Roman Polanski again

Let’s have fun with this one. The so-called MeToo movement — mostly neo-Marxist agitprop in its motivations and intentions — has shattered the awkward and ill-fitting illusions of modern democratic totalitarianism, breaking the uncomfortable bonds of progressive fellow-feeling at last. Suddenly, beginning in earnest with the exposure of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the left had turned on itself, as the activist female Marxist...

Weekend (wry) smile: America today

I just read that a University of Montana man, Jonathan Eastwood, who now identifies as a University of Montana woman, June Eastwood, has been named the university’s “female athlete of the week.” Because feminism and identity politics are essential to advancing the causes of equality and fairness for women. I saw a CBS News Online headline a couple of days ago announcing, in...

Female Marxism, Part IV: The Logic of Weakness

Spoken in the secret heart of the true feminist: “I don’t want to live like other women. Therefore… “Every woman must accept my way of living. “Every woman must approve of my way of living. “Every woman must prefer and praise my way of living. “Every woman who lives in the old way is evil. “Every woman must be taught to believe that...

Female Marxism, Part III: Great Moments in The Struggle

If, like me, you regard modern feminism as nothing but a neo-Marxist ruse aimed at undermining the family and diluting “traditional” masculinity in order the more easily to absorb the individual within the socialist collective, i.e., to facilitate totalitarianism, you will enjoy a short piece at Patterico’s site, “The Moment a Soon-to-Be-Released Book Crashes and Burns.”  In fact, “enjoy” is far too reserved...

Female Marxism, Part II: Sexual Empowerment

Alyssa Milano, a two-bit actress currently playing the role of a two-bit celebrity activist, has come up with a stellar plan for fighting back against abortion opponents: a “sex strike.” Before you get excited imagining alternative implications of that interesting name, what she means is that women should stop having sex as a means of forcing men to stop passing laws restricting abortion...

Here’s the MeToo Standard of Justice

In the wake of Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of a thirty-five-year-old moment of mistreatment at an underage drinking party — “wake” as in the allegation is dead, since there is not a shred of evidence, not a single supporting witness, and the claim sounds like the paranoid exaggeration of an addled adolescent anyway — the MeToo army has kicked into full gear. A...

The Kavanaugh “Scandal” and Female Marxism

Brett Kavanaugh, U.S. Supreme Court nominee, within days of his confirmation vote, has suddenly been hit with an accusation of sexual misconduct…or molestation…or maybe it was attempted rapeā€¦from thirty-five years ago. The allegation was known by Senator Feinstein for months, but held for launching until the last moment, so that scrutiny of the accusation and accuser would take a back seat to the...

How Leftist Times Have Changed

In light of the current progressive attack on U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, alleging rough drunken treatment of a girl at a high school drinking party thirty-five years ago, and citing this alleged misbehavior as grounds for rejecting his nomination and destroying his life and career, I wish to note to an amusing point of comparison from the Ghost of Liberalism Past....

Eternal Darkness of the Spotlessly Progressive Mind

Yesterday, I threw in my two cents regarding Sarah Jeong, the “Korean-American” race-obsessed harpy who has just been hired onto The New York Times editorial team — and hired not in spite of her race-obsessed harpydom, but because of it. (The Times has admitted to having examined her Twitter history before hiring her, which means they liked the naked hatred they saw there,...

Female Marxism, Part I: The War Against the Feminine

Progressivism, particularly in its neo-Marxist form, is as rife with self-contradiction as any big lie can be. Orwell captured this inherent self-contradiction well, albeit somewhat superficially, in Animal Farm (“Some animals are more equal than others”) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (e.g., Ministry of Truth, Ministry of Love, etc.). By “superficially,” I mean that Orwell defined the overt hypocrisy of Marxist revolutionaries well at the...
