The Debate About Sexual Attraction and Transphobia

I love how the Internet just loves to get pissed.  It really does.  The Internet loses its fucking mind every time there is some big thing that they feel they have to get upset about, because they have nothing better to do with their time.  Lately, it’s been Riley J Dennis getting her panties in a bunch because people chose to call out the video that her girlfriend made where she basically says that if you don’t date a trans person who still has the genitals of the sex they were born as, you’re a bigot.

This argument is so dumb for a lot of reasons.  I’ve already talked before in my post about the Fall of Zinnia Jones how this is simply ridiculous.  After all, you’ll like dick if you just give it a try!  What’s what?  That argument sounds just like the ones that straight people said to gay girls?  I know my friend Quinn heard that same argument from the Priest in the church she grew up in when she was younger.  But now we have the regressive left literally taking that EXACT SAME argument and waving it with the banner of it being a good thing.  That just blows my fucking mind.  They’re so desperate to be seen as tolerant that they take the rhetoric of intolerant people and use it as a way of proving how not-intolerant they are.  There’s so much delicious irony.

I am one of the people who says that Riley’s girlfriend was basically making the argument that sexual “preferences” is a choice.  Because you can choose to magically like dick, if you are a girl and don’t.  Just like I can magically choose to like dick on a girl.  Right?  See, here’s something that all these SJW retards don’t want to realize when they make the argument “the last thing I think about is genitals.”  Really?  Then you’ve never have sex.  See, sex is about sexual contact.  To all the SJW guys, here’s a question – you have a girlfriend?  If you get one, and you’re in bed with her, would you wanna suck her cock?  Would you want her fucking you up the ass with it?  Because if she has one, then that’s how sexual contact will go.  You will be fucking her penis.  I wonder if that’s how Steve Shives gets it on.  Maybe he is living proof that you can grow to like it long enough if you take it.

Everyone I see on Twitter and other sites arguing this crap seems to want to totally ignore the fact that if you are making the argument that what you like to feel, sexually, can be changed.  So ladies, you like getting fuck by a big cock?  Great.  These people are telling you that you can not like that, if you just give it a chance.  Do you see how stupid that is?!

It baffles me how we’ve come to this.  Everyone on the far-left is so desperate to not be called a bigot that we’re going to pretend that what you are sexually into can just be fundamentally changed if you just give it enough of a chance.  All the straight guys are gonna magically want to suck cock and all the straight girls are going to want to touch vaginas.  An argument for which there is NO evidence of ANY kind that it is true.  After all, you’re born wanting what you want.  The same argument that the gay community uses equally applies here.

We live in an age where, in order to be seen as “progressive,” there is a fucking purity test.  This bothers me.  This social justice mentality has infected everything.  A lot of people are saying that going after SJWs is tired, but then we see this stupid crap, and I realize that it’s not.  It’s as big now as it has ever been.  And these people don’t see how they’re doing real damage to their own movement.  Because now, instead of wanting to be allies, they’re made to feel guilty about their “preferences.”  Yeah, because what you like to have when you are at the most intimate moments of your life is just something you can choose.  Imbeciles.

I get where all of this is coming from.  For real, I do.  I maintain that I get why Riley said this crap.  It’s because she didn’t want people to be rejected.  Rejection hurts.  But here’s the thing that Riley and all the people who think like her don’t seem to want to accept – rejection is part of life.  Trust me, I’ve gotten a ton of it.  I know what it’s like.  You gotta accept that not everyone is going to be attracted to you.  Some people who see that giant honking Adam’s Apple are going to be put off.  Some people who see that painfully-average penis are going to be put off.  That’s not bigotry.  It’s because they know what they want to have sexual contact with, and that isn’t it.  Hey Riley, would you suck your girlfriend’s cock if she had one?  Would you let her peg you with it?  If that thought provides even a moment’s hesitation for you, then maybe you fucking get it.  And maybe you can see that this isn’t bigotry.  It’s just someone wanting something else in the bedroom than you.  I’m sorry if you or your friends have been hurt before because someone didn’t want you.  But we all have to deal with that.  Saying that a lesbian is a bigot because she doesn’t want a penis inside her is just as disgusting as the aforementioned Priest saying Quinn should just give dick a try and it would grow on her.

I genuinely can’t see the difference between those points of view.

People Cheering John McCain’s Cancer Make Me Sick

I’m a liberal.  That’s something you have to clarify now, because the hard-left has a purity test for this shit.  Because if you don’t hate the person they hate as much as they hate them, you’re secretly a conservative.  If you have opinions that they don’t like, you’re right-wing (ask Dusty Smith about that).  If any of your politics don’t align with their sensibilities, you are a traitor to your fellow liberals, no matter how left-leaning your positions are.  Just ask Laci Green how that’s going.  She decided to give those opposed to her side a voice and let them speak and now she is the SJW equivalent of a race-traitor, even though she still harbors a lot of values that are in line with a lot of theirs.  But she is open to conversation, so I can at least disagree with her and it’s okay.  If she was here, I would have some lively debates with her about the nature of gender and how everyone’s belief in thousands of them is something I find ridiculous.

The reason I brought that up is because I’m on Twitter today and I’m seeing a lot of shit.  Like how Chester Bennington committed suicide.  A fact for which I am incredibly saddened.  I may not be a fan of their later stuff, but when I was young Linkin Park got me into punk rock.  My friend Quinn hit me up after the news dropped and said it hurt her personally because she had a very strong punk identity growing up.  We used to listen to Linkin Park’s CD’s, back when those were still a thing.  To this day she tries to still keep the punk rock love close to her heart.  The punk rock lesbian, and she calls herself.  We had a long conversation about growing up listening to that music.  It was saddening.

I also learned that John McCain recently found out that he has cancer.  It’s very serious.  Having just gotten through an episode where I could have potentially had skin cancer, stuff like this strikes very close to my heart.  I also got to see my grandfather die of it.  Then there was Quinn’s mom, who was the most important person in the world to her.  When her father cast her out when she came out, it was her mom that stood by her.  Destroyed the family, but she was loyal to her daughter.  Lost the relationship with the older daughter for that as well.  Since she couldn’t put the smokes down, lung cancer took her as well.  It was an episode that I got to help Quinn through when she was broken so hard.

But here’s the thing – I don’t agree with John McCain on pretty much anything.  I can say that at least he wasn’t a hypocrite about valuing family.  He was strongly against the LGBT community, but when his daughter comes out as gay, he is suddenly very quiet on that.  So props there.  He put his money where his mouth is.

With the announcement of him having a serious condition that could potentially be fatal, I see shit like this.-

Or this –

To the people who are cheering at the thought of a man dying of cancer, has any one of you detestable pieces of shit lost someone to cancer?  Have you seen what it does to a person?  I honestly question if any of these loathsome shit-biscuits have any sense of empathy at all.  Yes, because what side of the political debate I’m on should mean that I want to see this man die a very painful death?!  Is that really how these animals think?!  That’s what you are if you think this way – an animal!  You’re lower than the lowest form of scum.

Is this the new left?  Stuff like this is why I have to qualify me being a liberal.  Because I do NOT stand with these people.  I do NOT consider them my friends, my allies, my comrades in arms.  I want NOTHING to do with anyone who thinks this way.  I think the liberals need to kick these fuckers to the curb to let them rot away like the gangrenous growth that they are!  Post haste!

I am a liberal, and now it comes with a caveat that I am not one of these liberals.  I am not part of the regressive, authoritarian left.  I am part of the libertarian left, and damn proud of it.  If these worthless pricks shown above could please be forced to watch someone that they care about have to suffer with cancer, maybe then those little empathy muscles would go off and they could remember what being a decent fucking person is like.  Oh, who am I kidding?  If these people were capable of empathy they wouldn’t have reveled in someone dying in the first place.

Let’s Respond to Indicators That You Might be a Liberal (From Hunter and Friends)

Hey everybody.  It seems that BuzzFeed’s retarded questions have led people to making videos in the same vein to get their own political agenda across.  Now we have a conservative named Hunter Avalone who has gotten together with his friends to make a video much in the vein of BuzzFeed and Jeff Foxworthy listing a series of qualities that may indicate that you are a liberal.  Here’s a link to the video, now let’s see if I fall into these categories.

If you’re upset there was no trigger warning at the beginning of this video

I wasn’t.

If you think burning the gay flag is a hate crime but burning the American flag is just fine

I think both are just fine.  They are pieces of cloth.  If people want to treat them like they are some kind of holy relic, that is their own dumbass decision to make.

You might be a liberal if your solution to everything is getting naked

Are you saying that getting naked can’t solve all problems?

You might be a liberal if a Muslim bakery baking a gay wedding cake doesn’t bother you at all, but the moment a Christian bakery does the same thing, you have a brain aneurysm

If both are privately owned businesses, I believe they have the right to refuse service to whoever they want.  As for me, I don’t care whose money it is, I’ll take it.  As do most businesses in this country.  If somebody wants to be a bigoted asshole, that’s on them.

You might be a liberal if you mistake a construction marker for a swastika

The video shows a news article.  It may also be that they are part of a reactionary media whose entire business runs on clicks so you make click-bait-y things that lack nuance.  Just saying, that may also be a possibility.

You might be a liberal if you think there are more than two genders.

No, you might be an SJW.  I am a liberal and I disagree with that belief.

If you think CNN is a credible news source

Just as credible as Fox News

If you think all white people are racist, but we’re also all muslim

Yeah, Michael Moore holding up that sign does look pretty silly.  I happen to disagree with both of those assessments, but I am still a liberal.  You all’s examples need work.

If you aren’t racist but you think black people are too stupid to get a voter ID

So you want to have voter ID laws unilaterally applied?  As in equally across all demographics?  Because given some history in this country with how voter ID laws have been abused, I’m just wondering if you also support profiling.  I mean, you did use black people as your example.

If fact is your least favorite F word

I am dying to know when Fox News has had fact as their F word.  Mine is “fuck.”  As in – fuck conservative ideas that the facts always are on their side.

If you think men should stop telling women what to do with their bodies, but you think women should be able to tell men what to do with their bodies

I don’t think anyone should tell anyone what to do with their bodies, so long as they aren’t hurting anyone.

You might be a liberal if you think women should be allowed to walk around topless and free the nipple!

I like boobs, so yeah, let’s do it!  They just lose the right for me not to gawk if they are out in public with their tits hanging out.

But you also think the hijab is empowerment and not oppressive at all

I do think it’s oppressive.  The religion of Islam is misogynistic as fuck, and I am baffled at how the SJWs can defend it.

If you label everyone you don’t like as a fascist without even knowing what a fascist really is

Yeah, the calling of people Nazis just because they don’t agree with you is pretty stupid.  You all got on Glenn Beck when he did that indiscriminately too, right?

If “Faggot!” triggered you

Given what a little bitch you look like, you calling anyone a faggot is very strange.

If you think all white men are white supremacists and Nazis

Already talked about this.

If you think black people can’t be racist

They most assuredly can.  As can any other ethnic group.

If you go to give a speech on global warming riding in your private jet

Yeah, that does seem a touch bit hypocritical.

If someone criticizing violence done in the name of Islam offends you more than the violence itself

I am a liberal and I agree that people’s attitudes with this whole “islamophobia” stuff is beyond retarded.

If you need a safe space

I don’t

If climate change is directly linked to the growth of terrorism

It kinda is.  As the world heats up and more and more ethnic groups are being forced together, terrorism is going to increase.

If you think women are paid less than men for the exact same work

I don’t think that way.  When you correct for variables other than the average earnings of men and women, the wage gap all but vanishes.  What is left might very well be actual discrimination, and I do believe it should be stopped, but it isn’t this .77 cents on the dollar myth.

If you were offended by this video

I wasn’t.  It was stupid.

So, what do you think?  Am I a liberal?  Oh, wait, I said I am.  Well, shit.  You got me, Hunter.

The Left and Right Have No Nuance Left

I am honestly so tired of watching modern political discourse.  Watching the news just tires me anymore.  All I see on my feeds anymore is my liberal and conservatives friends posting links to obvious click-bait that is beyond predictable.  The snowflakes on the left and the right screaming about their pet issues.  No joke, it’s exhausting.  I find myself getting tired of listening to the same arguments day in and day out.  Where is the nuance?  Where is the critical examination of issues on more than a “Trump is evil and his supporters are Nazis!” level?  Where is the examination beyond, “the left is trying to take away our rights to free speech!”  As I said, it’s exhausting.  Makes one not want to even talk about politics anymore.

The older I get, the more I realize that my generation is out of its goddamn mind.  I have ZERO love for Hillary and the DNC.  Their corruption was laid bare.  Whatever Russia had in mind with why they did it, Hillary made an ironic burn on herself when she said that Putin shouldn’t have been mad that she exposed that he rigged an election, but instead should be mad that he did it.  Her lack of self-awareness is amazing.  After all, NOWHERE in all the coverage of how Russia was behind it do they claim the info that proved she rigged the election against Bernie Sanders does she claim the info leaked is inaccurate.  Hey, Hillary, maybe instead of lecturing Putin on a pulpit, you can take some fucking responsibility for the horrible shill that you are?!  Maybe have the self-awareness to realize how hypocritical it is for you to call out ANYONE for corruption when there are thousands of leaked documents showing how corrupt you and your entire party I.

Meanwhile, I have ZERO love for Trump.  This dude is fucking bonkers.  No joke, he is totally nuts.  He can’t even keep his own party lines going.  Every time his cabinet says one thing, he goes on the news and says another.  His Twitter account makes me think of a clown smacking its head into a wall and asking us to laugh along with him.  His appointees are a joke, worst being his attorney general who wants to come after people who smoke pot.  Everyone was all like, “give Trump a chance!”  Fine.  I gave him one.  Now he can go fuck himself.  This guy’s administration is a joke.  I feel like I am watching America’s version of the fall of the Roman Empire.  You ever read some of the stuff about what my old teacher call the “Clown Town Emperors?”  There were some real loon in that lot.

But you know what bugs me more than all of that?  The real problem I have is that instead of us talking about these issues in a critical way, all it devolves to is people using buzzwords to attack the others.  It’s gotten to the point where I wonder if genuine political discourse is actually possible.  And we need genuine discourse.  We need to talk about the fact that the Democratic party is too corrupt to be sustainable.  Sure, if it’s Trump vs Hillary (she is already claiming to be starting a new PAC to run), she’s pretty much got it already.  Anyone who is watching what is happening can see that.  When you have conservatives going on Fox News and saying that Trump is an idiot, then you know you are done.  But why is it that I suddenly magically have to support that crooked harpy just because Trump is an idiot?  Do people not realize that I can be against both?

I can hear you argue – “Well then, Lucien, who do you want to see as President?”  I’m glad you asked.  If I could, I would LOVE to see Tulsi Gabbard make a run.  She has appeal to both conservatives and liberals.  She has a lot of Sanders talking points, which there were plenty of conservatives and libertarians who said they would support.  Not to mention she has years of military service which is another huge appeal to conservatives.  She’s the perfect candidate.  None of the political baggage that Hillary has, with talking points that voters were shown to actually support.  While assholes like Bill Maher claim that I didn’t vote for Hillary because she is a woman (I am one of the people who wrote in Harambe.  No joke, I actually did it), there is a woman who I would note on vote for, I would campaign for.  Or if Elizabeth Warren made a run.  Sure, she kissed Hillary’s ring, but she still does have genuine principals that I can get behind.  Either of those women would have my full support.  Glass ceiling that, Shillary. *rude hand gesture*

The Republican Party has now been pushed to the point that they can’t even begin to salvage their reputation.  Assuming all this stuff with Trump under investigation leads to impeachment, then who are they going to run next?  Ted Cruz, maybe?  If the other candidates had gotten out of the primary earlier, I am convinced that he would be the President now instead of Trump.  Part of me wonders if the left would still be using retarded hashtags like #NotMyPresident if that was the case, because these idiots don’t seem to know what democracy is or how it works.  Yes he is.  And he didn’t have to be.  If the other candidate wasn’t a corrupt bitch, we could have had someone with principals.  I know, crazy thought.

Throughout all of this, I try and look at both sides and really come to an objective side where I can actually examine the issue with some form of nuance.  I hate both sides of the political debate in this country.  Neither has the high ground.  It’s like watching hogs do battle in the mud.  Who is the better group?  I don’t know, because they are both covered in shit.  And I am almost to the point where I am tuning out and just enjoying movies and video games, because what is there left to talk about?  Please, I am all fucking ears.

UC Berkeley, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Insanity

When I think of liberals, I think of the fight against the Red Scare.  I think of how people on the left came together to fight against a government who was all about fear, deception, and manipulating to convince the public that if you weren’t with them, you were against them.  I think of thousands of people who came together to champion the rights of free speech and for unpopular opinions to be said.  That’s the left that I think of.  However, that is not the left that I see now.

For those who didn’t know, Milo Yiannopoulos was invited to speak at UC Berkeley.  He didn’t ask to go there, but rather was invited.  A person there to speak his mind.  Now, because Milo is very openly conservative, and has a lot of far-right positions, it’s natural that there would be people who would disagree with him.  Indeed, many of them gathered at this event.  So, what did these people do?  Did they come with well-reasoned arguments and try and have an open discussion with Milo?  Did they allow him to speak and then have their rebuttal?  No.  That isn’t what happened.  What happened?  Well, take a look for yourself.

Listen to all those champions of free speech!  Listen to the chant “Shut it down!” over and over again!  Can’t you just tell how much they value the traits that the left is supposed to stand for?  Because, after all, in today’s society, Milo’s views are unpopular.  The popular consensus is much more left-leaning.  With that in mind, you’d think that, even if they didn’t agree with him, my fellow left-leaning people would at least want to hear the guy out.  That way we could form educated opinions on his views and then disagree with them in the most effective way – with good argumentation.

Fuck that noise!  We gotta riot!  Let’s destroy property! Let’s assault people!  There was footage of some asshole tear-gassing a girl with a MAGA hat who was just minding her own business.  One guy was beaten and stripped.  There was even a story of someone who was shot when someone acted in self-defense after the mob went after him.  Yup.  That’s the progressive-left, everyone.  That’s what it’s come to.  But hey, maybe you think that that is hyperbole.  After all, it’s not like celebrities are in on it or anything.  Oh wait, here’s a link to a Tweet by Sarah Silverman, who lays it out that the military will eventually be coming in to help the left with an armed revolution.  Hey Sarah, they call that treason, you know.  Good thing that the Internet never forgets, because now Sarah is going to have this little nugget following her around forever.

Never in my life have I been more ashamed of the left in this country.  We once made fun of the Tea Party and what a bunch of assholes they were.  But you know what, as bad as their demonstrations were, I gotta say, even I am starting to agree with the conservatives who say that the left is worse.  At least it didn’t come to guns and lighting garbage fires in the street.  I remember saying that I wished America was more like other countries, who indulge in a good riot every now and then.  Well, I got my wish.  And it makes us look so pathetic.

Do the people like Sarah the retard Silverman not understand how absolutely horrific it would be to have armed revolution?  Do they not realize what that would do to this country.  Trump won, people!  Fair and square!  It’s all your fault.  You made this monster.  All the endless yelling about sexism and racism and all this other bullshit.  Organizations who chant for dead cops, and then get their wish.  You bear the blame here.  Trump won on the backs of the people who are sick and tired of all the PC bullshit.  Now we have a protest that had no illusions about being anything other than a riot, all to shut down someone that they don’t like.

The irony is that this will have the exact opposite effect.  See, Milo really wasn’t a name in the mainstream.  He is huge on the Internet, but he isn’t a name that the public at large knows.  Now they do.  Now they know exactly who he is.  This riot has caught national attention.  CNN was being just as hard on these idiots protesting as Fox News.  That’s understandable.  Any media outlet has to see this for the bat-shit crazy mess that it is.  Milo’s name will just get bigger and bigger, while the people screaming in the streets, or taking to Twitter to call for violent uprising will be made to look like raving lunatics.  Congratulations.

We can’t do like this, people.  We just fucking can’t.  Political discourse in this country cannot devolve into crowds screaming and burning shit in the street.  If that’s where we’ve gone, then we might as well just go back to the Coliseum and have people settle their differences with swords.  Then the mob could gamble on it and our descent as a nation into madness will be complete.  Worse still, we have people defending this bullshit!  Are you fucking kidding me?!  This behavior is indefensible.  But hey, it’s easy to defend when it isn’t these PC assholes who will be out in the street fighting the cops.  It won’t be them in this “revolution.”  They’ll be at Starbucks.  Fuck these people.

You Are Such a Spoiled Brat (A response to Zinnia Jones)

Oh look, another YouTuber who I used to respect, a long ass time ago.  It’s so strange to me, sometimes, to see how the landscape of the Internet has changed from when I started following this side of the ideological fence.  I remember in the early days, when Zinnia was a smarmy YouTuber with a good head on her shoulders and a sarcastic side that was fun.  Even featured some of her videos on my page when I was making a point.  But those days are LONG gone.  I haven’t watched one of her videos in years, and I wouldn’t have known about this if another YouTuber I follow hadn’t shared this lovely nugget of retardedness today.  It seems that in the years since I stopped following her, ZJ went more down the SJW rabbit hole, to the point that she has made a very public statement about how she feels about Trump, in probably the most juvenile video I have seen since the woman who was screaming that after Trump got elected, she needed an ambulance because she was going to kill herself.  Guess she didn’t need that ambulance before uploading the video to YouTube.  Funny how that works.  See the temper tantrum for yourself, then we’ll talk about it.

I swear, I have seen children screaming in department stores who I didn’t think are as a big a fucking brat as you are, Zinnia.  That’s what this was.  This was the “grown-up” equivalent of a child screaming because she didn’t get her way.

Let’s start with all the accusations.  You accuse Trump of being a racist, a misogynist, and hating the LGBT community.  That’s funny, but I didn’t see a SINGLE citation to any of that.  Not one.  At least with the misogynist one, you have a go-to line.  That’s one where I can see that you have something to back it up.  But when has Trump said that he hates an ethnic group?  Hell, despite how poorly he did, I saw him trying to reach out to the black community.  If only he had known that Hillary had that locked down.  The go-to line here is that he wants to get rid of all the immigrants.  Not a position I agree with, but it doesn’t mean that he hates all Mexicans.  And fuck, his whole thing about a wall is so paper-thin that he has even said that it would be a fence in places.  In other words, he is back-pedaling on that as fast as he can, because he realizes that it’s all just political theater anyway.

Oh, and the rapist deal.  Do we have definitive proof that he has raped anyone?  I would think the courts would like to see that.  There was a woman who was planning on taking him to civil court for sexual assault, but that mysteriously vanished the moment that he actually won.  Funny how that works.  I did hear something about child rape, but until I see something more concrete than an accusation and the media’s character assassination, I’m not taking that without a big-ass grain of salt.

But the real thing is just what a petulant child she looks like throughout this entire video.  This was nothing but yelling.  Yelling and crying that the person she wanted didn’t win.  Trump doesn’t know anything!  He’s a doo-doo head!  That’s how mature this looked, Zinnia!  I have said before that I have no respect for the right when they claim that they would NEVER do what the left is doing now.  There are plenty of pics from back in 2008 when they did just that.  However, I have even less respect for your ilk.  You are living proof that even a trans person can be a complete piece of shit, ZJ.

For many minutes, you go on and on about how Trump didn’t deserve to win, how he is just super stupid and should have lost the election because you don’t like it.  But you then go into being a disgusting pile of trash when you say that what you need to do, instead of working to unite the country and taking the rational approach to trying to affect policy, you say that we need to make Trump’s life as President as miserable as possible.  All that liberal talk of tolerance and trying to see other’s points of view?  Fuck that!  Maybe to show those that we vehemently disagree with that we can take a mature position and extend and olive branch.  Maybe we can show the conservatives who are being butthurt little bitches about the Hamiltons how reasonable discourse can work.  Fuck that!  Let’s do everything in our power to fuck with the President-Elect!  Let’s make his life in the White House miserable!  Let’s be childish pricks to this person who has yet to do one fucking thing as President of the United States!

In a way, I do like that ZJ has made this video.  I like that we get to see a transgender person be a fucking prick right now to someone who has not shown any inkling of deserving it.  Let’s throw out buzzwords to validate why we hate him and close our ears to anything that might disagree.  That’s the adult way to handle this!  That’s the tolerant way to go about disagreeing with someone!  Proof that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Part of me wants to be open to giving Trump a chance, but he isn’t making it easy.  All his talks about “draining the swamp,” and his entire administration is shaping up to be led by lobbyists and establishment politicians.  I can already tell that it will only be a matter of time before I join the chorus making fun of the guy.  This latest bit with the Hamiltons isn’t helping.  But then I see people like Zinnia, spoiled brats who clearly haven’t faced any legitimate hardships in their entire fucking lives, making it sound like she is going to fuck up Trump’s day purely out of spite, every day for her entire life, and trying to get other spoiled brats to join her.  It’s unreal.  Fuck you, ZJ.  You are immature in the worst way, and I remembered why I stopped watching you.  If you are meant to be the fact of social justice, then you and your stupid tattoo can fuck right off.

The Democratic Tea Party (needs to happen)

I have followed the retarded protests that have been happening to President-Elect Donald Trump with more than a little cringe.  Kind of hard to argue that this is more than a little pathetic.  All the people who said that Trump needed to accept losing are screaming, rioting, and even making a petition that has millions of signatures for the Electoral College to put Hillary in the White House, all while Trump has started some genuinely good ideas, like rolling back the proxy war with Russia in Syria.  No joke, the whole deal with Russia and Hillary’s saber-rattling with them to cover her ass with WikiLeaks scared the fuck out of me.  If nothing else, I’m glad that we have a candidate who wants to ease the tension.

But I am now looking at what is happening to the Democrats and I can’t help but think that this could be a VERY good thing.  The reality is that this election wasn’t Trump sweeping the nation.  He got a vote amount in the same range as typical Republican candidates.  The thing that got him victory was the fact that Hillary got so much fewer votes than she was expecting.  And there’s a reason for this.  Because she is this election’s version of Mitt Romney.  In 2012, the Republican polling numbers were abysmal.  Same this time.  And despite all the claims that it was about Hillary having a vagina, the reality is that both candidates were despised for the same reason – they are unrepentant corporate tools who have no charisma.  It’s too easy to hate what they represented.

“So, what does this have to do with the protests and riots?” you ask.  Let’s take a trip down memory lane to 2008.  After the sweeping success of Barack Obama, a candidate who inspired people and had lots of charisma to match, there was something of a civil war within the Republican party.  It was called the Tea Party.  I can already hear some of you groaning.  Yeah, the Tea Party had some of the cringiest things you can imagine, along with pundits who became easy fodder for comedians.  However, let’s look at the effect they had on the party.  In no uncertain terms, the Tea Party gutted the Republican party from within.  They destroyed so many of the old guard Republican candidates in primaries and while it was a difficult transition, the result has been a conservative counter-culture that is now maligned as the “alt-right.”  It led to some very charismatic Republican candidates.  I don’t agree with these people, but I can’t deny their charisma.  Part of me would have loved to see a debate between Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton.  Unlike Trump, Cruz was eloquent and has a sharp tongue.  Trump almost never got into all the WikiLeaks stuff and the corruption, but I guarantee you that Cruz would have broken her back with it, over and over again.  It’s honestly for the best that we got a centrist in hardcore conservative clothing to win the election.

The point of all of this is that I genuinely believe that it’s time for the Democrats to have their own version of the Tea Party.  It’s time for us to start an internal political revolution to gut this party of the corporate tools who have infested it and bring what was supposed to be the left’s answer to the right back into the left where it belongs.  The Democratic Party has become so twisted by moneyed interest that they are now right of center.  That needs to stop.  All these people protesting need to come together and begin our own version of the Tea Party, because if they don’t, then you can guarantee that 2020 will go to Trump again.  We need to mix things up, and it needs to happen right fucking now.

We need to get rid of these establishment Democrats.  As many as we can.  Let’s get some candidates in there who are fresh faces with bright ideas.  We need candidates who can promote things in the vein of Bernie Sanders.  His message resonated with people, and for good reason.  Instead of propping up the same broken candidates who nobody likes, let’s get some fresh blood in.

For example, there is a woman that I would actually like to see as the first female President.  Not Elizabeth Warren.  Fuck that pathetic sellout.  She sold her soul to the devil, and for what?  Nothing.  Hey, Sanders did that too.  Funny how that works.  Another reason the party needs to be changed.  If the only thing they can do (since they can’t inspire confidence and get booed at their own acceptance ceremony) is threaten and blackmail people in the party to play ball, then these people aren’t worth anything.  The woman that I am genuinely hoping I get to see making a run for the Oval Office is Tulsi Gabbard.  Back in the primaries, I was hoping that Sanders would be picking her as VP, grooming her the Presidency after him.  She’s got a fantastic track record, military service, and doesn’t have ANY of the baggage the bulk of the party does.  All these idiots can say that the reason I didn’t want Hillary in there is because she’s a woman.  Let me shit on that idea by promoting a woman who would be utterly fantastic at the job.

There is a golden opportunity to reform the party with candidates who aren’t barely left or just right of center, and I say that NOW is the time to take it.  Strike while the iron’s hot.  Let’s get some fresh blood who are genuinely progressive, but NOT in the modern terms.  This ties into something else that needs to happen – the SJWs have got to go!  While we are busy arguing about pronouns, the liberals who aren’t part of all this drama are rolling their eyes.  Party loyalty is dying while we have these same stupid debates about gender and BLM and pronouns.  Nobody cares about the person who identifies themselves as an Apache Helicopter and has the pronouns phe/per/pheper.  The SJW mentality was, quite correctly, rejected in this election.  People didn’t care about the crybullies and their talking points.  People see that for the stupid bullshit that it is, and if this party is to have ANY legitimacy in the future, this group and their tearful bullshit have to go back to whatever corner of Tumblr or Twitter from whence they came.  While they are complaining about someone who was identified the wrong way, we could be fighting for ACTUAL universal healthcare or environmental regulation that does real good.  Maybe throw some money to research for cures for diseases now that our over-prescribing of medications is breeding superbugs.  The social justice crowd needs to be cast out of our current political discourse if there will ever be any real progress made towards the things that truly matter.  But hey, maybe I’m wrong.  Let’s ask Occupy how fighting for Native American rain dance rights worked out for them.

We have a golden opportunity to reform the party, but only if we can trim the cancer from it and rally to push forward people who are genuinely worthy.  And let’s not get sidetracked by the people bitching about being “misgendered.”  But that’s just what I think.  Let’s not let all this protesting energy go to waste.  Not like what happened with Occupy.  Though, that was mainly because they didn’t expel the SJW cancer before it was far too late.
