Found One!

broadbrush

The media have finally found a “right-wing, Christian” mass murderer. (Though he was also evidently a fan of Democrat/Gore-supporter Fred Phelps of “God Hates Fags” fame.)

Expect to see endless assertions on mass media that Houser is “typical” of conservatives, Tea Party members, Republicans, Christians, the right wing, legal gun owners, and so on.

Left-Facing Roof

Because Dylann Roof was decidedly leftist in his thinking (manifesto here), he is being blamed upon conservatives. Leftists, following Marx and explicitly advocated by Marxist “critical theory,” view everything in terms of race. They are so far lost in this mindset that they strongly believe, against all evidence, that Constitutional conservatives are racist by nature. […]

Ferguson

HandsUp

Citizen Tom wrote a post about the Ferguson fiasco and the subsequent “searing” report, entitled “When Liars Refuse to Give Up.”

The commenter “scout” was confused about the word “liars” (among other things). I was not:

Israel and MLK

MLK_Israel

It is interesting to me that so many on the Left are hostile to the nation of Israel, and willing to line up on the side of Palestinian terrorists. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, his thoughts on Israel are significant: […]

Religious Differences

Ikhwan

A new-to-the-Charlie-Hebdo-discussion commenter on the MENSA forum said, in part:

The day will come when we understand that the problem is not Islam but ALL religions. It was mentioned that Islam will use deadly force against those with a different ‘flavor’ of Islam. Do we forget of Christians killing each others on Belfast because of […]

Offended

My fellow MENSA member (from the previous post) commented: “But what about Freedom of Religion? Can’t I have to right to see my savior not mocked and made fun of? Have one of our most solemn beliefs respected?”

Worth it

On a MENSA forum today, one commenter asked if “satire is worth dying for.” Why insult a religion? We don’t need to do that, he suggests. Here is my reply: […]

Indigestible Blocs

Obama_in_Brisbane

“I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished. “I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors. America is indeed a joining together of many streams which go to form a mighty river which we call the American way. However, we have in the United States today hard-core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies.” […]

More Engine Trouble

SS2_firing

Just hours after I wrote of Orbital Sciences’ Antares rocket explosion, Virgin Galactica has suffered a similar fate. But this one has claimed at least one human life so far — the pilot — and the co-pilot is in bad shape. SpaceShipTwo apparently suffered an engine explosion moments after ignition, and after it was dropped from the WhiteKnightTwo mothership. This was the first in-flight explosion for the system, but there is a history here. […]
