They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines

“I will remind you. A little history lesson. The Nazis were the National Socialist Party. They were leftists. They took over the finances. They took over the car industry. They took over health care in their country. If Nancy Pelosi wants to find a Swastika maybe the first place she should look is the sleeve of her own arm.”

Liberty is better than slavery: Andrew Klavan and YAF Student Videos

Late in April, Andrew Klavan wrote a wonderfully erudite piece about culture and the media entitled Toward a New American Culture. Klavan begins his analysis by noting:

For many years, conservatives have been complaining about the left-wing bias of both the mainstream media and popular culture. The two are intimately connected because, over and above commercial success, the culture and the artists who create it are empowered by reviews, prestige and awards that the mainstream media bestow, facilitate and publicize.

But it’s now become clear that conservatives are wrong. The media are not biased against the right. They are openly hostile towards us. They are openly attempting to crush one point of view and elevate another. This is not a conspiracy. It is simply the result of a poisonous conformity, a climate of opinion which the MSM, populated almost exclusively by liberals, barely even realize they inhabit.

But in allowing themselves to become immersed in this climate, the bulk of the American media have now become the toadies of the state and the enemies of the people.

Although I am not an artist, I work in a profession (academia) where, if made known, my political and social beliefs could sink my career. The people that I work with are not evil–in fact, I personally like a great many of them–but once their innate assumptions about social justice, environmental justice, the prerogative of the educated elite to determine the course of the nation, and their horror at the folly of letting the less-educated “People” determine their own will are challenged, they go on the offensive. The result is either (1) an attempt to “re-educate” the person who poses a thread, the outcome of which has you publicly renouncing your beliefs and denouncing everything that you know to be true in order to be accepted back into the fold, or (2) marginalization, isolation and demotion.

Klavan provides a vision of what the New American Culture might entail:

Individualism [emphasis mine] is the very essence of both conservatism and art. But I think we can say that such a culture would reflect and uplift the values and perspectives that made the west and America the greatest and freest places on the globe; it would put forward an image of man as our founders knew him to be, flawed and sinful yet capable of striving toward dignity and salvation through self-reliance and sacrifice… In truth, there is only one essential principle our new culture needs to remember and embody and it’s this: liberty is better than slavery. This principle alone implies a moral order and a human purpose. It makes a small state better than a big one. It makes America better than, say, Saudi Arabia. It makes a religion based on “love thy neighbor,” better than one based on submission. This principle alone will guide us away from mealy-mouthed self-abasement to balanced self-criticism and praise amidst our search for the dignity, strength and morality befitting free men and women…. If artists guided by this principle begin to create, if reviewers guided by it write reviews, if foundations give us grants and awards, if investors give us the funding we need, then the cultural infra-structure of the left will collapse of the rot and corruption of its bad ideas. We will take back the culture and if we take back the culture, we will take back the country too.

In this spirit, I link to two student videos created for the Young America’s Foundation. These young people were willing to step forward and challenge a liberal canard: that redistribution of wealth is a positive good.  The aroma of hypocrisy among the student interviewees does not go unnoticed. I encourage you to support this worthy organization.

Twilight’s Last Gleaming. P.S. Our Flag Was Still There.

Notorious bigot, Ernesto Cienfuegos, editor-in-chief at the Voz de Aztlan (an online website promoting ‘La Raza’) has been vozing his glee–or his dismay, it’s hard to keep track of his meandering thesis–at the proposed bailout of the U.S. banking industry: ‘Twilight’s last gleaming’: The disintegration of the USA. The article sticks to the Voz de Aztlan party line of blaming the U.S., Israel, and the banking industry (i.e., the Jews) for all of the troubles in the world today. The article completely ignores the role of the Community Reinvestment Act in the mortgage crisis (see previous blog post below). The CRA’s goal was to provide home loans to people whose credit was not sufficient to receive a conventional home loan. The beneficiaries of this program were for the most part the low-income blacks, Latinos and other ethnic minorities that Cienfuegos so valiantly champions. It also ignores how these evil banks have been falling over themselves to provide financial services such as loans, bank accounts, etc. to “undocumented” workers (i.e., illegal immigrants from Latin America).

But, for the intellectually dishonest Cienfuegos, history begins with the war in Viet Nam and military spending by the US and Israel are to blame. On the one hand, he criticizes U.S. military actions and “war profiteering” while crowing about Hugo Chavez’s military alliance with Russia:

“In November the Venezuelan Armed Forces will be holding military exercises in the Caribbean with a large and powerful Russian naval flotilla that is presently sailing toward Venezuelan territorial waters.”

Maybe someone should explain to Cienfeugos that Russia is another predominantly Caucasian military Super Power that mirrors his own characterization of the U.S. He also approves of Chavez’s business dealings with China, another nation not known for supporting the ethnic minorities that live within its own borders. Rounding out Cienfuegos’s list of beneficial dictatorships is his hat-tip to Iran:

“President Hugo Chavez is today known as ‘Chavez of Arabia’ because he has come forward in defense of the besieged Arab/Muslim people by the USA and Israel. The region refers to the USA and Israel as ‘The Great Satan and the Little Satan.’ Hugo Chavez has also forged a powerful alliance with Iran. It does not take a rocket scientist to contemplate what this all means for the future of the USA.”

Cienfuegos warns the Aztlan community to prepare themselves for the coming trouble and that “… in a few months you will be paying possibly 12 dollars for a loaf of bread.” Just like in Mexico. Isn’t that what Aztlan wants: for the US to become Mexico?

What truly confounds me is that Cienfuegos is based in Los Angeles and seems to welcome any and all destruction that could be visitied upon the U.S. Does he walk around in some special protective bubble that will keep himself safe if his “heroes” attack the U.S.? He operates under the typical childish delusion that you can spite other people without suffering the consequences yourself.

“Let the naive so called ‘patriots’ suffer for their ignorance. Most of them believe in UFOs and in Big Foot…”

Cienfuegos is an expert on naive beliefs.
