“Doesn’t It Bother You, Arresting Your Own Kind?”

Great video from The Daily Signal about Arturo Payan, the son of an illegal alien who became a Border Patrol Agent in California. His thoughtful words say all that needs to be said about why we need to secure our borders.

Tumblr Dumblr: Queering The Culture Edition

There’s been a lot of discussion on the right lately about how liberals have taken over the culture and infected it with their point of view. In particular, LGTB propaganda has become practically ubiquitous, so much so that I can’t recall the last time I watched a non-children’s show that didn’t have a prominent gay character, usually one whose sexuality is his/her only defining trait.

But according to this little Tumblrina (gender TBD), in regards to the book industry, the so-called Gay Mafia hasn’t nearly gone far enough:

LGTB 1

That’s a wicked awesome comeback by the second poster, I’ll grant you, but still, wow. Here I thought the point was for gays to have equal representation, a seat at the table. But no, people like “stereolights” will not be happy until the leftist propaganda drowns out any wrongthink. I have yet to hear a conservative say anything along these lines about the culture. We just want the propaganda to stop so we can all enjoy our culture again. They want it to grow and spread like a virus until it wipes out any and all disagreement. When you realize that this is the Left’s goal, it makes perfect sense when successful, conservative-themed shows like Last Man Standing get cancelled.

On the other hand, check out what this user has to say about Hollywood’s depiction of transgender people:

LGTB 2

Well, there you go. At first glance, this would seem like a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation, where liberals will simultaneously complain about not enough LGTB representation in the culture, and too much. And while it’s true that they tend to be a very logically inconsistent group, consider this: the first user is addressing queer authors, and encouraging them to propagandize more, and the second is addressing “cis” aka straight people, and complaining about the LGTB propaganda they make.

These snowflakes aren’t mad because there’s not enough leftist propaganda in our culture, they’re mad because they’re not in charge of it. It’s all about power with these people, and it always will be. They don’t want our culture to represent them, they want it to belong to them. It’s their most powerful weapon to promote Marxism, and like the spoiled children they are, they don’t want to share it with anyone else. They’re the Veruca Salts of the culture: they want it all, they want it now, and they will stomp their feet and scream until it all belongs to them.
