RUSH: As you know, for the bulk of this week and much of last week I have been focusing on the assault on American civilization, American culture, Western civilization. And I’ve been bouncing off of what I call a triumphant speech that Trump gave in Poland about this. And we’ve been talking about the sheer hatred and panic that Trump’s speech was greeted with by people on the left who despise American culture. And I ran into a very, very good piece about American civilization, Western civilization over on Townhall by Kurt Schlichter, and I want to share it with you when we get back.
RUSH: Kurt Schlichter has a piece at Townhall, and it’s on Western civilization, culture, bouncing off Trump’s speech as well. It’s called, “Liberals Can’t Deal with a President Who Takes America’s Side,” and he starts out throwing bombs. “Let me throw down this marker,” Mr. Schlichter begins — and it might be Schliketer: I’m not sure how he pronounces it. I’ve seen this name spelled as it is pronounced Schlichter which is why I’m pronouncing it that way. But I will allow that he might pronounce it differently.
“Let me throw down this marker: The West is superior to the rest of the world in every significant way, we should aggressively back our allies over our enemies, and the guiding principle of our foreign policy should always be America’s interests. No apologies. No equivocation. No doubt. What are your questions? Well, if you’re a normal American, you won’t have any questions,” over these assertions. Writes Mr. Schlichter, “[T]hese truths are self-evident.
“But if you’re a progressive,” if you’re a liberal, “you’re gonna have a little sissy snit fit like so many libs did in the wake of the president’s triumphant Warsaw speech. There’s one thing that always sets them off — uttering the truth/heresy that not only is Western civilization the best and most advanced culture in the history of humanity, but the United States of America is its greatest manifestation.” You can tell why I like this, right? I’ve stated this in my own words on so many previous occasions, so I like the way this has been put together.
“[N]ot only is Western civilization the best and most advanced culture in the history of humanity, but the United States of America is its greatest manifestation. The immigrants and refugees get it. Which way are they always headed? North — to the comparative paradise of the Western world — or south, to the hellscape of the Third World?” Where do they go? “That’s a gimme. They are never headed south, and everyone knows it. Yet the left still insists that we stop believing our lying eyes and start believing the liberal Fifth Column of multicultural liars infesting America’s alleged elite.
“Except our eyes aren’t lying, and now we have a president who won’t lie either. It makes them nuts. Can you imagine Felonia von Pantsuit uttering the glorious words our Commander-In-Chief spoke to our steadfast, loyal Polish brothers-in-arms? No, [Felonia von Pantsuit] would have continued Obama’s despicable sellout of these sturdy heroes, leaving them to the mercy of her reset buddy Vlad” Putin. That’s a good point. Do you think Putin likes Poland? You don’t think Putin would like to control Poland? And here’s Trump, who supposedly colluded with Putin, praising Poland and promising to protect it?
“So, while Trump was reciting manifest truths like the fact that Western civilization is the height of human achievement and worth fighting and dying for, the liberals were their own usual enemy-hugging selves — lying and distracting. How dare America’s President stick up for America!” and he’s right. I read to you these quotes from various leftists. Peter Beinart. This Marcotte woman from Salon.com, all of them thinking what Trump said was white nationalist Nazism, in praising Western civilization. It tells you right there what they think of their own country.
These leftists think the that their own country, Western civilization, is the problem in the world. It’s white nationalism; it borders on Nazism. It’s punitive. It steals. “One of CNN’s femboys…” I guess that’s one of the anchors: F-E-M-B-O-Y-S. “One of CNN’s femboys was squeeling like a tween about somebody not shaking Trump’s hand, and if channeling the world’s least hot mean girl wasn’t enough, he even botched the story — there was no handshake diss. … Back home, everyone’s favorite Islamic radical apologist and Democrat idol Linda Sansour was flapping her lie hole again, this time declaring that #TheResistance was part and parcel of jihad.
“That’s sort of true, since jihad and liberalism share in common the fact that they are both practiced by cowardly buffoons who hate normal Americans. … This Sansour idiot symbolizes much of why liberalism is a total failure, rejected by all who are decent and normal.” Are you detecting his theme here, that what the left despises is what is normal in the dominant American culture? And make no mistake: He’s right about this. Overthrowing normalcy and redefining it to include the quirks of fate that make up liberals is exactly one of the reasons why Western culture is under attack.
“Leftists, especially liberal feminists, drool over [Sansour’s] hatred of normal women who don’t buy into her evil ideology. She is the perfect heroine for a progressive movement that is based solely on self-loathing and a desire to destroy the very culture that allowed its practitioners to be such frivolous clowns in the first place,” and then Mr. Schlichter writes, “It’s their daddy issues playing out on a cultural scale. These liberal scumbags aren’t worthy of respect, and because they don’t get any from us normals, they want revenge — or at least to be noticed by the patriarchy that rejects them. It’s like some spoiled rich girl who tries to get attention by promising to act out when ignored. ‘I’ll show you, Daddy! I’m going to go to college, shave my head, get a big tattoo, and experiment in unsexy lesbianism!'”
Anyway, it goes on but it’s a raucous defense of Western civilization and his characterization of the people who oppose it.
