Things It Is OK to Say About Some People But Not Others

Obama/Hillary-supporter and Progressive Left Cultural icon Lena Dunham calls for the eradication of straight white men, because it would make the human race better if they were all gone.

Last night, she tweeted a video featuring her voice asking a man how he feels “about the extinction of white men”

The man in the clip says, “well, white men are a problem … white straight men are a big problem, that’s for sure.”

“But I actually feel pretty good about it, I think straight white guys have been screwing things for long enough,” adding: “High time for straight white males to step back and let some other people do it.”

Is this another one of those, “Hey, guys, it’s just a joke” things? If so, can I “joke” in the same way about the extinction of Muslims, or people who back into parking spaces, or some other group of people? Would that be okay?

George Will: #SadRepublican

George Will — who some of you may recognize as a token “conservative commentator” the Democrat Media Complex likes to  have on panels with 3 or 4 liberals — is very sad thar the Republican nominee is Donald Trump. So sad is George Will that he not only wants Trumpy to lose, he wants Trump to lose in a devastating electoral landslide that probably loses the House and Senate, too…. and also takes down talk radio forever. Because such a loss will reassert the power of the Washington Establishment and shut up those peasants in the countryside with their stupid yearning for change.

“Mrs. Clinton may win by four (percentage) points, but well over 300 electoral votes. That would help the Republicans,” Will theorized. “The Republican Party has to do several things. First, it has to somehow emancipate itself from its thralldom to the indignation industry of talk radio and certain cable personalities that I think have a paralyzing effect on the party when it tries to deal with things like immigration.”

Without talk radio, the GOP would have passed the “Amnesty Now/Border Security Later (Maybe… Or Maybe We’ll Just Forget About Border Security Once We Have Amnesty Like We Have Done Every Other Time Before)” Comprehensive Immigration Reform bills championed by George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Like the rest of the Republican Establishment, George Will does not think the concerns raised by the “Basket of Deplorables” who are voting for Trump are legitimate. Their concern about the hollowing out of middle America … not legitimate. Their concern about the unchecked flood of immigrants and their effects on low-skilled job wages, schools, and welfare systems…. completely illegitimate. Their concern that Washington DC has become a cozy, cronyist cabal of politicians, lobbyists, donors, and media? Not legitimate at all.

Like most of the GOP, Will thinks that the Trump phenomenon is entirely based on personality and “racist/sexist/xenophobic” rhetoric that excites a certain stupid portion of the electorate who will all go back to eating the excrement sandwiches the GOP will provide once Trump is gone.

You know what else George Will doesn’t like? Blue Jeans.

Denim is the infantile uniform of a nation in which entertainment frequently features childlike adults (“Seinfeld,” “Two and a Half Men”) and cartoons for adults (“King of the Hill”). Seventy-five percent of American “gamers” — people who play video games — are older than 18 and nevertheless are allowed to vote. In their undifferentiated dress, children and their childish parents become undifferentiated audiences for juvenilized movies (the six — so far — “Batman” adventures and “Indiana Jones and the Credit-Default Swaps,” coming soon to a cineplex near you). Denim is the clerical vestment for the priesthood of all believers in democracy’s catechism of leveling — thou shalt not dress better than society’s most slovenly. To do so would be to commit the sin of lookism — of believing that appearance matters. That heresy leads to denying the universal appropriateness of everything, and then to the elitist assertion that there is good and bad taste.

Denim is the carefully calculated costume of people eager to communicate indifference to appearances. But the appearances that people choose to present in public are cues from which we make inferences about their maturity and respect for those to whom they are presenting themselves.

(Which calls to mind an episode of WKRP in Cincinnati from the 1970s)

The War on Men

The Democrat-Run college campuses of the United States have made a conscious decision to become hostile environments for males.

On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more.

“How has the concept of masculinity contributed to the perpetration of violence in our society?” asks the UNC Men’s Project website.

Duke University started a program this semester for male students to reflect on topics such as patriarchy, male privilege, rape culture, pornography, machismo and “the language of dominance,” Fox News reported.

At a mandatory freshmen orientation training at Gettysburg College in August, male students had to watch a documentary which stated in part that the “three most destructive words” a boy can hear growing up is “be a man.”

The “Thrive” club, part of the Claremont colleges consortium which meets as a “safe space” to talk about mental health, advertises that “masculinity can be extremely toxic to our mental health, both to the people who are pressured to preform it and the people who are inevitably influenced by it.”

Women, of course, are never taught to self-criticize or self-examine, for they are blameless, holy creatures, who are never wrong.  And because women are never in error, any setback or disappointment ever suffered by any woman anywhere is entirely the fault of The Patriarchy, unless her name is Sarah Palin (who doesn’t count because she’s a Republican who didn’t abort her Down’s Syndrome baby).

Maybe men will be better off if fewer of us go to college and opt for trade school. We will learn actual skills, be employable, and not saddled with a mortgage worth of debt.

Left-Winger Admits: Yes, There Is a Democrat-Media Complex

Self-proclaimed leftie Ken Silverstein agrees with me that the Democrat Party and the Mainstream Media are parts of the same machine.

“All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should be believed,” I.F. Stone once wrote. “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations,” said George Orwell. For those two self-evident reasons, being “oppositional” is the only place political journalists should ever be, no matter who is in power or who is campaigning.

All during the campaign we have watched Hillary Clinton rehearse campaign themes and, almost as if by magic, the media amplifying those themes in seeming lockstep. The hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta have demonstrated that this was not mere happenstance, but, at least in part, resulted from direct coordination between the Clintonistas and the press.

There’s more… so much more.  He questions, for example, why Donald’s expressed admiration for Vladimir Putin is worse than Hillary’s well-documented coziness with the Saudis. I would answer, how many acts of terror on American soil have been committed by Russians?

His column is not just a rehash of the MFM’s well-documented cheerleading for Hillary and relentless attacks on Donald. He digs deeper, and discusses how the same incestuous relationships between wealthy donors, big financial interests, and dynastic power structures that have corrupted the political system have also corrupted the journalists who were supposed to be the watchdogs against a corrupt political system.

But I think he overlooks one of the reasons why this is, why there is an entrenched, insular political and media elite that are oblivious… indeed, contemptuous… of middle America. There is almost no chance for anyone with a working or middle class background to get a position in Big Media. Apart from lack of connections, a gig with a major news outfit requires working an unpaid internship in the most expensive cities in America…. New York or Washington. No one from a middle class background can afford that.

Read thou the whole thing.
