They Get Paid to Make Tough Decisions

Posted on | January 1, 2015 | 26 Comments

You have to admire the work ethic of Twitchy staffers, who must have sorted through gigabytes of raving feminist lunacy to compile “The 10 dumbest Amanda Marcotte tweets of 2014.” Just a couple of representative Marcottean outbursts:

2015 prediction: Amanda Marcotte will keep making a fool of herself.

    I wonder how she sleeps at night (upside down) when she feels the world is out to get her every single day.

    Self deception is one hell of a drug

    Other brilliant predictions for the coming year: the sun will rise in the east, the media will get a story wrong, and Democrats will call Republicans obstructionist for not doing what Obama wants.

    Liberals and higher standards…a contradiction in terms.

    Mr, McCain:

    Followed the birth control topic back to “calculator” at Mother Jones.
    That bastion of economic wisdom showed Amanda’s life time cost as $22,000 without insurance and $3,000 with. Where, do you suppose, the other $19,000 comes from?
    Talk about cognitive dissonance and magical thinking.
    Insurance spreads risk, it doesn’t manufacture money (that’s the Fed’s job.)

    She is so stunningly stupid, paranoid and sociopathic it defies belief.

    The usual way, upside down with her claws dug into a rafter…

    I find it perfectly believable.

    Happy New Year!

    Oh, that’s a tough prediction!

    Planned Parenthood states that birth control pills cost between $0 and $50 a month, which works out o $600 a year. If we assume that Miss Marcotte requires the most expensive pills available, and she is potentially fertile from ages 15 to 50 (35 years), that makes her lifetime cost $21,000.

    Of course, she could simply require her POSSLQ to get snipped, which Planned Parenthood states costs about $1,000. Getting herself fixed could cost up to $6,000. Since she has stated, many times, that she never intends to have children, it would have been far more sensible to have taken care of the “problem” permanently years ago.

    $0 or $22,000, birth control is a modern scientific luxury. It’s like a trip to Disneyland. It may be fun, but it’s not a natural part of our existence. And no one but you should pay for it. If you want it work for it.

    Yeah. I wonder how inebriated he had to be to make that prediction.

    It’s interesting how intersectional gender feminists disguise their biological supremacist racial and sexual hatreds as a social and political struggle by the mere expedient of declaring men and heterosexuality to be social and political constructs, an ideology. Quite the clever con game. They don’t have a deep-seated hatred of men but of a “patriarchy.” That’s like me declaring blacks to be a political party and then saying I oppose their “politics” as a matter of principle. In fact what I would be opposing is their race.

    Strange hell, anyway. I like the roundabout tie-in to anime fans, which frequently overlaps with gamers, which means #GamerGate

    You should at least consider breeding a dog once before spaying. Mandy, not so much.

    Of course Marcotte continues being herself. Her entire following is composed of those who swallow her crap whole. Changing would mean alienating the only ones who can tolerate her.

    What Mzzzz Marcotte spouts is “An Amalgamation of Bull Shit”

    Unfortunately, there is actually someone out there who pays her to spout it.

    Maybe I’m just the first detail-oriented nerd to notice, but – the second tweet, dated 8/19/14, castigates conservatives for relying on bad faith arguments, while the first tweet, dated 11 days later, is itself a bad faith argument.

    Maybe they ought to be reversed to give extra attention to the DERP?

    I find it difficult to believe there is any simmering hunk of Manflesh so desperate that he would even CONSIDER “sleeping” with Amanda Marcotte. So why, then, would she even require birth control at all??
