…In an interview with The Frame on Thursday, Mother! Director Darren Aronofsky responded to the movie’s highly unusual F-grade Cinemascore this way: “… You have other people who basically believe in the power of a iPhone that they can communicate to 35 million people in a blink of an eye, yet they don’t believe in science in other ways.”
He continued, “It has as many people believe in it as believe in gravity. And it scares me and it’s time to start screaming. So I wanted to howl. And this was my howl. And some people are not going to want to listen to it. That’s cool.”
Recall this is the movie where a god feeds Mother’s baby to a ravenous crowd, among other indignities.
It takes nothing to “believe” in the ability of a cell phone to send messages, since the evidence is immediate and overwhelming. But it’s a better than good bet that not one in 1,000 can describe the science behind this marvel. And there hasn’t been anybody ever but hippies hopping about on their knees in the old Transcendental Meditation movement that disbelieved in gravity. It’s even fewer people (maybe) who can tell you how gravity works.
It’s not science people therefore believe in, but scientism. Aronofsky would have people believe in the god of his creation, as he tried to do with Noah.
A paid FBI informant was the man behind a neo-Nazi march through the streets of Parramore that stirred up anxiety in Orlando’s black community and fears of racial unrest that triggered a major police mobilization.
This is old, from 2007, but the FBI’s false flag still fascinates. They wouldn’t do it again, would they?
Every patient visiting their family doctor or attending a hospital appointment in England will be asked to declare if they are gay, straight or bisexual under controversial new rules imposed by the NHS…
‘It isn’t relevant to ask an 87-year-old grandmother if she has ever had a relationship with another woman. She would find that incredibly insulting and storm out. It would ruin the consultation.’
The project is being launched — without full public consultation — after at least seven years’ lobbying by the LGBT Foundation.
Because there is nothing more important than knowing everybody’s sexual desires. They now define us. What stunted imaginations we moderns have.
Yenor is a mild-mannered, bald, bespectacled professor of political science at Boise State University…Yenor published a report in 2016 with the Heritage Foundation titled, Sex, Gender, and the Origins of the Culture War…That’s when the trouble began.
Leftist students took note of Yenor’s perspective. And they seethed…they complained, they demanded that the piece be taken down, and they insisted that Yenor had personally insulted them. All of this prompted the pusillanimous dean of the school, Corey Cook, to half-heartedly defend Yenor’s right to publish. But then Cook backtracked faster than Bobby Hull defending a breakaway…
…a knight arose to challenge Yenor’s nefarious, patriarchal dragon: Francisco Salinas, a man with the Orwellian title “Director of Student Diversity and Inclusion.”…he took up his fiery pen and wrote a post on the school’s website dramatically titled “Connecting The Dots.” Salinas explained that the Yenor controversy had preceded white supremacist rally and murder in Charlottesville, Virginia by a day. This was not, Salinas concluded, a coincidence. “Their proximity in my attention,” Salinas wrote, “is no accident.”…
[Salinas said,] “Not every person who agrees with Yenor’s piece is likely to become an espoused Neo-Nazi, but likely every Neo-Nazi would agree with the substance of Yenor’s piece…A flyer suddenly began appearing around campus, reading “YOU HAVE BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS SCOTT YENOR.” The faculty senate took up a measure that would initiate an investigation claiming that Yenor was guilty of some ethereal “misconduct.”
Cowardice and opportunism are the two characteristics of all these stories. That and the idiocy of filled-diapers who pass as students.
If you are in any large organization, in or out of government, and this nonsense happens to you, do not expect anybody in power to defend you. Saving their own skins, however temporarily, will be the best leaders will do. Even though Trump has shown that plain speaking and manly defense works.
After you are thrown under the bus by those who you thought were your friends, some evil opportunist like Salinas will arise to back the back the bus up and run you over again to ensure the kill.
