Keyboard Humanitarians Hate Israel For Winning

[source]

Israel’s Defense Force recently sent Palestine’s Team Rocket blasting off again, setting off another predictable wave of leftist angst.

I’ve seen a butthurt liberal post on this “visual evidence of Israel’s war crimes” every week since the cease-fire.  I honestly find myself wondering if leftists actually care more about the 2,000 dead Palestinians than the unbelievable atrocities being perpetrated by ISIL in the same region?

LOL JK I DON’T WONDER.

Looks like peace to me.

The following quotes come from the BBC article linked at the top:

In Gaza, families are slowing returning to their homes, but for many they will find them razed to the ground.

It was nice of Israel to at least warn Gazan families before conducting their bombing of the area.

Drone footage reveals the extent of damage to Gaza City caused by the recent conflict with Israeli that lasted 50 days, until a ceasefire was brokered.

Last week… Yuval Steinitz said Israel has “paid a very expensive price… because of the daily barrages of rockets and mortars” from Hamas.

But…  the challenge now for the people of Gaza is rebuilding, but that will not be easy when there is nothing for them to build with.

Blah blah blah, Israel suffered damage and deaths but on a vastly smaller scale.   The Gazans have and will suffer more from this conflict because the Gazans lacked the infrastructure to start such a conflict to begin with.  Maybe they should reconsider supporting Team Rocket in the future?

No, I’m not going to make any apologies for Israel’s actions, neither do I intend to coldly ignore the poor dead Palestinian human shields children.  It’s horrible that innocent lives had to be lost in the fighting.  I will certainly grant that the Jewish nation isn’t known for playing nice or being a reliable ally to the West.  They indulge in activities that I find repugnant and worthy of criticism, particularly their rentseeking and holocaust pity-peddling.

Before you indulge in the Palestinian genocide rhetoric, however, there are some things you should consider.  First, that Israel actually exists in the Middle East; a region soaked in blood throughout all recorded history.  Israel putting down it’s arms wouldn’t stop the deaths, and would very likely result in many more deaths.  Consider that the mean ole’ Jewish state lacks the comfortable separation of the Atlantic Ocean that we enjoy.  We don’t have to worry about being close to a bomb shelter when we’re trolling the internet here in the States.  Consider that Israel is only about 500 miles from the horrors being perpetrated by ISIL, consider that the distance could be considerably less depending on what reports you read re: Golan Heights.

All that to say that maybe you actually can’t afford to play comfortable neoconservative or liberal geopolitics or follow modern rules of engagement when massacres and beheadings are less than a day’s drive away?

Ultimately Israel is for me the canary in the coalmine.  To see how the dominant narrative treats Israel’s reaction to violence in a violent region is to understand why  I find myself leaning libertarian on matters of foreign intervention.  The perverse, post-Christian mind of the modern leftist seems to actually believe that no violence committed by a modern, civilized society can ever be justified.  They want to pretend all bad things can be dispelled with a social network struggle session and an occupy rally or two.

I wonder: how can such a mindset actually succeed against a barbarous, violent people with nothing to lose?

LOL JK, I DON’T WONDER.

Walter E. Williams Commits Political Suicide

Recently a kind old conservative Uncle Tom commenter gone slightly soft in the head made the outrageous observation that while politically speaking, it is acceptable to charge higher health insurance rates to smokers and the obese, one cannot apply that logic to homosexuals. What’s really amazing is that in this world of Tumblr, The Huffington Post, and the Daily Show, an “intellectual” like Williams would have the temerity to speak a single word in such a charged atmosphere without first considering the sorts of irrational witch-hunting guaranteed to result from his naïve comments. Apparently poor ol’ Walter still thinks he lives in a universe where gaggles of rabid Social Justice Warriors aren’t salivating for the slightest opportunity to miss-interpret something and howl triumphantly at the bigotry they’ve uncovered, moments before an entire pack of them descends on the hapless victim. This is what they fucking live for, these people validate much of their existence via pious secular witch-hunting, and the examples of this being played out recently in the mainstream are just too blatant to ignore.

Another clueless black victim

Vicious Anti-Gay Bigot S. Truett Cathy Finally Croaks

Today marks the death of S. Truett Cathy, who founded the infamous “Chick-fil-A” cartel which for decades has served as a sandwich slinging front-group for the most homophobic hate-organizations in existence. Not only did this nefarious “fast food franchise” funnel profits into murdering the gays, their attractively priced and delicious chicken fillet sandwiches also contributed to the Type 2 diabetes epidemic in American blacks, proving that once again racism and homophobia go together like ketchup and mustard in America. In addition to personally dumping wheel barrow loads of money into anti-gay organizations,  sources allege Cathy’s maniacal cackling and penchant for wearing dark hooded robes ultimately served as the inspiration for George Lucas’s “Emperor Palpatine” character from the timeless Star Wars series of films.

The Daily Shoah! Episode 6: Whither Britannia?

On this week’s Daily Shoah we discuss the child sex abuse scandal in Rotherham, England, the desperate scrambling by progressives to preserve their narrative as well as potential consequences for European politics than none of us really know anything about. Finally Morrakiu rounds it out with a look at the real culprits behind it all in this week’s “Merchant Minute.”

Rotherham and the Progressive Narrative

The recent child sex scandal in Rotherham, UK has dealt a serious blow to the progressive, multicultural narrative. Oh, so you mean that importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims from Pakistan, the child rape capital of the world, resulted in child rape and kidnapping in your own country? Gee, who would have ever predicted that? Opening your borders to people from a country where roughly one third of men say that not only have they raped a child, but that they see nothing wrong with having done so, wasn’t a good idea after all it appears. Yeah, oops.

Joyce Thacker, the cold, dead eyes of progress.

11 Ways To Stop Crime That Are Better Than Locks

Can door locks help end home invasion? Yes, that is a real conversation going on this week, thanks to four (let’s be honest, pretty brilliant) black male engineers interested in preventing breaking and entering. The men crafted a new product designed to allow white people to enter secure buildings with a swipe of a tag. If the proper tag is swiped, it lets people in.

It’s important to stress here that I think it’s a really positive step that the product was created by four black men. The last time we heard from black males in the news, they were smashing windows and stealing sneakers because some thug punched a cop and got himself shot.

Police Shooting Missouri

So kudos, gentlemen. Black men should be interested in preventing violence and should be advocates in this space. But while it’s encouraging to see that black men are thinking about this kind of stuff, this product may not be the best strategy.

However well-intentioned, there seems to be an awful lot of resources, time and energy dedicated to telling white people how not to get assaulted, and comparatively little going to preventing black men from assaulting in the first place. This provides white people with a false sense of comfort and the illusion that a product or a precaution can actually solve the problem of violence, which it won’t.

Moreover, the more we depend on white people to prevent violence, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop violence. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send 9mm handguns to dealers across the country.

Whither Skyrim?

larpThe past several weeks have seen harsh debate and a sharp divide among our inner circle.  The issue? Secession.  In particular,  whether or not the United States as a nation is something worth maintaining.  This may come as a surprise to some: the blog’s generally positive attitude regarding the United States is a minority view in our circle.

Dissent with the current trajectory has been bubbling for months: neologisms like “larping” and “Skyrimist” have not helped matters.  Podcast 2 finally led to emotions boiling over.  The result hasn’t been pretty.

Discussions very quickly degenerated, criticisms became personal in nature.  A lot of harsh words were said;  I certainly spoke my fair share.  Several long time members (including the fellow who personally brought me into TRS) have gone so far as to actually sever ties.  I expect things to remain tense for a while.

I don’t expect a blog post to magically mend fences.  That said, I do feel this topic deserves a more even-keeled appraisal than what has been offered on the blog so far.  So in contrast I will begin by presenting four allowances on the issue.  The Secession Concessions, so to speak.
