Phil Robertson Launches a Second Front Against the Left

In December, 1775, a little-known brigadier named Arnold in the barely born Continental Army assembled a group of volunteers in Maine who then hiked overland, crossed over into Canada, up the St Lawrence, and made an assault on the British Citadel at Quebec,

capturing it and holding it for a few hours before being beaten back. Historians call it a defeat, but England had been given an early signal of America’s real intentions.

It was our first fusillade againt an enemy on their home ground.

On 18 April, 1942, only five months after Pearl Harbor, 16 Mitchell B-25 bombers took off from the carrier USS Hornet under the command of LTC Jimmy Doolittle and bombed Tokyo and other targets on Honshu, Japan’s main island. Like Quebec, it was just intended to send a signal, and although the damage was minimal, and the Japanese government and media went to great lengths to hide news of the attack altogether, within a week all of Honshu knew of the attack. Psychologically Japan lost the war that week, for their impregnable island had been bombed as easily as swatting a bug. Many more would come.

(Also of interest should be the impotency of state-managed media to control information which is personal in nature to every citizen; i.e., Obamacare.)

In October of this year Sen Ted Cruz of Texas strode to the well of the Senate to read from Dr Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham and generally talk for 27 hours in an attempt to derail Obamacare. At the time we wrote here that his stand, and the subsequent Senate vote, which would draw eighteen other senators to his side, would be “a shot heard round the world.” That was probably the first political assault on the bastion of the Left since Newt Gingrich was Speaker, and while the media says little about it, this assault is still moving forward, and still under its own steam.

We’ve been on defense for so long, I’m not sure we know an attack on the enemy when we see one, much less a successful one.

Then suddenly this week, Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame, the patriarch of a family of bearded Christians and their wives, who have soared to the number-one slot of all time viewership for cable television, launched a second front, let’s call it the Culture Front, in this same war against the Left.

Now I see no need to recount here what Phil Robertson said verbatim, except to mention that he said, as he always does, “this is just me saying this,” then went on to speak to the rather obvious truths about homosexuality as a practice that most Americans, most humans, in fact, find objectionable, and Christians even being told in their Holy Book as a sin. An abomination. (I can’t make these words up.)

Nor do I see any need to recount the inaccurate reading of those same scriptures or the general misunderstandings of Christians about the homosexual condition by the gay activist organization, GLAAD. In this, general Christian understandings, including Louisiana rednecks, comport with the current pope, Francis. We can also recall that Pope John Paul even washed the feet of gay men with AIDS when he visited the United States. While wishing to save the sinner, neither Pope have ever claimed the authority to erase the sin. So GLAAD misspoke. Probably intentionally, as such misstatements could not have been accidental, or out of ignorance.

And to the extent Robertson’s words were both personal opinion and religious belief (i.e., no one else’s business) luminaries such as lesbian and atheist Camille Paglia came to his defense, but not about anything Phil Robertson believes but in the “fascist and stalinist-like manner” his gay detractors have behaved. “Bigotry” another gay defender of Robertson has called it. I get the sense that a lot of gays out there, in fact, the majority, really don’t like having self-appointed mouth-pieces such as GLAAD representing their opinions and most would just like to be able

to live and get along without having to get in everyone’s face at the first drop of GLAAD or LGBT’s hat, or showing up in a pink pinafore every time someone has a parade.

And Ms Paglia is more right than most of us. While I’d pay good money to see her sitting at the end of the Robertson table, holding Uncle Si’s hand, while Papa Phil prayed, and expect she’d do it out of courtesy if the opportunity arose (she’s always seemed like a good sport), and she might like some of Miss Kay’s recipes, I doubt she’d do a one-on-one with Phil about God. But they do share certain unalienable ideals; integrity, honesty, freedom and a hatred for this bastion of political correctness that Phil Robertson has just assaulted.

And this was an assault, an intentional attack, and not a gaffe, or a trap Phil Robertson naively fell into. “Please don’t throw me into that briar patch, Br’er Bear”, sez Br’er Rabbit. Phil has long stated, for those who cared to bother to find out, that his mission has always been to do exactly what he did here, not to launch a religious war against gays who want to live in peace and be left alone, but against those who take an intrusive, in-your-face political agenda and which, with the help of the media, have had ordinary citizens of ordinary sentiments and gays alike quaking in their boots far too long.

Those boots are about to be on the other feet.

Phil’s attack was deliberate, and to my mind, effective, and one which will probably grow, for just as with Obamacare, a vulnerable media has been reduced to talking and complaining only among itself, which, even if you threw in all the Republicans in Delaware and New York, would be precious few compared to the 95% of the American population who agree with Robertson, but have been afraid to say so. Because of him, many are once again finding their voices.

God either is or isn’t, but it is not for wishful thinking to make Him go away. If He is for real, then there will be a heavy price to pay for being wrong, and Phil doesn’t have to wish it on them for this to be so, But even if He is not for real, a great price will have to be paid by the 5% who want the 95% to cower in fear, for society, culture, has reached a place where they can no longer be bullied without severe and permanent disruptions. Even Darwinism concurs, for Nature, in the name of survival of the species, can be as unfailingly punitive as a wrathful God. The species, the civilization and the individual all are at risk here unless this life-without-abandon spree isn’t checked.

Fully two-thirds of the world by territory hate homosexuality, half of those using ostracism and law to limit it or prohibit it, so that practitioners at least have to sneak, while the other half are much more intrusive, seeking it out , ironically, with the same sort of snitch system employed by the politically-correct regimes of the Left in government and academia these days. Then, those who are caught are stoned to death.

In the other one-third of the world, the European West, mostly, homosexuality is still hated, but tolerated. But of late it has been propagandized as a perfectly safe alternative choice, recruitment beginning as early as the 3rd of 4th grade. European culture has already resigned from the human race, in part because of this bent. A series of Me-societies, built on self-gratification, their biological clocks are barely ticking. But a Christian America, almost from its inception, because of its belief in personal freedom, has provided a live-and-let-live atmosphere to reign, providing homosexuals a protective shield that had been unparallelled in human history.

Then came the political feminist and gay movements, whether from short-sightedness, ingratitude or a self-destructive bent Darwinists actually understand better than political scientists, who have chosen to push the survival envelope. I can only say, GLAAD, NOW and all the other groups, you just don’t know how close you are to screwing the pooch here.

Phil Robertson has launched the first assault on the Political Correctness barricades, and you misjudge the battle landscape entirely if you think politics can provide any sanctuary. Like Tokyo and Obamacare, this will soon become beyond the ability of the media, or the harsh words of bigotry you’ve already employed, to control. Phil Robertson is a man of his word, and has simply suggested you back off and let the world, including over half of your own gay community, to get on about the business of living. But if you force Phil to fail, behind him just may be the mob people all over the rest of the world are running from today. in places like Tehran.

  1. Your article brings a perspective I hadn’t thought of, Vassar. Phil opening a second front in the war against the Left. Ted Cruz did the first. Chick-fil-A was a start, but not enough. So few voices in Congress, but Cruz (and Lee) certainly are ones we didn’t have just a couple of years ago. Robertson is opening the cultural can, one that many of us have longed for. It isn’t about homosexuality – it’s about the incredible decadence the Left demands our society accept – a no limits, amoral culture – destroying our childrens’ childhoods, decency, masculinity, femininity, and the nuclear family. At the heart of their efforts is their desperate need to destroy God, who, of course, cannot be destroyed. The Creator isn’t going away…

    • Got any predictions on what happens next? If I was king of the forest, I’d have the clan continue with the show so as not to get sued, but talk incessantly about Phil being victimized by the liberal anti-Christian bigotry at A&E. I mean talking that way during show filming, and also in interviews. Maybe they can wear clothes during filming with Phil’s picture on, to make sure A&E can’t sound edit and sanitize things. That assumes such wouldn’t violate their contract; they don’t need the money from the show but they probably would be really hit badly by a lawsuit – like Alec Baldwin’s beating victim Kim was.

      • I doubt that’s their style. And I know they would never go around wearing the victim’s cloak. They have already won a great battle here, and I’d like to see more. Whining has been our greatest weakness for far too long, and I don;t think that’s a way to carry the next battle forward. I believe all they have to do, or will do, is simply go about their business as they always have. They are now bigger targets, but in a fight they can’t lose (and they know it), so the Left will only belittle itself more if it comes after them. The Left will do better to go pick on a Republican which, when I was in college, was as easy as rolling a gay outside a gay bar.

        • I have hardly ever seen Christians “whining” as you call it. To the contrary, the approach of turning the other cheek while gays play the victim role has been precisely why the gays have won on every front so far – until now.

          The reasons that CB reversed themselves was because Christians are finally starting to see that they are being discriminated against, and finally got angry over that. You can’t have the 2nd without the 1st.

          While Phil is suspended, for the Robertsons to go on as usual would mean that they continue the show as usual but without suspended Phil, giving A&E what it wants.

          • I was actually speaking of conservatives, not Christians per se, but I’d call it whining. We outnumber them 10 to 1 yet all we see is “why are they lying about us so?” as if Nature had proclaimed we are to be on defense all the time.

  2. This front looks more promising because it is fought in the marketplace instead of on Capitol Hill. Does the Hollywood left care more about profit or not? I’ve visited the DuckCommander.com website. They sell a duck call for $250 and another model for $19.95. I’m not worried one bit about them making profits in the marketplace. AETV is another story.

    • Intellectual honesty and leftism can barely tolerate one another in the same room. That’s the hypocrisy of it all, too. Gloria should have been honored. If someone said I was “Christ-like” I’d be thrilled.

      • Also, she insightfully described back then how the upper-middle-class men had been wimpified by their women (the “upper class” men having been neutered long ago). Now the Duke has been replaced by Brokeback.

        I suppose that after her support for Phil’s position the libs will now be looking for ways to eject her from her roles as columnist etc. on their lib sites.

        • She’s pretty secure so I doubt they can hurt her. In her neck of the woods the wimp-man is pretty prevalent. Power rape, a favorite boogeyman of the feminists for years, now seems to be exclusive to powerful female mgrs in NYC and up East. Kissing up has taken on a whole new meaning. There was a joke going around (reported by an alum) asking how females grads at Yale would handle their three years of lesbianism at Yale before getting married and having kids with a normal man. They’d had to kiss up for grades for three year. No, really. Paglia knows all these things.

          • That’s funny about Yale… I think. :<

            Paglia was never boring to me. She is what I'd think of as an honest liberal: deluded, but internally consistent and with some principles – whereas there are few principles left among modern liberals as they morphed into being merely politically-correct bigots, always opposing the white hetero Christian male ("the oppressor") and annointing everyone else as the innocent victim that needs protection, even black murderers.

            From the little I'd seen, Chris Hitchens was something of an honest liberal, too. At least I'd heard him say that Michael Moore is a "scumbag" because of all the lying he does. Then again, he had that irrationally weird anti-Christian hatred.

            Alan Dershowitz was ever the champion of minority criminals, yet he showed some principles when he sided with Stacy Koons and the other cops in the Rodney King case over double-jeopardy. Naturally, he was out-voted and out-shouted by the politically-correct bigots who are now the majority of the ACLU and live by the double-standards. Then again, Dershowitz has that irrational ultra-Zionism.

            I think of those as the old-fashioned kind. Harmful, to be sure, but not pure psychopaths like the Obama gang.

  3. As you probably are aware, the Lexington and Concord resistance against the liberal reign of Francis was about two months ago in the Buenos Aires cathedral when SSPX prayed a rosary out loud during one of the ‘interfaith’ ceremonies – wherein those who say that Jesus was false (e.g., Skorka the “pope’s rabbi” et al) had long been honored guests conducting their own religious services inside the cathedral.

    The SSPX had the cops called on them for daring to pray a rosary in a Catholic cathedral, and were vilified by the liberal establishment that Bergoglio has installed in the Church there through the years.

        • Who’s equivocating? That’s a nonsensical statement. I strongly oppose Francis because of his liberal agenda. However, there are Protestants who make a point to attack Catholicism in and of itself, even referring to things from hundreds of years ago. I’m not one of those.

          Are you one of those who think that Francis is merely “misquoted”?. Take a look at what Pius VI said in 1794 in Auctorem Fidei about how liberals use ambiguity when pushing through their liberal agenda. It’s the same now with Francis 200+ years later.

          • Of course you were. You don’t have to tell anyone here, or anywhere else that you disagree with the Pope, then come back later and say “Oh but I’m not anti-Catholic.” That’s an equivocation. We’re grown-ups here. Your opinions are fine with me, and quite frankly, it was a little light-hearted poke at an affectation I’d really like to see disappear from honest commentary.

    • I always like to see things roll out that are beyond the media and political activist to control. This is one of them, where we outnumber them 1000-to-1. Usually appeals to PC work, but Cracker Barrel’s lasted less than a day. The Monday Morning Gay Biscuit and Gravy Club will just have to go elsewhere. Like Obamacare this has become a transcendental event.

    • Merry Christmas, Pamela. Strange day for you to be out, but I needed to for an hour or two. But that said, just as I am trying to say how smart Phil is, you are suggesting he be insane. I do know the urge, though, but more to come. See my new post today earlier today.

      • Not so strange Vassar. This time of year I tend to be asked for a listening ear.

        Mr Robertson understands sin, temptation but more importantly, he lives salvation, redemption and atonement. Unlike others who continue to slither in muck, make daily offerings along S and G lines, then plant their behinds with pious faces on a carpet Friday night or in a pew on Sunday morning.

        Then there are the daily practitioners of the seven deadly and assorted venal errors in common sense and judgement. These are the give-no-quarter, you will obey , degrade yourselves because we will scream hate speech/discrimination if you don’t. Such a miniscule percentage of this nation trying to rule all via threats, intimidation and blackmail.
