Fauxcohontas: Heap Big Crybully

9th February 2017

Read it.

Merriam-Webster hasn’t added a definition for “crybully” yet, but here’s a definition from UrbanDictionary.com: “A chronic or serial protester/complainer who claims persecution/victimization based on phony, exaggerated or unverifiable transgressions, is overly sensitive to criticism, and uses harrassment and/or intimidation to silence others who question, doubt, or disagree with the complainer’s position.”

Here’s a shorter definition: “Senator Elizabeth Warren.”

Speculation Disguised as News

1st February 2017

Here is the graphic on the front page of the New York Times’ website this morning:

What a remarkably precise estimate of where Neil Gorsuch fits in! This is one of the media’s worst habits — reporting gross speculation as if it were news. No one knows if Gorsuch will be more or less conservative than, say, Sam Alito, yet this kind of reporting will shape the narrative anyway.

California to Consider Enacting Statewide Sanctuary

31st January 2017

Read it.

The attempt through state action to nullify Federal law didn’t work out well for South Carolina in 1860.

Their subsequent attempt at secession didn’t work out well for them either.

Let’s see if modern attempts at foot-shooting work any better than past ones. (A modern-day Sherman March up the Pacific Coast Highway would be fairly entertaining, though.)

You Learn Something New Every Day

31st January 2017

Apparently the poem by socialist Emma Lazarus later attached to the pedestal for the Statue of Liberty to raise funds for its purchase was, at some unspecified time, incorporated into the Constitution of the United States, either by amendment (which I can’t find) or by Supreme Court decision (which I also can’t find).

Funny how I got all the way through law school without encountering that fact.

The Media Bubble

30th January 2017

Read it.

Journalists, especially on the national beat, live in an insulated world populated by other journalists and like-minded, self-described policy wonks. Even if they happen to have come from the Midwest or somewhere else people do actual work for a living, they undoubtedly spent their youth yearning to leave. Having hated where they grew up, that economic reality is easy to escape and forget in recession-proof Washington, when you type and talk for a living.

Listening is only for people who “matter,” not those who labor. Industrial areas are places they visit every four years, like the zoo. You don’t listen to the animals at the zoo. They pop in, write their stories about blue-haired old ladies and how quaint it is, then head back to the DC cocktail circuit as a hero who can regale their peers with tales of how they survived some filthy diner lacking a proper brunch menu. “You mean they didn’t have mimosas?” The horror.

Washington Post Solicits Immigration Sob Stories

30th January 2017

Read it.

In what might be described as the journalism equivalent of ambulance chasing, the Washington Post is inviting readers to tell it how their lives have been ruined by President Trump’s executive order on immigration.

I’ve been reading the Post for 55 years. I don’t recall the paper ever running individualized story after individualized story about how particular people have been affected by a government policy. Nor do I recall the Post ever soliciting such stories.

I also don’t recall the Post engaging in this sort of journalism when Donald Trump intervened to prevent companies from moving plants from the U.S. to foreign countries. The Post easily could have run multiple stories about workers whose jobs Trump saved, thereby rescuing their economic situation. The Post could have elicited information about the dire consequences particular people would have faced if the company had moved its operation abroad.

To the best of my recollection, the Post didn’t do so.

It can’t be that the Washington Post is out to get our new president, can it?

Felony Charges for Journalists Arrested at Inauguration Protests Raise Fears for Press Freedom

Liberal Actor Shia LaBeouf Goes on Bizarre Anti-Trump Rant

26th January 2017

Read it.

Mostly former actor and now mostly performance artist Shia LaBeouf seems to be under the illusion that if the above monotonous chant is repeated on livestream video 24/7 for the next four years, it will somehow have some sort of political impact. Well, maybe not so much political as a comedy impact as we shall see although that definitely is not LaBeouf’s intention. Entertainment provides us with a quick review of LaBeouf’s latest performance art obsession that has inadvertently turned into comic art for others.

It’s astonishing how common the belief is among those who pretend to be other people for money that they are great movers and shakers in politics, despite the fact that their influence extends only to those on the left hand of the bell curve. I rather doubt that President Trump is losing a lot of sleep over being disliked by people whose major contribution to modern American life is increasing the percentage of the population who have tattoos, piercings, and minimum-wage jobs.

CBC Fake News Show Hires Actor to Portray Racist Trump Supporter

25th January 2017

It seems that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Marketplace show was unable to find a racist Trump supporter. Instead, they hired an actor named Mike to portray one as you shall see. Mike’s job as a racist Trump supporter was to sell a couple of White Power T-shirts along with a “Make Canada Great Again” T-shirt. It was their laughably unsubtle attempt to link Donald Trump to racism.

Thanks for Nothing, Bitches

Kathy Shaidle is fed up.

Here I thought my column would write itself this week: A bunch of dumb broads were plotting an anti-Trump demo in Washington that, like all the other “Million Something Marches,” would surely wind up being just a handful of jerks standing around stupidly screaming for a few hours. And then I’d make fun of them (and their unfunny, semiotically askew, pink knitted “pussy hats”) for 800 words.

(Seriously, what do those hats mean? “I dare Trump to ‘grab’ the fuchsia, cat-eared wool vagina on my head”?)

White Candidate for DNC Chair Says Her Job Will Be ‘To Shut Other White People Down’

24th January 2017

Read it.

Sally Boynton Brown, a white woman running for chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Monday that if she is chosen to lead the party her job will be to “shut other white people down.”

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt,” Brown said during a DNC candidate forum.

Brown, the executive director of the Idaho Democratic Committee, is running for the chair position against six other candidates, including three African-American candidates and one Hispanic, former Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘oh, no, I’m not prejudice; I’m a Democrat; I’m accepting,’” Brown bellowed during the forum, which was hosted by MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

Can’t say she’s wrong.

Just as Europe has its ‘anti-Fascist’ parties, the Democrats are now officially the ‘anti-white’ party.

The Science of Intellectual Tribalism

23rd January 2017

Jonah Goldberg turns over a rock.

“David Gelernter, fiercely anti-intellectual computer scientist, is being eyed for Trump’s science adviser.” — Washington Post, Jan. 18

Um. Well, huh.

For those unfamiliar with David Gelernter, he essentially created parallel computing, which sounds like witchcraft to me, but I’m told it’s a really big deal. He was also one of the first people to see the internet coming, in his 1991 book “Mirror Worlds.” Bill Joy, the co-founder of Sun Microsystems, described Gelernter as “one of the most brilliant and visionary computer scientists of our time.” Ted Kaczynski — aka “the Unabomber” — agreed, which is why he maimed Gelernter with a letter bomb in a 1993 assassination attempt.

Gelernter, who teaches computer science at Yale and has degrees in classical Hebrew, has written books and articles on history, culture, religion, artificial intelligence and philosophy. His acclaimed paintings don’t do too much for me, but that’s probably because I’m a bit of Philistine about these things.

Regardless, saying that Gelernter is “fiercely anti-intellectual” is a bit like saying Tiger Woods is fiercely anti-golf.

Accuracy has never never been a priority with the Washington Post that I can recall.

From 2009-2016, insulting or mocking the president’s kids was a career-ending offense. But now it’s back in a big way! Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left are lining up to pick on 10-year-old Barron Trump, because it makes them feel better about losing an election to his dad. Never mind that Barron’s just a kid. Never mind that he didn’t choose any of this. It’s OK to go after him, because he’s a child of wealth and privilege who’s not named Sasha or Malia.

Although having no previous journalism experience, Jarrett began at CNN in September. The New York Post notes that Jarrett was “quietly hired” by CNN.

Oscar Lopez Rivera’s Legacy of Terror Mostly Whitewashed by Univision

19th January 2017

Read it.

Univision’s report on President Barack Obama’s commutation of the prison sentence of convicted terrorist Oscar Rivera López is an astounding case study in fake news. The story, which went unreported on the evening ABC, CBS and NBC newscasts and was accorded a quick blurb at Telemundo, took top billing on Tuesday’s Univision newscast.

One of the fascinating parts of this story is the anchor lead-in. Most of the time, the anchor sows bias into a straight-up report from one of their field correspondents. However, this was not the case. María Elena Salinas was factual, accurate, and neutral in her lead-in. But then Lourdes Del Río took over, and with that came the fake news portion of the report.

CNN President: Donald Trump Wants To ‘Delegitimize Journalism’

18th January 2017

Read it.

The president of CNN said Donald Trump wants to “delegitimize journalism.”

Too late for that — fake news organizations like CNN have already accomplished that mission. Trump is just pointing out that the Emperor doesn’t have any clothes.

In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Jeff Zucker defended his network’s decision to report on an unsubstantiated 35-page dossier that claimed the Russian government has comprising information about the president-elect.

And the fact that he doesn’t see the problem with that illustrates how clueless he really is.

“I actually think this was a pretty easy call in terms of its news value,” Zucker said. “The fact is, the top four intelligence chiefs of the United States decided to include in their briefing to the president and president-elect a two-page summary of allegations involving the president-elect. That is newsworthy by any definition.”

What actually happened was that they included it as an example of the sort of ‘fake news’ that Trump needed to be warned about in his daily news briefings, not because it was a Real Story. This was just an attempt to smear Trump, and it blew up in their faces. ‘Mommeee! Johnny hit me BACK!’

Intersectional Feminist Catfights Turn Me On

16th January 2017

Jim Goad clues us in.

“Intersectionality,” which I’ve previously referred to as “Cannibalism Among The Oppressed,” refers to the highly amusing tendency of leftist identity politics to devolve into petty pissing matches about whose group has had a shittier, more miserable history. In case you didn’t realize, the more of a historical loser you are, the more advanced and noble you are as a human being. When it comes to shuffling the Progressive Stack, straight white Christian males go to the bottom of the deck by default. But if you just happen to be a one-armed HIV+ obese transgender black lesbian with multiple personality disorder, you might as well be the second coming of Gandhi.

To their befuddlement, white feminists are waking up to the fact that they are being herded to the back of the progressive bus due to their shamefully inescapable whiteness.

Kristol-nicht

16th January 2017

Read it.

There is probably not one issue that Bill Kristol and John Lewis agree on. Lewis is a partisan lefty who may be more of a dedicated Communist than Vladimir Putin.

Several years ago Lewis accused Tea Party protesters of spitting on him and calling him the “N-word” during a political stunt – the walk to the Capitol to vote for ObamaCare. There were cameras everywhere. The late Andrew Breitbart initially offered $10,000 to anyone who could prove it happened. There were no takers even when Breitbart upped the reward to $100,000. The reason Breitbart never payed out a dime is that John Lewis is a liar who’s reputation was built (and peaked) during the Civil Rights marches of the 1960’s.

And then there’s this reality, that while John Lewis may be a Civil Rights Icon™, Vladimir Putin is the head of a nation of 143 million with an estimated 7,000 nuclear weapons. And if Bill Kristol doesn’t respect that then who really has the problem?

The Enduring Whiteness of the American Media

13th January 2017

The Guardian is the iconic left-wing publication in the U.K., honestly partisan in a way that its counterparts in the U.S. (New York Times, Washington Post) avoid.

This article is a good example of the constant obsession with race that has occupied the Left since the 1970s; ‘progressives’ find racism everywhere, much the way that Jonathan Edwards found sin.

‘Not This White Woman’ Clothing Line Launched for Women to Show They Didn’t Vote for Donald Trump

13th January 2017

Read it.

Two women have created a line of clothing and accessories to rally home the message that they were not included in the 53 per cent of white women who voted for Donald Trump.

“We found ourselves wanting to tell people on the street, strangers on the subway, ‘it wasn’t me’,” they wrote on their website. “When visiting the Subway Therapy  Wall in New York City, Michelle added a sticky note that said, ‘not this white woman’. Karen and Michelle commiserated and collaborated and the idea of a t-shirt was born.”

The Left: It’s All About Race and Signalling.

“It’s hard to see how this really helps anyone or anything other than the conscience of the white women buying this sh*t. I’ll tell you, as a black woman, seeing that shirt doesn’t necessarily tell me you’re an ally or worth trusting any more than the sanely-dressed white woman next to you. It doesn’t tell me you understand intersectional feminism, All it says is you want people to know you’re not a complete asshole. The irony is, this shirt kinda does make you look like an asshole,” writer Kara Brown wrote.

I agree, although not for the same reason.

Booker Breaks With Precedent to Testify Against Sessions – and Earns Republican Rebuke

12th January 2017

Read it.

Senators who have some complaint to make about a nominee have all the time in the world when the nominee is discussed before the vote to make their complaints public, so what is the point of ‘testifying’ at the confirmation hearing?

That’s obvious: He’s auditioning to be the next Magic Negro.

Like Obama he passes the paper-bag-and-ruler test, and ‘talks like a white boy‘, so he’s not too black to be electable, but he’s kept a low profile up until now (including working amicably with Sessions in the Senate) and so he’s got to start the Virtue Signalling process to get the Trump Derangement Syndrome celebutards behind him, money-wise, as well as the Crustian rich white liberals from his own party.

This surprises me, because I had assumed that the next Magic Negro would be Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, but Patrick looks more black than Booker and is raking it in at Mitt Romney’s old firm, Bain Capital, so perhaps he’s only runner-up.

Golden Globe Coda

John Hinderaker points and laughs.

I wrote about the Trump hate-fest at the Golden Globes last night while the show was in progress, based on a news account. (I would rather get a root canal than watch a Hollywood awards program.) Subsequent to my post, Meryl Streep went completely over the top with Trump Derangement Syndrome, for which she has been appropriately bashed non-stop for the last 20-odd hours. Still, crazy as Streep’s screed was, I am not sure she topped Hugh Laurie’s claim that he won his award “at the last ever Golden Globes.” Did he mean to suggest that President Trump will somehow decree an end to Hollywood awards shows? Not even Trump’s biggest fans are that optimistic.

Tucker Savages College Prof Refusing To Back Up His Claim That ’98 Percent’ Of Scientists Believe In Global Warming

5th January 2017

Tucker Carlson brings the heat.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson stumped a California college professor, who claimed that “98 percent” of the world’s scientists believe in global warming, when he asked the academic how he reached his number.

California State University, Sacramento, professor Joseph Palermo went on Carlson’s show to defend a Huffington Post op-ed where he argued that Trump’s administration shouldn’t be allowed to use Twitter since they believed “the science of global warming is bogus.”

Palermo said some of his remarks were taken out of context, but Carlson pressed him on the claim he made during the interview Wednesday night — that 98 percent of scientists believe in the science behind extreme climate change scenarios.

Remember the Three Laws of SJW: Social justice warriors always lie, social justice warriors always double down, and social justice warriors always project.

Palermo is likely referring to the oft-touted “97 percent” consensus that human-emitted greenhouse gases can cause global warming, taken from a 2013 study by Australian researcher John Cook.

Cook’s study has been thoroughly debunked by experts who found the actual “consensus” is scarcely 0.3 percent.

A survey of 4,000 meteorologists and other climate experts who are members of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) found about one-third of them don’t agree with the so-called global warming “consensus” that humans are the cause of the most recent observed warming.

Science: It’s not just for the Crust any more.

MSNBC Anchor Wonders If Donald Trump Would Send Her to A Concentration Camp

Well, since we don’t have any concentration camps now that FDR is gone, perhaps we could send her to Iran instead; presumably, for a lesbian Marxist, the experience would be much the same. Unfortunately, since it would be Muslims, her progressive head couldn’t process it and would probably explode.

Either way, problem solved.

Isn’t it remarkable that most of the people whining loudly about how scared they are of Being Oppressed Under Donald Trump are people who Donald Trump would never even notice, much less be moved to do anything about? The guilty flee where no man pursueth.

Who’s Trolling Who?

5th January 2017

Read it.

The Internet – or the portions of it that I frequent – has lately become somewhat exercised (and among my friends rather entertained) by the news that Simon and Schuster has a quarter-million book deal with one Milo Yiannopoulos, leading to much frothing at the mouth in certain circles, as noted at the Passive Voice

Of course, Passive Guy kindly links to the original Guardian article which – surprise! – wasn’t written by our favorite village person of alternative intellect or whatever the current approved terminology is. No, the Grauniad’s latest effort is by a gentleman who is apparently in charge of the Chicago Review of Books, and who wishes it known to all and sundry (can you say virtue signaling? I knew you could) that his eminent publication will not be reviewing any S&S books.

Presumably all the Grauniad’s readers know who constitutes “the literary world” – namely their august selves. There are some nonconformist souls who happen to think that the definition is a bit broader and includes all authors, all publishers, and even (GASP!) readers. Leaving this question of terminology aside, take note of the description of Mr Yiannopoulous as “America’s most infamous internet troll”. Five words. Damn near as many lies. He’s British, he’s not a troll, internet or otherwise, he’s not infamous despite having a certain amount of notoriety, and he’s certainly not the most infamous anything I can think of right now.

Top Restaurant Critic Sparks Outrage After Writing a Zero-Star Review of Progressive Fast Food Restaurant

5th January 2017

Read it.

NYT restaurant critic Pete Wells wrote a scathing zero-star review of one branch of LocoL in California and has received a backlash as a result – some people have even canceled their subscriptions to the paper.

Part of the reason people have responded so strongly is that LocoL is a restaurant with honourable intentions – the idea behind the mini-chain is to offer good quality, healthy food at affordable prices to some of the poorest, most neglected neighbourhoods of the US.

Fans of the restaurant jumped to LocoL’s defence, arguing the critic had been unnecessarily harsh.

“Lovely takedown piece on a small company genuinely trying to make underserved communities better through food, innovation and employment,” commented one person on Facebook.

There is the ‘progressive’ mind in a nutshell (emphasis on the ‘nut’): If a restaurant is founded on Politically Correct principles, then it doesn’t matter whether the food is any good.

On the other hand, any tendency for someone at the New York Times to engage in Actual Journalism is good news. (As is anything that tends to get people to cancel their subscriptions, I say, but that’s just me.)

Academic Absurdity of the Week: Night at the Museum

4th January 2017

Read it.

From the abstract:

This article speaks to a post-human feminist museology. It argues that considerations of a feminist museology would benefit from engaging with post-human feminist dialogues currently unfolding within academia. Dynamic political landscapes and global circumstances challenge dualist paradigms. Theorizations of museums are not exempt from these challenges. Critiques of androcentricity indicate that feminist theorizations have never fully centred on “the human”, but always already contextualized how we affect the world, and how the world affects us. Discussions in this article follow Barad’s agential-realist theorization of the material-discursive practices that shape our understandings in and of the world, and Haraway’s notion of diffraction that engages the material and re-tools recordings of object histories as entangled human and non-human processes that can be taken apart and reassembled, making different possibilities possible. The article demonstrates that museological alternatives that emerge from conversations about entanglements not only aim to move beyond the paradigms they have been circling within for so long, but towards a re-thinking of museology and cultural heritage museums. Thus, considerations of a feminist post-human museology re-imagine museums as entangled becomings that make different possibilities possible.

Really — you can’t make this shit up.
