We have to get this off of our chest as we’ve been driven to distraction by eggheads on “our side” poring over how the population is divided into this or that group and how we must, must tailor anything we say and do towards this “new reality” or we’re doomed, DOOMED they tell us.
Cut it out already.
That is exactly what we must NOT do, because that is everything that true conservatism/libertarianism is NOT all about. Our beliefs, inasmuch as we still believe in them and, if we don’t, then why bother?, are centered on two things: Individualism and liberty. Those two concepts care not one flying fuck about what particular “demographic” an individual belongs to and, moreover, nor do those individuals care one flying fuck. Freedom and independence are inherently cool, whether you’re white, black, yellow, candy-striped, Christian, atheist, Jewish, male, female, young, old, blond or ginger.
You can claim that a large part of the population has been convinced that they need Uncle Sugar to survive and that this is preferable to the big, bad jungle of a free market where they would surely perish, but that’s just because they’ve been brainwashed. It has nothing to do with actual reality as your innate characteristics such as skin color, belief and gender have nothing to do with your personal potential.
They have been brainwashed by generations of ProgNazi leftist swine in our education system and the EneMedia, deliberately split into competing tribes constantly warring with other tribes for their survival because, well, you know the term already: “Divide et Impera.”
This is NOT what conservatism/libertarianism believes in, it never has, and by accepting that “reality” foisted upon us by the divisive, subversive, terrorist leftist swine we’re only supporting their narrative and, believe you us, they’re laughing all the fucking way to their next strategy meeting.
We must reject it utterly, not only on a personal level but also very much in the public sphere, and be bloody annoyingly loud about it. Reject it as in “paying no bloody attention to it”, reject it as in “not even finding it worthy of comment” and reject it as in “just what in the name of all that’s holy to you possessed you to state that individuals can be easily categorized into tribes? Are you racist or something?”
What we must not do is respond to charges of racism by pandering, by immediately and artificially inflating the numbers of the minority du jour in our ranks or creating different talking points for different demographics because, in doing so, we’re openly admitting that the other side has a point, that we have a problem that needs correcting. And we don’t.
WE believe that you’re equally worthy of individual freedom, independence and respect regardless of which “tribe” you’ve been told that you belong to. WE believe that you’re equally capable of achieving your true potential no matter what artificial subgroup of humanity our ProgNazi enemies have convinced you that you belong to. WE believe that your “tribe” does not determine your character beforehand, that your “tribe” is not inherently industrious, lazy, greedy, philanthropic, ethical, immoral or any other of the labels that the enemy has not only stuck on you but convinced you that it belongs there.
WE, as a matter of fact, don’t recognize “tribes” at all, except for one, and that is the one we call “Americans.”
E pluribus unum. Yes, we have differences, INDIVIDUAL differences, but none of those are determined by any artificial “tribe” thought up by eggheads in order to control us, and they’re what make us strong, because all of those differences contribute to the whole which is greater than the sum of its individual parts.
And we ALL share the longing for success, liberty, freedom to mind our own business and the desire to be beholden to no fucking one.
Let the other side pander to shoving people in boxes, prejudice and stereotyping.
We believe in none of that, and therefore we have no need to address it, any more than we feel a need to address the possible impact on the global cheese market of a future permanent Moon base, because we know that the Moon is not made out of cheese.
Liberty, independence, prosperity, equality of opportunity.
Those are NOT hard things to “sell”, and they have abso-fucking-lutely NOTHING to do with “demographics.”
So cut it the fuck out already, because you’re beginning to piss His Imperial Majesty off. And you would not like him when he’s angry.
