PCR: "In A Triumph For Feminism Police Say A Mistletoe Kiss Without Consent Is Rape"

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Criminalizing a bit of Christmas fun has to make you wonder...

Is there any aspect of our life left into which the police state does not intrude?

Parents are regulated as to how they discipline their children. Spankings that were the tool of choice in my day are now illegal. Spanking is considered child abuse and can result in state seizure of the child and prosecution of the parent.

The state prescribes the terms on which children can be transported in cars. The cars themselves can only be designed within safety and fuel economy parameters determined by the state.

The unsupervised children at play of my generation no longer exist outside of small towns. Not that long ago I reported on the arrest of a mother on the grounds that she permitted an underage kid to play unsupervised in the front yard of the home on a cul-de-sac. The arrest was made on the false report of a neighbor. The police seized the opportunity to arrest a mother on the basis of “failure to supervise an underage child.” The family was traumatized. The mother was put in jail, the child in Child Protective Custody, and the father rushed home from work to see if he could rescue his family from the intrusion of the American Police State. It has happened to many, and Americans sit there sucking their thumbs, hoping the lion will choose another antelope.

The parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles of my day would all have been locked up. My entire generation would have been raised in orphanages.

When the state substitutes its judgment for that of parents, it takes the job away from them. Even within the same family children differ. Parents have to find the best approach for each child. Moreover, children who are always supervised never grow up. They learn neither responsibility nor street smarts. Children are even regulated how they can play. No pointing the finger and saying “bang, bang.” Even words are policed, some words no longer being permissible.

Perhaps someone has studied the impact on culture of such intense state intrusion into private life. And there are other culture-changing factors. Consider Identity Politics. The other day I listened to a recording of Barbara Streisand singing “A Woman In Love” from 1980, and Celine Dion’s “The Power of Love” from years ago. Both of these performers are gifted with beautiful and powerful voices. I wondered if they have a counterpart today.

I haven’t time to listen to much music, so I do not know. But the thought occurred to me that these are songs about love between a woman and a man. Moreover, in the official videos, the man is white.

Identity Politics is gradually delegitimizing heterosexual relationships, especially if the male is white, as Identity Politics defines the white heterosexual male as the oppressor of all other races and genders.

Having heard that in “advanced circles” women are subjected to peer pressure not to have relationships with “white, sexist, racist males,” I was wondering if today Streisand would have to have a black lover in her video and whether Dion would have to pitch her song to a lesbian lover.
Otherwise, would they be the hits they were during their time? Indeed, could Dion survive using the politically incorrect word, “lady”?

People are born into what exists. They have no experience of what previously existed. Therefore, they do not know what has been lost. This generational effect is the best ally of the police state.

People born into a country, in which unaccountable police can brutalize and murder and steal, born into a country, the government of which declares itself above both domestic and international law and the US Constitution, a country that ignores constitutional protections such as habeas corpus and due process of law, a country that based on a false claim that the country is indispensable and exceptional claims the right to destroy entire countries whose governments refuse to follow Washington’s orders, a country that claims the right to control explanations and that brands those who tell the truth to be conspiracy theorists, Russian agents, anti-semites, and enemies of the people, know no different. What to my generation is totalitarian horror is normal to them.

That country is the United States of America. It is the most shameful country on earth. The United States is a country whose rulers regard their hegemony as more important than the wellbeing of people and the life of the planet.

If the world is to survive America and if America is to survive as a country in which citizens are permitted free thought, free speech, to make their own decisions, to raise their own children and otherwise to be a free people, Americans will have to get angry at those who are destroying them and reply to the everyday violence that they experience in many different forms with violence of their own.

There are two forces in history. One is ideas. The other is violence. Karl Marx said that ideas, although sometimes effective, such as his own, can become the control mechanism of the ruling class. In contrast, Marx said that violence is the effective force in history.

In Marx’s analysis violence serves the working class, but this is no more than Marx’s assumption. Violence serves those who use it most forcefully.

Today Washington’s violence has brought America up against Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. Washington has outmatched itself.

US President Trump, by seeking protection from Israel against his own government, has re-ignited Arab hostility to Israel and to the US.

Today Israel is alone, defended only by Washington whose own stupidity has created powerful enemies.

Washington has proved itself incapable of leadership. Russia, China, and Iran have proven that they are capable of leadership, and they are also making it clearer by the day that they are fed up with Washington.

It is past time for Americans to get fed up with Washington, its lies and its abuse of power.

PCR: "In A Triumph For Feminism Police Say A Mistletoe Kiss Without Consent Is Rape"My response: When I see things like this occuring, I think of just one thing: DEFINITION OF TERMSFor example, by changing the definition of a term, what starts out as an innocent gester turns into a CRIME.Feminism is a CONCEPT from the PIT OF HELL and relies on the fact that the HUMAN HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL ELSE AND DESPARATELY WICKED.The END.

There are still places on this planet where women have not gone stark raving mad... Where they are slim,  attractive, feminine, appreciative of a compliment and know what a mutual romantic relationship is... Here is a hint, English is not the native language in any of these places...

not really true. the japanese have a different metric for social concerns than the west. an example is juvenile crime in japan. ask a japanese person about japanese juvenile crime and they will express great concern about the spike in juvenile crime by japanese kids. when you look at the actual stats juvenile crime for the entire country is about the same as juvenile crime for one major city in the usa and there are no murders, robberies or assaults to speak of. most of the crime is vandalism, from tagging public and private property to one famous "gang" of kids who went on a rampage destroying public garbage receptacles for a day or two.the emphasis on unmarried men has more to do with the current campaign to make more japanese babies than any real vexing trend in the reluctance to get married. japanese propaganda uses a different angle than western propaganda. the hierarchy of allegiance in japan is country, employer, community, family, self. by emphasizing the men who don't marry japan is trying to shame them as not being loyal to the social hierarchy by thinking of themselves first.

Are you that clueless or just applying wishful thinking?

Japanese grown-up men have been rejecting marriage in significant numbers for 25+ years now, in comparison to before 1989.
Knowledgeable PUA have identified the cause to be the same as in typical western countries:
"Western yuppie males are socialized, for instance, to believe in feminism, that women will behave logically like our equals and LET US KNOW what they want to do, etc. Nothing can be further from the truth."

way off. the decline in marriage in japan has much more to do with traditional socio economic reasons than feminism reasons. watch the video(which you clearly haven't done). the anecdotal evidence presented by the video is borne out by an ipsos poll regarding the same matters the girls talked about. japan still follows the traditional model of a family supported financially by the man. since the 1990 depression in japan the marriage has declined as men don't marry because they don't feel they can provide the financial means necessary to support a family.

Here's Katy Perry with the modern girl's take on romance:There's a stranger in my bedThere's a pounding in my headGlitter all over the roomPink flamingos in the poolI smell like a minibarDJ's passed out in the yardBarbies on the barbecueIs this a hickey or a bruise?Pictures of last night ended up onlineI'm screwed, oh wellIt's a blacked out blur but I'm pretty sureIt ruled, damnLast Friday nightYeah, we danced on tabletopsAnd we took too many shotsThink we kissed but I forgotLast Friday nightYeah, we maxed our credit cardsAnd got kicked out of the barSo we hit the boulevardLast Friday nightWe went streaking in the parkSkinny dipping in the darkThen had a ménage à troisLast Friday nightYeah, I think we broke the lawAlways say we're gonna sto-op, whoaBut this Friday night do it all againBut this Friday night do it all againTrying to connect the dotsDon't know what to tell my bossThink the city towed my carChandelier is on the floorRipped my favorite party dressWarrants out for my arrestThink I need a ginger aleThat was such an epic failPictures of last night ended up onlineI'm screwed, oh wellIt's a blacked out blur but I'm pretty sureIt ruled, damnLast Friday nightYeah, we danced on tabletopsAnd we took too many shotsThink we kissed but I forgotLast Friday nightYeah, we maxed our credit cardsAnd got kicked out of the barSo we hit the boulevardLast Friday nightWe went streaking in the parkSkinny dipping in the darkThen had a ménage à troisLast Friday nightYeah I think we broke the lawAlways say we're gonna sto-op, whoaBut this Friday night do it all againBut this Friday night do it all againBut this Friday nightT.G.I.F., T.G.I.F., T.G.I.F.T.G.I.F., T.G.I.F., T.G.I.F.Last Friday nightYeah, we danced on tabletopsAnd we took too many shotsThink we kissed but I forgotLast Friday nightYeah, we maxed our credit cardsAnd got kicked out of the barSo we hit the boulevardLast Friday nightWe went streaking in the parkSkinny dipping in the darkThen had a ménage à troisLast Friday nightYeah, I think we broke the lawAlways say we're gonna sto-op, whoaBut this Friday night do it all againI put the whole thing in, because I think it is instructive. Katy Perry's market appears to be pre-teen. I thank God my daughter currently doesn't know the words, despite being a big fan. I can't ban it, because it will just make it even more attractive, so I try to ignore it. Thanks, America, for your uplifting culture.

Back in Zorba's day it was songs like this that were the cutting edge:                                                                                                    Last night, I stayed up late to masterbate,                                                                                                                                        It felt so good, I knew it Would,                                                                                                                                                         Last night I stayed up late to masterbate,                                                                                                                                            It felt so nice, I did it twice,                                                                                                                                                             It goes on from there for many more verses, but you get the gist of it,                                                                                                Before birth control pills, you wore a rubber, but after the 5th or 6th round of sex , most guys(including Zorba) ran out of rubbers, so you stopped or took the chance of starting a family. We had much higher testosterone levels back then, thanks to the absence of chemicals like herbicide "7". So many teens got married back then. They didn't want their children to be labeled bastards. Today it is common for people to have grandchildren out of wedlock. It is a new world, so what, who are we to judge? WTF was the topic of the article I was responding to. I guess, that's par for being old.

I actually take the song to be ironic - the last line: "But this Friday night do it all again", sums up the utter pointlessness of the pathetic existence this lifestyle portrays, but I doubt your average 9 year old has the depth of understanding to get it. I always feel when I hear that line (which is rather more than I would like), I can hear Katy Perry screaming on the inside, trapped in a futile existence she can't escape from. It makes me feel better, anyway.

I remember, my dad "was like wtf?" when I'd bust Rage Against the Machine's Renegades, with their iconic "destroy the nations" chant in there. But he got the message. The 90s and early 2000s music of my generation was completely okay, just like its predecessors. The 2006 onwards generation of music if pure fvcking garbage and promotes pure ignance. IGNANCE, the most prized posession.

Love PCR, but he got it wrong on this one.  It's not the state that is doing this #metoo shit.  It's the MSM, which happens to be aligned against the head of state.  It's a good reminder who the real enemy is.

Deep State is trying its best to further separate/weaken us by pitting men against women.  The first post to this article says it all.  How can men not resent us?  We get preferential treatment in the work place.  You cannot grin at us but someone tells you are are sexist.  etc etc.  I say do not fall for the game.  real men real women see above the bullshit.

It's really quite simple.If a man is physically attractive, and he makes a suggestive or sexually provocative comment in the workplace, then it is just simple flirting.If a man is less-than-attractive, or he doesn't resemble Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, or Matt Damon, then it is sexual harrassment.
