Go read John Zmirak’s scorn-laced send-up of the moronic statements by Sen. Mazie Hirono (PartyOfDeath-HI) about federal a court nominee who belongs to the Knights of Columbus. HERE
Senator Mazie Hirono Is Right. We Must Intern the Knights of Columbus in Camps
Hawaii Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono has sounded the alarm. American freedom is menaced. By whom? A secretive paramilitary organization named for a genocidal invader. One devoted to controlling the bodies of American women — as surely as ISIS does its captured sex slaves.
This group takes orders from a foreign government. It champions causes starkly at odds with the core American liberty: to look at the “mystery of life,” then shrug and say “Whatever!”, as codified in Justice Anthony Kennedy’s landmark decision, Casey v. Planned Parenthood. Just as bad, this organization demeans the human dignity of millions of fabulous Americans, by rejecting their right to a whole new form of marriage. So the same justice noted in Obergefell v. Hodges.
Yet crucial court decisions such as these, and the freedoms our Founders implicitly guaranteed between the lines of what they wrote and said, are now in danger. President Trump has taken the reckless step of mainstreaming this fringe group, the “Knights of Columbus.” What else can we call it when Trump tries to appoint to a U.S. federal court a member of this neo-feudal hate organization, in the person of Brian Buescher. That’s the “knight” whom Trump wants to serve as a federal District Court judge for Nebraska.
Secret Conquistadors Who Want to Control Women’s Bodies
And Senator Hirono has rightly called out this dangerous concession to un-American values. She publicly asked whether Buescher should be confirmed, given his membership in this armed, uniformed group committed to the code of the Conquistadors.
This groups has branches all across the country. It holds secret rituals. It has infiltrated thousands of seemingly innocent places of worship. The Knights even funnel money into educational ventures, skewing the curriculum of places such as the John Paul II Institute, in misogynist, homophobic, and transphobic directions. True, it pours money into the center-left online publication Crux, which seems to harm Catholic causes more than help them. But that is surely a smoke screen. Or are we supposed to think it’s just a mistake?
No, the Knights are too clever for that. They fund their collusion in politics and media with a nationwide insurance business, that rakes in tens of millions from “ordinary” Americans. The group’s controllers teach them to use a special term for other members. They are not just neighbors or fellow citizens. They are “brother knights.” And where does that leave the rest of us? Out in the cold, wondering what the insiders are really up to.
It can’t be anything good.
Read the rest there. Yes, he sustains it through to the end.
