Why Libertarianism Won't (and can't) Save Us

Regular reader Robert sent this article on the intellectual roots of libertarianism:

At its core, libertarianism could be dubbed “right-wing Marxism.” Having accepted the same materialist presuppositions of Marxism, specifically the ideas of economic determinism and the inherent goodness of man (ergo rejecting the Christian concept that mankind is totally depraved), libertarianism believes in nothing more than the concept of radical individualism as the productive means to controlling the path to utopia, rather than through the dictatorship of the proletariat. In other words, it is communism for the bourgeoisie.
That's exactly the problem with libertarians. While writers such as Ayn Rand and Jacob Hornberger do write memorable quotes regarding big government, we have to recall that their obsession with individual liberty ignores the social nature of man and the entire history of political organization. Both Rand and Hornberger approve of open borders on the premise that government should not be empowered to choose who gets to live in a country. Such a stance overlooks the cultural underpinnings of government. To libertarians (and liberals and Neocons), "society" does not exist; only the free individual is real and therfore legitimate.

Here's a recent Charlotte Observer article on an individual who imagines his notions somehow trump historical precedent and modern-day reality:
Thursday, Judge Robert Bell was not smiling.

A few feet away from the judge, murder defendant Deonte Lanier was reading a statement aloud, at first so quickly that the court reporter could not keep pace, then so slowly that he seemed to pause after every other word.

Lanier, accused of first-degree murder in the 2012 death of Johnny Peay, was declaring that because he considered himself a Moorish National, Bell held no authority in this matter, and the charges against him had no meaning. He read on.

“Are you getting close to the end?” Bell asked, which drew snickers from Peay’s assembled loved ones.

Lanier said he was, so the judge allowed him to keep reading. The 25-year-old Charlotte man, with his court-appointed attorney Johneric Emehel standing beside him, praised Allah, described himself as a martyr, and offered his last will and testament for the court record.
This is the Muslim equivalent of the so-called "re-establishment" movement, yet another self-defeating distraction for freedom activists. Both groups claim they are not subject to existing law because they got together with a few friends and declared themselves to be the rightful government. But as long as the existing regime controls the cops and jails and courts, they ARE subject to it, like it or not.

Swedish Foreign Minister claims the country is 'facing collapse' because of the mass influx of refugees

Gee, who could've predicted that throwing open the gates to the entire Third World could have negative results? From The Daily Mail:

The Swedish Foreign Minister has claimed her country is facing collapse due to the mass influx of refugees as the migrant crisis deepens.

Margot Wallstrom has said that Sweden cannot cope with taking in refugees at its current level, without it affecting services.

She says that Stockholm will now have to pressure the European Union in a bid to force other member states to share the burden of those coming from the Middle East, mainly Syria.
The report notes that a majority of Swedes oppose the government's support for this mass invasion. Glad to see there's a little Viking still left in these folks.

U.S. to Begin 'Direct Action on the Ground' in Iraq, Syria

Here are the problems Obama has to confront in his end-of-the-term victory lap: There's a presidential election coming up, and the Republicans are going to argue Democrats are "weak on defense." Worse, there just aren't enough "migrants" from the Middle East pouring into Europe. It's just not fair that Momma Merkel gets all of them to depress German wages, which will make big business happy. Obama has big businesses of his own to please. So it's time to sow more chaos in this tortured region:

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that the U.S. will begin "direct action on the ground" against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria, aiming to intensify pressure on the militants as progress against them remains elusive.

"We won't hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL, or conducting such missions directly whether by strikes from the air or direct action on the ground," Carter said in testimony before the Senate Armed Services committee, using an alternative name for the militant group.
War -- is there any problem it can't solve?

American Flag Shirt ‘Gang Related,’ School District Says

School officials in Yuba Gardens, California, ordered an honor student to stop wearing his shirt featuring a flag often referred to as "Old Gory," a symbol directly associated with extreme violence:

"Our local gang task force, they identify colors, they identify designs, they identify all of the things that we should be aware of," Assistant Superintendent at Marysville Joint Unified School District, Ramiro Carreon said.

In this case, they said that the red star on the top right of the shirt is often associated with the Norteno gang.

"That design has been associated with gangs in the past, and we cannot just turn a blind eye to that," Carreon said.
First the Confederate flag had to go. After all, it was an easy target. Now, the last symbol of traditional America is under fire. Do I laugh or do I cry?

85-year-old jewel thief arrested

She hit a store in Charlotte and got away, but got nabbed when she stole again in Atlanta. From WCNC:

A renowned international jewelry thief, who's accused of stealing a $33,000 ring from SouthPark Mall, was arrested last week in Atlanta.

Last Friday, a loss prevention officer reports observing 85-year-old Doris Payne lifting a pair of $690 earrings from a shelf and placing them in her pocket. She then quickly exited the store towards the entry to Phipps Plaza Mall, according to the police report.

Payne was arrested inside the mall and the stolen earrings were recovered from her pocket, authorities say.
Well, they do say it's important that the elderly remain active...

How Clueless is the Republican Establishment?

This clueless:

The dirty little secret in Republican politics these days is that the longtime pillars of the party — politicians and ex-politicians, major donors and the consultant class — are further removed from the views of the GOP base than at any time in modern memory. They simply do not understand what the heck is happening within and to their party.

John Sununu, a former New Hampshire governor and longtime GOP hand, is one of the few who is willing to admit just how clueless he is about, among other things, the rise of Donald Trump and Ben Carson. Here's what Sununu told the New York Times's Jonathan Martin:

"I have no feeling for the electorate anymore. It is not responding the way it used to. Their priorities are so different that if I tried to analyze it I’d be making it up."

Sununu is far from alone in GOP ranks. Think about how most establishment Republicans saw this race playing out: Jeb Bush gets in, raises a ton of money and blows everyone else out of the water. By this point in the year, most of the consultant class would have predicted that Bush would be solidly in first place in most of the early states and simply polishing his policy résumé for the general-election fight to come. ...

For months and months and months, establishment types have counseled patience. Trump (and others) would go up and would come down, Jeb would be steady. That worked right up until Jeb raised $7 million less than Carson over the past three months and had to cut staff to stay afloat. And, oh yeah, Bush (and almost every other "establishment" candidate) is in single digits in polls in every early state that matters.
The problem, of course, is bad voters. For some mysterious reason, they don't want what their moral and intellectual superiors are selling. GOOD voters would be clamoring for more diversity, more Middle East wars, more government intrusion in their lives, starting with "sensible" gun control laws. Instead, voters want border security, an end to perpetual war, and protection of their traditional rights, especially gun rights.

Clearly, the answer is to import a more pliable electorate and demonize those who object. Fortunately, that project is well under way.

We are watching the death of open frontiers in Europe

Or are we watching the death of Europe itself? Popular reaction to Merkel's "stupefying naivety" for yelling "Y'all come!" to the Muslims and Africans ready to invade is widespread and forceful. From The Telegraph:

In Germany, the anti-immigrant Pegida movement is attracting thousands to its rallies and in France the Front National continues to gain support. Elsewhere, Eurosceptic parties are making inroads. In Portugal, a Syriza-style leftist minority government has taken office opposed to the eurozone’s fiscal rules; and in Poland, the Law and Justice Party is back in power, pledged to oppose any Brussels diktat on migrant quotas. Against this backdrop, which can only darken, Britain has to decide over the next two years whether to remain part of an increasingly unstable organisation.
And The Guardian reports that the anti-immigration party Law and Justice has won a shock victory in Poland. Now if Americans can find their backbones ...

Calhoun and Yale

Guess who said this: "When I was selected as chairman of a committee to pick five outstanding Senators in the history of this country, John C. Calhoun’s name led all the rest, and his painting is now in the Senate reception room."

The answer may surprise you, and you'll want to read the entire article. It's online today at The Abbeville Blog.

Totalitarianism on campus

A recent survey reported college students, by a margin of 51% to 36%, favor speech codes. And at Weslayan (no surprises there), the student government has cut the school's newspaper budget by half for questioning the oh-so-sacred "Black Lives Matter" movement:

In a move they say is aimed at increasing diversity, Wesleyan University's student government has cut more than half of the funding for the school newspaper, leading some to question the body's commitment to free speech and the very diversity it seeks to promote....

The move comes after an outcry in September in response to an editorial the Argus published critical of the Black Lives Matter movement. Outraged by the opinion piece, students circulated a petition calling for the student government to defund the paper.
Just as the old USSR crushed dissent in the name of the liberation of the proletariat, the USSA now hammers down anyone who strays from the ruling ideology of equality. Since we're all equal, ANY differences in income, education, or arrest rates MUST be be result of oppression that the government is "morally obligated" to quash. So, like the USSR's ruling ideology, the USSA's approved thought is used to justify the regime's domestic and foreign policies. Force at home and force abroad stem from the same seemingly benign but inherently brutal doctrine of human interchangeability.

Remember the days when colleges were bastions of free thought and open discussion? They're gone.

Obama Justice Department clears IRS in Tea Party harrassment

A division of the central government has conducted a THOROUGH investigation of another division of the central government accused of targeting conservatives, and can find no wrongdoing:

The Justice Department notified members of Congress on Friday that it is closing its two-year investigation into whether the IRS improperly targeted tea party and other conservative groups.

There will be no charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner or anyone else at the agency, the Justice Department said in a letter.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

Gun rights vs. demographics

Law school professor Adam Winkler, a frequent contributor to liberal sites The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast, says the NRA is fighting a losing battle. The debate over gun ownership in America, says Winkler, does not hinge on facts, ideas, or political theory, but the race of America's majority population - and that's rapidly being transformed:

The core of the NRA’s support comes from white, rural and relatively less educated voters. This demographic is currently influential in politics but clearly on the wane. While the decline of white, rural, less educated Americans is generally well known, less often recognized is what this means for gun legislation.

Polls show that whites tend to favor gun rights over gun control by a significant margin (57 percent to 40 percent). Yet whites, who comprise 63 percent of the population today, won’t be in the majority for long. Racial minorities are soon to be a majority, and they are the nation’s strongest supporters of strict gun laws.

An overwhelming majority of African Americans say that gun control is more important than gun rights (72 percent to 24 percent). While the African American population shows signs of slow growth, other racial minority groups are growing more rapidly — and report even greater support for gun control.
I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry at this piece. Of course, Winkler is right: Gun rights, like all the other aspects of our traditional Western culture, emerged from the historical experience of a particular people. What gets me is that when paleoconservatives argue that it takes a Western population to maintain a Western culture, which includes Western practices regarding individual rights, liberals and their Neocon blood brothers object that Western values are UNIVERSAL. "Why," they exclaim, "America is a proposition nation dedicated to freedom! Noble ideals, not blood, are what unify us!" And so on.

It's clear the left knows we're right. Professor Winkler has unwittingly exposed the leftist charade.

America in Search of a Cause?

Pat Buchanan takes a long, hard look at the pig's breakfast that is American foreign policy. We've said before that DC's incoherent policies reveal a ruling bureaucracy with no purpose whatsoever other than maintaining its own power. And Buchanan suspects the same:

Where is the coherence, the consistency, of U.S. policy in the Middle East that should cause us to draw red lines, and fight if they are crossed?

If our belief in democracy demands the ouster of the dictator Assad in Damascus, how can we ally with the theocratic monarchy in Riyadh, the Sunni king sitting atop a Shiite majority in Bahrain, and the Egyptian general on his throne in Cairo, who took power in a military coup against a democratically elected Muslim government? ...

"When a people is divided within itself about the conduct of its foreign relations, it is unable to agree on the determination of its true interests," wrote Walter Lippmann at the climax of World War II:

"Thus, its course in foreign policy depends, in Hamilton’s words, not on reflection and choice but on accident and force."

America is a nation divided, not only upon the means we should use to attain our ends in the world, but upon the ends themselves.
What coherent policy can a polyglot regime have? What values can a broad expanse of dirt have when it is increasingly dominated by a randomized population of often clashing cultures and beliefs?

The DC Empire is speeding down the same path as the Roman, Austro-Hungarian, and Soviet empires.

Quote of the day

Justice requires us to conform our desires to the order of things, fairness commands the order of things to conform itself to our desires. Justice says: “John is richer than you are and Paul has more authority. But that is as it should be, since John worked harder and Paul is wiser.” Fairness says: “John is richer than you are and Paul has more authority. That’s not fair!” Justice treats equals equally and unequals unequally. Fairness treats everyone equally; or rather, it treats everyone the way the one shouting “Unfairness!” thinks they should be treated. Edward Feser

How to help the poor and the middle class

It's really simple, says Ann Coulter: Stop subsidizing illegitimacy and rewarding dependence. The first step is to raise the value of labor by cutting down on the supply through immigration, both legal and illegal:

All of human experience has already taught us how to fight poverty, and it doesn't involve the words "opportunity," "empowerment" or "zone."

Effective: Don't pay people not to work. The 1996 welfare reform act, with its time limits and work requirements, reduced welfare caseloads by an astronomical 65 percent, as former recipients entered the workforce.

Ineffective: Self-flattering politicians jabbering about how much they care about poverty, then creating behemoth government programs that give corporations tax breaks for pretending to help the poor.

Effective: Stop dumping millions of low-wage workers on the country to drive down wages. America's booming, prosperous middle class arose in the 40-year period after immigration was virtually shut down in 1924 -- until Teddy Kennedy opened the floodgates to the Third World in 1965.

Ineffective: Demanding an endless supply of cheap immigrant labor favored by your corporate donors, subsidized by the long-suffering middle class, while strutting around like you're Martin Luther King.
The biggest obstacle of such a common-sense program is a central government bureaucracy that's more interested in expanding its power than helping its citizens. That's why, as I've said before about DC, solutions aren't the answer; creating new programs is the only possible response to any problem. That's why the ruling class is doing so well and the poor and middle class are suffering.

Haste for migrant deal shows Merkel under strain

Mamma Merkel threw open the doors to Germany and announced that anyone who wanted in could enter. And, boy, enter they did. Now Merkel is desperate to stem the surge of Third-Worlders into her increasingly nervous nation. From the BBC:

Some open borders have been suspended, governments are contemplating talking to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad, long denounced as a brutal dictator, and a deal is being hastily concluded with Turkey, widely held to be an increasingly authoritarian country.

And then what is being debated in Germany - containment camps on its borders and a police union chief urging Germany to build a fence along its border with Austria - are all indicators of the political tension gripping Berlin.

Angela Merkel has called her decision to open Germany's borders to refugees a "historic challenge" - but she is no longer in charge of events.

Her increasingly restive party is muttering she is "without a plan".

So the overture to Turkey - it is born out of the failure of other policies. ...

Even though Turkey is only a couple of weeks away from a sensitive election, Angela Merkel has hurried to Ankara to meet the president and prime minister.

The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, was clear: "an agreement with Turkey makes sense only if it contains the flows of refugees".
So, does this mean there's a downside to open borders? Who knew?

Me want look smart, not stupid

While gloating about various efforts to remove symbols of Confederate heritage around the South, Ed Sebesta speculates about similar future efforts:

Also, each specific type of Confederate symbol removal sets a precedent. Such as the Florida Senate getting rid of the Confederate flag from their seals. It makes people wondering what the seals of their legislative body contain, and what other seals contain.

I expect the effort to slow down because after awhile there won't be as many Confederate symbols to remove and those that remain will be in reactionary areas and places not amenable to change. These remaining Confederate symbols will look very anomalous and the local chamber of commerce's will be very interested in getting rid of them so their local community won't look like idiots.
Yes, the residents of "areas and places" in the South wishing to appear smarter than they really are should remove all of their Confederate symbols. Otherwise, know-it-all Yankees might think the people who live in these "areas and places" are a bunch of idiots who don't know fifth-grade grammar.

Another Neocon windbag slams the South

Victor Davis Hanson displays the muddled mindset that is Neoconservatism in his latest screed at National Review (surprise!). Its supposed target is the sanctuary city, one of the more troubling indicators of the breakdown of both the rule of law and the formerly unifying Western culture in the last days of the DC Empire. The issue of sanctuary cities blazed into the news when an illegal alien invader named Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez gunned down 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, who was vacationing in San Francisco, which is a sanctuary city.

So far, so good. But Hanson cobbles together a mish-mash of a case that cannot logically hold. Sanctuary cities, he claims, have chosen to ignore certain federal laws. That, argues Hanson, makes them just like those bad ol' Southerners:

The most prominent nullificationist was Senator John C. Calhoun, a South Carolina states-rights advocate and the spiritual godfather of sanctuary cities. Calhoun declared, for example, that federal tariffs should not apply to his state.

Apparently, sanctuary cities do not understand the illiberal pedigree of federal nullification, which was at the heart of the Confederate secessionist movement of 1861. In the 1960s, segregationists declared that Supreme Court decisions and integration laws did not apply to their states. In some states, local law enforcement refused to cooperate with federal authorities to integrate schools.
After reading that, I wished they made Purell for the eyes and brain. What a crock. Calhoun, and other supporters of States' Rights, did NOT argue that federal laws did not apply to them; they argued that laws passed by Congress that exceeded the authority DELEGATED under the Tenth Amendment had no validity.

Crazy, anti-Constitutional, secessionist raving, you say? Wrong. In Norton v. Shelby County, the Supreme Court ruled, "An unconstitutional act is not a law. It confers no rights. It imposes no duties. It affords no protection. It creates no office. It is in legal contemplation as inoperative as though it had never been passed. Therefore an unconstitutional act purporting to create an office gives no validity to the acts of a person acting under color of its authority."

In addition to jumping on the anti-Southern bulldozer that's presently trundling down monuments to Southern war dead, Hanson, Yankee apologist that he is, sees the small-government Southern tradition as inherently evil. After all, it's not the Yankee way. That's why big-government Yankees and big-government Neocons are so often found in bed together.

How NOT to respond to police

UPDATE:

Here's a cop keeping his cool while the passenger in the car he pulled goes wacko:

She keeps screeching that she and her husband (?) are not subject to the cop's jurisdiction because they're both "Article Four inhabitants under the Articles of Confederation." So they don't have to have a driver's license, and they can ignore any laws. Sure.

These two are members of the minuscule but VERY vocal "Re-Establishment" movement. They're often confused with the "Sovereign Citizen" groups, but are in fact a different brand of fruitcake. I should know -- when I was the State chair of the North Carolina League of the South, I got to see and hear these characters up close and all too often. They claim to have "re-established" their own government based on their adoption of historical documents. The North Carolina group claimed to be citizens under the authority of the 1776 North Carolina constitution.

The bottom line is that they are just as devious, self-righteous, and demanding as any leftist. They wanted to leach off the League, and demanded -- yes, DEMANDED -- that we change our mission to theirs, and failure to do so would prove that we were accomplices of Satan, or something like that. We had to kick them out and appoint sergeants-at-arms to keep them out. Or was it Orkin we called?

Anyway, the screaming lady in the above video tells you everything you need to know about the "Re-Establishment" people. If they confront you, don't make eye contact, and quietly walk past them.

UPDATE: By the way, I have no idea why the title of the video is "crazy feminist arrested."

Europe pays Turkey to stop flow of immigrants

Even Moma Merkel admits Europe is being swamped by invaders from the Middle East, and joins other leaders to cough up protection money. From The Telegraph:

Turkey will receive up to €3 billion (£2.2 billion) in aid and fast-track access to visas in return for clamping down on the flow of migrants to Europe.

EU leaders offered Ankara a host of long-sought sweeteners in exchange for shutting borders that have let 350,000 people enter Europe since January.

Angela Merkel said the EU had agreed to open a "new chapter" in accession talks to the bloc after decades of delays, adding that the EU was looking at a "ballpark" of €3 billion.
Sitting on the crossroads between Europe and the East has been advantageous at times, and a curse at others. For now, with their hands on the faucet controlling the flow of migrants from failed cultures in the Middle East and Africa into the prosperous West, Turkey is sitting pretty. I just wonder how long the Turks can continue to milk this crisis?

"Lincoln stood in relation to the South very much as Khrushchev did to Hungary." - John William Corrington

Putin Calls U.S. `Weak' on Syria as Russian Airstrikes Continue

All right, Putin's gone too far this time:

Russian President Vladimir Putin continued a war of words with the U.S. over Syria, calling its policy weak and lacking in objectives as his air force carried out fresh bombing raids in support of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

“I don’t really understand how the U.S. can criticize Russia’s actions in Syria if they refuse to have direct dialogue,” Putin told reporters Thursday during a visit to Astana, Kazakhstan. “The basic weakness of the American position is that they don’t have an agenda, though we’re keeping the door open” for high-level discussions with Washington, he said.

Who's he calling "weak"? Doesn't Putin realize the armed forces of the Fabulous States of America wields the most powerful weapon of all time? Yep - diversity! The military of the DC Empire not only has homosexual generals, which makes them more formidable, but has trained its cisgendered troops to appreciate their feminine side:

Yes, Mr. Putin, they're wearing high heels. (Bet that makes him realize what he's up against. If cross-dressing troops don't make Putin respect US power, I don't know what will.)

Hiding from History

It's a tragedy that so many Southerners remain ignorant about their own history. Northern transplant Assimilated Southerner R. E. Smith, Jr. shares his journey of individual enlightenment in the latest post from the Abbeville Blog.

Poll: 75% in U.S. See Widespread Government Corruption

Distrust in the central government is rising:

Three in four Americans (75%) last year perceived corruption as widespread in the country's government. This figure is up from two in three in 2007 (67%) and 2009 (66%).

That Gallup poll isn't an outlier; it only validates other polls revealing a growing chasm between the rulers and the ruled of a doddering empire. Once a regime's subjects no longer see the government as legitimate, that government's days are numbered. The only question is which straw will set the inevitable collapse in motion.

How to Create a Gun-Free America in 5 Easy Steps

Sweden in flames

The multicultural project has failed in Sweden:

It is supposed to be the model multicultural state. But Sweden is facing problems of its own after gangs of immigrants spent a fifth consecutive night rioting in Stockholm.

Officers are battling to keep the capital under control after hundreds of cars were torched, a police station set alight and fire services kept from a major blaze by a stone-throwing mob of youths.

To make matters worse, rioting has now spread to Sweden’s two other major cities, Gothenburg and Malmo.

A new tradition has emerged in multicultural Sweden: The lighting of the Volvo.

Anniston City Council gives Morris Dees absolute power over its personnel

The city of Anniston, Alabama, fired Lt. Josh Doggrell last month after the Southern Poverty Law Center published a hit piece on Doggrell, claiming his membership in the League of the South rendered him ineligible to be a public servant. Now the Anniston City Cowards Council has ceded its authority to hire and fire to the Southern Poverty Law Center:

The policy amendment states an employee could be subject to discipline or even firing if he or she is involved in "conduct, activities, speech, participation or membership of events, associations or groups that advance, promote or condone hateful, violent or invidiously prejudicial actions against individuals or groups based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age or disability ... that impedes the performance of his or her duties or interferes with the operation and efficiency of the city."
Isn't that interesting? Let's see how that standard could be applied to other individuals.

In a 1998 interview with an Australian Internet magazine, Webfronds, Jane Elliott, noted Diversity Dominatrix, informed a group of Whites:

"You’re all sitting here writing in a language [English] that white people didn’t come up with. You’re all sitting here writing on paper that white people didn’t invent. Most of you are wearing clothes made out of cloth that white people didn’t come up with. We stole these ideas from other people. If you’re a Christian, you’re believing in a philosophy that came to us from people of color."

Got that? Whites are parasites who live off the inventions of "people of color." Could that statement be considered "prejudicial" against Whites?

Then there's the Reverend Al Sharpton, who once declared, "White folks was in caves while we was [sic] building empires.... We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it." Gee, that's a slam against both Whites and homosexuals. So if Reverend Al ever applies for a government job in Anniston, Alabama, he's toast. Right?

Then there's this group calling itself Hatewatch. Here's a typical headline from its blog: 'White Americans’ racial delusions lie in their insistence upon remaining ignorant.

Is calling an entire race "ignorant" a statement that promotes prejudice? I'd say so. I wonder if the Southern Poverty Law Center has heard of this "Hatewatch" cult?

Obama to Take Executive Action on Gun Control?

Uh-oh. There I was worried that a future President Hillary would grab guns. Now it appears Obama might beat her to it.

Students warned: Bulging biceps, big guns advance unhealthy masculinity

Guilty Whites have "Uncle Tim" Wise. Now girly men have Jackson Katz. And like Wise, he's raking in the dough with a dog and pony show that's knocking 'em dead on college campuses:

The self-described “anti-sexist activist” and filmmaker said that sexual violence and domestic abuse are men’s issues and that men would “benefit tremendously from having this conversation.”

Katz founded a consulting firm that “provides gender violence prevention and leadership training to institutions in the public and private sectors” and has pioneered the use of bystander training in the U.S. military, according to his website.

At the event, Katz likened racism to sexism, and told students that “people interrupt other people when they make racist comments.” Therefore they should have the same mindset in response to sexist comments, Katz said.
The Cultural Marxist war wagon just keeps rumbling along. And it will continue to crush traditional standards and values under its wheels as long as we let it.

Hillary promises "Executive Action' on gun control

For once, Hillary is telling the truth:

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Monday proposed tighter gun-control measures, including expanded background checks, and suggested that if elected she would use executive powers to achieve her goals.

“I want to push hard to get more sensible restraints,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Today” show. “I want to work with Congress, but I will look at ways as president.”

She called for expanded background checks for firearms sales online and at gun shows. Clinton also called for closing loopholes in federal laws that allow for gun-sale transactions to be completed if the buyer’s background check is not finished within three days.
Obama took action on "legalizing" illegal immigrants because Congress was deadlocked on the issue. And we can count on Hillary to wield similar executive authority on guns, and on a long list of other issues. You can bet on that.

"Free men are not equal. Equal men are not free." Jerry Pournelle

Another shooting, another round of lies

It's almost amusing the way the left and right always point at each other every time there's a mass shooting. But the latest from Charles Johnson's leftist Little Green Footballs site is such a stretch that it's laughable. Here's the headline: Christopher Harper Mercer Had White Supremacist Leaning.

Really? So what's the proof? Here it is: The Guardian found via a public records search that the email address “ironcross45@gmail.com” was associated with a Chris Harper Mercer of Winchester, Oregon. The Anti-Defamation League notes that those groups adopted the Iron Cross, a German military medal, as a hate symbol by superimposing a swastika on the traditional medal.

Yes, that's it. Problem is, there's no telling why Mercer chose that email address. But one thing we do know is that a real "white supremacist" would never identify himself as "Mixed Race."

Expect more Christopher Mercers

Christopher Harper Mercer, the gunman who killed 9 people at the Oregon community college, will not be the last psycho seeking momentary celebrity. Consider Mercer's online profile:

Ethnicity: “Mixed Race.”

Have Kids: “no — do not want kids”

I currently live “with parents”

Religious: “Not Religious”

Music: “Industrial, Punk, Rock”

Groups: “Doesn’t Like Organized Religious; Left-hand Path; Magick and Occult”

That's a sad picture. But you know what? That's supposed to be the ideal these days. No race. No heritage. No commitments. No desire to have a family. Mercer had no human attachments, no loyalties to connect him to others. No wonder he was described by his neighbors as "full of hate" and "unfriendly and bashful."

And, yes, there will be many more like him because of the anti-human world we are creating. In an age that has declared war on human nature, the isolated individual is the new norm. Allegiance to family, church, community, and tradition are despised as different flavors of "discrimination" and "oppression" that tie down the so-called "sovereign individual." Alienation is supposed to be the standard. And nothing is as alienating as being trapped in a randomized collection of unconnected individuals. As sociologist Robert Putnam has observed, "People living in ethnically diverse settings appear to 'hunker down' -- that is, to pull in like a turtle." What did Mercer ever belong to? Nothing. And look what he mutated into.

Mercer believed the modern cult of celebrity offered an escape from all of his frustrations and failures. Mercer once wrote online: "Seems like the more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight." Forcing his way into that limelight was Mercer's desperate and final attempt to connect to an otherwise uncaring and remote world.
