You Can Jihad. We Can Help.

Manhattan

My unique angle on the Halloween Day outbreak of peacefulness from the Religion of Pieces in Lower Manhattan, in pictures.

Disclaimer: Suggestive of tragic irony, not an accusation of conspiracy. For both tribal and business reasons, Arthur Blank is as open borders as anyone.

These RoPers are Uzbek, and the Tsarnaev Bomb Bros were/are Chechen, so we might have to worry most about the marginally Caucasian Muslims from the Asian continent and the Stans going forward.

A really big problem going forward for ISIS and affiliated Jihadist movements is that the Western media won’t give them their due credit for the terrorism they commit, because the media are so scared of getting white people/goyim/cishets/deplorables into the habit of noticing patterns.  Yabba Dabba Doo from Uzbekistan here has to be really pissed off that he went through all this on behalf of ISIS and Islam in general, yet Jeff Bezos’s and Carlos Slim’s quaint little weblogs did nothing but scream “truck accident” and “suicide by cop” and “Allah u Akbar doesn’t mean what you think it means” for hours and days.  This is the kind of thing that AQ/ISIS started getting frustrated with starting in the summer of last current year, when, after the Pulse Nightclub shoot-em-up in Orlando, the media tried to cover up Omar Nutbar’s Muslimness by constantly harping on the gayness of the victims.  AQ/ISIS operatives wrote in one of their propaganda rags in the Orlando aftermath that it screwed up by picking politically sensitive victims, so they made it a point of order, going forward from that point in time, to try to mow down people who have no diversity Pokemon Points, or are at the rock bottom of the progressivetard stack.  So far, that doesn’t seem to be working, either.  I’d like to think that the media are colluding to do us a favor, in that if they collude to refuse to give AQ/ISIS/Islam the credit for the terrorism they do, then this will frustrate them so much that they’ll give up on terrorism, similar to my “don’t name the nutbars” policy in this medium.  But I’m probably being too clever by half with that theory.

Half a Millennium

14 11 2017

Wittenberg, Germany

Because I’m a Lutheran, LCMS in particular, I’ve been aware that the current year is the 500th anniversary of the 95 Theses, because the Church(es) all year have been making sure we know about it.  Strangely, ELCA has been rather mum about it, mainly because nowadays ELCA is leftist as just about any Christian denomination, and as such, they’re trying to put daylight between themselves and Martin Luther’s none too kind attitude about parentheticals in his late life.  That said, get ready for Martin Luther to be Robert E. Lee-ized.

However, I was not able to get back enough of my cognitive function on the observed day of the anniversary itself, October 31, (missed it by that much), such that I was really able to appreciate the significance of the day.  I should add that October 31, 1517 is observed as 95 Theses Day, but the switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar didn’t happen until later that century.  When the switch was ordained, ten days were skipped over, meaning that the day that was supposed to be October 5, 1582 became October 15, 1582.  This means that October 31, 1517 on the Julian is probably November 10, 1517 on the Gregorian, give or take.

Before I leave this be, I want to address the “it never happened” historical revisionist skepticism.  Their theory is that Martin Luther never nailed or even affixed any manifesto like this to the doors of the Wittenberg church where he was based, that he made the whole thing up about 30 years after the fact and after the Protestant Reformation gained serious political steam and became a thing in order to puff up his own legend.  What I think is possible is that he never “nailed” the 95 Theses to the doors with nails, if only because in those days, nails were expensive, and not a one was to be wasted.  But I do think that he actually did affix the Theses to the door, probably with glue, and did it on the night before All Saints’ Day, meaning October 31, 1517 (again, remember, Julian calendar), and where’s why:  Affixing clerical-professorial statements to church house doors was the way that the clerical-professorial class communicated with each other in those days, and they wrote their statements in Latin for that reason, because it was for the eggheads, not the common people.  Luther never really wanted to split away from the Church, he just wanted some massive major league internal reforms.  Which explains the Theses being originally written in Latin, and being affixed to the doors before ASD, because in those days, ASD was a BFD, way bigger than it is even among modern Catholics.  An official professorial statement that dramatic officially posted on the eve of ASD would have gotten paid attention to big time by the really important clerical officials of the day, just because of the importance of ASD.

Other anniversaries during my incapacity were:  The 40th anniversary of the plane crash that took out most of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the 100th anniversary of the Bolsheviks taking control of Russia. You know how that goes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bolsheviks, Martin Luther, one of these things is not like the others.





SCOTUS Finds For Trinity Lutheran

26 06 2017

Columbia

I wrote about it back in April, and today, SCOTUS saw it my way.

The way the majority opinion was written, this is not a ruling that will have a long shadow.  Which means it won’t nail down a specific paradigm on these kinds of establishmentarian-funding questions that exist in the margins of church-state matters.  It is only a decision on this particular case in this particular time in this particular jurisdiction in these particular circumstances.

The Islamophobic backlash everyone worries about but never seems to materialize has finally showed up.





How to Be Politically Correct

One current year ago today.

The better title should be:

How to Honor the 2016 Orlando Nightclub Shooting Victims While Remaining Politically Correct.

After all, we have a narrative to peddle, and a coalition of the fringes to maintain.





The Lyda Krewson of Britain

5 06 2017

London

Theresa May.

What do I mean by that?

When problematic minority groups get in an especially peaceful mood, they, along with many others, point the fingers at distractions and diversions, so we don’t think about the problematic minority groups.

When it’s black crime in St. Louis, Lyda bawks about the cops not being paid enough and century-old statues.

Meanwhile, when it’s the Religion of Peace in London and Manchester, Theresa May blames the internet.

And she wonders why she and her party are tanking in the polls.  Oh yeah, that’s coming up soon, and that cute little gamble of hers (“April May June”) could very well blow up in her face just like a Religion of Peace bookbag.

Anyway, back to the point, we know May is right, because the internet helped the spread of the Umayyad Caliphate, and later the Ottoman Turks.
