Information Overload and the Memory Hole

The past few months in the U.S. and abroad have flown by at almost supersonic speeds. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older, or maybe it’s because of the incredible number of developments in world politics and religion, coupled with the overwhelming tidal wave of information inundating us in our media-saturated world. According to Quora, a popular Q&A website, the average daily edition of The New York Times is around 150,000 words. It’s twice that number on Sundays. Now, if you can read 300 words per minute and don’t need to eat, drink, get up to stretch, etc., you could finish that Sunday newspaper in roughly 16.7 hours. It would take 2.7 days to read all The New York Times papers published in a week. Now, add to that every other newspaper, television show, talk radio show, news blog, Twitter, and books coming out every week, and it becomes immediately clear how serious our hyperactive, gluttonous information consumption problem is.

The sheer volume and frequency of distractions, dings, updates, notifications and disruptions in the modern world has literally re-wired our brains and given rise to the phenomenon of the “Memory Hole”. The Memory Hole is defined as “an imaginary place where inconvenient or unpleasant information is put and quickly forgotten.”

Some things over the past few months that have been thrown down the Memory Hole include:

An incident at YouTube, where a woman (resettled in the U.S. as a refugee), disgruntled with YouTube’s practices of limiting the reach of certain posts, shot and wounded 3 YouTube staffers before killing herself.

The detention of Brittany Pettibone, a young Traditional Catholic and Identitarian activist, along with Martin Sellner; and a few days later, the detention and interrogation of Lauren Southern under the “Article 7 Terrorism Act” in the United Kingdom for handing out satirical flyers that said “Allah is a gay god,” which is tantamount to the enforcement of Islamic blasphemy laws in the U.K.

The rise of the #120db movement in Europe, started by victims of rape (some as young as 11 and 12 years old) who have been assaulted by migrants. This issue barely even made a blip on the radar in the States, no doubt, because the narrative has been deemed “Islamophobic” and thus counter-productive to the leftist push for migrant resettlement.

And last but not least, of course, the Pope’s scandalous comments to Italian reporter Eugenio Scalfari – now dubbed “HellGate” – have likewise been thrown down the Memory Hole, after about 24 hours of discussion in the mainstream media. All of these stories are going to be critical to understanding and framing our discussion on some comments made in the Pope’s latest “Apostolic Exhortation” (whatever that means, these days) Gaudete et Exultate (“Rejoice and Be Glad”) on the Call to Holiness in Today’s World.

Hell Does Exist, But Only for People Like Me 

There is obviously a truckload of problems with this new exhortation (Christopher Ferrara recently exposed a number of them), but there are two paragraphs, in particular, that caught my eye (and raised my blood pressure to dangerous levels): Paragraphs 102 and 115.

francis_ceo-678x381.jpg

Only two weeks have gone by since Pope Francis “allegedly” (I use this term quite loosely, in light of certain evidence) stated that Hell doesn’t exist, and that the souls of the damned just “disappear” and dissolve into oblivion. And now, apparently by some new “revelation” (from the infamous “God of Surprises”), Pope Francis has reversed course, deciding that Hell does exist, but only for people like me (a traditionalist, “neo-Pelagian”, “xenophobic”, “hate-filled” “Islamophobe”). Here is the applicable paragraph from Gaudete et Exultate:

115. Christians too can be caught up in networks of verbal violence through the internet and the various forums of digital communication. Even in Catholic media, limits can be overstepped… The result is a dangerous dichotomy, since things can be said there that would be unacceptable in public discourse, and people look to compensate for their own discontent by lashing out at others. It is striking that at times, in claiming to uphold the other commandments, they completely ignore the eighth, which forbids bearing false witness or lying, and ruthlessly vilify others. Here we see how the unguarded tongue, set on fire by hell, sets all things ablaze (cf. Jam. 3:6). 

If people like Chris Ferrara, Steve Skojec, Matt Gaspers, etc. are going to Hell for speaking the truth, at least I’ll be in good company.

Of particular interest is the phrase “unacceptable in public discourse,” which is tantamount to saying “politically incorrect speech.” Political Correctness is, of course, a Marxist tool, a defensive measure, and the counterpart to Critical Theory, the offensive tool of Cultural Marxism. Both of these tools – Political Correctness and Critical Theory – were developed by rabid anti-Catholics at the behest of Vladimir Lenin, under the watchful eye of György Lukács and the Frankfurt School of Marxist philosophers.

The kind of speech Pope Francis believes is “unacceptable in public discourse” includes things like “Allah is a gay god,” “Europe should not become Islamic,” “Muslim rape and grooming gangs are a problem,” and of course, “The Pope is promoting heresy”. Mind you, we have professors running around the country like Dr. Tat siong Benny Liew, the Chair of New Testament Studies at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts (a Jesuit School), who actively claims that Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, was a "gay, genderfluid drag king who…" (the rest is too obscene to reprint). I mean, I cringe even just retyping that grotesque headline from Pink News. And yet, the Pope remains silent on Professor Liew, not to mention on the notorious heretic and homosexualist Fr. James Martin, S.J.

So, are Brittany Pettibone, Martin Sellner, and Lauren Southern going to Hell for essentially taking the same headline and running a social experiment on the streets of London, replacing Jesus with Allah? In Pope Francis’ world, definitely. It’s interesting to note that this trio was only able to conduct their experiment for a few minutes before Muslims on the streets of London became so irate that the police told Southern to shut down their booth and pack up their materials; otherwise, their safety could not be guaranteed. On the first Easter Sunday, the Apostles were in hiding for “fear of the Jews” (John 20:19). Today, we are being told to hide for fear of the Muslims.

The Migrant Crisis

Returning to the Pope’s exhortation, the migrant crisis is specifically mentioned in paragraph 102:

102. We often hear it said that, with respect to relativism and the flaws of our present world, the situation of migrants, for example, is a lesser issue. Some Catholics consider it a secondary issue compared to the “grave” bioethical questions. That a politician looking for votes might say such a thing is understandable, but not a Christian, for whom the only proper attitude is to stand in the shoes of those brothers and sisters of ours who risk their lives to offer a future to their children. Can we not realize that this is exactly what Jesus demands of us, when He tells us that in welcoming the stranger we welcome Him (cf. Matt. 25:35)? Saint Benedict did so readily, and though it might have “complicated” the life of his monks, he ordered that all guests who knocked at the monastery door be welcomed “like Christ”, with a gesture of veneration; the poor and pilgrims were to be met with “the greatest care and solicitude”.

This paragraph, for me, is one of the most offensive and ignorant things the Pope has ever stated, and yes, for me this surpasses “HellGate”.

By some incredibly false line of reasoning, the Pope tries to draw an equivalence between ending abortion and accepting migrants in our Western countries to the point of “veneration”. This is something any sane Catholic must reject out of hand, as the sin of abortion (i.e. murder) cries to Heaven for vengeance, whereas the national defense of a country against foreign invaders (with whom Catholics have been at war for over a millennia) is not only a right but a duty of civil authorities. Protecting our sons and daughters from rape gangs (whose members, at least in the U.K., overwhelmingly share Middle-Eastern/migrant backgrounds) is not an act of hatred or violence, but an act of love for our children. If rejecting such migrants would mean a substantial drop in these and other heinous crimes (e.g. murders, stabbings, acid attacks, bombings), it seems a “no-brainer” to keep them out. These things are not minor “complications” in any way comparable to the “complications” the monks at St. Benedict’s monastery had to deal with.

When we allow these Muslim migrants into our Western countries, we are inviting not our “brothers and sisters” (as the Pope would have us believe), but an invading force of anti-Christian hoards, who worship a false “god” (ultimately, the devil – see Psalm 95:5) and ever more rapidly erode the Christian roots of our already decaying cultures.

To say that Jesus “demands of us” a warm reception and veneration of these Islamic migrants (whose stated goal is to turn Europe into a caliphate) is tantamount to blasphemy.

We must reject these suicidal notions of “tolerance” being propagated by the radical Left, including even the current Pope. We must defend our divinely revealed Catholic Faith. We must protect our countries from being subdued by these foreign invaders. And finally, we must not forget that a good defense requires a strong offense, which means once again Christianizing our countries and actively fighting for the Social Kingship of Christ in all of our affairs.

Do not allow this self-described “revolutionary” Pope to continue aiding in the brainwashing of our real Christian brothers and sisters, and do not be afraid to take a stand for God and Country. Failure to do so will result in Western Civilization itself being thrown down the Memory Hole.

New Year - Same Pope: Speech Urges Continued Immigration To Europe And U.S.

James Austin

Despite the anxious expectations of some, the world didn't erupt in a hurricane of fire in 2017, a year marked by several historic anniversaries: Protestantism (500th), Freemasonry (300th), Communism (100th), and the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima (100th).

But unlike Trads who are expecting apocalyptic signs of doom, gloom and World War III (which we may already be witnessing), I see the destruction of Western Civilization, the Church and the fulfillment of Our Lady's "annihilation of nations" prophecy a little more subtly. I'm no prophet, but Pope Francis has been working hard at fulfilling all of these ends while we were on holiday.

Let’s start with the most recent incident, shall we? The occasion was the Pope's New Year's Day address and, honestly, if I didn't already know the words were his, I might have mistaken the quote for something Tweeted by "Emily" Gorcenski, a homosexualist, transexualist, "anti-Racist" activist from Virginia.

In honor of the 51st World Day of Peace (Jan. 1), the Pope addressed the topic of “Migrants and refugees: men and women in search of peace,” during which he stated:

"Many destination countries have seen the spread of rhetoric decrying the risks posed to national security or the high cost of welcoming new arrivals, and thus demeaning the human dignity due to all as sons and daughters of God. Those who, for what may be political reasons, foment fear of migrants instead of building peace are sowing violence, racial discrimination and xenophobia, which are matters of great concern for all those concerned for the safety of every human being."

Several of his remarks, even within this brief excerpt, demand a response:

1) "...decrying the risks posed to national security..."

The following is a non-exhaustive list of “terrorist” (Islamic jihad) attacks committed in, and against the West, over roughly the past 16 years, beginning with the most recent:

It seems Pope Francis has spent all of his "compassion" on the ideological brothers and sisters of the jihadis and is fresh out of actual compassion for the untold thousands of victims – those who have been murdered, raped, mutilated, or otherwise terrorized by adherents of the “religion of peace.” 

The Pope, like most other radical Leftists, is completely blind to the very grave and serious threat against Western society posed by Islam, with its creeping Sharia law and its fundamental incompatibility with our already established societies.

The fact that Francis and the Left, in general, seem completely unable to admit these terror attacks are real, becoming more frequent and painful to the victims, as well as their families and friends, is incredibly frustrating for me, so we're going to move on to the next point.

2) "... demeaning the human dignity due to all as sons and daughters of God."

Being human does not automatically make one a son or daughter of God. Yes, every human person is made in His image and likeness (cf. Gen. 1:27Jam. 3:9), but because of original sin we are “by nature children of wrath” (Eph. 2:3). The only remedy for our fallen state is the reception of supernatural grace, which, as the Council of Trent teaches, involves:

“a translation from that state in which man is born a child of the first Adam to the state of grace and of the ‘adoption of sons’ [Rom. 8:15] of God through the second Adam, Jesus Christ, our Savior; and this translation, after the promulgation of the Gospel, cannot be effected except through ‘the laver of regeneration’ [Tit. 3:5], or a desire for it, as it is written: ‘Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God’ [John 3:5].” (Decree on Justification, Denz. 796)

In other words, unless one “believeth and is baptized” (Mark 16:16) into the Mystical Body of Christ – the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church – (or at least believes in Christ and desires baptism), he or she is not a child of God. This is not a slight against non-Catholics; it is a divinely revealed truth that must be taken seriously.

Since we're quite sure that most of the "refugees" invading Europe do not meet the above criteria, I'm not sure what dignity Pope Francis is worried about demeaning. Certainly, there are basic courtesies we should afford to everyone, regardless of their religion, ethnicity, social status, etc. I don't spit in the face of my bartender, for example, because she happens to be a radical feminist (I even go out of my way to tip well!). And we shouldn't needlessly offend people by telling them that if they're not Catholic they're going to hell. These, of course, are courtesies not afforded to Christians in the Arab world, something which even the ultra-liberal Huffington Postadmits.

So in the wake of the very real threat which Islam poses to the West, and the even greater risk of losing our very identity in Western Europe – indeed, losing Western Civilization itself, due to the incredibly high birth rates of Muslims – we need to stop worrying about offending certain identifiable groups of foreigners (read: Muslim invaders) and start asking ourselves: "Are we committing cultural and ethnic suicide right now?"

3) "...foment fear of migrants instead of building peace are sowing violence, racial discrimination and xenophobia..."

The people who are fomenting fear of migrants are the migrants themselves. Every new attack, every new rape, every new bomb, every single threat made by migrants foments fear.

The people who are sowing violence are the migrants themselves. See the above list of terror attacks, not to mention all the attacks that were discovered and terminated by our (uncomfortably large and out-of-control) intelligence agencies. I mean, just look at this headline from Newsweek magazine: “Muslim Anti-Semitism Threatens France's Democracy.”

Xenophobe. Racist. Pope Francis just threw out two of the Left's most common insults, normally reserved for Republicans. Too bad the Pope left out all the other good ones. No doubt he really wanted to label those of us in the West concerned with preserving our land and culture as Islamophobic, Transphobic, Homophobic, Misogynistic, Bigots.

And by the way, calling people names is not an argument.

4) "...great concern for all those concerned for the safety of every human being."

This is the most infuriating feature of the Pope's message. Earlier in his speech, he said, “In a spirit of compassion, let us embrace all those fleeing from war and hunger, or forced by discrimination, persecution, poverty and environmental degradation to leave their homelands,” but fails to point out how dangerous it is to walk through Islamic No-Go Zones, which are popping up all over Europe. He fails to mention the Muslim Grooming Gangs who "failed to integrate" into Western society. He fails to make any Catholic distinctions throughout his entire speech.

In short, I believe it's safe to say this Pope is a failure. Not only is he failing to guard the Deposit of Faith, as a matter of fact, he is setting up Europe for one of the greatest sackings in its history, one which Our Lady helped us to avoid at the Battle of Lepanto.

So when Pope Francis says that modern refugees (who commit crimes, suppress Christianity in their own countries, and often come to the West illegally) are following in the footsteps of Joseph and Mary, who were on their way to comply with the wishes of their government by registering for the census, I can begin to understand why some people are calling for the Pope to “Repent or Resign.”
