Me Too stupidity…

leave a comment »

I have listened to —  and sung —  the original lyrics of the song “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” and they still don’t bother me at all.  I am not terribly surprised that the snowflakes and hysterics of the Me Too movement want us to believe that the  lyrics speak of  sexual harassment at the very least.   That is despite the fact that the point and counterpoint have been sung by both men and women.    Do none of these people know anyone who likes them well enough to try to coax them to stay a bit longer?  Does every male they know want only to rape them?  That’s what it sounds like.

I feel sorry for them,  but I have no intention of letting their fears  and self-loathing run my life.   What is it which drives liberal and progressive women to demand that others do something to solve their problems, to make them feel good about themselves?   They appear unwilling to take the smallest action to fix a problem.   Oh,  sure,  they’ll protest and wear ugly hats and scream at people from the perceived safety of a crowd,  but even in a group they have little physical bravery.   I encountered the grandparents of the Antifa crowd when they were protesting the Vietnam war,  killing soldiers who returned from that conflict and had the misfortune to wear their uniforms out on the street.  Some of them were well known for carrying signs attached to lengths of metal pipes filled with concrete.  they liked to sneak up behind people and hit them in the head with the pipes, then run away, pleased with their destruction.  But if they themselves received a bruise or scratch you could hear them screaming for help a mile away.  I don’t see the Me Too movement as much different in terms of claiming victimhood.  If you were abused,  I am sorry for that, but get off your ass and do something about it.   Why didn’t you do something at the time?  what does your failure to act say about your character,  not as a woman,  but as a human being?   You refuse to stand up for yourself but feel free to hurl abuse at those of us who refuse to follow your silly rules.   Wallow in your self-pity and victimhood.   But do not think the rest of us owe you anything else.

Rules don’t apply…

…if you’re a Democrat,  right?   Well,  an intern for Sen. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire has  been suspended  for a week for shouting an expletive at  Pres. Trump when he visited the Capitol last week.   Because it was on video and widely distributed,  Hassan had little choice but to give her intern a slap on the wrist,  but the potty-mouthed young woman is clearly in no danger of losing her job.

This is actually what progressives think,  and this is how they actually behave.  They have always been the most intolerant people on earth, and they have become progressively worse.  They won’t improve until they are ground into dust.  It is becoming our job to assist with that,  first by voting, and second by speaking out at every opportunity,  and by refusing to be cowed into silence by the bullies on the block.  Do your part.

Civility, progressive style…

…is threatening to kill people you don’t like on Twitter.   Like  this guy,  who renewed his threats against Rep. Bob Goodlatte,  even after a visit from the authorities,  who elicited his promise to refrain from such behavior.   The truly pathetic thing is that many progressives will be sorry only that he was caught,  not by his actions.   Violence is acceptable behavior so long as it is used against those you disagree with.

Data-mining…

leave a comment »

Media is behaving as if Trump is the only one who benefited from it and it’s just awful.  But when His  Oneness did  it,  media hailed him as a genius.  Facebook may have been surprised that the Obama team was able to such up and employ so much information,  but made no effort to interfere because they were  Obama fans.  But when Facebook realized Cambridge Analytics was doing the same thing to benefit Trump,  it suddenly got religion.

Rest assured that had Cambridge been working for Hillary or Bernie,  Facebook would have chosen to remain agnostic.   But the data was being used to assist Trump,  and that was unacceptable, and thus  a scandal.   You may well ask what the scandal is  — there  is not  one, really, nor is there any sort of  existential crisis.   If you understand this,  you understand the staggering hypocrisy of the media giants.  They get to change the rules,  or simply ignore them,  as it suits them.  I use a friend’s Facebook account so I can keep track of all the cute baby pictures and such amongst my family and friends,  but Facebook knows nothing about me.  In fact,  I barely exist on social media platforms,  which suits me fine,  considering the frequency  and severity of their data breaches.

Why is anyone…

…still willing to live in California?   Should a waiter who gives a  plastic straw  to a diner who did not specifically request one be subject to six months in jail and a fine of up to a grand?   Of course not,  but two cities in that state have already passed such laws,  and now the state legislature is considering doing the same.

The solution is to instead pass a law that any government official asking for  a straw or a glass of water be subject to those punishments.  After all, they should help save the planet too,  right?

When an illegal alien who doesn’t speak English is the first one tripped up,  it will be fascinating to see the progressives tie their tongues into pretzel knots trying to weasel out of the law.

It’s about time…

Baltimore businesses are  finally suing  most of the city of Baltimore, including former mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and the police department for letting the Freddie Gray rioters destroy their properties.

Baltimore is run by black progressives,  who do not look with favor upon the Second Amendment since they much prefer subjects to citizens.   Quick,  name a city run by black progressives to which ordinary citizens are flocking because it’s a great place to live and work….

Mother’s’ Day 2017…

leave a comment »

Patrice Lewis  raises an  interesting question:  is it mother’s or women’s day?   I favor Mother’s Day,  because that’s what it was established for and mothers hold a unique place,  at least in the Western world.   So-called feminists are fond of sneeringly calling actual mothers “breeders”, yet that epithet is reserved for Western women,  and applied even more enthusiastically to Christian women,  whereas they have nothing to say about the women and girls who suffer under shariah and Islam,  and who are,  in fact,  breeders so far as their society’s males are concerned.

Jesus was a  big fan  of children,  as well as their mothers,  which is but one reason progressives and our previous president so despise those of us who cling to our God,  guns —  you know the rest.

A mother of the  duck variety  and all but one of her brood were rescued from a swimming pool and escorted to a nearby lake by a group of volunteers.

This little autistic boy’s parents fell down on their job, but a Kansas policeman stepped up and  saved the  child.

I was invited to a mother’s day luncheon by a family member and happily went and had great food and a wonderful time with everyone.  I hope all of you were as fortunate.
