Jacob Rees-Mogg is the only hope to save the Tories and UK from Theresa May’s botched Brexit.
Many say Mogg isn’t fit to lead, he doesn't have the qualities or the fire to become Tory leader and Britain’s next PM, as if British Prime Ministers are renowned for being hot-heads in the first place. I say hogwash. Jacob Rees-Mogg is by far the fittest man for the job and the only person in the conservative party with the required testicular fortitude. here are 5 reasons why you need to get some moggmentum.
1. He’s a man of principle & character.
In particular the right sort of British principles. He is a true conservative that believes in true, traditional conservative values.
Yes, he may be soft spoken but don’t you dare mistake that for weakness. Unlike these fake, spineless, value-compromising Tories who have infested parliament for so long, Mr. Rees-Mogg has a backbone. He is a man of principle, he stands up for what he believes in with unflinching confidence even when he knows the media will spin his lines into soundbites and paint him as a fool. He never folds under media scrutiny and holds his ground against any backlash. This is what arguing from a position of principle looks like, in practice. In his recent interview with ITV's Good Morning Britain, he made very clear his stance on gay marriage and abortion and didn’t backtrack when pressure was applied by the hosts.
He is a family man- the father of 6 children- and a man who believes in the sanctity of life and the family unit. Can any serious person argue that we have not missed these qualities in our leadership of late? These are the qualities Britain needs to lead this country, particularly at a time when decisions are being made that will define the path of a generation or more. Europe's most powerful leaders are all childless: German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, and the French President Emmanuel Macron. The list continues with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. What cares do these career politicians have for our sons and daughters, beyond the hypothetical caring one can do for the well-being of someone you do not know? Rees-Mogg need only look at his own children sat at his feet to be reminded of the happy weight of one generation’s duty to the next.
"Europe today has little desire to reproduce itself, fight for itself or even take its own side in an argument". — Douglas Murray, The Times.
The only argument I’ve seen against @Jacob_Rees_Mogg is that he’s anti abortion.— Mark (@markantro) February 8, 2018
Being against the murder of the unborn isn’t the worst moral position one could have.
If this is the best that his critics have, then they have nothing!
Mogg for PM!
Whether you agree with his voting record or not Jacob Rees-Mogg has consistently voted the same way throughout his political career. That’s commendable, particularly when compared to Britain’s bipartisan batch of flip-flopping, indecisive and fair-weather politicians in Parliament.
2. The Red Left and the Crony Capitalist Right Hate Him.
The political left has been alarmed by Jacob Rees-Mogg’s growth in popularity over the last year. With a raised profile thanks to flawlessly executed media appearances and, by fortune, rising in parallel to a resurgence in conservative philosophy he has become a lodestone for true right-wing politics. The left is running scared On the bow-wave of Rees-Mogg’s political battlecruiser- every deft deflection of an anarchist heckler or Labour politician left reeling by his rapier-wit becomes a sign of his possible rise to power. Naturally, with those whose talent is so evident, his enemies come from his own side also. Rees-Mogg infuriates some within his own party. Tory MP Anna Soubry who stated she "couldn't stay in a party" if it was lead by Jacob Rees-Mogg because of his views on Brexit and abortion- despite Soubry herself representing constituents who overwhelmingly voted to leave the European Union.
When the media and establishment hacks on both sides are railing against him, he must be doing something right.
3. He’s not afraid to stand up to ANTIFA Thugs.
Recently Moggy stood up against ANTIFA thugs who attempted to no-platform him during a speech he was giving at the University of the West of England (UWE). They entered abruptly and began screaming “no platform for racists and homophobes”. Cool as a cold salad vegetable on ice Rees-Mogg gets up, walks over to them and asks them what they would like to talk about. One Antifa member replied, “you are not worth debating.” Typical leftist behavior, shut down your political opponent because you can’t win in an actual debate- and expertly exposed by the man with the crisp side-parting.The weak disruptive tactics backfired when the Antifa mob became more aggressive in the face of reason and started pushing and shoving members of the audience, eventually leading to punches being thrown.
Jacob Rees-Mogg then proceeds to stand in harm's way asking for everyone to calm down, until the unwashed sons of middle-class business men decided to go home to mummy and have some supper. As Rees-Mogg noted later, he knew he was in no real danger as for all their hysterical wailing these were still British boys with whom he was engaging. Withot raising a finger he defuses a situation that many others would have enflamed. The actions of Rees-Mogg causing some audience members who originally opposed him to be won over by his courageous action. That is worth reiterating- through being a gentleman and standing between the public and Communist thugs, people who disagreed with his policies came to respect the man. This goes to show the stark contrast between political ideologies on display here. One side is throwing baseless accusations and disrupting what was a peaceful talk in an attempt to censor free speech and the other is attempting to let everyone's voice be heard.
4. He is hard-line pro Brexit.
Here is the clincher and why I’m throwing my hat in the ring for Jacob Rees-Mogg. He is uncompromising in his anti-EU stance over the years and has always been an ardent opponent of the European Union kleptocracy. His voting record shows he has consistently opposed European Union Integration, repeatedly voted against UK membership of the EU and he voted 7 times since 2011 for a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU. As I said at the top of the article, this is what a man of principle looks like. He has weighed the evidence and voted accordingly- regardless of the popularity of his views or chance of victory. Principles matter.
He is also against free movement after Brexit is completed. Moggy has always been in favor of strict immigration laws and that doesn't change after Britain leaves the EU. This does not mean that Britain becomes some kind of insular nation- well, rather we should say Britannia will not become more insular than she already is.
Rees-Mogg wants out of the single market. He knows that by staying in the single market we are essentially staying in the EU and cutting ourselves off from a more prosperous and brighter future with other economically booming countries outside the EU. He understands that the EU is doomed and bound to drag us down with it if we stay connected to this failed experiment.
He expertly grilled a squirming David Davis in a recent Brexit select committee meeting. Mogg, correctly pointed out the ridiculous compromises the committee are willing to accept in the Brexit deal, making Britain nothing more than a vassal state during the 2-year transitional period.
I don’t agree with Jacob Rees-Mogg on all of his political stances but I do believe he is the best bet we have for securing the Brexit we voted for. The best bet for guiding Britain in the right direction and with the right political values during these turbulent times and into the future.
May and her crony Tory traitors are more interested in clutching on to power, appeasing their buddies in high places and attempting the save face by bending over backwards for the liberal media. They do this all while suckling on the teat of the European Union unwilling to make a firm decision to grow up and lead the nation. “Brexit means Brexit” but Mrs. May’s words ring hollow- she is uncommitted to her own path, unconvincing and weak in the face of a Remain camp that seeks to overthrow the democratic will of the British people.
The Remain-bloc Tories seek to undermine the core British values that hold this great country together. They seek to undermine the vote of the British people and undermine British democracy itself. Instead of actually implementing policies based on conservative policies and interests of the British voters. They seek to benefit themselves and their public persona. They fear the iron fist of a strong European Union, which is a corrupt system we are supposed to be leaving in our wake- and in doing so are bending the knee to Verhofstadt, Merkel, and Tusk. They do this in some vain attempt to be perceived as both reasonable in the eyes of the general public and amenable to their Eurocrat overlords- a dangerous game of appeasement that Britons have never played well. They compromise their values and the values of Britain as a whole. They make us look weak, and even now we feel like a weak nation-. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, the idea that Britain cannot now stand ‘alone’ on the world stage is popular in Britain.
I do not believe in this Europhilic mythology, and neither does Rees-Mogg.
It’s plain to see, Jacob Rees-Mogg is a true conservative, a true British man that believes in the traditional family unit, he believes in what he stands for and wants what is best for Britain. He’s a non-compromising Brexiteer. He will fight for the interests of the British people and what they voted for. We need to show the European Union and the Conservative party that we, the British people, will not stand for their lies and deceit anymore. By backing Jacob Rees-Mogg we show what side of the fence we stand on and what sort of ideals we want for Britain.
5. He is the bearer of the idea whose time has come
As we have shown in our previous article 10 Ways the Mainstream Media is Losing the War on Memes, the traditional old guard media is dying and they are hammering in the nails on their own coffin. Each nail an example of hubris, each hammer strike the voice of a people who are sick of being lied to and about. Meme culture, 4chan, political commentary and alternative news on YouTube are winning the online political war- and the war is not between left and right politics but self-determination and liberty versus unending authoritarian tyranny.
As you know, the left cannot meme.
The left has become the establishment fogies, they are the status quo by virtue of their relentless moralizing from the pulpits of social justice and neo-Marxist philosophies. What power does telling people it is wrong to be a White person have against the chaotic brilliance of an entire generation of internet denizens? This authoritarian left is incredibly dangerous- a viper with perfect hair and polished teeth who tells you without irony that your homeland was always part of Africa and that really, your culture doesn’t exist. Dangerous, yes- but these leftists play to our advantage in terms of pushing out our ideas and actualizing them into public discourse. They unwittingly have provided a framework for satire- and memes are a satirical art form. Never in history have political movements been able to affect public opinion in such a way. We can meme something into the consciousness of the public and change the political landscape. We have seen memes devised on /pol/ become national news overnight. We have seen politicians careers destroyed and made off the back of a meme war.
If Donald J. Trump can be memed into the White House with an Egyptian frog deity and the O.K symbol then Jacob Rees-Mogg can be memed into the Prime Ministerial position.
It is time to show the British public and the out of touch europhiles in Parliament that you can’t clog the Mogg.
