May I Strip-Search Your Wife and Daughter? Why, Sure!

January 12, 2010

The gutless, pusillanimous wimps that American men have turned into can well be illustrated by the passivity with which American males are now letting their mistresses, wives and daughters be strip-searched at American airports by complete strangers. It is a development that is most amazing when you ponder what would have been the reaction of the typical middle-class American male of, say, 1958. The idea that some stranger was going to visually inspect his wife’s and daughter’s genitalia because a government bureaucrat said so would seem most amazing to him, and would have probably elicited a right-cross to the jaw that would have been admired by Sonny Liston. But the modern castrati of America, brainwashed in the Collectivist kindergartens set up under the so-called Capitalist Reagan and the pathetic Bush-Clinton-Bush sequel to the fiasco, and feminized by the ubiquitousness of plastics and the high level of estrogen in municipal drinking-water supplies due to the widespread use of birth-control pills, will willingly let their women be stripped and visually raped, and themselves be symbolically cuckolded, rather than say boo to the government men. The fact that corporations will be making a mint on the taxpayer selling these egregiously overpriced visual-rape machines to the government so that they can dose everyone with a little extra radiation, this fact will be overlooked, as will the victory to the terrorists of getting to expose every single American’s (heathens and infidels) genitals to a dose of radiation. Our government is making sure the terrorists destroy our civil liberty by destroying it for them.

And all this in response to the fact that the government, with the smoking gun in its hand of the underpants bomber, did absolutely nothing. Yet that same government now says, trust us, we must strip your women and gloat on them to be safe, and you will go along with it, whether you like it or not.

Congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah reported in his recent article in Newsweek that he had to argue with TSA personnel to get a patdown instead of going through the machines, which was his right according to the TSA’s own rules. That is the level of competence that the hiring of TSA personnel has achieved, that a Congressman must fight for his Constitutional Rights with a bureaucrat who may not even have a high school diploma. Welcome to the U.S.S.R.

So when it comes to flying with your womenfolk, Silverwolf’s advice to American men is, walk.

Or lope. With four legs, we Silverwolves can cover a lot of ground in a day by loping. You humans ought to try it.

The Past As Now: The Photography of Prokudin-Gorskii

September 7, 2009

Silverwolf has just seen an amazing set of photographs that have had for him the same kind of significance as when he first saw footage of a U.S. high-altitude plane, flying so loftily above California that he could see the entire outline of the State. Then there was his first seen shot of Earth-entire, something that no philosopher before him had ever seen. What would such a viewing have done to those fertile minds?

The photographs in question are those taken by Prokudin-Gorskii of Russian scenes during the years 1907-1915. Due to some triple color technique beyond Silverwolf’s limited wolf-intellect to understand such technological magics, these photos look like they have been taken yesterday with a modern camera, the images are so sharp, and the colors so vivid. And what is so shocking is that it reveals that a century ago, things looked exactly as they look now in their reality.

Those of us weaned on black-and-white imagery of WWII, or worse, the black-and-white cum hurried-marionette footage of WWI with its notorious undercranking, have come to accept from childhood that reality prior to 1946 — the full color reality we have all known since childhood — was of a different caliber. Hitlerism, and the entire world, existed in grainy black-and-white, with fuzzy edges and bad sound quality. But not many years back now, the popularization of some of the American color footage of the War made us realize that it was not so long ago. And then the serieses in color, like America at War, and the release of many super-sharp color photos of Nazi chieftains at official events, made it seem even more temporally proximate to our own time. We stopped fooling ourselves that WWII looked different in reality from Malibu Beach 2002; yes WWII had existed in color, and the colorization made it seem less sinister.

But events a hundred years ago or more, had they really existed in color? It was impossible to believe.  Had the people in those early films really not moved like tabetic marionettes vivified by Benzarene? Of course they had. They were such evil times that men must have had to be different from the folks in “Our Town”.

Prokudin-Gorskii’s photos shatter that pleasant delusion, as they show us Russia in all its blazing glory, an incredibly beautiful land where serfs were held as slaves, and the Czar’s tyranny mulcted the poor masses. Here are young girls, tea plantation managers, remote-living old hearties who must have been crazed by the silence of the woods; and people at their daily toil so arduous that it would have made American part-time workers seem like aristocracy. They all actually existed, and existed in a color realism just as vivid and fresh as our own world. Indeed, our own world, and the cosmos, is now a hundred years older and less fresh than those “youthful” days of the Earth.

Like no other documents he has ever seen, Prokudin-Gorskii’s photos show us that the Past was always as real as the Now.

But what will the Now look like in another hundred years?
