L’etat c’est nous

New Class Traitor has a post over at Spin, Strangeness, and Charm about what Putin and the woke Brahmandarins have in common.

They are both looking to set up neo-feudal systems with themselves at the top, with a willing clerisy as enforcers looking to ‘cancel’ anyone who isn’t down with the program.

Both greatly benefit the feudal lieges at the top (cf. Orwell’s “Inner Party”), somewhat benefit those staffing the clerisy and enforcement apparatus (cf. Orwell’s Outer Party), and fornicate over the vast majority of their “Proles” — aside from this or that mascot group that is temporarily useful to their regimes.

And since neither is able to substantially and durably deliver the goods to the Proles (except the illusion thereof, in the alleged fashion of Prince Gregory Potemkin), the one thing both have to do to legitimize their rule is find some “fascist” or “Nazi” monster that they are supposedly fighting.

Read the whole thing.

Brexit, Trump, Orban, and Meloni, aren’t fascist-inspired or neofascists. They’re the result of what happens when the proles begin to understand how The System has been rigged. This November, the proles may not let the wokies win.

Statistics v. Natural Selection

There’s a post over at statistica about the percentage of U.S. adults who identify as LGBT. It shows that the incidence of LGBT identification has increased from generation to generation.

The sexual practices of at least the LG portion are sterile—that is, they can’t result in a child being conceived. So if LG people are born that way, it is likely the result of one or more recessive genes which will not be passed along as a result of same sex relationships. So where is this increased LGBT identification coming from?

Hmmmm.

Time and Grammar

Time has published a piece about a woke artist and posted this tweet to promote the article.The tweet appears to have been written in English. If so, the wrong words have been used for third person pronouns.

Of course, Time‘s current ungoodthinkfull confusion about pronouns will be resolved as the company completes the transition to Newspeak.

The only classes of words that were still allowed to inflect irregularly were the pronouns, the relatives, the demonstrative adjectives, and the auxiliary verbs. All of these followed their ancient usage, except that WHOM had been scrapped as unnecessary, and the SHALL, SHOULD tenses had been dropped …

Bullies

Fuzzy Slippers has a post over at Legal Insurrection headlined Trans Activists Shout Down 80-year-old Woman Who Spoke Out Against Biological Male In Women’s Changing Room. “Julie Jaman was banned from Port Townsend’s Mountain View Pool after complaining about a biological male ogling young girls in the changing room. Jaman was showering when she saw the man staring at little girls undressing. She said that she felt her and the children’s safety was threatened. When she later tried to give a speech about the incident, she was heckled. Trans activists ripped down the suffragette flags behind her and tried to sabotage her microphone.

I’m so old I remember when men who picked on women were considered bullies, and it may be that incidents such as this are beginning to remind others. The appearance of the #LGBDropTheT could be a sign that a sufficiently broad swath of the public have had enough and that women will have their safe space protected again.

One can hope.

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

The Daily Mail reports a child sex abuse center at Johns Hopkins University has hired a trans professor, who was forced to resign from Virginia school for defending pedophiles as “minor attracted persons.” Allyn Walker will start work as a postdoctoral fellow for the school later this month at a center aimed at preventing child sexual abuse.

Forget it, Gentle Reader. It’s Baltimore.

Quote of the Day

No government has the right to decide on the truth of scientific principles, nor to prescribe in any way the character of the questions investigated. Neither may a government determine the aesthetic value of artistic creations, nor limit the forms of literacy or artistic expression. Nor should it pronounce on the validity of economic, historic, religious, or philosophical doctrines. Instead it has a duty to its citizens to maintain the freedom, to let those citizens contribute to the further adventure and the development of the human race.

—Richard Feynman

Women of the Year

I don’t find it the least bit ironic during Women’s History Month that a man (Rachel Levine) has been named Woman of the Year by USA Today or that a man (Lia Thomas) has beaten a woman olympic medalist at an NCAA swim meet.

Irony stems from a disconnect between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result. We’re getting what we (allegedly) voted for. What should we expect when, for example, we allow cowardly men to bully women at sporting events?

This is disgusting but not ironic.

A Return to Normalcy

That was Harding’s successful campaign slogan in 1920. He was running in a country turned upside-down by the Wilson’s wartime proto-Fascist government. Wilson, who was no friend of the Constitution, had stuck the government’s nose into too many corners of American life, and the people pushed back against his overreach.

I’ve been writing about the overreach the Democrats have been engaging in since the 2020 election. They’ve sought to impose abnormality on the public, and the public is starting to push back. And the trigger seems to have been what is happening to kids while they are in school.

Forced cosmetic masking and coverups of crimes against students were issues that swayed the election in Virginia last year. Racist propaganda in the form of so-called Critical Race Theory, inappropriate sexual topics in kindergarten, and hidden efforts to promote and enable “gender” transitions have sent parent lobbying at state legislatures this year.

For the most part, it seems their pushback is winning. Several states have outlawed teaching racism. This week, Florida passed a ban on inappropriate class related to sexuality.

Of course, the media and the Democrats (BIRM) are howling, and it looks as if many of them are willing to go into this November’s elections without letting go of their overreach.

Meanwhile, the public is beginning to notice that inflation is at its highest in over 40 years, that the world is tending toward WW3, and that they can’t afford to buy $55k EVs. Things are about to get uglier.

Stay tuned.

First Virginia, Now This

Shortly after Joe Xiden took office, I suggested that we were in for a couple of years of overreach by the Left—and that they would wind up going a bridge too far. It looks as if schools have been the flash point for a rebellion by normal people.

The rest of 2022 will be … um … interesting.

DO Know Much About the French I Took

Matt Margolis has a post over at PJ Media about the results of a Rasmussen survey that shows that 75% of Americans believe that there are only two genders. Well, if they’re French speakers, they’re correct. If they are English speakers, they are wrong.

In the English language there are four genders: masculine/he, feminine/she, neuter/it, and indefinite/he (informal)/one (formal). In English, gender follows biological sex for animate beings.

There are only two sexes, and sex is not the same thing as gender—not even in the Eleventh Edition of the Newspeak Dictionary.
