Bookworm Beat 12/6/18 — the super quick edition

This Bookworm Beat quickly looks at silly queers, the fake #MeToo movement, the party of non-science, bad Islam, dead England, the Iran Deal, and more.

Honestly, I don’t know where the day went. Here it is, after 8 in the evening, and although I’ve been busy all day, I can’t quite put my finger on what I did. The one thing I didn’t do, though, was blog. However, I’ve tagged a lot of things I’d like to share with you. This will be a quick rundown:

Queers for Palestine are idiots. Islam is not a religion friendly to the LGBTQ+ crowd:

The only place in the Middle East that is friendly to the LGBTQ+ crowd is Israel. Unfortunately, intersectional nonsense means that way too many LGTBQ+ people are this stupid:

They are, in a word, useful idiots.

The #MeToo movement was to cull the herd. Dems leaped all over the #MeToo movement, but it’s obvious that they didn’t mean it. Sure, they got rid of a few problematic people (culling the herd), but mostly they still follow the line from the 1990s, which is Dem men get a pass if they support abortion. There are two stories today proving that point:

Volunteer calls out top New Jersey Dems for ignoring her sexual assault.

Top Harris Advisor Resigns Over Harassment Settlement. Harris Claims She Didn’t Know.

The “party of science” denies DNA. Barring an infinitesimally small number of aberrations, chromosomes allow for only two genders — male and female. However, academia in the form of the American Association of University Professors, who purport to represent “science” and “knowledge”, now officially rejects . . . science. So we get this opposition to Hungary’s decree that it will no longer support gender studies programs:

Biologists, anthropologists, historians, and psychologists have repeatedly shown that definitions of sex and sexuality have varied over time and across cultures and political regimes. Some of their work suggests that state-enforced preservation of traditional gender roles is associated with authoritarian attempts to control social life and to promise security in troubled times by pledging to protect patriarchal family structures. Authoritarian efforts such as these can justify racial, class, and sexual policing that disciplines forms of kinship and homemaking—including same-sex, multi- generational, or other nonnormative households— that deviate from established nuclear family norms. Politicians and religious fundamentalists are neither scientists nor scholars. Their motives are ideological. It is they who are offering “gender ideology” by attempting to override the insights of serious scholars. By substituting their ideology for years of assiduous research, they impose their will in the name of a “science” that is without factual support.

Let me remind you that, if you drill down into the purported “science” behind gender studies you get . . . zip.

If Lefties were really interested in gays and women they’d start taking a stand against Islam and Muslim immigrants. I already pointed out above the idiocy of gays supporting Palestinians. But women and anyone who keeps crying out “it’s for the children” (as Lefties do when they advocate open borders or unlimited immigration from Muslim countries), might want to pause for a second to read this:

Seven men have been arrested in Finland accused of repeatedly raping a ten-year-old girl in a grooming case that has shocked the Scandinavian country.

The girl has allegedly been subjected to multiple sexual assaults over several months in the suspects’ homes in Oulu in northern Finland, police say.

The men, aged 20 to 40, have all arrived in Finland as migrants or refugees in recent years, and are thought to have made contact with the victim on social media, local media reports.

Of course there are good Muslims but there’s no getting away from the fact that Islam’s core religious documents encourage pedophilia, antisemitism, anti-Christian sentiment, rape, etc., and that cultures marinated in core Islam take these ideas seriously.

Meanwhile, across America, schools are setting aside prayer rooms for Muslim children — something that would be less shocking were it not for the fact that, over the course of the last 50 years, the Judeo-Christian faith has been kicked roundly to the curb of public schools and told not to come back.

When it comes to race and religion, I’ll say this: I don’t believe in racial differences. I believe in cultural differences. I also believe that some cultures are better and some are worse. I happen to like 21st century Judeo-Christian values and American constitutionalism. I think they’re the best of the bunch.

Britain is lost. I lived in England during its brief resurgence under Maggie Thatcher. That England is dead and gone. Really dead. Really gone.

Someone I wish would be gone. Will Obama never retire gracefully? He’s even worse than Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and both of them have been pains in the ass who refuse to leave the stage now that their presidencies are over. Victor Davis Hanson has some choice words on the subject:

[P]rogressive ex-presidents such as Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Obama saw the presidency as a sort of never-ending story. Politics were a 24/7, 360-degree, all-encompassing experience. All envisioned their retirements as opportunities to relitigate their administrations and to politick the present in hopes that future kindred presidencies would be progressive and would continue their own agendas.

Carter frequently warned that the Reagan defense buildup and tough stance toward the Soviet Union were dangerous and would lead to an existential confrontation.

Clinton became a fierce critic of the Iraq War as his wife Hillary prepared to enter the 2008 presidential race as an anti-Bush candidate.

Obama still seeks to convince the country that Trump is “unfit” to be president.

After the recent passing of George H.W. Bush, there are now four living ex-presidents: Carter, Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama. There are five living former vice presidents: Walter Mondale, Dan Quayle, Al Gore, Dick Cheney and Joe Biden.

If all ex-presidents and ex-vice presidents were to weigh in nonstop on the current president and present-day politics, the result would be as chaotic as it would be boring.

The horrible Iran deal Obama executed a “give them everything” agreement with the Iranians. This was an unconstitutional agreement, because it was a treaty and he didn’t get Congress on board, but Europeans gleefully went on board. We were assured that, if we made nice with Iran by heaping money on the mullahs, they’d make nice with us. Hank Berrien says Europe has now realized that Trump, not Obama, was the prophet on this one:

It must be murder for them to admit it, but suddenly Western European leaders are realizing President Trump was right about ditching the Iran nuclear treaty.

On Tuesday, diplomats from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and France expressed their concern because of an Iranian medium-range ballistic missile test on Saturday.

The U.S. government stated that the missile Iran tested could reach Europe and the Middle East. According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the missile could carry multiple warheads and violated Security Council Resolution 2231, which instructed Iran to refrain from “any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”

I don’t weep too many tears for the pro-Iran, anti-American, anti-Israel European governments that thought they were so clever or for the European people who, in their socialist greed, elected those leaders. I do worry terribly about Israel’s security. I hope America and Israel have a plan.

On faith. I love it when someone I respect takes something I wrote and makes it better, by bringing to it more intelligence, more erudition, and more meaning. My friend Mike McDaniel just made my day.

Gotta run. I’ll try to write more tomorrow.

20 Members of Huddersfield Grooming Gang Sentenced to 221 Years

While they are the scum of the earth, twenty men who became known as the Huddersfield Grooming Gang in Yorkshire, UK are but one group of sexual predators preying on young girls and boys, many as young as 11 or 12 throughout Europe.  The predators befriend innocent children, ply them with fast food, drugs, alcohol and buy them stuff.  Once they have won the trust of their victims, they pounce .  The children are raped repeatedly by gang members and forced into prostitution.

The predators are mostly Pakistani Muslims and their victims whose childhood has been stolen are not.

On Friday, 20 members of the Huddersfield Grooming Gang was sentenced to a total of 221 years in prison for more than 150 different offenses.  Unfortunately, that would be about ten years each which hardly fits the crime.

Huddersfield Grooming Gang from top left to bottom right: Amere Singh Dhaliwal, Irfan Ahmed, Zahid Hassan, Mohammed Kammer, Raj Singh Barsran, Mohammed Rizwan Aslam, Abdul Rehman, Nahman Mohammed, Mansoor Akhtar, Mohammed Irfraz, Nasarat Hussain, Sajid Hussain, Faisal Nadeem, Mohammed Azeem, Wiqas Mahmud, Manzoor Hassan, Niaz Ahmed, Mohammed Imran Ibrar, Asif Bashir and Mohammed Akram.

The judge finally released the identities of the predators which were kept under wraps throughout the trial.  In addition, members of the Huddersfield Grooming Gang were granted bail and out on the streets during the whole trial.  At the same time, that these animals roamed the streets of the UK, Tommy Robinson was incarcerated for contempt of court for attempting to cover this trial which happens to be the fist of more to come.

Many in the gang were known by their nicknames, including Chiller, Dracula and Bully.

The offences took place between 2004 and 2011 and included dozens of rapes, sexual assaults, trafficking, abduction and child prostitution.

More trials are set to follow next year but the judge said it was time the public knew what had happened and who was responsible.

The latest abuse took place in Huddersfield, West Yorks., and follows similar scandals in Rotherham, Rochdale, Telford, Oxford and Newcastle.

The judge at Leeds Crown Court said the “gravity” of the offending “far exceeded” anything he had ever seen before.

We can now name all of the 20 men convicted.

They were each jailed for between five and life, with a minimum of 18 years.

Harrowing evidence revealed how the victims were deliberately targeted by the gang in Huddersfield who abused at will[…]

The rapes and abuse went on for so long because the system failed these children and their families. 

Unfortunately, a members of the Huddersfield Grooming Gang who was found guilty and sentenced to 17 years in prison has fled the UK.  He is back in Pakistan.

Political correctness, incompetence, fear and lawlessness took precedence over cries for justice and righting the wrongs. Because the victims of grooming gangs allegedly came from troubled homes, the system ignored their cries.

BBC One Airs Three-Night TV Special of the Rochdale grooming gangs.

BBC One is running a three-part special this week entitled, “Three Girls.” It is a true story about a scandal that began to surface about a decade ago [timeline 2003 to 2014] in the UK about gangs of Muslim adult men who prey on the young known as grooming gangs.

What are grooming gangs?

Grooming gangs are mostly older Muslim men who befriend unsuspecting young girls and boys, most of whom are poor and live in a troubled environment.

The children, many teens are reeled in aka groomed with gifts, booze, drugs and fast food all the while these men are pretending to care about their prey. As with most pedophiles, the point is to gain the children’s trust.

Once trust is gained and their victims groomed, the predators strike raping the girls (or boys) repeatedly. The  grooming gangs claim their victims as their property and the children are threatened into silence.

Kept in line by their predators: The girls are raped, drugged, tortured, threatened, trafficked for sex, passed around to whomever, wherever at anytime.

The system, from social services to law enforcement, etc. failed the victims and their families who came forward by turning a blind eye to their plight often leaving the girls with nowhere to turn except back into hands of their abusers.
