This will be extremely divisive, that is a tight-knit group. This threatens to tear apart the very fabric of their community. Though, I'm not sure how she will know, they do go by the old motto, snitches get stitches.

Any publicity is better than no publicity.

On the plus side, perhaps some people that never considered knitting will now take up the craft? The world can always use more knit caps and fugly sweaters.

I'm just waiting for the wool, cock socks to come back in style.

There were a lot of yarn shops involved in the run-up to the Women's March; not this one, though!

I imagine she'll lose some business (she's not the only yarn shop in the greater Nashville metro area), but I also imagine there are knitters who agree with her to some degree, or simply don't care either way who will keep shopping there.

2. Yet I cared just enough to post here.

The county Franklin is in went 63% Trump and 29% Clinton. I do not think she fears a massive backlash.

The old bat will put herself out of business because she went out of her way to insult and offend a large segment of her own community and surrounding areas. And she didn't have to get up in the face of any customer in her own store to deliver that over-the-top verbal assault, either.

Although she said it in the most virulantly caustic way imaginable, the old bat essentially said in an indirect way that she prefers Trump supporters only as customers. She could even post a sign in her store that says: "We serve Trump-supporting customers only"; however, there's no way that she could outwardly perceive what a person's political affiliation is much less whether they support Donald Trump.

Nonetheless, what the old bat said is profoundly evocative of comments made over the past week by Christian Supremacist and Dominionist leaders alike.


> Excerpts from the January 24, 2017 Right Wing Watch news story by Kyle Mantyla entitled:

Dominionist Pastor Rick Joyner Declares: "The Women’s March Was A Blatant Manifestation Of The Jezebel Spirit"





Right-wing pastor Rick Joyner posted a video on his Facebook page yesterday in which he declared that last weekend’s Women’s March on Washington was a “blatant manifestation of the Jezebel spirit” brought about because Satan knows he is about to be cast out of America, thanks to President Trump.

Joyner said that “there was a meanness, there was a rage” in the women who participated “that was very unattractive,” lamenting that they were so crude that even the things he heard while serving in the Navy “didn’t seem as bad as what coming out of some of these women during that Women’s March in D.C.”

"The Jezebel spirit", he explained, “is a spirit that seeks to seduce God’s people into sexual immorality and into the worship of idols” and has managed to take over much of the nation in recent years but is now flying into a rage as it realizes that its influence over the country is about to be lost.

“Why was there such a rage?” he asked. “I think it’s because that Jezebel spirit is about to be thrown down in America and I think much of the world and it knows its time is short. As you see in the Book of Revelation, whenever Satan is cast out of heaven, he comes to the earth with great wrath … I think that’s what’s been going on here too and I think Trump is a real serious threat to the general Jezebel spirit.”




> Excerpts from the January 24, 2017 Right Wing Watch news story by Kyle Mantyla entitled:

Dominionism Advocate Lance Wallnau Declares: "The Women’s March Was A Manifestation of The Spirit Of Witchcraft"





Right-wing pastor and ardent Donald Trump supporter Lance Wallnau posted a video on his Facebook page last night in which he declared that the Women’s March on Washington and the protests surrounding Trump’s inauguration were a spiritual manifestation of witchcraft and “the spirit of Jezebel.”

Echoing Rick Joyner, Wallnau said that the march and protests were “the unmasking of the nature of the progressive spirit” and “its desire to control and intimidate and manipulate.”

Manipulation, intimidation and control are the hallmarks of “the spirit of witchcraft” and “witchcraft is the spirit of Jezebel,” Wallnau said, “so it makes sense to me that there would be half a million women who would show up” in Washington, D.C., on the day after Trump’s inauguration.

“It’s a witchcraft that’s operating behind this stuff,” he said later, “and it’s intimidation and it’s violence and it’s threatening and it’s destructive and it’s clearly the work of the Devil. And the media mind controls what we’re dealing with. It’s mind control that has people incapable of seeing the reality” in front of them.

Wallnau said the one of his family members recently insisted that they were well-informed because they got their news from places like NBC, ABC, and CBS, but that didn’t impress him because, he said, that’s like “listening to Joseph Goebbels, Hitler, and Goering.”




> Excerpts from the January 23, 2017 Right Wing Watch news story by Robert Mainville entitled:

Religious Right Activist Dave Daubenmire Proclaims: "The Men Who Joined The Women’s March On Washington Are Sissies"





Saturday’s Women’s March On Washington was bound to bring protest from radical figures such as David Daubenmire. On his “Pass The Salt” program today, the Religious Right activist shared a video of himself heckling marchers by calling male participants “sissies” and telling women, “You’re the one who spread your legs, don’t blame the baby.”

As a protester responded to Daubenmire antagonizing other marchers, he responded by shouting, “Hey, Sir, you’re a sissy! You’re a sissy! That’s right! If you were a real man you wouldn’t force your wife to be out here. You say, ‘Well, my husband supports me.’ Hah. Sure! You married a woman. That’s what you did. You made a sissy-man.”

“You’re the one who spread your legs, so don’t blame the baby!” Daubenmire shouted at other marchers.

Daubenmire continued to attack the march and announced that “feminism is the rebellion against the laws and rules of God.”

The source of their excesses becomes apparent.

edit: Doubtless James is racing me to be the first to point out that knitting was, and remains, a very masculine past-time.

Probably begun by shepherds, high in the hills, on the quieter evenings when only a mountain lion or fox was troubling the flock, not when driving off a wolf-pack, bear, real lion, packs of thieves or succubi. As an alternative to flute playing, knitting was productive of both clothing and barterable items, relaxing and able to be done in company.

Instead, I'll let former NFL pro-football player Rosie Greer tell ya about the manliness of needlepoint.
