G-d Damn You Barbara Spectre!

Image
Unless you’re pretty deep in the so-called “Alt-Right” movement, or at least actively monitoring it, you’re probably scratching your head and saying “WHO?”Let me introduce you to someone who, IMHO, rises to the level of Benedict Arnold.On two fronts.

Barbara Spectre is a Jewish woman living in Europe, who – based on the evidence I’ve been able to gather – is on the Left-side of the political spectrum.Given that the spectrum in Europe is shifted significantly leftward from that in the US, that’s certainly putting her on the far-Left in terms of the US scale.Now let me be clear: she is entitled to believe this, even if I would vehemently disagree with her Leftism as contrary to the Judaism I learned.Quoting a great essay, Why Jews Support the Democratic Party, by Evan Sayet (bolding added): Put simply, the more Jewish is the person, the more they reject the policies of the Democrat Party.This should not be the least bit surprising as Modern Liberalism – the dominant ideology of to…

Videos and thoughts about Tommy Robinson's arrest

Please forgive that this is not quite as organized as I attempt to make most posts; I’m trying to bang this out to get it out ASAP.But some thoughts before I list the videos.

I have communicated with a few people I know in the UK; Tommy is perceived as a virulent racist – definitely he is portrayed as such on the Wikipedia page about him (and yet, I keep in mind that these pages can be edited, and multiple figures on the Right have commented over the years about how their entries have been relentlessly twisted by SJW editors to put them in a bad light).Now, having watched a number of his videos, I have not personally seen an indication of that racism… but in fairness I am only a novice when it comes to my knowledge of the man. Here’s a lengthy and substantial interview of Robinson; with the caveat that anyone can appear reasonable in an interview with a little effort, I don’t think the man comes across like a raving racist:

Teflon Intellects

Back in the days of “Ronaldus Maximus” – President Ronald Reagan – people would derisively refer to him as “The Teflon President” because nothing of the mud the enemedia slung at him seemed to stick in the minds of voters.To their utter rage.And, truthfully, mine, considering that back then I was also a die-hard liberal (please cross reference my most recent “Red Pill Journey” essay (#5) – and please do read the others too).

But over the course of the intervening decades I changed.I learned new things, had That’s weird… experiences which prompted me to investigate, learn, and adjust my beliefs to those that seemed to make more sense in the light of those new experiences and that new evidence.Learning, growing, developing, changing are, I believe, all part of the human experience.A static mind is, IMHO, a waste of G-d’s gift of intellect… and beliefs, in the face of new evidence, need to be questioned even if, at the end, the belief stands the trial.
