Merry Christmas

To all.

As I did on Thanksgiving Day, I was going to post the words of a hymn, followed by a link to a video performance of it that I especially like.  However, when I Googled this particular hymn, every different version that I clicked on was different.  There is apparently no agreement on this. In fact, in the video below, at one point the words (subtitles) on the video clearly differ from what the people are actually singing!

So, I will settle for just the first verse, upon which there seems to be universal agreement:

O come all ye faithful joyful and triumphant
Oh come ye O come ye to Bethlehem;
come and behold him born the King of angels;
Oh come let us adore Him,
Oh come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

And the video. It’s a nice one. Of course, given the sheer variety of versions of this hymn, I suppose it’s a tossup whether this version will be doctrinally congruent with the beliefs of a random reader here. However, in the spirit of Christmas, I imagine we can all live with that. :)

Leftist French doctor calls for rape of white French women

All in the name of social justice, I suppose:

Rape “right-wing” females to create “multicolored descendants”, says French Doctor

In the blog section of French media outlet, Nouve L’obs, a doctor wrote that any woman who votes for Front National (French anti-mass immigration party) has a “reptilian brain” and should be raped and impregnated to produce “multicolored descendants.”

I’m at a loss for how to respond to that.

The article goes on to mention that the website deleted the doctor’s post.  However, the full text of his original diatribe has been preserved at the link.  In English.

I also recommend Anonymous Conservative’s quite interesting remarks on the subject.

Happy Solstice

Actually, it’s tomorrow, December 22.  So all you folks who can’t stand the excessive darkness this time of year have one more day to go yet before the days start getting longer again.

[edit] Actually, that’s wrong.  It depends on what time zone you are in.  The solstice occurs simultaneously worldwide, so in the “front” time zones, starting with Greenwich Mean time and a few immediately to the west of there, it actually does occur on the 22nd.  Here in the U.S., though, and for the rest of the world on this side of the International Date Line, it will be TODAY, December 21.  (Then, once you cross the International Date Line, you are back to Tuesday, December 22.)

Trump to conquer England, assume monarchy

Just for laughs, I have to post this.

Petitioning Donald Trump: The USA To Conquer England

Given that:

1) The UK has been overrun with Muslim invaders
2) The English have lost the gene to defend their people
3) The English have an Orwellian Police State

We hereby request that our glorious leader, President Trump, do the following:

1) Invade and conquer England
2) Establish the House of Trump as the new Monarchy
3) Remove Muslims from the land
4) Require Americans to mate with English to remove the cuck gene

RAMZPAUL Ramsey started this petition with a single signature, and now has 1,044 supporters.

What a hoot!

To report or not to report, that is the question

On December 3, I noticed on the front page of the local newspaper that there was no mention whatsoever of the San Bernadino terrorist shooting that had occurred the previous day.  I remarked upon it at the time to a couple of co-workers, who speculated that the shooting occurred after press time. That didn’t seem quite right to me, but since I didn’t have a better explanation, I let it slide. (I didn’t bother looking through the rest of the paper to see if it had been mentioned at all. Looking back, I now realize that was a mistake.)

More recently, there was an incident here where someone was non-fatally shot by police officers. It happened around 3:30 p.m.  It was the headline article on the front page of the newspaper the very next morning.  There wasn’t a lot of detail in the article, but at least it was up there in top view, right where it ought to be: Shootings are mercifully rare around here, and shootings by police officers are even more unusual.

So, I got curious and looked up the time of the San Bernadino incident.  According to Wikipedia, it happened at 10:59 a.m., local time, which would be 12:59 p.m. in this time zone. Thus, the suggestion that it happened after press time is clearly incorrect. Why, I wonder, was it completely omitted from the front page?

The local paper here is owned by one of the major players in the newspaper business. I, and others, have noticed that the major players in mainstream news today seem to have some, shall we say, particular tendencies when it comes to reporting violent crimes. Obviously this is the first thing that comes to mind when I wonder about the mysterious absence of the San Bernadino shooting on the front page.

Why I am not a liberal

I’ve been toying lately with the possibility of adding another category to my category list, named “why I’m not a liberal,” and then focusing on that for a while, with links to and discussion of all the various species of lunacy and hypocrisy that liberals are expected to believe in this day and age. The problem is, even if I limited myself just to current events, there’s so much out there that I could probably spend all day, every day blogging about that. It’s a veritable avalanche of stupidity, and I actually have to work for a living, you know?

So, for now, I’ll just throw out this link to Ann Coulter’s recent, wonderful rant: San Bernardino Shooters Unknown: Here Are Some Past Mass Shooters, wherein she takes aim at the New York Times’ patently ridiculous assertion that American mass shootings are perpetrated by “mostly white men.” Go Ann, go!

Sincerely,
A White Man

More on that…

All sarcasm aside, I wanted to focus on one additional aspect of the article I linked in the previous post. I’ll interject a comment or two:

Migrants and locals got into a fight [note the passive voice here, as if someone didn’t actually start the fight, it just occurred as if by magic] in a restaurant in Bavaria on Sunday, resulting in a 50-year-old German man receiving serious head injuries.

The brawl, which began as an argument between a small group of migrants and local residents eating at a restaurant in the town of Velden, started [passive voice again] in the early hours of Sunday morning, according to Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The situation appeared to calm down when the migrants left, but they soon returned with reinforcements. [emphasis added]

So, ok. Brawls “begin” from time to time, and fights “break out.” Maybe not very often in Germany among Germans, but I’m sure the occurrence is slightly greater than zero. What happened here, though, is another animal altogether. The migrants appeared to leave, but then came back with reinforcements and resumed the fight. In other words, they intentionally escalated the conflict, taking it from the realm of flaring tempers right into premeditated vengeance.

Do Germans ever behave that way? (Well, not in recent history, for sure.) I can’t be the only person to notice this. Of course, people whose jobs or ideologies depend on not noticing will certainly not notice, probably not even if they themselves are on the receiving end of such an attack.
