“Onward Christian Soldiers Marching as to War”: The communists are coming……….

Every now and then you get a haughty glance into the mind of the enemy.  I’m not like Glenn Beck and others from the conservative side of things who seek to emulate Jesus Christ and turn the other cheek when we are persecuted.  Quite the contrary—as I respect Christians as people of value who are the solidifying force behind family structure and social goodness, they don’t make very good warriors as their religion requires them to have forgiveness and to love their neighbors as themelseves.  That’s where they lose me.  That’s also why the Saul Alinsky methods work against them, because while they are being assaulted by a treacherous, collectivist oriented enemy, they are forgiving and surrendering moral ground to a clearly hostile force—and that’s not a good thing.  For a republic that was founded on a Christian premise, sometimes it is required to fight for what’s right instead of turning the other cheek.  Turning the other cheek empowers the enemy, which is not the way to preserve a life of traditional and moral aptitude.  That is essentially what empowered this slug, Mike Caldwell to comment on one of my articles seen below about the socialist city council woman from Seattle.  After his comment you can read my response, and then it will be understood where the assault against tradition is coming from, and how it can be countered.

Guess what Mike, there is a whole country of hillbilly types that live between the cities and they aren’t going to put up with your socialism. They are kind to you people so long as they have guns, ammunition, food, and the ability to go to church. If you take that away from them, they aren’t going to play very nice. But they probably didn’t teach you all that in school did they?


Glenn Beck has said many times, even going back to 2010 that he is tired of fighting.  For a time he became sick and wasn’t sure if he’d be able to continue doing what he does in the media.  I am encouraged by what he is doing at Mercury Studios and I think the Blaze Radio is the new standard of talk radio—its sports free and filled with good traditional dialogue.  It’s a true friend in the darkness.  But the enemy knows that Glenn Beck is tired and when good people who are morally outraged have had their sensibilities assaulted one time too many, they by default turn toward an all-seeing deity in hopes that there is a master plan in the chaos somewhere that makes all this treachery have some kind of meaning at some level.   I don’t feel that way.  I never tire of fighting.  I thrive on it, I often think of my favorite song from my church days where I was a church assistant almost every Sunday during service, “Onward Christian Soldiers Marching as to War.”  God in whatever form made me the way that I am for a reason, and I don’t turn the other cheek, I never have and I never will.  So that doesn’t bode well for the Mike Caldwell types—those who love socialism and want a society of collectivism to dominate the former freedoms of the conservative right.

I get the opportunity quite often to socialize in the cultured areas of Cincinnati, the Mt Adams areas, the downtown districts, the new Rookwood area around Norwood, and other places and I am constantly confounded by the small mindedness of people who are most comfortable in the concrete jungles of civilization and believe that all of society can be ruled from fountain side restaurant tables with a beverage of choice, a laptop, and a Smartphone.  There is a big world out beyond the limits of their understanding and they never seem very interested in understanding it.  The Washington D.C. Beltway is suffering every bit of this problem of being out-of-touch with that big world that exists between the big cities of America.   However, I was born and raised in those cracks and I continue to spend a lot of time still in those kinds of places.  I know very well what the smell of a morning mist in the mountains is like, or the cold muddy water of a cave against your belly feels like, because I’ve been in those places often, and they are a big part of my life.

I know the people well who live in those in between areas.  Some of them are Democrats, some are Republicans, but very few of them are very firmly committed to politics, because it’s something they don’t trust from the scam artists of the big cities.  Most people in America live in these in-between areas and they are like I said to the commenter, tolerant until they lose their freedoms.  So long as they have food and money, they are giving.  The minute they don’t have those things they’ll reach for the guns in their closets, or on a gun rack, and they’ll look for their basic necessities.  And that is what makes most Americans so different from people in the rest of the world who have been conquered many times over by tyrannical regimes and ominous overlords.  Communists in America really think that if they dominate the social life in America’s big cities that they can have similar results as the Bolsheviks did in Russia where essentially they took over a few big cities in that frozen land mass and the rest of the country had to follow.  The same happened in China where communists took over Beijing and the rest of the country followed.  In those regions the cities fed the outlying countryside and were the only means of cultural input.  If a farmer wanted to sell their crop, they had to deal with the cities—so they had to adopt the communism of those cities in order to do business of any kind.  It’s not like that in America.  America is a de-centralized culture by design, and that is a major problem for the communist.

Communists have taken their message to public schools; there is no question about that.  But kids tune them out for the most part doing only what they have to do to get by.  In the rural cultures between major cities, even in spite of the communist influence of the public schools, there isn’t much love for the socialist way of life if the basic needs of those rural dwellers aren’t met.   They are tolerant so long as they are getting their basics in life.  But if those basics are taken away, there will be trouble.  The fantasy of the laptop city communist running the lives of the Darke County religious conservative isn’t going to gain traction—and if those collectivists attempt to bring the suburbs under urban control, there will be violence—and lawlessness.  Because the thin line that holds together the sanity of American civilization is unconstrained freedom that comes with distance.  People are tolerant of other people so long as they aren’t thrown together and expected to adapt to a way of life they don’t agree with.

Since church service on Sunday mornings aren’t what hold my life together I’m quicker to look for the war words than many others might be.  I’m also not tired of fighting, but am actually looking forward to it.  I’m not going to look for it either, but my eye is on the horizon keen on the outline of the communists that I know are coming.  They have been amassing for several decades in American culture on college campuses and large cities, and they need the resources of the productive to sustain their perpetual needs for consumption—and they will try to infiltrate the lands between the cities.  But it will not go well for them because any political map will tell them the story.  Communists are an extreme minority and they are largely concentrated in the big cities.  If I wanted to, I could avoid a big city the rest of my life and never miss anything they have to offer.  I could live happily with a canoe, a gun and a good woman forever and never miss the culture or the bright lights of a big city.  But the communist can’t, eventually they run out of money and have to expand their disease to new territories.  And that is why we have the Second Amendment—and why they want to take it away.  Because they are coming and the Christian soldiers at that time will have no choice but to defend their way of life.  Turning the other cheek won’t make the communists go away—but a well-kept gun will.

I write, and write, and write. And when I'm not writing, I'm thinking about writing. I have too many hobbies. I read too many books and I don't sleep. There's just too much life to be lived to waste it for even a second.
