I recognize that this woman is not seriously that retarded, that she is rhetorically signalling being totally above the brutal and backward concept of nationalism. It’s still unbelievably triggering. If there is one thing that brings my piss to a boil, it’s when people (usually women) substitute snark for stupidity when asserting their enlightened opinion. There are less obtuse methods for sticking your head up your ass.
It’s time to check in on our friends over at XOJane, everyone’s favorite feminist activist/advertising/studded-dildo-testing site that always manages to ironically degrade women more thoroughly than MRAs or porn studios. Writer K.T. Bradford just ‘challenged’ the readers of the world to set aside their white supremacist, heteronormative, cis-centric, and patriarchial (in other words, functional) standards of civilized literature and explore the vast and creative writings of the vibrant and marginalized Others of the planet. She wants us to spend one whole year reading nothing but literature written by POCs, LGBTBBQs, trannies, and wymyn to open our mind to the world that we obviously already know exists around us…or something.
Let’s ignore the overuse of pronouns. Let us also pretend that the writer used “not” instead of “never.” We should avoid asking why “thyself” is even there (maybe this was a romantic Quaker-themed restaurant?).
We should especially overlook that this black woman (judging by handwriting and tone) had such a profound inferiority complex that she felt compelled to project her grasp of the English language to a waiter.
Over at the oddly named website .Mic a rare domesticated male dindu and self-declared social justice advocate named Derrick Clifton has revealed the secret to fulfilling every man’s dream of becoming a feminist. No, not the #NiceGuy creepy serial rapist type of male feminist, but the one who actually believes in this shit. So You Want to Be a Male Feminist? Here Are 11 Simple Rules to Follow is a pretty intimidating headline, but since the rules are supposed to be simple, I’m up for the challenge.
The University of Michigan is doing their part to help end offensive speech. In a new $16k program they have dubbed the “Inclusive Language Campaign,” the university has effectively banned a number of common words and phrases. They believe that this prohibition will be just what the doctor ordered, and surely will prevent sensitive individuals from having their dainty feelings bruised by the unwashed masses.
We can do better than this. Obviously, the university isn’t going far enough. Being the caring and politically correct humanist that I am, I have come up with a short list of additional words and phrases that must be banned from our society immediately in order for us all to avoid any uncomfortable realities.
“No enemies to the right” is a good motto to live by but what does one do when those to the right of you see you as the enemy? Paranoid behavior is a hallmark of the left. It manifests itself in the leftist singularity or as Camus puts it, “Every revolutionary ends up either becoming an oppressor or a heretic.”
The left always devours itself. It isn’t exactly surprising that leftists always end up putting paranoid and psychopathic mass-murdering dictators in power. It’s predictable.
To see such behavior on the far right is something else altogether. It becomes pathological when those who would otherwise see themselves as reactionaries attempting to reassert or regain their power suddenly take on the psychology of the powerless radical leftist.
Bruce Jenner is “transitioning” into a “woman.” Or so he/she/it claims. (E will run an hour long feature at the appropriate time after the
mohel doctor finishes the mutilation) This once proud, white,masculine athlete is devolving before our very eyes, and yet all along remaining a symbol of the status of white America. As Common Filth is wont to say: “Do not avert your eyes. Look at it. See it.”
Nazis show up in the darndest places. The Right Stuff recently had a run-in with
The Guardian when inept writer Jason Wilson denied the entire history of the New Left. Instead of responding to TRS in a professional manner he and his friends simply laughed and shrugged off the criticism. Actual philosophical debate isn’t The Guardian’s strong point. Luckily, the far right decided to do Wilson’s work for him when that incident snowballed into a critical debate between Libertarian Alliance’s Keith Preston, Alternative Right’s Duns Scotus, and The Right Stuff’s Michael Enoch about the validity and nature of the concept of Cultural Marxism. Wilson, of course, hasn’t said a word.
Given such a polarized political climate, who would have guessed that The Guardian contributor Damien Walter would cave in and defer to the expertise of an overt anti-Semite? Walter, a self-described writer of weird and speculative fiction, recently published an article on the 50th anniversary of Frank Herbert’s Dune in The Guardian. In the piece he links to the article, Archeofuturist Fiction: Frank Herbert’s Dune, Part 1, by far right intellectual Greg Johnson of Counter-Currents Publishing.
Here we have what passes for dialectic in this country. Tradition vs. Progress. Old vs. New. Stupid Faith vs. Smart Faith. I’m not surprised to learn this deep, meaningful debate was covered by Good Morning America. This is the Liberal Cat Lady’s catnip.
…But what does “Christian” mean in this context? Is the Partridge family really taking a stand against our decadent and secular culture? Are they really taking up the cross and following the Lord in a meaningful fashion? Let’s take a look at their blogs:
Umm…. You seem to have forgotten to capitalize “God” there, Veronica. LOL, whoopsie.
The husband’s blog isn’t much better.
…I bet the Bible would do a better job of that, bro.
