Germany’s Der Spiegel Say Political Correctness Has backfired On America

January 6, 2017

from Der Spiegel International

It’s a Friday afternoon in Oberlin, Ohio, around one month before the country heads to the polls to elect Donald Trump as its next president. The final classes and lectures of the week have just ended, and a young woman comes walking by in bare feet with a hula hoop gyrating around her waist while others are performing what seems to be a rhythmic dance to the African music that’s playing. Two black students are rapping.

It’s the kind of scene that could easily play out on a beach full of backpack tourists, but this is unfolding at one of the country’s most expensive universities.

Many female students here have dyed their hair green or blue, they have piercings and their fashion sense seems inspired by “Girls” creator and millennial star Lena Dunham, who, of course, also studied here.

In such a setting, it seems almost inconceivable that this country could go on to elect Donald Trump as its president only a few weeks later. Yet pro-Trump country is just a few miles away. Oberlin is located in Ohio, one of the swing states that made Trump’s election possible. Drive five miles down College Road toward town, and you start seeing blue “Trump Pence 2016” signs on people’s lawns.

Places like Oberlin are the breeding grounds of the leftist elite Trump’s people spoke so disparagingly of during the election campaign.

Only a few months earlier, a handful of students claimed they had been traumatized after someone used chalk to scrawl “Trump 2016” on the walls of buildings and on sidewalks at Oberlin and at other liberal universities. It triggered protests on some campuses, with students demanding “safe space” where they would be spared from hearing or seeing the name of this “fascist, racist candidate.”

In the months prior to the election, “safe spaces” had been one of the most widely discussed terms at Oberlin. The concept has its roots in feminism and describes a physically and intellectually sheltered space that protects one from potentially insulting, injurious or traumatizing ideas or comments — a place, in short, that protects one from the world. When conservative philosopher and feminism critic Christina Hoff Sommers was scheduled to give a speech at Oberlin last year, some students did not approve and claimed that Sommer’s views on feminism represented “microaggressions.”

When Sommers appeared anyway, leading some Oberlin students to create a “safe space” during the speech where, as one professor reported, “New Age music” was played to calm their nerves and ease their trauma. They could also “get massages and console themselves with stuffed animals.”

Astronomers reveal fast FRBs have been discovered coming from the same mystery cosmic source

January 6, 2017

FRBs are mystery radio bursts from deep space that last for just a few milliseconds.

from International Business TimesInternational Business Times

Six additional repeating fast radio bursts have been discovered coming the same unknown source in space. The FRBs came from the same region beyond the Milky Way where 10 bursts had previously been detected – and their discovery should give a greater insight into what caused them.

FRBs are radio signals from deep space that last just a few milliseconds. The first FRB was detected in 2001 and since then over a dozen have been found in telescope data. However, these all appeared to be one-off events, with no two bursts coming from the same location. This means follow-up observations were not possible, keeping their source a mystery.

Current theories as to their cause involve a cataclysmic event like a neutron star collapsing into a black hole or a supernova. Another option is they are coming from a young, highly magnetised, extragalactic neutron star.

In March, scientists announced the discovery of the first repeating FRBs. Ten bursts were recorded coming from the same direction as FRB 121102 – a spot in space far beyond the Milky Way.

Their findings, published in the journal Nature, showed the bursts had the same dispersion measurements as the original FRB, indicating the source must have survived whatever event produced the FRB in the first place. As a result, the bursts cannot be being produced by a one-off event. Read more >>>

How The Elites Exempt Themselves From The Consequences Of Their Sanctimonious, Ideologically Driven Agendas

January 3, 2017

I’ve been saying it for years, not others are saying the same thing too, if the elites had to live in the real world with the rest of us, they would soon abandon their authoritarian ‘liberal’ agendas when they came up against the effects of idiotic notions such as ‘flooding a developed nation with uneducated, semi – literate, unskilled religious fanatics benefits the economy and enriches the culture’, or, ‘all human beings can be made equal if governments create enought new laws, or, ‘the right of free speech and free expression should only be avalable to those whose sentiments are approved on by government.’

Here’s a point of view on the wider issues surrounding the topic of elitist authoritarianism by the extellent Americanlibertarian writer Victor Davis Hanson:

It’s Still a Mad, Mad California

Coastal elites set rules for others, exempt themselves, and tolerate rampant lawlessness from illegal aliens. One reason for the emergence of outsider Donald Trump is the old outrage that elites seldom experience the consequences of their own ideologically driven agendas.

Hypocrisy, when coupled with sanctimoniousness, grates people like few other human transgressions: Barack Obama opposing charter schools for the inner city as he puts his own children in Washington’s toniest prep schools, or Bay Area greens suing to stop contracted irrigation water from Sierra reservoirs, even as they count on the Yosemite’s Hetch Hetchy project to deliver crystal-clear mountain water to their San Francisco taps.

The American progressive elite relies on its influence, education, money, and cultural privilege to exempt itself from the bad schools, unassimilated immigrant communities, dangerous neighborhoods, crime waves, and general impoverishment that are so often the logical consequences of its own policies — consequences for others, that is. Abstract idealism on behalf of the distant is a powerful psychological narcotic that allows caring progressives to dull the guilt they feel about their own privilege and riches.

Nowhere is this paradox truer than in California, a dysfunctional natural paradise in which a group of coastal and governing magnificoes virtue-signal from the world’s most exclusive and beautiful enclaves. The state is currently experiencing another perfect storm of increased crime, decreased incarceration, still ongoing illegal immigration, and record poverty.

Racist Professor Calls For “White Genocide,” Blames ‘The Right’ For Misinterpreting His Tweets

December 27, 2016

from Zero Hedge

A Drexel University Political Science professor – who has a book coming out in February – and is a communist, graced the world with his Christmas wish to see an entire race of human beings exterminated. You know, like Hitler.

c0kevonucaa8k7-e1482794660170

Hilarious, right? Especially if you replace the word “white” with any other race. This warm holiday sentiment comes from the mind of George Ciccariello-Maher, a cultishly liberal academic who’s never existed outside of a university environment, having previously corrupted young minds at U.C. Berkeley and the Venezuelan School of Planning in Caracas. Ciccariello then doubles down on his Christmas Eve banter:

1482745932036

To review, this is what he’s talking about:

1482746023031

Nice guy. Now, in an attempt to backpedal during an Eichenwaldian moment of clarity liberals get after haphazardly revealing they’re fucking idiots underneath that academic exterior, Ciccariello is lashing out by blaming everyone who was offended for not having “bothered to do their research” in preparation for his satirical tweets.

drexelsss

Drexel university has issued a statement:

responsedrexel

No word on which wrist Drexel plans to slap, but 4chan anon knows what’s up:

drexelres

People like Ciccariello-Maher exist to indoctrinate adult children into a reactionary class of morons who hear a trigger word and start regurgitating information without even moderate possession of the facts. These perpetual winners are are easily manipulated by identity politics which “intellectual” losers like Ciccariello capitalize on. While undeniably atrocious, slavery in America was conducted almost entirely by rich southern democrats – a small percentage of Americans, in the 1800’s. It has been a fucked up institution for thousands of years, and is still happening today in many parts of the world. It’s also been abolished in the USA for over 130 years, and the playing field has been legally leveled for over half a century despite structural racism legislated into society. There are of course vestiges of slavery which affect minorities to this day, none of which should be used as a tool for manipulation to generate guilt or resent – or as a reason to exterminate white people. I wonder if Ciccariello-Maher would issue the same call to genocide for all brown people, since slavery is alive and well in places like Saudi Arabia?

As long as angry radicalized career academics continue peddling white guilt to impressionable snowflakes – many of whom entered into lifelong debt to fund their own brainwashing, untold millions of basement-dwelling failures to launch will have a perpetual villain to blame for their shitty lives. That is, until the last white person has been exterminated.

Flankspeed60 Dec 27, 2016 10:11 AM

The university system is something akin to festering ebola camps. As parents, why would we shove our kids into them for four years and seriously believe they could emerge without being infected? Until we learn how to vaccinate, or better yet, purge this filth from our education system, our children will become carriers of this disease and continue to infect every institution they touch. Our country can never be at peace with itself until we finally remove this scourge.

FreedomGuy Reaper Dec 27, 2016 9:35 AM

I have asserted for several years that the Left is a self-loathing death cult. Whether it is enviro’ whose core assertion is that there are too many people in the world, abortion or these genius Caucasian self-loathing beta males, the end of all things is autocracy and death.

I wonder which other culture he considers superior?

When these people run into real academics they wither under intellectual fire. That’s the moment they retreat to the insults and being offended.

He’s mad about his hyphenated name, and as for genocide my suggestion is that we start with the ones calling for it.

FreedomGuy koan Dec 27, 2016 9:41 AM

Good point, koan. Morons like this guy actually validate white supremacists. He and those like him say there IS something to race which makes the KKK, Antisemites and others correct. Then the debate simply devolves to who should dominate. This is why the thoroughly racist Left causes the rise of a similar but opposite force in National Socialists and similar groups…who actually do not argue about autocratic governments, either.

This is what passes for intellect at the modern leftist schools of indoctrination. We will soon have to start deprogramming organizations similar to the old Moonies.

It’s weird how everyone is suddenly “just joking.”

You know, only after going this far.  Not after years of bashing people they disagreed with, mind.  Just after going completely bonkers and getting called out on it.

In two weeks, when he makes a similar slip, wanna bet he’s “just joking” then too?

FreedomGuy LyLo Dec 27, 2016 9:43 AM

When you “joke” you include some clue to indicate it is sarcasm, humor or irony. He does not do this. He is serious and just got caught so he goes Clintonesque with the retraction-nonretraction.

Haiti killed the white folks – how did that turn out for Haiti?

Why don’t these professors ever teach that the first slave owner on US soil was a black man who sued in 1655 to legalize slavery?  If not for Angolan and former indentured servant Anthony Johnson, slavery would never have existed on US soil.  Slavery was a way of life in Africa and Johnson wanted it legalized here.

Oh you mean the hard science professors that agree with the global warming/climate change conspiracy? Try again. All college education is useless. I went to college and did very well, but that time and money would have been better spent elsewhere. The piece of paper did open a few doors for interviews and promotions, but I am not convinced they would have not still occurred without that piece of paper of 4 more years of relevant experience and knowledge.

Jews don’t consider themselves white. They consider themselves a separate and better race. All other races are considered cattle according to them. The Jewish Bolsheviks murdered 20 to 60 million Russians, most of them Christians, and still deny they did it.

FreedomGuy snodgrass Dec 27, 2016 9:56 AM

So you agree with this professor on the whole race thing? Do you have a poll from Jews that shows this? That kosher baker down the street is in on this?

So you, the professor and your versions of the Jews all agree on the core race issues. It is just a matter of who is really the master race or at least who should rule, right? If what you say is true then the Jewish conspiracy thing makes total sense and they are doing exactly what they should do for survival, right?

After we do this can we get down to religion, then Catholic versus Protestant, and maybe Anglicans versus Purtians? We can do this all over again! It will be great!

Maybe you should sign up for classes at Drexel. Your kind of genius is what they are looking for.

Cloud9.5 snodgrass Dec 27, 2016 9:28 AM

Poor dumb bastard.  When he looks in the mirror he sees a Jew.  When the world looks at him they see a white man.  He cannot even realize that he is calling for his own extermination.

The President Who Never Was

December 11, 2016

As I have said before, this blog is where we post items reblogged from other sites or which we might have added some of our own material to ideas first posted at other sites. The blog is not promoted and usually gets only two to three views a month. It’s main purpose is to allow our contributors to revisit certain themes.

The President Who Never Was

President-elect Donald Trump has already made President Obama irrelevant. He not only commands the media spotlight, as presidents-elect are wont to do, but in effect he governs from Trump Tower as he awaits the necessary formality of Inauguration Day. Whether it be convincing Carrier to keep its plant in Indiana or signalling a new day in Sino-American relations by talking to Taiwan’s president, the Trump era has already begun. And President Obama is not so much yesterday’s man as he is the president eagerly—and easily—forgotten.

Obama was elected in 2008 for his biography more than for his accomplishments, of which there were precious few: an elite education, some “community organizing” (whatever that is), a stint in the state legislature, and a cup of coffee in the U.S. Senate. He sold the American people on a package of “hope and change” and the people bought it. Twice.

The election this year of Donald Trump is more than just buyer’s remorse—it’s a repudiation of Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” In office, his agenda was stymied by a constitutional order designed to impede radical change. The framers of the Constitution understood that time allows passions to recede so that  cooler—and, one hopes, wiser—heads prevail.

Yet Obama, the only “constitutional law professor” ever elected president, as his supporters endlessly reminded us, (though Andrew Jackson served as a judge of the Tennessee Supreme Court before becoming president and William Howard Taft was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court after his presidency) was repeatedly frustrated and apparently bewildered by the Constitution’s checks and balances.

When the system is running right, change comes slowly and even then only by building a consensus among the American people. Education and persuasion become fundamental to the art of politics. But this didn’t suit Obama or the Democrats—all supporters of the progressive belief in rule by experts through the administrative state and disdainful of the republican attachment to the idea that government must be accountable to the people. Too often, progressives see the people as ignorant, backwards, uneducated, and an impediment to their Utopian dreams. When your ideology tells you that history is advancing inexorably toward a better future you become understandably impatient with those who don’t want to hurry forward.

Obama’s signature—and only meaningful—legislative accomplishment is the government takeover of healthcare accomplished under the Affordable Care Act, known colloquially as Obamacare. Congress passed the bill without a single Republican vote through a constitutionally suspect use of a budget reconciliation procedure. And it very likely will be gone in the opening days of the Trump Administration, possibly on Inauguration Day itself.

Government-controlled healthcare has been a Leftist unicorn since the time of the New Deal. With Obama in the White House and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in control of Congress, they seized the opportunity. But Americans never supported the law and Democrats didn’t take the time to persuade them. “Take your medicine, it’s good for you,” was the prescription coming from the Democrat leadership.

Not only is Obamacare unpopular with the American people, it was based upon a series of shady deals, phony promises, and outright lies: “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it…”; “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”; “Obamacare will reduce the deficit”; “there will be no rationing”; the Cornhusker Kickback; Obamacare won’t violate the Hyde Amendment and pay for abortion or abortifacient drugs.

Obama and the Democratic Party leadership said and did everything necessary to muscle the bill through Congress—everything other than convincing Americans that the law  was necessary or wise. And early next year, with an act of Congress likely to have support from at least some Democrats, Obamacare will be repealed and will vanish like a mere breath or a passing shadow.

And so will most everything else done on Obama’s watch. Because Barack Obama saw himself and his presidency as post-Constitutional, he did not govern in co-equal partnership with Congress but chose instead to reign with pen and phone. For Obama, Congress—even when controlled by Democrats—was a nuisance and an impediment. He was always impatient with constitutional forms so he ignored them, relying instead upon executive orders, unconstitutional power grabs by the administrative state, and a pliable judiciary.

Obama’s tenure, especially after the 2010 Tea Party election, has been characterized by high profile and highly questionable executive actions that run counter to the expressed will of the people through their representatives in Congress. Among these were the infamous Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) order that undermined existing immigration law and the unconstitutional Iran deal which Obama refused to submit to the Senate because it only had 34 votes not the two-thirds required for a treaty.  Not even all Senate Democrats supported the Iran deal so, without congressional approval Obama agreed to send $150 billion of taxpayer money to Iran—the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism—and to accept their word  that they won’t pursue a nuclear weapons program. Not only is this a blatantly unconstitutional power grab that undermines national security, it amounts to paying Iran to lie to us.

But because Obama acted so often without Congress, at the stroke of the new president’s pen it can all be undone.  This is the Achilles heel of the Left’s post-constitutional will to power politics: it only works when you’re winning. When an election goes against you everything you have accomplished by force of will can be overturned by your successor. If you don’t pass a law through Congress, your successor doesn’t need to go to Congress to reverse it. More important, the reason Obama didn’t go to Congress to enact his agenda is because the American people, while personally attached to him, did not support it. As a result there will be not so much an outcry as relief when he is reversed—which brings us to this year’s election.

The stakes in this year’s election could not have been higher. Had Hillary Clinton won, she would have made permanent Obama’s radical changes. She would have done this not through Congress, but through the judiciary which she would have packed with even more doctrinaire “living constitution” Leftists who would have given their imprimatur to all of Obama’s executive overreach and the even more imperial power grabs that were certain to have accompanied Clinton. It would have rendered Congress as unnecessary as the Russian Duma. The irony is lost on the American Left, for whom Vladimir Putin has become this year’s bogeyman, that they have such similar ideas about presidential power.

But Clinton did not win the election. Donald Trump won. And Republicans maintained control of both houses of Congress and expanded their advantage in the states, now controlling 33 governorships and 67 of 98 state legislative chambers—a level of dominance not seen in nearly a century for the GOP. The challenge for Republicans will be to govern effectively and meet the needs of the people who have placed so much trust in the party. But Republicans have taken the time to educate and persuade the people upon whom they have built a surprisingly effective electoral coalition. What is more, grassroots organizations have been active at the state level on issues like abortion, criminal justice reform, and immigration.

Too often successful state laws were challenged by a hostile Obama Administration and overturned by liberal judges. With a Republican president and, one hopes, more judges devoted to the Constitution, those efforts will enjoy broader support. Trump will become president on January 20 and while the significance of that cannot be underestimated, it is more important to realize that he is the tip of the iceberg. The much larger mass of the Republican Party is below the surface—in Congress, in governors’ mansions and state legislatures, and in grassroots organizations throughout the country that have worked within the system to build consensus and pass laws. That’s the way the system is supposed to work. Republicans have done it the hard way, but it’s also the only way to build anything that lasts.

The Left, in its hurry to realize the next new thing has no patience for that. Impatient as their historicist ideology makes them, they have built their house on sand. Most of what Obama accomplished was ephemeral and will be gone before winter turns to spring. The only things that will remain are an additional $10 trillion in debt, his anti-constitutionalist judges, and a dog’s breakfast of foreign policy disasters that someone else will have to clean up.

After undoing Obama’s executive actions, Trump will enact his agenda through Congress. That will make it be more durable—and more likely to transform America. Obama might be remembered, but his political legacy will fade like memories of a summer fling. And he will become the president that never was.

Does Britain Actually Need To Trigger Article 50 – Can’t We Just Say Eff Off?

November 22, 2016

There is a lot of speculation about establishment figues, corporate business leaders, globalist politicians, academics, media luvvies, all the usual suspects in fact, including those paskudniaks Branson, Sugar, the traitor and war criminal Tony Blair, Nick Clegg, Bob Geldof who made millions out of his work for ‘charidee (which he doesn’t like to talk about, mate) and once had a hit record or something, a host of airhead actors, airhead journalists, airhead TV presenters, pervy paedophile judges and those Trotskyite shits at the BBC somehow finding a way to block Brexit (cue a replay of Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech).

It seems these all round wankers have not the slightest sense of the public mood. Do they really think they can block Brexit without their heads ending up on iron spikes outside The Palace Of Westminster.

The whole case of the global Naziism shits (see above) rests on stopping the government ‘triggering Article 50’ but is that as important as is being stated by the government / shadow government controlled propaganda machine.

Interestingly an article in Moneyweek by a person actually qualified to comment on complex International Law issues suggests the Article 50 thing is being misrepresented, all we need to do is tell the EU’s designated Brexit negotiator to fuck the fuck off. The EU man, former Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, is presented as a tough negotiator and a hard line federalist who will do everything possible to obstruct Brotain’s leaving. The reality is he’s a man who was such a successful leader that by the time he left office the little country’s two regions, French speaking Wallonia and Phlegmish speaking Flanders wanted to become separate, independent nations.

Here’s a look at the Moneyweek article, Don’t trigger Article 50 – just leave, by Ingrid Detter de Frankopan

Despite my best attempts, says professor of international law Ingrid Detter de Frankopan, everyone has been deaf to the painstakingly simple course for the United Kingdom to take: don’t trigger Article 50 at all.

Second rate lawyers are misleading everyone in the country by insisting that, in order to leave the European Union it is essential to “trigger” Article 50 in its entirety. This line has been swallowed whole by the government, the media and commentators. It is, however, absolute nonsense. Under international law and under Article 50 (1) itself, only notice to leave is necessary.

The horror that I feel about this misdirection is compounded by that the fact that if Article 50(2) is ‘triggered’ it implies that the UK government accepts that the EU will decide the conditions of UK’s withdrawal. This has serious consequences. An arbitrary two-year negotiation window; a supreme agency problem between negotiating parties (the European Commission and various powerful governments) and a ratification process that is far from certain. All the while we will be contributing approximately £40bn gross, or £20bn net, to the European project. We will be paying for them to negotiate – and once we get to the end of the timeline there will be no real incentive to reach prompt agreement, as well as no reason to be true to their negotiated position. In fact any excuse of an election, a financial crisis or a small war – could derail years and millions of man-hours of work.

The US Democrats Can Protest All They Want, Here’s Why They Lost.

November 10, 2016

The wailing and gnashing of teeth from Democratic Party supporters, ‘liberals’ (actually the most illiberal people on the planet) and ‘progressives’ (who want society to progress all the way to the ideologically driven authoritarianism of The Spanish Inquisition) has been almost deafening since the victory of Republican Donald Trump over Democrat ‘Crooked Hillary’ Clinton in the US Presidential election was announced early on Wednesday morning.

The point these wailers and gnashers of teeth are missing however is that the defeat is their own fault. They vastly overestimated their ability to manipulate the behaviour of US voters, not the party activists or committed supporters, the ones who would vote for a dog turd if it was wearing the right colour rosette, but the ordinary punters who vote for the party they think will serve their interests best.

In short the arrogance and snobbery of this self – identified elite led them to believe working class voters were stupid, sheep – like creatures who would unquestioningly follow the lead given by the academics, experts and assorted talking heads presented on television (people vastly experienced in matters concerning economic, foreign and economic policy such as Lady Gaga, Brad Pitt, Katy Perry, Jay – Z, Madonna, Lena Dunham, George Clooney and Robert De Niro) to work on reinforcing the myth that ‘The Wisdom Of Crowds’ is infallible.

They failed, they anointed candidate Hillary Clinton, a certainty for The White House according to this fabled Wisdom Of Crowds, was losing badly to a rank outsider, the 74 year old maverick socialist senator fom Vermont, Bernie Sanders who had never even run as a Democrat, preferring the designation of Independent Socialist. Obviously something had to be done, corporate profits were at stake.

The elite did what they always do, they resorted to lying, cheating and bullying.

Hillary’s party managers, the Democratic Party National Committee (DNC) suppressed voting in the primaries in Illinois,  Arizona, California, New York  and other states. Sanders supporters were deregistered and told they could not votes, votes were physically changed or were simply not counted.  In Chicago (it was recorded), hacked the computers that had no paper backup (and therefore no proof) created an environment where exit polls said Bernie had won easily yet Clinton miraculously got the most votes (?!). Discrepancies were consistently in Clinton’s favor, sometimes by as much as 33%.

All this was to push Clinton, a hugely unpopular and mistrusted figure on America as the Democrat candidate. The arrogance and delusions of superiority kicked in again, leading The Democrats to totally miscalculate the voters mood. They believed people would forget the numerous financial scandals, the allegations of treason, fraud and corruption that surrounded Clinton and the several active criminal investigations into her activities and all obediently do as the talking heads told them.

In any other year the Republican opponent Donald Trump would have been a weak candidate, but in the end the electorate did not so much vote for Trump but against the political establishment, which they felt abandoned by; brack Obama had promised Hope and change but had governed in the interests of the wealthy elite, just as his Republican predecessor had.

If the DNC had run an honest campaign, instead of collaborating with the corporate lobbyists and agents of foreign governments who had bought promises of favours and indulgences from the Clinton campaign, if instead of doing it Crooked Hillary’s way they had run an honest primaries process and pitted the principled outsider Bernie Sanders compete against a billionaire property developer (hardly a man of the people) there would very likely be a Democrat, albeit a very different kind of Democrat to the neocon warmonger Obama preparing to take over The White House.

Why Are British Horror Films Less Schlocky Than Hollywood’s Efforts

October 27, 2016

Finding an article about Christian propaganda in horror films on a Yahoo group, Seers and Seekers, made me reflect on the wide and widening differences in US and British culture.

When it comes to Christian propaganda films, most people think of the obnoxious God’s Not Dead, or Nic Cage’s get-me-out-of-IRS-debt Left Behind—criticially reviled assaults on the secular world that occasionally make a lot of money. But there’s another genre that seems to have the same proselytizing agenda that champions Christianity and demonizes all other faiths (including the faithless): horror movies.

Every year we endure more of these predictably edited, laughably plotted thrillers centered around a young girl foolishly toying with the tools of Satan (usually a Ouija Board), becoming possessed by a demon, and then being exorcised by a priest who was struggling with his faith but now sees the error of rational thinking.

It’s true that not all horror films serve as mouthpieces for Christianity—there are even a few examples that condemn church leaders—but nearly any horror film that touches on the supernatural will either condemn the faithless ( The Conjuring, The Rite ), frame non-Jesus religions as spooky (The Wicker Man, The Exorcist, Sinister ), or claim that Biblical prophecy is coming to pass (Legion, The Omen). Even slasher films with no ties to religion often dabble in moralistic tropes against drugs, premarital sex, or doing anything the least bit salacious.
You can read the whole article here (though beyond the central question it has little relevance outside the USA, but its is well written and informative).

Being British probably restricts my ability to comment on some aspects of this post because the evangelical Christian movement here is not powerful, but I do not find our horror films to project a Christian message. The most recent British horror to attain cult status, Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later warns of the dangers of placing too much faith in scientists rather than ensuring their projects are supervised. If anyone needs confirmation of that, remember that until a couple of years ago outbreaks of Ebola had infected a few dozen people then fizzled out, then something changed and we had an outbreak that infected thousands and killed hundreds in West Africa. It may have been pure coincidence of course that in the few years leading up to that outbreak a team from the United States DARPA biological warfare group had been operating in the area where the outbreak began.

Stepping daintily over Shaun Of The Dead we have to go back a long way to other classic British horror, vehicles such as Ken Russel’s The Devils or Michael Reeves Witchchfinder General depict the horrors perpetrated by religious fanaticism and mobs led by rabble rousing preachers.

I think it’s off target to describe The Wicker Man as Christian propaganda, while Police Sergeant Howie, sent to investigate reports of ritual sacrifice on Summerisle is indeed a devout Calvinist (one of the Wee Wee Frees – The Reformed Free Church of Scotland (there’s the Church of Scotland (Anglican) The Free Church Of Scotland – The Wee Frees, rather fundamentalist Calvinists, and the Reformed Free Church Of Scotland (totally unrelenting ‘thou-shalt-not-breathe-on-the-Lords-day’ Calvinists) or something like that. The point, in the context of this discussion,  is that Howie’s faith and prayers do not save him, God does not rescue him from the burning wicker cage and the final scene, as the wicker man containing Howie’s charred body collapses in flames  the screen is dominated by the setting sun, the end of a repeating cycle, the pagan message is clear (Igne natura renovatur integra).

Excluding the rather camp Hammer Horrors of the 1960s others worth remembering, such as Village Of The Damned or Day Of The Triffids are sci-fi / horror hybrids with no religious impliations.

So it seems the Christian propaganda horror genre is an American phenomenon. The answer? Lobby US producers and directors to find stories that have a decent plot and engaging characters who use intelligence and creative thinking to achieve seemingly impossible goals (remember the twelve labours of Hercules?) or escape fates worse than death, rather that trusting in faith and prayer.

America Is Lost: Rigged election, Rigged Media, Rigged Candidate says Assange

October 21, 2016

To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of Julian Assange’s death were greatly exaggerated. After his web feed was cut by staff at the Ecuadorian Embassy earlier this week Assange’s usual stream of tweets, leaks and posts was stilled. The web, being the web, went mad with conspiracy theories but Wikileaks themselves did not comment on the wilder speculation.

Well Julian is back on Hilary’s case, and this time it’s more personal than ever.

After consistently leaking damaging internal information from both the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign on an almost daily basis for months, much of which provides evidence of criminal behavior sufficient to trigger a police investigation were anybody but a member of the Washington ‘liberal’ (née neocon) elite the chief suspect, but seemingly has no impact on the Mrs Clinton’s ratings in the polls, Julian Assange has concluded that “There is no US election. There is power consolidation. Rigged primary,
rigged media and rigged ‘pied piper’ candidate drive consolidation.

Another way of looking at it is that Mrs. Clinton’s continued involvement in the election race shows that to her supporters the fact that Hillary Clinton has a vagina (allegedly) is more important that evidence of her many crimes ranging from high treason to cheating Bernie Sanders out of the nomination, this blog can’t understand why the candidate’s genitals should be a factor in the election. After all, in every election from 1988, Americans have voted to put a cunt in The White House.

It is difficult to disagree with Assange’s assessment (or ours for that matter).  That an establishment candidate, the ultimate Washington insider, running for The Democratic Party which claims it supports poor people and minorities, can still be in the race after an extended FBI investigation into a security scandal involving handling classified material on an unsecured private network that concluded multiple federal laws were clearly and intentionally broken by Mrs Clinton and her staff,  and clear evidence that the decision not to prosecute was influenced by the intervention of President Barack Hussein Obama in what amounted to a gross abuse of power, is astounding. Equally astounding is that evidence of  collusion between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department during the time Hillary Clinton was Secretary has not warranted an investigation.  Throw in evidence from WikiLeaks clearly linking the DNC to criminal efforts to incite violence at rallies, electoral fraud during the Democratic Party primaries, contravention of electoral rules in accepting donations from foreign governments, blatant media collusion, etc, etc, and it actually becomes clear that The Obama Administration and the Democratic party (heavily influenced by the Clinton’s have introduced levels of corruption normally found in third world failed states into the political system of the USA.

And, while no amount of corruption or scandal seems to sway an American electorate that is intent upon throwing the country off a cliff, Assange has promised a “surprise” for Tim Kaine and the Democrats’ “persecuted christian woman”, Donna Brazile who assumed the role of chair of the Democratic National Committee (as a thanks for helping Hillary stab Bernie Sanders in the back?) after her predecessor was made the patsy for Hillary’s email treason.Let’s hope that finally wakes up mainstream media to tell the truth about the election being rigged in favour of the Wall Street / Corporate / Military – Industrial complex candidate.

The real irony is that Hillary Clinton represents all of that which the ‘liberals’ of the ‘progressive left’ claim they hate most, yet still they support her because her vagina blinds them to the (not fit for purpose) quality of her character, just as eight years ago the colour of Obama’s skin blinded mostly the same people to the fact that he was a plant who in office would be a neocon puppet.

Thoughts On Islam For Those Who Would Appease Extremists

October 10, 2016

Winston Churchill, as an officer of the British Army in 1897 and 1898,  fought against a Pashtun tribe in the northwest frontier of British India and also at the Battle of Omdurman in Sudan. In both of those conflicts he had eye-opening encounters with Muslims. These incidents allowed his keen powers of observation and always-fluid pen to weigh in on the subject of Islamic society.

While these words were written when he was only 25-years-old (in
1899), they serve as a prophetic warning to Western civilization today.

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism (Islam) lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.”

Churchill apparently witnessed the same phenomenon in several places he visited. “The effects are apparent in many countries: improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.”

He saw the temporal and the eternal tainted by their belief system.
“A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity,” he wrote.

The second-class status of women also grated at the young officer.
“The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men,” he noted.

“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence ofthe religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.”
