Marginalizing Syrian Gassing Skeptics

"Kerry is essentially trying to put Assad's culpability for the gassing in the category of those assertions the truth of which one is not allowed to question and that to do so would constitute "hate" (in this case, alleged support for all Assad's brutal actions), thus barring one from mainstream venues." 

~Dr. Stephen J. Sniegoski

A rather pregnant passage, don't you think? "Gassing," "not allowed to question," "hate," and "barring one from mainstream venues"? All in connection with whether skeptics ought "to give any credence to the Israeli information"? That complex of themes surrounds more than Israeli assertions of truth regarding the Syrian President’s alleged (dare I use the modifier?) use of chemical weapons.

Think of the impetus for Israel’s very founding. The Six Million dying in a systematic extermination, primarily via homicidal gas chambers. Polite opinion not allowing any to question any aspect of the account. Those who do barring themselves from mainstream venues. (That is, when they’re not getting themselves tossed in prison.)

Yes, "Hitler, too, wanted to disarm his enemies." He did it literally. Israel does it literally and figuratively.

Every people has a story. The wonder is that so many Westerners embrace a story that puts theirs in such an unfavorable light. Even (especially?) in this post-Christian chapter of our civilization, you think Israeli Information denial might be reckoned no worse a crime than Resurrection denial.

Bottoms are Tops!

Interesting article you put together on the derriere! I’ve long deemed that part of a woman’s anatomy the most alluring of her charms. Loving hindsight is best!

You’re right. The caboose seems to have taken front (!) and center in a culture more traditionally geared to boobs and legs. What this newfound obsession says about the contemporary American socio-economic scene, I don’t know. Somehow I think growing awareness of the Federal Reserve Bank’s currency debasements and our Supervisors’ homicidal humanitarianism has something to do with it. But I’m probably grasping at straws.

The callipygian ideal has certainly changed over the years. In the trade-off between rondure and compactness, the latter once held serve. A cheerleader’s bubble butt was de rigueur in the 1970s and 1980s. Nobody liked a big ass.

Now it seems the leading specimens of dorsal delectability (e.g., Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez) have lots junk in the trunk. Rondure reigns supreme.

Certified Victimizer

Cite a handful of crimes. Take them out of context. Overstate and embellish. Voila! You've created your black legend.

Propagate your black legend as historical truth. Certify your victimizers.

No certified victimizer can ever be a victim. This is by definition. Everybody else is the victimizer's victim. Soon enough, the defamation directed at the victimizer takes the form of persecution. Call it evening the score. Better yet: self-defense! 
Yes, the gulags are still a long way off. Don't let that lull you into a false sense of security. When civilizations fall, they fall fast and hard.
