The lust for destruction can never be fulfilled

The lust for destruction can never be fulfilled

Another day, another ZOMG SHE’S RACIST U GUISE campaign.

Yes, the vicious social justice warrior feminazi hags are on the march for yet another scalp. They nearly destroyed Keira Drake’s literary career before it began, of which resulted in the year-long delay of her debut novel’s release (presumably, as I stated earlier, to make the bad guys into straight white Christian males).

They tried to wreck Veronica Roth’s career by throwing around allegations that her latest novel, Carve the Mark was racist (I’ve read the book and I can tell you that it is definitely NOT racist). That clearly didn’t work, so now they’re going after someone else.

Laurie Forest is the target du jour for the moment. Her debut YA fantasy novel, The Black Witch, is due to be released on May 2, 2017. Her publisher is Harlequin TEEN, the same publishing house that will – eventually – release Keira Drake’s The Continent. They caved in to the demands of the feminazi SJW mob earlier this year. Will they do the same?

Laurie Forest’s novel has been getting more positive buzz. She got a favorable blurb from Tamora Pierce, a well-established fantasy author. Entertainment Weekly published an excerpt of the novel. We’ve got a month and a half to go, and the publisher hasn’t made any noise about pulling the book from release. GoodReads is even running a contest, and the prize is an ARC. It’s still up for grabs at NetGalley too. I’ve requested it at NetGalley, I’ve entered the contest and I’ve even got my eye on a copy over at eBay. This time, I’m going to get my hands on a copy, and I will read it for myself.

This is just so ridiculous.  It really is, and the longer it goes on, the angrier I get.

I’m a “person of color” and God, I fucking HATE that phrase.  How the hell is it any different than “colored people”?  You dipshits would lose your damn minds if someone called a black person “colored” but calling them a “person of color” is okay simply because “someone” chose it?  The fuck?

I didn’t choose it.  I am a person.  Not colored.  Just a person.  My point is this:  I bet a great deal of these feminazi hagbitches are white.  If I am correct, I have one very important thing to say to them:

Stop this white knight bullshit.  I don’t need you as an “ally.”  I don’t need you lily white bitches to “protect” me from racism.  I can look at an old-timey person in blackface and not be traumatized by it.  I can look at a racist caricature of a black person and not be traumatized by it.  My mother, who is totally black, collects racist caricature figurines!  I am not that bothered by those old-fashioned depiction of black people.  The depictions can be sometimes sad, and alternately amusing.  I am only 35 anyway.  It might mean something different to my grandfather, who grew up in the segregated South.  He faced real racism.  What you bitches “face” today is not the same thing.  At all.

I can read a book about racist people and not be traumatized by it.  I can read a book and not become a racist, hateful person.  I don’t need you to protect me from anything.

Oh, and note:  a great deal of black people, and other Minorities are just like me.  They don’t need to be “protected” either.

I am sick and tired of this stupid, bullshit anti-racism crusade these bitches are on.

So what if a character in a given book is racist?  That does not mean the author is racist.  The villain in my book is a rapist and a pervert who says racist things (and yet insists that he is not racist because he is sexually obsessed with a black girl).  That does not mean I’m a racist rapist and that does not mean I support or endorse racists, rapists or any combination thereof.  JESUS.

Seriously, Jesus needs to come back and get my ass.  I hate this planet and I don’t want to live on it anymore.  I know I am not always good to Him and I’m usually a wretched asshole, but honestly, I don’t know how much more of this I can take.  I hate the idea that these cunts have any influence on my life whatsoever, and yet they do, BECAUSE THEY VOTE.

That makes me pretty fucking angry.  The fact that their existence has any affect on my life, however minute and small, is a great and heinous injustice.  They vote.  Somewhere, some bureaucratic fuck hired by a wretched politician they voted for is making some kind of decision that affects my life as I type this post.

Thing is, these bitches are drunk and high on their own self-righteousness.  All of our schools – public and private; I’ve attended both – bombard us with the Civil Rights era. They all want to be part of their own Civil Rights Movement, and since the real one ended about twenty years before I was born, they gotta stretch and find more random shit to be angry about. Don’t get me wrong – our schools should teach us about the Civil Rights era, because it’s an important part of our history.  Unfortunately, when they do teach it, a lot of it is simplified and turned into some demented fairy tale, complete with LIES.  Lies, such as “Nixon and the Republicans were racist!”  No.  The Civil Rights Act of 1964 would not have passed without the unanimous support of the Republican Party.  Look it up if you don’t believe me.

The Civil Rights era is dumbed down thusly:  White people, evil; black people, perpetual victims and slaves.  The black experience was  more complex than that.  Yes, terrible things were done to black people.  I recently spent an entire evening looking up the lynching of Jesse Washington.  I didn’t learn about that in high school.  It was a horrific example of a black person being not just hung in public, but burned alive and mutilated, all for the enjoyment of the residents of Waco, Texas.  This was after he allegedly “confessed” to murdering a white woman.  Oh, but it gets worse.  A photographer was there.  He took pictures and those photos were printed on postcards and sold.

Then there’s the story of Emmett Till.  Recently, a white artist painted a portrait of Emmett’s corpse.  It was a terrible painting – technically, I mean.  The racial grievance mob insisted that the woman had no right to paint Emmett Till simply because she was white.

I know racism exists.  I know that things were really bad for black people in the past, and I know that we’re all lucky to have survived.  That teenage farmhand could very easily been one of my ancestors.  It’s harrowing and scary.

They never talk about the good things, about how not all blacks were slaves, and that some even had their own businesses!  There’s so much about the black experience that none of us ever really learn about, all so that black people are presented as these eternal victims.  This then feeds into the vengeful hatred that blacks have for cops and whitey.

One YA fantasy novel, or even a zillion fantasy novels with “questionable” passages cannot possibly compare to what black people actually went through.  It’s nowhere near the same.  We will survive a racist book.  That’s even assuming the book is racist, which, in all likelihood, is probably not.  After all, SJWs always lie, as Vox Day says.

Oh, and becuase I just gotta make this even longer, I see the three rules of SJWs Always Lie in play here.

  1.  SJWs always lie
  2. SJWs always double down
  3. SJWs always project

They lied about Veronica Roth’s book.  I cannot confirm if they lied about Keira Drake’s book.  After all, I have not read it.  I have not read Laurie Forest’s book either.  That being said, these people lie about pretty much everything else.  Or, on the other hand, they take their opinion and present it as fact, which is a form of lying.  They believe that because Laurie Forest’s characters said something that could be construed as racist, that the book is racist propaganda, that the author is racist and that the author wants everyone else to be racist too.

They doubled down once they were victorious in getting Keira Drake’s book postponed.  Same with the wreckage of Milo Yiannopolis’s book deal with Simon & Schuster.  Now they’re doing the same thing to Laurie Forest.  They tried doing this to Veronica Roth, but she’s too successful and established, and their allegations of racism were easily debunked.  These two novels, The Continent and The Black Witch have not been released yet.  It’s easier to make up a bunch of lies because only a handful of people have access to ARCs.

They are, in all likelihood, secretly racist themselves and feel guilty for reading something that might remind them of their secret racist tendencies.  Or, they’re racist against white people, which is still fucking racism.  They cannot endure anything that might trigger their latent racism because then their libtard buddies won’t want to be friends with them, so they go on these ridiculous crusades against random people.

This is long enough now.  Also, I have scored a copy of The Black Witch off of eBay.  It’s an ARC, and I paid about $23 for it.  Well worth the price because if these hags succeed, my preorder will be canceled.  I will begin reading it and will post a review once I’m done.

Gosnell, the most prolific serial killer

Gosnell, the most prolific serial killer

I just finished the Gosnell book by Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer.  I posted a brief review here.  This is especially apt, given that Tomi Lahren, so-called conservative firebrand, is getting a lot of crap for her pro-choice declaration on The View.

As I say in the review, I don’t know how anyone can be pro-abortion after reading the details of the case.  I have also read the grand jury’s report, and I’ve seen the pictures.  I even watched the documentary 3801 Lancaster, of which is currently on Amazon Prime, and can be watched for free if you’re a Prime member.

When I watched that documentary, I was a little irritated at the Planned Parenthood reps, who declared that they were still pro-choice.  Then, after a month or so, I realized that they were incredibly brave to appear in the documentary and express their horror and dismay at the conditions of Gosnell’s clinic.  So yeah, it’s possible to remain pro-choice after studying this case, but I personally cannot.  I never was pro-choice, really.  I hate using that term, to be honest.  I usually label myself anti-abortion, and pro-choicers are pro-abortion in my eyes.

I might do a post on Tomi Lahren, although after finishing the Gosnell book, I just don’t feel like it as much anymore.  It’s such a depressing subject and I’ve already had a really bad day.

Anyhow, one more thing I want to say.  Not only was Gosnell an outright murderer, he was a shockingly incompetent and greedy person.  A great deal of his abortions were totally botched, necessitating the whole neck-snipping thing.  He also clearly got a kick out of snipping the necks of those babies, and keeping their feet as trophies.

And the clinic…look, I’m a crazy cat lady, but even I wouldn’t want to be treated in a clinic overrun with cats.  Precious kitties do not belong in health clinics unless it’s a veterinarian’s office.

Oh, and the government…Gosnell wouldn’t have killed nearly as many babies, nor would his botched procedures have claimed the lives of at least two women if the government had done it’s damn job.  He had unlicensed and completely unqualified people administering medication to the patients, he had no working equipment and was resuing tools that were single-use only.  Some people got venereal diseases after being treated at his clinic.

The defense lawyer’s excuse was, “well, what did you expect?  This was a clinic for poor people!”  So poor people don’t deserve to be treated in a clean clinic with sterilized equipment?  It is possible to run a clean, standards-compliant clinic with qualified, licensed personnel, you know.  That just blew my mind.

Anyway, this post is actually longer than the book review.  Oh well.  It’s a really good book, even if you’ve already read the grand jury report.  This one also covers the trial, and the meeting the authors had with Gosnell.  Good, but harrowing.

It’s sad when your favorite artist hates you

It’s sad when your favorite artist hates you

I just read through the lyrics for the song “Samaritan” by ionnalee, and it’s anti-Christian, with a hefty bit of whining about her fans being “impatient” for new material from her. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, my post “Beyonce is not a goddess” explains it all. This line pissed me off:

“I don’t believe in a god, let’s leave religion out of all this”

Really?  Because first of all, you shamelessly used imagery from MY religion in your work.  YOU brought up religion, not us.  You don’t get to steal from my religion without me or anyone else having something to say about it.

Also…what a serious, hardcore first world problem.  So a handful of fans are impatient?  So the fuck what?  Shouldn’t you be focusing on, oh I don’t know…your music?  Your career?  Your social life?

She doesn’t mention the Christian god, but it’s obvious as to who she is talking about.  Liberals think they can simply say “god” and “religion” so as to later claim that they’re not trashing Christianity, they’re trashing all of religion.

Yet, as I said, the teaser video contains Christian imagery.  The lyrics contain Christian imagery.  Therefore, she’s talking about Christianity.

I have no problem with atheists, but I do have a problem with people who hate Christianity and try to turn it into something it’s not, which she has clearly done.

I haven’t watched the video for the song, nor have I listened to the song itself (it’s on Spotify, if you’re curious) and I have no desire to do either.  I’m done.

A peek into the sordid minds of the so-called elite

A peek into the sordid minds of the so-called elite

Ann Barnhardt is a fearless Catholic warrior.  She’s probably the most consistently devout Christian I have ever seen.  If only I had her strong faith and determination to do what’s right.

She recently went to a restaurant and overheard a conversation amongst a bunch of snooty “elite” douchebags – a German man, an American professor at Columbia University, a Swiss man, a Jewish man and a gay man.  They talked about the New World Order and what they hope to happen in the near future.  Ann managed to document the details of this conversation, although there is no actual transcript of their words.  Still, it’s enlightening:

Part One

There’s some stuff about how nationalism is so HORRIBLE, but I don’t want to bother with that right now.  The first thing that really stood out to me was how utterly hypocritical these progressives really are.  They all talk a good game about respecting women and feminism and so forth, but then have this to say about some Dutch woman speaking at a conference:

They then started talking about the speakers at the conference.  One was a Dutch female law professor.  “Is she straight?” “Yeah, she’s straight. And she expects to be submitted to because of her gender!”

Okay, so they would have “submitted” to her if she had been a lesbian, but fuck straight women.  Technically, I agree – we shouldn’t agree with or “submit to” anybody because of their gender, but progressives CLEARLY expect the rest of us to submit to the gay man because he’s a victim of those nasty Christians, the black man because he’s a victim of racism, and the woman because she’s a victim of the patriarchy.  In other words, we’re expected to submit to the gay man because he’s gay, the black man because he’s black, and the woman because she’s a woman.  If you do not meet their stringent requirements of Professional Victimhood, however, then fuck you, your opinion is wholly and utterly irrelevant.

Oh, and this next bit:

“The Swiss lawyer, it turns out, also has a private practice. When the Fag started talking about how all “private law” is really just a subset of the “imperial governmental” paradigm, and cited ICANN as his example, the Swiss came right out and said that the only possible model is total global control of all trade and businesses. Global Fascism.  He said the “biggest player” is the “OMNIPOTENT REGULATOR”, which can be the “good company”, that is a company that is fully controlled by and submissive to the state, “that is so powerful” that it becomes the de facto regulator.  His example?  You guessed it: Apple.”

Yeah, that’s fucking scary.  THAT right there is why I am not a globalist.  I’m a nationalist.  I’m not afraid to say it.  Ugh, and I’m typing this on my MacBook Pro while listening to music on my old iPhone 5c (I use an iPhone 6 Plus as my regular phone – as in, the one I take phone calls on).

Just, no.  Global control of all trade and businesses?  Yeah, say goodbye to freedom.  As surely as state rights here in the US are important and wonderful – don’t like the way California is run?  Move to North Dakota! – so is the concept of different nations.  If the world is run the way Germany or Sweden is run, we’re fucked.  There’s nowhere else to go.  If the world were run by Saudi Arabia, we’d be really fucked.  Might as well fucking kill yourself.  I mean, look at Europe – the EU is already a clusterfuck.  You really think that’s gonna work on a global scale?  Spoiler alert:  it won’t.  There are too many distinct cultures in this world and countries like China and Japan aren’t gonna give that up anytime soon.

But these brain dead degenerates will die trying to make their demented dream a reality, all at the expense of everybody else.

Also, here’s some more progressive hypocrisy:

“The Swiss then, in the context of Apple, assured the table that with regards to human rights, “they only do it for the public perception”.  The point being, since Apple is “omnipotent”, they are their own regulator, and they decide what their human rights regulations will be.  Then the grumpy Columbia professor chimed in: Apple absolutely breaks the law in Asia, but we (the former U.S.) are fine with that, because it is all “handled between friends”.  Apple is for the “greater good” – that is the globalist-fascist agenda – so “why not let them flex their power?””

They just flat out don’t fucking care.  The regulations we Americans are subject to are clearly killing the economy, and yet China can basically do whatever the hell it wants.  Apple, a company hell bent on promoting homosexuality, transgenderism and the eradication of global warming has no problem running factories in China, of which have horrific working conditions.  To be honest, Microsoft isn’t much better.  Most of the major PC manufacturers aren’t much better either.

Furthermore, this is utterly rich coming from these twats.  The left whines and cries all damn day long about how horrible powerful corporations are, and yet these douchenozzles have no problem with Apple being above the law and deciding their own human rights regulations.  Bottom line:  as Ann said, Apple is willing to promote their agenda, so the ends clearly justify the means.

I used to think the hypocrisy argument would work on these assholes.  It clearly worked on Christianity.  Now nobody wants to be a Christian because a) they’re hypocrites, and b) they supposedly hate sex, and it’s obvious that Western society is so obsessed with sex that they’re willing to slaughter innocents to keep the sexual revolution going (abortion).

That’s all I have to say about part one.  I highly recommend reading all three parts in their entirety.

Part Two

So these dillweeds clearly don’t like Trump, which is utterly unsurprising.  The first topic in this part is about the homosexual stating that they don’t need laws from the “periphery.”  So who is the periphery?

“Understand that what he means by “periphery” is anyone outside of the Boston-New-York-Washington DC metroplex, and the San Francisco-Los Angels corridor, having any say in anything.  Like, VOTING.”

Surprise, surprise.  These coastal elite assholes think we shouldn’t even EXIST.  They hate us so much. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had a plan to murder everyone in Middle America, and people like me, who live in coastal states but don’t conform to their fascist insanity.

Ann is not a Trump supporter, which is okay.  She then goes on to say,

“It is for anyone that they perceive to be “beneath them” – not of the Ivy League law school coastal  elite.  And the truth is, they’re all trash, and deep down, they know it.  Class is a bearing, a mode of conduct, not a resume, not a designer label, and certainly not a net worth.”

So true.  There’s some stuff about a shadow economy consisting of Facebook, Airbnb and other services, and that trade in goods will be fully centralized, which, as I said, is scary.  Ugh…could you imagine every aspect of your life being dictated to by some faceless bureaucrat a continent away?

The rest of it is about how much these asshats hate Trump, and how they’re gonna take him down.  So how will they take him down?

“Columbia Commie:  THE SECURITIES ESTABLISHMENT WILL TAKE TRUMP DOWN FIRST AND FOREMOST, IN COOPERATION WITH THE CIA AND FBI.”

Remember this.  We must be vigilant.  As far as I know, Trump is the only one, besides members of his cabinet, willing to fight the globalists.  He may be a puppet, he might not be. I don’t know, but for now, I choose to trust that he is who he says he is.  Plus, he drives the left crazy.

Part Three

This one is about the economic future, as well as some stuff about the Oscars.  However, there’s only one thing I want to discuss right now, and it’s this:

“Swiss:  Trump is going to war with Iran.

Table: Sunni states against Trump are sending terrorists.

Swiss: Yes, this is very reassuring. The Germans are encouraging them. Very, very good thing. It is dangerous because the situation is fragile, but overall it is very good…

Fag: Yes, because the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

(I don’t think it gets any clearer than that, folks. As I have been screeching for years, these people view the Islamic political system as its mercenary army, and are consciously using it to advance their agenda without getting their hands dirty – for now.)”

I’ve been saying this to myself for a couple of years now.  I’ve bolded the part I feel the most significant, and Ann obviously felt it was significant too.  THIS, right here, is why the gay community (and, by extension, feminists) are so heavily aligned with Islam and those who practice it.  THIS is why the left uniformly bends over backwards to defend Islam in the face of crystal clear evidence that a great deal of Muslims are bloodthirsty monsters hellbent on killing anyone that isn’t willing to submit.  I hate to state that all Muslims are bloodthirsty monsters, and I actually did not state that, but liberals will accuse me of saying it anyway.  I have no problem with peaceful Muslims willing to leave me in peace.  But if you’re the kind who thinks it’s okay to drench a girl in acid simply because she went to school or looked at a boy, then fuck you.  If you’re the kind who thinks it’s okay to throw gay people off of a rooftop, then fuck you.  If you think it’s okay to kill someone because they drew a picture of your religious figures, then fuck you.  Besides, that’s awfully close to idolatry, you know.  Who should one revere more – an earthly prophet, or Allah?  Seems contradictory to me, and that by trying to avoid idolatry, you actually commit idolatry for losing your damn mind over a drawing.

These leftists are fucking cowards – too cowardly to fucking kill us themselves.  They rely on Muslims to commit genocide wherever they go, so that us, the “undesirables” are dealt with at no financial cost to themselves.

Remember this:  leftists are completely and utterly comfortable with being hypocrites.  They don’t care.  They operate entirely on double-standards.  They’re allowed to be hypocrites, but Republicans and Christians are not.

The ONLY reason leftists support Muslims is this:  they’re counting on Muslims to kill us.  It’s that simple.

There’s a lot of scary stuff in part three too.  As I said, I recommend reading all three parts.

New theme

New theme

Ah, finally, a theme I like!  This one’s nicer and more readable, although if you view it on an iPad, the sidebar stuff appears at the bottom of the page, which is something I’m not crazy about, but oh well.  I did some minor customizations to this one, as the previous two themes were a total trainwreck.  This one looks much better.

I plan on learning to create my own WordPress themes, as I have a degree in web design.  It’s all about making myself do it.

I also have a very long essay in the works.  Started it on Friday, might finish it today.

Beyonce is not a goddess

Beyonce is not a goddess

And for that matter, neither is Jonna Lee, aka ionnalee.  I don’t really listen to mainstream music, opting for obscure musicians from around the world.  One of my favorites is a Swedish audio/visual project called iamamiwhoami, led by Jonna Lee (who had a solo career before starting iamamiwhoami).  This group made their debut in late 2009 with a series of cryptic videos posted on YouTube, and branched out into doing whole albums and accompanying films.  It’s really very interesting, if you like electronic music.  Their YouTube channel is here and you can peruse this fan-made Wikia page if you want to know more.

Jonna Lee is starting a new solo project, called ionnalee, with costumes by COMME des GARÇONS (it’s supposed to be a collaboration between the two, but whatever).  A “trailer” for this new project debuted earlier today, along with this snippet:

Buffeted by imposing, almost marching-band beats but sweetened by Lee’s upfront vocals, SAMARITAN tackles culture’s fascination with idolising and worshipping female artists.

“There’s an underlying strive for female artists to live up to a real unhealthy ideal and I think it’s my responsibility to do what I can to change that.”

Now here is the trailer:

If you don’t want to watch it, let me summarize it for you. Pretty little popstar is all dressed in white, then the pretty little popstar does something Bad (gets too sexual, or Questions Authority) and the masses betray the pretty little popstar, opting to burn her at the stake for her heresy.

But, like St. Lucy, she does not burn. Instead, she dances, or something.  So what does this mean?  Well, it looks like the usual Religion is So Bad, It’s Killing Everything Good or some such nonsense, despite what the quote above says.

I wanted to talk about the fact that a great deal of people in the West worship these popstars.  It’s not just women, by the way.  Justin Bieber fans are totally crazy.  Back in the ’00s, the Nick Carter and Justin Timberlake fangirls were just as crazy.  These days, the vast majority of popstars – and actors – are idols worshipped by the masses.  Despite the almost certain anti-Christian message, I think Jonna Lee has a point about the idolization of singers and the unrealistic expectations put on them and other public figures.

The Unhealthy Ideal

We’ve heard this before.  Actresses and female singers are too thin, Photoshopped to within an inch of their lives and are expected to look their best at all times.  When they aren’t, they’re mocked.  To be honest, the same applies to men, but not as much.  I’ve seen pictures of a portly Jack Nicholson and the late Ted “Vast Teddy” Kennedy.  I recently saw pictures of French actor Gerard Depardieu – man, he’s huge.  People mocked Val Kilmer’s weight gain too.

Women aren’t the only ones expected to look “perfect” – men get shit on too.  But feminists only ever complain about what it does to women.  It is true that society expects the absolute best of our public figures, and that it often drives these people crazy trying to live up to that ideal.

On the other hand, glorifying obesity is not the answer.  Not at all, and I’m getting sick and tired of this “body positivity” campaign because it amounts to nothing more than the glorification and acceptance of obesity, which is very unhealthy and, well, gross.

We need to find a healthy medium, and singers like Jonna Lee are rarely brave enough to say, “well, we shouldn’t kill ourselves trying to look like tall supermodels, but being healthy is the most important thing, and obesity is not healthy.”

But the ideal she is speaking of might not have to do with weight at all.  It might have to do with the singer’s image as it pertains to morality and stuff.  I am a few months younger than Britney Spears, so I kind of grew up with her.  I wasn’t a fan – instead, I was a “hater” – I couldn’t stand the girl because she had a terrible singing voice, was a skank and was absolutely everywhere.  If she hadn’t been so overexposed, I might not have felt as strongly as I did.

I bring her up because her image was very controversial, especially in 1999 and 2000, right around when her debut single “Baby One More Time” got big.  She acted like a good Southern girl in interviews, and yet did that supposedly sexy video for “Baby One More Time” (I didn’t see the sex appeal; her schoolgirl outfit looked like a reject from Clueless, complete with the dated thigh-high stockings).  Reporters actually asked her if she had lost her virginity.  They asked her if she gave it up to Justin Timberlake (who, at the time, was a member of the other big boy band of the era, ‘NSYNC).  Then there was the endless speculation as to whether or not she got breast implants.

Britney Spears slowly got more sexualized with each album release, culminating in the infamous kiss she did at the 2003 VMAs.  Her fans would whine and cry about how us “haters” were so judgmental, calling her a skank and whatnot.  By the way, she had one particularly heinous fan that I’ll get into later on.

People either saw her as the ultimate sex symbol or the nastiest skank to have ever lived.  At the time, it seemed as if there was no middle ground.  Then the meltdown happened and her career started to fade away, and now she’s lipsyncing a big Las Vegas extravaganza.  Yes, she’s not even forty years old and she’s already doing a Vegas residency, and to top it all off, she’s not actually singing at those concerts.

But she seems to be doing okay, given all that’s happened, and I feel a little bad for her, because those years she spent at the top of the music industry could not have been easy.  First, everyone’s all “omg ur so hot britney” and then, as soon as she gains a little weight, “omg britney ur so fat, lol” – it must have been  crazy, and that’s putting it mildly.

So there is that, although I do not think that these days, female singers are exorciated in the media for being too sexy.  Even back in 2000 it wasn’t like that for most singers, except for Britney.  Christina Aguilera would often try way too hard to generate the kind of controversy Britney generated, but instead came across as a demented skank, which is too bad because she’s got an amazing voice.

If you’ve read anything else I’ve written, you know that I’m personally pretty conservative.  I don’t sleep around, I don’t do one night stands, and I don’t wear skimpy clothes.  I barely talk about anything with anyone, and I certainly wouldn’t discuss anything sexual with total strangers.

Feminists are still under the impression that they’ll be persecuted for wearing a short skirt in public.  They constantly whine about how they aren’t allowed to be sexual.  I don’t know what world they’re living in, because most Christians don’t care if Katy Perry goes topless in a music video.  They don’t care if Rihanna gives virtual blow jobs at her concerts.  They don’t care if Miley Cyrus makes out with girls in her videos.  They just don’t give a damn anymore.  There’s no Moral Majority hanging around with pitchforks and torches, ready to freak out over Madonna’s (dusty and wrinkled) nipple.

But feminists are predictable, and of course, I bet that this is the message ionnalee will impart on her audience – that we prudish Christians are making life hard for female singers, expecting them to not be sluts or something.  Cue eyeroll.

These People Are Not Gods

However, she does make mention of how people worship these female singers, and if you are at all familiar with iamamiwhoami’s work, you won’t be surprised at this.  Jonna Lee has what I consider a slightly contentious relationship with her fans.  The audiovisual film KIN and BLUE were all about the expectations people have for musicians and the incredible and inspiring feedback the musician gets from their fans, respectively.  The audiovisual film BOUNTY seems to have used the mandragora myth to depict how the music industry uses female musicians, so she isn’t really saying anything new with this.

I can understand her frustration with the kind of fans that post on their YouTube channel or in the comments section for individual videos, insisting that they release more content.  I don’t think the iamamiwhoami fans are that demanding, though.  On the other hand, some of these fans are a little overzealous.  Dare to criticize any part of the project, and they freak out.  Well, in the case of iamamiwhoami, not very many people lose their shit over disagreements, but there’s other fandoms that are just one french fry short of a happy meal.  Seriously.

Back when I was a Britney Spears “hater” there was this one girl, also named Britney, that posted at a message board I also posted at.  The board was dedicated to talking shit about popstars we hated.  I can’t even remember the name of the board.  This girl made the huge mistake of posting on a Britney fan board, telling the fans that Britney can’t sing and whatnot.  They, understandably, took issue with that.  I mean, come on.  I’m not interested in reading whole threads about how much someone hates my favorite musician, but from what I remember she wasn’t even that bad about it.  I don’t know, the situation just escalated.

What happened next absolutely enraged me, and still does to this very day.  One of the Britney fanboys started stalking the girl.  Found out that she had been raped, found her pictures, discovered her real name and started making crude parodies of Britney album covers, mocking the fact that this girl had been raped.  They gave her a stage name, referring to something she wore in one of her pictures.  I won’t even bother listing the stage name.  I don’t want to subject this girl to further harassment, because it is still ongoing.

It’s been over a decade and this person is still stalking her, all because she dared to criticize Britney Spears on their turf.  Normal people would just report the so-called “hater” to the board admins and get their account banned and MOVE ON, but no, not these people.  Talk about worshipping a popsinger.  This is beyond worship, this is flat-out fanaticism.  After all, the word “fan” is short for “fanatic” and some of these fanboys and fangirls meet the definition for fanatic.

But Britney is far from the only singer to have demented, insane fans.  Lady GaGa has crazy fans too, some of which seem to worship her entirely unironically.  A few years ago, right around the release of Born This Way, she did some sort of collaboration with Office Depot in support of her charity, the Born This Way Foundation.  It was, ostensibly, to fight bullying.  That’s when the worship reached a fever pitch.  People were saying that GaGa’s music saved their lives, and that she was their savior.  They said she was just as much of a hero as a fireman or a veteran, all because she ripped off Madonna’s “Express Yourself” to make her own hackneyed gay rights anthem.

Lady GaGa fans and Madonna fans regularly fight one another over which one is better, and over which one is the biggest rip off artist.

Beyonce fans are the craziest at the moment.  They call themselves the Beyhive, and they attack anyone that dares to criticize their idol.  They attacked Kid Rock, they attacked Rachel Roy and Racheal Ray after mistaking the latter for the former, they attacked Kim Kardashian and they attacked some random reporter.   Just do a search on your favorite search engine for Beyonce fans attacking people.

Some of these fandoms have names too, like the aforementioned Beyhive for Beyonce fans, Little Monsters for Lady GaGa, Beliebers for Justin Bieber, Barbies for Nicki Minaj, etc.  I think Deadheads for the Grateful Dead were the originals, and they weren’t a pack of nutjobs ruining people’s lifes for daring to criticize their idol.

That’s the problem right there.  What do you care if someone doesn’t like your favorite musician?  So the fuck what?  If iamamiwhoami’s music isn’t to your taste, that’s fine!  It’s no skin off my back.  Maybe it’s because I’m a grown woman.  After all, when I was in junior high, I lost it whenever someone criticized Sailor Moon, my favorite anime.  Now?  I don’t really care if someone thinks Sailor Moon sucks.  My cousin laughed at Sailor Moon when he saw it for the first time, and I realized that yeah, it can be kind of goofy at times, but it doesn’t diminish my enjoyment of it.

I am not buying the notion that these are all a bunch of kids.  Some of them might very well be kids, but most of them are probably college age and older.  Either way, these people need to grow the hell up.  These singers don’t even know you’re alive.  They don’t know you, and you don’t know them.  They don’t need to you defend them.  They will survive if someone criticizes them, trust me.

Vote Hillary Because Katy Perry Says So!

Popstars getting political pisses me off so much.  I’ve already touched on this here, so I won’t say much more about this.

I think Democrats worship their politicians.  I really do.  Witness the past couple of months, or rather, the aftermath of the 2016 election.  Of course, the primary reason for the Democrat devastation is that they thought they were gonna make history again, but Destiny was thwarted.  Hillary would not be the First Female President.

Look at it this way – to liberals their Democratic candidate is God.  The Republican candidate is always Satan.  It’s as if Satan actually won, and that the Bible is a book full of lies.  Wouldn’t you be devastated?  I would be.  Of course, that does not excuse their ridiculous “protests” (more like mob violence) and the demented things they’ve said.  But their god has failed them.  Of course they’re upset, and they have only themselves to blame.

Why they even respect the Democrats is beyond me.  They’re all just as rich as the nebulous Wall Street Billionaires they’re bitching about all the time.  Their lifestyles are just as decadent, and in some cases probably more so.  Some of them, like the odious Harry Reid, are at least borderline racist, if not outright racist.  And some of them are hopelessly stupid (like that guy who thought that too many troops on Guam would make the whole island tip over).

But, as Ann Coulter says, abortion is their sacrament, and they love them some free shit, so a Democrat can be a decadent rich piece of shit and still get craploads of votes.

So what will be the message of Samaritan?

That’s the name of the first single from ionnalee, by the way.  It’ll probably be some bullshit feminist subversion of the story of St. Lucy, Christians will be demonized and I will be bitterly disappointed becuase I really liked this group, even though I know they’re extreme leftists.

This is long enough, so I will say this in closing:  I am grateful that both she and I have the right to express ourselves.  I wish she’d be more concerned about what’s happening in her own home country, with girls and women like her being terrified to leave their homes for fear of being raped by migrants.  But I am glad that no Christian will want to throw acid in her face for criticizing Christianity.  Nothing bad will happen to her, and nothing bad will happen to me (I hope) and to be honest, that’s what free speech is all about.  Give and take.  Speak and someone responds.
