Politics and the English Language

Th New York Times is genuinely weird on style. Take this excellent article on the struggle between feminists and Bernie Sanders supporters. It appears that too many young women are supporting Senator Sanders. As one wag commented about Nazi Germany fighting the Soviet union in World War II, it’s a shame they can’t both lose. First, though, an excerpt highlighting feminist hypocrisy:

Ms. Steinem, 81, one of the most famous spokeswomen of the feminist movement, took the sentiment a step further on Friday in an interview with the talk show host Bill Maher. Explaining that women tend to become more active in politics as they become older, she suggested that younger women were backing Mr. Sanders just so they could meet young men.

“When you’re young, you’re thinking: ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,’ ” Ms. Steinem said.

Realizing that this was potentially offensive, Mr. Maher recoiled. “Oh. Now if I said that, ‘They’re for Bernie because that’s where the boys are,’ you’d swat me.”

But Ms. Steinem laughed it off, replying, “How well do you know me?”

Of course, the real hypocrisy isn’t feminist double-speak, but in the use of titles of address. Here are some other people quoted in the article.

“Marion Just, a political science professor at Wellesley College… Ms. Just…”

“That feeling was evident at a rally for Mrs. Clinton in Iowa in late January when Jaimee and Matthew Warbasse took their 7-month-old daughter to see the candidate… Ms. Warbasse…”

The second woman might be inflicting abuse on her child, but is clearly Mrs. Warbasse. The first is best properly referred to as Dr. Just, unless the NY Times is now ignoring women’s achievements.

And the subject of the story? “Ms. Just said that she respected women who looked beyond gender when choosing whom to support, but that she was surprised there had not been more excitement about Mrs. Clinton among younger women.”

Don’t mess with Russians

Go, Russians!

A large group of Muslim “refugees” who had previously been kicked out of Norway, thought it would be a good idea to come to a Russian night club, and molest and try to rape a bunch of women.

But unlike the politically-correct Germans in Cologne, the Muslim men found out that Russians are not as “tolerant” of their Islamic “diversity”, unleashing a savage beating that put nearly 20 mostly Arab men in a hospital.

Their first priority is love of God and worship. But then again… if a game schedule interferes with the worship schedule, move worship. Because, you know, God comes first except when there’s a game on…

 

Supplicating to rebellion

Time to jettison any notions of complementarianism, in favour of Biblical patriarchy.

Dalrock

Solomon challenged my definition of the word complementarian in the last post:

Dalrock, you said “This is the very definition of complementarianism.”

I think maybe you meant this is the definition of today’s upside-down, backwards, unholy complementarianism currently touted.

Normal complementarianism is God’s actual order. Man is authoity, woman complements/helps

This isn’t true.  Complementarianism is a term coined a little over twenty five years ago by Christians who wanted to preserve what they saw as feminist progress while avoiding what they saw as feminist excess. John Piper and Wayne Grudem explained this back in 1991 in the preface to their seminal book Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: A Response to Evangelical Feminism.  Piper and Grudem explain that their purpose is to push back against the evangelical feminists arguing that there should be no difference between the roles of men and women.  However, they are largely sympathetic to the feminist…

Michael Caine tells black actors to ‘be patient’ and wait for Oscar nominations

Exactly!

Sir Michael Caine said black actors should not be nominated just to add diversity as he weighed in on the Oscars race row.

[…]

He said: “There’s loads of black actors. In the end you can’t vote for an actor because he’s black. You can’t say ‘I’m going to vote for him, he’s not very good, but he’s black, I’ll vote for him’.”

[…]

He continued: “You have to give a good performance and I’m sure people have. I saw Idris Elba (in Beasts Of No Nation)… I thought he was wonderful.”

Or, make a movie about a gay black transsexual disabled Muslim slave woman, and it’ll be a shoe-in! ;)
