The concepts of ‘Left’ and ‘Right’ go back to the French Revolution, where the extreme Jacobins were on the left side of the Chamber and their opponents on the Right. The Left like to forget that it was the Jacobins who started executing anyone who opposed them and who instituted the terror – of course they do, because their modern descendants do the same – in actuality where they can (China, Cambodia, Russia, Vietnam to name a few), and in kind where they do not have the power to kill.
By ‘in kind’ I mean something we see pervasively in the media – that is a mind-set and a bias toward the Left. One amusing example came from the period after Gorbachev’s fall when old style Stalinists tried to unseat Yeltsin – and the BBC here referred to them as ‘the Right. Really? These guys were unreconstructed Stalinists and they were ‘Right wing’? Yes, sure, and I am the Dali Lama because I have a spiritual side to me. Bom for the MSM, ‘Right wing’ is a synonym for evil. It is well-known that all Right-wingers would, if left to it, have all women back in the kitchen baking bread nine to five and producing a baby a year. I know this is true, I deduced it from reading lots of MSM comments about the Right. Problem is no Right winger I know matches that caricature.
It goes along with another odd idea – that we’re all fundamentalist Christians. Well, OK, I never met a fundamentalist Christian (coming back to that in a moment) who was a Leftist, so I can see where the Left get that view, but it ain’t so Joe. I am what in American terms would be called an Episcopalian, Neo is a Lutheran, but other conservatives are Catholics, Baptists, you name it, and many are not Christian at all. It is perfectly possible to be a good person without being a Christian, and to be a conservative and to be an atheist But I guess because Leftists see Christianity as one of their enemies, they like to lump all those who oppose them in the same basket – makes it simpler for their hate to deal with.
But what, when we are at home, is a fundamentalist Christian? I believe Christ was the Son of God, that He died on the Cross for our sins, and that He was raised from the dead on the Third day – oh, and the whole of the rest of the Creed. If that makes me a fundie, bring it on, but I guess some fundies might not agree.
Those of us on the Right must resist these attempts by the Left to pigeon-hole us as divide us. I am proud to have what I regard as fundies as my friends, they are also my allies against those on the Left who want to reingineer our society.
I am a woman, I believe in marrying a man and having a baby in the usual (rather pleasurable) way. If some goofball wants to come into the locker room whilst I am changing claiming that though he looks like a man he feels like a woman, I’m happy to tell him he’s getting nowhere near this gal. If that makes be ‘transphobic’, get over it Massachusetts.
As with Christians in their dealings with aggressive secularists, we on the Right need to identify our real enemy and load up against them – we can save the bitching amongst ourselves until we have won. Ask yourself – what would Winston have done?
