Homosexual Marriage: Building Block of the Nihilist Civilization

2010 August 6

This week, U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker ruled as unconstitutional the definition of legal marriage as exclusively between a man and woman.  He wrote:

The State of California has no interest in differentiating between same-sex and opposite-sex unions.

The significant, logical implication of this statement is that, in the eyes of the State of California, the child has no value.

Laws are the official promotion of that which is considered beneficial to the State, and the forbidding of that which is considered harmful to its citizens.  The values dictating these laws produce a culture, or social environment,  that exudes a specific character.

Western Civilization is rooted in the fundamental conviction that human life is of value, is an objective good, and that the continuity of the human race is an imperative.  Aristotle posited:

The family is the building block of the State. read more…

Judith Miller, the 9-11 Triumphal Mosque, and Discover the Network’s Taxonomic Flaw

2010 August 5

Discover the Networks is an emerging force to be reckoned with in serious political analysis.  Its most significant contribution to public discourse?  A system of classification of the species “americanus  sinestra non-sapiens,” the American Left.  Instead of the ambiguous designation, “Liberal,” David Horowitz and the DTN editorial team have developed precise terminology for the accurate sorting of America’s leftists and their organizations.

In one of his most important articles, Defining the Left, David Horowitz explains the criteria that assigns one to particular slot on the revolutionary spectrum, as well as his motive for developing this system in the first place:

“If you visit the Individuals search page in DiscoverTheNetwork, you will see that we have separated the individuals into five columns, which we identify as “totalitarian radicals,” “anti-American radicals,” “leftists,” “moderate leftists” and “affective leftists.”

“In the conventional political lexicon of today, the term “moderate leftist” is equivalent to “liberal.” We have not used this designation because part of the agenda of DiscoverTheNetwork is to challenge the use of the word “liberal” in this way, a way that obscures the network of the left…in order to escape accountability for the leftist past and in order to more easily advance their radical agendas in the American mainstream.” read more…

Why Is a Jewish Leader Helping to Build a Monument for Helen “Time-For-Ethnic-Cleansing-of-Israel” Thomas?

2010 August 3

On Friday May 27, at the White House Jewish Heritage Celebration, Helen Thomas, the “Dean” of the White House Press Corps, answered a journalist’s request for an opinion on Israel:

“Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine. Remember, these people are occupied and it’s their land…not German and not Poland.”

“So, where should they go?”

“Go home. Poland, Germany.” read more…

It’s Time to Retire the “Hitler’s Pope” Lie

2010 August 2

Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center penned an article entitled The Forgotten Pope Who Challenged Hitler, in which he renews the charges that Pius XII:

“simply did little to stop the Nazis.”

Hier applauds efforts made by Pius XII’s predecessor, Pius XI, in particular, the 1937 public condemnation of National Socialism, Mit Brennender Sorge. read more…

Is Our “Plan B” to Drown in the Ocean of Blood?

2010 July 29

David Horowitz’s chapter Second Thoughts, in part 7 of Radical Son, chronicles his open embracing of conservatism after having lost his faith in Marxism.  Following the publication of his support for President Reagan’s stand against a Communist take-over of Nicaragua, he spoke as the “token conservative” at a rally on the campus of the University of California at Berkley.

“Twenty-five years ago I spoke here as one of the founders of the New Left …tonight I come before you as a man I used to tell myself I would never be; a supporter of President Reagan, a committed opponent of the Communist rule in Nicaragua.”

“I make no apologies for my present position.  It was what I thought was the humanity of the Marxist idea that made me what I was then; it is the inhumanity of what I have seen to be the Marxist reality that has made me what I am now. If my former comrades who support the Sandinista cause were to pause for a moment and then plunge their busy political minds in the human legacy of their activist pasts, they would instantly drown in an ocean of blood.” read more…

Are Leftists Compulsive Liars?

2010 July 26

Aristotle taught that the highest human happiness is the intellectual contemplation of truth.

Aquinas defined truth as:

“The conformity of the mind with what is.”

When one accepts that truth is not something we make up individually, then finding out “what really is” outside of our own opinions and feelings becomes imperative in order to not live a life that is  meaningless. read more…

Religious Liberty: Can I Speak of Eradicating Islam and Still Be a Real American?

2010 July 24

My brilliant fellow-blogger, Calvin Freiburger and NRB Editor, David Swindle had the goodness to read my post, It’s Time to Put the Coffee Down and Eradicate Islam in the West and to give it the honor of their analysis in Eradicating Islam Reconsidered and Calvin, is Islam a Religion or a Political Movement?

While Mr. Swindle answered most of the objections raised by Calvin, I would like to join the round table with one point. read more…

Aquinas on the Shirley Sherrod Saga: Truth is the Conformity of the Mind With What Is

2010 July 22

Following Andrew Breitbart’s publishing of Shirley Sherrod’s now famous speech at the NAACP, Sean Hannity hosted the Big Government founder.

Breitbart:  And what this video shows and what the NAACP affirms in their initial rebuke is not just that Shirley Sherrod, what she said was wrong, but that the audience was laughing and applauding as she described how she maltreated the white farmer.

Hannity: Before she gets to the end of the story which is — which she’s claiming puts context. But there’s a —

Breitbart:  Did the people in the audience know that there was going to be a point of redemption?

Hannity: No.

Breitbart: The point is that the NAACP at a dinner honoring this person is cheering on a person describing — describing a white person as the other.

The NAACP released the tape of the entire talk given by Mrs. Sherrod – leaving us with some profound “take home” lessons. read more…

It’s Time to Put the Coffee Down and Eradicate Islam in the West

2010 July 21

St. Thomas Aquinas defined “peace” as the tranquility of order, tranquillitas ordinis.  He believed that the individual human soul and society find fulfillment when their actions are directed towards a good end in a prioritized manner.  For most, the end, or goal of each day is simply earning a living to care for family and enjoy lives together.

A threat to this tranquility of order must often appear imminent before we are persuaded to divert our efforts to anything else.  This fact of human existence accounts for many of the terrible totalitarian conquests of the last Century.  During the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Communist Revolution, ample forewarnings were everywhere. While no one could be faulted for not extrapolating the precise details of horror that would accompany the regimes, the essence of promised utopias was clear enough to inspire early resistance among those who accepted to face reality, rather than enjoy imperiled order. read more…

It’s Time to Tell the Truth About Killing Women in the Name of Allah, Most Merciful

2010 July 19

There is a serious problem with Anna Clark’s Salon Magazine article, The Truth About Honor Killings – it doesn’t tell the truth about honor killings.  Clark begins:

“Canada is on the verge of adding honor killings to its federal criminal code, affirming the practice of murdering girls and women who supposedly bring dishonor to a family as “barbaric cultural practices” and “heinous abuses.” read more…

Is the Burqa Objectively Immoral?

2010 July 16

At the heart of the debate over the French ban of the burqa is the question of objective morality and government’s duty to promote it through legislation.  Is there a standard of right and wrong that is true, conformed to human nature, and others that are reprehensible, that pervert human beings instead of allowing them to strive for objective goodness?

The Burqa Ban involves both the right of the individual to follow prescriptions imposed by the religion of his or her choice, and the right of the government to maintain a culture  favorable to values it espouses – in this case, maintaining a public sphere in which men and women are at liberty to exist and act without distinctions based on gender.

Amnesty International issued the following statement concerning the French decision to ban the burqa: read more…

Hijab Girl-Power? Islamic Gender Apartheid’s Absurd “Feminism”

2010 July 15

Wonderful news for Civilization is coming, surprisingly enough, from France.  A sweeping victory for President Sarkozy’s efforts to ban the burqa was announced by the Times:

“Calling full face veils ‘a new form of enslavement,’ the lower house of the French parliament voted 335 to 1 to ban any garment which obstructs the face.”

“No one can, in the public space, wear clothing intended to hide the face.”

Last year, the President had the courage to say of the burqa:

“It is a sign of subservience, a sign of debasement. ”

Though he wasn’t quite ready to name the real culprit:

“It is not a religious symbol.”
