Looks like the liberation of Indian women from stultifying cultural and religious traditions will be fought, not with outdated boring translated feminist texts from the West, but in colorful bikinis on the shapely. Models VS militants. Speaking of Indian women struggling against the oppressively maddening paradigms of traditions you might want to check out a 2009 documentary Love in India or, for example, the novel Miss India. Also India Becoming.

Lo and behold, almighty ones, Rihanna goes topless on farmer’s field while shooting video and causes rift in the fabric of existence. The stilted old farmer then came upon the scene of corruption on his land and disrupted filming and ordered the sexy singer off in the name of God. Nudity of course cannot be tolerated; it can cause blindness in innocent beholders (though God was merciful in this case; there were no incidents of reported blindness or sudden outbreaks of severe acne). Staring at bare breasts can also, so it is said, cause auto-ejaculation in crazy old cogs who have never experienced the fleshier aspects of the natural world (except maybe for a cow’s milky udder), or at least can’t remember.

Just read Fairbank’s China: A New Hist. There’s a section on footbinding of women which was essentially the disfigurement of women’s feet (Han Chinese anyway) to satisfy a man’s foot fetish for ‘golden lillies. It was almost as grotesque or maybe just as grotesque as Islamic genital mutilation. It started in the tenth century and was still visible up to the 1930s. From about 5 to around 15 a girl’s feet were bound in such a way so that the front or side of the foot would bend toward the heel, looking at that point more like a kind of weird hoof (how they got ‘golden lilly’ out of that is beyond my fetish imagination). Women would never run again, or even be able to walk properly; I guess it was a surefire way of keeping your women at home Anyway here’s a picture from an exhibit on the subject in Taiwan.

You now, I have to admit I’m pretty ambivalent when it comes to the death penalty; I don’t like the idea of the state being able to execute someone, but then again I read this and it’s a sentence that seems most appropriate for all involved.
“…As the restless mob milled about, a 26-year-old Zimbabwean immigrant named Farai Kujirichita emerged from one of the narrow passageways that led to the field. He was wearing a carefully pressed, lilac-colored shirt and talking into his cellphone. By then, many people were coming and going; his arrival was nothing remarkable. And yet some men from the crowd confronted him…” Here. Btw, the fact that this murder took place in Africa is not the point; crowd mentality could produce this anywhere (as it often has here in the Grand Banana Republic with lynchings and mob attacks, for example.)
The latest fast food mob attack: Dunkin’ Donuts
Another example of multiculturalism in action. Argument at Sikh temple in NYC descends into sword fight–with real swords (“Holy Diversity, Batman!”).
It doesn’t matter what place you pick, Denny’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, et al, this uncivil behavior is getting pretty common.
Theological question of the day: If God wanted peace in the world why did he build fast food joints, huh?
Secular question of the day: Fries with that brutality?
A few examples of the GBR’s fast food life (hey, let’s pick on Denny’s; it seems to be a hotbed of assholes):
Yeah, there’s plenty more but I don’t have all night to post this crap.
UPDATE: McDonald’s this time: black racists attack white girl in McDonald’s grease joint. (Now you might ask, how I know this is racist as such? Well I’m just applying the Al Sharpton Classification of Racial Antagonism Law, which clearly states that if a person or group (who happens to be W) attacks, singles out another person or group (who happens to be B) for violence or abuse that is in fact a raciist act–case closed).
UPDATE: Now even kops are fighting at the trans fat joints.
I first read, at least in depth, about this Islamic ritual of “cutting women” in Ayaan Ali’s Infidel.
“…Last week, the world learned about the town of Cleveland, Texas, where 18 teenage boys gang-raped an 11-year-old girl and, according to The New York Times, caused the community to rend their garments about how the crime would ruin the lives … of the rapists…” What to do about avoiding future rape incidents? Well for one, conservatives want to take a rule from the Taliban gender playbook and regulate the dress code of eleven year old girls. Read article here.

“…Japan’s orderliness and civility often impressed me during my years living in Japan, but never more so than after the Kobe quake. Pretty much the entire port of Kobe was destroyed, with shop windows broken all across the city. I looked all over for a case of looting, or violent jostling over rescue supplies. Finally, I was delighted to find a store owner who told me that he’d been robbed by two men. Somewhat melodramatically, I asked him something like:And were you surprised that fellow Japanese would take advantage of a natural disaster and turn to crime? He looked surprised and responded, as I recall: Who said anything about Japanese. They were foreigners…”–Nicholas Kristof in the NY Times.

Note: if you want to contrast the difference between Japan and the Grand Banana Republic just research the looting, murder, and rape that went on during the Katrina aftermath.

This is what happens when foreign exchange students or J-1 Visa visitors believe the land-of-opportunity myth that has been perpetrated by the Grand Banana Republic all these years (via Hollywood): What they find of course is that they’ve entered a pretty scummy country. ”…This is not what I thought when I paid all this money to come here,” said Natalia Berlinschi, a Romanian who came to the U.S. on a J-1 visa hoping to save up for dental school but got stuck in South Carolina this summer without a job. She took to begging for work on the Myrtle Beach boardwalk and sharing a three-bedroom house with 30 other exchange students…In my whole life, I’ve never lived in that kind of place and that kind of conditions…” Now you know how those born here in this shit hole feel.

Yes, behold the joy. The Islamic United Arab Emirates’s highest Islamic court has ruled that women and children cannot be beaten so badly as to leave marks. In the Islamic world this could actually be considered a step upward (I mean, compare it to stoning). Tourists: keep in mind that if you’re a woman (and/or a child) just visiting the UAE this same Islamic rule will apply to you; you’re husband will be allowed to slap you silly (you’ll have to wait till you get back home to beat him). Here (The Daily Mail).
Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany has said her country’s attempts to build a post-war multicultural society have ‘utterly failed’. Welcome to reality. Despite a tolerant sounding name (and we all admire tolerance) you simply cannot maintain a civilized society by allowing each cultural group (Islam, for example, certainly the most audacious group) to have its own laws (in the case of Islam, for example, sharia law).
Like I said, we already know that MC doesn’t work: look at Patterson, NJ here in the good ol’ Grand Banana Republic: The excerpt below is from here (Atlas Shrugs).
This is a constant occurrence on this Muslim-dominated stretch of road. In the past, I have been mocked by other religious names. Once a much younger man, in a group of men speaking Arabic, stopped me, and mocked me as "Moses," as his friends surrounded me.

Makes sense to me: “Multiculturalists say the West is just a random assemblage of diferent cultures from around the world. Culturism recognizes that western nations have unique traditional core cultures to protect, guide and promote…” Check this book here (here’s the first chapter).
These videos exemplify a common element of societal disruption in the West: Islamic immigrantion. Europe, it seems, “is suffering from what we might call Islamolepsy, the kind of rigidity found in schizophrenia and hypnotic trances, now transposed upon a collective cultural sensibility and reducing it to a condition of social and political helplessness. It does not know how to fight back… Sharia law is gradually being introduced in Britain— a harbinger of things to come in other EU countries…There are currently 6,000 mosques in Europe and the number is growing…” –From an article by David Solway in Pajamas Media.

“Recently the Australian Curriculum Studies Association and the University of Melbourne’s Centre of Excellence for Islamic Studies issued a booklet, “Learning From One Another: Bringing Muslim Perspectives into Australian Schools,” which maintains that “every Australian school student would be taught positive aspects about Islam and Muslims — and that Australia is a racist country.” Here. Of course, in the mother-of-all-multiculturalism. the U.S., they’re already implementing this perspective in some schools. Here.
I think someone should point out to such severely blind-sided multiculturalists that pushing Islam is also, simultaneously, pushing Sharia law, which is intrinsic to the Muslim view. Sharia law as, for example, practiced in Iran and under the taliban, calls for the killing of gays and the stoning of adulterers.

Blood toasting is of course a ritual in Mexico involving a person drinking the blood from a murder victim to prevent law enforcement from being able to find and prosecute them. Ah, nothing like the old Mexican blood ritual, raising the glass of red liquid and proclaiming, This is my secret, before letting it coat your throat with its magical powers. Hey, the ritual makes sense if it really works. I mean I’d certainly try anything not to end up sitting in a Mexican jail or in this case a jail in Tampa, Florida.

Item: “Project Vigilant is clearly nothing less than a government controlled attack dog fulfilling its role to implement the cybersecurity agenda, which…has nothing to do with security and everything to do with political oppression, Chinese style Internet censorship, and the total evisceration of free speech on the world wide web…” Here and here.

Political correctness, newspeak. Of course in the great handbook of 1984 we have the temporal perameters: “Newspeak was the official language of Oceania and had been devised to meet the ideological needs of Ingsoc, or English Socialism. In the year 1984 there was not as yet anyone who used Newspeak as his sole means of communication, either in speech or writing. The leading articles in the Times were written in it, but this was a tour de force which could only be carried out by a specialist. It was expected that Newspeak would have finally superseded Oldspeak (or Standard English, as we should call it) by about the year 2050. Meanwhile it gained ground steadily, all Party members tending to use Newspeak words and grammatical constructions more and more in their everyday speech. The version in use in 1984, and embodied in the Ninth and Tenth Editions of the Newspeak Dictionary, was a provisional one, and contained many superfluous words and archaic formations which were due to be suppressed later. It is with the final, perfected version, as embodied in the Eleventh Edition of the Dictionary, that we are concerned here…” –The Principles of Newspeak

Aisha, 18, depicted on the cover above, “was dragged from her home by the Taliban after running away from her husband. Despite her pleas that her in-laws had been abusive, that they treated her like a slave, that she had no choice but to escape, a Taliban commander said that she must be punished, lest other girls in the village try to do the same thing. Aisha’s family members carried out the punishment: her brother-in-law held her down while her husband sliced off her ears and nose, then left her to die. She is now hidden in a secret women’s shelter, where she was taken after receiving care from U.S. forces.” Incredibly, after all these years we’ve been in Afghanistan this sort of thing is still widespread (here.).
