Dispatches from the Culture Wars

Let’s take the hypothetical cases of Billy, Alex, and Fatima. All of them are pre-teen children living in blue-state America.

Billy has just started puberty and thinks he may be attracted to other boys. Billy’s parents are deeply religious and concerned about this both for religious reasons and because they don’t want to see him ending up as the featured sling-bottom at a bareback chemsex party, and they would like him to talk to a therapist about changing his orientation or behavior. Current social status: Billy’s parents are worse than Hitler and what they want to do is illegal.

Alex has begun painting his nails, dyeing his hair pink, and told his mom he wants to be a girl. Alex’s mom immediately found a doctor who’ll be happy to begin flooding his body with artificial hormones to thwart the natural process of puberty so that when he turns eighteen, he can have breast implants and his genitalia mutilated into a crude facsimile of a cervix. Current social status: Alex’s mom is the toast of her wine and book club ever since she announced, “Alex is becoming Alexa, and we are being totally supportive.” She pitched an article to the Huffington Post, but they said, “No thanks, we’ve fulfilled our quota of ‘Supportive Parents of Transgender Youth’ for this month.”

Fatima’s Mohammedan Somali-Immigrant parents want to have her genitalia ritualistically mutilated so that she can never enjoy sexual pleasure. Current social status: Approved and defended by the ACLU and feminist groups, because to oppose such a thing would be Islamophobic and racist.

And that’s where we are in the Culture Wars in America. Good night.

Did we just see Peak Trumprussia?

Like a market bubble popping, every mass hysteria hits a peak and reverses. But you can never predict when. You only recognize it in hindsight, because you never know how big the hysteria can grow. In this case, the Trump-Russia hysteria.

Hillary’s recent “Blame everyone but me” appearance is drawing bad reviews. Via Breitbart, Andrea Mitchell called Hillary a ‘conspiracy theorist’ for her Trumprussia allegations.

Mitchell did it while sitting in the chair of madcap conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow, no less. This is the same Andrea Mitchell who was visibly ready to lick Hillary’s boots, a year ago. When you’ve lost Andrea Mitchell…well, you still need to lose Mika Brzezinski among others. But it’s a start.

And former FBI Director James Comey’s appearance before Congress keeps getting delayed. Could it be a sign that the Trumprussia conspiracy theorists are having trouble with inventing their own facts and tampering with Comey’s testimony so it will align?

A recent kill shot on Hannity failed (as USAA has de-boycotted him). And it seems to me that left-wing rioters have been a tad quieter lately; perhaps frightened by what happened to Eric Clanton and/or the fact that Trump is still around. Finally, we have Kathy Griffin brouhaha in which she “went too far”, so that she even lost CNN.

Do these things mean that Ninth Thermidor is here, for the Trumprussian Democrats who have been running wild in these last several months? Or am I calling it too early?

UPDATE: More on Hillary’s interview, because it’s too wild to pass up. She keeps her title as The Biggest Liar Known to Humankind.

  • She claims that her e-mail scandal was “the biggest nothingburger ever.” It mattered only because The New York Times “covered it like it was Pearl Harbor.”

    “Well if you went all the way back, doing things that others have done before was no longer acceptable. I didn’t break any rule nobody said don’t do this. I was very responsible and not at all careless.”

    False. Clinton knowingly violated laws about classified material that have put other Americans in jail. She likely exposed the material to hackers. She then lied about it – and obstructed FBI investigators with large-scale, intentional destruction of evidence. Even former Director Comey, who let her off the hook, felt compelled to call her “extremely careless”.

  • Skipping over the plausible likelihood of Russia not having hacked the DNC, and the fact that the emails leaked from the DNC were genuine and showed and the DNC engaged in wrong-doing, Hillary asks the swamp-fever question, “How did [the Russians] know what [pro-Trump political] messages to deliver? Who told them? Who were they coordinating with or colluding with? …The Russians…could not have known how best to weaponize that information unless they had been guided by Americans.”
  • She alleges there were “1000 Russian agents…connected to the bots” at Facebook who somehow swayed voters.

    (Note: The reverse is probably true. For example, Google may have manipulated Autocomplete and search results to sway voters toward her, and YouTube and Facebook are rife with complaints of pro-Left, anti-Right censorship.)

  • Regarding her controversial speech at Goldman Sachs (that WikiLeaks exposed), her excuse for it is: Of course she did it, they paid her.

Tucker Carlson rightly eviscerates her as a Big Lie practitioner, proclaiming “a conspiracy so vast that she doesn’t need to prove it.”

I would like to know if her tech-professional audience was stunned by her poor performance, or nodded their heads in sympathy?

UPDATE:

The Neverending Clinton Whine and Sleaze Party

Posted by V the K at 4:39 am - June 1, 2017.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton

I didn’t vote for Donald Trump, but the more Hillary whines, complains, plays the victim, and blames everybody but herself for losing, the more I think we dodged a bullet.

Clinton, interviewed onstage in California at a tech conference by Recode’s Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg, made a point to say that she took responsibility for her campaign and “every choice” she made, as she has in other public appearances this year. “But,” she said, “that’s not why I lost.”

Clinton again argued that the letter former FBI Director James Comey sent to Congress about her private email server just more than a week before the election was what prompted her to lose critical ground at the end.

Comey wasn’t the only target of Clinton’s ire on Wednesday, though, as she assailed the news media for their coverage of the Comey controversy (reporters covered it like it was “Pearl Harbor,” she charged) and the campaign more broadly, citing a lack of substantive policy reporting on television.

The attitude toward her campaign, she posited, was a result of the assumption that she would defeat Donald Trump, and she said it hurt her.

Here’s a picture of the press corps on Hillary’s campaign plane. (The ‘Walking Dead’ extra in the white jacket is MSDNC’s Andrea Mitchell.) Yeah, they look like they were totally out to get her… elected.

Also, Hillary’s long-time companion Huma Abedin is apparently moving back in with her husband, Anthony “What do you think of my junk, underaged girl” Weiner. Kind of funny how neither one of them is the least bit bothered about being married to creeper, isn’t it?

Eric Clanton update

The Nutty Professor who was allegedly assaulting people with bike locks on behalf of Antifa, during those riots in Berkeley, and who was later arrested.

The update is, he has a lawyer. The lawyer loves “Brother Comrade Hugo Chavez” and “escalating the lack of peace” in America today.

Up against Tucker Carlson on TV, he claims that Clanton either wasn’t there at the riots, or wasn’t the one hitting people with bike locks, and anyway those nasty right-wingers deserved it.

Along the way, he also claims that the recent Portland killer, a documented Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein supporter, was right-wing. Lawyers!

Kathy Griffin fired, but is that enough?

CNN has fired Kathy Griffin from their next New Year’s Eve program. As V noted earlier, she posed for a so-called ‘artist’ with herself holding a blood-drenched, beheaded effigy of President Trump. In a single image, she managed to align herself with Islam (or ISIS imagery), Satanism (or satanic imagery), and assassination of the President of the United States.

To his minor credit, Anderson “Vanderbilt” Cooper tweeted “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.” (Minor because it’s something he should have done hours faster, and perhaps an understatement.)

It remains to be seen whether Hollywood and the Left will actually shun Griffin, or rehabilitate her once the dust settles? After all, the first reaction of a CNN panel (led by Jake Tapper) was a dismissive “We’ve got much bigger issues to focus on.”

And indeed, they do. After all, CNN is the Home of Fake News, such as:

  • proclaiming that Hillary is somehow healthy and a lock to win the election;
  • pushing the fake/scripted views of a seven year old as a serious reason for the U.S. to make war in Syria; and
  • pushing evidence-free, anonymously-sourced innuendo against Trump.

But maybe CNN’s dismissive, first reaction didn’t focus-group very well?

The whole thing got me thinking about denunciations in general. After all, conservatives and libertarians are supposed to denounce every little thing done by every little kook – or else we somehow are that thing. Recently,

  • Jacob Schwartz was arrested for child pornography. He isn’t a nobody. He is a longtime Democrat activist and staffer. His father is a huge Democrat donor and insider, having served as an Obama delegate and a lawyer for Bernie Sanders, the SEIU and ACORN (remember them?).

    Young-ish Jacob allegedly possessed graphic images of a 6-month old baby being raped. He was a top staffer to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Schwartz also appeared on Chris Cuomo’s program on CNN (them again!). Hillary’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, can be seen standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Schwartz – or at least he could, before Schwartz’s arrest triggered Democrats into disappearing the inconvenient photo.

    My question is, has Robby Mook denounced Schwartz, in no uncertain terms? Has Hillary Clinton? Or the DNC? Or CNN? Has Chris Cuomo indicated his regret at having Schwartz as a guest? I couldn’t find any such statements.

    Each of them, who has not yet done such a statement, therefore supports pedophiles and pedophilic rape – if we apply the Left’s usual logic about these things.

  • Marina Abramović is another left-wing “artist” who promotes imagery and practices that are awfully reminiscent of Satanism, with that Spirit Cooking thing she’s into.

    John Podesta is, of course, one of THE top Clintonites, as he was Hillary’s campaign chair and her preference for Secretary of State.

    It’s known that Podesta was invited, on warmly intimate terms, to a private Spirit Cooking “dinner” that his brother Tony probably attended, and which Podesta himself may have attended.

    Has either of the Podestas denounced Satanism, or at least Abramović? Has Hillary Clinton denounced either of the Podestas? I don’t think so.

    Again, apply the Left’s typical logic of you-are-clearly-for-that-bad-thing-if-we-don’t-agree-that-you-have-denounced-it-enough, and see where it would go, here.

  • And don’t get me started about Antifa – and the failure of many lefties to denounce their violence.

So, firing Kathy Griffin from a New Year’s Eve program that was going to happen in 7 more months: is that enough? Or should we call for more? If yes, what?

UPDATE: She says “I went too far, and I was wrong.”

Umm, “too far” in what? When I go too far, it’s because I love something. I ate too much chocolate or lemon pie. I tried to power clean too much weight. So, if Kathy “went too far” in making visible her fantasy of beheading the President and soaking his head in the blood, then deep in her soul, she loves…??? Something about this is still “off”.
