There’s a lot of hypocrisy going around right now.
First, let’s start with the science fiction types. Now, Vox Day isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. He’s not always mine — but he’s not always bad, either. Now, on the other hand, there’s Marion Zimmer Bradley. It turns out she was a raging pervert, a child-rapist, and covered for her husband’s crimes. She’s one of many in the SFF community who turns out to be either a child molester or an apologist for them. Nobody is doing nearly the distancing from her that they did with Vox — because she was something of a pioneer with regards to women and SFF.
So crimes are okay if you’re ground-breaking, or you’re the right political bent, but not okay if you’re Vox Day, because he said something borderline racist? Racist language is worse than real child abuse? Really? Okay — glad we know where those assholes stand.
Next up, let’s talk about the cheerleader who shoots animals. Personally, I don’t hunt, but that’s just me. I would if I had to, but whatever. For the last few years Democrats have been running this bullshit campaign about a “War on women” because people don’t want to pay in order to make other people’s sex lives easier (which is what me paying for your birth control comes down to — I’m paying for you to have sex), and because some candidates said foolish things. Then an actual Democrat running for congress says that he’s offering a $100,000 bounty for nude pictures or videos of this girl (she’s 19 I think) because she was hunting animals.
How’s that not a war on this girl? You want to humiliate and embarrass her, ruin her life, expose her private moments (and her privates) because she engaged in legal hunting? That’s not even on the same level as the hunting — those were animals. This is a real human young woman and she’s being attacked because of something she did on her own time and dime. Hey — it’s her body, if she wants to hunt with it, buzz off.
There’s probably more I’m forgetting, but both of those are just rotten examples of humanity. MZB should be exhumed and launched into the sun and people should stop apologizing for what she did — she was a fucking rapist, just like Roman Polanski. But they get a pass. Oh wait, one more —
So Israeli teens are murdered and then Hamas starts sending rockets into Israel. Israel defends themselves by firing back and ISRAEL is the bad guy?
Of course these are the same nuts who want to take guns away and make it harder to defend yourself against criminals. Which makes me wonder just where their heads are. It’s okay to be a criminal and a murderer but not to defend yourself from one? Really?
I don’t even know where to go with all this. It’s mind boggling how people who are always accusing others of criminal behavior, racism, and being bullies turn out to be defending criminal behavior, antisemitism, and bullying! The left just projects its own issues onto everyone else: War on women? We target kids and defend rapists. Protecting innocents? UNLESS THEY’RE ISRAELIS! Racism? UNLESS THEY’RE JEWISH!
How can you people look at yourselves?
