Airline Passenger Gets ‘Nose Bitten Off’ in Brawl

See the source image

Maybe now they’ll come out with “Brawling Drunks” paper dolls.

Remember when airline travel was sort of glamorous? When people got dressed up for it? When Dixie Dugan became an airline hostess (“stewardess,” back then)?

Our culture has somewhat coarsened in the interval.

This weekend, aboard a Ryanair flight from Tenerife to Glasgow, two drunks got into a fistfight, quite alarming for the other passengers, and the guy who tried to break it up–well, he got his nose bitten off, according to several witnesses (https://metro.co.uk/2019/03/17/ryanair-passenger-nose-bitten-off-brawl-kicks-off-flight-tenerife-8917945/). The two brawlers were arrested by police when the plane landed.

An old proverb says, “Those who in quarrels interpose/ Oft must wipe a bloody nose.” And how.

The poor guy–he was only trying to do what he thought was right. He can’t help it that the ambience of an airliner has come to resemble that of a saloon in an old Western. All they needed was somebody at the piano playing Oh, Them Golden Slippers.

We reap what we sow.

 


Feinstein: Require Schools to ‘Teach’ Climate Change

See the source image

Here’s more mischief that has to be stopped: Senator Diane Feinstein has proposed a “Climate Change Education Act” that would require public school teachers to teach “human-induced climate change” in every school in America (https://www.breitbart.com/environment/2019/02/20/dianne-feinstein-pushes-funding-for-climate-change-indoctrination/).

Here we go again with the “immediate danger” of imaginary “climate change.” Teachers will have to be trained and mobilized (more money! more money!) to convince American children that the “evidence for human-induced climate change is overwhelming and undeniable.

So no one is denying it? Coulda fooled me! And the evidence is not so much “overwhelming” as it is cherry-picked and manufactured.

Climate Change, which used to be “Global Warming,” is the religion of humanism’s End Times scenario, to be averted by ponying up higher taxes and giving government vast new powers that it doesn’t have. To require it to be taught in all our schools can be seen as an unconstitutional attempt to establish a religion.

Our public schools and universities are the temples of humanism, and teachers’ unions and college professors are its priesthood.

The 2016 Democrat platform proposed to give the attorney general power to “investigate” the supposed “crime” of “climate change denial.” Got that? It would be made against the law to disbelieve in man-made climate change. No First Amendment for you! Whoever has the keys to the jail house would get to decide what constitutes the settled science.

There is no bigger threat to America’s survival as a free country than the Democrat Party.


We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Civics!

Friday’s “Youth Climate Strike” in America, which was supposed to feature gazillions of kids walking out of high school classes to “protest” Climbit Change Etc., mostly fizzled out; but it was a big Thing in Europe, and you can bet the house they’ll try again next year, if not sooner.

Meanwhile, we have 13-year-olds demanding “immediate action” by “our leaders,” enact the Green New Deal, ’cause “people are dying!” and the world’s gonna end in just 12 years unless Government is given absolute power over everything (https://www.ecowatch.com/youth-climate-strike-2627959531.html).

You know what scares me? These children have learned no civics at all, and precious little history. They literally do not know that our law, the Constitution, places strict limits on what any government can do. They do not know that there are limits; and because they have been terrified into believing that Doomsday really is just twelve years away, they are willing to accept a dictatorship that will be strong enough to “stop” Climate Change.

If that doesn’t scare you–well, buckaroo, it should. But it should also make you more than just a little bit irate. Those kids are ignorant and terrified because that’s how the teachers’ unions, the Democrat Party, and Hollywood want them–makes it easier, don’t you know, to manipulate them and get them to obey you. And the schools are doing it on your dime!

If these kids haven’t been set straight by the time they come of voting age–which, of course, Democrats want to lower to 16–there’s going to be the devil to pay.

There are people out there actively working to damage our country, doing it in plain sight with the active assistance and blessing of the Democrat Party. And they need to be stopped. Protect America while it’s still America.


‘Poll: One in Four Would Date a Robot’ (2016)

See the source image

Good grief…

Let’s see… how brain-dead does it get?

Ooh-ooh, I know! Brain death has occurred when somebody says he or she would “like to have a relationship” with a robot…. as long as it was good-looking!

https://leeduigon.com/2016/04/26/poll-1-in-4-would-date-a-robot/

Okay, this was a poll of a thousand people in Britain, where culture rot is somewhat more advanced than it is here in America. But what goes in Britain eventually goes in America. Before much longer we can expect to see human-robot “relationships” hailed as “a lifestyle” which the rest of us must celebrate or else be branded as biggits and Haters.

Any word on when we’re going to wake from this nightmare?


Lower the Voting Age to 16?

See the source image

Generally I try to avoid discussing any politics on Sunday. I try to follow the example of Judas the Maccabee who, although he was fighting for his nation’s life, still wouldn’t fight on the Sabbath except in self-defense.

I’ll make this brief. I mention it because it just might be one of those things they put over on us while we’re looking the other way and then, when it’s too late, we wonder how they did it.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (Far Left-California) says she wants to see the voting age lowered to 16 (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6810889/Pelosi-wants-voting-age-lowered-16-capture-kids-high-school.html). She tried to insert the measure into an “anti-corruption bill”–the hypocrisy could actually suffocate you–but couldn’t quite manage it.

In one of those rare moments when a Democrat accidentally says something that is true, Pelosi explained why she wants to do this:

“It’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school.”

“Capture”? Did she say “capture”? Well, public education has already done that!

There is more that needs to be said about this republic-killing proposal, but I’ll save it for tomorrow.


Holy Moley, Look What I Found!

Gov. Northam wants to kill ’em after they’re born. That’d be fourth trimester, wouldn’t it?

Six years ago–count ’em: six–the Media Research Council as a stunt, a hoax, a gag, asked college students if they supported abortions in the fourth trimester. Of course a lot of them didn’t know what a “trimester” was: maybe a new part of the body. As for the rest, a majority said “yes.”

https://leeduigon.com/2013/07/26/your-college-tuition-dollars-at-work/

And now, in 2019, we’ve got Democrat states competing with each other to see which one can allow the latest abortions. New York’s ahead: they’ll let you womens-health the baby as he’s coming out of the womb. Virginia did try to one-up New York on that, but it wouldn’t fly.

Out-and-out infanticide is no longer the stuff of dystopian science fiction. Brought to you by liberals, progressives, anti-human humanists–in short, the Democrat Party.


‘A Really Lousy Vision for America’ (2014)

See the source image

You don’t need Elm Street to have a nightmare.

It’s been five years since I posted this, but Democrats still think Job One for government is to control everyone’s behavior.

https://leeduigon.com/2014/09/26/a-really-lousy-vision-for-america/

At least Plato, when he was hallucinating about his superstate (The Republic), had the grace not to make his all-powerful philosopher-kings idiots and ignoramuses. Why would we, even for a matter of seconds, even think about giving more power to those jidrools in Washington?

We do have a new president, thank God, but a lot of those who were in power five years ago are still there today, still doing their level best to wreck the country–and who knows what they might not do, to get back the White House?

Please don’t let them do it!


Church of Norway ‘Apologizes’ for Having Been Pro-Life

See the source image

It looks nice, but looks aren’t everything.

And another “church” bites the dust…

The Bishops of the Church of Norway–70% of the people in Norway belong to that church–have issued a statement apologizing for having been pro-life (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/church-of-norway-apologizes-for-previous-pro-life-stance-says-abortion-promotes-women-safety). No, it’s not a satire. They really did it.

Yup, the bishops regret ever having opposed abortion and are now for it–because abortion, they say, is necessary for “women’s health, safety, and security.” There’s that “women’s health” thing again. For good measure, they have added another “We are sorry” for not having given sufficient support to all the rest of feminism.

They’re going to be even sorrier when Christ returns to judge the quick and the dead.

But apostate churches, churches that go along to get along, churches that covet the approval of a fallen world–these have always been with us. The true Church is Christ’s people, in all denominations, who are faithful to Him and keep His testimony.

That is the Church that will endure.


Tomorrow! Teens to March for ‘Climate Justice’

See the source image

There must be something more shameful than allowing children to lecture adults, but I’m sure I can’t imagine what it is.

Quick! How many nanoseconds will it take you to think of a better idea than leaving huge public policy decisions up to teenagers?

If all goes well for Far Left Crazy–sometimes it just sort of fizzles out–tomorrow will see kazillions of teenagers all over America walk out of school to demand “climate justice,” whatever the deuce that is, as part of a world-wide Youth Climate Strike (https://www.ecowatch.com/youth-climate-strike-2627959531.html). Oh, well, if I’d had a chance to get applauded for walking out of school, I’d have done it, too.

Says a 13-year-old “organizer” of the event, “People are dying right now, and we need to #ActOnClimate!”, hashtags and all. *Sigh* A 15-year-old demands “immediate action” by the government: “We need a Green New Deal!” Let’s see what he says if they really get the Green New Deal and they tell him he can never have a car.

This incredible spontaneous movement by children is “supported by environmental groups” with cool names like “Extinction Rebellion.” We are asked to believe that no adults, motivated by any wacko political agenda, put the kids up to this. And if you believe that…

This is the culmination of years of work by public “educators” to reduce whole generations to slavish obedience to whatever the government and Science spoon-feed them in the classroom, on the TV nooze, and in superhero movies. This is babble for the rabble. The massive ignorance needed to fuel such a movement staggers the mind. All they know is that the world is gonna end in just 12 years and everybody’s gonna die unless the devouring state is given absolute power over everyone and everything.

And we paid for it! We paid for the club that’s going to come down on our heads.

For how much longer do they get to abuse us before we shut off the flow of the money?


My Newswithviews Column, March 14 (‘Lights Out–for Socialism’)

See the source image

Well, okay, there’s still some electricity in Caracas–but only enough to keep the finest restaurants open to their richest and most powerful customers. Somehow socialism always looks like that.

Here in America, we have our own socialist parasites to contend with.

https://newswithviews.com/lights-out-for-socialism/

But there’s hope. Contrary to what we’ve been hearing 24/7/365 from the nooze media, Hollywood, the public schools, and the fat-heads of the academic world, Christianity is not dying out. It’s getting stronger.

Bad, bad news for the Climate Cult…
