‘The Last Light Shinning’
A Barbaric Impression of The Latest Casualty to the Marines’ Surrender to Political Correctness by WILLIAM S. LIND

Shep recently sent me this article link from The American Conservative:

July 25, 2018

If you don’t have time to read it here is a salient quote:

“Several weeks ago, the United States Marine Corps copied its old Japanese adversary and committed seppuku. It did so by relieving its best battalion commander and most promising future senior combat leader of his command, thus terminating his career. As another Marine lieutenant colonel said to me, ‘The last light shining in the darkness has been put out.’”

So what happened to get the last war dog with teeth removed from the most storied branch of the U.S. Military?

The Colonel said “We’re not going to do that faggot stuff.”

A sensitive set of bunny ears in Marine uniform heard this, complained and a general dismissed the colonel, ending his career. Since then numerous officers under him have resigned in what is likened to by the author as a mass career suicide.

By all accounts Lieutenant Colonel Marcus Mainz was a man of true martial character, the kind of person who could have fought in pre-machine warfare, led armies of warriors rather than herds of tricked out moral drones. His loss, I suppose, is sickening, to Shep, who is a Marine veteran.

I suppose, Shep, you sent this to me wanting my rancid opinion.

So what does a crackpot barbarism advocate think of what is obviously the emasculation of the most masculine branch of the U.S. armed services?

First, the man, Mainz, has, in my mind, been done a service, for he can now seek a pursuit worthy of his quality, perhaps serving the people of his nation rather than the global elite he has been serving. He should run for president and say faggot in every speech.

Second, is the fact that the highly intelligent, conservative, military thinker and teacher who is the author of this article needs his head examined and then needs to have all of the lingering faggotry expunged. In the article, this man actually states that the use of the term faggot was wrong and should be punished. So, even as he pretends to rail against political correctness and cultural Marxism, he carries that faggot flag rippling in the feminized communist wind above his pasty egg head. Reading this article is like listening to a simpering sissy complain that he has been forced into homosexual habits even as he begs to suck my cock.

Third, I think it is a good thing, good morally, good in the aggregate and good for the future that the Marines are being turned into whining sissies. The fact is, that all branches of the U.S. Military serve, first and foremost, the global banking elite, not the People of the United States. In fact, every time one of our men is killed fighting for international interests overseas we, as a people, have been successfully attacked by the Internationalists and have taken a casualty. The less effective the Marines become in combat and the less masculine they appear, the fewer of our young men will be lured into these evil enterprises to level foreign infrastructure so that rich corporations can get richer rebuilding the mess.

Fourthly, although I won’t be alive to see it, since the U.S. Marine Corp will be tasked in the future by its internationalist masters with reconquering portions of these United States, I say let it wear pink, tip toe through the tulips and suck hermaphroditic dick. That might give actual Americans a chance to defend against the homegrown MERC goons who will be tasked with enforcing Political Correctness. I guarantee the readers young enough to see the future, that you will be treated to U.S. Marines shooting down American Citizens in these United States for what those citizens spoke from their dissident mouths.

Sorry, Shep, that this is what has become of your warrior fraternity.

Satire or prophesy? Hey, don't laugh! It's not funny. They're lifestyle and mannerisms are just as normal and wholesome as Mom's apple pie. Their romantic relationships are morally equal to any cisgender heterosexual coupling. Their contribution to the nation's defense is valued as much as that of any straight service member. They are not to be disparaged or made sport of in any way. Do we have to make more examples here? Do you dare to touch that third rail?

Bob -

White Christian Zionists may be useful idiots but they're certainly not safe. I can't stand Sasha Baron Cohen, but I happened on a 5-minute clip of his new Showtime special where he disguises himself as an Israeli official to dupe white, Christian, pro-Israel US politicians into making themselves fodder for ridicule. Not ridicule of their Zionism per se, just ridicule of their whiteness, Christianity, provincialism, etc.

Also, I live in a majority Hispanic state where most of the local Hispanics were born stateside. They're far more docile, dysgenic, malleable and leftist than Mexican nationals, and even a lot of the strong Catholic ones vote Dem for the benefits. That's why Latin migration is desirable to elites, not just because it drives down wages and creates divisions that are more easily ruled, but because (in general) it brings in people who are craven to begin with and then GMOs the venom out of them.

It's going to be interesting to observe the evolving anti-Christian power in America. White Christian Zionists seem safe for now as useful idiots. RCC's alignment with the NWO agenda seems more apparent every day that passes. Whether Hispanics' Catholicism wil ultimately present a problem is an open question. "Benditos sean los maricones" - I just can't see that flying.

Bob brings up a good point. Militant Christophobes are able to exert a great deal of influence on the military these days. Historically there have always been individuals serving in the U.S. Armed Forces who objected to having acts of religious worship forced on them. Even such minor things such as compulsory attendance at Sunday non-denominational church services during boot camp, regardless of the old saw about there being ‘no atheists in foxholes’ (like those individuals really didn’t want a spell to rest and relax, regardless of what they believed? Go figure it?). The difference now is that the anti-religion cranks are in a position to force their disbelief on everybody else. Nowadays every fringe identity group has its own political advocacy organization pushing its own agenda in the military. In fact the only demographic within the military that does NOT have its own advocacy group are heterosexual Christian white male patriots. So if hetero Christian white males don’t want to be relegated to the role of second class citizen, then they have some choices to make. They can organize themselves, like the atheists, LGBTQ, blacks, Latinos, feminists and everybody else has, or they can boycott the military and refuse to participate in such ruinous nonsense. As a third option they can join the military as a sleeper agent for traditional American patriotism. The most virulent threat to American freedom comes from forces inside the country rather than from any foreign power. Like James says, at this point any foreign military interventions are likely to serve only the interests of the Globalists (again, GEOTUS Trump notwithstanding). But there are still good reasons to join the military, such as gaining military training and experience against future need and/or using the benefits of service to finance an education or business venture. There will be many others like you. Just recognize what you are getting yourself into, that you won't always know who you can trust, and don’t out yourself by committing any unforced errors. Like Lt. Col. Mainz did. The Left has no sense of humor, only a desire to destroy its opposition whenever the opportunity arises. So don't joke and read “SJW’s Always Lie”. American service members were always enjoined to be ‘apolitical’ and not publicly express political sentiments while in uniform, but that ethos is only enforced on conservatives and traditionalists now, isn’t it? The PC society we find ourselves in today is not unlike that of the former Soviet Union, where you never wanted to pass up an opportunity to keep quiet and NOT express an opinion that could merit unwanted attention from the Establishment. For now, those of you who have something to lose by being too outspoken are well advised to keep your own counsel. Is this trip necessary? Not anymore!

Yes, this is appalling. However, it’s hardly uprising and certainly nothing new. All the services today are prone to eat their young like a panicked female mink whenever the powers-that-be believe they have been publically embarrassed by a subordinate’s speech or conduct. The Marines certainly no less than any of the others. The worth to the service of a commissioned officer is particularly prone to being assessed in accordance with a ‘zero defects’ mindset. So screw up once in the eyes of your superiors and you’re done! No second chances. When you embark on a career in the military you are well advised to resign yourself to the possibility that a single ‘Aw shit!’ could wipe clean all your ‘Atta boys’. If you are a major unit commander, like Lieutenant Colonel Mainz, you’ll be dismissed with a vague explanation for public consumption that your superiors have “lost trust and confidence in your ability to lead”. So have a backup plan. When it’s time to leave, it will be time to leave now.

Ironically enough in the old days the services were much harsher and more controlling in their discipline, but at the same time more willing to grant second chances. For example as a new second lieutenant Colin Powell lost his pistol on a field training exercise. The pistol was recovered by other members of the unit so Powell’s company commander decided no harm no foul and that a verbal upbraiding was sufficient punishment to ensure that appropriate attention be paid in the future to important details such as maintaining possession of your personal weapon on the part of the new officer. Nowadays however, losing your weapon, or other any other ‘sensitive item’ entrusted to you, would besmirch your record such that it would effectively end any and all prospects for promotion you might have had. The matter would have been taken out of the company commander’s hands. Political Correctness/ Cultural Marxism merely adds to the long list of often ridiculous reasons for which you can be sacked. During peacetime the services only worry about combat effectiveness tangentially. But the chain-of-command remains very much concerned about their respective service’s public image, or what they believe it should be. Nothing much will change in this regard unless and until the United States suffers a disastrous military defeat. Then of course the entire government will closely examine everything in the military’s organization, training and culture for clues as to what may have led to the defeat. As I have said before, the major challenge facing the American military is that the country’s political leadership currently lacks the will to win any armed conflict (GEOTUS Trump notwithstanding). So nothing the military is able to accomplish matters much if the civilian leadership stands ever ready to squander its gains. Plus as James opined, if the Globalist Deep State is determined to demoralize and enervate America’s armed forces, so much the better. Then they won’t be available to be used to oppress American citizens in the name of PC/Cultural Marxism.

I don't know what the future holds, but I do know that in the here and now, Headquarters Marines Corps has made a value judgment—they prefer faggots to Marines.

"faggot stuff"

Surely LTC Mainz's remark was merely a statement of his opposition to fascism.
