Steynian 349


Unicorn Land

~ ITEM: What next? Over-the-counter roofies?

~ PROGRESSIVES IMAGINE they can make people good, and that whatever they come up with, will take effect in the world without negative consequences, or a fallen human nature. As soon as I heard about the whole ‘over the counter chemical death pill thing, I thought of how men might abuse such things against wives, girlfriends, and even hook-ups (sneak a few into a drink, and there you are!.. or as some blog-wag put it: “Do her. Dose her. Ditch her.”). Then there’s the violation of pharmacist’s consciences. Let’s not forget BigPharm profits. Liberation, thy name is profit & convenience. And the progressive project of further turning men and women, and holy mystery, into nothing special, and possible or actual children into guilty intruders, to be judged and executed. ~

~ MARK STEYN SIGNED AND sent along to Castle Binks a copy of his new tome: Lights Out: Islam, free speech, and the twilight of the west. Huzzah! Eager reading ensues. It’s a powerful & sturdy 322 page revisit of the Elmasry-Free Speech wars, and a welcome collection of Mark’s best columns on a militant Islam versus a timid multiculti West, with our ‘eyes wide shut’ elites. He’s been and remains a warrior for all of us– buy & read and pass on this book to those who need to wake up before it’s too late.

Steyn’s open secret is his wit & turn of phrase, taking difficult or distressing matters and laying them out simply and engagingly. Like an artist, Mark Steyn depicts and delights, but never falls into the easy temptation of ranting. He reminds this reader of a bewigged character, (perhaps from the Nelsonian navy), saying of his opponents “I say, those beggars seem to be trying to kills us. What rotters. Shall we have at them?” The rollicking results always satisfy.

If you order via his site, he’ll even scribble some hateful and flagrantly islamophobic something or other on it for you. If you’ve not bought, read, and passed on at least one of the recent books by Mark, Ezra, and Kathy, you’ve missed an important step in the freespeech wars– hard copies, supporting our heroes, telling the full story of the last decade, and how we got here. Heck– why not donate one to the local library? ~


~ WHAT DID I DO FOR EARTH DAY? NOTHING.. though I am planning on getting some real (incandescent) lightbulbs to replace the short-lived mercury-filled bulbs of evil. I want to see again, and not by watery variously coloured politically-correct bulbs. And where are the cheap LED bulbs yet? ~

~ LIBERALS ARE the ultimate idea-people. Ideas exist– people, reality, evidence, and outcomes are fuzzy. ‘Choice’? More real than actual unborn children. ‘Feminism’? More important than the fate of actual existent women. ‘Tolerance’? More essential than actual free speech laws & rights. You can go on listing the examples, but it’s the key to sorting out how the “mean-well” Leftist cadres roll.

It accounts for their freakish behaviour in response to Jihad: the current behaviour of the new American Administration; and whatever’s up in Eurostan and Britain. If it doesn’t compute, it doesn’t exist or figure into the master-theory. It is the ultimate in blind faith: ideology uber alles. That’s why the leftiacs are such fine exemplars of the law of unintended consequences. When unreaity stumbles over reality, “But I never meant that” is sure to follow. Add to that pure cowardice, a tendency to bullying, and a denial of reality, even if it means stepping over and looking the other way when suffering, contradiction, and real humans are involved. ~

~ LET US REMEMBER that 50%+ of Muslim people in Western countries are NOT hot for Jihad, or supportive of it– depending on area and generation, it may be a very tiny minority. We must take individuals on their own terms, and be winsome advocates for a responsible freedom, within the terms of the thought, law, and faith of the West, and not merely pop culture, permissiveness, or individuality uber alles. As I ponder it, many of the ‘best’ folks in terms of duty & rights, and patriotism and public responsibility are precisely people of Judeo-Christian faith. We forget that whatever their faults and foibles, past generations were raised within that faith and understanding of self and other. As faith recedes from the public sphere, anomalies like Perez Hilton and Richard Warman are one form of the confusion we find ourselves in.

In any case, we must– to our immigrants or barbarians within, hold forth the best of what we are, and have been. Too often conservatives leave the public sphere to activists and group-ideology, and then complain when said radicals come knocking at the door of church, school, and legislature. If we will not be present, and patient, and confident of our cause– then why should our radicals, or those entering our system.

Get To The Bomb Shelter!

~ I THINK I’VE SAID IT BEFORE, but I’d love a bomb shelter/ hermitage. You know, dry, tricked out and comfy with books, computer and high-speed connection.
