UPDATED V (5/2) Message From Fred (4/8/022): Mercer And Reed: The Two Best Columns Now Under One Roof

Aesthetics, Argument, Conservatism, Culture, English, FRED REED, Ilana Mercer, Logic, Republicans, The Zeitgeist

It’s good to see Fred Reed’s many fans begin to flock to—and comment about–his column, “Fred On Everything,” on Barely A Blog, where it now lives.

Fred’s column is the only opinion column I read and eagerly await. (Oops: And Boyd Cathey, the great Sean Gabb, Pepe Escobar, of late and Paul Craig Roberts.) Good enough an endorsement for those who know my intolerance for what passes for writing these days—the cliches, the banalities, the incontinent redundancies, and lack of originality; the meandering, solipsistic self-indulgence, the logic as lax as the grammar, the non-sequiturs in such abundance; not to mention those undisciplined flights into conspiracy. Perhaps not woke, but still without wit or character—put out these days by our side is prose so singularly gutless, charmless, mirthless and prissy that it assaults the senses.

And I have not even touched on the futile, partisan talking points: “The left this, abortion that; socialism/communism, socialism/communism (the pickle we’re in goes so far beyond that); “Iran, Iran, China, China.” In short, the pointless, talking-points theater that is the Republican Racket.

Fred assaults sensibilities alright, but never in the ways I disgorged above (in an intentionally flood-like manner). And he can conjugate the verb “to spit.”

As for the Mercer Column: By way of an example, “On Sexual Bombast And Bliss” was written in 2000 for a then-edgy, interesting Calgary Herald. The paper went woke and invalidated itself. The column did not and is ever valid. You can read tracts like “Sexual Bombast,” on this site here. Try “Harvey Sweinstein And Hollywood’s Hos,” for example.

When you Subscribe to this newsletter, you get Mercer and “Fred on Everything.” The two best columns under one roof.

UPDATE (4/4/022): Very important in the age of sniveling sanctimony on the Left and Right: The Mercer and Reed columns are adult tracts. The humor is adult humor. The authors are not coy—and there is no cloying, puritanical shying away from adult topics.

UPDATE II: Message From Fred (4/6/022):

“Fred will be on travel until April 20, but shortly thereafter will resume his lies, distortions, and scurrility  if he has not been tracked down by the CIA and shot.”

Gotta love him.

Caitlyn Jenner’s Greatest Achievement

Aesthetics, Celebrity, Pop-Culture, Relatives, Sex

Caitlyn Jenner, as the Idiocracy in which we are mired is currently broadcasting, aims to become California’s next governor. Shrug.

What is her biggest achievement? Jenner, post gender-reassignment, still loves women.

Given the women who surrounded her—the Kardashians, in all their venom, vulgarity, vainglory and vacuity (my involuntary alliterative tic really got going there)—that is indeed a true achievement.

UPDATE II (4/9): Whites: Stop Weeping And ‘Weatherize’ Your Kids

Aesthetics, Argument, Egalitarianism, Multiculturalism, Pop-Culture, Propaganda, Race, Racism, South-Africa, The West

Americans aren’t understanding on a visceral level the extent of the envy behind anti-White animus.

It’s the ethnocidal jealousy described in my book, “Into The Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America From Post-Apartheid South Africa.” It made the ugly Hutus take machetes to the beautiful Tutsis, killing a million. It’s what drives so much black-on-white violent crime.

This kind of jealousy makes uglies gouge blue eyes out. Literally.

Whites: Stop weeping and weatherize your kids, in other words, make warriors out of them.

See: “How To Think And Act Like A Ruthless Warrior By Jack Kerwick.”

AND:

Why Hatred Of Whites Is Here To Stay”

UPDATE (2/24): The “Why Do They Come Here, Then” Argument.

Another evasive tack taken, I believe, even by Tucker Carlson, @DrC88118048 No contradictions here. The only contradiction lies in the dumb West’s response of letting ’em in: Third World likes your stuff–likes the countries you create–just doesn’t like you creative types very much: Envy!

UPDATE II (4/9): The same applies to politicians. Grow a backbone.

Don’t apologize, Ron Johnson. Don’t bow to the racialist hostage takers. Stand tall. We were all petrified BLM and Antifa would come to out neighborhoods. Still are! The Jan 6 crowd? Harmless to you and me. Speak for us, man!

Hilaria Baldwin: An American Prototype Infests The World

Aesthetics, America, Gender, Intelligence, Pop-Culture, Sex

Whatever their ethnicity, the defining quality about today’s woman—and Hilaria Baldwin is a prototype proliferating around the world—is their mind-numbing banality, asininity, audacity, vacuity; ignorance, narcissism and self-adoration unwarranted.

The Silly Sex around the world even speaks the same:

“This piss-poor, teenybopper English comes with sound effects. …[these] tarts all speak in insufferable, grating, staccato tones. At least, that is how I have always described the gravelly voice of the tele-ditz. And yet, believe it or not, such a depiction is no longer politically proper. The voices from hell have been dignified”:

Two vocal features are associated with young women: vocal fry and uptalk. Uptalk, as the name suggests, is the rising intonation that makes statements sound like questions? And vocal fry – often said to be typical of Kim Kardashian, an American celebrity – happens at the ends of words and phrases when a speaker’s vocal chords relax, giving the voice a kind of creaky quality.

FROM: “The TV Tarts’ Reign of Terror.”

The Hilaria in the above clip is unfazed—she knows her audience all too well. As does her husband. In days of old, such fraud would have been met with ostracization, as in when the character of Glenn Close, from “Dangerous Liaisons,” was booed at the opera for her machinations.

In a culture built on Big Lies and saturated with phoniness—shunning doesn’t happen and neither does any meaningful expiation.

The liar just reconstitutes herself or himself afresh for the camera.

(Only with bigger, phonier eyebrows: What’s with the tattooed, “fat caterpillar” eyebrows on Mrs. Baldwin? I see a lot of women are inking their foreheads in place of eyebrows. Is that a “Spanish” thing, too?)

Some see this phenomenon as a Right/Left thing. Fake and foolish is worse on the Left, no doubt. But I don’t see it as Right/Left. Where are all the decent, cultured women and men around? Men and women with manners, proper etiquette; who’re able to correspond, relate adaptively in a fun way; speak and think coherently, read? With few exceptions, I see horrid manners and boorish mannerisms pervading among the Left and the Right, in men and women alike.
