The Military Is No Joke

Those in the military wage war. They travel long distances, they wreck things, they kill people, they are killed by people, and they suffer. This is not child’s play. It is an immense act of service. They give their lives far away from home so that you can lie quietly on your couch and not have an enemy drop a bomb on you. They give their lives for your freedom.

And after what the government is doing to the most important army in the world, I hope someone will sign an agreement to forever ban Democrats from ever being allowed to lead the military. Maybe it’s time to implement a mandatory psycho-technical test for anyone seeking to lead it. And a drug test too.

A drag queen is a gentleman who has been putting on makeup for hours. He could have painted his face to look like a zebra — or a clown, to crown himself the king of the circus — but he decided to do himself up as a woman, God knows why. But he is not (it still feels stupid to write it) a woman. My mother is a woman. At best, he’s a guy fooling around, even though he is no longer of an age to play dress up. If the military now uses drag queens for recruitment, the Democrats have achieved the impossible: turning even the barracks and iron discipline of the military into a damned circus.

The Left does the same thing on both sides of the pond: It debases everything. These days, several MEPs have criticized the photography exhibition hosted by the European Parliament, which includes blasphemous images, such as a Christ surrounded by homosexual apostles dressed as sadomasochists. The rest of the exhibition does not differ significantly: a black man and a white man naked in bed, a group of soldiers kicking a boat with immigrants, and the like. The author of the exhibition is a Swedish idiot whose only claim to fame consists in being controversial, although personally — more than shocking — she bores me.

In any case, she is free to hang her homosexual photos anywhere — I particularly recommend Iran, where collectors abound — but not in a building paid for by all Europeans, which should be a dignified and respectable place, not a whorehouse off the beaten track where Christ is institutionally insulted. It never ceases to amaze me how all these transgressive and avant-garde artists of scandal always transgress and scandalize on my dime; they never do it on their own. That is problem with public money: If whatever’s bought with it doesn’t work, it doesn’t matter.

In one week, we have turned the most important army in the world into the laughingstock of all its enemies, and the seat of European sovereignty, the parliament, into a place where Christians — precisely the ones who culturally founded the same Old Continent that is being destroyed by a bunch of parasites — are offended. The army, of course, is Biden’s fault. Various people are to blame for the parliament issue, because although the exhibition is a leftist initiative, it has only received resounding criticism from groups aligned with the unabashed Right: from the Lega in Italia to the Spanish MEPs of Vox.

The self-conscious right-wingers whose eternal majority in the European Parliament has only served to allow all these repugnant progressive initiatives, those of the European People’s Party, those who live on their knees begging forgiveness from the Left, consider freedom of expression to be more important than avoiding blasphemy. They know nothing; they confuse everything; they deserve everything coming to them. Fortunately the train of history will soon run them over, and this time it will be for good, as has already happened in Italy with Giorgia Meloni, and as is about to happen in so many other places in Europe where people are tired of having to live asking for forgiveness for being right-wing, for being Christian, or for believing that one cannot change sex, and that everything is an immense lie.

Hopefully those same winds of conservatism will do their work in the United States as well, and soon, throughout the West, we will once again be proud of the great American military and not cringe when we see a guy with botched makeup trying to recruit new troops. Who is he going to recruit? Bud Light’s chief marketing officer? Maybe the parliamentary photographer? All people, doubtlessly, are willing to lay down their lives for others on the battlefield, and to conduct themselves with dignity, courage, honor, and loyalty.

Excuse me for laughing. Just before bursting into tears.
