Called It: 'God LOVES Fags! He HATES You!'





I saw this coming. Yes, I really, really did.

After the whole mob melee over Indiana's RFRA and Memories Pizza, I wrote:

Some of us have taken to calling the Left the 'Westboro Tolerance Church', especially after the rabid hatred they exhibited regarding Memories Pizza. Why? Because they act the same way as does the vile, repulsive, and depraved Westboro Baptist Church. Since the Left turns everything upside down and changes words, definitions, history, culture, tradition whenever the 'need' arises, I will not be the least bit surprised when they start screaming 'God Hates Christians'. 
Already they are trying to change Christianity so as to use it to further their agenda. Will anyone be surprised when they start claiming that 'God Hates Christians' once the latter do not fall in line? It's what they do...every. damn. time. 
I, for one, will not be the least bit shocked...and, I'm an atheist.

Some, on both the left and the right, thought that I was being hysterical and such would never happen.  Well, about the only thing I failed to foresee was just how quickly it would begin to happen.  EIGHT. BLOODY. DAYS.

If you were one of the naysayers or naythinkers, you can apologise in the comments (Just kidding).

From Ace:

LoveCrime: Someone Vandalized a Church, Causing $10,000 In Damages, By Painting It With Pro-Gay Messages —Ace 
From IJR, this report from Fox8. 
JAMESTOWN, N.C. -- The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a church was vandalized sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning. 
Bales Memorial Wesleyan Church in Jamestown was spray painted, had flowers torn up, parking signs were ripped up and windows were broken. 
The church sign was also broken and letters removed and the front entrance to the church was egged and sprayed with silly string. 
One spray-painted message on the church door reads, "God loves (expletive)!!! He hates you!" Another said "Gay’s ok!" 
The church bus was also damaged by the suspects keying the hood and pushing a sign through the front grill. 
Click the IJR link -- another church in the same county was also vandalized with pro-gay graffitti. 
This will not get any attention because the media approves of vandalism directed against Christians.


He's absolutely correct.  It won't get any real attention, which is a shame in more ways than one.  Obviously, the alleged vandalism committed in the name of LGBT rights on a Christian place of worship will be suppressed by our 'media' because 'we can't allow the victim mantle be passed onto homophobes' by the Westboro Tolerance Church 'especially since we remember how well ACT-UP's assault of St Patrick's Cathedral worked out the last time.'  Yes, we know that's the reason they will bury this...just like they do - or at least play down - the Islamic connection to assaults and executions on officers in the NYPD and beheadings in Oklahoma.  Here's the thing though: The Methodist Church is probably one of the most accepting of SSM of all of the Christian denominations in America.


Church leaders have embraced same-sex marriage and argued that Christianity has no problem whatsoever with homosexuality....even at the cost of its own survival:


The MSM is so wedded (pun, absolutely intended) to protecting the LGBT community at all costs that it will remain mum when members of the Westboro Tolerance Church frags its own supporters.

Make. No. Mistake. If you are a Christian - even one that supports gay rights - you are part of the problem...because, at the end of the day, the Left's real goal isn't gay rights, per se, but destruction of Christianity and Judaism.

Now, if you are a Muslim, you can get away with anything...because Muslim trumps Gay.  If you think otherwise:




Muslim > gay, 
black > female, 
and everybody > the Jews



By their silence, you shall know them.

Their hate was predicted:



And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.



If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.



So, to my Christian friends I say, if you sacrifice your sincerely-held religious beliefs in order to be loved by others, Jesus would probably say:



You're doing it wrong!


Now, if anyone is interested in my answer to the Question of the Day: Would you attend a gay wedding?

My answer is the same as it is with heterosexual weddings: Must I?

I don't like weddings and only attend those from which I am, unfortunately, unable to excuse myself.

If your feelings are hurt, suck it up, buttercup...and get a cat.


PS: Once again, thank you, Bmore, for making my idea a reality!

Hillary's Horrible Logo: Did She Rip It Off From A Now-Defunct British Grocery Store?

Hillards was a small chain store in the north. It was taken over by Tesco in the late '80s.

IJR via @BennyJohnson:

But we have found the definitive, argument ending inspiration for the Hillary 2016 logo. Are you ready to have your mind blown? 

Are you? 

Meet Hillards, an English grocery store chain founded in 1885.

The UK's first - and only - female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, may have been the daughter of a grocer, but she never needed to rip off the logo of a defunct grocery.

Coming Soon From The 'Westboro Tolerance Church'...





Thank you to the awesomely awesome Bmore for making my idea such a fantastic reality.  I love and adore you, Bmore!

In case you don't get it...

Some of us have taken to calling the Left the 'Westboro Tolerance Church', especially after the rabid hatred they exhibited regarding Memories Pizza. Why? Because they act the same way as does the vile, repulsive, and depraved Westboro Baptist Church. Since the Left turns everything upside down and changes words, definitions, history, culture, tradition whenever the 'need' arises, I will not be the least bit surprised when they start screaming 'God Hates Christians'.

Already they are trying to change Christianity so as to use it to further their agenda.  Will anyone be surprised when they start claiming that 'God Hates Christians' once the latter do not fall in line? It's what they do...every. damn. time.

I, for one, will not be the least bit shocked...and, I'm an atheist.

Celebrate #Voxversity: Former Benetton Kids Become 'The United Monochromes of Vox'




#Voxsplaining, the new word for #Whitesplaining!


Oh, the Huminority!  This photo of Vox's staff looks like it was taken at a 'White Privilege Summer Camp.'  Little known fact: All of them are wearing this...





So, it's all good...especially if they've purchased their offsetting carbon social justice credits!

But shouldn't some of Vox's staff give their jobs to African-Americans for 'purposes of fairness'?

Axe: Somebody's gonna have to whitesplain this for me.

Me: Whitesplain' with a white man's overbite should be a crime against nature.  See: Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias, and Max Blumenthal.

BREAKING: NCIS: Bergdahl Committed Treason





And, just like that...BOOM!!!

Via WeaselZippers.us:

This report comes from a segment on the O’Reilly Factor. While there have been reports indicating this, this is the first indication of a formal report from the military as to treason.
NCIS became involved in investigating Bowe Bergdahl back when he went missing. According to Lt. Col. Tony Schaefer, who had been in contact with two people involved in making the NCIS report, there was clear evidence that Bergdahl was going over to the other side. Among other questionable actions, Bergdahl had made contact with Afghans and that he was trying to offer himself up to the Taliban. NCIS tracked down the Afghans that Bergdahl with whom he had contact, according to Schaefer.
This report is part of a larger report, which is the information behind the misbehavior charge presently against Bergdahl. This NCIS portion was supposedly done in 2009.
So how did the Obama administration not know about this, and if they did, why did they disregard this in their actions in making a trade? Even going so far as to claim that Bergdahl ‘served with distinction’ and having his parents to the Rose Garden? Lt. Col Schaefer says there is no way that the administration would not have known about this report. 

Heckava job, Barry!


UPDATE: Drew McCoy on Twitter wondered why the NCIS would be investigating Bergdahl, who is in the Army.  Good question. I don't know, but then again, I haven't served one millisecond in the military even as a buck private.  As Tony Schaefer was a LT Col, I can only assume that he knows something that we do not.  I understand that the NCIS handles cases involving national security and counter-terrorism, as well as criminal cases and UCMJ violations involving Navy and Marine servicemen.  Is this why? Again, dunno.

For what it's worth, Schaefer has a pretty decent track record on the Bergdahl matter. Obviously, a Lt Col knows the difference between NCIS and CID. Did he misspeak? Maybe. 

Take this report as you deem fit.

I'm sure those high cheekbones are in there...somewhere.

Anyhoo, do we really want another POTUS that has had an 'identity politics crisis'? ...

RSVPing Not To Be RSVPed: I Don't Care About Your Bloody Wedding...And, I Will Not Be Made To.




I. DON'T. CARE. ABOUT. YOUR. BLOODY. WEDDING.


But, I do care about other things.

In recent weeks, several writers have written about what might come next in the Left's current war in furtherance of the LGBT community.  Most, like Ross Douthat at the New York TimesBen Shapiro at Breitbart,  Paula Bolyard at PJMedia, focus on religious institutions.

It's coming to more than churches.

We've seen schools forbid passing out Valentine's Day cards and birthday party invitations because someone might be left out and get their feelings hurt.

We've seen Christian groups kicked off of campuses because someone might find them 'offensive'. Further, we've seen campus Christian groups be forced to accept members of - and even open elections to - other religious and non-religious affiliations...because 'diversity and inclusion'.  We've yet to see LGBT groups forced to open their membership and leadership to Christian heterosexuals.

Now, imagine an office with diverse employees. Some are gay. Some are Christians. Some are just not that into one or the other...or much of anything that makes for talk around the water cooler.  Let's say that one of the gay employees is getting married. S/he delivers invitations to all of her/his colleagues. The wedding comes around and all of the employees come but for the Christians. Does that then turn the office into a 'hostile work environment'? 

The homosexuals will perceive the absences of their Christian colleagues to be driven by 'homophobia', which may or may not be the case. It could be that the Christians 'hate' homosexuals or it might just be that some or all do not believe in gay marriage or, perhaps, they had other things to do that day.  He might insult their beliefs. Maybe, he has made it known that he hates people of faith. Perhaps, he might be just an asshole and their absence has nothing whatsoever to do with his sexual orientation or their beliefs.  Who knows? Who cares? But, should they be 'made to care'? 

Should the employer be forced into a situation where he must determine why they were absent? If he finds that there is some animus or religious objection, should he be forced to take action against the Christians or face a lawsuit by the homosexual citing a hostile work environment - because you just KNOW that, if they fail to attend, the gay person (many anyway) will just assume that it's because of 'homophobia'? He will look at his fellow colleagues differently and see homophobes under the desk and behind every dark corner.

What if someone like me, who used to support gay rights until the Fabulous Fascists went all Gaystapo-like on a pizza parlour in a town of 2,200 in Indiana and has no religious beliefs, decides not to attend? Will I be forced to attend sensitivity training/reeducation camps? I'm not a protected class.  What if I just hate weddings? Don't laugh. Some of us do.

What if an African-American Christian or Muslim isn't so keen on attending a gay colleague's wedding and the latter goes nuts alleging a hostile work environment? Who wins the gold in the Diversity, Tolerance, and Oppressed Olympics?

Will an employer's openness when it comes to allowing fraternisation outside of the office result in the government penalising him if he doesn't not require some sort of participation? Forget 'Participation Trophies'. Anything not prohibited will be mandatory. Or, will the predictable expansion of rules concerning fraternisation to cover any outside relationships of any kind ALSO result in some sort of legal action in the future?

What if a Christian employee wears a small cross around her neck and a fellow colleague is a card-carrying member of Al Gayaeda? Should she be forced to remove it because the Special Snowflakes yells 'Hate!' in a crowded nation full of Christians?

What if someone like me is just not that into your relationship - straight or gay - should I be 'made to care' by the 'Westboro Tolerance Church'? What happens if I tell them to GFT? Should I be punished? Should I be fired if I refuse and just tell you to 'Get a room and leave me alone'?

The Left is making a big mistake if they think that driving down the approval rating of evangelicals, especially by any means necessary, is all that they need to do. Apart from the obvious Muslim issue, they erroneously believe that they can do anything and the public will support them.

I'm an atheist and have been supportive of the gay community for years. Due to the events of the last two weeks, which I see as a culmination of misinformation, lies, propaganda, and fascism, they have lost me. And, I know for a fact that I am far from alone in saying, 'I'm done.'

The Left has become everything that they have accused the Westboro Baptist Church of over the years. They are the new 'Westboro Tolerance Church' and should be shunned by fair-minded, civil people...just like the WBC.

In recent days, I have been reminded about something that I posted years ago.  Without getting into the whole 'Fascism is right-wing! No, it's left-wing!' debate, I think this needs to be said once again after the last few weeks...

"Fascism will return to the United States not as right wing ideology, but almost as a quasi-leftist ideology.
The content of left-wing fascism is heavily based on an elitist vision of the world. At every level of society, it juxtaposes its minoritarianism against majoritarianism. It may take libertarian or authoritarian forms, but it always defends its leadership vision over any populist vision. Some examples are the hip versus the square, the gay versus the straight, the individualistic free soul versus the family-oriented slave, those who believe in the cult of direct action versus the fools who participate in the political process, those who practise nonviolence over those who assert willfulness and violence as measures of human strength and courage, those who have strong affiliations with cults and cultism over the traditional non-believer (a marked departure from the anti-theological vision of most forms of leftist and socialist behaviour), those who argue the case for deviance over mainline participation in the working class or in segments of class society, those who choose underground organisations in preference to established voluntary organisations and, ultimately, those who choose some type of deracinated behaviour over class behaviour and participation.
Historically, communists, like fascists, have had an uncomfortable attraction to both elitism and populism. The theory of vanguards acting in the name of the true interests of the masses presupposes a higher science of society (or in the case of fascism, a biology of society) beyond the reach of ordinary citizens. The superstructure of science, like culture generally, becomes a realm in which elites act in the name of the public. What happens to the notion of the people determining their own history in their own way? Here populism, or pseudo-populism, steps in to fuse formerly antagonistic trends. In some mysterious, inexplicable manner, these mass forces must be shaped or molded. Under communism, in sharp contrast to fascism, the stratification elements in the national culture are deemed unique or uniquely worth salvaging. But, in the anti-ideological climate of the "new world," people (class) and fold (race) blend, becoming the raw materials for fashioning the new society.
Left-wing fascism does not so much as overcome this dilemma of elitism and populism as it seeks to harness both under the rubric of a movement. Having its roots in the 1960s, left-wing fascism views the loose movement, the foco, the force, as expanding the élan and the communist vanguard. It permits a theory of politics without the encumbrance of parties. It allows, even encourages, a culture of elitism and crackpot technocracy while extolling the virtues of a presumed inarticulate mass suffering under inscrutable false consciousness. The mystification and debasement of language displaces the search for clarity of expression and analysis, enabling a minuscule elite to harness the everyday discontent of ordinary living to a grand mission. Left-wing fascism becomes a theory of fault, locating the question of personal failure everywhere and always in an imperial conspiracy of wealth, power or status.
Fascism requires a focal point of hatred behind which to unify. Thus, when fascists advocate anti-Semitism, they are simply using a tactic, one not opposed by communism. It becomes a modality of affixing the climate of a post-Nazi holocaust, a post-Stalinist Gulag, and the monopoly of petroleum wealth by forces historically antagonistic to Jewish ambitions. The new left-wing fascist segments, weak within the nation, can draw great strength from "world forces" deemed favourable to their cause. The unitary character of anti-Semitism draws fascist and communist elements together in a new social climate. Anti-Semitism is essential motor of left-wing fascism. The grand illusion of seeing communism and fascism as polarised opposites (the latter being evil with a few redeeming virtues, the former being good with a few historical blemishes) is the sort of liberal collapse that reduces analysis to nostalgia -- an abiding faith in the unique mission of a communist left that has long ago lost its universal claims to a higher society. This catalogue of polarities, this litany of beliefs, adds up to a lifestyle of left-wing fascism."
 - Irving Louis Horowitz, radical left-wing sociologist, The Decomposition of Sociology, 1929 – 2012, was a radical, left-wing sociologist, Fulbright lecturer, author of more than 25 books and articles, and a Professor of Sociology at Rutgers University
Obviously, Fascism is not solely interested in obliterating Jews, as I have been over repeatedly (here, here, here, among others).
