Over the past couple of days I’ve been fixatedly watching this scary story unfold.
It’s a story about a bloodthirsty id-like psychological force that employs imagery of our greatest phobias but for some reason most commonly takes the form of a toxic, horrifying clown, and surfaces periodically to feed off our hatred and fear, slaughters a bunch of innocent children and then creeps back into the sewers to rest until everyone has forgotten about it again, and the only people who can see it and fight it are powerless dreamers, losers whose warnings are ignored by the jaded and arrogant populace, and who are berated as being little hooligans when they are forced to take matters into their own hands, as if they’re the problem rather than the timeless and demonic murder-force that’s poisoning the world.
CLASSIC SWITCHEROO! Turns out I’m not actually talking about Stephen King’s It.
Did you think I was talking about Pennywise? Maybe for a couple of seconds you did, but you probably figured it out fast. No, I’m talking about US and US-style McFascism, the latest reincarnation of a human ideology that basically leads to genocidal war. And ably represented as it apparently is by a gestalt figure I would like to call Pennydumbass.
I’m so glad I’ve been plunged down the rabbit hole of socio-political conflict and the oh-so-fluid and oh-so-irreconcilable definitions of left-wing, right-wing, liberal and conservative. It’s been so much fun and I can’t wait until my children have to do it all over again because we fucking failed.
I love how “Red Pill Black” and her white male billionaire authoritarian handlers have declared oppression and police-on-minority crime in the US to be a thing of the past. I’m so relieved!
I love how much I’ve been obliged to learn about Dave Rubin and the Rubin Report, and how narrow-minded and diverse-thought-stifling universities are. Spoiler: Turns out they’re not, not even in the US. Not even Berkeley. That’s a hysterically overblown bit of red pill propaganda, and oh yeah, I love having these new terms in my lexicon now. “Classical liberal”, that’s another great one. Thanks, Pennydumbass.
I love how much I now know about how bigoted and outmoded viewpoints are being smuggled back into the cultural consciousness in the guise of “diversity of ideas”. It’s so fucking great that that happens, and that we’re allowing it – not because it’s right, but because we’re apparently too craven to actually challenge bad ideas anymore, so we pretend that just sitting and listening to them is a righteous intellectual alternative. How perfectly that plays into our lazy armchair-commentator mentality and Internet culture, I love that too.
And Prager University! I love it! I love that its manifesto mentions that it was too difficult to build a physical working school (also probably illegal, when you look at what they’re “teaching”), so they are undermining actual education (“undoing the damage of the university”) one five-minute YouTube video at a time.
I love that Dave Rubin hosted this Prager fucker, and when Prager said that defeating the left is as important as defeating Islamism, Rubin just said “hm.” Because that’s how being an intelligent human works. I love that my species is sliding slowly and gracelessly down, its clumsy passage lubricated by the wet fecal matter as human spirit and intellect shits itself and dies, to a point where simply sitting and listening to an idea, giving it space in your brain and in your own ideology – no matter how small or innocuous a space – is considered as valuable as actually engaging and challenging an idea with knowledge and facts. I fucking love it. Ignore the stink of that carcass, it’s all good.
I love that PC culture, the oppression olympics, triggering and other hilariously minor non-issues are apparently intellectually justifiable reasons for planting your flag next to the Koch brothers, Crowder, Yiannopoulos, and other (among other things) climate change denying monsters who are quite literally going to destroy the human race. Great stuff, Rubin. Look out for yourself, you classical liberal you.
On that topic, I just want to say I love Ben Shapiro and the Daily Wire. I love how much I’ve had to see of Ben Shapiro’s toxic and irretrievably becunted views on victim mentality. In fact, I love the whole phenomenon of this circus-full of murderous fanged clowns being incapable of defending their ideologies in an actual marketplace of ideas, so they’re stacking the deck with – yes – collaborators who are trying to make “just hear them out like a classical liberal would” into a thing, with all the desperation of someone getting a great big pile of cash for doing so.
I just love it. Fuckers should be getting paid in silver.
Watch the video.
Also, It was pretty good. Looking forward to seeing chapter two.
