Tales From the Latrine: When Decadence Had The Decency to Lurk Underground

How could we ever forget the "geniuses" (Spittoon, please) of Paris, London and the wannabes who did poor imitations of them and so often died trying? For example, in the 1840s French Poet Gerard de Nerval walked a pet lobster through the park of the Palais Royal on a pale blue ribbon. He preferred lobsters, he said, because “they don't bark” and because they “know the secrets of the deep.” Nerval is quoted as saying, “Why should a lobster be any more ridiculous than a dog...or any other animal one chooses to take for a walk? I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures.”

Chronology of Decadent Bowels Movement

1784 Beau Brummel (1778-1840), father of the Dandy movement, invents the necktie (Take that, Mr. Guimares!)

"An aspiring dandy must have "no profession other than elegance. . . no other status but that of cultivating the idea of beauty in their own persons. . . . The dandy must aspire to be sublime without interruption; he must live and sleep before a mirror." -- Charles Baudelaire

And today? Television and all the visual media are attempting to turn all our daughters and sons into drug & body-dealing Shiksas(1) for, what else? Lucre; and, of course, for the 'entertainment' of their masters. And then the others...Enter the dandy: Just where do all these queer birds come from, my dears? Hierarchy, quite secular too, I assure you, darling. It's hierarchy, we have our popes too, you can believe it, and they pay better than yours, and ours are quite unhampered by all that religion. Queer on the top, queer on the bottom in this city. All the better to undo your society, my dears. And all "genders"! "We make them $$$ quite easily, darling, out of thin $$$ air, if they ever want to work in this town again"! And how easily they obey! Woof, woof...you're all voyeurs, my dears.

They got the power who
cut the checks


--->"Mexican law experts claim decision legalizing gay ‘marriage’ is ideological and unconstitutional." Yes, yes, they know you know, but they (the money masters) don't care that you know. They have the power at the moment and you don't. It's the way they play.

--->Black Genocide, Planned Parenthood's got the power. And they have facts they want to hide.

--->Homosexual 'Marriage' Advocates Seek to Destroy Matrimony and Society Itself: Cardinal Archbishop of Mexico City. Yup. Old news by now. Nothing new here but location.

--->Do the good, apart from confessing the Faith, owe amoral tyrants the truth? There are many ways to skin a cat.

--->Does William Shatner know what we Irish mean when we say shat, as in past tense?

(1) "Shiksa (Yiddish: שיקסע, Polish: siksa) or shikse, is a Yiddish and Polish word that has moved into English usage, mostly in North American Jewish culture, where it may be used as a pejorative term for a non-Jewish woman, but is now often used satirically. Not all gentile non-Jewish (goy) women are referred to as shiksas, only those who are intervening with Judaism in some way, e.g. dating jewish men, intermarriage, etc. Typically, although not exclusively, "Shiksa" refers to an attractive woman, the type who more easily can tempt Jewish men and boys to stray away from women of their own faith. Among orthodox Jews, the term may be used to describe young Jewish women who fail to follow orthodox religious precepts. The equivalent term for a non-Jewish male is shegetz.

"In South America (Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay), the term "shiksa" is used by both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews to indicate a housekeeper or maid and not simply a non-Jewish female. The word shiksa is etymologically partly derived from the Hebrew term שקץ, שכץ sheketz, which means "abomination", "impure," or "object of loathing", depending on the translator"---Wikipedia

If (post)modern Jews could once again learn justice, mercy and righteousness as their fathers taught, there could be much respect. But mass media, reflecting so much (post)modern Jewish mogul amoralism seeks to trash our daughters and sons; and so non-violent opposition is set. Practically the whole world sees and knows. But there is enough wickedness to go around today, and Jewish media moguls are hardly alone in choosing the way of nihilism. It was---to take but one example---a poor Catholic pig, Penthouse founder Bob Guccione, who spent a life trashing our children, though he never learned the nihilist lesson of Caligula; may he be converted. The trouble with nihilism is that it ends up devouring even its proponents after they have prospered for a time.

--->Our Worst Enemy by Rabbi Daniel Lapin. Why can't the mogul's see the truth of what this serious man says? "Apparently Jews," he says, "may behave outrageously while Christians, however, will be held to a higher standard." I think we must all get back to decency, Jew and gentile. "To live is to change, to be perfect is to have changed often."-- John Henry Newman

--->Mossad's Seductive 'Honey Trap' Is Kosher
, Rabbi Finds...

"He that deceives the just in a wicked path, shall fall into his own snare: and the upright shall possess his goods"---Prov 28:10
