There is more spam coming through at present, but it’s being quietly dealt with. Did a lot of text yesterday, so a fair number of memes tonight. The Son says I should crop the image…. which I did.
The woke left are doing what they always do when they can’t win arguments: they injure, hurt and kill. This is not new. There is a long line of martyrs to progressivism, dating back to the dawn of the Jacobins.
In 1792 a guillotine was set up here and the killing began.Father Z’s blog.
Robespierre and Barère made terror an instrument of governance: “Terror is nothing more than speedy, severe and inflexible justice; it is thus an emanation of virtue”, quoth Robespierre. Soon to be the motto of the DNC once The Squad takes over.
On 17 July of this same year, 1794, 11 Discalced Carmelite nuns of the Carmel of Compiègne, together with three lay sisters and two tertiaries were guillotined and buried in a mass grave in the nearby Picpus Cemetery. They had for a while been living with English Benedictine nuns, who were forbidden their native England. The Carmelites dedicated themselves to prayer for the restoration of peace in France and for the Church. Hence, they were arrested, shifted to Paris, and publicly murdered for the encouragement of the mob. It sounds rather like what the Left does to people who raise their voices in the public square. First it’ll be razors on Twitter, then physical attacks on streets then round ups of the “unwoke”.
As the Carmelite nuns, aged 30 to 78, went to the razor, they renewed their vows and sang the either the Salve Regina or the Veni Creator Spiritus, accounts vary.
One by one they knelt before the prioress and asked permission to die.
“Permission to die, Mother?”
“Go, my daughter!”
It appears that Facebook have not read the church fathers. To be fair, I am still working through them. This quote is from St Augustine. Labeled Hate speech.
“Let us never assume that if we live good lives we will be without sin; our lives should be praised only when we continue to beg for pardon. But men are hopeless creatures, and the less they concentrate on their own sins, the more interested they become in the sins of others. They seek to criticize, not to correct. Unable to excuse themselves, they are ready to accuse others.”St Augustine, Quoted Legal Insurrection
Enough of this. The Pine 64 pro is coming, but in the meantime, single board computers are being used to set up parallel processing for folding and genomics.
