SJW journalism in action

The Other McCain observes how Democratic activists with bylines showcase the Three Laws of Social Justice:
It’s not a “crackpot conspiracy theory” to believe Crist is a closet case, and that his marriages were merely camouflage. This kind of gossip has long been widespread in Florida political circles. But this wasn’t why Tea Party conservatives hated Crist in 2009, when the then-Republican governor of Florida dishonestly secured the endorsement of both the state party chairman and the National Republican Senatorial Committee 15 months ahead of the 2010 GOP Senate primary. With Tea Party backing, Marco Rubio surged ahead to beat Crist, who eventually became a Democrat. (And the exposure of corruption of the state GOP apparatus sent some people to prison.) When Joy Reid started gay-baiting Crist in 2007, however, Crist was seen as a “rising star” in the GOP, and smearing him as a closet homosexual was obviously an attempt by Reid — then as now a partisan Democrat — to sabotage the career of a Republican.

The issue is not whether Joy Reid is a “homophobe” any more than the issue is whether Crist is gay. Indeed, I have argued that much of what is condemned as “homophobia” is neither wrong nor harmful. The real issue is that Reid is dishonest — a Democrat Party hack, masquerading as a journalist — and that she is an unscrupulous hypocrite, willing to do whatever she can to hurt Republicans, even if it means acting in direct contradiction to her own party’s alleged “principles.”

(In fact, Democrats have no principle other than the pursuit of power.) Furthermore, Reid’s behavior illustrates Vox Day’s Three Laws of SJWs:
  1. SJWs always lie.
  2. SJWs always double down.
  3. SJWs always project.
For more detail, well, you know where to find them.

Leftists don't have morals, they just have whatever is politically advantageous for them. Leftism, in brief, is nihilism applied to politics.

"Leftism, in brief, is nihilism applied to politics."

Not exactly. If it were nihilism, they wouldn't do anything.

It's solipsism/hedonism disguised as nihilism, since the nihilism is required for them to get to the point where "if it feels good do it" can't be argued against.

Should have also sent one to baseball analyst Greg Zaun, but it's now too late. He stupidly released an apology letter yesterday.

My apologies for an OT, VD...but, I was trying to find out just who pays for a "Special Prosecutor's" salary. Especially Mueller & Starr.

Anyone help?

Again, I'm apologetic. (it's kinda your own fault, you have too many smart folks commenting here)

I find it fascinating how a lot of people reject most of Vox's ideas but accept the three laws of SJWs due to their usefulness and obvious predictive power (off the top of my head we have this instance, RS McCain, and Diversity & Comics).

They see that there's truth in what Vox has written, but they still can't accept the rest because it doesn't feel good to think those unpleasant things. It's a shame.

Hopefully when things get bad, the resistance to wrongthink will lessen and people like this will be able to accept that Vox/the alt-right is right on many other issues too. You can see the three laws as this little pathway that will hopefully lead people out of conservatism and into the alt-right.

Whatever department of government appoints the special counsel should have to pay for it. In the current case, that would be the DoJ. But ultimately of course, the bill goes back to the taxpayers.

@5

A Special Counsel (SC) is appointed by DOJ's Attorney General (AG). If there is no AG, the Deputy Attorney General (DAG) acts as AG. DOJ appoints, DOJ pays. Muller is an employee for a term of DOJ.

@5 Ken Starr was an 'Independent Counsel' under the independent counsel statute which is now defunct. The independent counsel acted like a little mini-DOJ outside of the DOJ, and had its own semi-unlimited appropriation from the statute.

Somewhat off topic, but it's now being widely reported that the story about Mueller supposedly issuing a subpoena to Deutsche Bank for Trump's account records is FAKE.

It seems likely Congress could also order a special counsel investigation and appoint such counsel, in which case they would bear the cost. I'm not aware of their ever having done so though.

My question is if Muller is projecting... For the FBI ain't pure in this, or doubling down, or both?

My money would be on both.

They are contrarians, evil ones at that. Even if they got everything they currently want, and had an iron-fist level of rule over us, they would make up new outrages. They would constantly change the laws, and what they expect from everyone to maximize misery for that is their coin.

For an example of this contrariness look no further than the current Republican Tax Bill. It forces the rich in leftist states to actually pay their fair share by no longer allowing the deduction of state taxes from fed taxes. The left should be happy, because the rich paying their fair share has been the mantra of the left as long as I have been aware of them. Everybody else gets either a tax cut or no change, so why is the left pissed off? Because contrarian.

James Dixon @20: "It seems likely Congress could also order a special counsel investigation and appoint such counsel, in which case they would bear the cost. I'm not aware of their ever having done so though."

According to this report by the Congressional Research Service:

"Under the Constitution and its separation of powers principles and structure, Congress has no
direct role in federal law enforcement, nor in triggering or initiating the appointment of any
prosecutor for any particular matter (other than the advice and consent role of the Senate
regarding certain nominations made by the President). Congress, however, has recognized
inherent authority to conduct oversight hearings and legislative investigations by its committees
into misconduct, mismanagement, or any other malfeasance relating to the officers and agencies
of the executive branch of government...
"

However, prosecution of any wrongdoing would still have to be done by a special prosecutor appointed via the Executive.

Anonymous WaterBoy December 05, 2017 5:43 PM  

More @23: Code of Federal Regulations stipulates:

"§600.1 Grounds for appointing a Special Counsel.

The Attorney General, or in cases in which the Attorney General is recused, the Acting Attorney General, will appoint a Special Counsel when he or she determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted and—

(a) That investigation or prosecution of that person or matter by a United States Attorney's Office or litigating Division of the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other extraordinary circumstances; and

(b) That under the circumstances, it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside Special Counsel to assume responsibility for the matter.
"

No Special Counsel for Congress.

Yes, save for a possible contempt of Congress charge, any appointment by Congress would be strictly investigatory.

> No Special Counsel for Congress.

It's highly unlikely it would be called the same thing, but are you going to tell Congress they can't appoint someone to perform an investigation? Is anyone?

Anonymous Clay December 05, 2017 10:35 PM  

OK. I didn't mean to get too technical.

I suppose Mueller is getting a check for his work as "Special Prosecutor"

Who or what is writing him that check? All the checks I ever got came from SOMEONE. Usually, the check was quite obvious, identifying the sender. Had a signature on it, too.

I guess that's what I was really trying to ask.

The harrowing thing about the SJWs is their ability to coalesce and hang together around group lies. For example, in the 1990s it was very common to have them coming out and eviscerating Newt Gingrich for his extramarital affairs while simultaneously defending Bill Clinton for his. They shamelessly never drop a beat.

Their lies pollute the political lexicon. For one example, we have the term "Sister Soulja Moment", that the media and chattering class are looking for every four years -- from the GOP candidate. This is named after a time when Bill Clinton reprimanded a rapper, Sister Soulja, for her extremist views during the 1992 campaign and compared her to David Duke. It's taken to be a good and healthy thing now, always expected of Republicans to get up there and call out and put down their own on the right. Except, when Bill Clinton did this it was all a sham. Everybody on the left knew he was only speaking to get elected and was in fact quite okay with Soulja-style radical black activism. In fact it didn't take long before they all were calling him the First Black President.

Joy Reid was playing the same sort of game with Crist. The target audience for her smear wasn't anybody on the left. She was doing an Alinsky-type move trying to use the right's own morals against Crist. She and the left down in Florida never gave a hoot if Crist was gay or not. That was never once the point. The point was to shave off his voters on the right.

My favorite episode along this line was candidate Barack Obama's supposed opposition to gay marriage. This was always a lie from the beginning, a total sham, and everyone on the left knew it from the start. Once we got to Obama inauguration in 2009, however, actress, Obama booster and LBGT activist Anne Hathaway very publicly boycotted the Inauguration on the grounds that Obama had invited Pastor Rick Warren to give the Benediction. She was very angry because Rick Warren opposed gay marriage, she said. When it was pointed out that this position was exactly the same as Obama's, and that candidate Obama even appeared on national television with Rick Warren to say so, Anne was at a loss. What could she say, but the truth. And the truth is she knew Obama was lying, the problem is that Rick Warren wasn't.

You get in trouble with the left no only for telling the truth, but for not telling lies.

Looking Glass, it makes an ironic base for memes, when used with the phrasing for one of the pretentious beer ads:

"The Most Socially Just Warrior ...

... finished "Harry Potter" only because of the pictures.
... parallel parks a self-driving vehicle.
... takes money and candy from strangers.
... beats peace into your head with a bicycle lock.
... takes a knee, but never a stand.
... etc., etc., etc.

Stay Converged, My Comrades."

Couple this with small assortment of Pajama Boy-type images. Lather, rinse, repeat until completely triggered.

There is heavy SJW activity going on around the current SCOTUS cake case. One thing I find troubling though is the category mixing/error going on where jurists such as Associate Justice Elena Kagan asked “Why is there no speech in creating a wonderful hairdo?”

The issue is not supplying a standard wedding cake (a wonderful hairdo), anything in the shop was offered to the homosexual couple. What was not offered was custom designing a cake that celebrated homosexual 'marriage' specifically.

It should be noted that three other bakers were allowed to NOT make cakes with explicit Christian messages based on their free speech rights. Why is this baker not allowed to NOT make a cake with explicit gay marriage message? Those of are of the same category, Kagan's example is not and shows her intellectual failure up front and personal. What got my juices roiled was the failure of the lawyers arguing for the baker to point this out, letting the muddy waters remain.
