Patton on Profanity and Prayer (Part One – Profanity)

A Man among Men

Part One is exactly as advertised. If you are going to be offended by Profanity go read something else. There, I’ve done my part.

As I was doing historical research during the Christmas Holiday I ran across some national treasures that reflect the character of this Nation only a couple, or for some of you three generations previous. I could do a whole “then and now” comparison. There’s no point in actually doing that outside of the conversation that may follow this historical find.

One of the greatest Generals in the history of the U.S. Army was General George S. Patton. He was an excellent communicator. The traditional, effective and soldierly methods of communication he personified were still very much in practice when I served. This is why, despite my Christian upbringing I asked my Sister to “pass the fucking salt” over my first Sunday dinner at home since I had left for basic training.

Profanity serves a purpose in the military. General Patton explained; “When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can’t run an Army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An Army without profanity couldn’t fight it’s way out of a piss-soaked paper bag.”

Throughout my numerous attempts to re-enlist since September 11th 2001 it was explained to me over and over again; “Sarge, this ain’t the same Army you knew”. In each case my response was; “Yeah, I know. I’m here to help get it back to where it needs to be”. We didn’t have stress cards, we had stress and lots of it. Typically the stress was inflicted by someone expertly and eloquently expressing himself through Profanity. If the Army was going to be able to effectively take the fight to our enemies each individual Soldier would have to be fortified with the ability to generate unmitigated brutality in an instant, even when sleeping. The only way that can happen is through effective instruction and failing that, experience.

Here we are more than Eight years into this World War and our military prosecutes Special Operators for using excessive force, bloodying the lip of a terrorist on the battlefield. Terrorists responsible for the deaths of thousands of our fellow citizens are now protected by civilian lawyers in civilian courts. We have a President who tells us that Poverty and lack of Civil Rights are to blame as the cause of the new World War. The fact is that our President is more concerned for the well being of our enemies than he is American Citizens. It is clearly evident that he believes that by elevating our enemies and their cause that it makes them less likely to commit violence against us and thusly the protection of Attorneys and the Law is many times more effective at securing this Nation than a Carrier Task Force or Divisions of trained killers who are allowed to do their jobs unmolested by their own.

He clearly demonstrates this every chance he gets and if it isn’t him it’s someone he hired to carry out his orders. Do you think these assholes are really doing the jobs they were hired, are paid and have sworn themselves to faithfully execute? Get real. The current administration along with its unelected apointees and fellow radicals in Congress have worked most tirelessly to actually make themselves into a direct physical threat to the lives of its citizens but have done very little to threaten the lives of our enemies. If anything they work tirelessly to provide physical assistance to them. If you don’t believe that now you will know it soon enough.

As you know, I catch a lot of grief when I express my true feelings on any subject of the day, when events further demonstrate the Truth I expressed in the previous two paragraphs. The fact is that I hate to sound like a broken record. A dog that barks too much is eventually ignored. That’s not how any writer wants to be received and it’s easy for me to paint myself into a corner as a monotone. One of the greatest frustrations in all of this is that no amount of profanity, no matter how eloquent, changes the basic facts that generated the outrage.

With each passing day the government acts to further harm us directly and as of yet not a single representative who was elected to combat this type of destruction has found enough outrage to express themselves with more eloquence than to say; “You Lie”. Remember all the manufactured indignation that followed? I’m outraged that not a single so-called Conservative in Congress has cussed a blue streak while the C-Span cameras were rolling.

Of course there is no better time than the present for engaging the lens of a C-Span camera. They don’t have much going on that they are allowed to cover. Cockroaches fear the light of broadcast television. It would not require much effort to capture the attention of the idle C-Span camera crews right now.

Imagine how effectively a Conservative would be able to communicate if he or she would just go off and say what they are really thinking with some profanity poetically laced into their expression. Those punks in Washington D.C. wouldn’t know what to do with themselves. Those efeminate cowards on Capitol Hill have the audacity to make decisions that will greatly alter your life and life span and they clearly demonstrate their fear of the Truth. Imagine how unconquerable a conservative would be if they simply spoke the Truth but did so with the eloquence of General Patton. THAT would be a sight for sore eyes and welcome sound to numb ears.

Imagine that instead of hearing that girly man Michael Steele speaking his passive, non-aggressive line of shit that couldn’t capture the attention of a Troop of Brownies, we instead heard someone saying…

“Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about America wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bullshit. Americans love to fight, traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. 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 men and all real men like to fight. When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. 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 a war; for the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.”

“Each man must not think only of himself, but also of his buddy fighting beside him. We don’t want yellow cowards in this Army. They should be killed off like rats. If not, they will go home after this war and breed more cowards. The brave men will breed more brave men. Kill off the Goddamned cowards and we will have a nation of brave men. One of the bravest men that I ever saw was a fellow on top of a telegraph pole in the midst of a furious fire fight in Tunisia. I stopped and asked what the hell he was doing up there at a time like that. He answered, “Fixing the wire, Sir”. I asked, “Isn’t that a little unhealthy right about now?” He answered, “Yes Sir, but the Goddamned wire has to be fixed”. I asked, “Don’t those planes strafing the road bother you?” And he answered, “No, Sir, but you sure as hell do!” Now, there was a real man. A real soldier. There was a man who devoted all he had to his duty, no matter how seemingly insignificant his duty might appear at the time, no matter how great the odds”.

Historical Note: I’m sure you don’t remember George C. Scott orating the second paragraph of the “Famous Speech” by General Patton. Do you wonder why that is? Nah, I thought not.

Imagine someone saying that today. You know why it’s hard to do? It’s because part of the culture war has been directed against REAL manhood. The pussification of our culture is pervasive to the extent that I believe it is now a terminal condition. In the last World War we didn’t have legions of attorneys insuring that Pussification became the intent and effect of the Law. In this World War we have Pussies running the show and the biggest Pussy of all is in the Oval Office.

You see, if there’s one thing I’ve figured out about physical cowards, it’s this; they can’t compete, therefore they insure that their betters must contend with them while enduring handicaps. That’s why today you find so many punks who just pop off at the mouth with no concern for consequences. It’s because “The System” insures that whoever beats the shit out of a mouthy punk who deserves it, goes to jail. The punk grows up to be old enough to purchase a firearm one day and a Police Officer will eventually have to put the punk down. Then “The System”, the one that works by the way, will work to put the Police Officer down.

A bigger example of Pussies trying to counter-act that natural progression of human survival on order that Pussies may somehow come out on top is found in the “Legal” assaults against the Second Amendment. Pussies hate violence, so they try to outlaw it, thinking that they actually CAN. Pussies opposed to traditional American Culture are only aware of their competitors within American Culture because those competitors have kept them safe from “Foreign Competition”. The foreign competition knows a Pussy when they see one. Try to imagine what the Chinese were thinking as our President toured the Great Wall. I’m sure that the biggest question they ask themselves right now is whether or not our government is engaged in a massive campaign of deception. Do you think those folks who are in Yemen right now, training to kill us give a damn whether or not he says “Qur’an” or “Holy Qur’an”?

You see, Pussies can’t compete in the game of physical survival and they are confounded when anyone sees them for the Pussies that they are and refuse to bend themselves to handicaps that Pussies would inflict on them. Our President is astounded that a Nigerian man would load his underwear with explosives and try to murder people on Christmas Day. The fact is that RIGHT NOW, as you read this, Al Qaeda Terrorists are learning how to safely ingest and shove explosives up their ass and the only thing they haven’t figured out yet is how to conceal the blasting cap and shield it in a way that will keep it from being detected or detonated as a result of routine security precautions now in place.

The response of our government will be to have a Beagle shove its cold snout up Granny’s ass.

Everybody has their own ideal as to what REAL American Manhood is. I’m not even going to give you a single opinion as to what I know that to be. If you are confused it’s because somebody confused you. It’s because confusion as to what REAL American Manhood is was injected into our culture by a crowd of people espousing ideals foreign to our traditions and institutions. Their purpose is to render our culture inert and our Nation defenseless. That’s part of the game, it always has been. They think it is good and wholesome to teach young school children that it’s okay for a man to suck another mans dick. Offended? Are you offended by the Truth or me plainly speaking the Truth? The answer to that question may well indicate whether or not you are thinking about how nice it would be to have a cock in your mouth right now. Of course if you came into this world without one, then it’s okay to think about things like that, ESPECIALLY when you think about me.

There is no place in the present or future, for a General George S. Patton. The values he espoused would be considered criminal virtues in this day and age. The fact is that failure to embrace them leads to certain destruction, especially during War. General Patton knew how to cuss, but he knew there was another language that affected the outcome of any Battle.

    Well now I know why you’ve been so quiet today RD.. when you get on a roll its a thing to behold πŸ™‚

  2. Locke n Load says:

    Holy Crap, Brad? I should have had a closer look at the byline..Wow. well done friend, well done. Can’t wait to see the rest!

  3. Air Force Brat says:

    Brad — One thing you will never be is a monotone. Not if you tried all day.

  4. BaconNeggs says:

    MadBrad, you defeat your own message with needless Profanity and cant see it.

    Yes we can all agree that Patton was a great man and that his profanity motivated his troops but that was in a Military setting that would and should, offend the general public in civillian life and thats why intelligent politicians stay away from that kind of language.

    Likewise the emasulation of Men and the current “pussification” of society in general, yes we see it all around us and revile it and agree with your excellent points.

    You quoted the historical context of Patton’s profanity and that was fine when Patton gave that speech.

    However, as you noted above, no amount of Profanity is going to change a bad situation.

    So why then add your profanity for what seems like purely shock value, becuase rather than sound like Patton, your message sound… juvenille.

  5. Bman says:

    Fuckin-A-rights Brad…

    BaconNeggs….I have a response to your post that I will get to later. Your message is received and respected, but I think I know what Brad is conveying in his message. I can’t go into it now though. It’s 4:30am, and Im full-up with Pabst. Will comment when half-assed sober.

  6. MadBrad says:

    It’s all about stage presence B&E.

    Juvenile = Entertaining.

    Why pretend to be something that I’m not? I could be an egghead if I wanted to be. That’s no fun. I don’t want to be labeled as a Preacherman either. The use of “Eloquent Profanity” works my image from all angles.

  7. CMGM says:

    I like Patton. He was a great leader and he knew how and when to cuss. Much of what you say true, but real men don’t need to cuss in front of kids and families. I don’t think Patton did. I think General Patton would have knocked your teeth in if he was there when you said “pass the f…. salt” to your sister.

  8. MadBrad says:

    Wow. I just re-read that. I was a pretty angry person back then. Worse than that, I was a person who claimed to be a Christian but who was headed straight to Hell.

    The writing you see shown above is the product of a person who spent too many years with his eyes focused on the Evil of the day. Even when you think you are doing the right thing it can be the wrong thing, especially when you have taken your eyes off of the Word of God for far too long.

    My friend CMGM has given me a wonderful gift this Lord’s Day. He has shown me where I was so that I may be ever more thankful for where I am. It’s not something I could have ever done for myself.

    The heart that wrote that publication was filled with Fear. God does not give us a Spirit of Fear. That’s why you don’t see me writing like that anymore. I just can’t do it.

    I praise God for that.

    Brad, some of us remember you in the OLD days. Your posts have come 180 since then. You are still irrelevant, crass, and funny without to profanity you used to have.
    Hell, I still love you buddy.
