I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.

Amazona there is a difference between taking a short cut to the Moral High Ground and actually looking out from the Moral High Ground. I’ll give you this point you are absolutely right that it is as simple as voting for Progressive or Liberal candidates to get your moral superiority biscuit. As a group Progressives do stand for good things. Being against poverty, torture, corruption, misogyny, bigotry, abuse aren’t simply things that Progressives are against though. Conservatives are also against many of these societal scourges.

This is where things get confusing and clearly why conservatives are tripped up and find themselves unpopular both electorally and in general. Progressives don’t require a purity test, a loyalty test, or a religious affiliation to walk into our tent. Conservatives with their messages about tax rates being too high should, on that issue alone, have had a way in to the minds of the moderates and independents out there but for some reason they have a social agenda that is more important to them than the economic agenda.

Issues like same sex marriage, abortion and immigration are where conservatives fail simply because their tent is not as inclusive. I’m not going to be so closed minded as to say that this is because of some grand bigoted conspiracy but it is what it is. Conservatives offer little to blacks, Latinos, members of the LGBTQ community, single mothers or the non religious. The coalition that has been built by conservatives since the fall of Nixon of working class whites in the rural West and South and a few upper middle class and wealthy whites who have an agenda driven by heredity and inheritance. This coalition had a majority during the Reagan era and had the Moral High Ground in the dying age of the Cold War. This coalition drove America forward to a conservative vision that likely thought that with political power would come the power to change society; to pull it back from the brink. At this point in Reagan’s second term no one would have imagined that 18 states and the District of Columbia would recognize the marriage rights of same sex couples.

And yet, thirty years later, here you are in an America that seems nearly alien to you. Looking up at people like me who are standing on top of the mountain of Morality. What happened? Is the question most of you are asking and that is the smartest question you can ask and it has an easy answer. Three decades ago, the Greatest Generation were the electoral force in America. They were more conservative than even you Amazona having never dabbled in the experimentation of the 1960s and 1970s with Liberalism as you have said you did. These men and women who were adults in the 1940s and 1950s were around your age now in the 1980s and Reagan was an ultimate relief to them. Hey were afraid the Greatest were that all of their hard work to secure freedom and liberty for the coming generations of THEIR CHILDREN was going to wasted by the creeping Socialism, Diversity and Depravity that they saw in Liberalism.

The answer is obvious what happened. Those from the Greatest Generation had children, the Baby Boomers, and those Boomers had children in the 1970s. Those Generation X children had children Generation Y, or the Millenials. Being born now to the Generation Y women are the Digital Natives of the information age or Gen Z kids. The easy answer to the question of what happened to fear of authoritarian religious, political or corporate power is the last generation that never questioned them has nearly died entirely and has been replaced with an ever more questioning set of grandchildren.

Those grandchildren continued the trend of questioning all authority that began in the 1960s into the new Millennium. I’ll be the first to admit that the War on Poverty was a failure because it simply threw money at a problem that could not be solved so simply. However, in that time the Greatest Generation still held sway on all matters social and the ground was not yet fertile for the sort of change that one sees today.

hindsight 2315
In Hindsight
On my side of the great political divide Progressives worry about the pendulum swinging back toward conservatism on a daily basis. Maybe the generation that will be born to young girls that are infants now in America in the 2030s and 2040s will hearken back to the nostalgic days of the 1940s and 1950s. Who knows? By the time they go to the polls for the first time they will live in an America so saturated in information both for the good and the bad that the messages that resonated with 21 year olds in 1945 will seem as archaic as silent movies do today.

I take Fred Schwartz’s decision to distance this newspaper from the cancer that is Blogs4Victory very seriously so after this example of conservative hypocrisy from the disgraced Bill Logan I too will be taking a sabbatical from commenting on their delusions. These people constantly state that the writers and researchers here are living in a fantasy world yet it is the fantasy that is supported by their own religious beliefs. “There cannot be a Heaven without a Hell,” is a constant in this Afterlife. Yet religious Conservatives at B4V mock that their is even a possibility that I, or Fred Schwartz or Pain even exist in the realm where we do live. To sum up, their fantasies, that all of their loved ones go to Heaven must be true because it supports their worldview; our reality is impossible because it is in conflict with their ideal that all Conservatives go to Heaven.

This level of delusion is important to understand when dealing with Conservatives especially ones of an age that lived through the Cold War. The fight against the Marxist-Leninism of the Soviet Union was supposed to be the last great fight that America was ever to have. It would be a winner take all battle between Communism and Capitalism, Christianity versus Atheism and Democracy versus Totalitarianism. Of course, this hasn’t been the case. There were many complexities politically and economically that do not fit into neat little boxes regarding the collapse of the Soviet Union. The same thing would have been true has America been broken up for similar reasons and the Soviets won the ideological battle for Terra.

Bill Logan, aka Neocon1, makes light of many things. He mocks the working poor and their struggle for a Living Wage. What he does is typical of a man who is angry that Death is so close and he has not been rewarded on Terra with what he felt he deserved because he was loyal to his racial tribe and religious tribe. As a Human Being, in that great struggle to become one he has failed because he has chosen the opposite path of Nelson Mandela and now fights for hate rather than love. To be on the side of hate is to relish lying and obscuring the facts to convince the other rotting souls who ally with conservatism that the Progressives are due for punishment for taking away the golden future that white Conservatives were promised. That golden future, sadly for Bill Logan is neither the golden shower he lusts for, nor is it a golden parachute; that future now is being enjoyed by the powerful oligarchs of the American 1%.

Neocon1 in his most recent tour de force of hypocrisy and obfuscation note that McDonald’s is installing 7,000 touch screens at restaurants to replace cashiers. It is a response to last week’s push by fast food workers for a Living Wage in the United States. Neocon1 gives the impression with his post that the hammer is going to come down on McDonald’s workers for standing up to their corporate masters. However, this story is neither about McDonald’s restaurants in the United States nor is it a current reaction to the protests. The story is about restaurants in Europe and was originally written in May of 2011. In the article itself, are the words, “McDonald’s says they have no interest in replacing cashiers with kiosks in Australia, however, or anywhere else for that matter.” So once again Neocon1 depends on the rabid stupidity of the other walking corpses of Conservatism who gobble up the feces of bigotry and anti-intelelctualism at B4V. To me they are to be pitied not to waste digital space on here or anywhere else. For at least a few months, unless their crimes of hypocrisy are grave, I will devote my time to pressing home the Progressive agenda to my American readers and enjoying the warm weather here in Hell.

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Yesterday Ron Mapes of Concord, New Hampshire wrote the following letter to the editor of the Concord Monitor:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

Mr Mapes selectively quotes then Senator Obama’s speech of 16 March 2006 on the floor of the United States Senate. The full text of that speech is archived here at Snopes.com. The point the letter writer is trying to make is not a simple one, however, We, Ourselves, see the message as very clear. President Obama, to Mr Mapes and millions of other like minded Americans, is not an honest person. To the conservative element bent on having its way despite being a retrograde minority view sees the 44th President of the United States as the antithesis of a “true red blooded American patriot.” The leader of the free world therefore to the far right does not love the G-d that all conservative white Americans worship on this very day. And most definitively this man that was twice elected President does not love the country despite garnering 135 million votes in those two elections and presiding over the most difficult economic recovery in American since the Great Depression.

Mapes says the time for Impeachment of the sitting president is now. We, Ourselves of The Collective and the Meditators feel America, to use a popular colloquialism has bigger fish to fry. We believe that those who believe as this man does are fighting a war long lost on behalf of the memory of those long dead who reaped the benefits of generations of misogyny, bigotry and power concentrated in the hands of a tribally loyal few. The Collective understands that there is huge profit in telling people with closed minds exactly what they want to hear. Rush Limbaugh has made a career of doing just that. We, Ourselves, would ask you, the reader of this post, what has Limbaugh ever offered as a solution to any of the problems that America has today? Better, when his ideology ruled in Washington did he do anything other than to support his side blindly?

The Meditators often ask why people, no matter how tribally motivated do such things? We ask the same question in regard to minority violence in urban centers all across America? But unlike the far right which seeks only to blame others for its ills while offering nothing new as a solution, We Ourselves do strive to put measures forth to stem the suffering of the American middle class. Ron Mapes ideology is not the disease it is a symptom of the inability for a segment of America not to be able to let go of the need to have someone to struggle against vice joining the fight for Progress. Trillions have been wasted on the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty which were doomed without utilizing the proper tools. The solutions to both are legalization and education. To be a member of free society demands both responsibility and sacrifice and to that end ideological conservatives and thugs that want to hurt people and damage property are joined at the hip. Neither see what they are doing to their reputations as a group as harm because they are enjoying their moment in the sun.

Impeachment is not the solution to the problems that Ron Mapes sees that are a cancer in America, because Obama is not the problem. The problem in America now is that the conservative ideologues on Main Street USA have taken the Middle Class hostage piled them onto a train speeding toward a mountain tunnel where the poor are forced to roam and are smiling all the way to the bank with overflowing campaign coffers thanks to Citizens United. If you want more freedom and prosperity in America do not vote for the party that wants to send America back to back alley abortions, racial segregation and criminal prosecutions for LGBT persons; vote for a party that wants all people to be at least middle class and if you falter will be there with a safety net to allow you to reach for the brass ring. Bruce Currie who comments on the letter makes the obvious even more clear:\

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality–when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That’s a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink–and are taking the country with it. They’re getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Does this sound familiar?

dzama2398-200

We, Ourselves, of The Collective have noticed there has been a considerable argument brewing among conservatives regarding whether or not talk radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh should be chosen to moderate GOP Presidential candidate debates in 2016. This strikes Us as an interesting topic of debate on many levels. On one side of the issue Limbaugh would draw a considerable audience among conservatives who would want to see how he handles the candidates and what questions he would ask of them. Limbaugh is not the mainstream sort of moderator and would add We, are sure, his own particular brand of spice to the generally moribund debate schedule. On the other side of the debate the one that mainstream GOP elites, like Grover Norquist, reside this is a major problem– Rush would become the star of the debates casting shadows on the likes of Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Chris Christie.

PresidentRushLimbaugh

We would like to offer a solution to the far right conservatives who find Christie too liberal and are weary of the name Bush. Why not support Limbaugh to run for President? The Meditators have the opinion that Limbaugh could win the GOP nomination quite easily and quite possibly could get out enough of the GOP base as to bring the Senate back into GOP control. The problem with a candidacy by Rush is that the Left especially the far Left would react equally to him as the far Right will. No amount of voter suppression in GOP controlled states would keep blacks and Latinos, the GLBTQ community and the Progressive Youth vote from flocking to the polls in 2016 to cast their ballots against Rush Limbaugh.

A Limbaugh third party candidacy We have estimated could raise as much as 750 million during the campaign with much of that being funded by powerful corporate TEA Party advocates with deep pockets such as the Koch brothers. This type of run would effectively divide the GOP forever and end the party as a national going concern. After 2016 the GOP would be lucky to keep control of the House in 2018 and would lose the 2020 election with Texas turning blue for the first time in many decades.

In the final analysis We, Ourselves, see the use of Limbaugh as a moderator for debates as far more of a destructive force in conservative politics on the professional scale. A Rush for President push will likely happen next year but it will fizzle out as the GOP establishment crushes any notion of having an entertainer whose job it is to occupy the minds of those already in the echo chamber on Monday through Friday stand on the stage with the party’s heavy hitters. For both of these tasks Limbaugh simply has too little appeal outside his own base and too much baggage to be anything more than a political novelty.

THE CONSERVATIVE MIND: FACTS ARE STUPID THINGS AND WHY LEO PUSATERI ISN’T THE SORT OF PUNDIT YOU NEED TO READ

[NB: My conservative buddy Cluster shows how the conservative mind should work; in an effort to find common ground and find solutions. To check out his excellent site, click the chick.-- F.S.]

I have quite a few bones to pick right with Leo Pusateri’s latest regurgitation of right wing fearspeak at Blogs4Victory so you might want to settle in with a nice late morning cocktail, as I am doing, because will take a little while. The smart kids in the room are cognizant of what a hate crime is. To Leo Pusateri they are a Progressive tool to get back at White Americans. To a man like him whose mind is clouded with a dangerous cocktail of conservative ideology and religious hubris, hate crimes are nothing more than another form of welfare doled out in the form of revenge.

For those of you who aren’t that smart, or are conservatives let me refresh your memory of what defines a hate crime in the United States of America. Keep in mind now that unlike many of the fine folks I work with here in Hell, I am not an attorney and the only bar to which I belong is the glorious one down the street at Vulca. That said:

The modern era of hate-crime legislation began in 1968 with the passage of federal statute, 18 U.S. 245, part of the Civil Rights Act which made it illegal to “by force or by threat of force, injure, intimidate, or interfere with anyone who is engaged in six specified protected activities, by reason of their race, color, religion, or national origin.” However, “The prosecution of such crimes must be certified by the U.S. attorney general.” Streissguth, Tom (2003). Hate Crimes (Library in a Book), p.3. ISBN 0-8160-4879-7.

Those six protected activities include:

(b) Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, by force or threat of force willfully injures, intimidates or interferes with, or attempts to injure, intimidate or interfere with—
(1) any person because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—
(A) voting or qualifying to vote, qualifying or campaigning as a candidate for elective office, or qualifying or acting as a poll watcher, or any legally authorized election official, in any primary, special, or general election;
(B) participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility, or activity provided or administered by the United States;
(C) applying for or enjoying employment, or any perquisite thereof, by any agency of the United States;
(D) serving, or attending upon any court in connection with possible service, as a grand or petit juror in any court of the United States;
(E) participating in or enjoying the benefits of any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance; or

(2) any person because of his race, color, religion or national origin and because he is or has been—
(A) enrolling in or attending any public school or public college;
(B) participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility or activity provided or administered by any State or subdivision thereof;
(C) applying for or enjoying employment, or any perquisite thereof, by any private employer or any agency of any State or subdivision thereof, or joining or using the services or advantages of any labor organization, hiring hall, or employment agency;
(D) serving, or attending upon any court of any State in connection with possible service, as a grand or petit juror;
(E) traveling in or using any facility of interstate commerce, or using any vehicle, terminal, or facility of any common carrier by motor, rail, water, or air;
(F) enjoying the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of any inn, hotel, motel, or other establishment which provides lodging to transient guests, or of any restaurant, cafeteria, lunchroom, lunch counter, soda fountain, or other facility which serves the public and which is principally engaged in selling food or beverages for consumption on the premises, or of any gasoline station, or of any motion picture house, theater, concert hall, sports arena, stadium, or any other place of exhibition or entertainment which serves the public, or of any other establishment which serves the public and
(i) which is located within the premises of any of the aforesaid establishments or within the premises of which is physically located any of the aforesaid establishments, and
(ii) which holds itself out as serving patrons of such establishments; or

(3) during or incident to a riot or civil disorder, any person engaged in a business in commerce or affecting commerce, including, but not limited to, any person engaged in a business which sells or offers for sale to interstate travelers a substantial portion of the articles, commodities, or services which it sells or where a substantial portion of the articles or commodities which it sells or offers for sale have moved in commerce; or

(4) any person because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—
(A) participating, without discrimination on account of race, color, religion or national origin, in any of the benefits or activities described in subparagraphs (1)(A) through (1)(E) or subparagraphs (2)(A) through (2)(F); or
(B) affording another person or class of persons opportunity or protection to so participate; or

(5) any citizen because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such citizen or any other citizen from lawfully aiding or encouraging other persons to participate, without discrimination on account of race, color, religion or national origin, in any of the benefits or activities described in subparagraphs (1)(A) through (1)(E) or subparagraphs (2)(A) through (2)(F), or participating lawfully in speech or peaceful assembly opposing any denial of the opportunity to so participate—
shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death. As used in this section, the term “participating lawfully in speech or peaceful assembly” shall not mean the aiding, abetting, or inciting of other persons to riot or to commit any act of physical violence upon any individual or against any real or personal property in furtherance of a riot. Nothing in subparagraph (2)(F) or (4)(A) of this subsection shall apply to the proprietor of any establishment which provides lodging to transient guests, or to any employee acting on behalf of such proprietor, with respect to the enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of such establishment if such establishment is located within a building which contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and which is actually occupied by the proprietor as his residence.

That is the root of the hate crime law. Now many conservatives only consider violent crime when discussing hate crimes or bias-motivated crimes as they are actually called in courts of law. Violent crimes are not the only constituent of what can be a bias-motivated crime. Pusateri clearly doesn’t realize that hate crimes laws on the federal level aren’t a new phenomena. Hate crimes legislation actually started in the post Civil War era with the Civil Rights Act of 1871. However, it did take over one hundred years for the states to begin to enact hate crime legislation and that began with California [big shock here!-- D.V.] in 1978.

For a moment let’s look at some of the things that this conservative man is struggling with here. He feels that the murder of Delbert Belton is a hate crime. Well it isn’t unless it can be proven that hate symbols or hate language was used during the attack. Being a bigot and causing someone’s murder doesn’t immediately qualify the crime as a hate crime were that the case, George Zimmerman would be in prison right now. Pusateri says he “doesn’t believe in the concept of hate crimes.” Well, this isn’t a real surprise to me at all when you consider Pusateri likely doesn’t believe that black civil rights, GLBTQ civil rights or the civil rights of women have ever been threatened.

And then, yes, there is the bugiman of “thought crimes.” In the conservative lexicon there is no greater nugget of fearspeak than this. But why does this man use the term “thought crime.” Well that is simply because he wants those in his little tribe of conservatives to always feel they are under attack. The “Libruls” are coming for your guns. Not true. The “Proggies” want to allow bands of racially different thugs to be able to muder and rape white people with impunity. Also, not true. The “Commies on the Left,” as if there were any commies on the Right, want to ruin your small business with ObamaCare. Not anywhere near true. So this is designed to scare the shit out of a generation of people between the ages of 45 and Death who have stood by eating Chee-tos and watching TV while their country shifted socially right under their feet. These people’s parents expected fear of the Church and Hell to keep the “other” in check. Now that we know many churches are filled with predators and that some will go to great lengths to cover up that predation and abuse this one flied about as well as a lead zeppelin. There was until the 1960s a concept of groupthink on the part of communites, actual whole suburbs who thought their fight for racial discrimination was necessary simply out of the fear of being ostracized. Now nobody cares because America is better when diversity is celebrated and people live within the law.

hindsight 2219
In Hindsight

Pusateri is angered most because he truly believes that only whites get punished for hate crimes. In fact, according to the latest data available from the Bureau of Justice Statistics in March 2013, 63% of violent hate crime victims were White and 7% were Black between 2007 and 2011. Among the perps, during the same period, 53% were White and 27% were Black. Maybe with the latest two high profile acts of violent ignorance perpetrated upon innocent people by folks that aren’t White so prominently in the media those that want to drink from the well that Leo Pusateri has poisoned with fear and religious based bigotry need to read this article from Tim Wise and sleep a little bit better tonight. Or, they can read these stats about the epidemic of White American suicide in rural America and never sleep again. Given the choice of walking down a street in Brooklyn vice having Thanksgiving dinner in a rural White home where the marriage is crumbling, there are numerous guns, and there’s a lot of debt? I’ll take Brooklyn, anytime.

MINORITY REPORT: MARK NOONAN CANNOT BE AS “CATHOLIC AS HE WANTS TO BE”

Mark Noonan asks a trap question at B4V:

“Which is worse: a democracy where minorities are oppressed or a dictatorship where minorities are protected?”

His question is really, “Do you dislike Obama more or miss Reagan more?” Since America isn’t and never will be a “democracy” the question is moot. Since the United States has checks and balances across the three branches of government it is not a dictatorship no matter how much white religious conservative dislike the first person of color elected as Chief Executive of the United States Government. And finally since Catholicsim isn’t and will never be the State religion of the United States, Mark Noonan can once again go and pound sand.

I replied thusly:

From what I gather here Mark in your post you seem to be admitting that those with conservative values, regardless of race, are now the minority in America. I think that as you define what conservative is you are accurate there. I also agree that you have the right to be as “Catholic as you want to be.” What likely, and I am just guessing here, irks you is that you cannot carry out your mission of being as Catholic as you want to be in places like the office where you work. Until such activity is allowed in the workplace you will never feel that you have all the religious rights that you feel you deserve. I have to say that you do have the right to be as Catholic as you want to be 24/7/365 but your employer also has a right to fire you for disrupting his office or for any other reason he needs to rid himself or herself of a destabilizing individual in their corporate midst. Same would apply to a Muslim, a Hindu, a Protestant, a Jew, a Zoroastrian, a Satanist, a Jainist or an Atheist. I love the Constitution more than you do Mark Noonan and I’m not even American!

And yes I had a wonderful vacation, thank you.

I ask a lot of questions in my job and no one can ever say that I am not opinionated. I am an unapologetic Progressive/Socialist. I think women should rule Terra for the next 500 just so they can formulate a plan to fix all the ills that men have done in the first 6000 years of civilization. I believe no child on Terra should ever go to bed hungry, thirsty or in fear that someone will come to their home and take them away. My beliefs motivate me to attempt great things every day but in the great scheme of thing I have no idea really if I have the right answers. Like everyone else I just know what makes me feel good–in the present. I say all of this begging a question, “Why can’t there be peace on Terra?” That’s a question lawyers, politicians, doctors, priests, rabbis, imams, the blind, the lazy, the rich, the poor, men, women and children have been asking since time immemorial. I still look for some clue to the answer to that nagging question everyday. This morning I got a fleeting glimpse of the shadow of the answer as is escaped out a window on the Internet from a young woman Tempest Adore:

This was originally meant to be a Facebook status, but I got so into it, and 6 pages is a bit too much to post on Facebook. Honestly, I haven’t read over it, I just wrote it and posted it. I also started to falter towards the end, my mindset seemed to have changed, so I might go back and edit. And it’s not complete, I stopped mid-sentence, so I have to add the ending.

Seriously, what is going on with the world lately? America especially. I have witnessed more racism, homophobia, religious intolerance, bigotry, hypocrisy, and just plain ignorance and hate more lately than ever. We are all people.

When it comes to homophobia.. gay, straight, bi, trans, pan, poly, whatever: we’re all looking for love. Where we find it shouldn’t matter to anyone else who isn’t directly involved. It does NOT affect you, STOP affecting them. If you don’t like it, don’t engage in it. Don’t gawk at it. If you go to an art store and don’t like one of the paintings, do you FIGHT to have it removed? No, you move on and let others who think and see differently enjoy it. Love is Love. In a world full of war and hate and violence and despair, we should be promoting and fighting for EVERY kind of love, instead of fighting against it and causing more anguish.

When it comes to race.. we’re all fucking human. I understand being patriotic, but EVERY race has done amazing world-changing things; EVERY race has done horrible, evil things; EVERY race is just trying to live, the same as every OTHER race, just in their own way. Who cares?!

When it comes to religion.. faith can be a very powerful thing that saves lives and helps people find themselves and be at peace with themselves. However, faith is personal. EVERYONE’s faith is different, even if you share the same religious beliefs. If people are at peace with themselves, that is all that matters. Just because they don’t believe the same as you, or the same way that you do, does not make them wrong. We only have so many years to live; let people do it their own way. THEIR afterlife is not YOUR concern. And, even if by some chance one specific religion is right and all the others ARE wrong, let those people find that out themselves. I’m sorry if this offends anyone, but I do not believe ANY god would turn someone away simply because they lived their life believing in their own way, finding their own faith. There are SO MANY different religions, they ARE NOT and should NEVER BE law. No matter WHAT, it is never OK to force your views on others, and make them live their lives YOUR way. Nor is it OK to hate them, or shun them, or disrespect them, simply because they are finding their happiness a different way than you.

When it comes to bigotry.. everything I’ve said above applies. If everyone were the same, we would not have come this far. And honestly, if you have so much hate, or fear, or sadness inside of you (which you must to be so disapproving), maybe you should take a step back and realize that those people ARE happy, why aren’t you? What are you missing from your own life that you’re trying to fill by controlling, judging, or sabotaging others’?

As for the hypocrisy.. seriously? No one is perfect. And the main point of this, NO ONE IS THE SAME. You cannot blame someone for making the same mistakes you have. Even if you made them in different ways. We all sin, and no one sin is greater than any other, mainly because no one person is greater than any other. The world, and life, is not simple; it is not black and white; it is not meant to be simply right or wrong. Life itself is a gray area. Don’t justify your sin and disparage another’s, because everyone has different reasons and thoughts and beliefs and feelings. What is right for you may not be right for another. You can not forgive yourself without in turn forgiving others.
 
 

By far this is the best explanation of a path to real happiness that I have ever come across. It has brightened my day and it is early here on the East Coast of the United States as I wrap up my vacation in DC. So today I, while among the Living, will share the love. You never know I might be the guy who buys you a cold drink on a day when it’s going to be a sweltering 100 plus degrees out. Or I might just be the guy who thanks you and listens while we ride on the Metro. Either way from what tempest Adore has written I understand that love is more than desire it is a willingness to give up a little of yourself to learn about another.

Pax Terra!

THE MEDITATORS SPEAK: MARK EDWARD NOONAN IS A HYPOCRITE BLINDED BY THE LOSS OF THE DEMONS HE LOVED

We, Ourselves, of The Collective and The Meditators on all matters metaphysical embrace the decisions made by the Supreme Court of the United States this week regarding marriage equality. Equally, We denounce their decision regarding the Voting Rights Act as a retrograde step that gives hope to bigots that they can control society via the ballot box. Control is a major theme in modern American society as We see it. Corporations want to control the the vast pool of money held in the hands of a powerful few and use it to generate even more money. Marketing firms want to control the minds of American consumers to buy what they do not need yet must have. Religions have ceased to be in the business of “saving souls” and have devolved into the business of saving their political power by way of culture war battles that in the great scheme of things mean very little. it is a sad commentary on the young adulthood of the American republic.

Mark Edward Noonan is a human male who lives near Las Vegas, Nevada. He has admitted that he was not always an ultraconservative, or a libertarian. For most of his life he was a typical average human who wanted the same things most young men want– a person to love who loves him, money and recognition for his accomplishments. Noonan got none of these things and his life became a cycle of depression and desire wrapped in ennui. He took solace, as he has admitted in online pornography and while the Collective sees nothing shameful or wrong with observing adult human sexuality transmitted by digital images using this replace real world relationships is a dangerous path to trek upon. Sad and lonely Mark Edward Noonan turned to the last resort for most people in your time who are desperate for some sort of social interaction that can lead to the physical coupling that is necessary for the mental health of the human organism– the Church.

Like most who are addicted to a destructive behavior Noonan is not simply comforted by his transformation he is compelled to transform others as well. While We, Ourselves, find this an admirable avocation which is to be applauded all sentient beings organized into a society must understand that all actions, even those secret and terrible that many would like to remain hidden, have consequences. In his article at Blogs4Victory this morning, which The Meditators digested slowly, Noonan decries the victories won for advocates of marriage equality in the United States as an infringement on the religion that turned him into a Man from a Loser. he argues that his right to press the source of his transformation from a Loser into a Man into the hearts and minds of his colleagues at work or anywhere else for that matter is being restricted and that that right should be codified into law.

Here is where we find a conundrum that leads into a deep dark trap for anyone who takes their Metaphysics seriously. the desire to control for one’s own purpose to the detriment of the rights of others is a ditch dug with the shovel and mattock of preferential logic and hypocrisy. In their minds these people can hold two polar opposite ideas and to them they seem to compliment one another. The first is that they have the right based upon their beliefs, unproven in any Court of Law or any laboratory of Science, to hold a position of primacy within a society simply because for generations this has been the case. Swiftly it is forgotten by such persons, that Change is the only and singular constant in any social organization. Second, they feel that because they have this right to primacy within a society based solely on tradition and race that they have the right to deny others, with whom they find flaws or by the teachings of their religion they find their behavior abhorrent to religious teachings, their own civil rights. This is the worst of all traps.

Noonan, by his own words says, “Of course, now I want a bit more – I want that really muscular protection for Free Exercise. Rather tired of being pushed around – and so I want laws on the books which make it illegal to attempt to push me around based upon my religious beliefs…and same goes for everyone else. Yes, I realize this will then erect no legal barrier to someone who wants to say that smoking dope is their sacrament, or even that Muslims might want four wives. I’m indifferent to that – my ability to freely exercise my religion trumps all else here and I’ll take the good with the bad.” To Mark Noonan the concept of Free Exercise refers to the Free Exercise of the beliefs that transformed him from a Loser in his own mind to Man in outward appearance to the world at large. It is because he craves the respect of others and recognition for his transformation that he feels that he should have the power, without consequence to spread his message of conversion to all as is taught by his particular belief. The trap here belongs to Us as those who both are at war with Theocracy, in all its forms, and with hypocrisy in all its forms. It would be facile for The Collective to opine that in this case We, Ourselves, find firm footing in Metaphysics and Logic to dictate that those who feel this way should have no rights to do so. Such a thing would be an annoyance to society and make Human beings who did not believe as Noonan does uncomfortable in their quotidian activities. However, to do such a thing would make Us a far greater hypocrite than mark Edward Noonan.

The reality of the matter is that in America Mark Noonan needs no muscular protection for his religion because he has that legal protection already. His upset comes not from that he knows this but that those protections for his religious liberty are limited by the only power in America greater than organized religion– capitalism. This is why this man portrays himself as a Distributist and this bring Us deeper into Mark Noonan’s fallacious hypocrisy.

Distributism, an arcane by product of Noonan’s religious belief, holds the following as central, “Distributism sees the family of two parents and their child or children as the central and primary social unit of human ordering and the principal unit of a functioning distributist society and civilization. This unit is also the basis of a multi-generational extended family, which is embedded in socially as well as genetically inter-related communities, nations, etc., and ultimately in the whole human family past, present and future. The economic system of a society should therefore be focused primarily on the flourishing of the family unit, but not in isolation: at the appropriate level of family context, as is intended in the principle of subsidiarity. Distributism reflects this doctrine most evidently by promoting the family, rather than the individual, as the basic type of owner; that is, distributism seeks to ensure that most families, rather than most individuals, will be owners of productive property. The family is, then, vitally important to the very core of distributist thought.” Mark Noonan believes this and goes the extra mile with this comment on the same article, “My view is that gay marriage would best remain banned – but I’ve also come to the conclusion that marriages, themselves, should not be sanctioned by the State in any way, shape or form. My desire is to as swiftly as possible separate marriage and State (thus making the push for gay marriage moot) while at the same time enacting laws which put very long, sharp and powerful teeth in to our First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion (boiled down, the laws would come out to hold that when in doubt, a person’s claim to free exercise trumps State requirements). As for marriage, itself, that is for Christians and Jews who actually practise their faith and it is up to us – as believers – to make it work as God intended.”

It would be expected that a man who has made a transformation from Loser to Man by virtue of such powerful belief coupled with adherence to Distributism would have a large family of children who soon would be going out into the world spreading the story of their father’s ascendance from the depths in the near future. No, not at all. Noonan has married but he has no children. His life is the antithesis of what he believes and is in chaotic opposition to the very rules by which he says be was transformed. Mark Noonan wants special laws to give his beliefs primacy over all others but he does not believe that two women or two men who are committed to each other should have their marriages recognized by the States in which they reside or by the federal government because these unions do not produce children. Yet his own marriage recognized in every state of the Union has produced none. While there are no laws in his State against his wife performing fellatio on him, or he performing cunnilingus on his wife or both of them engaging in anal sexual intercourse Noonan calls these acts between consenting adults of the same sex “abhorrent.” Why then has this man not exploded from his own hypocrisy?

[N.B. For those too young to recall Animal House here's Dean Wormer.--F.S.]

First off before I even delve into the primal scream left by B4V’s resident conservative college perfesser that details just how hollow and ignorant his colleagues in that echo chamber are I have to say this. Dude, if you are going to try to rip off Mel Brooks or you’re trying to appear above it all by using a french word in your screen name use all the fucking French. Compte d’Haricots might have been lost on neanderthal watersports loving catholic fucktard bigots like Bill Logan, general contractor, aka Neocon1, but it isn’t on the lot of us who actually got out of high school with a diploma and don’t reek of stale teenage girl piss.

Now that that’s out of my system here is the braying lament left by The Count:

Seriously people!

I was about to weigh in on the SUBJECT of this thread yesterday when I saw you allowed yourself to be hijacked into Student Opinion Polls, AGW, and other worthless diversions

The Troll Patrol is not here to debate with you!
They are here to disrupt.
THAT’S IT!

They know next to nothing about everything, so they’ll lead you into endless debates on the finer points of just how stupid you are. Then piss and moan when their inanity is finally deleted.

Get a clue! You can prove them for the asses they are with endless minutiae and ever encompassing facts and they’ll declare victory. They do the Happy Snoopy Dance when they’re deleted because It Proves to THEM That You Can’t Win an Argument With Them!

By the time the stench was cleared, the thread no longer has any continuity, and you look like you’re arguing with yourselves and losing those arguments.

People SERIOUSLY! Don’t engage them!

Once they post a comment about a Student Opinion Poll they proved they are unwilling and unable to discuss/debate or contribute in any way.

Once they bring Global Warming up, once they start on evolution or gay marriage in a thread about anything except gay marriage or evolution, STOP READING and IGNORE Them!

Let their idiocy wither on the vine and get back to discussions; wait for a liberal to make a salient point before responding.

Mark had a good thread started here and I really wanted to disagree on many of the points made on subject. But I won’t be distracted any longer by old hippies, goat herders or delusional Goth-kids.

hindsight 2215

In hindsight
Now that’s pretty fucking sad. Okay, okay, I know they don’t know how to make a valid point about their bigoted and retrograde ideology. These conservatives could just simply say “I hate niggers and faggots. As a white conservative Christian I don’t believe they should have the same rights as white conservative Christians. I as a white conservative Christian think that everyone who does not believe in my brand of conservative dogma based Christianity is damned to Hell [except for Jews until we don't need them anymore]” but that would expose them to the thing they fear most–being ostracized by the others that are thinking the same things but too cowardly to stand with them because appearance and image is everything to these fucks. Now I get annoyed by how smug and verbose Amazona is to the point where I hope Jeremiah would just shove his cock down her throat until she shit herself, turned blue and her eyes crossed. But despite that skull exploding mental picture I gave you I would bet all that I have that Amazona is the least bigoted among the commenters. Still, Amazona comes through against the theocratic bullshit of Neocon1:

neo, where you are “coming from” is a conviction that a MAN named Paul, many years after the death of Christ, was not only accurately passing on the true thoughts of Christ, confided in him, but that his original writings, after passing through many translations from one language to another to another to another to another to another, each of which was filtered through the minds of MEN and subject to the prejudices and bigotries of those men as well as to the problems of translating words which have no actual literal meaning in another language, remained pure and literal representations of those thoughts and words of Christ Himself.

I understand the temptation of feeling morally superior, and the desire to support this by quoting a human being whose own words are unknown to us as he wrote them but only as a version much-handled over the centuries because you think they reflect the words of God.

I merely point out that many evils have occurred because of belief that they reflect the word and wishes of God, and that it might be a better approach to not depend on the words of men to justify hostile judgment of others.

When the Bible offers contradicting messages, one for example of love and tolerance and one of judgment and condemnation, the choice of which message to follow is significant.

In fact, along with Cluster, she might the only true conservative in the whole bunch.

Pax Terra!
