In the first half of the 20th century, the word “gay” was synonymous with “happy” or “joyous.” Now it refers to homosexuality. How did such a formerly innocent, innocuous term come to be associated with something as unsavory and unsanitary as queer buttsex?
From the Wikipedia article on the word “Gay”:
“A passage from Gertrude Stein’s Miss Furr & Miss Skeene (1922) is possibly the first traceable published use of the word to refer to a homosexual relationship. According to Linda Wagner-Martin (Favored Strangers: Gertrude Stein and her Family (1995)) the portrait, ‘featured the sly repetition of the word gay, used with sexual intent for one of the first times in linguistic history…'”
From the Wikipedia article on Gertrude Stein:
“Gertrude Stein, the youngest of a family of five children, was born in 1874 in Allegheny, Pennsylvania (merged with Pittsburgh in 1907), to well-educated German-Jewish immigrant parents.” [Emphasis added. -IA]
As can be readily seen, use of the word “gay” as a euphemism for homosexuality is yet another instance of the jewing of the English language.
“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” –attributed to Aristotle
More evidence of how gelded conservatives are:
Instead of bemoaning the fact that no one had the cojones to throw those obnoxious fudgepackers out on their disease-ridden keesters, she takes pride in how “tolerant” (tolerant meaning cowardly) the middle-American patrons of the bar were. Is it any wonder conservatives have been unable to stop the disintegration of white societies when they accept all the tacit ground rules laid down by their supposed adversaries, in this case the assumption that public displays of homosexuality should be tolerated?
The only thing she gets halfway right is that, yes, the mainstream media does have an agenda to normalize and promote homosexuality, though she avoids going into exactly why the media has been pursuing this agenda for the last few decades.
But hey, at least she’s cute and fills out a bikini real nice…
You have to wonder if conservatism isn’t so washed-up at this point that it’s resorting to sex appeal (bikinis, former beauty queens) to keep men on board.
The other day I was telling a relative that my 1961 edition of the Encylcopedia Britannica contained only two short paragraphs on the holocaust out of its 24 volumes of fine print, and that the holocaust wasn’t even referred to as “the holocaust.” I pointed out that the series of events now known as “the holocaust” (or sometimes as the “shoah”) didn’t have its own entry, being only briefly mentioned in the articles on Adolf Hitler and the Jews. She found this incredible.
The point I was trying to make is that back then “the holocaust” was, to use the words of French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen, merely a “footnote of history,”* whereas today it has become the central event of WWII, and indeed, of the entire 20th century. Few people know that Stalin and his Jewish commissar Lazar Kaganovich deliberately starved 10 million Ukrainian peasants to death while Western Europe and the United States turned a blind eye, but every schoolchild today “knows” that Adolf Hitler and the Germans killed 6 million perfectly innocent Jews in gas chambers. How did this popularization of the holocaust come about? Simple. Starting in the 1970s, Jews, using their disproportionate power and influence in the mass media and academia, began a relentless propaganda campaign. That’s how.
My relative wanted to know who the publishers of the Encyclopedia Britannica were in 1961. I guess what she was driving at was that maybe the encyclopedia was owned by Nazi sympathizers. Well, after doing some research on the net, we didn’t find any evidence that its owners were secret Nazis, but we did discover that since 1996, the Encyclopedia Britannica has been owned by Jewish billionaire Jacqui (Jacob) Eli Safra! Safra is a movie producer and the heir of a Jewish banking family. Additionally, starting in May 2001, Britannica’s CEO was an Israeli Jew named Ilan Yeshua, who had previously worked for the Tel Aviv-based educational technology firm Centre for Educational Technology, which was aquired by Safra’s Britannica.com. Yet more evidence of how pervasive is the Jewish domination of our mass media.
If anyone out there has access to both a 1995 and a 1998 (or later) version of the Encyclopedia Britannica, I would be very curious to hear what you discover when comparing the articles on, say, Israel, particularly in regards to the neutrality of its portrayal of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
* UPDATE: According to this article, it would seem that Le Pen didn’t actually say that the holocaust was a “footnote of history,” but rather, that the alleged homicidal gas chambers were a minor “detail of history.” Well, if Le Pen didn’t say it, I will: the holocaust is a mere footnote of history.

“For the race, everything. For those outside the race, nothing.” –Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA)
Patriotard radio talk show host Jason Bermas, filling in for Alex Jones today, responded to a caller’s suggestion that La Raza might be a racist organization* by stating that in his opinion, it wouldn’t be fair to classify most of La Raza‘s membership as racist. These were his exact words:
“What La Raza stands for at the upper echelons … is absurd. But at the lower levels, people don’t understand what it is. […] They don’t understand that it’s all corrupt at the top. They don’t understand what the real message is. I don’t want to say every member of La Raza is automatically a racist. I would say every member of La Raza that doesn’t realize that there’s race implications and race bias is ignorant. And there are some at the top that are openly racist.”
Race “implications”? Only “some” are openly racist? The Spanish phrase La Raza literally means “the race” and refers to Chicanos (mestizos of Mexican origin living in the United States). La Raza is an explicitly racialist organization and movement. Every member at every level fully understands this; I mean, their movement is called “the race,” fer crying out loud! How much more obvious can it get? Stop lying to your listeners, you gutless patriotard snake oil salesman.
He who pays the piper calls the tune. Find out who pays Alex Jones’s bills.
Support real alternative media, like
October Sun Films [link now dead] (who produced the documentary from which the video clip above was taken), New Century Productions, or the websites in my blogroll. Don’t give your money to hucksters like Alex Jones and Jason Bermas. Contrary to one of their slogans, patriotard broadcasters don’t think you’re intelligent enough to “handle the truth,” as evidenced by Jason Bermas’s whitewash of La Raza.
* La Raza can refer to the National Council de La Raza, but it also refers more generally to the La Raza movement to take over the Southwestern United States (or Reconquista, as its adherents call it).
Canadian schools sent brochures from climate change skeptics
by Mike De Souza, Canwest News Service
Published: Sunday, May 04, 2008
OTTAWA — An American think tank has sent out more than 11,000 brochures and DVDs to Canadian schools urging them to teach their students that scientists are exaggerating how human activity is the driving force behind global warming.
The Chicago-based group, the Heartland Institute, said its goal is to ensure that students are provided with a “balanced” education about “an important and controversial issue,” but critics, including a leading climate scientist, described it as a campaign of misinformation.
The mail out, sent in February, included results from international surveys of climate scientists conducted in 1996 and 2003 along with a 10-minute DVD called Unstoppable Solar Cycles, The Real Story of Greenland.
“It took me a while to figure out what they were up to,” said Eric Betteridge, who teaches at Hillcrest High School in Ottawa.
The Heartland Institute says that it purchased a database list of addresses of 11,250 schools from across the country, including about 10,000 private or faith-based schools, for a massive mail campaign aimed at Canadian children in all provinces.
“All the kids in our schools are being taught that climate change is a serious crisis and that we’ve got to reduce our CO2 and they’re being taught (that) quite falsely,” said Jay Lehr, the science director at the Heartland Institute who sent the package. “We would like to educate people and basically give them the other side of the issue, so we send out materials only in hope of a little balance.”
The Sierra Club of Canada said that the Heartland Institute’s information was far from being balanced. [The Heartland Institute didn’t claim the information they were providing was balanced. They said they were providing the information in order to balance out the one-sided chicken-little environmentalist scare propaganda that’s being disseminated through the schools and the mainstream media. It’s not the same thing. The Heartland Institute has no more of an obligation to be “balanced” in its treatment of global warming than the Sierra Club does.-IA]
“It’s alarming that an American think tank is distributing misinformation on the most important issue of our time in Canadian schools, to actually create an illusion that there is a scientific debate,” said Emilie Moorhouse, a spokeswoman for the environmental group. [This has become the retort of choice for cowards and charlatans who are unwilling or unable to defend or substantiate their assertions. If you can’t beat your opponent in a debate, then just shut him out of it, or better yet, shut down debate altogether.-IA]
The Heartland Institute describes itself as a national nonprofit research and education organization whose mission is “to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems. Such solutions include parental choice in education, choice and personal responsibility in health care, market-based approaches to environmental protection, privatization of public services and deregulation in areas where property rights and markets to a better job than government bureaucracies.”
The brochure and DVD said that scientists were “deeply divided” about “the notion that climate change is mostly the result of human activities.” It also suggested that the sun was the main factor behind recent warming recorded on the planet.
The package does not make reference to the conclusions reached by governments and scientists from around the world in their 2007 assessment of the latest peer-reviewed research on climate change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change wrote in its summary of a Nobel Peace Prize-winning report that global warming is unequivocal and that there is a 90-per-cent chance it is being caused by humans.
After reviewing the Heartland Institute package, Mr. Betteridge said he was left feeling both amused and distressed that someone would try to promote this material to children in the classroom.
“I think I would be concerned because it was well written, and if somebody hadn’t been aware of what the general consensus is among climatologists about global warming, you would begin to think, ‘Wow, somebody’s giving me the wrong story here.”
John Stone, the senior Canadian researcher on the IPCC bureau, said that the 2007 assessment was cautious in its projections about impacts such as melting ice sheets among others.
“If anything, the IPCC assessments are conservative and this one (in 2007) was particularly conservative in hindsight,” said Mr. Stone. “Scientists don’t like to go out on a limb — they don’t like to be alarmist because they feel that they might be proven wrong.” [You can’t get much more alarmist than predicting the end of the world, which several of the IPCC scientist-priests have been doing publicly and with a great flair for drama.-IA]
The IPCC concluded that the contribution of solar variability to recent global warming was about a tenth of the impact of increased greenhouse gases, Mr. Stone said.
The Heartland Institute, which has received $791,000 in funding from Exxon-Mobil since 1998 according to a recent analysis by Greenpeace USA [And where do Greenpeace and the Sierra Club get their funding from, I wonder?-IA], also mailed out its package to 200 influential Canadian decision-makers, including Finance Minister Jim Flaherty.
Moorhouse from the Sierra Club suggested that this might explain why the government has adopted climate change policies that were criticized for being soft on the oil and gas industry.
“It looks like they’re listening to the Heartland Institute and other oil-industry-sponsored think tanks and they’re following their curriculum rather than listening to the vast majority of what the scientific community is saying around the world,” she said. [It’s funny how some seem to believe that arriving at the truth is a democratic process. Don’t judge a theory on its merits, just judge it on how many adherents it has. If enough experts agree that the earth is flat, then the earth must indeed be flat.-IA]
A spokesperson for the Heartland Institute said that no company has ever contributed more than five per cent of the think tank’s total revenues and no industry sector contributed more than 10 per cent of its revenues.
“Nobody buys research,” said Dan Miller, the institute’s executive vice-president and publisher. “That isn’t the way it works. The funding follows the intellectual capacity, the intellectual integrity. It’s not the other way around.”
Although Flaherty’s office sent a letter of acknowledgment to the Heartland Institute confirming that the comments would be brought to the minister’s attention, spokesperson Chisholm Pothier said that the government is not taking advice from people who question climate change.
[Note: I will be putting together a list of articles, books, and videos which debunk the hypothesis of man-made global warming. Stay tuned.]
German Jewish leader backs publication of Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’
BERLIN – A ban in Germany on Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf should be lifted so the book can be published with editorial comments, a Jewish leader said on Friday.
“I’m basically in favor of the book being made publicly accessible with annotation,” Stephan Kramer, general secretary of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, told German radio.
Speaking on broadcaster Deutschlandfunk, Kramer said he believed such an edition should be made available online, where the book can already be read in most countries. (*)
Hitler dictated the work to his aide Rudolf Hess while in prison in Bavaria following the failed Munich “Beer Hall” putsch of 1923. It outlines a doctrine of German racial supremacy and ambitions to annex huge areas of the Soviet Union.
Kramer said the Central Council of Jews was ready to help with the annotating, and might even ask the Bavarian state government, which holds the rights to the book, to lift the ban.
In Germany, it is illegal to distribute the tome except in special circumstances. Nazi symbols like the swastika and performing the stiff-armed Hitler salute are also outlawed.
Published in 1925, Mein Kampf (My Struggle) became a school textbook after Hitler seized power in 1933. All German newlyweds also received a copy.
A number of historians have called on Germany to lift the ban in recent years, some of them Jewish.
Now, purchasers who can prove an academic purpose may secure an existing copy. Otherwise though, sales are banned and Bavaria, which was granted the German rights to the book by the postwar occupying powers, refused to authorize new copies.
Deutschlandfunk said Bavarian authorities had rejected the idea of loosening the restrictions on publication.
“[To do so] would get enormous political attention worldwide, and probably be met with incomprehension,” it quoted the Bavarian finance ministry as saying in a statement.
(*) An English-language, non-annotated version of Mein Kampf is available online at http://www.hitler.org/writings/Mein_Kampf/
From the April 3, 2008 edition of The Gazette:
“Feminism marches on: The newest role model for young teen girls is Jenny Green, who takes a knife to boys who are mean to her. She’s the heroine — I guess — of Jenny Green’s Killer Junior Year, a teen novel due out this fall from Simon & Schuster. The N.Y Post found some publicity material that explains that Jenny is a ‘spoiled teen princess’ who ‘discovers just how despicable the male gender can be – with the lying, the cheating and the utter disrespect – (and) decides to make them pay… with their lives.'”
