"Everything goes in tolerant Berlin. Christopher Street Day is an annual hit." Spiegel Online 8/2005

Signs that the Fourth Reich may not be far behind.

This kind of human behavior is what generated the vacuum that resulted in the Third Reich becoming a reality, an example of a society's attempt to bring some kind of historic structure back to a country. Plato had said 800 years before Christ that successful democracies could never survive . . . that strange ideas entered the society through the arts and then the literature, moving on into the government and then mainstream to the point that even puppy dogs would stand on their hind legs and demand their freedoms, too. Plato said people would then be so upset with their new society that they would do whatever necessary to bring it back to the way it was, EVEN at the expense of their freedom (Example: Germany 1937.)

"The word is virtually impossible to translate directly into English: spiessig. The dictionary makes a noble effort, offering up words such as "conventional" and "pedantic." But such a definition does little to call up the fear bordering on paranoia that most young Germans (and a good many older Germans) have of being labeled a Spiesser. It's not all that far from calling someone a boring, scrupulous, capitalist pig -- and in a country where hipness and leftiness have achieved almost iconic status, calling someone a Spiesser is harsh indeed. In Berlin, it doesn't take much to be to be stained with the dreaded label. Indeed, in some parts of the city -- Friedrichshain, Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg -- just walking down the street in a clean collared shirt with no tattoos showing is enough to stand out from the ultra-nonchalant, hyper-cool masses. From the Berlin perspective, entire cities -- Munich, Hamburg -- are spiessig whereas Berlin itself is seen as the center of German chic where anything goes and the nightlife is unbeatable." . . . - 8/30/05 - Drudge - Spiegel Online - Germany

And you think this can continue without consequences?

The kind of disturbing freedom shown below is one that many people, who support the strange hateful ideas of Cindy Sheehan, seem to want for all America. This simply brings to light why she and others like her are so dangerous to America's structure and its maintaining the heritage that had allowed it to be, at one time, the greatest society in the world.It should be no surprise that Sheehan comes from a community close to San Francisco, an area that consumes our Watermelon Ice Cream.But hate concepts like hers have been eroding this country since the 1960s as liberal ideas, warned by Plato, were being promoted by highly liberal public figures such as John Kerry and Jane Fonda, to name a few, who knew how to use the new medium of television, many Vietnamese, who had hoped for freedom escaping to America, today referring to Kerry as Mr. Jane Fonda.And with the word "Spiessig" in Germany now having the same hurtful effect on everyday morality as "homophobic" had to mocking straight lifestyles here in the U.S. in the 1990s, a coming correction similar to Germany in the 1920s seems to be all but guaranteed.You can read for yourself where Berlin is now already proud to emulate the society that has hijacked the city of San Francisco, where there are so few children left that teacher/student ratios have dropped to 9:1 as more and more families leave, finding themselves unwelcomed and unable to live in America's most selfish and liberal city.Not surprising, this behavior has reported to have caused Germany's reproduction of new humans to drop to 1.1%, half of what is needed to support a population for the next twenty years. America's human reproduction is still at 2.1%, but that is thought to be the bare minimum necessary for decades of survival for a stable society.Is it any wonder why the terrorists hate us so, their seeing America and the West as their cultural enemy, referring to our social condition as The Great Satin.This is all happening at a time when America's infrastructure has become so fragile, leaving it's former solid industrial and moral base behind, that the act of downing only a few airliners again by terrorists could have another catastrophic effect on the economy, this time their using little or no effort.To understand how vulnerable America is today after 9/11, if you have ever stood at the end of a runway, there being over 440 airports across the U.S. with most located in industrial areas, you can easily understand how a few untraceable ground-to-air grenades could be placed in warehouses near airports to accomplish this goal on a single day.Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones at the rest of us. Spiessig, indeed! In the end, Mother Nature will continue to be the great equalizer, having buried in every human being the desire not to reproduce when the times they live in become unfriendly to raising fetuses for the purpose of further reproduction of the species. As lifestyles that cannot reproduce become more embedded in the society, the more Mother Nature will step on not only the society's ability to survive, but it's desire to even want to continue.

One to two hundred years is a blink of the eye for Mother Nature to bring humans back into balance. Plato had it right 2,600 years ago, when he said no success democracy can ever survive.

A Lebanese woman wounded in Israeli air strikes is helped from a building devastated in the attack on Tyre, Lebanon (July 16, 2006.)

Hey New York Times, if this was of an Iraqi woman your headlines would be screaming of abuse by the U.S. military, eh? But when Israel does this, the agenda suddenly changes and you assist in its victories, seeing these innocent people as acceptable collateral damage to their cause. So in turn your editors pull back on the pain and suffering the Israeli government has caused to civilians like these, who have no control over the terrorists.

But have you ever mentioned that while the Christian West helped to put Israel on this land in 1948 based on the Jews saying it was their Promised Land from the Bible, today a huge majority of Israel's Jews are now secular and blow away their Old Testament simply as a "myth?" Which means that the God of Moses and His message of a Promised Land for the Jews is really a fairy tale right out of their mouths and proven by their Minimalists.

So now that the Promised Land is a myth by their own admission and Israel is on Palestinian Land, why should Americans suffer hits by terrorists while Israel lives a lie? They should move to some other place on the planet and thrive there instead, and stop putting American young men and women of the armed services in harm's way.

Shame on you for not bringing Israel and Bush to task on this issue no one wants to talk about. The truth? What a joke, but obviously not to innocent people like the ones above. Do you really give a damn, NYT? Obviously not.

Libs' new strategy: Assault 7 year old

June 19, 2006,
Kevin McCullough

 

But on May 17 they crossed the line. That was the day that 10 of these thug-kins grabbed David Parker's 7 year old son, dragged him behind the corner of the school, well out of sight from the school officials, and proceeded to punch him in the groin, stomach, and chest, before he dropped to the ground when they then kicked and stomped on him. Several of the alleged thug-kins were children of the adults who had been protesting Parker, several of them - not even in the same class as Parker's child. It also needs to be pointed out that May 17 was a targeted date because that is the anniversary of changing the marriage definitions in the state of Massachusetts to include homosexual unions. Emotions among many activists were running very high on this day. The school district "investigated" and did determine that the attack was pre-meditated. Shockingly they decided no punishment necessary for the 10 thug-kins who were serving as political hit men for the activists in Lexington. All of this happening because one father wished to reserve the right to teach his own family's faith-based views on sexuality. I support the lawsuit that David Parker is bringing against Ash, and the Estabrook School District. Standing up is always the right thing to do. His legal fees are growing and if you are interested in making a donation to help - as I have - I would encourage you to. I would also encourage you to drop an e-mail to Paul Ash or place a phone call - either way it is obvious that Ash believes that he is unaccountable to the parents of his district. Here's Paul Ash's e-mail address: pash@sch.ci.lexington.ma.us. His phone number at the school is (781) 861-2550. His home number is (617) 244-9622 . . . read more

Brave new world

June 3, 2006,
Pat Buchanan

When Eliot wrote, the world had before it a textbook example of how democracy can be exploited by its enemies: the Third Reich. After his failed Beer Hall Putsch in 1923, Hitler decided to take the longer road to power, the democracy road. Named chancellor of Germany as leader of the largest minority party in the Reichstag in 1933, Hitler used plebiscites to enable the German people to participate in his rule and ratify his policies. After the reoccupation of the Rhineland and the Anschluss with Austria, national referenda were held. Up to 99 percent of all Germans endorsed his actions. By Munich, he was the most popular political leader in Europe. This, then, is the point. Democracy is but a process by which people participate in choosing and confirming their rulers. But if the peoples of Europe have lost their belief in the truths of Christianity -- the faith that made Europe -- and the morality and ethics derived from those truths, they can wind up with a hell on earth.  Which brings us to Holland, a nation that can rightfully claim to be in the avant-garde of post-Christian Europe.  In Amsterdam, in the Red Light District, there are brothels, sex shop and sex museums. Women advertise their charms in storefronts. Window prostitution has been legalized, as has possession of marijuana and hashish, which are sold over the counter in coffee shops. Drugs are done openly. Pornography is pervasive . . . read more

Webmaster: Read on where Holland's out-of-control pedofile population wants the age of sexual consent dropped down to 12-years old for the fresh meat. It's what NAMBLA wants, what Canada has almost done (14-years old), and what the ACLU membership is gushing over in their support of NAMBLA in a lawsuit against the organization where their material was used for the abduction and murder of a ten-year old from Massachussetts.

Gays have emerged as the new protected class in America

June 19, 2006,
John Leo

 

06/19/06 - In colleges and schools, regulations on "hate speech" now protect gays from criticism as well as meaningful debate. Andrew Sullivan, the prominent blogger and a gay man, says he is troubled by attempts "to prevent or even criminalize the expression of hostility to homosexuality, or gay rights, or indeed any another form of gay speech." Criminalizing such criticism, and even biblical citations against homosexuality, are no longer unusual in Europe and Canada. Sullivan cites the case of Lynette Burrows, a British writer on children's rights, who drew an inquiry from Scotland Yard for saying on a radio talk show that she did not believe male homosexuals should be allowed to adopt boys. "It's a risk," she said. "Would you give a small girl to two (heterosexual) men?" She said it was "sinister" to have a police investigation of a comment that hurt the feelings of gays. Also in Britain, Anglican Bishop Peter Forster drew a police investigation after telling a newspaper, "Some people who are primarily homosexual can reorientate themselves." In Canada, criticism of homosexuality is essentially illegal. An ad in a Saskatchewan newspaper listing biblical citations against homosexuality was ruled a human-rights offense. The man who placed the ad was directed to pay $1,500 each to three gay men who were offended by the text. In the United States, though speech control usually runs afoul of the First Amendment, schools routinely support the pro-gay Day of Silence and ban the Day of Truth, set up by Christians to counter what they believe is organized use of public schools for gay lobbying. A prominent intellectual, talking about gays, complained about "the fascist policing of public discourse in this country by nominal liberals." That was Camille Paglia, who can avoid the speech police because she is brave, candid and lesbian . . . read more

 

The New Gay Times

July 12, 2006,
Brent Bozell III


This Gray Lady slant to the libertine left is no surprise. After all, former-Times ombudsman Daniel Okrent stunned insiders with a column two years ago that publicly admitted the Times was a liberal newspaper, and on social issues, like gays, guns and abortion, "if you think The Times plays it down the middle on any of them, you've been reading the paper with your eyes closed." But the Times isn't just rooting for the homosexual revolution on the outside and inside of the newspaper. It has actively spread the gay gospel by funding the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association and adorning its conventions with recruitment booths. The Times also is a proud corporate sponsor of New York's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, a gay-activist hub, which boasts of being the birthplace of both the radical ACT UP and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. This month, The New York Times has taken another dramatic corporate step toward taking sides in America's culture clash. The newspaper is a "global sponsor" of the seventh "Gay Games," taking place in Chicago from July 15-22. Yes, you read that correctly. The Gay Games. Who would sponsor this stupidity? The New York Times is not alone; it is joined by other "objective" news outlets. The Chicago Sun-Times and WMAQ-TV, the local NBC-owned and operated affiliate, are also "global sponsors." They share the Gay Games' goals, to "foster and augment the self-respect of lesbians and gay men throughout the world and to engender respect and understanding from the nongay world." . . . read more

Warning!

"Google is like the Borg," said Milo Medin, a computer networking expert who was a founder of the 1990s online service @Home, referring to the robotic species on Star Trek that was assembled from millions of individual components. "I know of no other carrier or enterprise that distributes applications on top of their computing resource as effectively as Google."

Would you ever think that billion dollar corporations like Google, looking like cuddly-furry animals that just want to please and pamper you, may be in reality the big bad wolf with large pointed teeth ready to brainwash you, sticking their hands into your wallet while hoping you will more importantly buy into an agenda supported by a political party in Washington, D.C.? Oh my goodness, you're thinking, not another right-wing conspiracy backed by the rich oil companies, right?

No, it's actually to the left, Virginia, supporting the political agenda of the DNC.

Imagine people like John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Cindy Sheehan, and Al Gore knocking on the door of your private room and asking if they can come in? Would you open it or ask, "What do you want?"

Well, Dude, forget it, they are already with you.

So you are welcomed to visit the world’s first full-service conservative Internet broadcast network, Hotair.com, one that puts their ideology out front and doesn't treat you like a dummy.

Two of the most cutting-edge bloggers on the Right have joined Hotair.com in a cyberquest: video editing whiz Bryan Preston and the almighty Allah Pundit. Allah likes to think of us as a little Internet garage band. Only Hotair.com is  playing in three separate home offices and a basement. But you get the idea.  They are here to give you the other side of the story, without trying to entrap you.

"Internet video is booming.  Apple’s iTunes store has sold a gazillion videos since its debut.  YouTube gets more traffic than the New York Times web site.  And politically-oriented video is on the rise:"

1.) Google teamed up with Al Gore’s Current TV Network to provide Google Current
2.) Amazon.com broadcasts Fishbowl featuring left-wing comedian Bill Maher. 
3.)  iTunes offers a discount price for Comedy Central’s liberal Daily Show.
4.) AOL joined with the Huffington Post to provide the Contagious Festival, a collection of conservative-bashing short movies. 

"These efforts have one thing in common: they are all produced by liberals for liberals."

DEMONIZING CONDI BY USA TODAY!- Blog Photoshop user says, "2 points: (1) Any filter in Photoshop would apply to the whole image. The absurd sharpening would bring out her necklines, the stripes in her shirt, her lips, her nostrils, her earrings, etc. So the image was deliberately manipulated around the eyes. (2) Notice how the pupils have been narrowed, like a cat's eyes. Sharpening would not alter the roundness of her pupils, only accentuate them. Another paint or erase tool is required to achieve that effect. Someone did this deliberately." - Drudge - 10/26/05 michellemalkin.com

As Christ could have told you, the difference between a dictatorship and a democracy can be a very thin line.

Copy AP: Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies, and Pinellas Park, Fla., police officers arrest 10-year-old Joshua Heldreth, of Charlotte, N.C., for trespassing on Woodside Hospice property in Pinellas park, Fla. Heldreth was attempting to bring Terri Schiavo a glass of water. Schiavo's feeding tube was removed by court order Friday.

______________

Almost VP, John Edwards, an attorney responsible for some residence in North Carolina complaining that they now had to drive farther to find a medical specialist, cited on a National TV Morning Show that America needed more judges like the ones in Terri's case to help dictate America's social values.He had also been seen waving his hand in the air during the presidential election that if elected, Christopher Reeves would walk again. Praise the Lord?

(You can't make this stuff up.)
