The Full-Court Press Against the Boy Scouts Continues

California Courts Move to Blacklist Boy Scouts

A move is under way in the California court system to ban judges from belonging to the Boys Scouts of America because the youth organization discriminates against homosexuals.

A proposed rule change by the Supreme Court Advisory Committee on The Code of Judicial Ethics would make the BSA no longer “excepted from the category of organizations that practice ‘invidious discrimination’ on the basis of sexual orientation.”

Last May, the BSA’s National Council voted to allow acknowledged homosexuals to be in the program but not in leadership. It’s the ban on “gay” leaders that has prompted the California courts’ action.

Commentary by walford

Does this mean that judges whose religious beliefs [e.g. observant Christians, Jews, Muslims] do not comport with Secular Humanist orthodoxy are by definition unfit to serve on the bench?

Let us remember that this full-court press against the BSA [I was a Cub Scout and Boy Scout] is not about suddenly changing its policy to disallow homosexuals being put in charge of children whose parents might not share their views of their sexuality.

This sanction is for NOT changing to what Our Betters have now decided is the 'correct' policy. It is punishment for non-conformance with what is first and foremost a personal value system. That certainly applies as to what is deemed appropriate behavior around other people's children.

If some people decide to found a homosexual-friendly childrens’ group, I am quite sure the BSA and their supporters would not utter a word of objection, much less try to obstruct them from associating as they see fit according to their personal values.

Why cannot those who do not want their children taught [that homosexuality is what the elites say it is] have that same choice, if we are supposed to be pro-choice. Are Americans entitled to raise their children according to their own values or is this now subject to the approval of the Collective as proclaimed by an arrogant elite?

The Dangerous Cultural Divide: Race vs, Rule-of-Law

Trayvon’s mom: Stand Your Ground helped Zimmerman get away with murder

The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law.

“The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder.”

Commentary by walford

I think many [including Trayvon’s Mother] who think that Zimmerman should have been convicted believe that it is perfectly reasonable to attack someone merely because they are watching -- and even following -- you go through a neighborhood [with a history of burglaries] as you are casing houses while wearing a garment that obscures your face. To run away or call the police would likely be considered a sign of weakness in Trayvon’s milieu.

Let us consider that such people consider being “disrespected” to be sufficient grounds to take another person’s life. But there are apparently strict protocols of chivalry that apply to victims of violent thugs -- particularly depending upon the demographics of the parties involved. For example, to use a weapon to defend oneself from an unarmed attacker is unacceptable in the Code of the Street.

To handle the inevitable conflicts that will arise with others peacefully and civilly is beyond their capacity. They expect others to adhere to their might-makes-right value system.

This is at the root of the objections of many to Stand Your Ground laws. If you are being attacked -- particularly by a member of a Designated Victim Group -- you are expected to take your beating and possibly be killed if you violate the Code. In this case, the violation was watching somebody possibly casing houses for burglary.

This is not the value system of most Americans. To accommodate it would be to surrender to violence and savagery. Law-abiding citizens are armed in this country and rightfully so. Expect to be shot if you are waving sharpened screwdrivers in our faces on the subway — or beating our heads into concrete.

Not initiating violence is always an option if this value system is not appealing.

If those who are not capable of behaving like civilized human beings engage in behaviors that ultimately costs their lives, I daresay the world is well rid of them.

Eating Our Own While the Battle Rages: Christian Sectarianism

Commentary by walford

I am not even a Christian, but continued to be appalled at the open hostility toward Catholicism. I can understand it from the Left, but it never ceases to amaze me the self-destructive sectarian vitriol from many Protestants.

How do you think that Western civilization is going to survive the coming onslaught if a major force behind its creation and continued existence -- Christianity -- is at war with itself?

Let us remember that it was early Catholic theologians and clerics who preserved the works of the ancient world -- as well as the ability to read and write -- through the Dark Ages.

We continue to benefit from that.

The Left continues to bash the Catholic Church because they know that it is a pillar of Western Civilization and must be destroyed if our entire way of life is going to be successfully surrendered to the savages who are waiting to pick at our bones.

Intelligence Redistribution

I think that differences in intelligence is elitist and possibly racist. Therefore intelligence [well, actually stupidity] should be re-distributed. Everyone should have a mandatory IQ test. Those who score higher than deemed necessary by the government should then have their intelligence lowered by chemical and/or surgical means.

Of course -- as is always the case -- those in the political class who draft and enact the laws necessary to make this happen should be exempt. So too exempt should be their select friends in the media, academia and entertainment industry.

After all, they are important people and need more of everything to do what is best for all of us. Anyone who is against this is by definition stupid, ill-informed and/or evil.

Oh, wait. All of this has already been done by the public school system for nearly three generations.

The Sickness of Western Culture: Can We Survive it?

Culture’s shifting sands on moral standards
by Gilbert T. Sewell

Sixty years ago juvenile delinquency and what to do about it suddenly drew a round of national soul searching. We no longer even use the term. We think in terms of juvenile monsters.

Yesteryear’s hoods and troublemakers seem quaint and innocent beside today’s appalling school murders, gang rapes and teenage mayhem...

...Put together violent, porn-saturated electronic entertainment and armed, shame-free, unparented young men. Crazy things happen...

...Who is delinquent? A sociopath? A truant, an unwed mother, a rapist of drunken and unconscious girls, a meth addict or a mass murderer? Where does anybody rightly draw the line?
Commentary by walford

Our species is no less subject to Nature's Laws than any other living thing. A culture can have a sickness as well and Western Civilization is very ill indeed.

Just as it is with an individual, a culture can evolve through stages and be stuck in a certain one. The Islamic World is currently in an infantile stage in which demons, spirits and ghosts drive their lives without question as the self-appointed spokesmen for the Almighty play to fear, envy, lust and other base emotions to take and hold power over others.

Western Civilization is currently in a juvenile stage. Our technology makes us tempted to indulge in hubris as we are drunk with our capabilities, but have little concern as to the consequences.

And just as it is with an individual, the juvenile stage is a dangerous one, because Nature brooks no disobedience of Her Laws w/o consequences.

So our youth -- particularly those of the affluent -- is being raised to think that they are victims and entitled to do unto others. They are raised to have no investment in the world they leave behind; that there is no Order or Justice in the universe and that life is not a blessing, but merely an accident of good or bad fortune.

The Islamic world in its infantilism has not "progressed" beyond that and may indeed succeed in surviving as they watch us destroy ourselves from within -- and bide their time.

Then, all that the so-called progressives hold dear will go the way of the dinosaur as we continue to select ourselves for extinction. Fearful of freedom and contemptuous of the majority, the Left has worked diligently to revert us to a medieval socio-economic structure in which most of us live in poverty, ignorance, disenfranchisement and oppression as we are lorded over by an arrogant elite.

It need not be this way. Our civilization can survive and go to a mature stage in which we progress in our technology, mindful of the consequences of our choices upon ourselves and our posterity. The Founding Fathers of the United States of America got us to a good start. If the West have any chance, we would be well-advised to review their works and continue where they left off.

Otherwise, the barbarians are not only at the gate, they have breached the perimeter.

Obama secession petitions: 34 of 50 states petitioning the president to secede

It's unclear whether these petitions are a nod to dissatisfaction that some conservatives think may soon match Civil War proportion,or not. However, the utter contempt for the Obama administration indicated by this petition drive, which appears to be on its way to all fifty states, is very clear.
Commentary by walford

Greetings from Virginia.

These petitions at the very least make an explicit statement that, in the aftermath of the most recent election, many of us are finding ourselves in a country that is no longer a nation.

In its bid for power-by-any-means, the Party of Jim Crow has successfully played upon fear, envy and other base emotions selling the bill of goods that dependency and hedonism are to be exalted, while the values of freedom, self-reliance and equality under the law -- upon which the Party of Abraham Lincoln were founded -- are out-dated at best and evil at worst. People who stand for limited government and individual rights are smeared as by definition stupid, ill-informed and/or evil.

We have a smirking, disdainful elite that is increasingly unable to conceal its contempt for the general population for whom it purports to advocate. Much of their energies are spent thwarting popular will if it cannot be manipulated via carefully managed information from the classroom, Movie Theater, T.V. screen and press. They are building a medievalist society in which the vast majority is deliberately kept poor, ignorant and disenfranchised.

And yet they are lionized as champions of the masses.

They consider themselves entitled to have political influence grossly disproportionate to their numbers. Much like the Machiavellian princes of pre-democratic Europe, they regard themselves superior [without having to be bothered to offer proof as to why] and therefore tasked with Divine Right the responsibility to lord over us as paternalistic tyrants -- because we cannot be trusted to see to our own economic needs and personal security. Hence, they are against anything that empowers the citizenry and for anything that fosters dependency.

Rather than being born into this class, one gains exalted status via the political arena wherein the rules depend upon with whom you are connected. They make it clear that there is no legitimate means to garner personal economic success other than in the media, politics or the entertainment industry. They have many convinced that it is not possible to gain wealth while creating jobs in the private sector except through treachery that must be roundly punished. If people lose jobs as a result, this is blamed upon capitalist greed, not their policies.

And there is no such thing, of course, as greed for the ability to use the coercive power of government to hold sway over others.

It is not too hard to predict the results of the medieval barbers currently in charge prescribing more blood-letting as a cure for economic anemia. Most people don't care about politics, but they do care if they can provide for their most basic of needs as wages remain flat and the cost of living soars. There simply are not enough of “the rich” to provide for the rest of us and most still have enough pride and integrity to want to pay their own way.

What will come of this, it is hard to say. But those of us who truly love America are not going to stand idly by and watch our country lain waste by those who demonstrably fear and loathe the Land of the Free.

Sic Semper Tyrannis.
