Get off your knees!

Get off your knees!

Remember back in 2016 when Iran’s clown navy captured a US naval vessel?  A gleeful and gloating Iran spread those propaganda pictures of US sailors on their knees before their Iranian captors.

US Sailors on their knees

It was the most shameful thing ever.

And rather than express outrage over it, the Obama State Department, led by the horse-faced Secretariat of State John Kerry fell figuratively to its knees and groveled to Iran.

Well, clearly that groveling embrace of submission offered by the Obama Administration is still infecting the US Military.

Yesterday members of the National Guard went to their knees during a street protest.

And apparently we’re all supposed to be THRILLED at how wonderful it is.

Yeah. No.

I’m not thrilled. It isn’t wonderful.

It’s disgusting.

Get off your knees, you idiots!

I couldn’t agree more.

But now you understand what I meant when I said in my previous post that the campus culture of collective guilt and victimhood has infected the entire nation.

It is not just Leftist activists, Limousine Liberals or sycophantic Democrat politicians, but US Military personnel on their knees.

As Jesse Kelly put it, “What you’re seeing is the end result of 50+ years of capitulation in the culture wars. Yesterday, it was your sociology professor. Today, it’s your CEOs, politicians, and military leaders.”

And like the Iranians did with those US sailors in 2016, the Leftists who have infected our once exceptional nation will gleefully broadcast this moment of submission – all the while gloating at what they’ve brought us to.

They don’t want justice; they want surrender.

They don’t want equality; they want capitulation.

Forcing US Military personnel to their knees used to be something only America’s enemies did. Now the US Military is doing it to themselves.

Remember all that media twaddle about President Trump supposedly diminishing America’s standing in the world? Well, how is our standing looking when US Military personnel are voluntarily dropping to their knees?

These men make us look weak and capitulating.

You think China or Iran see this video of Guardsmen on their knees and think, “Boy, those guys are gonna be tough to beat.”

Not in the least.

America’s enemies are salivating at the sight of this.

Honestly, what is wrong with people?

    Every one of these pansy ass weekend warriors needs to be IDed, shamed and kicked the fuck out of MY armed forces.
    They abandoned their post, court-martial their asses.

      Copy that!

  • June 4, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    BOOM! Dianny, that is the EXACT photo that I remembered when I saw our National Guard Soldiers kneeling in front of these protestors. THE OFFICER in Charge should be COURTS MARSHALLED. These Troops didn’t do it on their own. Some ranking individual told them to do it.

      So should they shot the protesters?
      Mace them?
      Beat them?
      Shove them?
      That’s what I’ve seen police doing to peacefully protesting people.
      Don’t conflate protesters and looters
      Looters are thieves looking for an excuse

      • June 4, 2020 at 6:40 pm

        Odd binary choice you’ve presented here. Kneel or shoot them? Are you serious? Don’t be foolish.

        • June 4, 2020 at 6:46 pm

          “But sir, if I stand like an honorable soldier, I’ll have no choice but to open fire” is what William here thinks. Hilarious.

      • June 4, 2020 at 7:45 pm

        No one said shoot, shove, beat.

        If you can only see two options, you’re a part of the problem.

        The soldiers are there to keep watch OVER the crowd, not the be spectators in it.

        • June 4, 2020 at 8:23 pm

          I can’t believe what I’m seeing.
          I know that the ‘tards have won the culture war. (I won’t quit fighting, don’t worry.)
          What? with Google, Twitter and FB it’s just a matter of time before it’s completely acceptable to target conservatives where they live and work &
          Now Antifa can make our Guard drop to their knees in front of them …, to what? …., apologize for “white privilege”?!!
          This is NUTS!
          It IS Orwells 1984.
          Idk…, I just don’t know what to do anymore.

            Reminds me of Orwell..but more like the movie Dr Zhivago..the moment the Russian Army heard Vladimir Lenin had returned to Moscow…and the Russian Army decided to quit fighting the Germans..but to return home and overthrow the Czar…if the military capitulated to this insanity.,its over..Do you people see how dangerous this is?

      • June 4, 2020 at 10:52 pm

        William, you are a really big part of the problem. Do you think everyone who refuses to bow down to the BlackLivesMatter communist funded radicals hates black people?

        Like I heard earlier today, they had the same mindset in Communist China in the sixties when the cultural police brain-washed the youth to go through out the country and make everyone get on their knees and swear allegiance to the Party; anyone not doing it were ridiculed, shamed and worse; rounded up for “re-education”. Sound familiar? BlackLivesMatter is just another arm of communism; hiding under a blanket of “were just making sure every black man has rights and equality”. But they have no idea that the elites running it are puppets of George Soros to the tune of $650,000.

        There is a poster out there that shows Mr. Soros promising to enflame the Black Rights movement and push them to violence. He is allegedly saying in the poster; “because blacks are easy to manipulate”. Looking at Sharpton today, I think he’s right.

        How about just man your post? You were not put there to initiate conflict or join the protest.

        “Here, let me carry your sign. Hold my gun.”

      • June 5, 2020 at 3:48 pm

        What peaceful protesters? Every mob that disrupts the people’s right to their streets, the opportunity to do business as usual, the benefit of institutions that are in place through the democratic process .. all of that is rebellion against the society that feeds them. “Peaceful” protesters who provide cover for rioters and looters are like the “moderate Muslims” who won’t stop their jihadi brothers from beheading people because the beheading serves the “moderates'” purposes.

        If there were any intention to protest peacefully, the demonstrators would confine their activities to city hall or the governor’s offices. Everyone who refers to the mobs as peaceful is kneeling in dhimmi fashion.

    Disgrace to the uniform and our country

  • June 4, 2020 at 7:28 pm

    It is unfortunate that they have to be there at all, but to take a knee is ridiculous. This is the stupid shit one would expect of the Great Black Hope. I thought we were rid of him.

  • June 4, 2020 at 7:44 pm

    I’m Caribbean-American. Son of immigrants. I’m nervous when I speak to cops. People in my community for many various reasons have high suspicion and antagonistic relationships with cops.

    I respect them, love them. But I also know my constitutional rights and responsibilities. I don’t give law enforcement permission to search my person or property without a warrant. In a word, I’m a conservative.

    I can see the value of the protests (not looting and rioting) and the value of protecting protesters and innocent bystanders.

    I can see NO value in kneeling for any talk. If it was a pro-American speech, the military and police in uniform present should not clap. If it is an anti-American speech, the same. Your opinion and sympathies are on pause when you put on the uniform. You literally have one single job: uphold and defend the constitution.

    • June 5, 2020 at 4:02 pm

      “I can see the value of the protests ..”
      Don’t be so sure that your idea of peaceful protest is what motivates the majority of those who join mobs like these we are seeing. Protest and occasional civil disobedience are great tools for wronged citizens but are nothing short of insurrection when they are employed by malcontents who can’t specify – factually – why they are protesting.

  • June 4, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    This demonstration was disgusting and if they are not reprimanded it sets dangerous precedent.

    Imagine not knowing whether your comrades have an eye on your six or are fawning lovingly at the speaker in a protest…while cops and military in other parts of the country are being ambushed and shot at. How does this make an honest soldier feel when he gets back into his vehicle. I would have stood and the crowd would have jeered and cursed at me. Then what would my brother do? Force me to kneel? Immediately upon returning to base, I would have demanded a reassignment. Disgusting.

    This is craziness.

  • June 4, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    That pisses me off big time. Who the hell is their commander?

    Can any of us imagine our fathers, uncles, brothers, grandfathers who served in WWII or Vietnam doing this? No freakin’ way!

  • June 4, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    Better to die standing up than live on your knees.
