I’ll never join your mob, so stop asking

I’ll never join your mob, so stop asking

Everything I say and do is carefully thought out. I don’t react to anything emotionally, because to be frank, I used up most of my emotions decades ago. Also, I don’t personalize things. So people need to stop telling me that I must say and do certain things. And everyone really should give up trying to—Christ, I hate this word—shame me into joining their mob. Don’t bother telling me that I oppose things in bad faith. The one person on earth who understands my motivations perfectly is me. What I’m doing is rejecting the collectivist approach to life.

It’s not a fashion statement or a pose. Collectivism makes me sick. I look around and see how stupid, belligerent, and unhappy it makes people. So I’m not ever going to let a crowd steamroll me. That’s your gig, not mine.

I don’t need any of you.

It’s true that I like a lot of you, but I don’t need you. So if you ostracize me for not scooping out my brain and falling into step with you, I’ll survive. This is what “belonging” means to me.

Today on Twitter, someone told me that I must call Bruce Jenner “she.” Well, I’m not going to do that. Bruce Jenner has a penis, testicles, and XY chromosomes. Calling him “she” makes as much sense as calling Rachel Dolezal black.


That’s when the insults started. I needed to “educate” myself about transgender people.

No, I don’t. I’ve known five transgender people: four male to female and one female to male. The subject of gender never came up. I met the people, and then we began talking about our common interests. I’m guessing that all five people rejected identity politics, the way I do. If the person had immediately said, “I demand that you call me a woman (man),” I would’ve, just to keep the peace. But you can bet that we would not have had much to do with each other after that.

If Bruce Jenner sends me an e-mail politely asking me to call him a woman, I will. But I’m not going to be told by strangers how I must speak about people I don’t even know. Sitting here in my house, ALONE, I’m not going to knuckle under to social-media peer pressure.

Today the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage must be made legal throughout the nation. The question of gay marriage is a matter of indifference to me. Since we live in a democratic representative republic, the voters should’ve decided whether or not gays could get married, and I would’ve lived with the result. Instead, nine unelected judges decided. In a minute, I’ll give you my prediction on the long-term ramifications of this.

Here’s what a cleric wrote in response.


He’s saying that opposing gay marriage on religious grounds is as bad as the mass murder committed in Tunisia.

At least 39 people, mostly foreigners, have been killed and 36 injured in an attack on a beach in the Tunisian resort town of Sousse, officials say.

Video footage showed the body of a suspected gunman lying in a street.

Tunisians, Britons, Germans, Belgians, French and at least one Irish citizen are among the dead in the attack claimed by Islamic State (IS).

Before we return to the utterly vile, evil comment by “Reverend” Richard Coles, let’s clear up what happened in Tunisia. Once again the press is falling all over itself praising the “brazen” attack while refusing to report on the spectacular response by the Tunisian security forces. Try and find when the attack happened. I finally located a tweet that gives us a general idea.

The tweet was sent at 11:40 a.m. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which is 12:40 p.m. Tunisian time.


At 1:00 p.m., Tunisian Interior Ministry Spokesman Mohammed Ali Aroui said that the terrorist had been killed. A man dressed as a tourist opened fire at a hotel filled with hundreds of tourists, and it took the Tunisian police less than ten minutes to suit up, arrive, spread out, locate the terrorist, and kill him, all without harming anybody else.

These are some of the best antiterrorist forces on earth. It’s disgusting that the press refuses to tell us that.


It’s no less disgusting that “Reverend” Richard Coles equates mass murder with VERBAL opposition to gay marriage. What an absolutely un-Christian man he is. When someone is reduced to saying that all differing viewpoints are illegitimate, you know that he can’t defend his position.

Before I give you my prediction, I’ll tell you rinky-dinks on Twitter that you don’t have to worry about me being “hateful” and “homophobic.” I know more about homosexuality in western society than all of you put together.

My hobby is collecting postcards from World War I, with an emphasis on flamethrower and assault troops. The Germans invented special-forces tactics that are still used today. They created a flamethrower regiment and eighteen army assault battalions, all-volunteer units that trained constantly. Each assault battalion had artillery, trench cannons, mortars, flamethrowers, grenade launchers, and a massive number of machine guns. They moved fast and hit incredibly hard.

By reading postwar memoirs and studying the Nazi movement—begun by World War I veterans—I estimate that about one-third of the men in the assault battalions were gay, and another 20 percent were bisexual.

They didn’t hide it. Here are the noncommissioned officers of the 7th Company of the flamethrower regiment.


Noncommissioned officers of Assault Battalion No. 5 (Rohr), the world’s first modern special-forces unit.


Can they snuggle any closer to each other?

Flamethrower troops right after the war.


How often do you see soldiers sitting on each others’ laps?

My study of World War I made me an expert on acceptance of gays in modern western societies. But I study all conflicts. There’s always been a strong gay presence in the armed forces of all nations, going back to classical antiquity.

This is why I have no patience for the gay-as-victim trope. If I had a gay son, I’d teach him about the men who charged across No Man’s Land and rolled up trenches with hand grenades. My son would learn to pound the crap out of anyone who messed with him. One of my heroes is the writer Quentin Crisp.

Sting wrote a song about him, called “An Englishman in New York.”

Quentin Crisp is my hero because he did everything his own way, he never backed down, and he never gave in to despair.

Confront your enemies; avoid them when you can
A gentlemen will walk but never run

Being openly gay, Crisp suffered greatly in the UK. He was rejected for military service during World War II due to his “perversion.” When he met American soldiers who accepted him the way he was, he became rabidly pro-US and emigrated here in 1981. He died at the age of ninety.

I don’t need Twitter whelps telling me to educate myself. The odds are that I know more about the subject of gay men than every person lecturing me.

And now my prediction.

In the US, the year 2016 will be a political bloodbath. For the Democratic party. Collectivists have become chimps throwing their own feces at everyone who disagrees. Any form of dissent is met with hysterically vile personal attacks. At the same time, collectivists present themselves as shrinking violets who demand trigger warnings and safe spaces. They’ve inspired a level of insanity that no society can tolerate.

Bookstore at Gettysburg park pulling Confederate flag items

GETTYSBURG, Pa. —The bookstore at Gettysburg National Military Park has stopped selling items with the Confederate flag in the wake of last week’s massacre at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Gettysburg, the site of the Civil War’s pivotal battle, said Thursday it will no longer sell 11 items that use the battle flag as a stand-alone feature.

The bookstore says it will continue to offer items that feature both the U.S. and Confederate flags, as well as books, DVDs, and other educational materials “where the image of the Confederate flag is depicted in its historical context.”

The National Park Service had asked concessionaires to pull Confederate-flag clothing, stickers and other items.

National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis says “stand-alone depictions of Confederate flags have no place in park stores.”

All signs point to a calamitous defeat for collectivists in 2016. The British and Israelis elected conservatives in landslide victories that NOBODY predicted. Those are center-left nations. The US is a center-right nation. Most of the country is like me. We don’t appreciate being told on a daily basis that we’re the same as mass murderers because we have a different opinion. And we object to the government ramming political philosophies—right or left—down our throats. The word that collectivists will have pounded into their skulls after the elections of 2016 is “hubris.”

Arrogance that leads to disaster.

You heard it here first. Take it to the bank.
