Unethical Sham

0

For the record, I am utterly appalled at the way Brett Kavanaugh has been abused by Senate Democrats, the media, and my son’s paternal grandmother.  I’ve had more than enough of the Democratic Party weaponizing mentally-ill women against the rest of us by hand-feeding them Marxist-feminist ideology and spite.

I can only imagine what Brett and his family must be going through, and anyone who wasn’t moved by his tears when he spoke of his ten-year-old daughter is a fucking monster.

I mean it — these Pussy Hats are complete sociopaths, and they’ve done more harm to women than I would have imagined possible when they began crawling out of the woodwork in 2011.

We cannot allow such neo-Stalinist tactics to continue.  Kavanaugh needs to be voted up or down, and Creepy Porn Lawyer just needs to go away.

Never thought I’d want to fist-bump a Republican so badly:

My Thoughts on 9/11

In Europe, people are afraid to call out Islamic terrorism for fear of being targeted — or otherwise violating some ridiculous “hate speech” law, resulting in fines or even imprisonment.

In America, we’re afraid to call out Islamic terrorism for fear of being labeled “racist”.

The verdict?  The terrorists won.  And Islamic terrorism is going to keep on winning unless we can agree to speak openly and honestly about it without fear of unwarranted reprisals.

This doesn’t mean we need another round of Team America World Police or any further invasions of our privacy.

What it does mean is not being afraid to identify the motives of people who have dedicated themselves to the destruction of an entire civilization.  It means recognizing religious extremism for what it is rather than drawing from an arsenal of ad hominems, red herrings, and false equivocations whenever someone proves bold enough to raise the subject.

It means recognizing that while Christians have indeed been responsible for some of the worst atrocities in human history — and Hindu extremists seem poised to slaughter Muslims over every little religious beef (lol plz) — the predominant form of religious terrorism the world faces today is Islamic.

It also means recognizing that condemning radical Islam does not make one Islamophobic.  (Nor a racist, seeing how we’ve managed to extend the concept of race further than any other society in human history.)

Why aren’t we as willing to identify acts of Islamic terrorism as we are so-called “hate crimes”?  Is it somehow more acceptable to despise an entire civilization, rather than an ethnicity or skin color?

If so, would it not follow that the man who kills a stranger over the color of his skin is somehow LESS guilty than the man who kills over a personal grudge?

Facts may be swept under the rug to keep our Safe Spaces looking pristine, but Reality has a way of creeping up behind us.  And sooner or later, Reality will sweep the rug right out from under our feet.

To those who seek to hold Western Civilization responsible for Islamic terrorism:

Can you imagine blaming the Jews for the Holocaust?

Can you imagine blaming the slaves for the bloodiest war in our nation’s history?

Was the rape victim “asking for it” because of the manner in which she dressed?

If you answered ‘no’ to all three questions, then you likely hail from a modern, liberal society — be you from the East or the West.  For this very reason, there are people who would like to see you dead.

We need to stop whitewashing the past and present for fear of offending Muslims — most of whom don’t have a goddamned thing to do with terrorism anyway.

And to anyone looking to blame the Western world for the overall violence in the Middle East: I encourage you to open a history book, because the Middle East has been a hotbed of violence since the dawn of civilization.  It predates Israel, it predates America — it even predates Islam.

Thoughts on SCOTUS

The whole SCOTUS nomination-confirmation process has become a joke.  I nominate my guy, your guys try to knock him down, and when it’s your turn, I’ll do the same to you.  When the two-party system system seeps into our highest courts (as it did long ago), then we’re in trouble.

SCOTUS judges are supposed to be impartial; they’re not supposed to have ties to any political factions, but the reality is that unless they have those ties, they’re not about to get nominated.

A few things to keep in mind, though:

(1) SCOTUS judges picked by Republican presidents have been traditionally less likely to engage in judicial activism (i.e., legislating from behind the bench) or otherwise let their personal views influence their rulings.

(2) They have also proven more resistant to party ideology, as evidenced by how many times Republican-appointed judges have pissed off Republican presidents and legislators.  You almost never see this happen with Democrats, and standing up to the other two branches is why we have a SCOTUS in the first place.

(3) Judges picked by Republicans have always had the better track record when it comes to protecting individual liberties.  The sole exception to this lies with abortion, but the reality is that Roe v. Wade is in no danger of being overturned at the Federal level.  The real threats to abortion (and they are legion) come from the states.

FACEBOOK: RE Alex Jones Ban

Facebook has a right to ban whomever the hell they want, but at the same time, they deserve every criticism, because as self-proclaimed advocates of “social responsibility”, this was the most socially-irresponsible thing they could do.

People are quite literally celebrating this decision and embracing the notion that instead of ignoring or refuting bad ideas (or differences of opinion, inconvenient facts, whatever), the solution is to delete them.

FACEBOOK: RE2make

Mixed feelings about this RE2 remake, which is reportedly in the works once more. On the one hand, the notion of any remake always leaves me feeling queasy (unless it involves Karl Urban), and the PS1 original boasted the most brilliantly-satisfying video game storyline in the entire history of our species (times infinity-plus-one). It would kill me to witness the sanctity of its plot violated for the sake of better graphics and a bit of additional content.

On the other hand, the ’02 GameCube REmake was so freaking delicious, I wanted to have 1000 of its babies. (And still do.) If Capcom thinks they can pull this one off on the level of the GC REmake, I will magnanimously grant them both my permission and my blessing.

On the third hand (which protrudes from my left flank, William-Birkin style), the fact that they plan to recast ALL the voice actors is unsettling. Who can conceive of Claire Redfield sine the vocal croons of Alyson Court? Or — in this day and age — a better LSK than Matt Mercer? Surely the citizens of Raccoon City deserve better.
