Jesus!

It’s come to this:

What if someone told you that you were the reincarnation of Jesus, and that it was your destiny to save the world from political and economic destruction? […] Jack Cohen had his whole future before him. Just nineteen years old, he was a gifted athlete, a genius scholar, and a mixed martial arts prodigy, capable of leaving his mark in any number of ways. But his world turns suddenly upside down when a mesmerizing domme, Mary McDonald, enters his life and insists that he is Jesus 2.0 — and that it is his mission to wage spiritual and political warfare on the establishment of Washington, D.C. Beautiful, clever, yet dangerous, Mary also tells Jack that she was chosen from above to lead him to his mission. Though he tries to resist, Jack finds himself thrust into a journey of sexual, spiritual and political awakening that will forever alter his life… and change the course of the world. […] A blend of Atlas Shrugged, Fifty Shades of Gray and The Shack, mixed together with a megadose of PEDs, Kill Jesus is a wild, page-turning ride that will open your mind to a new way of thinking, while shattering any notions of a pacifist or puritanical Messiah.

Readers love it. One comments (“Surprising Book”):

I was surprised that I couldn’t put this book down. It was a combo of an eastern philosophy version of Conversations with God, UFC fighting, mommy/daddy porn, and Austrian economics mixed into one. The only thing I would change if I could was a little less of Ayn Rand but that’s just my taste. …

Vaguely Smart

Don Surber recalls a classic masterpiece of liberal good-think fluff (from 2008):

Historian Michael Beschloss: Yeah. Even aside from the fact of electing the first African American President and whatever one’s partisan views this is a guy whose IQ is off the charts — I mean you cannot say that he is anything but a very serious and capable leader and — you know — you and I have talked about this for years…
Imus: Well. What is his IQ?
Historian Michael Beschloss: … our system doesn’t allow those people to become President, those people meaning people THAT smart and THAT capable
Imus: What is his IQ?
Historian Michael Beschloss: Pardon?
Imus: What is his IQ?
Historian Michael Beschloss: Uh. I would say it’s probably — he’s probably the smartest guy ever to become President.
Imus: That’s not what I asked you. I asked you what his IQ was.
Historian Michael Beschloss: You know that I don’t know and I’d have to find someone with more expertise…
Imus: You don’t know.

Thanks, as always, for telling us (hazily) what we’re supposed to think.

Twitter cuts (#34)


(Genius.)

SSC meanders thoughtfully (but sensitively) around the topic. Favorite zingers: “… social justice was supposed to be Yale’s weapon against Caltech and Podunk. But now Yale students are using it against Yale professors and administrators, and now it’s a problem.” … “Hillary Clinton’s official list of campaign priorities include ‘ending sexual assault on campus’ … Why not just ‘ending sexual assault’? … Isn’t ‘ending sexual assault on campus’ the same kind of priority as ‘ending murder in gated communities?'”

Stereotypes III

There’s an exchange in Sam Raimi’s movie Oz the Great and Powerful, where the fake wizard, speculating on the incentives for success, says to his monkey(ish) companion and servant Finley:

“We’re going to find this wicked witch. Steal her wand. I’ll get that big pile of gold. And you can have a nice pile of bananas, alright?”
“Bananas. Oh, I see, because I’m a monkey? I must love bananas, right? — That is a vicious stereotype.”
“You don’t like bananas?”
“Of course I love bananas. I’m a monkey. Don’t be ridiculous. I just don’t like you saying it …”

(I seem to remember Sailer citing a similar joke at some point — probably from a more reputable source.)

Quote note (#178)

Intense:

The academy demands a total identification with its principles, practices, and values. It’s like a religion, and sometimes it’s like a cult. If you leave it, there will be a void. You will lose your sense of self. You’ll lose a large chunk of your social network and support system. You’ll lose the future that you anticipated for yourself. Acknowledging these losses is essential to the grief and eventual healing process. You can relate all of this to Kübler-Ross’s stages of grief. […] I urge every client that I work with on the post-academic transition to seek professional help with a therapist …

Wayback Privilege

Futurism is way too white male. The retrofutural Left-Molbuggian argument clinches it:

Time travel … is another thing that is a distinctly white male preoccupation — going back in time, for marginalized groups, means giving up more of their rights.

(Adopted from here, which is funny, despite the pitiful pandering.)

Peak Insanity

“Why, oh why, is this happening to us?” (The human species is too stupid to live.)

(Via.)

Worth it just for the Bedlamite euphemism for the economy — “the capitalist sector”.

If you’ve not had enough of sucking upon a weeping psychotic eyeball yet — (also from Dark Albert), there’s this. They’re never going to stop doubling-down. Probably a good time to start thinking realistically about where ‘hitting bottom’ is going to lead.

Royal Blessings

Neoreactionary Royalism builds upon a tradition of masterful public relations that dates back over three centuries:

Unfortunately George I couldn’t speak English. He had rehearsed a little speech to make when he landed in England, to reassure the English that he had come for the good of all. He got the grammar mangled though, and proclaimed: “I haff come for all your goods!”

… can really mess up your head (and your blog).

This detailed account of exactly how LGF lost everything — starting with its mind — is a comedy masterpiece. My single favorite fun fact:

LGF decline stats, Dec 2012. Has a list of the top 21 most prolific commenters on LGF in 2007. All but 2 are now banned.
