Weekend Post: Everybody Has a Hometown

Headed to my hometown this weekend to spend time with my “ultraconservative family.” There will be some dining out at our surprisingly good small town Italian non-chain restaurant, also a brew pub I have heard very good things about, where I’ll be meeting up with a gay Libertarian I only know from the interwebs but seems like a cool guy. I am hoping to find the time to get some shooting in. Followed by a quick trip to another brew pub in the town where I went to college and the purchase of some very expensive imported cheese.

And the perfect traveling-to-the-hometown music for this weekend.

Leftists, Gay-Friendly Church Features Atheist Pastor

Posted by V the K at 10:30 am - April 28, 2016.
Filed under: Religion (General)

In a society where a seventy year old man with a penis can claim to be a brave and stunning woman, and the Secretary of Homeland Security actively opposes securing the nation’s borders, why not a minister who doesn’t believe in God?

There is not one mention of God during the 70-minute service at Toronto’s West Hill United church. Bibles are nowhere to be seen. The large steel cross – one of the few remaining religious symbols in this church – is hidden behind a cascade of rainbow streamers.

But that is perhaps to be expected in a church led by an avowed atheist.

“I do not believe in a theistic, supernatural being called God,” says Gretta Vosper, the United Church of Canada minister who has led West Hill since 1997. “I don’t believe in what I think 99.99% of the world thinks you mean when you use that word.” Tor [sic] her, God is instead a metaphor for goodness and a life lived with compassion and justice.

Vosper’s outspoken commitment to a seemingly clashing set of beliefs has prompted turmoil in the open-minded United Church of Canada. A progressive Christian denomination that began ordaining women in Canada 80 years ago and for decades has allowed openly gay men and women to lead ministries, the church has been left questioning its boundaries.

“I don’t believe in what I think 99.99% of the world thinks you mean when you use that word.”How Progressive do you have to believe that the Nature of God is subject to a vote?  That’s as dumb as believing that Climate Change can be settled by a vote.

How to Make Weak and Dependent Children

Posted by V the K at 8:04 am - April 28, 2016.
Filed under: Individuation

Pretty much just stealing this post from Doug M, and just adding that what he says applies to gay yewts as well; teaching them to be pussies and wait for someone else to stick up for them is not the answer to bullying. But it is an effective way to create a generation completely dependent on external validation, conformity, and dependence on Authority Figures.

So, their “solution”? Turn to strangers at a bus stop. Cuz they’re niiiicer? Then they top that: a little girl ought to turn to strange men because 1] she cannot possibly just walk away and wait for a bus alone [??!?] or 2] she cannot possibly find within herself the resources to mock back at the other girls.

Think about a situation where a boy is challenged to fight and just rolls up in a whimpering little ball [as boys are being trained to do]: he’ll be taunted and smacked until the rest lose all interest. It doesn’t address the situation whatsoever: it merely marks the rolled-up boy as prey — both in the minds of others and in his own mind. If ya can’t handle it as a 3rd grader — or a 7th grader — howinhell are ya gonna handle it as an adult?

Along the same line, this girl is modeled as just siting there and taking it. Before running away to be with other people — inappropriate people — to salve her ‘wounds’.

How is that going to prepare her for a lifetime of other people challenging her — of Life challenging her — sometimes nicely, sometimes meanly? How will she develop the inner resources to judge her own behavior? Or will she be forever dependent on the kindness of strangers?

I notice that a lot of the “bulling” talk was the two girls quoting some un-named “Others” who said the mean things; as if that gave it more weight.

How about teaching a gurl to ask — or even think — “Why are you so interested in what *I’m* doing? What do you care if I read or wear make-up? I must be pretty important if that gets you all worked up!”

But no. The goal seems to be teaching children [future adults, yanno] to give up, give in, be passive, not even think of defending themselves, not even agree with their own preferences / ideas enough to defend them, not even think enough of their own persons enough to defend themselves. The key is it teaches them to give more weight to the opinions of Others than to their own. To give more credence to Social Pressure and .Gov Regulations than to their own researched and considered Values.

If everybody did that, who would make the decisions?

Leftist: You Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Defend Yourself From Criminals Because It Isn’t Fair

Posted by V the K at 7:39 am - April 28, 2016.
Filed under: Gun Control

According to the Huffington Post, it should be illegal for you to defend yourself because it denies “justice” to criminals who attack you. I am not making this up. (HT: AoSHQ ONT QOTD)

The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights.

– Justin Cormi in the Huffington Post which apparently does not have a drug testing policy

Contrary to Hillary Clinton and Michael Bloomberg, the Second Amendment doesn’t exist because the Founding Fathers were avid hunters and sportsmen. The Second Amendment codifies the right of the individual to defend himself from criminal individuals AND criminal Governments. Criminal individuals and criminal Governments have never been happy about that arrangements, hence the Democrat Party’s all-out assault on the Second Amendment.

The Triumph of Democratic Socialism

I imagine if you’re a Bernie Sanders supporter (Sandernista), a two-day work week sounds pretty sweet; or maybe like too much effort. (“Two whole days? But my teachers said I was SPECIAL!”)

The socialist administration began imposing a four-hour daily blackout around the country this week to save electricity. Then, Maduro announced that millions of officials will now work only Mondays and Tuesdays, taking the rest of the week off in a bid to save electricity.

Electricity shortages in the country with largest proven reserves of oil in the world. Socialism is amazeballs.

Some Venezuelans complain that the country is starting to resemble the dystopian series “The Hunger Games,” in which districts suffer for the benefit of a heartless capital city.

And the five richest counties in the Unites States are those surrounding Washington DC. We’re feeling the Bern already.

A Belgian Minister has warned… told… warn-told his countrymen that Mohammedans will soon be the majority, and they better learn to live with it.

Speaking at the EU Parliament, Mr Geens said: “In Europe, very shortly we’re soon going to have more practising Muslims than practising Christians.”

“That is not because there are too many Muslims, it is because Christian are generally less practising¿ Europe does not realise this, but this is the reality.

Mr Jambon then added: “I’ve said a thousand times, the worst thing we can do is to make an enemy of Islam. That is the very worst thing we could do.

Congratulations, gay Eurotopians. The Left Wing political parties you have mindlessly supported for decades opened the door to mass immigration of Mohammedans. Despite the happy-talk of left-wing politicians, they do not share your values. Even before they become an outright majority, once Mohammedans become a more valuable political constituency by weight of numbers than LGBT’s… well…. things aren’t going to be so good for you guys.

Foreign Gay Dude’s Murder Is of Little Political Value to the American Gay Left

Posted by V the K at 7:58 am - April 27, 2016.
Filed under: Gays in Other Lands

In Bangladesh, a US Government employee who was editing a magazine for LGBT folk was murdered by a mob.

A group of assailants stormed the home of Xulhaz Mannan, a staffer for the U.S. Agency for International Development, stabbing him and a friend to death, police told The Daily Star. Mannan was a senior editor of Roopbaan, the first gay rights magazine in the country.

The government of Bangladesh condemned Monday’s slayings, as well as other killings of secular bloggers in recent months, and blamed it on incitement by the country’s Islamist political opposition.

However, this particular murder is not politically useful to the left because there is no way for it to be used as a cudgel to bully American Christians into submission. So, it’s going to be a big, “So what? It didn’t happen in my country. Who the f–k cares?” to all the people on the left who go into fits of outrage when an American Christian declines to participate in a gay wedding by serving cake or giving up their house. Or, for that matter, when a tranny has to use the bathroom that corresponds to their chromosomes.

Christina Hoff Sommers, Milo Yiannopulous, and Steven Crowder walk into a bar tried to give a talk on the value of Free Speech at the Massachusetts Asylum at Amherst. Apparently, the talk was so outrageous that it caused Chris Farley to rise from the dead, dress up like hipster Lena Dunham and scream obscenities at them.

Also, Melissa Click — who was fired from the Asylum of Missouri after threatening students with violence for trying to ask questions of #BlackLivesMatter protesters — now whines that the only reason she was fired was because she’s a white woman. (She’s sort of right, the Asylum’s Chancellors wouldn’t have dared fired a black woman no matter how outrageous her behavior.)

“This is all about racial politics,” she said in a profile published in The Chronicle of Higher Education. “I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

In the fawning profile of Click in the Chronicle, Click says that even though she may have gone too far, it should be all right, because Social Justice. She is proud of her involvement in what she thinks was a legitimate protest against systemic institutional racism.

Never mind what she was really involved in was an overhyped temper tantrums over relatively minor “racial incidents” of highly dubious provenance.

 

 

Feeling the Bern in Venezuela

Filed under: Politics abroad

In 1999, Venezuela was taken over by a Socialist, Hugo Chavez, who promised that he would punish big corporations and redistribute wealth to “the people” to provide health care, education, infrastructure, and even out income inequality. (Sound familiar?) The American Left cheered. Celebrities like Sean Penn and Danny Glover praised his Democratic Socialist economic measures. Chavez systematically nationalized the oil, banking, agricultural, food distribution, telecommunications, and power industries in Venezuela; because running them as social democratic communes would eliminate “greed” and give the people lower cost goods and services. The American Left praised him for “democratizing” the Venezuelan economy. When Chavez shut down opposition TV, radio, and newspapers the American Left defended it as necessary to protect the Revolution.

The American Left likes to pretend now that Venezuela isn’t a real example of Social Democracy; but up until the economy collapsed (as every sensible person knew it would) they were Chavez’s biggest cheerleaders, as the links above (or any Google search) shows.

When Hugo Chavez died, he left behind a personal fortune of nearly $4 Billion. Just sayin’

Anyway, the real legacy of Hugo Chavez is that the country with the second largest oil reserves in the Western Hemisphere can’t even keep the lights on.  But, Hey, it’s not their fault, you guys.

(Venezuelan President) Maduro blames the collapse on an “economic war” by capitalists.

Actually, it’s the economic war *on* capitalists that caused your problems, comrade.

Last week, his government said it was shifting its time zone forward by 30 minutes to save power by adding half an hour of daylight.

Um, yeah, it doesn’t actually work like that. But it takes a Social Democrat to be delusional enough to believe that they can mandate thirty minutes of sunlight by law.

Comrades forever.

Comrades forever.

Millennial Epsilon Male Appropriates Menstrual Cycle

What a loser; not only has his chick Friend-Zoned him, she’s sharing her periods with him.

George Fellowes is a 22-year-old university student and believes he gets what he describes as “a male period”. He says he’s so close to his best friend and flatmate Amber-May Ellis that he gets cramps when she comes on each month. And it’s become so bad that at times he’s had to take sick days. Speaking to Newsbeat, George explains: “I think it’s a psychological thing because we’re so close, we feel the same emotions.” Over the past three years he says “it’s been like clockwork every month” and he has similar symptoms to females. “I get pain in my lower abdomen and in the groin area. I get super moody, really erratic and angry with most of my friends. “I also get emotional. I’m not really one for a cry but during that time of the month I’m an emotional wreck.”

I agree, buddy, you are an emotional wreck.

Once Again, We Are Bullied by Leftists to Indulge the Whims of Five-Year-Olds

Filed under: Transgender Issues

Attention-seeking nutjobs in Minnesota are suing their school district and insisting that schools begin Transgender Indoctrination in Kindergarten.

Parents of a 5-year-old “transgender child” have filed a complaint against a St. Paul charter school, alleging it failed to protect him from bullying and refused to teach all the students their preferred transgender-awareness curriculum.

David and Hannah Edwards, whose child was born a boy but now thinks he’s a girl, has filed with the city’s Department of Human Rights, claiming their child “wasn’t able to take full advantage of Nova’s educational opportunities because of her gender identity and expression. This violated her rights.”

And as we all know, five-year-olds are eminently capable of making serious, life-altering decisions and they should be completely indulged if they want to be a little girl instead of a little boy… or that matter, if they want to be a fairy princess or a magic rainbow unicorn. And not only must they be indulged, but everybody else’s life must be completely reordered in order to accommodate their gender dysphoria.

Tyranny of the Selfish, Dumb, and Mentally Ill

A Special Snowflake of the “Non-Binary” variety whined to Preezy Obama that it and people like it “literally have no rights.” Jazz Shaw responds.

Wait… you “literally have no rights?” I realize this took place in England and we have no control over that, but the parallel to America is being widely cited in the media and she specifically referenced North Carolina. So at least in our country, exactly what rights are you being denied as a “non-binary” person? Our rights in this country are not gender specific, just as they aren’t race specific or bound to your religion, your height, your weight or anything else. The only ones I can think of where there’s even a question are marriage (which isn’t a “right” but has already been taken care of in the Supreme Court) and bathrooms, which do not fall under the Bill of Rights, but rather common decency.

Is someone beating you up or otherwise harming or threatening to harm you because of your “non-binary” status? That’s already against the law, and it’s equally illegal to beat up all of the boring old “binary” citizens as well. Are you being silenced by the government or barred from attending the church you belong to? Is someone telling you that you can’t own and carry a gun? (Okay, that last one is probably true depending where you live, but trust me… it’s not just you.) So what are these “rights” that you are being denied on the basis of your “non-binary” or “transgender” status or whichever of the rest of the 58 new gender definitions Facebook offers that you picked?

Derek Hunter at Townhall suggests that the reason there is a massive social obsession with whether people who are confused about their sexual identity should be allowed to barge into whatever bathroom they feel like is because having solved all the major problems of society… nobody is going hungry, nobody is really impoverished, nobody has to go without some sort of shelter … all we’re left is fights over triggers and microaggressions.  There is some truth in that, but I think the other half is that our real problems… crushing national debt, fiscal unsustainability, economic decline, triumphalist Mohammedanism… are problems whose solutions are difficult and politically incorrect. It’s more advantageous for politicians to gin up phony baloney problems like transgender bathrooms, or the wage gap, or “climate change” that are easier to manipulate.

Furry Rights

Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs

There are people who identify as fuzzy cartoon animals; should businesses be required by law to provide them with litter boxes.

Though the media tends to cover furries, people who participate in the subculture interested in fictional anthropomorphic animal characters, with a detached sense of amusement, the actual community is as diverse and complex as any other. A new documentary “Fursonas” examines the subculture by exploring the various participants and factions within the community, as well as the public’s perception of them and various attempts to control their image. Part of the film follows Boomer, an androgynous furry who sought to legally change his name to Boomer The Dog and disgruntled much of the community for giving them a bad image. The film tells a universal story of identity and community by turning its eye at specific fandom, approaching it with respect and gentle humor.

Truthishly, even though I appear to be a cis-gendered male, I actually identify as a Lockheed L-1011. I demand that businesses be required to build hangars to accommodate my maintenance needs; and you’re a hater if you disagree.

Prince passed away yesterday; you may not have been aware of this if you were in a coma or … no, there is no way you missed this news unless you were in a coma. I’m pretty sure deep in the bowels of solitary confinement in the Colorado SuperMax Terrorist Prison, Zacarias Moussaoui was heard mournfully humming “Raspberry Beret.” The news of Prince’s death even temporarily took the National Crisis of Transgender Bathrooms off the top of the hour news for a brief period.

It made me think of the other 1980′s icons who are getting up into AARP territory and … well, what’s going to happen when they die? Let’s speculate, won’t you?

  • Bruce Springsteen will die someday, and then he will boycott Heaven when he discovers they don’t let dudes use the Ladies’ Room there.
  • Bono will die someday, and wouldn’t you love to be at the Pearly Gates as he lectures God about the plight of African children.
  • Morrissey will die someday, and finally manage not to be a pompous ass for five minutes.
  • Madonna, I can just see her having herself taxidermied… perhaps using Japanese sex robot technology … and put on exhibit like Lenin or a venerated Catholic Saint… so she can still get attention after she’s dead. Judging by recent pictures, she has already begun this process.
  • Cyndi Lauper, I am pretty sure when she dies, a lot of people are going to say, “Wasn’t she already dead? I feel like she died already.” Then, they will go to wiki and say, “Huh, I guess I must have been thinking of someone else. Well, she’s dead now.”
  • Boy George probably will not require a whole lot of embalming, I’ll leave it at that.

Radical Left’s Lawfare Strategy Suffers a Setback

Posted by V the K at 7:37 am - April 22, 2016.
Filed under: Democratic Dirty Tricks

California’s Radical Left Attorney General (and future senator) Kamala Harris (one of the team of 20 Radical Democrat Attorney Generals seeking to prosecute Climate Change skeptics for pursuing science instead of “science”) has been rebuked by a Federal Court for her scheme to expose conservative donors to intimidation, harassment, and violence.

TL:DR version: Harris wanted to use tax records to release the names of people who donated to conservative organizations so that the Democrats and their radical left allies could brownshirt them. The court said, nunh-unh, and issued an injunction barring them from doing so, finding that it’s still illegal (for now) for politicians to use state power to incite mobs against their political opponents.

During the course of trial, the Court heard ample evidence establishing that AFP, its employees, supporters and donors face public threats, harassment, intimidation, and retaliation once their support for and affiliation with the organization becomes publicly known. For example, Lucas Hilgemann, Chief Executive Officer of AFP, testified that in 2013, the security staff of AFP alerted him that a technology contractor working inside AFP headquarters posted online that he was “inside the belly of the beast” and that he could easily walk into Mr. Hilgemann’s office and slit his throat. (Hilgemann Test. 2/23/16 Vol. I, p. 57:2–14). That individual was also found in AFP’s parking garage, taking pictures of employees’ license places. (Id. at 57:15–23). Another witness and major donor, Art Pope, testified about an AFP event in Washington D.C. in 2011. Mr. Pope testified that after protestors attempted to enter the building and disrupt the event, they began to push and shove AFP guests to keep them inside of the building. (Pope Test. 2/24/16 Vol. II, p. 47:7–15). Mr. Pope attempted to help a woman in a wheelchair exit the building; however the protestors had blocked their path. (Pope Test. 2/25/16 Vol. I, p. 21:20–22:12). Once they finally exited the building, they still had to go through a hostile crowd that was shouting, yelling and pushing. (Id. at 22:22–23:2). At another event in Wisconsin, after speaking to a crowd of AFP supporters, Mr. Hilgemann was threatened by a protestor who used multiple slurs and spit in Mr. Hilgemann’s face. (Hilgemann Test. 2/23/16 Vol. I, p. 48:12–49:15). Again, at another event in Michigan where an AFP tent was set up, several hundred protestors surrounded the tent and used knives and box-cutters to cut at the ropes of tent, eventually causing the large tent to collapse with AFP supporters still inside. (Id. at 50:16–51:25).

The Court also heard from Mark Holden, General Counsel for Koch Industries, who testified that Charles and David Koch, two of AFP’s most high-profile associates, have faced threats, attacks, and harassment, including death threats. (Holden Test. 2/23/16 Vol. II, p. 30:17–35:13). Not only have these threats been made to the Koch brothers because of their ties with AFP, but death threats have also been made against their families, including their grandchildren.
