We Also Are at War as LGBTQ and Other Extremist Cultural Enemies Seek to Destroy Our Way of Life

Joe’s the leader and the Zhlub
That’s made for you and me:

Hey! there, Hi! there, Ho! There;
We’re as Woke as we can be!

Joe the Zhlub!

Joe the Zhlub!

Forever hold our Rainbow banner
Bi! Lesb! Gay! Trans!

Let’s teach kids, grades one to three,
To learn LGBT!


No more phallus;
Be called “Alice.”
And join the jamboree.

Like Zelensky, we now are desperately fighting all-out war, and the Enemy has powerful weapons we lack — Mainstream Media, Social Media. Ron DeSantis is our Zelensky. We can torpedo the Pirates of the Caribbean. But we also need Mig-29s to fight ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.

Ukraine is sustaining deaths and physical destruction, but Ukrainian culture is safe. With a secure culture and heritage, a Nation survives and ultimately flourishes, even for centuries. Thus Ukraine.

Want proof? Ever heard of the Chinese? More proof? Howzabout the Jews?

By contrast, America is in peril of destruction. Our culture and history are not assured. Colleges successfully destroy so many. With almost all liberal-arts department chairmanships and social-sciences tenured professorships locked two decades and more for the Campus Left, a generation has been decimated. As Putin has taken Belarus and Crimea, and continues years later seeking more  to swallow, he controls media access rigidly so that Russian citizens have no idea what really is going on. Likewise, after 20 years — while America’s conservative classes slept — the Left here corrupted a generation by first gaining dominant media control to suppress outside news and ideas. Then the Left invaded, feeding our kids pablum, convincing them Jon Stewart and the Comedy Channel are news sources as reliable as Edward R. Murrow. Need more “information,” kids? Twitter has an algorithm. Also Facebook.

AOC is not merely an idiot but a metaphor for her generation, reflecting a four-year “education” costing $160,000 to $200,000 — graduating cum laude in economics — yet not understanding civics, how math works, nor core aspects of American history. Nor economics.

1619 Project? How about…

Roanoke, Jamestown, Plymouth Rock. How we got independence, from whom, and what happened at Lexington and Concord, crossing the Delaware, Yorktown. Nathan Hale. Patrick Henry. The War of 1812, burning the White House, Dolley Madison saving the treasures, the Monroe Doctrine, Jackson and the Battle of New Orleans, Lewis and Clarke, the Louisiana Purchase, the Alamo, Bleeding Kansas, the Lincoln-Douglas debates, Bull Run (Manassas) I and II, Fredericksburg, Shiloh, Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, The Wilderness, Lookout Mountain, Petersburg, Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Grant, Sherman, Appomattox, carpetbaggers, Thomas Edison, Babe Ruth, Carrie Nation, Lusitania, Henry Ford, Dust Bowl, Okies, Sergeant York, Anschluss, Pearl Harbor, Bataan, Corregidor, Midway, Guadalcanal, Anzio, Monte Cassino, Normandy, Peleliu, Market Garden, Hürtgen Forest, Battle of Britain, Operation Barbarossa, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Battle of the Bulge, Dresden, Warsaw Ghetto, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, Treblinka, Sobibor, Auschwitz, Einsatzgruppen, Babi Yar, Nuremberg trials, Korea, the 38th Parallel, Jonas Salk, Albert Sabin, Frank Lloyd Wright, Ayn Rand, John Galt, John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, James Garfield, William McKinley, TR, FDR, JFK, Ike, Korematsu, Brown v. Topeka Board of Education, Gideon v. Wainwright, Miranda v. Arizona,Escobedo v. Illinois, Clay vs. Liston, Cuban Missile Crisis, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Steinbeck, Herman Melville, Ralph Ellison, Tennessee Williams, Hank Williams, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Reba McIntyre, Chevy at the levy, Duke Ellington, Prohibition and Repeal, “Dewey Wins!”, Gone with the Wind, Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Mel Brooks, Elvis.

Ask a brainwashed college graduate — cum laude, summa cum laude, hubba hubba cum laude — to identify some of the above names and places and things. That is $160,000 or $200,000 of government Pell Loans and Parent Plus Loans, spent and flushed. As for AOC-as-Metaphor, she boldly asserts:

  1. The 22nd Amendment passed Congress in 1947 and was ratified in 1951 to stop FDR, who died in 1945, from seeking a fifth term in 1952.
  2. American ICE agents providing shelter, food, and medicines to undocumented aliens at our Southern border are akin to WWII Nazis, and the shelters are equivalent to Dachau and Auschwitz.
  3. Our planet will end in nine years. Democracy in America will end in ten years.
  4. The surge in crime — including Chicago Saturday night drive-bys, Los Angeles homeless randomly stabbing store clerks to death in fashion boutiques, and New Yorkers pushed off subway station platforms — all directly are the result of a child-care tax benefit ending, requiring parents to pay for baby formula.
  5. Joe Biden’s polls are not related to inner city crime surges, Critical Race Theory, and transgender education in the schools, racializing everything from his Vice Presidential pick to his Supreme Court pick, the collapse of American energy independence to the point that he now raids the National Petroleum Preserve that exists only for times of peril, foreign policy blunders, chaos at the Southern border on the brink of Armageddon as Title 42’s disappearance looms; and runaway inflation — but, rather, because he has not declared amnesty on college loans. (AOC has outstanding college loans.)

How explain such a corrupt litany of fact mirages, alternative “facts,” and brazen lies? Or such a consistently aberrant way of analyzing false “facts”? What techniques were used in degrading her mind?

We are at war. The Enemy is brutal and fierce. Global warming is not an existential threat to the planet. “Climate change” is as normal as elderly people developing wrinkles. However, it is a severe threat to our economy and society. Al Gore got a “D” in his college Natural Science course. That is the science and AlGorithm that is settled. Yet we now face economic and energy catastrophe in pursuit of a Green Agenda built on nonsense.

They are coming for our little ones. This time, though, the parents who slept through the twenty-year assault in American colleges no longer are somnolent. Humans particularly fuss over our young. For two years, American parents have overheard too much Woke classroom garbage taught on Zoom. Today they now stand on the front lines of war. Their enemy, Joe the Zhlub and his Attorney-General Merrick Garland, backed by Pelosi and Schumer, call them “Domestic Terrorists.” If that be terror, bring on the School Board meetings! To the barricades!

The only flaw in Gov. DeSantis’s bill is that he protects children only to grade three. Why stop at age eight when shielding our neediest and most vulnerable from transgenderism and other sexual corruptions during public school time? The new law should extend through eighth grade at least.

Fewer than one percent of Americans perceive themselves as transgendered. Fewer than five percent as homosexual. This is not a big issue. Ukraine is a big issue. Eleven dead marines and a killed Navy sailor and army soldier at Hamid Karzai Airport is a big issue. Runaway inflation is a big issue. One million undocumented people encountering ICE in six months, augmented by 300,000 “gotaways,” is a big issue. More than ten thousand unnecessary deaths from crime, exacerbated by Soros DAs who refuse to incarcerate smash-and-grab crooks or even to impose bail, is a big issue.

By contrast, LGBTQIA — like “Climate Change” — is a Nothing: Gore-nisht mit Gornisht, a player’s hand in a “Scrabble” game. Good luck getting the “Q” onto “triple letter score.”

Consider Orthodox Jewish parents. Although deeply passionate about things Jewish, they choose not to expose children to the Shoah until adolescence. Why subject them to Auschwitz nightmares on days other than Halloween and Obama’s birthday? Early primary grade-school years are for thespianism, not lesbianism. I played Captain Hook.

Until now, the very name “Disney” has been associated with wholesomeness. Snow White. Sleeping Beauty. Pinocchio. Dumbo. Bambi. Cinderella. Lady and the Tramp. Old Yeller. 101 Dalmatians. The Jungle Book. The Lion King. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck. Goofy. Belle. Dopey, Doc, Bashful, Sneezy, Happy, Grumpy, and Sleepy. Buzz Lightyear. Winnie the Pooh. Nemo.

There was a world where Coke was not Woke, and where Gillette sold men razors without degrading lectures. A clear line distinguishes between good corporate citizens and those advocating that teachers be empowered to teach kiddies about homosexuality and why transgenders opt to get their breasts and penises chopped off. Childhood is the age for Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, for building with Legos and Lincoln Logs, then breaking and rebuilding. No such erection ever lasts four hours.

Disney is not acting here based on “corporate social responsibility.” Rather, they are the most cynical of virtue-signalers, expanding operations in ten homophobic Arab Muslim countries that mostly criminalize homosexuality, murdering violators, often by marching them to upper floors and defenestrating them. Disney conducts cruises for fun and profit to countries where homosexuality is illegal.

This is a last straw. We are at war. I will not again bring my generations to Disneyland or Disneyworld or a Disney hotel — until we have won this war unconditionally. However, I will continue to allow streaming pre-2010 Disney films and cartoons, even though Ol’ Yeller died.

This was not Disney’s war to engage. No one attacked them. Special privileges and legislative rights they have enjoyed to conduct themselves autonomously as some kind of Mouschwitz in Florida should be withdrawn. They need to be beaten. No one — not even Disney — has clearance to pervert children.

Now it’s time
To say “Good-Bye”
To all that Company.
