‘Cornell Profs: Hire No Republicans’ (2015)

Y’know how I keep saying Science isn’t science anymore? I mean, here they are–self-anointed intellectuals–deciding what the facts are by intimidating and silencing any and all dissent: and this was before Democrats and Loretta Lunch came up with the idea of prosecuting Climbit Change Denial as a crime.

Anyway, this was three years ago and they haven’t gotten better since.

From Marblenecltr’s blog: Idiot Celebrity Endorses Cannibalism

Originally posted on Nwo Report: Human flesh is the finest meat in the world, according to Katy Perry, who puts the “exquisite flavor” of the meat down to “the taboo nature of the product” and the fact that “forbidden pleasures are always the most delicious.” Going as far as to claim that cannibalism is “way…

Words fail me… The probability that she actually knows what she’s talking about is something I would rather not contemplate.

I am not responsible for the headline supplied by Newswithviews.

How bad is education in America? It’s getting to some point beyond my verbal resources.

An Unusual Assignment for Me–and Maybe You Can Help

See the source image

Some of you know me as the contributing editor for The Chalcedon Foundation’s print magazine, Faith for All of Life. For a coming issue of the magazine, I have taken on the task of reviewing, of all things, an Agatha Christie mystery novel–Curtain, Hercule Poirot’s last case.

Christie wrote the novel during World War II and then locked it away in a bank vault, waiting until 1975 to have it published–an unusual procedure which, to my mind, has not been fully explained. Why wait 30 years to publish it?

My review will focus on a single scene in the novel: a dinner. All the characters are seated around the table, and the conversation turns to the topic of what ought to be done with–or to–people who are no longer “valuable to society”–the old, the sick, the retarded, etc. Remember that this was being written during World War II, with Britain fighting for its very life against the Third Reich.

At the table, the more forceful characters declare that people who “don’t matter anymore” ought to be disposed of, somehow. And everyone else just sort of meekly nods and mumbles “of course you’re right,” etc.

When I read that, my hair stood on end. “Whoa! Uh, folks, you’re, like, fighting for survival against the Nazis, and the Nazis, well–they stand for the very ideas that you’re bandying about and tepidly agreeing with! Why are you fighting Hitler and Himmler, and at the same time talking like them?” I was astonished.

Although the novel was written during the war–and we are told that Christie feared she might be killed in a German bombing raid or V-2 strike, which is why she stowed the book in a bank vault, just in case–its setting in time is left quite vague. There’s nothing in it to show in what year, or era, the fictional events occurred.

Why this conversation at the dinner table? Christie often drew her fictional characters from life. It seems more than likely that she had heard such conversations among people she knew, either during the war or just before it. She was writing about certain ideas that certain people, who were not Nazis, actually had. One is left wondering: can it be said that Britain really won the war, if key elements of Nazi ideology were left festering in British culture? What was happening to Britain’s Christianity?

I also wonder what other Curtain readers think of this. Tell me if you like. I’d love to know.

 


‘Trivial But Annoying’ (2015)

Yesterday it was some jerk parked right in the middle of Main Street, creating a traffic jam, while he went into a store. There were no parking spaces open, so he just left his car in the middle of the street.

Betcha anything he’s a liberal.

And P.S., you’ve gotta watch your step around here now, because some other schmendrick is walking his our her big dog all around other people’s yards without cleaning up the creature’s enormous feces.


‘Dems Say the Darnedest Things’ (2015)

And to think this was written well before the Perpetual Democrat Tantrum began on Election Night 2016… These people definitely don’t play with a full deck.

‘Christians’ Letters to the Volcano Goddess’ (2015)

When they write the history of this benighted age, they ought to devote at least one volume to the lackluster performance of the institutional church. When it was time to stand, the church was lying down. When it was time to speak up, the church was silent. And so on.

‘Lawsuit Seeks to Abolish Bible-Reading in Church’ (2015)

See? I can still write exaggerated satire that can never, ever possibly come true…

My Newswithviews Column, Jan. 11 (‘What Do They Want, in the End?’)

Did you ever wonder what America would be like, if leftids got everything they say they want?

Y’know, I think I might’ve been the only one who read the Democrat Platform of 2016. “Investigate” the newfangled crime of “Climate Change Denial.” Set the minimum wage at $15/hour, nationwide. “Rein in” those profits! And so on.

‘Nameless Portraits on a Colossal Scale’ (2014)

See the source image

Let’s hear it for the Olmecs of southern Mexico–another civilization with great achievements to its credit, but nevertheless consigned to oblivion.

Point this, this has happened to any number of civilizations; and it could happen to ours. We don’t know what the Olmecs did to make their civilization disappear–but we can see with our own eyes what we’re doing to make ours disappear.
