~ M****** D** IS A TOUGH day for This Elf after the death of the Binks-Mom on her 65th birthday (and Mother’s Day) by car accident in 2007. I didn’t forget M****** D** this year, but didn’t put it online with the recent posting.
You can read all the deets, the bulletin & the sermon via the site Teh Binks made for her: Remembering MomCat.
Her death was a turning-point for me in many things, not least in leaving the ruins of Anglicanism, fighting those small wars, however important or representative of the spiritual malaise of that tiny Western sect, caught up in the secularist morass of liberation politics and pandering to worldliness. Still– lotsa good people over there, and I love and respect them all for their courage and perseverance.
Happy Mother’s Day in memoriam to my Mom (and to my Mother-In-Law), and not least to Teh She-Binks, mother of Teh Binkings, and my dearest heart. ~
Commie Porn: The Passion Of The Ernie
~ WORLD WAR II endures, if the flood of evil video-game and Hollywood Nazis out there is anything to go by. Interesting, wot? After all, it’s only a mere.. lessee.. 71 years since Hitler & Co. invaded Poland. 1939 is actually closer to the year 1869 than it is to 2010, if you do the math.
Keep On Message
We all know the message off by heart– Nazis bad. Very bad. Worst ever. Really, really bad.
That the Nazis actually killed fewer Communists in Russia than Stalin did; or that Mao killed 2/3 as many Chinese as the entire death-toll of World War II worldwide; or that 26 million Russians languished inside the gulags; or that Soviet spies infiltrated the highest levels of Western governments? Or that “Uncle Joe” Stalin cynically exploited the Western powers to crush his greatest threat in Hitler, then turned on those same allies?
Shhh! — did we mention how bad those Nazis were?
In the spirit of fairness, after reading Humberto Fontova’s book on Che, I rented the 2008 Stephen Soderburgh communorgasmic 2-parter Che-O-Rama starring Benicio DelToro. Gritting my teeth, I pressed play. It was generally well-acted, beautifully filmed, and except for being mostly a load of shite, not an unenjoyable film.
Copying the official written biographies, the film depicts the Fidel/ Guevara/ Commie Cuba hagiography of Ernie “The Dude” Guevara. It also represents the t-shirt wearing hero-worship fo the Leftard university student who is vaguely in favour of freedom, rebellion, and a little moral anarchy (especially if it involves that cute young thing in his Sociology 101 class).
The Che who strides through this epic is not the photogenic but often-cowardly strutter and useful idiot of Fidel who saw little military action, and who’d rather supervise executions than risk himself in battle.
According to Fidel (and Soderburgh), the battle of Santa Clara was pretty much World War 1 & 2 combined, plus all the horrible atrocities by the government bad guys– with the mighty Che leading the charge. Not so much.
The actual “battle” was mostly a publicity-stunt. It had been pre-won with bribes to the government troops (Fidel got loot galore from rich anti-Batista Cubans). Very few shots were fired, and it was over so fast that Che ended up literally having to re-enact the dramatically staged train-scene for the Western media and Fidel’s film-crews, and the official history.
Appearance became reality in the typical Communist media-game that was the “Cuban Revolution”. Fidel has created the Che mythology, and retailed it. That’s Soderburgh’s stock in trade, too, intentionally or not.
Who Says What-Now?
We’re now 45+ years since Che died, and 55+ years since the Cuban Communist civil war. However, you won’t get much subtlety or controversy in this depiction.
Communism? or the Russian backing of Fidel? Soviet rubles and advisors? Invisible. The U.S. media tongue-bath for the Cuban revolutionaries? This is more of the same. The death-camps, executions, and vicious war against uppity peasants who didn’t want to be liberated or bossed about by Communists, partly conducted under Che?
To call this a whitewash is to give a bad name to whitewashes everywhere. This is akin to a friendly filming of Mein Kampf. Here is a Hollywood which loved Communism in the 50s and has still not accounted for the famines, the 100 million dead, the gulags, the colonial wars, and the collaboration of Western elites with that programme of merciless blood-letting from 1917 onwards. So we get still even more Nazis in Inglourious Basterds, or Che Part I + II, but a deadly silence about the rest of it.
Soderburgh’s depiction of the Passion Of The Ernie death of Che rehashes the official view, not the facts on the ground. In the film, Rambo/ Che fights to the last bullet, captured at the last extreme of fighting. The reality? While he told his remaining men to go down fighting (they mostly did), their fearless Commandante boldly ran towards the U.S. special forces and Bolivian soldiers– his PPK handgun unemptied– shouting “Don’t shoot! I’m Che! I’m worth more to you alive!”
If Fidel’s Che had ever existed, you could respect him. When you fact-check the man versus the IMAX-sized saviour-figure Soderburgh wants on the official record, and as Deltoro has well-acted, not so much.
Like Stalin, Mao, and so many others with the evil brain-infection of Communism, Che gladly fought to the last drop of other people’s blood. This rehabilitation with bells on merely prolongs the Big Lie, because for most people what they see on the big screen and DVD is reality, and the most history they will ever digest.
For me, the story of Che is ultimately a tragedy of a fallible man who murdered and lied and died for an evil ideology as spread by the evil Soviet empire. He was also a baptized Christian, a human, and someone who might have done much good as a country doctor in Argentina or elsewhere, actually helping peasants rather than impoverishing & enslaving them, for “their own good.”
Poor Little Actor!
Reportedly, Soderburgh & DelToro were upset by all the criticism directed their way by Cuban victims of Che & Fidel and their families, and by right-wing critics. Awwww. Try floating a friendly biopic of another evil sidekick.. maybe Little Henry Himmler, and see what happens? Yup, picture all the t-shirt sales.
Hollywood is still selling the post-war demonization of Nazism as a way of pointing away from Soviet evils, and the popularity of Communism or at least Obamunist hard-socialism in the chattering classes and media. The Cold War is not over for many folks, and Ernie “The Dude” is the icon.
Despite the vivid lessons of 19th & 20th Century history, we still have a choice to make between God, or The Great Man (plus minions) who rules us with an iron hand. This film is unabashedly pro-evil.
Oh, and those Nazis? Really, really bad. ~
P.S. If you watch closely on the 2nd DVD, Hollywood Leftard & Obama-lover Matt Damon makes a forgettable cameo as a Bolivian Communist guy or CIA. Real classy, Matt. Guess we can mark you down in favour of murderous tyrants.
~ ITEM: USA: American Academy Of Pediatrics (AAP) Is Advocating For US Pediatricians To Perform Certain Types of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
~ ITEM: “The Cut” is a short documentary about Mary (14 years old) and Alice (early 20’s) from Kenya. Both are affected by the traditional rite of passage into womanhood: genital cutting
~ POLITICS AND MEDICINE are a toxic mix. Not very Hippocratic, either.
When the Binklings were born, we wanted them circumcised. No way, said the doc: it’s only done (and free) for Jews. This despite all the evidence out there that it’s better from males to be so, in terms of disease & infection. The silly politics of the moment? Circumcision was barbaric, cruel, and pointless.
Tonsils? Ripped out regularly in the past, but medical evidence changed the practice. That’s actual medicine.
So too in the 70’s, when pro-gay radicals hit the American psychological community with full-scale lobbying, and got the definition of homosexuality as an illness rewritten. Not based on evidence, but radical politics.
Now, the weather-vane that is the medical community blows with the winds of politics and fear and political correctness. The American Academy of Pediatrics has apparently bent the knee to Islamic torture & mutilation to girls: clitorectomies. Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
That would be the deliberate hacking out of the clitoris, sometimes together with other parts of the external female genitalia, also including the partial sewing up of the genital opening.
Why? For no actual medical reason, evidence, or necessity known in the history of Western medicine. Hippocratic Oath? Pshaw. Good practice and actual medical need? You’re a bigoted infidel. This is simply monstrous, barbaric, and inhuman. Writes Pamela Geller:
“What next? Wife-beating seminars and its unintended benefits? Or a strip in Vegas for child marriages, so they won’t go overseas for the nuptials? Allowing for this “ritual nick” will not have the effect these nudnik do-gooders imagine. It will have just the opposite effect. Islamic misogyny will be given the seal of approval by the American Academy of Pediatrics.”
The lights are going out in the West, and too many of those who know better are aiding and abetting it.
Fight back now. ~
Doomed For Pork?
~ ITEM: Pig Blood In Cigarettes: A Reason To Quit Smoking?
~ ITEM: Pork, Islam & Hell
~ TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, Pork is one of the evil substances of doom for Islam (haram). Touch or eat it, and you can’t got to heaven, type thing.
Since there’s no allowance for intent or for indulgences in this Islamic dictate, presumably all those Muslims who smoked pork-bloody tobacco products are not only ritually impure, but possibly damned for eternity to Hell, along with the Jews and Christians and suchlike rabble.
“Forbidden to you for (food) are: dead meat, blood and the flesh of the swine and that which hath been invoked the name other than Allah.” [ Koran 5:4 ]
Bummer. Hundreds of millions accidentally damned, unless Muhammed’s rules were not absolute– but I stand to be corrected. No 72 grade 7 chickies for you!
BTW, this infidel prefers his baconized pork smoking in a frypan, and not otherwise. ~
Viva La Devolucion!

~ FOLLOW THE DOTS— While the Superpower under Red Obama continues to disembowel itself financially, the bad guys are not sitting still with popcorn watching the show. While the cat’s not paying attention, the mice will play.
Iran has fingers in many pies (not all that we know about), and nuke inside a year or two (which can be shared with others); Chavez is South America’s would be Fidel; Cuba is still there; the southern border or the U.S. is porous not just to “undocumented pre-Americans” but open to terror and subversion.
Obama and company are literally useless if not collaborating wit the enemies of America– because they think America IS the enemy.
I told you so… the cops are asleep– or on the take. ~
Faerie Dust & MoonWebs
~ ITEM: Pro-Abort Professor: Abortion Involves Deliberate Killing? That’s Still Not A Reason To Be Morally Troubled.
~ ITEM: CONTRA MERCER– Fetus is a human non-person?
~ BACK IN THE DAY, I remember listening on CBC to a very reasonable and impassioned plea for a common basis for ethics from Margo Somerville, an Aussie-born prof in Quebec. Since then, she’s been bashed by the usual politically correct bullies for various crimes against ideology– which makes her all the more commendable in my view.
I wrote to here then, asking about her books, and her attempts to create a secular ethics.
The basic question abides: on what ground? By what authority? Those who reject divine revelation or natural law really have trouble building a foundation for (a) why their system is good or right or better than others, and (b) why anybody else should follow it.
I consider Mark Mercer a friend and a brave-souled agnostic who punches above his weight, and doesn’t back down from a fight. I always link to his latest articles via this blog.
However, I also consider him in the position of Somerville. Secularity was never self-existent or self-justifying; it was originally that sphere within God’s grace and purposes which operated according to law, precedent, and due process. Modern secularity understands itself as ungrounded in the divine or metaphysical or even the classically philosophical.
So in his latest article, Professor Mercer weighs in on the abortion question. He seeks to create a ‘reasonable position’ in which self-awareness is necessary to full humanity.
Not So Much
I say faerie-dust and moonwebs.
Without an ‘absolute’, everything is provisional. You can’t build philosophical castles in the air out of words. Or as Dostoevsky famously put it, “Without God, anything is permissible.” By definition, that’s all our modern revolutionary politics and theiry, which affects us all.
So our modern Canadian experience is all about Chairman Trudeau’s Marxist ‘Just Society’ (for social radicals), versus British North America; the newly tyrannical individual versus the mean old majority; the undercutting of old verities and replacement with the all-powerful mother-state. That’s the dream that gets all those Human Rights weenies hot and bothered: a new perfect society according to the theory, run by them. Woo hoo!
Or in the case of abortion, modern Marxist feminists (to leave unsullied the work of Motherhood-loving, vote-loving legal person-hood loving suffragettes and such ground-breakers) are simply willing to say and do any old thing to avoid dealing with the realities of sex, babies, and male/ female human nature.
That’s not a problem of logic, definitions, or real argument– at best it’s sophistry, at worst that’s evil ill will providing a never-ending cascade of excuses to justify murder of the pre-born.
Smart, well-meaning, brave, kind and folks like Professor Mark Mercer thus find themselves trying to fasten down serious issues to dissolving clouds, with faerie and moonwebs… or justifying the slaughter of preborn boys and girls. ~
RIP A Cult Classic Artist
~ BACK IN THE TEEN-AGED DAY, I was a big Conan The Barbarian fan. It was the art, the toothsome wenches, the general kick-ass. Kinda like ‘300’, except in books.
Biceps Schwarzenegger killed it for me (after all, the movie Red Sonja was better than the first Conan flick, and almost better than the second), but I still note with nostalgia the passing of one of fantasy-arts greats, Frank Frazetta, a Conan cover-art illustrator. Hot-babes and muscled dudes and dark monsters were his stock in trade. Boris Vallejo was in there, too– but it looked a little too posed: not the same.
And yes, my angst-y teen self sometimes wished he were mighty Conan. Confessio.
The Elf hasn’t read Conan for years, but thanks for the memories, Frank. May you rest in peace, and rise in glory, through the mercies of Christ the true conquerer. ~
Ancient 3D Goodness
~ WE CAN NOW SEE AGAIN SOME OF ANCIENT EPHESUS, in 3d computer reconstruction. This is very cool.
Ephesus (in modern-day Turkey) was the city where St. Paul the Apostle preached, and where St. John the Evangelist was bishop– and reputedly where Blessed Mary, the Mother of God lived out her days.
Some movies overwhelm with pixellated whatnot– but the flip-side is academic nerds and others recreating ancient history so we can better visualize and understand what existed in the past– at least according to the latest evidence & academic squabbling.
Spasms of nerdulous joy ensue. ~

“The selfish gamble implicit in the welfare state is that, though most people know on some level that spending in excess of revenue isn’t a very fiscally responsible long-term plan on which to build a stable society, many are willing to bet that resources won’t run out in the short term — which means these types of voters believe they will still get theirs so long as they continue to “vote in their own economic interests.” Future generations? Not their problem. And besides. If their kids don’t like being poor, let them do what everyone does to climb out of poverty: get a government job.”
