Most pathetic thing I’ve read in a long time

This:

“It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voice in the Arts. I feel it is important to honour and respect that. Therefore I have decided to step down so the role can be cast appropriately,” the actor wrote in a statement. “Representation of ethnic diversity is important, especially to me as I have a mixed heritage family. It is our responsibility to make moral decisions in difficult times and to give voice to inclusivity. It is my hope that one day these discussions will become less necessary and that we can help make equal representation in the Arts a reality.”

I’ve never heard of Ed Skrein.  I don’t know the story behind Hellboy.  I have no intention of seeing the reboot, and I never saw the original.

But I just can’t get over this gibberish.  Did he just google “Social Justice Warrior” and “Arts” and copy and paste a bunch of phrases that came up?  I mean this is some of the most unoriginal conformist garbage I’ve ever read.  It literally has no meaning except to indicate he’s caving to a bunch of angry left wing tweeters that just look for any pretense to bash whitey.

Trump’s Betrayal

He’s committing more troops to Afghanistan. He won’t define victory. He won’t set a timetable to end the war. It will almost certainly continue to the end of his presidency whether he’s forced out by Christmas or he makes it through 2020.  It’s disgraceful.

Prior to his running for president, I hated Donald Trump.  I thought he was a smug jerk who was popular among the type of people who watch reality TV shows.  And of course he was just that.  When he would occasionally make political speeches he would often espouse a superficial philosophy on government that I felt was completely at odds with libertarianism.

But when he called out the entire political establishment on their bullshit beginning in 2015, it was a true Emperor has no Clothes moment.  He was telling it like it was.  I certainly didn’t agree with everything he was saying.  How could I when he constantly contradicted himself?  But he wasn’t afraid to stand up to the Bushes and Clintons, and their allies in the media.

I voted for Donald Trump.  I did it for three main reasons:

  1. Foreign policy.  He called the Bush and Obama wars failures that were based on lies. He said we should stay out of Syria. He said we could be friends with Russia.
  2. He promised to reduce immigration.
  3. He stood up to the PC bullies who seek to silence and humiliate anyone who doesn’t publicly appease the angry and increasingly irrational Left.

He’s betrayed his supporters on Foreign Policy.  He bombed Syria based on lies and because his foolish daughter felt more murder and destruction was an appropriate response to alleged murder and destruction.  However, I still held out some hope when he later abandoned the Obama-Hillary strategy of funding the no-win insurgency there against the Russian backed dictator.

But now he’s re-escalating Afghanistan?  Is there anyone outside of Washington, D.C. who doesn’t work for a military contractor that actually thinks this war benefits the average American citizen in any way?  Does anyone still buy the “safe haven” bullshit at this point when the 9/11 hijackers were all Arabs, mainly Saudis, who trained right here in the United States and received funds from other Saudis?  Are people still scared of the “Taliban” which at this point is really just a name applied to the Pashtuns who are the largest tribe in Afghanistan and are not going to be “defeated” (whatever that means) by a few thousand additional troops?

When it comes to immigration, despite the hysterics emanating from the Left and their media allies, I’m not aware of anything he’s done to actually reduce it.  I’ve heard estimates that illegal immigration is down slightly, but I don’t know how anyone verifies that.  There was a plan released from the Trump administration that would potentially reduce immigration so I suppose the jury is still out on that one, but I’m not holding my breath.

As for standing up to the media and the PC police in general, I’ll give him some credit for not totally caving.  I still get a kick out of him bashing CNN or seeing some Democrat/”Centrist” Republican get the vapors because he refuses to ignore Left-wing violence and focus exclusively on a few powerless idiots wearing Nazi flags as the main threat to our freedom.

But even on this point, he’s allowed his true allies to be forced out of the White House after only a few months seemingly to placate the people that hate him and propagate lies that he’s a secret Nazi colluding with the evil Russians.  He now has himself surrounded by a bunch of ex-Generals and standard GOP henchmen.  As a result you see his idiotic flip-flop on the never ending Afghan Terror war.  It wouldn’t surprise me if they talk him into sounding more and more like Mitt Romney when it comes to condemning the evil “right wing,” i.e. anyone who doesn’t believe in the latest insane leftist orthodoxy surrounding  tansgenderism, white privilege, or the ability of certain statues to harm black people.

It truly is a sad day in the once free United States of America.

If CNN doesn’t like your joke you’re promoting violence

According to our betters at CNN, by posting this childish, very cheaply produced internet video, I’m promoting violence against the poor defenseless media who just want to tell us all ridiculous lies the truth and hold the despicable Trump monster accountable for his sin of beating their preferred candidate colluding with the evil Russians to subvert our cherished kleptocracy Democracy.

I mean it’s not like the sainted mainstream media or CNN has ever promoted violence.

I especially love the endorsement from Dick Cheney at the end.

The UN wants to replace the population of the United States

And Europe and Japan and Korea and Russia.  It will all work out.  After all, Europe and the United States aren’t prosperous societies because of the people and culture that have lived and developed in these places over centuries.  It’s all magic dirt or something.  Import someone from East Timor to Green Bay and they’re instantly as American as apple pie and will grow the economy and everything will be fucking awesome.

the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

And if you have any concerns about millions of Africans, Asians, and “Latin” Americans moving into your country, state, city, or neighborhood, then you’re just a racist deplorable who needs to be replaced.

The population of the United States has tripled in the past 100 years.  So obviously it needs to triple again in even less time.  It needs to keep growing forever.  I mean that’s just an unquestionable gospel truth.  The end.

 

Good for Trump

He backed out of the Paris Accord on Climate Change.  I support the decision so that obviously means the following things about me are true:

I am a climate denier.  I deny that there is a climate.

I hate the environment. I want to destroy it.

I love pollution.

I want people to die.

I am racist.

The most important thing in the world to me is that oil companies make big profits.

I hate “renewable energy.”

I don’t believe in science.

Did I miss anything?

By the way, all of this is symbolic.  These non-binding “accords” and “protocols” to combat “climate change” do nothing to reduce carbon emissions.  They are an excuse in Europe to raise taxes on energy, and in the United States to issue more environmental regulations that favor certain businesses, but no country ever meets the ridiculous targets.  Is there anyone who believes that carbon emissions in 2025 were actually going to be 1/4 of what they were in 2005 just because some president signed a piece of paper in 2016?

Remember the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 that Bill Clinton signed, but never even attempted to have ratified by the Senate?

“You have to judge Kyoto to have been a failure. Just on the merits of what was done as a result of the agreement and countries not actually living up to their commitments or staying with the agreement,”

 

Why the center left hates Trump more than other Republicans

Good article by Jeff Tucker (not always a huge fan), on the Trump Derangement Syndrome currently afflicting those on the center Left.  Trump is unintentionally destroying people’s faith in the sanctity of the American State.  He’s not doing this by actually attacking the government.  In fact the government will almost certainly continue to grow under his administration.  No, it’s because of this:

he is ruining the mystery of the state, and thereby discrediting their holy institutions.

Progressive violence

Interesting footage of the Berkeley riot.  Worth watching to see what so called “student protesters” are really all about.

I’d like to point out one thing about this video.  A brief clip of Cenk Uygur at the 4:55 mark. Kudos to Uygur for condemning the riots.  However, I have to call bullshit on this specific remark: “a true progressive doesn’t do violence by definition.”

I guess the following people were not true progressives despite being identified as such: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Bill Ayers, Franklin Roosevelt, Barack Obama. These men were certainly willing to “do violence” in an attempt to achieve their supposedly progressive ends.

The entire progressive philosophy has, since its inception, been predicated on violence. Even when not rioting (which by the way they do a lot), progressives want to force people to behave in a way that conforms to their worldview.  That’s the whole point.  And they want to use government violence to achieve this if they are unable get their way through mere intimidation.

An example of progressivism in action is drug prohibition.  Progressives in the early twentieth century insisted on the regulation and eventual outlawing of the possession or sale of substances they didn’t like.  This even included alcohol for a period of time.  Failure to follow these rules meant being locked up in a government dungeon as punishment. Interestingly, decades later when the political Left changed their minds and decided drugs were great they turned around and blamed conservatives for what their forbears had instituted.  Conservatives had begun to agree with them on this issue so of course their attitudes shifted.  (It should be noted that conservatives have no problem using government violence either.  They are, however, less inventive in coming up with new rules to enforce.)

Income tax is another progressive era invention.  Does anyone really believe that millions of Americans would voluntarily hand over a third of their income to the State if the IRS wasn’t prepared to use violence to enforce payment?

Today we see equally disturbing policies that seek to upend cultural norms under threat of force.  Don’t want to bake a cake for a gay wedding?  Don’t want to let men identifying as women use the ladies’ restroom?  Don’t want to hire a certain percentage of minorities or women to work at your company?  In some rare cases progressives may show up and smash your windows or beat you up.  But of much greater concern is that In certain arbitrary circumstances, making any of these decisions can result in your business being taken away from you.  You may also be forced to pay thousands of dollars to someone who was offended by your actions even though no actual physical harm was inflicted on that person. Government guns are the enforcement mechanism for all of this even if most progressives choose to ignore that aspect of their ideology.

Sorry Cenk, progressivism equals violence.  It always has.  It always will.  It cannot exist without violence.

Racially motivated kidnapping in Chicago

Four black people in Obama’s hometown, who seem to hate Donald Trump and white people in general, kidnapped and tortured a mentally disabled white man.  Unlike all the alleged hate crimes committed by white Trump supporters against blacks, gays, muslims, latinos, etc. that always turn out to be fake, this crime is not really in doubt.  The perpetrators videotaped the torture and uploaded it to Facebook.

Don’t expect to see much coverage of this on NBC or CNN.
