Knuckle-Dragging, Anti-Semitic, Intimidated Readers Who Simply HATE Mercer

Critique, Ethics, Etiquette, Gender, Ilana Mercer, Intellectualism

A reply to this knuckle-dragger at the Unz Review’s Comments Section. You can read his bile for yourself:

Thank you for the opportunity to share, once again, a magnificent column, published on the Unz Review and elsewhere.

The Curious Case Of WND’s Vanishing, Veteran Paleolibertarian” addressed, for once and for all, a small, shrinking community’s stunning and consistent displays of intellectual dishonesty, over the years.

In this context, I am reminded of British comedian Alexei Sayle. When asked what he does when he watches a really talented satirist performing, Sayle replied: “I go back stage and tell him he’ll never make it.”

Indeed, the attitude to my work over 20 years has been the best proof of its quality.

If the Comments threads about “ilana mercer,” on the Unz Review, prove anything (other than that anti-Semitism lives), it is that mediocre men (for the most) hate a woman who can out-think them. As a defender of men, this saddens me, but it is, nevertheless, true.

So here is “The Curious Case Of WND’s Vanishing, Veteran Paleolibertarian,” which the venomous mediocrity commenting here so rudely derided, but failed to link for obvious reasons.

Ron Unz, our wonderful editor, chose the image appended to the column. (The brilliant Mr. Unz is one of the few intellectually honest individuals I know in this biz. He, Jack Kerwick and a handful of others.)

In reply to the kunckle-dragger’s sniveling: I’ll continue to refrain from interacting with his ilk (“fanboys”) on my column’s thread. But this dreadful cur (with apologies to dogs, which I love) further embarrasses himself when he offers up the non sequitur that engaging him is the litmus test for being a “good writer.”

You see what I’m up against? (Comment published here.)

Deplorables Won’t Allow Dissenters To Keep President Trump Honest

Critique, Donald Trump, Ethics, Family, Politics

The central lesson of the Steve Bannon saga is this:

Right or Left, there is no defying The Man and The Powers That Be, once ensconced. Be it Obama or Trump, Left or Right, Americans are expected to line up like dittoheads behind their respective King. And they do.

Matt Drudge, founder and editor of the influential Drudge Report, tweeted in praise of the pro-Trump Breitbart News website, name checking two fo its executives but conspicuously omitting Steven Bannon’s name.

“The terrific Larry Solov and Susie Breitbart will take Breitbart into the fresh future,” Drudge wrote Thursday. “Has it really been 10 yrs since Andrew told me on Santa Monica pier he was going to do it?! His first hire Alex Marlow [he was 21] became one of the best news editors in the world! MORE.”

As it stands, Donald Trump Deplorables won’t allow dissenters to keep President Trump honest. Is this good for The People? Hell no.

MORE.

Steve Bannon Said Ivanka Trump Is ‘Dumb As A Brick.’ You Can Take That To The Bank.

Donald Trump, Ethics, Family, Morality

I said so myself in “What Ivanka Wants, Ivanka Gets“:

Donald’s daughter has no place in the White House, no matter how cutely she “argues” for her ambitions:

“I want to be a force for good.” (Who defines “good,” Ivanka? Limited and delimited government means that it’s not you.)

“I want to pursue my passions.” (Your passions, Ivanka, are not necessarily the people’s passions—or even within the purview of their government.)

Whether she’s tweeting about the accomplishment that is the war on Syria or about inflicting her kids on China’s first couple, Ivanka’s tweets have the insipid emptiness of a contestant in a beauty pageant.

“Proud of my father for refusing to accept these horrendous crimes against humanity.”
“Proud of Arabella and Joseph for their performance in honor of President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan’s official visit to the US.” …

In the same column, I also called Jared Kushner her poodle, and asked readers “to study Mr. Kushner. The man’s a mouse. Have you ever heard Jared Kushner utter a word in public? Do you even know what he sounds like? The poor man looks low T—like he might one day go the way of Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner. (I love LGBTQ, so long as they come in peace.)”

It transpires now that, “Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner reportedly agreed that if either ran for president, it would be Ivanka. Well of course.

From “Steve Bannon says Ivanka Trump is ‘dumb as a brick’“:

Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, called Ivanka Trump, the president’s eldest daughter and top White House adviser, “dumb as a brick” in journalist Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, according to The Wall Street Journal, which reviewed a manuscript of the book on Wednesday.

Earlier Wednesday, The Guardian and New York Magazine published excerpts of the book, which included a host of critical comments by Bannon about top West Wing advisers and members of the president’s family.

A spokesman for Ivanka did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This isn’t the first time Bannon has taken a public shot at Ivanka.

Southern Poverty Law Center: ‘Racial Racketeering For Fun And Profit’

Criminal Injustice, Democrats, Ethics, Free Speech, Left-Liberalism

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), arguably America’s foremost hate group, has defended Antifa terrorists, but has maligned me, a hard-right, Jewish individualist (daughter of a rabbi), who is frequently and mercilessly attacked by anti-Semites (a taste in the Comments to my column, at the Unz Review).

In the SPLC you have a shakedown operation parading as an anti-hate group, but acting as a hate group, an apt characterization courtesy of “SPLC Exposed.

A free society will stand up to this crime syndicate, whose business is “racial racketeering for fun and profit,” as victim (and friend) Thomas DiLorenzo put it. Yes, these “do-gooders” destroy reputations and livelihoods for the sheer fun of it.

It is a submissive and feckless society that succumbs to SPLC extortion tactics. There is a price to pay for abandoning freedom and truth for the mess of pottage that is social approval.

Stand up to this crime syndicate!
