Up Against Honorable Wall
Commentary by: Bill the Butcher
The best way to win an argument or debate is to organize the rules of engagement in such a way that your opponent cannot offer any counterpoints expounding their view without said opponent pulling a Whoopi Goldberg ie stomping off the stage because someone said the word, “Black!” Welcome to the Democrat Party. If you will note I did not say Democratic because the party that fought for slavery and gave us Jim Crow is anything but Democratic!
In order to have a fruitful exchange of ideas you simply must have at least two opposing ideas. Anything less is preaching to the choir. In an honest debate no one ever wins. You will never see Christopher Hitches say that Jerry Falwell is completely right and that he is joining the Southern Baptist Convention.
So why discuss at all? If you discuss honesty you must listen to the opposing view if you are to have a retort at all. Facts should be adhered to. This is why the Hitchens/Falwell debate is an oxymoron. Two contestants arguing about something they have absolutely no hope of proving. All you’re going to get are clever sound bites as the two try to prove that their invisible guy in the sky can whip the other guy’s invisible guy in the sky. Or rather Hitchens has no invisible guy in the sky. He’s just trying to prove a negative. (Sorry Chris.)
In such an argument the rules supersede the facts. Just like a court of law. God Bless ‘Murica! The rules of submission of evidence take precedence over any pertinent facts, and those rules will put you in jail . . . or worse! How many times have you seen a case where some poor chap has been on death row for twenty sum-odd years and just like that DNA proved he could not have committed the crime. And they still take forever and a day to let him go. And why? The rules!
The rules as to what is offensive are being imposed by law now. Consider the case if the middle school kid who called some boy a boy while the offended kid saw himself as a girl. Now this presupposes my assumption that the little boy/girl was incapable of looking in his pants. Someone hurt his widdle fewings! And now the offending boy’s scholastic record is blotched for the rest of his life.
You have the freedom to see reality any way you want. Kiler Davenport thinks reality is no reality. But, as surely as you can see you’re personal reality someone else can perceive their reality any way they wish. The image of that reality is impressed on your brain and no detergent gets it out. (Sorry about that Meat Loaf.)
Reality is reality but words are words. Watch this. I grew up in Killeen, Texas. More black than Harlem. I’ve been around Eubonics since grade school. There is a vast difference between “YO MaMa” and “Yo MAMA!” One gets you a date and the other gets you a fight. Also the twisting of words and descriptions can vary immensely. Telling a woman her face is timeless is different that letting her know her face could stop a clock. Same idea, different results. Better to just shut up after, “YO MaMa!”
So to offend is quite easy. When you have a contingency of people, the Z Generation, who learned English from three letter acronyms they picked up on Facebook and they are making the rules of politically correct communication for the rest of us. lol! You will quickly find yourself tip toeing through the politically correct mine field. Think I’m kidding? Ask that middle school kid!
Y’all are waiting for me to give you some solution for this. I can’t. These Jack-a-Lopes didn’t just pop out of the ground. Au Contrairé. We Baby Boomers birthed their grandparents who birthed their parents who birthed them. Bloody hell! I suddenly believe in abortion. But, this much stupid can’t come from just one generation. They’re like the Aztecs. They’ve been cutting hearts out for years. Now watch some Facebook Fact Checker zap me on that. OK, OK, it might have been the Incas. Could have even been the Mormons. Anyway they rule, and we drool. And it’s everywhere.
When those of my generation die off, those left will struggle hard after the Chinese arrive with the phrase,
“Up Against Honorable Wall!”

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
