Your Corporate Shill is Showing (A response to Bill Maher)

It’s so weird to me to see how my opinion of what was once one of my favorite comedians shift so sharply in recent years.  It’s genuinely awe-inspiring.  Time was, this guy was the voice of a movement.  The left had this big comedian who had big name draw and could speak truth to power.  It was great stuff.  He could go after religion so sharply.  He fought against the regressive left and their ideas that Islam should be a protected class of people.  Or how political correctness is fucking over comedy.  He went up against titans.  But those days seem to be long gone.

Now, Bill Maher is all about shitting on the youth.  Shitting on the future of the Democrat Party.  Why?  Because they don’t want to accept corporatists.  Because they have standards and refuse to just accept these corporate tools who want to shovel more of the same when we are TIRED of this game.  A lot of people give people like me shit because I REFUSE to vote for a candidate I don’t believe in.  I won’t participate in lesser-of-two-evils voting.  That’s how we got Trump.  The orange monkey in office is 30 years of lesser-of-two-evils voting coming home to roost.

In his most recent New Rules segment, Maher decided to go after Millennials again by saying that we need to stop saying no to corporatist candidates.  We need to just accept a candidate, no matter how much of a tool they are.  After all, Kamala Harris isn’t so bad.  She’s a complete corporate drone who is against legalizing marijuana (how is Bill Maher on her side with that in mind?  He’s been one of the biggest proponents of legalization, so why is he suddenly in her corner?  Oh right, he’s a corporate shill too.  Never mind), but so what?  She’s been recorded at events for banks talking about beating the poor with a stick.  Whatever.

Or with Beto O’Rourke, he takes oil money.  So what?  He’s a Texan, after all!  Yeah, except we want a candidate who actually cares about the environment and the Green New Deal.  Maybe a candidate taking oil money, when they have a vested interest in continuing to fuck up the planet is a bad thing?  Just a thought.

Oh, and the bit about Elizabeth Warren with the Native American thing.  Yeah, that was pretty stupid, of her and Trump.  The whole thing made both of them look like idiots.  But that isn’t why people like me refuse to support her.  It’s because she’s said that she isn’t in support of universal healthcare or that she kissed Shillary’s ring before to try and cozy up to the establishment.  Makes me question her motives.

Then he actually had something nice to say about Bernie, going after that point that there was abuse allegations during his campaign with some of his staff.  Well, he didn’t know about that, and I am all for Bill defending him on it.  In fact, Bernie is my go-to so far.  Though, he hasn’t announced.  That is leaving me wondering what’s going on.  His silence with 2020 around the corner and the time being now that people are already starting to campaign is weird, to me.

I notice that Bill had nothing to say about Tulsi Gabbard.  Oh right, he’s nothing but a tool of the mainstream media, and they DESPISE that woman.  Why?  Because she’s against the military industrial complex and wants to bring our troops home.  She doesn’t believe in interventionist wars in the Middle East.  She wants to bring universal healthcare to this country and is all for the Green New Deal, which Maher’s corporate owners are against.  That woman embodies everything that Maher’s benefactors and now Maher himself stands against.  So naturally, when talking about the Democrat candidates, he has nothing to say about her.  That might make him too much like a liberal.  Something we all know that Maher isn’t.  No, now he’s a centrist corporate drone.  To come so far, only to fall.  Well done, Bill.

Finally, Maher shits on millennials again, taking the time to call them weak and saying that they have no real problems.  I find the strategy of shitting on those who are supposed to stand with you really interesting.  We’re seeing, more and more, that liberals are not just accepting the same old shit.  We want something new, and will give those who refuse to give it to us and fight against us the one-finger salute all the way to the polls.  Or rather, staying at home while they wonder where their base went.  You’d think the strategy would be to try and reason with the millennials, saying that it is frustrating that there are so few genuinely liberal candidates running, but that we should at least hold the line.  But nope!  Fuck millennials, because fuck Trump.  A strategy that I can virtually guarantee they are going to take with them to the campaign if a corporate Democrat wins again, and it won’t work.  They know it won’t work, so the media is doing everything they can in this Trump-mania Blitzkrieg that is desperate to get the millennials on their side.

Maher, you haven’t had to worry about anything that millennials do for 40 years.  You’re an old partisan hack who shits on the people who are saddled with mountains of debt because everyone told us when we were young to get degrees, and who are about to inherit a planet that is fucking dying.  But please, shit on us a little more.  I’m sure that is going to get even more millennials to come to your banners.  I’m sure that the Democrats are going to win big by telling their base to fuck off.  I’m sure that they are going to rally the country with another corporate tool.  Let’s try that again and see what happens.

SIONR: Bill Maher Makes Fun of Stan Lee Fans

Man, I remember a while back when I saw the stand-up of Bill Maher during the Bush years.  That was some funny shit.  But over the years, I’ve seen a comedian who made fun of politics and religion turn into something else.  It was a gradual thing, and maybe my own nostalgia put on some goggles that I couldn’t see around, but I did get to see Maher become a very different person.  It was a person who I am finding more and more I don’t like.  In fact, I kind of hate the pretentious prick.  Why?  Because Maher has become one of those people who does just like my conservative uncle and attacks the generation beneath him.  Why?  Because we don’t fit into the mold that he believes all adults should.

As such, when Stan Lee died, he didn’t take the opportunity to talk about how he promoted a world of tolerance and fighting hate with kindness, instead he took the time to attack those who read comic books as adults and who admire Stan Lee.  Why?  Because we aren’t adult enough for him.  Here’s a link to the blog post in question, now let’s talk about it.

The guy who created Spider-Man and the Hulk has died, and America is in mourning. Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie, I guess. Someone on Reddit posted, “I’m so incredibly grateful I lived in a world that included Stan Lee.” Personally, I’m grateful I lived in a world that included oxygen and trees, but to each his own. Now, I have nothing against comic books – I read them now and then when I was a kid and I was all out of Hardy Boys. But the assumption everyone had back then, both the adults and the kids, was that comics were for kids, and when you grew up you moved on to big-boy books without the pictures.

Oh I’m sorry, Bill.  I’m sorry that people don’t fit into your narrow viewpoint of what is acceptable behavior for an adult.  That really does bum me out.  I mean sure, there have been some comics that tell mature stories like “Maus” or “The Killing Joke.”  Can’t have that.  Then we have to start opening our eyes to other forms of art that exist.  I swear, this sounds EXACTLY like Roger Ebert (the most overrated film critic in history) saying that video games can never be art.

Wanna know something, Bill?  I like “big-boy books without pictures” too!  You can like both!  I can marvel at the research Crichton shows off in books like “Prey,” and the amazing look at the connection between the military and science books like Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s work “Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the Military.”  But then I can read the Old Man Logan series of comics and like that too, for very different reasons.  Does this make me stupider?  Does this make me a lesser person because of it?  I’m all ears, you pretentious talk show jockey.  Yeah, because you are fostering the “intellectual” side of the world, right?

Like the days you had that show Politically Incorrect where it was about people arguing.  Was that a more grown-up version of Jerry Springer?  To what intellectual caliber do you ascribe that show?  I put it as political talk show, entertaining but intellectually void.  Much like the show you do now.

 

And now when adults are forced to do grown-up things like buy auto insurance, they call it “adulting,” and act like it’s some giant struggle.

Hey Bill, I’m gonna let you in on a little something.  It’s something that your entitled ass wouldn’t know thing-one about, because you’ve been in your financial situation for a REALLY long time, but for people like me it is part of every day, but when you are poor as fuck, buying car insurance is a big deal!

There was a time, a few years back, when I was so poor that I had to make a choice between keeping the roof over my head or eating, and I chose the roof.  I’ve starved myself in order to keep my apartment.  That’s how bad things have been for me.  I am 30 years old as of ten days ago today, and I FINALLY have a job where I don’t have to be scared to death of my finances.  Where I can actually save and try and build a future.  So when I had to look at car insurance, because my parents couldn’t help me anymore, it was a huge fucking deal for me, because this was before I was where I am now and my job was barely making enough for me to scrape by.

Between my medical issues and my insurance only covering so much (that’s another thing, I have a job where I have insurance now.  Otherwise I would be in real trouble), there are so many financial issues I have to contend with on a monthly basis.  Up until I got this most recent job that I started on Tuesday, thinking about my finances was a scary thing that gave me sweats some nights.  It’s genuinely strange to not be in that position.  To be able to go on Amazon and look at my list of stuff I want and go “huh, I can actually buy some of this stuff now.”

But what would you know about this?  What would a man who has been worth millions of YEARS know about what it’s like to be in my position?  Not a fucking thing!  Hell, you have made a sport at yelling at millennials because we aren’t conforming to what you want us to be.  Now sure, you’ve gone after legitimate problems like the insane regressive left, but when you have these moments.  Ones where you attack us for something that is so insignificant.  Yeah, we lost an icon for an industry that has given so much to us.  We lost a great man who has objectively done so much for our species.  That doesn’t matter, though!  You can use this as a launch-point to ridicule the generation beneath you.

You are such a prick.  You’ve become the angry grandpa yelling at the kids today for their music and their television and their anything else that doesn’t make sense to you.  How ironic, you went from making fun of those who were older and holding the younger generation back, to becoming one of them.

I’m not saying we’ve necessarily gotten stupider. The average Joe is smarter in a lot of ways than he was in, say, the 1940s, when a big night out was a Three Stooges short and a Carmen Miranda musical. The problem is, we’re using our smarts on stupid stuff. I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important.

Bill, I’m gonna be straight with ya here – fuck you.  You’re so fucking uninformed.  You look at the forest and the trees are a mythical creature that you have never seen before.  I don’t get how someone who claims to be an advocate for liberal America can’t see the problem.

Donald Trump got elected because of over 30 years of “lesser of two evils” voting.  He got elected because a corporate dinosaur rigged the primary against and ACTUAL person standing up for the common man (and who you whole-heartedly supported.  As Julian Assange pwned your ass with, someone you gave $1 million to), and was so disliked by her own party that she couldn’t fill up a high school gym.  Meanwhile, her primary opponent filled up stadiums.  Her and her party used every trick in the book, along with the fact that the Democratic Party is nothing but corporate shills to make it so people couldn’t vote if they weren’t registered Democrats, the superdelegates were already in Shillary’s pocket, and that she actually OWNS the DNC!  Did the revelation from Donna Brazile chap your ass?  Exposing that corporate bitch for what she is?

The orange-haired buffoon got elected because Hillary was so arrogant to just assume that the rust-belt states had her back and would stand with her, so she didn’t campaign there, while her opponent campaigned hard and actually talked to people there.  You know, something neither you nor Hillary know anything about doing.  I kinda wonder what an actual conversation with either of you would be like.  Her especially since she’s a corporate drone.  Can’t input the talking points if she’s talking to a real person and not a teleprompter.

Let’s be honest, Bill, you’re nothing but an out-of-touch dinosaur, along with all the other Corporate Democrat dinosaurs who are mad at the kids for not standing with you.  Except we aren’t kids anymore, Bill.  We’re grown-ass adults, and now we can vote, and we can choose to stay home and not support someone we hate.  That’s something we can do!  I know, shocking stuff.  So bourgeois liberals like you get all mad and instead of actually looking at the reasons why, you do what the regressive left you have gone after does – you attack those who don’t agree with you.  You attack the youth for not towing the line.

Fuck you, Bill.  It saddens me that someone I used to think was one of the good guys is now just another tool of the worst aspects of this country.  Just like Nancy Pelosi (the bitch who needs to go) and the woman you gave more money than people like me will likely ever see in our lives to, Hillary Clinton.

Until next time, a quote,

“We’re really sorry we suck so much.  I mean, it’s not like we jacked up college tuition prices or destroyed the manufacturing industry, started two quagmire wars, gutted the unions, destroyed the global economy, and left our offspring with an environmentally devastated planet stripped of its natural resources.  Man, it would be crazy if there was a generation that recklessly awful, huh?” – Millennials: We Suck and We’re Sorry

The Purge Has Begun With Alex Jones

I’m not a conservative, nor do I enjoy Alex Jones’ or Info Wars’ content.  It is necessary to put that out there before I go too deeply into this, because the classic deflection by people who are in support of what has happened to what I am about to say is that I’m just a conservative so fuck me.  It’s a childish defense, void of looking at a person, but whatever.  I think that Alex Jones is a huckster and charlatan.  He pretends to be informing people, yet goes out of his way to sell supplements to people.  Where once he was a loud, if not excessive, voice for the counterculture, now he is a demagogue for the right and has sold out to whoever he can shill for.  The man has no redemptive qualities.  And yet, when I see that social media all over is purging his content, a chill goes down my spine.

We live in this world where freedom of speech is a buzzword.  It bums me out that that is what we have come to.  That the true nature of it and what it is supposed to represent is lost to people.  That should bother everyone, but I know it doesn’t.  Conservative, liberal, everyone thinks that freedom of speech only stands for them and what they want to say.  I’ve heard snowflakes on both sides pining for the fact that the other side gets a platform.  There was something that Milo Yiannopoulos (another person I have little respect for, but agree with on this point) said – that freedom of speech was something that every generation needed to come to understand and respect.  To be shown why it is valuable.  We may be at that point.

The common refrain I hear is that Alex Jones deliberately lied.  True.  So has EVERY media outlet that you can think of, to one extent or another.  Where is the honesty in big corporate media?  Them, who sucked Hillary Clinton’s cock because she had them in her pocket.  As we saw with the WikiLeaks and the Donna Brazile info drops.  The 5th Estate is supposed to be the vanguards of democracy, instead they were in the pockets of those who wished to be in power.

But Lucien, Alex Jones said horrible things about the families of Sandy Hook victims!  How can you support his right to say that?!

And the entire corporate media was complicit in Bush’s lies about Iraq having WMDs.  They were the yes-men for the government while we invaded a part of the world, killing countless innocent people.  Quagmire wars that we have yet to extricate ourselves from to this day.  Alex Jones said inflammatory and downright ugly things about people whose lives had been touched by a school shooting.  The rest of the media was too gutless to do their due diligence after 9/11 and tell those in power that what we were doing in the Middle East was wrong.  I don’t really see a huge amount of difference.

The next argument is that these social media platforms have a right to kick anyone off at any time.  They have that right.  Here’s the thing – we now have the networks that link our world together becoming the censor.  Telling us what is right for our eyes to see and our ears to hear.  Instead of being bulwarks against the tide of nuance-lacking idiots on the left and the right and letting the public eye pass judgement over those who speak and giving them a platform to speak back, they have chosen to tell YOU what is right for you to see and hear.

Don’t for one second believe that this ends here.  It doesn’t.  Everyone will cheer and look on in smug, righteous zeal the deplatforming of Alex Jones.  Well, who will it be next?  Which voice will be the next one to be snuffed out by the platforms that claim to be for everyone?  So long as it’s conservatives, the left will cheer and fawn.  What happens when it starts being voices on the left who don’t agree with the social justice or modern feminism narrative?  What happens when it’s people who are critical of the social media?  We’ve already seen that YouTube immediately demonetizes videos that are critical of their platform.  “You have criticisms of us?!  Well fuck that video getting monetized!  Take that, you ungrateful ass-hat!”

I believe that Alex Jones is a demagogue, a charlatan, a crude and disgusting person.  But his right to have a platform for his speech is something I will defend.  Because I want everyone, regardless of how toxic their ideas to have a voice in the public eye.  It’s better to have more ideas in the world that are propagated.  Because we can argue with those ideas.  We can debate and people can have new thoughts.  When we start stripping away different perspectives, homogenizing the world, censoring speech that powerful people on high tell us is wrong, the world ALWAYS becomes a worse place.  There is too much history here to think otherwise.

But I don’t think I’m reaching anyone saying that.  After all, freedom of speech is a meme, a buzzword, a thing to sling at the people you don’t like now.  Aren’t you proud?

Thoughts on Ed Schultz Death

I found out that yesterday, Ed Schultz had died.  He was 64 years old, which is pretty young in this day and age to go.  Got me thinking about a long time ago in my life.  A time when I was much more politically active and had a very different group of friends in my life  Kind of waxing nostalgia here, but indulge me a bit.  I am going to talk about my thoughts on Ed Schulz as well.  It’s all connected.

The first time I caught his show, it was in the dorms.  As a young liberal who was headed to college, MSNBC was a common place I viewed.  Back in the days before they showed their hand as the tired corporate whores they are.  Fond memories of the Special Comment segments by Keith Olbermann.  Good times.  A lot of things in my life developed during those days.  My love of certain YouTubers, my political ideologies, a lot of my thoughts about the world.  Changes did happen, but that was how I grew then.

One of the people that I saw was Ed Schultz.  Here was a guy who was loud, boisterous, and as far as I could see, very populist.  He didn’t like corporate America anymore than I did.  He wanted to give power to the people.  He was at the head of people demanding universal healthcare back when the Obamacare debates were happening, and was just as angry as I was that Obama sold out to the private insurance companies and didn’t even stand his ground for a second on any of what he wanted.

However, not everyone in my circle felt the way I did about him.  A former girly-mate who is not especially fond of me anymore thought that Schultz was quite insufferable.  I believe the comparison she made was that he is “the left’s version of Rush Limbaugh.”  Why?  Because he is loud and principled?  It shows what kind of person she is.  The two of us fell out because her husband stopped enjoying my company.  Like any wife does, the moment her spouse doesn’t like someone, neither does she.  I get the feeling that she was an absolute rabid dog for Hillary Clinton.  I also figure that once the SJW movement within politics grew, she and her husband were right at the front of it.  Alas, nothing to be gained from thinking about it now.

Throughout my days in the dorms, at least until he left MSNBC, Ed Schultz was a voice that I watched with great enthusiasm.  I found out from a shuttle driver on campus that I was quite fond of that he also had a radio show.  Maybe that’s why my ex-girly-mate thought he was akin to Rush Limbaugh.  Unsure.

We live in an interesting era.  People no longer like loud, boisterous individuals with strong values.  Now we live in an era where everyone wants some soft-spoken, mature-sounding person.  Why?  I guess it conveys wisdom?  Unsure.  I myself find it tedious.  Not only have I seen this in political commentary, but also in online discourse.  Everyone is rushing to be super open and non-confrontational.  The days of the pwnage videos and people looking to go after idiots who have stupid views, in a way that shows the factual reasons why they are wrong while combining it with braggadocios personalities, is gone.  Maybe that’s why I still enjoy The Amazing Atheist.  At least there I can feel some passion about his beliefs.  Not this Boogie2988 shit where you have to be nice to everyone.

I will never understand why people are so afraid of having strong feelings for what they believe in.  If you believe you are right, then say so, dammit!  You can be articulate and show why you’re right in a very thoughtful way while also having the strength of your convictions.  Perhaps everyone just associates being loud and argumentative with the Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh types.  The problem with them is that they didn’t cite things.  They didn’t make good arguments.  They just yelled a lot and counted on that to convince their equally-stupid audiences.

Ed Schultz didn’t strike me as that guy.  Neither did old-school Keith Olbermann.  Alas, those days are gone, and now a voice of gravitas and populist idealism is gone.  It’s a shame, but that’s how it goes.  Rest in peace, Ed.  I wish you all the best.

Shooting in Las Vegas, Let the Political Bickering Begin!

There was a horrific shooting in Las Vegas today, where a 64 year old man opened fire on a crowd at a concert from his 32nd story window.  At least 50 confirmed dead and over 200 wounded at the time of writing this post.  Another horrible tragedy that shouldn’t have happened, but did.  Got to see a video where a guy stayed standing while everyone was ducking for cover, shouting at the shooter to aim for him.  That takes balls of absolute steel.  No idea if that guy was one of the victims, but if so, you did a service to try and save people by having the gunman go after you.

The moment the story broke, I got to see the left and the right immediately lining up to get their political views heard.  From the social justice retards who say that this was a problem of white privilege, and male privilege, and it was a racial crime.  To the right who refuse to call this guy a terrorist even though he most likely is.  I get the feeling a crime like this was motivate by political ideology.  If he killed for political ideals, he’s a terrorist.  If he just felt like opening fire on a crowd, he’s a fucking psychopath who decided to kill and injure a ton of people because he could.

Then we got other right-wing posts deciding to go after the left for some of the violent rhetoric they said about wanting to kill Trump.  I suppose I could go after the likes of Riley E Dennis, if I wanted to get on that bandwagon, but I don’t.  Even though she has her own beliefs about attacking people.  The left wants to use this opportunity to come out and defend Islam.  Because Groj forbid anyone say that Muslim has even committed terrorism before.  Nope, not once *cough*bullshit!*cough*

Christians in America had to make their voices heard and talk about how Gawd would have fixed all this.  I’m sure all the people who are dead right now didn’t have Jeebus at all in their hearts.  Nope, not one.  In a nation that is 80% Christian, I’m sure not one of those people wasn’t a practicing Christian.  Maybe Jim Bakker can come out and say that this shooting was Gawd’s response to men doing each other in the ass.

So what about me?  What is my stance on all this?  What political viewpoint am I going to espouse right now?  Here is what I have done – donate to a GoFundMe account someone set up to help the victims.  Here’s the link, go donate.  That’s something to do. Something more valuable than any of the arguing idiots on Twitter.  What else am I going to do?  Be saddened by this.  Be saddened by the fact that this kind of wanton killing is becoming so commonplace.  Feel so ashamed of the fact that I share a species with a fucking animal who got out on balcony or an open window and opened fire with a fucking automatic weapon at a crowd of people just listening to music.

It’s beyond clear something needs to happen.  With stricter gun laws help.  Not this kind of situation.  I still believe that gun control does need to be tightened, but I am still aware enough of the way things work to realize that even if all the guns were strictly controlled, the crazed lone gunman will still be a threat.  Help America’s failing mental health system.  Maybe that would help some of the problem, but as we have seen with people like Timothy McVeigh, not all of the people who do this sort of shit are outright insane.  For as evil as what McVeigh did, he had very firm and rationalized (not rational, rationalized) reasons for what he did.  This shooter may have as well.  We may never know.

I don’t know what the right thing is to do.  I donated to a fund set up to help victims.  After all the hurricane destruction down in the Florida and Texas I donated to the Red Cross.  It’s as much as I can think to do in this situation.  Because here’s the thing which has blown my fucking mind – as soon as the story broke, the fighting started.  The political bickering began before we even knew how many are dead and injured.  Remember when national tragedies brought people together?  Remember when we would set aside personal differences to try and help those in need when the situation called for it?  Where the fuck has that mentality gone?!  Are we just so eager to hate each other than we’ll use any excuse we can?  Fuck the victims, I have to make my point known!  Yeah, fuck white people!  Fuck gun control!  Fuck calling him a terrorist!  Let’s all just bicker over whatever stupid bullshit while the blood flows in the streets.

Sister-diddler Lena Dunham said that this has to be political, and supposedly-recovering SJW Laci Green agreed.  Yeah, let’s talk about white privilege!  Why the fuck not?!  Instead of deciding to set all that bullshit aside and actually coming together as a community and as a species, we look for any reason to drive the wedges of division further in.  I am so fucking ashamed of my species when I see us all do everything we can to hate each other and not even try and care, while people literally die. The left and the right stand on mountains of bodies in order to scream at each other over who is correct.

Fuck all of us.  We clearly are beyond redemption as a species.  Can Trump and Un just start dropping the nukes so World War III can start and another species can have a fucking shot?  Please?!  But hey, let’s at least be glad of one thing – there was at least one person in all of this who didn’t take a side and choose to be picky.

The shooter.

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.
