Let the SCOTUS look to Baltimore & that Solitary Black Mother on Gay Marriage

Lt. Kamin­sky: You wanted con­fir­ma­tion, Cap­tain? Take a look! There’s your confirmation!

Tora Tora Tora 1970

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

Luke 21:33

Yes­ter­day while most of the coun­try was watch­ing Bal­ti­more the Supreme Court heard argu­ments to decide if the def­i­n­i­tion of mar­riage that had endured through­out human his­tory was to be tossed out and rede­fined in a way that not only the found­ing fathers but most amer­i­cans of a mere gen­er­a­tion ago, would not have imagined.

Given that gay mar­riage only became legal in Amer­i­can in 2004 by a 43 vote in the most lib­eral state Supreme Court in the land (Mass­a­chu­setts) and the unwill­ing­ness of Gov­er­nor Mitt Rom­ney to push back in the slight­est against this idiocy, the fact that the Supreme Court is expected to uphold the nar­cis­sis­tic idea that mar­ry­ing within one’s own sex is a basic con­sti­tu­tional right is noth­ing short of remark­able (con­stant cheer­lead­ing by the entertainment/​media com­plex not withstanding).

What’s even more remark­able in my eyes how­ever is that events in Bal­ti­more that have caused many eyes that would nor­mally be on the court to be else­where have given the jus­tices who will be rul­ing on gay mar­riage a look at the future they are prepar­ing to create.

The riots give the answer to the ques­tion: What do you get when you have a cul­ture when the pres­ence of both a father and mother is con­sid­ered unim­por­tant in the rear­ing of chil­dren? The expe­ri­ence of the Black fam­ily over the last five decades answers this question.

Con­sider: At the same time that civil rights laws were free­ing black Amer­i­cans from cen­turies of legal restraints by nar­cis­sists redefin­ing mar­riage (sound famil­iar) and human­ity itself to suit their cul­tural desires, an event that should have been the pre­lude for black Amer­ica to jump into a golden age, two other forces from lib­eral Amer­ica, one cul­tural & one polit­i­cal, arose that would have a cat­a­strophic effect on the black fam­ily which had so nobly fought for the rights that were finally being acknowledged.

First came the sex­ual rev­o­lu­tion that not only shat­tered the con­cept of sex within mar­riage as the proper moral norm but brought with it the con­tra­cep­tive cul­ture giv­ing the illu­sion of divorc­ing sex from chil­dren (with abor­tion as the final card to play in an emergency).

Nearly simul­ta­ne­ously came the Great Soci­ety which among other things gave the poor, in the form of gov­ern­ment cash assis­tance, an incen­tive to aban­don the fam­ily unit for sin­gle moth­er­hood with­out a hus­band and father in the house.

This com­bi­na­tion of incen­tives com­ing at this time of tran­si­tion for the black fam­ily was the key ingre­di­ent in its destruc­tion. Sin­gle par­ent house­holds, abor­tion and absent fathers increased while mar­riage decreased.

The result, two gen­er­a­tions later the norm within the black com­mu­nity is now the absence of an intact fam­ily with a father & mother present in the home and the fur­ther absence of a grand­fa­ther to rein­force fatherly val­ues if acci­dent or cir­cum­stance causes the fathers loss.

Nor­mally the dis­as­trous results of this, while appar­ent daily in the black com­mu­nity is invis­i­ble to soci­ety as a whole (with the excep­tion of judges, police and social work­ers) but the cri­sis in Bal­ti­more is giv­ing the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion and the world a vivid view of this new cul­tural par­a­digm. And the best illus­tra­tion of this view came from an angry mother of a riot­ing son.

Yes­ter­day all over face­book and social media peo­ple cheered (with some lib­eral excep­tions) the video of a black mother dis­ci­plin­ing her son for tak­ing part in riots. In the midst of the cheer­ing nobody seemed to ask the obvi­ous question:

Why was there only one mother of a rioter tak­ing action? Where were the rest of the moth­ers & fathers?

Every sin­gle one of those riot­ers had a mother, yet we only saw one tak­ing actions. Every sin­gle one of those riot­ers had a father, yet we didn’t see a sin­gle image of a father pulling a rioter of the street.

I sub­mit and sug­gest that if black Amer­ica had that same ratio of intact fam­i­lies with fathers and moth­ers in the home today as it did in the mid 50’s the num­ber of teens riot­ing would have been tiny as their con­cern over the reac­tion of an angry father would have over­rid­den the peer pres­sure to raid a mall, set fires or destroy & loot stores.

I fur­ther sug­gest that events in Bal­ti­more vividly illus­trate what hap­pens to a cul­ture when you have gen­er­a­tions of peo­ple who do not have the tra­di­tional nuclear fam­ily to rein­force val­ues, when the value of a male and female role mod­els is dis­counted and when soci­ety or a sub­set of it rejects it as the desired norm.

Now in the end the final respon­si­bil­ity for the actions of the riot­ers, the inac­tion of their par­ents, and their fail­ure to said par­ents to imbue either the val­ues or the fear that would pre­clude vio­lent acts by their prog­eny, lies with them.

But while theirs is the respon­si­bil­ity for suc­cumb to the per­verse lib­eral social & finan­cial incen­tives soci­ety as a whole are pay­ing the price allow with them for that choice.

It’s ironic the Supreme Court is decid­ing whether to allow states the choice of redefin­ing mar­riage and absorb­ing the cul­tural costs that it will entail to chil­dren who will not have a father or mother or COM­PEL the entire nation to fol­low the social par­a­digm of sin­gle sex par­ent­ing at the same time when while the entire nation and world are see­ing the results of this cul­tural meme.

The jus­tices and the peo­ple have a front role seat to the vivid warn­ing pro­vided by Bal­ti­more of the results of such a decision

It’s a les­son I hope the Supreme Court pays heed to.

Let me close with this thought:

While cul­tures, tech­nol­ogy, tastes as to what is socially accept­able might change (for exam­ple a cen­tury ago the elites of our land were big into the idea of eugen­ics until a fel­low with a Char­lie Chap­lin mus­tache took the idea to its log­i­cal con­clu­sion with hor­ri­fy­ing results) they don’t trump the real­i­ties of human nature and the real­ity is this:

When you cre­ate a cul­ture that dis­re­gards the vital and unique role of the intact father & mother to rais­ing of chil­dren and instead pro­vide incen­tives, both legally and cul­tur­ally, to pro­mote alter­na­tives as equal and as healthy for the sake of a groups self-​esteem you are sow­ing the seeds of dis­as­ter that will bear fruit within the life­times of those fool­ishly pro­mot­ing the exer­cise in nar­cis­sism that is gay marriage.

You have been warned.

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

Luke 21:33

Yesterday while most of the country was watching Baltimore the Supreme Court heard arguments to decide if the definition of marriage that had endured throughout human history was to be tossed out and redefined in a way that not only the founding fathers but most americans of a mere generation ago, would not have imagined.

Given that gay marriage only became legal in American in 2004 by a 4-3 vote in the most liberal state Supreme Court in the land (Massachusetts) and the unwillingness of Governor Mitt Romney to push back in the slightest against this idiocy,  the fact that the Supreme Court is expected to uphold the narcissistic idea that marrying within one’s own sex is a basic constitutional right is nothing short of remarkable (constant cheerleading by the entertainment/media complex not withstanding).

What’s even more remarkable in my eyes however is that events in Baltimore that have caused many eyes that would normally be on the court to be elsewhere have given the justices who will be ruling on gay marriage a look at the future they are preparing to create.

The riots give the answer to the question:  What do you get when you have a culture when the presence of both a father and mother is considered unimportant in the rearing of children?  The experience of the Black family over the last five decades  answers this question.

Consider:  At the same time that civil rights laws were freeing black Americans from centuries of legal restraints by narcissists redefining marriage (sound familiar) and humanity itself to suit their cultural desires, an event that should have been the prelude for black America to jump into a golden age,  two other forces from liberal America,  one cultural & one political,  arose that would have a catastrophic effect on the black family which had so nobly fought for the rights that were finally being acknowledged.

First came the sexual revolution that not only shattered the concept of sex within marriage as the proper moral norm but brought with it the contraceptive culture giving the illusion of divorcing sex from children (with abortion as the final card to play in an emergency).

Nearly simultaneously came the Great Society which among other things gave the poor, in the form of government cash assistance,  an incentive to abandon the family unit for single motherhood without a husband and father in the house.

This combination of incentives coming at this time of transition for the black family was the key ingredient in its destruction.  Single parent households,  abortion and absent fathers increased while marriage decreased.

The result, two generations later the norm within the black community is now the absence of an intact family with a father & mother present in the home and the further absence of a grandfather to reinforce fatherly values if accident or circumstance causes the fathers loss.

Normally the disastrous results of this, while apparent daily in the black community is invisible to society as a whole (with the exception of judges, police and social workers) but the crisis in Baltimore is giving the general population and the world a vivid view of this new cultural paradigm.  And the best illustration of this view came from an angry mother of a rioting son.

 Yesterday all over facebook and social media people cheered (with some liberal exceptions) the video of a black mother disciplining her son for taking part in riots.  In the midst of the cheering nobody seemed to ask the obvious question:

 Why was there only one mother of a rioter taking action?  Where were the rest of the mothers & fathers?

Every single one of those rioters had a mother, yet we only saw one taking actions.  Every single one of those rioters had a father, yet we didn’t see a single image of a father pulling a rioter of the street.

I submit and suggest that if black America had that same ratio of intact families with fathers and mothers in the home today as it did in the mid 50’s  the number of teens rioting would have been tiny as  their concern over the reaction of an angry father would have overridden the peer pressure to raid a mall, set fires or destroy & loot stores.

I further suggest that events in Baltimore vividly illustrate what happens to a culture when you have generations of people who do not have the traditional nuclear family to reinforce values, when the value of a male and female role models is discounted and when society or a subset of it rejects it as the desired norm.

Now in the end  the final responsibility for the actions of the rioters, the inaction of their parents, and their failure to said parents to imbue either the values or the fear that would preclude violent acts by their progeny,  lies with them.

But while theirs is the responsibility for succumb to the perverse liberal social & financial incentives society as a whole are paying the price allow with them for that choice.

It’s ironic the Supreme Court is deciding whether to allow states the choice of redefining marriage and absorbing the cultural costs that it will entail to children who will not have a father or mother or COMPEL the entire nation to follow the social paradigm of single sex parenting at the same time when while the entire nation and world are seeing the results of this cultural meme.

The justices and the people have a front role seat to the vivid warning provided by Baltimore of the results of such a decision

It’s a lesson I hope the Supreme Court pays heed to.

Let me close with this thought:

While cultures, technology, tastes as to what is socially acceptable might change (for example a century ago the elites of our land were big into the idea of eugenics until a fellow with a Charlie Chaplin mustache took the idea to its logical conclusion with horrifying results)  they don’t trump the realities of human nature and the reality is this:

When you create a culture that disregards the vital and unique role of the intact father & mother to raising of children and instead provide incentives,  both legally and culturally, to promote alternatives as equal and as healthy for the sake of a groups self-esteem  you are sowing the seeds of disaster that will bear fruit within the lifetimes of those foolishly promoting the exercise in narcissism that is gay marriage.

You have been warned.
