Lena Dunham and dad ‘feel good’ about ‘extinction of white men’: Manufactured celeb says what activists really believe

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.

Niall Ferguson’s ‘Civilization: The West and the Rest’ is a masterpiece

Civilization The West and the RestIt is hard to describe the joy of reading a book so well-crafted that words like “masterpiece” and “genius” come to mind. Reading Niall Ferguson’s “Civilization: The West and the Rest” feels like getting bowled over by an intellectual wrecking ball again and against and again — but you keep coming back for more. If you can take the punishment, then you too are handed a wrecking ball of your very own upon completion of the final page. With your newly acquired weapon you can knock down cultural relativists and anti-Western internet trolls who are too lazy to go through Mr. Ferguson’s gauntlet.

The task before Mr. Ferguson was great: he had to break down the entire history of Western Civilization and explain the key traits — the “killer apps” — its members downloaded to make them rise above the rest. He then had to explain how nations like the U.S. and the U.K. are at risk of letting it all slip away.

Ferguson’s six “apps” are:

  1.  Competition
  2. The Scientific Revolution
  3. The rule of law and representative government
  4. Modern medicine
  5. The consumer society
  6. Work ethic

A sentient drop of water in Lake Ontario would have no clue that it was going to shoot over Niagara Falls in a few days without a broader sense of perspective. Likewise, it can be difficult to see just how close Western civilization is to going over a cliff without trying to obtain a bird’s eye view.

Mr. Ferguson writes:

What is most striking about this more modern reading of history is the speed of the Roman Empire’s collapse. In just five decades, the population of Rome itself fell by three quarters. Archaeological evidence from the late fifth century —inferior housing, more primitive pottery, fewer coins, smaller cattle — shows that the benign influence of Rome diminished rapidly in the rest of Western Europe. What one historian called ‘the end of civilization’ came within the span of a single generation.

Could our own version of Western civilization collapse with equal suddenness? It is, admittedly an old fear that began haunting British intellectuals from Chesterton to Shaw more than a century ago. Today, however, the fear may be more grounded. — Niall Ferguson, Civilization: The West and the Rest (New York: Penguin, 2011), 292.

To make matters worse, those charged with providing that elevated view have done a horrible job — for decades. The author accurately observes in the preface:

For roughly thirty years, young people at Western schools and universities have been given the idea of a liberal education, without the substance of historical knowledge. They have been taught isolated ‘modules’, not narratives, much less chronologies. They have been trained in the formulaic analysis of document excerpts, not in the key skill of reading widely and fast. They have been encouraged to feel empathy with imagined Roman centurions or Holocaust victims, not to write essays about why and how their predicaments arose. …

The current world population makes up approximately 7 percent of all the human beings who have ever lived. The dead outnumber the living, in other words, fourteen to one, and we ignore the accumulated experience of such a huge majority of mankind at our peril. … [T]he past is really our only reliable source of knowledge about the fleeting present and to the multiple futures that lies before us, only one of which will actually happen. History is not just how we study the past; it is how we study time itself. (Preface, xx)

‘Civilization: The West and the Rest’ is an extremely important book. If you find yourself looking around and asking, “Where did it all go wrong? What’s happening to us?” then you should buy it today. Mr. Ferguson and the researchers who helped put together his book should be proud. It’s a masterpiece that will be studied for years to come, whether Western civilization retains its global seat of prominence or not.

Rob Schneider: Watch My New Show, Rob! PS: Western Civilization Sucks.

How do you sell a new show to Americans? If you’re Rob Schneider, you go on the radio and admit that the inspiration for “Rob!” never wanted to come here. And then you bash Western Civilization.

Rob Schneider has been trying to resurrect his career for awhile now. In the past he thought taking jabs at Dennis Miller’s conservatism would win him some brownie points with liberal critics. Perhaps it worked, because he was given a shot at his own show, the eponymous “Rob!” While I personally think it’s quite a gamble (to put it nicely) to create a show based on the strength of Rob Schneider’s shoulders, God bless the producer who did.

Rob’s newest strategy for winning over American audiences is to fully disclose that the inspiration for the show, his wife, never really wanted to come here. As a cherry on top, he proffers that Western Civilization was inferior to the Mayans and Aztecs, except in their ability to spread disease. Washington, DC’s Elliot from Elliot In The Morning never threw him a life line, but then why would he? A guest’s stupidity often makes for great radio.

Elliot: I know that in reading about the show they talk about how it’s loosely based on your real life. I don’t believe you ran off and eloped to Vegas, but what’s with your wife’s family—

Rob Schneider: My wife is from Mexico. She came over here on a tourist visa. I was madly in love with her. She didn’t want to get married, to be honest. It’s different than in the show. My wife never saw herself getting married. She loves Mexico more than America. That’s her country. She worked there. She’s given up her culture, her language, her family, her friends, the food. She wasn’t like the people who want to come to America. She never saw that, but she fell in love with me. I talked her into getting married. And we did. We just went off to the courthouse. Some idiot took a picture of me and her on their cellphone, and the next thing you know it’s on the tabloids…

Elliot: One of the clips that I’ve seen, you’re in grandma’s room and you’re straightening the portrait and it falls and there’s all prayer candles underneath. Is that her family?

Rob Schneider: She’s Catholic. They’re very religious. They don’t just believe in Jesus. They also believe in Jesus’ mom. They have the whole Catholic thing going. It’s lovely. There’s a thing about the Mayan and Aztecs, who were just ahead—the most advanced civilization in 1492 was not the Europeans. The Europeans were only advanced in filth and disease. That was their biggest advance… I’m getting way too into this, aren’t I?

Could it be that one of the reasons why Rob’s wife didn’t see why millions of immigrants flock to America every year is because her mind is filled anti-colonialist clap trap?  Why would anyone want to move to America if someone put their brain through the multicultural rinse cycle? Rob probably has some very astute observations about inter-racial marriages, but like his acting career he’s prone to stumbling and bumbling through the delivery. Perhaps at another time I’ll discuss my own inter-racial relationship (and now marriage) just to say I’ve waded through that mine field, but right now it might be best to discuss the so-called superiority of the Aztecs. If Rob wants to play that game, let’s do so.

I’ll refrain from discussing inter-tribal rape, head lice, and infanticide. Instead, I’ll let Dinesh’ D’souza dismantle Rob’s inane argument:

When Cortes captured the Aztec emperor Montezuma and his attendants, he would only permit them temporary release on the promise that they stop their traditional practices of cannibalism and human sacrifice, but he found that “as soon as we turned our heads they would resume their old cruelties.” Aztec cannibalism, writes anthropologist Marvin Harris, “was not a perfunctory tasting of ceremonial tidbits.” Indeed the Aztecs on a regular basis consumed human flesh in a stew with peppers and tomatoes, and children were regarded as a particular delicacy. Cannibalism was prevalent among the Aztecs, Guarani, Iroquois, Caribs, and several other tribes.

Moreover, the Aztecs of Mexico and the Incas of South America performed elaborate rites of human sacrifice, in which thousands of captive Indians were ritually murdered, until their altars were drenched in blood, bones were strewn everywhere, and priests collapsed with exhaustion from stabbing their victims. The law of the Incas provided for punishment of parents and others who displayed grief during human sacrifices. When men of noble birth died, wives and concubines were often strangled and buried with them.

Multicultural textbooks, committed to a contemporary version of the noble savage portrait, cannot acknowledge historical facts that would embarrass the morality tale of white invaders despoiling the elysian harmony of the Americans.

Would you like me to drop another bomb on you, Rob? I probably shouldn’t, since I have the feeling that your show is a big piece of unexploded ordinance sitting on the CBS lot. I wish it wasn’t, but everything in my gut says that the CBS producers sought to fill the void left behind by really bad television shows watched by George Lopez fans.

Oh, and before you accuse me of being the angry, racist white guy stewing in his basement over minority television shows, I have have one thing to say: Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Classic. What kid in the 90’s didn‘t love it? And if that doesn’t convince you, “Yo, Holmes, forget it, I’m off to Bel Air.”
