Orwell With a Laugh Track

    I am beginning to think that the easiest way to understand this Pontificate is to imagine a screenplay about a papacy written by George Orwell that is also a black comedy.  With furor among Catholics around the globe over the Pope’s remark that the great majority of sacramental marriages are invalid  the Vatican

Wendy Davis is Pro-life and War is Peace

      Hattip to Mary Katharine Ham at Hot Air.  Wendy Davis, Texas State Senator, who won her Senate seat running as a pro-abort with the help of the man who was and is the head of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and who is campaigning for governor of the Lone Star State on the strength of her ultimately futile filibuster

Devils’ Bargain

The 74th anniversary of the Nazi-Soviet agreement.  Two of the three great mass murderers of the last century, Mao would complete the trio, the marriage of convenience of Hitler and Stalin signaled the onset of World War II.  Communists who had been calling for a common front with democrats to oppose Hitler immediately turned on a

Tolerance and the American Left

From Reason TV.  It is funny until one ponders that we live in a time where a broad swathe of Americans are able to be simultaneously unremittingly hostile to people who have the temerity to hold views differing from theirs on political and cultural matters, while also supposedly celebrating tolerance as a key part of their worldview.  George

Kermit Gosnell: Symbol of our Times

George Orwell, 1984 You know that you are living in topsy-turvy times when the most close-minded institutions are colleges and universities

A Baby by any Other Name

Hattip to Pat Archbold at Creative Minority Report for the video gently lampooning the twisted language employed by pro-aborts to attempt to deny the humanity of the unborn. George Orwell, who literally wrote the book on how totalitarian regimes use language to serve evil ends, would have loved the video.  Although an agnostic and an

Attack Watch!!!!!

You know, sometimes I suspect there are forces within the Obama administration attempting to throw the upcoming presidential election race.  The most recent evidence of this is a truly Orwellian website, Attack Watch, at which Obama supporters can report unfair attacks on Fearless Empty Suit.  Go here to view the Attack Watch webite.  Sheesh, I hope

Life Imitates Art

Orwell’s two minute hate from 1984 is brought to film in the above video.  Below is a video montage of tweets calling for the death of Sarah Palin which went out after the Giffords shootings.  (Strong content advisory:  many of the tweets are very vulgar and obscene and all of them are examples of congealed
