UPDATE II: Torture of A Different Kind (Feral Feminists)

Conservatism, Feminism, Gender, Political Correctness, Sex

If indeed Lena Dunham was raped, and I very much doubt it; females like her live a lie—her rapist deserves compensation; double the amount if Dunham spoke during the torture session.

This creature is beneath contempt. A lot of worthless (and talentless) females like Dunham are bankrupting and ruining the lives of innocent men. And contrary to the consensus among both conservative and liberal female commentators, who are, seemingly, unfamiliar with the bogus, violence-against-women statistical racket, sexual assault on campus is not epidemic.

Emily Yoffe of Slate has just unearthed, in 2014, the “misguided policies that infringe on the civil rights of men.” I wrote about the “Sub-Science [that] Bolsters Violence-Against-Women Claims” in 1999.

Dunham’s violation via Mediaite.com:

Dunham details in her book that back in college (Oberlin)–after a night of getting high on Xanax and cocaine–she was raped by the “campus’ resident conservative” named Barry. The incident was never reported to police. Upon the book’s release in September, Time magazine specifically writes a column about the incident, stating in the headline it was a ” Must-Read”. Dunham was paid a $3.5 million advance by Random House.
– Shortly after the book release, Bretibart.com’s John Nolte begins to dig into the allegation against Barry and even visited Oberlin to attempt to verify the story. Nolte discovers from many sources that there was, in fact, an easily-identifiable campus conservative named Barry who attended the college at the same time the now-28-year-old Dunham was there. But nothing else adds up: Barry denies even meeting her, a college radio station show (Real Talk with Dumbo) Dunham says Barry hosted apparently didn’t even exist. Note: Barry is an uncommon name (it hasn’t even made the Top-1000 list since 2004), so finding scores of “Barrys” from Dunham’s tenure at a relatively small college didn’t happen during the investigation.
– As a result, Barry–forced to take down his social media accounts and now seen as a rapist–hires a lawyer, Aaron Minc. Barry–also in his 20s and not exactly liquid in terms of cash–turns to crowdsourcing to help pay his legal fees. He notes that any money that exceeds said fees would go to charities assisting survivors of rape and sexual assault. …

UPDATE I (12/11): Facebook thread. Lying Down With Lena DungHam:

Ilana Mercer: DungHam and most of her sorority of solipsistic north American sisters don’t know what rape is. They think that regret after a romp between the sheets means they were raped. They should decamp to Darfur or Durban to see real suffering. Sickening.

My 2nd Amendment sister, Nicki Kenyon, a tough lady who emigrated to the US from communist Russia, writes this about Lena DungHam’s “rape” experience:

Nicki Kenyon: “This twisted, sick bimbo did it for the attention – nothing more. Barry had to hire a lawyer – at exorbitant prices, I’m sure – to defend himself after her allegations. The school expended resources investigating her claims. The news whores and mediots spent months covering this monstrosity’s allegations. If there were any standards out there, this creature would be shunned by the world.

I say this as someone who WAS sexually assaulted in college by a mentally ill ex, and who did have the police arrest him, and who did have nightmares for years after the fact, and who carries a gun for personal protection. People like her make it impossible to believe people like me. I would like to kick her in her naughty bits, so hard, that she thinks twice about ever spreading her legs again!”

UPDATE II:

The only woman in mainstream media, who, with all her faults, I’d call brilliant:

Sorry this column is late. I got raped again on the way home. Twice. I should clarify – by “raped,” I mean that two seductive Barry White songs came on the radio, which, according to the University of Virginia, constitutes rape.
TAKE BACK THE NIGHT! …

… It must be difficult for white, straight coeds, because it’s so hard to be a victim. You’re not black, you’re not gay, you don’t have leprosy – what can you do to acquire victim cool? Join the rape club! …

… The main threat to college students’ physical and emotional safety these days comes not from athletes or fraternity members, but from the feminists.”

Fight Classroom Idiocracy With The Literary Canon

Economy, Education, English, Literature, Objectivism, Political Correctness, Pop-Culture

“Fight Classroom Idiocracy With The Literary Canon” is the current column, now on WND. The WND version has been scrubbed of the “salacious sex scene,” excerpted below, which happens to be required reading in some kids’ English class:

The fraught relationship between state and society carries over into classroom and town hall. Something of a commonplace in police state USA is the scene in which a citizen is arrested for speaking his mind to a public official, pedagogue or politician.

Our story begins with a dad, William Baer, a lawyer, I believe, who resides in New Hampshire, the state whose motto is “Live Free or Die.” For speaking out of turn at a school board meeting, Baer was cuffed and carted out of a forum of educrats and obedient parents, herded together at the Gilford high school. An arrest and a charge of disorderly conduct followed—Baer, after all, had exceeded the talk time allotted to him.

“It was basically, you make a statement, say what you want and sit down,” the dad told a local television station. “‘Sit down and shut up’ … [is] not how you interact with adults.”

In the background to the online YouTube clip of the event one can hear the dulcet voice of a female emcee, delighting in the petty abuse of power over a powerless parent.

Mr. Baer was protesting a novel which was required reading in his 14-year-old daughter’s English class: “Nineteen Minutes” by home girl Jodi Picoult. (One of Australia’s finest writers, also the copy editor of this writer’s last book, relates that every time he gets on a train or a bus, there seems to be some female or three reading a Jodi P. “masterpiece.”)

Easily more offensive than the salacious sex scene on page 313 of Picoult’s novel is the rotten writing throughout:

“‘Relax,’ Matt murmured, and then he sank his teeth into her shoulder. He pinned her hands over her head and ground his hips against hers. She could feel his erection, hot against her stomach. ”
… She couldn’t remember ever feeling so heavy, as if her heart were beating between her legs. She clawed at Matt’s back to bring him closer. “‘Yeah,’ he groaned, and he pushed her thighs apart. And then suddenly Matt was inside her, pumping so hard that she scooted backward on the carpet, burning the backs of her legs.
… (H)e clamped his hand over her mouth and drove harder and harder until Josie felt him come.
“Semen, sticky and hot, pooled on the carpet beneath her.”

The book’s titillating topics—bullying, school shootings, teen sex and pregnancy—verge on the political. Inculcating kids early on with these cumbersome, constricted constructs serves to stunt young minds. The young reader is intellectually disemboweled, as he is steered into thinking along certain narrow, politically pleasing lines. …

… Without the literary canon, young minds are doomed to become as dim and sclerotic as those of the educators who assign them the piss-poor reading material aforementioned

Read the rest. “Fight Classroom Idiocracy With The Literary Canon” is the current column, now on WND.

Those State-Manufactured Millennials

Education, Liberty, Political Correctness, Propaganda, The State

Comedian Chris Rock avoids doing his routine in front of Millennial audiences—although he dissembles by identifying them as excessively “conservative,” when in fact he means to say Millennials are politically correct to a fault.

I’ve long said that of the segment of readers who’ve contacted me over the years—and with a few wonderful exceptions—the Millennials are the most ignorant, arrogant, politically correct, mindless, monolithic and brainwashed cohort. In their suitability to conformity, Millennials are probably the first state-manufactured generation; a product of government indoctrination K-12 and beyond. From Kindergarten through 12th Grade, on to tertiary and graduate schools, they’re groomed as obedient left-liberals bereft of a funny bone in their bodies, much less an original thought.

Millennials have acquired an education but are profoundly uneducated: they don’t know history, literature, great music, etc. And they seem to think that piercing their noses and bellybuttons and preaching global warming is tantamount to individualism, when in fact they run with the herd.

As readers of this space, Millennials don’t linger for long.

Likewise, Robby Soave at Reason.com finds “Rock’s remarks about why he no longer performs at college campuses most illuminating”:

What do you make of the attempt to bar Bill Maher from speaking at Berkeley for his riff on Muslims?

Well, I love Bill, but I stopped playing colleges, and the reason is because they’re way too conservative.

In their political views?

Not in their political views — not like they’re voting Republican — but in their social views and their willingness not to offend anybody. Kids raised on a culture of “We’re not going to keep score in the game because we don’t want anybody to lose.” Or just ignoring race to a fault. You can’t say “the black kid over there.” No, it’s “the guy with the red shoes.” You can’t even be offensive on your way to being inoffensive.

When did you start to notice this?

About eight years ago. Probably a couple of tours ago. It was just like, This is not as much fun as it used to be. I remember talking to George Carlin before he died and him saying the exact same thing.

Provocative comedians avoiding the college scene?

Tyranny Strives For Uniformity: The Onslaught Against Steve Hofmeyr

Free Speech, Media, Natural Law, Political Correctness, Race, Racism, South-Africa

South African media (even more illiberal than America’s) have almost nothing positive to say about Steve Hofmeyr, an immensely popular singer, songwriter, actor and Afrikaner activist. (In the new multicultural South Africa, Afrikaner identity is tantamount to a “racist” identity, naturally.) For speaking out of turn, the forces of tyranny have converged on Hofmeyr with the intent to silence him, and worse. Note the sovietized nomenclature used to bring one man to heel and to induce conformity: Hofmeyr is said to go against “nation-building,” to be “extremely abnormal,” to express a “startling sentiment.”

OMG!

A fellow named Brad Cibane, in training at the American Ivy League (which, increasingly, does not stand for true intellectual excellence) to excel as Conformity Enforcer in South Africa, illustrates his terrifying notion of allowable speech. Deploying somewhat specious distinctions such as the “vertical right to free speech vs. horizontal right to free speech”— Cibane does, however, make a valid point with respect to Hofmeyr’s court injunction against a clown called Conrad Koch. Both have a natural right to speak out of turn. Nevertheless, I do understand Hofmeyr wanting to use all arrows in his quiver because the deck—the state included—is stacked against him and his cause.

The libertarian imperative here is to deal with the meta-issues, leaving out the substance of the offending words: They are irrelevant. As this column has explained, policing what people say for political propriety is not a dance in which libertarians should partake—it is “a dance adopted by the political establishment to cow contrarians into submission. By going on the defensive—allowing themselves to be drawn into these exchanges—libertarians are, inadvertently, conceding that speech should be policed for propriety, and that those who violate standards set by the PC set are somehow defective on those grounds alone, and deserve to be purged from “polite” company.”

UPDATED: FBI: The Face of Treason

Government, Justice, Law, libertarianism, Natural Law, Political Correctness, Terrorism, The State

FBI Director James Comey believes that “unless [his] passport is revoked,” an American citizen who holds an American passport and who has fought for ISIS—maybe even decapitated a dhimmi or two—“is entitled to come back” to the US.

Comey was discussing American exported fighters for ISIS on “60 Minutes.” This traitor to the people who pay for his keep promised to “track them very carefully.”

That makes me feel much better. How about you?

Judge Andrew Napolitano’s retort, on “The Kelly File,” was to praise this FBI director’s mettle, in general, while disputing the legal grounds for Comey’s odd position:

“He forgot there’s a statute called providing material assistance to a terrorist organization,” Napolitano said of Comey. “So if he knows that Americans have been fighting with ISIS and he also knows that the secretary of state has declared ISIS a terrorist organization, that is more than enough evidence for him to arrest them upon their re-entry to the U.S. It is crazy to let them back in and wait and see what they do.”

“Is this treason,” Kelly wanted to know. She was referring, of course, to the returning ISIS terrorists, and their position vis-a-vis the US.

What about the clear-cut case of Comey?

UPDATE: “Lite libertarians” or “thin libertarians” live in la-la land and don’t much care about the rights to property and life of innocent friends, family and neighbors. Let me make this simple: Individuals who want to behead Americans: yes, the nightwatchman state has a case of limiting their access to heads. To limit their access to American heads is not aggression. To say, “No, you creep, you can’t come in,” is not aggression. OK, leave “creep” off if it offends left-libertarians.

Mirth From Maher, For A Change

Islam, Left-Liberalism, Multiculturalism, Political Correctness

In the left’s peanut gallery, comedian Bill Maher is considered a philosopher-king. The host of HBO’s “Real Time” seldom tickles my funny bone, because he’s both … politically predictable and PC. But this week, Maher killed it:

BILL MAHER: “President Obama keeps insisting that ISIS is not Islamic. Well, maybe they don’t practice the Muslim faith the same way he does. But if vast numbers of Muslims across the world believe, and they do, that humans deserve to die for merely holding a different idea or drawing a cartoon or writing a book or eloping with the wrong person, not only does the Muslim world have something in common with ISIS, it has too much in common with ISIS.”

[SNIP]

Maher, for heaven’s sake, is a comedian. Scholar of religion Reza Aslan makes a fair point or two against Maher’s generalizations, although Aslan would be too PC himself to openly discuss, say, the monstrous morals that permit so many Hindus to practice “fetal sex selection.”

MORE.

In case you’re unfamiliar with his political “thought,” Maher is the intellectual pigmy who once told TV Talker Joe Scarborough he wanted Bush impeached—but not for anything meaningful, such as, say, prosecuting an illegal and unjust war (all of which Bush did). Rather, Maher argued quite seriously that impeachment proceedings ought to be initiated on no other grounds than that, on 9/11, after Bush had been told by Andrew Card that America had been attacked, he sat put for seven minutes at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School. Maher’s motivation for impeachment was as frivolous as the impetus for Bill Clinton’s.
