This chapter is not needed for all my regular readers except one and he is not Farmer John or Mr Beamish. Most Conservatives and moderates are well aware of these points. We generaly sit in astonishment as the far left makes claims that are fiction.
Claim Number 1 Women are opressed by patriarchy in the USA.
Women live longer are better educated then men in the USA. Men are far more likely to be in prison , be homeless, abuse drugs, commit suicide and die in a work place related accident. The wage gap is reflective of years women leave the workforce to raise children. If this is patriarcy it must be an incompetant version.
Overseas the picture is comedic as women are less educated then men in India, Africa and the Muslim Word. Women have forced abortions in China and female infanticides occur in China and India. Muslim women are forced to wear bhurkas in some places. Muslim women may be killed for being raped. Muslim women may be honor killed on the slightest whims of their relatives. Female Genital mutilation is widely practiced in Africa. Women are sold into marriage in some part of the Muslim world. In other parts of the world they are forced to aquire husbands with a dowery. Brides whose families fail to meet the dowery may be burned in India.
Where are the feminists in the war against Jihadism ?
2 America is the leading cause of pollution on the planet.
Nine out of the top ten most polluted ccitties in the world are in China. Americans do not pollute New Delhi or Mexico City. The communist record on the environment in the Soviet Union was disasterous. Chernobyl was the mere tip of the iceberg.
All six types of air pollutants are down from 1975. Richard Nixon passed the clean air act contrary to popular opinion on the deranged left. There is more Forrest land today then in 1980. The number of new trees has exceeded those harvested every year since 1952.
The Cuyahoga river which one caught fire is now safe for fishing. The Mississippi river is cleaner the the Ganses, Danube, Thames , Rhine or Seine. Technology has made water and energy consumption more efficient..
In fact much of the environmental furor has shifted the burdens of pollution to the third world where there are no safe guards. People die in Africa due to malaria due to the ban on DDT. Apple growers in the USA go out of business due to fake Alar scares and loggers are injured by terrorist actions of environmentalists.
I will have a post on this topic that will run on Bad Eagle shortly called Paradise Never Was. Much of the environmental movement is based on fanciful tales of imaginary Edens.
Myth 3 America is a Racist Nation
Americans accounted for a mere 3% of the global African slave trade. One can readily
see the descendants of slaves in the USA. One can not readily find the descendants of African slaves in Muslim countries where far more were taken.
People of all races vote with their feet and emigrate to the USA. These immigrants if legal are given full rights and acceptance into society. Try emigrating to Japan, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and see if you or your children will get the same acceptence.
Outside of Western Civilization slavery was considered the norm. Western Colonialism put an end to the practice. In the isolated areas where it exists today are overwhelmingly Muslim areas. Communism created a series of Slaves in their gulag system that the left ignores.
Black people in the USA are wealthier then black people anywhere else in the world.
Blacks are enslaved by Arabs in Sudan and elsewhere. Blacks kill white farmers in Zimbabwe. Blacks expelled Idians from Uganda without a peep from the left. Idoneaseans Muslims have killed ethnic Chinese as well as Christians. Black Cubans fare less well then their white counterparts so much for utopia. The Soviet Union depoted whole ethnic groups where 1/3 died.
4 The United States is an Imperial Power.
The far left complains of imperialism and points to Starbucks, Mc Donalds, Hollywood Films and Walmart. These businesses serve customers abroad and would not be there otherwise. Communist fail Eco 1001 and do not understand Coca Cola and Proctor & Gamble are for proffit enerprises.
The USA has used its military power to defeat Nazism and Communism. The forays in Afghanistan an area that has zero of economic interest to the USA were to clean out Jihadist Radicals. The USA will depart Iraq when the Army can protect itself. The left said next to zero about rampant human rights abuses by Saddam. The French, Brittish and Soviet Empires rulled vast tracts of territory. The USA granted the Phillipines independence after WW2 . Puerto Rico has voted to maintain its status several times.
Myth Five The Rich Get Richer.......
America has plenty of sucsess stories such as Federal Express, Microsoft etc. We have a society that rewards innovaton. However Rush Limbaugh still gives the best recipie for avoiding poverty. Get an education , have your kids in wedlock and your odds of poverty decrease dramatically. I will add staying away from drugs and alcohol also helps.
The normal serialization will stop when David Horowitz new book arrives. I will look at serializing the book and a probable Bad Eagle Review. I am reading in Dennial Historians Communism and Espionage by Klehr & Haynes. I might not serialize that book and give it a general review. However I will give the readers some say in the next serialization .Even our official troll Duncy will get a vote as he is our staff wet blanket.
The new post on Bad Eagle will take aim at the Greens. I am seriously mulling over another Bad eagle Submission based upon In Dennial and Horowitz's new book with a touch of Flynn. The Inmates have Taken Over The Assylum in Academia about the perversion of higher ed into an over prices Marxist brainwashing experiment.
Mr Beamish in 08, Ducky to leave AFLAC for botching lines and 167 to eat governmet cheese with his fellow parasites.
