For my eyes have see the gory
Of the coming of the horde,
It is trampling out in scrimmage
Where a wealth of crass are whored,
It hath loosed the f’d up frightening
Of a republic’s faithlessness reward,
Goose-steps keep keeping on…

Gory, gory hallelujah! Boo-wa-ha-ha!

Ok, so this one could have as easily been titled ‘stupidity hymn of the republic’ because the facts are, where the USA has devolved to is at least as stupid as it is obscene. As an American patriot in principle, that is one faithful to the constitutional rights, principles and ideals we should have strengthened rather than allow to be discarded by the Trumanite network (created by the National Security Act of 1947), I see it as our duty to call a spade a spade in the tradition of Thomas Paine, a man who did not mince his words:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime”

I have not (yet) come across a better quote to describe what is known as the ‘political correctness’ underlying the American body politic, where one must conceal the reality; for instance a closet homosexual, Senator Lindsey Graham, whose Evangelical base condemns homosexuality per se. This is a case of interest in light of a simple question: What is the greater abomination, Senator Graham’s sexual orientation in the eyes of his hard right constituency, or his record of murderous votes bought in support of an empire, amounting to payola by corporate multinationals? Or is the greater abomination Senator Graham’s concealment of his sexual orientation, going to the point of the Thomas Paine quote and Graham’s representing a base that condemns what he actually is, in his personal life, Jesus stating “You hypocrite!” notwithstanding. I can’t think of a better sobriquet for Lindsey Graham than “political fag” or “male prostitute” but today’s demand for ‘political correctness’ will have none of it. You have to be willing to lie, from the get go, to play ‘up’ in the American game. That Senator Graham’s orientation, and concealment, resembles the two-faced life of, example given, J. Edgar Hoover, any intelligent body politic should have a problem with NOT calling it out. That we don’t should point to what actually is frightening, the fact modern Americans match up rather well with what Thomas Paine had condemned; ‘the moral mischief of mental lying in society.’

If we define a generation as “all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively”, it wasn’t even a generation ago American conservatives were not the pervasive bigots we see today. They were largely both; honest and polite, wherein conversation gays were euphemistically ‘greek’ (without animosity) and lesbians described as ‘never married.’ In pre-Tea Party libertarian Montana, gay and lesbian folk were tolerated across the wide swath of Montana’s conservative community, with little overt hostility. It is worth noting in this pre-bigot (pre-Tea Party) life, libertarianism had been one of a very indigenous self-restraint, where seldom people pushed an agenda in the other’s face.

Jack Kerouac, Alan Ginsberg and William Burroughs are responsible for changing all of that, when what amounts to ‘gay evangelism’ or ‘in your face’ libertine lifestyle pushed the conservatives to an extreme, intolerant right position and the left had become infected with a ‘value’ of ‘tolerance’ where everyone, conservatives included, are expected to ‘tolerate’ what amount to dissolute behaviors in a more traditional lifestyle. This split saw immense amounts of money, one could say obscene amounts of money, pumped into either side of the divide, widening the split and hardening the opposing positions. ‘Liberty’ were never so abused before ‘social issues’ became the political prostitutes’ preferred agenda; where now the epithets of choice in the common parlance are faggot and bigot respectively. These terms are no longer constrained to application towards the truly deserving, and the real tolerance allowing for a discreet lifestyle of choice is a thing of the past.

In fact, if the American republic had gone on to secure its intended secular nature, there would only be civil unions (contract law) and ‘marriage’ would be the sole purview of the concerned individuals in relation to religious institutions entirely fenced out of matters of state, no matter were one straight or the alphabet of LBGTQ (RS_UVWXYZ.)

As this cultural war is exploited by the USA’s military-industrial complex, while American empire had expanded and is pointed to collapse like a 33-1/3 LP recording of Rome played at the speed of 78 RPM (millennials might have to research that metaphor), it’s small wonder the nation itself is become the junkie represented in Burroughs (the opioid epidemic), a collective perversion of American genius, where everyone is either a faggot or bigot, merely depending on which side of the divide the voices are funded from. Meanwhile, there is no peace and there is no actual ‘tolerance’, everyone is caught in a war zone, either the cultural war at home or the battlefields of empire abroad.

Considering this circumstance of ‘liberty run amok’ is not likely to resolve amicably, it is interesting to this author, when observing perfectly intelligent people (one should presume), these people seem either incapable or unwilling to examine the very nature of the reality underpinning their experience. For 2,500 years Plato has defined what we have come to perceive; but in the end ‘objectivity’ has produced no ‘objective’ ability to solve our problems, in fact the 21st century has only seen these problems compounded. Something is seriously wrong. And something is seriously wrong with the fact my own analysis drawing back the curtain, when exposing criminal talent, can be widely read (by this modest blog’s standards) and even admired, but this simple, damning equation cannot seem to get traction:

A: “The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato” -Alfred North Whitehead

B: ”The [Plato’s] doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

C: nouns or millennia destructive process ‘objectifying’ language, projecting individual identity onto pieces of one’s surroundings, or dis-integrating environment; a result of the isolated projection of self or (ego) individuation by Western humanity exclusive of integration to a sentient, aware surrounding, where all environment had been/should be, social.

It’s not often I’d post up a link to Pink News but this is too rich to pass up; with the New York Times and other (typically lying) media all abuzz with Bannon’s “meeting of  the hearts” (perhaps more appropriately known as a ‘bosom buddies’ crush) with Catholic arch-conservative Cardinal Raymond Burke. Let’s dig deeper and get to the ‘bottom’ of what’s really going on. Traced to the original source, the online, hard right, Opus Dei aligned (fascist), Catholic magazine Aleteia:

bannon_burke-jpg-1

“When you recognize someone who has sacrificed in order to remain true to his principles and who is fighting the same kind of battles in the cultural arena, in a different section of the battlefield, I’m not surprised there is a meeting of hearts,” said Benjamin Harnwell, a confidant of Cardinal Burke who arranged the 2014 meeting”

Going to a ‘meeting of the hearts’ concerning ‘battles in the cultural arena’, one must more than simply wonder exactly what this particular ‘battle’ has to do with internal strife concerning one’s sexuality. Why hadn’t Aleteia just ‘come out’ on behalf of Burke, and stated the obvious; Bannon’s recent ‘bosom buddy’, the mandatory-by-theology-homo-hating Burke, has his own serious sexuality issues:

Prior to Alternet deleting my soapbox [blog] some years back, I used post a special edition of this ‘story’ up as a Christmas tradition.

Imagine Bing Crosby crooning “I’m dreaming of a White Christmas…” ’24’ is on TV with the sound off. Don reaches over and places his hand softly on Dick’s knee, chuckles, and says “Did you hear Ben Bonk’s sob story?

Cheney puts his hand over Don’s and gives an affectionate squeeze. “I laughed to tears…” The next day they went quail hunting.

Don Rumsfeld & Dick Cheney’s Dog

You all have heard of the first grade primer ‘Dick and Jane’? Well, as fate would have it, Dick did not grow up to love Jane, because Dick (like Don) matured into a homosexual in denial, or “RRR” (sounds like a Rottweiler growl), one of those closet morality, socially/sexually frustrated and consequently mean people known as a Religious Right Republican.

So, this has to be a adult repressed homosexual ‘dick’, or machismo porn variation, of the ‘Dick and Jane’ story. Consequently, the story of how Don Rumsfeld met his demise, because of Dick Cheney’s dog, is pretty screwed up.

It’s called: Don and ‘dick’

Rumsfeld was visiting ‘big dick’ Cheney at Cheney’s ‘spread’ in Wyoming, Cheney was wishing he could have shot George Bush in the face with his shotgun because the coward George flinched and did not pull the trigger on Iran…

While reminiscing missed opportunities at initiating Armageddon, wishing they could have shot more people in the face, especially more Arabs, and about their longing for certain fascists to be in their lives, past and present, secular and religious.. among other things, Rummy suddenly asked ‘big dick’ why his Rottweiler, “Machismo”, was always locked in his kennel.

Mean people have mean dogs and, Dick explained to Don that “Machismo” had an edge about him, Machismo simply could not be trusted around visitors. Dick went on to explain how he wished it were otherwise and how he wished Machismo could be trusted to obey him and only tear apart people that he did not like, he’d tried dog trainers but they cost him money, too much money, because Machismo took a chuck of flesh out of all of them, every dog trainer he had tried. His insurance premiums had gone sky high, all on account of Machismo.

Rumsfeld: “Why don’t you get a different dog?”

Cheney: “Because I love my Machismo.”

Then Don had an idea.

Rumsfeld: “Hey Dick, there is the Arapaho Indian Reservation right up the road, why don’t you get a Medicine Man to take the edge off your Machismo? I saw on the Discovery Channel the Indians can talk to animals, you know they are all devil worshippers, so maybe there is something to it.”

Dick’s eyes brightened considerably, an amazing thing, as though a light had turned on upstairs, but then his brow furrowed back to normal, as though nobody were home.

Cheney: “That’s the problem. They are all devil worshipers, you know, Indians are sorcerers like the Old Testament forbids be ‘found among us.’”

So Don and Dick discussed that and came up with a solution. If they were not at Dick’s ‘spread’ while the medicine man worked with Dick’s Machismo, the sorcerer would not be found ‘among them’ and it would all be ok in the end, because St Paul had said “All things work together for good” for Christians like Don and Dick. So they sent a Secret Service agent to find a medicine man with an explanation of how Dick would like the edge taken off of his Machismo, and then went quail hunting, so the Indian sorcerer would not be ‘found among them.’

The secret service agent found a medicine man, a Blackfoot married to an Arapaho and living in Wyoming, a typical dumb Indian, who with a look of stunned disbelief, kept asking the agent again and again “What!?” After the agent had identified himself four times and explained Dick Cheney wanted the edge taken off his Machismo eight times, a light filled this Blackfoot Indian’s eyes, this agent was serious, and the devil was right at home.

Indians know when the gods deliver the opportunity of  a lifetime, and this was opportunity at redemption. It had been awhile since the medicine men had been noticed, that is, the now days scarce authentic ones, and the agent had stumbled onto the real McCoy. First and foremost, this Indian believed in the Native law of reciprocity and well knew how it worked, something the Whitemen had not sorted out since Jesus had told them about it two millennia ago: “As you sow, so shall you reap.”

In this Indian’s world view, the opportunity was all about deliverance, and the attending attrition from any consequence, a sort of natural quantum mechanics shamanic death manifest by friendly fire, simply would have to be tolerated, because the medicine men are all about manifesting truth, and this native cultural idea taken together with the dogs name, set out the path to healing Dick’s Machismo: The dog would have to be taught how to enjoy narcissistic sex, instead of biting people.

Initially, the medicine man realized he would have to endure Machismo’s instinct to hump his leg, that was disturbing, but to reach the goal beyond… The Indian told the agent, well, ok, he would do it for ‘dick.’ The agent missed the straight faced Indian humor… and utterly failed his agency’s chartered mandate.

Indians are observational people, primarily, and know the purpose of dog butt sniffing rituals, sort of like when a Blackfoot and Cree spot each other from across a boulevard in downtown Calgary, the hair goes up on both backs and both Indians are thinking to the other “You can sniff my butt” in a historical context, and it is not a friendly thought. The actual butt sniffing between them is purely psychic, preceding any challenge and fight, and the medicine man doctoring Dick’s Machismo would need to circumvent this phenomena to achieve his aims. So sorcery came into play. He collected urine from a bitch in heat, rubbed a little of it on his knee, and bringing more along in a vial, he traveled to heal Dick’s Machismo.

The dog was very happy to see him, no hostility or butt sniffing ritual encountered at all, the Indian told the agent he had to work with the dog alone, brought out a plastic baby rattle wrapped in leather with a few strings with beads, to look convincing, and Dick’s fundamentalist christian body guard was more than happy to leave. Then this Indian began to work with Dick’s Machismo… “Now Machismo, my leg is a good beginning, but we have to show you something, you don’t need my leg or me at all, you can do this all for yourself- just follow her scent to where it feels so right….”

In Blackfoot language we have a word, I don’t know how to spell it in the Whiteman’s language, but it sounds something like oww-woe-tops and it means you are crazy and “everyone knows the Whiteman is crazy” is a Blackfoot proverb proven again and again, example given, Dick Cheney hiring an Indian that hates him, as every Indian should, to tame his Machismo. There is another Blackfoot word I dare not try to pronounce here, but it means “Dog Face.” It is about as bad as Blackfeet language profanity gets, and it is not as tame as it might seem, initially. The term refers to a certain facial expression…

Don and Dick were headed back to Dicks ‘spread’, the agent had called and told them the medicine man had pronounced Dick’s Machismo healed and was leaving, and as fate would have it, the medicine man, and Don and Dick, passed each other on the dirt and gravel country road, the Indian pushing his 1968 Chevy pickup named the “Red Jet” as hard as he could, the worn out 327 V-8 boiling blue smoke into the dust storm he was whipping up behind him, windows down, braids flying, wild eyed panic combined with a maniacal mirth at his crime, co-mingled with prayers to all the gods that he WOULD escape… thinking when he saw Don and Dick “you can sniff my butt” while trying to put on as many miles as he could, as fast as he could, to escape Dick’s ‘spread.’ Don said “God Damn”, Dick in the same moment saying “he must have brought along his whiskey”…

Dick and Don, walking to the kennel, turned a corner bringing Machismo into view in that very moment Machismo was swallowing it, gulping himself down with a certain facial expression… Don had a sudden epiphany, and he exclaimed “Machismo sucks!”, and Dick’s perpetual grimace of hate torqued down to the point it actually broke his primitive semblance of a mind, he pulled his permitted concealed weapon…

The camera pans away to the beautiful red rock cliffs of Wyoming, there was a first shot echoed together with Machismo’s dying yelp, Don shouted “NO!” and the second shot was heard… a pause.. the third shot sounded and America never heard Dick Cheney say “Terror” again.

In the here-after, for all of eternity, Don repeated “Look Dick, look. See Machismo suck!” And for all of eternity Dick shot Machismo and Don, again and again and could not kill them or himself (because they were already dead.)

The Secret Service agent kept his mouth shut about his role in the cause behind the Rumsfeld/Cheney murder/suicide, and no one came after the medicine man who laughed for years, again and again like a child, every time he recalled:

“you can sniff my butt”

HARVEST

Christian civilization is a civilization of inculcated homosexuality .. dark, angry and insecure. It is a civilization in denial. It is a civilization of theologically and culturally practiced misogyny. Raphael’s paradox points to the Christian homosexual’s necessary maintenance of denial (through hypocrisy) to succeed in this environment and how the exception of living true to oneself as an unabashed heterosexual, one might say ‘a pagan’, would require a certain stealth and luck, or at the least, a clever balancing act, to survive. Raphael’s paradox reflects these complications.

At the beginning of this exam, it does well to examine the Western languages’ simplistic gender; masculine, feminine and neuter. In mainstream (Western) culture, these limited ideas largely determine, via peer perception, whether one is straight or gay, ignoring pretty much altogether the nuance of a natural androgyny in our species. And consider the thought; androgyny is not necessarily gay (or for that matter, straight) but is something altogether on its own. But therein lies a fixation in suppressing much that is feminine in most self-identified ‘straight’ males. And in Western culture, many females have hyper-developed male characteristics in a contradiction of demanding ‘equal rights’ to men. Is to become male an authentic avenue to equality for women? And in this matrix where natural androgyny is confused with sexuality, endless self-deceits play out.

In Westerners, misogyny and gynophobia are so intertwined as to be nearly indistinguishable. This stems from confusing natural androgyny with sexuality in a crucible of fear engendered in violence. This is the source of ‘hidden’ or inculcated homosexuality in larger society that is experienced as homophobia in both males and females, where deviancy should be defined as aggressive-anti-social behaviors as opposed to sexual orientation. Wars of aggression bleeding societies foreign and domestic are, by definition, collective anti-social behavior of a suicidal civilization, any and all ethnocentric bias/denial notwithstanding.

From speculations concerning Frederick the Great’s preoccupation with homo-erotica…

Typical German palace ‘garden art’

…to the more certain case of a German general who dropped dead mid-pirouette wearing only a ballerina tutu as documented by William Manchester, Western militarism is thoroughly littered with closet homosexuality. That women are punished within the context of literal rape or the sacking of cities over the course of Western history, points to the misogyny within the gynophobia in Western society.

Contemporary extreme examples of this mentality would be Michele Bachmann married to a man so freaked out at homosexuality, he engages in ‘therapy’ supposedly able to ‘cure’ gays. His attraction to Bachmann is her hyper-masculine aggressiveness or that is to say they are engaged in a psychological homosexual relationship themselves; the physical gender is superficial. Another case of this could be David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell; she is hyper-masculine in her physicality (a West Point body-building queen)

Paula_Broadwell

As well (as do many Western women) often preferring masculine attire..

paula_broadwell2

 ..in a culture where men suppress the feminine elements of a naturally androgynous intelligence and women seek to bolster their masculine traits and appearance to become attractive to the most aggressive males. This is a homosexual under-culture or foundation of Western society that manifests in competitions at every level and glories in conquests. The other side of the coin is, the inherent denial required generates a deep and abiding anger; this is what translates into bigotry and hate. The source of the denial is fear and the fear stems from abhorrence at what any naked self-exam would discover: a hyper-inculcated homosexuality at odds with the one’s own cultural myths.

In Europe and Asia male hierarchy rose to create and maintain civilizations based on essential slavery of those many required to keep a society militarized on a large scale. This model has held, in several incarnations, to the present and has largely overtaken the world. The most aggressive incarnation of this system stems from Europe and is the present global model. Modern Europe is a result of the inter-meshing of two phenomena; a tribal mythology (The Fall) based in gynophobia overtook an empire or, that is to say, when Rome became Christianized.

In the formative period of what has become modern Europe we see this example:

“Do you not know you are each an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil’s gateway: you are the unsealer of that forbidden tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man. On account of your desert – that is death – even the Son of God had to die.” –Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus (d. 255 AD)

And then we have a Christian mob kidnapped the Roman-Greek philosopher (a woman) Hypatia of Alexandria (d. 415 AD)

“and took her to the “Church called Caesareum. They then completely stripped her, and then murdered her with tiles.” Socrates Scholasticus was hence interpreted as saying that, while she was still alive, Hypatia’s flesh was torn off using oyster shells”

After this had happened, when Christianity had finally stamped out the competition throughout the empire, Pope Boniface requested Emperor Phocas neuter the female goddess, formerly peer-consort to the male:

“to order that in the old temple called the Pantheon, after the pagan filth was removed, a church should be made, to the holy virgin Mary and all the martyrs, so that the commemoration of the saints would take place henceforth where not gods but demons were formerly worshipped”

This (preceding) was accomplished in 609. Just shy of 900 years after, Raphael was interred in his crypt at the Pantheon. Meanwhile, the extreme gynophobia which had overtaken the Romans, one could now describe as a cult of the virgin, had only become more entrenched with a (following) Papal Bull kicking witch-hunts into overdrive (noting the ‘both sexes’ is disingenuous, it was primarily women were accused of witchcraft due to ‘The Fall’ and women responsible for all of the evil in this world according to Christian theology in force to this day)

“any persons of both sexes, unmindful of their own salvation and straying from the Catholic Faith, have abandoned themselves to devils, incubi and succubi, and by their incantations, spells, conjurations, and other accursed charms and crafts, enormities and horrid offences, have slain infants yet in the mother’s womb, as also the offspring of cattle, have blasted the produce of the earth, the grapes of the vine, the fruits of the trees, nay, men and women, beasts of burthen, herd-beasts, as well as animals of other kinds, vineyards, orchards, meadows, pasture-land, corn, wheat, and all other cereals; these wretches furthermore afflict and torment men and women, beasts of burthen, herd-beasts, as well as animals of other kinds, with terrible and piteous pains and sore diseases, both internal and external; they hinder men from performing the sexual act and women from conceiving, whence husbands cannot know their wives nor wives receive their husbands; over and above this, they blasphemously renounce that Faith which is theirs by the Sacrament of Baptism, and at the instigation of the Enemy of Mankind they do not shrink from committing and perpetrating the foulest abominations and filthiest excesses to the deadly peril of their own souls, whereby they outrage the Divine Majesty and are a cause of scandal and danger to very many (…) the abominations and enormities in question remain unpunished not without open danger to the souls of many and peril of eternal damnation” -Pope Innocent VIII (decree issued in 1484)

Raphael is about 19 months old when this (preceding) document is entered into force .. by a man (Pope Innocent VIII) who will have a direct bearing on his future. Raphael has been born into a world still making war on pagans, under the guise of prosecuting witchcraft or what the church construes to be the essence of female intelligence or knowledge of ‘sin.’ By this time, closet and suppressed homosexuality has been inculcated in the Christian hierarchy for generations, via inter-generational violence in form of pederasty. Women are simply seen as tools of the devil, except that they are perfect wives who do not question their lot (brood mares) or become cloistered. These are the two safe routes within the male hierarchy. To be a noblewoman is no means to freedom but rather entails a certain privilege to behave in certain respects as a man that is fraught with intrigue and risk. Female or intuitive intelligence is associated with stark evil and villainous. Meanwhile, the men have become heavily homosexual oriented but this must be denied at any cost. Sexual attraction to the female form has been reduced to a metaphor for conquest and become in our modern times (through advertising) the various stages of undress that suggest rape in the sack of cities…

Paul_Jamin_-_Le_Brenn_et_sa_part_de_butin_1893

…where the modern rendering depicts subliminal message of triumph over the feminine principle little different to the historical image .. with women in a constant state of imagined powerlessness demanding surrender to the inevitable:

Fashion-Advertising-Provocative-Understatement

This necrotic circumstance where suppression of the female in an otherwise state of natural androgynous intelligence demands a persistent state of rape, whether literal or metaphor, has been quite consistent over the Christian age; celebrated in a culture born within Rome, from the time of the apostate Roman citizen Saint Paul initiated a misogynist teaching falsely attributed to the historical Jesus, to present.

It follows, when Raphael became a celebrated artist invited to Rome, little was different to the Christian culture of 900 years previous, when the Pantheon was ‘converted’ to the cult of the virgin (women being the ‘untouchable caste’ in the ideal Christian understanding) as well, little difference is to be discovered from the time of Raphael to present; where the Michele Bachmanns and Paula Broadwells of today are little different to a Catherine DeMedici of four centuries past .. psychological males climbing in the hierarchy who would play the games of men’s intrigues at the level of State. These personalities are masculine in actuality, in a mental state of homosexuality with their physical male consorts. And so it is a Michele Bachmann and her ilk will demand a woman bear a rape child in a consistent context of misogynist Christian culture.

The more entrenched one becomes in the hierarchy, the greater degree of (repressed) homosexuality is demanded. If the common citizen is the foot soldier of the culture that sacks cities, the ruling classes produce the generals in competition to demonstrate their greater masculine arts via conquest of the feminine, empowering mass or societal rape. This Christian social phenomena has its exceptions but they remain exactly that, exceptions. Raphael appears to be an exception.

It was the same Pope Innocent VIII who’d issued the papal bull of 1484 concerning witches went on to appoint Tomas Torquemada to head up the Spanish Inquisition. Considering Innocent VIII also made a Cardinal of then 13 years old Giovanni di Lorenzo de Medici who would become Pope Leo X who would become Raphael’s sponsor for most of Raphael’s years in Rome, gives a bit of context to the intrigues, corruption and class prejudices the great painter would be required to negotiate:

“Innocent VIII had two illegitimate children born before he entered the clergy “towards whom his nepotism had been as lavish as it was shameless.” In 1487 he married his elder son Franceschetto Cybo (d. 1519) to Maddalena de’ Medici (1473–1528), the daughter of Lorenzo de’ Medici, who in return obtained the cardinal’s hat for his thirteen-year-old son Giovanni, later Pope Leo X”

In circumstance where women serve as brood mares to insure dynasty, and are otherwise condemned to a class designated as responsible for every ill extant in this world as a matter of theological holding, Raphael was thrust into a subsequent near clone of the preceding arrangement; when he was betrothed to a de Medici Cardinal’s niece at the Cardinal’s insistence.

Unlike Leo X who kept his homosexuality a concealed court intrigue, and unlike Leonardo Da Vinci who was discreet but more or less comfortable with his homosexuality, and unlike Michaelangelo whose homosexuality manifest in perpetually angry personality, Raphael had neither his contemporaries proclivity nor did he suppress his natural androgynous intelligence or confuse this intelligence with sexuality. Indeed, he was a remarkable man in his time and especially in his circumstance.

Raphael painted himself as neither heroic nor macho, not wealthy, and not great; as well he did not portray himself as effeminate. One sees the balance of his natural androgynous intelligence in his demeanor:

Raffaello_Sanzio

Raphael was patently heterosexual in his orientation. He evaded the expectations of his time by keeping a lasting relationship with a baker’s daughter whose “mind was as beautiful as she”

La_donna_velata

By contrast to the living intelligence portrayed in his long time partner (and secret wife, above illustration), his paintings of those women sitting in privilege depict imprisoned personalities with dead countenance somewhat in the style of Da Vinci:

elisabetta_gonzaga_insieme.tif

The de Medici known as Pope Leo X not only narrowly escaped poisoning by his own cardinals, but is from a long line of poisoners bearing the de Medici name. Likely this is what upended Raphael’s life. Had Raphael been the more typical corrupt court favored personality, he’d not have invited deadly offense on two overlapping counts. 1) He dared to marry the woman he actually loved in the course of offending the de Medici family honor in the immediate proximity of three powerful persons of that family name .. a de Medici Pope, a de Medici Duke and a de Medici Cardinal whose niece he was betrothed to as a matter of public record but dared not marry; having secretly married the woman he actually cared for. 2) Raphael daring to marry a baker’s daughter ‘for the beauty of her mind’ or that is to say he did not play by the rules of male hierarchy and held a low born woman to be superior to the wishes of his noble born patron’s family of de Medici name, a second deadly insult.

The inculcated homosexuality of male hierarchy necessary to prop up civilizations, and wars between those civilizations, is irrevocably attached to the consequently created artificial ego of those same civilized cultures. Previous to monotheism’s ‘The Fall’ overtaking what has become modern civilizations, with Christian civilization of modern Europe becoming the most aggressive of these, the preceding civilizations’ militancy based in wars of conquest and male hierarchy, allowed these civilizations’ inherent homosexuality to be in the open. Such was the case with the Greeks of Alexander the Great and the pre-Christian Romans.

Roman_sex

With the advent of Christian civilization and the repression of this (necessary to male hierarchy) homosexuality, aggression increased exponentially. Consequent intra-cultural wars in Christian Europe, contrasted to the previous Roman model, are example prima facie. Where Alexander or the Caesars would allow for self governance of vassal states, changed mentality subsequently saw the culture and laws of conquerors imposed on entire peoples, whether Napoleonic Code on Europe or Western style democracy imposed on Iraq. No differently to the de Medicis were psychologically incapable to refrain from feeling insult at Raphael’s sense of truth to himself, the USA’s ‘exceptionalism’ cannot avoid sense of injury to its’ ego in relation to any challenge of modern empire it denies it exercises so easily; little different to the ease with which modern civilization denies the male hierarchy principles requiring a malignant male narcissism or culturally inculcated homosexuality at its’ core. This reflects in church teaching  where only males can be priests of a church which is “the bride of Christ” or the bride of a man who never defiled himself by lying with a woman.

One doesn’t develop a fever and die after 15 days as a consequence of sex with the woman one loves as purportedly had been the fate of Raphael. Rather one falls ill and dies as a matter of having crossed a noble family in the habit of poisoning people or that is to say insulted the de Medicis’ masculine ego. The script of circumstance is unmistakeable.

When the rise of male hierarchy created a militant mentality or the narcissism necessary to civilization, the resultant homosexuality embedded as a cultural phenomena had been, in the beginning, transitional or optional. Monotheism’s “The Fall” took this development two steps further; with banishing the female principle of intelligence as equal to the male (paganism) and what is more, demonizing the feminine. This paved a sole avenue to a future Roman empire whose philosophical foundation mutated to a malignant-sublimated homosexuality in its entirety. The result is European-based, Christian cultural mentality.

In an ultimate act of irony, a man who never perverted his natural androgynous intelligence, reflected in his art and life, resembling more the pagan of antiquity as opposed to the modern male narcissist, consecrates an original pagan temple against all odds; for Raphael had been interred in the Roman Pantheon. This is Raphael’s paradox.

Bozo’s Handcock U Speech

(A theory of proto-Anglo-Saxon-chauvinism)

Bozo L’Dodo, past Valedictorian, was to deliver the introductory address for this year’s Handcock U commencement and his theme ‘The Inspired Republican Illuminati: Our Anglo-Saxon Heritage’ would secure his standing as the greatest of Handcock U satirists and past Valedictorians

Bozo had chosen this topic to deflect criticism of his not having fulfilled the Handcock U forecast of becoming 43rd President of the United States, because everyone believed the nation would be better off if he had realized this ambition for the school

Bozo was drunk, both in the composition and delivery of his masterwork address, as were the majority students who had been advised this would be the only state in which Bozo’s short oratory could be fully appreciated. Handcock U’s president attended absolutely stoned on his wife’s Prozac, dreading the coming moment

Bozo, teetering only slightly, after-all, he had been dead drunk for the near entirety of his life and was quite enabled of his condition, began:

My beloved brethren (Bozo neglected to remember women were present, the cause of his alimony payments which he had never understood)

Follows here a fanciful exam of the source of our American behaviors and American Republican closet morality- in a historical context of our British cousins and our own America’s Royal ‘Curious George’ Bush. (The school’s president groaned)

Nearly every educated American of our generation had been psychologically nursed as a child on the wisdom of stories about Curious George, a playful, innocent monkey, but lacking the necessary brains to innately recognize or extract himself from dangerous situations. (the school’s liberals had become interested already, going against experience and every instinct)

Fortunately, or so it seemed at the time of our childhood, George was in the nominal charge of the ‘Man in the Yellow Hat’, a benevolent and wise person with great understanding of George’s nature… and yet for all of the Man in the Yellow Hat’s mis-approbation of George’s innate delinquent nature, it cannot be denied that these stories inculcated our thinking with one great flaw. Repeatedly, the Man in the Yellow Hat left George unattended- leading to multiple circumstance enraging the innocent surroundings of our very small world’s neighborhoods. In fact, George is a vandal and the Man in the Yellow Hat is his enabler. Today, we will have a look at the larger historical background of our own George and his Man in the Yellow Hat: Tony Blair

Here in the USA we speak Yank. My own traceable English ancestry migrated from London to Virginia about 1640 and in the meantime that has mixed, I am sure, with people declining Robespierre’s invitation to a party, as well the emptied jails and insane asylums of England, religious fanatics from the continent, Indians, Blacks, Mongols, and I am obviously ‘mongrel.’ But it wasn’t only noble political refugees, criminals, lunatics and fanatics that were culled from the old world, but many Yeomen as well, mixing with the other populations, creating the curious mix of our state today. I suspect that my friends ‘down under’ have a somewhat similar social biography in the world of our Aussie cousins. (the Dean of Humanities began to feel sick at his stomach)

Now what I suspect what we expatriates sometimes experience, though no fault of our own, is a deleterious genetic effect that Europe in general, and England in particular, had sought to eliminate from their ‘families.’ I carry this remarkably deleterious gene myself, and my research on the matter tentatively suggests it cannot be deleted because of perpetual hybridization in our American family, and there has been no pogrom for this gene’s elimination. For research purposes I am naming the effect of this deleterious gene “Proto Anglo-Saxon Chauvinism.” (the school’s Chancellor began to feel faint)

Now again, we all had thought this PASC gene to be largely recessive in our American population, but I think we must consider it may manifest in heretofore un-noticed behavioral traits such as my own present subconscious urge, example given, a suddenly un-suppressed desire to make a comment such as this short Address. I invite the listener to consider my words taken for a particular hand gesture of continental origin. (Bozo held up his hand with a middle finger, men chuckle and women gasp in the audience)

This gesture had been, once upon a time in Anglo-American relations, flung across the Atlantic, in both directions, and had been historically taken for ‘rudery’

Now in our American population, we had thought the PASC gene (and source of this behavior) to be largely benign, excepting in the Republican party where it is concentrated to an unhealthy degree in this political pseudo nobility, the American Tories. Here, it is noticed in the American PASC Republicans who are ashamed of their ‘doodles’, normally which they only ‘yank’ in the dark, and claim they never ‘yank’ out of context. (Senator Larry Craig turns beet red and the Handcock U president puts his face in his hands)

This bears a bit of explanation. Versed a bit in the American experience relating to our Anglo Saxon heritage and the ‘divorce’, there are historical examples of general insults, inevitably intended, with some exceptions, this shouldn’t ever result in fisticuffs, but sometimes has between friends and brothers, with a bit of liberty and license. (the British interest in the audience perked up)

In so far as these  insults go, there was one delivered a couple of centuries and a score years ago in the vicinity of Yorktown, Virginia, a small ditty of British origin, composed by a campfire in the army of His Majesty, adopted by my countrymen, and that is ‘Yankee Doodle.’ I do believe that a close scrutiny of the song by the science of etymology must reveal ‘yank e’ doodle’, the precise original term, is 18th century cockney or equivalent dialect, refering to the manipulation of a peculiar bodily part- hence the terms ‘yank’ and ‘yankee.’ (Stunned silence in the largely American attendees, the few British sniggered)

Probably the context of the Americans adopting the sobriquet was made in the heat of fraternal dispute, proposed example given, ‘and if we can whip you who named us that, what does that say about you?’ (A single drunken whoop from a Texas Cowboy alumnus, the British chuckles were over)

But we all went on to patch things up, and out of purely good and manly sportsmanship, us ‘Yanks’ kept the name and became endeared of it, despite the dangers of embarrassment to our progeny. (The British are suddenly interested again)

There does seem to be a bit of national amnesia concerning the origin of the term, but who hasn’t heard of the New York Yankees? In our modern idiom they would be called the Manhattan Masturbators (rousing cheers from this west coast school’s Oakland Athletics fan base, the British laughing out loud)

At any rate, all of us hybridized American folk have had to learn to get along despite the presence of ‘proto Anglo-Saxon chauvinism’, and so it is just sort of lurking there, a characteristic of our ‘family.’ It must be my own mark of the gene that fails to see any serious impropriety in these remarks, but in fact I am disturbed by Tory and Republican  behaviors, these progenitors of  ‘Yankee’ behavior. (Bozo’s alumni classmates, on this cue, raise a ‘Students for a Democratic Society’ banner, the British delegation is split)

Now, I am not privy to any modern research concerning the deleterious PASC gene in the old world and whether the efforts to eliminate it were entirely successful, and I am not familiar with the norms of  behavior there, but I would caution my Royal Old World cousins not to breed too closely, if this is what was intimated when Mr Mitterand noted Maggie Thatcher had “the eyes of Caligula.” (San Francisco’s British consular delegation walks out)

Before I am subject to medieval justice and suffer the fate of Guy Fawkes, consider this bit of oratory in the tradition of Punch & Judy and might not intemperate replies from a particular quarter make the case that these beloved characters (whom Americans might well embrace) are expatriates as well. (The British having left, no one understood this line)

Well, here, plainly stated, is an American polled by pundits, strongly suspecting Curious George Bush is an Anglophile (does he truly love Tony Blair?) and I cannot help but infer that the whole world has noticed and is prepared to conclude the Americans cannot help but ‘yank’ another’s ‘doodle’ when they should better keep their hands to themselves. (drunken male crowd roars, outraged women are leaving in droves)

But consider first the primary party responsible for our ‘Yankee’ makeup, and please, only then consider our character. (drunk Log Cabin Republicans have been shouting Hallelujah Brother!!)

And I beg my Anglo cousins, whether Proto Anglo Saxon Chauvinism survives in Merry Old England or not, do bring Curious George Bush home to be Tony Blair’s ‘retirement’ butler, and ‘We the People’ will happily keep our sobriquet ‘Yank’, dubiously renewed in the eyes of your American cousin by our Commander in Chief in concert with your own, whom in tandum have, whilst whistling our glorious tune, Yanked their Doodles out of context worldwide! (Wild cheering, standing ovation)

And thanks for NOTHING England!!” (Bozo ends in Richard Nixon’s famous pose while shouting the Handcock U ‘Fighting Chicken’ sport slogan ‘Cock a Doodle Do!!’ pelvic thrusting with raised middle fingers rather than victory signs)

Commencement did not proceed beyond Bozo’s speech because the ‘Fighting Chicken’ male student body rioted, erupted from the hall and took the occasion to tear down the school goal posts. Women who hadn’t the sense to leave earlier were raped. Handcock U’s president resigned and the school Chancellor committed suicide. Diplomas were put in the mail. Bozo’s fame grew…
