Did You Forget Something?

“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” [ Proverbs 15:1-3 ]

~ CURRENT EVENTS are testing a lot of us, and many are falling into temptation and sin because we are not close enough to God. THe war is especially visible online.

Harsh words, harsher attitudes, insults, disrespect, hate, contempt, social media flame wars, defriendings.. and please don’t tell me it’s all of the Lord, and that Satan isn’t rejoicing to see brothers and sisters in Christ at each other’s throats like rabid dogs. Gack.

To be tested or tempted is not in itself sinful.. only to give in, to wallow in it, to take the easiest way, and thus to have ourselves revealed in that moment to be unstable mud, and not polished steel. It’s humbling, and calls for repenting and beseeching grace, not more of the same.

We must forgive those who trespass against us, if we would be forgiven; we must ask God not to allow us to fall into the time of testing, because we too easily fail. These two petitions of the Lord’s Prayer are all the more important in perilous and troublesome times.

So warneth the Binks to himself, and to others.

Some catechetical goodness on the matter to ponder and pray about, from equally difficult and divided times, the mid-to-late 1500s:

~ ONE OF THE great joys whilst wandering the fever-swamps of YouTubia, is occasionally finding islands of sanity, patient explanations, which visiting said islands makes you smarter and better informed for having done so.

Now What, Binks?

Amongst the various offerings from YouTube Channel Studio Brulé, we have the interesting and wisely professorial offerings of Professor Janice Fiamengo of the University Of Ottawa. How she ever survived modern academia, I’ll never know.

That is, she’s not a cringing conservative, a rabid bullying Marxist of whatever stripe, or a dead-souled survivor of one-too-many meetings of Time Waster’s International™, University Division. Imagine!

In fact, Professor Fiamengo appears to be an actual professing old-style liberal. Old School Liberal– Believes 1st year kids have skulls full of mush, which must be shaped and formed. Believes in facts, truth, hard work, and the free exercise of the mind and will on learning & mastering a topic. Education, knowledge, wisdom, and degrees are hard-won over years, not handed out like prizes for everyone– and only in real areas of knowledge.

Worthwhile Professing Persons

Someone like Professor Fiamengo represents (like other kick-butt Canucki profs such as Doug Farrow & Dr. Margo Somerville, amongst others) some of the best kind of Canadian scholarship: detailed, insightful, impartial, quietly passionate, and worth hearing and pondering. They are– to the best of my knowledge– unbought, unradical, uncorrected, and serve as educated minds and consciences speaking back from our Western Tradition to the various concerns and controversies of the day.

You know, out loud. In public and stuff. Common sense, even.

Unlike radicalized profs, or the ‘false consensus’ global weather academics, with the best professors & teachers, you don’t feel like you’re listening to the same old script, or hearing only one side of an issue (usually Leftwards), or that a whole dimensions of learning are being deliberately silenced or misrepresented for political or ideological excuses.  You know, college as usual: Brainwashing, only $20K+ a year, thank-you Cha-Chinnng!

SJW “Programs” Are Like Countless Infected Boils

~ ITEM– AMERICAN DIGEST– #TrigglyPuff: This is What a Social Justice Warrior Looks Like; and don’t forget: What #TrigglyPuff Means : The Other McCain

+ + +

DISCOUNT COMMUNISM– otherwise known as ‘social justice’– is a raging infection in the Western body academic and body politic. It’s been around since the 1930s, but has broken out afresh on the campuses of 2016, after the previous fevers of the 80s and 90s.

Let’s be clear: “social justice” is sneaky communist talk for a communist revolution in thought , society, and politics. Period.

Social justice is not about ‘seeking justice in society’, but about utopian violence, barbarism, fanaticism, irrationality, cult-like behaviours, and “being outraged” on behalf of victims of real or imagined injustice. In short, “Western society is imperfect, therefore it must be wrecked and replaced (and no, we’re not kidding), and don’t remind us of the 20th century record of Communism, thanks very much!

quote-i-am-certain-that-nothing-has-done-so-much-to-destroy-the-juridical-safeguards-of-individual-friedrich-hayek-235626

The shelving of post-secondary education as academic learning and mastering various topics? Bah! Instead, we must be cheerleader advocates and activists of said topic! Disasterous for students, the universities, the job market, for having a well-educated populace, for racial and political peace– well, pretty much for everything. Don’t just study the history of Nazism, become a Nazi.. er.. Communist revolutionary!

Enprovening It

Sargon of Akkad’s recent video on “What Is A Social Justice Course?” goes into the sort of thing happening in many North American and some European universities. Sargon even has a cheeky Change.Org petition up, “Petitioning UNIVERSITIES: Suspend Social Justice Courses“. I’ve also had several recent blog-posts up about the current state of whackademia.

20151210_krieger

SO– screams of censorship, raisinism, sectism, homophonia, no-platforming, fake hate-crimes, social media lynching gangs.. rage.. threaten.. throw.. mob.. bite.. scream. Yeah, SJWs, you’ve made your kind of politics plenty clear in recent psycho-rages against non-SJW talkers on various campuses. You’ve not actually proven any points, but you’ve demonstrated the kind and quality of people you are: middle & upper middle-class fascists.

We Built This

If the alternative online media had just reported dry facts, lotsa shrugs and “Who says?” would have resulted– but actual video of the people, the tactics, the brain-insane results of SJW-style courses and activist professors? Priceless!

Take this admirable young scholar of the class of 2018ish, for example, from a recent talk at an American university. Mz. Cora Segal is the future.


#Trigglypuff

So: SJWs and radicalized profs are wreckifying colleges, wasting tax-dollars on miseducation, threatening free speech, and turning education into revolutionary programs advocating political and societal ideology and radicalism? Right, then. Regarding all social-justice oriented/ womens or gender studies/ etc. and similar fraudulent & ideological university “programs” and the professors & ‘educators’ of the same?

“GNOTHI SEAUTON!” (Greek: γνῶθι σεαυτόν), said the ancient Greeks (we’re not sure which one, exactly)– Know Thyself! To this general idea, Socrates added: “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

That is, true wisdom (true authenticity with self, and others, and ultimately, God & reality), requires time, maturity, and effort– and a mirror. Some introspection. Some self-knowledge of strengths and weaknesses, fixable and unfixable, light & shadows, good and evil– OF YOURSELF. FIRST. With humility, and good humour.

Believe it or not, things like that Greek saying used to be taught on undiversity campuses. The Western way of knowing, of deliberation, moral action, of self-criticism and criticism of a society, of beauty, truth, goodness and right behaviour. Not so much in some sectors of the 21st Century modern college, though.

OK, so 2016– whither ‘Know Thyself’? The examined life? AWOL. Tantrums? Awesome!!

For many current and recent miseducatees, their radicalized professors fill them up with gross lies and half-truths and disproven faerie-tales and propaganda, get them all wound up and passionate, and release them like flying monkeys to accuse, judge, attack, grief, and mock– and even physically assaultThe Evil Other. Look outwards! Look over there! No mirrors needed! Smite!

For unreflective SJWism, all that is imperfect & evil is externalized: know thyself know the enemy! Blame & shame! Attack the ignorants! Down with the evil & wrong-thinks! Juden Raus!  Credere, obbedire, combattere! Smash the four olds! (破四旧). No think, just hate.

Waaaaaaaaaaaah!

Put down the bong, the feminist sociology textbook, and your smart-clickety– and grab a mirror, dear rads. Got mirror yet?

Dear SJWs, Campus radicals, progressives– you are the violent and dangerous ones. You are the assaulters, the silencers, the haters, the threateners, the fraud-artists, the no-platformers, the fanatics, the screamers, the interruptors.  The bullies who ignore the right of all to have a say.

Your ignorance-fueled moral fervor does not make you actual  heroes– it’s turning you into 1930s-style Leftist/ Socialist thugs. The fact that you may have nose-rings and tie-dye clothes and purple hair is utterly superficial– you are the Black, Brown, Green shirted barbarians you are claiming to warn everybody else about. You.

A Word To Students

Your radical profs are using, abusing, misusing, and cheating you. ‘Friendly’ and ‘cool’? Whatevs. You are expendable tools in their master-plan utopian games.

Truth– They are only teaching you 1/10th of 1% of the intellectual, philosophical, artistic, literary, and other facets of knowledge which are rightly your inheritance. What dribs and drabs of truth they ration out?  All bent and twisted through circus-clown mirrors of radical distortion.

Moreover, these con-artists and their costly scam is stealing the formative years of your life, rewarding you with fools gold for your effort and money, and not preparing you for life, heaven & hell, work, adulthood & parenthood & citizenship.. nada.

How about… fact & truth based learning? The books your profs forbid?  Reading? Thinking & debate? Religion & faith? Uniting the passion of youth with the wisdom of the West? Unstoppable! World-changing!!

A Word To The Grown-Ups

dv1850045

Choose very carefully.. or you get a graduated job-free lunatic.

Parents, before you send your kid to college, find out what college will give you in return on your investment of life in the kid, and your investment of time and money for a college. You want a smart, educated, work-ready, well-read life-long learner and adult, not a lazy stoned propaganda-spewing basement commie being bitter on social media for the next 10 years.

Parents and prospective students– Does your proposed place of study have an active Women’s Centre? Safe spaces? Gender Studies Program? Black Lives Matters? Lots of radical campus groups? RED ALERT! No world-class or national-class scholars (or scholar-authors), or well-spoken of programs in real studies areas? RED ALERT! Learn the warning signs of SJW-brain-cancer growth places, and avoid them, as you would steer clear of live cancer soup, or a Nazi-decorated university setting.

BkPlJ9X

Colleges? Take the hint from the Mizzou fallout. No more pandering.

Shut the radical ‘departments’ down, realize that pandering to the Radical Leftards will crush your school as word gets out, and parents wake up. Do what the awesome OSU leadership did— they told cry-bullies “No, you can’t trespass and harass our staff. Get out or get arrested and get completely off campus.” A tiny start.

Word To A Scottish Blogger

Sargon of Akkad:
The Regressive Left has Become the Religious Right

Dear ‘Loki’ Scottish Blogger–

This is a brilliant, courageous, truth-speaking essay, and while you will get flak from your own side as a possible heretic, keep speaking, thinking, and looking at reality as you are trying to do.

I don’t fit in many of the modern categories– I’m a vaguely libertarian-ish old-liberal-ish semi-Catholic-ish middle-aged male Christian. Where do we believers fit, except in the categories of ‘old absolutist’, bigot, superstitious, and wrongly maligned as if all Christians are anti-intellectual, creationist, and laughable, and exactly the same? Everywhere, and nowhere– equally oppressed?

Picking A Team

Therefore, looking around the current political battlefields, I find many of the new Atheists interesting, because rigorous, if biased; I find the power-mongering systems-theory irrationalist SJWs cultic and absolutist and moralizers and comment-blockers; and the secular economic capitalist too cruel and immoral; the MGTOW/ PUA/ MRA men’s movement partial and obsessed, if worthy of sympathy; the 3rd wave feminists unreflectively and nastily Marxist, without understanding their own progressivism. Sigh.

Back in the 1980s when I was in university, the politically correct were trying, but failing in their first effort to conquer academia, silence criticism, and make colleges into tribal hooting places, instead of a level playing field for learning, thinking, gaining some grasp on various topics via effort and research, without profs being nasty cheerleaders for this or that propagandistic cartoon of a topic. Yes, there was such a time, even after the irrational rumblings of the 1960s.

_79160148_universitystudents1994

The 80s? You talk to all sorts of people to learn what & how they think; you disagree, or even disapprove in some cases, but still have coffee and friendly chit-chat after; you actually try to think both sides of an issue– then you know more than a one-side-only obsessive. You imperfectly use the evidence and reasons and tools you have, without judging someone who differs from you as stupid, or immoral, not entirely human or deserving of respect… or in need of re-education camp.

Enter The Now

Safe-spaces? Tantrums? No-platforming? Really? Monsterizing anybody who disagrees in any speck or word of the current moment of identity politics? Nope. Erasing from our common humanity whole categories of our fellow men and women via class, race, gender, cheap discount Marxism, and right-grabbers, minoritarian cry-bullies and petty tyrants? No way.

Anyhow, sorry for the pontification. Great article. I got here via Sargon of Akkad.

+ + +

THE IDIOTIC idea that all must believe all reports of racist, sexist, homophobic, or other alleged attacks is a popular idiotic idea: all must “Listen And Believe!

Why? Because like empty social media ‘celebrity’, potentially valuable victimhood can win you all the goodies, sympathy, attention, weepy protesters, and minions listening to you and believing you. Except, there’s a lot of attention-seeking liars out there, constantly crying wolf, and inventing hate-crimes for the media and permanently aggrieved to feeding-frenzy all over.

Some Basics….

opinions-and-facts

(1) Prove it. Evidence. Law. Witnesses. Investigation. The Feminist dirty-word ‘Facts’. Believe nothing legal until it is legally certain, however likely the guilt may be, or how unlikeable the alleged perp happens to be. Because digital lynch mobs can still ruin innocent lives, reputations, and put men in jail for years and years.

(2) Supposed perps? The law says: “Innocent until proven guilty”, not guilty until proven guilty, because someone belongs to some “guilty” group (men, males, heterosexuals, Christians, white men and women, non-poor people, conservatives, anyone who dares disagree with Victim Glorifying, and SJWism).

(3) That SJWs can’t and won’t police their own folks from alleging all sorts of death-threats, bomb-threats, and over-inflating online criticism into unbearable ‘hatred and harassment’ ( COUGHZoe, AnitaCOUGH )? Fact-lite, and useful fear-mongering heavy.

The cry of the Great Speckled Victim? “Help. Help. I’m being oppressed. Save me by dropping much moneys into my Patreon or Kickstarter, before They Get Me.” Cha-Chings.

Och Aye, The Noo

grumpyscotsman

YouTuber 6oodfella has a great (if Scots & salty) video up on the whole matter, plus a heap of intertube links to false reports over the past few years. He tells it like it is, IMHO.

The irony? Crying wolf doesn’t mean there aren’t wolves, and that some people aren’t attacked for various reasons– it does mean that innocent victims might not be believed, and wolves may well get away with attacks. That would be precisely because of all the phony, self-seeking, and ‘consciousness-raising’ fakery, useful lies, and propagandistic noise from SJWs, feminists, militant homosexuals, disturbed individuals, and members of other privileged ‘victim’ groups.

#IBELIEVE? Well, that would be because you dislike or don’t understand either the principles of justice, or the purpose of law-courts, then. Shame on you for wanting possibly unprincipled, unjust, and wrong-headed vigilantism enforced by the state. ~

Ancient Greeks.. apparently time-travelling thieves, culturally appropriating all the things, including a form of what we now call dreadlocks.

Except… not? The Indian Hindus may have been doing this for many many thousands of years, before modern Jamaica & Rastafarians ever were.

Elsewhere, dreadlocks are everywhere in paganism, ancient artistic examples, and in not a few cultures: the Neolithic, Egyptian, Greek, Aztec, Biblical Hebrew, ancient India, South Pacific Islanders, Ethiopian (hence the Ethiopian Emperor, Ras Tafari, a.k.a. Haile Selassie I, 1930-1974, after whom the Rastas named themselves), Dervish (Sufi) Islam, ancient Celts and their druids (Shakespeare’s ‘Elflocks’).

Modernly speaking, dreadlocks are popular with Rastafarianism (which “… draws its belief from three main sources; the Hebrew Old Testament, African tribal culture, and Hindu tribal culture“), a.k.a. Rasta dreads = flagrant “Cultural Appropriation!!, hippies, vegans, stoners, surfers, goths, cyber goths, and fans of the Grateful Dead.

Hey You, Racist Whitey Man-Scum!

This ragingly racist and soft-fascist black woman (SFSU student Bonnie “Bonita” Tindle) seems informed or interested in history, art, culture, cultural appreciation, freedom of expression, or anything else. The feminist-entitled she-bigot (and her smirking sidekick) definitely were interested in harassing, judging, and technically assaulting Dude– down two flights of stairs, then with repeated grabbing and blocking his attempted escapes– all because he was a white (evil) man (evil) wearing dreads (evil), and because of what she (in her utter ignorance) only associates with modern black people.

Because Whoopee Goldberg. And, you know, cuz Google is, like WAY hard, and hard facts are sexist and just feel wrong.

Also, because the ‘aspiring filmmaker’ thought she was self-righteously correct versus a guilty offender, and probably could get away with it. Why? Dunno– maybe she thought nobody else was around (or recording things), except her friend as witness to the events.

In any case of “He said, she said”.. always trust the poor widdle shes, right? And “Lissen And Bleev“, plus the inevitable and lying “WELL, HE TOUCHED MY CHEST!” self-defence tactic. It’s all getting sadly predictable, lame, and transparent, isn’t it?

Then, EVERY news outlet, all the lefty-rad talking head shows, SJW websites, Black Lives Matter blogs, regressive Left YouTube channels, feminist forae, and the mainscream mass media would go completely and utterly rabid and full megaphone over this: judge, jury, and executioners all.

One lame apologia article, tries to paint the victim (Dreads Dude) as the actual perpetrator, also mentions that the unfairly misunderstood Mz. Tindle may have grown up partly in foster-care. OK, that’s often unpleasant, but lots of other people have rotten kid-lives, and possible past suffering is still a crap excuse for mistreating other people, years later.

In fact, my difficult youth years mostly taught me to be kind, patient, and sympathetic, since you can never tell just what people are going through, plus, don’t bully or stomp people just for kicks. Leave things better than you found them.

She is currently, sadly, a Black Marxist/ Feminist puppet spouting all the the usual dehumanizing and ‘It wasn’t my fault, the patriarchy did it” kind of mental and ideological avoidance behaviour, hiding the fact of who she is, what she did, and the racist bullying attack she tried to get away with.
