I hope the sentiment in this poem still hold true today for those with Anglo Saxon in their Blood.

Norman and Saxon. Rudyard Kipling 1865 (Mumbai) – 1936 (London)

My son," said the Norman Baron, "I am dying, and you will be heir

To all the broad acres in England that William gave me for my share

When we conquered the Saxon at Hastings, and a nice little handful it is.

But before you go over to rule it I want you to understand this:—

"The Saxon is not like us Normans, His manners are not so polite.

But he never means anything serious till he talks about justice and right.

When he stands like an ox in the furrow with his sullen set eyes on your own,

And grumbles, "This isn't fair dealings," my son, leave the Saxon alone.

"You can horsewhip your Gascony archers, or torture your Picardy spears,

But don't try that game on the Saxon; you'll have the whole brood round your ears.

From the richest old Thane in the county to the poorest chained serf in the field,

They'll be at you and on you like hornets, and, if you are wise, you will yield.

"But first you must master their language, their dialect, proverbs and songs.

Don't trust any clerk to interpret when they come with the tale of their wrongs.

Let them know that you know what they're saying; let them feel that you know what to say.

Yes, even when you want to go hunting, hear 'em out if it takes you all day.

"They'll drink every hour of the daylight and poach every hour of the dark,

It's the sport not the rabbits they 're after (we 've plenty of game in the park).

Don't hang them or cut off their fingers. That's wasteful as well as unkind,

For a hard-bitten, South-country poacher makes the best man-at-arms you can find.

"Appear with your wife and the children at their weddings and funerals and feasts.

Be polite but not friendly to Bishops; be good to all poor parish priests.

Say 'we,' 'us' and 'ours' when you're talking instead of 'you fellows' and 'I.'

Don't ride over seeds; keep your temper; and never you tell 'em a lie!"

More quickly than one might have imagined, the culture war is revealing itself to be what it has always been -- a spiritual war.

I think you give too much charity to the government agencies. The officials don't believe the ideologies they promote, they are merely psychopaths who wield power because its all they understand. They are true Nietzcheans, whether they've read Nietzche or not. The moral code they enforce is merely a tool, to be adhered to by those they percieve as lesser beings (i.e. people with consciences, empathy, and healthy communal instincts). To the extent they do believe their own hype, its only by way of equivocation and double-speak, as we see clearly when they say "our democracy."

I thank the Lord that I am an enemy to them and their sickness. What took them so long? I guess the Catholic hatred could only "mature" to this extent once they'd managed to put a heretical Catholic in the WH.

I say to them all, go on give it your damnest. Remember, though, one important fact: once we're persecuted, we're winning; kill us and we've won.

Sarah, I always marvel as to how you can zero in on the issues we face every day. You can always refute them with uncanny wisdom as to the error of their ways. I can't give them credit for their "thinking" because they obviously have not done so as you so well describe and define. It just becomes more obvious as to see how we are being attacked today on all fronts. We just have to make our voices heard!!

“The document defined “radical-traditionalist Catholics” as those who attend a Latin Mass, and said that they may adhere to “anti-semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ, and white supremacist ideology”.

Antisemitic accusations come from the Jews, maybe people should find out who their real enemy is…
