Projecting onto a Void 

Since Melania Trump is such a void, people are having a field day projecting crap onto her. Here are the poor freaks who think she is being abused. Since there’s nothing there, they use her as a canvas to paint their own emotions. Just like the colleague I wrote about saw in Melania her own fantasy of a woman protected by a strong man.

Good for the Goose

The US naturalization and citizenship form asks me if I ever tried to prevent anybody from practicing his or her religion. It also asks me if I have a good moral character.

It’s great for Trump that he already has citizenship or he wouldn’t pass.

Cognitive Dissonance 

President Donald Trump appeared to equate US actions with the authoritarian regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview released Saturday, saying, “There are a lot of killers. You think our country’s so innocent?”

This is exactly what progressives have been saying forever  (not only about Putin but about everybody). This is also the line that’s made conservatives fume with rage for equally as long. 

It’s truly funny that “America is a source of all evil in the world” will now be part of Republican ideology. And it will because Putin is in love with this idea. 

Feminists for Rape

As you might have noticed from the title of Federici’s book, she worships Shakespeare’s Caliban. She has read a bit too much of the idiot essayist Fernandez Retamar and has decided that Caliban symbolizes the oppressed non-white minorities fighting against colonial oppression. 

What’s really crazy, though, is that Federici, a feminist, is so eager to worship a rapist. The goal of Caliban’s attempts at liberation in the play is being able to rape Miranda. Federici avoids mentioning this unpleasant fact because everything fades away once she gets a chance to posture as an anti-racist.

There is a whole generation of feminists who are more than happy to piss on every feminist issue if they get to scratch the itch of liberal guilt in exchange.
