A tale of two German ladies
This one said that Auschwitz wasn't a death camp.
This one meanwhile summoned millions of non-Israeli Near Easterners into her country.
The 87 year old who got thrown into the pokey is a troll. At times she's even been a denier. I am certainly not going to support her comments that the Holocaust was a hoax. But that specific comment she got arrested for may, er, have been right...
And even if she's not right; even if this 87 year old woman is personally not a nice person. Which of these two ladies stands to cause more damage to German citizens? Which one stands to cause more damage to German Jews?

Leo on ḥmd
In Judaism, ḥmd is in the semantic field of desire. The Ultimate Commandment is lô taḥmôd.
In the Qur'an, ḥmd is in the semantic field of praise; coupled with sbḥ. Compare Q. 34:1 with Q. 59:1. An' ev'rythin' after, more to the point: sura 61, especially, had used sura 59 and likely had access to sura 34 as well.
We have an early third-party witness to al-Hajjâj's post-sura-61 Qur'an: Lewond's translation of the Correspondence. As Arthur Jeffery translated it,
Lewond's own language was Armenian - related to Greek, but not Greek. So I wonder if we are missing something in the double translation, Greek to Armenian to English. But it does seem that ḥmd had already exited the depths of Covetous and had entered the field of devotion.

This is the future you chose
Can Chait undo his career as a shill for the Left? Can he unwrite all that he has written against the "wingnuts"?

Ben Carson got religion
Benjamin Carson likes to talk about his violent past. Some parts of the story may or may not check out; his mum verified some of it in the 1990s, but...
Overall I'm getting a handle on Carson's "type".
Carson is the guest speaker at the storefront church. He's the guy who animatedly lays bare his soul, on how bad a person he used to be... before he found true faith. Some details might be embellished. But who cares? It's the Holy Spirit speaking through him!
So if you're supporting him, and you are yourself wondering about the stances against the Second Amendment, and for the equality of Puerto Rico... know that Carson answers to a higher power. That higher power might not allow him to protect your rights.
Jeb: can I get a hell-yeah for killing baby white people?
If it's against potential 'racists', anything is permitted. Literally anything.
The target in question did indeed grow up to become a horrible person. As of - oh - 1923, shooting that guy would have been an
But am I the only one here bothered about the ethics of smothering an infant in its crib? And why did J.E.B. immediately blurt out "hell yeah" instead of redirecting the questioner to baby Lenin? or baby Gramsci, or baby Adorno?
... yeah, I know the answer to that.
Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting! Stop resisting!
Six, dudes. The poor kid you sent eighteen clips at was six. P.S. Here's a picture of Marksville's Finest, Derrick Stafford, 32, of Mansura, and Norris Greenhouse Jr., 23, of Marksville. From 7 News Denver:
The University of Missouri is a gladiatorial ludus
If you are there for the academics - which is what State taxpayers expect of their universities - it is strongly advised you transfer out, as soon as you can.

Erasing Howard Phillips Lovecraft
I'm surprised it took this long.
If you want the full rundown on what Lovecraft actually believed, Radish still gots it here. Boetel has deleted his earlier blog Unamusement Park, so go read the Radish article before he changes his mind on that too. Best to download the thing actually.

Only racist fools trust Politico
The last time I looked into Politico was four years ago. It was lying about a black Republican candidate then too.
Personally I'll admit: I don't (initially) trust black Rightists myself; I always start out wondering what's their angle. This does often help, as with Armstrong Williams and - indeed - with the people they "advise".
But I at least try to offer actual, you know, reasons. A Politico link is not a reason.
Politico isn't just for people who might start out thinking the worst of black Republicans; it's for suckers who want to think the worst. Left-voting suckers and... others.
(In that last case, there's a retraction. Sort-of. What I'd do in a mea-culpa post, which posts I've had to do on occasion, is to question what assumptions caused me to get suckered.)

Armstrong Williams is back
Now, it is possible that Williams is advising Carson on how to run a campaign. But Williams back when wasn't being paid to run a campaign. He was being paid to shill for that campaign. That's what Williams is good at: running his mouth on behalf of (pseudo)conservative white elites. So it is much more likely that Williams and Carson are planning their strategy accordingly.
Add to that, Carson's book-tour, and... well.
Hey, it's your money. Spend it how you wanna. Personally I'm not spending any of mine on Carson.

Pan-European identity - the French can't do it
Thus spake Bernard: be pan-European; don't be pan-white. CounterCurrents sees this as incoherent. I'm going to agree with the gut-instinct of CounterCurrents, although I don't think Bernard's thesis is incoherent - I just think it's ill-thought-out.
Someone should present Bernard with the state ledgers for Portugal and Greece. A pan-European and French-directed government is already being tried and it has FAILED. French-directed pan-European government has ever been a short-term affair in Europe: Imperator Macsen, Charlemagne, Louis XIV, and Napoleon. For non-Frenchmen it boils down to this: few in Europe trust one another, but above all nobody trusts the French. If Americans want an analogue then consider Wilson.
I agree more with Bernard's recommendation for a pan-European (and pan-Mediterranean!) sense of solidarity. The Catholic Church was founded to meet exactly this need. Quite often it has even succeeded at it. I admit that today the Church needs better cardinals and - sorry to say - popes. Bernard should latch onto that, and should direct his future efforts into figuring that out.
Roman Bernard, Napoleon XIV
I was in DC last weekend. There was a nationalist conference there at the time, National Policy Institute - I didn't attend it. The lads at CounterCurrents attended on my behalf, and delivered a report. In it, I see this:
CounterCurrents was put off by Bernard’s dismissal of "white" as an identifying marker. I think that CounterCurrents did not comprehend what nationalisme means in French.
Bernard as a Frenchman has a coast on the Mediterranean. Mediterraneans (and Central Asians) don't wholly identify as "white". (Certainly I never have. And I've a sight more reason than have some people.) Bernard was, however, proposing a pan-European entity that would be safe for whites (like Swedes) and for Mediterraneans. People in between would be best-positioned to run a pan-Europe... people like the French.

Enjoy your one term, Cory Gardner
I voted for you, Cory Gardner. I had a bad feeling about it all 'round - as you know, if you were reading this blog last year. But I also looked at your opponent. I held my nose - voted accordingly.
You proved me right: you were a whore, just waiting for the right john. And you won't get that second chance.

When was Christmas chosen?
I've been wondering about Christmas-as-pagan-holiday for some time. Last December, I brought up some primaries: Hippolytus of Rome, d. 235 AD (probably). His commentary on Daniel (in present form) notes 25 December in passing, as if it were obvious to all Christians. Today I've learnt that it wasn't so obvious to Clement of Alexandria, d. 215 AD; that one didn't even mention the 25 December date.
Some commenters are saying that although Hippolytus outlived Clement, he wrote down his commentary with its 25 December date in 204 AD. So, before Clement died.
Was Clement aware of Hippolytus's work? To what extent was he aware of the Roman school of Christianity? To Christians approaching Christmas, these are vital questions!
