commented on Charles Krafft Is a White
Nationalist Who Believes the Holocaust Is a Deliberately Exaggerated Myth
DON'T BE NAIVE! Charles Krafft is actually the occult spawn of Karl Kraft, the Nazis' Nostradamus: [from Wikip]: Krafft moved into the orbit of the National Socialist elite in November 1939 when he made a remarkable prediction. He predicted that the Führer's life would be in danger between 7 and 10 November.
On 8 November, a bomb exploded at the Munich beer hall. There were many injuries but the target, Adolf Hitler, was unscathed because he left the assembly in the hall a few minutes before the explosion. In January 1940, Krafft began work on a pro-German evaluation of Nostradamus. In the spring of 1940 he gave a private horoscope reading for Hitler to an aide. but he never met his leader. Later he boasted to friends that he mentioned that the time for an attack on the USSR was some way off. Hitler, impatient to launch Operation Barbarossa after he had dealt with the West, in fact delayed his operations in the east until the following June. The stunning success of the early days of Barbarossa convinced him that Krafft had great powers....He wrote to a senior official predicting that British bombs would very soon destroy the Propaganda ministry in Berlin (another true statement). The letter was passed on to the Gestapo who viewed it as treasonous. He was incarcerated in foul conditions, contracted typhus, and eventually died on 8 January 1945 in the Buchenwald concentration camp.

commented on The Annual "Baby, It's Cold Outside" Discussion
The joke about the spiked drink isn't the creepiest thing about "Baby, It's Cold Outside." The creepiest thing is that it was played at a party in Colorado attended by a religious young Egyptian, Sayyid Qutb, who was so upset by the sexy way people danced to it that he decided that American culture, and Americans, should die. As Mark Steyn wrote in his review of Lawrence Wright's masterpiece The Looming Tower:
"What was so awful about Sayyid Qutb's experience in America that led him to regard modernity as an abomination? Well, he went to a dance in Greeley, Colo. a dance in Greeley, Colo.: 'The room convulsed with the feverish music from the gramophone. Dancing naked legs filled the hall, arms draped around the waists, chests met chests, lips met lips . . .'
In 1949, Greeley, Colo., was dry. The dance was a church social. The feverish music was Frank Loesser's charm song Baby, It's Cold Outside. But it was enough to start a chain that led from Qutb to Zawahiri in Egypt to bin Laden in Saudi Arabia to the mullahs in Iran to the man arrested in Afghanistan on Sept. 11. And it's a useful reminder of how much we could give up and still be found decadent and disgusting by the Islamists. A world without Baby, It's Cold Outside will be very cold indeed."

commented on The Lives and Deaths of Donalds Foster and Young
Tom Robbins told me Don Foster kicked out a window in his own gallery to cheer up Tom, who was upset because his Happening, called "Stronger Than Dirt," was not happening. This was because the star of the event was a vacuum cleaner salesman whose gizmo blew bubbles that could fill a room, and the salesman got lost because Foster/White Gallery was on Occidental, which is interrupted by the park. As the no-show bubbleblower got later and later, Tom got more agitated. So Don said, "Tom, you're the most uptight person here," and kicked out the window to get him loosened up. Only then did Tom join his own Happening.

commented on Slog Bible Study: 1 Corinthians 14:34-35
As Garry Wills notes in his superb book "What Paul Meant," it seems clear that this passage was added to Paul's original letter by later male chauvinist pigs -- because in this same letter, Paul says women should keep their heads covered WHILE SPEAKING UP AND PROPHESYING IN CHURCH. Paul did not contradict himself in the same letter, he was contradicted by later dicks. It was Paul's message of sexual egalitarianism they silenced. Many of the first Christian prophets and Christian leaders, like Phoebe of Corinth, were women, and Paul honored them. As the church backslid from its original egalitarianism to the male-hierarchical model, we got the present rapist-priest Catholic church. Anybody who wants to attack Christianity should first learn its true, sad history.
