The Screaming that Will Live in Infamy
MOTUS A.D. ^ | 12-7-17 | MOTUS

Franklin Delano Roosevelt called it “a date that will live in infamy.”

But in Google-land, where every other esoteric anniversary/birthday on the face of our diverse, multi-cultural, all-inclusive planet is celebrated to much fanfare, they just couldn’t bring themselves to even mention it. It would probably be considered triggering and that might send the snowflakes to the streets again, screaming.

Imagine what the world would be like today if the Greatest Generation had decided to hold a day of rage rather than fight the people who attacked us.  Imagine if Winston Churchill had told his countrymen to go “scream helplessly at the sky”when the Germans attacked instead of bellicosely advising them that:

“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight! With growing confidence and growing strength in the air! We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the ...streets. We shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!”

Mind you, the people screaming helplessly at the sky today are the same ones who want Israel to surrender to the people who have declared themselves to be sworn enemies of the Jews. They are the ones who will be condemning Trump for fulfilling the promise of every U.S. President since Clinton to move the embassy to Israel’s capital city. Including the Bamster:

"Let me be clear. Israel's security is sacrosanct. It is non-negotiable.

"The Palestinians need a state that is contiguous and cohesive, and that allows them to prosper — but any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel's identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognised and defensible borders.

"Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided. I have no illusions that this will be easy."  Barack Obama June 4, 2008

The only person to be clear around here in a long, long time is President Trump. He promised to return the embassy to Israel’s capital and he did. Wearing his best blue tie.


Let the screaming begin.

LOL. If Pearl Harbor happened today, there would be "shrines" of teddy bears, candles, and Mylar balloons. People would be singing "Kumbaya". Tee shirts proclaiming "Love Not Hate" would be ubiquitous.

There would be "outreach" to the Japanese. We would be told that we instigated Pearl Harbor through our "racism". We would be told that we have to "understand" them and respect their "culture". A massive Shinto temple would be constructed over top of the bones of the USS Arizona.

We would invite Japs to America and give them private tours of our security apparatus and train stations and shipyards. Schoolchildren would be instructed in Japanese religious rituals, and taught Japanese prayers.

Far fetched? Not today.

Dec 7, 1941! A day soon to be as forgotten as April 19, 1775 if the snowflakes get their way. Somehow it will be the US’ fault for the attack.

The greatest generation called so by Tom brokaw a liberal whose premise we all accept like he’s a philosopher, which he is not.

A generation of flawed people the vast majority of who likely suffered from the effects of ptsd and who neglected to pass on religion and the idea of the value of family the martini generation of women who idiotically acceptedformula feeding of their kids with no common sense or evidence who had therefore had kids one after the neglected other with no natural spacing and who later resented instead of warning off their younger counterparts’ access to the scourge artificial birth control

That’s who created baby boomers and baby boomers could do well to quit resenting and blaming their idiotic parents and pass on the tools necessary to protect and preserve this country

Hi, all: On all the Pearl Harbor threads today I'm inviting my FRiends to check out the 50-minute documentary on USS Arizona survivor Lou Conter my son made for his Eagle Scout Project. It really did turn out nicely, and is a very interesting account of December 7 and Mr. Conter’s harrowing adventures as a bomber pilot subsequently. Available ad-free on You Tube. Follow the link at

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like where men were free. ~ Ronald Reagan

By the end of the week, the outrage of a sneak attack will have been recast as a tragedy with yellow ribbons flying throughout the western seaboard. Meanwhile, FDR would have urged Americans to avoid any backlash against the Japanese.

Youth would be marching in the streets against the American imperialism that had us in the Philippines in the first place, while the State Department rushed to assure Germany that Pearl Harbor would not be used as an excuse to confront the Axis.
