It’s that time of year again. The time when liberals collectively remind us with tweets from their iPhones that they are above petty consumerism and that employing a mere 6,000 out of 2.2 million workers at minimum wage (a policy which they’re phasing out) is tantamount to slavery. Many of them cheered when the UFCW and AFL-CIO operated OUR Wal-Mart union announced plans to strike at every one of Wal-Mart’s 1600 locations (there were no strikers at either of mine). The #RaiseTheWage and #FightFor15 crowds are calling this year’s strikes “the most successful ever”.
So how many went on strike? According to the OUR Walmart union approximately 1,500 workers nationwide went on strike for Black Friday.
That’s 0.006% of their retail associates. No, that’s not a typo. Zero point zero zero six percent. Less than one per store.
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.
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.
It never ceases to amaze me to see the lengths women will go to signal status and achieve what they believe to be a higher place in feminism’s trivial pecking order.
The CNN article begins with Mrs. Theresa Corbin’s early life, being totally repulsed by the intellectual barrenness and sexism of Catholicism (lol cool story). The author would spend four years “poking and prodding at world religions and their adherents”(READ: drum circles and exotic boyfriends), before settling for the hijab.
She is vague on specifics, but ultimately converted to Islam two months after 9/11… For reasons totally unrelated to politics I’m sure.
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.
As the commentary around the recent deaths of Augusto Pinochet, S. Truett Cathy and the career of Mel Gibson made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about liberalism and Nazism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Brown Scares designed to impress that anti-liberalism is tantamount to genocide. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Second War-era threat of Jewish annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about Nazism and liberalism.
I know there’s been a lot of hand wringing lately over the fate of jolly ol’ England and the real-world consequences of all that vibrant diversity getting imported into the ancestral home of so many of us. News stories about Pakistani rape cover-ups and British soldiers being hacked apart in the streets of London by lunatic Muslim extremists might trigger an instinctive sense of alarm or sympathetic concern for the fate of England, but seriously, fuck that country.
I am not known for environmentalism. “Conservation” for me is picking up after myself and not overfishing the local lake. I will recycle when it’s available, but I am not keeping up with those extra bins at home. That’s a headache and I have better things to do; dragoon those sickly Honduran children to recycle my shit for me.
Don’t get me started on the bizarre lifestyles greenies indulge in, like non-GMO diets or shitting in cat boxes or living in a closet. I already have a God I seek forgiveness from, and Thoreau was mediocre anyway.
I want to own an electric or hybrid vehicle like I want a haircut from an ISIL militant. I’m jonesing for a big ole’ diesel truck like every other red-blooded American male.
