Culture Wars ← Previous post Next post → Comments cmblake6 Dec 17 2019 at 12:13 am Words have meaning. JTC Dec 17 2019 at 12:16 am They do. Christians call up both. WayneM Dec 17 2019 at 1:30 am Words do have meaning. That’s why right-thinking people need to push back hard each time so-called “progressives” (aka cultural marxists) try to “evolve” the language by changing the meaning of well-understood words in ways that sew division and force their evil agenda. And, yes, their agenda is evil incarnate. NotYetInACamp Dec 17 2019 at 5:00 am Progressive word meaning shift is legion. As in bad. Now evil is demanded to be praised and exalted and participated in. That there agenda is so obviously (to many) what it is makes it easy for those on both sides to choose. Be the man or woman not seig heiling in the crowd doing so. Roland Deschain Dec 18 2019 at 3:43 pm Like the meaning of the word “marriage”. Hobomatt Dec 17 2019 at 12:29 am Re: Religions and non-profits. Eric Hoffer (The True Believer) nailed it. “ Things start out as a cause or movement. They move on to become businesses. Then, they evolve into rackets.” JTC Dec 17 2019 at 11:07 am Yep. Same with unions and advocacy orgs. Exactly what is going on with the NRA right now. Too Tall Dec 17 2019 at 12:42 am Skye, Perhaps you are far more lost than you realize. You need to find the road to Calvary. Pamela Dec 17 2019 at 12:59 am Oh Skye. You need to speak with the Mustard Seed. interventor Dec 17 2019 at 1:05 am If, Skye weren’t Sam’s sister, Skye would be kicked to the curb from a pickup truck. Mike-SMO Dec 17 2019 at 3:42 am Words have meaning and spell them rite or Georgie will rank on you. He doesn’t have a job like his wife so he is jealous. The President dodged a bullet by not hiring him. PaulS Dec 17 2019 at 6:57 am Calvary Christian Cavalry – CCC? Hmm… Probably need a secret hand signal 😉 Toxic Deplorable Racist B Woodman Dec 17 2019 at 7:33 am Just don’t make it the Calvary Christian Cavalry Patrol – CCCP. pyrodice Dec 18 2019 at 12:00 pm It has to be something easy enough to do with a hoof. TB. Dec 17 2019 at 7:06 am After praised, it becomes mandatory. eon Dec 17 2019 at 7:54 am Irish comic Dave Allen once had this on his BBC-TV show Dave Allen at Large; A friend of mine told me he was emigrating to Canada. When I asked him why, he said, “In this country a couple of hundred years ago, homosexuality was a hanging offense. “A hundred years ago, the penalty was flogging and heavy fines. “Fifty years ago, the fines were smaller. “Today, there aren’t even fines. “I’m leaving before they make it obligatory.” If you remember Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, it works like the Professor’s “Royal Nonesuch” show. The idea being to force “buy-in” from everybody so no one dares to criticize. The consequences are never good. clear ether eon JTC Dec 17 2019 at 10:09 am And if you don’t “buy in”, and embrace us and protect us and become us, we will kill you. Ask Hallmark about that. rickn8or Dec 17 2019 at 1:55 pm We used to have a similar saying in the Navy. cfm56dash7 Dec 17 2019 at 3:57 pm T.H. White had a bit of this in the “Once and Future King.” EVERYTHING NOT FORBIDDEN IS COMPULSORY As I recall, the protagonist left this encounter with a dim view of socialist, centrally-controlled political systems. interventor Dec 17 2019 at 10:20 pm The joke was used as the words of a British colonel explaining why he was retiring and moving overseas. Olddog Dec 17 2019 at 8:10 am Directed use of the Overton Window. Jim Smith Dec 17 2019 at 9:33 am Missed the last step Chris: “…then MANDATORY.” Kafiroon Dec 17 2019 at 9:34 am Turn and look to Calvary as there is NO cavalry coming to save you. JJ cooper Dec 17 2019 at 9:01 pm But what if he told you to turn the other cheek? jjc clayusmcret Dec 17 2019 at 10:15 am Thanks, Chris! S/F! Halley Dec 17 2019 at 11:23 am The problem with mixing politics with religious beliefs is that it makes it allowable for the Left to do the same – they can thus religiously “believe in” Socialism and “believe in” Climate Extinction or 57 genders or Our Lightbringer or The Russian Hoax and not be held responsible for their utter refusal to face empirical data (“Believe!!!”). From a policy perspective, it seems to me a most counterproductive way for the Right to gain ground. JTC Dec 17 2019 at 11:47 am But religion is not politics…except of course in Islam. And it’s not about gaining ground. It is a personal decision and bond between an individual and God. Everybody else is on their own. Unless you equate religion with church. That’s where the “business” and “racket” aspects that and I discussed above come in. Follow God to find religion and salvation. Or follow the money to find the church, politics and corruption. kadaka Dec 17 2019 at 11:42 am But Progressives have been skipping steps, staring at the 14th Amendment and others, declaring hitherto-unknown rights that were always there, therefore they are legal and must legally be tolerated, and if in your dealings you refuse to demonstrate acceptance then you shall be punished. Abortion, gay marriage, preschooler free access to contraception and clean needles, whatever. From Reuters: “A new electric-powered concept fire truck, called the CFT, has been unveiled in California, with hopes that it will replace traditional diesel fire engines” Because it’s unthinkable that houses can burn when and where a field of solar panels can’t recharge this brute, that would need another truck to haul its portable panels and/or a backup generator. But it’s accepted that to save the planet Sacrifices Must Be Made. John Dec 17 2019 at 2:41 pm I’m waiting for CP&L to cut off the power while the houses burn down. Kafiroon Dec 17 2019 at 3:18 pm So we should burn as a sacrifice to their green whatever god. Doggo Dec 18 2019 at 12:31 am From their point of view, that’s a win-win. PaulS Dec 18 2019 at 11:07 am Doesn’t CA burn up a bunch of houses each year already? I’m convinced more each day that our self proclaimed saviors are actually the facilitators of what they claim to be saving us from. I understand that’s simply evil, but apparently that’s what they are. Is there any proof to the contrary? PCChaos Dec 17 2019 at 2:44 pm What ever happened to the concept of leaving people, who were law abiding and civic-minded, the hell alone? Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Dec 17 2019 at 4:08 pm PCC, Sorry, that is not in the Libtard mindset. They MUST control EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY. John Dec 17 2019 at 5:36 pm It was sacrificed on the altar of Woke. JJ cooper Dec 17 2019 at 9:04 pm It was declared unsuitable, as it was recognized by “deplorables” alone jjc interventor Dec 17 2019 at 10:23 pm Don’t forget the irredeemables. Pamela Dec 17 2019 at 11:23 pm it will get worse http://www.iceagefarmer.com/2019/12/17/nations-scramble-for-food-shortages-blamed-on-nationalism/ Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
