My previous existence as a Knight has enabled me to see a Knight far off even in the dark. I recognise Orcs too, and we have had a few of those around here this past week or four, baying and snarling. Dom and Ben, the flower pot men, and assorted anonymous shadow people pissing on the welcome mat outside.
But this week we see a chap and yet another woman challenging un-lady-like behaviour from farm-yard wenches and their lack-lustre manginas. And this is no practice joust.
Senator Cory Bernadi has earned his spurs and carries a lance well. This week he walked his horse infront of The Monstrous Regiment so they could all get a good look at a warrior, and he they. And he was joined, with just the Pacific Ocean between, facing the Orcish horde, by Suzanne Venker who was there beside Camille Paglia. An Oz-US alliance.
You will recall Camille in the bar back in December.
They were there to take arms against the destructive forces of Feminism. It has to be done by both men and women of courage and Principle.
It was therefore only a slight disappointment to see Cory avoid the 'F' word. But that did not stop the ladies in metal shouting it loud and clear.
You can decide for yourselves which of the three did the most to raise and defend the Banners of Truth.
I stood by with my apron at the ready and a jug of fine Ale.
Cory spurred his mount to the canter. Not that the gathered reporters were wholly convinced of course.
Cory Bernardi accuses some women using abortion as form of birth controlCringe at the Editorial Blue Pencil. Only some lefty jerk could have qualified that in such a weasely way.
CONTROVERSIAL Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi has labelled pro-choice advocates "pro-death" and accused some women of using abortion as "an abhorrent form of birth control".By the Lord Harry, that is throwing down a challenge.
But why call him 'controversial'? That is a lefty term for speaking the truth, of course.
By their fruits, ye shall know them. But read on.
|Cory mounts his steed.|
In his new book The Conservative Revolution, Bernardi said it was "horrendous and unacceptable" that the abortion "death industry despatches 80,000 to 100,000 unborn children [in Australia] every year".Indeed it is. Horrendous. But seemingly quite acceptable in our modern, caring, sharing Menda City.
The Abbott Government backbencher also denounces non-traditional families, surrogacy and euthanasia, laying out five pillars for a "conservative revolution" in which he calls for the restoration of the traditional family model over all others, the ABC reports.
"Given the increasing number of 'non-traditional' families, there is a temptation to equate all family structures as being equal or relative," he writes.
"Why then the levels of criminality among boys and promiscuity among girls who are brought up in single-parent families, more often than not headed by a single mother?
"What is missing in the push for human cloning, in vitro fertilisation and surrogacy, for example, is the understanding that children come into families as gifts, not commodities."This of course brought a howling from the FeminOrc ranks and much shaking of spears. How dare he call a child a gift when everyone knows it is a burden and a fiend from the fetid Patriarchy, imposed on a mother to keep her oppressed.
In a call to arms to fellow conservatives, Bernardi writes that Australia has lost its direction in part due to the absence of religion in politics and says the greatest threats to Christianity are the "green agenda" and Islam, which he believes to be incompatible with Western beliefs.At this point he should of course have been pointing his lance directly at the leading FeminOrcs rather than at the grass and the rather fecund Islamist sitting in the sidelines. Fine, courageous Knight he is but he does need a warm-up joust or two to get him pointing the right weapon in the right direction.
"I believe that by stripping God and religious principles from our culture (and our politics) we have become a nation which does not know which port it is sailing to," he writes.
|His wife keeps him alert to The Woman, with a Political finger at his ear.|
Senator Bernardi, a key member of the Liberal party's right wing also advocates a return to individual workplace agreements despite Prime Minister Tony Abbott acknowledging that the former Howard government's WorkChoices policy was "dead, buried and cremated".It is always difficult to control your horse with so much shouting going on, but his bolted back to the tent at that point.
Follow the link above and this one for more 'discussion' including some Orcish jeering and cant from his interviewers. They both have videos to see.
Of course, back in his tent he will face far worse criticism than I make. My small comments will barely get a look in, as I generally support all he is saying. But others will be far more scathing. As pointed out....
South Australian Senator Cory Bernardi is a conservative who is not afraid to share his convictions in the public arena. For daring to do so, he of course becomes the object of huge doses of hate, derision and intolerance – mainly by those who shout ‘tolerance’ the loudest of course.
He has just released a new book and predictably all hell is breaking loose. In the book The Conservative Revolution he courageously seeks to speak the truth. For example, he dares to speak against the slaughter of the unborn. He dares to be concerned about creeping sharia. He dares to want to see children protected by living with their own mother and father.
Every lefty secularist in the country by now has already called for his head on a platter. If crucifixion were still in, they would be calling for that as well.
And as usual, some spineless wonders in his own party have been distancing themselves from him. But we expect all that.
Then we were fortunate to see a Knightly Woman armoured with 'Communications Skills' wielding a few well sharpened words. Suzanne Venker has her own armoury of course, and a fine stock she has too, but came to the field with some choice weapons from Camille's tent.
She spoke directly at the facing ranks, awakening whatever semblance of humanity there might have been there.
Women, wake up,
Men have made your Life Better,
There’s a reason the text version of Camille Paglia’s opening statement at the Munk Debate, “Resolved: Men Are Obsolete” garnered 10,000 likes on Facebook and received more than one thousand comments at Time.com : it hit a nerve.
It was a nerve that needed to be hit, and Paglia did it beautifully.
Not only was her choice of words fitting, she delivered them with the perfect amount of exasperation.
America must revisit its distorted view of gender equality, implored Paglia, and start being fair to the other half of the human race.
Men’s success in fields such as medicine, engineering and technology have done more to liberate women from the constraints of their former lives than a busload of feminists could ever hope to do.
It’s time to stop pretending men are oppressors and to start recognizing the extraordinary contributions men have made to society
|Just to be clear, Camille is a Lesbian Feminist.|
BUT she fights on the side of Men and a certain Truth-Approximating perspective.
Paglia says, “History must be seen clearly and fairly: obstructive traditions arose not from men’s hatred or enslavement of women but from the natural division of labor that had developed over thousands of years during the agrarian period and that once immensely benefited and protected women, permitting them to remain at the hearth to care for helpless infants and children. Over the past century, it was laborsaving appliances, invented by men and spread by capitalism, that liberated women from daily drudgery.”
It is a truth rarely acknowledged: Men’s success in fields such as medicine, engineering and technology have done more to liberate women from the constraints of their former lives than a busload of feminists could ever hope to do.
In almost every era, it was a male invention that provided women with the means to an easier life.
In the past, just getting through the day was a full-time job. Those days are now gone -- because of men.
It is their ingenuity and hard work that provided women, mothers in particular, with what they’ve always craved: time. It gave them the kind of cushy lives our grandmothers could only dream about.
If men are born Neanderthals, as the culture suggests, why would they create products that ease women’s burden?
Only those who carry a grudge as a result of personal biases would ignore this fact and instead blame society for their woes.
This group needs something to do with their “putative leftism,” or “implicit privileging of bourgeois values and culture,” notes Paglia.
The irony is that it’s because of the sweet life men created that these women even have time to ruminate over their place in the world -- and demonize the very group to whom they should be indebted.
“A peevish, grudging rancor against men has been one of the most unpalatable and unjust features of second- and third-wave feminism.
Men’s faults, failings and foibles have been seized on and magnified into gruesome bills of indictment. Ideologue professors at our leading universities indoctrinate impressionable undergraduates with carelessly fact-free theories alleging that gender is an arbitrary, oppressive fiction with no basis in biology.”
It is precisely this propaganda -- the idea that biology isn’t real, and that men are prone to oppress women -- that’s caused women so much anguish.
“Is it any wonder,” asks Paglia, “that so many high-achieving young women find themselves in the early stages of their careers in chronic uncertainty or anxiety about their prospects for an emotionally fulfilled private life?”
It is no wonder at all. Women must accept that what they’ve been taught by the culture just isn’t true. They will never be content until they do.
Suzanne Venker has written extensively about marriage and the family and its intersection with the culture. She is also the founder of Women for Men (WFM) , a news and opinion website committed to improving gender relations and to providing much-needed support for the American male.

When asked, "What kind of “damage” has feminism done?" by someone at the bar afterwards, Suzanne made the succinct point.
The idea that equality means sameness. Women and men had specific roles, and there were reasons they were locked into those roles. The changes that have occurred since then have allowed or forced people out of those gender roles, mostly because of birth control.
But the purpose of feminism is to yank the feminine out of the woman,
to give you this faux sense of equality. Just because men and women are equal in worth or value doesn’t mean they’re interchangeable or the same. Feminism taught women to reject marriage and motherhood, go out into the workforce, and compete with men.
That has been extremely destructive.
I am pretty sure that the manginas are frothing at the mouth, and perhaps even other orifices. I shall have some clean waters to throw over them as they depart.
