Leftists refuse to admit that mental illness is an UNDESIRABLE DISABILITY.

The reason I worked so hard to mitigate the effects of severe PTSD, anxiety, and depression was that I HATED BEING UNHAPPY.

I accept that happiness is beyond me.

But I've achieved peace of mind.
Leftism encourages normalizes mental illness in its adherents while claiming that political dissidents are mentally ill.

In the US, this started in earnest in 1962, with the publication of Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Americans began taking all their social cues from HOLLYWOOD.

The narrative became, "Those who we call mentally ill are actually the sanest among us."

Even though THE SAME PEOPLE attack political dissidents as mentally ill.
Hollywood says that the Vietnam War was total insanity.


The Vietnam War wasNOTHING compared to World War One.

There's not ONE SANE THING about the Great War.
In Vietnam, we suffered 47,434 battle deaths in ten years.

In World War One, we suffered 53,402 battle deaths in SIX MONTHS.

The two sides dug trenches from Switzerland to the North Sea, sat in them for FOUR YEARS, and died by the millions.
And that was just the WESTERN FRONT.

There was also the eastern front, the Italian front, the Middle East, and East Africa.

Nothing but futile killing.

Modern weapons used by men with 19th century minds.

At the start of American combat operations, we used 1914 tactics.
Got slaughtered.

We had the PERFECT Lewis light machine gun.

But we replaced it in France with the vastly inferior French Chauchat.

It held only 20 rounds in magazines open to MUD, and the parts from any two guns were not interchangeable.

So our troops usually threw them away.

The smallest fighting unit was the 59-man platoon.

Impossible to control.
And we never trained assault specialists.

The Germans trained EVERY MAN IN THE ARMY in assault tactics, and they created ad hoc "shock troops" of any size by simply putting together as many men as they needed.

We had two tanks:
The British Mark V was one.

The "male" had two 57mm guns and three machine guns.

The "female" had five machine guns.

It was 130 degrees inside, the engine exhausted INTO the tank, it was so loud the crew communication in sign language, and the suspension was unsprung.
Top speed: four miles per hour.

The Germans had special antitank artillery, flat-trajectory antitank mortars, .50-caliber antitank rifles, antitank bullets for infantry rifle and machine guns, and antitank grenades and explosives.

In one of our attacks, we lost 24 of 34 tanks.
The other tank was the French two-man Renault FT.

It attacked in squadrons of four.

Three were armed with machine guns, and one with a 37mm cannon.

Top speed 5 miles per hour.

All the same German antitank weapons apply.
The Germans came close to winning World War One.

They lost for two reasons:


On March 21, 1918, they launched the America Battle, a MASSIVE high-speed assault on the western front intended to knock the allies out of the war before we entered in earnest.
They cut through the French and British like butter, using massed firepower, air power, and speed.

And that was their undoing.

They outran their supply lines, so the French and British rallied, cut the supply lines, and pushed the Germans back.
The second reason the Germans lost was that the morale of soldiers and civilians had hit rock bottom.

The Germans had created an absolute military dictatorship at home. They forced the people to eat sawdust and drink "coffee" made of acorns.

Revolution broke out.
The German navy mutinied, and German soldiers began deserting.

Only teenagers with no families were willing to fight.

It was the revolution and the lack of morale that forced the Germans to sue for peace.

EVEN THEN the insanity didn't stop.
The Treaty of Versailles was seen AT THE TIME as a guarantee of another war in 20 years.

Will Dyson published this cartoon the day the treaty was signed.

"1940 Class" are all the unborn children who fill fight and die in the next war.

"The Tiger" is Georges Clemenceau.
AND THEN we chopped up the Ottoman Empire without regard to the people of the Middle East, ensuring that THEY would take up arms at a future date.
Hollywood wants you to think that the Vietnam War was the height of insanity, but THAT'S ALL DUE TO LEFTISM.

World War One made the British, French, and Americans refuse to defend ourselves, so when the inevitable SECOND World War started, we had our asses kicked for two years.

This is a new one.

Twitter broke my thread after the first tweet!

Here's the first tweet:

Someday I'll tell you about the unending harassment from the federal government and the state of California.

They make Twitter look like nursery schoolers.


Right, @realDonaldTrump?

I've got your back. Always.
Back to World War One.

The German painter Otto Dix was a machine gunner in World War One.

You tell me if you've ever seen anything like THIS coming out of the Vietnam War.
From the Baby Boomers on, all these leftist pansies think they've had it worse than anybody else.

The reasons men died so horribly in World War One is that they were INNOCENT.

They had no idea what was waiting for them.

The British DID in fact tunnel under the Germans and blow them up.

Here's actual footage one such operation.

The craters still exist.

You can visit them, if you like.


Yes, Vietnam tunnel rats did a very tough job.

But in World War One, miners had to worry about COUNTER-miners exploding out of the floor, ceiling, or walls with axes, daggers, pistols, and GRENADES.

So both sides listened with stethoscopes.
If you detected a mine or counter-mine, you used a camouflet.

You drilled down to the enemy mine, dropped in dynamite, and detonated it, causing the mine to collapse.
So tell me AGAIN how the Vietnam War was the height of insanity.


That would encourage them to abandon the valuable aircraft.

So pilots JUMPED TO THEIR DEATHS or tried to ride the burning bastard down on the WING or TAIL.
Zeppelins had no parachutes.

Too heavy.


Here's where Heinrich Mathy landed in a British field after he jumped from his burning Zeppelin.

Honor the fallen by acknowledging their suffering.

Treat it with the utmost solemnity.

You didn't know that the Sentinels have live rounds, did you?

Now you do.

I'll end with Drill Instructor Theresa King.

She's been doing this for about a decade.

You're in for a treat.

Leftists, SHUT UP.

Insanity isn't romantic. It's a disability.
Nobody is required to accommodate your acting out.

Control yourselves or get controlled.

@WallaceR83 is a typical leftist.

He says @realDonaldTrump has done nothing for veterans.

As opposed to Biden and his waiting-list deaths, I guess.

I've issued a challenge to Wallace.

First, his tweet. Image
I'm not going to bother with the rest of his raving, but let's look at Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Image
Now, Wallace has achieved peak veteran-ness.

Ain't nobody more veteran-y than Wallace!



His personal contribution made the country great.

What about Mark Esper? Image

@richardmarx95 is a perfect example of the worst that Twitter has to offer.

This claim about @realDonaldTrump is either a lie or the result of a nonfunctional brain.

The snark (with the little wink) indicate a bad-faith commenter.

But also stupidity. Image
A certain type of conservative is obsessed with orange jumpsuits.

They themselves say that unless they see orange jumpsuits, Trump is not doing his job.

And then on the other side are those who think they're winning.

Both positions are ridiculous.
The reason they're ridiculous is that they show how superficial the person is.

I've never had any patience for people who claim that Soros or the Clintons or the Rothschilds are an existential threat.

Soros himself admitted that he's failed.

Okay. Let's talk about the elephant in the room.

@realDonaldTrump is well on his way to a landslide victory, so I'll address the following issue, since people are asking.…
I'm going to avoid the usual claptrap you get from all side and talk about FACTS.

We can all agree on the following:
1. Evil people commit murder.

2. Morally flawed people support it.

@DrKarlynB says that people compare her to Tim Pool!


I guess it's because they both decided to support @realDonaldTrump.

But come on, man!

Dr. B said exactly what I thought when she said that people compare her to Tim Pool.


Like Ulysses S. Grant.

"I can't spare this man. He fights."

--Abraham Lincoln
Tim still thinks Trump has "bad character" because he "doesn't act presidential."

Dr. B laughs at Trump's trolling.

Tim has a great sense of humor--but only about certain subjects.

On other subjects, he becomes grim and heavy.

Dr. B is consistent, regardless of the subject.

Never heard of Josh Kraushaar @HotlineJosh.

Probably because he's such a shitty reporter.

Here's his breathless news on @realDonaldTrump. Image

Fake news.…
Hey Josh!

"We caught them all."

Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

In his rabid hatred of @realDonaldTrump, young fanatic @MilesTaylorUSA sabotages the Democrats' chances TWICE.

Boy oh boy, I'd sure hate to be in HIS shoes after Trump's landslide victory.

His name will be mud.…
His first act of sabotage was writing the demented op-ed, and his second was admitting to it.

Americans don't respond well to enemy agents working in the government to try and destroy the president.

Especially when they call themselves the "resistance."
Trump won fair and square.

Do you know why so many Democrats accuse Trump of being a Russian asset?


The Chinese buy politicians and other government officials all over the world.
