Do Not Accept This Woman's Friendship Requests


Saturday, July 8, 2017

Dox Soup

Self-described GOP consultant, TV pundit, campaign runner and extremely adjunct professor Cheri Jacobus recently got into a protracted Twitter tiff with the brilliantly funny libertarian and TV personality Greg Gutfeld.

She took issue with Gutfeld’s berating CNN for going after the purported creator of a popular GIF depicting President Trump body slamming a character representing the network, at a fake scripted professional wrestling event. For some reason, or perhaps no reason, she insinuated that Gutfeld condoned the alleged creator’s other posts, such as one labeling CNN employees with Stars of David.

Twitchy has a rundown of the bizarre exchange.

Perhaps Jacobus feels justified for jumping on Gutfeld because a vicious GIF once attacked and ate her uncle, but her objection seems too much like that of some on the left who are compelled to squeal in protest to silence any person they disagree with, even if it is a gay, Jewish man, or a woman who has the audacity of taking the Second Amendment literally.

Pushing Back

So there's been a trend over the last few years that most people should be concerned with, namely the way social media outlets have begun to censor their users. From Twitter banning Milo Yiannopoulos to the way Youtube has been demonetizing and otherwise burying content from users covering "controversial" topics. Google is just as guilty of it in some cases, but as a platform is so ubiquitous and sees such heavy traffic that they are too big a sandbox to be policed as effectively.

It's Over CNN. We Have the High Ground

A Whole New Word

Over the course of the past few months, I have found myself submersed in arguments with a number of liberals, which is not an experience I recommend.

Not because it's impossible to win an argument with a liberal. That's a given. Any argument you might put forth will be met with accusations of being "phobic" of whatever position you are arguing against. The typical argument is peppered liberally (pun intended) with references to such scholarly and intellectual fare as the Huffington Post, SalonDotCom, the DailyKos, and, of course, Vox, from whom we first learned that those evil Israelis have a bridge between Gaza and the West Bank,  to which they ruthlessly limit the access of Palestinians.

Apparently their KoolAid is spiked with LSD.

So, I get into these arguments with people for whom the grasp on reality is tenuous at best.

And, in these argument, I come into contact with word like cisgender, transphobic, mansplaining, racist, beneficiary of white privilege, male privilege, and heir to the patriarchy.

Taken separately, each of these words has a meaning, some of which I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I know. However, string them and others all together in one semi-coherent, possibly drug-fueled argument, and simply reading them can cause one's mind to misfire and stutter and encounter what one might term a "stupor of thought."

It gets to the point where one stops thinking about what is being said and retreats to the safe space in one's mind, where thought is forbidden and everything is rainbows and unicorns.

Simply glimpsing too much of these writings can cause a formerly sane person to lose his or her mid and descend into insanity, sort of like a Necronomicon of Stupidity.

In an effort to forewarn those who would like to maintain their sanity, or whatever might be left of it, I have a word that can be used to warn others of the presence of this Liberal Gibberish, or, as I like to call it, Liberrish.

SO, here's a definition:

Libberish (n.):Leftist ranting so stupid, so incomprehensible to normal, sane people that it has the potential to rip a hole in the fabric of space and time and suck the sanity of those otherwise normal, sane people into the Seventh Circle of Hell.

You're welcome.

Love Is All You Bleed

During Ariana Grande’s “One Love Manchester” benefit concert, counter-terrorism expert Katy Perry imparted cultivated pearls of enlightenment on the unwashed, un-bodyguarded, un-gated communitied masses who apparently have not done enough to open their hearts to their misunderstood neighbors.

“It's not easy to always choose love, is it, especially in moments like this... but love conquers fear and love conquers hate, and this love you choose will give you strength, and it's our greatest power.”

“As you stand here, all of you here..standing next to a stranger...just touch the next person, touch the person next to you. Tell them I love you, look in their eyes.”

“I encourage you to choose love, even when it's difficult. Let no one take that away from you.”

No wonder a certain subset of unfairly oppressed migrants are moved to occasionally go out and slaughter a bunch of infidels. Wouldn’t you? Of course you would, because all religions are the same.

I Need A Stiff Drink

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
-Robert A. Heinlein

What does that have to do with needing a stiff drink? Well, with Antifa larping like they're real revolutionaries, when most of them are beta males trying to score enough SJW good boy points to get some attention from cat eye glasses wearing manatees with pink hair or are cat eye glasses wearing manatees with pink hair themself, it occurs to me that one of the skills of a refined man is the ability to mix a good drink. In point of fact I think that has to be the biggest omission from Heinlein's list.

Beggers of the world unite, comrades

Apparently the person or people who run the Just Some Antifas tumblr think begging is a job. If you don't believe me but don't want to give them the clicks I got a screencap of their post included here for you.

They seem to be under the misconception that the only definition of a job is that people pay you for something, and in so far as it goes that argument goes it isn't entirely wrong, it isn't entirely correct either. Their arugment falls apart when they define the good or service of begging as the act itself. There simply isn't anything there.

Capitalism is when in its purest form simply a very advanced form of bartering where currency is a neutral medium that allows for different goods to be exchanged more fluidly, as there is a defined objective value instead of an abstract value. Begging has no objective value and only a very nebulous abstract value, the feeling of moral satisfaction attained from doing good on the part of the person who gives. That money exchanged? It isn't the result of labor, but a charitable donation with no real value to the person who makes the donation. That's the whole point of the charitable donation exemption in the tax code, the government is paying you for good work such as assisting the disenfranchised.

There is a lot you can say about Antifa and how they are spoiled children. Seriously, google the phrase "antifa are spoiled children" and you will find news articles, blog posts and youtube videos aplenty,  but this tumblr post exposes one of the core reasons no one outside of their like minded regressive leftist allies can take them seriously, they lack common sense and any sort of real understanding.

But Fully Automatic Dialers Should Be Banned


Social Justice: The Musical

So, I've got a thing for subversive pop culture. It is bad, I can take straight forward narratives and turn them in to critiques just to play devil's advocate. Awesomely I was turned on to something by my fiancee (and yea, a curmudgeon like myself somehow convinced a sweet younger woman he was worth marrying) and that something was Social Justice: The Musical. A work by Chris Ray Gun on youtube that parodies pop songs from a variety of sources to criticize pc culture and social justice warriors. Have fun poking at cry bullies everyone.

Bills



So it's that time of year again, where it is time to pay the bills to keep this site up.

Problem is, it doesn't really make any money since people aren't writing much any more.

I could take this time to apologize for my own lack of writing lately, but why would I do that? I am the boss. I hired all of these people to do it for me.

Anyways, since we need to pull in some dough around here, I am going to have to write some things myself, apparently. Since these unpaid slaves workers are slacking off so badly.

The Liberal Left

It has been way too long since I last posted, and I'm not even going to complain about my real job keeping me from it because this idiocy has me too annoyed. This image is a classic example of lying using the truth because, as of it being made, it was technically accurate but highly misleading. If you wanted to educate yourself starting with the Firearms Policy Coalition wouldn't be a bad idea.

I'm A Nerd, Sometimes I talk About Nerd Things.

So, no one is going to be shocked to learn I am a huge nerd at this point. One of my all time favorite characters in the Marvel universe just received their first live action adaptation in the form of Netflix's newest super hero offering: Iron Fist.

My own personal take is that while the adaptation of the character and his world isn't perfect, it is far, far better than it has any right to be, making the character believably human while still holding true (more or less) to his representation in the comics. Danny Rand was orphaned when the plane he and his billionaire parents were on goes down in the Himalayan mountains. He is saved from death by the monks of the mystical city of K'un-Lun, where he is taken in, trained, and eventually becomes their champion, The Iron Fist. He leaves K'un-Lun to return to New York seeking answers on how and why the plane crash happened, and gets drawn in to conflicts there.

White Guilt

So it should come as no surprise to anyone, considering I've ranted about it before, but I'm not much of a fan of identity politics. The idea that we can simply define people by the group or category they're in is.... well.... dumb. Don't get me wrong, categorizing things can be useful. Saying an animal is a dog gives us some basic information, but it isn't the whole picture. Because I'm not a fan of identity ploitics you better believe I'm not a fan of the Lifeline Expedition.

Marvel, Please Stop Pandering, Ok?

So, I'm a comic book fan, I'm looking forward to the premiere of Iron Fist on netflix to what is frankly an absurd degree, most of my workout gear is super hero themed, and I can rattle off lore for the heroes and villains of the big two publishers like a cape obsessed Rain Man. The problem is there is a problem at Marvel, that problem is social justic warrior pandering. don't believe me? Ok, check this out.

The Battle Over Gun Rights Continues

So the Fourth circuit court of appeals made an interesting decision on tuesday. It seems that the second amendment does not appeal to "weapons of war" in their minds. To my mind this is exactly in opposition to the intention and wording of the second amendment, which reads "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Why is that a contradiction? Well, for a few reasons.
