Burn it down.

That’s the mantra that a lot of conservatives started repeating a few years ago. Many of my friends on the Right had become sick and tired of a Republican Party that didn’t seem to give a damn about the people who vote Republican — or people who would vote Republican, if they thought it might make a difference in their lives. Ridding the GOP of the ghost of Bushism — that’s what the Trump campaign was really about, I think, and if Trump was a blunt instrument for that purpose, he has certainly been quite effective, as you might have noticed from the shrieking headlines decrying him as a “threat to our democracy.”

Burn it down — “our democracy” isn’t working, except for the benefit of the decadent elite who control it. Go do some research into the sources of donations to the Clinton Foundation, and ask yourself: “Was Hillary’s campaign really about feminism? Or was it about . . . Hillary?”

Your recent tirade against feminism’s “allies” on the Left deserves praise. Despite my opposition to radical feminism, it is at least more honest than postmodern Third Wave “pro-sex” genderqueer nonsense, the kind of idiocy that Everyday Feminism has made notorious. And if Zachary Antolak, a/k/a “Zinnia Jones,” a/k/a “Satana Kennedy” is a feminist, then what is feminism but a psychiatric disorder?

 

Is that a movement any sane person would want to be part of? However crazy radical feminists might be, at least they agree that “woman” defines an objective biological reality, rather than a subjective “identity.” The Orwellian word-games of Zinnia Jones and the transgender cult are an invitation to participate in a delusion, and sane people are accused of “hate” if we do not cooperate with their imperative demands.

When a 61-year-old woman is attacked by a 26-year-old man who calls himself “Tara,” whose comrades blame the victim for the attack, we have clearly reached a point where the lunatics are running the asylum.

How is the “capitalist imperialist white supremacist cisheteronormative patriarchy” responsible for transgender activists beating up old ladies? Or how is the right wing to blame for the depredations perpetrated by Hollywood liberals like Harvey Weinstein? Third Wave “intersectionality” theory is inadequate to the task of explaining such problems, and yet the dumbed-down ideology of 21st-century “feminism” insists that whenever anything bad happens to a woman, the Republican Party is to blame.

You, Ms. Murphy, seem to have seen through your “allies” on the Left. This may not necessarily cause you to develop any fondness for the Right, but at least you have realized that the Left does not have a monopoly on moral virtue, and that’s an important truth. Hold onto that tightly, and you might yet eventually acquire such a large supply of truth that someday, when one of your lefty allies calls you a “right-wing troll,” you’ll say: “Why not? I might as well become one. F–k you, lefties!”

Burn it down, Ms. Murphy. Burn it all down.
