“When you're left wounded on Afganistan's plains and
the women come out to cut up what remains, Just roll to your rifle
and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur"
“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”
“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.” “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .” “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."
‘All news has bias’: Why Elon Musk is proving to be a nightmare for the Left cabal, which is petrified of free speech
Wednesday, November 02, 2022
Nobody knows yet if Elon Musk would succeed in making Twitter 'even
handed', but the mere possibility that he could, has sent the Left into a
tizzy. Free speech is the Left's kryptonite and if Elon Musk succeeds,
Twitter may prove to be the end of the Left's hegemony world over.
The Global Left is living its worst nightmare. They have suddenly
been ushered into a dystopian reality where they probably are about to
lose their grip on the absolute monopoly they had on which opinions
should or should not be aired.
They are, perhaps for the first time,
being faced with a situation where a major platform that was meant to
facilitate the democratisation of speech is poised to do just that – let
opposing voices prevail – or that is what it seems like. Recently, the
$44 Billion deal reached its fruition, making Elon Musk the owner of social media giant Twitter.
In the run-up to the deal, the global Left had a meltdown. From the
United States of America, several videos emerged where those who despite
opposing voices, vowed to leave the platform if Elon Musk takes over.
The media was relentless and still is, talking about how democracy would
die in darkness if Elon Musk took over the platform.
One of the first
steps that Musk took, post the takeover, was to fire the top executives of Twitter – CEO Parag Agrawal, legal head and censorship chief Vijaya Gadde and the CFO, Ned Segal.
This is an objective truth that the Left has failed to acknowledge
and in fact, subverted so they can pretend to be credible while being
woefully ideologically and politically driven. The media has long been
monopolised by those who use to cloak of ‘neutrality’ to further their
own political bias. Here is an example that is often pushed under the
rug – while the Left media is more than happy to brand those who don’t
agree with their politics as “fake news”, they have long spread fake
news themselves and get funding from dubious sources as well.
As per reports
that emerged in July 2021, Time Magazine received $700,000, $371,577
was paid to the Financial Times, $291,000 to Foreign Policy Magazine,
$272,000 to Los Angeles Times and over $1 million to other such
prominent media publications. To add to it, as per the Justice
Department, China Daily has also been paying these publications for
advertising. This includes paying The New York Times $50,000, Foreign
The Des Moines Register $34,600 and CQ-Roll Call
$76,000. Besides, all major “neutral” paragons of journalism are owned by those
who have a declared political position. The Guardian has links to
Omidyar, George Soros, the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation and
more and The Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos. In India, Congress
owns large chunks of the media, a fact that is hardly spoken about and
“neutral” journalists display blatant bias while some have familial
connections to political parties and openly bat against opposing
