Bleeding Cool’s SJW activism: Attack random losers, pretend you’re Jyn Erso

Earlier this week a reader named Carl informed me the new “diversity hire” over at Bleeding Cool. She, like many other writers since Nov. 8, has decided to troll the crevices of Reddit for random racist losers and pretend like The Great Reddit Terror is just around the corner.

What we are seeing unfold among modern feminists is a pathetic display of self-congratulation masquerading as cultural heroism. Writers like Kaitlyn Booth take on impotent threats like anonymous racist Rogue One trolls and then pretend they’re Jyn Erso. Meanwhile, they zip their lips on terror attacks and plots in New York, California, Florida, Washington, D.C.,  Minnesota, Tennessee, etc.

The reason for all this is simple: The few racist clowns who go to white nationalists events attended by Tila Tequila are not prone to show up on your doorstep and chop your head off with a dull knife. Bleeding Cool has every right slap an anti-Neo Nazi story related to Rogue One trolls on its landing page, but readers should know that its editors are really only giving themselves ego massages (the dirty kind).

‘Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy’ #3 Review: ‘B-Ben? It can’t be you!’

Marvel’s fall Spider-Man event, Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy, was such a sprawling story that it broke from the core book, The Amazing Spider-Man, and requires die-hard fans to also buy The Prowler. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it should raise red flags among potential customers that some issues will likely be stuffed to the brim with information to make the tale work.

DNM #3 is a perfect example of the logistical obstacles writer Dan Slott created for himself as he began to weave this story together. There is a lot — I repeat, a lot — going on, not to mention the big reveal at the issue’s end. My quick take is that he and artist Jim Cheung did a decent job juggling important tasks, but that a key character’s history is at risk of being tarnished by the time all is said and done.

Check out my latest YouTube review for a run-down events and some brief commentary on the return of a character from Peter’s past. I will probably do a more comprehensive analysis of these ASM-related developments in the near future, but until then I’d still like to hear your thoughts on DNM #3’s surprise ending.

Mark Waid and Dan Slott: How hyper-partisan writers hurt Marvel

The modern American comic book industry is a shadow of its former self. There are numerous reasons for this, but one contributing factor is the emergence of activist-writers. Companies like Marvel claim to want to reach a “diverse” audience, but these days its employees spend an inordinate amount of time demonizing nearly half of its potential customers.

Two writers who perfectly encapsulate the “activist-writer” problem for the industry are Mark Waid and Dan Slott.

France bans Down Syndrome ad from TV because smiling kids might ‘disturb’ women who had an abortion

world-down-syndrome-day

Years ago I was a substitute teacher just outside Chicago. There were days when I had the opportunity to join special education classes, which included kids with Down Syndrome. I am not lying when I say that those were some of the best kids I ever had the privilege to meet.

Given that experience, you can see one of the many reasons why a story out of France caught my eye just before Thanksgiving.  It turns out that a commercial by CoorDown titled “Dear Future Mom” is now officially banned from the airwaves. The reason? It might “disturb the conscience” of women who elected to have an abortion.

The Wall Street Journal published an op-ed on the story Wednesday:

“Abortion is legal in most of Europe, but its proponents are bent on suppressing efforts to change the minds of mothers considering it. Witness France’s ban on a television commercial showing happy children with Down Syndrome (DS).

Produced to commemorate World Down Syndrome Day, the commercial showed several cheerful children with DS addressing a mother considering abortion. “Dear future mom,” says one, “don’t be afraid.” “Your child will be able to do many things,” says another. “He’ll be able to hug you.” “He’ll be able to run toward you.” “He’ll be able to speak and tell you he loves you.”

France’s High Audiovisual Council removed the commercial from air earlier this year, and in November the Council of State, the country’s highest administrative court, upheld the ban, since the clip could ‘disturb the conscience’ of French women who had aborted DS fetuses.”

Ask yourself this question: If French courts are permitted to ban a television commercial that features smiling kids because it might “disturb the conscious” of some viewers, then what is off limits?

Answer: Nothing.

Whether you agree or disagree with abortion, then I hope you can see just how incredibly terrifying this court’s logic is from a free-speech and religious liberty perspective. People often behave like the liberties enjoyed by the western world will be around forever, but that is not the case.

“But Doug!” you said, “Why should we care about France? We sort of expect that kind of thing from the French and Europe as a whole, right?”

The truth, sadly, is that every nation has Thought Police — even the U.S.

One merely needs to check out BuzzFeed’s hit piece on the hosts of HGTV’s hit series Fixer Upper. Writer Kate Aurthur founder herself a juicy target to destroy because a popular married couple is suspected of a Mind Crime. That’s why she wrote “Chip And Joanna Gaines’ Church Is Firmly Against Same-Sex Marriage.”

Shocker — Christian family belongs to a church that does not approve of homosexual relationships.

Perhaps Allahpundit over at Hotair put it best:

“The BuzzFeed piece is proof that we’re past the persuasion stage now in the culture wars, particularly as regards gay rights, and into the bludgeoning stage, where the left feels secure enough in its gains to try to strongarm the holdouts.”

Boom.

In France, smiling kids with Down Syndrome cannot appear on television. In America, Christian couples with hit television shows have giant websites trying to find ways to destroy their career.

In France, powerful legal councils keep you off the air if you  disturb the conscience of women who had an abortion. In America, liberal reporters will try to derail your television career if you “disturb the conscious” of secular Democrats.

And with that, I will leave you with a quote by John Philpot Curran:

The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.” — John Philpot Curran.

If you do not think you have anything to learn from men who were born in the 1700s, then think again.

Milo Yiannopoulos slimed as ‘white nationalist’ by The Hill as mainstream media learns to love the outright lie

hill-milo

The 2016 U.S. presidential election exposed the mainstream media as a corrupted behemoth. Ronald Reagan had a “trust, but verify” policy with Soviets during the Cold War, and now citizens must do the same with American reporters.

WikiLeaks exposed how political networks and top pundits coordinate to undermine opponents, and voters rejected attempts by a cultural elite to label independent thinkers as a bunch of knuckle-dragging racists. For some odd reason, however, The Hill’s Julian Hattem refuses to accept reality. He used the website’s megaphone on Tuesday to blatantly lie about Breitbart News’ Milo Yiannopoulos.

He wrote:

“The retired lieutenant general President-elect Donald Trump has selected to be his national security adviser recently praised Milo Yiannopoulos, a well-known figure in the white nationalist “alt-right” movement.

The weekend after Election Day, Michael Flynn called the Breitbart News technology news editor, who was banned from Twitter this year for inciting racist and sexist attacks, “a phenomenal individual.” …

He has compared the Back Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan and previously set up a scholarship dedicated to giving money ‘exclusively to white men.'”

Lie. Distort. Shamelessly omit necessary context (i.e., lie by omission). That is the modus operandi of men like Mr. Hattem.

Mr. Yiannopoulos is an openly gay man who does not hesitate to talk about how much he loves black men— in bed. He openly rejects identity politics, and mocks it with things like scholarships for poor white people.

Mr. Yiannopoulos’ “white” scholarship, which he has publicly talked about, was created to shine a spotlight on the silliness of race-based scholarships when poverty does not discriminate.

The point (and 60 million of Donald Trump voter know this), is that poor and predominantly white towns in Michigan or Tennessee or Alabama are sick and tired of being lectured to about their “privilege.”

Websites like The Hill would rather not acknowledge uncomfortable electoral feedback, so instead they have decided that tiny gatherings of racists and losers featuring Tila Tequila (who I genuinely feel sorry for because she has psychological problems), somehow represent tens-of-millions of Americans.

tila-tequila

The Hill, like CNN and the Anti-Defamation League, would rather wallow in a worldview that allows them to turn Pepe the frog into a “designated hate symbol,” than to counter valid concerns by men like Mr. Yiannopoulos.

cnn-pepe

If you asked 10,000 Pepe-loving Reddit kids before the election about obscure nonprofits headed up by a guy named Richard Spencer, perhaps ten of them would have known what you were talking about. Regardless, media outlets like NPR now give an inordinate amount of fear-mongering free press to white nationalists.

Saying the “alt-right” is synonymous with white nationalism is like saying the Westboro Baptist Church and its clan of about 50 people somehow represent roughly 230 million Americans who identify as Christians.

These kinds of tactics, which are part of a larger strategy to demonize opponents, are cheap, despicable, and come from the very same people who will tell you not to generalize about Muslims after terror attacks on American soil.

If you want to fight back against corrupted media outlets, then you must make a concerted effort to look for the truth, call authors out on their lies, and spread the word that they cannot be trusted. Then, with each election cycle, punish the media’s lies with your vote as tens-of-millions of Americans did on Nov. 8.

Orwellian ‘Fake News’ claims on D.C. sex-trafficking story exposes true liars and deceivers

nyt-comet-ping-pong

“PizzaGate” is now being picked up by major media outlets. There is no denying it now that The New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, and Fox News affiliates in the nation’s capital have filed reports. That is the good news. The bad news is that they are liars and deceivers of the highest magnitude.

For those who are new to the story surrounding Comet Ping Pong, WikiLeaks, Washington’s 49th “Most Powerful” man and the Podesta brothers, here is the quick run-down:

  • WikiLeaks revealed roughly 50,000 stolen emails belonging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta. Some of those emails revealed that he had very bizarre friends and often seemed to really, really, really like “pizza.”
  • Individuals on Reddit, 4chan, YouTube, and other websites started looking into John and Tony Podesta’s connections (Tony is one of the biggest lobbyists in D.C. and has an art collection that features nude teenagers). One of those indiviuals was No. 49 on the GQ’s “Most Powerful” individuals, James Alefantis.
  • Mr. Alefantis (former boyfriend of Correct the Record’s David Brock) owns Comet Ping Pong in Washington, D.C. The establishment next to his business is another pizza place called Besta Pizza, which until the past few weeks had a pizza logo that was a dead-ringer for a symbol that law-enforcement agencies warn is favored by pedophiles. The guy who owns Besta Pizza worked under Bill Clinton in the Department of Justice investigating human trafficking, sex crimes, etc.
  • Mr. Alefantis’ Comet Pizza Instagram account and the accounts of his employees featured highly troubling images for a “kid-friendly” and “family friendly” establishment. (That is how the company bills itself. That is not my opinion.)
  • Comet Ping Pong features entertainers who are weirdly obsessed with sex. It has commissioned promotional work to a woman whose portfolio includes blatant imagery of sex abuse of children.
  • Those investigating this on the internet say this is clear evidence that warrants an investigation. They have been accused of creating “Fake News” by every major media outlet that has covered the story.

Read the following articles and then ask yourself why all of them either completely avoided linking to publicly available images, or weirdly tried to make it sound like this was all a partisan thing started by Donald Trump fans.

cpp-pizza-copy

This is not about Donald Trump. This is about innocent children. This is about teenagers who are lured into an establishment with grown men who make it crystal clear what kind of “pizza” is on the menu.

ping-pong-promo

sstains

bp-logo

Honest reporters do not shout “Fake! Fake! Fake! Fake! Fake!” That is not how it’s done.

James Alefantis and his employees do not get to post sexually explicit material all over the internet and then play the victim when people start talking about it, sharing the images, and wondering what the heck goes on at these late-night events featuring “Sex Stains.”

jc-ping-pong

Americans who are revolted by YouTube videos of Comet Ping Pong performers making comments about pedophilia (i.e., “We all have … preferences.”) are not “fevered.” Their outrage is healthy because normal people don’t take little kids to that kind of “performance.”

fox-5-comet-ping-pong

bloomberg-comet-ping-pong

ping-pong-wall

What is going on between the media and those who are taking down publicly available material is insidious. This needs to be clearly explained so there is no mistaking what is happening.

  • There is a systematic effort to cast anyone who is upset about this as a weirdo or a “conspiracy theorist.”
  • By making it impossible or near-impossible to actually find the evidence, the media shrinks the pool of people who know the truth. When that happens, righteous anger sounds like the ranting and raving of lunatics.
  • When the rest of the population cannot see the evidence, they are inclined to believe the media because to do otherwise would require confronting evil.
  • The practical effect of all this is that anyone with integrity within the media is discouraged from doing the right thing because they do not want to lose their jobs, be seen as kooks, audited by the IRS, confronted by corrupt law enforcement officials, or wind up dead.

cp-chicken-comment

You are being manipulated, and the manipulation is not being done by your fellow Americans on Reddit. It is being done by powerful people in the nation’s capital and their friends in places like The New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg News, and Fortune magazine.

The mainstream media is corrupt.

Do not take anything they tell you at face value.

“Fact Checkers” are partisan hacks and “Fake News” is a euphemism for “Opinions or Facts We In The Mainstream Media Do Not Like or Want to Cover.

If you do not realize and accept this, then you will continue to live in a world where “kid-friendly” pizza places can promote “Shut up N F*ck Men” without repercussions. That is not just unacceptable — it is evil.

Exit Question: Would you bring your child to a “Sex Stains” show? The reporters at The New York Times and The Washington Times apparently would, since this is all one big “Fake News” story.

David Seaman, online patriots put their own lives in danger to expose dark D.C. secrets while news giants cower in fear

david-seaman-youtube

There is a huge story that every single mainstream media outlet is ignoring right now. In fact, this story is so massive that it’s the kind of thing that very powerful men in the nation’s capital would kill to keep under wraps. That is why I must say that reporter David Seaman and a number of people on Reddit are American patriots for shining a spotlight on what appears to be something dark and evil going on in the nation’s capital.

Anyone who has combed through WikiLeaks over the past few months knows that Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and his brother Tony are a.) two of the most powerful men int he world — and that is not an understatement, and b.) really freaking weird — and that is an understatement.

Likewise, the Podesta brothers are also friends with powerful (and bizarre) individuals. Take, for instance, James Alefantis, GQ Magazine’s former #49 on its list of Most Powerful People in Washington. Mr. Alefantis also has the distinction of being the owner of Comet Ping Pong, a “family-friendly” joint that features ping-pong, pizza, music and entertainment.

Sounds normal, right? It might be, until you take a look at Mr. Alefantis’ Instagram account (which is now on lockdown), or the “artwork” for some of its events.

james-alefantis

You see, the guy who hosts fundraisers for D.C. power players — some attended by President Obama — has a social media account that is filled with downright freaky (that’s putting it lightly) material.

wikileaks-podesta-alefantis

Ask yourself this question: What kind of person — the former boyfriend of Correct the Record’s David Brock — posts a picture with a man holding a child and then tags it “#chickenlovers”? (i.e., pedophile slang for a homosexual man who is attracted to underage boys.)

cp-chicken-comment

That’s really creepy, right? Especially since it’s not an isolated case. It’s almost the kind of thing that an agent at the Department of Justice’s Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit — perhaps one referenced in a 2011 issue of Vanity Fair — would want to look into.

Perhaps…Andrew Kline?

vanity-fair-kline

What if Mr. Kline owned a pizza place … right next to Comet Ping Pong? One that was literally 1 minute away?

Wait…you’re saying he does? And its called Besta Pizza? Awesome!

comet-p

Wait a second. Why does Besta Pizza have a logo that is literally an exact duplicate of the “Boy Lover” symbol that law enforcement agencies say is linked to pedophiles? (It’s now apparently in the process of changing its logo.)

What’s going on here? That seems like a mainstream media outlet — perhaps one like Heat Street — should investigate.

bp-logo

Oh, wait. It looks like they already did a piece and just dismissed the whole thing as one big conspiracy theory. Haha! Silly me. I guess the dots … and dots … and dots … and dots … and dots … were all just nothing. Nope. No kids at risk here. Why look into possibly one of the biggest stories of all time when there are so many click-bait pieces to write?

heat-street-pizzagate

In all seriousness though, Mr. Seaman is acting as a guardian angel who is doing his best despite having clipped wings. I do not know what will come of this story, but I know that God will be pleased with this man’s tireless work to protect innocent souls.

Here is a summary that someone on Reddit organized to near-perfection for anyone who is interested in going down this rabbit hole. I warn you now — it is downright terrifying.

Brian Michael Bendis’ obsession with racial politics returns with ‘Invincible Iron Man’ relaunch

Imagine that you grew up reading Iron Man comics books. You love anything with Tony Stark, but for some reason Marvel’s Brian Michael Bendis was given the green light to make him disappear like a terrorist taken to a CIA black site. You’re annoyed, but at the same time you want to be open-minded about the creative possibilities of an “A.I. Tony Stark” mentor to some young kid named Riri Williams. You open the book, and just like multiple other stories by Mr. Bendis, you’re served up a giant helping of racial politics.

Question: Would you continue to read the book?

If you want a better idea of why so many readers want nothing to do with Marvel these days, then check out my latest Youtube review of Invincible Iron Man. If the format resonates with you, then make sure subscribe for future installments on your activist-writers within the comic book industry.

Invincible Iron Man #1: Civil War II delays mar Riri Williams debut

stark-hologram

Months ago it was announced that Marvel would essentially be race and gender-bending Iron Man by handing the book over to a teenage genius named Riri Williams. Fans were not given much to work with in terms of the new character’s background, other than Brian Michael Bendis’ claim that she was “probably” smarter than the billionaire philanthropist (who would go missing before Invincible Iron Man relaunched).

IIM is now on the market, but technically Tony Stark is still around due to delays with Civil War II. That means that many customers who purchased Riri’s debut issue reached the last page and had the same reaction I did: “What the heck happened to Tony Stark?! We weren’t told in IIM 14 and we weren’t told in Infamous Iron Man #1. Thanks a lot, Bendis.”

Here is what you need to know for IIM #1:

  • A flashback sequence includes a Steve Harvey lookalike telling Riri Williams’ family that she is a “super genius.” She was five years old at the time of the diagnosis.
  • Riri’s stepfather and best friend were killed in a drive-by shooting in Chicago two years ago. Riri would have likely died had her stepdad not pushed her to the ground.
  • Teenage Riri, now in her Ironheart armor, flies to Cheyenne, Wyoming, to take on the mutant Animax and her genetically created monsters. The A.I. in the Riri’s suit is horrible, but eventually Animax is defeated.
  • Cops (seemingly raaaaaaacist because they come from Wyoming and are not as enlightened as Brian Michael Bendis and his pals in New York City…), see the color of Riri’s skin and then shoot her armored hemet between the eyes without warning. After shooting her they say, “On the ground now!” and “Dude! Weapons down!” (Note: Check out the “Hands up, don’t shoot!” pose on Riri before a bullet pings off her helmet. Subtlety is not Marvel’s strong suit these days.)
  • Riri crushes the officers’ handguns and takes off.
  • A mysterious package arrives at Riri’s house. She pushes the button as her mother watches next to her. The “essence” of Tony Stark, an A.I. version of the genius billionaire, says it’s time to “get to work.”

Here’s the deal: Technically, there is nothing wrong with Invincible Iron Man. It’s a decent first issue for a character, but the problem for Iron Man fans is that decent isn’t good enough when a writer is trying to replace Tony Stark.

Making matters worse for Mr. Bendis is the fact that Iron Man fans are being asked to fork over cash for his replacement (temporary, it seems safe to assume, as long as Robert Downey Jr. is starring in Marvel Studios films), without knowing what happens to him by the end of Civil War II.

animax

Right now Mr. Bendis is using A.I. Tony Stark like Dan Slott used “ghost Peter” during Superior Spider-Man, hoping fans will be placated enough by a talking shadow to keep the book on their comic shop pull list. That’s a tall order, and it’s made even more difficult by the politically correct predictions already being thrown about by industry reviewers.

Inverse reported Nov. 11:

Despite their similarities — their genius-level intellects, engineering abilities, and desire to help people — Riri’s background is going to define her in a way that is completely different from Tony. She’s a young black woman who’s known careless violence and who built her own flying suit as a teenager — she’s miles ahead of Tony both socially and intellectually.

On top of everything, Riri is going to have to deal with Tony’s attitude and privileged background. For once, Tony will have to take a backseat, and watching their relationship unfold throughout the course of the series will be half the fun.

Got that, Tony Stark fans? The prediction, which seems to be a safe bet, is that Brian Michael Bendis will spend the next year flogging you over the head with weird messages about “white privilege.”

This issue it was those darn racist cops from Wyoming, but next issue perhaps it will be A.I. Tony Stark letting you know that he is “socially and intellectually” behind the power curve.

My suggestion, at least for now, is to hold off on buying Invincible Iron Man until a.) Civil War II concludes, and b.) Bendis proves to readers that he is going to keep racial politics to an absolute minimum.
