Comes from Kurt Schlichter
The left would rather you lie and die than tell the truth and live.
A very simple statement of fact, but, like many simple statements of fact it is based in wisdom. Wisdom comes in large part from being able to accept simple truths. Schlichter possesses such an ability. Here is more of his piece at Townhall about the Left’s non-existent relationship with the truth
When it comes to terror, they prioritize their cocktail party clichés over our lives. They are willing to accept the risk of dangerous Muslim radicals infiltrating our country rather than admitting the truth and taking action. They refuse to bar people from jihadi hellholes, preferring to virtue signal in an orgy of self-congratulation over their own enlightenment. They refuse to deport scummy anti-American trash like punitive clitoral mutilation advocate Linda Sansour – hell, the liberal feminists have made that sharia-loving refugee from the Seventh Century their heroine.
And, of course, they eagerly seek to ensure patriotic Americans are just as disarmed and helpless as their Euro-victim counterparts. Nothing offends a liberal – especially their cowardly beta boyz – like a proud American with an AR15 shaking his head and saying, “Nope, I’m a citizen, not a subject.”
Go read it all, and do it now. Schichter is a direct guy, he does not pussy foot around, or pull punches. He is not worried about what names the left will call him. He is no David Frum, attending Beltway cocktail parties, spouting foolish things so Democrats will praise him for being their useful idiot. He is not some
political strategist hack talking head, he is a retired Army colonel, and, as his columns show, a thinker. Frankly, I wish we had Kurt Schlichter, and more like him in Congress. In short we need wisdom, and people who revere our founding principles to serve in DC. We need people who put the nation ahead of their own power and advancement. In short we need great Americans, and face it. Most of Congress just do not cut it. And yes, that includes too many Republicans.
Talking about Schichter reminds me of something. I think I need to create a list of great Americans. And no, I am not putting myself on this list. Nothing could make me do so, not even Salma Hayek standing at my front door wearing only a giant red bow begging me to put myself on this list!
Well, OK, I would do it for Salma because, well SALMA HAYEK! But seriously, my humility forbids such a self-congratulatory action. And, my humility is only surpassed by my greatness, soooooo
