America’s silent majority, silent no mas

September 6, 2015

ApathyThey rise with the sun, some even before. In the city they catch the first leg of a four transfer cross town commute to hold on to that must have job. In the country they’re feeding the livestock, milking the cows or fueling the machinery that feeds the world. In kitchens north to south, east to west, lunches are packed, homework is checked and backpacks filled. And across the nation, they prepare the shop to switch on the “open” sign.

They claim no special privilege, they demand no extra benefits. They just want to raise their families and live their lives in the manner that their God and the Founding Fathers intended. Where “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” isn’t just a slogan from history but exercised each and every day.

And they are tired.

They are tired of being called racists, homophobes, xenophobes, bigots, misogynists, intolerant, fear mongers, hate mongers, or whatever phrase du jur the enforcers of political correctness have concocted to shut down debate and force conformity.

They are tired of watching law enforcement officers gunned down in cold blood as the rhetoric of racism begins to take its toll. They see with their own eyes, the taking of life and the destruction of property by thugs propped up by George Soros funded organizations that thrive on violence and division. And they notice when networks don’t find Minnesota Black Lives Matter marchers chanting “Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon” worth even a 30 second mention in their nightly newscasts.

They know that America is a nation of immigrants but they also know that those who came previous came to embrace and assimilate not demand and demonstrate. They remember great grandparents speaking German, French, Russian, Swedish, Norwegian, Czech, Polish, Spanish, Chinese at home but insisting that English be spoken in public. Not because they were racists, but because English, the language of their new country, was also the universal language of business. And if there was anything at the heart of being American, it was engaging in the commerce of America.

Their common sense tells them that nothing good comes from unsecured borders. They see it at their schools where budgets put English as a second language and political correctness ahead of the three R’s that won WWII and put men on the moon. They see it in their taxes as reports confirm that over half of immigrant households in the U.S. receive some sort of taxpayer funded subsidy.

They could care less what Tommy and Tim or Sally and Sue do in their bedroom, but they can’t for the life of them figure out why their daughters should be forced to share a bathroom with a biologically male teenager just because he “identifies” as a girl.

70 years after the end of World War II, they shake their heads at the joy of so many in the Democrat party cheering a President who’s major foreign policy achievements are a Middle East in flames and Iran getting $150 billion dollars to further spread terrorism while they bide their time till getting their very own nuke.

They are the “silent majority” that is propelling, Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina to the top of the Republican primary polls.

And they are scaring the hell out of the political and media elite who now find their precious pedestals shaking underneath their pompous arses.

You will not see them demonstrating in the streets or hear them chanting “death to the pigs” but rest assured that come November 8, 2016 they will be heard.

For that silent majority is silent no mas.
