Van Badham lambastes the "testosterone left"

You gotta hand it to Vanessa "Van" Badham. She certainly doesn't do things by halves! Check out her latest rant in The Guardian. In it she desperately tries to portray Hillary Clinton as a champion for chickdom and throws shade on the "testosterone left".

Eh? Given how nagged and cowed males are on her side of politics, I'm surprised they even have any testosterone left ...

In any case, isn't reducing gender to hormones verboten these days (in the same way that accusing Islam of misogyny is, er, haram)? I mean, isn't the PC line that everyone is, like, gender fluid, and you can choose and discard your sexual identity kinda like a hairstyle? Clearly Ms Badham, along with her fellow "feisty feminist" Clementine Ford, who is currently exhorting every chick in Oz to "fight like a girl" -- itself now deemed a problematic phrase -- didn't get the memo.

That said, I suppose those so-called standards are never truly meant to be applied equally, across the board. That's "patriarchal elitism" innit? Accusations of misogyny, homophobia, racism, etc are only used to bash those on the conservative side of politics. If you're one of the socialist anointed you get a big fat free pass.

But this pro-Hillary puff piece is notable because Van is having a go at a segment of her own side, in a way ... Clearly her twin obsessions are her gender, and her lunar left politics. And the possibility that an eeevil white male capitalist might actually become the USA's Big Enchilada is stressing her out big time. And when it comes to what she deems the bigger threat it's gender that, er, trumps ideology. So she's dissing the bolshie blokes big time.

So silly ... Those "Bernie bros" (along with their "Sanders sisters") are actually far more authentically progressive than Hillary ever was or could ever be. Trying to make HRC seem like some kinda feminist hero is like trying to polish the world's biggest turd with a thimble full o' spit!

Even an exemplary lefty sleb like Susan Sarandon hates Hillary's guts. She's now endorsing Jill Stein. Then there's iconic blue collar comedian Roseanne Barr, who's loathing of Bill Clinton's wife goes back many years. She's now riding atop the Trump train, telling anyone who'll listen.

Why doesn't Ms Badham have a go at them? Her rant makes absolutely no sense at all ... Not that any of them do, BTW. But this is surely one of her dippiest so far.

Democrat diehards think society itself is rigged. So they forgive Hillary anything

As the American election approaches apace I, like many other Aussies, am watching it with my jaw on the floor. It's just astonishing how obviously corrupt Hillary is -- not to mention her whole bloody party! Without a doubt she's used her political power in the most outrageously selfish and unethical ways, and consistently gotten away with it. But the more lurid, dodgy developments there are the deeper into denial and obfuscation she and her spin merchants go. Dutifully, the MSM keeps trying to cover for her, keeping the focus on Trump (although that does seem to be changing a bit now).

Then there are the polls. Most mainstream pundits are still saying she continues to lead in them. Well, I don't know how reliable they are. And there are so many to choose from. It's a bit like climate science. There's a lot of cherry picking going on. Also, many of the samples have a preponderance of Democrat voters to start with.

Still, given these factors, it's amazing that the contest between Clinton and Trump continues to be so close. You'd think that huge swathes of the Democrat base would have just thrown their hands up in the air and gone, "FFS! This woman is evil. Her party is not what it used to be. I just can't vote for them any more."

But nup. Heaps of them are still gonna vote Democrat -- knowing full well what a buncha dirty dogs control it. You can only conclude that these people just don't give a shit about how utterly corrupt and cynical this ghastly woman is, and how craven her underlings actually are.

And I think this says a lot about the power of indoctrination. Clearly, millions of US citizens really do see society as being rigged against them. So they want to see it rigged somehow in their favour a bit. That's what Hillary says she'll do (although of course she doesn't follow through on that -- just says this to get their vote). The reason they see their nation this way, and believe that only the Democrats can help them, is because they've been taught this from an early age.

It's this victim mindset that is so toxic. In extreme form, it's often a big part of criminals' motivations ... One of the main reasons career crims can be so shameless about what they do is because on a really deep level they think that crime pervades all of society anyway. They think that simply by going to work they're being stolen from. They see cops as thugs and the law as a way of keeping this big ugly scam going. As a result they believe that breaking the law is no biggie. So why not go for it?

So much of what the Left teaches people is a milder form of this criminal mindset. Those who believe it are usually not thugs or thieves themselves, of course. But they see themselves as victims of a rigged system. That's why there's so much derision about Trump claiming that the political establishment and the MSM are rigging the election against him.

Trump is far from perfect of course. But in a political sense he's a clean skin. Nothing he's done so far in this realm (or even in business, I suspect) is anywhere near as dodgy as what Hillary, her vile hubby and their elitist cronies have been up to for yonks. So when the law gives her a pass, and the MSM colludes with her party in a brazen attempt to get her over the line this is rigging the election, no doubt about it.

But those rusted on Democrat voters just scoff at this. "Yeah sure, Donald," they snort. "You've had it easy. Everything's rigged, anyway. So I'll go with the one on my side, not yours."

As Trump himself would say: Sad!
