Charlton Heston: Winning the Cultural War

I have to wonder if it would even occur to anyone at Harvard today to invite the president of the NRA to give a speech or, if they did, whether the Leftist Thugocrats would permit the speech to happen.

1999_02 16 Charlton Heston at Harvard Winning the Cultural War

Charlton Heston: Winning the Cultural War

Delivered Feb. 16, 1999, Austin Hall, Harvard Law School

Thank you very much, both for that warm response to the introduction and the introduction.

You know, very often people with public faces are introduced with the simple phrase, “Now, ladies and gentlemen, a man who needs no introduction.” Believe me, you could always use a good introduction. No, no, no, you laugh, you laugh, but it’s true. I have a story that proves it, true story — didn’t happen to me, happened to a friend of mine: Kirk Douglas. This was when Ben Hur was in release, more or less all over.

And Kirk said he was walking on a street near his home in Beverly Hills one evening after dinner when he was approached very politely by a stranger who said, “Excuse me, sir, I don’t like interfering in the private lives of public people but I cannot let pass this opportunity to tell you what a deeply moving and enormously creative performance you gave in Ben Hur.” And Kirk said, “Well thanks very much but that wasn’t me; that was another fellow.” And the man stood back amazed. He said, “Well if you aren’t Burt Lancaster, who the hell are you?”

So, I’m glad we’ve made it clear right at the outset that I’m not Burt Lancaster.

I remember when my son was five, explaining to his kindergarten class what his father did for a living. “My daddy,” he said, “pretends to be people.”

That’s not bad, actually. That’s about it. There have been quite a few of them. Prophets from the Old and the New Testaments, couple of Christian saints, generals of various nationalities and different centuries, several kings, three American presidents, a French cardinal and two geniuses, including Michelangelo. If you’d like me to work on this ceiling, I’ll be glad to my best. No, it’s just that there always seem to be a lot of different fellows up here and I’m never entirely certain which one of them gets to talk. Right now, I guess I’m the guy.

As I pondered our visit tonight it struck me: if my Creator gave me the gift to connect you with the hearts and minds of those great men I mentioned, then I want to use that same gift now to re-connect you with your own sense of liberty, your own freedom of thought, your own compass for what is right.

Dedicating the memorial at Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln said of America, “We are now engaged in a great Civil War, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.”

Those words are true again. I believe that we are again engaged in a great civil war, a cultural war that’s about to hijack your birthright to think and say what lives in your heart. I’m sure you no longer trust the pulsing lifeblood of liberty inside you, the stuff that made this country rise from wilderness into the miracle that it is.

Let me back up a little. About a year or two ago, I became president of the National Rifle Association, which protects the right to keep and bear arms of American citizens. I ran for office. I was elected, and now I serve. I serve as a moving target for the media who’ve called me everything from “ridiculous” and “duped” to a “brain-injured, senile, crazy old man.” I know, I’m pretty old, but I sure Lord ain’t senile.

As I’ve stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I’ve realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it’s much, much bigger than that. I’ve come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain accepted thoughts and speech are mandated.

For example, I marched for civil rights with Dr. King in 1963 — and long before Hollywood found it acceptable, I may say. But when I told an audience last year that white pride is just as valid as black pride or red pride or anyone else’s pride, they called me a racist.

I’ve worked with brilliantly talented homosexuals all my life — throughout my whole career. But when I told an audience that gay rights should extend no further than your rights or my rights, I was called a homophobe.

I served in World War II against the Axis powers. But during a speech, when I drew an analogy between singling out the innocent Jews and singling out innocent gun owners, I was called an anti-Semite.

Everyone I know knows I would never raise a closed fist against my country. But when I asked an audience to oppose this cultural persecution I’m talking about, I was compared to Timothy McVeigh.

From Time magazine to friends and colleagues, they’re essentially saying, “Chuck, how dare you speak your mind like that. You are using language not authorized for public consumption.”

But I am not afraid. If Americans believed in political correctness, we’d still be King George’s boys — subjects bound to the British crown.

In his book The End of Sanity, Martin Gross writes that

…blatantly irrational behavior is rapidly being established as the norm in almost every area of human endeavor. There seem to be new customs, new rules, new anti-intellectual theories regularly twisted on us — foisted on us from every direction. Underneath, the nation is roiling. Americans know something without a name is undermining the country, turning the mind mushy when it comes to separating truth from falsehood and right from wrong. And they don’t like it.

Let me read you a few examples.

  • At Antioch College in Ohio, young men speaking and seeking intimacy with a coed must get verbal permission at each step of the process, from kissing to petting to final, at last, copulation — all clearly spelled out in a printed college directive.
  • In New Jersey, despite the death of several patients nationwide who’d been infected by dentists who had concealed their own AIDS, the state commissioner announced that health providers who are HIV-positive need not — need not! — tell their patients that they are infected.
  • At William and Mary, students tried to change the name of the school team “The Tribe” because it was supposedly insulting to local Indians, only to learn that authentic Virginia chiefs really like the name, “The Tribe.”
  • In San Francisco, city fathers passed an ordinance protecting the rights of transvestites to cross-dress on the job, and for transsexuals to have separate toilet facilities while undergoing sex change surgery.
  • In New York City, kids who didn’t speak a word of Spanish had been placed in bilingual classes to learn their three R’s in Spanish solely because their own names sound Hispanic.
  • At the University of Pennsylvania, in a state where thousands died at Gettysburg opposing slavery, the president of that college officially set up segregated dormitory space for black students.

Yeah, I know, that’s out of bounds now. Dr. King said “Negroes.” Jimmy Baldwin and most of us on the March said “black.” But it’s a no-no now.

For me, hyphenated identities are awkward, particularly “Native-American.” I’m a Native American, for God’s sake. I also happen to be a blood-initiated brother of the Miniconjou Sioux. On my wife’s side, my grandson’s a twelfth generation native-American, with a capital letter on “American.”

Finally, just last month, David Howard, head of the Washington D.C. Office of Public Advocate, used the word “niggardly” while talking about budgetary matters with some colleagues. Of course, “niggardly” means stingy or scanty. But within days, Howard was forced to publicly apologize and then resign.

As columnist Tony Snow wrote:

David Howard got fired because some people in public employ were morons who (a) didn’t know the meaning of ‘niggardly,’ (b) don’t know how to use a dictionary to discover the meaning, and (c) actually demanded that he apologize for their ignorance.

Now, what does all of this mean? Among other things, it means that telling us what to think has evolved into telling us what to say, so telling us what to do can’t be far behind. Before you claim to be a champion of free thought, tell me: Why did political correctness originate on America’s campuses? And why do you continue to — to tolerate it? Why do you, who’re supposed to debate ideas, surrender to their suppression?

Let’s be honest. Who here in this room thinks your professors can say what they really believe? (Uh-huh. There’s a few….) Well, that scares me to death, and it should scare you too, that the superstition of political correctness rules the halls of reason.

You are the best and the brightest. You, here in this fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle of learning on the Charles River. You are the cream. But I submit that you and your counterparts across the land are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that and abide it, you are, by your grandfathers’ standards, cowards.

Here’s another example. Right now at more than one major university, Second Amendment scholars and researchers are being told to shut up about their findings or they’ll lose their jobs. But why? Because their research findings would undermine big-city mayors’ pending lawsuits that seek to extort hundreds of millions of dollars from firearm manufacturers.

Now, I don’t care what you think about guns. But if you are not shocked at that, I am shocked at you. Who will guard the raw material of unfettered ideas, if not you? Democracy is dialogue. Who will defend the core values of academia, if you, the supposed soldiers of free thought and expression lay down your arms and plead, “Don’t shoot me.”

If you talk about race, it does not make you a racist. If you see distinctions between the genders, it does not make you sexist. If you think critically about a denomination, it does not make you anti-religion. If you accept but don’t celebrate homosexuality, it does not make you a homophobe.

Don’t let America’s universities continue to serve as incubators for this rampant epidemic of new McCarthyism. That’s what it is: New McCarthyism. But, what can you do? How can anyone prevail against such pervasive social subjugation?

Well, the answer’s been here all along. I learned it 36 years ago, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., standing with Dr. Martin Luther King and two hundred thousand people.

You simply disobey. Peaceably, yes. Respectfully, of course. Nonviolently, absolutely. But when told how to think or what to say or how to behave, we don’t. We disobey the social protocol that stifles and stigmatizes personal freedom.

I learned the awesome power of disobedience from Dr. King who learned it from Gandhi, and Thoreau, and Jesus, and every other great man who led those in the right against those with the might.

Disobedience is in our DNA. We feel innate kinship with that disobedient spirit that tossed tea into Boston Harbor, that sent Thoreau to jail, that refused to sit in the back of the bus, that protested a war in Viet Nam.

In that same spirit, I’ m asking you to disavow cultural correctness with massive disobedience of rogue authority, social directives, and onerous laws that weaken personal freedom.

But be careful. It hurts. Disobedience demands that you put yourself at risk. Dr. King stood on lots of balconies. You must be willing to be humiliated, to endure the modern-day equivalent of the police dogs at Montgomery and the water Cannons at Selma. You must be willing to experience discomfort. Now, I’m not complaining, but my own decades of social activism have left their mark on me. Let me tell you a story.

A few years ago, I heard about a — a rapper named Ice-T who was selling a CD called “Cop Killer,” celebrating the ambushing and of murdering police officers. It was being marketed by none other than Time/Warner, the biggest entertainment conglomerate in the country — in the world. Police across the country were outraged. And rightfully so. At least one of them had been murdered. But Time/Warner was stonewalling because the CD was a cash cow for them, and the media were tiptoeing around because the rapper was black. I heard Time/Warner had a stockholders meeting scheduled in Beverly Hills, and I owned some shares of Time/Warner at the time, so I decided to attend the meeting.

What I did was against the advice of my family and my colleagues. I asked for the floor. To a hushed room of a thousand average American stockholders, I simply read the full lyrics of “Cop Killer” — every vicious, vulgar, instructional word:

I got my 12-Gauge sawed-off. I got my headlights turned off. I’m about to bust some shots off. I’m about to dust some cops off.

It got worse, a lot worse. Now, I won’t read the rest of it to you. But trust me, the room was a sea of shocked, frozen, blanched faces. Time/Warner executives squirmed in their chairs and stared at their shoes. They hated me for that. Then I delivered another volley of sick lyrics brimming with racist filth, where Ice-T fantasizes about sodomizing the two 12-year-old nieces of Al and Tipper Gore:

She pushed her butt against my —

No. No, I won’t do to you here what I did to them. Let’s just say I left the room in stunned silence. When I read the lyrics to the waiting press corps outside, one of them said, “We can’t print that, you know.”

“I know,” I said, “but Time/Warner is still selling it.”

Two months later, Time/Warner terminated Ice-T’s contract. I’ll never be offered another film by Warner Brothers, or get a good review from Time magazine. But disobedience means you have to be willing to act, not just talk.

Protesters vs Thugs

When a mugger sues his elderly victim for defending herself, jam the switchboard of the district attorney’s office. When your university is pressured — your university — is pressured to lower standards until 80% of the students graduate with honors, choke the halls of the Board of Regents. When an 8-year-old boy pecks a girl’s cheek on the playground and then gets hauled into court for sexual harassment, march on that school and block its doorways. When someone you elected is seduced by political power and betrays you — petition them, oust them, banish them. When Time magazine’s cover portrays millennium nuts as deranged, crazy Christians holding a cross as it did last month, boycott their magazine and the products it advertises.

So that this nation may long endure, I urge you to follow in the hallowed footsteps of the great disobediences of history that freed exiles, founded religions, defeated tyrants, and yes, in the hands of an aroused rabble in arms and a few great men, by God’s grace, built this country.

If Dr. King were here, I think he would agree.

I thank you.

YO MAMA SO…

Busy day today. My regular Thursday yarn-spinning session with my uncles, then my partner wants to get the boat in the water later this AM. It seems like he hasn’t gotten the registration renewal for the boat (it’s only $18) and the old sticker expires today. It’s sunny, but the high is only going to be about 60 degrees, but we dress for that. Then later tonight is the first night of the NFL draft. It’s only important to a football junkie like me.
I don’t have time to do a whole post but I thought you might get a smile out of one of these.

Rolling Stoner gets real

“It’s a little-known fact, but we reporters could successfully sell Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or any other populist candidate as a serious contender for the White House if we wanted to. … The lapdog mentality is deeply ingrained.” – Matt Taibbi – Rolling Stone – April 29, 2015

Tweeters:

  • “Little-known”? We’ve been pointing it out for decades.
  • It’s cute how he calls himself a “reporter.”
  • The hack is strong in this one.
  • The mask drops, along with all pretense.
  • How far gone are we when they’re no longer ashamed of being PR shills?

Subsidiarity

This is what subsidiarity looks like.  

2015_04 28 Citizens protecting cops

“One of the key principles of Catholic social thought is known as the principle of subsidiarity. This tenet holds that nothing should be done by a larger and more complex organization which can be done as well by a smaller and simpler organization. In other words, any activity which can be performed by a more decentralized entity should be. This principle is a bulwark of limited government and personal freedom. It conflicts with the passion for centralization and bureaucracy characteristic of the Welfare State.”

STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE; RISING RACIST STAR

I had done almost an entire post when my computer crashed. When I recovered it,the whole thing had been wiped out. There went an hour of my life I’ll never get back.

It occurred to me that the Soros-funded war between the street apes and the police is coming about, like the final scene in Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes. It’s what Obama has been planning since before he stole his first election.

Anyway, I spent yesterday having lunch with my best friend, who has been in and out of the hospital while the doctors try to figure out the cause of his blackouts. So far all the tests have shown nothing. He wasn’t feeling too bad yesterday so we left the boat in the shed and just went to the local lake and fished off the pier. That we didn’t catch anything was of no import. We just spent a few hours talking about nothing in particular. We’ve been friends for 20 years, since his wife is DWs BFF (that’s how she and I got together in the first place.)

I had posted a couple of links to articles about Ms. Rawlings-Blake,so I’ll try to retrieve some of it.

Baltimore Mayor Spoke With Obama in Afternoon – Then Waited 5 Hours to Call in the National Guard

SOUNDS NORMAL FOR A DEMOCRAT ADMINISTRATION

412x295xrocks-police-mob_jpg_pagespeed_ic_IFXKM6oiiNQm6_TxjvGc
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was asked why she waited hours to ask the governor to declare a state of emergency, while the governor himself hinted she should have come to him earlier.

“We were all in the command center in the second floor of the State House in constant communication, and we were trying to get in touch with the mayor for quite some time,” Gov. Larry Hogan told a Monday evening news conference. “She finally made that call, and we immediately took action.”

The National Guard was called in after 15 businesses were torched, dozens of arrests and over 15 police officers injured.

Rawlings-Blake says she’s thinking ‘long and hard’ about whether to run for U.S. Senate.

bal-rawlingsblake-says-shes-thinking-long-and--001

As she weighs a decision to run for U.S. Senate, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Wednesday she’s considering whether she can serve Baltimore better in her current job or in Congress.

Rawlings-Blake, who is in her first full term, declined to say how soon she would decide whether to run for the seat that will be vacated by longtime Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski. Mikulski announced this week that she will retire at the end of her term after nearly half a century in public office.

Valerie Jarrett in ‘regular contact’ with Baltimore Mayor over handling the riots

Is Valerie Jarrett the mastermind behind the reported order to Baltimore cops to “stand down”? The mayor’s announced policy to allow a “space to destroy”? Did she counsel Mayor Rawlings Blake to avoid calling up the National Guard after Saturday’s disturbances? Did she urge the city to let the students gathering Monday after school remain uncontrolled as they looted a mall?

Baltimore Mayor: The Recorded Words From My Mouth Were “Mischaracterized” by Media

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake blames media for accurately reporting her words from her mouth.
Evidently, she’s never heard of YouTube.

Tonight Rawlings Blake said her words were “mischaracterized” by the media.


“It is very unfortunate that members of your industry decided to mischaracterize my words and try to use it as a way to say we are inciting violence.”

Gruntsplaining the Voxsplanation of the WHCD

22lCMA19
Ezra Klein is many things besides being a shameless leftist ideologue whore. But, a humor expert? Not in a million years on one of Jupiter’s moons. Because a Jovian year is really freaking long – almost 12 of our years. See how explaining that made it so much funnier? Yeah, me neither. But maybe that’s not Ezra’s motivation in explaining the odd nature of President Obama’s jokes at the poorly timed White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Sunday night. It could be that his motivation was just to provide a little verbal aid and comfort to the pathetic failure of the now openly subversive Presidency of Barack Obama, just like the last few hundred times Ezra put something in print. I, finally, may be getting the pattern here.

In this particular Vox explanation, Klein gets right to it:

The joke of President Obama’s performance on Saturday was that he wasn’t joking. Everyone just had to pretend he was…

The tip-off there is, “It’s the right thing to do.” That’s not a joke. That’s Obama’s actual justification for the aggressive executive actions of his second term — “f*ck it, it’s the right thing to do.” But the norms of politics are such that he typically has to frame his actions as routine, dull, even necessary. He has to search for precedent and downplay the consequences.

Did you get that? Ezra, our genius boy voxsplainer expert has described for us the current reality: that Obama is not even trying to have a legal Presidency any more. What he’s describing is a total f*cking apocalyptic rogue dictator who does what he “thinks is right,” and his only concern is getting away with it. You know, because everything he wants to do is F*CKING ILLEGAL.
GettyImages-471170238.0
Of course, Ezra’s moralization about this is just adorable. He’s so proud of his President being brave enough to do the “right thing.” But no, Ezra, you retarded weasel, none of what Barack has done could be construed as “the right thing.” Maybe you could voxsplain to us sometime about how it’s right to bypass all this nation’s immigration laws and the U.S. Congress in order to force the immigration of millions, granting them illegal benefits, with no rational explanation other than the goal of padding the voter rolls of your own party? How is it right to bypass due process in order to fast-track the economic destruction of the country because of a controversial theory about climate that cannot even be discussed openly for fear of the truth becoming obvious to everyone? How is it right to betray Israel and pander to Iran?

But now that you mention it, Ezra, you morally-damaged, brown-necking charlatan, you know what would be “the right thing” for Obama to do? He could start by canceling appearances at events like the WHCD, which was literally held in the flickering flame light of Baltimore as it burned from riot fires. Then he could GO THERE. Go there and do his f*cking job. You know, Ezra, that thing we hired him to do. As our first black President, he’s uniquely qualified to help put out those flames. He could be there right now, pleading with the rioters to stand down.

He knows how to issue “stand down” orders, right? He did it repeatedly and effectively a few years ago in Libya, and God knows it was difficult for him to get the U.S. Marines guarding our assets in Yemen to drop their weapons and flee like little girls. But he succeeded.

So, why not offer to personally address the concerns about police action in Baltimore and elsewhere around the country? And then he could follow up by calling off some of his own federal storm troopers harassing innocent citizens in their quest for the imaginary “domestic terrorist.” Oh, and maybe he could bring himself to condemn a single one of the thousands of acts of Islamist genocide against Christians going on in the World right now? That would be a good start. It might interfere with a round or two of golf, but it would be the f*cking right thing to do. Right, Ezra? Even a slimy, thermonuclear hypocrite cockroach like you should be able to see that.

What Is Wrong With Sally Kohn? No, Really.

k1
Milo poses a good question. Maybe this tweet from earlier gives us a clue about what made her the inscrutable mess that she is.

I wonder how you’d feel at an abortion rally as a young girl, hanging out with your mom who was determined to show you that the only reason you were alive is that she happened to be having one of her ‘non-crazy’ days when she decided to give birth to you, but that it would have been totally cool if she’d decided to have your head ripped off in the womb by a trained professional, instead.

But who knows? Maybe this ‘daughter’ she speaks of is not really a precise analogy to herself, since she never made the decision to give birth to her, as far as I know. Her ‘daughter’ is the adopted child of Sally and her lesbian partner. They’re taking care of her for the moment, or at least until they get tired of her, or the laws in her state are finally changed back so that such a thing isn’t legal any more. After all, there’s a reason why most people have an issue with adopting out their baby son to be raised by two gay dudes. Or their little girl to be raised by women who really like – you know – girls. So, maybe, compared to all that, going to the abortion rally isn’t quite so traumatic for this girl? Let’s hope.

Live Action News had a really good recent piece that responded to Sally Kohn’s article in the Daily Beast entitled: “Abortion Access for All Our Daughters.” Sally seems to like that word. Daughters. I don’t know for sure if she really knows what that word means. For one thing, I don’t think it’s as optional or portable as Sally thinks that it is. A daughter, to me, is someone who has a father, in some acknowledged sense, whether he’s around or not. And a daughter is someone you never have to decide whether to kill or not. That part doesn’t really enter my definition. And, you know, if it ever DID enter my decision-making process for a daughter of mine, during a moment of complete insanity, it certainly wouldn’t be something I was compelled to explain to my daughter to the point of forcing her to attend pro-infant-daughter murder rallies.

DRONE KILLS Bush v Obama

April 23, 2015: President Obama refused to take questions regarding the latest drone strike that “collaterally damaged” (killed) two al Qaeda hostages, one an American doctor, the other an Italian aid worker. The New York Times went so far as to accuse the Obama administration of often being “unsure of who will die” in drone strikes.

THE MONDAY POST-WEEKEND REPORT

Grandson RJ Pistol’s first baseball game, scheduled for Saturday morning, was postponed due to inclement weather. They played Sunday afternoon under a bright blue sky with the temperature hovering around 60, with a breeze that necessitated a jacket. As usual his cheering section included mom, dad, stepmom, grandpa,two grandmas, and older sister. He hit the ball hard several times and recorded an RBI groundout in the fifth inning. It was a beautiful day.

The annual DC get-together for democrat politicians and their water-carriers in the sham media where they celebrate jerking each other off while blatantly lying to the lIVs and ignoring seious felonies committed by their heroes as a matter of rote. I’m including some stuff, but you can take it or leave it.

THIS IS THE VULGARITY THAT PASSES FOR COMEDY WITH THESE PHONIES
Comedienne Cecily Strong showed just how brave comedy is in the face of power when she completely attacked Obama’s political opponents while worshiping at the feet of Hillary. Yes, true bravery.

In the second part she bravely went after a disgraced politician that had already resigned:
In this short last part, she kisses Michelle Obama’s butt for a few minutes:

Five Obama Jokes From The WHCD

1). “Being president is never easy. I still have to fix a broken education system, issue veto threats, negotiate with Iran, all while finding time to pray five times a day.”

2). “I’m so old John Boehner has already invited Netanyahu to speak at my funeral.”

3). “Let’s face it, there is one issue on every reporter’s mind, and that’s 2016. Already we’ve seen some missteps. Turns out Jeb Bush identified himself as Hispanic back in 2009. Look, I understand. It’s an innocent mistake. Reminds me of the time I identified myself as American back in 1961.”

4). “Hillary kicked things off by going completely unrecognized at a Chipotle. Not to be outdone, Martin O’Malley kicked things off by going completely unrecognized at a Martin O’Malley campaign event.”
