Chinese “Year of the Monkey” poster or conceptual title art for Alan Ball’s new HBO series. You tell me.
1. I am almost sure these 1970′s PSA’s marked the beginning of ‘Special Snowflake’ culture.
2. A PSA where a throbbing orb comes into a little girl’s bedroom at night to teach her about touching things. In particular, “smooth” and “soft” things. And she concludes that the best things to touch are… I won’t spoil it.
Was everybody in the 1970′s on acid?
Caitlyn Jenner is done dating women.
In the season 2 trailer for “I Am Cait” she flat out says it … “To be honest I don’t see myself dating women in the future.”
Pretty sure this is just a publicity stunt for that reality show. This question may sound snarky, but it’s actually serious: Does the dating pool for this sixty-something trainwreck include anyone who isn’t a gold-digger or a fame-whore?
The nice thing is that we won’t have to rely on conjecture. Because the media will make sure we’re kept up-to-date on EVERY.FREAKING.DETAIL.
David Bowie, dead at 69.
Keith Richards, still alive.
How does that work again?
For those who believe these deaths happen in threes… Natalie Cole and Lemmy.
Instead of some PC bullshirt about “Oh, I would pay off my parents’ mortgage and start a charity so that underprivileged children with autism could swim with the dolphins,” this guy gives a much more honest and realistic answer to the question of “What would you do if you won the Powerball?”
That is, apparently, what real Powerball winners actually do.
Also, the reporter seems to have the IQ of a small appliance bulb. “Why is the jackpot so big? Because no one has won it.”
With insight like that, she’ll be covering the White House for CNN afore too long.
Y’ever think about what you would do if you won a big jackpot? All I know for sure is I would never, ever tell anyone.
At OKWU, we teach you to be selfless rather than self-centered. We are more interested in you practicing personal forgiveness than political revenge. We want you to model interpersonal reconciliation rather than foment personal conflict. We believe the content of your character is more important than the color of your skin. We don’t believe that you have been victimized every time you feel guilty and we don’t issue “trigger warnings” before altar calls.

I wish more people would deal with the Social Justice Warriors and spoiled Special Snowflakes of the left the way Gordon Ramsay deals with bitch-customers.
This might be satire, but satire looks an awful lot like stuff Progressives actually believe, these days. Apparently, the Eighties-Era John Hughes movie “Sixteen Candles” is racist and promotes date rape. Thus, it must be censored and banned.
The racism and sexism in Hughes’ movie is so over-the-top I have to hope any teens watching it today would view it as a shocking, old-timey artifact. Perhaps most glaringly, there’s Long Duk Dong (Gedde Watanabe), the Chinese foreign exchange student whose every mention is accompanied by the sound of a gong.
I stand by my prediction that a day will come when all pre-Obama film and television will be censored and banned as “culturally insensitive” and subversive. Here’s a few other things that might be banned.
- Some Like It Hot -Classic Comedy, offensive to transgendereds, celebrates alcohol abuse, depicts violent gun play, and furthers the patriarchal narrative that women want to get married to men.
- The Wizard of Oz - Offensively and derisively portrays little people and Wiccan-Americans.
- Seven Samurai and all other Akira Kurosawa films – Because they encourage other directors to culturally appropriate them.
- ‘Roots’ – Depictions of slavery may be traumatic or trigeering to African-Americans
- Bosom Buddies - Tom Hanks small screen debut is offensive to the transgendereds.
- Die Hard - Promotes the offensive ‘Good Guy with a Gun’ myth that liberals despise; also portrays Government authority figures as less competent than individuals with initiative.
- All episodes of M*A*S*H - Hawkeye was a serial sexual harasser, the show portrays Asians as violent people who don’t speak English very well, depicts Middle-Eastern transvestites as mentally unstable and dishonest, and to cap it all off, early seasons featured an African-American character called ‘Spear-Chucker.”
- Also, White Chicks, for reasons that should be obvious.
CBS is launching a new Star Trek series in 2017, which they promise will be “exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.”
Let’s face it, many of the worst Star Trek episodes ever were when they took on contemporary social issues. Frank Gorshin made up like a black-and-white cookie to ham-fist the point that “Racism is bad” in the original Star Trek, for example. Or on Star Trek: The Next Generation, when — in a tortured analogy to Global Warming – Star Fleet ordered its starships to slow down because Warp Speed was destroying the universe. By the end of Star Trek: Voyager, things had gotten so silly that we were treated to multiple episodes demanding equal rights for holograms; that’s akin to saying the characters of ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ and ‘The Brady Bunch’ should be treated like real people and given voting rights.
Sometimes, the social justice episodes were so inept, they ended making the opposite of the point they intended. The Next Generation’s single most boringest episode ever, “The Outcast“, was an hour-long lecture on LGBT issues, that, oddly enough, ended with the “homosexual” alien being cured through psychological treatment. A similar misfire was Voyager’s single-payer health care propaganda piece, “Critical Care,” in which a state-run medical system gave the rich and elite top-shelf treatment while letting the poor suffer and die. This was supposed to get us to embrace Hillarycare?
Of course, it’s a new era, now. So, I guess, we can look forward (teeth-gritted, stomach knotted) to new Star Trek episodes taking on contemporary 21st Century social issues (ripped from the headlines, like ‘Law and Order’).
- Tired of being beamed into dangerous situations as decoys for the senior officers, the crew of the Enterprise forms a #RedShirtLivesMatter movement and burns down major parts of the ship in protest.
- The New Transgender Commandant decides to take on the Rape Culture at Star Fleet Academy by having all male cadets implanted with devices in their heads that explode unless they ask for consent every two minutes. Feminists are still not happy.
- A Bajoran refuses to make a Rokeg Blood Pie for use in a Klingon ritual, citing deeply held religious beliefs. His business is confiscated and he is sentenced to re-education treatments to cure his intolerance. Finally, to appease the outraged Klingons, he is eaten alive by Tribbles.
- The Federation enters into a ill-advised Treaty to appease a hostile alien species, conceding them virtually everything they want in order to secure peace. The Treaty ultimately emboldens the enemy leading to the most destructive war in Federation History. Oh, wait, they already did that.
Maybe the New Star Trek series will be okay. If they use the cast from Firefly. And set it in the Firefly universe, and hire the writers from Firefly. And call it ‘Firefly.’
Didn’t think this was a big deal when I saw it, but it’s all over the interwebs. Therefore, I conclude it is a thing.
WARNING: Heteronormative Microaggression Triggers.
First, CBS created a program whose heroine is a female Secretary of State, just as a Democrat former Secretary of State starts running for president. Coincidence, yeah, sure.
Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein of The Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with no political future to protect, she can unshackle her inner badass.
Apparently, this is supposed to be a big deal. But I feel more like…
NASA announced today that they found liquid water on Mars. Now, I can’t get this out of my head.
In a culture that is driven by make-believe (“Caitlyn Jenner is a woman!” “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” “Republicans are conservative.”), it’s only natural that the break-up of two make-believe characters would be treated like an actual news story.
A story in People magazine had said Kermit the Frog wasted no time moving on from his breakup with longtime girlfriend Miss Piggy and was now dating an ABC marketer named Denise.
Not true, says Kermit. They’re just “friends.”
Let’s be honest, Miss Piggy has always been completely self-centered, high-maintenance, manipulative, and at times downright abusive; a typical 21st Century feminist. That’s probably why the feminists gave her an award. She openly flirts with other men in front of him and just expects Kermit to take it.
And basically, Kermit got tired of dealing with her sh-t.
Kind of plays into the social zeitgeist, or whatever. “Empowered” women have become so unbearable that men are not just fleeing marriage, but relationships with women entirely.
At the end of the day, Kermit and Miss Piggy are inanimate pieces of felt and stuffing. Pretending they are real people makes about as much sense as pretending Trayvon Martin was an innocent schoolboy gunned down by a white racist.
The Caitlyn Jenner reality series lost more than half of its premiere haul on Sunday night, per live-plus-same-day ratings. The episode averaged 1.3 million viewers, down from 2.7 million viewers the week prior.
America isn’t nearly as obsessed with transsexuals as transsexuals are obsessed with themselves.
When the controversy over the Confederate Battle Flag erupted (because somehow the CBF was implicated in the mass murder of nine people in a way the Koran is never), leftist apologists were declaring that, “This is only about taking that flag off Government buildings and putting it in a museum. No one is talking about banning the Confederate Flag.”
And then the Obama regime decided to remove the flag from museums, too.
So, just like when they said they were not going to force conscientious objectors into participating in gay weddings, the left was lying.
But you want to know the real reason the rainbow brownshits want ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ off the air? Because it isn’t about the CBF, it’s more about the show’s underlying message.
The Dukes were Southern ‘good ol’ boys,’ economically disadvantaged and disarmed by a corrupt state that deprived them of firearms. Yet. they stood up to, and repeatedly defeated, a greedy and corrupt state authority (Boss Hogg) who manipulated Law Enforcement (Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane) into an instrument of oppression against his opponents.
You can see why this is an unwelcome message in the age of Obama.
As Confederate Flag hysteria reaches new heights, some have begun to wonder if the television series ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ will be memory-holed from our culture. Beyond featuring a car with the Confederate Battle Emblem on the roof named the ‘General Lee,’ the Dukes of Hazzard was a celebration of rural southern culture. Back when the southern states were solidly Democrat, the national culture was a lot more supportive of southern culture. Only since the south has turned red has the media culture turned against them.
There was another show in the 1970′s that was iconically liberal; M*A*S*H. M*A*S*H was steeped in the left-wing ideology of the time. War was never the answer. Patriots were buffoons. The communists were the good guys. Women were strong and empowered. All of the pieties of the 1970′s Hollywood left were on full display.
Nowadays, M*A*S*H would run afoul of the PC Police.
- Alan Alda’s Captain Hawkeye Pierce (a 1970′s Liberal icon) would be a serial rapist by contemporary feminist definitions of the word.
- The character of Corporal Max Klinger would be deemed offensive to the transgendered because his cross-dressing is intended to demonstrate mental illness.
- In early episodes, there was a black character whose name was, I am not making this up, “Spearchucker.”
One generation’s liberal pieties are the next generation’s abominations. It demonstrates what a fickle, emotion-driven beast modern liberalism is. It’s not based on a set of proven values, but on whatever is trendy at the time.
One can foresee a time when all pre-Obama television shows and movies (except maybe for scifi shows and things set in “alternate realities”) are simply banned lest people be reminded how free and prosperous America was before Obama.
The left, and vile POS Dan Savage in particular, is obsessed with the Duggar family of Arkansas; because they are white, hetersexual, Christian fundamentalists and refuse to be ashamed of any of those things like leftists think they should be.
And it turns out, one of the Duggar boys, a long time ago, did something terrible. He confessed to it, repented of it, and never made any attempt to excuse or justify it, or ask anyone else to. And that thing he did was similar in kind and degree to what honored left-wing film-makers Roman Polanski, Victor Salva, and Woody Allen did; none of whom repented of the child-rapes or creepy incestuous molestations they committed, and all of whom are welcome members of the left-wing film-making community.
But the left is going after the Duggar family with all the pitchforks and torches they can round up. And they are… in the manner of a crazed, self-righteous mob… positively gleeful about the alleged hypocrisy of the Duggar situation… because it supposedly proves Christians are awful, Christians are hypocrites, Christianity is a lie, and everybody should be a hedonistic atheist; because they are paragons of never being hypocrites.
They would indeed be correct in their assessment if the central tenet of the Christian faith was that all believers in Christ are without sin or blemish. But far from that being a doctrine of the religion, it is actually the precise opposite of what Christians believe. None of us — not the Duggars, not anyone — claim that a faith in Jesus bestows perfect holiness on the faithful. It is because of our sinful nature that we need Him. When we sin, we do not disprove that thesis; we underscore it.
Christianity is not a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card that absolves holders of all transgressions, but Leftism totally is. Leftism is why Al Gore can fly all over the world on private jets and have multiple homes that have a larger carbon footprint than some third world countries; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Bill Clinton can be a serial abuser of women and have feminists run to his defense; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Michael Moore can avoid union labor and take tax breaks for making movies in Michigan while decrying corporate welfare; his leftism makes it okay.
Leftists don’t understand Chrisitianity; because it is utterly unlike leftism.
I didn’t watch the game; I cancelled cable TV two years ago and never looked back. But I have noted some of the “buzz” that most of the ads debuted in the SuperBowl were just wretched.
- Nissan’s Ad apparently sums up their pitch as “Terrible Cars for Terrible People.”
- Nationwide laid a bummer on the entire country with its infamous “Dead Kids” ad. The company is apparently just trying to latch onto the nationwide trend of fanatical, obsessive-compulsive over-parenting; the endgame of which is apparently to seal children in ‘Safety Pods’ until the age of 26, so to spare them any potentially harmful contact with the real world.
- And then, of course, the rad fems must be pleased that both Always Tampons and T-Mobile released ads on the theme of “Girls Rule, Boys Suck.” Yes, the zeitgeist of our contemporary culture is exactly the same as what eight year old girls believe it should be.
As for the game itself…
This would definitely put a crimp in the yiffing: Chlorine gas sickens 19 at furries convention
Chlorine gas sickened several people and forced the evacuation of thousands of guests from a suburban Chicago hotel early Sunday, including many dressed in cartoonish animal costumes for an annual furries convention who were ushered across the street to a convention center hosting a dog show.
