Real Men Love Real Men, and Other Notes


Allen West, R; Florida: "We need you to come in and lock shields, and strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you. To let these other women know on the other side — these planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient. That’s what we need you to do. Because if you don’t, then the debt will continue to grow…deficits will continue to grow. "

According to Congressman West, women exist for the purpose of 'strengthening up the men who are going to fight for you.' Women exist for no other purpose except to produce ideal men, the vagina exists only as an incubator, and only some poor neutered homo could possibly want it for anything else.

Allen West is, of course, the perfect opposite of a homo, and just to emphasize this already obvious fact he pointed to the ancient Spartans as the ideal that American men should strive for, the pinnacle of manliness that must leave other men quivering with admiration is they themselves hope to be real men. Go get em tigers.

On a more serious note, I was struck by the definitive future statement, 'the men who are going to fight for you.' West takes it as a given that being metaphorically tied to the train tracks and in need of manly rescue is an essential state of being for the American woman; today, tomorrow, and forever. This eternal peril is necessary because pleasure is effeminate. Real men cannot be allowed to ever express love through things like joy or laughter, but only through violently defending the people and things they love against the latest outrage.

This leaves any prospective real man in a bind. Because not even the most chauvinistic Bubbas are insane enough to actually want their wives or daughters to be in mortal danger, yet still believe that avenging some affront to home and hearth is the only true expression of masculine love. Demagogues have always been very happy to solve this conundrum for them, offering threats in the form of minorities, foreigners, street criminals, outsiders and eccentrics. People who are socially weak; and therefore safely hated and 'defeated', yet in spite of their weakness still somehow capable of destroying everything you love through some dark magic, and somehow always still there and still threatening no matter how much manly punishment is unleashed upon them.

And since you can never be allowed to conclude that the people you love are as safe as mortality allows, (this would be willfully embracing impotence) you must then conclude that there can never possibly be any such thing as enough power or capacity for destruction. You'll start doing things like demanding the right to take a gun to the coffee shop, as if this is some ancient social norm only recently violated. You will start to insist, perhaps in a roundabout way, that institutions responsible for projecting force; military, police, etc. are incapable of error, that soldiers are never sent on an unwise mission, police never arrest the wrong man, that lack of fear towards insufficiently harsh punishment is the motive behind all crime. Everything you say will come out of your mouth in an aggressive, defensive matter. If you feel the need to tell someone how much you love peanut butter sundaes, you will do so by saying 'I don't care what you think, but if you don't think the peanut butter sundae is the most delicious thing on God's green earth to you can suck my country dick.'

You'll be a real asshole, is what I'm saying. And you'll never be very happy. But never mind, happiness would only neuter you right?
