The Solution to the Culture War

It took a comment by Craig Smith to remind me, there really is a Win-Win solution to the culture war.

Yet another good reason for government to get OUT of the marriage license business.

Exactly so. There is no need for the Government to be in the marriage business in the first place. Getting them out means there is no discrimination against Teh Gheys or Christians.

Win-Win.

Unfortunately, the Social Left is getting far too much gratification from using Government to force their social views on society to give up this power willingly.

Double Standards

Filed under: Post 9-11 America

The left has decided that the greatest monster of the human race is a clerk in the backwoods of Kentucky who doesn’t want to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and that this particular news story two minutes hate is far more important than Iran getting nukes because of Obama’s terrible deal. (Isn’t it interesting that we know everything about her background, but nothing about anything sleazy that might be in the background of the gay couples that were seeking marriage licenses? Curious that.)

FWIW, I agree with Carly Fiorina.

“First, I think that we must protect religious liberties with great passion and be willing to expend a lot of political capital to do so now because it’s clear religious liberty is under assault in many, many ways,” she said. “Having said that, when you are a government employee, I think you take on a different role. When you are a government employee as opposed to say, an employee of another kind of organization, then in essence, you are agreeing to act as an arm of the government.”

Fair enough. But I can’t help but notice that leftists don’t get that upset when other Government employees decide that their personal beliefs outweigh the law. For example:

  • The Democrat mayors of ‘sanctuary cities’ that refuse to follow Federal immigration law.
  • The Democrat bureaucrats that issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants.
  • The butchers at Planned Parenthood illegally harvesting and selling the organs of unborn babies.
  • Bureaucrats in cities like Washington DC who refuse to issue concealed carry permits despite multiple court rulings.
  • The states of Washington and Colorado that have decided to openly defy Federal Drug Laws, and progressive cheer.
  • Hillary Clinton. Private Email server. Classified materials. Influence Peddling. Destruction of Evidence.

So, apparently the rule is, it’s okay to ignore the law when leftists do it.

Why Kermit Ditched Miss Piggy

Posted by V the K at 8:39 am - September 2, 2015.
Filed under: Pop Culture

In a culture that is driven by make-believe (“Caitlyn Jenner is a woman!” “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” “Republicans are conservative.”), it’s only natural that the break-up of two make-believe characters would be treated like an actual news story.

A story in People magazine had said Kermit the Frog wasted no time moving on from his breakup with longtime girlfriend Miss Piggy and was now dating an ABC marketer named Denise.

Not true, says Kermit. They’re just “friends.”

Let’s be honest, Miss Piggy has always been completely self-centered, high-maintenance, manipulative, and at times downright abusive; a typical 21st Century feminist. That’s probably why the feminists gave her an award. She openly flirts with other men in front of him and just expects Kermit to take it.

And basically, Kermit got tired of dealing with her sh-t.

Kind of plays into the social zeitgeist, or whatever. “Empowered” women have become so unbearable that men are not just fleeing marriage, but relationships with women entirely.

At the end of the day, Kermit and Miss Piggy are inanimate pieces of felt and stuffing. Pretending they are real people makes about as much sense as pretending Trayvon Martin was an innocent schoolboy gunned down by a white racist.

Hillary’s Incompetence

In a sane world, Hillary’s complete incompetence and mindless obeisance to failed policies would sink her candidacy, and not her corrupt use of a private email server.

As this recovered email shows, she is not merely imcompetent in the political sphere (teaming with Obama to turn the entire Middle East into a dumpster fire), but even everyday things like paying bills and checking TV listings are beyond her capacity.

Of course, in the rarefied sphere in which the Clintons (and the Bushs, and the Gores, and the McCains, and the Obama’s) reside, the inability to do these things is seen as a mark of superiority, of class distinction. Cooking and paying bills are for “the little people.” We might burn a batch of scrambled eggs, Hillary and Obama have set entire countries on fire.

Have You Ever Noticed That No Group Affiliated with the Democrat Party Is Ever Labeled “Extreme”

If you want the Federal Government to spend less money, you’re a dangerous extremist and a terrorist.

Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit, according to several sources in the room.

Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.

“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”

Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists.”

If, on the other hand, you belong to a movement whose members openly call for the murder of white people and cops….

Black Lives Matter protesters marching on the Minnesota state fair on Saturday spewed violent anti-cop rhetoric just hours after a Harris County, Tex. sheriff’s deputy was ambushed and executed at a Houston-area gas station.

“Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” activists with the St. Paul, Minn. branch of Black Lives Matter chanted while marching behind a group of police officers down a highway just south of the state fair grounds.

… then, the Democrat Party will pass a resolution supporting your group and its goals.

“[T]he DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming ‘Black lives matter’ and the ‘say her name’ efforts to make visible the pain of our fellow and sister Americans as they condemn extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children,” the resolution states.

Donna Braquet is the … director of the Pride Center at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Yes, that’s actually a job that’s funded by taxpayers [Editor’s note: Tennessee taxpayers pay $52,445 annually for this position]. Braquet recently introduced a set of guidelines that counsels students to swap out the gender-specific pronouns “he” and “she” in favor of more “inclusive” gender-neutral neologisms such as “xe” and “ze.” Braquet argues that the changes are necessary because implicitly hateful terms such as “he” and “she” place a “heavy burden for persons already marginalized by their gender expression or identity.” It is beyond question that in order to be “inclusive,” over 99% of us must succumb to and be inconvenienced by the infantile demands of minoritarian zealots, no matter how much of a pain in the ass they always tend to be.

The Tyranny of the Mentally Ill; an ongoing series

Posted by V the K at 9:08 am - August 31, 2015.

Bureaucrats at the University of Tennessee have issued new speech guidelines to prevent Special Transgender Snowflakes from being traumatized by correct use of the English Language.

We should not assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a roster or in student information systems. Transgender people and people who do not identity within the gender binary may use a different name than their legal name and pronouns of their gender identity, rather than the pronouns of the sex they were assigned at birth.

… We are familiar with the singular pronouns she, her, hers and he, him, his, but those are not the only singular pronouns. In fact, there are dozens of gender-neutral pronouns. A few of the most common singular gender-neutral pronouns are they, them, their (used as singular), ze, hir, hirs, and xe, xem, xyr.

How do you know what pronoun someone uses? If you cannot use the methods mentioned above, you can always politely ask. “Oh, nice to meet you, [insert name]. What pronouns should I use?

If anyone were to ask me that, I would be likely to respond with the use of an imperative verb coupled with a second-person singular pronoun.

Meanwhile, at Washington State University.

Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” “male,” and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.

 

Responding to the Deranged Gun-Haters

Whenever the media hypes a shooting, the effete, freedom-haters of the Left begin mewling about how awful guns are and how they long to live in a “gun-free society.

I see that NRA decal on the rear window of your car and my eyes narrow. I look at the back of your head in the driver’s seat and I wonder if you are a threat. A threat to my children. A threat to me. A threat to society.

This type of simpering totalitarian impulse deserves a response, and fortunately, someone provided one.

I see you quivering in your panties about a sticker, and I snicker just a bit. I look at you and I wonder if you ever had any courage, any integrity, and any understanding of the laws and principles on which this nation was founded. And I wonder if you’re a threat

Read the whole thing.

The thing is, we know what happens when you concede anything to the left; it only makes them want more. We know the ultimate goal of the left is to completely outlaw the private possession of firearms, and everything they do is intended as an incremental step in that direction. That’s why every inch of ground must be fought for.

Obama Regime Raids Gay Escort Service

They warned me if I voted for Mitt Romney, the Government would start raiding and shutting down websites that promote gay-sex-for-pay.

Federal agents and New York City police raided the Manhattan offices of an online male escort service Tuesday, arresting the site’s CEO and six of his employees.

Rentboy.com chief executive Jeffrey Hurant and six others were arraigned in federal court in Brooklyn on charges of promoting prostitution across state lines. Prosecutors say the site sold advertisements for high-priced male prostitutes for several hundred dollars, then charged customers up to $299 per month to access the ads. The operation took in more than $10 million since 2010, prosecutors said.

Congress Petitions State Department to Force American Social Left Values on Other Countries

Because there is no other important business to attend to, over a hundred Congress-drones have petitioned the State Department to force other countries to accept gay marriage.

One hundred and twenty-five members of Congress asked Secretary of State John Kerry in a letter Monday to deny visas to diplomats’ spouses if the envoys come from a country that doesn’t recognize same-sex spouses of State Department personnel.

The lawmakers who wrote Kerry on Monday argued that countries which don’t recognize spouses of gay foreign service officers “hamper the professional growth” of the diplomats and “threaten the Department’s ability to ensure that it can place the best, most qualified person in each position.”

“We cannot look the other way when an American diplomatic spouse — any American diplomatic spouse — is discriminated against in this way… In countries that maintain legalized forms of racism, sexism, or other types of bias, we believe the State Department should take a proactive role in demonstrating America’s deep commitment to equality, dignity, and diversity,” they continued.

Among the petitioners are the many of same Democrats who insist it would be wrong to tie foreign aid to market and political reforms, because that would be “imposing American values on other cultures.” The folks also believe that it’s wrong to expect foreigners who immigrate to the USA to assimilate into our culture, or even learn our language.

But, what the hell, the Obama-Kerry State Department decided a long time ago that pandering to Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians (LGBT) in the USA was a far more important mission than representing American interests around the world.

On a related note, the political appointment of dim-but-well-connected Democrat to the post of US Ambassador to Japan has worked out about as well as … frankly, as when a dim-but-well-connected Democrat hack was put in charge of the Office of Personnel Management and now some Chinese hackers have my SF-84 … which is as conservatives predicted it would.

Vester Flanagan murdered two people today in hopes that an act of black-on-white violence would spur a race war.

Every time there is a shooting, the MFM hopes the shooter will meet their preferred narrative. Not this time.

In an often rambling letter to the authorities, and family and friends, he writes of a long list of grievances. In one part of the document, Williams calls it a “Suicide Note for Friends and Family”.–He says has suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work.

–He says he has been attacked by black men and white females.

–He talks about how he was attacked for being a gay, black man

So, we had to purge all Confederate Battle Flags because Dylann Stormdoor was a southern white supremacist; can we please ban that horrible rainbow flag now? Or does gay privilege trump white privilege?

University Official: “Stealing from WalMart and Target Should Be OK”

Posted by V the K at 9:45 am - August 25, 2015.
Filed under: Racism (Real, Reverse or Faux)

The “Director of Community Relations” at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, said people who steal from Walmart, Target, and other big box stores shouldn’t be prosecuted because they are just spreading the wealth around on a freelance basis.

“I just don’t think they should be prosecuting cases for people who steal from Wal-Mart. I don’t think that. I don’t think that Target, and all them other places – the big boxes that have insurance – they should be using the people that steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police behavior.”

After being called into account, he said that his statement that shoplifters shouldn’t be prosecuted was taken out of context and what he really meant was … shoplifters shouldn’t be prosecuted.

“As it relates to misdemeanor offenses themselves, I believe the community should explore a restorative justice model in which non-violent offenders between the ages of 17 to 25 perform community service.”

How is this “restorative justice” and “community service” is supposed to take place without the involvement of law enforcement? The Director of Community Relations says this should be left up to the communities in which these stores are located to decide what is acceptable. So, if a majority of people in a community are okay with shoplifting, then it just sucks to be you, Wally World.

#BlackLivesMatters > Democracy

Posted by V the K at 9:10 am - August 25, 2015.
Filed under: Racism (Real, Reverse or Faux)

A “career naval officer, former White House fellow and doctoral candidate in law and policy at Northeastern University” has come up with the solution to all of America’s racial problems; make black votes count more than white votes.

A five-thirds compromise would imbue African Americans with a larger political voice that could be used to fight the structural discrimination expressed in housing, education, criminal justice and employment. Allowing black votes to count for 167 percent of everyone else’s would mean that 30 million African American votes would count as 50 million, substituting super-votes for the implausible idea of cash payments.

By strange coincidence, this scheme would advance the Democrat Party. Had this scheme been in place in 2014, the Democrats would have picked up 6 senate seats and seven house seats.

This almost raises the suspicion that all of #BlackLivesMatter, and indeed, all of the social justice agenda is just a scheme to advance one-party totalitarian socialism.

SJW’s Ruin SciFi Writing Awards

One of the lesser fronts in the culture wars is in the area of science fiction writing. But even here, the keyboard warriors of the social justice left carry on their tireless War on Joy.

The facts of this case are the same as in gaming and in every other industry that social justice warriors touch. They do not care about art forms. They do not care about science fiction. They do not even particularly care about talent. They care about enriching and ennobling themselves and their friends, and pushing a twisted, discredited, divisive brand of authoritarian politics.

The skirmish is between the Sad Puppies and the Social Justice Warriors. The Sad Puppies are group of science fiction writers and fans who believe that works should be judged on their quality and entertainment value, not whether they serve The Agenda. Their opposite numbers are entrenched writers and editors who believe that the value of a literary work is based solely on A. NOT being written by a white male and B. serving to advance the left’s social agenda.

The Sad Puppies were successful in organizing their nominations to SciFi writing’s Hugo Awards such that, for the first time in many years, a number of nominees were based on actual literary merit and not identity politics.

The SJW’s would have none of that, such that they decided that No Awards were preferable to awards that might be won by one of the Pale Penis People. They organized a campaign advising their brownshirts that if there were no works in a category with correct politics, they should all vote “No Award.”

The results of Hugo Awards voting were ugly and unprecedented. 5 major categories including best novella and best short story went with “no award.” To put that in perspective, in the previous 60 years of Hugo Awards, a total of 5 “no awards” have been given previously.

Puppies supporters say that slew of “no award” wins this year can at least partially be attributed to the fact that SJW votes were concentrated on that choice, while Puppies votes were distributed between as many as four deserving authors.

Maybe this topic isn’t as important, in the long run, as Obama’s Deal with Iran that lets the Mullahs inspect their own facilities for compliance, or the domination of public education by doctrinaire Marxists, but it is a reminder that be it a Lesbian Luau, a Christian-owned bakery, or the SciFi aisle at Barnes & Noble; there is no respite from the bullying and propaganda of the social left.
