    I don’t think JC would be cool with Washington DC either.

    • H_B

      JC? John Carter? I’m drawing a blank here…

          Ah, I was going through all the Founding Fathers.

          In my defense, you did shift focus between those two word balloons.

        John Carter, of Virginia, a clean-limbed fighting man? He ended up on Mars, not worshiping the Roman deity of War. But we are being drawn into Mars’s field. Let’s hope we manage to go in the style of Athena, and not Mars.

      • Mike Mulligan

        I believe that JC was the main Founding Father, GW, TJ, SA, et al were the apostles

        • Well said, indeed. He was, for sure. But as the enemy infiltrated, He has been forced aside.

    • Right! JC wasn’t PC with anything – said what he meant.

    • Pamela

      JC would have had the whips out, then taken a flame thrower to the place.
      He was not politically correct and I suspect he had a rather expansive, salty vocabulary in castigating those who were dumber than pig excrement.

    And the islamic pedophiles, hang homosexuals or throw them off higher roofs, among other ways of murder. Yet, they are highly known to bugger boys or any convenient animal.
    Something more than AC/DC.

    • HA, I remember the old joke when women started coming to P-3 squadrons (my old stomping ground…Lovin’ Eleven forever!)

      “what is the little room at the front of the plane where the pilots sit?”
      “the cockpit?”
      “Nope, not anymore…now it’s the box office.”

      This of course was before the Tailhook witch hunt.

    In re MasterDiver’s post above:

    What the hell? The message should be “send me your best pilots”, period. The Thunderbirds (and the Blue Angels and the other demonstration teams) are supposed to represent the best, to demonstrate the skills and precision of the respective services. There is no place for PC in that mix. You wonder why there is a shrinking pool of applicants. Easy. You are loading the deck against your best people by emphasizing “diversity,” whatever the heck that is supposed to mean. Why apply when you are not going to be judged on your ability first. When you make the most important indicator of hiring preference gender and/or skin color, you send a very stark message. “If you ain’t in the preference group, your chances are limited to start with.” When I was hiring for a highly skilled and highly visible position, I selected the best qualified officer available. Most were men, but several happened to be women. Their sex meant nothing; their skin color meant nothing; their ability meant everything. Anything less is BS.

    • JTC

      “There is no place for PC…” Period.

      And everything else you said so well applies to everything, Bill.

      Which is exactly the point of this un-PC pro-JC post.

    • Norm

      Paragraphs please.

    • B Woodman

      Not to mention that when you start applying diversity over ability, lives are endangered. The first diversity non-ability pilot in the show teams, I resign. My life is too precious to waste on crap.

    • Such a perfect response. PC is designed to kill us. Diversity above all is going to kill us. Best qualified, screw the gender involved, is the only valid qualifier.

    • Bill G

      Amen.
      I have to wonder who got to the General to get this message from him.

      • MasterDiver

        Obozo has been purging the ranks of the true leaders, in favor of the carreerists who only look for the quickest way to their next star. If Le Reign wants to impose PC in place of ability, send out the directive. If he wants to drop leaflets over a target 30 minutes before the strike, line up the trash sortie, and when the BDA comes in showing nearly no targets hit, blame the drivers. Thank God I retired. My last four years under Obozo saw more racial and gender preference imposed on the rank and file than ever.

        It’s kind of like that old Johnny Hart “Wizard of Id” cartoon, when the King went on a goodwill tour of neighboring kingdoms. When Sir Rodney asked the Duke how long he’d be gone, the reply was “Two hours ought to exhaust his supply”.

        A lot of people have pretty much used up their lifetime’s supply of goodwill- and patience- with supposedly morally superior “enlightened, mystical” foreign cultures.

        Not to mention those who bill and coo about them here in the States.

      Pamela,
      I LIKE the way you think.

      • Pamela

        Mr Woodman

        There is civilized in dealing with most people. Then there is old school because that is the only language some people understand, and in some ways, respect and fear.
        If they don’t respect you, make them fear you.

        Be what makes the bump in the night run for cover praying for dawn and salvation.

  • Iconoclast

    All levity aside, Chris / Zed nailed it. Our greatest enemy is not the like of the neurotic N. Korean munchkin, the semi-megalomaniac Putin, or even the mouth-foaming jizzlamic savages. It is the 5th Column of the dhimmicraps & associated quislings who constantly tear at the fabric of our Republic.

    • eon

      Our leaders and “social lions” are sort of like the characters on the old “L.A. Law” show.

      They spend most of their time admiring themselves for being smarter, more sophisticated, more enlightened, prettier, and just plain “better” than everybody else.

      We are ruled by hip, post-modern, metrosexual hustlers who think having a buffed gym-rat body, a plastic surgeon’s masterpiece face, and a six-figure-cost wardrobe equals “leadership”.

      Which handily explains Rubio, but in no way explains Hillary! or Leon Trotsky Junior.

      Well, I suppose Hillary! could be the Evil Queen in Snow White, with her whole “mirror, mirror, on the wall” thing.

      Although she really reminds me more of Norma Desmond in Sunset Blvd (1950).

      Cruella de Vil, maybe?

      I betcha that quote applies to Mr. Muir hisownself too. 🙂

  • B Woodman

    “You can’t just attack Muslims in America”
    Maybe, maybe not.
    But if you can provoke them just that little bit (and it doesn’t take much to provoke a quoranimal into attacking), then you can always claim self defense, and I-feared-for-my-life, when the ambulance carts the body away to the morgue.
    Just make sure that YOUR story is the only one told.

      The sun rising in the east is enough to provoke your average muzzie…

    • Kafiroon

      Since Morlocks are even more perpetually outraged than our PC twits, that is the main reason for all thinking people to carry.

      • interventor

        Need to find a way to enrage muzzies against PC crowd . A twofer no matter the outcome.

    • RegT

      Doesn’t matter if you are the only one standing – and telling the story – at the end. The media will tell the story _their_ way, and anyone who harms a jihadi (aka muslim) in this country will be vilified in the press. Don’t ever let that stop you, but be prepared to be raked over the coals, no matter how justified your response.

    The whole purpose of PC. Only one story gets told because all else is hate speech.

  • Bill G

    I’m not sure about the sun rising, but considering that there were riots over the perception that a margarine ad showed a swirl that was a holy symbol I won’t begin to argue the point.
    Naomi will not have to do anything that even the most PC Prostituter, er, Prosecutor can call a Provoking Act since she’s dealing with a group that considers Breathing While Christian or Jewish to be a capital offence.

  • Browncoat

    I’m going to take this space to ‘memorialize’ the man who I first heard use the term ‘political correctness’. His name was David Thibodeaux and I heard him speak at a church in Sulphur, Louisiana in 1994. He was an English professor at USL (now known as University of Louisiana-Lafayette) and had recently published, ‘Political Correctness: The Cloning of the American Mind’. He was a true conservative and I believe this portion from Wikipedia demonstrates just that:

    Bill Decker of the Lafayette Daily Advertiser described Thibodaux thus:

    “[He was] a movement conservative who might not appreciate the appropriation of Democrat Al Smith’s nickname. But Thibodaux was a happy warrior. [He] taught English at ULL, took on mamby-pamby language and knee-jerk liberals in a pair of books, the latest of which is called Beyond Political Correctness: Are There Limits to This Lunacy? At the time of his death, he was locked in the battle for which he may be remembered most: his duel with U.S. District Judge Richard Haik over school desegregation. Thibodaux fought Haik every way he knew how.

    “His opposition was about the proper role of the judiciary, not about indifference to the kids. His push for reduced class sizes, lovingly detailed in half a dozen conversations over the years, was about improving education in Lafayette schools that serve low-income students. And his biggest allies in the fight against the court-ordered desegregation measures were the two black school board members, [Democrats] Ed Sam and Rickey Hardy, who resented the closure of schools in black neighborhoods.”

    Mrs. Thibodaux told the Daily Advertiser that her husband “gave everything that he could. He was the only person I knew that lost sleep over someone else’s children.”

    PC = MC
    Marxist Culturalization

    Is it any wonder that the school aged Americans all think Socialism is “cool”?
    They have been inculcated with Marxist theory for most of their supposed Education.

    Our experiment with a Republic style government is nearing its end.
    To have our children actually vote into being the same system of governance that our fathers fought and died to end in Europe is an ironic end to the only experiment with a democratic Republic yet known to humankind.

    The problem to me is that there is no one person that could be removed and that would end the assault on our Bill of Rights et al.
    I would willingly sacrifice my life to remove the problem but alas it isn’t possible.

    “We have met the Enemy, and he is us.” Pogo /Walter Kelly

  • John Greer

    Of course our problem is the inculcation persists long after the Theory has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be 100% bovine scatology.
    The only light I see on the horizon is the promise of introducing Critical Thinking into the schools.
    Unfortunately that is only a promise.

    • RegT

      We had it back in the sixties in our high school. It was called Critical Analysis. Great class. It would be banned now, even if it existed in our schools, because it would interfere with the indoctrination.

      You are going to have to have local communities take back the control of the schools from the Federal gov’t before you can change any of it.

    • S Hooks

      The problem is what we’ve had in the schools, for some time now, is Critical Theory. It sounds at first like Critical Thinking and Critical Analysis, but it ain’t…
