You're a complete idiot. READ THE DOI. Our rights come directly from GOD. As per our governmental founding documents.

And the Constitution is based on nothing BUT Biblical principles, and protecting our God given rights. Our government recognizes GOD's existence, our reliance on God and His grace/providence.

EVERYWHERE. Just visit Washington DC. /BIBLICAL ARTIFACTS AND SAYINGS ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE.

Can't you read? How sad. You completely ignore what is right in front of your face.

For 250 years our GOVERNMENT has opened every house and senate session with a Christian prayer right out of the Bible.

In God We Trust is our NATIONAL MOTTO genius.

Have you ever recited the Pledge of Allegiance? One nation, UNDER GOD.

Hellooooooo? Are you now going to insist that the Pledge contains no reference to God?

Probably. Thick as a brick. You are so threatened by the Bible and Christianity that you have to lie to hide from it. So sad that you run from the truth instead of embracing it.

No one can make an informed, intelligent decision, or form any viable, educated opinions, unless they start with the truth.

You insist on pathetic, cowardly lies. Good luck with that.

ThereforeIam:
I wonder who is on the LC downvoting bandwagon?

Lady Checkmate:
It's Peewee the Crazy hon. He actually uses socks not yet banned, (lol), to dv my comments back-to-back (no break in between-it's hilarious). He hasn't yet realized that the only thing downvotes effect is a person's spot on the Contributor's List AND ultimately it weighs in a channel's favor as it contributes to the amount of activity on a channel.
In closing, we actually appreciate the support.

ThereforeIam:
We all have issues, some of them are laughable.

Lady Checkmate:
True that. The thing is, even with issues, decent people don't go out of their way to try and hurt other people just because they disagree.

For example, there are a couple of people I don't like nor respect on DISQUS because of the way they treat/ed us Christians (I love them, but don't like'm). As a result, I avoid them and their communities. I don't stalk nor harass them and I actually wish them well and hope they come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. But I'm a Christian submitted to God and grown like that.

So, it seems we've found a way around our pending problem, i.e., Peewee the Crazy . I've whitelisted some of our long-time community members and will be adding to the list regularly. Making you guys 'trusted users' allows you to bypass the pending/held status and post immediately to threads, but still prevents Peewee from posting (thank God!).

This is our trusted list so far. If I mistakenly left you off, please let me know and I'll make that correction today.

**If any whitelisted person (sleeper sock) is accidentally whitelisted and then proves to be a troll or takes advantage of the whitelisted status, they will be immediately banned AND without notice. Sleeper socks, you've been put on notice.

The PP abortion **doctors** are often butchers. Right after an abortion, they have to get to the next one $$$$$ so the woman is expected to get right up and leave. They do not have the women back for a check. Sometimes baby body parts are left inside causing infections and even death. Often the uterus is perforated meaning she can never have children when she wants.

And they do not tell her she could get breast cancer according to some doctors who are real.

Hospitals do not want those **doctors** because of the liability.

There are no mammogram machines even though they take in a fortune.

They charge an arm and a leg for a simple infection. They prefer to do $$$$$ abortions instead.

Many of the premises are unclean...filth everywhere, blood on the cots, instruments unclean.

Again -- if you know a woman that needs care, tell her to go to a clinic, not PP. The doctors are real at clinics and they are cheaper. And they do everything PP won't do and then some.

BTW, they call it Planned Parenthood but are hostile toward any woman pregnant that wants to keep her baby and they do not offer pre-natal care.

Does anyone ever get a type of discernment with music? When you hear a song, have no clue who it is, listen to the words, they don't seem bad at all but yet have this battle inside you knowing it is not good....a horrible feeling that just won't go away.

I have had that a few times and once it was with that Cobain guy.
I had no clue who he was, my kids didn't listen to him and I only listen to Christian music. My rule when they were young was they can listen to secular but not if it has bad stuff in it...like all full of cuss words, talking all about sex or devil stuff...My personal opinion so no need for debate

Her cousin came over once and had that Kurt cobain guy's music. They were playing it and the song they were playing had nothing bad in it. In fact, it was a pretty song, not that heavy metal stuff. But as I was cleaning, they had it up loud, I got the worse feeling inside me. As if something that was not of God was there and a battle was going on. I listen to the words of the song but found nothing wrong with it. I didn't want to tell them to turn it off since I had no reason too.
But, it got so strong I finally went in there and told them..." I am so sorry but something is wrong with that song...I can't even tell you why but I really feel like something is wrong and the Holy Spirit is making me feel something isn't right.
Her cousin's face went white, and said, This is Kurt Cobain. I said, "who is that?". She said he killed himself yesterday...then she said that she had heard that he was into satanism some how.
They didn't get upset with me at all that I told them to turn it off. After she told me I said..."Wow, must be why God didn't like it much"
She then broke the tape and threw it away...LOL I didn't have to say a word, it was as if they knew as well..

I don’t think the question is whether Jesus is violent or peaceful, or whether Allah is violent or peaceful. The question is whether Christians are commanded to be violent or not, and I think we all know the answer...

The Great Commandments are to love your neighbor as yourself and love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. I wish there were more Christian extremists, who take the words of Jesus literally, and act them out on a daily basis.

However, no one hopes for more Muslim extremists. No one hopes for more Muslims to take the Koran literally.

Thanks,
Bill

p.s. Jesus has the right to be violent, because the universe is His posession, and He can do with it as He wishes, including killing people, and sending them to hell.

The Confederate soldier has the Confederate flag edited onto him and the word "@confederatetruth" written above his head, while the Union soldiers similarly sport the Coexist logo, the LGBT pride flag, the hammer and sickle, the logo of the Antifa movement, the logo of CNN, the Democrat donkey and a Black Lives Matter icon.)

Yer Nigel is a WiMPfa
Whereas the majority of “white” women (i.e. lemmings) are pretty darn happy sucking cock, pretending to like having a dick in them, making 70% of what their faggot earns for the same work, making new dickwads to inflict on the world, and being house niggers — a minority of us are disgusted with “white” male pussy faggots (WiMPFas) and what they’ve done to the world.

Since we were slaves for far longer than any other group, non-lemming White women can expect to pass from this world without ever having had a chance to rule. We, the most intelligent, most creative, least aggressive beings on the planet are now beneath not only the WiMPFas, but all the low-IQ critters that he — in his eternal faggotry and jealousy of his Creators — has placed above us. We get to watch this abysmal sideshow while the WiMPFas and his lemming whores continue forcing more White girls onto this hellhole.

He is a total lemming — an autistic faggot driven by hormones and emotions. This is his “history.” This is what makes his 1.5 ounces of flesh hard.

Get a lot of detail from them, look at the papers/online to see if it's true, and see if there's any reward offered.

If there's a reward, I'll do my civic duty and report them with name and details to the cops. I'll take the reward money! That, and in my state, there is no death sentence, so I can visit them in prison.

If there's no reward, let them continue and play dumb to the cops - just make them promise not to kill people I'm dating, friends, and/or my family members.

Quote# 136067

[From "These Bitches are Fucking Dogs Now"]

There is an epidemic of White girl dog-fucking that has gone largely unnoticed and unreported by the mainstream media.

But occasionally we get a glimpse into the underground world of dog fucking with stories like this.

A woman in Scotland who shot cellphone video of herself in a sex act involving her pet dog and whipped cream has pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing pornography.

[...]


The poor dog.

White women have become such fat whores that no decent man wants them. As a result, many are resorting to dog-fucking to get their fix of sexual attention. Animal rights organizations like PETA have remained completely silent on this shocking trend of abuse.

Shame on them.

The problem is hard to accurately calculate because these thots are keeping it going on the down low. Just like all those teachers secretely fucking their students, lots of these thots are doing the same with the pets that have been entrusted to them.

And they use a secret code to communicate that they are in the market, looking for dogs to bang.

But it can be cracked.

Whenever you see a girl using the dog filter on snap chat, it’s actually a code signal.

It means, “I’m looking to fuck dogs.”

In general, a good rule of thumb is that any single woman with a large dog is actually probably fucking the poor thing.

There’s no other reason for a woman to want a large male dog as a companion otherwise. Only men take an interest in dogs like that because they’re cool, fun to play with, great protection and our best friends…not our fuck buddies.

Be careful out there, Stormers.

Without White Sharia, these women are literally going crazy. We already knew they were capable of fucking animals when they started fucking niggers, but this is a new low…or an improvement, I’m not sure.

At least dogs are loyal, serve a function in society and are good around children.

Not sure what niggers have going for them when compared to niggers now that I think about it. Regardless, we opened the doors to all this madness when we repealed White Sharia and allowed mixed-race relationships.

It was only a small step to bestiality from there.

We need to do something though. Think of the poor doggos out there forced to copulate with these disgusting women.

Most people think of Wall St. & other wemiddlemanthegoyim types, but in reality, "business criminal" is by far the most pervasive "occupational" sector in Amerika.

Just about everyone who works for corporations are business criminals.

Most people who work for the government are business criminals (especially those who misrepresent themselves w/titles they didn't earn, like many grossly-undereducated educrats do). Nearly 100% of "your" reps are not only business criminals, they're shysters as well.

Many "self-employed" are business criminals (i.e. real estate agents, sales reps, building inspectors, etc.). Anyone describing their "work" using the words "marketing" "advertising" "sales" or "therapist" is a business criminal (the latter isn't a protected term, so any Shite-fer-Brains can use it.) This excludes anyone who doesn't charge you for services (e.g. I'm a "reality therapist.")

And I never said there was a Constitutional right to discriminate.
Which is EXACTLY what the gay couple did.

The Bakery didn't refuse to sell to them. They were long time customers, which you dishonestly ignore.

The Bakery owners had sincerely held religious beliefs, beliefs that have existed for thousands of years. That gay couple had no right attacking the bakery owners for their sincerely held religious beliefs. All they had to do was to go down the street to another bakery.

So yea, the gays had no constitutional right to discriminate against the Christian bakery.

CHRISTIANS HAVE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TOO.

My statements stand.

The fact that Christians abolished slavery is very relevant. Give credit where credit is due and tell the truth. THat's pretty relevant, wouldn't you say? Christians were the ONLY ones that did NOT perpetuate slavery since they were the ones that abolished it. A little common sense here please! wow.

ALL THESE CASES (referring to a list of Supreme Court cases that said marriage is a fundamental right) defended TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE, which is EXTREMELY RELEVANT. Traditional marriage IS by definition, marriage between a man and a woman. AND the very foundation that civilization depends upon for it's existence.

Gay marriage is NOT traditional marriage. So they have no right to discriminate against, attack, or try to force change on an institution that already exists.

Like I said, they can find their own "institutions." Don't discriminate against Christian institutions or traditional ones.

Principles of Reactionary Thought

1. People are not equal. They never will be. We reject equality in all its forms.
2. Right is right and left is wrong.
3. Hierarchy is basically a good idea.
4. Traditional sex roles are basically a good idea.
5. Libertarianism is retarded.
6. Democracy is irredeemably flawed and we need to do away with it.


______

1. People are not equal. They never will be. We reject equality in all its forms.

This is the most basic tenet of Neoreaction/Reaction. Equality is a lie. Neoreaction and Reactionary thought are fundamentally opposed to it. Aristotle said, “The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.” The idea of equality ruins organic differentiation and makes humanity into a uniform, grey mass. Inequality does not necessarily mean “superior” or “inferior” (though it very well may), but it does mean different. Things which are different are not equal. They can never be. Equality is a failed ideal. It destroys excellence. We could not be more fundamentally opposed to the notion of equality. Evola was extremely clear on rejecting equality in favor of authority and auctoritas. In Men Among the Ruins, he said:
Let us begin with the egalitarian premise. It is necessary to state from the outset that the “immortal principle” of equality is sheer nonsense. There is no need to comment on the inequality of human beings from a naturalistic point of view. And yet the champions of egalitarianism make equality a matter of principle, claiming that while human beings are not equal de facto, they are so de jure: they are unequal, and yet they should not be. [...]
I believe these are mere empty words. This is not a “noble ideal” but some-thing that, if taken absolutely, represents a logical absurdity; wherever this view becomes an established trend, it may usher in only regression and decadence. [...]
From both perspectives, it is rationally well established that the “many” not only cannot be equal, but they also must not be equal: inequality is true de facto only because it is true de jure and it is real only because it is necessary. That which the egalitarian ideology wished to portray as a state of “justice” is in reality a state of injustice, according to a perspective that is higher and beyond the humanitarian and democratic rhetorics. In the past, Cicero and Aristotle argued along these lines. Conversely, to posit inequality means to transcend quantity and admit quality. It is here that the two notions of the individual and the person are differentiated.

If Reaction/Neoreaction is against anything, it is against equality. If someone argues for equality, they are not a reactionary/neoreactionary, but something else.

2. Right is right and left is wrong.

To reactionaries, this is axiomatic. The phrase was popularized by Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddhin, who along with Carlyle and Evola, is part of the central canon of neoreactionary thought. If someone disagrees with this phrase, they may be a perfectly delightful person, someone I’d enjoy having tea with, but they would not be a reactionary. Moldbug cites this phrase in his “Journey from Mises to Carlyle” post. In “A Gentle Introduction to Unqualified Reservations,” he says:
On the other hand, it is also quite easy to construct a very clean value system in which order is simply good, and chaos is simply evil. I have chosen this path. It leaves quite a capacious cavity in the back of my skull, and allows me to call myself a reactionary. To you, perhaps, it is the dark side. But this is only because the treatment is not yet complete.

Again, basic stuff. He also writes:
The left is chaos and anarchy, and the more anarchy you have, the more power there is to go around. The more orderly a system is, the fewer people get to issue orders. The same asymmetry is why corporations and the military, whose system of hierarchical executive authority is inherently orderly, cluster to the right.


3. Hierarchy is basically a good idea.
In general, hierarchy promotes stability, order, direction, cohesion, and so on. Reactionaries object to the rigid hierarchies of totalitarianism, which turn men into cogs in a machine. (See Fascism Viewed from the Right by Julius Evola for a reactionary critique of fascism, or chapter four of Men Among the Ruins.) If you have trouble distinguishing reactionary thought from fascism, you must read chapter four of Men Among the Ruins, or you will never get it. Rather than advocating rigid hierarchies that crush human autonomy, reactionaries support the “organic State,” which Evola describes:
Every society and State is made of people; individual human beings are their primary element. What kind of human beings? Not people as they are conceived by individualism, as atoms or a mass of atoms, but people as persons, as differentiated beings, each one endowed with a different rank, a different freedom, a different right within the social hierarchy based on the values of creating, constructing, obeying, and commanding. With people such as these it is possible to establish the true State, namely an antiliberal, antidemocratic, and organic State. The idea behind such a State is the priority of the person over any abstract social, political, or juridical entity, and not of the person as a neuter, leveled reality, a mere number in the world of quantity and universal suffrage.

The goal of the organic State is to foster “a process of individuation and of progressive differentiation” of persons, rather than a universalist, leveling aesthetic. Some people are natural leaders, others are not. This is not about all reactionaries fantasizing ourselves to be natural leaders, destined for a spot up the totem poll Come the Revolution. The idea is creating a society that offers a pleasant differentiation and individuation from top to bottom. There are reasons why this actually makes being at the bottom a better and more interesting experience than it is now, but that’s a whole ‘nother topic.

4. Traditional sex roles are basically a good idea.

It’s tiresome to go into this one, since the feminists are so rabid about it, but reactionaries basically approve of traditional sex roles. In traditional societies, women did in fact take on some jobs and roles that might be considered careers by today’s standards. They were not all stay-at-home wives, and even if they were, many were extremely industrious. I’m not sure why staying at home, making clothing, cooking, gardening, and raising children is any less empowering or worthwhile than male activities like digging ditches, welding, or sitting at an office desk on a computer all day.

Conversely, if a man chooses to stay home and raise children, many other men will think less of him. No amount of progressive propaganda and reeducation camps will change this, because it’s hard-coded into our brains through millions of years of evolution. Men respect other men who go out into the world and do masculine things. Similarly, the pressure to conform to gender norms is stronger in all-girl schools than in mixed schools, exploding the myth that it is men who instigate and police gender norms, to the detriment of women. People can and do create bizarro-world bubbles where these roles are turned upside-down, but they are not very stable.

Women are less happy today than they were 40 years ago, despite all the alleged advances made by feminism during that time. One reactionary woman I’ve spoken with has said that feminism is fundamentally dishonest because it is a movement for women without children, while it portraying itself as helpful to all women. Another woman says, “I would prefer that norms strongly support functional families and that anyone who wants to do something else has to swim upstream”, which is a fair summation of the reactionary position.

5. Libertarianism is retarded.

Many reactionaries are post-libertarians, i.e., not libertarians. A rite of passage into reaction/neoreaction is the renunciation of libertarianism. I was never a libertarian, so it’s taken me a bit of time to fully understand the relationship between libertarianism and neoreaction, but I understand it now. Libertarians make personal freedom axiomatic, and refuse to consider the negative externalities of that freedom to traditional structures like society and the family. This is anathema to reactionaries.

Neoreaction has a close relationship with traditionalism, which upholds social obligations, norms, some degree of group conformity/homogeneity, and so on. Neoreaction has libertarian qualities, such as advocating for a smaller government and the exclusion of government from traditionally private spheres, but rejects libertarianism overall.

Libertarianism, if it could work at all, would only be suitable for a portion of the population, maybe 15-20%, who are willing to go Galt and lock themselves in a metaphorical fortress against the world. If a libertarian society would leave many out in the cold, libertarians seem not to care. Meanwhile, reactionaries foster community, family, and social cohesion. A couple months ago, I stated, “The “socialism” that traditionalism advocates is family and friends helping each other of their own free will.” That sums up the reactionary position on mutual assistance, which is theoretically compatible with libertarianism, but is not compatible with the mood and spirit of libertarianism as it is in fact lived and practiced. Also, reactionaries tend to view libertarians as excessively materialistic.

For a final tidbit of food for thought on this one, someone on Twitter said, “if you took libertarianism but made the basic social unit the family rather than the individual you would come close to what neoreaction is”. Debatable, but interesting.

6. Democracy is irredeemably flawed and we need to do away with it.

Democracy has been a disaster. Read Democracy: the God That Failed for an explanation. If you have not read at least some of this book, you will be lost. At the very least, reading some of it will give you exposure to serious academic discourse on the failure of democracy. Dismissing anything anti-democratic as “fascism” simply marks you as an idiot, a man of no intellectual depth. At least people like Scott Alexander are capable of going a little deeper and providing a defense of democracy that avoids relying on the fascist boogeyman.

That’s it.

I considered including “opposition to the Cathedral,” here, but decided to leave it out since “Cathedral” is just a lame neologism to outsiders, and I want my posts to be digestible by normal people with no prior exposure to reactionary thought. Also, the question of what the Cathedral is, exactly, is a very complicated one.

I limit the premises to six because I want them to be definitional and exhaustive — anyone who does agree with all six of these premises is almost certainly a reactionary, or at least on the Far Right, while anyone who disagrees with any one of them is almost certainly not a reactionary. We have to draw the line somewhere. Having in-groups and out-groups is another premise of reactionary thought.

"Recently a strongly antiabortion Southern Baptist woman sat across from me in a counseling room and said, "I'm not like all those other women out there in your waiting room." She said that, unlike all our other patients, she had "no other choice."

The reason that her abortion was morally permissible? Because she and her lover were married, but (in the words of an old C&W standard) not to each other."

I still wonder whether she still would have seen herself as uniquely special had she known that among the \"other women\" on that day were a 15 year-old rape survivor, and a young single mother of two children whose cancer treatment could not be continued while she remained pregnant.

But it has been my experience that the answer very likely would have been "yes."

(Extract from A gentle introduction to Unqualified Reservations (part 1))

The triangle of professors, bureaucrats, and public opinion is stable, because the professors teach as well as advise. Of course, there is a time lag. The system experiences some strain. But it will stay together, so long as the polarity does not randomly reverse - ie, because Cthulhu decides to suddenly swim right rather than left.

But no. Cthulhu may swim slowly. But he only swims left. Isn't that interesting?

In the history of American democracy, if you take the mainstream political position (Overton Window, if you care) at time T1, and place it on the map at a later time T2, T1 is always way to the right, near the fringe or outside it. So, for instance, if you take the average segregationist voter of 1963 and let him vote in the 2008 election, he will be way out on the wacky right wing. Cthulhu has passed him by.

Where is the John Birch Society, now? What about the NAACP? Cthulhu swims left, and left, and left. There are a few brief periods of true reaction in American history - the post-Reconstruction era or Redemption, the Return to Normalcy of Harding, and a couple of others. But they are unusual and feeble compared to the great leftward shift. Nor, most important for our hypothesis, did they come from the universities; in the 20th century, periods of reaction are always periods of anti-university activity. (McCarthyism is especially noticeable as such. And you'll note that McCarthy didn't exactly win.)

The principle applies even in wars. In each of the following conflicts in Anglo-American history, you see a victory of left over right: the English Civil War, the so-called "Glorious Revolution," the American Revolution, the American Civil War, World War I, and World War II. Clearly, if you want to be on the winning team, you want to start on the left side of the field.

And we are starting to piece the puzzle together. The leftward direction is, itself, the principle of organization. In a two-party democratic system, with Whigs and Tories, Democrats and Republicans, etc, the intelligentsia is always Whig. Their party is simply the party of those who want to get ahead. It is the party of celebrities, the ultra-rich, the great and good, the flexible of conscience. Tories are always misfits, losers, or just plain stupid - sometimes all three.

And the left is the party of the educational organs, at whose head is the press and universities. This is our 20th-century version of the established church. Here at UR, we sometimes call it the Cathedral - although it is essential to note that, unlike an ordinary organization, it has no central administrator. No, this will not make it easier to deal with.

This strange chiral asymmetry implies some fundamental difference between right and left. What is that difference? What does it even mean to be left rather than right? How can an entire system of independent thinkers and institutions, without any central coordinating agency, recognize that everyone should go left rather than right?

(She's talking about gay people being killed)

Because it's not murder, it's capital punishment. I advocate all laws of Allah because He is the Creator and He says to do it. Muslims are the slaves of Allah and do as He says. Anyone who doesn't is the enemy of Allah.

Believe what you will The sad thing is there are two places that are inclusive irregardless of who you are or what you have said or done. One of those is prison, and the other is Hell.
