Law and Order Teacher’s Take….

As some of you know, Law & Order Teacher, one of our Comment Buddies here, is someone I’ve admired greatly for a few years now.  He wrote the following and posted it on Facebook.  I believe it truly captures what many of us (especially me!) feel about what has gone on in America and what’s happening today, and he was kind enough to allow me to post it:

“This crazy and Ill-advised War on history must stop. We have to realize that while slavery existed in the US, the Founders created our republic at their own risk. They fought against colonial tyranny and created a form of government that allows its citizens to flourish with hard work. Our country has taken steps to eradicate injustice that no other country was able to do. We fought a terrible war over slavery. Our Bill of Rights is a true blessing for its citizens. Instead of trying to obliterate our history we should celebrate our successes in human rights while we still strive to form a more perfect union.”

EXCELLENT.   This is the kind of thing Trump speech writers ought to include in many of his speeches…remind Americans how great we are, and how America deserves not to obliterate our greatness in a lame attempt to be just like other countries lest we seem the best (which apparently bothers a lot of people) , but to celebrate it and strive for more.

THANKS, L&O!

    Agreed. And Santayanna just wasted his breath, ’cause the Civil War, prohibition, and the EEOC taught us nothing . . . except that white men, sippin whiskey, and meritocracy are Satan’s tools.

    One tends to forget Barack Obama’s miraculously accepted book “Dreams From my Father.” People raved and electric tingles went up their legs (even in polite company). It is a book the hawkers claim propelled Obama into national politics; a “lyrical, unsentimental, and powerfully affecting memoir.” Not too many people at that age produce memoirs, but that’s another issue. What no one seems to realize that the dreams of Obama Sr. was to transform Kenya into a Stalinist state —which he certainly helped to achieve. Note: today, Kenya is one of the most corrupt countries on the African continent. Barack Hussein Obama arrived on our political doorstep promising “fundamental change” to America. He most assuredly did achieve that, but it has not benefitted us one bit.

    Part of Obama’s package was the continuation of a trend in this country that began in the 1960s —an intentional effort through public education to revise American history. This effort is no “one-trick pony.” It involves a myriad of strategies designed to erase events, modify others, and offer as facts the unsupported opinions of people with a progressive (communist) agenda. Howard Zinn was one of the leaders of this movement, a man who affected both Obama and Hillary Clinton. What we see going on in America today is the result of this effort: removing Civil War Era statues, popular (but far from grass-roots) demands that states change their flags, removing every connection to the Civil War, all the while spreading the myth of white oppression. None of these things stand up to the actual facts of history, but the program appears to be gaining ground.

    Vladimir Lenin once remarked, “Give us the child for 8 years and I will give you a Bolshevik forever.” He was right. Change a nation’s past and you change the nation’s present; you control its future. You change the psychology of the people, moving from a belief in American exceptionalism to a people who are willing to apologize for things that happened 150-200 years ago. Change a nation’s history, you change the country’s culture and their value and belief systems. This has been the communist mission for America all along, but since most parents pay no attention to what is going on inside our public-school classrooms, there are no voices to protest, no voices in defense of the true America, no voices demanding a return to teaching factual American history. All that is left is a bunch of brainless Bolsheviks who at some point in their future will begin to vote in local, state, and national elections.

    Kudos to L&TO. His wise suggestion has no doubt resulted in leftist heads popping all over Facebook.

    Thank you, Z. To be writing among the intellectuals on your site is walking in tall cotton. Oops, tall grass? We can’t say cotton now can we. I spent my life in the military, the police, and teaching. In each I felt the need to further the greatness of America to any who would listen. It is truly an exceptional country.

    “Satan’s Tools”…Bocopo….isn’t it amazing?

    Mustang, knowing publishing a little as I do, I remember laughing at a very prestigious pub company printing books by a relative unknown who’d barely had enough years to write an autobiography. Were he White…? 🙂

    MY VERY BIGGEST QUESTION ALWAYS IS HOW A HOWARD ZINN AND OTHERS COULD ATTRACT STUDENTS WITH HATING AMERICA AND…OTHERWISE….MAKE STUDENTS BALK AND PROTECT AMERICA’S HISTORY.
    WHAT CAUSES ONE GROUP TO BUY THE NEGATIVITY, WHAT CAUSES OTHERS TO DESPISE THE THOUGHT THAT ANYBODY THINKS AMERICA IS ACTUALLY THE WORST COUNTRY, NO DOER OF GOOD AT ALL.

    THIS IS THE RUB; ONE EITHER LOVES AND UNDERSTANDS THE FOUNDING AND THE FUTURE BUILT ON THAT FOUNDATION……………..OR ONE HATES ANYTHING ABOUT AMERICA AND TRUDGES THROUGH THIS LIFE (LIKE DUCKY, COME TO THINK OF IT) DOING NOTHING BUT COMING UP WITH THE SLIGHTEST THING TO INSULT IT.

    PERSONALITY DIFFERENCES? STRONGER TEACHERS? TEACHERS COWED BY THE LEFT INTO TEACHING ONLY HATE?

    So sad to read Trump, again, has the need to call Tillerson such stupid, immature names. All Tillerson had to say was that Putin had out prepared the president.

    “Rex Tillerson, a man who is ‘dumb as a rock’ and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State, made up a story (he got fired) that I was out-prepared by Vladimir Putin at a meeting in Hamburg, Germany,” he tweeted. “I don’t think Putin would agree. Look how the U.S. is doing!”

    ALl Trump had to do, if he had to say ANYTHING, was “Mr. Tillerson has his thoughts, I have mine. I’m sorry he feels the need to insult me, but I’d have to say Putin wouldn’t agree with him . The US is doing pretty well in comparison!”

    I was thinking, there should be impeachment proceedings, but not against our President, against Democrats in Congress for not doing their jobs. What have they done to help the country the past 2 years? NADA! While Trump has done more than any president despite all the flak from the left. They should all be required to return their unearned pay and benefits, then be fired! (good luck!).

    Well said, Mustang and LAOT! Howard Zinn thought the world was a worse place because of America. I heard him say it myself. As for O, he published TWO memoirs at such a young age, and another one is coming. When I went to vote I saw a polling person clutching his book and talking about it with such excitement on her face.

    Why does one lash out at the country and another who sees the same country does not? Why does one work on himself first to fix issues, and another only points the finger to others? Expectations and a realistic assessment of life. Not letting the ideal be the enemy of the good. You can rail against, e.g., the British colonial system (there’s plenty there to rail at), but you can’t deny, that they swept all the pirates out of Borneo and for quite awhile the locals had peace and security to go about their lives.

    DUCKY. “You shouldn’t mention my name when I’m censored.”

    Ducky: allow me to respond; It’s your fault I had to switch blog providers, so TRUST me, I’m fine with mentioning your name; it’s the least you can leave me, since the last thing I wanted to do was go to WordPress, which is the only provider allowing keeping commenters out.. Censoring is removing something or someone whose content is objectionable….I didn’t agree with you 90% of the time, but I’d have allowed it had you not been unkind and constantly objectionable in every way…. I warned you so many times and you still had to be highly insulting to my readers.

    Please don’t tell me what I shouldn’t do at my blog. You shouldn’t have been so unpleasant for so long. You should be apologizing to me.

    It is 5:00 PM EDT and I am just catching up on my blog reading. Wow! I have been missing a lot by sleeping in until almost noon. But, I was still reading at 4:00 AM. Gotta learn how to change my schedule back to normal.

    LaOT verbalized what many of us had been thinking for some time. I had just never put the beginnings of the USA on a time line that showed our country was born in the golden age of colonialism. We were victims! Nobody seems to remember the European colonialists who controlled and abused African nations, Asian nations, South American nations, along with India and the East Indies, and South East Asia. For goodness sake, we are the good guys!

    Slavery was a lingering institution that had its beginnings elsewhere. It was difficult to eradicate world wide, and is still practiced in some of the Muslim countries. It was Western Civilization that abolishes slavery, but the USA was later in the game because of the plantation economy south. That problem was removed by the Civil War.

    LaOT mentioned the talent on this blog. I just finished reading some of Bocopro’s stuff. He writes really good stuff. Mustang’s military histories on Fix Bayonets are well written and fascinating. It’s hard to beat those guys when it comes to opinions and writing.

    Thanks, Z, for hosting this blog.

    AFTER TRUMP TOLD BARR TO DECLASSIFY INFO ON SPYING ON HIM IN 2016, I REMOTED BACK TO CNN A FEW TIMES TO SEE IF THEY WERE MENTIONING IT…………NOPE.
    A WHILE LATER? NOPE
    EVEN CHECKED THAT B*TCH MADCOW……….MENTIONING IT? NOPE!

    HEH HEH!!!

    ALSO, there was Howard Stern on CNN with Cooper saying that he knew FOR SURE that Trump’s run for the presidency was all about getting publicity…NBC was not going to go further with THE APPRENTICE, etc. so Trump thought running for pres would help them pick his show up again.
    Problem with THAT is, Stern’s stupid because a presidential candidate can’t HAVE a show on TV simultaneously with running!
    Oh, yes, and Stern says Trump needs psychotherapy and he didn’t want to win (which I happen to know isn’t far from the truth, from what my friend’s best friend who was IN Trump’s suite the night of the election intimated from Trump’s utter shock..he hadn’t even written his acceptance speech until hearing it on the news!)…

    it was hideous to hear Trump’s “FRIEND” selling his book by insulting Trump so much…..as if Stern NEEDS MORE MONEY!?
