Silence isn't golden…it is yellow. Zell Miller
"Unless I am convinced by proofs from Scriptures or by plain and
clear reasons and arguments, I can and will not retract, for it is
neither safe nor wise to do anything against conscience. Here I
stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen." -- Martin Luther
Rarely have the opportunities to make a difference been greater than
they are today. We live in the most unbelievable of times. Sometimes
it is if I am watching a fiction production done by the lefties at PBS.
Can any of you reading this ditty even begin to fathom how our
leaders would have reacted even 40 years ago? Do you remember the
outrage when Khrushchev pounded his shoe on the desk at the United
Nations? Can you remember the common refrain "I'd rather be dead than red?"
Those of you who are of my generation remember the Cuban Missile
Crisis, the drills in our schools where we got under our desks to
shield ourselves against a Russian nuclear attack, the seemingly
overnight erection of the Berlin Wall, and the War in Vietnam fought
to stop the "domino" spreading of Communism.
I remember the turbulent sixties where cities burned, national
leaders where assassinated, schools taught a love for America, and
young men married the girls they impregnated. The nation has changed
and we never saw it coming.
From Timothy Leary to Jerry Ruben, Bill Ayers to the Beatles,
Cassius Clay to The Chicago Seven, Harvard Divinity School to
Journalism Schools, "leftists" pledged themselves to the "religion"
that dominated their lives. "Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Western Civ has got to
go." Our parents laughed them off as rebellious children…dirty
misfits who would eventually come to their senses.
Some did, but many were true believers, committed to proving to the
rest of us that "God is dead", and proselytizing a moral anarchy
called liberation. We couldn't see it happening, or didn't want to,
as they infested America with the original swine flu that turned
American children into hedonistic pigs.
The radical Left was a fringe movement in the 60s, comprised of
politically marginalized and socially outcast hippies. Their
joke-of-an army consisted of racial minorities, militant feminists,
out-of-the-closet homosexuals, environmentalists, student radicals,
atheistic intellectuals, counter-cultural revolutionaries and the
antiwar movement. Now, four decades later, their once marginal
far-left views are normal, mainstream, a cultural majority, and the
philosophy of the Obama White House. How did they do it?
They were more faithful to no god than we were to our God. They
gained power through persistence and resistance, perversion and
conversion, indoctrination and inoculation, organizing and
mobilizing, imitation and humiliation, elections and defections,
associations and regulations, and infiltration and manipulation.
While the "right" voted for candidates, the left became candidates.
While the religious argued over Truth, the left re-wrote the truth.
While "conservatives" gave to their kids, liberals gave to their
causes. The election of Barack Hussein Obama symbolizes the long
march of 60's anti-Americanism sold as "change." The radical left,
birthed from the idea that you couldn't trust those in power, have
In April of 2009, James Dobson of Focus on the Family admitted that
the cultural war had been lost. "We are awash in evil and the battle
is still to be waged. We are right now in the most discouraging
period of that long conflict. Humanly speaking, we can say we have
lost all those battles." All one need do is view the evidence of the
60's outcasts' effectiveness.
• Feminism and racism -- Blacks are only 13 percent of the U.S.
population, yet a black man wins the presidency. Hillary Clinton, the
face of radical feminism, is Secretary of State, and even the
"conservative" Republican Party nominated a woman for VP, all
unthinkable 40 years ago.
• Homosexual Rights-- Homosexual relationships were once considered a
serious felony. Today, mainstream bookstores like Barnes & Noble
feature entire sections of literature devoted to gay issues. In the
60's obscenity laws would have made such displays illegal. More Czars
are homos than Christians.
• Environmentalism "Going Green" has become pop-culture. Al Gore,
the most radical environmentalist in politics today received more
votes in the 2000 election than the winner did. Do you recycle? Does
your school celebrate "Earth Day" but not Christmas?
• College Radicals the hippies stayed in school and are now tenured
professors. They control the schools of Law, Divinity, Education,
Humanities, Journalism, Poly Sci…where you pay them to indoctrinate,
not educate, your formerly Christian children.
• Sexual revolution -- Porn is everywhere, abortion on demand, sexual
deviancy is celebrated and those who practice it given special
honors. Homos want to get married and straights don't.
• Anti-War movement Our military is nothing more than a world police
force, sacrificing our young men in exchange for the "approval" of
the United Nations. Political correctness has made winning…at war…at
business…at Tee Ball…at anything...un-Christian.
• Atheism What victories have the "Religious Right won? Abortion?
School prayer? Homosexuality? Porn? School Vouchers? Hate Crimes is
coming and so is Gay Marriage. The "Values Voters" are merely useful
idiots for the Republican Party.
So, Pilgrim, what's a mother to do?
Look, I am simply a life-long Coach in the midst of fly-over country,
so what I have to say will not resonate with the Ivy League crowd.
But I've lost enough games in my career to admit that it is time to
change game plans. What we have done has not worked. Is it okay if I
scribble a few X's and O's on the chalk board? Sometimes folks won't
listen until they get tired of having their face rubbed in the mud.
Had enough yet? Are you ready to trade in the old defense for a new offense?
First, get our Christian leadership to get rid of the
nicer-than-Jesus image. Clean out the pulpit and get rid of the
hirelings who are more concerned about butts and bucks than they are
about truth and justice. Demand that your churches begin to organize
politically…across denominational lines and raise up, run, and
support men of character and integrity who will put an end to the
self-serving foolishness going on in America today. I say enough
already of the effeminized Christianity.
Bring back the tell-it-like-it-is mentality. No more pussy footing
around the issues for fear of "offending" somebody. Silence is the
muzzle of dissent. Bring back that "old time language" because words
are the weapons in this new "sanitized" warfare. Start speaking the
words "homo, communist, pervert, liar, thief, border jumper, sissy,
traitor, sodomite, idiot, bum, queer," and the rest of the words that
the NEA and their mafia has declared illegal. Do it often and in public.
Take it to the streets. Every anti-American deviant lifestyle proudly
marches down our streets in their latest version of perversion on
parade. It is time for the new "counter culture" to flood the streets
with gun-toting concealed-carry holders, flag waving veterans, and
home school moms chanting "Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Political Correctness has to go."
Let's get really radical and demand rights for home-schoolers,
smokers, rednecks, militia members, church goers, monogamous
heterosexual couples, virgin teenagers, English only speakers, and
Sabbath followers. How about some civil-disobedience? Let's have a
smoke-in at a public restaurant, burn newspapers outside the local
recycling center, throw condoms at the AIDS Task Force office, and
carry Bibles and American Flags as we recite the Pledge outside the
It seems moronic, but that is how the other side won. And how did
they win? Persistence, my friend. Persistence. We have the Lord on
our side and we won't even fight.
I appreciate Dr Dobson and his buddies and all that they tried to do.
I'm sorry the team he was coaching lost. I hope he enjoys his retirement.
But I'll be damn if I am ready to quit. Defeat only hardens my
resolve. The way I see it the 2nd half kickoff is just getting ready
to start and this time our offense is going to take the field. Let's
get rid of all of the Republican cheerleaders and their Pom Poms. The
boys are back in town and we are in need of a few snot-snorting
linebackers who will not try and love their way to victory. As I once
heard Woody Hayes lament, "I never saw a football player make a
tackle with a smile on his face."
Wipe that smile off of your face Christian man. This aint Tiddlywinks
we're playing. This is the battle for the ages. You can roll over and
wait for the Rapture if you want to, but count me out.
"For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall
there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another
place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who
knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and
fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I
also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the
king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
