Morgan Freeman Goes Full SJW

The man who once told Americans that they needed to “stop talking about” racial identity, now claims that gender identity of a statue is potentially problematic. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Morgan Freeman left the SAG Awards audience on its feet on Sunday after delivering a short speech that touched on Hollywood’s gender inequality debate while accepting the guild’s life achievement award.

“I wasn’t going to do this; I’m going to tell you what’s wrong with this statue,” he said. “It works from the back, but from the front, it’s gender specific. Maybe I started something.”
After getting a standing ovation, Freeman took the stage and said, “This is beyond honor, this is a place in history.”

He thanked SAG-AFTRA, his children, his business partner, his life partner, and Rita Moreno, who presented Freeman the honor — returning the favor after he gave her the award in 2014. She said the two have known each other for 50 years, having first worked together on the 1971 educational children’s series “The Electric Company.”

“Morgan is way more than just an actor, narrator, producer, humanitarian. This man is a national treasure,” she said.

“Morgan likes to say that if you become a star, people are going to go see you. And if you remain an actor, they’re going to go and see the story you’re in,” she added.

“I know you’re just saying this ’cause it’s true,” Morgan teased when he took the stage.
“You have no idea how long I had to put up with that,” he later joked when Moreno told him to raise his baseball cap.

“These moments in one’s life usually would call for an entire litany of thank yous. I can’t do that because I don’t know all of your names, so I won’t try,” he said.

The 80-year-old film legend, who has a Screen Actors Guild Award, two Golden Globes, and an Oscar under his belt, finally broke into the film industry at the age of 50.

He told Variety that he once thought, “your mouth has shut your career down,” after losing role after role for being outspoken about how African-Americans and other minorities were depicted in the scripts he was reading.

“I want to change people’s attitudes. About black people, about us as Americans. About America itself,” he told Variety.

Freeman is the 54th recipient of the SAG life achievement prize, awarded to an actor annually for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment.

Last year’s life achievement award honoree, Lily Tomlin, also made headlines with her speech, as well as comments she made backstage that likened the then-recently-inaugurated president’s political tactics to those of Nazis.

This well respected actor who has even played God in films joins the likes of SJWs such as Jessica Chastain and Natalie Portman, who couldn’t keep their leftie mouths shut at the recent Golden Globes when complaining about people of color being represented along with the lack of female directors being nominated, even though the pickings of female directors were slim among the previous year’s award level caliber of films. But don’t let that stop you from seeing reason and logic, ladies.

It appears as though Freeman has joined ranks in complaining about gender and the supposed dominance of men in Hollywood. The SJWs virus knows no bounds.

Google Employee Fired

The good employees at Google this morning can go to work knowing that if they ever deviate from the narrative, they will suffer the same fate.

The Google employee behind a ten-page viewpoint diversity manifesto that went viral online has been fired.

James Damore, whose manifesto criticizing the politically correct corporate culture at Google prompted outrage from left-wing employees and social justice warriors online, revealed that he had been fired in an email to Breitbart Tech on Monday evening.

In his email to Breitbart Tech, Damore claimed, “They just fired me for ‘perpetuating gender stereotypes.’”

Damore’s writing has revealed a divided Google, in which some employees agree with his outlook, but are afraid to speak out for fear of repercussions from social justice warriors in the company, such as being added to blacklists.

In a memo sent to employees, Google CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly claimed that Damore had violated their Code of Conduct.

Earlier in the day we reported on free speech social media platform Gab, which expressed interest in hiring Damore if he was fired from Google.

The one good thing about this is that it will send a clear message to SJWs that if they seek to punish wrong thinkers with firing and blackmailing them for life, people on our side will hire them and give them a place to go. We’ve figured out their tactics, and there are enough of us now to fight them.

The wrong think that Damore committed was believing (as I once did) that by pointing out the flaws within a community, or in his case the work place, he could bring attention to them and therefore cause a change. But he wasn’t aware (as I wasn’t either at the time) that SJWs would rather burn someone alive at the stake than self-reflect and think of their narrative.

So keep in mind to all those working in corporate, ladies are just like men. There are no differences. At least from 9-5. When you get home, you can laugh at these people for their insanity from a private Twitter account with a phone number that can’t be traced back to you. But at work, the narrative rules.

Hats off to Damore. He’s a brave soul.

SJWs Have a Horrible Memory

In addition to projection, lying and doubling down, add long term memory loss to the list of growing annoyances surrounding SJWs.

Yeah… gonna have to call bullshit on their whining, bitching, and moaning about no strong female leads. We need more strong male leads these days. Even Aristotle knew what made a good story. A hero. And sure ladies can be badasses. My fav was Lara Croft growing up. Sexy shorts of all. But come on… We had plenty to choose from. The idea that we desperately needed a female Doctor Who means we might need a male Sailor Moon cartoon. Or you know… not…

Notice how men never want those female roles? There’s a reason. But these women are having imagined slights about reality. Let’s cater to that. *eye roll*

Muh Equal Representation at Tor

I don’t buy Tor books unless they were published before 2005 and at a used book store, just to make sure I don’t give the raging SJWs working and writing there any money. Why you ask?

Let’s get real, people. We constantly face the need to push back against the perpetual rewriting of literary history. (And indeed of history in general.) People are forever “forgetting” the achievements and even the existence of black women and queer women, people of colour and trans people, disabled people and nonbinary people and people who are all these things at once. (The author of that ridiculous National Review article ignored the existence of Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, both written by white women who present as cis and straight.) It is really difficult to do your job while also all the time having to resist being rendered invisible, being written out.

I don’t follow best-of lists the way I used to, but Twitter user Sandstone has a thread on her worries for the future of discoverability for writers who aren’t men. Spoiler: without constant pushback, there’s probably going to continue to be a problem. It’s a self-reinforcing issue, a feedback cycle. It takes work to break.

My entire critical career, it feels, has been pushing back against the erasure of women’s voices and women’s work. And while I’m really glad to be writing Sleeps With Monsters for Tor.com, keeping on top of all the new books published by people who aren’t men—while also trying to keep the history of women in SFF in mind—is more than any single human can manage.

This erasure shit is old, guys, and I’m thirty-one years old and already tired of it.
What can we do about this? (Assuming you care, and you’ve read this far, so I hope you do.) Look, you know, I don’t actually know how to make change happen on a larger, cultural scale. All I’ve got are the things I’ve been doing all along: reading women, pushing back against erasure as much as possible, valuing women’s voices and the voices of nonbinary people too.

It’s a long slow slog, full of people who keep trying to tell you that this doesn’t matter—that women’s voices of all sorts are valued equally with men’s, that it’s about talent when they don’t make best-of lists rather than a dozen and a half social and cultural reasons to do with bias—and it hurts. It hurts to always worry that you’re not doing enough, that you can’t keep up. It hurts to know that this shit keeps happening.

The only re-writing of history or literature that I ever see is women replacing men with themselves. Then surprise, they discover a female Thor isn’t that appealing to a majority young white male comic book audience, then they claim that audience is sexist. Not a winning formula. But rather than acknowledge that the deck isn’t stacked against them, they inevitably play the victim and double down.

Pointing out achievements of PoC and non-binary gender fluid disabled whatever will always be meaningless when it comes to SJWs demanding those voices be heard. Why? Because it will always be a case of give a mouse a cookie, he’ll ask for a glass of milk. Sure, Doctor Who chose a woman to carry on the franchise, but it was a WHITE woman. It’s only a matter of time before the complaints of “why not a Latina lesbian gender fluid disabled person”? Don’t they need representation too? *gag*

Ever notice how women are dying to take over male roles in books and movies, but men never feel the need to fight over the female roles? That’s because they don’t need the validation. Women’s vanity is in constant need of validation, as proven above. And I say that as a woman. Women are vain. Women are prideful. Women need to feel as though they’re being seen and appreciated. So when they waste their best breeding years, have a bunch of meaningless hookups, then wake up at 35 to an empty bed, an empty bottle of wine and a headache, they inevitably end up blaming men and oppression for their lack of self worth. It’s simply inevitable. 

It’s not that women or PoC are being ignored or that they’re actively erased. Quite the opposite. No one gives a shit anymore. Women, (particularly PoC) have screamed so much about horrible white men who oppress them when they weren’t oppressing them, that when they raise their voices now, men (and women such as myself) take great joy in telling them to shut up. 

I stand by my words nearly 10 months ago. No one deserves representation. Nor is anyone is entitled to representation. Unless of course, the author wills it. The reason why the publishing, movie, etc industries were dominated by whites and predominantly white males was because they were a majority of the country. That is until the 1965 immigration act opened the flood gates to the most ungrateful of human beings of the third world who come to these white built countries then have the nerve to whine about “equal representation” and “oppressive white males” on their iPhone and PC that was built by the very people they’ve come to despise.

So go ahead and double down Tor. I love watching the Publishing Index on the stock market continue to plunge. 

Don’t Fly Delta

I’ve already heard horror stories from people who have dared to fly Delta, but now I officially have a reason outside of lousy service to never fly with them.

Back when nearly everyone else on the planet seemed outraged at United Airlines over the violent de-seating of a paying passenger, Ann Coulter, as she so often does, shared her own unique take.

Unique as in… she didn’t appreciate being booted off for no reason. But she’s a white conservative female. Which according to Delta and the Washington ComPost isn’t an oppressed minority group so they can get away with it.

“Sorry about the dragging,” she wrote in April. “But convicted pill-mill doctor should be deported.”

The bloodied passenger had a criminal history and immigrated from Vietnam, you see.

But so much for Coulter’s nuanced take on air travel. On Saturday, she declared “the worst airline in America” to be not United, but Delta Air Lines — which allegedly committed the offense of de-seating Ann Coulter.

For her political beliefs mind you, not because of an overbooking error.

Coulter didn’t just slam Delta for moving her from her “PRE-BOOKED seat” with extra leg room (to another seat in the same row, according to the airline). She also documented the experience in photos and tweet after tweet, which she shared with her 1.6 million followers, not to mention the wider spectrum of people fascinated by things Ann Coulter does.

They’re fascinated because she’s ballsy and tells the truth. And if Delta didn’t want the extra attention, they shouldn’t be grand standing as if they have the moral high ground over Coulter.

So here is a member of the flight crew accused of “summarily snatching my ticket from my hand & ordering me to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology:”

Coulter also shared a photo of the woman who “waltz[ed in] at the last min” and took her seat, even though she is not “elderly, child or sick,” nor “an air marshal or tall person.”

Those are generally the people who others are forced to accommodate, so yeah… the outrage was legit. Instead she was simply moved because of another woman. Not other reason was given. As if flying isn’t bad enough already.

That woman and two other passengers stare at Coulter in the photo — perhaps wondering what will happen now that they have been photographed by the same unpredictable commentator who once wished assassination upon John Edwards, declined to condemn an abortion doctor’s murder and joked about poisoning a Supreme Court justice.

Wow WaPo… you’re really not showing your bias here at all. But the public is very much aware that you’re nothing but a left wing blog of political activists. You don’t actually report on anything.

Not pictured: Delta’s fritzy WiFi, which Coulter suspected was intentionally broken “to prevent passengers from tweeting from the plane about how they’re being treated.”

Coulter didn’t immediately reply to questions, including why she decided to photograph and publicize her co-flyer’s faces.

This was so clearly a joke to be ironical about the situation. How do you not know that?

“It appears her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected,” a Delta spokesman wrote to The Washington Post.

Was that why her ticket was snatched out of her hand and another female took her place, not a child, elderly, military or disabled person? Anyone with half a brain can see the bias here.

“It was an exit row seat (has extra leg room),” he wrote. “She was moved from an aisle to a window. Same space, a few seats over.”

Regardless, the spokesman said the airline would reach out to Coulter about her concerns on the New York-to-Florida flight.

I doubt that. Unless they want to moral police some more.

Don’t fly Delta! If Ann had been any other race, ethnicity or on the left, there would have been public outrage and sympathy. 

 

Only Irish can serve potatoes!

The only way to respond to such insanity of a Portland woman having to shut down her burrito stand because “cultural appropriation” is with equal insanity. 

Re: Steve Sailer’s blog post Portland Burrito Truck Shut Down After Being Accused of Culturally Appropriating Burritos

From: A (Northern) Irish Reader

I have lived in Portland.

It is a wonderful city and the people were warm and eclectic–and so far up their own posteriors it was hard for a guy like me from Belfast to comprehend.

I came to Portland from London, where I had been studying. Every Friday I would treat myself to a feast of that traditional British staple, fish and chips.

It was only later–when I noticed that the people who owned the fish and chip shop were Kurdish–that I realized I had been an accomplice in a cultural appropriation crime.

Needless to say, when some of my Portland friends invited me for dinner and suggested making potatoes (because I came from Ireland), I reported them to the authorities and had their kitchen bulldozed.

We must remember that the traffic can only go one way.

Only Italians should serve Italian food! Only Chinese should serve Chinese food! And so on and so forth the SJW nutjobs would have us believe. It sometimes feels as though in an insane world, the only way to make sense of it is to make fun of those who perpetuate the insanity. After all, they’ve been proven to have no sense of humor.

This morning, I’m drinking coffee. Lots of it. Did I just commit a crime of consuming a bean not off this country?

Not one fuck can be given.

Beware of the eyes!

If I had known that eye contact can lead to mental health problems, I could have missed out on so many meaningless courses in school. Sick day anyone?

Students who avoid making eye contact with their peers could be guilty of racism, according to Oxford University’s latest guidance.

The university’s Equality and Diversity Unit has advised students that “not speaking directly to people” could be deemed a “racial microaggression” which can lead to “mental ill-health”.

Other examples of “everyday racism” include asking someone where they are “originally” from, students were told.

Oxford University’s Equality and Diversity Unit explains in its Trinity term newsletter that “some people who do these things may be entirely well-meaning, and would be mortified to realise that they had caused offence.

“But this is of little consequence if a possible effect of their words or actions is to suggest to people that they may fulfil a negative stereotype, or do not belong”.

Universities have been accused of pandering to the “snowflake generation” of students, who are seen as over-sensitive and quick to take offence.

Dr Joanna Williams, a lecturer in higher education the University of Kent, said the guidance was “completely ridiculous” and will make students “hyper-sensitive” about how they interact with one another.

“Essentially people are being accused of a thought crime,” Dr Williams told The Telegraph. “They are being accused of thinking incorrect thoughts based on an assumption of where they may or may not be looking.”

Dr Williams, who is author of Academic Freedom in an Age of Conformity, said that Oxford University’s guidance was “overstepping the mark” by telling students “how they should feel and think”.

 I think it’s safe to say that the university overstepped the mark when they actually thought implementing a Equality and Diversity Unit was a good idea.
So not making eye contact is racist. Soon making eye contact will be deemed racist as well. Only one way to fix this. We can’t have eyes.
#NotAllEyes
Wait, that’s not it.
#EyeControl
No. No. No.
#EyePrivilege
Yeah. That works!
