Joy Reid has a lot of problems. Being ugly is just one of them. The gay-bashing homophobe and proven liar, is facing a dramatic rating collapse. On top of being anti-Semitic and a 9/11 conspiracy theorist, she’s almost ridiculously unappealing. Ricky Maddow might also be a liar and conspiracy theorist, but she at least has a sense of humor, charisma, and a personality that can shift into a gear other than “smug.”

Mathematician & Economist Eric Weinstein (brother of Brett, and also a professor of a heterodox bent) railed against the current system of censorship we have. Specifically, we are forbidden by the Church of Woke from departing from any of the Consecrated Lies, until a pope of the Church of Woke, like Jon Stewart, issues a papal decree giving us permission to speak the obvious truth. He also notes that singer Arianna Grande took a selfie without a mask on and suddenly the left declared it was safe to go maskless. Because she, being a celebrity, is also a pope in the Church of Woke. But Weinstein doesn't use the church/inquisitors metaphor. Rather, he likens our current censorious era as one of Free Speech Fire Marshalls. The Fire Marshalls tell you when free speech is too dangerous -- not crying fire in a crowded theater, but actually fire in a crowded theater. But then the Fire Marshalls also tell us, sometimes, that now it's safe to use some free speech again.

"We've had many recent stunning reversals that all have the same exact pattern. The mainstream says when the obvious may be acknowledged.
A) Time mag. says: There Was a conspiracy against Trump in the Election.
B) The Lab is Likely the Covid Origin.
C) You can enjoy Outdoors.
I could have been maskless outdoors long ago. I knew the Lab was never a racist wildeyed idea. And I knew tech was conspiring against even anti-Trump accounts that were off-narrative. They did the same on masks. And on flu worse than "no big deal" COVID. The exact same pattern.
Okay. Where is the story: "a lot of people we call crazy got everything right before we did... but we get to determine who is allowed to think and speak using platforms." The platforms are punishing everyone who doesn't wait for the signal.
Mostly conservative refuse to wait. It's like an intellectual fire drill where we all get marched out of the building of sane rational thought while lunatic firemen search for the fire that isn't there. Jon Stewart is a narrative fire Marshall. "You can't be sane just yet... Okay... Now it's safe to use your mind."
This is what conservatives and disaffected liberals have in common. We don't wait to use our mind because the New York Times or NPR isn't sure what will happen if we think for ourselves.
Ariana Grande is a Fire Marshall. When she dances with no mask, we all can. Thx @ArianaGrande ! I think this is the common cause I feel with Conservatives most. I hate outsourcing my brain in my one beautiful life to people appointed to control when it is safe to think. I don't want intellectual fire Marshalls unless D-day is next week and we can't afford a misstep. Ariana Grande is pretty. And she can sing. But she ain't Francis Crick or Sydney Brenner [both Nobel Prize winners for medicine], and they would *never* ask me to stop thinking until Ariana and Jon Steward give the all clear.
This is why smart people hate this fire Marshall system. It's going to happen again. End it. Moral. It's not that conservatives are smarter. It is that they aren't obedient.
The Democratic Party is becoming the party of obedient thinkers. Good puppy. Now lie down. Good boy. Now say "Flatten The Curve." "Come on. Come on boy. You can do it. Yes! You said it. I'm so proud." At some point it'll be allowable to say Anti-Racism is racism rebranded. But everyone who jumps the gun is not a good doggy. It will be acceptable to say intersectionality developed into a shakedown. But the key is did you wait for the stewardess to stand or did you jump the gun? Yes the plane is still. Yes the pilot left the aircraft after shutting the engines. But if you decide to get up before air hostess Ariana dances you are a bad bad person.
That's not for you to decide. That's for Ariana. And Fauci. And Jon."
By the way, conservatives are in fact smarter than liberals, if you take education level as a proxy for intelligence. (Which liberals, almost to a man, do.) Conservatives have higher rates of graduation from college. Liberals can point to a higher number of Ph.D.'s, but that is a very small group and doesn't outweigh the big advantage conservatives have in college-level education.

The media is busy making the Vegetable-in-Chief sound like a statesman, which is far less exciting than it sounds. The novelty of having a dementia patient in the White House has worn off and we are left with the reality. That reality is that there was never any reason for Biden to be president, other than he was the only option they had to replace Trump.
Once he scrawled what he thinks is his name on the executive orders they put in front of him, there was nothing left on the agenda. The long temper tantrum no longer has a reason, so the stasis of late empire decline is back, which means nothing happens.
The only potential for something interesting to happen is if they snuff out the vegetable and install Harris. She is revealing herself to be dumber and shallower than anyone imagined. She is fumbling the softest of questions from the most obsequious of reporters. It seems impossible, but she may have less cognitive function than her boss and he is close to brain dead. - The Z Man

In perhaps its most extreme & lawless act yet, the Biden Administration has just announced a new program to airlift the minor relatives of illegal aliens into the United States from Central America—at taxpayer expense. It’s chain migration for lawbreakers.https://t.co/ayiKEKQQ6d— Stephen Miller (@StephenM) June 16, 2021
That's cute the way The State Dept. & Homeland Security have changed the language "illegal border crossing" to "irregular migration".
After my internship ended at The Oregonian last year, I didn’t get a single interview until I stopped including my pronouns on my resume and cover letter. I think about that a lot when I see discussions about diversity in journalism and who gets a fair shake in this industry.— K. Rambo (@k_rambo_) June 15, 2021
The above tweet is from a retweet by James Woods of one of our virtue signaling gender confused
fellow citizens. A male who believes they are female and an inspiring journalist, who seems to have a lack of real world awareness as many of his her their generation do about what makes the world go around.
This tweet says a lot about it's author. So I have endeavored to provided some understanding to this poor soul as to why they were ignored by the captains of capitalism and not awarded their desired timely employment. Because if I didn't I would feel I failed humanity. I'm like they you know.
* You lament about diversity and fair shakes in the media. Pay attention. They don't apply you. You're White sweetie.
* Your Virtue signaling isn’t valued in the real world. It's a toy of the left, advertisers and social media. It severs no real world usefulness other to make you look stupid to reasonable people
* Here on planet earth announcing one’s pronouns is more of a warning than a piece of information.
* Adding pronouns to Resumes and Cover Letters may be construed as a structural bias in your reporting, and represent a questionable mental state. (see Jim Acosta)
* Pronouns are not objective information. It's an attempt to control how people are allowed to speak to you. A sign of High-drama people with all the trappings of an overindulged, “woke” generation.
* And of course there is always a chance it has nothing to do with your pronouns at all. You could just sucked at your job of journalism.
* Personally I think it was her moustache.
Using pronouns is bad enough on social media. It's freaking obnoxious. If you don't know better than to do something so unprofessional on a resume & cover letter, then you don't need to be working in the field of journalism. There are already enough political activist journos.
You may as well self-identify as Infrared, Ultraviolet or Orange for my "race," and a idiosyncratic pedantic didactic trans Dyke with a penis because I do not like men. You will probably have just as much chance as an unknown snagging a job in media. Most organizations that readily employ people who declare their pronouns AND have no fear of going broke are state funded.
Pronouns indicate someone who is likely to spend time looking for offense, trying to change company policy or trying to get someone fired when something upsets them.
I shy away from employing anyone who I felt might be offended by the smallest error someone made in their conversation. Many employers shy away from resumes with pronouns because the people that make such an issue of being "politically correct" are usually the first ones in HR kicking up a fuss over some perceived injustice.
I have no problem with live and let live. Just don't make such a GD show of it.

This is the full context of the comments of an important writer with the NYT Editorial Board, @MaraGay, that are well worth listening to given how pervasive these views have become rather quickly in elite media circles: https://t.co/IGDq5A5fMu— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) June 8, 2021
This made me think of Katha Pollit's famous reaction to flag displays after the 9/11 attacks. Here: "Put Out No Flags" (The Nation, September 20, 2001):
"My daughter, who goes to Stuyvesant High School only blocks from the World Trade Center, thinks we should fly an American flag out our window. Definitely not, I say: The flag stands for jingoism and vengeance and war. She tells me I’m wrong–the flag means standing together and honoring the dead and saying no to terrorism......."
"It seems impossible to explain to a 13-year-old, for whom the war in Vietnam might as well be the War of Jenkins’s Ear, the connection between waving the flag and bombing ordinary people half a world away back to the proverbial stone age. I tell her she can buy a flag with her own money and fly it out her bedroom window, because that’s hers, but the living room is off-limits."

"Fauci emails are showing three key things:
* It was a conflict of interest for Fauci and the science community
* Anything Trump said, the Liberal media pushed the opposite
* CCP propaganda

"Allison McIntyre, who oversees NASA's Space Vehicle Mockup Facility in Houston, the home base for astronaut training, said it's only fair that a woman takes humanity's first steps on Mars. Twelve humans have set foot on a planetary body beyond Earth. All 12 were men, walking on the Moon during the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of the Apollo missions.
NASA's first female astronaut to fly in the space shuttle, Sally Ride, notoriously had to explain that she wouldn't need 100 tampons for a week in space, in 1983. McIntyre says, "We have female astronauts, but we haven't put a woman on the Moon yet, and I think the first person on Mars should be a woman."

"I wonder when this girl grows up, how she’ll feel about being used as a prop in selling a piece of legislation that hurt people she is likely to go to school with, work with, go to church with. Using kids to sell hate for political gain is a favorite @GovRonDeSantis move."

“What I want to fix your attention on is the vast, overall movement towards the discrediting, and finally the elimination, of every kind of human excellence – moral, cultural, social, or intellectual. And is it not pretty to notice how ‘democracy’ (in the incantatory sense) is now doing for us the work that was once done by the most ancient Dictatorships, and by the same methods?
You remember how one of the Greek Dictators (they called them “tyrants” then) sent an envoy to another Dictator to ask his advice about the principles of government. The second Dictator led the envoy into a field of grain, and there he snicked off with his cane the top of every stalk that rose an inch or so above the general level.
The moral was plain. Allow no preeminence among your subjects. Let no man live who is wiser or better or more famous or even handsomer than the mass. Cut them all down to a level: all slaves, all ciphers, all nobodies. All equals. Thus Tyrants could practice, in a sense, ‘democracy.’
But now ‘democracy’ can do the same work without any tyranny other than her own. No one need now go through the field with a cane. The little stalks will now of themselves bite the tops off the big ones. The big ones are beginning to bite off their own in their desire to Be Like Stalks.........”
