Here we go again

Here we go again

american heart

Another day, another “problematic” book.  I hate that word, by the way.  “Problematic.”  SJWs love using it.

First, it was Keira Drake.  Then it was Laurie Forest.  Along the way they tried to torpedo recent releases by Veronica Roth and Maggie Stiefvater, both of whom are more established YA authors.  And now it’s Laura Moriarty’s turn.

To be honest, her upcoming YA novel American Heart sounds like pro-Muslim, anti-American propaganda.  Poor widdle Muslims are put into internment camps cuz whitey is eeeeeevil and the main character, who is white, meets some innocent Muslim girl and realizes just how wonderful and peaceful they all are, and how purely evil everyone else is.


So, what’s the problem?  Leftists eat this shit up with a spoon.  They love this crap.  Well, not in 2017.  Maybe this would have been all the rage in, say, 2005, when eeeeeevil Bush was in office, but not now, because now the rules are even more strict than they were…well, ever.

The problem with this book, according to the fat, blue-haired hambeast SJWs is that this book employs the so-called “white savior” trope.  An example of the reviews:


This…thing is completely unaware that her very “review” (I highly doubt she even read the book) is just another example of the “white savior” trope.  After all, do her poor widdle Muslims really need her to come to their defense?  Are they not capable of defending themselves?

But this isn’t all.  Oh no.  Kirkus originally gave this book a starred review, but changed it after the backlash.  This book, which will be published by Harper Collins, went through the SJW Sensitivity Reading Gauntlet, and Kirkus even subjected it to their Muslim reviewers.  None of this was good enough for the spoiled rotten SJWs, though.  Kirkus caved like the cowards they are.  Oddly enough, they stood by their starred review of Laurie Forest’s The Black Witch.  Looks like this time they couldn’t take the heat.

Vulture has the explanation behind the altered review.  This one paragraph stood out to me:

“And while the Muslim woman who wrote the original review was involved in the editing process — “the decision to retract the star was made in full collaboration with the reviewer,” he says — altering the review does not appear to have been her idea in the first place. According to Smith, Kirkus concluded internally that edits would be made before reaching out to the reviewer.”

Really?  The original review was written by a Muslim woman.  According to Vulture, it seems that it was not the original reviewer’s decision to remove the star and alter the review.  Interesting.  Sounds like more “white savior” bullshit to me.  I mean that only to hold these people to their own standards.  I wonder if the woman was pressured or even bullied into agreeing with the removal of the star and the edit of the review.  How could she not have seen the so-called “white savior” trope in the story?  Can you imagine these white Kirkus editors sitting this Muslim woman down and condescendingly explaining to her that her original review was wrong because she wasn’t outraged by the fact that the protagonist of the story was a white girl?  These people are hypocrites by their own standards.

Oh, and this is just hilarious:

Kirkus’s critics are skeptical of that claim; among the more cynical takes on the controversy is that Kirkus used the reviewer’s identity as a shield, only to then suppress her voice when it didn’t toe the line. Smith bristles at that: “It’s like no one believes that this reviewer has a mind and can change her opinion. Is that so difficult to believe?””

Is it so difficult to believe that perhaps a member of the Victim Class might not have given much of a shit about “white savior” tropes in the first place?  Yeah, she can change her mind.  But in this case, I highly doubt it.  Given how the left acts on a regular basis, I believe that it is entirely plausible that this woman was shamed and bullied into “changing” her mind.  It’s so blatantly obvious that the woman’s “voice” was suppressed, and, in all likelihood, by a bunch of white infidels.

It is also crystal clear that the star was removed because of the “white savior” thing, and the douchebag editor even admits to it:

“When I ask if the book’s star was revoked explicitly and exclusively because it features a Muslim character seen from the perspective of a white teenager, Smith pauses for only a second: “Yes.””

This is just wrong.  It is so wrong it’s not even funny.  The skin color or ethnicity of the characters shouldn’t be more important than the overall message.  As far as leftist propaganda goes, this book is pretty solid.  It shows a white girl realizing that non-whites are people too, and that they don’t deserve to be shoved into internment camps simply because of who they are.  Just a few years ago this premise would have been solid, and everyone would have loved it.  The original reviewer had no problems with it.  Initially, anyway.  But now, you can’t tell a story from a white person’s perspective anymore if it involves members of the Victim Class.  Never mind the fact that it might be persuasive and get people to take up your cause.  It’s not perfect.  Not to mention that if Laura Moriarty had written it from the Muslim girl’s point of view, it’d still be problematic because Laura Moriarty is white.  You can’t fucking win with these people.  There’s no point in playing their bullshit game anymore.  I cannot emphasize this enough:  fuck these assholes.  Write what you want.

I am so glad I’m not one of them.  Truly.  Being a liberal, or SJW or progressive or whatever they’re called this week must be exhausting at best.  It’s like living in the Soviet Union or some other totalitarian regime where people are constantly spying and snitching on each other.  It’s crazy, and look at how quickly these people fold.  The only time they ever stand their ground is when they’re opposing us.

Whether or not this will have a serious effect on the Democratic party and their ability to win elections, time will tell.  I truly hope that this is the end of Democratic dominance.  It should be, if these people can’t even get along with one another.  Their party unity used to be one of their very few good traits.  No matter what happened, they generally circled the wagons and closed ranks.  Now, I have yet to hear about some DemonRat getting primaried because they weren’t sufficiently liberal (I refuse to use that popular “w” word.  I refuse).  But who knows…perhaps 2018 will be the year the SJWs finally turn on their politicians.

Back to the topic, though.  So far, the book’s publication will go forward.  It’s due to hit bookstores in January, 2018.  I’ve been trying to find an ARC on eBay, in case the publisher changes their minds.  Haven’t been successful.  As for this book, I am not so sure I even want to read it.  One might be tempted to pre-order the book just to stick it to the left, but this time…I’m not so sure.  I actually did purchase The Black Witch and the prequel novella Wandfasted but I haven’t finished it.  Haven’t started on Wandfasted either.  If American Heart is cancelled, I might try to find an ARC, but I don’t think it will be necessary if it is.

Anyway, write what you want (do your research, obviously, but you should always do research no matter what you write).  Write books about black people if you’re white.  Write books about Japanese people if you’re Hispanic.  Write books about gay people if you’re straight.  As long as your story is respectful and realistic, nobody but SJWs are going to bitch about it.  We need to stop caving to these totalitarian monsters.  They’re all a bunch of unemployed, ornery asshole losers with no sense of humor.  Nobody should give a shit about what they say, except to laugh at them.

Hollywood is a wretched hive of scum and villainy

Hollywood is a wretched hive of scum and villainy


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.
