Weekend Safety Brief 18 AUG 17

Bring it in – take a knee.

Meach, stop fidgeting like your Ritalin has not kicked in. Someone find Chop, last I saw him, he was at the Veteran’s Cemetery with his shotgun and a bottle of Papa’s Pilar, guarding the Confederate headstones.

I am gonna just come out and say this. I AM A LIBERAL. Before you get your silkies in a wad, let me explain. I am not a liberal like Bernie or Hillary. Nor am I a conservative like Gowdy and West. Along the same lines – I am not a RINO like McCain or a wildcard like the POTUS.

I am a CLASSIC liberal. I believe in the Republic, as defined in the Constitution, as an entity made to serve WE THE PEOPLE. I believe in LIBERTY – REAL Liberty that is only delineated by where the next person’s liberty begins. I believe in the rule of law – but that law should only be written and enforced when necessary. I think government should be manifested as small and at the lowest level possible.WSB 8-17 1

The outmoded and wholly incorrect usage of the political spectrum that is taught to you and that your children are indoctrinated to is a farce that is meant to divide us. It is meant to paint anyone to the “right” of JFK as a heartless capitalist Nazi. I submit to you that this chart displaying the political spectrum, considered to be the “standard” and from which the media, our “leadership,” academics and your friends draw their conclusions about politics is criminally wrong and damaging to who we are and how we see ourselves.

The fact is that Nazis (derived from the acronym for the National Socialist Worker’s Party in Germany) are very close in ideology to other Socialists – including so called “Democratic Socialists.” Indeed, they are only a short hop from Communists.

The problem comes in when we fail to teach the horrors of communism and its more palatable socialist brother. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics purged, murdered, disappeared, and starved FAR more people than the Nazis did – but they weren’t as direct and efficient as the Germans.

Take a look at the chart below and try to see where you stand according to how much government control of your life you want. Remember that security – whether physical, social, or economic – has a price. That price is Liberty.WSB 8-17 2

So let us have a real and honest discussion about motivation, control and where our “two party system” sits right now. From my POV the Democrats and Republicans sit side by side on this chart, and most are as corrupt as the next, not really caring about anything but making money, and staying in power.

Do we think that our body politic really cares about what happened in Charlottesville? Hell no – all they care about is pandering to their base to get re-elected. Do they care about “Universal Healthcare” one way or another? NO – they have the very best healthcare that your tax dollars can by – FOR LIFE. Do they give one good American shit about your education? No brothers and sisters – they care about keeping your ignorant asses fighting a war that ended in 1865 and in which the people that fought it reconciled with each other as early as 1898 when they went to war against Spain – all of them WEARING U.S. BLUE UNIFORMS.

The list can go on, but it is Friday, and you degenerates just want to watch the burned out old Boxer fight the Bantam rooster from Ireland, drink beer, and chase pussy. Just think about it and talk about it some. Forget – for just a little while – about race, religion, and all of the shit that they use to keep us from really understanding what is going on. Think about how much you talk about “Liberty” and how much you are willing to sacrifice for your “Security.”

Roll in Fire Teams.

Don’t drive drunk.

Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles, which every man of every faith can embrace.

Don’t beat your dog or your wife.

For the god’s sake – stay the hell away from protests of ANY kind.

See you at 0600 on Monday for PT.

Now GTFO before I smoke the lot of ya.

Platoon Sergeants, take charge of your platoons.

    1SGT – – Your chart on the political spectrum is one that the communists and leftist teach in colleges and which most folks assume is accurate. But it really isn’t. To be an accurate chart, the loation of the Nazis should be just slightly to the right of the communists, but still on the far left side of the chart !!

    I agree that it is confusing; let me try to explain it to your and your readers:

    1. The meaning of the name”NAZI” as referring to the German political party was the “Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei” – the National Socialist German Worker’s Party. Note the word SOCIALIST.

    2. All communists are SOCIALISTS.Remember that our Cold War enmy was the USSR, Union of Soviet socialist Republics. There is that word again, SOCIALIST !!

    3. Hitler brought the Nazi party to power in 1933 after many years of street fights and firefights against the German communists. Yes German communists and Nazis were sworn enemies ! Nazis were fascists and the soviets were fascists. Fascism is just a militarized form of socialism where a dictator rules. Some might clim tht Stlin was not a dicttor but in reality he was. Fascism and (Marxist) socialism are sisters. Close sisters. Both are fundamentally about controlling the economy – both are socialists.

    4. Just because Fascists like the Nazis are enemies of the communists does not mean that you have to be shown on a chart on opposite sides. So the chart should not have fascists on the right. Perhaps “Anarchists” might be who holds the extreme right since they, in theory, do not want any government at all.

    5. Stefan Molyneux had as a guest Dinesh D’Souza, who was talking about his new book: The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left. D’Souza digs into some really interesting history, and how the Nazis were just slightly to the right of the communists. Here’s the 37 minute interview:

    Please take the time to learn that Nazis and Communists are all socialists. The Nazis think it is okay for the state to let some approved elites own large businesses as long as those businesses do what they are told. True Communists believe that all property must be owned and managed by the state. Both are militaristic totalitarian governments who oppress their citizens and apply brutality toward any person who disagrees with the party line.

    You really need to watch the 37 minute video so as to better understand how closely similar these two horrible belief systems are in treatment of their fellow citizens and others.

      Sir, I respectfully request that you re-read the article and see that there are two charts presented. The article agrees with you wholeheartedly. Have a great day! AATW!

    1SGT – – Mea Culpa….

    I read the top half of the article and fired off the response while my head was up my Fourth Point Of Contact.

    Still, the 37 minute video is really educational and goes into the history of the development of Nazi political theory and its connections to the Democrat Party (I call them”DemonicRats”). The video is still essential info for us fully understand these different political views.

    The interviewee, Dinesh D’Souza, was pulled up into the Reagan White House from 1987-88 to be a researcher and policy analyst. A Christian immigrant from India, he sees America in a way that we lifelong citizens do not.

    Sorry to cut and run. The Wife has called me for dinner….

    Rangers Lead The Way !!

    Spot on as usual 1SG. Our Country is on the edge of conflict, real conflict not a bunch of wannabe thugs picking on weaker folk at demonstrations when others aren’t close enough to help out. Clearly not combat trained, no buddy teams there. Sad days when the youth of today yearn to be Communists. They haven’t a clue.
    Be safe, God loves you and yours regardless of your sordid past. 🙂
