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.

Flightline Friday: The Best Book on the ATF Program and YF-23, Ever February 24, 2017

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Flightline Friday, foolishness, fun, history, reading, sickness, technology.
10 comments

I did a Flightline Friday about a year and a half ago discussing, among other things, the YF-23 Advanced Tactical Fighter prototype produced by Northrop.  The Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) program was initiated in the 1980s by the USAF to produce not just an F-15 replacement, but a fighter that could finally and decisively sweep the skies over Central Europe during an all-out conflict with the Soviet Union.  It was designed to be the most comprehensively advanced and dominant air combat aircraft ever produced.

The program evolved over the course of the 80s.  From many disparate concepts from a whole lot of companies – very few of which exist anymore – the program was eventually narrowed down to a competition between a team led by Northrop (with McDonnell Douglas) and Lockheed (with General Dynamics and Boeing).  Northrop produced the YF-23 (and this was ALL Northrop, McAir had almost nothing to do except some cockpit layout and providing the landing gear from an F-15), and Lockheed the YF-22 (here the situation was entirely different, GD contributed TONS to the Lockheed design and may have saved their bacon.  Lockheed massively redesigned their aircraft proposal in 1987-8, requesting 6 additional months from USAF to do so, because the original concept had so many problems).

At any rate, history shows, for reasons that are still inexplicable to some, that USAF preferred the ugly, block-like YF-22 to the graceful YF-23. Both aircraft had advantages over the other – the YF-23 was faster, in most respects stealthier and had superior supersonic maneuverability, while the YF-22 was better in the close-in, subsonic fight and carried substantially more missiles internally.

Even though the aircraft were designed nearly 30 years ago, much data on them has remained classified.  Particularly classified has been concrete data on the production aircraft proposed by Northrop for the F-23.  The actual production F-23 would have differed significantly from the YF-23, for a variety of reasons, though not nearly so much as the F-22 has wound up differing from the YF-22 (of course, USAF had a great deal to do with that, and details on Lockheed’s original engineering and manufacturing development version of the YF-22 – basically their vision of the production aircraft – have been even harder to find than those of the F-23).

Also somewhat limited has been extensive detail on the numerous other submissions made over the early phase of the ATF program from companies like Grumman, North American (Rockwell), McDonnell Douglas, Boeing, etc.

Well all that has ended, as former Northrop Chief Test Pilot and YF-23 lead pilot Paul Metz has now, in conjunction with Steve Ginter, produced THE seminal book on not only the F-23 but the entire ATF program. And this thing is an absolute gem. I was up way past 1 last night because I could not put the book down.

Just a few of the highlights:

  • Loads of never-before seen photos of ATF submittals and YF-23
  • Incredibly detailed construction drawings of YF-23
  • Extensive sections of the F-23 EMD submittal (upon which the USAF judged the winner of the competition – again, this was the manufacturer’s plan for final production design, maintenance, operations, etc) are repeated
  • Incredibly detailed construction drawings of the F-23 EMD design.  There has been one of these outted before but Metz adds several more
  • Detailed history of YF-23 development including key players involved, like Yu Ping Liu, who designed the aircraft’s stealth characteristics
  • Detailed history of Northrop’s internal design progression towards a stealthy air combat fighter over the years 1971-1986. The YF-23 design was basically fixed by late 1985 (!!)
  • An unprecedented amount of material on the Naval ATF version.  During the late 80s, it was planned that the Navy would buy a navalized version of the ATF winner to replace the F-14.  The end of the Cold War killed that idea.

The book is brand new (hit shelves Christmas last year) and a bit high (~$38).  It’s not real long but it is jam packed with information.  One of the things I have noted from those involved in the YF-23 program is the fact that it was a labor of love, the people working on it really loved each other and the amazing product.  That really shows through in this book, even though Metz eventually went to work for Lockheed and became chief test pilot on the rival F-22 team (after Lockheed won the competition), I get the sense from this book that his heart was always with the F-23.  As well it should have been.  It is still, as of this writing, conceptually the most advanced and capable aircraft ever produced.

A quick addendum: I noted in the post linked in the top some deficiencies with the YF-23 design that may have helped inform USAF’s decision to prefer the F-22 concept.  Because we knew so little about the F-23 EMD proposal, it was assumed some of those problematic features would have remained the same. No more.  The F-23 EMD corrected both the engine fan blade viewing problem and, for the most part, the shortfall of internal carriage of AMRAAMs compared to the F-22 (still would have been one short, but that’s a pretty small difference).  The F-23 EMD was MUCH different from what people thought based on the limited info that was out there.  If anything, it made the aircraft even more attractive.  If only they could have gotten rid of that canopy brace……

If you have anything more than a passing interest in the F-23 or F-22, get this book.

SPLC As Bad, Cynical, Ideological as You Would Expect February 23, 2017

Just some data to confirm what you already knew: the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which probably did some good and helpful work decades ago in helping to undermine and eliminate the legacy of the Jim Crow South, long ago became just another corrupt agent of leftist agitprop.  More specifically, they’re simply another attack wing of the demonrat party, trading on the good name and legacy they built up decades ago to engage in nakedly biased, partisan political attacks.

And typical for politically favored institutional attack dogs, their attacks are typically based on outright falsehoods and incredibly manipulated “data.”  As a for instance, in the wake of Trump’s election – and frankly mere days after the event – the SPLC claimed that “attacks” against  muslims had skyrocketed, as had the number of anti-muslim “hate” groups.

How did this horrible outbreak of persecution occur?  By broadcasting doubtful, or even inventing, incidents (many of which have been very publicly debunked) and listing things like billboards and individuals who hold beliefs the very far left SPLC finds wrong as being purveyors of “hate,” even if these beliefs are held by a large majority of Americans.  FrontPageMag has catalogued a partial list of some of their recent inventions and false condemnations of largely innocent people, who simply happen to think differently than they do, and it’s an amazing compilation:

“Huge Growth in Anti-Muslim Hate Groups During 2016: SPLC Report,” wails NBC News. “Watchdog: Number of anti-Muslim hate groups tripled since 2015,” FOX News bleats. ABC News vomits up this word salad. “Trump cited in report finding increase in US hate groups for 2nd year in a row.”

The SPLC stands for the Southern Poverty Law Center: an organization with slightly less credibility than Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, and without the academic degree in greasepaint.

And you won’t believe the shameless way the SPLC faked its latest Islamophobia crisis.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s latest “hate group” sightings claims that the “number of anti-Muslim hate groups increased almost three-fold in 2016.”

That’s a lot of folds.

And there is both bad news and good news from its “Year in Hate and Extremism.”

First the good news.

Casa D’Ice Signs, the sign outside a bar in K-Mart Plaza in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, is no longer listed as a hate group. The sign outside the bar had been listed as a hate group by the SPLC for years. The owner of Casa D’Ice had been known for putting politically incorrect signs outside his bar. So the SPLC listed the “signs” as a hate group. (Even though there was only one sign.) Not the bar. That would have made too much sense.

Since then Casa D’Ice was sold and the SPLC has celebrated the defeat of another hate group. Even if the hate group was just a plastic sign outside a bar.

But the bad news, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, is that anti-Muslim hate groups shot up from only 34 in 2015 to 101 in 2016.

What could possibly account for that growth? Statistical fakery so fake that a Vegas bookie would weep…….

…….The SPLC decided to count 45 chapters of Act for America as separate groups.

How do you get a sudden rise from 34 to 101 hate groups? It helps to suddenly add 45 chapters of one group. Act for America isn’t a hate group. It’s also just as obviously not 45 groups.

Act for America was only listed as one group in the 2015 list. It shot up to 45 now.

Furthermore Act for America boasts not 45, but 1,000 chapters across the country. Why list just 45 of them? Look at it from the SPLC’s perspective. Next year, it can add 200 chapters and claim that anti-Muslim hate groups once again tripled. And then it can do the same thing again the year after that……..

……..[T]he SPLC makes a point of highlighting the locations of likely terrorist targets. [People who oppose radical islam, for instance, or who uphold traditional morality] And the Southern Poverty Law Center’s map of hate has been used by terrorists before.

Floyd Lee Corkins opened fire at the headquarters of the Family Research Council. The conservative Christian organization had been targeted by Corkins because of its appearance on the SPLC’s list.

“Southern Poverty Law lists anti-gay groups. I found them online,” Corkins later confessed to the FBI.

When Leo Johnson, the building’s African-American manager, attempted to stop Corkins, the SPLC shooter told Johnson that he didn’t like his politics and opened fire. The SPLC gunman had planned to kill everyone in the office, but Johnson’s heroic actions saved their lives. The African-American building manager was forced to undergo painful surgeries because of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s hate list.

Despite its role in the terror attack, the SPLC continues to target the Family Research Council.

None of the so-called “Anti-Muslim hate groups” listed by the SPLC have shot anyone. The SPLC has……

……..But there is one barrier to being listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

No amount of overt anti-Semitism from CAIR’s Nihad Awad would ever get the Islamist hate group listed as a hate group. Even CAIR’s flirtation with Neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers can’t get it on the hate map. The SPLC collaborated with the Muslim Public Affairs Council despite its anti-Semitism.

Instead the SPLC lists counterterrorism organizations such as the Investigative Project on Terrorism, the Clarion Project and the David Horowitz Freedom Center which point out their terror ties as hate groups.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is greedy, cynical and dishonest.

Shorter post – the SPLC are thoroughgoing leftists who trade on the name and sufferings of those who truly fought discrimination and unjust persecution in order to advance leftism. If a person or group leans left, or is perceived as being part of the leftist coalition, as muslims are (even though muslims would destroy them, and take away so much of the sexual license leftists purport to love), they can literally do no wrong.  If a person or group (or sign) is perceived as standing in opposition to leftism, they can do no right, and the SPLC will be quite happy to unjustly tar that individual as some kind of hate-mongerer, if they hold beliefs counter to the religion of sexualized secular paganism.  It’s a travesty what they are allowed to do, but it’s part and parcel of the Left here and throughout the West.

Indeed, the SPLC has long listed traditional Catholic groups like the SSPX as “extremist” and supposedly guilty of one bad “-ism” or another.  That’s because traditional Catholics uphold morals and decency, and those things are bad, because large parts of the leftist coalition would get bad feelz if someone “judged” their sodomizing or adulterating.  They also have listed anti-abortion groups as “hate groups.”  Soooo………they’re bad.  Finis.

I pray to have the time tomorrow to post something much more substantive than these endless catalogs of the left’s moral failings and frank evil.  They’re important, but I will try to focus tomorrow and next week on much more Catholic-focused posts.

Not me for a change.  Reader and longtime helper of this blog MJD is having severe breathing problems that impacting her ability to sleep, among other things.  Please pray that doctors may diagnose the cause, which has been elusive, and devise a more effective treatment.

More generally speaking, apparently there is an effort afoot by pagan witches worldwide to curse President Trump. The Nineveh 90 group sent out an e-mail to all the thousands who signed up for that effort of prayer and penance to spiritually support the president through prayers and spiritual warfare tomorrow, Feb. 24 2017, the day the curses/spells are supposed to be unleashed.  You are especially encouraged to pray the Chaplet of the Holy Face.  More from Fr. Richard Heilman:

TO ALL … ESPECIALLY NINEVEH 90 WARRIORS!!

This is Friday. It is also our fasting day. I am calling upon everyone to add the Chaplet of the Holy Face on Friday, and also add special prayers of protection and blessing upon President Trump. Offer up your sufferings for the President this Friday!

The Gospel on this day also has the explicit teaching of Christ against divorce and remarriage.

THIS IS A SPIRITUAL WARFARE DAY!!!

Thank you for your charitable generosity in these matters.  May God bless and reward you abundantly.

Video Exposes “Social Conservative”/Leftist Joint Op to Bring Down Yiannopolous February 23, 2017

UPDATE: Just a note, I use scare quotes around “social conservative” and “conservative” in this piece because the people involved have covered themselves with this cloak, even though the key players are not either, to my mind, in reality.  Egg McMuffin is an opportunist who is collaborating with very toxic left-wing sources to try to wound Trump.  He, like the Left, is trying to re-litigate the election by other means.  This “Reagan Battalion” is relatively new and at least partially funded by democrat operatives.  Sounds like a sure fire paleo-con site to me!

Some amazing work below by Sargon of Akkad.  I’d like to leave this matter of Milo’s fall behind, but this simply adds too much to the picture to ignore, and also reveals the depths to which certain “conservative” groups will go in their attempts to destroy Trump.

You don’t have to watch the whole thing.  The last 8-10 minutes switch to a different but related topic.  But the first 17-18 minutes are absolutely must see.

Before I get into the revelations, however, let me note that I’ll address more aspects of the Milo situation at the bottom.  This is a complex matter, in which no one is completely free from guilt.

Having said that, what has Sargon (among others) found out?  First of all, there was a leak on the massive and often problematic 4chan site Sunday about noon forecasting exactly what was about to break on Milo.  This was obviously a leak from someone within the “mainstream” media, and showed exactly what was about to be dumped on Milo and, more importantly, why.  In a word, it was all about damaging Trump, gradually eliminating allies and so poisoning his name that democrats would – against all odds, and they are steep – win control of the Senate in 2018 and then move to impeach Trump, for what, at this point, I have no idea, because he’s barely had time to actually do anything.  For breaking their little leftist hearts, I suppose, and showing that their permanent electoral majority, at least at the presidential level, may not come to pass as they so fervently hoped.

So, this was obviously an orchestrated takedown.  It was not just a random release of something some independent sleuth “found” – it had been out for over a year, and I had seen parts of the Joe Rogan show in question.  But who orchestrated it?  Well, a self-interested cabal of self-described “conservatives” who happen to be tightly affiliated with, and funded by, democrats, and, oh yes, that paragon of virtue and former CIA operative, Evan McMullin.  A quarter of a million dollars of oppo research allegedly went into this effort, which just goes to show how much the establishment will waste money on things that could be found for free with a little interest and hard work.

The key part of the video is from 11:00 to 17:00.  This establishes the connection between the site that broke the news, with highly edited videos, the NeverTrumper brigade on the “right,” democrat operatives, and Evan McMullin.  I know some folks voted for McMullin out of exasperation over their choices in the two major parties, but his involvement here – which he has admitted – perhaps reveals more of his true character than his public rhetoric.  The story exploded incredibly fast, over a matter of minutes and not hours, precisely because all had been worked out in advance behind the scenes, as the 4chan leaker revealed.

McMullin’s goal, and that of the NeverTrumpers who worked with him to pull this off, is ultimately to destroy Trump a la the lines laid out by the 4chan confessor – whose post, I must remind, came out many hours before the first post broke at the “Reagan Battalion” site. So, this is NeverTrumpers making common cause with the leftist media, leaking stories in advance to destroy a despised target.  This is hugely revelatory.

As Sargon notes, this is not about concern for children.  None of these people and groups involved in the Milo takedown have expressed concern about numerous statements from leftists either saying the same thing, or admitting/doing far worse, ranging from Richard Dawkins to Leah Dunham to George Takei to Brian Singer.  But of course their is not criticism for these folks, they’re part of the great left-wing machine, and the Left always protects it’s own.  It’s quite different on the “right,” of course, where invective for conservatives who buck the establishment is often far more severe than anything directed at the democrats and their allies.

Having said all that, Milo, to a large degree, made this destruction all but inevitable by his bizarre and damaging comments on his own experience at the hands of a Catholic priest, and another unnamed individual.  Now there are some that hold that Milo can only “save” himself by coming forth and directly ID’ing those who abused him, or other men he’s allegedly seen taking part in boy-rape.  As Sargon points out, however, this would be an even shorter path to destruction for Milo than his disastrous comments, as making these allegations without proof would invite massive defamation suits and would simply discredit him in another way – which may be why some of these folks are demanding he do just that, to complete the destruction.  They would inevitably then turn around and lambast him for ruining “good people’s” names without proof. He’s stuck.  However, if you’d like another point of view regarding this imbroglio, see the video at the bottom.  It’s much less sympathetic and demands that Milo name names as a way of proving his opposition to pedophilia.  I certainly can sort of understand why folks would be demanding this, and I can also understand the severe criticism of Milo’s very warped views of “man-boy” relationships, a view almost certainly imposed on him by his abusers, but I still don’t think the demands entirely reasonable or fair, and the criticism may become a bit harsh at various points, mixing sad humor from a wounded soul with deeply heartfelt beliefs.

In a previous post on this matter, I said, as I’ve said before on other matters, that people who experience child sex abuse are never quite right again.  I have probably erred a bit in saying this, which was based both on my own experience associating with people abused as kids and out of my great desire to convey the total horror of these acts and their impact on children.  I don’t think the degree of damage that occurs to a child in these absolutely disgusting situations can be overstated.  But in my desire to convey this, I may have unintentionally conveyed that Grace cannot overcome such damage or even appeared to be discouraging towards survivors attempting to recover from abuse.  Neither was my intent, in fact, it was the opposite, to maintain a proper level of righteous outrage against these kinds of acts, but I probably need to temper my default rhetoric somewhat.  I plan on doing so going forward.

Regarding Milo, and George Takei, and Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, and probably far too many to name, this is just heartbreaking. The two Coreys, thank God, did not so internalize their abuse as to proclaim it wonderful and good, as the first two in my list did.  As Joe Rogan notes here, in a video I don’t recommend you watch save for the first 1:30, we must wonder just how many of those who proclaim affinity for the sodomite lifestyle are not doing so because they were abused by men as children.  My thinking is that it would be a shockingly large number, quite possibly, the distinct majority.  This event is so shattering and soul-destroying that some people not only have their sexuality changed, but apparently feel compelled to go back in time and redefine it as a “good,” in order to deal with it emotionally.  As the video at the bottom notes, pedophiles deliberately seek out disaffected young boys, boys who either have problems at home, or who are unsure of themselves, who are shy and uncomfortable and don’t fit in, and then shower attention on them and make them feel “wanted” and “loved.”  Once they have broken down the poor soul, they then move to their real objective, the satisfaction of their unnatural, perverted, hideous desires.  That a Catholic priest once again played a role in this………it is such a shame it is unbelievable.

And as the video at bottom points out – it’s long, but worth your time, as this man is an expert in dealing with recovery from abuse, physical and sexual – it is not uncommon at all for childhood victims of abuse to apologize for and defend their abusers, even blaming themselves for the abuse (making themselves the “aggressor” in a sexual relationship with an adult).  Of course this self-damnation stems from an attempt to reconcile soul-destroying behavior from someone in a position of authority, who violated the most sacred trust imaginable.

Anyway, I think I’ve said my piece on this now and put out all the nuance I planned.  Milo’s comments were surely warped, but I’m not sure how personally responsible he is for them.  But this must be a warning to all of us of what kind of evils will emerge from the growing subculture of Sodom and Gomorrah – how many other devotees of these sins share similar twisted beliefs because of their own nightmarish experiences?

These men do have a history, for those who care:

Call to Oppose Fox Program “The Mick” February 22, 2017

Aside from a bit of football, mostly college, we never watch TV.  Even watching football on a Saturday afternoon is problematic, at least, because of the commercials.  We generally turn the channel or turn it off.

So the likelihood that we would stumble on this atrocious new program from Fox called “The Mick” is low, but I’ve got to say I think I saw ads for it during a bowl game.  It looked terrible, and it seems it is.  It inspires me to want to get rid of the TV someone gave us a couple of years ago.  Here are the problems with this new program, to air during the “family hours” of prime time:

And what exactly is “The Mick”?

It’s a “comedy” series featuring “Micky”, an irresponsible, foul-mouthed, cigarette-smoking alcoholic, pill popping woman who assumes guardianship of her spoiled niece and nephews.

It features unprotected teen sex, a child consuming quantities of birth control pills. Strong language (“b*tch,” “a$$,”) and crude sexual references are frequent, with kicking, screaming, and slapping.

And it’s airing right now in the “family hour”, when programming is supposed to be appropriate for any age.

But is this program “appropriate”?  Just listen to this:

  • Kids get slapped in the face repeatedly.
  • There is underage drinking, foul language, and drug use.”
  • Along with an incredible array of inappropriate sexual banter, and nasty talk.

And it gets even worse.  Mick lets her teenage niece have boys in her room, and smiles with approval when she hears banging coming from upstairs.

So is Mick a “cool aunt?”

Or is this twisted and warped entertainment – using kids to promote contraception, homosexuality, and transgenderism?

More from this site where you can sign a petition opposing the airing of this program:

Lindsay Kornick with the Media Research Center’s NewsBusters writes: “There is nothing decent about The Mick. Not the topic, not the characters, and most definitely not the humor.”

Little Boy in Dress Says It ‘Breezes on My V*****’ in Twisted Trailer for ‘The Mick’

Fox Comedy Features 6YO ‘Trans’ Boy Wearing Bondage Gag

I don’t know how effective this kind of opposition is. You’re probably better off telling Fox that, thanks to them, you’ve decided to cancel your cable/satellite/broadband subscription and won’t be viewing ANY programming, least of all theirs.

We always hear what a fallacy the slippery slope argument is, and, logically speaking, it can be, but this all started with short skirts and innuendo in the 60s, fell into more bawdy and controversial humor in the 70s, then descended into outright nudity, profanity, and immorality in the 80s and 90s.  Television programming is enormously powerful and has probably played THE key role in the advance of the sodomite and other perverse agendas – indeed, as the orchestrators of those agendas deliberately planned that to be.  The infamous book laying out the “gay agenda” in the late 80s – After the Ball – spoke of using TV and the movies to first normalize sodomy, and then so glorify it as to be in many senses viewed as superior to morally upright use of the marital faculties.  And so here we are today, with transgender 6 year olds wearing ball gags, for pity’s sake.  What a travesty.  All along, people have been pooh-poohed who warned that the steady decline in morality in broadcast media would lead to exactly what we see today, and we were all lectured by our cultural betters what fools such nattering nabobs of negativity were.

Couple this post with the previous one for a course of appropriate action, perhaps.

The Elites Got Their Scalp – Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns Brietbart February 22, 2017

While it may seem like a tempest in a teacup, or perhaps the well-earned and inevitable downfall of someone who created a name for himself by flaunting social (or elite) convention constantly and brazenly, I do have grave concerns over the rapid and seemingly near-total destruction of Milo Yiannopolous over the past two days.  He just announced his “resignation” from Brietbart a little while ago, but from what I have heard and read the resignation was forced and eagerly desired by some Brietbart staffers who had grown annoyed at Milo’s popularity and antics.  His lucrative book deal has been cancelled.  He claims he has many new projects in the works, but his name has probably been permanently sullied by this “high tech lynching,” to quote Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

For those unaware of what I am discussing, videos were published, first on sites very closely linked to several high-power establishment Repubniks, containing highly edited statements from Milo Yiannopolous – videos recorded many months to a year+ ago –  that gave the appearance that he either supported, apologized for, or had some sympathy for pedophilia.  When it was shown that his words were being completely twisted, slightly less edited versions were released that made it appear that Milo was at least of questionable judgment on this matter.  Milo maintains he was speaking of personal experience and that he is a bitter opponent of pedophiles.

I have had many thoughts and been rather conflicted about all this.  First of all, this is obviously a carefully engineered takedown of someone who was a rising threat to the dominant uniparty elites.  The offending comments were made long ago and were the “juiciest” things that hundreds of thousands of dollars of oppo research could find.  And they were definitely not good. I think it’s confirmed now that Milo’s perversion is not an act and that it seriously affects aspects of his judgments, and not in a good way.

Amazingly, as all this has developed, it seems the Novus Ordo church played a significant role in Milo’s downfall, and I don’t mean just this week’s developments.  Assuming he is being truthful, Milo was first exposed to the sodomite lifestyle by an English Catholic priest.  That was his first “experience,” when he was 13.  What a tragedy.  What a scandal.  Even more incredibly, very few people have even batted an eye at this revelation.  “Oh yes another priest raped and morally ruined a young boy, yawn……”  I mean, that’s’ been the overall reaction.  That the Church has been involved in the moral corruption of a young boy yet again, something which not only ruined him but likely his entire family……..it makes me want to throw up.  And yes I know this went on before VII, but VII did not materialize from a vacuum. The very fact there were perverts of this type corrupting the priesthood was a significant factor in the phenomenon we call Vatican II even coming into being.

But this revelation brings two very important points to the fore: one, those who suffer childhood sex abuse are never quite right again.  Their ability to judge certain moral matters, especially those related to their own sexuality, are almost always forever compromised by the violent taking of their innocence. Secondly, a great many sodomites are sodomites because they were abused by men at a very young age.  Thus, this entire sequence of sorry events is not entirely surprising.

That is to say, I agree quite a bit with Sargon’s analysis below, which, while generally apologizing for Milo, admits that he probably had to turn his abuse into a “good thing” to mentally and emotionally deal with such unimaginably deep and hurtful wounds (LANGUAGE WARNING):

I’ll add a few more thoughts, sort of randomly.  First of all, the various ages of consent in differing nations are more or less arbitrary.  It’s 16 in England, 14 in Germany, generally 17 or 18 in the US,  etc.  Of course there is no such thing in muslim countries, where young boys are systematically abused with societal and religious approval and girls as young as 8 or 9 are sold as “brides.”

Is the US with relatively high ages of consent more moral?  But wasn’t Saint Elizabeth of Hungary married at age 14?  In fact, throughout the Age of Faith, the great and high Middle Ages, marriage at such ages was routine.  Of course, people generally died much younger, too, but I don’t think 13th century Spain or 11th century Italy was less Christian or less moral than these United States, or anywhere in the world today.  Not that I think such is appropriate today, nor would I want that for my 6 daughters.  I am merely stating that all these things are really just conventions and are almost wholly arbitrary.

The other things is, Milo is right, those who are carrying out this attempted destruction are not doing so out of moral outrage.  They are doing it to take out a target they don’t like.  The real target is not Yiannopolous.  It’s Steve Bannon, and more importantly, Donald Trump.  Milo was, whatever one may think of him, energizing an entirely new generation towards conservative/libertarian/populist beliefs, and there was a very strong cross-over between the thousands of kids who braved insult and injury to hear Milo speak on college campuses and support for Trump.  He was also, like Trump, extremely effective at bulldozing into oblivion the cultural marxist structures in the academia, media, heck, in the very language, which are such powerful tools of the Left.  He had been almost immune to criticism, with his “high on the victim pyramid” lifestyle and devil may care nature.  Until now.

My concern is that if the elite media complex/entrenched political powers can do this to a Milo Yiannopolous or a Mike Flynn, they can do it to any of us.  There has been a recent spate of what seem like vengeful attacks from the old media on the new, with targeted takedowns of rising new media personalities.  For some analysis of how and why this is happening, I think this is spot on (again, language warning).  And, of course, we have seen the media-government complex deign to destroy average Joes and Janes for exceedingly trivial sins against the sexular pagan orthodoxy on a number of occasions, from cake bakers in Oregon to photographers in New Mexico to bed and breakfast owners in Vermont to florists in Washington.  This is about power, and maintaining a narrow, undeserving oligarchy in the power and riches which it has arrogated to itself.  To me, it’s all part of a broader reaction against the little people who got a little too uppity and actually exercised their rights in a way the elites find annoying.

Having said all that, Milo largely did this to himself.  I’d hate to have every off-hand or “boozy” (his words) comment I’ve ever made microscopically analyzed and held up for all the world to see, but that’s also what goes with the territory.  The old media and entrenched political powers are not nice people and have no scruples in destroying anyone they perceive as being in their way, or simply annoying.  Heck, it’s practically a sport to these people.  Milo should have known, having already experienced several attempted “lynchings” for his blasphemies against the state religion of sexular pagan cultural marxism.  I’m sure he’ll be back in some fashion, but he’s been permanently damaged by this, which takes away another important defender and ally from Trump.

I expect this to become far more cruel and ugly as we go along.  They want to destroy all those who publicly support Trump and ultimately go after him.

Great Rebuke of Hollyweird by One of Their Own February 17, 2017

Robert Davi is a name many people may not remember, but his face would likely be immediately recognized by any who grew up in the 80s or 90s.  He played the bad guy or a character actor in a wide variety of movies from Goonies to License to Kill to Die Hard.  A man who had a bit of a troubled youth (hardly rare in this day), as he has aged he has become an increasingly devout Catholic and an outspoken conservative.

He gave the response below to Meryl Streep’s tirade against Trump’s limited travel ban (nearly identical to one Obama had implemented years ago), and it’s beautiful.  He’s exactly right, it’s time for Hollywood to stop with the words and make with the action, and start opening up their awards shows, banquets, private parties, and even homes to illegal immigrants and muslim “refugees:”

I have recently been pondering President Trump’s executive action with regard to our nation having extreme vetting and our immigration policy finally being enforced. It has pained me deeply to see such a violent reaction to something that, to my mind, makes absolute common sense.

Let me begin by saying that I am from a family of immigrants that came to this country for a better life. They came to the US “legally,” assimilated, integrated, and learned English to the best of their ability, and demanded we speak it. As we all know, we live in a time in which there are forces who wish to destroy our way of life…….

……..We have recently heard from a plethora of Hollywood stars on this issue — Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro, Ashley Judd, Madonna, major agencies, musicians, singers and even the indomitable Shia LaBeouf. After much prayer on this issue, I must now stand in solidarity with all of my Hollywood elite brethren. They are right! The rest of you are wrong!

It is now in this spirit that I make an appeal to all in Hollywood and the media for us to use the Oscars to take a stand for the entire world to see and hear. It is time for Hollywood to lead the way.

I propose that Meryl Steep, Chelsea Handler, Richard Gere, Robert DeNiro, Christoph Waltz and others lead an Oscar first: let’s do away with the rules, barriers, and tickets to the Oscars and after-parties, such as the swanky Vanity Fair party or the Weinsteins’ star-studded affair. I ask all migrants, all illegal immigrant criminals and all un-vetted refugees to converge on Hollywood to come to the Oscars and all the after-parties, even those held at the mansions or the Chateau Marmont or anywhere else. After all, we in the Hollywood community want to show all Islamic extremists that we have love in our hearts — and what better way to do that than by inviting them along on our most important night?

It’s time the walls and electronic security gates come down. There are roughly 3,600 seats to the Oscars; we should have at least 2,500 seats reserved for illegal aliens, refugees and migrants, or maybe even more. [And bring ’em right in off the desert or aircraft.  No showers, no makeovers, show the world the reality of today’s burqa-clad Arabic screaming “refugee” and the man who spent 5 days crossing barren desert with only 8 women to rape along the way for relief.  Let him keep that knife he used for “hunting”, too] For those celebrities skipping the ceremony, each should invite at least 100 illegal aliens, refugees or migrants to come to their home to watch the Oscars with them. The Academy and the Vanity Fair people should also get the 150 criminals who have recently been deported from Los Angeles and bring them to the show as honored guests.

I find it curious that when President Obama did the same exact thing — and more — in terms of enforcing the law on illegal immigration, the Hollywood elite were silent. Why were they silent then, but are so vocal now when President Trump is doing basically the same thing? Is Hollywood racist? Why — when Christians are being slaughtered in Syria, Iraq, and other places in the Middle East — is Hollywood silent?

Of course, the people that wish death upon Christians, Jews, gay people and the West are greeted with open arms by the elite in Hollywood — so why can’t they come to our Oscar parties?

Additionally, I am now pleased to announce that Hollywood and the recording industry no longer require the protection of the Men in Blue at any of their events! We do not need a country of laws; only a country of illegal immigrants, refugees and migrants. How dare we ignore the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”

So now, we ask you all: please come to the Oscars on February 26th at the Dolby Theater on Hollywood Boulevard. We welcome you to our homes with open arms and love in our hearts. Together, let us celebrate the Progressive left and its policies, which have helped make blue collar America Tired, Hungry, and Poor.

And the Oscar goes to…

 

With love in my heart,

Robert Davi

That was awesome.  Good for him.

 

Texas Lt. Gov. Tells NFL to Buzz Off Over Transgender Bathroom Interference February 17, 2017

Many people, even Texans, are not be aware that by far the most influential/powerful office in Texas state government is that of Lieutenant Governor.  The Lieutenant Governor sets the legislative agenda and has a powerful rule-making position in the state senate.  The office of governor is much more of a figurehead position that holds only limited powers, the ability to veto legislation being probably the foremost of these.

With that in mind, it is significant that legislation was proposed last month for the upcoming legislative session that would allow private enterprises to set their own policies with regard to this insane “let’s let deranged grown men use the same bathroom as little girls” issue that came to the fore last year under heavy pressure from the Obama administration.  Schools and some other public entities would be required to maintain single-sex restrooms.

Shortly after the most recent Super Bowl, which took place in Texas, the NFL decided to huff and puff over this grievous offense to their increasingly radical left-wing sensibilities.  An NFL official threatened that should the bill pass, the NFL would block awarding future Super Bowls to the state.  Many noted the irony of the timing – they only spoke out after the Super Bowl occurred.

Was Lt. Governor, a stalwart pro-lifer, going to be swayed by this attempted influence?  No, no he was not:

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told the National Football League to “get out of politics” and “not tell states what their public policy is” Wednesday after the NFL warned the state about moving forward with a transgender bathroom bill.

Just one week after the NFL held the Super Bowl in Houston, league spokesman Brian McCarthy issued a statement advising the state of Texas to carefully consider whether or not to pass Senate Bill 6, also known as the Texas Privacy Act. The bill, which was proposed in January, allows businesses to choose their own bathroom policies while prohibiting schools from allowing students to use bathrooms or locker rooms whose specified gender does not match their biological sex.

“The NFL needs to get out of politics. They need to stick to their business,” Patrick said Wednesday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “Does [NFL Commissioner] Roger Goodell, who didn’t care about people not respecting the national anthem, who took a while to come down on domestic violence — does he support boys and girls showering together in the 10th grade? Is that what the NFL is for?”

Although the bill was proposed in January, the NFL conveniently waited until the Super Bowl occurred in Texas a month later before issuing its political statement……..

……….But because the NFL is not a school, the Texas Privacy Act would allow the league to institute its own bathroom policies as it sees fit……

 ……”We’re a free enterprise state. If a business wants to be as stupid as Target and run off their business and see their stock drop 25 percent, let them do it,” Patrick said, referencing Target’s decision last year to announce that its patrons could use whichever restroom they wished. [Nice. Thank you.]
“We say that no school can have a policy that boys and girls share showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms. So the NFL thinks that’s discriminatory?” Patrick said. “If Roger Goodell is worried about our bill, then why doesn’t he announce that next season every stadium in the NFL is going to allow men in the ladies’ room? I don’t think that would fly with any of the NFL owners. The NFL needs to just stand on the sideline and not tell states what their public policy is.”
Well, should the legislature follow through and pass this bill as is generally expected, Texas can descend, along with North Carolina, even further into that basket of irredeemable deplorables that are so hated.
Here’s an idea – if we’re so rotten and evil, why not just let us leave and go our own way?

Tucker Carlson Brilliantly Lets Leftist Riot Leader (and school teacher) Hang Herself with Her Own Words February 16, 2017

This has been around quite a bit, but since I have almost no time to post I’ll go ahead and run with it.

What a hateful example of humanity.  I am actually not in the slightest surprised that this unhinged, fascist leader of violent riots is a school teacher.  As reader TT notes, she is the ultimate advertisement for homeschooling.  It is unsurprising given the unthinking, feelz-dominated, immature, ignorant propagandized product the public schools are turning out en masse.  Certainly there are exceptions, but this creature Yvette Felarca destroys herself as the very incarnation of the very things she alleges to decry.

I’ve never seen a more perfectly realized example of leftist projection of their own faults and evils onto others:

Fascism is committing violence and organizing others to commit violence, as she commits violence and organizes others to do so.  So she also gives perfect evidence of most Leftist’s perfect lack of self-awareness. Hypocrite, much?  What should we expect from people who are passionately committed to the demonic slaughter (and offering) of millions of innocent babies a year?

In reality, at all of Milo’s events where violence has occurred, that violence has been perpetrated overwhelmingly, almost exclusively, by leftist opponents of Milo and his fans.  The primary bit of evidence of supposed violence against leftist opponents of Milo – a man being shot outside a talk given at the University of Washington – was an act taken in self-defense after a man was beaten by Milo opponents, which the local police have seen as being so clear cut that the man who committed the shooting has not even been charged with a crime in hyper-liberal, institutionalized 2nd Amendment hating Washington state.

No one on the right is calling for the mass murder of millions of people, but the fact that this chillingly calm woman believes such is occurring gives me great concern, as I have to wonder if she is not yet again projecting her personal desires onto others.  When you start tarring millions of people as Nazis, the climate is being created for mass violence against them.

And Milo – whatever he is, whether you like him or not – may be a provocateur, he may derive great pleasure in exploding the sacred cows of the Left, but his talks are actually extremely thoughtful, fact-filled, and persuasive.  It is most likely this woman who so plainly hates him has listened to more than a couple of 30 second soundbites of Milo’s talks.  But that doesn’t matter in the least, it is precisely Milo’s persuasiveness that makes him such a threat, which is why he and his followers must be destroyed at all costs.  Of course, telling kids they can’t have something is the perfect way to get them to want it even more, so this effort has already backfired.

There is no doubt in my mind that we are seeing an incredibly carefully orchestrated effort to destroy the Trump administration before it starts.  The furor over the minor and temporary travel restrictions on citizens of certain states, the firing of Mike Flynn engineered through the illegal and dangerous leaking of deeply classified resources, the delay in approving presidential appointments of eminently qualified people, and the ever-ready, instantaneous and media-saturated “spontaneous protests” against every action Trump takes, and every appearance of a Trump supporter, points to a detailed, well-funded, highly organized effort being directed by people with the means and resources to bring such things about.  This is the elite in full blown revolt over this election, and they are demonstrating they have absolutely zero concern over seeing innocent Americans injured or even killed if they happen to get in their way, or simply caught at the wrong place and the wrong time.

This is deeply disturbing stuff.  There hasn’t been such open opposition from the permanent (and thoroughly leftist) federal bureaucracy to a legitimately elected president in this country’s history.  Forget Flynn, do you think leftist protestors carrying blunt objects (banned from flight – and people were beaten inside airports with no security intervention) would be allowed to penetrate deeply into numerous airports without some kind of inside help?  That all looked arranged!

I’m running out of time but this is looking increasingly worse.  I don’t like where it appears things are headed.  If large numbers of people start to develop the sense that democracy has failed, that leaders they elected to institute changes/reforms are blocked by a self-serving, self-interested elite, the same elite that has openly broached the topic of violence in the streets by engaging in/encouraging it themselves……..well, situations like that do not tend to end happily.  I am far from the only one reading very troubling implications in all this.  And it’s likely only the beginning, the deep state/overstate whatever you want to call it has shown their hand, they mean not only to destroy Trump’s presidency, but to kill or jail him outright.

Hey, OT, but if you would, do me a good Catholic a solid and please pray for longtime reader BC, he comments occasionally but is facing a recurring medical issue that is not particularly life-threatening but thoroughly unpleasant and painful to recover from.
