What Happens When We Get Bored of the News

When there is SO much news all the time, what happens when we get a little reprieve from it?  You get this gem…

I guess posting an uneventful video and calling the Vice President a homophobe is what we do.  I’ve watched the video a few times, and I see nothing strange in this video.  How indoctrinated or bored must you be to post this video as “proof” Mike Pence is a homophobe?  Or does the poster not care about it being proof and just wanted to claim Pence is a homophobe?  I think this video would prove that he isn’t.  A true homophobe would have thrown a tantrum.

People just throw these negative labels out with such whim anymore.  To put this “label” of homophobic in perspective, have you ever been around someone scared of spiders?  Imagine If Pence suffered from arachnophobia and Sinema were a spider, do you think he’d be smiling and be able to act professionally?  The answer is no, he would be screaming and running away from her.

Law and Order: Social Justice Warriors

The latest season of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit started off with a two hour special.  The first half is about how a father is raping his son, and prosecuting him without the child’s testimony, and the father goes free.  The second half is about how the raped son’s anger is getting out of control and he shoots up his school.  There is always drama with the unit themselves, and in these episodes Amanda is pregnant and contemplating abortion, and Olivia is battling getting old and how it is affecting her work.

There are two scenes I want to point out.  The first is after the son was interviewed by a psychiatrist, the quote I find virtue signaling goes like, “This is not rocket science, he grew up in a household with a very traditional view of masculinity, taken to the extreme.  Like a… type of toxicity”.  The problem I have with this, is there is a big push from social justice warriors to add a taboo to masculinity.  I can’t help but see a correlation between this generations lack of masculinity and the high depression/suicide rates among men.  Here is a little propaganda about the issue.

Who exactly is pressuring these children to act “hyper-masculine”?  Culture?  Our culture is teaching our boys to become woman.  Boys need to be medicated for school at a much higher rate than girls.  Girls are more adept at the way our schools are organized than boys, so our boys get drugged up and are told their natural feelings of masculinity is wrong and needs to be suppressed.  Dr.  Jordan Peterson tackles it a little in this clip, and his take on this hits the problem right on the head.

The second scene has Amanda and Olivia debating the second amendment and abortion.  Olivia says only one of them kills, referring the the second amendment, and Amanda replies with “In Georgia, they both kill”.  I’m not shy about believing abortion is killing babies.  The most persuading thing I heard came from Ben Shapiro, he and a student were talking about how a person in a coma has the potential to become sentient again, and leaving a fetus to it’s own devices has the potential to become sentient, but we would kill the fetus and not the person in the coma.  I found this interesting because the person in the coma has a life he/she can be judged on, and even if they were a terrible human, we wouldn’t kill them.  The fetus hasn’t even gotten that chance yet.  Anyway, Olivia shows her true colors that she is anti second amendment and sort of pro abortion.  At the end of their conversation, Olivia starts lecturing Amanda about the regret of having an abortion, and Amanda makes the claim that Olivia has had one.  Olivia gives her a stare and walks away.  I have many many many issues with this part.  Olivia basically tells Amanda it’s okay to have an abortion, but warns there is a high cost of regret.  This is very different from the Olivia of the past.  At no point in the series 20 seasons, have they ever even hinted at Olivia having an abortion.  Considering there were like 5 seasons she was trying to become a mother, this just tears her character apart.

Then there is the anti second amendment talk.  I’m only going to give one important point to this anti second amendment part.  How does my right to own a gun cause people to die?  People will do evil things regardless of what tools they have.  The gun debate is long and detailed, but that’s the biggest point that makes me support it.  What better equalizer is there if someone larger than me attacks me?

Sorry if my rant today is more about venting than philosophy.  But I felt this stuff was important to get out.  I’ve been an avid consumer of the Law and Order shows, and this really disappointed me with the way it was handled.

Propaganda is Everywhere

Vox.com is a “news” outlet. They are also propaganda, there are loads and loads of Vox debunking videos on YouTube. This is one of their latest propaganda

It’s so steeped in crap, they actually wrote a debunking article of a debunking video that debunks their original article. I’ve watched too many Ben Shapiro, Milo Yianopolis and Jordan Peterson videos to know that free speech on campus is dying. This is a long video, but it is worth the watch, and just by being online proves my point that they are just spewing propaganda.

Typically they move the speech somewhere that doesn’t fit many people and/or off campus. It’s depressing colleges are like this, they are supposed to be THE place to be to exchange ideas, but instead now they just pander and make “safe spaces”. Colleges are like a dead corpse, whats left at campuses are the hair and nails that keep growing.

Keep thinking for yourself, and be aware of the propaganda around you. It’s everywhere!
