How Wacko Dems Will Reach Out to America

See how much of this you can take.

So the Democrat “strategist” comes on Tucker Carlson’s show to proclaim, “Democrats are going to run on American values.” Oh, please. Usually they run over American values.

But what “American values” is he talking about? Open borders? Transgenderism? Race war? No. He’s talking about “jobs.” And he says more immigration is going to create more jobs in America. He is not able to explain how importing millions more poor people will do that. He also seems to be suggesting that it’s not just poor people, but “engineers and scientists” who are sneaking over the border illegally.

Dude! I challenge you or any other Democrat to name a single mainstream American value that you and your friends do not despise. You may give lip service, for example, to Christianity–but we see you promoting abortion, sodomy, disregard for law, class warfare, etc. You’re right out there in the open, wrecking our culture and writing us off as deplorables. We know who you are and what you want. That’s why Donald Trump is president.

I just can’t wait to see how these weirdos reach out to America.


Socialism: They Don’t Know What It Is, But They Like It

I just had a horrible thought: you could probably crank a hit song out of that, I Don’t Know What It Is, But I Like It.

Here are a bunch of collidge stodents being asked about socialism. They’re all in favor of it, big-time. They also don’t know what it is, and are totally stumped when asked to define or describe it. “If it’s helping people, I’m for it.” Brilliant. Your tuition dollars at work.

Salutes to Campus Reform.org for producing this video.

College, college, college… hmmm… Hey! I think I know what happened to that Indus Valley civilization! College happened to it.


Yeah, They’re Crazy

I think if I were offered Tucker Carlson’s job, I’d be convinced I was having a bad dream. Or maybe a nervous breakdown.

In this outing, Tucker interviews a smirking paramecium named Dakotah Something, who thinks socialism really, really works and America should try to be like Venezuela. ‘Cause all the probs down there, he says between smirks, are caused by bad people trying to ruin the government’s plans to create a workers’ paradise. Damn, it’s a tough row to hoe, for those “dedicated Chavistas.”

Workers, eh? Socialism is full of airheads who never did a day’s work in their lives. What would they know about work?

Watch this kid’s face and listen to his words. This is a product of our education system. This is what we’re getting for our money.

This is our national folly come to life.

And what we’re supposed to do with the hundreds of thousands like him that our colleges are turning out, beats me.


The Narnia Children, Grown Up

Here are the four child stars from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the BBC version from the 1980s. The interview is about 12 minutes long; if you’re a Narnia freak like I am, you’ll enjoy it.

I’ve seen Edmund in a Poirot episode, and Peter in a Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes movie–the disappointingly bad one about the vampire.


Here’s the Webinar! ‘Thoughts on Being a Writer’

Wow, here it is already–the “webinar” I did just the other day, organized, moderated, and edited by Andrea Schwartz, my esteemed colleague at The Chalcedon Foundation. She is amazingly efficient.

So here it is, if you can stand listening to my voice for 55 minutes (I’m not sure I can). (  https://thekingdomdrivenfamily.com/2016/10/26/thoughts-on-being-a-writer-webinar-discussion-with-lee-duigon/ )

It was a lot of fun being questioned by people who had actually read my books: in fact, it was the first time that’s happened. I hope the advice I gave these kids and teens was good advice.

I’m Back

I’m back–and I’m bushed.

I got all pumped up, doing that webinar, answering all sorts of questions about writing in general and my books in particular, yak-yak-yak a mile a minute (hopefully to good effect) until I just about plotzed. And then I had to sit down and write my weekly News With Views column… and suddenly it’s almost 4 p.m.

And I still have to squeeze in a bike ride before supper.

You’ll pardon me, I hope, if I don’t get around to blogging about politics today. But I should be good for a critter video or two, a little later on.

Meanwhile, the sun’s coming out–so off I go.


Weep for America: a Generation of Air-Heads

Check out this video by Mark Dice: what do everyday Americans know about the birth of their country?

Uh, virtually nothing.

They think we won our independence from China in 1872.

They think our Founding Fathers included Jesse Ventura and John Wilkes Booth. And also somebody named “Jeremiah.”

They are not new arrivals from countries far away, but home-grown Americans–disabled by an American public school education.

It’s hard to hold on to something that you don’t value.

It’s going to be hard to hold on to America.


My Interview (Maybe)

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/by-the-fireplace/2016/03/10/interview-with-author-lee-duigon

If this link works, you’ll be able to listen to my interview with Grant Warren on By the Fireplace.

If it doesn’t–well, I never said I know what I’m doing when it comes to computers.

Maybe I’ll let my cats try it.

P.S.–How do you like that? It worked!


I’ll Be on the Air Wednesday Night

Grant Warren will have me as his guest on By the Fireplace Wednesday at 10 p.m. Central time, which will be 11 p.m. for me. Look for By the Fireplace on blogtalkradio.com . I think. You can listen on your computer.

We will be talking about my Bell Mountain novels. I’ve done a number of interviews, but this will be the first time I talk with anyone who has actually read any of my work.

Be prepared to laugh pityingly as I unlimber my slow, creaky, rapidly-aging voice, and pray I don’t say anything  better left unsaid.


My Answer (Part 2)

What I’m hearing from many people is despair. They think the country is past saving: the Left has won, it’ll be all downhill from now on. Unless God personally intervenes.

Certainly the prospect is a daunting one. Thanks to the long negligence of the church (the legacy of Cyrus Scofield and his adherents, who fostered the notion of “Don’t bother, the Rapture’s coming soon”), the de-Christianization of America has had over 100 years to grow very, very high, put out countless branches, and put down exceedingly deep roots.

Personally, I had a sense that when the Supreme Court forced “gay marriage” upon our culture last year, we crossed a line that won’t be easy to cross back. I felt–not reasoned–that we’d burned our bridges.

Now this development would not have been possible without the contribution of the public schools and our fat, overgrown university system. We bear the children and the Left gets to train them. And train them they do.

It’s true that Christians in America don’t have to put up with anything like the lethal persecution suffered by Christians in many countries. Here, all they do is mock us incessantly, turn our children against us, destroy us if we decline to take an active part in a “gay wedding,” and make us pay for other people’s abortions. But few Christians I talk to think it’ll stop there.

Nevertheless, regardless of eschatology, I believe God wants us to try, at least, to turn our country off this evil course. And getting Christian children out of the public schools is the most necessary first step.

It also doesn’t help, that we send our young people to “colleges” swollen to several orders of magnitude beyond their natural capacity, there to learn how to be self-righteous, thin-skinned, ignorant and useless Social Justice Warriors, with inane degrees in This-studies and That-studies, thoroughly indoctrinated by professors who are passionately committed to transforming America into a vast prison camp with themselves as the jailers.

If we can’t get back some degree of control over the education of our children, anything we might attempt politically will be in vain.

Even so, I very much doubt that a President McCain or a President Romney would have publicly described abortion as “how young girls achieve their dreams.” Or sued a state for enforcing the country’s immigration laws. Or urged state attorneys general not to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.

Winning over independents–that’s not so hard. Romney won the independent vote, big-time, but still lost the election. Winning over “other Republicans”–that, too, should be possible especially when the Democrat alternative is known and widely loathed.

So, yes, I’ve devoted a lot of time and effort to politics, without much to show for it.

But the Left didn’t achieve all its victories overnight, nor did they achieve any of them with anything like majority support. The spiritual and cultural havoc they have wreaked on America is testimony to what a determined minority can do when they really put their minds to it.

We must learn to do the same.
