SJW Millennials and Severe Personality Disorders March 8, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, asshatery, demographics, disaster, error, family, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, rank stupidity, Revolution, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
What is it Michael Savage has said for years? That liberalism is a mental disorder? That might be a bit broad and harsh, but for the hardcore social justice warrior millennials, their brittle, unhinged behavior may have been an inevitable outcome of their upbringing in daycare centers and the rare overinvolvement of guilt-ridden helicopter parents. So says this author I’ve never heard of, whose conclusions I agree with so of course he must be right (teasing, this actually is important and parallels a recent Paul Joseph Watson video I’ll include at the bottom):
If you were to come across someone who cried in the streets, who saw the world in terms of black and white and made death threats against strangers, who cowered in a special room and made public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting, you might conclude that they were suffering from a personality disorder.
All these symptoms can be found in the High Conflict Personality Disorder category known as Axis II in DSMV, including Anti-Social PD, Histrionic PD, Paranoid PD, Narcissistic PD, and Borderline PD.
Alternatively, you might reason that these are the everyday behaviors of the modern Social Justice Warrior (SJW).
Of course, not every SJW has a personality condition, but sufferers from High Conflict disorders are often drawn to extreme beliefs and behaviors under the illusion that they are acting politically.
A 2016 UK survey found that, since 1990, rates of depression and anxiety among the young have increased by 70%, while the American Counseling Association has reported a “rising tide of personality disorders among millennials.”
Goodness. What could have caused this generation-wide descent into self-reinforcing mental disorder?
The majority of millennial children (now aged 18-34) had two working parents; this was partly an ideological project of feminism and partly economic necessity. The downside was the damage done by daycare, services for which grew by 250% between the 1970s and ;90s (see Laura Perrins’ work on psychological trauma caused by daycare). According to Bowlby’s Maternal Deprivation Thesis, babies require two years of intimate attention to enable them to form the caregiver-child bond essential for secure ego formation. Any disturbance of this process will “predispose the children to respond in an anti-social way to later stresses.”
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has found:
Children in full-time day care were close to three times more likely to show behavior problems than those cared for by their mothers at home.
The more time in child care of any kind or quality, the more aggressive the child.
The result is young people who, a decade and a half after daycare, scream at the parent/State for not protecting them sufficiently. It is no coincidence that “safe spaces” resemble daycare centers.
Unfortunately, “safe spaces” enforce the distressed person’s fear of the world, trapping them in their original trauma within a psychological frame of permanent and inescapable victimhood.
Faced with histrionic students, university staff end up behaving like “Helicopter Parents”: those largely absent, full-time working parents who overcompensated by flying in to fuss over their child. Attempting to assuage parental guilt, one of the tools they used was “positive parenting” — a philosophy created by social Progressives.
Parents were taught to not scold or punish, and instead to use “positive reinforcement” in an attempt to raise their children with “high self-esteem.” This ideology also became fashionable within an increasingly progressive school system that awarded children prizes for “non-competitive sports” and for merely taking part in school activities……..
……..A false picture of the world and a vastly inflated sense of self-importance did not compensate for the foundational trauma of parental neglect. Instead, as Dr. Jean Twenge has explained, Positive Parenting created young people with a “narcissistic wound” for whom the real world would be perceived as a threat to self-worth. [And a mystery they are wholly unable to navigate, let alone unravel]
Sooo…..insecure, uneducated, brittle narcissists with delusions of grandeur.
Well, that should bode well for the future.
My boss, who is within a year or two of my own supremely awesome Gen X age (no daycare for me, just a latch key kid from age 7, but I did get that all-important two years of cuddling), and I were discussing the prospects of hiring a college intern this summer. He was really wary of hiring a millennial. I gave him my experience – some are perfectly normal, awesome go-getter kids with a lot of motivation. I tend to imagine anyone successfully navigating engineering school cannot be entirely lost in infantile narcissism, but who knows?! We’ll find out this June. He says he’ll can ’em in a week if they have any attitude.
Seriously, the cultural and economic ramifications of this ignored-yet-coddled generation are shaping up to be mammoth. Largely children of baby boomers, they may turn out to be even more destructive than their parents. Millennials are shaping up to be extremely marriage- and child-adverse. They prefer apartments, and high-rise apartments at that, to single family homes. They want to live in hip urban centers, and nearly as many would rather use Uber than own their own car. The economic portents of those three factors alone are enormously negative. Whether they ever marry or not, it appears millennials will have even fewer kids (on average, we’re talking in the broadest sweeps) than any preceding generation. The US appears poised to start down the path of final demographic decline that Europe began 40-50 years ago.
But as I’ve said many times before, it is the kids who are the ultimate, most suffering victims of the great cultural marxist consumption of our culture. These kids didn’t choose to be raised by people making $7 an hour or indoctrinated into the cult of narcissistic self-esteem. They are as much victims as anyone, the parents visiting their own sins upon their children. Sadly, each proceeding generation has grown worse and worse. I shudder to imagine what the few kids of the millennials will turn out as. Maybe a large enough percentage will be sane homeschoolers living in rural areas/the exurbs to start to turn things around.
Probably don’t quite have the numbers yet.
Is this post too much like the fave of leftists from a few years ago, the “studies reveal all conservatives are stupid” kind? Or is it OK in this case BECAUSE IT’S TRUE!
I’ve had an odd day, so didn’t expect to post, but I saw this and had to share. Does Time Magazine bother to mention that “Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good” is nothing more than a leftist front group intended to provide pseudo-intellectual cover for liberal self-described Catholics to vote democrat, no matter how egregiously the D candidate offends against the Doctrine of the Faith? Do they relate that “Catholics in Alliance” has a tiny and severely aging membership, and that they have been roundly decried by bishops and even the Vatican for spreading falsehoods regarding the Faith? Of course not.
Miraculously, it seems, for this leftist writer, the Truth Our Blessed Lord revealed just happens to align perfectly with his particular brand of leftism, feminism.
But, preach, brother, tell us all about this Jesus fellow we’ve been so mixed up on in the past. I pray you won’t mind if I add my own comments:
Jesus, the great protagonist of this holy season, shows us that life and redemption aren’t achieved through strength and power but by rejecting privilege and taking up the sufferings of the entire human family. [Actually, Christ spoke greatly about religious hypocrisy, but never denounced privilege – such as political or economic power – as such. He denounced the Pharisees because they twisted the true faith and used it to serve their own prurient interests. But being rich or powerful or privileged is not a sin in itself, so long as that wealth or power is turned towards the practice of virtue in sharing it as Christ demands with others]In Jesus, God takes on the fullness of human dysfunction — its disloyalty, its violence, and its terror — to redeem everything. He goes all the way down to bring everyone up. No one is excluded. [No. This is horrifically wrong. Christ did not take ON human dysfunction, in the sense that it corrupted His perfect being as both God and Man. Christ ENDURED human dysfunction, he was the victim of it, but he did not succumb to it, as this writer perversely says. The horrors that can emerge from this fatal misunderstanding of who Christ is cannot be overstated. This is an egregious error far beyond even what the Arians claimed. God is not “dysfunctional.” Sheesh.]
[Here it comes……..] As a white heterosexual Christian man it’s a reminder that if I am to authentically honor the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ this holy season, I must acknowledge and reject the privilege afforded me for the sake of taking the path of Jesus Christ. [And there it is. See my conclusion below. This poor lost soul has made the Truth of Jesus Christ subordinate to his ideology. Those privileges, for instance, should be viewed as gifts God has provided someone – gifts of normal, non-perverse sexuality, gifts of a stable home life as a child, gifts of being inculcated in the Faith (though it appears this one was done badly) – these are things to be cherished and recognized in order to demonstrate our thanks to God for them. How does one show thanks by loathing all that one is and has? That is precisely what SJWs of the feminist type demand of men, especially non-perverse white males. That loathing is the height of presumption and, yes, diabolical narcissism. Of course all sin and all are dependent on God’s Grace for salvation, but that doesn’t mean we have to bemoan whatever goods and privileges God has given us. We must simply, like the good stewards, take these gifts and make them profitable, returning 10 fold or 5 fold on them in the service of God and Holy Mother Church.]
There’s nothing better for me to do this Lent than to abstain and fast from the sexism that too often colors my life. [Speak for yourself. And perhaps you might focus on some of your more significant sins, such as finding nothing wrong in supporting politicians and policies who make baby killing their highest and most sacred belief.]
Now, let’s set the record straight: there are those who are blatantly sexist and there are those who unintentionally perpetuate micro-acts of sexism in their everyday lives. I’m most certainly a sinner, but on my best days, I’m hopefully more of the latter than the former. And perhaps that’s more pernicious in a country where Donald Trump is President. [And now we get to the point. This isn’t about Catholicism, or providing counsel to souls in need, this is about getting democrats elected and defeating Donald Trump – which is the sine qua non of the so-called Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good.]
His election certainly reminds us that sexism still runs rampant in the world’s longest lasting democratic republic. But to pretend that this problem is spread equally throughout the nation is to ignore the reality that some communities and institutions are the greatest offenders. [Republicans and conservatives, we can be sure. But how sexist is it to support the brutal murder of 50,000,000 million babies worldwide, which are disproportionately female (in some countries, over 80% female)? This is nothing but SJW politicking disingenuously and cynically wrapped in religious language.]
As a sinner who does his best every day to follow Jesus Christ, [I think I can safely say, you’re doing it wrong]it’s time to admit that the Christian community runs rampant with sexism, [So having a traditional family with mom at home, dad working, raising kids to do the same, going to church, and opposing abortion are now “sexist.” And the stupid link doesn’t even begin to provide any evidence of this supposed sexism, it’s another opinion piece written by – get this – a rock n’ roll front man] and that — yes — I am a big part of it. All men are. [To attribute a negative characteristic simply on the basis of one’s being – black, white, male, female, whatever – is the height of whatever “-ism” the SJWs purport to oppose. All men are sexist, and we can only redeem ourselves by completely surrendering to the leftist-feminist zeitgeist. Convenient, that. Thus, politics are made the only means of redemption, a complete perversion of the Faith.] That’s the nature of societal sin: no one is truly devoid of responsibility, though some are more responsible than others. [Christ is far less concerned with societal sin, than he is with personal sin. Once again, you reveal how you have TOTALLY subordinated whatever faith you purport to have to your ideological predilections]
I am responsible, and I ashamed. The words of the Psalmist ring in my ears: “Forgive me, O Lord, for I have sinned!” [Get this: ashamed of imaginary sexism, things he isn’t even able to be conscious of, but not of baby murder. Got it.]
………“Rend your hearts, not your garments!” It’s time for me and for the Christian community to reject artificial penance and to open our broken and confused hearts to authentic conversion and to see what it is inside of us that constantly allows us to debase and devalue women. [Again, speak for yourself. And perhaps, consider this (which is huge, and perhaps explains why leftists project so much). And this. This is again naught but a massive guilt trip – vote democrat OR YOU’RE GOING TO HELL!!!!]
[Now here we go, with such totally devastating truth bombs your mind will EXPLODE!!!!] …..M y journey towards an authentic Christian feminism isn’t novel. In fact, it’s a rediscovery of the faith as it was in the beginning. [See, Christianity was always intended to align perfectly with leftist-feminist views, before evil men – like St. Paul, St. John, St. Peter, and, oh yeah, the Holy Ghost, as He inspired all Scripture – ruined it.] Jesus Christ himself was the faith’s first feminist. The great heroes of this holy season are the strong and courageous women who stayed with Jesus through his final hours, while most of his male disciples ran away in fear.
This is really disgusting and egregious. These poor lost creatures never miss an opportunity to co-opt a great Holy Day to advance their agenda.
Here’s a notion our emasculated hero might want to contemplate: this Faith Jesus Christ conveyed is meant to be much larger than your political preferences. Indeed, the Doctrine of the Faith is meant to inform and, most importantly, transform your pre-existing notions, about, say, how wonderfully good and holy it is to murder 125,000 babies a DAY worldwide through elective abortion (Catholics in Alliance being notoriously pro-abort). I’ve radically changed numerous beliefs to conform with the Truth Jesus Christ reveals. THAT is the fundamental transformation that has to take place within each individual heart and mind before this transformation of the culture the author so longs for can even begin to occur. All else is just a fallen human construct, even diabolical, and will end in horror, as all history has shown leftism invariably tends to do.
But what a feeble, pathetic, obvious attempt.
How the Elitist Uniparty Works February 28, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, asshatery, contraception, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, rank stupidity, Revolution, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society.
Barbara Bush is headlining a fundraiser for Planned Butcherhood here in Texas. Franklin Graham is not amused:
Franklin Graham is calling out former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, for speaking at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser on Thursday, saying that raising funds for the abortion business is like raising money for Nazi death camps.
“Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States,” Graham wrote in a Facebook post yesterday. “Raising funds for this organization is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp — like Auschwitz, except for innocent babies in their mother’s wombs!”
The Christian evangelist and son of Billy Graham continued: “Reports say they [Planned Parenthood] perform over 300,000 abortions per year. And this is the organization whose employees were caught on video trying to sell baby body parts over wine. Disgusting.”
Bush will be the keynote speaker at the fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. Individual tickets to the event cost $150, and sponsorship levels go up to $20,000.
As LifeSiteNews reported, Bush’s company, Global Health Corps, which promotes “health equity,” works closely with Planned Parenthood, which Bush labeled an “exceptional organization.” A senior staffer for GHC is a former board member of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, and the Pacific Northwest Abortion Fund.
Bush and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards “are enthusiastic supporters of each other’s work,” The New York Times reported in an article celebrating their alliance.
When it comes to social issues, Bush seems to have imbibed the liberal worldview of former First Lady Laura Bush, who is pro-abortion-on-demand and pro-“gay marriage.”
………Barbara Bush also supported Hillary Clinton’s run for president.
So, I’m an ardent pro-lifer. I know many others who are. I can’t say I know many of those ardent pro-life fathers and mothers whose kids wound up becoming pro-abort. I’m far from sure I know any couples where the husband and wife ostensibly disagree stridently on matters such as abortion and pseudo-sodo-marriage. The point being, this is further evidence whatever slight pro-life stands Bush ’43 took were probably simply for political expedience and not related to some deeply held belief.
It’s more than passing odd that this formerly leading family of the Republican party has so many close and happy associations with ardent leftists. That’s what I mean by self-serving elitist uniparty. They all attend the same institutions, go to the same parties, marry within the group, seek to please the same corporate masters, and wind up believing pretty much the same things.
More on the Bush family’s long-time love affair with contraception and abortion. Yes it’s Mother Jones but there are many other articles from less left-wing sites confirming the same thing, but this one gave the most detail.
Choosing Sides: Bush ’43 Bashes Trump February 27, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, rank stupidity, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
Ace notes quite rightly that, in spite of constant barbs and insults directed at him by President Obama, who continued to blame the poor state of the economy on Bush 3 or 4 years into his administration, Bush 43 remained silent on Obama’s numerous mistakes, errors, and outright atrocities. The establishment takes care of their own, and admits of no coarse and benighted outsiders. Bush did at least note that Trump’s only been in office for a month, but his comments were distinctly hostile, especially in light of his constant silence in spite of all that Obama said against him and his administration. I’ll also add that Bush has once again proven what a family of total squishes he belongs to. The quotes below contain Bush’s comments, I add my own and emphasis:
Former President George W. Bush offered what appeared to be a thinly veiled critique of his Republican successor on Monday, as he defended the importance of the media and immigration policies that are “welcoming.”
…“I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush said.[No, you have always been a fervent supporter of shamnesty and unconstrained illegal immigration, with periodic waves of the wand that make those illegals legal. You are one of those Republicans who believe, contrary to all evidence and logic, that Hispanics are just craving a little more appeasement from Repubniks in order to transform from an overwhelmingly reliable liberal/leftist voting bloc, and into a conservative/Republican one. Phyllis Schlafly rightly recognized this as insanity, and a sure way to not only destroy all future national conservative electoral prospects, but the very cultural fabric of this nation]
He also echoed the reported comments of new National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, refusing to term terrorism as inherently Islamic.
“People who murder the innocent are not religious people,” Bush said. “They want to advance an ideology. And we have faced those kind of ideologues in the past.” [Only someone deliberately ignorant of the entire history, distant and recent, of islam could make this claim, leaving aside the most key aspects of islamic doctrine, which have always advocated the spread of islam through violence, repression, and rapine]
“I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy,” Bush said. “That we need an independent media to hold people like me to account. Power can be very addictive. And it can be corrosive.” [Where is the media being persecuted or prevented from speaking their mind? Good grief he gets absolutely excoriated as a new Hitler, racist, homophobe, etc., dozens if not hundreds of times every single day. For the vast majority of the establishment media there is nothing at all Trump can do right, and many within it have been plotting for his impeachment if not assassination since before he took office! Trump’s reaction to this has been exceedingly modest, only calling out the bias of the press the vast majority of his supporters see as being a huge problem in our disintegrating republic, and doing what Obama did – favoring certain news sites while blocking those relentlessly hostile to him. This is just politics as usual.]
“One of the things I spent a lot of time doing was trying to convince a person like Vladimir Putin, for example, to accept the notion of an independent press,” said Bush, who cautioned that “it’s kind of hard to tell others to have an independent free press and we’re not willing to have one ourself.” [Well, this is certainly the view of the establishment desperate to hold onto its power. I don’t think it’s exactly a revelation that Bush is both a part of, and beholden to, that same failing, unqualified, self-anointed elite group. I’ve generally eschewed populism in my life but the establishment has failed so miserably for so long, and has put this nation in such great jeopardy, that I am willing to countenance even radical solutions to break their power and influence, as, apparently, a great number of Americans agree. Trump was far from my first choice, but I am so fed up I took a flyer on a wildcard. What I do know is that a$$hats like Bush simply are not getting the job done.]
And now he just gets nasty:
Bush said it was important to know the truth about any relationship between Russia and members of the current administration — “I think we all need answers — but dodged when asked if a special prosecutor was required to look into collusion allegations. [Even though there is zero evidence of any improper contacts. But democrats and establishmentarians – but I repeat myself – want it to be true so very badly they are trying to wish the evidence into existence]
Sour grapes from a manifest failure? Bush almost destroyed the Republican party and gave us Obamacare more than any single person, as his miserable administration led to both the most radical president in US history and a veto-proof majority for the dems in Congress. Republicans had the House, Senate, and presidency at various times in Bush’s administration, and he played an enormous role in losing all that (with a huge assist from hideously biased media).
There is no more insider-elite family than the Bushes. They practically define the self-serving corporate-interest serving uniparty so many Americans have come to deplore. I’m hardly surprised he’s going to take shots at Trump. But I still find it galling that this man who couldn’t be moved to, say, even defend the rights of Christians, one of which he purports to be, in the face of unprecedented persecution on the part of the Obama administration. Or the unilateral pullout from Iraq that left that country vulnerable to an islamist – be it wahhabist or Iranian-dominated shia – takeover. There are endless examples to pull from, on matters infinitely more substantial than Trump’s feud with the press or fantasies regarding Russian involvement. Where was Bush on Obama’s radical pro-abort stands? I could go on for thousands of words.
Ah, well, a Bush wound up on the wrong side of the interests of the American people in favor of a narrow, self-interested elite once again. Film at 11.
Dems Enlisting Terrified, Indoctrinated Children to Attack Trump February 27, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, rank stupidity, scandals, secularism, sickness, Society.
Mark Dice very appropriately eviscerates a recent NBC propaganda piece that claims to honestly transmit the concerns of blatantly terrified kids regarding the Trump administration. Apparently, most New York leftist-raised children know Trump is a Nazi fascist homophobe racist anti-semite that just wants to kill him some dark skinned people. This has nothing to do with their parent’s biases, irrational phobias, and political radicalism. These are just the honest concerns of kids, concerns that were not forced upon them by parent or teachers at all.
I want you to observe the racial breakdown in the video below. Of about 12 kids interviewed, only two to four, I couldn’t quite tell, were visibly caucasian. America is still nearly 3/4 white (at least, officially, not factoring in who knows how many illegals). So this is an extremely skewed sample simply on that basis. We also know that whites broke overwhelmingly for Trump while minorities were overwhelmingly against. Maybe NBC should have expanded their search beyond some Upper West Side prep school:
Why do kids who appear to be about 3/4 white call themselves black? Is it because of the massive in-built advantages being listed as a “minority” confers? If whites were so all-powerful and possessed of so many wonderful societal privileges denied everyone else, why would so many millions of mixed race people invariably identify with whatever minority component they possess? If being white was so wonderfully awesome and opened so many amazing doors, while being minority (of whatever type) was so hideous, full of constant put-downs and outright persecutions, wouldn’t these people be clamoring to ID as white?!?
Of course we know the answer. Being a minority in this country conveys special privileges and advantages that are denied to whites, and, increasingly, asians.

The Media’s “Job,” and Some Just Can’t Handle the Truth February 24, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, cultural marxism, Domestic Church, family, General Catholic, rank stupidity, silliness, Society.
A couple of brief, close out the week items via reader T. First up, the media let’s us know what their real job is, not just presenting events as they occur in a factual and unbiased manner, but, no, telling us scary, unstable, easily enraged little people what to think:
Secondly, the billboard below apparently enraged some North Carolina feminists:
Seems pretty straightforward to me. I guess theirs no accounting for taste, but I think you have to be pretty messed up to find this notion so offensive as to stage a protest……..next to a billboard:
A billboard on Interstate 40 West near Winston-Salem is angering many who say its message is offensive to women.
The board reads: “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.” The owner of a Winston-Salem women’s boutique called Kleur has organized a demonstration against the billboard’s message for Sunday at 11 a.m.
On the plus side, from one of the comments:
the women’s movement nor their marches represent me…this sign does!
What do you lovely ladies think?
Milo What? Islamic Professor Defends Rape and Slavery at Georgetown February 24, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, disaster, Ecumenism, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, Immigration, It's all about the $$$, persecution, rank stupidity, scandals, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
As you can guess, the reaction to the proclamation of these particular abhorrent beliefs has been just a little bit different from what was directed at Milo, because a prof is a member of the great left-wing machine and leftists always take care of their own. h/t to reader skeinster who sent this along (I know reports of this have been around for a while but they were fairly scattered so it’s likely many have not seen this):
Two weeks ago today, a professor from Georgetown University publicly rose to the defense of slavery and rape, and not a single major media outlet—with the exception of a blogger on the Washington Post website and a brief posting on foxnews.com—has said a word about it. The absence of outrage is not hard to figure out: Jonathan Brown’s defense was limited to Islam. [yet another sign that islam is the de facto state religion of this country]
Brown, a convert to Islam, holds an endowed chair in Islamic studies at Georgetown. The Jesuit-run institution has a wealthy benefactor in Saudi Arabia, a nation which bans Christianity. How sweet.
What did Georgetown get from this arrangement? Money, and a lot of it. Twelve years ago, Saudi Arabia wrote a check to the Jesuit-run institution for $20 million; it went to support the school’s Center for Muslim Christian Understanding, run by Brown. And what did Saudi Arabia get from this peculiar “understanding”? Legitimacy. [And much more than that. They got the silence of a Catholic university on the evils of islam. They got influence at a body that in turns greatly influence mainstream Catholic thought. They got influence on American and Catholic thought leaders for years to come. They got more and more acceptance of the idea that islam is deserving of special rights and privileges]
The fruit from this decayed tree is now apparent. Georgetown now employs a tenured professor who defends slavery and rape, provided the slavemasters and rapists are Muslims. This is apparently Georgetown’s idea of diversity. It also shows how phony the school is. Why all the handwringing about Georgetown’s ownership of American slaves in the 19th century when it employs defenders of slavery today?
Brown’s position was not made in the heat of debate. If anything, his comments were well prepared: they were delivered at the Islamic Institute for Islamic Thought. After being criticized by some, he tried to walk it back, offering a lame Tweet that meant nothing.
“As a category, as a conceptual category that exists throughout states and trans-historically,” Brown said clumsily, “there’s no such thing as slavery.” It gets better. “I don’t think you can talk about slavery in Islam until you realize that there is no such thing as slavery.” [Naturally. If you can’t defend your religion’s behavior on a subject, pretend the subject doesn’t exist. Also, taqqiyah.]
It is not certain what Brown would say to slaves in Mauritania and Somalia today—they are owned by their Muslim masters. Would he tell them to stop promoting fake news?……..
Brown is also incompetent. If slavery doesn’t exist in Muslim-run nations, why the need to justify it? “Slavery cannot just be treated as a moral evil in and of itself,” he opined. He really means it. “I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody because we own lots of people all around us.” [This guy is really screwed up. Go figure for a western convert to islam]
(Who he owns he did not say, but perhaps the Southern Poverty Law Center will look into it. Maybe I’ll convert to Islam and see if I can buy him. I’ll use my credit card—Mastercard for the Master.)
When someone in the audience challenged Brown, he became indignant, as well as inconsistent. “The fact that there was slavery is wrong [thus did he contradict his remark that there was no such thing in Islam]. Okay. If you’re a Muslim, the prophet of God…had slaves. He had slaves. There’s no denying that. Are you more morally mature than the prophet of God? No, you are not.” [HE’S DEMANDING STUDENTS ACCEPT THE DICTATES OF ISLAM, A FALSE SATANIC RELIGION, ON A CATHOLIC CAMPUS!!! This is an appeal to authority based on his view that Mohammad – if he existed – is supposedly “god’s” prophet. Does Brown know that, unlike Christ, Mohammad worked no miracles, did no great good deeds witnessed by tens of thousands, in short gave absolutely zero evidence of any supernatural connection or powers short of a book he wrote, alone, under supposed guidance from Gabriel? Does Brown admit of the satanic verses where the Koran (at least, a version where these bits are not expunged) admits that satan fooled Mohammad? Did satan ever trick Christ into teaching error?]
One would hope that all of us are more morally mature than Muhammad. After all, he was not only a slavemaster and an advocate of violence, he consummated his marriage with his bride Aisha when she was nine years old. That’s what we call rape.
Speaking of which, Brown went on to say that non-consensual sex—it’s called rape—is okay with him, at least if the offenders are adherents to Islam. He took aim at the Western notion of “consent,” maintaining that “It’s very hard to have this discussion because we think of, let’s say in the modern United States, the sine qua non of morally correct sex is consent.”
Continuing his defense of rape, Brown criticized Americans for making a big deal about individual rights. “We fetishize the idea of autonomy to the extent that we forget, again who’s really free? Are we really autonomous people?” In other words, since none of us is really autonomous, the difference between us and a rape victim is more contrived than real. [And you can tell from this exactly how far into islam this guy has gone, and it’s pretty damned deep. This is exactly why islamic societies are so backwards, hidebound, superstitious, and casually disdainful of human life. They place no value on the self as a unique soul created in the image and likeness of God – or to the extent they do, they have horribly perverted this understanding precisely in order to justify Mohammad’s abhorrent, amoral behavior.]
Brown and Georgetown would be on the front page of every newspaper in the nation if he had justified Christians enslaving and raping Muslims.
Dang straight. Good piece by Deal Hudson.
This is what the Left has in store for you folks. Get rid of Christianity, create a failed totalitarian leftist state, then submit to the almighty allah.
Brown does a fine job of revealing the demonic immorality at the heart of islam, as well as islam’s inability to logically, rationally defend itself. The appeals to authority start within moments. And I would say Christianity’s long struggle to extirpate slavery from Western civilization sufficiently establishes its inherent moral superiority.
Only a muslim extremist would claim differently. Good to know just what $20 million in dirty Saudi oil money will buy.

These are both great, and just what I need to kick out a post in 5 minutes! First, Nigel Farage, key man in the drive towards Brexit in the UK, discusses the destructive influence leftist domination of the schools, where propaganda replaces traditional curricula, and the effect this has had on the “millennial” generation:
“This young generation, who scream words like ‘fascist,’ have actually themselves become the fascists.”
This was from an hour long speech he gave at Hillsdale College.
Next, and even more fun, the increasingly awesome Tucker Carlson utterly eviscerates a clueless and very confused young man who can’t provide a single, verifiable reason for his (and many other’s) unhinged opposition to Trump:
Stupidity like that actually makes me cringe. It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard to me, seeing someone so completely unable to form a rational argument or justify his very strident beliefs. He is so propagandized he a) can’t think, and b) is only able to repeat the dumb, dense talking points he’s been spoon fed. The terrifying thing about this is that there are millions, possibly tens of millions just like him, and many of them do not have the excuse of being young or formed in a corrupt, politicized educational establishment.
But that’s precisely the point of gaining control of the schools and indoctrinating children in cultural marxism. Yuri Bezmenov, one of the architects of cultural marxism in the West and a former KGB agent, says the system is so pernicious those who become captured by it are never – barring some great act of Grace, I suppose – able to escape. They are literally unable to think independently or critically. This cultural marxist hold on the education system started in the 50s and 60s, gained firm hold by the late 80s, and has had total dominance since the 90s. At least parts of three generations have been affected by it, with the latest generation seemingly dominated by this kind of thinking (there are, of course, exceptions).
Carlson has folks like this on about every night, it seems, and similarly crushes and embarrasses them. Yet they keep coming. What could motivate someone to do that? What would cause a young leftist to think they’re the one who will finally give Carlson his comeuppance? Diabolical narcissism.
It Will Be Light Posting Again This Week February 14, 2017Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, Basics, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, rank stupidity, Revolution, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
No, no more pressing health problems, for the moment, thank God, but I am stuck in all day meetings three days this week with a hard rule on no laptops or phones. You can thank the VP of Quality for that. Her rule, not mine. So, I won’t have really any time to post until Friday, at best, and I’m sure I’ll be playing a lot of catchup then.
A little quickie to tide you over, some data that is as satisfying to your snarky side as it is revealing. A German study has found that 90% of the most hardcore leftist “protestors” in that country still live at home, and a huge percentage are unemployed. I doubt the situation is much different in this country, most of the so-called “antifa” (anti-fascist) radicals here are associated with various universities, either as part-time students, professional students, drop-outs, staff, and/or hangers on. It has been revealed that a number of the most violent rioters in Berkeley were faculty or staff of that benighted institution (I heard somewhere – I think from Milo – that only 37% of recent Berkeley graduates are employed?):
A new study shows that over 90 percent of the anti-fascist protestors in Europe are still living in their mother’s basement.
Heat Streetreports that the study found that 92 percent of the protesters at these anti-fascist rallies that are believed to have committed violence still live with their parents. Heat Street also notes the following findings from the study:
- 84% are male
- 72% are aged 18-29
- 90% are single
- 34% are unemployed
These “Antifa” protesters have been behind the violent protests that occurred on the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration and the riots that occurred in U.C. Berkeley when Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopolous was scheduled to speak. In fact, it seems that the violence didn’t start until the “Antifa” thugs appeared, according to International Business Times.
In reality, most of these “spontaneous protests” are nothing of the kind, they are carefully planned and organized, while most of the hardcore of this group are basically paid activists/protestors/activists. They are paid by the demonrat party and many allied George Soros funded groups. Many people have found ads on Craig’s List and other sites that attest to this fact, where advertisements appear regularly offering pay for taking part in protest-riots. It’s all astroturf, fake grass roots uprisings conducting politics by other means, attempting to achieve on the streets through violence what the failed and rejected leftist agenda failed to win at the ballot box. It’s exceedingly dangerous to fund and support groups like this, not only with money but with increasingly extremist and unhinged rhetoric – thinks like this can easily spin out of control.
Which may be the point of it all. As I said, politics by other means. When their political program utterly fails to attract the support of the majority, the historical tendency of the Left is to resort to violence. More and more people are noting that a kind of civil war, whether fought with armed combat or not, is in the offing.
At any rate, I’m off for a 1st birthday party for my youngest, have a blessed few days and I’ll try to catch up with you on Friday.
