THE ANGRY MAN

Via John "After reading this description (author unknown, but revered) I've concluded: I am an angry man."

    For all the interest group pandering that shapes modern American politics, the group that may well have decided the election has come down to the demographic of “The Angry Man.”

    The Angry Man is difficult to stereotype. He comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from sophisticated urbanite to rural redneck, Deep South to Yankee North, Left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

    No matter where he’s from, Angry Men share many common traits; they aren’t asking for anything from anyone other than the promise to be able to make their own way on a level playing field. In many cases, they are independent businessmen and employ several people. They pay more than their share of taxes and they work hard. Damn hard, for what they have and intend to keep.

    He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the Christmas party for the employees at his company, three sets of braces, college educations or a beautiful wedding or two. Not because he was forced to, but because it’s the right thing to do.

    The Angry Man believes the Constitution should be interpreted as it was written. It is not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of appointed judges and political winds.

    The Angry Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun and use it in defense of his home, his country and his family. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone if necessary to achieve those goals gives him only momentary pause.

    The Angry Man is not, and never will be, a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina. He got his people together and got the hell out. Then, he went back in to rescue those who needed help or were too stupid to help themselves in the first place. He was selfless in this, just as often a civilian as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter. Victimhood syndrome buzzwords; “disenfranchised,” “marginalized” "safe spaces" and “voiceless” don’t resonate with The Angry Man. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him.

    His last name, his race and his religion don’t matter. His ancestry might be Italian, English, African, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, Russian, Hispanic or any of a hundred others. What does matter, is that he considers himself in every way to be an American. He is proud of this country and thinks that if you aren’t, you are whole-heartedly encouraged to find one that suits you and move there.

    The Angry Man is usually a man’s man. The kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, go hunting, play golf, maintain his own vehicles and build things. He coaches kid’s baseball, soccer and football and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, design a factory or work the land. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant, so that you can keep the lights on while never knowing everything it took to do that. The Angry Man is the backbone of this country.

    He’s not racist, but is truly disappointed and annoyed when people exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their ethnicity. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they’re willing to work hard and play by the rules. He expects other people to do the same. Above all, he has integrity in everything he does.

    The Angry Man votes, and he loathes the dysfunction now rampant in government. It’s the victim groups being pandered to and the “poor me” attitude that they represent. The inability of politicians to give a straight answer to an honest question. The tax dollars that are given to people who simply don’t want to do anything for themselves. The fact that, because of very real consequences, he must stay within a budget but for some obscure reason the government he finances doesn’t. Mostly, it’s the blatantly arrogant attitude displayed implying that we are too stupid to run our own lives and only people in government are smart enough to do that.

    The Angry Man has now reached his limit.  The "Game of Liberals" is over. When a social justice agitator goes on TV, leading some rally for Black Lives Matter, safe spaces or any other such nonsense, he may bite his tongue but, he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement. The day is coming.

    But when government officials are repeatedly caught red-handed breaking the law and getting off scot-free, The Angry Man balls-up his fists and readies himself for the inevitable coming fight. He knows that this fight will be a live or die situation, so he prepares fully. Make no mistake, this is a fight in which he is not going to lose because he is unwilling to lose and he will never give up until he has achieved total victory.

    Obama calls him a Clinger
    Hillary calls him Deplorable
    Bill calls him Redneck                                          
    BLM calls him a Racist
    Feminists call him Sexist
    ISIS calls him an Infidel
    Donald Trump calls him an American

  2. I take the names they call me as a badge of honor. It means I am on the right path. To do "the right thing" is a concept that if I have to explain it, you are not going to understand. If you do understand then a nod of the head is all that is needed. I do weep for what I see is coming. When these wannabes and special snowflakes finally get "the revolution" they have been having their wet dreams over, they are going to find a whole lot of us, redneck, racist, sexist, infidel Deplorables will not be in a forgiving mood.

  5. I'd say you do have legitimate victims at times though.

    A problem with modern society is the weak can fall through the cracks. I don't mean blacks or Muslims fall through the cracks but the legitimately weak.

    In a small community, you can get to know the people, so you might learn how to help others after learning about them. In a large society, you just have too many people to know what to do with them all.

  6. Also, it's my belief that politics requires a man to lie, and pursuit of power often requires one to sell a bit of his soul to the Devil. The game then is to be sure you don't sell/corrupt too much of your soul.

    The belief that honesty and good deeds are all that are needed could be dangerous and create harm.

    2. Well, I like Machiavelli, James Burnham, and Sam Francis somewhat.

      I don't like lying, sinning, so forth. I just think reality isn't so rosy.

      There's a quote I liked recommending Christians to avoid politics, to protect their souls. And I like the warning that power tends to corrupt.

      Anyway, if I had the time I'd develop that further. There is something to what I say though.

      Machiavelli, btw, would recommend that a balance of power can be excellent at preserving freedom, since fallen man would otherwise be tempted to abuse his power. So, he's not entirely as evil as people think him. I could be citing Burnham instead of Machiavelli there btw.

  7. skybill has left a new comment on your post "THE ANGRY MAN":

    Hi Brock,
    10-4...."I resemble that remark!!!!"

  8. Brock, two things, and you're going to like this:

    One, the author above might like the ideal of the peasant. I know I do. The peasant is largely self-reliant, able to do many things, expert at nothing. "The specialist is the enemy of the peasant".

    Anyway, the peasant vs. modern society (where everyone is a specialised interdependent cog) is an extremely interesting concept.

    -

    Number 2, deception is necessary, and here's how I can defend it:

    If you and I are in a fist fight, deception can be key to who wins that fight. You might fake with your left, then hit with your right. Or, if we're using legs also, you might surprise me with a kick. Or otherwise change things up. I'm not really a fighter, but I know deception is said to be key to martial arts anyway.

    But I do value honesty where it's possible. And I think in the right place, honesty is essential to a strong, healthy society.

      Amen, but I think that's long gone unfortunately.

  13. NOW I KNOW... Count me in Americans. But now we have a different angry man... the defeated communists aka Democrats who feel they have gotten the shaft. But unbeknownst to them is that they did it to themselves. They are like scorned women. And we all know what that brings on...

  14. Excellent! I too am an angry man, and have been for a long damn time.

  15. Why do you have to make such a point that racism is bad? Virtually no blacks are "angry men" as defined by you. You are playing into the Left's narrative of victimhood.
