Eyes Front, Pencils Ready

Since I’ve been busy dealing with the first two weeks of the school year and haven’t posted in awhile, I thought I would re-emerge with a quick lesson on the fundamentals of logic.

Pay attention kids; there might be a quiz.

On Tuesday, in a speech to German university professors, The Pope quoted a manuscript written in 1391 by Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus in which he says:

“Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

The Muslim community is outraged that the Pope would quote something that was written 615 years ago that would dare to characterize followers of Islam as “barbaric” and “uncivilized” so they respond by:

1) Attacking one Anglican, two Greek Orthodox and two Catholic Churches in the West Bank and Gaza using gunfire, firebombs and lighter fluid.
2) Shooting a nun to death in Somalia.
3) Threatening the Vatican with a suicide attack.
4) Addressing the Pope as “you dog of Rome” while promising to “shake your thrones and break your crosses in your home,” by “sending you people who adore death as much as you adore life.”

Therefore, students, we can surmise the following:

Either there is no word for “Irony” or “Self-Fulfilling Prophesy” in Arabic, or

Not much has changed in 615 years.

In any case, the Muslim community’s reactions to a book written over half a millennium ago directly underscore how sadistic, ignorant, and vitriolic they are towards Western Civilization. Diversity? Tolerance? World Peace? Don’t count on it. If even one of these brainwashed troglodytes are left breathing to disseminate their bastardized, maniacal dogma, our planet will forever be left asphyxiating in a dark, fiery tarn of chaos and devastation.

Why is anyone bothering to tiptoe around these psychopaths? You draw a cartoon that places them in a unfavorable light, they protest and blow things up. A respected world leader reads a passage from an ancient text, they protest and blow things up. I bet that that if you hawked up some phlegm on to the ground and it bore a passing resemblance to Mohammed, some wild-eyed bearded yo-yo would declare a jihad on everyone with an upper-respiratory infection. Let's give it a rest already with the diplomacy, and bridge-building and the soft, placating speeches and launch some fucking Trident II's directly at the Kaaba Rock.

Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum.

Class dismissed. For homework, please define the words "Troglodyte," "Vitriolic," and "Tarn." And ask your parents to buy you a rifle. You're gonna need it.

Ah, it's good to be back...I bet you missed me...

Ahhh, like acid poetry. Very nice. :)

Yes, I did miss you, but I would never tell YOU that. ;p

No, no...telling me that you missed me would merely be feeding my ego.

We wouldn't want that.

All empty souls tend toward extreme opinions (W. B. Yeats)

Something occurred to me as I was having a conversation with a friend today, (she’s definitely one of the Outcast by the way), when she mentioned that I wasn’t very “open-minded.” The phrase “open-minded” is perhaps the most aggravating and deceptive American axioms ever invented. Why? Because it’s a trap. The only reason people see others as not “open-minded” is because they are not in agreement about a particular subject. If someone says, “I don’t think the U.S. ever put a man on the moon,” I’d disagree, because there’s tons of evidence to the contrary. But then I’d be met with the dreaded “you need to be more open-minded!” Well, shouldn’t they have the same level of open-mindedness? Of course not. Because in their lexicon, “open-minded” means “believing any old bit of nonsense as long as it goes against tradition.” Cold, hard facts scare these people, so they hide behind the gilded shield of “opinions.”

To be honest, I don’t believe there are any such things as opinions. There are f…

Tolerance Is The Virtue Of The Man Without Convictions

I know I'm a month late, but I finally made a New Year’s resolution: I’m going to stop being tolerant of things I cannot possibly tolerate. Quite frankly, I’m getting sick of the word and the abstract, often syntactically incorrect usage foisted upon us by the Thought Police of the American media and the educational system. You can’t watch a news program, or pick up a textbook without the word being flung at you from every corner, more often than not accompanied by a sense of shameful obligation. Religious tolerance, cultural tolerance; I’ve actually heard the phrase “gender tolerance” spoken more than once while at University. Because those in the aforementioned fields are typically of a one-sided, fanatical ambition – namely to strip the individual of the thought processes which makes one individual – journalists and educators co-opt words for their own purposes and reshape them to suit their own will and agenda. Incorrectly using the word “tolerance” to be a synonym for “accept…
