Hello everyone. This week I will do my best to respond to "Part Two Second Opinion, by Kelly Scoles, Leslie G. Marshall of Piru, and, once again, Pedro Bazan, of Santa Paula. But, I'm only running on one piston today. Will go until I hear a clunk.

First, Leslie Marshall.
Hello, Leslie. I'm afraid I dove into your letter before I understood the scathing irony and sarcasm with which it was written. At first I misconstrued your second paragraph as a bold advertisement for Planned Parenthood's activities, and I wasted 400 words in defense before I caught on. My profound apologies for jumping the gun, and equally profound kudos for outspoken truth. I will leave my introductory remarks to your letter as they are while striking the rest. Now, I've got to start over!


Hello (again) Leslie Marshall. (original response)
Thanks for the letter. If you are new to the Gazette, be forewarned of my Judeo-Christian bias, what's more my Catholic bias, and just to spice-up the debate, Irish-Catholic bias, in issues of moral concern.

Unlike yourself, I did not enjoy the Fillmore Pride Resource Fair because my Catholic-Christian faith condemns this behavior (despite recent heretical-hierarchical expressions to the contrary.) Whatever scientific knowledge I may have is also repelled by obviously unscientific theories.

More to the point, this celebration should not have taken place without the authority of public opinion being consulted.

I'm afraid you're right that "Anger, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust" can be expressed artistically, and have been over the millennia. By "poignant 'nod' to the seven deadly sins (and Pride being the deadliest) it should be only fair to balance that evil with a "nod" toward triumphant good (the seven theological virtues); Faith, Hope, Charity, Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, and Justice.


Here I begin again, after emerging from my initial dive. I want to caution readers to read your (Leslie's) letter with an ear to sarcasm. I was fooled at first.

Following in the footsteps of pedophile Dr. Alfred Kinsey, and racist-eugenicist Margaret Sanger, PP marches on.


Hello Pedro Bazan.
It's tedious business answering your letters, Pedro, because, like so many leftist Democrats, you always have the facts backwards. Let me demonstrate.

You seem stuck on the latest theme of white supremacy. Tell me, were Hernán Cortés and ‎Francisco Pizarro‎ brown supremacists? Are brown supremacists better than alleged white supremacists? Should Mexico (New Spain) have been left to the Aztecs? Did the Aztecs know things about slavery and mass murder? Think about it.

Next, the institution of slavery. Did Cortés and Pizarro institute slavery on a massive scale? Hmm, I think so. Try to find it in a Howard Zinn book. He (Zinn) described himself as "something of an anarchist, something of a socialist." But slavery was not new to the New World.

And then you bring up "the eugenics movement." Do you know who started this fiendish movement? It was the friend of "Dr." Alfred Kensey (uber racist and pedophile), Margaret Sanger.

And, once again, you bring-up the Ku Klux Klan "and the ways in which it is morally wrong." I have to ask, is there a way in which the KKK was ever morally right? Consult Howard Zinn.

Then, your defense of Critical Race Theory. Pedro - you need to bone-up on American history, and uncritically adopting a halfwit idea like CRT is no way to begin. No one involved in the construction of this back bench "theory" is competent to teach us anything. It is all Leftist propaganda, and the country is thoroughly and quickly rejecting it.

It's good to see you have a sense of humor, Pedro. It flares-up with "That's right ladies and gentlemen, CRT is not a grade school curriculum, rather it's a law school level course that specifically explores how laws are tied to racism, contrary to what a lot of people believe." Pedro, I can assure you, from personal experience, that being "a law school level course" is unworthy of scholastic recognition. The folks who dreamed up this thing are not Solons of higher knowledge - they are just second-string wanabe players for fun and profit.

Lastly, you recommend that Texas legislators expand CRT. I would agree - if that included a close examination of Aztec treatment of surrounding tribes: "Aztec priests, using razor-sharp obsidian blades, sliced open the chests of sacrificial victims and offered their still-beating hearts to the gods. They then tossed the victims' lifeless bodies down the steps of the towering Templo Mayor." "Around 20,000 people were sacrificed a year in the Aztec Empire. Special occasions demanded more blood – when a new temple to Huitzilopochtli was dedicated in 1487, an estimated 80,400 people were sacrificed."

Heck! At this rate they could have run out of people! Thank God for the Conquistadores!

You call for "a study of American racism" before we forget our racist past. But, remembering our Brown Supremacist past, of those bloody old days, maybe it's best to forgive and forget.
