A Small Example of Liberal BS

Just weighing in here for a second while this is still fresh. This is just a small example of liberal media BS, but so easily exposed.

Via Vox Day I found this Hollywood Reporter piece. It quotes Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, as saying he doubts the company would continue to shoot movies in Georgia if the restrictions on abortion in the state are implemented, because too many Disney employees would be opposed to it.

(By the way, this is absolutely remarkable public image management for Disney, of all corporations: As a pro-abortion company. Seriously, Iger?)

Hollywood Reporter then says:

“Disney’s prospective withdrawal from production in Georgia would be a huge blow to the state. Recently, Disney’s Marvel Studios filmed portions of both Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame in Georgia.”

How does this belch of threat display stand up against actual fact?

Short version: I checked, and the entire budget of End Game – making no attempt to sound out how much of it actually ended up in Georgia’s economy – amounts to a tiny fraction of one percentage point of Georgia’s economy. How tiny? Only 6/100 of one percent!

In technical terms, quantities this small are called: LOL.

Not only is it not going to be “a huge blow to the state,” it wouldn’t even be noticed.

Details with data sources below.

What the left is trying to do on this matter – not just in this little article – is simply threaten, to puff themselves up like an animal confronted by a predator and hope that the bluff works.

Another way of putting it: This is trying to apply Alinsky’s dictum “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.” So again: Bluff.

How I exposed the BS (it wasn’t hard to do):

1. According to the file handily provided by the Commerce Department at https://www.bea.gov/data/gdp/gdp-state, Georgia’s state GDP in 2018 was 2.9% of US GDP.

2. Per the Federal Reserve System, https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/FYGDP, U.S. GDP in 2018, as of the most current estimate, was $20.24 trillion. That times 0.029 = $587 billion.

3. Per Google, End Game’s total budget was $356 million. Obviously they didn’t spend all of that in Georgia, but let’s suppose they did, just for fun. Then the fraction of Georgia’s GDP that amounted to was

356 mill/587 bill = 0.0006.

That is, about 6 hundredths of one percentage point.

And that’s if the movie’s entire budget was spent in Georgia! How much was actually spent there? Who knows, but a big chunk of the budget is certainly salaries for Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., etc. One piece of scuttlebutt puts Downey’s earnings for the film at $75 million. Those paychecks go to the actors, not the citizens of the state.

Does the “reporter” who wrote this know that it’s false? Well, either he does, and wrote it anyway, or at the very least he wrote it with an absolute lack of concern for whether it’s true or false. If he cared he would have checked first.

It really is remarkable how shameless and unhesitant liberal reporters are to just make stuff up with no concern for its truth.

So often their bluffs rely on most readers being to busy or too trusting or whatever to check them. But sometimes it only takes a little checking to kick the crap out of their sad little narratives.

“Bourgeois”

The Left is the Party of the Lie. This is because their desires are so evil and insane that they cannot survive discourse in which truth prevails, or is even a reasonably prominent element. One kind of lie they like is to change the meaning of words, to corrupt language so that it is harder to think non-leftist thoughts. On that subject…

The word “bourgeois” comes from a root word that means city-dwellers. It derives from the same root as borough, burg, berg, etc. Marx, being an asshole, deliberately confused things when he used the word in a new way, to mean, basically, “capitalists.” What it really meant until then— and still means subtextually as neo-Marxists use it— is normal people.

Even left-slanted Wikipedia admits that “bourgeoisie,” aside from its original meaning of city-dweller, denotes

a sociologically defined class, especially in contemporary times, referring to people with a certain cultural and financial capital belonging to the middle or upper middle class: the upper (haute), middle (moyenne), and petty (petite) bourgeoisie (which are collectively designated “the bourgeoisie”); an affluent and often opulent stratum of the middle class.

During the centuries in Europe before Marx was born, which centuries were the focus of much of Marx’s “history,” there were two main groups of normal people: Peasants and city dwellers. (In medieval Europe, peasants were about 85 percent of the population. Towns grew throughout the medieval period and eventually started to become cities.) Peasants were generally too poor to be worth expropriating, so parasites like Marxists weren’t much interested in them— although as history has shown, they’ll expropriate anyone in a pinch.

Plus, so many of the peasants were dispersed out in the boonies. There’d be so much travel per peasant expropriated, it would hardly be worth it.

But the bourgeois, now that was a different story. They were reasonably prosperous, those city-dwellers, and there were so many of them! And they were conveniently concentrated in metropolitan areas. There was some real stuff you could get your hands on. And all you had to do was assemble a mob and attack them. So simple! There wasn’t enough there to last the parasites very long, and certainly expropriation can’t be the basis of an economic system, but since when do parasites think about the long run?

One Marxist actually wrote a book called The Right to Be Lazy, which I imagine made the other Marxists hiss, “Dude, shut the fuck up, you’re exposing us!”

So, Marx thought, let’s come up with a theory that says that normal people are somehow attacking us, so that when we attack them it can be portrayed as merely the taking back of our own stuff which they stole from us. “The expropriators are expropriated,” he cheekily said.

Of course, you could also expropriate the nobility, and that was fine and dandy, but there simply weren’t enough such people to provide much loot. Not when their loot was distributed among a mob large enough to actually defeat them. So for Marxists’ main target: the great middle classes it was!


Later in the Wikipedia article on “bourgeoisie” we get:

In Marxist philosophy, the bourgeoisie is the social class that came to own the means of production during modern industrialization and whose societal concerns are the value of property and the preservation of capital to ensure the perpetuation of their economic supremacy in society.

Right: People don’t want to keep their stuff just because it’s…their stuff. They want to keep their stuff TO ENSURE THE PERPETUATION OF THEIR ECONOMIC SUPREMACY!

IN SOCIETY!

Uh-huh. I don’t like my Bose stereo because I like well-balanced, high-res music; I like it because I enjoy imagining all the poor proletarians shivering in the cold on the street outside, unable to afford high-fidelity audio reproduction.

Marxists are assholes. That’s all, just particularly violent assholes.

Red Pill in Fiction: This n That

(1) In Ocean’s Eleven (George Clooney version):

Danny: Does he make you laugh?
Tess: He doesn’t make me cry, Danny.

Oh, this is just pure pussy bait! (*) When they were together, he made her laugh and he made her cry. So two items here: One is, emotional roller coaster. Chick crack. The other is that he’s an asshole. We don’t know why he made her cry— I’m guessing by cheating on her— but it’s enough that he did. He’s no good! He doesn’t care for her! Her treats her badly! You can just see that one line setting off the Bad Boy Alert for the women in the audience, and having them leaving wet spots on their seats. Very deftly done: Two terse lines of dialogue. That’s all that the chicks in the audience need to get that there’s some sort of soap-opera-y relationship backstory.

* I was going to write “pussy crack,” but that would’ve pulled up the wrong mental image.

(2) Random red pill item: Actor Larry Hagman said he rarely got any female fan mail when he played a nice guy on I Dream of Genie, but got tons when he played the total bastard J.R. on Dallas.

(Those two characters were so different that I never even realized they were the same actor until I read that quote.)

(3) Neal Stephenson’s Quicksilver, a trilogy I strongly recommend if you like Stephenson. It’s the most “Neal Stephenson” of his works that I’ve read, i.e. stylistically dense but always intelligent and funny.

Page 374 et seq.: In 1683 a “vagabond”— that is, a roaming criminal adventurer— named Jack is wandering around in the chaos of the siege of Vienna. In a Turkish officer’s tent he happens upon a young English woman, Eliza; she’d been captured at sea as a child. After some back and forth:

“You talk like a girl who is in need of a spanking.”
“Books of India,” she said coolly, “have entire chapters about that.”

Jack prefers not to get bogged down with companions unless they can help out in a fight, but eventually agrees to let her travel with him. But he warns her:

“If we make it as far as Paris… and if you’ve given me so much as a blink of trouble—one cross look, one wifely crossing of the arms—cutting thespian-like asides, delivered to an imaginary audience—”
“Have you had many women, Jack?”
“—pretending to be shocked by what’s perfectly normal—calculated moods—slowness to get underway—murky complaints about female trouble—”
“Now that you mention it, Jack, this is my time of the month…”
“Not funny at all. Do I look amused?”

Stephenson provides a good list of some standard shit tests here.

And on page 389, on one-itis:

Eliza seemed impressed. Jack was gratified by this—a bad sign. No man was more comprehensively doomed than him whose chief source of gratification was making favorable impressions on some particular woman.

Later in their adventures Jack gets outrageously beta— like, after Eliza harpoons him to a mast (long story) and he is still in luuuuurv with her— so this is definitely not an unqualified endorsement of Stephenson on women. But he does display flashes of insight here and there.

(4) In Bruce Sterling’s Zeitgeist, some conversation among Leggy Starlitz, his daughter Zeta, and Viktor, a minor criminal. Starlitz is a gray-market hustler who’s always working some semi-legal scam. His daughter Zeta, 11, has been raised by her mother and her mother’s lesbian lover until a crisis forces them to hand Zeta over to Starlitz. She’s been with him about a week, as he drags her around on various pieces of semi-underworld business. In Istanbul one of Starlitz’s contacts is a young Russian man named Viktor. The three of them are at a cafe and Viktor steps away for a moment:

“Dad, is Viktor a nice guy?”

“No.”

“I knew that,” said Zeta triumphantly. “I just knew it. I mean, I get it about Viktor now. Viktor is the guy that Mom One and Mom Two never wanted me to meet. Right?”

“Right… He’s every mother’s nightmare.”

Gah! Bad move, Starlitz! Should have downplayed Viktor’s Bad Boy cred so that your daughter finds him boring. Don’t confirm the “dangerous bad boy” thing, for fuck’s sake! The correct response is something like, “He tries to be a criminal tough guy, but just can’t swing it. He’s always getting beaten up and outwitted by the real criminals.” Something like that.

Zeta put her elbows on the table. “Dad, can I tell you something? Viktor is just the coolest guy, Dad. Viktor Bilibin is just the coolest, dreamiest, gangster guy. He has such amazing eyes. They look like my pet snake’s.” (LOL.)

Starlitz considered this artless confession. At first glance this was a very alarming development, but she wasn’t his own child for nothing. “You don’t need Viktor,” Starlitz informed her…

Viktor rejoins them. He and Starlitz usually speak in Russian, which Zeta doesn’t know, but she has an uncanny ability to suss out the gist of their conversations. Viktor tells Starlitz in Russian,

“Mehmet Ozbey is dead.”

Starlitz laughed. “I saw Ozbey last night.”

Viktor went pale. “I know he’s dead. I had Ozbey hit,” he insisted. “Nobody could have survived that.”

“Dad,” Zeta said thoughfully, “did Viktor kill somebody?”

“No.”

“He thinks he killed somebody.”

“There’s a big difference.”

Viktor lifted his right hand with two fingers outstretched and his thumb as a revolver hammer. “I killed somebody,” he told her in English, his voice resonant and spooky. “He wanted to kill me, because I know too much. He put me on his hit list. So, I took revenge on him. I had him liquidated. Boom-boom-bang.”

“Wow,” Zeta marveled, eyes like saucers and goose bumps all over her arms. “That’s so corrupt!”

“It was the naked justice of the steets,” Viktor intoned.

“He’s full of it,” Starlitz said.

Much better response.

(5) This wouldn’t normally be categorized as fiction, but I don’t know where else to put it. I’m flipping through this book that my woman has from college: Women Mystics in Medieval Europe, edited by two chicks. I randomly open it to page 77 and start skimming. On page 78 we get this:

Tactile sensations play an important part in Beatrice’s visions: She feels God’s presence passing through her whole body; the Lord pierces her soul with the fire of His love, as with the point of a flamboyant sword, drawing her heart to His. The blood of Christ’s wounds flows into her soul.

As I’ve noted before, women are always being penetrated by men in female-authored material. Interestingly, this happens a lot more than male explorers thrust themselves forcefully into receptive virgin lands or whatever, in material written by men.

(Thus when this crazy bitch claimed that the desire to settle space is just men’s desire to grab the asteroid belt by the pussy or whatever, I think that, aside from garden-variety insanity, she was projecting.)

WordPress Bans Heartiste

If you have a Net presence, STREISAND the fuckers.

For those who might not know, Chateau Heartiste, originally Roissy in DC, was the major Game/red-pill blogger. In recent years he became more political, as befits someone who has seen through the poisonous lies of feminism.

And the many, many, other lies that are constantly spewed at us.

For WordPress to ban him is either a very bold or very desperate move by the left. It’s hard to tell sometimes.

In any case, they have their censorship. Let’s Streisand them and make sure they pay the maximum price for it.


UPDATE June 1, 2019: Heartiste’s archives can be accessed on the Internet Archive/Wayback Machine, and he’s currently at Gab at gab.com/heartiste.

One of the recent topics of discussion at his Gab account, of course, has been how to get new web hosting that will be censorship-resistant. And if the rest of the dissident right learns the lesson from this incident and we take steps to harden our Net presence, it will make us harder to stifle. This will be ever more important as we get closer to the 2020 election. The left was caught by surprise in 2016. They won’t be in 2020 and will pull out all the stops. That will include a leveling-up of the already significant censorship.

(6) Where did the name of this blog come from, anyway?

I’m not really sure. Aside from just thinking it was a cool word, and a possible band name (when I was younger), it may have been partly inspired by Anders Sandberg’s comment on his website, on his favorite metal:

“Mercury. Reflective, heavy, quick moving, poisons your brain.”

(5)

Both parties lie and have always lied, but lie for different reasons. Since Democrats represent the left, and the left is the group of the incompetent and undeserving clawing their way to power over their natural betters, they lie pathologically and universally about the world itself in a nonstop attempt to invert or subvert the natural order that would normally place them at the bottom.

—A commenter at Vox Popoli.

(4) A piece of unintentional comedy in the comments trail at aramblingcollective, April 2019:

“We need more self-build collectives, with a government land-fund and a development agency like the old Housing Corporation – but better. That would also require design guidelines to promote aesthetic diversity

These people are absolutely beyond satire.

(3) Razorfist a.k.a. rageaholic, is hilarious.

Here he is on early 20th century pulp comic hero Solomon Kane:

(Video link hat tip to John C. Wright.)

Razorfist sums up Kane as a “buckle-shoed badass,” a “sunken-eyed pallid Puritan fanatic in a felt slouch hat and form-fitting black Quaker garb, expertly wielding a rapier, a dagger, and a pair of fuckin’ flintlock pistols.” Kane is a kind of “supernatural bounty hunter,” but at least as often he goes up against foes whose supernatural nature is coated in a veneer of pseudo-scientific bafflegab.

Purely natural villains also abound, e.g. when Kane happens across a girl who has been killed, and hunts down the “Franco-Belgian fuckbags” (LOL) who did it.

SolKane1

I’d never heard of Solomon Kane before watching this Razorfist vid, but watching it instantly made me want to strap on a brace of pistols and some sort of blade weapon and stride about the world in a wide-brimmed hat, dispensing justice at sword-point. If it doesn’t inspire the same reaction in you, then check your pulse, because I think you might be dead.

“A damn fine movie” is Razorfist’s assessment of the 2009 Solomon Kane flick. But he’s pissed that it wasn’t released in the US until 2012, and condemns farming out the distribution to “a beret-bedecked gaggle of Euro-trash art fags,” LOL. (No hate to my European readers, bitches.)

SolKane2
Just another day at the office.

You have to watch Razorfist to believe him. He’s wonderfully profane, with a swear-to-non-swear ratio of about 600, which spills out of him because he’s just so fucking enthused, motherfuckers (see, now I’m doing it) about the character, the stories, and the pulps in general.

(2) Red pill in reality: I recently read this 2014 piece on asshole Feinstein because it appeared on Anon Conserv circa September 16, 2018:

What’s of interest is the red pill item in the last paragraph:

A serial killer “whose swagger and looks once garnered courtroom groupies, including one misguided female juror who fell in love with Richard yet voted to convict him.”

Fell in love with a serial killer. Jesus! Well, at least she voted to convict.

(1) In NBC “think piece,” raging feminist loon says space exploration is colonialist rape, etc.

(Via this guy.)

Actual title: The patriarchal race to colonize Mars is just another example of male entitlement

Photo caption: Houston, we have a problem. And it’s the patriarchy.

You really can’t tell any more whether this sort of thing is sincere or just the media organization trying to drum up hits by being as idiotic as possible.

Other quotes:

The desire to colonize — to have unquestioned, unchallenged and automatic access to something, to any type of body, and to use it at will — is a patriarchal one.

And

It is the same instinctual and cultural force that teaches men that everything — and everyone — in their line of vision is theirs for the taking. You know, just like walking up to a woman and grabbing her by the pussy.

If this doesn’t seem to make sense, just take another bong hit. Repeat as needed.

I’m more of a Dale Gribble kind of guy: “Earth First! Make Mars our bitch!”

Bonus: The Author Bio informs us that “Marcie Bianco is a writer and the Editorial and Communications Manager of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University.”

Of course she is.

Auto-Generated Wokeness!

Why waste time thinking up rhetoric to prove your wokeness and accuse people you dislike of thoughtcrime? Not only does thinking take time, it violates the entire spirit of social justice warriorhood.

Software to the rescue! The next time you’re getting your ass kicked by logic and facts, just use one of these convenient examples of PC rhetoric, randomly generated by the magic of computers!

The Gauss code is provided below as a public service. Here is a sample of its output:

Victims of Islamophobia are continually raped by frat boys.
Those whose experiences are denied have historically been devalued by heternormativity.
Homosexuals are hyper-offended by institutionalized sexism.
Wymyn are offended by institutionalized racism.
Lesbians are super-offended by fat-shaming. LOL, I’ll bet.
Those with alternative body types are continually raped by white men. They wish.
Transgendered persons are continually raped by those who deny their own privilege.
Victims of Islamophobia are silenced by institutionalized Islamophobia.
Victims of Islamophobia feel threatened by rape culture. Self-hating?
Homosexuals feel unsafe in the presence of frat boys. Believe me, homosexuals, you have nothing to worry about.
Lesbians are victims of genocide perpetrated by self-hatred caused by the broader culture.
People of color are hyper-offended by rape culture.
Homosexuals have historically been devalued by a culture that portrays heterosexuality as ‘normal’. This one actually “makes sense,” to the extent that any SJW rhetoric makes sense.
People of color are silenced by homophobia.
People whose voices have been silenced feel threatened by rape culture.
Transgendered persons are ultra-offended by fat-shaming.
Victims are continually raped by rape culture.
Those whose experiences are denied are triggered by self-hatred caused by the broader culture. This is a great all-purpose piece of SJW rhetoric. Just copy and paste into any comment thread involving identity politics of any sort!
Oppressed minorities are mega-offended by racists.
Victims of Islamophobia are mega-offended by heternormativity. Not really, no.
Victims feel unsafe in the presence of fat-shaming.
Transgendered persons are victims of genocide perpetrated by incursions into their safe spaces.
Wymyn are victims of genocide perpetrated by exclusionary rhetoric.
Homosexuals feel unsafe in the presence of racism.
People of color are super-offended by those who deny their own privilege.
Those with alternative body types are triggered by transphobes.
People whose voices have been silenced are continually raped by exclusionary rhetoric. Another all-purpose one.
Wymyn are ultra-offended by homophobia.

GAUSS CODE:

To use this you must have Gauss, obviously, and you must do a global find and replace to replace each “(lessthan)” with the mathematical symbol for less than. I couldn’t include that symbol here because the html will interpret it as an attempt to open an html tag.
