The Party of Elderly Feminists

Posted by V the K at 8:03 am - July 28, 2016.

Has anyone noticed that the Democrat Party is now completely run by and for elderly left-wing feminists? Hillary of course, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Cecile Richards, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jan Schakowsky (D-Illinois) Nita Loewy (D-NY) and the whole “Progressive Caucus” in the House. The party’s priorities… abortion, false narratives about women earning less than men, gun control, and expansion of the bureaucracy so other feminists can get Government-funded office jobs … reflect the prerogatives of women who came of age in the 1960s and 1970s and whose views are stuck in that era.

And as the Democrat Party has become the party of elderly left-wing feminists, their bitter contempt for whites males … and their fossilized ‘Mad Men’ Era view of same… has become ever more evident. To quote Nancy Pelosi:

“I think that, so many times, white — non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose.”

The poor old biddy thinks “God, guns, and gays” is still clever. Maybe it was back in the 70′s.   And she thinks those poor stupid males who won’t vote for a party that holds their values in utter contempt, and wants to redistribute their wages to feminist crones, are “voting against their own economic interests.”  That’s daft.

And isn’t it peculiar that in a party so fanatically pro-abortion that they actually oppose health and safety standards for place where abortions are performed, that they won’t actually say the word ‘abortion.’ It’s always ‘right to choose,’ ‘reproductive rights,’ or even ‘family planning?’ If abortion is such a great and important thing, why not just come out and say the word?

Leftists Love to Listen to Themselves Talk

Preezy Obama and a bunch of others spent four and a half hours talking with each other about gun control yesterday and emerged from the talkathon deciding that… they wanted to talk more about gun control.

After a three-hour convening of law enforcement, civil rights leaders, and Black Lives Matter activists that stretched to nearly four-and-a-half hours, President Obama declared the meeting a model of reaching out and finding common ground.

So, the secret to finding common ground is to exclude anyone from a discussion who might disagree with you. [And don't say, "But law enforcement was present, too." There are plenty of left-wing law enforcement people who want to outlaw guns.] Certainly sounds like the way Obama operates.

Personally, I would rather be waterboarded than listen to Chicago Jesus prattle on and on and on and on and on and on for four hours about how bad guns and racist bitter clingers are. As awful as waterboarding is, it’s over in like two minutes.

I can barely stand an hour long meeting. The longer a meeting goes, the less is actually accomplished, in my experience. When I end meetings, my closer is usually, “OK, we’re done with that. Let’s get back to work.” But to left-wing bureaucrats and social parasites (activists), yammering at each other is supposed to be “work” I guess.

Leftsplaining How White People Are Supposed to React to Cop Shootings

Posted by V the K at 2:31 pm - July 9, 2016.
Filed under: Liberals

A social leftist snowflake in Seattle shares her mindthoughts on the issue of how white people should react to “The Televised Execution of Black People.” Here’s the TLDR version:

1. Liberals, artists, and LGBTQAWXYZ are the most racially enlightened beings in the universe.
2. People who don’t live in cities are dumb.
3. If you’re not wallowing in white guilt, seek out an urban liberal artist or gay person to teach you how.
4. Once you have learned how wrong it is to be white, share your wisdom with those unenlightened hicks from the suburbs and rural areas (but try to be patient, because, remember, they aren’t as enlightened as you.)

a2634d816691c9babeb73adde3673944

 

Nowhere does the most special of special snowflakes counsel, “When you see media coverage of a policeman shooting a black person, you should calm your t-ts and wait until you learn more about the facts and circumstances.”

Also, there’s this:

We tolerate the regular, televised execution of Black men in our streets because when it comes down to it, we don’t value their lives quite as highly as our own.

Oh, pumpkin, that’s not racism, that’s human nature. It’s normal to value one’s own life above the lives of strangers. My personal hierarchy of lives I care about goes: Immediate Family; Extended Family; Pets; Friends; Other People’s Pets; Stray Cats; Certain Porn Stars; the rest of the Human Race.

It isn’t that I don’t care about the rest of humanity *at all,* but I care much more about those whom I have bonded with than people I don’t know. However, that does not mean I “tolerate” injustice or violence against people I don’t know. It means I, rationally, recognize the limits of my ability to do anything about it.

Gay Left Absolves Rad Mohammedism; Blames Christian Right for Orlando Slaughter

Gay Left Magazine ‘The Advocate’ toes the line on the left-wing narrative: Don’t Give in to Islamophobia Spreading on Social Media After Shooting. In other words, “Our Democrat masters insist on continuing to import 250,000 immigrants and refugees from gay-hating Muslim countries every year and we must fully support that.”

Their article quotes ACLU lawyer Chase Strangio, who blames Christians for the Islamist attack along with several other left-wing politicians and then echoes the left’s call for outlawing the civilian ownership of firearms.

Santa Monica Terror Suspect Doesn’t Fit the Desired Profile

The guy who was arrested in Santa Monica with weapons and bomb-making materials who said he was on his was to Gay Pride events gave the left some brief hope when he turned out to be a non-Muslim white guy.

But, it looks like James Wesley Howell, while very much white and male, may also be a gay Bernie Sanders supporter.

The officers said that the other complainants and witness stories were consistent and none seemed intoxicated. Two of them referred to an incident earlier in the day in which Howell had pointed his gun at his boyfriend. A report was taken after this incident as well.

At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.” — PJ O’Rourke

California’s Progressive, Pro-Criminal Crime Policies

In California, a one-party progressive state, the Democrats have unlimited power to enact their preferred policies. For example, California is vigorously enacting the two pillars of Progressive public safety policy. First, they are enacting laws designed to make it impossible for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves against criminals. Second, they are releasing from prison tens of thousands of burglars and drug dealers (which progressives call “nonviolent offenders,” or “the urban Democrat voting base”).

Because, according to progressive, politically-correct logic: More criminals + fewer law-abiding people with guns = Crime free, Star Trekkian Utopia.

But are these enlightened policies actually working as expected? Well… yeah, pretty much.

FBI Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Reports show that the property crime rate in San Francisco surged to 667 per 100,000 residents in the first half of 2015. Long Beach was 147 per 100,000; Los Angeles was 145 per 100,000; and Albuquerque was 142 per 100,000.

The rest of the top ten included Sacramento (86 per 100,000), San Jose (66 per 100,000), Baltimore (31 per 100,000), Nashville (11 per 100,000), San Diego (1 per 100,000), and Jacksonville (-25 per 100,000).

So, five of the top ten cities for property crime are in California. (But I’m guessing, most of that crime is in poor and middle class neighborhoods, not the gated communities where Democrat politicians live.) Good-going, progressives!

Meanwhile, in Switzerland, it is once again demonstrated that … as a consistent statistical fact … more guns in the hands of law-abiding people results in less crime. (Too bad progressives suck at math.)

When You Subsidize Bad Life Choices, People Will Make More Bad Life Choices

Posted by V the K at 10:56 am - February 23, 2016.
Filed under: Liberals

The mayor of left-wing college town Ithaca New York is implementing a plan to help users of heroin and other hard drugs by decriminalizing the use of drugs and creating “Safe Spaces” (i.e. Taxpayer-funded shooting galleries) where they can use heroin under medical supervision.

An upstate New York mayor wants his city to be the first in the U.S. to offer a supervised injection facility, where heroin users would be able to shoot up under the care of a nurse without getting arrested by police.

“It’s providing a safe place where they won’t overdose, where they can get treatment,” Svante said. “We’re not going to encourage more people to use, it’s just going to save lives and give them an opportunity.”

The Ithaca program is modeled after a program implemented in Vancouver, BC, that the social left loves because it 1.) involves spending other people’s money and 2.) subsidizing destructive behavior makes them feel tolerant, compassionate, and enlightened. But Not everyone agrees that Vancouver’s “taxpayer-subsidized shooting gallery” plan was such a grand idea.

Jim O’Rourke is the executive director at the British Columbia-based Vision Quest Recovery Society. Schauffler says that O’Rourke put it in stark terms, saying the city is killing addicts with kindness. “We might as well put a bullet in their head,” O’Rourke told him. “We’re killing them. We just doing it in a much nicer way.”

That’s pretty much how socialist compassion works out.

I am open to the idea of drug decriminalization because the War on Drugs has not only been an abysmal failure, but has also severely compromised civil liberties. By that same token, I don’t believe the Government should be subsidizing (and therefore encouraging) people’s bad life choices. e.g. Using dangerously addictive narcotics.

Sally Kohn Proves Me Right; John Kerry Tries to Top Her

This morning, Sally Kohn flopped out of bed and dispatched this nugget of wisdumb.


Setting aside the left’s dogma that “Everything Is About Racism Always,” Ms Kohn conveniently forgets that she is part of the media, and she tweeted exactly nothing about the Beirut attack before today.

Also, John Kerry… reflecting the consensus view of the left vis-a-vis Free Speech … says those disrespectful infidels at Charlie Hebdo had it coming to them.

 

There’s something different about what happened (in Paris Friday Night) from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that.

Progressives Care About Power, Not People

Posted by V the K at 7:52 am - July 15, 2015.
Filed under: Liberalism Run Amok,Liberals

The Progressive Left has one agenda above all others — to acquire all the power they can and hold onto it for as long as possible, and they don’t care how many other people suffer or die so long as they get power.

So argues Kurt Schlichter.

A nice young girl murdered by a released illegal alien with a gun lost by yet another incompetent government flunkie? That’s not a narrative they want. They want the votes of the illegal alien lobby. They want the votes of the limo libs who pat themselves on their backs for designating their filthy cesspool of a burg a “sanctuary city.” And they sure don’t want to insult their unionized federal hack constituency by focusing on yet another of its failures.

And why doesn’t Obama speak up about the daily massacres of black and Hispanic men on the streets of Chicago and other big cities? Because to do so would demonstrate the utter moral bankruptcy of the blue state model that nurtures the liberal machine. The most dangerous place in America for a minority is in a Democrat-run big city, and that fact is just not useful. It can’t demonize any political opponents, and to bring attention to it would only give rise to demands for accountability for the total failure of urban Democrat rule.

So Barack Obama and his liberal friends chose to just let people die. White, black, Hispanic – at least in their complete apathy the progressives have finally stopped discriminating. They judge everyone, of all colors and creeds, solely on the content of their political utility.

Remember the d-bag who made a YouTube video of himself berating a Chik-Fil-A employee because he disagreed with the owner of the chain’s support for traditional marriage? Thinking it would make him a big hero with the social left? He’s unemployed and living in an RV.

Adam Smith, 37, was the CFO of a medical device manufacturer in Arizona until the summer of 2012, when he started protested Chick-fil-A’s stance on gay marriage to an employee at a drive-thru.

“Chick-fil-A is a hateful company,” Smith told the employee. “I don’t know how you sleep at night,” Smith adds at another point. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values.”

After the employee, who never loses her composure, wished Smith a nice day, he responded, “I will. I just did something really good. I feel purposeful.”

Since then, Smith was fired from his job, and his wife and four children lost their home. The family was forced to sell and give away their possessions and move into an RV. He is now on food stamps, he says.

I feel sorry for his wife and kids.

Why haven’t his fellow SJW’s embraced him and supported him in his time of need? He was standing up for their cause, and none of them were willing to help him out? Sheesh, I guess they are too busy worrying about heteronormative microaggression triggers to help a brother out.

Liberals Really Are Less Patriotic than Conservatives

Posted by V the K at 11:48 am - February 24, 2015.
Filed under: Liberals

The left has been in a lather because Rudy Giuliani stated that a President who refused to wear an American Flag lapel pin while campaigning, grabbed his crotch during the pledge of allegiance, vowed to ‘fundamentally transform’ America, has apologized abroad for America’s “arrogance,” has said that American “exceptionalism” is no more real than Greek exceptionalism, and who has systematically undermined the economic and international standing of the United States through his policies… does not really love his country in the sense that the term “love of country” is generally understood.

The left gets pretty defensive when their patriotism is questioned, but the truth is, holding contempt for everything America is supposed to stand for (free enterprise, individual rights, freedom of religion) is a pretty unpatriotic belief system. The data back this up.

A Pew Research survey last year found that 46 percent of “steadfast conservatives” believed that the U.S. stands above all other countries; only 11 percent of “solid liberals” believed the same. Seventy-two percent of steadfast conservatives said they often feel proud to be an American; only 40 percent of solid liberals said they do.

This is really not a shocker. Most conservatives have liberal friends, we went to college with liberals, we were taught by liberals in schools, and we get liberal messages from a media that is about 96% controlled by liberals. We have heard you guys tearing down America, expressing contempt for America, American History, American values. So, don’t even play this game where you get all haughty and offended when your patriotism is questioned. Liberace used to get just as offended when people suggested he wasn’t into women.

Sororal Twaddle

Posted by V the K at 9:02 am - January 6, 2015.
Filed under: Liberals

A feminist at the Washington Post asked some of her feminist fem–buddies to state what they wished to femcomplish this year. For example,

My hope is that feminist, racial justice, reproductive rights and LGBT movements build a coalition that centers on the lives of women who lead intersectional lives and too often fall in between the cracks of these narrow mission statements.

Reading through these quotes, one notes the conspicuus absence of certain and particular things. You will not find, in any of them, an assertion of support for individual rights or free market principles. You will not find, in any of them, any quantifiable, concrete, or cogent goals, just the usual left-wing twaddle about collective struggle and empowering marginalized groups of people. Likewise, you will not find any deviation in thought; in fact, each feminist’s goal is pretty much a re-worded version of every othr feminist’s goals.

What is common throughout the quotes is an acceptance as fact of left-wing myths that have been thoroughly debunked in the real world. Myths such as womenfolk only earning seventy-something percent of what menfolk make, the myth that American college campuses are Rape Zones where gang-rapes are just a typical fraternity initiation ritual, and the myth that what happened in Ferguson was that a totes innocent black schoolboy was gunned down by a racist cop.

What these vacuous quotes really reveal is that there really is no feminist movement. Rather, the feminists are just one unimatrix in the Progressive Left Borg collective. There is no individuality, no freedom of thouhgt, no questioning of dogma; just drones mindlessly repeating the insipid pieties of the left.

The Narrow-Minded Provincialism of the Urban Left

Personally, I think living in New York City is de facto proof of mental illness. And it turns out, New Yorkers are getting increasingly particular about the hyperexpensive shoeboxes they are so proud live in. Yeah, they are willing to pay thousands of dollars a month to live in a space with the floorspace and amenities of a one-car garage in flyover country; but they are super-picky about the people living in the adjacent overpriced shoebox.

The apartment checked off every box on the buyers’ wish list: airy, gracious, great views of the park. It was in a terrific building, one of the most prestigious on the Upper East Side. The couple moved in, unpacked and tried without success over the next few months to get settled.

In the end, they packed up and moved out, said their broker, Barbara Fox, the founder of the Fox Residential Group, because of a pervasive sense that they didn’t belong. It wasn’t that their neighbors were standoffish, ignored them in the elevator or didn’t invite them to their parties — though in fact the whole thing did come down to parties.

“Frankly,” Ms. Fox said, “they just felt the building had too many Republicans.”

Progressive White Feminists Demand Law Against Black and Hispanic People Talking to them

Feminists are nuts, and also kind of racist, apparently. Last week, some feminists released a video of a woman walking around New York City and being subjected to catcalls and unwanted attention from Black and Hispanic males.

Now, some liberals are wondering whether there should be laws on the book to protect frail, delicate white women from being spoken to by members of the lesser races.

The New York Times wants to know if a law should shield white feminist women by preventing black and Hispanic men from speaking to them, and possibly offending their tender sensibilities.

Do We Need a Law Against Catcalling?” the august, Victorian newspaper asks.

Stipulated: Men should not behave this way in public; and for the most part, men don’t.

But this isn’t about standards of behavior, which the Left considers oppressive, patriarchal, microaggressive, and all that. This is really about power. This is about left-wing feminists asserting that they should be allowed to behave in public any way they want [ cf. “Slut-Walk.“]. However, they will use the power of the State to punish other people who behave in ways they do not approve of.

They want to act like Lena Dunham and be treated like Queen Victoria.

I guess that’s what you might call Liberal White Privilege.
