“If you’re not a liberal at 20 you have no heart, if not a conservative at 40 you have no brain”~ Winston Churchill
Nature is a wonderful classroom sometimes. Take the Venus Fly Trap for instance. An amazing plant that eats flies by luring them into its jaws with a sweet nectar that the fly is unable to resist.
Now if I were the strategist of some radical ideology that I wanted to impose on a society, this example of nature would be the heart of my plan. Lincoln himself realized this:
“A drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gal. So with men. If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his sincere friend. Therein is a drop of honey which catches his heart, which, say what he will, is the highroad to his reason.”
There are two enemies that have thus breached the walls of our society and are in effect, already dissembling us from within. They are the radical ideologies of Islam and Progressivism which are equally incompatible with the constitutional laws of our society! And yet, we have become the fly in their trap because they’ve disarmed us with the nectar of “inclusiveness” which goes by many names like multiculturalism and coexistence…so sweet, so fragrant, flowery…and nice. What decent human being could resist?
I witnessed a young man’s greatest accomplishment in Scouting by being officially recognized as an Eagle Scout on Saturday. He was the only one of three who acknowledged the recent decision of the Boy Scouts of America to partially lift their ban and include gay boy scouts in his remarks. To his mind, it wasn’t about the violation of oath…it was about inclusiveness. He spoke his mind from his heart with honor. But, to echo Paul Harvey’s famous line, he was not equipped with the rest of the story.
Because the young man who has not been taught the story of Samuel here is as spiritually malnourished as the same young man who has been deprived of the story of our founding is academically malnourished. An uninformed decision, as nice as it may seem, is a bad decision. And you know that it is a bad decision because persecution and dishonor will be it’s fruit! There have been 20,000 victims of Islamic inclusiveness since 9/11 with the beheading of Lee Rigby making the most recent headless head-line. And all one needs to do is turn from Obama’s endless scandals to the Boy Scouts to behold the latest victim of Progressivism (in spite of 2/3 of scout leaders)…and the death of Honor. RIP
In the Progressive world, a public confession of sexual orientation constitutes honor and courage…as in the case of Jason Collins. Our young man wouldn’t recognize the names of Glen Doherty and Ty Woods to save his life. But the 33 Americans who are alive today because Glen Doherty and Ty Woods disobeyed stand-down orders to fly into harms way to rescue them in Benghazi will never forget their names. They fought with honor and courage to defend their position taking out dozens of the enemy, saving the lives of 33 Americans before they themselves were finally killed by mortar fire, waiting for the help that never came…and then they were lied about, covered up and forgotten…except by their families, 33 Americans and those of us paying attention of course. And their Commander in Chief who abandoned them to die practically wet his pants to recognize and honor the gay basketball player!
You see, the real problem with inclusiveness on Progressive terms is what gets excluded! They want a world where our young men look up to the man who sells himself to advance their agenda and sell his book. True honor and courage could constitute a real problem in the herd. In our zeal to be inclusive, we end up excluding the people and things we loved the most without realizing or caring…until one day we wake up and wonder, “Hey where did common sense go?”
Common Sense ~ If and when the American Fly wakes up to the false charms of the fly trap, she will be inclusive to all who are willing to check their multicultural BS at the door of assimilation into “One Nation Under God”! And if you are unable or unwilling to adhere to the values of a particular organization in a free society, then you are free not to join it! You are even free to start your own!! God Bless America! That includes you! 🙂
