On the Greatness of Arnold Bocklin’s “Self Portrait With Death”

On the Greatness of Arnold Bocklin’s “Self Portrait With Death”

Art should raise the human spirit. It should elevate us into an ethereal plane…expanding our consciousness. It should give us the courage to fight! To never back down or regress into a stilted form. Art should make us feel like Roman soldiers. It should affirm the universal life essence of BEAUTY.

One painting that illustrates these ideas is Self Portrait with Death. It was created by the Swiss painter, Arnold Bocklin, in 1872.

Bocklins Self Portrait with Death

The message is simple. The artist is proud and confident; and yet Death follows him everywhere. However, the great artist is not overcome with fear. Instead, he continues to pursue his lofty goal – the elevation of human beauty in the face of danger. By doing so, he becomes a GREAT MAN.

Let’s reaffirm the beauty of life! Let’s gather the rosebuds of exquisite passion…the blessings of passionate love. Let’s look into the mirror and see the becoming man, shedding his coat of insecurity.

A picture tells a thousand words. This photo, taken at the impressive Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, shows the famous painting by Rembrandt, “The Night Watch”. We see a row of girls, typing away at their cell phones. A masterpiece of history, obscured by an Instagram like or a Facebook update.

I guess we should not bemoan the present. The digital age is here and we are immersed in it. No sense in being a Luddite and besmirching the new technologies. That being said, every coin has two sides. The implementation of a new system must, by its mere creation, obscure the work of an older one.

Will Germany Ever Receive Credit for Being a Dominant Force in World Cup Soccer?

Will Germany Ever Receive Credit for Being a Dominant Force in World Cup Soccer?

The World Cup is fast upon us. For most Americans, soccer means Brazil: Pele, Ronaldinho, etc. We know every little about the sport really. And if the media provides any coverage, it’s usually centered around Brazilian dominance. This is merely another example of the media playing loose with the facts.

Germany is neck-and-neck with Brazil for the title of “World’s Best”; in fact, Germany’s accomplishments are equal to (or more impressive than) that of Brazil.

A quick review of the numbers will prove this to be true:

1.) 4 World Cup Victories

 

Brazil Soccer WCup Germany Argentina
Germany has won 4 World Cups. Only Brazil (5) has won more.

2.) The Greatest Scorer in World Cup History

MK
Miroslav Klose has scored more goals in the World Cup (16) than any other player in the history of the tournament: not Pele or Maradona.

3.) The Greatest Scorer in a Single World Cup Tournament

GM
Gerd Müller scored 10 goals in the 1970 World Cup.  A record for most goals in a single tournament.

4.) Germany Was Playing With Only 50% of Its Players for Most of World Cup History

Soccer - World Cup West Germany 1974 - Group One - West Germany v East Germany
East Germany and West Germany were forced to play against one another for many years. In other words, they were winning World Cup competitions with only 50% of their players available.

Analysis

The question arises: Why does Germany not receive the credit they deserve in the American media? I think the answer is simple, yet too politically incorrect to utter. The American media is Jewish dominated (Max Kellerman, Chris Berman, Lisa Cohn, Bob Arum…I’ll stop there for fear of redundancy). Many of these people will never give Germany its proper recognition. They have been taught to hate Germany since they were in the crib and it’s all they know.

For my part, I’d like to see Germany win the cup again (seeing as how the United States did not qualify). The only negative part would be that it would strengthen national pride in Germany, which could lead to more support for that misbehaving young boy, Angela Merkel.

GERMANY-UKRAINE-DIPLOMACY-POLITICS
The only negative thing about another World Cup win for Germany is more support for that clown, Mr. Merkel.

At any rate, I’m looking forward to an exciting series of matches and may the best team win! See you on the pitch…

Pulp Fiction Proves That it’s Impossible to Separate an Artwork From its Sponser

Pulp Fiction Proves That it’s Impossible to Separate an Artwork From its Sponser

Pulp Fiction will celebrate its 25-year anniversary next year (it was released in 1994). When it came out, everybody applauded the picture as a work of art. The critics told us that they were lucky to witness the movie, fortunate to be alive in that time and place.

However, the Major quickly identified a demonic force at work in Pulp Fiction. I subconsciously knew that a Satanic person was behind the picture, and that his goal was the spiritual destruction of America. As it turns out, I was right!

Let me illustrate with pictures:

1.) Harvey Weinstein produced (sponsored) Pulp Fiction.

Harvey-Weinstein

2.) He “green-lighted” this disturbing scene: sexual torture and kidnapping.

3.) And he gave a thumb’s-up for this scene as well: mixing violence with humor.

famous scene

Of course, he got a fellow sadist to do the heavy lifting: i.e. Quentin Tarantino. Let’s be honest: perhaps the only person that’s more tortured than Harvey Weinstein is Quentin Tarantino. Everything from that traitor is about violence, torture and sadism. And he mixes in some clever dialog to fool the lemmings in the crowd. Meanwhile, the seditious “critic” applauds the effort, silently grinning as our cultural traditions are flushed into the toilets of degeneracy.

Has the Weinstein/Tarantino connection ever made something that inspires humanity? Can they capture the passionate wellspring of spiritual love, or of childlike innocence? They know nothing about that! Everything they make is saturated with a degenarate vision of humanity…a vision that must inevitably spring from the consciousness of its creator.

What kind of men would find humor in torturing the innocent? What kind of degenerates find it acceptable to feed these images into the minds of a nation?

Summary: It’s impossible to separate a piece of art from the artist. When the mind of an individual is layered in filth, then that’s what he’ll produce. When his subconscious goal is cultural subterfuge, then that’s what his art will portray.

Only a noble mind can create a noble art! And only a lofty soul can make an artwork that speaks to humanity.

What Milo Yiannopolous Has to Say About Male Circumcision

What Milo Yiannopolous Has to Say About Male Circumcision

There was a recent debate on the Joe Rogan show. The topic of male circumcision came up and Milo Yiannopolous was critical of the foreskin. The reason? He prefers to fellate a circumcised penis.

I’m in favor of it purely on aesthetic grounds. I have to have these things in my mouth, Ok?

Good to know, Milo. I’ll make sure to cut my genitals with a knife in order to accommodate your fellatio preferences. You sick fuck.

Milo is a gay conservative Jew (yes, it’s true). And like many “modern” Jews, he refuses to eschew the practice of dick pruning. It’s like a monkey, clinging tightly to one’s back. Now it’s clear why Milo could never carry the torch of American conservatism in the post-Trump era (despite all of the attempts of Breitbart to hoist him into that position). His lifestyle is in direct opposition to that of traditional America.

So much has been said (and not said) on the topic of circumcision. The Major will defer to the opinion of Italian sociologist Paolo Mantegazzna. His direct statement in The Sexual Relations of Mankind (1935) summarizes my feelings to a tee:

I shout and shall continue to shout at the Hebrews, until my last breath: Cease mutilating yourself; cease imprinting upon your flesh an odious brand to distinguish yourself from other men (p. 99).

Here’s a bit of science for the disbelievers: The foreskin is homologous to the clitoral hood. Not analogous (similar to) but homologous (identical in structure). That’s a critical distinction. Therefore, male circumcision is equivalent to FGM in that they both remove the “clit” : a body part whose sole function is to give sexual pleasure. Or, to put it more plainly, circumcision is a procedure that’s designed to humiliate, denigrate and – ultimately – destroy the passion of an individual.

My son is sleeping sound at the moment. I refused to let some rapist in a white coat have at his genitals with a knife. Sorry, Milo…go look for a blowjob elsewhere!

Why Does Colombia Produce So Many Serial Killers?

Why Does Colombia Produce So Many Serial Killers?

In December, I was traveling through Pereira, Colombia with my family. While I was there, I learned that Pereira was home to a grisly crime.

In 1998, the remains of 27 children were found in a vacant lot. Upon further inspection, the bodies were similar to others that were being found in Colombia at the time. Eventually, when all the numbers were tallied, around 150 bodies were found: they were all boys between the ages of 9 and 19. A few years later, an arrest was made regarding the case and the world was introduced to the most prolific serial killer of all time – Luis Garavito.

Out of curiosity, I did a little research. Here’s a list of the four worst serial killers of all time, as well as their countries of birth:

  1. Luis Garavito – Colombia
  2. Pedro Lopez – Colombia
  3. Giovanni Brusca – Italy
  4. Damiel Camargo – Colombia

This obvious question…What the hell is going on in Colombia? Why are they producing these killers?

1.) Luis Garavito “La Bestia” (The Beast)

Luis_Garavito
Luis Garavito is the most notorious serial killer in modern history: 147 confirmed murders.

Garavito was a 42 year-old Colombian man of normal appearance.  He would lure young street children away, promising to give them work, candy, etc. Then he would rape, torture and strangle them. Garavito later said that he believed he was “possessed by demons.” He blamed his perverse nature on a physically abusive father.

Garavito is convicted of killing 147 young boys however, it’s believed that he killed a total of 400. The numbers are staggering. By comparison, Ted Bundy was convicted of killing 30 people. So Garavito had 117 more confirmed victims than Ted Bundy.

But it gets worse…meet serial killer #2.

2.) Pedro Lopez (“The Monster of the Andes”)

PAL
Pedro Lopez is estimated to have killed 350 young girls…and he is currently a free man!

Lopez was also born in Colombia; in 1983, was convicted of killing at 110 young girls. However, much like Garavito, the suspected numbers are much higher (Lopez is believed to have killed around 350 young girls in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru). Lopez would abduct girls from the mountain villages of Peru and Ecuador. Then he would sexually assault and strangle them.

Like Garavito, Lopez also had a problematic childhood; in particular, he was repeatedly raped and sodomized as a young man.  What’s more unbelievable about his story is that Lopez is currently out of jail. Colombia has some of the most lenient laws in the world, so Lopez was released from prison in 2002. He served only 14 years for killing over 100 women (roughly four months for every victim).

And finally, we have another monster…

3.) Daniel Camargo Barbosa

DanielCB
Daniel Camargo is the third (first?) in a line of diabolical serial killers from Colombia.

Camargo is estimated to have raped and killed around 150 young girls in Colombia and Ecuador during the 1970s and 1980s. It was in Ecuador that Camargo committed the majority of his murders. Camargo would ask young women for help, pretending that he was a man in need of directions. They would walk together to a rural area where Camargo would subdue, rape, and kill them.

Like Garavito and Lopez, Camargo blamed his behavior on his turbulent upbringing. He was raised by an abusive stepmother that would dress him up in women’s clothing. Thankfully, Camargo was not only caught, but murdered in prison. So justice was properly administered in at least one of these cases.

Analysis

So why does Colombia have so many serial killers? The answer is complex…I’m not really sure. Was it their upbringing? Perhaps. But then again, many people that suffer abuse (both emotional and sexual) grow up to be law-abiding citizens. Was it their environment? Perhaps. But then again, many people in Colombia are normal and well adjusted.

Only one thing is obvious…Colombia needs a death penalty! All three of these men should be dead. No, not just dead…tortured and chopped up into little pieces. It’s what they deserve. The pain and anguish they have caused the victims, not to mention their families, can scarcely be imagined. I’m afraid that the leniency of Colombian law has backfired on its people.

To quote Nietzsche: “A small revenge is more human than no revenge at all.”

The LA Rams Will Have Male Cheerleaders on the Sideline…a First in NFL History!

The LA Rams Will Have Male Cheerleaders on the Sideline…a First in NFL History!

Word has come down that the LA Rams will be the first team in NFL history to have male cheerleaders.

The Los Angeles Rams announced Wednesday that two men – Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies – have joined their previously all-female cheerleading squad. While the Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts both employ male stuntmen, Peron and Jinnies will make history as the first male dancers for an NFL team.

Part of me says, “So what?” To each his own. Live and let live. Be a proud libertarian! And truth be told…I really don’t care.

Then again, I must acknowledge that culture is formed (and deformed) via the subterfuge of a natural order. Man is masculine. Woman is feminine. The family is the formation of society. Gay sex cannot produce a child, etc. These are the fundamental building blocks of society. To go against them is to subvert a natural order.

I’m afraid that we’ll have to choose a side in this gender “war.” It’s being forced down our throats and is now impossible to ignore. It’s black or white, up or down. Male or female.
