If I Were the Devil by Paul Harvey

Posted January 24, 2015 By John C Wright

I heard on the radio today a Paul Harvey column from 1965, found a recording, which I offer to my readers. It shows a man of ordinary insight possessing no prophetic gifts, merely by grasping the point of the teachings of Christ can see insights and utter prophesy entirely beyond the reach of any intellectual. […]

Word Fetishes

Posted January 23, 2015 By John C Wright

A reader with the abstract yet addictive name of Concept Junkie leaves this comment regarding the case in favor of marriage, now, for some reason that does not bear close examination, called traditional marriage. (As if a three-sided triangle needed to be called a traditional triangle to distinguish it from all those square triangles with […]

Tens of Thousands of Invisible Men

Posted January 22, 2015 By John C Wright

I Google’d the words MARCH FOR LIFE today, January 22nd, and clicked the ‘news’ tab. The results were fascinating: articles from Fox News, from Vatican Radio, Breitbart News, Patheos Blog, Newbusters, WTOP‎ (our local Christian radio)  the Catholic News Agency, and Channel 7, the local ABC affiliate. Notice anything odd about that? Someone with more […]

The Nature of the Andromeda Realm is Abstract and Fluid

Posted January 20, 2015 By John C Wright

I was looking for the correct demonym for Andromeda. (Is it Andromedan or Andromedean or Andromedian? Andromedahin? Andromedaneese? Andromedine? Andromedaoi? Andromedishman?) So I typed in the word Andromedan, and I found this:

Cravenness, Idiocy, Folly, or Devilry?

Posted January 16, 2015 By John C Wright

A reader with the leonine yet nautical name of HMSLion opines: There is a nasty part of me that thinks the fastest way to counter this would be to burn a few Leftists at the stake. Get their attention. My shoulder devil often tells me the same thing, but I do not ascribe the motive […]

Blue Devils Embrace Dhimmi

Posted January 15, 2015 By John C Wright

Please note the following news stories, particularly the last one. All are recent. I am curious as to what deduction you, dear reader, deems should be drawn. Below, I will tell you my deduction, which is think is unsurprising, even obvious.

Sanctuary by Bill Whittle

Posted January 13, 2015 By John C Wright

Being from a military family and raised on post, as well as being an amateur student of history, I am unfortunately subject to the blind spot of assuming my readers know those things which, at one time, were common knowledge known to any literate schoolboy in America, such as the purpose of the rules and […]

More Links to Moral Retardation

Posted January 13, 2015 By John C Wright

Let us be clear: the Left are bigots as vile as any man who ever donned a KKK hood or the uniform of the SS. A bigot is one who judges a case before any evidence is in based on the group-identity, usually the race, of any man brought before him, and whose judgment always […]

More on Moral Retardation

Posted January 12, 2015 By John C Wright

Another evidence of Moral Retardation, aside from an utter inability to distinguish between opposites, is an utter inability to distinguish between differences of magnitude, as when, for example, the Moral Retard equates an insulting act, such as throwing a harmless metal baseball called a practice grenade into a mosque, with an act of war, such […]

On the Moral Retardation and the Islamophobic Backlash

Posted January 10, 2015 By John C Wright

Earlier in this space we were visited by two anti-Christian anti-civilization bigots and morally retarded persons who used the opportunity of the mass murders of French satirists by Jihadists to express their delight and love for all things anti-Christian and barbaric. I use the phrase ‘morally retarded’ extensively here, so allow me to explain what […]
