Wanted: A clue

“Columbine is a clean, good place except for those rejects. Most kids didn’t want them there. They were into witchcraft. They were into voodoo dolls. Sure, we teased them. But what do you expect with kids who come to school with weird hairdos and horns on their hats? It’s not just jocks; the whole school’s disgusted with them. They’re a bunch of homos, grabbing each other’s private parts. If you want to get rid of someone, usually you tease ‘em. So the whole school would call them homos, and when they did something sick, we’d tell them, You’re sick and that’s wrong.’ “
Evan Todd, Columbine High School football player wounded during the April 20 shootings, describing how he and his classmates treated killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, in the Dec. 20 issue of Time

False tradition

“Many of the proponents of continuing immigration into the United States at current or increased levels insist that immigrants are good for our economy, since their numbers help to make up for a declining birthrate among the native population and because the more highly educated of them bring skills that are no longer being developed in sufficient quantity in this country… . Advocates of liberal immigration policies remind us that we are a nation of immigrants’ and that it is therefore un-American by which they mean immoral’ to cut off, or even drastically to reduce, the flow of foreigners to this country. We are, and have been for two centuries, they say, the opportunity and hope of the world, and so we should deny ourselves to nobody… .
“It is considered humanitarian’ to fret about population growth and its effects on the natural environment at the global (which is to say, at the abstract) level; but racist,’ xenophobic,’ uncompassionate,’ and un-American’ to worry about the population crisis as it immediately affects the United States, the only place in the world where we are in a position to be able to do anything about it… .
“I will not write that the threat to the environment posed by massive immigration from predominantly Third World countries pales by comparison to the threat to historical American culture, since the two strike me as being about equal in importance. Here again, the obviating oracles of optimism point to what they describe as a long tradition’ of assimilation’ in America by which people from many lands have been acculturated to the wisdom, habits, and tastes of Jefferson, Emerson, Lincoln, and Madonna. This is a heartwarming reading of American history, but like so many heartwarming things it is essentially a false one.”
Chilton Williamson Jr., from an essay in “The Paleoconservatives,” a new book edited by Joseph Scotchie

Gay propaganda’

“The film American Beauty,’ written by Alan Ball and directed by Sam Mendes, has stirred up a lot of buzz since it opened in movie theaters across America… . On the surface, the movie is a tragic comedy about the emptiness of American life, particularly life in the suburbs, and the twisted values that lead to this emptiness. However, underneath the surface lies a beautifully filmed, wonderfully acted, and well-written piece of gay propaganda. It caricatures mainstream community life as ugly and hypocritical, while idealizing gay life as enlightened and singularly healthy… .”Of course reviewers are going to find this movie profound because they have been trained to do so by the climate of gay rage that has, for the last few decades, culturally whipped us into line… . We are supposed to have only 100 percent positive feelings about gay life. If we dare think that anal intercourse is even a little bit unhealthy or unnatural, there must be something really wrong with us.” Gerald Schoenewolf in “When Art Misrepresents Life” in the December Bulletin of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH)
