Rebel Buzz: Natalie Portman & PETA; normalizing pedophilia — BUT a good news story, too

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

First up today, actress Natalie Portman. Talk about a traitor to her roots. She's Israeli, born in Jerusalem, and I recently covered her decision to support for the BDS movement by refusing to accept an award in Israel.

And apparently now, she's starring in a PETA ad, that says, among other things:

"For animals, all people are Nazis."

How do you feel about being called a Nazi for eating meat — by an Israeli who, no doubt, is the descendent of Jews killed in the Holocaust?

As you all know, I just returned from Israel with some of the other Rebels. Our last day was spent at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem. These Nazi comparisons have always been absurd, but having so recently been immersed in that experience, I find this comparison to be disgusting and frankly, unforgivable.

So let me tell you, I will not put another dime in this woman's pocket ever again. And I hope you'll join me...

And it seems like we have a running theme today with nasty and ignorant comparisons:

A German medical student delivered a TEDx talk at the University of Wurtzberg in Germany in which she compared pedophilia with someone's "unchangeable sexual orientation, like heterosexuality."

We often express concern over "slippery slopes," and this is exactly why:

You have TEDx speakers, who get millions of views and are considered thought-leaders in their field, telling a crowd that basically pedophilia is perfectly fine.

Before you know it, liberal society will teach and preach that people like you and me, people who believe that this is deviantly and heinously evil, we will be called bigots and "pedophobes." That is where this leads...

I don't want to send you into the weekend with those two depressing stories, so out of my hometown comes a really awesome one.

It's especially wonderful because people love to propagate the stereotype that southern states are racist, but that simply could not be more inaccurate.

A young man named Walter Carr got a job with a moving company called Bellhops. Carr and his mother moved to Alabama from New Orleans after hurricane Katrina destroyed their home.

Unfortunately, the day before his first day on the job with Bellhops, his car bit the dust. Instead of calling off from work, he walked there.

Carr figured the walk would take most of the night so he set out on foot at midnight. Around 4am, after walking 14 miles, police officers stopped him. Now here's where you would expect that faux Alabama racism to sneak into the story, but you'd be wrong.

After hearing Carr's story, the officers took him to breakfast and then drove him to the home where he would be moving boxes and furniture for the Lamey family. When Carr arrived, Jenny Haden Lamey asked Carr if he'd like to rest until the other movers arrived, but Carr insisted he wanted to get working. Throughout the process, the Lamey family learned about Carr's situation.

Lamey shared the story about Carr on her Facebook page and the post went viral, making its way to the CEO of Bellhops, Luke Marklin. On Monday, Marklin, the Lamey family, the police officers and others gathered as Marklin gifted Carr with a 2014 Ford Escape.

So, while the rest of the country is comparing meat-eaters to Nazis and healthy sexuality to pedophilia, the South, with its abounding acts of love and gratitude and lovely southern charm and graces — the South will save the world.

Seems the intellectual score at the University of Wurzburg has taken a sharp dive since the days when Rudolph Roentgen did pioneering work in inventing X-Rays there… Maybe it’s the effect of too much local Steinwein being consumed around there?…

- Natalie Portman, the ultimate self loathing Jew. PETA – okay with bird & bat killing wind farms & barbaric halal slaughter but needing to preach to the general public about “animal rights” anyway. Could you find a bigger jackass?

- They will not be normalizing pedophilia. This has been their (the far left) goal for a long time now. If people do not stand up to them then the West is lost & deserves to be lost. Pedophiles & their enablers need to be hanging from lampposts.

- A feel good story to finish things off. The kind of story you’ll never see the mainstream media produce. Well done.

Amusing that PETA is calling meat-eaters Nazis. Many leading Nazis, including Adolph, were vegetarians and/or animal rights fanatics. The Third Reich rushed through the world’s most stringent laws prohibiting animal testing – they used humans instead. On an overlapping theme, a book titled “The Pink Swastika” explores the connection between the Third Reich and homosexuality. The key concept is “hebephilia” which is distinct from pedophilia in that the predator targets boys in their early teens. The Brownshirts (SA) were an OPENLY hebephilic cult.

Kim Marie would you use the holocaust to make your point about people who like to eat meat? Seriously, don’t eat meat if you don’t want to but to expect everyone to follow your skewed view on the pecking order of the creatures God put on this earth, is more than a little presumptuous.
The holocaust reference was an insult to anyone who has any compassion for victims of that atrocity. Go to China and complain to them for eating Rover.

I am going back to my barbeque. The ribs need basting.

Liza – this is what happens when Normal people become tolerant of insanity & lunacy! They – like cancer take over & start spewing their insane ways. Have you ever heard of those cases where normal people living with a lunatic soon become “infected”?? Those people don’t realize that insanity is infectious.
Libtarded “tolerance” causes insanity!

I think Natalie is doing a good thing by honoring Issac Singer’s dedication to equal rights, including rights for animals. Singer was a vegetarian because he was against killing animals just as he was against killing humans. I hope his work inspires more people to consider animals when they eat.

‘For animals, all people are Nazi’s’ is correct, and always will be, as long as we kiss Islamic butt and slaughter Halal style.

I wonder who molested the ted talk millennial. She must have some twisted back story to be advocating for pedophiles. Sick minds everywhere. Protect your kids. The government via normalization of such degeneracy is coming for them.
Portman is beyond insulting. What an ignorant witch. Excuse my misspelling with a w instead of a b.
Whats with all the mental illness these days being normalized?

Thanks for the feel good story to help put the other two in some perspective. Regular folks are mostly pretty darn decent, and its good to remember that, because sometimes it feels like we are being surrounded by freaks and sickos.
