Ben Stein: Expelled

I’ve been told to shut up a few times myself. That’s how these people operate: If you disagree with me, you should be silenced. For more info on this movie and for theatre times and locations, go to http://www.expelledthemovie.com

Albert Einsten: "Global warming will kill us all"

I was checking out the website of self-proclaimed global warming activist Laurie David today, when I noticed a quote in the header of the site:

"We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive."

"Wow" I thought. Did Albert Einstein really forsee some catastrophic fate for our very existence if we were to not buy into the theory of global warming? I’d heard/seen that quote somewhere before, and I didn’t recall anything about global warming in its context. Could it be that such an anchor statement was being used to mislead people into thinking that Albert Einstein supported the theory of Global Warming? I had to look up the context of this statement. This is what I found:

"The splitting of the atom has changed everything except the way we think. Thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive."

This statement, in fact, has no application to Global Warming, other than to claim that we who do not believe the global warming theory are stuck in some age-old paradigm that will doom us all.

RETRACTION: Divisiveness

As a person who believes in the dutiful propagation of truth and challenge of fallacy, it is my responsibility to inform you that I have made an important retraction in my Divisiveness editorial. Please read it for further details.

Divisiveness

RETRACTION: After being informed of the uncertainty of the origins of this speech, I’m doing my duty and posting this notice. It’s would be good for you to read this before reading the rest of this posting. I hope this helps to reduce the likelihood of someone spreading this questionable material.

The Democrats strategy of injecting fear into the black people, the young, the old, and the poor is well explained by a speech made by slave owner William Lynch in 1712 on bank of the James River…

“Gentlemen, I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve.

First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here.

I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies where I have experimented with some of the newest and still the oldest methods of control of slaves.

Ancient Rome would envy us if my program were implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw enough to know that your problem is not unique.

While Rome used cords of woods as crosses for standing human bodies along its highways in great numbers you are here using the tree and the rope on occasion. I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree a couple of miles back.

You are not only losing a valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed.

Gentlemen, you know what your problems are: I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them.

In my bag here, I have a fool proof method for controlling your Black slaves. I guarantee everyone of you that if installed correctly it will control the slaves for at least 300 hundred years. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it.

I have outlined a number of differences among the slaves: and I take these differences and make them bigger. I use fear, distrust, and envy for control purposes. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South.

Take this simple little list of differences, and think about them. On top of my list is “Age”, but it is there only because it starts with an “A”: the second is “Color” or shade, there is intelligence, size, sex, size of plantations, status on plantation, attitude of owners, whether the slave live in the valley, on hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, coarse hair, or is tall or short.

Now that you have a list of differences. I shall give you an outline of action-but before that I shall assure you that distrust is stronger than trust and envy is stronger than adulation, respect, or admiration.

The Black slave after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self re-fueling and self generating for hundreds of years, maybe even thousands.

Don’t forget you must pitch the old Black male vs. the young Black male, and the young Black male against the old Black male. You must use the dark skin slaves vs. the light skin slaves and the light skin slaves vs. the dark skin slaves. You must use the female vs. the male, and the male vs. the female.

You must also have your white servants and overseers distrust all Blacks, but it is necessary that your slaves trust and depend on us. They must love, respect and trust only us.

Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. If used intensely for one year, the slaves themselves will remain perpetually distrustful.

Thank you, gentlemen.”

Is it any wonder why many of the black people are struggling to rebuild their families, leave the cradle of the state, and bring themselves into prosperity.

Brainwashed

I’m becoming convinced more and more that 1984 is coming unless we act now. Case in point:

One of my brothers sent this on to me: Brainwashing 101. I encourage any level-headed, open-minded person to watch it. I say that because I know that the hot-headed, hatemongering masses will not. Most of the video doesn’t really surprise me, but the extent to which the students are persecuted by college officials does. It’s pretty scary how speech rights are locked down on college campuses to make anything but liberal propaganda speech worthy of expulsion.

I’ll pass on the “higher-education”. I’ve got a life-long enrollment to University of Ideas instead.

Sidenote: I’ve seen the speaker referred to in the video, C. Mason Weaver. He’s an excellent speaker, and has a unique point of view on government, taxes, slavery, racism, jobs, and business ownership. I encourage you to read It’s OK to Leave the Plantation, or for the impatient, The Rope. For a sample of the content of his speeches, listen to this clip.

59 (and climbing) Deceits in Fahrenheit 9/11

Want to prepare your self for the deception in Michael Moore’s latest propaganda film Fahrenheit 9/11? Try reading this: http://www.davekopel.com/Terror/Fiftysix-Deceits-in-Fahrenheit-911.htm. There are so many deceits in this film, I didn’t have to time to read about them all in one sitting.

Print this out, read it, and use it as a viewing guide to the movie. Oh yeah, and be sure to grab it while you can. Apparently Moore doesn’t mind people downloading it using BitTorrent. Can’t argue with him in this case: I certainly wouldn’t pay to be force-fed crap like that OR to support someone who uses propaganda to incite and fuel blind hatred.


Side note: I’ve read both Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury AND the quoted 1984 by George Orwell. They rank among my favorites and Fahrenheit 451 ranks as my #1 favorite book (well, aside from the Bible. That’s a given). Both of these books address behaviors that the Nazi’s and all other Socialist/Communist movements have exibhited. Fahrenheit 451 was clearly about an oppressive government that banned books to achieve a society where no-one was offended, and history could be re-written. 1984 was similarly about an oppressive government that watches your every move, rewrites history, and changes language to conform citizens to a powerful government agenda. These descriptions apply to what Socialists have long tried to achieve around the world, and even in our own country. Just look at most any Liberal cause: The ALCU, public schooling, Supreme Court, The U.N., etc. Moore supports this Socialist world view and will twist the facts any way he can to help further this historically evil movement.

A ”Conversation” with a liberal.

What follows is a copy of an actual AIM conversation I had with a relative tonight. I post it to serve as an example of just how hypocritically un-intellectual actual conversations with liberals can be. The name of the relative has been changed out of respect for his privacy:

(00:31:10) Fred: btw one more thing….

(00:31:39) Fred: get ridd of that STUPID BUSH icon!!!!!!!!

(00:32:29) Me: heh

(00:32:31) Fred: i dojnt want to start a polictical fight but BUSH WACKING SUCKS!!!!!!

(00:32:45) Me: Better than a flip-flop.

(00:32:51) Fred: what?

(00:32:57) Me: Oh nothing.

(00:33:06) Fred: i didnt get that

(00:33:25) Me: “In the 2004 presidential field there is a candidate for nearly every point of view, his name is John Kerry” -Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe

(00:33:42) Fred: ????

(00:34:24) Fred: what do you mea, he can make up he mind?

(00:34:44) Me: Read the article in the link

(00:35:06) Fred: no not tonight

(00:35:11) Fred: om going to bed

(00:35:11) Me: ok

(00:36:43) Fred: no offence but im NOT being nice. only a moron would vote for a moron. Mr. moron Geroge BUSH VOTE KERRY

(00:37:31) Fred: if you dont like kerry, vote for him anyway because a vote for him is vote against bush

(00:38:08) Fred: but goodnight

(00:38:30) Fred: bye



At this point, he signs off, not even giving me a chance to respond. What follows is the response I prepared for a buddy pounce.

I’m sorry Fred. Those have got to be the most closed-minded, childishly insulting statements I have ever heard. Furthermore, your reasoning is scary. You clearly have no idea what you are even voting FOR, but you certainly would make a mule green with envy over your blindly stubborn belief that you know what you are voting against. Saying a statement like that is like saying “A vote for Hitler is a vote against BUSH”. While it may be true, you’ll be in worse shape if you do. You need to learn a little more about who exactly you are voting for, because clearly you don’t know. Prove me worng. Enligten me with your apparently expansive knowledge of Kerry, rather than your baseless, redundant, unconvincing, humorless insults.

Intellectual and open-minded. Clearly.

Google Tampers with Rankings for Liberal Lean?

Compare the “filtered” (links specifically not excluded) rankings for Miserable Failure against the standard unfiltered rankings for the same search. Now Google, why would the ranks for the same search differ? Hmmmmmm?



Sounds like there’s some covert political motives within Google.


Update 2/2: Just got an email from Aaron at the MFP this morning. He seems to think it’s just a Google quirk and says that the rankings have been screwed up all week.

People Eating Tasty Animals

I swear those feminazis at PETA must have brain damage from lack of proper nutrition. Check out this pamphlet from PETA: Your Mommy Kills Animals (original). I’d think it’s funny (Mmm. Rabbit meat tastes like chicken), except for the fact that this was targeted at small children, and makes outright lies about parents.

These people are only stopping short of making threats on our lives. And of course, they’d think that’s justifiable.
