A Few Thoughts

I was looking around for something to try my hand at fisking (as you can tell, Cato and I are still working on the look and feel of both the blog and our respective writing styles) but I couldn't find anything that really jumped out at me. So this post will mostly just ramble a bit on some of what is currently transpiring/Things That Interest Publius.

Sure there are many things going on right now that do lend themselves to fisking. The Verge's idiotic recent article on American fascism comes to mind. Many words expended to expound a mixture of the blindingly obvious and PC finger shaking. One of the many dirty secrets (a very poorly kept one I might add) around the liberal left is their comfort around Totalitarianism (capital T), whether is is Communist or Fascist in nature.

This is ever more clearly shown in the recent spate of articles around North Carolina's recently passed legislation aimed at protecting religious freedom form the Gaystopo, as well as preventing men from using the women's restroom. These are eminently fiskable in their own right, showing a marvelous double standard around just what freedom mean, plus a massive dose of the usual liberal hatred of religion and and people of faith. I especially love how every article on North Carolina starts with some variation of it having just passed an "anti-LGBT" bill.  "Anti-T" bill would at least be closer semantically.

I applaud Governor Pat McCrory's actions, and hope that he and his administration can withstand the surge of hatred and intolerance (we can use these words too) that is coming down on him for his principled stand against allowing a small minority of deeply perverted and twisted individuals to dictate state policy and attack people of faith.

Make no mistake, the culture war is real and the other side is ruthless in their fight against us. Now is not the time for moderation, but for attack. Already the incest lobby is gathering its strength and allies, using the same arguments to justify acceptance that the homosexuals used. It will not stop with gay marriage. Liberals want marriage to be defined so broadly that it means nothing, they rejoice in sick, twisted behaviors, and shattered lives.

The majority of the science-fiction community(being defined as the major publishing houses other than Baen, plus the great circle-jerk of authors exploring sad seals being clubbed by evil capitalists) is currently working hard to avoid confronting the fact that one of its most noted authors was a perverted child abuser. I anticipate this year's Hugo awards being vastly entertaining as the Rabid Puppies and Sad Puppies build on last year's success and continue to punch up against the pathetic liberal message fiction dominating the shelves, that makes it difficult to find anything worth reading at Barnes and Noble. I personally care very little for an author's socio-economic beliefs so long as they can tell an entertaining story. Eric Flint (card carrying Trotskyite) and Larry Correia (probably too libertarian to have a card) have both entertained me immensely over the years.

This election, both in what has been written and what my conversations with people have involved, has shown very clearly just how bereft of logic, common sense, and decency liberals and quite a few alleged conservatives are. Most of all, if anyone needed any further proof that liberals are poorly educated and historically illiterate...I give you Bernie Sanders and His Idiot Supporters. I have a long post coming soon on the historical illiteracy of liberals...no new ground really but a subject that just keeps on giving.

Partial Guide to Alt-Right Websites

Its an interesting time to be an American, especially if you are interested in politics and socioeconomics. The Internet has enabled many other-wise marginalized voices to be heard, and communities to sprout up around shared beliefs and goals.

One of the largest and fastest growing of these segments is the loose collection of websites known collectively as the "alt-right." While differing in many respects and exhibiting a tremendous degree of variety in their approach and tactics, the alt-right is largely unified around a respect for tradition and masculinity and is committed to largely libertarian ideals.  

There is much written that I do not endorse on these sites, but I do endorse a large portion of it and feel that Reality Hammer belongs in the same general political spectrum. Disagreements among intelligent men are nothing new, and are a very healthy thing, so long as these disagreements are carried on by rational adults who use the tools of logic to debate and disagre…

Fisking Sean Penn's Idiotic Editorial on Castro's Death

Today I was gifted with this astonishing (but not surprising) piece of idiocy from one of America’s foremost lovers of oppressive dictatorships and the men who run them, Comrade Sean Penn! He posted a rambling piece at the Daily Beast full of idiocy and whiney complaints about those MEANIES who were happy that Castro is dead. For good measure he doubled down about Castro: The Defender of The Poor People and the meanies who don’t like him. Those same MEANIES didn't vote for the Anointed Pantsuit either, and so Comrade Penn has a lot on his scrawny little libprog chest that he needs to get off. So let's have some fun!
My comments are in bold,Comrade Penn’s are initalics.
I was an American abroad, working overseas on this recent election night 2016. By midnight I was able to put myself to sleep, confidently, arrogantly, supremely certain that the election would go to Hillary Clinton, if not the Democrats at large.
Comrade Penn is kind enough to actually admit a by-now very evident t…

(Part 3): SJWs Have Always Lied. A Fisking of Soviet Civilization(1952) by Corliss Lamont

Continuing on with this massive fisking of Corliss Lamont’s 1952 book on the Soviet Union, this week’s installment is going to focus on Comrade Lamont’s explanation as to why Communism is a phenomenal system to live under and is totally different from fascism, which sucks to live under. It's a very nuanced interpretation of the two socialist philosophies and one that will require not only all of Comrade Lamont’s intellectual brainpower but also the complete ignorance and credulity of the reader. Let’s see how he does.

On Page 228, Comrade Lamont identifies ten “fundamental differences” between Soviet socialism and fascism. This is on the second page of the chapter and represents his efforts to set the tone for the remainder of the chapter. Essentially, if he can get the big whoppers swallowed first, the remaining smaller ones will go down easier. So let's take a look at the ten differences that Lamont claims separate the evils of totalitarian fascist socialism from the saintly …
