lena-dunham-white-men

Lena Dunham is a woman with a multitude of psychological problems, which why I very rarely write on her antics. However, since she is a manufactured celebrity who is enlisted to make weird pro-Hillary Clinton rap videos, there are times when it is necessary. Her “extinction of white men” video published Wednesday is one such example.

Here is what she and her father said in an animated short regarding their desire for genocide:

Lena Dunham: How are you feeling about the extinction of white men?

Carroll Dunham: Well, white men are a problem. Straight white men are a big problem, that’s for sure. But I actually feel pretty good about it. I think straight white guys have been screwing things up for long enough. [It’s] high-time for straight white males to step back and let some other people do it.

Lena Dunham: That’s my dad!

Lena and Carroll: Hahaha!

As has already been stated, these are troubled souls. Instead of admitting to their own sense of self-loathing and insecurity, they project it into the world through poisonous political activism.

Don’t believe me? Consider the case of Esquire magazine’s Charles Pierce, who appeared on MSNBC in July and said he was optimistic “this is the last time that old white people will command the Republican party’s attention, its platform, its public face.” 

There is a palpable hatred of white people by pundits, politicians, and activists who wield real power and influence. They openly yearn for the “extinction” and cultural castration of straight white men (like your friendly neighborhood blogger), but a defense of white men or Western civilization is immediately shouted down as evidence of racism.

Again, we return to Mr. Pierce’s comment and the response by Iowa Rep. Steve King.

This ‘old white people’ business does get a little tired, Charlie,” the lawmaker said. “I’d ask you to go back through history and figure out: Where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you’re talking about? Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?”

Host Chris Hayes then said, “Than white people?”

“Than Western civilization itself. It’s rooted in Western Europe, Eastern Europe and the United States of America and every place where the footprint of Christianity settled the world. That’s all of Western civilization,” Mr. King responded.

Mr. King was excoriated in by multiple media outlets for the comments as “racist,” despite the fact that he was pushing back against Mr. Pierce’s bizarre racial animus (and, like Ms. Dunham, self-loathing), towards white people.

See how it works? Cultural influencers say all white people are responsible for the world’s ills, and when you stand up for yourself then your defiance is decried as proof of bigotry.

What makes the tactics used by Ms. Dunham and her friends so insidious is that it doubles as bait to draw out actual racists and uneducated people. The ignorant come across as racist because they do not know how to properly navigate intellectual minefields.

Who are these non-white people who Carroll Dunham wants running the show?

Could it be the not-so-white guys who throw gay people off tall buildings in Syria?

Islamic State gay execution

Could it be the not-so-white guys who take female sex slaves in Nigeria?

Boko Haram

Could it be the not-so-white people in China who put smiley faces on forced abortions (particularly when it involves little girls)?

China Population Control

Lena Dunham on many levels is an embarrassing joke, but her ideology is very serious. She is but a small cog in an organized machine, which is programed to destroy the pillars of Western civilization and replace them with an authoritarian perversion that “feels good” about genocide.

You can laugh at Ms. Dunham. You can cry for Ms. Dunham. You can pray for her soul, but you would be remiss to dismiss her activism as inconsequential to the the long-term health of our civil society.

  1. This is an awesome post, well done. You’ve said the things I am often thinking.

    This has been a tough couple of years on the racial front. Those of us who care about actual racism, have been thwarted by broken people like Dunham and black lives matter, who are invested in sowing destruction and division. Ironically, these are women, feminists.

    1. “This is an awesome post, well done. You’ve said the things I am often thinking.”

      Thanks. You’re not alone, insanitybytes22! 🙂

      “This has been a tough couple of years on the racial front. Those of us who care about actual racism, have been thwarted by broken people like Dunham and black lives matter, who are invested in sowing destruction and division. Ironically, these are women, feminists.”

      Yep. They are essentially engaging in a kind of scorched-earth strategy, and it’s really hard to counter. People wonder why the confrontational approaches by “Milo” and “Trump” have been embraced by so many Americans, and it’s in many ways traced back to activists like Lena Dunham. When you demonize good people over…and over…and over again, then many of them will mutate into the demons you feared.

      There are times where I must consciously step back when I’m unjustly accused of [insert defamatory quality here] and not let the anger take hold. I’m a pretty smart guy and you’re a pretty smart woman, but what happens to people who were not blessed with patience or intelligence? Answer: They turn to figures who are not afraid to fight — dirty — with brass knuckles.

    2. Doug, that’s why I think an election isn’t enough. Reform has to be radical. We need to accept that the RNC is a failed concept, let it go by way of the Wig’s and find something with teeth to defend our constitution and our way of life.

      (**Note to liberal trolls, this is NOT a call to VIOLENCE. It IS a call to ACTION.**)

    3. “Doug, that’s why I think an election isn’t enough. Reform has to be radical.”

      I agree with you, my friend! 🙂 Let me reiterate what I said back in February:

      “Phorid flies, also known as ‘ant-decapitating flies,’ are nasty little creatures. They lay their eggs inside the thorax of an ant. Then larvae crawl up into the host’s brain and eat it. The ant, unaware of the assassins within, ends life with its head literally falling off.

      Tuesday’s election results in New Hampshire demonstrate what this blog has been trying to say for over five years: Cultural phorid flies are eating away at America’s brain, and it may be too late to excise the parasite. …

      The results in New Hampshire are exactly what happens when moral relativism, political corruption, and crony capitalism eat away at society’s innards for a long enough time. America, once a proud worker ant, now has something weird and different growing inside it. Unless the parasite is removed — now — it will burst forth from the nation’s corpse and usher in a wholly new reality, likely something from our Founding Fathers’ worst nightmares.”

      The real problem isn’t with the Republican Party — the real problem is with our culture. Unless that is fixed, I think it’s game over.

      I hate to be pessimistic, but I think we are in a very bad place right now. I don’t want to sugar coat it.

      “We need to accept that the RNC is a failed concept, let it go by way of the Wig’s and find something with teeth to defend our constitution and our way of life.”

      I think you’re wrong. I think the principles of the Republican Party are just fine. Again, it’s the whole “politics is downstream from culture” deal. If the culture is diseased, then you’re going to get corrupt politicians, corrupt media, social unrest, crumbling institutions, etc.

      The reason why the Republican Party doesn’t have teeth is because our culture has been de-fanged. Like I said in the post, there are people who actively work for cultural castration — and in many ways they have succeeded.

      “Straight white men” are not generally not inclined to allow someone to cut their manhood off, which is why they are despised by America’s Lena Dunhams.

  2. You might have seen a few days ago…I lashed out in anger about being called a “Nazi” or a “Klansman” on my facebook. Of course, I wasn’t called that directly. But it was based in a tweet from Chris Hayes about who their voting preferences are. Basically a subtle: “You vote with those guys”. I actually don’t even fall into that category…but my wife did, and knowing someone my wife has cared for her whole life would just carelessly agree with such a thing made me furious.

    What’s truly hilarious is that they can’t even face me. I’m as white as Obama is.

    They tell me they are standing up for me, and I tell them that I’ve always stood for them.

    They’ve asked me if I’m tired of white people for what they’ve done, and I tell them most of us are tired of being angry at white people for what they’ve never done.

    It’s sad, I met some of these people (my in-laws) when they were children, but they went to college and came back like Lena. It’s so ironic, the conservatives in the family have shown more concern, love and interest for my culture and people as a Filipino than the liberals do. And most of them I used to be very close to. Now I’m an embarrassment, a sign that in their personal lives, the politics they’ve embraced make it impossible for them to deal with a flesh and blood non-fully white person that doesn’t share their point of view.

    In my own family and friends, most non-white…most of them are life long Democrats, and we still laugh, enjoy each others company and drink together. It has never, and would never occur to them that I’m a Nazi, or a Racist…but my more white associates can? wow. I’m not embarrassed to be half-white, I’m proud of who I am…all of it. Every one deserves to be.

    This is the damage these Liberals have done.

    1. I’m at a loss for words… As a fellow Filipino (I’m from the native land), I can only pray and hope for you and your loved ones’ good fortunes in these times of absurd moral embarrassment. Most of the Americans I’ve interacted with here are composed of retirees and/or expatriates with conservative leanings (some from the South, no less). Far from the bigoted, isolationist types that American popular culture wants me to think, they’re humble, courteous people who only wish to preserve their traditional Christian values and protect their land from invading terrorists. And I can’t blame them. Yet every modern American-made TV show (or at least the ones I keep running into) seem designed to throw as much jabs as possible to you if you’re white, male, and Christian. Frankly, I find it not just distracting, but downright offensive how plenty of their “jokes” would get them all under hot water if they were made at the expense of Jews, Muslims, and god forbid blacks… yet being white and Christian is fair game?! I’m obviously not white, but an attack on my faith does still somewhat grate on my nerves. Sorry for the rant, just had to get that out of my system.

    2. “Sorry for the rant, just had to get that out of my system.”

      Rant away, Tristan! We always want to hear what you have to say. 🙂

      And yes, most conservatives really just believe that the universal principles laid out in the Declaration of Independence and codified into law via the U.S. Constitution should be honored — because that’s what created the environment for greatness to flourish. We have abandoned “equal opportunity” for “equal results,” which is not what the Founders had in mind. The only way you get equal results is through the coercive — and usually tyrannical — use of force by the federal government.

    3. “You might have seen a few days ago…I lashed out in anger about being called a “Nazi” or a ‘Klansman’ on my facebook. Of course, I wasn’t called that directly. But it was based in a tweet from Chris Hayes about who their voting preferences are. Basically a subtle: ‘You vote with those guys.'”

      The “Klansman” arguments always make me laugh because it operates on the assumption that only white people are racist.

      Even if I agreed with the underlying premise, when racists vote for limited government they are also voting for more liberty and economic freedom for minorities. It’s not my fault that “classical” racists do not realize that big government is where they way to go to hurt minorities.

      And that’s why I said “classical” racistsThe new racist just needs to look at Chicago and Detroit and say, “More of what their politicians are doing” if he doesn’t like minorities.

      Mitt Romney and George W. Bush didn’t destroy Chicago — liberalism did.

    4. “We have abandoned ‘equal opportunity’ for ‘equal results,’ which is not what the Founders had in mind. The only way you get equal results is through the coercive — and usually tyrannical — use of force by the federal government.”

      I’ve always admired the Great Founders of America and for a long time (still do) think to myself that my own backwater country might… just might… finally sort itself together if we breed our own leaders of their caliber, not the “trapos” that have ruled the Philippines for God-knows-how-long.

      But the America I’m seeing today is a far cry from that idealism. It’s funny isn’t it, Mr. Ernst? The idiotic “Millennial Age” is steadily drawing your beloved nation closer and closer to the oppressive pitfalls of a communist — nay, fascist society, yet remain blissfully unaware of it as they continue wallowing in their own little world of make-believe “quest for justice.”

  3. Nonsense like this is one of the reasons I moved away from progressivism and toward the Right. I was taught not to hate other races…and now all the goodthinkers are saying it’s not only okay to hate whites, but it’s okay to wish for their extermination.

    Now not hating whites is considered the height of racism and bigotry, clear evidence that you are a moral degenerate.

    1. “Nonsense like this is one of the reasons I moved away from progressivism and toward the Right.”

      I’ve said this before, but I considered myself a “default Democrat” when I first went to college. The kind of “Dunham politics” practiced by my professors prompted me to look into conservatism.

      Had I not witnessed the open hypocrisy of the far left (especially regarding racial and religious tolerance), I was well on my way to becoming an SJW. Good thing I wised up in high school!

  4. The only thing that has been accomplished with this stuff is the further division between groups of people. I’ve heard many on my campus decry “white male privilege” and all the rest, and it is always done in an “I am oh-so-enlightened-and-superior” kind of way. It gets old very quickly. People are defined by who they are, not the color of their skin. I have no idea how one can reasonably cast any kind of judgment on someone purely based on their race. It’s insane.

    1. “I’ve heard many on my campus decry ‘white male privilege’ and all the rest, and it is always done in an “I am oh-so-enlightened-and-superior” kind of way. It gets old very quickly. People are defined by who they are, not the color of their skin.”

      Where was my “white male privilege” when I was cleaning latrines that were splattered with diarrhea from a company of U.S. soldiers who all came down with a stomach virus?

      Where was my “white male privilege” when I was working the overnight shift stocking shelves at Target and then going to class the next morning?

      Everybody has their own story and their own obstacles to overcome. Beating a man over the head because of so-called “privilege” is dumb and unproductive. That crap used to really grate on my nerves when I was in college.

    2. “Where was my “white male privilege” when I was cleaning latrines that were splattered with diarrhea from a company of U.S. soldiers who all came down with a stomach virus?”

      Exactly. I’d like to where my “white male privilege” was in middle school when I was being bullied by a Hispanic kid. It sure as hell didn’t help me get out of detention or in-school suspension, that’s for sure. The gang of kids that picked on me always got lighter punishments than I did.

  5. Mmm….such poisonous diatribe from Lena Dunham, a very offensive, unattractive, unfunny woman whom I would typically refer to in Aussie slang as a slag.

    1. “Mmm….such poisonous diatribe from Lena Dunham, a very offensive, unattractive, unfunny woman whom I would typically refer to in Aussie slang as a slag.”

      I would love to see someone call her a “slag” on video one day in response to one of her political attacks. But they need to have an Australian accent. 😉
