Seems like a good day for a musical interlude, and this seems like a good choice for today…

Pat Condell: “Feminist Whores for Islam”

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Once again, Pat Condell brings the wood to the logic-defying spectacle of radical feminist apologists for fundamentalist Islam.

Some samples:

If, like me, you want to live in a world where men and women are completely equal, not just in theory but in actual practice, then you’d better get used to being called a racist by women who call themselves feminists. Progressive feminists, to be precise, or third wave feminists, as they’re sometimes known. Personally, I’m happy to be called any number of ugly names if it helps to draw attention in some small way to the glaring fact that progressive feminists are traitors to their gender. It’s entirely thanks to their poisonous influence that when it comes to Islam the words “feminist” and “hypocrite” go together as seamlessly as the words “dickless” and “jihad.”

Snip.

The number one rule of progressive feminism is that you never draw any kind of attention to the plight of women in the Muslim world being abused and persecuted every day by Muslim men. Being forcibly married, being punished for being raped. And whatever you do, don’t mention the thousand women a year in Pakistan who are murdered by members of their own family.

Snip.

The progressive sell-out to Islamic misogyny has been so total, we’re witnessing the death of feminism. There’s now such a complete lack of credibility, nobody takes it seriously any more. Feminism is now seen as merely a playpen for crybabies and bullies. Censorious small-minded safe-space harpies who hate being women, and who want everyone else to compensate them for it. And they’re such incorrigible whores to Islam, especially to Muslim men. They defer to them so eagerly on women’s rights, as if they have an unhealthy desire to be dominated by Muslim men.

Watch the whole thing.

Enjoy this traditional Easter offering of a .50 BMG round vs. a long row of Peeps. It’s hardly a fair fight…

Scott Adams Says This Anti-Trump Ad Backfires

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

So an anti-Trump group put together an ad consisting of women reading the mean/stupid thing Donald Trump has said about women:

Says Scott Adams:

Have you seen the anti-Trump video that features women quoting Donald Trump’s most offensive statements about women?

I just showed it to a woman. She thought it was funny. Apparently nothing that Trump says comes off as offensive to her.

The reason I checked with a woman is because I didn’t trust my own reaction. To me, the video looked like the most tone-deaf ad of all time. I would rank it as among the worst I have ever seen in terms of persuasion. I’m guessing it worked in Trump’s favor.

On the 2D level of reality – where we pretend people are rational – the video makes perfect sense. The makers of the video figured women voters would not like a candidate that says bad things about women. That seems totally logical. I can see why they made the video.

But on the 3D level of persuasion, what the viewer sees is several average-looking women in bad moods complaining about a guy being, well… a guy. I assume men won’t be offended by the video because Trump is no more of a jerk than most men. And men probably don’t get a warm feeling from the judgmental, angry messengers in the video. That video looks like a huge fail to me.

While I’m not on-board with Adams’ “people are just moist robots” thesis, I think he’s right about this video.

“Oh look, Reginald! That uncouth vulgarian is distressing his class betters again!”

“Shocking, Eleanor, simply shocking!” (drops monocle)

The ad ignores the reality that a great deal of Trump’s appeal is his willingness to transgress against the unspoken shibboleths of the overclass. People are voting Trump because they can’t punch an NPR host in their smug face over the radio.

When a whole bunch of dour middle-aged feminist scolds (which is what it comes off as) read Trump quotes in the manner of “celebrities read mean tweets,” the result is laughter, not outrage. The real tone of the ad is “We know better than you, and Trump offends our finely-tuned sensibilities! Doesn’t our naked contempt dissuade you from voting Trump, you dim-witted flyover country rubes?”

No wonder they disabled video comments on YouTube.

So the Our Principles PAC (headed up by ex-Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush staff) should stop running this thing, as it’s only helping Trump.

And that Princess Di quote is pure comedy gold…

“They don’t like to talk about Muslim sex crime”

Saturday, February 6th, 2016

Pat Condell speaks his mind on Cologne and other mass incidents of Muslim men committing sex crimes,

That “99% of women in Egypt have been physically molested” stat is shocking enough that I went looking for evidence of it, and this was evidently Condell’s source. It says that 99% have been sexual harassed, but a mere “96.5 percent of the women who’d been harassed said they’d been physically assaulted.” So Condell’s stat is slightly off, but the percentage is still staggering, assuming the UN report is accurate…

“Let me please reintroduce myself…”

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

“…I’m a woman of wealth and taste…”

Hillary, you don’t need to reintroduce yourself. The problem isn’t that we don’t know who you are. The problem is that we do know who you are, and entirely too well…

Snowball Machine Gun

It would be awesome to have one of these, if I ever lived in a state that got snow on a regular basis:

Unfortunately, this design does nothing to alleviate the tedious snowball creation process…

.50 BMG vs. Printer Paper Reams

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016

Here’s a little Saturday video showing how many reams of paper it takes to stop a .50 BMG round:

And it’s not necessarily conclusive, since both bullets started skewing in the second box of paper…
