I don’t understand why folks are giving President Obama and his spokes-minions such a hard time over his insistence that Ahmedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who just happened to be Muslim committing terrorism that had nothing to do with Islam, was just “randomly” picking out folks in Paris to kill when he randomly came upon a grocery that just happened to be Jewish and, coincidentally, to have Jews in it, whom he randomly killed.
Sure, we know Coulibaly called a French TV station during the siege, said he was loyal to the Islamic State that has nothing to do with Islam, and that he picked this kosher market because he was targeting Jews. But you can’t believe everything you hear on TV — just ask Brian Williams.
Come to think of it, the Paris attack seems an awful lot like another random one in 2008. Back then, another group of Pakistani terrorists who just happened to be Muslim, and who belonged to the Lashkar-e-Taiba Islamic terrorist organization that has nothing to do with Islam, went looking for random folks to kill and just happened to stumble on the Nariman House, a Chabad Lubavitch Jewish center which, coincidentally, had Jews in it — Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka, then six months pregnant.
And this is what this mentality eventually leads to...complete, willful insanity, crippling one's ability to deal with physical and biological realities. These people think complex things are simple, while simultaneously making the simplest things far more complicated than they ever needed to be.
As we summit the tipping point between identity politics and culture war, keeping track of the psychosexualethnographic factions claiming to be microagressed is so preoccupying that even George R.R. Martin is probably saying, “Whoa. Whoa. This is getting pretty convoluted.” Most sane people can blissfully ignore the academic debates surrounding this look-at-me-I’m-the-most-special-snowflake factionalism, but there are a few notable exceptions. The current crop of feminists have become particularly shrill, perhaps in proportion to how unrepresentative they are. But they shouldn’t be ignored for one reason in particular: They are trying to ruin sex as we know it.
Where feminism once promised sexual liberation, as a social movement it’s become so birdbrained it no longer even knows what sex is or how two people have it. (It’s a foregone conclusion that the why of sex is lost on them as well.) By now, most men are accustomed to feminists railing against their tools of oppression, but these days if you don’t show due deference to a woman’s penis—well, that’s when all hell breaks loose.
Some explanation here is probably necessary. Last year, I found myself listening to an episode of NPR’s “Tell Me More,” where an assembled group of activists and writers discussed whether the Internet was ruining feminism. The discussion was occasioned by an article in The Nation, “Feminism’s Toxic Twitter Wars,” by Michelle Goldberg. Goldberg’s credentials as a left-leaning feminist weren’t previously in dispute, so the article’s thesis was genuinely shocking: With easy anonymity and the near instantaneous ability to whip up social media mobs, the Internet was pushing feminists to insufferable levels of stridency and infighting. When The Nation, a magazine that for most of its storied history has regarded Communism an unalloyed force for good, denigrates the current state of feminism as “Maoist hazing,” we are truly through the looking glass.
Of course, this is what happens when a society abandons God. That society is committing suicide. It is giving itself over to idiocy, madness and eventual destruction.
There was a moon landing conspiracy, a cover up that occurred, because the evidence of that event was edited out of the official story. Nasa was still reeling from a lawsuit by Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the founder of American Atheists, over the fact that the Apollo 8 crew had read the Genesis creation tale in orbit. So the entire communion event was not broadcast and not mentioned in the media.
It is rarely mentioned to this day. In fact, it has been so erased from the public consciousness, some people refuse to believe it happened at all. The truth remains however, when astronauts first went into space, God was on their mind. One can hardly leave the planet and look out at that vast array without at least contemplating the nature of the Creator.
History is always written by the victors, edited by the politics of the day, and often erased completely from the public consciousness in only one generation. Sometimes I am just astounded by what children are taught to believe and how difficult it is to show them what really happened, not that long ago, in my lifetime actually.
Just some stuff to think about.
