Homo Fascism and the Mozilla Moment


A few weeks ago, Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson was mugged by Homo Fascists and their media lapdogs for stating what has been a truth for every civilization since the beginning of time.

Last week, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned under pressure, also for supporting traditional marriage.

Eich, a Silicon Valley techie, invented JavaScript, and helped start Mozilla which makes the Firefox Web browser.

Eich donated $1,000 to support Prop 8, the 2008 ballot initiative that defined marriage as between a man and a woman. At no point in Eich’s career has he been accused of bias against homosexuals. In addition he stated that he would not change Mozilla’s policy of of providing the same health benefits to homosexual couples as to heterosexual couples.

Thus, Eich was purged by the fascist left for thought crimes.

Remembering Legendary Costume Designer Helen Rose

Costume designer Helen Rose.

Costume designer Helen Rose.

Helen Rose was one of Hollywood’s most important costume designers.

Seraphic Secret has authored several posts about Rose.  In June 2010, we wrote about Rose’s not-so-nice Jewish boyfriend. If you have not read this post, you should. The identity reveal at the end will take your breath away.

In another post, with the help of genealogist Kathy Soto, we unravel Rose’s Jewish roots. We also chronicle an episode of costume craziness between Rose and Jane Fonda.

In April 2011, we wrote about the stunning wedding gown Helen Rose designed for Grace Kelly.

Mother Of Five: ObamaCare Jeopardizing My Family’s Financial Future

Poster for a 1925 film with a title that, tragically, resonates.

Poster for a 1925 film with a title that, tragically, resonates.


Barack Obama and the Democrat party authored ObamaCare and rammed it down America’s throat by means devious and immoral. This byzantine legislation was made into law because, according to the Democrats, there were 40 million uninsured Americans.

In truth, the number of uninsured Americans was, um, flexible. Sometimes it was 30 million, at other times it was 50 million. Obama and his Praetorian Guard media just threw out whatever number was convenient at the moment.

Ignored is the fact that millions of Americans choose to be uninsured for a variety of reasons. Some are young, and it does not pay to purchase insurance. Some live off the grid, utterly self-reliant. And of course, there are the stupid, the mentally ill, the alcoholics and drug addicts, and the chronically clueless. Tragic creatures who cannot navigate life’s countless complexities. But the point of the floating number was always to give the impression that heartless insurance companies play a Hobbesian game in pursuit of evil profit.

Obama Says ObamaCare is a Raging Success, So It Must Be True… Or Something


America has a problem.

The problem is that the President of the United States is a pathological liar who presides over a gangster government.

His “mission accomplished” speech yesterday left yours truly, speechless.

Seraphic Secret’s close friend, Kishke, left this comment on yesterday’s post:

Covered California Sends Deaf Callers to Sex Hotline

Any excuse to post a photo of BB.

Any excuse to post a photo of BB.

This is the perfect ObamaCare story, a metaphor for the fetish Democrats have made of government and the bureaucratic state.

No doubt the hot line offers better value for your money than ObamaCare.

C’mon people, we desperately need some levity.

On the deadline to sign up for health coverage through Covered California, some hearing-impaired residents were sent to a chat line offering ‘hot ladies’ instead of an insurance navigator.

With the deadline looming, an Auburn man scrambled to sign up for Covered California.

A page on the site where users can calculate the cost of coverage lists an incorrect phone number as 1-888-899-4500. The number, which was correct on the Contact Us page, is similar, but just one digit off: 1-888-889-4500.

So what does the incorrect number go to? This is what greets callers instead of health insurance advice:

“Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Ladies, to talk to interesting and exciting guys free, press one now. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press two to connect free now,” the recording says.

Obama Commends Abbas For, Get This, ‘Consistently Renouncing Violence’

Barack Obama with his new BFF, Holocaust Denier Mahmoud Abbas.

Barack Obama with his new BFF, Holocaust Denier Mahmoud Abbas.

Last week, before meeting with Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas, President Obama made this statement:

“I have to commend President Abbas,” Obama said alongside the Palestinian leader. “He has been somebody who has consistently renounced violence, has consistently sought a diplomatic and peaceful solution that allows for two states, side by side, in peace and security; a state that allows for the dignity and sovereignty of the Palestinian people and a state that allows for Israelis to feel secure and at peace with their neighbors.”

To make such a statement, Obama must be either ignorant, delusional, or a liar.

Just as Putin is taking Obama to the woodshed, Abbas is outflanking Obama at every point. Not surprising when you consider that both Putin and Abbas are Hobbesian bully boys, whereas Obama is, well, a community agitator.

My friend Rob Miller, over at Joshua Pundit, examines Obama’s jaw-dropping statement, and in the process exposes the bloodlust and Jew-hatred that animates not just Abbas, but the entire Palestinian culture, a murderous and barbaric cult.

6. The Birds, 1963

It is a shame, but the behind-the scenes drama of the making of The Birds, specifically Hitchcock’s unforgivable abuse of Tippi Hedrin, has, in some circles, become the dominant narrative of this spellbinding, if often mysterious movie.

California Democrat And Anti-Gun Fanatic Charged With, Um, Gun Running

State Senator Leland Yee (D-CA), an anti-gun anti-violent video game legislator was arrested on charges he trafficked in firearms and violated corruption laws.

State Senator Leland Yee (D-CA), an anti-gun anti-violent video game legislator was arrested on charges he trafficked in firearms and violated corruption laws.

Seraphic Secret is shocked, just shocked, that a prominent anti-gun Democrat has been indicted for running guns to gangsters and Islamic terrorists.

Actually, we’re not shocked at all.

The Democrats are cynical opportunists. They believe they are so righteous, so morally elevated, that anything done for their radical agenda is justified.

To normal and decent people, Yee is a liar, a criminal, and a hypocrite.

But to liberals, Yee is doing what has to be done — in the name of the politically correct ideology.

Think of it like this: Bill Clinton was and remains a popular figure to liberal (so-called) feminists in spite of the fact that he is a sexual predator who, as POTUS, lied under oath.

Jew-Hatred For Evangelicals


Time and again, Seraphic Secret has noted that Christianity in America is uniquely free of the eliminationist Jew-hatred that animates Christianity in Europe.

But now, classical Jew-hatred is beginning to appear on the fringes of some Christian communities here in America. Naturally, these Jew-haters claim to be merely anti-Zionist. We’ve heard that lie before. It’s the public narrative used by the Arab Muslim world to camouflage their genocidal intentions.

Evangelical Jew-hatred, no matter how marginal at the moment, represents an existential danger to Jews and to decent and faithful Christians everywhere. Because if these creatures can demonize and persecute Jews in America, then there is no safe harbor in the Western world.

“For any self-respecting person, the endorsement of terror… at a Christian conference is obscene.” — Kay Wilson, tour guide attacked by Palestinian terrorists.

Islam’s Bloody Mission


Islam’s mission, past and present, is to persecute, plunder, rape, enslave, and murder non-Muslims.

We hear lots of talk about moderate Muslims and how they deplore the blood lust of their radical brothers.

Unfortunately, the evidence for millions of kumbaya Muslims is slim. Common sense tells us that an army of moderate Muslims would turn against their violent coreligionists, damn them to hell, and take to the streets in processions of peace and decency.

This is a liberal delusion.

After Shiva

Rabbi Abraham Avrech, z'l.

Rabbi Abraham Avrech, z’l.

Shiva is complete. I am now in a period called shloshim.

Emerging from shiva is something of a shock. For the seven days of mourning I neither watched TV news nor read newspapers. My daily TCM fix was terminated. And politics was a blessedly distant shore. Not talking about things Obama is a huge relief.

My time on the computer was limited to e-mail. Instead, I was surrounded by friends and relatives. I talked about my father’s full and varied life, and his remarkable accomplishments.

A Duck Dynasty Purim!

The 2014 Purim celebration begins on Saturday night March 15 and continues through the 16th.

On the holiday of Purim, Jews listen to a reading of Megillat Esther, send gifts of food to friends and neighbors, donate to the poor, attend a festive meal where we make a l’chaim—“Genocide averted, let’s eat!”—and frequently wear witty costumes.

Those good men of Ducky Dynasty have joined Seraphic Secret in this year’s Purim celebration.

Purim: The Non-Progressive Jewish Holiday

“The Banquet of Esther and Ahasuerus” by Jan Victors, 1640s.

“The Banquet of Esther and Ahasuerus” by Jan Victors, 1640s.

Today is the Fast of Purim which commemorates Esther’s three days of fasting in preparation for her meeting with King Ahasuerus.

It’s an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but agnonizingly familiar story: An intolerant Jew-hater named Haman hatches a plan to annihilate the Jewish people in the ancient kingdom of Persia.

Gangster Government: Convicted Al Qaeda Spy Weiss Rasool Works for IRS


This is perfect.

A convicted IslamoNazi is working for the IRS.

At first, Seraphic Secret was surprised, even baffled, at this startling news. But then we got over our naiveté. After all, Obama & Co. actively support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. They forget, or perhaps do not wish to recall, that the MB is the same group of genocide-yearning IslamoNazis who assassinated Anwar Sadat and have vowed to do the same to any Arab Muslim who tries to make peace with Israel.

But They’re Only Cartoons — IslamoNazi Jew-Hatred


In the Arab Muslim world, the evil Jew/Zionist is the scapegoat upon which all the ills of society are heaped.

Arab Muslim propagandists claim that they don’t hate Jews; they are just criticizing Zionism. But of course, this is a lie designed to deflect attention from the Jew-hatred that is their mother’s milk.

And of course, Obama & Co are enabling this Jew-hatred.

Hollywood: I Drive Therefore I am Free

Shirley Temple with Baby LeRoy cruising in a Fire Chief car, early 1930s.

Shirley Temple with Baby LeRoy cruising in a Fire Chief car, early 1930s.

The automobile represents freedom.

You climb into a car and go, go, go, whenever and wherever you want. The car is modern man’s path to liberty.

Contrast cars with trains.

Railroads are an expression of the collective. Individual identity is erased. You are at the mercy of a government-controlled system that turns  citizens into passive cogs, at the mercy of by-the-book bureaucrats.

That’s why democrats/progressives/liberals/ (what are they calling themselves this week?) are obsessed with high-speed rail. The freedom of the road is repellent to big government fanatics. The ruling elite seek to regulate and control tobacco, food, calories, soda, education, light bulbs, toilets, health care, reproduction, cow flatulence, oxygen — every cell of your body.

In short: liberty is constricted by any and all means.

And all in the name of an amorphous, pre-adolescent concept: Fairness.

And you better believe that the chattering elite are the ones who get to define what’s fair and what’s unfair. Funny how that always works out in their favor.

Nazis just adored trains. And hey, the Italian fascists boasted that Mussolini made the trains run on time. Though Italian trains were about as effective and efficient as the Italian army. Which is to say: Not.

At a certain point, one must acknowledge the convergent philosophies of post-modern liberals and iron-fist fascists. Both ideologies assert the power of the state as the final arbiter of human affairs. Hence, the government replaces G-d and family as the center of man’s universe. It’s no surprise that the formal title of the Nazi party was “The National Socialist German Workers’ Party.”


Today, Hollywood celebrities make sure to be seen driving a Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, or any of the dopey but politically correct green cars. It is something of an open secret here among my Hollywood colleagues that the garage is fully stocked with BMW, Mercedes, Bentley, and for sure, a few Jags—for real driving.

But once upon a time Hollywood produced great stars who proudly posed with their autos, symbols of glamor, affluence, and freedom.

Memo to President Obama: Ten Facts Underlying the Arab Muslim War Against Israel


Russia, as Sarah Palin predicted they would in 2008, is invading Ukraine.

China hungrily eyes the Japanese Senkaku/Diaoyu islands. Iran races toward the nuclear red line. In Syria, Bashar Assad, allied with Russia, slaughters thousands of own people — daily. The North Korean gulag starves millions and continues to build and test long-range missiles. Egypt is in a perpetual state of turmoil with each side accusing the other of being, get this, Jews. Iraq is ground zero for homicide bombers. Afghanistan is becoming a Taliban state… again. Lebanon slides closer to the abyss of sectarian civil war. And Fatah is on the verge of open civil war—when are they not?—as exiled terrorist leader Mohammed Dahlan, moves to depose terrorist leader Mahmoud Abbas.

And, oh yes, for all you feminists out there who agitate for the right to murder babies in the womb—of whom 84% are black—how about those honor hysterectomies,the latest atrocity authored by the Palestinians.

Protests on campus?

Of course not. The left are busy demonizing the Jewish State.

With such bloody global turmoil, President Obama moves decisively, and comes down hard on — Israel.

Yes, the community agitator with a history of Jew-hating BFFs, has chosen, once again, to hammer the Jewish State. The pretext? Apartment buildings. In the world according to Obama, Jews must be confined to a manageable ghetto. It’s not enough that the Arab and Muslim world is functionally Judenrein, for Obama and the genocidal Jew-haters of the left, the Jewish State does not even have the right to live in the Jewish State, which includes the ancient Jewish land of Judea and Samaria.

As far as Seraphic Secret is concerned, Jews have the right to live anywhere.

The End of Pax Americana, The Jews of Ukraine Under Threat — Again

This monument to the genocidal Jew-killer Bohdan Khmelnytsky still stands proudly in modern day Kiev.

This monument to the genocidal Jew-killer Bohdan Khmelnytsky stands proudly in modern day Kiev.

The Pax Americana which defined and stabilized the post-Soviet world has been discarded by Obama and the Democrat party.

Under the focus-tested phrase “smart power” the Obama Democrats have embraced the inertia of nothingness as foreign policy.

Putin watched as Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, thereby betraying Israel and the Egyptian people; Putin grinned as Obama played Chamberlain to the nuclear Mullahs of Iran. And Putin laughed as Obama erased his Syrian red line, thereby allowing Putin to control the Syrian situation and rescue Assad’s machinery of slaughter. And how Putin must have danced a Hitlerian jig when Chuck Hagel announced that the American military is being eviscerated—in order to make it, um, stronger.

Vladimir, an old and ruthless KGB hand, no doubt recognized the duplicity of Hagel’s Soviet Newspeak.

Putin took the measure of Obama, and correctly concluded that America is willfully making itself over as a power averse, Western European welfare state.

Putin no longer has to worry about a geopolitical leadership that will put limits on his use of military power. There was a time when American presidents projected strength and leadership with the threat of force as a credible deterrent. But Obama’s “leading from behind” is code for surrender, a ghastly punch line for late night television. There is zero chance that Obama will use military force. As for sanctions, well, Putin will run rings around the hapless EU and the equally ineffectual community organizer.

Putin is a predatory wolf. Obama, a slice of meat.

And you better believe that the Chinese are watching Obama carefully.

They say that history repeats itself. This is not true. People repeat themselves. And Obama’s history of appeasement is about to play itself out once again.

In the meantime, the Jews of the Ukraine are under grave threat from all factions.

Hollywood Friday Photos — The Beautiful and the Damned

Anna May Wong (1905 – 1961) was the first American-Chinese movie star. Her long career spanned silent and sound movies, radio, stage and television.Her first film role was Toll of the Sea (1922) one of the first movies produced in color. Tragically, the Production Code instituted by the studios to protect against outside censorship, which forbade race-mixing, Wong was never cast as a leading opposite a Caucasian star. Thus, she was relegated to support roles and often as a stereotypical dragon lady. This wonderful photo is by artist Man Ray, real name Emmanuel Radnitzky.

Anna May Wong (1905 – 1961) was the first American-Chinese movie star. Her long career spanned silent and sound movies, radio, stage and television. Her first film role was in Toll of the Sea (1922) one of the first movies produced in Technicolor. Tragically, the Production Code instituted by the studios to protect against government censorship, upheld anti-miscegenation laws. Thus, Wong was never cast as a leading lady opposite a Caucasian star. Her greatest disappointment, and a notorious outrage, was when MGM refused to cast her as O-lan, the leading role in their adaptation of Pearl S. Buck’s huge best-seller, “The Good Earth.” Instead, the plum assignment went to the competent but dreary Luise Rainer. For most of her career, the enormously talented and beautiful Anna May was relegated to supporting roles and B movies, frequently as a stereotypical dragon lady. This evocative photo, which views Anna May’s silken, waterfall hair, as a distinct character, is by artist Man Ray, real name Emmanuel Radnitzky.
