Headline Potpourri #74

Civil War video games are no longer available through a number of a number of online retailers. It is claimed such forms of recreation are “mean spirited”. Yet the ones where you shoot police officers, hijack automobiles, and hump street whores in the backseat are no doubt still available as a testament to the extent to which the nation values free expression.

If Southern Baptists are obligated to renounce all things Southern as a gesture of inclusive good faith to prove how welcoming the denomination is to all people, does the African Methodist Episcopal Church intend to drop the descriptor of “African” from its name and to conduct outreach to Whites by fawning over how wonderful Caucasians and Caucasian culture are?

When clicking to watch a Christian video on Youtube, site administrators ought to respect the ministries utilizing the service enough to place before the content a commercial for something other than a so-called “invisible condom”.

One has been decapitated and over a dozen injured in a terrorist attack at a French fuel refining facility. Does Amazon intend to ban products bearing Islamist symbols similar to those hoisted by the Jihadists during the assault?

Eric Boling on the Five has celebrated retailers banning the sale of Confederate paraphernalia and memorabilia as a triumph of the free market system. But is this the triumph of unfettered capitalism or yet another example of fascistic elites imposing their iron-fisted social engineering? In a free market system, wouldn't those that desire Confederate merchandise be allowed to purchase all that they desired? For is that not the doctrine of the faction of Fox News analysts that extol the economic above all other social spheres when it comes to things such as hard liquor, legalized narcotics, and debauched entertainment?

In his analysis of violent upheavals in Baltimore and Ferguson, Malik Shabazz counseled that those destroying property and rampaging in the streets still needed to be loved. So why isn't he as magnanimous when it comes to his endorsement of a plan to kill any White person in sight irrespective of whether or not they bear responsibility for the terrorist assault upon the Charleston church?

If a colon test advertised on the radio is a noninvasive smear of digestive effluent, why is one required to have a prescription for it?

The gays have accomplished for now what decades and centuries ago most would have considered impossible. It is now our turn to plant seeds and warp minds in a long game where this cultural outrage can be one day overturned either reformationally or constitutionally

Perhaps the Southern Baptist Convention should be abandoned for the establishment of a Confederate Baptist Convention or a Confederate League Of Christian Churches where people of all backgrounds will be welcomed but that will not put up with the bashing of traditional Americanism or White folks as seems to be becoming an epidemic in many allegedly orthodox and conservative churches. It was said on a news special designed to work everyone into a terror over summer weather claimed that interest in survival training is at an all time high. Now doubt because of a love of nature. Likely nothing to do whatsoever with rampaging inner city mobs, the abolition of the Confederate flag, and the federal recognition of sodomite matrimony.

A news program designed to work everyone up into a terror lover summer weather listed the equipment one ought to take during a trek through the wilderness. Shouldn't a firearm have also been on the list?

A news program designed to work viewers up into a terror over summer weather revealed that the hottest days of the year occur during the season. That statements has got to be a contender for the No “You No What” Sherlock Award

On “It's Academic”, Hillary Howard is in a sleeveless blouse. In his decades hosting, did Mack McGary ever appear on the program sleeveless?

In a panel discussion at the Southern Baptist Convention, ethicist Russell Moore admonished that Christian parents shouldn't be ashamed of their gay children. That is, because Moore went on to assure, most gays aren't like the activists depicted in the media. Does Moore intend to extend the same broadminded charity to Christians that refuse to take down the Confederate flag or refuse to give up Conservative talk radio? Moore has heaped homiletical condemnation and mockery upon Christians that disagreed with his leftist inclinations regarding these cultural practices.

It might not be for some time to come. However, there will eventually be a movement of to get the Supreme Court to legalize cannibalism as a human right. The court has already ruled similarly in favor of other assorted unthinkable depravities. The edict will be handed down either in regard to some form of human flesh grown in a lab or of dissidents no longer categorized as being fully human. Just recently, global warming critics were described by a federal functionary as "abnormal", perhaps one of the greatest insults that can be applied in a system that values group conformity and the collective over that of the individual.

Univision removed the Miss USA pageant from its programming schedule over Donald Trump's insightful observation that the swarms of illegals pouring over America's borders aren't exactly the cream of the crop in terms of human capital. In response, Trump has threatened to sue the network. But how is the removal of Trump's beauty pageant from the airwaves markedly different than his demand that the Confederate flag be removed from public display?

A number of Republicans are being pressured to refund campaign contributions from an organization known as the Council of Conservative Citizens because of the group's less than enthusiastic endorsement of interracial relationships. Should Democrats be forced to return donations from the variety of ethnosupremacist front groups drawn to that party's ideology of heavy-handed statist interventionism such as the NAACP and La Raza? And what of potential contributors to Democrats actually linked to advocating revolutionary violence such as CAIR or the Occupy Movement? FBI files reveal that Obama advisor Valerie Jarret has a Communist pedigree that can be traced back for decades. Therefore, shouldn't concerns be raised over Obama's questionable links as rigorously as Ted Cruz's or even Mike Huckabee speaking before an event with shady sponsorship
