Donald Trump recently defended due process on Twitter.
Trump’s defense of due process is very weak. That’s because he says “some [allegations] are true”. While that tecnically could be true, the problem is that the women and manginas who have declared war on due process will not be swayed by attempts to meet in the middle. They will consider Trump’s charity and reasonableness to be weakness on which they can pounce. Trump is so used to the idea that he is a great negoitatior that he is (possibly without realizing it) negoitating away due process. Also, we should not forget that Trump called for the death penalty for the Central Park 5 even after their convictions were overturned due to DNA evidence.
The sad thing about this is that Trump is now the strongest defender of due process among public figures with this weak defense of due process. Other politicians are folding like a cheap suit in the face of nonsense accusations from women such as when Al Fraken resigned from the Senate. And it’s not just elected officals. The manginas at Reason, a Libertarian publication, decided to attack Trump for defending due process even though they had to shred every Libertarian principle they claim to believe in and cherish.
Trump’s defense of due process is weak, but he is better than anyone else in the public sphere because he actually defended due process.
With all the false rape and false sexual harassment accusations out there such as the #MeToo movement and it being Christmas soon, how long will it be until Santa is falsely accused of sexual harassment or rape? I am not joking. Facts like Santa not exististing will not stop women from saying that Santa groped them or that Santa raped them.
There are already women saying that girls sitting on Santa’s lap leads to women getting raped. (Boys also sit on Santa’s lap but that fact is conviently left out.) Rubbish like that is a small step to women making false accusations against Santa. Listen and believe is going to take on a new dimension.
I found the like above by coming with a totally insane idea, women falsely accusing Santa, a mythical person, of raping them. Then I did a google search. That was enough.
Next Easter, I’m sure women will be falsely accusing the Easter bunny of raping them. That will be followed by women making false accusations of rape against mythical gods like Zeus.
Andrea Ramsey, a Democrat who was going to run for Congress, was forced to drop out of the race because she was accused of sexually harassing a man. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) refused to support Ramsey’s campaign because of the sexual harassment accusation. This is not a joke. This has actually happened.
It gets even better when you read what Ramsey said about this.
“In its rush to claim the high ground in our roiling national conversation about harassment, the Democratic Party has implemented a zero tolerance standard. For me, that means a vindictive, terminated employee’s false allegations are enough for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to decide not to support our promising campaign. We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process.”
No one heard Ramsey talk about “careful analysis” when Al Franken was forced to resign.
No one heard Ramsey talk about “nuance” when Garrison Keillor was thrown into a 1984 style memory hole for an accident.
No one heard Ramsey talk about “due process” when Trump was (and still is) being falsely accused of sexual assault or when Emily Lindin said that it would be necessary for innocent men to lose their jobs due to false accusations of sexual assault and harassment to “fight the patriarchy”.
Instead of whining about it, Ramsey could try to take some action. She could support some Republican candidates for Congress or perhaps even run as one herself. Or she could try suing the DCCC. At a minimum the Democrats aren’t applying the same standard to all of their elected representatives. Chuck Schumer has been accused of sexual harassment. Of course, it’s an incredibly obvious false accusation. However, that does not matter. The Democrats should force him to resign since that is the policy of the Democratic party now. Ramsey could claim that she is being discriminated against.
I am certain Ramsey will not do any of that or anything else to actually fight back. Like with mangina Al Franken she will decide that its more important for women that she falls on her sword. I will shed no tears for her even if she’s innocent. Like Franken, she’s getting exactly what she deserves for her refusal to fight.
Al Franken said the following in his speech announcing his resignation.
“Over the last few weeks, a number of women have come forward to talk about how they felt my actions had affected them. I was shocked. I was upset. But in responding to their claim, I also wanted to be respectful of that broader conversation. Because all women deserve to be heard and their experiences taken seriously. I think that was the right thing to do. I also think it gave some people the false impression that I was admitting to doing things that in fact I haven’t done. Some of the allegations against me are simply not true. Others I remember very differently.”
This can be shortened to “Listen and believe women except the women who are accusing me of groping them”. Obviously, this is inherently contradictory. Franken is trying to have it both ways, but he can’t. Either you don’t listen and believe women or Franken is guilty. Those are the only two options. This contradiction appears again later in his speech.
“I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party. But this decision is not about me. It’s about the people of Minnesota.”
If Franken is innocent then why should believe the women who accuse Trump and Moore? If we’re always supposed to believe women then Franken is guilty. Again, Franken can’t have it both ways. The reason why Trump is president and that Moore is likely to be in the Senate is not because they’re evil like Franken would have you believe. It’s because Trump and Moore both fought back, even if it was pretty minimal. Trump and Moore made a stand against the women accusing them instead of trying to promote two ideas that directly contradict each other.
Franken had two choices, commit mangina seppeku for women or fight back and defend himself (which would include fighting back against women in his own party who want him to resign). Franken chose mangina seppeku. I tend to think Franken is innocent (although we can’t discount the possiblity that Franken is Hugo Schwyzer lite) so this is really something that could be found in 1984 by George Orwell. It’s reminiscent of Winston Smith changing historical records when someone fell out of favor with the Party. Since Franken is not living in the world of 1984, he had a choice. Franken could have chosen facts over lies that benefitted his party, but he did not because he is a mangina feminist. If Franken is innocent, I still have no sympathy for him because he did not have to be a case study in gynocentric orwellianism. Franken could have chosen facts over gynocentric orwellianism, but he decided being a mangina was more important.
As we know women make a lot of false accusations whether it’s about rape, sexual harassment, or lots of other things. When they get caught making false accusations, they (and their mangina defenders) often will use the excuse that they were just trying to start a conversation (or dialogue or discussion). Obviously, it’s bullshit, but that doesn’t stop others from using the same excuse, namely conspiracy theorists. For example, Smultronstället said this.
I guess it is because of this that I still have kind of a soft spot in my heart for Alex Jones. Because these infowars-guys … say what you want about them, but at least they recognized that they were ruled by people who had different INTERESTS, who were not simply misinformed but malicious.
Let’s remember the context of this. Alex Jones has falsely accused a lot of men of raping and sexually abusing children. (This is something we see every conspiracy theorist do.) PizzaGate is one of the biggest examples, but far from the only one. The Chobani corporation is suing Alex Jones because Jones falsely accused Chobani and its owner facilitating the rape and sexual abuse of children. Raping or sexually abusing children is one of the most vile crimes in existence. Falsely accusing someone of that crime is equally as vile. Yet, conspiracy theorists like Smultronstället defend this by saying that at least Alex Jones started a conversation about how the “ruling class” having different interests than the rest of the population. Putting aside that the issue of whether the “ruling class” has different interests to the rest of the population is more complex than that, it is clear that the nearly all of “ruling class” has no interest in raping and sexually abusing children, just like everyone else.
Just as both women and conspiracy theorists expect us to “listen and believe”, both groups think it is perfectly acceptable to falsely accuse men of the most vile of crimes. In fact, the false accusations that women and conspiracy theorists make are practically the same. The only difference is whether men are falsely accused of raping women or of raping children. Since they’re so similar it’s not a surprise that when caught by their lies, they both use the excuse that they were just trying to “start a conversation”.
Alex Jones was one of the conspiracy theorist morons promoting PizzaGate. (PizzaGate was the false accusation that Comet Pizza in DC was child sex abuse ring for the Democrats.) A few days ago, Alex Jones “apologized” for promoting PizzaGate. Why did Alex Jones issue an “apology” for PizzaGate? It has to be the first time he has ever done so. It is because he was about to run into real legal trouble. The day he “apologized” was the last day he could “apologize” for PizzaGate and not be sued for libel under Texas law.
In other words, Alex Jones is a coward if he actually believes in conspiracy theory. Regardless Alex Jones proved that conspiracy theory is bullshit since this is just an example of how conspiracy theorists won’t stand up for their beliefs if they run into any real trouble. (What else can you expect from a man who was against government surveillance but then changed his mind as long as Trump was in charge?) It gets in the way of their scams selling “male enhancement” products and other garbage.
We have been talking a lot lately about the Cultural Marxism/Frankfurt School conspiracy theory. With this conspiracy theory, there is a lack of original references about cultural marxism from the Frankfurt School’s own texts. (This is common in a lot of conspiracy theories besides the cultural marxism conspiracy theory.) If you want to know what happens when you ask for an original source reference from cultural marxism conspiracy theorists, take a look at what happened when Boxer tried asked for a original source reference on the subject. (This was after another person who tried to pass off a youtube video as “proof” of the cultural marxism conspiracy theory which didn’t reference any original sources.)
Boxer, knock off the faux-scepticism. The Frankfurt School’s influence on Cultural Marxism is undeniable. They literally *invented the term*; they talk about it in their papers. The idea that it’s a conspiracy theory is Leftist whitewashing, and an attempt at covering their tracks to delude the masses.
Boxer then asks for the specific source where the Frankfurt School invented the term, “cultural marxism”. After that the conspiracy theorists do nothing but throw links at Boxer that have no references to any original source material and attack Boxer for asking for references to original source material. Boxer describes what is happening with an excellent analogy.
Citing sources that you’ve never read is a problem, no? It’d be like arguing that the author of Dalrock blog is a misogynist who has written articles on his blog encouraging men to play grab-ass with random chicks on the street. When (and it’d be when, not if) the claimant was asked for a source, he’d post links to Amanda Marcotte and Manboobz, who made that claim.
The problem with all these conspiracy theories is that the sources are mostly online, free for anyone to read. You’re going to run into people like me, who have read them all and written peer-reviewed journal articles on the original sources, who will have to say “he’s an internet kook” when people wonder where you’re pulling all this nonsense from. Sadly, it makes everything else you say suspect.
Whenever you ask a conspiracy theorist for a reference to original source material, they will almost never provide it. Instead they will give you youtube videos and other links that provide no references to original source material. They love youtube videos because they are trying to hide the fact that what they are saying has no connection to original source material. In the rare cases, you get a reference to a piece of original source material, one of two things will happen. Either the original source material never existed, or the original source material says something completely different.
Boxer makes an apt comparison to feminism. Feminists want you to “listen and believe” instead of investigating and evaluating evidence. Conspiracy theorists want you to “listen and believe” instead of investigating and evaluating evidence, too. This is another example of how feminism and conspiracy theory is similar. Never listen and believe. Always demand evidence and original source material. If someone whether a feminist or a conspiracy theorist refuses to produce references to original source material or produces false references to original source material, assume they are lying because most likely, they are.
