Childrearing Hero for the Ages

A Childrearing Hero for the Ages

Oh, no! The parents didn’t do a thing!
Grandfather Pharisee was all-in-all.
And now he feels ingratitude’s sharp sting.
Oh, no: the parents didn’t do a thing
To raise the child. Lord Pharisee was king
And priest and prophet – as you will recall.
Oh, no. The parents didn’t do a thing.
Grandfather Pharisee was all-in-all.

Old Marse Robert Samples Aleksandr Dugin’s Vodka and Finds It Good

Old Marse Robert Samples Aleksandr Dugin’s Vodka and Finds It Good

“Aggressive abroad and despotic at home.”

The unipolar world is at an end—
Which suits me fine. The Yankees went too far,
As Yankees always go. Now they descend.
I’m watching their imaginary star
Plummet. The tortured earth it’s sure to scar
Again – a sort of global spouse abuse.
But keep the victim handcuffed? No cigar.
Expecting that, the Yankees prove obtuse
Beyond their former measure. Fast and loose
They’ve played since 1860. For a while,
It served them well. But now, neck in the noose,
Their empire will be throttled, and in style.
And all of the disasters that we see?
Predicted by the Last of Heroes, Lee.

COVID 19 2.0

COVID 19 2.0

Monkeypox will be everywhere soon.
Mitigation will follow – a boon
To the global elites
Who accept no defeats.
We’ll all act out their scripted cartoon.

Primate Devolution

Primate Devolution

The NATO bio-labs in far Ukraine,
If monkeypox impends, won’t make the news.
Those Russkies will inform the world in vain.
They will not make a dent when they accuse
The West of a proclivity to use
Proxies when doing truly naughty things.
What? View the facts? We’ll utterly refuse!
We’ll know the peace that idiocy brings.
The twerps who govern us will live like kings
Forever as they piss on heads like ours.
We’ll sing the song that every coward sings
And grant those pricks extraordinary powers.
We’ll return to the same old servile box
Because we dread the lower primate pox.

Send the Order Out

Send the Order Out

When Pfizer sends the order out,
The CDC – and we – comply
And dare not utter any doubt.
When Pfizer sends the order out,
Big Pharma groupies scream and shout
And sing, repeating every lie.
When Pfizer sends the order out,
The CDC and we comply!

On the Most Current Current Thing We Can Currently Conceive

On the Most Current Current Thing We Can Currently Conceive

Is monkeypox now on the scene?
Let’s blame those sly Chinese!
Our Pharma-Lords will now convene
To drive us to our knees
With lockdowns, masks, a new vaccine.
Most every cunt agrees
That we must serve the firm machine
In such emergencies.

When pricks like Biden tell us straight
In sentences profound
That further slavery is our fate,
Let gratitude abound!
Don’t let suspicion, doubt or hate
In any heart be found.
Our leaders aren’t just wise: they’re great!
Stop monkeying around!

Too Stupid to Be a Hypocrite?

Too Stupid to Be a Hypocrite?

Shea is stupid. Of this there’s no doubt.
Stupid things he’s determined to shout—
Or to tweet. Never ends!
When the Judgment impends,
Will the plea, “I’m a fool,” help him out?

–Tom Riley

Note on the Text

I’m not on Facebook or Twitter anymore, so I don’t see the little verbal twitches that constitute Mark Shea’s reason for existence. But readers of this blog send me screen shots when they’re particularly incensed by his attacks on reason and common human decency. Two recent ones made me briefly consider that Shea might be a hypocrite, destined for the Eighth Circle of Hell according to Dante. But then I reconsidered. Maybe Shea doesn’t have the brains to be hypocritical.

The last shall be first and the first shall be last – so here’s the second tweet sent to me by a real Catholic:

Shea here is attacking Canada’s trucker convoy – at the very moment when Justin Trudeau was unleashing a totalitarian putsch against brave Canadian citizens trying to stand up to ridiculous mask and vaccine mandates. These mandates give Shea more of a thrill than his hypothetical rectal vibrator. I’ll delve into the details a little later. The main point is that comparing Trudeau’s totalitarian actions to Nazi totalitarian actions is not okay according to Shea.

Here’s the first tweet – posted a little over two weeks before:

The point here is that the GOP may take advantage of Brainless Joe Biden’s dementia displays to win the midterm elections – and they shouldn’t… because they’re Nazis!

The hypocrisy is pretty clear, right? In the mind of Shea, it’s plain crazy to compare Trudeau’s totalitarianism to Nazi totalitarianism, and it disqualifies you from being taken seriously the way Fat Boy needs to be taken seriously. Don’t be silly, you Canadian truckers! But it’s A-okay to compare the GOP in this country to Nazis, or even to say that they are Nazis. Indeed, in other venues, Shea has called the Canadian truckers themselves Nazis. There are very few ideological opponents that he hasn’t called Nazis.
Hypocritical rhetoric, yes?

The thing is, though, I’m beginning to doubt that Fat Boy can even see the self-contradiction. The two propositions – “It’s wrong to call your ideological opponents Nazis” and “Shea’s ideological opponents are Nazis” – loiter arm and arm in his skull, and he sees no conflict at all.

He may actually be that stupid.

I do need to note here that I don’t think Trudeau is a Nazi. He’s more of a Commie. But really he’s just a leftist globalist intent on a new brand of pansy tyranny.

Shea, of course, doesn’t really know anything about Nazi Germany – or about history in general. He once maintained that the only evidence for Julius Caesar’s conquest of Gaul was Caesar’s own self-promoting book. But Shea does like to pretend.

Note the reference to self-pity – a recent obsession of Shea’s, and an obvious function of projection. Shea once whined that he was “trying to say yes to God” and “widely hated” on that account. Boo-hoo.

Note furthermore the reference to spreading COVID. Fat Boy apparently still thinks that the COVID vaccines prevent transmission, though it’s been admitted since July of last year that they don’t. I myself caught COVID on Christmas Eve from a relative who had been fully vaccinated and boosted. Almost everyone else in the room caught it, too. I won’t cry about it, Shea fashion, because it wasn’t at all a big deal. I worked out for at least a half-hour every day that I had the disease. And I remain unvaccinated. Pope Francis, go collect your thirty pieces of silver from Chairman Xi.

Fat Boy might fear a different experience with COVID. Though we’re both the same age, he is… well… grossly obese. That makes him especially vulnerable.

And you all have to get the vaccine that doesn’t work or he’ll hold his breath and turn blue!


That’s the Plan, Man

That’s the Plan, Man

The plan of Biden must be carried out—
For otherwise we all are doomed to die.
Although he never had a mind, don’t doubt
The plan of Biden must be carried out.
If you insist on freedom, you’re a lout.
Hey, it’s our Prince of Justice you defy!
The plan of Biden must be carried out—
For otherwise we all are doomed to die.

Big Guy Meets Little O

The Big Guy Meets Little O

Omicron means, of course, “Little O.”
It ain’t little, however, to Joe.
Why, he creams in his pants
As he views his new chance
To see Democrat tyranny grow!

Lasciate Ogni Speranza

Lasciate Ogni Speranza

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here
Unmasked!” The current message from my church
Seems less than welcoming. Is it sincere?
I have no doubt. Voluminous research
Persuades me that the mask is now assessed
As more important than the state of grace.
Masklessness is a sin to be confessed.
Masklessness is a thing from outer space.
I should be pissed instead of entertained.
The clown show, though, is just too much for me.
Government bureaucrats are mealworm-brained—
And churchmen join them in stupidity.
Part of me think it’s absolutely swell
To see such words, as on the Gates of Hell.
