The wisdom of country music: Trace Adkins on FnF Aug 20
The Boot ^ | August 20, 2010 | The Boot, Pat Gallagher

Posted on 08/21/2010 6:34:27 AM PDT by SERKIT

"Look, they've already won because this is a no-win position that we've been put in," said Trace. "I don't know who their PR person is, but they're better than ours because it doesn't matter how we react now, we already lose. If they get to build the mosque, they can run around the rest of the Islamic world and proclaim victory that they tore down an iconic structure and rebuilt a mosque in its place. And if we don't let them do it, then they'll go preach to the Islamic world that we're intolerant. So it's a no-win for us."

Nice summary of the issue. As they say about Country Music: "Three Chords and the Truth"

The way that I see it, the Islamist fascists have nothing but contempt for appeasement. Those that would subject themselve to these barbarians will be killed.

Slapping down their effort to erect a Victory Monument to the 9-11 hijackers might piss them off, but do we really care about that?

I don’t.

"Three Chords and the Truth"

I forget who said this but it fits:

"Take me not to the makers of laws for they will lie. Take me instead to the makers of music for they tell the truth"

BTW, how tall is Trace Adkins? Steve Doocy is over 6’ and he looks like a midget sitting next to Adkins. That dude is huge!

Trace Adkins is an idiot. The muzzies are like liberals. They don’t need an excuse to lie about us. If they don’t have an excuse, they’ll make one up. Then we spend time & energy trying to disprove it.

I disagree. Making a loud and firm statement to, not just the islamic world, but the entire world, that We The People will not tolerant those that seek to take away our Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness is a win situation.

Yeah, and then they might get mad and fly aircraft into our buildings or something. Oh, wait...

I know what you mean, country music is somewhat better, but it’s certainly not true on the whole. Music is one of the bastions of the left. 90% of what they produce is liberal myth making drivel, brought to us by bitter moral relativists with political agendas.

If this nation doesn’t become really intolerant really soon, we are all dead.

Trace Adkins is not an idiot and I applaud him for going to Afganistan every year around the holidays. He’s one of the good guys....

Lost in whose eyes? Conservatives need to stop judging whether they win or lose by the reactions of liberals and the political class. We have already won America doesn’t want this mosque by a super majority that sounds like we the people have won the arguement.

I rather have them bitching that we’re intolerant than being able to crow about their monument.

“”I don’t know who their PR person is, but they’re better than ours because it doesn’t matter how we react now, we already lose. “

If he believes that, he is. Sorry. He may be a great singer & he may do a lot for the troops, but that does not make him politically astute. America was the greatest when it followed this line of thinking:

“You will either like me, or stand in line to piss on my grave, but you will always know where you stand.”

IOW, those that were our allies, KNEW it. Those that were our enemies, KNEW it. Our enemies may have hated us, but they respected us. We took a stand and didn’t waver.Now? No one knows where we stand. Because we change with the polls.

Hearing islamics complain about "intolerance" is a hoot.

One should avoid ascribing western values to conservative Islamic minds where tolerance is weakness and intolerance strength. They will only preach our intolerance to the WESTERN world where that message will make many question our societal values and fragment our collective resolve. Think Vietnam after Tet or Korea after UN weakness at the Yalu. MacArthur was right, Truman wrong. Unconditional and speedy victory is the only way our democracy can win any war. Negotiated and protracted war fought to appease the sensibilities of Americans will lead to, if not out right failure, abandonment of the effort. The observations of Sun Tzu in action.

To paraphrase Sgt. Muldoon-

Arab Islamist, African Islamist, South Asian Islamist, South East Asian Islamist, South Pacific Islamist...

No sir Mr. Beckworth…

It doesn't take a crystal ball or a hit by one of their weapons to know that what's involved here is,

Islamist domination of the WORLD!!!

Credit where due: Prolific, legendary and no-longer-with-us songwriter, Harlan Howard, described country music as three chords and the truth.

Another thing they say out in the country: “There’s nothin’ ‘Muslim’ that can’t be fixed with a few dozen well placed dump truck-loads of pig guts.”
