One Last Chance for Leftists to Wake Up

Inspired by this Trump spot. Please watch first if you haven't, because it frames what I have to say so well. It's only two minutes long. Also, download it, because it keeps getting shoahed.

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

As we close in on a Trump presidency and in the spirit of old-fashioned American decency, I'd like to offer you, the Left collectively, a final chance to recognize and deal with a few key realities before things get very bad for you:

1) The forbearance of straight white men in the face of weaponized rhetorical copypasta like "privilege" and "microaggressions" is not infinite.

2) The willingness of those who drive the engine of productivity to keep busting their asses while increasingly large chunks of their income are extracted by bureaucrats and transferred to the unproductive has long since been exhausted.

3) Both men and women reject the bullshit feminism you've been pushing since the '60s. Most people want families and a partner who complements them sexually, not a shapeless androgyne whose rigid observance of political correctness rites ensures the relationship will provide exactly the same level of excitement as a lukewarm bowl of unflavored oatmeal.

4) Barbarism is very literally at the gates of our civilization. You have thus far been unwilling to pause the unfailingly shrill streams of petulant, low-information second-guessing that is, ironically, the only material you seem to produce (and in inexhaustible supply), even long enough to notice the barbarians' battle cries.

5) You write thinkpieces, hold up signs, and tyrannize gullible college students. We read history, carry guns, and defend ourselves when attacked.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy—willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

It really is that simple. You can't deny that increasing numbers of Americans see Trump as our best chance to salvage what's left of the West from your failed ideology. So it doesn't matter whether you think we're racist, sexist, homophobic, antisemitic, or any other ist or ism. Whether you see it or not, we know we're defending our homes, families, and lives from the threats you've helped create or allowed to metastasize through your unmanly cowardice and capitulation. You always demand that we understand the perspective of the Other. Yet we are your Other. We feel no sense of connection to you, and no sense of pity at the thought of your discomfort. So when you do drop that last straw onto the camel's back—and you're very close—the blowback will be swift, massive, and unimaginably brutal. Your words and manipulation will offer no protection. You have demonized, atomized, feminized, guilted, blackmailed, and sabotaged the works of the men of the West for far too long. We have no tolerance left. We cannot be pushed any further. We know who you are, we know what you want, and you need to know that if you continue to interfere with the restoration of our country, our honor, and our culture, the response will be like nothing your coddled elementary-school imaginations can conceive of.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

If you absorb nothing else, remember this: every aspect of the Leftist platform depends on the compliance of able men. If we stop complying, your iPhones and Starbucks and Whole Foods will stop existing. Do you get that? Does it sink in at all? As a former liberal, I genuinely want you to think about this. There is no magic. Money doesn't grow on trees. Demands only work if the supply exists and you've got bigger guns or a willing supplier. You've had the guns of the government pointed where you wanted them for 50 years; how, I have to ask, do you propose to go on sniping from your ivory tower once the government starts taking the side of its own people?

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

Civilization gets built and maintained because men with agency, talent, vision, and skill decide it's in their best interests to build it—whether for economic, defensive, or female-attracting reasons. Stop wowjustwowing long enough to look around and see the world as it is instead of as you wish it were. Accept the human condition. Understand the difference between striving for an ideal and letting the perfect be the enemy of the good enough. Understand, most of all, that this is not a game anymore. You're not at the end of history, performing mop-up duty on the disintegrating legacy of a reactionary patriarchal past. We are the majority and our silence has allowed you to get away with half a century of LARPing in a real-life dollhouse where feelings are prime and little girls are watched over by protective daddies.

Well, we're not your parents, and the bill for all those years of free lunches is coming due. The dream world is crumbling. We don't need or want your participation, as you have proven yourselves unworthy of even the lowliest levels of power. We require only that you stand aside. Our payment in the end will be the satisfaction of knowing that, as in centuries past and against all enemies foreign and domestic, we'll have managed once more to secure the existence of our people and a future for our children.

It was not suddenly bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.
