Virtue Signaling


Lefty types, feminists included (perhaps more so than most, as they don’t have as much victim cred), seem to have a compulsion to virtue signal; that is, make a big show about how they have the correct values with respect to what ever topic is under consideration at the time.

Have these correct values been arrived at via careful consideration?  Probably not.  Have they considered to cost and potential future implications of these correct values?  Yes and no.  Yes, they personally gain status points with their crowd, and no they do not consider much of anything else.

One could view it all from a pride perspective.  One can feel pride when one accomplishes a task that was challenging, rare, and/or useful to yourself/others.  Does this criteria apply to virtue signaling?  No.  But still there is pride, a very empty pride.  Probably most virtue signalers know the score, which make them very sensitive to being accused of such.

Contrast this to the historical Christian perspective.  It was expected that Christians would do good deeds beneficial to people, and to be modest about it.  The idea is that the deeds are more likely to come from the heart. Furthermore, potential resentment among others is reduced.  Naturally enough, the virtue signalers are the antithesis of this, with their puffing up the deed of having the in-fashion views.  Perhaps they are oblivious to the resentment they cause.

Short answer — society would be a much improved place without virtue signaling.

    I just finished reading this link – that I stumbled upon looking for something else – and found it a good read, both the body and the comments. You might think so too if you have that time to read through it. I think my link takes you to the first comment, so scroll up to read the article. The first comment basically makes no sense unless you read the thread it is referencing. I’ll post that link in the next comment. It is a disturbing read if you have kids.

    https://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/life-among-the-wokescolds/comment-page-1/#comments

    I teach 10th – 12th graders at a prominent independent all-girls school in Texas, and I see this regularly among my mostly privileged, ivy-league enthralled students. What is more worrying to me is how many of the faculty and administration, the so-called adults in the room, celebrate the empty virtue of “wokeness” among our girls. Recently, a language teacher excitedly related a story about how during a translation exercise, not one of the students translated the names “Mary” and “Robert” to the Spanish forms “Maria” and “Roberto.” Concerned, she broached the issue with the class and asked why no one translated the names. One of the girls raised her hand and said that she started to translate “Robert” to “Roberto” in the passage, but then “felt guilty” because she did not want to “assign an identity” to Robert who might not “self-identify” as Latino. Then the rest of the girls jumped onto this three-wheeled bandwagon and applauded themselves for their “wokeness”. The teacher was actually excited by this exercise in tomfoolery and expected me to be as well – and as one of the lone-wolf religious conservatives in my profession, I did what I have learned to do over time – just nod politely and keep my critical thoughts to myself. I mean, seriously? Did the kids understand that Robert/Roberto does not exist? Since when is translating a name akin to the woke thought-crime of “assigning identity”? What of kind of bizarre logic are we perpetuating among our students? And why can’t an otherwise competent and intelligent adult bother to recognize and point out infantile <b<virtue signaling for what it is? It’s painful, but as the years go by, I find myself agreeing more and more with Daneen’s sentiments, that this kind of thoughtless thinking is not a bug, but a feature of our contemporary cultural and educational enterprise.

    Richard – extremely disturbing.

    one of the comments that made it up to the OP related to the harsh content of books being deemed acceptable at younger and younger ages. truly, a parent cannot allow the public schools to choose books in the best interest of their children.

    Aspie-Girl’s 8th grade year in public school was actually a pretty good year in that her sped teachers were good, her reg-ed teachers were good, and the principal, AP, district sped personnel, etc, were all good. the bad was her dad died in the spring. i had been pleased with the selection of books the kids were required to read that year and with the assignments my daughter had in all her classes and with how the sped teachers in her very specialized division of special ed handled her and their class. so when they came up at the end of the year, after her dad died, and said they were going to read a special book about friendship, i (very stupidly) trusted them.

    Aspie-Girl began reading the book and became extremely distraught. so i told her to stop reading till i could read it, and i was absolutely shocked. it was a book about a kid whose dad murdered his mother via strangulation and at the end tries to murder the kid … but his friend saves him (so, oh, gee! happy friendship book!). i was beyond incensed and sent a very stern email to the whole freakin staff of that school and dist sped reps telling them so.

    what insane teachers would give an 8th grade special needs girl whose known emotional level was significantly lower than her reg-ed peers and was in a higher level needs class whose father had just DIED a book about a father MURDERING his mother and call it a ‘sweet book about friendship?!!!

    – – –

    my daughters learned from birth they were not allowed to watch or read anything their dad and i did not approve of, and they knew that we were not crazy about that … so when we forbid them to watch or read something, it really was for their PROTECTION. they’ve obviously reached an age where that’s not an issue, but until they were much older teens, they defaulted to our/my authority. they knew we were protecting them.

    and over and over they still both thank me for pulling them out to homeschool in high school.

    Brexit

    This panic-mongering is ridiculous. If the UK plays its cards right, it will end up with a higher standard of living than any EU country. However it is NOT playing its cards right. Its commissioners and officials and business leaders should have been working hard in key WTO countries shoring up unprecedented trade opportunities.

    Instead, the UK has obsessed over a brexit deal with Europe. The government has placed all its eggs in that one basket. It has done sweet fuck all to prepare the UK trade-wise for a genuine brexit. They are managing to do a worse job of leaving the EU than they did of joining the Common Market in the early 1970s. Back then, their treatment of their unconditional allies, Canada, Australia, NZ, was condescending and at times deliberately insulting. The ill will was completely unwarranted.

    The “average Joe Bloggs” are not directly to blame for this, except that they along with the average Joe Bloggs of all democracies seem to have a predilection for electing incompetent government. It is no less true of Canada and Australia and NZ than it is of the UK that democracy is failing democracies right now.

    Sound sketchy? That’s because the addict has been secretly recording the argument in a bid to concoct domestic abuse. The addict has also been using “spy ware” to capture the partner saying that the addict didn’t steal the prescription pills found by police.

    Into this toxic relationship enters the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. It sees the addict’s evidence – including doctored audio files and photos of unrelated bruises – and expels the partner without giving him the evidence.

    This is the tale told in Jacob Oliver’s federal lawsuit against the school, which cleared key hurdles earlier this month.

    The U.S. District Court in Dallas rejected UTSW’s motion to dismiss his procedural due process and gender-discrimination claims, while throwing out claims including First Amendment retaliation.

    Perhaps the most astonishing thing about that incident is that it happened in Warren County, Kentucky, which President Trump carried by a 30-point margin in 2016. It’s such a Republican stronghold that the local GOP congressman, Rep. Brett Guthrie, had no Democrat challenger in 2016 and won re-election in 2018 with 67% of the vote against Democrat Hank Linderman.

    Vincent Ungro, a dad from Annadale, New York, has an 11-year-old daughter who attends I.S. (Intermediate School) 75. She asked him for help with her vocabulary homework last Friday night because she was trying to fill in the blanks from a word bank to complete her assignment — and was really puzzled.
    “President Trump speaks in a very superior and _________ manner insulting many people. He needs to be more __________ so that the American people respect and admire him,” read one homework sentence.

    The next question was: “Barack Obama set a _________ when he became the first African-American president.”

    And what were the choices for the two questions, you ask? These three words: “haughty,” “humble,” and “precedent.” You can guess which ones were meant to be the “correct” answers in this teacher’s mind.

    Ungro, 46, told his daughter not to fill in those blanks — and wrote a note to the teacher, Adria Zawatsky, on the homework sheet, as The Post noted. “Please keep your political views to yourself and do not try to influence my children on them. Thank you,” he wrote.

    The teacher docked the points — which Ungro called “vindictive.”

    However, the idea of socialism makes fulfilling this fundamental need virtually impossible.

    What are the reasons for this?

    For one, socialism, by definition, abdicates personal responsibility. It lends to the mindset of not having to care for oneself, one’s family or one’s community, because the government will instead. Thinking this way inevitably makes a person more selfish and lazy, since he or she knows that the government will always hold everyone’s hand, so the individual doesn’t have to help himself or anyone else.

    Another reason is that a mindset of a cradle to grave utopia, where everything is provided to a person, will always lead to a person becoming bored. Humans crave purpose, almost as we crave food and oxygen. As psalmist says in the book of Psalms (28:2), “For you shall eat the labor of your hands; happy shall you be, and it shall be well with you.” In other words, when someone works hard and he or she benefits from that work, that helps to create happiness and satisfaction. However, if someone is handed everything without earning it, it will most likely lead to a sense of emptiness. This phenomenon explains why most who win the lottery become miserable.

    Its funny seeing them trying to dodge the basic logic.

    “The judge went on to say that the government could no longer justify treating women and men unequally in requiring men but not women to register.

    Not surprisingly, the government argued that there is a difference between allowing women to serve and requiring them to serve. The judge found the government’s explanation inadequate and unconvincing.

    From a purely logical standpoint, it’s odd that the court didn’t accept the government’s answer.

    Imagine a draft tomorrow under current combat rules, which allow but don’t require women to fight. If only a small portion of the women drafted actually chose to serve in combat, drafting them wouldn’t serve Congress’s need for combat troops — the legal justification for the draft.”

    If you are drafted you do not chose to serve in combat or in the rear. You are told. Dumass.

    When the home of Nikki Joly burned down in 2017, killing five pets, the FBI investigated it as a hate crime.

    After all, the transgender man and gay rights activist had received threats after having a banner year in this conservative town.

    In the prior six months, he helped open the city’s first gay community center, organized the first gay festival and, after 18 years of failed attempts, helped lead a bruising battle for an ordinance that prohibits discrimination against gays.

    For his efforts, a local paper named him the Citizen of the Year.

    Authorities later determined the fire was intentionally set, but the person they arrested came as a shock to both supporters and opponents of the gay rights movement. It was the citizen of the year — Nikki Joly.

    “It’s embarrassing,” said Travis Trombley, a gay resident who fought for the ordinance. “How do you do it to the community you have put so much effort into helping?”

    Stating they realized that we really dodged a bullet this time, citizens all over the country expressed their sudden sense of comfort and serenity at the fact that Ocasio-Cortez would probably never have children. Fear and trepidation had swept the nation upon the realization that Ocasio-Cortez likely possessed the capability to reproduce actual human children, whom she would then ingrain with her values and politics for their entire childhoods before they would go on to have political careers of their own.

    “This is a huge burden off my chest,” said Lyle Billings of Lawrence, Kansas. “I suddenly realized that there could be two, three, or even four little Ocasio-Cortezes running around one day. So I totally support the congresswoman’s position against having children. It’s really what’s best for the nation as a whole.”

    While the nation is typically baffled at Ocasio-Cortez’s positions, her bold stand against having children has become her most popular policy position yet, garnering a 97% approval rating.

    @Ame – Re. Airplane Beach: except for the beach and the really big planes, that could be Burbank / Bob Hope airport. The mountains to the east of the airport in your video even look similar.

    Vineland Ave runs north and south at the west end of the runway that the planes land on. They come in from the west / left, and it seems you can almost reach up and touch the wheels as they pass over Vineland . Used to have a bunch of kids in the neighborhood when daughter was young. On Saturdays we used to pile into the car and go watch the planes land. It worked better if we went to the parking lot just to the north of the runway, off of Vineland. The kids could look through the chain link fence and watch the planes land. They are all in their early 20s now, but they still talk about those days. Big, noisy, metallic, lots of wind, scary fun as they learned they were safe where they were behind the chain-link fence, but there was the monster touching down right in front of them. It was interesting seeing that through the kids eyes.

    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn told Fox News this morning there are a number of scenarios that may lead to a third Hillary candidacy.

    After defending Clinton’s credentials as “one of the most experienced politicians around,” Penn went on to say of the reported recent confabs between Hillary and declared candidates, “Those meetings are going to be somewhat awkward because she hasn’t declared that she’s not definitely running, and she, in fact, at the same time is looking over the field and I think will make a decision later in the year whether or not to run herself.”

    Penn said the chances of Hillary running depends on how the field shapes up.

    “If the party looks too far to the left and there’s no front runner, she’ll get in,” he said.

    Again and again, she’s let it slip out that she wants to run.

    The willingness to provide economic support for those unwilling to work, or the acceptance of such ideas, is not the biggest lie surrounding the Green New Deal. A short time ago, Ocasio-Cortez insisted she didn’t want Venezuelan socialism for the United States. She was seeking the smiling, Swedish sort of socialism for this country. Never mind the fact that Sweden really isn’t socialist, either, as the government doesn’t control the means of production.

    Regardless of Ocasio-Cortez’s cavalier ignorance of facts, she stated very clearly that she didn’t want the ugly, brutish socialism we’ve seen destroy Venezuela. Yet the Green New Deal exposed her lies on that front. The underlying theme to the entire plan is coercion. It has to be. This Green New Deal cannot be achieved without embracing full-blown, coercive socialism.

    The benefits are easy to explain, said the white paper’s principal researcher, Craig D. Idso, chairman of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change and a member of the CO2 Coalition.

    He said plants thrive when there is more CO2, which is why growers pump it into greenhouses.

    “The modern rise in atmospheric CO2 is proving to be a powerful ally in staving off regional food shortages that are projected to occur just a few decades from now. The unique characteristics of this miracle molecule are helping to raise crop yields per unit of land area, per unit of nutrients applied, and per unit of water used,” said the report titled, What Rising CO2 Means for Global Food Security.

    Let’s take a trip down Bad Memory Lane. For approximately three decades, the prevailing feminist doctrine was “gender neutrality” theory; it held that the sexes are the same except for the superficial physical differences, therefore raising boys and girls the same way will result in their being identical beneath the skin. This was embraced so radically that, as iconoclastic feminist Camille Paglia once related, feminists would corner her on college campuses in the ’70s, glaring, and swear that hormones didn’t exist and that even if they did, they couldn’t possibly influence behavior.

    Though I never believed it, I was accosted with this theory as a teen and young adult, as many of you no doubt were. It was convenient for feminists. After all, convince people of the sexes’ sameness, the thinking (feeling?) goes, and there can be no justification for keeping women from traditionally male arenas.

    The social pressure brought to bear was profound, too. “Gender neutrality” theory was Science™, opposed only by knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, backward Neanderthals. Sound familiar?

    The connection to transgenderism should be obvious. The feminists spread notion A, “that the sexes are the same except for the superficial physical differences.” Then transgender activists came along and merely espoused B, a corollary: if you change the superficial physical differences, you can be the opposite sex.

    You can draw a straight line from one to the next — B absolutely, logically follows from A.

    Related to this, some feminists complain that if a man can be female just by saying so, it dilutes the idea of “woman.” But did feminism not start this dilution with sameness-beneath-the-skin doctrine?

    Larson also told Entertainment Tonight that she pushed the studio to make “Captain Marvel” a “big feminist movie.” “I had a meeting with Marvel and what we discussed is they wanted to make a big feminist movie,” she said.

    Larson’s’ comments prompted instant backlash online, particularly over at Rotten Tomatoes, where the film’s “Want To See” score began dropping precipitously — triggering critics on the left to blame the right for the bad buzz, as Twitchy noted.

    In apparent response, as pointed out by Den of Geek, Rottten Tomatoes has announced that it’s going to put an end to the “Want To See” score altogether.

When he heard that the BBC series Panorama, which is the UK’s answer to 60 Minutes, was planning a story on him with the working title “Tommy Takedown,” and that its producers were collaborating with the vile group Hope Not Hate (HNH), which is Britain’s version of the Southern Poverty Law Center — i.e., a shady far-left smear machine masquerading as a noble monitor of bigots, fascists, and hate groups — he decided to go on the offensive.

    A revealing new report on privilege in America was published by a research team at Santa Carlo University on Wednesday. Researchers conducted the study with the goal to find recurring traits in those who enjoy extreme privilege in America. The results were more or less predictable: the very people griping about privilege all day are by far the most privileged people on the planet.

    “We found that if an individual spends their time doing things like sitting around on Twitter telling white people not to eat Thai food, or men to quit trying to get jobs, or Asians to quit getting such good grades, then there is a good chance they are the beneficiaries of a highly privileged society,” said lead research administrator Susan Perry. “The consistent through-line we found was boredom. Privilege leads to boredom, which leads to looking for things to gripe about, and many people choose to gripe about perceived privilege issues,” she added.

    “We’ve uncovered a loop. The more privilege people have, the more unprivileged they feel,” said Prentice Henson, another researcher on the project. This privilege loop has become known by researchers as the “spoiled bunch of crybabies” effect. “It turns out if you are looking at your insanely wealthy, free society that is full of opportunities for all, you should take a deep breath, quit your whining, and be thankful.”

    “There is a consistent pattern of joylessness, boredom, and self-hate at work here,” said psychologist Carl Menton, who helped write the study. “These people just can’t stand themselves. What they need most is probably a hug, if they didn’t find hugs so micro-aggressive.”

    Calling the maneuver a “cheap political stunt,” Democratic senators who were forced to vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act accused their Republican colleagues of trying to pin them down on the complex issue of whether or not it’s OK to let newborn babies who survived a murder attempt die on the table.

    “This is a nuanced discussion,” said Senator Kamala Harris, who voted against the act. “I mean, should we or shouldn’t we murder babies? It’s not really cut and dry for many Americans. What if the baby is inconvenient? What if the mother has already decided it’s a nuisance and might interfere with her school or work? What then?”

    Wildly gazing into television cameras as though in a staring contest with the American public, Senator Cory Booker said, “My associate Kamala is right. A mother doesn’t want a baby and tries to kill it. Then it comes out anyway and is just sitting there crying. Nobody likes crying, right? I mean, this is obviously a decision for a mother and her medical provider. It’s a toughie.”

    The Democrats who voted against the measure, many of whom are running for president, pointed out that they would need to take a high school philosophy class before they could even begin to explore all the facets of the difficult question of whether or not we can kill living babies just out of the womb, or at least watch an episode of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood to develop that kind of moral reasoning.

    At publishing time, these same senators announced their plan to lecture the nation on “black and white” issues of morality like gun control, paying for other people’s college debt, and taking more of your money by force.

    After a recently elected democratic socialist politician suddenly began using authoritarian, elitist-sounding language mere weeks after getting her first whiff of power, every single person in the country who’s never read a history book expressed their shock and surprise at the sudden transformation.

    The woman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, tweeted “We’re in charge” in the context of a proposed sweeping government takeover of the economy, saying her critics who haven’t proposed an alternative were “shouting from the cheap seats.” She also declared “I’m the boss, how about that?” in a recent video interview. The statements shocked certain groups of people across the country, namely, those who haven’t been in the same room as a history book anytime in the past few decades.

    “Wow, a socialist who was elected on her promises to work ‘for the people’ is suddenly telling everyone she’s in charge and they have to listen to her? That’s really weird,” said one man in Portland who dropped his world history class in high school. “I would have thought socialists never suddenly transform into power-hungry maniacs as soon as they get their first high from telling people what to do.”

    “It’s just, I’ve never heard of that happening in the past, say, 100 years or so,” he added before he had to return to his Starbucks shift, wrapping his work apron around his hammer and sickle T-shirt.

    Another thing shared in common by those who were surprised by this development is never having read Animal Farm by George Orwell, sources confirmed at publishing time.

PETA-tards enjoy throwing paint on people wearing leather or fur. They are fond of weird symbolism like dressing up as bloodied animals up for slaughter. See the parallels with the noose and bleach supposedly dumped on Jussie? It’s basically PETA-behavior, but staged as a Rightist thing

    In this the Left betrays how little they understand us. For even their hoaxes seem like bad parodies to us. It’s what a Leftist would do, only reversed in ideological polarity. It’s not what a Rightist would do. They don’t get us. Their rank-and-file doesn’t have any clue who they are dealing with anymore. Even the Media is too stuck on Leftism to understand anymore. There was a time, perhaps, when wiser Leftists would have thought “well, that doesn’t sound a whole lot like them… maybe we should check into this a little more.”
