Remember the fundamentals.

“The era when you could just show up to church for your weekly dose of sacraments and a sermon, then return to your ordinary, humdrum life of basic virtue and decency is over. Cultural Marxism has declared all-out war on basic virtue and decency, and it is winning.”

Neoreaction for dummies.

Praise is not pay. As for why I do it, it’s a combination of #1 & 3. As well, it gives me a place to rant and a place to think out loud: I found I was wasting time commenting elsewhere to no avail; I actually spend less time on the blog, while having more coherent and effective thoughts.

It rapes a village to take a child.

“The psychology of the looter and that of the hard core Leftist, the sort who were eager to dance on Mrs Thatcher’s grave, both share this common point: To them wealth is not created, it simply exists and should therefore be shared out. “

  1. Thank you for the link. I actually watched the whole thing. Only because I was hoping at some point red’s head would explode. *spoiler alert* it gets close but unfortunately doesn’t ever actually explode.

  2. With chicks going into Islam, seems clear to me that they’re, again, looking for that alpha male and — OMG! — patriarchical setup, where they’re absolved from making decisions. The man is the head of the household and the chicks are more than happy to walk a few paces behind the men.

  3. That feminist in the video is doing more for men’s rights than any man ever has. If there is anything women will run screaming away from it’s the red headed monstrosity.

  4. Thank you for the linkage, and this video really shocked the living heck out of me. I happen to know the woman in the video, used to be a regular patron in a bar I worked at. It just goes to show that you never really know people. I would never have guessed her a feminist, and seeing her so worked up just boggles my mind.
