The above graphic came from European Americans United, being posted at WVWN, where I found it.
I can see the point being made. Those of us who actually care about the existence of our folk and a future for our children rightly feel exasperated at our fellow citizens. It's easy to despair of any change for the better when our fellow citizens are caught up in everything but the things that matter most, or at least the things that we see as mattering the most. However, the graphic does not even mention ethnopatriot issues like race replacement and the anti-White agenda. It actually seems to express the paleocon viewpoint primarily.
The issues enumerated are important, but if you look at them overall, they collectively seem so overwhelming to the average person that people feel helpless to tackle them. The 'Tea Party' and their neocon brethren do speak out about some of those issues, though they assiduously avoid speaking about the more politically incorrect questions, the issues that really are more pressing because all mainstream discussion of them is taboo, and dissident viewpoints are stifled.
And is the Chick-Fil-A controversy really a tempest in a teapot, as some on the right are saying? The people who care most about the imposition of the gay agenda, and the suppression of opposing voices, are usually Christian 'social conservatives' who are pretty thin on the ground these days. Rick Warren and his cult followers have done a bang-up job of subverting any remaining social conservativism in 'churchianity', as they embrace the New Agey, 'social justice' faux Christianity.
Having said that about social conservatism, the fact still remains that most Americans do not support homosexual 'marriage'. Perhaps they don't have strong feelings against it, but they don't approve of having it forced on us by the media, the school system, and the academic establishment, plus the current regime.
The sheer cussedness which is a part of the original American character is still there, and people do not like being forced to accept certain things or to be told what they may say and think. However there are many people who are happy to be led by the cultural Marxists in the media, and to follow the trends of the day, and there is a polarization between the old Americans, or those with vestiges of the traditional moral system, and the post-American, post-Christian, media-raised mob.
This is what is playing out in the Chick-Fil-A controversy, and the fizzling of the 'Kiss-a-thon' protest should show that the majority do not share the enthusiasm for the homosexual agenda.
The leftist agenda has long included the destruction, which has been gradual so far, of traditional society, starting with the basic family unit. This controversy is part of that decades-long effort, and if we care at all about the survival of our people we have to think of the continuance of traditional marriage as central to our struggle. There is no way we can be ethnopatriots and not care about this controversy, or 'social conservatism.'
Dismayingly, a lot of WNs or paleocons or libertarians profess indifference to these social issues, sometimes even openly supporting the 'right' of gays to marry. Or they believe that the government should not be involved in upholding traditional marriage, believing in some 'right' of individuals to do as they please in this regard. In that respect, they put themselves on the same side as the radical left on social questions.
But I concede that it is distressing that Americans will not speak up on the more politically incorrect issues, preferring the Tea Party's safe approach of speaking only about fiscal issues and 'The Constitution', which are safe to talk about.
Speaking of the 'proposition nation' patriot crowd, on the 'American' Thinker website there is a piece featuring Glenn Beck's latest shindig. The Beckerheads or whatever they are called are rhapsodizing over his latest stage performance.
''Beck is the John Adams of our day. He knows a Democratic Republic is incompatible with Immorality and Godlessness. That's why Beck is fighting to preserve truth, honor, courage, and Christianity in our nation. Love him or hate him, he is exactly right.
I have a feeling in my bones that Beck is willing to martyr himself, figuratively and literally, to save this great nation.''
According to the article, Beck trotted out his idols, Lincoln and MLK, harking back to the Civil Rights days in his politically correct 'lovefest.'
Somebody commenting on this blog a few years ago referred to Beck as a 'Judas Goat.' I do think he is a kind of controlled opposition, and he is diverting perhaps ill-informed people with patriotic impulses into this dead-end kind of 'patriotism.' The 'America' he wants to restore is the propositional America, the America of Ellis Island and Emma Lazarus and the Melting Pot and 'My Country Right or Wrong.'
That America was already far astray from what our founding ancestors built, the republic they built for their posterity, their progeny. It was not built for the whole world, but for their offspring. It was not the come-one-come-all Tower of Babel that began in earnest in the mid-19th century. If we restored things to that status quo ante, we would eventually be right back where we started, with this changeling 'nation', this bogus 'America'. The America that Beck and his followers long for is a blank slate to be written on by anyone and everyone, as long as they salute the flag and bow to Lincoln, MLK, and the Statue of Liberty.
Americans in general are sheep without a shepherd, or in some cases sheep with a false shepherd leading them down a blind alley.
But if Americans start to stand up to the politically correct system, even on a seemingly inconsequential issue like that of Chick-Fil-A, at least they are resisting the seemingly invincible establishment on one front. I don't know that it's an either/or question, of supporting some social agenda or a more strictly political one; can't we walk and chew gum at the same time? Our folk are out of the habit of speaking out and standing up. We need to flex our muscles, feel our strength, and find our voices again. But as of now, few lack the discernment to look for answers in the right places, instead they are led up the garden path.
We need to start somewhere. We have to chip away at the politically correct idol if we hope to make any change whatsoever.
