A Manifesto of Resistance

June 22, 2015

THE Supreme Court has no authority to impose same-sex “marriage” upon Americans, and thus no one is obliged to recognize it.

Br. Alexi Bugnolo writes that the institution of marriage “can no more be changed by a government of men, than the nature of man could be changed by a government of men.”

 

A South African Flag

June 22, 2015

ILANA MERCER writes at her blog:

In the aftermath of the Charleston church massacre, US “news” media have been depicting the Old South African and Rhodesian flags as some kind of Nazi insignia, their display always and everywhere a predictor of a disturbed mind. Dr. Dan Roodt, director of PRAAG, for Afrikaner activism, sends this corrective comment:

“The orange, white and blue flag is based on the original European republican flag: It was first hoisted in 1572, after the first Dutch town called Den Briel was liberated from the Spanish Empire. To this day, and in homage to that flag, most European countries, including the Netherlands, France, Germany, Belgium, Russia, etc., all have tricolor flags. Are they then all “white-supremacist” flags? Read More »

 

Xenophobic Thoughts about College Admissions

June 22, 2015

CAROLINE writes:

This Washington Post article about the recent college admissions hoax involving a Korean math prodigy just illustrates the wide schism between Asian values and that of the (late) West. I find myself agreeing with the Anti-globalist Expatriate’s analysis of Asia. I don’t think it’s good to have so many foreigners at our colleges and high schools. What about our own people? Isn’t a place at an elite (or other) college a limited commodity? Shouldn’t Americans be at American colleges and university? I do declare, when I go to Cornell, I often think that I’m in Seoul.

For one thing, because we allow so many foreign students to come here, there is no incentive for Asians to improve their own schools. For another, I believe they don’t care as much about the quality of American schools, just that they get a diploma from an American/European school. It’s a status symbol in Asia. Read More »

 

The Problem Is Culture, Not Crime

June 22, 2015

ALAN writes:

The depravity of a culture is not measured by the evil things that some people do.  It is measured by how the culture responds to those things.

There is nothing new or surprising about murder.  What is new are the officially-promoted and officially-sanctioned excuses and evasions by which Americans applaud themselves for not reacting properly in response to such crimes. Read More »

 

A True Pope Would Condemn Environmentalism

June 21, 2015

FRANK REGA writes:

Brother Alexis Bugnolo, one of the world’s foremost experts on St. Francis of Assisi and Franciscanism, and editor of the Franciscan Archive, presents a counter-encyclical to the Laudato Si‘ of Pope Francis.

Ostensibly written by a future Pope, its full title is “On the Honor and Glory Due to the Divine Majesty of the Most Holy Trinity – Against the Errors of Environmentalism. It “affirms and declares” that the totality of Laudato Si’ and all its parts are to be considered merely as the personal doctrine of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, and not of the Apostolic See of St. Peter.

Some highlights of the counter-encyclical Read More »

 

The Media’s Twisted Coverage of the Charleston Massacre

June 21, 2015

THE MEDIA is staging a veritable orgy of distortion in response to the terrible massacre in Charleston, S.C. It’s not that the press is lying so much as exaggerating and ignoring anything that conflicts with the sensational, emotional narrative of white supremacy and violence against blacks, creating the distinct impression that violence by white supremacists is a serious national problem and that large numbers of whites hate blacks. It reminds me of an art exhibit I recently saw of African America art at a major museum. Read More »

 

The Buddy Dad

June 21, 2015

SOME Father’s Day reflections on the loss of paternal authority by Marian T. Horvat:

Fearful of appearing authoritative or aloof to their offspring, many young fathers try to be a “good buddy” to their sons and daughters. Playing and joking and making life a game, they teach not only that life is not serious, but that authority is frivolous. The father, instead of showing the serious air of authority a child needs to be calm, stable and secure about his place in life, himself takes on the air of big child, dressing, speaking, inter-acting like a youth, even when he is far from it. He is the Big Boy, his son the Little Boy, and his wife takes on the role of Mother to all.

In this is an inherent disorder. The wife has a difficult time finding the husband to obey and respect. The children begin to think themselves equals to the parents. The harmony and equilibrium of the home are upset, because paternal authority is lacking. We see the disastrous results of this syndrome around us everywhere today.

 

Italians Defend the Family

June 20, 2015

 

Part-PAR-Par8206465-1-1-0

HUNDREDS of thousands of Italians reportedly showed up for a rally in Rome today to protest same-sex unions and the official indoctrination of school children in androgynism. Unlike the Irish, who voted overwhelmingly in favor of same sex “marriage” last month, and similar to the French, who flocked to mass rallies, a significant number of Italians appear to understand that the welfare of children is at stake. They actually seem to get it and to be undeterred by the inevitable accusations of bigotry. From AFP:

Holding aloft banners reading “The family will save the world” and “Let’s defend our children”, a sea of people crammed into the San Giovanni square near the Italian capital’s historic centre to support family values.

The square, which can hold an estimated 300,000 people, was overflowing with the young, elderly and parents with toddlers, an AFP photographer said, with many more demonstrators spilling into nearby streets. Organisers for their part said one million people were taking part. Italian police never provide figures for demos.

“In my children’s schools they are talking about families made up of two fathers or two mothers, without asking parents’ permission,” said 41-year old doctor Giuseppe Ripa, adding: “It’s dangerous and wrong.”

Fellow protester Piero Uroda, a 78-year-old pharmacist, said it was “not honest to say these things to the very young, it’s not like they are students who can debate these ideas.”

“I don’t want gay marriage or gay adoption, the natural family is like ours,” he said, pointing to his relatives gathered around.

 

The Enervated Eloi

June 20, 2015

AN excerpt from the unpublished book, America Erased, by Lawrence Auster:

What are the practical results of [the] pervasive nihilism on white, middle-class Americans? What does the human product of a nihilist culture look like? As white America has progressively lost its belief in God, in objective truth and morality, in law, in nationhood and in race, whites have acquired an increasingly bland, complacent, pacific aspect. This seems to be true not only in the United States but in the white West as a whole.

One is especially struck by this ennervated quality in contemporary whites when observing them at their leisure, on Sundays, or on their innumerable vacations, or when they are shopping. In the all-white or predominantly white pockets of society, the environment is orderly and peaceful and aesthetically attractive, but something vital is missing. Read More »

 

Trifkovic on the Muslim Invasion of Europe

June 19, 2015

SRDJA TRFKOVIC writes at Chronicles that the great preponderance of the hundreds of thousands of “asylum seekers” arriving in Europe are Muslim:

The Third Muslim Invasion of Europe is entering its mature stage by sea, just like the previous two onslaughts.  The difference is threefold.  The invaders are not armed warriors but “asylum seekers.”  They can count on a massive infrastructure of Islamic centers and coreligionists to welcome them.  And there is no political will to resist them.

Europe’s southern maritime frontier is as porous as America’s on the Rio Grande.  Last year 220,000 African and Asian illegal immigrants landed on northern Mediterranean shores.  None have been sent back.  E.U. border-agency chief Fabrice Leggeri says that up to a million are currently poised to leave Libya alone.  It is an eminently Muslim invasion: African Christians making the crossing, a minority, are routinely thrown overboard by their jihadist-minded fellow passengers.

D.C. Pride Fest — Brought to You By Marriott

June 18, 2015

JD writes:

I went with friends to a Washington Nationals home game last night. My first in years. It was boring and mercifully, it rained out.

My buddy’s girlfriend pointed out to him and me, that in case we were wondering, Washington D.C.’s “Capital Pride” Parade was Saturday, and that is why there was a huge number of homosexuals at the game. I couldn’t help but notice and was wondering to myself if this was normal and if I would ever attend another game.

Practically in the same breath, after she said that, and with a great big proud smile backing up her aggressive glee, she said: “I think it’s great!” Read More »

 

The Model Minority: Bogus Buddhist Edition

June 18, 2015

ACCORDING TO The New York Post, “fake Buddhist monks are the new squeegee men of New York.”

The masquerading monks are largely Chinese nationals who return to Flushing flophouses with their day’s earnings, sometimes changing out of their robes on the subway, before gathering at a local restaurant for a meal that usually includes alcohol, according to one observer.

This mendicant monk, above, “reincarnated himself as a hipster.” New Yorkers have a real soft spot for Zen and prayer beads. Read More »

 

The Charleston Massacre

June 18, 2015

IF the word “racist” was not so dishonestly used, it would aptly apply to the terrible massacre of nine people in a South Carolina African Methodist church by a white 21-year-old gunman, who appeared to have killed his victims for no other reason than that they were black. The police are saying it may be a hate crime. That is another Orwellian abuse of language. Every massacre is a hate crime. Read More »

 

A Review of Ann Coulter on Immigration

June 18, 2015

AT American Renaissance, Jared Taylor reviews Ann Coulter’s latest book on immigration. He calls it “a monument to common sense.”  A memorable quote from the book:

“It’s a sweet deal the elites have: They get to have cheap nannies and lawn boys in the whitest towns in America–and feel morally superior at the same time.” There is plenty of hypocrisy: “The reason we can’t use immigration to bring in the best people is because our best people don’t want immigrants competing with their kids. They want immigrants competing with their landscaper’s kids.” Read More »
