That captures the essence of what passes for our self-described cultural elite. Blinkered, philistine, pig-ignorance wrapped up in blind rage that borders on, and occasionally crosses over, the line into psychosis.You see, that phrase comes to us courtesy of John Cleese, starting at 1:30:
"Yes...well, that's just the sort of blinkered, philistine pig-ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage." How apt! That so very neatly encapsulates Hollywood, no other words are necessary.
My wife enjoys watching that kind of thing, and I was summoned to the family room specifically to witness the spectacle Spike Lee made of himself.
Most execrable of the lot was Spike Lee, the bespectacled, homunculus who is so utterly embalmed in racism and hatred (I had the distinct displeasure of running in the same circle as he at the NYU Film School in the late 70s/early 80s and far from mellowing with age, his madness is even more pronounced and strident than ever before). Sporting a purple zoot-suit from the loss leaders in the Huggy Bear collection, he took to the podium to exhort Americans to boot Trump from office in 2020. One wonders to whom he is speaking since those he is attempting to appeal to he regards as dog excrement on the bottom of his shoe. It never ceases to amaze, disappoint and disgust me that the blood-libeling of this nation, and its founding is so engrained in creatures such as Lee, when the very people, party and movement he supports are the ones responsible for all the evils and "original sins" as it were that have been inflicted upon his fellow American blacks and others. Yes, hate crimes and lynchings are even more prevalent now than in the Jim Crow era that Jussie Smollett had to fake one just to draw the attention of the American people to them. That said, the uttering of his name was about the only thing you didn't hear last night. Funny, that.No one mentioned Jussie Smollett last night because he embarasses them.

No, no sympathy here, either. If you want the "goodfeelz" from supporting transgenderism, you don't get to exclude them from sports.
If biological fact is secondary to a social construct--and believe me, the idea that a man can be a woman solely because he really wants to be is entirely a social construct--and you don't have any objection to that, then you must accept these kinds of results. If that man is really a woman--based only and entirely on how he feels about his biological sex!--then what else can you do?
This is, by the way, why feminism is threatened by transgenderism, and why the feminists are making absolutely no bones about it. It's a parallel to why Rachel Dolezal was pilloried for faking being black. She identified as being black, and felt as if she should have been born black; according to the theory applied to gender dysphorics she should have been treated and considered black for any and all purpose. But she wasn't. Her "racial dysphoria" was treated as an aberrant behavior.
Feminists don't like "transgender women"--men who identify as women--because it dilutes their pull. Ironically enough this is the one place their ideology intersects with reality: there is no such thing as a "biologically female penis". That phrase is an oxymoron, self-contradictory, a null statement.

Speaking of feminists it's pretty easy to see how any man could get tired of their constant screeching--even beta-fied soyboys have their limits, I guess.
...this woman lives for the absurdities and falsehoods of modern feminism, but when their low-testosterone male partners finally weary of the insane combination of feminist manhating and female needy dependence, and express discontent, she blames, not herself, not her weak male partner, but Trump.Impressive, that Trump.
Trump has the power, from Washington, to reach across time and space and smite her happiness in West Virginia.

Gay rights leader torches his own home. Why? Well, because he
...was disappointed the Jackson Pride Parade and Festival, held five days before the blaze, hadn't received more attention or protests.And of course the way to call peoples' attention to it is to fake a hate crime. Of course!

I agree--give them to their victims. No sympathy for terrorists here.

Well, I'm sure this isn't going to cause any trouble whatsoever!
Synopsis As IntroducedSo if this stupid crap becomes law, the cops aren't allowed to stop someone even if he is committing a crime right in front of them.
Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Provides that a peace officer shall not stop any person in a public place based upon an officer's inference from the circumstances that the person is committing, is about to commit, or has committed an offense as defined in the Code.
you see someone standing with their hands up in the air, while one or more persons rifles through their pockets, removing phones, wallets, other property? No stop allowedThat is what that black-letter verbiage means.
The intention here is to prevent cops from stopping and frisking people, because "RACISS", I guess.

$731 for a license plate in California. That's only if you're a citizen, though. If you're an illegal alien, you're given a pass for having expired plates. Or driving drunk without a license and with half a kilo of weed in the car.

Some people do understand that the church cannot serve two masters. Amen.

Some people have the delusion that others want to be them. Bill Maher thinks that "We have orchestras and theaters districts and world-class shopping. We have Chef Wolfgang Puck, they have Chef Boyardee."
Wolfgang Puck? You put up him as the exemplar of fine cuisine? Really?
...but he thinks that "red state America" wants to be just like "blue state America", and nothing could be further from the truth.
We don't want your music, your sex parties, your noise, your crime, your drugs, your socialism, your atheism, or anything else you've got. We want our religion, our traditions, our values. You can shove your orchestras and "theaters districts" right up your ass, sideways.

Pixy Misa gets right to the heart of it:
Is matter conscious? (Nautilus)If you're curious you can find the link to the (stupid) article at the link I posted, but I really wouldn't bother.
No. The question is stupid and the people asking the question are stupid. If you read that article, you will also become stupid. Don't read it.
The comments are also stupid.

So, it's Monday. Well. Hmm.
