“The same people who last week were screeching about the government having concentration camps now want me to give my AR15s to that same government.
“The same people who last month were hyperventilating about the government slaughtering black people now expect me to surrender my guns to that same government.
“The same people who last year were setting stuff on fire and yipping about the government rounding up the gays and Muslims for liquidation now think it’s a good idea for me to just hand over my rifles to that same government.
“You chuckleheads need to make up your damned minds.”
I would have used a more graphic term than “chuckleheads”, but other than that, he’s quite right.
This from Jazz Shaw, talking about the recent spate of attacks on ICE offices:
The thing is, you can’t have it both ways. If you’re going to blame Donald Trump’s rhetoric on immigration for shootings targeting minorities, you can’t simply turn around and ignore this. We have Democratic presidential candidates, “squad” activists, cable news anchors and editorials from major newspapers constantly demonizing ICE, calling for it to be abolished and blaming all manner of human misery on immigration enforcement offices who are simply upholding the law.
How can you observe all of this in context and not blame their rhetoric for the fact that people are shooting up or trying to bomb ICE offices and last night came within inches of murdering someone? The answer is that you can’t, at least if you want to label yourself as an unbiased observer of events.
He’s quite right, of course, albeit woefully naïve. As Glenn Reynolds so often notes, if the media didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all.
From Glenn Reynolds, commenting on this nonsense:
If I were a young single guy, I’d be inclined to bank a bunch of sperm, then get a vasectomy. For men, that’s pretty much the only way to achieve “reproductive rights.”
From the inimitable Joe Bob Briggs, trying to explain the LGBTOSTFU phenomenon:
I have a friend who defines herself as trans—actually I should say hirself, not herself, but I’m not exactly sure why—a friend who defines hirself as trans but also lesbian, therefore a biological male who presents as female and dates females and has relationships with females. So a lesbian with a penis, which, if you think about it, is a penis that becomes, in this situation, basically a built-in sex toy—but then again, let’s not go to places known only to the two LGBTQ lovebirds.
If your head is spinning after reading that, then don’t even try to read the rest of his article. Great Caesar’s bleeding hemorrhoids, the world is getting more fucked up by the day. (And don’t try to suggest where the world is getting fucked either, you cisgender heterofascist.)
Part II from The Diplomad:
“As I noted a long time ago, [Lefties] change the meanings of words, so that the most basic units of thought and expression no longer mean what we once thought they did. We can’t even use good old-fashion pronouns. As per Orwell, they rewrite the dictionary, they make us hesitate when we think and speak, we must not give “offense” or reveal ourselves as “racist, homophobic, misogynistic” throw backs to a dark era. They use fake bought and paid for “science” to convince us to give up our standard of living, to question whether labels such as “male” and “female” have any meaning. They tear down flags, statues, and monuments; they want place names changed to erase our history. They deliberately blur the distinction between citizen and non-citizen, between legal and illegal residents in our country. They want open borders; they, in sum, want a destruction of this country, and of Western civilization.”
Yeah, well that only works on the pussies. I don’t think twice about “causing offence” before I write or say anything — and if I do, 90% of the time I say it anyway precisely because it does cause offence.
And yeah: their long game is the destruction of Western civilization. ‘Twas ever thus, since Marx.
Which reminds me: I need to buy some more ammo.
