You did this to Josh Hawley

“I want to talk with you about the left’s attempt to give us a world beyond men. … While the left may celebrate this decline of men, I for one cannot join them. No one should.”
— Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) addressing the National Conservatism Conference on Nov. 1
I can remember the moment I started to become a ghost of myself , a shallow husk of a man. It was an afternoon when I heard somebody referring to someone who was going to give birth as a “person.” Can’t be! I thought. Persons don’t do that! Persons are not the ones we can legally force to give birth, they’re the other ones! It must be that society is dying. It must be that there aren’t Men anymore, not even one, and it’s all the left’s fault.
Where was masculine virtue? Where were “the kind of men who make republics possible”? As I said in my remarks, “It is not too much to say that our ability to get that kind of men will determine the success of our long experiment in liberty.” Well, this grinning, dead-eyed fellow whom I saw in every reflective surface did not even believe in representative government! How could the country survive if this was what it was sending to Congress? This was not the kind of stuff the Founders had been counting on. They would have spit in his eye, except maybe Aaron Burr, whose behavior you never could predict.
No, manhood is in a serious state of decline, and it is all the fault of the left. “Can we be surprised that after years of being told they are the problem, that their manhood is the problem, more and more men are withdrawing into the enclave of idleness and pornography and video games?” Yes, it is they who have driven us into the arms of video games and pornography! It is disgusting what the left is making us do.
The left would have you believe that there are many right ways to be a man (false!) or, worse yet, a person, with "X" as the gender on their passport no less! But just to show them, I refuse to try any of these ways. Instead, I will hold up Donald Trump as a role model, I will continue to insist that the lies he tells about democracy are true, and I will blame the left for all my failures.
