Good or Bad for the Jews

9/11 Plus 15; Proud to be a "Deplorable"

On the fourteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, I wrote that the terrorists are winning because the West is defeating itself,
[T]he ground for the defeat was prepared over many years especially with the progressive take-over of the universities, the education business, in general, the law profession, ever-growing government bureaucracies, and, of course, the media, to include Hollywood. I would note, in particular, that the pernicious doctrine of "cultural relativism" did much to sap the West's will to defend itself: We have, the Wise Ones tell us, no basis for judging whether one culture is better than another
Under the current calamity we have in the White House, the process of defeat was greatly accelerated and even celebrated. In fairness, however, we must note that even under Bush, whom I generally admired as a competent war leader, actions were taken to undermine the effectiveness of our efforts. While I think Bush--and certainly Cheney--understood the battle that commenced on 9/11 as part of the long war, the administration let itself get mau-maued by the purveyors of political correctness. One of the tragic errors made early in this latest battle was the promotion of the nonsense that we all should go about our lives as normal. Shopping, it was proclaimed, was a patriotic duty! If you don't shop the terrorists have won! This helped undermine, in my view, the seriousness of the message delivered by 9/11. 
An even greater mistake, a colossal one, in fact, was the administration's line that this was not a war against Islam, because "Islam means peace," apparently a confusion generated by the word "Islam" sounding similar to Salam (Peace).
Things have not improved since that anniversary. In fact, they have gotten worse. We are seeing a collapse of European civilization at a speed that just years ago would have been impossible to imagine. Here in the US, we have our government busily importing tens-of-thousands of "refugees" who adhere to a "religion" that openly advocates our conversion, enslavement, or death.

As I have said, way too many times, we are not at war, we are under attack. Islam continues its 1400-year assault on the West, and the assault has increased its OPTEMPO. Despite what our foolish President and SecState say, our enemies are not on the run. NATO is on life-support, and our enemies have outflanked us and are delivering increasingly lethal blows within our societies. They take advantage of our immigration and refugee laws, our tolerance and financial generosity, and our technology against us. They have learned to confuse our doltish leaders with concerns about an "anti-Muslim backlash," about avoiding "a war on Islam," and on and on. They have us questioning the words "Islamic terrorists" on monuments built to honor those killed by "Islamic terrorists." They have us apologizing for our beliefs and culture, and have made surrender a plausible if not the most preferable option open to us.

The Islamic war continues unabated aided by the progressives. We all must, for example, praise Obama as he makes Iran a nuclear power and passes billions of dollars to the Ayatollahs so they can continue their war or terror and provocation. There is, as I have said before, a Molotov-Von Ribbentrop Pact between Islam and progressivism aimed at destroying the West. All sorts of weapons are being used to do that besides truck bombs. We can deal with truck bombs; we have a harder time dealing with the systemic corrosion of our institutions and, above, of our will to resist.

And, now top of it all we get this: yesterday, Hillary Clinton referred to "half of Trump supporters" as belonging in a "basket of deplorables." She made this unifying remark while speaking to an elite group of Hollywood and Wall Street types who had paid about $60,000 each to hear these words of wisdom. (Note: I guess this is why she won't release the texts of her Goldman-Sachs' speeches?)

So "Deplorable" gets affixed to the lapels of ordinary people who want to see their country and our friends safe, secure, and prosperous? Well, Mrs Clinton, then just as I am proud to wear the title of Cold War Warrior, I am doubly honored to be awarded the "Deplorable" badge by the likes of you.

I wonder how many of the soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, CIA, and State officials killed in the battle with Islam since 9/11 you would consider "Deplorable"?


  1. "Mrs Clinton...I am proud to wear the title of cold war warrior, I am doubly honored to be awarded the "Deplorable" badge by the likes of you." -WLA

    ME TOO!
    And, I expect that baskets full of us "Deplorable" types will be delighted to show up at the polls on election day to ensure that this Hag and her Handlers are denied ACCESS to the American political levers of power!

    Hand Salute to all... "the soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, CIA, and State officials killed in the battle with Islam since 9/11"! Pray their bravery enforces our will to do our "Deplorable" duty the Best way we can, at the ballot box! 2

    On Watch~~~
    "Let's Roll"

    1. P.S.
      Uniform of the day: A "Cap'n Deplorable" full dress sweatshirt, with cargo pants of choice -- Covers and Footwear optional. ;) Ten-Hut! Sound Off! I don't know but I been told, this progressive K-rap is getting old 1-2-3-4, 1*2 -- 3*4

  2. Dear fellow Deplorables: I am not a Trump fan, but I want a secure, prosperous, and free America, too (reasons I will not vote for Shrillary Shroooooooo and never like the O.

    I read an article about a new "racism" in Denmark, in which the reporter talked with some Jens Jensen as an example of this "deplorable" trend. But, as I read about the middle-aged Jens Jensen, I developed the sneaky suspicion that the same character is probably proud of what his country did for its Jews in WWII, doesn't mind some very black African immigrants worshiping in the next pew in his Lutheran church, and has a just fine relationship with the proprietor of his local Chinese restaurant and is probably otherwise just fine with non-white immigrants who respect their new country and assimilate to at least its language and democratic traditions. My guess is that his "racism" is reserved for welfare spongers, people who want to insult or assault his granddaughter, and who throw axes at cartoonists.

    On this 9/11 anniversary, all I have to say to the issue of Islamophobia is that the Muslims didn't help their position by dancing in the streets and then trying to bribe then-mayor Rudy Giuliani into publicly saying that US support for Israel was to blame. They did themselves worse when the late and unlamented Usama Bin Laden first boasted about how "only Muslims" would be so brave to carry out such attacks,and then went whining (along with most of the Muslim world) that the attacks were the work of the JOOOOOOOOOOOOZ.

    Shrillary Shroooooooooooo for prison!

  3. And they say that Trump has a taste for his brogans! I suppose that Hellary thinks that the tens of thousands of out-of-work coal miners are also part of her "basket of deplorables." (Was I the only one to notice her new over-the-ears hairstyle at her recent presser?)

  4. An unguarded moment before a sympathetic crowd reveals what any reasonable observer has long suspected; and now everyone knows precisely what the DNC thinks of ordinary Americans. Hopefully, it will be point that shifts the tide.

    Politics aside; the woman is just plain awful. God help the West if she wins.

  5. "The Deplorable Diplomad" has a very nice ring to it!

    I have to say, I was sitting on the fence of respectability pretty much until Hillary offered me the 'deplorable basket'. That's where I'm sitting now.

    I'm telling you, I was on the fence. Kleptocrat vs Narcissist was a big fence-sitter for me and I wasn't really sure I was going to vote or for whom. But this is Hillary placing her shoulder squarely under my boot and helping me over into Camp Trump!

    1. Dude, kleptocrats make countries function like they do in Africa. We've got a narcissist in that office already.
      We need to put a check on the thievery and anti law-abiding citizen policies first. We can try to find less self-absorbed choices later.

  6. Since this attack on Trump's supporters was not an accident, done at least twice before, we now know what she thinks of hard working Americans that see our country in rapid decline. There are so many uniformed voters that will vote for her, I wonder how they can explain our country's decline across the board. They would be electing a criminal enterprise, but, hey, they'll get the stuff they want they think. If our country goes where Venezuela has gone, they will find lead instead of free stuff if those useful idiots think they are entitled to what others have worked for all their lives. I hear that type of conversation whereever I go among working class people. I find the patience of the deplorables wearing very thin.

  7. Hillary's "deplorable" speech tars all Trump supporters. One half as "deplorable", the other half as clueless schmucks who need her to survive (The other half, Clinton said, are disillusioned Americans who feel the "government has let them down." "Those are people we have to understand and empathize with," she said.

    It's all of one piece with her prior alt-right speech: She will demonize all opposition.

    Alinksy rule #12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

    1. It's so clear... no Hillary, we don't think the government has 'let us down'. Our hopes for government success were so low, that would be impossible. It's the government trying at what it shouldn't, that has failed, not 'seem to some to have failed'.

  8. It's OK. God punished her today with her "medical event." I think the end is approaching and he light at the end of the tunnel for her is the light on the approaching train.

    1. The Trump train ... representing us deplorables ...

  9. "I wonder how many of the soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, CIA, and State officials killed in the battle with Islam since 9/11 you would consider 'Deplorable'?"

    All of them, of course. She loathes the military, you recall.
