Losing Their Touch?


Recently Emma Sulkowicz graduated, and that chapter of the drama closed.  But a very interesting part of that drama was the reaction of her allies.  Quick to jump on her bandwagon was Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.  She invited Ms. Sulkowicz to attend the President’s State of the Union Speech.  Naturally enough, this was intended to put Ms. Sulkowicz and her cause front and center.

This all was very odd.  Normally when the “progressive” types want to push an issue, they are clever enough to find the absolute best “poster child” they can for the cause.  The idea is that sympathy for the victim will clear the way for new legislation.  They are trying to take advantage of the maxim of hard cases make bad law.  In effect, by using this approach, they are acknowledging that they want to pass bad laws.  Here in the U.S., pretty much any law named after some type of victim is suspect.

The very odd part is that Ms. Sulkowicz is not a particularly sympathetic victim.  First of all, there are very serious doubts about her story.  Second, her mattress carrying stunt is more laughable than sympathetic.  The question that is begging to be asked is, “Are the ‘progressives’ losing their touch”?  Here are some possible explanations,

1.  They think that they are winning and basically all they have to do from now on is just show up.

2. They are not a clever as they used to be.

3. They believe that the people are less intelligent than before.

So what gives?  Please chime in.

    The last chapter in the Mattress Girl saga has yet to be written. The man she accussed has to prosecute his suit against Columbia University. I am hopeing that he is awarded enough for projected lifetime earnings plus enough to take care of his attorneits.

    As for New York’s Senator, perhaps she does not realize the significance of only twenty percent of the population identifying as feminist. This will come as a surprise to her.

    I think that society lost its way when it ceased to be shameworthy to say stoopid shit in public. The idea that everyone’s opinion is as valid as anyone else’s…or worse…the progressive stack, where being mad means you get to talk earlier(!) Those ideas are dumb.

    Mark my words, next they’ll have useless politicians that can’t be criticised because they’re in the 51% female minority, or exotically originated.

    You say it can’t happen, but Spawny’s Spidey Sense is tingling. In fact it might have already happened in some accursed land.

Though an out of control ego and willingness to do whatever it takes…they might be handy. Look at Jade Goody, or The Bonobos of Jersey Shore. Devoid of talent, but famous among the hard of thinking.

I am hoping this will blow up in everyone’s face — a girl whose rape claim was investigated and determined to be unfounded was then not only given college “performance art” credit for carrying her mattress, but bc of it lots of attention to fuel her on, while at the same time her accused was subjected to some sort of public trial minus any judge, jury, or due process while mattress gal gets invited to national level political events (how brave, go girl!!) is a perfect example of how bad all this is going.

    I agree Fuzzie, I hope he gets lifetime plus earnings, and that the whole thing becomes a MRA rallying cry, leading to change for the better.

    I though feminism was going to lead to women NOT being victims, not turning every woman into a victim! If anything >>>trigger warning>>> women cry “victim” more now than ever, it seems.

    And let me guess…the women’s prof would say, “That’s right, she is a victim, all women are. Except those who are too brainwashed by patriarchy to see… Why? Ebul men. Some hashtag blah blah.”

    Beyond rediculous! And now it just encourage other women wanting attention to do similar.

    Well done Columbia, quite the education you offer! But not the “good” kind. You can’t say you were not told. You knew.

Guess the “womenz does it too” theme is necessary to pass the PC filters these days. Especially since the woman is, what would qualify in modern day law as, “domestically abused”.

    Yeah, she should definitely get sued. But I think she should get the performance art credit. It is performance art. So is pissing and shitting on the lawn, cutting off one’s own nipple, running around wearing blood, holding a spray can full of body fluids and spraying people with it, and so forth. It’s all performance art. Stuff that should get a person sent to prison is ‘performance art’ too.

    Whether we should fund it, or whether there should be any degree program in performance art is another question altogether.

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/05/25/children-take-to-amsterdam-streets-to-demand-white-classmates/

    It seems white flight has hit Holland, or Dutch schools anyway.

    Around 100 youngsters from Arab, Turkish and African backgrounds were accompanied by their parents and teachers demanding they have native Dutch children in their classes, saying it is important to allow them to integrate, AFP reports.

    The protestors were wearing bright white t-shirts emblazoned with “Is this white enough for you?” as they tried to sign up new students for De Avonturijn and Catharinaschool in southern Amsterdam.

    The group handed out leaflets and rang on doorbells saying: “we’re looking for white pupils.”

    More than 90 per cent of the schools’ pupils are from immigrant backgrounds with the number of new pupils signing up on a downward trend.

    As usual the press fails to find any explanation except white people be raciss

    “When, for different reasons, a school ‘becomes blacker’, it’s very difficult to reverse the trend,” said Diane Middelkoop.

    “White children’s parents no longer want to be part of the school. I can understand that: we all want to feel at home and that means that we want to see people who share our origins and culture,” she said.

    How can you even pretend to sort a problem out when no-one will talk about any fact?

    But as the number of immigrants has increased so has the popularity of more right wing parties. These include anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders who says immigrants do not do enough to integrate.

    There you go. White people just spontaneously become racist for no reason whatsoever. The only genuine mystery here is why these people want the whites around? What are we not being told? Do they want whites there to protect them from extremists from their own minorities that they refuse to stand up to or disown? Who knows?

    The mainstream press is dead. It’s not fit for any purpose. Note that’s a Breitbart story too.

    Scottish households are set to feel a chill set in as the government prepares to end unfair and costly wind farm subsidies which have been propping up the renewables industry.

    The new Conservative energy secretary Amber Rudd has signalled she wants to pull the plug on the huge transfers of cash, paid for by all energy users in the form of an 8-10 per cent ‘green levy’ on bills, the Scotsman reports. She has the support of UKIP deputy leader Paul Nuttall MEP who called wind farms “virtually useless”.

    Scottish households (the ones without wind turbines – the plebs) should be better off. It’s the rich lairds with big farms that will feel the chill.
