#BernOuts Explained – They Covet What They Don’t Have

A funny image, indeed! It is also, however, very pointed in its humor and very fundamentally true in its message. The primary reason for Bernie Sanders’ aborted rise to provenance and his continued employment and occasional news coverage was based upon the #BernOuts and #Sandernistas coveting what they didn’t earn and don’t have. In point of fact, Bernie’s entire platform could have been summed in the word, “Envy.”

Yes, they envy what they don’t have and hate those that have it. In their entitled mindset, it’s just not fair that they don’t get anything and everything they want, when they want it, and without the need to work for- or make sacrifices in order to get it. That’s the #BernOuts explained in a nutshell.

Fauxcahontas’ Failure

Fauxcahontas' Failures Are MyriadFauxcahontas’ Failure Of Gendered Wages

Once again Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren aka the Waba Squaw aka Fauxcahontas has made ripples across the internet and, once again, it’s because of her own failure. This time it’s her failure to “walk” as he “talks.”

In 2016, the Waba Squaw ranted that Equal Pay Day was a A National Day Of Embarrassment.

Today is Equal Pay Day, and by the sound of it, you would think it’s some sort of historic holiday commemorating the anniversary of a landmark day that our country guaranteed equal pay for women. But that’s not what this is about. Not even close.

I cannot believe we’re still standing here debating whether a woman should get fired for asking what the guy down the hall makes.

#EqualPayDay isn’t a national day of celebration. It’s a national day of embarrassment.

The game is rigged against women and families, and it has to stop. It is 2016, not 1916, and it’s long past time to eliminate gender discrimination in the workplace.

So far, that was just another tired rendition of the annual Feminist screed about women’s wages vs. those of men. Prima facie, it’s no more of a failure than any of its predecessors were or its successors will be. The specific failure on Fauxcahontas’ part was that she either didn’t know or didn’t that her own house was not in order.

It seems that Warren pays her female staffers significantly less than she does her male ones. Indeed, apparently the gendered “wage gap” in her staff outstrips America’s national average.

Last year’s figures, showing that women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year.

However, women working for Warren were paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

The median annual earnings for women staffers, $52,750, was more than $20,000 less than the median annual earnings for men, $73,750, according to the analysis of publicly available Senate data.

When calculated using average salaries rather than median, the pay gap expands to just over $26,051, or about 31 percent.

Consistent with previous Free Beacon analyses of Senate salary data, only full-time staffers who were employed for the entire period in question were included in the calculations.

It be easy to just chalk this up to yet more hypocrisy from a Leftist, but think that’s unfair. I tend to think of it as more of an unavoidable failure on Fauxcahontas’ part than it is hypocrisy. I’m fairly sure that Warren wanted to have a more equal pay distribution by gender but couldn’t manage to do it because there were simply not enough women who were equally or better qualified for the mid-to-higher positions which she needed filled, which in turn skewed to average in favor of men. This also seems to me to compounded by men being more likely to bargain for higher starting salaries than women seem to be.

You see, the “Wage Gap,” as it is so often presented, is a pernicious myth that is promulgated by certain sorts to fulfill their own agendas and line their own pocketbooks.

Let’s all face facts. If this supposed “Wage Gap” actually existed as it is presented rather than as the result of the average woman’s work-life balance choices, this have created what amounted to an arbitrage opportunity in terms of human capital that even moderately business savvy people would have already exploited to great effect. They would have form firms comprised solely or primarily of these underpaid women and out-competed other firms with their comparatively over-paid men. The result of this arbitrage would have been to inevitably to close such gaps until they were no larger than the transaction costs of the arbitrage endeavor. But, of course, there’s no visible signs of this ever having happened…

#BlackNipplesMatter

So today, being the Sunday closest to closest to Women’s Equality Day, Aug 26, is Go Topless Day. Today, women will be encouraged to go topless in public and, in many cities – I Love NYC – there will be parades and such.

In other words, once again the Feminists refuse to acknowledge, much less check, their White Privilege and engage in mass public displays that showcase their racial and cultural insensitivities – and lack of historical knowledge. Once again the Feminists reinforce the fact that feminism is a White Thing and that the different views, histories, and experiences of Black women are meaningless to them and their narrative.

So what we need is a “counter movement” like #BlackNipplesMatter or maybe #FreeTheBlackNipple so that Black women can so visibly campaign for their own reasons for being topless in public.

#BlackNipplesMatter

Truly, things like #GoTopless and #FreeTheNipple are the same as #AllLivesMatter. They further marginalize the plight of Black women by ignoring the different and great oppression they suffer from having to cover their breasts.

The Why Of #BlackNipplesMatter

Firstly: Feminism has from its sociopolitical inception been a White phenomenon and has always been firmly rooted in racism. This is largely due to the disparate goals and experiences of White and Black women but is never the less a historical fact. Hence, any fruit from the poisonous tree of Feminism is tainted by that history.

Secondly: The choice of the closest Sunday to Women’s Equality Day for Go Topless Day is stunningly racially insensitive. Women’s Equality Day commemorates the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the privilege to vote. Yet that didn’t in practice allow Black women that privilege. It was the 1960s before Black woman were effectively enfranchised in any number. Nor is there any evidence that the Feminists of those days were in any number particularly bothered by this state of affairs.

Thirdly, Finally, and Most Importantly: Go Topless Day is solely based upon the idea of gender equality and that ignores the fact that Black women may not approach this topic on those very limited terms. For Black women, women whose pre-Diaspora cultures did not include the covering of women’s breasts as the norm, forcing them to do so is just another case of cultural genocide against Blacks. Ignoring that is just yet another example of Feminists silencing the voices and stories of Black women by saying that only White reasons matter.

jonolanAnd yes, in the sadly likely event that some of you don’t get it, this was sarcasm and dark humor. I was primarily lampooning and ridiculing the idiots of the #GoTopless and #FreeTheNipple movements who are complaining about not being allowed to go topless when it is only illegal for them to do so in 3 states, and unlegislated either way in 13 others, and expressly legal in 34.

And yet, the thing is that none of the arguments I made in sarcasm against #GoTopless and #FreeTheNipple or in favor of something like #BlackNipplesMatter or #FreeTheBlackNipple aren’t exactly the sort of arguments that “Afrocentric” SJWs wouldn’t feel perfectly justified to make in all sincerity.

And therein is the problem with being sarchotic. 😯
