United Breaks Guitars, Don’t They?
~ ITEM: United Airlines gives to charity in guitar gaffe
~ ITEM: I’m a customer that won’t take poor service without a fight, but this guy has raised consumer revenge to an art form
~ GENERALLY I’M A PEACEFUL SORT, but get the dander up, try and steal or break something of me or mine, or lie barefacedly, and I get a little brisk.
The blogging all started partly to cover news, and partly to push back at the falsehood factory and abuse-machine that is modernist Anglicanism, and my crazy formerly conservative bishop of the time.. let’s call him “BigNose”.
Little people are actually the foundation of things, and the ones who do most of the grunt-work, and they generally make the best rabble-rousers.. witness Wat Tyler, William Wallace, and even the middling folks leading the Pilgrimage Of Grace against the sexual & ecclesiastical predator Henry VIII.
So you want to bet that the gone-viral video about a bit of utterly botched customer service by United Airlines has them wishing they could hit rewind. Danged uppity customers!
Thus within a few years, the old news gig by Binky– CaNN, or Classical Anglican Net News– was the leading non-mainstream church media website, visited by clergy and laypeople and bishops and archbishops around the world. Yes, simply by telling “the rest of the story” in a timely, piquant, and persistent manner, I did shape events in the Anglican world. Danged uppity drone!
So a stomped-on politically incorrect cleric became an international powerbroker and new-media news-source, simply by telling the rest of the story, and not edited for correctness, and 4 months after the fact. Thanks for the inspiration, Bignose, and to all your simpleminded drones who would rather knuckle under and not stir the pot.
So more power to ordinary people of good will like Halifax-based Dave Carroll and his band Sons of Maxwell, who didn’t just go away mad, but spoke the truth in a fair, funny, fact-based way, and now has United Airlines (they break guitars, don’t they?) calling him to make things right, belatedly. So has Taylor guitar, recognizing a hit and a happening moment when they see one.
I believe in changing the world for good, and that it lays in the power of honest ordinary folk to do it, simply by standing up, speaking out, and connecting with other like-minded people for mutual support and strength in numbers. So someone like Ezra– perhaps imagining himself destined to be a power-broker and political figure in Ottawa, has instead captivated the nation and the internet by speaking back, persisting, and writing a fine blog and a better book about his experiences. Perhaps not the route he’d planned, but the time and place and path that was open and needed someone like him to step out and lead.
Why? Well, I believe in God, and therefore, as my Boss put it, that “all things are possible with God.” [ Matthew xix. 26 ] ~
“Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.”
~ ITEM: Must Watch Video: Michael Coren – Check your moral equivalence at the door
~ ITEM: “They Won Their Freedom”
~ ITEM: Why mass murdering Communism fails and mass murdering Islam is a successful vampire at large in the free West.
~ (Former NDP MPP Marilyn Churley’s terse response when queried by Michael Coren as to whether we should be concerned about the danger posed by radical Islam, The Michael Coren Show, July 8, ’09) ~
~ WHEN IT COMES to special discrimination, watch a progressive when you give them a chance go riffing on Christians and their imagined excesses past & present. When it comes to anything to do with the claims of a particular faith, all bets are off– whether it’s the accuracy of the Bible, Christian History, The Shroud of Turin– or even comparing Christian atrocities by so-called fundamentalists against the progressive pieties of abortion, the sodomy-industrial complex, big government, Jew-bashing, and multiculturalism, or the jihad.
The Bald Guy Brings It
Michael Coren’s show is simply must-watch, especially when he’s not bashing the conservatives he invites onboard. His past work on abortion was a real eye-opener to this blogger, and while his books have been a mixed lot, his TV-work and column writing is simply perfection.. like the swordsmanship of a real master: to the point, cutting, and seemingly effortless.
So you have on this part of his show a failed socialist politician, and a flagrantly ‘anti-Zionist’ student politician heading up the Soviet of the worse-than-a-joke York University (which we sometimes refer to as Sockpuppet University, since several of the anti-Steyn sock-puppets of noted anti-Semite and sharia-warrior Mo Elmasry were graduates of the law skool thereof). Ah yes, the remarkable sort of education which results in objects like Khurrum Awan-To-Be-Famous When I Grow Up.
On The Other Hand
If it’s seriously Judeo-Christian– in this polarized age of marching Islamists and active progressives– then it’s a free-for-all of legend, hear-say, caricature, and calumny which should theoretically bring about Human Rights Complaints, if the commissions weren’t staffed with lapsed and liberal cultural-Christians, along with a dog’s breakfast of acceptable multicultural products. But– as we know– Christians are sinners, and very powerful and dangerous and intolerant, and want to impose violent religious law on everybody, and repress women, and hate infidels and such, right? The Islamist Jihad and secular utopians are set for a rumble, and want to clear the battlefield of other religious nutters, especially serious and thoughtful Christians who won’t be sent off to their rooms without supper for believing on God and Jesus and stuff.
That we have actual Muslims who desire and are working hard to implement such things in Canada would not faze such stalwart bigots as “NDP Stalwart Marilyn Churley and her fellow Islamofascist Apologist Krisna Saravanmutta President of the York Federation of Students.” The NP, as we’ve noted elsewhere, are infiltrated panderers to militant Canadian and offshore jihad & sharia supremacism. So too, most Canadian universities have links to the sharia-supremacist MSU, and anti-semite/ anti-Israel activism, such as perpetrated by the ostensibly Hindu Saravanmutta.
After all, it was frothing Jesus-nutters like Stephen Boissoin and Chris Kempling who have been persecuted by the state in one case, and the Marxist/ Homophile BC Teacher’s Union on the other, to the tune of their careers, tens of thousands of dollars, and years of their lives. When Point De Bascules tried to get a Human Rights Compliant to even be accepted for consideration against a vile and publicly hateful Islamo-cleric of some sort in Quebec, it was a no-go. It’s all good.
That, ultimately, is the lie behind the batten-down-the-hatches approach of apparatchicks like Jennifer Lynch and her related crew of cronies and enablers. It’s not about justice, law, truth, or fairness– it’s about punishing political crimes against multiculturalism, and making a utopian Canada. In that sense, she’s perfectly right: the CHRC is doing its job, as currently programmed: terminating the bumpiness and freedom of the human mind and soul.
“Soul”?– and oogy-boogy icky religious word, unless you’re talking soulful movies with sparkly vampires these days, but it’s a soul thing: seeking what we were made for; the beautiful, the good, the true– and ultimately, God. Neither government as God, nor Allah as Dictator can stand the concept of liberty and freedom as set out in the Graeco-Romano Judeo-Christian universe. Both seek to replace it with something else: in one case, political correct zombieism under bureaucrats, and the other, mindless submission under mullahs.
We must treat such a mindless wrecking machines like Michael Coren treated the idiots in the clip above: with merciless love and compassion, undercutting their nonsense until there’s nothing left. The only possible answer is to gut the institution, fire the bureaucrats, and reset it to the original task: rents, discrimination, and letting the criminal law intervene when and how it must.
Just remember: bigoted progressives and entitled bureaucrats will fight tooth and nail against open opposition: they are the true believers and fundamentalists, alongside their Islamist allies of convenience. But facts, reasonable faith, and a little brave persistence in fighting back go a long way. ~
Forward Into The Abyss!
~ ITEM: Liberals and terrorists a better fit than liberals and Americans; A Committee on Un-Canadian Activities until election day
~ ITEM: Disgraced ex-judge Alcee Hastings can hardly wait to throw his political opponents into concentration camps; Democrat Congress-hack: Jews are Black, Blacks and Jews love to kill babies, Palin is Hitler
~ CANUCKISTAN LED THE WAY! Back when we built and produced things and innovated, we Canuckis invented a ship-load of cool stuff. Now that we’re more into having 1 out of every 10 Canadians work for the government, then our innovations tend to be more in bad ideas, red tape, and socialist stupid.
So during the same-sex marriage debacle in Canada, then-PM Paul martin actually vocalized the notion that only Liberals who agreed with radical sexual politics were the real thing: all other views were ‘unCanadian’– where’ Canadian ‘ means whatever the government had currently gotten away with, or was planning to get away with, according to the passing whims and activities of radicals with political access. Current Liberal leader and PM-hopeful Michael Ignatieff seems to hold this view, as well
This ugly doctrine dovetails nicely with the idea that squeaky wheels get the rights, and the more rights you invent or demand or accrue, the more real you and your minority and their grievances are. The logical consequence is that those without lots of time and lawyers and an obsessive sense of entitlement– say, 95% of the populace– have, legally speaking, less right, less legal existence, less piled-up demands satisfied by the progressive courts. So the by now hoary joke that a handicapped latino-black-asian lesbian is the perfect modern more-equal-than-thou person, as far as special treatment goes.
The losers? Law. Justice. Impartiality and true equality. As opposed to the ‘consumer’ label of capitalism, or the ‘citizen’ label of law, we become ‘rightists’. Ordinary people find themselves left behind and disenfranchised, voiceless, and– indeed– less and less Canadian, as defined by the ever more radicalized bleeding edge of progressive social re-engineering.
Fast forward a few years, to the progressive utopia of Obama’s USSA, where we see the same doctrine, but with the practical effects made more visible by the suicidal speed of change in that society. Thus, we see a de-citizening of all but hard-left Democrats and their elites, and certain favoured minorities including liberal Blacks, Latinos, and Muslims. Whites? Mostly bad. Gun & Bible-clingers? Bad. Limbaugh/ Beck & minions? Bad. Gun-owners? Bad.
So the 2009 pork-handout goes to pro-Obama areas; so Republican GM dealers are closed down before Democrats; so blacks and their radicals are given a free pass, legally; so ordinary ‘un-righted’ folk find their economic, political, and legal freedoms slowly infringed by an ugly, merciless, and radical elitism, that deems all unprogs as ‘un-American’.
God willing it only stays that way and not much worse– but the 20th century is heaped high with the bodies of ideological enemies, deemed by their various betters as expendable or eminently in need of special & final treatment. Big government is the enemy of freedom, and has been the means by which paperwork and due process have led to disenfranchisement, gulags, and death-camps.
So when we see some Democrats in the U.S. [ like Rep. Alcee Hastings, amongst others ] start to apply words like’ terrorist’ to people who are actually legitimate political opponents, or suggesting that camps for rounding up the ideologically impure might go along way to neatening up American political life, we say (1) it’s happened before, and (2) could happen again. Ironically, unlike the infamous UnAmerican Activities Commission of leftist Joe McCarthy, there were communist plots and espionage throughout the U.S. establishment, and the entertainment elites– it was the cool cutting-edge thing, of course. Now, the unAmerican activities appear to be be thought-crimes, and unprogressiveness as currently defined by Obama, Al Gore, The Huffington Post, and 9/11 Truther/ Bushitler haters.
What gives me goosebumps is not that idiots say stupid things, but that Democrats don’t dog-pile their own for making such illiberal and fascistic statements in public. Are these trial balloons? We know Obama has that whole busy schedule thing and so can’t speak out on anything he doesn’t feel like checking the teleprompter for his current opinion, but this sort of thing is– and must remain– truly unAmerican, uncivilized, and inhuman. Evil.
We told you so. ~
Please– Give Till It Hates!
~ ITEM: Elmo’s new rag “The Canadian Charger” Gains Instant Credibility With Stellar Editorial Board
~ GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, then! It’s July, and apparently Canada is still left deserving better, according to noted Jew-Hater and pro-Muslim bigot Mohamed Elmasry and his leftist-crony crew. So much for getting that magazine underway, huh? No wonder you wanted to hijack Maclean’s in the good old fashioned Jihad way of taking other people’s cities, inventions, culture, and holy places.
A bit of free advice Mr. Elmasry, for your next auction-thingy: make sure ahead of time that you’ve got a few patsies already willing to cough up big figures, so it looks like some sort of inspiring wave of spontaneous support, and not a lame-ass underwhelming can’t-get-it-up moment, as actually occurred. Word has it the Saudis have lots of jihad money– why not ask them to pony up for a new hate-mag for Wahabbism?
Oh No He Di’in’t!
Of course, this vile infidel can’t help but remember the showdown of Elijah and the Prophets of Ba’al on the mountaintop [ 1 Kings 18:17-40 ].
As hour after hour the Ba’al worshippers feverishly beseech their deity to set their sacrificial wood & bull on fire, Elijah offers a little helpful and grimly comedic commentary on their lack of success [ 1 Kings 18:27 ].
“Cry aloud, for he is a god; either he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened.”
The original Hebrew translated as “he is busy” is ‘turned aside’.. that is a Biblical euphemism for “gone off to the little boy’s room”.
Given the underwhelming state of the Canadian Charger, perhaps Mr. Elmasry needs to check if his deity is zoned out, or perhaps is on the can, wandered off somewhere, or gone nappy-byes? Or maybe his god is unhappy that ElMo’s consorting with useful idiots who happen to be dirty infidels.
Then again– as Mark Steyn noted– someone who puts all his eggs in one basket by trusting in the compelling star-power of a sad little sock-puppet like Khurrum Awan? Maybe giving even Allah a hard time bringing about some good out of that repetitious little walking toothache. ~
Watching Over Me
~ ITEM: Modern Angelic Appearances
~ JUST IN CASE you were wondering, yes I believe in angels, and that the Shroud of Turin is the actual thing, and that Christianity– all of it– is true, and good.
I would say that there is indeed more ‘evidence’ in the modern era, with our scientific tools, and advances in quantum physics and otherwise, to understand a universe that is remarkably more complex than the Newtonian or even Einsteinian theories allow for. That may upset the “prove it” atheists, but old tags like “the laws of nature” or even the passing fads of mechanistic evolution, or biochemical determinism, genomic & genetic theories, and whatever will come along next in the parade of Ultimate Scientific Theories of Everything are the certainties of a moment. Science proceeds by analogy, and by the dominant philosophical and intellectual currents of an age.
My notion of angels? Not wee bare-bummed cherubs: think, rather.. a giant highlander, ready to bless or blast, at the Lord’s command. And the Fallen angels? Empty nightmares beyond any easy description. And ghosts? Never seen one, but people I know have, in addition to other ‘weird‘ and various premonitory things in the immediate family– to use the Scottish word in the proper sense.
More than once, a parishioner would begin a story with “You’re going to think I’m crazy, but..” only to find out that this particular priest did, in fact, believe in various aspects of the supernatural, and generally did not assume that anybody describing a ghost, vision, angelic visit, or other ‘beyond the ordinary’ spiritual experience of some form was de facto insane. ~
