The essence of SJW

This SJW summed up the core essence of social justice and the reason for social justice convergence beautifully in his response to my tweet about the collapse of North Heights Lutheran:
We have no issues here. Backwards thinking congregations look to be the problem. I'm sorry if any religion cannot be progressive then it should die and quickly.
It is very important, it is VITAL, to understand this point. If any religion, or game, or media platform, or chess club, or university, or corporation, or institution, or organization cannot be progressive, then it should die and quickly.

SJWs envision one of two scenarios when they invade an organization. They will either coopt it and converge it, or they will kill it.

If you do not understand that, if you do not understand that they would rather destroy the organization than permit it to survive as a bastion of crimethink and badfeelz, you will almost inevitably lose. That is why the SJWs in science fiction were willing to burn down five Hugo categories rather than permit them to be recaptured by anti-progressive forces.

They were not only willing to do so, they celebrated the fact, because if a Hugo Award category cannot be progressive, then it should die and quickly.

Give it a week or two and the term "Social Justice Warrior" will be on the Thought Police's banned words list.

After watching the SJW lynching at Yale that is making the rounds on the right wing circuit I have been wracking my little brain to come up with a rhetorical zinger to apply to those types of situations.

Another lynch mob is forming at an SEC school and that is at Mizzou, and just remember that when you slap at me for mentioning that sports and the "Narrative" are separate. My WAG the admin of Mizzou caves tremendously in favor of the lynch mob, anybody want to bet differently?

Related to this topic, Stafan Molyneux hosted Bill Whittle to talk about r/K Selection strategy. If it doesn't make sense to you why Progressives would align themselves with anti-civilizational forces and tear down institutions and traditions that create stable societies, then this is worth watching.

The Methodist Christian church where my mother has been going for 2 years has recently gone full tilt SJW, their entire focus now is on diversity and inclusion and essentially trying to convince the 90% white affluent congregation that fled Atlanta to live in the safe white suburbs to embrace their non-white future. They have black ministers from Africa as guest speakers and have been playing "It's a small non-white world" type of video propaganda as well. In just a few short weeks the services went from being crowded to now about 1/3 capacity. They will certainly destroy this church. Mom hates it, she goes to her bible study group but won't go to the services any longer.

Blogger Joel C. Salomon November 08, 2015 10:26 AM  

In 1854, Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch wrote an essay series addressing the idea of “Religion Allied to Progress”, and this paragraph is probably the core of it:

“The subordination of religion to any other factor means the denial of religion: for if the Torah is to you the Law of God how dare you place another law above it and go along with God and His Law only as long as you thereby ‘progress’ in other respects at the same time? You must admit it: it is only because ‘religion’ does not mean to you the word of God, because in your heart you deny Divine Revelation, because you believe not in Revelation given to man but in Revelation from man, that you can give man the right to lay down conditions to religion.”

(Adjust details as needed for your own faith, of course.)

Anonymous Nxx November 08, 2015 11:29 AM  

This is so funny. A religious fanatic accusing others of being religious fanatics.

If you ask a SJW why do you persecute people with different political views, the answer is ALWAYS:

Because tolerance.

If you then ask why persecute for tolerance the answer is ALWAYS:

Because hitler.

When questioning SJW hitler will ALWAYS emerge within two at most three whys; hitler is the substrate of SJW reality.

A religion is a system of ideas based on faith; since SJW believe that they have to sacrifice people to keep their god, the Evil God Adolf Hitler, from arising in the FUTURE, they are religious BY DEFINITION.

Note that SJW will often pretend their persecutions are not about religion but about history. Don't fall for it. Stalin killed more than Hitler yet SJW don't persecute marxists because Stalin is history whereas to SJW Hitler is religion.

The SJW religion is CRAP (Crazy Religious Authoritarian Progressivism). Everything about SJW behavior becomes eerily predictable once you model them as religious fanatics who believe in CRAP.

Side note: A minority of SJW are perfectly aware that SJW are pseudo Aztec religious fanatics. However, in a secular system the advantage to be gained by denying your religious nature is ENOURMOUS. In practice secularism has become a device that keeps competing religions locked out in order to enable this covert religion to take over govt institutions one by one via systematic persecution of unbelievers.

The use of christian imagery through out the film is something I never considered before.

Given that pretty much everyone in the entire cast and crew was an atheist. (Sorry Vox,I know what Audrey means to you).

Dalton Trumbo was an outright communist, so I suspect that the co-opting of christian imagery throughout the production was entirely deliberate.

To include the mass crucifixion at the end.

Historical footnote: It's quite possible Spartacus got clean away.

Blogger guest November 08, 2015 11:42 AM  

When Supreme Court "Injustice" Kennedy stated that Christians should just resign, as they did under NAZI Germany, he made no secret about his aspirations for America. The thing is, under NAZI Germany, government workers weren't just allowed to quit. Just quitting wasn't going to keep them from submitting or death. I'm very sure that Injustice Kennedy understand this. The goal isn't tolerance of those who disagree with the government. But a sweet promise that by just going along and resigning will bring about peace, keeps people quiet until the slaughter.

Hitler is merely a demon. The name of their God, whom you must keep on the right side of if you know what's good for you, is History. History has a divine plan named Progress. The name of their devil, who must be destroyed in the name of Progress, is Patriarchy. Patriarchy's evil plan is named Capitalism, which Progress will destroy in a cultural apocalypse.

If you dig a little deeper you will find that they believe they are the righteous few, preordained by History to, after the cultural apocalypse, return to the Divine Garden, named Socialism.

The officers, later joined by a fourth, trapped Few’s vehicle at the intersection of Martin Luther King Drive and Taensas Street in Marksville, a crossing allowing through traffic, contrary to some reports that said it is a dead-end.

Investigators found evidence of at least 18 rounds fired from two officers’ weapons in the direction of Few and his young son, Edmonson said earlier Friday, adding that there was no gun in Few’s SUV."

The good thing about an SJW saying something so bluntly is that it makes dealing with them so much easier. They've declared they want you converted or dead (hmmmm, sounds like another bunch of extremists I've heard about), so the acceptable methods of responding are much more well-defined.

I quote his whole post, if it don't cause too much inconvience.

@40 A classic case is the Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco. Built in the 1930s and given a rich widows endowment. It was done out of her love of God. Long after she was dead (1960s) it was taken over by a radical liberal pastor who basically chased any real Christians out of the church. He killed it as a church, but it was rich and is now a massive social justice center. I have never seen such a church taken back. The old member are long dead. There is no way to take it back at that point. So never let them in, do not tolerate them. As Christians we want to let all come in and hear the truth. But some do not come to hear, they come to take over. Do not let them in and if some make it in, kick them out.

Its not my local story, my state has requirements for people who serve warrants, which seem to be missing in this case. My state has constables that serve warrants, the constables in my state need to be certified but deputies do not.

From 2 links into the story "Marksville Mayor John Lemoine previously told The Advocate that Ward 2 Marshal Floyd Voinche Sr. recently began recruiting part-time officers and obtaining squad cars to issue tickets, without permission from city officials.

Voinche is not certified by the Peace Officer Standards and Training Council, according to the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement. All full-time officers are required to undergo the basic training and certification, but it’s legal for elected leaders of police agencies to not be certified."

Note a few choice details from this article:

Try that with your local police department after they arrest you for shooting anyone, much less a 6yo kid. "Sorry, I don't want to be interviewed, piss off."

2. The whole business about the ex-bus driver now elected "city marshal" suddenly buying police cars and hiring moonlighting police officers and issuing tickets (which the city marshal has never done before) and the mayor not being able to find out a damn thing. But its the rule of law!

This is the one that stops most folks. Yes, the feminist/identity state has the backing of (well-paid) law enforcement, and government. Raise your voice and they'll be at your door. Object to your Most Recent Beatdown . . . flashing lights and knock on the door.

But it's the alienation from, and loss of, family and friends that keeps most objectors in line. It's just too much to give up for the vast majority of men. That's why the leader said we aren't worthy of God if we can't give up those elements (especially people) that come between us and God. That come between us and the truth, our masculinity . . . what we know we are supposed to do.

Many men that still attend congregational churches, long corrupted by feminism and SJWs, remain bc they can't relinquish the fellowship and good-feel they get each week from meeting and interacting with their (supposed) religious friends and peers. It's a rare shot of GoodFeel in a world of increasing BadFeel, with a patina of religiosity on top. Catholics particularly are susceptible to this, because that religion relies so heavily on traditions and rituals created by human beings. People hate to give up their comforts, whether physical or psychological.

Susan, I'm not actually "fond" of any kind of execution. However if:

2. One notes that there is a sheep v. lamb problem, say, for rape and robbery (i.e. why not rape and kill or rob and kill if the penalty is the same and the odds of getting caught are less if one disposes of the witnesses?), then,
3. You need to find a way to jack up the penalty beyond mere death, hence:
4.
a) Crucifixion for Murder and Treason (or in cases where you really need to terrorize a group),
b) Burning at the stake for arson,
c) Impalement for rape (but none of this unconstitutional "rape shield law bullshit," if death is on the line, all relevant evidence comes in)
d) Pouring molten gold down the throats of counterfeiters (and a redefinition of that to include people like Bernie Madoff) and,
e) Simple hanging for lesser common law felonies, like burglary and robbery

Maybe. Most people 40 and under has some sort of game system.

I just had a bad service job done by a left winger. Contracted to clean and fix my AC drain line for $115.00. Did not correctly reassemble the above ground stub out allowing dirt to reclog line. Am in the process of giving the guy an opportunity to make things right but henceforth I am vetting all contractors and they will be conservative or no contract awarded. At Sunday service I received name of conservative replacement from a fellow church goer.
All my contractrs will be conservatives. No more contracts to left wingers. This is what left wingers have begged for and by gosh I'm willing to give them nothing!
May they die slowly!

SJWs are the holiness mutated descendants of New England Puritans. They precipitated the Civil War, charged enthusiastically into WWI, and will definitely wreck your shit. They RULE THE WORLD. Check out the proxy negro on badwhite ethnic cleanse. Failure to take them seriously is like failure to take Communists seriously. It boggles the mind.

You should be worried about survival and fates worse than death, not etiquette.

You think Progressive America will magically transform back into 1790 Biblical Christians when Great Depression 2.0 hits? Nope. They'll just take the gloves off and roll out the cattle cars.

The only death penalty I support is stoning. Community participation, perfect transparency, adjustable cruelty. E.g. anyone can veto the suffering with a knockout headshot.

"You need to find a way to jack up the penalty beyond mere death,"

I assume that is the heart of your objection. Use your imagination. Stoning can be quick and painless, or it can last for days. Baseball: the American pastime.

Blogger Tom Kratman November 09, 2015 12:14 AM  

Do you understand the mechanism of death for stoning? It is not percussion. And, even if true that it could be anything, making it subject to the most merciful among the crowd does not reduce the sheep v. lamb problem.

Blogger TheRedSkull November 09, 2015 2:17 AM  

I don't.

There's a vast gulf between an holier-than-thou anti-death-penalty-activist rabbit and someone capable of mercy killing with a hurled rock. Plus, crossing an angry mob in the process of torturing someone is a risky move. Overall, I think God picked the right death penalty mechanism. There's something very cathartic, open, and publicly edifying about it.

But most importantly, it preys on a great fear of rabbits - outgrouping. It may actually be the most terrifying punishment to them. This can be difficult to understand for us rational folks, who simply multiply probability of conviction by physical pain of punishment. But very little crime is rational, and that portion which is, is best deterred by attacking the probability portion of the equation.

I think other forms of capital punishment predominate because mob execution inconveniences state control. In other words, it's the whole judges vs. kings debate again. I have no desire to place the power of spectacular torture, public or private, in state hands.

In other words: Jury Trial is a right of Englishmen, and I'd prefer Jury Execution as well, thank you.

Bear in mind that a kinsman redeemer / blood avenger has no specified method of execution. So you are still welcome to settle as viciously as desired, "out of court".

Sounds like a reasonable approach. Only deal with people who are worth dealing with.

We have no issues here. Backwards thinking congregations look to be the problem. I'm sorry if any religion cannot be progressive then it should die and quickly.

Asking a hardcore atheist advice on how to run your church makes as much sense as asking Hitler how to conduct a bris.

Blogger Tom Kratman November 09, 2015 5:44 AM  

Stoning kills by suffocation. The procedure is that the rocks are thrown to knock the victim down, then piled on until the weight is so great he can no longer draw air. Faster, slower; you can't even really tell.

And it STILL doesn't solve the sheep v. lamb problem.

My husband pastors a good size Methodist church in a small city in the south that is home to a prominent liberal light blue public university on Tobacco Road. I give you these details because I pray and hope there will be those of like mind who will come. The opportunity for change is there, albeit it will take the willingness to get involved and the patience to mentor.
Being in the mainline church for 28 years, I have watched as SJW's have taken over and the church decline, all in the name of being welcoming and convenience to the flock. Mostly the SJW's are women but also many men who were worldly minded saw the work of the church as easy money in a time of progressive abundance. I had the chance to speak with one of the retired ministers who was part of the hierarchy 20 years ago and he couldn't for the life of him understand why the denomination was dying.
Vox, I want to thank you. I smile each time I hear a bold truth come out in my husband's sermons. I know they are there because at his core my husband is true man of God and this blog helps to strengthen his voice. Your influence is greater than you know.

I am not sure if I would implement your proposal but I do understand it. How can a person see what happens in the world and not want to do as you propose and then some.

How would you address prosecuting attorneys and law enforcement hiding exculpatory evidence?

Blogger TheRedSkull November 09, 2015 2:39 PM  

Stoning doesn't have to kill by suffocation. You can always move the rocks or the victim, or tie him to a higher post.

Kari,

Above all, pray for your husband, and how best you can serve him.

Only—but this is rare—
When a belovèd hand is laid in ours,
When, jaded with the rush and glare
Of the interminable hours,
Our eyes can in another's eyes read clear,
When our world-deafen'd ear
Is by the tones of a loved voice caress'd—
A bolt is shot back somewhere in our breast,
And a lost pulse of feeling stirs again.
The eye sinks inward, and the heart lies plain,
And what we mean, we say, and what we would, we know.
A man becomes aware of his life's flow,
And hears its winding murmur; and he sees
The meadows where it glides, the sun, the breeze.

And there arrives a lull in the hot race
Wherein he doth for ever chase
That flying and elusive shadow, rest.
An air of coolness plays upon his face,
And an unwonted calm pervades his breast.
And then he thinks he knows
The hills where his life rose,
And the sea where it goes.
