The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

The 12th Man

I hate to harp on it, but the subject just doesn't seem to get covered anywhere else.

At a football game, they call the fans the 12th man. The fans make noise to suppress the opposing team's communication. The cheer and drink and covort in the stands. They spend their money and and that money helps pay salaries. They may be overweight and out of shape, but the fans are a critical part of the franchise.

The Yankees are a force in baseball because they have a fan base that allows them to buy all the talent they want.

As a nation we are locked in a fight against terror. You may disagree with the reasoning or the strategy, but it doesn't matter. You aren't the elected Commander-In Chief. We are locked in a fight against terror and there will be a winner and a loser. Both sides can't have what they want.

Will is an aspect of conflict and the 12th man is an expression of will. Will is critical to a fight. The will to fight is as important as the means to fight. A team stripped of its will may as well be stripped of it's means.

While the military has carried the fight to the enemy, the 12th man in this country hasn't been doing his part. The Green Bay Packers have fans that will paint themselves colors and stand around half-naked in sub-zero temperatures. Our 12th man? The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS have been cheerleaders in this fight. Unfortunately, they have been cheerleaders for the other side. They have been hypercritical of US policy, strategy, tactics and execution while being careful to use words like fighter and insurgent instead of words like terrorist, Islamic fanatic and sectarian murder.

They have done everything they can to suppress the pro-America 12th man and to encourage and support the radical Islamist 12th man. There can only be one possible motivation. They want us to lose.

When you watch their programs and advertising, you are supporting their Anti-American efforts. When you subscribe to their paper, you are paying the idealogues that format the spin into palatable terms. You are paying for the distribution of the poison into the minds of a trusting public.

When you turn on the TV to those stations and pay for their printing, you are the 12th man for the other side. Think about that.
