Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachthani

“My God, my God.  Why have you forsaken me?”  Jesus’ penultimate words on the cross.  But what do they mean, and why would God accuse Himself of forsaking Him?

Makes no sense when you look at it that way.  It is recorded in the New Testament that the people watching believed Jesus was calling on Elijah or Moses.  Theologians have been arguing about it for as long as there has been Christian theology.  No one understands it.

Well, maybe that is because they are looking at it from the wrong angle.   Jesus was being crucified in Jerusalem, by the people who claimed to be His chosen ones.  The people who called him ‘God’.  Bu they had rejected Him when he walked among them.  So now, there he was on the cross being crucified, and he says to them ‘You called me God.  So why have you now forsaken me?”

It was a lament and an accusation.  Think about it.

Snowflakes…

27603-Rude-Critical-People

I need to address a topic from the flip side once again.  This time, it is the concept of sensitivity to criticism, and all of the other things that have come together to create ‘snowflake culture’.  Conservatives like to believe that there is something inherently wrong with anyone taking exception to what they, the conservative right, deem justifiable criticism.  If such a person expresses upset, hurt, or indignation at the criticism received, then that individual can only be a liberal wuss.

The problem, however, lies in defining what justifiable or ‘constructive’ criticism actually is, when it is appropriate to use it, and what the correct approach to it should be.  Sadly, many people these days have difficulty understanding the concept of boundaries insofar as what can and cannot be criticized, what should and should not be criticized, how far to go with criticism, and the importance of tone in its delivery.  Contrary to what they believe it is not okay, and it is not their ‘right’ to tell someone else that the shade of green they are wearing today makes them look nauseous.  Nor should the victim of their barbed tongue simply ‘suck it up’ and change into more complimentary clothes.  The same goes for a whole host of other things that many people these days believe falls under the category of ‘freedom of expression’.

One of the worst ideas bouncing round in people’s heads is that of  ‘tough love’, which is often used as an excuse for being direct, blunt, and unforgiving.  You don’t like your friend’s new hairstyle or significant other?  Then grab her/him by the arm, drag her/him off somewhere, and tell her/him what a lousy choice she/he has made.  After telling her/him this, just use the excuse that you are only doing it because you care, and you like seeing her/him making a fool of her/himself.  Behavior like that is not only way outside the ballpark of what anyone who actually cares would do, it is also socially inappropriate – and this where the problem began.  When people refuse to acknowledge that there are limits on what can be criticized, other people within striking range will end up being subject to endless brutalization at that person’s hands.

The same can be said of those people who refuse to show others respect unless it is ‘earned’.  The inverse is actually true: people deserve respect until they do something that proves they haven’t earned it.

It is important for everyone to understand that society created codes of civility in order to protect people from insensitive clods.  It is not simply a matter of people having to ‘suck it up’; it is about people not having to put up with being bludgeoned day in, day out by other people’s nastiness.  If things have now come so far that young adults are having meltdowns over insignificant ‘micro-aggressions’, it is because that code has been smashed to pieces in recent decades.  The elastic band has snapped and overcompensation is the result.  As a reaction to one section of society becoming increasingly rude and insensitive, another section has become increasingly obsessed with stamping out that rudeness and showing concern for people’s feelings.

That’s life / live with it.

The attitude of “that’s life / live with it” is often used as an excuse for the uncouth to behave in a mean or malicious manner, to the detriment of our society.  If everyone had the empathy needed to put themselves in another person’s shoes, then there would be no need of moral codes to govern our conduct when interacting with each other.  Since that is not the case, and because there are numerous individuals who get a sadistic pleasure out of the ‘cruel to be kind’ bandwagon, we have no choice but to create codes of conduct.  The right of one person to be mean, nasty, and insensitive to others does not override the rights of everyone else to go about their lives in a peaceful manner.  That is why every culture has developed its own set of social conventions.

Now to the ‘snowflakes’.  Is it normal, or even acceptable for them to behave as they do?  Ummm… no.  That is taking it way too far.  But they are the product of increasing rudeness in our society.  Their parents, their teachers, and other people around them have all had their own experiences with the rudeness and vitriol that is currently infiltrating every aspect of our lives.  They now see increasing incidences of bullying in their own children’s lives at schools, at parties, and on internet sites, and are concerned.  As parents, educators, social workers, etc… they want to do something to protect the young people under their care.  They also want society to return to a saner time, a time when people actually treated each other civilly.

The only way to get society back on track is, in fact, re-education.  That means teaching children the old rules of behavior, and having a zero tolerance policy towards uncivil behavior.  Etiquette needs to be reinstated, with penalties for anyone who feels it is their right to run stomping on other people’s sensibilities like a maddened rhinoceros.  Children need to be taught, in no uncertain terms, that it is rude to comment on things that are considered to be of a highly personal nature.  They need to learn to keep their opinions to themselves if nothing constructive can come of them, and to never use ‘constructive criticism’ as an excuse to tear someone else down.

Verbal abuse is one of the most painful things you can inflict on someone else.  Sad to say, much of what goes by the name of ‘criticism’ these days is little more than that.  This is the end result of loosening social constraints way too far, and the emphasis on ‘personal freedom’ over respecting and genuinely caring about others.  People have become so battered and bruised that they really do need safe-places to escape into.  As someone who endured verbal abuse throughout my childhood, I can vouch for the PTSD it leaves you with.  The ruder our society becomes, the more people will find themselves unable to cope.  That is something to be concerned about.  Unfortunately, people who believe they are saving the world by spewing venom at others are not going to listen to me, or anyone else.

Cain and Abel

I have spent a lot of time wondering about the story of Cain and Abel.  The question that keeps gnawing away at me is why God would have acted in such a cruel and unfair manner by rejecting Cain’s sacrifice, while accepting Abel’s.  There is no reason given.  None at all.  Was God simply favoring Abel?  Was Cain’s sacrifice somehow flawed?

I don’t think that either was the case.  The problem with the biblical text is that it does not explain the reason sacrifice was being offered in the first place.  Sacrifices were not random things that people did for no reason at all.  Some offerings were tithes, some were thank-offerings, made after divine help was received, and others were pleas for divine assistance.  The mistake I made was in assuming that Cain and Abel were offering up tithe-type offerings, and that Cain had offered something of poor quality.

That is where I believe I was completely wrong.  Tithe-type offerings were not even required at that point in scripture.  In fact, Cain and Abel’s offerings were the very first mentioned in the bible.  So the question people should be asking first, is ‘what was the reason for their offerings?’.  Once we know why the offerings were made, we can better theorize as to what happened, and why God rejected one while accepting the other.

My theory is this: both brothers made their offerings as part of a request for God’s assistance in a matter.  Perhaps both brothers were vying for the same thing, perhaps they were requesting different things.  What happened was that God agreed to provide Abel with whatever he requested, while refusing to provide Cain with his request.  Cain then became angry, first because God had refused him, and then because Abel had gotten what he asked for, when he, Cain had been refused.  The seeming unfairness of it ate away at Cain’s heart until it turned into jealousy and rage.  The next thing he knew, he lost it and killed Abel, probably during an argument of some sort.

I somehow don’t think Cain lay in wait for Abel, then murdered him in cold blood.  God showed him mercy, which I don’t think would have been the case if Cain had turned completely evil.

The burning question that remains is why did God refuse Cain’s request?  It is possible that Cain asked for something that was not beneficial to himself.  It might have been something that would harm him in the long run, but Cain could not see that.  If he and Abel were asking for the same thing, and only one could have it, it may have been that Abel was the one more suited to it.  Again, in the long run, Cain would not have benefited from it.

So God turned down Cain’s request.  That is what a rejected offering signifies: God has heard the request, and decided not to grant it.  Nothing more, nothing less.

So, those are my thoughts on a rather vague, but important passage.  It also clarifies a lot of other mumbo-jumbo that we come across later on in the New Testament about why God does not always respond to our prayers.  It even touches on Jesus’ words about a father not giving his son a serpent when the child asks for bread.  If the request is beneficial to the individual, God hears and grants it.  But if it isn’t, He will reject it.  It is not about favoritism, or capriciousness on God’s part, it is about the well-being of the individual.  Like the child in Jesus’ parable, the seeker may not know that the food he is begging for is tainted with poison; but the Father knows, and refuses to give him what is not good for him.

The moral of the story is not to fall into the trap that Cain did, even though God warned him what would happen if he did not put his resentment aside.

Before You Ridicule Social Justice Fanatics…

The most popular sport these days is liberal-bashing, and it is the actions of the liberals themselves that is making them an easy target.  However, it is not all right to simply dismiss their concerns simply because they have been wrapped up in asinine packaging.  Yes, it is like having to dig through vomit bare-handed in order to get to the legitimate concern, but it must be done before dismissing it all as paranoid nonsense.  Anyone calling themselves a scholar, or any sort of researcher, must look at the whole argument before ridiculing it.  Sadly, I have seen a number of such individuals doing just that: jumping on the ‘ridicule-the-SJWs’ bandwagon.  Some of them even hold chairs at universities.

They should know better, and it says a lot about academic thinking that they don’t.

I will admit, even I don’t believe that many of the SJWs having meltdowns over things people normally take in stride is in any way normal, or that these people can even be  considered ‘normal’ human beings.  There is something extremely wrong with how they handle disappointment, and how they relate to others, yet that does not mean there is no validity to their concerns.  When they are shrieking about the then candidate Donald Trump disrespecting womanhood, the concern at the core is the fact that he is backed by conservative and far-right interests that do not respect a woman’s right to live her life as she sees fit.  When they scream ‘nazi’, they are expressing concern over the willingness that they see on the right to give over personal freedoms to an authoritarian ‘volkish’ state, and so on… .

Initially, it may have seemed that the concerns were stupid.  Yet now, it seems that they may have been dead-on.  The right is, indeed, taking on the ugly overtones that characterized Nazism.  Anyone who comes from a family that actually experienced daily life in Europe at that time has probably been trained by their parents to recognize the warning signs – and I am not talking about people from Jewish backgrounds when I say that.  I am talking about Germans from German backgrounds, Italians from Italian backgrounds, French from French backgrounds, etc… . We know the signs, and we have concerns.  The insanity of the ‘lunatic left’ is doing damage to the credibility of people who see what is coming, but that does not change the fact that there is something to be concerned about.

I will say this to the far-/alt-right: you romanticize the rise of the right, and the nationalist state.  It was not like you picture in your rosy day-dreams.  People were not free to live their lives in volkish-communities, and women were not happily baking cherry pies for their eight children.  That is bull-piss and poppy-cock.

To the ‘classical liberals’ who have joined with the far-/alt-right, Pastor Martin Niemoller had this to say to you:

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Is the temporary applause from your new bed-partners worth what you’re ushering in?  You who are Jews, homosexuals, and women?  I say this because something big is coming, and you will be the first ones in line to feel its hatred.  The applause will stop and you will be quickly discarded.

Liberal hysteria explained to the ignorant

Liberals, sadly, allow their emotions to overtake their capacity for reason.  Nobody should be completely without empathy, however the SJWs and feminists out there have taken things to levels beyond the galactic.  I will now explain why this happens, and how, despite the claims of the conservative right to the contrary, the right suffers from the same blind-spots.

I am going to illustrate this with a real case: A woman stabs her husband to death.  During the course of the stabbing-spree, she pauses to tie him up and put her children to bed.  That done, she returns and continues to stab him.  By the time she is finished, she has stabbed him a total of 193 times, including slicing at his penis.  She claims she is a battered woman, and her actions were in terrorized self-defense.

Believe it or not, once the woman in question played the battered-woman card, people, mainly other women, jumped to her defense.  They claimed, and still claim, her actions were clearly those of someone who was terrified.  They think the jury in the case was wrong to convict her.

This is a prime example of the skillful use of the victim card.  Whether it can be attributed to a desire to abdicate personal responsibility, or simply suffering from bleeding hearts, the left loves nothing more than standing up for a perceived a victim.  Frame the crime in the proper terms, and they will see even the most sadistic of murderers in a sympathetic light.  All that is needed is to is to come up with a half justifiable reason and a sympathetic-seeming victim, and you will have many a liberal rushing to that person’s defense.  They mean well, and honestly try to see the good in everyone.

Liberals actively search for a victim in every scenario, or something else that mitigates the issue.  Because of this, they will take a more sympathetic stance on even the most horrific things – such as terrorism.  They feel terrorism is the result of the west bombing the shit out of helpless civilians abroad, and so it is something we have brought on ourselves and must be approached that way.  It is not that they believe terrorists are good people, it just that they can see a reason why jihadists would be pissed off at us.  They can therefore be manipulated fairly easily.  Parade a photo-gallery of sad-eyed, injured women and children in front of them, and they will turn into oozing balls of putty.

By the same token, they can be easily provoked to outrage.  Just show them pictures of the US army bombing innocent civilians, and they will become so outraged that their heads practically explode.

That said, the hard-hearted conservative right is not immune to this phenomenon, either.   The primary difference between it and the left is who it perceives as the victim, and what it takes to cover someone’s sins.  The right automatically looks for nobility and moral rectitude when balancing out someone’s shortcomings and justifying their acts.  A person with the veneer of an upstanding citizen will always be forgiven, provided their accuser comes from a less palatable background.

We can take as an example someone who is considered a pillar of the community, perhaps a preacher or a president.  This man happens to be a womanizer who carries on behind his long-suffering wife’s back, year after year.  Everyone knows he is a serial adulterer, but that’s all right, he does good works, donates to charities, and he’s freakin’ all-around great guy – except for that one minor detail.  He’s projecting the right image, framing his infidelities in the right way, as a family matter, and all is forgiven.  He’s not held up to the moral compass, even when one of his lady-loves dies in circumstances that may be a drug overdose, or may be something else.  Of course, this example is a composite picture, but I have to ask, why is the right so miffed at Clinton being a womanizing pig, while lauding JFK?  Probably because JFK is their hero.  But JFK treated women as obscenely as did Clinton.  JFK even passed on Marilyn Monroe to his brother once he was done with her.

Now take that attitude into the current climate of world-wide terrorism.  While the left gets hot under the collar seeing images of foreign women and children maimed and injured, the right has the same reaction when shown images of their own, ethnically and culturally, being maimed and injured.  You can work them into the same state of hysteria by using the correct images.  One, the left, has empathy with outsiders, while the other, the right, has empathy with members of their own clan.

Neither, as far as I can see, can put aside their biased emotional reactions long enough to address the actual issues of right and wrong.  Neither has the capacity for the type of true empathy that justice requires.  A man steals a loaf of bread because he is hungry, and the left demands forgiveness, while the right wants him strung up.  The truth is, the man had limited options, no one would hire him, and he had no way to earn money to eat.  But, the shopkeeper is also suffering from a loss.  Maybe the he, himself, does not make enough profit to feed his family.  Justice means helping the thief find a way to earn a living so that he can pay back the shopkeeper.  That also means someone has to be found who is willing to hire him, and chopping his hand off is only going to make that an even more difficult task.

The sympathetic nature of the left has definitely gone too far at times, to the point of seeming insanity, but there is a genuine concern for others at its core in most cases.  That people who claim to be scientifically minded dismiss that, without even questioning why the hornet’s nest has been so badly stirred up, only proves the very sad state our ‘intellectual’ and ‘scholarly’ communities have fallen into – and the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of most of these people.  It goes without saying that we need to take care of whose camp we choose to follow, because, put plainly, the vast majority of those claiming to be ‘intellectual’ and ‘scholarly’ these days are tiny emperors running around in non-existent clothing.

Ufology- Some Fun Ideas About Body Duplicates

Anyone who has dabbled in ufology, as well as many who haven’t, know about the infamous alien anal probe.  Nobody, to the best of my knowledge, has any explanation as to why aliens like probing humans anally.  The aliens, for their part, have a tendency to keep changing the story, depending on whom they happen to be kidnapping, and what they are probing at the time.  In general, however, it is pretty much agreed that what these extraterrestrial visiting kidnappers are doing is harvesting human genetics and tissues.

Though what sort of genetic materials they are hoping to find by rooting around up people’s anuses is still a complete mystery.

Cattle mutilations are another infamous alien predilection, and, again, the theories are rampant, but truth is thin on the ground.

One interesting theory, and I believe that it is probably the best of the best, is that these aliens are not innocently creating hybrid off-spring in order to keep their dying race alive, but are actually creating human clones, or fleshly bodysuits.  The late Karla Turner did some interesting research into UFO phenomena, and came up with ideas on the topic that have somehow gotten lost in the mists of time.  One important thing that she noted was the complete unreliability of  witness testimony.  She theorized that people’s memories of the events could not be counted on, as there was evidence that the aliens themselves implanted false memories.  Another theory that she came up with was the one I mentioned above: that the aliens were constructing human bodies out of parts taken from both their human abductees and the animals they had mutilated.  She reported several witnesses telling her that their alien captors had threatened to ‘replace’ them with duplicates that they had constructed of that individual.  One or two witnesses even reported being forced to watch as their duplicate went out into the world and replaced them for a few hours or days.

This theory is absolutely amazing, and could well explain the inexplicable.  Why do some people in high-profile positions suddenly start behaving in ways completely alien (pun intended) to the character they have shown thus far?  Could it be that they have been replaced by a duplicate version of themselves?  One created in an alien laboratory?

Take the most recent example of Bill Nye.  Suddenly, out of the blue, poof!, he’s turned into a raving proponent of bad science!  Could the real Bill Nye have been replaced?  And what about President Donald Trump?  Could he also have been replaced?  Or is he just an opportunistic businessman who goes wherever the money takes him?

If this is possible, and there are aliens working for their own, nefarious agenda, wouldn’t it make sense for them to simply replace respected scientists, doctors, politicians, and entertainers with clones, and then use the very respectability these individuals have acquired to lead everyone down the garden path?

It doesn’t stop there.  If the aliens really are creating hybrids and inserting them into our societies, wouldn’t these illegal aliens of an extraterrestrial sort be charged with inciting havoc and forcing changes in the moral and intellectual fabric of society in order to soften it up for the coming takeover?  Wouldn’t you expect them to act sort of like the SJWs of both the political/social left and the political/social right as we are now seeing?

In fact, if you dig into ufology, you will find that these ‘hybrids’ don’t consider themselves human at all, but aliens who have been put into human bodies in vitro.  A partly human fetus is created, and their alien ‘soul’ is inserted into it.  They are then born to human women.  A number of ‘indigo‘ children claim this heritage, though, of course, it has not been proven.  But do note the emphasis on ‘feeling’, instead of thinking, that these people claim.

The concerning thing in all of this is the warm welcome many groups are planning for the aliens, should they decide to reveal themselves to us.  Groups such as Dr. Steven Greer’s ‘Sirius Disclosure’ and CE-5 Initiative, are actively attempting to reach out and touch alien life.  Literally.  They claim to have perfected meditative techniques that enable them to psychically contact aliens, and even switch psyches with them so that the aliens can enter their bodies and experience this planet, while CE-5 members have the glorious opportunity to psychically experience the alien’s planet.

In other words, they are now psychically channeling these aliens.

Oh, yes.  Indeed.  And these days, aliens also walk through walls, take people bodily through walls during kidnappings, and perform many acts that we used to ascribe exclusively to ghosts and spirits.  They also outfit their victims with implants that effectively control the people who have them – and these implants have actually been found and removed from numerous people.

In the face of all this, it is the idea of body-duplicates that really intrigues me, because it could be an explanation as to why you suddenly don’t know a person anymore, and why decent, logical people suddenly go weird – just like Bill Nye.  Karla Turner interviewed a number of people who claimed to have been threatened with replacement by their alien-clone if they did not go along with the program, and who knows if that is not now actually happening?

By the way, if you are interested in ufology, please start with the likes of Karla Turner, and steer clear of Steven Greer and his alien-loving outreach.  As in all things pertaining to the supernatural, do not allowed yourselves to be used as a conduit through which a non-physical being communicates.  You are giving your body over to someone else, and giving them permission, bit by bit, to take it over for themselves.  Anything, any spiritual path that demands ‘channeling’ of this nature is up to no good that I can see.  Your body is the underwear your spirit wears.  Only a real pervert lets other people wear their underpants.

Self Deception and Giving Away Your Rights Out of Fear

One of the more incomprehensible things that people do – at least from my perspective – is watching horror films.  Why people enjoy being scared silly is beyond me.  It makes no sense.  Maybe there is some sort of an adrenaline rush, but it is an unpleasant one.  So why do people so love being scared?

Beats me.  I happen to be particularly sensitive to getting the crap scared out of me.  My parents and siblings actually liked watching horror films and television shows like ‘Night Gallery’.  While the television was on, I was under the table, trying to block my ears and not see all the scary stuff on the screen.  I’ve also been plagued by horrific nightmares my entire life, so being scared silly is something I have a lot of experience in, and something I really don’t like.  I have found that there are things to rightfully be afraid of, and things that make you behave in the stupidist, self-harming ways.

What I now see going on in the world around me is a case of the latter.

Fear-mongering, fear-porn, whatever you want to call it, people seem to love it to the point of addiction.  It is no wonder that they are now enjoying the thrill of scaring themselves silly over politics and world events.  The problem is that, through their fear, they are being manipulated without even being aware of it happening.

We are all aware of how 9/11 changed the world, and how terror ushered in an increased acceptance of authoritarianism in government.  Since that time, the assault on personal and political freedom has been unrelenting.  Then, seemingly simultaneously,  Erdogan unleashed the immigrant floodgates, and the political left went completely bat-shit crazy.

Two seemingly unrelated occurrences, or the German Sheppards set loose to herd the flock? 

Did the political left going bat-shit crazy over gender-identification, cultural appropriation, and Hillary Clinton have anything to do with the sudden influx of violent migrants into Europe?  Is there a correlation?  I believe that there actually is, and that this too is a way of herding everybody closer to the acceptance of authoritarianism.  If it isn’t intentional on the part of political planners, then it is one hell of a big bag of opportunity that has landed in the lap of the conservative/far-/alt-right.

Seeing the left go crazy has struck fear in the hearts of moderate liberals, and sent them scurrying for cover.  Guess where most of them have landed?  In the welcoming arms of conservatism.  It may be an uncomfortable fit for many of them, but it is a better fit than the utter lunacy of the tyrannical politically correct.

The truth is, most people are fed up at seeing how loose things have become.  Just yesterday, I was on a public bus where a woman had the audacity to breast-feed right in front of a group of high-school kids – boys among them.  When I say ‘right in front’, I mean directly in front of the kids.  That is not something I think teenage boys should be forced to witness while travelling home on public transit.   Another interesting thing that I also noticed yesterday, was an advertisement inside another bus encouraging people to call 911 and report inappropriate touching, voyeurism, and exhibitionism.  This is the first time I have ever seen such a thing, and it is an indication that people are getting fed up with what they’ve been expected to put up with.

The best way to explain what is happening is to liken society’s tolerance to the elasticity of a rubber band.  You can only stretch it so far before it either snaps in two and hits you in the face, or you have to let go the tension and allow it constrict back to normal size.  Knowing that, if you force society to the absolute limit of what it can tolerate, it will snap back in the form of a conservative revival.  Either that, or it will collapse into complete anarchy, and it is the fear of that anarchy which can be counted on to drive everyone, except the truly mentally unbalanced, towards a more conservative, authoritarian perspective.  Yes, we are being herded toward the right.

So, once the normal left has been nicely tenderized, it only remains to purge any stubborn remnants.   As we learned from Stalinist Russia, that can be done at a later date, once the power structure has cemented itself.

Now to the right, and Erdogan’s masterstroke

The political and social right has always been gung-ho on authoritarianism.  They love nothing more than a hierarchical structure in the home, the workplace, the government.  They cherry-pick biblical passages to put women in their ‘place’, and their air-headed womenfolk chirp the joys of baking pies at home, instead of becoming master chefs at 3-star restaurants.

How easy do you think it will be to get these guys go along with the program?  Hell, they practically wrote the thing!  All it will take is the right amount and sort of stimuli.  Turkey’s Erdogan, ever so eager to join the European Union, adds the needed kick in the pants by flooding Europe with rampaging migrants.  The sky starts falling on Chicken Little!  They look to the left, and there they see women-who-are-really-men-who-want-to-have-lesbian-relationships-with-underaged-girls!  They feel they must flee, and flee quickly, into the loving arms of questionable far-right political groups who, seeing an opportunity like no other to have come their way since WWII, ratchet up the anti-Islamic rhetoric and promise to close the borders nice and tight.

To help encourage voters to vote the right way – that is, for the candidate most likely to bomb the shit out of whomever they want, on their behalf – ISIS obligingly provides a pre-election terrorist attack (view: ‘This is a recipe for hideous disaster’ – John Pilger on Western arms deals with Saudi Arabia) .   And the lemmings all go running, not to the left-leaning candidate, but the one that advocates bigger bombs being dropped on the enemies of their nation.

The story of what happens when you vote for the right winger can be summed up in the immortal lyrics of Monty Python’s ‘Dennis Moore’:

Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Galloping through the sward
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
And his horse Concorde
He steals from the rich
And gives to the poor
Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Riding through the night
Soon every lupin in the land
Will be in his mighty hand
He steals them from the rich
And gives them to the poor
Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Dum dum dum the night
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Dum de dum dum plight
He steals dum dum dum
And dum dum dum dee
Dennis dum, Dennis dee, dum dum dum
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Riding through the woods
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
With his bag of things
He gives to the poor
And he takes from the rich
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Riding through the land
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore
Without a merry band
He steals from the poor
And gives to the rich
Stupid bitch

A Shame of the Worst Sort

I interrupt my work on an important blog post to bring you the images below.  Can you tell the difference between the two?  The first, of course, is the now infamous image of female Swedish government representatives wearing head-scarves during a meeting with Iranian government leaders in Iran.  The second is an image of Ivanka and Melania Trump wearing hideous head-things during a meeting with the Pope in Rome.

You will note something else also: In Iran, the women are wearing clothing that fully covers the body, jackets, cardigans, and … PANTS!!!  These clothes are also functional street wear in cooler climates.  If it was autumn in Stockholm, or in Moscow, there would be very little to note about the outfits.  This is important because there is nothing bizarre in what they have been forced to put on.  A woman could still function normally in these clothes, and, in cooler weather, be completely comfortable.

Now look at the second image, the one of the Trump women.  Look at Melania, a normally beautiful woman.  What she is wearing on her head is, from my perspective, a typical mandilli – a headscarf worn by Greek widows.  Her dress is black, and hideous, and also in the style of a Greek widow.  From what I know, Italians have very similar customs the Greek one, and so I also assume that this lovely, not-yet widowed woman has been forced to dress like a widowed Italian matron.  Ivanka looks like the anti-bride, that is, a woman who has mistaken a funeral for a wedding.

Which set of women has face the greater humiliation in their respective meetings?

All right, now let us look at something else.  In Iran, women go to university, work in high technology, in the media, in medicine and science.  Iranian women coming out of Iran tend to be extremely well educated in comparison to their western counterparts.  The husbands they are married to also tend to be love matches.  I met one couple who were so into matching everythings that it was almost nauseating – and the husband was the one waiting on his wife hand and foot.

Now let us look at the conservative/alt-/far-right view of women.  I think that Ivanka/Melania photo tells it all.  Are these women dynamic?  No.  What they are is submissive, and the wet-dream of man-boys who can’t handle strong women.  The submissive conservative woman is not encouraged to pursue education and work in the sciences, medicine and media.  She must perfect her homemaker skills, have supper ready when her husband gets home, and keep the kids clean and quiet.  Most of all, she must dress herself up like the piano-tuner’s monkey image we see of Ivanka below – a fairy princess clad in black so the other men don’t get too turned on, while a more mature woman needs to dress like a the shriveled prune illustrated by Melania.

Do you understand why the far-left is more open to Islam than it is to western conservatism when it comes to women’s rights?  They see women in progressive Islamic cultures becoming doctors and researchers, being fully utilized a thinking human beings, and then they look at man-boys in the west who advocate keeping women at home cooking and cleaning.  The truth is, western women know exactly what conservative/alt-/far-right male-dominance culture is all about, while they only see a smattering of images depicting Islamic male-dominated culture.

The fact is, both are odious and dangerous to women, and it is utter stupidity to run from one into the arms of the other.  The two images below should serve as a warning that western conservatism is no different under the skin than hard-line Islam is.  Take another look at what western conservatism has done to the beautiful Melania, and realize that this is what it has in store for all women who are stupid enough to run to it for cover.

Also, watch the video in the following link, if you can stomach it.  It will show you how women who have already been brainwashed into believing in right-wing values think.
