And That’s How You Get Senator Kid Rock

We are in a culture war. The left has been deploying full arsenal… lies, deceit, attacks, and more recently actual violence… while the right has played nice. Evan Sayet explains why nice ain’t cutting it any more.

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.
So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights.

It’s like I have been saying, before you attack Donald Trump and the “alt-right,” consider what the GOP Establishment and the old right have accomplished in the last 20 years. They got us into wars they never intended to win and spent money they never intended to pay back. Meanwhile, the radical left took over the media, the schools, the bureaucracy and the courts. It doesn’t matter whether the Republicans were collaborating with the radical left or merely wimping out to them; the result was the same.

Our only option to preserve liberty is to fight back. It is sad that it has come to this.

Exactly What I’ve Been Saying

Mark Steyn agrees with me, the only reason the left has to remake classic white male characters into trendy new genders and races is because the left utterly lacks the creativity to create new compelling characters.

I do regard this sort of thing as, to coin a phrase, cultural appropriation – in the sense that what our age mostly does is appropriate the cultural creations of greater talents and make them into something other. The Mighty Thor becomes a woman, Spider-Man turns Afro-Hispanic, Green Lantern goes gay; even in the Archie comics, Archie dies taking a bullet for his gay best friend, and Jughead comes out as asexual.

The clever thing is to create Archie (as Vic Bloom and Bob Montana did in 1941) and Captain America and Iceman, and turning them into modular furniture to be repositioned round the room at will – now female, now gay, now Hispanic – is an achievement of a considerably lesser order. As Brendan O’Neill points out, it’s also shallow – although very suited to an age in which Facebook offers you a choice of 50 gender identities.

And when the ratings tank, they’ll blame misogyny. It almost makes you think the writers are building a cushion to excuse poor performance. Blaming the prejudices of the audience is easier than admitting you’re a hack.

It must suck to be Out

Is “Out Magazine” the home of depressed, dour scolds? They’ve been popping that way lately, but you be the judge.

First, they laid it on thick about Milo’s supposed low book sales:

Nobody is Buying Milo Yiannopoulos’ Memoir, Dangerous…

In today’s fake news, alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos is claiming his book, Dangerous, has sold more than 100,000 copies.

The problem with that number is that it’s not real. Nielsen Bookscan, which monitors book sales through almost all outlets, has reported book sales for the former Breitbart editor are much, much lower. Since launching on July 4, Dangerous has sold 18,268 copies in the US and 152 in the UK…

A google search shows other left-wing outlets, like Salon and The Guardian, joining in the schadenfreude.

The problem is, their numbers are shaky. Milo is selling fine. He’s entering the best-seller lists at anywhere from #5 to #1; the first 100k run is spoken for and they’re printing more; Amazon has to ship his book slow (when they even have it). As to the 152 UK copies, the book isn’t even on sale there; a minimum of 152 UK buyers paid for international shipping. Fake News, indeed.

Next, via Breitbart, Out Magazine Encourages Readers to ‘Drop’ Gay Republican Friends

“We drop friends all the time for a whole variety of reasons—they messed with our loves lives, they lied, they weren’t supportive—so why do some people think it’s such an outlandish idea to dump them for their political views?” asked actor, singer, and writer Michael Musto in his column for OUT Magazine…

Musto goes on to admit that his social media experience has been more “gratifying” since he’s decided to block any user who disagrees with him…

Here’s a clue for you, Out: By all means, drop us. Here on the liberty-loving Right, we do believe in freedom of association – and we won’t miss you in the least 😉

Fun with polls

You remember how in 2016, Establishment pollsters would over-sample Democrats to conclude that Hillary was “ahead” and “a lock to win”.

The charitable interpretation is cognitive dissonance: the Establishment simply couldn’t believe that Trump had real support, and accordingly, their pollsters adjusted-down his numbers. A cynic would go further, saying the Establishment pollsters were out to drag Hillary across the finish line by making her seem inevitable (depressing Republican voters).

Either way, Breitbart says they’re still at it.

…a Washington Post/ABC News poll show[s] Mr. Trump’s approval ratings languishing at 36 per cent…

The poll was performed by AbtAssociates…[whose] board members include former [staffers of] Bob Dole, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood, World Bank, and Deloitte…

WaPo/ABC polling obviously predicted the U.S. election incorrectly…

Since this time last year they have over-represented Democrat voters in their studies. For this latest one, 35 per cent of their respondents were Democrats, 23 per cent were Republicans, 35 per cent were Independents (who in turn lean towards voting Democrat)…

[other] demographic questions they asked are not included in the data…[except it’s clear that] Young cell phone users made up the dominant part of the poll, and cell phone-only households made up nearly half the interviews.

So, the poll was skewed to younger, trendy Democrats. Yet this same poll still shows the Democrats’ weak appeal:

…just 37 per cent of respondents think the Democrat Party “stands for something” while 52 per cent say they simply stand against Trump. WaPo buried this in paragraph 12 of 19 while CNN didn’t mention it at all.

Breitbart’s article goes on to quote the late Christopher Hitchens at length, about how polling is a racket and the power elite’s tool to manipulate public debate (for example, stigmatizing certain leaders or viewpoints as “unpopular”).

P.S. – Related vaguely: I don’t follow Bret Easton Ellis much but apparently, he and his boyfriend (who are hardly conservatives) are sick of Fake News and equally, sick of liberals who make no sense because they never get outside their bubble.

My dinner partner on Saturday said she had never heard that Comey admitted the NY Times had gotten a series of stories wrong. She thought I had made that up. When I told her the world isn’t this — gesturing around the dark opulence of The Sunset Tower — and that the divide is real, she dismissed it with Trump’s approval ratings without acknowledging the media’s approval ratings are lower than Trump’s. She pointed out that MSNBC was killing it in the ratings and I told her that Maddow and Hannity are basically neck-and-neck any given night–and yet I was thinking, ‘I don’t watch either one!’ So why am I even engaging in this?”

Is CNN’s Don Lemon an agent of Vladimir Putin??

Scott Adams pointed this out.

  • Don Lemon is said to like vodka (Russian) martinis with a lemon twist. He could have chosen a different TV name but he went with Lemon to dog-whistle the link.
  • Don Lemon has never released his tax returns! How do we know he’s not getting Russian payments? There’s no evidence that he has, but what are we supposed to think? How do we know he hasn’t? What is he hiding?
  • Lemon has interviewed Russian nationals – as part of his job, even! There was value exchanged – it’s beyond question that Lemon met with Russians, intending for them to help him in his job. So what if nothing came of it? It’s all about his intent.
  • Lemon has never filled out any forms which would disclose his Russian contacts and collusion! Why not? Has he lied, in claiming to be a loyal American? Looks that way. Can we believe anything he says?

With that much smoke, there’s gotta be a fire. We must investigate Don Lemon immediately, and exhaustively.

Because we could easily find something out that we don’t know, now. He could be committing treasonous crimes that we’ve just seen no indication of, yet. After all, Lemon has failed to call for a war with Russia. Isn’t he obviously serving Putin’s interests?

Doctor Who Gets Ghostbusted

The producers of Doctor Who have decided that the next iteration of the titular character will be… oh, what is the PC term… a person with a vagina. This is pretty much what happened after the announcement.

Feminists and Beta Male Nerds: “OMG, Dr. Who is going to be a woman. This is the most awesomest thing in the history of scifi TV.”

Me (and others): “Whatever, it really depends on the quality of the writing and how they develop the character. If it becomes a boring social justice lecture, I’m not interested.”

Feminists and Beta Male Nerds: “OMG! Your male fragility can’t handle a woman in the role of The Doctor! It’s driving you crazy! We drink your tears, penis-bearer!”

One thing is for sure; if the audience for the show declines, the producers can now blame their losses on misogyny. And probably Russian meddling.

In other news of no consequence: DC Comics Reboots Snagglepuss as ‘Gay, Southern Gothic Playwright.’

What a stupid time to be alive.

Filed under: Climate Change (Global Warming)

An Australian member of the Academic Caste is saying that in order to fight Global Warmening, we (meaning you) are going to have to give up property rights.

Western Sydney University Researcher Louise Crabtree, writing for The Conversation, thinks in a world torn by climate disasters ownership of private property may have to be sacrificed, to be replaced by a system of housing cooperatives or a roaming right to reside.

Reminds me a bit of that bit of utopian fantasy about the world of the future where there is no privacy, and no one owns anything, because magic. Ms. Crabtree’s thesis is in the interest of ‘Climate Change,’ we will have to change (i.e. abandon) our notion of private property in favor of that used by “indigenous peoples” (i.e. people who lived as nomadic hunter-gatherers with life spans of 30 before they appropriated elements of European civilization). “Some say that First Peoples might have a grasp of property dynamics that is more suited to the times we are entering,” she writes. I have a sneaking suspicion who this “Some” who are saying this is.

So, this Louise Crabtree must be a professor of some form of science relating to the Earth’s complex systems of climate and weather, right? Nope. Well, she must be an economist, right? Nope, wrong again.

Louise was awarded her PhD in Human Geography from Macquarie University in 2007 and has been with Western Sydney University since 2007. Her research focuses on the social, ecological and economic sustainability of community-driven housing developments in Australia; on the uptake of housing innovation in practice and policy; on complex adaptive systems theory in urban contexts; and, on the interfaces between sustainability, property rights, institutional design and democracy. Her recent and ongoing projects focus on two practical areas funded by a series of competitive research grants—community land trusts and participatory mapping methodologies. Both are being used to simultaneously foster social innovation and equity outcomes on the ground, and explore and build theory on multi-stakeholder governance, decolonisation, property law, resilience and citizenship.

So, she lives on piles of burning Government grant money is trying to link her pseudo-scientific field to climate change in hopes of getting more grant money. And it will probably work.

Does this concept that property rights must give way to the ‘Common Good’ sound at all familiar?

“The theory of Communism may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.” – Karl Marx, Communist Manifesto.

Anybody wanna try and claim that ‘Climate Change’ isn’t a cover for instituting global Marxism?
