Binks: Terribly, Terribly Wrong
“… [I]f the 9/11 mosque is actually built, based on the amount of controversy it has already generated, there is reason to believe that it will be a permanent source of attention, provocation, and scrutiny — that is, a permanent source of exposure for the Islamist movement.”
~ Raymond Ibraham ~
~ ITEM: Support the “Infidels Suck” monument next to the twin towers!
~ ITEM: Mireille Silcoff: How dare they build this so close to Ground Zero?
~ ITEM: David Frum says Muslims have “a right”–yes, that’s right, “a right”– to build their ginormous triumphalist mosque at Ground Zero
~ ITEM: George Stephanopoulos Defends Ground Zero Mosque: What Better Way to Say Terrorists Haven’t Won?
~ IT’S NOT OFTEN that the Binks admits being w****.. [cough] er– uh.. mm right then, well: w.r.o.n.g.– erhm, OK Icandothis: WRONG.. let alone terribly, terribly wrong.
However, it’s clear that my opposition to the proposed Ground Zero Hate-Site is just clueless and overly Westernized wimpery. We need that building. We need to have it up, and remember all the illicit and terroristic funding (especially $$ from Al Qaeda, who also blew up the Twin Towers.. coincidence, huh?). New Yorkers need a daily reminder of all their dead neighbours, co-workers, parents and friends, police and firefighters. We all need to remember that jihad is bloodthirsty, and Islam really isn’t a religion of peace– at least for the evil illegitimi who want to enslave everybody else.
We need to be reminded by the shiny $100 million Ground Zero Mosque that infidels suck, that the jihadist Allah is Sauron, that they want us to be their bitches forever. Very poignant.
Tour buses can come from All over America and the world– look: here are the perps who did it. Street-merch sellers can offer air-horns and vuvazelas and shofars and those “I visited Ground Zero And The Mosque beside it, and all I got was sad, and then really mad” and “Proud Infidel” t-shirts. Then there’s the bacon-dog vendors, sidewalk dog-shows, impromptu hasidic dancing & happy shalom-time, billboards of the motoons, and all the rest. Maybe even a bungee-jump to re-enact the Twin Towers suicide-jumpers?
Plus the liberals can drop by for their white flags and to make their official surrenders. Hurray!
Keeps On Giving
Convenient, one-stop, endlessly rewarding; an aching pus-oozing gaping wound in the heart of Gotham, and America, exposing the subversion and hate and civilization-wrecking project that is modern Jihadist shariac supremacism. Sounds like a plan.
No more illusions, tippy-toeing, or craptastic nuanced nonsense and weasel-words about a “religion of telerance & respect & peace”.
Just say “yes” to the evil Ground Zero Mosque! ~
Elf At The Movies
~ TWO RECENT FLICKS seen by the Binks and enjoyed in various ways– Clash Of The Titans, and Alice In Wonderland. The first was a remake of the kitschy 1980s film of the same name, together with an awful lot of Disney’s 1997 cartoon movie Hercules. It was good for what it was, if loosely based on the original Greek stories of Perseus. 7.5-ish for the manly killing things & breaking stuff.
Alice in Wonderland is a Disney film but not really for little kids, or lovers of the books. Johnny ‘Mad Hatter’ Depp rocks, the Alice is believable, but it’s essentially a girl-led rescue film where we get the feminist lesson that “nobody can tell me what to do.” Alice ends up (returned from Wonderland) rejecting a pre-arranged marriage, and sailing off on some commercial adventure. 8.0+ in parts, but a final 6.0 at best.
Both were ultimately ‘thuds’ because (a) we’d seen it all before, and (b) in Alice the fantastic/ mythic elements were all off, and the final message too much of liberation, and not enough of an emotionally fulfilling & intelligible ending. Even if Alice had said to Lord Snootles her alleged fiancé “I will marry one day, but for love”, it would have made more sense. It’s as if you eagerly dipped into a bowl of chocolate ice-cream, and found it tasted of hot salsa.
Two flicks from the vantage of teh Binks’ tiny brain. ~
A Bright New Inquisition
~ OVER AND OVER WE HEAR from the militant ‘Brights’/ atheist community how bad religion– especially Christianity– really is. Intellectually repressive, narrow-minded, dogmatic & judgmental, irrational and intolerant of other views and then there was the whole Crusade-thing and the Inquisition, plus the witch-burnings, where hundreds of millions probably perished or something.
Witness Pat Condell, getting unfriendly-fire from his own alleged co-nonreligionists, because of recent comments. What-now?
The more I see the atheist political tendency (and look back on it in the 18th & 19th & 20th century), the more I see an anti-Christian materialist religion of alleged reason. Strangely enough, like the accusations they fling against faith, the more vocal these reasonists get, the nastier and more arbitrarily irrational they seem– inquisitional, hide-bound, judgmental, intellectually repressive, intolerant of other views.
The Ties That Bind
After all, the original Latin ‘religio’ does not automatically mean something ‘spiritual’, but ‘the things you are bound to’. Athiests– being imperfect humans– will not tend to perfection, but repetition of human tendencies and mistakes and uglinesses. Perhaps, like the monsters leading the French Revolution, the Brights will excuse themselves as doing necessary evil: but what resulted from their bloodbaths and secret police and thought-control was not a perfect rational society, but the bigger monster of ego and destruction, Napoleon. Or again, worshipping Darwin has led to racist fascism, eugenics, birth control, and countless death.
I deeply respect the intelligence and integrity and bravery of Pat Condell, even though he is wrong about God– yet as a child of God nontheless, he sees enough of the truth in what he does believe to hold onto it and defend it.
Shame on the narrow-minded godless jerks picking on him. Maybe they will see themselves in the mirror for what they are– worse, indeed, than the religious caricatures they draw of their Christian enemies, since they are supposed to be so much the wiser & enlightened ones. ~
Osama & His Merry Men
~ ITEM: KHADR-FOLLIES, REDUX– ‘Al-Qaeda weapons supplier’ freed in Toronto after a judge refused to extradite him to the US. Idiot in question: Superior Court Justice Christopher Speyer
~ ITEM: The administration’s denial of “radical Islam” is dangerous, dishonest, and demoralizing – Charles Krauthammer
~ FOR ADMIRERS of the heroic William Wallace, Robin Hood, Spartacus, or the WW2 European resistance, there is an element of that same cleverness in elements of the jihad, which is a peasant/ medieval thing, despite the borrowed, stolen, or co-opted technology. Plus teh added crazy.
It’s a basic lesson of warfare as old as humanity: peasant cleverness in turning the strengths and weapons and ideas of an overwhelming enemy against that enemy– fight your war, or their war on your terms, and always keep them guessing what comes next. It’s sometimes ugly, but it can be effective.
Hence the ‘using our own money and laws and weapons against us’ thing is all part of the current game. So is lying about doing it, and hiding in plain sight, and making fun of us for being so naive, gullible and/ or feckwitted. Jesus said “For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.” [ Luke 16:1-8 ]. Shrewdness in war can make all the difference, even if you’re the bad guys.
If we’re going to beat the current Jihad and it’s tactics of terror and civilians as targets, we cannot plan and act as if (a) they think like us, and (b) they are fighting our kind of war. Indeed, these are vicious God-mad warriors– that is the root of their hate, and action, and hope. To do the “religion of peace” thing and try and understand jihadi-shariacs is a lost enterprise.
Because we misunderstand authentic religious motivation these days, and are intellectually hamstrung from judging and assessing wrong-headed ideologies, it’s likely we’ll keep bungling along, and they’ll keep pantsing us rather more than we expected.
Thankfully, the hard men and women behind the scenes who’ve prevented any number of repeat 9-11ses operate by more effective means; and there are more and more signs– witness Newt Gingrich’s recent efforts– that even the DC establishment is realizing this isn’t politics or war as usual. ~
Hiroshima Guilt Day
“Are there any Hiroshima memorials in any one of the countries formerly occupied by Japan? Are they, too, gathering today to conduct a public circle-jerk of phony “guilt” for the bombs dropped on their erstwhile conquerers? No? Really? Why the hell not? Goddam ungrateful Chinese, Koreans, Indonesians, Philipinos, Malaysians, Burmese and Cambodians! Fall on your knees and BEG that the Japanese forgive you!”
~ ITEM: Happy Hiroshima Day!
~ NUCLEAR BOMBS ARE ONE of those very bad things made up by the unrestrained scientific cult. I wish they’d never come to be, and that we could unknow such evils.
However, the endless hand-wringing over bombing Japan– which was only a year behind the Americans and according to some theories tested a small nuke [ “genzai bakudan“, or greatest warrior ] at Konan in what is now Northeast North Korea on August 12th 1945. The Japanese High Command would have gladly nuked the Panama Canal, San Diego and San Francisco, and Los Angeles, given enough time.
Hence the worship of the suffering of Hiroshima is an ugly remnant of the anti-nuke Soviet-funded leftist cult that magically wishes that by sort of abolishing what we know, it won’t ever happen. Funny how those same Hiroshima/ Nagasaki apology folks aren’t out in the streets protesting Iran, which is almost a nuclear power, and far more likely than the U.S. to use them to hurt people and incinerate cities on a whim. Or Pakistan, which is increasingly Talibanized and already has Teh Bomb. Or how about back in the mid-60’s, when Che & Fidel almost brought about World War III?
Oh, right “America Sucks”, and all that.
The Missing War Crimes Trials
It was post-war realpolitik that allowed Japan to almost entirely avoid a Nuremburg War Crimes Trials reckoning of her imperial adventures. Under MacArthur, Japan was to be Americanized and used as a bulwark against Soviet imperialism in Asia, and so let’s not embarrass our new friends with the whole story of what they did, how many millions killed, enslaved, raped, tortured, and all the rest.
The seemingly endless festival of Western self-hate could then fixate on the admittedly horrible bombings to argue– whatever alternate history of World War Two they like, since the real one happened, and did not end in 1947 with millions upon millions of dead Americans and Japanese, given the protracted horrors of proposed fighting on the Japanese homeland.
If Wishes Were Fishes
Sorry, but while I wish the path of modern science might have been different, and that Japanese imperialism hadn’t gone bonkers with world domination- nor that Soviet Spies had helped spread the bomb world-wide, the genie is out of the bottle; Pandora can’t un-open the box of horrors; the human heart will always have to account for the terrible powers we wield while being unwise and imperfect.
Here’s: The Thing
Here’s the thing: what-iffery and second-guessing is unfair to the people at the time. Plus, when the militaristic Japanese regime started their war against Asia (1930s) and then America & the world (1939, 1941), it was choosing all the consequences ahead, known and unknown, intended or not. Including being nuked, and defeat.
It’s call the suckitude of reality, and consequences, and the blindness of human beings to know how far and how badly those consequences may extend.
Besides– I also like nuclear power, as does most of the world except the U.S. Democrats. I think Godzilla represents the undigested evil of World War II, still haunting a guilty and blood-soaked Japan run mad, and never fully expiated. Stick that in your peace-drum and beat it.
No more apologies– except for all the apologizing. ~
~ IT’S ALWAYS fun to mock jargon, but I’ve got a few more for the list– (1) Way.. as in ‘special way’ or ‘whole new way’; (2) About. around.. like ‘ talk about’ or ‘around that issue’. It’s a kind of neo-Marxist swamp-talk which encourages and reproduces sloppy hive-mind & politically correct speech & thinking.
Sadly, it’s the default stupid-mode for a lot of progressives, feminists, academics, politicians and suchlike. It also shows up in a lot of painfully flatulent talk from church-pulpits these days– as spread by liberal sewers of crazyism known as theology schools.
There’s a reason languages Like Latin, Classical Greek, Hebrew and Koine Greek are no longer taught in high schools, universities, or many liberal seminaries. It allows too much precision in thought and reading and ideas.
Too much thinking and clarity always complicates things for our betters & would-be masters. ~
~ REMEMBER how we heard endlessly about Christian lunatics taking over America during the theocratical presidency of Bush 2.0? You know, Dubya read the Bible, prayed for God’s wisdom as to what to do, and even appointed a Pentecostal to his cabinet. Jebuspocalypse now. The relics of the Bush/Jesus hate-fest are all over teh interwebs, and still smouldering in the hatey minds of the Leftards.
No such connect with the progressive cultists now pillaging the land– they are no threat, it seems. I beg to differ.
Theoretically at least, Bush & company had some limits other than their own imagination and will to power. You know– Ten Commandments, Beatitudes, will of God, Last Judgment. However imperfectly, I do not doubt that Bush and Co. knew they were and are accountable to a Higher Power.
Ask yourself– who, exactly, is the current POTUS accountable to? Allah? Jesus? George Soros? The Sleeveless One? Your guess is as good as mine– or probably his.
The practical atheism of the current American regime means anything is possible– no limits, no accountability, no last round-up, no higher authority or standard. He lies, and steals elections– So? He sells out– What about it? He panders to Islam?– prove it. He wreckifies the Constitution– Who says? I could go on and on and on.
Progressives of the Left and Right are the real issue in America, because– like all revolutionaries– they tolerate no limits except their own arbitrary whims and alleged principles. Obama and his cronies are the very spirit of the age, chasing itself in circles, and reaping destruction on everybody else. ~
