That's not the sort of thing I tune in Fox to see. The interview showed the degree to which the normalization of the obscene has advanced in our culture, and is being significantly helped along by men like Neil who are looked up to and admired by other men. My main problem with this particular show stems from the fact that I recognize Fox News as the best thing currently out there - and yet, every so often, they feel compelled to put a pseudo-sophisticated pig on the air and give a plug, however mild, however editorially tempered, to America's disgusting Masturbation Industry. Why?
In today's entertainment culture, Playboy is seen as a milder, more "sophisticated" and more acceptable form of porn. After all, major Democratic Party fund raisers have been held at the Playboy Mansion. The Democrats have probably raised more political funds off of the porn industry than they have from the Red Chinese military, or even the Abortion industry. The reason for all the high-placed respect shown to Playboy has much to do with the wildly misplaced arrested-adolescent perception that Playboy represents, not only adult, but super-sophisticated and even philosophical adult material; see?
And this misplaced arrested-adolescent perception prevails largely because Hef was so often shown smoking a pipe, and he once wrote a long, nihilistic and hedonistic diatribe called the Playboy Philosophy, which makes him, in the eyes of the semi-literate, a philosopher. And the Playboy bimbos - excuse me, I mean ladies - are all so smart, and they all have such talent, you see. And where is the evidence for all these smarts and all this talent? Well, they all have nice boobs and nice butts, and - well, that's about it. And they show, graphically, that they are quite willing to spread their legs not only for the sophisticated droolers, the ones smoking pipes and wearing tuxedos and looking unconcerned, but for the cameras, so that all drooling jerk-offs may indulge themselves in an orgy of fantasy. Isn't that sophisticated? Isn't that adult?
I submit that it is infantile, and that it is enslaving, and that it is unworthy of the attention of men, except when that attention opposes it. Hef is no different than Flynt. These crude, manipulative bastards take women who are daughters of God and they shame them, and they disgrace them, while making them feel as though they are competitively accomplishing something good, and pay them with large sums of money, material goods, and even a launching pad for some sort of show-biz career, and they do all this to them for money and fame and empire. Every woman ever born was called to a higher human dignity than this. There is and can be no worldly reward worthy of that higher dignity.Buddy, let me tell you something: For everything you do, and everything you say, someone is watching and listening, whether you are aware of it or not. Words and actions have affects on others. What we all collectively say and do, the sum of our collective behavior, is a direct reflection of the sum of our individual moral and ethical standards. Men like Hef and Flynt clearly display the moral standards of BMDFP10 , Freud, Jung, Kinsey and Dr. Ruth. This standard stands in stark contrast to the honorable ethos of Western Civilization upon which America itself is based.
The usually gradual and sometimes not so gradual migration away from our ancient Judeo-Christian moral roots is, predominantly, toward an atheistic morality, which is to say, no morality. For atheism has no moral code, and no roots. It may be said that the atheist is without roots, without direction, and without purpose. A pointless existence. Is that the direction we want America to go? Look closely at what the greatest atheists in history - Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung - did to the masses. Look at the gulags, the concentration camps, the death camps, the Siberian camps, the enslavement of whole nations, the total repression and subjugation of religions and religious cultures, the quite serious threat of world domination of that order, and then tell me, with a straight face, that that repudiation of Western Culture is preferable to the strengthening of it.
Do not pretend that porn moves us in any direction other than away from Judeo-Christian morality. We have ample historical evidence to show what lies in that moral, or rather immoral, direction. Unrepresentative yet predominantly immoral show-biz, transmitted beyond our shores, already portrays us inaccurately to the rest of the world as a decadent people. Hollywood is not an accurate reflection of America, but the outside world doesn't know that. Unfortunately, neither do a lot of younger Americans; TV is, for many of them, a major source of their early moral formation. The "normal," or increasingly normalized so-called adult behavior they witness on the tube goes a long way toward forming, or mal-forming, their own developing personal guiding ethos.
Let the Cavutos of the world publicly wink at porn, keeping their kids from it, but indulging in it themselves, because they see themselves as sophisticated, and adult, see? You and I are called to rise above that level. Turn away from this crap. Set a good example. Get the girlie-calendar out of your garage. Don't just talk the talk, but walk the walk.
Be a real man, to the glory of God, and for the betterment of future generations.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

The Purpose of this grouping of links is to provide a record of Mainstream Media lies, liars and how journalists are trained and paid by their employers to lie.
The Mainstream Media Pages
Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, every big name news anchor and reporter in American journalism lied, big, bold and proud, in full support of the Communist cause against America, all throughout the entire Vietnam War, and it has only gotten worse since then.
The Mainstream Media Pages: Soft Marxist Propaganda disguised as News. The Mainstream Media Pages show the linkage between Journalism, Politics and Marxism.
World War III is beginning, and the Big News is the "News"? The world is tumbling into global war, but Journalism is all atwitter about Brian Williams. Go figure.
The field of Journalism is infested with Professional Liars. Professional Liars predominate in the loftier positions of mainstream media.
How Cronkite and the SLIMC lost the Vietnam War for America. With the whole SLIMC overwhelmingly Marxist, the Reds couldn't possibly lose politically and publicly that which they couldn't possibly win militarily in the Vietnam war.
Old Traitors Never Die; They Don't Even Fade Away . . . Cronkite returns, to compare the new Iraq situation to his personal greatest achievement: the loss of the Vietnam War. Perhaps it's wishful thinking on his part.
Regarding the SLIMC Vs. the Truth Regarding the SLIMC (Secularist Liberal Intellectual Media Complex) and its treatment of the Truth
A closer look at the "Bush lied people died" Leftie flagrant categorical lie. If it is true that "Bush Lied, people died" then how does it follow that the UN, and all those countries, and all those Democrats, all said what Bush said, long before he ever said it?
Mainstream Media Lies and Liars just keep foaming up and building pressure. If you want to look at some really fascinating current socio-political phenomena, look at the current build-up of mainstream media lies and liars.
Right and Wrong, and what happens when we no longer recognize it. The difference between Right and Wrong is fixed forever; or, is it?
The Leftie-Liberal Beat Goes On: More anti-American lies reported as "News". The Democratic Party's yellow-bellied cut-and-runners would have you believe that United States Marines are wanton murderers of civilians.
Tet Lie Redux? "Cloning" the massive media lie about Vietnam's Tet Offensive. Tet Lie Redux: An epic, lopsided, monumental military victory was turned into a political defeat by our media's flagrant lies during the Vietnam War. Now, they're doing it again, this time in Iraq.
"The History Channel" repeats the flagrant categorical lies regarding Pius XII. Ho hum, heavy sigh, and here we go again. Once again, we see show-biz "Historians" bypassing actual historical documents in favor of purely anti-Catholic show-biz fictional works, for fun and profit.
What is, and why, this linkage between Fox News and the Playboy Empire? Should prominent men in the public eye work to strengthen our common Western moral ethos, or promote the new and more random, directionless, relativistic moral standard?
Of Illegal Aliens Vs the Berlin Wall, and Sovereignty Vs the Global Village. Marxism - or, if you will, Social Darwinism - presents the notion of Social Evolution, and predicts a final end of national sovereignty, & a perfect, government-less, Global Village; Heaven on Earth.
The greatest tool of the Leftist MSM is the tightly-controlled "opinion poll." Leftist "Spin" is glaringly obvious in mainstream news reporting today. But that Spin is greatly magnified and enhanced through the use of the carefully crafted public opinion poll.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
Three Fatal Oversights of the Top Conservative Cognizanti: Glenn, Rush and Sean. Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity are on the right track, but just nibbling around the edges of who the enemy is.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
