18h UTC; FRIDAY, 21 JUNE 2013: As certain specimens of conservative Zealotry and True Belief await the Supreme Court's rulings on the legalities of the so-called "Defence of Marriage Act" and California's Proposition 8 sometime next week, as the current Supreme Court term winds down, you can just imagine the prolefeeders in service thereof pushing as much the notion that the elementary school curriculum and syllabus in particular include courses in Traditional and Proper Gender Role Identity based on "Natural Moral Law," to be reinforced as required by a "Christian" youth movement as turns out modelled on a hybrid of the Nazi-era Hitler Jugend (and its girls' branch, the Bund Deutscher Madel) and the apartheid South African Voortrekkers such ... and, to "defend traditional marriage," essentially condoning policies such as made the Scots village of Gretna Green infamous in its day for underage elopments, especially in the wake of Lord Hardwick's Marriage Act 1754 (applicable only in England and Wales) making the attraction of Gretna Green all the more alluring (especially because under Scots law, a simple "handfasting" ceremony in the presence of two witnesses was considered more than adequate--so long as the intending partners were at least 16 years of age as opposed to the 21 years mandated in England and Wales; what's more, it was not necessary in Scotland to have the ceremony performed in a church milieu, thus making the "anvil marriage," traditionally performed by the local blacksmith, the stuff of legend and scandal).

And you thought the Boy Scouts allowing the overtly gay to join its ranks from January 1st was bad enough for Thy Dear and Lovely Nation and Her National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar By Divine Right and Ordinance: The Girl Guides movement between Land's End and John O'Groats (analogous to Girl Scouting here in the United States) has announced two major revisions in the oath its members take at every troop meeting; the better to attract atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and those from other faith traditions into its ranks. To wit: "To love my God be true to myself and follow my beliefs" and to pledge loyalty "to my the Queen/King and my country the community."

The Holy Text of Nazis everywhere, as in Hitler's Mein Kampf, seems to have attracted the interest of North Korea's "Supreem Leader" Kim Jong Un, if an account by the New Focus International news portal is to be taken as credible; said report claims that "Supreem Leader" handed out copies thereof as birthday favors to senior regime officials back in January, complete with insistence that such be studied "and practical applications be drawn from" the study of Nazi Germany and its socioeconomic rebuilding following German humiliation and defeat in World War I.

Pyongyang, for its part, insists that the defectors behind New Focus International were "human scum" being set up by South Korea and the United States to smear North Korea to commit "treasonous acts upon the Motherland," and demanded a full retraction and Appy Polly Loggy before "serious measures" were considered.

Cable TV maven of "Southern Culinary Heritage," by name of Paula Deen,
is facing what could be a major blow to her career, name and repute rivalled only by her disclosing where she has the old diabeetus: In court filings vis-a-vis a civil-rights complaint filed by workers at one of het two Savannah restaurants, it's claimed that Ms. Deen frequently used the Mark Fuhrman Special (as in "the N-word") in berating kitchen staff and cooks to the point of Creating a Hostile Work Environment (Ms. Deen, for her part, acknowledging that she grew up back when Jim Crow still held sway across the South, and the N-word was seen as perfectly acceptable in conversation, adding that she regrets the power and sting such could have).

The Food Network, which carries Ms. Deen's programmes, is said to be reviewing the situation before considering further measures as may involve cancellation of existing contracts and not airing repeats of past shows of hers.

Finally, for our "AmeriKKKa Should Be More Like China" brethren, BBC Monitoring's daily roundup of Chinese media reportage concludes with this item about the debate therein emerging over a traditional dog-meat eating festival as marks the summer solstice:
Finally, the China Daily says animal activists have been rallying to stop up to 10,000 farm-reared dogs in Yulin, in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, being eaten in a "dog meat-eating festival" on summer solstice today.

Xinhua says the traditional practice in the south of eating dogs is triggering heated debate. Dog eating has been banned in Hong Kong for decades, but no ban exists on the mainland.

In an online poll by the
China Philanthropy Times and the Sohu news portal, most users support the festival as a custom and believe that dog meat is not different to pork and duck meat.

On
Sina news portal, internet users are split over whether caring more for dogs than other livestock is hypocritical or whether eating dogs is "civilised".
Which should call to mind conservative patsies and canards about "defending cultural heritage and identity", so long as such is seen to be in a racist context seeing the so-called "White culture" to be omniprescent and dominant "as of natural right."
