Calling all Warriors

I have a confession to make – I used to love watching the WWF. Wrestlemania, Survivor Series, Summer Slams, and the awesome Royal Rumbles.

It was pure cheese but back in the mid 80’s, in the days of Demolition, the Hart Foundation, “Hacksaw” Jim Dougan, Macho Man Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, Big John Studd, King Kong Bundy, Rowdy Roddy Piper “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka, Tito Santana, George “The Animal” Steele, Big Boss Man, The Rockers, The Iron Sheik, Nikolia Volkoff, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Hercules, Hillbilly Jim, The Moondogs (Joe and Spot I think), etc it was entertaining cheese.

I don’t think there was any doubt that it hit its peak in 1990 at Wrestlemania VI with the title match between Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior.

Sure it was still ok with some great Summer Slams and Survivor Series from about 91 to 93 but from there it descended rapidly into the utter shit it is today. When the best catch phrase someone can come up with is “Suck it” you know you really are scraping the scum off the bottom of the barrel.

Anyway, back to point. Since retiring from wrestling, The Ultimate Warrior has in recent time dedicated a lot of time to (among other things) public speaking and seminars – but not about his wrestling exploits – rather about his life philosophies and what he calls Warrior Conservatism.

Allow me to share with you some of his thoughts

On going to war in Iraq

"Our going to the United Nations to seek approval is like me asking the bum on the street for approval to do what it is I need to do to make my life work. It used to be that when someone wanted to know how to do something right, be the best at what they had their mind set on doing, they would go and seek guidance from the best.

America is the best. America is its own mentor. Because it is it should not be asking third world thugs what it should do. The United Nations is a disgrace to humankind. They have never stood for, or up to, anything. America should airlift it in its entirety and drop it along with the first bomb."

"Those Americans who want America to get United Nations approval are Anti-American. There are many people in favor of the war who preface their arguments by saying that they are "not calling anybody Anti-American." They are wrong...

...Because as long as they are passive and nonjudgmental on this vital distinction, the philosophy of America they say they want to preserve is going down the toilet, and if they are contributing to that, they are UN-American."

On Bill KKKlinton

"Clinton’s “My LowLife” is contaminating book stores."

"Billary tells us he prodded thy young, sluttish cow named Lewinsky "because I could." There’s your epitaph, Clinton. Fits the pragmatic, patheticness of your life perfectly, and all that your cause stands for."

On the 2004 crushing election victory
"Kerry talks, in his concession speech, about common ground, bridging the divide, unity, etc. How? Evade reality and enable moral relativity? Tell my kids what they see, touch, smell and hear is not real if some other human being says so, denies so? No thanks. Kiss my warrior ass. For almost four years, two of it the campaign period, you liberal lesions have demonized decency, tradition and values, and I don't plan to forget it. I will celebrate this victory with a full-blown chest -- pseudo Conservatives say not to gloat, while pure Conservatives know not to have any jackets custom-made for the next few days due to the ribcage swelling -- but I will at the same time reload all my weapons -- physically, mentally and spiritually -- to fight to take you out. Those of us thinking know what you have planned: The Wicked Witch of 2008 waits in the wings."

There is heaps more gold like this over at his website

It looks like there will be a lot added over the course of the year and this is one Warrior who has had his Warrior-ness reaffirmed.

Get on over there and check it out now.

And if there is still any doubt as to what a true champion this guy is, I will leave you with this:

"Cheney saying F’yourself to Patrick Leahy on the Senate Floor. Many are worried that civility is dead. Frankly my faith in it has been a tad bit restored.

Cheney telling Leahy to F’yourself is the most civil (and rational) act I’ve heard of since I’ve been paying attention to politics. I would have rated it as an even higher level of civility if Cheney had jacked his jaw and laid the pompous, duplicitous blowhard flat out on his back right there on the pristine Senate floor, then straddled over him, giving that twatish Leahy a dick-in-the-dirt view at real balls, then like John Wayne, thrown in another F’yourself for old-fashioned, traditional measure."

Oh yeah.
