September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Guardian ColumnisTells BBC She Hopes People Will Die To Help Stop Global Warming 

In what is yet another example of how violent and misanthropic sentiment in the mainstream media is perfectly acceptable in the name of saving the earth, Dr Susan Blackmore has told the BBC that there are “too many people” and that she hopes most of them will die soon for the sake of the planet.

As writer and commentator on human rights issues Brendan O’Neill of Spiked reported in the First Post:

    On 5 November, the upmarket Nightwaves on BBC Radio 3 aired a discussion about overpopulation between Dr Susan Blackmore (a neuroscientist) and Professor John Gray (of the London School of Economics).

    Dr Blackmore said the “fundamental problem” facing the planet today is that “there are too many people“. Professor Gray agreed. Then Dr Blackmore declared: “For the planet’s sake, I hope we have bird flu or some other thing that will reduce the population, because otherwise we’re doomed.”

    The First Post. Malthusian Snobs Pray For Cure To Overpopulation.

Describing Susan Blackmore as a neuroscientist is a very generous way to describe her. Her website’s CV lists her Ph.D. as being parapsychology, not neuroscience. Quite why the BBC thought someone whose specialty is the ‘study’ of the paranormal was qualified to speak on population and global warming is a question they have yet to answer.

So how many people does Dr Blackmore think should die in this hoped-for viral apocalypse?

In her Guardian newspaper column of 2006 she spelled out what she thought constituted an acceptable number of people when she addressed the subject of global warming:

    “In all probability billions of people are going to die in the next few decades . . . The carrying capacity of the earth is possibly a billion or two; it’s certainly far lower than the current plague of humans.

    The Guardian. Survival of the Selfish.

So, five or six billion deaths should do the trick, then.

Dr Blackmore observed that Britain seemed likely to survive the worst of the effects of global warming thanks to its geographical location, but worried that “The world will be awash with eco-refugees, desperate to get to anywhere with land and fresh water. What do we do?”. Clearly, a “plague of humans” from those less-fortunate foreign climes struggling to get into the country is a troubling prospect for Dr Blackmore.

She then lists four approaches to the impending catastrophe. The first is that Britain seal its borders and watches the rest of the world die. “We will have to be steadfast about it” she warns readers. The second option would be to try and save everyone, but she dismisses this by saying that the outcome is likely to be conflict over resources in which everyone would die anyway, so what’s the point? The third option is to put the planet first and “let as many people die as possible”.

The fourth option, which Dr Blackmore seems to prefer, is to try and preserve civilization by helping to save certain selected members of the population (come on – you knew this was what she was leading up to, didn’t you?). In this scenario only certain people could be saved from the apocalypse to inherit the brace new world:

    Finally, we might decide that civilisation itself is worth preserving. In that case we have to work out what to save and which people would be needed in a drastically reduced population – weighing the value of scientists and musicians against that of politicians, for example.

    The Guardian. Survival of the Selfish.

Of course, the necessity of people who can waffle on about parapsychology, global warming and overpopulation in liberal media outlets will presumably be taken as read. Dr Blackmore stated that none of these options were particularly palatable, but we had to face the facts and make tough decisions in the light of global warming. Well quite. Noblesse oblige and all that, Dr Blackmore. Our sympathies on having to make such tough decisions for the rest of us.

This is, of course, a classic example of the hypocrisy of media o...

These people never seem to step up and follow their own beliefs. It's always for others to due, not for them to due.
