Unsympathetic Characters

It’s the rare two-headed GLoP this week as Jonah Goldberg is traveling. But that doesn’t mean it’s still not 100% fun: we’ve got some Rank Punditry® on Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie, we’ve got some views on the ScarJo dust up with Disney, we’ve got some opinions on the humongous South Park deal and why Trey Parker and Matt Stone are probably the savviest businessmen in Hollywood. All that and other assorted laughs, slightly risqué jokes, and juvenile references. You know, a regular GLoP.

    Somalis have not contributed to America. (Ayaan Hirsi Ali being an exception.) I’m fine with Afghannis coming to America if they give up Islam.

    And it would need to be enforced. One trip to a mosque, and back to Afghanistan they go!

    So JPod and Rob Long really believe that Afghanis would benefit our society and that everyone who is concerned about Afghani refugees is racist? Do they honestly believe that Afghanis will be like Vietnamese immigrants?

    I can’t prove your statement wrong, but it’s probably that the evidence it is wrong involves people working who are too busy to be politically or even socially “visible.” There are good people from everywhere. Also bad people from everywhere, and of every faith.

    Yeah but some cultures and religions stink, I’m sure there were nice Mayans but human sacrifice was lauded by their culture and religion.

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali will tell you herself that most Muslim immigrants and refugees admitted to the U.S. believe she should be killed as an apostate.  

    What percentage would personally carry out the death sentence against her, if they had the chance, I’m not sure.  But most of them would be restrained by practical considerations, like going to jail, rather than respect for human life.  Which is not part of their religion, as far as I can tell.

    My dream is to have all prospective immigrants asked whether they agree that apostates from their faith must be put to death.  If they say yes, then they should not be admitted to the United States.  (No doubt some judge would rule merely asking the question is religious discrimination!)

    I think for many of them, they were being targeted by another sect, more than by non-muslims which mostly don’t exist in that part of the world.  So, it may be that shiites want to come here so they can be “free” to practice their own type of oppression, without having to worry that they might be targeted by sunnis etc.  It looks to them like our society will protect them from other sects of islam, but our society refuses to protect itself from islam in general.

    That does seem to happen a lot, but what’s the solution other than not letting the first generation come in?  Can we let them stay, but they have to send their kids to Afghanistan or something?

    hi everybody!

     

    I recently became a paying member after munching on the episodes for free.

    I went back and listen to the majority of the past GLOP episodes (the available ones, there are technical problems). I would prefer less political commentary even if I agree with pretty much all that is said. I like the cultural commentary. For politics, I have the Commentary Podcast, National Review (I’m a subscriber) and the Dispatch (I’m a muncher). Sometimes I just want to be away from reality, and now is such a time, I want to forget I live in a country ruled by incompetent and vile socialists for 19 of the last 26 years (Portugal) and that sleepy Joe is the current president of the USA (being preceded by the twin towering figures, Obama the cynic and Trump the fool).

     So, please, pretty please with ketchup on top, more commentary about long gone Broadway Stars from the 1930s and closeted homosexuals of the silent era.

    PS: Afghans that collaborated with the western forces, deserve our support and should be welcomed and their families too. BUT! The idea that the garden variety Afghan is immigration material of the same sort the “boat people” were, is naive at best. I love John Podhoretz but welcoming thousands of Afghans is akin to welcome SS divisions. You would be top on their list, John.

    Trump the fool

    You’ve definitely picked (one of) the right podcast(s) for that, in terms of the hosts, but I don’t think you’ll find much agreement among the general membership.  (There are some exceptions, a couple of which are among the reasons many of the members would appreciate an “Ignore” feature.)  It may be that you are another victim of the foreign media, which perhaps even moreso than the domestic media was intent on making everyone think Trump was stupid/evil/etc.  So perhaps there is still hope.  But regardless, it’s not a sentiment widely shared among the memership; although once again, many/most of the podcast hosts appear to have bought the media line.  (Some of them are IN the media!)

    Dear Kedavis

     

    Though I butcher the grammar of your fine language, I have a good understanding of the English language and  I get my news directly. From the source. I read and listen to a fair share of alternative commentary. Scott Adams, Ben Shapiro, Gad Saad, Dave Rubin, Breitbart, Milo Yanopoulos, Mike Cernovich, etc. I subscribed to National Review, at one point I subscribed to the American Conservative, WSJ, etc…

    I’ve been a conservative with libertarian leanings all my life. A staunch pro-American and Pro Israeli. And Donald Trump is just a narcissist, that’s it. There isn’t anything else. He does not commit to conservative ideas or a capitalist marketplace. I’m still surprised how he managed to lose the last election! All he had to do was shut his mouth and stop tweeting. The democrats were hagging themselves! 

    But what I think has no consequence. I’m a small minority in my country and I don’t vote in the US. Consider me a friend. I do pay for some of your conservative publications, I guess I help. The point of my post was to express my desire for more cultural commentary. Thanks for replying to me.

    Welcome to Ricochet, Jorge!  I think a fair amount of the Ricochet membership would agree with your assessment of Donald Trump but a lot of people have just stopped talking about it because they are tired of the argument.

    I honestly didn’t want to comment about politics. I just want to hear about second rate vaudeville actors that only John knows about. The only politics I want to hear and comment on are the juicy tidbits of the Duc de Saint  Simon (i bought the kindle edition because of Glop)

    And that’s cool, because Ricochet is about so much more than politics.  There are a bunch of special interest groups for people interested in photography, baseball, science fiction, and a ton of other stuff.

    Here’s what I love about Glop.

    It’s like being invited to a table with 3 great guys that you wish were your friends.

    I hear some of the episodes 3 or 4 times. That’s the only podcasts I listen to episodes more than once. It’s really engaging. At the moment (for several complex reasons) it’s the only podcast I listen to. I suffer while I wait for the next episode. I check every day! 

    PS: The guys can relax, I will never try to meet them in person and I don’t have a wall at home with their pictures.

    But you could get a GLoP Culture t-shirt!  Comes in a variety of colors, and if you don’t like t-shirts you can get it as a sweatshirt or tank-top.

    If you ever feel like writing about politics or culture in your own country, Jorge, I bet people would enjoy it.  I don’t know of any other Portuguese members, so it would be interesting to learn a little bit about Portugal.

    You can compare it very easily. Southern Europe (Portugal, Italy, Spain, France and Greece), are Christian majority and Northern Africa is Muslim majority. Where would you rather live?

    Our laws require us to pretend all religions are the same, no matter the evidence to the contrary.

    I do toy with the idea of asking prospective immigrants, regardless of religion:  do you believe homosexuals must be killed?  Imprisoned?  Do you believe apostates from your faith must be killed?

    On Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s podcast, a woman told the story of how her mother wanted her killed.  Her mother feared her daughter would eventually leave the faith, even though she had not yet done so.  And if she did, at least according to her mother’s brand of Islam, Allah would punish the entire family.

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali describes at great length in her book PREY, the behaviour of many  “rapefugees” as they are sometimes called. Some are Afghans. One of the beautiful quirks of Afghan culture is the sodomization of young boys. What we often forget is that what we had in Afghanistan, Iraq or any other land of ” the beautiful tradition of Islam” wasn’t an ideal situation but, as Kissinger put it, a “lesser evil”. “Our” allies were very often terrible people by western standards but they were better than the Taliban. “Better than the Taliban” is a very low bar for an immigration policy.

    Older men raping young boys was a common part of many culture for centuries if not millennia. Christianity helped and (I think) Buddhism helped make it unpopular across the world. Islam failed to improve upon this grim reality of human behavior. Christianity and Buddhism also have a long history of corruption and hypocrisy like all human institutions but in total, they seem to make populations a bit more noble than they were before.

    During his first stint as First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill was told by one his staff that he was impugning the traditions of the Royal Navy, to which Winston replied, “And what are they? They are rum, sodomy and the lash.”

    In his great book about Churchill quotations and misquotes, Churchill by Himself: The Definitive Collection of Quotations, Langworth says that Montague-Browne personally told him that he had asked Churchill about the quote.

    According to Montague-Browne, Churchill responded: “I never said it. I wish I had.”

    http://www.thisdayinquotes.com/2010/08/rum-sodomy-and-lash-winston-churchills.html

    The article goes on to suggest that the quote is a variant of an old phrase from the 1800s, “rum, bum, and bacca”.

    N.B.:  Neither version of the phrase implies rape, or the involvement of  young boys.

    Someone who knew Churchill personally rather than the reminiscences years later of people who knew him incidentally.

    Churchill thought it was funny, but I think was unlikely to have said it, knowing full well it was untrue:  the lash had been banned in the Royal Navy since 1881.* 

    It’s likelier that he would have used the old phrase, referring to tobacco instead of flogging.

    *Though just like boys in English public schools at the same time, boys in the Navy suffered corporal punishment well into the 20th century.

    Can you imagine how much more he would talk if he drank.

    The withdrawal syndrome is kicking in.

    Could you please ask Rob Long if he still wants to deport American non-vaccinated to be released by Afghanis?

    These conversations aren’t lectures. The guys are just talking so they exagerate for comic effect. I had my “Bret Weinstein” moment regarding the vaccines but I change my mind and got vaccinated. I’m tired of all this, I can’t stand public health officials and 2 bit experts, I want my life back. So I understand Pod, the bulk of hospitalizations and deaths are amongst the non vaccinated. This was one of the things Trump got right. Once upon a time it was the left that created all the BS regarding pharmaceuticals. I don’t understand the flip floping from so many conservatives. The vaccine program was a big achievement of the previous administration. Vaccines work and are safe. If someone refuses the vaccine, ok, personal choice and all that but they should be the ones to suffer restrictions not me or Pod.
