Camille Paglia: PC Feminization Is Undermining Western Civilization

Posted by Brian

An excellent read!  Camille Paglia is someone I have admired for a number of years. While I don't agree with her on many things, she is a great thinker, and offers unique perspectives on a range of political and social topics.
For these reasons, when I saw her name in the headline, I was immediately drawn to it. She doesn't disappoint.
In what Rush Limbaugh would call the "chickification" of America, Paglia describes how education in America, from kindergarten through university, have developed gender curriculum which is essentially anti-male, and "turning boys into neuters".
Paglia may have a valid point, and one need look no further than the recent photos of Barack and Michelle Obama in South Africa to see exactly what she is talking about. The photo montage shows exactly who wears the pants in that family, and it's not our first metro-sexual President. The Most powerful man in the world? Hell, he's not even the most powerful man in his marriage!

Camille Paglia: A Feminist Defense of Masculine Virtues 
The cultural critic on why ignoring the biological differences between men and women risks undermining Western civilization. 
 By BARI WEISS CONNECT Updated Dec. 28, 2013 10:46 p.m. ET Philadelphia

Camille Paglia
 'What you're seeing is how a civilization commits suicide," says Camille Paglia. This self-described "notorious Amazon feminist" isn't telling anyone to Lean In or asking Why Women Still Can't Have It All. No, her indictment may be as surprising as it is wide-ranging: The military is out of fashion, Americans undervalue manual labor, schools neuter male students, opinion makers deny the biological differences between men and women, and sexiness is dead. And that's just 20 minutes of our three-hour conversation.
 When Ms. Paglia, now 66, burst onto the national stage in 1990 with the publishing of "Sexual Personae," she immediately established herself as a feminist who was the scourge of the movement's establishment, a heretic to its orthodoxy. Pick up the 700-page tome, subtitled "Art and Decadence From Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson, " and it's easy to see why. "If civilization had been left in female hands," she wrote, "we would still be living in grass huts."
 The fact that the acclaimed book—the first of six; her latest, "Glittering Images," is a survey of Western art—was rejected by seven publishers and five agents before being printed by Yale University Press only added to Ms. Paglia's sense of herself as a provocateur in a class with Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern. But unlike those radio jocks, Ms. Paglia has scholarly chops: Her dissertation adviser at Yale was Harold Bloom, and she is as likely to discuss Freud, Oscar Wilde or early Native American art as to talk about Miley Cyrus.
 Ms. Paglia relishes her outsider persona, having previously described herself as an egomaniac and "abrasive, strident and obnoxious." Talking to her is like a mental CrossFit workout. One moment she's praising pop star Rihanna ("a true artist"), then blasting ObamaCare ("a monstrosity," though she voted for the president), global warming ("a religious dogma"), and the idea that all gay people are born gay ("the biggest canard," yet she herself is a lesbian).
But no subject gets her going more than when I ask if she really sees a connection between society's attempts to paper over the biological distinction between men and women and the collapse of Western civilization.

Senator Troubled That UPS Missed Christmas Deliveries, Unfazed About New Jan 1 Taxes and Healthcare Premium Increases

Posted by Brian

"…and then I made them think I really care!"
Really? This is what our historically esteemed "World's greatest deliberative body" has been reduced to? A senator, starved for attention, scolding United Parcel Service for missing scheduled deliveries due to unforeseen acts of God, combined with a surge of last-minute shoppers trying to get packages delivered.
A perfect storm? Maybe. Something the U.S. Senate, or a Senator, should be concerning themselves with? He's got to be kidding, right?
This is the mentality that the liberals want the American public to adopt.  For every problem, big or small, they want you to turn to the government. It's why idiots call 911 at midnight to complain that McDonalds won't serve them chicken nuggets. Government has successfully fostered a dependent mentality in intergenerational low income families. They look to government for everything - food, shelter, money, phone, and even chicken nuggets.
The UPS's missed deliveries provides an even bigger opportunity for the liberals and statists. Americans who don't normally fall into the traditional dependent classes liberals like to exploit,  the middle and upper income brackets, were also caught up in this. What better way to attempt to pull them into, maybe not the dependent fold, but to be more sympathetic to the idea that government really "cares".
So Senator Blumenthal is out there screaming that UPS, Amazon - private companies - need to "do the right thing", and give refunds to their customers for not giving on-time deliveries. We already know that the missed deliveries are a PR nightmare for UPS and Amazon. How is he so sure that they aren't already planning some sort of refund or other incentive to customers to satisfy them?  He doesn't.  This is just political grandstanding.
Another thing that no one I have heard mention is what responsibility some of the customers may have in some of this.  Should customers accept some to the responsibility for waiting until the last minute to mail presents off?  Maybe they should have not procrastinated.  Or, God forbid(!), they could have phoned the affected friends or relatives to inform them that their present might not get there in time for Christmas morning, or maybe telling them that on the bright side, it just extends their joy. Hell, I don't know.  Take some responsibility, will ya?
I know.  I'm a terrible person, probably even a grinch, just for mentioning that people might even share in a little of the responsibility in how everything happened.
And why is a U.S. Senator involved in this for Christ's sake? This guy is a Senator! He, supposedly, represents the interests of his State of Connecticut. Not individuals. The State.  There are people called "Representatives" who represent the People.  Not that their Representatives should get involved in this either. How does John or Joan Q. Citizen not getting their delivery fall under his purview? They don't.  But that doesn't matter.  What matters is the perception that he cares.
Meanwhile, on January 1st, every person in his state, and every other one as well, is going to be hit with a barrage of new taxes as ObamaCare starts to really kick in, not to mention the outrageous deductibles people are getting hit with before benefits are even payed out. Of course this only includes the people who haven't been kicked off their plans (the ones we all were supposed to be able to keep) and who fortunately still have their health insurance, or the few who have been able to sign up through the exchanges.
While Blumenthal is stroking you with his feigned Christmas spirit, sympathizing that your presents didn't arrive on time, he is silent on the fact that you're about to get a significant tax increase on January 1st. I guess his caring, like most liberals, only extends so far.
Happy New Year!

Don We Now Our Gay Apparel - Does ObamaCare's LGBT Christmas Ad "Jump The Shark"?

At the same time that Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty is being chastised by our cultural elitists for opinion that most American's have, the Obama Administration is putting out a  new ObamCare Ad which targets the LGBT crowd. Scantily clad men suggestively sucking on candy canes, prancing around, and playing into the sterotype of what all gay men are supposedly supposed to act like,  the ad appears to also be a poke in the eye of traditional Christian and Christmas values.
Is the Obama Administration this tone deaf, or are they purposely trying to push the buttons of small town America?  What are your thoughts?

Fed-Up Veteran Educates Pious and Snide "Educators" at Democrat Anti-Gun "Forum"

Posted by Brian

New Trier, Ill - Northeastern Cook County, Chicago suburb
Tired of hearing lies, half-truths, and being referred to as Nazi's and Chihuahua's, a man identifying himself as a veteran stood up and educated a group of snide, elitest Chicago Democrats drawing cheers and shout of approval from the crowd who had shown up to forum billing itself as a "space for real conversation", only to be told to "shush" time and again.
Don't take my word for it. Watch the video. Pay attention especially to the guy at the 15 second mark, who addresses the room in a tone of voice normally reserved for a 2-year-old. This is the voice of the elitest who views himself as intellectually superior to those around him, and is disgusted to even be in the same room to people he views as lower than primordial sludge, and thus addresses them with a voice that drips with contempt.
This was not a forum to have a "real conversation", as advertised. This was a lecture, put on by leftists, to allow them to tell everyone HOW things should be, and how they are going to be. Unfortunately for them, a US military veteran, along with a whole bunch of pro-Second Amendment, pro-Constitution people showed up and told them how things are.
Remember. There are a whole lot more people like this veteran, who love our Country and our Constitution, than the media and the leftists want you to believe.

A&E Fires 'Duck Dynasty's' Phil Robertson Over Christophobian GLAAD Complaint

Posted by Brian
H/T to The Hollywood Reporter

You had to see this one coming.  The left has been waiting to jump on Phil Robertson ever since he let God and all creation know, in no uncertain terms, that he was a devout Christian, bathed in the blood  of Christ, and not ashamed to let you know it.  I mean, you know it just burn the leftists up that the Robertson family has the gall to throw their Christianity in our face every week when they say grace before the meal at the end of each show. Sometimes Phil even says "in Jesus' name" before saying "Amen"!  It's almost like throwing Holy Water on a demon.

The patriarch of Duck Dynasty'. Phil Robertson was put on "indefinite hiatus" after GLAAD and its spokesman Wilson Cruz objected to comments Robertson made to GQ Magazine regarding homosexuality.

Calling it "the vilest and most extreme statements uttered against LGBT people in a mainstream publication", GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz attacked Robertson's Christian faith, saying "Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil's lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe. "He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans -- and Americans -- who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples. Phil's decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to re-examine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families."

So what were the "vile and extreme statements" that Phil Robertson uttered that has the LGBT crowd ready to take to the streets with torches and pitchforks?

On being asked about homosexuality, Phil Robertson opined:
“It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Asked about repentance and what he himself finds sinful, Robertson offered this:
"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there," he says. "Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men." Paraphrasing 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Roberson continues, “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

So where are the vile and extreme statements.  Did he call for violence against gays, or that gays should be oppressed, or rounded up and put in camps? No. Phil Robertson gave his opinion based on what he believes. You can agree or disagree. That's all.  What it does sound like is the fake outrage from a bunch of leftist Christophobes.

That's right, you read right. Christophobe.  We constantly hear of homophobes, islamophobes, this phobe or that phobe, but attacks on the Judeo-Christian heritage in this country are met with silence. When any conservative, especially a conservative Christian, doesn't agree with the politically correct views of the left, the offender is attacked with La Cage au Faux outrage by GLAAD, or whatever leftist group is pissed off this week. Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin throws the word "faggot" around at photographers and reporters on a regular basis, and GLAAD can barely muster up an arched eyebrow, or an "Oh, that Alec!"

Also, Wilson Cruz is apparently an ordained minister and expert on biblical theology, saying that the Robertson's "claim to be Christian" but lie about gays.  He doesn't say what those lies are, but because he's gay and I'm not, I probably couldn't understand anyway.  It's a gay thing, I guess.

What Phil Robertson did do was give his opinion on homosexual sex. It's his opinion. We are still allowed to have those, are we not?  He also paraphrased a portion of the Bible which condemns sin and sexual immorality, including but not limited to homosexuality. The offending portion that he paraphrased for you sinners out there was this:

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)

Cruz says that most Americans support the LGBT agenda.  I don't know if they do or they don't.  I don't really care, and that is not what Phil Robertson was asked.  They asked for his views. Not America's views.

This is the problem with all of these leftist groups.  They don't want you to have your own views.  Your views must reflect the collective view, and when someone like Phil Robertson gives his view, he must be crushed and made an example of.  Their goal is to remove individual thought. Like the book 1984, the goal is to shrink the language:

“Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thought-crime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by eactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. . . . The process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller. Even now, of course, there's no reason or excuse for commiting thought-crime. It's merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control. But in the end there won't be any need even for that. . . . Has it ever occcured to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?” George Orwell - 1984

That is why it is dangerous when you have these vacuous Hollywood actors and actresses, or some advocacy group, start calling for the elimination of this word or that word from books and dictionaries, or the public square. Just this week actress Jennifer Lawrence of the 'Hunger Games' franchise, called for "regulating" words like "fat".

By the way, why do they call themselves GLAAD when they seem to be pissed off all the time!

SHOCK! Dem Strategist Called On Her Anti-Tea Party Propaganda and Outright Lies on MSNBC

Posted by Brian
H/T to Deneen Borelli

An MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry roundtable discussion got heated, as Democrat strategist and former Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus, Angela Rye, reached into her liberal bag of talking points, and for the 145,742 time, accused the Tea Party of having racist undertones. 
Specifically she said, "I was just thinking, to me, in 2010, the Republican infighting took a particularly dangerous tone because it wasn’t just about infighting anymore. It was about taking our country back with the resurrection of the Tea Party. And it was very, very racial, whether any of them will admit it or not."
Well, it wasn't, and still isn't, racial.  Furthermore, the rise of the Tea Party started well before 2010, as conservatives began becoming frustrated with the spending of George W. Bush and Republicans.
Ron Christie
To his credit, Ron Christie called Ms. Nye on her blatant race-baiting, informing her that race had absolutely nothing to do with the Tea Party's opposition to Barack Obama. Out of control spending does.
Melissa Harris-Perry stepped into the fray to go to a break, returning to the same discussion when they came back from the break.
Nye then doubled down, bringing up the mystery spitting and use of the "N" word supposedly directed at Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis (D-GA) as Democrats reenacted the civil rights march on Selma as they made their way to vote on ObamaCare.
Problem one: No one  actually ever heard anyone shout the N-word at Lewis,  nor did anyone see anyone spit on Lewis.  Not has anyone been able to produce an audiotape, videotape, or any other evidence that this ever happened, despite literally scores of audio and video recorders all along the route Lewis walked, and at the location where the alleged incident happened. Even Lewis has refused to answer one way or the other to this day.  A $100 thousand dollar reward offered by Breitbart remains unclaimed to this day.
Problem two:  Ron Christie states that he WAS at the march and at the location where the alleged incident took place, and he adamantly denies that either thing happened.
Game, set, match to Christie.

Ron Christie Smacks Down Race Card Propaganda on MSNBC
By Deneen Borelli / 17 December 2013

For far too long, MSNBC hosts and guests have used the race card to unfairly attack the character of Tea Party activists as a means to undermine their credibility.

That’s why I was thrilled to see fellow black conservative Ron Christie shutdown the race card propaganda on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry show last Sunday.

Surrounded by liberals, Christie promptly reacted to the old and wild accusation made by Angela Rye, a former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), that Tea Party activists oppose Obama because of race. Being on MSNBC, Rye must have thought she was in a liberal safe zone where any statement goes without a challenge.

Utah Judge: Polygamy Ban is Unconstitutional

Posted by Brian

When you have breached the firewalls, where does it stop?

Remember when those on the left said that it was fear-mongering to even suggest that same-sex marriage would open the door to polygamy, polyamory (group marriage), bestiality, and other practices outside of traditional marriage?  There were those of us who saw this as the logical extension of what the left is doing.  They want to destroy the institutions and fundamental traditions that have made America the greatest country on the planet. The problem is, is that many Americans just can't comprehend how sick the leftist mind really is, and refuse to believe that anyone could have those motives.
Islam has a practice called taqiya, which states it is okay to deceive someone if it helps to further the islamic faith. Leftists have learned well from islamists and other immoral societies throughout history, and practice the same thing to further their religion of liberalism.
This is why it is foolish to enter into "good faith" negotiations with today's liberals and statists. They engage in their own version of taqiya, practicing a "by any means necessary" playbook to further their agenda. Lying, cheating, and deceiving are all acceptable to these leftists.  One need look no further than ObamaCare to see this.  Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the Democrats and leftists knew they couldn't be honest with the American people about what was in the bill, or how it would negatively affect them.  They certainly couldn't admit that the whole thing was an elaborate plan to redistribute wealth.  The American people wouldn't have supported it.  It is why Nancy Pelosi was out there saying that they needed "to pass it, so you can see what's in it".
It's the same thing with this.  American's would not go along with gay marriage if they know that, for the leftists, its just a first step toward polygamy, polyamory, and the deconstruction and shredding of the moral fabric has made this country a shining example to the rest of the world for over 200 years.

Polygamy advocate groups hail judge's ruling in Utah
Published December 15, 2013Associated Press

Advocacy groups for polygamy and individual liberties on Saturday hailed a federal judge's ruling that key parts of Utah's polygamy laws are unconstitutional, saying it will remove the threat of arrest for those families.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups said in the decision handed down Friday that a provision in Utah law forbidding cohabitation with another person violated the First Amendment right of freedom of religion.

Ed Schultz: Deadbeat Employer and Tax Dodger

Posted by Brian

In true liberal fashion, MSNBC's porcine Ed Schultz has been exposed as the hypocrite he accuses others of being.
Ed is the quintessential leftist who rails against capitalism and evil corporations, calls on "the rich" to pay their "fair share" in taxes, and rants about the virtues of socialized medicine and single payer health care.
However, that appears to be all it is - talk.
According to the Daily Caller, Ed Schultz who has two businesses, which he headquarters in the state of North Dakota.  Why North Dakota?  Because he dodges the higher tax rates in his home state of Minnesota.  And while he is advocating for government-run health care, the apparently less-than-compassionate Ed Schultz does NOT provide his employees health insurance. Ed sounds like one of those greedy rich bastards that he's always railing against.
Ed also likes to point out how, in his estimation, the rich don't pay their fair share of taxes and are sticking it to the working man and woman.  Well, it seems that not only does Ed avoid higher taxes by setting up his companies in lower tax rate states, in some cases he tries to avoid them altogether, seeing as South Dakota has a tax lien against his construction company.
As a final stake through the heart of this vampire of the working class, while Ed screams against corporate bailouts, and defends union bailouts, he gladly takes $72,000 from the UAW, paid for off the dues, and backs, of the assembly line workers - who incidentally may see a 25% hike in their membership dues.
Yeah, Ed's a real class act. Low class.

Dems Push For End To All Federal Death Penalty Legislation - Including Treason and Terror Attacks

Posted by Brian
H/T to The Hill

The Boston bombing will not be a death penalty offense under new bill introduced by Democrats
Democrats in the House of Representitives, led by Maryland Rep Donna Edwards, are pushing to effectively remove the death penalty for any offense under Federal Law.   These include, but are not limited to treason, espionage, kidnapping and assassination of the President, Vice President, or member of Congress, murder via torture, mass murder using WMD's (including chemical and biological), child abuse, war crimes, or kidnappings.
The bill, H.R. 3741, is a wet dream for those who want to assassinate government officials, kill large numbers of people with dirty bombs, or to permanently silence witnesses. Thats right! Under this ridiculous, and dangerous bill, killing the star witness against you would now be just another run of the mill crime.
Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD)
So who is this Donna Edwards?  She is a hard left Democrat who is in a safe gerrymandered district (No Republican has gotten more than 25% of the vote since the district was redrawn in 1990).  She is a former community activist/organizer (imagine that!).  She has a perfect 100% score from both NARAL and Planned Parenthood. She boasts a 0% score from the Club for Growth. She scores an "F" or 0% on 2nd Amendment issues, and Vietnam Veterans Assoc., and Iraq/Afghanistan Veterans advocacy groups score her at 0%. (Full list of Positions)
Leftists, starting with the President, are full speed ahead in the their quest for power.  They see this as their moment to crush conservatism in this country for generations, and to do as Obama promised in 2008 - to fundamentally dismantle and transform the United States of America into the Marxist/socialist utopia they think it should be.
The GOP leadership in the House and Senate under Boehner, McConnell and the rest have already conceded defeat.
It is now up to grassroots conservatives and libertarians to come together and stand up against what is going to be a fight against both the leftists and marxists on the democrat side, and the neo-statists in the GOP.

Obama Authorizes Slaughter Of Bald Eagles To Fight Global Warming

Posted by Brian


Another example of the numerous stories that the mainstream media refuses to, or is uninterested in covering, is the wholesale slaughter of millions of birds and bats (over a half a million birds and nearly 900K bats annually) every year from wind turbines, including those designated as endangered species.  This despite the fact that wind farms account for only about 3% of electricity produced in the U.S.
The sick part of this is that in the mind of the leftist environmentalists, these are acceptable losses.  Of course they are only "acceptable" if they are being slaughtered by a form of energy that they approve of.  Their hypocrisy is apparent when you realize that oil companies have received exorbitant fines for the deaths of migratory birds. Pacificorp paid over $10M for the deaths of just over 500 birds, yet wind farms are killing birds in the millions while remaining nearly unscathed in the deaths they cause.
This is because Obama and all of the Enviro-marxists in charge don't give a crap about slaughtered birds (endangered or otherwise), displaced polar bears or their populations, global warming, melting ice caps or any of the other hot button issues they use to scare people with.  The enviro-marxists are using the green movement as a means to redistribute wealth and destroy capitalism.  If a few bald  eagles get killed, they are not in the least bit concerned.  In fact, being that the bald eagle is the symbol for the United States, whom Obama doesn't like anyway, he really doesn't care that a few get killed. He probably wishes more would.
It will be interesting to see how much, if any time the media gives this story.  My guess is the only place you'll hear about it is here or elsewhere on the web.

President Obama Will Sacrifice Bald Eagles To Fight Global Warming
by James M. Taylor December 13, 2013

The Obama administration announced last Friday that it will grant industrial wind farm operators 30-year permits to kill legally protected bald eagles and golden eagles without fear of legal repercussions. U.S. wind turbines already kill 1.4 million birds and bats each year, including many endangered, threatened and protected species such as California condors, bald eagles and Indiana bats.

The Obama administration claims this annual bird and bat slaughter is necessary to fight global warming. Sources very close to the President have leaked to me the text of the following presidential speech on the topic, which President Obama will deliver later this week in a parallel universe that I will reconstruct (satire) for readers.

Mom Says Security Put Dead Son in a Taxi

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (CN) - Hospital security guards sent an "uncooperative" patient who was "refusing to talk or move" home in a taxi, though he was dying or already dead, the man's mother claims in court.
The late A'Darrin Washington's mother, Deborah Washington, sued AlliedBarton Security Services, in Cumberland County Superior Court.
A'Darrin Washington died on Nov. 22, 2011 during his discharge from nonparty Cumberland County Hospital, according to the complaint.

Wrong Again! Algore Said Polar Ice Cap Will Be Gone in 5 Years…5 years Ago!

Posted by Brian
H/T to Gateway Pundit

Algore has been predicting since 2007 that the North Pole could be ice free in five years.  By his and his computer models' predictions, Santa's home should be gone by now.  Instead the Arctic ice cap has increased by nearly a million square miles in the past year, or an increase of 60%.
This year , just a few days before the annual autumn re-freeze, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretched from the Canadian islands to Russia's north coast.

Algore is kind of like the reverse Midas.  Every prediction he makes turns to crap.
