The article by Professor Carniol asserts the Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s “ideology and attitudes” are out of step with Jewish values. Using the mangled, pompous and, dare I say, retarded reasoning one would expect from a Social Work professor, it basically boils down to the fact that Carniol doesn’t like Harper or his policies, Carniol is Jewish, therefore Harper’s values are un-Jewish.

The ragtag, motley, malodorous, and mostly medicated crew known fondly as Social Justice Warriors argues that Christianity represents power and oppression and misogyny and homophobia and maybe even capitalism, so it is not scientifically nor biologically possible for Christians to be oppressed.
Forgive them, Father, for they don’t know a goddamned thing about history.
They know nothing of Christianity’s first few hundred years under the Romans. They know nothing of Tamerlane leaving hundreds of thousands of decapitated Christian skulls in his bloody wake. They know nothing of the religious underpinnings of the Armenian genocide. They know nothing of the mass slaughter of Christians under totalitarian communist regimes. They certainly know nothing about the fact that since the early eighth century, Muslim imperialists have raped, murdered, tortured, and beheaded Christians everywhere they could get away with it. They don’t know that the mass persecution of Christians during the French Revolution is considered by many to be the first modern genocide. They don’t know that in Saudi Arabia, Christians are routinely whipped in public and executed. They don’t know that in North Korea, Christians are being exterminated in gas chambers. Despite all the chest-thumping they do about “Islamophobia” and “anti-Semitism,” they don’t seem to know that an estimated 80% of all modern religious persecution worldwide happens to Christians.
And they definitely don’t act like they know that for decades, the Middle East has been one ongoing slow-motion anti-Christian Kristallnacht that only seems to be escalating.
Or what’s worse, they know all of that and they don’t care. They might even enjoy it. Progressivism is an ideology of highly selective compassion.
Don’t forget this.
Because so many women are as f*cked up as Penelope Spheeris?
And so many women see this particular way of being “f*cked up” — a real or feigned allergy to work & healthy relationships, and the success that can come with them — as “normal”?
The Decline series remains her most important work, both creatively and in terms of how it has affected her life. While filming the third documentary, which chronicles the lives of LA’s homeless punks, she met the man who has been her boyfriend for the past 18 years. Today she’s packaging up a birthday card (he just turned 50) and some socks to send to him because he’s locked up in an institution in Florida, more than 2,000 miles away. (…)
With the films finally out on DVD, Spheeris says she has been genuinely surprised at how excited audiences are to see them again. “Put it this way,” Fox says: “Every screening that we’ve gone to, she’s like, ‘I don’t think anyone’s gonna show up,’ and then it’s sold out.” Spheeris has now set her sights on making a fourth Decline film, although she won’t disclose what it’s about. (…)
“I think the reason I never rereleased ’em is because it was gonna be so much work.” (…)
“The only movies I could get released were movies that I basically just sold out on and took the money,” she sighs.

How society got this way? We did it to ourselves:
Molly finally dies:
Blasts from (my) past:
Unreported at the time — especially not in Joe Strummer’s piss-and-vinegar, all upper case “tour diary” commissioned by England’s punk purist New Music Express – was a tiny yet telling incident that took place the night before the band mounted the stage.
It’s a throwaway anecdote that accidentally captures, in miniature, the beginning of the end of the Seventies, as two cultures collided and one era split into two.
As road manager Johnny Green recalls, Strummer called him first thing in the morning, hoarsely begging Green to come to his room right away.
“I’ve done something awful. Terrible. I shouldn’t have done it.”
Having learned of Sid Vicious’ ignominious end just days earlier, Green’s mind raced.
“Done what?” he demanded, bracing himself for the answer.
“I went out last night with Andy Warhol to Studio 54,” a shamed Strummer confessed.
Adding, according to some versions:
“And I enjoyed myself.”
(And one of the “10 Obscure Songs That Should Have Been Hits”)
“That’s it. We’re not gonna be The Gentlemen anymore…”
I’m both saddened and heartened by all this.
It’s reassuring to learn that deracinated young males have carved out a Title IX-free oasis where they can still interact like, well, young males.
In our enervated, feminized, safety-first world, “video games are a simulacrum of masculine virtue: challenge, mastery, control.”
The parish priest, the Reverend Giancarlo Manieri, said he had no control over what happened outside the church and that inside the funeral was celebrated normally, the Ansa news agency reported. (…)
On Thursday several commentators noted the irony that a reported mob boss was allowed an elaborate funeral at the church while the Archdiocese of Rome refused to allow a funeral at the same church in 2006 for Piergiorgio Welby, then the symbol of Italy’s right-to-die movement.
Welby, who had muscular dystrophy and was unable to eat, speak or breathe on his own, got his wish to die in December 2006 when a doctor disconnected his respirator. His case split the overwhelmingly Catholic nation but the local church defended its decision to deny him a Catholic funeral, arguing that allowing it would have legitimised attitudes contrary to God’s law.

The beauty of turning childbirth into nothing is you turn women into weak little dudes. Now she feels like a loser if she’s not strong enough to carry a grown man out of a burning building or do enough pull-ups to become a Marine. It’s like putting Superman in a vat of kryptonite and kicking him in the balls. Women strive to be something they’re not and create movies where they know kung fu and can lose the cops in a car chase. Making them into dudes means straight guys get the same sex life gay men have. Sometimes women complain that they “catch feelings” after being treated like a colostomy bag for yet another stranger’s semen, but we make sure they feel terrible about it. Isn’t that amazing? We convinced women their feelings are an STD. You couldn’t make this stuff up. (…)
A generation ago, the ideal woman was a friend in the living room, a mom in the kitchen, and a slut in the bedroom. Today she’s a slut everywhere and a slave at work. Way to go, us!
