Events following Trump’s victory should remove all doubt that American elections—and perhaps American life more generally—are increasingly being feminized. Hissy fits, snarky gossip and claims of dog-whistle hate are now major political weapons and millions in the Democratic coalition—women, blacks, gays, the campus-based cupcake nation—are desperately seeking sanctuaries. It would be hard to exaggerate this transformation. Try to imagine old-fashioned pols, typically males, hugging and crying as their candidate went down to defeat. Would Chicago Mayor Richard J. Dailyget the vapors” and tearfully whine about a Republican in the White House and with his ward-heeler cronies retreat to a safe space with cuddly puppies, playdough, and coloring books to begin the process of healing? Clearly, if such a response occurred post Nixon’s 1968 victory, the Mayor’s career would be over. Not even the dutiful Democratic Blessed Sisters of the Poor in his own parish could respect such a girly man and would demand that “Hiz Honor” take it like a man, down a few stiff ones with “the boys,” stop complaining and get busy stealing the next election.

As the onward march of feminization transforms losing an election into a psychological trauma requiring therapy, what’s next”? Perhaps an officially organized post-election “healing” with a pseudo scientific name—Post-Election Defeat Traumatic Stress Disorder—so therapists can try to bill insurance companies for its treatment.

To summarize what “manly” politics entails, let me describe its sports equivalent—the spontaneous, 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 pick-up basketball game played in schoolyards and Y’s. The game rests on unspoken rules and has flourished across generations. Most importantly, it perfectly embodies a “manly” political style that is slowly becoming antiquated thanks to the feminization of society (though I suspect that women can, at least in principle, play this hard-nosed version of pick-up basketball though the rules may have to be modified to ban score keeping so “losers” do not feel bad about themselves).

Critical to this game are limits regarding permissible behavior and these constraints all rely on social trust, or at least good manners and deeply imbedded norms, since there are no referees or written rules to be enforced. Yes, the aim was to win, and there would also be a degree of fuzziness about allowable rough and tumble behavior, but under no circumstances were personal attacks permitted. Who wants a trash talker teammate who bad-mouths an opponent’s unconventional private life with “Yo mama” taunts? There’s a New York City basketball league for gays, and while I have not seen the games personally, I suspect that the rules are identical to all pick-up game rules. It’s a guy thing.

Alas, in today’s feminist inspired “the personal is the political” world the boundaries between the political and all else are fading. Everything is just an opportunity to hit back politically as if being a bitchy scold can reverse a democratic election. So, for example designer Sophie Theallet has announced she’s refusing to dress the next first lady, Melania Trump. In her words, “The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by.” Meanwhile, Vice-President–elect Mike Pence was booed by the cast and some audience members of the Broadway hit, Hamilton. One cast member lectured Pence—“We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”(But like a real man, Pence brushed off the harangue.) Can anybody recall the widely despised Richard Nixon attending a play and being lectured by a cast member about the Vietnam War?

Meanwhile, at least according to the NY Times people are cancelling Thanksgiving dinners or otherwise rearranging events so as to avoid Trump supporters. This included one couple who moved their wedding to Italy to escape having to socialize with relatives who voted for Trump. In another case an adult child asked her mother to stop talking politics to her grandchild when she heard her mother favorably discuss Trump’s views on immigration. The Forward, a Left leaning Jewish publication recently featured an article called “7 Rules for Surviving Thanksgiving with Your Trump Loving Relatives.” Oye!

Similarly banished from the pick-up game would be the chronic complainer, a player who knew (or claimed to know) every rule in the book and happily called violations that never seemed to bother any player—the three seconds rule, palming the ball, double dribbling among relatively minor infractions that would only be called by paid referees in a college or professional game. It was not that players were outside the law; rather, such calls, even if technically justified, would kill the game by taking the fun out of it. Nobody, save perhaps some future lawyers, wanted to waste five minutes debating the charge of goal-tending (putting one’s hand directly over the rim to influence the ball). Far worse was the sore loser—someone who refused to accept the outcome. Better yet, I’d love to see a 4-on-4 game pitting Washington Post columnists versus those from the NY Times cheered on by their respective colleagues from the fashion and food sections.

ORDER IT NOW

Of the utmost importance was the norm of game over when it was over and everything, including the rough play was to be forgotten (the possible exception would be those who intentionally risked serious harms by, for example, purposely tripping an opponent). Nor would gloating by winners be tolerated—all would agree that it was “a good game” and that’s that and woe to those who insisted that the losers were on the wrong side of history. Among older participants the game’s end often meant going out for a few beers and, no doubt, after a few librations, nobody would recall past elbowing let alone the score. Think the recent kiss and make-up meeting of Trump and Romney. After all, in the world of pick-up games, as in old-fashioned guy dominated politics, today’s opponent might be tomorrow’s teammate and who wants a basketball game to spark a vendetta?

To appreciate how this “guy” style of political conflict is becoming undone, keep in mind that the Trump victory was absolutely unambiguous compared to countless other presidential election outcomes. Recall the election of 1828 when the House chose John Quincy Adams over Andrew Jackson despite the former having fewer popular and Electoral votes, the 1860 election of Lincoln who won a mere 39.9% of the popular vote in a four-way contest, the bizarre Rutherford B. Hayes win over Samuel Tilden in 1876 in which Tilden won the popular vote and fell a single vote short in the Electoral College but lost thanks to Republican skullduggery or Kennedy’s 1960 razor thin victory over Nixon as a result of a last minute flood of questionable Chicago votes and so on and on.

Yes, many were upset, but when it was over, it was over. The slogan was “wait to next year,” not “the resistance must continue.” Losers “took it like a man” and looked to the future. Nobody marched or rioted in the hope changing the outcome. Nor were there calls for the Electors to violate voter instructions to put into office a candidate that did not win a Electoral College majority.

We now live in an era of the permanent campaign—the day after the election aspirants for office begin plotting their run for office. It may grow even worse as losers refuse to let go, keep moaning and groaning about their grief all the while wishing for a miracle that can reverse the outcome (e.g., a Russian backed hack of voting machines) or pressuring the winner to adopt the loser’s policies so as “to heal” the wounds suffered by Hillary voters. In other words, in our feminized New World Order, everybody will win, nobody will feel bad and we’ll all get plaques commemorating our participation.

In the meantime, before it is too late, let me suggest that the Donald invite Hillary out for beer and pizza at an Irish gin mill where they get soused and bond by trading X-rated bimbo stories. Great post-game therapy and I personally guarantee that all will be forgiven.

    Silver lining: Resentful, fear-driven feminism is mostly a white girl thing (throw in a few urban Indians and Asians). Therefore America’s diversity prevents it from degenerating to Sweden levels of feminism.

    White fathers should instill more respect for authority and elders in their daughters. The world is hierarchical and individualism isn’t that important. Tell them “No” at least often as you would a boy, or they grow up thinking their feelings are seriously political issues. You notice traditional immigrants and even black Americans who would not dare call their parents by their first name, but hippy ass white liberals think its a great thing. Shit like that is why only 53% of white women voted for Trump.

    No Mr. Weissberg, A great majority of Americans and Westerners love women as long as they come in bikinis.

    Without bikini, women have always been discriminated in the Judo-Christian world – religiously, morally, sexually, socially and politically. Canada gave women rights to vote in 1939 while they received the same privilege in late 17 the century.

    United States, France and several other so-called “democratic and civilized” nations have still to elect a woman as head of government. In contrast, Muslim countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey, and Indonesia have elected women as head of governments.

    One of world’s worse country for women is Israel where women are treated as 3rd-class citizen in eight fields….

    It is the feminization of America, actions with no consequences.

    That is why Zionist Washington hates Trump so, he represents a push back against the hapless American male meme.

    I could write a book on the subject but suffice it to say, the Zionists through Hollywood, media and entertainment have emasculated American men, took away their voice, Trump is giving it back to them.

  10. Great takedown of these control freak whiny wimps who are bitching and moaning, and who will no doubt continue to bitch and moan over the next 4+ years, over Trump’s victory! Especially loved the last paragraph — Can you imagine the Donald and Hillary trading x-rated bimbo stories over beer and pizza? Tears of laughter streaming down my face. Hilarious!

  11. The most important part of this column is “The game rests on unspoken rules and has flourished across generations” and “Critical to this game are limits regarding permissible behavior and these constraints all rely on social trust, or at least good manners and deeply imbedded norms, since there are no referees or written rules to be enforced.”.

    Feminists decry our established system of “deeply imbedded norms” as the “old boy’s network”. Certain late 19th and early 20th century immigrants from Germany and Eastern Europe have never accepted these “unspoken rules” or “limits regarding permissible behavior” as legitimate. For both these groups, anything goes–and all the more so if it undermines and erodes the power that sustains the system they hate. Having little in common, their hatred sustains and unites them in a common cause.

    They don’t want to understand the rules, they want to destroy the game. The ultimate plan is to outlaw it and the first step is to demonize it. Since anything goes, any fabrication about Trump is permissible as long as it serves the cause. The end justifies the means. There are no rules, there is no “Truth”. “Everything is relative” gives them the latitude within which they can violate any taboo while basking the warm glow of their self perceived tolerance and open-mindedness. They’re not interested in sitting down with Trump and tipping a few. They need their rancor, they nurse it; it’s what sustains them.

    Saying Trump is like Hitler is tantamount to saying that he should be assassinated. After all, we are told that Hitler should have been killed, even as a baby in the crib.

    Most Americans believe it would have been justified to kill Hitler in 33.

    And American silence about the deaths of Hussein and Gaddafi suggest that they believe ‘tyrants’ deserve to be killed, even lynched.

    So, if the media say Trump is Hitler, they are giving the go-ahead for the killing of Trump.

    If some deranged nut kills Trump, will the media take responsibility?

    Or will they spin it somehow to imply that Trump brought it on himself?

    The media are playing with fire, esp when so many SJW types are clearly mentally unbalanced.

    Also, we saw how the BLM lunacy led to the murder of cops in various states.

    And we saw how Saudi funding of Jihadis(SJW’s of Islam) led to hell on earth in parts of Syria and Iraq.

    Media are pouring gas on the fire.

    If Trump gets killed, a lot of people will say Jewish Media’s spread of anti-white hatred did it.

    Rush Limbaugh — “Politics is show business for ugly people”

    “Politics is show business for ugly people” dates to at least 1991, when Texas political consultant Bill Miller used the phrase. Political consultant Paul Begala and comedian Jay Leno also used the phrase “politics is show business for ugly people,” but after Bill Miller’s 1991 use. Variants of the phrase (with “Washington/politics” and “Hollywood/show business” substitutions) include “Washington (DC) is show business for ugly people,” “Washington is Hollywood for ugly people,” and “Politics is Hollywood for ugly people.”

    Remember the murder of cops in Dallas? That black nut was radicalized by BLM.

    Paul Schrader has gone full Bickle. He calls for violence and presumably killings too.

    Media are playing with fire. Media say ‘city of hate’ Dallas killed Kennedy when he was killed by Marxist radical Oswald.

    And the current hysteria in the media is ‘activating’ potential Oswalds all over.

    But media are too blinded by PC to realize that they are filled with hate. ‘Hate’ only exists on the other side since PC vilifies only ‘angry white males’.

    In the Media-verse, human emotions have been politicized to the point that hateful emotions are hateful only when felt or expressed by whites. When Progs and non-whites feel them, the emotions are positive and ‘revolutionary’, no matter how unhinged, deranged, and murderous.

    Using this logic, killing is murder only when white ‘rightists’ do it. If the other side does it, never mind.

    But then, the media divide this country with PC and identity politics but then accuses whites of being divisive. Media are like someone who farts a nasty one but accuses others of breaking wind.

    Media message to whites is, “We play divisive politics against you whites, but you whites better unite with our hostility against your kind to ensure your demise.”

    If things get worse and worse, Trump should say, “OK enough is enough. I’m siding with the Palestinians since Zionist elites hate us white folks as much as they hate Palestinians.”

    the feminization of the country comes from various factors but can be gathered up in the general term Society, which is a swirl of personal factors, weird Ideas, celebrity, spectator sports, physical fitness obsession, TV, and on and on. The State is largely discredited due to liberal Society tampering…race equality, gov’mnt grifters, neocon wars against the Arabs, and on and on.
    The State will be reaffirmed as the central Authority in the context of all this cultural subversion of Society. The spectacle of the Hamilton theater event with Pence basically saying that this is what America looks like…spinelessness. The insolence of the black queer that insulted him is amazing. Only a big stick is going to bring these uppity folks into submission.

    Give these folks a taste of real Fear. Make it real, not just tears and teddy bears.

    Trump probably gets it that The State will sort things out…forcibly. Authority will be reestablished. The armies of the night will be shot down as they loot and burn.

    Pussy rioters will be jailed immediately, and black killers will be summarily killed by the cops. All of this will be supported by the new AG.

    As Reagan said at the time of the Berkeley riots, about 1970, if there is going to be a blood bath, let’s do it now and get it over with.

    As leftish guy at the time I thought this was extreme, but wising up to the jewcommie character of SDS, etc…I figured Reagan had a point.

    What Reagan said is many times more appropriate now. Society will be subordinated to the State, where it belongs, and Nature will no longer be tortured with Great Society Programs, etc….all basically communist and Jewish subversion.

    Yes Moshe finally you admitted the truth which your sister Noami Wolf have been telling you Talmud and Bible reading fools…

    The West interprets veiling as repression of women and suppression of their sexuality. But when I traveled in Muslim countries and was invited to join a discussion in women-only settings within Muslim homes, I learned that Muslim attitudes toward women’s appearance and sexuality are not rooted in repression, but in a strong sense of public versus private, of what is due to God and what is due to one’s husband. It’s not that Islam suppresses sexuality, but that it embodies a strongly developed sense of its appropriate channeling – toward marriage, the bonds that sustain family life, and the attachment that secures a home,” – Naomi Wolf, an American Jewish feminist in her article titled ‘ Behind the veil lives a thriving Muslim sexuality’….

    This is one of those myths that continue to be written about. Mitch McConnell made this comment in October 2010 – two years after Obama’s inauguration. In the same interview he also said that the Republicans could work with Obama if he had a change of approach like the one that Bill Clinton did during his Presidency. He felt that Obama showed no compromise in his approach. Compromise is the basis of democracy.

    Without bikini, women have always been discriminated in the Judo-Christian world…Muslim countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey, and Indonesia have elected women as head of governments.

    Pakistan and Bangladesh are in the Indic civilizational area, hence Benazir Bhutto and the two Begums, Hasina and Zia. So is Indonesia, which elected Megawati Sukarnoputri. In fact, the world’s first female Muslim ruler (1236-1240 AD) was also from India – Razia Sultana of the so-called Slave Dynasty.

    Turkey was firmly secular when Tansu Çiller served as Prime Minister. Things have changed since then.

    “Led by the New York Times, the media missed the Trump story. The issue was not whether the opinion page writers were for or against Trump. The issue was that the paper was slanting new coverage to influence opinion. The media was telling its readers what to think, and not even bothering to hide the fact.”

    Yep. How rich that the purveyors of Fake News should be preaching about dangers of Fake News.

    Yes, a lot of alternative news site sometimes do report fake news — but then, so does MSM with hype over UVA rape hoax and ‘gay girl in Syria’ — , and MSM should lead the way with principled reporting and professional standards.

    But with lowered standards and PC dogmatism(favoring the Narrative over facts) in MSM(that is run by Globo oligarchs for profit), there are no more standards left.
    If the MSM had done its duty, its criticism of ‘fake news’, alternative news, and sensational news would make sense and be most welcome. While Alex Jones Infowars does report some interesting, it is also full of crap. It falls below the standards of journalistic principles and standards.

    But now, it’s gotten to the point where MSM is hardly better or at times even worse than alternative news.

    Someone like Paul Craig Roberts may exaggerate US evil around the world, but MSM has looked the other way to what is clearly acts of US neo-imperialism. Also, Roberts’ reporting and recommendations have done no harm to the world. In contrast, MSM has colluded with US government to turn entire nations into hellholes.

    As MSM goes along with the sham BLM narrative and overlooks the fact that the reason for Muslim refugees is US-instigated wars in the Middle East, it stinks to high heaven.

    And the tiresome habit of referring to black thugs as ‘teens’ or ‘youths’. I mean how can any honest person not see the racial angle of these crimes?

    The media are now just a globalist tool.

    It used to be the case that Communists used capitalist and democratic fronts to spread their ideology and influence.
    Now, the Globalists use ‘progressive’ and ‘socialist’ fronts to spread the power and influence of the top 1%; this explains why homomania is such a big big deal among the new ‘democratic socialists’. It favors minority elite privilege in every nation since homos of all nations are mostly likely to turn traitor and collaborate with Wall Street, Hollywood, and Soros of the world.

    Globalism is an exclusive club for winners of all nations against losers of all nations.
    The GLOB elites are indeed diverse and made up of all races. But the club is only open to the ‘best and the brightest’ and their kids and well-connected cucks and flunkies.

    As for the rest of humanity? They are ‘deplorable’ since the main theme of New Progressivism is WORSHIP THE HOLY HOMO and PRAISE BE THE TRANNY with a doctor’s appointment to cut off his willy in 2 weeks.

    Globalism is the coming together of the ‘winners’ of all nations and coming apart of the elites and masses of all nations.

    Reformed Rabbi Allen S. Maller, led Temple Akiba in Culver City, CA for 39 years before retiring in 2006. He taught at University of Judaism in Las Angeles, and is author of several books and has penned columns for several Jewish publications. Rabbi Maller believes the West’s main problem with Islam is that it’s different philosophy from Judaism and Christianity. While both earlier Abrahamic religions got rid off religious ethics from politics, Islamic teachings refuse to separate religious ethics from politics and day-to-day social life.

    “Islam is not more violent than medieval Christianity or Biblical Judaism. But in the last two centuries, western democracies have learned the importance of the principle of separation of Church and State to civil peace. Also the wide spread separation of Church and State that is now normal in Europe and North America has kept religion out of political and military conflicts between different nations,” Rabbi Allen S. Maller said on December 28, 2015.

    Instead of changing the subject just read what I posted, it’s all there.

    here’s more:

    “Alone the fact that one may not question the Jewish “holocaust” and that Jewish pressure has inflicted laws on democratic societies to prevent questions—while incessant promotion and indoctrination of the same averredly incontestable ‘holocaust’ occur—gives the game away. It proves that it must be a lie. Why else would one not be allowed to question it? Because it might offend the “survivors”? Because it “dishonors the dead”? Hardly sufficient reason to outlaw discussion. No, because the exposure of this leading lie might precipitate questions about so many other lies and cause the whole ramshackle fabrication to crumble.”

    What is “Indic civilizational area” moron?

    There was no “al-Hind” (India) when the first Afghan Muslim ruler established the ‘Slave Dynasty’ near Delhi. at that time the Hindu masses were divided into 5,000 large and tiny states. It were the Mughal Kings who United those Hindu states based on apartheid and racism like today’s Israel into one state on Indian sub-continent which extended from Bengal to Kabul and to West of Persia. British colonized the state in 18th century and named it INDIA which now is split into India, Pakistan, Sikkim, and Nepal.

    Benazir Bhutto, Khalida Zia, and Hasina Sheikh were all born in Pakistan to Muslim parents, and not in India to Hindu parents.

    Well, if you offer your sister to some Saudi ‘royal’ who all have Jewish family roots – she might someday become Queen of Saudi Arabia. Qatar and Bahrain don’t practice democracy. Both countries are ruled by the British Viceroys. Remember, it’s Britain which gave birth to Israel.

    Israel had Golda Meir but none of the Muslim women leaders mentioned came from the Arab world… They were Sindhi, Bengali, Turkic and Malay (three out of four nations were influenced by Hinduism and Turkey had its share of Jewish intellectuals to help out with all thorny issues) while your masters didn’t provide a single female leader. Get you facts right, Paki boy!

    You are absolutely correct Jason Liu. Fathers need to be much stricter with their daughters in terms of dress, behavior and language. This is more difficult these days as the authority of men is undermined by feminists and the media.

    Last night I came across an episode of The Simpsons TV show: the school was divided into boys and girls sections; Lisa goes to the girls’ math class where the teacher asks how addition ‘feels’ and how multiplication ‘smells’ or some such; Lisa asks ‘when are we going to do some actual math problems?’ and the teacher mocks her that ‘problems’ is such a male thing.

    We could easily have seen this coming as far back as Catharine MacKinnon’s 1989 book on the theory of a feminist state, wherein she basically puts forward – with ‘philosophical’ lingo and concepts borrowed from the Soviets (substituting ‘women’ for the ‘oppressed proletarian masses’ – the position that rationality is a male thing and intuition is the far more genuine and female and human thing.

    In the 1990s this fire in the national forest burned into a junction with Victimism, creating assorted wildfires based on the presumption that the horror of the (alleged) crime should outweigh such fuddy-duddy concerns as evidence that the crime was actually committed by the accused. (Only recently and with painful slowness – e.g. the 2006 Duke University and 2016 University of Virginia rape allegations – has this wildfire been slowed, but it has hardly been contained.)

  50. Ballyhoo says:

    I think the great unspoken dynamic operative in the Great Society’s inception was the Democrats’ Demographic Problem: since 1948, as their Depression era voters reached fiscal security, the party saw its voting numbers fall off.

    It was Democratic operative Fred C. Dutton in 1970 or 1971 who wrote a book overtly proposing that the party embrace women, blacks, immigrants and the young.

    And the government – i.e. the Democrats under LBJ – did exactly that, with LBJ even as early as the mid-1960s gushing that the Democrats were ‘for’ just about everything (and anything) and ‘against’ very little.

    And this brought into being another vital dynamic that has affected rational political activity: the desperate Dems put the entire weight of the government behind ‘just about everything’; so many of the ideas that are now taken for granted did not percolate up through the filters of genuine popular political consideration. Rather, they were imposed from above with the full weight and pressure of the government brought to bear. These ideas did not succeed because they had proven themselves but simply because the government rigged the game to make sure they were the only option that could be considered.

  51. Ballyhoo says:

    And I would add this: it is taken for granted far too easily that the great political watershed of the 1970s was Watergate. It was not. Nixon did nothing that the LBJ hadn’t tried in the run-up to the 1960 when he considered getting JFK’s medical records from the doctor’s office to demonstrate just how physically sick JFK was.

    The watershed was Nixon’s 1972 win over McGovern, 49 states to 1 (the holdout was Massachusetts, and considering that the Teddy-Kennedy machine was based in that state … one might wonder). McGovern had let it all hang out as to the agenda of the New Democratic Party and the voters rejected all its pomps and works by that hugely decisive margin.

    It was at that point that the Democrats, the media (who had become quite taken with itself as creating history rather than recording it), and assorted intellectual elites morphed into a determined revolutionary ideological assemblage for whom revolutionary politics was the only option: whatever it takes to effect the revolution (nicely euphemized as ‘change’ and ‘transformation’) is OK and whatever doesn’t, isn’t.

    Watergate was their solution. And Watergate was the revelation and warning to the country: the actual election was doo-doo; the Democratic revolution-train was the express and anything or anyone seeking to block or slow it was going to be pinned on the cow-catcher of government authority and ‘politically correct’ elite opinion and either run over or cast aside.

    I know Spencer. He is driven by ego. He is an adolescent rich kid.

    He is not political. He is the racial right’s functional equivalent of pussy riot. I have been hectoring some of the WN folks…and just heard from various notables. One has said goodbye to Spencer. ( from the line-up of speakers at the debacle…couple others will probably do likewise.)

    Spencer gets his 15 days of Fame, feeds the racial right to the media sharks. He has put us thru the shredder all for his ego. The hitler types maybe will be sobered up a bit.

    Alt-Right is not political. It is cultural. And because of that it has no claim to Authority, the kind of authority that will stay reasonable, fact-based, and sober. It is a disaster.

    The slogan was “wait to next year,” not “the resistance must continue.” Losers “took it like a man” and looked to the future. Nobody marched or rioted in the hope changing the outcome.

    Speaking about sport, there was some signs long before today that the world of fair play was coming to an end. It started with the Salt Lake City Olympics, when they had awarded a “second” golden medal to the Canadians. And the final blow was the recent Olympics when everything about our new crooked world became clear: not sure if you can beat your main rival? then just defame and ban him from the game itself. So Olympics, being the most politicized form of sport, have very well reflected the changes in politics itself.

    The Left is more highly politicized then the Right.
    Hence, the Left is more deeply disappointed because their lives are based on politics and political revolution.
    The Left is basically a bunch of freaks, while the Right is normal Americans.
    Frankly, the Left, therefore, has the advantage.
    And the Left politicizes its children. The Right does not.
    The Left is always on the move.
    The Right tends to get complacent.

    Your arguments don’t hold water. And you sound whiny.

    To argue that the personal is being made political (and that this is a new thing?), you quote Sophie Theallet attacking the “rhetoric” of Donal Trump. That is a case of the political being made personal. Then you use the example of Mike Pence’s trip to the theater. You call the Hamilton cast’s stunt a “lecture” and a “harangue,” but you quote one actor saying “We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.” Which sounds more like humble protest. So beyond illogical, your mismatched word choices seem whiny. And in saying Pence brushed it off as a real man you really show your bias by ignoring Donald Trump’s childish reaction on Twitter.

    You ask, can anybody recall Nixon being so mistreated? I can recall so much worse being said about Nixon, as people marched outside the White House for days on end in protest of his actions.

    ALSO, if you’ve ever played a pickup game, you should know, you definitely do not let double dribbles slide.

    You will note the vast majority of those running and reading “alt-media”, are men. Now anyone can build a website, there is no “glass ceiling” to stop women, its their own selfish nature.

    Women are the fulcrum of much that is wrong with America, self serving hypocrites.

    Women have led the charge to identity politics.
