Newly appointed progressive prophet Jimmy Kimmel said this week, “It just so happens that almost every talk show host is a liberal and that’s because it requires a level of intelligence.”
Want to test that theory? Is it true that being a progressive makes you smarter, as Kimmel claims? Fair enough. By their fruits you will know them.
So let’s look at their fruits.
*Comedian Sarah Silverman said during a telethon to support abortions — hosted by something called Lady Parts Justice — that a pro-life conscience law “would make her want to eat an aborted fetus.” Such a MENSA-level comment was made during a super smart game called “abortion charades,” which featured a woman wearing a vagina costume. Because apparently cannibalism is the new four-dimensional chess.
*MSNBC “reporter” Katy Tur made it condescendingly clear that “choice” is a theory you only get to use for killing babies, not having them. When an Ohio man attending a Trump event said he was going to use the $1,000 bonus he received as a result of the recent tax cuts to start a family, Tur pointed out that having a baby costs six times that much. Interesting, Katy. So are you complaining that the tax cuts weren’t big enough to help the victims in our midst? You are, after all, the kind of gal who just a few years ago believed there is a “war on women” because Sandra Fluke couldn’t afford 20 bucks for a box of Trojans.
*A North Carolina man and his biological daughter were arrested on incest charges after authorities learned they had a child together and lived as a “married” couple. In response, progressives everywhere shouted “love is love” and “don’t judge.” Oh wait, no they didn’t. Now, by what bigoted standard could they possibly be excluding this couple and their “truth” from their Rainbow Jihad? They kicked in the doors of marriage. They kicked in the doors of bathrooms. Consistency demands that they chop down the family tree, too.
*A man dressed as woman harassed a woman who was defending sexual assault victims, and the weird dude was awarded the win from the SJW cult. Actress Rose McGowan, who helped call out Harvey Weinstein, was speaking about her new book when a trans-splainer interrupted her and told her that wearing a dress when you have a penis is a much tougher cross to bear than being raped. Yes, before McGowan knew what hit her, she was given the “bake the cake” treatment. A feminist organization called “Them” said McGowan’s defense of herself against a dude in drag “reeks of trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF) ideology … [and it] backs up her critics’ claims that she is a transphobe.” Then a Seattle arts and lectures series announced that “In light of feedback from the Seattle community and concerning public behavior by Rose McGowan, Seattle Arts & Lectures has decided to cancel the event with her.” #MeToo, but only until intersectionality decides that you are no longer of any use to us.
*Skier Gus Kenworthy, one of the first two openly homosexual male athletes to represent the U.S. in the Winter Olympics, told Ellen DeGeneres that Vice President Mike Pence is a “bad fit” to lead the U.S. delegation to South Korea this week. That’s because, as we all know, insufferable narcissism was one of the founding ideals of the Olympic Games. So since Kenworthy’s worldview precludes even the vice president from attendance unless he agrees with Kenworthy, then presumably the skier will be monitoring all of his fellow athletes for their beliefs and outing them as unworthy of wearing the country’s colors if they are in error. You know, just like the North Korean delegation. Now that’s good company.
Everybody feel smarter now? No, after just a week’s worth of examples of progressivism’s freak show, full of double standards and cultural chaos, we’re a lot dumber. For when a wannabe such as Kimmel, who once had women put their mouths on his crotch for laughs, rises to the platform he currently occupies, all it means is that the Idiocracy lives.
