The Morning Rant

During his sermon a couple of weeks ago, our pastor mentioned that recent events had caused to think about “privilege”, what it is and what it means. He suggested that a better word for it might be ‘blessings’. He didn’t specifically say this, but that fits in very well with the idea that progressivism is a heresy of Christianity. It’s actually not dignified enough to be a heresy, it’s more like a parody or lampoon.

The word ‘blessing’ carries with it the idea of fortune and favor, and concomitant gratitude, while ‘privilege’ immediately brings to mind envy, resentment, and bitterness. All of progressive religion is wrapped around those three (negative) things.…

…Another aspect of the progressive religion is that its disciples are taught that the reason they don’t have what they think they want (influence, success, a girlfriend) is because someone is deliberately preventing them from getting these things. This entity has been called such names as “The Man” or “The System” but lately has been called “White Privilege.” Like this is a zero-sum game where all of the white guys have taken all of it before anyone had the chance.

Age and Guile

I believe that this is why the most current most prominent spokes-idiot for the cause of countering Global Climate Change is a sixteen-year old spoiled child of Euro-privilege and bad parental/educational practice. And I will maintain that it is bad parental practice to allow teachers and mass media to scare the snot out of your offspring on a regular basis. Responsible parents are supposed to stand in the way of cranks, busybodies and propagandists, all of whom apparently get a great deal of satisfaction leaping out of metaphorical closets and yelling “Boo! Yer all gonna die!” just as they are supposed to stand in the way of their kids doing stupid things like getting neck tattoos and STDs. Well, I suppose that not all those people getting a rise out of scaring the snot out of kids can make horror movies, be Stephen King or even organize neighborhood haunted houses.

People have known throughout history that some people for whatever reason have an attraction to the same sex, women who have such an attraction are called “lesbians” People, even those who disapprove of this preference understand that these lesbians prefer the sexual company of other women. but liberal say that if a man declares himself a woman and a lesbian that any lesbian who reject them is a bigot.

Normalphobia

Democrats… the normalphobes.

The Left started this race war. They degrade citizenship. They trash Americans. They shoot at GOP congressmen and target pro-life high schoolers and chase people out of public spaces. They make the dangerous Nazi comparisons. They jeopardize our security and tranquility
Yep. The Democrats want another civil war.

Crazy People Are Dangerous

See, if you advocate locking up teenage dopeheads as juvenile delinquents, you’re racist or something. If you advocate locking up these maladjusted weirdos in psychiatric wards, you’re stigmatizing mental illness. Disapproving of sexual perversion makes you guilty of transphobia. Instead, now everyone is required to celebrate diversity and inclusion, which means keeping the drug-addled misfits in public high school and interpreting their unpopularity as “bullying,” because how dare your normal teenager not want to hang out with a couple of losers like this? And then one day, the freaks decide it would be really cool to shoot up the school more or less randomly. which then becomes an argument for (a) gun control and (b) more “anti-bullying” policies to protect deranged misfits from social disapproval.

Fashion, meet reality. It’s not nice.

Ladies, you’re free to insist on your rights and privileges all you want. I’ll fully support your right to do so. However, there are men out there – more than a few of them – who regard revealing women’s clothing as an open invitation to make use of what its wearers are advertising. They don’t give a damn about your individuality or your femininity or your freedom of choice. As far as they’re concerned, you’re a “ho” or a “bitch”, and you exist to satisfy their needs. That’s all.

College Students Not Mailing Absentee Ballots Because They Don’t Know Where to Buy Stamps

“One thing that came up, which I had heard from my own kids but I thought they were just nerdy, was that the students will go through the process of applying for a mail-in absentee ballot, they will fill out the ballot, and then, they don’t know where to get stamps,” Lisa Connors with the Fairfax County Office of Public Affairs said.

We really don’t need people this stupid voting. Raise the voting age. To 30. Hopefully they will be adult enough to have moved out of their parents’ basements.

Is There a Cure for the Modern University?

The reasons for the precipitous decline in academic rigor, standards, and outcomes are many and have been thoroughly canvassed.  It may be worth bulleting some of them here to suggest the scope of the problem: …

  • the transformation of a reading culture into a visual and digital culture, rendering students progressively incapable of mastering the nuances, complexities, and semantic rules of written language as well as the habit of, like, coherent, like, conversation.  Like, I kid you not, dude!

Kurt Schlichter – Don’t Let Liberals Win By Making You Care

I don’t mean that we are simply unconcerned about Donald Trump’s past hobbies. I mean that our depth and breadth of not caring is so deep and wide as to create a critical mass of not giving a damn of such intensity that it is brighter than a million suns.

We just don’t care what Trump did with his pneumatic bimbos – to the extent anyone even believes them. His critics don’t really seem to. They never gave a damn about this stuff until a Republican allegedly did something. Or until one did nothing – they were outraged about Mitt Romney too.

I’m soooo tired of the ‘care-Nazis’. That’s what Leftists are, ‘care-Nazis’, always insisting that YOU care about their pet peeves and you’re a racist-sexist-bigot-homophobe if you don’t.

I. Don’t. Care.

Reality-denying Progressives call MAGA supporters “losers”

In Leftist Land, there is no such thing as fixed gender, controlled by a person’s DNA. Instead, there are 63 genders, all of which morph constantly because all 63 genders are actually fluid. This means that, in Leftist Land, boys are girls and girls are boys and all are both and and many are nothing at all.

In Leftist Land, the appropriate response to a murderous Allahu Akhbar attack is to repeat ad nauseum that “Islam is a religion of peace.”
