Headline Potpourri #51

The FCC plan to infiltrate American newsrooms with government operatives is being proposed on the grounds of ascertaining the “perceived responsiveness to underserved populations.” That is a euphemism for sexual deviants, women that want to kill unborn babies, and the kinds of minorities that threaten to destroy property or inflict bodily harm should they hear a pronoun with a questionable vocal intonation.

On an episode of Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson and his wife justified bequeathing their eldest son a larger portion of their estate in their will on the grounds that such was mandated in the Bible. But doesn’t the same portion of Scripture commanding such also forbid one from eating duck?

A sheet of toilet paper would conceal more than the bikini bottoms featured on this year’s swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated.

Regarding the National Geographic network program “Survive The End Of The World”. When a approach is taken to propagandize on behalf of global warming, the narrative is celebrated as educational and informative. However, if similar disasters are presented from the perspective as prophetic warnings of God's eventual judgment, the program would be condemned for promoting irrational fear and baseless speculation.

In light of the California drought, assorted government functionaries such as the President admonished that we all must sacrifice in order to curtail the impact of global warming on the environment. Unless, of course, if you want to play multiple rounds of golf at exclusive manicured clubs in otherwise arid environments.

On an episode of Comic Book Men, Dean Cain remarked that his time spent playing Superman was a remarkable start to his career. Has he done anything of significance since then? The National Geographic tribute of slain snakehandler Jamie Coots was broadcast within a week of his death at the hands of a serpent. This forces one to ask that, like a number of celebrity obituaries, did the network have this retrospective in the can waiting for the inevitable?

So if we are to be so color blind as to accept a Black actor to play the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four remake, why don't they go ahead and cast a White actor to play the role in a Marvel Black Panther movie.

A sheet of toilet paper would conceal more than the bikini bottoms featured on the cover of the 2014 swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.

On an episode of Snake Salvation, Pastor Andrew Hamblin remarked that the serpents handled by his sect should be seen as no more bizarrely than the free dinners offered by many Baptists. In all fairness, both can be just as deadly.

Apparently the military is the only portion of the budget that Obama will cut from. Will wake up some morning to a scene from Red Dawn with Chinese and Russian soldiers parachuting into American towns and cities.

Interesting. So its improper to advertise junk foods in school but acceptable to handout worksheets on how to masturbate.

In the opening scene of Superman: The Movie, Ursa (the wench that ran with General Zod) was accused of possessing such hatred of men that it threatened the planet's children. In essence, she must have been Krypton's chief abortionist or ran that world's equivalent of Planned Parenthood.

So did Erin Burnett of CNN get as outraged over Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin a "twat" and a "cunt" as she did over Ted Nugent calling Obama a "sub-human mongrel" and "liar"?

On the Discovery Channel program Clash In The Ozarks, how about telling viewers why the protagonist is about to have his family’s property seized by the bank. If it’s because he’s a moonshine guzzling deadbeat that doesn’t work and his not paying the bills, why shouldn’t he lose his home?

On CNN, opposition to the Arizona bill that would allow businesses to deny services to homosexuals if so doing would violate the religious beliefs of the owners was justified on the grounds that 55% of Arizona residents supported homosexual marriage. So should this trend reverse itself and 55% of the residents went back to opposing homosexual marriage, would CNN propagandists come out in favor of the legislation?

So if Senator Harry Reid is going to condemn the Coke Brothers as “unAmerican” for their efforts to undermine Obamacare, does he intend to also label George Soros as unAmerican for his effort to collapse entire currencies and economies?

A student winning a case where he had been denied the freedom to hand out Constitutions is to be commended for standing up for his rights. Another way to have undermined the prohibition would have been to quietly set one copy at a time in places such as in restrooms or on a table in the dining hall.

So regarding these churches that flaunt the term “multiethnic” in their mission statements. Is that just a snobby way of vocalizing a generalized loathing of White folks? In regards to evangelism and such, is the urgency of someone’s need to hear the gospel message determined by skin color with that decreasing in an inverse proportion in relation to the number in the congregation already of that particular skin color or ethnicity? And if outreach methods are to be modified to appeal to assorted audiences and demographics, will there be any specifically targeting Whites that who, though do not necessarily bear those of other backgrounds any particular ill will, are turned off by the anti-Americanism and anti-Western proclivities inherent to multiculturalism. After all, those of the other backgrounds for the most part were the ones that came knocking to be let in out door. You don’t go into someone else’s house and then proceed to urinate all over the living room rug.

Instructive. Pope Francis has gone out of his way to denigrate capitalism but apparently holds a book party to brownnose the founder of Liberation Theology. In light of this and the British cardinal condemning welfare reform in the United Kingdom, if the Catholic hierarchy is asserting a renewed emphasis on the plight of the poor, why doesn’t the Vatican sell off its astronomical observatories and the like. While nice luxuries, no where in Scripture are those listed as a ministry priority. Or, as is the case of elites in the Emergent Church movement, is poverty something to be imposed upon the idiot pew fillers while the bigshots continue to ride high on the hog?

The cover article of the 3/7/14 issue of Commonweal Magazine is titled “Why The Amish Get Out?” The same secularists and religious leftists that often praise the Amish up one end and down the other would probably want the remainder of conservative Evangelicals and Roman Catholics wiped out for espousing views, such on marriage between one man and woman and the need to protect children from corrupting influences, that aren’t all that divergent from that held by the Amish once you get past the buggies and bonnets. Thus, what the magazine admires about the Amish is the sect’s rejection of technological capitalism and consumerism. With the exception of course being that which keeps the publication and its assorted sponsors afloat.
