It’s another Friday night, and that means another edition of the Friday Night Fragments. We get into some crazy stuff this round. You might want to be high for this.
With that warning in place, let’s dive in.
Tonight’s edition of the fragments is brought to you by the Emma Sulkowicz (aka “Mattress Girl”) sex tape. I’d offer a quick recap and a review myself, but that would require that I actually watch the whole thing. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t try, but the first 30 seconds was more than sufficient to drive me sprinting from my laptop and towards the nearest shower.
However, it appears that some had stronger stomachs than I did. Notoriously fabulous journalist (and notable GamerGate figure) Milo Yiannopolous has his own review up, and it is nothing short of spectacular. It starts off like this:
In preparing for this review, my researcher had to watch Emma Sulkowicz, a.k.a. “Mattress Girl,” perform fellatio on an overweight man eleven times. He tells me that he is now seriously considering homosexuality.
…and it only gets better from there. Milo wields both the hammer and the shiv for this one. It is absolutely brutal, so needless to say it is great fun to read.
Gregory Cochran proposes the Iraqi government hire mercenaries to deal with their ISIS problem. I’ll admit I have a bit of a soft spot for mercenaries, and I have a bit of a knee-jerk reaction to support their usage in this brave new world that is emerging. This is, of course, an impulse worth tempering, because as Machiavelli pointed out, there are times when mercenaries are the worst of all possible options for increasing your military power. As such, I shall refrain from passing judgement in this case (with the exception of noting that the US government would never allow it), but the proposal is worth looking over.
Cochran even throws in a reference to The Ten Thousand, which makes for an oddly fitting analogy in this situation. Eerily fitting, really.
Steve Harris over at Amerika asks “What are SJWs“? He gives an answer that is contestable but also interesting in its own way: they are a potentially profitable demographic that demonstrates their holiness in part by buying clothing, trinkets and other merchandise that signal “correct opinions”. They are sheep to be fleeced, and there are many who seek to cultivate their flocks.
Does this answer run up against the common trope of SJWs as rent-seeking parasites? Possibly. Possibly not. There seem to be a tension, however, between the idea that SJWs have nothing to offer except holiness and the idea that they are a profitable demographic (though you will note that “being rent-seekers” and “having nothing to offer” are two different ideas, not two ways of saying the same thing).
The conception of SJWs as a shell company of sorts for wealth redistribution from productive citizens to corporate entities is, if nothing else, a very intriguing idea. Combine that with their (indirect) cries for greater political power to central entities in the name of fighting “-isms” and “-phobias” and you can see why they make for such great useful idiots. If I was wealthy and powerful, I too would be in support of the social justice warriors.
This is an idea that I think I deserves a fully fleshed-out post.
This week, I learned that both woman’s suffrage and income taxes were pushed forward by progressives as a way of making sure that they would have political and financial pieces in place to bring about Prohibition. If that isn’t an unpleasant thought, I don’t know what is.
If you ever doubt that SJWs are manical fanatics determined to take destroy anything good in the world, remember that the SJWs of 100 years ago foisted income taxes on you in order to pay the government to take your booze away from you.
Who doesn’t like swimming pools? Pools are pretty great. One problem though: they often require a lot of upkeep. Solution? Get a mob of teens to be rowdy and belligerent in a suburban residential area to provide cover while you take over a pool that isn’t yours. Make sure said teens are “oppressed” and “underprivileged”, because when they inevitably get in trouble, the full force of the media and the manufactured consensus of the country will come down like a hammer in support of them. We have to show those evil, oppressive white people who’s boss, after all.
You know, it’s almost like the media wants people with a modicum of intelligence to assume that blacks getting mistreated deserve it in order to provide cover for the elites as they continually foment discord in order to keep everyone distracted and inattentive as they channel ever greater amounts of money and power into their clutches.
Do blacks deserve it? It doesn’t really matter when it comes to the activities of the powers that be. Truth or lies don’t matter, power always finds a way. That’s how power works.
Finally, to close off this edition of the fragments, I have a confession to make. Thanks to the courageous examples of Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal, I feel strong enough to say this publicly for the first time.
I identity as trans-Caesar. I believe that I am the reincarnation of Julius Caesar, and it would be trans-phobic of you not to let me have sex with your wives, sisters, and daughters while I overthrow the Republic.
I’ve shared this with several close friends up to this point, and they all agree to support me in my dream, right up to the moment when I will be assassinated beneath the statue of Pompey. You have no idea how much my heart swells when I think of those who have been open enough and courageous enough to support me in my struggle. I would like to express my gratitude and love for all of you, especially those whose support was so strong and whose love was so great that you agreed to brutally murder me without hesitation and without a second thought. You inspire me to keep persisting in my struggle for acceptance, tolerance, supreme & uncontested power, and a metric fuckton of hot, adulterous sex.
