Debasement of the Left
Academic, Intellectual and Moral Decay
Cultural and Intellectual Charlatans Exposed
In 2017-2018, three scholars, James Lindsay, Helen Pluckrose, and Peter Boghossian, wrote 20 fake papers using academic jargon to argue for ridiculous conclusions to bogus concepts. They submitted them to high-profile journals in fields including gender studies, queer studies, and fat studies. Seven of their articles were accepted for publication by supposedly serious peer-reviewed journals. The academic creme de la creme? Oops! The articles were accepted because they were written in the language the journals expected and reached conclusions the journals wanted to agree with. Since the academic fields were bogus and the people in those fields intellectual charlatans, the journals couldn’t see past their prejudices to recognize true “bogosity” when they saw it. They easily fell into the trap and exposed their woke B.S.
The articles were written to call out intellectual dishonesty infecting the academic world of today. The reaction was swift and nasty from people who couldn’t face getting caught in their own lies and hypocrisies. The gender studies people who deny biology, the queer studies people who try to claim queer is “normal”, the fat studies people who pretend that fat is healthy: these people are deluding themselves and they are trying really hard to delude you. If they can delude you, it will validate their lies. These intellectual charlatans have been amazingly successful to date. What’s that saying? “You can fool all of the people some of the time”. Well, it looks like time’s up. These so-called scholars in the “academic industry”are not scholars but shills for the cause. They are being exposed and they don’t like it.
Here’s an example of the word salad approach to so-called rigorous academic research that is really just nonsensical statements of nothingness. From “Rubbing One Out: Defining Metasexual Violence of Objectification Through Nonconsensual Masturbation”:
By drawing upon empirical studies of psychological harms of objectification, especially through depersonalization, and exploring severel veins of theoretical literature on nonphysical forms of sexual violence, this articles seeks to situate non-consensual male autoerotic fantasizing about women as a form of metasexual violence that depersonalizes her, injures her being on an affective level, contributes to consequent harms of objectification and rape culture, and can appropriate her identity for the purpose of male sexual gratification.
Don't understand it? It's O.K. They don't either. It's just a jumble of words. They fake their understanding gushing with praise over the insightful brilliance. Then they bluster red-faced when they are caught in their lie. They are truly embarrassed and insulted that you would engage in such a disgraceful hoax. How dare you expose our sham academic discipline. It was working so well.
History in a Blender: Lies and Obfuscation Don’t change facts.
The 1619 Project is the racial equivalent of gender studies, queer studies and fat studies. It is 100% pure bull. Nikole Hannah-Jones wrote it and got it published by the NY Times (so much for fact-checking). At about the same time other pseudo academics spoke at a symposium hosted by the Library of Congress. I would have thought the Library of Congress would have some serious standards about historical facts. But I guess not. The symposium was titled “1619 and the Making of America”. The talks were a study in historical obfuscation and fiction. I give them full marks for creativity on par with Alex Haley’s Roots. (Great story. Just not true.) Their fictional retelling of the first “20 and odd” slaves who came to Jamestown, Virginia was a masterful mix of new-age spirit gobbledegook and fictional BLM/CRT slave narrative combined with a mythical tale of native innocence pitted against the evil devil white man. The only thing they got right was that “20 and odd” slaves landed at Jamestown. The rest is full-on fiction. I call it history in a blender.
Somehow the narrative has been accepted as real by charlatan academics. The looney left and woke-aholics who want to sell the lies praise the tale as if it were true. Why they want to pretend to believe the nonsense is a mystery. And how about the supposedly smart people who are buying the narrative? Never have so many been fooled so completely by so few. I understand the academic shills believing their own bunk. I understand the looney left pushing anything disruptive. What is stunning, though, is how the military, NASA and other organizations that should be more grounded in reality and above the fray, have been totally duped. Maybe that’s why we don’t win wars anymore.
The Lunacy of the Woke Knows No Bounds
University of Connecticut law professor, Mathilde Cohan, told an audience at Sciences Po Paris and Paris Nanterre University, that eating French food is an expression of “white privilege”.
In a testament to the lunacy of the woke world, the professor professes “I would like to tell you about ‘food Whiteness’ in French culture,” Cohen begins, “By this I mean the use of food to reinforce ‘Whiteness’ as a dominant racial identity.”
“The Whiteness of French food is all the more powerful in that it is unnamed, enabling the racial majority to benefit from food privileges without having to acknowledge their racial origin,” she added. “White Christian norms are considered the default much like Whiteness itself is often construed as a neutral, non-racial identity.”
The food is “unnamed”? Really? How about Coq Au Vin, Quiche Lorraine, Café au Lait, Pain Chocolat? Escargot? French Onion Soup? Baguette? Following Ms. Cohen’s logic, Tandoori must be an expression of “Brown Supremacy''. Dim sum is an expression of “Yellow Supremacy”. Nyama Chomo is an expression of “Black Supremacy” and so on.
Apparently that feeling in the pit of my stomach wasn’t hunger. It was an urge to express my whiteness, my supremacy. And here I just thought it was time for lunch. If I ever get in trouble with the law, I know who not to call for help. My poor brain can’t comprehend why the University of Connecticut would pay this delusional lady a nickel to teach anyone anything.
If Ms. Cohen was to be analyzed by the late great Sigmund Freud, I think he would have suggested that she may be overthinking things a bit too much and that “sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”. He would also likely have diagnosed that she is, to stay with the food theme, nutty as a fruit cake. But, who is crazier, Mathilde Cohen or the University who hires her?
More Lunacy from BLM, CRT, the Woke Left
The Washington Post calls the Statue of Liberty a “symbol of hypocrisy”. The NY Times calls the flag a divisive symbol for many Americans. Congresswoman Cori Bush tweeted on Sunday, July 4th:
“When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people.
This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”
Let’s check Cori’s creds shall we? Is she proposing to give her property to the Indians and leave America? Nope. Since she doesn't seem to like America, that would be the logical thing to do. Pick another place to live. Not gonna happen. Why? Because she lives in the freest country in the world, she knows it and she is not going to live her words. It’s fake news.
Was Cori not free to run for congress and get elected? Was Barack Obama not free to run for President and get elected? Twice? Did any white people vote for him, or her? Here’s what I think about what she is saying. I think she is a “lying dog-faced pony soldier” who has no morals. I think she knows exactly what she is saying, who she is pandering to and what she gains politically by making outlandish statements she doesn’t believe but wants the publicity. She is following other race baiters like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or Benjamin Crump and the entire Democratic party. She joins the list of truly despicable racist shills who want to foment problems rather than solve problems. She is willing to divide America to get what she wants for herself - political power. Her contempt for the intellect of black America is on full display. She expects the poor downtrodden black folks to rally to her angry cause and wait for the crumbs to fall from her plate. Don’t hold your breath, downtrodden black folks. These degenerates know exactly what they are doing. They know exactly why they are doing it. And they are shameless shills. They are promoting their advancement, not yours.
From the Left to the Left. Thanks, But No Thanks. Ha Ha.
Nikole Hannah-Jones makes a mockery of the woke weenies at the University of North Carolina. First she demands tenure. But instead of telling her to get lost, they cave to the demand and offer her tenure. She then throws the tenure offer back in their face and turns them down. Another wokademic institution gets eaten by their own. The wokademics just don’t get it, They don’t learn. Who in their right mind would want to send their children to that school? What on earth can they teach them but failure?
