A sick and failing society

We’ve been told that woe will be visited upon those who call good evil and evil good. Which is exactly what the American Psychological Association is doing in declaring masculinity to be bad and homosexuality to be good.

The American Psychological Association has issued its first official warning against toxic masculinity. The new “Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men,” marks the first-ever report published by the association aimed at helping practitioners care for their male patients “despite social forces that can harm mental health.”

Citing more than 40 years of research, the APA warns against the “masculinity ideology,” which it defines as “a particular constellation of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population, including: anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure risk and violence.”

“Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health,” according to the 36-page report, featured in January’s issue of Monitor on Psychology.

Conforming to the norms of the “masculinity ideology” can result in suppressing emotions and masking distress in young boys as well more risk-taking and aggressive behavior and a lack of willingness to seek out help. The report additionally contends this can lead to traits like homophobia and pave the way for sexual harassment, bullying and violence against others and themselves.

This is just more of the inversive wizardry that pervades a sick and failing society that has abandoned both God and the truth. It’s going to get worse. You can count on that. You can absolutely count on that.

God no longer blesses America

When God leaves a nation to its well-merited fate, evil rushes to fill the vacuum:

Witchcraft is thriving in the US, with an estimated 1.5 million Americans now identifying as witches – more than the total number of Presbyterians. As Christianity declines across the country, paganism has swung to the mainstream, with witchcraft paraphernalia for sale on every high street and practises normalised across popular culture. In the past two years, it has also become darkly politicised.

Dakota Bracciale, a 29-year-old transgender/queer witch and co-owner of Catland Books and witch shop in Brooklyn, is pleased with the outcome of the ritual hex placed on US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in October. The curse, carried out from Catland Books, was well attended by witches, atheists ad humanists – and was followed around the country on social media.

Millennials, says Bracciale, are looking for spiritualism outside traditional religion. “The hex centres on the notion that we live in a universe of chaos, entropy, destruction, death, decay with a final ending of oblivion – scientists are telling us. So the witch does everything for themselves – there is no other help in this universe of decay and chaos. If you don’t get in the driver’s seat things will just get worse,” the witch said.

I used to wonder how the Israelites could see such wonders and then turn around and whore after golden calves and false gods. Having witnessed the decline of America from its bicentennial celebration to its current state, I don’t wonder about it anymore.

Either Americans will repent and restore their nation or America will be destroyed.

For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen because they spoke and acted against the LORD, defying His glorious presence. The expression on their faces testifies against them, and like Sodom they flaunt their sin; they do not conceal it; woe to them, for they have brought disaster upon themselves.

Tell the righteous it will be well for them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their labor. Woe to the wicked; disaster is upon them! For they will be repaid with what their hands have done.Youths oppress My people, and women rule over them.

O My people, your guides mislead you; they turn you from your paths.
– Isaiah 3:8-12

At least no one can call them homophobic

The Boy Scouts survived world wars and the invention of the airplane, the computer, and video games. But they couldn’t survive SJW convergence:

The Boy Scouts of America is considering filing for bankruptcy protection as it faces dwindling membership and escalating legal costs related to lawsuits over how it handled allegations of sex abuse. Leaders of the Boy Scouts, one of the country’s largest youth organizations, have hired law firm Sidley Austin LLP for assistance with a possible chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, according to people familiar with the matter.

It didn’t take a rocket science to grasp that permitting gays to go camping with young boys was going to lead to sexual abuse and parents refusing to render their sons vulnerable to the oh-so-tender ministrations of the local pedos.

Convergence is corporate cancer.

Vive la France

The Yellow Vest protests against the Macron government spread:

More than one hundred ambulance drivers protested in Paris Monday morning, as France’s President Emmanuel Macron faces mounting pressure from populous movements inspired by the Yellow Jackets. Paramedics blocked the Place de la Concorde near the National Assembly in downtown Paris at 5:30 am local time, blaring their sirens and holding banners condemning government-mandated industry reforms, reports France Info.

Protesters set tires on fire in the street while others chanted “Macron resign!” according to the Associated Press…. Civic action against Macron’s reforms has also been picked up by high school pupils, with the Ministry of Education confirming that at least one hundred schools across France — in Marseille, Toulouse, Côte d’Azur (the French Riviera), and Seine-Saint-Denis — have been totally or partially shut down Monday morning by protesting students.

The French youths are reported to be mainly protesting against the education reforms, as well as against high taxes and in solidarity with the Yellow Jackets.

France needs to leave the EU and govern itself in its own national interest.

It’s the EU, not the taxes

The Yellow Vest protests are aimed at Macron’s pro-EU administration, not just its fuel tax policy:

The fiery Yellow Vest protests that rage on across France have more to do with the “incompetent,” EU-dependent government policy than the rising gas prices, a French political commentator told RT. While many protesters vent their anger at President Emmanuel Macron, who took an unpopular decision to raise taxes and increase prices on fuel and other commodities, “they don’t realize the problem is much deeper and has to do with the general policy of the European Union.”

‘Most cops support Yellow Vest protesters over Macron’ – France police union chief to RT

“The revolt is not just about the gas prices, it’s a general revolt against the policy of the government,” Jean Bricmont, a French writer and political commentator, told RT. There’s not much that French authorities could do to relieve people’s worries and defuse tensions, he said, as Paris “has to obey the orders from the European Commission.”

On the back of violent rallies, President Emmanuel Macron said he will not back down on his controversial economic policy. “We won’t change course. We are certain of that,” government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux has said, hinting that Paris was considering a state of emergency over the protests.

“I think [Macron] doesn’t realize the depth of the crisis … there’s not much he can do about it,” Bricmont speculated. “He’s not a statesman, he’s a banker, he’s been put in that position and thinks that he has solution to everything in his head. I think he’s extremely arrogant, extremely self-centered, extremely detached from reality.”

In the meantime, officials around Macron are “incompetent,” Bricmont added, “I’m really scared for France.”

Scared for France? This nationalist resistance to rule by traitorous satraps of the EU is exactly what France needs, only a lot more of it. The protests mean there is still hope for the nation of France in the long term.

The greatest fool on the planet

Apparently the long-term plan of the Learned Elders of Wye to abandon ship and make the jump to China before the USA implodes isn’t going so well. This is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard any public figure say, and I can still remember Rep. Hank Johnson’s concerns about the island of Guam tipping over.

Bill Kristol@BillKristol
Shouldn’t an important U.S. foreign policy goal of the next couple of decades be regime change in China?

Yes, Bill, because World War III between nuclear powers would be ever so beneficial for everyone on the planet. This makes me suspect the neoconservatives are already discovering that the Chinese are considerably less likely to allow their nation to be invaded and destroyed than Americans were. It would appear the Chinese have been paying attention to the US decline and understand what happened over the course of the 20th century much better than Americans do.

Give it up, Bill. Shut up and listen to Netanyahu. He knows the score.The invade-the-world, invite-the-world game is just about played out.

The idiocracy has arrived

It’s such a mystery as to why average IQs have been falling precipitously across the West:

A pair of researchers with the Ragnar Frisch Centre for Economic Research in Norway has found that IQ test scores have been slowly dropping over the past several decades. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Bernt Bratsberg and Ole Rogeberg describe their study and the results they found. They also offer some possible explanations for their findings.

Prior studies have shown that people grew smarter over the first part of last century, as measured by the intelligence quotient—a trend that was dubbed the Flynn effect. Various theories have been proposed to explain this apparent brightening of the human mind, such as better nutrition, health care, education, etc, all factors that might help people grow into smarter adults than they would have otherwise. But, now, according to the researchers in Norway, that trend has ended. Instead of getting smarter, humans have started getting dumber.

The study by the team consisted of analyzing IQ test results from young men entering Norway’s national service (compulsory military duty) during the years 1970 to 2009. In all, 730,000 test results were accounted for. In studying the data, the researchers found that scores declined by an average of seven points per generation, a clear reversal of test results going back approximately 70 years.

There are other factors, of course, particularly the dysgenic effects of female education. One has to wonder what the point of educating women is supposed to be when the next generation of women are going to be considerably less intelligent because so few of the highly intelligent, highly educated manage to replace themselves.

But the sheer magnitude of the movement of peoples is the more significant factor. This is why the infrastructure in the USA is never going to return to the state it was in previous decades. The society simply isn’t intelligent enough on average to maintain it any longer.

Remember, that’s not just seven points, that’s seven points PER GENERATION. Idiocracy is not just a movie about the dystopian future, it’s a satire on the dystopian present. Welcome to Costco….

Neoliberal despair

David Brooks fears the post-Boomer future:

Two great belief systems are clashing here. The older liberals tend to be individualistic and meritocratic. A citizen’s job is to be activist, compassionate and egalitarian. Boomers generally think they earned their success through effort and talent. The younger militants tend to have been influenced by the cultural Marxism that is now the lingua franca in the elite academy. Group identity is what matters. Society is a clash of oppressed and oppressor groups. People who are successful usually got that way through some form of group privilege and a legacy of oppression….

The generation gap on the right is less dramatic. It’s less politically important because the young don’t influence the G.O.P. much; the old Trumpians do.

But over the long run it will matter. The boomer conservatives, raised in the era of Reagan, generally believe in universal systems — universal capitalism, universal democracy and the open movement of people and goods. Younger educated conservatives are more likely to see the dream of universal democracy as hopelessly naïve, and the system of global capitalism as a betrayal of the working class. Younger conservatives are comfortable in a demographically diverse society, but are also more likely to think in cultural terms, and to see cultural boundaries.

Whether on left or right, younger people have emerged in an era of lower social trust, less faith in institutions, a greater awareness of group identity. They live with the reality of tribal political warfare and are more formed by that warfare.

This is precisely why the Alt-Right is inevitable, and probably not the more moderate varieties either. Both white American liberalism and white American conservatism are dying, because both ideological perspectives are fundamentally dependent upon the homogeneous majority white population that existed pre-1965. Note that neither the liberal nor the conservative ideology have ever taken root anywhere outside the United States despite the USA’s global cultural influence. That’s why they will not survive post-American US politics; neither holds any appeal to Diversity.

The big difference between Generation Z and its predecessors is that their knowledge of identity politics is real and formative, whereas that of the older generations is mostly symbolic and theoretical. The Boomers, Generation Xers, and Millennials love to feel that they are helping poor unfortunate minorities through their virtue-signaling, whereas Generation Z looks around and realizes that they are in the minority themselves and they are surrounded by a Diversity that hates, envies, and fears them.

The older generations of whites simply cannot conceive of the white population not being completely in charge. The youngest generation realizes how heavily the deck is stacked against them.

Exercise your rights

I tend to doubt even Antifa are dumb enough to try this sort of home invasion in any Castle Doctrine jurisdiction:

A group of protesters congregated outside what they claimed was Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night to chant threatening messages.

Smash Racism D.C., a self-described “anti-fascist” group, posted a video of their members screaming obscenities at Carlson’s house and blaming his “policies” for the deaths of thousands of people.

“Tucker Carlson, we will fight!” the protesters chanted. “We know where you sleep at night!”

In the first video posted to Twitter, one protester can be seen ringing Carlson’s doorbell before running away.

“Racist scumbag, leave town!”

Every night you spread fear into our homes—fear of the other, fear of us, and fear of them. Each night you tell us we are not safe. Tonight you’re reminded that we have a voice. Tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either.

Someone affiliated with DC Antifa told The Gateway Pundit that the protest at Carlson’s home was “just the beginning.”

If they start it, we’ll end it. In the very unlikely event you haven’t already, it’s time to gun up. The expected civil unpleasantries have already begun. And while Tucker Carlson’s wife might not put three rounds of .357 in a home invader’s chest “because she feared for her life and the lives of her children” you can be damned sure that mine would not hesitate to do so.

Assuming, of course, that the Ridgebacks didn’t eat them first.

I highly recommend anyone right of center in the public eye to have at least two large security dogs. Then, if Antifa is dumb enough to set foot on your property, just open the door. Trust me, about the only thing more intimidating than a well-muscled adult Rhodesian Ridgeback unleashing its big bass “I WILL DEVOUR YOUR SOUL” bark from Hell at you is two of them doing it at the same time.

I’ve seen a grown man dive into the hatchback of his cars and slam it shut on himself rather than face a Ridgeback, and she was just wagging her tail and giving her friendly “HEY! HEY! HEY! NEW FRIEND! DO YOU WANT TO PLAY?” bark.
