Flash! The Eclipse was… Racist?

Image result for images of racist eclipse path of totality

I thought this was a joke when I heard it on the radio today, but I should’ve known better.

Today’s solar eclipse was… well, racist or something, according to a professor (what else?) at the Brooklyn Law School. Snopes.com rushed in to defend her (http://www.snopes.com/eclipse-racist/), pointing out that she never actually used the word “racist” in her essay (published in The Atlantic). The lefties at Snopes chided us dumb conservatives for not being able to understand such a clever and witty bit of intellectual drivel.

What she did say about the eclipse was that “along most of its path, there are almost no black people.” Huh? Why would you even bring that up? What possible significance could it have for anybody but a twit?

Would you say our intrallecturals are obsessed by race?

And people pay damned good money to have their sons and daughters “educated” by these dingbats.


They Might Be Nazis

So who are the real brownshirts?

Oh, that’s easy! “Antifa” are the real brownshirts. They’re the ones who assert the right to physically attack anyone they think is a “fascist”–which would be pretty much anybody.

The other day in Sheridan, Colorado, a man was peacefully getting out of his car at a steak sandwich place when a wacko “antifa” storm trooper attacked him with a knife, screaming “You’re one of those neo-Nazis, aren’tcha?” The victim was stabbed in the hand before he could get back into the car and close the door. (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/08/21/antifa-stabs-innocent-man-over-neo-nazi-haircut/) He thinks it must have been his haircut that set the leftid loony off.

No, sir, it wasn’t your haircut. It was this person’s psychotic ideology and its enabling by the media and the Democrat Party that set him off. He knows Soros and Obama and Hillary and MSNBC and CNN, et al, are in his corner.

Again I ask–why do we permit this?


Hilllary’s ‘Devotions’: Plagiarized

Image result for images of crooked hillary

Lest there be confusion, this is the same Hillary Clinton who was Planned Parenthood’s “Champion” of abortion and who said, last year, that the core beliefs of “religions”–that is, Christianity–“have got to change” to accommodate and “affirm” abortion and public sodomy.

That Hillary is the subject of a recent book, Strong for a Moment Like This: The Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton, by a Rev. Shillady–relish the irony of that name–the Clinton family pastor–more irony. With the thinly veiled likening of Hillary to Queen Esther, we go beyond irony into uncharted, murky waters of I don’t know what. What lies beyond irony?

The news turns out to be what we’d expect. Right smack-dab in the middle of the book is a prayer written not by Mr. Shillady–who named this guy? Charles Dickens?–but by someone else who was not given credit for it (http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_HILLARY_CLINTON_PASTOR_PLAGIARISM?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2017-08-15-10-07-55). Usually we call that plagiarism. But as any liberal would, Mr. Shillady says it was only a mistake, nobody could have been as surprised as he was when he found out the prayer had actually been written by another man, and he’ll give the guy due credit in subsequent editions and everything’ll be just hunky-dory.

It’s raining like mad and this is what I’m reading about instead of working on my own book. I have bypassed the truly disastrous news of the day in favor of this wee tidbit of cultural decay.

I suppose we expect our politicians to be hypocrites, especially if their last name happens to be Clinton. But this is a bit thick even for Hillary. I mean, really–plagiarizing a prayer?

And we’re supposed to be sorry that she’s not our president. The nooze media all tell us so.


Wedlock, Schmedlock

One of the things that most troubles me about this age is the ease with which people of my age, or only slightly less, abandon truths and standards that they were brought up with. They don’t hang on to them at all.

I think I must have mentioned this before, but it is to the point and I’ll never forget this incident. The young amoral couple in the next apartment, the woman not yet divorced from her current husband, succeeded in conceiving an out-of-wedlock child. To celebrate, they threw a party on the lawn. The whole neighborhood turned out–all these people old enough to know that you don’t shack up with some jidrool before you even file for a divorce from the other monkey, let alone produce out-of-wedlock children by some guy who already has a kid somewhere California–a kid, but no wife.

This was not a thing to celebrate. People in their fifties and sixties ought to know that. But there they were.

Then another neighbor had an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, and they threw her baby shower at the Baptist church. I thought Baptists knew it was wrong to beget children outside of marriage. Did God change His mind about that, or did the Baptists just forget?

What does it take to swing people around 180 degrees from their moral standards?

Not much, I guess.


Blaming God

Image result for images of adam blaming eve

The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat…   Genesis 3:12

“Y’see, Lord,” said Adam, “it’s really your fault that we broke your commandment and ate the forbidden fruit. I only did it because the woman that you gave me, she told me to do it! If you hadn’t put this woman in the garden with me–well, not this particular woman!–I never would’ve disobeyed you.” (Eve, at least, didn’t blame God as Adam did. She just blamed the Serpent.)

We hear this argument a lot, especially from liberal Christians who crave the secular world’s approval. We would think it strange if a car thief said, “All right, I’m a thief–so what? That’s how God made me! And Jesus loves me just the way I am! In fact, stealing cars isn’t even really a sin. It’s just the way I live my life. And I live a thief’s life because that’s my truth, that’s the life that God intended for me. So if I steal your car, don’t blame me, blame Him.”

We have not yet reached the stage of moral degeneration where we’ll accept this line of booshwa from a thief. But for every conceivable variety of sexual sin, it sells and a lot of us are buying.

I mean, really…

“Y’know what, Adam,” said the Lord, “I made a mistake! Yup, I see that now. Thank you for pointing out my error to me. It’s all my fault. Not yours, not Eve’s, not even the Serpent’s–gosh, I made a mess of things!”

But that’s not our theology–I hope.


‘Burning Man’ Pagan Fest Expects to Draw 70,000

Image result for images of burning man

It’s time again for the annual “Burning Man” festival of “radical inclusion,” whatever that is, out in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert; and this year organizers are expecting to draw at least 70,000 paying participants (http://www.sfgate.com/burningman/article/celebrities-and-tech-execs-going-to-burning-man-11742825.php), including celebrities and hi-tech corporate movers and shakers.

The highlight of the festival is the burning of a wooden human effigy. Anybody ever see The Wicker Man? Same thing, except in the movie they burn it with a live person and live animals inside it, as a sacrifice to pagan false gods. Julius Caesar had a major beef with the Gauls over this, and devoted a lot of work to stamping out this evil practice.

Now it’s where celebs and millionaires go to practice radical inclusion. Low-end tickets cost $425 each.

Would you believe The Burning Man got its start in San Francisco? Okay, I hear you saying “Where else?”

This year some of the hippier types are complaining that capitalism is “ruining Burning Man’s original spirit.” Maybe capitalism is one of those things you exclude when you’re doing radical inclusion.

I’d like to know how many liberal churchmen attend this jamboree. You know–the kind in pink or lavender shirts who perform same-sex pseudomarriages.

Anyhow, that’s the state of our culture. Burning Man is no big thing in itself, but all those little things add up into a burden that will one day crush us.

Because when you kill the culture, the culture’s gonna kill you back.

 


A Crowning Idiocy

Image result for images of dunkirk evacuation

So the big movie this summer, so far, is Dunkirk–the story of how almost 400,000 defeated Allied soldiers were evacuated from beaches on the English Channel, by small boats, yachts, fishing boats, and every other kind of vessel you can name, rather than let them be killed or captured by the Germans.

To put it bluntly: If those men are left on the beach, the Nazis win World War II.

And if they had been lost there, a feminist jidrool would not be writing reviews complaining about what a bad movie Dunkirk is because there are too many men acting like men in it.

Mehera Bonner, whoever she is (http://www.marieclaire.com/celebrity/news/a28515/dunkirk-movie-review/), calls the film a “directorial gift to men,” complains about it being “so clearly designed for men to man-out over,” and finds it “an excuse for men to celebrate maleness.” Like, dude! Pride is for gays and lesbians and trans people, ya know!

I don’t think she likes men much, do you?

Maybe if they had filled the  boats with wise Latinas and trans wimmin waving “Hillary for President” banners, Ms. Bonner would have liked the movie better. That damned history! Telling us that those were all men at Dunkirk, almost all of them white… It shouldn’t be telling us things like that! That story should have been retold, this time to conform with contemporary leftid ideology! With Donald Trump as Hitler, and Rosie O’Donnell instead of Churchill, and Bruce “Call me Caitlyn” Jenner in the White House.

Well, this is what all those men fought and died to protect. Or rather, it’s what they wound up protecting, through no fault of their own.

 


Lib Cafe Charges 18% ‘Man Tax’

Image result for images of check your privilege

And Australia is now making its move in the ongoing Ninnie Derby, coming on fast!

See if you can follow this chain of reasoning.

*The BBC publishes a list of its top salaries, and only one person on it is a woman. PM Theresa May is dismayed.

*In Melbourne, Australia, in response to the “gender gap” at the BBC, which is on the opposite side of the world from Melbourne, a “vegan cafe” called Handsome Her will now charge all male patrons–if they have any–an 18% “man tax,” plus they will always seat women first. This, babbles the owner, is a way of “making men stop and question their privilege.” (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4176712/men-tax-pay-more-melbourne-cafe/)

Gee, it sure looks to me like the ones with the “privilege” are those who get coddled and praised and allowed to piss all over whoever they decide has been “oppressing” them:  ordinary white men have the privilege of being blamed for everything, paying for everything, and being hated for everything.

But then what kind of hop-toad is going to go into a vegan cafe in the first place?

Is there a technical term for a man who takes pleasure in getting abused by lesbians? (And don’t say “Yeah–a Democrat!”)


UK to Ban ‘Gender Stereotyping’ in Advertisements

Image result for images of man tinkering with car

Totally forbidden gender stereotype!

You’d think there were no real problems to be dealt with anymore, the way governments keep zeroing in on bulls*** like this.

In the United Kingdom, the government’s Advertising Standard Authority has acted to prohibit “gender stereotyping” in ads… because it “might be harmful to people” (http://www.mrctv.org/blog/uk-ban-ads-promote-gender-stereotypes).

How could it be harmful? It could “lead to unequal gender outcomes–” What? what the blazes are they talking about?–“in public and private aspects of people’s lives.” Which is silly, isn’t it, because if the government’s going to step in and regulate some “private aspect” if your life, it isn’t private anymore, is it?

What exactly is a “gender stereotype”? Search me. Any acknowledgement that there are men and women and that they aren’t exactly the same, aren’t interchangeable… but how, then, do you go about creating ads in which “gender stereotypes” do not appear? Sure, you can show people playing bridge, or some other activity in which “gender” is irrelevant. But, see, if you were to show a woman sitting at a sewing machine–well, that would be unforgivable! From now on, you can only show men using sewing machines. Oops–just created a new gender stereotype.

Do they have nothing more serious with which to occupy their time?

We don’t have a bunch of commissars in charge of advertising in our country–not yet we don’t. But even these dorks in Britain could surely find something more important to do, if they really put their minds to it: presuming they have minds. How about coming down on blatantly false advertising, eh?

But no–these are the whoopee crowd, our betters, the enlightened ones: and by thunder, they’re going to tell us what to say and what to think, and they are going to re-mold our culture in their own little know-it-all hands and bring forth Social Justice if it kills us…

As C.S. Lewis once pointed out, the robber will reach a point where he’s satiated; but the self-righteous do-gooder will never reach that point, will never have enough of meddling in other people’s lives. And if his ministrations are actually killing them, he will be quite unaware of it.

 

 

 


‘Universal Basic Income’–Another Ridiculously Bad Idea

Image result for images of onslow watching tv

Why is is that the big shots in the tech world are such hopeless dunderheads outside of their own narrow field? And why in the world does anybody listen to them?

The Facebook wallah last week gave the commencement speech at the Harvard Dolt Factory, and advocated “universal basic income” (http://money.cnn.com/2017/05/26/news/economy/mark-zuckerberg-universal-basic-income/index.html)–that is, the government gives you a paycheck whether you’re working or not.

Oh, we just gotta do it! After all, robotics and Artificial (ahem!) Intelligence and self-driving cars are going to make us poor dumb humans obsolete and cause the loss of “tens of millions of jobs.” Therefore we all need checks from the government. And please don’t be so stupid as not to know how the government will raise the money for those checks.

And also we gotta Save The Planet from Climbit Change, even though it’s a big fat hoax.

At the risk of sounding simple-minded, where does it say we have to go whole-hog for robotics and Artificial Intelligence and put all these people out of work? Have we suddenly lost our free will? Just because we can do something, does that mean we must do it? Man, that’s way too Jurassic Park for me!

I know the world’s  big brains and bigger mouths all think you can abuse the culture all you like and nothing bad will happen. That’s why none of them have even for a moment considered that doling out a “universal basic income” might have disastrous effects upon the character of a nation.

How hard do you want to keep working so the jidrool next door can sit home and play video games all day?

How hard will anybody try to excel, when it will always be possible to live in reasonably comfortable circumstances without lifting a finger?

Did I mention the speaker also proposed to “modernize democracy so that everyone can vote on-line”? Another great idea. Bet he’s got a million of ’em.

Oh, well. Why even have free will, if we’re not going to use it?

Do you see where this is going?
