Watch and Learn

Posted in Politics, Society on August 20th, 2014

One of the tropes that has come out of the shit show that is Ferguson, MO is the call for all police to have to wear cameras on the persons that record all their interactions with people. This is a far less than stellar idea, especially if those video records are accessible by the public or, worse, the agenda-driven MSM.

Simple put, don’t necessarily believe your possibly lying eyes – as you might be able to see after watching the video presented below.

Police Brutality or Legal Use of Deadly Force?

For most observers it’s blatantly obvious. The police officer ordered the suspect to put the weapon down, and then shoots him as he is complying with the officers command. That’s police brutality in a general sense and an “execution style” murder in the more specific.

Such would certainly be what the average, untrained, inexperienced on the streets observer would see. It’s certainly what so many of the anti-police crowd and the ethnoguiltists would expect to see. It’s also what the MSM would definitely portray, especially since it involved a White officer and a Black perp.

And yet, this is wrong. If that’s what your eyes saw, they were lying to you, either due to a combination of lack of training and experience and perspective or due to observer-expectancy effect.

In actuality, the perp had a pistol in the back of his waistband and was reaching for it in order to shoot the police officer as he was lowering his rifle to the ground. The second officer, who had circled the building and came up behind the perp, saw it, called, “Gun!” and the first officer put the perp down with three rounds to center of mass.

No single GoPro camera footage is going to show the whole of the facts of the encounter. Nor is likely that bystander’s camera phone footage would either. Hence, demanding or endorsing the use of such devices or such behavior as the recent trend in people thinking it’s right to film the police in the normal course of their often unpleasant and dangerous duties a particularly good thing overall.

Remember this lesson whenever you’re shown a video of a police officer supposedly behaving badly or with excess force and/or aggression.

Non-Discerning Feminists

Posted in Society on August 19th, 2014

One of the Pillars of Feminism, at least the modern, degenerate Toxic Wave of the movement, is the use of false equivalencies and a total lack of discernment. Certainly, they are woefully stereotypically bad at math and the underlying logic of mathematics.

She Needs Feminism because she believes that men can rape with their minds
She Fears Being Raped By Men’s Minds?

Lest you mistakenly believe that the perniciously stupid female depicted above is an anomaly or statistical outlier, consider the recent efforts of some of the female editors at The Huffington Post to publicize what they feel is “Street Harassment.”

Feminists – Not The Most Discerning Of People

The things that they alleged men either said to them or that they merely overheard being said about them ranged from the pleasant, through the innocuous, and into but the seriously creepy and the pathetically crude. Yet the non-discerning Feminists of HuffPo present them together as if each were perfect examples of what they define as Street Harassment.

Yes, that’s right! Modern feminists draw no distinction between, “Smile” or “Can I ask you a question? Are you single?” and “I will bite off your tongue” or “Hey, Slut! Nice tits!” Nor do they perceive any difference between what is said to them and what they manage to overhear being said to someone else, presumably another man.

What makes their presentation of their agenda-driven slant of the facts is what they immediately follow their pictorial screed with:

Need help? In the U.S., visit the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline operated by RAINN. For more resources, visit the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s website. To learn more about street harassment head over to Hollaback!.

Directly, if tacitly, equating looks, whistles, honks, kissing noises, and various phrases with rape is just wrong and disgusting. Not only does it utterly devalue the threat of- and pain of suffering from actual rape, it creates a climate of gender-based fear that paints men as always being rapists or, at least, sexual predators by defining such “harassment” as an implicit threat of- and prelude to rape.

Yes, these Toxic Wave Feminists are very non-discerning. I assume this is because it’s more “fair” to foster the idea of a one-size-fits-all victimhood.

Disney’s Rebel Princess

Certainly, you don’t have to enjoy Disney’s Frozen. You do, however, have to face the fact that Elsa is Disney’s rebel princess…and in more ways than just her sexuality.

Elsa of Arendelle – Disney’s Rebel Princess

Whether is saying, “Fuck It All” to her final exams or “Let ‘Em Burn” about people who’ve hurt her or held her down, Elsa is most definitely a rebel through and through.
