General Patton used enough colorful language to make social media blush. His slaps, rants and proud postures, chin tipped up, were all part of his character, as most famously portrayed in Patton's film in 1970.
In the film's opening, the great General addresses the troops in front of the American flag. His message is simple, how in the face of battle to act like a man!
(WARNING: This will be the article's only disclaimer about how in some cases, men and women would perform at the same physical level.)
The latest polling shows at least 99% of the world identifies itself as male or female. Still, the same IPSO poll claims that as many as 4% of young people are "experimenting" with interest in "something new" in the realm of gender.
Turn on the TV or visit social media or "woke" leftists, and they try to make you believe this is a new day, that everyone is changing sexes because, well, who knows? Maybe it's something all the men and women of the world failed to try?
In other words, all those boys at D-Day crossing the English channel to kill Germans were not their more authentic selves?
With its cavalcade of endless "non-binary" choices, bombardment media presents this mini phenomenon as commonplace, only to confuse everyone. Rebellion is an age-old desire to reject the older generation with something that will cause a shock?
During Patton's time, boys were expected to rebel but not get stuck in perpetual fluidity and unidentifiable adolescence. Today it seems a career path or even an academic ambition — a Ph.D. in shock value.
In my book "The Tragedy of Patton," I uncover the lesser-known side of General Patton, the boy with a high-pitched voice, dysgraphia, and profound anxiety about being a failure. The point was to show how he built the man that made him a great General.
Like today's young people, General George Patton didn't quite fit in with his era either: He was a classical warrior trapped in a 20th century body, and he couldn't quite relate. Patton excelled by rebelling against it, living his 19th century Wild West lifestyle in the 1940s.
He stood out then and now as an uber-male. Today's leftists would call him "toxic." Still, of course, he knew who he was, or at least who he was trying to be, and that was appealing to his fans.
The strategy of gender obliteration, except for a small percentage that might genuinely struggle, is one of the newest weapons in the New Marxism playbook to divide and conquer in the name of the coming Utopian State.
A centralized government cannot allow a more vital identity than "the masses" or "the group," like gender, ethnicity, family or faith. The state must erase distinctions to create the universal person.
And with no major wars to fight, the explosion of the welfare state and a massive leisure class, it could not be a more opportune time to build the Utopia?
We witnessed great Utopia in the killing fields of Europe, Asia and the world, and saw how it made its way onto American shores in the '20s-30s and invaded our schools and churches in the 1960s and beyond.
The "throwbacks" like Patton stand out because they are bold (Patton's mantra was "audacity, audacity, audacity"), to be genuine (appealing to young people then and now), to fight off that group acceptance, and most importantly, to learn how to win at being yourself.
Patton believed the American people needed heroes (and he was happy to be one of them). Doesn't every generation need heroes to emulate and villains to decry? As a father, husband or leader, especially a military one, is not born but created.
Patton's message was to act like a man so you can be proud of yourself!
