Hollywood is a wretched hive of scum and villainy

Hollywood is a wretched hive of scum and villainy

obiwan_scumevillainy

Well, well.  I know there’s more important things to talk about – the sketchiness of the Las Vegas shooting (so many things just don’t add up), hurricanes, fires, the NFL bullshit (I’ve already touched on that here, a few months ago).  I agree that those things are important, but we can talk about more than one thing.  Right now, I want to talk about this.

My motives are not entirely pure.  I’ve been fed up with liberal bias in Hollywood for a really long time.  I’m following this story with great interest because of the schadenfreude.

You know what I’m talking about.  Harvey Weinstein, former head of The Weinstein Company, a movie distribution outfit.  Produced lots of movies – a great deal of them critically acclaimed award-winners – and donated shitloads of cash to Democratic causes and candidates, including both Obama and the Clintons.  Turns out the guy is like Bill Clinton 2.0, and is guilty of the same things, sexual harassment and actual rape, of all things.  Oh, and paying his victims to remain silent.  That too.

This is just rich.  Absolutely rich coming from an industry that still, to this day, paints all Catholics as pedophiles or at least pedophile apologists no thanks to the church’s coverup of child abuse.  Absolutely rich coming from an industry chock-full of people losing their ever-loving minds over Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” comments.

About that for a brief moment.  If you actually listened to the tape in question, all he really did was admit to trying to kiss women, or at least wanting to kiss women all over.  So?  Lots of men do.  As for the pussy-grabbing bit, he was merely making an observation about the entertainment industry and the upper echelons of power.  Trashy, desperate social-climbing skanks generally will let you grab them by the pussy and whatever else as long as they can get ahead in life.  Trump apologized for those remarks.  A few accusations were made after the tape went public, but so far, none of them have stuck, obviously, and there’s no other evidence that Trump sexually harassed anyone.  So no, Trump is not a sexual predator and to say so at this time is libel.  Don’t fucking say that if all you have as proof is the “grab them by the pussy” comments.  That isn’t proof.

So here we are.  This scandal just keeps getting worse.  A-list actors have taken their sweet time in getting around to denouncing the man that some of them considered God.  Okay, only Meryl Streep called him God.  Judi Dench just got a (temporary) tattoo of his name on her decrepit ass.  Journalists and other actresses are coming out of the woodworks to say “I saw this” and “he did this to me” and so on.  He’s already been fired from The Weinstein Company (his younger brother Bob is still with the company; even so, they’re thinking of changing the name).

It just goes to show how utterly hypocritical these people really are.  They just love it when some Christian and/or conservative screws up.  They all had orgasms of indignation and outrage back in the ’80s when televangelists like Jim Bakker got caught with their pants down.  These…ugh, trying to keep the potty mouth at bay….but these cretins just loved that shit.  Absolutely freaking loved it.  And, of course, fast-forwarding a decade or two, the toe-tapping senator, the governor that ran off with his foreign mistress, etc.  Oh, and let’s not forget the more recent scandals involving the late Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly, who isn’t, for the trillionth time, a Conservative or Republican.  But he’s not a progressive leftist either, so the left loved going after him anyway.  The left just loved this.  Alinksy’s Rule for Radicals:  make the enemy live up to their own standards.  Paraphrased, but you get the idea.  They do this so very well.

We can do the same thing, but let’s face it.  Most of the Republicans in power are total cucks.  They don’t want to play hardball because it might make them look mean and undignified.  By all means, the Republicans should be running on the hypocrisy of the left.  This should be mentioned by every Republican next year.  The left has no right to judge us when all of these whores have known about this guy’s behavior and did NOTHING for twenty-something years.  They have no moral authority.

As I have been writing this, two more A-list actresses – Angelina Jolie (who had a bad encounter with him and not only vowed to never work with him again, but warned others about him) and Gwyneth Paltrow (who was asked for a massage, turned it down and told her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt about it, who confronted Weinstein, who then told Paltrow to keep quiet about it) – have come forward.  How many more has this guy victimized?  Probably loads more.  He’s like Bill Cosby, in my opinion.  I think the both of them are absolutely guilty, and they’ve both probably got a trail of victims that is probably miles long.

So I wonder, how many actresses and actors do sick shit to make it in the entertainment industry?  How many musicians have done this kind of shit to get a record deal?  Thank God for the Internet.  Truly, because you can make movies and music and distribute both without bothering with the studios or record labels.  People won’t have to whore themselves out for fame.  At least, in the future.  Right now, the record labels and film studios still hold a lot of power and influence.  I hope that will change.  It’s already changed publishing, which is why I’m even going to be published in the first place.  I plan on self-publishing my novel because, while it’s very timely, I am still a vicious thought criminal, and therefore no book deal for me.  Just saying.  Of course, some lefty dill weed will be all, “like, your writing sucks so you wouldn’t get a book deal anyway, lol.”

Uh, that’s bullshit.  Explain how the fuck a stupid hack like E.L. James can become a best-selling author after changing the names of her crappy Twilight fan fiction and publishing that as an actual book?  Yeah, Fifty Shades of Grey  is nothing more than Twilight fiction with the names changed.  E.L. James is living proof that you don’t need talent or skill to get a publishing deal.

Back to the topic at hand.  I wonder…all this silly anti-Trump vitriol and vicious feminist grandstanding…I wonder if it’s their way of sticking it to the men that have victimized them.  I am sure that Harvey Weinstein is far from the only Hollywood big-shot doing this kind of stuff.  He was just careless and sloppy and finally got caught when someone else in Hollywood felt he was expendable.  I mean, someone at the New York Times had this story ready to go in 2004, but Weinstein got it shelved.  So what happened since then?  Who knows.  But these women can’t just outright say, “so-and-so is a nasty pervert who forced me to do degrading things for film roles.  Fight misogynist assholes like him by voting Democrat!” or else they’d have said it ages ago.  They can’t call these people out by name or they’d be ruined.  So they project that onto Republicans.  At least, that’s my theory.

So next time you see some starlet in a magazine, you’ll probably wonder what sort of sick shit she did for fame.  And you won’t feel compelled to worship her or envy her anymore.  She’s just a bag of meat to the men that gave her that fame in the first place.  She might look good, she might have all the money in the world and a hot boyfriend, but she’ll always be subservient to some of the sickest beings on the planet.  That’s the price one has to pay for being in that industry, and that’s a price a lot of women are unwilling to pay.

So no, I’m not jealous of them.  Not anymore.  I don’t have to perform sexual favors to pay my bills, and I am very, very grateful for that.

MAGA 2020 and Beyond

MAGA 2020 and Beyond

MAGA.final_

So, in an earlier post, I mentioned something about a big announcement.  Well, this is that big announcement.

I have written a story for this anthology, called MAGA:  2020 and Beyond.  Click the title to pre-order the Kindle edition.  Right now, it is $4.99.  The anthology is obviously pro-Trump, and the stories and essays within are essentially about how things can be better now that Trump is President.  The foreword is by Milo Yiannopolous.  I am ridiculously excited about that.

So, my story is called “The Man in the Bubble” and it’s told from the perspective of a spoiled rich Hollywood actor (who, by the way, is European).  It takes place in 2020, where Hollywood has become much more tolerant of Trump supporters and Republicans in general.  The actor has a tough time dealing with it.  I really like the story and I am excited for people to read it.

This Book Banning Hogwash

This Book Banning Hogwash

In 2001, I was a big fan of The Princess Diaries, both the film and the book. The author’s website was the first author site I ever visited, and at some point, she bragged about one of the Princess Diaries installments being “banned” from a library. I just did a search on her website (megcabot.com) for the entry in question and it’s not there anymore, I don’t think, but there’s plenty of entries about book banning, including one in which she asks people to get one of her books banned. I didn’t bother reading that entry because it’ll be eyeroll worthy and I am not in the mood for that right now.

She thinks she’s being this revolutionary renegade for having a book “worthy” of being “banned” but just what does it mean for a book to be banned in the US? I asked that same question when I read that blog post way back when. I did my research and it turns out that the whole book banning thing is complete and utter bullshit.

What do you think of when you think of books being banned? You probably think of countries like China, where possession of a Bible is illegal. Or North Korea. Same thing. You might think of Nazis burning books. You might think of someone being arrested for possessing a “dangerous” and illegal book. You might think of someone being arrested and executed for writing a “dangerous” book, one deemed dangerous by the authorities.

But the reality of book banning in the US is nowhere near as dramatic. It is nowhere near as serious either.

The concept of book banning actually happens in two stages, and only happens in one kind of establishment — a library. Or more specific, a public library or a public school library.

The first stage is the challenge. A challenge amounts to nothing more than a patron – usually a parent – complaining about a book. The complaint can be about anything, and left-wing oriented books are far from the only books being challenged. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer has been challenged. The Bible has been challenged. Books by Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin have been challenged and in some cases “banned.” None of these books would ever be considered the kind of books liberals think children should read, and yet they were banned too, but you never see these books on the Banned Books Week List (except for Twilight).

If the librarian agrees with the challenging of the book, and if the library board or committee agrees, then the book is removed from the shelf and made unavailable for check out. It is then that the book is considered “banned.”

Do you see the problem here? The “banned” book in question is still available for purchase. In some cases, the “banned” book may be available on the library’s digital catalog (as an eBook, usually provided by OverDrive). Possession of the book is still legal, and so is the sale of the book. How the hell could that ever be considered banned?

I remember perusing the Banned Books Week list on Borders.com many years ago and being completely confused. If they were banned, why was Borders selling these books? I did some digging and that was when I realized that this whole book banning thing was utter hogwash, as Thomas Sowell put it twenty years ago.

This book banning thing is nothing more than a stupid leftist gimmick promoted by bookstores, publishers, the ALA and other assorted liberals. They want children to read softcore porn and other leftist propaganda, and to do that they have to make it look appealing and rebellious, so they make up this stupid scaremongering shit.

It’s a lie. It is an irresponsible lie and it actually makes me angry. I don’t like censorship, but pulling a book off of a public library’s shelf is hardly censorship.

No, Meg Cabot, you’re not a bad ass rebel for writing about teenage girls masturbating with shower heads. You’re just another propaganda pusher. Oh, and another thing. Ann Coulter’s books have also been challenged and banned, so how does it feel to be in the company of an odious right-winger? Is she a bad ass rebel for offending people too? Oh, but she didn’t offend the right people the right way, so that doesn’t count.

You know, this reminds me of the contraception argument. Feminists think that being expected to pay for their contraception is tantamount to being “denied access” to their precious birth control pills. Look, if you can’t afford basic contraception, you need to reevaluate your life, particularly your finances. You have far more important things to worry about then getting dick – like getting a bigger paycheck.

A lot of it has to do with the library being the easiest way an impressionable ten-year old can get their hands on Fifty Shades of Grey or some other book of perverted nonsense. After all, most parents trust the library. They’ll let their kids go there unsupervised. A kid does not have to pay for a book or a library card. They can check out a book, read it and then take it back without their parents ever knowing. Liberals love this, and they love getting shit for free. Take away their free option and all of a sudden you’re denying them “access” to something they “need.” Never mind the fact that they can probably borrow the book from a friend or buy a used copy online or at a second hand shop…oh noes, it HAS to be at the library! IT HAS TO BE U GUISE!!!!

I wonder…does the “freedom to read” include the freedom to read books by Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Jonah Goldberg or Vox Day? Does the “freedom to read” include reading books by conservative authors, or Christian authors, or even the Bible?

This is going to continue because it’s effective. I despair for this country, I really do. People just unflinchingly accept this silly nonsense without question. It is utterly ridiculous and I’m sick of it. I know that some people will have problems with my books. People on the right will complain about the sex and the cursing and stuff. People on the left will complain about the pro-life themes and sympathy for Christianity. If my books are ever published in hardcover or paperback, and if they ever hit a public library, they’ll probably be challenged and may even be removed. Even so, I will not consider that censorship. I will think that the “banning” will be kind of sad. But that’s the decision of the community in question and they have the right to make that decision, and all I can do is just accept it and move on. As long as you can get the book somewhere else, it’s okay.

Furthermore, I don’t think this is even real censorship. Leftists defend Twitter’s reprehensible treatment of conservatives by stating that we don’t have the right to a platform. Well, these “banned” authors don’t have the right to a platform either.

As always, the left ruins everything.

I’m Not Dead

I’m Not Dead

The past couple of weeks have been busy and stressful.  I wrote about this on Gab, I think, but a couple of weeks ago I went to California to visit family, and recruited some family members as beta readers for Nemesis.  So far they like it.  I am going to have to call them this week to see how far they are (it’s still nearly 900 pages…sigh) and if there’s anything they don’t like.

I started to write a post about militant atheism, but I just don’t feel like finishing it right now.  Maybe later.  Then there was a post I wanted to write about regarding Gab’s recent troubles, and it’s just way too depressing to address right now.  I will say this, though — this bullshit infighting has to stop.  People need to deflate their egos and focus on the real issue.  I will probably start writing something about that situation soon.

I also finished binge-watching Jessica Jones, which I liked very much, despite the fact that they just had to shoe-horn in a bit about abortion and how only “selfish assholes” are against it.  Don’t let that little bit dissuade you from watching it, though.  It’s still pretty good for a superhero show.  That’s the other reason why I’ve been so silent lately.

Oh, and I have a very exciting announcement to make.  I will make it soon.

Just Took an Important Step

Just Took an Important Step

I live on the East Coast, but was born and raised on the West Coast.  I just came back from a week-long vacation, where I visited my relatives.  While there I recruited my family members – three to be exact- as beta readers for the fifth draft of the tentatively titled Nemesis.

I am nervous and excited.  They like it so far.  I’m worried that there’s too much rape and violence in it, although they haven’t shied away from that sort of stuff before.  Then again, that was the work of other people – not me, the person they watched grow up into a thirty-something woman.  What would they think of me?

Anyway, despite the fact that I still want to make more tweaks to the story, I’m proud of it.  I’ve been working on it for three years now.  It’s already super long, even though I cut out a huge section of it.  It’s time for a new pair of eyes to examine it.  I am going to try to just stay away from Nemesis and work on Wormwood and Seven Stars.

Once my family members are finished with it, I will probably recruit beta readers elsewhere.  In other words, strangers or near-strangers, which is even scarier.  It’s also a little exciting at the moment because it’s like, whoa, this is real.  I just might actually publish a novel!

There’s also a lot of politics I could be talking about right now, but I just don’t want to.  Not at the moment anyway.

Maybe this is a good thing

Maybe this is a good thing

Superversive SF linked to a Vulture article about the Twitter furore over The Black Witch by Laurie Forest.  It’s called “The Toxic Drama on YA Twitter.”  I still have yet to finish the book, by the way.  I have to admit, it’s way too preachy for my taste.  Just way too much, and it’s not fun to read, despite her incredible talent at writing.  She’s a good writer, so I still recommend the book.

It seems that the person who started this whole thing has deleted her Twitter account.  The author of the Vulture article linked to one of her tweets and the tweet is not there.  Perhaps she had the wrong account?  I don’t know, but the linked tweet is gone.

Now, I actually had a Twitter account, but it was suspended because of some fights I got into.  I stupidly signed up for another one with the same browser and computer, and that one got suspended too.  I signed up for yet another account using my iPad – this time, a different email address.  I went back to the original computer to customize my profile and it was suspended too.

Given the nastiness on Twitter and the company’s bias against conservatives, alt-righters and moderate liberals, perhaps it’s for the better that I don’t have an account there.  Reading about the shitfest on Twitter regarding The Black Witch and other “problematic” books has made me realize that it just might not be worth it.  My Gab timeline is a mess, and I don’t go there that often, and nobody wants to engage with me anyway.

So back to the Twitter slugfest.  Looks like Shauna, the bitch that wrote a 9,000 treatise on how utterly RACIST and PROBLEMATIC The Black Witch is has scrubbed her Twitter feed.  Interesting.  Her Google+ profile is also pretty bare (there’s only a post featuring some witchy artwork…not worth linking).

You can read Shauna’s ridiculous review here.  It’s hosted at Blogger, and is the only post on the blog.  She still has a Tumblr, of which is active, and a YouTube channel that hasn’t seen much activity in a year.  Everything else has been scrubbed.

Why do I bother with this, you might ask?  I just found it interesting, that’s all.  It’s usually a conservative that gets hounded off of social media.  I guess she couldn’t take the heat, but was too proud of her ridiculous screed to scrub it from the Internet entirely.

It’s obvious that the whole point of The Black Witch sailed clear over her head, and she nearly destroyed someone’s literary career over it.  It pisses me off even after all this time.

The Vulture piece is pretty good – it’s obviously leftist, but pretty fair and objective.  Oh, and by the way, this part made me incredibly sad:

“She also scrapped a work in progress that featured a POC character, citing a sense shared by many publishing insiders that to write outside one’s own identity as a white author simply isn’t worth the inevitable backlash.”

This is why there’s no “diversity” in literature.  It flat out shouldn’t be this way.  At all.

Okay, so I’m half black, half Hispanic with a dash of Cherokee and a couple of other Native American tribes.  I am also a woman.  So am I to only write about part black, part Hispanic, part Native American women?  Or does this idiotic standard apply to only white people?  And how is this not blatantly racist?

The left, by the way, has redefined racist.  It originally meant this:

“racism

noun

1.

a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the varioushuman racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement,usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has theright to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior tothe others.
2.

a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such adoctrine; discrimination.
3.
hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.”
Source:  Dictionary.com
Now, according to leftists, racism can only be practiced by people “in power.”  Whatever the fuck that means.  The whole purpose of this new definition is to allow leftists to indulge in their own racism while being able to deny their hypocrisy.
This is scary.  Racism against white people is indeed real, and it’s wrong.  “Institutional power” or whatever they’re bleating about has absolutely nothing to do with it, as you can see in the dictionary definition above.
One last thing.  This quote pretty much sums it all up:
“I have never seen social interaction this fucked up,” she wrote in an email. “And I’ve been in prison.”
Damn.
I will fight these assholes with everything I have

I will fight these assholes with everything I have

This.  Some worthless piece of shit billionaire named Tim Gill is actively persecuting Christians.  We wanted to be left alone after the Supreme Court “made” gay marriage “legal” but nooooo…they can’t just have their fucking “marriage” – they have to make our lives a living hell because we wanted to opt-out.

From this moment on, everything I do with my life will be in service to destroying this sub-human’s demented, evil plan.

I already wrote about this.  I have already said that these activists hate us and want to “punish” us for not worshiping them.  This is not surprising in the least.  It just makes me angry that I have next to no power with regards to fighting back.

I am, however, going to use what little I have to fight back.  I refuse to participate in their delusions.  I refuse to cater to them, and I refuse to bow to them.  They are not my gods, and I do not answer to them.

So, Tim Gill – FUCK YOU.  WAR.

American Liberals Sure Love Them Some Europeans

American Liberals Sure Love Them Some Europeans

Whenever a European celebrity does an interview in print or on TV, the American “journalist” or host conducting the interview goes out of their way to trash the US and its culture. It’s sort of like, “aren’t these people pathetic? They’re just so gross and fat and ignorant. They can’t even find Austria on a map, el oh el!!!!”

Almost as if they’re saying, “please like me. I’m not like those other Americans, those fat rednecks living in flyover country. I drink Dom Perignon — not Bud Lite. I eat Kobe beef steaks at the finest restaurants – I’d never be caught dead in an IHOP. I’m a registered Democrat! I loved both Hillary and Bernie! I’m not like them, I promise! I even throw up everything I eat so I can be thin like you! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE LIKE MEEEEEEEEE!”

In other words, it’s just more tedious virtue signaling. It’s utterly pathetic and revolting.

A certain actor might be on a late night TV show this week. If I am right, I will post a link to the video or something. But yeah, this happens all the time.

Fuck you, Terry Tate

Fuck you, Terry Tate

And anyone else whining and crying about the CNN meme that the media’s been whining about all week.

So you think that meme will incite violence against all the poor widdle reporters that keep lying to us? So, do you dipshits mind explaining this?

How the hell is this any different? Way back in 2008, when McCain and Palin were running for President and Vice President, respectively, on the Republican ticket, some random asshole football player filmed the above in reaction to Palin’s disastrous interview with that lipless bitch Katie Couric. As I said, she was the Vice-Presidential candidate at the time, and therefore under the protection of the Secret Service. Using the media’s logic and standards, this video is absolutely an incitement to commit violence against Palin and possibly anyone that supported her.

Go ahead and watch the controversioal CNN meme for comparison. This isn’t the exact one, but it’s close.

The left is utterly full of shit. Truly. I know I’m late to the game, but I just had to write this.

I’m glad the President tweeted that meme. GOOD. If only Palin or McCain had done something similar in response to that disgusting tackling video. You gotta fight fire with fire.

The tide is changing – slowly (and far too slow for my taste) but it’s changing, thank God.

Happy Independence Day

A post shared by Elaine Arias (@ema1982) on

I am so tired today. I had to work, and wasn’t too enthusiastic about it. Then I spent the rest of the day at a friend’s house, watching movies and eating hot dogs and turkey burgers (still trying to avoid beef).

I don’t really have much to say right now, because I am so tired, but I did want to mark the occasion. I am, and will probably always be so, so grateful to be an American. To be here, being able to work, to drive (well, in theory; I have no license), to dress however I want, to associate with whomever I want (up to and including having sex with someone without worrying about having my clitoris hacked off or being honor killed), etc.

A couple of days ago I watched a movie called Bitter Harvest, which is about the Holodomor. Josef Stalin, leader of the Soviet Union, couldn’t get Ukraine under control, so what he did was completely cut off their food supply. Many people died of starvation. This wasn’t confirmed until after the fall of the Soviet Union. No matter how ridiculous the left gets, we haven’t gotten to that point yet, thank God.

So yes, I am immensely grateful to be an American, no matter what any snobby European has to say about it. God Bless the USA.
