The Redefinition of Marriage is Not About Marriage

City-of-Houston-free-speech-enforcement

As the move to redefine marriage in the United States gains steam through the agency of unelected activist courts, it should be clear that the true intent of this radical movement is to wage war against religion and, of course, against the First Amendment.

It is vital to remember that the Left uses stealth and lies to achieve its ends.

Those who advocate the murder of infants in the womb camouflage their support of industrial-scale murder with the label “women’s health.” But since half the infants aborted are female, the very notion of terminating pregnancies for the sake of women’s health becomes a study in Orwellian language and logic.

The same goes for the redefinition of marriage.

Obama’s Treachery and the Jewish State

Obama and Sullivan F the Jews

Obamaism is a multifaceted attack on traditional Americanism.

Obamaism springs from Marxist-Lenninism, but is softened, for messaging purposes, by the utopian, feel-good language of social justice.

It is no accident that Obama was a deeply devoted follower of Jeremiah Wright, whose theology is a radical leftist’s wet dream of what religion should be. Naturally, Wright is a foaming at the mouth Jew and America hater.

Thus, it was entirely predictable that Obama would emerge as profoundly anti-Israeli, treating the Jewish state as a colonial Western outpost, and as the central problem in the Middle East, a toxic region made so by decades of tyranny, kleptocracy, socialism, Islamism, and the bloody forever-war between Shia and Sunni.

We now know that Obama withheld crucial military supplies Israel requested during Operation Protective Edge.

The Israel Apartheid Blood Libel

Is Israel an apartheid state, as its enemies claim? Who better to answer that charge than a Black South African who lived through apartheid? Kenneth Meshoe, a member of the South African parliament, fits that bill. He examines the evidence against Israel and draws a compelling conclusion.

Take #3: The Meaning of Leaning in Hollywood

Jean Harlow propped up on a leaning board between scenes for “Dinner at Eight” (’33). The form fitting silk gown designed by Adrian was so tight that Harlow could not sit. In fact, Harlow was sewn into the gown — sans underwear.

Jean Harlow propped up on a leaning board between scenes for “Dinner at Eight” (’33). The form fitting silk gown designed by Adrian was so tight that Harlow could not sit. In fact, Harlow was sewn into the gown — sans underwear.

Leaning boards ( also called Slant boards) were invented for Hollywood players to relax between takes. Hollywood costumes were frequently cut on-the-bias, and tailored so snugly that the actor could not sit without bursting a ladder of seams. In fact, most of the time, there were no zippers or buttons on the costumes. Actors were stitched into their garments.

When you see Jean Harlow in Dinner at Eight, and marvel at the impeccable fit of the famous white silk gown, be aware that Harlow’s mobility was severely limited. In fact, just breathing was something of a chore.

Remember, classic Hollywood movies were designed to project images of glamour. For the screen, costumes had to be photogenic. Comfort and practicality were of little concern.

These days, leaning boards are still in use, but they are the exception rather than the rule, for a variety of reasons. Modern fabrics are more forgiving. It is also quite rare for a costume to be designed, cut and sewn, for one actress. Most costumes are off the rack, and modified. Besides, in today’s Hollywood, stars who receive multiple millions for one film are loathe to suffer the indignities of such a tight fit.

Obama’s Community Theater

State Dept. propagandist Jen Psaki.

State Dept. propagandist Jen Psaki. The hashtag reassures the world that the United States is chock full of empathy. At the same time, the smile, necklace, and the thumbs up, signal that Obama’s America is totally chill.

From the very beginning of Seraphic Secret’s work in the blogosphere, we have maintained that Hollywood movies are the most powerful weapon of propaganda the world has ever known.

America wins wars that Hollywood supports.

And of course, America loses wars that Hollywood opposes.

Netanyahu Calls Obama’s View of Jerusalem ‘Un-american’

YouTube Preview Image

 

Seraphic Secret would like to remind the 74% of American Jews who voted for Obama that he spent over 20 years as a faithful member of Jeremiah Wright’s openly Jew-hating, America-bashing (so-called) church.

Thus, Obama’s hostility and racism towards the Jewish state was nothing if not predictable.

Hamas: Ruling West Bank Could Destroy Israel “…with a speed that no one can imagine.”

Screen-Shot-2014-06-18-at-3.05.31-PM

Obama has (sorta) declared war against Islamic State.

But the IslamoNazis of Hamas, according to the State Department, are partners for peace.

In short, the IslamoNazis who work to liquidate the State of Israel and every Jew on the face of the earth are good IslamoNazis. But the IslamoNazis who threaten Western interests are the bad guys.

The Hamas covenant of 1988 declares that genocide of the Jewish people in the name of Islam is their stated goal. But apparently no one in the White House has bothered to read this ghastly document. Or if they have, they do no take it seriously.

And now Hamas has, once again, stated in the boldest terms that they seek to replace the Jewish state with a Caliphate ruled by sharia.

Will the chattering classes now tell us that Hamas is unIslamic?

Obama and the Rise of the Islamic Reich

Jayvee-beheading

Barack Obama was handed a soft ball “60 Minutes” segment by Praetorian journalist Steve Kroft. In this, ahem, interview, Obama blamed the CIA for failing to note the rise of the IslamoNazi State in large swaths of lands formerly known as Iraq and Syria.

Of course, Obama was lying.

The rise of the Islamic Reich has been foretold in the daily security briefings for over a year. But Obama does not review these all important briefings with members of the national security team — as have all past Presidents.

Rosh Hashanah — 2014

YouTube Preview Image

 

As America and the token (militarily useless) Arab allies go to war against the Islamic State, it is no small irony that America’s most faithful and reliable ally in the Middle East, Israel, has once again been sidelined. The reasons for this political snub are simple. The racist, Jew-haters of the, ahem, moderate Arab states, cannot tolerate fighting alongside the Jews.

The barbaric tribalism and inbred Jew-hatred that characterizes the Muslim world has doomed these lands to endless cycles of sectarian slaughter and economic ruin. And because the West enables this ghastly primitivism—a paternal racism—the Arab Muslim world will continue its backward spiral into cultural irrelevance.

Israel is the canary in the coal mine for Western civilization. America may not be ready to admit it, but the battle against the sadists of the Islamic State is the same battle Israel is waging against the IslamoNazis of Gaza, Iran, PA, Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic Jihad, etc.

Until that simple truth is recognized and publicly acknowledged the West will continue to lose ground to the IslamoNazis.

The IDFs Greatest Hits — Justice For Our Boys

Murdered (L to R): Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Sha’ar, Naftali Frenkel.
Courtesy of the families.

When three Jewish teenagers were kidnapped by IslamoNazis, Seraphic Secret along with thousands of other good people proclaimed #BringBackOurBoys.

This was not the empty, narcissistic theater of Michelle Obama’s #BringBackOurGirls, played for public consumption and then promptly forgotten.

Our anguish was real. And Jewish memory is eternal.

When we learned that Eyal Yifrah, Gilad Sha’ar and Naftali Frankel had been murdered by the IslamoNazis of Hamas, we mourned.

And we thirsted for vengeance against the IslamoNazis who cruelly and with premeditation murdered three Jewish boys because they were Jewish.

The good news is this: There will be no lengthy trial or prisoner exchange for the Islamist Jew-haters who slaughtered our boys. The IDF has exacted the ultimate justice.

Obama: A Professional Diagnosis

narcissistobamaframed

Ever since Barack Hussein Obama burst onto the national scene, Seraphic Secret has maintained that this ideologically rigid leftist is riddled with personal pathologies that, given the opportunity to metastize, will spell a decline of Americanism at home and abroad. And when American power and influence wane, the vacuum is rapidly colonized by the wicked forces of repression and genocide.

Now, after six years of Obama, the American economy is moribund, ObamaCare is unraveling the world’s greatest health care system, the Russians and the Chinese are on the march, and the Middle East—except for tiny democratic Israel—is in flames. IslamoNazis are seizing ground in Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen.

Keep in mind that Obama’s first foreign policy initiative was to repair relations with the Muslim world.

John Wayne Casts a Giant Shadow

John Wayne and Kirk Douglas in “Cast a Giant Shadow”

John Wayne’s commitment to Conservative values cemented his support of Israel.

Indeed, there was a time when even Hollywood liberals supported Israel publicly, and through generous charitable contributions.  Tragically, classic liberalism is dead, replaced by a postmodern Democrat party—progressivism—that is radically left and infused with the classic Jew-hatred of Marxist-Lenninism.

In Scott Eyman’s compulsively readable biography of John Wayne, we glimpse Wayne’s activism on behalf of the Jewish state.

The Media’s War Against the Jewish State

MSM-Gaza

This hugely important article, written by former AP journalist Matti Friedman, is a must-read.

It was published in Tablet on August 26, 2014.

It is a long, riveting piece, filled with details of journalistic bias against Israel — a ghastly testament of classic Jew-hatred going mainstream under the guise of anti-Zionism.

Ebola: Virus of Peace

Little girls kidnapped by one group of IslamoNazis are chained by female IslamoNazis and sold into sexual slavery to another group of IslamoNazis. But of course, this has nothing to do with Islam. It just, y'know, happened.

Little girls kidnapped by one group of IslamoNazis are chained by female IslamoNazis and sold into sexual slavery to another group of IslamoNazis. But of course, this has nothing to do with Islam. It’s really the Republican war on women that we have to worry about.

Barack Obama went to great lengths to reassure  the American people that the IslamoNazis of ISIS do not represent Islam. He also assured us that they are not a state.

But the IslamoNazis who chant Allahu Akbar, and display Korans as they behead, enslave, rape, loot, and commit mass murder, beg to disagree about their Islamic faith. And they do control territory as large as the state of Indiana.

So let’s be honest, they are Muslims who control an Islamic state.
