Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
The pagan vision quest contemporary progressivism is attempting to achieve marches on. Like Bernie Sanders daydreaming about Soviet May Day parades. Like dumpster-diving in the socialist paradise of Venezuela. Like the border invasion. This is a banana (republic), after all.
The latest stops on the crazy train include (all from just the last week):
*Captain Marvel star Brie Larson said “I do not need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work for him about ‘A Wrinkle in Time.’ It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what that film meant to women of color” at the very same time that casting Will Smith to play the father of Serena and Venus Williams was criticized because he isn’t dark-skinned enough.
*Actor Ian McKellen, aka Gandalf, said Kevin Spacey and Bryan Singer abused others because of the pressure of being “in the closet.”
*A school in Great Britain agreed to stop teaching Rainbow Jihad propaganda because – wait for it – hundreds of Muslims protested and pulled their kids out of school.
*The top aide of savior of the proletariat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is alleged to have funneled more than $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission. The companies may have been established for the very purpose of making the use of those political donations hard to follow. Oh, and she also called the black staffers or employees of Republicans “tokens.”
*BirthStrike, a group of people terrified that the earth is “collapsing” because of global warming, are following Ocasio-Cortez in her belief that having children is bad.
*Toledo voters granted Lake Erie the same legal rights as a person.
*Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts admitted because of identity politics she shouldn’t have been expected to not be used as a willing pawn for Jussie Smollett’s hoax.
Are these people fools? Yes.
Are these people easy to laugh at? Yes.
Are these people to be taken seriously? Sadly, the answer is, again, yes.
While they make for excellent clickbait, they’re the ones actually laughing all the way to the bank. They control pop culture, academia, the media, and the bureaucracy. Other than that, I’m saying there’s a chance. So while we’re “owning the libs,” they’re owning our cultural devolution. Hell, they even make us subsidize it. And when we do win elections, the unelected judges render those elections all but pointless. Because, of course, they must always be obeyed no matter what rotgut they conjure up from the bowels of their depraved minds.
Which is exactly why there will be a new batch of zany high jinks I look forward to writing about next week, too. That bait ain’t gonna click itself!
