all, the only reason a military exists—to serve as guardians and protectors of the country.
It has been offered that General Mattis will not be able to undo all the harm already done. I suspect, however, simply reinstating the rules that all personnel must meet the same standards of performance will go a long way toward correcting the problems. Reinstate the rules that were in place before political correctness became the driving force behind all military decisions.
This action will likely winnow out the chaff and some will leave voluntarily. If others who do not pass muster will not leave voluntarily, they can be discharged. And in cleaning house, I hope someone has the good sense to move women to women-only units. This was how they served before rabid feminists and vengeful progressives launched their all-out assault on the military.
Intermingled with men, women are a major distraction from the male soldier’s job of training for and engaging in battle, and everybody in his right mind knows that. Leftists, however (in all their sick manifestations) are seldom ever in “right mind” when it comes to what is best for the nation.
Director Kallstrom observed that military personnel are exceedingly relieved they will now have a Commander-in-Chief and civilian leaders who have their back. Patriots, like them, rather than Barack Obama, whose aim has always been to take them down in the eyes of the world and to diminish their strength. Men have died because of Obama.
Donald Trump’s commitment to rebuild and revitalize the military is more than a good thing, it is a great thing.
These are indeed fascinating times for American patriots to be alive. Many never dreamed we would get to this point, poised to take our country back from counter-revolutionaries who are destroying our Christian representative republic. Owing to this turn of events, I am one happy camper, and I hope many more Americans feel the same way.
