Willing To Help Out?

Thus saith

Teh Binks

All. The. Things.

This is how utopia is furthered– by assaulting someone with noxious liquids.

~ REPORTER LAUREN SOUTHERN recently had a liquid– possibly urine– poured on her head while chatting with some protesty-types. Yes, it’s assault, but she was really begging for it, because she did not surrender to their outrage or propaganda or questions. And because patriarchy.

Also via here. And don’t miss: Lauren Southern speaks with Paul Joseph Watson about online censorship and being attacked with a bottle of urine.

I mean, what deeply delightful people (a fascistic anti-fascist group called VANATIFA, who are also big into banning & no-platforming). Must invite them over for a wee cuppa pee. I meant, tea. They write, about their fearless and life-riskingly bold act of fighting for freedom banning and empeement and stuff:

About 5 or 10 minutes later, another smaller crowd of wing-nut conspiracy theorists, and other right-wing weirdo’s including the men’s rights activist, our local Ann Coulter, Lauren Southern, with multiple expensive cameras show up across the street on Dunsmuir. Frothing at the mouth with the gravest concern for free speech, and no concern whatsoever for white-supremacy, or the possibility of fascist organizing taking place in the city, they begin their live streaming and internet reporting. At some point, a bottle of piss is dumped on Lauren.

Blathering Elf

Opinionated Binks commented on a Lauren Southern vid via Tube Of You, in response to someone saying “Feminism is not Pro woman, it is anti man.” Saith teh Binks:

Frankfurt School Feminism is to women (and all other humans) what clear-cutting and paving everything is to a forest.

When the Glorious political Revolution didn’t take over all of Europe in the 1920s & 30s, the leader revoltings realized they’d have to slowly Tear It All Down. All of it. [ http://www.angelusonline.org/index.php?section=articles&subsection=print_article&article_id=2514 ]

Church, state, education, national identity, freedom, politics as usual, the courts & laws, marriage & childbearing, all male-female relations, learning, books, media, entertainment, thought itself, getting along with your neighbour. All must be undercut, radicalized, subverted and torn down, until the naked and defenceless individual lies naked before the brutal dehumanized power of the state, like someone tied down in the desert under the burning sun. Then, utopia, or something.

Lauren Southern somehow mostly escaped The Machine, and the prog-SJW bots cannot compute, only hate and make loud noises. When she interrupted a slutwalk, the sluts tried to accuse her of undue interest in the young just-teen women who were there in their underwear. Thankfully, there was video of everything, and so the destroy-narrative did not go off.

Get To Da Choppah! Naow!

I, for one, agree with Miss. Southern, and the hilarious anti-SJW meme:

I personally self-identify as an attack-helicopter,” she said in the vid, not long before the empeement assault.  Guess that makes us both.. helisexuals? Don’t oppress us with your heliphobia! You must accept our vehicle privilege.


Back To Reality

Keep laughing, fact-checking, and standing firm against the tide of political and popular manure which now passes for ‘Progressivism’ and ‘Social Justice Warriorism’. These cry-bullies are deadly serious, and they have broken and subverted many things, institutions and people. But in the process of fighting, resisting, deflecting, and truth-telling, don’t become like them– a joyless, childish, self-indulgent, piss-lobbing and hate-spewing, and menacing rad-bot. We must take breaks in these battles to laugh at ourselves, laugh at them, and to laugh at our silly sad humanity, so easily mislead and misleading.


Cough Up, Naow!*

This is why I hope some of you will be moved to cough up the $8 monthly ($1.54 a week, or $80 a year) to support the new subscription version of Rebel Media (you can find all the deets here).

I know, I know– pennies are tight, jobs are at risk, Canada is being swamped with big government and dumb and debt and SJW ideas from our political class. All the more reason to support a freedom-loving truth-telling news group like Rebel Media. Social media like this is worth it, and the Gliberals in power won’t be supporting it any time soon.

Canada has nothing else like Rebel Media; we need nothing more urgently than exactly this  free and open news source to combat the mainscream sockpuppet media outlets, in our increasingly troubled and propagandized world. So whether via subbing, or passing on the word to others if you can’t provide financial support just now, every little bit helps, right? What are you waiting for?

Show the SJW piss-babies what you stand for! Helisexualism! Rebel Media, and press freedom! ~

Full disclosure: I’m one of the volunteer bloggers on The Rebel’s Megaphone blog site. This obviously means that Ezra owns my soul, and that I worship Lauren Southern, and want to have babies with Brian Lilley. Or something like that.

Liveblogging Update

Sunday Afternoon, 4pm local time

~ SOMETIME Blogger NScott & his Missus, Heavy Duty Judy, are here helping with sorting the dead books from the living, and the possibly resurrectable ones via the freezer. Meantime, the Binklings are sorting the garbage, collecting DVDs, picking out treasures.. before the basement gets put in storage & renovation. All is soggy.. many dead books.

True friends are worth more than gold, yea more than much fine gold.



~ SO THANKS to AlGore’s Global Warming (3  chilly feet of which surround the Bink’s Suburban Hideout), our semi-finished basement flooded last evening, to the tune of 7-8 chilly inches of ice water.. everwhere.

Teh Binks being a super semi-genius, I went outside & built a snow-dam to slow the water, whilst the Binklings rescued books, electronics, art & photos, and other oddments inside.

I then called the local fire department, who arrived with pumps, shovels, sandbags– they bunkered the basement doorwell, drained it, shovelled a path to draw water from the 2-foot slush-pool beside the house, then pumped the lawn & the basement down to small puddles. Mrs. Binks had to coordinate everything after the local FD arrived, because I’d done a geezer on the shovelling, and was in bed trying to breathe and not expire and stuff.

SomeBody was looking after us, however: Teh Binklings were supposed to be sleeping over at a friend’s house last night, but it was cancelled– had they not been downstairs, we’d have woken up to 3-4 feet of icewater, with total losses of the Binks blogging centre, all the books, all our storage, Christmas ornaments, everything downstairs.. shudder.

Soggy Tomes

Those of you familiar with domestic floodiness  know how fun even 7-8 inches of water can be amongst your belongings. 2 months of rebuild lie ahead, but the real losses are the books, especially the older out of print or family heirloom volumes: so far, 25-30 new and old losses, but another 8 boxes await soggy unpacking, and probably 1/2 head to the garbage.*

The insurance will cover some of the loss, but anyone interested in sending along replacement books via Amazon.com may contact me [ binks dot webelf at gmail dot com ]; and know my grateful thanks for and support & encouragement in this stressful time.

Your servant,


*I will be trying this LifeHacker trick, but have no idea if it works.

Got Locked Out Of My Own Blog Again Last Night

UPDATE TEH 2NTH: Thanks to all you generous pre-dead minion donors, we now have enough via PayPal & cheque for THREE years of self-hosted Binks; plus offers of webspace (thanks Ken, Mitch), donated nerd-help to set up the new digs, and all sorts of good suggestions on decent ISPs which won’t shut me down. Thanks from the bottom sub-cockles of my elfly heart, you guys & gals. In response, I’ll work to have shorter but more frequent postings, and ever more of the Binks-stuff you love. Stay tuned for developments!! Oh, and there’s even weirdly good news about the guy who’s been after me, MAD, Blazing, SDA, MitchieVille, Jay Currie.. more later today (this is a sleepless in Elfville posting)….

UPDATE: Button coming: PayPal addy = binkspaypal@gmail.com… plus a volunteer has offered to help me migrate the thing to the new server & set things up.

~ SO TEH SHAIDLE has been nudging me towards getting a self-hosted WordPress blog, just so the pinheaded mini-fascist “support staff” prompted by online censors can’t lock me outta here again.

Any of you IT weenies wanna help migrate this thing?

Any of you blog-readers wanna cough up towards my monthly hosting fees? It will cost a measly $300 for two years.

Lemme know.

Dear Anthony:

Thanks for releasing my blog.

I will review my comments in a timely manner in the next 24 hours– and remove all regarding A*** R*** (my presumed repeat-complainant/ stalker) except for the e-mail sent directly to me by A*** R*** in which he included his own e-mail address, since he directly published that himself (which implies permission to publish by any fair interpretation of the facts).

You folks really need to stop playing the unfair mother in his “Mommeee! He breathed on me!” game, which has caused me days of wasted time & irritation. Can’t you flag his name as a serial frivolous complainant or something?

Seriously– I’m being reasonable here, and have complied with every request you’ve made thusfar under your TOS.

No Apologies

~ TEH BINKS IS a narrow-minded humourless conservative Christian white male elf, pro-life, anti-Jihad, non-libertarian, willing to see both sides of an argument until the argument is reasonably settled. He generally opposes weasel-words, blind leftardism, elitist bullying, injustice, ranting, and feckless cowardice. He favours piquant and saucy ways of putting things, sometimes mocking his targets (and himself), but only when deserved, in his view. Continue reading “Steynian 427nd”

Let’s Remember That..

.. whilst the ‘Free Speech Wars’ are in a lull, serial SLAPP lawsuiter Richard Warman (currently running 60 such lawsuits according to one source) is still after Blazing Catfur, Ezra Levant, and others, in defence of his– ahem— ever more unmistakeable reputation.

Blazing has issued a new request for any of you with mercy & shekels to throw some his way, as he’s out of pocket $10, 000.00 thusfar standing up to this serial SLAPPer.

Teh Binks would also ask you to support Ezra as well, who has 5 ongoing concurrent lawsuits to fight with finite resources, time, and energy, against Warman, Kinsella, Vigna, etc..

These two individuals have done yeoman-service in the free speech wars, the anti-Jihad push-back, and standing up for Canada and Canadians– at no little cost to themselves. We owe them our thanks, prayers, and financial help.

~ ITEM: Canada : l’opération “Samosa” et la filière pakistanaise; plus “Canada : Tarek Fatah appelle les intellectuels à dénoncer l’idéologie islamiste

~ ARE THE LATEST terror-arrests in Canada a wake-up call? Depends on if you believe in the religion of “Everybody Is Equal” or not. Cuddly Relativism is the intellectual blindness affecting many in the media & academia & chattering classes– and after the facts and upset, the self-censoring and thought correction will kick in.

We’re in real danger of becoming like post-1933 German citizens watching their Jewish and Socialist and dissident neighbours disappear, and we adjust our reality just that little bit each time. So freedom is stolen incrementally, and the creeping cowardice paralyses freedom, thinking, and action.

Yawn.. So Sleepy!

Canadian people indeed need to wake up. We are at war– the enemy is here. They are persistent, dangerous, and intend domination. The critical limit is being passed– once militant Muslims feel they are free to attack Canadian targets, things get worse, and not better.

Further, even the soft-Jihadis are energized by terror-threats (successful or not) to be more politically and culturally aggressive, and the general populace (and particular uppity politicians and counter-jihadists) are ever more afraid of Muslim assertiveness and the threat of violence or societal disturbance.

Do we choose to live, fight back, stand tall? Or do we surrender via a thousand little white-flag moments?

What to do?

(1) Learn up ASAP on the terms & mentality of the Jihad we all face. We’re very lucky to have a number of talented word-warriors around for such a time as this. Books like Brother Tariq, or Robert Spencer’s Stealth Jihad, or his Religion of Peace?: Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t, and any of the books I feature on this blog or over at Canucki Jihad. This is first a war of facts & uncovering truth.

(2) No more naiveté. Stealth Jihad is here. Bringing Canada under submission to Islam is the goal. Watch and learn what militant Muslims are up to in Canada, whether by bombs or lawsuits. This is a war of awareness.

(3) Fight for immigration reform & restrictions, and deportation for immigrants & the children of immigrants who engage in or support Jihad, subversion, terrorists or terror-groups like Hamas, Hizbullah, the Taliban and all the rest.

(4) All radical mosques and imported radical imams need to be under surveillance, as well as conferences and gatherings, with full audits and financial consequences for criminal activity. Again, deportation and the full pressure of the existing laws need to be brought to criminals.

(5) We need to work with truly moderate Muslims to weaken the silence and oppression which radicals use to pressure their own communities.

(6) While the legal principle of innocent until proven guilty is essential in law, when it comes to  prudently dealing with militant Islam and the alphabet-soup of cover-groups like CAIR, ISNA, the MSA, they have a proven track record of supporting terror, encouraging radicalism, and demonstatre that the soft & hard sides of Islamic supremacism are two sides of the same coin. Jihadi until proven otherwise.. but still under suspicion.

(7) The cowardly idiots at the Laval PD, by refusing to investigate Muslim machete-threats against two university students merely send the message that Canadian law-enforcement and public opinion can be cowed. The brutal inhuman ideology of jihad sees that as weakness and opportunity.

(8) Ignore the self-pity, victimhood, and loud noises of the militants and their aiders and abettors. It’s distraction-seeking behaviour. “Help, help, we’re being oppressed” is a cover for being held accountable.

(9) Pray.

We’ve been very lucky and well-protected so far. Sooner or later, our luck will run out. ~

Multiamorous Adventurism

~ ITEM: Green Party Seeks To Enlarge Marital Carbon Footprint – To Vote On Polygamy Decriminalization

~ YOU CAN HEAR THE DEAFENING RUMBLE– of outraged same-sexists rallying to defend same-sex marriage, which they promised– promised!– would never never never ever open the door to the merest possibility of people using their innovation to propose even more innovations– such as polymorphical polygamy, for instance. Remember the outrage of then-MP Svend Robinson when people warned that polygamy was a possible consequence of mutating the age-old institution of man-woman marriage– just this once, pinky-swear!– for the same-sexers?

The United Church and Anglicans will cheerfully– after due debate & vote and sharing-sessions and institutional repression and suing of dissidents– conduct weddings of any random number of men and women.

Mumbles All ‘Round

What’s that? Deadly silence? Shrugs? Looking the other way and pretending such matters have nothing to do with them? The old Spanish proverb has it “‘Take what you want’, said God, ‘but you’ll have to pay for it.'”

That is, the unravelling of society and the collapse of the Christian ethic of marriage will sow dragon’s teeth in society. All of us have had a part in it– first the divorcers, then the un-marriers and serial monogamists. The same-sexers were once the bleeding edge of collapse, but next it’s the polygamists and child-sexers and eco-friendly dolphin-lovers, and the incesters.

Seriously– why not? Why shall not all be allowed to legally find their joy as they see fit? No? Why not, then? Shall mere commandment, tradition, custom, taboo, current legalities, the status quo– or anything else– deflect or deny our absolute will to jollies as we define them? Says who? So what if they do? Obviously phobic enemies of change.

Total Utter Fraud

And what tiny percentage of the 1-2% of the population that self-identify as “homosexual” have rushed off to the altars they so sought to possess via marriage? Under 1%. That’s right. Canada= 33 millions. That’s about 660 000 people at the very most who self-identify as “gay”. Of those, under 10 000 have gotten “married”.. perhaps as few as 6600 people, or +/- 3300 couples. Getting the picture? It wasn’t even a sales-job– it was a full-scale scam pulled on the rest of us.

Then they enforce the latest rules on the rest of us. Totaliqueerianism?

We have loosed the wind, and shall reap the whirlwind and worse. ~

It’s The Sun, Stupid

~ ITEM: Pundita– Solar Cycle 24

Space Weather – Solar Storms in HD

Space Weather Gadget Version 1.0

~ I WAS WATCHING (online) the BBC ‘Wonders Of The Solar System‘ series, and learning more about the Sun. It’s big. And remarkably hot. And puts out a lot of energy.

Interestingly, the Sun has seasons and hot & cold times; and the earth responds to this in endless ways. One scientist showed that the active & quiet phases of solar weather corresponded directly with changes in the Amazon river depth & activity.

We So Smarter

Those prone to mocking past ages for not being as amazingly smart as we are will make endless sport of the ‘fact’ that ‘everybody in the pre-modern world thought the earth was the centre of the solar system’ because they anthropocentrically thought human beings were all that. Well, lots of people didn’t; some did, and whatever. Their astronomy began because they loed God and his creation: God was the great fact and source of all. They didn’t miss that fact.

Thumbing your noses at the past is a very snobbish & teenagerish activity.

Fast forward to our supremely brilliant times, and the bizarre and politicized debate over man-made global warming. That is, humans are so powerful and dangerous that we’re the direct cause of all the changes in the atmosphere. God? Whatever. It’s all about us.

Al Suzuki

Really? The Sun is the biggest effing thing in our celestial neighbourhood– even bigger than Al Gore & David Suzuki’s egotism combined– and it is the biggest fact of our life, existence, and earthly weather… down to the bottom of the ocean, even.

The Big Idea

Solar weather = global weather. Repeat. Ponder.

More solar heat = more carbon dioxide released into the environment from the sea & land. Less heat? = Less CO2. Much of human history can be deciphered via solar history, and the resulting changes in climate, oceans, rainfall, monsoons, and all the rest.

Ask the tribes of the lush Sahara.. or the ancient Harappans. No? They moved on, as the sun changed & climate changed.

It’s more anthropocentrism redux to go green-cult apocalyptic and put human actions at the centre of the solar system again. Yes we need to continue to fight pollution, and make all efforts to get chemicals and toxins out of the natural environment, but anthropogenic global warming is a theory with a lot of unanswered questions, not a scientific certainty on which to found social, scientific and environmental policy upon.

Why– that?.. that would be really stupid! ~

Society As A ‘Technical’ Problem

Crunch. Smash. Shove. Wreckify.

~ ITEM: WikiPedia– Hubris

~ ITEM: “The purpose of gay marriage is to demand the same status as a family and, perversely, to punish families that fail to pretend that narcissistic gay couplings are the same thing as a family

~ ITEM: VERBOTEN CURE– “A rare hormonal condition can sometimes cause the improper development of female genitalia. It’s treatable, but there’s a catch. It *could* prevent the occurrence of homosexuality. So, natch, the advocates of the religion of homosexuality want to prevent the treatment.”

~ ITEM: Take that, GLADD. Bullying is the reason people don’t like you

~ LAST TIME AROUND I wrote of how Canadian philosopher George Grant warned us of techne as our abiding idea– of man as unlimited maker via technology. Maker-man always thinks in terms of ‘can I do this’, not ‘should I do this’– and without grasping the consequences.

Modern social radicals have the same technical approach to remaking society and other people. Feminists? Same-sexists? Multicultists? Just fix the ‘problem’ you don’t like by hook or crook– engineer your solution by law, popular opinion, by shutting down the opposition.

This is, of course, a profoundly inhuman and dehumanizing approach. It treats humans, civilization, institutions and good and evil as a ‘problem to be solved’, with some people having power to control and remake others and their behaviour. Labtech & rats.

So the advocates of social revolution imagine they can ‘make a new world’ by will & technique: clear-cutting and paving and mutating all obstacles and opposition. California’s controversial Proposition 8 is thus merely (and only) a matter of how to get what you want, not right or wrong, or whether it should be done, or consequences intended or otherwise.

Making Stuff Up

The idea that this is just ‘gay culture’ extending back to the Greeks is utter nonsense & historical ignorance. Some of the Greeks may have had societally tolerated male & male sexual relationships– but this was not marriage, nor officially approved in society.

The ancient Greeks considered impiety and hubris great sins. That is, disrespecting the gods by casting aside treasured human tradition and customs; and overweening pride, arrogance and insolence, resulting violence against others, and the downfall of the hubristic.

Arrogant modern radicals are destroyers, bullies, and great sowers of dragon’s-teeth & destruction in society. If they succeed, we end up with a universal tyrant-state– if not, more societal collapse and divisions.. with rising persecution of socons and the classically religious.

We have created our own barbarians, and some of them are ‘fabulous’. ~

Friends I’ve Yet To Meet

~ ITEM: Interesting interview with Tolkien

~ C.S. LEWIS once spoke of how reading the wonderful faerie-novels of George MacDonald ‘baptized’ his imagination. It was an enlightening, a preparation for the Gospel, an unsuspected inward awakening which opened his mind & heart to higher things, through seemingly ordinary literary means.

Tolkien’s Middle Earth novels were them same for my bookish young soul. Old JRRT was a thus a soul-friend I never met in the flesh– I hope to thank him and Christ himself for him one day on that bright and farther shore.

His heroic characters are each one aspects of humanity, faith, courage, and suffering. They are friends I have walked with in imagination, and each time, the stories are fresher and better than before.

How so? Faith and imagination are not contraries, but the very fire and furnace of a living heart and mind. The impoverishing of bookless souls raised on square glowing screens is a real loss and tragedy for the individual and for humanity.

Go To Hell!


So I’m re-reading Dante (in the timeless Sayers translation, which captures the joy in verse of the original), and finding in my Florentine friend a real gift in his firm self-examination of soul, his humour, his humility learned through suffering. Plus, that 700-year dead author taught me how to love and understand poetry.

It’s never to late to pick up & read the great classics of Western Litt– which after all, truly live in the hearts and minds of ordinary folk, and not bottled up like mummified objects of academic interest & squabbling only. ~

HomoWars: The Coulter Thing

~ ITEM: World Net Daily Partially “Dumps” Ann Coulter Over “HomoConflict”

~ BECAUSE WHY, EXACTLY? It’s beyond ironical that the radical Leftards under Allan rock at the UofO in Canada and the hard right WND media outlet agree that Ann Coulter is just too much. Looks like both of her opponents misunderstand the whole messy ‘freedom of speech’ thing– but shame on WND for slighting one of their own, one of the good-gals.

A real risk of the ideological wars is to become like your enemy– to become bitterly politically correct in a reverse direction, and to impose us/them categories. That way lies crazy, faction, and an ever-smaller ‘us’.

True conservativism is a better account of reality partly because it encompasses a wider and more encompassing view of the universe, opinion, and the freedom of speech, opinion, and the like.

WND should apologize and hire Coulter back on ASAP. ~

Raped Afghan boys.. will be girls

Kathy Shaidle Is Evil..

.. but in a good-for-Canada and good-for-free-speech kinda way.

That’s why after sending a few coffees to our troops via Kaffir Kanuck, you will go overt to Teh Shaidle’s page and read:

When you help Ezra Levant, you help me and other bloggers fight government censorship

.. and then donate to her legal defence fund, to help beat down Richard Warman and his malicious lawfare, and continue to uphold free speech in this good land of Canada against the petty bureaucrats, bottom-feeders, and people like Warman and Lynch and Ontarian human rights Ubergauleiter Barb Hall and all the rest.

Because you get it, and because I asked nicely– and because it’s the right thing to do.

Teh Binks

The Steyn & The Shaidle, Oh My!
