MSM: Everything wrong in the world: fault of conservatives, Christians and Jews
As if you didn’t know, America is under siege. The progressives (communists) and radical Islam despise our American culture and everything it stands for. Lead by the immaculate Obama, and his “fundamental transformation,” they see America’s vulnerability and are taking advantage of it as often as possible. How did the “Occupy movement” come to believe the nonsense that they espouse? Our society is spoiled, gullible and apathetic–not good adjectives to describe a country known for its headstrong determination.
One of western civilization’s most grievous character defects is materialism-it weakens the heart and dulls the mind. As our culture has become increasingly secularized, and we have distanced ourselves from God, we have made having things our gauge for happiness. Many individuals in Western societies “do”; so they can “have”; so they can “be”; when they should “be”; then “do”; and then “have.” Be comfortable with who you are instead of shunning and dismissing our Christian roots and values. This is the unspoken truth about the success of the Tea Party; they are comfortable with their faith and confident in their being. They do not need the accolades of the sycophantic and perverted news media.
This life is a test for the next. We love and fear our Creator. This is why conservatives are generally more successful and satisfied with their life experiences than liberals. Has anyone ever seen a happy liberal? Liberals are angry 24/7. There is always something to be pissed off about; and even though the problem could be more quickly remedied by looking in a mirror, they usually resort to blaming those of us who believe in Jesus Christ and respect the Constitution. In the progressive mind, everything is the fault of them crazy Jesus people!
So, because the progressives are not happy and uncomfortable with themselves, we are supposed to abandon our beliefs? Of course! If a conservative doesn’t like a television or radio program, they change the channel. But if a liberal doesn’t like a particular program, then the show must be taken off the air! They don’t believe in God–so no one else should be allowed to either. Then they turn around and proclaim to be the purveyors of free speech, as long as that speech agrees with them.
Karl Marx said, “The enemy of being is having.”

In a recent article, posted at Salon, Thursday, May 3, 2012, the left attempts to equate faith and conservatism with mental illness. Interestingly enough, he cites a book written by moon-bat liberal author/blogger Chris Mooney called: “The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Don’t Believe in Science (or Many Other Inconvenient Truths).” I commented about this several months ago in an article I wrote for TRP; “Kool-Aid, Cover-up, Chromosomes and the Cooling Earth …“. Mooney:
“… there might be a combination of genes acting together that somehow predispose us to have particular politics, presumably through their role in influencing our brains and thus our personalities or social behaviors.”

Conservatives’ paranoid alternate reality can be explained by their brain chemistry–and their media choices
“Consider for a moment just how terrifying it must be to live life as a true believer on the right. Reality is scary enough, but the alternative reality inhabited by people who watch Glenn Beck, listen to Rush Limbaugh, or think Michele Bachmann isn’t a joke must be nothing less than horrifying.
Research suggests that conservatives are, on average, more susceptible to fear than those who identify themselves as liberals. Looking at MRIs of a large sample of young adults last year, researchers at University College London discovered that “greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala” ($$). The amygdala is an ancient brain structure that’s activated during states of fear and anxiety. (The researchers also found that “greater liberalism was associated with increased gray matter volume in the anterior cingulate cortex” – a region in the brain that is believed to help people manage complexity.)
That has implications for our political world. In a recent interview, Chris Mooney, author of “The Republican Brain,”explained, “The amygdala plays the same role in every species that has an amygdala. It basically takes over to save your life. It does other things too, but in a situation of threat, you cease to process information rationally and you’re moving automatically to protect yourself.” [...]
This article was reviewed by John Sexton, and he makes some poignant observations:
“… Mooney’s description once again reinforces the idea that the amygdala is primitive and only of use in situations where panic would cloud rational thought. In fact, the amygdala mediates memory, facilitates emotional learning and apparently helps people identify the emotional states of others. There is even research suggesting amygdala size correlates with the size of a person’s social network, i.e. how many friends you have.
But what’s really missing from Mooney’s description is any sense the the amygdala is an important part of the human personality, one we definitely don’t want to live without. Because, as it turns out, there’s plenty of credible scientific research which suggests that having a shrunken or damaged amygdala may be what makes some people psychopaths. Yes, I said psychopaths, as in people without fear or conscience.
In a 2009 study of 27 psychopaths, researchers found “deformations in another part of the brain called the amygdala, with the psychopaths showing a thinning of the outer layer of that region called the cortex and, on average, an 18-percent volume reduction in this part of brain.” [...]
Mooney’s contention may, in fact, have some validity, if he were to look in the mirror.
Yes, indeed, conservatives must be suffering from some horrible chromosome deficiency. This is a truly disgusting and wholly arrogant premise that I find infuriating, to say the least. The malcontent Left simply cannot be placated with any amount of common sense, nor can they accept the concept that anyone could possibly think differently from them; thus, one can only assume that Holland and Mooney would be perfectly comfortable with a policy of interning conservatives and Christians into “reeducation camps” where they can be “repaired,” in order that we might be taught to agree with them and their superior thought process.
Well, I have some news for those who might think this idea is in our society’s “best interest.” You will never change my mind. I don’t care if you burn me alive at the stake. I will never deny my belief in Jesus Christ and the natural laws descended from God. Furthermore, I will not turn the other cheek. I am up in your grill and you will not silence me. If you kill me, it will only make my spirit stronger; and I will remain to bring you down. I will be holding open the gates of hell for you upon your arrival therein.
This kind of thinking has spilled over into the classroom–where our young are indoctrinated into the liberal mindset. You have to listen to this utterly despicable video (mostly audio)–a teacher reprimands a student for criticizing Barack Obama:
* * *
Teacher yells at student because of a question he asked about Obama!
This is an amazing recording. Not only is the teacher a hypocritical poltroon, it illustrates her complete ignorance and utter lack of discipline–the permitted use of foul language is confirmation thereof. This is the quality level of instruction that the teacher’s unions claim deserve more pay and pension benefits. The teacher has since been suspended.
This is not the America our Founding Fathers envisioned. We will speak for ourselves and stand up for our right to do so. I was encouraged to hear some of the students in this class room stick up for themselves and debate their obviously biased teacher. The intolerance of the Left (something they constantly accuse conservatives of) is really quite telling. They find it impossible to find a way to win in the arena of ideas; so they resort to every other form of ridicule and ad hominem in order to discredit conservative contentions. The fact that they have perverted our education system with their doctrine is evidence that they could not otherwise advance their cause on merit, and the same is true for the news media.
When we stand on the courage of our convictions they find it nearly impossible to make any headway. The Left has already wrought much damage and nearly spent us into oblivion. We have NOTHING to apologize for; they have everything to apologize for. Their so called good intentions have done nothing except pave a direct route to the gates of hell.
The inability of the Left to accept the word “no” and the concept of “individual responsibility” belies their infantile demeanor. They are like little children as Bill Cosby illustrates in this timeless skit:

Remember Joshua Holland’s contention:
“Consider for a moment just how terrifying it must be to live life as a true believer on the right. Reality is scary enough, but the alternative reality inhabited by people who watch Glenn Beck, listen to Rush Limbaugh, or think Michele Bachmann isn’t a joke must be nothing less than horrifying.”
The only thing that the Right is terrified of is the damage the Progressive Left and the Democrat Party has already wrought upon the Land of the Free. The Left and you progressive proponents are the joke. It would be funny were it not so tragic. You have made a mess so big, and so nasty, that we will have to work through several election cycles in order to clean it up, if we can clean it up at all. The hopeless, Godless, feckless, malcontent, Marxist, misfit, mental midgets cannot even get both hands on their own centers of gravity, yet they claim expert superiority over every aspect of our lives. Conservatives do not want the things socialists want. We don’t want to be the same. We accept the fact that life isn’t always fair and that “fairness” cannot be imposed! It is time for you on the Left to wake up and realize that conservatives are actually trying to help you all out of a much larger problem headed your way in the very near future.
I’m not looking to offend anyone, but there comes a time when you need to stick up for yourself and your neighbors – be aware. Nobody likes to think the worst, but I can guarantee that the worst is thinking about you. God only helps those who help themselves and I am quite sure it is alright with the Lord if you protect your own well being. God bless America and all who pledge allegiance.
