From The Time I Can Remember . . . I’ve Lived My Entire Life Guided By As Moral A Compass As I Could.
I’ve Done & Said Things in my Life that I am Not Proud of . . . But Neither am I Ashamed of what I’ve Said & Done . . . Knowing What I Know Today, I would Have Done & Said Some Things Differently – It’s just the Way it is for all of us, Doing our Best Trying to Figure Things Out as we Mature & Learn.
As I’ve Grown Older, Matured & Personally Invested Far More Deeply in the Concepts of Values, I’ve Learned Much About What is Right & What is Wrong & What we Should be Proud of & What we Should be Ashamed of.
And I’ve Learned A Great Deal About Human Nature . . . Much Of Which Is Sad.
I’ve Created Protest Groups & Rallied Tens of Thousands of People . . . To Stand Their Ground For Their Rights & For What They Believed. I’ve Even Countenanced People to Practice Peaceful Civil Disobedience . . .
I’ve Never Encouraged Anyone to Take to the Streets & Fight – But Back In 1968, I Joined-Up with the Montreal Jewish Defense League to Do Just That, as Jewish Children were Being Beaten & Terrified by Roaming Anti-Semitic French Quebec Gangs, To Fight Anyone & Everyone – who Would Take Away my Rights and the Rights of Fellow-Jews to Live in Safety & Peace . . . Denied To Us Only Because We Were Jews.
At First We Didn’t Fight . . . At First we Begged the Judiciary & Police to Stop the Violence Against Montreal Jews. Then we Organized Escorts to Keep Jewish Kids Safe, while they were Going & Coming to and from School . . . and When None of that Stopped the Assaults, We Went Looking For The Fights That Were Long Overdue.
And When Several Of Our Groups Found The Thugs – “Serious” Lessons Were Made & The Assaults Never Happened Again.
The Mainstream Montreal Jewish Community . . . Condemned us Because we Were Fighters . . . And in their Minds, we were an Embarrassment to the Jewish Community. The Police Thought we were Criminals. The Media, French & English Portrayed Us as Thugs – But When No One Is Going To Fight For You . . . You Better Be Prepared To Fight For Yourself.
Hitler Talked About The Final Solution For Jews . . . Hitler even Wrote About it in his Book Mein Kampf – The Jews Should Have Believed Him. Stalin Said he was Going to Take Away Basic Human Rights. The People Didn’t Believe that Either. The Chinese Didn’t Believe Mao Tse-Tung & Mao Murdered Tens of Millions of his Own People.
Believe The Neo-Communists When they Say They’re Going To Fundamentally Change America. The Question Is To What?
Surrendering Our Freedoms Is Not Who Or What We Are. It is a Slap in the Face to the Millions of Men & Women who Sacrificed Everything from their Creature-Comforts, Education, Job Opportunities, Body Parts and their Very Lives in War, So We Can Be Free.
Power Corrupts & Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely. But It’s More Than That. Any Power Inevitably Corrupts.
Once You’ve Experienced The Nectar Of Political Office, where you Drink-In the Libations of Personal Prestige, even on a Lower Scale . . . the Entitlement Becomes Addictive.
I’ve Known Plenty Of Dummies Who’ve Been Elected To Office . . . And Once In Office Have Become Geniuses In Their Own Minds.
Can Anyone Be So Stupid As To Interpret “Amen” In Prayer . . . The Meaning Being Derived from Ancient Hebrew, to Greek to Latin to English – Effectively Translating To – “Make-It So”. With No Reference Whatsoever to Gender; How Can they Possibly be Dumb Enough to Conjure Amen as a Gender Advantage for Men . . . To Promote “A Woman” – Towards Gender-Balance while Ending a Prayer . . . Be Smart Enough To Sit In Governance Of Anyone?
Like It Or Not . . . Those Are The Elected Idiots Making The Rules By Which We Must Live.
The Swamp Is As Wide As It Is Deep – As It Is Eternal . . . And Make No Mistake About-It, Men & Women who we Think are on our Side, are Far More Likely on their Own Side, which is the Swamp Side – Intoxicated By The Libations Of Even The Puniest Drops Of Power.
And Anyone who is Too Stupid to Understand the Difference Between the Gender of a Man and a Woman is Too Stupid to Decide the Future of our Existence and the Freedoms Within our Societies . . .
And Like It Was For Me In 1968, When No One Was Listening, The Time Is Now To Do What Has To Be Done – One Way Or Another.
