Suicide In America

Suicide Of The WestSuicide In America

Suicide in America and by America is on the rise and it’s being assisted by Islam and using Liberals and Progressives as weapon. And yes, it will be our domestic enemies, the Liberals and Progressives who are our proximate cause of death. Islam and various other enemy groups will just fight over our nation’s carcass.

Face facts; how can it be viewed any other way after a crazed Muslim terrorist – one who had been previous investigated as a terrorist twice by Obama’s FBI – decided to adhere to the Qur’an and launch a terrorist attack upon a gay bar in Orlando, FL, butchering dozens and wounding dozens more and the Left blamed:

  • Firearms
  • Christianity
  • Generalized and Unspecific Homophobia

They won’t even mention Islam or Muslims except to: say that it’s they’re no way to blame for terrorism; must be protected, no matter what, from anything and everything; and that Muslims are horribly oppressed by the American people.

This is to be expected. Liberals and Progressives are dealing with the intersectionality of otherness. Since both Muslims and Queers are considered sufficiently other to gain the Left’s loyalty and special protections, they were suddenly placed in the awkward and conflicted position of having to on the fly determine a hierarchy of otherness and privilege.

Rather than do that they chose to cast blame on anything and everything that is generally considered normal and normative by Americans and tried their best to convince themselves that there is equivalency between not wanting to bake a cake for a queer wedding and gunning down a club full of queers.

Of course, one could pick any one of many, many other incidents involving interactions between the Liberals’ and Progressives’ individuals or groups possessing specially protected traits and find similar responses, especially when two or more such groups are in conflict.

Hence, America’s suicide will be by Liberalism; it’s the gun our nation has placed in its mouth. Islam is merely the current finger cocking the hammer.

A Democrat Once Said…

Posted in Politics, Religion on May 10th, 2016

I know it’s hard to believe, but a Democrat – a quite progressive one for the time – once said this:

At the heart of that Western freedom and democracy is the belief that the individual man, the child of God, is the touchstone of value, and all society, groups, the state, exist for his benefit. Therefore the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings must be the supreme goal and the abiding practice of any Western society.

— Robert F. Kennedy

Yes, Robert Kennedy said this during his 1966 address to the students and faculty of he University of Capetown, South Africa. Of course, this was just a few weeks shy of 50 years ago and in the intervening decades the Democrats and their Liberal and Progressive adherents have degenerated to the point where the very mention of God or religion – except to deny the former and lambast the latter – is anathema to them.

No, no longer could or would a Democrat describe Man as the child of God.

So too during the Left’s fall from vestiges of Americanism it once had, did they decide to revile most forms of mention of the enlargement of liberty for individual human beings, demanding instead a collective ethical consciousness that places non-sexual individual liberty subservient to both the State and the collective.

And Happy Holi

Posted in Religion, Society on March 25th, 2016

As I wouldn’t want to be called “Eurocentric” or anything like that, I’d like to wish you all a slightly belated Happy Holi as well as Ēostre. Got to keep up with the multicultural ethic, after all.

And Happy Holi As Well

OK, OK! All sarcasm aside, I just plain forgot that yesterday was technically Holi. My wives and I actually celebrate this Hindu holiday but, like many such things in the States, when the holiday falls on a weekday the big celebrations and ceremonies are normally held on the nearest weekend. Hence, Sunday we’ll be having fun and getting colorful at this year’s Rangwali Holi.

And hey! Holi’s even more colorful than Ēostre.
