Points to Ponder Re: Trump and the Media

Two commentaries on PDT’s expert manipulation of the MFM. From Instapundit on how the media’s hubris has led them to a place where their squawking is profitable but irrelevant:

The Educated Class’s emphasis on intra-class virtue signaling — which is what all this smugness and ridicule is about — undermines every institution it controls. And it lacks the self-awareness and self-control to do anything about that.

Of a piece with that, an article at FrontPage arguing that Trump’s real genius lies in his understanding of the root motivations of the media — greed and arrogance — and how he exploits both of them to is advantage. He really is the first president to understand we live in an era of clickbait.

The media spent eight years declining into irrelevance under Obama. Even before Trump, Obama had bypassed the media for social media. The big stories were fed to the press by Obama Inc. cronies like Ben Rhodes or hidden hand political smear shops like Fusion GPS. Even its core mission of cheerleading the left had become meaningless as younger lefties no longer bothered reading, watching or even clicking on mainstream media sites. The media was running out of customers, money and relevance.

Trump revived the media. The young lefties helping monetize the media again are coming for him. And every time he attacks the media, he makes it more relevant. The ritually insincere public wails about the unique threat to the free press posed by snarky tweets from the White House mask the private celebrations in every newsroom that Trump is making them into the center of attention once again.

The deep, deep-blue state of Oregon is one of those states where, under law, motorists are not allowed to pump their own gas; because the act of putting gasoline into an automobile is one of those highly technical, very tricky tasks that requires a professional to perform it. However, Oregon recently passed a law allowing some gas stations in the hick parts of the state to offer self-service.  Hilarity, in the form of Facebook comments from panicked liberals, ensued.

Not a good idea, there are lots of reason to have an attendant helping, one is they need a job too. Many people are not capable of knowing how to pump gas and the hazards of not doing it correctly. Besides I don’t want to go to work smelling of gas when I get it on my hands or clothes. I agree Very bad idea.”

“I don’t even know HOW to pump gas and I am 62, native Oregonian…..I say NO THANKS! I don’t want to smell like gasoline!”

“I’ve lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas. I had to do it once in California while visiting my brother and almost died doing it. This a service only qualified people should perform. I will literally park at the pump and wait until someone pumps my gas. I can’t even.”

“Yuck! Pumping my on fuel in freezing temperatures and handling a nasty ole fuel nozzle that 50 other people have touched that day (and who knows what cooties are on there), no thank you. It’s nice to not have to pump your own fuel.”

No! Disabled, seniors, people with young children in the car need help. Not to mention getting out of your car with transients around and not feeling safe too. This is a very bad idea. Grrr

This is where we pretty much are, socio-politically? Am I right?

Over at Buzzfeed, they thought it would be hip and trendy to publish an listicle titled ‘37 Things White People Need To Stop Ruining.’ Can you imagine an listicle of things Black People Need to Stop Ruining? Or Hispanic People? Or Mohammedans? No, but hating whitey has become a badge of sophistication on the left. “The whites have too much money and power. The whites have too much influence on culture and philosophy. We need to do something about the Problem of Whiteness.” Is it hard to imagine an article in certain publications in the 1930’s titled “37 Things That the Jews Need to Stop Ruining”… in German? Articles like this are worse than the racial cartoons from the 1940’s that have been culturally censored. The racial stereotypes then were not intended to encourage hate; but Buzzfeed’s article is.

And, yeah, I can hear the rationalization, “It’s just a joke, lighten up, Francis.” But if it’s “just a joke,” why is it completely unacceptable to write an article like this about non-white races? If every race could be subjected to ridicule equally, I’d agree. And I think people of different races should be able to mock each other’s social norms…. equally. But this article was written and published by people who profess that race-based humor is hatred; so what can we conclude that the only acceptable race-based humor is directed at the whites?

 

 

The Left’s State Religion

The Premier of Ontario Canada — a self-proclaimed lesbian feminist — has taken to wearing a symbol of Mohammedan oppression of women to show “solidarity” with her Mohammedan constituents.

Why are certain forms of “cultural appropriation” not only acceptable but approved of by Puritan Leftists? Is it because when leftist politicians pander for votes, it’s okay to engage in Cultural Appropriation? Just like how the same leftists who don “Handmaid’s Tale” style bonnets to protest the nonexistent oppression of women under PDT are all-in for wearing Mohammedan garments that literally and purposefully symbolize the submission of women to men in Mohammedan culture.

Nothing Matters

An interesting article on why our culture is preoccupied with unimportant and phony issues like Global Warming, transgendereds, Russian collusion (the Red Scare is back and bigger than ever), and the non-existent Rape Culture. All of these issues serve to advance the power of the state and diminish individual rights. The long history of humanity is basically that the majority of people have been ruled over by a tyrannical minority. The American Experiment was a departure from the norm; but we are rapidly returning to it.

The history of the 20th century is proof positive that political insanity is a norm of human behavior and that true civilization — moral decency, intellectual sobriety, industrial and commercial productivity, the rule of law and genuine justice — is the exception.”We live in the flicker,” said Joseph Conrad’s Marlow in Heart of Darkness — that is, “live” as civilized beings. But when truth is dismissed as merely an expression of power, when feeling is elevated over thought, and when fictions are raised to the status of unassailable convictions, the writing is on the wall of every dwelling and institution. Civilizations, said Toynbee, die of suicide, not murder.

What brings a civilization to the point where it believes it can survive on fables, myths and self-deception remains an open question, but the trajectory towards the embrace of fantasy and nonsense seems historically inevitable. We are there now, cruising through the drive-ins. Serving up nothing burgers to itself is how a civilization starves to death. Caveat coenator

The Eurotopian Life Is Not for Me

Pretentious twit laments that Europe is so much better than America because hardly anybody works, and most people get to spend their time in posh cafes sipping coffee and reading.

Whenever I go back and forth between Europe and the States, a curious set of facts strikes me.

In London, Paris, Berlin, I hop on the train, head to the cafe — it’s the afternoon, and nobody’s gotten to work until 9am, and even then, maybe not until 10 — order a carefully made coffee and a newly baked croissant, do some writing, pick up some fresh groceries, maybe a meal or two, head home — now it’s 6 or 7, and everyone else has already gone home around 5 — and watch something interesting, maybe a documentary by an academic, the BBC’s Blue Planet, or a Swedish crime-noir. I think back on my day and remember the people smiling and laughing at the pubs and cafes.

In New York, Washington, Philadelphia, I do the same thing, but it is not the same experience at all. I take broken down public transport to the cafe — everybody’s been at work since 6 or 7 or 8, so they already look half-dead — order coffee and a croissant, both of which are fairly tasteless, do some writing, pick up some mass-produced groceries, full of toxins and colourings and GMOs, even if they are labelled “organic” and “fresh”, all forbidden in Europe, head home — people are still at work, though it’s 7 or 8 — and watch something bland and forgettable, reality porn, decline porn, police-state TV. I think back on my day and remember how I didn’t see a single genuine smile — only hard, grim faces, set against despair, like imagine living in Soviet Leningrad.

Everything I consume in the States is of a vastly, abysmally lower quality. Every single thing. The food, the media, little things like fashion, art, public spaces, the emotional context, the work environment, and life in general.

First of all… New York, DC, and Philadelphia are basically the branch offices of Hell on Earth, so no wonder nobody there ever smiles. Second, Umair Haque is a pretentious little bitch. Who TF cares what you think, pretentious little bitch.

There’s this thing that the middle-aged white women who run our culture want to catch on. It’s a Danish concept called hygge. It’s pronounced Hoo-Gah, so right off the bat you see it isn’t even spelled properly. What it means is, being snug in your home reading and burning candles, or maybe having a few friends over to drink tea or cocoa by candlelight, cocooning yourselves in heavy sweaters and blankets and feeling great because that’s what life is all about. And supposedly, hygge is this really terrific thing that makes Danes and Scandinavians happy and wonderful.

It isn’t. It’s pretty much the only activity you have left when the Government is confiscating 60% or more of your income to fund the welfare state (plus a 25% Value-Added-Tax on all goods and services). You can’t do anything fun because you don’t have enough money. So you are left with the lifestyle socialist white women would want you to have; and now they are telling you that you should enjoy it. Who needs fun stuff like video games or snowmobiles, when you can be drinking cocoa under a blanket watching Swedish crime-noir or British documentaries.

If Scandianavian countries are ‘the happiest places in the world’ as leftists contend, why do they have the highest rates of anti-depressant usage in the world?

It’s Always Poop with These People

Posted by V the K at 12:59 pm - December 26, 2017.
Filed under: Unhinged Liberals

A psychologist decided to protest Donald Trump’s presidency by leaving large boxes of poop at a pair of home owned by PDT’s Secretary of the Treasury. He says that this act puts him in the company of Martin Luther King, and he hopes that leaving poop at the homes of administration officials will sweep the country as a form of protest.

Remember, he’s a psychologist… from California.

The intellectual and philosophical cupboard of the Progressive left is so bare that flinging poo is literally all the left has left.

The psychological term for smearing feces is ‘scatolia.’ Furthermore, “scatolia tends to occur in individuals with a history of obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, ADD, autism or post-traumatic stress, especially trauma related to physical or sexual abuse or people who are still butthurt and deranged that Donald Trump was elected president.”

Some typical unbiased reporting from the completely non-partisan American press: How Trump and the Nazis Stole Christmas To Promote White Nationalism (Newsweek)

The fight to end the war on Christmas is exclusionary politics at its most flagrant.

“I see such invocations of Christmas as a kind of cypher, what some would call a dog whistle. It does not appear to be intolerant or extreme, but to attentive audiences it speaks volumes about identity and belonging—who and what are fully American,” Richard King, a professor at Washington State University who studies how white supremacists exploit culture, told Newsweek.

Likewise, Nazi Germany’s propagandists rooted their idea of Christmas in visions of ethno-nationalism. They rewrote the lyrics of Christmas carols, promoted Nazified holiday traditions and launched numerous Christmas charity events for poor Germans. The ultimate goal was to draw a clear line between those who belonged and those who should be excluded, those who could not benefit from the joys of Christmas.

Merry Christmas… blah blah blah… White Supremacy… blah blah blah… Trump… blah blah blah Nazis.

Interesting that the author admits there’s a war on Christmas, though.

Leftist Writer Hates Watching People Enjoy Christmas, But Does it Anyway so He Can Whine About It.

Posted by V the K at 3:03 pm - December 24, 2017.
Filed under: Unhinged Liberals

Liberals want everyone to be sad, dysfunctional and lonely like they are. Some soy boy named Zachary Jason watched a bunch of Christmas specials on the Hallmark Channel, and it reinforced his hatred of Donald Trump’s America.

After watching a few of Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas films, the network’s burgeoning red-state appeal comes into focus. As much as these movies offer giddy, predictable escapes from Trumpian chaos, they all depict a fantasy world in which America has been Made Great Again. Real and fictional heartland small towns with names such as Evergreen and Cookie Jar are as thriving as their own small businesses, and even a high school art teacher (played by Trump supporter and the face of Hallmark, Candace Cameron Bure) can afford a lavishly renovated Colonial home. They brim with white heterosexuals who exclusively, emphatically, and endlessly bellow “Merry Christmas” to every lumberjack and labradoodle they pass. They’re centered on beauty-pageant heroines and strong-jawed heroes with white-nationalist haircuts. There are occasional sightings of Christmas sweater–wearing black people, but they exist only to cheer on the dreams of the white leads, and everyone on Trump’s naughty list—Muslims, gay people, feminists—has never crossed the snowcapped green-screen mountains to taint these quaint Christmas villages. “Santa Just Is White” seems to be etched into every Hallmark movie’s town seal.

I looked up the author’s biopage.  His Twitter page is a treat, too.  I can understand his resentment of attractive, successful people.  I’m not into sappy Christmas movies myself. ‘Die Hard.’ ‘Scrooged.’ ‘Bad Santa’ are much more my pace. But the loathing and hatred toward people experiencing joy… nope, that’s not something I experience. I don’t harbor resentment toward happy people who have good lives. I guess that’s why I’m not a leftist.

The most busted name in news laments that popular children’s programs promote “fascism.”

Two of the most divisive shows are “Thomas the Tank Engine” and “Paw Patrol,” both of which have been eviscerated by grown-ups on discussion boards, in social media and in widely shared essays in prestigious publications.
“Thomas,” the long-running television franchise about a group of working trains chugging away on the Island of Sodor, has been called a “premodern corporate-totalitarian dystopia” in the New Yorker, imperialist and sinister in Slate, and classist, sexist and anti-environmentalist in the Guardian. And yet people — presumably parents — spend $1 billion on “Thomas” merchandise every year.
“Paw Patrol” is equally polarizing. The show, about a group of rescue dogs led by a boy named Ryder, is a regular source of complaint among parents and of adoration among their kids. Buzzfeed called the show “terrible” and pointed to instances of gender and social inequality that go unchecked on the show.

Once again, are you… or are you not… happy that your entire life isn’t spent analyzing all forms of media for messages that run counter to politically correct social dogma and then going to internet to pontificate about it?

Tax Cut Fallout and Tweets du Jour

Posted by V the K at 8:23 am - December 21, 2017.
Filed under: Random Thoughts

I hope at least a handful of Gaypatriot readers, commenters, and lurkers survived “Tax Cut Armageddon.” The carnage has not been too bad in central Ohio, but I understand the casualties in California and New York will be in the tens of millions.

To add to the carnage, Evil Corporations(TM) like Comcast, Wells-Fargo, and AT&T are using the dreadful Republican tax cuts… to pay their employees more money. Can you believe it? Leftists are dismissing this as a PR stunt. They never dismiss a company announcement of a pro-LGBT policy (which costs companies nothing) as a PR stunt.

But I guess those $1,000 bonuses amount to less than half of the $2,500 people have saved because of Obamacare… oh, wait… Obamacare actually made health care even more expensive. My bad.

Never-Trumper Bill “Thurston Howell IV” Kristol says that for corporations to be handing out raises and bonuses in the wake of tax cut passage is “creepy.”  His dream of instituting a blood aristocracy is deferred once again.

Anyway, the Democrats have now latched onto the talking point that the tax cuts for most people “won’t amount to much.” And, indeed, to the bottom two income quintiles who already pay nothing in income taxes, they naturally won’t be getting to keep as much of their own money as giant corporations who have billions annually confiscated. The difference being, large corporations are in a much better position to add employees and build factories than people in the bottom two income quintiles.  Not to mention, the “won’t amount to much” talking point just shows how out of touch the Democrats are with people who could use an extra $100 a month or so.

By sheer coincidence, the Washington Post’s editorial opinion on the Tax Reform Plan aligns to Democrat Party talking points with the precision of a Swiss Watch.

And then there’s this idiot Boston Globe columnist thinks people should happily surrender more money to the Government, because the Government will use it more “efficiently.” 

That governments spend money more efficiently than you do is literally the reason we have governments

Wasn’t Boston where they had that ‘Big Dig’ thingie that cost four times as much as initially budgeted and was finished ten years behind schedule? Is that his idea of Government “efficiency?” Was it “efficient” when the Government spent $800,000 to study how African men wash their pee-pees, or $400,000 to study Argentinian gay bars? $22 Million so that Harry Reid’s billionaire buddy can study UFOs?

And finally there’s this from a parody account, but I think sums up the feelings of the Democrat base.

Someone please explain how Trump’s stupid tax cut bill helps people like me that don’t want a job.

So sayeth Democrat House Leader Nancy Pelosi.

“The bill that the Republicans are putting forth to go to conference is probably one of the worst bills in the history of the United States of America,” Pelosi said, just moments before the Republicans voted to begin the conference negotiations designed to iron out the differences between the tax bills passed by the two chambers.

“The debate on health care is like death,” Pelosi said. “This is armageddon.”

Senate Democrat Leader Chuck “Bitch Stewardess” Schumer has also lost his marbles.

When he just couldn’t take it anymore he lashed out at Republicans: “This is serious stuff. We believe you’re messing up America,” he shouted.

LOL. Where you been the last eight years, sChmuck? Where were you when your president ordered law enforcement to stand down from an investigation of a terrorist organization running drugs into the United States to finance terror so he could cozy up to the biggest state sponsor of terrorism on all the Earth?

But, yeah, go ahead and lose your freakin’ mind over some fairly modest tax reform.

‘Men should grow beards. One of the two body parts that separate men from women is the beard,’ according to Hurriyet Daily News.

‘For example, if you see a man with long hair from afar you may think he is a woman if he does not have a beard. Because nowadays women and men dress similarly.

Even though, as a conservatarian, I am supposed to hate all brown people and think of women as sex slaves who should be forced to wear coal-scuttle bonnets a la “Handmaid’s Tale,” (sarcasm, duh), I think Nimrata Haley would be a much, much better choice for first lady president than… um… some of the other options being floated. (And unlike some of the other options being floated, she’s a legit Indian.)

She really let that Mos Eisley Cantina of tyrants, crooks, and dysfunction known as the United Nations have it yesterday.

To the United Nations’ shame, this has been a disproportionately hostile place for the Middle East’s most enduring democracy.

The United States refuses to accept the double standard that says we are not impartial when we stand by the will of the American people by moving our U.S. embassy, but somehow the United Nations is a neutral party when it consistently singles out Israel for condemnation.

For decades, Israel has withstood wave after wave of bias in the UN and its agencies. The United States has often stood beside Israel. We did not on December 23, 2016. We will not make that mistake again.

Oh Look, Art-Fags Doing Something Stupid

It’s now a trendy thing for straight couples to pretend to be lesbians; because modern urban culture is nothing more than adult children playing pretend forever and ever. And nothing is more trendy than pretending to be a victim of something.

Joanne was given space to write an op-ed in the [New York]  Times because she says she and Lara face persecution.  One time, Joanne and Lara were driving a car in a sinister-sounding town called “Whiteville,” North Carolina.  Then Joanne saw some guys who looked as though they were from Duck Dynasty.  According to Joanne, the Duck Dynasty guys followed Joanne and Lara in their pickup truck for a while.  And then they stopped following Joanne and Lara!

That is why Joanne was given a highlighted space on the op-ed pages of the Times to write about discrimination against heterosexual couples pretending to be lesbians.  For Joanne and Lara not only feel the imagined sting of persecution that lesbians feel, but that of being pretend lesbians as well, which is probably even worse
