I so *heart* Bill Whittle and sometimes listen to him just because. Anyway, so this video (in two parts) is pretty much standard Whittle wonderfulness; he discusses the way that progressives (who are actually communists, but that’s my stance, not Whittle’s) use the “sword” of critical theory and the “shield” of political correctness to undermine our culture, our society, and all that we hold dear. It’s truer than true.
Part 1 is the sad, scary part that we all need to know:
Part 2 is an overview of the seven fundamental beliefs of conservatives:
One of my favorite of his points is that the Bill of Rights does not grant us our rights to free speech, etc., but that it–much to BO’s chagrin–restricts the government’s ability to take away rights with which we were born, i.e. we were endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. The Bill of Rights merely protects those, so even if Congress passed a bill that took away, say, the rights protected by the First Amendment, and the president signed it into law, and the Supremes upheld it, we’d still have our First Amendment rights because they don’t come from Congress or the president or the Supreme Court. Period.
If we’re fighting the far left on the battleground of ideas, we win. Hands down. And they know it, that’s why we are being ridiculed, threatened, and pushed toward a manufactured “race” and “class” war. Only if we stoop to their level, react in anger and with violence, will we lose. And lose everything. Standing in truth and principle is the way to win this, and win we will.
