Even some liberals can’t take the liberal hysteria anymore

British liberal Piers Morgan who disagrees with Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration is defending Trump.  He’s also putting Rowling in her place.

Dave Rubin who considers himself liberal leaves the Left.

Gay Journalist, who dared to write an objective piece on the much-hated Milo, is ostracized by his own.  He has his eyes opened to what they’re really like and starts re-thinking his position.  (Smart move, guys.)

Feminists: Down with female objectification (unless we’re objectifying ourselves)!

More proof (as though we need it) that the women of this country are seriously confused, at least the most vocal elements are.  The early women’s rights movement may have made sense, but ceased to do so a long time ago.  Just like the leftists, feminists have no consistency in what they preach and protest about, and apparently no ability to think with anything resembling logic and reason.  If they did, the “Women’s March” on DC would have seemed ridiculous.

And the celebrities and pop culture many of these women embrace would be seen as derogatory towards women.  They simultaneously condemn and celebrate two sides of one coin.  They shout to the world, especially men, “don’t objectify us, don’t define us by our body parts” while at the same time presenting themselves as sex objects and defining themselves by their body parts (except when “tolerance” insists that they accept “trans-women” — and not very convincing cross-dressers like Stephen Crowder!).

Victoria Cobb of the Family Foundation made these observations on the so-called “Women’s March:”

The thing about vulgarity is that for most people, the novelty wears off when we grow up.  The use of these words proves nothing except possibly that we lack the creativity and class to have conversations of substance and meaning.

I fear that much the same principle applied to those that attended the misnamed “March for Women.”  Given everyone appeared to be angry for different reasons and the march itself had no centralized purpose, it left a void that vulgarity filled.  Sign after sign used words and images that should make us cringe.   Rather than symbolizing some liberation of women, it should embarrass us.  Does it represent our gender to be unable to express our specific, legitimate concerns with this administration with civility?  I get that our new President hasn’t exactly set a high bar in this arena.  I just find it odd that those that dislike him so much gladly follow him into the gutter.

Rather than organizing an anti-Trump rally, organizers tried to make it the summation of what it is to be a woman.  The only problem with that plan is that in today’s gender-confused society, it’s very hard to describe what it is that makes one a woman.  If visuals in D.C. yesterday are any explanation, womanhood comes down to the existence of a uterus and the ability to kill the next generation of girls.  This left the march with conflicting messages because on the one hand, it is the uterus that defines “womanhood,” but on the other hand, even a uterus doesn’t guarantee your exclusive stake on a women’s locker room or shower room.

An even more recent example of their inconsistency: Women who protest female objectification and decry “rape culture” singing praises for the domination of women, glorification of rape and domestic abuse of women in films like 50 Shades Darker.  Mary Ann Kreitzer and Jamie Fuller tell us why “Love is Not Grey ” and why they “Won’t be Seeing Fifty Shades Darker and No Real Feminist Would”:

Tell us again, girls, how crude and misogynistic Donald Trump is as you slobber over the sick messages of these male domination/rape films? …  Haven’t we been there in the past? I thought we’d advanced from the all-women-are-sluts-who-really-want-to-be-raped era. Guess I was wrong. On the other hand, is it possible that liberal women like those at the Women’s March agree with the message? They were certainly lewd and crude and…well… slutty at the March.

I won’t be going to see the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie and here’s why. We as women have spent the last 50+ years fighting to be seen as more than sex objects. We have demanded equality to men in the work place. We’ve fought to have our partners stand by our side at home and pitch in around the house. We’ve dug ourselves out from this idea that women should be the sole caretakers of our children. We want to be equal to men in all ways (well not me- we aren’t equal- women fill the gaps that men can’t and vice versa – but that’s a whole different discussion).

Why, then, are women clambering to see Fifty Shades Darker? What does that say when we promote a movie that not only objectifies women, but creates this idea that every woman fantasizes about being dominated?
***
Before you rush out to see Fifty Shades Darker this Valentine’s Day, consider this: we as a country were outraged at the idea of a presidential candidate making crass and inappropriate comments about women. We as a country (well some of us anyway) supported a march on the capital protesting rape and domestic violence on women. We as a country have fought for women to be on the same level as men in the work place, in society, and at home. Why, then, would any of us want to see a movie that does nothing more than demote women to sex objects and elevate men into a place of dominance over us?

Don’t forget ladies: if the fictional Christian Grey assaults a young woman in highly demeaning ways, that’s cool, but if Donald Trump is caught on tape more than a decade ago making a demeaning comment about women, that calls for months (years?) of outrage and condemnation.  The best way to combat “jerks like Trump?”  Definitely go see 50 Shades Darker and be vulgar and slutty in public.  Yep, that will definitely put a stop to men viewing women as worthless except as sex objects.

TMZ: Shia LaBeouf’s ‘HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US’ PROTEST CLOSED Due to Potential Violence

The Museum of the Moving Image in NYC says it turned off the cam mounted on one of its walls because it had become a “flashpoint for violence.” Shia was arrested on January 25 when he allegedly got physical with a protester who showed up to oppose the movement.

There had been other physical altercations where no one was arrested — with and without Shia — and NYPD started patrolling the spot regularly.

Oh, come on, this was so much fun.  Somebody else needs to put up another 24/7 webcam just so we can observe shitposters in the wild.

What do you call a “conspiracy theory” when it starts to look like the truth?

Several years ago I might have thought this seemed far-fetched, but it’s hard to ignore the mounting evidence.  Steve Jalsevac outlines the “surprising real reason for the hate against Donald Trump,” tying many entities and movements together as a concerted effort to destroy what’s left of Western Civilization and Christianity.  Is he right?  What do you think?

Can Trump and his administration endure this near satanic, on-going assault? Many prayed for him during the election and he astonishingly prevailed. It is clear, despite the president’s personal flaws, that he is doing many right things. He would not be so intensely hated by all these people if he were not.

Even more prayers are needed to protect, guide and inspire Trump and his administration to stay the course and serve the Will of God. Prayers are needed for his continued conversion – especially on the homosexual/transgender rights issues.

There is also great need to pray for the physical safety of President Trump and his leadership team.

The election of Donald Trump has caused the decades-old war that has been waged on what is left of Christian civilization to be suddenly revealed for the ugly and evil war that it has been all along. Until now the war has been very one-sided, with the one-world progressives generally being the only ones fighting, as the relatively passive Christians and their non-Christian allies have given naive, timid and disorganized resistance.

The election of Donald Trump has suddenly brought everything into the open that was already underway. It has forced a necessary climax in this world-wide culture war.

This is good. But the “good” must now respond by finally starting to earnestly wage a defensive war to completely defeat the one-worlders. It is time to wake up to the reality of our collective and individual responsibilities in this international conflict between good and evil.

It is not possible to overstate the gravity of the situation.

Keep in mind that in 1976 (showing how long this has been on-going) Pope John Paul II, as then Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, warned,

“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the Antichrist.”
Donald Trump did not start the conflict. He has merely brought it all out into the open for us to respond to.

Immigration Might Not Be the Answer

To all those people crying about how the only way to show Christian love for refugees is to open our borders and let them flow in unimpeded, maybe you should stop judging those who disagree  and take a look at the facts? Take a look at how little even the most liberal immigration policy affects the world’s poor and suffering.

Refusing to look at the facts does not make one compassionate, and neglecting to weigh the risks does not make one brave. If you think truly demonstrating love for our neighbor requires ignoring the truth, then you forget that not only is God LOVE, but He is also the TRUTH. The best way to help those in need is to accurately assess the situation and use your reason to find the most effective way to help the most people. Rushing in blindly because it makes you feel like you’re doing good, isn’t helpful; it’s stupid.

You know the scene in movies and books, where some well-meaning fool rushes into danger to save others and is immediately killed, thus saving no one and only wasting his own life? He’s not the hero of the story is he? The hero is the guy who pauses and assesses the situation, even if that means bad things keep happening while he gets his bearings and he seems cold and uncaring for a time, but then goes on to save the world. Sometimes the hero even ends up sacrificing his life to achieve this end, but not in a stupid, meaningless, and ineffective way.

Actually, this is beginning to sound a bit like God. Why didn’t He rush in to fix everything right after Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden? Or at least soon afterwards?  But the He didn’t. He left his people wandering for years, sometimes in slavery, in sin, in darkness. He waited until just the right moment to sweep in and save His people by sacrificing Himself for their sake. Maybe everyone quoting the Bible to support their political views on immigration should take a closer look.

“Immigration can never be an effective or significant way to deal with the suffering people of the world. They have to be helped where they live… Let’s help them there”

Mom is not going to save you from the internet demons

Yesterday:  Shia LaBeouf is back speaking against Trump after attacking fellow protester live on camera – but now has his mom and wife by his side for support

The actor walked hand-in-hand with his mother, Shayne Saide, from his hotel to the outdoor camera in Queens, New York, where he is carrying out his ‘He will not divide us’ protest.

But he declined to speak to DailyMail.com, instead launching into a series of f-words.

Mister Metokur offers a summary of the events leading up to Shia’s arrest.  (Language warning obviously; if you watch this while eating anything, it’s not my fault if you choke to death.)

The kid screeching REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE is THE BEST.

Shia really should have stuck to his retirement after the plagiarism scandal back in 2013.  In case you hadn’t heard about that one:

  • He made a comic book into film without obtaining the rights
  • When caught, he plagiarized an apology
  • Offered another apology via skywriting
  • Claimed to be retiring because of “attacks against my artistic integrity”

Time has more examples of Shia’s fruitcakery.  Clearly the retirement didn’t stick but his mental health hasn’t improved one bit.

Edit:  This just doesn’t get old. The full version of the “neo-nazi” kid is interesting.

Is this timeline not the best or what?
