Where does that highway lead to?

At the Overman hearings in the Senate, which had resumed on February 11 [1919], the government was calling witnesses, all of them former or current government officials who described heinous scenes in which Bolsheviks committed unconscionable atrocities. The Bolsheviks had caused indescribable chaos in Russia, said the witnesses. One man who had spent time in Petrogradi.e. St. Petersberg/Leningrad. Soviet-era joke: Where were you born? St Petersburg. Where did you grow up? Petrograd. Where do you live? Leningrad. Where would you like to live? St Petersburg. testified that many of Russia’s misfortunes were due to the influx of Jewish agitators from New York’s Lower East Side.

“How would you describe these Bolshevik forces so that the average man would understand them and their composition?” a senator asked one witness.

“Like a mob of Captain Kidds with the exception that they operated by land instead of on the water,” the witness responded.

Another witness claimed with the utmost certainty that there were at least three million people in America, mostly of Russian origin, who were Bolshevik sympathizers, and among those, many were spies. And, he added, [President] Wilson seemed to be doing nothing about it. Yet another described the free love policy in Russia: all girls and boys upon reaching the age of eighteen become property of the State and must register at the Bureau of Free Love, which orchestrates forced, arranged matches once a month out of which come children who will then be government property. “Everything that makes life decent and worth living is in jeopardy if this thing called Bolshevism is allowed to go ahead,” testified a former U.S. Department of Commerce employee in Russia.

In a depressingly real sense, the Marxist glorification of work for its own sake, coupled with the naive assumption that as long as everybody is working hard, all sexual “problems” will disappear, i.e., reduce to a pastoral (and suspiciously bourgeois) vision of respectful, shy, young working men getting up the nerve to propose to respectful, shy, young working women, who must get up the nerve to respond, quiveringly, “Yes” (both, finally, taking courage from the fact that they are serving the state—the Marxist equivalent of “doing it for Old Glory”?), is historically, if not archetypally, one with the nineteenth-century industrial mythos: “Keep the proles working hard enough and they’ll be too tired to break out into the orgies of lust, rapine, and [incidentally] economic devastation [the absent text supplies for this term, “looting”] we know seethes just below the surface of every prole soul. Under industrial containment [read: exploitation/exhaustion] their sex [read: aggression] can be limited to the most conventional and tepid of expressions.” The entire template, Marxist and Capitalist, is a pre-Freudian disaster area which Freud’s own inability to distinguish between sensuality, sexuality, biological gender, and sex role socialization has done as much to perpetuate in the West as his basic discovery of the unconscious, sexual repression, transference, and infantile sexuality have prepared the groundwork to alleviate.

Same as it ever was.

The New Left

The New Left does nothing, if not represent. Wonder if the old Left, Pepto Norbizmol can even be bothered to pooer his derision upon us? His silence insures our desecration will continue!

Also, we are behind some stupid claims about the right. In doing say we have “invaded what used to be the democratic party, as it seems, via the Open Society Institute Networks and its affiliates, INCLUDING Mrs. Clinton…” Also, we’ve driven a blogger named epamonidas insane, because even in our invading state I have no idea what he/she is talking about, save some likely argument ab bloggo commentium.

Identically, we’ve been behind the exact same stupid claims- can you believe the nads on us- over at Villagers With Torches.

Elsewhere we have our New Leftian stranglehold “on the poor and “hippy” culture.” Let me put it this way, we tried to return “hippy culture” but we lost the receipt, and store credit would only get us tie dyes and a gigantic Gandalf bong. To Gondor, Shadowfax! Wait, what?

Finally, we have obtained the rarest of Pokemon, our very own Ollie North. We will deploy that mofo at every opportunity.

The New Left

na a la the old The Left, The New Left leaves our old blogs and our old fake blogs twisting like our grannie panties in the wind instead of taking your ball and going home. Why? Because the New Left forgets passwords to blogs.

Sadly it appears that the New Left is not only responsible for casting the Church of Gay into, like, total chaos, at the very self same time p-lover is seriouspantsing The Episcopal Church, the New Left is backdooring those mofos “sans lube” as they say at the Republic! If the New Left has seemed a little gay lately, roll the tape ladies!


We did start our own Church, it’s CALLED THE CHURCH OF GAY DONCHA KNOW!

In other parts of the world, we are apparently doing some other stuffs, let’s take a look:

Sunday I crawled into the Archives, braving the dark and ancient archival hazards, scattering the dust.

And I emerged from that cavernous mystery (where some say the Ark of the Covenant is still hidden) with the prize I had sought: the MacGuffin of my last article, the Crowley Artifacts. In the wee hours of Monday morning I scanned two crucial documents whose antique pre-MSDOS characters were, first, stamped, letter-by-letter by engraved hammers striking through cloth covered with ink, and, later, transferred, by offset lithography, to the kind of flat, fibrous medium they used to manufacture from fallen trees. It was a 40 year old newspaper of the American New Left Communist Underground, and it contained the work of Walt (not Aleister) Crowley, co-founder of


Reproduced for your edification, here, are the letter published in October, 1967, to which I referred in my Crowley obituary, and Crowley-original art taken directly from the cover of the following month’s issue of the Helix. I don’t know where else you can see these things but here, on

We can only reproduce them, here, on the WordPress blog format, slightly narrower than the column, and I had to do some splicing with the scanner, but if you click on them, they should open large enough, not only to read, but to see the little wrinkles in the paper.

The letter was printed with an introduction explaining that Crowley had written it just 10 minutes before going to an appointment at an Armed Forces Induction Center.

Doubt me not when my memory shudders into life (like an old Hudson), coughing and sputtering up facts of Washington history. When I say Crowley was a Communist, Crowley was a Communist. Don’t make me crawl back in there to prove Slade Gorton voted to acquit Clinton during Impeachment to circumvent the Constitution and admitted as much to me in writing. Do not doubt that I can illuminate the Dark side of Dunn and Maleng, Vance and Tebelius as well. The Archives have it all.

The New Left is such a communist baby we need to have what we were doing right there explained to us. Seriously, people the New Left urges you to consider these fine blogs whose Churches we’re burning and whose Constitutions were circumventing.


The New Left has been known to say Suck. On. This. Soget in line, cobags!
