The Criminalization And Annihilation Of Christianity In America

homo rage

The Homosexual agenda is not about rights or freedom at all – it is about punishing and eliminating biblical Christianity

Be on your guard. For they will deliver you over to councils, and you will be beaten in synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them…And brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death. And you will be hated by all for My Name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. – Mark 13:9-12,13

Institutional Persecution is here at our very door and the goal is to diminish the numbers of Americans who identify as Christian.  This tactic works on a people who have never experienced persecution, and whose belief system is as bendable and compromising as warm, yeast-filled dough.  Christians sadly no longer understand that a little leavening, leavens the entire loaf.

The American image of what it means to be Christian is one the secular Left has written for the followers of Christ who use selective scripture to shame the brethren into silence and compromise with sin.  Biblical illiteracy has ensnared the church into agreeing with the redefinition of sin and redefining God in the process.  The church by and large has swallowed the heresies preached by the media, academia and entertainment that what was evil is now good, and what was once good – is now evil in a perverse society.

Acceptance and compromise is now the litmus test of what it means to be Christian in America according to it’s political, cultural and religious leadership.  “Love” and acceptance and tolerance are the ONLY doctrines of the faith that Christians should follow and observe as they are the only measure that this evil society will look for.

Sadly the majority of Christians in America have swallowed this deception hook, line and sinker.  The church has been caught up in the nets of anti-Christian demagoguery, and they seek mercy in futility from the unmerciful who fully intend to purge fishers of men from their midst.  The church in America – all it’s denominations, are about to experience the persecution they have long sought to avoid unless they surrender their faith entirely and embrace the new religion promoted by government and culture.  The warnings have been made.  The alarms have sounded. The attacks are going to come from outside the church and also from INSIDE the church – by those who are the wolves in their midst who have bought the doctrines of demons preached in the culture.

What’s coming is going cause a lot of people to fall away from the faith. Being a faithful biblical Christian is going to come under intense fire not only from outside the churches, but from within. There will be serious stigma attached to standing up for orthodox teachings on homosexuality.

“Hate” it is said – “Is not a Christian virtue” – because the heresy now accepted as truth is that it is more Christian to accept and embrace what was once considered an abomination than stand against it.  To eschew sin that society says is noble and virtuous, is declared to be ‘hate’, even if the bible itself declares it to be sin.  You have no freedom to disagree because to disagree with the cultural zeitgeist is ‘hate’.

The Apostle Paul stated that sin is like leavening, and just a little bit will eventually leaven the entire loaf of society until God Himself is redefined by the very wickedness His Word eschews, until it is accepted as the only true god.

The homosexual/Leftist Agenda is not content to co-exist, it must because of it’s nature – infect everything and change it all into the very perversions they practice. God then becomes a homosexual Jesus.  To refuse or resist this leavening of sin – is declared “hate”, and if it is accepted as hate – then opposition to this agenda is actionable.

But the Spirit explicitly says that in the End times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron – I Timothy 4:1-2

Our first Dictator-In-Chief himself practices this tactic;  Obama’s All-Out Attack on Christians – His Heinous cites concern over resistance to accepting homosexuality because he says Christians are ‘unloving’.   The charge of ‘hate’ is the club that will be used to beat brethren into submission to evil, and if that does not work – there are already calls to use the power of government to FORCE Christians into submission and acceptance.

NYT’s Writer says Biblical Christians MUST BE FORCED to ‘fully embrace’ the homosexual lifestyle.   Those who hold to the bible “have no place at America’s table”.


rainbow-gay-American-flaghomo mob-jpg

Read that again.  Let it sink in.

“No place at America’s table”.  Do not take that statement lightly because genocides and wholesale persecutions begin exactly in this manner, and we were warned by Jesus Himself in Matthew 24 that we would be delivered up to death in this time.  “Hater” becomes the justification for punishment and persecution.

The use of force is then used as a justification to exact submission to demands, and the demands are to revise your faith…. or be punished.  As stated by the writer of this sickening diatribe, “Church leaders must be made to take homosexuality off the sin list”.  Homosexual Activist Mitchell Gold mandates this as a new Commandment to which Frank Bruni of the NYT’s (the birdcage liner of record) says:  “His commandment is worthy — and warranted.”  Ask yourself, who will be the agents to force church leaders to remove homosexuality from the biblical citation as sin?

Government and the courts.  They can and will use the IRS to enact economic sanction, followed by criminal charges and action.

Do not be deceived, for all their claims of wanting acceptance will never be enough.   It is already being said that it is not enough that Christians be forced to accept sin, the bible itself must be rewritten, and any offensive passages stripped and removed.  Anyone still holding to those verses is to be regarded as a hater – and punished.  The criminalization of biblical Christianity paves the way for any adherents to be annihilated later.

It is not only the media in this country that are waging war on Christians and demonizing them and Our Lord.  Professors and educators are remaking Christ into a Marxist/Leftist/Humanist messiah, merging homosexual activism with anti-white racism from black Leftists.

A black racist professor at Rutgers University states it this way:

Left’s Homosexual Campaign: Not About Freedom, But Delegitimization and Annihilation of Christianity

Columnist George Will points out that Apple’s openly gay CEO, Tim Cook, “… thinks Indiana is a terrible place. (But) He opened marketing and retail operations in Saudi Arabia two months before a man was sentenced to 450 lashes for being gay.”

Will was commenting on Cook’s recent Washington Post op-ed protesting Indiana’s new, now amended, Religious Freedom Restoration Act and similar initiatives around the country.

World Magazine reports that Cook has recently been in the United Arab Emirates negotiating on behalf of Apple, where homosexuality is against the law and the penalty is death.

Cook’s duplicity is not just in deeds, but also in words.

The Indiana law was passed to protect religious freedom, mirroring existing federal law and law in 31 states around the nation.

Our Declaration of Independence notes our inalienable rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” But for Cook, who purports in his op-ed to care about freedom, protection of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” for a Christian is an act of aggression against gays.

He renders religious freedom meaningless by accusing those, who exercise their right of protection of discrimination against those who wish to violate their rights.

“This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings,” he writes. You would think that Cook, CEO of the most valuable company in the world, with a reported personal net worth of $400 million, could perceive his transparent double standard.

For him and other homosexual activists, Christians cannot observe their religion and live by the Bible’s words they hold sacred without discriminating against gays. If this is about “how we treat each other as human beings,” as Cook writes, then how can he justify a same-sex couple going to a baker or photographer they well know is Christian, for whom homosexuality is a sin, and demand a cake or photography for a gay wedding. Can Tim Cook really believe that this is decent, tolerant, freedom-loving human behavior?

The truth is that the objective of the homosexual campaign is not about American freedom. The objective is the delegitimization and annihilation of Christianity in America.

This did not begin yesterday.

It is now well over a half century that the words of our constitution are being distorted so that the very protections guaranteed for Christians are used as weapons against them.

From the prohibition of prayer in school, to prohibitions of public displays of the Ten Commandments and Christian symbols, to lawsuits against Christian photographers for refusing to provide the photography for gay weddings, the war against the Christian presence in America becomes increasingly open and aggressive.

And what has happened over the last half century while this has been going on? l

The institutions and behavior that provide the glue holding together a faithful, civil, and virtuous society have collapsed. The traditional American family is in shambles. Forty three percent of our babies are now born to unwed mothers compared to 5 percent a half century ago. And there have been over 56 million aborted unborn children.

It was not by accident that America’s first president George Washington warned the young nation, in his farewell address, that religion and morality are “indispensible” to “political prosperity,” and he cautioned against “the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.”

Meanwhile, as legal violence is used in the war on Christianity at home, physical violence is used in the same war in Muslim countries abroad. The Wall Street Journal reports that Christians today make up 5 percent of the population in the Middle East compared to 20 percent a hundred years ago.

As many political and business leaders cowardly enable this global war on Christianity, Christians must stand in defense of themselves and their religion and convictions.

Over the Cliff Into Race War

BlackMob

Mobs of Black thugs rampage in malls across the country, black assassins kill cops, snipers fire on police, black activist vows to kill cops and “innocent White children”.

Media scrubs mention of race of perps and is silent or advocates upheaval, chaos and ‘ethnic cleansing’ by promoting the insane rantings of maniacs as legitimacy.

What we are witnessing, has all happened before in history.  Mayhem and violence in the streets that are said to be necessary to invoke ‘justice’.  History teaches this always happens before narcissistic Left-wing revolutionists attempt genocidal mass murder of a targeted people and/or the establishment of an oppressive dictatorship and police state based on that movement.  Radical change movements always stoke their agenda-supporting base to do mayhem and violence under the guise of ‘justice’ or ‘equality’ in order to advance the underlying political agenda, setting the stage for a regime who will institutionalize such behavior after wiping out the very groups who currently act as useful idiots for the end-game.  Hitler’s SA (aka: Brownshirts) are a prime example of how this tactic works.

History is repeating.  Only it is not European Jews who are the targets this time around, it is White Americans.

From Obama on down, the meme both subtle and overt has been to promote the antagonism and violence against those the ‘change’ movement seeks to punish, while at the same time looking at the cameras and appealing for ‘dialogue’ and ‘peace’.

The mainstream media, pretending to be innocent observers, are Advocates of this strategy, stoking and instigating the very mayhem and violence that leads to what history teaches is at our own door.

We are already in the midst of a race war, the beginnings of an Ethnic Cleansing, and most Americans have no clue or understanding of what is taking place all around us.  But lets take a gander at some information from just this week to help you see the picture more clearly:

New York Times: “Let the Fires Burn Until Every City is on its Knees”

They want peace. No really. And the New York Times is just a dispassionate observer looking for reform and change. Not mass murder.

But Nicholas Kristof had one of his “Take the Mask Off Moments” when the radical left shows how ugly and unhinged it really is despite its facade of dinner parties and book clubs and that its media outlets promote violence.

And so he invited readers to send in poems about the usual stuff. Bunnies. Flowers. Killing all white people and burning America to the ground. And the emphasis was not on the bunnies and flowers.

Here’s a deranged screech of hate/incitement to violence that the leftist paper of record saw fit to run.

Angel Butts, a white woman married to a black man and the mother of “two beautiful brown babies,” said she hadn’t written a poem in 20 years.

Here’s what Angel Butts and Kristof had to offer.

And so, as Ferguson burns, I hear the voice inside me chant, “Burn on…”
Let the fires burn until every city, every town is on its knees.

Great plan. Why doesn’t Butts start with her house? Or the New York Times HQ. But of course it’s easy to cheer torching other people’s homes.

Kristof reminds us once again that the protests are as violent and bigoted as any Klan rally and that their supporters and cheerleaders are violent racists, thrilling to beating up convenience store workers and burning buildings.

That is what the left has always been. That is what it always is. That is why there is no living with the left. You can’t live with people whose idea of social justice is killing you and burning your house down.

Like so many of the violent leftists parading around with the #BlackLivesMatter gang, Angela Butts is a social sciences academic lecturing on Sociology at Rutgers and the College of State Island Is Rutgers aware of her support for violence and mass murder?

Black ‘Warrior’ Promises to Kill Cops and ‘Innocent White Children’ 

Facebook threats lead police to his basement firing range.

A man who built a firing range in the basement of his south suburban home took to Facebook and proclaimed his intention to murder police officers and “innocent white children” as a New Year’s resolution, according to authorities.

(snip) When police arrested him, Woodfin also told officers the “streets would run red with blood,” according to a Tribune source. Woodfin’s booking photo shows him clad in an orange t-shirt with the words revolution, freedom, justice, equality, criminal and other phrases written in marker on the front.

“We are organizing right now. The movement is real. This must happen for change to occur,” Woodfin posted on Facebook on Dec. 8….“Keep your kids close to you.”

He went on to write that he intended to kill police officers and white children. His Facebook profile has since been removed from the website.

 

“Go Ahead And Shoot Me… I’m Not Afraid Of White People.”

On the same day assassinated New York City Police Department officer Rafael Ramos was laid to rest in New York City, Madison, Wisconsin police were forced to draw their guns on a drunken thug who had attempted to rob a couple in a drugstore parking lot.

Payne said a 22-year-old woman had walked out of a Walgreens, and as she neared the car in which her boyfriend was waiting, a man was “hovering” and pointing what appeared to be a gun at her 25-year-old boyfriend.

…When the gun holder realized the woman was nearing the car, he aimed the laser lighter at her. This prompted the boyfriend to go for his own loaded weapon.

Thompson then reportedly said: “Go ahead and shoot me, I’m not afraid of you, I’m from the south side of Chicago and I’m not afraid of white people.”

The concealed carrying citizen was apparently enough of a gun enthusiast to realize that the thug wasn’t armed with a real weapon, and resisted the urge for a “free shot” at the allegedly drunken criminal.

Instead they called police, who arrived and took Quincy R. Thompson, 19, of Madison into custody on a number of charges. The laser-pointer was found nearby, suggesting that Thompson was at least marginally smarter than Tamir Rice, and ditched the toy weapon before police arrived. Thompson did threaten to blow up the city and “kill cops” when taken into custody.

 

Black Mob Violence at Christmas, All Over the Country

Holidays are a special time for practitioners and deniers of black mob violence. The Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day and of course New Year’s are among the most popular.

But not Christmas. Not usually. Not until this year: Black mob violence and resentment erupted across the country during the 72 hours before, during and after Christmas. And not the “carry signs and send out a press release” kind of political violence.

This year’s Yuletide racial violence was more spontaneous. More deadly. More old school.  Not connected to the recent political protests over Mike Brown, Eric Garner and fill in your favorite atrocity that racist police inflicted on black people For No Reason What So Ever.

Let’s start in a small town near Houston called Texas City, where hundreds of black people decided to celebrate Christmas Night at a party promoting “Hood Night.’

Near midnight, one of the patrons found himself in the parking lot, shooting a handgun. When police arrived, he was shooting toward the crowd and ignored orders to drop the weapon.

That is when Hood Night got real: The man with the gun turned towards police and they shot him dead. At least that is what the nightclub owner told local news stations after he reviewed the footage from his security cameras.

And what is Hood Night without a riot? “Police had to dispatch reinforcements after some people in the crowd starting throwing rocks at officers and police vehicles,” reported the local Fox affiliate.

The dead man’s mother and sisters said he was a good person and not prone to violence and people should not believe the police or witnesses or videotapes or anything else because the 20-year old man had recently graduated from high school and was getting his life together.

Next stop, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Christmas night: Police responded to a large group of black people fighting and destroying property at a nightclub. When police suggested to Aderito Andrade that he refrain from the violent behavior that he appeared to be exhibiting, he declined.

Andrade punched one cop in the face, knocking him out. Then he assaulted another.

By this time, the crowd of 50 to 100 black people was fully aware of the injustice of trying to arrest a man who had just attacked a police officer, so they responded in kind by attacking a female cop:

“Police said during the officers’ struggle to arrest Andrade, a large group of people surrounded the officers and began yelling obscenities,” reported Channel 12 news.  “A third officer was kicked several times by men in the group. Police then sprayed the crowd with pepper spray, causing them to disperse.”

In San Antonio, police responded to a noise complaint at a party. When they found the host, “things got out of hand,” said the Fox affiliate. “Instead of helping the officers, he stepped aside and into the middle of the crowd and began yelling things about the police,” Sgt. Joe Mckinney said.

That is when party-goers started punching the police and throwing rocks and bottles at them. Several black people were handcuffed. One of the people who threw the party was charged with inciting a riot.

But this all happened a few days before Christmas, so maybe it does not count as part of this Holiday roundup.

Off to Chicago, the day after Christmas: The Navy Pier hosted a holiday gathering called Winter WonderFest. During the party, 100 to 200 black people fought, raged, rampaged, destroyed property and fired guns.

In almost every episode in this report, people said guns were fired, but police said they were not. Unless someone got shot.

Back at Chicago’s most popular tourist destination, Navy Pier, one pregnant woman was injured and taken to the hospital. Five black people were arrested.  For a fuller picture of the holiday chaos, let’s turn to Chicago’s most reliable source for crime news: The Second City Cop Blog, a must read for law enforcement in the area. Or for anyone who wants a realistic account of black mob violence there. A few comments:

“It wasn’t a disturbance, it was a battery in progress. It wasn’t 50, it was more like 1000. There was also a report of a man with a gun and shots fired, although never verified. Not to mention a call for teens smoking weed in the Imax theater.”

Said another:

“Every race is getting sick and tired of the black teens running around acting like thug fools. No black mommas coming out to condemn their actions. The media continues to conceal the race of the thugs…although they mention the race of every white officer and every unarmed and armed black “victim.””

And one more:

“Got love it a large group of blacks male and female got to an area where it’s mainly white and they cause all this damage. Does the news report how this group hurt white citizens???”

The  following day, police shut down early Chicago Ridge Mall after hundreds of black people were creating mayhem in the food court.  One mall worker told the Chicago Sun Times that the disturbance was a “riot.”

Soon after the mall was evacuated, a Facebook page that tracks Chicago fire department calls posted: “Approximately 30 minutes ago Large fight inside the mall at 95th & Ridgeland involving around 500 people. Large groups on public transportation now headed east on 95th approaching the area of 95th & Pulaski. CPD has alerted all districts up to the Dan Ryan Red Line Station.”

Like Jacob Marley explaining to Scrooge, this holiday tour is just getting started. Let’s be on our way to the Monroeville Mall near Pittsburgh, the day after Christmas. Prior to this Yuletide riot, this mall was chiefly known as the setting for the 1978 zombie movie classic, Dawn of the Dead.

The day after Christmas, as many as 1000 black people descended on the mall and chaos, violence, property destruction, defiance, and other mayhem ensued, much of it on video.

So much so even the local news anchors had trouble believing what they were seeing. Two people were hurt and no one was arrested.

Despite the video evidence, police and mall officials tried to downplay the widespread violence. Commenters at local web sites insisted on some truth instead:

Said Kayla Valerina to WTAE:

“I was a witness of a teenage boy get jumped in JC Penny’s while I was shopping. He was kicked until he had bruises all over and probably a concussion. They took things such as his phone and things he had bought. I called 911 later bringing cops to the mall before everything went crazy.”

Said another: “Pictures and VIDEOS are worth a 1000 words….So if you think I am racist for this comment …..then you are a special kind of Stupid.”

Off to the Wolfchase Mall in Memphis: Basically the same as the Monroeville Mall, except the crowd of 250 black people was smaller. Though many in the area say racial violence has become an every day fact of life in Memphis, and this is just the latest example.

Said Frank G Bilbro to a local paper:

“Wolf chase will soon go the way of the Mall of Memphis, Raleigh Springs and Hickory Hill malls. Ghetto will take over and no decent person will want to go there. It will happen slowly at first with one store closing, then another and another and no retailers to take their place. Wolfchase will become an empty hulking monument to lack of decency and lawlessness.”

In Sacramento at the Arden Fair mall, a large group of black people were fighting and destroying property first in the food court, then outside. First upstairs, then downstairs, lasting several hours.

Police closed the mall 90 minutes early at 7:30 p.m. the day after Christmas and hauled twodozen people away in handcuffs, said KCRA News.

One police spokesperson did tell Fox 40 that this kind of violence around the holidays is normal because of “heightened emotions.”

In Davenport, Iowa — yes, Iowa — two days after Christmas, 10 police were called to the NorthPark mall to break up a group of black people engaged in a “large fight.” Three were arrested for various charges including rioting, assaulting a police officer and interfering with a police officer.

Police broke up the riot with pepper spray.

On Twitter, Shonnie warned them about acting the fool: “While yall are at northpark make sure not to have a crowd b/c the mall cops are petty & will make yall leave.”

But they did not listen.

In Orlando the day after Christmas, a group of black people were fighting inside a Publix grocery store. One person was shot, several fled.  A man only identified as Eric said he saw the suspects flee. He told the Orlando Sentinel: He “was not surprised by the gunfire: “I’ve lived here for a long time. I’ve seen a lot.”

No one was arrested.

In Nashville two days after Christmas, and just a few hours after a visit from both the Notre Dame and LSU football teams in town for the Liberty Bowl game,  150 black people fought, destroyed property, and rampaged through the Opry Mills Mall. Initial reports place two people in jail and one in the hospital.

Early news reports were sketchy, but Twitter was full of eyewitness accounts: “Wow! Just left Opry Mills Mall!,” said Amy Dulaney. “The Teenagers running amok, fights breaking out, kids running in groups from one side to the other! It was getting crazy! We were in Fossils and it got so bad the manager closed the doors to his store! 4 blue lights passed by as we were leaving! Crazy times!”

At Independence, Missouri, near Kansas City on the day after Christmas, “Independence Center locked down some stores early Friday night after large groups of youths congregated at the shopping mall and some fights broke out, ” said the Kansas City Star.

Hundreds of black people were fighting in the mall, outside of the mall, and for blocks in several directions away from the mall. Some of it on video.

More from The Star:

“Ashley Jones of Independence had just finished eating with friends at Applebee’s when they walked out about 8:20 p.m. and saw multiple police cars. One officer opened his trunk to retrieve a large gun, Jones said.

“We said, ‘Is it that bad?’ And he said, ‘Better safe than sorry,’” Jones said.

Then they saw a second officer getting a gun from his trunk. That officer told them a riot had broken out.

“We heard screaming and yelling, and we took off running,” Jones said. “It was very scary.”

At least one congressman can say “I told you so.”  That would be former mayor of Kansas City, Emanuel Cleaver. When last year, the Kansas City Council discussed imposing a cufew to curtail the regular and frequent black mob violence at the upscale Country Club Plaza, Cleaver advised against it: “All we are going to do is make a lot of black kids angry,” he said. “And they will just take out their anger someplace else.”

That dude is a psychic.

The Star disabled comments for the story.

To top off the holiday racial violence, twitchy.com assembled a curious collection of Tweets from black female rapper Azealia Banks.

Banks might not be the biggest rapper in the world, but with 580,000 followers on Twitter, she is far from the smallest. Her latest cause is forcing white people to pay black people reparations for slavery and racism and for general purposes.

Throughout the holidays she was urging her followers to track down the descendants of slave owners and do all sorts of bad things to them.

Which sounded like a pretty good idea to James DeWolf Perry, well known among the PBS set: “Executive Director of the Tracing Center, James DeWolf Perry has devoted a major portion of his life to educating Americans about the horrors of slavery. He was “nominated for an Emmy Award for his role as the principal historical consultant for our PBS documentary, Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North.”

He wanted to get on the Azealia Banks love train and told her so in a tweet: “I’m a white person who agrees with everything you’re saying about history, and about racial reality today.”

Azealia was not feeling the love: “@JDeWPerry someone should kick your ass, and punch you right in your stupid smiling cracker face.”

All of this is via the careful incitement, instigation and subtle encouragement from the Obama Regime, Eric Holder and their Praetorian sycophants in the government, entertainment and media.  This is now gone beyond blowing off steam and protesting.  This kind of rampaging anarchy is the vehicle being used to further the ‘fundamental transformation’ into a third world dictatorial hell-hole that has been designed for us.

The MOMENT a single white person defends themselves from this kind of mayhem from the feral black thug welfare mobs, the media and the Obama regime will have their cassus belli, and a crack down will begin in earnest.

I can say that, because history teaches us that this is exactly what tyrannical regimes and their ideological hordes do.

Stupidity Is The New ‘Genius’ In The Progressive Cult of Obama

ObamaDunce

The Left considers itself smarter than the rest of us, manufacturing the consensus of their own intelligence and insist that it proves them right, when they are horrifyingly wrong.

One of Daniel Greenfield’s best essays yet written that deconstructs the MarxoFascist/liberal/progressive Leftists in our midst, and explains why they are such smug-smarmy and arrogant people who think themselves morally superior to the rest of the America they hate.

The Left Is Too Smart To Fail

Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog

The infrastructure of manufactured intelligence has become a truly impressive thing. Today as never before there is an industry dedicated, not to educating people, but to making them feel smart. From paradigm shifting TED talks to paradigm to books by thought leaders and documentaries by change agents that transform your view of the world, manufactured intelligence has become its own culture.

Manufactured intelligence is the smarmy quality that oozes out of a New York Times column by Thomas Friedman, Maureen Dowd, Frank Bruni and the rest of the gang who tell you nothing meaningful while dazzling you with references to international locations, political events and pop culture, tying together absurdities into one synergistic web of nonsense that feels meaningful.

There’s a reason that there’s a Tom Friedman article generator online. But it could just as easily be a New York Times article generator that sums up the hollowness of the buzzword-fed crowd that is always hungry to reaffirm the illusion of its own intelligence.

We all know that George W. Bush was a moron. And we all know that Obama is a genius. We have been told by Valerie Jarrett, by his media lapdogs and even by the great man himself that he is just too smart to do his job. And it’s reasonable that a genius would be bored by the tedious tasks involved in running the most powerful nation on earth.

But what is “smart” anyway? What makes Obama a genius? It’s not his IQ. It’s probably not his grades or we would have seen them already. It’s that like so many of the thought leaders and TED talkers, he makes his supporters feel smart. The perception of intelligence is really a reflection.

Smart once used to be an unreachable quality. Einstein was proclaimed a genius, because it was said that no one understood his theories. Those were undemocratic times when it was assumed that the eggheads playing with the atom had to be a lot smarter than us or we were in big trouble.

Intelligence has since been democratized. Smart has been redistributed. Anyone can get an A for effort. And the impulse of manufactured intelligence is not smart people, but people who make us feel smart. That is why Neil deGrasse Tyson, another obsessively self-promoting mediocrity like Carl Sagan, is now the new face of science. Sagan made science-illiterate liberals feel smart while pandering to their biases. Tyson does the same thing for the Twitter generation.

Self-esteem is the new intelligence. Obama’s intelligence was manufactured by pandering to the biases and tastes of his supporters. The more he shared their biases and tastes, the smarter he seemed to be and the smarter they felt by having so much in common with such a smart man.

Obama Inc. built his image around the accessories of modern manufactured intelligence, premature biographies, global reference points and pop culture. This marriage of high and low with an exotic spice from the east embodies modern liberal intelligence. Take a dash of pop culture, mix it with an important quote, throw in some recent technological development that promises to “change how we all live”, mention your time in a foreign culture and draw an insipid conclusion.

That’s not just the DNA of every other New York Times column, TED talk and important book by an equally important thought leader sitting under the floodlights at your local struggling chain bookstore with its portraits of great writers on the wall and the tables groaning under unsold copies of Fifty Shades of Grey, Malcolm Gladwell, Candace Bushnell and Khaled Hosseini.

It’s also the DNA of Obama Inc. It is its assumption of intelligence through compassionate self-involvement, progressive insights derived from an obsession with the self and the sanctification of Third World references, real or imaginary, invoking the spiritual power of the Other, the totem of alien magic, to transcend the rational and the pragmatic. It is upscale Oprah; egotism masquerading as enlightenment, condescension as compassion and soothing quotes as religion.

Once upon a time, bright young American men went to Europe and wrote books about the world. That was our notion of intelligence. JFK did it and was widely praised for his intelligence. Today bright young American men and women go to the Third World and write their books about the world, mining the compost of their Flickr accounts, Tumblr updates and Twitter feed for deep thoughts.

Intelligence to a modern liberal isn’t depth, it’s appearance. It isn’t even an intellectual quality, but a spiritual quality. Compassionate people who care about others are always “smarter”, no matter how stupid they might be, because they care about the world around them.

An insight into how we live matters more than useful knowledge. Skill is irrelevant unless it’s a transformative progressive “changing the way we live” application.

Obama and his audience mistake their orgy of mutual flattery for intelligence and depth. Like a trendy restaurant whose patrons know that they have good taste because they patronize it, his supporters know that they are smart because they support a smart man and Obama knows he is smart because so many smart people support him.

The thought never rises within this bubble of manufactured intelligence that all of them might really be idiots who have convinced themselves that they are geniuses because they read the right books (or pretend to read them), watch the right movies and shows (or pretend to) and have the right values (or pretend to).

Smart is surplus when you have Gladwell sitting under a full DVD set of The Wire prominently displayed on your bookshelf right alongside a signed copy of The Audacity of Hope.

Marxists thought that Marxism was smart. Progressives measure intelligence in progressivism. Its only two qualities are “world awareness” and “progressive future adaptation”.

Obama hit both these qualities perfectly with his Third Culture background and the appearance of modern technocratic polish. Not just a politician, but a thought leader, he had the pseudo-celebrity quality of their kind, able to move smoothly from a celebrity panel about Third World microfinance, to a Jay-Z concert to a fundraiser for DIY solar panels for India to a banquet for a political hack.

Everyone who encountered him thought that he was smart because he made them feel smart. And that is the supreme duty of the modern liberal intellectual, not to be smart, but to make others feel smart. Genuine intelligence is threatening. Manufactured intelligence is soothing. And those intellectually superior progressives who need to believe that Obama is smart in order to believe that they are smart cannot stop believing in his brains without confronting the illusion of their own intelligence.

Manufactured intelligence isn’t smart. It’s stupid. It’s as stupid as building windmills for sustainable energy in places where the wind hardly blows, as stupid as calling inflated budgets “investments” and as stupid as believing that a man is smart because he can reference poverty in the Third World.

It’s easy to tell apart fake intelligence from the real thing. Manufactured intelligence fakes “smart” by playing word games. It constantly invents new terms to provide the enlightened elites with a secret language of Newspeak buzzwords that mean less than the words they are replacing. The buzzwords, Thought Leader and Change Agent, quickly take on cultist overtones and become ways of describing how the group’s leaders would like to use power, than anything about the world that they describe.

Manufactured intelligence is a consensus, not a debate. It’s not arrived at through a process, but flopped into like a warm soothing bath of nothingness. It’s correct because everyone says so. And anyone who disagrees is clearly stupid and lacks awareness of the interconnected ways that the world synergistically works. And probably doesn’t know science, Sagan or Neil deGrasse Tyson either.

Real intelligence is the product of constant debate. It is forever striving to overthrow the consensus and willing to challenge anything and everything. It uses a specialized vocabulary only to describe specialized phenomena, rather than replacing existing words with new words to describing existing phenomena in order to seem as if it understands the future better by going all 1984 on it.

Finally, manufactured intelligence is self-involved. It mistakes feeling for thinking. It deals not with how things are or even how we would like them to be, but how we feel about the way things are and what our feelings about the way things are say about what kind of people we are.

Liberal intelligence is largely concerned with the latter. It is a self-esteem project for mediocre elites, the sons and daughters of the formerly accomplished who are constantly diving into the shallow pools of their own minds to explore how their privilege and entitlement makes them view the world and how they can be good people by challenging everyone’s paradigms and how they can think outside the box by climbing into it and pulling the flaps shut behind them.

Perpetual self-involvement isn’t intelligence regardless of how many of the linguistic tricks of memoir fiction it borrows to endow its liberal self-help section with the appearance of nobility.

Liberalism isn’t really about making the world a better place. It’s about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

That is why Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize for having good intentions. His actual foreign policy mattered less than the appearance of a new transformative foreign policy based on speeches. Gore promised to be be harsher on Saddam than Bush, but no one remembers that because everyone in the bubble knows that the Iraq War was stupid… and only conservatives do stupid things.

Liberal intelligence exists on the illusion of its self-worth. The magical thinking that guides it in every other area from economics to diplomacy also convinces it that if it believes it is smart, that it will be. The impenetrable liberal consensus in every area is based on this delusion of intelligence. Every policy is right because it’s smart and it’s smart because it’s progressive and it’s progressive because smart progressives say that it is.

Progressives manufacture the consensus of their own intelligence and insist that it proves them right.

Imagine a million people walking in a circle and shouting, “WE’RE SMART AND WE’RE RIGHT. WE’RE RIGHT BECAUSE WE’RE SMART. WE’RE SMART BECAUSE WE’RE RIGHT.” Now imagine that these marching morons dominate academia, the government bureaucracy and the entertainment industry allowing them to spend billions yelling their idiot message until it outshouts everyone else while ignoring the disasters in their wake because they are too smart to fail.

Obama Threatens Race War If He Does Not Get His Way

ObamaRacerelations

Obama says if his economic plans to reduce “income inequality” are not adopted, then race relations in the United State will deteriorate further.  His Heinous vowed to act unilaterally if Congress blocks him.

As if we needed any more evidence that Obama is nothing but a Dictatorial Marxist/Fascist with delusions of a tyrannical utopia dancing in his head.  Like all Leftist tinpot dictators in recent history – Obama reaches into his bag of threats and yanks out race war as an intimidation measure to ensure he gets what he demands in terms of redistributing what is left of your wealth and income.  He also tosses down to gauntlet on Congress, vowing to act on his own decree – and daring them to task him via the threat of igniting a race war.

This is how genocides and ethnic cleanings begin, and Obama is right there instigating it all while building his Dictatorship.

OBAMA THREATENS: Race Relations “May Get Worse” if He Does Not Get His Way

Obama threatened the GOP this week that “racial tensions may get worse” if he does not get his way with the economy.
The White House Dossier reported:

President Obama said that if economic prescriptions of the type he supports to increase economic growth and reduce “income inequality” are not adopted, then race relations in the United State may deteriorate further.

“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” Obama said in an interview published Sunday by the New York Times. “Racial tensions won’t get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they’ve got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot. If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, ” he said.

With each passing day, Barack Obama looks more and more like a tinpot dictator.

If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, ” he said.

Obama said Americans in recent decades have lost a sense of security, feeling that a chance at upward mobility is being denied them. He railed against the deficit hawks in the Republican Party, suggesting cuts were being made to quickly and without proper discretion, and that “vital investments” must be preserved.

The president in recent days has suggested he will back massive new spending outlays, including funding for vast programs like infrastructure projects and early childhood education.

Obama vowed to act unilaterally if Congress blocks him.

“I’m not just going to sit back if the only message from some of these folks is no on everything, and sit around and twiddle my thumbs for the next 1,200 days,” he said.

Jihad Egyptian President Issues Conditions for American Surrender To Islam

Obama to release Gitmo Jihadists, then condemn American Christian before the UN, while Egyptian President issues more demands on America.

In the wake of a media-ignored week of worldwide American castration by Jihadist Islam, the punches from the Trojan Horse that is the Obama regime keep on coming.

Breitbart reports that Obama will release 55 Jihad terrorists from Guantanamo Bay this week:

Obama is about to release or transfer 55 Gitmo prisoners, despite reports that the Libyan believed to be behind the killing of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens was a former Guantanamo inmate transferred to Libyan custody.

Breitbart also reports Obama will condemn an American Christian before the world and denounce his supposed film ‘Innocence of Muslims” at the UN this week.  John Nolte reports:

Not only are we seeing the White House and State Department call more attention to the Mohammed-mocking “Innocence of Muslims” than any terrorist network ever could’ve hoped for, but the President’s indefensible scapegoating of the film and filmmaker to draw attention and blame away from U.S. security failures apparently knows no bounds.

On top of all that, Flopping Aces does an ace job – of tying together all  the existing and confirmed news stories to piece together the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President, is issuing demands for American capitulation and surrender to Islam – that Obama himself is making possible.

They note the story that Obama is now taking defacto orders from Morsi of Egypt as the Islamist spells out terms for US/Arab relations.

Egypt’s new Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi said the United States needed to fundamentally change its approach to the Arab world, showing greater respect for its values and helping build a Palestinian state, if it hoped to overcome decades of pent-up anger.

A former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mr. Morsi sought in a 90-minute interview with The New York Times to introduce himself to the American public and to revise the terms of relations between his country and the United States after the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, an autocratic but reliable ally.

Flopping Aces notes that the overall pattern from Egypt is to 1.) demand the US accept Islam as its own rule, 2.) calling for the suspension of free speech in the US and to put on trial anyone who offends them. 3.) Egyptian Cleric Safwat Higazi states: ‘One Of The Tenets Of The Muslim Brotherhood… Is The Islamic Caliphate And The Ruling Of The World… The Day Will Come When We Will Be The Masters Of The World’

Obama’s response to these demands given his actions this past week and this coming week appears to be unconditional surrender, complete with bow.  Obama is stretching all our necks to the sword of Jihadist Islam.

DELIBERATELY.

NY Times: Don’t Fear Sharia Law In America

But Fear Biblical Christianity – Because Conservative Christians Want a Puritanical Theocracy And Are Worse Than The Taliban

Not even going to excerpt this piece of excrement from the Times.  The NYT once again proves it is the newspaper of choice for bird cage lining and not fit for anything else.

Of note is that Mr. Stern demonstrates he is an ignorant imbecile of Sharia and has absolutely no understanding or clue about what Sharia Law actually is and what it does, what it mandates and how it is enforced.

Or – he’s an advocate of Sharia disguising himself as a concerned Jew.

Another Useful Idiot for Jihadist Islam.

H/T Weasel Zippers for the image.
