Congratulations to Taiwan for Its Sodomitical Marriage Ruling

For 24 May’s court ruling on gay marriage in Taiwan, I have just a few gay words for such a happy occasion.

must-liberate-taiwan

‘We must liberate Taiwan.’

For this historic and brave moment, the strongest congratulations and gun salutes are in order – indeed, the event deserves a nuclear salute. Let the world know: Love is love. Taiwan, not China, is on the right side of history. It is entirely laudable, after all, to be at pains not to identify as Chinese while also claiming 5000 years of Chinese history as your own, and even more so to stake your identity on the kind of difference that draws upon you the fiery wrath of Almighty God.

Reread the Platform Sutra?

huineng_wallsutra

I wonder if I should reread the Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch 六祖壇經. It’s been almost ten years since I read it last as an undergraduate at Berkeley, and it might be useful (for me, anyway) to write annotations on it as a Christian. On the other hand, would it be better for me to read and annotate something else this summer?

The Taiwanese Cannot Be Trusted

You v. the guy she told you not to worry about.

One cannot trust the Taiwanese. They cuck to the degenerate values America exports abroad, and they cuck to Japan almost 70 years after the Japanese left Taiwan. They say they are not Chinese despite speaking the same language as Xiamen on the mainland, and then they turn around and tell Koreans that they have no culture of their own and that the Koreans are Chinese. One can only conclude, from such beastly behaviour, that the famous politeness and hospitality of the Taiwanese is made null by the machinations of the Pentagon and the State Department. Indeed, they cannot even make hongdousha 紅豆沙 properly, which is the happy medium between lumpy beans and gooey paste, but can only produce an inferior red bean soup, whose consistency is as lumpy as their culture is cucked. As Jacques Chirac famously said of the British, ‘One cannot trust people whose cuisine is so bad.’

Apologies for being a day late with my Thursday ethnic shittalk post. ごめんなさい。

I’ve Been Away from Twitter Since Lent


Clearly, the world has not stopped turning because of my absence from Twitter. On the other hand, with some discipline – which I may not have – it can be a useful tool. Nevertheless, the time away certainly has been salutary, and I’m glad to have taken it.

‘Clash of Civilizations’ Does Not Help White Folk

Godefroy de Bouillon faisant acte d’allégeance
à l’empereur byzantin Alexis Comnène. Alexandre Hesse.

Eugene Montsalvat explained last year how White peoples’ understanding of their national struggles as an existential conflict between ‘European civilization’ and ‘Islamic civilization’ must be discarded in favour of coexistence and mutual aid against a common enemy. He showed how the current Islamic threat was in fact a creation not of the Arab world but of the globalist agenda of US foreign policy.

The enemy, therefore, is not Arabs or Muslims but globalism and those who serve this false god, and against this enemy all who love their own nations must be united in struggle, both physical and spiritual. Read the rest of my article at ARC Media and tell me what you think.

Against Jake Meador the Trad Dad?

Jake Meador with Rod Dreher

At Thermidor Mag, P. T. Carlo has written against the trad dads and their bourgeois apologism. I agree with him, and my hatred of most self-styled traditionalists’ nasty penchant for doubling down on bourgeois commitments – as Cyprian of Carthage says (Epistulæ 74.9.2.179–82), ‘custom without truth is an error dressed in old clothes’ – but I was a little surprised to see Jake Meador looking back at me in the photo. Hi, Jake. Don’t get purged in the DOTR, mkay? Well, at least you don’t wear problem glasses.

John Cosin’s Interleaved Book of Common Prayer Against the Puritan Objectors

Notes from the interleaved copy of the Book of Common Prayer kept by John Cosin, who after the restoration of the Stuart monarchy became Lord Bishop of Durham.

Aye, apparently WordPress allows ebooks to be embedded from archive.org. You can view the book in full screen if you want.

Enjoy Dr Cosin’ retorts and private responses to the Prayer Book’s puritan surveyors who object to its provisions.

Ethnostates? Look at the Chinese Empire

chine-composition-ethnique

Those who think about the possibilities of culturally and (for the most part) racially homogeneous ethnostates for their nations, to protect their cultures, often envision small states in which such homogeneity can be had. It may be useful, however, to consider China, which though not at all a proposition nation is a very diverse empire whose Chinese cultural identity has lived for thousands of years, through many dynasties. Check out my article at ARC Media and see what you think.

Christianity Refuted by the Use of Easter Rabbits

Quote

Lenin Against Free Love as ‘Bourgeois’

A letter by Vladimir Lenin, to Inessa Armand, 17 January 1915, in Collected Works 34, suggests that the hippie New Left’s sexual degeneracy is (at least in the eyes of Lenin) related more to bourgeois society than to socialism:

‘I feel bound to make one point right away. I suggest you delete altogether paragraph 3 dealing with “the demand (on the part of women) for free love”. This is, in fact, a bourgeois, not a proletarian demand. What do you really mean by it?’

US Air Strikes on Syria: Betrayal

President Bashar al-Assad

After the alleged use of chemical weapons in northern Syria by the Syrian army, and just a week after the Trump administration said that US diplomatic policy on Syria was no longer focused on making Bashar al-Assad leave power, Donald Trump says he has changed his mind on Mr Assad. So much for détente with Russia. Less than an hour ago, news broke that the US military had fired more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Syrian targets near Homs, Syria. Mr Trump, I thought, might give us a few years of peace. The Deep State and those near Mr Trump have decided otherwise, and so, it seems, has Mr Trump himself. (These developments are in line, I should think, with Steve Bannon’s removal from the National Security Council’s principals committee.) The media have done it again, the benefit accruing to Daesh and the Israeli state. Mr Trump has betrayed us.

Update:

The Trump administration denies accidental incidents between US and Russian military forces in Syria.

Remember, Chinaman: watching anime is cultural cucking. Anime is of the devil, and the Lord’s hatred of the cruel dwarf pirate 倭寇 runneth to the third and fourth generation.

Who Giveth This Chinese Woman?

Grace Kelly, accompanied by her father, arrives at the cathedral to be married.

The Book of Common Prayer directs that the priest should ask, ‘Who giveth this woman to be married?’, but it does not specify the manner in which he should receive an answer. Generally, the bride’s father, standing to the bride’s left, takes her right hand and delivers it to the priest; in so doing, he may also explicitly say, ‘I do.’ In a Chinese wedding, though, there are other ways this could well be done, and there is another form of words that I imagine would work, from the ‘Airs of States’ 國風 in the ancient Odes 詩經, the poem ‘Peach Tree’ 桃夭:

桃之夭夭、灼灼其華。
之子于歸、宜其室家。

The peach tree is young and elegant;
Brilliant are its flowers.
This young lady is going to her future home,
And will order well her chamber and house.

桃之夭夭、有蕡其實。
之子于歸、宜其家室。

The peach tree is young and elegant;
Abundant will be its fruits.
This young lady is going to her future home,
And will order well her house and chamber.

桃之夭夭、其葉蓁蓁。
之子于歸、宜其家人。

The peach tree is young and elegant;
Luxuriant are its leaves.
This young lady is going to her future home,
And will order well her family.

As the Mao Prefaces say, ‘ “Peach Tree” is [about] the queen consort’s directives. Through her freedom from jealousy, the relation between males and females was made right; marriages were celebrated at the proper times; and there were no unmarried people in the kingdom.’ Then, the vows once taken, would these words of the poem ‘They Beat Their Drums’ 擊鼓 ring true:

死生契闊,與子成說。執子之手,與子偕老。
For life or for death, however separated,
To our wives we pledged our word.
We held their hands; –
We were to grow old together with them.

Thus let all be done in order, under Heaven’s will.
