The other day, I got an e-mail from a Western Canadian she-blogger who shall remain nameless, except that she’s evil, heartless, hated by all the usual revolting enemies, and loves her widdle smoochy-woochy doggies. About what, you ask?
It turns out that a certain noted blog-scourge & Binks-beleaguerer had called her up, to plead for advice about what to do. He’d written a bash-Canada piece 5 years ago, gone to the U.S., but now found that the interwebs were haunting him with his old views.. and that was online for his possible new employers, too.
After asking blogs to remove their posts, he escalated things, then MAD-blogger got Binks involved, and he told two friends, and they told two friends.. and the web-problem became a 5-alarm headache for said Canadian doctor & border-crosser. He’s not a lawfaring jihadi or anything such, just a guy who didn’t know how to make it right.
Said evil she-blogger said (1) stop pestering, and (2) apologize directly, and (3) do it now.
Making A Sacrifice
In that spirit, I’m proud to say that Binks, Jay Currie, Mitchieville, Walker Morrow, Blazing Catfur, Backseat Blogger, and Right Girl have all offlined their posts.. and the offender even sent along a $500.00 donation to the Blazing Catfur Legal Fund.
We all make mistakes; get into escalating things; perhaps need a fresh start and some kindness and gentlenes s with our mistakes, public or private.
It ain’t over, but it’s better. Like I said: you just neve know what’s coming up– but it’s nice to be pleasantly surprised once in a while. ~

~ COLD-BLOODED MASS-MURDER of Christians during a Catholic mass. By Jihadists. And the apologists blame everybody but the trigger-pullers, bombers, and blood-stained monsters who slaughtered men, women and children– and the two parish priests– during a Sunday service.
“Christians are slaughtered in Iraq, in their homes and churches, and the so-called ‘free’ world is watching in complete indifference, interested only in responding in a way that is politically correct and economically opportune, but in reality is hypocritical,” said Syriac Catholic Patriarch Ignace Joseph III Younan after these latest killings.
Yes, these are martyrs, slain lambs like Christ himself, because of Mohammed’s demonic hatred of Jews and Christians. That they are not wearing Roman robes depicted in a nice old picture is perhaps jarring to us.. as is the thought that hundreds of millions of Christians are suffering for that faith around the world.. especially but not only in Muslim lands.
What Militant Islam Does
Look at these pictures, and don’t look away. No, not as horror-porn. As pictures of people like you and your loved ones, ordinary church-folk, people with names and homes and ordinary dreams and troubles. The Christians of Iraq have historic roots back to the earliest days of the church.. even via Judaism back to the exile in Babylon. This is what Muslim Brotherhood Islam does.
That these are brown-skinned matters not to a true Christian, nor even a basic human with a fragment of minor human decency. Most Christians today are not white, or male, nor living in the Western world, where liberalism, bad music, greed & comfort & safety have emptied the pews.
What The Fluff?
As De Souza points out in his op/ed piece,”The American State Department had no statement at all.” A threatened Koran burning? POTUS himself intervenes. This? Horrid silence that speaks a library of words, and of weakness & failure. After all, the U.S. government types are busy fighting for Muslim Brotherhood causes in America.
Have we lost all capacity for horror? Outrage? Common compassion? Ordinary humanity? Have countless special-effects and blood-soaked movies doomed our ability to sorrow for real suffering?
A beheaded 4-month old, in the name of Islam. What part of that is unclear?
Stand Or Fall
This is what the Liberals are frightened of; this is what we face. I stand with Christ and the ever-growing list of martyred Christians who have died under the sword, the lash, the slavery of Islam, for 1400 years.
I stand with Mark Steyn, who himself stands under any number of death-threats– and he says “You will have to kill us all.” ~

(1) Just imagine how well the GOP/ Tea Partiers would have done without the Dem voter fraud, pre-stuffed ballot-boxes, offshore money, and the American League of Dead & Imaginary Voters!
(2) Obama is cornered.. be afraid. He’s a vicious book-nerd, and this electoral rebuke threatens not only his place in history-books, but his 2012-16 victory march and dancing golfing on the grave of the old America. Expect every dirty play, lie, and extremifying move you can imagine– and some you can’t. The Bible verses that come to mind for some reason are “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.” [ 1 Peter 5:8 ] Plus “Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.” [ Revelation 12:12 ]
(3) Thank you America, and GOP/ Tea Party. Now don’t screw this up again, mmkay Republicans?

~ ITEM: Sharia sweeping over the west
~ ITEM: The Muslim Brotherhood Connections to Global Islamic Supremacist Organisations
~ ITEM: The Canadian Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood Presents a Conference on Islamophobia
~ IMAGINE IF OL’ ADOLF had started a ‘Nazification’ cult, instead of the blitzkreig. That’s the Muslim Brotherhood. Nazis, minus most of the drama & stylish uniforms, with 1/2 the violence.
They are the “They” behind Palestinian radicalization, Egyptian fundamentalism & violence, European Caliphatism, al Qaedaism, and the plans to take out America as The Great Satan. The Brains-Trust; the blueprint; the “reformed” modern Islam that unifies all the radicals around the world, at least ideologically, from Birmingham and Dearbornistan to Kabul and Cairo.
Before 9/11, these guys weren’t on the radar. Brotherhood? Sounds cuddly, or something. Not so much.
This is the story of a nerdy Egyptian academic, and Tariq Ramadan’s grand-daddy. Nerdy academic Syed Qutb goes to a 1947 American college town, and is shocked by slutty women, college dances, materialims and moral turpitude. He goes home, seeking ‘a better way’ for Egypt in the post-war world, having rejected modernity.
Home Again, Home Again
Qutb turns back not to the rural Islam of his childhood, but to the ‘renewal Islam’ preached by Hassan Al-Banna beginning in 1928. Politically aggressive, ‘The Society Of The Muslim Brothers’ seeks the replacement of corrupt only nominally Islamic regimes like Egypt and elsewhere, it also reaches out in good works to neglected communities and needs, and emphasizes education in the Koran and the new-style Islam. So a new Islamic empire will recover the lost glories of the past.
“Jihad in its literal significance means to put forth one’s maximal effort in word and deed; in the Sacred Law it is the slaying of the unbelievers, and related connotations such as beating them, plundering their wealth, destroying their shrines, and smashing their idols.” and “it is obligatory on us to begin fighting with them after transmitting the invitation [to embrace Islam], even if they do not fight against us.”
Islam & Hitlerism
Using Hitler’s Mein Kampf & the European forgery of ‘The Protocols of The Elders Of Zion, the MB has always been virulently antisemitic and anti-Western. Brotherhood leaders sought links to the Nazis, and anti-Zionist terrorism.
The MB then appeals to ever-growing numbers of students and intellectuals, bridging the gap between the younger generation and the older insitutions of islamic learning. It has acted as a kind of Islamic International, inspiring Jihadism, al-Qaeda, and generous support from oil-rich nations. The Muslim Brotherhood became the root of the Palestinian conflict, and changed the Muslim world in a more radical and organized direction, especially after World War II.
After Al-banna is assassinated, his son-in-law Said Ramadan takes over, and spreads the project to Europe under the guise of various institutes and projects; under his wing, Said’s son Tariq Ramadan retails the same Muslim Brotherhood message to the world, shaped for a modern audience under a wealth of doublespeak. Hamas, Hizbullah, all the rest owe their ideology and modus operandi to the MB.
America, Canada, and Europe are thoroughly infiltrated in many places by the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, The MSA, MAC, and their Canadian affiliates are all about the slow conquest of the corrupt West by a confident and renewed Jihadist Islam: pushing, insisting, complaining, seeking accomodation and ever more legal space for sharia law.
You’re A Phobical!
Hence the clever taking on of the Left-wing greivance-culture of the feminist & homosexual liberation movements: Islamophobia! Any criticism, cautioning, or even asking about Islam is due only and always to insane irrational feat, bigotry, and evilness. When Western leaders and opinion makers buy into this, it means nobody can question anything, and moderate non MB Muslims are silenced.
For those Leftists who say every time a critic takes on Muslim Brotherhoodies “Racist! You’re attacking Islam!”, these guys are militant extremists. The other Muslim folks are other folks, often under pressure & criticism themselves from the B’Hood types. Not all Italians are mafia. Mafia are mafia. Unless you Lefties are forbidding criticism of the MBs, in which case you are already their bitches.
The next time you see ‘Muslim Brotherhood, think “a ‘Nazification’ cult”. Zieg Heil. ~

~ WHEN THE MUCH-REVILED Dubya Bush showed up in Iraq to personally serve Thanksgiving turkey to the troops, the Liberal press went insane. “It’s A PLASTIC Turkey!” ( of course it wasn’t).
But he went. And this elf is guessing that the arrangements were entirely unlike Obama’s recent $200 million 3000-man Indian travelpalooza. Witness:
“The tunnel would be a kilometre long and measure 12ft by 12ft — enough to let Obama’s cavalcade pass through. The tunnel would be centrally air-conditioned, fitted with close-circuit television cameras, and will be heavily guarded at every point, including, of course, its entry and exit.”
No cooties.. got it, Mr. President.
Dubya? A man’s man. Cowboy. Gun-shooter. Rancher. Former military guy. Hardcore cross-country cyclist. Not a metrosexual who enables Jihadism & extremism and then makes darn sure he is kept super-safe from it, let alone dirty ordinary people.
The Obama Bubble
Obama is a typical privileged liberal who’s probably never even held a gun, had a fist-fight (at least since he stopped smoking up) or a bloody nose, or operated much in the real real world.
It means that he doesn’t understand reality, people, or what it costs to defend freedom. That he’s one of those folks who fights to the last drop of other people’s blood. Unlike his alleged hero Abraham Lincoln (who actually had a job, and knew what hardship & business-startup was like, and grew up and lived amongst ordinary people as one of them), you just don’t get a sense that he’s wept & suffered for his nation. ~

~ THE DEBT-BOMB is now in plain sight in the U.S.– the Midterms are partly a referendum on the debt-insanity which Americans have indulged in for a generaton. Obama deserves credit for that, at least– his trillionaire ways have highlighted the wider problem.
Personal, corporate, national and international debt is the tsunami posed over everything right now. No money down, 12 months to pay? It’s 12 months plus a day for 30 years of financial insanity, greed, luxury, envy, denial and credit to the skies.
The United States is bankrupt, no matter who is currently running it or ruining it more. The austerity measures needed for a nation to not only stop piling on new debt, but to pay down the existing? Hard to imagine a leader brave enough to take those measures, and survive the ensuing economic and societal disruption.
The Finger Of Blame
It’s not just them on high at fault– it’s credit cards and easy terms and refinancing and mega-mortgages and treating ourselves and spending to the limit and beyond. Saving, frugality, and paying in cash became old-fashioned values in the new prosperity. We all did this, or enjoyed the unaffordable social programs, or spent & spent.
Predatory credit card companies made it easier, and charged ever-higher rates due to state competition & deregulation; cynical politicians bought us and our votes with our own money; businesses extended easy credit; nobody wanted to ask what happens when the piper must be paid.
Add to that the Western birth-dearth, the aging crowd about to spend the social safety net and health care into the ground, and even the next 25 years of life in Canada is not as rosy as we might wish. Ordinary Canuckis sense that things are still risky.. so we’re not spending, we’re doing less with less, and cutting back on extras, using coupons, buying less for Christmas. Whether consumer debt is going down, most people are at least not building that debt.
Mark Steyn is right. ~

~ IT MAY BE that this blogger is behind the times, but word arrives of a new ‘white poppy’, presumably from France. It’s for the genteel clever self-hating West-bashing benefactor of the disasterous European wars of the last centurey, cuz everybody knows good and evil is relative type thing, and war is icky.
War is hell, you say? Golly gee, I’ll just bet that’s a total head-smacker for wartime veterans and their families, eh wot? And here they thought it was a jolly camping jaunt minus the beer. That sure is what you see in Tom Hank’s real contribution to culture, the HBO specials Band Of Brothers, and The Pacific. Not so much.
I remember once chilly Cape Breton Remembrance Day meeting a vet of the same unit my maternal grandfather (Grampa George) served in, and saw in his eye the same look my Grandfather got when he talked about his time in Burma. He and my grandfather were in a scrounger unit, part of the 435 “Chinthe” Transport and Rescue Squadron, where they spend a lot of time remaking vehicles & planes out of wrecked, shot up, or broken down stuff. That veteran couldn’t talk about those days, but you could hear it all in his tears.
My Grandfather, 1943
Gone But.. Forgotten?
As each flag-marked obituary shows up in newspapers across the country, the living memory of that life-changing time fades. So it is– but we have new veterans and lost soldiers in our new kind of asymmetrical war against the Muslim Brothergood & global jihad. Some wear uniforms, some are loyal Canadians within extremist communities, some are defence analysts and academics, others are bloggers and ordinary folks making sure that they understand and warn about the shape of what I call WW4 (the Cold War having been WW3).
Our elites– the war-haters and progrssive utopiatarians of all stripes– imagine themselves the only bulwark against the tide of militaristical patriarchal imperial war-mongering.. but we’ve met their type before, in every war. Appeasers.. pacifists.. ostriches.. those who refuse to see that the best offence is a good defence. Obama is currently out-cutting Clinton & Carter in laying the U.S. open to global military impotence– doing more with less, and yet to the point that her global obligations as the world rescuer and peacekeeper is seriously under threat.
The most recent former global power Britain tried the appeasement-thing in the 1930s, under several prime ministers, despite clear warnings and detailed evidence from Europe exactly what the Nazis were up to from day one. It almost cost Europe Europe itself, and a near-run victory for Britain and the Allies.
Remember– white poppies remind people that “you don’t have to go to war to get peace.” Not really. Evil people who hate us just love peace-movements– that’s why, say in the 1950’s and onwards, the Soviet Union secretly but generously funded Western European & North American peace & anti-nuke groups. Such folk were against nukes alright– especially non-Russian ones.
A few Islamo-nukes in England, France, and the U.S., and what would a 3am Obama really do? A new apology tour? Blame America first? A new stimulus package?
Time is what’s saving us at the moment, and that’s running short geopolitically, for a feckless American/ Western outlook that sees a white poppy as the best expression of what others have sacrificed so we might surrender it all with a shrug. Defeating the Obama Presidency is key, but so is a recovered confidence and hope that what we have and who we are is worth living and fighting for, and passing on to our posterity.
White poppy people? Bugger Off & Stop touching other people’s stuff, whydontcha? You already got the peace-sign, the footprint of the great international chicken. ~

A lot of our movies and stories are all about people playing God in various ways, with all the unpleasant consequences. The Fly, Frankenstein, The Planet Of The Apes, Lord Of The Rings, any apocalyptic movie involving plagues, nukes, or zombies.. you get the idea.
Remember the old story of Prometheus, the Greek god who brought fire to mankind? According to the myth, he also brought us blind desires: so we have power, but we’re off in all directions, some of them very bad indeed. Or again, the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, who despite living in paradise, were somehow restless and discontented. We’re them.
Make It So!
The technological mindset– whereby we moderns have power over nature, and change or remake things in a way unimagined by all past generations– has been applied by social radicals to society and the family. The Marxists knew that along with church, family unity & loyalty as the first society in which children grow & learn was a primary threat to the revolution, and the power of the party over all details of life. Thus, Marxists of all stripes have attacked the basic family– nuclear or extended, but man+woman=babies– via pills, ideology, education, radical politics, sex-ed ideology, legal changes, tax-penalties, and the feminist gender wars.
Dare interfere with the environment & habitat of the Sputtering Spotted Toadwort, and beware the wrath of enviroids and tree-huggers everywhere; lob grenades into the basic family environment of human children, and you’re a bold radical re-envisioning the shape and paradigm of human relatedness.
The Marxists were right, though evil– diminish & wreck the family, and enslavement of the kids & society is easier. The Marxists & do-gooders and various “disenfranchised sexual minorities” of narcissistic adults looking after their sexual wants and anarchic dreams of liberation seek kids as– extraneous. Then it boils down to the rest of us.
We Done Gone Crazy
Every society ever except segments of the modern West have seen kids– the propagation, protection, nurturing, and education of same– as one of the primary goals of society & civilization & invention. Those amongst us who think otherwise are not merely different, but in some ways dehumanized, and cruel. Such people are directly or indirectly willing the enslavement and extinction of humanity, and the free human person.
They are like the robotic Agent Smith in The Matrix, who see humanity as a toxic virus. This view is evil, however sincerely held, even if backed up by experts, books, educators, op-ed pages, and the other people whose business is to disrupt and undermine and wreck what is, for envy and vain hellish dreams of what might be. ~

Given most anarchic, hedonistic, or occult-friendly rock types, I was pretty sure you could hear Satanic messages by playing certain rock-albums & songs forwards. The Seven Deadly Sins are still pretty popular, after all.
Whether the current POTUS is partly or slightly or entirely Muslim on the inside, he’s certainly a biased pro-Muslim politican who is allowing extremists inside his White House, and his State Department to front & defend for the Muslim Brotherhood. He’s given a pass to Iranian nukes. He’s funding Palestinians even while Americans are unemployed and America is broke.
Let Me Be Perfectly Clear
That is, U.S. President Obama’s punishing Israel & America, and is aiding and abetting the power, spread and influence of the Muslim Brotherhood. Whether he’s Muslim or a Jeremiah Wright racist or a flipping Rastafarian is immaterial; he’s an enabler of the soft & hard Jihad worldwide.

Over & Over & Over
~ ITEM: Fun with copyright
~ ITEM: Microsoft And Their Never Ending Battle Against Piracy
~ SO HOW MANY times do we have to buy the same piece of music, movie, or other media?
I’ve bought Star Wars 5-6 times… new formats, the platinum director’s cut ultimate editions, then DVD. But not the latest version. Dire Straits Brothers In Arms? 3 times. Most other music or movies, 2-3 times. Lord of the Rings/ Hobbit books? 5-6 times, at current count… and my parents had the Hobbit on LP & cassette years ago. We’ve sold most of the old VHS tapes, now– but not yet replaced them all… and there are still boxes of audio-cassettes around.
No doubt when the new NanoLiquiGel-laser terabyte “3D realler than really real” media comes out, part of my mind will want to update again. But really? How real & crisp does a movie have to be? So no imaginative input is required at all, just passive absorbtion? Feh.
The copyright wars rage over a new generation raised to want & consume & download free pirated media– Napster, Limewire, Frostwire, Pirate Bay, and a dozen other clients make free stuff tempting, easy to scarf, and pass around. You know, cuz those rich people and companies are rich and stuff. Thing is, the young ‘uns never bought the DVD or CD or .mp3 file in the first place, so I judge that moral stance mere thievery with a lame excuse.
The Great Wall Of Media
In response, corporate & national lawmakers try to up the copyright wall, but without much success. Apple, MicroSoft and others have spyware to see if you’re running stealware– but then the hacvkers come up with new ways to get around that. Just last month LimeWire was shut down; Pirate Bay has had a running firefight with governments and media-companies for years. Such ‘free media providers’ also use the claim of online freedom, fighting the man, and digital rights for all– but that seems indeed a pirate’s creed, not the conniption they’d have if people were stealing their intellectual property.
5-Finger Discount, Old-School
Back in the day, if you wanted to steal music, you phusically had to go to the store in a baggy coat and slip it under your coat and hope to get out the door without a police record. A sad side-effect of the digital revolution– like the VCR & Cable revolution, which quietly porned so many homes and hearts, or the cassette revolution, which started widespread music piracy– is that stealing is now effortless, and thus easier to call taking other people’s stuff something else.
Each new power or technology brings new forms of old temptations, moral questions, and difficulties. This war is raging world-wide, but our kids & grandkids are the frontlines, whether we know it or not. ~
A Great Fillum
Warning: spoilers follow.
~ ITEM: Robin Hood
~ ITEM: Russell Crowe Helps a friend with a cause
~ FINALLY GOT AROUND TO watching the new Robin Hood with Cate Blanchett & Russell Crowe. Aside from the usual mucking about with English history, it’s rollicking good fun, beautifully filmed by Ridley Scott, and well-played by all concerned.
The major problem with this movie in terms of dramatic power is that in the original stories, John’s misrule takes place during the crusading & other military adventures of the ‘good king’ Richard. The king who is to return and restore right rule and justice against the evil John and his cronies like the horrid Sherriff of Nottingham– that’s the frame, as it were, of the story.
It’s like Aragorn in The Lord of The Rings, the King promised to return, to defeat evil and restore a better kingdom. The story is partly about his awaiting the right time, and finding the true way to his own destiny. Peter Jackson’s waffling Aragorn misses the point: it’s not indecision or shame, but prudence and discernment that guides him.
Director Vs. Stubborn Facts
Unfortunately, Ridley Scott values pretty over history– even when the history is actually more dramatic. The ‘document’ which Robin Hood brings to the gathering with the King was the one I’ve already written about a little while back in Steynian 416 & 418: Freedom: Ad Fontes, and Fountain Of Freedom, 2– the Charter of Liberties of AD1100.
Of course,it’s all very dramatic having Robin Hood’s democratic dad be the author, but it’s historical & dramatic nonsense– just like in Gladiator, when Ridley Scott has the ailing Emperor Marcus Aurelius asking General Maximus to “restore democracy” to Rome.. you know, like before the Emperors ruled. Snort. Balderdash, and a historical preaching of modernist whatnot. Ah well, so movies aren’t perfect. I’ll get over it.
After all that, yet the speech Robin Hood gives owes much to the AD1100 Charter Of Liberties, and is a stirring reminder both of England’s tradition of liberty under law, and the role of the ordinary folk in forming the modern form of freedom which we have– though we’ve tried to divorce it from God & religion, and any ‘natural law’ of right & wrong written into life & human nature by God.
After all, a nation is the people, not only the red-tapers, experts, tax-gatherers, chattering classes, or big-wigs.
Enter The Mighty Scots
The ClanRanald Re-enactors
The other cool thing I like about Robin Hood 2010 is the clear love of authentic-ish detail, and for that Scott hired the Scottish re-enactors group started by Charlie Allan. You’ll remember Allan as the giant barbarian king at the giant battle which begins Gladiator, between the Romans and the Germanic tribe. He’s also a musician, a native Scotophile, and has started a large historical project in Scotland to create an authentic 13th century village and fort, under the Clanranald Trust.
Worst fail? That bizarre final battle, D-Day Landings by knights in shining armour? Painful theft of Saving Private Ryan. And oddly enough, even William the Conquerer, who did invade England by ship in 1066, never did so at the base of a cliff. Suicidal.
Rent the movie, love it, and remember the great facts of history, wonderfully depicted by a great– if sometimes factually-crippled– filmographer. ~

“Truth and freedom are closely and necessarily related. Honestly seeking and aspiring to truth is the condition of authentic freedom. One cannot live without the other. The Church, which desires to serve unreservedly the human person and his dignity, stands at the service of both truth and freedom. She cannot renounce either, because what is at stake is man himself, because she is moved by love for man, ‘the only creature on earth which God has wanted for its own sake’, and because without this aspiration for truth, justice and freedom, man would lose his very self.”
