Pol Pot’s Pleasure PWNK

I can’t stand Pol Pot because he’s really nasty. I don’t think he is my leader.

OMG!!!

Yeah but isn’t his adversary Ho Chi Minh nasty too? Would you protest if Ho Chi Minh was in power instead?

#NotAllJihadis

Political Islamists are utter vermin.

OMG!!!

Political Islamism isn’t monolithic!

Neither were Nazism or Sovietism. You ever hear about Stalin’s show trials, or the Night of the Long Knives?

Classical Whataboutery: Other Guys are Nasty Too (I)

There is no such thing as a moderate political Islamist. The only moderate political Islamist is a dead political Islamist.

OMG!!!

Neocons aren’t moderate either! 

Classical Whataboutery: Other Guys are Nasty too (II)

Neocons are destroying this country with their incessant warmongering!

OMG!!!

Jihadists are also violent, you frickin’ terrorist sympathizer! 

What’s the difference?

Reflexive Whataboutery (Defensive Self-Apologetics)

OMG!!!!

How dare you smear Hillary as a warmonger! Don’t you remember what Bush did? I sure as hell do!

I remember all too well. That’s why I criticize her for doing exactly the same thing…. But I guess you already knew that anyway!

 Mascot Whataboutery (Defensive Alter-Apologetics)

OMG!

How dare you say some dyslexic people have trouble reading! Didn’t you know blind people have trouble reading too?

And your FUCKING POINT IS…?!

Ireland: Reproductive Agency is One Thing, Intrusive Meddling is Another!

Ireland: Reproductive Agency is One Thing, Intrusive Meddling is Another!

Some may feel yesterday’s piece on Amnesty International, abortion, and Ireland is flippant. I can certainly see why people might think that; but I am 100% unapologetic. However, I will now speak in a less polemical and satirical manner, and weaponize a more prosaic tone against Big Human Rights.

It might seem churlish to sneer at the ‘humanitarian interventionism’ Amnesty International is perpetrating against Irish people of all identities. ‘After all,’ some might say, ‘Isn’t your postcolonial angle a minor distraction from the most important thing, which is the rights of women, and the necessity to reform the laws in a direction that respects women’s bodily autonomy and right to reproductive agency?’

To this, I respond that while the equality of women is certainly a very important manner that deserves serious discussion  and action in any place and time, it is disingenuous to say that the postcolonial angle is a trivial sideshow. Continue Reading

Dear England: You Can Support Abortion Availability Without Being An Imperialist

Dear England: You Can Support Abortion Availability Without Being An Imperialist

Amnesty International has tried to save more people from ourselves (this time, Irish people), with its campaigning on Ireland’s abortion laws.

Of course, the situation for women in Ireland, north or south, is not perfect. But there is no excuse whatsoever for taking up the white man’s burden against Ireland; no matter how just or unjust the laws may be in Ireland, whether North or South.

No one need deny that the question of how to ensure more freedom and equality for women is an important issue in any country.

But that’s pretty much the point. ‘In any country.’ We are perfectly capable of  enacting our own reforms without over-privileged pedants from ‘across the water’ or indeed from any country, taking the trouble to ‘educate’ us.

Hands off Ireland!

But here’s a thought! Could it be that Amnesty International have actually done postcolonial critique a ‘favour,’ however backhanded such a compliment should be? The fact that these stereotypically ‘straight-middle-class-white-guys’ from Amnesty are trying to save ‘the natives’ from ourselves raises an interesting point. Continue Reading

BREAKING NEWS: USA Votes to Leave North America

BREAKING NEWS: USA Votes to Leave North America

(Washington, D.C.) In the wake of Great Britain’s recent populist-led decision to leave the European Union, momentum gathered quickly for the United States to follow suit. In a flurry of referendum-lobbying activity, spurred on primarily by Donald Trump and his vocal supporters, citizens went to the polls yesterday, and in one of the closest margins in history – 50.1% to 49.9% – voted officially to exit the continent of North America.

The “AMEXIT” decision, as it is being called, has stunned global leaders, who, while fearful of other European nations following Britain’s lead, had no idea it might incite the United States to do the same. When asked to comment on the decision, President Obama, clearly agitated and confused, held a brief press conference in which he opined, “How did this happen? This will be disastrous for our country. Are we a nation of idiots?”

Upon learning that the United States had decided to withdraw from the continent, Donald Trump tweeted, “We are making America, I mean, the United States, great again. No longer under the thumb of the oppressive North American dictatorship.”

Political experts are unclear what the impact of the United States’ withdrawal will be, starting with what to call the country moving forward, since as one political observer pointed out, “Well, it’s obviously no longer the United States OF AMERICA, is it?” So far, none of the proposed new names have garnered much support, including: “The country formerly known as the United States of America,” and “The United States of It’s None of Your Business.” Others have suggested discarding the USA brand completely and simply calling the nation “Trumpistan.”

The Dow Jones plummeted more than 9,000 points in the opening 20 minutes of trading after the news. In more bad news for the economy, the U.S. dollar lost 35% of its value by the end of trading, causing a panic among investors. Many financial experts believe a deep economic depression on par with the 1929 crash is inevitable. On the positive side, Mr. Trump argued that this was actually great news for the country, saying, “Why is everybody freaking out? This will be incredible for tourism. People from Europe and even CHINA will visit our country and buy a lot more stuff and spend tons of money at Trump hotels and resorts, now that everything is so cheap for them.”

It’s unclear exactly what drove the sudden push to exit North America. When asked why they voted to secede, pro-AMEXITers gave a variety of vague responses often supported by confusing reasoning. Ned Moronovitch of Biloxi, Mississippi explained, “I want my country back. I’m sick and tired of having to do whatever North America tells us to do. I’ve had enough!” When it was pointed out that the continent of North America doesn’t actually have any control over the decisions of the United States, Moronovitch replied, “You sound like a communist. Are you a commie?”

AMEXIT - Trump rallyAnother AMEXIT supporter, Darlene Lemming, of Murfreesboro, Arkansas, passionately defended her vote, saying, “I refuse to sit here and just let any old Mexican, Guatemalan or Canadian walk across my border to take my job – without even having to show a passport.” When it was explained to her that they can’t actually do that, and that it’s not like the open borders of the European Union, Ms. Lemming replied, “Oh yeah? Well that’s not what my cousin Buford says. He says the Mexican murderers are taking over our country so we have to stop that.”

Still another AMEXIT supporter, Jeb Haitemahl, from Spartanburg, South Carolina, argued forcefully that this move was long overdue: “It’s about time. Let’s make the USA great again.” When pressed for details as to how this would make the USA great, Haitemahl simply said, “Well, I heard that Hillary was a North American, so now she can’t run for president – which is great by me! I sure hope we build that wall on our northern and western borders too!”

An interesting perspective on a reason to back the LEAVE vote came from Bert Nottaclew, of Nome, Alaska, who said, “I’m sick of having to be stuck up here in snowy, cold North America. I can’t wait for this great country to get outta Dodge and move some place warmer. Do you think they might move the country to the Caribbean? That would be fricken’ awesome!”

The domestic and global implications of the separation are as yet unclear. For example, experts are debating whether this vote might create the long-sought opportunity to finally kick out Texas. It is anticipated that the North American withdrawal process will create scores of logistical headaches as government agencies scramble to figure out exactly what this decision means.

Senior administration officials express concern that there are no provisions in federal statutes, case law or the Constitution itself to provide guidance as to how to leave a continent. In more hopeful news, Donald Trump has indicated that he knows exactly how to do it and has an amazing plan, promising that the resulting new nation will be a YUGE improvement. But so far details of his plan have not been released.

Shortly after the decision to exit North America, Google announced that the top two internet searches in the first 24 hours after the vote were “What is North America?” and “Am I an idiot?”

4K Glossy News PODCAST 042 (5-9-16)

The 4K/UHD podcast is back again this week with with with some more serious, kind of heavy stuff.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching “Glossy Podcast” or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching “Glossy News”.

Here are the topics covered in the the May 9th, 2016 edition.

* The pill addiction epidemic is sweeping the nation. Poly-drug overdose is killing more young people like Heath Ledger, Brittney Murphy, and most recently, a close friend of mine.

* How to save money on gas using supermarket rewards cards, even if you don’t have one. It’s surprisingly easy.

* Shocking new stats about HIV prevalence among American males, specifically in California, inlcuding some of the richest neighborhoods.

* It looks like I just got an acting job in an upcoming feature-length film… not video, a movie shot on actual film. The director has an actual budget and a YouTube channel with millions of views. I’ll update more later.

* Microsoft isn’t merely offering us all Windows 10 for free, they’re badgering the hell out of us to install it. Is it better? No, they’re not exactly claiming that, but it’s prettier. So based on that we should TOTALLY risk our entire systems just so they can sell us more crap we don’t need.

* Review of the ESPN film “30 for 30: Frightful Lies”. It’s very well made, as all the 30 for 30 series are, but it’s chilling and shocking. The criminal justice system is broken beyond repair when investigators, prosecutors and judges refuse to shut down trials even in the face of clear evidence of innocence.
