White women in particular are a good target because while they are angry and indignant about asserting “muh rights,” they also expect some white knight to come bail them out, because this is what has happened their whole lives thanks to white dads and brothers.
This is why after muhrighting for forty years, they end up alone, childless, in dingy city apartments, with big wine bills and atrophied emotional centers (the cat lady stereotype is wrong; the women of this type cannot commit to or connect to anything but themselves).
This is politics, herd-style, and politics inevitably devolves to it because it is a more powerful mechanism than honesty. The leftmost three-quarters of the Bell Curve thrill and buzz for such tactics. This is why the fake Russia collusion probe and other tactics are so common; they make the dumb jump when you say “jump,” and this is why the Left wants to flesh out the left side of the Bell Curve by importing as many third world populations as possible.
No one will ever go broke underestimating the masochism of Star Wars fans. With the exception of last year’s Rogue One, every Star Wars film for the past twenty years has been pure, unadulterated garbage, yet the franchise continues to make enough money to outstrip the GDPs of half the third world. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the latest outing in a galaxy far, far away, breaking box office records with yet another sugary mix of generic CGI action and social justice mumbo-jumbo.
The Last Jedi has also revealed mainstream movie critics to be bought-and-paid-for hacks, because their universal acclaim for the movie belies the fans utter revulsion for it. And the fans are right: The Last Jedi isn’t just the worst Star Wars film ever, it’s easily one of the worst films in years. Every time I think Star Wars can’t get any worse, the creators somehow dig themselves a little deeper into the hole.
The Last Jedi isn’t bad just because of anti-white, anti-male propaganda. It’s not bad just because it pisses all over Star Wars canon, including the canon of the previous film, The Force Awakens. The Last Jedi is bad because it fundamentally fails at storytelling and because it doesn’t understand what Star Wars actually is.
The Force Awakens was bad, but it was a bland, inoffensive kind of bad, whereas The Last Jedi actually made me angry. I would have walked out of the theater if Roosh hadn’t asked me to review the movie for ROK. Here’s why the movie is so horrible. And yes, this review is full of spoilers, but who cares?
But there’s a difference between being an innocent victim speaking out about being abused—with the sole intent of getting your victimizer charged and convicted of said crimes—and being a woman who willingly went along with iffy sexual activity who is retroactively trying to profit from it.
Long story short, a lot of these harassment accusers—be they real or phony victims—aren’t looking for justice. They don’t want their harassers tried in a court of law for their criminal misdeeds; they want free and easy money. They couldn’t give a shit about their dignity, all they’re seeing is dollar signs and quite possibly the ability to salvage their sagging careers under the auspices of a trendy hashtag.
. . . . .
Despite there being scores of men—Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin, Charlie Rose, Louis C.K., Garrison Keillor, Tavis Smiley, etc.—getting fired for alleged sexual misconduct over the last few months, to the best of my knowledge none of them have actually been arrested for sex crimes. Indeed, in most cases absolutely zero proof has been presented to the public backing up these claims.
Even in the most high profile of cases—Bill O’Reilly and Bill Cosby being perhaps the two most noteworthy—actual proof that the accused did anything criminal have yet to emerge (and in the only major criminal wrongdoing case to make it to a judge thus far, Cosby was legally exonerated on a mistrial.)
Girls can do anything boys can do. Except for all the things boys can do.
This social exclusion is reinforced by the “whiteness of farmers’ markets” and the “white habitus” that they can reinforce, the professors elaborate, describing farmers’ markets as “white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.”
We certainly don’t want anything associated with America’s core population to be “normalized.”
Legislation to ban these racist markets is urgently required, especially since they might draw white people into the neighborhood, raising property values and thereby “displacing low-income residents and people of color.”
This is a paradoxical outcome, since farmers’ markets are often established in the interest of fighting so-called “food deserts” in lower-income and minority communities.
A food desert is what you get when the only food available in a ghetto is the stuff people who live in ghettos eat. The alternative would be for the “food consumption habits of white people” to be normalized, which would be racist.
Leftism requires that people rationalize equality of human beings despite evident inequality in abilities and quality of character. In order to do this, they must mentally construct a victimhood saga where those who need equality — those below the average — have been oppressed and held back by those above. This causes them to visualize the above-average as stupid, cruel and evil.
In the same way, Leftists when witnessing a mass shooting decide that the majority are to blame for the situation, and reason that it must be not just fair but good if that majority is killed off.
Egalitarian movements all have this duality: because equality is not real, they must invent a narrative in which they can justify the belief despite its delusional quality.
In so doing, they separate the world into that which supports the narrative and that which does not, and while they hide this in social settings, fervently wish for and work toward the death of the non-narrative elements.
The thing that fascinates me the most about this situation is that the so-called “pro-science” people are giving Trump low grades for his first 100 days.
Allow me to connect some dots.
In science, you don’t have much of an experiment unless you have a control case for comparison. For example, you can’t know if a drug helped with a particular disease unless you study the people who didn’t take the drug at the same time as those who did.
But the pro-science people forget this concept when thinking about politics. Where is the control case for Trump’s first 100 days?
Is it George Washington’s first 100 days?
Is it Jimmy Carter’s first 100 days?
And which prior president came to office in 2017 with identical problems and the most polarized political environment in history?
And just how long is it supposed to take to revise Obamacare? Do we compare it to the time Abe Lincoln repealed and replaced Obamacare? Or how about the time those other presidents repealed and replaced Obamacare in the year 2017?
As we approach the holiday season there will be much debate on how President Trump has performed for his first calendar year. As a populist president, I think the best way to judge his performance is by focusing on the issues voters say are their top priorities. Pew Research polled voters to determine their political priorities for 2017.
Let’s see how President Trump is doing so far on the top ten priorities according to the public.
