Octogenarian Rupert Murdoch, powerful autocratic media mogul with a distinctly fascistic worldview, never wastes a minute when he can be spreading patriotically packaged hate to convert another disgruntled citizen to his point of view. He gave up citizenship in the country of his birth, Australia, to become a naturalized, and ultra-nationalistic, highly influential U.S. citizen in 1985. In fairness to Murdoch, fascism is the ideal business environment for well-connected super-wealthy right wingers. Like other Nazi types, Murdoch and his propaganda machine are laser focused on relentlessly hammering home their message and never seem to fucking sleep. Even the enemy armies on the front in World War One took a truce in Jesus’s name on Christmas, came out of their bunkers, toasted each other, sang carols together, sometimes even exchanged gifts. Not Rupert, not today, not any day.
Here is a clip that FOX “news” posted to youTube shortly before Christmas Day turned into the day after Christmas. I am going to transcribe this articulate former elite soldier’s patriotic speech, calling for STRONG military leaders who believe in the exceptional greatness of our threatened nation, so that you can see its compelling, if simplified, “argument” plainly in front of you.
In full disclosure, my Instagram profile, my pronoun is listed as Attack Helicopter so you can let everyone know exactly where you are.
So, yeah, the military has a very specific and strategic job and that’s to keep our country safe and when you thrust them in to be the front line of a sociological experiment which has a pernicious ideology that makes people hate the United States, a soldier can very quickly start to despise the very thing he’s supposed to be protecting.
As the military is getting “woke” it is learning that its country is evil and racist and xenophobic and greedy and steals land and so why in the world should I defend something that is evil and awful? And the answer is “no, only evil people would defend evil things.”
And so it’s really less about whatever little headline is happening right now, it’s really more about the totality of what “wokeism” is doing to the military in general, the whole structure, the whole anti-everythingism that wokeism is is destroying the very fabric of why a soldier would even fight. You’re demoralizing the troops so it’s something far more at the heart of what a soldier is. You’re destroying their love of country and therefore their reason to fight and possibly die for their country. We can’t survive it.
My question for the general would be is are you studying the enemy’s playbook to war against them or to join them? And judging by things like the Afghanistan withdrawal, it looks like we’re more interested in supplying them all kinds of weapons that will absolutely be used, and have been used, to kill innocents. And so I wonder is the general reading to join them or to defeat them? And it looks like the former, not the latter.
My background was in special operations and I’m forever connected to that specific brotherhood, and I do know that that type of elite soldier, whether it’s Army Rangers or Seals or Special Forces they are highly pragmatic they’re intelligent and they’re very impervious to bullying. They’re not “woke”, they don’t go “woke”, you can’t make them be “woke”, wokeism, forced on the military will absolutely make you lose your most elite soldiers. We’ll lose them.
If we can’t get strong leaders who understand that their job in the military is not to play sociological games, but it’s to keep our borders safe from all enemies, foreign and domestic, we’re in serious trouble. That’s problems that we cannot survive.
There’s an ancient quote by a warrior poet named Thucydides and he says “the state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools”. We have to have strong military leadership that cares about pragmatic, in real-world results to keep people physically safe.
They’re everyday Americans, they’re civilians, they’re military, they’re police, they’re EMS, they’re doctors, bankers, lawyers, they’re all of us. And that’s what we’re after. We’re after the common man who loves freedom and who lives for higher purpose, is ready to sacrifice in the defense of others, and that’s the whole idea.
The military, even before its leadership was captured by what FOX calls the false and pernicious notion that our country has a deep history of racism, xenophobia and land seizure (not to mention the fake history of our government ‘disappearing’ of millions of indigenous Americans) has long been a democratizing institution, oddly enough. Not sociological games based on a pernicious ideology, but exposure to other Americans from different backgrounds in a hierarchy that rewards good service. I have a friend who grew up in Tennessee, had few contacts with Blacks and recalls he didn’t particularly like them as a group. In the army he became good friends with Black guys from different parts of the country, he found he had more in common with them than many others in the service. He says the army opened his eyes to how unwittingly racist some of his thinking had been, based on lack of contact and popular racist bullshit that other ignorant friends spouted. This insight came to him simply by his exposure to others, from other walks of life, other parts of the country, in an integrated military, everyone serving the same larger cause.
The strong military leaders this guy calls for never question that our country is the greatest in human history and will give their men good reason to fight and die for this greatest of all nations. It is as simple as good vs. evil. He clearly sees himself as something of a scholar warrior, like Thucydides, who he quotes. Presumably like pardoned felon General Mike Flynn of Q-Anon. As he points out, and follow this sophisticated argument:
And so it’s really less about whatever little headline is happening right now , it’s really more about the totality of what “wokeism” is doing to the military in general, the whole structure, the whole anti-everythingism  that wokeism is is destroying the very fabric of why a soldier would even fight. You’re demoralizing the troops so it’s something far more at the heart of what a soldier is. You’re destroying their love of country and therefore their reason to fight and possibly die for their country. We can’t survive it.
Fucking anti-everythingism will fucking destroy us, true dat. For example, as he points out, Biden gave the Taliban weapons to use against us, FACT, and Trump unilaterally negotiating the release from prison of 5,000 top Taliban fighters as a condition to our scheduled withdrawal from that unwinnable twenty year war had nothing whatsoever to do with it. The Al Qa-qaa explosives depot that our victorious army in Iraq inadvertently gave to the insurgents back in 2003 has nothing to fucking do with our woke “president” giving weapons to our enemies now!
Real Americans, Murdoch’s myrmidons remind us, know that we can’t survive a direct assault on our belief that we never fucking ever did anything wrong, to anybody!
It’s quite simple, really, are you on the side of good or evil? Choose a fucking side, buddy.
For example all these nefarious headlines about Trump’s inner circle and their conspiracy to overturn the election results, (presidential results only, mind you) employing every means necessary, including mob violence to do so. These little headlines are clearly designed to distract you from the real threat — “woke” people who hate our freedom, the mindless, godless anti-everything caucus.
The active and former military and police who participated in the totally legal protest at the Capitol to Stop the Steal did so because they sincerely believed their leader when he told them they’d all been robbed. Do not be distracted by headlines about “sedition” the real traitors are those 81,000,000 fake “woke” voters whose communist party claims to have legally defeated the man who got a record 74,000,000 totally legit votes.
You can’t compromise with Anti-everythingism. The supporters of Anti-everythingism are simply insane, evil, and should answer to superior force pursuant to the argument advanced by scholar warriors like Thucydides and Mike Flynn, and the MyPillow guy.
