Met Gala

By mike flugennockWednesday - September 15th, 2021Categories: Bidenism, Economy, Party Animals, media

It’s a story as old as time — or at least as old as the Democratic Party: discover a groundswell of pro-worker, progressive sentiment; find yourselves a fresh, charismatic candidate who does a great job of pretending to be progressive; rope in Left voters to help elect her — at which point she turns around and starts engaging in empty, performative protest and fluffy media talk while she runs cover for the DNC donor class, while the working class is left with less than zero once again.

So it was at the Met Gala in New York City this week. While police brutalized protesters outside the Gala NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Liberals’ current reigning Yas Kween, was inside showing the bourgeoisie how bad-assed she was by sporting a message in support of tepid, half-assed reformist Liberal legislation that does absolutely jack to separate the 1% from even the most minute subatomic particle of the obscene wealth they’ve been hoarding at working-class expense.

Happy Trails!

Is it just me, or has The Atlantic become our one-stop shop for tone-deaf shit takes? My current favorite clunker concerns the fascist abortion law in Texas, and its potential to turn out the vote for the Democrats. Yeah, that’s right — Texas has gone full-on fascist with this shit, a fistful of other states are reportedly considering going that way, and the Democrats’ number one priority is — exploiting encroaching fascism to rustle up votes and money for the midterms, and herd the Left back into the Party. Git along, little dogies. H’yahhh.

if you are playing games with repoduction rights to stick it to the other side in the midterms then you’re not fighting for anyone’s rights, you’re fighting for your own power.
And while we see you doing nothing in power except offering empty promises for when you get more,
no

Afghan Women’s Liberation no. 2 (or, Won’t Somebody Think Of The Women?)

By mike flugennockSaturday - August 21st, 2021Categories: Afghanistan, Bidenism, Party Animals, War on Terror


When the US first set out inflicting two decades of destruction and misery on Afghanistan the Liberals, true to the old Phil Ochs song, were never more red, white and blue — and the Liberals’ most appallingly cynical appeals for support for that debacle came from the “imperial Feminists” who tried to tug our heartstrings with horror stories about burqas, illicit nail salons, and no HBO.

So, it was no surprise when America’s Imperial Feminists picked up where they left off, joining the chorus of bitching, pissing, moaning and sour-graping about their being run out of Afghanistan, reviving the tired old bromides about women’s rights and how the US “left women behind” when it dragged its bloody ass out of the place after twenty years in the Graveyard Of Empires.

The most unctous of these was an article in The Atlantic which dragged out every one of those tired old arguments, hoary old horseshit so old it’s got SCSI ports on the back. What was merely appalling twenty years ago is absolutely godawful today, considering the current abuse of working-class women in the US, and in US satellite states like Saudi Arabia:

One reason that we stayed in Afghanistan so long with nothing to show for it except the safety of women, @CaitlinPacific writes, is that for all of our sins, our default position is freedom.

Says on the author’s profile that she traffics in “thought crimes for all occasions”. I wouldn’t know about that, but that article of hers sure is a goddamn crime, I’ll tell ya that for free.
