Crushing the Burmese Junta with Panties!


Just when you think you have safely surfed the latest tsunami of pacifascist bullshit, here comes another giant wave: Panties for Peace CAMPAIGN | Panties for Peace - Canada

What can panties do for peace in Burma?

The Panties for Peace campaign plays on the regime leaders' superstitious fear that contact with a woman's underpants will rob them of their power. Women around the world are asked to post their panties to local Burmese embassies in a bid to strip the regime of its power and bring an end to its gross violations of human rights, especially those committed against Burma's women.

Now this is not your standard variety of homegrown American pacifascist crapola, it is the much more stinky Canadian pacifascist crapola. In either case, we can assume that -- regardless of how they feel about panties -- the regime is not exactly shaking in their boots when the mail arrives. After all, they are real fascists and can always order their slaves to open the mail.

Let's review:

On the one hand you have a totalitarian regime with all the guns and ammo hard at work every day making sure their people keep on dying in increasing numbers and utterly impervious to any criticism from the outside world. Check.

On the other hand you have a group self-described as:

The Panties for Peace campaign in Quebec and across Canada is led by a coalition of feminist and civil society organizations* coordinated by the Montreal-based Federation des Femmes du Quebec (Quebec Women’s Federation) and the Rights & Democracy Student Network.
We're talking hard-core pacifascist intellectual insanity here folks. We're talking cutting-edge drivel and blather. We are also talking about some people with serious hygiene and sanitary issues if we assume that the panties to be posted will be worn but not washed.

"Previously-worn Panties" for sale in a Tokyo shop. An untapped protest resource all packed up for easy mailing.

There's a scam run mostly out of Japan that peddles Japanese School Girl panties to perverts via the post. This is pretty much the same thing except that the pacifascists of Canada propose to just give their panties away.

They do so in the belief that "The Panties for Peace campaign plays on the regime leaders' superstitious fear that contact with a woman's underpants will rob them of their power."

If ever there was a "campaign" that underscored more clearly the shrieking superstitions of the pacifascist left I can't think of one. Here we see the magical thinking of the Church of Talk illuminated for all to see. I guess I could think of some style of full-metal jacketed Kevlar panties that could stop the bullets of the Burmese junta, but I'm betting they aren't owned by any Canadian feminists or "civil society" organizations. Neither do they own any of those spiffy magic metal bracelets worn by Wonder Woman. No her invisible glass plane that could be flown in to evacuate the slaves of Burma.

It's all just empty symbols for people with this mindset. It always has been.

During my foray with radical politics in the 1960s one of the best things that could happen to a "leader" in those days was an encounter with the police that got you a knock on the head and some blood on your shirt. You could then, after making bail, shuffle back to the current demonstration du jour and wave your bloody shirt. This inevitably got you cheers and got you laid. It changed nothing but it looked good.

Here we see a post-post-modern variation of the same thing only this time it's the waving of the bloody panties. Disgusting to be sure, but without I think the power to save one life in Burma.

Stupid, disgusting, and futile. In every way the perfect gesture for the colonized minds of the Canadian pacifascists.

You know that this strategy originated in a between-the-stacks pick up attempt at some indy book stall:

"No, Starla, really! Those little Burmese guys freak if they see even a glimpse of pink silk. Trust me on this! I've never been this... honest with you, but you have no idea what the mere thought of your panties do to me, and I'm a mostly - straight male.

Take 'em off! We can buy a FedEx envelope at WholeFoods and ship them to the consulate in San Francisco today. Then we can post about it on CraigsList."

Interesting. The Nobel Peace Prize usually goes to a big pantywaist, but this time it may go to a big waste of panties.

From the Panties for Peace website:

"Burma’s women have endured rape and other forms of systematic sexual violence employed by the military to enforce its control over the country’s ethnic minorities."

If the military leaders are so unmanned by any contact with women's panties, how do they manage to commit rape and sexual violence?

You miss the allusions and word play- to Greeks panties means everything. But seriously folks, I think this goes a long way to explaining why French Canadians are a dying race. It's too bad. They had an incredible history back in the days of the fur trade, and until the "Quiet Revolution" of the '60's did away with the influence of the Church Quebecers showed promise of a great future. Their fate is a perfect example of the cultural suicide to which leftist doctrine always leads.

I find it surprising and a little disturbing that this Moonbattery erupted in Canada. This country used to lead the world in Moonbattery, and now here comes some second-rate also-ran, stealing a perfectly stupid idea right from under our noses! Why, I oughta...

I think Gerard is approaching this issue logically. But logic does not uniformly apply to human behavior. People are fundamentally irrational and Gerard's faith is logic is therefore flawed.

The panty-propagandists have successfully gotten their issue onto Gerard's web site, so maybe that's enough of a victory for them. If the response to their campaign is sanctions or sending in troops, they will have successfully tipped over one of the first dominoes.

Send them your bras to show your support!

Send them your hankies for when they shed their tears.

Send them your gloves to lend them a hand.

Send them your suspenders for what they do to belief.

I'm with Cynyr. Back in the glory days, there was no place on the planet with a higher moonbat creativity index than our own U S of A. We're losing our touch, people. Imagine letting Canada trump us; what will be next, Portugal?

Everyone turn off the classical music, put down those history books and turn away from your meat and potato plate. Take your kids out of private school and trade your Chevy Suburban for a Prius.

There is no time to lose. We must again be the stoned, the smug, the totally delusional! Obama's election depends upon it!

There are many people who never grow up because they lived an easy life since childhood. Who would disagree that it is far more comfortable to remain in a dreamlike fantasy world of childhood if doing that is possible? For most of the people raised in the immense bounty of the free western world - it IS possible to stay a child forever. It's just wonderful! You can just dream all day long and never worry about anything at all. You don't have to work hardly at all, you'll never be hungry, you'll always be warm, always have a place to stay ... and a TV to watch. Childish fantasies seem to be becoming more and more prevalent these days to the point that they're being confused with reality and even debated in politics. So let's all sit down together on the gathering rug and talk to these Burma junta thugs to 'figure them out'. Certainly they'll see things in the same childish way as the rest of us and change their minds? ....

Folks, we're in much bigger trouble than a few nitwits sending panties to Burma if a LOT more of us don't grow up to the fact that there are far more thugs out there and ones who don't have any intention of oppressing and killing Burmese people at all; they want to oppress and kill US! And we, the people of the free world, are the only ones in a position to actually help the oppressed people in Burma or anywhere else on this planet. So children, what happens to the people of Burma or Zimbabwe or North Korea or Afghanistan or Mexico or yada .. if we suddenly weren't around anymore?
Think about that the next time you hear about nuke parts being smuggled into Syria or al Qaida cells arrested in Chicago.

Why is the thought of women like the Code Pinko's sending their big soiled granny panties so disturbing? ;)

Posted by: William Teach at June 3, 2008 3:35 PM

Can we be honest here? This doesn't stand a chance because the maximum number of panties this 'type' owns is often one.

It occurs to me that reminding the Junta that they haven't raped a village of school girls in a while by sending them panties is the best of possible ideas.
