What the Trump Is Going On???

trump4n-1-web

When Trump took the stage as a Republican desiring the nomination for Presidency, I was intrigued. What Trump is was a mystery. What shows is showmanship, but why does one of the most successful independent businessmen this world has ever seen want to take on the Presidency of the USA? In Trump’s case, the only consideration is personal. What really is in this thing for the Trump? For me, the skepticism level was very high. Some sort of showboating going on here… But then…

Trump takes the stage literally and effectively during the Republican presidential debates and behaved in ways quite atypical of the typical politician. Saying things one would expect to destroy his possibilities. Trump says things which the media and the analysts interpret as racist or offensive, but his popularity soars. Something is going on here, and it damn sure is different. My intrigue evolved into a serious curiosity… because…

This country, founded on the principles of independence, freedom and the exercise of responsibility, is crumbling into a cesspool of whining, crying, “it’s not faaaiiiirrrrrr” liberalism. Here comes a gentleman who embodies many of the very principles the whiners are whining about. He’s fabulously… no, ridiculously wealthy. He’s a capitalist. He says what he wants to say without any apparent regard for hurt feelings. He has a bizarre hairdo. He has a sense of humor. Most importantly, when he runs into a problem, he conquers it… but…

Where does one go to find out who Donald Trump really is? Turns out that in the case of Donald Trump the record is clear and the path is easy to follow. Unlike our current pRESIDENT, who we know very little about. We don’t don’t even know for sure if he’s an American or even if his wife is a woman. Donald Trump is anything but, transparent. He has a clear and easy to follow record of accomplishment. What we don’t find in the investigation, is a history of dishonesty. His business relationships and his relationship with those he employs is positive and productive… however…

Donald Trump is also an author, and as an author myself, I can testify the the truth of a soul can be seen in his writing. So I’ve been reading, and yes I’m impressed. Here’s my recommendation for those who would like to look inside the head of a multi-billionaire striving for… for… well…

Read the book! “Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again” It resonates with a rational that is impossible to deny. It brings to my mind remembrance of the words of some of the political greats of the past, John Locke, or Thomas Paine…

Our freedom was won not by the lowly or the common, but by highly successful businessmen who cared more for independence and freedom than they cared for their own wealth and security…

Obviously Donald Trump has a towering sense of self importance. What goal could afford a more guaranteed heroic move into the history books than rescuing the mighty magnificence of America from the hands of liberal “fairness and equality” and professional politics which has brought us to our knees? And what quarterback would have a better chance of crossing the goal line?

Pull up your damn britches and READ THE BOOK!!

Weapon of A.S.S. Destruction

A.S.S. Destruction

I must preface this  with my intent, which is to promote what may be the most remarkable piece of literature regarding the relativity between politics and humanitarian values that I have ever read, “Weapon of A.S.S. Destruction,” by Alfonzo Rachel. A full painting will require some lead-in. So bear with me. I really will get to the point which goes far beyond religion, eventually.

One ever present aspect of human nature is the curiosity about our own eternal (or not) nature. Is there a God? Of course! (not)! Naturally I share this universal curiosity and have taken approaches ranging from absolute atheism all the way through the gamut to  the committed following of organized religion (Mormon). None of this seemed satisfactory, comforting, nor truly fulfilling. Thus none stuck.

Agnosticism is certainly the easiest route, being quite similar to the political belief referred to as, “independent.” It requires very little in the form of commitment and is the “faith” I have adhered to throughout most of my life.

Atheism can be logically compared to political anarchy, which is one of it’s lures. People are at least tempted to believe they are individually capable and responsible and that they don’t need to depend upon “fairy tales,” “magicians,” nor Gods. Most of us deny it, but there is an element of narcissism that naturally resides within us which makes this type of independence look appealing. This is one of the reasons I took a stab at atheism. I lost interest as my realization grew that atheism leaves us with true, non-self centered reason for nothing. I do like to think of myself as reasoned, yet I also confess to a propensity towards the dark side. It is largely because of my lingering fear of eternal damnation that certain individuals remain alive today whom I believed the world would be better off without.

The study of Christianity, particularly the pursuit made outside the reigns of any particular religious organization (Catholic, Protestant, Mormon etc.), the aspect of Christianity which claims to be the actual teaching of Jesus Christ (the red letters, as it were), ignoring the human manipulations of his doctrines, leads the student to some of the most sound and loving humanitarianism imaginable. Although I am far removed from the typical view society has as to what a Christian typically is, I am never the less sold on the fact that it presents us with a philosophy that guarantees such a broad range of freedom/responsibility empowering beliefs that no political philosophy can compare. Even if there actually were no Jesus Christ (that there was is historically provable), or if the man were nothing but a magnificently talented philosopher (which may be the case), the result of following his teachings leads to true freedom, the truest respect of humanity, AND an appreciation for our own existence, that no secular philosophy can approach.

It is easy to argue against torturing and burning witches, cutting the tongues out of “blasphemers,” the idea of multiple wives, or religious socialism. However none of these perversions can be traced directly to the words of Jesus. These were manipulations for personal gain made by humans holding up their own interpretations or even their own generation of words they attributed to Jesus. The ultimate core of true Christianity boils down to “My command is this: Love one another the way I have loved you.” The simple fact of the matter is if humanity actually followed this teaching alone, every one of the legal and political problems we face would fade back into the Hell holes from whence they came.

The flip side of this coin is the fact that humanity is distantly removed from the nature of Christ. Thus it is quite unlikely that we can be successful in imitating his behavior. Our best hope is to recognize it and hold it up as motivation for our higher intentions. This, beautifully, is the point of Christianity. It is a set of logical, reasonable, and purely humanitarian ground rules to strive for. Failure is certain but the attempt will naturally build good principle and strengthen morality in the heart and soul of the person who sincerely makes the attempt. Thus the failure becomes a success.

One of the greatest disappointments with atheism for me was the atheist arguments for morality. There is no doubt that atheists are perfectly capable of completely moral behavior, and atheists who do live morally, (there are many) can logically be seen as actually having a more personal form of morality than those who pursue moral behavior in order to earn a mansion in heaven, 70 virgins, 30 wives in heaven, eternal existence, or whatever payoff is being played/prayed for. However the ultimate question still remains. Why be honest? Why be fair? Why help the weak? The unfortunate answer which the atheist will employ volumes of words to present, boils down nicely and cleanly to one, “because.”

Now, down to the nitty gritty:

According to Plato, Socrates referred to democracy as the “politic of mediocrity.” Rachel’s book is a brilliantly written, shoot from the hip look at historically verifiable facts about the development of democracy in our American republic. He Illuminates beautifully all of its brilliant absurdity, and backs up Socrates’ observation made almost 2500 years ago with indubitable evidence. He ties it all together beautifully with the relativity between proper principle, morality, freedom, responsibility and Christianity. All of which are rapidly being lost in America.

Rachel begins with the “so called party switch,” where he illuminates the true roots of racism in America, revealing startling, verifiable truths about slavery, the Jim Crow laws, the Dred Scott decision, the KKK, the truest opposition to Martin Luther King, AND the truest roots of the growth of civil liberties in America.

From here Rachel moves on to one of the most coherent descriptions of the difference between liberalism and conservatism, which alone makes the book a masterpiece. He states quite plainly and simply, something I’ve been trying to relate in my writing for well over a decade.

He moves into the association between religious thinking and effective politic. “Facts have little effect on the opposition because everyone has an interest in confirming what they already believe,” the very foundation of my own philosophical interpretation of one of the core aspects of human nature, egoteneoism. He illuminates the difference between conserving the freedom to do for yourself, and the political hunger for voters’ dependency. The difference between voting for what’s popular and voting for what’s “right.” It is this portion of his book which will cause the most consternation for the liberal thinker, but careful consideration of its premise reveals a beautiful philosophical basis.

Next he attacks another liberal bogeyman, capitalism. By clearly describing what it is and the power that it implies, “capitalism is freedom of money.” The innate differences between capitalism, socialism, and fascism. He examines modern absurdities such as “minimum wage,” “unionization” (the stepping stone to communism), pulling into focus the “render unto Ceasar” statement, so often used to Biblically support taxation.

State run healthcare, abortion, Constitutional protection, homosexuality (including a very illustrative historical look at the real physical dangers which inspired the the anti-gay mentality which still exists. (Rachel presents a very logical case in justification for including homosexuals in the military) Immigration, back to racism “Democrats still have you on the plantation. They farm blacks for votes like ballot cattle.” Which brings to my mind a quote of L.B.J., “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for the next 200 years.” Environmentalism, “Our government currently makes laws respecting the religious establishment of environmentalism” (back again to egoteneoism).

Rachel takes a look at libertarianism, which was somewhat uncomfortable to me since I have often referred to myself as libertarian. “A Libertarian is typically just a liberal that doesn’t have a love/hate relationship with capitalism and the free market.” He presents a case which is now a new bug under my saddle.

One of the most important points Rachel makes is in reference to the American media, who I see as the biggest enemy the American tradition of freedom/responsibility has ever faced. “People vote democratic, not because of principle, but because of feelings swayed by the media.” There is a rising surge of resistance to the media lies, based on the growing recognition that it is going on. Tis one of the most important aspects of Donald Trump’s popularity, his refusal to kowtow to the whims of the liberal American media.

Bottom line… buy this book, read it, buy copies for your friends, give it out as Valentines, donate copies to charity, slide copies under your liberal professor’s doors, read it to your children at bedtime. Thank you Alfonzo Rachel (http://www.pjtv.com/?cmd=mpg&mpid=84 ) for a true breath of fresh air and a rekindling of hope!

Trump?

President Trump

 

Yes, I think so.

Trump’s shot at the Republican presidential nomination was intriguing, right out of the gate. The initial reaction to it was skepticism. “What’s this rich son of a bitch up to?” A valid question indeed! What IS this rich son of a bitch up to? What is in this thing for him? A truly objective analysis of new philosophies or ideas is made quite difficult by one of the basic self-defense aspect of human nature, which is a drive to maintain ones currently chosen beliefs. Much of the job of selling, be it ideas or dishwashers is, as Tump plainly recognizes, playing to people fantasies. Your reality is in your head, not mine. And it is real.

For me at first, Trump’s strongest appeal was his disdain for the main stream propagandia. Which spouts propaganda which causes typical Republican politicians to tremble in their boots. Rather than bowing and scraping and apologizing when faced with media propagandizing. Trump actually makes fun of them. Gives them the bird as it were, AND he profits in popularity and media coverage as well. For me this turned intrigue into a very positive fascination. Donald Trump rules the media. But still the wonder remains, who is he and what is he really after?

He obviously knows how to harvest benefits from his enemy. Donald Trump is getting more coverage from the propagandistic main-stream media than even their glorious angel, Hillary Clinton. Far more coverage than any of the Republicans he’s competing with. This not only benefits Trump, it exemplifies the wisdom of the man. However it comes at a price. The media does not want Donald Trump to win. The GOP (republicrats) are scared to dribbling shudders by Donald Trump, so getting his message out there in an effective way requires a certain amount of posturing, which he accomplishes brilliantly. Boisterous, cutting, offensive self importance opens the gate and Donald Trump triumphantly marches into America’s television, car radio, iPhone, newspaper, magazines (even the most radically propagandistic, i.e. NYT) for FREE! He plays the media fiddle so magnificently that their attempt to sell the scare reveals instead not only his core message, but a level of strategy which may be Trump’s greatest asset.

So… who is he really? What actually is at the core of his motivation? What is this rich son of a bitch actually up to? You’re not going to get at the heart of it via the media. Their ultimate motivation is to see him lose, so there will be no detailed and accurate analysis of what is going on. Getting at the truth is up to you. Unfortunately the disease of laziness and knee jerkism has reached a point which places most Americans at the mercy of whim. Trump realizes this and plays to it, “I play to people’s fantasies. . .­­ It’s an innocent form of exaggeration, and a very effective form of promotion…Perception is reality,” but the truth is out there to be seen by anyone who has the drive to actually investigate. There is undeniable evidence is in Trump’s own background. If one steps back from the mainstream circus side show into history and the actual words of the man, who unlike our current pRESIDENT, actually is transparent. You can see his school records, his professional achievements, ANY aspect of his history is open for all to see.

At age 13 Trump began attending the New York Military Academy, where he played varsity football, soccer, and was captain of the varsity baseball team. “Honesty and straightforwardness was the rule of law” at the academy. It got ingrained in us that you don’t lie, cheat or steal, or tolerate those who do . . . You just say the way it is,” Ted Levine, roommate. “He was cut from a different cloth, and it was quite obvious. He was more aloof. More focused than we were . . . We were wondering what we wanted to do when we grow up. He was already there.” ~Ted Pollard.

What you don’t find in Trump’s history is drugs, drinking, crime, nor even indecision. Trump was and is, driven. A man of vast accomplishment who attacks challenges and does so successfully. He turns obstacles into stepping stones and wins.

What’s in his head? He’s written 15 books, most of them before showing any sign of political ambition, and the man can truly be seen in their pages. One of the most important of these books, relative to Trump’s political goals is, “Crippled America.” To anyone interested in gaining a true perspective on Trump’s motivations, here they are. READ! Pay attention, turn off your presuppositions and listen for truth. It comes through quite plainly if you take down the shields.

Fertilized Mystification

revolutionary_socialists_logo_emblem-avatar

My mystification grows along with the absurdity of leftism. My life has its own level of absurdism which is fairly high. While I do recognize and attempt to justify it, I do also recognize the sandy, slipping soil upon which my absurdities are grounded. I don’t imagine a political force being applied to impose my absurdities upon you and yours.

Leftists on the other hand have constructed a fantasy world which although beautifully hopeful, is demonstrably impossible. The chink in the armor of their fairness and equality, is the essential nature of humanity. The universal failure of socialism, even when applied by the most humanitarian of intentions, i.e. religious organizations (Mormons), the founders of our country (Pilgrims), revolutionaries battling against tyranny (Spartacus)… the nature of humanity which includes a fair dose of greed and amplified self-importance throws a wrench into the gears. Beautiful intention evolves into a more self-protective form of tyranny, or oligarchy. Individualism, including freedom and exercising personally recognized and enforced responsibility, evaporates into the atmosphere of statist control.

It was a recognition of this infectious nature of government which inspired political philosophers all the way back to Socrates who saw democracy (the goal of so many modern politics) as the politic of mediocrity that it actually is. Demonstrably so… The irony of enforcing responsibility while defending individual freedom was the goal for which the U.S. Constitution was forged to inspire and protect.

“We still suffer from not having a Constitution that guarantees its citizens economic rights” ~Barack Hussein oBama. The Constitution, he explains, is a “charter of negative liberties. … (it) … says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.”

The mystery grows and fantasy evolves…

Interloping Refugism

st_islam-east-west

After the 9/11 Muslim attack America came together as one, mystified by the Islamic terrorist attacks that had just occurred and longing for the tradition that America represents. The upholding of honor and dignity as well as what many saw as a divine purpose being raped by mysterious invaders from the Middle East. Our will was steeled against invasion, not only of the obvious and physical sort we had just endured, but of ideological intrusions as well. On 9/11/2001 America exhaled and a magnificent heightening of patriotic spirit settled upon us for the first time since Pearl Harbor.

In the fleeting 10 years since, remarkable, almost incomprehensible change has occurred. The 2015 terrorist attacks in France have been a reawakening to our realization of the dangers we face from terrorists. It is no surprise that there is a general resistance to bringing  Syrian “refugees” to America because of their Islamic element. More difficult to fathom is the current American administration’s determination, fertilized by the bias and propaganda broadcast by the American main-stream media, the American education system, and others (liberality)) to continue and increase their numbers after what we are seeing in Europe.

Largely because of our history of freedom/responsibility, Americans are easily sold on the idea that opposing this “immigration”  is a sort of racism. We see Islam as a religion, and thus an inalienable right. The fear of Islam is seen as an unjustifiable prejudice. “Muslims are peaceful, tolerant and have nothing to do with terrorism.” ~Hillary Clinton.

Evidence, however, begs to differ. In the first place, a simple accounting of the verifiable numbers. If we begin at 9/11/2001, verifiable statistics give us over 300 terrorist attacks relative to Islam. Over 11,000 deaths and over 20,000 serious injuries1.

My goal at the outset  of this study was to accumulate a comparable list of attacks of a similar nature being conducted by non-Islamics for some other reason, be it racism or what have you. Thanks to the bias and propagandistic elements of our media (main stream, educatory and otherwise) that turns out to be a much more difficult task than I’d anticipated. There are many reports trying to convince us that as high as 98% of terroristic attacks are committed by those outside of Islam. But what I haven’t been able to find is an actual listing of these attacks such as the one I have been able to compile of Islamic attacks.

We are all aware of non-Islamic terrorist attacks; 1995 Timothy McVeigh’s Oklahoma City bombing, 1994 Planned Parenthood bombing in Brookline, MS, 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, and there are many others.  However there are few openly terrorist organizations outside of Islam, although such organizations do exist, such as the one some American democrats organized after the Civil War, the K.K.K.  Nevertheless, to produce a list backing up even the much more moderate claim that 60% of terroristic attacks are non-Muslim requires a redefinition of the term “terrorist,” AND must include crimes ranging from gangland violence to street crime and robbery.

To apply the 98% figure I’ve repeatedly seen (i.e. http://anonhq.com/less-2-terrorist-acts-committed-muslims-europe-us/), balanced against the verifiable figures we have in reference to Islamic terrorism since 9/1/01, one must come up with 15,000 non-Islamic terrorist attacks resulting in over 550,000 deaths and over 1,000,000 serious injuries since 9/11/01. This would be 89 non-Islamic terrorist attacks per month; 3274 non-Islamic terrorist caused deaths per month; 5952 serious injuries per month caused by non-Islamic terrorist attacks. To call this, hard to swallow is an understatement, but when backed by no verifiable statistical evidence, it seems rather absurd.

While the terrorist branch of Islam is referred to as “radical,” there is a simple truth which strikes the studious right between the eyes like a 12 lb. sledge, and can be found in the writings and scriptures of Islam. Words which combined with ‘Jihad,’ the seldom openly mentioned pillar of Islamic faith. Jihad, or holy fighting, is an obligation for every Muslim on earth! It is not the same sort of prescription we find in reference to what may become a necessity to fight for one’s freedom, or civil, or religious rights. Such as, “you may find it necessary to fight for your freedom if it comes under attack. Allah doesn’t even leave the decision up to his followers:

“Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” ~ Quran (2:216)

“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” ~Quran (8:12)

”And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah” ~Quran (8:39)

“So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”~ Quran (9:5)

“And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”~ Quran (9:30)

“Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,”~ Quran (47:35)

“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.’” ~Bukhari (52:177)

>The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings. ~Bukhari (52:256) –

>The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah ~Muslim (1:33)

“Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam. ~Tabari 9:69

“Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”~ Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 484

“Embrace Islam… If you two accept Islam, you will remain in command of your country; but if your refuse my Call, you’ve got to remember that all of your possessions are perishable. My horsemen will appropriate your land, and my Prophethood will assume preponderance over your kingship.” One of several letters from Muhammad to rulers of other countries. The significance is that the recipients were not making war or threatening Muslims. Their subsequent defeat and subjugation by Muhammad’s armies was justified merely on the basis of their unbelief. -Saifur Rahman, The Sealed Nectar p.227-228

There is much more, but I’d rather suggest some personal study of the “religion of peace,” beginning please, with the Quran.

Through this lens the question becomes rather more simple. It is less a question of the “rights” or humane consideration of these Syrian “immigrants” that our media is comparing to William Bradford and the 40 original Pilgrims we celebrate at Thanksgiving, it is rather a consideration of the safety and livelihood of the society that those original Pilgrims spawned. Our concern is rightly ignited by the importation of people who religiously believe in the concept of convert or destroy, whatever their “rights” may be.

Thanksgiving Truth

History_BYDK_Thanksgiving_SF_still_624x352

Thanksgiving (as we learn of it in school):

The pilgrims simply weren’t capable of surviving in the new world on their own. Fortunately for them, the Native Americans were there to feed them and take care of them and teach them what they needed to know in order to survive. It is to them we owe the survival of the pilgrims and the eventual foundation of our country. This all began from a harvest celebration in which the pilgrims sat down with the Native Americans. Not long after this the pilgrims began stealing and murdering and wiping the Native Americans out.

Thanksgiving (as it was):

William Bradford with 40 pilgrims seeking to escape religious persecution had set out, not on an adventure, but on a mission. Theirs was a Biblical foundation, The Bible having both inspired their flight and established the ground floor of their contract. Theirs was exemplary  of the value of “faith.” There was no knowledge that we will succeed, but there also was no doubt.

Upon their arrival they were met with nothing but wilderness. No hotels, no Wallmarts, no family, friends, no welcoming committee. During the first winter half of them perished. When Spring arrived Indians did teach them a great deal but it was not this that grounded our Thanksgiving celebration.

The pilgrims had previously entered into contracts with sponsors in London which required everything grown, trapped, harvested, manufactured or otherwise produced to go into a common store. Each member of the community had one share. This included all of the land and the houses. This was one of histories marvelous examples of socialism. Nobody owned anything and all product was equally distributed amongst all. The very model of the socialist fantasy we are marching toward in America today.

What they soon learned was the weaknesses of the socialist philosophy which rears it ugly head every time it’s tried. The root of its weakness being lack of motivation, which even Godly beliefs and moralistic intentions do not overcome.

William Bradford wrote:

The experience that we had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years…that by taking away property, and bringing community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing — as if they were wiser than God. For this community was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense, that was thought injustice.

Their solution to this obstacle evolved into the power behind the greatest economy this planet has ever seen. Each family was granted its own piece of land and the responsibility of working, harvesting and marketing the production. Keep what you need and sell the rest and with the money you earn you can buy the best. This worked magnificently, leading to trading posts being set up in which exchanges could be made not only amongst the pilgrims, but with the Indians as well. They were able to pay off their contracted debt with London sponsors. Word spread in England and through Europe and the Great Puritan Migration began.

The first Thanksgiving was indeed a get together between the Pilgrims and the Indians which whom they were trading. It was a mutually beneficial relationship which had resulted from the good will of both sides and shines beautifully from the two-sided coin the Pilgrims thanked God for at the first Thanksgiving. Freedom/Responsibility.

Propaganda, Move to the Right!

thanksgiving_cartoon1

We are seeing an unexpected result of the importation of “refugees.” Here we are, celebrating Thanksgiving. A celebration America doesn’t really understand. Having been taught lies through our education years, most American’s haven’t a clue as to the true meaning of the celebration and what it represents. Topping this off is the media attack Thanksgiving takes every year.

This year we are seeing a very different presentation. From the very center of the main stream propagandia outlets, The New York Times, Huffington Huffington Post, The Washington Post et al. we are getting comparisons between the pilgrims we recognize on Thanksgiving and the Syrian refugees which our administration is trooping into our country right now. We are seeing the propagandia come closer to truth about the humanity and nobility of the pilgrims than we’ve ever seen before.

The stories we typically see at Thanksgiving time about how the religious and fiendish American founders raped a virgin land, stealing from and murdering its caring, kind, and loving peoples who wanted nothing more than to be friendly and supportive, are hardly suitable tales for making a comparison intended illuminate the value and honor of accepting unvetted, healthy male members of the religion of ‘convert or destroy’ (refugees), struggling to escape the same sort of repression as did our pilgrims.
