Re: Nick tilts at CPAC and Milo

Those lovely, lovely folks at CPAC invited Marion Le Pen to this year's conference. According to CPAC, being a warmed-over Nazi with a French accent now qualifies one as a "classical liberal." http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/cpac-told-those-criticizing-marion-le-pen-to-do-their-resea...

Re: Petty annoyances

Apologies for the triple post, but: forgot to mention Jeff is currently out at one of his meetups; when he gets back I'll ask him for more details.

Re: Petty annoyances

The more I think about it, the more disturbed by this I am. All I know for certain is: on the 15th there was a woman in the vicinity of my front door. Come to think of it, I don't even know this much for certain -- I'd assumed she must've been in front of my place, which is why my apartment number ...

I'm working on a blog post (which is different from an op-end in that blog posts are done for free, whereas op-eds are paid).

Re: Petty annoyances

That’s not all that shocking. They had information that it was a differently colored person so applied a simple exclusion test. Better than dragging everyone in for further questioning.

Re: Petty annoyances

Jeff went to the management office as soon as he woke up; there was a marshal there. Come to find out some woman did receive a package (and then the illegal-drug violation) in front of our door. The marshal said to Jeff "I don't mean to be rude, but what color is your wife?" and Jeff said "white wit...

I have no interest in defending Ben Shapiro. He can go fuck himself. I will voice a certain amount of agreement.with points made by reasonable people in this thread. Certain patterns of commentary are out there, I will roll my eyes at them, and I hope Ben Shapiro stays the fuck away. Shapiro wasn't...

For instance, I will go to the mat arguing that Wonder Woman had a ton of problems with the plot. I mean, come on, it's a DC movie! But I will also say without hesitation that it's the best DC movie thus far in this continuity. OTOH, I have friends who insist that it was great but can't really expl...

He was clearly mocking people who were acting like going to this movie was like attending the Million Man March (wanting everyone to know it as they did). Had Shapiro chosen to similarly mock people who were carrying on about Wonder Woman ("What, getting the vote and the right to no-fault divorce w...

Re: To Infinity War and Beyond: the MCU Thread with Spoilers

Shapiro wasn't talking about them. Yes he was. It was a direct call out to that mentality. I haven't seen fans of the movie making those claims. I've seen it all over my Facebook feed as well as numerous articles saying as much during the run up. Some examples: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/12/ma...

I would actually agree with gist of what the Shapiro guy said (although I have no idea who the guy is). The gushing some proggies are doing over this movie is the worst kind of slacktivism. The idea that by going to this movie (and making sure everyone knows they are going to it) they are making so...

It's a movie where a warlord-king refuses to take in refugees and works with a CIA agent to stop an usurpation by a Black Power liberation guy. This is the sort of movie that conservatives would have orgasmed to in an earlier generation. Yeah, but it also makes black people happy and proud, which m...

Ok, I saw it. I really, really liked it. Yeah, there were a few things I could nitpick, but it was a great super hero movie. But I don't get why liberals are spooging over it. The real mystery is why so many conservatives are so butthurt over it. This Ben Shapiro clip almost physically hurt to watc...

How does Congress not impeach? A man that compromised can't run the government, unless he essentially agrees to be ceremonial head of state while Mike Pence is effectively PM.

Huh, so with the "archetypes" bit added to my search terms, I was able to find a transcript of Peterson's SB fondness, via "The Art of Manliness" (which is a very good and interesting blog much of the time, BTW, not an MRA blog despite the name AND the Peterson interview.) https://www.artofmanliness...
