Anita Sarkeesian is a time traveler

I was looking at some 0ld punk rock albums from the 1980’s and 90’s and I stumbled upon this Black Flag album from 1990, My War.

The puppet’s head bears an uncanny resemblance to video game critic and super feminist Anita Sarkeesian.

Anita Sarkeesian

What is Anita Sarkeesian doing on an album cover from 1990?  This was long before she is the person she is today, yet there she is in puppet form.

Normally I would attribute something like this to wizardly or some form of Satan inspired black magic, but that doesn’t seem the case. That’s not the gut feeling I’m getting. Black Flag was a punk rock band, not a death metal band, and as such, not influenced by the power of Satan.


Scientifically, this leads me to only one conclusion: Anita Sarkeesian is a time traveler. Occam’s razor says so.

Why would Anita Sarkeesian even want to travel back in time to the late 1980’s or 1990s and have Black Flag put her on the cover of an album?

Maybe she didn’t.

She might have gone back in time on a mission for Feminist Frequency, the organization she runs and had some sort of unplanned interaction with the members of Black Flag. This album cover could be a result of that.

The respect and admiration I felt for Anita Sarkeesian were already pretty high and that was before I realized she’s a time traveler. It’s now off the charts.

The ability to travel to the past and then the future could explain why she is always right about the problems with video games and the toxic masculinity they advance. She’s seen firsthand the results of allowing men to play the video games they want to play without some type of feminist oversight.

I know if you’re reading this, you’ve probably already donated money to Feminist Frequency. Considering how expensive time travel must be, I would encourage you to donate even more money to Feminist Frequency.

Christmas Satanic symbol causes outrage

The city of Boca Raton is allowing religious groups to erect displays promoting their chosen religion at Sanborn Square, an area owned by the city.  Included in the displays is a Satanic symbol. It honors Satan, former angel and enemy number one in the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. It turns out, some people in Boca Raton have a problem with the Satanic symbol displayed near a Christmas nativity scene.

The pentagram display was put up by Preston Smith. He obtained a permit to erect the display. The pentagram display is located near a nativity scene, depicting the birth of Jesus Christ. Along with the pentagram is a banner provided by the Freedom from Religion Foundation.

The banner reads:

At this season of the Winter Solstice, we celebrate the Birth of the Unconquered Sun — the TRUE reason for the season. As Americans, let us also honor the birth of our Bill of Rights, which reminds us there can be no freedom OF religion, without freedom FROM religion in government.

Merry Christmas!

The first night the pentagram and accompanying banner were erected in Sanborn Square, someone armed with spray paint vandalized them. How surprising that someone or someones in Florida spray painted over a banner that promoted the Bill of Rights, one of our most treasured documents. I wonder, what offended them more: the Satanic symbol or the Bill of Rights?

The mayor of Boca Raton and area clergy are pretty upset over the Satanic display. Pastor Andrew Sherman with the Boca Raton Interfaith Clergy Association said:

They’re using a religious symbol and an inflammatory one at that, a Satanic symbol, to make their point. And we felt it was hypocritical and shameful.

Hypocritical and shameful? How so?

When asked about the vandalism, Pastor Sherman had this to say:

This was deliberately provocative and I’m not surprised it provoked a reaction even though I completely reject that reaction.

Sure. I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if the good Pastor Sherman had spray paint stains on his index fingers.

Preston Smith believes the act of vandalism is a hate crime. He issued the following statement:

I have filed a police report with BRPD for this hate crime, which only proves that religion and government don’t mix.  The Freedom From Religion Foundation is offering a monetary reward for info leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s).  FFRF is also sending replacement banners via overnight delivery.  Freethinkers have been targeted for thousands of years by religious folks, although counter-viewpoints are becoming more visible as this nation’s demographics shift away from organized religion.  We will not be silenced by the those who fear freedom of speech in America.  We will not be persecuted by religious zealots intolerant of diverse viewpoints.  We are not going away, but are instead ready to make this an annual tradition.  The Constitution protects the minority from the tyranny of the majority.  The mayor and city council should immediately take notice — public parks must be free from all ancient myths and superstitions in order to preserve the well-being of the community at large.

I agree with Preston Smith. It was a hate crime.

Our Founding Fathers might have been slave-owning assholes, but they were correct when it came to the First Amendment. I love a good nativity scene, but it has no place on taxpayer-funded property. If you’re going to allow religious displays on public land, you’re going to have to allow all religious displays.
