This one’s worth revisiting. I’ve yet to find a better presentation on cultural Marxism than this one. Here Bill Lind deconstructs the deconstructionists of the Frankfurt School, explaining their “critical theory” and exposing their efforts to translate economic Marxism into cultural terms. There is a civil war for the soul of the West. It is a cold war for our culture. The Left has defined the rules by which this war will be fought, and it is called political correctness. I don’t believe we will kindly oblige them.

Somebody out there gets it. Via Drudge, excerpts from Pat Buchanan’s explosive new book. My copy is already on order.
“As the faith that gave birth to the West is dying in the West, peoples of European descent from the steppes of Russia to the coast of California have begun to die out, as the Third World treks north to claim the estate. The last decade provided corroboration if not conclusive proof that we are in the Indian Summer of our civilization.”
“America is disintegrating. The centrifugal forces pulling us apart are growing inexorably. What unites us is dissolving. And this is true of Western Civilization….Meanwhile, the state is failing in its most fundamental duties. It is no longer able to defend our borders, balance our budgets, or win our wars.”
Chapter 1: The Passing of a Superpower
“We have accepted today the existence in perpetuity of a permanent underclass of scores of millions who cannot cope and must be carried by society — fed, clothed, housed, tutored, medicated at taxpayer’s expense their entire lives. We have a dependent nation the size of Spain in our independent America. We have a new division in our country, those who pay a double or triple fare, and those who ride forever free.”
Chapter 2. The End of Christian America
If [Christopher] Dawson is correct, the drive to de-Christianize America, to purge Christianity from the public square, public schools and public life, will prove culturally and socially suicidal for the nation.
“The last consequence of a dying Christianity is a dying people. Not one post-Christian nation has a birth rate sufficient to keep it alive….The death of European Christianity means the disappearance of the European tribe, a prospect visible in the demographic statistics of every Western nation.”
Chapter 3. The Crisis of Catholicism
“Half a century on, the disaster is manifest. The robust and confident Church of 1958 no longer exists. Catholic colleges and universities remain Catholic in name only. Parochial schools and high schools are closing as rapidly as they opened in the 1950s. The numbers of nuns, priests and seminarians have fallen dramatically. Mass attendance is a third of what it was. From the former Speaker of the House to the Vice President, Catholic politicians openly support abortion on demand.”
“How can Notre Dame credibly teach that all innocent life is sacred, and then honor a president committed to ensuring that a woman’s right to end the life of her innocent child remains sacrosanct?”
Chapter 4. The End of White America
“[W]hite America is an endangered species. By 2020, whites over 65 will out-number those 17 and under. Deaths will exceed births. The white population will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear.”
“Mexico is moving north. Ethnically, linguistically and culturally, the verdict of 1848 is being over-turned. Will this Mexican nation within a nation advance the goals of the Constitution — to “insure domestic tranquility” and ‘make us a more perfect union’? Or have we imperiled our union?” (Page 134)
Chapter 5. Demographic Winter
“Peoples of European descent are not only in a relative but a real decline. They are aging, dying, disappearing. This is the existential crisis of the West.” (Page 166)
“Not any Iranian weapon of mass destruction but demography is the existential crisis Israel faces….By mid-century…Palestinians west of the Jordan river will out-number Jews 2-1. Add Palestinians in Jordan, it is 3-1.”
“In a startling development of history, Russia’s population has fallen from 148 million in 1991 to 140 million today and is projected to plunge to 116 million by 2050, a loss of 32 million Russians in six decades.”
Chapter 6. Equality Vs. Freedom
“Those who would change society begin by changing the meaning of words. At Howard University, LBJ changed the meaning of equality from the attainable — an end to segregation and a legislated equality of rights for African-Americans — to the impossible: a socialist utopia.”
“Where equality is enthroned, freedom is extinguished. The rise of the egalitarian society means the death of the free society.”
“A time for truth. As most kids do not have the athletic ability to play high school sports, or the musical ability to play in the band, or the verbal ability to excel in debate, not every child has the academic ability to do high school work. No two children are created equal, not even identical twins. The family is the incubator of inequality and God its author.”
Chapter 7. The Diversity Cult
“The non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental quality,” Wattenberg trilled.4 Yet, one wonders: What kind of man looks with transcendental joy to a day when the people among whom he was raised have become a minority in a nation where the majority rules?”
“Historians will look back in stupor at 20th and 21st century Americans who believed the magnificent republic they inherited would be enriched by bringing in scores of millions from the failed states of the Third World.”
Chapter 8: The Triumph Of Tribalism
America’s war of revenge against Japan was a race war. Newsreels, movies, magazines, comic books, headlines treated “Japs” as a repulsive race whose extermination would benefit mankind….Only well after the war was over was it re-branded a war to bring the blessings of democracy to…Japan.
We may deny the existence of ethnonationalism, detest it, condemn it. But this creator and destroyer of empires and nations is a force infinitely more powerful than globalism, for it engages the heart. Men will die for it. Religion, race, culture and tribe are the four horsemen of the coming apocalypse.
Chapter 9. ‘The White Party’
“Through its support of mass immigration, its paralysis in power to prevent 12-20 million illegal aliens from entering and staying, its failure to address the “anchor-baby” issue, the Republican Party has birthed a new electorate that will send it the way of the Whigs.”
Chapter 10: The Long Retreat
“We borrow from Europe to defend Europe. We borrow from the Gulf states to defend the Gulf states. We borrow from Japan to defend Japan. Is it not a symptom of senility to be borrowing from the world so we can defend the world?”
“Are vital U.S. interests more imperiled by what happens in Iraq where were have 50,000 troops, or Afghanistan where we have 100,000, or South Korea where we have 28,000 — or by what is happening on our border with Mexico?…What does it profit America if we save Anbar and lose Arizona?”
Chapter 11: The Last Chance
“We are trying to create a nation that has never before existed, of all the races, tribes, cultures and creeds of Earth, where all are equal. In this utopian drive for the perfect society of our dreams we are killing the real country we inherited — the best and greatest country on earth.”

The cultural marxists are on the move. Let’s take a little peak inside their virulently anti-Christian sec prog minds, shall we?
Teacher penalizes students for saying “bless you”
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — A Northern California teacher says he doesn’t want to hear a common courtesy in his classroom. He’s even lowering students’ grades if they say “bless you” after someone sneezes. Steve Cuckovich says the practice is disrespectful and disruptive. He’s banned saying “bless you” in his high school health class in Vacaville. He even knocked 25 points from one student’s grade for saying the phrase in class. Cuckovich says the policy has nothing to do with religion, but says the phrase is just a outdated practice and disrupts class time. “When you sneezed in the old days, they thought you were dispelling evil spirits out of your body,” Cuckovich said. “So they were saying, ‘God bless you’ for getting rid of evil spirits. But today, I said what you’re doing doesn’t really make any sense anymore.” After parents complained about students losing points for saying “bless you”, Cuckovich says he decided to stop the practice. However, the teacher says he will just find another way to discipline students for saying “bless you” in class.
Notice how the loon tries to explain his reasoning in order to justify himself in a “rational” way. But none of it explains his own deeply visceral response about something so harmless and irrelevant. That alone gives him away.
Some people say Liberalism is a mental disorder. But it’s actually a religion, and all religions seem totally wack to outsiders looking in. They hide their militantly secular religion behind a mantra of “separation of church and state”, but their deepest desire is to remove any mention, nay memory, of God from society altogether. The examples are countless.
Incidents like these illustrate just how deeply the cultural marxists have infiltrated our institutions in their quest to gut our judeo-christian culture from the inside out. Without going into any of the 1st amendment issues raised by this kind of PC run amuck, it further reveals just how interrelated the Gay Agenda (i.e., the normalization of homosexuality) is related to this war on Christianity and traditional values:
School Punishes Boy for Opposing Homosexuality
An honors student in Fort Worth, Texas, was sent to the principal’s office and punished for telling a classmate that he believes homosexuality is wrong. Holly Pope said she was “absolutely stunned” when she received a telephone call from an assistant principal at Western Hills High School informing her that her son, Dakota Ary, had been sent to in-school suspension. “Dakota is a very well-grounded 14-year-old,” she told Fox News Radio noting that her son is an honors student, plays on the football team and is active in his church youth group. “He’s been in church his whole life and he’s been taught to stand up for what he believes.” And that’s what got him in trouble.
Dakota was in a German class at the high school when the conversation shifted to religion and homosexuality in Germany. At some point during the conversation, he turned to a friend and said that he was a Christian and “being a homosexual is wrong.” “It wasn’t directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me,” Dakota told Fox. “I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.”
Dakota was sentenced to one day in-school suspension – and two days of full suspension. His mother was flabbergasted, noting that her son had a spotless record, was an honor student, volunteered at his church and played on the school football team. Officials at the high school did not return calls for comment. However, the Fort Worth Independent School District issued a statement that read:
Krause called the incident “mind blowing” and said the teacher had frequently brought homosexuality into ninth grade classroom discussions. “There has been a history with this teacher in the class regarding homosexual topics,” Krause said. “The teacher had posted a picture of two men kissing on a wall that offended some of the students.” Krause said the picture was posted on the teacher’s “world wall.” “He told the students this is happening all over the world and you need to accept the fact that homosexuality is just part of our culture now,” Krause said.

Modern Liberals are crazy. Straight up. Not bad people mind you, just sick puppies the whole lot of them. When you read this article, keep in mind that as the further and faster racism recedes from our culture, the more DESPERATELY these Sec Progs try to find it. They NEED racism to exist because as racism recedes, so does the modern Liberal’s relevance. They lose a major raison d’etre with racism gone. Not to mention it makes a fairly useful club against their hated enemies on the Right. And where a Lib means to find racism, believe you me, he will find it!
Dress witches in pink and avoid white paper to prevent racism in nuseries, expert says
From the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz to Meg, the good witch from the Meg and Mog children’s books, witches have always dressed in black. But their traditional attire has now come in for criticism from equality experts who claim it could send a negative message to toddlers in nursery and lead to racism.
Instead, teachers should censor the toy box and replace the pointy black hat with a pink one, while dressing fairies, generally resplendent in pale pastels, in darker shades. Another staple of the classroom – white paper – has also been questioned by Anne O’Connor, an early years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity.
Children should be provided with paper other than white to drawn on and paints and crayons should come in “the full range of flesh tones”, reflecting the diversity of the human race, according to the former teacher. Finally, staff should be prepared to be economical with the truth when asked by pupils what their favourite colour is and, in the interests of good race relations, answer “black” or “brown”.
The measures, outlined in a series of guides in Nursery World magazine, are aimed at avoiding racial bias in toddlers as young as two. According to the guides, very young children may begin to express negative and discriminatory views about skin colour and appearance that nursery staff must help them “unlearn”.
If children develop positive associations with dark colours, the greater the likelihood that the attitude will be generalised to people, it says. The advice is based on an “anti-bias” approach to education which developed in the United States as part of multiculturalism.
Ah, there it is, that scourge of Western civilization– multiculturalism. Not surprised to see its fingerprints on this one. Next on the sec prog agenda, outlaw toy witches (might offend the pagans). More secular progressive madness here.

The modern Turkish state was founded on the genocide of three Christian nations. This particular Islamic state is virtually swimming in the blood of the Martyrs. Politically incorrect history, courtesy of CCHQ.
If you’re a fan of Roman history, you’ve heard of Pontus. The Pontic kingdom was the offspring of the ancient Greek wayfarers and explorers who colonized Asia Minor and the southern coast of the Black Sea beginning in 800 B.C. When Pontus was eventually conquered by Rome in 63 B.C., it was folded into the Eastern Roman Empire, whose capital resided in Constantinople. Almost 1,500 years later when this last hellenized bastion of Rome fell to the armies of Islam in 1453, the “Pontic Greeks” remained on the northern coast of what is today known as Turkey. But the Turks could not long abide an older ethnic population in their midst, sharing their country but refusing to assimilate into Islam. So they did to this stateless minority what they did to the Armenians– genocide. The campaign against the Pontic Greeks included massacres, forced deportations and death marches. Pontic villages and towns would be surrounded by Turks and their inhabitants massacred. Over 500,000 Pontians were deported of whom comparatively few survived, with those who were able to escape and survive seeking refuge in neighboring Russia and Greece. The death toll is estimated at between to 350,000 — 450,000 Greek Pontians killed in massacres and death marches. They were the last remnants of a civilization dating back almost three millenia, now dispersed forever.
And the Armenian genocide from 1896 through 1923. Victims: 1.5 million. It was the deliberate and systematic destruction of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire, which took part almost concurrently and in the same historical context as the Assyrian Christian genocide of 1914 — 1920. Stay tuned for more on this later.
The Assyrian Christians were a race of people indigenous to the area of northern Mesopotamia, the descendants of the ancient Assyrian empire which fell around 600 B.C., and among the first of nations to convert to Christianity. They were known to send their missionaries to nations as far flung as China and Japan. Their dogged adherence to Christianity has made them one of Islam’s number one targets for hundreds of years, with their persecution culminating in modern times with their genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Empire’s “Young Turks” in the early 20th century. The Turks committed massacres against, and forced death marches upon, all those Assyrians who refused to convert to Islam. For example, in 1915, 8,000 Ottoman Turkish soldiers surrounded almost 20,000 Assyrian civilians in at least 30 villages and massacred them all. And that was just the beginning. The Assyrian nation lost almost two thirds of it’s population at the hands of the Turk. Total dead are estimated at 750,000. But their story has been all but ignored by our historians, in my opinion because this constitutes politically incorrect history that can’t be pinned on the “Western imperialism” that so consumes our intellectuals of the Academy. Here, however, you will finally hear from the victims and eyewitnesses of this genocide who managed to survive those purges, death marches, and pitched battles. This is history of a people lost to our memory. It is a forgotten genocide.

Spiderman makeover reflects “browning” of America, strikes blow against whitey.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There’s a new web-slinger in town.
New Yorkers take their fictional heroes seriously, so it may come as a shock to some that Peter Parker, the Queens native whose destiny was forever altered by a radioactive/genetically altered spider, has been killed off in the “Ultimates” imprint of Marvel Comics. The Ultimate series is different from Marvel’s standard line, in which Peter Parker is still happily toiling away as everybody’s favorite hard-luck hero.
No, in the Ultimates series, Peter Parker gets killed at the hands of his nemesis the Green Goblin. But, being a comic book series, no hero stays dead for long. While Peter Parker may be gone, a new kid is stepping into the tights: Miles Morales.
Miles Morales is a half-black, half-Hispanic super-powered teen who gets into the hero game after being inspired by Parker’s death.
“He’s younger than Peter Parker, he’s coming from a completely different background, a completely different world view,” writer Brian Michael Bendis told the Associated Press. Bendis, who has been writing Ultimate Spider-Man (and many other) comics for Marvel since 2000, is enthusiastic about the change. “I’m now sitting with a pile of legitimately new Spider-Man stories to tell and that is the best news a writer could have.”
No word on whether the change in ethnicity is going to play a role in casting decisions in upcoming Spider-Man movies or Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.
I’m hispanic and this is embarrassing to me. So I apologize for what these lilly-white Liberals are doing to our beloved comic book characters for the sake of “diversity,” and ostensibly on my behalf, no less. So embarrassing!
It doesn’t sit well with me that characters that we’ve grown up with our whole lives should be killed off, all for the sake of “diversity.” These characters, like professional sports teams, are “public” property and not subject to the whims of politically correct writers or greedy team owners. Or at least they shouldn’t be. If the Minnesota Vikings move to L.A. just to chase that almighty dollah, for example, I swear on everything that’s holy I’m done with the NFL. Finished. Same here: this “Miles Morales” will NEVER be Spiderman. Got that?
To which you respond, the world is a very different place than the one Peter Parker grew up in, you goddamn racist. It’s browner now. Superheroes should therefore reflect this browning of America.
And I totally agree. Art and entertainment should reflect the culture that consumes it. But only if it has developed in a way that’s natural and organic. Not forced on us by these “deciders” with an agenda. If there’s a market for ethnic superheros, then create them and sell them to us. If you have the pulse of the nation, then we’ll buy in. If not, it’ll be just another Liberal flop. So, is there a market for black, latino, and in this case cablanasian superheros? Is there? The answer is decidedly NO! Because we don’t care about their race or their ethnic “experience”, we care about their superhero story, regardless of race.
Ethnic superheros have been around for decades; Mandrake, Blade, Storm, and Spawn, to name just a few. Aren’t they good enough? So why murder our beloved Peter Parker just to morph Spiderman into Tiger Woods?
That fact is, ethnic superheros have never really caught on beyond a niche following. Give me a break, even non-whites don’t give a crap about ethnic superheros. Certainly we aren’t going to follow someone because of his/her ethnicity. I’m hispanic, and I’ve always loved Superman. That’s never going to change. Supes has the best mythology, bar none. He’s unique among the pantheon of superheros. Sure, he’s white, but he’s not even human for crissakes. It’s about his species (again, story), not his race.
BUT, you respond, that’s only because “whiteness” is so normative and dominant in this culture, and we’ve all been so inculcated in that whiteness from the moment we opened our eyes. Essentially, our minds have been “colonized” by whitey to view whiteness as “the norm.” So although I may claim to care only about a hero’s story, it’s really about race; and black, latino, and mulatto superheros don’t really stand a fighting chance out there. This Whiteness “matrix”, therefore, has to be shattered so that we can free our thinking from its hold and give ethnic superheros an even playing field. And that way we can restore “self-esteem” to all our brown brothers and sistas!
And with that response you would reveal the ACTUAL reason Peter Parker had to die. Because no ethnic superhero has ever been able to compete with the greats like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, et al., and because our children grow up loving them above all others, this only perpetuates this white dominance of which you speak. So you have to hijack one of the Greats and turn him into a ghetto rat the likes of Miles Morales. That way you will FORCE us to like an ethnic superhero, and thus help “free” our minds and end the tyranny of “whiteness” forever! Sound about right? lol
And that’s all this is. A blow by the forces of PC against whitey and “The Man.” And who a better villain for this new hero of color than say, oh, those greedy, nasty, hateful Republicans and those raaaaaacist Tea Party “terrorists”! After all, this is about his “experiences”, isn’t it? lol

This is just sad. Teachers in Philly explain how they helped their students cheat in order to, get this, help them!
Philadelphia English teacher explains why she helped students cheat
The revelation that more than 80 Atlanta teachers admitted to cheating on state standardized tests–with one group of elementary teachers even holding a “party” after school to change their pupils’ answers by hand–has rocked the education reform movement. But one question has been left unanswered: Why would a teacher resort to cheating in the first place?
The Notebook blog has found a Philadelphia teacher willing to explain why she helped her 11th-grade English students cheat on the state’s standardized tests. (The blog earlier broke the story that Pennsylvania officials suspected cheating may have occurred in 60 state schools.) The teacher, who remains anonymous in the story, says she began to help her students cheat because she worried their self-esteem was crushed by taking tests they were in no way academically prepared for. If a student asked a question during one of the eight yearly testing periods, she would help him or her find the right answer, or occasionally just point to it on the exam. “I never went to any student who didn’t call me to help them cheat,” said the teacher. “But if somebody asked me a question, I wasn’t willing to say, ‘Just do your best.’ They were my students, and I wanted to be there for them.”
The teacher said administrators bullied teachers about boosting test scores so that the school would make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), creating a constant state of performance anxiety in the classroom. Schools with low scores must improve by a certain amount each year to avoid federal sanctions set forth by the No Child Left Behind law. In some cases, the federal government shuts down schools that fail to boost scores year after year. “The prevailing message was, ‘We have to make AYP this year, or they’re going to shut our school down and you’re all going to lose your jobs.’ At every professional development [session], that’s what we discussed,” the teacher said. She added that many teachers at her school engaged in cheating.
The Atlanta scandal and a USA Today report of potential teacher-sanctioned cheating in 1,600 classrooms across six states has put pressure on the Obama administration for its focus on standardized testing. Teachers in some districts are being paid bonuses for their students’ performance on state tests, and many others have their performance evaluation tied to those scores. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says that the emphasis on tests does not encourage cheating. In fact, he sees it as the only way to ensure schools are adequately teaching their students.
In study after study, American high school kids show far higher levels of “self esteem” than high school kids overseas, yet they score the lowest at every academic level. Gee, I wonder why. On what precisely is this false sense of “self-esteem” based? Certainly not on accomplishment! It seems we now know the answer– grades! Inflated though they may be. The American “self-esteem” movement has completely de-linked self-esteem from any kind of real achievement, and now even some social scientists are admitting that “self-esteem” has crossed into over-confidence. Another PC idea that crashed and burned and wound up in the shit house. And in a godless, secular society where a man’s worth cannot be measured by the transcendental or divine, what exactly is this so-called “self-esteem” supposed to be based on then? If not on accomplishment, then what? What’s left? Why, nothing! The sad truth about the self-esteem movement is that they have actually harmed the cause of our children, not benefited them. Thanks to Liberals, secularism, and their “self esteem movement”, our youth now have little or no reason to have any real self esteem. Plenty of narcissism though.
Here, George Carlin’s take on the BS that is the self-esteem movement:

The multiculti Left is ideologically and, more importantly, emotionally invested in disproving the Islamization of the West. BUT, they say, even assuming the West is going muzzie, so what? It’s just another construct.
May 29, 2011
These facts are “hateful” because they don’t conform to the Liberal orthodoxy of multiculturalism. From the Diversity is Strength™ files: In Oslo all sexual assaults involving rape in the past year have been committed by men of non-western background. This was the conclusion of a police report published today. This means that every single rape assault in the last five years, where the rapist could be identified, he was a man of foreign origin.
Ain’t multiculturalism just grand! The terms “non-Western” and “foreign” in this context means Middle Eastern and Muslim.
Who cares if your women are being raped, at least you have a large selection of ethnic restaurants at which to wine and dine them! What is happening to Scandinavian women reminds me of something in one of CCHQ’s very first posts over a year ago. From The Wilding of Sarah Palin, an old school feminist lamenting the damage feminism has caused to women also has a few choice words for Liberal men:
Like for most feminists, it was a no-brainer for me to become a Democrat. Liberal men, not conservatives, were the ones devoted to women’s issues. They marched at my side in support of abortion rights. They were enthusiastic about women succeeding in the workplace.
As time went on, I had many experiences that should have made me rethink my certainty. But I remained nestled in cognitive dissonance — therapy jargon for not wanting to see what I didn’t want to see.
One clue: the miscreants who were brutalizing me didn’t exactly look Reagan-esque. In middle and high schools, they were minority kids enraged about forced busing. On the streets of New York City and Berkeley, they were derelicts and hoodlums.
Another red flag: while liberal men did indeed hold up those picket signs, they didn’t do anything else to protect me. In fact, their social programs enabled bad behavior and bred chaos in urban America. And when I was accosted by thugs, those leftist men were missing in action.
What else should have tipped me off? Perhaps the fact that so many men in ultra-left Berkeley are sleazebags. Rarely a week goes by that I don’t hear stories from my young female clients about middle-aged men preying on them. With the rationale of moral relativism, these creeps feel they can do anything they please.
Bottom line? The socialist/Leftist/Liberal men of Europe who’ve decided mass Islamic immigration is the way to go CAN’T/WON’T DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT THEIR WOMEN. They are missing in action.
January 18, 2011
Let’s take a look inside Lefty’s mind, shall we? CCHQ has cracked the code. Much is made of President Obama’s apologies and compulsion to kowtow before the world. I personally don’t like it, but I also think perhaps too much is made of it. I don’t agree, for instance, that Obama is bowing before his Chinese or Saudi “masters” when he kowtows to the likes of Hu Jintao and King Fahd. In fact, I now believe the opposite is true.
Here, Obama doesn’t kowtow, but instead practically jams his finger in Harper’s face. I don’t think Obama was intentionally trying to be rude, even though that’s what it looks like. The image is deceiving. But neither is Obama trying to be deferential, and that’s a fact. It’s also key. With Harper, he doesn’t feel he has to be deferential. You see, Harper is a white male, and therefore an equal; while Hu Jintao is a squinty-eyed Chinaman, and “inferior.” Hu belongs to that exalted and romanticized category of lovable fuzzballs known as “the Other.”
Asian women too count as lovable little fuzzballs. White Libs view “the Other” as historical victims of the White Male Global Establishment™ who are in need of special protection and deference. Thus, when a Lib approaches the Other he doesn’t do it as he would a peer member like President Harper. He approaches with an added sense of caution, deference, and sensitivity due to one he perceives as injured. He’s terrified of causing offense to the historically battered and bruised the Other, and he uses every opportunity to reassure the Other that he recognizes and understands his/her special status.
This serves a dual purpose– it both “uplifts” the Other, and, more importantly, the bowing demonstrates to those with the eyes to see just how sensitive and finely tuned is his worldview. Libs take great pride in their perceived understanding of all things culture, and they want others to know. But–as you can see from the pictures above–it’s not a mutual understanding between the two parties because the objects of these self-conscious attempts at “deference” are caught just as flatfooted as the rest of us are. Notice they aren’t bowing to him in return. Rather, it seems to me they’re slightly puzzled and bemused by Obama’s awkward attempts at ritual humility.
The irony in how Obama’s kowtowing has been covered is that–far from bowing to “his masters”–he’s actually bowing to his inferiors. It’s an overt sign of “humility” that lowers him to their level, betraying a subconscious belief that he is a superior, and therefore must go out of his way to demonstrate that he isn’t. It’s a mix of both compassion and condescension. In a word, it’s White Guilt. And White Guilt compels the Liberal to prove he does not see the Other as inferior, the way all those nasty and racist Republican rightwingers do. So he bows, literally and figuratively lowering himself to an equal status. But this only betrays his own sense of superiority, for which he feels guilty. All this has succeeded in accomplishing, therefore, is to reveal (for those who have the eyes to see it) his own ever-so-soft and subtle racism.
But Barack Obama’s black, you say? Well, yes and no. He lives with one foot in each world, not fully a part of either. Based on his upbringing, it’s more accurate to describe him as “Third Culture.” Ideologically speaking, however, he’s a Liberal, and White Guilt has more to do with ideology and worldview than it does race. Also, he’s bowing as the American President, not necessarily as an African-American. As such he’s on a higher tier than the rest of humanity, which means he’s looking down from above. Lowering himself before the Other, therefore, is practically an obligation. It’s an obligation he doesn’t owe to white male presidents like Harper of Canada who he actually does see as an equal.

When the most tolerant people on the planet start to worry about their growing dhimmitude, you know things are reaching a head. Geert Wilders is on trial for saying what these people are thinking, but dare not say out loud. We don’t dare speak our minds because we’re naturally afraid of sounding “racist”, and worse, racists who are wrong. It’s too sensitive an issue. So we watch and wait for things to become more clear before we commit. Or we keep our mouths shut and let others take the heat. But unfortunately by the time it becomes clear enough to make a decision, we’ll be too far gone down this road. It’ll be too late. By then any decision we face making about Muslim immigration will be far, far, more drastic than any we have to make now. And because the more urgent the situation becomes with time, the more drastic the solution it will eventually require, we will never commit to it. Our humanity won’t allow it. We will simply resign ourselves to the inevitable. Thus we are facing, quite literally, the end of Western civilization as we know it.
December 28, 2010
Wow, our Muslim immigrants are so oppressed! Since before the age of refrigeration, a staple of the Spanish diet has been the salted ham. Salt keeps the meat from spoiling for months and perhaps even years. And that’s why the Spaniards have been eating it since time immemorial. But all that will be a thing of the past under the New Caliphate. Below, an inkling of things to come as Europe slowly but surely becomes Islamized.
According to the account of the facts, the teacher was explaining the different climates in a geography class and cited the village of Trevelez due to its cold and dry climate. According to the newspaper account, ”as a story, the teacher told his students that such a climate was conducive to making hams (this refers to the procedure that it’s necessary between the pig is killed and the ham is actually ready to be eaten). Then the student asked the teacher not to speak of hams since it offended him, because he was a Muslim. ”
The teacher told the students that in his classes, he did not consider the religion of their students, but apparently the family did not stay at home when they learned the facts, to the extent that they went to the National Police to file a complaint without speaking in advance with the teacher.
According to ”El Diario de Cádiz“, the teacher “is accused of being the author of an alleged crime of abuse of workers, also alleging racist and xenophobic motives. “ His school colleagues can’t believe what has happened and speak about the impeccable record of teaching reported.

Just when you thought modern Liberalism couldn’t outdo itself. Via Big Hollywood, political correctness at its most absurd. DC Comics should change it’s name to PC comics. Their new “French” superhero is an Algerian immigrant who — get this– prays to Allah. You got it– a Muslim superhero (any Bible-believing superheros in the DC pantheon?) What’s more, this superhero saves France from “neo-nazis” and other assorted whiteys, but not Muslim extremists! lol. Come to think of it, the whole thing makes perfect sense–France will soon be Muslim, and apparently there isn’t a Frenchman with the balls to stand up to this, let alone qualify for superhero status. In other words, DC comics is way ahead of the curve.
Meet the New Batman: An Algerian Muslim Who Saves France from Nazis and Communists
DC Comics recently launched a series called “Batman Incorporated.” Essentially, Bruce Wayne (well-known as Batman’s alter ego to comics fans) is cruising the world setting up a “Batman” for major cities across the globe. These Batman figures, though, will not be vigilantes. They will be sanctioned by whatever local police force is in charge of the area in which the new Batman is operating.
The story reveals to us a cult-like group that is assassinating France’s fringe political figures. The cult’s goal is to cause unrest and riots to be led by the murdered political figure’s followers. This group hypnotizes its members to kill and then to commit suicide so that the cult cannot be discovered.
Batman turns to a man that he helped police arrest earlier in part one. When first encountered the young man was dressed in a skin-tight, black costume and sported a face mask. Batman arrested him when this man tried to involve himself in some rioting. Batman didn’t know the young masked man was actually trying to stop the riot but later learns of his good intentions. Consequently the Dark Knight decides to put this man to work to help stop the cult that is assassinating French political figures and causing riots.
In the course of this story Batman, aka Bruce Wayne, decides that this man should become the French representative of Batman Incorporated. As Wayne styles the man, he’ll be the “French savior.” He ends up calling himself Nightrunner.
So what’s wrong with all this? Only that it is completely absurd and so badly misleads people from any understanding of why riots are really going on in France that it almost qualifies as a crime itself.
You see, DC Comics has decided that the “French savior,” the French Batman is to be a Muslim immigrant. The character’s name is Bilal Asselah and he is an Algerian Sunni Muslim and an immigrant that is physically fit and adept at gymnastic sport Parkour. Apparently Batman couldn’t find any actual Frenchman to be the “French savior.”
The whole situation is a misreading of what ails France. The truth is, neither communist Union members nor “Neo-Nazi” Parties are causing riots in France. Muslims are. Yet DC Comics is absurdly making a Muslim immigrant the “French savior”? This is PCism at its worst. Not only that but it is pretty condescending to France, too. France is a proud nation. Yet DC Comics has made a foreigner the “French savior.” This will not sit well with many Frenchmen, for sure. Nor should it.

War on Christmas? Heavens, no. This is science! Nay, medicine.
Christmas trees ‘make non-Christians feel excluded’
Researchers at Simon Fraser University in Canada, found non-Christians feel less self-assured and have fewer positive feelings if a Christmas tree was in the room. The scientists conducted the study using 77 Christians and 57 non-believers, including Buddhists and Sikhs.
The participants did not know the survey was about Christmas, and were asked to fill in questions about themselves both when a 12-inch Christmas tree was in the room and when it was not. Non-celebrators” reported fewer positive feelings and less self-assurance in the Christmas room. Christians were mostly cheered by the tree.
Christians, however, did report feeling more guilt when a tree was in the room, which, claim the researchers, suggests the holidays can be stressful. Michael Schmitt, a social psychologist behind the research, decided to carry out the study after controversy over whether Christmas should be celebrated in public in case it offends non-Christians.
“We’re not suggesting ‘no Christmas’ or ‘no Christmas displays at all,’ but in contexts where we really do value respecting and including diversity in terms of religion, the safest option is not to have these kinds of displays. “I understand why it might feel threatening to people.
“But I think if people do care about making a whole range of different kinds of people feel included and respected, then we can make some small changes that would go a long way toward creating a more multicultural or inclusive society.” The researchers published their results in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.
Even when it hides behind “science”, Leftism reveals it’s utter illogic. They claim they want both a multicultural and inclusive society. But both are mutually exclusive goals. To be “inclusive”, we must essentially sanitize away all differences lest someone feel “excluded” by another’s culture. But multiculturalism is supposed to be about differences, which means it is BY DEFINITION the opposite of inclusive, as the celebration of one culture automatically excludes those of another culture (just as they claim Christmas does).
So which do you want, Leftards? Multiculturalism? Or “Inclusive.” You cannot have both. Now pull your heads out of your arse and try to make some sense for a change. Or simply admit that your real goal is not “inclusivity” but the eradication of judeo-christian.
Conservatives have another word for “inclusive”, it’s called ASSIMILATION.

A war on Christmas you say? Why, that’s just right wing hate mongering to drum up the votes.
Immigrants aren’t the problem here. It’s the LEFTISTS who hide behind these immigrants to impose their Judeo-christian-free “multicultural” utopia on us. These lilly white Liberals are offended on behalf of the poor and oppressed “other”– in this case Somali immigrants– who generally don’t give a rat’s @ss and wouldn’t even occur to them in their wildest dreams to demand Christmas be banned. It just wouldn’t. Trust me, this is the work of Leftists. I can smell them coming a mile away.
One fewer stop for Santa this year: He’s banned from Head Start classes in St. Peter
Santa Claus, as portrayed by Dennis Jackson, won’t be visiting students at the Head Start classes in St. Peter this year. Jackson has made appearances the past four years at the classes for students who need help preparing for school, but this year officials said, “No, no, no.”
The reason: The classes have many immigrant children who don’t celebrate Christmas, says the Mankato Free Press.
Santa’s a little frosted, the paper says.
It kind of burnt me up,” he said.
The official explanation from Chris Marben, who coordinates regional Head Start programs through Mankato-based Minnesota Valley Action Council: “We have Somali families in the program. We’re respecting the wishes of families in the program.”
She didn’t say how many objections were made, but said more than one would be enough to cancel Santa.
“The simple truth is that southern Minnesota has become a much more culturally diverse society than it was a few decades ago,” she told the paper. “Part of our challenge in Head Start is providing an environment where young children from many different cultures can all feel comfortable.”
Jackson said rather than depriving the rest of the group of the Santa experience, parents who object should take their kids out of the class during the half hour he spends talking to the kids and giving them candy.

War on Christmas? Why, that’s just rightwing crazy talk!
NPR news analyst propagandist, Nina Totenberg, feels that saying the word “Christmas” is something she must apologize for. All those people celebrating the Winter Solstice at that party might have taken offense otherwise. I generally don’t deal in gaffes taken in a vacuum; but this isn’t a gaff, it’s a classic Leftist self-reveal. Ok, I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she personally has no issue with the “C” word herself. I can be generous. But clearly she isn’t supposed to use such hateful and discriminatory language on the air, thus her apology for letting it slip.
I have just one question. Why are we still–and forgive the expression–still funding NPR with our tax dollars? If pro-religion violates the Establishment Clause, then so does anti religion; and boy are they anti religion at NPR.
A war on Christmas you say? What rubbish!
Below more of that “separation of church and state” bunk that Libs can’t and won’t ever find in the Constitution, but use to impose their secular fundamentalism on us anyway. Your Christian culture, it appears, “discriminates” against non-Christians (even if it’s just Christmas schlock). I don’t think multi-culturalism (you know, many cultures) means what they say it means.
Federal Examiners Say Religious Decoration Inappropriate
Federal Reserve examiners come every four years to make sure banks are complying with a long list of regulations. The examiners came to Perkins last week. And the team from Kansas City deemed a Bible verse of the day, crosses on the teller’s counter and buttons that say “Merry Christmas, God With Us.” were inappropriate.
The Bible verse of the day on the bank’s Internet site also had to be taken down.“I don’t think there should be a problem with them displaying whatever religious symbols they want to display,” said Amy Weierman, a Perkins resident.
Specifically, the feds believed, the symbols violated the discouragement clause of Regulation B of the bank regulations. According to the clause, “…the use of words, symbols, models and other forms of communication … express, imply or suggest a discriminatory preference or policy of exclusion. “The feds interpret that to mean, for example, a Jew or Muslim or atheist may be offended and believe they may be discriminated against at this bank. It is an appearance of discrimination.
But customers Eyewitness News 5 talked to said they aren’t buying it.“This is just ridiculous,” said bank customer Jim Nyles. “This whole thing is just ridiculous. We all have regulatory bodies that govern us. But this is too much.”“I think that’s absurd,” said Chelsi Holser, a bank customer. “I don’t agree with it at all. They are taking Christ out of Christmas and life.”The bank is quietly fighting for a clearer interpretation of the clause. Officials have contacted their two U.S. legislators, Rep. Frank Lucas and Sen. Jim Inhofe, and the Oklahoma Bankers Association to help.

A war on Christmas? Whatever would give you such an idea, Christianists?
Apparently, the Red Cross feels Christmas might be offensive to non-Christians. It’s logo? Oh, that’s fine. But Christmas? Why, that’s tantamount to hate speech! And stay tuned for the Leftist self-reveal at the end.
Christmas has been banned by the Red Cross from its 430 fund-raising shops. Staff have been ordered to take down decorations and to remove any other signs of the Christian festival because they could offend Moslems.
The charity’s politically-correct move triggered an avalanche of criticism and mockery last night – from Christians and Moslems. Christine Banks, a volunteer at a Red Cross shop in New Romney, Kent, said: ‘We put up a nativity scene in the window and were told to take it out. It seems we can’t have anything that means Christmas. We’re allowed to have some tinsel but that’s it.
‘When we send cards they have to say season’s greetings or best wishes. They must not be linked directly to Christmas. ‘When we asked we were told it is because we must not upset Moslems.’ Mrs Banks added: ‘ We have been instructed that we can’t say anything about Christmas and we certainly can’t have a Christmas tree.
‘ I think the policy is offensive to Moslems as well as to us. No reasonable person can object to Christians celebrating Christmas. But we are not supposed to show any sign of Christianity at all.’ Labour peer Lord Ahmed, one of the country’s most prominent Moslem politicians, said: ‘It is stupid to think Moslems would be offended.Yesterday officials at the charity’s London HQ confirmed that Christmas is barred from the 430 shops which contributed more than £20million to its income last year. ‘The Red Cross is a neutral organisation and we don’t want to be aligned with any political party or particular philosophy,’ a spokesman said.
Notice it’s lilly WHITE LIBERALS who are offended here, not Muslims. Of course, they’re only trying to show some concern for their little ethnic pets by taking offense on behalf of Muslims and other minorities. That’s mighty white of you, Libs!
Leftists want to ditch Christmas in order to be “neutral”. As if acknowledging (let alone celebrating) Christmas would be “taking sides” with one side vs the other, as if celebrating a religious holiday is some kind of opening salvo in a culture war. Gee, but I thought multiculti was a “celebration” of cultures, is it not? Aren’t we supposed to “celebrate diversity”? You know, like a big happy rainbow family! But instead they give the impression that these cultures, religions and ethnicities are actually engaging in a competition, or a war about which we must all stay “neutral”. Hmmm, this doesn’t sound like a very happy family at all.
So is this what multiculti is, Leftards? A war? A clash of civilizations within our own borders? An ethnic minefield to be carefully navigated across, not celebrated? Your slip is showing, Leftards! And you’re right, it IS a minefield.
And given this fact, THEN WHY PROMOTE MULTI CULTI if it’s so dangerous?
A war on Christmas? Poppycock! What war on Christmas, you paranoid wingnuts! Leftards throw baby Jesus under the bus, and now Santa. This from the Young Man’s Christian Association, mind you (that name, too, will be dropped within the decade, mark my words).
New York City YMCA Gives Santa the BootA politically correct West Village YMCA has fired Ol’ St. Nick in favor of Frosty.
Kids who once thrilled at sitting on Santa’s lap at the 14th Street McBurney YMCA’s wildly popular annual holiday luncheon will now suffer the icy embrace of a talking snowman and his sidekick, an anonymous penguin, at today’s event.
Forget about bringing a list or checking it twice — Frosty doesn’t take gift requests, and doesn’t care if you’re naughty or nice. YMCA officials, who say they are in the midst of “rebranding” the Young Men’s Christian Association to “The Y,” defended their decision.
“It wasn’t replacing; it was transitioning,” said John Rappaport, executive director of the McBurney YMCA. “We realized that change is sometimes good, and that Frosty is a great winter character who would appeal to a broader number of kids.”
The decision to ditch Father Christmas came down from McBurney branch administration, not the Y’s Chicago headquarters. A chilly reception greeted the news that the YMCA — an organization founded to spread Christian values in 1844 — was replacing the Christmas icon with a secular cartoon character.
“Christmas is not about Jack Frost; it’s not about snowmen,” fumed Bill Donohue of the Catholic League. “We’re not talking about some secular organization that has no religious roots. If they can’t celebrate Christmas, then they should check out. What a bunch of cowards.”

Attorney General Eric Holder has filed suit against an Illinois school district that refused to grant three weeks leave to a Moslem teacher to make the Haj pilgrimage to Mecca. Holder claims it’s a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act (you know, “racism”). Stay tuned for CCHQ’s take on this latest multicultural atrocity from the Left.
Muslim teacher sues U.S. school for denying her three weeks leave to make Haj to Mecca
A school district is being sued for not allowing a Muslim teacher to take unpaid leave to make a pilgrimage to Mecca. The Federal Government has brought the case on behalf of Safoorah Khan, claiming that it is a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
It is the duty of every Muslim to join the million of pilgrims at the Hajj in Mecca at least once in their lifetime – and the middle school teacher had hoped to go in 2008. Khan had started at Berkeley School, in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, in 2007 and asked for unpaid leave of three weeks to visit Saudi Arabia.
After the education district twice denied her request, Khan wrote to the board that ‘based on her religious beliefs, she could not justify delaying performing Hajj’. She resigned shortly thereafter, according to the lawsuit filed in federal court.
Federal prosecutors say the leave was unrelated to her professional duties and was not set forth in the contract between the school district and the teachers’ union, thus violating her civil rights. Berkeley School District compelled Khan to choose between her job and her religious beliefs, the lawsuit said.
The government asked the court to order the school district to adopt policies that reasonably accommodate its employees’ religious practices and beliefs, and to reinstate Khan with back pay and also pay her compensatory damages.
In November 2008, Khan filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which found reasonable cause that discrimination had occurred and forwarded the matter to the U.S. Justice Department. The school district would not comment.
Two things that should jump out at you: Barack Obama will spare no effort in kissing up to the Moslem world, and Moslems in the West slowly worming their sharia law into our system. Slowly but surely, the Left is mainstreaming the fringe. That’s what they do. That’s ALL they do.
Mind you, this is the same Eric Holder who refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers for a clear-cut case of voter intimidation back in ’08. The accused are black, the complainants were white– enough said about that. Yet he finds time in his busy schedule to apply the might of the federal government to sue a school district for this. A Leftist, after all, has his priorities!
The next thing that should kick you in the gut is the irony of these Leftists– who spare no effort in subverting Christian religious holidays in our schools, all for the sake of “inclusion” and “separation of church and state”– suing on behalf of a Moslem teacher who wants to travel to Mecca for a religious pilgrimage, a “holy” city where virtually all of this teacher’s students are considered filthy kaffirs/infidels, and are therefore unwelcome. How very “inclusive”, wouldn’t you say! You could get your head chopped off for traveling to Mecca without express permission if you aren’t a Moslem. Nice field trip that would make!
Finally, the length of time this woman is asking for– THREE WEEKS — would normally be considered immensely disruptive to any classroom which then has to settle for a substitute teacher to make due while she’s gone. This apparently matters less than a damn to this “caring” school teacher, and even less to the Eric Holder. Ain’t multiculturalism just grand! Gotta love the Left and politically correct garbage they keep coming up with.
