It’s last year’s news, but worth remembering. George Soros, Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid (and probably still pay) protestors, not only to turn out and carry signs or chant slogans, but also to instigate violence.
It’s on people’s radar in the last day or so because The Washington Post now says, who cares if these left-wing protestors are paid shills? So, what? Which is a shift: the Controlled Media used to simply deny that these left-wing protestors were paid shills.
an Academic Study by Insane Nutjob Radicals Settled Science, breastfeeding… which was a celebrated cause like, yesterday… is now problematic because it reinforces gender norms.
I am not making this up.
It’s “ethically inappropriate” for government and medical organizations to describe breastfeeding as “natural” because the term enforces rigid notions about gender roles, claims a new study in Pediatrics.
“Coupling nature with motherhood… can inadvertently support biologically deterministic arguments about the roles of men and women in the family (for example, that women should be the primary caretaker,” the study says.
The study notes that in recent years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, and several state departments of health have all promoted breastfeeding over bottle-feeding, using the term “natural.”
“Referencing the ‘natural’ in breastfeeding promotion… may inadvertently endorse a set of values about family life and gender roles, which would be ethically inappropriate,” the study says.
This is what happens when virtue-signaling runs amok. The entire community of divorced middle-aged white women that run the progressive left are trying to outdo each other to show who cares more about the Transgendereds.
Ann Coulter had to cancel her talk at Berkeley because violent leftists threatened to disrupt it, and the University decided it couldn’t stand up to them.
Now, the city of Portlandia has canceled its annual Rose Parade because violent left-wing groups threatened to disrupt it.
Before anyone offers the weak tea defense, “Well, of course *I* don’t condone this, but both sides do it,” please remind me the last time a left-wing speaker or public event had to be canceled because the alt-right threatened a violent response?
The New York Times, by the way, endorses the view that conservatives have no business trying to present their views in leftist environments like college campuses, and thus implicitly endorses the use of violence to keep such views out.
Don’t condone violence my butt.
Hulu has adapted a leftist fantasy novel about the United States becoming a Christian Theocracy into a dumb TV show. In this leftist fantasy, gays are publically executed and women are subjugated to serve as sex slaves to powerful men. This is just like Trump’s America, according to the Democrat Media Complex.
“A time very much like ours” is how The New York Times describes the scenes, shown in flashback, in which the gay-executing, woman-subjugating theocracy seizes power, using a terror attack in Washington as its Reichstag fire. Another Times piece says the show “arrives with a newfound and unexpected resonance in Trump’s America.” The Hollywood Reporter calls it “a story for the time and place we’re living in.” Harper’s Bazaar avers that it “Strikes uncomfortably close to real-world political rhetoric.” Slate deems it “Eerily prescient.”
This is the leftist world of paranoia and delusion; where Christians are just one election away from creating a Theocracy that will turn women into sex slave and murder all the homosexuals.
There’s only one religion out there that is subjugating women and killing gays. It ain’t Christianity. And it’s the one religion that progressive leftists love.
Trump never gets a break from the haters.
Trump asked Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, an Obama holdover, to step down. In his place, the president promoted Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams as acting surgeon general.
Instead of applauding President Trump for elevating a black, female nurse to the post, leftists attacked Dr. Trent-Adams’ credentials, saying she’s “just a nurse.” Obviously, Trump’s promotion of a black woman doesn’t fit the liberal media narrative that Trump is a “racist misogynist.”
A birthday party covered by an affiliate of Politifact, Democrat-Left activists in Philadelphia featured a piñata in the form of Republican Senator Pat Toomey. Guests were encouraged to “beat the sh*t out of it,” then bashed it until a torrent of condoms and sex-candies poured forth.
Guests were eager to destroy Toomey’s face, which had been filled by Pinto with condoms, lube packets, and sexual items such as dildo ring pops.
The Democrat Left’s obsessions with pee-pees and hoo-hoo-dillies rivals that of middle school children; which seems to be the emotional level of development of the typical Democrat leftists.
Now, imagine the media response if a group of Republicans beat a piñata of Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton filled with welfare checks and EBT cards.
When a guy who professes to believe that Sarah Palin is not Trig Palin’s real mother and the whole pregnancy was faked tells you that “Russians hacked the election” is a stupid Conspiracy Theory, maybe you should give him a listen. Andrew Sullivan is now pointing out that the Democrats’ desperate thrashing of the Red Menace is just a tactic for Democrats to avoid any critical self-examination of their party or its policies.
It wasn’t Clinton’s fault, we’re told. It never is. It was the voters’ — those ungrateful, deplorable know-nothings! Their sexism defeated her (despite a majority of white women voting for Trump). A wave of misogyny defeated her (ditto). James Comey is to blame. Bernie Sanders’s campaign — because it highlighted her enmeshment with Wall Street, her brain-dead interventionism and her rapacious money-grubbing since she left the State Department — was the problem. Millennial feminists were guilty as well, for not seeing what an amazing crusader for their cause this candidate was. And this, of course, is how Clinton sees it as well: She wasn’t responsible for her own campaign — her staffers were.
Judging from responses, Democrats aren’t handling the harsh reality check very well.
Really @NYMag, We have had enough of this crap!!#HillaryClinton lost because of sexism, racism, and #Russia.
They were so close to having everything. They thought the eight years of bullying and persecuting all the people they hated (Christians, Conservatives, southerners, white men) were going to become permanent. They thought America would become a one-party leftist state like California. The election of Trump put these plans on hold, for a little while anyway. And now they are deranged.
Joss Whedon … the Hollywood director who has made a career of fetishizing anorexic girls beating up guys … claims that Donald Trump is going to round up gay people just like they are allegedly doing in Chechnya. I am not making this up.
How much of the Democrat Left really believes this stuff? Seriously? How many Democrat gays just hear this and go. “Oh, yeah, Trump is totally going to round up gay people; and then Mike Pence is going to electrocute them for being gay.”
I just can’t imagine the sheer stupidity of anyone who just… I can’t even. It makes my head hurt to imagine being that stupid.
BTW: Some snowflakes at Notre Dame claim the mere presence of Vice President Mike Pence on their campus will make them suffer in the worst way imaginable… they will feel “unsafe.”
“For me personally, [Pence] represents the larger Trump administration,” Imanne Mondane, one of the students behind the campaign, told The Observer, a student-run newspaper. “His administration represents something, and for many people on our campus, it makes them feel unsafe to have someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.”
We’ve been having a pretty good debate over whether Trump’s missile strike into Syria was a wise move. We have been considering it from both a strategic and tactical standpoint; wondering what the long term implications are for foreign policy and for our relationships with other powers, including Russia. We’ve also questioned the role of the Deep State National Security Bureaucracy in covering the chemical attacks that led to the strikes.
Over on the left, they’re upset because the name “Tomahawk Missile” is a “cultural appropriation.”
I am not making this up.
By the way, when a lesbian wears a mullet, is she culturally appropriating from redneck bros?
Melania Trump’s White House portrait was revealed earlier this week.
It’s a lovely portrait.
Leftists are going nuts attacking it.
She wore a diamond ring… roll out the guillotines!
“A shopping mall glamor shot” — sneer the elderly feminists at Cosmo.
They are even attacking her because… horror of horrors… she has her arms crossed in the portrait.
Oh, the humanity!
(When Obama crossed his arms for his presidential portrait, the DMC went into joygasms.)
We got lectured non-stop for eight years about what a gorgeous and brilliant woman Michelle Obama was (both claims are arguable) and no one on the left kvetched about the cost of her clothing. Now, we have a truly stunning first lady of considerable accomplishments (successful business woman, speaks five languages) and the deranged people on the left are losing their crap.
And the “she crossed her arms thing” apparently was never a problem when Democrats did it.
At its core, Pence’s self-imposed ban is rape culture.
The explicit reasons for Pence’s restriction are religion and family, but the implicit reason is that he must avoid alone-time with women lest his stringent religious moral code fall apart in the presence of a little lipstick and décolletage. That is rape culture.
This is a man who makes Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” look positively progressive as his administration backs regressive policy after regressive policy.
So, while Pence’s marriage is none of our business, his attitudes towards women are. And if, in 2017, he believes they remain such fallen, lascivious things that he can’t possible be in a room alone with them, it says less about his faith and more the fact he sees women as lesser beings.
Update: This same operative had a rather different take on Bill Clinton’s serial infidelities and sexual assaults.
A more saneful take is from Jonah Goldberg: The Left: “Let’s Not Be Judgmental About Adultery But, Yeah, Let’s Totally Attack Christians for Avoiding Adultery.”
OK, so if you aren’t outraged by Transgendereds being offended by p*ssy hats, or the Census not inquiring into people’s sexuality, you could try being outraged that Mike Pence shows respect for his wife by not dining with women other than his wife and not attending events where alcohol is served unless his wife is present.
Because that seems to be the left-wing outrage of choice today.
“He’s more Muslim than Obama!!” sez a commenter at the WashPost. (Obama, by the way, is taking a long vacation on an exclusive tropical island sans Michelle.)
These people weren’t outraged by Bill Clinton sexually assaulting women, or John Edwards having an affair while his wife was dying of cancer, or Ted Kennedy drunk driving off a bridge and leaving a woman to die. But they are absolutely incensed about Mike Pence’s loyalty to his wife, and you should be outraged by it to, I guess.
Realistically speaking, no man working today should ever allow himself to be alone with a female subordinate or co-worker. Not ever.
Andrew Sullivan thinks that the left should try to be less arrogant and condescending. Good luck with that.
“There was a giant cloud of smug above Rachel Maddow when she was doing that. Liberals have to be careful not to sound so fucking condescending and smug… and start actually engaging the other side and persuading people.”
That cloud of smug is larger and thicker than the smog over Beijing on a bad day. I’d settle for the left being less deranged and violent; it’s not in their nature to be less arrogant and condescending. The social-democrat left is identity politics, and inherent in their identity politics is the belief that they are smarter and better than everyone else. When Obama described non-progressives as bitterly clinging to guns and religion and Hillary referred to us as “deplorables,” these were not gaffes, this name-calling was calculated to appeal to the left’s sense of superiority.
Let’s face it, any attempt by the Democrat-Socialist Left to pretend they care about working class voters is going to come off more forced and phony than Hillary attempting a southern accent.
*ICYMI, Andrew Sullivan’s obsessive belief that Sarah Palin faked a pregnancy to cover her daughter’s out-of-wedlock teen pregnancy was the “Russians hacked the election” conspiracy theory of 2008; except since McCain lost, the media didn’t have a reason to obsess over it as much as he did.
BTW: Hillary’s #1 Twitter fanboy is still butthurt over the loss; which he blames on… try not to laugh, I dare you… biased media. This guy wanted to be Hillary’s bottom boy as bad as Sully wanted to have Obama’s caramel-colored babies.
Ace thinks this could be a joke. Who knows any more. I mean, it is entirely consistent with wanker orthodoxy, isn’t it?
A nutjob left-wing filmmaker aspiring to be the next Morgan Spurlock has made a “documentary” whose thesis is that Michael Brown didn’t rob the convenience store he was caught on camera… um… robbing, but that what happened in the convenience store was an unsuccessful drug deal… and so the fake “Hand’s Up Don’t Shoot” Narrative is somehow… um… not … fake… or something.
Community Activists have already started stoking riots black neighborhoods because of this film. Because that’ll show whitey.
This nutjob left-wing film-maker goes off like Ashley Judd on an interviewer that confronts him with facts. But what is really striking to me is the way he accuses the Obama/Holder Justice Department of being part of a racist conspiracy to incarcerate black men and protect white cops.
Unhinged ranting about conspiracy theories… this guy could be a Democrat congresswoman.
Lucian Wintrich (remember him? The “Twinks4Trump” twink?) — a gay reporter covering a White House press conference — reports that he was bullied and threatened by
Mike Pence wielding an electric cattle prod other Mainstream Media reporters who didn’t care for his kind.
As reporters entered Friday’s White House press briefing, witnesses reported that (Fox Radio News Reporter) Decker loudly, and allegedly physically, accosted Wintrich personally, calling him a “Nazi,” and saying of the site, “they hate blacks, Jews, and Hispanics.”
Wintrich asserted that Decker physically blocked him from entering and that he will be pressing charges against the Fox reporter.
After the incident, Politico reported that Decker’s actions were applauded by several White House reporters, who “shook Decker’s hands as he walked back to the Fox News radio booth.”
This feminist seems to really, really resent women who found husbands.
Once, I went to a “Female Founder’s” conference for female entrepreneurs and one of the main speakers addressed the audience: “Don’t be afraid to found with your husband. Most female founders I know have founded with their husbands.” Her words filled with me rage, but what she was saying was true; many successful female entrepreneurs I knew did indeed found with their husbands.
Trying to found a company as a woman with a successful male partner is much easier than trying to found a company as a woman with a female partner, a woman with no partner, or a woman with a less successful male partner. This is a highly insidious, type of patriarchy as women are denied access to success on their own and are reliant on their husbands. This crops up all over the place; could a woman who hadn’t been married to a previous president realistically be running right now?
She’s sort of tacitly admitting that Hillary was nothing without Bill.
Update: Is it just me, or do “woke” feminist men look like 1970’s porn actors.
Update: Maybe that should be a table for two. (Summary: Another diatribe from a smug blue state leftist proclaims how blue states (cities) are superior to red states because they have all the hedge fund managers, opinion journalists, and marketing consultants; whereas the red states are just a bunch of dumb farmers, mechanics, and trades people.)
In acknowledgement of “Womyn’s Herstory Month” and the Terrorist-Led “Day Without Self-Centered Feminist Womyn,” the Politically, Fashionably, and Sexually Incorrect Return of Kings blog recognizes three feminist icons who have contributed to much to the philosophy of modern feminism. (You may not have heard of them, but trust me, your local Womyn’s Studies Department has.) Here are some (not minor, but actually major figures in the Feminist Movement) stating their beliefs in their own words.
The parent-child relationship is primarily erotic because all human relationships are primarily erotic.
The incest taboo, because it denies us essential fulfillment with the parents whom we love with our primary energy, forces us to internalize those parents and constantly seek them. The incest taboo does the worst work of the culture… The destruction of the incest taboo is essential to the development of cooperative human community based on the free-flow of natural androgynous eroticism.
And just as the end goal of socialist revolution was not only the elimination of the economic class privilege but of the economic class distinction itself, so the end goal of feminist revolution must be, unlike that of the first feminist movement, not just the elimination of male privilege but of the sex distinction itself: genital differences between human beings would no longer matter culturally.
Valerie Solanas (who went to prison for shooting Andy Warhol)
Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.
(And I realize that RoK is one of those dreadful “alt-right” blogs, but the quotes are factual AFAIK. Plus, Steve will enjoy the anti-Semitism in the comments section.)
