Modern Neo-Bolsheviks tend to give the game away with the first question. What Happens to #MeToo When a Feminist is the Accused? Well if MeToo was propelled by any neutral morality, then nothing different would happen whatsoever. The accused would be guilty, their career would be over, and prosecutors would be preparing their closing statements. Instead, the NYTs had to ask the question rather than answer it. And that’s more of a lewd reveal of their pantiless principles than they probably intended.
In this instance it was a male accuser and a female accused. That creates an uncomfortable tension in the left’s decision tree. Are accusers always right or are men always wrong? There’s only one way to know for certain: which of the two are heterosexual, conservative, or white gentiles? But here it was neither. Both of the warring grapplers were leftist homosex jews. This, paradoxically, put the NYTs commenters in the unusual position of debating facts, context, and logic rather than Hate and Nazis. I mean when both combatants occupy the identity apex, all you have left to discuss are irrelevancies like what actually happened.
In this case, I couldn’t give a shit less. When a mewling, effete, gay israeli academic protests the encroachment on his boy parts by a hideous fem yenta, my mind begins wondering how much better this trial would be on the bottom of the ocean. That’s selective indifference, which may or may not be worse than selective life ruination and incarceration. I really can’t say for sure.
Though there is a point this intra-ADL squabble does highlight. It is a point made in these pages routinely, and thus one I was startled to see printed in the Times’ august combox. It said this…
MeToo advocates need to decide if their cause is a moral one or a tribal one.
If it is moral, a universal principle, then they must be prepared to defend that principle even when it is inconvenient, even when the principle is being invoked by a member of a despised “out group”, and even (when necessary) against their own.
On the other hand, if MeToo was always just a tribal vehicle to promote favored sub-populations, they can hardly complain when others treat it with the disdain such tactics deserve.
That is except when those others are applying that precise critique to the left’s myriad other tribal vehicles, and so must incur the necessary invocation of Hitler.
What’s interesting is that the passage quoted above was the highest receiving “recommended” comment at the time it was read. Thus Times readers display a nascent capacity for objective thought, though not the inclination to extrapolate those thoughts to a practically identical premise.
Though that also is as meaningless to me as rutting communists. The salient point for our purposes is the same one unintentionally articulated by that Times commenter. Hate, Raysis, and Nazis are not and never have been principled positions in any of our lifetimes. They are only and always tribal vehicles. The purpose of which being to turn you into petroleum and your children into janissaries.
That means you, you relentlessly dull conservatives. The left doesn’t actually care about nazis, because there are no nazis. They care about destroying you. Your history, your culture, your traditions, your future, your family, you. That is their operational principle. Even their own are capable of recognizing it in other forms—and yet so many of you are not.
So stop bleating about not being racist to enemies who racially attack you. Stop believing that colluding monopolistic corporatism equals free enterprise. Stop believing that legal immigration won’t swamp you just the same. Stop applauding wildly wasteful military misadventures on behalf of Our Greatest Ally. And finally, stop thinking that a government instruction pamphlet is the basis of civil Western society. There’s only so many maladaptive mistakes a side can make before it is defeated with finality. No one is going to praise your virtues once that side is yours.
So I will appeal to each conservative using the same term of affection as the feminist philosophette did toward her aggrieved gimp: My Astounding and Beautiful Nimrod. Your charms are safe from me.
