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.
In case you missed it, writer/actress and former Batman Returns villain Lena Dunham recently became the subject of controversy after describing sexual misadventures with her younger sister. When National Review observed that not only was the Emperor Penguin not wearing clothes, but the Emperor Penguin had also admitted to sexually molesting a sibling, Dunham instantly descended into a “rage spiral“, apparently indignant that describing yourself as behaving like a sexual predator might just result in people actually calling you a sexual predator. Naturally, being the TARGET of moral outrage doesn’t sit well with people accustomed only to making OTHERS the object of sanctimonious castigation, something Lena herself tried in the selfsame autobiographical book by recounting another past sexual experience in college in such a manner as to subtly imply she might have been raped by a young Republican.
A black guy just died of Ebola in Dallas. As mentioned in a previous article, this made liberals go absolutely bananas, given that the first guy to get Ebola in America, Dr. Ken Brantly, a white man, survived his ordeal while Thomas Eric Duncan, a black man, did not.
If you listen to the left, the cause is clear: racism.
Thomas Sowell once talked about the liberal inability to think of actors in any given situation as anything other than “abstract people in an abstract world”. It goes far deeper than that, however, with the modern left. They are abstract people in an abstract world where the only thing that isn’t abstract is racism.
Picture the following: featureless, gray humanoids, all assembled in two different groups. Give one, or both, of those groups weapons. Now, do they start to kill each other? No. Not yet, lets not make them do that just yet. First, lets paint one of these groups black.
Did you do it? No, no, don’t give them huge nostrils and stop making them chant “Bix nood mofugga”. That’s insensitive.
This wonderful little gem has been finding its way around Being Liberal, Occupy Wall Street, and other such useless congregations of drooling buffoonery on Facebook, and other media outlets. It has come to my attention that this post isn’t really new, but for those who have yet to see it, here is the original post in all of its post-enlightenment glory:
“In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.
For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.
The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.
But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.
The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help.
They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”
NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”
Cool story bro. Unfortunately, it’s not one bit true.
Western societal honor has been sacrificed upon the altar of the post-modern. That’s the simple fact of the matter. Honor is now foreign to the mind of the West, and there truly is no standard set for the Western individual. Why should we hold honor in such high regard? What is honor? Why was honor sacrificed?
In all corners of the Earth where honor can historically/presently be found, it is generally defined the same way regardless of culture or region. Honor is the eternal reputation of the self. It is not necessarily defined by intelligence, cunning, strength, speed, or talent. Honor is worthiness, loyalty, truthfulness, respect, being well-mannered, having discipline, and being humble. Ultimately, one of high honor was of high value to society, and held in high regard. Therefore, the actions of the honorable were something to pay mind.
Let me start by saying not everything in this essay is directly from my mind alone. I received much inspiration from history, Allan Bloom’s The Closing of the American Mind, and Erik Leddihn’s The Menace of the Herd. I’m not sure anyone can make the claim their thoughts are without influence. I would also like to state that I have not always been anti-democracy. I was raised an all-American catholic boy, passionate about my “freedom” and “individuality”. Like most kids, I didn’t stick with the political influence of my parents. I bounced around ideology to ideology, reading manifestos, novels, and articles. Conservative schools of thought, Neo-liberalism, communism, national socialism, libertarianism, and anarchism (and its capitalistic sub-schools). Being young and naive, I was trying to discover the Holy Grail of politics. A perfect system, a world of pros without cons. While I now firmly believe that to be an impossibility, I believe specific forms of government are far more efficient for all of man, and man would do well to remove comforting lies of “equality” and “self empowerment” from his mind, less they corrupt the potential of mankind.
So, something of political importance happened in America during yesterday’s sportball event. I know, because within 24 hours my feed has been inundated with boycott petitions and appeals to the bandwagon fallacy.
I know I know, they’re being ridiculous. It’s only a ball game. They are being totally extreme and it was only a commercial or some commercials. This kind of reaction totally reflects their horrible politics and validates everything you laugh about on Jon Stewart’s show. Coincidentally, have you considered killing yourself?
IT HAPPENED TO ME: I witnessed feminism achieve dildo-singularity.
Not the article itself, mind. While it is amusing to read Pia Glen whine about oppression in a language her people didn’t invent, to see her defend a modern “black culture” that was entirely invented by the mercantile branch of The Hydra, this is not the singularity I speak of.
Today’s subject comes from Amren: Pope Francis Calls Upon The Nations Of The World To Welcome Immigrants.
The African continent accounts for less than 3% of the world’s GDP. Those countries that make the greatest contribution to this number are either Muslim, have a significant number of Whites, or in the case of Nigeria have oil or a similarly-valuable resource… That’s exploited by non-Africans.
