Unleashing the Power of Mockery on Annoying Social Justice Warriors

 

In a culture where humorless leftists scolds seek to impose their rule upon us normals by sucking every drop of joy out of life, it is the conservative smartass who is the true subversive. Don’t look to Hollywood’s allegedly edgy comics to zing the zeitgeist – hacky proggy stand-ups and interchangeable liberal late-night hosts are the opposite of rebels, with their dreadfully generic opinions and lockstep jokes designed to get the herd of trained seals that makes up their fish-breathed audience beating their flippers. No, if you want someone who snarks truth to power instead of speaking consensus coastal truth to the powerless, you gotta step to the right.

And Lisa de Pasquale is one of these conserva-revolutionaries, a young woman who is in equal parts funny and fearless. She has a new book dropping, The Social Justice Warrior Handbook: A Practical Survival Guide for Snowflakes, Millennials, and Generation Z, and it does exactly what today’s embattled conservatives need to do – it goes full bull in the progressive china shop.

Lisa is a friend, and her publisher also published my book Conservative Insurgency, so feel free to exercise your natural and proper suspicion that this is mere logrolling and check out the preview before you fork over your money. As I teach my kids, trust no one (This is a family theme – Judge Mom’s advice to me after she swore me into the California Bar was “Everybody lies.”). Felonia von Pantsuit might think the central message of 1984 was “Mindlessly obey the ruling caste,” but the undeniable fact is that our institutions have failed us, and no one presuming to speak from authority deserves your unthinking, reflexive trust. Sarcasm and cynicism are not merely appropriate responses to decades of lies and failure by those posing as our betters; they are torches we can now use to burn down the whole rotten edifice of progressive cultural tyranny.

Lisa is all about the arson. With The SJW Handbook, she turns her flamethrower on that most annoying manifestation of liberalism’s intellectual bankruptcy and infatuation with tyranny, the Social Justice Warrior. Lisa sums up their twisted world-view thusly: “Every day we see people driving their cars, going to their jobs, spending time with their friends and families. They are oblivious to how they contribute to the problems in America.”

You need to understand that SJWs are the leads in a giant personal psychodrama they want to suck us all into. But they aren’t traditional heroes – they’re far too goofy. Think of SJWs as the nerds in Revenge of the Nerds, except these nerds aren’t sympathetic fringies. They’re malignant manipulators who act like the jocks and want to make the rest of us as miserably friendless and loveless as they are. Instead of giving their victims wedgies, the babbling bullies of the left want to whine us into submission.

These suburban-born aspiring Red Guards aim to lead their own Cultural Revolution from safe havens within academia and deep in the fetid bowels of the internet, but they’d just be yet another group of hapless leftist losers except that they discovered how to exploit a key vulnerability. They learned they can rely upon the dedication to reason and essential decency of normal people to protect them from what should be the painful consequences of their actions. SJWs succeed for one reason, and one reason only – too few people simply burst into laughter when these mayo-loving white people with dreads and daddy issues announce that today they identify as black, or that prominent Jewish conservatives are “Nazis,” or that some women have penises.

SJWs deserve nothing but contempt and the merciless ridicule that goes with it. Yet, sadly, we Americans are usually reflexively too polite to deliver the verbal beatdowns these dorks deserve. Because we are genuinely nice people, we generally assume that other people are acting in good faith even when what they are saying is manifestly idiotic. We tend to think, “Hmmmm, that sounds really insane, but I should give this person the benefit of the doubt and react in a polite manner when she bursts into tears because, she says, my not accepting that men can menstruate is a hate crime.”

What we should think, and say, is “You’re stupid, so stop talking and finish filling my latte order, weirdo.”

SJWs prey on that default presumption of good faith, knowing that normals will assume SJWs sincerely mean whatever idiocy they spew. But the truth is that all this nonsense about microaggressions and such is just a way to impose their fussy control over us. The remedy, as these Millennial morons might say, is for us normals to “get woke” to the SJW okie-doke, and to recognize that their whole deal is to silence us by socially criminalizing anything we say, do, and believe.

Lisa is having none of their nonsense. A long-time veteran of the conservative movement (for years she organized and ran CPAC, the Woodstock for people who yearn to see Mike Pence up close or watch Ted Cruz do an acoustic set), Lisa gets it. But she also gets life – her book Finding Mr. Righteous was an eye-opening and, at times, agonizingly honest look at a young woman’s journey in modern America, specifically the conservative world. She knows how to write about people with a particular identity without making it about that identity, so she’s the perfect choice to go after nimrods who are nothing but their chosen identity.

And Lisa gets medieval on them.

The SJW Handbook is just that, a faux guide to how to be a crying, bitter baby demanding that mommy and daddy submit to his, her or xir’s increasingly ridiculous commands. And by writing it, Lisa provides a template for us to do what we all need to do all the time – see through their lies and strip them of their power by ruthlessly mocking these proto-fascist geebos until they flee back to their safe spaces.

As Lisa writes, “If you’re new to fighting, your best option is the sucker punch.” The SJWs have brilliantly provoked a battle within the Octagon, except the only weapon allowed is the one they excel at using, whiny words (They would so not dig a real fight on us normals’ terms). Sure, they sometimes throw on masks, gather into groups, and start some actual violence, but that only happens on the rare occasions where they vastly outnumber their opponents and the cops are ordered to retreat. When there’s push-back, they fold. It’s all a pose; they aren’t really about violence beyond trying to score with woke sophomorettes by wearing shirts memorializing Cuban butchers. The SJW’s weapons are words, and they depend on our default courtesy to make us respectfully listen to whatever stupid thing they have to say.

That needs to stop. Lisa’s book is a welcome diss track that should motivate us all to provide the proper response to these campus communists and academic anarchists the next time they start flapping their quinoa holes: “Hey jerks, I got your revolution right here.”

You heard it here first!

Mexico and Latin America is “Nazi Germany”. So sayeth the DNC Chairman.
Democratic National Committee co-chair Keith Ellison (D-MN) said that every illegal immigrant should be given sanctuary, saying that the situation is no different than the Jews fleeing from the Nazis.

“I’m going to tell you right now, I’m one of them people who believes you should give your neighbors sanctuary,” he said. “If you ask yourself, ‘what would I do if I was a gentile in 1941 if my Jewish neighbors were under attack by the Nazis? Would I give them sanctuary?’ … You might be about to find out what you would do,” he added.

And since they are “fleeing” Latin America, and most specifically Mexico and seeking “sanctuary” here in the neighboring US that makes the place they are escaping from… <<drum Roll>> “Nazi Germany”. 🙂

We all know he meant The US Government under Trump are Nazis, but that would mean they were fleeing towards the Nazis not away from them. That they want to sue The Nazis for wanting to deport them for being in the country illegally (not hunt them down and gas them). Hey Adolph I’m going to sue you!

Heil DACA!??

Where is the Underground going to secret them away– Canada? Because California is still under the US Government- The Nazis- last I checked. 🙂

Don’t you just love when partisan fear-mongering rhetoric goes haywire….

So Frank Giaccio (he goes by FX) wrote to President Donald Trump and asked if he could mow the White House lawn.

“Even though I’m only 10, I’d like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. I admire your business background and have started my own business,” he wrote, adding that he has mowed his neighbors’ lawns “for some time.” He also offered to bring “extra fuel” for the lawnmower.

Knowing an entrepreneur when he sees one, Trump took him up on the offer and invited him to mow the lawn of the Rose Garden.

White Privilege for sure… 🙂

 

Segregation is Cool Again

University will host dinners as part of ‘racial reconciliation’ program

To promote “racial reconciliation” after the deadly clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville last month, Brown University plans to offer segregated events to its black students and female Muslim students.

The university received a $30,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities, which represents liberal arts schools, to create a campus center whose mission is to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” according to The Brown Daily Herald.

These grants, provided with the assistance of the Newman’s Own Foundation and W.K. Kellogg Foundation, will go towards hosting racially and religiously segregated “dinner discussion groups.” These discussions are being led by Brown University Chaplain Rev. Janet Cooper Nelson, who told The Daily that “one [group will be] for black students and the other [will be for] for Muslim women on campus.”

Nelson told The Daily she hopes that the Muslim women’s dinner group will “allow the women to engage in topics such as the intersection of race, Islam and gender fluidity.”

Nelson did not respond to The College Fix’s request for comment, nor did Brown’s media relations department.

The Fix also reached out to the university’s Black Student Union for comment on the black student discussion dinner. The group did not respond.

The Association of American Colleges and Universities has charged Brown and nine other universities with “addressing the historic and contemporary effects of racism and leading transformative change,” according to a press release from Brown.

The initiative seeks to “educate, prepare and inspire the next generation of leaders to advance justice and build equitable communities.”

According to The Daily, the American Association of Colleges and Universities will host the inaugural “Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Institute” this January in Washington, D.C. Representatives from the ten chosen campuses will attend the institute in order to “develop transformative action plans to advance racial healing,” AACU spokeswoman Anne Jenkins told The Fix via email.

Recent years have seen an increased push for segregated spaces and events on campuses across the country.

Last spring, Harvard hosted its first-ever blacks-only student graduation ceremony; a number of other universities hosted similar segregated graduation events. Last winter, students at the University of Michigan demanded a “no-whites-allowed space.” A year ago California State University’s Los Angeles campus offered segregated housing for black students.

And in May, American University barred white students from a cafe in order to create a “sanctuary” for nonwhite students, a demand the provost of the university called “reasonable.”

 

ObummerCare

So this is what Democrats feel is wonderful and The Republicans refuse to deal with…
Next year, average benchmark premiums for Obamacare plans are expected to rise 15 percent more than they did this year, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office.

“In 2018, the agencies project, the average benchmark premium will be roughly 15 percent higher than it was in 2017.
Additionally, premiums for benchmark plans are expected to rise an average of 5 percent each year from 2017 through 2027.

The budget office projects that average premiums will total $3,400 for a 21 year old, $4,800 for a 45 year old, and $9,800 for a 64 year old this year.

So what happened to it going down $2500? Hmmmm???

Additionally, the report finds that due to higher premiums, the number of uninsured individuals is expected to increase.

“For 2026, the agencies’ projection of the number of people obtaining subsidized coverage through the marketplaces is now 4 million smaller, and the projected number of uninsured people is now 3 million larger, than they were in CBO’s March 2016 baseline projections,” the budget office said. “Between 2017 and 2018, the number of uninsured people rises by 2 million in the agencies’ projections, mainly because premiums in the nongroup market are expected to be higher.”

Gee, If we get rid of Obamacare millions will be uninsured was fear-mongering.
Just the facts.

And people hate facts these days.

63 Counties Projected to Have No Obamacare Insurer in 2018 according to a report from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
1,472 counties will only have one insurer participating on the exchange. “It is also projected that 1,472 counties—over 45 percent of counties nationwide—could have only one issuer in 2018. This could represent more than 2.6 million Exchange participants with only one health insurance option, which means they will not have any choices.”

Individuals who will be living in an area where there is no insurer offering coverage will still be bound by Obamacare’s individual mandate to purchase health insurance or be forced to pay a penalty.

This is what you are fighting to keep?

The Freedom From Information Act

I submit to you that the core problem with Berkeley has just fully exposed itself. 200 “Professors” there have signed a letter demanding that the entire University be shut down during “Free Speech Week” because “There are forms of speech not protected by the First Amendment.” What forms? Why, the forms that might come out of a Conservative or Libertarian speakers mouth, of course. If only Leftists had been scheduled to speak, there would be no letter. These 200 “professors” have just proven themselves unfit to guide young minds… because they aren’t guiding them, they are indoctrinating them.-Brian from Thoughtcrime Resistance

Liberal Educasyion at it’s finest.

You know what’s ironic about all the stress and nashing of teeth over a Conservative being invited to speak at the Epicenter of what was The Free Speech Movement because there could be “violence” and protests about Free Speech.
If it was Bernie Sanders or Elisabeth Warren or some other Leftist there would not only be no concern at all, there would be no protestors either.
Ironic, don’t you think?

UC Berkeley Faculty Calls for Campus-Wide Boycott of Class

Faculty, staff claim ‘there are forms of speech that are not protected under the First Amendment’

Over 200 University of California, Berkeley professors and faculty are calling for the shutdown of classes and activities during “free speech week,” an event scheduled Sept. 24 to 27 that features some “alt-right” speakers.

In an open letter to Berkeley community and campus members, the group called for the boycott of classes and for the closing of all buildings, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“Therefore, as faculty committed to the safety of our students and our campus, we are calling for a complete boycott of all classes and campus activities while these Alt-Right events are taking place at the very center of UC Berkeley’s campus,” the letter said.

The faculty believes the university should not ask students and staff to choose between “risking their physical and mental safety,” and coming to campus for class or work.

“As faculty we cannot ask students and staff to choose between risking their physical and mental safety in order to attend class or come to work in an environment of harassment, intimidation, violence, and militarized policing,” the letter said.

The Berkeley Patriot, a conservative campus publication, is responsible for inviting a number of  speakers connected to Milo Yiannopoulos to the four-day event. The student group has not filled out all appropriate paperwork for the event, but campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof did confirm the group has reserved the Sproul Plaza steps for the event. Speakers include Yiannopoulos, Anne Coulter, and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Yiannopoulous and Coulter have both had events cancelled at the university in the past year. Conservative personality Coulter was scheduled to speak at the university in April, but she canceled the event after a conflict between her and school officials, who feared violence could break out. Berkeley College Republicans had invited right-wing provocateur Yiannopoulos to speak last February. The event was “abruptly canceled when masked left-wing anarchists rioted outside the event to shut it down,” according to Fox News.

The faculty and staff who wrote the letter acknowledged UC Berkeley is “bound by the Constitution to allow all viewpoints on campus,” but also said there are “forms of speech that are not protected under the First Amendment.”

“We recognize that as a public institution, we are legally bound by the Constitution to allow all viewpoints on campus. However, there are forms of speech that are not protected under the First Amendment,” the letter said. “These include speech that presents imminent physical danger and speech that disrupts the university’s mission to educate.”

University Chancellor Carol Christ addressed the campus free speech issues in an interview Thursday.

“Free speech has itself become controversial,” she said.

The university is taking precautions leading up the event in the wake of past Berkeley protests that turned violent, and growing tension on campuses around the country. Bomb-sniffing dogs, barricades, and the shutting down of main street have all been seen on campus.

“We take so seriously the safety of our students, the security of our campus, that we have to prepare for the worst even hoping that the worst won’t happen,” Christ said.

Conservative commentator and Daily Wire editor in chief Ben Shapiro spoke on campus Thursday night. The event was relatively peaceful compared to past events, and was described by UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Moguofl as “successful.” Security costs for the event were estimated at $600,000, and authorities arrested nine individuals.

Following the event, Shapiro commented on lessons learned from what he described as a “terrific” visit.

“The students were engaged; the police were finally allowed to do their jobs. Antifa stayed away. Sure, there were protesters—lots of them. That’s great! It’s a free country, and they’re free to say whatever stupid nonsense they want to,” Shapiro said.

Hillary….Hillary…Hillary

John Hawkins: Have you heard about Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened?. She could have saved everyone time by just writing out a list called The 349 People, Places And Things Other Than Myself That I Blame My Failure On….. She lost because of Bernie Sanders. Because of white people. Because of “Bernie Bros,” sexism, and Russians. Because the press coverage wasn’t favorable enough. If you can come up with an excuse, she put it in the book somewhere.

At one point, while doing the publicity tour for this monstrosity, she actually said, “What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I’m really asking. I’m at a loss.” So, as a public service to Hillary Clinton and the legions of her fans who seem to think she’s practically perfect (No, really. I’ve been listening to them for months on Twitter. It’s bizarre), I’ve put together this short, handy list explaining reasons why so many people hate Hillary Clinton that go beyond her socialistic political beliefs. Granted, there are many other things we could add from her horrible cackle to the fact she seems like the most scripted person on earth to her ridiculous lies (I landed under sniper fire in Bosnia) to the hypocritical way she treated the women her husband abused, but let’s just hit the high points, shall we?

#1) Her whole campaign could have been boiled down to “Vote for me because I’m a woman:” Being a woman isn’t a qualifier for being President. In and of itself, it’s not even a qualifier for being a Hooter’s waitress. The insulting assumption that she was owed votes because she’s female and that people who disliked her were automatically sexist was incredibly annoying, especially after eight years of being told that everyone who disagreed with Obama was a racist. In fact, Hillary can insultingly chalk it all up to sexism if she likes, but as my friend Amanda Carpenter said, “Hillary’s problems with likability aren’t problems shared by our whole gender no matter how much she wishes it so.”

#2) Hillary’s entire claim to fame is being married to Bill: If Tom Brady gets hurt tomorrow, your top choice to replace him as quarterback wouldn’t be his wife. Take Bill out of the equation and Hillary would have been lucky to have a career as a town councilwoman in Dung Heap, Arkansas. Say whatever you want about someone like Sarah Palin, but at least she earned her spot at the top and didn’t just glom on to the right man while shouting some variation of “Girl Power” every 5 minutes.

#3) She’s hopelessly corrupt: This is a woman who got away with taking bribes via cattle futures when her husband was in the Arkansas governor’s mansion, using her position as Secretary of State to do pay for play with the Clinton Foundation and offloading classified data onto an illegal, private server. We hear endless complaining from Hillary and her supporters about James Comey, but he started preparing to exonerate Clinton before the investigation was even over. That’s typical. I’d be in jail if I’d done 1/10 of what Hillary has done. So would you. So would any Republican, including Donald Trump. But, all of us have learned that Hillary will always get special treatment and it disgusts most people. You can talk about non-existent “white privilege” or any other type of privilege you want, but nothing will ever beat “Clinton privilege.”

#4) She felt entitled to be President because of her last name: When the GOP primary cranked up, Jeb Bush was the presumptive nominee. He had amassed an enormous war chest; his last name was Bush and he didn’t really seem to care that much about what all the peasants who would be voting in the primaries thought. We all know how that worked out. Jeb got his clock cleaned. Well, Hillary was the Jeb candidate on the Left (except much less qualified) and the reaction to her was even more negative because her smug insistence that the presidency was hers based on her gender and last name was rewarded with the Democrat nomination.

#5) She’s simply not a very nice person: Conservatives remember when Hillary callously said, “I can’t be responsible for every undercapitalized small business in America,” when she was asked about her health care plan bankrupting small businesses. They didn’t miss it when she listed “Republicans” among her enemies at a Democrat debate. They recall her saying, “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it.” It did not slip past them when Wikileaks leaked out this comment from John Podesta, “I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I’m running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion.” They’ve seen the stories about her demanding “White House workers never speak to her and hide behind the drapes” when she came around. They heard her laugh while discussing getting a man who raped a 12 year old girl off easy. They saw the stories about the abusive way she treated the Secret Service agents who were ready to take a bullet to save her life. This is not someone you want to hang out with, have a beer with or be on the same planet with unless it’s absolutely necessary.

Players

Welcome to the “evil” part of “the lesser of two evils.” Donald Trump was never the conservative ideologue many of us wanted in 2016, but he was the guy we needed in 2016 – the one thing standing between us and the very real risk of splitting the country apart that was a Hillary Clinton presidency. So, as The Donald jumps in the canoe with Chuck Schumer – who is laughing at him hysterically right now – we’re experiencing the downside of playing a sub-par hand, and we’re experiencing it good and hard.

The Never Trumpers, who by and large agree with the Smarmy Dope and the Elderly Establishment Ninja Turtle about rewarding the world’s oldest kids for breaking the law, are ecstatic because the most important thing for them is stamping out the GOP insurgency that brought Trump to power and imperils their sinecures inside Conservative, Inc. They are babbling about “betrayal” as if we’re surprised that Trump would do what he essentially hinted he would do all along – sadly, Trump always accepted the sob story policy premise underlying DACA.

So, though the haters like to personalize it, it’s not so much that Trump is changing his position, because he’s always telegraphed that this was his position, but that he’s being so stupid as to let Chuck Schumer make a fool out of him. He and Nancy Pelosi have dinner with him, then walk out and basically disrespected him in public in a way sure to turn his base against him. It was actually a brilliant move on the Dems’ part, in a volcano-lair supervillain kind of way.

And for some reason Trump is just taking it. Maybe he really thinks Americans are dying for liberalism disguised as bipartisan compromise. Until now, he has had a pretty good political sense. He beat Felonia von Pantsuit, despite all the overwhelming odds stacked against her in the form of opposition from the media, women, other progressives, and Russians, among the dozens of other culprits responsible for her defeat. But this Amnesty, Jr., move? It’s just stupid.

Is Trump really so wimpy as to let Chuckie channel Wimpy and actually buy into the Democrat con man’s “Give me amnesty now and I will gladly pay you back, with all sorts of unspecified border security stuff, Tuesday” scam? It kind of looks like he is – how can Trump not see that Tuesday will never, ever come? To carry the cartoon metaphor forward, Charlie Brown’s tried to kick that football before, and it always gets pulled away, and now he’s lying over there in traction with multiple popped discs. Lesson One for every Republican, which every Republican seems incapable of learning, is to not be Charlie Brown.

Mr. President, don’t be Charlie Brown, or the guy who lent Wimpy some burger money, or the latest Republican to negotiate with Chuck Schumer and think he’s made a great deal even though he ends up coming home wearing a barrel. Remember Little Marco Rubio? He got in bed with Chuck Schumer on immigration and in the morning he found that Chuck had left and that his car keys, wallet and political future were gone too.

Mr. President, don’t be Marco Rubio, who incidentally is also laughing at you right now. They are all laughing at you right now. And you’re just taking it, like a punk. I’m embarrassed for you – you weren’t my first choice, or second, but over time I thought I saw some steel in that spine. Are you going to just let yourself be a laughingstock?

And of course the GOPe will be no help. It won’t stop this. Its leadership desperately wants amnesty and doesn’t want increased border security because those corporate donors have got to have their serfs. The pseudo-right component of the bipartisan cartel will be only too happy to deliver, using Democrat votes, while actual conservatives are left cut out and fuming. It’s the same sucker play George H.W. Bush fell for when he went back on his “Read my lips” pledge. Democrats offer a gullible Republican some magic beans and get him to split his base apart.

Read my lips, Mr. President: How you handle this mess will determine whether or not you are a one-term wonder. This is a low energy move, and if you fall for it you’ll be remembered as a fool – a single-term fool. You don’t have enough friends to alienate the ones who’ve stood by you.

We get that there was always going to be some legislative fix for DACA. If I were willing to take a cut in pay and prestige to join Congress – and I’m not – I’d vote to deport the whole bunch of them. But that’s not how most people feel. Too many Americans are too soft-hearted. We don’t have to like it, but that was always the reality and we have to deal with the situation as it is, not as we want it. As often happens in life, you have got to make the best of what you have, like we did in 2016 when we supported you.

But, for some reason, you seem intent on making this bad situation worse. It’s not like you don’t have leverage. After all, it’s the Democrats, not normal Americans, who need to import a new electorate to replace the uncooperative, racist, sexist, transphobic, and entirely too self-sufficient existing one. If the Dems aren’t willing to deal, okay…and? Oh no, a bunch of future Democrat voters who shouldn’t be here in the first place will have the sadz. How is that our problem?

So to roll over and humiliate yourself by not insisting on a real concession by the enemy is just mind-bogglingly stupid. The vague reference to “border security” is the giveaway. To the extent that it exists at all, the next Democrat is just not going to enforce these mystery reforms. Where is E-Verify? Where is the RAISE Act? And where are the changes to the proposed DACA legislation that stops excusing criminal acts by these illegal aliens and that ensures they can’t chain migrate their entire tribe in from the crappy Third World hellholes they abandoned?

Do not even get me started on some sort of “path to citizenship.”

There’s a deal to be made here, and you hold all the cards, Mr. President. Are you going to make it, or are you going to roll over? Because what we saw isn’t the art of the deal. This is the art of being suckered. (Kurt Schlichter)
