The Real Deplorables

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke1/24/17
In a recent viral Facebook post, a conservative woman found it necessary to point out that she wasn’t a “disgrace to women” for not supporting the Women’s March on Washington. Of course not. Saying otherwise is a bit like having called a soldier a disgrace to soldiers for not having supported the My Lai Massacre.

One DC marcher held a placard stating, “I am more than my v****a.” This was clear: She was also a mouth and a sign.

British journalist Katie Hopkins, who attended the Saturday event, cited the above message and pointed out that possession of such an anatomical feature “is a matter of biology, not a political argument” — and that the marchers had no political arguments. Theirs was a collective tantrum.

Madonna spoke at the rally, dropped f-bombs, led the throng in chanting “I’M NOT YOUR B****!” and then, quite ironically, complained that “Good” didn’t win in the election. Hopkins quipped that she didn’t “even know Good was a candidate.” If he was, though, Madonna should have told us whether Donald Trump is the Bad or the Ugly. Then we’d better know what to expect the next four years.

But Madonna, don’t preach; you’re in trouble deep. It’s not just that the Secret Service is now investigating her for saying at the march that she thought about “blowing up the White House.” It’s that she’s blowing up her own life and helped blow up our culture.

After peddling sexuality to make money and demonstrating a pathological unwillingness to constrain herself, Madonna has (as a parent must) tried to constrain her children. Unsurprisingly, however, son Rocco Ritchie rebelled against the immaterial girl and now lives with his father.

The 58-year-old pop tart has also become the Peter Pan Syndrome personified and is clearly unhappy, as 2016 on-stage meltdowns evidenced. Is this woman, whose own ship is listing badly, one to advise on the ship of state? Madonna, take the log out of your own eye before worrying about the speck in Donald Trump’s.

Actress Ashley Judd spoke at the rally as well (and as badly). Perhaps now too dependent on having others write her material, she recited a poem disgorged by a 19-year-old Dunkin’ Donuts worker which included the line, “I feel Hitler in these streets, a mustache traded for a toupee.” What profundity! Move over, Whitman and Yeats — you’ve just been dunked on.

In the same vein, there were march messages such as “This p***y bites and she slays,” “P***y power — it’ll grab ya’,” “B*****s get stuff done” (finally, some specificity!), “Ovaries before brovaries,” “My p***y bites,” “Utereses before duderuses” (so obsessed with sexual body parts but can’t spell them?), and “Trump is a big p***y.” They forgot to say he smells and has cooties.

These were, mind you, among 150 slogans provided for protesters to choose from because, well, no one could ascend to such heights of intellectualism all by himself.

Additionally, many marchers wore pink “p***y hats,” which, stated, would “Unite Millions at Women’s Marches Around the World.” If men held a rally and wore doggy hats with phallic symbolism, would they be called brave or boorish, be exalted as protesters or excoriated as pigs?

The march was pointless, classless and brainless, but not harmless. One common theme was anger at certain crass comments Trump made in the past. To combat this, the march’s leaders and their lemmings decided to be crude, lewd and even more crass in the present. It’s much like trying to correct your child’s cursing by cursing him out.

A famous sentiment used to justify such behavior, and one written on a protester’s sign, stated, “Well behaved women seldom make history.” This is like complaining that well behaved children seldom make a mess, for empowered ill-behaved people often do make history — and make a mess of it.

Contrary to this was the father of our nation, George Washington. He defeated his time’s greatest power and won our nation’s independence, all while being a pillar of civility. Not only is he known for helping popularize 110 “Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior,” but in 1776 he issued general orders to the Continental Army condemning the practice of “profane cursing,” writing that every man of “character…detests and despises it.”

Seeking rights without character is like seeking health without nourishment. Washington himself observed, “Human rights can only be assured among a virtuous people” while fellow founder Samuel Adams warned that “public liberty will not long survive the total extinction of morals.” The DC vixens-cum-vice peddlers should take note.

Fortunately, there are millions more women making history by, every day, molding the next generation to be well behaved — and to not mistake boorishness for bravery and sexual snake oil for sophistication.

    Good usually isn’t an option in a presidential election. No doubt Madonna would consider Trump the Bad option. I could easily see the Fire Witch as either Bad or Ugly. And of course, Trump’s hair is his own — no toupee. He actually had someone test that at a rally. As I commented elsewhere, the marchers were celebrating Hate in the name of love.

    I have a penis. Therefore I am a victim.

    Really makes you wonder how much “penis envy” there is in all this, for it sounds nonsensical to think that having a penis makes one a victim. On the other hand….

    I could not even stand to hear anything such women have to say. Everything about them was so revolting to me. Their speeches (?) made me certain that Rush Limbaugh is right when he says there is a new kind of stupid out in the world. This victimology game is part of the new stupid.

    When I was young it was said that in the Nazi camps the very most depraved workers were the women. I have always believed that bad women are much worse than most bad men. That must make me sexist.

    Penis envy must be a very sad affliction if these women are any example of sufferers.

    If it is true that when your enemy/opponent is making a fool of her/him self, step out of the way, I hope these people of the insane left just keep on truckin’.

    I had numerous reactions to Saturday’s march: (1) I wouldn’t be surprised if it caused normal men to go gay or prefer goats; (2)they deserve the men’s version of this march– 200,000 men screeching obscenities at the top of their lungs while wearing hats with their favorite appendage sticking out of the top of their heads (really too funny to visualize– time to sell tickets and make popcorn); and, (3) Give me the “toxic masculinity” that these nutter women are ranting about any day—Please!!

      Great observations, M.

        Hi Brad–
        My final thought was that for all their wailing about the inability to crash through glass ceilings, these women seemed to have mastered the art of crashing through the previously male, crass-boor floor– In terms of vulgarity, “how low can you go” seemed to be the standard–Very few men could out-crude the exhibition on Saturday– Ironically, they truly out-Trumped Trump in terms of gawd awful antics– They made Trump look like a piker in comparison when it comes to cringe-worthy behavior–and that’s going some…..

          We need to take time every day to contemplate the good, the decent, the quiet, the honest, and the genuine. What you say is so true and all the more reason to try to keep our sleeves clean even while wading through the muck. This stuff is just too bizarre.
