From commenter Cagey Beast:

This is like the Nerf gun version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Hopefully there will be show trials streamed live on Periscope and enemies of the vagina people will be sentenced to virtual hard labour playing Minecraft.

    Yeah, 30-40 million dead Chinamen would have liked to disagree with you ... oh, and about a billion more that were destitute until that tyrant fortunately died in 1976.

    What do you think of Pol Pot, then, kind of the Oriental Benjamin Franklin to Mao's George Washington?

    I essentially view Chairman Mao as a modern version of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang: he was necessary for China to get out of a situation that was even worse and on the track to forward progress down the road, but that doesn't make him a nice guy or an ideal ruler. The Cultural Revolution traumatized and broke the nation-but it was an improvement over having the IJA going around and using random civilians for bayonet practice.

    Mao certainly looked upon himself, toward the end of his life, as just another founder of a new dynasty who would melt back onto the Confucian tapestry after his death. And if you look upon Mao as a new dynasty founder, all of a sudden, he makes a lot more sense in the context of Chinese history.

    , @Neoconned
    Mao probably will be viewed far nicer by history than he is now.

    That being said I find the current feminist Femquisition a striking parallel to his Cultural Revolution. The only difference being his was a cult of personality driven phenomenon.

    The Femquisition is more like a random chicken with it's head cut off leaderless attention seeking thing.

    For all it's faults I miss the Cold War & the authortarianism of the 20th century...

    “Blind Items Revealed – Revisited”

    http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2017/11/blind-items-revealed-revisited.html

    Good to know that every one is finally on board with that Sylvester Stallone story. Most of you guessed the blind correctly two years ago and I revealed it 18 months ago.

    July 4, 2016

    This actor is probably permanently A+ list. He is not that great of an actor but somehow is a multiple Academy Award winner/nominee.He is getting up there in age. Hitting a big birthday this year. Back in the day he was cruising for teens. He always went looking for them. The younger the better, He especially loved going to states that have really young age of consent laws. Back when he was in his 40’s, he found a state that had an age of consent of 16. He would go to a mall or arcade and make a big entrance. People recognized him and swarmed him. He would find one or two of the female teens and take them to his hotel. They had to be 16 or 17. No one older. Anyway, one time he found a 16 year old and played his star card and she was soon joining him back at his hotel. At his hotel he brought out a surprise. She was going to have to have sex with the actor and his bodyguard. The bodyguard was a regular in these things. He was there to act as a witness and to make sure nothing happened to the actor. When it was over our actor threatened to kill the teen if she ever told anyone. Well, she did tell someone and went to the police. The police pressured her to say the encounter was consensual because they didn’t want to have any trouble with the actor. The police never even bothered to talk to the actor or the bodyguard. They just pressured the teen until she dropped the whole thing. She has lived with the emotional scars her entire life and is finally going to come out talking about it and what the actor and the bodyguard did to her.

    Sylvester Stallone

    The Cultural Revolution 2.0 has two other interesting strands that have come up in the last few days:

    1. The new app that will simulate what a woman looks like without makeup that is being called Putin’s new tactic in the war on women. It is not like women would ever put effort into looking younger and better so that they could use their looks to attract men or get jobs.

    2. Female NYT “reporter” pushing Twitter to censor all videos of Mr. Feely (Biden) doing weird things around young girls and grown women. Clinton may be past his usefulness but Biden is out polling Trump (in their polls) so he can’t be Cultural Revolutioned yet.

    It is not like women would ever put effort into looking younger and better so that they could use their looks to attract men or get jobs.

     

    What do both of those goals have in common?

    Competing with other women.

    "Putin's new tactic in the war on women" (as it's being referred to in some quarters) is literally unmasking women's efforts to defeat each other in mating battles, real or imagined.

    Though obviously many men seem to be silly-minded enough to fall for it. Apparently some guys like having masked women fight over them. Which seems like an odd inversion of an old Zorro movie or something.

  7. I have to admit I ripped off “vagina people” from a conversation I saw last month on Twitter. Two /pol/ types were discussing some feminist outrage surrounding Blade Runner 2049. The feminists were complaining about the lack of female roles. One of the guys on Twitter said: “What are they talking about? Half the characters were vagina people”. He was right, of course.

    Maybe that’s the best name to give to the Pussy Hat types? It might discourage them from endlessly referencing their own and other people’s genitalia in order to make their political case. Anything’s worth a try.

    Life was cheaper there than it is here. Mao ended two centuries of foreign domination of China, and was pragmatic enough to meet with Nixon and abandon his lunatic ideas towards the end.

    It does seem we now have "revisionists" for every mass killing, that I cannot condone. But we can't deny that Mao was the 20th century's most consequential leader, heroism doesn't necessarily mean the opposite of "villian", it simply measures the impact of the deeds.

    One problem is that many very decent and basically moral young women are among the most committed to leftist ideology. I’m not talking about ideologues and women seeking to justify their slatternly behavior, but rather women who genuinely care about other people, and seek to go into such realms as nursing, social work, education, etc., for which the educational milieu is utterly ideological. Caring and empathy are inherently good things, but like all good things they can be exploited by intelligent malefactors.

    That is indeed a tough point to ponder, but somehow the downright mass murder and forced/unforced starvation and misery caused by Commie and other totalitarian governments seems worse.

    I wouldn't call Mao "the 20th century’s most consequential leader". For China, yes, I'm sure, but there was much competition elsewhere around the world.

    Lastly, the meaning of "hero" has been abused over the last years, so Mao was no here in any sense of the actual word. (I don't recall that he was on the front lines in battle and he got carried by other Reds for a good portion of their long march.) Even people who defend themselves and others are called heroes now, and that is not the real definition. A hero is a man who puts his life and limb on the line for people when he could have stayed out of the fray with no consequence.

    Yeah, right. Godfree Roberts is a better demographer than Judith Banister at Stanford. And he is a more astute economist than those at the World Bank who specialize in the study of economic growth. He is also a great historian and political scientist. Perhaps he can be entered into the next Olympics.

    Come to Revolution Books in Berkeley. They told me Deng Xiaoping was bad because he destroyed real communism.

    , @Achmed E. Newman
    I HAVE read his first article (about 2 weeks back) and was so disgusted with Robert's lack of any knowledge and perspective of history, that I wrote him off as a NEXT-GEN-Commie.

    This is his biggest piece of stupidity: Godfree wrote that it was Chairman Mao's Communism that got China's economy to the powerful state it is in now. That is so backwards, that it just makes him sound like an ignoramus. It was Deng Xiaoping, who took off part of the yoke of Communism to let the Chinese thrive in small business ventures, something that they are naturally outstanding at. (starting with people in Canton - Shenzhen was a small village - say a few hundred thousand people in the 1980's and is now a manufacturing powerhouse, along with Dongguan and Guangzhou.) who got this economy out of the ditch.

    Had Mao lived longer or someone else kept his hard-core Communism in place, we'd hardly be mentioning China now, as it'd still be the backwards shithole it was. Some old Chinapeople reminisce that back in Mao's day there was not much crime - hell yeah, there was nothing to steal! To this day, a know a lady whose Mom in China would never eat corn again after the 70's. That was because during the starvation times, the US, and arch-enemy in the Cold War, sent over corn shipments. Somewhat unfortunately for this Mom, it was all feed corn so not particularly tasty. Hey, we weren't sending our best.

    Sam, I get your point, but I think Communism did a pretty big number on Chinese civilization anyway. Yes, the people are still there and the nation is large majority Chinese - more than most of the Western world can say. Communism has ruined the morals of the people, in my opinion, as it usually does have the long-term effect of destroying religion. More here.

    Related. I was talking to a woman last night who has just left her 2nd husband. Two husbands, one kid by each. She was excited to have met a new guy who was "so sweet!" I felt bad for the guy, knowing that he would eventually be chucked out as well. But she's fairly hot for her age and having kids by multiple dads. Gaudy makeup, bared shoulders, tattoos. I guess men fall for that stuff and suppose it'll all work out, despite the terrible track record. Zorro indeed.

    Not Nerf guns.

    And not Orgasmorators or Orgasmotrons or whatever you call them.

    No, Wingo guns.

    Wingo was an experimental new indoor shooting sport which was conducted in a bowling alley like place with special, tethered micro-shotguns and a machine that chucked ice balls through the air. The only Wingo parlor was built in San Diego, (a piss poor location chosen on purpose) and ran in 1972.

    It was uniquely California, uniquely new, uniquely now.

    Basically it was like skeet or trap shooting, but you shot ice balls with a .20 caliber smoothbore long gun inside a building that was air conditioned and heated. The gun was tethered to the shooting bench so you couldn’t turn it on anyone in back of you, and the ammo was specially made and mutually incompatible with any other firearm.

    It was an attempt to combine the success of bowling with the attraction of shooting firearms. Since the gun was tethered there were no criminal background checks or age requirements.

    All we need to do is to replace the ice balls with pink dyed ice vaginas.

    Throw Weinstein, Franken, Moore et al to the wolves.

    But will come a point when this all moves beyond actual real awful sexual harassment and worse to demonizing every socially awkward instance of any man showing unappreciated attention of or interest in women. Nobody is traumatized by being asked out and saying no, nor being offered a drink, nor making small talk in a guy’s hope forlorn hope of something more. Bluntly there is not a cis gender man alive who has not been turned down, nor acted obnoxiously in a bar, nor said some things he should not have said. Feminism wants to go from criminalizing actual criminality to criminalizing everyday human nature . We aren’t there yet, but it is coming.

    Except there appears to be no proof of law breaking by Trump.

    Franken? He's screwed

    What laws did Franken break? Cupping one’s hands over a sleeping woman’s flak vest is not illegal, or at least it obviously shouldn’t be.

    I have to admit I ripped off "vagina people" from a conversation I saw last month on Twitter. Two /pol/ types were discussing some feminist outrage surrounding Blade Runner 2049. The feminists were complaining about the lack of female roles. One of the guys on Twitter said: "What are they talking about? Half the characters were vagina people". He was right, of course.

    Maybe that's the best name to give to the Pussy Hat types? It might discourage them from endlessly referencing their own and other people's genitalia in order to make their political case. Anything's worth a try.

    Don’t you mean, “people who think they have vaginas”?

    Funny how both Franken and Trump used television fame as a springboard to a political career. Now they have accusations of sexual misconduct in common as well. Apart from that, they don't see eye-to-eye on much:

    https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/931357870024687616

    Trump is an idiot for piling on Franken, given the accusations against himself. And as repugnant as Moore is, he would probably be better to have in the senate than his Democrat opponent, and now to be consistent Trump needs to comment on Moore.

    Yeah, right. Godfree Roberts is a better demographer than Judith Banister at Stanford. And he is a more astute economist than those at the World Bank who specialize in the study of economic growth. He is also a great historian and political scientist. Perhaps he can be entered into the next Olympics.

    It is not like women would ever put effort into looking younger and better so that they could use their looks to attract men or get jobs.

     

    What do both of those goals have in common?

    Competing with other women.

    "Putin's new tactic in the war on women" (as it's being referred to in some quarters) is literally unmasking women's efforts to defeat each other in mating battles, real or imagined.

    Though obviously many men seem to be silly-minded enough to fall for it. Apparently some guys like having masked women fight over them. Which seems like an odd inversion of an old Zorro movie or something.

    “Though obviously many men seem to be silly-minded enough to fall for it. Apparently some guys like having masked women fight over them.”

    Related. I was talking to a woman last night who has just left her 2nd husband. Two husbands, one kid by each. She was excited to have met a new guy who was “so sweet!” I felt bad for the guy, knowing that he would eventually be chucked out as well. But she’s fairly hot for her age and having kids by multiple dads. Gaudy makeup, bared shoulders, tattoos. I guess men fall for that stuff and suppose it’ll all work out, despite the terrible track record. Zorro indeed.

    One of my major complaints against the MGTOW and PUA types is that they evade dealing with the part of men's psyches geared to being dads and protectors by obsessing over their boners and what sluts women are, etc.

    In this they are driving some younger males in the same degenerate directions that feminism drove women for so many years by presenting an outside-the-Hajnal-Line model of mating to young men not hardwired for that. It is a deliberate destruction.

    I have no one-size-fits-all alternative. I simply try to spend as much time as possible with as many younger guys as I can manage. Mostly around shooting sports/hunting. Also give them guided social exposure to couples with well-functioning marriages, and children. Many of these guys come from "families" hardly deserving of the name. They ache for a birthright they have never experienced.

    At this point, however, it seems many must choose between deliberately damaged (by the infotainment moloch) goods...and solitude. With gals as with guys, the good ones tend to be snapped up early.

    Though I'll note I wasn't, nor was the love of my life...but that's because we were both fierce squares and prudes when it came to such matters. Knowing a lot about microbiology/microbial population ecology factored into that. But it was a tough way to go in the '70s and '80s. Lonely and confusing. But apparently not nearly so much so as this serial trashogamy.

    Life was cheaper there than it is here. Mao ended two centuries of foreign domination of China, and was pragmatic enough to meet with Nixon and abandon his lunatic ideas towards the end.

    It does seem we now have "revisionists" for every mass killing, that I cannot condone. But we can't deny that Mao was the 20th century's most consequential leader, heroism doesn't necessarily mean the opposite of "villian", it simply measures the impact of the deeds.

    Are we any better in the West, having aborted untold tens of millions for the Sexual Revolution???

    Are we any better in the West, having aborted untold tens of millions for the Sexual Revolution???

    That is indeed a tough point to ponder, but somehow the downright mass murder and forced/unforced starvation and misery caused by Commie and other totalitarian governments seems worse.

    I wouldn’t call Mao “the 20th century’s most consequential leader”. For China, yes, I’m sure, but there was much competition elsewhere around the world.

    Lastly, the meaning of “hero” has been abused over the last years, so Mao was no here in any sense of the actual word. (I don’t recall that he was on the front lines in battle and he got carried by other Reds for a good portion of their long march.) Even people who defend themselves and others are called heroes now, and that is not the real definition. A hero is a man who puts his life and limb on the line for people when he could have stayed out of the fray with no consequence.

    Godfrey Roberts from Unz converted me - Chairman Mao was a hero. Great set of articles posted right now- very intersting.

    I essentially view Chairman Mao as a modern version of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang: he was necessary for China to get out of a situation that was even worse and on the track to forward progress down the road, but that doesn’t make him a nice guy or an ideal ruler. The Cultural Revolution traumatized and broke the nation-but it was an improvement over having the IJA going around and using random civilians for bayonet practice.

    Mao certainly looked upon himself, toward the end of his life, as just another founder of a new dynasty who would melt back onto the Confucian tapestry after his death. And if you look upon Mao as a new dynasty founder, all of a sudden, he makes a lot more sense in the context of Chinese history.

    I HAVE read his first article (about 2 weeks back) and was so disgusted with Robert’s lack of any knowledge and perspective of history, that I wrote him off as a NEXT-GEN-Commie.

    This is his biggest piece of stupidity: Godfree wrote that it was Chairman Mao’s Communism that got China’s economy to the powerful state it is in now. That is so backwards, that it just makes him sound like an ignoramus. It was Deng Xiaoping, who took off part of the yoke of Communism to let the Chinese thrive in small business ventures, something that they are naturally outstanding at. (starting with people in Canton – Shenzhen was a small village – say a few hundred thousand people in the 1980′s and is now a manufacturing powerhouse, along with Dongguan and Guangzhou.) who got this economy out of the ditch.

    Had Mao lived longer or someone else kept his hard-core Communism in place, we’d hardly be mentioning China now, as it’d still be the backwards shithole it was. Some old Chinapeople reminisce that back in Mao’s day there was not much crime – hell yeah, there was nothing to steal! To this day, a know a lady whose Mom in China would never eat corn again after the 70′s. That was because during the starvation times, the US, and arch-enemy in the Cold War, sent over corn shipments. Somewhat unfortunately for this Mom, it was all feed corn so not particularly tasty.

    I'd also add that calling Mao a "feminist" in the sense of the modern day word is pretty inaccurate. (Cue his earthy Xiang peasant humor with Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger about "bathing in women".)

    He was feminist by the standards of his day, to be sure: which meant that he was against polygamy and foot binding and trafficking and female illiteracy and over-the-top abuse-all of which were good things, I should add, that helped build modern China, but also things that the foreign Christian missionaries of the day too supported. He would have regarded Western feminists in the 1970s, let alone today's crowd, as a mentally insane bunch of decadents who needed to be shipped off to labor camps to get a taste of some real work.

    And whether in Europe or Asia, Communist societies in general tended to be rigorously... "heteronormative", in SJW-speak. Even today, the Chinese government is launching official campaigns like this against the influence of Japanese/South Korean pop culture:

    The current TFR of Taiwan is 1.18 (in 2010 it was .9). Mao killed millions but western liberalism would have destroyed Chinese civilization. Sometimes there are no good options.

    Sam, I get your point, but I think Communism did a pretty big number on Chinese civilization anyway. Yes, the people are still there and the nation is large majority Chinese – more than most of the Western world can say. Communism has ruined the morals of the people, in my opinion, as it usually does have the long-term effect of destroying religion. More here.

    Oddly enough, evangelical Christianity has rapidly been taking off in China, and I suspect part of the reason is the legacy of the Cultural Revolution leaving a massive spiritual vacuum. By most metrics, China will have the worlds largest amount of Christians by 2030, in spite of being an atheist state.

    And yes: it is a important part of the story that there was very little in the way of good options for China in the 1940s. The KMT was corrupt as the day was long, and was certainly not going to do what was necessary to lay the blueprint for China to be dragged into the modern age. Ironically enough, it was probably losing and being booted off the mainland that got the KMT to finally get their butts in gear, not terribly unlike how North Korea's initial economic lead over the South lead to the military coup of 1961 and Park Chung Hee's reforms. Mao launching mass literary programs meant that they had to keep up. Land reform, which they had constantly resisted, took off: though that the local landowners were islanders that they never had contact with before, as opposed to being donors/party members, probably helped, too. The result paid off in the end: Taiwan became an Asian Tiger, whereas China was something like a massive North Korea by the early 1970s.

    Contemporary Mainland China, ironically enough, resembles Chiang's vision far more than Mao's: "protectionist capitalist", nationalist, authoritarian, centralized, etc, and generally acting against revolution rather than for it abroad.

    Has there been a good analysis of Feminism(tm) as the vulgar “dime-store”* handmaiden of globalist totali-capital? Some old reds pointed this out during Obamism, mostly to complete crickets. It surprises me how well the two blocs work together– whatever the harpies say they want is always oddly consistent with preexisting interests of Slim Times, Faceberg, Likud Street Journal, The Ecosplayonomist etc.

    At one point mom leans out the window and yells to her husband, "Would you PLEASE be careful! We just had that lawn resodded, and the boys are tearing it up sliding and such!"

    One thing that the PUA movement does is teach men that their ultimate goal is to have sex. There is nothing beyond that.
    But that's wrong. Having sex is only a step towards the real goal, which is to have sons they can teach to throw fast balls during long summer evenings -- and have daughters they can warn to keep away from PUAs.

    I think it was Harmon Killebrew who was remembering his dad, out with himself and his brothers playing baseball in the nicely mowed/tended yard on one side of their house.

    At one point mom leans out the window and yells to her husband, “Would you PLEASE be careful! We just had that lawn resodded, and the boys are tearing it up sliding and such!”

    Harmon’s dad walks over and says to her, “Honey, I know that. But remember: we’re raising boys here. Not grass.”
