The latest war film, this one based on the autobiographical novel American Sniper by former Navy Seal and sniper team leader Chris Kyle, has rustled a lot of jimmies in the mainstream left, not to mention the tumblrsphere. For those who somehow don’t know about Kyle at this point, he was known for having the highest confirmed kill count of any sniper in U.S. history. Essentially, he was a heterosexual white male from Texas (condemnation enough) who just so happened to also be a violence wielding badass (deplorable).
The last time I can remember so much leftist gnashing of teeth surrounding a movie was in 2004 when Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ graced the silver screen. The flak from the left was palpable. The New Republic called it “pious pornography“, and stating that it was “without any doubt an anti-Semitic movie.” Maureen Dowd chimed in on it’s anti-Semitism, saying it made her want to kick the teeth in of the dirty kikes and wops responsible, as well as drawing strange parallels to George Bush’s supposed homophobia. She even invokes Vatican II’s forgiveness of Le Merchant and suggest the movie “defies not only the scruples of scholars but also the teaching of the Catholic Church.”
Here we have what passes for dialectic in this country. Tradition vs. Progress. Old vs. New. Stupid Faith vs. Smart Faith. I’m not surprised to learn this deep, meaningful debate was covered by Good Morning America. This is the Liberal Cat Lady’s catnip.
…But what does “Christian” mean in this context? Is the Partridge family really taking a stand against our decadent and secular culture? Are they really taking up the cross and following the Lord in a meaningful fashion? Let’s take a look at their blogs:
Umm…. You seem to have forgotten to capitalize “God” there, Veronica. LOL, whoopsie.
It’s been an eventful year and a half for pedophiles and their apologists everywhere. We had Lena Dunham admit to seducing her toddler sister to the applause of many liberal defenders, fans cheered on left-libertarian (aren’t they all?) Brad Spangler after he openly admitted to molesting his own daughter and possessing child porn, and of course some suspicious and respected individuals (hint) have tried to claim that pedophilia is a mere sexual preference. Are these incidents of cheerleading for chimos just isolated anomalies? Well, it would be a shame not to cover a particular under-the-radar story that was transmitted out of several cells of pedophilia mainstreaming. NAMBLA and 8Chan? No, try popular liberal media sources.
Here at TRS, we are always scanning the rhetorical horizons in an effort to keep America safe and prosperous. Language holds the keys to the kingdom, and how we define words often dictates our reactions. This is the primary reason that political correctness is a pox upon our house. Often, this redefining is offensive to the sensibilities of most citizens, and serves only to further the “progressive” ideas of small, deviant sections of the populace.
Away from the prying eyes of America, liberal academia has been busy scheming over one such subversion: the legitimization of pedophilia.
I’ll forego the snarky introduction for this one. Let’s get down to responding to quotes from this author’s “traditional” abandonment of his people and culture.
Westerners don’t “get” Muslims. We’re descended from the barbarian tribes (Anglo-Saxons, Celts, Franks, Visigoths, Vandals, etc) that destroyed the western Roman empire, we have a tendency to reflexively hate and attack that which we don’t understand.
Modern, cosmopolitan Western Civilization is descended from and influenced by barbarians at some point in the past. This means that Westerns are probably not going to be very understanding of a foreign culture and faith that is commanded to submit the world.
No, that’s seriously the premise. OH BOY.
We have only just begun. We will soon discover that the author intends to argue that the best way to combat the modern corruption of the West’s altruism towards outgroups… Is to have more altruism when it comes to a particular outgroup.
A few days before Christmas, over 17,000 Germans gathered in Dresden to sing Christmas carols in a protest against the Islamization of their country.
In November, UKIP won its second seat in Parliament.
And now, thousands have gathered in Paris to protest the shooting of about a dozen satirists by Muslims.
As it turns out, progressivism is not about progress; it is about demanding progressively asinine policies in order to test people’s faith in the doctrine of equality. Women’s suffrage, desegregation, environmentalism, gay marriage, open borders, and now, pick-your-own-gender policy are all part of this need to escalate the absurdity of the demands in order to test the believer’s faith. God asking Abraham to sacrifice his son is really a paltry request compared to progressive mandates.
I’m somewhat entertained by the various digital turds out there from leftish publications trying to condemn Charlie Frog Whatever for being rayciss while also making half hearted attempts at almost condemning the typical Muslims who did the shooting.
Sacha Reingewirtz, 28, president of the French Jewish Student Union, said France is a dangerous place for people who clearly show they are Jewish.
“What the government is doing to protect us is not enough. I refuse to have Jews here living behind walls in fear of their lives,” he said. “We need more than a security plan but an educational plan to fight against stereotypes.”
I will pass over the implications that Sacha only seems interested in murdered and threatened members of the ingroup. I’m sure that isn’t what he/she actually thinks, Judaism being the humanistic and universalist faith that it is (hardy-har).
Maybe Sacha should look into the open borders stance held by so many in his/her own community. Seems to me that had a lot to do with these tragic events.
Maybe, just maybe, not all gentiles are created equal, and French Jews were better off with a white majority than a vaguely-tan plurality?
On Wednesday morning, the office of French magazine Charlie Hebdo was attacked by three masked gunmen, armed with kalashnikovs. Ten Hebdo staffers and two police officers were killed. The gunmen were reported to have screamed “allah akbar” during the attack. Big surprise.
France has raised it’s terror alert to maximum and a search is underway for the culprits.
