I note that Don Brash, just before the Cuppagate "scandal" broke out, cited the speech in which he offered his personal musings about the cannabis laws as his "biggest mistake" of the 2011 election campaign.

"Magnificent Pandemonium"—Linz vs Muslims and Their Enablers

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2016-08-17 03:12

This is the speech I delivered almost in its entirety in my capacity as special commentator, along with Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy, at Monday night's semi-final in the intra-university Next Generation Debates series at Auckland University. I say "almost in its entirety" because a gaggle of Muslims became very vocal near the end of my speech and demanded, successfully, I be stopped at once for having gone over my allocated time. The point at which I was shut down is noted in the text below.

I, Clinton.
by Olivia Pierson

“Claudius, make me a goddess,” begged the serpentine Livia before exhaling her dying breath into the face of her all-powerful grandson and ancient Rome’s fifth Emperor. Seeking to solicit the genuflection of citizens even from beyond the grave bespoke the extent of her toxic lust for power over the minds of people; a cell-deep craving in her bloodless bosom.

[Note—June 13, 2016, following the killing of 50+ attendees at an Orlando gay nightclub: I hope LGBT moronnials, the Pink Swastika carriers who support the Islamappeasing agenda of Obama and remain silent, as he does, about Islam's routine killing of gays while loudly propounding a totalitarian PC agenda of their own, will be awakened by yesterday's slaughters to the nature of Islam in particular and tyranny in general.]

No, this is not a call to genocide. I leave that to the Islamo-fascist filth who yearn to perpetrate it: “Death to Israel!” “Death to America!” “Death to the Infidel!” and so on.

One doesn't have to be a superstitionist to believe that the end-times are upon us. I'm an elderly atheist, and it's never been clearer to me that Good vs Evil is the defining issue of human existence—since from it existence vs destruction flows—and that Good is now being deluged by a tsunami of Evil ... meaning, mass destruction is nigh (and well-deserved).

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

Intro to 'Total Passion'

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2014-06-14 23:05

Kyrel Zantonavitch's new review on Amazon of my book, 'Total Passion for the Total Height,' prompted me to start re-reading the thing myself. As I made my way through the Introduction I became quite exercised by the trenchant accuracy of my own observations, and motivated to lift myself from the pessimistic funk induced by the horrors of which I write. It occurred to me that I'd never published that Introduction here. Here it is (oh, and of course, buy the book if you want more!):
