I’ve been a little distracted this week by real world matters but I have managed to cobble together an interesting bunch of stuff that entertained and illuminated my distracted week. I hope that my selections manage to distract you from your own miserable existence as a horrible white man whose very life is an awful travesty on minorities and wymens and zee gheys and lunatics who dress up as wymens and who take nasty medicines to have zee wymens’ breasts and immigrants who have multitudes of rights even before they immigrate because they are the deserving and your time has passed, white boy.
On to it.
Leading off this week in a clear first position is the heartwarming tale of Rachel Dolezal, the American white woman who built a career out of pretending to be black and who even though she exists in a progressive paradise with all of the related opportunities and advantages, she still did not manage to pull it off successfully. (Keep in mind that if this occurred in Australia I would not be able to make those comments due to our oppressive 18c law covering racial vilification.) My favorite bit from the article:
Today Dolezal is jobless, and feeding her family with food stamps. A friend helped her pay this month’s rent; next month she expects to be homeless. She has applied for more than 100 jobs, but no one will hire her, not even to stack supermarket shelves.
Looks like she got to be black after all. On to our next item.
Have you ever heard the term feminine hypergamy and wondered what the hell people were talking about? The always erudite Rollo Tomassi lays it all out for us.
Most awkward government recruiting advertisement of all time. They used actual bureaucrats from Australia’s department of finance. Nothing in the clip about how working for the department is a responsibility to Australian taxpayers. At first I thought it was a mock video lampooning bureaucracy. But reality is stranger than fiction.
The Liberal Democrats had a pretty good response:
And a blow by blow take-down of the video. Onwards and upwards as it isn’t possible to go lower than this.
This week’s Woodpile Report. Ol’ Remus always begins his weekly report with an historical work of art. We are blessed with Pieter de Hooch’s, Card Players in a Sunlit Room, 1658. I had never before seen this painting and it took me by surprise. The beauty, the detail, the technical skill, and the imagination. 1658 the Dutch master painted that. We have regressed. The fall of Western civilization isn’t beginning now. It’s been happening for a hundred years.
James Delingpole on the great diesel disaster in the EU. Remember my climate rant the other week and how very soon the climate change cretins will be forced to grovel? It’s starting already.
Marine Le Pen lays into Merkel and Hollande. Just beautiful and tragic at the same time.
A truly inspiring rant from a pro-life teenage girl against Teen Vogue magazine. H/T to Ace.
After all that it’s time for the hawt chick of the week.
