The Original, Right-Wing Extremist

One can reasonably presume how today’s Left would characterize and attack the person I am about to describe to you. Without a doubt, he would be characterized as some sort of dangerous, right-wing, tea-bagging, homophobic, Christian Neanderthal who should be maligned, attacked, marginalized, silenced, and driven from power.

Character assassination has become the weapon of choice for those who so forcefully peddle the liberal/progressive ideology. It is relentlessly used to silence all those who stand in opposition to the myriad of ‘isms’ they champion as they seek to “fundamentally transform” the country and society. I sincerely doubt they would spare him.

He was the commanding General of the Army and later a two-term president. Unwavering and dedicated, he had a deep-set of personal beliefs and never faltered from his chosen path.

He called morality “a necessary spring of popular government” and while in command of the army he ordered “vice and immorality of every kind discouraged.” Accustomed to undertaking daily devotions, he ordered worship for the army every Sunday and had twenty thousand Bibles imported for the troops. He even had the audacity to state “to the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.” Can you imagine how those who worship at the altar of the ‘separation of church and state’ would react to such actions and utterances?

He was devoted and married to the same woman his entire life and appears to have never fallen for the temptation of affairs or mistresses during his marriage. His army was probably the first in history to not have a large corp of camp followers filled with harlots and trollops following in its wake. He firmly forbade looting of any kind and quickly drummed out of the army those caught engaging in sodomy.

He was a staunch defender of the right individual to keep and bear arms. He declared that “a free people ought to be armed” and never challenged or questioned the right of individuals to privately own the most advanced firearms of the day.

So who was this man who championed such principles that stand in such stark contrast to modern-day liberals and Progressives?

His name was George Washington.

Discipline, honor, principle, self-reliance, and personal responsibility were all epitomized by George Washington and are deeply valued by the conservative movement. Sobriety and modesty, as well as interest in character and morals were championed by him in both public and private. Such values are timeless and are just as important today as they were then.

He encouraged prayer and got rid of sodomites.

Yeah, THAT would definitely put him on a hit list.

He also understood that obedience to God results in national blessings. That’s why our criminal laws were indistinguishable from God’s Word. And blessed we were, for the first couple hundred years. That was no accident.

Disobedience to God, of course, results in wrath. Over the past few decades we’ve collectively begun calling God a liar, embracing behaviors He detests. And our formerly rich and prosperous nation is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, over $17 trillion in debt. That also is no accident.

He and the other Founders were soooo much smarter than the morons that infest our government nowadays. He understood that obedience to God = national security.

“The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained” - George Washington
