If you control the language, you control the argument
If you control the argument, you control information
If you control information, you control history
If you control history, you control the past

I had been looking for a way to address this very prescient, profound and fundamental topic, and it just so turns out that the eleven-year-old “news” that “broke” yesterday regarding #Donald Trump speaking on a hot mic have provided the perfect opportunity to do so. If you haven’t seen the actual video, I’d highly recommend clicking on the referenced link. While it is PG-13 rated (in my view), it’s important that you know, as a concerned citizen, what he actually said and the context in which he said it.
As a sidebar, further note that there were simultaneous “leaks” of Hillary Clinton emails that were revealed via at least two sites, so at least from a political perspective, there are anecdotal inferences that Secretary Clinton either moved (if intentional) or is enjoying the move (if unintentional) of focus off of her statements over to Mr. Trump.
For every tweet or talking head I’ve heard who has castigated Trump for his comments, I’ve seen plenty of reaction from “regular folks” who have defended the man.
I, too, will take what might be seen as a highly controversial stance and I will continue to stand by Mr. Trump though this alleged issue.
The reality is that Mr. Trump is categorically and undeniably the head of the “basket of deplorables” or, the ultimate “every man.”
What I mean by this is that Donald Trump is the quintessential archetype of the anti feminization of the American culture, a culture in which any semblance of an alpha male is construed as being racist, sexist and homophobic (never mind that the alpha-ness of a male member of the human species has absolutely zero to do with ethnicity, the inference of superiority of the two sexes, and certainly nothing to do with sexual orientation).
In other words, if you are a man and you are aggressive enough to lead in your particular circle of influence, that is characterized as bad or even evil.
This is the essence of a large aspect of political correctness and its sister in reconstituting the English language, feminizing culture.
Circling back to what Donald Trump actually said in the video, this is language that all men state at some point in their lives, typically between each other (in other words, not in “mixed” company, typically defined as including women in such banter), and if they deny that they’ve said anything even remotely euphemistic about lady parts, they’re lying. It’s as simple as that. And this isn’t just a male phenomenon; it works with women, too.
Let me remind you that this type of language is not objectifying women for the purposes of somehow invoking deviant behavior against them. This is simply a look inside of the male mind, and the more sexual that that male is, the more that this kind of thought process is pronounced. To get rid of this would be to remove the history-old process that, to be perfectly frank and blunt, God put into men.
Men are aggressive and they tend to be sexual beings, and this is by divine design. That’s why I’m defending the intent of what’s going on here, because it is a part of what it means to be a man. It’s what causes men to make “cat-calls” to women they find beautiful, and it’s too bad that this is castigated. And by the way, Trump is absolutely correct in stating that when you’re a star (high-profile person), most people get “star-struck” and will let you do whatever you want to with them. Instead of being an excuse to do anything, this is another phenomenon that is real.
Now, on the flip side. We’re also going to hear allegations of women who are trying to sue Donald Trump because they allege he raped them. This is something completely different.
Let me explain why this is completely different.
What men say about women within the context of sexuality absolutely cannot be tied to the fact that some men have no moral boundaries and will rape women. Why is this? Because if every time a man had a sexual thought about a woman was to be absolutely construed as condoning rape, I’d say that the human race would very quickly come to an end, because we wouldn’t be producing any more children! In fact, for those women who may be equally sexually aggressive and had these thoughts, then we would have to say (in taking this irrational thought process to its logical extent) that women are always raping men simply because they had a sexual thought.
So, I immediately state there is a serious and huge dichotomy between sexual thought and the intent to rape. While I don’t have the statistics with me, my understanding is that rape is about power, but that’s not the same power as the aggressiveness that most men exhibit.
Political correctness wants you to think the opposite of what I’m espousing, that when someone speaks euphemistically (no matter how vulgar) about lady’s (don’t forget the opposite for men on the part of women!) body parts, that somehow that’s bad. Why? Why is this bad?
It’s only bad in the sense that the cultural elites are trying to play your mommy (feminization) and are trying to tell you what you can or cannot think about anyone or anything. This is a prime example of the matrix of political correctness. Somebody out there — whom you don’t even know — is dictating to you what is and is not acceptable language.
Is this to say that using any sort of language is always acceptable in every social situation? Of course not, but that’s not the same as political correctness. This concept describes decorum depending on social situation; political correctness attempts to redefine the language based upon someone’s standard of language.
To sum up, I believe that you can think exactly and precisely whatever you want to think in the imagination of your own mind. I believe that, in certain circles (such as close friends, etc.), you should be free to speak your mind about anything you want to. And, like Trump, if somehow what you said privately gets public, then you apologize — not for what you said (perhaps), but for the fact that some things aren’t meant for everyone to hear.
In conclusion, here’s a palate cleanser found on Facebook that brings us all back to reality:
“We don’t care if the guy swears… or how many times he’s been married…or who he voted for, or what his income tax return shows. We want the problems fixed. Yes he’s an egomaniac, but we don’t care. We know he’s not a racist, or bad to women, or all the other things the liberal media is trying to label him with. We know he’s raised a good family, and that says a lot about him.
The country is a mess because politicians suck, the #Republican Party is two faced & gutless, and illegals are everywhere and Muslims are openly trying to hurt this country and make the civilized world adjust to them. We want it all fixed!
We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he has changed positions, we don’t care that he fights with Megan Kelly, Rosie O’Donnell, and so many of the elected establishment. We don’t care that Rubio, Ryan, the Bush’s, and so many other top old and new Republicans refuse to endorse him for their own selfish reasons, and we know what they are. We don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslim terrorists, we don’t care that he tried some businesses that didn’t work out.
This country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegals, we are becoming a nation of victims, where every Tom, Ricardo and Hasid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in, AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED. And TRUMP is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.
We’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic and Republican Party. We’re angry about the Iran deal, the budget, treatment of Israel, military weakness, lobbyists, special interests, overpaid politicians with their self serving bills and back room deals, trade deals, loss of jobs, manipulated economic numbers, businesses fleeing, and even the phoney pay for play Clinton Foundation.
Americans are no longer going to be fooled, and the movement is out to change the direction we’re taking. Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn’t have lobbyist money holding him, he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him, and all you know is that he has been very successful, a good negotiator, he has built a lot of things, he’s flexible, and he’s also not a politician. And he says he’ll fix it. And we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.
Public service has become elected greed. This may be our only chance to have a non-politician, despite his flaws, try and correct the mess, at least for 4 years. We must take the shot, because the consequences of putting Hillary Clinton in office are frightening. There is a tidal wave happening, and its going to overcome much of what’s happened to this country.”
