‘Fat Justice’ Feminists Blame Reagan, Praise ‘Communism and Socialism’

Posted on | March 26, 2014 | 76 Comments

“We have so many people who can’t see a fat man standing beside a thin one without coming to the conclusion the fat man got that way by taking advantage of the thin one.”
Ronald Reagan, 1964

“Feminism sees women as a group and seeks to define and pursue women’s interest. . . .
“Feminist theory sees the family as a unit of male dominance, a locale of male violence and reproductive exploitation, hence a primary locus of the oppression of women.”

Catharine A. MacKinnon, Toward a Feminist Theory of the State (1989)

“It is one thing to ask us to rethink body image issues; it is quite another to intersperse the terms ‘patriarchy’ and ‘white supremacy’ throughout a decidedly unscientific lecture that claimed to be about health.”
Paige Willey, Swarthmore Independent

You might think that by now everybody understands feminism is an ideology of man-hating Marxist lesbian baby-killers.

God knows, I’ve explained this often enough, but apparently not everyone reads my blog, and so a Swarthmore University sophomore was shocked to encounter the truth at a campus event last week:

Fat Justice and Feminism
Nicole Sullivan and Cora Segal, two Boston-based feminist organizers, will lead a workshop on fat justice, which is a political stance that seeks to address the ongoing exploitation and oppression of fat people. From the war on obesity to the rise of deadly bariatric surgery, there is an unprecedented attack on fat bodies. This workshop seeks to map out the focal points of this oppression, while delving into the complex history of white supremacy and misogyny that created it. We will set forth an analysis and call to action to make fat justice a priority in women’s movements.

“Refreshments provided.” (Insert punch line here.)

Any student of Marxist theory must recognize that wherever you encounter “exploitation and oppression” discussed in the context of a “complex history” in pursuit of “justice,” the “organizers” are going to be Bolshevik comrades, no matter what the ostensible topic of their “analysis” may be. Where’s Joe McCarthy now that we really need him?

Highlights of Paige Willey’s account of the “Fat Justice” seminar:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI) is an entirely erroneous and useless metric, as it was invented by a “white, male, French astronomer,” Adolphe Quetelet. Thus BMI has “direct links to a white supremacist, patriarchal, colonizing, exploitative force.” . . .
  • For Segal and Sullivan, the 1960s and 1970s were notable because they welcomed “communism and socialism as viable alternatives to capitalism and exploitation.” . . .
  • Ronald Reagan is partially responsible for all suffering of fat people, as he “f*cked everything up.” . . .
  • “There is no scientific consensus whatsoever that fat people need to exercise more, or that fat is unhealthy. There is no evidence that [being] fat causes diabetes. Medical professionals are informed of this so-called knowledge by lobbying groups.”

Which comes first: the Marxism, the lesbianism or the fatness?

Willey was too polite to mention it, but a writer who attended a previous “Fat Justice” seminar in Boston last fall noted that both Segal and Sullivan admit they are “what American doctors would consider to be overweight.” And there’s this from Willey: “Sullivan self-identified as an ‘angry, man-hating lesbian’.”

No surprise there, nor are we surprised by Willey’s report that “Segal and Sullivan . . . made clear they were involved in other movements against police brutality, oil pipelines, and abortion regulations.” That is to say, feminism is a radical egalitarian ideology that arose within the 1960s New Left and, as such, feminists reflexively align themselves with all similar movements that are anti-capitalist, anti-religious and anti-American.

It is easy to make jokes about fat feminists, just like it was easy to make jokes about smelly hippies in the 1960s, but as absurd as they may seem, these lunatics are in deadly earnest about their ideologies. The hippies and feminists and other anti-American radicals have taken over our education system and have spent decades indoctrinating young people into their Marxist worldview. How else to explain why 60% of voters ages 18-29 voted to re-elect Barack Obama?

Paige Willey’s article about the “Fat Justice” seminar has been blogged at conservative sites everywhere: The Washington Free Beacon, Campus Reform, the Daily Caller, Gateway Pundit, and so forth. But how many conservatives have bothered to explain the Marxist ideology and New Left origins of the feminist movement? How many conservatives are taking feminism seriously? People need to wake the hell up.

Republicans lost the 2012 election in part because the “War on Women” meme resonated with those who have been indoctrinated in the feminist worldview. If Democrats run Hillary Clinton in 2016, do you think we will be able to ignore feminism as a major political issue?

    “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Gen. 2:24)

    In the natural order of things, the man and woman shall cleave to one another and be one. This is the natural order. But the feminists want to turn that order upside down and destroy it. This is the holy war you see in the world today. Remember those pictures from Abu Ghraib? What do you see? You see the feminist-socialists humiliating the heterosexual male Muslim, by making them pile up on each other naked, making them perform disgusting homosexual acts, American women humiliating these hetero males thru degrading acts of debauchery and torture. It’s part of the feminist agenda to destroy the heterosexual male, to degrade and emasculate him, whether he be Muslim or Christian or whatever.

    Feminization is in full swing here in the U.S. Look at them: The populous has been reduced to a pathetic bunch of whimpering, fearful little girls, afraid to even speak out against their tyrannical masters who lord over them with lies and deceit. It’s a satanic plot funded and propagated by a cabal of wealthy elite financiers who remain behind the scenes, invisible, so to speak, while reaping the profits from all the misery they have spawned.

    Meh, I figure I’m on so many watch lists by this point anyway that anything I say will sound like some kind of dog whistle to somebody. Besides, if I’m not buzzing around in somebody’s bonnet, I’m doing it wrong. Or something to that effect. Ooops, I said “bonnet”; the sisterhood will be upon me posthaste!

    Given the reply a “comedienne” gave to a tweet asking if she hated Muslims because they were guilty of, you know, actually killing and subjugating women (she loves Muslims, she just hates hypocritical Christians – read: all Christians – and then proceeded to tell a pro-life teen girl that she deserved to be murdered), I have no hope of this ever happening. Actually stand up to real misogyny? Pfft! That’s too hard! Let’s hang around Occupying Stupidity while drinking Starbucks and screaming about our ladyparts because nobody wants to subsidize our slutty sex lives! Wymyn power!

    It’s terribly easy to “stand up” to somebody who has enough self-control, class, and good manners to walk away from your dumb ass when you start shrieking like a banshee about your uterus as opposed to beating the ever-loving piss out of you for being a humongous assclown; it’s quite another to stand up to a guy who would have no problem burying you up to your neck and then using your head as target practice with thrown rocks.

    These people are proof God lives; He’d have to, because humanity wouldn’t have survived this long if this was a natural thought process. Satan must be having a field day propagating this stuff.

    Actually, yes, Marxism certainly is a religion! The Marxists think that they have no god, but they have an amazingly strong faith in something that no one has ever seen and has never been proven to work, anywhere in the world. Christians have belief that some miracles have happened, but the Marxists are still waiting for their first miracle to occur.
