Obama: “We can’t just take comfort in being cynical. We all have a stake in government success, because the government is us, and we’re doing things right.”
Of course, this is consistent with Obama’s infamous “You didn’t build that” lecture.
Egypt is burning.
As of last Sunday approximately 90 women have been raped in Tahrir Square by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, and their opponents. Don’t look for good guys in this bottle of scorpions. Over fifty people have been murdered. Civil war is on the horizon.
Syria burns. Their civil war has been going on for almost three years. Over 100,000 people have been killed. Mass rape is used by both sides as a weapon of terror. Over a million Syrians have been forced from their homes.
But official Palestinian TV—funded by U.S. and European tax dollars—has but one burning issue: Jew-hatred.
A few days ago, when the mobs were gathering in Tahrir Square and the talking heads were all agog about another Arab Spring, I turned to Karen and said, “How long before these—ahem—freedom fighters, start raping women?”
Karen shrugged, rolled her eyes.
“How long before the Egyptians blame everything on the evil Jews?” I persisted.
Karen examined a split end.
A long time ago, in a universe far, far away, in a place called Hollywood, the engines of entertainment genius that were the movie studios, and the actors who were under contract to them, celebrated their love of America, and enthusiastically indulged in overt displays of patriotism.
L.B. Mayer (b. Lazar Meir) of MGM, a pioneer of the motion-picture industry, and the man who invented the star system, adopted July 4th as his birthday. Scores of Hollywood historians get all snarky about Mayer’s birthday, claiming that he conveniently changed his birthday in order to cash in on a public identification with America.
What these historians fail to recognize is that Mayer probably did not know the date of his birth.
The George Zimmerman trial is a TV ratings bonanza.
We are told that this is an important trial because…
Well, because the liberal ruling class and the race hustlers who work in concert to Balkanize this nation—race, gender, religion, whatever works—tell us that this is a narrative about race relations in America. George Zimmerman is being cast as a post-modern Bull Connor. Forget that Zimmerman is dark-skinned and Hispanic. Ignore the inconvenient fact that Zimmerman mentored young black kids. Forget that it’s Trayvon Martin who was the racist, referring to Zimmerman as a “creepy-ass cracker.”
Barack Hussein Obama most helpfully told America that Trayvon Martin could have been his son.
Translation: Trayvon Martin was black. Therefore, Obama (half black, raised by his white grandparents) identifies with him.
With all due respect to President Obama, this statement is fundamentally racist. It is an ideology that places skin color—not humanity, truth, or justice—as the center of a value system.
The Newsom-Christian story—an atrocity worthy of Nazis, or comparable to the cruel depredations of Japanese imperial troops—was ignored by the mainstream press. And the reason the liberal media deliberately buried this story is because the human monsters who committed this barbarous act were black, and the victims were white.
The professional race-baiters—Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Bobby Rush, Barack Obama, the entire lynch party at MSNBC—are still out there pushing their vile and false narrative.
Seraphic Secret published this story on April 3, 2012. And nothing has changed.
That’s what comes to mind when Seraphic Secret thinks of Paula Deen.
She cooks with lots and lots of butter. And, not surprisingly, her politically incorrect defiance of liberal health Nazis have made her brand wildly popular.
So: when we heard that Paula Deen was in hot water because of a single word—

1. Psycho, 1960
At first glance Psycho looks like a cheap exploitation film. Hitchcock shot it with a television crew, not his standard, and very costly, feature crew. He filmed in black and white, and the $800,000, budget was low even by the standards of 1960. The Bates Motel and gothic style mansion were built on the back lot at Universal.
Hitch had just finished the hugely entertaining and successful North by Northwest, a glittering, all-star production. Psycho, on the other hand, looks like a sleazy production with B-list actors. Even the ad campaign—“Do not give away the ending”—feels like something cooked up by William Castle or some other schlockmeister.
But of course, Psycho has become the essential Hitchcock movie. It’s the film whose impact has been felt in almost every subsequent mainstream Hollywood movie.
Seraphic Secret did not go to law school.
But since I make a living as a Hollywood screenwriter, I can claim to have a pretty good imagination.
So, here’s my take on the Supreme Court ruling striking down DOMA, thus making homosexual marriage the law of the land.
Barack Hussein Obama is set to deliver a, sigh, major speech (does this man ever deliver minor speeches?) about so-called climate change.
Whatever happened to Global Warming?
And gee, back in the ice age of 1977, Time published a cover story about global cooling and the impending, y’know, Ice Age.
Every American should support the right to bear arms.
It was free American blacks with guns—given to them by NRA Republicans—who were able to defend themselves against the Dixie Democrats and the KKK.
H/T Myrna & Joe Strapp
Today is our 36th wedding anniversary.
But as readers of Seraphic Secret know, I have been helplessly, hopelessly in love with Karen ever since the fourth grade, when I first saw her on the playground of our elementary school, Yeshiva of Flatbush.
Without Karen, I never would have accomplished very much in life. It was her faith in my ambition, my talent and tenacity, that gave me the strength to become a successful Hollywood screenwriter-producer. And of course, it has always been Karen’s common sense that has turned me from an irresponsible young dreamer into a man who is willing to shoulder even the heaviest of burdens.
Yesterday, we took a walk together. At one point, I turned and glanced at Karen’s lovely profile. Time seemed to turn liquid as present and past merged. For one hallucinatory instant, I saw Karen as the ravishing, nine year-old, onyx-eyed beauty who captured my vulnerable heart.
I said to myself: “Karen loves me. Karen married me. We have built a wonderful life together. My world is complete.”
Here’s an excerpt from my eBook, How I Married Karen.
Seraphic Secret is no longer shocked by anything that crawls from the slime of the Obama White House.
What is shocking is that the American people tolerate Obama’s radical agenda—Cloward-Piven strategy mixed with Alinsky tactics—that is trampling on our rights, making a mockery of the Constitution, and turning America into a European style welfare state where the citizens are liberated from, y’know, liberty.
Barack Hussein Obama spent over 20 years as a faithful member of a Jew-hating, anti-American church. Jeremiah Wright, the frothing race hustler who led this church, was Obama’s spiritual mentor. Wright performed the Obama wedding, and christened the Obama children. It was in the living room of American terrorists (and trust fund babies) Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dorn that Obama kicked off his bottom-feeding political career. And at each step in his rise to power, Barack Hussein Obama has pandered to Islamists, like the outspoken Jew-hater Khaled Rashidi.
Thus, it’s only logical to discover that Obama’s IRS, has been giving preferential treatment to CAIR, a front for the Muslim Brotherhood, while at the same time turning pro-Israel groups over to an IRS anti-terrorism unit.
Keep in mind that this Jew-hating sermon was delivered at the same, ahem, “university” where Barack Hussein Obama delivered his 2009 speech to the Muslim world.
The Nazis tried to keep their genocide of the Jewish people a secret because they believed the world was “too civilized” to accept the Final Solution. Modern Muslims are not constrained by such illusions. They know, and they wallow in the essential barbarism of their world—and large segments of Europe—where Jew-hatred is as natural and as necessary as oxygen. The Islamic world is proud of their bigotry, and they tell us, in no uncertain terms, that Jew-hatred, and the eventual genocide of the Jewish people, is a guiding foundational principle of Islam.
Liberals—slaves to self-righteous fantasies—will lecture us about all the good and moderate Muslims who do not accept such genocidal racism. To which Seraphic Secret replies: These Muslims are as irrelevant as were the “good Germans” to the Holocaust.
Hollywood is the greatest propaganda machine the world has ever known.
Audiences used to sit in a velvety dark theater, drinking in the silver images projected on the screen. Actors were larger than life, and the manner in which they were styled — wardrobe, makeup, and hair — influenced mass audiences the world over.
In the roaring 20s, women broke free of corsets and countless layers of petticoats to dance the Charleston and experience a new social freedom. The long, corkscrew tresses made popular by Mary Pickford and Lillian Gish were ritually chopped off and replaced by the bob, a hairstyle that was easy to manage and projected a sleek, Deco image.
Take a look at a few of the many bob styles popular in the Flapper Age. I think you’ll agree that most of them are timeless and appealing.
The Wall Street Journal reports on a Jew-hating miniseries to be aired during Ramadan on Egyptian TV. Hundreds of millions of Muslims will view this openly anti-Semitic propaganda.
In March, on his first visit to the Jewish state as president, Barack Obama exhorted Israelis to reach out to their Arab neighbors and see that “sometimes the greatest miracle is recognizing that the world can change.”
But consider Egypt, where in 2011 a popular revolt swept away Hosni Mubarak’s pharaonic dictatorship only to replace it with a Muslim Brotherhood-led theocracy. Through it all, one element of Egyptian culture has remained constant: its virulent anti-Semitism.
“Khaybar,” a serial drama set to air during the holy month of Ramadan (starting on July 8), is Egyptian TV’s latest piece of hate-melodrama. It depicts the Prophet Muhammad’s conquest, in A.D. 629, of a Jewish community on the Arabian Peninsula.
June 19, 2013 will mark our 36th wedding anniversary.
Yesterday, at the Tenth Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture, David Horowitz outlined the war on Judiasm on today’s American campuses.
Anti-Zionism is the new Jew-hatred.
On campuses all across America, the Muslim Brotherhood have set up student front groups to push their genocidal agenda under the guise of multiculturalism, and, er, tolerance.
Perhaps most disturbing is the role of the campus (allegedly Jewish) Hillel organizations.
Instead of confronting and fighting the IslamoNazis who are colonizing American campuses, too many Hillel groups have been taken over by leftists who enthusiastically appease, if not enable, the Jew-hating Islamists.
