Sweet, sweet music for The Day of the Pillow – by John Bradley.
Sweet dreams, Boomers.
Nice try, WordPress! Still pushing the infantile Block system. Great. I logged in today and *BAM!* the interface shifted. For the second time in a year I had to manually reset the new default to the classic word-processing system. A blog in crisis? Not quite. Ain’t the technology grand?
In the war on civilization itself, music, like everything else, is “racist.”
One of the significant aspects of the current revolutionary madness sweeping the nation is the unrestrained assault on the cultural artifacts of Western Christian civilization. In effect the attack on monuments and the nomenclature of Army forts, schools and streets, and on so much more is emblematic of something more profound and irreparable, an assault on what those symbols signify.
In a broader sense, this assault portends a basic denial of the richness and nourishing fruits of our culture and what that culture has given us. For that denial goes far beyond visible symbols in copper and granite or in place names. We have seen this in the increasing demands for a Taliban-like “cultural cleansing” of our society. And thus the mounting attacks on our artistic heritage—on those works of art that remind us of what our civilization has created and, indeed, of its bounty, goodness and creativity that have helped fashion who we are as a people.
The effects are particularly dramatic in performance music. Our musical expression gives voice to our joys, our sadness, our triumphs, our beliefs, and how we view ourselves; it is critical to our understanding of the civilization around us. Yet for decades there has been a constant effort to undermine and reshape that expression to fit a progressivist, post-Marxist mold and agenda. A concentration on race and gender is all-consuming. “Anti-racism” and “feminism” have become the benchmarks for this transformation.
The formerly great universities begin to slash away at the musical heritage of our People.
The University of Oxford is considering scrapping sheet music for being ‘too colonial’ after staff raised concerns about the ‘complicity in white supremacy’ in music curriculums.
Professors are set to reform their music courses to move away from the classic repertoire, which includes the likes of Beethoven and Mozart, in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Vox Day nailed the lazy academic idiocy behind the push towards savagery: The music teachers don’t want to actually teach music anymore. They want to sit around, play rap, and talk about how racist white people are.” He’s also wisely building a musical channel at UATV. It’s to him and us because the traditional sources will soon SJW themselves into oblivion.
There is a Supremacist element to the highest music, a testament to White European Civilization without equal. It’s just better, superior – as Benedict Beckeld explains:
They hate what they cannot equal, replicate, or even understand. The shame of the situation is that so many nominally on our side – conservatards and libertardians – just can’t grasp the identitarian and cultural implications. Fraudulent elections and ancient scraps of paper will not hold back the log-thumping heathens. Listen up … while you still can.
The man, who was not identified by officials, was unarmed and did not harm any personnel and there is no indication that the individual has any links to extremist groups.
I call BS on that. He’s obviously a “White supremacist” and likely anti-abortion Christian bent on hijacking AF1 for the insurrection. Never forget 1/6! Kamala Biden is the President! They’d better go ahead and stand down the entire military.
More hidden admissions from the CDC: Uh-Oh.
Ann Barnhardt really can’t be praised enough for catching this:
Do you see what I see? Again, this includes all the Stage 4 cancers, strokes, kidney failures and accident victims who were suspected of corona. Now allow me to convert those “official” mortality rates into survival rates, to make it easier to understand and share, and judge for yourself if everything, especially everything related to young people, should continue to be cancelled, or, NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.
0-19 years old: 99.997% survival
20-49 years old: 99.98% survival
50-69 years old: 99.5% survival
70+ years old: 94.6% survival
And again, the real numbers are even 4x-5x better than these. Never mind that half the people over 70 who died were probably murdered in nursing homes.
Get the word out, folks. Time to end this.
At the rate these numbers keep falling, by the time next year when they lie that Mars is attacking, “Coronavirus” will probably be credited with saving lives.
Another tale of a likely patsy in the international ISIS game – with a twist!
If they pulled off the kind of attack they were hoping to, it would mean “rock star status baby,” Matthews said. “This could be Netflix worthy.”
Besides attacks on the US, Matthews and Molina talked extensively about traveling overseas to join ISIS in Syria, the affidavit says.
Netflix worthy… Does that mean the “attack” would inspire millions of normie idiots to support and suborn mass international distribution of child molestation? Wait, are they saying the CIA also created Netflix?
The churchian heretics are at it again, spreading worldly misinformation in the name of the devil’s narrative. The Southern Baptist Convention was a bulwark against the forces of modernity. Now, it is part and parcel with the rot. The SBC is dropping “Southern” from its name because “racist” or something. Among all the lunacy, this sentence, also previously parroted by “Pope” Francis, from President J.D. Greear stands out: “Our Lord Jesus was not a White Southerner but a brown-skinned Middle Eastern refugee.”
No, He was not. Here, they try to blend too recent SJW narratives into one in order to curry favoritism with the enemies of Christ and all Christians. The color of Christ’s skin is an open and irrelevant point of speculation. But, He was not a refugee.
As God, He held and continues to hold Total Dominion over all Creation, even, indirectly, that temporarily given to the prince of the SJW’s world. As a man, He was a citizen by birth of the Judean client state of the Roman Empire. His parents – I’ve read this somewhere – were on a trip to satisfy their government’s edicts. How was He a refugee while transiting His own land? He wasn’t.
The fact that Herod decided to persecute Jesus and other young males (like an ancient Planned Parenthood!) is as irrelevant as the Lord’s pigment levels. One will note that the Eastern Wise Men came to Christ – He and His Family did not flee to them. And, according to the churchian Judeo-christians, wouldn’t Herod’s evil actions be justified by Romans 13 anyway? By these people’s warped reasoning, Christ was at best a criminal on the run from the “law.” As a matter of fact, didn’t one B. Shapiru say exactly that?
Good Baptists: a descriptive title is just that. You’d be far better to drop the SBC and its lies.
3,000! THREE THOUSAND posts since the blog began back in 2012. I’ve been running a little hard lately. In the near term, I may slow just a hair to concentrate on some projects, but folks, we’re only just warming up, here.
This report came in on Monday:
4 Million words in 20.5 months. That’s a little high – it’s probable that the total accounts for many articles, etc. that were checked at least twice. Still, I’d estimate it’s really more like 2 Million, or roughly 97,500 per month, 3,200 words a day. That’s about right. I average in the top 2-3% of users for volume and for unique words. Mistakes too, as many of you know.
Anyway, this is 3,000. No. 2,999 was about Amazon publishing:
Know idea what’s up next. Rest assured, you will read it here. More to come!
And, Thank You, All! – P
The afternoon repost of an exclusive short story. Very Good.
It was on this day back in 1965 that Mr. and Mrs. Ironsides welcomed their second little bundle of joy.
(I imagine he’s still shunning the AARP card)
Soon, and very soon, he gets his second and then third major literary outings. FOR NOW! Here’s a special birthday short just for the old blog!
Carmyn Larck’s Quiet Little House, Highlands, NC, Thursday, January 2, 2020…
The slamming of the front door woke him up. The giggling and the expeditious girl talk got his attention. The loud banging sound and the laughter prompted him from the sheets. While he yawned and fumbled his way into some old USMC sweats, he heard the patter of feet and furtive whispers. He thought something was crinkling. About the time he reached the bedroom door, the house became altogether silent. He looked…

We’re getting to be about as close to Star Trek as we area away from antebellum slavery. Still, of the latter TIME magazine can’t LET IT GO.
Americans are likely to think of New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day as a time to celebrate the fresh start that a new year represents, but there is also a troubling side to the holiday’s history. In the years before the Civil War, the first day of the new year was often a heartbreaking one for enslaved people in the United States.
In the African-American community, New Year’s Day used to be widely known as “Hiring Day” — or “Heartbreak Day,” as the African-American abolitionist journalist William Cooper Nell described it — because enslaved people spent New Year’s Eve waiting, wondering if their owners were going to rent them out to someone else, thus potentially splitting up their families. The renting out of slave labor was a relatively common practice in the antebellum South, and a profitable practice for white slave owners and hirers.
They’re also upset that blacks continue to go to church. About the level of Debbie Downering one would expect from a publication who chose Greta the human shield as last year’s prominent person. They lament the splitting of families temporarily in ancient history that everyone else had forgotten, but they would have no problem doing the same thing today, splitting up families, communities, and nations by sending half of all workers God-knows-where around the globe in pursuit of free trade.
On a positive note, I may have to re-read but I think they avoided blaming Donald Trump for breaking up slave families or for that attack on the church in New York. Hope?
