In your “Devouring Screen” post, you briefly mentioned “super smart Asian women” in media.

The reality is that these super smart Asian women cave in when the going gets tough.

Matt Lauer, of the morning show Good Morning America, had a big media fall out with his co-host Ann Curry. He was just being the regular aggressive male, staking out his territory, and not being “nice.” Curry got fired, supposedly at Lauer’s recommendation. She left in tears!!!! She was nothing like that “tough and super smart Asian” persona she had been building.

There is another daytime show The Talk, whose “leader” is an Asian woman - Julie Chen, and the rumor was that her husband, Les Moonves, who is head of  CBS, kept the show going for subsequent seasons, despite its low ratings. The Talk is a take on The View, under that super smart (earned) Jewish woman Barbara Walters, but it is only a copy. I’m surprised people watch it, but it must be a combination of artificial propping and women who have nothing better to do in the afternoons. (Continued)

Some Brutally Frank Prodding from a Reader

 

JOHANNA D. sends her second donation in a week and writes:

I’m so glad you have posted your request for support “front and center.” I think you should keep it there until you reach your goal. Many people may be missing your request altogether.

As for those who have seen it and have not responded, surely the affirmation your blog provides is worth the price of a cup of coffee, a movie (not many of those worth the price of admission), a bottle of wine, a magazine subscription, any number of things we think nothing of subscribing to.

It can’t be easy for you to ask either. I believe this is the third time you have had to do so and that thermometer is moving very slowly. You must have 10,000 readers at least. Surely they can afford a few dollars.

I would hate to have to remove the “TH” from my bookmarks list.

Raised $4,620 towards the $10,000 target.

In India, Some Large Families Are Honored

 

WANDA SHERRATT writes from Ottawa:

 I was so sorry to hear about that Brazilian mother of six, and how she isn’t appreciated even in a Catholic country like Brazil.  To compensate, here’s an amusing story from when my family lived in India in the 90s.  My husband is a diplomat, so we mostly associated with other diplomatic families.  One diplomatic wife told me of taking a trip with her children into Old Delhi one day.  She had three sons, and each of her sons brought along a friend.  And it just happened that they all had rather similar features and hair color, and they also all descended in height rather evenly. So it really looked as if all six boys were hers.

Please Support This Site

 

RELATIVELY few people are willing to support blogs. Those who do have done something. They have done something small to support the right ideas. That’s what is most needed in this world — not big organizations, not expensive political campaigns. Just ideas. Ideas have consequences.

Thank you to readers who have given in my latest fundraising campaign. I greatly appreciate your support.

She Bred Like a “Rabbit”

 

A BRAZILIAN woman, the mother of six children, is quoted at length at Tradition in Action:

Every day, I face the curiosity, the disrespect, the jokes, the whispers and the comments by many people who think that, just because I have six children, they have the right to give their opinion on what is so sacred to me. I have way too many anecdotes. I have been stopped on the street walk and asked if “I did not care about the environment”. I have been laughed at dozens of times when asked if I did not have a TV at home (BTW, no! We do not, Thank God!), if I knew what caused pregnancies, if I did not have a hobby. And all that spoken inconveniently, without modesty, in front of my small children!

Reflections on the March for Life

 

VINCENT CHIARELLO writes about the annual anti-abortion march in Washington, D.C., which takes place every January 22, the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade:

If you were to read a summary of the March for Life in newspapers – usually relegated to the inside pages, and with a serious undercounting of the numbers involved – rarely will you sense the adrenalin that the March generates amongst those who are there as participants. This is particularly interesting for it does not need an expert observer to notice that a large – very large – segment of the Marchers are young, which says something about the tectonic shift in societal group-think that is taking place virtually unnoticed.

Further overlooked is the annual growth in numbers: according to Marchers I spoke to, some of whom have been returning here for the past dozen years, the size of the rally “continues to grow.”  One delegation which has made an appearance over the last several years is that of my parish: St. Athanasius, in Vienna, Virginia.

The Curse of Cursing Women

 

PAUL writes:

Although Huckabee is lame overall as a presidential candidate, he often gets it right such as his criticism of the profanity used by females in his former workplace at Fox News. I never use profanity in the presence of a female using profanity even though my brain screams to hit her when an argument has begun. Men do it to one another to avoid a fistfight, unthinkable with a female. It is a big turnoff for me when a woman curses.

A Case of Military Rape

 

A FORMER U.S. Army prosecutor who once supervised sexual assault cases and complained that he was pressured to expedite them has himself been convicted of sexual assault. Major Erik Burris has been sentenced to 20 years in prison and dismissed from service. Virtually nothing about the case is available to the public.

Donald Trump? You Gotta Be Kidding!

 

TK writes:

I never could take Donald Trump seriously. I figured any man with such a ridiculous haircut deserves nothing but scorn. I can’t imagine anyone so silly looking even having enough gall to BE an egomaniac. Trump has something in common with the president, in that anytime either one is on television or the radio I immediately change the channel or turn the sound off. Certain voices just get to me.

The Nation as Extended Family

A MEMBER OF the Australian group, SydneyTrads, writes:

In his comments about the Union Flag, namely “who would want to be associated with that” given the United Kingdom is a “dead island,” Paul T makes a typical mistake – typical of those who don’t understand what that flag means.

While the grandchildren of the Yankee Revolution may see the Union Flag as a particularly negative symbol, for obvious historical reasons (if regrettable or mistaken), to Anglo patriots the world over the flag represents or symbilises the affinity between all peoples who trace their lineage (whether ethnically or culturally) to the root of Anglospheric civilization.

The Union Flag is, to put it perhaps crudely, a pictorial representation of a family name. It signals origins and the wealth that comes from those origins; and that wealth can be found in the dynamism of Anglospheric nations the globe over. To denounce it is to denounce one’s antecedents; ironically for self styled traditionalists who think the Union Flag is passé or embarrassing, that is an attitude and way of thinking which distinguishes the revolutionary leftist.

The Meaningless Maple Leaf

HENRY McCULLOCH writes:

Thank you for posting my recent comments on Canada.  I notice you illustrated it with today’s Canadian national flag.  That banner has only been the national flag since 1965.  Its adoption was one of the first major steps in stripping Canada of her heritage.  The new Canadian flag is the first visual symbol of Canada’s cultural revolutionaries’ determination to uproot Canada from her own history, and most Canadians are unaware of it.  The Revolution is nothing if not thorough, and stealthy at times.

The former national ensign of Canada (not officially the national flag, but used as such) that the 1965 maple leaf flag superseded was illustrative of Canada’s history and people. (Continued)

The Church Is Not the Church

FROM Traditio:

Newchurch is dying around the world. The only time the mobs will turn out is when a Newpope with a rock-star complex creates a flash crowd, as in January 2015 for the Philippines. Then the mob will sacrilegiously steal the phony “bread” that is no longer the Holy Eucharist to put into their prayer books as a momento [sic] — or feed to their dogs after the “rave” is over. Newchurch is clearly going to the dogs, whatever the fatuous propagandists try to put over on you. Within a decade or two, Newchurch will be as dead as the Protestant Anglican Church, which, now with its Lesbian priestesses and bishopesses, is lucky to count even ten in the pews at its phony services.

DID you know that two slices of pizza, plus a large drink of carbonated chemicals, costs almost ten dollars at many pizzerias? Perhaps you might consider giving up the dollar value of one or two of these life-sustaining lunches to support this blog. I realize that profound discussions on the rotting moral edifice of Western society are not comparable to slices of particleboard slathered with tomato-vinyl compound and molten mozzarella spackling, but please consider sacrificing the one to support the other. Then the next time you feel you are surrounded by lies and a civilizational crisis so big many people don’t even see it, at least you will know you have done something.

By the way, a reader has informed me that he sometimes gets banner ads at the top of this page. This is some kind of bug. These ads are not put there by me. If you have seen the same thing, please let me know so I can get an idea of how extensive the problem is.
