Why Sally Kohn *Loves* Identity Politics

Sally Kohn loves her some identity politics.

In poll after poll [Note: No citation for these polls] most Americans embrace the gains won by identity politics. We should expand support, not abandon pluralist agenda.

Let’s be honest; in a world without identity politics, Sally Kohn would just be another dull-witted leftist, at best teaching at a community college. She has never said or written anything remotely interesting or original that would merit any loftier position. (I’d suggest she could “work” as a Diversity Coordinator, but a world without identity politics would also be a world without stupid bureaucratic make-work jobs for people with no valid skillsets.)

In a world with identity politics, she’s “The Official Media Spokeswoman for the LGBTQ Community,” with a fat contract for doing nothing more than spewing Democrat Party Talking Points and assuring white heterosexual liberals that all gay people agree with them.

And there are many, many like her in the Democrat Party and Democrat Media Complex.

A study in contrasts

Two black women support LEGAL immigration (as do I), border security and Donald Trump. About a year ago they felt angry – and expressed themselves peacefully. (h/t CrayCrayPatriot for telling me about them)

That’s good.

Now for the contrast: Shamefully, two black men this week beat up a (perceived? real or imagined?) Trump voter. (h/t Zero Hedge and InfoWars)

That’s a disgrace.

The difference here isn’t race. Isn’t era. Isn’t oppression-privilege “experience” or dynamics. Isn’t anger level. Probably isn’t even gender, all that much (since some women do fight, and many men don’t).

The key difference is IDEAS – and MORAL CHARACTER.

As Aristotle is supposed to have said:

Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.

Exit question: Are Hillary or President Obama out there, telling people in no uncertain terms to calm down and accept the election’s outcome? (If yes: I’m glad, and feel free to post the link in the comments.)

UPDATE: Via ZH, a high school girl is attacked (by another high school girl) for supporting Trump. Pathetic!

Urban Hipster Leftists and Their Obsession with Diversity Pokemon

Posted by V the K at 9:26 pm - November 10, 2016.
Filed under: Identity Politics

One consensus emerging from the election of 2016 is that a major factor in the election of Donald Trump was that insular political and media operatives living in New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles have become so out-of-touch with voters in the rest of America that the voters have repudiated them. Hillary lost because the Democrat priorities of Climate Change, transgender bathrooms, gun control, and mass immigration are completely disconnected from the concerns of voters in states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin and that is why Newsweek had to recall the entire press run of its “Madam President” issue.

But then, one hispter urban liberal, a certain Patrick Thornton who works as “Director of User Experience” for Roll Call’swebsite, defends the coastal urban bubble, declaring, “We urban coastal elites are awesome, it’s those hicks in the provinces that need to be more like us.”

I’m going to cut to the chase because the guy is a flaming twit. The crux of his argument is that urban coastal elites are better (“more American”) than people in flyover country (which he says is a wonderful place to visit, and he always tells his hip urban friends that all the time, but it’s just not, you know, a cool place to live because the people are so stupid and backward) because they have friends from other races, cultures, and sexualities. And this … thisis what makes them better.

In many of these areas, the only Muslims you see are in movies like “American Sniper.” (I knew zero Muslims before going to college in another state.) You never see gay couples or even interracial ones. Much of rural and exurban American is a time capsule to America’s past.

The first gay person I knew personally was my college roommate — a great man who made me a better person. But that’s an experience I would have never had if I didn’t go to college and instead decided to live the rest of my life in my hometown.

More Americans need to see more of the United States. They need to shake hands with a Muslim, or talk soccer with a middle aged lesbian, or attend a lecture by a female business executive.

First of all, he makes the typical arrogant liberal assumption that only hip urban liberals have friends who “represent diversity.” But the really nasty part is he doesn’t see people as people. He, like a lot of other urban hipster liberals, sees them as cards in a game of Diversity Pokemon. “Look, I have a lesbian soccer mom, an interracial gay couple, an undocumented immigrant and… Oooh… this one is non-binary transgender person of color who uses non-standard pronouns, that makes xyr extra valuable.”

Ya gotta catch ‘em all, I guess.

I just can’t get on board with that mentality of looking at other people as trophies whose presence in my collection confirms my virtue and status; it’s kind of gross.

On a closing note, I am from the Midwest, I lived in the National Capital Region for twelve miserable years. People in that area fancy themselves more sophisticated, and more important than people anywhere else in the country. They are by and large horrid, arrogant, and obnoxious people and I happy as Hell that I don’t have to live there any more. Having a Pokemon collection filled with gays, foreigners and trannies doesn’t make you a better person. It just makes you an arrogant leftist twit with a Human Pokemon collection.

FBI: Omar Mateen Didn’t Hate Gay People

Isn’t this wonderful news? It means the 49 people he murdered weren’t victims of a hate crime.

“While there can be no denying the significant impact on the gay community, the investigation hasn’t revealed that he targeted pulse because it was a gay club,” a U.S. law enforcement official told The Post.

According to the report, federal investigators have combed through Mateen’s computer and other electronic footprints in an effort to determine what motivated the attack. Thus far, the review has revealed nothing to support assertions that the attack was motivated by homophobia or that Mateen was gay.

This means we can downgrade this attack from a horrible hate crime to a mere mass-murder.

I mean, yeah, Omar Mateen may have hated the people he murdered for being part of Western Civilization, but he didn’t hate them for being gay.

We’ll save the “Hate Crime” label for the real monsters: People who don’t want to bake cakes for gay weddings.

Sausage-Waving Neo-Nazis Attack Vegan Cafe

Or Something.

The owners of a vegan cafe in the country of Georgia say group of neo-Nazis started throwing grilled meat at patrons.  It happened over the weekend at the Kiwi Cafe in the capital city of Tbilisi.

The cafe was holding an English-language movie screening when the group came in and started the violence.

They pulled out grilled meat, sausages, fish and started eating them and throwing them at customers before starting to smoke, which is forbidden at the cafe.

Also, in news of crazy-stuff-that-cannot-ever-happen-here-yet, a school in the area once known as Great Britain has banned playground whistles on the grounds that the noise may traumatize children. I am not making this up.

People in the Real World Less Insane than Feminists

You may recall some months ago when the Feminist Left threw a collective hissy-fit-tantrum-storm-PMS-overcharge because a scientist who had just landed a space probe on a comet shamelessly wore a shirt with a pattern of attractive women on it. Suddenly, a bunch of women who lack the technical competence to parallel park were attacking a guy who just landed a freakin’ space probe on a freakin’ comet over a fashion choice they disagreed with.

To the feminist and the Progressive Left Media Complex, his shirt was an outrageous attack on women and would somehow discourage young girls from ever pursuing a career in the sciences; because someday a penis-bearer might wear such a shirt to the lab at which point the strong capable feminist scientist would be triggered and reduced to a sobbing wreck.

Anyway, fast forward to now, and a guy who wondered “What would happen if I wore such a shirt in an environment populated by normal people?”

I wore the shirt to the family-friendly Food & Wine Festival at Busch Gardens, a Tampa-area theme park. I was hoping to get a rise out of people, to see offended scowls, muttering tones of disapproval, or even outright confrontation. I saw none of this. There wasn’t a single scowl, muttered remark, or disapproving glance. The shirt did, however, receive a number of compliments, an enthusiastic vote of approval from a few tattooed bikers, and joy from one of the park workers who actually recognized Elly Prizeman’s work for what it was and was thrilled to see the shirt that launched the shirtstorm in person.

The lesson from this little social experiment is that radical feminism, while it controls media, college campuses, and has a strong voice in government, has little impact on the sensibilities of the common man.

The other lesson is that radical feminists are nucking futs.

Another “Hate Crime” That Wasn’t Actually a “Hate Crime”

The Gay Left Hype Machine eagerly hyped an incident at a Barbecue joint in New York City as “gay bash hate crime” because…. well, you know… playing the victim is very politically valuable to the Gay Left. But, as usual, another piece of evidence that Cis-Normative America is a nightmarish miasma of anti-gay violence has crumbled to dust in their dainty, well-manicured hands.

A Bronx man bashed a gay couple over the head with a chair inside a Chelsea BBQ joint after one of the men smacked him in the face with his purse, prosecutors said Tuesday at his Manhattan assault trial.

Yeah, only one problem… the accused gay basher “not only is gay but has been active in the LGBT community for more than 19 years.”

So, the “Hate Crime” turns out to be nothing but a drunken bar brawl between over-emotive drama queens.

The left will go on hating America (but not leaving), because they don’t really need evidence that their hatred is justified. They just need a Narrative with a lot of drama in which they are victims and everyone who disagrees with them is evil.

Not making this up.

Asked “can paedophiles actually change?”, the expert wrote: “I believe Paedophilic Disorder is a sexual orientation with individual that are attracted to child features. In other words, an individual with paedophilia has the same ingrained attraction that a heterosexual female may feel towards a male, or a homosexual feels towards their same gender. 

Gee, it’s a good thing the socialist left doesn’t make a habit of normalizing and mainstreaming deviant sexual practices.

It is my understanding that according to Rule 46 of the Lefty Comment Troll Handbook that anyone who does not explicitly and vigorously denounce the opinion expressed in the linked article can be accused of fully agreeing with it; just as someone who does not constantly denounce each and every occurrence of anti-gay violence (by non-Mohammedans) can be accused of supporting anti-gay violence.

Just for the record, I reject and condemn any effort to normalize and mainstream paedophilia or tolerance of paedophilia, as should be clear from the context.  And I’m not a supporter of anti-gay violence either; except for obnoxious left-wing gay activists who incite violence and hatred, seek to deny other people their rights, and frankly deserve to get punched in the face.

In Progressive, Enlightened New York City, the city council has told police to stand down on enforcing laws against public urination. Because, apparently, holding all people to the expectation of not urinating in public is “RAYCISS!”

“We know that the system has been really rigged against communities of color in particular,” council member Melissa Mark-Viverito, a Democrat (of course – Ed.), told the Times. “So the question has always been, what can we do in this job to minimize unnecessary interaction with the criminal justice system, so that these young people can really fulfill their potential?”

On Monday, Mark-Viverito and other council members will introduce a set of bills called the Criminal Justice Reform Act. The laws are designed to make several quality-of-life laws much more toothless. Misdemeanor crimes to be nearly-but-not-quite decriminalized include public urination, excessive noise, drinking in public, marijuana possession and miscellaneous public park-related infractions.

From this…

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

… to con artists like Shaun King pretending to be black because it’s a lucrative hustle.

… to race hustlers like Ta-Nehisi Coates growing wealthy pandering to white guilt and demanding, not reconciliation, but vengeance.

…. to pathetic whining that there aren’t enough Oscar nominations for black people.

… to a black president and his entire party embracing divisive racial rhetoric because it is politically advantageous to do so.

… to a city with a black mayor, a majority black city council, and a majority black police force that still blames white people for all of their troubles.

… to spoiled young black women pitching obscenity-laden hissy fits about emails about Halloween costumes.

… to whining that it’s racist for white people to cook collard greens with peanuts. (I am not making this up.)

I used to think that Millennials would be the generation that moved past racism and identity politics. Sadly, it looks like the Millennials are even more obsessed than their insane, Baby Boomer forebearers. What the hell happened?

Update: USA Today’s Racial Self-Flagellation: “Whites Killed Martin Luther King. Now We Honor Him.” Really? All white people everywhere conspired to kill Martin Luther King? Does this mean all Black people raped Bill Cosby’s women? Whatever, dude.

The Left’s playbook explained

It’s well-understood that the Left in America (indeed, the West in general) prefers to silence rather than to engage their political or intellectual counterparts. From speech codes to shutting down pizza shops that don’t hew to their ideology to barring campus speakers who don’t Think Properly (let alone the things they say!).

So it’s no surprise to anybody that, rather than challenging Donald Trump’s position on immigration, groups like Deport Racism are calling on audience members at this week’s upcoming NBC broadcast of SNL to disrupt the production and shout things at the Republican candidate. And no less a group than the Congressional Hispanic Caucus has asked NBC to simply not even have him on the show.

It’s a meme about the Left that they will have no truck with any sort of dissent to the end that any other opinions are verboten from conception; a meme as ubiquitous as its examples, and as exasperating to have to point out as the question, “Can you imagine if a Republican had said that?!”

But it’s not often that you can see on display the next stinky layer of the onion right in the same place. This is the video that the same group, Deport Racism has produced as there, um, rejoinder?

Indoctrinated foul-mouthed children yelling dirty words at a grown man, while surely ‘cute’ to many members of the Left’s base, also go a long way to explaining why shutting down opposing thoughts is the weapon of choice for Progressives:

Yet Another Fake Hate Crime

The owner of a gay bar tried to hide insurance fraud behind a fake hate crime.

Prosecutors said Elliott doused the bar in alcohol, wrote gay slurs on the wall, then lit it on fire.

Previously, the owner played the victim card to the hilt.

The club’s owner, Frank Elliot, said earlier that he believed the blaze was suspicious because derogatory messages were scrawled on the wall inside the burned-out club. Authorities were seen removing a piece of concrete wall and loading it onto a truck.

“I’m beyond shocked,” said Elliott, 25. “I have nothing.”

“My stomach has been in knots since 6:30 this morning,” Elliott told WGN-TV. “My whole life, everything that I’ve worked for … my whole life is on the line and I don’t know what to think or even begin with.”

Social leftists are dupes and victimhood is lucrative.

In Closing, Caitlyn and Sideshow Flozell

Posted by V the K at 5:32 pm - June 16, 2015.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends,Identity Politics

If you had to pick a single person to epitomize Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the USA, you could not do better than Caitlyn Jenner, who once achieved feats that brought the admiration of the entire world, but has chosen to become an emasculated, celebrity-chasing joke.

But Rachel Dolezal (a.k.a ‘Sideshow Flozell’) comes a pretty damn close second.

11393158_10152935869756700_2077593722813386203_n

“I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon,” she told Matt Lauer.

Whether her race-fluidity is a cynical exploitation of an academic and political culture that favors dark skinned people, a reflection of deep mental illness, or just an extreme example of a white person appropriating what respected social anthropologist Cher called “black cool,” it is striking that her effforts to change her identity have been not as universally lauded by the social progressive left as Caitlyn Jenner’s. (Although some leftists are willing to support Dolezal’s delusion.)

The Mister says that gender reassignment should be thought of as a form of therapy. If so, it is the only form of therapy I know that involves validating a psychological delusion. Well, that and telling women who haven’t really been raped that it’s totally okay for them to believe they were raped and even seek retribution against the men who didn’t rape them but could have.

Once it’s been decided that some delusions should be indulged, where do you draw the line between what to indulge and what not to indulge? Is it as simple

One of the reasons transgenderism is impressed is because the progressive left is highly Freudian and will eagerly embrace anything that seems kinky and pushes the envelope of hedonistic self-indulgence; although very few progressive left men would hook-up with Caitlyn Jenner given the chance.

Transgenderism is also accepted simply because of technology; chemical and medical procredures exist that make it possible to mutilate the male form into a crude facsimile of the female form and vice versa. This creates something of a dilemma for progressive leftists who embrace gender fluidity but are uncomfortable with race fluidity since surgically altering features and chemically altering skin tone to more resemble those of another race are also possible. So, it is not merely a matter of “what science can do.”

Also, transgenderism is attractive because it subverts The Patriarchy. Allowing people to decide their own racial identity, on the other hand, undermines the leftist coalition. Nothing could quite smash the whole culture of affirmative action and race preferences like millions of “trans-racial” Caucasians suddenly coming out of the closet as black and demanding that their identity be respected and that they be given access to scholarships, educational opportunities, and jobs set aside for minorities.

Above all, the fixation on Caitlyn Jenner and Flozell of Spokane at a time when Chinese hackers are stealing state secrets with impunity; when the Chinese, Iranians, and Russians are laughing at our military; when our economy is being sustained only by massive Government borrowing (that can go on forever, right?) shows that, as a culture, we no longer care about Serious Things. We have lost sight of what matters, and instead are locked into a cycle of self-validation through self-gratification and fixation on frivolous identity culture.

Was the Dude Who Wrecked the Train an LGBT Activist?

Posted by V the K at 7:41 am - May 14, 2015.
Filed under: Identity Politics

All I know is my gut says “maybe.”

Brandon Bostian is the 32-year-old gay man who lawyered up after a deadly derailment in Philadelphia. The train was reportedly going twice the speed limit.

Bostian is a gay activist who previously worked at Target as a cashier before joining Amtrak, according to his LinkedIn.

The train hurtled off the tracks after making a left-turn at high speed; much like the USA under Obama.

And according to Democrats, the derailment was not caused by Bostian lead-footing the train to 106 MPH nine minutes after leaving the station like it was the DeLorean in ‘Back to the Future,’ but instead by Republicans unwilling to double AMTRAK’s $1.6 Billion annual subsidy to $3.2 Billion, or whatever else they’d like to spend so they can hire more gay Target cashiers to pilot choo-choo trains.

“While he is still interested in working for marriage equality, Bostian admitted that he is less enthusiastic this time around. “It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry,” he said. “I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight.””

Lefists Fret About Offending Those Who Want to Kill Them

So, it’s OK for feminists to claim that all men are morally responsible for the rapes committed by a tiny number of men. It is also OK to claim that all white people have white privilege and all white people owe all black people reparations for slavery. But to suggest all Muslims should take a moral stand against terrorism is… according to those same people… racist.

SRSLY, how does that work?

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, the primary concern of left-wing media was not that violent Mohammedans would commit more acts of violence against innocent people, but that “anti-Islamic” sentiment might increase and, even more terrible, right-wing political parties in Europe might benefit!

The New York Times @nytimes

The key danger the Times is worried about, it would seem, is that Europe might reverse course on its march to demographic and cultural oblivion.
