A New Year, A New Day

I got out some old vinyl records last night and tried to boo gee like I did when I was a lad, but the times they have a chang'ed. Not a moment too soon.

I Am the Wa-allahrus Lyrics

The Biet-allahs

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are ummah all together.
See how they run like pigs from a Muslim, see how they fly.
I'm crying.

Sitting on a prayermat, waiting for the imam to come.
Haliburton Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Sunday.
IMAM, you been an infidel, you should let your beard grow long.
I am the iman, they are the imam, I am the wa-allahrus,
koo koo k'kabba

Mecca City taliban sitting
Pretty little imams in a row.
See how they pray like Aisha on a date, see how they cry.
I'm crying.
I'm cry------------ing, I'm crying.

Yellow coran custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye.
Crabakoran fish-mo, pornographic imam,
Boy, you been a naughty kafir and you let your gellebiah down.
I am the imam, they are the imam, I am the wa-allahrus,
koo koo k'kabba.

Sitting in a Janna garden waiting for the Mo.
If the Mo don't come, you get stoned from
Standing in the rain of rocks.
I am the imam, they are the imam, I am the wa-allahrus,
koo koo k'kabba, koo koo koo k'kabba.

And to think I used to like this stuff. Thank God I'm older now, and wiser. Bud Wiser.

No Knews is Good Knews

As the world gets busier and sillier by the nano-second, the world is swamped with more silliness and busy bodies. I intend to do my part, as my New Year's Eve Resolution says on the card I got, to cut down on information, facts, and details. Yes, dear reader, I resolve to do you a huge favor by writing only stuff of genuine worth and ya-ya.

Information Overload Predicted To Be The Office Scourge Of 2008

Thursday December 27, 2007

E-mail. Phones going off. Program upgrades. New reports. Constant updates.

Welcome to your office in 2008.

That's what a company named Basex, which calls itself a "knowledge management" specialist, predicts you'll be facing in the New Year. The worker productivity firm believes information overload will become an even bigger scourge than it already is and the number one office menace in the year ahead.

The think tank claims constant interruptions from phone calls and email - ironically two technologies that were supposed to improve productivity - have helped kill it instead by coming in tidal waves that most workers find hard to keep up with.

"It's too much information. It's too many interruptions. It's too much lost time," warns Basex chief analyst Jonathan Spira. "It's always too much of a good thing." The problem isn't a lack of information, it's too much of it. The more there is, the more you have to keep track of. And the more time you spend looking for just the right nugget buried somewhere in that deep pile of records, the less you're actually getting done.


Yes, dear reader, I am resolved to do you a major favor by writing only the best stuff about things of real importance. I've decided to write the story of my short but tragic life as a libretto for the opera I've been composing all these years. You're gonna love it as much as you love my real life story, maybe more.

But, I say, enough of me. How do you like my shoes?

Looking forward to a whole new year and your company during the time we have together. Happy New Year, friend.

Left Dhimmi Fascism

Esther at Islam in Europe provides this story:

Denmark: Converts to Islam are left-wing oriented

A sixth of Danish converts to Islam oppose democracy, but that's because they are left-wing oriented, explain researchers. A new study among 130 Danish converts to Islam shows that a sixth don't think their new religious convictions can be combined with democracy.

Some of the Danish converts felt the need to say that they have become Muslims and now follow something different. For some there's a bit of a protest in saying that they don't think Islam and democracy can co-exist, says Kate Østergaard, a religion historian at Copenhagen University, whose research can be read in the book "New Muslims in Denmark" (Nye muslimer i Danmark). She adds that there are about 4,000 converts in Denmark.

But though only 1/6 are direct opponents of democracy, Islam is more important than democracy for more than half of the converts. According to Kate Østergaard, half of the converts think that Islam will rule society. They think that democracy is an Islamic principle and that it is therefore possible to have an Islamic society that is either based on democracy or has democratic elements.

Anthropologist Tina Gudrun Jensen, who co-wrote the book, thinks that the missing concept of democracy is due to that most converts are left-wing oriented.

She says that opposition to democracy for some go together with the fact that they are generally critical of the modern capitalistic and materialistic society and those are the same attitudes of left-wing oriented groups in the 60's and 70's. Factually, many converts are very much left-wing oriented.

The basic argument of this blog is that the Left is fascist. Take the pillar of corporatism in fascism and you'll find it in socialism four square. Individualism? It doesn't square with communitarianism. Private property? It's definitely at odds with the collective being. The Great Leaderprincip? How can one have a democracy with such? Eco-privilege at the expense of Humanism? The list goes on. The triumph of The Golden Age in a return to prelapsarian neo-feudalism? The Metal Mythologies of the vanguard of the Party? All fascism, all Left. The exultations of Gnostic Irrationalism? The Cult of Death and the Grand Gesture? Look no further than the pro-jihadi Left apologists. Exceptionalism of the Volk? The Palestinians? Looks so to me if not openly admitted to by the Left. And so on it goes on. The Left is a fascism. Point to point, the Left is a fascism, and is too Islam. If the fit ain't perfect, the Left will convert slowly but slowly till there's no difference at all. Give them a few more years to get over the shock of finding themselves religious fanatics and they'll be just fine. The Volk the Ummah? Why not? The Great Leader is Mohammed the Perfect Man? Sure to be seen. Racial purity laws? Dhimmitude and Jew-hatred. Soil Mysticism? Turn to Mecca five times per day and tell me if I'm wrong. Is the Left a fascism? You tell me.

Esther at Islam in Europe provides another piece of the picture, this from the Eutopia of Sweden:

Sweden: Supreme court judge supports polygamy and incest

The following article was picked up by Al-Arabiya and then by Memri. For some reason Al-Arabiya forgot to mention that Lindskog does not exactly advocate the Muslim lifestyle. In fact, he's a good example of the 'decadent West'. And why not? If there's no ethical code and anything goes, why can't two or more adults decide on their own how they want to live their life?

Sweden's soon-to-be newest supreme court judge, Stefan Lindskog, wants to change the marriage code and make polygamy legal. He also wants to give other lifestyles more judicial protection.

He says he thinks it's strange that just one sexual relationship can enter into a cohabitation contract. If a man lives together with ten wives, today nine of them wouldn't deserve legal protection because they have chosen a different lifestyle, and Lindskog thinks that's wrong.

Lindskog wants to completely separate the judicial and moral and thinks that the state shouldn't interfere on religious or private-moral reasons in how people live together.

He says that today marriage consists of the judicial, the religious and the moral. Why can't people limit legislation to the judicial, with one cohabitation contract as regulated in the legal code, regardless of sexual tendencies and regardless of whether a person has only one sexual relationship.

A person can imagine two brothers, or a mother and a son living together - an odd constellation that happens, but that legislation does not care about today. There's also a need for regulation on that.

The demand for judicial protection for forms of lifestyles other than marriage have been made in the past by Gudrun Schyman's Feminist Initiative party. http://islamineurope.blogspot.com/2007/12/sweden-supreme-court-judge-supports.html

Freedom? What is Nothing? Freedom is hardly emptiness in search of fulfillment. The emptiness, the vacuum, abhors a vacuum. The defeat of meaning is the search for certainty. The defeat of order is the search for order. The hatred of Reason is the search for the Irrational. There is no "Nothing." The escape from Freedom is the leap into slavery and submission.

When anything goes, everything goes. Welcome your self to Islam, the Total Way of Life.

The Left is on its way slowly but with increasing rapidity toward the primitive. From philobarbarism to barbarism in person is a short leap of nihilism. Of that our Left is certainly capable. In fact, they are capable of nothing else. Give it ten years and Islam will be the fascism of choice for all those who cannot stand Modernity. Trust the Party, trust the Ulema. Freedom is Slavery. Slavery is Perfect Submission. Problem solved.

Smooth Sailing into a Technicolor Future

All this because of the spinch crop failure in Pakistan. Will this madness ever end? Benazir Blutto, Daughter of Zulfikar Ali Blutto, has been assassinated, and nary a popeyed by-stander to save her. What are the details, and what do the details mean? Well, luckily you've come to the authoritative site to find out just that:

One Murder Closer To A Nuclear Nightmare In Pakistan

December 30, 2007

She had been warned by her security detail not to put herself at risk by exposing herself in the middle of seething crowds. But Benazir Bhutto, fatalist and populist to the last, could not resist.
Moments earlier she had addressed an adulatory mass, convincing them and herself that her party could win next month's parliamentary elections and allow her to taste power once again in her beloved homeland.

On the way out of Liaqat Bagh Park in the centre of Rawalpindi – the garrison town that neighbours the capital, Islamabad – she felt relatively safe. Security had been tight and the chance to grandstand on the home turf of incumbent President Pervez Musharraf was too good to miss.

As her white bulletproof Land Cruiser left the park, her driver was forced to slow down to negotiate a path through the crowds. Bhutto stood up and out of the sun roof, smiling and waving from under her traditional white headscarf.

Grainy video footage shows that as the car passed, a gunman just a few feet behind raised his weapon and fired three times in Bhutto's direction. Then the area around the car erupted in a fireball as a suicide bomber flung himself at the vehicle.

What happened next is, extraordinarily, a matter of debate. Some witnesses, backed by doctors who treated the opposition leader, say she was hit in the neck and shoulder by two bullets, one of which severely damaged her spinal cord. Then she was hit by shrapnel from the bomb, which added to her already terrible injuries. She fell down through the hatch, fatally injured and slumped on the car's back seat in a pool of blood.

Bizarrely, the Pakistan government asserted that her death was more like a grisly accident than an assassination – that the former prime minister died when the blast from the bomb threw her sideways and she smashed her head on the metal lever that opened the sun roof. The blow shattered her skull, they said, an injury from which she subsequently died. The claim came conveniently after Bhutto's body was buried on Friday, just a day after her death, in accordance with Muslim custom.

However she died, the darkest fears of her supporters, who had welcomed the 54-year-old head of the Bhutto political clan home from exile just two months ago, had become a reality. Their political hope was now a blood-soaked corpse.


Does this leave the world with the possibility on the horizon of a nuclear-armed jihadi nation of Pakistan? One might hope. And that's all one may do reasonably at this time: Hope. It is a good hope that we will find our enemies so threatening that we of the Modern West will come to stop worrying and love the bomb. War, a savage and terrible thing, is also a needed thing in the Human experience, a cleansing and a purging. War, the great catharsis of the soul, will come regardless of our wishes against it. How will we meet it? On whose terms? The pot-smoking shriekers can do as they please, war will still come. No matter the idiotic cliches and drug-induced ramblings of hippies, war comes. War is a condition of Man. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. War is reality.

Tis the Season to be Mo Jolly (3)

Truepeers, my colleague at Covenant Zone, has some Christmas cheer of his own in the piece briefly quoted below, a masterstroke of non-irenic writing. Anirenic? Excuse my Greek.

We have a hyper-groupie at a city blog here in Vancouver from which we are occasionally doused with coolness and nonpareil usage of our language. Sean! What a guy. Peers. Yes, a real guy. In his introduction to his latest he writes:

Since we've been voted "most obtusely anachronistic and semantic" blog by Sean, the anti-Les Nessman of a groovy, post-coo-ool blog, I've gone looking for truer signs of the times about which to wax runic:

See http://covenantzone.blogspot.com/2007/12/age-of-transparencies.html

I love it, " to wax runic...." Intentional or not, the mixed metaphor is brilliant, as one expects from True Peers as opposed to nonpareil peers. Runes, as most of our reader will notice on the surface of it, are engraved, and to wax them is to create a further work on 'material' material. Peers' proud effort is about, among other things, the aethereal images of Facebook and the misgivings of controllers who know not reality from ideals. Funny? Maybe only to a few. Not to Sean, our critic who writes so variantly. (That is to say, in Mandarin, with courage.) Simply on the face of it, though, "to wax runic" is my favorite phrase of the year.

Life just keeps getting better. Why? Well, but of course: Tis the Season to be Mo Jolly.

No ireny intended, Sean.
