But only in Western nations and due to their inherent egalitarian natures. Is it not the epitome of irony that the only societies where feminism can persist are the very ones that do not need it? Perhaps, but I believe that we can go deeper and find an even more biting irony.
If there is one major insight TRS has formed about the culture wars, it’s that the Right needs to quit letting the Left harry them into submission by agreeing to play the “I’m Not a Bigot Game.” Every single time a liberal convinces a conservative the burden of proof is on them to establish a lack of racism/bigotry/sexism, the entire alt-right collectively facepalms over their stupidity. Don’t play the damn game in the first place.
The most poignant example of this occurred recently when scientist Matt Taylor found himself in boiling hot water over his personal choice in T-shirts. Rather than simply smirk over a glass of single malt scotch and tell the Feminist Inquisition to go fuck themselves with the dildos they rode in on, Taylor instead publicly apologized and cried over the ordeal. Really brah? These ninnies are whining about a T-shirt made for you BY A FEMINIST WOMAN, and you let the little harpies pick away at you like a bloated piece of roadkill? Just point out that no one deserves to be treated differently because of what they’re wearing, then watch anuses explode when the analogy to rape apologizing penetrates those thick feminist skulls.
This week Obama announced that he will pursue an executive order that will allow certain illegal immigrants in America to obtain “deportation relief.” This means that they will be able to apply for paper work which will prevent them from being deported for the next three years. In order to qualify for deportation relief an illegal immigrant must pass a background check showing that they have been in the US since 2010, are not criminals, and are either parents of a US citizen or were under 16 when they immigrated here. It is estimated that there are 4 to 5 million illegal immigrants currently in the US who meet these requirements.
Obama’s deferral of deportation of up to 5 million illegals won’t change America overnight. However, if allowed to proceed without any real opposition, it will accelerate the long and slow decline of the USA into a Central American Banana Republic.
The facts of the policy are as follows: Obama issued an executive order that extends “deportation protection” for up to 5 million illegal aliens currently residing inside the United States. Those that qualify are immigrants that have been inside the US for more than 5 years, have no criminal record (other than breaking immigration law, of course) and have children that are citizens, meaning those that plopped out a baby after crossing the border. Also covered are 300,000 or so immigrants that were children when their parents brought them over the border illegally. This group of people will be allowed to stay indefinitely, will have a chance to get work visas, a chance to get permanent legal residency and in some cases even a chance to get social security numbers.
There are two fundamental issues that right wingers of various stripes should take with this executive action: one is in regard to the demographic situation in the USA, the other is in regard to legal precedent.
Capitalism is demonstrably shown to work. However, the attempt to intertwine the success of capitalism with the dildo granted Western society a short lived euphoria before becoming a threat to itself. I’m stating this now because for some reason, possibly to do classical conditioning, many immediately make the leap from anti-cultural dildo to inefficient economic concepts that attempt to turn the market into the church. Fascism was a demonstrable economic failure, as was communism. I know many listeners get their stupid economic information from watching hours of amateur YouTube videos praising hitlernomics (such videos may include Greatest Story Never Told, National Alliance videos, etc). We could maybe address why in fact Hitlernomics were piss poor in disective detail on another podcast, but long story short, Hitler ultimately did nothing but create a massive martial economic bubble. The economy was not built for long lasting purposes. It was built for starting a war, and winning a war. Perhaps some might argue that the Germans could maintain stability post-war by basically holding a gun to the head of the world, but that’s ultimately a ridiculous assertion. Again, topic for another time.
Classical liberalism’s champion, John Locke, was an idiot. He makes a very false assumption of humanity and Western peoples. To Locke, human and market interaction is a completely voluntary phenomenon, due to the high intellectual capacity of humans* to desire a more prosperous society through logical and peaceful evaluation. Because of this, he believed a government ought to be small, and strictly serve the whims of the populace to achieve the most prosperous and free society. He also believed all people where born into a morally equal blank state, and that all people have intrinsic value.
It sounds nice because it’s completely self-empowering. When libertarians/liberals make claims of human importance, it’s a self-valuing claim with a collective cushion; basically saying “I am very important” with safe language. Continue reading
Having come out of yet another midterm election, this is the period of time that American media spends analyzing what went right and what went wrong. They simply cheer for what went right without any time spent on how it occurred. Even with what went wrong, they never analyze the systematic inefficiency, only what went wrong specifically for their ideological torchbearers. Though expecting anything else would be a bit like anticipating an objective meta-analysis of the societal determinants of a rape incident by the victim or the rapist. One knows they got what they wanted and the other knows they got what they did not want.
A new study came out recently looking at whether Republicans or Democrats are smarter (1). It showed that republicans are smarter than democrats and that this is true even after taking race out of the picture. Unsurprisingly, this study isn’t receiving the kind of attention that studies exposing the intellectual inferiority of religious and/or racist people get.
Before we overdose on liberal tears, let’s explore the hilarious campaign fail that was #TURNOUTFORWHAT
What kind of message was that? What kind of identity is that conveying, what kind of ideal? No wonder Tyrone, Mohammed and Aiden stayed home while Grandpa and Grandma put Republicans back in the Capitol. Who wants to turn out for that?
It’s not surprising this video didn’t go viral, that Huffpo or Upworthy wasn’t declaring “so much this.” Fact of the matter is, this ad went too far, it was too much this.
It’s very hard not to be upset at the Kaci Hickox story.
Here we have a supposed “health care professional,” someone with years of medical experience both domestically and overseas, throwing a hissy-fit because being seen at the local Whole Foods is more important than government safety protocols and public health concerns. Because human freedom or whatever. Because I’m sure the founders of this country envisioned a day and age where a state government would bend over backwards to accommodate some fugly New England bitch’s desire to ride a bike for the evening news, or feminism, or something. I digress.
As a strong, independent woman and 8 year veteran of the Army Reserves who served a tour in Iraq, Kate Hoit took on a new frontier of estrogen evangelism: attempting to join the VFW. When she asked for an application at her local VFW chapter, they offered her a (gasp!) military spouse application. She was outraged. Couldn’t they see how tough she was, and how she had shaken the establishment paradigm by
grifting serving her country in a time of war? These out-of-touch sexist patriarchal old white men clearly need to check their privilege.
