A Good Quote from A Real Hero

"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 its way out of a ****-soaked paper bag. ... As for the types of comments I make, sometimes I just, By God, get carried away with my own eloquence."

Imagine for one minute this chap was your country's leader. Political correctness would mean nothing.

This general had a different approach:

"General Washington’s first official order, July 4th 1775, reads:

""The General most earnestly requires and expects a due observance of those articles of war established for the government of the army, which forbid profane cursing, swearing, and drunkenness. And in like manner he requires and expects of all officers and soldiers, not engaged in actual duty, a punctual attendance on Divine services, to implore the blessing of Heaven upon the means used for our safety and defense.""

He did have some success in a war of national independence by the above means.

General Patton was a hero who saw through the Jewish controlled influence and wasn't afraid to speak out about it.
