“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

Whoopi and Behar in the Battle of Who Is the Biggest Ass


Whoppiebeherkissing
The mother of all comments on the Goldberg/Behar walk-out on The View from House of Eratosthenes
"Maybe I’m over-sensitive to this (since it’s my job and all), but it seems to me that Behar-style liberalism — which is just plain old liberalism with a big-ass megaphone — pretty much boils down to the endless assertion that I Am Smarter Than You, which is the professoriate’s favorite pastime. It trickles down from the higher reaches of academe, becoming dumber and more obnoxious at every remove.
"For instance: some philosopher raises an interesting, and valid, question about the epistemological underpinnings of science or math. Actual scientists, engineers, etc. don’t care, since 2+2 will still equal 4 no matter how many fancy words like “unfalsifiability” and “paradigmatic” you throw at it.
"But then some history professor gets ahold of it, and all of a sudden it becomes “’science’ is a social construction.”
"And then some English professor gets ahold of it it and it becomes “’science’ is just a social construction.”
"Then some Womyn’s Studies professor jumps in with “reality (gravity, whatever) is only a social construction”…
"…and this, filtered through the pot-addled brains of several generations of pretentious, perpetually indignant undergrads, allows idiots like Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to blithely dismiss honest-to-god, slap-you-in-the-face facts that don’t fit their politics. And that, in turn, allows them to remain Smarter Than You, no matter how great the gap between your respective IQs or your relative command of verifiable data.
"And if you don’t believe me, that’s because you’re just in thrall to the reified paradigmatic hermeneutic cisgender phallocentric neo-colonial praxis."
