SJWs always lie, always project, and are always hypocritical, including corporations April 19, 2016

If you’ve been following the ongoing (and increasingly unhinged) leftist campaign against the state of North Carolina for having the audacity to say that men pretending to be women cannot legally use women’s restrooms,  you know the SJWs (social justice warriors) have been displaying all their core characteristics to the max.  Thus we have seen leftist agitators, many of them self-proclaimed feminists, jettisoning all their previous concern about protecting women from male depredation (all the while encouraging women to behave in ways that opened them up to same) and now demanding that all restrooms in the world be opened up to a tiny percentage of dreadfully mentally-ill individuals who believe they are somehow the “wrong sex.”

Since the vast majority of these trannies are males pretending to be female (and no matter how much you cut off or have added on, BOYS, you’ll never be rid of that pesky Y chromosome), what this effort has meant, in practice, is opening up women’s restrooms to mentally ill and/or predatory men.  Not a very good combination.  Of course, there have already been scores of incidents from around the country where this lunacy has already been enacted in law, of obviously predatory men assaulting women and even young girls in their most vulnerable moments, with the assaults ranging from actual rape to “mere” intimidation, groping, self-abuse, indecent exposure, illegal photography, etc.

Such is the insanity of our times, however, that when a state tries to protect 50+% of its citizenry from such a grave threat, the effort is labeled as being motivated by nothing but hate for transgenders – who make up perhaps 0.05 – 0.10% of the population (a few hundred thousand, at most) – and has become the latest poster child of the endless war by the sexually deranged left against everyone else.

All the more sickening, however, has been the key role corporations have played in the attempt to have this legislation overturned.  Corporate pressure was the principle reason for the dramatic watering-down of similar legislation in Georgia, it might still work in North Carolina, though I am proud to see how much tar is still in those heels.  To top it all is the stinking hypocrisy of these corporations, many of whom happily do business with the most thuggish, repressive regimes in the world, but who now publicly chastise and attempt to punish fellow Americans for holding beliefs different from their own (which beliefs just happened to have been shared by almost all those now doing the persecuting themselves as recently as a year or so ago):

Whether it’s Apple opening stores in Saudi Arabia or American Airlines looking to dominate the Cuban travel market, many of the companies that have threatened to cut business ties to North Carolina over its bathroom bill are eager to do business in countries with regimes far more repressive of gays (and everyone else).

PayPal’s international headquarters are located in Singapore, where sexual contact between males is punishable by up to two years in prison, and even littering can be punished by flogging. The company has a software development center in Chennai, India, where same-sex marriage is prohibited.

Matt Sharp, legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said PayPal’s actions internationally speak louder than its words at home.

“They’ve got a political agenda that they’re trying to push in the U.S. But it definitely does not line up with what their actions are saying around the world in places like Malaysia and others,” Mr. Sharp said. [Why do corporations push an overwhelmingly leftist agenda?  Because personnel is policy, and most corporations are staffed, to a nearly uniform degree, by highly trained but unthinking monkeys from the same far-left universities.  The left managed to co-opt corporations during the 80s and 90s through the politically correct effort, and it is now paying huge dividends. Virtually all elites, be they corporate, academic, or government, adhere to the same left-wing social views.  The only difference is that some of them want lower taxes than others, and so call themselves Republicans]

Apple is among the other major corporations that have taken to the pulpit to lecture North Carolina for its sins despite doing business with anti-gay foreign regimes. CEO Tim Cook was one of several high-profile tech CEOs who signed a letter to Republican Gov. Pat McCrory calling on him to repeal the legislation……..

…….But, as Mr. Sharp points out, that has not stopped Apple from opening stores in Saudi Arabia, where gay people are regularly executed in public and cross-dressing is also a criminal offense. Pro-gay and trans advocacy are illegal, as is every religion except Islam.

……..Corporate America is only as tolerant as it can afford to be without losing money.  All this talk about “corporate values” is blather.  If those “values” interfere with the company making money, the company will drop them.

Perhaps there is a lesson there for us few left who retain some degree of sanity.  I know it gets exhausting to boycott this company or that because they are involved in immoral activities, if we boycotted every organization that is involved in some immoral activity we’d have to live in a cave, but there are leaders who can be chosen to make an example of, by refusing to do business with them because of their strident support for immorality.  Like Apple.

But then, I haven’t been an Apple guy for a long time.  I outgrew that after college.  Not that Google is any better.  I do sicken of Apple’s constant, reflexive, and hypocritical leftist agitating, however.

I pray to God people, especially women, could learn the object lesson of this latest shift in the great aggrieved class pyramid.  170 million odd American women have been demoted on this pyramid yet again, replaced on a higher step by 200,000 men who pretend to be women. Virtually every aggrieved gets demoted by the latest preferred group from time to time. And yet women, as a group, continue to lean left and endorse much of this cultural suicide pact called leftism.  Present company excepted, of course.

The point being, it’s a fools game, and the benefits you think you are getting from being near the top today may not only evaporate tomorrow, but you may well be hoisted on your own social justice petard.

Well, eventually all this will come to an end, once islam overruns the remains of the comatose West.  That is, barring some radical and completely unforeseeable change of heart.

Enjoy your time in the Camp of the Saints while it lasts.

I’ve admired Bishop Rene Gracida Emeritus of Corpus Christi since learning about him shortly after founding this blog.  I was really pleased to learn that because of severe deficiencies he has observed in the Novus Ordo, he only offers the TLM anymore.

Michael Voris has done a good service in posting several Vortex episodes featuring Bishop Gracida.  If the Church had far more shepherds like him over the past several decades (he actually excommunicated pro-aborts), the Church and world would be a far better place.

Some of the info below is biographical, some is timely, and some is inspirational.  Take a few minutes and watch all the videos if you have not already seen them:

OK, I think he undersells matters a bit here regarding Vatican II, but this condemnation is much further than the vast majority of bishops would go:

Now, I really like the idea Bishop Gracida proposes in the video below.  It would take rather weighty stones, but we’re in desperate need of calling a spade a spade in the Church today:

So what do you think of that?  Should laity start calling out – even in the midst of the Holy Sacrifice- when priests or even bishops promote error, heresy, or abuse?  Some might be aghast at the idea of interrupting the sanctity of the Mass, but I can say such interruptions did occur in the early Church, especially in the East.  There were a large number of liturgies at Hagia Sophia interrupted by scandalized laity calling out the proclamations of heretical leadership, especially during the iconoclast heresy.

I can say, I’ve been tempted to do so in the past.  I never assist at locales where heresy and abuse is taught from the pulpit anymore, but I think, at the point of extremis in which the Church finds herself, such drastic action should not be dismissed out of hand.  You don’t need to go charging up to the altar mid-Mass if the priest’s maniple is not tied right, but if Father Dudebro starts waxing about sodomite “love wins” or that the pope has declared divorce to be A-OK for the universal Church………well, we have to push back at some  point, don’t we?  Of course, prudence must guide all and perhaps first attempts should be made at counseling the offender, but for those who recalcitrantly refuse to stop preaching the errors of newchurch, I think such an intervention could certainly be called for.

Always remember: shame works.  There is very little that motivates like shame, and avoidance of it.  I believe the collapse of shame as a motivator has played a significant role in the accelerating downfall of the West.  Now, a strong adherence to ideology can insulate someone from shame, as can having a lot of support from a captive audience, but I have to believe a few public shamings of heresy would have a chilling effect on its being proclaimed abroad.  An interesting experiment to conduct, at any rate.

Bishop Gracida continues to amaze and impress at over 90 years of age.  He looks like he could go another 20. Ad multos annos.
