Paladin’s AMERICAN GOMORRAH ™ “Two Impostors” Edition

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

An excerpt from IF by Rudyard Kipling, written for his only son John, who died  in 1915 on the Western Front. He was only 18. 


Paladin knows
a few millennials – half of them never read a Kipling poem or anything else by him. Most of them know only the Disney plushie versions of his tales. And the other half wouldn’t read Kipling because they have been instructed to consider the man a privileged white race criminal worthy only of revulsion, censor and book burning.

These are the modern intellectuals.

 

 

One such intellectually and emotionally crippled creature recently refused to watch the 1937 movie Lost Horizon because the casting made Him/Her/Zie angry and was “racist”. I suggested reading the book. And also suggested reading Fahrenheit 451. And watching Truffaut’s 1966 film for good measure. Hopefully, Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 will remain a cautionary tale and not turn into a “How To” guide.

1937 was 83 years ago, yet a thirty-something progressive can’t watch it without getting enraged. Tragic that so much of the world has been ruined for so many. How soon before Bradbury and Truffaut are banned?

 

 

As Mrs. Paladin quipped, “Don’t tell them about Pearl S. Buck.” Verboten.  Better not read The Good Earth or the see film (also made in 1937) – racist casting, white woman writer. What are we ever going to do with actors Paul Muni and Luise Rainer? Banish them, of course.

 


When Kipling wrote the poem –
If he had yet to lose his son in France, in that last gasp of 19th century empire known at World War I. It was to his son, John he addressed the staves.  And soLt. John Kipling, dead in the mud of the Western Front would never live to see his own life ruined  or get to build his own life up again with broken tools. The Wikipedia entry of this young man’s death is a cold and soulless account by some Prog Borg lefty scribbler, who curdled the tale. Such a worm doesn’t deserve the blood spilled on Her/Him/Zie’s behalf across countless  battlefields.

How many more tales are yet to be curdled?  Again, another film from 1937, Fire Over England a historical drama played out against the greatest tyranny of the age, King Philip II’s Spain and his mighty Armada. In the movie, Flora Robson as Elizabeth I comforts a weepy lady-in-waiting, Vivien Leigh:  

I’ve seen blacker fears turn to hope. Hope on until there is none.”

Flora Robson’s Elizabeth meets the crisis, all gunpowder and steel and the guts required to beat it back. When she confronts the English aristocratic traitors in her midst, she stands before them, weaponless, “Well, you have swords, kill me now.” Look for bravery like this today only in the most unlikely places.  A truck driver, a banished poll worker, someone giving evidence under penalty of perjury.

 

 

Here at VGirls, Boudicca VGirl, Toni Williams cut through all the crap to school DC Cuck Lady Byron of York: If we let Big Tech, the Media Industrial Complex and the talking heads convince us to roll over and let them steal this election, there will never be another free election.

Never another free election. That’s when the imposter of electoral victory slams down the coffin lid on our Republic for good. The next 60 days will tell.

You know what is happening.  An election has been stolen. A pretender elevated to the highest office while a Rasputin VP waits in the wings.  Waiting for Humpty Biden to fall while all the Kings horses and all the Kings men, stab the rightful winner in the back in plain view of the court. The Washington Press corps, the Lickspittle Media, half the AGs and Justices may not admit the stinking corpse of the Republic lies dead at their feet, but this fact is not lost on our enemies or our friends and half this country.

 

Through bribery, a nearly harmless bioweapon and outright fraud, China has turned half this nation into Venezuela so that the other half, the patriotic half will have no choice but to fight or secede. China counted only on the cowardice of our intellectual betters, our elites. And they didn’t disappoint. The CIA, the FBI, the DOJ and the rest of the alphabet clerisy leapt to China’s side without a second thought. And all without firing a shot, a stunning strategic achievement.

We are no longer, “one nation under God.” God was removed long ago, and the one nation broken up for scrap.

All to the cheers of the Acela Intellectuals and the bi-coastal, credentialed smug thugs. A chorus of eunuchs have called the Texas Scotus Case frivolous and last Friday afternoon, the Cowards in Robes agreed.  Making the only thing frivolous, the high court itself. This is not about Trump, if it ever was, it’s about whether we let a stolen election stand.  Far too many on our side have joined the stealers against the stolen. They are no longer on the side of freedom but measuring their own necks and ours for the iron collar and iron mask. No doubt they hope their wiki entries will be kinder than John Kipling’s.

    Actually the greatest tyranny of the 16th century was the Ottoman Empire with their designs on conquering Europe all in the name of “The Religion of Peace”. You should know that.

    • Paladin says:

      Point taken

    • Paladin says:

      Maybe. The Ottomans were an extension of the Muhammadan conquest of the the Mediterranean and further east in Eurasia — the Spanish/Portuguese on the other hand, crossed an ocean and conquered whole continents in the New World which last to this day under Spanish influence — something Islam never did.

    With the amount of discrepancy in the Battleground states election results, and the Lame stream media’s continued attempts at legitimizing the results, ….throughout Our Country……..
    Take into consideration the cost of recounts, and the lawyers involved.
    We should have requested another election in those states only.
    A walk in and vote, with the National Guard STANDING IN THE WINGS AND PARTIES FROM BOTH SIDES
    Witnessing the vote count.
    President Trump by a Landslide……….

    Sleepy Joe, and Kamala… Watch What The Dems will have done to OUR Country.

    Lock up YOUR Homes, & Arm yourself. Antifa will be heading to the Suburbs next.

      I’d like to laugh at you, call you an alarmist and in need of change of U-Trou — problem is, this is exactly what’s going to happen. Georgia is probably going to fall to the radical left and the whole hairball of socialism is going to be crammed down our throats. They’ll try anyway.

    • Taylor says:

      The Ottomans took tens of thousands (perhaps even 100,000) of Christians as slaves when they would raid Sicily, Southern Spain, Sardinia, Cyprus, and Greece. You can guess what was done to the Christian women who were taken. The Ottomans were the biggest disaster for Europe during those days.

    Oh palidin.. what are we to do? What happens when the book burning starts? When schools completely fail to teach history (grammar is already gone as is math as we knew it)? The kids are watching.. they know something happened but those with leftard parents will think this all ok.. and if the courts agree it’s all ok why bother voting? We are right where the elites want us.. and that is out of the way for them to control us completely.. some of us may put up a fight but if we are not financially secure we will be squashed like bugs trying to steal a taste of the left victory cake left out for all to be reminded who rules now…

    • Paladin says:

      To quote an apocrypha — They have awakened a sleeping giant, Diana — and filled him with a terrible resolve.

        Love from father to son, military service, surrendering life because of a greater calling, men, white people, anything pre 2010, and pronouns are all obsolete and how dare anyone question this new status quo…. Thanks for the nostalgia.

  • Teslaca says:

    The millenials are the product of the leftist public schools. No surprise that many are uneducated, indoctrinated, can’t think for themselves and only want to destroy what they don’t agree with. The eradication of history is sad and frightening. It’s why so many are accepting of this criminally manipulated election.

  • AndI says:

    Incredibly disturbing indeed. Our voices must be loud and clear

  • RW says:

    We have pulled through so many catastrophes because we were strong and we came together. Problem is that libs are fracturing us from every fundamental angle. And millennials on down are so intrinsically weak.
