The only interesting bit in an otherwise formulaic NYTimes “Republicans hate teh Gheys” article.

A 92-year-old woman, asked Mr. Rubio about the personal life of Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

“He’s a bachelor, right?” the woman asked.

“He is,” Mr. Rubio said.

Then she asked, “Is he gay?”

Mr. Rubio chuckled. “No,” he replied.

Angry Feminist Is Angry

If the fanatically pro-abortion feminists at NARAL were trying to persuade us they are not fanatically pro-abortion feminists, they came up a little short by putting out shrill, deranged tweets during the SuperBowl attacking pretty much every commercial for not advancing the femiist agenda (because, you know, that’s what SuperBowl commercials are supposed to do). They were furious that a Doritos commercial depicted a non-aborted baby.

They were furious at a Hyundai commercial because it depicted a woman being attracted to a man. Then, they got mad at Hyundai for showing a father caring about his daughter. They were furious at Snickers for “transphobia” and “objectifying women.” They were furious at Audi for not depicting a female astronaut in their commercial.

Their tweets read like parodies of how anti-feminists would depict humorless, angry, radical feminists. But they are not parodies. This is what the left is. Everything must serve the political agenda. Every commercial must advance the cause. (At least they got a thoroughly politicized half-time show from Beyoncé.)  Life should be nothing but an endless series of lectures on how wrong you are.

As the Ayatollah Khomeini said, “An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.”

So is it also with feminism.

Hill Street Blues

H/T: Legal Insurrection.

Hill-Street-600-LI

At the Washington Post, Clinton Media Operative Chris Cilizza tries to explain that her six-figure speeches to Wall Street weren’t really a big deal because Wall Street hedge fund managers really do think it’s worth six figures to hear Hillary yap for half an hour on what it was like to be Secretary of State under Obama.

I generally take Clinton at her word when she describes what the nature of her speeches were: Recounting high profile events and her role in them. “I probably described more times than I can remember how stressful it was advising the president about going after Bin Laden,” she told Chuck on Thursday night.

That makes perfect sense to me; if you are paying several hundred thousand dollars to hear someone like Clinton speak, what you generally want to hear is what it was like to be her in a variety of big/important moments. These speeches, I bet, are largely just a string of anecdotes by Clinton.

Yeah, those honoraria weren’t bribes at all, and you’re silly for thinking so.

With everything else failing, the Hillary Campaign is down to the last refuge of scoundrels: You’re a misogynist if you don’t vote for Hillary.

Hillary Clinton Wins Support from Crazy, Old, Bitter Women

This weekend, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright (you remember her, the fat broad who helped North Korea get nuclear weapons) declared… I am not making this up … women who don’t support Hillary Clinton deserve to burn in hell.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright had a special message for female voters Saturday on the campaign trail with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“And just remember,” she said at a rally in Concord, N.H, flanked by Clinton and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”

Gloria Steinem, whose famous quote “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle” was instrumental in transforming feminism from a movement seeking equal access to economic and social opportunity into a Cult of Misandry, sneered that is women aren’t supporting Hillary, it’s only because they want to meet boys. Because women… at least Democrat women… make decisions entirely because of middle school crushes. Hillary’s corruption, lawbreaking, influence peddling, and general nastiness could not possibly be a factor, according to the paleo-feminists.

The feminist movement is at an odd place. On the one hand, they want rape to be redefined to include “previously consensual sex that a woman changed her mind about after the guy lost interest in her” so they can prosecute campus males as sex offenders and destroy their lives (thus creating a hostile, anti-male environment on college campuses). But on the other hand, their preferred candidate, Mrs. Clinton, has a long history of attacking women who were sexually abused by her husband; these women, rather than being believed, were attacked by the feminist establishment as “trailer trash.”

Democrats and feminists are not motivated by principles, but by a lust for power. Bill Clinton is/was a powerful man, and feminists gained power through their alliance with him. Hence, they overlooked his sexual predations, because power was more important. Now, they rally around the wife that enabled him… because as her power increases, so does theirs.

Escaping the Democrat Plantation

The New York Times opines that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are not real Latinos. “Real Hispanics”… like “real Blacks” and “real gays” are leftists who vote in lockstep with the Democrat Party.

Neither Mr. Cruz nor Mr. Rubio meets conventional expectations of how Latino politicians are supposed to behave.

Neither of these candidates claims to speak for the Hispanic population or derive a crucial portion of their support from Hispanics, and neither bases much of his political identity on being a Latino.

In other words, they are not steeped in leftist identity politics like Democrats Jose Serrano, Luis Guttierez, or Loretta and Linda Sanchez — the Duras sisters of the US Congress.

Curious, isn’t it, that the only minority figures that the old leftist white people who run the media recognize as “legitimate” representatives of their communities are those whose politics align precisely with those of the old leftist white people who run the media.

Anyway, doing taxes has put me in a bad mood, so I am going to kickback with some Rifftrax. In lieu of content, please accept this song about suicide by a gay dude that somehow manages not to suck.

 

A Pretty Good Rundown of the Democrat Campaign

 

12592394_10207492040091473_4164928845252039797_n

60% of the Republican Caucus vote in Iowa went to black or Hispanic candidates. But if you are uncomfortable with minorities and prefer to vote for old white people, the Democrat Party had a debate last night. It pretty much went like this:

Hillary: Vote for me. I’m a woman.

Sanders: Vote for me, I’m a socialist.

Hillary: I’m pretty socialist, too. I’ll give you free stuff.

Sanders: Grr, I’m the real socialist. I’ll give you ALL THE FREE STUFF! And I hate Wall Street.

Hillary: I hate Wall Street too.

Sanders: No you don’t. They give you money.

Hillary: Big money corrupts our entire political process… except for me.

Sanders: I’ll take all of Wall Street’s money and give it away to voters. Then everyone will be as rich as a hedge fund manager. Because that’s how economics works.

Hillary: I hate the NRA.

Sanders: I hate Climate Deniers.

Hillary: I hate the Koch Brothers.

Sanders: I hate you.

Hillary: I hate you.

Sanders: In closing, Vote for me, Free Stuff, bitches!

Hillary: Vote for me, I’m  a woman.

There Goes the Gayborhood

Posted by V the K at 11:40 am - February 4, 2016.

San Francisco gay persons are angry because heterosexuals are moving into their ‘gayborhoods.’

Cleve Jones, a gay activist, saw something that “shocked him” in his local gay bar. “The tech bros had taken over The Mix. They commanded the pool table and the patio. These big, loud, butch guys. It was scary,” he said.

“I’m not heterophobic, but I don’t want to go to a gay bar and buy some guy a drink and have him smirk and tell me he’s straight,” he said.

And…

Amy Sueyoshi, the associate dean of the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University, claims she feels “less safe” because of the increase in heterosexual people in her neighborhood.

Sueyoshi went so far to say: “I do like to go to places in and around the Castro for Happy Hour or a snack and I’ve noticed more straight people making out at these places where I go deliberately to NOT feel like I am oppressed by heterosexuality. Really, straight people do you HAVE to make out in the Castro as well? Good Lord.”

 

Obama Lavishes Praise on Anti-Gay Mosque

Posted by V the K at 8:13 am - February 4, 2016.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

President Obama made a much-publicized visit to a mosque yesterday in which he praised Islam with such gushing fervor you would have thought Mohammedans invented single-payer health care and the capital gains tax.

What was less publicized is that the leadership of this mosque Obama honored with his presence have a record on gay tolerance that has much more in common with the Westboro Baptist Theater Troupe than the faculty at Wellesley.

Being a homosexual “is an immoral act, it is a shameful act, it is despised act, it is haram, it is forbidden in Islam, completely, absolutely, from the Koran, the Hadith [recorded statements from Islam’s reputed founder, the leader Muhammad) and by consensus of the scholars from the beginning of Islam,” says Imam Yaseen Shaikh, who was hired in  to serve as the head of Islamic teaching or Islamic “scholar” for the Islamic Society of Baltimore and its nearby Al-Rahmah school.

Will this matter to the Progressive Gay Left. Of course not. Mohammedans are part of the great Social Democrat Coalition and therefore get a pass on that.

Also, kind of par for the course for people who think the solution to Mohammedan rape gangs is hashtags and YouTube videos. (But college males accused of rape by mentally unstable girls should have their lives destroyed.)

Wesley Crusher Apologizes to Feminists for Supporting Bernie Sanders

Posted by V the K at 6:14 am - February 4, 2016.
Filed under: Gay PC Silliness

Not the headline I wanted to write, but Bruce and Dan would not have approved had I written “Wil Wheaton Is a Mewling P—y boy.”

Anyway, Hillary-supporting feminists have many things wadded and many deposits of silicon-oxide in their nether regions because some of the beta-male Sandernistas have said rude things about Hillary.  Thus, Wil Wheaton must apologize and beg the feminists for their forgiveness.

I’m going to acknowledge my privilege right now, before I get into this. Because I’m a middle-aged white dude, I don’t have the same experience in life that … well, pretty much everyone else who isn’t has. I know that the world is set up to make life for people like me as easy as possible (Scalzi’s “lowest difficulty” setting), and even though I try to see from outside of my own limited perspective, I don’t always succeed.

I honestly didn’t know until today that there’s this subset of Sanders supporters who apparently attack Clinton supporters with really awful and shitty misogynistic behavior. I didn’t know that this same group of people apparently goes after non-white supporters, as well. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t have said a thing that could even remotely be mistaken as defending them, because I find people like that despicable, regardless of who they align themselves with politically.

I know that this sounds like “hashtag not all Sanders supporters” but the Sanders supporters and activists I interact with daily don’t support or engage in that behavior. I honestly thought, after seeing “Bernie Bros” thrown around on a daily basis, that it was being used to describe all of us who believe in Senator Sanders’ platform, as opposed to a shitty group of shitty people (who I honestly can’t believe are genuine progressives like the rest of us who want Bernie to get the nomination). Again, I recognize that this lack of awareness is directly tied to my privilege. I don’t want that to be an excuse, but it’s just the truth, and it’s more than a little embarrassing to me.

Doesn’t reading this stuff make you glad you’re not a liberal?

Socialism Fails Mainly Because Socialists Are Lazy, Selfish Jerks

Posted by V the K at 7:40 pm - February 2, 2016.
Filed under: Socialism in America

Bernie Sanders’ fan base is a lot like the youthful Bernie Sanders — lazy, irresponsible, bad with money and possessing an outsized sense of entitlement. Case in point, the “Anti-Capitalism” Campbell Co-Operative House in Oregon. (A place I actually stayed in once. They serve tofu hotdogs. They were vile.) The young Sandernistas living there wanted to establish a socialist enclave.

“I thought this would be an artist utopia if the right set of motivated and creative and inspired people lived there.”

Instead, they got lazy, irresponsible bums who were bad with money and possessed an outsized sense of entitlement.

“Though rent is cheap — between $300 and $400 depending on the room — members tend to move in, stay for a few months and move out, often without paying the owed rent, the source of the debt.The co-op’s lack of funds and “anti-capitalist” stance make it reluctant to hire debt collectors.”

There you have it. Socialism isn’t about “equality” or “fairness,” it’s about using the power of the state to force other people to give you their stuff.

This is why Socialism is very popular among people who don’t want to work but want stuff. It is notably less popular among people who actually work for the things they need.

Stuff I Didn’t Know About Bernie Sanders But Was Not Surprised to Learn

Posted by V the K at 11:45 am - February 1, 2016.
Filed under: Socialism in America

Bernie Sanders is giving Hillary Clinton a run for her money; mainly because he is promising to take even more money away from the productive to lavish on the unproductive Democrat base. His socialist fervor is borne of his own experience of being a lazy, good-for-nothing failure who attached his mug to the Government teat and never let go.

Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck – and it was a government check.
“I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington. . . .
Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”
Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment – and this is what his friends had to say about him.
The only thing he was good at was talking…non-stop…about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. “The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,” the bitter layabout said. “I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.”

In a meritocracy – or a country where voting majorities were rational and well-informed – Bernie Sanders would not be trusted to run a Dairy Queen, much less the United States of America.

“Segregation Now, Segregation Forever” – Modern Progressives

The University of Connecticut is planning on building a dorm to segregate its African-American students, and giving it an appropriately ghettoized name.

Called the ScHOLA2RS House, the living community for African American males is set to open in 2016. According to UConn’s website, the ScHOLA2RS House is “a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs.”

Dr. Erik Hines, an assistant professor of educational psychology and the future faculty advisor to those in the dorm, said UConn will implement the living space as a “forward-thinking” solution to the fact that black male students graduate at a lower rate.

Which I believe is the PC version of “Colored folk is best off if they keep with their own kind.”

If the issue is really that African-American students are failing, how is putting them all into one segregated building the answer? And what about White and Hispanic students who are failing? Shouldn’t they get help developing better study habits as well?

If “White Privilege” is a problem is the ultimate Progressive solution by segregating the races into their own colleges.

Here’s an interesting hypothesis: What if the whole campus SJW Movement is just leftists tricking their dumbest and most radical students into blaming ‘The Patriarchy’ and ‘White Privilege’ for the fact that the Leftist-Academic-Complex has tricked them into going heavily into debt financing worthless educations?

More “Common Sense Gun Law” In Practice

Posted by V the K at 8:39 pm - January 30, 2016.
Filed under: Gun Control

From New Jersey, where anti-gun laws aren’t quite as strict as Democrats would like them to be, but are getting there.

According to an account provided by New York City’s WPIX, actor and stand-up comedian Carlo Bellario accepted the role of a gangster in a low budget film titled, Vendetta Games. While shooting a portion of the movie in November, the filmmaker provided Bellario with an air pistol to simulate a real firearm for the scene.

Under New Jersey’s gun laws, air pistols are treated as actual firearms. [Because Common Sense Gun Control!] This means that in order to possess an air pistol in public one must obtain a rather difficult to acquire permit to carry. Neither the filmmaker nor Bellario had a permit.

According to the article, despite explaining to police officers that he was filming a scene, Bellario was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a weapon. Bellario was forced to spend 4 days in Middlesex County jail before his girlfriend acquired $10,000 for bail with the help of a bondsman. With the impending legal expenses, Bellario has established a gofundme account to help pay for his defense. Unlawful possession of an air pistol is a third degree felony punishable by 3-5 years in prison.  [Because Common Sense Gun Control!]

Wow, so much “common sense” there as the public is being protected from the menace of actors wielding air pistols.

Overrated Literature

Posted by V the K at 11:13 am - January 30, 2016.
Filed under: Writing

I have an idea for a story I want to write. I’m calling it ‘The Time-Traveler’s Boyfriend.’ It will be my first stab at LGBT genre fiction. It was inspired by The Time-Traveler’s Wife‘ which is a book that won oodles of awards and I was actually excited to read until I actually read it and it turned out to be a mawkish, ham-fisted soap opera.

“I can do better than this,” I thought, and I came up with an idea for countering the “Time-Travelers Wife’ with something that would be cheeky and fun, rather than cruel and tragic.

I also realized that a lot of the book would be set in 1970′s San Francisco. Knowing not much about the city (been there maybe a half-dozen times) and little about the era, I began looking for source material, and came upon recommendations for Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City, which I was told was The Seminal Work of gay literature in that period. I Kindled a copy.

It sucked.

The barrier for classic gay literature is even lower than the bar for Feminist Scifi.

There’s barely any plot, just a series of cliches. Most of the book is just snatches of dialog, often without attribution so you can’t tell which character is talking. The Michael Tolliver character who is supposed to be one of the greatest gay characters in literature does nothing but make catty chatter and sleep around. The rest of the characters are ciphers that Ayn Rand would have found shallow and monodimensional.

So, the upshot is… I read one book that I was told was great but actually sucked. This led me to read another book I was told was great but actually sucked.

Sad puppies, I totally get it now.
