Sailer: ‘The secret history of the 1990s’

He writes:

…the most true and interesting things anybody can say about the Rodney King riot are

A) that it was a shameful tantrum by African-Americans (which of course few aesthetic writers dependent upon grants would dare say), and

B) that blacks actually were embarrassed enough by it to slowly start behaving better.

Normally, Sailer is acutely observant and piercingly accurate, but, regarding “B”, all I can say is:

Katrina, anyone?

We’re up to 90 comments — mostly delusional LedZep fans making incomprehensible noises, as per usual

A bustle in a hedgerow? Really?

“The song remains the same” is right, guys. And that’s nothing to brag about!

Led Zeppelin is for dirty, stoned, semi-literate headbangers.

Just admit it:

The Who is better than that stupid band you like.

We will BURY you!!!

PS: I love the sentiment defenders express at all the “Led Zeppelin sucks” sites, above:

“But Led Zeppelin was doing stuff NO OTHER BAND was doing at the time!!”

Uh, yeah. Maybe because…

It sucked!!!

Bwa ha.

‘The notion that Hitler was a Christian, for example, is schoolboy stuff…’

Writes Michael Coren:

…and profoundly insulting to the Christians who opposed the man and who he in turn slaughtered.

Of course there were people calling themselves Christian who were Nazis, but this says nothing at all about Christianity and a great deal about hypocrisy.

National Socialism was a strict, pagan ideology, replacing Messiah with Fuehrer, church with party, love with hate, soul with will, protection of the weakest with survival of the fittest.

Mitt Romeny’s father wasn’t a polygamist — but Obama’s father was

Why Mark Steyn makes the big bucks:

Just for the record, Romney’s father was not a polygamist; Romney’s grandfather was not a polygamist; his great-grandfather was a polygamist. Miles Park Romney died in 1904, so one can see why this would weigh heavy on 86 percent of female voters 108 years later.

Meanwhile, back in the female-friendly party, Obama’s father was a polygamist; his grandfather was a polygamist; and his great-grandfather was a polygamist who had one more wife (five in total) than Romney’s great-grandfather. It seems President Obama is the first male in his line not to be a polygamist. So, given the “gender gap,” maybe those 86 percent of American women are way cooler with polygamy than Gov. Schweitzer thinks. Maybe these liberal chicks really dig it.

The exploding cigars are revealing not merely of Democrat hypocrisy but of a key difference in worldview between liberals and conservatives. Jeremy Funk and Gov. Schweitzer reflexively believe that their dog-eating polygamy-scion is different from the other guy’s dog-transporting polygamy-scion. This is nothing to do with young Barack being 6 or 10 years old and meekly eating whatever was put in front of him. He was 34 years old when he wrote the passage quoted above and 10 years older when he recorded the audio edition.

And, as both versions make plain, he thinks it’s kinda cool, and he knows that to the average upscale white liberal it has the electric frisson of the exotic other.

‘The ADL must be stopped’

Abe “Hey, I know: Let’s condemn… Rush Limbaugh!” Foxman and some other “Official Jews” just keep bringing the stupid.

Israpundit:

During this sermon, the imam solicited his congregation for donations to Hamas-affiliated charities in the Gaza Strip, and he praised dead Gaza fighters as martyrs.

In other sermons posted on his open site, Elturk defames American democracy, American society, and moderate Muslims — and he describes in exquisite detail the ways in which Westernized Muslim women will suffer in Hell for their libertine ways.

When some members of the Detroit Jewish community spoke out online against the synagogue’s embrace of Imam Elturk, 38 Detroit rabbis — following Foxman’s logic, it would seem — co-signed a letter (a Jewish fatwa?) condemning the anonymous dissenters for being “uncivil.”

The president of the local Jewish Community Relations Council came out in favor of silencing the “online demagogues” and, channeling Stalin or Mao, promised to “set appropriate standards for conversation.”

Our cute little Protestant friends will be the death of me

Sigh:

“So what are you saying? Indiana Jones is God? We always had a cake shaped like a cross at Sunday School picnics. Lightning never struck. Sheesh.”

My reply:

kakola, I guess since you said “Sunday school picnics” that makes you Protestant, and therefore… _confused_ about the importance of mystical symbolism, basic theology and so forth.

(It’s also funny that you would happily eat a cross shaped cake — ugh — but consider transubstantiation absurd, but I digress…)

The (now lost to the mists of time) Ark of the Covenant is the holy of holies which contained the original tablets of the Ten Commandments. None dared even look upon it.

One of the honorifics of the Virgin Mary is “Ark of the Covenant” because she “contained” the Word of God, i.e. Jesus.

In other words, the Ark of the Covenant was THE most sacred, literally touched-by-God object in history.

This is the equivalent of making a cake of the Dome of the Rock, or a _crucifix_ cake (as opposed to a plain cross) or a baby Jesus cake or (to bring it down to a simple human level) one in the exact image of your beloved late [insert relative/pet here]

What a shame that even “conservatives” are so secularized, shallow and historically illiterate that they need this explained to them, and don’t _immediately_ and instinctively recoil from such a sight, and instead see everything (as that couple did) in terms of a… Hollywood movie.

And Enkidu?

I know you’re trying to be glib and clever but:

We don’t “have to ask” God what He would think about this. It’s called the Book of Exodus in the Old Testament. 1 Samuel may be instructive also.

Hint: He wouldn’t be thrilled…

End times alert: HBO to broadcast positive doc about George Bush Sr.

The hells?

The 41st U.S. president (pictured) is to be the subject of the upcoming Jeffrey Roth documentary, 41, airing on HBO in the States on June 14.

The doc was filmed over a 17-month period, and was written and directed by Roth, and executive produced by Jerry Weintraub, who was himself the subject of a recent HBO documentary, His Way.

“I am so proud to be a friend of George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Bush,” said Weintraub. “And so proud that our friendship includes this wonderful film about two wonderful people.”

Remember when you were a kid and you and your friends would joke about ‘which cartoon characters were actually gay’?

Well, as most of you have noticed at this point:

Stuff you used to joke about as a kid = now a “serious” thing

And never forget (or else):

Everyone is secretly gay — except Hitler and other bad people!

UPDATE from Ed Driscoll, who has an even better “remember when”:

Hey, remember when that guy in the fifties said comic books warped kids’s minds and everybody cool made fun of him (and said he was an “arch-conservative” even though he was a raving commie) oh wait…

I love to say ‘I told you so’: Autism now ‘just another identity’ and not a ‘disorder’

Spiked:

To illustrate why I think this, I refer you to my earlier statement that I have a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome. Now I know, and you know, and you know that I know, that by making such a statement on this subject I do the following three things. I buy myself a bit more latitude to be forthright on the subject. I deflate some of the strategies that could conceivably be used to argue against me. And I help the organisers of this conference deflect any accusation that the speaker line-up is not representative of relevant interests.

What I am describing here is far from being a politically healthy situation.

It’s a situation where if you establish your identity credentials with a declarative personal statement, you earn tolerance and goodwill from the people you’re talking to. And if you fail to establish such credentials, you’re more likely to be met with intolerance and bad will and find yourself accused of the great heresy of our times, namely speaking from a position of privilege. In other words, the merits of your identity take logical priority over the merits of your ideas.
