Casual GC that got a little out of hand. 🤷🏻♀️
I think what motivates many of these people is that they failed to attain the lifestyles they grew up with. They were spoiled & pampered by their boomer parents who provided everything except a blueprint for how to succeed in life without them.
So they go away to college to get their useless degrees in gender studies or sociology, only to be left with massive amounts of debt that they haven’t much chance of ever paying off unless they get a real job. Which they’re not about to do, because they have virtually no employment history since their parents have supported them through everything.
So rather than take responsibility (which they’ve never had to do), they decide to blame capitalism, teh patriarchy, colonialism or whatever for their immense failures in life. And socialism becomes the answer.
But deep down they know the truth, which is why they crave constant approval from each other. They surround themselves with goodthinking individuals and virtue signal into echo chambers, waiting for their turn to be reassured of their own moral standing.
Their “values” fluctuate with the trends, and they’re always sure to stay on top of whatever the correct opinion is. They’re also quick to call out any of their own who might occasionally step out of line because they live in fear of the day when they themselves might accidentally slip up, and the woke mob will descend on them like a pack of rabid wolves.
And so they seek to preemptively drive back the mob by always, always demonstrating their unfettered devotion to what the collective has deemed the proper opinions. They’d step over the corpses of their own mothers, their own CHILDREN to prove themselves.
Social justice notwithstanding, women make up 49.55% of the world population. Imagine defining yourself by your membership to this protected minority group. That’s what we saw last night from those sweet sister suffragettes.
Facebook was exploding with identity politics earlier from people who supposedly disavow identity politics. It started off as an argument over whether Anti-Zionism necessarily entails Anti-Semitism.
It quickly turned into an argument over who has the authority to decide what Anti-Semitism entails. Most of those who weighed in agreed that it could only be *subjectively* defined by actual Jews. 🙄
Only then they started arguing over who qualified as a legitimate Jew. Picture a Venn diagram with three circles — labeled ‘Religion’, ‘Ethnicity’, and ‘Ancestry’. That’s how many different definitions of ‘Jew’ there were. And anyone who fell outside of a particular category had no right to weigh in on what qualifies as Anti-Semitism.
It was like watching feminists argue over whether ‘TERF’ is a derogatory term.
People are seriously fucking insane. And it’s not just the Regressive Left — their “logic” is bleeding out onto the rest of humanity.
All right, everyone — listen up, because an astonishing number of you don’t seem to understand the overwhelming support behind Brett Kavanaugh, or how the SCOTUS confirmation process even works.
The President can nominate whomever he damn well pleases, and it’s up to the Senate whether or not to confirm. There isn’t an ideological litmus test, and it doesn’t matter how “mainstream” a nominee is, because the Supreme Court does not exist to represent YOUR interests OR mine. The only “interests” it represents are those of the United States Constitution. (Worth noting: Brett Kavanaugh is an utter caricature of Middle America.)
The only relevant concern is whether the nominee is capable of doing the job.
Think he lacks the experience to fill a seat? Fine. Think he doesn’t understand the Constitution, or how to properly apply it? That’s fine too. Have concerns about the candidate’s ethics, or do you otherwise question whether he can and will remain objective in his rulings? Then certainly, Senator, you should vote ‘no’.
But please, all of you screaming your heads off about Roe v. Wade — shut the fuck up already. You don’t actually believe Trump can be pressured into nominating someone who supports abortion; you’re just looking for an excuse to bitch about Trump.
If you had any serious concerns about Kavanaugh’s confirmation, you belonged taking them to your senator — not taking to the streets like savages or whining about it on social media.
(To anyone who contacted their senator’s office and THEN whined: 👍 But I hope they had the good sense to ignore you unless you actually had something constructive to say.)
I’m tired of all the mischaracterizations of Kavanaugh supporters, and of people reframing the issues around irrelevant topics instead of challenging our arguments directly.
This was NEVER about abortion — not for us. It was never about politics — not for us — and if you think this was a right-wing movement, you’re living in an echo chamber.
Standing With Brett was never about wanting him confirmed. It was never about the Patriot Act, or about Donald Trump, or the myth of male privilege, and we aren’t the ones seeking to politicize sexual assault.
Standing With Brett boiled down to three things:
(1) Upholding the integrity of the judicial nomination process.
(2) A reaffirmation of due process.
(3) A rejection of the #metoo movement and its underlying feminist ideology.
No matter where any one of us happens to stand politically, THESE were the three things we held in common.
We find the Borg unsettling because collectivism is abhorrent, and it violates every human instinct for self-preservation.
Picard is the embodiment of man’s highest potential, which is why Locutus is so terrifying — particularly when he’s assuring us that the situation is entirely without hope.
