The Game of Thrones Season Finale Was a Crime Against Humanity and the Showrunners Should be Jailed For It

Season eight has been a flaming port-o-potty fire for the past several weeks, but the finale took the awfulness to a whole ‘nother level. This was so unbelievably bad, and yet who couldn’t have seen it coming?

Here is my running reaction as I watched the episode:

  • I really felt for Tyrion when he found Jamie and Cersei’s bodies beneath the rubble. Great acting on his part, as usual. It was by far the most emotional part of the episode for me. The assumption is that Tyrion’s tears were for Jamie but it was probably for both his siblings even as much as he and Cersei hated each other. They were his only family left.
  • But then the moment was diminished–and this has been a running theme this season–when you see how much of the castle apparently wasn’t ruined in the previous episode. Last episode they made it seem like the whole entire thing collapsed on Jamie and Cersei, but now this episode we see there’s a lot that didn’t collapse. So, like, Jamie and Cersei could’ve survived if they would’ve just stood, like, 20 feet away from where they were crushed. That broke my immersion in the episode and detracted from Tyrion’s performance, which again was stellar. I was sad for him, too. And for Jamie and Cersei.
  • Obviously like all of you, I liked Jamie’s character, but I also liked Cersei’s character a lot. I was rooting for her. I thought she had become a good ruler, ruthless and badass. Of course she was the villain of the show but I liked her because she didn’t buy into any of that nonsense about “making the world a better place.” C’mon that was all so contrived. Nobody watching the show cared about making the world a better place for the common folk, who are rarely even seen on camera. Once the show overtook the books, the hack showrunners used that term “make the world a better place” so many damn times it made my head spin. It was not an idea of Martin’s. It was modern, bleeding-heart, save-the-world, adopt-an-African-child white liberal narcissism awkwardly forced into a show about swords, dragons and ice zombies.
  • They ruined Jamie’s character arc, which had been building since like season 3, in the span of a couple episodes. He’s changed! He’s a good man now! He’s going to protect the Stark girls now. He broke his oath and killed the king because the king was about to incinerate a million innocent people! He’s going to fight for the living against the dead! He now realizes his sister-lover Cersei is a wicked monster! He’s going to join the good guys! And maybe now that the army of the dead is defeated he’ll complete his character arc and kill his evil sister and bring peace and harmony to the land!
  • Psyche: he’s gonna just smash and dash Brienne and go back to his evil sister-lover. Five seasons of character development down to tubes. Got a little fan service sex scene with Brienne, but it ended up being completely pointless. The very next day he decides he’s going back to die with Cersei. Even though he could have lived if he just stayed on the side that has dragons. And even though a big part of his character’s story was finally realizing Cersei is a monster. All of that out the window. The only reason he went to Winterfell is so they could have a fan service moment of All Your Favorite Characters Together Fighting The Ice Zombies. And the sex scene with Brienne. They just took a steaming dump on Jamie’s character.
  • Danys speech was uninteresting. The show runners thought they were so clever with the visual of her with the dragons wings behind her. I’m sure they’ll put that on a shirt and all the idiots who couldn’t see how horrendously bad this season was will buy it. It felt contrived. I just kinda rolled my eyes. Like so many other things this season, the showrunners probably thought they were geniuses for coming up with it, but in reality, I’m surprised they didn’t use that image or a similar one years ago. It’s one of those scenes that dumb people will look at and think, “Wow, that’s so deep!” How? Because it shows she’s the Dragon Queen? Like the show hasn’t been shoving that fact down our throats since 2011?
  • Jon’s conversation with Tyrion was good. It was the only moment in the past few seasons where Tyrion felt like the old Tyrion, aka the best character on the show (or second best: Tywin Lannister was the best character in the series). I guess I’m glad we finally got the old Tyrion back.
  • Jon’s true identity wound up never mattering at all. Fucking awesome. They’ll say it mattered because it made him kill Dany, given that he knew in the back of his mind she would have eventually killed him because he’s a threat to her power.
  • Um, no: I’m pretty sure Jon killed Dany because she became a genocidal maniac who roasted women and children alive for no reason. That’s why he was looking around basically in shock all throughout episode five. Wasn’t that what the showrunners were getting at? That Jon was deciding right then and there, as he was watching Dany kill everyone, that this bitch needed to go?
  • Jon’s true identity amounted to nothing. You could’ve removed that part of the story and nothing would’ve changed. In the end he’s back to being the same bastard Jon Snow he was in first episode.
  • How come it wasn’t winter in King’s Landing in episodes 1-5 but it’s full on blizzarding there now?
  • The scene where Jon kills Dany was weak. I wanted to see her death more drawn out. We needed to hear her say something after he stabbed her. We needed to know her last words. I wish they wouldn’t have made Jon surprise her with the knife to the heart mid-kiss. I wanted to see Jon slowly walk up to her and brandish his sword, then see Dany’s expression suddenly change from love and triumph to horror as she realizes what’s happening. “Jon. . . Jon?. . . WHAT ARE YOU DOING? JON! NO!! DROGON, HELP! DRACAR”–*STAB*
  • And then Jon starts crying after he does it. Come on. Bitch move. I wish he wouldn’t have looked like he immediately regretted it. Like, come on: quit crying like a little bitch. You know you did the right thing. The chick went Full Genghis Khan on that city. She was obviously out of control.
  • And then Drogon appearing: now the dragon is dumb and has no idea who killed Dany? He thinks she just dropped dead? Get real. He would have incinerated Jon on the spot. And they could have even shown this and Jon would have survived because he’s a Targaryen and can’t be burned.
  • Instead Drogon just torches the Throne because, I guess the Throne killed her!
  • Well, I guess in a way it kind of did, and I’m sure that’s the message the showrunners had in mind. They probably thought that was so genius of them.
  • But how the hell is the dragon simultaneously too dull to realize that the guy standing over Dany’s body is the one who killed her, yet poetic enough to make a symbolic political point that obsession with power will ultimately be a ruler’s demise? Get the everlovin’ fuck outta here. The writers of this show are not even a tenth as smart as they think they are.
  • Then Drogon just fucks off with the body and goes across the Narrow Sea to, uh, idk? So now there’s a fully grown, grieving, orphaned firebreathing dragon just loose in the world I guess. That will work out well. At least it’s an interesting question to ask: where does Drogon go and what does he do now? Maybe he goes to the ruins of ancient Valyria. When Tyrion and Jorah were passing through in season five they saw Drogon flying overhead, so that’s probably it. But we have no idea. I’m sure the showrunners have no idea too, they don’t care. They just wanted to be done with Game of Thrones. That whole scene was just another box to hastily check off, like everything in this season.
  • Now they’re in the dragon pit for Tyrion’s trial and it’s not winter anymore. It actually looks quite nice out. The trees are full of leaves and there’s not a flake of snow on the ground. And suddenly everyone from from all over has assembled. But I guess that’s because they established the precedent that 21st century commercial airline travel has been available in Westeros since season 7.
  • Fuck Yara. She wasn’t even there for anything. She’s only defending Danereys because she wanted to lez out and scissor with her. Plus no one cares what the Ironborn think. “Queen Yara” was not involved whatsoever in either of the two major battles this season. Sansa should’ve told Yara to shut the fuck up instead of Edmure Tully.
  • Fuck Grey Worm. He’s a robot. Everything would be perfect for the characters if they just offed him. All the unsullied would be free to scatter, and for some reason the Dothraki obey Grey Worm which I don’t understand. Literally every word out of Grey Worm’s mouth amounts to “DANY EES MY QUEEN”.
  • Sam stands up after Sansa rudely and for no reason de-pantses poor old Edmure Tully. Sam wants democracy! Yay! He’s supposed to be a progressive voice ahead of his time with an idea the world sadly isn’t ready for. But this just feels forced. Suddenly Edmure Tully isn’t the biggest dipshit in the room. Sorry Sam, love ya, but the writers really threw you under the bus there. Bastards.
  • Then Tyrion’s turn to speak comes and he proposes an idea that is so futuristic that it hasn’t even yet become reality in our own world: electing a supercomputer as president. Completely devoid of emotion and basically the internet in human form, Bran would make an interesting choice for king. He’s the ultimate technocrat, which of course is the real-world technocratic elite’s fantasy indulged: an egghead with 10 years of postsecondary schooling fully empowered to make every decision for the nation without challenge. Yes that’s what their world—and ours, of course—needs: a hyperintelligent technocrat with absolute power. A Philosopher-King.
  • But hello? Bran may be a human encyclopedia who knows everything that has ever happened but he grades out as sorely deficient in the other categories important for leadership, such as, you know leadership. There’s also negotiation, charisma, willpower, communication and toughness, but whatever. None of that shit matters. He’s the only one who doesn’t give a fuck that the throne was melted into a puddle because he has his own chair already. Crown him!
  • LOL at the fact that Dany thought her main threats to the throne were Cersei, Jon and Sansa, when in reality it’s Bran who takes her throne.
  • No moment in the whole series made more painfully obvious the technocratic elitism of HBO and its target audience of Jon Oliver-watching, college degree-having, coastal, urban, millennial professionals than the moment Bran became king. This is how our own elite here in America view things: every question in politics has a right answer and a wrong answer, everything is objective, and all we’ve ever needed to do to fix everything is give absolute power someone who has all the right answers. Spoiler alert: they believe they’ve got all the answers. So we should just give them absolute power and watch utopia unfold.
  • It can’t be that virtually all political questions are matters of competing interests rather than simply good and evil. Our supposed betters and elites are so brilliant and enlightened that they see the world entirely in black and white. It takes a whole lot of Ivy League degrees, PhDs and Senior Fellows at the Council on Foreign Relations to come up with an idea as monumentally stupid as giving some overly-educated technocrat absolute power.
  • And why is Tyrion making his whole speech basically to convince Grey Worm? I get that Grey Worm is now the military dictator with Dany dead, but the guy is dumber than a brick. He has no idea what Tyrion is saying. The only thought his pea-brain is capable of comprehending is “DANY MY QUEEN.”
  • And of course there’s no debate at all on the matter. Nobody voices a disagreement that perhaps someone else would be a better king, maybe Jon Snow, the rightful king who the show touted as the finest leader alive literally two episodes ago, who saved the world from the psychotic dragon bitch, and last but not least a guy uniquely positioned through his status as both a stark and a Targaryen to unite the whole realm. When Jon’s true identity as the rightful king was finally revealed at the end of season seven, it was one of the biggest moments in the show–or it seemed to be at the time. Now it doesn’t matter at all who Jon Snow is.
  • Why not just tell Grey Worm to fuck off and do what everyone in the show wanted to do this entire season, and what the whole show has been building towards since season one, and what George RR Martin obviously intended, and MAKE JON SNOW THE KING.
  • No, we can’t do that because GREY WORM MAD. And because the Hollywood elites who run this show are utopian technocrats who believe a PhD, or better yet, Wikipedia, would make the perfect ruler. Ugh.
  • I still can’t believe nobody stood and said “Alright, let’s be honest here: we all know Jon Snow needs to be the king, so let’s just kill Grey Worm and make it happen.” Nope. Now they’re all standing hailing their new king who’s title is apparently “Bran The Broken,” not Bran the Brilliant, or Bran the Guy Who Knows Literally Everything. Gimme a break.
  • All the sudden Grey Worm is calling the shots the second Bran makes his first order as king? Fuck Grey Worm. My goodness. This guy is just in the way of everything good. And why the hell is Grey Worm so mad at Tyrion? Tyrion didn’t do shit to Grey Worm. It doesn’t affect Grey Worm a bit that Tyrion freed Jamie against Dany’s wishes. Grey Worm is literally the worst. He’s enforcing the rules of a queen who has been dead for weeks. This is so stupid. Someone needs to tell him his queen is dead, he has no dick, and that he needs to shut the fuck up and go back to the stupid desert hole he came from.
  • So as a compromise they decide to send Jon Snow to the Night’s Watch, which apparently still exists for some reason even though the Wall’s collapsed and the White Walkers are dead. And now the Wildlings are cool with everyone to the south so there’s really zero point to the Nights Watch. Zero.
  • I guess now the Night’s Watch is just a government-funded men’s club/penal colony where guys can go hunt and drink and fuck around in the wilderness as long as they promise to never boink another chick again. Sounds like a good deal considering now that there’s no actual threat for the Nights Watch to protect the realm against, so the vows don’t mean shit and won’t ever be enforced because the whole organization is a joke. The Night’s Watch is now the Westeros equivalent of White Collar prison where they send all the rich kids who get in trouble. If you have political clout in Westeros you can avoid the gallows and have your misbehaving, spoiled rich kids sent to Club Fed On The Wall instead.
  • And how the hell does Grey Worm know Jon killed Dany? Hello? There’s no body. The dragon flew off with it. Was Jon a dumbass and admitted to it? Did the showrunners make him that monumentally stupid? Hey dummy: no body no crime. Jon could have dipped out of the throne room and said “idk where she went, bro. Probably flew off with her dragon to burn some more innocent children seeing as there’s none left here. You think I killed her? Where’s your proof, Grey Worm? Kiss my ass, you cockless dummy. I’m the king now.”
  • Jon got utterly screwed this season because the too-clever-by-half showrunners wanted to THUBVERT EXTHPECKTAYSHUNTHS. Jon didn’t get to kill the Night King—y’know, the whole reason he was brought back from the dead—because the showrunners thought it would be Too Obvious. Jon couldn’t be king even though George RR Martin explicitly set it up for him to be king, because Everyone Would Be Expecting It. And as we all know that’s the only thing that can make a movie good: if it subverts our expectations.
  • Hey dummies: EVERYONE KNEW FRODO WAS GOING TO BE THE ONE TO DESTROY THE RING. EVERYONE KNEW HARRY POTTER WAS GOING TO DEFEAT VOLDEMORT IN THE END. EVERYONE KNEW LUKE SKYWALKER WAS GOING TO BE THE HERO IN THE END. The fact that we knew all these things did not in any way detract from Star Wars, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. My goodness. It doesn’t matter if the audience knows the destination AS LONG AS YOU MAKE THE JOURNEY MEANINGFUL, MEMORABLE, COMPELLING, BELIEVABLE AND SATISFYING. But apparently these two blithering idiots Dan and Dave felt they weren’t capable of doing so, so they took the coward’s way out and SUBVERTED OUR EXPECTATIONS by ruining virtually every major character arc in the show.
  • God these guys are the worst.
  • And to make matters worse Jon is still being a bitch about killing Dany. He’s whining to Tyrion about not knowing whether he did the right thing. Dude, it’s obvious to everyone you did the right thing. That’s what the showrunners intended us to think. All the other characters know it was right. Now the showrunners are making it seem like Jon has regrets over killing the psychotic genocidal child-murdering megalomaniac? This writing is so unbelievably awwwwwwwful.
  • What’s stopping the main characters from making the gesture of sending Jon to the wall just so Grey Worm finally shuts the fuck up, and then having Grey Worm and his stupid cockless soldiers all murdered in their sleep, and then bringing Jon back? This can and should happen. George RR Martin, the guy who brought you the Red Wedding, would totally do something like this.
  • But no: Jon has to go to the Night’s Watch for the rest of his life because GREY WORM MAD.
  • When Jon leaves, there are Night’s Watch guys there to escort him. How? Wouldn’t everyone in the Night’s Watch have deserted the moment the Wall fell? Why would anyone feel the need to keep the Night’s Watch going after the events that just took place? Don’t you think the guys up there would have all just said, “Okay this is pointless, let’s get the hell out of here and go somewhere warmer.”
  • This is why I haven’t been able to enjoy any of this season: literally every five seconds something happens that totally breaks my immersion in the show and makes me go, “Wait, this makes absolutely zero sense.”
  • Jon could’ve just challenged Grey Worm to a trial by combat, whooped his ass and stayed. Yes, Jon would’ve won, because Jon has a dick and Grey Worm doesn’t.
  • Wait. WHAT?? Grey Worm and all his dickless buddies are now fucking-off to the Isle of Nath, where Grey Worm’s other dead bitch Missandei is from?
  • So you’re telling me that this guy Grey Worm, who is literally the sole reason Jon Snow is being sent away, is now leaving the continent, and Jon still has to leave? Everyone else has to go along with Grey Worm’s ruling even though Grey Worm is leaving the continent? This is so unbelievably stupid. I hate this show so much.
  • Sansa to Jon: “I wish there’d been another way.” YEAH, THERE IS ANOTHER WAY: watch Grey Worm and his dickless buddies sail off, wave goodbye, and then say, “Okay Jon you’re good, you can stay. The dickless dummy is gone now.”
  • It’s impossible to put into words how idiotic this show has become.
  • Okay, now Jon’s leaving and I don’t care about anything else. There’s like 10-15 minutes left in the finale and I want to fast forward through it all because literally all the questions have been resolved. They’ve been resolved horrendously, but they’ve been resolved. So there’s no tension or uncertainty anymore. This is not anything like I would have imagined this show’s final minutes to end. If you told me back in 2014 that I would be wanting to fast forward through the final 15 minutes of Game of Thrones, I would never have believed you. And yet here we are.
  • Arya’s sailing west. Cool, too bad we’ll never get to see what she discovers.
  • Brienne is writing some Nice Things about Jamie Lannister in the Big Book of Knights. Whoopdie-fucking-do. The guy’s character arc was completely obliterated by the writers, so Brienne has literally no reason to feel sad for Jamie: he took her virginity, made her fall in love with him, then abruptly left to go be with his sadistic ex/sister and was crushed to death by a collapsing castle (and that’s because he happened to be standing in the only part of the room that actually collapsed).
  • Brienne can write about all of Jamie’s accomplishments but it doesn’t matter because the idiotic show deprived him of his final moment of redemption that it had been building up to since season three. And Brienne’s last words for Jamie are “Died protecting his queen.” Are you kidding me? That’s Jamie’s moment of redemption? That he deserted the good guys to go back to the villain? I’m supposed to feel good about this? This show has so many plot holes it’s become a paradox. Jamie didn’t even die heroically like he was supposed to. How can we–or Brienne–feel good about him?
  • You know a show is horrible when you’re not mad at the characters for the things they do, but instead you’re mad at the writers for making the characters do them.
  • Oh, look: Sam and his buddies at the Citadel wrote the whole history of the show. Ripped straight out of Lord of the Rings. And let’s have a joke at Tyrion’s expense–“Teehee! The dwarf isn’t even mentioned in the book! LOLZ” Okay, fine, have a joke at Tyrion’s expense but this means the Maesters who are supposedly the wisest guys in Westeros are complete fucking idiots. Tyrion was obviously a central part of the story and is the sole reason the current King of Westeros is even on the throne.
  • Bronn makes an appearance. The writers don’t even let him crack a joke though. Did I mention the writers are horrible and should all be given lifetime bans from every studio in Hollywood, evicted from their Los Angeles-area homes and deported to Canada immediately?
  • King Bran (honestly, I kinda like him as king, even as much as I hate the idea of it and how this has all played out) says he’ll go find Drogon and possibly warg into him, meaning King Bran now has his very own personal dragon that he can pilot with his mind.
  • Bronn is the Lord of Coin? The Treasury Secretary of Westeros? A glorified accountant? A bean-counter? Instead of the Lord of Roughing People Up & Assassinating Enemies of the Crown? Whose idea was this? I guess it SUBVERTED OUR EXPECTATIONS™, though!
  • Okay, now they give Bronn some cheeky lines. He’s concerned about the brothels being destroyed. There’s the Bronn we all know.
  • Now that I think about it, how the hell does Bronn even end up here? Nobody but Tyrion even knows who he is. He fought on the other side of the war between Dany and Cersei, and that’s just ignored? Tyrion must’ve just told Bran, “Hey so I owe this guy Bronn Highgarden in exchange for him agreeing to not kill me the other week. I know he fought against our side in the war and I know you’ve never even met the guy in person, but can we give him one of the biggest and most valuable castles in the realm and make him the Master of Coin?” And Bran’s like, “Alright sure.”
  • And they’re back to Jonny Snow, now arriving at the Night’s Watch, even though, again, there’s no reason for him to be there, and there’s no reason for the Night’s Watch to even exist.
  • Now Arya’s leaving, but we’re never going to see where she goes. And Sansa is back to being Queen of the North, like she was for the past two seasons, but now I guess it’s a big deal because the North is officially independent now, even though Sansa was in open rebellion against Cersei the whole time and didn’t recognize Dany’s legitimacy ever. I guess the only difference now is Sansa has a crown. Cool. Good for her. She’s hot.
  • Jonny finally gets to reunite with Ghost, and we’re supposed to feel all warm and fuzzy inside about this and forget that there was no good reason for Jon to ever let Ghost go in the first place in episode four. Okay, I’ll admit, it did make me feel warm and fuzzy. I can’t help it. I’m a sucker for dogs.
  • Now Jon and the Wildlings, who are apparently the Night’s Watch now, are leaving to go on an excursion north of the wall for some reason, even though there’s nothing out there anymore. I guess they’re gonna just walk around in the freezing wilderness and come back? Whatever effect the idiotic writers intended this closing scene to have on the audience is not entirely clear, but I can tell you that I’m not feeling it, whatever it is.
  • And that’s how the show ends. With a big, “. . . . . . .oookay. . .?
  • They didn’t show King Bran wearing a crown? Why not? Dumb.
  • One thing that’s been annoying as hell about season eight: the idiotic fanbois still delusionally clinging to this show and hearing no evil, speaking no evil and seeing no evil. When you bring up the fact that almost nothing in this season was believable, they retort, “It’s a fantasy show with ice zombies and dragons; it’s not supposed to be believable! DUHHH.” As if this excuses the fact that there’s a gaping plot hole literally every five seconds this season.
  • Hey, geniuses: we’ve already accepted that the world itself in which Game of Thrones takes place is fictional and fantastical and unrealistic. But that doesn’t mean nothing INSIDE that world has to make logical sense. How is it so hard to understand this? In these idiots’ minds if I’ve accepted the fact that this show has dragons, I’m also supposed to accept the fact that these characters can suddenly travel across an entire continent in the span of an episode for no other reason than that the plot demanded it and the showrunners wanted to wrap things up as quickly as possible so they could get to work on defiling the Star Wars franchise even more than Disney already has.
  • I just hated virtually everything about this season. It may have been the worst season of any show in television history. And it’s so uniquely bad not because the writing was corny, or the scenery looked cheap, or the CGI was bad or the premise of the show was dull—no, none of that was the case. It was bad because the showrunners simply didn’t give a fuck. They released an unfinished product.
  • It’s like a video game that comes out and is full of so many glitches and bugs the game is unplayable. It’s like if I’m typing away at a paper due at midnight, and when midnight strikes I just submit my unfinished product with no editing, proofreading or refining. My teacher’s reading through it wondering why some paragraphs just abruptly end mid sentence, or why my notes in parentheses saying (explain this more) and (flesh this section out more) were included in the final draft. That’s this season.
  • To say the showrunners did a disservice to Game of Thrones by having the gall to actually release this abomination to the public is a colossal understatement.
  • What they did was the equivalent of a homebuilder just stopping the project abruptly mid-build and handing the keys to the new homeowners while the house still has plywood floors, no insulation on the outside walls, no baseboards, and unpainted drywall with the screws still visible.

This show’s ending was terrible. I didn’t enjoy it because this is how it should’ve ended:

Screen Shot 2019-05-21 at 3.00.01 AM.png

Jon should have put his woman in her place, took the Throne which was his by birthright, and began his stern yet just rule of the Seven Kingdoms. King Jon Starkgaryen, First of His Name, would have overseen an era of peace, prosperity, unity and order. His heirs would marry Sansa’s, because incest is cool in this show, and because it would ensure harmony between the North and the South.

I did, however, like the show’s lesson that women just can’t be trusted with power because they’ll inevitably turn into murderous psychopaths. Leave the business of governance and ruling to the men.

Thanks, Game of Thrones, for teaching us that!

This Website Doesn’t Even Show Up When You Google “Today in Politics”

Today I installed the Duck Duck Go extension for Google Chrome browser. My default search engine is now DuckDuckGo and I didn’t even have to switch browsers. I guess another feature of the DuckDuckGo extension is that it also blocks advertisers from tracking you. But mainly I installed the extension for the search engine.

I’ve been using Google Chrome as my default browser for years even though I’m fully aware Google is an evil corporation working to silence people like me. The thing is, I’m used to the browser and the search engine, and it’s so convenient to have the search bar right at the top of the screen at all times. Plus I have all my bookmarks and passwords saved on Chrome so switching to something else would be a hassle.

In the past I’ve used the DuckDuckGo search engine here and there for when I really need real search results as opposed to Google’s politically biased search results, but this required Google searching “DuckDuckGo” and then searching from DuckDuckGo, and that was kind of annoying so I didn’t do it often.

But now that you can set DuckDuckGo as your default search engine on Google Chrome I’ll be using DuckDuckGo exclusively.

From what I gather DuckDuckGo provides completely unbiased search results, meaning its algorithms show you results that are the closest thing to what you searched, rather than what the company behind the search engine wants you to see.

What prompted me to make the switch was when I Google searched for an article on this site and got no relevant results.

Then I searched for just “Today in Politics” on Google and my site didn’t even show up:

Screen Shot 2019-05-20 at 1.06.52 AM.png

Screen Shot 2019-05-20 at 1.07.13 AM.png

Wow. Awesome. As far as Google is concerned, this website doesn’t even exist.

So then I searched my site on DuckDuckGo, which I’ve used several times in the past and came away with a favorable impression because I thought its results were superior to those I got from Google. On DuckDuckGo, when you search “Today in Politics,” the site called “Today in Politics” is one of the top three results. Go figure.

Screen Shot 2019-05-20 at 1.06.24 AM.png

Look at that. There I am, third from the top.

So one of these three scenarios is true:

  1. Google is biased against me and is either pushing my website down the list in its search results or filtering me out entirely, while DuckDuckGo is biased in favor of me and is pushing my website up the list in its search results.
  2. Or, DuckDuckGo is simply unbiased and bases its results solely on relevancy to the terms searched, while Google is negatively biased against me and bases its results not on pure relevancy to the terms searched but on its own political agenda.

Now, given that I don’t know a single person working at DuckDuckGo it’s highly unlikely they’ve decided to randomly do my website a solid and boost me up in the search results. This then makes scenario 1 highly unlikely.

That means scenario 2 is almost undoubtedly true.

So the conclusion is twofold:

  1. If you like this site and read it regularly, I highly recommend switching your default search engine to DuckDuckGo.
  2. More generally, if you don’t like the idea of Google manipulating the search results it shows you to fit Google’s political agenda, and if you find it sort of terrifying that Google is basically the gatekeeper standing in between you and the vast ocean of content and information that is the internet, then I encourage you to switch to DuckDuckGo as your default search engine.

It really is scary to think that Google can control what you know. When we want to know the answer to something these days, we search it on Google.

But if Google thinks You Can’t Handle The Truth, it will either manipulate its search results to filter out all the the sites that will actually give you the truth, ensuring you never learn the truth, or it will direct you to a Uniparty-Approved website full of propaganda and lies meant to brainwash you.

On top of all this, there’s the very real possibility that Google, again a very evil corporation, is keeping track of everything you search so that one day it can/will use it against you.

Imagine one day in the not-so-distant future, when the Democrats finally repeal the First Amendment and this nation goes full totalitarian police state: the Uniparty Government is conducting purges of dissidents, and Google is passing along your search history to the government to help root out Enemies Of The State. A Google employee tips the Secret Police off to the fact that you’ve searched for things like “Breitbart News” or “how to donate to Trump’s reelection campaign” and then, the next night, you hear a loud knock at the door and are dragged off to a gulag, never to be heard from again.

Bottom line: it is now easier than ever to wean off of our Google Dependency. For your own good, switch your default browser to DuckDuckGo ASAP.

 

I Flat-Out Refuse to Discuss the “In Cases of Rape” Angle of the Abortion Debate

It is the official policy of this website that we will not allow the abortion debate to be hijacked by the “But what about in cases of rape!” misdirection.

Personally, if a woman is raped and her rapist is found guilty and convicted in court, I have no problem with allowing that woman to have an abortion. Fine.

But the reason I refuse to even discuss that aspect of abortion is because pregnancies due to rape are so rare. The overwhelming majority of abortions are done in the interest of convenience and enabling rampant consequence-free sex.

Back when it still reported facts, the New York Times reported that approximately 1% of abortions were due to rape or incest:

From the article:

“For all the symbolic importance of the House of Representatives’ move to restore the Federal financing of abortions for poor women when the pregnancy resulted from incest or rape, the practical effect would likely be very limited.

Indeed, in a 1987 survey by the Alan Guttmacher Institute in which abortion patients were asked why they were having an abortion, only 1 percent of the 1,900 women questioned named rape or incest. And 95 percent of those who mentioned rape or incest named other reasons as well for deciding to abort, the institute said.

In a separate 1979 analysis, when federally financed abortions were available in cases of rape or incest or where the pregnancy threatened the woman’s life or physical health, the institute said that a total of 3,675 women had abortions paid for by Federal money. But the institute said that it knew which category qualified for only 2,444 of the women, and of these, 72 were eligible because of rape or incest.”

So the 1987 study found 1% of abortions were due to rape, while the 1979 study found that about 3% of abortions were due to rape (72 out of 2,444).

”The 1 percent number from the 1987 survey is really the best we have on abortions because of rape or incest,” said Susan Tew, a spokeswoman for the institute. ”And there is no good hard data on how many pregnancies, over all, result from rape or incest.” #1.6 Million Abortions a Year Douglas Johnson legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee, said that while estimates vary, ”I don’t think there is any evidence for a number higher than 1 percent.”

Again, the Times piece is from 1989 and the two studies it mentions were from 1987 and 1979, but I’m sure the percent of abortions due to rape isn’t much different today. It’s just not one of those statistics that’s going to fluctuate significantly over time. The article cited two studies conducted eight years apart and both studies found that a very, very small percentage of abortions were due to rape.

In fact, if anything, the percentage of abortions due to rape is probably lower today than it was in 1989 given that rapes are less common today than they were in 1989. Contrary to the leftwing myth of the rise of “Rape Culture,” the rape rate in this country has declined significantly over the past 30 years. Trigger warning for feminists:

proxy.duckduckgo.jpg

I’ll bet your average, brainwashed American would be surprised by this chart.

So, in 1989, right around the rape peak in this country, only 1% of the abortions performed were due to rape.

But still lots of people are brainwashed to believe that rape is so common and widespread that each year hundreds of thousands–if not millions–of women need to get abortions due to being raped.

In 2017, the most recent year for which we have crime data available, there were 99,856 (call it a clean 100k) rapes in the US, a country of 325 million people. The country is 50% female, so that means there are over 170 million women and only about 100,000 were raped. That comes out to about 0.00058% of women having been raped in 2017.

There were about 900,000 abortions performed in America last year, meaning it’s not even mathematically possible for abortions due to rape to represent a significant portion of the total abortions even if every single rape resulted in a pregnancy. 

But of course this is not the case: the National Institute of Health estimates that about 5% of rapes result in pregnancy. This means that of the 100k rapes in America in 2017, only 5,000 of them resulted in a pregnancy, meaning a maximum of 5,000 out of the 900,000 total abortions that year could have been due to rape. That’s less than half of 1%.

Even if you counter and say, “But rape is unreported!” that still doesn’t change much. We can quadruple the number of rapes to 400,000 and it’s still not anywhere close to signifying a nation with a “Rape Culture” epidemic on its hands. That’s still only 0.0023% of women. And if we similarly quadruple the official number of rapes that resulted in pregnancies, 5,000, we still only have 20,000 nationwide–still a far cry from 900,000 abortions nationwide. As a percentage, it would be 2.2% of total abortions–and, again, that’s only after we agree to quadruple the official number of rapes in this country purely out of courtesy to our opponents in this extremely fact-based debate (lol).

So we’re not going to allow the debate to be reframed over the tiny minority of abortions.

We’re debating murder-for-convenience–the overwhelming majority of abortions.

I’m sorry if that debate is too triggering, or if it causes too much cognitive dissonance, but that’s not my problem.

Abortion activists need to stop pretending they’re mainly just looking out for women who were raped. Abortion activists need to own their position and own it honestly: they support murder-for-convenience.

Their main priority is not women who were raped; it’s women who want to sleep around without any consequences. That’s what abortion is all about.

They know they’re the ones taking the extreme, unreasonable position, so what they try to do is dishonestly reframe the debate so that you become the one taking the extreme, unreasonable position: “You don’t think women who are raped should be able to have an abortion?! You’re so extreme and unreasonable!!”

Not gonna happen. Not here, at least.

At this site we will not even go there.

Learn and memorize the figures above if you must, but remember that the strongest debaters do not allow the opposition to frame the debate. They do not fight on hostile turf. And also keep in mind that the other side doesn’t debate; it demonizes.

Facts ultimately will not matter to these brainwashed people because they’ve already been won over by the “WOMEN’S BODIES, WOMEN’S CHOICE” emotional propaganda. You can’t use facts to overturn emotional conviction.

So that’s why my official policy is total refusal to discuss the “What about abortions that result in rape?” aspect of it.

Nope. Sorry. Not relevant. Try again.

We will keep the abortion debate firmly centered on the question of whether or not it should be okay to murder babies in order to allow women to continue being slutty.

“MeN sHoUlDn’T MaKe LaWs aBoUt wOmEn’S BoDiEs”

You’ve probably seen this drivel all over social media.

It’s supposedly the conversation-ender in the abortion debate: “You’re a man so you don’t get to have an opinion.”

Obviously we’ll set aside the fact that the Alabama governor who signed the abortion ban is a woman, as well as the fact that there are many, many women out there who oppose abortion.

Let’s talk about what laws men should be allowed to have a say in:

Yes, what an oppressive Patriarchy this country is. *rolls eyes*

If men can’t have a say in abortion laws, then why should women have any say in child support laws? Men make the overwhelming majority of child support payments, so maybe we should only allow men to have a say in how those laws are written.

How does that work for ya, ladies?

Sounds like a fair trade to me.

Candace Owens Suspended from Facebook for Pointing out the Real Threat to Black America

Remember what free speech was like? Good times.

Sorry, Ms. Owens: You are not allowed to say this.

If you can’t read the post, here’s what it says:

“Poverty rate among blacks: 22%.

Poverty rate among whites: 11%.

Poverty rate among MARRIED blacks: 7%.

Do not let liberal supremacists convince you that white people are the problem at the same time that their policies encourage the 77% father absence rate in black households.”

Where’s the falsehood? It’s unclear but for some reason this “violated Facebook’s community standards.”

Translation: you’re not allowed to bring those facts to light.

Wouldn’t want black people to get the idea that the Democrats have done far more damage to the black community than white supremacists.

Pure political censorship.

Maybe Democrats Don’t Despise White Men After All. . .

Joe Biden’s surge to the top of the pack in the Democratic Presidential Primary has made me realize something: Twitter is not real life.

What I mean is, while most Twitter leftists are full-on anti-white, and while the Uniparty establishment is in full-on white genocide mode, most regular Democrats are not thinking about race 24/7 and are not fixated on hating white people.

The Democratic voters have not gone full anti-white. They just haven’t. Joe Biden is running away with their primary.

And in second place? Bernie Sanders. Another old white guy.

Screen Shot 2019-05-16 at 3.02.40 PM.png

The most recent polling has Biden and Sanders combining for over 50% of the primary vote. That doesn’t seem like a Nonwhite Nationalist party that despises white men and wants them wiped off the face of the earth.

Many of us came to believe—given the rise of Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Black Lives Matter, and all the others—that the Democratic Party had become almost overnight a party for and by nonwhites, and explicitly against whites.

But maybe this is not entirely the case when it comes to the voters.

I myself was quite wrong about this. On the old site I wrote a piece that predicted John Kerry in 2004 would ultimately prove to be the last ever White Male to win the Democratic Presidential nomination.

It’s very, very early in the 2020 cycle, but that now looks to be wrong. Joe Biden has a commanding lead.

A major caveat is that Biden’s success is due almost entirely to his association with The First Black President Barack Obama, who is still the most popular Democrat in America by a wide margin.

We know Biden’s popularity is entirety due to Obama because Biden ran for President twice before, most recently in 2008, and his campaign was over very quickly. He got almost no traction and was out of the race after the Iowa Caucus.

It was only after Biden was Obama’s VP that Biden became a popular figure in the Democratic Party. That’s the only reason Biden is in the lead today.

So you might say the only reason the Democrats are preparing to nominate an old white guy is because of his association with Barack Obama, but how does that explain Bernie Sanders’ popularity?

You could say respond that it’s extremely early in the election cycle (by this point in the 2016 cycle, i.e. May 2015, Donald Trump hadn’t even announced his candidacy) and that at this early stage, the candidates with name-brand recognition do the best since voters are more likely to get behind a familiar face and name.

In other words, at this early stage, voters are familiar with Biden and Bernie, and not familiar with the other names (Booker, Warren, Harris, etc.) so just give it time.

And this is an entirely fair point. Early in the primaries, the media gives the different candidates their moments in the sun. Beto had a moment. Buttgieg had a moment. That was all media generated. Both guys’ recent bouts of success were products of increased media attention; it wasn’t the other way around.

The media likes to play God, knowing that it can make candidates rise and fall in the polls simply by covering one more obsessively than the others. And so when the media starts pumping up the other candidates like Booker, Harris and Warren, it’s possible that one of them vaults into the lead.

And perhaps Biden falters as he’s exposed to more attacks from both his Democratic rivals and Trump. Remember, Hillary was extremely popular before she started running for President in 2016. Then, once she was back in the political fray, her popularity numbers plummeted back down to earth, and then some.

In politics, absence makes the heart grow fonder: we think more positively of those candidates we haven’t seen or heard from in a while. But once they pop back up, they remind us again of all the things we didn’t like about them. Perhaps this will be the case with Joe Biden, who has only just joined the race after enjoying his retirement for the past two years. It’s highly possible (in fact even probable) that once the “old” Biden comes back–the Biden everyone knows and is used to–then he will falter.

But all that still doesn’t negate the fact that right now, over 50% of Democratic voters are supporting old white guys. Whether or not those voters flip their support to some other candidate down the road doesn’t matter: it matters that they’re willing to support the white candidate at all.

This is good news. It shows that this country is not, in fact, on the brink of a race war and that racial tensions in America are not nearly as high as they seem on Twitter.

Yes, Hollywood, Academia, Big Business and Washington despise white males and are on a mission to destroy the white race in America. No, you are not hallucinating when you see all those leftists and blue checks like Sarah Jeong on Twitter spouting blatantly anti-white racism and even explicitly calling for the murder of white people.

But just because the elite hates white people doesn’t mean the masses do.

Florida Passes Law Allowing Teachers to Carry Guns at School–Hopefully, More States Follow Suit

Hopefully Florida is the first of many states to implement this no-brainer policy:

I cannot for the life of me understand why people oppose this.

“Back-to-school shopping: one bullet-proof vest.” Does this dumb person holding that sign realize she’s saying teachers are not to be trusted with guns?

Do they not. . . trust themselves with guns? Are they saying teachers are not to be trusted with guns?

Are teachers more liable to pull a gun on one of their students than some mentally defective, fatherless problem-child pumped full of psychoactive drugs?

Good God.

And this doesn’t require teachers to carry guns. It only allows them to, if they choose.

Why would a teacher oppose having the option to be armed in the era of mass school shootings? It takes a special kind of stupid to say, “No, I’d rather not have the option to be armed if and when some fucked-up kid decides to live out his twisted, deranged fantasy and become the next Nikolas Cruz.”

You have to be brainwashed beyond all hope to oppose this.

I’m sure the liberal response here will be that arming teachers isn’t the answer–gun control is the answer.

They’d prefer to just disarm everyone so only Our Lord & Savior, The Government has access to guns.

Hello, dummies? Did we not go over this with Parkland? The armed officer whose sole job it was to protect the students from potential shooters cowered in fear outside while the shooting was taking place.

It takes a while for the police to arrive after they’ve been notified of the shooting. By the time they arrive there are already many casualties.

The government cannot protect you. The government is not your savior.

And the whole idea of “gun control” is nonsensical: just because some politicians sign a piece of paper doesn’t magically make all the guns disappear.

The bad guys won’t follow the law. All you’ve done is take the guns away from good, law-abiding citizens.

You cannot un-invent the gun, no matter how badly you want to. Until you find a way to un-invent the gun, “gun control” policies are nothing more than a fantasy–and a dangerous one at that.

The bottom line is that we are in a vicious cycle when it comes to school shootings. When they happen, we publicize them all over the news (except the recent Colorado shooting where the shooter was a Trump-hating leftwing tranny, the “media” doesn’t want to talk about that at all), which only further incentivizes the next psychopath to shoot up his school. All the while our schools are the softest targets imaginable for bad people: most of the schools in this country are “gun free zones,” which are essentially huge, blinking neon signs for wolves that say “UNPROTECTED SHEEP READY FOR SLAUGHTER.”

When a store owner or a home owner experiences a break-in, he will then take steps to beef up security by buying a gun, cameras and a security system. It’s common sense. A woman who is mugged walking home one night will, at the very least, start to carry mace around in the future. Ideally she’d buy a handgun.

After more than a dozen school shootings in the past 20 years, you’d think by now we would learn our lesson: our schools are soft targets and all the bad guys know it.

The idea behind arming teachers is to discourage potential future school shooters. No longer are our schools shooting galleries for Zoloft-addled demons.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

The Left’s Latest Victim: Bikini Models

The Globalist Uniparty has made it their mission to ruin literally everything. Their latest victim? The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition:

Honest to God, I threw up in my mouth reading that.

It wasn’t the picture of the overweight woman that did it. Nothing against her personally.

It was the idiotic liberal word salad justification for including objectively unattractive women in a magazine that literally only exists to glorify attractive women.

Somehow, diversity has become the Swimsuit Edition’s greatest strength.

The Swimsuit Edition now exists to “ignite tolerance, acceptance and understanding.”

Because, you see, the reason most of us guys aren’t into obese women like the one above is because we simply have been “exposed” to enough diversity.

We guys, with our objective standards of beauty, are just uncultured barbarians who need to be reeducated by our cultural superiors.

If you picked up the Swimsuit Edition to ogle hot, scantily-clad babes, sorry bub: the Swimsuit Edition now exists to expose you to Diversity™ and make you more tolerant, accepting and understanding.

You WILL learn to love and appreciate fat chicks.

And having fat chicks in the Swimsuit Edition is only the beginning:

“Makes history.” Give me a break. Uniparty propagandists love that term “Makes history.” They use it all the time for even the most trivial nonsense. A transgender “girl” wins the state title in wrestling in Louisiana? History has been made!

All the textbooks a hundred years from now will mention it, I’m sure.

Propagandists love framing everything as “making history” because it makes the rubes more likely to support it instinctively.

Be on the lookout: anytime they use the term “Makes/make/made history,” they’re trying to force some leftist propaganda on you:

Screen Shot 2019-05-09 at 9.46.56 AM.png

Screen Shot 2019-05-09 at 9.47.10 AM.png

Like any of that stuff is historically relevant. Actually, let me rephrase that: like any of this stuff is actually historically relevant in a positive sense.

As historical markers tracking the decline of America and greater Western Civilization, yes, history will look back on these moments. When they try to make sense of how the greatest nation in history died without a single soldier from a foreign army stepping foot on its soil, these are the moments they’ll point to.

Anyway: it’s 2019 and we’re no longer allowed to enjoy pictures of chicks in bikinis like we have for the past 50+ years (the Swimsuit Edition debuted in 1964).

We need to have “progressive” bullshit shoved down our throats at literally all times.

I hope this is how everything backfires on the Uniparty Establishment.

With each passing day, they assert their dominance in more areas of American culture. They’ve been venturing further and further out from the political sphere–for instance, in the past few years they’ve tainted sports (Colin Kaepernick, transgender athletes, Super Bowl commercials), Marvel comics movies (Captain Feminism, the obviously anti-white Black Panther), and even sex with their drive to instill into women the fear that all heterosexual men are rapists.

Until recently, the Progressive Globalist Uniparty’s power hasn’t been very obvious to normal Americans. But now it’s nearly impossible for even the most politically-oblivious Americans to not notice who rules over them.

Hopefully the Uniparty’s insatiable lust for power and the inevitable overreach it entails will cause more and more normal Americans to realize what’s going on and resist it.

For many years, most normal Americans were content to allow the Uniparty to run the country into the ground so long as they, the regular Americans, were free to live entertainment-centric, materialistic lifestyles.

But now, not even that is possible. Uniparty propaganda is now so widespread and in-your-face that there is no avoiding it anymore.

The only hope for this country is that this overreach backfires and ends up redpilling a bunch of previously oblivious Americans against the Uniparty.

“You can ruin my country’s government, but not my entertainment!”

It’s sad that it has come to this, but if this is what it takes to mobilize the masses against the ruling Uniparty Establishment, then so be it.

MasterCard Prepares to Join the Corporate Assault on Political Dissidents

Another day, another freedom taken away from Thought Criminals:

“Activists have successfully forced Mastercard to hold a vote by shareholders on a proposal which, if passed, could see the company monitoring payments to global far-right political leaders and white supremacist groups.

The proposal aims to see Mastercard establish an internal “human rights committee” that would stop designated white supremacist groups and anti-Islam activists, such as Tommy Robinson, from getting access to money sent from donors using the company’s card payment services.”

“It’s been conceived by US-based political activists SumOfUs, who want to escalate the battle against white supremacists and far-right groups from tech platforms like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Patreon, and PayPal to one of the biggest companies in world finance, in an attempt to choke off donations.

“Spreading hate involves spending money,” Eoin Dubsky, from SumOfUs, told BuzzFeed News. “Whether it’s paying for online advertising or organising violent rallies, white supremacist groups need financial services from companies like Mastercard.”

Of course, when they say “white supremacists” they really mean anyone who is against the white genocide agenda.

Simply saying, “It’s okay to be white” is now treated as white supremacism.

For many decades, the term “white supremacist” has brought to mind people like this:

maxresdefault.jpg

And this:

glkjioul.PNG

That’s what most normal people think of when they hear the term “white supremacists.”

But not the left in 2019. Today’s left defines “white supremacist” as any white person who supports Donald Trump and objects to the media-sanctioned anti-white racism run amok in this country.

Anyone who doesn’t feel eternal guilt and shame for being born white is a white supremacist. Anyone who doesn’t hate white people is a white supremacist, in the left’s eyes.

Today, this is considered white supremacism:

If you don’t think MasterCard’s crackdown has any impact on your life, think again.

They’re not coming for the Skinheads. They’re coming for you.

Just Because the Government Allows us to Have Fun Doesn’t Mean We’re Free

The difference between Orwellian totalitarianism and Huxleyan totalitarianism is the permission for “fun.”

In Orwell’s world, there was no fun at all. It was pure drudgery. Sex was outlawed. No pleasure at all. No sports, no entertainment, no leisure time. And so in our minds we believe that if we are allowed to have fun—watch sports, watch porn, go to music festivals, have casual sex with many partners, enjoy movies and TV shows, lose ourselves in online content and video games—then we are not oppressed. Hedonism equals freedom!

But on the contrary: the Brave New World view of tyranny is not that pleasure is outlawed, but that it is leveraged against you and used to oppress and control you. It is a distraction. Entertainment and fun are the opiates of the masses, because without them, the masses will have nothing to do but sit and think about how awful things truly are.

Modern-day tyrants don’t want to deprive you of fun. They don’t want you to live a life of constant drudgery and seriousness.

They want you overwhelmed with superficial pleasures. Do drugs, get drunk all the time, obsess over sports and TV dramas, pour countless hours into video games, watch tons of online porn, buy Nice Things from Desirable Brands—anything but think about how corrupt the government is.

They want you distracted. They want you focused on trivial pursuits. They want your life to revolve around the next big music festival.

When you’re not wasting away in a cubicle pushing paper for some Megacorporation, they want you mentally sedated by entertainment.

People whose lives revolve around entertainment of course, in the back of their minds, ultimately feel unfulfilled. They wonder if there’s more to life than obsessing over sports, entertainment and nightlife. Materialism is unfulfilling. Most people are aware of this on some level.

They may not know what, exactly, is missing in their life, but they are at least partially aware that something isn’t right. Maybe it’s visceral, but once you get a bit older you begin to realize that you will never find fulfillment and meaning in life through entertainment and materialism. For me, this first started to dawn on me around my senior year of high school.

Yet even though most people are partially aware that there is more to life than entertainment and materialism, most people still nonetheless believe that they are free because they can enjoy superficial pleasures like entertainment, drinking, partying and materialism.

They don’t really care about the fact that they don’t have a say in government, and that voting does not have any material impact in the outcomes of the political process. They don’t care that they have no way of stopping the mass immigration that is destroying their country, or dissenting political voices are silenced online, or  that they can do nothing about the fact that male pedophile drag queens are reading stories to their young children.

They have Entertainment, so that must mean they’re free!

This is the fatal flaw of Orwell’s 1984: people who read it feel like as long as their lives don’t resemble Winston Smith’s, then tyranny has not yet arrived in the real world.

This is my great concern about why “The Revolution” may never materialize: people are content to allow the Uniparty oligarchy to do as it pleases so long as they have abundant options for entertainment and pleasure. They figure things can’t be that bad if they can still drink and party and binge TV shows.

But this view is mistaken.

The government allowing you to pursue a hedonistic lifestyle does not mean the government isn’t tyrannical and corrupt.

And so this is why, while of course it sucks that the left is ruining entertainment, it might actually backfire on them, because Entertainment is the only thing most people actually care about. Invade their country with foreigners? Meh.

Ruin Star Wars and Marvel with feminist propaganda? Now that’s going to get the people riled up.

The Uniparty had better tread carefully in its quest to spread its propaganda and values: people are starting to take notice that leftwing politics are becoming pervasive in entertainment, and they don’t like it.

Perhaps the masses will finally rise up once the Uniparty ruins entertainment by making every last movie, TV show and video game blatant Uniparty Propaganda.

Perhaps this is what it takes.
