I know for a fact that you sat there, clicking away at the game controller, and you wonder to yourself: “Man, there are enough cut scenes here that I wish this FPS game would just play itself.”
God clearly loves you. For your time has arrived, gamer. The outside world has ignored you for too long. You waited for a movie to call your own. DOOM came close, but it wasn’t the whole movie.
In the year 20XX, you are Henry. You got into an accident and you have been rebuilt. We clearly have the technology. And for the very low cost of six-million dollars. Better… Stronger… Faster…
*a man comes in and whispers in Gator’s ear about using copyrighted stuff*
Er… Okay, moving on. So you are rebuilt, by your wife who loves you very so much so that she forgets to give you a voice box, for reasons. Then some warlord comes out of the wood work, wants that technology for himself, and then kidnaps your wife. Now you, the silent hero, must wage war on the streets of Moscow (!) to get her back!
This is a pretty cool idea actually. This movie will only work if the POV does not change from Henry. Even a second out away from Henry would ruin this movie.
Hardcore Henry also comes to us from Russia. I am not one for boycotts and I don’t think any of the Russian oligarchs would like to see one of them portrayed as a warlord, so I say support it!
This is also a giant “Fuck You!” to the whole SJW movement. They hate the whole Damsel In Distress Trope and will scream at the top of their lungs when they see it. All the more reason to check it out.
I like to start a feature where I take a look at the distorted views of the clinically insane. Or more commonly known to us on the right-side of the blogosphere, as the KosKids. They are the dedicated and brain-dead followers of Markos Moulitsas, and they have bought some prime real estate at the bottom of the rabbit hole. This feature will take a look at how far down they have gone. I am going to link them, but I beg you don’t click on them.
Today we take a hard look at the Loony Left Liberal Lying Liars!
This writer, ask (Side Note: I fucking hate the handles of some of these KosKids.), just pretty much reprints the BCC and Julian Assange talking points.
What is amazing is the comments. There is clearly a divide in the SJW movement on Assange. One side clearly believes in Julian Assange claim he didn’t rape anyone and another side who thinks Assange is getting away with rape. Someone is clearly lying here and we had better find out who it is. Is Sweden making up rape charges? Or is Julian Assange lying about not raping someone?
A better, more popular, conservative writer would be able to fully benefit from this than me. Let’s file this interesting fact away for later.
“This is one of those really painful questions that people raise and obviously it’s really emotional,” (Sec. Hillary Clinton) began. “I think that the kind of late term abortions that take place are because of medical necessity.”
Speaking of presidential liars, cblodg hammers Senator Bernie Sanders for claiming an endorsement he never got. This is a pretty good catch for a brain-dead newt.
But honestly, what was Bernie Sanders thinking here? When communications is as fast as it is going to get with our level of technology, did anyone stop to think that this would not be checked on and found out?
The “Worst Podcast Ever” returns! …Only to go away in five episodes. Yeah, I is sad for no one, because no one listens to this awful garbage. But today we have Amanda Prestigiacomo on to talk about feminism and how awful it is right now. First we talk about the dumb Alpha Male Feminist. Then how feminism doesn’t want to raise women, but lower the bar for them or lower the bar for men. Then we talk about the real rape culture, Islam, and why isn’t feminists don’t want to talk about that.
Kat is unfortunately feeling a bit under the weather, so she’ll hopefully be back next week!
So, what is the Hyde Amendment? It bans the use of certain federal funds, specifically Medicaid, to pay for abortion unless the pregnancy arises from incest, rape, or to save the life of the mother. Since the Hyde Amendment are just riders on other funding bills, we have to keep passing a version every time we pass a funding bill.
Liberals and progressives want to end the Hyde Amendments so they can have abortion on demand, on the taxpayers’ dime. I am sure that the Journal Of (So-Called) Medical Ethics would be on board for taxpayer funded Infanticide too:
It might be maintained that ‘even allowing for the more optimistic assessments of the potential of Down’s syndrome children, this potential cannot be said to be equal to that of a normal child’. But, in fact, people with Down’s syndrome, as well as people affected by many other severe disabilities, are often reported to be happy.
Nonetheless, to bring up such children might be an unbearable burden on the family and on society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care.
Like Ellen Carmichael said, this is the extreme position and they must be defeated at the ballot box. There is no walking back from this position. The people of America must be shown that supporting this nonsense puts blood on their hands.
We keep hearing that moderate American Muslims do indeed condemn Islamic Terrorism, or Terrorism for that matter, and we just don’t hightlight it. Fair enough, here is Rana Elmir ACLU of Michigan Deputy Director:
The context of violent passages (in the Qur’an) is more ambiguous than might be expected of a perfect book from a loving God. Most contemporary Muslims exercise a personal choice to interpret their holy book’s call to arms according to their own moral preconceptions about justifiable violence. Their apologists cater to these preferences with tenuous arguments that gloss over historical fact and generally do not stand up to scrutiny. Still, it is important to note that the problem is not bad people, but bad ideology.
Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad’s own martial legacy, along with the remarkable stress on violence found in the [Qur’an], have produced a trail of blood and tears across world history.
And lying is also a standard operating procedure for Islam:
Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to “smooth over differences.”
Taken collectively (from the Qur’an and Hadith) these verses are interpreted to mean that there are circumstances when a Muslim may be “compelled” to deceive others for a greater purpose.
So yeah, I am HIGHLY suspicious of Muslims and for good reason. They follow a “religion” that peaches violence and lying as part of their belief system. How can I trust any of them?
But unlike Rana Elmir, I will fully condemn terrorism in all forms. Anyone who visits violence on any Muslim, just because, is wrong and I want no part of it. Anyone who does Evil In God’s Name, only hurts God. However make no mistake, I will not allow a Muslim (or other Christians or Atheists or Jews or Hindus) to visit violence upon me or others.
So Rana Elmir (a modern, moderate, American Muslim) refuses to condemn terrorism for reasons. Fair enough. It is her First Amendment right to do so. I am disappointed, but then what do you expect from ACLU members and the so-called Religion Of Peace?
“Worst Podcast Ever” Loser (winning?) starts out today’s podcast starts off talking about Tribalism and how it is effecting the 2016. Then we talk about Trumpisms and wonder how The Don is defying political gravity. Kat has some good theories. I like Kat, she helps me fill up my “Reads” section!
And, just when I thought that I couldn’t be more disgusted by this story, comes this honestly chilling observation from a RedState commenter.
Now we see why they are so vehemently opposed to 20 week abortion bans: it doesn’t give the involuntary organ donor enough time to grow. Monsters.
…Which would handily explain why Planned Parenthood fights the twenty-week ban, despite the fact that it has such broadsupport, yes? We all thought that it was based on some sort of twisted principle. Turns out it’s just that you can make a decent hunk of change off of harvesting baby parts. No sense just throwing out that money with the rest of the… stuff… right, Dr. Deborah Nucatola?
Yeah, I am done. The time for debate is over. It is time we start throwing people in jail and taking money away from Plan Parenthood. The “reimbursements” and “a humanitarian undertaking” spin doesn’t even pass the smell test. Even so, “good intentions” is not a defense in breaking the law. We make human organ chop shops illegal for a reason.
I am beyond disgusted. We allowed this to happen. Turned a blind eye. I want to leave you a quote, slightly altered, that expresses how I feel at this moment:
“It is not God who kills the unborn. Not fate that slices them up or destiny that feeds them to PPFA’s coffers. It’s us. Only us.”
I am disgusted beyond words. I can’t link to any article about this story, because they all disgustingly approve of this utter nonsense.
Basically, Poland is a pro-life nation. It has abortion only in the case of rape/incest or the when the life of the mother is threaten. That seems fair to me. However Feminists and SJWs are not happy about this, because anything less than unlimited genocide of the next generation is consider wrong for some reason. So a pro-abortion group “Women On Waves” says “fuck Poland’s natural sovereignty” and is sending, from Germany, outlawed drugs into Poland using drones. I am sure Germany wouldn’t like people in Poland breaking German laws. So much for the rule-of-law in Europe.
And yet, despite overwhelming criticism, some commentators have questioned whether (Rachel) Dolezal has done anything wrong. Many have pointed to her living as a black woman as an example of something known as #transracial identity, even comparing Dolezal’s story to Caitlyn Jenner’s transition.
But let’s make one thing clear: transracial identity is not a thing.
Thing is, I agree with Zeba Blay. Transracial isn’t an identity. On the gripping hand, Blay uses “transracial” as the only term when referring to Rachel Dolezal and it is clear I need to define a few terms here. I want to note that I am not a SJW and I did my research more than she did!
Transracial – A person that is born one race, but can fit into multiple races through their actions. For example, I love the Japanese people and their culture (this is a true fact of me). I understand and get them. If I had the money, I deck out my room with some stuff from Japan. I love their movies and I am a huge anime fan, strictly subtitle guy (even if I can’t fully understand Japanese yet). If I had the time to learn their language fully, I could move to Japan for a visit and fit right in (maybe). I am not deluded enough to think I am actually Japanese.
Transethnic – A person who feels that they should be from a different ethnicity. This is, for example, Rachel Dolezal. Something has happen and Rachel thinks she is black. As Zeba Blay rightly pointed out later on, it was a fantasy taken to unhealthy levels.
Just as something has happen to Bruce Jenner to think he is now Caitlyn Jenner.
The idea that Dolezal’s choice to publicly identify as a black woman — one who occupied positions of power in spaces specifically designated for members of a marginalized group — is the same as being a trans woman, simply doesn’t add up.
How? Aren’t white women just as much a “marginalized group” according to SJW Logic as black women or black people in general?
What Dolezal did is culturally appropriative,…
Fuck me. “Cultural Appropriation” is such a retarded thing. Other people have been able to more effectively debunk cultural appropriation myth, that I am just going to just embed this great video:
…and suggesting otherwise disrupts actual discussions about transgender identity and issues.
I agree with Zeba Blay. If you reject Transethnic, you must also reject Transgender. That is why Blay tries desperately tries to uncouple them by describing how one is right and one is wrong, but jumps through all kinds of hoops to do so. I would also like to point out that Blay only tries to debunk Transethnic and not defend Transgender in any meaningful way. Let’s start, shall we.
As Darnell L. Moore of Mic eloquently put it, “In attempting to pass as black, Dolezal falsely represented her identity. Trans people don’t lie about their gender identities – they express their gender according to categories that reflect who they are.”
Racial divisions may ultimately be a construct, Moore notes, but “skin color is hereditary.” And it’s skin color that primarily determines racial privilege, and the way others in the world interact with your racial identity.
Right, and gender is not hereditary? They have yet to find the Transgender chromosome yet. I breathlessly wait the day that Transgender woman gets pregnant. For fun let’s substitute “sex” for “skin color” and “gender” with “racial” in that last line and see if it makes sense.
“And it’s sex that primarily determines gender privilege, and the way others in the world interact with your gender identity.”
Ops. It does.
[Transethnic] identity is a concept that allows white people to indulge in blackness as a commodity, without having to actually engage with every facet of what being black entails — discrimination, marginalization, oppression, and so on.
However doesn’t Transgender allow men and women to indulge in gender as a commodity? Bruce Jenner has always been a guy. If you believe in “white male privilege”, then he has never been discriminate, marginalized, or oppressed when Jenner was a man.
Now I anyone should be able to hold a reasonable opinion on anything. SJW Logic says your opinion is only right, if you hold the right opinion. Your right opinion holds more water if you are a part of the “marginalized” class. I am just pointing out how dumb this argument is right now.
It plays into racial stereotypes, and perpetuates the false idea that it is possible to “feel” a race.
Just like it is possible to “feel” a gender? See my point?
As a white woman, Dolezal retains her privilege; she can take out the box braids and strip off the self-tanner and navigate the world without the stigma tied to actually being black. Her connection to racial oppression is something she has complete control over, a costume she can put on — and take off — as she pleases.
Caitlyn Jenner can also figure out that being a woman is not all it is crack up to be, and can return to being Bruce Jenner with as much effort as it took to become Caitlyn.
Dolezal’s delusion and commitment to living as a black woman is profound. And it’s inherently wrong. The implications of a white woman, donning blackness and then using that blackness in order to navigate black spaces is offensive.
Bruce Jenner, donning womanhood and then could use that womanhood in order to navigate woman spaces too.
And comparing her life to Caitlyn Jenner’s is an insult to Jenner’s personal struggle. “I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live,” she told Vanity Fair.
Right. Hey, you plan on watching “I Am Cati” when it comes out July 26?
Dolezal is not trying to survive. She’s merely indulging in the fantasy of being “other.”
So is Bruce Jenner’s fantasy of being a woman. As we have established, both gender and ethnicity is hereditary. You cannot “mentally will” yourself new genetics. Transgender, Transablism, and now Transethnic are all fantasies/obsessions taken to mentally unhealthy levels. The World Health Organization classifies Transgender as a mental disorder, because of that underlying fantasy/obsession.
Anorexia Nervosa is mental disorder too, because there is an unhealthy mental fantasy/obsession about being skinny. I don’t see people rushing to make anorexia acceptable (yet… I hope…).
I am not trying to marginalize anyone here. On the contrary, these people are crying out for help and letting them indulge in unhealthy mental fantasy/obsession is not helpful. Shaming or locking people up is not the answer. We need to develop respectful mental health treatments for Transgender, Transablism, and Transethnic people before this gets out of control. I just hope it is not too late.
Hot damn! I guess we are all African-Americans now! The wounds of bigotry have started to heal and end of racism begins today, God be praised:
(Rachel) Dolezal, 37, avoided answering questions directly about her race and ethnicity Thursday, saying, “I feel like I owe my executive committee a conversation” before engaging in a broader discussion with the community about what she described as a “multilayered” issue.
“That question is not as easy as it seems,” she said after being contacted at Eastern Washington University, where she’s a part-time professor in the Africana Studies Program. “There’s a lot of complexities… and I don’t know that everyone would understand that.”
Later, in an apparent reference to the origins of human life in Africa, Dolezal added: “We’re all from the African continent.”
But all joking aside, this is awful. Anyone who has been following the Trans-Whatever Identity movements, have been waiting with baited breathe for the Transethnic shoe to drop. And here it is!
What’s the difference between this and people claiming different gender identities than their DNA demonstrates? Not one thing. Either one embraces both Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal, rejects them both, or sets up a cognitive dissonance that will become truly epic between identity groups.
When he cut off his right arm with a “very sharp power tool,” a man who now calls himself One Hand Jason let everyone believe it was an accident.
But he had for months tried different means of cutting and crushing the limb that never quite felt like his own, training himself on first aid so he wouldn’t bleed to death, even practicing on animal parts sourced from a butcher.
“My goal was to get the job done with no hope of reconstruction or re-attachment, and I wanted some method that I could actually bring myself to do,” he told the body modification website ModBlog.
…His goal was to become disabled.
Unbelievable. They want to feel special by mutilating themselves. This is a mental illness and instead of wanting to treat it, we just want to accept them for who they are. I am beginning to suspect that people with anorexia nervosa have been given a raw deal since anorexia was discovered long before this “enlighten” fucking age of complete acceptance.
All joking from the top aside, I think it is now time to finally toss this dumb “African-American” nonsense out. It is dumb, illogical, and political correct bullshit. First of all, you don’t call white people European-American. I actually find it insulting if someone called me that. I am white. I am not proud or ashamed of being white, because that is how I was born. It describes me, it doesn’t define me.
Second, the term loses all meaning outside America. Where does the line end or begin? Do you call black people in Africa, African-Americans too? Or the black woman or man in the UK? Canada? Jamaica?
Third, what about the white people in South Africa? What do we call them? Charlize Theron is from South American, is she an African-American too?
Fourth and most importantly, African-American is just not a descriptive term for all the reasons listed above.
This “Whatever-American” thing has finally run its course. Time to end the nonsense.
