Michael Moore’s value to the left has faded since his anti-Bush propaganda film Fahrenheit 911. In the Obama Era, with socialists in charge of the Government, the responsibility for creating propaganda has passed to the mainstream media; who have happily taken up the cause. But it’s really tough for drama queens to deal with being out of the spotlight.
Once way for a faded has-been to get attention is to attach oneself to someone whose star is rising. So, Michael Moore held up a protest sign outside one of Donald Trump’s building and begged the news media to pay attention to him.
It’s only a matter of time before a dead screenwriter winds up dead in Michael Moore’s swimming pool; probably a non-union writer he refused to pay for his work.
Social Justice Warriors are spoiled brats, Science says so.
The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan blames the current campus tantrums on students who are taught to be “self-absorbed and narcissistic.” He’s on to something, according to Jean Twenge, who has reported an increase in narcissism among young people. Narcissists have inflated conceptions of themselves and feel entitled to special privileges, while at the same time they’re quite brittle — if anyone questions their wonderfulness, they quickly take offense and turn extremely aggressive. (Remind you of anyone?)
The article goes on to note that the majority of these narcissistic brats are females; princesses spoiled by a lifetime of being told they were special and wonderful and superior to boys in every way.
As more Millennial women enter their thirties, I recommend investing in cat food companies.
An alpha feminist kindergarten teacher in Washington State won’t allow boys to play with Legos in her classes, because feminism.
The Bainbridge Island Review reports that Karen Keller, a kindergarten teacher at Blakely Elementary, is tackling the issue of gender equity by not allowing the boys in her class to play with Legos.
“I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn,’” Keller told the Review. “And I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head.”
President Hillary will probably make her Secretary of Education.
Every day, CNN Commentator and Left-Wing Sapphist Sally Kohn must wake up and ask herself, “What incredibly stupid take on a current event should I offer on Twitter this morning.”
OK, so maybe the jihadists want us to make war on them. That’s only a problem if we lack the will to win, which is a topic for another discussion. Contrary to what the bubbleheaded bleach blond at Obama’s State Department thinks, ISIS and Al Qaeda are not motivated by a “lack of jobs.” They want to kill infidels. There are only two options; kill them or submit to them.
Her preferred response – Ignore terrorism and invite as many Mohammadans into Western Civilization as want to come here. because peace love and understanding – will only allow the jihadists opportunities to kill more infidels.
Her stance makes almost as much sense as the idea that you can stop criminals from shooting each other by taking guns away from responsible, law-abiding people. Which she also supports. Because guns are like toys, or something.
Milo Yiannopoulus has almost overtaken Lenore Skenazy as my most favorite difficult-to-spell social pundit.
When you start telling students that their feelings and their “lived experience” is more important than facts, it follows that they will consider their own aggravated sense of personal victimhood sufficient grounds for the resignation of college staff.
Shrieking and demanding outrageously over-the-top responses to the slightest of perceived insults is the only life today’s college students know. While Yale is going Maoist, Missouri students are going full Black Panther.
Read the whole damn thing.
People used to think I was being hyperbolic when I spoke of ‘the Fascist Left.’ I was not. The bullies at the University of Missouri have not only succeeded in removing the President and the Chancellor for being insufficiently radical, they have also blocked the press from speaking to the protesters. The reason for this should be fairly obvious; every time the public is exposed to the real hatred and radicalism that underlies the #BlackLivesMatter movement, they lose support. They cannot control their members, so they attempt to control access to them.
During the angry protests at the University of Missouri (“The President is insufficiently anti-racist, and this hurts our FEELINGS!”) a professor of mass media communication named Melissa Click threatened a student reporter for trying to cover the protest. The Daily Caller has dug a little bit into Professor Click’s background.
Her biography at the University of Missouri’s website describes her as an assistant professor with a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her research interests center on popular culture texts and audiences, particularly texts and audiences disdained in mainstream culture.
On Facebook, Click’s likes include Bitch Media, Everyday Feminism, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Indiana and Kentucky, MU LGBTQ Resource Center, MU Department of Black Studies, NPR and The New York Times.
Her current research includes studying readers of the tour de smut 50 [sic] Shades of Grey. She also studies Lady Gaga.The last time Click was published in any serious academic publication was in 2013. The topic was Lady Gaga.
Aside from the whole fascism aspect, the fact that publishing papers about Lady Gaga is considered a sound academic pursuit goes a long way toward explaining why people increasingly feel that higher education is a waste of time and money.
Luke Montgomery (f.k.a. “Luke Sissyfag”) is a radical left gay
activist attention whore with a penchant for making fetish videos of children using the f-word repeatedly. (Using the f-word a lot is a technique much embraced by people who think of themselves as brilliant but haven’t much talent.) He did a pro-feminist video of little girls using the f-word, and more recently, made a video of Hispanic children cursing at Donald Trump using the f-word. He and a lot of other radical activists were pressuring NBC to cancel Donald Trump’s hosting slot on Saturday Night Live Should Have Been Cancelled 20 Years Ago. His group even offered $5,000 to anyone who would disrupt the show and call Donald Trump a racist. Like every Obama domestic and foreign policy, he failed three times over.
Alas, I am certain we have not seen the last of Mr. Sissyfag. His style of putting gutter language in the mouths of children is just exactly the level of discourse the Modern Left prefers.
What happens when a generation is raised to believe that they are so wonderful and so special that anything that offends them, even slightly, is the most heinous injustice ever suffered by anyone in all of history?
They were mad because a professor said in an email that if someone’s Halloween costume offended them, they should try and act like adults about it.
Moms Demand Attention — a group of fanatical activists financed by Michael Bloomberg who seek ultimately to outlaw the private ownership of weapons for self-defense — have gone totes nanners because children are taught never to touch guns and to alert an adult if they find one.
Moms Demand Action’s Jennifer Hoppe recoiled at the news that Forest Hills was teaching children about gun safety. She said, “It’s atrocious to put the onus of gun safety onto children — this is an adult problem. Every gun that’s gotten into the hands of a child has first been under the control of an adult. A program that tries to dodge that is disingenuous.”
These same people will demand sex education because it supposedly will prevent kids from getting pregnant or an STD.
Actual gun safety is not helpful to their agenda, but dead children are. Hence, their position.
More good stuff at this link. But this is an especially cromulent point.
You are hateful and hypocritical when a woman doesn’t agree with your left wing mantra. God forbid a woman think for herself. The National Organization for Women is nothing but a snot-nosed, whiny, left wing arm of the Democrat Party. TRUE feminism doesn’t attack women for having different ideologies.
BTW, college feminists are calling for the Obama Administration to crack down on (read: ban and punish) a social media app because people sometimes say mean things on it and hurt their feelers.
The groups’ letter cites hate-filled comments, such as, “Jesus I hate black people,” as well as sexually explicit speech.
In its effort to censor Yik Yak on college campuses, the coalition — which includes the Feminist Majority Foundation and the National Organization for Women as well as the Human Rights Campaign and the National LGBTQ Task Force cites a 1969 Supreme Court case applicable to kindergarten through 12th grade students.
So, in other words, college students are demanding to be treated like kindergartners for purposes of censoring speech.
In 2004, the rapper formerly known as Puff Daddy was active with the “Vote or Die” group to encourage youth voter turnout. In 2008, he upped it to “Obama or Die”.
Guess what he says today?
During a recent Q&A at Revolt’s music conference, Diddy let loose with his true thoughts about voting.
Asked how young people could make themselves heard in the upcoming election, Diddy said, “See the things that’s tricky about politics is there’s so much bullsh*t with it. We started Vote or Die and… and from the community we’re in, we’re not with hearing too much of the bullsh*t. So that’s why we get disenfranchised, [we’re] disconnected because nothing that they’re saying actually relates to us… So Vote or Die, and getting out the vote, those things [were] laid out there so people could understand about the process. We started Vote or Die, and the whole process was all full of sh*t. The whole sh*t is a scam.”
He then added that people could still vote if they wanted: “At the end of the day, I’m not telling you not to vote. But I’m saying be a realist and know that they’re motherf*cking kicking some bullsh*t up there.”
And Obama is still President, so….is that who he’s talking about?
According to MSDNC host Melissa Harris-Perry; it’s a micro-aggression to praise anyone for “working hard” because, in her mind, “Hard Work” = “Slavery.”
“I want us to be super careful when we use the language “hard worker.” because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall. Because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like. So, I feel you that he`s a hard worker. I do. But in the context of relative privilege, and I just want to point out, when you talk about work life balance and being a hard worker, the moms who don`t have health care who are working.”
She’s all yours, progressive left. All yours.
Remember that episode of King of the Hill where an uptight, over-religious woman convinces the town to cancel Halloween because of its “Satanic” and “anti-Christian” overtones? In the past, it was the fringe of the social right that was mocked for taking Halloween too seriously. But now, it is the intolerant social left that is setting out to take the fun out of Halloween.
For example, A coven of dour feminists have suggested a list of “appropriate” Halloween costumes for young girls to celebrate feminist empowerment: including Gloria Steinem and Len Dunham. Gee, doesn’t that sound like fun.
Another sanctimonious leftist advises on how to lecture people whose costumes are politically incorrect.
Among all the tricks and treats, cultural appropriation is an undeniable problem this time of year.
By “undeniable problem” she means “irresistible opportunity for moralistic preening by social leftists.” In this case, she recommends cornering those whose costumes are deemed “offensive” and delivering a stern lecture on the sin of “cultural appropriation.”
“Cultural Appropriation” is a term created by sanctimonious social leftists to attack white people who enjoy partaking of non-white, non-European culture. White entertainers that incorporate elements of African, Caribbean, or Asian influences into their art and music: jazz, for example or Kabuki-inspired costumes, are guilty of cultural appropriation. Note that “Cultural Appropriation” only goes one way; to suggest that Africans should not attempt “white European art” such as ballet or classical music would be racism. “Cultural appropriation” has been extended by the sanctimonious social left to condemn colleges that serve tacos on campus and people who dress up as ninjas or bandidos for Halloween.
In reality, “cultural appropriation” is something privileged leftists made up to lord over other people because they have no real problems and no real morality. There’s also an element of the Baby Boom Left — for whom race sensitivity rivals only hyper-environmentalism as their religion of choice — that needs to keep their pieties from dying out in the Next Generation; even as racism becomes culturally and socially irrelevant.
The original cultural appropriators.
I am not making this up. You probably missed this if you get your news from the MFM, but along with calls for Shariah law, violent revolution, the destruction of Israel, and other perfectly reasonable things, a rambling Louis Farrakhan during a speech at his “Justice … Or Else” (or else what? You might well ask) Rally in Washington DC, also demanded the creation of a black homeland.
Farrakhan, who spoke for more than two hours about: – The need for black nationalism and 100 million acres of land “roughly the size of California” where black people can live separately, farming and growing their own food and becoming self-sufficient
Sure, give them California. It would interesting to have our own little Zimbabwe on the American Continent. (It would also help Berkeley meet their Diversity Quotas.)
Farrakhan stands in front of half a million people and demands revolution and his own country; but it’s those RWNJ Tea-Partiers who just want the Government to spend less money who are the dangerous radicals, if you believe the MFM and the Democrats.
(Farrakhan) now considers the black LGBTQ community a welcome part of the black liberation struggle, and that they should not be judged negatively or harshly.
This will convince many on the left that Mr. Farrakhan has “come around” and now is a person to be respected and treated seriously; like Al Sharpton.
Anti-gun fanatics at the University of Texas are protesting new laws that protect them from mass shootings, with typical leftist taste and decorum.
University of Texas at Austin students plan to carry dildos around campus next year in protest of recent legislation that allows concealed carry permit holders to carry their firearms to public colleges’ campuses.
“The State of Texas has decided that it is not at all obnoxious to allow deadly concealed weapons in classrooms, however it does have strict rules about free sexual expression, to protect your innocence,” the event description reads. “You would receive a citation for taking a dildo to class before you would get in trouble for taking a gun to class. Heaven forbid the penis.”
One is increasingly convinced there are no rational people on the left.
On a related note: Anti-Gun Lunatic Expels Uniformed Police Officer from ‘Olive Garden.’
You go first, honey. The rest of us will hang back and see how it goes.
A Transgender Activist in San Francisco is marketing child-sized dildos to “transgender” children; to create the illusion that there is a “bulge” in the child’s pants. Because that is very important, apparently.
I sincerely hope this is some kind of hoax. But it seems to be a real thing.
This issue does have a lighthearted side, though. Reflecting on her search to find her son appropriate products, Ellie describes her situation as “tragicomic.”
“I’m an adult, married heterosexual woman who doesn’t have a child with a penis,” she says, “I don’t really know what children’s penises look like and yet I’ve had really explicit conversations with strangers about children’s penises.”
I always wonder how much of the left’s obsession with “LGBT Youth” is thinly veiled … you know what.
Thank you, Protein Wisdom.
Question: It’s concerning to me that you’re telling lesbians they are bigoted/transphobic/vile for being exclusively attracted to females (referring to the female sex, to clarify), and accusing lesbians of contributing to the deaths of trans women by not having sex with them. Is it very difficult to understand that people have reasons for not wanting to have sex with male bodied individuals including previous experiences and also just the fact that their sexuality is inherent? Requiring sex as a form of validation from females comes across as worryingly entitled and very coercive.
Answer: There is no “female sex”.
Coercively gendering biology is violence.
Trans women are not “male bodied”. You’re assuming you know a trans woman’s biological features, for a start. Some trans women have penises, some have vaginas, some have other genitals. Some trans women have oestrogen dominant hormone profiles, some have testosterone dominant, some have other hormonal makeups. Some have boobs, some don’t. But in all cases, they are women, they are female, and therefore – as long as they choose to define themselves as such – they are female bodied.
This is why it’s so hard to distinguish parodies of progressive thought from actual progressive thought.
Britain’s answer to Bernie Sanders — Jeremy Corbyn — was just elected leader of Her Majesty’s Most Loyal Opposition. The less fanatically insane members of the Labour Party are beginning to regret that their party has descended into lunacy.
I come from a left-wing family, marched against Margaret Thatcher and was one of the first journalists to denounce New Labour’s embrace of corporate capitalism — and I don’t regret any of it. But slowly, too slowly I am ashamed to say, I began to notice that left-wing politics had turned rancid.
‘Tory, Tory, Tory. You’re a Tory.’ The level of hatred directed by the Corbyn left at Labour people who have fought Tories all their lives is as menacing as it is ridiculous. If you are a woman, you face misogyny. Kate Godfrey, the centrist Labour candidate in Stafford, told the Times she had received death threats and pornographic hate mail after challenging her local left. If you are a man, you are condemned in language not heard since the fall of Marxist Leninism. ‘This pathetic small-minded jealousy of the anti-democratic bourgeois shows them up for the reactionary neocons they really are,’ a Guardian commenter told its columnist Rafael Behr after he had criticised Corbyn.
Sounds terribly familiar, does it not?
Feminist (of course) says billionaires are building rocket-ships so they can destroy the Earth and sip Cognac and smoke cigars in their outer space palaces.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is the latest tech billionaire to invest his money in spaceships: on Tuesday, he debuted his space travel company Blue Origin’s newest rocket. Now, those who want to cruise the galaxy can choose between the sleek new rocket and the stubbier model Bezos announced in April – or they can opt to ride with Tesla founder Elon Musk on a SpaceX ship, or hop on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic.
Which raises the question: are they just gearing up to wash their hands of the planet and leave the rest of us to clean up? By pushing outward while ignoring the problems it causes back on the home turf, are they effectively creating a galactic upper class that rests on the backs of the earthbound? Even if that’s not literally the plan, it may be the ultimate outcome.
I guess this is why we need to elect Bernie Sanders; so we can take their money away from them before they can spend it on rocket-ships.
