Saturday Sanity Check
Hot Tip: You're normal. It's the world that's gone cray cray!
ORGANISERS of The Women’s March - a worldwide protest for women’s rights - have updated their logo to include a male head, overlayed above the two women.
Or maybe it’s Joe Biden coming in for a sniff, I don’t know.
What I do know is that feminists are deconstructing themselves right out of existence with this stupid, performative self-harm.
The Women’s March was first held in 2017 when almost half a million women protested the election of President Donald Trump. Since then it has grown into an international movement.
But whatever Orange Man Bad may have said or done to offend women, he never tried to completely erase them like leftists are now doing.
When women are increasingly referring to themselves as “birthing people” and as “menstruators” and as “chest feeders” and as “front holes” … they are marching backwards!
Denying the existence of women is misogyny. The Women’s March organisers are misogynists. What a time to be alive!
Women’s March organisers debuted the new logo with a tweet that read:
Journalist Sonia Poulton replied succinctly:
“We are the Women’s March. Our priority is men. That’s the tweet.”
I was going to tweet:
“Chicks with dicks aren’t really chicks. That’s the tweet.”
But I didn’t want to get in trouble for using the word chicks.
Anyway, Women’s March organisers have made their entire movement redundant.
Why even have a Women's March if there are no set defining characteristics for what makes someone a woman?
If the term “woman” is so vague that anyone is or can be a woman, then women’s right’s don’t even make sense.
What becomes of a Women’s March when the women start marching for the right of men to become women?
Bottom line: Women are soooo yesterday. Unless they are men.
THIS week we learned that Joe Biden has Covid and Donald Trump’s still got it - the ability to left fly with zingers, that is.
Trump’s statement on President Biden’s Covid status is a work of art.
Like him or loath him, the Donald is highly entertaining.
THE fear porn keeps coming.
First there was Covid. Then there was Omicron followed by the Monkeypox, and now the media are warning us of the Marburg virus.
The ABC ran a story this week headlined …
“Marburg virus. What are the symptoms and how is it treated?”
Channel Nine was in on the drama …
“What is Marburg virus: Symptoms and everything else you need to know about the highly infectious disease.”
And over at the BBC they were fretting …
“What is the Marburg virus and how can it be avoided?”
When you read the BBC article you discover Marburg virus is sort of like Ebola. It’s not new. It’s been around since at least the 1960s - almost exclusively in Africa. The disease has claimed one life in Europe in the past 40 years.
But recently, two people have been diagnosed in Ghana.
That’s enough for the BBC to go full Fauci.
Should we mask up? Get jabbed? Avoid gay fetish gatherings in Belgium?
The BBC reported …
“Among humans, it is spread mostly by people who have spent long periods in caves populated by bats.”
Right. So we’re banning travel in and out of Gotham City.
WHILE on the subject of diseases, New York Times science writer Benjamin Ryan made possibly the greatest typo in Twitter history during the week
When mortified readers pointed out the hilarious typo, he replied:
What a good sport!
He later apologised for causing the Monkeypox outbreak
THE left share your vocabulary but not your dictionary.
Take the phrase “gender affirming care”. It’s difficult to think of a more Orwelian term. The term literally means the extreme opposite of the words composing it.
Gender-affirming would be reassuring each boy that he is a boy and each girl that she is a girl.
But the left use the term as a euphemism for …
Conditioning minors to believe they’re members of the opposite sex
Blocking minors from entering puberty & developing normal sexual function
The sterilisation and amputation of minors
You have to wonder if eventually this becomes a backdoor to the normalization of pedophilia, er, I mean ‘minor attracted persons’.
How long before someone says with a straight face …
"If your child is old enough to affirm their gender and sexuality then surely they're old enough to consent..."
EARLIER in the week I wrote an article about Russian officials mocking America’s grand flirtation with transgenderism.
On Tuesday a smirking Vladimir Putin, talking about the energy crisis in Europe, had this to say …
“What is happening with energy supplies?
“I don’t know if it’s worth going into details about the energy policy of European countries who neglected the importance of traditional energy sources and took a bet on non-traditional ones.
“They are great experts in non traditional relations, so in the field of energy they also decided to rely on non-traditional sources such as solar and wind. But the winter turned out long and not windy.”
I’m no fan of Mr Putin. But well played.
CONTINUING the theme ….
It’s January 1, 2030. The skies are overcast and there is no wind.
The 82% renewables that are supposed to be “powering Australia” are doing bugger all.
So are we. There’s not enough power to do anything.
Thank God for the government issued candles though.
Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe someone in the ALP will invent a really, really, really, really, REALLY big battery in the next few years.
Short of that, we are headed for disaster.
Prime Minister Antony Albanese this week promised to open Parliament by passing the Government’s Climate Change Bill that mandates a 43% carbon emissions reduction by 2030.
Ironically, we are doing this at the very time Europeans are waking up to the vulnerable position reliance on weather-dependent energy has put them in.
You can’t make this stuff up.
ON the subject of climate change, could the media possibly hype up the UK heat wave any more?
With London temperatures reaching 40 degrees celsius, Sky News reported that …
“UK’s hottest-ever day leaves charred remains of homes and cars.”
Whoa! Did they spontaneously combust?
It must have been a massive heatwave in 1666!
Sky News continued …
Britain was scorched by its hottest-ever day on Tuesday and the country had a glimpse of what could be the new reality in the summer months.
Watching Sky News and reading Greenpeace, you could be forgiven for thinking 40 degree days just cause things to burst into flame. Maybe that’s what happened to the Cathedral of Notre Dame.
Anyway, here’s Greenpeace getting all hot and bothered …
As an aside, if we “stop using fossil fuels now” as Greenpeace insist, what do we do for energy?
The Yorkshire South Fire Department, who likely know a bit more about the fires than Greenpeace ideologues, warned that people should stop having garden bonfires on 40 degree days.
“Daft thing to do in the conditions,” they tweeted.
Nah, it’s the climate change.
GAS prices are at an all time high in the US right now. At the time of writing, regular fuel was $7.79 a gallon.
You want to know how bad that is?
Fuel was more affordable in Will Smith’s apocalyptic thriller I Am Legend!
So there’s your Saturday sanity check.
Thanks for reading.
Have a great weekend everybody.
I’m not sure if this article gave me less or more (in)sanity!?!
All I know is that your prolific use of the word “chicks” was offensive.
As for “me” (love the tweet gone wrong by the way) I’m personally appealing to the Wom-mens March to change their logo immediately to include two women and one Golden Retriever, since I am now identifying as a dog.
If they don’t, I am not coming to the march with my leash as promised. Woof. Or is it Grrrr? Anyway…
Thanks James for an entertaining week.
I insist you entertain yourself by looking back on my Tongue Twister comment, dedicated to your Russian article. It’s tres bien.
Great wrap thanks James. Makes my day!
Sky News UK are surprisingly woke aren’t they? Jumped right on to the climate change bandwagon.
And if Greenpeace had their way, all fossil fuel powered fire trucks should immediately stop attending fires!
