Contrarianism – Why the Grammy’s was the epitome of Liberal fallacies

Millennials are always playing sensible and completely age-appropriate games nowadays, such as “The floor is lava!” and “Let’s all eat Tide Pods!”, however, they normally last about as long as a Millennial doing manual labour; soon to be replaced by yet another completely grown-up and safe trend.

Keep an eye out for “How long can you keep your hand in the garbage disposal – when it’s switched on?!” any day now…

The game that is currently being played by these little work-shy fops; what I call “The Contrarian Olympics”, is something a little different however. This one has been being played for quite a while now; and there’s no sign of it fizzling out anytime soon. In fact, it’s getting more popular by the day.

Basically, the premise of the game is to take a universally held fact; for instance, that men and women are different in almost every aspect, and then completely flip it on it’s head until it becomes the exact polar opposite. Then, you have to convince people that they have been wrong all along not to believe what you’re saying. This can be achieved in many ways, but the most popular way is to simply call the person racist (even if race is not even involved) and just watch how quickly they’ll believe you! They’ll be marching by your side, placard in hand and shouting to the rooftops about why it’s so important to: “fry pigs in blankets like bacon”.

Like I said earlier, Liberals have been playing Contrarian Olympics for quite some time now, and The Grammy Awards 2018 was a shining example of this.

Riding the crimson wave of the #MeToo and #Timesup movements, the Grammy’s was dubbed as being one of the pinnacles of the “non-white, non-male-dominated”, liberal-soaked, awards carnivals. It was supposed to show that love and respect for women, and people of any other colour than white, were characteristics only shown by people who are on the left of the political and social spectrums.

And it failed spectacularly. Here’s a few reasons why the Grammy’s failed, simply by playing “Contrarian Olympics”:

1) Jay-Z is an “ally” of the oppressed; a champion of women’s rights and a seeker of equality through peace and civility. We should follow his example.

In reality:

Jay-Z once stabbed a man; had a physical fight with his sister-in-law; cheated on his wife; raps about bitches, hoes and faggots; is “all about da bling” (he covets money and riches you dumb-old white guys..) and used to be a drug dealer.

But yeah, let’s look up to him eh?

2) Men are not the focus of the awards tonight; women’s voices have been ignored for too long and tonight is about celebrating them. Women WILL be heard and women WILL be justly rewarded for their work.

In reality:

Out of the 28 main categories, only 1 was won by a woman.

Yeeeaahhh…..

3) Women are more than just sex-objects, and should NOT be objectified in the slightest. We are more than just pieces of meat to be used to sell products.

In reality:

Rihanna; who likes to sing songs about how excited she gets when she sees whips and chains, turned up in a very revealing dress and started hip-thrusting towards Dj Khaled in a “I want you and all of the people watching to dream about having sex with me” – kind of a way.

Oh, and please buy her new record.

But don’t you DARE objectify her.

4) The Grammy’s 2018 is going to show the entire world that our voices will be heard and that we are reaching out to every corner of the globe to spread our message.

In reality:

The Grammy’s 2018 had the lowest ratings of all time, down by 20% from the previous year.

It’s almost as if people don’t want to hear a certain narrative…

In the end, The Grammy’s was a complete and utter failure. Not that any Liberal will tell you that themselves though. Remember; Liberals tend to ignore facts to ensure their own version of events take precedence, and that’s why it’s so important not to get caught up in playing Contrarian Olympics. Just like playing “catch the flaming chainsaw” or “wear a meat-suit while in lion’s cage“; playing Contrarian Olympics will only end in tears.

Facts speak louder than fallacies.

Remember the sky is NOT green and the grass is NOT blue.

Mark Salling – co-stars and fans mourn the death of a paedophile

Yes, you’ve read that headline correctly, cast members and fans alike are mourning the death of known paedophile and former Glee star, Mark Salling.

I’ll say that again: People are mourning the death of a KNOWN PAEDOPHILE.

Salling, who died from a suspected suicide, (though as of the time of writing, this could not be confirmed) was charged in 2015 with possessing and downloading over 50,000 indecent images of children. Pleading guilty to the charges, and facing up to seven years in jail, Salling was due to be sentenced in March of this year after having signed the sex offenders register and entering a “treatment program”.

Because as we all know, being a raging paedophile can be cured…

To me, Mark Salling’s family should be the only ones mourning his death, and even then; the mourning should be primarily about the fact that he died a monster. The fact that former cast members, and fans galore have been mourning his loss is absolutely perplexing to me.

Take this tweet by Matthew Morrison, Salling’s former cast-mate:

Mark Salling, Matthew Morrison

Morrison, who has since deleted the “moving” tribute to his late co-star, certainly isn’t the only person mourning the loss of a convicted paedophile. Scores of fans have been posting their own moving tributes to Salling; all while fully aware of the sick star’s horrific crimes, yet showing no sign of caring.

While I won’t post links or pictures of the tributes in here (due to the ages of the  majority of the posters) I can assure you they are there. Just type in “Mark Salling tributes” in the search bar of Twitter, and you’ll see plenty of posts showing “compassion” and “sadness”.

Thankfully, you’ll also see plenty of condemnation.

Another of Salling’s co-stars – Jane Lynch, was interviewed regarding his death, and while not as fawning as Morrison’s tribute, her response was that of someone remembering the life of an old friend; one who has died from natural causes after living a fulfilling and honourable life. In fact, the closest that Lynch comes to calling out Salling for his heinous crimes is this quote:

“It’s been tough. He was a troubled, troubled guy, and he always was..”

Hardly a damning condemnation eh?

The link to the article in E! News is here: http://www.eonline.com/news/910943/jane-lynch-says-mark-salling-lived-a-troubled-life

We all know someone who – “can get you things at a bargain price, so long as you don’t ask where it came from!”

We all know someone who was a “bit of a rogue” in their younger days.

These are the kind of people you can learn to forgive; people who have made mistakes, simply out of desperation or foolhardiness, but who have managed to changed their ways and move on as a person. While they may have caused harm to people, it hasn’t been the kind of lasting harm that effects people for the rest of their lives.

A convicted paedophile however, isn’t someone who can be forgiven.

There are just some lines that can’t be crossed, and along with murdering a child, paedophilia is at the top of the list.

Hollywood has an unsavoury history of ignoring the horrific crimes of some of it’s stars, and it’s always in order to pay tribute to the perpetrators “artistic merit” (see post Roman Polanski won’t be charged with molesting a ten year old)

It’s high time that people; particularly those in Hollywood, stopped paying tribute to monsters like Mark Salling, and remembered him for what he really was:

A paedophile who helped to permanently destroy the lives of innocent children.

If there’s any tributes to be made, make them to the 50,000 victims of Mark Salling’s sick fantasies.

Roman Polanski won’t be charged with molesting a ten year old

This is a rallying call to Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey and all of the #MeToo and #Timesup movements!

Get out your black dresses, dust off your “Time’s up” badges and drag out a victim of abuse to attach to your hip like a designer handbag (to show how much you REALLY care)

It’s time to go to WAR!

anigif_enhanced-buzz-13393-1424662115-34

According to The Guardian (see link here) the Hollywood Elite’s favourite degenerate Director won’t be charged with allegedly assaulting a 10 year old girl in 1975 during a photoshoot in which he made the girl pose nude, after which he (again, allegedly) abused her.

Normally, when someone is said to have “allegedly” assaulted another person, I immediately call for due-process in order for guilt, or a lack of, to be found in a fair and just way.

That is still true with Mr. Polanski in this case.

However…

In 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. He subsequently pled guilty to the charge of statutory rape. He was released from prison after serving 42 days, and as part of an apparent plea bargain, was to be put on probation. When he learned that the judge had changed his mind and planned to reject the plea bargain, he fled to Paris before sentencing.

Quoted from Wikipedia

He admitted, plead guilty, was charged, and was put in prison for drugging and raping another girl; this time a 13-year-old.

He then fled.

Sorry Roman, but you’re looking pretty guilty to me son.

Certainly a lot more than some of the celebrities who have been taken down by the #MeToo movement, and for a lot less than the child-molesting exploits of Polanski.

So, Ladies, this is your chance!

After years of:

giving standing ovations,

signing petitions demanding he be released from detention in Zurich

and singing the praises of an “alleged” Kiddie-fiddler for decades

(all while knowing of Polanski’s guilt), it’s time to disavow. March down to the offices of the Los Angeles DA (obviously stopping along the way for photo opportunities) and demand that they ignore the statute of limitations and lock his ass up!

#Timesup Roman.

Surely now, after so many victims have come forward in Hollywood. After all of the rhetoric. After the #MeToo and the #Timesup movements standing up and demanding an end to the abuse of women; surely NOW is the time to finally stop looking the other way and forgiving Polanski for his crimes. NOW is the time to treat him exactly like you’ve treat the rest of the sexual abusers in Hollywood.

#Timesup Hollywood.

Isn’t it?

The Golden Globes – uninviting the REAL victims

Rose McGowan. Mira Sorvino. Asia Argento. Daryl Hannah. Rosanna Arquette. Annabella Sciorra.

All women who were abused and assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.

All women who have had their careers either set-back or stalled completely because of Weinstein.

All women who suffered at the hands of a vile, power-mad rapist.

And, all women who were allegedly not invited to the Golden Globes 2018 as part of the #Timesup movement.

According to a Tweet by Rosanna Arquette, she and the above named victims of Weinstein weren’t asked to appear at the event or even to comment on the #Timesup movement itself. You’d have thought Rose McGowan would have at least been invited, (being the one who first brought to light the heinous actions of Harvey Weinstein) if not mentioned somewhere in the evening; but alas, no.

McGowan’s public fall-out with Meryl Streep is reason enough for her to be uninvited, in order to stop her stealing Streep’s spotlight. Meryl is in “Damage control mode” at the moment after the whole #Sheknew movement began, highlighting the fact that she claims she knew nothing of Weinstein’s behaviour prior to McGowan’s statements about her ordeal. Add to that the fact that she was more than happy to clap and cheer for known rapist and peadophile Roman Polanski, when it’s quite clear that he is guilty of his crimes, is hypocrisy at it’s finest. Streep, who is seen by most on the Liberal side of the scale as a shining beacon of righteousness, is at the heart of this movement in order to cover for her own failings. By having McGowan, who has slammed Streep for not noticing Weinstein’s past behaviour, as a voice of the #Timesup movement would be a catastrophic move, potentially exposing Streep’s hypocrisy to the point that the Liberal idiots who are blatantly ignoring it, would not be able to do so further.

metoo-2859980_960_720

Although Weinstein’s actions were certainly at the heart of the #Metoo and #Timesup movements, he certainly wasn’t the only person in Hollywood using his power to abuse people. There are supposedly untold numbers of abusers in Hollywood, and a countless number of victims left in their wake. Every single one of them need to be exposed and pay for their crimes, just as each and every victim deserves any help and support that can be offered.

Their voices need to be heard, and yet they were so obviously missing from the red carpet.

Why?

Because this entire event wasn’t just about exposing sexual abuse in Hollywood. It was never just about that.

The main point of it was to act as one big Feminist outreach program; a chance for women to “have their moment in the spotlight” and “take charge”, while riding a tidal-wave of virtue-signalling and hypocrisy.

And it was all built on the back of the suffering of REAL victims.

How do I know this?

Well, instead of having Queen Oprah (Yassssss! Queen!) giving her first inaugural speech as President-elect, or Connie Britton wearing a $400 sweater saying “poverty is sexist” in a non-ironic manner, or Debra Messing calling out E! for the Catt Sadler “pay-gap debacle”, surely they should have had the ACTUAL victims of misogyny and abuse stood out on the red carpet?

And not just the female victims that they failed to invite: what about the male victims of abuse? Lord knows there are plenty of them (though you’d be hard-pressed to actually find a cover story about them…).

Don’t get me wrong; I know you all made it quite clear that it was “time for men to step back and listen”, but in the name of EQUALITY, which, after all, is what Feminism is really all about, (according to any theoretical Feminist anyway) you could have brought out the uninvited women alongside other victims of Hollywood sexual abuse and exploitation. MALE ones, such as Terry Crews, and Anthony Rapp, and Corey Feldman. There could have been a huge picture of Corey Haim hung inside and outside the venue in order to remember and honour another victim of misogyny. Then, you could have all gathered in front of these people, these REAL victims and REAL Heroes, and knelt at their feet; knelt in front of them and chanted in one true voice:

“WE’RE SORRY! WE KNEW! WE ALL KNEW! AND WE LET IT HAPPEN!”

You’d be lucky if you could find more than 5 or 6 people out of the entire guest-list of the Golden Globes who didn’t actually know anything about the actions of Harvey Weinstein, or any of the sexual abusers in Hollywood. They knew, and they didn’t say anything because they couldn’t possibly risk losing any of the power they themselves had attained. Their careers, their money and their influence were and are far more important to them than actually exposing the people who afforded them it in the first place.

Harvey Weinstein was outed for what he really was and that was the opportune moment for these sycophantic morons to be able to prove that they do care and that they are virtuous people who only have your interests at heart.

At the Golden Globes their masks slipped off, exposing them as the power hungry, enabling frauds they really are.

Never forget this:

Meryl Streep and the Hollywood Hypocrisy – #Sheknew

The Hollywood sex scandal certainly isn’t going away anytime soon.

And neither should it.

It has however, been injected with another talking point: #Sheknew

Aimed at Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep, the #Sheknew campaign is a series of posters spread around Hollywood depicting Meryl Streep and Harvey Weinstein with the Phrase “She knew” plastered over Meryl’s face.

Personally, I don’t think she should be on that poster.

I’ll explain why.

For those of you who don’t already know; Meryl Streep is a long-time friend to Harvey Weinstein and denies ever knowing ANYTHING about his years of abusing women. A fact that many, including actress Rose McGowan (who claims that Weinstein raped her), simply do not believe.

Normally, I would be the first person to say innocent until proven guilty (read my post The problem with Linda Sarsour and Lena Dunham). However, if you look closely at this case, it becomes more and more clear that it would be pretty much impossible for Streep NOT to know about Weinstein’s behaviour.

Harvey_Weinstein_Césars_2014_(cropped)

Harvey Weinstein’s behaviour was undoubtedly the worst kept secret in Hollywood. Practically EVERYBODY in Hollywood knew a story about him or at the least, knew somebody who did. The very fact that Streep was friends and colleagues with Weinstein for a number of years is, some would say, evidence enough that she must have at least suspected something. Arguably the greatest Actress in the last 30 or so years, she will no doubt have contacts ranging from all aspects of the movie and political worlds in which Weinstein was well-known and feared. Somebody must have said something to her at some point. A little whisper here. A little word in the ear there.

Hollywood is full of people who can’t keep secrets, and knowing something as explosive as the Weinstein scandal is too much not to at least tell a fellow Hollywood alumni if not the press.

However, speculation can only get you so far. I’d be a hypocrite if I didn’t say that Meryl Streep doesn’t at least deserve the right of due-process to be able to “clear her name” in all of this. The evidence against her knowing about Weinstein’s behaviour is pretty substantial, yet I think the whole truth of the matter will never see the light of day. It’s easy to say “Of course she knew! She must have!” simply because she was friends with the guy. But throw in the fact that she is without a doubt the most famous and well-connected actress in Hollywood, and you really do have to ask: “How could she not know?”

Finally, to single out Meryl Streep alone is perhaps a tad unfair.

I understand why some people have; some see her as the ultimate hypocrite: the rich, privileged global superstar who portrays herself to be the moral conscience of “the people”, the epitome of all that is good and fair and just; all the while telling us, the lowly proles that we are how we should live our lives better. How to give more. Who to vote for. Who we should revere and condemn.

All while buddying up to people like Harvey Weinstein.

Like I say though: she needs due process. There’s no proof, just conjecture that she had any idea how much of a monster Harvey Weinstein really is.

And then I remember someone else she’s spoken up for.

Someone else she has applauded and lavished praise and admiration on.

Somebody who, she does know is guilty of being a monster. A rapist. Even a paedophile. We know that she knows he’s guilty.

Of drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl.

Roman Polanski.

The crimes of this man are beyond abhorrent. And we all know they are true.

Meryl Streep knows they are true, yet still applauds and congratulates the man for his accomplishments in Hollywood.

THAT is the true reason I believe most people believe she knew the truth about Harvey all along. It’s not the first time she has done it.

I’m going to end this piece by saying this:

I still don’t think it should be Meryl Streep on that poster.

It should be all of them.

The whole damn lot of them.

From the make-up artists, to the grips, the camera operators to the actors, the directors to the producers. Brad Pitt. Hilary Clinton. Donald Trump. Barack Obama.

They all knew. Every single last one of them knew and yet; they did nothing.

Nothing.

Nobody was willing to stand up and risk their way of life, their position amongst the elite. They all had too much to lose by way of association.

That was proven the moment Rose McGowan finally broke her silence and was then cast aside like a traitor.

They all knew. And trust me, that’s not all they know. But until someone puts them all in a position where they HAVE to condemn someone, you’ll be the last ones to know.

#Sheknew?

How about #Theyknew?

The problem with Linda Sarsour and Lena Dunham

Oh what a couple of months it’s been! From Harvey Weinstein to Al Franken, it’s been a rough time if you’re a sex pest.

The current Feminist movement has categorically told us all that we MUST believe ALL women who cite that they have been sexually assaulted.

ALL OF THE TIME.

No due process.

No chance to face your accuser.

No way to tell your side of the story.

If a woman says you assaulted her, then goddammit you did it.

Take this quote from Emily Linden, a columnist with Teen Vogue magazine –

“Here’s an unpopular opinion: I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations.”

and this again, from Linden –
“Sorry. If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.”

(Good job that she’s willing to pay the price eh?)

An extreme view from an extreme ideology. Yet, it sets the tone for how most Feminists think. It’s an absolute; a way of thinking that is at the very least, consistent.

Basically, if a woman claims assault, she is to be believed. No matter what.

Which leads me to Linda Sarsour.

Linda-Sarsour-796x1024

Asmi Fathelbab, a former contractor who worked for Sarsour, claimed that a male co-worker sexually assaulted her numerous times. Sarsour, a “Champion of Womens’ rights” (and not a wolf in sheeps clothing at all…) didn’t believe Asmi. In fact, according to The Daily Caller (link to article here http://dailycaller.com/2017/12/17/linda-sarsour-accused-of-enabling-sexual-assault-against-woman-who-worked-for-her/) she body-shamed her and called her a liar.

Well!

This certainly is not the kind of behaviour we expect from our group-thinking, blanket statement making Feminists is it? Asmi should be believed shouldn’t she?

Don’t get me wrong, Linda Sarsour isn’t the only Feminist to act like this. Our very own favourite attention-seeker Lena Dunham, who claims that “women don’t lie about being raped”, defended one of her very own friends Murray Miller, against a claim of assault from actress Aurora Perrineau. Dunham later apologised, albeit rather half-heartedly.

But here’s my point:

Why apologise? Was there a chance he might have done it after all?

Why disbelieve Asmi Fathelbab? Is there a chance she was lying?

Yes and yes.

By making blanket statements such as “women don’t lie about rape” and “all women should be believed ALL of the time” destroys any chance of fairness to both victims of assault and those that are accused of it.

Firstly, those who are accused get absolutely NO due-process. In what other situation would we believe an accuser without investigating it first?

Secondly, the more that these sorts of things happen, the more that accusers are believed unconditionally, the more diluted the response to real victims every time an accusation is deemed to be false.

I’ve no doubt that MOST accusers are telling the truth. But to say ALL without any sort of investigation or presumption of innocence isn’t fair to anyone.

Linda. Lena.

You were prepared to believe ALL women before someone accused somebody you know. Your hypocrisy is stunning.

The ONLY way to deal with these kind of situations is to treat every case as an individual. Blanket statements are beyond damaging to all concerned.

Just ask Liam Allen what happens when accusers are believed unconditionally.
