      The Borowitz Report

      October 20, 2017

      WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a stirring defense of Donald Trump’s chief of staff, General John Kelly, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said on Friday that it was “unpatriotic in the extreme” to offer irrefutable video proof that a four-star general lied.

      “It is unpatriotic enough to accuse a four-star general of lying,” Sanders told the White House press corps. “But to make available a video that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that that general lied is unpatriotic bordering on treasonous.”

      Warming to her subject, Sanders said that any American who sees undeniable video evidence that a general lied and chooses to believe the video “shows disrespect for our country and hatred for our flag.”

      “General Kelly has served our country with courage and valor,” she said. “He has earned the right to lie without fear of being contradicted by the facts.”

      Minutes after Sanders concluded her remarks, Kelly also received a vote of confidence from Trump, who called his chief of staff “a good liar, for a beginner.”

      Tic-Tac-Toe

      Donald Trump should be made to watch "War Games" (over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over over and over again) so he can learn about tic-tac-toe.

      No one wins in a nuclear exchange.

          An Unhinged Bit Of Misogyny


          I wrote this piece over a year ago. As you'll see, I was just learning about the "Alt-Right" and knew even less about an element within it, a fringe-within-fringe known as the "neo-masculinity" movement.

          The issues at the heart of this have regained currency in the discussion about Harvey Weinstein, Roger Ailes, Bill O'Reilly, Bill Cosby and our own president as sexual predators who have used their positions of power to harass, demean and assault women, children (and in some cases men).

          And while I believe that most men find repugnant this abuse of power, and it is ultimately more about power than sex, there are some men who celebrate a "rape culture" version of masculinity and condemn the "feminizing" of American society.

          A number of issues get blended together in this resurgence of "the manosphere", not the least of which is the ascendance of issues related to "white purity". It seems that racism and misogyny fit quite neatly together.

          When I wrote this over a year ago, I was reluctant to mention by name some of the websites that promote this caveman ideology, but now that we're witnessing a full frontal assault by the conservative Republican Congress and its evangelical cohorts on women's rights, social, sexual and reproductive, an effort to restore their "sacred" status by returning them to the kitchen and the bedroom, it's time to reveal it for what it is.

          One of the primary internet refuges for this pro-rape/anti-gay mindset is called ROK, the Return of Kings.

          ROK celebrates male icons, often in books or movies, who "take what they want when they want it".

          They consider the Hollywood "casting couch" as nothing more than a barter system, trading sex for fame with an assumption that someone who won't "play the game" must not want success badly enough.

          In the case of Harvey Weinstein, the ROK proponents like to refer to something called "Briffault's Law" named for English anthropologist Robert Briffault (1876-1948) which contends that “the female, not the male, determines all the conditions of the animal family. Where the female can derive no benefit from association with the male, no such association takes place.”

          In this transactional view of sex, ROK contends that the women only turned on Harvey Weinstein after thirty years of happy quid-pro-quo when Weinstein's movies started to "bomb" and he could no longer deliver the fame and fortune that was his part of the deal.

          The Alt-Right & The Threat To Masculinity

          An Unhinged Bit Of Misogyny



          By Ray Cunneff

          9-21-2016


          Okay, where to begin? Until sometime in August, I wasn't familiar with the term "Alt-Right". (see "Alt-Right: A Movement In Search Of A Message" 8-24-2016.) That's when, almost overnight, it became part of the political lexicon when Breitrart's Stephen Bannon, who Bloomberg News described as "the most dangerous political operative in America", was named CEO of the Donald Trump campaign.

          The central themes of the Alt-Right were restricting immigration, both legal and illegal, a more openly nationalistic foreign policy and opposition to neo-con interventionism. But its original intention appears to have morphed into something even more sinister. The movement has attracted elements of white nationalism, white supremacism, anti-semitism, right-wing populism, nativism, and anti-democratic, reactionary forces.

          In the minds of many, "Alt-Right" is code for fascism or Nazism. Yesterday, I got a few laughs when I posted this as a comment:

          Alt-Reich

          Then this morning, I was reading an absolutely insane article called "The Alt-Right Is Worse Than Feminism In Attempting To Control Male Sexual Behavior". (It was actually my wife who stumbled onto this.) I'm not going to provide a link to this unhinged bit of misogyny, but it did give me a new view of the Alt-Right I'd never considered.

          Here's a small excerpt:

          "The 1488 mob of the alt right, consisting of white purity enthusiasts who assemble on Twitter and 4Chan, has gone from being a fringe portion of the alt right to the dominant, most numerous, and most vocal force that examines the blood purity of alt right members and that of their girlfriends and associates (I’ve even seen members demand genetic test results to prove percentage of whiteness). Starting in December of 2015, this mob began attempting to purge moderates from the alt right who dared to follow non-white people on Twitter, or who took a vacation to an Asian country to flirt with non-white women."

          What??? The author appears, based on his name which I won't mention, to be a man of Middle-Eastern descent, who seems to believe that the greatest threat posed by the Alt-Right is that they might impede his ability to have sex with non-challenging white women. He's apparently, based on the rest of his website, one of those who believes that strong women (and nonsexist society) threaten his masculinity.


          The author talks a great deal about what he calls "the Manosphere" which he contends created the Alt-Right movement yet remains a separate entity upon which rests the survival of the western world. He writes:

          "The entire fate of the West hangs by a thread: as the liberal machine grows larger and larger, its power seems unending. But—alas, there is hope. More and more men are starting to wake up. Men in positions of power, such as judges, doctors, lawyers, and police officers, are beginning to notice the unsettling commonness of false rape accusations. Men in positions of guidance, such as teachers, mentors, and coaches, are beginning to see the value in teaching young boys how to be men."

          (I don't think he means "alas", but this is not a critique of his writing skills.)

          The author claims to speak for the alpha males who condemn a "completely castrated, beta-male-encouraging society" ruled by "feminazis". He has several articles describing how in history masculine men have been "destroyed by weakness" and references to the "Masculine Matrix" of how men are viewed by women (White Knight/Husband Material/ Player/Loser). He claims that the Alternative Media" will not only destroy all vestiges of traditional media but will herald a new era of male domination and "patriarchal justice".


          And there's always room for promotion of his new book:

          "It gives an inside look to how the globalist establishment is attempting to marginalize masculine men with an agenda that promotes censorship and sterility. It also shares key knowledge and tools that you can use to defend yourself against leftist attacks. "


          Now... I'n not prepared to say this guy must be hung like a gerbil, but he certainly seems afraid for his balls.

              Some may take umbrage at my characterizing this state legislator as a "creature", but it is quite apparent that she is an individual without a shred of humanity and human conscience which makes her totally unfit to be considered a human being, and therefore should not be considered as such.

              Instead of looking at those suffering with AIDS as human beings in need of assistance, she wants those individuals eliminated, and looks upon their deaths as being of benefit to humanity.

              Can "hunting them down" and "terminating them" be far behind"? Who else are we to "hunt down" and terminate, in order that this country and society be "purified" of all undesirables?

              Are we to hunt down the "poor" and "homeless" and do the same thing to them? Are we to hunt down and eliminate those of other races and do the same thing to them? Are we to hunt down those of other religions and do that as well? Are we to "hunt down" and "terminate" those of other sexual orientation as well?

              And, who else are we to do that to, and because we "love" them?

              She undoubtedly believes herself a "good Christian" but, if she does, it is a version of Christianity devoid of any shred of humanism, and totally devoid of any humanitarian concerns whatsoever.

              Genocide In Venezuela And Jane Fonda And Feminism

              I start with JF and go on to the other much bigger subject

              Say what you want about JF, but she's been around for a while and ain't stupid. For a long time she didn't call herself a feminist because she wasn't a man hater. Now of course JF has spoken about the latest twist in that very sad saga of sexual harassment, something that's veeery hard to fight. Se made a very important point, that it's not only about Hollywood, but it's happening everywhwere, in the whole world!

              Jane Fonda has also talked about how the Dems, the Clintstonenes and BOOHOOHOO- my emphasis - let the people down and paved the way for Orange 45.

              There's a connection to the next subject, because both are about basic human rights and needs: In oil rich Venezuela, people are dying of hunger and lack of health care. There's cannibalism, and many thousands of newborn babies die for lack of postnatal care!

              The stupid opposition can't unite about what's most important, toppling the inMaduro narcocracy. Therefore the work of the Vzla diaspora is very important, creating financial and political pressure.

              Cub Scout Expelled Over Gun Control Questions

                  I am not a supporter of the Boy Scouts of America because they discriminate against atheists and had to be dragged kicking and screaming to allow gays. I would never deny any kid the opportunity to participate in scouting though, because aside from the religious BS scouting is fun and teaches positive values.

                  What kind of lesson is being learned by Ames and every other kid in scouting when they are censored for asking the tough questions that our representatives are obligated to answer. Who has the most at stake than children about the increasing dangers and mass shootings? We all have the right to ask those questions and demand action from these NRA supporters who are usually passionate pro-lifers while blocking reasonable attempts to bring just a little bit of sanity to this culture of violence tearing us all apart.

                  Obviously the pious defense of the NRA version of the 2nd Amendment is more important that it's victims.


                  A Cub Scout pressed a lawmaker about gun control. Then his den kicked him out, his mother said.

                  When Ames Mayfield’s Cub Scout den met with a Colorado state senator last week, the 11-year-old came prepared with a long list of typed-up questions. He excitedly raised his hand to ask his first one.

                  Ames pressed the Republican state senator, Vicki Marble, on an issue he knew was important to her: gun legislation. The Cub Scout in Broomfield, about 20 miles north of Denver, asked her a slew of questions about previous bills she had sponsored in support of the right to bear arms, and he wasn’t shy about inserting his opinion.

                  “I was shocked that you co-sponsored a bill to allow domestic violence offenders to continue to own a gun,” Ames said, according to a video posted to YouTube by his mother. “Why on earth would you want someone who beats their wife to have access to a gun?”

                  After Ames’s questions went on for more than two minutes, a leader in his group cut him off to allow the state senator to answer. Both the senator and the leader commended him for his “thorough” list of questions.

                  But after the meeting, the leader of Ames’s Cub Scout pack, which oversees various dens, requested a meeting with his mother. The leader told Ames’s mother, Lori Mayfield, that her son was kicked out of his Cub Scout den, the mother said in an email to The Washington Post.
