This morning I pulled a recent comment here on the MSB Open-Forum, which deserved its own stand-alone post:
Guest post by “Prepper Dan”
I went to bed one night thinking I was just a regular person, a good God fearing Christian conservative with strong morals and values that loved their country. When I woke up the next morning, it seemed like the whole world had changed. I now find myself labeled as evil and an enemy of the people.
The below post comes from myself and several posts I found from social media sites and MSB.
I was born white into a two-parent household, which apparently makes me “Privileged”, “racist”, and “responsible for slavery”. Speaking of “white privileged”, I was never given anything and the few breaks I got, I considered as well earned.
I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a “fascist” because I plan and budget. But I now find out that I am not here because I earned it, but because I was “advantaged”.
I am heterosexual, which according to some people now makes me a “homophobe”. Does that make them a heterophobe?
I am not a Muslim, which now makes me as an “infidel”.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me “a threat to the liberals” and I subsequently get labeled as being “part of a militia”.
I demand the justice system be fair and balanced. To apply equal justice among all citizens, which now labels me as, yes, you guessed it, a “Racist”.
I am older than 40, making me a “useless person with outdated ideas and values”. I think, reason, and I doubt much of what the main stream media tells me, which makes me a “Right-wing conspiracy nut”.
I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, making me a “xenophobe”.
I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me “target of socialist and Antifa”.
I think males and females should go to the restroom based on their birth sex, so I am labeled a “sexist”.
I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort – not freedom of outcome or subsidies, which makes me a “borderline sociopath”.
I believe in a strong defense and protection of America for and by all citizens, now making me a “militant”. I am proud of our flag, what it stands for, and the many who died to let it fly, thus I stand and salute during our National Anthem – so I must be a “racist”.
I think the Confederate monuments around our country symbolizes history, so I’m labeled as having “hate in my heart” when some are suddenly offended by their presence (which have been in plain view for YEARS).
I’m labeled as “racist” when thinking that the erasing of history will potentially cause us to repeat the problems.
I think that ALL lives matter, which also makes me as a “racist”. I refuse to put the lives of one race above another, so I must be a “racist”.
I think the riots and destruction of property around our country is wrong and is just an excuse to push a political agenda, so again, I’m labeled a “racist”.
I support the good cops, which also labels me as a “racist”.
I believe in a small government and push for less restrictions, so now I’m looked upon as a “domestic terrorist”.
I question how fear is being used to control us for political gain during the COVID-19 pandemic, so I’m labeled “careless and unsympathetic”.
Liberals have tried to make me feel bad about who I am. Based on everything above, some want me to believe I am a bad person. I’m not, I’m a good person who loves my God and country!
I work hard every day just to make a living and I don’t have time for their PC BS! I don’t go out looking for a fight but when it comes to my door, I will not back down. There will come a time where you must choose, stand and fight or GTFOOTW!
If you disagree, I could really care less!!!
