A Freeper Call To Arms! (vanity)

"Blackjack" Pershing "Blood 'n Guts" Patton Lazamataz's Speech to the Free Republic Army - the Unabridged Edition

Somewhere in America, May 16th, 2005

"Be seated."

People, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting liberalism, not wanting to fight socialism, is a crock of b******t. Americans love to be right wing capitalists, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of capitalism and the moral virtues of conservatism.

You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones against the moral predations of liberalism. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real Americans and all real Americans like to fight liberalism. When you, here, every one of you, were kids, you all admired Ronald Reagan, the Uncompassionate Conservatives, the old-school Republicans. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor will ever lose against liberals; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.

You are not all going to die. Only two percent of you right here today would die because of some liberal -- probably by an abortion. Death must not be feared. Death, in time, comes to all people. Yes, everybody is scared when a liberal screeches at them or a newspaper threatens to impugn them. If they say they're not, they're a liar. Some people are cowards but they fight liberals the same as the brave folks or they get the hell slammed out of them watching those fight who are just as scared as they are. The real hero is the person who fights liberals even though he is scared. Some people get over their fright in a minute under fire. For some, it takes an hour. For some, it takes days. But a real human being will never let his fear of death overpower his honor, his sense of duty to his conservative values, and his innate sense of right and wrong.

Battling liberalism is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best and it removes all that is base. Americans pride themselves on being REAL conservatives and they ARE real conservatives. Remember that the liberals are just pantywaist leg-warmer wearing fairies, and are just as frightened as you are, and probably more so. They are not supermen.

All through your Free Republic careers, you folks have bitched about what you call "chicken s**t posting." That, like everything else in Free Republic, has a definite purpose. That purpose is alertness. Alertness must be bred into every Freeper. I don't give a fig for a Freeper who's not always on his toes. You people are conservatives or you wouldn't be here. You are ready for what's to come. A Freeper must be alert at all times if he expects beat the stuffing out of liberals. If you're not alert, sometime, a liberal son-of-an-a**h**e-b***h is going to sneak up behind you and pass another freedom-grabbing, pro-abortion, antigun law! There are four hundred neatly marked new laws in Washington, all because one conservative compromised with a liberal.

Free Republic is a team. It lives, sleeps, eats, and fights as a team. This individual "I can do it all" stuff is pure horse droppings. The bilious b******s who write that kind of stuff for the New York Times don't know any more about real fighting under fire than they know about making love! We have the finest computers, the best internet connections, and the best minds in the world. Why, by God, I actually pity those poor sons-of-b****es we're going up against. By God, I do.

Freepers don't surrender, and I don't want to hear of any Freeper under my command stopping unless he has been knocked unconscious. Even if you are knocked unconscious, when you wake up, you can still fight liberals. That's not just bulls**t either. The kind of man that I want in my command is just like the Freeper in Philidelphia, who, surrounded and beaten by shouting Union thugs, stood his ground and exposed the corruption of the Democrat in office. There was a real Freeper!

Each Freeper must not think only of himself, but also of his country's future. We don't want yellow Freepers in this web site. They should be banned like trolls. If not, they will go home after this fight and breed more trolls. The brave Freepers will breed more brave Freepers. Kill off the Goddamned cowards and we will have a nation of brave Freepers.

Sure, we want to go home. We've got jobs to do and spouses and children to care for. We want liberals to go away. The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the Democrats and RINOS unelected, and get CONSERVATIVE Republicans elected. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we can resume our lives. The shortest way home is straight through liberal's fondest desires. And when we destroy liberalism, I am personally going to shoot the first newspaper that decries our victory. Just like I'd shoot a snake!

When a Freeper is not calling his representatives, if he just stays idle all day, a liberal will get to the representative eventually. The hell with that idea. The hell with taking it. My Freepers don't slow down. I don't want them to. Keep moving. And don't give the enemy time to rally either. We'll win this fight, but we'll win it only by working and by showing the liberals that we've got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We're not going to just defeat the sons-of-b***es, we're going to rip out their living Goddamned guts and use them to grease the axles of our SUV's. We're going to murder those lousy liberal suckers by the bushel-frickin'-basket.

Politics is a bloody, senseless business. You've got to destroy their ideology, or they will destroy yours. Use their tactics. Use emotionalism. Delphi them. When newspapers are criticzing all of you and you open up your paycheck and realize that instead of pay, it's all taxes, you'll know what to do!

From time to time there will be some complaints that we are pushing our Freepers too hard. I don't give a good Goddamn about such complaints. I believe in the old and sound rule that an ounce of sweat will save a ton of legislation. The harder WE push, the more liberals we will defeat. The more liberals we defeat, the more money, rights, and lives we will save. I want you all to remember that.

There is one great thing that you men will all be able to say after this fight is over and you can resume your lives again. You may be thankful that twenty years from now when you are sitting by the fireplace with your grandson on your knee and he asks you what you did in the great political battles of the 2000's, you WON'T have to cough, shift him to the other knee and say, 'Well, your Granddaddy shoveled shit in Louisiana.' No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, 'Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Free Republic and a Son-of-a- Goddamned-B***h named Lazamataz!'

"That is all."

I wrote this originally on another thread, mostly as a joke. However, when I reread it, I actually felt inspired.

I think I will repost this from time to time when morale -- especially mine -- is flagging on Free Republic.

Credit for the original speech goes to the finest fighting man America has ever produced: General George "Blood and Guts" Patton.

And you forgot "WADE into them. Spill THEIR blood. Shoot THEM in the belly." And "We're not interested in holding our ground. We are advancing constantly, and we're going through them like crap through a goose."

But other than that, the parallel is apt. I especially like the part about using their guts to grease our SUVs. Liberals don't have much in the way of guts, so it would take a LOT of them for say an Expedition ...

No guts, sure - but grease? You've got to be kidding. If we could render down Michael Moore, we'd have enough to grease every SUV in the US for the next ten years.

(Johnny Carson voice) I did NOT know that.

And you forgot "WADE into them. Spill THEIR blood. Shoot THEM in the belly." And "We're not interested in holding our ground. We are advancing constantly, and we're going through them like crap through a goose."

I think it's in there but I redacted all violent imagery in place of activism.

But other than that, the parallel is apt.

I think so. It's another demonstration of the inverse of that old truism -- the inverse being "Politics is War by other means".

I especially like the part about using their guts to grease our SUVs. Liberals don't have much in the way of guts, so it would take a LOT of them for say an Expedition ...

LOL! Thanks.

Absolutely. Petty personal differences or minor disagreements in policy pale in comparison to the importance of defeating liberals and their despicable Legacy Media enablers.

Spot on, and I hope all will heed the call!

This week has shown us how evil the media and the democrats really are. We should be shoulder-to-shoulder in our offense upon these creeps! Disagreements about abortion, immigration, taxes, CFR, and other policies should be buried and brought up only after we have defeated the enemy which opposes all that we hold dear.

Onward to victory!

Bluto: the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!
Bluto: What the f**k happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer...
Otter: Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.
Bluto: We're just the guys to do it.
D-Day: Let's do it.
