Milo and the Bookstore

Posted February 22, 2017 By John C Wright

The libels against Milo Yiannopoulos continue, but the still, small voice of truth is speaking also. Those who were deceived innocently at first now have no excuse.

Within hours, an unedited version of the year-old conversation used to libel Milo was available, as were leaks from the press revealing that the attack was deliberate, coordinated, and duplicitous.

If any man looks at the evidence, pro and con, and decides Milo is secretly an advocate for pedophilia rather than a victim of it and a public crusader whose work has put three pedophiles behind bars, I will not argue the point. At least he looked at the evidence.

A man who condemns, sight unseen, a fellow human soul, taking the word of the Fake New media as gospel, that man has let partisanship overmaster his conscience and common sense.

He has joined a mob. He has joined the Two Minute Hate.

Homeschooling with the Great Books

Posted February 22, 2017 By John C Wright

Part of an ongoing conversation in which I was not involved (I was not the one asked the question) but which bears repeating:

Do you have any advice for a man such as myself who was raised in the modern public education system but wants to raise his children with a classical education?

Another reader offered this answer:

Milo Libeled, Fools Fooled

Posted February 21, 2017 By John C Wright

The whole thing is a libel. Hope Milo sues them into bankruptcy. Found this interesting tidbit not long after hearing about the smear attack:

An anonymous journalist on 4chan posted a detailed warning of the media’s upcoming pedo-smear attack on Milo one day before it happened.

An image of the 4chan post can be found here:

H/T to gxg on Vox Day.

I have been on the receiving end of a coordinated libel Campaign like this but smaller and not this vicious.

The tactic is simple: simply edit what the victim says to make it sound like he said what you want him to say.

Then you have your Newsmen and paid trolls repeat it.

By the time the truth comes out, everyone already believes the narrative and it’s too late.

I realize that if you have never seen a fake edit job before, it will fool you. What you do to do a fake editing job is take parts of one sentence parts of one conversation and clip them to another. In this case you take a conversation about how many times two college students engaged in copulation are required to ask each other about the continued ongoing state of their consent, and then you clip in a discussion of the consent between a 17 year old and a 27 year old gay couple.

You take a sentence where the speaker uses the word ‘boy’ to refer to a seventeen-year-old and you clip it to a question when someone is asking about a 14 year old boy , clever editing makes it sound as if he is talking about lowering the age of consent to 14.

And even wary and careful viewer will be deceived.

In an unrelated news story,

Salon scrubbed it’s site of Todd Nickerson articles.

Another Reason to Celebrate

Posted February 20, 2017 By John C Wright

So this President’s  Day passed without Hillary being president, or Obama. And Trump continues to crush beneath his brass hoof that enemy of truth, life, and goodness once called the Main Stream Media, now called the Very Fake News.

If that were not enough. Read the remainder of this entry »

THE LAST CRUSADE Losing by the Marquis of Queensberry Rules

Posted February 19, 2017 By John C Wright

Be not deceived.  The so-called Culture War has been a disaster for us, a series of failures with only the briefest moments of temporary victory, won at terrible cost.

This is because the war is deeper than any matter of culture. It is an arm of an infinite struggle between angels and fallen angels, fought in every heart, in every nation, every generation.

This generation is hard pressed.

We live in the era of martyrs. More have been murdered for their love of Christ in this century than in all the previous combined, including all the famous persecutions by Stalin, Hitler, Napoleon, Henry, Mohammed, Dioclitian, Marcus Aurelius.  Christians in Muslim nations are oppressed, humiliated, harassed, slaughtered, killed, and the churches in America do nothing. The churches in Europe welcome the debasement and destruction at the invader’s hands, in the name of diversity, which, to those churches, is greater than the name of Christ.

And yet his generation encounters a slender ray of sunlight.

Your Reading Assignment

Posted February 17, 2017 By John C Wright

From the Pen of the RPGPundit:

http://therpgpundit.blogspot.com/2017/02/harry-potter-and-way-millennial.html

…..during the midst of the Twitterstorm around these riots, I saw what must be my 50000th incidence of a Leftist millennial using a “harry potter” metaphor to try to explain current politics.

Dumbledore Wouldn’t Have Let This Happen

I swear, it’s all you ever see from them.
But something happened to me last night, I had a kind of realization. It suddenly hit me WHY that is.
It’s because Harry Potter is literally all they collectively know.

Schools don’t teach history anymore.

They no longer teach the canon of Western literature.

They certainly don’t teach the Bible.
So Millennials literally have no points of common reference.  It’s not that they all just want to look like complete morons by infantilizing their political metaphor to the level of a children’s book, it’s that they have no other choice.
They’re literally bereft of the allegorical language of the West.
 …
They can no longer express or understand the set of references we have from our past, our most prized stories, and our culture’s religious quotations.  They can’t do Shakespeare, Milton, or even Mark Twain because they’ve never learned any of these …
They don’t know what happened at Hastings in 1066, at Runnymede in 1215, or even at Sarajevo in 28th June 1914…
They certainly don’t know what “the least of these” refers to or where it comes from…

Read the whole thing, and lament.

Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget…

Ironically, I only know this poem, and what it means, because I first came across a reference to it in a SF novel by Piers Anthony, and the poet, Kipling, is one that Robert Heinlein praised and recommended in his stories. Even the lightest-hearted of juvenile fiction writers, back in the day, were part of a tradition which they kept alive and passed along.
