Bill Whittle speaks at the first post-election meeting of the Hancock Park Patriots, November 12, 2012. Bill discusses the election, the culture and the post-political world of the Information Age.

About half an hour in, when he starts talking about what a real president would have done about Benghazi, I couldn’t help leaking a few tears.
Bill Whittle is a national treasure. I just watched the whole video, and all I can say is........hoo boy!!!
“No civilization has ever survived its own culture. Not one. They’ve all collapsed.
Of course, no other civilization has left its foot prints on the frikken moon.” - Bill Whittle
Watch the video. It’s the best thing you’ll do this week. Maybe this whole month.
I hear you. I love his idea of producing a television series where he poses as the president and takes the exact same questions that Jay Carney takes from the press, but answers them in the way a real president would (and should).
My heart nearly stopped when he lit into the kinds of responses he would have given to the press if he were Mitt Romney. I could only think, if Mitt had actually said those very things, he would have won the election with ease. He didn't, because he's afraid to show his real self, and afraid to articulate conservatism's real message.
Brilliant talk. I can't recommend it enough. I hope this video goes viral.
Without a doubt, the most uplifting and thought provoking video you will see this month. Maybe even this year.
Conservative icon Bill Whittle shares his ideas about where we're headed (it's good), how we'll get there (it's good), and why this is going to happen no matter what the left does (it's mind blowing).
Culture wars... we lose against pop culture. It is founded on ignorance and devoid of principles now. This is an MTV world... vacant of principles.
Is this country worth saving? With these citizens? All of them? Honestly? I don’t think so and it pains me terribly to say that. Conservative ideals are incompatible with liberals.
Saving the country for the past may be noble and respectful but you’ll get few allies in that. Does Bill actually think that an appeal to this proletariat in memory of those who gave so much for all we have had will enroll them? No way in hell do they give a damn for that. Kids who will vote in the next election have no personal memories of 9/11 let alone have any affinity for WWII or any other ancient history they have not been taught.
This all sounds nice but this country can’t be saved as it was. It must be destroyed to have what we have had. It is too far gone. Yes, it is balanced 50/50 but the ones replacing most of the 50% we can work with can’t be worked with.
Without destruction Bill is right. We become Sweden or the UK or some other nation. We do not continue as the United States or the principles that most of us hold. Surrender is giving in to the devil and probably the equivalent of taking the mark for many of us.
The frontier spirit is not for the takers. The takers are the people who stayed behind in the East. No adventure. No vision. Just the same view all the time.
He is so right, VIRTUOUS PEOPLE DON’T STEAL FROM THE TREASURY AND OTHER PEOPLE. We do have a crisis of virtue and it will not be recovered before the nation dies. There just isn’t enough time to educate the last two generations. We are like a twin engine airplane on takeoff with one engine losing power. The crash is inevitable. The good engine just propels the airplane to a more distant crash site.
“If we don’t change this head wind we will never win another election again” How will we ever be able to change the head wind in time. Bill is just a single spark trying to light a huge pile of very wet timber.
Bill is an inspiration but I just feel like he is a single beam of light in an otherwise very dark night.
I gotta go to bed and try to listen to the rest of Bill later.
Christians are going to go to heaven.
We really can’t presume on any particular earthly promise in America. It really could go all to hell in a handcart. Or there could be a divine reprieve. We ought to strive for the latter inasmuch as the good Lord gives us an influence to do so.
The astonishing truth is that a land full of sinners never WAS “worth saving.”
That’s something that God did, as an unearned favor — just because he jolly well wanted to. God wanted to show his love even to the hateful.
But God is not going to let a lovefest to the hateful go on forever and ever on the earth. Sooner or later things will come to an ugly head.
Do watch the video. It’s one of the most inspirational talks I’ve seen in ages.
I guess I can, while praying that dear God, may it actually happen. God gets no joy from the death of the wicked.
But only God knows where hearts are and if it’s even possible.
I stayed for the Benghazi note and wished I could vote for Bill for President. We can live with defeat when we try but not when we whimper.
I wonder if kids understand that at all? I know the takers don’t.
The Electoral College? Presidents are elected by the states? Only when each STATE is represented equally... just like the Spinate. The most populous states got their wish... control over all the rest. Nothing like we agreed to.
We cant’ be Sweden, Norway or Denmark because:
1. Our society is not homogenous theirs is almost pure and of a common understanding and heritage
2. Most of the people there work. Industry is part of their heritage
3. They have only a fraction of the numbers of takers we have.
4. They have control of their borders
We can’t be the UK because of our form of government.
We can’t even be Mexico... we are too diverse and that diversity has caused us to lose our identity.
Were I a secular bettin’ man, I’d bet on a slowly deteriorating muddle, with occasional excursions to the right as it slouches left and down.
Of course if there is a real live God, and I most emphatically aver there is, that is a total wild card.
Anybody got the Cliff’s Notes? Or a transcript??
Amen, Bravo, Hallelujah and Yahoo to his statements about there having to be consequences to having voted for this mess. The people who vote for socialism have to pay a price for socialism. They made a choice.
We must protect our own people.... RIGHT! Remember this. We have to figure out a way to identify the true conservatives.
Out of curiosity I looked for a bio or something about Bill Whittle. I didn’t find much in the first 8 pages of at least three search combinations.
He is a self-described Writer, Director and Pilot
He seems to have been born in 1941? I find that doubtful to think the man is 71?
Something claims he is born in Kalifornia?
That is about all though he professes a great line of love for the country and does a great job of speaking.
Can anyone point to anything more detailed? I’m a little leery of following people with murky resumes for what should be obvious reasons.
And only one of many highly inspiring (though usually much shorter) videos that can be seen on his YouTube channel, or on the PJTV.com website.
Here is one he put together in the first crazed hours after he realized that the election was lost. His usually calm, relaxed, logical demeanor has given way to the exhaustion and desperate determination of surrounded patriots. It's long, but at 1:27 I treasured every moment as he thought out loud and developed his premise. A New Beginning Quite a fascinating idea--going Galt independently and legally, without moving to Galt's Gulch.
An angel freeper passed along this piece of Bill Whittle brilliance from the day after the election -
Easy listening and so uplifting.
Many of the same ideas - both are terrific.
:) Haven’t been called an angel in a long time. When I get really depressed about the situation, I think, “Ignore them!” Also, “I’m not leaving the country; they are!”
Kolath: Thank you for the post. That was cheering and a very positive picture of our future.
Windflier: Thanks for the ping, my friend.
Will we be the ones who prevent the collapse of the best culture on Earth? Can we “overcome ourselves” to the point of returning to the Shining City on the Hill?
Crashing through the 200-Year Wall and being successful on the other side is not going to be quick or easy, but I’m game with the time I have left.
The best point? Make the leftists pay when they vote goodies for themselves. “Fire the Obama bumper-sticker crowd.” Yeah.

Funny how this gentlemen uses Robt. E. Lee freely in his speech but never mentions secession as a viable possiblity.
"Heres another version which, in some ways is bolder, a little more raw. This is Whittles talk to the camera, alone, the night of the election right after the results were known.
Hes making the same point but in a more straightforward manner. What I did was watch about 10 minutes of it, and then skipped to around minute 50. After that, I couldnt turn it off! I believe the man is on to something inspiring, practical, moral."
An email response I got from another friend. It’s her response to Bill Whittle:
“Hello Mr. Whittle,
I just watched several of your recent videos.
I could not agree with you more.
What you are proposing to some degree has already taken root in the programming community with open source programs and licensing (Linux, Star Office, Source Forge, etc.) in an effort to resist the Microsoft monopoly.
Volunteers in droves created an alternate programming and software universe.
What you said about taking care of ourselves (as in like-minded individuals) were words right out of my mouth and many of my friends. You have definitely articulated the thoughts of many.
I plan to boycott all restaurants, stores, services that are owned by Democrats. I will not knowingly use the services of a Democrat if a Republican is available.
In order to do this I have to know who they are.
Once our local county election office gets all the data, I plan to get the voter database and extract the names of all those who voted in the Republican primary and give my business to these folks for everything I possibly can.
A Patriot database could be set up from each county for national access.
Just a thought. I am sure you have many more.
God bless and keep up the good work!”
You might want to check his weekly YouTube commentaries called “The Stratosphere Lounge” (up to 18 episodes). Very insightful and in some, he goes into his past.
Bill Whittle: “The Stratosphere Lounge”
thanks i will
“He seems to have been born in 1941?”
He said he was 10 years old for the moon landing.
He’s 53. He used to work as a screenwriter and has several TV or movie credits—nothing huge and famous. He says he did freelancing for many years and made very little money. Why don’t you ask him for the details? He’s available.
I figured he had to be a freeper. ‘;^)
