The Most Difficult Task is to Unlearn Untruths

By guest blogger Sadako Red [see disclaimer]

[June 17, 2018]  Attention!  Now, here this!  I am issuing a challenge to any politician from any big city that wants to debate me in a mano-a-mano contest of wit and logic on any subject of their choosing … or even greased-pig wrestling in the mud if they so desire.  My end-goal?  To make fun of their stupidity and do it publically, relentlessly, and with half my brain tied behind my back; which I’ll do without a shred of remorse.  In fact, I’ll simply say that destroying (metaphorically, of course) any pompous-ass politician is the deepest, most fulfilling form of entertainment I can contemplate.  Pass the popcorn … it’s going to be more than soaring entertainment for you good citizens but it will be a valuable lesson on why you should never elect an idiot for city-level government.

The ancient Greek philosopher Antisthenes once wrote that “the most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.”  He wrote in Greek and although it loses a bit in translation, he tells us that it is human nature to resist change, even when it is clearly the right thing to do and a difficult task.  Yep, that is the basis of my way to destroy politicians everywhere when arguing with them.  Now, we all know that arguing with a politician is like mud wrestling with a pig; everybody gets dirty and the pig likes it.  But what this metaphor fails to convey is that I’m really good at getting dirty too, really good a liking it, and really really good at overwhelming domination of the pig, oops, I mean the politician.  I can do it because politicians most often fail to unlearn what doesn’t work for them and since most are wannabe socialist, my side of the debate is easy.

The readers of General Satterfield’s leadership blog know that I’m no politically-correct braggart or highbrow; I follow through on everything I say.  That is more than a promise, it’s the way I’ve done business for these many decades and came out ahead.  I also like to call crap for what it is; it stinks and yet it gets used by politicians like it’s made of gold … but it’s still crap.  That’s the second part of the way I debate; I use crap better than politicians do every day.  I beat them at their own game, I know what rules they follow and what intellectual fashions they follow, and I do it better than they could ever imagine.  Think of this debate this way; I’ll crush them like the bugs they are.  This means the subject or subjects of the debate are not that important to me.  I would like for the politician to make the choice of what is important to them (rarely anything pro-American) and which they have some semblance of knowledge.

Readers, please get the word out.  I’ll debate right here on the comment pages of this blog; which makes the most sense.  Or … I’ll debate on the floor of the politician’s home turf (wherever that is located).  The only caveat is that the debate is public; otherwise, what’s the point in intellectually wiping the floor with them and making them run away crying like the babies they are.  Remember the most famous quote from Forrest Gump in which he said that “stupid is as stupid does.”   The stupidity of politicians is not just a surface thing, it’s all about their deeds.

    Great post, Sadako Red. I wish you plenty of good sailing with your mission.

      Attention Attention Getting into a squabble with politicians is an entertaining exercise that will only change the minds of those who think for themselves. Thank you Nancy for helping me make that clear.

  2. Wesley Brown

    I’m new to this leadership website but I want to say it’s great. Sadako Red, I am a new fan of yours. Keep up the great works.

  3. Douglas R. Satterfield

    In regard to Sadako Red’s request to debate city-level politicians, I will post a separate blog entry on it. This forum comment section, because of the limitations of my blog theme, is better for readers to have their say. Best of luck to Sadako Red.

  4. Jerry C. Jones

    Thanks Sadako Red for a great blog post. I hope you get some takers to take you on. I have my popcorn ready.

    We are fortunate to have a place like this to make comments freely and to do so where others are smart enough to give a cogent analysis and to challenge the PC orthodoxy that is so prevalent among our youth and power-seeking politicians.

    There are many Sadako Red fans that read this blog and others like it. What sets apart Sadako Red’s articles, Gen Satterfield’s blog, and others like them is that there is no pulling punches and talking nicely about the biggest problems facing any society. The failure of leadership and the failure to see evil when it occurs is something lacking today. I’m not sure if its a symptom of modern society or what but there needs to be people like them to help stamp it out.

      Andrew, you are spot on with your comments. Thanks for helping make sense of the stupidity that we find so often on the Internet and on television.

    What a great start to Father’s Day when I read your blog post today. This is the sort of thing I look forward to each and every day. Opposed to this is the much-watched television which never gives one the freedom of thought that I read about here in Gen Satterfield’s blog. Thanks to all for helping make it so.

  8. Delf A. "Jelly"

    Sadako Red. Great article today and best of luck getting a taker among city politicians. Personally, I look forward to the entertainment value as much as you do.

  9. Dennis Mathes

    Sadako Red. First, let me say that I love the moniker you have with the red cat. Thanks also for what you do here. Second, I know one politician where I live and I will ask if wants to debate but most politicians only want to debate on their stage where they control everything. Good luck.

    HAPPY FATHER’S Day to all the dads out there. Have a great day, S.R.

  11. Wilson Cox

    I am one of your biggest fans here at I truly love your total lack of PC and the fact that you are constantly on the ignorance of politicians. One day I would like to see you take on college snowflakes. Thanks Sadako Red.

      Hey Wilson. Thank you for being part of the fan base here at Gen Satterfield’s leader blog. It has been a pleasure to expose the underlying “deep state” that continues to drag down the greatness of America.

  12. Billy Kenningston

    Good one, Sadako Red. Keep up the humor and wit.

  13. Shawn C. Stolarz

    I nearly snorted my coffee thru my nose this morning when I read your column. Good luck!

  14. Janna Faulkner

    I personally know several of the politicians in my city. I’ll ask if they want to debate you. For some reason, I don’t think they will want to cooperate.

  15. Jonathan B.

    I love it !! Keep up the great work with “stupid politicians” as I find it of great humor. I’ll sit back in my easy chair with popcorn in one hand and a beer in the other. Thank you.

  16. Max Foster

    I’m a great fan of your Sadako Red. I look forward to the debate but I doubt that any politician is willing to wrestle in the mud (metaphorically) with you. They have everything to lose by you exposing them and nothing to gain.

    1. Max Foster

      Best of luck with you taking on politicians. Somehow I doubt they will want to play with someone with your wit.
