Trump’s Language Reminiscent Of A Tactless WWII Era American – Will It Cost Him Votes?

George S. Patton, it could be argued, is the greatest American combat general in our history.  During WWII Dwight Eisenhower was a diplomat and an administrator.

Patton actually led troops into battle.

He swore.  He drank.  He was a pure warrior.  George S. Patton was at times completely devoid of tact, and it got him into a whole lot of trouble on more than one occasion.  He did know how to win a war.  And that was to kill as many of the enemy as possible.  That’s how wars are won.

Here we have a man in the person of Donald Trump who is at times also utterly devoid of tact.  His language is rough and profane.  There is no refinement about him, there is no gentility.  He speaks plainly, crudely and with brutal candor.  It’s not poetry and it’s not smooth or soothing happy-talk, like what we’ve gotten for the past seven years from the current CIC.  And look where we are.

We’re in a war against Islam for our very survival, even though we’re constantly told by the current Commander In Chief, as we were told by the one who held that office before him, that we’re not in a war against Islam. Islam means peace, said President Bush.  Islam means peace, says President Obama.

No.  In Arabic Islam means submission.

This war has ebbed and flowed, but has never ended, since the 7th Century.  It is an eternal war.  Please notice I did not say “Radical Islam.”  There is no such thing as “Radical Islam”.  There is only pure, unfiltered, doctrinal 7th Century Islam, as written in the Quran and the Hadith collections.

We’re in a corner here, thanks to the abject misunderstanding of Islam’s history and doctrine by the entire Western World.  Europe is just now beginning to awaken to the reality of Islam’s horrors, as its cities are over-run by millions of invading Muslims and its women are gang-raped.  More are coming behind the ones who have already arrived.

So, depending on what they believe our situation to be, Americans have a big decision to make.  Which man do you want to lead us through the war?  Or do Americans actually perceive that we’re really in a war?

The jihad movement is never going to go away, no matter who becomes the Commander In Chief.

And whom we choose to be the next CIC will determine whether or not we survive as a Constitutional Republic.

What do you believe our situation to be?  Are we really in deep trouble?  Or have the counter-jihadists, such as I, over-stated the case?  Can all of this violent “extremism” business, which Mr. Obama tells us has nothing to do with Islam, be worked out solely through diplomacy and carefully measured responses to acts of extremist violence?  Or should we just surrender and convert?

These are the grave questions Americans must answer.

Why did Ike choose George S. Patton to lead the Third Army out of Normandy through Europe?  Not for his eloquence or for his diplomatic or administrative skills.  Ike put Patton charge because he was an unvarnished, merciless warrior.

Whither goest thou, America?

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
