Crucify Them! Burn Them!

Posted in Politics, Religion, Society on April 2nd, 2015

Liberals and Progressives just love to preach about the absolute need for tolerance. Yet, America’s ranting and raving domestic enemies neither show any understanding of that term or exhibit it towards those who fail to live up to every single argument of their doctrine and dogma.

Liberal "Tolerance" equals persecution of the unorthodox
Crucify Them!

Tolerance is the ability or willingness to allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with, with forbearance. What the Liberals and Progressives seek is endorsement, aid, and normalization of certain things that they have decided are protected traits. They do not seek any form of forbearance; they seek overt and explicit approval of that which normative, American society does not necessarily agree with.

Burn them at the stake for tolerance!
Burn The Heathens, Heretics, and Apostates!

And, as is to be expected, the “tolerance” of our domestic enemies does not extend to “heathens,” “heretics,” or, most especially, “apostates.” The latter bears the worst persecution but Liberals and Progressives demand that all of them profess their auto-da-fé before being nailed to the cross or burned at the stake…All in the name of fostering tolerance of course.

To borrow the catchphrase of their token, let me be clear – there is little if any difference between the Liberals and Progressives within America’s borders and ISIS, the Taliban, or Boko Haram. They may differ in exact beliefs and use somewhat different specific methods but they share a common level and extent of extremism and orthodoxy. When it comes down to it, there’s not a lot of difference between a knife, an AK-47, or an IED and paper terrorism and lawfare. In all cases it is the attempt to destroy those who beliefs are not deemed allowable.

Coal Black

Posted in Movies, Society on March 14th, 2015

Here’s a cartoon that you’ve most likely never seen – Warner Brothers’ 1943 Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs.

Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs

The reason you’ve probably never heard of, much less seen, this cartoon is because it’s one of the Censored Eleven. It’s one of eleven Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons which United Artists has banned from syndication or distribution since 1968.

Well, I say to enjoy the cartoon and, if it’s offensive to certain sorts, that’s just a bit of extra spice to the enjoyment.

Unfit For Freedom

Posted in Politics, Society on January 19th, 2015

Much like Truth enslaves more than it frees, Wisdom often brings discomfort rather than peace of mind. This is because much wisdom is unpleasant, especially when it deals with the nature of people.

A case in point where wisdom brings pain instead pleasure…

People unfit for freedom — who cannot do much with it – are hungry for power. The desire for freedom is an attribute of a “have” type of self. It says: leave me alone and I shall grow, learn, and realize my capacities. The desire for power is basically an attribute of a “have not” type of self.

— Eric Hoffer
Working and Thinking on the Waterfront (1969)

Whether he meant to or not, Eric Hoffer aptly summed up the pathology – or, at least, one of the pathologies – of entire cultural demographic in America with this one statement.

And yes! While there are many of all “races” who are to varying degrees unfit for freedom, I am specifically writing of the “Black Community.” They have over the last century and a half proven themselves to be woefully and dangerously unfit for the freedom that they were given.

Of course, not all representatives of Homo sapiens afer in the US are part of the “Black Community.” Many have rejected all or part of that particular culture and assimilated in that of America. That has to be taken into account whenever one speaks in a general manner about the Blacks.

So we are left with two distinct Black populations: Americans who happen to be Black, and the “Black Community.” The latter populace is, by and large, unfit for freedom – especially unrestricted freedom equal to that of the actual citizenry of America.

But sadly, therein lies the rub. Liberty is a basic, natural right and, as such, doesn’t need to be earned. Hence, we cannot rightfully return the “Black Community” to slavery, even if doing so would greatly benefit America and in no small measure materially and existentially benefit those Blacks who were returned to chains.
