The Permanently Aggrieved – Tea Party Nation


The Permanently Aggrieved – Tea Party Nation.

Welcome to 2014, a year in which being aggrieved on behalf of someone else has become a multi Billion Dollar cottage industry. Buckets of cash are waiting to be raked in by liberals self appointing themselves to speak out on behalf of a group who they feel should be upset about something. The something is not all that important. In fact, the more trivial the better, since defending trivial matters is damned near impossible.

There’s nothing more trivial than the logo for a professional sports franchise. It’s nothing more than marketing material, and usually means not one thing to anyone outside of its own fan base. So, of course, a group of liberal lawyers decided that in their arrogant opinion, every single Native American ought to be upset, rather than mildly flattered, that a professional sports franchise would want to be identified with their people. Further, they decided, without invitation, that they would level an attack against the horror of that logo and name on behalf of the party who did not have the good sense to be sufficiently aggrieved prior to their having spoken up on their behalf. the result is beautiful, since no one really cares to come out in defense, seeing as how the name Redskins and the accompanying logo only matter to those who make up the fan base, winning a national debate becomes much easier when the debate is one sided. Truly, under normal circumstances, I couldn’t care less about what a Football team from Washington D.C. calls itself. Times are changed though, and I recognize a larger picture forming here.

This is about societal control, over every aspect of our lives. I used to be a pick your battles kind of guy, but not any more. Liberals must be fought and defeated at every instance of their trying to inflict their control over us. There is not one positive thing that they’ve ever contributed to anything, and like any parasite, they’ll eventually end up killing the host, which for the purpose of our discussion, is every productive member of our society, those who work and pay taxes.

Until this year, I could not have cared less about the name, Washington Redskins. Now, I am a Redskins fan, and wish for them to win the Super Bowl. I love that name, only because liberals want it changed. This is the very same assault that has seen the Ten Commandments banished from centuries old town statues all across the fruited plains. It is the same assault that has seen the word Christmas replaced with Holiday Season, Merry Christmas replaced with Seasons Greetings, all while tax paying Americans get the privilege of funding works of art in which Crosses are submerged in jars of urine. It is invasive, and all encompassing. For those of you who believe for one moment that the Redskins organization will hold out for ever and defeat this intrusion into their rights as property owners, cute that you would believe this, I want you to take a look at the following picture.

When’s the last time you went grocery shopping and didn’t see this?

Rows of unused handicapped parking spots, anxiously awaiting those hordes of aggrieved handicapped drivers who actually didn’t give a crap, but some clever attorneys somewhere figured out a way to sue on their behalf and make money off of it. We’re now 25 plus years into this great kindness of pandering to people who are more offended with being pandered to than with not being able to park in the front row, and I have yet to see those spaces being even half way filled.

Set up a 501(c)3, start speaking out on a target group you feel should be aggrieved, claim to speak for them because they are too timid to speak for themselves, solicit donations, file law suits, and force America into diversity training, or sensitivity training, and wham, we’ve got a generation of people trained not to question any of it, and terrified of being sued should they step out of line. In this age of whining for fun and profit, there is no longer any aspect of our lives which is safe from being politicized. Speak out against any of it, and you’re a knuckle dragging bigoted homophobic racist insensitive jerk.

Even the food we eat, the very act of sitting down and enjoying a meal, has been tainted by the preening weenie crowd. GMO’s, over the top carb counters, politicization of gluten, (anything containing wheat,) meat, red meat, dairy products, hormone fear mongers, and a vibrant anti-sugar lobby have all started suing on behalf of the rest of us, too ignorant to realize that we should hate it all too. (Sugar by the way is the very first thing Millions of years of evolution has selected for us as a species to actually taste, lest anyone believe that this substance is truly the evil to be feared that the anti-sugar lobby claims it to be.) For those of you who will claim that this isn’t a left vs. right thing, take a gander at those who are pushing this agenda. Obama and Hillary voters, every last one of them, I’d bet my bottom dollar.

There’s a sameness to each and every one of these battles. Out of the blue, very vocal whining begins, money is raised, politicians begin beating their chests, more money is raised, law suits are filed, and another piece of our freedom is surrendered, along with another piece of our will to do or say anything about it. There is a price to be paid for surrendering our language, and that price is our Constitutional Freedom. Just because we are paying slowly does not mean that we will not give it all up as payment in full for our foolish disregard for what is happening. About 35 years ago, a friend told me that America was no longer a free nation, and I laughed at him.
