"Bad Dog" – A Political Satire
Henry Makow Ph.D. – June 24, 2008
This session of the Seventeenth District Human Rights Tribunal of the Feminist Soviet of Canada is set to begin. Ms. Rutherford- Armstrong is the Prosecutor. The Judge is Madam Chegundi Tsunami, a woman of color. The Defendant is Henry Makow of Winnipeg, white male.
Rutherford-Armstrong: "Mr. Makow, at 10.25 a.m. on May 22, 2008 at the corner of Maple and Higgins, you were overheard to utter the words, "bad dog" to your pet. How do you plead?"
Makow: "Guilty with an explanation, Madame. "
Rutherford: "And what is your explanation?"
Makow: "I'm trying to teach Raffi not to chase cats. He practically pulls my arm out of its socket. He has pulled me off my bike more than once and broken many retractable leashes."
Rutherford: "The witness, a Ms. Termagant, reported that there was a hint of impatience in your voice. This was confirmed by tapes from a nearby CCTV. Is this true?"
Makow: "Yes, it's possible."
Rutherford: "Do you realize how damaging this is to a dog's self esteem? Demonizing him as "bad"? Withdrawing affection?"
Makow: ""I was just trying to train him. I wasn't angry. I still loved him."
Rutherford: "Mr. Makow, do you have any professional credentials in the field of dog training? Have you read any Feminist theorists?"
Rutherford: "Then, you wouldn't know how to train a dog, would you?"
Makow: "Well I think I can figure it out." I do praise him when he obeys."
Rutherford: (shaking her head in disgust) "Your Honor, please note Makow's arrogance, typical of someone who has feasted on the spoils of Patriarchy all his life.
What makes you think the dog should obey you?"
Makow: "Well he belongs to me."
Rutherford: "How can you "own" another living being? Isn't that being possessive? Doesn't he have a right to find self fulfillment on his own terms?"
Makow: (speechless) "He's dependent on me now."
Rutherford: "Your Honor, we've had other reports of Makow leaving his dog outside a supermarket. The dog jumps up on him when he emerges but Makow scolds his dog for this. This causes stress and self-doubt in the animal."
Makow: "May I explain? Raffi has sharp claws and scratches me. I know his intentions are good and I ward him off as gently as possible."
Rutherford: "But you are rejecting him, nonetheless?"
Makow: "Don't men have any rights? 'When a white male is cut, does he not bleed?'"
Judge Chegundi-Tsunami: "That's enough facetiousness. I won't warn you again. You will be held in Contempt."
Rutherford: "Your Honor, Makow is exhibiting the abusiveness characteristic of all white males.
"The pattern of white man-dog inequality is the original model for all abuse throughout history. It is responsible for imperialism. By making an example of Makow, we can end imperialism."
Judge Chegundi Tsunami: "I am in complete agreement. Makow is interfering with the dog's natural instinct to chase cats. The reprehensible tendency of white men to interfere with Nature is responsible for war and the depredation of the environment, global warming as well as the oppression of Jews, women, children, homosexuals, people of color, and animals.
"Mr. Makow, you'll have time in jail to ponder the effect of Patriarchy on your character. Thankfully, Patriarchy is dead and you are just a hoary anachronism. Your kind will be extinct in a few more years and mankind can enter a period of peace and harmony.
"I sentence you to 30 days in jail, and fine you $500 for abusing an animal. Also, you must take a six-month Anger Management Course. I hope you will think twice before saying "bad dog" again.
"As a ward of the State, Raffi will be raised by professionals. Mr.Makow, do you have anything to say?"
Makow: "This isn't about protecting minorities or women, is it? It's not about dogs. It's about training white males."
Chegundi Tsunami: "Be careful what you say, Mr. Makow. I'm warning you! Bad man! Bad man!"

I'm a recovering feminist and I just want to say that I love your site. We need more people like you with the guts to just say what used to be common sense. We have to fight the "doublethink" and "newspeak". I do it all the time by being as politically incorrect as possible in my personal speech.
It is possible to un-brainwash people, but they have to see the consequences of liberal ideals first hand.
I used to call my father racist – when I lived in all white Maine, but when I moved to south Florida and had to live and work around the joys of multiculturalism, my vision cleared. It wasn't until I got married to one heck of a wonderful man that I realized how dehumanizing feminism is to men. Our marriage is strong because we realize that the most loving thing two people can do is take care of each other and men and women don't take care of each other in the same way. They have very different responsibilities to one another. We have a solid marriage because of traditional morality.
Really the way that people think nowadays is making people very miserable. All this misery and despair in what should be a wonderful world!
How could people want to inflict such suffering? I know they do, I just cant understand why.
Your insights are just terrific. I've been looking for a site like yours for a while. I caught on to the propaganda bit years ago when I spotted far too many white/black couples in advertising relative to the demographics. Since then, I also now spot metrosexual influences and of course feminist themes abound. Violence is constantly poured onto the youth. One of the most disturbing trends is the sexual themes directed at children. My brother was playing a "teen" video game the other day with a fantasy theme. It was fine for a while destroying titans and monsters, and then all of a sudden in the clouds it came to a part where the main character had to have sex with two women?!?
I'm traumatized all the time thinking about the madness being bred right now. These kids will be big someday!
Thank you for speaking out and saying what needs to be said. We all need to be doing this, we need to be talking about this.
