Homosexuality was a classified mental disorder until the cultural marxist Jews, Jesuits, and the US communist party infiltrated our sociopolitical institutions and made it a legal social disease used to rob, and destroy white Protestantism.

Roy Moore needs to sue the state of Alabama and uncover the blatant election fraud that happened tonight.

If possible, he can force another election. It's a long shot, but it has precedent: New Hampshire had a Senate re-vote in 1975 due to the election in 1974 being razor-thin.

Don't let 'em win.

Moore is not conceding. Good.

I hope he sues for recount after recount. Keep Jones from being seated for months. Uncover all the fake Dem votes that materialized out of nowhere in Jefferson County.

Earlier this month, Moore said, "The transgenders don't have rights," during a news conference, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

Moore's unapologetic positions — and his repeated promises to take them to the U.S. Senate if elected on Dec. 12 — were celebrated at Thursday's news conference by the religious leaders who traveled from as far as Colorado, Ohio and Texas to stand at his side.

Rabbi Noson Leiter, who once called Hurricane Sandy's destruction "divine justice" for same-sex marriage, lashed out at "homosexualist gay terrorism."

"We need Judge Moore to stand up to the LGBT transgender mafia," Leiter said. He added, "We need someone with a proven record of facing off against the gay terrorists."

Another Moore supporter, Texas Christian activist Steven Hotze, warned in 2015 that children would be "encouraged to practice sodomy in kindergarten" as a result of same-sex marriage. On Thursday, Hotze refused to describe the union of two gay people as marriage: "It's 'mirage' because it's just like a mirage — it's phony and it's fake."

North Carolina-based Christian activist Flip Benham last year warned in a Charlotte City Council meeting that the policies that protect the civil rights of transgender people would trigger "bloodshed coursing down the corners of our streets."

"We're praising everything that God says is wrong and will destroy you," he said Thursday. "Homosexual sodomy destroys those who participate in that behavior and nations that approve of it."

He offered a pointed message to Moore's critics: God "doesn't send anyone to hell. It's a place you choose to go."

Benham then turned to Moore, who was sitting a few feet away with his wife. "You got the applause of heaven."

Quote# 135132

Contrary to the common talking point that eugenics is "thoroughly debunked pseudoscience", eugenics is actually one of the most important ideas in all of human history. There's nothing pseudoscientific about the idea of improving the human gene pool. Virtually all scientists, academics, intellectuals, and progressives in the late 19th and early 20th century supported eugenics for a reason: it's the logical conclusion of Darwinian evolution.

We all recognize the importance of keeping the gene pools strong and healthy in other species, but we make an exception for our own species because we think that we're somehow immune from the accumulative effects of dysgenics. Reality check: we're not.
After the Nazis tried to implement their utopian Aryan society through utilizing extremely brutal forms of eugenics, the Western world decided to not only turn their backs on eugenics, but we went in the exact opposite direction by actually celebrating dysgenics.
The left encourages mass 3rd world immigration and miscegenation and embraces various forms of Marxism and egalitarianism, and the right demonizes birth control and abortion and embraces Christian universalism. Adopting 3rd world kids and dating outside of your race has almost become a fashion statement on both the left and the right. And the right has become even more dysgenic by viewing handicapped babies as a blessing from God. At least the left still has enough common sense to abort their handicapped fetuses. That's why down syndrome is almost completely non-existent in Iceland now.

Now, I'm not saying that we should become like the ancient Greeks and practice infanticide by tossing our handicapped babies off of a cliff, or like the early 20th century American progressives by forcibly sterilizing the feeble minded, or like the Nazis by gassing the mentally ill and other undesirables. But we need to start rethinking our opposition to eugenics now that we have enough scientific understanding and technical know-how to implement the utopian promises of eugenics without violating anyone's basic human rights.

We can all agree that countries like Switzerland and Japan greatly benefit from having an average IQ score that's about 30 points higher than the average IQ score in Nigeria and Kenya, right? Well, imagine if we could create a society that had an average IQ score of 130, 150, 180, or even 200. And imagine if we could locate the genes and alleles that make people extremely conscientious. And imagine if we could locate the genes and alleles that allow people to live long, healthy lives and break world records in sports. And imagine if we could humanely remove the genes and alleles that make people prone to criminality. We'd be able to create the most advanced civilization that ever existed within just 3 or 4 generations. And every generation would be a significant improvement over the last generation.

And we could accomplish this utopian vision without forcibly sterilizing or killing anyone. All we'd have to do is subsidize contraception and early-term abortion and make genome sequencing, embryo selection, and precision gene editing mandatory by law. Crime would disappear; productivity, GDP, and technological advancement would sky rocket; political corruption and bad governance in general would be a thing of the past; health care costs would plummet; everyone would look like supermodels; et cetera.
And leftists should support this utopian sci-fi vision as well because we'd finally be able to solve inequality and transcend the primitive tribalism that has defined our species for millennium. We'd also finally be able to fix the underlying genetic shortcomings which have held back the lower classes and brown people over the last several decades. And we'd actually be greatly diminishing human suffering by curing genetic diseases.

Eugenics is also the most logical and effective solution to climate change and a long list of other serious environmental problems. I'm a former far-left environmental extremist, so I'm very aware of the fact that human overpopulation is almost always the root cause of most environmental challenges. I'm also very aware of the fact that exponential human population growth is a looming crisis that barely anyone has the balls to talk about because they don't want to be viewed as creepy misanthropes and Bond villains. But the fact remains that our planet's dwindling natural resources simply can't sustain a population of 10+ billion people, especially if standards of living and consumption levels in the 3rd world continue to rise. So, if we have to dramatically reduce the human population, then selecting for the best and brightest simply makes sense.

"So if women should never pursue a purely sexual relationship with anybody then how do you feel about the women that are in a purely sexual relationship with you? Should they not be doing that? And by being in a sexual relationship with them how are you not knowingly defiling them based on your own standard?"

It makes me contemptuous of them. I'm genuinely disgusted with them for having sex with me, but that disgust only heightens to perverse pleasure of the sex. The fact that I'm secretly a literal Nazi and that they're having sex with me in spite of their race makes it even more enjoyable.

I'm a total degenerate for it; I won't deny that. I just can't resist black women.

The corrupt Deep State media painted Donald Trump as a sexual predator, a friend of the KKK, or even a ‘Nazi.’ Some on the left were whipped into a frenzy and claimed the world as we knew it would come to an end if the ‘orange monster’ somehow got elected.

To prevent that disastrous occurrence, a parade of women were trotted out of the woodwork to accuse Trump of sexual assault. They were all liars. Their lies may have had some efficacy in the past, but fortunately in the age of the Internet, the truth can be found and Trump became president.

Apparently, the Deep State has no other playbook. They’re now using the same lying, dirty tactics against Roy Moore. Moore wants to make America great again and does not mouth the usual politically correct platitudes. He’s not part of the Deep State, so their operatives are doing their best to keep him out of the Senate.

I think they will fail again, but just in case, I drew another cartoon to support his election.

There are some fast food restaurants that I won't go to anymore, just to avoid the transgendered employees at the ordering counter. When I go into Burger King for a Whopper with cheese (my favorite), and some effeminate sissy takes my order, I have to avoid laughing at how ridiculous the person looks. There's nothing more offensive than an effeminate male. The Devil turns people into freaks! Look what Satan influenced singer Taylor Swift to do!!! I don't know if you noticed, by someone started a rumor on the internet that Taylor Swift is a high priest in the Church of Satan. I sincerely believe that rumor was deliberately fabricated, and spread by the media, to hide my article exposing Taylor Swift and Satanism! Luciferians today control the media, Hollywood, Walt Disney, CIA, FBI, public schools, federal government, Freemasons, all major psuedo-Christian religious organizations, et cetera.

Will they say, “LET US DO EVIL, THAT GOOD MAY COME?” I could mention hundreds of evils, that are being pitched as GOOD nowadays. The Walt Disney corporation is part of our American culture, yet the average parent is woefully ignorant (or doesn't care) that Walt Disney historically is a vile haven for sex perverts. The former CEO of the company, Michael Eisner, said he thinks that about 40% of Disney's 63,000 employees are gay! Walt Disney is an Illuminati family. Luciferians are at work through Disney to prepared children for the New World Order. Most parents are woefully naive, viewing Walt Disney as something entirely good, and Disney has much good in their films, but there is a dark and evil agenda behind it all, to influence your child to embrace homosexuality, premarital sex, disrespect for parents, contempt for preachers, hatred of Christianity. It's all a necessary part to introduce children into the satanic New World Order. All of these evils are prevalent in Disney's movies.

President Trump stumps in support for Roy Moore

Rallying supporters at a venue just 20 miles away from the Alabama border, President Trump sought to discredit one of the women accusing Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct in calling on Alabama voters to vote for the Moore in the upcoming special election.

"How many people here are from the great state of Alabama?" Trump asked the audience about an hour into his remarks at an event by the president's re-election campaign.

"Did you see what happened today? Do you know the yearbook? Did you see that? There was a little mistake made. She started writing things in the yearbook. Oh, what are we going to do? Gloria Allred, any time you see her you know something's going wrong," the president said, referring to the lawyer for Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson.

Nelson is one of one eight women who have come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Moore and has brought forward a yearbook from 1977 which she says Moore signed prior to allegedly assaulting her. Moore has denied it’s his handwriting in the yearbook, and his supporters have further sought to discredit her story, noting differences in some of the handwriting on the inscription.

Nelson told ABC News Friday that she wrote a note under the inscription she says is Moore's inscription.“I had wrote under it where it happened at,” she said, but maintained that Moore "wrote the note and signed his name.”

The president, who has endorsed Moore in the election despite the multiple sexual misconduct allegations that have been leveled against him, said Friday night that the Republican Party can't afford to lose a vote in the Senate, where Republicans maintain a slim 2-vote majority.

"We cannot afford ...to lose a seat in the very, very close United States senate. We can't afford it, folks. We can't," Trump said. "We can't afford to have a liberal Democrat who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. We can't do it."

He went on to say, "So get out and vote for Roy Moore."

The White House maintains that the president remains concerned about the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Moore but say that Moore's denials should also be taken under consideration.

President Trump's remarks on Moore Friday night was the first time he has touted the candidate in a political campaign setting, but the president has previously made supportive statements about Moore's candidacy -- tweeting on Friday morning "VOTE ROY MOORE!"

Donald J. Trump ?
@realDonaldTrump
LAST thing the Make America Great Again Agenda needs is a Liberal Democrat in Senate where we have so little margin for victory already. The Pelosi/Schumer Puppet Jones would vote against us 100% of the time. He’s bad on Crime, Life, Border, Vets, Guns & Military. VOTE ROY MOORE!

The appointment of a Somalian refugee as immigration minister was indeed a direct slap in the face to every Euro Canadian in this country. The nerve of this man with that appointment; his continual appearance in "pride" parades; his donning of non-European garb at every opportunity; his pathetic crying routines; all this leaves one with a conviction he is mentally unbalanced. I have to wonder as i observe Christmas shoppers in the local Shopping Centre, just how many even know the immigration minister is a Somalian refugee? My guess would be many of the non-Euro shoppers(of which there are many now), are thankfully aware of the identity of the immigration minister.

I know that The Left Behind book series are fictional accounts wrapped around Biblical eschatology. If my memory serves me, Carpathia kills the benefactor(s) who took care of him financially and thus expected grand returns for their investment.

I've always envisioned George Soros as either the benefactor or one of the benefactors of the real anti-christ to be. Of course, that's just an impression in my mind from the account in the Left Behind stories, an impression that has stuck with me over the years. Of all the wealthy people who are either wicked or just blind and are doing what they can to prepare the world for the anti-christ, Soros has always seemed to be the pointy head of the spear.

Quote# 135100

I am 11 years old and I have practiced Falun Dafa for two years. Because of the suppression in China, officials detained many practitioners and tortured them. Among them was my father, who died in a prison when I was one. My grandparents and mother are practitioners. Through the years, I have learned from my mother and other family members what Falun Dafa is, and why it is important.

Master has helped me since I was very young. I had a rash on my entire body when I was 10 months old, which was red and itchy. Because I kept scratching, the blisters on my face broke open. Fluid came out, and I itched even worse. My mother was forced to stay away from home during those days because of the persecution. My grandparents were very worried about me. When mother returned, she felt bad and nearly wept. She had a dream that night, in which Master told her that I would be fine. When she checked me the following morning, she found I had indeed recovered. She was very happy and thankful.

Another time, I had a fever for four or five days. My mother played Master's audio lectures for a few days. When she saw that I hadn't improved much, she gave me some medicine. But this made it even worse, and Mother realized she had done wrong. Miraculously, the fever stopped that night. Similar things happened many times. Through my celestial eye, I could see my body becoming very clean because of Falun Dafa.

One day at the group practice site I saw an elderly practitioner sitting in full lotus (with both both legs crossed) while she read the Falun Dafa books. I decided to give it a try and was able to do so for half an hour the first time. Some adult practitioners asked me to stop because they were afraid it would be too painful, but I enjoyed sitting that way very much.

Several days later, I began to do the sitting meditation with my mother. I calmed down and could sit without moving. Pretty soon, I was able to see things through my celestial eye as if a curtain were lifted. I could see Master's Fashen forming a circle around the field and there was one layer of protection covering the entire field. Then a giant nail the size of a person flew towards me. Master lifted his hands and broke it into pieces. There were also other types of objects coming, attempting to harm me, but Master broke them one by one. When I told mother about this, both of us were very thankful to Master.

Sometimes I did not do well. I began to watch cartoon videos. I became addicted to them and as a result, one of my eyes became swollen. It soon became worse and my eye was nearly swollen shut. Pus oozed out and and covered my eye. One day mother and I went to another place for group Fa-study. A wasp came and stung my armpit, and it was very painful. I cried out. My tears flushed out the pus and other dirty substances from my eye. When she saw my eye recovering, my mother was grateful because through all these incidents, Master helped me let of go of my attachment and treated my eye.

When I was sometimes naughty and did not have patience, I would see bees in other dimensions chasing me. After I recognized my problems and calmed down to study the Fa, I was able to see many scenes in other dimensions. They include the Buddha world, heavenly maidens, and so on. Once as I sat meditating, I saw Master in front of me. I was curious about Master. With that thought of mine, Master allowed me to enter. Inside was beautiful light and a wonderful smell. It was very pleasant, compassionate and sacred. I was allowed to enter twice later. I saw a giant library inside Master's head, with Zhuan Falun and other Dafa books in all different languages. The books were very large and there were even larger books there.

After a while, I became a little tired and wanted to take a nap. Master said very seriously that I was too naughty and this was not the place for a nap. He told me no one was allowed to be there before. I came back to the Milky Way and the Triple-World, and I immediately saw how dull and filthy this environment is. Another time, Master showed me Zhuan Falun in the heavenly world. It was gigantic and I did not recognize the words. From this, I had better understanding of Master's words in “On Dafa (Lunyu)”,

“Dafa is the wisdom of the Creator. It is the bedrock of creation, what the heavens, earth, and universe are built upon. It encompasses all things, from the utmost minuscule to the vastest of the vast, while manifesting differently at each of the cosmic body’s planes of existence.” I seldom sat straight when I studied the Fa. One day, Master showed me a picture in which He was sitting up straight reading Dafa books. I knew I should do that too. I have not done well, both at home and in school. Mother often reminds me about it and I know I must do better. Master has compassionately taken care of me and I cannot let Him down.

So many times in the past i was willing to accept evolution theory - even i was taught it in school (without evidence lol) - but i have yet to see convincing proof.

The adherant of Darwinian evolution follow a cultlike structure, believing in unproven dogma, and they respond with ridiclue and insults to anyone who questions their theory. Last time i check nearly 50% of scientists are not convinced by darwinian evolution despite the massive attempts to promite it worldwide.

Its overall credibility (and reasons for belief) are not much better than the Christian Bible, which it was created to challenge and replace.

You keep maintaining that the word physical is irrelevant.
But physical implies that the action or event must comply with the physical laws of science.
So to enable conscious interaction with this universe rather than simple reaction, we can't be shackled by the uncontrollable rules of physically defined reaction.  The freedom for us to consciously  interact can't be defined within the constraints of pre determined physically controlled reactions.
The material properties and physical laws of interaction within this universe can demonstrably be consciously manipulated to produce the human creativity which abounds on this planet.  We live in a universe which seems obviously designed to be manipulated by conscious interaction, but this freedom to consciously interact must come from outside the physical constraints of our material universe.

Quote# 135093

Feet away from the butchers carving pork loins and beef shanks, the owners of a California meat shop have installed a peculiar sign in their window: “ATTENTION: Animals’ lives are their right. Killing them is violent and unjust, no matter how it’s done.” The odd poster seeming to discourage customers from buying their meats is the result of a months-long dispute between the owners of the Local Butcher Shop – which sells “locally sourced, sustainably raised” meat – and animal rights activists who have staged more than a dozen loud and gruesome protests outside the family-owned business in Berkeley.

With the placement of the sign, written by the activist group Direct Action Everywhere, the vegan protesters have agreed to cease their weekly rallies outside the shop, which sometimes involved nearly nude protesters dripping in fake blood and wrapped in plastic, along with recordings of pigs screaming inside a slaughterhouse.

The 15in-by-15in sign began receiving international attention this week after the activists declared victory, following four months of protests and counter-protests among liberals in the northern California college city widely known for the 1960s free speech movement and anti-war hippies. The anti-meat activists have claimed that the sign is a groundbreaking win and are now promising to target other independent merchants with similar tactics that they hope will spread across the US.

“To be threatened and forced to abide by their beliefs just makes me sad,” said co-owner Monica Rocchino as she sat outside the shop on Wednesday afternoon while customers nearby munched on the sandwich of the day. “Their tactics are really extremist … This is ethical extortion.” Rocchino and her husband, Aaron, opened the shop in 2011, promoting meats in line with a California food culture that values fresh and ethical produce.

Matt Johnson, a Direct Action Everywhere organizer, said that he and his group “challenge places that do put this ‘humane’ marketing out there. People are paying a lot more for these dead animals … They have some notion that these animals are being treated well.”

The group argues that there is no ethical way to kill animals for food and are campaigning to make Berkeley the first “city free of violence toward animals” – meaning banning the sale of meat. The Rocchinos, who partner with local farmers and offer butchery classes, reached out to the activists to find a resolution. Direct Action Everywhere leaders eventually said they would end the protests if the shop agreed to become a “vegan butcher” that did not sell any meat, or if they canceled classes.

Unwilling to sacrifice their entire business, the owners later agreed to a third option: a sign condemning the killing of animals. The activists made two additional concessions: the sign could be three inches smaller than they originally proposed and the shop could place it in a slightly less prominent storefront window. But they said they reserved the right to two protests a year, and that the agreement was “temporary”.

“We want businesses and our culture to face the truth about violence against animals,” said Paul Darwin Picklesimer, an activist who negotiated the agreement, adding: “We do feel that animals are people. We don’t feel that only humans are people, but of course it’s not universally accepted.” The attack on the Berkeley shop and threats of similar protests have sparked backlash across the state.

“I don’t understand why activists would pick on a mom-and-pop shop supporting the most humane farmers, rather than the animal factories and meatpackers responsible for brutality on an unimaginably greater scale,” said Michael Pollan, the well-known American food writer and a University of California, Berkeley professor, in an email. “Unless you believe the complete abolition of meat-eating is a realistic goal, attacking this sector of the animal economy … strikes me as misguided.”

There is a McDonald’s a few blocks away, he added. David Dewey, president of the California Association of Meat Processors, blamed cartoons for making children believe that animals have emotions and feelings. He added: “This is the order of things, even in the wild. Fish eat other fish. Birds eat other birds … That’s just the way the world circles.”

Johnson said the sign was meant to stigmatize meat-eating in the way tobacco warnings discouraged smoking. “Our vision of the world is a world in which every animal has a right to live happy, safe and free as humans by and large do,” he said.

Asked about the rights of humans who aren’t safe and free, such as prisoners, Johnson said: “It’s a form of deflection. It’s a way of not thinking about the issue at hand.”

“I feel like anybody coming here already knows where their meat comes from,” said Ariel Lay, 28, who decided to visit the shop for the first time after reading about the controversy. “They are not going to look at the sign and say, ‘Oh, I had no idea!’” In between bites of her roast beef sandwich, she added, “The whole, ‘We are not going to stop until Berkeley is a vegan city’ thing rubbed me the wrong way. You’re not going to tell me what to eat.”

Richard Healey, a 74-year-old not-for-profit consultant, who works next door to the shop and buys lunch there twice a week, said he suspected people wouldn’t read the poster and that regular customers would continue to be drawn to the delicious meats. “I didn’t even know it was there until someone pointed it out,” he said, adding, “These people make great sandwiches. I think about it and my mouth waters.”

[Under a topic called "Inceldom causes sociopath tendencies".]

shadowsoulz125: It has warped my mind to a point where my younger self would be absolutely horrified of my true thoughts. I don't care, nor love anyone at this point. Even if somehow an attractive roastie is into me, I would probably just treat her like a tool to get off. Nothing more nothing less.

Weed: Because if you were a real sociopath you would do drugs lsd like every week.. Sociopaths are adrenaline junkies, they get bored EASILY so they have to do something like 'lash out' on someone. If you were a sociopath you would accept humanity does not want you because of inceldom and you would start killing. I wish I was a sociopath tho, I think I would actually slay being a sociopath with very good social skills and tactics, manipulation and being very high T. Maybe I wouldn't have a recessed chin because probs like 95% of sociopaths are 7+/10 due to theirs N A T U R A L very high T levels. Fuark I am just having a fantasy about that. I had sociopathic symptoms when I was a kid. I don't know maybe we grew out of being sociopaths? Is that possible? Might be. I actually killed few animals and tortured my pet, threw shit all over the walls in kindergarten (I dont remember that my mom told me, mb I was 4 lmao). Me and my friend would collect snails in plastic bags and throw them against a wall watching em smash and I was like "ooo holy shit lmao llololololo", ya feel me.. but now I have a cat, my cat loves me because I love him and I have empathy towards him, we cuddle sometimes no homo because he's a bic boi. I like animals more than humans. I am being serious.. I can watch human gore but never animal gore, mostly I am disgusted by cat gore and get angry. When I watched Ice Man killer interview he was talking about killing a cat brutally and I remember getting angry at him and wanting to punch that cunt but then he switched talking from cats to humans and I calmed down and didn't mind I was kind of fascinated.

Lady Checkmate's headline: "President Trump Was Correct, "The Alt-Left is A Problem" (Links story from Time Magazine here: http://time.com/4919011/donald-trump-alt-left-antifa/)

Lady Checkmate:
The next time an alt-left troll attempts to tell you the term "alt-left" doesn't exist (because they're embarrassed they've been identified as such-*snicker*), feel free to refer them to this TIME article as well as several other online sources. Have fun :)

A few members of the alt-left (note their weapon of choice, bats-lol)
