It’s time for some serious civil(?) disobedience.

“queer eye” meets queer idiots

Interview from National Review: “Douglas Laycock, a law professor at the University of Virginia, has been a longtime supporter of same-sex marriage. What’s made him unusual is that in recent years he’s been trying to make the case to liberals that ‘same-sex marriage and religious liberty can co-exist.’ In 2017 he co-authored an article at Vox with another law professor to argue that Jack Phillips, the Evangelical Christian baker in Colorado at the center of the Masterpiece Cakeshop Supreme Court case, should be allowed to follow his conscience to not bake a cake for a same-sex wedding.

“Laycock has also been a longtime supporter of enacting a federal gay-rights non-discrimination law, but he doesn’t support the Equality Act, a bill just approved by the House of Representatives that would add ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, because it would ‘crush’ conscientious objectors. ‘It goes very far to stamp out religious exemptions,’ Laycock tells National Review in an email. ‘It regulates religious non-profits. And then it says that [the Religious Freedom Restoration Act] does not apply to any claim under the Equality Act. This would be the first time Congress has limited the reach of RFRA. This is not a good-faith attempt to reconcile competing interests. It is an attempt by one side to grab all the disputed territory and to crush the other side.”

“Laycock says that religious schools would probably be viewed as ‘public accommodations’ under the Equality Act even if they refuse all federal funding. They could argue that they are covered under the existing exemption of the Civil Rights Act (section 702), but he observes that they haven’t done well with that argument lately in the lower courts. There have not been that many cases, and the Supreme Court has not spoken; it might be more sympathetic. Schools would still have the ministerial exception, which is constitutional and beyond Congress’s power to repeal.” Nothing is beyond THIS Congress’s power to repeal or impose, except for opposition.

While I don’t think this asinine tyrannical power grab has any chance of becoming law this time, with Donald Trump as President and a Republican majority in the senate, what about next time, since the democrat ass kissers and their fascist queer allies never give up their insatiable lust for the power to impose their warped will on the rest of us. I pose this question: What if Congress and the President passed a law that was so anti liberty, anti American and draconian that most organizations that were subject to it refused to comply, local courts refused to enforce it and police refused to arrest anyone refusing to obey it? Remember, Hillary’s “popular majority” was about equal to the combined population of New York and Los Angeles metro areas, less the number of votes Donald Trump got in those same districts, which was almost none. This misnamed equality act is a proxy for the values of New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington DC to dictate what values the majority of the country will be allowed to express. STOP FOOLING YOURSELVES, THE LGBTQ AGENDA IS NOW ABOUT SILENCING CRITICS, SINCE THEY ACTUALLY HAVE MORE LEGAL RIGHTS THAN ORDINARY CITIZENS.

Do you think I’m overstating? In case you did not follow the link to Vox, here is a snippet: “Many bakers may feel that their responsibility ends when they deliver the cake. But Phillips feels morally responsible for what he creates and helps to celebrate. The result is that Phillips no longer makes wedding cakes for anybody. He has surrendered 40 percent of his business and laid off half his employees. Unless the Supreme Court intervenes, this is a permanent loss of occupation. His alternative was to permanently surrender his conscience. And to what end? To avoid the one-time offense to the same-sex couple of being turned away and being reminded of what they knew anyway: that some Americans still disapprove of their relationship. Their right to be married and to have a wedding cake were never at issue. Many bakers were eager for their business, and when the story broke, the couple promptly accepted an offer of a free wedding cake.

You too can have white privilege. Go to eBay.com and type “whitepriv kit.”

These are some of the items I am listing for sale on eBay for those who are tired of being merely angry and jealous about my white privilege, but are actually willing to spend some hard earned green to get more white.

  • A 1 oz. bottle of the tears I cried yesterday when I read about how my white privilege is responsible for eons of POC oppression.
  • An envelope of my finger and toenail clippings and strands of hair, which the enterprising criminal can leave at their crime scene to implicate me. No hay problema, Esteban, no old white male will ever be arrested. For those into voodoo, you can use those samples to put a curse on me. That won’t improve your whiteness, but might neutralize mine.
  • A prosthetic penis containing my genuine non-purified white urine, or should I be more precise and say, the usual color urine excreted by a white guy. Available in a range of hues for any race. Yuck, why would someone buy such a disgusting item? Just ask any professional athlete, especially Lamar Odom.
  • A large letter E with a magnetic base, in the same font as the entrance sign to Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. You can be known as the person who turned Whitman white. For the illiterate, the kit includes instructions to place the E between the T and the M. This college badly needs a big E. On the college website, they profile two students, “women of color”, who introduce their college experience with the phrase, “I’m a Whittie.” Hey ladies, don’t you mean “whitey?”
  • Now if you find this blog post offensive and insulting, rather than satirical, I direct you to Jim Goad’s rant about white envelopes being the overwhelming color of choice of the USPS. The US Postal Service’s journey toward social justice will begin with one black envelope. Sure, we’ll have to buy white-ink pens so you can see the address, which is problematic in itself, because it subverts the whole “multicultural crayon” narrative, but together we can make it work. And while we’re at it, let’s deconstruct the patriarchal notion that we receive “mail.” Why must we submit and assume the receptive position as “mail” is delivered into our “boxes” and “slots”? Have you ever received “femail”? I think not! Instead of a “mailman” delivering your “mail,” let’s have “personpersons” delivering “person” to us in black envelopes. Then—and only then—will our society be halfway toward sanity.

You better act soon, as quantities of my tears and tissue are limited.

The experience of socialism.

Charles Cooke in National Review on Socialism is Not Democratic: “It has become something of a running joke that, whenever socialism’s history is highlighted, its diehard advocates insist that ‘that wasn’t real socialism.’ This defense is frustrating. But it is also instructive, in that it is an admission that, like perpetual motion, socialism has never been realized in the world. The U.S. Constitution has survived for so long because it was built upon the understanding that man is imperfect and always will be, because it accepts that selfishness is ineradicable and so must be harnessed, because it acknowledges that power corrupts as much in our era as it ever did, and because it makes provisions for the fact that disunity is inevitable in any free society. Capitalism, too, has survived because it is built on truth rather than myths. Socialism, by contrast, has failed each and every time it has been tried because it is predicated upon precisely the opposite — that is, precisely the wrong — assumptions. 

“One would have imagined that, at some point, ‘That wasn’t real socialism . . .’ would have been followed by ‘and real socialism can’t exist because man isn’t perfectible, selfishness is ineradicable, power has needed restraining since the dawn of time, and political unity is a dangerous and undesirable myth.’ Alas, no such recognition has yet been forthcoming. In the 20th century, Communism killed at least 100 million people — by democide, by famine, by central planning, by war — and yet it is still acceptable to say in public that it was a ‘nice idea. ‘ In the post-war period, ‘democratic’ socialism ravaged the economies of the West like a virus and required a counterrevolution to remove, and yet it remains sufficiently seductive to a slice of the public as to present a threat to the American order. Today, the states that have actively rejected socialism are growing fast (India, Poland, the former East Germany) while those that fell prey to the temptation are either moribund (Greece), tyrannies (China), or international pariahs (Cuba and North Korea) — and yet there is still a solipsistic cottage industry dedicated to blaming their successes and failures on decisions made by the United States. The damn thing is ineradicable.” That’s because the most unattractive features of human nature–envy, wishful thinking, self pity, desire for the power to push others around–are ineradicable, at least until our earthly minds and bodies are exchanged for the eternal.

“The Venezuelan president is now a ruthless dictator who has cracked down on free speech, prohibited mass political protests, and confiscated firearms from anyone who has been even remotely critical of him. Thirteen percent of the country’s population has now fled, and those who have remained have been left so degraded by the government’s price controls that they have gone years without toilet paper, meat, and other basic necessities and have in consequence taken to eating zoo animals for sustenance and to scouring garbage bags for supplies. According to the Pharmaceutical Federation of Venezuela, the country is suffering through an 85 percent medicine shortage and a 90 percent shortage of basic medical supplies. The child-mortality rate has increased 140 percent. Ninety percent of Venezuelans now live in poverty. This year, the IMF predicts, inflation will hit 10 million percent. All this in a country with the world’s largest oil reserves — reserves greater than those of the United States by a factor of ten.

Often the impulse to “try” Socialism springs from a misguided desire to “help the poor“, as if exchanging their dignity as contributing members of society for dole dependence helps them. When experience shows that removing incentives to produce and contribute simply spread the misery rather than improve lives, those who still insist socialism is worth trying are, need I repeat myself, driven by envy, wishful thinking, self pity, and desire for the power to push others around. No one is more dangerous than the one who says it’s not so.
