Fighting Wokedom

Here’s the story of the film so far.  (Have the barf bag ready, because it involves some fairly horrible characters.)

  • Duchess Caringslut appears on Oprah and says a whole bunch of ugly stuff about the British Royal Family (I know, I know, who cares, but stay with me for a moment).
  • Gasbag TV host Piers Morgan (a.k.a. the Worst Living Englishman) calls Caringslut out and says he doesn’t believe a word she said.
  • Morgan loses his job on TV breakfast show (quit, fired, whatever).
  • On some other crappy TV show, Ozzy’s wife Sharon (as though she doesn’t have enough problems) stands up for Morgan’s right to bloviate.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

Morgan got in trouble not because of his skepticism, but because he dared to say it about a (semi-) Person Of Color, i.e. Caringslut, who is also A Womyn and is therefore privileged because #BelieveAllWomen #BlackLivesMatter #EndRacismNow.  So by standing up for Morgan’s right to cast doubt upon Her Sainted Narrative, Sharon is threatened with termination from her (clearly lucrative) job on the stupid TV show in which she appears.

That’s the background.  Now for the fun part.

Sharon Osbourne is one of the toughest women in the world — I mean, married to Ozzy The Prince Of Darkness for four decades, Q.E.D.  So threatening Sharon’s livelihood is like poking a black mamba with a short stick:  fraught with peril for not much gain.

So what does Sharon do?  This:

Sharon Osbourne retains powerhouse LA law firm Eisner as she ‘demands millions’ to leave The Talk amid dispute over her defense of Piers Morgan

What she has done is put a price on wokedom — because at the end of it all, this is what the whole thing is about — and has shown that the best way to combat this bullshit is to make it really expensive to indulge in it.

Ditto, by the way, for state legislatures to withhold funding from public universities who trample all over their students’ civil rights just for being conservative, for example.

But the Caringslut / Piers Morgan / Sharon Osbourne thing is a lot more entertaining.  Even if they are all just a bunch of loathsome media assholes.

Postscript:  As it happens, Duchess Caringslut did tell at least one (so far) palpable lie to Oprah:  she claimed that she’d married Prince Ginger No-Nuts a few days before the actual Royal Wedding, when that wasn’t the case at all.  So on the principle that even a blind pig can find the occasional truffle, Piers Morgan was at least partially correct in his disbelief.  The first time he’s been right about anything in years.


  1. I love to watch these rotten leeches suck the blood out of each others necks. But really, I wish they all were dead.

  2. Jobs like that are usually written up as binding contracts for both sides, and canceling contracts “for cause” require proof of said cause. Presumably “hurt my feelings” and “wokeness” are not causes spelled out in the contract, thus they are required to pay out the contract (pay the person to NOT work). Failure to show cause for cancelation or pay up begets lawsuits for breach of contract.

  3. Gotta give you credit. Or maybe myself credit, if not a medal, for heroically fighting through the virulent strain of MEGO that afflicts me whenever the inbred royals are mentioned. Kudos to the Heroin Den Mother of the Century for taking on the wokescolds. She has more spine than the Republican party.

  4. Other than the monetary incentives driving the social issues you mention, they can all go coronate themselves, for all I care.

  5. I don’t get why the queen puts up with any of this.

    If that were my kid, and I’ve done similar, I’d say “Want to be an American? God Bless ya…I’m not paying for it though. So good luck”

    Cut them the F off.

  6. I love the nicknames!!! They’re very appropriate.

    It’s only with very passing interest that I follow anything the Royal Family does. I like the pomp and circumstance but take away the money and they read like some trailer park police reports or Jerry Springer episodes.

    TechieDude, you’re right. Kick them out and cut them off.

    Polack, you’re right about the Heroin Den Mother. Another great nickname. I wish the GOP would grow a spine and a pair of testicles that produce some testosterone. The GOP is severely lacking.


  7. Sharon ‘s dad Don Arden was one of the biggest gangsters in show business. She’s not going to roll over.

  8. I am sure the Queen sometimes laments that it’s not the 15th century and she can’t lop off a head or two.

  9. Sharon and Piers go back to working on AGT in 2007 and also on Celebrity Apprentice so no surprise that she defended Morgan.

    ….. and also no surprise that the inbred Germans that hold the Crown are Flaming Racists.

  10. At least Edward had the decency to retire quietly. Who’d want Harry as Governor-General now?

    1. Instead of the Bahamas, maybe they’ll send him to Tristan Da Cunha. If they’re too obnoxious there, there are a couple of uninhabited islands nearby they could be banished to if they aggravate the subjects to an act of independence.

  11. How long after QE2 passes will it take before the Brits are driven to revive the old custom of shortening royalty by a head?
