Why Do Adults Believe In Fairy Tales?

What do the following all have in common:

Global warming.

The Boston Marathon terrorist bombing.

The Sandy Hook shooting.

An epidemic of rape and sexual assault on college campuses.

The legitimacy of aka Obama’s birth certificate and presidency.

The solvency of the US economy and the authority of the Federal Reserve.

The theory of evolution.

Answer: they are all fairy tales. Fairy tales concocted by elements of our own government and perpetuated with the full cooperation of mainstream media.

There is no global warming. If anything, we have a mild case of global cooling.

There was no terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon.

There was no school shooting at Sandy Hook.

There is no epidemic of rape on college campuses.

Aka Obama’s birth certificate is a proven fraud and he has no legitimacy to the office he holds.

The US economy is tanking by the minute and the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal, nor holds any reserves, does not have the authority to print currency.

The theory of evolution is just that – a theory. There is no evidence to support it, and if it really were true, we would have a fossil record showing distinct evolutionary changes from one species to the next. Such a fossil record does not exist.

And yet, if you stopped 100 random Americans on the street and asked them about the above topics, I’m willing to bet that over 95% of them would say that they believe the official stories regarding these same topics. Why is that?

Why do adults believe in lies, false evidence, and fairy tales?

I have several theories. The first is the power of criticism. It’s said that the number one fear most people have is the fear of public speaking. What that fear really indicates is a fear of public criticism. A fear of being laughed at, particularly on a public stage. Today we are told that anything outside of the “official” story on any topic is delusional thinking. Those who dare to question the official story, as presented by the government and mainstream media, are labeled “conspiracy theorists.”

The term “conspiracy theory” seems to have sprung into being just after the JFK assassination in order to label anyone who questioned the official narrative of that event. Today, there are very few thinking Americans who believe in the “lone gunman” explanation of JFK’s murder. The only ones who do believe in the “lone gunman” theory are those who have never taken the time to study any of the evidence.

Thus, fear of ridicule, of being labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” seems to be at the root of why most Americans believe in fairy tales and lies. They either know the truth, but deny it, or they simply refuse to look at available evidence, because their fear of being criticized is stronger than their desire to embrace reality.

I believe another reason why people choose to believe in fairy tales and lies, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, is because it provides them with an excuse for cowardice. Think about it. If you choose to deny reality, your life is simple. You can go through life eating bad food, watching bed television, and believing everything the mainstream media tells you. Plus you save a ton of time by not educating yourself.

On the other hand, if you choose to learn the truth about the world, and suddenly come face-to-face with the enormous level of deceit, treachery and evil that such a study reveals, now you have a responsibility to do something about it. You can’t just bury your head in the sand. You can’t pretend any longer that the truth doesn’t exist. You now have a duty, both to God and to country, to act on what you know. And that is just too damn frightening for most Americans.

I think most men fall into the second reason for believing in fairy tales, and most women fall into the first. Being called a coward is one of the most insulting things a man can face. Most men will do anything to avoid it. That’s why they deny reality, to relieve themselves of whatever responsibility the truth would require of them. They no longer have to act on what they know, because they choose not to know it. Out of sight, out of mind.

Women seem to fear criticism more than men. (If you doubt this, ask yourself why most women are overly concerned with fashion and style.) For that reason, they tend to deny reality primarily for fear of seeming out of place and different. You can include in this group the gatekeepers of the right, those conservative talk show hosts and leaders who tow the party line on every topic, and refuse to even allow any discussion of the topics above.

In either case, the result is the same. Adults believing in fairy tales.

US helps in fight between Christians and Muslims in Africa. Read between the lines.

HAGEL ORDERS AIRLIFT FOR CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC

BY LOLITA C. BALDOR – ASSOCIATED PRESS

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered the U.S. military to transport troops from Burundi into the Central African Republic to help quell the latest upsurge in violence there.

Hagel approved the order after speaking with French Minister of Defense Jean-Yves Le Drian Monday night from Afghanistan where he was visiting troops. Le Drian asked the U.S. to help get African troops quickly into the country to prevent the violence there from spreading, said Pentagon spokesman Carl Woog.

There are more than 1,000 French troops in the Central African Republic, where more than 400 people were killed in two days of violence last week between Christians and Muslims. Christian armed fighters oppose the Muslim ex-rebels now in charge of the former French colony… 

Story continues at: Associated Press

Notice the clever wording about who’s fighting who? Armed Christians fighting Muslim “ex-rebels now in charge“?

Hmmm… what might this tortured syntax tell us about who we’re actually supporting? Associated Press seems to be trying to avoid telling us that once again, American military assets are supporting jihadists in the removal of those pesky Christians. Also, they most certainly don’t want to tell us that the jihadists are doing so by the usual methods, like beheading children. In honor of AP’s double-talk, I’m posting Shrek’s Pinocchio at his lying best. ~ TD

ISLAMIC JIHAD IN INDONESIA

jihad_001The price for being a Christian…. in Indonesia…and soon to be  Malaysia (allegedly reported in the local daily news yesterday and today.)

Death for abandoning (lapsing) Muslims and for Christians who preach in Malay.

Indonesia. An Islamic democracy. Is Islam compatible with democracy? These pictures were forwarded to me from a friend who knows a Christian in Indonesia……I cannot reveal too much or I will jeopardize the lives of those that smuggled these pics out. I am running them beneath the fold as they are too graphic to run on the main page. I am running them so the world will know and see that Indonesians are NOT the friend of anyone who is not Muslim.

UPDATE November 20: These pictures are from the late nineties early zeros. There is more background  on them here. They are horrible proof of the torture and oppression Christians suffer at the hands of Muslims in Indonesia. Whether it was yesterday or six years ago, the brutality, the horror is the same. It is happening as we speak. This latest beheading in Indonesia was just  last week here. So while these pictures are from a few years ago, the practice continues apace.

Beheaded girls were Ramadan ‘trophies’ The Australian
November 9 2006

THREE Christian high school girls were beheaded as a Ramadan “trophy” by Indonesian militants who conceived the idea after a visit to Philippines jihadists, a court heard yesterday.

The girls’ severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia’s strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more such attacks.

The note read: “Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head.”

And it continues, just this past September, Indonesian Catholics were put to death by firing squad amid doubts of guilt.

And last September , three Christian girls were beheaded walking home from school here (warning GRAPHIC PICTURES.) September 2005

A terrible crime has been committed in Poso, in Central Sulawasi, Indonesia, which for several years has seen sectarian violence against the Christian minority. Thugs have beheaded 3 Christian 16 year old girls walking back from school. This Voice of America report tells how the anti-Christian violence has attracted Islamic militants to Sulawasi. GRAPHIC PICTURES WARNING  

More here. So what follows are photos from the late 1990s before the US went into Afghanistan and Iraq. Here we have Christian girls beheaded in Indonesia late last year. And here we have more Christian girls beheaded last week with the promise of more. It’s the jihad.

The girls’ severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia’s strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more such attacks.

The note read: “Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head.” More here

These pictures depict the cruel, oppressive existence that non Muslims live under in Islamic countries. No matter how the left twists and squirms to rationalize, this is the ugly truth. And the barbarism continues before the US intervened and after.

There are graphic pictures should you click on the link on the bottom of this post (the link that says “click to continue”), consider yourself warned.

Kerry: Arab countries offered to pay for invasion

secstate

Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.

“With respect to Arab counties offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.”

Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

“In fact, some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost,” Kerry said. “That’s how dedicated they are at this. That’s not in the cards, and nobody’s talking about it, but they’re talking in serious ways about getting this done.

“…they’ll carry that cost” 
Really Mr. Kerry? Does that cost include the lives of our innocent soldiers? Will they carry that cost? Does it include the cost of the victims of global jihad? ~ TD 

Old man McCain isn’t any better than President Lucifer

MCCAIN: SHOUTING ‘ALLAHU AKHBAR!’ SAME AS CHRISTIANS SHOUTING ‘THANK GOD!’

SyriaBombVictim2AP

by BEN SHAPIRO

On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) suggested that Fox News host Brian Kilmeade was Islamaphobic because he said that Syrian opposition groups shouting “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” as rockets hit government offices demonstrated Islamist influence among the opposition.

“I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said. McCain responded: “Would you have a problem with an American or Christians saying ‘thank God? Thank God?’” He added, “That’s what they’re saying. Come on! Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.” McCain provided no evidence to suggest that Syrian opposition groups are moderate, as opposed to the wide swath of evidence suggesting that the opposition is heavily infested with al Qaeda.

In our ever-evolving threat matrix, the common RINO (McCain) seems to be as dangerous and potentially harmful as the Wild Jackass (Obama). ~TD

Hitler Bloomberg: Boston Bombing means Constitution will have to change

Terrorism is extra-procedural violence to effectuate a political end that cannot be achieved via “normal” political methods.

Scholars on terrorism warn us that one of the objectives of terrorists is to incrementally push the target government to adopt increasingly draconian policies and methods — all in the name of national security and ensuring the people’s safety. In this manner, the government more and more becomes dictatorial. The hoped-for result is a populace increasingly unhappy and alienated from the government, and the government’s concomitant loss of legitimacy.

We are seeing that malignant process unfurling before our very eyes.

The 9/11 terrorist attacks led to the Bush administration’s Patriot Act and a never officially-declared state of emergency. Next, while declaring that the War on Terror was over, the Obama regime nevertheless not only continued but exacerbated the Patriot Act with the NDAA — the infamous National Defense Authorization Act that “authorizes” the president and the military to arrest and indefinitely detain U.S. citizens without charge or trial.

Now, right on cue, New York mayor Michael “Hitler” Bloomberg — whose every bone and sinew seem bent on restricting the liberties of New Yorkers, from super-sized soft drinks to breastfeeding to gun control — says our “interpretation” of the United States Constitution “will have to change” after the 4/15 Boston Marathon terrorist bombings, to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks.

Hitler Bloomberg

Jill Colvin r
said during a press conference in Midtown:

“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry. But we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.

Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11.

We have to understand that in the world going forward, we’re going to have more cameras and that kind of stuff. That’s good in some sense, but it’s different from what we are used to.”

Bloomberg then pointed to the gun debate and noted the courts have allowed for increasingly stringent regulations in response to ever-more powerful weapons. “Clearly the  Supreme Court has recognized that you have to have different interpretations of the Second Amendment and what it applies to and reasonable gun laws.”

While urging that our “interpretation” of the Constitution “will have to change,” Bloomberg is insistent that Muslims must be protected. He pontificates: “What we cant do is let the protection get in the way of us enjoying our freedoms. You still want to let people practice their religion, no matter what that religion is. And I think one of the great dangers here is going and categorizing anybody from one religion as a terrorist. That’s not true … That would let the terrorists win. That’s what they want us to do.”

Bloomberg said nothing about a U.S. military training manual putting Christians as the No. 1 “extremist” threat to America.

Yeah, Bloomberg, you really care about religions and religious freedom — but only if the religion is Islam and religious freedom means Muslims’ construction of a mosque at Ground Zero.
