Cultural Appropriation and What Women Desire in Men

The latest so-called "scandal" will play out just like the others.

1. Initial reports surface.

2. Several days of highpitched, full-throated screeching in an effort to set the narrative.

3. Unable to keep up either the tempo or the volume indefinitely, cooler heads begin to examine the allegations.

4. Actual facts begin to emerge.

5. The nothing-burgerness of the entire thing soon becomes apparent.

6. Defeated Leftists burble and murmur incoherently waiting/hoping for the next thing to give their pointless lives any meaning as they toy with suicidal ideations.


There's no reason to believe this latest OMFGGAWD!!1!OUTRAGE!!!!!111! won't splutter and stall just like every other OMFGGAWD!!1!OUTRAGE!!!!!111! we've been treated to since the GOP convention last year.

How many times have we been through this since then?

Hint to the Left: Outrage fatigue will set in on the public that isn't hardcore partisan. You're only undercutting your own credibility (not that you actually have any to those of us who pay attention).

And they wonder why we reject LW celebrities

The Left has been star struck by whatever celebrities think about any given issue ever since celebrities became star struck by Bill Clinton and redoubled their adulation for Obama.

To the working class it always seemed peculiar that a bunch of pampered 1%ers were so hot and bothered by the Leftist set that constantly condemns the 1%. Were the celebrities seeking to buy indulgences for their pointless lives of excess? Were they just Establishmentarians who were trying to feather their own nests?


I think Occam's Razor says they're just elitist assholes completely lacking in any sense of self-awareness.

Who would you rather have for a neighbor?

* Redneck who works 60 hours a week at back-breaking physical labor fixing machines or building houses who relaxes with to country music and cheap beer while grilling burgers after helping you with some home repairs

* College professor who went into academia immediately upon obtaining his doctoral degree who attends all the finest plays and all the right political gatherings where they discuss why the government needs to do more

Serious question: How can an ideology claim "Progress!" as it's mantra if

they do not know where they came from, where they are going or -- and this is the most important one of all -- why they should be at a particular destination.

Christians come to me and say, "You should follow us. You have a soul of infinite, eternal value and you as an individual were meant to realize that."

Okay. I can see the attraction of that but I don't do Sundays and I like my women on the slutty side.

But then the SJWs come to me and say, "We are making the Progress! of evolution."

And it leaves me cold because when I ask them where we came from they say we evolved and will continue to evolve.

Okay, fine, but for me that means nothing.

Evolution taking billions of years, by definition, means nothing will happen in my lifetime of any significance.

Moreover, they have no end result to strive for.

The abolition of violence and privation?

Violence is what humans use to get what they want when another party is not consenting. The only way that works is if you strip both the Taker and the Non-Consenter of their ability to act as self-motivated individuals.

And no, a post-scarcity society (something that could never exist, anyway) will not lead to the absence of violence. Sometimes what the violent person wants to take is the suffering of others. There are actually malicious people who act solely for the evil they willfully inflict upon others.



But *why* are the SJWs demanding we move to a certain point. Seeing as evolution has no *why* the entire premise has no basis. Evolution has no goal and is not capable of conceiving of or articulating its goal.

Mindless biochemical and environmental determinism.

And looking at the many illustrations of evolution I see innumerable species have been exterminate in order for me to be here.

I can only imagine hominids pattering around the plains of Africa being told that everything they do to feed their offspring, ward off predators, contend with disease, injury and the elements has no purpose except for them to be extinguished as a species so that I may sit here and contemplate their futility.

I doubt they would take comfort in that. And I certainly doubt they would sacrifice their posterity for my benefit. I'd wager, if they were given a choice the world would still be hominids and not us.

But biochemical and environmental determinism trumped whatever they wanted and if those same forces are still in play we are just as impotent as the hominids.

So...

WHY?

It's not the evolution I'm opposed to. I accept that.

It's the mythology the SJWs fabricated that comes with it I object to.

It's not a fraction as good as the mythology of the Christians.


Kek be praised.

18 years later, Leftists still torn apart by Nader

Never mind, the fact that for decades before 2000 they warmed his toilet seat for him with their tongues. They blame him for Bush 43 and that is all that matters.

Now we get treated to 737 post whine-fest as the infants savage each other because (and perhaps this is a clue as to their mentality towards Trump) they are unable to emotionally move on:

It is truly a beautiful thing to behold.

On the posting of media polls

You and the others tried so hard to demoralize us and set yourselves up for a gloat-fest.

But here we are.

We ignored your insipid prattling and we elected Trump and so far he's better than we had hoped and far better than anything we've seen before.

What part of "we don't care what you think" isn't registering with you?

You're impotent. We're winning. That's all that matters.

All your posts do is demonstrate there is no reason to think the Establishment and its stooges (read: you) will ever change. It's still the same bunch of elitist snobs that insults everything we value and demands we obey their every dictate over every facet of our lives while exempting themselves from every law including the prohibition of violence.

Well...

GFY

You can post your polls if you want but your smug (but more importantly: baseless) arrogance is obvious. You're not changing anything. You're not winning converts.

You're still losing and we're still winning.

How much does the Left love the military? This much --

I Ask You This Question. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH VETERANS? Why So Many Rabidly GOP?

Why do so many veterans support Trump, conservative. and the GOP. The Trump gang has directly said they will "FLUSH" veterans down the toilet. Privatizing VA, military pensions, health care and not raising military pay is a royal screw job. The GOP has successfully "fucked" up the VA system since Bush. VA problems are directly related to GOP sabotage. And they want to take away military pensions and put the military under 401k system.

So many veterans support these pricks and will actually threaten to kill you if you go against the GOP. The American Legion post where we have a monthly Democratic breakfast is so racist, hateful and bogoted and pro GOP its is no funny. At least that's the way it looks. I am a Democrat and I see very few veterans around in support. As the WWII vets decline I see almost no Vietnam vets on board. Other vets organizations are "neutral". What a crock.

The Legion, VFW and other veteran organizations voice "ONLY CONCERN" about GOP and Trump plans to dismantle the system. God damn they should be taking GOP and conservative prisoners.

Could veterans all have been so brainwashed by serving in the military?

------------------------

Could veterans all have been so brainwashed by serving in the military?

"organization that takes a stance against the GOP and its policies are often marginalized"

Agreed. I think it's the old "to a hammer, every problem is a nail" If you are not aligned with the military industrial complex and it's need for war (and profits from said war) you are a problem.

-------------------------

My great-nephew joined the Canadian Armed Forces

five years ago. He went in as a liberal -- social and fiscal -- and now he's both a social and fiscal conservative who also thinks Trump is the cat's meow. His parents are gobsmacked. Herd mentality, maybe. I often think it's the training -- to conform, to obey etc. But i don't know......

--------------------------

Authoritarians' Love of Authority...

for some people who were in the military, that was the only period in their lives when they felt part of some sort of male-dominated authoritarian thing. They liked that. Some became career military people, while others left the military, but continued to crave that sort of environment.

And there you have it. Some vets like being ordered around and not having to think about things. Add in their lack of critical thinking skills so they can't connect the politicians actions with their personal circumstance (some call it cognitive dissonance but I call it ignorance) and you have the recipe for blind adherence to authority figures and entities.

---------------------------

It extends further.

Consider all the poor whites in red states that consistently support the party that has a boot on their throats. It is bizarre and must be some kind of ingrained pattern. I don't get it. This is not the same GOP their grand father supported, yet the GOP ropes them in with so called Christian values. Depressing that they can't look at the overall picture and make a choice that truly benefits them.

----------------------------

The military

is a top-down, authoritarian dictatorship--similar to Republicanism. Those who are compatible with that often stay in and rise in the ranks, while the more independent-minded who are not particularly compatible often get out after one hitch or maybe two.

You've probably heard Republicans in Congress described as "marching along in lockstep." Those who "break ranks" may be punished with a well-funded primary opponent or bad committee assignments or something, similar to military punishment for not following orders.

----------------------------

Because so many of them live in rural areas.

Where the only media available is right wing talk, local news (owned by Sinclair) and Fox News. So if you only have a toxic media diet and no further education, it's pretty much garbage in, garbage out.

-----------------------------

Many Vets Are Brainwashed, They Just Do Not Realize It.

I went through training and I know what they tried to do. It never worked on me or many of the draftees I trained with. Vets deserve all the benefits they get once they have served. Far too many have been denied.

If you are supporting someone who is saying they will harm you by taking away your earned benefits and they are waving the flag while doing so, then you have to question that decision to support.

-------------------------------

Because they like war, guns, intimidation, and such. It's been that way as long as I can remember.

Of course, when I was growing up in the South, it was Dixiecrats pushing for war, promoting guns and racism, and the like. But in recent decades, they have become GOPers.

--------------------------------

Many, in the prime of their life, are submersed in a male dominated culture. nt.

--------------------------------

Most military men are blindly driven by the macho macho thing.....

Military is hyper macho.
Warmongering is macho.
Misogyny is macho.
Rape is macho.
Anti abortion is macho
Racism is macho.
White supremacy is macho.
Drug war programs are macho.
Hyper law and order and privatized prisons are macho.
Anti intellectualism is macho
Anti science is macho.
Hyper Republicanism is macho.
Fox nuz is macho with hot babes galore.
Rush Limbaugh and hyper right-wing shock jocks are macho.
Football, boxing, wrestling, and NASCAR are macho.
Hyper (hypocritical) Christian is macho.

Liberals, progressives, Democrats, Social Democrats., welfare programs, government oversight agencies, unions, non-discriminatory policy programs for the destitute poor and elderly, immigration support programs, and any other government expenditure programs - except those the feed the military industrial complex, a helping hand to fags foreigners and females and all of the above are pinko commie feminized political strategies. Real men do not under any circumstances discuss, support, subscribe, or vote for that.

And they wonder why vets aren't lining up to kiss their asses.

The Left wants to weaponize biblical scripture

We've seen it here though the worst offenders have "gone to a better place."

https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=9297910

Now, I doubt anyone would ever accuse me of being a holy roller but their (mis)application of scripture seems so obvious even to the likes of me, they would have to be truly self-deluded in the worst way to even attempt this.

So, let's review what the OP has to offer (truncated for brevity):

"The Rich Young Ruler"

Was allowed to walk away. He was not further lectured, publically ridiculed or arrested for tax evasion.


"THE WIDOW'S OFFERING"

Was brought to everyone's attention because she gave freely...not under government compulsion.



"WHEN YOU PRAY, DO IT IN SECRET"

So much for Leftist virtue signaling



"ST. PAUL'S EPISTLE ABOUT LOUDMOUTH PHONIES AND HYPOCRITES"

That would include those who weaponized scripture for political ends



"THE BEATITUDES - FROM THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT"

That would include your judgmental asses



"AND THE BIG ONE - THE "WHATEVER YOU DO TO THE LEAST OF THESE, YOU DO TO ME"

Does not require an itemized tax form

Michael "global warming hockeystick" Mann destroys his own lawsuit against his critics

Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.

The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball (above, right) is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud. Mann’s imminent defeat is set to send shock waves worldwide within the climate science community as the outcome will be both a legal and scientific vindication of U.S. President Donald Trump’s claims that climate scare stories are a “hoax.”

...

Mann’s now proven contempt of court means Ball is entitled to have the court serve upon Mann the fullest punishment. Contempt sanctions could reasonably include the judge ruling that Dr. Ball’s statement that Mann “belongs in the state pen, not Penn. State’ is a precise and true statement of fact. This is because under Canada’s unique ‘Truth Defense’, Mann is now proven to have wilfully hidden his data, so the court may rule he hid it because it is fake. As such, the court must then dismiss Mann’s entire libel suit with costs awarded to Ball and his team.
