Every once in a while, we here at VG receive a “gift” in the form of crazy happenings that we can blog about, and as of late those “gifts” have been plentiful! From James Woods blaming Al Sharpton for the execution style murder of two police officers in New York City almost a week ago on Saturday December 20th, to the #MillionsMarchNYC protestors shutting down the Brooklyn Bridge over the death of Eric Garner we have been awash in interesting topics. This one though, took the cake for me. Perhaps it is because I was spending Christmas with my mother in law, a devout German Catholic who has never read a book in which the Virgin Mary has not been a central figure, perhaps it was because I myself am an ethnic Catholic who never felt comfortable with other religions. Perhaps it is simply because, dear reader, you just cannot make this sh*t up.

FEMEN “protestor” who attempted to kidnap the baby Jesus from the Vatican City Nativity Scene on Christmas

It seems that on Christmas Day a member of the topless “feminist” group known as FEMEN showed up in Vatican City to kidnap the baby Jesus from the Vatican’s nativity scene as part of their “Massacre of the Innocents” campaign to promote awareness of what they say is the church’s antiquated stance on women’s bodies and reproductive rights. They hoped to raise the global awareness of organized religion’s focus on controlling women’s bodies by kidnapping baby Jesus’ from nativity scenes the world over.

“The maniacal desire to control women’s fertility is a common trait of many religions, National Socialism, nationalism and other antediluvian, anti-humanist ideologies. Abortion is sacred,” the group says on its site.

Abortion is sacred?! I am pretty sure that I did not miss the day of religion class where they taught that the outright slaying of a pre-born human being in the womb is a sacred right of women. In fact, I am also fairly sure that I remember debating the topic of abortion in ethics classes later in my studies and having it turn out that most of the girls in my school were in fact against the idea of murdering unborn babies in general.

My feelings on the topic are strong because I know smart, wonderful women who have felt that they had no other choice for whatever reason, and chose abortion. I know the hell that they went through, and still go through to this day, mentally and spiritually so I do not approach this topic with a light heart. I extend my deepest sympathy to any woman who feels that she must make the choice to abort-for whatever reason. What I find insufferable is the “feminists” saying that a murder of an innocent is sacred.

Are we no better than the ancients who purposely murdered women and children in the name of ritual sacrifice? I choose to believe that we are, that women are smarter than these idiotic lunatics who claim to represent women’s interests and strive for our true equality. I only give them credit for their dramatic flair. It takes guts to show up topless in St. Peter’s Square, lifting your black micro mini and pretending to shove a crucifix where the sun don’t shine to make a point about women’s issues. Unfortunately, I just don’t think it does much to truly advance the state of women around the world.

That credit goes to women like Condoleeza Rice, former Secretary of Defense, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai who survived being shot in the head by the Taliban, and Janet Wolfenbarger who is only the second four star general who happens to be a woman in the U.S. Air Force. To these ladies, I say we have come a long way baby!

Eric Garner’s Daughter Tweets Address of NYPD Officer

Eric Garner’s daughter, Erica

To celebrate Christmas one of Eric Garner’s children, his daughter Erica Garner, tweeted the address of NYPD officer, Justin D’Amico, one of the officer’s present when her father died, and the addresses of five possible relatives.

In the tweet, she says, “another officer that helped killed [sic] my dad,” and urges her 5,000-plus Twitter followers to visit the webpage. According to the New York Post, the webpage was viewed about 500 times before the tweet was later deleted.

The disgusting tweet came less than a week after a crazed gunman fatally shot NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu following a post on his Instagram informing his followers that he planned to kill two police officers in response to the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. It also comes during a time when police departments across the United States are on high alert because of dozens of copy-cat threats.

Obama Is Santa For Dictators

by Nina Bookout on December 26, 2014

Yesterday, President Obama visited with our military while on vacation in Hawaii. Josh Lederman of ABC News elaborates:

President Barack Obama marked the end of more than a decade of combat in Afghanistan by paying tribute to America’s military, telling troops on Christmas Day that their sacrifices have allowed for a more peaceful, prosperous world to emerge out of the ashes of 9/11.

At an oceanfront Marine Corps base in Hawaii, Obama told troops that while tough challenges remain for the U.S. military in hotspots like Iraq and West Africa, the world as a whole is better off because American troops put country first and served with distinction. He said Americans and their president could not be more thankful.

The President is indeed correct that tough challenges are in place and ahead for our men and women in the military. However, it is very disingenuous of this President to look at our world and tell us that it is more peaceful than it was prior to 9/11. We can’t ignore the fact that Iraq and West Africa are not the only hotspots that our military faces on the world stage. And we certainly cannot ignore the fact that President Obama seems to be more interested in playing Santa to dictators rather than protecting American interests here and abroad.  [click to continue…]

Early in November, as you may recall, scientists achieved an incredible feat by landing a space probe on a comet. One of the scientists working on the Rosetta Project was Dr. Matt Taylor, whom you will also recall sported some major tattoos and a really awesome Hawaiian-style shirt, as seen in this BBC video:

However, it was not his achievement that drew the attention of some feminists. It was The Shirt, which some angry feminists labeled as “sexist.” Our Victory Girls Nina and Cassy wrote about the so-called #ShirtStorm after the rage of the feminists caused Dr. Taylor to publicly apologize.

Shortly after this kerfuffle exploded, various bloggers discovered the source of The Shirt. It came from a small business called Alohaland, which is located in California and run by its proprietor, Judi. I was curious and investigated her website, and there I found a plethora of some of the most vibrant, colorful, and gloriously politically incorrect Hawaiian shirts I have ever seen.

Then The Husband got a gander at the shirts. Now, my husband has a commercial illustration and graphic design studio and lives almost daily in Hawaiian shirts during warm weather. It’s his schtick, his “man-style,” as he puts it, and, considering his business, they suit him well. [click to continue…]

A Feminist’s Take on Christmas: God Raped Mary

I am not a person that despises labels and titles. I find comfort in the way I have chosen to label myself. I am a patriotic American. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a good friend. I am a conservative. I am also a Christian. My faith journey started when […]
