SJWS say the darndest things

I'll start with this

It's sad I don't pearl clutch with the neo-bolshevik perspectives anymore in mainstream news


Sidebar:

Has the NRA called for more "pro-gun" representation in movies.... or has it called for more "pro market" representation (as in why should a group like the NRA care about spouting out cliche market terms as a gun organization while planned parenthood is talking about a left field issue to what it is like "trans representation")

I've noticed SJWism infiltrating film reviews. It used to be the case that anything approaching propagandistic works were condemned but now films are getting an easy ride because the message is "good". I have never read the book or seen the film but "A Wrinkle in Time" got an easy ride despite the reviewer saying it wasn't great because it provided empowerment and showed a white boy ask mullato girl whether he could trust her and she took him by the hand and said yes. Wow what great film making. Mandatory applause.

It's been reduced to calculated pandering to various interest groups with a view to flattering their egos as much as possible. I think its infiltration of film reviews started a while ago, though.

It was always there in light sprinkles since probably the 60's. But yes, it's probably cranked it up a few notches starting with "the last Jedi". The reviews are sometimes summed up as followed : "I'm a critic who doesn't like big budget action movie genres, including this, but I'm giving this a high rating and spewing progressive bromides in this article. If you criticize me, I'll say you hate babies and puppies".

I do remember it being pretty nuts at times when Bush was in office and you had people like Michael Moore getting way more respect then he was due . Maybe this is just what happens when you take the left's toys away, and we are just dealing with it in the age of the internet and a changed media and Hollywood culture.

the winning paragraph:

Most restaurants take pains to distance themselves from the brutalities of the slaughterhouse; Chick-fil-A invites us to go along with the Cows’ Schadenfreude. In the portraits at the Fulton Street restaurant, the Cows visit various New York landmarks. They’re in Central Park, where “eat mor chikin” has been mowed into the lawn. They’re glimpsing the Manhattan Bridge from Dumbo, where they’ve modified a stop sign: “stop eatin burgrz.” They’re on the subway, where the advertisements . . . you get the picture. The joke is that the Cows are out of place in New York—a winking acknowledgment that Chick-fil-A, too, does not quite belong here.

In other news: an entire order of monastics self-flagellate in front of their own church choirs in their own churches to demonstrate to the world how great, just, and holy they are. After which, they conduct an inquisition on their own unsuspecting benighted lay people to make those poor schmucks even greater and holier.

In other other news: Students riot and cause mass destruction and property damage in a university due to the university not being communist enough. The president of the university conceded to the demands after realizing the 19 year old students were right, he wasn't living up to his revolutionary potential. The president of the subsidized university then went on air to lecture the rubes of the outside world who are taxed to pay for the university how great the commies are, and how reactionary, stupid and evil the bourgeois taxpayers and parents are.

Are the Anglo-Saxons somewhat more prone to fall into mass religious fervors or it just looks like that's the case?

An aspect of Americans are for sure. I've made the comment before that if I ever saw a true ornery HL Mencken style American Atheist, I would shake his hand. They don't exist that much anymore among the younger generations. The British seem less apt to be zapped by the zeitgeist, but they still it it seems, and from my outsider perspective it seems more common than it was in the 00's and 90's. For people who I have lost traditional forms of religion, I think anywhere you see strong political fervor, it's probably somewhat "spiritual" in nature and origin.
