Rambling of the Day: Rebels without a cause

28 Aug

Anyone who knows me can tell you I am all for exercising free speech and protesting the government for a noble cause. I’m a firm believer in our Constitutional right to do this, and I have a lot of respect for people who have put themselves on the line for causes they believe in – the Civil Rights Movement or Vietnam War protesters, for example. Noble causes that are crucial to the development of our nation and the protection of its citizens are the kinds of causes that are legitimate and demand attention.

But what I am seeing occurring in this great nation today are a whole lot of rebels without a cause. Oh, all the things you could stand for today that would be worthy of your time! From governmental corruption and abuse of power, the insanity in Syria, or perhaps the tiny issue of nuclear threat in Iran, there are plenty of serious issues to choose from to take a stand against. But, no, not here in 2012 America. Here in America our most serious protesters dress up as giant vaginas and protest for, oh yes, free abortions.

You just can’t make this sort of thing up.

“Free abortions on demand” is absurd enough, but take a look at the other sign. “Congress: Respect Women.” Congress, we demand that you respect us as we stand here in front of your offices dressed as vaginas…? I’m sorry, but you have to be joking. “Free abortions on demand?” That is enough to make anyone with a soul sick to her stomach. If you insist on having an abortion, man up and, at the very least, pay for it yourself. The government is no more responsible for paying for your abortion than it is for taking care of your child if you decide to give it life. I suppose it goes along with the mentality of entitlement to think that you should have someone else take care of your expenses, but we are talking about your personal decision to end a life inside of you. What kind of logical argument can be made in support of the government, which gets its money from the taxpaying citizens of this country, paying for this? That’s right, none, so shut up and find a real cause.

…But make sure you understand it first. Running around in a shirt with CHE splayed across it doesn’t make you an intellectual. Just because some socialist director makes a movie glorifying Che Guevara does not mean you know anything true about him. Here’s a quick quote from popular liberal hero Che:

“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”

Yeah, that’s the kind of philosophy on life you should display on your T-shirt. I don’t want to go into excessive detail about Che, because if you’re a mindless follower of the Hollywood version of history, then you probably don’t care. But if you actually are interested, just do a teeny bit of research and you’ll see what I mean. http://www.therealcuba.com/MurderedbyChe.htm

Once again, find something legitimate to stand for. If you support this guy you have to support Stalinism, which is where he gets his philosophy. Unless you believe Stalin was a liberating freedom fighter, throw out the Che shirt.

There are a million other examples, but you get the point. There are so many noteworthy causes to spend your time supporting; it is a total waste to stand for rubbish like free abortions. And please don’t dress up as a private body part to make your point, whatever it is. Those of us with small children would rather not be forced to have that conversation because you think you’re being creative.
